Breaking News: Iyanya Joins Mavins, Drops New Single

In what appears to be a surprise move, Iyanya and Don Jazzy made the announcement this morning that Iyanya is now offically a Mavin.

It had been earlier reported few months ago that Iyanya left his former record label Made Men Music Group (MMMG) owned by Ubi Franklin.

They also followed the announcement with the release of a new single #Up2Sumting featuring Don Jazzy.

Drama? GLO Drops Wizkid as Ambassador, Signs on the ‘Proud’ Timaya

Wizkid is no longer a Glo ambassador.

Yesterday, the singer took to his Twitter to announce the end of his relationship with the company, and this comes a year after the singer left MTN for the Nigerian telecoms company.

“Officially no longer with GLO, it was nice working with the amazing people at the company, wish the company the best in the future. Love,” the ‘One Dance’ singer said in his positive Twitter note.

Recall that last June, MTN dumped Timaya, Sean Tizzle and others and took on Wizkid and OC Ukeje.

In his Instagram note, Timaya explained that he expected a better offer from MTN but the company refused to improve the contract, and so he made the business decision to not renew his contract.

Now, Timaya has landed a Glo deal and he can’t help but brag.

“They say am proud now I know why cause I glo with pride,” said the Dem Mama Records CEO, adding, “Glo ambassador. Great Deal…. Thank u lord.”

Its Official… They say am proud now I know why cause I glo with pride. Glo ambassador. Great Deal…. Thank u lord.

It is unclear why Wizkid was dropped by Glo. We can’t wait for the explanation!

Are They Coming Back Together? Tiwa Savage Reportedly Gives Tee Billz Condition for Reconciliation

Six months after their marital woes rocked social media and remained top conversation for weeks, Tiwa Savage is reportedly set to make peace with her estranged husband Tunji ‘Tee Billz’ Balogun.

Speaking with Vanguard, a source close to the family revealed that the families of the couple have been meeting, seeking ways to reconcile. This revelation comes days after Tee Billz relaunched his Instagram page.

“You can take my word for it that a reconciliation is in the offing between Tiwa and Teebillz. She has told people close to her that she misses Tunji, and she wants him back in her life. Also, as their son, Jamal (Jam Jam) is growing older, Tiwa wants to ensure that he has a father figure around,” the family source tells Vanguard.

The source also added that Tiwa Savage has been meeting with other couples, seeking advice on how best to mend fences with Tee Billz. Also, she insists he must get help if really they will reunite again.

“Of course, she has also given a condition that Teebillz gets help so that all the issues that led to his public meltdown will not happen again,” the family source continued.

Last week, at the 3Thrones concert held at the Eko Hotel and Suites, the Mavin queen invited the veteran singing duo, Tunde and Wunmi Obe, to ask for marital advice.

“You’ve been married for so long, and you’re also in the limelight; how have you managed to keep your relationship intact for all these years? There’s a lot of pressure on young couples and I’m very jealous of you,” Tiwa asked the singers and they dished on how they made theirs work.

“Marry the man you love, communication, the only third party in your marriage should be God,” Tunde and Wunmi replied.

So, will Tiwa and Tunji join forces again? We can’t wait!

Review Of Davido’s EP – Son of Mercy

For Davido, the impetus to release his EP Son of Mercy (SOM) must have been overwhelming, perhaps because of the ongoing rivalries. The year 2016 began on a good note for the ‘son of a Billionaire’ before Baby Mama Drama splashed murky waters on him. At the end of 2015, his Kiddominant-produced The Money featuring Olamide Baddo robustly compares with Wizkid’s Baba Nla. Davido and Wizkid’s rivalry is almost reminiscent of an older rivalry between two Juju Kings, Ebenezer Obey and Sunny Ade.

Covering Fader Magazine and getting signed on by Sony Music was such a deal (and it still is). For fans fanning the embers of rivalry, Davido, at the beginning of the year seemed to be in a clear lead in the competition. But by popular design, things changed. Wizkid, by virtue of Drake’s One Dance and some other accolades, already takes the cake for 2016 but not without some fight from the son of a billionaire.

For the benefit of those who don’t know what it is, the extended play album is a glorified name for a handful of singles, popular amongst middle-level artistes trying to break new grounds. Named “Son of Mercy”, it would appear that Davido is obsessed about maintaining his social role as a dependant of sort. Popular as “Omo Baba Olowo” from his debut album, Davido has made some wealth of his own, but watching how the baby drama issue played out, he is still very much answerable to his father, the billionaire. Calling his album “Son of Mercy” name-checks a divine father to which Davido may also maintain a prodigal status. But it does look good on him, riches notwithstanding, to imbue his album cover with some measure of humility.

