Last year saw appearances by Kim Kardashian, 2face Idibia, and many other great entertainers. Love Like A Movie 2014 will follow a similar style – featuring dozens of performers from Nigeria and abroad – including two platinum superstars to be announced later.

For the benefit of millions who couldn’t attend the maiden edition, which featured exciting thrills, action and conception, Darey and his team put together a reality series, which was aired in November 2013 on television and online. This year’s edition will follow suit with the airing of a 7 episode reality series that will capture the behind the scenes, preparation and eventual performances of what it took to put together a show of its calibre.

‘Love Like A Movie’ is an innovation in concert and events productions. That’s why the spectacle stays with you almost forever’, adds Darey who’s the CEO of Livespot. ‘Picture the mid-air manoeuvres, the HD projections, the dances and duets; even the kind of guests LLAM attracts. I’ve been told this is the Valentine event everyone is looking forward to this year. Guess what? I agree!’

The theme for this year’s event is ‘Love Roller-Coaster’.

Asa-Bukola-612x300

Nigerian musicians were at their best during the just- concluded maiden edition of the Calabar International Jazz Festival, which held at the Cultural Centre and Millennium Park, Calabar. The event was supported by telecommunications giant, MTN. Music lovers thronged the venue to watch their favourite artistes perform on stage with various jazz musical beats. Some of the musicians included Darey, Asa, Jonathan Butler, Eric Benet, Jimmy Lulu, Bez, Salvador Sango, Tari, Jazzy Leo, Dakore Egbuson-Akande among others.

The jazz festival attracted audiences outside the music arena and some of the country’s political bigwigs were in attendance who did not hide their love for the soothing effect of jazz music. They danced to songs from hit-makers of old, who teamed up with those of the present to serenade the city. Asa thrilled the audience with her electrifying performance. She said “ MTN has always been involved in music from the beginning.

They have been there for the love of music, not just for business. You can see it in everything that they have done such as Project Fame, sponsorship of festivals and other events in the events. MTN’s General Manager, Regulatory Affairs, Oyeronke Oyetunde, while appreciating the outcome of the jazz festival, said: “This festival is a direct result of the demand from the more discerning MTN consumers, for a jazz event, in a more intimate setting, which is why MTN, being a responsible and responsive organisation that listens to the yearnings of its teeming customers, supported the Calabar International Jazz Festival.”

The guest list was intimidating, the venue was jam packed, the music was simply out of this world and the organisation was superb with a uniquely different soft drink brand. Welcome to Darey’s Love…Like a Movie concert held at Eko Hotel and Suites which was refreshed by Fayrouz, the premium and stylish soft drink from the stable of Nigerian Breweries Plc. The concert, which was described as the combination of best of music, art, drama and theatre performance had the presence of popular international fashion icon and reality TV star, Kim Kardashian. Also present were top Nigerian hip hop artists, Nollywood front liners and other notable corporate executive.

Some of the  hip hop and rave making artists at the show include, Waje, Tuface, Banky W, Tolu, Praiz, Tiwa Savage, 9ice, Timi Dakolo, Weird MC and other upcoming ones. The Nollywood was represented by Segun Arinze, Emeka Ike, Chidi Mokeme and others.

Speaking at the event, Nnenna Ifebigh-Hemeson, Senior Brand Manager Fayrouz and Climax, said Nigerian Breweries plc as a corporate brand and Fayrouz, as a product brand, does not get involved in anything that is not unique and impacting. “Fayrouz is different, original and unique; it’s in a class of its own. The same goes for the concert that combines Circque du Soleil theatrics and music to present a different kind of experience in this part of the World, it shares great attributes and values with the Fayrouz brand that was why we decided to partner Darey on the show. It is indeed a lifelong experience and we are excited to have been part of it”.

She added that the event also provided the platform to share the brand’s new innovation with consumers through the introduction of Fayrouz cocktail to offer them a different kind of experience and taste of the brand in another unique way.

To ensure that its consumers are not left out, the brand provided consumers the opportunity to witness the show live with VIP tickets to the concert which were won through a live radio show on UNILAG FM. The winners commended the brand for giving them an exciting and premium experience.

Commenting on the show, the producer, Darey Art Alade, disclosed that they were able to make a new statement that offers music lovers the best of music, art, drama and dance with live performances. He thanked his friends who made appearances; 2face, 9ice, Iyanya, Timi Dakolo, Praiz, Waje and others who combined with Circque du Soleil an extreme theatre. “These are guys using sand to draw what I am singing. Our normal concept is just to come on stage, either lip-synching or jumping up and down with dancers when the CD you would release starts playing; what we have been able to bring to the fore is different and unique.” He added.

Some of the celebrities present commended Darey’s originality and creativity in combining music, art, dance and drama to give the music industry a new meaning and scope. They also applauded Fayrouz for offering a refreshing time at the show especially on the Fayrouz cocktail which bring to the table new experience and taste from a uniquely different soft drink.

Nigeria’s biggest and most respected music awards, The Headies is back for the seventh year!

Organizers of Hip Hop World Awards which debuted in 2006 this week announced “A countdown to the big day”- which officially kicks off THE HEADIES.

