David Ayer Explains Why ‘Suicide Squad’s’ Joker Wears Grills

Featured Image

Why ‘Suicide Squad’s’ Joker Wears Grills – Suicide Squad director David Ayer has revealed a little back story into one of the film’s major characters, The Joker.

The Joker is played by Jared Leto, and sports grilled teeth as well as a tattoo on his head that reads ‘Damaged.’ In an interview with Empire magazine, Ayer revealed the history behind them, as well as the connection between Batman and the Joker.

READ: PHOTOS: Check Out The New ‘Suicide Squad’ Cast Portraits

Ayer said: “This is sort of my personal thing and maybe less about a larger connection but Joker killed Robin and Batman basically smashes his teeth out and locks him up in Arkham Asylum.”

“It’s in the asylum where Joker would have done the ‘damaged’ tattoo as a message to Batman saying, ‘You’ve damaged me. I was so beautiful before and now you’ve destroyed my face.’ That’s where the grill comes from.”

Vector Signs First Official Artist – AO | Check Out His Freestyle

Featured Image

G.R.A.P Music, which is Vector Tha Viper’s record label has signed its first act, rapper and hypeman Arinze Oruche aka AO. Originally from Anambra State, born and raised in Lagos till he left for the U.S. where he lived for 15 years until he returned to Nigeria about 4 years ago.

AO, has been making a lot of noise in the underground scene especially a few years ago when he dropped his first mixtape dubbed “I DON LAND OH“. When you first hear the voice of this extremely versatile artist, it might shake you up a bit, with some already crowning him “Deepest Voice In The Industry”.

His newfound buzz began after him and Vector had such an incredible performance at the most recent HEADIES Award. The ability to perfectly blend the styles of two lands (Naija and Yankee) together is what makes AO truly unique, and he shows this off in his soon to drop official first single “WALAHI WALAHI” which features Jesse Jagz & Vector.

But, until then, here’s a Machine freestyle from the rapper to show a sample of what he’s capable of.

ENJOY!

VIDEO: Ezi Emela – No Lele

Featured Image

Manchester born singing sensation Ezi Emela has a diverse network of influences. Born to Nigerian parents, the British songstress has kept a tight grasp on her African heritage and takes the shining elements of UK culture to create her brand new single ‘No Lele’, the visuals for which have just premiered on VEVO.

The record is doused in sensuality with a lick of fierce determination, as the velvet tones of Ezi Emela entwine their way across the Omeiza-produced musical backdrop. The afrotrap-leaning record makes a bold statement about Ezi Emela and her persistence in the face of any doubters.

Accompanied by an equally mesmerizing video, directed by Labi Odebunmi, that sees the former Chanel model take on many different guises, the colour and dancing cascade across the screen in an amalgamation of fashion, UK street and African culture.

Having previously released a variation of music that has seen Ezi Emela sway between styles and vibes, including a clearer British R&B sound on ‘Voicemail’, through to her collaborations with some of Africa’s biggest music legends such as P-Square, 2Face Idibia and the iconic Chocolate City record label, it is ‘No Lele’ that takes elements of all, to make this her biggest records to date.

Kim Kardashian Wishes Kylie Jenner The “Least Judgmental Person” She Knows A Happy Birthday

Featured Image

Today is Kylie’s 19th birthday and elder half-sister Kim Kardashian is wishing her the very best as she calls her “the least judgmental person”she knows.

Kim writes to Kylie, “Happy Birthday to my beautiful boss sister @kyliejenner I love you more than you know! I’m so proud of who you are as a person! You are the least judgmental person I know! Keep being you!”

Kylie didn’t receive love from only her sis, Tyga had given his bae a pre-birthday gift  of the 2017 Mercedes Maybach. It comes with a $191,300 tag, ie N62 million.

kim kardashian

Kylie Jenner received a 2017 Mercedes Maybach from Tyga

Bae goals, right? For both sexes so don’t think sexist thoughts.

Last year, for Kylie Jenner’s eighteenth birthday, she received a Mercedes G-Wagon from Tyga which was replaced with a Ferrari 458 convertible as the G-Wagon used to be his baby mama’s. A gift from Tyga to Blac Chyna.

