From “So Far Gone” to recently released mixtape, “Dark Lane Demo Tapes”, certified lover boy Drizzy didn’t hesitate to show off his vast array of discography on the trailer for upcoming album – “Certified Lover Boy” (CLB).

Immediate the video begins, you see a young boy who plays the part of young Aubrey Graham as seen with the way his hair is styled as he and Drake position a love shaped pattern on the front left side of their hair.

The 1-minute long trailer had easter egg laid on every scene of the well directed and thoughtful trailer of the CLB album. Just some very few seconds after young Aubrey shows, we see him doing an impersonation of his first mixtape – “So Far Gone” – as we can see spotlight being shed upon young Aubrey and confetti raining on him.

The 00:13 mark of the video shows Drake re-creating his first commercially and well recognised album – “Take Care”

The next scene sees Drake giving an impression for his “Nothing Was The Same” album

Drake chooses to skip his game changing mixtape, “If You Are Reading This It’s Too Late” probably because the cover art is just a plain white background with words written on it as he skips to give us a subtle mention of one of the best-selling albums of the 2010’s in “Views” as he shows top elevation angles of buildings, like I said this is a subtle reference so many people might not notice it immediately

Once again Drake chooses to skip one of his the playlist project, “More Life” as the next reference Drake put is to his 2020 “ Dark Lane Demo Tapes” as we see Drake dressed in all-black with a ski mask revealing his eyes only.

As we can from the screenshot of “Dark Lane Demo Tapes”, Drake chose not to zoom in on his eyes fro the reference and this is not a mistake as Drake subtly implements a character from the popular video game and animation “Mortal Kombat” as the character shares same name with the title of his 2018’s album – “Scorpion”. Yet again, Drake uses the art of being subtle to reference one of his albums.

Form the glowing eyes, Drake references the Get Over Here animated character in Scorpion.

As the video for the trailer draws closer to the 1-minute part Drake reveals the name of his upcoming album – “Certified Lover Boy” and ends the video revealing the release date of the album to be January 2021

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?

“Question” by Don Jazzy and Burna Boy to be released tomorrow

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.
