See what breast enlargement did to Debbie

Debbie, had her breasts enlarged 15 years ago when she worked in the adult entertainment industry, increasing her chest size five times to a J cup. But just days after the surgery, she developed an infection in her right breast, and the surgeon who conducted the operation was nowhere to be found. Seeking new medical help, a different doctor agreed to remove the infected implant and skin but only operated on one breast leaving her with one J cup and one smaller boob

She says: "It looks like someone hacked me up. "When I look in the mirror I see this grotesque image, I feel like a monster. I haven't found a surgeon willing or able to help me."

Debbie, who lives with her partner Billy, has barely left the house for 15 years. She adds: "If someone can help me it will change my world and help me feel like a new person."

Match Report: Real Madrid 2 – 0 Borussia Dortmund. Agg 3-4

image
Borussia Dortmund held on to book their place in the UEFA Champions League final despite a 2-0 defeat in the second leg of their semi-final with Real Madrid as the Bundesliga side progressed 4-3 on aggregate.Late strikes from Karim Benzema and Sergio Ramos set up a dramatic finale in Santiago Bernabeu but Robert Lewandowski’s four-goal haul in the first leg last week proved decisive in securing Dortmund’s place at Wembley on May 25.
Real exploded out of the blocks and carved out an excellent chance with only four minutes on the clock when Mesut Ozil stole possession after some slack Dortmund defending on the edge of their own box before releasing Gonzalo Higuain into the area, but the striker’s shot was saved by the legs of Roman Weidenfeller.A dramatic 60-second spell saw Lewandowski volley straight at Diego Lopez after being given far too much space by the Real Madrid defence, with play then switching to the other end where Cristiano Ronaldo fired against Weidenfeller when similarly placed.
Dortmund saw key man Mario Gotze limp out of the action in the 14th minute and their defence was opened up again immediately after as Ozil was released by Higuain, but the Germany midfielder dragged his shot wide of the near post when he had time to advance or pick a pass.Having weathered the early storm, Dortmund gradually gained a foothold in the game and the remainder of the opening period passed with few further defensive alarms, although referee Howard Webb was kept busy by some physical tactics, with Fabio Coentrao going into the book for a nasty challenge on Lewandowski.
The Poland striker had two glorious chances to put the tie to bed early in the second period only to blaze over the top when well placed in the box before smashing an even better opportunity against the underside of the crossbar seconds later after being played in by Marco Reus.Jose Mourinho made a double change in the 57th minute with Higuain and Coentrao making way for Benzema and Kaka in a bid to find a way through the Dortmund backline which was being superbly marshalled by Mats Hummels.
Diego Lopez then made an outstanding stop to keep Real alive, plunging to his right to block Ilkay Gundogan’s close-range shot after Marco Reus’ quick-thinking had opened up the home defence, while Lewandowski felt he was pulled back as he headed wide soon after.Ronaldo, who had been largely subdued by his own high standards, worked a yard of space for himself on the edge of the Dortmund box with 20 minutes to go only to toe-poke his shot over Weidenfeller’s bar, with Kaka stabbing an effort the wrong side of the post moments later.
Lewandowski saw another shot blocked by Michael Essien after being found by Reus with Real belatedly breaking the deadlock eight minutes from time when Ozil’s teasing centre was converted at close range by Benzema.After being so assured for so much of the game, Dortmund were suddenly struggling to cope with the waves of Real attacks, with Ramos being set up by Benzema to fire high into the net in the 88th minute, but there was to be no dramatic leveller despite six minutes of added time.

Kim and Kanye Ask For Charity Donations Instead of Baby Gift Registry


http://www.usmagazine.com/uploads/assets/articles/53435-kim-kardashian-loves-that-kanye-west-is-an-older-man/1339792534_kanye-west-kim-kardashian-467.jpg
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting their first child this July and with speculations flying about the kinds of gifts the baby should expect, the couple have made the decision not to have a gift registry. They are telling friends not to buy them baby gifts. Instead, Kim and Kanye are reported to be requesting that any donations be made to the Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. The hospital has already corroborated this news and thanked the couple in a statement;


"Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago would like to extend its sincerest gratitude to Kim Kardashian and Kayne West for their thoughtfulness and support of the hospital. We wish them all the best in the upcoming arrival of their baby. Funds donated on behalf of Kardashian and West will be directed to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Fund which will help care for the most critically-ill babies and their families."

