I’ve Been Stabbed, Robbed and Shot Several Times – Singer, Yung6ix Makes Stunning Revelation

Popular Nigerian musician, Yung6ix has opened up about his life and the terrible dangers he has faced in the past. 


Growing up in Warri, Delta State has made fast rising act, Youg6ix what he is today. Rather than allow himself to be consumed by the violence that infested the city, he discovered music, left home for Lagos and everything fell into place.

In this interview, the musician opens up on his career and journey so far.

How did music begin for you?

I started dancing first; I used to love Michael Jackson a lot. From dancing, I fell in love with the music I was dancing to. Back then in Federal Government College, Warri, when you got to a certain class, you would have to get involved in one social activity or the other. For the ladies, they would teach you how to cook and for the boys, they had other things. So, I joined the Boys Brigade.

I would always go back home to learn how to play the drums and when I got bored playing what I was taught in school, I would start playing 2Pac songs, Biggie songs. From that time, I started rapping songs. After rapping these artistes’ songs I wanted to rap something new, sing something new and I wanted to hear something new on that beat. From there, I started coming up with my own lines and lyrics. I later found out that there were other students that loved singing too. That was how we started a group   called ‘Full Clip’. We took part in competitions and I somehow became the best rapper and I was very popular in the secondary schools in Warri.

Everybody knew that there was one Warri boy who could rap. That was how everything started and I kept moving on. When I stepped off the stage, all I thought about was the next stage. That was how I kicked off.

Who are your greatest influences?

I am highly influenced by Don Jazzy. I look up to him. I believe in making the right moves because it worked for him. Also, I learn from his mistakes. I learn from my own mistakes too.

How was life like, growing up in Warri?

I won’t say that growing up in Warri was bad. My family was okay; we were doing fine but it got to a point that we lost everything. So, growing up was kind of two-sided; the good times and then the bad times. However, growing up into a teenager and disconnecting from your parents when you feel they no longer understand you was a different part of my life. I found music and I disconnected from my family. I felt there was something I needed to embrace when my family was not there. And Warri was very violent; I got shot a couple of times. I was stabbed; robbed, many things happened to me. I am grateful I grew up in Warri because if I had not grown up in Warri, I would not have been as wise or smart or even become what I am today. Because of the vibes the street gives, if you can make it out of that place, then you can be successful anywhere.Warri is full of goal- getters; that’s why most people don’t mind doing what they need to do to get to the top. It’s not easy.

Were your parents in support of your music career?

My parents were not in support, but most of the boys who were part of my crew when I first started rapping were like ‘what are you doing? They were asking if my career was going to work. But I always had this belief that

I was different. When I go to places and they hear my voice and music, they always say I am different. I held on to those positive vibes above all the negative vibes. Then I started doing things that would make people like me. I kept going until it got to this point.

How was the journey from Warri to Lagos? I guess you came on your own?

I came on my own, but I came with a few people including my producer, Yungx and a guy. We were in the studio one night in Warri and we were discussing; we were like ‘how much is transport fare to Lagos?’ We discussed and later concluded that we were coming to Lagos. So, the next day I told my mum that I was going to Lagos. She looked at me as if I was a joker, and at that point, my dad had left us. I felt nobody could stop me. I met some friends, one of them gave me N10,000 and that was how I came to Lagos.We did not know where to sleep but one of my friends said he knew someone, and then we went there to sleep. The guy turned out to be a producer but his studio was so small. There was no bathroom or anything, it was just a room. I remember I used to take my bath outside the house. We would wake up early to have our bath. Then, we started having friends in the neighborhood. We became friends with a barber and we used to take our bath in his place because he had a bathroom in his house. It was a crazy life.

You have been dropping singles, when are we expecting your album?

I am currently working on the album. A couple of my singles would be on the album. I have a new record with Korede Bello, which will also be on the album. I am just waiting for that time when the market will be ready to take the album, because the album is not for the African market only. So, I am trying to make the album as creative and beautiful as ever.

Are you currently in a relationship? 

I’m not in any relationship yet I’m not single. I am just focused which means I may be interested in a woman. However, I’m not ready for any commitment, because sometimes relationship holds back dreams. The last EP I dropped was called ‘Billionaire Ambition’. A lot of people thought it was all about music, but it was not. At this point in my life, I want to be a billionaire. Sometimes when you share some kind of things with women they slow you down.

Who is your ideal woman?

My ideal woman is different from the woman I am attracted to.

Can you recall your craziest experience with a female fan?

A girl tattooed my name on her body and I felt loved.

You have just signed on two new artistes. What about them?

I have learnt a lot and if I keep applying all I have learnt to myself, obviously I am going to get bigger. Again, I did not give myself this opportunity, someone gave me the opportunity. This is about giving back to people that are really talented and that could make something out for themselves as artistes and as stars too. That’s one of the reasons I signed an artist. The label has grown over the years and we have understood the market and the industry whereby we can successfully put a product out.

