Jay Z, Akon, Miley Cyrus to headline 50th Woodstock festival

Published

Woodstock

American singers Miley Cyrus and Jay-Z as well as African-American music star, Akon, will be among the headliners at the upcoming 50th anniversary concert for Woodstock.

Due to the changed musical landscape in the last fifty years, there will be a mix of pop, hip-hop, and rock artists at the festival and over 80 musical acts will be playing over the course of the three-day music festival at Watkins Glen, New York in August, following the theme of “equality, inclusion and a shared sustainable future.”

Other acts to take the stage includes Anderson East, Maggie Rogers, John Fogerty, Sensational Space Shifters, Robert Plant, The Raconteurs, The Lumineers, Santana, Miley Cyrus as well as The Killers.

Additionally, Dead and Company, with John Mayer on the lead guitar, Portugal The Man, Greta Van Fleet, Sturgill Simpson, The Black Keys, and Chance The Rapper will all headline on the 17th of August, Saturday.

Vince Staples, Janelle Monae, Brandi Carlile, Cage The Elephant, Halsey, Imagine Dragons, as well as Jay-Z, himself will perform as well.

The co-founder and producer of the original Woodstock Festival, Michael Lang, said the goal of the concert was to remind the world of the healing power of music.

Earlier, Miley was just one of a few who took to her Twitter account to announce her participation at the festival this year.

“I’m queer and ready to party!” the 26-year-old wrote. Miley said she’d be performing on Friday so she’d have the rest of the weekend to “rage.”

Woodstock marks the 50th anniversary of the festival, which spanned three days and included some of the most iconic names of all time, including Jimi Hendrix, Sha Na Na, Jefferson Airplane, The Who, Sly And The Family Stone, Janis Joplin, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Joan Baez.

Other cool aspects that the organizers have created are “highly curated neighborhoods,” workshops and even a “Kidstock” area for the parents who decide to bring their little ones.

Roze’s ‘Ileke’ beats Simi’s ‘Duduke’, tops Nigeria iTunes songs

Published

on

The latest single “Ileke” by the Nigerian US-based music duo, Roze has hit number one spot on the Nigeria iTunes top songs beating the likes of Simi’s “Duduke”, Adekunle Gold’s “Something Different” and even other international stars like Drake, Adele, Wiz Khalifa among others.

Roze, made up of two brothers, Row and Zuwa Agbonayinma dropped the single and video “Ileke” on all digital platforms on Tuesday, May 5, 2020 and it has since caught fire for its melodic rhythm, powerful vocals and enthralling beat. The title of the song “Ileke” simply means the African waist beads but beyond that, the duo explores the function of the ornament in relation to a woman’s bum and how it defines and accentuates it during dance.

After practically sending the social media into a meltdown with rendition of cover of Rema’s latest single “Beamer” in April, Row and Zuwa definitely are writing their own story of greatness with “Ileke,” shooting themselves to the top of the reef in less than 5 days of the release of the song.

The Top Ten songs on the Nigeria iTunes are Roze’s Ileke at number one, Simi’s Duduke at number two, followed by EESKAY’s Sanitize, Seun Moon’s Ileke, Ladipoe and Simi’s Know You, Natalie Taylor’s Surrender, Hanno’s No Doubt (Featuring Realzy), Sokid’s Away, Adekunle Gold’s Something Different and Mayorkun’ Of Lagos.

Ileke was produced by top producer, Mekoyo and the video was put together by Clarence Peters.

When the duo did a cover of Mavin’s Rema’s “Beamer” back in April the ovation for them was so loud even Don Jazzy himself had to commend them for the effort. Some people who saw the cover on Instablog9ja begged the Mavin’s boss to organise a remix of the song, collaborated between Rema and Roze.

The music duo, born Eghosa Rodney Agbonayinma (ROW) and Osazuwa Michael Agbonayinma (ZUWA) popularly known as Roze are children of politician and music lover, Hon Ehiozuwa Johnson Agbonayinma. They were born in Houston, Texas, January 11, 1998 and July 30, 1999 respectively.

Their other songs include like Too Much, All These Things, The Whole Night, Good things, Impressions, Stranded and Patience.

Roze is signed to U&I Music owned by their father
