WHEN DID YOU START MUSIC OFFICIALLY AND WHAT INSPIRED YOU?

I first featured in Star Quest in 2007. Went back to school and and came back officially in June 2015. I have been singing since I was 7 years old. My brother inspired me as I saw him pursue he's dream and he told me I can make it.

ARE YOU SIGNED TO ANY RECORD LABEL AT THE MOMENT?

I am not under a Record Label right now, but I am managed by 23/25 Entertainment.

THE SONG "BAMIDELE" SEEMS TO BE YOUR BIGGEST SONG EVER, WHAT BROUGHT IT UP?

Well, I was just vibing in the studio with my producer Teemode and the idea just kinda flowed. I wanted a different scenario instead of the guy toasting a girl, why not the girl doing it? It was fun making that track.‎

DO YOU HAVE SONGS YOU'VE RELEASED BEFORE OR AFTER "BAMIDELE"?

‎I have many other songs recorded, but I have only released Bamidele. That's my first official single.

THE SONG HAS QUITE SOME RADIO POPULARITY AND LESS SOCIAL MEDIA POPULARITY WHY?

‎We all have different strategies to explore. We are available on social media. We also need to promote it on Radio and TV so, the traction. We get is what we follow up more. I want to use this medium to thank all the Stations playing Bamidele.thabjs for supporting my dream.

THE SONG IS NOT MUCH OF A HIT SONG EVEN THOUGH IT IS A GREAT SONG, DID YOU NOT PROMOTE IT WELL?

I am happy you said it's a great song, if you do music, you will know it's not easy at all and if you have a great song, it opens you up for a hit song. You're looking for a hit abi, don't worry I am bringing a train to jam you soon. *laughs*

ANY PLANS ON REMIXING THE SONG WITH AN A-LIST ARTIST?

We are currently in talks with some artistes, we need to get it right and not just put any artiste for the sake of it. You might get a Bamidele remix soon.


THE SONG'S VIDEO WAS RELEASED RECENTLY, HOW EASY WAS THAT?

I had fun shooting the video because it was shot in my city, Osogbo. The logistics wasn't exactly easy Cus it wasn't in Lagos, but I had the best crew working on the video. Deji Kale shot it, and he was amazing. ‎

CAN YOU MENTION A FEW SHOWS, EVENTS YOU'VE PERFORMED AT?

My favourite was the Glo Lafta Fest in Ikeja. The biggest was the Star Trek in Lagos. I also performed at the One Lagos Fiesta. We don try.


ANY AWARD NOMINATIONS?

Yes. I just won the Best Song Recording at the Top Naija Music Awards. That's the first and hopefully more will as soon as possible.


SO, WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR 2016, SHOULD WE EXPECT MORE GOOD MUSIC?

I have 2 new singles ready for release. 2016 is my fear don't fret.

Actress Annie Macaulay Idibia Full Biography


FULL NAME:          Annie Macaulay Idibia
DATE OF BIRTH:   13 November 1984
OCCUPATION:       Actress,model and presenter
MARITAL STATUS:  Married

 INTRODUCTION  
Annie Macaulay Idibia  is a popular Nigerian, model, presenter and actress, she has earned herself quite some huge fan base because of the things she does. Annie started acting in 2009 and today she's an A-list actress in the movie Industry. Annie is also the wife of the famous Nigerian musician 2baba.




EARLY LIFE AND BACKGROUND  

Annie Idibia was born in Ibadan. She’s from Eket, Akwa Ibom state. She is also from a family of four children; three brothers and herself. Her mum and dad divorced  many years ago.

She lived in Ibadan with her parents, her father was working with Mobil and my mother was a house wife. She remained a house wife until they divorced. She was born with a silver spoon but she didn’t grow up with it because their father left them.
After her parents divorced, her mother got a job with Mobil working as a cook to support the family. Thereafter, they moved to Jakande Estate, Lekki, Lagos and later moved to Thomas Estate, also on the Island. After the entire struggle, God blessed them tremendously and now her eldest brother is married, the second one too is married and lives in Atlanta but her younger brother died of tuberculosis at 15.

