Covid-19 lockdown has humbled me…I’m now managing my savings – Shina Peters open up

Published

on

Afro juju exponent, Sir Shina Peters, has opened up on how the Covid-19 lockdown has humbled him and how he now spends his saving as no current jobs are forthcoming!

Sir Shina Peters poured out his mind in this chat with City people saying

” As regards Covid-19 I have learnt a lot. The Covid-19 has shown to us that this life is far more delicate than we can imagine. I now believe that whatever you are doing today in a second, the table can turn around. I have learnt to be more conscious. I have learnt to be more humble, because we may be seeing today and tomorrow we are no more together. Apart from that for us, especially it’s only when we are eating and dinning together we remember ourselves. We have been indoor for 3 months now.

So I have learnt to be more cautious now especially when it comes to savings. If we don’t work for 3 months and money is not coming from anywhere, if you don’t know how would you will manage, if the money is not forthcoming, the one you saved too will finish.

As long as we are still on the lockdown there is nothing like music, there is nothing like concert, there is nothing like social life. So if this pandemic continues till next year, how are we going to survive? But people are talking about banking they are talking about corporate world, they are forgetting that it’s we artistes they always use when they are going up there.
They use us when they are going for the Presidency, Senate etc. to be singing for them. But today no one is remembering us. That’s why I learnt to respect integrity. If you have integrity you have everything God forbid, I will not go into the street and be begging people for money, but what I am saying is it’s good to save because this kind of thing can still happen any time. What I am spending now is my past savings. We always advise artistes to always make sure their music is a constant materials. By the grace of God I have many materials to turn to money anyday anytime. But what about those artistes who have sold their master tapes?”

Olakira finally acquires a Maserati

Published

on

Olakira who released the catchy groundbreaking hit single last year June titled In My Maserati, a song which had him show off his wooing skills but unlike the cheesy pick-up line go-to used by other guys, Olakira flexed and simply asked the girl to “Hop in my Maserati”. The song even became more of a hit when Davido jumped on it, adding a verse to the remix, which was simplified as Maserati, instead of it’s original three-word title.

It is September of 2021, a year and 3 months since the original release of Olakira’s debut hit single and what better way to celebrate the blessings that came forth from it, than buy spoiling himself. Olakira does this by actually acquiring a Maserati car for himself.

The blue coloured speed beauty, a Maserati Lavante Hybrid 2021 model costs about $78,290 (USD) (according to car.usnews.com), an approximate 32,216,335.00 in naira; Olakira captions this “A dream come through, we rave in a maserati now!!

Since Maserati, Olakira has gone on to release other singles including his sophomore EP—”4play”—in May of this year. Congratulations to him.

Burna Boy did not sellout the 02 arena, attendees claim

Published

on

Nigerian musician—Burna Boy—was the talk of the town on Friday, 27th of August for his energetic performance at the 02 arena, London which he confirmed via several posts on his Instagram that it was a shutdown event as advertised. Shortly after his very lively stage presence, Burna Boy wrote on his story: “I Sold OUT the 02 by myself. At the prices I wanted. The way I wanted. Never talk much, Just show Action !” (sic) in a bid to cancel the rumours circulating the internet about his ‘Space Drift Tour’ which held in the UK not being a sold out event.

Much to the surprise of many today, Diane, a violinist who performed at the grand show went on her Instagram and wrote that it was actually a total of 12,000 people who attended the show as opposed to the maximum 20,000 seat capacity in the 02. Diane’s post (probably unknowingly to her) has started an online trend where attendees and fans of Burna Boy have come out in support of her and agreed to the fact that the 02 performance by Burna Boy was not a shutdown event.

A user by the handle @shonibay attests: “I was there – the ahow was really good but it didn’t sell out” yet another writes: “Boxes were empty. Seats were empty but the vibe and energy was there. So you pipol keep screaming sold out. Like say you were there mctchewww.” (sic) per @TopeTops. The most confusing tweet of all and yet-to-be confirmed claim according to @RonxxO reads thus: “Getting into burna boy’s concert for free was actually the highlight of august [ROTFL emoji] Friday was too lit I want to rewind time bro” (sic).

In an effort to dispute Burna Boy’s brag of selling out the 02 arena, one thing stands out among his fans and that is the fact they all testify to the electric performance by the African Giant singer. A commendable attitude! As of the time of writing, neither Burna Boy nor his camp have come out to say whether the claims are true or false. So is Burna Boy or the attendees to be believed?

Published

on

Don Baba J and Odogwu linking up might just be the collab of the year as both of them are confirmed to be on the their first collaboration ever titled Question which will be released tomorrow, Tuesday, 24th of August.

Don Jazzy and Burna Boy being on the same song was first teased last week when the Mavin boss posted a photo of him and Burna inside a drop-top car, giving hints that the video for Question have been shot already and now the food is finally being warmed in the microwave, set to be dished on a platter of platforms from Apple Music to Spotify to YouTube etc tomorrow.

Safe to say, Don Jazzy doesn’t go wrong when it comes to making beats—scratch that—hits, okay both and Burna on his part, ignites like the Human Torch from Fantastic Four whenever on a track, hence we should expect nothing but flames tomorrow when Question hits mainstream streaming platforms.
