by Nigeria Music Network / 2,135 Views

Starboy Wizkid covers the all new Y! Magazine. Yes, Nigerian Popstar Wizkid Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun boldly covers the latest issue of Y! Magazine March 2013 where he reportedly says "EME is my family". Learn more!


In the cover story titled ‘No kidding’, Wizkid speaks frankly about his background, the history of his music, the evolution of his sound and the people who have made him what he is now – including former manager Osagie Osarenkhoe and Empire Mates Entertainment boss Banky W.

The shoot was anchored by the iconic Kelechi Amadi-Obi, with styling by Toyin Lawani of Tiannah Styling.

“EME Is My Family” -Wizkid

Could the rumors be true? That Wizkid is no longer signed to Empire Mates Entertainment (EME Records)? One could easily interpret Wizkid's "EME is my family" statement on Y! Magazine in so many ways, but the full story is on the Magazine's latest print edition when you grab a copy.

Information from sources explained that "if we really want to be analytical about Wizkid's statement “EME Is My Family”, that technically doesn’t mean he’s still a part of the label, it’s like not getting along with your sister or brother, you don’t want to do business with them, but they are still blood.

Speaking on the issue, Chude Jideonwo, Editor-in-Chief of Y! said “As this magazine went to print, the rumours were just about confirmed in public and sources had certainly confirmed in private. The amazing talent powerhouse called Wizkid had aggressively parted ways with EME, the label powered by Banky W – interesting news in light of what he told us only weeks before.”

Based on your observation of the whole Wizkid and Banky W's EME Records breakup scenario; in your own opinion - do you think Wizkid and Banky W have truly parted ways, but still friends?

The web, especially the Nigerian online community, is buzzing about the surprise engagement, which actually happened during a surprise birthday get together for the sensational singer Tiwa Savage, who is also the first lady of MAVIN Records.

According to TheNET report, Tee Billz made a formal proposal to Tiwa Savage on February 5, 2013, her birthday, and just nine days before Valentine’s Day. The romantic moment was witnessed by a few celebrity friends, including Tiwa’s Mavin Records boss Don Jazzy, Dr SID, Banky W, Beat FM Personality Toolz and several others.

The pair had consistently denied the relationship, and when marriage rumours surfaced weeks ago, their denials became even more vehement. But the past few days proved they had gotten tired of living a lie, with photos and tweets from Lagos and Dubai confirming what they’d been trying to hide.

The whole Nigerian online community is happy to hear Tiwa Savage is engaged. Tee Billz is Tiwa Savage manager and CEO of 323 Entertainment, and both have been dating somewhat secretly for a long time. Below is a YouTube video showing how the proposal went down:

Ife Wa Gbona Meaning

What does Ife wa gbona mean? If you've ever wanted to know what Tiwa Savage's "Ife wa gbona" mean, you are a good thinker, a knowledge seeker, and a true Nigerian music lover.

In the Yoruba language, "Ife" means "Love", and "Wa" means "Come" but in this context - it means "Our" or "Us". Not to forget, "Gbona
" in Yoruba means "Hot". So, Tiwa Savage's "Ife Wa Gbona" means "Our Love is Hot".

It is important to note that Tiwa Savage is the first lady of Mavin Records - where Don Jazzy, a multi-
award winning record producer, manages Nigerian artists on the label including but not limited to Wande Coal, Dr. Sid, D'Prince, etc.

Watch the music video for Tiwa Savage's Ife Wa Gbona ft. Leo Wonder.

Nigerian music is here to say, and it promotes bi-lingualism, which is a feat every Nigerian should possess in order to understand three Nigeria's major languages: Yoruba, Igbo, and Hausa.
