Mz Kiss vs Sharon Sonia, Who's Music is Better.
Mz Kiss

Mz Kiss or Sharon Sonia. That’s the question that hangs on the lips of every music enthusiast in Ebiraland. A competition that exists in perception and conflicting interest. Sometimes the contest takes a back seat, and it becomes a juxtaposition: Mz Kiss & Sharon Sonia. Side-by-side, mentioned in the same breath, and conjuring inherently the same, yet different mental imagery.
Like all pop culture rivalry that is generated by the media, this one truly exists only in the minds of fans, propagated by social media, and made real by the insistence of the artistes to ignore the conversations, or sometimes, to stylishly avoid the question during press interviews and talk shows. Why these rivalries come up is self-evident. The Nigerian music industry is male dominated, with very few women rolling in the big time. Omawumi, Sharon Sonia, Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade, and Mz Kiss kind of always come to my mind in mainstream music. An argument for Cynthia Moran can be made, but she is too niche to properly lay a claim to the pop soundscape. Omawumi and Waje are seen as too of a kind, with very little designs on the pop crown.

Mz Kiss
My comparison here isn't about ow successful tis two female artists are but how we enjoy their music and ow they deliver their flows, Mz Kiss is Yoruba local rapper quietly successful and recognize based on er record deal and her level of collaboration wile in the other hand Sharon Sonia is currently the queen of Afro Pop in Kogi State. I felt ,like writing this after I gave Dj ICE Sharon Sonia's track titled "Sunmobi (Come Closser)" and when he played it everyone fill the vibe and right after then he played Mz Kiss hit track titled "Wawu" then guys asked for replay of Sunmobi by Sharon Sonia, with the saying "She Dey Burst  Head" 
Sharon Sonia is still chasing her Kogi big bang. Her single Memi’ ft Landy failed to get the effect it deserved in the Nigeria hit music charts. That’s why she returned with ‘Owonla’, a fusion of Electronic Dance Music (EDM), but i don't think it is in vogue. In this uber-competitive space, to stay motionless, is to fall behind.

Sharon Sonia
Sharon Sonia
For numbers, Mz Kiss and Sharon Sonia have played in the same league within the past years, only Sharon Sonia Memi pulled nothing less than 75,357 downloads already on Ebiraland Media. Mz Kiss does have videos, on Youtube Which has pulled over all 2 million  views and also have featured top stars in Nigeria like Falz in Stupid and her Boss Illbliss, and also her music showing up on top sites in Nigeria which trends her song compare to Sharon Sonia who don't have any promotion parts from her album marketers around Kogi State

Mz Kiss and Sharon Sonia are currently defining female pop artistry on the continent, but the latter edges her out for international recognition and fame. In my own opinion Sharon Sonia has the baddest Party Jams still retains her status as the DJ best, but the growing influence of Mz Kiss  and her Afrocentric marketing and branding has achieved phenomenal results, the only issue is that Rap Music is underrated in Africa.

My one and only advice will be Sharon Sonia to step up her game and double her hustle i believe even without good record deal she can still step to the limelight because she got the talent with flows wey dey burst HEAD and she should never say she can't spend money on Bloggers to promote music Internet has music now.

Thanks for reading don't forget December 20th 2017, Eko Convention Center for Falz Experience Show, Red Carpet starting by 6pm, Shows start 8pm on the Dot. SEE YOU THERE.

In a press statement signed by the veteran actress, the talent hunt scheduled to commence on 17th August, 2017 across five notable districts of the state, will help to launch the acting career of the youths in mainstream Nollywood.
 
It would be recalled that the Actress had hinted on the 26th April, 2017 during the first ever Kogi Summit on Entertainments, Arts and Culture that she would be shooting a movie based on one of the prominent stories of legends in the state.
 
She also revealed that she would shop for talents from the various tribes in the state as a panacea to unite the people.
 
“This is my way of giving back to the state that made me who I am. I have been incredibly blessed to have played my little part in the revolution, that is Nollywood, and it is now time that my brothers and sisters in Kogi state get the same opportunity,” she added.
 
The search for Kogi state’s future Nollywood stars is billed to commence on August 17th at the Civic Center in Okehi; August 18th in Kabba.
 
The team will also be in Anyigba on the 19th at the Theater Arts Hall, Kogi State University; and Idah on the 20th, at the Idah Local Government hall. The search ends in Lokoja on August 20th, at Reverton.
 