She started working immediately after she graduated from secondary school at age 15. She worked as a sales girl in a boutique and two other places before she got admission to study.
She also worked part time as an undergraduate of Computer Science at the Lagos State University when she was 18-years-old. Thereafter, she got admission into the University of Lagos where she bagged a degree in Theatre Arts.

Annie revealed; everything that happened made her stronger and independent as a woman. As the only girl, her mother taught her to do domestic chores. Today she is married and she has domestic staffs but she still cooks and does house chores.
She was almost a tom boy while growing up because of her brothers. Her major heartbreak was when her parents divorced. It affected her so much while she was in secondary school but her mum tried her best to make life meaningful for them.
She assisted her mother in her shop which was very close to their house after school. She was also working to make ends meet.
She has however reconciled with her father after much pressure from her mum to forgive and forget regardless of the past. Now they all have a good relationship with their father.

CAREER AND LIFE  

She came into Nollywood in 2009, but before then she had featured in minor roles while in the University. After graduation and the birth of her first baby, she got deeply involved in acting.
She attended so many auditions after her secondary education and also did some modelling jobs for a while earning as little as N2000. The highest fee she ever earned was N5000 but she wasn’t discouraged. She worked with Dakova and KC Jabari and also did ushering jobs at events. She was also second runner-up of Queen of All Nations Beauty Pageant and after that she went fully into Nollywood.

Prior to the start of Annie Macaulay–Idibia's acting career, she competed at the "Queen of All Nations Beauty Pageant" where she placed runner-up and she also went on feature in a cameo appearance on the music video of 2face Idibia's "African Queen" song.
Her Nollywood career came to limelight for her role in the movies titled Pleasure and Crime and Blackberry Babes.Annie Macaulay–Idibia is married to 2face Idibia with whom she has two children. She also owns a beauty salon in Atlanta called "BeOlive Hair Studio".

She met her husband Tuface in 1999 and they started dating in 2002. They dated till they got married in 2012. Though, there were times they had differences during courtship but the bond they shared and love for each other took them to the altar. 
Speaking On How They First Met In An Interview:
Annie narrates: “The moment our eyes met at Even Ezra Studios many years ago, I knew you were the one for me and I for you.”
“Innocent is an extraordinary being. It really seems like yesterday, (I can’t believe he is 40 already) he was 24 and I was 15,” she adds.
“And I still see the same man when I look at him. So full of life, so much energy. He is always optimistic about life. He is never afraid of the next day with the little or nothing he had…” she intimates.
“He always says… ‘Baby you worry too much. Just believe, believe’. I remember many evenings he would walk me from 201 in FESTAC to the major road outside Festac, the road was so wide and scary to cross that he would have to hold my hands and we would run across the road together!” She continues to narrate.
“Once I got in the bus going to CMS he would wait till it was full and wave at me till the bus was out of his sight. His smile while waving is still very fresh in my memory, Baby do you remember those evenings?”
She has 5 step-children: Zion Idibia (born in January 2006), Nino Idibia (born in April 2008), Rose Idibia, Justin Idibia and a son who’s name is unknown (born in April 2012).

REVIEW: We Need More Songs Like Phyno's CONNECT To make Igbo Language More Influential In The Music Industry.


Hello guys, its your favourite TIN Magazine writer Apata Bayode and if you are a music lover or artist you should checkout the article below, its me talking about PHYNO's CONNECT song.


So, many Nigerian rappers last year tried crossing to the singing zone starting from Olamide and the rest, but actually only few of them did well and among the few is Baba Igbo, Phyno.
I tuned on to TraceUrban channel 325 on DSTV late November 2015 and guess what?? Trace was showing my favorite jam Adele’s HELLO music video, after the end of the video I was about switching to HIPTV when I saw “CONNECT” on the screen I was like; “Wetin be connect again Phyno??” And immediately I remembered someone on my Facebook TL was talking about one Connect song by phyno few days before, and I was like “let me check this one out for a minute sha…” 

After watching the video for about a minute I was like “The hell?? Phyno haven’t rapped?” I was seriously feeling the rhythm and the few Brokin and English I could understand in the song and most especially the heavy cool beat cooked by T-SPICE was turning me on like torchlight and the video itself is so “doppy!” I didn’t finish the video before I went online searching the song and I realized it’s been released since October, didn’t know, “Not a big fan of Phyno ”.  I immediately went on MTNmusicplus to buy the song because I loved it, well, that’s what I do when I hear songs on radio or somewhere that I really love its sound.

