|Celebrities / “the Reason I Got Into Music Production” – Duncan Onyemuwa by sexyYBMB: 12:22pm On Mar 04|
Duncan Onyemuwa, known professionally as Duncan Daniels aka Dunkishrock is a singer, songwriter, music producer and entrepreneur. Speaking to our reporter recently he bared his mind on how and why he got into music production.
“The main reason I got into music production in the first place was because I was unable to find any producers at the time that could produce my type of genre so I decided to learn and produce them myself” he said. “I was so determined at that point, that I released a 12 track debut album titled “I Don Taya” which till today contains most of my personal favorite songs I have recorded” he told our reporter. He said he achieved this “Big Dream” only to realize He just scratched off the surface of his music career. “I was such a novice in the business aspect of music and it cost me a great deal in the way I handled the marketing of the album, to cut long story short. It did not do too well”.
Not long after that, he moved to Boston MA, to pursue a degree in music production at The Berklee College of Music. He struggled a bit musically, and his as my once unwavering confidence in his musical prowess was shaken by the disappointments of his first album. Just like so many of musicians today he decided to try and experiment with a more commercial sound in his bid to get himself the needed attention that from the afrobeats loving demographic. He lost himself, he could no longer write from the heart was gone. The passion and conviction in his delivery was false even though he gained a larger fan base and audience with songs like “Like This” featuring MI.

|Celebrities / HOTT! Davido Betrays Chioma, Welcomes 2nd Son With Fourth Baby Mama In London by sexyYBMB: 12:04pm On Jun 08, 2020|
Another source has simply confimed that the Nigerian vocalist, Davido has welcomed his second son from fourth baby mama in London.
The reports guarantee, Davido has quite recently undermined his life partner, Chioma with an Angolan make up craftsman who is situated in London.
GistMerchant reports that Larissa Yasmin Lorenco has been on Davido's live since 2017. The instagram blogger composed,
"There have been rumours floating around for a while now of Davido having another child. I'm here to confirm the gist and give details. Meet the newest baby mama Larissa Yasmin Lorenco A.K.A Larrisa London. A make up artist born and raised in Angola but moved to UK and have been in Davido's life since 2017. He sure knows how to shuffle these women at the same time. She went off social media when the rumour initially started and have only returned to posting again. She posted the above picture to make it deem like she is still pregnant so as to confuse the timeline meanwhile she already delivered a baby boy back in March and this is an old picture. This is her second child as she already has a daughter.
"The hookup that resulted in this pregnancy happened in NewYork Mid last year (Summer ‘19) when David was back and forth in US first for his second daughter’s birthday, then a brief Euro tour, back in US for Memorial weekend show, next in Nigeria for his first daughter’s hair product launch and then back in US in June for another show in Philadelphia and branched afterward in NY to give Larissa belle before moving on to ATL for the rest of his trip. Larissa was also with him at the Afrofest Portugal that happened back in August of 2019.
"Davido is currently denying the baby and blocked her so she has no access to him. He is trying to save face with the Chef Chi. For a while now things haven’t been rosy between them and they have been living apart but with this news now, trust them to come together and do photoshoot, pressing breast and sharing tongue to convince us that Chivido is still going to happen. My guess? Chivido is dead in the water. Fingers crossed.”
