    Wearing their sunglasses inside buildings? I really need to understand why people choose to do this. Or is it simply a case of “all join when nyanga dey involved”?

    I don’t get the shades indoors thing. If i were a show host i would add that as part of the invite to the show that no shades would be allowed. i need the ratings, you need the publicity. I dont see people appear on Oprah or Ellen with glasses. on your way there, fine. But inside whats the point?

    But if they’re already “friends” like praiz said in his intro, please why did Iyanya now say “nice to meet you?” Please I don’t understand. And ha, yes, what’s up with the sunglasses indoors??? Na wa o!

    No disrespect to these guys but some of our artist should invest in improving themselves.
    1, Both gentlemen do not sound confident. They are acting up and not being real(language and body carriage).
    2. I think we have had enough of the sun shade”act”, it is totally irresponsible.
    They both look good with their outfit but messed it up with the sun shades.
    I know our artist are aspiring to be like the likes of Jay Z.
    They should spent time in studying those artist and see how they answer questions, act at interviews and how knowledgeable when they respond to questions being asked. They should read books to broaden their knowledge and horizon. Some of our “talented” artist are very shallow. My thots.

    Fun idea to pair them up. They look really carefully-dressed.
    There’s a lot of talent in Naija, Africa, the world, and I just hope we keep building platforms to harness and project that. Many artistes suffer because it’s tough to make money, because the ‘platforms’ or systems are not there, and I guess these brothers said, mennnn, no, I’ma make money. You’ve got to do you. You don’t owe me nada, right?

    Thank you for Rich and Famous, Praiz. I remember when I first heard it. I dey inside bus sef dey press my ear on top the blackberry. I just dey replay the song. Might have been the first time I put a song on my phone. Not something I’ve done a lot in my life. Then the video was nice enough to make my list: Now you haven’t kept me as a fan, you know why 🙂 but hey, do you. My taste is not the be-all and end-all. e.g. I LOVE Jesse Jagz. I have at least a Masters degree in Jesse Jagz’ music. Imagine seeing him in concert and the biggest tune of his was Wetin Dey. Like, to me, that song would not even make my top twenty Jesse Jagz. So popularity matters as well as other things, I guess.

    The Iyanya revolution I didn’t care for until I went out and saw people dancing like maniacs to Kukere and esp. Your Waist. So I guess he made people happy. I also hear he’s very solid, has the voice and everything, just chooses to do such. He doesn’t have my attention at all. I bought his album I think, and there was nothing to make me keep it, it all seemed to have been done too fast, and I’m maybe looking for more 🙂 Still Bro, do you. My family loves you.
    There’s way too many options for me to be worried about the ones that are not really my style.
