NIGERIAN CELEBRITIES; DRAWING THE PUBLICITY LINE...MORE DRAMA TO COME

It is no longer news that the year 2016 started on a very amusing note on and off the social media as our dear Olamide and Don Jazzy wrote and enacted their own definition of celebrity drama...Some people have termed it as a PR stunt and yes they have apologized to their respective fans and also reconciled but the deed has been done...How do you think people will define your personality afterwards...? Now, I am asking every Nigerian celebrity and that includes some of the people who also got a public hit like Miss Di'Ja who was apparently rejoicing like a little girl while her 'daddy' threw jibes at his fellow artiste...unfortunately, a beloved voice of the street, one in whom most citizens are well pleased lyrically...

This scenario has actually thrown more spotlight on the two brands but it is out of place when publicity comes via jibes, fights and unnecessary tweet drama..If you want to be daring, please think of Derenle...That is actually a PR stunt..I do not know why Cynthia Morgan and her entire team was not arrested, banned or something when her picture with a weed carrying a baby was posted online...That is actually very inappropriate. Recently, WizKid and Dammy Krane displayed their own at a popular club in Lagos over the ownership right to a particular lyrics used by WizKid...Why did it take Dammy Krane this long...? Was he inspired by the Headies drama or they were just simply induced by alcohol..A fight actually occurred with some injuries but interestingly, apologies to fans always follow...You do not owe me an apology...simply sue WizKid to court or something!

I think some of our celebrities are just cowards...thumbs up to those who pull off an egg plant, semi nudes, falling off stage stunts and other personified moves...I feel it is better off than fighting or creating unnecessary rivalry in the real world...It has become a thing of argument around Lagos now as debates are on as to the sustenance of the YBNL and MAVINS brand...well, the result might come out lyrically or how about they meet surprisingly at an hang out...what do you think will happen when a slight joke is thrown as a sort of reminiscing over the drama between their 'daddies'...

Where are my Nollywood people...? It seems they have relaxed about their own PR moves and the music industry seems to be having one news everyday...Someone told me they are all making millions daily...that is why they have strength for publicity moves...There is a certain level your brand gets to, that requires you to be mannered in your approach and everyday relations with people...do not let yourself be fooled to a level of provocation...This is Nigeria and not Europe or America....I really cannot justify how publicity can be played out well over there because I have not been there...I am not sure If some personalities stood up to motivate Kanye West when he was throwing jibes at Taylor Swift...but the 'who cares' spirit simply drives some of our celebrities to stand up and encourage a childish act beaming live...

We should expect more drama this year..It is very certain as some people have launched the year that way...Let each respect another...If you are upset about something as a musician, simply write a song and sing about it maturely without mentioning a name and same goes for actors or movie producers...Our libraries need more literature books...that might help shape our society, you never can tell...
