Tiwa savage shuts down allegations towards Ciara stealing her song

When Ciara released ‘Freak Me’, her Tekno-assisted single, all hell broke loose on Nigerian social media over alleged song theft and unapproved sampling of Tiwa Savage’s ‘Before Nko’.

But addressing the matter plainly for the first time, the Nigerian superstar says she had foreknowledge of the sampling.

Savage said her representatives spoke to Ciara’s camp, inferring that they reached an understanding on the usage of the song.

In an interview with Capital Xtra’s Tim Westwood, Savage described ‘Freak Me’ as a pleasant surprise.

She said: “It’s amazing. It’s an honour. I knew she was going to sample the record.

“Her people had spoken to my people but I didn’t hear the final product until it came out but it was a pleasant surprise. Big shout out to her.”

Savage also spoke about her upcoming collaboration with Coldplay, and how it came to be.

She said: “They have a record with Stargate and it kinda has like an Afrobeat influence in it and I already worked with Stargate on a couple of records, so they wanted a female vocal on it, so here I am.

“When I was in the studio with Chris Martin, he was so cool. I was so nervous. He made it so easy.”

The singer said her collaboration with Duncan Mighty, ‘Lova Lova’, is currently her favourite song, adding that “I knew it was a big record when I recorded it”.

The Afrobeats star also touched on the inequality suffered by women in the music industry, noting that it is not limited to Nigeria.

“I think it’s all over the world actually. I have heard other female acts from America, the UK talk about how hard it is,” Savage said.

She said songs by male artistes find quick acceptance on the radio as opposed to those recorded by female singers.

“I think it’s a lot easier to accept male artist’s songs,” the ‘All Over’ singer said. “On radio, it gets played quicker. Sometimes, I feel like some records when I have male artistes on it, is accepted a lot quicker.”

Emmy Awards 2018: ‘Game of Thrones’ gets a big win, and yes, there was a proposal

Peter Dinklage wins best supporting actor in a drama series for HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” which returned to the ceremony after being ineligible last year.

Dinklage, who also won the trophy in 2011 and 2015, thanked the show’s creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss before joking, “I cannot walk down the street anymore.”

The actor, who plays Tyrion Lannister on the fantasy series, also thanked his wife, whom he said he forgot to thank in a previous acceptance speech, and his co-star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, a fellow nominee.

Plus, Dinklage thanked “Game of Thrones” writer George R.R. Martin “for creating this darn thing.”

Glenn Weiss wins best directing for a variety special for ABC’s “The Oscars.” But his speech quickly became personal.

“I’m really grateful to be here. But it’s bittersweet,” he said, tearing up.

“The person that would be most proud at this moment would be my mom, and she passed away just two weeks ago.

Part of my heart is broken, and I don’t think it will ever be repaired. But she’s in me.”

Weiss added that his mother said to always hold onto sunshine. That’s when he shocked everyone by addressing his girlfriend.

“Jan, you are the sunshine in my life, and Mom was right, don’t ever let go of my sunshine,” he said.

“You know why I don’t like to call you my girlfriend? Because I want to call you my wife.”

She looked absolutely shocked. After gasping, she walked up to the stage, as he said, “I didn’t ask yet.”

“This is the ring that my dad put on my mom’s finger 67 years ago,” he told her. “Jan, I want to put this ring that my mom wore on your finger.”
He dropped to one knee, as the audience erupted in cheers.
“Will you marry me?”
She said yes.
After they shared a passionate kiss, he said, “Thank you to the Academy!”

Mulaney seemed stunned as he picked up the trophy — and apparently his wife didn’t think he had much of a shot, as she’s currently in New York and told him, “I just can’t fly across the country to watch you lose.”

Mulaney didn’t seem to mind: “I still think you made the right decision,” he told her from the stage.

Game of Thrones Season 8 trailer released: WINTER IS ALMOST HERE(Video)

The teaser for the upcoming season 8 of “Game of Thrones” have been released by HBO. TV Network, HBO have shared the first look of what to expect from the final season of the popular series, which will return to the screen in 2019.

The centrepiece series that parades intriguing characters like John Snow, Arya Stark, Sansa Stark, Daenerys Targaryen, Cersei Lannister, Tyrion Lannister and the fiery dragons ended with a grand finale in Season 7 that left fans anticipating for more.

The new season may have the least amount of episodes but it had the longest shooting schedule.

The new footage is buried among a lot of shots of season seven, including a clip of Gendry swinging an axe, Daenerys and Tyrion having a pensive moment, and some dragon fire, and shows Jon Snow back hugging Sansa Stark at their family home of Winterfell, while she gives someone out of shot a very shady side-eye look.

Even though the teaser lasted for only a couple of seconds but succeeded in pointing to certain things to expect when the series returns.

Firstly, Jon Snow is set to make a return to Winterfell, where he reunites with Sansa, who he left as steward of the North to go hunt the White Walkers.

The show is however not likely to return in the previously expected first quarter of 2019, even though filming has now finished with post-production underway, the show is now set to feature in the middle of the year. Click here Watch the trailer

Janet Jackson’s new song in Yoruba will blow your mind

The singer recently released a single titled Made for Now, featuring Daddy Yankee, in her attempt at a comeback – She infused Yoruba in the new track, perhaps to appeal to her African and Caribbean audience Janet Jackson was once a personality to be reckoned with in the music scene, especially in the 90s.

She was known for her strong voice and energetic performances especially in risqué outfits.

However, all that changed and she became conservative in her lifestyle after she got married to Qatari billionaire, Wissam Al Mana.

