No beef between Waconzy and Burna Boy

Image
Waconzy
With hit singles like Tonight and Love to Party, it is no surprise that Burna Boy’s album is highly anticipated by fans.
When his L. I. F. E album dropped recently, it was well received by fans. However, some raised eyebrows when they listened to his No No No track where he mentioned one of Nigeria’s reigning artistes, Waconzy.  Waconzy is one of the few successful artistes from Port Harcourt.
Some fans were curious to know what he said about Waconzy whose club banger, Celebrate put Port Harcourt on the Nigerian music map.
When we got in touch with Burna Boy’s camp, they said that the song was not meant to insult Waconzy in any way.
Burna Boy claimed that Waconzy has had heard the song and that they are good friends. We Burna Boy did an accapella of the song in Port Harcourt.
  Naijaentertainers.blogspot.com further learnt that the song was produced in 2011 and both singers have now relocated to Lagos alongside their colleagues, Timaya and Duncan Mighty.

How long have you been singing?

I started singing at Sunday school service in the church; my mum was the choir mistress, so singing is what has been part of my family because it has been in our vein.

Is music a career to you or what?

Music is my life, music is something I love doing, like I said earlier, I grow up in a family where music runs through us, music is my passion and it’s what I love doing, can’t stop doing music, I have to keep doing it because I love to do it and isn’t that I don’t have other things doing but basically I can’t leave music and music can’t leave me because it’s my passion and I…

Port harcourt Artistes Relocate To Lagos

Image
In recent times ,many Port Harcourt based music stars have relocated to Lagos to pursue their career. The main reason we gathered is to seek greener pastures. Over the years, Garden City based artistes have not been able to make money just like their Lagos based counterparts who are out-doing each other spending heavily acquiring houses and latest automobiles. Though this city is blessed with a large number of talented artistes,they however struggle to get big marketers to invest in their arts. Another reason why many of them don’t make money is the availability of limited paid shows. The show promoters in Port Harcourt would rather spend big cash bringing Lagos based acts to the city, than paying the local artistes. Consequently , they tend to have the local artistes on their shows for free. The absence of good record labels in the city is another factor affecting the growth of the industry. Most of artistes in the city invest their money on their projects without …

God’s Favour and Hardwork Made ‘Limpopo’ A Huge Success -Kcee Confesses

Image
Kcee
No doubt, every music artiste that storms the studio to put up vocals on beats always boasts of how the song will be accepted even before it hits the radio stations.

You get to hear phrases like ‘I just cooked a mad jam’, ‘this song will surely be a hit’, ‘just left the studio doing a mad song’ and so on, but not all eventually turn out to impress their close associates or family members, let alone the general public.

In 2002, KC Presh, which consists of two singers, emerged the debut winner of the Star Quest Music Talent Hunt Competition. Since then, they struggled to hit the mainstream, but this was not to be and they went their separate ways in 2011, when the centre could no longer hold for them as a singing duo.

But since then, only KCee has stolen the hearts of many music lovers even across Africa, but Presh has not been able to make much impact in the music industry.

After the release of ‘Okpekete’, KCee released ‘Limpopo’, which has now fetched him an endorse…

Mother of one and Nollywood actress and Mercy Johnson Okojie clocks 29 yesterday.

In the spirit of celebration, she sent out a message to her fans yesterday, thanking God for sparing her life till date and making her what she is today.

In her message, Mercy said she would have ended up a pr0stitut3 but for God who has shown her mercy.

Here is the message:

Today, I thought of many things I would love to have as birthday gifts and the many dreams I’m still pursuing.

In all of this I’m not losing sight of the fact that if not for God I might have ended up on the street like the many kids and young adults begging for food and some pr0stituting to make ends meet.

If we know the circumstances that force some of these people on the street we would spare a thought for them. I am where I am today purely by the grace of God and the grace of the people who believed in me from the word go.

Recently, I was at the Boys Reform Oregun,Lagos,the discussion I had with the principal Mr. Kotun and …

Image
Beverly Osu
Some hours ago, controversial actress, Afrocandy offered another controversial figure, Beverly Osu a movie role in her upcoming flick, which will most likely be a s0ft p0rn.
The offer by the mother of two to the recent returnee of the just concluded Big Brother Africa, The Chase game competition generated issues among fans of Beverly.

It was believed that Beverly's x-rated scenes at the show may have made Afrocandy to extend the gesture to the reported ex-girlfriend of 2Shotz as stated in Afrocandy's post on Facebook.

Speaking on a radio show yesterday (Wednesday), Beverly not only rejected Afrocandy's offer, but thanked her.

