Popular Nigerian singer, Patoranking, has opened up on why he delved into making and singing Reggae songs.

‘The Girls Pushed Me’ – Patoranking Talks Why He Started Singing Reggae
Alubarika singer, Patoranking has been able to garner a lot of acclaim with the style of music he does.
From Nigeria to South Africa and London, the singer is very much in demand for his infectious reggae tunes.
However, many will be surprised to know his reason for doing reggae in the first place.
In a chat with Sunday Scoop, he said, “One of the reasons I chose reggae even though it might sound funny is because of the girls. I remember back then in secondary school, if you did not know how to mime songs, you could not get the girls and I like standing out.
“I thought it would be wise for me to mime the songs that my colleagues won’t know. I listened to more reggae songs. Whenever I did that, the girls were always impressed. I listened to a lot of Bob Marley and Lucky Dube’s songs.”

How I Got Nicknamed Baddo – Rapper, Olamide Reveals as He Receives ‘The Sun Creative Personality of the Year’

Afro hip-hop superstar and rave of the moment, Olamide Baddo, has opened up on how he got his nickname as he wins ‘The Sun Creative Personality of the Year’ award in Lagos.
Multi-award winning Nigerian indegenous rapper of Yoruba decent, Olamide Adedeji popularly known as Olamide Baddo, has last Saturday at Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, won ‘The Sun Creative Personality of the Year award’ and described it as one of the greatest things to happen to his career.
The afro hip-hop superstar who won alongside Azubuike Chibuzo Nelson, also known as Phyno, said he would forever be grateful to the newspaper for the honour bestowed on him.
He was quoted as saying: “I feel very honoured, humbled and grateful to be recognised as The Sun Creative Personality of the Year. For someone like me coming from the ghetto, from nothing to something, to be recognised by an institution like The Sun, that also honours big politicians and big businessmen and women in the country; for me to be on the same platform with them, is a big deal. May God bless The Sun newspapers.
“Yes, this is the very first time that a major newspaper like The Sun would be giving me an award and I’m grateful. It goes a long way for a newspaper like The Sun to recognise me; you see my talent and you blow it out to the world, that for real, this guy is good; it goes a long way.
“I have been seeing The Sun right from when I was young; my daddy used to buy it. And for musicians like us to be recognised like this is not common.”
For a man who is familiar with The Sun, which column or pull out in the newspaper is his favourite? His response:“Most times I go to the business pages before anything else. I read the business pages first because I want to know what’s going in the business sector in our country. I’m more a businessman than a musician.”
Only recently, Olamide released his sixth studio album entitled, The Glory. But what actually inspired the 16-tracker and how is it doing in the music market? He explained: “The Glory is doing very well, great as expected. Big shout out to all the fans that have been supporting me. The album actually made it to number six on the Billboard chart. It’s the very first Nigerian album to make it to Top 10 of the Billboard chart, and you know it can only be God.
“And God is greater than everyone of us. Because some people refuse to acknowledge and give glory to God when they get to where they prayed for, they get carried away and all that. I am trying to be an exemption; I’m trying to let the ghetto kids know it is not because I’m skillful or whatever, it’s because of God’s grace.
“I want the ghetto kids to believe in God. If someone like me from the ghetto of Bariga (in Lagos) can make it with the support of God and good people that believe in me, I believe anyone can also achieve success. Yes, the album is called ‘The Glory’ because it’s high time I let people know that God has been great and wonderful in my life.”
Famously known as Baddo by his numerous fans across the country, many will wonder how Olamide came about the nickname. And is he such a ‘bad guy’ that he’s nicknamed ‘Baddo’?
“I got the nickname from the street. People have been calling me that name right from the time I was in school. But then, I am not a bad guy. It’s just a nickname,” the musician said with a boisterous laughter.

