Oyo State Government Demolishes Yinka Ayefele, House In Ibadan “Fresh Fm”

19 Aug

Lawmaker, governorship aspirant and other residents of Ibadan on Sunday lamented Sunday’s demolition of the Music House owned by popular musician, Yinka Ayefele.

The Oyo State Government demolished the multi-million naira edifice at around 4.30AM on Sunday.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the structure, located on the Challenge-Toll Gate dual carriageway in Ibadan, housed the popular Fresh FM radio station owned by the musician.

A NAN correspondent reports that hundreds of residents had thronged the scene wielding placards with various inscriptions criticising the state government over the exercise.

Some of the early callers at the scene of the demolished building were Mr. Seyi Makinde, a PDP governorship aspirant; and Dr. Wasiu Olatunbosun, the Secretary of Unity Forum, a splinter group in the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress.

Also present at the scene was Hon. Olusegun Olaleye representing Ibadan North State Constituency in the State House of Assembly.

Makinde, Olatunbosun and Olaleye, however, appealed to the irate residents at the scene of the demolished structure to remain calm, urging them not to resort to self-help.

Calls made to the Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Mr. Toye Arulogun, were unsuccessful as his two cell phone lines were switched off.

NAN recalls that the state government had marked the structure for demolition, insisting that it contravened the state ’s planning laws.

But Ayefele had approached an Oyo State High Court sitting in Ibadan seeking to stop the planned demolition.

Ayefele’s counsel, Mr. Olayinka Bolanle, in an ex parte motion filed before the court, sought for an order of the court restraining the state government from demolishing the property pending the determination of the suit.

Bolanle also stated that due process was followed in the construction of the structure while relevant approvals were obtained from the state’s departments and agencies associated with land and housing.

Justice I. Yerima ordered the claimant to ensure service of the court process on the respondent and adjourned the case till Monday for the hearing of the exparte motion.

The name Kizz Daniel Belongs To G-worldwide,Kizz Daniels in Trouble.

15 Jun

Former label of kizz Daniel has gone public to denounce the use of his new name.

The label wrote:
KIZZ DANIEL NEW NAME ALSO BELONG TO G-WORLDWIDE.

The Management of G-Worldwide Entertainment wishes to inform the general public that the matter of G-Worldwide Entertainment Ltd v Oluwatobiloba Daniel Anidugbe before the Federal High Court, Lagos Division, is still ongoing contrary to the fake news being peddled by the artiste and his advisers to mislead the public. Following several requests and enquiries by Nigerian and foreign online media and entertainment outfits about the status of the matter, it has become needful to notify the public of the current state of facts.

The suit at the Federal High Court last came up on 16th May 2018 whereupon our lawyers informed the Judge of a pending application for status quo to further restrain the rebellious acts of the artiste in view of the recent release of previously unreleased songs from the Evolution album, as well as the continued use of the name Kiss Daniel without our approval. The Judge emphatically told the Kiss’ lawyers to explore a settlement of the dispute as he does not believe the matter is one which should go to trial and that the lawyers should report on any settlement at the next adjourned date, 26th June 2018. We are unaware at the time of this release that the lawyers to Kiss have submitted any proposal with terms of settlement to our legal team.

It also interesting to inform the public that the Court was informed about the artiste’s release of the new song titled 4 Dayz, and For you a collaborated with WizKid , which are songs from the Evolution album, the ownership of which forms the subject matter of the suit at Federal High Court. We therefore need to let the public know that these releases demonstrate that the artiste is on a trip to put the credibility of other artistes whom he collaborates with in question.

We are also aware that the artiste has released the video of 4 Days, done a collaboration with Sheyi Shay titled Surrender, and another song Me ke with Omawunmi by changing his name from ‘’Kiss Daniel’’ to ‘‘Kizz Daniel’’. Let the whole world also take note that G-Worldwide is also the owner of the name ‘‘Kizz Daniel’’ (see acceptance and acknowledgement documents from the Ministry of Trade & Investment).

All digital platforms have been put on notice for take down of infringing materials where the name Kizz Daniel is in use, and we have responded to foreign and local media outfits on this issue following calls for clarification. We also wish to formally inform the public that the artiste’s use of the names Kiss Daniel and Kizz Daniel amount to breach of the company’s intellectual property rights. The company further advises the general public and other artistes to desist from engaging the artiste in respect of the names and contact the company’s management to confirm any information or proposal from the artist or his advisers which we believe are calculated to deceive.

