He said “Not really on purpose, I just felt that I don’t want my relationship out there in the public; it’s my private life and I just want to keep it private. Like my mum usually say, what is best kept last longer.”  When you take music away from Jaywon, he is something.
He said “Oluwajuwonlo is an easy going personality, friendly and very accommodating; I see myself as the boy next door as music is my life. I am the every other guy on the street but the only difference now is that I am popular because of my chosen career. I am also that person that when angry and you think I will be muddy, with music, I am back to life and won’t remember anything that happened between us. In essence, music gives me life and that’s why it’s hard for me to quit.”
He says wha…

Young Girls Seduce Producers, Directors to get Movie Roles-Actress Cynthia Shalom

Image
 Nollywood actress, Cynthia Shalom has debunked the claim that sex is the easiest way for a lady to climb higher in the movie industry.
She revealed that the general notion that producers ask girls for sex as criteria to give them roles is false. She claimed that the reverse has been the case that it is young girls who flirt themselves and try to seduce producers or directors in order to be given roles.
She advised that the focus should be on young girls who take things negatively especially when they are being rejected for a role.
She urged them to desist from looking for other means to make producers as well as directors give them the job.
In her words,” When a director tells you “no, I cannot cast you for this job”, do not take that negatively. Do not look for other means to make him give you the job. Instead take it as an opportunity to work more on yourself. Look for the reason you were rejected and work on it.’
