Davido Lied About Buying A Private Jet – Capital NG

Davido who announced last week on social media that he was about to the the proud owner of a private jet has just been called out by a a Nigerian media outlet.

Davido had earlier revealed that the said jet would be arriving Nigeria in the coming weeks but it seems that may be far from the truth.

TheCapital reports that Davido didn’t buy any private jet.

According to the news outlet:-

Our source has exclusively revealed that what Davido went on air to announce is actually “fractional ownership” in which his financial commitment in the arrangement is meagre while the major financiers have chosen to play down their involvement to give Davido conceded prominence.

According to our source, conceding prominence to Davido in the private jet ownership is part of a business deal to make Davido very bankable in the showbiz industry.

This arrangement is to present Davido as a viable brand with a view to cornering lucrative deals from multinational businesses, countries and other foreign entities.

The guys at the vanguard of the jet ownership narrative are said to have agreed on a sharing formula with Davido when the deals start coming in.

The jet upon delivery would be deployed to Davido’s peripatetic needs and those of others in need of it. TheCapital has exclusively obtained information revealing a good number of Nigerians on this membership plan but whom have been reported to be jet owners.

Terry G shared a photo of himself at his dining table, having a meal of white rice and stew, but some of his followers felt sachet water was too low for someone like him.

The follower wrote: ‘Funny guy. this kind dining table no need see sachet water baba.”

And Terry G replied: “I drink my water period.”

He then proceeded to share a close-up photo of his sachet water.

DJ Ebro American on air personality discovers what ‘Legbegbe’ means

 

American OAP DJ Ebro finds out the story behind hit single 'Legbegbe' American OAP DJ Ebro finds out the story behind hit single ‘Legbegbe’

(Notion Magazine )

Mr Real’s, Legbegbe is one of the biggest songs that have come out of the country in recent months and American radio presenter, DJ Ebro has caught the bug.

Arguably one of the songs that influenced the trending Shaku Shaku sound, Legbegbe became the monster record that announced Mr Real to the Nigerian public and made him a household name.

But the success of his record is apparently not limited to Nigeria alone as even internationally, many are beginning to take notice of the song.

In a tweet posted by popular OAP, DJ Ebro, on Thursday, 11th May, he admitted to just finding out what ‘Legbege’ really meant and the story behind it.

OldMan Ebro

@oldmanebro

🤣🤣🤣🤣 … I just found out what Legbebe means and what happened with Seun Egbebe tryna steal iPhones!!! Crying real tears!! 🤣🤣🤣

The inspiration of the song is one that has developed several conspiracy theories, especially as it relates to Seun Egbegbe, even though the artist in a recent visit to the Pulse office continues to deny any link to his person.

Artists like Wizkid, Davido, Yemi Alade, Tiwa Savage have continued to fly the country’s flag across our shores and this is another acknowledgement of how Nigerian music has progressed and easily crosses over to international ears.

Brymo Singer proffers solutions to Nigeria’s problems

Brymo is of the opinion that the industry could be structured better (Jaguda)

brymo-shoot
Brymo is one artist who has never shied away from controversy or airing his opinions on topical issues and this time, he opines a resolution to various crisis affecting Nigeria.
When he is not releasing controversial singles, Brymo is on twitter claiming to have invented alternative music in Nigeria and ending up as a trending topic.

This time however, the singer took to Twitter in the early hours of Monday, May 14, 2018 to post his thoughts on things that should be done to make not just the entertainment scene but the country a better place.


Olofo’ro

@BrymOlawale
Make the entertainment industry truly profitable by first improving the price of records/movies,and structuring the local royalty system. Make piracy punishable by law and enforce it…this will create huge employment for young ppl, and boost proceeds from the sector..

In a strange way, Twitter is fast helping Brymo spread his ideas beyond his music and open him to a world neither public or private to continue to engage and share his thoughts.

On Sunday, May 6, 2018, BrymO said he was the inventor of the alternative music genre in Nigeria.

“In the Nigerian music scene, the ‘alternative’ was invented by me in 2013 as a cure to the ills of the mainstream, not to be a part of it.. to be ‘alternative’ means that the process of recording, performing, distributing and rating your work is different from the mainstream.”

