[Article] PUT SOME RESPECT ON THE PROMOTER

As much as we want
bloggers & djs (Promoters) to support upcoming artiste, there is something we want to say, sort of advice… Some upcoming artiste no dey try, in
just one month u will drop 10 to 15 songs; brother/sister you don’t have conscience at all… Why don’t you
want other acts to shine or you think dropping everyday makes u the bad guy? No! Making a hit makesbyoi the bad guy.
Only you can’t be on the blog, if it’s album you want to do, do it and rest. After all is it only u Mr. Dj
will be playing??? No wonder bloggers (promoters) have decided to high up their price just so they could reduce the number of upcoming artiste up… Why not be like
“some upcoming acts”? that know there are other upcoming artistes, so they drop one or two songs/videos every year! If most of these upcoming artiste were like this! Things won’t be like this in the industry!! Drop
a song you are satisfied with and push it… If you thought dropping songs everyday is the way to
stardom? Then wake up you are dreaming. Dropping songs all the time will only limit how far the previous goes… We don’t mean to offend u, but chill and think about this, the money you use in recording and
dropping everyday. You could use it to push ur song, tomorrow now when another Artiste pushing his song hits stardom, una go sey
na jazz. The jazz is good music, promotion & prayer. Some will spend all the money they have chasing women and clubbing, later on
you’ll go begging the promoter to help you for little or nothing..Most of these upcoming acts you see
doing it big are not as rich as u think, once you are determined ; people will feel you are wealthy and that’s why you move: little did they know u
sacrificed good clothes, girls, party, flirting and put all the money on the hustle…
Everyone needs money & the earlier you realize
and start paying promoters the better for your career! You see all this girls, when you blow
they’ll give u what u are paying for-for free…
Hahahahah and if u don’t blow, they’ll sip Bobo juice & laugh at you.
Note: The day u decide to do music, sorry not just “music”, the day you decide to do “music
business” just know that you have signed to pay everybody who is willing to promote your music.
If u think paying a promoter is
too much, we pray this changes
you. #PutSomeRespectO

[News] A guy from DMW blasts Wizkid’s fans due to O2 show.

Aloma DMW is a fan of Davido always seen around the superstar, Aloma took to his Instagram story to talk dirty saying; “Davido single handedly sold out the O2 not like Wizkid who was featured by Afrorepublic”.

Truth is Davido is yet to sell out 02 as news reaching us seems to insinuate that over 200 tickets are yet to be sold. We think this post by Aloma isn’t necessary.

[Article] Sing according to your pocket (PUT SOME RESPECT ON THE MUSIC VIDEO DIRECTOR)

Let us put some respect on the
music video director; It is no news that music videos play a vital rule in giving music its actually value, music video directors invest a lot of time and creativity in making this goal a reality. Artistes need to sing according to their pocket to make a video project quite easy for the director.

For example; Artistes records a song & says; “I drive a porche, private jets from Lagos to Malaysia, 100 girls in my house now sha” and
you call a video director to shoot a video for you. The budget is not even upto 300k… U deserve
to be flogged! Back to back… Please, sing according to what you can afford, u could sing about how hard life is, or better yet sing a gospel song! With that a director might accept
a low budget for a concept on your low profiled song, you probably might not spend much shooting a video of you singing according to your pocket..

So many upcoming artistes don’t know what it takes to shoot a good video, especially those that haven’t had the experience! Brother & sister; getting a good music video is not a child’s play thing. #PutSomeRespectOnTheDirector

[News] Why Ycee and the remaining artistes Left TINNY Entertainment. The Real Story by – “Azeez Calypse” TINNY Entertainment PR

TINNY Entertainment was undoubtedly one of the leading Record Labels in Nigeria with a handful of talented acts signed under it. The label is owned by Mr Timilehin Arokodarepopularly known as Small TINNY, the label housed amazing entertainers such as YCEE, BELLA, Dapo Tuburna, Damilare and few others.

Last Week the front liner of the label YCEE made it publicly known, via a tweet, that he is no longer signed to the music label, in response to a fan who asked if he was still with the label.

In truth, YCEE had terminated his contract with the label since September 2018, as well as, Bella, Dapo Tuburna and Damilare, who all terminated their contracts with the label, leaving TINNY Entertainment with no artiste to manage.

