How I Got Neglected By Some Artistes When I Needed Help – Lord Of Ajasa
Ajasa is excited that some of his friends and colleagues had donated funds for his treatment, even though many refused to come to his aid.
When Afro-beat musician, Rotimi Martins, popularly known as Alariwo of Africa, posted on his Instagram page that the pioneer of Yoruba rap music, Lord of Ajasa (real name is Olusegun Osaniyi), was seriously ill and urgently in need of funds for a Peptic Ulcer surgery, many movie fans, who knew about Ajasa’s contributions to the growth of Afro-hip hop music and Yoruba rap in Nigeria, were alarmed.
Alariwo’s timely post did not only achieve its intended objective, which was to drum up quick financial support for Ajasa; but it also ensured that the ailing artiste survived the critical stage of the illness.
Ajasa is back home now. He was discharged from the hospital last Tuesday. At the moment, he is getting better and awaiting another surgery to remove some stones in his gall bladder.
The rapper, in a telephone interview with our correspondent on Thursday, said his doctor had placed him under observation, preparatory to the surgery. “I would have had the surgery done, but the doctor said we should delay it to enable me rest for a while. I have lost weight and I need to regain my strength,” he said.
Ajasa was excited that some of his friends and colleagues had donated funds for his treatment. “I am very happy that they did this for me. In fact, I am still shocked at their quick response to my condition. I pray that God will remember them in their time of need,” he said.
He also complained bitterly that some successful artistes he had helped to achieve stardom abandoned him in his hour of need.
Refusing to mention the names of the artistes, he said, “I am surprised that they changed their attitudes toward me. I don’t want to mention names now. They know themselves. Some of them are well known to members of the public. Although I have done a lot for these people, when I needed help from them, they were nowhere to be found. Some of them even avoided contact with me. I am very disappointed in them. All I can say is that in this music business, some people are ingrates.”
The rapper waved aside the insinuation that he had shunned the entertainment scene these past years and withdrawn into his shell. “That is not true. I did not withdraw into my shell. I have been busy working on a new album and attending shows. Before I fell ill, I was spending a lot of time in the studio working. I have a new album in progress. I was planning to shoot the video when this illness came.”
Recounting his journey into music, Ajasa said that he had always been passionate about music and when he was growing up, he knew that he would become a musician. He said, “Eventually I went into music out of sheer passion, not love of money. Many of the artistes I knew at that time didn’t care much about getting rich. Wealth wasn’t the motivating factor for us, unlike today’s artiste’s who go into music because they want to get rich.”
Ajasa, who claimed that he was deeply inspired by the music of King Sunny Ade, Ebenezer Obey and Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, did not sound too happy about the quality of contemporary rap in Nigeria.
“The rap music that we are listening to today, especially in Nigeria, is quite different from what we had in the past. It is no longer as exciting as it used to be,” he said.
Blaming the decline in the quality of rap on the get-rich-quick attitude of the present generation of Nigerian rappers, he added, “In the past, rap artistes virtually struggled to survive. The first time I was paid N10, 000 to perform in a show, I was very excited and happy. I think it was sometime around 2000 or 2001. At that time, N10,000 was a lot of money for somebody who was used to struggling through thick and thin to earn a living. There was no record label in those days. We were doing it on our own. Nobody believed that music would ever be a money spinner.”

YouTube Deletes Tiwa Savage’s “One” Video (READ DETAILS)
In November 2018, singer Danny Young called out Tiwa Savage for lifting vital parts of his song Oju Ti Ti Won and used it in her single One which was released towards the end of 2018.
As it were, the case became controversial as music enthusiasts on social media dragged Danny Young for claiming that the lyrics “Ododun la ro rorogbo, ododun la ra osa, odd dun la ro awusa” were his when in facts were words from a common Yoruba proverb.
Danny Young insisted the lyrics were his since he added a few more words and rhythm to the adage, and that he was ready to file a copyright case against Tiwa Savage.
Few days ago, it was discovered that the song had been removed from Tiwa Savage’s YouTube page.
The message displayed read thus: “Tiwa Savage One is no longer available due to a copyright claim by a third party”, leading fans to believe Danny Young had made good his threat.

Controversial Actress, Tonto Dikeh Reveals She Is Now Celibate, Speaks On Surviving With A Husband
Controversial actress, Tokyo Dikeh has declared that she is not giving s*x a thought this New Year, Sun News reports.
The mother of one, who had a messy divorce with Olakunle Churchill in 2017, was reported to be pregnant for another lover, but she has disputed the claims.
Commenting on the development, the River State-born movie star, said: “’The photo only showed where I was overfed. I am not pregnant. I invented the ‘wed and born’ in secrecy. So, even if I am pregnant, I won’t flaunt it or else demons on standby would eat it. Meanwhile, I am celibate.”
Continuing, Dikeh cautioned ladies mocking her single mother status to desist or face the consequences.
“And to think that it’s only women who make mockery of single mothers the most, is alarming.
“Well, ladies, while mocking a single mother this year, make sure you have a functional womb. Make sure there’s even a womb because when you marry and start looking for children, we would all laugh,” she admonished
Dikeh also recapped what she has been through over the years and how she survived it all without a husband.
“Is there anything she can’t handle? She has been broken. She has been knocked down. She has been defeated. She has felt pain that most would die of. She looks fear in the eyes and gives it a pat on the head, year in year out but never runs and never hides.
“She always finds a way to get back up. She is unbreakable. She is a warrior. She is a mother to an amazing boy and proudly without a husband. She is a superhuman; a king.”
Stop Giving Pastors Your Money If You Want To Be Rich – Freeze
Daddy Freeze has advised people to stop giving their pastors money if they want to become rich this year 2019.
The outspoken OAP took to his Instagram page to make this known while reacting to the recently released list of the top 21 richest men in Africa for the year 2019.
Once again those prosperity pastors misled you….
Where is the prosperity in the land, if we overtook India as the poverty capital of the world and our billionaires became poorer and fewer?
Mike Adenuga was one of the only billionaires that became richer last year and he neither pays tithes nor gives first fruit. In the same vein, the man at the top spot, Aliko Dangote also doesn’t tithe to pastors or churches and neither does he give first fruit.
However, both of Nigeria’s richest men are EXTREMELY CHARITABLE, giving a lot to support the poor, weak and the sick.
It has been shown to us repeatedly by verifiable statistics and empirical studies, that the god of the prosperity doctrine Pentecostals cannot bless anyone with anything except poverty, hardship, and sorrow.
If you want to be rich in 2019, stop listening to Adeboye, Oyedepo and the likes of them and stop giving them your money as well, Instead understudy Dangote and Adenuga, while you invest your money. ~FRZ
