Through this vision, they were inspired to form an elite group of style, finesse, and sound all their own. As time progressed, many members were added. First with the meeting of Sterling Ogletree (Young Flame) in early High School. After they started to work on music together, the movement began and the power behind it grew as well. A few momentum builds later and the group added another member, Vance (Case-Closed). Case-Closed brought a sort of old school Hip-Hop feel to the group. After that, its just been hit after hit after hit. As the group moves forward five years strong, P.C. now consists of Young Venom, Young Flame, Casanova, Case-Closed,  2-Face .PC is more than just a music group, i

  Amber Rose PhotoYou’ve probably seen the naked Amber Rose photos making their way around the internet by now, and she has taken to Twitter to address the striking images in a series of tweets. Here goes:

"I was gonna wait until my radio show to address this but I want to say this now. I trusted someone that worked 4 me & allowed them to use my laptop a million times, I caught this person sending my pics to themselves and I fired this person immediately Wiz & I & both of our families have known about this for 2 months now. We tried to prepare ourselves for this day. Those pictures r 2 1/2 years old just sitting in my computer. I’m really hurt & embarr#!@%*#ed because I have so many young girls that look up to me. I would never put those pics out of myself.

The company that I was working with no longer wants to work with me because of these pics and that prevents me from getting money to take care of my family. Its a messed up situation when someone so evil comes into ur life and tries to destroy it. I know I’m not the only girl in the world that has taken pics like that but they were very private. I’m sorry for letting my young Rosebuds down. Pls understand this was a result of trusting a person that didn’t deserve my trust. I have cried for the past 2 days but I know this to shall p#!@%*#. Thank u for all of ur support.

No matter what I go thru or how embarrassed I am I have a man that Loves me & has my back thru everything. @RealWizKhalifa thank u."

Kenny G is a widely- travelled performer and musician with a fine and attractive sound many jazz listeners love to hate.

A phenomenally successful instrumentalist whose recordings make the pop charts, Kenny G's sound has been a staple on adult contemporary and smooth jazz radio stations since the mid-'80s.

Band members and support acts for the Grammy award winning performer will arrive in Lagos on Friday while Kenny G is expected to hit Lagos on Saturday in-company of personal aides and associates.

Sax Appeal is a concept created by Nigerian jazz maestro Mike Aremu in 2009 which is geared towards the Rebirth and Promotion of Live Musical Performances in Nigeria.

Past editions have featured multiple MOBO award winner Yolanda Brown and top performers and saxophonists from Nigeria and South Africa.

TEEGEE’S INDUSTRY NAIJA SINGLE HITS THE AIRWAVES

Links to this post
TeeGee, an up-coming player in the entertainment industry has put out a single featuring Now Muzik managed Gidi Gorgeous. The single titled Industry Naija is a fusion of comedy, and hard core rap, indeed, a must hear.
https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&ik=37ad2cc6d1&view=att&th=130c1f69763fda91&attid=0.4&disp=inline&zwTeegee a.k.a Da Unusual brings into the music industry a new twist from a humorous angle. For TeeGee who sees music as a big deal, “the game is changed”. The Industry Naija single also contains Industry Naija instrumental and acapella.
This creative music comedian used punch lines from notable artistes. According to him,
 “Solomon was the King of the Zanga and Solomon had over three hundred kokolets in his koko mansion”.
He also used punch lines like:
 “…and I said to the devil, in the mighty name of Jesus, Ori e’ fokasibe”.
“If you’re still in this church and you don’t have Jesus Christ, and you’re still sitting down, you’re in a long thing”.
Surely, a lot of hard work was put into tieing up these punch lines. He subscribed to this music comedy which he would rather refer to as Da Unusual because he wants “to stand out in order to build a mega brand”. His other works includes True Life Story, Nna Men, High Me among others. According to him, his relationship with Now Muzik, the major promoters of his Industry Naija is beyond business, Now Muzik is my family as long as I entertain”.
Nigerian music and music industry has become dynamic to the point where a lot of creativity is infused to attract the right audience and to secure a nitch for this artiste especially in this era when “boiz are not smiling”. If muzik must pay, that is, being worth the effort put into it, then, excellence must be the watch word.

Presently causing a whole lot of excitement among campus students is the ETISALAT EasyCliq’s CliqFest campus road show.

INTERVIEW: JHBYO TALKS ABOUT HIS MUSIC, LIFE AND NEW VIDEO 'DEM JUST DEY RUN THEIR MOUTH'

Links to this post
AJIBOLA TORIOLA DOES NOT RING A BELL TO SOME OF US BUT JHBYO IS A HOUSEHOLD NAME IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY. HE WAS SHOT INTO LIMELIGHT WHEN HE FEATURED ON TERRY THA RAP MAN'S TRACK AND HE ALSO FEATURED IN SUNNY NEJI'S VIDEO 'AWARAWA'. JHBYO HAS BEEN INTO MUSIC SINCE WHEN HE WAS YOUNG. HERE'S A LITTLE CHAT ABOUT HIM , HIS MUSIC AND RECORD LABEL BAY PRODUCTIONS.

LETS MEET YOU?
My real names are Ajibola toriola popularly known as JHBYO . I rap, sing and I do music generally
TELL US ABOUT YOUR BACKGROUND?
I was born and bred in Lagos. I’m from a family of six and I’m the third child.  I grew up on the Island , I schooled on the island , my primary and secondary school was on the island before I proceeded to Ogun State which is my State. I went to Olabisi Onabanjo University and I studied Mass Communication there.
YOU READ MASS COMMUNICATION IN SCHOOL,WHY DID YOU GO INTO MUSIC?
Music has been a part of me since I was young especially when I was in secondary.  music has been in me and also a part of me . I felt comfortable doing rap back then in school the lyrics flowed back then in school when I use to freestyle. It’s a talent that I have and music is in me and I write songs  , I rap and I also compose . I’ve been shuffling music and my education then when I was in school.
YOU DO YORUBA RAP, WHY YORUBA RAP WHY NOT ENGLISH?
Right from my childhood , I had love for yoruba music and rap and its my culture. When I was growing up I watched more of India movies then later Nigeria English movies like Living in Bondage, Sakobi and the likes. I also watched Nigeria Yoruba movies I liked the incantation in it because it was more ore less like rapping . when I watch such movies then I like the way they say the incantations, I love the dance.
ARE  YOU TRYING TO STEP INTO THE SHOES OF THE LATE DAGRIN?
Wow!  No, I can’t step into his shoes  I am different from him. I am just me and I’ve been developing myself since when I was young. Though English was 60% and Yoruba wax 40% back then in school while I was still in secondary school, I’ve recorded so many tracks and because of where I grew up I attended show on the island where I perform and they spray me money so it is normal when people try to compare me with the late Dagrin (May his soul rest in peace) and it is also good when they do that because he has laid a good platform for other rap artistes. So Jhbyo is jhbyo and I have been doing my music way back. If people are saying that I’m trying to step into his shoes what will you say about lord of Ajasa, Ay in London because Ay in London