For over eighteen months, I was the label’s PR (and held the record of the longest served member of staff) I handled the label’s social media platforms, distribution and promotion of content; and trust me, in my almost two-year stay at the label, I lost count of how many staff members came and went.

There was an instance where the label’s CEO returned from the UK and sacked ten of his staff members, leaving only the gate man and myself. One other time, a new staff member was employed on Monday and was sacked on Friday. Let’s say, Boss TINNY, as I always referred to him was a ruthless boss with high demand for excellence and little or no regard for his staff.

It’s no surprise at all that all his artistes up and terminated their contracts with him at the same time.

The artistes’ angst with the label had started long ago and only intensified in January 2018 during the YCEE Juice Concert in London. YCEEand Bella had had issues with the label’s CEO while they were all in London; and as punishment, the management had abandoned the talents in the UK, leaving them with no means to take care of themselves or even return home. I will not go into the details of how the talents were able to survive their stay in the UK.

The issue was later resolved but not too long afterwards, trouble brewed again in the camp when the label could no longer handle the management of her four artistes concurrently.

Not a day went by without a complaint from one of the artistes demanding the status of their career and their brand direction. I remember this time when Dapo Tuburna, in indignation, sent an angry mail to the label’s CEO demanding to know the way forward as regarding his music career, while pointing out that the label was not holding up their own end of the contract; stating he funds his own distribution and promotion most of the time, despite having signed to a label as prominent as TINNY Entertainment. Damilare on the other hand, never stopped complaining about how the label did not have time for him and how the distribution and promotion of his releases were not properly funded by the label. He was signed in 2017 and had only two singles and a video to show for it.

Established artistes often have a key-man clause in their contracts, which allows them to leave for another label if both parties, the label and the artiste, come to a mutual agreement to part ways. I think, that was the case with YCEE. For upcoming artistes, dropping out may be better than being stuck in a contract with a corporation that cares more about the bottom line than having the conviction to stick with artistes, even if they do not see immediate returns.

allegedly raping a woman earlier this
month.
A 24-year-old woman claims Chris Brown
raped her on the night of the 15th & 16th

woman.
However, in her testimony, she claims that
she ended up in a single room with Chris
Brown where she claims she was
raped. She also alleges that Chris Brown’s
bodyguard and his friend also abused her.
Paris parquet has already opened a case
and began investigating into the claims that

[Article] Put Some respect on the musician (Respect Musicians)

Producers give artist sounds & get paid “cash”. Artiste promotes the producer alongside as he promotes his song. He writes producer name on the song art, when song drops online the producer’s name is been tagged, when played on radio, in clubs etc the producer’s name is been hyped along side because this days every
producer has a slogan… This producers are so so lucky! And to the blown producers; anbupcoming artiste works with u, u refuse to
help share the song on various social media platforms for reasons who knows?? U forget that the upcoming artiste is helping u to trend
as he is promoting the single, remember “No Man is at the top forever” someone else gon take that spot someday… May God help u. We
don’t mean to offend no one!
Please, I’m begging u, put some respect on these Artistes (Made & up/coming) they deserve it!!
They don’t even get paid for promoting ur name Mr. Producer…. And to All promoters that extort from artistes, stop it!! It is not bad to charge for your service but make your charges affordable & support the industry as the growth of these artistes is our growth.
Djs; dont forget if there is no song for you to play U’ll stay at home jobless! We don’t mean to offend no one. Musicians put in so much work, support them.

They are so many things to say
about this, but we will stop! and say

[Article] Fela dropped the weed and MIC, Wizkid & BurnaBoy picked the weed, Falz picked the MIC.

Our very own StarBoy Wizkid is known for mimicking Legendary Fela with his style of afrobeat, that’s not all… Wizkid is known for smoking lots of weed as it is shown in most of his pictures & videos. Fela was part of the weed gang & as it seems Wizkid picked that attitudes from the legend.

Burnaboy is another artiste that does the Fela thing in his music, BurnaBoy doesn’t just sing like the legend. He also smokes like the Legend.

Falz is one artiste that speaks against immorality as his recent album “Moral Instruction” is more of an infusion of the Fela sound, Falz has morally spoken about the wrongs going on in the country without showing off weed… Falz picked the MIC from the legend & is doing good without the weed.

Is this article True or False???
