Sold to the devil: Some record label contracts prevent artistes from saying Jesus, Kanye West reveals

Published

Born again American hip-pop artiste, Kanye West, has made yet another bold claim over the weekend – he says that some record label contracts actually prevent their artists from saying the name “Jesus.”

He made the claims during his Sunday Service performance at Bayfront Park in Miami.

“God using us to show off, to show God is better than the Devil. The Devil took all the producers, the musicians, the designers. He moved us all out to Hollywood, moved us all out to New York,” he said in a video clip obtained by XXL.

“Chasing gold statues. Literally signing a contract and selling our souls. They got contracts out there that say, ‘you can’t say, Jesus.’ When we were working on this album, people were coming to the studio just to say ‘Jesus’ as loud as they wanted to. You can say Jesus in ‘Ye studio.”

Gospel Kanye has been adamant about denouncing his old ways. Back in October, his pastor, Adam Tyson, revealed ‘Ye contemplated quitting rap altogether as he considered it the Devil’s music since becoming saved.

“One time, he told me that he wasn’t going to rap,” Tyson revealed during a podcast interview.

“I said, ‘Why not?’ He said, ‘That’s the devil’s music.’ I said, ‘Hey, man. Rap is a genre. You can rap for God.’ I think he was already thinking about it a little bit, but I definitely said, ‘Hey, bro. I think you need to use your talents that God’s given you and use that platform for God.’”

West took the advice. He is currently working on Jesus Is King 2, which will reportedly be mixed by Dr. Dre.

Alleged rape saga: Segalink releases final statement, says D’banj’s accuser, Seyitan is not interested in legal battle

Published

Nigeria rights activist, Segun Awosanya has released his final statement on the D’banj and Seyitan rape saga following corroborating with the police that Seyitan was never detained.

The legal luminary in a series of tweets noted that he received a call from Seyitan’s aunt with the alleged victim in the loop and it’s obvious that the agenda for a legal tussle was never Seyitan’s idea but other interested/vested parties.

Alleged rape: Segalink confirms that Dbanj rape accuser, Miss Seyitan was detained by police

Published

on

Human Rights Activist, Segun Awosanya aka SegaLink, has confirmed that Dbanj rape accuser, Miss Seyitan, was indeed arrested by the police.

Seyitan Babatayo, recently recounted her ordeal while in police custody for two days almost two weeks after going public with her story.

This information was contained in a statement issued by Stand To End Rape (STER) Initiative and signed by her.

Segalink yesterday stated that the police simply acted as an arbiter and the documents generated in that regard with the consent of Seyitan’s lawyer and parent proves this. He went on to narrate some incidents that occurred before the alleged rape incident ignited a controversy on social media. He has now given an update on the situation, confirming that Miss Seyitan was indeed arrested and detained by the police based on a petition which was eventually pulled out. See what he wrote below;

Releasing my final statement on this matter after receiving a conscionable courtesy call from @seyitannn_ ‘s mum, sister @tosinbunmi12 with @seyitannn_ in the loop. Please stay tuned.

I really want to appreciate Seyitan’s family at this difficult time. It is indeed a pleasure speaking with you this morning. I’m glad to be filled in on the missing links as well as elated to know we are on the same page as regards the fact that Seyitan’s interests is paramount.

As discussed, permit me to communicate seyitan’s family’s position on this matter, which consistently represents the prayers and wishes of Seyitan: She deserves her peace and a normal life.

Seyi is not a liar. She has been under untold strain which may have contributed to communication gaps and inconsistencies that have now being put into perspective. I would like to clarify that she was arrested and detained based on a petition which was eventually pulled out.

The family will take it from here and all warring parties are hereby advised to stand down and respect the wishes of the family.

Here is my position, which I cannot fail to stress, lest I fail generations and welcome a repeat of what played out here. The vicious & hateful approach of some interests (BMC & e-Feminist Coven) on this matter at the expense of Seyitan’s wellbeing must be condemned by All.

The malicious interest group erroneously believe that seyitan’s reluctance in taking their orders, was connected to me as proven by their numerous statements via Twitter trolls & ghouls under the pseudonym of e-Feminists (recently re-christened as Feminist Coven).

The family also reiterated and distanced themselves from the unfounded allegations pushed by those hoping to traffic their agenda through her situation. Seyi and her family are not interested in any CASE or legal battle as strictly communicated to @SIAF_NG (via @segalink)…

…even before the involvement of STER or police as well as the beleaguered feminist coven spinning tales and accusing every and anyone of coercion and control simply because their agenda got derailed.

I still want to believe measurably that STER meant well for Seyitan and couldn’t be directly held responsible for the actions of the malicious and unconscionable legion, pushing for an agenda, …

…even though a statement from @StandtoEndRape on the unfounded allegations could have been issued to distance their services from the drive of known gender trolls on Twitter. It is unfortunate they didn’t see this as critical.
We cannot be seen to discourage the activist wills of @kikimordi @ChiomaChuka and @AyodejiOsowobi (of STER) et al from helping people in need of urgent intervention – but observing what has occurred in this case – …

…and the omission of the engagement with NAPTIP – the strongest call for a total revamp of SARC processes In Nigeria is imminent. Public trial by media really shouldn’t be Nigeria’s ONLY pivot of investigation and relief.
…End of Celestial Clarification in the Know…