LK Kuddy is a star; there are so many qualities in him that the world has not seen yet. He speaks Hausa, Yoruba and English and he is a graduate. Any investor that runs into him will grab the opportunity that I did. His music is not for the Nigerian market alone, his music is for the world.

The other artist is an amazing singer. I met her at a concert where she performed before me, and she was amazing. After that, we met in Uyo. I went for a concert with my manager and there, I spoke to her about getting a first lady for my record label and she was like ‘okay’. Then I invited her for my concert and she killed the show. She later came to Lagos. She is half Ghanaian and half Nigerian. She also has the Ghanaian and Nigerian vibes mixed and she put everything from her culture into her music. Both artistes would soon release their singles and videos. So, everyone should watch out for them.

What is your advice for up and coming artistes?

Do what you love; stay out of drugs, knowing that determination is the key to success.

Don’t just be smart; be wise, that’s the only way you can succeed.

I Spoke to My Mother the Very Day She Died – Moji Olaiya’s Daughter Opens Up

The daughter of the late veteran actress, Moji Olaiya, has spoken out about how she spoke to her mother the day she died. 


Nigerian actress,Moji Olaiya is said to have died in Canada, two months after she delivered a daughter.

Sunday Scoop reports that the actress’ first daughter, 20-year-old Adunoluwa, was expectedly badly shaken upon hearing the news of her mother’s death. The young light-skinned girl wailed bitterly and had to be taken to a secluded room to sleep.

When the residence was visited the next day, Adun was calmer and more composed and she sat under the canopy erected in the compound to receive guests. Many of the well-wishers hugged and commiserated with her.

In a brief chat with Sunday Scoop, it was clear that the pain was still raw in Adun’s heart as she said,“This is the worst kind of news anyone can hear. I spoke with her on the day she died and nothing prepared me for this bad news. I will miss her love and care, because she always provided anything I wanted.”

On how the funeral rites would be handled, Adun simply said, “I don’t know at this point. It is the family that will take care of that.”

Meanwhile, Sunday Scoop also gathered that Moji had gastric ulcer, which likely led to complications during childbirth, which was done through a caesarean section.

She was said to have been certified okay by her doctors after the delivery but that she complained shortly after of pain and discomfort.  It was also gathered that Moji still spoke with a friend of hers about three hours before she died. According to her grieving relatives, the complications started suddenly and within a short time, she was dead.

Many of her colleagues were present with teary eyes and gloomy countenances. Popular actress, Faithia Balogun-Williams spent a long time with Moji’s mother in a room away from other sympathisers, and when she came out, she briefed her colleagues including Kemi Afolabi, Yomi Fabiyi, Foluke Daramola-Salako, Bimbo Thomas, Bisi Ibidapo-Obe, among others.

When Sunday Scoop approached her, Faithia said,“It is a sad occurrence and nobody is happy about it. I am not in the right frame of mind to say anything now”

In the condolence register opened at the house, many of Moji’s relatives, friends and fans expressed their condolences.

“It’s so sad to lose you at this point. God understands. I met you once and it is a memory I’ll always keep,” wrote Pastor Bartlette.

Popular actress, Fausat Balogun, aka Madam Saje simply wrote, “I don’t even know what to say.”

‘I don’t take advantage of my female fans’ – Kiss Daniel

Talented singer, Oluwatobiloba Daniel Anidugbe, aka Kiss Daniel, has stated emphatically that he doesn’t take advantage of his female fans. Even though some of the fans throw themselves at him, he maintains that he always exercises restraint in such instances.
At a recent concert in Warri, Kiss Daniel invited a girl on stage and as he crooned for her, the girl practically melted in his hands. Even though some people insinuated that the girl probably followed him to his hotel room, Kiss said the ‘act’ ended on stage.


On several occasions, our correspondent has also witnessed massive outpouring of love for the Sin City singer by his fans, especially females.In an exclusive chat with Sunday Scoop, Daniel said, “I am an entertainer and it is inevitable that ladies would always come around me. However, I respect my fans a lot and I don’t take advantage of them. Some ladies could act funny but I handle them maturely. Many of the things you see on stage end there; they are all part of the show. Many of these fans are in love with the idea of who they think you are; they don’t know the real you.”
Speaking on his most memorable performance, Kiss said,
“THAT WOULD BE DIFFICULT FOR ME TO SAY BECAUSE FOR EVERY GIG, I BRING MY ‘A’ GAME. NO TWO SHOWS ARE THE SAME AND I ALWAYS WANT TO GIVE MY FANS DIFFERENT THINGS EVERY TIME I STEP ON STAGE.”

