Who Is The Fixer? – Don Crucifixto – Fix, Genius no longer a word when it comes to the music from the crew

A year ago Chief Executive Officer of Don Crucifixto, Tumininu Oluyole, better known as Tumi, announced that the label would be releasing music for the label anthem aptly Entitled ‘Don Crucifixto’ – the track features the Label boss himself, UK-based music star and hitmaker Sean Dampte, and ace producer and songwriter, Joey Benks.

Not only is the track a befitting label introduction into the mainstream Nigerian Afrobeat market but also a testament to how big it has grown.
Don Crucifixto enjoyed and enjoys massive support from Radio Stations, Clubs, fans and critics alike including online digital streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple and AudioMack.

365 days later, enter “Don Crucifixto Fix” – a remix to an already classic song that has been reviewed as a groovy song of class and levels.
The quality of the beat and melody as the voices ride on them creates a Psychedelic feeling that before now was only reserved for music gods but only points to the prowess of Savage Music in-house producer Joey Benks and then you notice the apt delivery of Sean Dampte himself – the recently crowned ‘Baba Won’ of the Nigerian Afrofusion music as he methodically brings moisture to places that can make use of them like the art of squeezing oranges but I know we get the drift.
Like if corkiness needed a new face, Sean DAMPTE baits his audience tantalizingly offering advice for them ‘Hide your Girls or na one chance’ proving again his non deniable appeal with the opposite sex.
Don Crucifixto is no longer just a name but a fixture in this part of the Afrobeat Evolution and with a fix! Can we rest assured a fixer is not yet around?
However, “Allow me” – in the eternal words of SEAN DAMPTE
Put this track on replay.
But I may need to save first!

N20bn bailout fund: EFCC’s desperate bid to cover incompetence laughable – Kogi

The Kogi State Government has described as laughable the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s attempt to desperately wriggle out of a bad case with another mischief aimed, again, at misleading Nigerians.
It said, quoting a letter signed by the Central Bank of Nigeria, which had not said anything different from what had been said so far on the controversial N20bn bail-out fund, the EFCC had finally exposed the fact that it had been pursuing a political agenda all along.
In a statement reacting to a press release by the EFCC on Friday, the Commissioner for Information and Communications in Kogi State, Kingsley Fanwo, said the Government would prepare a comprehensive response to the latest of the desperate moves by the Commission to save its face in view of its obvious goof and unethical conduct in the matter in dispute.
“The press statement by the Commission is a malicious attempt to rope the state into a matter that ordinarily has nothing to do with our dear state,” he said.
“We maintain the unassailable truth that the Kogi State Government did not operate such account with the bank as affirmed in a letter by the bank. We sympathize with the EFCC as it has been a herculean task to cover the initial misinformation and deliberate deceit by the Commission,” the statement added.
Fanwo stressed that the Kogi State Government would react to the latest EFCC statement comprehensively, noting that “every option that is legal will be considered to maintain the innocence and transparency of our Government.”
“Kogites and indeed, Nigerians should rest assured that we will get to the root of this matter,” he assured.
