Nollywood actress and director Funke Akindele recently spoke about how singer D’banj helped her continue her successful Jenifa character. At a celebration for D’banj’s 20th anniversary in entertainment, Akindele revealed how D’banj motivated her to keep the Jenifa brand going.

They met at a club, and D’banj, a big fan of Jenifa, asked if there would be more movies.

Akindele was surprised because she hadn’t planned on making more. D’banj saw the potential in Jenifa and convinced Akindele it could be very profitable. To show his support, D’banj even gave her money to make new Jenifa movies. This led to the creation of “The Return of Jenifa,” a big hit that brought the character back to life.

She said,

“After the big break with Jenifa, everybody loved Jenifa so much, I was out there and everyone was celebrating me so much. I was invited to a club where I met Dbanj for the first time and he gave me his number and inquired if there is a sequence to Jenifa, I told him No and he questioned why as he noted how Jenifa is a brand I can feast on for the rest of my life. 

“He told me that when I have a brand, you feed on the brand, you milk the brand very well and make money out of it. Out of his pocket, he gave me money and said I should go write another Jenifa and he supports me with the money.”

Akindele didn’t just thank D’banj; she showered him with praise! She called him more than just a musician – he’s a whole movement! She explained how his music has made countless people happy and said his influence will definitely last a long time.

“Dbanj you’re more than just a musician, you’re a movement! Your music has brought joy to our hearts, and your legacy will live on forever,” Akindele affirmed.

Whitemoney Says He Pays His 150 Employees Five Years In Advance

Reality TV star Whitemoney, whose real name is Hazel Oyeze Onou, recently surprised fans with a revelation about his business practices. In an interview with Echoo Room, Whitemoney claimed to have a whopping 150 employees on his payroll! That’s a significant number of people who rely on him for their income.

But here’s the even more surprising part: Whitemoney says he doesn’t believe in the traditional monthly pay cycle. According to him, he actually pays his staff members their salaries up to five years in advance! This might sound unbelievable, but Whitemoney explained his reasoning behind this unconventional approach.

He says that by pre-paying his employees, he avoids the hassle and stress of managing monthly payroll. Imagine the administrative burden of processing payroll for 150 people every month. Whitemoney seems to believe that pre-paying eliminates that headache entirely.

The host asked, “I’ve heard that you pay staff members a couple of years in advance; five years, three years in advance. Is this true?”

Whitemoney replied, “To be honest, it is. I operate on that system because it helps me take my mind off things. The way I set up my system is because I’m versatile; I do a lot of things, and I can easily get carried away. Currently, I have 150 staff members.”

Of course, some questions naturally arise from this revelation. For instance, how does Whitemoney manage his cash flow if he’s essentially giving out large sums of money upfront? Is there any kind of contract or agreement in place to ensure his employees fulfil their job duties for the entire five-year period after receiving their salaries? These are details Whitemoney hasn’t publicly addressed yet.

One thing’s for sure, Whitemoney’s approach to payroll is certainly unconventional. While it might work for him and his specific business model, it’s not likely a strategy that could be easily replicated by everyone.

Kendrick Lamar Asks Drake To Return 2Pac’s Ring If He Wants Some Respect

The war of words between rap titans Kendrick Lamar and Drake shows no signs of abating.

At a recent concert in Los Angeles, Kendrick Lamar threw down the gauntlet at Drake. This reignited the feud with a fiery performance of his diss tracks “Not Like Us” and “Euphoria.”

The electrifying atmosphere at the Forum on June 19th, 2024 was a testament to the impact of “Not Like Us.” The crowd, a sea of Kendrick supporters, roared their approval. They sang along to every word of the track that shattered streaming records on Spotify in the US. This wasn’t just a performance; it was a full-blown battle cry.

But Kendrick wasn’t content with just one diss track. During his performance of “Euphoria,” he took things a step further. With a few pointed lyric tweaks, he aimed a direct message at Drake with, “Give me Tupac’s ring back and I might give you a little respect” instead of “Matter of fact, I ain’t even bleed him yet, can I bleed him.”

This back-and-forth between the rappers has become a media spectacle. Fans eagerly await Drake’s next move and wonder how he’ll respond to Kendrick’s fiery performance.

According to Billboard, Drake bought the ring for $1 million and the Canadian rapper has constantly boasted about his purchase. He even flaunted it in the music video for his Kendrick Lamar diss track “Family Matters.”