E! News: Having A Record Label Has Really Helped Me Says Simi

Love Don’t Care‘ crooner, Simi, bared it all in a new interview with Bold Magazine.
The talented singer/sound mixer, opened up on her music and more in this interview with Bold Magazine, saying having record label has really helped her as an artiste.
Read excerpts below:
O: What do you think makes your song mainstream and what what makes it alternative?
S: I don’t really like the word alternative because the kind of sound I use, the tempo of my music is mellow. It’s not a dance type of groove but it is still really really groovy. I think what makes my music more mainstream would be what I am singing about and then cos I use a lot of ‘Pidgin’. I’m not too for a lack of a better word too ‘Oyinbo’ I try to keep it as African as possible.
O: Speaking about Niche, in the news most recently there’s a lot of talk about black consciousness and black people coming together than ever before. Would you say that there’s a black renaissance going on and are you part of that said renaissance?
S: Well, I live in Africa; in Nigeria so it is not as pronounced as it is in the west as we are all black well predominantly black here. But I am very aware of what is going on and I try as much as possible to be a part of the conversation because it is very important. I feel like there should be an increase on how black people are valued. For me it is just not about black people, it is about women, it is about the society, if the status quo doesn’t not necessarily automatically benefit you, that’s my side. So I definitely like to be a part of the conversation.
O: Would you say that this reflects in your music or it has been reflective in your music?
S: Well I Have a song “Love don’t care” It focuses on tribalism. There’s a lot of tribes here. We have so many tribes in Nigeria, we have over 200 dialects. It’s ridiculous how we let things like that especially seeing that we are supposed to be more alike. We let it keep us way from benefiting from each other.
I once went for an interview and it was for Love don’t care. So the presenter asked if one should let tribal differences dictate who you love. There were a lot of people calling in; like Igbo people calling in and most weren’t calling to say they can’t marry from this tribe or that tribe They were calling to say they can’t marry from another Igbo group, Imagine. I didn’t even know there was such a thing. Like your own people and you’re like no this is not good enough for me.
O: Do you consciously create songs like Love don’t care because of the social message or it just depends on the the music you want to create, different song for different mood? Is there a method to the madness?
S: I think it depends. There are a lot of people that would write about conscious things. Take Fela as an example he was a very socially conscious musician, even if you’re laughing at his songs, he is writing about real stuff. I try to do that as well but I don’t just focus on conscious stuff, in fact I like to put a little humour in my songs even if I am talking about something serious. I want people to laugh and smile and say oh that’s ridiculous but it’s true. Personally with song writing, I am not usually stuck on one idea, I don’t have a formula, I don’t have one topic and I say this is what I must talk about. If in that moment I am feeling conscious I will write about it, I want to talk about love, happiness that is what I will write about. For me it depends on how i feel.
O: So looking at your career path, It is safe to say that you left the independent route behind and got a label deal. Do you think you would have as much impact if you were independent?
S: I tried the independent route but it’s not easy. For me, having a label has really helped me, even before I got signed, people will tell me oh yeah you are very talented but not a lot of people were hearing my music. So it definitely made all the difference. Even if it is not a record label, you have to have someone that would invest in your brand, or get a management company. You just need some kind of platform, it makes all the difference from you just sitting in your room and your neighbours being the only one to hear your music to picking up a mic and singing on a stage or hearing your music on the radio. Talent is the same, your platform is the difference.
O: Speaking about talent, you are also skilled in the art of mixing and mastering. Is that also part of your contract?
S: Mixing and mastering is my thing. My contract is just for singing. I am also a song writer but all of that is for Simi. My contract is solely for my singing.
O: So what other talents are you hiding that we haven’t heard about, what songs have you mixed and mastered that we didn’t know it was you back then?
S: I just started mixing and mastering for other people I think last year.
O: People like Who?
S: Dare Art Alade, I mixed 15 songs on Adekunle Gold’s album, I recently did something for Flavour… There are a bunch of others as well
O: There’s always been talk about a collaboration with Adekunle Gold that before you guys signed that you guys crafted each other’s sound together, is there any truth to that?
S: Actually when I first met Adekunle Gold, I never knew he had the King of Photoshop brand thing as I was solely into music as that is all I focus on. So I knew him as a singer and when we met he wanted us to do a song together. He really likes his RnB, blues and he has such a unique voice. I was like this is not you, you have to shine, other people can do this better than you so you need to find something you can do better than everybody else. So we started to dabble; do covers, I pushed him as much as I could to help him find his sound and in the process I was helping myself too.
O: Would you say you guys are still as close when it comes to crafting music?
S: Yeah we are, I mean like I said before, I mixed and mastered 15 on the tracks in his Gold album. I helped in terms of creative direction a little bit, a few back ups here and there so yeah we still are.
O: Your music seems a lot more feisty and intense and most times how you’re visually represented seems very 15 years old Arianna Grande sequence. Is it safe for us to say that there is a divide in what your music stands for and how you are visually represented sometimes?
S: Since I started mainstream music, the aspect that has required most work is the fashion. I am a really laid back kind of person when it comes to fashion, I am not a fashionista, I just like to be comfortable. The truth is there are so many people with opinions on this topic. There was a time I got really frustrated about it because everybody had their own ideas. I like sneakers, like a laid back look – jeans, tees, crops. I know that to some people I am not supposed to look 15, I think maybe it’s because that is my composure and that’s what I can keep up with.

