Nigeria Entertainment Roundup: Brymo releases new album

Late Paul Walker to appear in Fast and Furious 7

Popular singer, Brymo, has finally released the hard copy of his third studio album, “Merchant, dealers and slaves”.

The album release was reportedly based on a March 3 ruling of a Federal High Court in Lagos lifting the injunction gotten by his erstwhile record label, Chocolate City, restraining him from recording, releasing or distributing any musical works pending the determination of the suit against him.

The album, which was produced by Mikky Me, was earlier released on online platforms- Spinlet and Itunes. It hit the market on Wednesday, March 26, 2014, with Guest Appearances from David O.

Brymo, whose first album, Brymstone, was released in 2007 and the second, TheSonOfaKapenta, in 2012, is currently being sued by Chocolate City for breach of contract.

He will return to court on Tuesday, April 8 as Presiding Justice Ibrahim Bubba of the Ikoyi High Court adjourned the case for further hearing.

Late Paul Walker to appear in Fast and Furious 7

The lead character in the popular Fast and Furious movie series, late Paul Walker, will appear in the part seven of the movie due for release later in the year, America’s New York Daily News has reported.

Walker, who died in a tragic car crash last November halfway through the filming of Fast and Furious 7, will be ‘appearing in the movie’ through the digital wizardry innovation of using voice effects over improvised computer generated images CGI.

The New York Daily News newspaper quotes a source as saying, “They have hired four actors with bodies very similar to Paul’s physique and they will be used for movement and as a base…Paul’s face and voice will be used on top using CGI.”

It is also rumoured that Walker’s brother, Cody, who is a stunt man, would be hired to stand in for him, but no official word has been released.
