Nigerian singer and producer, Martins Justice, professionally known as J Martins, has said he took a break from the music industry because he wanted to upgrade his knowledge base.
In a recent interview with The Punch, he also revealed that he collaborated more with French artistes than home-based ones in his latest project, but he is now set to work with young Nigerian musicians.
J Martins said; “I stayed off music for a while because I had to upgrade my knowledge and some other aspects of my life. Music is not the only thing that makes me happy, neither is it the only knowledge I like to have. I had the opportunity to upgrade my knowledge and I had to give attention to it. That was why much was not seen of me on the music scene. However, I am back in full force.
“When the COVID-19 pandemic happened, I had to come back home. I am now ready to work with Nigerian artistes, especially the younger ones whom I like. Aside from music, I am also involved in agriculture, as well as being an activist (advocate) for good governance. There are other businesses I do too because I believe one is supposed to have multiple streams of income.”
The ”Good or Bad” hitmaker also stated that his recent social media post in which he warned people against giving people money ‘indiscriminately’, was misunderstood as he did not advise Nigerians not to give generously.
He said; “There are people that will stand by you when things are going well. But when you need them, you would not find them. I remember an artiste that had a health challenge some years back and people whom he had assisted in the past did not help him. He died eventually. So, my quote wasn’t targeted at anyone (in particular).”
Speaking on his recent works, J Martins said; “My music journey has been great so far. I actually did not start music because I wanted to make money. I am making music because I love music. God blessed me through that and He is still blessing me through it. It has been an amazing experience and I am glad I’m able to do music.
“I work more with French artistes and my recent project with an Ivorian artiste, Josey, has had a good reception in French-speaking countries. I get feedback on the song and it has been great.”
Sources Close To Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Address Kanye’s Claims Of Not Being Invited To Chicago’s Birthday Party, Say Ye Suggested Having Two Separate Celebrations
Earlier today, Kanye West made a video saying that his estranged wife Kim Kardashian, was keeping him from attending their daughter, Chicago’s birthday party. We spoke to sources close to Ye and Kim to get both sides of today’s ordeal.
Sources close to both Kanye and Kim tell The Shade Room it was Kanye’s idea to have two separate birthday parties for Chicago. Our source says, “It was news to Kim when he went on live today to say he didn’t have the info and that he wasn’t allowed to go when it was his idea to do two separate events. Kim at 12pm and Kanye at 4pm.”
Another source shares that “she [Kim] is trying to create boundaries and would like more privacy. It has nothing to do with co parenting or the kids.”
In addition, the source claims that the Kardashians have no way of predicting which events he wants to be invited to because “Kanye didn’t show up to Chicago nor Psalm’s birthday last year–nor show up on Christmas Day.”
They add that “Kim has always protected Kanye in an effort to protect the kids by dealing with their issues privately–and has never gotten in the way of allowing him to see his kids and makes every effort to give him full access to them regardless of what he wants the public to believe.”
Kanye West Alleges That Kim Kardashian Will Not Let Him Know Where His Daughter Chicago’s Birthday Party Is—Vows To “Control His Own Narrative”
Whew! Roommates, Kanye West is hurling some serious allegations at Kim Kardashian on the day of their daughter Chicago’s birthday. Kanye claims that despite him reaching out to multiple family members, no one will let him know where her party is today. He also says that will cause Chicago to think he wasn’t there for her and that’s far from the truth.
In a video showing him driving that quickly circulated on social media, Kanye West didn’t hold back at all with his claims against Kim Kardashian allegedly keeping him from celebrating their daughter Chicago West’s 4th birthday today.
“I’m just wishing my daughter a public happy birthday. I wasn’t allowed to know where her party was. It’s nothing legal, that’s saying that it’s the kind of games that’s being played. It’s the kind of thing that really affected my health for the longest… I’m being a father, the best father – the Ye version of a father – and I’m not finna let this happen, and we gon’ be in real-time with this, right here,” he said.
Kanye continuing, adding:
“Chicago, happy birthday. I love you. I’m just putting this online ‘cuz I need y’all support. I done called Kim, I texted the nannies, I got on the phone with Tristan, he said he’d ask Khloe. Won’t nobody give me the address to my daughter’s birthday party right now, and that’s gonna imprint in her mind that I wasn’t there for her, you get what I’m saying?”
Stating that he plans to “control his own narrative” instead of the one the media frequently puts out to the public, Kanye also said “This narrative not finna happen. There’s a lot of people that’s in a position where they ain’t got no voice when people be playing games like this – baby mamas be playing games, the grandma be playing games like this – and it’s like, as y’all know, they ain’t finna play like that, with me.”
It’s a lot going on ya’ll!