O: There is this idea that for an artist to have like the impact that they want they need to “Blow” first 
S: Yeah true
O: What are your identifiers for success, what does it mean to blow for you?
S: If you are using the Nigerian definition it is when a lot of people know your music and your face. I remember when I first released my first official single ‘Tiff’  people knew the song but they didn’t know who I was. But when I released ‘Jamb question’, like that changed a little bit, people started recognising me and then when solider came out, like a lot of people – very elaborate people knew who I was. So my definition of “Blowing” or “To blow” is simply when people are more aware of you. That’s my definition.
O: So according to your definition, you have blown already?
S: To a certain extent yes. There’s different degrees to it as well. It’s just like someone saying are you a rich man. If you have a million dollars you are, if you have 2 billion you are also. In Nigerian being blown doesn’t make other artists less blown.
O: A lot of people are of the impression that if you really want to have that impact, that type of popularity and influence where your music is reaching a lot of people and perhaps changing lives you will have to gain international success, as most of the music and media we consume in Africa is from the west, so therefore if you can go to the source where the media comes from and be relevant then Africa doesn’t have a choice but to reckon with you. Do you agree?
S: Oh I completely disagree with that. Oyinbo people have talent. You can’t go there and start competing with something they have too much of already. It all depends on who your target audience is. For example, my first immediate target audience are Nigerians in Nigeria and then Nigerians in the UK and diaspora. In most of my tracks, I speak pidgin. Imagine if my song was being played on an American radio, how many Nigerians in Nigeria listen to American radio stations? I feel like people have to get it from your own place brother than get it from theirs. It has to come from somewhere, you have to have a home base. Look at Adele, Adele did not start pushing herself from America, it started from her hometown and America paid attention to her. even Drake, “Ojuelegba” was already a hit here before he jumped on it.
O: What Should we expect from you, what’s next on the agenda
S: Right now I am working on my album, I am just trying to get my collaborations together. There’s also an EP I have with FALZ. It’s coming out soon and a bunch of collaborations with other artists.

I Came From The Bottom And I Don’t Want To Go Back There Says Olamide

Arguably the biggest rapper to emanate from western Nigeria, Olamide oozes out a lot of inspiration for “boys in the hood”. He happens to be one of the most consistent Nigerian artistes out there, churning out albums regularly in the past five years.
Hardly anything is known or heard about Olamide’s love life except that he has a son. The “Pepper Dem” crooner gave a few inside on his “love life” and his motivation over the last couple of years.
Olamide had a rather hilarious thing to say about his love life.
“I’ve actually been in a relationship for about 17 years now. As a matter of fact, she’s the most important reason I am where I am today. Her name is music.”
When asked about his driving force, Baddoo didn’t hold back as he revealed what keeps him pushing and motivated.
“My major motivation comes from knowing that I came from the bottom, and I don’t want to go back there. I want to live a good life, and because of that, my working life is a relentless grind. I don’t want to go broke, and I don’t want anybody to look down on me. I’m still on top of my game because I don’t see myself as everything. I take advice from my mum, manager, and label mates, and they always help. They’re responsible for some of my ideas. Some things that people see and think is all about Baddo is actually their brainwork.”
Speaking further, he said, “I didn’t start out to be an average artiste, I wanted to stand out. Right now, I’m living my dreams. All I can say is that my life right now is a dream come true.”
These are excerpts from Olamide’s chat with Punch newspaper Sunday Scoop.

