Kcee has pushed the blame of celebrities living fake lives as witnessed in the Nigerian entertainment industry on the fans.
Alleging that most celebrities lead fake lives, the Five Star Music boss stated that people don’t like it when one is real. He further disclosed that this pressure pushes many into faking it till they make it.
“90 per cent of celebrities lead fake lives because you guys (the public) are putting them under pressure. People don’t like it when you are real; they prefer it when you lie to them, and that’s why many fake it until they make it.
“If you are very honest and truthful with them (fans), your records will have slow sales. 80 per cent of celebrities rent apartments but they would claim they bought the houses. They go through that because fans put them under so much pressure. That you see someone on television does not mean the person is worth N1bn, so people should stop thinking that we’re living in heaven on earth” he told Saturday Beats.
Kcee also admitted faking it at some point in his 19-year music career. He however stated that he now talks about it because he has moved past that stage and is now successful.
“Yes, I have faked it at some point. When I started, I had to fake it. To be a celebrity, there is a perception you need to sell so that people can look up to you. I am saying this because I have gone through that and I have passed that stage. I am now successful. There was a time I was driving a Hummer jeep while my then partner, Presh, had his own. We would go to clubs and use all our money to pop champagnes. At the end of the day, we would throw the drinks away and go back home to eat noodles. We wanted to impress people and make them see us as the most expensive artistes.
“When I was in Ajegunle (Lagos) and I got to a level where I needed to leave that area, I used to tell people that I was living in Ikeja, though I was still staying at Ajegunle. Before you knew it, we started living in Ikeja and from there, we moved on to bigger things. There is faith life and also fake life. My own journey was always keying into that faith.
However, it got to a point that everything went to zero level, and when I had the second chance with Limpopo, my ideology changed. What came in then was maturity, and I made a lot of investments. I was able to buy things that even when I leave the earth, my children would inherit them”
One of the highlight of yesterday was Swae Lee’s ‘Won’t be late’ hit which Drake got featured in being released.
Asides the surprise of Nigerian superstar singer Tekno producing the song, Drake stunningly ‘went foreign’ with ‘Ikebe and Bakassi’. Part of the Canadian rapper’s verse on the hit song was ‘Ikebe, pressing on me heavy, Pressing up against me real close. Bakasi, moving on me’.
Drake went on to reveal how he got to know about the Nigerian slangs for a*s after the song became some fans’ favourite, in an exchange with a Nigerian Instagram user. The rapper said he made some research on his own even though Tekno brought life to it by changing the riddim.
Here is a screenshot of the exchange with Nigerian fan.

The National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) have revealed they would sanction Tekno and make sure he is used as a “scape-goat” in order to teach his colleagues some real lessons.
This declaration by NCAC comes after Tekno released the video to his new song “ Agege” featuring Zlatan Ibile in which the video shoot already caused a controversy in the last week after some Nigerians saw a sight of the singer, parading some girls dancing half-naked in a moving truck at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos.
The Director-General of the agency, Segun Rusenwe made this assertion after tekno went ahead to release the video while there are still on-going investigations regarding the indecency paraded at the video shoot and revealed also that Tekno’s action is a threat to National Security.
He said; “ No single person is bigger than Nigeria. We are going to use him as a scapegoat to send a strong signal that this government does not tolerate nonsense and immorality, but discipline, which is our moral principle “NCAC is committed to exposing proponents of such kinds of offensive sights and videos in Nigeria
“Since the offensive Tekno scam video came to limelight, I have received hundreds of telephone calls and SMS from Nigerians at home and others in the United Kingdom, U.S, Canada and other parts of the world.
“They are querying why such anomaly could be tolerated in Nigeria.
“Now that he has released the shameful video when investigation is still ongoing, we are going to inform security agencies to place him on their watch list.
“Because his action is a threat to national security and bad influence on Nigerian youths.
“We warn that nudity is not part of our culture and should not be tolerated.
“The Federal Government will henceforth fish out such clubs for nude dancers across the country for their promoters to face prosecution.”
Rusenwe also revealed Tekno’s act is condemnable under the law of the federation and is liable to go to jail.
“Section136, however, states that any person, who committed any act of gross indecency with another person in public, committed an offence and is liable upon conviction to three years

Tekno has issued a statement, apologising to the public over a viral video of some half-naked girls dancing inside a truck that
was stuck in traffic at the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos.
Tekno just few hours ago took to his
Instagram page to release the statement, apologising to Lagosians that witnessed the scene as well as give reasons why it happened.
