With the new trend of getting noticed at all cost, many Nigerian entertainers have stepped up their game in the show off business. They have seized every micro and macro opportunities to flaunt their expensive and luxurious lifestyles. Instagram is now the new studios and movie locations. We find more celebrity activities on instagram than the real life situation. Many have shown their cars, wrist watches and many other material acquisitions. Now let’s move away from the show off to the lies that we were told by entertainers this year.
KCEE FEATURING NICKI MINAJ
In January, Limpopo master Kcee announced to the world that he had sealed a deal worth about N25m to feature American star Nicki Minaj. Kcee who attended the Grammy Awards with label mate Mr Songs sent the entertainment world into frenzy when he made that known.
“We are in the USA trying to get some collaboration done. It is true we are in the process of doing a song with Nicki Minaj, and that news was leaked by an agent to the media. We actually wanted it to be a surprise for the fans, but since it’s out there now; we plan on taking it bigger”
“We want to seal another artist from YMCMB that is bigger than Nicki Minaj. She’s already sealed to be on the track, but now that everyone knows, we’re still going to surprise the fans by getting another person from YMCB.”
Nigerians and fans of Kcee are yet to get even a snippet of that song, well Diaris God.
WIZKID WROTE A SONG FOR RIHANNA
Starboy CEO and one of Nigeria’s most celebrated young stars Wizkid dropped the bombshell in an interview when he said he wrote a song for American superstar Rihanna. Wizkid who in reality associates with top American stars like Chris Brown has had a great career so far and even released a new album ‘Ayo’. We are waiting to hear Riri speak Yoruba and pidgin in her next song.
Yea, I went to the studio to write something for her, she was in the studio as well, big shout out to Rihanna, so we made something together hopefully it gets picked. We’ll still do more stuffs together, you know she’s a cool person, I’m going back to Los Angeles so definitely I’m going to get back in the studio with her again.”
P-SQUARE TO RELEASE ALINGO CARTOON SERIES
Africa’s foremost twin celebs P-square raised the hope of their fans early this year when Peter announced the soon to be released animated series ‘The Alingos’. We are yet to see the cartoons even though they have blamed the failure of the project on their disagreement at a time.
“To herald the launch of The Alingos, the brothers are releasing a teaser – an animated music video for their hit single ‘Unlimited’. It is the first high quality animated video in Nigeria and by extension the whole of Africa. This animated music video is 100% Nigerian; no foreign inputs and is created in High Definition with superior picture and sound quality, as expected from the duo. The production quality compares to anywhere in the world.
The public and fans of P-Square will get to watch the ‘Unlimited’ animated video as well as The Alingos (when it hits the screens) by first downloading the P-Square app (P2) due for release next week.”
9ICE QUITS MUSIC FOR POLITICS
9ice has never hidden his political ambition. The Gongo aso hit singer who is gunning for a house of Reps slot said he was done with music and was making a full plunge into politics this year. 9ice has stepped up his campaign and awareness programs but shockingly, when his fans thought he was done, he released a new single recently.
“I’m leaving music, I need to go into something more challenging”
“Music is no longer competitive for me, I’ve done all that needs to be done in music”
MR SONGS SAYS HIS PARENTS ARE RELATED
Five star artist Mr Songs popularly known as Harrysongs drew so much attention in an interview when he said his parents were related, a statement he later denied.
“It’s just that after my dad and my mum gave birth to me, they separated and went their different ways. So, my father got married to another woman and also my mother to another man. They separated because I was given birth to by two relations. My father and mother are actually brother and sister. They gave birth to me before they could realize that.Well, I learnt that when my mother was alive, she met my father. Then she was still in school and they were in the same class and the same village. But she didn’t know that they are closely related. So, I was born based on what our villagers regarded as abomination and therefore they had to separate. Because it was a big abomination, so they had to separate. Even, they attempted to kill my father in that village, but he fled, because in Warri where I come from, it is a taboo. They termed it incest.”
