A Month To Remember – Clash Of Titans As Wizkid, Davido, Iyanya, Wande Coal, D’Banj, Jesse Jagz, Leriq, Orezi All Get Set To Release Albums

September-To-Remember12

September might just be the most important month in the Nigerian musical calendar this year. This September, legends shall justify their existence, show us why they are forces to be reckoned with, show us that experience sometimes is the greatest addition an artist can have to his talent. September might just be the month everyone has been looking towards, a clash of titans and a revelation of musical trojan horses. In September, the world shall have the privilege of witnessing compilations from Nigeria’s biggest and most talented artists.

Wizkid has announced he would be dropping an album, Davido a.k.a Omo Baba Olowo would also be dropping an his sophomore album. These two might have the fiercest rivalry Nigerian music has ever had. They are the Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi of Nigerian music, though Davido is looking like Messi since he’s been bagging all the awards.

Wizkid dropped his Ayo album not too long ago and to be objective the album was nothing compared to his classic ‘Superstar’ album. Rumour has it that he rushed the release of that album in order to get free of the shackles of his ex record label EME. I’m of the opinion that no matter the excuse an artist should not drop weak stuff ,apparently rolling stone disagrees as the album was featured in the magazine. The ‘Ayo’ album has some good songs such as Bombay, In My Bed and a few others but it wasn’t a crazy album in its entirety. This is why there is so much anticipation for his new album.

This has been basically the opposite of Omo Baba Olowo’s recent exploits. Davido can be said to be arguably the most successful Nigerian artist in the last two years without dropping an album. He got all the shows, all the awards and crowned it all with the fan favourite monster jam”Fans Mi’ featuring MMG’s Meek Mill. Davido who a lot of people used to say had no talent and depended on his affluent background has officially silenced the critics and he will give us another dose with his new album in September.

In September also, Nigerians would be treated to a new album from MMMG superstar Iyanya. This album definitely looks like it would be fire with the singles doing so well such as Applaudise and Gift both featuring superstars Diamond of Tanzania and Don Jazzy. For Iyanya’s new album all we can say is anticipate, his last album was incredible , but it was a D’tunes production. Would iyanya be able to do better without the instrumental maestro?…anticipate.

The next on our list is an artist i believe is one of the most talented in this country. He is non other than the singer rapper producer extraordinaire *drum roll* Jesse Jagz Abaga. Jesse jagz is one of the artists in this country that we can say that no matter the tide no matter the storm, the quality of his content never sinks. He fell out with Chocolate City and went on his own and in one year, gave us two albums which were incredible. Chocolate City re-signed him not to long ago and we saw he’s still got it from the CBN album. Now Jesse Jags his highness shall bless us with another album in September”All hail the king”

Another album we would be expecting is the long awaited Leriq album. The Aristokrat records producer has shown Nigeria that he is one of the best, with or without Burna Boy . The compilation shall feature Africa’s biggest and most talented artists. From Nneka to Cassper Nyovest to Efya ,Wande Coal, Seyi Shay, Bez and so many others. We have heard “Comment Tu T’appelle” we have heard “Say You Love” and judging from just those two, wouldn’t u love to hear the whole album? …..anticipate.

The next album has my heart racing. This is the most anticipated, most overdue album Nigerian music has ever experienced. Wande Coal. Wande coal dropped arguably the best album Nigeria has experienced in “Mushin To Mo-hits”. Since then his career has been so unstable. He has since dropped some very good jams and has his own record label. He hasn’t dropped an album in about 8 years and he is about to drop one and how can we not a anticipate it when the first single from it is “Ashimapeyin”. Wande Coal is truly blessed, he has managed to stay as relevant as possible in the music industry where others would have descended into obscurity. Rumour has it that marketers are fighting to market the album, why wouldn’t they? Wande Coal is going drop this album on us and we would gladly take the. Anticipate September

In September, we would also be seeing an album from another former member of Mo-Hits, D’Banj. Dbanj who a lot of people have said to be gone with the times is going to attempt a come back in September. Singles like ‘Knocking On My Door’ and ‘Extraordinary’ are doing quite well so lets hope for the best.

