If you ever thought R&B music couldn't thrive well in Nigeria, think again.
The latest kid on the block is none other than Praiz (real name Praise Adejo) and the young charmer has over the last 8 months shown nothing but sheer brilliance.
With the release of his two singles; the contemporary ballad 'I Love You' and the club friendly 'Jekalo', the X3M Music signer has grown from an ordinary cameo rookie to a top show performer. Headlining the Project Fame concert alongside US acts Brandy and Joe was a big deal for the singer this year.
He has finally released the video to 'I Love You' which was shot in Johannesburg and directed by Jonathan 'Josh' Clarke of Fiendish Productions.

K'Naan Discusses Nas' Comments About Africa And Explains Why Other Rappers Backgrounds "Can't Hold A Candle" To His

Exclusive: The Somali spitter expands on Nasir's breakdown of the divide between Africans and African-Americans and explains why fictionalized street talk can't compare to his real-life experiences.
A nation of millions may have been attempting to hold Public Enemy back during the height of Hip Hop’s protest era, but Chuck D never had to continuously defend 10 million of his fellow countrymen the way K’Naan has found himself having to over the last few years.

Never before has a Hip Hop artist found themselves in the position that the Somalia-born emcee has, forced to speak up against the misinformation that American media – both liberal and conservative – churns out about his homeland almost 20 years after the infamous “Black Hawk Down” incident every time that a story of Somali pirates attacking ships of western origin is used to frighten consumers of mainstream media into accepting the narrative that every Somali is a gun-toting savage seeking to rob and kill any foreigner who dare step foot in the east African nation. 

But K’Naan has bravely embraced his role as one of the most vocal advocates for his people. And while his occasional flirtations with more mainstream friendly tracks (ala the Nelly Furtado featured “Is Anybody Out There?” may have confused the casual listener into believing they were not hearing the sound of a revolutionary rhymer, further inspection of K’Naan’s impressively diverse catalog reveals an evocative emcee defiantly saying something when most of his contemporaries are content saying nothing, creating, as the title of his just-released EP states, a sound More Beautiful Than Silence.

The Toronto transplant spoke to HipHopDX about the meaning behind the rhymes of some of the selections from his first formal release since his 2009 breakthrough, Troubadour. K’Naan also shared his thoughts on distant relative Nas’ recent comments regarding the long strained relationship between Africans and African-Americans, and provided some illumination on the image American media outlets (and possibly even the American President) have propagated about his fellow Somalians. And finally, the artist who has witnessed firsthand the effects of famine and violence in what is one of the most dangerous and depressed regions of the world explained why gangsta posturing rappers “can’t really hold a candle to the kind of experiences I’m talking about.”

HipHopDX: I was just watching your video from a few years back for “Somalia” and it hit me that those couple bars – “A lot of mainstream niggas is yappin’ about yappin’ / A lot of underground niggas is rappin’ about rappin’ / I just wanna tell you what’s really crack-a-lackin’” – those lines are probably gonna prove to be the summation of this generation of Hip Hop, and hell, the way things are going, maybe the next generation in this Rap shit too.    

K’Naan: Yeah, well, that’s real, man. That’s kinda just the state of things right now. I hope not for too long, but …

DX: Now on “Somalia” you mention “the pirates terrorize the ocean,” and the news just broke today of a group of Somali pirates who allegedly kidnapped two western aid workers and held them for ransom being killed by U.S. Navy Seals in a raid. Can you offer any illumination on whether or not a situation like this is as the media is portraying it: that this is just another instance of depraved pirates? Or is there more to the story?

K’Naan: Well, I don’t know, it could very well be that it’s actually what is being said. There are a lot of people in the waters [though] that are coming out of real desperate situations. Anybody who’s out there risking their lives – These guys don’t know the ocean like that. They’re often from the city. And so to just get on a small, tiny little motorboat and to try to chase down ships to take over, knowing that there’s a good chance you’ll be killed either in the ocean or by whatever, that’s a desperate situation. It’s kind of suicidal really. [But] that’s what a lot of people are doing right now. A lot of people are coming from that kind of desperation. And so, it could very well be the story as is being told, but there are a lot of stories to be told in that world.        