We shall also not hesitate to take appropriate legal action to obtain judicial redress where necessary for such infringements.

Thank you.

Ikeji’s engagement to her one-time ex-boyfriend was announced earlier in March by her sisters.

Following speculations that Don Jazzy was the father of the baby, after the news of the pregnancy broke, he went on his Twitter handle @donjazzy to refute the claim.

The music producer wrote, “It wasn’t me,” apparently in response to speculations he could be the father of Linda’s unborn child.

The tweet was, however, greeted with reactions. @Lindarome20 tweeted, “Lol bro, take heart; we your loyal fans are patiently waiting for your own wedding, and right in the reception, I will throw *my dear*shaku shaku nice song don babaJ.”

@Adebayorh1 wrote, “So @DONJAZZY, on top those crushing on @lindaikeji, you weren’t the one..mr man, are you kidding me right now?”

The News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, reports that after the announcement of Ikeji’s engagement in March, Don jazzy shared a picture of himself being consoled by friends with the caption: (crying emojis) Kai Linda is engaged. It is finished.”

Before the news, Don Jazzy had made several moves and also ‘proposed’ to her (Linda) on social media and with various posts on his Instagram handle.

One of such was a recent photo of Linda with the caption: “When you re fine you re fine abeg.

Now are we sure this will not shock us all at the end? let us know on time oh Linda…

Update- Most New Generation Labels Are Owned By Yahoo Boys-“D-Banj”…

2 Mar

Ex-member of the defunct mo’hits crew and DB records boss, Dbanj has revealed how illegitimate money is being used to invest in the music business in Nigeria.

As one of the panelist at the ongoing 2018 social media week, that started on Monday. Dbanj spoke extensively on the topic, ‘Changing The Game: Artistes As Leaders’. He said most record label owners are operating blindly as they know nothing about music.

While speaking on the challenges facing Nigerian Music Industry, Dbanj said;

“MOST OF THE NEW GENERATION RECORD LABELS ARE FOUNDED BY YAHOO BOYS. YOU MUST UNDERSTAND FIRST, WHY ARE YOU COMING INTO MUSIC.

“NIGERIAN ARTISTES NEED A LOT OF CAPACITY BUILDING. IT IS ONLY IN NIGERIA THAT THE OWNER OF A RECORD LABEL DOESN’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT MUSIC.”

On branding and how he got to the music business, Dbanj said;

“Just like any product, you must always evolve. The fear of being poor made me think outside the box. This is one of the factors that drove me into music,”

Update- Watch As Mortuary Attendant, Fondles Ebony Reigns Corpse…

2 Mar

A viral video showing the bodies of the late Afropop singer, Ebony Reigns, and her friend Franca Kuri in a mortuary, has left the public horrified.

A mortuary attendant can be seen touching and examining the badly injured bodies of the two showing bruises and for Ebony a deep cut in the head.

The location of the mortuary is unknown as well as the identity of the attendant.

It appeared there were more than two persons involved in the insensitive act as another assistant was seen using a mobile device to film the incident.

“Unbelievable! Life is too short,” he said and left hold of the head. “I have taken footage of it.

If I see it on social media, I will hold you responsible because I won’t share it,” another person is heard as saying.

Moments after that, the same man was captured fondling Ebony’s bre.asts and private part, until the one taking footage asked him to take off his hands just so he could film his preferred part.

As to why they would do what they’re doing is already disturbing, but that they even took videos of the episode makes things 100 times worse.

The male attendant had earlier performed similar touch on the body of Franklina Nkansah Kuri, who together with a military officer, died alongside the musician in a tragic crash on the Sunyani-Kumasi road on February 8, 2018.

It is yet to be established if the incident happened at the Mankranso Government Hospital where the deceased bodies were initially taken after the accident.

It is also not clear if that formed part of the duties of the attendant and the fact that the act was filmed and circulated, has got social media activists publicly registering disapproval.

A very angry Ama Nyamesah Drewry, posted on Facebook demanding the immediate arrest and possible prosecution of the persons behind the unfeeling act.
