Whats wrong with this attention seeking female...?? And all that gist about her parents is really TMI...I mean if it came up in an interview of the woman then fine...But is it really necessary to include that her Dad was bla bla bla and Mum is bla bla bla in a press release about her single..SMH..

Nothing in the bio to hint at this lady's failed marriage to Soul E. Well people, this is the same lady that got controversially married the guy Soul E who was about 11 years younger than she was. Its now music, kwo?

Anonymous said...

I wish Ure luck. But, realistically speaking, I don't think she has much of a career waiting for her in music. She should try something that she's good at like banking.

Chi said...

LOL.....she has time !

Momen said...

Banker, Life Coach, Musician...then later, Actress and finally maybe Boxer. Wishing her the Best!!!

Bamidele said...

"...an R&B song laced with a fusion of African Rhythm," I've seen the "B" already (You know what I'm talking about?) and not the "R" in this picture. That African Rhythm ni koko. Expecting to see you in Gele in the Video. Kudos!

omg
I don't understand the purpose of this long statement... I gave up in the middle
she wants to sing fine na make she drop her single and let her talent speak why the need for a resume like she need introduction
any qualifications requested for singing besides a nice voice and the talent

This is a classic example of how not to send a press release. What is all this information doing in a press release announcing a new act? I regret to say that this poorly put together - riddled with typos - release is a sign of a failed career move. Dead on arrival.

I actually think Ure would do better in movies. See Nse Ikpe-Etim!

Kemi said...

Abeg, abeg, abeg, is this the making of a manifesto for a political post?! All this long story on top release of single? A 'nightingale'? Really? Let us be the judge of whether she's a nightingale or a rat caught in a trap. we await your lyrical attempt.

bluemagic said...

Instead of her to settle down for a husband,she has cme out to ridicule herslf for d 100th time..Ure get a life..mshewwww.

no definition of chRistainity in heR appeaRance

Wat if she writes it? Na ur papa ink she borrow abi y e dey chook u for body. U won't go and find somwhr to let off ur anger. Na she say make ur papa no get mouth for Naija.
And u Queen Ure, make dat song beta no suck, if not...

g said...

Yea! I bliv qualification is needed!!! As we all kw that Nigerians r biased. Was it not afta peeps heard DavidOs father is a billionaire that ppl started listening to his songs more?
Still on still, I love my country :)

Ras- Cally said...

Linda, I think its fair to explain why you have refused to post my comments. Am taking it personal because some of this people need to hear the truth sometimes. As for Ure and her song, lets hear it first then we know if music called her or she called music, nough said.

Anonymous said...

everyone just dey open mouth to sing nawa oooo

celebrity said...

yea right, she remembers her talent at what age? after testing other professions. and then when she's interviewed, we would get to hear responses like "i started singing right from childhood" please she shouldn't abuse we listeners that patronize good music. i hope she realizes on time that theres a difference btw signing in d bathroom,or while doing laundry and professional music.

mama somtee said...

aaaaabeg make unna free Queen Ure she has gone through a lot , i feel very sorry for her , i know she was very unlucky by marrying well below her , she must have thought the key to happiness and true love was marriage , not knowing that she only should make herself happy irrepective of what society says .

One Word "CONFUSED"!!!

blunt said...

this woman should lay low and stop making a ridicule of herself..she should leave all the scandals and attention-grabbing stunts for younger women in their 20's.
