Tuface Joshua???

Newly hooked Innocent Ujah Idibia popularly called tuface turned all spiritual in Ibadan while performing on the Star Trek stage on May 25, 2012.

The concert held at Adamasingba Stadium.

While thrilling the audience the singer went into a trance of sorts, praying and prophesying and speaking in tongues, telling his fans ’we shall be blessed‘, ‘I see a greater future‘.  ’Receive it‘, he told them, filling his set with motivation and inspiration.

After his touching session, he then used his songs to arouse his audience’s spirit, calling for solidarity actions towards the present situation in the country. ‘For instance’ and  ’One love’ were his favourite songs of the night as he boldly modified the lyrics, inserting conspicuous political messages that spoke directly to Government officials.

The crowd watched, stunned by the singer’s words.

At the end of Idibia’s performance, the audience could not but remain standing for minutes; and it took many sometime, before regaining their ‘consciousness’.

MAVIN VS Def Jam

We have all heard different stories of why the dynamic duo of D’banj and Don Jazzy had to go separate paths, but what’s the real story? Nobody knows what really happened but it’s obvious that everyone think D’banj was wrong and blah blah blah. I even remember a friend saying that D’banj made the biggest mistake of his life, well think again. D’banj’s is officially the president of Def Jam Africa.
It was reported that D’banj has signed David ‘Davido’ Adeleke to his new label, Def Jam Africa. It is the African arm of Island Def Jam which is under parent company Universal Music Group, home to some of the biggest superstars on the planet. According to NET, the signing took place on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at the 19-year old’s house in Lekki after a five-man meeting involving D’banj , his manager Abisagboola Bankulli’ Oluseun, Davido, his manager Asa Asika and father Deji Adeleke. D’banj is interested in signing rave of the moment act, Davido to the imprint he would be launching soon following split from Don Jazzy and would also have D’banj’s brother, Kay Switch on the roster. An official statement or briefing will be announced soon.