My Album Will Be The Biggest In Nigeria – Skales

Singer Skales, needs little or no introduction in and out of the music scene.
The ‘Temper‘ crooner, recently sat down for an interview with the Nigerian Tribune Newspaper, where he opened up on so many things to include his new album, relationship with Wizkid and international collaborations.
Read excerpts from the interview below:
Now that you seem to be back, what’s your plan to remain relevant?
Basically, I plan to put out more remarkable music; more smash hits my Naija fans would relatively love. I hope to achieve more greatness with this because frankly, that’s the only way I can stay relevant artiste.

From the look of things, you have successfully built your brand in such a way that the name Skales has remained very constant on the social space, how has it been?
It’s been a challenging journey, to be honest… there are bittersweet experiences; both negative and positive but at the end of the day, the fact that my fans pay attention and always have something to say about me in the social space is somewhat gratifying – it keeps me motivated.

You have also been quite silent but some people think it is down to your rebranding and your decision to focus more on music; what have you been up to lately?
I won’t say I’ve been quiet because I’ve actually been putting out new materials and presently, my single, ‘Temper’ is doing considerably well out there. I’m also working on my sophomore studio album, which is going to be bigger than anything the Nigerian music industry has ever seen or heard! I’ve put in a lot to ensure it’s not your average album; I’ve been working on it for over a year now, hence I believe it’s going to be mind-blowing; best believe! I’m also going on tour during the summer in the USA and Canada.

Music has paid off for you in a big way but would you say this momentum could be sustained for another 10 years, given the fact that most artistes these days don’t last a decade musically?
The good thing about music and I is that it’s more than just profit-making for me. I am really passionate about my craft – I don’t see myself quitting or retiring from what I love doing the most; music.

A lot is expected from you this year because of the way you ruled the airwaves in 2015 and a substantial part of 2016, what are your expectations of  the year?
I am quite confident I own this year because I am about to drop some bangers and one of the best albums in the country and Africa at large.

How would you rate your success in the industry now and do you really think you have pushed yourself enough?
Most definitely! In terms of success I have come a long way; from traveling around the world touring, to having very busy schedule; making money and signing huge endorsement deals with MTN. But truthfully, that’s only the tip of the iceberg because I’m just getting started!

It has been argued that when one reaches a certain level in the industry, it becomes practically impossible to release hit songs. Has this truly affected you?
First of all I will like to say that statement is really not true because only artiste that get too comfortable with what they have achieved so far end up being inconsistent and non-productive. But as long as you push yourself further and not be overly complacent your craft you will always remain relevant, hence making hits effortlessly.

You released a new song which featured Burna Boy and it has been banging everywhere. What’s the story behind the song?
Truth be told; the story behind the ‘Temper’ remix is quite an interesting one. I sent Burna the instrumental to record a verse and he changed the whole song. Also, the chemistry between him and I was instantaneous and strong; hence the success. We also had a direction for the song; as we intended it to be a street anthem which will resonate with everyone out there

Are we expecting an album from Skales this year?
Absolutely! My album is complete – presently, we are just adding finishing touches to it. So, to answer your question; yes an album is on the way and it promises to be classic!

Maybe an international collaboration is also on the cards? Or you don’t fancy such fad?
Yes, I got a couple of international collaborations which are on the way but they’re all on the album – I feel like that’s the easiest way to share our culture with other parts of the world. I really fancy the idea of international collaborations.