He wrote; “Hi everyone, please i woul like to clear the air about the video going round of girls dancing around Lekki or Victoria Island. “First of, there was no reason for us to be dancing in a truck around Lekki. There was no music, no ventilation in the truck. We were shooting a music video and we had shortage of vehicles to convey people to the next location, because some of the cars broke in between the shoot, which we divided ourselves into various vehicles
because we had been shooting all day and having fun which we then move to the next
“However, this was at about 12am at
midnight already. This was no advert for a strip club or dancing naked for on the streets for any type of reason.
“In addition, we respect the decency in Lagos and in as much as we are
entertainers, we are always mindful of what
we have and not jeopardise it. And that’s
why we enjoy shooting our videos in Lagos.
As we all know it’s a centre of excellence
and centre of entertainment.
“We sincerely apologize if some people saw
this and felt offended by the scenenry they
saw. It was never an intent. My people i love you all, stay blessed.”
Tekno has just thrown the internet into some serious pathetic shock after an interview with popular radio personality,
The singer who has lost form musically,
revealed a lot about his bad medical
condition and how he spent so much on getting remedy to his ill-health till he got broke.
He also talked about how he got frustrated till he had to start visiting native doctors as he was so desperate to be well.
Tekno also talked about how he was so confused about going for a show in
Cameroon or going for his surgery. He
revealed the reason for the confusion was because he was already reaching
bankruptcy and getting frustrated regarding the terrible condition of his health.
Read some of the things he said, “ By this time, I’ve seen like four doctors. I was getting tired, praying, some people go say
na Ubi because is expiring in December, so
like e no wan make I sing again after the contract… someone said it’s a girl, offered me Babalawo… at this time I was already losing my mind it was insane.
“I’ve drank all the medication, they’ve even given me reflux medication that they said I have to drink for two months or at least
three months for the acid in your stomach
to start to go down because all these time
the acid from my stomach was coming up
to my throat and irritating my vocal cords.
so I got tired eventually, went to London, stayed a bit and then I came back to Nigeria…. this is already four months of no
work, no recording, no performance, just spending money from hospital to hospital,
doctor to doctor … somebody even tell me say make I buy goat and cutlass(laughs).
“So I called my mom and said, look, this is what someone told me. My mom started to
cry, I don’t know, maybe she thought I was going to do it. … At this time when I was
talking to my mom on the phone, it was
extremely hard to talk… I kept studying.
Through all these time i’ve been doing vocal
therapy, speaking to different voice coaches
online, just trying to see if there’s a way I
can learn to sing from the inside because
they said that if you can sing from your
bellies… you’ll be able to perform, so I was
just trying anything I could do.
“I was studying and at some point I just
thought, maybe I should get some surgeries
done. In my head, I just felt this is the only
option because I’ve been drinking this reflux
medicine for so long and the acid keeps
boiling my throat. Mind you for the past four
to five months I’ve been sleeping with my
bed laid down like this (he demonstrated
with his hands on what seem to be like a
slant position) with my body up and my
waist down straight. so when I sleep, the
acid doesn’t come up. But since I sleep
crazy, I start my sleep with the
recommended position and wake up with all
parts of my body in a different dimension.
“ I had a show in Cameroon three weeks
after that surgery. so it was after I go and
perform in Cameroon first or I do the
surgery first… why this Cameroon came up
was because, at this time, there was no
money again, at this time I already blew
through everything so I needed that
Cameroon show because that show was
paying me a hundred and ten thousand
dollars for that weekend. so it’s either I do
that surgery, or go and do the Cameroon
show, but I was scared because If I do
Cameroon and perform with an already
irritated voice just because I need money to
balance my bills, I would end up going back
to where I started. So I did the surgery first
and I had three weeks to get fine before I
had to go perform in Cameroon but the
doctor had told me that I needed at least
two months before I can go back on stage
because of the kind of surgery that was
“By this time, I didn’t even know how bad it
is. They cut me in five different places. The
surgery was done by a robot… after the
surgery, I woke up and looked at myself… it
wasn’t a good feeling at all. I couldn’t move,
I couldn’t sneeze, I couldn’t laugh, I couldn’t
breathe, I couldn’t do nothing at all… at this
time now, there’s metal inside of me…”
Watch interview below:
Nigerian singer, Tekno who has been off the scene for a while has just granted a ‘tell all’
interview with Daddy Freeze where he revealed in details the struggles he went through when his vocal cords shut down for months.
Narrating his ordeal, Tekno said he spent months and millions of naira on hospital bills. He also revealed he was operated on by a robot and how he now carries a magnetic device in his system.
Read excerpts of the interview below…
I went under the radar for a bit
because I was sick and It all started
at an event in Ghana, I performed
with Wizkid and Davido but
somehow I cracked my voice on
stage that night. So when I got back
to the hotel, I told my guys I didn’t
want to go out again because I
really injured my voice and just
wanted to rest.
