Random Thoughts with Asat – Ayomaid and BonnyMaid. Engagemaid.

Childhood Dream

Childhood Dream

Fresh and Briskly I woke up on Monday. The first day of the week. The day most of us dread. The day that reminds us of the capitalism that has override humanity. The day that takes the fun of the weekend away. Monday is always grumpy. Truth be told, we all almost hate Mondays.

July 27, 2015. The last Monday of the month of July. A Monday I was happy to wake up to. A Monday that had been set up years back.

The journey had started at Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko. Like all university romance, it “blowed” and looked solid. But many expected it to end right at the university gate, as that’s the culture of our generation. But this guy is not from this clime. When it comes to the ways of this world, he’s from Mars. An Alien. Fela Anikulapo Kuti referred to himself as “Abami Eda”. He wouldn’t have if he had been privileged to meet this noble man.

Muyiwa Ayomide Ogundare. A special clone who is planning to leave us behind. Leaving the bachelor life behind. Migrating to a glorious state. A clone who’s planning on wearing a ring soon. Well, he’s still a clone to me till he starts using the ring.

I Digress.

Ayomaid. A special name sweetened when heard from the honey lips of Bonnymaid. Never been close to Bola. Don’t know if that would change soon but I know her from afar. A gentle heart and a lovingness that radiates. You don’t need to be a buddy to feel that. A special soul.

Lakeside. Azure Sky. 22 degress. Federal Capital Territory. My special clone asked the four words. For reasons best known to him he had to ask three times (wait, didn’t I tell you he’s a clone?).

“Will You Marry Me?”

It took about four minutes. She’s staring. Lost. Happy. Speechless. She’s overwhelmed with joy. It’s been her dream. It’s been his too. He pulled the ring and fixed it. Don’t ask me what happened immediately after. Minutes later, they drove into the moon.

Was it a fairy tale? He’s saying No. Insisting fairy tales don’t last. But who cares. Bonnymaid is happy. The whole fraternity is happy.

Love can be brutal. Several love stories are epic nollywood scripts with a whole lot of you guys playing Jim Iyke. But my clone has been the Ramson Noah of this movie shoot. He’s just delivered a Hollywood Boxoffice.

Congratulations Muyiwa Ayomide Ogundare and Bola Oguntuberu. I’ve placed order for my ten yard Guinea brocade. White Agbada for “Idobale” that day we meet your parents Bola.

My White Agbada on "Idobale" day will be better than this Tola's own.

My White Agbada on “Idobale” day will be better than this Tola’s own.

As for my special clone, who I’ll repeatedly be calling so because I know he’ll still knock me whenever we see for calling him a clone, you’re probably the smartest individual I’ve come across my whole life. That’s what makes you a clone.

Random Thoughts With Asat – Drake Beef or Meek Mill Ponmo?

Let's Pray - Meeky Drake

Let’s Pray – Meeky Drake

Last night while most people were sleeping, a number of hip-hop artists started voicing their opinions on ghostwriters after Meek Mill targeted Drake for not writing his own verse on “R.I.C.O.,” and for not promoting his album, Dreams Worth More Than Money. Allegedly, after Drake found out that Meek Mill knew he didn’t write his own verse, Drake refused to promote the album to his 24 million followers.

If this flurry of tweets is to be believed at face value, it would appear that Meek Mill is over-reacting to a practice that happens often in hip-hop. The name Meek mentioned, Quentin Miller, is actually credited on “R.I.C.O.”, which means that it’s common knowledge that someone other than Drake wrote it. But maybe there’s more to this story than meets the eye. Maybe this could be a classic case of a love triangle gone wrong, with Drake feeling false ownership over Minaj after her relationship with Safaree Samuels. Or maybe it can be deeper than love or money, and be an issue of respect tied to each artist’s use of album art. We dug up the thoughts of the designer of Meek Mill’s album cover to find out every angle to these theories in an attempt to get to the bottom of this.

Theory #1: He Wanted the Drake Stimulus Package

Meek Mill is genuinely upset that Drake, currently the biggest rapper in the game, may have a secret crutch with the army of songwriters under his wing. While this practice isn’t anything new in the music industry—Kanye has been more than open about the army of writers he enlists for a new song—it’s still a touchy subject in hip-hop which still holds the outdated ideal that every lyric is entirely written pen to paper by one artist.