If you ever worried what their big fall-out was about? There it is. “Their” refers to Blac hyna, Kylie Jenner, Tyga and the Kardashian sisters. The K sisters are against anyone against their baby sis. Simple.

Oh well, now everything’s well and good. With Blac Chyna becoming Tyga’s sister-in-law and Kylie’s elder half-brother, Rob becoming Kylie’s boyfriend’s son’s step-father.

Really twisted relationship, trust us, we get confused too.

Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian hates dancing, she revealed she gets into fights with Kanye West over it when she doesn’t move her body at any of his concerts she ‘manages’ to attend.

During Sunday night’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim said to Kourtney Kardashian and Malika Haqq, “Like, it was our biggest fight that I don’t dance at Kanye’s concerts. I did not dance on Dancing With the Stars. Like, I did not dance!”

Kim explained, “My biggest fear was during Watch the Throne that if I sit next to Beyoncé, she dances and she’s up, like, you know. So, the last night of the tour, she came to dressing room and was like, ‘Hey, do you want to sit together?’”

The mother-of-two play cried while recalling the tale to the women.

Kim Kardashian pretend-cries

Kim expressed, “Then, she wanted to go in the mosh pit and I was like, ‘What do we do in the mosh pit?’ She’s like, ‘Dance! Just let loose. Just dance!’ And I was like, ‘My life is over!’” LOL!

That bad, huh.

Is Nigeria A Country Of Religious Mugus? Yes! Charly Boy Bares His Brunt

Featured Image

Charly Boy opines Nigerians are religious mugus being exploited by religious magas.

The controversial entertainer bared his brunt in an essay describing what ‘religion’ is to him and advised the populace to stop jumping from one religious offshoot to another in the name of “miracle”.

He added that some pastors are taking advantage of the peoples’ religious ignorance citing that every person can get his blessings directly from God without an intermediately, especially a mortal man like oneself.

The AreaFada as his Twitter handle refers also informed those who cared to know that he has read the bible from Genesis to Revelation over twenty times. Have you?

On the subject of fidelity, Charly Boy confessed to being sexual with only his wife for the past thirty-nine years.

Who are we going to ask?Oh well,  if it’s true, we hail him. He’s a rare breed.

charly boy

Charly Boy has some very interesting things to say

Read Charly Boy’s essay, posted by Linda Ikeji, it makes for an interesting read

Call me names, think what you may of brand CharlyBoy, Na for your pocket. I no send you. I will always say what I want to say, how I want to say it regardless of the many fake people I offend. Gbam! There is so much hypocrisy/fakeness going on in this goddamn country it’s incredible.

I was so tickled by some peoples comments, when I penned down my personal opinion on Pastor Adebayo’s yarns as to what constitutes a good wife/husband.

Aside the mass unemployment, ignorance and poverty abound, Naija I believe is the Genesis of this Pentecostal influence across Africa. I know that many would do anything to run away from the excruciating poverty my people are witnessing even if they have to speak in tongues and most Pastors are happily taking advantage of the situation. Der is God o!!

A lot of us been brainwashed on how to worship God as some churches now come up with different gimmicks. It is not surprising to see people attend church rituals involving frantic falls, as if grasped by epileptic seizures, forming attack by the spirits.

Yes, most of these dramatics are paid for, like the nollywood actor who claimed that the devil exited his body through his foot.

Now, some parents are praying for their sick children at home instead of seeking medical attention; of chaining children to enable the pastor cast out demons. Many women are caught having sex with pastors in bending corners, and found spending more time catering for their pastors.

How about husbands who have lost their wives totally to Randy and horny perverted pastors. Yes, what about the ones who can’t hold down a marriage, when me wey dem talk say I dey craze, don collect 39 yrs for one woman hand. Kai. The list goes on.

I am not suggesting that all Men of God are tinted, but out of a hundred you may not find 4 that live what they preach, the rest are taking advantage of our religious ignorance.

Would it surprise you if I tell you that I have read the bible page to page over 20times. So I know more than I make out. I know that true men of God do not misquote the bible, it’s only demons who misquote or misapply the bible in the same way. I know that God cannot punish us if we don’t pay tithe to our church because it is the goodness of our hearts that interests God more than physical and financial disposition.