Alhaji Orezi who says he would compete with the likes of Wizkid and Davido would also most likely drop an album. The alhaji has been doing a extremely well with his singles and one might say this is the best time for him to drop an album.

All we can do is wait, anticipate and clear our playlists because September is really going to be one to remember.

I have my torchlight looking for the artistes that will change their dates based on the extreme competition September will be offering. I WILL NOT HESITATE TO BASH THEM!

By

A Kaduna Chief Magistrates’ Court, on Thursday ordered a 30-year-old man, Garba Aliyu, to sweep the court premises for three weeks for stealing women’s purse.

Aliyu was convicted and sentenced after he pleaded guilty to theft. The Magistrate, Ibrahim Emmanuel, said the convict’s plea had saved the court the pains of a prolonged prosecution, adding that the punishment would have been more severe if he had not pleaded guilty.

Emmanuel said that in arriving at the sentence, the court took into consideration the fact that the convict was a first time offender who was remorseful. He also advised him to be of good behavior, stressing that the court frowned at acts of violence.

“Desist from such acts in future and become a better citizen and human being,’’ he advised.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp. Chidi Leo, told the court that on May 7, the convict criminally trespassed into the shop of one Adanna Ebuka located at Kano Road along Ahmadu Bello Way Kaduna.

Leo said that the convict went into the shop and stole a purse belonging to the complainant while pretending to buy a loaf of bread. He added that during police investigation, the said purse was recovered from the convict.

The prosecutor said the offence contravened the Penal Code of Kaduna State, 2017.

Mayorkun debunks knowing Nicki DaBarbie, announces intent to sue despite her arrest

Nigerian singer Mayorkun has publicly responded to the arrest of controversial influencer Nicki DaBarbie, strongly denying her allegations of misconduct.

In a recent tweet, the artist expressed his disbelief at the accusations and announced his intention to pursue legal action against DaBarbie, despite her current detention.

Mayorkun clarified that he has never encountered Nicki DaBarbie in person and was entirely unaware of her existence until the allegations surfaced.

Addressing the serious accusation that he and fellow artist Skiibii attempted to spike her drink for ritualistic purposes, Mayorkun emphasized his innocence and condemned the ease with which such claims spread online.

Reacting to the allegation, Mayorkun said; “You know, I was going to let this remain as a court case but when I checked the comments under some of the blogs where these ridiculous allegations were posted, I was quickly reminded of how gullible most people are on the internet and how they are ready to run along, spreading any negative news without any form of clarity.

“Just for the record, I never met that person on the said day, still never seen that person till this day, never knew about that person’s existence not until those allegations came up.. yet she claimed I put ‘something’ in her drink.
A lot of people believed that story and you think I’ll let this libellous claim fly? Hell fucking NO!

“I took this time off because I didn’t want to act out based off of emotions, because if I did; I’ll definitely act out of character and that is not who I am.

“For weeks; I’ve been getting calls from brands I work with, colleagues, friends & family about this rubbish and you know what makes it worse? You social media commentators, internet police, even people I used to think I’m cool with.. scrambling for the tiniest bit of clout and relevance, cluelessly jumping on anything not bothered if it’s someone’s life or career on the line; it might be yours tomorrow.

“I wanna re-instate, I have never seen this person before even as I am typing this! I still haven’t set my eyes on this person.. Like what else can I say? How else can I prove this?

“There’s no need for me to ask for an apology where I won’t get any. I just needed to say this publicly and get it off my chest.. cos if it was a case of ‘cancellation’ as many people are quick to do, I for don go back to dey find work for bank.

“But as they didn’t wait to hear my side of the story before they slandered my name, I would keep the same energy and not listen to anyone’s opinion while I press full charges.. even though I’m aware she’s remanded in prison at the moment but not on my own charge.. YET!”