After downloading the song It was on my repeat for about 5times before I finally decided to look up the lyrics and translation online.. After getting the lyrics and meaning online I became much more obsessed with the song because it made a lotta sense to me. Even though I still don’t  understand some words in the song  but I can proudly tell you by now I have learnt some new Igbo slangs via Phyno’s Connect that I’m really digging right now, as a matter of fact I used a couple words from the song in a song I recently wrote.

So what am I saying in essence?? Any sensible music lover would know Phyno’s connect is among if not the best Hip Hop song sang in Igbo language in a very longtime. It has a sensible meaning, it’s not someone shouting “I am crazy, “I want to do Rihanna” and shi*ts like that. I think our Igbo musicians should start using the Igbo language a lot more in their music but when using it they should make sure it is a song with good rhythm and lyrics, I think via that way even many artists from other tribes will use Igbo language a lot more in their music and they will become hits.
Let’s take a look at Frank Edwards, Dude introduced us to some Igbo language via his good music and now lotta gospel artists are using these words in their music.

It is quite obvious the two most influential languages in our music industry at the moment are; Pidgin English and Yoruba language, these two languages are often used by many Nigerian artists of different tribes to make nationwide hits so I believe we can expand this via making more good music with our dialects.
So in conclusion I think we all should try making more good music with our dialects!!!

"Time for a Digital Detox" -By Tony Ogunlowo

 http://digitaldetox.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/digital-detox-retreats-fb.jpg


Well, here is another interesting and educative article by our popular writer Tony Ogunlowo, You should read what he's got for you today.
Time for a Digital Detox an article by Tony Ogunlowo

New Year, new resolutions.
There was a time when only a few influential people had a telephone, at home, in the neighbourhood. There was also a time when you had to wait for a thing called a letter to arrive by post before you knew what was happening in the lives of your friends and relatives in the far flung reaches of the world. There was also a time when you had to wait for the national news, at 9, to know what was going on in the country and elsewhere. There was also a time when you had to rely on whatever the newspapers churned out.

The advent of the digital age has made all these things relics of the past. We live in a wired global village, now, where everything is instantaneous.

Nowadays most people have at least one cellular phone and with our modern global telecommunication networks the user can be contacted anywhere they may be in the world. Social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter mean we can stay in touch with anyone in the world, in real-time, instead of waiting for the post to arrive.

We can see the news, now, in real-time as it happens because someone, out there, other than a journalist or news reporter, is recording events on their phones and relaying it through the web to countless recipients worldwide.

The invention of the smartphone has had us glued to our phones 247. We can’t wait to update our Facebook pages, send out a succession of messages on Twitter or catch up on the latest video clips on YouTube. This of course is in addition to our endless chatter.

We do everything online now; we shop, date, socialize and conduct all our business, personal and professional, online.

Some people have invariably become slaves to the digital world and the loss of their smartphones, tablets, laptops or access to the internet can lead to severe disruptions in their lives.

Sometimes too much information can lead to an information overload and sooner or later will lead to new ailments creeping into lives – repetitive strain injury, eye strain, chronic headaches and brain fatigue to just a few.

It’s time for a digital detox. Time to switch off the phones, tablets and laptops and pick up a good book and read. Time to come off Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the like and actually go out and meet people. Time to quit the lazy-armchair-online-shopping-thing and actually go out shopping in physical shops.

How would we cope if the internet and digital networks went down and we’re unable to use our cell phones or go online?

Our reliance on the digital world is becoming more and more overwhelming by the day and we need to take a step back to reduce our reliance.

To do a digital detox try and do the following as often as possible:

· 1, Get off Facebook and other social media platforms or use them sparingly. Try and do a simple thing like going out and actually meeting people. There’s more to life than a virtual world!