I know that true men of God can not promise us happiness and prosperity all of that is a fortune-teller’s lie, there is nothing in the bible about any “medium” that God uses to deliver such blessing. When I was growing up, men of God were renowned for their simple lifestyles. They endured the hardships the natives suffered in a bid to impart in them the knowledge of Jesus Christ and the word of God.

The legacy of these humble men has since been overtaken by conmen to get rich from donations and wayo tactics as they mesmerize and swindle unsuspecting religious mugus.

Fake Christians should go and read Matthew 21: 22 which says “And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive”. This, like many other similar verses in the New Testament, clearly explains that a man must have no latent doubt in his heart but must have absolute trust in the power and good will of God. Meaning therefore that it is not the Pastor’s prayer that sets one free from spiritual bondage, but first and foremost one´s faith in Jesus Christ. Nowhere is it stated in the Bible that, prayers and miracles must be done in exchange for money, biko, because salvation is for free and for everyone.

Our mumu never do?

It is unfortunate that while some churches minister to the spiritual, educational and economic needs of people, others use the same gospel fraudulently/intelligently to acquire wealth out of the destitution of the poor. Even more annoying are those who have the answers under their very noses, but who driven by these manipulations still abide blindly to such fake doctrines.

At the end of the day, I know that how a man chooses to worship his God is up to him. Worshipers are not forced to be followers in any of these churches; they follow some of these useless “men of God” on their own accord, thereby making the pastor’s wealth acquisition fairly legal.

However, Christians should always have this in the back of their minds. False christians and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive.

Are you a learner? Look that your pastor well well o. Man of God my Ass. End time tins.

If you did get through reading this, what are your thoughts? Does Charly Boy have a point? or is he just ranting?

Ezudwu, while inaugurating the court martial at the military media center in Maiduguri, warned the president of the court and its members against unnecessary adjournments, while seeing to it that justice is done.

He said: “The court martial is to achieve timely and quick dispensation of justice within the framework provided in relevant statute books.”

“It important that both the prosecution and the accused persons or their counsel are mindful of this fact and strive to shun all forms of antics such as request for frivolous adjournments, which could lead to delays in the trial process.

“It is often said in legal parlance that justice delayed is justice denied.”

The court, presided over by Brig.-Gen. Adeniyi, promised a fair and speedy trial.

His words: “I must assured all, especially the accused, that they have nothing to fear; we are going to be fair to all of them.

“Be guided by the Constitution and all other military laws. We would be fair and just. There are higher courts where the judgement here can be appealed.

“You have the right for legal representation.

“We are not going to allow for any unnecessary delay, justice delayed, they say, is justice denied.”

Yard Sale! Jose Mourinho Admits He Has To Sell Some Players

Featured Image

Mourinho Admits Man Utd Have To Sell – Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has admitted that he has to sell some players.

The club have had an amazing transfer window so far, completing the signings of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mhkitaryan, Eric Bailly and former Paul Pogba.

This has created a surplus in some positions, with some players now having to leave the club. Bastian Schweinsteiger, Juan Mata and Adnan Januzaj have all already been linked with moves away from Manchester.

READ: Mourinho Declares “Champions League Is Empty Without Manchester United”

“I’m really happy [with my squad],” Mourinho told MUTV. “It’s the first time I’ve worked with such a number of players because I’m used to working with 20 plus the keepers, and we have in the squad 23 plus the keepers – and even so we had to make decisions and let some players go on loan, and try to sell others.”

“But this group of 23 is a great group and I think in this moment – and I told them this – there is a little bit of frustration for the ones that I have not selected. They work hard to be in the match and they aren’t, and this is going to happen in the next two or three weeks because we have just one Premier League match.

“But, in September, the League Cup starts, the Europa League starts, we start playing three matches a week and then everybody is involved and the squad is good. The empathy between the guys is really good too, so I’m happy with the squad.”

R Kelly Slighted For Dating A Teenager, Again? 😲

Featured Image

R Kelly’s new relationship has been met with disdain especially as she’s 19 to his 49.

