Working With Davido Requires Patience, Persistence And Diligence – Producer, Fresh VDM

Fresh vdm talks about davido
Davido’s Togolese-born, Nigerian-bred, music producer, Fresh VDM, who produced his 2017 hit song, ‘FIA’ and a couple of his other songs has bared his mind on what it is like working with the OBO, saying it takes patience to work with him.
“Working with Davido has been epic; it requires a lot of hard work and determination.
With someone like Davido who gets beats thrown at him from every angle, you need patience, persistence and diligence”, he said in an exclusive chat with Showtime.
He spoke on the challenges he has had to grapple with, working with the DMW henchman who has been described as a workaholic.
“With Davido, you have to be on your toes because he will not like every beat you make, not because it’s not dope but because it has to align with the ideas he has in his head.
Also, he can call you at 2a.m and be like “Can you come over? There is this idea I have”, and you have to go to his house.”
He added that contrary to public belief, Davido is not arrogant, selfish, proud and snobbish like he has been painted.
“David is the sweetest and most caring person I have come to know. He has an amazing heart.
People who don’t know him can hardly see it. He treats everyone as an equal regardless of your social status; he never looks down on you”, he said.
Fresh VDM has gotten thumbs up for good productions from the likes of American Drake and Stefflon Don.

His most recent productions include ‘Ada’ by DJ ECool, featuring Davido; ‘DOE’ by Larry Gaaga, and the latest, ‘Mind’ by DMW stars, Davido, Mayorkun, Dremo and Peruzzi.

Music Is Show Business, Most Top Artistes Are Not Talented – Jim Iyke

Actor Jim iyke
Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke on Saturday said most top artistes are not talented while admitting that his venture into the music industry was a disappointment.
Recall the actor released some songs in 2009 which got lot of criticisms.
According to him, he knew the songs were bad but he ventured into the music industry to have an idea of how things work in the sector after dominating the movie scenes.
He further mentioned that most artistes are at the top because they understand show business and not that they are talented.
Jim Iyke told the Punch;
“My music career is non-existent. My mentor in business once told me that the biggest investment you can ever have is yourself; don’t ever go into a venture that you don’t understand.
“I was interested in music and like everything else that I have foresight for, I saw where the career was going. I knew I did not know how to sing but I wanted to invest in the business, so I decided to try my luck. I did it so that no one would ever tell me that I did not try or I do not know anything about music. It is just like fashion, I know everything about that sector; there is nothing I do not know about real estate as well.
Since I was about 12 years old, I have known about real estate because my father is a construction engineer. To get money to buy a bicycle, I have carried blocks and supervised construction of a building.
“I wanted to invest in music but I needed a guinea pig. I could not use an artiste I hired because there would be a producer that would know that I did not know about the business; so I got involved personally. I sang a few bad songs, got a cheque for it and understood how the business works. I just used it to bid for some time.
“Of course, I knew the songs were bad; I am my greatest critic. I had to put some ‘swag’ into the songs that featured Tuface to sing one or two lines.
“To be honest, how many true talents are in the industry at the moment? Most of the less talented ones are getting far ahead of the talented ones. It is not about having talent but understanding the business and project what works for you. It is all about the way you ‘package’ it and sell it to the world; that is all.
I can name a few terrible artistes but they are getting way ahead of the gifted ones.
“It is because they understand show business; I understand show business,” Iyke said.

R Kelly Has Been Evicted From His Atlanta Home For Unpaid Rent

R Kelly due house rent
American musician, producer and songwriter Robert Sylvester Kelly, popularly known as R. Kelly has been evicted from his Atlanta home due to unpaid rent.
The R’n’B Legend reportedly owes more than $31,000. According to reports that made rounds last year, the R&B singer held 19-year-old Joycelyn Savage against her will and was running a ‘cult’ of kept women in his various properties.
Many of the claims in that report were corroborated by Dallas radio DJ Kitti Jones, who spoke out against Kelly in October. Jones also alleged that she’d once been in an abusive relationship with the singer.
R. Kelly’s eviction from his houses, however, does not involve or include any criminal record. He was evicted for his inability to renew his rent.
