Waje Feat. Muna - So Inspired (Official Video & Listen) Published by DjLanre


The "So Inspired" video was initially scheduled to drop online on 04/04/2011 but since it broke on TV on tuesday WAJE's fan mail has exploded with messages from fans asking for video to be released online so that can play back to their fill. And WAJE made the decision to break protocol saying "why wait?" WAJE the fiery songbird, in late 2010 dropped a double single CD carrying her smooth R&B buzz single “For a minute” and “So Inspired” featuring budding femcee Muna.“For a minute” got massive rotation and rave reviews on TV, radio and internet platforms and was well received by music fans across the continent.

The follow up single “So Inspired” an up-tempo tune laced by producer E-Kelly is receiving heavy airplay on major radio stations in Nigeria.The video for “So Inspired” broke on international TV platforms MTV Base and SoundCity on Tuesday and since then fans have been nothing short of delighted. 

WAJE’s purpose on the joint is to inspire young people, females especially to continuously aspire for greatness regardless of the drawbacks in their environment and life in general.In the video WAJE connects with the oppressed woman, as she plays the role of a distressed and abused female who wouldn’t give up on herself. Hopefully more women will feel empowered after watching the video. 

Pictures were shot and directed by ace videographer Clarence Peters in Johannesburg, South Africa. Currently WAJE along with other major artistes is on a tour with the Youngsters Organization in conjunction with IRI and USAID to encourage youths to exercise their rights to vote.  WAJE continues to perform all across Nigeria spreading her message of love and courage at the same time tidying up production of her long anticipated first album W.A.J.E (Words Aren’t Just Enough) which is intended to drop this June.

JA RULE,ASHANTI,CHARLIE BALTIMORE PERFORMING IN MANCHESTER - RARE FOOTAGE

This catalogue of hits performed in the 10miute clip just brings back memories of fantastic club tunes and a wonderful 4-5 yr period when the Murder Inc family had the music world on lock down. Most recently JaRule has been battling legal issues, Ashanti is trying to relaunch her career and Charlie Baltimore has been doing her stuff low key too. Either way we wish all the acts the best of luck i their endeavours and hope they are back where they deserve to be and that's on the music scene making brilliant songs. Until then enjoy the best of Murder Inc..... ITS MURDERRRRR!

FACTORY78 EXCLUSIVE - 5Five interview. Published by DjLanre


5-5 is a pop fusion duo with an inclining for experimental genres that have crossover appeal. It is made up of Luther Azamati (Papi) and Jeffery Opoku Agyekum (Killy). They rep Adabraka, a suburb of Accra. They grew up around a lot of music and were exposed to a plethora of genres which still influence their song writing and flow.

Their debut single was done together with Batman Samini (MOBO awards winner) called Bull (4 better 4 worse) on the Appietus compilation. Papi is a typical hip-hop head going back to the mid 90's with countless cameo appearances on several mixtapes that never got mainstream radio rotation. His music is inspired a lot of the times by abstract thoughts that he either translates in his paintings or lyrics. He's mostly hanging with his boyz in the hood or at his manager's crib writing and listening to music.

Killy on the other is a rap scholar of sorts. He teamed up with Papi about three years ago after he managed to overcome the love-hate relationship he had with the underground. Killy currently studies Business and Accounting at Central University College. Their manager is Nana Asiamah 'Bullhaus' Hanson. 5-5 says they want to be clearly distinguished from the signature three-month burnout cuts floating on urban radio lately.

Wrong Ways To Break Up In A Relationship

Surveys have been carried out by dumped lovers on ways their exes said ta ta to them. Match.com have compiled a list of relationship breakup donts and they are as follows:
How not to break-up
Unless you want to be branded a coward, bully or cheat take special heed of these ways not to call time on your relationship.
Don’t dump via text
You’re deluded if you think ending a relationship by text (especially one written in text speak) is anything other than cruel. Imagine how disposable the recipient will feel when they realise you couldn’t even spare the time to type the words out in full. You’re basically just handing over plenty of ammunition to bad mouth you to your friends and associates.
Don’t send a break-up letter
A heartfelt emotional outpouring explaining your motivations and reasons for breaking-up is just the sort of thing the former object of your affections would appreciate right? Wrong! Receiving a random letter out of the blue is unlikely to do anything other than make them angry and bitter. Save the soul searching for another day and go make your excuses in person.
Don’t pull a vanishing act
Unless you’re actively trying to disrespect your soon-to-be ex, slipping out the back door should not even be an option. Saying you’re ‘just popping out to get some milk’, never to be seen again is not only cowardly but morally reprehensible. Dealing with the pain of break-up is hard enough without the added anguish of not knowing what’s become of you.
For the remaining breakup donts please click on the link below, i know i did boy was i shocked at what i saw. Source yahoo.com