Since his affair with Halle Calhoun became public knowledge, it has unearthed several cans of worms from the past, like his historical companionship with underage girls; eg his illegal marriage to Aaliyah and his child pornography allegations.

In 1994, Kelly secretly got married to Aaliyah when she was just 15 although it was later annulled. He asserted they both loved each other. Okay.

In 2002,  a video of a man who looked like R Kelly having sex and urinating on an underage 13-year-old girl surfaced. He was never charged with sexual assault and his child pornography charges got dropped.

Despite this, child porn is an offense that always sticks even if you end up being proven innocent.

The claims forever damaged Kelly’s image which has caused his new relationship to be met with scorn.

R Kelly and Halle Calhoun

Several people weren’t too pleased as they ripped the singer:

  • King Anthony (@trillac_) August 8, 2016 – R Kelly is a sick man. I don’t care he gave us the Ignition Remix.
  •  Flex Luthor (@neckofdwoods) August 8, 2016 – Never forget. R. Kelly illegally married Aaliyah when she was 15 and he executively produced her hit song “Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number”.
  • NUFF$AID (@nuffsaidNY) August 8, 2016 – Yeah…so…R. Kelly might want folks to get over his past, but it looks like some people will never let him forget it.
  • caribbean.getaways – I just want to say that I am a fan of R Kelly’s music. I think he is a musical genius, but we gotta be real as a people if we really have love for him. Our brother needs help. R Kelly is a pedophile. Just being 💯. His history has shown all of us this but we overlook it because of his musical gift and that doesn’t help him or any of the young girls whose lives he has helped to alter. This young lady is of legal age so it’s not criminal, but just barely. With all his history with young girls people are still here defending him because of who he is knowing dam well if this was your 19 year old family member and just some 50 year old random dude from up the street this would not be beautiful or praise worthy. We need to get our brother the help he needs. This girl is legal but it ain’t no telling how old the next one we don’t hear about will be.

In R Kelly’s defense though, some don’t think she looks 19, they assert she is older. What do you think?

Mourinho Declares “Champions League Is Empty Without Manchester United”

Featured Image

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has declared that the Champions League is ’empty’ without his team in it.

The Portuguese made the declaration on the backdrop of failure by his predecessor Louis van Gaal to drag the team to a top-four finish in the Premier League last season. 

In an exclusive interview with BT Sport, Mourinho claimed that the competition was not the same without United, although he admitted that Barcelona and Real Madrid were also integral to the competition.

Mourinho, who recently won his first piece of silverware as United boss with a 2-1 win over champions Leicester in Sunday’s Community Shield, revealed that he needs to return United back to their “natural habitat.”

He said: “Man United has to be in the Champions League. I think that the Champions League is empty when Man United is not there.

“Imagine the Champions League without Man United, Real Madrid, Barcelona. There are a certain numbers of clubs that make it not a Champions League without these clubs. That’s Man United and their natural habitat.”

“I wouldn’t be happy with just finishing in the top four.”

“I would be happy with that but plus a greater evolution in the team in terms of our evolved football. Opening the door for in the next couple of years back to winning titles.”

Nevertheless, Mourinho said there is only one aim for his side ahead of the new season: To win every game.

“I don’t like to go to the players and tell them ‘let’s try to finish in the top four’ – let’s try to win every game. We don’t and we know that, especially in this country, at this moment it is impossible for anyone.

“But to have that as a starting point, let’s go to every game and try to win every game. But I think a big club like we are, we need to have this mentality,” he added.

Popular Nigerian comedian, Bright Okpocha, better known as Basketmouth has dismissed rumours that he was one of those who advocated for the emergence of the President Muhammadu Buhari led government.

Basketmouth, in a recent post on his Instagram page, made this disclosure, in reaction to hostile criticism from his followers, who accused him of endorsing the current government into power.Basketmouth

His words:

I usually try not to pay attention to comments from people that assume stuff or those who judge others based on perceptions. However I have also come to agree that when lies are said often enough, they begin to sound like truths. So I think it’s best I use this medium to clear the issue of “campaigns” and “support” now.

While many of my colleagues, friends and family members campaigned for the PDP, APC and various candidates during the last elections (and I cannot emphasize enough that it is their RIGHT to do so), I never campaigned for Buhari or any other politician.