When asked if she would love to accept the offer, Beverly promptly said, 'Afrocandy nibo? No, thanks for the offer but no, I am not featuring [in her film].

Image
Ahead of the quarter-final clash tonight between D’Tigers of Nigeria and Senegal at the ongoing 2013 FIBA Afrobasket championship in Ivory Coast, Vice-captain of the team Ike Diogu has exclusively revealed to us that the team is fired up for tonight’s game.

“We are ready, the team is ready and we have played pretty well in the first 4 games in this tournament but tonight will be another challenge just like the Cameroon game but the team is in a very high spirit right now”

D’Tigers dismissed the Central Africa Republic last night 112-75 with Stanley Okoye raking in 29 points.

Diogu maintained that the tournament has been tough for his teammates especially with the number of players down with injuries.

“It’s been tough because the first 2 days of the tournament saw 2 players go down and just before the start of the championship we also had a player ruled out ineligible so it’s been tough but the guys have rallied around each other and like people saw last night, younger play…

Tonto Dikeh Admits To Bleaching Skin

Image
In a recent interview on channels, the tattoo-loving actress confirmed the rumours making the rounds that she was bleaching her skin. She says there’s nothing wrong with skin bleaching as long as it’s done well.
According to the controversial actress said, ‘I don’t have an opinion on it, I just feel we can do it the right way, it mustn’t go wrong, it can be right”.
She further explained that everyone had the choice to change their skin colour if they wished so. ‘If you do not love your skin for some reason, you can change it‘.
And when asked about the health implications, Tonto advised ‘You can do it and do it well. She said, “If you don’t love your skin you can change it without worry. I use a lot of oil on my skin; and so far it is coming out fine. So, all I am trying to do is enhance my colour though I am already light skinned. It does not really matter if you bleach your skin, as long as you do it right”.

Reasons Entertainers' Marriages Are Crashing --Basorge Tariah Jnr

Image
This succinct yet modest assertion was how the top actor-cum-comedian, Basoene Kelsey Tariah Jnr, popularly known as Basorge, captured the causes of most celebrity failed marriages.

What do you think is the cause of incessant marriage breakups?

I think most people don’t differentiate being a superstar and a spouse. Most people live their lives, in and outside as superstars, even to the closest person to them. You want everybody to see you as a superstar and your partner might not be comfortable with that.

For instance, I meet Nollywood actress, Chioma Chukwuka very often in the market. She is homely and very down to earth. She is one woman that doesn’t carry the star mentality in her head. Sadly, most artistes can’t even go to the market? They can’t even go to the supermarket to buy things for themselves and for the family, not to talk of cleaning the house.

So they end up turning the other partner to houseboy or house girl! The function and responsibility of marriage is …

Okagbare better than Eagles –Kalu

Image
Former Abia state governor Dr.Orji Uzor Kalu has  threatened to embark on a One -Man protest match to the Presidency unless medals winning Blessing Okagbare got rewarded as much as African champions Super Eagles.
Said Kalu: “I feel for Okagbare.Never in our history did anyone single handedly win all the country’s medals in a senior global competition.Okagbare achieved that in Moscow,yet nobody is planning a Presidential reception for this great athlete.”
Speaking further,the ex-governor explained that the Eagles got a good deal after their Nations Cup glory,a far cry from two World Championships medals by an individual.
“Without taking away anything from our beloved Eagles,i do not think they are World class.They never won an Olympic medal,never played in the quarter-finals of the World Cup,nor in the Semis of the Confederations Cup.
Okagbare is on higher ground,having won Olympic bronze in 2008,and now silver and gold.She is more than an African champion and should be…

INNOSON THE FIRST MADE IN NIGERIA CARS,BUSES ,TRUCKS VIDEO & PHOTOS

Image
The youngest among six children, Chief (Dr) Innocent Ifediaso Chukwuma (OFR), was born into the family of Mr & Mrs Chukwuma Mojekwu of Uru-Umudim, Nnewi, in Anambra State, without the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth.

But, what he lacked in affluent parental background, he made up for with intelligence, hard-work, discipline and business acumen – qualities that have continued to interplay remarkably in his many ventures.

In February 2007, Chukwuma embarked on what some analysts perceived then as a mission impossible, when it incorporated INNOSON Vehicle Manufacturing Company Limited (IVM), to produce sundry commercial automobiles, utility vehicles and passenger cars, in collaboration with a consortium of Chinese auto manufacturers.

With the public display of some of the vehicles at the 2nd Nnewi International Auto Trade Fair held at the Beverly Hills Hotels (Gabros Sports Complex) in the last quarter of 2009, IVM did not only silence the critics, but made a bold…
