Nigerian pop duo P-Square have shot a music video with American rapper T.I. for a song "Ejeajo" on their forthcoming sixth studio album.

Their album is one of the most anticipated albums in recent times in Nigeria, it will be interesting to hear the direction they’ll be taking their body of work.

P-Square’s older brother and manager Jude Okoye was also present at the shoot.

But many African music lovers believes that P-Square, which is considered one of Africa's top musicians, did not really surprised their fans -the way they used to; this is how one fan of P-Square put it: "Psquare! i love you guys but you let me down with this song! for christ sake,this is just like lionel richie going into rap or afrobeat.....stick to do what you do best.
you guys are still my number one :)."

But according to P-Square, the music is all about saying what is true -the fact:

This new video "Ejeajo" is nothing but testament to that fact. Raising the bar a bit higher this time around, PSquare went all out to recruit one of the U.S’ hottest rappers and hitmaker, T.I. With their 6th studio album set to drop in a jiffy, the magical duo overcame a family rift and subsequently released 3 singles off the upcoming album. "Ejeajo" is a contemporary pop tune spiced with a sprinkle of Afrobeat and archetypical Michael Jackson dance steps even the late singer would be proud of. Directed by the ever reliable Clarence Peters and elder brother to the duo, Jude 'Engees' Okoye, the video does absolute justice to the song itself. If you're a fan of electric pop and quick dance steps, you'll definitely love this one. Check it out!

Well, we hope you enjoy the music.

Beautiful Nubia’s Message To African Leaders Tags: News Celebrity Beautiful Nubiam Entertainment Music

Beautiful Nubia, born Segun Akinlolu isn’t a conventional singer. That much is obvious from his looks, his music and style. They say he sings what is called African folklore songs but the singer once confirmed to Potpourri that he is much more than that.

He said he is a messenger and his songs, the message.
Undoubtedly, Beautiful Nubia’s songs are built on rich folkloric traditions and native wisdom but his message is universal in thrust and theme: “Value life, respect nature and learn to live in peace with others”. 

The music speaks for the voiceless and champions the dream of a balanced society where individuals are truly free and equal. It preaches love and tolerance but also urges people to stand and defend their rights when trampled upon anywhere in the world” says Wikipaedia on his profile. But there is another streak to the dreadlocks wearing Vet turned musician and that is of activism. 

He has lent his voice to many issues in the past. The latest one, which he sent through the Blackberry messenger, is his message to African leaders.

Hear him: “Everything seems to be a source of joke and fun for the Nigerian. It could be a looming disaster like the 2015 elections, the President’s wife’s unforgivable and unfeeling public gaffes, politically sponsored bombings that spread fear and sadness, or an immediate concern such as the Ebola threat” he began.
“What should make us cry seems to make us burst out in an orgy of mirth and backslapping revelry. As we speak, African leaders are busy making a mockery of themselves in Washington and selling the future to their eternal masters. The Powers of the West are good at telling you that Africa is rising when we all know the continent is sliding more backward than ever. 

And just before they got the leaders, the smart Americans hosted a bunch of young Africans who had been handpicked as future leaders of the continent.

These ones then will become the agents who will work against their people in the years to come. So, we keep rolling our ‘nyashes’ to our pathetic pop music, celebrate our overrated “appointed” authors who speak the language of distraction, and follow the English Premier League with the kind of passion that some people put into national development.

The West is selling a dud to our present leaders, and they have already lined up those who will take over and do their bidding in the future. So, let the laughter ring from Cape Town to Calabar, from Lilongwe to Lagos, from Zanaga to Zaria, from Jo’burg to Jos. “Africa Rising– O Ye!” Jokers” he said.

MONROVIA, Liberia — Liberia's world famous soccer star George Weah has produced a song to raise awareness about Ebola, the deadly disease ravaging West Africa.

Weah said he hopes the song will help stop the spread of Ebola, which has so far killed 961 in Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Nigeria. Nearly 2,000 people have been infected with the disease, and health officials have said they are struggling to contain it.

"Let us all arise and come together to fight Ebola; Ebola is real," the lyrics of the song exhort. Experts say fear and misunderstanding of Ebola have led many to ignore medical advice, fueling the disease's spread. Some even doubt the disease's existence.

"Ebola In Town" LISTEN by Shadow, D-12 & Kuzzy of 2kings (Liberia) 

Liberian authorities have tried several ways to get the message across that the disease is real and that people with symptoms must seek medical care. Everyone has been encouraged to their wash hands frequently, avoid contact with the sick and to suspend traditional burial practices that involve touching the corpse.

Weah, who before he retired was once named FIFA's player of the year, is now a politician and singer; he has run for president twice.

He said Liberia's Health Ministry asked him to join their efforts to raise

awareness, so he worked with the Ghanaian musician, Sidney, to record the song. Proceeds from sales will go to the Liberian Health Ministry.

During a performance Sunday night, Weah said he feared that if nothing is done the disease will spread beyond the four countries.

"I know Africa will be affected if we don't take it seriously," he said.

Liberia 'Ebola In Town' Song, Musicians Reveal The Truth, Plus Lyrics And Full Song (DOWNLOAD) Tags: Liberia News Music Ebola Samuel Shadow Morgan Edwin D-12 Tweh

Ebola has been responsible for many hundreds of deaths, for fear, for panic, for disbelief and anger; and for a catchy dance song: "Ebola in Town."

The producers behind this unlikely music are Samuel "Shadow" Morgan and Edwin "D-12" Tweh, who grew up in the shadow of war. They both spent time as kids in refugee camps in Ghana after fleeing the civil war back home in Liberia.