ALL those saying that I did should do everything within their power to “THINK”. I know thinking can be a very difficult task for some but trust me, it can be a painless and enlightening process. THINK of when I ever “CAMPAIGNED” for BUHARI!!.. Indeed I personally HOPED that he would win the election and perhaps that was evident in my “body language” and I am happy he won. But I did not campaign for him.

Nigeria was in a bad place by the end of the last administration and it was only a matter of time before we would have suffered the plights of Brazil and Venezuela. Truth of the matter is that I would have voted ANYONE that could speak 2 words of English against GEJ and that’s strictly based on the amount of greed and selfishness we witnessed from members of his administration in the 6 years that he sat on the rock. They put us in this Septic tank we are in right now…..well, that and the oil price downfall amongst other things.

I have said it numerous times that I am not a politician hence I try not to dabble in politics. However I think a few people interpret crying out against injustice by the one as campaign for the other. When the Late FELA KUTI and BOB MARLEY cried out against the injustices in their days, were they being partisan? Of course not. They were just being HUMAN!

I am forever grateful to God for blessing me with a flourishing career, a beautiful family, food on my table and small change in my pocket. However I see too many people everyday who have not been so lucky to travel and see the way things are outside Nigeria/Africa. I have seen how GOVERNMENT can influence and affect the lives of the downtrodden positively. I am still patient, praying and hoping that PMB can turn Nigeria’s economy around and help strengthen Nigeria’s social justice system. Not so I can cheer him and be vindicated that I was right and some were wrong, but so my friends, family members and well-wishers who haven’t been favored as others can have renewed hope in our country Nigeria and the brotherhood we have enjoyed in this generation. Even the United States went through a tough recession in 2008 and with some patience they have been able to turn that around.

So long story short, did I campaign for PMB? NO! Do I support and PRAY that his administration should succeed and improve the life of the common man, increase security, food, jobs, infrastructure, quality of education, healthcare and every other area that will make Nigerians proud wherever they may find themselves? YES!!

On the other hand, should he and his party fail, we are all free to cast our votes for the next man come 2019 and I shall be exercising that right. No need for quarrel.

4-1-4-1: How Chelsea Could Line Up With Kante

Featured Image

After Antonio Conte was announced has Chelsea’s new manager, many looked forward to seeing his traditional 3-5-2 formation in the EPL.

The former Juventus manager won the Scudetto and started the club’s reign of dominance with that formation.

However, upon the arrival of N’golo Kante, who starred for Leicester City last season. Other tactics have popped up. With many thinking Conte will continue with Mourinho’s 4-2-3-1.

That does not seem to be the case, as the Italian manager will utilise the 4-1-4-1 formation at Chelsea. It looks more like the 4-1-2-2-1. And you can expect to see the 4-1-4-1 metamorphose into the 4-1-2-2-1 during a match.

The tactic is a versatile one, as it favours both massive attack and massive defence. And with Kante serving as the tie between the midfield and defence, you can expect to see him track back first, and be the last to drive up front.

Back 5: Courtois; Ivanovic, Terry, Cahill, Azpilicueta

tmp_1850-cahill terry-779533157

Until Kurt Zouma returns to full fitness you can expect the same back four Chelsea fielded last season. With the familiar faces of Terry and Cahill in the heart of defence.

You would think a different crop of defenders and goalie will feature for the blues this season, owing to the performance this set displayed last season.

The Terry-Cahill combo was a formidable force, but last season saw them dwindle. Hopefully, they’re back to their best.

Ivanovic is one to worry about also, his quality is one that is known. However, he didn’t impress last season. Azpilicueta could shift to right-back and allow youngster, Ola Aina feature in left-back.

Midfield 5: Kante: Willian, Fabregas, Oscar, Hazard

kante

Last season defensive midfield duo of Matic and Mikel was rotated, with Fabregas sometimes playing alongside Matic. Kennedy also played alongside the Serbia midfielder.

They were not impressive, with Matic looking a shadow of himself. Chelsea were more defensive with Mikel and more attacking when the other players featured.

The attacking midfield featured the trio of Hazard/Pedro, Fabregas/Oscar, Willian. The new addition of Pedro was not felt by the blues. This midfield was feared in the 2014/15 season won the EPL, but their inability to defend proved detrimental to the blues last season.

