I Am Done Releasing Albums In Nigeria - Mode 9

Nigerian rap legend, Mode 9, has been off the music waves for sometime after he announced that his latest project, ‘Insulin,’ would be his last album released in Nigeria. Some believed the veteran rap artiste was about to hang his boot and retire from music. However, while chatting with Saturday Beats, Mode 9 said that he was sticking to his decision and that he was no longer releasing albums on the shores of Nigeria. He also debunked insinuations that he was retiring from music.

He said, “After this last album, ‘Insulin,’ I am done releasing albums in Nigeria. I purposely did not make too much noise about this album, I just released it and those who appreciate it have been giving me positive feedback. I don’t know if I would release more albums but I am very certain that I would not release any other album in Nigeria. I can release my album somewhere else but not here in Nigeria.

“I have not given up on Nigeria but did Nigerians not give up on me? Things are not like they were about seven years ago. Things are getting too difficult, so I decided to release this ‘Insulin’ album and I am done here. I already have my next chapter planned out. I am not retiring from music and Nigerians should not worry about me. I have left a lot of materials for them and they can always go and buy and listen to them. I am happy this last album made an incredible impact especially on my core fan base. This is the most airplay I have got in a while ever since I became an independent artiste. It is always good to step aside when the ovation is loudest.”

Edo Elections: APC Foresaw Defeat, Says PDP Chieftain

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on the Plateau and former member of the National Assembly, Hon George Daika, has described the postponement of the Edo State gubernatorial elections earlier slated for this Saturday under the guise of security challenge as a clear sign that the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) is jittery having foreseen defeat ahead of it in the elections.

Addressing journalists in Jos on Friday, he described the advice by the Police and the DSS for the postponement, the initial refusal by the INEC to accept the postponement, the insistence by Adams Oshiomhole and the eventual consent by the INEC as orchestrations of the APC to make people believe that there’s any truth in them, adding that Nigerians are wiser than that.
