Mr Eazi

Mr Eazi reveals why he quit his $6,000 per month job for music

Nigeria singer, Mr Eazi has revealed why he went into music.

In an interview with Beat Fm, the singer revealed he had to dump his job which paid him about six thousand dollars per month in order to find fulfillment in music.

According to him, his family hated him for leaving his job but love him now since his breakthrough after two first shows in London.

“After I came back from Ghana, I got a job in oil and gas in Port Harcourt that paid about six thousand dollars per month but I quit because I was not finding fulfillment in it. I mean it was the same thing everyday, the same routine over and over again.

“The decision to quit the job finally hit me when my boss’ wife left him even with all the money he had.

‘After I left my job, I got my Masters degree and with all that qualification, I started selling phones in computer village and everyone thought something was wrong with me.

“Even my mother started praying special prayers for me but my father didn’t add that final voice that would have decided my fate.

‘My break finally came after I got an invite to do two shows in London that made me twelve thousand pounds which I used to shoot two videos. When I told my mother what I did with the money, she stopped talking to me for about three weeks.

Vector Nigeria

Vector Calls Out M.I After Many Failed Attempts To Collaborate With Him

It is actually very surprising that Hip-hop heads Vector and MI Abaga have unfortunately been able to strike a collabo.

The recent viral LooseTalkPodcast has apparently revealed a lot of things. One of such is the fact that MI and fellow revered emcee Vector have never been put on a track together.

Vector just called out MI for his statement when he said: “I am the guy who wants to rap with everybody“. The ‘King Kong’ crooner expressed his frustration about the missed chances while challenging MI Abaga to live up to his words.

We hope MI responds positively and then we might have both rap maestros together on a track.

Sound Sultan

Sound Sultan On Why “Pon Pon” Sound Is Reigning

Nigerian singer, Sound Sultan has said the reason why “Pon Pon” sound is occupying the space right now is not about the artists, but its immense demand and supply.

Recall that in June, Davido took shots at Wizkid, claiming ‘Pon Pon’ is the only sound reigning.

“Nah pon pon sounds dey reign now oooo,” the “Fall” singer shared on Snapchat. “ No Jonze, all other sounds na the least for now.”

Then Wizkid responded with “Medicine” produced by Masterkraft in July, and he then promised his fans more sounds from the other side.

Now, Sound Sultan in an interview with HipTV said;

“It is not about the artist alone, it is about the demand,”

“If the demand is not there, people will not supply that. For me, I feel it is all about the demand and supply.”

Kiss Daniel

Kiss Daniel recently shared a post on Instagram that makes us wonder if he has found love or been heart-broken. Kiss Daniel might been going through heart break, following a snapchat post he just made, captioned ‘Money Aint Everything, Love is!

Dagrin Brother

Olamide is my favourite rapper –Trod, Dagrin’s brother

April 22, 2010 is a date many wouldn’t forget easily in the Nigerian music industry. On that day, gifted rapper, Olaitan Olatunbodun, aka Dagrin, breathed his last, days after he was involved in a horrific car crash. Even though seven years have gone past, the pain of his death is still raw and many still wonder what the Pon Pon Pon singer would have accomplished if he hadn’t been cut short in his prime.

However, Dagrin’s younger brother, Olatunbosun, aka Trod, has appeared on the scene and he says he is here to continue what his elder brother couldn’t finish. Trod sounds so much like Dagrin and their flows are so similar, it is not hard to decipher that there’s a blood connection between them.

Speaking with Sunday Scoop on his new song, Wild Mind, which has been enjoying favourable airplay, Trod said, “The song was actually recorded two years ago, but I just decided to shoot the video now. Since the death of my brother, everything has been on a low key, so this song is meant to announce my presence and let the whole world know that the spirit of Dagrin is still alive. I am here to continue what he couldn’t finish and I’m not joking about it. My eyes are set on the throne and I wouldn’t rest till I wear the crown. It took me so long to shoot the video because I’m a student of Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijebu Ode, and I have to concentrate on my studies, so I don’t have the luxury of time.”

Speaking on the reaction of his parents to his career considering the fate that befell his late brother, he said, “My parents cannot decide for me. I have so much interest in music and I decided to go for it because I know it would profit me. Besides, everybody in my family loves music, so it’s all good.”

Trod also shared some of the things he learned from Dagrin. “I was quite young when Dagrin passed away. I was in boarding school, so we only used to talk on the phone. Fans should expect good lyrics and great vibes from me, just like Dagrin gave them. This is a new generation and the ways of making music have changed from what it was during the old generation of Dagrin; but I will be borrowing some of Dagrin’s style so as to attract his fans, and also put in my own flavour because I have fans too. One of the things I learnt from Dagrin was that he was independent and determined; he went for whatever he wanted without backing down. He also thought a lot and made a lot of sense. Till date, I don’t know any rapper that is better than him.

It was really devastating when I heard about his death; I was shocked and pained because I knew he had a lot to offer. But since nothing could be done to change the circumstance, we just had to move on,” he said.

