Chacha Eke Stars In “Amuche The Business Tycoon”

.

Hi Ladies and Gents, How are you  everybody??? I miss you guys.

.
I know i have not updated the blog in a while due to other engagements and stuff I have been busy doing, but i just wanted to stop by to promo this upcoming funny comedy starring one of my favorite actresses Chacha Eke (one of those i predicted when she started,is here to stay and had great potential). She is definitely NOT just one of the usual pretty face nollywood actresses, we get bombarded with, who are nothing but mediocres wasting peoples time with their useless acting (they know who they are and if they dont check out my drive by list on the left panel of this blog) . Chacha is of great talent. Definitely a force to be reckoned with as i said from day i saw her many years ago.
.
I am so happy for her that finally many are taking notice of her, and hopefully this comedy will be one of her biggest breakthrough yet which opens more doors for her. In the past few years she has defintely shown her range and versatility in different roles,  but hopefully more producers take notice of her and give her more great roles just as much as they will with other great talents like Mercy or Ini. She gorgeous, she articulate in her roles and gives it her 100% and inteprets it well (in my opinion). With what i see in this trailer I am thinking, she could even do some subtitled igbo movies too, cos she is definitely good and I will love to see her in such.
.
Chacha is married to movie producer (Austin Faani) and has a gorgeous baby girl by name of Kamara ChaCha Eke Faani celebrates 2-year wedding anniversary with husband Austin Faani, this year (2015), with her daughter Kamara. One of those few scandal free actresses you just gotta love.

Although the movie may be released online like youtube and stuff I encourage you all toactually purchase the movie (dvd, vcd etc) to support the cause and the industry. You know i never recommend anything rubbish, this is a comedy you could put in and watch and laugh with your friends and family any day.

I am not trying to copy Tiwa Savage — Lola Savage

American-born Nigerian singer, Lola Savage, is not related to Tiwa Savage. Though they bear same surname, Lola says she’s not trying to be like Tiwa Savage who is a big name in the Nigerian music industry. Instead, she expresses her desire to do a collabo with the songstress to prove to the world that she’s not back in Nigeria to compete with the Mavin records queen of songs. She shares her story with Showtime Celebrity.

How do you intend to break into the Nigerian music scene?

I am just a singer and I love to do it to the best of my ability. I am going to be myself even though there are many female artistes at the moment. I am going to work very hard in ensuring that I share my own craft with the world.

Lola-Savage-1What is your selling point as an entertainer?

It’s my looks and my voice.I don’t have the Beyonce kind of voice or that of Tiwa, Waje or Omawunmi. My voice isn’t as strong as theirs, but I do know that I have a beautiful voice. I can sing most current songs very well. My interest lies in old school music because I grew up listening to the likes of Ebenezer Obey and Afrobeat legend, Fela. I am going to stand out with my own voice and my looks.

Talking about your looks, are you referring to your sex appeal?

Yes, sex appeal and my style.Fashion is one thing, but style is carrying yourself in what you wear and being confident with it.That speaks a lot.

How did your journey into music begin?

I was a member of an RnB group back in Chicago. I actually played RnB with the group for about three years.We lost out on a deal and years later, everybody kept telling me that the Nigerian music industry is growing. That was between 2006 and 2007 .Though I was skeptical at that time, I still put out some singles and gave them to some Nigerian DJs that I came in contact with. I met the likes of Eldee and Banky W who kept telling me to relocate to Nigeria. But because of the things that were going on in my life at that time, I couldn’t take a bold step to return home. Fortunately, my mum gave me the push late 2013 and am here to see how far the push will take me.

Do people compare you with Tiwa Savage?

There really is no comparison except for the last name.She is one of the artistes in Nigeria that have actually paved the way for most of the female singers that are trying to do their own things.I respect her craft, I respect what she is doing. I am Lola Savage .I am just trying to do what I know how to do best since I was a child. I am here to show Nigerians that I can do it too.I am not trying to be like anyone else.I am not trying to be like Tiwa.I can sing too and I can perform.I am just here to show Nigerians that I can build my own brand and reach the level that some female acts have attained today. I am confident enough to know that I can get there.

What is your relationship with her?

We are not actually related, it’s more of an extended family affair. Savage is just one family here in Lagos.

Do you consider her as a threat to your career or as a mentor?

It’s not about competition, its about the fact that I see what she is doing and I respect it. If not for for her , I don’t think I will have that zeal to come here and do something of my own.

Is any of your songs inspired by a personal experience?

Yes, Dem Say, one of my songs basically talks about not allowing what people say bother us.A lot of people allow what people say get to them.I was having those issues at a time.I spoke with my producer and we decided to create a song around it.

Can you quit music for your relationship?

I definitely can’t quit music for my relationship. Whoever I’m dating should know and understand who I am and what I believe in. Relationship is about respecting each other and I will not quit music for a relationship.

