How Wizkid ruined Rexxie’s ‘Abracadabra’ and the remix – Influencer, Roviel
A Nigerian Twitter Influencer known as Obong Roviel has accused superstar singer, Wizkid of making fans to stop listening to Rexxie’s Abracadabra.
Wizkid was featured on the remix of the song but ever since it was released, there’s been debates about which is better between it and the original version which features Naira Marley and Skiibii.
Obong averred that Starboy made history by being the first A list artist to ruin both an original song and the remake.
He tweeted; “This is the first time I’m seeing an A list act kill the vibe of both the original and Remix. Now nobody is even listening to the original again.”
In other entertainment news, Street artiste, Akinbiyi Abiola Ahmed, popularly called Bella Shmurda, has revealed that he paid a huge sum of money to free himself from the contract he signed with his former record label.
CorrectNG reports that the ‘Newborn Fela’ crooner was formerly signed to One World Global Records.
He said he paid N20 million to the management so that he could be released to be an independent artiste after spending just a year out of his 3-year contract.
According to the singer, he was being cheated by the label because they equally funded his music projects, but One World took a larger percentage of the earnings.
Speaking on Tea with Taymesan podcast, he explained that he would source for N500k as requested by the label and they in turn would bring N500k for production, promotion and other things that need funding.
However, when money starts coming from shows, streaming, endorsement and other areas, they would take 70 percent and give him 30 percent.
Bella said he was not comfortable with that arrangement so he hired a lawyer and bought himself out of One World Global Records.
Meanwhile, Mohbad has revealed that his friend and colleague, Bella Shmurda used to invite him to perform at Lagos State University (LASU).
He was speaking about his relationship with the ‘Newborn Fela’ hit-maker during an interview as he revealed that they’ve known each other for four years.
According to Mohbad, Shmurda would tell him how big he was at LASU and when he gets there for a show he usually gets confirmation that he was known.
Mohbad said when Bella Shmurda was still a student at LASU, he would invite and pay him to perform at his school.
The Ko Por Ke crooner said Bella has always been supportive of his career long before he got signed to Marlian Records and became successful.
