Award winning songwriter, vocalist, singer and performer, P-son who has had a successful year with his classic record,  "Michael Faraday" returns with another explosive potential single labeled  "No Lie".

It is not just the wealth of his musical styles or his smooth and expressive voice that have made P-son such a superstar, the MIKC star overtime has proven to be distinctive in the music line.

The unique single, "No Lie" which came with a breathtaking listening/birthday party, will stand the test of time on the turntables because P-son deeply did justice to it. Produced by ace producer, Stev Jazz, Mix and Mastered by HK Beatz. Enjoy!



CREATIVITY, REALITY, ENTERTAINMENT, ARTS and MUSIC popular known as The MTN C.R.E.A.M Platform spearheaded by veteran musicians, D'banj and Ice Prince has recorded tremendous achievements.

The platform which has been helping young and talented people to actualize their music dreams irrespective of their locations across Nigeria has taken a bold step to consolidate the platform.

Earlier today, Kaduna-born singer and winner of The C.R.E.M.E platform, Leke Benson stepped out with D'banj, Ice Prince and some other winners paid a courtesy visit to the House of Representatives to present the platform to the members.

They also advocated for upward revenue share in favour of Nigerian artistes. This is a great step for Nigerian artistes.

Davido won't just stop to drop songs in 2017 even though the year is gradually sealing off. His most recent single, "FIA" is still fresh on the turntables across the world.

Today, at lunch time, Davido took to his official instagram to tease yet another new song which he promised to release this Friday.

He wrote: "25 2MORO !! New Music Friday!!!"

Tony Pulis has been sacked as West Brom manager with the club a point above the Premier League relegation zone and without a win in 10 top-flight games.

The Baggies lost 4-0 at home by Chelsea on Saturday.
West Brom won their first three games of the campaign, but have not won since 22 August, when they beat League Two Accrington 3-1 in the Carabao Cup.

Since then, they have drawn four and lost seven, and Pulis had said he would not be surprised if he was dismissed.
West Brom travel to face Tottenham in the league at Wembley on Saturday.

Pulis, who has also managed Stoke City and Crystal Palace in the Premier League, was named Baggies boss in January 2015.

They were 17th in the table when he took charge but finished that campaign in 13th, falling a place the following season before ending the next in 10th.

However, they have struggled since March, taking just 12 points from their past 21 fixtures, winning one home league game in eight months and scoring only nine goals in 12 Premier League matches this season.
He is the fifth manager to be sacked by an English top-flight club since August.

One of the Okoye twins as well as a member of the defunct Psquare duo, Paul Okoye with his solo name, Rude Boy aka King Rudy has just announced that he would be launching his own YouTube and Vevo channels for his fans soon.

Rude Boy who just released his very first single, "Fire Fire" since the dissolution of Psquare is ready to move on as a solo singer.

We are pretty sure that his fans cannot wait to subscribe to his video streaming platforms.

Just in case you didn't follow all the proceedings of the 2017 American Music Awards (AMAs), there is no cause for alarm.

Starboy Wizkid may have missed the traditional wedding of his boss for life, Banky W who got married to his fiancée, Adesua Etomi today, but his mind and thoughts are with them.

He took to instagram to apologized to him and promised to rock the white wedding with him after he could not make it to the traditional wedding.

Wizkid wrote: "My big brother and boss for life! Love u bro ❤️ see u in cape town! God bless your day! Lord knows how sad i am missing this special day☹️ We go rock church wedding ..Love forever!"

Few months ago, Kaduna state Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai made plans to borrow money from World Bank, but two Senators were said to have refused to sign the form to guarantee the governor in getting the loan.

Channels TV few hours ago reported that the loan has been approved for Kaduna State Government by the World Bank.

This is a good news for the people of Kaduna state and we hope that this will go a long way in boosting the economy of the state.

The 2017 Kaduna Entertainment Awards which was held on Friday night at the Afrinet Bluebreeze Centre in Kaduna can never be forgotten even in a hurry. It was  the fourth edition of the annual award which is aimed at celebrating entertainers and change makers in and out of Kaduna state with the backing of the state government and other prominent personalities.

E-Man and Hanny were the hosts of the night and they did pretty well by  commanding proceedings.

Chocolate City singer, Ruby Gyang who was nominated in the category of "Arewa Artiste of The Year 2017" beat everyone to cop the award. However, Chocolate City took to instagram to congratulate her on winning the award with a beautiful photo art.

Congratulations to her! Arewa loves your art and music!! Keep it up!!!

NewsmakersNG reported that a US-based Nigerian businessman was dazed in Lagos, when land agents led him to the lagoon after the part-payment for 150 plots offered for N787.5 million.