Are you looking forward to working with a Nigerian female artiste?

Yes! And that will be Tiwa Savage

Why Tiwa Savage?

I just feel that we need to show the world that we are not competing. Jo-el and Tuface are a good example. The thing with Nigerians is that we don’t see things from a different perspective. What I think I need to do is to show Nigerians that I’m not competing with her by doing a song with Tiwa Savage. That doesn’t mean I am trying to hide behind her shadows to launch myself into the mainstream music world; that’s not my intention at all.It just shows that one is looking up to the other

What are the challenges you are facing as an emerging act?

So far, I have had challenges with productions, people who pretend to be what they are not.Everything here is just about money.

What are you implying?

What I mean is that everything in life is a hustle. It’s not only a Nigerian thing.It’s either about spending money or trying to get money.Since I have been here ,everything I have done has brought money out of my pocket.I have lost so much without getting the service that I was supposed to get.It’s sad and that’s my biggest challenge at the moment.

Have you experienced any wardrobe malfunction?

I pray it never happens.I have not experienced a wardrobe malfunction, but I have experienced microphone malfunction.When the microphone starts giving you that feedback sound, it hurts.You want to leave the stage crying.When I was in the female group, we did not use microphones because we did a lot of hip-hop dancing. We used more of headsets.It just makes things much more easier.

If you were to make a comparison between the music industry in America and that of Nigeria, what will it be?

The contract here is completely different from the contract in the U.S.A.Secondly, the way the audience interacts with a performer is so much different.They are not supportive that much.I have only come to understand the saying that bad publicity is also good. So, that keeps me going.

How do you handle criticism on the social media?

I don’t really care about what they say. If I have to give a response I will just say go check my background.People just like to talk.They don’t really do their homework and investigations.They don’t know me like they think they do.These are the ones that are called haters, they just hate you for no reason.

Do you play any instrument?

I play the piano. I also play the clarinet and the flute.A lot of people play by ear and not by musical notes.I studied musical notes, but growing up I forgot everything. I just play by ear

Whose advice has been useful to your career?

That will be that of Eldee.He was the first person to tell me that being in Nigeria was the best thing to have happened to me. That was in 2008, when he relocated to Nigeria.

How do you handle the attention from your male fans?

I entertain their friendship, but I do not encourage anything that goes beyond the friendship.

I am accountable for what my fans hear — Ms Jaie declares

We may not have given Ms Jaie enough attention when she released Kilon poppin. The R&B diva who has got a voice that can calm troubled souls has revealed that she is responsible for what her fans hear.

In her words: “Sometimes you get into compromising positions when someone wants you to wear something or say something that doesn’t correlate with who you are. I just don’t do anything I don’t want to do. I don’t see the point. I am not going to wear what I don’t want to wear or sing about what I don’t want to sing about.

At the end of the day, I am accountable for what my fans hear so I try to make sure that everything that I do, I can put my hands up and say I am proud of it.Young girls are watching. If it’s not something I want my future children to see, then I won’t do it.”

Speaking on her plans for 2015, the singer cum entrepreneur says she is ready to give her fans quality music. “My plan is just to put out good music this year. Its just all about the music. I just want to give my fans quality music that can stand up against international competitors.”

Ciroc opens up on the reasons for making D’Banj, Banky W brand ambassadors

Nigeria’s leading pop stars, Banky W and D’banj, were unveiled as the brand ambassadors for ultra-premium vodka, Ciroc, at an event held February 6, 2015, at Intercontinental Hotels in Victoria Island, Lagos. The duo were unveiled amidst pomp and pageantry to the media. Similar to its international alignment, where Ciroc partners with influential and successful talents around the world, the brand will be supporting Banky W and D’banj in their career efforts.

“ We are proud to be partnering with Banky W and D’banj, because together, these personalities embody the Ciroc experience and lifestyle. These two artistes are a force to reckon with on the internD’banjational scene, and we are excited for them to join the Ciroc family,” says Joe Nazzal, Head of Reserve, Ciroc.

Commenting on what it feels like to be endorsed by Ciroc, D’banj says: “It’s a great feeling. I started off the celebration of my tenth year anniversary and now I have been announced a Ciroc ambassador. Someone asked me outside, “How do you feel receiving this award ?” I think that guy said it the right way because it feels like a reward and also feels like an award. I am honoured because Ciroc is a premium brand and getting this during my tenth year anniversary celebration is like a certification saying “You are on the right track.”

In the same vein, king of R&B, Banky W, also expressed his joy being a Ciroc brand ambassador: “I identify with the brands that identify with the things I Identify with. Ciroc is about celebration, its about those that have worked hard and played hard. I work hard and play hard and identify with brands that do the same. Its not just about the followers or the social media, its about the lifestyle. It’s all about all of these wrapped into one. I started last year, I was feeling a little lonely and they brought in D’banj.”
