Davido’s camp have released pictures of his injured bodyguard, TJ, who was allegedly stabbed twice, in the neck and the hand, by the DJ of the club. They also released a press statement explaining what happened that day below:

The facts: DJ Jaydee of Grotto stabbed Davido’s bodyguards, evades police

Falsified accounts of a recent incident at the Grotto club on Sunday have made the rounds. Davido’s Management hereby wishes to clear the air on them with the statement below.

After a successful outing at a recent concert on Sunday November 3 at Eko Hotels, popular musician Davido headed to the Grotto Nightclub on Victoria Island. After a brief stay at the club, Davido and his crew proceeded to his vehicle outside to head home. Upon entering the vehicle, he realized that his ATM card was missing. His body guard TijaniOlamilekanOgbeidebetter known as Teejay got down from the vehicle to search for the ATM card in the club.

Upon alighting, he was accosted by an already drunk ‘DJ Jide Jay Dee’who had in his hand a champagne flute. This DJ Jaydee informed Teejay that he had the ATM card in his hand and would like to personally deliver it to Davido. Teejay politely asked him to hand over the ATM card as it was clear that Davido was right in his view in his car. DJ Jaydee refused to hand over the card without payment and instead proceeded to shout that he knew who Davido was personally and that he [DJ Jaydee]was a known person in Lagos. Teejay refusd him access to Davido which led DJ Jaydee to throw the ATM card on the ground  in anger. As Teejay bent to retrieve the card, DJ Jaydee stabbed him in the neck with the champagne flute he was holding. An oblivious Teejay threw him off his back and proceeded to return the ATM card to Davido. As he was entering the car to leave, one of the occupants noticed the stab wounds and called his attention to the blood. Teejay promptly alighted from the car and went to confront DJ Jaydee who was still yelling outside.DjJaydee apparently not done with his violence stabbed the bodyguard a second time, this time on his hands and ran off into the club. Teejay searched for him to no avail and left the club soon after.

Tijani Olamilekan Ogbeide has since reported the matter to the police and they have been to the club to invite DJ Jaydee for questioning. Grotto has been unable to deliver DJ Jaydee to the police, instead malicious and falsified accounts of the incident have found their way on social media portals being championed of course by sources intent on casting vile aspersions on Davido  and his bodyguard Teejay. DjJaydee is yet to surface.Tijani Olamilekan Ogbeide has pressed charges to this effect.
Davido’s management categorically refutes all the allegations of violence as insinuated by some. Teejay was carrying out his job by restricting access to Davido from an unknown and obviously inebriated and violent individual. He performed his duties as bodyguard and instead of resorting to violence, followed the dictates of the law.Members of the public and fans should please note that Davido was not present at this unfortunate incident that occurred that night as erroneously reported in a few quarters. 
Thank You

THE line-up of events and international artistes coming to Ghana this December keeps getting exciting and the latest to join is Jamaican singer, poetess and actress, Dianna Wright.
The US based artiste will be in Accra to shoot the video of her trending song, Ahoo and also participate in events to mark the festive season.

The song is already being played on some radio stations in Ghana and Jamaica and Dianna who is signed to 16-Bars Multimedia LLC, hopes to cement its popularity with the video which will be shot in a village setting in Ghana.

While here, she is also open to shows and collaborations with local artistes and bands.

Dianna who was part of acts for the Hands Across Africa concert held at the National Theatre in July said she selected Ghana to shoot the video for the love she has for the country.

“When I come to Ghana, it’s just like home, Ghana is a bigger Jamaica. I love how the people dance with so much energy. I will feature some young and talented dancers in my video. I love the newness, vibe and energy anytime I am there.

“For the video, I want a natural setting and it was Ghana that first came to mind, the unique and serene villages in Ghana is the kind of vibe I am looking for,” she said.

With the exception of her engineer and a couple of her team members, Dianna will use Ghanaian based creatives for her production saying, “there is no point flying in many professionals as Ghana has them in abundance. There are so many talents here who can help us execute this project perfectly”, she added.

As a way of giving back to the Ghanaian society, she adopted the drama troupe of the Manya Krobo Senior High School and supports the group regularly.

Orente Official Cover

Philip NeeWhang is set to release yet another sensational new song titled “Orente”. The single which transforms Dany Starking’s original – Orente released in 2022 has been made over again with a fresh new breath and vocal from the sensational musical artist – Philip NeeWhang. Orente is a song that is sure to burst your brains with its smooth and melodic romantic afrobeat vibes much desired in today’s music market.

When asked what influenced Philip NeeWhang to do a cover of the song and re-release it under his vocals, he stated “The first time I listened to the song, it transported me to a different realm, I felt good, I loved the song, I did not even think I would be doing a cover on it but then I kept singing it over and over and over and then I realized, – I need to pick on this challenge and do my very first cover song and which better song than this new track which has just struck me in the heart”. The original track is one released by Dany Starking, a Nigerian musical artiste presently based in Ghana.

The song which was largely sung in English heavily uses the ‘broken’ Nigerian pronunciation style of speech and uses some native Yoruba words within its lyrical flow shockingly, Philip NeeWhang stays true to the song’s lyrics and style, often diverting to his vocal pitch as slight differences can be observed in the version released by Dany Starking and the one by Philip NeeWhang – You need to hear how the Ghanaian Musical Artist loses himself to the lyrics singing it so beautifully and true to its core, it baffles the brain.

The original as covered by Philip NeeWhang shockingly is produced, mixed, and mastered by the same sound engineer – King Kueyx under CockaStudiox who worked on Dany Starking’s original giving immerse room for improvement on the cover by Philip. Philip NeeWhang who has been hailed as the next big hit in Ghana you need to watch out for and aiming for international status has already earned 19 original songs released to his credit inclusive of Two (2) EPs which contain four (4) tracks each.