Meek has always been very vocal about social support from his rap peers, which caused Wale to catch flack when the D.C. rapper didn’t tweet about Meek’s debut. This time around, according to Meek, once The Boy found out that Meek knew he didn’t write his own lyrics, he pulled away from sharing the social media love.

While it would be easy to call Meek Mill petty, it’s hard to ignore the influence of the OVO rapper. With over 24 million followers on Twitter, his support could have given Meek’s already large sophomore sales an even bigger debut. Perhaps adding fuel to Meek’s claims is the fact that for no rhyme or reason and a week in advance of Future’s Dirty Sprite 2, Drake announced that he would be the sole feature on the album. And while many would argue the strong arm of #FutureHive for the impressive 125,000 – 135,000 opening sales of DS2, the “Drake Stimulus Package” is a real thing.

Theory #2: The Lover’s Triangle

The Love Triangle

The Love Triangle

Before Meek and Nicki started officially dating this spring, there was always some romance brewing between Nicki and Drake. This has a long history, dating back to Nicki’s “Moment For Life” video where the two are seen getting married and as recently as the infamous lap dance in her “Anaconda” video. Now there is reason to believe Meek and Nicki’s relations is on the rocks, as video footage from Nicki and Meek’s Miami performance from July 20th displays them interacting awkwardly on stage and barely looking at each other. In his storm of tweets last night, Meek put it on display that he’s sensitive towards Drake and Nicki’s ambiguous relationship, saying: “When he said the dream girl shit on Rico I thought he was coming at me lol.”

Theory #3: Art Attack

Asat Media

Meek Mill Album Art

Meek Mill’s album art features a stack of money unfolding to expose what appears to be a page from the bible with the same prayer hands that are on Drake’s If You’re Reading This Its Too Late. However, if you look closely, you can see it’s a page from a service for Robert Parker, Meek Mill’s father. The date of August 19, 1992 on the page matches up to the date of the news report announcing Parker’s death, and the prayer hands seem to be lifted straight from the funeral program. Meek Mill’s album was pushed back from September of 2014, a full 4 months before Drake dropped his mixtape. In a phone call with Noisey, Chaz L. Morgan—the designer who created Meek Mill’s album art—stated that Meek had approved all of the promotional artwork leading up to the original September 2014 release, and approved the image of the prayer hands for the release. “I drafted up the funeral service page. But the hands, I was able to get the original copy because Meek put it on Instagram like two or three years ago. I wanted to put a picture of him on the cover, so I was researching and I was able to find a picture of them cropped out. I was just reinterpreted the rest of it with based on dates.” When I follow up and ask how he feels about Drake using the same image for his mixtape, or if Drake may have seen the image ahead of time, he replies with the silent treatment. Like most superstars, Drake has a history of being influenced by outside forces. Was Meek Mill’s use of prayer hands so impactful that Drake felt he needed to claim it as his own? Although Meek didn’t allude to it in the tweets, the fact that a peer used an image that holds such gravity to your personal history and, in a way, represents the love you feel for your late father, might have been one of the many straws on this camel’s back.

Final Thoughts

The truth may lay outside of those three theories or be some weird combination of them, but the fact remains that this rap beef is in full swing. Drake has historically not been one to engage in rap feuds, but with one of his former allies taking such a hard stance against him, it would appear that this beef holds more substance than one with, say, Tyga. We will continue to follow this story and provide updates as they happen.

Flash or Back?

Tonight, I draw inspiration from Wizkalifa. Do I see him as a role model? No! Do I give a hoot about his music? Not really! Do I envy his Tattoos? Never! Wiz duet with Charlie Puth on “See You Again” is my stimulus.

I’ve been Awol from here. Totally MIA. It’s been absolutely eccentric but I guess I have no excuse whatsoever. I want to be back. I want to be close to you all again. I want you all to read my thoughts again. I want us to have a connection again. Inside me, the “Little boy in me” is giving me a guilty apparel of Love Break-up. I hope you all will take me back.

I promise to be a here at least once in a week, for the time being and we see where we take this to. This time around, consistency is what I’ll seek.

This will be Fun again. My hands on my Chest. Tell your neighbors, tell your boss. Asat is Back.

“Random Thoughts with Asat” is rebirthed!

It’s been a long day without you, my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
We’ve come a long way from where we began
Oh, I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again……….
