Made Kuti Promotes Peace In New Afrobeat Song, ‘No More Wars’ (Listen)

Grammy-nominated Afrobeat musician, Made Kuti, promotes peace with his brand-new stunning single, entitled ‘No More Wars.’

Made, the son of legendary Femi Kuti and grandson of iconic Fela Kuti, released ‘No More Wars’ from his upcoming studio album.

For the new song, Made teamed up with GMK and Sodi Marciszewer, the brilliance who recorded, mixed, and produced Fela’s last six albums for a solid production.

Made described his new single, ‘No More Wars,’ as a song that promotes positive reactions towards life.

“It’s about experiences I’ve had that taught me to reflect intentionally before I react. The lyrics are inspired by my father’s consistency in following his path despite dealing with an overwhelming amount of harsh, untrue, and deliberately cruel people inside and outside of his circle,” he said.

‘No More Wars’ is Made’s first offering since completing his tour in the United States with his father, Femi Kuti, and the Positive Force band.

PDP can win without Wike, Atiku tells party’s BoT

The dust over the presidential primary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the choice of Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as running mate by its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has not settled.

Although Atiku and Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike met yesterday in Abuja at the instance of the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT), led by Senator Walid Jibrin, a source said it did not lead to a truce.

The meeting was hosted by former Information and Culture Minister Prof. Jerry Gana at his residence.

At a meeting with BoT members on Wednesday, Atiku boasted that PDP can win next year’s election without many votes from Rivers State.

He said there was no cause for alarm if Wike did not want to fall in line with him.

Exuding confidence, Atiku recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari, who did not win Rivers State, relied on votes from Lagos, Kano and other strategic states to win the 2019 presidential poll.

He also said PDP ran into crisis because Wike allegedly monetised the presidential primary.

Wike, who was privy to what transpired at the BOT meeting, was said to have complained about Atiku’s recent comment about him.

A source said: “Wike joined issues with Atiku over his recent comments or pronouncements at the second meeting.

“He asked Atiku some questions:

”Did I tell you I want to be the next Minister of Petroleum Resources?
”Have I not been a minister before?
”Do you control Lagos and Kano, like President Muhammadu Buhari, if you don’t need Rivers?
”Have I asked for anything to support you?”
Atiku responded with “no” to most of the questions.

Throughout the meeting, Wike was busy with posers to clear some impressions from Atiku’s camp in public space. Obviously, he was uncomfortable with some comments attributed to Atiku and some of his strategists.

“But the presidential candidate of the PDP was calm in managing the situation.”

Sources said Atiku and Wike had been engaged in a hide and seek game over a session with the BoT.

However, BoT members have consistently pleaded with Atiku to reconcile with the Rivers governor.

Although the two leaders got invitation letters from the board, none of them was interested in a face-to-face meeting before yesterday.

Atiku and Wike had resorted to bitter verbal exchanges and name-calling in the media in the past few weeks.

Their loyalists had also picked the gauntlet, with the two camps launching media attacks against each other, leading to a gradual alienation of Wike and his loyalists by the PDP leadership.

The BoT had waded in on Wednesday, with the setting up of a reconciliation committee headed by Senator Jibrin.

It was also gathered that party stakeholders will empanel another committee comprising nominees from the Atiku and Wike camps to resolve the differences.

It was also learnt that whatever the committee agreed upon would be tabled before a larger meeting of stakeholders for approval and ratification.

“One takeaway from the meeting is that supporters of Atiku and Wike must stop the media war with immediate effect,” a party source said.

Worried by the protracted rift, BoT members had on Wednesday met with Atiku in Abuja behind closed doors.

A member of the BoT said: “When the two leaders did not honour our invitation, we decided to meet with Atiku on Wednesday. We will still have an audience with Governor Wike. Our main interest is to keep the party united before we start the campaign.

“Atiku took time to explain to us how he is ready to work with all party leaders and governors to enable PDP to regain power in 2023.

“He said since 1993, he has desired to contest and win the nation’s presidency without bitterness. He then asked: “‘How can a first-time presidential aspirant be so bitter for losing the primary? What of President Muhammadu Buhari who contested four times for the office?’

“Atiku also revisited the primary and how it was heavily monetised by Wike, but he said he still won.

“He urged the BoT members to prevail on Wike to work with him and others for the success of the party.

