Moses Oghenare Iribevbe, is a full fledged Deltan who spent his formative years in South-Western Nigeria, but happens to straddle in his daily grind, the reality of being a Niger-Deltan bred on Yoruba soil, with the many merits that his multicultural socialization affords the evolution of his personality.

His stage name, ARREL is a derivation from his middle name, Ogheneare, and echoes its shortened form (Are), as his folks at home, school, the streets, and his spots of hustle, call him. Along with the pseudonym ARREL, there is an attaché appellation that floats with his vibe and brand – ‘Wonder Boy’.

Cool-as-ice and down-to-earth ARREL the Wonder Boy, is a graduate of Ladoke Akintola University. He is in his mid-20s, and has been building a momentum behind the scenes to introduce his craft to the Nigerian music industry. Riding on the crest of a new sound and style, and a very energetic crew at his disposal, ARREL just dropped a sizzling hot single titled ‘GIRLS THEM’, produced by the effervescent SPOTLESS, and modeled to the generic style ARREL wants to tow – Afro dancehall.

As the only son amongst a sound number of siblings, soft-spoken ARREL knows no hobby more than hardwork, and looks to the heavens for his daily grind to yield bread and good liquid to wine it. If you’ve not listened to this new wonder hook beautiful people of the world, it’s as if una never hear say na Donald Trump win that election! ‘GIRLS THEM’ falls in the realm of a song and sound that is refreshingly different from the norm we are used to, and rolls in the ears on very mature beats and calm lyrics.

ARREL’s ‘GIRLS THEM’ is as crisp and smooth as aso-ebi wey dem never wear before. Be the first to have a go at it. You’ll be so nodding your head, we bet you’ll be echoing ARREL’s signature statement – “Oluwa lo ni Wonder!”.

       A BRIEF ARTICLE ABOUT HER.
Diane Ernestine Earle Ross (born March 26, 1944), known professionally as Diana Ross, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and record producer. Born and raised in Bessemer, Al, she rose to fame as the lead singer of the vocal group The Supremes, which, during the 1960s, became Motown’s most successful act, and is to this day the United States’ most successful vocal group, as well as one of the world’s best-selling girl groups of all time. As part of the Supremes, her success made it possible for future African-American R&B and soul acts to find mainstream success. Diana’s high-pitched and bright lyric-soprano voice has been enjoyed and still is by fans around the world. The group released a record-setting twelve number-one hit singles on the US Billboard Hot 100, including the hits “Where Did Our Love Go”, “Baby Love”, “Come See About Me”, “Stop! In the Name of Love”, “You Can’t Hurry Love”, “You Keep Me Hangin’ On”, “Love Child”, and “Someday We’ll Be Together”.

Following her departure from the Supremes in 1970, Ross released her eponymous debut solo album that same year, which contained the hits “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand)” and the number-one hit “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”. She later released the album Touch Me in the Morning in 1973; its title track reached number 1, as her second solo hit. That same year, her album “Lady Sings The Blues”, which was the original soundtrack of her film based on the life of jazz singer Billie Holiday, went to no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 200 Albums Chart. By 1975, the Mahogany soundtrack included her third number-one hit, “Theme from Mahogany (Do You Know Where You’re Going To)”. Her eponymous 1976 album included her fourth number-one hit, “Love Hangover”. In 1979, Ross released the album The Boss. Her 1980 semi-eponymous album Diana reached number 2 on the US Billboard albums chart, and spawned the number-one hit “Upside Down”, and the international hit “I’m Coming Out”. After leaving Motown, Ross achieved her sixth and final US number-one hit, with the duet “Endless Love”.

Ross has also ventured into acting, with a Golden Globe Award and Academy Award-nominated performance for her performance in the film Lady Sings the Blues (1972). She also starred in two other films, Mahogany (1975) and The Wiz (1978), later acting in the television films Out of Darkness (1994), for which she also was nominated for a Golden Globe Award, and Double Platinum (1999). Ross was named the “Female Entertainer of the Century” by Billboard magazine. In 1993, the Guinness Book of World Records declared Ross the most successful female music artist in history, due to her success in the United States and United Kingdom for having more hits than any female artist in the charts, with a career total of 70 hit singles with her work with the Supremes and as a solo artist. Ross has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, when her releases with the Supremes and as a solo artist are tallied. In 1988, Ross was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as member of the Supremes, alongside Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard. She was the recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors in 2007, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2016. She is a 12-time Grammy nominee, never earning a competitive honor, but later became the recipient of the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012. In December 2016, Billboard magazine named her the 50th most successful dance artist of all time.[1]

Westlife, Flying without wings lyrics.

Lyrics of Westlife — Flying Without Wings

Verse 1:

Everybody’s looking for that something
One thing that makes it all complete
You find it in the strangest places
Places you never knew it could be

Verse 2:

Some find it in the face of their children
Some find it in their lover’s eyes
Who can deny the joy it brings
When you’ve found that special thing
You’re flying without wings

Verse 3:

Some find it sharing every morning
Some in their solitary lives
You’ll find it in the works of others
A simple line can make you laugh or cry

Verse 4:

You’ll find it in the deepest friendship
The kind you cherish all your life
And when you know how much that means
You’ve found that special thing
You’re flying without wings

Verse 5:

So, impossible as they may seem
You’ve got to fight for every dream
Cause who’s to know which one you let go
Would have made you complete

Verse 6:

Well for Me, It’s waking up beside you
To watch the sunrise on your face
To know that I can say I love you
In any given time or place

Verse 7:

It’s little things that only I know
Those are the things that make you mine
And it’s like flying without wings
Cause you’re my special thing
I’m flying without wings

Verse 8:

And you’re the place my life begins
and you’ll be where it ends
I’m flying without wings
And that’s the joy you bring
I’m flying without wings

He told Factory 78 TV that he and Banky W became friends prior to starting a professional relationship. He co-wrote Banky W’s “Omoge You Too Much”, a song off the The W Experience album.[13] In 2006, he collaborated with Naeto C and Ikechukwu.

