SNOO B, US-Based Pat Muko, Out With ‘Broke’

Published

on

Three Nigerians are currently taking the world of entertainment by storm without a doubt.
Their exceptional talents and captivating performances have earned them a well-deserved reputation and a global following.
If you haven’t heard of them yet, now is the time to take notice.
Oladiti Olulwatobi, also known as SNOO B, is gradually carving out a niche for himself in Afro Beat following the release of his earlier single ‘Mogbo’. The Oyo State-born, Lagos-based artist has expanded beyond the ‘Mogbo’ singles.
In his latest release, which is set to hit the airwaves this week, SNOO B collaborates with US-based Nigerian entertainer, thespian, and singer Princes Pat Muko and Aloba Fresh to create something that could dominate the music charts in the coming weeks.
‘Broke’ is an Afrobeat genre in which SNOO B has significantly improved and recreated the now-popular brand of music from his earlier attempts to stand alone and seek recognition as an artist, singer, dancer, drummer, and conga player.
He began playing in the church choir years ago, before leaving SONCOS High School in Lagos’ Iju neighbourhood.
In addition to producing, composing, and singing for other artists, SNOO B created several songs for Governor Babajide Sanwolu’s reelection campaign tours in Lagos state. Last year, songs such as “One More Time,” “Lekan is,” and “Gbefun Begun,” which means “give it to him, he can do it,” became popular among the Lagos crowd.
The songs did, in fact, rev up the music scene at the time. Although he is quick to point out that politics is not his calling, he has grown to enjoy political songs when political figures campaign for votes.
Do not bother asking SNOO B what he does when he is not on stage or in the studio. “I am a content creator, songwriter, actor, musician promoter, social media manager, and promoter. I have worked for several artists, and now I want to tell the music community that I can equally come out with a single that can compete favourably with the leading artists.”
Though he collaborated with Fresh, Princess Pat Mukoro of Akara Royal Quarters, Kiagbodo Mein, Delta State, Nigeria, and a cousin of the late Nigerian playwright, J.P. Clark worked heavily on the vocals and added a rich flavour to the singles from her base in New York. This versatile artist from the United States is not new to the scene. She appeared in several plays and dance dramas with Dick Zaigun, the Godfather of Neo-Burlesque and Sideshow revivals, the Creator of the Mermaid Parade and the Coney Island Museum, and the permanently unelected Mayor of Coney Island.
Pat Muko explains that working with SNOO B could be the beginning of more songs from her stable.
Surprisingly, SNOO B collaborated on Mogbo with Danny S and is now ‘Broke’.
”This music reflects the current situation and the struggles of people trying to make ends meet in difficult times. Everyone wants some money. Dating, eating, and caring for the family may have been the most difficult times, but there is still hope. I need to encourage people to work hard and strive for success. If you are poor today, you can become rich tomorrow.
“My mother is encouraging me. Dad is late. I wish he was still alive to hear my music and see how far the choir boy has come as a full-fledged artist,” he said, hitting the drums in his studio as the conversation progressed.
Indeed, SNOO B never has a dull moment. He is very serious about his work and admits that it will be difficult for him to leave, and his interest will suffer as a result.
Gany Aloba Oyemomilara, better known as Aloba Fresh, the third ‘leg’ in ‘Broke, is a talented Nigerian artist. He is the mastermind behind numerous movie soundtracks in the Nollywood film industry.

Sydney Sweeney Attacks Producer Who Said She Can’t Act

Sydney Sweeney

Hollywood actress, Sydney Sweeney has responded to veteran Hollywood producer Carol Baum’s comments about her appearance and filmography.

Baum, whose credits include ‘Father of the Bride’ and ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’, made critical comments about Sweeney during a discussion with The New York Times film critic Janet Maslin in Pleasantville, New York.

“How sad that a woman in the position to share her expertise and experience chooses instead to attack another woman. If that’s what she’s learned in her decades in the industry and feels is appropriate to teach to her students, that’s shameful. To unjustly disparage a fellow female producer speaks volumes about Ms. Baum’s character,” a representative for Sweeney, 26, said in a statement. Sweeny recently produced and starred in the box office hit ‘Anyone But You’ and the horror film, ‘Immaculate’.

Baum’s comments discussed the actress’ recent romantic comedy hit. “There’s an actress who everybody loves now: Sydney Sweeney. I don’t get Sydney Sweeney. I was watching on the plane Sydney Sweeney’s movie (Anyone but You) because I wanted to watch it. I wanted to know who she was and why everybody was talking about her. I watched this unwatchable movie — sorry to people who love this … romantic comedy where they hate each other,” said Baum, according to the Daily Mail.

Baum, who is also a University of Southern California adjunct professor, said she spoke about Sweeney with her class.

“I said to my class, ‘Explain this girl to me. She’s not pretty, she can’t act. Why is she so hot?’ Nobody had an answer,” said Baum.

Baum reportedly told TMZ that she regrets her original comments and explained that she doesn’t typically speak negatively.