“He said otherwise, he will go ahead with the campaign without Wike and his team.

“He also said there are other PDP leaders from Rivers State who have bought into his candidacy, including Abiye Sekibo, ex-Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Austin Opara, Sen. Lee Maeba and others.”

The source quoted Atiku as telling the BoT members that “if Wike does not want to fall in line, we will go ahead with our campaign. One man alone does not make a state. Some PDP elders in the state are solidly with us.”

He added: “After all, President Buhari won the presidential election without many votes from Rivers State. He lost Rivers and still became the nation’s President after winning in Lagos, Kano and other strategic states.”

The BOT members, however, pleaded with Atiku to “allow more interventions to have a united campaign structure for the party’s victory.”

But Wike flew into Abuja yesterday afternoon to hold a session with his strategists before storming Gana’s residence.

But a source close to Wike’s camp said it was wrong to have accused Wike of monetising the presidential primary of the party.

He added: “We got to know all that transpired between Atiku and the BoT members. Wike did not monetise the PDP primary. Maybe, the Atiku group did. We don’t know what he is saying.”

The source said Wike rallied his friends, supporters and associates to boost the campaign of the PDP’s candidate with a huge amount in 2019.

“Wike has been a party man and he has never wavered in his commitment to his party’s return to power in 2023.

“If he did it for Atiku in 2019, he will do the same this time around.”

Libya instability responsible for banditry, terrorism in Nigeria – Buhari

President Buhari has blamed banditry and terrorism in Nigeria on the political instability in Libya.

Buhari said his administration was making efforts towards tackling banditry and terrorism in Nigeria.

He spoke while receiving the letters of credence from the new Canadian High Commissioner to Nigeria, Ambassador James Kingston Christoff and Ambassador of Mexico to Nigeria, Juan Alfred Miranda Oritz, at the State House in Abuja, on Tuesday.

The President also urged the international communities to collaborate with Nigeria in tackling insecurity.

He disclosed that his administration had made meaningful progress in the fight against insecurity.

Buhari said this effort was possible with the support of friendly countries, including Canada and Mexico

The political instability in Libya continues to fuel terrorism in the Sahel, West and Central African regions.

“Nigeria is not left out of the equation as we are fighting to rid our country of banditry, kidnapping, herder/farmer clashes and insurgency.

“We are, however, making meaningful progress with the support of friendly countries like yours to sustain this fight until we overcome these challenges,” he said.

Lately, the activities of banditry increased in Nigeria.

The Northern part of Nigeria has been the most affected by the situation

Payper Corleone Fifth Studio Album, ‘Fly Talk Only’ Is Out (LISTEN)

Bayelsa-born, Lagos-bred rapper Payper Corleone delivers another stunning tribute to the Nigerian hip-hop scene with his 5th album Fly Talk Only.

Supported by a clever ensemble of talented feature acts and producers, Fly Talk Only picks up from where he left off with 2021’s In Don We Trust; delivering a Godfather-style illustration of life on the fast lane.

Love, lust, and luxury form the centrepiece of the album, exploring these themes with a lacerating lyrical depth that investigates the complexities of these subjects.

The album opens with the eponymous track “Fly Talk Only”, where Corleone makes a bold reaffirmation of his street cred and humongous bank statements. He expands on the latter in many other songs (“Dior N Gucci”, “Ashluxe”, and “ILWTW”), examining his relationship with the paper chase and luxury.

On the other half of the album (“NMJV”, “She Rocks”, “Mob Wife”), he explores the lascivious tryst between love and lust, and the transactional vanity that binds them together.

This climaxes in the track “Mob Wife”, where he delivers an intimate, yet startling exposition on the intricacies of a romantic relationship between a gangster and his woman over chilling soul beats.

There are six producing credits on the album, as well as six featured acts. While 7thwonda and 22kthecloutgod put their blazing-blue flames on the trap beats of ‘Dior n Gucci’ and ‘She Rocks’ respectively, London-based vocalist Moelogo delivers a silky hook on ‘Sunmo Mi’; with fast-rising talent Quiries wrapping up the vocal energy of the album on the song ‘For Your Love.’

With another “Lyricist on the Roll” nomination in his bag of many critical nods, Fly Talk Only is a gritty but buoyant ride into the mind of one of Naija hip-hop’s most gifted pen slingers.