So to Kim's die-hard fans - don't give or buy gifts for any baby registries bearing the Kimnye name, they are definitely fake.

"I had no idea he was gay" - Jason Collins ex-girlfriend of 8 years speaks..

How can you date a guy for eight years and not know that he's into men? Well, it's very possible. That's exactly what happened to Carolyn Moos, Jason Collins' ex-fiance. Jason made history yesterday by becoming the first active NBA player to come out as gay. Before then he was living as a straight man. He dated Carolyn, a '6''6' female basketball star for eight years and even proposed to her. In 2009, a few months to their wedding, Jason called it off and ended things with her. Carolyn told TMZ today that she never once suspected that Jason was gay while they were dating and only found out this past weekend when he revealed everything to her before coming out to the world and also told her his homosexuality was the real reason he ended things with her in 2009. Carolyn told TMZ:
"It's very emotional for me as a woman to have invested 8 years in my dream to have a husband, soul mate, and best friend in him. So this is all hard to understand."
"I care about Jason tremendously and only want the best for him. I want Jason to be happy for a lifetime and stay true to who he really is, inside and out."

"Please, forgive me..I never planned on marrying more than one wife"-Solomon Akiyesi

You all remember Nollywood actor Solomon, who was disgraced by his wife Lilian during his secret church wedding  to his mistress, Uloma ? He has opened up on his side of the story..

Read Below...as published by Daily Sun
•I loved Ezinne, my first wife, but she was deceitful, greedy
• If I hadn’t left Lillian, my second wife, I would have committed suicide


• Uloma gives me true love, inner joy
On Saturday, April 13, Nigerians were shocked when the supposed wedding of Nollywood actor, Mr. Solomon Akiyesi, to Ms Uloma Agwu, turned into a major scandal in Lagos.

The ‘wedding’, which was taking place at the Overcomer’s World Outreach in Aguda, Surulere, was truncated when Solomon’s authentic wife, Lillian, stormed the church with some family members, creating a scene and accusing the groom-to-be of abandoning her at home in Port Harcourt while he was busy, plotting an illegal wedding in Lagos.

It took the intervention of policemen to restore sanity. The wedding was eventually cancelled by the General Overseer of the Overcomers Church World Outreach, Bishop N.E. Moses.

Since then, many Nigerians have taken to the social media, raining unprintable invectives on the Nollywood actor, who was said to have been married twice before his latest failed attempt. In a chat with Daily Sun, Solomon tells his own story, explaining why he decided to take the actions that he took, concerning his marital life. Excerpts: Over the last one week, hell has been let loose on me.

I’ve not only suffered verbal attacks, but also vituperations and near fisticuffs, all because of another futile attempt of mine at my journey towards achieving that which I honestly and passionately desire – a peaceful home and family. Social network sites and blogs have been awash with how I left Lilian, my “pregnant” wife, to marry Uloma, my Lagos “mistress” whom they also claimed was pregnant for me. Nothing can be farther from the truth.

Only a mad or cursed man would simply leave his pregnant wife and elope with another one. And lest I forget, I urge you, as you read this, to have an open mind to listen to that which is true instead of taking sides and jumping into wicked conclusions with its attendant wicked insults and uncouth commentaries about how Solomon is running his life and how he is not. I’m not asking for pity or trying to buy anybody’s love at this time.

This is my life. If at my age I don’t know what I want, then I may just remain the dumb ass that I’ve been called over and over again. I don’t think I need anyone to give me any lecturing on how I should exercise my privileges.

For the record, I never planned on marrying more than one wife. And unlike the serial husband I’ve been labelled, I had dreamt and planned a lovely home and family.

And my quest for this dates back to 2003 after I had moved into Port Harcourt. I soon settled down with Ezinne, my university days girlfriend, whom I ran into in Port Harcourt during her National Youth Service. As fate had it, we couldn’t help reliving old times and one thing led to another. One fateful, rainy Thursday evening in October, 2002, Ezinne came to inform me that she was pregnant.

It was as far as I was concerned, a devastating blow to the new life I was living; rap music, cars, money and women. So, I told her the pregnancy was unacceptable to me. Besides, I only just started working and needed stability. But months later, Ezinne was to inform me that she was carrying a baby girl.

