Singer Baba Dee has sued for peace between estranged musicians, P-Square, urging the duo to reconcile as he ended the feud between Tubaba and Blackface.
Dare Fasasi made the call on Saturday during a tribute in honour of the late Sound Sultan. He told Paul and Peter Okoye to reconcile as a mark of respect to Sound Sultan whom he described as a man of peace who would have loved them to make peace.
“I beg you, I beg you in the name of your father and your mother, and Jude as well. I beg you guys, you all need to come together and bury this because the time is limited,” Baba Dee pleaded, noting that Sound Sultan introduced him to P-Square, and made him fall in love with their songs.
Paul and Peter Okoye – twin brothers – went their separate ways over some family and business issues.
On the night, Baba Dee also reminded Tubaba and Blackface, members of the defunct Plantashun Boiz, of how they started.
The group performed one of their hit songs in the memorial concert, leaving the audience stunned and craving for more.
Plantashun Boiz, a hip-hop group, rocked the Nigerian music scene in the 1990s. It consisted of 2face Idibia now 2Baba, Faze, and Blackface, and was formed during their student days at the Institute of Management and Technology (IMT) in Enugu State.
Music stars, Cynthia Morgan, Baba Dee and sensational female drummer, Ara are ready to release full bodies of music material.
Dancehall star, Cynthia Morgan in an exclusive interview with Entertainment News on Channels TV said her yet to be titled debut album will be released “before the end of the year (2015) or first quarter of next year (2016)”.
Although details of the album are hush-hush at the moment, the ‘German Juice’ crooner confirmed co-star, Burna Boy as well as music duo PSquare are guest artistes on the album and that she’s trying to give a 100%.
Also, singer Baba Dee, who released his last album (digital) titled Boom Box about two years ago, is ready to release a full album, featuring artistes including Burna Boy, Harrysong, Terry G and others.
Sensational drummer and singer, Ara, in an exclusive chat with EN confirmed she will be dropping her highly anticipated debut album after many years of being a performing artiste of international repute.
The singer, however, did not give a time frame for the release but the album which features Fuji star, Pasuma is almost ready.
One of Nigeria’s Kings of highlife music Ebenezer Obey Fabiyi has been appointed as the Chairman of the newly formed Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) Advisory Board.
“Alongside on the board are music icons that have made a formidable impact in the industry, Victor Uwaifo, Dan Maraya Jos, Onyeka Onwenu, Laolu Akins, Sunny Neji, Toju Ejueyitchie, Ben Ofoeze, Ossy Affason and Dayo Ogunyemi.
According to the newly appointed chairman of COSON Tony Okoroji, “Copyright administration is such a complex undertaking that requires all meaningful contributions.
“Since the board cannot accommodate more than the stipulated number of eleven members, the board has deemed it proper to set up an Advisory Council which will be made up of seasoned minds and achievers from within and outside the society; whom we believe have the right intellect to inject ideas that should help the board take COSON to our dream of being the Number one in Africa. I wish to state here that we are still building the Advisory Council as more hands will be invited to come on board and I believe in no time, members of COSON will be singing a new song.”
The association also added some of the young talented music icons as part of their executives such as R&B singer Banky W, Azeezat , Baba Dee, Fuji musician Adewale Ayuba and Audu Maikori.
One of the newly elected executives Azeezat expressed her appreciation and excitement, “This is a wonderful initiative, it gives the society an opportunity to benefit from the wealth of knowledge of people who have distinguished themselves in the music business in Nigeria, I am excited as I know this will mean well for all who have the progress of COSON at heart’,
