NOTABLES:

By matter of fact, it would be grossly erring to have
put these carefully selected names as part of the
above listed because their contributions in the
industry have been of particular value adding input
to it’s growth. Regardless, for some, it is out
sincere wish that the hands of time could be turned
back to the time when they ruled the streets and
frequency waves with their hits while others, we
pray consistency on their behalf.


1. Chuddy K: The Gaga Crazy crooner who once
defended allegations pertaining to his sexuality
previously had music stints with acapella groups,
one of which included Wande Coal as lead vocalist.
It was this prelude to his debut single released in
2011 that bagged him the award for Best Street Pop
at the 2012 Headies. Chuddy K has maintained
fame with other hits Shampoo, Brazilian Hair,
Rambo and Ima Bom to mention a few.


2. Rayce: Believe it, Rayce has been in the business
of music since 2002. His hit single Roll took a bit of
time to grow on fans before attaining the ‘smash’
status. Roll showed Rayce’s impressive music
intellect, a feat that bagged him a top spot on the
best singles of 2011 list compiled by top Nigerian
bloggers (us included). Since then he’s kept afloat
with Jack Sparrow, Tested Ok, Just Like That,
Igbedu, We Dem Boys and more recently,
Gbunmadun.


3. Weird MC: Ogun-native, Adesola Adesimbo
Idowu aka Weird MC gave Nigerian hip-hop a new
status with her Don Jazzy and JJC-produced single,
Ijoya off her second studio album, After Da Storm.
Sola never backed down on her dreams even when
her parents put forth heavy opposition to her
ambitions in the showbusiness.


4. Kel:Remember the chart-topping single, Waa
Wa Alright? Kelechi Ohia a.k.a Kel was the femcee
behind it. Doing an impressive 16bars on a track
wasn’t the only feat she achieved, the cataclysmic
reception her jam got, earned her a couple
nominations and awards for the year her song was
under review… and to think she only got involved
with rap for want of a hobby.