And knowing my attachment to baby girls and not wanting to ever have a baby outside wedlock, I repented and changed my thuggish ways and asked her to marry me, more so that I was mature enough in every ramification. Or so I thought.

And so, sometime in April, 2003, I hired a hall and invited a pastor to come officiate at my marriage with Ezinne and bless our rings. All done, we went home and started as husband and wife. God, the creator, knew how glad I was and looked forward to a happy home. However, five days after that marriage, I called my new wife on my way from work to ask what was up for dinner and she told me she had been in the hospital.

I rushed to the hospital and was told by Ezinne that she lost the baby. I got her discharged and took her home. But I was completely broken at the loss of a baby I had expected so much. Four days later, I asked my wife if she actually saw the dead baby. She responded by saying the doctor brought it but she gave instruction for it to be buried because she could not behold the sight. Instinctively, I called the doctor – both to thank him and to confirm because he wasn’t around when I went to pick her home. After thanking the doctor, I asked of the sex of my dead baby.

The doctor didn’t talk for like six seconds. I asked him the same question again and he said he’s been restless in his spirit and that he could no longer keep the fact that there was no baby inside Ezinne and that nothing like miscarriage happened in his hospital. I challenged him again and asked if he was not the same person, who confirmed her pregnant and that Ezinne had been attending antenatal in his hospital.

He responded that he had not set his eyes on Ezinne since October of the previous year. Meanwhile, Ezinne had always taken money from me for antenatal and had even shopped for the baby! It then became clear to me that this was a fluke all together.

Sadly enough, Ezinne denied any wrongdoing. For three years, I exposed opportunities for Ezinne to simply tell me the truth but she never took advantage of any of the opportunities. Alas! She was not pregnant. I decided to investigate myself and took her for HSG where it was discovered that there were no fallopian tubes in her and that there was evidence of previous surgery of the uterus. I independently probed further and found out with evidence that Ezinne had a life-threatening abortion in 1992 that resulted in the rupture and subsequent removal of her womb and tubes.

My biggest pain was not what I found out but the fact that Ezinne hid all this from me all these years and was still being economical with the truth even when confronted with hard evidence! In frustration, I moved out of the house but not before taking her to her mum in search of the truth.

Even the mum corroborated what Ezinne gave as excuse for the scar that runs from her navel down to her pubic region, i.e. she was operated upon due to menstrual irregularities. I then decided to stay out for good. While I was out, my relationship with Lillian whom I had known years earlier grew.

I was always going to see her in Enugu. I then got me another apartment and Lillian came around quite often too. Gradually Lillian grew from that little girl I was merely helping in her schooling, into a mature, witty and intelligent young woman. So, having taken my people to Ezinne’s place for the dissolution of the marriage – since we did only traditional marriage – I proposed to Lillian.

And, in 2007, we proceeded to the registry for marriage. And that was the day her father started troubling me. He insisted Lillian was not supposed to go home with me. For two years, he cut communication with me. Shortly after the marriage, my businesses ran into a crises and my entire life nose-dived.

There was tremendous loss in my finances. In my travail, Lillian’s father went to the police and told them to deal seriously with me because I was an “irresponsible son-in-law”. When the challenges kept mounting and seeing my life was at risk after I was badly shot, I left town to sojourn elsewhere. In 2010, I gradually re-emerged and we started finding our footing again.

Even though I tried to settle down again, I found that the centre could no longer hold, as Lillian had metamorphosed into a nag and had acquired a fire tongue with which she talked me down and reigned curses on me at any little provocation. There was no week we didn’t have a major fight, whether I was home or not.

At some point, she became religious. And having found her way into Winners Chapel, she suggested to me one day that it was necessary we took our marriage to God since we hadn’t a proper wedding. She said her church pastors were willing to help in blessing our marriage so there could be a turnaround. To this, I obliged. She said she would love for us to wear wedding costumes for the purpose of photographs. To this I also consented. And so, to Winners Chapel we went and were blessed and certificated.

But it was as if that blessing was what someone was waiting for before they would blow the whistle that would usher me into the hall of pain. Lillian became insatiable.

You would see tiny ingredients of marriage only when I could ensure her comfort. Once Lillian’s comfort was compromised, she would lampoon me and tell me my life history in graphic details and lecture me on what Mr. A and B have done for their wives that I’m not able to do.

