“Bankuli Is Enslaving My Son & Stealing His Royalties”- Mystro’s Mother Cries Out Bitterly

Published

on

Mystro’s mother has lamented out over the way and manner popular artiste Manager, Bankuli enslaved her son for years.

Speaking with Lagos street Journal, Mrs Ajoke Ajayi lamented that, despite huge fame achieved by her son as a result of his creative works as an artiste and music producer, he still lives a life far below his talent. According to her, Bankuli has enslaved her son to the extent he begs him for money. “To me, It’s a modern day slavery. My son is working and Bankuli is getting all his money. He is always promising him. My son has no access to all his catalogues on-line. He opens account in his name and collects royalties.”

Mrs Ajayi said as a widow when she started listening to her son’s music which became a hit. She believed he start making money just like others and help the family but sadly Mystro was living from hand to mouth in Lagos.

“When everyone started talking about Segun (Mystro) and his music which has Wizkid (Immediately). I think he will be having money and not complain as he used to do. I went to visit him in Lagos. When I got there, I realized he is still finding it difficult to live good Life. Infact, he couldn’t afford to buy fuel in the generator.

That’s when I asked him what’s wrong. He mentioned Bankuli as the person who has been holding him down. He says he’s been working Bankuli has been collecting the money and giving him only food money. Fortunately, as Segun was talking to me, Bankuli called him. He picked the call and I requested to speak with him. 

He said Mummy, your son is getting popular. His song is everywhere. I said yes I know but, he is poor. He can’t feed and what’s the benefit of a popular song without money. He then sent in some money to Segun. Since then, I didn’t stop praying for Segun because the spirit continues to inform me that, my son is in bondage and I can only free him with the power of prayers.”

Mrs. Ajoke said both started fighting when she started the prayers. “My son stopped picking his calls. For many days when he could not reach him, he then called me. He said my son has not been picking his calls for days. I told him why will he pick his call? I said he is not benefiting from their working relationship. 

I said why is he the one traveling all over the world and the singer of the song is starving in Nigeria. He didn’t answer me. He said if Segun refused to come back to him, he (Segun) will return to the village. That he will kill his career. That’s when I confronted him in Jesus name. I need people to help me. My son has requested for his catalogue and he is refusing to release them.

The last job that brought the duo together was K1’s ‘Fuji The Sound’. The album was produced by Mystro and it took the intervention of King Wasiu Ayinde himself for Mystro to be paid on the project. Mrs Ajoke is calling on Nigerians and music stakeholders to help plead with Bankuli to release his son’s catalogue.

Rema does the asmr flow on new single “Soundgasm”

Published

on

One thing Rema is not scared of doing is experimenting with sounds and that he did to the full effect on latest song—Soundgasm—produced by frequent producer collaborator, London.

The guitar strings introduces listeners to the pleasing “Do-oh, do-oh, do-oh, do-oh, do-oh, do-oh, do-oh, do-oh, ah-ah” sung by Rema on the chorus of the song, just in time for the Afrobeat sample to kick in.

If Rema’s aim was to actually secret body fluids before making listeners ears shake like they were being vibrated, then he accomplished that in flying colours as he lays beautiful verses by using different sexual innuendos to connote different sex foreplay and positions; on the second verse he boasts of his ability to please and outperform any girl’s sexual expectations of him, “Shorty got a lot in her bucket list / I give her number one, she need a bucket quick / And when we done, she feel me like a majesty”.

One thing I like about Rema’s sound is his continual experimentation of sound and that again was explored on the bridge of Soundgasm, he goes full-on asmr whispering: “Baby girl your body is my medicine
Sweet baby melanin sweeter than sugarcane / If I hickey, hickey on her neck / Sex like a gangster, one my face, innocent” before going fully uncensored on the next few lines.

From the strings to the conspicuous baseline to the intermediary Afrobeat sample, London worked his magic on the production for Soundgasm. An excellent job from both of them, Rema and London.

Listen to Soundgasm. The music video for Rema’s latest banger currently premieres on Apple Music. It should be up for streaming on YouTube and other platforms anytime from 12 PM WAT today.
