Nigerian rapper, Vector Tha Viper teams up with award winning Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie in a second remix of his hit song, King Kong.
With a previous remix featuring fellow celebrated rap artists, Phyno and Reminisce, Vector like a king decided to further stun his fans with this new remix.
The new remix has an infusion of strong rhythmic rap flow from Sarkodie and also features Ugo, Project Fame season 7 finalist on the bass guitar.
“I decided to have two remixes for this song so as to delight my fans with different renderings of the same song”, said an excited Vector. “As you know, this is one of the few songs in Nigeria that two remixes have been done for and this ability to bring different artistes on board the same song goes to show the quality of the song.”
Nigerian rapper, Vector has said he has no plans to have collaborations with artistes outside Africa for now as he plans to tidy up first.
In a recent chat with Entertainment News on Channels Television, Vector commented on the recent increase in America/Nigeria music collaborations and said “I’ve had my moments with international collaborations in Jamaica, Miami, ATL and parts of New York. I’ve had that buzz and mention over there.
“However, Nigeria is big enough.
“At this point, I think I should tidy my house first,” he said and added that Nigeria and Africa come first.
Vector’s track, ‘King Kong’ has also been gaining a lot of traction with a remix featuring artistes including Reminisce, Sarkodie, Phyno on the way.
Also, Vector disclosed that his ‘Lafiaji’ album is on the way.
“The art with this album is pretty much going back to the place of birth. I was born on Lagos Island and I grew up around Lafiaji.
“It’s high time I made a track or album dedicated to the place I grew up, so it will have plenty Lafiaji kind of lifestyle.”
Asked about his relationship with music label YSG, Vector said: “The new movement is GRAP”, adding that “YSG is still very good” and “we would still work together”.
However, the Shiga rapper made it clear he was operating solo at the moment and that fans should expect Nigerian music that would compete internationally from him.
“This year, it’s just basically me bringing the world and Nigeria together with music,” he said, noting that Nigerian music can compete anywhere in the world whilst still being Nigerian.
The Sunday July 13 edition of Rubbin’ Minds on Channels Television fell on the eve of the show host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu’s birthday and it turned out the way he never planned.
Celebrated radio girl, Toolz, stormed the Channels Television studio midway into the live programme on the covert invitation of the producer when Ebuka had just announced that he was about to have his second guest.
As the show host, Ebuka had been accused of being mean to guests with his consistent probing, and it was time for him to have a feel of what he had put several celebrities through with Toolz bombarding him with daring questions about his career and private life and of course relationships with women.
Although his explanations would not save him from Toolz’ well planned payback, he explained why he took the daring path as he was tired of the regular interviews that celebrities grant where they answer the same set of questions. He believed it made more impact asking celebrities what people are really asking on the streets and on social media.
The good looking presenter who clocks 32 on July 14 confessed to being nervous as he was bewildered by the pleasant coup by his colleagues and the demand for honest answers to questions thrown at him.
He revealed his untold opinions about some of the celebrities he had interviewed; the best, the worst, the ones he underrated but wowed him and the ones who disappointed. From Tonto Dike, to Davido, Reminisce, Toke Makinwa, Omawunmi, and May-D, he had a thing to say about them all.
He also revealed that the one person he was dying to interview was the Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan. He stated that he felt the President had not been asked the kind of questions he should be asked and also the ones he would love to be asked.
Getting personal, Ebuka could not count the number of tattoos on his body but he disclosed where some of them are placed, what they mean and what next he would be putting up on his body, yes he loves tattoos that much.
He tried hard to put up an act he had been faced with from several guests when the issue of women came up but Toolz wouldn’t bend. Eventually, he admitted – probably for the first time in the media – having dated TV presenter, Lamide Akintobi.
Genevieve Nnaji, Rita Dominic, Omawunmi are among female celebrities Ebuka considered special and attractive but his special closeness to Rita Dominic would not be swept under the carpet by the ceremonial host but Ebuka maintained that they were just friends, adding, “If I wanted it to be more, it would have been more since.”
Then came the moment for Toolz’ set of mean questions just the way Ebuka dished them out to celebrities on the show and with his answers he got some of the crew members shaking their heads.
On his several confessions, Ebuka spoke about how he had managed to stay on the minds of Nigerians after breaking through via a reality TV show, considering how many of such persons have gone quiet over the years.
He also gave his own clarification between arrogance, self-confidence and self-worth, the last two being what describes him, contrary to what some people might think.
The few minutes of the exciting interview which forced Ebuka unto the hot seat on his own set might just be one of the most memorable birthday surprises Ebuka would ever experience. He took a deep breath as the show ended.
A popular Nigerian artiste, Reminisce, says making good beats for songs is more important in in Nigeria than lyrical content of songs.
On a Channels Television’s programme, Rubbin’ Minds, on Sunday, Reminisce said that the development was as a result of the fact that Nigerians do not listen to songs to see if the lyrics are okay or not.
“Nigerians don’t research to know things about an artist. They don’t even read about an artiste. All they want is to dance and listen to the beat of a song.
“And they are the ones we want to satisfy so we give them what they like,” he said.
The artiste, who studied Purchasing and Supply at the Kwara State Polytechnic, stressed the need for education, saying he had to go to school at a point in his life.
He said that the Nigerian music industry was changing and that it was for good.
Nigerian raving lyricist, Olamide, the self-acclaimed ‘Baddest Guy Ever Liveth’ has revealed attributes his fans do not know of him, including a gist about his hustle in the music industry, where he served time being a ‘studio rat’ for popular acts, Reminisce and 9ice.
In an exclusive interview with Channels Television, Olamide spoke about ‘the Olamide you don’t know’ who is a ‘quiet dude, the shy guy, the gentle guy who can be crazy sometimes.”
“The Olamide people know is just the Baddo,” he added.
“I grew up listening to the like of Reminisce and 9ice and watching them record at Cabasa Studio. I grew up around them. Whenever, they come around to the studio to record (and all that), I’ll be around.
I was that little kid. That studio rat that used to come around,” he said.
Olamide, who recently released two new videos paid respect to Reminisce, “his big brother.”