It’s even worse when I try to remind her of the recent past that I laboured tenaciously to keep her happy. Once she told me that there was nothing I had done in the past that anybody couldn’t have done. Imagine sacrificing all you’ve got, including almost your life, for someone who would tell you it’s no big deal and that any other person could have done what you did. And then, suddenly, she wanted me to quit my acting career or she would divorce me. My phones were always her best companions at night. If she was not reading my texts, she was in my facebook or BBM.

I had no peace. My best moment was whenever I had to leave home for work. And after work I never wanted to go back home. On a trip back home sometime ago, I was praying that my aircraft should crash and I die instead of going home. Even when I was driving home, I was under strong temptation to ram into oncoming vehicles instead of going home.

It was either that a long list of demand would be waiting for me or an equally longer list of questions about whom I had been online with and whom I had been calling and not calling.

Then on the side was a supposed father-in-law, who claimed he regretted the marriage because he wasn’t getting anything from it and that I only came to destroy the love that existed in their family before the marriage. So, my joy knew no bounds when Lillian told me last year that she was pregnant. For me, it was a good thing. Maybe the baby would take her attention away from me at last. Then the heat started again. I must provide N2 million for her to deliver her baby, even though she knows my income and its source. When her pressure got to a head and to avoid the same road I travelled with Ezinne, I took Lillian to a gynaecologist. A scan was run on her and the result was declared before the two of us that she was not pregnant.

This was after she told me that she had done an independent scan and that she was carrying triplets! Even with the medical confirmation, Lillian never stopped her push for N2 million and money for baby shopping. I ended up suffering a partial stroke in January. Yet she would wake me up at 2am to ask me of my plans to raise N2 million for her, even while I was bedridden with stroke.

I knew then that I was going to die in that marriage and had to do something about it. Ladies and gentlemen, this is about my life. If what greeted the Internet and press was that I died, trying to please Lillian and my marriage, people would still insult me and ask why I didn’t take a walk. And taking a walk I tried to do but I did not do it right.

I tried to skip due process to avoid hurting anyone. More so, I did not have the political and emotional will to ask for divorce. Pray, people, divorce is not like going to a grocery store where you go to pay your money and come back with a bag full. What would have been my ground for divorce? I should also confess that I could not find an answer to what would happen to Lillian if I asked her to go because I was more than a husband to her.

So, I foot-dragged to the point of taking the easy way out. And the easy way is not usually the best way as I found out on Saturday, April 13.

Uloma did not just jump into the picture to “snatch” Solomon from Lillian. Uloma has been my friend since 2006. We met again in 2009 at the peak of my business crisis and have been seeing each other afterwards. Candidly, I was swept away by the love, understanding and the peaceful disposition Uloma proffered even as a friend, far from the opposites I was getting back home. The way Uloma treated me was the exact desires any man longed for in a wife. So, I was always running to her whenever Lillian lit her fires.

So, I asked myself why I couldn’t marry her. Far from the evil rumour that I wanted to marry Uloma because of her money, I wanted to marry Uloma to fill a vacuum in her life and make her happy and fulfilled because this woman with a heart of gold who has impacted many lives deserved to be happy.

If that was what I could ever do to plant some comfort in her life. If there was going to be any immediate gain for me, it would have been peace of mind and its attendant long life, not her money or any physical or material gains. I’m not a lazy man.

Apart from being an actor, I have been in business for almost fifteen years. Years back, when I poured millions of naira on exotic cars and a posh house in Port Harcourt, Uloma was a seventy thousand naira recovery staff in Sterling Bank. Today, even if Uloma gave me all her salary from where she presently works, it won’t be enough to put Internet credit in my tablets and phones. Someone even posted that I said I would have ‘hammered’ if I had married Uloma.

What could I possibly gain? Uloma wasn’t frustrated to the point of desperation to pay a man to marry her. There was no award for anyone who married her. She does not own an estate or anything willed to her by anyone that I was running after. Uloma is not the daughter of any rich man or top politician. She’s as much a hustler as I am.

Ok, yes, sincerely, maybe I actually would have ‘hammered’ long life, happiness, inner joy, a sense of being loved and long life. I also would have ‘hammered’ having her sisters as my sisters because they love me like their own brother – a far cry from what my own people give me.

