“We No Be Mates”: Goldie’s Dubai Born Millionaire Boyfriend to Invest $200,000 in her Music, Why Do I Care?

Why is this newsworthy? Is this just bad PR writing? So an artist meets her “new found love” and he seemingly and impulsively as reported in the news below, decides to invest in her music career, why is this so news worthy so that it is found in my media inbox?

Goldie is talented and probably one of the more interesting artists (male and female combined) that I have seen out of Nigeria. Her videos are great fashion eye candy, love them. But, really, Industry, do we really need to know some rich  guy she met, born in Dubai aka  her new found love, wants to “dash” her 200,000? I vex, really.

Kenny and Goldie, please fire your PR person. Also, can Kennis music beef up on the image branding? If it is not Eedris AbdulKareem allegedly beating up on Jaywon, it is Goldie not showing up to an event to support her label mate, an alleged breakup with Kennis partners and now this? Clean it up and get competent PR to communicate more effectively with the public and press.
