Live Band Star, SB Live, Signs New Management Deal ; Commences Weekly Gig in Ikeja

One of Nigeria’s most sought after medley artistes, Seun Bankole, popularly known as SB Live, has signed a new management deal with Massimo Entertainment owned by renowned entertainment entrepreneur, Layinka Oyedeji.

Oyedeji was masked musician, Lagbaja’s manager, for over a decade.

According to Oyedeji, “Massimo Entertainment’s decision to formally sign SB Live to a management deal was based on the awareness that as an artiste, he is growing exponentially, and we feel he needs to concentrate more on churning out good music while we help him coordinate the business aspect including new projects and tours.
More so, we understand the industry and its intricacies and can help him navigate seamlessly.”

Describing Bankole as one of the most talented live band artistes he has ever worked with, and he has worked with quite a few, Oyedeji traced their relationship to over a decade ago.

“SB Live was a diamond in the rough when I spotted him as a back-up artiste around 2006/7. I knew there was something about him and went ahead to help him set up a band and began performing at The Place (G.R.A, Ikeja).

In 2010, he moved to Troy Lounge (Ogba, Lagos) which became the platform that launched him into the big time. So, we know his drive and determination, we know what a bigger brand he can be and we are set to help him achieve his dreams.”

In the intervening years, SB has evolved into one of Nigeria’s in-demand bands, performing a medley of contemporary and vintage Nigerian and foreign songs from Fuji, juju, blues, country to afro beats and Apala among others at high profile weddings and such ceremonies at home and abroad.

In fact, he has toured the United States of America twice in the last two years. He has also churned out a couple of mixtapes and singles, the latest being ‘Garden Party’, which video was shot by Storiesbyzeez and is set for release this week.

As part of the new deal, the gangling artiste and his SB Live Crew will commence a weekly gig at upscale bar and lounge, 2G1, in Adeniyi Jones, Ikeja, from Wednesday, November 7th.

Oyedeji concluded, “With this new gig, we would transform the Wednesday nightlife in Ikeja for good. SB has done it before and he would do it again. Now, his fans know where to connect with him on a weekly basis. It is a new chapter for both parties.”

K1 To Sponsor Kid Artist’s Education

In what looks like a divine arrangement, Fuji Music Legend, King Wasiu Ayinde Mashal, popularly known as K1 De Ultimate has thrown his weight behind Oluwatobi Ilelolawa, the 12 year-old Primary Six pupil, who sketched President Muhammadu Buhari’s portrait with pen (Biro) without alteration few days ago.

Less than an hour after THISDAY Newspapers’ Brands and Marketing Editor, Raheem Akingbolu published the story of the boy on his Facebook page, K1, through his publicist, Kunle Rasheed, reached out to the writer. K1, the father of modern Fuji Music said he was touched by the story of the boy and offered to sponsor his post-primary education to the university level.

K1 described the boy as a raw talent that must be guided, supported and not allowed to waste.

“I was touched when the story was brought to my notice and I see it as one of those things one can do to impact the society. Education is key to success and who knows the boy we are talking about may be a governor or President in the making. He may become another Ben Enwonwu, Bruce Onobrakepya, Wole Soyinka or an international Artist of repute in the future. If the society fails to give him the needed support now, posterity will not forgive us. This is the time to lift a hand and groom a talent for posterity.”

Meanwhile, arrangements are being made to introduce the promising artist to his new benefactor and perfect ways through which his mentorship and sponsorship would be handled.

Na Una Papa Get Stroke, No Be Me — Nollywood Actor Mr Ibu Blasts Rumor Peddlers

Nollywood comic actor, John Okafor, popularly known as Mr Ibu, has debunked trending social media reports that he has been plagued with stroke.

The new media was awash on Thursday with reports that the 57-year-old iconic actor was hit by a mysterious stroke shortly after he returned from a trip to Owerri, Imo State.

The President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, was even quoted as saying that “the actor was fast recovering”.

The sad news generated deep concerns from industry watchers, especially fans of the actor, calling for prayers and support for him.

However, in a latest video published on his Instagram Page, Mr Ibu, who is seen “loving up with his wife”, flayed the stroke report, saying he has handed those peddling the rumour to God.

He said: “Oh God! People are saying that I have stroke, that I am down with stroke. Why?

“How can you announce somebody’s sickness and you have many, you don’t even announce one.

“I don’t have any stroke please. This is my wife, my humble wife. Well, we hand over everything to God.

“I have been receiving calls from across the world, and I don’t know who is spreading this false news about me. I don’t know what they are saying. Na their papa get stroke.”