If I had married Uloma, I know I would have had a good burial whenever I died because I’ve always been scared that at my level of loneliness, whenever I die, my corpse would probably have decomposed before my people would find me. I beg to be loved and appreciated. Nobody to call my own.

No one ever cared about me. I have always been alone and hardworking too. From way back, my joys, my sorrows I have always swallowed alone. But Uloma was the only person who truly listened to my heart and understood where I was coming from. So to say any of my failed marriages was for money is simply stupid and unreasonable. The first car Ezinne ever drove and financing for her first attempt at business all came from me.

Lillian was not born with a silver spoon. Her father is only a retired naval officer and the last time I checked he had no wealth ascribed to his name. On her 18th birthday, I bought Lillian an exotic Corolla car. At 300 level in school, I gave her a Mercedes Benz.

Then she graduated with an LS400 Lexus. This is apart from a lush apartment and school bills that God used me to help her take care of. So, who amongst these would I have married for money? Uloma stood out because she’s shared my pain even when it was because of me and that explains why it was a difficult task telling her Lillian was still in my tracks.

I couldn’t have deliberately gone out of my way to hurt Uloma, because that will be simply committing suicide. Hurting Uloma is like waging war against a nation. Is it her legion of admirers I will have to contend with or her nation of die-hard lovers who will be tumbling over each other to get a pound of flesh?

I wouldn’t give hurt for the love and hope Uloma and her family gave me. Unfortunately the same scandals I thought I was preventing by not doing what everyone is saying I would have done is now the same thing staring me in the face, and everyone is worse hurt.

And above all, my own life is now seriously at risk because I feared hurting anyone. I ask all concerned to please sheathe their swords of anger and find it in their hearts to forgive me. I will make restitution as much as the mercy of God permits me. It’s never too late to begin again as far as God keeps us all alive.

I’m a man on a mission for a peaceful marriage, a good home and family life. I guess my desperation took good reasoning off me. Again, I am humbly and truly sorry. I thank my friends who have stood by me through this trial. Your comforting words are like lights on my dark path.

And for the judgmental few, I urge you; work with the truth while the Almighty fixes that which went wrong in my life.

Former Nigerian lawmaker, Dino Melaye, has sued ex-Governor Ibrahim Idris of Kogi State over alleged corruption, looting and massive misappropriation of state funds.

The court ruling was handed down last year.Mr. Melaye’s lawsuit commenced yesterday in a Lokoja High Court, with I. Akubo appearing as the former governor’s defense lawyer.Mr. Idris was removed from office alongside four other governors last year after a ruling by the Supreme Court held that they were enjoying an illegally extended tenure.
The other governors affected by the ruling were Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State, Timipre Sylva of Bayelsa, Aliyu Wamakko of Sokoto and Liyel Imoke of Cross River State.

Which Of These Nollywood Actress Rocked The Bald Head Best?

Since Nollywood actress Chika Ike shaved offher hair for a movie role for a reported N5million price, there’s been much debate about what the big deal is about for shavingoff hair.
Before Chika Ike, quite a few Nollywood actresses have had either the cause or guts to do same.

Reasons Why Nigerian Music Artiste Don’t Last With Their Record Labels

To say the music industry in Nigeria is presently booming like never before is an understatement. Many artistes are being introduced almost on weekly basis. Samuel Abulude writes on the mutual relationship between artistes and their record labels and examines why most Nigerian musicans don’t last on their record lebels
In the last ten years, Nigerian music industry experienced a global appeal that makes other African countries grow in envy and make international artistes want to do collaborations with their Nigerian counterparts. This is as a result of the ability of Nigerian artistes to infuse their traditional flair to the hip hop genre of music not forgetting the price paid by great Nigerian artistes who brought the world’s attention to Nigerian music and most are now reaping the fruits of their labour.
The music industry has a great potential of being bigger as more record labels are being established to accommodate more artistes, nurture their talent and release them to the global music world. But in recent times, more artistes are being reported to have walked out off their record labels in search of better and more productive labels to expose their talents.
Artistes leaving Record labels recently
According to a report, separation usually happens in two forms: mutual separation where an artiste sees his contract and chooses to leave and one-sided separation where an artistes sues to leave the record labels unceremoniously, just walking off or being dropped by the label before the contract expires,
http://naijapose.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Don-Jazzy-and-Dbanj.jpg 
