Nigerian Comedian Dies in Car Crash. Published by DjLanre

Car crash fatality comedian CD John CD John, one of the best upcoming Nigerian Comedian has just been confirmed dead after an accident last night when coming from an event. Less than a month to the first anniversary of the tragic death of rapper Dagrin, another very bright and promising star has passed on, in very shocking circumstances.

Multiple sources have confirmed that CD John, who emerged last year as one of the most promising acts in Nigeria’s stand-up comedy industry, is dead. The young cracker, who became a regular performer at almost every gig/concert since late 2010 when major promoters and critics first noticed him, was on his way back from Industry Nite when he crashed his car and ended up at St Nicholas Hospital, in Lagos Island.

‘He was the MC at Harrysong’s album listening party which held at Tribeca’, a source reveals. Yesterday’s Industry Nite was dedicated to Questionmark act Harrysong who is promoting his new album. ‘He was driving back to the mainland, heading to his home at Jakande estate, Isolo when the accident happened’. The exact crash location hasn’t been confirmed but it was gathered that He was rushed to St Nicholas where he gave up the ghost at around 7am this morning.

Fellow comedians like Gbenga Adeyinka, Teju Babyface, Tee A, Basketmouth, Ali Baba and a certain Tee Gee are confirming that they are aware of the accident, and reports of his death. However, no one has seen a doctor’s statement or his corpse as at press time. The late comedian, born John Chijioke, was a truly gifted singer and comedian who tried his hands first on music (as far back as 2006) before settling for stand-up comedy. ‘He used to sing but when I found out he was funny, I pushed him to join me do comedy. 

He had a breakthrough before me. And now that I want to be proud of him, I suddenly lost him’ his friend Tee Gee says. CD John will mostly be remembered for his funny Christian choruses – a unique style where he messes around with the lyrics of popular songs; presenting his own account of how different Nigerian tribes would deliver the lyrics. With a superb voice, growing repertoire and audience control; he was set to become a big player in the competitive stand-up comedy scene; Source/THIS DAY LIVE

Chris Brown - Beautiful People (Official Video)


Controversy aside, Chris Brown's F.A.M.E promotional tour continues after the little problems of the ABC appearance. Chris brown has realesed the music video to his latest single "Beautiful People"off the new album thats picking up critical acclamation from industry insiders. "Beautiful People" is another dance type song with breezy showing off one of his various vocal styles talking about the kind of people he has met along the way. He surely uses this video to show appreciation for his industry mates who have stuck by him through the ordeals of the last two years. Everyone from Swizz beats to The Game, Bow wow and Kanye west can be seen in different studio sessions with young breezy. He hasnt stopped thanking his fans for their support since his brush with the law and  i think this video goes a long way in thanking his friends too. We think this is a fun video to go with an up tempo song. Factory78 surely approves.

Chris Brown Smashes Window, Rips Off Shirt At “Good Morning America” Published by DjLanre

Oh dear. Chris Brown, you screwed up once again. TMZ is reporting that Chris Brown exploded in rage behind the scenes at Good Morning America this morning by smashing a window and storming out without a shirt on. All of this was triggered by on-air questions about the Rihanna incident.

After the interview, Brown freaked out, storming into his dressing room and screaming so loud, the people in hair and makeup became alarmed and called security. Brown was so out of control, and one source present tells us he smashed a window in his dressing room, and the glass shattered and some shards fell onto 43rd and Broadway.

Brown had ripped off his shirt and left the building (seen here in these photos), blowing off another performance he was supposed to do for the ABC website. Then on his way out of the building, Brown confronted a segment producer, got in his face and stared him down. So much for the reformed Chris Brown. What do you think of this latest incident?