He made the announcement shortly after his performance at the 17th edition of the Ghana Music Awards.[73]
EME’s breakup, reunion and departure
After Wizkid tweeted a subliminal message and tweaked his Twitter account, reports about his departure from E.M.E went viral.[74][75] Wizkid moved out of the E.M.E mansion in Lagos and acquired his own home in the Lekki Phase 1 area.[75] Prior to Wizkid’s subliminal tweets, Banky W pacified fans by assuring them that nothing was amiss. Furthermore, it was reported that troubles within E.M.E started as early as the 2012 E.M.E all stars concert.[75] It was also reported that money was at the centre of the controversy.[75] On 20 February 2013, Information Nigeria reported that Wizkid was getting 25 percent from every performance, while Banky W and Segun Demuren were getting 50 percent. Osagie, Wizkid’s former manager, was getting the remaining 25 percent. After firing Osagie and hiring Godwin Tom (whom he parted ways with in April 2014),[76] Wizkid wanted a 50–50 share with Banky W. The source revealed that Banky W refused to accept Wizkid’s proposal. Moreover, it was reported that Banky W wanted to find a manager for Wizkid who would accept 25 percent. It was also reported that things started getting sour as a result of both parties disagreement. Information Nigeria went on to report that Wizkid was doing three shows weekly and bringing in close to N24 million monthly.[77][78][79][80] On 30 April 2013, Nigerian Entertainment Today reported that Wizkid and E.M.E reunited after contract negotiations. The news source also reported that Wizkid performed alongside label mates Shaydee and DJ Xclusive in The Republic of Benin.[81] In August 2014, Wizkid told Olisa Adibua that he will depart the label following the release of his second studio album, Ayo.[82]
A victim of impersonation
On 19 June 2013, Wizkid and his management were invited by men from the Nigerian Police Force for questioning. Duping charges were leveled against them by a group of UNILAG students. The students claimed that Wizkid agreed to perform at the UNILAG Sports Centre on 21 May 2013 for a total sum of N500,000.[83] They also claimed that he didn’t show up for the show and didn’t return their money.[83] After conducting a thorough investigation, Police determined that Unilag students were bamboozled by con artists pretending to be affiliates of E.M.E. In the aforementioned interview with Showtime Celebrity, Wizkid commented on the events that transpired after the accusations. He told the media that the police were investigating the case. The masterminds behind the impersonation were later detained by law enforcement agents in Lagos. In addition to duping Unilag students, the culprits set up fake email and social media accounts.[84][85] Wizkid also elaborated on how one can go about booking him.[22]
Personal life
Car accident and Porsche acquisition

On 15 June 2013, Wizkid was involved in a non-life-threatening car accident along the Lekki-Epe Expressway in Lekki, Lagos. According to an article posted on Silverbird Television, Wizkid was hospitalised for a minor concussion resulting from the wreck.[86] According to eyewitness reports compiled by MTV Base, Wizkid’s Porsche Panamera was spotted speeding down the road; the car’s front tires blew out and resulted in the driver of the vehicle losing control and crashing into a road barrier.[87] Eyewitness reports also added that the car’s airbag suspension system deployed on impact, shielding Wizkid and the driver instantaneously.[88] At the time of the incident, Wizkid and other passengers in the car were returning from the Soundcity Nokia LumiaBeat Party. The accident allegedly occurred around 3:30am in front of the GET Arena.[89] As a result of the wreck, the car was badly damaged. Pictures of the damaged vehicle surfaced on Instagram and Facebook. Vanguard reported that Wizkid acquired a Porsche Cayenne two weeks after the accident. He posted pictures of his new acquisition onto his Instagram page and tagged the pictures with the caption “#Blessed”.[90][91][92]
Fatherhood controversy

On 22 August 2011, Nigerian Entertainment Today reported that Wizkid fathered his first child at age 21. After a thorough investigation, the news source concluded that Wizkid impregnated an undergraduate student named Oluwanishola Ogudugu.[93] Moreover, the news source added that multiple sources familiar with the “baby mama” and her family told them that they knew about the relationship between both parties. When the story broke out, close friends and associates of Wizkid didn’t confirm the story due to DNA results that were pending at the time.[93] Wizkid broke his silence on the story in several interviews. In an interview with a Nigerian Entertainment Today editor, Wizkid denied having a child.[93] In another interview held at Ogudu-GRA in Lagos, Wizkid said he really doesn’t want to find himself in that peculiar situation. A week before denying the aforementioned allegations, Wizkid tweeted from his official Twitter handle.[93] In December 2012, he denied the baby scandal during an interview with Nonye Ben-Nwankwo of The Punch. In October 2013, Wizkid uploaded a picture of he and his 2-year-old son, Boluwatife Balogun, onto his Instagram account. The photo confirmed the alleged rumours and allegations that were harboured for 2 years. The photo also vindicated Nigerian Entertainment Today, the news source that first covered the story.[94]
Feuds

Wizkid became engulfed in rifts with several artists including his erstwhile boss Banky W[95] and former label mate Skales.[96] Other artists include Davido,[96] Dammy Krane,[97] Saeon,[96] Tonto Dikeh,[96] Samklef[96] and blogger Linda Ikeji.[98]