“On July 23, we will have a mini event to give out the car and plaques to last year’s winners, and then the following day, we will officially launch the countdown to the big day by announcing nominees, hosts, sponsors and other plans” Ayo Animashaun says.

A total of 23 Plaques will be given to last year’s winners- 2face, Don Jazzy, Darey, Ice Prince, MI, Waje, DJ Tee, Modenine, Cabo Snoop, eLDee, Femi, Dr. Sid, Jah Bless and WizKid with Wizkid leaving with the biggest prize- a brand new Hyundai Sonata 2011.

Though yet to make the date of The Headies public, Hip Hop World Awards is already dangling a new theme “step into the spotlight” before rising and established Nigerian acts whose materials – released between March 2011 and February 2012 – pass the test.

Darey has a reputation of always having very spectacular and high quality videos and we can expect the same from the video for his single, Sisi Eko remix which features Flavour N’abania.

Shot in lagos, the video features cameo appearances from Ali Baba, Jimmy JATT, Tosyn Bucknor, Julius Agwu, Omawumi, Waje, Skales, Kaffy, Christopher Okagbue (Gulder Ultimate Search 8 winner), TeeY Mix , Mo’eazy and many others.

We cant wait for the video to drop.

Another interesting thing about the video is Darey will most likely break a trend of what he is known for doing in his videos. Can you guess what it is?

Anyways, check out the pics.

multi Talented artiste, darey returns with a brand new single. Asiko which features Jozi and Iceprince. Darey is always about Originality. He brings the best to the table. Asiko is one of them,Lovely song.

Listen up and share your thoughts…..

    One year after releasing his double album “Double Dare” King of R&B Darey Art Alade has released a smashing new cut – the first single from his forthcoming fifth album.

    Titled ‘Asiko’, Darey’s new single is diverse in style, exciting in vocal delivery and generally super confident in theme. And the music giant recruits beloved South African group Jozi and acclaimed rapper Ice Prince, to deliver a material that’ll please fans across Africa and beyond.

    Darey, a multiple award-winning singer-songwriter, regarded as king and pathfinder for the R&B genre in Africa, says “Asiko is Way ahead of my time; it is something fresh and futuristic”.

    “I am never scared of stretching my imagination. Africa is the future, and the world will know that through our music”.

    The new work, he says, is “a product of an unquenchable desire to make good music even better; and make happy fans even happier”

    Produced by Chocolate City’s Jesse Jagz and the Soul Muzik team, Asiko blends Pop, indigenous sounds and rap music to create a collaboration that’ll break music barriers and open a new vista in African music.

    “Working with Jesse Jagz, Jozi and Ice Prince was really nice, I love the fact that we come from different music backgrounds. They have this flavor that’s good for the kind of music we wanted to make, and they loved the idea, the music. It was fun all the way…”

    After the release of his last single “Sisi Eko” (remix, featuring Flavor) in July 2011, Darey took a brief time out to handle a couple of high profile gigs – hosting popular TV musical reality show, Glo Naija Sings, Gulder Ultimate Search and Amstel Malta Showtime to name a few. Then he followed up with the signing of his protégé Mo Eazy, as well as putting together machinery to drive his label Soul Muzik to the top.

The multiple award-winner says he first noticed the young rapper’s remarkable talent while working in London many years back.

“Mo’Eazy is a very talented artiste and I am happy he is the first artiste we’d be signing at Soul Muzik. I also like the fact that he is determined and hardworking, and we are committed to seeing that he achieves all that he sets to do’ Darey says

Darey adds “His first single “Ko Soro” which I co-produced will be released this week, and I can’t help but feel like a proud father”

Kosoro, meaning ‘end of discussion’ in Yoruba is a feel good song, a fun filled track that celebrates the liberal spirit. Mo’ Eazy’s first official single from Soul Muzik reflects his infectious personality and swagger and pays no attention to haters of fun. This track gives you the time of your life and shows you how a real star starts a party. The song was produced by Soul Muzik, co-produced by Darey Art Alade and written by Mo’Eazy.

Since his return from the UK , Mo’ Eazy has performed at various events within and outside Nigeria. He released his first official single with Soul Muzik titled “Ko Soro” on Wednesday, February 22, 2012.

He says, “Coming back to Nigeria to continue music was a huge step for me but I am glad I took that step because I have met a lot of inspiring people along the way. Working with Darey and getting signed under Soul Muzik Records is a huge achievement for me because I am now working with a very experienced management. Work is already in progress as we are working on a couple of tracks already and I released my first single with Soul Muzik on Wednesday, February 22, 2012. A music video is also in the works so I must say I am pleased to be part of this team!”

Since signing with Soul Muzik, Mo’Eazy’s profile has risen tremendously. He has collaborated with major Nigerian artistes such as Darey, 2face and Modenine. He has already recorded over 25 tracks in Soul Muzik Studios in preparation for his yet untitled debut album. Without an album out in Nigeria, he has already played some of the biggest stages, such as the Calabar Carnival and Rhythm Unplugged sharing the stage with D’banj, P Square, 2face, Wizkid, Darey and a host of others.
There’s much promise for the rising star, as he continues to add to his growing fan base by connecting with new and old fans alike via social media as well as performing constantly at events across Nigeria and the rest of Africa.
