It was with surprise, some months back when the news broke, that the “Sengemenge” duo of  KcPresh have gone separate ways with their musical career, that lasted over 10 years.
The separation brought about fresh singles- Okpekete, Now I Know, O’ Bad from Kcee and Presh now having great air plays.
We can tell you, that the separation of KcPresh is bringing about new developments to the entertainment industry and the general public, as we gathered from a reliable source, that Kingsley Okonkwo[Kcee] is now fishing in Nollywood waters. The movie is said to have a rich cast featuring Genevieve Nnaji, Mercy Johnson alongside top Nollywood actors and actresses. The movie is said to be about a twisted love story gone wrong, and all parties are getting ready to go on location a couple of weeks.
Kcee recently on his twitter handle,@KceeO has been tweeting about him experimenting with new things, in his career.
One can’t wait to see Kcee show another creative part of him although we seriously doubt that we will be entertained except having a good laugh at his acting attempt.

Stingomania's Ope Banwo gets death threats from Baba Nee and Trybson Dudukoko

Links to this post

The relationship between Stingomania records and two of their Artistes; Baba Nee (Omo Ghetto crooner) and Trybson Dudukoko ( the guy who played Dagrin in Ghetto Dreams )  has gone sour. The two artistes were signed to Stingomania label two years ago. 

Ope Banwo the producer of Ghetto Dreams,  announced this via his facebook page yesterday
 TIME TO TAKE UP THE CHALLENGE POSED BY BABA NEE AND TRYBSON DUDUKOKO!! People often wonder why Nigerian Entertainment industry is not having access to financing as it should. Yet, we have a culture where people sign contracts, get millions in support, publicity, promotion, production expenses and packaging etc and when they start making it, they spit in the face of the investor and thrash their contracts with impunity. Should we keep allowing this to continue simply becos we think its classy to take our loss and walk away? NO!! I chose NOT to be another victim of Nigerian artistes. THIS TIME WILL BE DIFFERENT. I take a PUBLIC STAND against the offensive actions by BABA NEE AND TRYBSON DUDUKOKO for their flagrant breach of contract after enjoying over N12million in investment from Stingomania and then claiming they want to walk away. My friends warned me this would happen and I assured them that when the time comes, I will confront the evil. So, rather than rising above the nonsence and walk away losing millions in the process, as some have suggested, I have chosen to engage them and help curb this industry menace

Government should ensure that the Victim is safe - Esther Ijewere Project Co-ordinator Walk Against Rape

Links to this post

Esther Enitan Ijewere is the Brain behind Rubies Ink and Walk against Rape initiative and it has been running for two years now. Rubies Ink  provides social enterprise solutions to the social challenges plaguing our world. They do this through advocacy, public relations, and other activities. Her Projects W.A.R ( Walk Against Rape) is an initiative created to lend a voice to victims of Rape in the society and also demand justice for them. Recently, I spoke with her about the ABSU 5 Gang Rape and what should be done about it.

What is your take about the ABSU 5 Gang rape that happened on August 17th ?
Its a serious matter and I feel the Government shouldn't treat it with levity, those boys should be made to face the law and prosecuted, also the safety of the victim is of utmost importance as well Young youths on the social media network Twitter were angry that a girl was raped by 5 guys in Abia state university.   And that was how everyone got to know such case happened in one of our Nigerian universities. Do you think it should take long before we know such cases happen in our time like this?

Young youths on the social media network Twitter were angry that a girl was raped by 5 guys in Abia state university.   And that was how everyone got to know such case happened in one of our Nigerian universities. Do you think it should take long before we know such cases happen in out time like this?
The power of the social media can't be undermined so also is the strong voice of the Nigerian youths, the culprits used the internet to expose their ugly act, they posed a dare to us and they got feed backs via same medium! Fear of  stigmatization is one of the major reasons why we hardly hear of such cases, people rarely report to the authorities and remain silent victims

Now the case is a national case  even the Minister of Youth and development is also involved in this case what step do you think they should take now?
Government should ensure that the victim is safe and also make the "Rapist" for committing such a crime, they should serve as "scape goats" to others like them who think they can rape or abuse a woman and get away with it.

Can we get to know you?

Sure you can my name is Olufemi  Oladipupo Adeyinka aka Capital F.E.M.I.  Born in Lagos my family is from Ogun State Abeokuta to be precise.   Had some of my early education between Nigeria and the States, until my dad finally decided to have me stay in the States and further my education.  I attended High school and College in the states and now am back home doing what I love to do Music. 

When did you start music?

It didn’t start for me at a very early age being a lover of music happened for me by chance I would say.  I started as a dancer more on the theatre side and caught the singing bug in my late years in high school.  I performed a few talent shows with my friends and that’s how a teacher of mine pulled me to the side and seriously told me that I have a gift and I should think of using it.  Didn’t take it seriously knowing my parents wouldn’t have it especially my father.  It kicked off when I was in my first year in college sang in a few groups then to writing songs and singing hooks for different artist and  then went solo from there and as you know the rest is still being written. 

You came into the country in 2009 , did you have your own plan before coming back?
I was working on my music and looking at what avenues I could get into before I came back home.  

 While growing up, who influenced you?
A lot of people did let me mention a few Steve Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Micheal Jackson, Jodeci, Donell Jones, Brain Mcnight, Joe and so much more.