Why God stopped me from committing suicide – Tiwa Savage’s husband, TeeBillz


TeeBillz, husband to pop star, Tiwa Savage, has said God saved him from taking his life, so he could help others who were in the same situation.
TeeBillz had attempted to jump into the Lagos lagoon, while he was experiencing crisis in his marriage, but was saved by Banky W and Peter of P-Square.
In an interview with the Punch, he said the experience is helping him assist others going through the same situation.
“The way I handle things now is completely different from how I acted in the past. I do better now because I know better. If I had gone through the experience before now, it probably wouldn’t make sense to me until I go through some challenging situations. But I thank God that I have been able to overcome all those through the guidance of my coach.
“I only recently understand what it means to have a purpose in life. I have saved many people from committing suicide even though I don’t come out to say it. I was suicidal myself but God preserved me so I could also save others. I just realised that He kept me to touch the lives of others. People surely have their opinion about me and the entire issue, but God sees my heart and knows how much of a new man I am.
“I am like Job in the Bible, God made me pass through all these challenges to make me a better person. I am only human, just like everyone else, so I am not immune to committing mistakes. My experience can be likened to a battle between evil and good. I am happy God redeemed me and pushed me on the side of good.
“I am not being religious, I am just grateful to Him for giving me a renewed mindset. This is one of the biggest things coaching has done to me,” TeeBillz said.

Ekiti State Government Aborts Moji Olaiya’s Burial In Canada


The burial of Nollywood actress, Moji Olaiya, earlier scheduled yesterday by 4pm (Friday, May 19, 2017) in Canada, was aborted at the last minute by Ekiti state government.
The remains of the 42 year old mother of two daughters who died of cardiac arrest following childbirth complications on Thursday, May 18, in Canada, will now be ferried to Nigeria for burial.

Insiders at the Magodo home of the actress (in Kosofe local council area of Lagos) revealed that the government of Ekiti volunteered to bankroll the shipment of the corpse to Nigeria.
Earlier, the family and her colleagues had agreed that Moji Olaiya should be buried in Canada as Islam enjoins (with deceased buried not later than the second day after death) at 4 pm yesterday.
But the plans changed with the intervention of Ekiti state (where the actress is from).
Her eldest daughter, Adunola, 18, had insisted that her mother’s corpse should be brought back to Nigeria. But she was persuaded to allow the Canada funeral yesterday.
Moji Olaiya’s Abuja based Alhaji husband and father of her two month old baby, who arrived Lagos two days back, also acceded to the Thursday burial.
But with Ekiti state intervention, all will await the corpse which will land here by the weekend

‘The Way I Handle Things Now Is Completely Different From How I Acted In The Past’ – Teebillz


In a recent interview with Punch, Tiwa Savage’s husband Teebillz, who almost took his own life at the peak of his marital troubles with the singer, says the way he acted now is different, like completely different from the past.
Recall that on April 28, 2016, the talent manager levelled shocking allegations of infidelity and emasculation against his wife and then attempted to jump off a bridge in Lagos. Tiwa Savage denied the accusations in a revealing interview, and also laid bare her ordeal during the short period of their union. But they made peace again and Teebillz stayed away from social media until months later when his photo with the singer surfaced on social media.
Now, Teebillz who maintains a low profile since the drama, has become a religious man and tells Punch about his journey since the messy saga.
See the excerpts:
On how far he has come
“The way I handle things now is completely different from how I acted in the past. I do better now because I know better. If I had gone through the experience before now, it probably wouldn’t make sense to me until I go through some challenging situations. But I thank God that I have been able to overcome all those through the guidance of my coach.
“I only recently understand what it means to have a purpose in life. I have saved many people from committing suicide even though I don’t come out to say it. I was suicidal myself but God preserved me so I could also save others. I just realised that He kept me to touch the lives of others. People surely have their opinion about me and the entire issue, but God sees my heart and knows how much of a new man I am.
“I am like Job in the Bible, God made me pass through all these challenges to make me a better person. I am only human, just like everyone else, so I am not immune to committing mistakes. My experience can be likened to a battle between evil and good. I am happy God redeemed me and pushed me on the side of good.
“I am not being religious, I am just grateful to Him for giving me a renewed mindset. This is one of the biggest things coaching has done to me.”
On if his friends stood by his side through the messy period
“God is the only friend I have.”
Asked if he has truly made peace with Tiwa Savage
“God is the only friend I have. He knows and has the best for me in His vineyard.”
On what he dedicates his time to doing now
“I am already helping a couple of colleagues in the industry that require the type of coaching I have been through. I am open to working with others needing some sort of motivation and inspiration. Celebrities are humans too, our lives are out there for people to see but that does not mean we cannot make mistakes. The most important thing, however, is for one to surmount the challenge and triumph. I am happy with my life now.

Promise and fail: Davido leaves namesake high and dry


It appears Davido never fulfilled his promise to his namesake, David Adeleke.  
The young man was sourcing funds on Gofundme to attend a workshop at Yale, when the musician reached out to him and promised to contribute to his goal of 3500 dollars.
Well it seems David finally reached his target yesterday without papa Imade. An aggrieved fan took to social media and called out Davido for not keeping his word.
