Days after Zaaki Azzay threatened to sue Mr Eazi and Sarkodie over an alleged rip-off of his 1996 song ‘ Marry me’ in their new song ‘ Na You’, the veteran singer has served an update on the copyright infringement notice.
Speaking to Sunday Scoop, Zaaki said Mr Eazi reached out to him after putting up the notice on Instagram. He said the “Leg Over” crooner apologized and also promised to give him his due benefits.
He said, “Mr Eazi called me yesterday night (Wednesday) and we spoke from about 1 am till 3 am. I must say that I was impressed with his level of humility and honesty because he spoke well. Firstly, he apologised and said the song is not his and he expected that Sarkodie would have done the right thing by reaching out to me before releasing the song. He was surprised that Sarkodie did not do that. He then apologised and gave me his word that he would acknowledge me on the song and also give me my due benefits. As a result of our discussion, all legal actions are on hold.”
“In Africa, we are growing. If it were before, we probably wouldn’t see it as a big deal. But now, everybody has seen that music is a big business and nobody is ready to play with his intellectual property anymore. With the way I reacted and how people responded, it shows that people are watching and are aware of what is going on” he added.
Davido says there is no amount of money Osun state can make in 30-40 years that his billionaire father, Adedeji Adeleke, hasn’t made.
The 27-year-old singer who is gearing up for his wedding to his lover Chioma, said this in an interview with MTV Base TV host, Ehiz, yesterday September 4th. He explained why he was away from Nigeria for many months after his Uncle, Ademola Adeleke lost in the Osun state governorship election.
With the whole politics thing it was first about family. Honestly, it was first about family. I was in Osun with my guys. We saw everything in plain sight. Let me tell you a story about my uncle. My uncle is the last born of the family. The original politician of the family is Serubawon, my father’s elder brother.
“He was the first governor of Osun state; came back then went for senator you know when everybody for the state knows that this is the next governor and then we just woke up one day and they said he went to eat somewhere and he died.
“Yoruba culture when somebody holds an office and he passes on they either give the bride or the close relatives. The next in line is B red’s daddy and he is just a happy person. He doesn’t like politics but when you lose your brother everybody knows what’s up. With that, they wanted to give my uncle automatically.
“A day to them swearing him in as senator, they said no we want to do re-election, another guy has come up and my father doesn’t like wahala so he said let’s go to the other party if we lose we pack our thing and go. The next day we did election my uncle cleared 16 out of 17 local government areas.
“He became a senator in just a week. His own journey to winning that governorship primary election was out of sight that was how we knew this one nah God.
“It was painful and will tell everybody here that was the real reason I was not even in the country because of the politics. I have to watch what I say. If I was around he no go dey OK for me and my people. So I had to be a man and say look let me stay away.
“We have Adeleke University all the roads that lead was done by my father. There’s no money Osun wants to make in the next 30 to 40 years that my father has not made.

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.

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? ?”
