Don Jazzy, Tiwa Savage faces arrest over political statement



Don Jazzy, Tiwa Savage faces arrest over political statement 3

Nigerian music producer, Michael Ajereh AKA Don Jazzy, and Tiwatope Savage popularly known as Tiwa Savage, were requested by the Nigerian Police and DSS for questioning over alleged political speeches made against the administration of President Muhamamdu Buhari.

In the current months, following an increasing rise in sexual assault cases across Nigeria especially upon women, Tiwa Savage started a movement known as “WeAreTired” in protest of the situation.

Together with music producer, Don Jazzy, Savage was invited to the DSS office in Lagos two weeks ago during which they were advised to be careful with their posts on the social media.

Shortly after that episode, the two celebrities together with colleagues Yemi Alade and Waje were charged by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Zubairu Muazu, who while sharing efforts they were making to stop rape and other problems in the state and country, warned the musicians to steer clear of political comments in order not to acquire the wrath of the President Buhari administration.

An anonymous member of Tiwa Savage’s management team confirmed the development to reporters, who revealed that the celebrated female artiste will not cease speaking for Nigerians regardless of any move by the government.

But as if to confirm the subtle warning from government, Don Jazzy and Tiwa Savage both appear to have toned down their social media posts in recent days after the meeting with the DSS and police in Lagos.

Apart from the two celebrities, the DSS has also invited a former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Obadiah Mailafia, over his remarks on the operations of Boko Haram in the Northern part of Nigeria.

While speaking on a radio programme, Mailafia had stated that a serving governor in the North was the commander of Boko Haram.

He was invited twice for questioning by the DSS and also invited for interrogation by the police in Abuja, which he turned down by seeking a relief in court.

Tiwa Savage and Seyi Shay caught in a heated argument at the salon (video); here might be why



It was a rainy cool day (at least in most part of the country) until a video surfaced online via popular media head and influencer, Tunde Ednut’s page of female Nigerian singers, Tiwa Savage and Seyi Shay in a very heated argument over what seems to be a matter of disrespect coming from the latter.

From the video embedded above, it’s obvious that “Mummy Jam Jam” Tiwa Savage felt slighted in the manner of approach Seyi Shay tried using in greeting her. Although it wasn’t recorded, it appeared Seyi Shay had walked up to Tiwa Savage in a bid to exchange pleasantries, even saying “Hi” in the process but Tiwa was not having it; immediately ceasing the moment to call out her fellow Nigerian artiste for disrespecting her via her (i.e Seyi Shay’s) music and in many interviews.

You say you be my sister but you wan collect my lover / You be deceiver, olofofo heart-robber / Na why I no dey f–k with you anymore / I no dey die for you anymore / You know I’m not savage, I dey pay my bills” were Sheyi Shay’s exact lyrics in a song she released some years back, in which she covered Kizz Daniel’s “Fvck You”, apparently calling out Tiwa Savage for trying to “collect [her] lover” even name-dropping Tiwa’s maiden last name—Savage—and ex-husband, Tee Billz.

That might have been the root cause of the rift between Tiwa and Seyi at the salon which turned into all sorts of name calling and slut-shaming from both parties as can be seen from the video embedded below.

Tomi Thomas sticks to his working formula on “Hopeless Romantic” EP (review)



Tomi Thomas refuses to bow to the pressuring mainstream influence, sticking to the working formula, a niche he has carved for himself, a lane where Alternative and R&B music dwells peacefully which on occasions, might visit other genres but the stay never lasts longer than intended.

Hopeless Romantic is a continual reminder of Tomi Thomas’ musical brilliance, softcore blended with recurring high rising vocals on well selected plush productions or instrumentals. His pen game never ceases to amaze listeners too.

Tomi Thomas brings the emotions to the amusement park, tagging for a soulful but quite joyous emotional-rollercoaster ride on his most recent EP, Hopeless Romantic.

On Hopeless Romantic, Tomi Thomas kept the lyrics as intrinsic as possible, just as suggested by the title of the project, reflecting on why love is hard to come by despite the effort he has put into looking for a lasting one in form of a relationship; he expressed it better on second song and title track – “Hopeless Romantic” – when he said: “On my own / So many days on my own / No credit on my phone / Im just a hopeless romantic / On my own”.

Echoing same message on the hook of “Waiting”, Tomi says: “True love doesn’t leave in the morning / I said no no no no” complementing it on the next verse, “Got me under lock and key my darling / Why you got me begging please my darling”.

The production on the EP is just as slow paced as Tomi’s vocals but with a touch of Afrobeat and Reggae Dancehall on “Waiting” and “Hurricane” (featuring Buju Banton) respectively, not forgetting the Reggaeton vibes on “GoGo Dancer”.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to your ears Tomi Thomas on Hopeless Romantic, sip your liquor, juice if you may and relish the moment. Enjoy!