Their marriage has long been over and the pop icon has gone back to music.

The mother of one recently debuted her new single with Daddy Yankee, Made for Now, and it was performed at The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

The pop star infused the Yoruba language at the beginning of the song and the song included a lot of drumming and dancing.

At a point, she also infused the Shoki dance in her routine, perhaps for it to have an African feel and appeal to her Nigerian audience.

Janet was dressed in an Ankara outfit and her performers were also similarly dressed.

In recent times, Nigerian music has been making waves worldwide, with international acts featuring Nigerian artistes in their music.

Also, several international artistes seem to have suddenly taken an interest in Afrobeats and would like to be associated with it.

This might be why Janet Jackson infused Yoruba in her new track.

The track Made for Now has an African and Caribbean feel to it, it also sounds nothing like Afrobeat music Nigerians are used to, though it has been likened to an Afrobeat song by some of her audience.

It is obvious, however, that she made an attempt at an Afro-Caribbean sound, but not everyone might be convinced that she was successful at it.

Whether she made a good attempt at it or not is left for her audience to decide.

Richest actor in the world George Clooney gave 14 of his best friends $1m each

It pays to be pals with George Clooney… literally.

Little do we wonder how the hunky Hollywood actor emerged as the highest paid actor in the world.

Generosity really pays!
The A-list movie star’s best friend Rande Gerber revealed on a recent episode of MSNBC’s Headliners that back in 2013, George not only paid 14 of his closest friends’ taxes for the year, he gave them $1 million each. One. Million. Dollars.

As Gerber recalled, “There’s a group of guys that we call ‘The Boys.’ George had called me and ‘The Boys’ and said, ‘Hey, mark September 27, 2013 on your calendar. Everyone’s going to come to my house for dinner.”

When George’s dinner guests arrived they found black suitcases at each of their spots around a table, and the Suburbicon director shared a special message to the men who helped him early in his career.

Rande (who is married to Cindy Crawford and is a part-owner of Clooney’s Casamigos Tequila company) explained, “George begins to say, ‘Listen, I want you guys to know how much you’ve meant to me and how much you mean to me in my life.

I came to L.A., I slept on your couch. I’m so fortunate in my life to have all of you and I couldn’t be where I am today without all of you.’”

“‘So,’” Rande said Clooney shared, “‘it was really important to me that while we’re still all here together, that I give back. So I want you all to open your suitcases.’”

Inside was $1 million in $20 bills. As Gerber remembered it, “Every one of us—14 of us—got a million dollars.

Every single one of us. We’re in shock. Like, what is this? He goes, ‘I know we’ve all been through some hard times, some of you are still going through it.

You don’t have to worry about your kids, you don’t have to worry about, you know, school, you don’t have to worry about paying your mortgage.’”

“One was working at a bar in Texas at the airport, trying just to support his family,” he added.

“Rides a bicycle to work every day. I mean these are guys that took care of George and now he’s giving it all back.

And George said, ‘Not only that, I have paid everyone’s taxes so this million dollars is yours.”

And even when Rande, who is a successful entrepreneur, told George he could never accept the generous gesture, the actor had quite the response.

“I pull him aside and said, ‘I absolutely am not taking this million dollars,’” Gerber said.

“Immediately George goes, ‘I’m just going to make one announcement. If Rande doesn’t take the million dollars, nobody gets it.’” (For the record, Gerber complied but donated the hefty gift to charity.)

Gerber described this never-before-heard story as a testament to Clooney’s character, adding, “This is who George is.

That was September 27th, 2013. Now September 27th, 2014, he marries Amal. Now that’s good karma right there.”

Idris Elba Finally Reacts To The Rumours Of Him Playing The Next James Bond… He’s Not “James” So He Won’t “Bond”

Idris Elba has finally the put the rumours of him playing the next James Bond to sleep.

Two weeks ago, rumors began to circulate that James Bond producers were considering Elba for the role of 007, but that won’t be happening.

Speaking with Good Morning Britain at the premiere of his new movie Yardie in London, when asked: “Do you like it shaken or stirred?”

The 45-year-old star made viewers laugh when he replied: “Stir fried, actually.” As he tried to walk away, their reporter quickly added: “Are we talking to the next James Bond?” “No,” Elba replied.

This comes after the official James Bond Twitter account announced that Danny Boyle has resigned as the director and said: “Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli and Daniel Craig today announced that due to creative differences Danny Boyle has decided to no longer direct Bond 25.”

Blackface Files Lawsuit Against Wizkid and Banky W for Copyright Infringment

Blackface is dragging popular Nigerian singers, Wizkid and Banky W, to court for what he calls copyright infringement.

This is for the EME Records’ 2011 song, ‘ Slow Whine’ , which he says is a reproduction of his song, ‘Like the Way.’ He therefore demands over a Hundred Million Naira, off the suit.

He made this known in an Instagram post, where he posted legal documents from the case.

See what he wrote below:

I have remained quiet while my name has been dragged in the mud the past few years.

Some of Nigeria’s biggest artists have infringed on my copyrights but I always restricted myself to speaking out against this in the media.

Maybe because I always felt that music is an art and not really a business where you bring in lawyers and all that.

That’s why I couldn’t believe when I was sued for N50m by the same people who stole my intellectual property.

I have nothing personal against Wizkid & Banky, in fact I can say I groove to both their music, but the fact is that they stole my song in 2011 and there’s clear evidence to prove it. We’ll allow the Court to decide.

Well, guess the court is the best place to settle disputes. They will decide.
