Eazy (Mo Eazy) is mad and getting ready to leave Fire Records mansion after catching AKG (Kayswitch) in bed with his girl, Jane (Ruby Agwu). But of course, AKG’s manager, the ever-cunning Shina (Akah Nnani) and the boot-licker, Osas, playing both sides, manage to pacify and give him reasons to stay back. After considering the effects of his songwriter and producer – pretty much his talent – leaving the label on his career, AKG suddenly humbles himself and apologises to Eazy – even making big promises to sweeten the deal. With AKG’s selfish trend so far, will he keep his promises? We’ll see.
Just when Eazy is gearing up to perform with AKG, he breaks the bad news that the organisers insist only AKG’s solo single will be performed; Eazy is frustrated by this news only to see AKG performing their song alone on stage. He storms out of the award show while AKG and his hype man, Osas perform to the amazement of the crowd.
Tony (Leo Ugochukwu) and his PA, Diane (Linda Ejiofor) are at the office for a meeting where he’s getting his ass handed to him by the boss, Francesca (Funke Akindele-Bello) who insists he gets Wizkid and Tiwa savage on the roaster for her upcoming event. She gets a call where tony overhears her trying to get the rights to D Dream’s hit single, Controller. Tony, being the opportunist and never say never guy he is, tells her he can get the rights as D Dream was signed under his label. Diane is worried as she knows it’s false but Tony plays it off “You know there’s nothing like impossibility in my dictionary”.
A Helping Hand
After losing his eyes in the accident that claimed the life of his fast-rising best friend and benefactor, D Dream (Obadice), Sonorous (Olasunkanmi Omokanye) laments on the hospital bed about his predicament and the fact that he’s homeless – as going back to live with D Dream’s parents at this point is a no no. Ahmed (Nathan Bondo) offers to house him after paying his bills.
The Doctor informs Ahmed that Sonorous’ left eye has been destroyed and he won’t be able to see with that eye. Ahmed is down but his cousin Ada (Tomike Alayande) cheers him up, making him understand despite the tragedy, he needs to pick himself up and get sonorous back in the studio recording. Ada even pledges her support as she’s an event host & OAP for one of the leading radio stations. Who says family doesn’t come through in times of need?
E Go Better
Fever’s (Tobi Makinde) baby mama visits him in his one room apartment with their baby. She’s in a sour mood complaining about being broke and pressure from her mom talking about Tobi not taking charge. He tells her he used his life savings to purchase a laptop he uses for his production jobs and gives her the little he had on him.
And The Winner Is…
