INTERVIEW: I Am The King Of R&B, Not Banky W – Darey Art-Alade

Nigerian superstar singer and CEO Soul Musik, Darey Art Alade In a recent interview with Encomium magazine, Darey revealed his thoughts that he is the king of RnB music in Nigeria and not EME Banky W. When asked if he feels any competition between himself and Banky W knowing that they are both called Nigeria’s king of RnB, Darey replied by saying;

“There is only one king of RnB. I have never heard anybody being called king of RnB except me.
I have never heard anybody call him (Banky W) king of RnB except if you think he is one. But the truth is, there is only one king, and you know who the king is. If you doubt it, my new material will settle the scores. Although it has taken sometime, I am very happy the work is coming out soon”
he told the magazine.

Darey who owns a recording company, Soul Musik with talented artistes signed on it (Zaina & Mo Eazy). He also spoke on the increased rate of artiste/management face off and revealed plans of acquiring a radio station. On artiste/management problems encountered in the industry, Darey said;

“The truth of the matter is everybody has a role to play and they have a portion of the blame. The label invests something, I don’t want to say much. For every investment you want to make a return. This is where the artiste doesn’t understand. In the beginning, they gave you a house, a car, and you think you are talented, and come to think of it, you don’t even have anything in the market. Whatever they gave you was based on potential, the initial agreement that if I give you this, you will give me that in return. Some artistes don’t have agreement, everything is sealed at a bar. As you drink, you signed without realizing what you are signing. Some of them are illiterates, some pretend to know what the business is all about, but they don’t. Some of them get carried away by the glitz and glamour of it, signed without knowing what the agreement stipulates. When they default, they start blaming the label, saying all sorts of things. But most of us don’t find out what was the agreement before going to the press and write. On the other side, the label may have been obligated to do certain things but they did not do it and the artiste will complain. These are the issues” he said.

On how to resolve these issues, Darey said;

“I think both sides should have respect for agreement. There shouldn’t be issues if both sides respect agreement they made. For instance, when I left Questionmark, nobody heard that I fought anybody till tomorrow. Yes we had disagreement, it wasn’t a rosy ending but till date they are still my friends, we work together. So maturity is needed to handle such situation”.

Darey also plans to own a radio station.

“I will love to own a radio station. I have already started making inquiries and plans on that feasibility. I am a radio person, I have worked on radio, and it was really fun. Since then I felt it is good if I can achieve this by running a radio station. After all, it will provide jobs for people, encourage creativity and improve entertainment. I don’t know the format of the station yet but let me get the license first” he said.

NEWS: Afenifere, ACF, CAN, Others Mourn Victims Of Nyanya Motor Park

There was outrage on Tuesday over Monday’s bomb blast that killed, at least, 89 people at Nyanya Motor Park, Abuja.

Prominent Nigerians and groups, including the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor; the Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, and its northern counterpart, the Arewa Consultative Forum, described the attack as inhuman.

Oritsejafor, in a statement, commended security agencies for their efforts to combat the Boko Haram Islamic sect.

He, however, said that the fifth columnists among them should be fished out and dismissed.

The CAN President also sympathised with the families of those who lost their lives, saying “God will not forsake them.”

He said, “As far as I am concerned, the perpetrators are not human beings and in my own opinion, when they finally die, their corpses should be given to pigs because they are on the same level with pigs.”

Also,  Afenifere, in a statement on Tuesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Yinka Odumakin, condemned the bomb explosion.

Odumakin described it “a renewed widening of terror strikes in the country.”

He blamed it on the irresponsibility of the elite and politicians, who gave  “covert support for Boko Haram.”

Afenifere spokesman said that the attack was a continuation of the orgy of orchestrated violence in the northern part of Nigeria.

He said, “We cannot continue to pretend that our security agencies do not have a faint idea of the enablers and sponsors of terror in the land.

“The President at some point hinted that the terror machine had infiltrated critical sectors of government, while the Gaji Galmatiri report has also identified some elements that are linked with the gestation of the blood-letting terror group.”

Odumakin condemned the attitude that suggested that sections of the political elite  expressed covert support for Boko Haram because of the short-sighted view that the reign of terror would aid their desires to get political power.

On its part, the ACF, in a statement in Kaduna by its National Publicity Secretary of the organization, Alhaji Muhammad, described the attack as a ‘national calamity.’

The group called on the Federal Government to tackle the menace of terrorism in the country.

The forum expressed concern that even the emergency rule in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states could not stop terrorism in the country.

The northern group, therefore, urged the government to decisively use all legitimate means and security apparatus to stop the insurgency that was gradually destroying the corporate existence of Nigeria as a nation.

The forum also stressed the need of synergy between security operatives and the community for intelligence gathering as a way of combating the menace.

The ACF said, “The bomb blast that occurred in Nyanya town at the outskirts of Abuja FCT on Monday morning that killed hundred innocent people and injured many was a national calamity, a disservice to humanity and a great shock to the Nation.

“In the last six years, Nigeria has experienced many cases of security challenges like bomb blast, insurgency and gunmen attacks, communal and religious clashes that have culminated into huge loss of lives and destruction of property worth millions of Naira.

“The present insecurity situation in the country, especially in the Northern region, has placed our people in a state of hopelessness and helplessness and crippled the socioeconomic activities of the region.”