SEX SELLS: Timothy Bloom "till the End of time" music video

I dont know what the world is turning into but it seems like showing sexy positions in music videos goes a long way in getting your name and your talent recognised. The UK and beyond has been in a state of frenzy since the release of UK/Nigerian artist Skepta's latest music video "sex all over the house" which displays exactly what the lyrics say. On the other hand American singer Timothy Bloom's above video hasnt revealed any sex in various places but it sure shows off two healthy Afro bodies locked together whilst being naked. Both people are seen singing the very soulful song "till the end of time" to each other in the steamy position they are in. What this video does is capture your attention with the lady's outstanding "BEHIND" and the matching chocolate complexton that they both have ( no discrimination all skin complextions welcome here, just explaining visuals) gives the video a very dark and sexy feel too. Even though the visuals takes your full attention, its been done in such a way that the music is still the focal point . This is a wonderful case of both the video and song working well together to promote a song but i have to say the "A*s" on the lady is fine as hell. what do you guys think of the video ?

Internet Hero Who Fights Back Against Bully Gives First interview

The above kid Casey Heynes has become an internet sensation after a video of him fighting back against a bully was posted on youtube. In the original video, Casey can be seen being hit in the face a couple of times and stomach by another kid . This continued until he had enough, picked up the bully and slammed him on the pavement. The boy got up gingerly and hobbled away with his friends left speachless and unable to continiue the taunting. Casey and the bully has since been suspended from school due to the schools zero tolerance policy towards violence but the world had caught wind of the story through the video being posted and thousands of messages of support have been sent to Casey via the internet. It surely brings back childhood memories of a pack mentality by bullies but Casey has sure fought his tormentors off . Its hard to believe that just a year ago Casey had contemplated suicide due to constant bullying at school . His efforts will go a long way in giving confidence to young kids being bullied at school with nobody in their corner. This is the first interview he has granted since he became an internet hero.

Collie Buddz - "Playback" (Official Music Video)Published by DjLanre


Hiatus INSURRECTION feat. Linton Kwesi Johnson. Published by DjLanre


Iranian-English producer Hiatus’ collaboration with dub reggae poet Linton Kwesi Johnson is released on the 30th anniversary of the riots it takes as its subject, and which levelled the Brixton streets that both artists call home.

Hiatus – real name Cyrus Shahrad – has long been fascinated by the events of April 1981, a violent retaliation against years of joblessness, segregation and police intimidation among Brixton’s black community, and which shook Thatcher’s Britain to the core.“It seems a potent time to release Insurrection,” says Hiatus, “partly because of the anniversary, but also because we’re once again staring into the cold eyes of a Conservative government oblivious to the dangers of racial and social profiling.

“We’re facing financial meltdown and mass unemployment, we’re having our libraries closed and our forests sold, and we’re seeing disabled protesters ripped from their wheelchairs when they try to sound the alarm on the streets of London. If there was ever a time to reflect on the UK’s largest outpouring of community anger in recent centuries, this is it.”Like the punk movement that flowered amid uncollected rubbish in 1979’s ‘Winter of Discontent’, Insurrection is the sort of urgent protest music that can only be born of disenchantment: part warning, part clarion call to action, and a sharp contrast to the strings-driven nostalgia of Save Yourself, the sweeping debut single released to widespread acclaim last December.The track opens with distorted dub organs and Linton’s smoke smothered drawl, before bottoming out with a speaker-shaking bassline and a building sense of menace lent a melancholy edge by a distant piano. It’s a tune both brutal and unexpectedly beautiful, and one paired with a video compiled from archive footage of the riots by Hiatus himself (http://bit.ly/dL09YV).

“Not that I want to paint Brixton as a war zone,” he adds. “I’ve lived here for years, and can honestly say that it’s one of the most peaceful and culturally harmonious places imaginable. But some injustices are hard to forget, and now more than ever it seems important to remember the dangers of ignoring people under intense pressure.”

                             PRAISE FOR HIATUS’ DEBUT LP ‘GHOST NOTES’

"Love these tracks." Bonobo "An unbroken wave of haunting electronica that allows you to forget – albeit briefly – that people like James Blunt actually walk the earth." The Stool Pigeon 'I really like the production' and 'i really liked it, it reminded me of hearing massive attack' James Lavelle "Hiatus makes music with melody, music to remember. It’s the kind of melancholic electronica that makes your skin crawl, it’s that beautiful." Bad Fotography

OJB Jezereel - Don't Let Me Down (Listen & Download) Published by DjLanre

Ojb jezreel aka jigga man, is a renowned producer writer and executive producer for over two decades.During the phase of the birth of the new age music in the late 90`s , Ojb helped to redefine the sound to be more globally accepted with the likes of TX, kush and etim eyo(Arista records) which made the likes of the then leila steinberg of interscope records see the possibility in our music becoming international mainstream.