With five tracks lasting seventeen minutes, this EP is a prelude to the main meal, that elusive sophomore one can only hope doesn’t go the Wande Coal way. Davido is long overdue for his second album and as far as creative crisis goes, the sophomore sits in the middle of it all. Perhaps, that is why it is so elusive. If Davido had put songs like Aye, Skelewu, Gobe into an album, his meteoric rise would have been a bigger event. However the dynamics of releasing music has changed. This year’s biggest breakthrough star, Tekno, yet to release an album, is taking the market one single at a time.

davido

On the SOM, Davido features three acts: America’s Tinashe, South Africa’s Nasty C and Nigerian’s Simi. He manages to appear on two songs all by himself—Gbagbe Oshi and Return—recruiting producers like Shizzi on two songs, Spellz and Kiddominant. The Shizzi-produced Gbagbe Oshi heralds a dramatic entry with Davido trying for that dancehall twang Patoranking already owns. Then he leans into Fela’s Roforofo Fight when he is short on ideas on how to make the song captivating—a minor success if you ask me. On the other hand, the Shizzi-produced Return is a rough gem. He makes the most contemporary highlife song of this year, something close to a love song but enjoying a backbone of fine guitar riffs reminiscent of Kennery music god, Orlando Owoh. Ending at the two minute and fifty-seven second mark, this is the shortest and most delightful thing on this EP.

Coolest Kid in Africa is regular Davido aspiring to crunk music with his South-African counterpart, Nasty C. This song obsesses about money but not in that snobbish sense. Here money is interactive; he brags about using money to pull ranks and uproot marriages. It is a feel-good song, club-attuned, but doesn’t it troll the idea of mercy itself.

On How Long, the duet with Tinashe, Davido tries for that elusive quintessential American up-beat R&B love song. Recalcitrant in his love for the Yoruba language, he makes Tinashe rinse her mouth with some Yoruba words. With an insistent beat slightly suggesting a lover’s dance, Davido seems to ask that ever-green Dru Hill question—how deep is your love for me?—but in the least American way.

With Simi, Davido does a playful Makossa groovy track, Maga to Mugu. Produced by Kiddominant, obsessing about the female anatomy and invested in a cache of sexual innuendoes, this song features an aside from Simi when Professor Davido yields yet another sexually-related neologism. She laughs when she asks, “what are you talking about boy?” That is an eternally human studio moment.

In conclusion, the problem with the Son of Mercy EP is that it is a tad short. Davido should stop dawdling and release his sophomore album already!

Business or Pleasure? Falz and Simi dazzle in new photoshoot

Falz and Simi have been teasing us for ever with their music and friendship and its only normal to guess their relationship is more than professional. Quite frankly, it is their private lives and their personal businesses but what will life be without rumors especially if you are perpetually in the public eye.

We leave you to judge.

On a serious note though, there are talks of a joint EP between Falz and Simi, so will keep our fingers crossed for that.

Africa’s Stars to Pay Tribute to Dibango, Sunny Ade & Wemba at AFRIMA Awards 2016

The performance stage of the 2016 All Africa Music Awards, AFRIMA, will come alive on Sunday, November 6 at Eko Hotels & Suites, Lagos in Nigeria as African music stars line up for pulsating and emotive tribute performances in honour of Manu Dibango, King Sunny Ade and late Papa Wemba, three of Africa’s renowned music legends.

In partnership with the African Union Commission, AUC, and the support of the Official Host City, Lagos State, AFRIMA 2016 grand awards ceremony is preceded by The AFRIMA Music Village on Friday November 4, 2016, a non-stop music concert with over 40 African artistes performing live at the Waterfront, Bar Beach, Victoria Island, Lagos in Nigeria. Thousands of guests expected in Lagos for the various events.

manu-dibango

82-year-old Cameroonian saxophonist and vibraphone player Manu Dibango, is hailed for making an enormous contribution to African music as a whole. Nicknamed ‘The Lion of Cameroon’, Manu Dibango is recognised for developing a music style fusing jazz, funk and traditional Cameroonian music. His song “Soul Makossa” has influenced several popular music hits, including Michael Jackson’s “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin”, as well as his recording of that song with Akon, the Fugees’ “Cowboys”, and Rihanna’s “Don’t Stop the Music” and Comedian Eddie Murphy in his 1982 parody song “Boogie in your butt”.

king-sunny-ade

Artiste-in-Residence at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria, King Sunny Ade is classified as one of the most influential musicians of his time. The Nigerian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist and two-time Grammy award nominee is known for his pioneering of modern world music. His stage performance is characterised by dexterous dancing steps and use of the guitar.

papa_wemba_1_0

Papa Wemba, the late iconic musician from the Democratic Republic of Congo, who died at the age of 67 on April 24, 2016 during a stage performance in Cote d’Ívoire, also pioneered a blend of African, Cuban and Western sounds which became one of Africa’s most popular music styles. Dubbed the ‘King of Rhumba Rock’, Papa Wemba was also a fashion icon who popularised the La Sape look and style through his musical group Viva la Musica, with whom he performed on stages throughout the world.

