Nigerian singer, Simisola Ogunleye, a.k.a Simi is known for a lot of things to include being a talented singer with an incredible voice and taste for good music, but she has again proved herself beyond expectation with the launch of her own record label, Studio Brat’.


The ‘Mind your business’ crooner made the announcement via social media ahead of the release of her latest musical project titled ‘Jericho’, featuring reggae/dancehall singer, Patoranking.

While making the announcement, she revealed that floating her own record label is the best part of her music journey.

“The norm is to do a formal and proper press release, with big, impersonal words, but this is me and you. We started with true laughs, constructive criticism, silly jokes and personal moments. We’re going to keep it that way. All I’ve ever wanted was to live my dreams, to do it on my terms, but for you. Each step I’ve taken has brought me here. This is only the beginning of the best part of my journey. I hope that you stand with me, fight with me, love with me and grow with me. My team and I have continuously put our hearts into it. Like Michael Jackson said, “Don’t stop till you get enough.” We never want to let you down. Proof: I’m using a Michael Jackson quote. So, with a heart full of excitement, I introduce Studio Brat to you. It’s Ours. Let’s do what we do”, she said.

Recall that after the successful expiration of her 5-years recording contract with record label, Xtreme Music, she moved on last month, May 2019, contrary to speculations that she may renew the contract

Meet Crayon: Don Jazzy’s Mavin Records Signs New Artist

Mavin Records announces the signing of Crayon, the first artist signed to Baby Fresh’s Blowtime Entertainment record label imprint. Crayon’s innovative music blends global pop, local Afrobeats, Latin and Caribbean rhythms for a dynamic new sound with mass appeal.

“We are pleased to announce our new imprint deal with Baby Fresh's Blowtime Entertainment as we unveil our new artist, Crayon. Baby Fresh has always been part of the Mavin family and we look forward to what is shaping up to be a remarkable stage of his amazing career. Crayon is an exceptional songwriter and recording artist who comes with a lot of diversity in his music and I am sure that we will attain great things together,” said Don Jazzy, Mavin’s founder and President.

“Crayon is a bundle of talent and creating this imprint with Baby Fresh is part of our objective to deliver dynamic growth for our artists. Our ambition is to help talent achieve their musical and entrepreneurial goals with our infrastructure, unique experience and diverse team. This kind of collaboration is vital for the growth of our industry,” said Mavin’s COO, Tega Oghenejobo.

Crayon grew up in Iba, Lagos, filling notebooks with lyrics and jumping at the first chance he got to record in a studio, where he met his friend and collaborator Ozedikus. By chance, Baby Fresh heard one of those early songs and instantly knew Crayon had potential to become the new face and voice of Afrobeats. 

“He’s called Crayon because his work is so colorful: it channels Fela, Drake, Justin Bieber, Bryson Tiller, Wizkid and Davido in a way that feels completely current and fresh. I was on the lookout for a new artist to take Afrobeats somewhere newer and bigger, and that’s what I found in him,” Baby Fresh said. 

“I want to put my community on the map. I’ll be the first artist to really break out of Iba, and that means a lot to me. When I started making music I was just a kid. I’m crazy excited to share my music and be part of this moment when Afrobeats are going global,” Crayon said. 

Crayon will be featured on several upcoming releases from fellow Mavins and his own EP will debut this summer.

Simi leaves her record label following the expiration of her contract

X3M Music has just announced the departure of one of its recording artistes Simisola Ogunleye simply known as 'Simi' following the expiration of her recording contract. 

The Lagos-based label confirmed in a statement signed by A&R executive Vincent Nwanze, that both parties have determined to not renew the contract.

Her special voice, an unassuming look, and writing talent are what attracted her to X3M when she was signed in 2014. Her debut album for X3M (her career second) was released to local and international acclaim in September 2017, and named album of the year in 2018, by The Headies Awards. 

Simi's final album for X3M music ‘Omo Charlie Champagne’ was released on April 19, 2019. X3M music is reputed to have a bias for original, alt music; especially in an industry dominated by pop. 

X3M Music’s management said: 

"we only sign artistes that we love and believe in. We know our taste in music is rather different; but we only sign talents who meet that taste. Fortunately, we have been able to find millions of music lovers here and abroad, who share similar tastes, as is evident in the success of all the artistes we have worked with, including Simi who is without any doubt one of the biggest music talents in the country today…"

X3M Music, part of the X3M group, was founded in 2008 by Steve Babaeko,

Peter Okoye(Mr. P) speaks on ‘sleeping’ with Diamond Platnumz wife, ‘crashing’ his marriage

Nigerian music superstar, Peter Okoye of the defunct P-Sqaure, also known as Mr. P, has reacted to the claim by Tanzania music star, Diamond Platnumz, that he (Mr P) slept with his wife and crashed his marriage.
Platnumz, during an interview on Tuesday on his Wasafi Radio, had said, “Zari was dating P-Square’s Peter a few months before she and I got our first baby, Latiffah Dangote.
“I read messages that she and Peter sent each other via mobile phone. I even confronted her.”
But responding to the allegations on CoolFM, Mr P said it was “stupid” of the Tanzanian singer to make such utterances.
He said, “To be honest with you, I do not know what they are talking about. I can never, and would never say anything.
“Please, I have a new single, and I do not want to get distracted. I do not want to comment on Diamond’s allegations. In fact, it is stupid.
“Once people discover that you are doing well, the devil just finds a way of rearing its ugly head. Nonetheless, we are friends with Diamond Platnumz; he is my guy.”
Recall that Zari, Platnumz’s wife, had taken to Instagram to rubbish the claims, noting that those who dared believe her ex-husband were just as “stupid” as he was.
She had written, “He alleged that I had a relationship with P-Square’s Peter, and another with my personal trainer… If you guys are going to believe a word that comes from him, the same man who denied his own blood, then you are all stupid just like him.
“I am asking you to respect me; stay where you are; the kids and I are doing fine without you