Popular singer, Azadus, tells JAYNE AUGOYE why he wants to return to the music scene soon Ever wondered what popular singer, Olalekan Fadeyi, popularly known as Azadus, has been up to these past years? You need not worry any longer as the veteran singer who is well known for hit songs, such as ‘Madam’, ‘Sodiyen’ and ‘U is the one’, is planning to return to the music scene in a big way with a new album in 2014. In an exclusive chat with E-Punch, the former member of the Hip hop group, Def O Clan, explains that his perceived silence or absence was due to some challenges he encountered a few years ago. “My career suffered a brief setback after I survived an armed robbery attack in the Festac area of Lagos in 2008. I had two gunshot wounds: one in my wrist and another in my right thigh. Luckily, it didn’t affect my gait. That was the same year I left Kennis Music to do my thing. I was with the records label for about seven years and we still do have a cordial relationship,” he says. Azadus’ attempts at reviving his music career saw him drop an album entitled, ‘Undialed’, in 2010. Not impressed with the marketing strategy, the artiste simply recalled the work from public domain. “Ever since, I have been trying my best to see how well I can do my thing,” he says. But this has yet to truly pay off, as the artiste has had some challenges, most of which are peculiar to the Nigerian entertainment industry. “As you now know, it is not about how good your music is, but how well you can promote it. And we are talking about some good money here. Although you will eventually recoup your money, getting the initial capital is rather tough. “I don’t know how to do 419, or meet any ‘Baba’ somewhere. Right now, I am looking for people who will be interested in doing business with us and not just help us. But, we are searching for people. Something big is coming up and I don’t want to let the cat out of the bag yet,” he teases. Despite the fact that his recent singles, ‘Ile Aye’ featuring Vector and Sound Sultan, and ‘See Trouble’ which also features Sound Sultan and 2face Idibia, are getting rave reviews, the self-styled musician’s musician is not happy about the current situation in the Nigerian music scene. If there is one incident that readily brings tears to his eyes, it is the death of his close friend and colleague, Father U-Turn. Recalling the moments they spent together, he says, “Father U Turn was like a brother to me. In fact, a month before he passed on, we were together and he told me he was just recovering from an illness. “This was after I inquired about his health and the way he looked. “I felt sad when he finally died. This is bad for my country because we do not
appreciate real service. Instead, we appreciate only buying and selling. Although this is an African problem, it is worse in Nigeria. “If Father U-Turn had lived the kind of life he wished for himself, he would not have died the way he did. There is also no reason why an OJB, for instance, should beg for money if the industry was the way it is actually meant to be.” Azadus says he is not prepared to give up music yet, though the industry has since grown in leaps and bounds since he recorded his last hit song. But armed with what he describes as his winning formula, it appears that he has a surprise for music fans. “There is an album in progress. I intend to drop a couple more videos and singles. I regularly stay up to beat and keep tabs and update my music with ongoing trends. For every ‘Kukere’, I try to do my own ‘Kukere’ type of music, ditto for ‘Atlanta’. “Unfortunately, I am yet to see anyone who has the courage to step into my shoes. I still do not know why that space is still very vacant. I think I am in a class of my own and nobody has been able to do my kind of music,” he says, laughing. Azadus thinks the Nigerian music industry is riddled with mediocrity. He says, “Our music industry is such, that when you have money, you sound like you are playing good music. The truth is that a lot of people are complaining. Yet this type of music continues to make waves everywhere. “Since mediocres have taken over the industry, there will be no such thing as good music to sell. Imagine someone repeating the same word over and over again in a song and he calls it music. Another guy plays the same kind of music, the whole world dances and jump into it saying it is content. “Endorsements are a wonderful development in the industry. We have all the money now, but we lack content. We are yet to see the content.” The singer waves away the rumour that he is broke. “This is plain idle talk. I do not understand why some people are saying that I am broke. How can you be broke and still take care of your family without begging anybody for assistance? A broke person is someone who will knock on your door and beg for money,” he says. The artiste, who has kept his marriage away from the prying eyes of the public for eight years, has just one word for his fans. “Be a little bit more patient, the ball will soon start rolling. Because I studied the rudiments of music, my own music will continue to be different from that of other musicians,” he pleads.

5. MARVELOUS BENJI

Music label, Kennis Music retains the credit for the
success of Benjamin Ukueja – a Delta State-born
reggae/dance hall crooner and producer otherwise
known as Marvelous Benji. Straight from the ghetto
streets of Ajegunle where he is based, Swo (Brand
New Dance) is the hit single that spurred on local
dance moves like ‘Swo’, ‘Konto’ and ‘Galala’ in the
early millennial era. But when Benjamin thought it
was time to move on up, he burned bridges with
his breakout label company and like the popular
saying goes, the rest is history.


This is one artiste I really like. I still have most of his songs on my phone. I hope he comes back soon.

4. W4

Even you can agree that this Nigerian superstar
kissed the hustlers’ ambition goodbye that very
moment Kontrol dropped. Wale Adepoju is a
native of Osun, Nigeria. Wale rose from doing
background vocals for celebrated artistes to
featuring them in musical collaborations. He stage
performances dote on his talent’s uniqueness and
soulful nature. W4 believes he can influence the
world positively with his brand of music only
through God-spiration thus, he’s not concerned
with rushing or forcing things in life because
eventually, what is meant to be will surely be.

Everyone depreciate and in every profession. Whether civil service, business sports or whatever though some have more shelve life than other.

Where is MC Hammer, Kriss Kross, Patra, Shaba Ranks and co they all went back despite worldwide fame.

In sport, where is Rivaldo or. Ronaldinho.

In politics where is Ibrahim Mantu, Odili or Donald Duke

Everyone has his time, the most important thing is what impact have you made to humanity to be always remembered in positive light.
