INTERVIEW: Tiwa Savage, Seyi Shay Are Learning From Me – May7ven Reveals

Tiwa Savage is arguably the leading queen of pop music in Nigeria but before her rise to fame, there was May7ven.

The Nigerian UK-based singer says she is the pathfinder and pioneer of the new school female pop divas in Nigeria.

Currently in Nigeria for the promotion of her new single, ‘What Ya Feeling’ produced by A-list producer Tee-Y Mix, May7ven revealed in her new interview that the likes of Seyi Shay and Tiwa Savage were learning from her while all three lived in London years ago.

She says:

“I know when I started, I know why a lot of females are now here. The likes of Seyi Shay and Tiwa Savage were all with me in London when I did ‘Bo Aso Lara mi’, so I influenced majority of them to be doing what they are doing now. There always has to be a leader, someone who starts and creates things, and that’s how I see myself already. So the style I’m doing now, I guarantee you in another two years you’ll find another set of Tiwa Savage doing what I’m doing. I’ve always been an innovator and you can interview any of them, they’ll tell you the same thing so they maybe threatened that I’m around and not the other way round”.

About her little history with Tiwa, the singer explains that both of them used to sing in the same band as youngstars but admits that the “Eminado” singer had always had a strong passion for music since she was 11.

“Yea, we grew up together. She was in my younger sister’s class, I’m a year older than both of them” May7ven narrates.

“There was this competition we were part of, I was 12 years old at the time, and I managed the group and sang with them as well, we were five girls in the group and we came out joint winners with a male group. I managed the group till we were about 16. I have everything on film and one day I’ll possibly leak the videos but I remember Tiwa was always singing, out of all of us, she sang the most while I was more focused on singing and dancing at the same time, she’s always been passionate about music.”

ABJCM MUSIC: Dejhavu – Lovely

You will recognize Dejhavu as one half of former Bariga duo Kode and their hugely popular 2009 collaboration with the late great Dagrin titled “Where Dem Dey”. Highly rated upon their debut, the duo collaborated with the likes of Pope, Dokta Frabz, Spellz, Klever Jay and Indomix among others.

Shortly after releasing a debut album as part of Kode, Dejhavu stepped back from the music game to further education, and now with two Bachelor’s Degrees from Nigeria (University of Lagos) and Finland (Vaasa University of Applied Sciences) under his belt, Dejhavu returns with a brand new single titled “Lovely”, produced by Shabach and Frankeys.

“Lovely” is a smooth and captivating AfroPop record, which shows that DejHavu still possesses those heavenly vocals, compelling song-writing dexterities and a penchant for an infectious chorus. Written in appreciation of the strength and beauty of your leading lady, “Lovely” is sure to strike a beautiful chord, especially among female listeners and male listeners who appreciate a good woman!

Now based in London and signed to Team U Entertainment, Dejhavu is firmly poised to pick up exactly where he left us with Kode and continue his rise to the top of African music. It has been four years since his last record and even though have changed in that time, Dejhavu believes that good music will always prevail, and with the release of “Lovely”, he is firmly proving just that!

ABJCM NEWS: 1000 Clerics Storm Abuja To Reconcile Presid. Jonathan & Obasanjo

The report is according to Vanguard

Ahead of the 2015 general elections in the country, over 1000 Bishops and Pastors from the Pentecostal fold on Sunday stormed the Ecumenical Center Abuja to reconcile President Goodluck Jonathan and former President Olusegun Obasajo.

The Clerics who came from different parts of the country arrived late on Saturday while some of them from Imo State arrived early hours of Sunday and slept at the park as there were no officials of the organizers of the program.

But it was gathered that because of the absence of President Goodluck Jonathan who was away to Germany on a national official duty and that of the former President Obasanjo who was said to have been represented by his pastor the reconciliation prayer meeting could not precede.

There were divergent views on the invitation sent to the two leaders as some of the pastors claimed both President Jonathan and former President Obasanjo were formerly invited, some other members said that the President was not given formal invitation to attend but that he was aware of the meeting.