They made music together in the camp. Eventually they were able to move back to Monrovia, their country's capital, where they regularly meet up with other musicians in each other's home studios to make music together.

LISTEN:

Back in May, Shadow, D-12 and their friend Kuzzy were hanging out at Shadow's studio, thinking about what to do next. Someone threw out the idea of a song about Ebola. They'd heard about the disease but not many of their friends were taking it seriously. Most people, they say, thought it was a trick made up by the government as a way to make money.

Shadow and his collaborators have made music about social issues before – deadbeat dads, sanitation. And even though they weren't sure exactly how bad Ebola was at the time, they did think that people should pay more attention to the disease.

So they laid down a beat and a melody and improvised the vocals. They finished the song in a day. That night, Shadow uploaded the song to the Internet and started sharing it with friends and DJs. The very next day he heard the song playing all around the streets of Monrovia and on people's cell phones. Within three days it was all over the country and had inspired an original dance where dancers mimic kissing and hugging from a distance — a way to keep safe from infection in a country where people love to embrace when they meet.

Shadow and D-12 came to the U.S. in June to attend the Liberia Music Awards, held in Atlanta this year to get more press. They had five nominations and four wins.

Both men say that it was not until they arrived in the U.S. and started watching the news that they fully realized the extent of the Ebola outbreak. Back home, they say, there hadn't been much coverage. Both the health ministry and the government were slow to get the word out.

They're now visiting Shadow's brother in Minneapolis and hoping to do some benefit concerts while they're in the U.S. And they're worrying about the situation back home. D-12 recently heard that a friend in Liberia who works as a nurse had contracted the virus and is currently in treatment.

With Ebola raging in their country, they're not sure they want to go home anytime soon. But they hope their music can help raise money and awareness to combat the Ebola epidemic.

Here are the lyrics for Liberia's first Ebola song:

Something happen
Something in town
Oh yeah the news
I said something in town
Ebola
Ebola in town
Don't touch your friend!
No touching
No eating something
It's dangerous!
Ebola
Ebola in town
Don't touch your friend!
No kissing!
No eating something
It's dangerous!

I woke up in the morning
I started hearing people dem yelling

"Da what thing happen? What thing happen? Ma peekin' what thing?"
They sit down grab me
They say something in town
Frisky!
That thing that in town it quick to kill
That me scary-o
E-B-O-L-A
Ebola. Ebola in town.
I started yelling.
I started running.
What place I will go?
I go to Guinea.
I went everywhere.
Ebola. Ebola there.
I'm not going anywhere.
I'm right here.
I'm not going nowhere-o.
I'm right here.
I know the medicine.
That distant hugging
I said distant shaking
Distant kissing
Don't touch me!

Something in town-oh
Something in town-eh

Ebola.
Ebola in town.
It's dangerous-o.
Ebola is very wicked.
It can kill you quick quick.
Be careful how you shaking hands-o.
Be careful who you touch.
Ebola is more than HIV/AIDS.

It can kill you quick quick.
It can kill you fast fast.
Don't touch your friend.
Don't touch your friend.
I say it will kill you-o.

My pa Jehovah
Please save us from Ebola
Nowhere to go
Nowhere to hide
And I ain't come in town
My people, ya'll please take time
Take time before you get that disease
Don't overlook it
That thing it quick to kill

Na na na na. Ebola - o.
It's dangerous.
Don't take it for joke
My people, I saw it before
It coming too fast
Be on the safe side, you hear me?
Ebola.

If you like the monkey
Don't eat the meat
If you like the baboon
I said don't eat the meat
If you like the bat-o
Don't eat the meat
Ebola in town.

I’m Not Afraid To Go To Liberia - Sidney Tags: Music Liberia News Ebola Sidney

Popular Ghanaian musician, Barimah Sidney has indicated his readiness to travel to Liberia to record a music video to go along with his recently released song on Ebola.

Sidney has successfully recorded a song on Ebola with financial support from the Liberian international soccer star and politician, George Oppon Weah, who featured in the song.

The song is doing well on radio and has even been played on BBC radio and other international networks.

As per the agreement with Oppon Weah, Sidney is supposed to shoot a music video to go with the song.

Tuesday’s edition of the Daily Guide newspaper reported that Barimah Sidney has refused to travel to Liberia to shoot the music video insisting it must be shot in Ghana because of the high health risk in the country which is one of the worst affected by Ebola.

This seemed to have created a bone of contention between Sidney and the Oppon Weah Foundation.

Reacting to the newspaper publication Tuesday morning on Okay FM, Barimah Sidney said he was not afraid to go to Liberia.

He explained his only problem was with the Ministry of Foreign Affair’s travel advisory cautioning Ghanaians not to travel to Ebola affected countries.

He said he was waiting for Oppon Weah to return from France this weekend for them to decide whether to shoot the video in Ghana or Liberia.

Sidney’s song on Ebola is meant to create awareness on the disease and how to prevent contracting the virus which has already killed thousands of people in some West African countries.

Liberia was currently in a crises over the Ebola disease. 

New UN figures show that 1,229 people have now died since the beginning of this year in the outbreak that has also hit Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria.

The World Health Organisation has said there were 84 deaths reported between 14 and 16 August.

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is the world's deadliest to date. The disease has no known cure.

Symptoms include high fever, bleeding and central nervous system damage

Fatality rate can reach 90% - but current outbreak has about 55%
Incubation period is two to 21 days

There is no vaccine or cure

Supportive care such as rehydrating patients who have diarrhoea and vomiting can help recovery

Fruit bats, a delicacy for some West Africans, are considered to be virus' natural host.