His statement caused a bit of reaction online.

Skales Pissed singer walks out of interview

During a recent interview with TheNetngSkales, who was a guest on the network’s music breakdown show “Vibes with Victor,” stormed off in a temper after accusing the host of “attacking” him.

The pop star described the interview as an “attack”

 

The interview which had been going well for over 15 minutes, took a negative turn when the host of the show, Victor Okpala noted that he did not think the singer’s 2017 single – “Booty Language” was a genius song.

In the minutes following Victor’s assertion, the pair argued over the validity of the host’s statement while Skales insisted that the music journalist had no right to make such assertions.

 

As the debate heated up, Skales stated that he was getting pissed with the interview and subsequently stormed out of the interview.

Watch the video clip above.

Singer calls out Buhari as the worst president in the world

Skales has blasted President, Muhammadu Buhari.

The music star who could not hide his disdain for the present situation in Nigeria took to his Twitter page on Wednesday, January 10, 2018, where he called out Mr President.

Buhari is the worst president in the world yes I said it ….this human abuse has to stop …u lied to us wen I wanted to be voted in …shame !!! I love my country and I want the best for my country,” he tweeted.

MR LOVE

@youngskales

Buhari is the worst president in the world yes I said it ….this human abuse has to stop …u lied to us wen I wanted to be voted in …shame !!! I love my country and I want the best for my country

Skales’ comment appears to be based on the recent accusations levelled against men of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) which have come under serious fire for their alleged roles in beating up and illegally arresting innocent Nigerians.

MR LOVE

@youngskales

Worst government worst leadership my country is a tragedy and a joke and it’s crazy how we adapt to this nonsense….big up naija people…it’s time we come togeda and stand against this bullshit end sars and bullying from our president he doesn’t care about us

Skales is not the first artist to come out to blast President Buhari over certain issues in the country. Controversial musician and activist, Charly Boy back in 2017 led a protest in Abuja which he termed an Anti-Buhari protest. At some point in the protest, it was alleged that Charly boy was assaulted.

Tiwa Savage Let’s talk about the 3 men in singer’s life

Tiwa Savage is one beautiful and talented woman who has been able to remain not just relevant but a force in the entertainment industry.

Despite her fame and power, the music star has been linked to a number of men. Who wouldn’t want to be linked to a woman who has got so much to offer? She prides herself as one of the most accomplished women in Nigeria and isn’t even slowing down.

Guys, let’s just introduce you to a number of these guys who have been involved in the singer’s life.

1. Tee Billz

This was supposed to be one love story that would be used as a yardstick to measure other celebrity relationships turned into marriage but Alas! this wasn’t going to be. Before everything went south, Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz were inseparable, they shared a bond we hadn’t seen in a long time. So when they decided to get married, it didn’t surprise many as their wedding went to be one of the biggest celebrity weddings ever held in Nigeria. It was even televised live on one of the popular T.V. networks.

It didn’t take long before this once admired marriage crashed. First, it was Tee Billz who went online to call out his wife, Tiwa Savage for neglecting her duties as a wife and also accused her of infidelity. Then Tiwa Savage went on to grant an exclusive interview where she took her manager turned husband, Tee Billz to the cleaners. Since then there have been moves to reconcile the couple but it looks like they have both gone their separate ways.

2. Jamil

Yes! He makes this list because he is the number one man in Tiwa Savage’s life. Jamil is Tiwa Savage’s son she had with her estranged husband, Tee Billz. If you take a close look at Tiwa’s Instagram page, you won’t scroll through without seeing photos of the cute boy on her timeline.

Tiwa Savage loves her son, Jamil so much we think it would be difficult for anyone to come between the bond the mother and son share. Despite Tiwa’s busy schedule, she is always around her son and ready to show him off to the world.

3. Wizkid

If this article was written a few months ago, we are so sure Wizkid’s name won’t be in this list as no one ever imagined that he would be seen as one of the men in Tiwa Savage’s life. Well, life has a way of twisting paths as can be seen in the new found relationship between these two. First, it was the two music videos, followed by Wizkid’s unusual birthday shout out which kind of gave people the idea this two might actually have a thing going.

