ZADE Owns The Mic In The Lyrical Battle For The 3rd Week Of Hennessy VS Class V

Featured Image

Last Thursday, we experienced another spectacle in the Nigerian Hip-Hop scene with week 3 of the preliminary round of Hennessy VS Class V, as Vector, Douglas Jekan, Jimmie alongside guest judge for the week, Terry Da Rapman continued their search for the dopest Emcees in the game.

Zade, who took the crown for himself battled his way on a roller coaster ride to the final round, and his ruthlessness was enough to see him join the finalists of Hennessy VS Class V.

The week’s radio show on The Beat 99.9 FM had eight emcees: Zade, Reespect, Oj, Davidecee, Kiid Pro, Kmoney, Jabba Jaw and Major Heyjay who began with a 40 second freestyle, and moved on to a 2-part faceoff.

Reespect brought her A-game being the only female emcee competing in week 3. She displayed lyrical strength by emerging the group winner for Group A, with Zade narrowly making it through after a one on one battle with OJ.

Jabba Jaw was the most controversial emcee of the night as he was checked initially for exceeding his 40 second limit in the group round. Unfortunately his journey was cut short after he was found guilty of biting off another rappers lines, which led to him being disqualified from Group B.

Reespect got knocked out in the semis by Major AJ in a battle well fought, while Zade was in beast mode in his semi final battle with Kiid Pro.

For the final round, it was a battle between the finest emcees on the night as Major AJ took on Zade and at the end of the two-hour show there was only one clear winner: ZADE.

Justin Bieber And Hailey Baldwin Are Married?

Featured Image

It seems Canadian singer, Justin Bieber, 24, and US model, Hailey Baldwin, 21, have secretly gotten married!

Alec Baldwin, Hailey’s uncle, told People on Monday, September 17, at the 2018 Emmy Awards that the couple “just went off and got married. They went ahead and did it without listening to anyone.”

‘Game Of Thrones’ Shines At 2018 Emmy Awards | See Complete List Of Winners

The 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live star who brought this revelation to light in a red carpet interview before the Emmy awards in Los Angeles, also told Access “they just went off and got married and I don’t know what the deal is”.

“We text Hailey every now and then.We met him one time”.

The model previously denied that she tied the knot with Bieber after People reported that the two said “I do” at a New York City city clerk’s office on Thursday. 

The duo were spotted at the marriage bureau at a courthouse in New York City last Thursday, prompting the model to deny wedding rumours.

“I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I’m not married yet!” she wrote on Twitter on Friday in a since-deleted tweet. 

But an insider told People last week that the couple “went ahead and did it without listening to anyone”.

“They’re going to have a big blowout, in front of God and everyone they love,” the source added.

Meanwhile, when asked what advice he would give his new nephew-in-law, the 60-year-old star, whose brother is Hailey’s father Stephen, said: “Keep working … don’t stop working”.

There are also other top media outlets that are saying otherwise – even TMZ maintained on Tuesday that the couple are not married.

Samklef Reveals How He Overcame Depression, Talks Akon And Wizkid

Samklef Reveals How He Overcame Depression, Talks Akon And Wizkid

As the gale of depression continues to dominate the news, popular music producer and singer, Samklef, has revealed that he has also had his fair share of the emotional turmoil.

Speaking with The Punch on Sunday, the ace music producer, said:

“Entertainers are human beings too and we also go through tough times. When the issue of Harrysong came up, I understood his plight because I’ve also been in a similar situation.”

On what triggered the emotional turmoil, Samklef said:

“It has to do with my upbringing. I lost my father at a very early age and I didn’t grow up with my parents. Imagine an 11-year-old boy, who had to struggle for everything in life, but he was eventually able to turn all the negativity into something positive.”

“That is my story and it still affects me till date because I’m very emotional. Till now, I don’t like playing games because I would feel very bad if I lose. I always like to win.”

On how he overcame it, he said:

 “Whenever I’m feeling down, I listen to soul-lifting songs such as those by Don Moen and other inspirational singers. That’s my reset button. If you ask anybody around me, they know there’s no dull moment with me. I always stay away from negative vibes because I’m very emotional.”

