By Adedapo Adesanya
Davido Music Worldwide (DMW) has terminated the deal with Mr Sanni Goriola Wasiu, otherwise known as Lil Frosh, and has also severed ties with him over allegations of beating his girlfriend.
The record label, owned by David Davido Adeleke, in a press statement on Tuesday, stated that it considers domestic violence as grievous act and will do everything possible to stand with victims of domestic violence and after an internal investigation, it’s cutting ties with Lil Frosh.
The statement noted, “There is no excuse for the actions of Lil Frosh and we understand that there is nothing that can be said or done with to take away the insensitivity shown.
“Upon internal investigations carried out by the label, we are left with no option than to terminate the recording contract that exists between the label and Lil Frosh, effective immediately. We hereby immediately sever all affiliations with Mr Sanni Goriola Wasiu a.k.a Lil Frosh.“
The social media had been agog on Monday when the brother and manager of the musician’s girlfriend, Gift Camille, called out the young artiste for assaulting his sister.
“@thacutegeminme my client and sister has suffered enough!!! We have kept quiet enough @lhilfrosh You have done enough damage for almost a year now, you have been in a relationship with my sister and client and you have brought her nothing but horror, pain and disaster,” he wrote.
“I remember the first time I found out about you beating her on Monday 22nd of June @official_lyta team reached out to me wanting to use her for his music video shoot but she kept on saying you didn’t like it, not knowing you had beaten her to pulp and she couldn’t face the world with so much bruises. Their team begged to double the money but she couldn’t take the job because of you.”
Business Post understands that the rapper is yet to release any statement as regards the matter.
Excitement as Nigerian Idol Season 8 Live Show Begins
By Modupe Gbadeyanka
All is now set for the commencement of the Nigerian Idol Season 8 Live Show this weekend after the judges chose 10 contestants for the stage.
The process started last December with entries received from across the country and reached its high point when the trio of Obi Asika, D’Bank, and Simi selected 10 budding singers from the 29 who made it to the theatre week.
The live show is the crucial phase of Nigerian Idol, as the fate of the contestants is in the hands of the voting public.
Savvy Henry, Constance, Goodness, Abraham, Quest, Precious Mac, Victory, Reigny, Ose Daniel, and Chisom were selected for the final stage after five weeks of audition and theatre week performances.
Performances on the live show will be judged by the viewers, who hold the power to retain and evict contestants through their votes.
Viewers can follow their favourite contestants on Nigerian Idol season 8 by tuning in to Africa Magic Showcase, Africa Magic Urban, and Africa Magic Family every Sunday at 7 pm.
Judges Pick 10 Contestants for Nigerian Idol Season 8 Live Show
By Aduragbemi Omiyale
The ongoing Nigerian Idol Season 8 will take a new twist this weekend as 10 contestants will begin the race to clinch the coveted prize with the help of the voting public.
Before now, the judges for the show, Simi, Obi Asika, and D’Banj, have had the final say on the thousands of budding singers that applied for the programme.
But from this weekend, it would be the turn of the viewers to seal the fate of the contestants. The three judges picked 10 contestants from the 29 that made it to the final stage of Theatre Week after doing their final solo performance.
The aspiring music stars would be expected to sing and impress the viewers with their performances during the Nigerian Idol Season 8 live show on Sunday, May 28, 2023.
The first pick for the final top 10 was Henry Savy, who impressed the judges with his Para performance of Davido, as 17-year old Constance stole the show as she melted hearts with Positions by Ariana Grande, while Precious Mac thrilled and filled the theatre with singer Simi’s Ayo.
The judges also selected Victory, Daniel Ose, Goodness, Abraham, Reigny and Quest after singing No Shaking by 2baba, Catch me if you can by Adekunle Gold, About damn time by Lizzo, Under the Influence by Chris Brown, Karma by Summer Walker, and Flowers by Miley Cyrus, respectively.
The last man standing, Chizo, narrowly escaped this time around, unlike last season when he was sent off at a crucial moment.
Meanwhile, 19 contenders – Arite, Sapphire Whinnas, Amaka, Akinwande, Mura’s twin brother (Mina), Eloehi, Daniel, Sir Danny, Soultunes, Busayo, and nine others were tactfully eliminated from the moving train as it could only accommodate the 10 best acts this time around.
While commenting, Ms Aransiola Biola, who is the Assistant Brand Manager of the sponsor of the show, Bigi, said the support was to help discover and nurture talent across the country and the African continent and a demonstration of its mantra that it is for every moment, connecting consumers through worthy platforms.
“We are excited to sponsor Nigerian Idol for three consecutive years, the Seasons 6 and 7, due to our love for promoting the entertainment industry and to support the next generation of musical talents,” she stated.
“This show is a great opportunity for contestants to showcase what they have as they unlock new opportunities in the music industry,” she added.