The next day, I had a show In Togo,
I performed, still stressed the voice
and came back to Lagos but it
wasnt getting better, so I went to
see a doctor, he put a camera down
my throat but he didn’t really see
anything so he just gave me anti
biotics and said i should be fine in
a week or two but I didn’t get better
and by this time I had started
So I decided to fly to London, saw
the first doctor and he said ‘your
vocal cord is just irritated’ he gave
me drugs and said I should be fine
in about two weeks, but nothing
So I decided to fly to Los Angeles
and again I saw the first doctor , he
said the same thing. At this stage I
was loosing my mind already
because it didn’t make sense
anymore, I couldn’t sing, I couldn’t
talk, sometime they tell me to stay
quiet for a week (laughs).
Some people around me started
saying it may be from Ubi Franklin
because my contract was going to
expire in a few minths and he didn’t
want me to sing again, some others
said It could be Iyanya, someone
else said It could be a girl, another
person offered to take me to see
babalawo, I was really getting
frustrated. Someone even told me
to buy a goat and three matchetes
This all happened over a period of
like four months, no work, no
recording, no performing, I was just
spending money from hospital to
hospital. Then I started doing vocal
therapy and it got to a point i just
thought doing a surgery was the
I eventually flew to New York to see
another doctor who promised me i’ll
be fine and sing again. At this
point, I had spent alot of money and
done all sorts of weird and
disgusting tests and scans.
The surgery option i opted for was
the one that had to do with them
putting a magnet inside my throat.
The surgery was done by a robot,
they cut me in five fdifferent places.
After the surgery, I couldn’t move, i
couldn’t breath, couldn’t sneeze. It
Those hounding Don Jazzy to get married seem to have gotten the memo that he can’t be forced into marriage and they’ve backed off for a bit. But they’ve found another thing to pressure him about.
Earlier today, the record producer said absolutely no one can force him to get married (read here ). He has now taken to Twitter to reveal that while he was on the plane today, no single person mentioned marriage to him, instead they replaced it with questions about his weight.
He tweeted: ”On the plane now. Today was weird. For the first time everybody that met me didn’t ask me when I’m getting married.
They replaced it with ? ahh why so fat? ?”
Tiwa Savage broke the internet with her savage replies to twitter trolls and it was quite entertaining.
Over the weekend, Nigerians and Kenyans had a war on Twitter and some fans used the opportunity to bring up the Tiwa Savage
Versus Victoria Kimani drama.
Tiwa Savage upon seeing this decided to preach love and peace by tweeting a picture of herself holding the Kenyan flag
and a twitter user ridiculed her by stating that Nigerians have handed her over to Kenyans.
A seemingly innocent reply by Davido to a complimentary tweet has set Nigerian Twitter on fire.
A fan Tweeted at the singer this morning saying, ‘Davido Working with Lyta brings Orgasm to my eyes. Davido has been helping young talent since 1846 There’s
nobody around Davido that’s not successful I repeat Nobody, even his gateman is richer than me’.
In response to this tweet, Davido said, ‘ my gateman litt! 2 cribs 3 whips’.
Davido has had his lead over other
Nigerian entertainers extended as he
becomes the most followed Nigerian
celebrity on Twitter as he reaches 5 million followers.
The singer who is the most followed
celebrity on all social media platforms has now extended his lead at the summit of the list of most followed Nigerian celebrities on
Twitter with the new 5 million followers.
The closest person to him is his arch-rival; Wizkid who has 4.6 million followers on the social media platform.
Davido was only second to Wizkid some months back but due to his social media presence and worldwide popularity which came as a result of performing on numerous international festivals in the
course of the year, the DMW boss has been able to go atop of the list.
Mavin records new act, Rema in a tweet this afternoon revealed how Kcee motivated
him with a backstage photo 3-years ago in Benin City.
According to the rising popstar, the gesture went a long way to motivate him to be great.
Peruzzi recounted how hard it was for him to believe that his distant cousin Chioma was dating Davido, as he talked about how his relationship with the DMW boss began.
According to the Peruzzi, he first got news of Chioma dating Davido after his mother’s burial which was also when he noticed that Davido was always supporting his songs and brand on his social media platform.
He said, “After my mother’s burial; I
was going home and someone sent
me a message on Twitter,
commending my song. The person
asked if I remembered her. After
she explained who she was, I
remembered her. She told me
Davido sent my song to her. I didn’t
believe it. She further told me that
they were dating and she is like my
distant cousin, so I didn’t even see
“I felt like how can she be dating
Davido and I wouldn’t know since.
She was able to convince me after
she sent me some pictures; she told
me he was going to be around the
next day. She invited me to his
welcome party and I went there
around 2 am at Club 57.
“Once Davido entered with his
entourage, I was scared. He was
facing me, but I didn’t know what to
do. I moved to see him carefully.
