Last week, word went round that upcoming singer Jovial who came to the limelight thanks to her collaboration with Otile Brown before he announced that he had signed her to his label, JustinLove Music.

It was later announced that she had left Otile Brown’s stable after they recorded a second song:

Otile had invested heavily in his starlet to the point of even buying her a car to use for both her personal and professional needs but last week news rent the air that she had parted company with his label and Jovial was now signed to Hailemind Entertainment or any other record label as others had claimed.

Jovial went on to clarify the following:

“David Guoro who is the CEO of Hailemind Entertainment is just my manager. I don’t intend to be signed anywhere,”

She further clarified that Otile Brown is the one who ended her contract prematurely due to some undisclosed differences.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Pinnto, fast-rising Kenyan musician who is destined for greatness

Published

I love good music and whenever I come across an artist who makes dope jams, I always feel the need to inform other people about them because as they say, sharing is caring.

Also read: Gengetone is still alive, kind of

The talented musician I want to tell you about today is none other than Bernard Oduor Nyariro, popularly known as Pinnto.

His dad was a DJ and coupled with the fact that he knew that he had a special gift, this inspired him to start writing his own songs. As he was growing up, Pinnto looked up to the likes of Jua Cali, E-Sir and Nonini.

Pinnto has been doing music professionally for the last 8 years but it’s only a few years back when people started to notice how talented he is.

Asked why it took him so long to get his name out there, the fast-rising dancehall singer explained that it takes long to penetrate the Kenyan music industry because one must have good quality and show that they are serious.

He is a very versatile artist which means that today you will find him spitting bars today and doing a dance hall jam the next day and Gengetone the day after that. However, he says if he does a Gengetone jam he will be careful.

Pinnto dreams of working with Khaligraph Jones, Masauti, Sauti Sol, Timmy Tdat so if they are reading this, please reach out to this guy.

He recently released a new song titled Under Curfew and it has been getting a lot of love. Interestingly, he wrote the wrote the some time back and decided to release it now that we are under a nationwide curfew.

Watch his latest jam titled Under Curfew below and tell us what you think.

Nigerian stars have joined calls for the arrest and prosecution of person(s) behind the rape and killing of a microbiology student, Uwaila Vera Omozuwa, at an empty church in Benin City, southern Nigeria, on Saturday, May 30, 2020.

At the forefront on why the culture of rape in Nigeria should end and perpetrators of such heinous crimes brought  to book, is former Big Brother Naija housemate Khafi Kareem who on June 2, via Twitter, revealed that she was, at some point in her life raped too, and demanded justice for Omozuwa.

Sharing the struggles of victims, Khafi said she confided the harrowing experience to a close associate who blamed her for getting raped.

The reality TV star narrated that the backlash after the harrowing ordeal made her feel guilty and ashamed.

She forgave the rapist, who blamed alcohol for the act, a move she says she does not want repeated and urged victims to speak out and feel no shame in sharing their stories.

“#WhyIDidntReport – because he apologised right after. Because I made myself believe him being drunk was an excuse. Because the one person I did tell said I caused it. Because I felt dirty and ashamed. #WeAreTired,” tweeted the personality.

“Yes, this did happen to me. I’m sharing in the hope that others will feel no shame in sharing what happened to them. Please don’t deflect or say it is not my story when it was already hard enough sharing it.”

Nigerian stars have joined calls for the arrest and prosecution of persons behind the rape and killing of a microbiology student, Uwaila Vera Omozuwa, at an empty church in Benin City, southern Nigeria, on Saturday, May 30, 2020.

At the forefront on why the culture of rape in Nigeria should end and perpetrators of such heinous crimes brought to book, is former Big Brother Naija housemate Khafi Kareem who on June 2, via Twitter, revealed that she was, at some point in her life raped too, and demanded justice for Omozuwa.

Sharing the struggles of victims, Khafi said she confided the harrowing experience to a close associate who blamed her for getting raped.

The reality TV star narrated that the backlash after the harrowing ordeal made her feel guilty and ashamed.

She forgave the rapist, who blamed alcohol for the act, a move she says she does not want to be repeated and urged victims to speak out and feel no shame in sharing their stories.

“#WhyIDidntReport – because he apologised right after. Because I made myself believe him being drunk was an excuse. Because the one person I did tell said I caused it. Because I felt dirty and ashamed. #WeAreTired,” tweeted the personality.

“Yes, this did happen to me. I’m sharing in the hope that others will feel no shame in sharing what happened to them. Please don’t deflect or say it is not my story when it was already hard enough sharing it.”

Omozuwa, 22, a student at the University of Benin was found in a pool of blood inside the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) by a security guard.

According to RCCG spokesman Olaitan Olubiyi, Omuzuwa was a member of the choir and had since the lockdown sought the quiet of the empty church to study as there is no public library in the area.

“We are all devastated by her death. She decided to do some private studies during the lockdown because the church was peaceful. She’s been taking the key from the parish pastor and returning it after her studies. But that day she didn’t return it and the night guard who resumed duty found her in a pool of her own blood and half-naked in the church hall,” Olubiyi told CNN.

Her mother, heartbroken, told Town Crier that the violence meted on her daughter was harrowing, “I ran [to the church] but before I got there, they took her to a private hospital and when I saw my daughter, I cried. They raped her; the dress she was wearing that morning was white. The white had turned to red; all her body was full of blood.”

In a statement, General Overseer Enoch Adeboye, the leader to the church billed as one of the largest denominations in Nigeria, condemned the act and saying the church was liaising with police.

“All I can do at this time is to pray for the family of Omozuwa and do everything possible working with relevant authorities to bring the perpetrators to book… I and members of my Family condemn this act strongly and urge everyone to stay calm as we are already looking into the matter and cooperating with the police to establish the facts of the shocking situation… #justiceforuwa,” he said.
