Brain Jotter, the Nigerian skit maker, has finally met with Mike ‘Gentleman’ Ejeagha, the ace highlife singer.

‘Ka Esi Le Onye Isi Oche’, a song by Ejeagha, started to gain widespread popularity earlier this month after Jotter adopted the soundtrack for his hilarious dance moves.

The dance moves involve two or more people facing opposite directions and walking towards each other. They then meet at a point where they do the funny leg dance before one starts chasing after the other while a part of the chorus “Gwo Gwo Gwo Ngwo” is played in the background.

The song has also been recreated over 20,000 times on TikTok with many Nigerians, including celebrities, joining the challenge.

On Sunday, the skit maker sought to meet with the highlife legend, adding that he wanted to gift him the sum of N2 million.

But in an Instagram post on Monday, Jotter shared a photo he took with Ejeagha while expressing joy in finally meeting him.

“So happy I did this. Story coming soon,” he wrote.

Ejeagha is considered one of the pioneers of the highlife genre in Nigeria and was influential in the evolution of music in the Igbo language for over 6 decades.

Omowunmi, the wife of the late singer Mohbad, has accused Joseph Aloba, her father-in-law, of being an “enemy”.

Mohbad died on September 12, 2023, and was buried the following day. On September 21, his body was exhumed by police for an autopsy.

Eight months later, the autopsy failed to determine the cause of death as the singer’s body had decomposed when tests were conducted.

In a post on her Instastory on Wednesday, Wunmi alleged the “greatest enemy” of Liam, her son with Mohbad, is the singer’s father.

“Liam’s greatest enemy is his grandfather. Life is funny,” she wrote in the now-deleted post.

David Hinds accuses Burna Boy of disrespecting Reggae band at German festival

Published

By

David ‘Electric’ Hinds, the lead singer and guitarist of Steel Pulse, has called out Burna Boy for allegedly disrespecting the Grammy award-winning Reggae band, at a German festival.

The 2024 Summer Jam Festival was held in Germany from July 5 to 7.

The event headliners were Burna Boy and Jamaican artistes such as Skillibeng, Konshens, Busy Signal, Lila Ike, Beenie Man, and Ky-Mani Marley.

In a comment beneath an Instagram post about the festival, Hinds claimed Burna Boy arrived at the event with a large entourage and demanded additional dressing rooms to accommodate his team.

He accused the Afrofusion singer of attempting to force him and fellow Steel Pulse members out of their dressing room.

Hinds argued that Burna Boy and his crew’s behaviour cannot be a part of Reggae’s culture, which promotes peace, love, and unity.

The reggae artiste also criticised the festival organisers for allowing his band to be “bullied” by Burna Boy’s security team.

“Burna Boy and security crew fully disrespected us at Steel Pulse, trying to kick us out of our dressing room so he could have 4 dressing rooms for his massive entourage,” he wrote.

“Selwyn Brown, original member of Steel Pulse, was livid and our team stood our ground and told them to beat it and you can’t do that to people, especially to a band that has paved the way for Reggae music.

“Summer Jam why do you have a full security team that think they can come in and bully people? Who the hell does Burna Boy think he is?

“And because of us refusing to leave, the security team proceeded to build a barricade of a blacked out chain linked fence that split the hallway between our dressing room and his dressing room making it feel like we were in prison or something.

“I hope that these legendary reggae festivals realize that this can’t be apart of the reggae culture. That’s Babylon business. We don’t treat people like that.

“Please recognise this because Steel Pulse was fully disrespected. Reggae promotes Peace, Love, Unity.. stand up for your rights, we must never give up the fight.”

As of the time of this report, neither Burna Boy nor the organisers of Summer Jam have responded to the allegations.