Since Don Jazzy and D'banj parted ways in what we believe were amicable terms, leading to the eventual dissolution of Mo-Hits Records, Nigerian music industry has witnessed probably the greatest era of artistes leaving or being dropped from their labels or management since the Storm Music Records exodus that happened between 2005 and 2007.
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Okwg2kBQEDY/UEjfN67kYcI/AAAAAAAAAQI/z--eBpJJL1Q/s1600/hkn+crew.jpg 
B-Red was reported to have left HKN label last month. The label belongs to Davido and his elder brother and B-Red is a cousin of Davido. His reason for leaving was because he felt that the label was not doing much to promote him as Davido was the only one headlining shows under the label. But recently, he came out on a TV station to debunk claims that he had dumped the label. Perhaps, there is reconciliation in the offing as the artistes along with Shina Rambo have had a sharp disagreement with Davido in recent times.
 
Jesse Jagz formerly of Choclocate City also recently dumped the label and moved on to start his own Jagz Nation. Though he produced the biggest single ever on the label (Oleku), the artiste didn’t mince words when he announced his departure from Chocolate City Records. His former label mates, M.I (Jude Abaga) his senior brother, Ice Prince and Chocolate city have all spoken to show solidarity with his decision.

WizKid, one of the rising stars of Hip hop left EME label in February in circumstances that revealed he must have being unhappy of the treatment he received from his record label.

May D is another artiste formerly of Square Records but left last year in unfriendly circumstances to start his own Confam Entertainment. His signing to Square Records seemed like the perfect match, after featuring on Chop My MoneyWith Akon and dropping some singles on the label. He seems to fairing well after his exit.

