I'll Ensure Budget 2017 Is Not Padded, President Buhari Assures

The distortions that happened to Budget 2016, in which series of rogue projects and figures were injected into the financial document won't happen to next year's budget, President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed.

“I Didn’t Lie To My Baby Mama When She Was Pregnant, I Told Her I Wasn’t Ready To Marry Her" –Timaya

Though he has two lovely daughters from his baby mama, the self acclaimed Egberi papa 1 of Bayelsa, Timaya, has said he is not ready to tie the knots- at least not for now.

Speaking to Saturday Beats recently, Timaya said he promised the mother of his children that he wasn’t going to have kids from different women but then,  walking down the aisle was not on his to-do list.

“I am not getting married soon. My life is a journey. My career is my journey. I didn’t lie to my baby mama when she was pregnant; I told her I wasn’t ready to get married. I never said I wasn’t going to get married. But at the moment, I am not ready. When she told me she was pregnant, I accepted the pregnancy. She told me she hoped I wasn’t going to be like other musicians who had kids from different women. I told her no. My two kids are from same woman. I know what I am doing.”

I Wrote Most Of The Songs For Five Star Artistes – Harrysong

Those who felt the union between E-Money’s Five Star Music Label and Harrysong was a match made in heaven were shocked when the gist broke that the Reggae Blues crooner had left the record label. Now, Harrysong has joined the long list of artistes who dumped their record labels to set up their own.

And as he has left, the singer, who claimed he wrote most of the songs in the record label, said his former label would need to recreate their sounds since he has left with the sounds he created while he was with the team.

“My exit from Five Star music will not crumble the record label. They have other artistes and it is a platform that has been built for years. I was there when we started the whole movement and now, I have started mine with my artistes. If any of them should go, my record label will not crumble. I know I wrote most of their songs but with my exit, their sound would change. I came with my own sound and since I am leaving with it, they would have to create something new for themselves. Every artiste has different sounds and it depends on what inspires you.”