Kennedy Chukwuemeka Nwabuoku told detectives led by DCP Abutu Yaro, at the Force Criminal Investigations and Intelligence Department (FCIID), Alagbon, how he had paid N577, 590, 792 in installments among other charges, plus another N18million for bush clearing in February, and how the agents were sending him pictures and videos of caterpillars in action at the purported site at Ifedele Agunbiade Village, Sangotedo, in Eti-Osa area of Lagos.

Nwabuoku told the police that he bought the unseen land with a foreign partner and had paid in fiduciary trust, sending monies on different occasions through his company, KenBouk Global Investment Ltd.
Identified as Emeka Okoronkwo and Michael Owolabi Alonge, the agents, according to Nwabuoku, had offered the land for sale at N5, 250, 000 per plot with Certificate of Occupancy (C of O).

NewsmakersNG learnt that members of Nwabuoku's family in Nigeria who wanted to see the site were told that the land was in an area bought by prominent Nigerians like former President Olusegun Obasanjo and Oba Riliwanu Akiolu, and it was cordoned off so that ordinary citizens could not gain access.

When he became suspicious, Nwabuoku sent the C of O to a friend to verify, and the friend found that no such land or location described in the document existed.

He decided to visit Nigeria and inspect the land for which he had paid the property agent, Okoronkwo, who was identified as owner of Kings Court Realtors at Plot 321A, Akin Ogunlewe Street, Victoria Island.

When he was quizzed by the police on November 8, 2017, Okoronkwo allegedly admitted that he collected N603, 000, 000 for 100 plots, agency fees and legal fees through transfers to Kings Court Realtors' accounts in two banks.

Detectives found that Nwabuoku transferred the monies in the following order over a period: N229, 000, 000, N86, 000, 000, N120, 000, 000, N41, 300, 000, N11, 291, 000, and N90, 000, 000.

They also found that the C of O given to Nwabuoku is a fake one, and that Alonge who introduced him to Okoronkwo "masterminded the fraud".

Which do you prefer?
I just got back to Nigeria recently, after the better part of 4 months away. Naturally, one of the things I missed the most while being away was the food.
So I tried going to one of my favourite African restaurants to order some. Everything seemed normal until I tried to place an order. I asked for beans and plantain… the waiter said I could have one or the other, but not the two at the same time. I was confused. I decided to go for Jollof rice and chicken. Same story. Pounded yam and Egusi??? No, sorry, it’s either pounded yam OR Egusi.. not both together. I was actually at a loss for words. This didn’t make sense to me, at all.
The waiter then tried to explain.. using words like “change”, “growth” and “trying a new direction”. But I didn’t and still don’t understand. Why change what was already perfect? He explained that any option I chose would still taste good. So, because hunger was killing me, I tried it. In the past few days, I’d try plantain one day, and then beans another etc. And they did taste good. But they were perfect together. Absolutely perfect. The best of the best of African cuisine.
It’s unfortunate that sometimes, with growth, change and whatever-other-word U wanna use… we end up losing sight of where and how we started and altering what was a perfectly working combination. It makes me sad. But such is life I guess.
For now, I will have to make do with either beans OR plantain, and either Jollof OR chicken, at different times. It isn’t quite the same though, so here’s hoping one day someone will realize that you should never have to choose between two good things, when both, together, make a perfect combination.
I miss beans and dodo at my favourite restaurant. Sigh.
In other news, happy birthday Peter and Paul. Shoutout to the chef Jude Okoye. I love you all.


After making a huge impression as a pop artiste in 2013, we all witnessed Cynthia Morgan‘s smooth transition into the dancehall space – a more convenient environment for any female artiste to exist in as there is little or no competition in that territory. 
For over three years, Cynthia Morgan stood out and reigned supreme as the Queen of Nigerian Dancehall music dishing out par reggae tunes that kept us in touch with memories of the movie Third World Cop. Her patois always effortlessly came correct on each record thus leading us to question the originality of her male counterparts.
From 2015, Cynthia Morgan began to slowly sleep on us after her break up and makeup charade with Burna Boy on the visual representation of her Simatiniya single. Just like her preceding records, Simatiniya was a good song but we just never got a follow up (well we got a few leaks and singles which were barely promoted) – leaving us to whirl in our imaginations of what could be possibly wrong with the star girl. Some suggested that the Headies Next Rated award loss was what took a toll on her while others insisted she was either going through a personal storm or having managerial hiccups. 
News reaching us confirms that her supposed hiatus from the music scene is indeed a result of managerial hiccups. A member of her team who spoke to NET revealed that the singer has parted ways with the Jude Okoye led North Side INC Label which she joined in 2013.
The source also disclosed that Morgan has now signed on to a new management which will be announced in due time. It is unclear if Jude Okoye’s own crisis in the dissolution of Psquare could have contributed to his lukewarm approach to managing Cynthia Morgan.
On why she hasn’t been putting out music, our source explained that the managerial transition played a role in the break, but assured that everything is now in order and the singer will be releasing her first single under the new management in the nearest future (January 2018 possibly).
‘We are not granting interviews for now but we will send out a press release to address and inform the public very soon’, He added.
Reggae music isn’t a dominant genre in Nigeria and Cynthia Morgan’s recent inactivity has left the Dancehall throne vacant. We hope to have her back at full throttle.