He looked at me and called my
name. I was happy and I held him.
He told me he loved my songs and
that I should come to his house.
That was the best night of my life. I
sent Chioma a text; that I was with
“I couldn’t sleep that night because
I was too excited. She (Chioma) is
my mother’s cousin’s daughter. But
she is my cousin; that is how we
refer to each other. I don’t have a
proper contract with Davido; he is
my guy so I am not worried about
that. Some people have lived with
him for years without any contract.”
On how he felt after he was insulted for wearing Davido’s clothes, Peruzzi Said;
“How would you see something you
like and you can’t tell your male
friend that you like it? I told him I
liked an outfit and he gave it to me.
I have come to realise that no
matter what I do, people would talk.
I don’t let it get to me.”
He also talked about selling his car to buy some drugs for his ailing mother before she died, and completing his degree in medicine and surgery;
“When we realised my mother was
diagnosed with cancer; I had to put
my car on auction immediately. I
wanted to quickly send money to
people to help me get the drugs she
needed. I could only get the drugs
from India but they still didn’t work.
I still see myself going back to
complete my degree in medicine
and surgery but I don’t see myself
sitting in the hospital.”
Wizkid’s manager; Jada Pollock has the denied the news that she accused Wizkid of domestic violence against her.
Jada P as she is popularly called has
denied any authenticity in the report as she says her Instagram account was hacked by some unknown persons who made the accusation illegally on her behalf.
Jada took to her Instagram story some
minutes ago to release a statement
debunking any truth in the news and also to apologise for the damage the news could have caused.
She wrote; “My phone was hacked in the late hours of Monday evening and my Instagram account was compromised. I can
guarantee that the statement written was not by my hand. I can only apologise for any confusion this must have caused. i have now recovered my account.”
You all would recall the internet was in some serious dilemma when a screen-shot statement was released via Jada P’s Instagram page in which it contained news that she was being constantly beaten by Wizkid in their relationship.

He also added that whenever Jayden sings, he reminds him of Lilian. Read the letter
Shatta Wale took a dig at Sarkodie, after the Sarkcess Music Records Boss
congratulated him on being the only
Ghanaian artiste to work with Beyonce on the Lion King Album.
We reported earlier that the album will be released on the 18th of July and from the
tracklist released already, Shatta Wale will be on a song with Beyonce titled “Already”.
Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino,
Burna Boy, Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Yemi
Alade and Tekno are also on the album.
Shortly after the report went viral, Sarkodie
Welcome home Queen @Beyonce
officially Big shouts
@shattawalegh !!! And all our
brothers and sisters on there … Big
One for the culture
But reacting to the congratulatory message from Sarkodie, Shatta Wale called him a hypocrite in an interview with Zylofon FM.
He claimed that the the “tweet was not from Sarkodie’s heart”, as he has always been acting like a boss to him which he hates.
“Sarkodie has become too known.
He was recently on Hitz FM and he
was trying to pose big to me. I don’t
pose big to people. Music is not
about your dress and it’s not about
how you speak.
“I don’t want hypocrites around me.
Sarkodie has always been a
hypocrite. I didn’t wish him on his
birthday. He think he can tweet
about my collabo and make people
say he’s a matured person. I won’t
retweet his tweet. He can say that
message but I know deep down
within him it wasn’t a real tweet.”
The two Ghanaian artistes beef has been on for a while. It was reignited in 2018,
after Shatta Wale accused Sarkodie of
failing to appear for the video shoot of a song they did together.
He rebuked Ghanaian artists for not being supportive of each other, and was quite angry that Sarkodie was shooting a video with a Nigerian artiste.
Wizkid’s 3rd baby mama who also doubles as his manager, Jada Pollock, has accused Wizkid of violently abusing her for years
since they have been together.
The American citizen who is the mother of Zion, Wizkid’s 3rd child, took to her Instagram story to make the revelation. She
revealed Wizkid constantly beats her and makes her feel like they are at war when they are together in the house.
“ “From today I and Ayo no longer work together. I’ve been in an abusive
relationship with him for years covering for him time and time again. And I’m tired. Wiz
continuously puts his hand on me, leaves me with bruises that I cover up from the world including my family and friends.
“It often feels like we are war in the same house. I have done all I can do to keep this all together but from today I let go. You can
support someone as much as you can but at some point, you have to value yourself. I can’t raise my son in this kind of environment.”
Earlier today, Beyonce unveiled the tracklist of her new album, The Lion King: The Gift, which is the musical accompaniment to the
new Disney movie.
The album features six Nigerian popstars including include Yemi Alade, Burna Boy,
Mr. Eazi, Tekno, Wizkid, Tiwa Savage.
