“I Don’t Show Off My Wealth On Social Media” – Wizkid
In the exact words of Starboy Wizkid, he faults the claims that he takes on social media as a means to showing off his wealth.
“I don’t show off my wealth on the social media. Most of the things I have acquired in life, I never had them before I started hustling. So, now that I have them, I need to show people that these are the things I have gotten from my hustle. When I started, I wasn’t wearing gold necklaces and wrist watches. So, when I buy these pieces of jewellery, I display them for my fans to get them motivated,” he told Matinee in a recent chat.

They told me there is high demand outside after releasing my singles “Story For The gods” and “Awon Goons Mi” and they told me to come up with something and it was ready in like one week” the YBNL boss said.

Banky W Is Sad That He Wasn’t Featured On MI’s New Album
After the long wait for MI’s third studio album which took well over three years to come by, it was officially released some two days ago and amassing as much as 25 features on the album. Sadly, it didn’t include afro R&B turned rap crooner, Banky W.
In baring his support for Mr Incredible, he shared a photo with the caption ‘Bigups to my favourite rapper on the continent, @mi_abaga on the release of his album. Thank u for continuing to inspire me. Sad that I didn’t get to be on the album, but proud of U, inspired by ur work and wishing u nothing but the best always. Yall make sure u cop this classic.’
Maybe Banky deserved a feature especially since this his new dispensation of “I Am Not Even A Rapper Though”. Regardless, we can’t deny that their collabos in the past have been worth the effort.
Reminisce’s Third Studio Album: Baba Hafusa?
Indigenous language rapper, Reminisce is gearing up for the release of his 3rd studio album and has adopted a rather strange title ‘Baba Hafusa’ for the album. The rapper, whose real name is Remilekun Khalid Safaru, announced the strange title for the forthcoming album via twitter, saying the album will drop in February 2015.
According to the rapper, ‘Baba Hafusa’ is in part a way of paying tribute to his first daughter, who is named Hafusa. Baba Hafusa, is simply translated as ‘Hafusa’s father’ in English, and the rapper widely known as Alaga Ibile, has chosen that title for the simple fact that people started regarding him as a father since the birth of his first daughter. The rapper, who is a proud father of two daughters with his baby mama, is widely known by friends, associates and in his hood as Baba Hafusa. His first daughter, Hafusa Safaru is a 4 year-old while his second daughter, Fatimah Safaru is less than a year old.