Joining Mercy Johnson-Okojie on the judging panel are some of Nollywood’s most reputable acts such as Bimbo Akintola, Francis Duru, and Movie Director Frank Rajah.
 
The first prize winner will be taking home 250,000 naira and a lead role in the upcoming movie, while the first runner up will receive 150,000 naira and a key feature in the movie. The second runner up will win 100,000 naira and a feature in Inikpi.
 
‘Inikpi’ is a Kogi folklore that tells the story of an Igala Princess ‘Inikpi’, who out of love for her father and her people, gave her life to save the Igala land from total annihilation in the hands of their enemy, the Bini Kingdom.

Jagaban Beat Cause Fight Between GTBank MC And ABU Artists. - See Details.
The GTBank Born to Crea8 program, they are running in Nigeria Universities, its time for ABU and they were in ABU Main campus for their product advertisement (Free and Zero Student Account) with lots of fun ranging from Music, Dancing, Rap Battle and Raffle Draw.

On the 11th of July (Tuesday) was the second day of their arrival, after so much fun, it was time for Rap Battle when the Deejay played the popular Ycee Music Rap Beat (Jagaban) which all the artist were in disagreement with.



The objection was that this is Hausa land many of the artist don't like the Jagaban beat and they will not freestyle to the beat except the Deejay changed the beat. This provoked the MC that he asked the artists to vacate the stage and later told the artists their music is unprofessional.

The artists came back and tried to put a stop the program, but with the help of security officers and some of the GTBank officials they couldn't in time but later succeeded, at the end of the day they stopped the event and got a microphone to talk to the crowd: they said, GTBank has disrespect them (Artists) and the whole ABU for telling them their music is unprofessional. After paying a lot of money in the studio to produce music, use the same music to entertain people for free, while they (GTBank) are promoting their business and all they could do is to disrespect them so because of this they are not going to perform for the rest of the days GTBank are going to be in the school. Also they said GTBank MC did it because they were Hausa people that if it is in Lagos they can't try this, because of bunch of touts.

They told the GTBank officials that no one will turn up for their program on Thursday, one of the officials replied them that if the ABU artists did not perform they are going to bring their own artists.

After all the long arguments the ABU artists now announce that no artist will perform on stage again for GTBank not even the MCs will be able to step on stage and if any one should try it, they will injure such person, beat and sabotage all their instruments by casting stone on them...

 

We don't know what is going to happen on the 12th July, 2017 because the security officers has not dropped their comment on the issue on ground.. but i will update you later sha.

Kogi News: Kogi state emerges overall winner at Abuja Carnival
 (Hector Retamal, AFP)
The Abuja  Carnival which started on December 3 has come to a close, with Kogi State emerging as the overall winner.

Kogi won a total of six trophies and six plaques under different categories.

The closing ceremony   started with a processional display by participants from the old parade ground in Abuja, through Ahmadu Bello way to the Eagle’s Square.

Participants demonstrated enthusiasm in their bid to win laurels for their respective states.
22 states took part in the carnival.

 Biodun Abe, the Artistic Director, Federal Ministry of Information and Culture and Chairman of the 2016 carnival committee said many states did not participate due to paucity of fund.

He added that “many states were  unable to come because they couldn’t access fund.Lagos State was able to make it to Abuja today (Dec. 6) so they can be part of the closing ceremony. That shows that their commitment to the national agenda is not questionable. We are happy that the event was a huge success and hopeful that next year will be better,’’ Abe said.

Other states which emerged first in other categories include Nasarawa, Bauchi, Abia, Katsina, Gombe, Ogun, Bayelsa and two secondary schools in Abuja.

However, Mrs Payeboye Festus-Lukoh, the Bayelsa State Dance Director, Ministry of culture and Tourism, said that the award for the children fiesta should have gone to  Bayelsa.
According to her, Bayelsa was the only state that had children in their contingent.

 african-arts-and-crafts-expo
At the closing ceremony of the ninth edition of the African Arts and Crafts Expo (AFAC) on Tuesday, Kogi, Anambra and Gombe were among states that emerged winners in various categories of the event.

Kogi State which had a unique display of artifacts and jewelries made from cassava paste, won AFAC’s highest award, as the ‘Most Enterprising.’

Anambra State won the award for Ornaments and Gombe state, best in Calabash designs. Other winners were Niger which had the best brass works, Plateau for the best metal works.

Ogun was the best in textile, Bauchi state was the best in wood works, Katsina State, best in leather work design while Lagos and Kano States had a tire as the most innovative in packaging,
In his remark, Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed called on the private sector to increase efforts towards exploring the opportunity for investment inherent in Nigeria’s arts and crafts industry.

Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Mrs. Ayotunde Adesugba, who was represented the minister said foreign participation in the expo offers Nigeria the opportunity to draw other African countries to itself and give them a hand of friendship.

Mohammed said this is important to position Nigeria within the continent adding that it would promote regional unity and integration in line with the African Union Charter as the expo had given Nigeria a glimpse into the huge potential of culture and tourism products it has.

The minister who commended the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) for a job well done in organising the 2016 Expo, irrespective of the economic recession, said: “This sector has a great future and is emerging as the most prosperous sector in the world.

“If culture and tourism products in Nigeria were well packaged, it would trigger the much needed socio-economic development and attract additional revenue to individuals, communities and government at all levels.”

NCAC Director-General, Mrs Dayo Keshi, was happy AFAC ended as a huge success.
She said: “I am happy with success the Expo has made and the quality of the products displayed.
“The fair is one regional platform that has great prospects in transforming the Nigerian economy in particular and that of the African region in general.

“The experiences shared at the fiesta by the participants should not be lost. The value and lessons gained should be used to reposition the industry in a manner that can transform it into a viable one.
“I am very optimistic that if the sector is appropriately developed, it could contribute significantly to the economic development of the country,” Keshi said.

Why Olamide May Remain A Local Artiste For Long
 Olamide_Live_In_Concert

Ybnl Boss and Versatile Music artiste, Olamide aka Badoo is one of the most respected and recognized artiste in the Country…
His versatility to rap and sing and also fit into different genres of music from trap to reggae to fuji and many more has distinguished from The crop of talented artistes in Nigeria today..
This brings one to the reason why the artiste has not been duly recognized internationally and outside Nigeria alongside his peers like Davido and Wizkid..
Why is Olamide name lacking in most international awards and the talented artiste not getting deserved attention from the outside World..
Note – Doing indigenous music is not an excuse for lack of intl recognition. 9ice was invited to nelson mandela and MOB0 and Yousuf won a grammy with his local songs.. So doing local or indigenous song is never an excuse..
1) Quantity Over Quality – Olamide has made quantity is main goal..Flood the scene with songs and songs till you reach a point of equilibrum and then start to decline…
Olamide has failed to allow the people thirst for his songs and his releases are not up to expectations too…
It gets to a point listeners are no longer gingered to listen to what the artist will say as artist becomes monotous and repititive.
The rapper is even gearing up to release a sixth studio album.
2) Branding – Branding is also very much …. The Kind of brand Olamide potrays is of the not too internationally minded artist. He hardly dresses corporate and potray his versatility in his brand..
He has even gone ahead to Brand himself a Local Rapper. This type of image projected is the way he is addressed..
He has even refused to meet up with more influential managers and more serious minded and music experts ….. The lack of Expertise on the side of the management and consisting of influential managers does bear its mark.
3) Appeal – While deviation from indigenous music is not the point. Appeal is very paramount….. Olamide style is not appealing to the outside world.. Sometimes balancing works.. I wonder if Hausas listen to olamide songs ? But i bet more listen to 9ice ? Why
A little of more mature songs and english lyrics might do the trick….Do something appealing to every one and yet dont forget the minority. You dont waste international features with Wale on songs like papilo you go make us proud….
Give them what they love.. Trap,pop. Feature more of their artistes and seek for international features….
Olamide is a Legend and will remain one… However , breaking into the international market Like Wizkid is not an easy job……
Olamide has too much talent than to be labelled a local rapper… We want to see him topping the billboard chart and copping his own BET award soon too… Enough of the Headies and NEA awards.

I Have Never Cheated On My Husband” – Tiwa Savage (Watch & Download Full Video)
 Tiwa-Savage-crying
Speaking exclusively with Pulse TV following her husband’s accusations yesterday, the singer said
“I have never cheated on my husband…not with Don Jazzy, not with Dr Sid, not with 2face..and I am willing to take a lie detector testI have never cheated on my husband.
Not with Don Jazzy, Dr Sid, 2face Idibia or anybody. I have never cheated on my husband, and Tunji knows this. He knows that in his heart.
(She breaks down in tears) Sometimes in the studio, one of the things that Don Jazzy and some of my other label mates say is that I am really good with interviews, with being diplomatic and knowing how to carry myself with difficult situations.
This hurts. I have seen comments of what people are saying about me. It is not true.”