Speaking about the purpose of the tribute, President and Executive Producer, AFRIMA, Mr. Mike Dada said: “Contemporary African stars will be pledging their loyalty to these grassroot legends of African music to show the beauty of their music through outstanding performances on stage during the AFRIMA awards. It is also a means of showing the younger generation that they can connect to music made by older generations of artistes and use this to unite the world through music.”

Mr. Dada described these three music icons as the ‘voices of African music and the epitome of Africanness’.

Some of the top African artistes billed to honour the legacy of the three African legends include: Kiss Daniel (Nigeria); Diamond Platnumz (Tanzania); Brymo (Nigeria); Wax Dey (Cameroon); Seyi Shay (Nigeria); Fally Ipupa (DRC), Yemi Alade (Nigeria); Victoria Kimani (Kenya); Tiwa Savage (Nigeria); Aramide (Nigeria); Niniola (Nigeria); YCee (Nigeria); TJAN (Nigeria) and Flavour (Nigeria) among others.

5 Fela Anikulapo Kuti Songs we totally love.

It is Fela Kuti’s 78th Post humous birthday and in celebration of the legend, we compiled a list of his songs that have redefined the game for African Music. These songs were chosen based on their musical composition content and arrangements.

Fela’s music was a hybrid between Classical Jazz and African musical movements, fusing African rhythms with Pigeon English lyrics. Jazz music is most commonly consumed by discerning high mobility elites but it is interesting to see how Fela could make his music appeal to the average street joe.

All these songs have a few things in common. Beautiful melodies, mid tempo percussions, jazzy solos and amazing arrangements. Confusion Break Bone has to be the most complex of the lot. At a point, the song appears to be in 3 different keys at the same whilst maintaining the integrity of the original key.

So for our top five, here you go.. Let’s know what you think in the comments.

1. Confusion Break Bone

2. Beasts of No Nation

3. Palaver

4. Water no get Enemy

5. Overtake don Overtake Overtake

Davido Goes International With Tinashe Collaboration – How Long

Davido has officially entered a new era as he drops this much anticipated song ‘How Long’ featuring American superstar, Tinashe.

This is his first official single with his new label, Sony Music International since singing earlier in the year.

This is sure to shut the mouth of critics after he has had almost a year of music drought.

Enjoy the video.

Is Wizkid About To Drop A Hit Song Featuring Drake?

Looks like Wizkid is about to drop some new singles after a long break. He just tweeted that ‘6god’ (Drake) and himself are about to school everybody.

Falz & Simi, Chidinma & Flavour: 4 Celebrity Friendships That Give Us Major Couple Vibes

From Chidinma and Flavour to Falz and Simi, meet the celebrities who are not dating but give off major couple vibes.

1. Simi and Falz

The singers have a strong musical musical chemistry and have been spotted hanging out quite a number of times. However, they maintain they are just good friends. During separate interviews, Falz and Simi admitted that they don’t mind dating. However, Simi is already in a relationship. Still, we get the “couple vibes” from them whenever we see them together.

2. Banky W and Adesua Etomi

Banky W’s relationship status has recently been the subject of fan’s scrutiny particularly after his best friend, Capt. Demuren tied the knot with OAP, Toolz in May. Then he recently struck a friendship with beautiful Nollywood actress, Adesua Etomi and fans have refused to allow him breathe.

The E.M.E boss has been teased a number of times as dating Adesua; especially since she has played his love interest twice in his musical videos. The two recently gave fans mega Couple vibes after they were cast as bride and groom in Kemi Adetiba’s The Wedding Party.

Banky and Adesua are both single, so maybe they should give dating each other a shot. #JustSaying.

3. Chidinma and Flavour

Chidinma and Flavour first sparked dating rumours last year when they shared a passionate kiss in the video of their collaborative hit, Ololufe. Since then, the two have been spotted cozying up to each other on several occasions. During Phyno’s concert in November last year, the singers made fans go crazy when they kissed again during their performance.

Despite fans rooting for the two to become an item, Flavour and Chidinma insist they are nothing more than friends. “Chidinma is just my friend. Our strong vibe comes from how deeply we feel about music,” Flavour stated.

