Chris Brown sued for $50m over alleged backstage assault

American R&B star, Chris Brown, his confidante Sinko Ceej, rapper Yella Beezy and the corporation Live Nation have been named in a $50 million lawsuit in connection with a series of alleged attacks that occurred on Brown’s 11:11 tour in Fort Worth, Texas.

The new lawsuit accused the singer of orchestrating the assault of four men backstage at the Fort Worth stop of his tour on July 20, according to TMZ.

The plaintiffs, Larry Parker, Joseph Lewis, Charles Bush and Da Marcus Powell, claimed that they were invited backstage and escorted there, along with 40 women, for a post-concert hang, but ended up being assaulted.

According to the suit, Bush said he went to congratulate Brown for a successful show and he ordered his men to beat him up after one of them reminded him of their beef.

He claimed he was surrounded by 7-10 of Brown’s men who punched and kicked him. He also claims an entourage member known as Hood Boss threw a chair at his head.

The plaintiffs also alleged Brown sent Yella Beezy and some of his men to “f*** up” Parker, chasing him into a dead-end staircase with a locked door.

Parker said he was punched and kicked in the head for more than 10 minutes after Brown encouraged all of his companions to get a piece of the action.

The plaintiffs said they suffered severe injuries and had to undergo various medical treatments. Their attorney, Tony Buzbee, said at least one of them remains hospitalised and vowed to bring CB to justice.

In addition to the $50 million in damages, the plaintiffs have also filed for restraining orders against Chris, Beezy, and Sinko Ceej.

Chris Brown and his team are yet to react to the allegations.

Brown has faced legal issues in the past, most infamously in a criminal case, when he pleaded guilty to having assaulted his ex-girlfriend Rihanna

No kobo made from ‘Gwo Gwo Ngwo’ dance challenge — Brain Jotter

No profits made from viral ‘Gwo Gwo Ngwo’ dance challenge — Brain Jotter

Popular Nigerian comedian and skitmaker Chukwuebuka Amuzie, known as Brain Jotter, has addressed concerns about the potential exploitation of Mike Ejeagha’s 1983 hit “Onye Ori Utaba” having the chant “Gwo Gwo Gwo Ngwo,” which he sparked a viral dance challenge with.

The 41-year-old song by the 93-year-old folklore legend has taken social media by storm, leading to questions about revenue distribution and copyright. In response, Brain Jotter clarified that he is not profiting from the viral trend.

“For those who think we ripped him off or we’re making money from this whole thing, I understand your concerns and they are very valid. I appreciate the fact that you want him to get value for his hard work, which is very valid, and I want you to understand that you are doing something good,” Brain Jotter stated as he posted a video on Tuesday of his visit to the music legend.

He explained, saying, “At the end of the day, no dime was made from this song by me, nothing like that.”

Brain Jotter further explained the mechanics of content monetisation on various platforms.

“All those music where I did put out there – Instagram, Facebook, YouTube – everything, the whole revenue is going to Mike Ejeagha’s record label, his production company,” he said.

He detailed how copyright protection works on these platforms.

He said, “You cannot even monetise another person’s song because these platforms have copyright violation tools. If I post that video on YouTube, YouTube strikes it for copyright and they give the revenue to the actual owner, which is Mike Ejeagha.

“If you post it on Facebook, Facebook will tell you outright that this song does not belong to you, it belongs to this person. They take the revenue and give it to the actual owner.”

The comedian highlighted a positive outcome of the viral challenge, stating, “The song increased its streams on streaming platforms massively, and there’s no way I can put the song on streaming platforms. So everything, all revenues, are going straight to Mike Ejeagha.”

Brain Jotter also revealed that he gave Ejeagha two million naira, stating, “The two million I gave him was from my pocket. My hard-earned money is just for humanity and not for profit. This whole thing is not for profit.”

He further expressed gratitude for the joy the challenge has brought.

“We got the reward, which is the joy in his heart now. The joy in his heart now is my profit,” he said.

“We are here today to correct the mistakes of the past and rewrite history, to challenge lies and lay a formidable foundation for truth to strive. One of the purposes of meaningful existence is to correct the mistakes of the past. It may take time, truth has no duplicate. The glory of Yorubaland will shine again. We will clean the throne for the prosperity of our dear land.

We have commenced cultural revolt against adulterated monarchy. Kings worshipping idols are herbalists. They should quit the throne. We want to make the throne, which is the head clean. When the head is good, the body will be sound. Deity worshiping is a religion not culture.

Idol Worshipers should stop mixing the wrong with the right. Our culture is one of the best worldwide. Today, it has been infected and infracted by deitism. The coordinated step to right the wrong is now. We will pursue it to a logical conclusion.”

Famous Nigerian actress Dakore Egbuson-Akande has denied a report that she had an affair with the Senate president, Godswill Akpabio.

Nigerian actress Dakore Egbuson-Akande has denied a report that she had an affair with the Senate president, Godswill Akpabio.

ThePAPERS recalls that a viral report on Sunday named Dakore among other female celebrities that are allegedly Akpabio’s ‘side chicks.’

In a post on her official Instagram page on Monday, the actress denied the allegations, stating that she had never met Akpabio before.

“I saw text messages and calls this morning, alerting me to a very wicked lie from the pit of hell. I must say that I’m very disappointed, shocked and appalled. And I want to categorically state that I have never ever met the Senate president in my life.

“I have not had any cause to be in the same room with him, not to talk of being his side chick. I’m happily married with two beautiful children. So for a jobless, wicked blogger to decide to put my name amongst women who have been with this man is totally wicked and unfounded.

“It is a lie and I am ready for any legal action because, at this point, you have messed with the wrong person. I keep to myself, mind my business, I drink water and I do my work. So for someone to want to tarnish my hard-earned name and image for some clicks, no way.

“I’m not going to accept it or going to be quiet about it. I want to put it out there. Anyone who can provide video or audio evidence that I have been with this man, I would give you N5 million right now,” she wrote.
