Beat maker versus Producer

Not all beatmakers are producers, but all music producers are dope beat makers. Every product is first manufactured in the mind, before it is made tangible, ie something you can feel with your 5 senses. If God didn’t create the worlds and us first in His Mind it’ll have been chaos. Words are thoughts expressed so the next level was speaking it into existence. Let there be… In that case you can completely produce a beat or song without touching one equipment. Deciding to leave those tasks to engineers and others. Ideas rule the worlds and most hit tracks weren’t processed from scratch by the producer. He who has the ideas for the direction of the beat or track is the producer. A beat maker has little or no influence on how the song goes. Most times he’s at home or the studio creating the beats. It might be a very dope beat and someone jumps on it. The beat maker has no say or control in how the song goes. The producer influences not just the beat, but everything. The type of song or direction for the artist. The lyrics, the attitude and many more. Picture a football club. There are coaches and there’s the manager. A manager is a good coach but not all coaches are managers. The producer like the manager is responsible for the improvement of the artist. The producer takes responsibility for the outcome of the track. But just like you need a first degree before you can go do masters, before you can be a dope producer, you must first no how to make dope beats. Next post will teach you how to create dope beats

Why Buhari Took Off Face Mask In Daura

President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Assistant on Social Media, Mrs. Lauretta Onochie, has said that the president took off his face mask in his hometown Daura in Katsina State on Saturday, January 30 because he was addressing party faithful. WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that Buhari was criticised for removing his mask in public, days after signing an executive order which mandates the use of face mask in public places. Mrs Onochie tweeted on Monday, saying the president removed his face mask while addressing party members. “Mr. President in Daura. He wore a mask in Daura, except when he addressed Party faithful. Afterwards, he put it back on,” she said. She also querried a reporter who reportedly placed a microphone on the president’s chest in Daura. “Just wondering how a reporter placed his mic on the chest of Mr. President. Someone tell me. I too, need to know,” she said. “Or is it a photoshop gone wrong? Just asking.” Buhari began his four-day visit to Daura last Friday to participate in the revalidation of membership of the All Progressives Congress. He is expected back at Aso Villa on Tuesday.

Sheffield Shock Manchester United

Rock-bottom Sheffield United put a huge dent in Manchester United’s Premier League title hopes on Wednesday, beating Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s off-key side 2-1 at Old Trafford. United knew they had to respond after Manchester City leapfrogged them at the summit with a 5-0 hammering of West Brom on Tuesday but they were well short of their best on a frustrating night. Kean Bryan gave the visitors a shock first-half lead that former Blades defender Harry Maguire cancelled out, only for Oliver Burke’s heavily deflected strike to seal a first away win against Manchester United since 1973. The result leaves United on 40 points — one behind City — but Pep Guardiola’s side now have a game in hand and are looking increasingly likely to win a third title in four seasons. Solskjaer told BT Sport the “magic was missing” from his side, who slipped to their first league defeat since November 1, and said the referee had made two mistakes. “They defended well, fair play to them but we didn’t have the right ideas or solutions,” said the Norwegian. “The first goal is a foul, Billy Sharp runs into David de Gea. At the other end, no foul for the disallowed goal for us but it’s that kind of season. Two mistakes by the referee.” Even in such an unpredictable season, this result stood out as one of the biggest shocks of the campaign. Before the match Sheffield United had just five points to show from 19 games — the worst haul in Premier League history — and had not beaten the Red Devils since 1993. Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford flashed an early shot narrowly wide but they were short of ideas against the battling away team. The Blades broke the deadlock midway through the first half when Bryan rose to glance home John Fleck’s corner after De Gea failed to punch clear. Billy Sharp appeared to nudge the Spanish goalkeeper from behind but the goal was allowed to stand. Manchester United[…]

Liverpool’s Home Unbeaten Run Ended

Liverpool’s run of 68 Premier League games without defeat at Anfield came to an end following a shock 1-0 defeat to Burnley. Burnley become the first team to beat Liverpool in the Premier League at Anfield since Crystal Palace in April 2017 as a result. The reigning champions, so successful in recent years with their attacking prowess, have now gone four Premier League games in a row without scoring. They are now six points behind leaders Manchester United at the half-way stage and may even have to start looking over their shoulders in the race for the top four. Jurgen Klopp shuffled his options around, dropping Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino to the bench while Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri started alongside Sadio Mane in attack instead. Liverpool had a couple of chances via corners early on, but almost had a nervous moment when Alisson was caught off his line but he managed to save Ashley Barnes’ instinctive effort. There was a golden opportunity for Liverpool to end their long wait for a goal when Origi got in behind and ran through one-on-one with Pope. However, in a moment that summed up Liverpool’s plight at the moment, he struck the ball with too much power and it hit the bar. Klopp sent Firmino and Salah on in the 57th minute with Origi and Oxlade-Chamberlain going off as they looked to break the deadlock. The change almost had an immediate effect. Barely two minutes later, but Pope produced a strong hand to deny Salah from close range. With seven minute remaining in the game Burnley eventually broke the deadlock thanks to Barnes who converted from the penalty spot after he was fouled by Alisson in the box.

Akwa ibom Governor spent state funds on election – EFCC investigation reveals

A Federal High Court in Lagos Friday heard that Akwa Ibom State Governor, Emmanuel Udom, allegedly spent N1.4billion state funds to defend his 2015 election victory. An Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) investigating officer, Abdulraman Arabo, told the court that Udom hired Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SANs) to represent him at the tribunal where his victory was being challenged. Arabo told the court that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governor hired the immediate-past Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) President, Mr Paul Usoro (SAN), who invited other SANs to join his legal team. He said the N1.4bn legal fee paid to the SANs was drawn from the treasury of the Akwa Ibom State’s account. Usoro, he alleged, then gave back N55mllion out of the sum, to the state’s Attorney-General. Arabo testified at the resumed money laundering trial of Usoro before Justice Rilwan Aikawa. Usoro is facing amended six counts of money laundering. Also named as defendants in the case are the Akwa Ibom State Commissioner for Finance, Nsikan Nkan; the state’s Accountant-General, Mfon Udomah; the Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Uwemedimo Nwoko; and the cashier at the Akwa Ibom State Government House, Margaret Ukpe. At the commencement of Friday’s proceedings, the court admitted several exhibits, including statements made to the EFCC by the SANs and Usoro’s Access Bank account . They were tendered by EFCC counsel Usman Buhari, through Rabo. Fielding questions from the prosecutor, the investigator said after being paid legal fee from the Akwa Ibom State treasury, Usoro gave back N55m to the state’s Attorney-General. Under cross-examination, Usoro’s lawyer, Offiong Offiong (SAN), asked the investigator, “During your investigation, did you see that the money in issue was for legal fees of the service rendered to Governor Udom?” Rabo responded: “It is a payment made from government treasury for personal elections tribunal pursuit of the governor.” When Offiong pointed out to the investigator that his kick-back claim against Usoro was scandalous, the investigator said, “My Lord, what I said in[…]
