Exclusive Interview With Carol Jiani @Caroljiani2 @basebabaonline

by
1, How did you get started?

Thank you so much for interviewing me…It is amazing music was accidental. I came from a traumatic background.My dad was a polygamist and i was treated very badly by the woman that my dad had an affair with and abused by her family.

Long story short really when i started to fight back and knew that things were not right my dad thought it was best to send me away to live with my older sister in Washington DC..My sister the late Miriam Ikejiani Clark of Political Science Department and former minister of State FCT. and her husband at the time my brother in law the late… Dr Chuba Okadigbo was President Of The Senate Of Nigeria sometimes referred to as the OYI Of Oyi.

Now when Chuba’s younger brother John died in a car accident returning back to Virginia where he was studying medicine.. His death shook Chuba and he decided he had to return home to Nigeria.

Now when i was sent back to live with my dad i was still rebellious and fighting for my rights and mothers rights my dad then thought it was best to send me away to Montreal Canada.

It is amazing that people think just because one comes from a privileged background that things should be all roses noooooo.

Long story short my dad put me on on a plane and left me in Montreal where i continued in my education.Now my dad should have protected me. He did not he allowed the woman and her family to get away with the abuse. My dad did not support me i was then homeless in fact i reached out to the Maurice Cerullo Foundation and told them what happened and they did not help me. I looked older than my age i walked up and down St Catherine Street and explained to them what had happened. Now i started to perform at piano bars to secure a roof over my head and continue in my education. Well, i was part of the Drama Group at Concordia Universtiy and one day a producer came Mr Joe Lagreca gave me his card and i went to see him.

Now my God we then recorded my First Album that was released in my African name Uchenna Ikejiani….my Middle name is Carol…..Second Album Recorded The late Mr Glen Larusso came up with the idea that it would be best to Switch names and use my middle name because it would be easier to pronounce and call me CAROL JIANI. That was the making of Carol Jiani……I recorded the Hit And Run Lover Album that has now become a classic. Hit And Run Lover has become my signature song.

Simply music was accidental it became my most powerful tool for survival and that was how i started my career…ADA NDI IGBO “THE MAKING OF CAROL JIANI”




2, What made you realize that music was your path?

When i was younger my dad used to ask me to sing at parties and he was the one that introduced me to the Artist Millie Jackson..You know African Parents would show you off to their friends at parties but would say to you that you had to get your degree it had to be Medicine, Law or become and Architect….hahahahahaha so i guess the gift was placed in me really but it was when i was in trouble that my vocal ability saved me and i had to fight for survival and i knew that music was a powerful platform for surviving.

3, Who are your influences?

My influences God the late Teddy Pendergrass. Millie Jackson. Tina Turner. Fela…They just don’t make them like this anymore. In the good old days, we perfected our gifts by working hard…..

4, What makes your music unique?

As a Nigerian Recording Artist established in the West my music is unique in the sense that still following old school my songs have great melody lines..My vocals are far superior because i have been in the business for so long i perfected my gift and ….I sing live and i do not mime at shows..We must respect the fans because without the fans we would not be who we are.

The instrumentation and production are simply the best and classy….My music is uplifting and hey i can sing hahaha .

5, How long does it usually take you to write a song?

It depends it varies really one can write a song in 10mins it can take a year to perfect a song.
An example through the loss of my son Chuka that died from a rare form of Brain Tumour …It comes easy because of the pain i have so much to say to him …I have written songs since his death and it took me no more than 20 mins to come up with the melody line and lyrics.



6, Where would you most like to perform?

God, i have performed all over the world but at the moment my passion i would love and intend to perform in Nigeria. Using music as a platform to help raise awareness of how traumatic Cancer is. The lack of facilities in Nigeria all over Africa. The hospitals are not equipped the lack of working Radiotherapy Machines back home.
The plan is to perform there and use music to help make a change back home
Music and sports are powerful tools crazy as it sounds i would love to have my own football team…Getting the youths of the streets .To perform at the biggest stadium in Nigeria bringing all together for a great cause.
An Evening with Nigerian Recording Artist Carol Jiani at the Hard Rock Cafe Lagos..too hahaha

7, What’s next for you?

I have so much going on at the moment i am lucky. I have four singles ready to be released and also collaborating with other Artists also.
On the 23rd of Feb my single is being released in Canada ..World Wide also.

Failure pushed me into becoming online comedian – Omo Ibadan

by
Adeyela Adebola, aka Omo Ibadan, is a rising star known for her funny skits. In this chat with TOFARATI IGE, she speaks about her career and many other issues

What motivated you to start comedy skits?

