Happy July 4th, guys!
Here are the biggest stories from yesterday and others that unraveled while you slept – and are still buzzing on Entertainment Roundup this morning.
Look who Akon just signed on to his record label…
The music producer responsible for some of the biggest hits in Wizkid and Olamide‘s years as upcoming stars has gotten himself a good deal with superstar, Akon‘s Konlive Records.
Akon said of Samklef, “Everything Samklef touches turns to gold and I expect his first single, “Philo” to quickly climb the charts once it is released in 2017…he is the best all-around entertainer from Nigeria”.
Samklef shared on his Instagram page, “Dreams come through never give up God will always make a way. once again thanks to @akon for this great privilege and @rozybn @simcolgroup shout to my gee @demarcodadon #BLESSINGS#olowogbogboro”
He has equally described the opportunity to be part of Akon’s camp an honor.
Did you think there was a Falz vs 9ice beef?
Well, think again.
The two artistes were sort of boxed into a “beef situation” after FalztheBahdGuy aired an opinion about Nigerian musicians glorifying fraudsters with their music and 9ice came forward making counter comments as though Falz’s opinion were directed to him.
9ice even went as far as asking Falz to alert the EFCC if he could prove his lyrics praised fraud and fraudsters.
But Falz has just shared a video on his Instagram page where both artistes seemed chilled in a restaurant. 9ice shared the same video with the caption “Settled”:
See? No beef!