Kante’s presence in front of the back four is going to allow Conte to deploy a very talented attack-minded midfield four, and that could be deadly.

Kante’s presence will make up for Fabregas and Oscar’s inability to track back and defend. Matic is expected to join Juventus as a replacement for Pogba and Oscar could be on his way out.

Chelsea have been linked with signing Mahrez and if the deal does go through, Willian or Hazard could drop to a central midfield role and allow the Algerian his favoured right-wing role.

Forward: Diego Costa

Despite the acquisition of Michy Batshuayi, you can still expect Diego Costa to lead the line for Chelsea.

The Spain international was sub par at the beginning of the season, but rediscovered his form towards the end.

The blues are still looking to sign Romelu Lukaku, and if the Belgian joins, Conte could play 4-4-2 or use his traditional 3-5-2.

After missing out on Spain’s squad for the European Championships, Costa will be hungry to rediscover the deadly form that fired Chelsea to the title in the 2014/15 season.

The EPL season starts August 13. And Chelsea play West Ham in their first match.

NNPC Addresses Reports On Increase In Fuel Price

Featured Image

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) on Tuesday reacted with a denial to reports that the corporation will soon announce an increase in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS).

Shortly after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, the Group Managing Director Dr. Maikanti Baru, disclosed that so far the request for forex for the importation of petrol had been met and the NNPC’s supply situation was “robust.”

This assertion comes barely a day after oil marketers warned of an impending increase in the pump prices of petrol due to the continued scarcity of foreign exchange to finance the importation of the product.

On Monday, the oil workers weigh their reasons on the spiraling rise of the United States dollar, which hit an all-time high last week, as it exchanged for N400 at the parallel market.

Baru, however, denied any knowledge of the price increase, saying that there was no directive to that effect.

His words: “I have not been directed to increase pump price, even the other price was based on recommendation from the regulatory body.

“I’m not aware that they are planning to do any increase, you know there are several factors that necessitated that ,especially the issue of exchange rate that has moved and we don’t expect any serious changes.

“So far the request for forex for importation of gasoline, popularly called petrol, has been met and our own supply situation is robust, we are meeting demands.’’

The managing director, however, revealed that Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) could review the prices of petroleum products when necessary.

He said that NNPC currently had in stock over 1.4 billion litres of PMS for sale to the public at government-controlled price of N145 per litre.

“We have over 1.4 billion litres on ground.

“So, I don’t see any basis for increase; however, the review could be done by the right body, you should contact PPPRA, that is the regulatory body as far as petrol pricing is concerned,’’ he said.

Zidane: Ramos Was The Difference In Super Cup Win

Featured Image

Sergio Ramos has been singled out for praise by Zinedine Zidane. The Real Madrid coach said thr defender proved the difference in the super cup win over Sevilla.

The Real Madrid captain was at the top of his game, as he produced a top-of-the-drawer performance against Sevilla, with Los Blancos winning 3-2 after extra time.

The experienced centre-back equalised in the 93rd minute to keep Madrid alive before full-back Dani Carvajal scored the winner in the final minute of extra time.

And Ramos, who had a goal ruled out in extra time, was praised by Zidane post-match.

“You have to congratulate Sevilla on their great performance,” said Zidane, who became just the fifth coach to win the Super Cup having also hoisted the trophy aloft as a player.

“Sometimes to play a great game it takes two sides and today we saw just that. In the end we won, but Sevilla were very good.

“Sergio Ramos is our captain, an important player and he’s always there to earn us the trophy. There were no special instructions for him. With a player like Sergio, he’s always been the difference. We’ve seen it before. He’s grown as a player, too. In this final he was there just where he needed to be.”

7 Times Jesse Jagz Sent Your Favorite Rapper Running for Cover

Featured Image

When you hear the name Jesse Garba Abaga or Jesse Jagz, what comes to your mind first? The younger brother of M.I. Abaga, the Nigerian rapper who lost his way, or one of the GREATEST out of Africa?