DX: You noted on your new single with Nas, “Nothing To Lose”, “No, I don’t know pilots / Nigga, I know pirates,” and recently Nas himself was quoted in reference to situations like today’s news, saying, “There’s horror stories about Africa that’s out of this world … but I went there and I figured out that there’s been a lot of lies told to American people about what’s going on there.” I know you’re not an American citizen, but I just feel compelled to ask you if you think President Obama has proven himself to be part of that propaganda machine in regards to your homeland?

K’Naan: Well, listen, I think the propaganda machine is us, as human beings. I think we often seek out the kind of information that suits us best. So why we know about certain things that favor our own opinions is just really saying much more about the human being than it is about any kind of an organization or a governmental stance. If you are on HipHopDX and your information solely is based on simply what Hip Hoppers are saying and the rest is coming out of CNN, that’s really a choice that you make. If you broaden your horizons and your mind and you figure out, “Well, really there’s more to the world than what CNN is telling me, I could read up on something,” that’s another kind of a choice that we make. So I think really the responsibility – although some is with others – I would rather put the responsibility on myself and what I consume so that I have control over it.      

DX: Going back to that Nas interview, he was also quoted as saying, “One thing about us African-Americans and Africans, we don’t communicate. We don’t talk. We don’t see a reason to talk. We don’t even get along. There’s a lot of Africans that don’t like African Americans, at all. They look down on us; they got their own little racial names for us. We’ve been pulled apart, for years.” Anything you wanna add to what Nas said?

K’Naan: I think he’s right. And it’s an unfortunate circumstance. But you know, me and Nas talk, all the time. I talked to Nas yesterday. So I think the responsibility [to bridge that divide] is partly with us as artists. That’s why you got songs like “Nothing To Lose.” That’s why you got albums like the Distant Relatives album with Nas and Damian Marley. That’s why when me and Wale do something [it’s to] try to expand the scope of what people are thinking about with regards to Africa. That’s why it means something. The generations are changing and right now Africans and the way they think of African-Americans, or African-Americans and the way that they view Africans, is changing dramatically because we’re able to see each other a lot more, we’re able to communicate a lot more. The Internet has changed the distancing tools that have been used for so long [to divide us]. So the excuses are very shallow now.

FILM NEWS: Whitney Houston and Jordin Sparks discuss Sparkle remake

My how time has passed. 15 years ago, Whitney Houston was at the top of the game and starring in The Preacher’s Wife, her third Hollywood movie in fours years. Since then the iconic singer has faced many trials and tribulations surrounding her past drug addictions. Having recently made her musical comeback with the release of her now US certified platinum album I Look To You Houston, alongside former American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, is now set to make her silver screen return in the Salim Akil directed 2012 remake of the film Sparkle.
Speaking recently to People Magazine, Sparks expressed her excitement at Whitney’s return to the screen. ”She was so cool and very motherly toward me,” said the 22-year old Glendale, Arizona native of the star, who does indeed play her mother in the remake. “If I ever looked like I needed something, here she came saying ‘Are you okay?’”
“Part of the fun of making this movie is definitely the costumes and the hairstyles,” says Houston, 48, sharing her own enthusiasm. “The movie is set in 1963, and we had a great wardrobe, hair and makeup person and I loved wearing the outfits.”
Having spent much of her childhood idolising Houston, Sparks felt starring alongside the icon was a fantasy finally realised; ”I sang her songs into a hairbrush when I was little,” says Sparks. “Now she’s acting as my mom and scolding me. It was a dream come true.”
Sparkle is due to hit cinemas in August.


