Nigerian singer, Danny Young has taken to social media to claim that he blew before Wizkid after a UK-based OAP Adesope stated that Wizkid paved the way for other Nigerian young artistes like Davido, Burna Boy and so on.
Danny Young blamed the OAP for trying to re-write history.
We made this song in 2006, it was one of d biggest songs in Africa. I was just 16. The youngest kid Artiste/Producer at Dat time.
Parents flogged music talents off their kids, but it changed afterwards. There was no social media so we had to travel everywhere we wanted our songs to be aired.
Channel O was the biggest international cable station and this song remained on No1 spot on the chat for several weeks.
Then, Radio wouldn’t play u if u aren’t exceptionally good as they played more of western Artistes. But we reached out despite the limitations. We did almost the best dat was available at dat time. Every kid wanted to be like me.
Even the person in question wouldn’t say I didn’t inspire him. Besides 2face (African queen) , Dbanj (Oliva twist) and Ice prince (oleku) further established our music internationally. Thank God for wizkid and Davido as they have further broken bounds by building on these platforms and we are proud of them.. It will not end there as it is like a process.
There are others coming that will do greater things too, but it is important that we don’t forget by tomorrow what these guys (Wizkid,Davido,Olamide etc) are doing today.
It’s like saying Phyno is the originator of Igbo Raps, where will u place Nigga Raw, or Saying Olamide started Yoruba raps when we had lord of Ajasa. let’s always dish out the correct information when it comes to history of the Nigerian music industry.
Nollywood Actress, Yvonne Jegede has shared first photos of her son weeks after reports that her marriage to rapper Abounce crashed.
Yvonne Jegede has also been fueling the report of the marriage crash with the kind of posta she makes on social media. Recently, she posted that it’s best for a strong woman to walk away instead of fixing it.
A strong woman will automatically stop trying if she feels unwanted. She won’t fix it or beg, she will just walk away.
After being called out on social media, Davido apologises for body shaming a lady who attacked him overr his political views and affiliation.
Barrister Temi (T.lolo) has rejected the apology Davido tendered after realizing he was wrong.
Davido, in a lengthy post on his social media explained that Temi and her man knows him personally and could have easily reached out to him privately but she opted for calling him out online and that hurt him uncontrollably.
However, T.Lolo has taken to her Instastory to reveal that cannot accept the singer’s apology.
She said he shouldn’t have said all that he did about her body, just because he didn’t know how to respond to what she said.
She added that Davido is lying as she does not know him and they are not friends and there was no way she could reach him via DM or any closer means.
She further stated that Davido went all out to attack her, so he should own it and not flip the script.
