NIGERIAN MUSICIANS, DANFO DRIVER INSISTS THEY HAVE NOT EARNED A DIME FROM PRODUCERS OF AMERICAN MOVIE 'PHAT GIRLZ' WHO USED THEIR SONG


...Been home since yesterday because of a small accident I had on my way to the house from work.
A reckless driver knocked me into the gutter yesterday afternoon.So, let’s do this from my bed. At home, I am now a baby!!!
I cried so much yesterday as Toks, my brother came to help me massage the leg.
Nevertheless, this blog would be one year old in three days time (9 January 2009 to be precise). So, we should celebrate!

Secondly, there is a gist I just flagged off via gistmaster.com.Its no more news that Tuface Idibia and Danfo Drivers were lucky to have their songs used in the high selling American comedy movie, PHAT GIRLZ.While, Tuface went on to achieve more fame and fortune and trust all the hype through his Keke Ogungbe, the Danfo Drivers are lamenting that they have not received a dime from the producers.

  2. congratulations on the anniversary of your blog. While I think it is unfair that the folks whose song was used in the movie 'Phat Girlz' have not been compensated. I also think that the 100s of musicians whose music has been exploited on Naija home videos and in Naija jingles should also be compensated in the same token. Starting with Kenny G whose instrumentals have been endlessly used in Naija home videos
