MI, 7days, Music and Me

7days by MI

Some few days ago when MI tweeted truths about #7days, I actually thought he was talking about a part of the bible and I became anxious when I learnt that he was talking about a song he just released.

My anxiety died and I chose not to download nor listen to the song after reading his blasphemy tweet which stated that “God listened to the song 7days before creating the world in 7days”. I mean if you want some cheap hype, why involve the name of the Lord in a blasphemy way?? *in 2face’s voice* ‘nobody holy pass’ but this is just too much to do for a cheap hype but….

After almost 48hours of de-activating my twitter account, I realised that the only thing I can use to cover up for my twit-life is this blog which also might be going down soon but since it is still up, ‘I do this’!

I searched for the song 7days by MI and I downloaded it but to my utmost dismay and disappointment, the song is no better than D’Banjs worst song ‘I do this’. Lacking in lyrics and delivery.

The song, 7days by MI falls in the category of songs I will like to call “The Beat Songs’. These are songs whose beats are much more and highly valuable than the lyrics on the tracks and one distinct feature of songs of this nature is that they always sound better with every repeat play, but….

What matters most, Peoples opinion and reactions to the song, right? And where do we gather most of all these opinions? On twitter, right?

Now let’s be sincere with ourselves. We all know that majority of twitter users are ass kissers, right? Yeah! Even you. You joined in the hyping of the song just because it is coming from the self acclaimed ‘African Rapper No 1’ and because someone you rated higher than yourself hyped it. Some of you hyped the song just to get a RT (ReTweet) from MI and other twitter users even while you were yet to listen to it.

I don’t need you to agree with my opinion but I know that deep down inside you, you know that am not too far from the truth.

What you people have failed to realise is that a music promoters voice is far from an honest opinion. It is just the voice of his business and probably the voice that puts food on his table, the voice that increases the figures in his bank accounts and the voice that inserts cheddars in his pocket.

That said #MovingOn!


D’Banj, Music and Me

****I have written this post for weeks, not with the intention of publishing it but just to put down my thoughts and Move on but…. oh well……. Update is below. EnJoY!!!

It was good news for the Nigerian Music/Entertainment Industry, Music lovers and most especially the Nigerian born singer and his Producer, D’Banj and DonJazzy when Kanye’s own G.O.O.D Music Label signed them on.
Though, rumour has it that they ‘paid‘ their way through as busy bodies claimed they paid something in the range of $10,000 to Snopp Dogg who brought them into the ‘international collabo lime light‘ which ultimately got them the sign-on contract but #IsThatWhyWeAreHere? #MovingOn

Recently, D’Banj dropped a new single titled ‘Oliver‘ aka ‘Oliver Twist‘ which I guess is off his forthcoming album, ‘Mr. Endowed‘ and just like every other music lover, I was happy to have it after so much hype and promo but unfortunately ‘O di dan dan, D’Banj needy needy kon-kon‘ to wash his head and mouth in the river ogun cos this song is just way below Par and in fact it’s wack.
I don’t even want to believe that some people actually like the oliva song *sighs* talk of ass-kissing and Famzing. DonJazzy has really influenced peoples thinking faculty with that act of tweeting recharge vouchers and also thanks to the Enigma competition which D’Banj could have scanned through and ‘steal’ some wonderful lines but he didn’t 😦 instead, he (D’Banj), DonJazzy, Kanye (at least na hin label he dey under now) and G.O.O.D music decided to deal with us (listeners of good music) by serving us a song that is just not worthy to be called a song but more of an impromptu display of what I will call Vic’o syndrome.

Someone said I don’t understand the Naija Music Market, maybe she’s right but I will like to ask if Nonsense is what makes naija music market the leader in the African Music Market and if he D’Banj is still trying to limit himself to the Naija music market instead of focusing on how to penetrate the international music market building on the already established standards of the G.O.O.D Music label.

If you can accept D’Banj’s Oliver as Good music, then why do u find it hard to accept TundeEdnut’s my Kindda Song and Catching Cold?

Don’t get it twisted, I like DonJazzy, he’s a G.O.O.D Producer, I like D’Banj, he’s a G.O.O.D Entertainer but like @adekunleGOLD said ‘Oliver is below D’Banj’ #ThatIsAll

“RT @pesa67: Brand new yimu.. Wetin I don delete since @THEBEAT999FM: Brand New Music: Oliver Twist by D’banj”

****UPDATE: First of all, I guess you all have Facebook or twitter account so you should have probably seen something relating to the oliver video completion, if not Youtube is your friend. Secondly, according to the Vanguard news paper; The Nigeria Broadcasting Commission [NBC] banned and ‘advised’ all media houses in a circular issued to them to halt the play of the song (Oliver Twist) on radio or TV stations with immediate effect, on the grounds of using “Lewd Lyrics”. He (D’Banj) was said to have mentioned Omotola Jalade’s backside in his new song: “I like Omotola, her y*nsh is bigger…..” *sighs* Lewd??? see english abi na grammer…. But oh well….