In Nigeria the birth was defined by the rugged man, Jazzman, 2face, dbanj, cmion, nomoloss to mention a few who he not just only produced their albums but executive produced too. These sounds however gave birth to the new age sound of Nigeria, the terry g,duncan mighty (who was a trainee under him in d mid 90`s)timayas etc became products of that era.

Evidently his God father status is eminent in the fact that at least 90% of the industry has passed through his hands even the current sensation wiz kid trained with jigga! His biggest break was with 2face's African queen setting a yet to be beaten record not just in Nigeria but in Africa! 10million copies in Nigeria alone and 8million copies internationally, this made him the most sort after producer in Nigeria and some regions of Africa

He stamped his presence on the Industry as an artiste with the club banger that still has a hold on the clubs years after! Pretete! Meaning the involuntary movement of a womans back side. And crowned it with a classic love song searching! That album did 3million copies. Now he is back again with a brand new single fast sweeping in to people “don't let me down” just a month of release of the singles from various sites has done 3000 downloads. The format from industry critics which is his next album is said to be the best of jigga! will Be out in April.

Ghanaian music starlet Anajo Black has unleashed his latest work “Human like You”, a song that is expected to retire all the doubters who questioned the rookie’s true potential.

Human like You is a teaser to the artiste’s album expected to be released very soon. The song, of Afro pop genre, outlines the singer’s versatility after a decent response to his debut mixtape joints of R&B and Neo-soul genres launched him onto the big stage last year.

Mr. Black, after the release of his previous works earned a few decent shows including a chance to perform at POTPOURRE Cultural Dance Expo and the grand finale of the Music Mania reality show, and perhaps the excitement of the big stage inspired the drastic improvement with his latest song.

HIP-HOP STARS HYPOCRITES ON NATE DOGG R.I.P MESSAGES?

I'm sure you are all aware that the west coast g-funk singer is dead now (unless you are living under a rock or something) , anyway the internet went crazy yesterday with the news of his death and hip-hop stars who had worked with the star quickly turned twitter and facebook as well as radio stations into portals for getting their messages heard. Stars from 50cent to Busta rhymes were seen on twitter sending their r.i.p messages while others were on hip-hop forums and radio stations talking about what a great person and entertainer he was. In the midst of the media frenzy was the video clip above, showing his longtime friend and colleague WarrenG back in 2010 talking about Nates condition and how the artist and his family were in need of finances to clear his medical bills. Nate was said to be going for constant sessions of physiotherapy to get him back to walk and ultimately sing again (but we all know what happened next). My question to you is, why are there so many hip-hop stars coming out of the wood work to talk about their friendship to the late star and how great he was after his death when at the time he most needed some of their messages and support they were no where to be found? Hypocrites? you be the judge. Published by Adesope twitter/sopsydoo

Beyonce Beefin With Lady GaGa…Calls Her “Tacky”

According to rumours doing the rounds, Beyonce is not happy with Lady Gaga and thinks she is "tacky"! Apparently the tension has been growing between the two, who collaborated on supersong (that's what we're calling epic songs now) Telephone, for months. But it came to a big egg shaped head at the Grammys when Lady Gaga appeared in an er...egg.

“The bad blood between Beyonce and GaGa has been brewing for months, but it really exploded after the Grammy Awards in February.” A source told the National Enquirer, “Beyonce thought Gaga’s entrance was way over the top and ridiculously self-serving. Every other artist worked the red carpet in a traditional manner, but GaGa made it all about her. “ We see where you're coming from Beyonce but didn't you think it was fun to see her turn up inside an egg?
The source continued, “Beyonce believes that musicians should let their talent do the talking, and she finds it really tacky that GaGa constantly tries to one-up everyone with her ridiculous fashion statements. She’s telling people that she wants to take Gaga down a few pegs. We're not sure how much we believe this because even Beyonce can't say that Lady Gaga isn't a talented songwriter, despite how barmy she may be. Also Lady Gaga recently told MTV that she wasn't featuring any other artists on her new album saying "I've already collaborated with my favourite female in the business." Awww see Lady Gaga loves Beyonce but does Honey B love her back?Lady Gaga is a bit upset about this as she thought they were best buds "She never expected it from Beyonce, whom she saw as a friend and supporter. GaGa plans to confront her the next time they run into each other and demand an apology." A Beyonce Gaga showdown? What are they gonna do sing at each other? Sing-off, sing-off, sing-off!

Do you believe this? If so does Beyonce have a point? Who would you back Lady Gaga or Beyonce?
