Exploits Of Afrobeats Apostle, P Priime

Published

on

For Peace Aderogba Oredope, popularly known as P.Priime, age truly is nothing but a number. At the age of 15, the singer was already making music for leading Nigerian artistes including Zlatan and Fireboy. Music is like blood through his veins; it fills up his nostrils like oxygen, he breathes and lives music.
It’s hardly three years from that time and the gifted teenager has blossomed into one of the torchbearers of Nigerian trending Afrobeats pop culture. Within just a few years, he has amassed a rich catalogue of music credits.
P.Priime’s Midas touch is felt in songs such as Like I Do of Fireboy’s magnum opus, Laughter, Tears, Goosebumps, Gelato by DJ Cuppy, Egungun by Zlatan and veteran indigenous singer Obesere etc. Perhaps, his biggest accomplishment is influencing the sound of YBNL rapper, Olamide with his record of producing seven out of 12 songs in his latest album, Carpe Diem.
“Age means nothing to me,” he notes, adding, “If anything, I feel privileged and I feel like the universe has put me on a pedestal. As a result of that, I’m the voice for the next generation. I’m well brought up and very disciplined, which makes it quite easy for me. I am very much in touch with older people whom I have around me. Their rich counsel help to keep me in check.”
P.Priime’s music trajectory is heavily influenced from his background, growing up in a music-inclined family, where everyone was a chorister. Born March 28, 2002, Peace Aderogba Oredope attended Nuga Paul Schools, Oke-Afa, which is within proximity of Ejigbo area of Lagos, where he was raised.
From his early age, he picked up rudimentary skills of playing music about five instruments such as piano, drums, guitar, saxophone and trumpet. This exposure was the right pivot that he needed to blossom into one of Nigeria’s most sought-after record producers.
He recalls, “I played a wide variety of musical instruments and genre while in the church choir; that made music sort of easy for me because, I already had more than the basic knowledge needed for music production. My parents were all about me going to school, but at the time I was supposed to go, I didn’t get admission because I was too young. Instead of being idle, I went into graphics designing and somehow ended with music production after a while. It came naturally due to my background. They support me fully on right now as it’s quite obvious I’m making waves with it,” he said.
An alumnus of Sarz Academy, the eponymous mentorship platform run by the brain behind Wizkid’s success, P.Priime already has a unique awareness and direction about his own sound.
He explained: “I’m all about limitless and timeless music. Music is the most beautiful thing in the world; I love music so much and I channel in all that love I have for it into all my productions. When you hear my music, I want you to experience the most spiritual and unreal vibrations resonating throughout your body and mind.”

As symbol of inspiration for young talents, perhaps younger ones can draw a lesson or two from the gifted beat maker.

Nigerian Female Celebrities Are Not Prostitutes -Movie Producer

Published

on

Nigerian movie producer, Samuel Olatunji, popularly known as Bigsam has debunked the idea that successful women in the entertainment industry earn their money through questionable means.
The Public Relations expert took to his Instagram page yesterday to condemn Nollywood actress, Nnaji Charity, who in her Instagram stories wrote that “being a female celebrity in Nigeria is more like an advanced prostitution.”(sic)
“To say her post is uncharitable to women is stating the obvious. What is more uncharitable is the fact that she is a woman (that, I believe because these days, you never can tell), “ the producer said.
He added, “What you are implying is that all these successful female celebrities, both in entertainment and outside entertainment are prostitutes, got to where they are, or are maintaining what they are by prostitution? Nothing could be farther from the truth.
Naming celebrities such as Linda Ikeji, Toyin Abraham, Funke Akindele-Bello, and Ini Edo, the Dear Affy producer attested to lucrative means by which several female celebrities he has worked with, make their money.
He said, “There was a time someone called me to say Linda Ikeji must be doing fraud or advanced prostitution to make the kind of money she has, that year, Linda was charging 50k per post (now it is 150k). I asked the person to open the blog and we did counting of sponsored post for that day as at 6pm, Linda has done about 20 sponsored posts. That year, Linda was raking in about 2 million daily. Before Covid and after, Toyin Abraham was making over 5 million monthly.
“About 10 years ago, we struck a major deal for Ini Edo, my first cut in the money was over 1.5m. Till date, Ini is making legitimate money quietly and in quick succession to have warranted talk that she’s the richest actress in Nigeria. About two or three years ago, Funke Akindele Bello made over 1 million USD from just one of her projects.”(sic)
Also mentioning the likes of Kemi Adetiba, Uche Jumbo, and Lizzy Jay, Bigsam said, “If you see all these women living life and living well, don’t let your limited brain deceive you that they only make it by gracing beds of powerful men (some of these men actually live off them).”
“Women are doing well and it is possible for the upcoming one to do better without turning to prostitution,” he continued.
He further encouraged ladies to ignore the claims by Nnaji as “she doesn’t know what she’s saying.”