It noted that attacks   by militants had become a daily affair with colossal loss of lives and property.

Also, the Northern States Governors’ Forum, on Tuesday, condemned the attack.

They said there was no basis for what the perpetrators did, adding that the loss of innocent lives, due to the explosion, was regrettable.

Chairman of the forum and Governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu, expressed the forum’s deepest condolences to the families of the victims.

He said no grievance can justify such a dastardly act against defenceless citizens.

In a statement signed by Governor Aliyu’s Chief Press Secretary, Danladi Ndayebo, the forum called for vigilance, emphasising that the issue of security should not be left to security agents alone.

“The issue of security should not be left to government alone. All hands must be on deck to stop the activities of terrorists, which have left hundreds of innocent Nigerians either dead or wounded,” the statement said.

NEWS: UK NGO Blasts Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala For Protecting Corruption In Cabinet, Calls On Her To Resign If She Fears Colleagues

According to a report by the SaharaReporters, The Corner House, a United Kingdom non-governmental organization, has urged Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Nigeria’s Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister, to resign her appointment if she finds herself unable to carry out her duties without fear or favour.

The call is contained in an explosive letter dated April 12, and signed by Nicholas Hildyard, a Co-Director of The Corner House.  In it, the group expressed the position that the Minister should simply have declared that she was afraid of the reactions of her cabinet colleagues should she take the appropriate action demanded of her office.

Mr. Hildyard was writing in response to the Minister’s response to the NGO’s third letter requesting her intervention to secure for Nigeria some funds being held by UK courts arising from the controversial sale of OPL 245 oil field by Malabu Oil and Gas to Shell and Eni.

To the Minister’s claim that the group’s request was made at unfeasibly short notice since a ruling on the case that had led to the funds being held by the UK courts was imminent, he reminded her that  The Corner House first made its request to her in May 2013, to be followed by a second request in September.

“You have therefore had almost a year to act and any suggestion to the contrary is simply risible,” he said.

“You also suggest that it was up to us to take action i n the courts to secure the funds. If this is indeed your position, we are gobsmacked,” he stated.  

“Non-governmental Organizations are not part of government and cannot intervene to secure funds that belong to governments.  They can (as we have done) alert government officials to their duty to act in a case such as this, but they cannot initiate such action. You are the Minister responsible, in your own words, for getting ‘any and all money that belongs to the Federation Account and to root out any fraud that may be there.’  And it was therefore for you to use the powers vested in you by the Nigerian people to secure the funds on their behalf. Instead, you chose not to act.”

The Corner House then told the Minister she should simply have confessed she was afraid of her cabinet colleagues, pointing out that her attitude stands in sharp contrast to the commendable actions of ousted Central Bank Governor Lamido Sanusi who fearlessly raised concerns about the non-repatriation of funds to the Federation Account.  

“We are aware that it has been alleged in a UK court that the Attorney General has a corrupt interest in OPL 245 and that the deal is now subject to police investigations in Nigeria and internationally. But Ministers are obliged to carry out their duties without fear or favour.  Where this is not possible, the option is always open to resign; indeed remaining in post arguably only serves to reinforce what must be challenged.”

An interesting element of Mr. Hildyard’s letter relates to Dotun Oloko, a colleague of his at The Corner House about whom Mrs. Okonjo-Iweala apparently made some unflattering remarks.  

In an open letter to the Minister on March 27, 2014, entitled “It Is Too Late,” Mr. Oloko had alleged that Mrs. Okonjo-Iweala had referred to him as “scurrilous” and “underhanded” for his efforts concerning OPL 245, saying he had tried to make use of an online journal she described as “a disreputable, corrupt and fraudulent online paper to make uninformed remarks about [her] and level false allegations.”

“I can assure you that we shall be providing a substantive response to your letter in due course and it is too late to embellish your blighted veneer,” Mr. Oloko shot back.  “The days when corrupt public officials like you, can stand up and say whatever they like in the misguided belief that Nigerians and the wider public will just lap it all up like they used to are coming to an end.”

Two months earlier, on January 7, against the background of the grievous allegations made by in a famous open letter by Nigeria’s former President, Olusegun Obasanjo to President Goodluck Jonathan, he had written another letter to the Minister entitled “Before It Is Too Late.”  In it, Mr. Oloko recalled that during an exchange of correspondence with Mrs. Okonjo-Iweala, she had expressed some views and opinions he believed should be made public in the wake of that dispute.

“I must therefore call on you to do your duty to God and our country and act on those views and opinions, before it is too late,” he pleaded.

In the strongly-worded letter, Mr. Hildyard alluded to that background, but declined to engage with the Minister about what he called the “unsubstantiated and frankly absurd assertions you make against our colleague Dotun Oloko (whom you single out for a particularly  ill-formed ad hominem attack), save to say that his integrity needs no defence.”

All you Naija celebrity men know you can have sex (plenty of it sef) without getting any woman pregnant, right? Olamide has reportedly joined the growing list of celebs having kids outside marriage as his long-time girlfriend, Adebukunmi Aisha Suleiman, is said to be expecting a baby.

Bukunmi is the same girl he flaunts on his instagram page (though he recently deleted most of her pics from his page) and calls her the ‘love of his life’ and ‘boo from day one’. Congrats to them.