Olamide now the toast of rappers was formerly of Coded Tunes and managed Toni Payne Management. Along the line, things didn’t work out and he just left and declared YNBL Nation without announcing officially of his reason for leaving Coded Tunes managed by ID Cabasa. Now his own boss, leading YBNL Nation and managed by Tony Nwakalor Management, his decision has paid off.
The list goes on and on. What of Eva Alordia formerly of Trybe records. http://tayoyarns.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/eva003.jpg 
She is one of the most promising female rappers in Nigeria. The label released a press statement dropping her without her releasing anything with them.
YemiAlade is another artiste who was signed under Jus’ Kiddin’ Entertainment and has moved on to pitch her tent with Effizzy Entertainment. Since then Yemi has gone ahead to drop different songs and videos, and is currently gearing to drop her Debut Mixtape on her new Label.
Record labels and their interests
According to Wikipaedia, there are at least seven dominant Records labels in Nigeria and they include Kennis Music Alapomeji Records owned by 9ice, Choclolate City headed by AuduMaikori, Independent Entertainment owned by Faze of the famed PlantashunBoiz, KayCee Records, Yaak Entertainment and Marvin Records. But with the emergence of newer artistes, more Record labels are being churned.
There is Empire Mates Entertainment EME label owned by Banky W and TundeDemuren, HKN label owned by Davido and his brother Wale Adeleke, Hypertek Records owned by Tu Face Idibia. DB Records, the new record label floated by D Banj has Kayswitch, his brother, a Ghanaian artiste and another American under the label.
A record label normally signs a contract with an artiste and it is documented. Part of the function of this record label is to nurture the talent of the artistes signed under them and project them to the industry. When this is done and the artistes become a commercial success, both definitely smile to the bank. It is when the artistes do not realize their goals under the label that is where the conflict begins.
An entertainment lawyer, Barrister Akinyemi noted that the terms of the contract depend on the label who determines the worth of the artiste as at that time. “The recording label determines the artiste’s worth in their own estimation. A record label is normally aimed at developing the talent of an artiste and weighs his contract by it. Depending on the level of his literacy, the deal can be 70-30 talking about the sharing formula of how much they make from the artiste.
But if the artistes negotiate well, the recording contract can be 60-40 which talks about his entitlement. (The record label takes the higher percentage while the artiste has the remaining percentage). If it is not 60-40, then it is 55-45 which is the standard in developed countries”, says Akinyemi. He added that artistes normally walk out their contract when they feel the label they signed under is not doing enough to promote them.
Kenny Ogungbe is a veteran in the music industry. The CEO of Kennis Music who has helped the careers of various artistes notably Tu Face, OJB, Tony Tetuila, Faze and others remarked that there are some record labels that are not supposed to be in the industry because they lie to the artistes and promise them heaven and earth that they cannot fulfil.
Why an artiste may dump his record label
A lot of factors come into play that makes musical artistes not to last in Record Labels. The artistes involved either walk out of the contract they have with their record labels or the Record labels terminate the existing contract that they have with their artistes.
Failed expectation
Most artistes dump their record label when what they expect from the label is not commensurate to what they ultimately get from it. On the other hand the company can also terminate the contract when the artistes in focus do not live up to their expectation.
According to Barrister Akinyemi, most artistes get frustrated when they don’t see the record label they signed to doing much for them. He said, “Most of the time, it centres on the expectation on either the part of the artiste or the owner of the Record label. If the record label does not live up to the expectation of the musician, say in three year, they promise him or her an album and a concert tour to follow but the label does not live up to the promise, this can make the artiste to leave the record labels and you can see a lot of this happening in our music industry.
“Another issue from the point of the musician is when you are not promoting my music; you are not ensuring my productions are coming out in commensurate to what the artiste feels he can offer. This can cause the artistes to walk out on his existing contract because he feels another company can offer him what he desires.”
Lack of trust
Like all business deals, lack of trust between either parties or more naturally lead disengagement. Sometimes the label may have one artiste that generates money and that may make them nonchalant and less interested in the fostering and development of other artistes on the label. That will definitely become a problem eventually for the label and see protests from the neglected artistes.
Entertainment lawyer, Barrister Akinyemi elaborating on this noted that record labels ought to help the artiste to develop before moving to the next level. “It behooves the recording label to help the artistes to realize his potentials before moving to the next level. Some recording labels and doing just fine but some can be said to be reaping of their talented artistes and this breeds lack of trust which in turn causes conflict that makes a musician to leave his record label or seek to terminate his recording contract due to one reason or the other “, he noted
The Issue of Money
With more money comes more problems, another factor, loyalty and money and inversely proportional to each other, and with the kind of money the Industry generates now, its quite hard for an Artiste to remain loyal to a label that doesn’t generate money for him, all in all, different factors have led to this, and I think it’s going to happen more and more in years to come.
Akinyemi says that an artiste who feels cheated would dump his label for another. “The major issue confronting many record labels in Nigeria is the issue of money and how much, the artiste is suppose to make from his work and this is based on the pre-existing contract if there is any. If an artiste feels being cheated, he may get to the point that he has no choice than to walk out of the record label that he or she is involved with.
On the other side, the record label can deem it fit to terminate the contract with the musician if they have a reason to doubt his loyalty to the company like any corporate firm. This happens a lot in our music industry and the onus is on the artiste to be loyal to his or her record label as long as she is bound to an existing contract with the label.

I Regret Being a Divorcee – Monalisa Chinda

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-PNOUpZx1vtA/UW0LCwO9nJI/AAAAAAAAPrI/Q7jKzwK0Hz4/s1600/Monalisa+Chinda.jpg
When it comes to beauty in Nollywood, one of the names that will quickly come to mind is that of Monalisa Chinda.
But the unfortunate thing about her is that she is presently living alone. Her marriage to Dejo Richards packed up few years ago due to some irreconcilable differences.
While she alleged that Dejo physically abused her in the marriage, those in the camp of her ex-husband denied that, alleging that she caused the seperation.
Though Dejo has since married another woman, Monalisa has remained unmarried, though she was recently romantically linked with Lagos socialite, Lanre Nzeribe. The relationship is being kept under the carpet with none of the two denying or confirming the romance tale.
In a recent interview, Monalisa confessed her regrets having to raise the only product of her marriage with Dejo Richards. The union produced Tamar, a beautiful daughter.
According to the UNIPORT Theatre Arts graduate, “one thing I regret most is the fact that I am divorced. That’s the only thing I regret, having to raise my child without the father.”
She further added that, “it is a bit painful. But I have to live with it. It’s better that way than to expose my little daughter to all sorts of domestic violence. It will definitely affect her upbringing. She will be dis-functional. God knows the best. Maybe, I should have been more careful.”
