Our favorite Afro-Pop maestro J Martins returns with the stunning visuals for international club hit ‘Faro’. Impeccably shot and directed by MattmaxFaro carries over the spirit of its audio counterpart, losing none of the vibe and energy that have made it a huge club favorite across the African continent. With appearances from guest artist DJ Arafat, as well as the ever-delightful Kaffy and her dance troupe, Faro excels in delighting the viewer, and delivers a wonderful showcase of J Martins at his finest.

J Martins

Veteran hit-maker J Martins kicks off his exploits in 2014 with a melodious treat for fans and music lovers all over the continent. Showing the importance of sticking with a winning formula, J Martins reunites with past conspirators DJ Arafat with his energetic chants and additional vocals by Fally Ipupa – to deliver yet another incredibly rhythmic and movement-inducing club banger titled Faro.

On Faro, J Martins makes gratitude the centerpiece, as he thanks God for the blessings and protections he (as well as his other friends) has received over the recent years. Listing names such as Bracket, Flavor, IllBliss, Timaya, Naeto C, Phyno, Wizboyy, P-Square, K-Cee, and Mr Raw among others, J Martins displays a deep humility and also expounds on the need to keep one’s feet firmly rooted.

DJ Arafat, who was a major part of the success of J Martins last effort – the monstrously successful ‘Touching Body’ – picks up where he left off and keeps the energy levels in the song surging all through. Together with Fally Ipupa – with whom he created the club hit Jukpa – the trio unites the continent with yet another anthem that is oblivious to geographical boundaries and cultures.

“No matter how successful you become, it’s always important to remember the source of your blessings. Looking at my life and the lives of my friends, there is a lot to be grateful to God for. And that is what Faro is about. I would like to thank God for saving my brother Fally Ipupa who survived a major motor accident last December. Thanks to my great friend and brother DJ Arafat, my humble appreciation goes to my die-hard fans and the media for their continued priceless support” says J Martins.

mystreetzmag Cover 16 500_J. MARTINS
Lovers of music magazine, MyStreetz are in for a treat as international pop star J. Martins is ‘relentless’ on the cover of the publication’s latest edition which hits stores soon.
According to Sesan Adeniji, Publisher of Mystreetz Magazine,
“With the reception that followed the recent celebration of Ebenezer Obey’s Evergreen Music, and the hype that surrounds King Sunny Ade’s 50 years on stage, one can conclude that whatever is unique will always find space in the face of trending substance.  What made these artistes Legends all these years is because their sound distinctively stands out amongst their peers.  How many of today’s trending artistes in the Nigerian music scene will command such respect in the next twenty years?
As I search for answers to this question, if all things remain the same, few names such as Asa, Tu Face, Burna Boy, Sound Sultan and especially J.Martins to mention a few, will stand the chance to attain such a legendary statue. What J.Martins brings to the music scene from inception, is nothing short of class and a unique sound that is tapped from the accumulated work of several of Nigerian and African great Highlife icons. J.Martins’ endless quest for fresh sound in the face of trending sound performed by his peers, has justified his success in the Nigerian music industry and Africa at large. He is constantly pushing the envelope for greater music union within the African scene; he has arguably unified the African sound. Welcome to the world of The Relentless J.Martins.
At Mystreetz Magazine, we will constantly tell the stories of the Nigerian music industry based on the facts of the content and not dictated by trend; The story of the ordinary achievers like you and me, The story of the guy/girl on the radio/Tv stations tirelessly airing the music, those producing the music, the stylist, photographers, makeup artists, the song writers, journalist and most especially the amazing fans adding value. This is history worth sharing.
This edition will be at all newsstands soon!”

Well we saw something like this coming right?

A few weeks ago, WizKid made a comment on his instagram page reacting to a diss from a fan on his photo. The comment made headlines all over twitter and caused a lot of people to react negatively towards him.

...

Just yesterday, VanguardNGR reported that J-martins had blasted WizKid over the comment he made to the fan in question. Here is what VanguardNGR reported that J-martins said:

I’m not taking any side, don’t mean no beef, no disrespect, and no hate but let the truth be told. I don’t believe because you feel you have a few change you didn’t have a few years ago and which you cannot guarantee having in a few years to come then you wake up and look at those people who have cheered you up, loved you, supported your music, bought your CD’s, prayed for you, just because you can lay your hands on some phone and you call them ‘poor’. Am not in and will never be in support of anyone who has such bad attitude.

“It needs to be corrected, we owe our fans the duty of being good examples that’s why they hold us in high esteem, that’s why you are a role model and if you know you cannot be a good role model you have no business in Music. You don’t know if it’s that person that might help you tomorrow, whoever does that should be checked.

“You have to decide why you are in the music industry. If you know you cannot be a role model then you have no business being there”

WizKid took to twitter not too long ago to defend himself and also state that he’s disappointed in J-Martins for making such a statement.

 

 

...

Well in yet another twist J-Martins have come out on twitter to say that he didn’t make a statement against WizKid and that the reports are false.

 

So now, what do we make of all this? Apologies might be needed all around at this point.