· 2, Keep internet usage to a minimum. This is a rule that should apply not just to kids but also adults. There are other forms of entertainment out there besides online gaming and gawking at a succession of funny YouTube videos. Books still exist, pick up one and read it. Get a new hobby, join a gym or go for a walk.

· 3, Have a specific time each day for checking emails, newscasts and blogs. I check my inbox first thing in the morning and late in the afternoon and not throughout the day as some do. This is time wasting.

· 4, Try and put your smartphone on ‘silent’ so the urge to look at it each time it beeps is greatly reduced.

· 5, Get rid of all the useless timewasting apps you have on your smartphones and tablets(-IPhone and IPad users are the most guilty ones here!). In a day you waste so much time fiddling with your apps and playing games.

· 6, Try and ban yourself from using your phone for extended periods of time. I know it’s important to stay in contact 247 but do you really need to stay glued to it all day long gossiping with Mama Mulika? No!

We should be Masters of the technology and not slaves to it. Recent tests have shown that our obsession with the digital world is detrimental to our health. Studies have shown that it leads to an increase in our stress levels. We feel fidgety and it affects our brains because we’re processing vast amounts of information all the time, not to talk of other digital world related ailments.

Take it easy and take a digital detox.

FULL NAME:           Phillip Kayode Moses

DATE OF BIRTH:    June 5, 1994

OCCUPATION:       Record producer, audio engineer

MARITAL STATUS:  Not Married




INTRODUCTION  

Pheelz, is a Nigerian music producer who produced the hit single by Olamide titled "Durosoke", Pheelz is credited to have produced all but one song in Olamide's Baddest Guy Ever Liveth album. He's also done quite some huge works for many other Nigerian artists, He is currently affiliated to YBNL Nation.

EARLY LIFE AND BACKGROUND  

Pheelz is a native of Ogun State but he was born and raised in Ojo, a local government area in Lagos State. He started music as a 10 year old singer in church. While in high school, he worked under I.D Cabassa in Coded Tunes, the record label where he met Olamide. In 2011, he featured vocals in a song off Olamide's Rapsodi album titled "I'm Going In".

He revealed he actually got the name Pheel from his chemistry Teacher so when he met Olamide Baddo back then in coded tunes and he added the Z to it.

Music has always been a passion for him, partly because he is from a family of musicians. His dad always used to play the guitar to him when he was growing up, It fueled the passion that is present in him today.
He spent most of his childhood playing the piano in church, although his parents told him he started singing when he was 6months old.
His parents reaction when he told them he was going to do music was not good but his pastor changed their mind. He stayed with him for 6months and gave him his laptop that was where he saw fruity loops for the first time.


CAREER AND LIFE  

He met Olamide when he was with ID Cabasa- they were both signed under him, They pretty much came up with the idea of YBNL while they were under Cabasa, and the rest is history.

His breakthrough as a record producer came in 2012 when he produced the chart-topping singles by Olamide titled "First of All" and "Fucking With The Devil" off his YBNL album. In 2013, Pheelz was listed in NotJustOk's "Top 10 Hottest Producers in Nigeria". He produced all but one song in Olamide's Baddest Guy Ever Liveth album, a move which made him gain grounds in the Nigerian music industry and won him a nomination at The Headies 2013.

In 2014, he was also nominated in the "Producer of the Year" category at the 2014 edition of The Headies and at the 2014 Nigeria Entertainment Awards. Pheelz has went on to produce and be credited in popular songs and albums including The Chairman by M.I, Ghetto University by Runtown and Seyi or Shay by Seyi Shay.
In 2015 also he produced almost all the songs in Olamide's new album which was another hit album from Olamide.

Speaking on people's comparison of him and fellow producer Young John:
"Young Jonn is a brother to me. There was a studio I used to work with- H-Factory studio. I met him when he came over one time and we had that connection. We started vibing and teaching each other things. I introduced him to Olamide and then Story for the gods came out, it blew like crazy. Since then, he has produced jams upon jams. I don’t know why people keep comparing both of us. We are family, we are YBNL, it’s not good to be comparing brothers. You feel me? "

His message for upcoming producers:
Determination and discipline are key factors. As a man thinketh in his heart, so he is. Believe in God and you can become whatever u wanna become. Stay true to your craft and it will pave ways for you.
