Davido music label Davido Music Worldwide terminated their contract with young artiste Lil Frosh following allegations of abuse by his ex-girlfriend.
In a statement released on his verified Instagram page on Tuesday, October 6, he said, “In light of the recent allegations made against Mr Sanni Goriola Wasiu aka Lil Frosh, we would like to state that as a record label, domestic violence is not a trivial matter and we will never support or condone such behaviour,” it read in part.
Wasiu just got officially signed into DMW on the 24th of September after leaving his former label “Aloma Music Worldwide” for what he termed “irreconcilable differences” and this new contract has been terminated just 12 days later.
His ex-girlfriend, Gift Cammille who works as a model, and her manager Mike have said she missed a job because of the abuse.
The embattled rapper has not commented on both the domestic abuse accusations and the termination by his label.
The scoop about his participation in the movie was initially disclosed in September 2019 by comedian, Micheal Blankson who was with him at a concert in Atlanta.
“Davido told me he has a performance scene in the movie #ComingToAmerica2 congrats homie,” he tweeted.
It is unclear what role the ‘FEM’ hitmaker played in the movie.
The first part of the movie which was released in 1988 was directed by John Landis based on a story originally created by comedian and actor Eddie Murphy who played several characters and the main character in the picture.
Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, and Paul Bates will retain their roles from the movie.
Coming 2 America is being directed by Craig Brewer and stars Murphy as Akeem/Randy, Arsenio Hall as Semmi, Jermaine Fowler as Lavelle, Leslie Jones as Lavelle’s mother, Tracy Morgan as Reem, James Earl Jones as Jaffe Joffer, and Louie Anderson as Maurice. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on Dec. 18, 2020.
Wesley Snipes who plays a role in the sequel has revealed new details about the highly-anticipated flick to Coming to America, doubling down on co-star Eddie Murphy’s recent claim that the Coming 2 America is “funnier than the first one.”
“You’re going to have to wear a diaper!”, Snipes says.
This got Cynthia Morgan teary as she replied to Davido with crying emojis.
Also, popular OAP Dotun in his tweet said Morgan was a promising artist and she deserves a come back.
On the real I don’t understand why we all don’t see how wrong these things can turn out. Cynthia Morgan was a promising artiste. This girl was literally on fire. You took her name, took her growth. Why can’t you renegotiate? This has moved from just business to sheer wickedness
Big brother Naija star, Tacha in her reaction to the trends went down memory lane. She narrated how the German Juice crooner influenced her life with hit track ‘Dont Break My Heart,’ while she was in the University.
Firstly let me start off by saying that I’m currently in a state of SULLEN💔 Few years ago CYNTHIA MORGAN was UNSTOPPABLE her ART was UNIQUE🔥 Personally I first fell in love with “Don’t Break My Heart” back then in school, my 200lvl to be more precise.
Toke Makinwa in her reaction sued for peace between Cynthia Morgan and her former manager. “We just want music,” she tweeted.
It’s easier said than done, I may not have all the answers, it is a sad situation for both parties, hoping they both can work something out. I’m such a huge fan of Cynthia Morgan and I can’t deny the genius that Jude is too. We just want music 🎵
Nigerian music heavyweights, Davido, Tiwa Savage, and Mr. Eazi covered the May edition of the American magazine Billboard, where they discussed afrobeat and stereotypes in the music industry.
An ecstatic Davido (real name David Adeleke) tweeted, “The forces that unite us are intrinsic and greater than the superimposed influences that keep us apart.” – Africa Must Unite!.”
He then proceeded to share the photos of him alone on the cover of the magazine, another with Tiwa Savage shot by Lakin Ogunbanwo, and a solo shot of Mr Eazi shot by Seye Isikalu.
In their interview with the magazine, the trio covered a lot of grounds, starting with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their music, the afrobeat renaissance, and the stereotyping of African acts by the west.
Davido in his response said, “Man, it’s been crazy because my fiancée actually tested positive [for COVID-19 but has since recovered]. I was on tour in America, with six shows done and 19 sold-out shows left. We were in Denver sitting in my hotel room listening to the news. We looked at each other and said, ‘Yo, let’s just tell ourselves the truth: It’s about to be a wrap.’”
For Tiwa Savage, it was difficult wrapping her head around the situation in the beginning.
“I’ve been giving out food to people around my neighborhood. I can quarantine for a month or a couple of months, but some of these people don’t even have food for tomorrow.”
On his own part, Mr. Eazi said he has been using the lockdown to tighten some business knots.
“Musically, it’s been an eye-opener for me. During this lockdown, I’ve not recorded any new music. But I’m on Zoom calls almost the whole day working on my business or [talking] with one of my new artists, listening to records and setting up release plans.”
While Tiwa Savage attributed the phenomenal rise in afrobeats to social media, Davido said it is simply the unique flow of the music. Mr Eazi thought different: “Hey, I’m African, it’s great to be African, and we’re flaunting it.”
When asked about the stereotypes the west still had about Africa, Davido recalled an incident in Los Angeles where an interviewer asked him whether afrobeats is a phase. He called the question “ignorant,” and pointed out that “like everywhere else, there are good parts and bad parts in Africa. There are places even in America that look worse.”
Tiwa Savage’s anger is about the west’s belief that “Africans don’t speak English,” while Eazi thinks it can be linked to ignorance. He added that not all music that comes out of Africa is afrobeats, “…There are a lot of different tribes — the language and culture are as different as the rhythms and BPMs of the music. You can have a hit song in Nigeria, but it won’t be a hit in Ghana.”