It is often said that boredom precedes moments of great creativity. It all started when I was denied admission to study Microbiology at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State. My name was removed from the admission list and I don’t know why that happened till date. I was at home alone and different thoughts started coming to me. I decided to put them into skits and that was how I started uploading comedy skits online. In a way, it was failure and setback that pushed me into becoming an online comedian. However, I have always been a carefree and playful person. Before I started uploading skits on Instagram, I had a lot of fans on Facebook who always liked to see my updates because they were usually hilarious. That’s why people were not really surprised when I started doing video skits because they knew that I have always been funny.

When exactly did you start uploading video skits?

I started around May 2017. On the particular day I started, I was at home and I suddenly had an idea to post an update on Facebook but I felt it would be better if I did it in video format so that people would really understand the message I wanted to pass across. I asked my elder brother to help me shoot the video and I uploaded it online. The joke was about how girls from different states, including Ibadan, sleep.



Which schools did you attend?

I attended the School of Science, Ile-Ife, Osun State, for my post-elementary education. I also attended the Federal Polytechnic, Ede, Osun State, where I bagged an Ordinary National Diploma in Science Laboratory Technology. Right now, I am a student of The Polytechnic, Ibadan, for my Higher National Diploma in Microbiology.

What were your childhood ambitions?

As a child, I wanted to become a medical doctor. I have always wanted to make people happy. I wanted to keep people alive by finding cures to diseases and other things. That was the major reason I wanted to become a doctor; so I could save lives. Now that I am a comedian, I feel I am still in line with my goals because I make people happy with what I do; and it is often said that laughter is the best medicine.

Do you also perform stand-up comedy?

Yes, I do. However my style of stand-up comedy is more like stage drama; it is similar to what I do in my videos with the coaching centre theme. In that case, the audience would be the students and everybody would have fun.

Did you enjoy the support of your parents when you started your comedy career?

Yes, they offered me their full support. I believe that I am lucky for having parents like mine. I actually started my entertainment career with music and I have recorded a lot of songs. I recall that my father always wanted to hear my songs first. He used to call me even when I was in the studio to encourage me. Both my dad and mum always share my comedy skits with their friends. I really appreciate them.

What are some of the memorable experiences of your childhood?

I didn’t grow up in an expensive neighbourhood; though it wasn’t also a ghetto. There were a lot of children in the compound where I grew up and we used to play a lot. My nickname as a child was Sibi Onike (plastic spoon) and I would tell you the story behind it. Whenever it was time to go to school, I always found one reason or the other why I could not go because I hated school as a kid. I used to cry whenever they wanted to take me to school and I would tell my mum that I wanted plastic spoon, and whenever she gave me that, I would tell her that I wanted an iron spoon. Even when she gave me the iron spoon, I would reject it again and say I wanted plastic spoon. I also had another nickname, Bola on the mango tree. I remember that my mum bought me a dress with the inscription, ‘Bom’ and the elderly ones around used to joke that the Bom was an abbreviation for Bola on the mango tree. I had a lot of fun as a child and sometimes, I wish I could go back to being a kid.

Are you based in Ibadan?

I wouldn’t say yes or no. These days, I spend more time in Ibadan though I am based in Ile-Ife because that is where my parents live.

What skit led to your breakthrough?

It was the one titled, I109-attention. It was the first coaching centre skit that led to my breakthrough. When I recorded that skit, I was on the sick bed and I uploaded it on Facebook. Right from the hospital, I saw that the skit had gone viral. Some patients in the hospital were watching the skit and I was quite amazed. When I logged in to Instagram, I saw that the skit had also been shared on that platform several times.

What are the most memorable times of your career?

I believe that every day is memorable. I don’t think that there is any day that is more special than the rest.

What has been the most embarrassing moment in your career?

I don’t think I have experienced any form of embarrassment since I started my comedy skits. However, an incident happened the first day I was invited to compere a wedding reception but I don’t want to talk about it because of the people involved.

Some people think that you truly cannot speak English language well. Is that true?

It is true that I cannot speak English well; it is not my mother tongue (laughs). Seriously though, I can speak English and I can communicate well. My accent in the comedy skits is part of the act.

How do you get inspiration for your skits?

I am more creative when I am alone. However, I get ideas from almost everything around me but I need to be alone to build on the ideas. At times, when I discuss with my friends and family, I pick some ideas from our conversations and develop them into skits.

Some people also feel that you portray Ibadan people as ‘local’. Do you agree with that?

No, I don’t portray Ibadan people as being local. I love the accent of Ibadan people and I think I am just trying to promote it, not denigrate it. If anybody says that I am portraying Ibadan people as being local, then it means I am also local. If I could mimic any other language or accent, I would also use it for comedy.

How often do you advertise for people?

I do that quite a lot these days. However, I always give my clients specific time frames that their adverts would be done so that I don’t put too much pressure on myself and also bombard my fans with adverts.

Do you do other jobs apart from comedy?

I don’t have other jobs apart from comedy because I am still a student. However, I have several other interests apart from comedy. I am a singer and writer. As a matter of fact, I discovered my comedy talent through writing. Through my writings on social media, I have met several intellectual people, including professors, that I never thought I would have the opportunity of meeting.