Even though it is not official, Tiwa Savage and Wizkid have both made it easier for speculators to conclude that they might be dating or having an affair. It is not clear but someday, we might just find the final piece to complete the puzzle.

Mavin Records 6 years after, how has the journey been?

 

mavin

Don Jazzy has made Mavin Records one of the leading record labels in the country and six years down the line, the label is celebrating a period filled with success stories and uncertain times.

Mavin-Obi-Somto-Photography-60

Following the dissolution of his former label, Mo Hits Record formed in partnership with D’banj, Don Jazzy founded Mavins Records, also known as the Supreme Mavin Dynasty on May 8 2012.

Pop music has undergone a continuous change in its sound and appeal in the country since the early 2000s and one of the major progenitors of this is Don Jazzy.

For eight years (2004-2012), the prolific beat-maker alongside D’banj successfully drove Mo Hits to the pinnacle of the Nigerian music industry, so it was expected that he continues the success story with the revamped Mavin.

Headies Awards 2018: Unforgivable Errors From Nominees List

It’s no more news that the organizers of what would be considered as Nigeria’s number one music awards show,  Headies Awards,  have fixed their challenges  and are set to organize the 12th edition of the event.

Headies Awards has always managed to spark controversies over the years since its inception. Without doubt Nigerians always look forward for the annual music awards show because even with it own flaws seems like the most credible Nigerian music-focused awards show there is. Shout out to the other music awards platforms out there. So whenever, there is a perceived misdemeanor from the organizers of the Headies, the outcries comes out loud.

Last year, unfortunately, the Headies Awards did not come around as we would have expected. The organizers put out a public statement saying it was taking a little more time to adjust, rethink and repackage the music awards platform. There was postponement and then more postponement all because the Headies Awards wants to give us something worthy of it’s hard earned reputation.

At long last, an official date for the awards ceremony has been revealed together with the names of this year’s nominees. Frankly, the news didn’t create a lot of buzz like it would have mustered in the past. Just maybe some of us started caring less if the Headies rolled by or not. But then here it is!

headies

Although it took a year long and some three months to plan the upcoming 12th edition of the music awards ceremony,  that has not made it totally devoid of visible errors. So a list of nominees was unveiled and a few errors have been spotted. One year and a few months is quite long enough to avoid this sort of error on the nominees list.

Here are some of the errors that would have been avoided if only a little more research was done by the awards panel.

 

According to the nominees list for ‘Producer of the Year, two of the nominees were credited for songs they did not producer.

First, Tekno is credited for producing ‘IF’ and ‘RARA’. There is no doubt that  Tekno rightfully produced ‘IF’, which was one the biggest songs last year he did not produce ‘RARA’. His label mate Selebobo holds production credit for ‘Rara’ which was released in December 2016. Towards the end of ‘Rara’, ‘Selebobo on the beat’ trademark peeks through.

headies 2

Again, Masterkraft is credited for producing Flavour’s ‘Virtuous Woman’, a track from ‘Ijele The Traveller’ album. Meanwhile the production  credit on that song should have been accorded to ace musician and music maker Cobhams Asuquo as the producer of ‘Virtuous Woman’. Well there is no doubt Masterkraft is responsible for producing Tekno’s hit ‘Yawa’.

 

Yet in another category for ‘Album of the Year’ an unforgivable error is spotted.

Brymo does not deserve to be nominated for that award in the upcoming Headies Awards 2018 because of the period in review July 2016 – December 2017. The album ‘Klitoris’ by Brymo was released in May of year 2016. That’s not all, ‘Klitoris’ was nominated for ‘Best R&B/Pop Album’ during the 2016 Headies Awards. An award category that was won by Kiss Daniel for his ‘New Era’ album. It’s too much of an oversight to have nominated Brymo’s album ‘Klitoris’ for an award in 2016 and 2018 by the Headies.

These errors found puts the meticulousness and attention paid to details of the awards panel in doubt. The errors here mentioned would have been easily avoided it a little more attention was given in crosschecking facts. It would be great if the organizers can correct these blunders before they are seen as being laissez faire by the easily irritable public.