7 Times Jesse Jagz Sent Your Favorite Rapper Running for Cover

7 Times Jesse Jagz Sent Your Favorite Rapper Running for Cover

Jesse Jagz as a rapper, broke into the industry proper, in 2010 with the release of his debut album “Jag Of All Tradez”. The album housed 18 tracks which included top notch tracks like “Jargo” “Greatest” along with some other worthy to listen joints.

Even if it appears to be ignored in the Nigerian music industry, as a lover of the genre ‘hip-hop’ (…well I can’t possibly call myself an ‘OG’ even if I tasted a little from the ‘Ice-T’), I know and can give facts that the genre is mostly about bragging and it sounds better when it’s from the heart. That is: Hip-Hop or Rap music, is the Survival of the Fittest. Only the realest and sometimes rawest gain the glory –sorry …In Nigeria the gore is ignored–.

Moving on, the August 10, 1900 born rapper, producer and sometime Rastafarian – Jesse Jagz, has a footprint in the industry, which will without doubt, be preserved for a very long time if not forever.

It’s widely–acceptable for you to be skeptical about Jagz. But, wait after the below list you might give it another thought:

  1. When the “Greatest” was released:

Like I said earlier, Hip-Hop is a genre that has to do with bragging. With Greatest, Jesse Jagz held his ground unveiling the genius in him, making it clear that he is here to stay. Connecting the song to his life, he rapped “This is my expression // This is the result of my refreshing // This is the JOY that came from my DEPRESSION”.

  1. When “Third World War (feat. Femi Kuti)” was released:

Somehow, this song wasn’t “really” popular when it was released. The official soundtrack for the 2015 Nigerian psychological movie Heaven’s Hell, may not be popular but it is till date, one of the best collaborations in Nigeria.

This wasn’t The Clash of the Titans, rather it was the “Coming Together of Zeus (Femi Kuti) and Kratos (Jesse Jagz)”. And, when those two come together, you’d better pledge allegiance.

  1. When “Jargo” was released:

Okay, who wasn’t moved by this track? Deliveries were on point; production was something else. This was the tune that made Jesse Jagz, your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper.

  1. The moment Jesse Jagz embraced Rastafari, and prayed with a “Burning Bush”:

Jagz Nation, Vol.1. Thy Nation Come, was the revolution of Jesse Jagz. When he heard the call, he gladly embraced and welcomed it. With Burning Bush, jesse Jagz paid homage to Hadiza Aboki (still don’t know who that it is though).

  1. The point when all Jesse needed was “Sex and Scotch”:

DJ: What would you like me to play?

You: A baby making song.

DJ: Track 07 [Jagz Nation, Vol.1. Thy Nation Come]

Jesse Jagz brought out his explicit side with the ear soothing song, to make filling-up of the ovary extremely easy. As long as there is a connection, the testicles know what to do.

Forget the herbs, Reggae music isn’t what you wake-up as an artist or musician and decide to delve into. If you’re competent enough, it will find you and make you feel alive.

  1. When Jesse Jagz and Rexx mixed the Herbs with Palm Wine for “High Life”:

In my opinion, High Life elaborated the energy and courage alcohol can easily provide when you need to woo a lady. With Jesse Jagz’s calm delivery and the Rexx proving himself to be one of the “Lords of the Hooks,” on a superb eastern production, High Life was a stand out track on his “Jagz Nation Vol. 2: Royal Niger Company” album.

 

  1. Dear rapper, before dissing please remember this disclaimer; “Nobody Test Me”:

The closing track of debut album – Jag Of All Tradez, “Nobody Test Me (feat. Ice Prince & M.I.)” is arguably the best Chocolate City collaboration ever recorded. You can’t expect less from an ANTHEM that has a warning title.

 

From his archive of hits, above are seven [7] songs by Jesse Jagz that sent your favorite rapper running for cover. Whenever the “god” is on the mic, you know it’s going to be blessed day for the believers and otherwise for the non-believers.

For a producer who delved into rapping, you can’t tell me Jesse jagz’ versatility is not a gift from God. I mean, go through your favorite Nigerian entertainment/music platforms and see what your favorite rapper thinks about Jesse Jagz. You can also tweet at your favorite rapper(s) and ask if him/her don’t feel scared when Jagz comes through.