Responding to critics who say he is just an usurper trying to ride on his brother’s legacy to get cheap popularity, he said, “I have truly heard that a lot but I don’t care. If I listen to what is being said, that would weigh me down. I just have to do my thing, and I believe that the people who would love me would do so regardless. It is not possible for everybody to like you; I would just try my best to keep making good music.”

On the notion that Olamide has taken over his brother’s style, he said, “Olamide is my best rapper and I love him so much. I have also learnt a lot of things from him and I hope to feature him soon. I don’t hold anything against him. I don’t think Olamide copied Dagrin’s style; their music only sounds similar. We’re all in the game and every one is doing their thing.”

Omotola Jalade

I Care Less What People Are Saying About My Music – Omotola Jalade

Veteran actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, in a new interview with The Entertainer, talked about her marriage, acting and more.

Read excerpts from the interview below…
You took a rather long break from the movie industry, why?
I have been around but I have been building my businesses, film village in Badagry and some other personal international projects. I took time to creatively re-organise myself.

How far have you gone with the film village?
So far, my husband and I have over 20 plus acres of land in Badagry. He has his for his ‘Aquatic Jungle Entertainment’ and I have mine for the film village. We have started with the first phase, which will have a cinema and other attractions. It is in its early stages, but surely, we are making progress.

How soon would all these be ready?
That won’t be this year but maybe, next year. We are talking to some investors because the film village is quite a huge project. Buying lots of plots of land could be stressful. But at this stage, we are building gradually.

Talking about the film village in Badagry, are you in partnership with the Lagos State government?
No, not now. I had a meeting with the former governor (Babatunde Fashola); he knows about the project but I haven’t visited the new governor (Akinwunmi Ambode) yet. I also started another project in Ikeja, it is like a smaller version of what I am doing in Badagry. It is called The Double Doors Film Village. So, these are things that I have been putting together.

How do you connect closely with your co-stars when playing s*x scenes, I mean the chemistry between actors in movies?
Sometimes you can tell while watching a movie that a couple doesn’t have chemistry. It is not something you can force. Some actors are very good at acting it. But sometimes, when it has to do with love, relationship, it’ is not easy to play. When you want to act like you love the person, there are some natural acts and gesticulations that you can’t force. But if you are a well-trained actor, you would not find that difficult. There are some little tricks to these things that some actors don’t know. You can make it happen and look real too, especially in love and s*x scenes.

Talking about the film, Alter Ego, how did you come about having so much chemistry with Wole Ojo?
I have heard about him so much but the movie was the first time we got together. When we got to know we would be acting together, we spent a lot of time playing; we played very rough. I understand the power of being so close to your love interest in a movie, so we became very close even before the shooting. We ate together and spent lots of time together, and had each other’s interest at heart. It helped us to bring out our best in Alter Ego.

In Alter Ego, lots of movie critics believe you over played the raunchy scenes, did that get at you?
When I wasn’t even that confident, I starred in a movie called The Prostitute, which was released 22 years ago. If I didn’t die then, is it now? I am ready for them. I don’t even like watching myself on screen. If I do, I will feel like burning inside and might even start crying because I criticise myself a lot. Sometimes, I pity those watching especially when I poorly do a s*x scene. I would be like ‘what was that for?’ It can kill the whole movie when it’s poorly done. For me, if a s*x scene is not going to be well done, then why do it in the first place? If you must kiss, you should be able to kiss well; make it professional.

How have you succeeded to reinvent yourself? Every year you look younger and better in your role interpretation?
I think it is knowing what matters and being authentic and real. But in all, you must make sense. I am blessed that at a very tender age, I was able to find God, so my Christian values have been able to let me know what is wrong and what not to do. That way, the core me is real. I no dey form. With me, what you see is what you get. I don’t have time to live fake lifestyle. Whenever I come out, it is still about the real me. Talking about work, I never take it for granted. From the beginning of my career, I knew what I wanted. I had a vision and kept staying focused. Even now, I remain undistracted. The more you are inspired and focused, the more you are relevant.

Any regrets marrying early?
Not, not at all! It is one of the biggest blessings of my life because I look back and ask myself ‘if I hadn’t gotten married then, would I have married now?’ It is hard nowadays. It is difficult to find someone who would love you for who you really are and not the image they see on the screen or the image they have in their minds of who you are. I understand what my unmarried colleagues are going through; it is not easy. Having said that, I also think getting married to my friend, a wonderful, confident and powerful man has really helped me. He allowed me to have that stability and still go out there and fly.

What happened to your music career?
I want to get back to the music industry so bad. I am coming back. It is not like I care what people are saying but I will be back soon.

Would your son produce your songs?
Well, I would like him to produce but we fight a lot. I used to complain a lot before but I have stopped because I know he takes after me. He knows what he wants and goes for it. I am always like ‘you’ve not even started yet and you are always acting so stubborn and pushing me around’. I don’t think we can ever get to work together because we are both headstrong. But on the other hand, I would love to work with him because he is a very fantastic producer. I just hope someday we can find a balance, agree and just let it happen. I want to do music in a way that I would always be at concerts. I don’t want to be like Tiwa Savage because that is her first career and I have movies as my first. I can’t compete with Tiwa. I like to express myself with music and I like to perform where people can come and watch me. So, I am planning on shaping my music career towards that end.