Some of the clerics told Vanguard that President Jonathan was represented at the prayer meeting by Venerable Obioma Onwuzurumba but that the members had wanted the two personalities to be present so that the reconciliation could be effective

In the absence of the main objective of the meeting which was the reconciliation, the Ministers of God had intensive prayers against the recent outbreak of the deadly Ebola Virus Disease, EVD, the insurgency in the North East occasioned by the Boko Haram sect and the abduction of Chibok girls in Borno State.

A Pastor who spoke to Vanguard on condition of anonymity said that there was also indiscriminate installation of Bishops and ordination of pastors at the occasion.

In an interview, one of the 100 pastors from Imo State that were stranded on arrival early hours of Sunday and founder and General Overseer of Light of God Mission, Mbaise, Imo State, Rev. Udechukwu Matthew Uka explained that the prayer meeting was to ensure a total reconciliation between President Jonathan and former President Obasanjo.

Rev. Uka said that the reconciliation of the two would bring a peaceful election in 2015 as well as unity to the country, stressing that the Men of God were concerned over the suspected strained relationship between two great leaders of the country.

According to him, “We came to Abuja to pray for the peace and unity of this nation and to make sure that the leaders of this nation are working in unison, especially we want to pray that God will unite the former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo with the present President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan.

“We know that they are leaders and when two of them are united, many souls, many part of the nation will be united, they are the head. The former President is aware of our coming, he is the grand patron of this network which is Master Seed Pentecostal and College of Bishops and Ministers network.

“We are almost 1000 in number organized by our national President Bishop David Emma Okoroafor Agu. The 1000 ministers are from different states of the federation. Many are from Rivers State, some from Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Abia State, Enugu, Anambra, Imo, Lagos , Edo, Delta and many other parts of the country.

He also said that President Jonathan was aware of their coming for the reconciliation meeting.

On while some of them slept at the park on arrival about 12 am on Sunday, he said, “The reason is that we came very late, our vehicle couldn’t meet up with time. Before we came in, our national organizers who should direct us where to pass the night have gone to their various homes, we came almost midnight that is why we were stranded.”

Also speaking Pastor Modestus Kelechi the General Overseer of Holy Ghost Intercessory Ministry with its headquarters in Mbutu, Aboh Mbaise in Imo State said that it was imperative that President Jonathan and former President Obasanjo should unite to give the nation direction.

Pastor Kelechi who is a notable prayer warrior said that God would not be happy to see the two men going across purposes, adding that animosity among the two could spell doom to the nation.

He said, “’They have to come together for the sake of this country.”’

NOLLYWOOD: Yoruba Actor, Soji Omo Banke In Hot Romance With Taye Taiwo’s Elder Sister

Here’s how City People reports their romance tale.

Soji Taiwo, aka Omo Banke is one of most sought-after Yoruba actors in the movie industry.   Though, he came into limelight a few years back, he has been able to carve a niche for himself, which is why he’s head and shoulders above many of his contemporaries.

He is not only a wave-making actor, who producers can’t do without, and an actor who many movie buffs are crazy about, Omobanke is cleaning out. He is among the very few new generation of Yoruba actors who live large.  He lives in a very comfortable home and drives a Range Rover ( He is the only Yoruba male actor who owns a Range Rover) Omo Banke as he’s commonly known as, has a lot going for him. He rolls with the big boys in town, and MCs classy events (he is a MC of repute).
 
However, the versatile actor, we gathered is having an affair with a Lagos big babe, Basirat. Basirat is the elder sister of Nigerian Soccer Star, Taye Taiwo. For those who have been wondering while the actor is always mentioning Taye Taiwo’s name, and wearing the former Super Eagles left full back’s jersey in his movies, he is very close to the footballer and his siblings. Entertainment weekly gathered that, they have been dating for a while, and they are deeply in love with each other.

Omobanke frequents her house at Egbeda and they are always seen together in this area. Basirat is someone who Taye Taiwo holds in high esteem amongst her siblings owing to this, he spoils her with expensive gifts.  It was learnt that, the lady played a big role in his life before he became a soccer star.  And right now, she plays a motherly role to the former Olympique Marseille player. She is said to be in charge of Taiwo’s many properties.  Basirat is a popular babe in Egbeda axis; she cruises around in exotic automobiles.