The singer further maintained that he had never considered committing suicide despite the low moments in his life.

“I have never considered suicide. I have been through worse things and I always survived. At the age of 14, I was on the streets of Lagos Island living alone. I realise that everything I’m going through is a phase. There are times that one would feel that things are not working out and that happens to everybody. Once something is not working out for me, I move on to the next thing,” he said.

Dismissing insinuations that his recording deal with Akon’s Konvict Music had not been favourable to him, Samklef said:

“Everything is fine and my album will be out soon. People, who feel Akon has not been supporting my career, should ask him if that is so. We have a perfect deal and I’m okay with it. Things may be rough at the beginning but everything will take shape eventually.”

On his relationship with Wizkid, he said:

“I wouldn’t actually say we fell out. It is just that everybody has moved on and I am happy for his progress. He is making everybody proud. Success is not about how much you have but about how much impact you have on people’s lives. We recorded some songs together in 2016 which we didn’t release and we might decide to put them out later. Personally, I have paid my dues in the industry and I am happy about that. People, especially haters, will always talk. If you’re not important, nobody will talk about you.”

Mac Miller’s Death: Bow Wow Narrates How He Almost Died Due To Codeine Addiction

In the wake of Mac Miller‘s death from an apparent overdose, popular rapper, Shad Moss, better known as Bow Wow, has broken his silence on his own previous drug addiction.

In a series of tweets on Monday, the rapper said he almost died as a result of the addiction.

While encouraging his followers to stay away from drugs, Bow Wow admitted to using lean, a combination of promethazine, codeine and soft drinks, “every day” about 10 years ago.

He further said he was high from drinking lean every day while working on his 2007 album with singer Omarion, Face Off.

“To the youth- Stop with these dumb a— drugs,” he began on Twitter. 

“I’m going to let something out. When me and Omarion worked on FACE OFF album. I was high off lean everyday! When yall saw me on BET going off on torae I was high off lean.

“My attitude everything changed. My fans started to…Turn on me my family too. I never promoted lean in my songs.

After DJ Cuppy Dumped Feminism, Genevieve Nnaji Declares She’s “A Proud Feminist”

Days After DJ Cuppy Dumped Feminism, Genevieve Nnaji Declares She’s “A Proud Feminist”

Barely less than two weeks after Disc Jockey, Florence Otedola, popularly known as DJ Cuppy, revealed why she stopped being a feminist, ace Nigerian actress, Genevieve Nnaji, who recently attended the premiere of her movie ‘Lionheart’ in Toronto, has declared that she is proud to be one.

Netflix Acquires Worldwide Rights To Genevieve Nnaji’s Drama

Relishing in the euphoria of the acquisition of worldwide rights to her movie by Neflix, the actress, who spoke with Women and Hollywood, an online platform, said she embraces her femininity.

Her words: “I’m a proud feminist who embraces her femininity. I feel sometimes women are made to feel self-conscious and ashamed of their womanhood. Perhaps like ‘Wonder Woman’, we may wake up one day to discover that it is our superpower, and then we would be unstoppable.”

Her view on feminism is in contrast to that of billionaire heiress, DJ Cuppy, who had said that she’s not a feminist because she doesn’t understand it. 

“I used to consider myself a feminist, until I realised that I did not really understand it. I don’t like people who are hypocrites. People are out there speaking about women rights, but behind closed doors are doing crazy things.

“I will never come out as a feminist because I am in a male-dominated industry, so I have a certain scenario. I deal with men on a daily basis and I realise that they will always think that they are better than women. I don’t think it is going to solve it,” she said in an interview published online on August 30.

Meanwhile, the actress further spoke about the movie which she reveals is a “drama about family values, succession, and most importantly, female empowerment.”

Asked if she had any advice for other female directors, her response was: “I don’t consider myself qualified enough yet to give advice, to be honest, and so I say this to my peers as I say to myself daily: eliminate fear and self-doubt”.