4. Yvonne Nelson and John Dumelo

Ghanaian actors and best friends, Yvonne Nelson and John Dumelo should definitely be a couple.

The stars, who fondly called each other ‘JoVon’, are so involved in each other’s lives you can’t help but think they are dating. Last year, Yvonne and John got into a very public and nasty feud during the #DumsorMustStop campaign headlined by Yvonne, and the besties were at loggerheads for a while. You can read about the fight here.

A few weeks ago, they finally squashed their beef and resumed sharing goofy and intimate photos and videos on social media. On why they may never date? Yvonne previously mentioned she fears a romantic relationship with Dumelo may not last. Our Couple vibes radar says otherwise, but we’ll give them the benefit of doubt.

The JoVon effect ?

When the announcement was made months ago that King Sunny Ade (KSA), Asa, 2Baba and Dbanj would light up the stage of the Eko Atlantic on Independence Day this year, many would have thought it would be a low-key affair, but from what we saw that night, it certainly wasn’t!

The Supremacy Concert, an initiative of the Main Group and the finale of the much talked about Made-in-Nigeria Festival attracted music fans from far and near. While it would not be the first time the Eko Atlantic has played host to a concert but the Supremacy Concert would surpass all.

The concert was opened by the amiable Sola Mogaji who introduced herself to the teeming crowd at the Atlantic and also went on to introduce the music superstars billed to perform.

First to lead the pack was the living legend who just clocked 70 years of age, King Sunny Ade popularly called KSA. The legendary musician who was seen in a Made-in-Nigeria bespoke Atiku outfit sent the crowd into nostalgia by bringing back his evergreen songs back to back. Many would have thought his septuagenarian age would hinder him from showing his electrifying dance steps but that was not the case as he danced gracefully to the delight of the crowd.

Innocent Idibia popularly called 2Baba was next to perform at the Atlantic. He performed in his native Akwa-Ibom outfit with dark shades. He went on to reel out his hit songs from Implication to for Instance and more, a move that left the crowd asking for more. 2Baba didn’t disappoint his fans as he also performed his new singleOfficially Blind which was chorused by the fans throughout the period he performed.

In between these performances, the legendary DJ, the one fans love to call cool DJ JimmyJatt was also on hand to deliver judgement on the wheel of steel at the concert. Fans of the pioneer DJ danced without holding back as they listened to the range of hits he mixed from his music box.

Next on was the Internationally Recognised Singer and Entertainer – Asa. Asa was seen wearing her trademark Nigerian fabric blouse while performing at the event. She literally blew away everybody, she performed hits from all her albums such as Bibanke, Akinyele, Mama mi, Satan be Gone, 360 and others. She also reminded everyone present how much of a good guitarist she is as she latched on to her guitar playing old songs much to the singing delight of all present there.

Asa then surprised everyone present when she attempted to praise the MaIN Founder, Prince Segun Oniru by singing the popular Fuji music even though she confessed her band who are white men could not replicate the Fuji beats for her, a move that sent the crowd into rapturous laughter.

The Koko Master Dbanj came on stage in dramatic fashion after his ‘Hype man’ Jimmie, engaged the crowd in wild chants to welcome the emergence of the Ejanla (big fish as Dbanj calls himself sometimes). Dbanj did not just perform for the audience, he entertained them too keeping them on the edge of their seats for most of the night, with several hits such as Suddenly, Emergency, Mr. Endowed and other hits.

Olamide Releases New Single; ‘Orobo’ Ahead of YBNL UK Concert

Ahead of what has been described by many as the biggest UK invasion by the YBNL crew, YBNL CEO, Olamide has dished out another banger titled Orobo. The amazing Fuji rendition was produced by Young Johnn and once again displays Olamide’s dexterity as a lyricist. His ability to communicate to his audience through relatable lyrics is just about what keeps Olamide on top of his game. Interestingly, on this single, Olamide creatively recreates US top charting single Panda by Designer with his unique razz flavour. This is ultimately another perfect song from the rapper.

The rapper and the entire YBNL crew- Adekunle Gold, Lil Kesh, Viktoh, DJ Enimoney, YBNL princess; Temmie are currently in London for the anticipated YBNL UK concert which will hold on Saturday, the 9th of October, 2016 at the Eventim Hammersmith Apollo. Ticket sales are said to be going off the roof as fans of YBNL crew in London are excited to have all of YBNL artistes on one stage. Although the crew had an amazing concert in the UK last year, this will be the first time the entire YBNL family will perform on one stage in the United Kingdom and there is no telling that it will be an amazing experience!