In an interview with Saturday Beats of The Punch Newspapers, Jaywon addressed the accusation of intellectual property theft leveled against him and X3M Music singer, Simi. Recently, veteran musician, Sir Victor Uwaifo came out to accuse the two singers of pirating his song without his permission.
In the interview, Jaywon admitted that he got the inspiration for his song through Sir Victor Uwaifo’s hit song, ‘Joromi,’ adding that he made efforts to contact the veteran singer officially but his attempt did not yield a result.
He said,
“There is no way I can talk about my hit song, Joromi, without talking about Sir Victor Uwaifo, who we all grew up listening to his music. The whole idea of the song is different from Sir Victor Uwaifo’s but the title reminds anyone of his song. I cannot take away the fact that his song inspired mine. I felt that I should tap into the current beat making rounds in Africa with the song. My song is a love song and I also saw it as an opportunity to promote my artiste, Twist da Fireman, who was also on the song. He added a different sound to the song. I am happy everyone loves the song. I keep working because it is difficult to know the song people would love, so I keep working till I get it right.
“The truth is that I actually wanted to write an official letter to Sir Victor Uwaifo about the issue but when I asked around, I was told that he was not in Lagos. It was just the title and they are not even pronounced the same way. I know what it means to tap into someone’s intellectual property. I would not be that stupid to take someone’s intellectual property without proper authorization from the owner of the song. A lot of people do it but I cannot do such. The instrument I used in my song sounds nothing like what Sir Victor Uwaifo used in his.”
The singer seized the opportunity to apologize to Sir Victor Uwaifo, whom he said he regarded as a father asking him to understand. He mentioned that there were some artistes who had remixed his work without his permission but he chose to look the other way.
“The truth is that I am sorry if he feels that I used his song without his permission. He is our father and I cannot disrespect him. I would be so silly to think of disrespecting someone like Sir Victor Uwaifo, who has been inspiring us since we were kids. In all the interviews that I had granted, I had given him credit for the song but we are talking about the title of the song and not its content. Small Doctor just released a song titled ‘This Year’, am I going to fight him because of the title of the song? Dammy Krane released a song titled ‘Amin’ which is a different version of my song, ‘This Year’; Tim Godfrey released a song titled, ‘This Year’, which is like a proper remix of my song. Dammy Krane and Tim Godfrey took about 60 percent of my song to make theirs. In my own case, we are talking about the title of the song alone, in fact, the titles do not sound the same when you pronounce them. But like I said, I still have to give props to people that deserve it and there is no way I would talk about Joromi without remembering Sir Victor Uwaifo. The reason I did not give due credit to him is that the songs are not the same, they just have similar titles,”

Following the trade of insults between Shatta Wale of Ghana, and Wizkid fans on social media, the Ghanaian dance hall artiste has threatened to disrupt Wizkid’s concert in Ghana, which is scheduled for December 2017.
Shatta Wale made the threat in a series of tweets which read;
SHATTA MOVEMENT revolution has began ..The decision is yours ..Lets show our power we are tired of this foreign nonesense..
@wizkidayo I HEARD YOU COMING DOWN TO GHANA IN DECEMBER.TELL UR 9JA FANS TO APOLOGISE TO OUR PRESIDENT FOR THE DISRESPECT.BEFORE U COME TO GH OR ELSE MY PEOPLE HERE (SM) WONT LET YOU HAVE IT EASY..
Also, a video recently surfaced on the internet showing Shatta Wale shooting bullets in the air, as he calls the name of Nigerian artistes including Wizkid, Timaya, Patoranking who have been subjects of his social media rant.
Watch video below.

Following the fresh beef that erupted between Afro Pop singers, Davido and Wizkid, popular comedian, Seyi Law has penned down an open letter on instagram directly to them. There in, he called for calm between the rival singers with a pinch of advice about human existence.

He urged them to remain focused adding that they should build legacies and not unnecessary fight.

See letter below:

"Our lives are nothing, but the memories we create.
Your celebrity status or starboyism is only a perception.
Whether you're the best or the worst, not everyone will agree.
Don't start hatred neither should you fan the fire of hate.

Someday, our bodies will end up six feet below.
Just above it, our memories will live fading with time.
Sheathe your swords and embrace PEACE.
Build legacies and write your names as legends.
Don't die prematurely for people's obsessions.
Both of you are doing awesomely well, don't stop.
Bless You."

SEYILAW.