What do you hope to achieve with your career?

I have a lot of plans. I always pray that God shouldn’t just bless me; He should make me a blessing to my generation. I want to impact lives. I don’t want something that would impact me alone.

What are your hobbies?

I like to play. Even when I meet people for the first time, I relate with them as if I had known them for years. I also love reading and dancing. I love books that inspire me and lift my spirit. Then, I like to be alone and in those moments, I write a lot.

Are you in a relationship at the moment?

No, I am not.

What are the ideal qualities you like in a man?

I don’t really have a list of ideal qualities but I love dark and intelligent guys; a man with a cool personality. I don’t get carried away by material things; so I don’t care whether you are rich or not. Once I believe in you and you believe in my dreams as well, then, we are ready to go.

How do you like to dress?

I love dressing like a boy. I usually turn out in shirts, trousers and sneakers. My favourite fashion items are sneakers and other shoes. I can spend any amount on them.

My fight with Wizkid helped me to be better – Saeon

by
Singer, Oluwaseun Oni, aka Saeon, has been off the scene for a while but many wouldn’t forget in a hurry, her spat with Wizkid, which culminated in the Starboy singer threatening to beat her up.

However, in a recent chat with Saeon, she hinted that she has since moved on. Responding to a question on whether she has forgiven Wizkid, she said, “One of the reasons I decided to title my latest single as Rebirth is because I have come to realise that many things we go through in life are meant to teach us lessons which shape us for the better and I believe everything that has happened – none of which I regret – has led me to this point.”


On what led to her absence from the industry, Saeon stated, “I had a tough but interesting 2017. I lost my dad midway through the year and I kept a low profile afterwards because he was dear to me. He inspired my love for songwriting and music generally. He was my number one supporter; so, losing him felt like I had lost a huge part of me. I had to take time to process it and to be with my family. I’m happy to be back to work and I know he would want me to forge ahead and keep following my dreams.”

Maintaining that she still has what it takes to hold her own in the industry, Saeon said, “I don’t do what I do to compete. I make music to fulfill my purpose. I make music to inspire, reform and connect people. I make music for arts and culture. I make music for the people.”

Why I signed mother of two – Harrysong

by
Harrison Tare Okiri, better known as Harrysong, has been questioned for signing Lami Phillips, a mother of two, to his record company, Altetplate Music.

However, while speaking with Sunday Scoop, Harrysong said music had nothing to do with age and that he was convinced of Phillips’ talent. He explained, “She is full of talent and she does good music. If an artiste understands music, it will be easier for one to relate to him or her. It is not about the age; it is about what she has to offer. Her music relates to people of different ages.

“Don’t forget that I am also a songwriter too. I saw something special in her and I believe it is something that every other person will enjoy too. 2Baba is an older artiste, but we still enjoy his music.”



Revealing his plans to sign more artistes, Harrysong stated, “We will still sign songwriters and producers as well because we want to give people behind the scenes an opportunity. We have signed Lami and we are unveiling her soon. We have two other artistes we plan to unveil too. One of the artistes is less than 20 years old and he can produce and sing.

“We look at the ability of an individual, not the age. Do you know how many young people that have sent in their songs and I didn’t like them? They will tell you they can sing, but cannot deliver. If you see an older person who is doing well, it will be unwise to ignore her. We are a music company; it is about the music first before the business.”

I Knew The Songs Were Bad – Jim Iyke

by
Nollywood actor Jim Iyke has shared his reason for his brief foray into the music industry several years ago.
Iyke had in 2009 released “Who Am I” featuring 2Baba, and in 2010 followed up with “Born to Do This” featuring Puffy T.

In an interview with Punch, Iyke described his music career as “non-existent.”

He knew he had no talent in music, he said, but wanted to know how the industry worked. He said:
My music career is non-existent. My mentor in business once told me that the biggest investment you can ever have is yourself; don’t ever go into a venture that you don’t understand.

I was interested in music and like everything else that I have foresight for, I saw where the career was going. I knew I did not know how to sing but I wanted to invest in the business, so I decided to try my luck. I did it so that no one would ever tell me that I did not try or I do not know anything about music.

Jim Iyke went on to admit that he knew his songs were bad. He went on to question the number of talents present in the industry at the moment.

Most of the less talented ones are far ahead of the more talented ones, he said. Of course, I knew the songs were bad; I am my greatest critic. I had to put some ‘swag’ into the songs that featured Tuface to sing one or two lines. To be honest, how many true talents are in the industry at the moment? Most of the less talented ones are getting far ahead of the talented ones.

It is not about having talent but understanding the business and project what works for you. It is all about the way you ‘package’ it and sell it to the world; that is all. I can name a few terrible artistes but they are getting way ahead of the gifted ones. It is because they understand show business; I understand show business.