No stranger to the world of fashion, having oft appeared modelling for Armani and upon many a best-dressed list for her eclectic style, it has recently been announced that Rihanna will be starting her own Project Runway-inspired TV show.
Set to executive produce and appear in an original show on Sky Living HD (yes, here in the UK), the Bajan hottie will be searching Britain for the next generation of undiscovered designers, teaming up with Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts on the as yet unnamed show.
“I’ve always had a great love of fashion,” said Rihanna. “It’s a constant source of inspiration in my life, and is a big reason why I’ve grown into the person and artist I am today.”
She went on to say: “I have been very fortunate to work with some truly amazing designers and stylists throughout my career, and they have been instrumental in making sure my creative vision reaches the stage.
“I am excited to follow the journey of our aspiring contestants and see how their individuality influences their efforts during the course of the show.”
The show will air in summer and run for 10 weeks, during which the contestants will be challenged by the duo to create outfits for musicians and celebrities, with the final task of dressing Ri-Ri for her performance at Hyde Park’s 02 Wireless Festival.
If you think you’ve got what it takes, you can apply to take part in the show here.

The Internet was buzzing yesterday with news about Wikipedia and a host of other websites' blackout protests over the impending SOPA/PIPA legislation. Now, the anti-piracy issue has taken a turn with the recent news that rapper/producer Swizz Beatz is the acting CEO of Megaupload and that he's now facing a major lawsuit.

MTV reports that the multi-platinum producer for DMX and Jay-Z is now fighting a major lawsuit against Universal Music Group and his involvement with the popular storage and file sharing website. Last year, Swizz enlisted Diddy, Will.I.Am, Kanye West and a host of other musicians and media personalities to help film a promotional video in support his site, which has come under fire in the past for it application in the music and video piracy.

While at university, he hooked up with the Incubation Factory Crew and has recorded a lot of songs to his credit.

He is currently signed to Incubation Factory, a Record label/Label Imprint put together by Iredumare Opeyemi and Olusegun Oladapo.
SouthPaw steps to the mic with this song “Din Din Dara”  which was produced by another OAU protege Jchedda Laygiri.As he counts the society to be his influence, he paints the norms and the anomalies of the society on this joint. Din Din Dara basically means 'Enjoyment'. It was used in this song to mean that the Government enjoys at the expense of the suffering masses. He says on the chorus "Fly to Abuja while I walk to mile 12, waste Eva water while I drink ice water, Everybody suffer while they Din Din Dara". Listen up and enjoy!

Brandy & Monica duet “It All Belongs To Me” to be released in February

The reunion of R&B ‘sisters’ Brandy and Monica has been on a lot of lips over the past week or so with the photos of the two in the studio with producer, songwriter Rico Love​ hitting the net and now we have some solid news on the project. Their first collaboration since the infamous “The Boy Is Mine​” duet fourteen years ago is set to be released next month.

RCA Records​ have revealed the February 6th release date for the highly anticipated track entitled “It All Belongs To Me”. The Rico Love produced track is set to pick up where the two R&B singers left off. With “The Boy Is Mine” holding the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for 13 weeks in 1998 which led to a Grammy and being declared the best-selling song of that year, expectations are sky high for this new song.

Rico Love seems very confident in the track being a success as quoted: “I wanted to make sure I made it a classic R&B record, but I definitely wanted to make sure that it had enough appeal to cross over and become a Top 40 record.”

The new duet will feature on Monica’s upcoming album New Life, set to be released March 6, and also Brandy’s untitled RCA/Chameleon Records debut set to be on it’s way later in the year

Beats By Dre and Monster end partnership

Popular headphone and sound accessory creators Beats By Dre and founder Dr. Dre have decided not to renew its five-year contract with Monster when it ends late this year.

According to the partnership, which debuted its first headphones in 2009 under an exclusive license agreement, has reportedly turned sour over financial terms and who, Monster or Beats, should receive more credit over the incredible international success of the headphones. Although Dre and fellow Beats business partner Interscope Geffen A&M Chairman Jimmy Iovine are the proverbial faces of the line its Noel Lee, Monster chief executive and Monster as a company, who feel they should be given credit.

“They [Dre and Jimmy Iovine] wanted to do speakers and I said, ‘The new speaker is the headphone,’ ” says Lee.Beats By Dre are already preparing for a future without Monster with plans to expand into TVs and specialised audio gear for athletes. “We have very big ambitions for Beats beyond headphones,” says Iovine. “Music has got to succeed on the phone or else the record industry will never thrive.”

Monster will be releasing eight lines of headphones to compete with its former partner Beats reign in the headphone market. (View a couple below)
