The Bryan White Foundation led by Bryan White has really tried a lot to discipline several artistes.
Artistes like Pallaso, DJ Michael, comedian Madrat and Chiko to mention but a few have changed from the usual arrogant artiste behavior to organised and respectful individuals.

Selena Gomez had to walk away from Justin Bieber when he couldn’t promise her a serious future that included marriage. We’ve got the EXCLUSIVE details.
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber‘s latest go at love seemed so promising. They’re both much more mature and have come so far since their days of teenage love in the past. At 25, Selena was hoping that Justin could start thinking about a serious commitment in their future — marriage — but the Biebs, 24, wasn’t willing to go there yet. “He loved her very much and still does and she still has strong feelings for him. But he wasn’t ready to settle down with her as soon as she wanted to and she couldn’t get him to actually think about marriage in a serious nature,” a source close to Justin tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Justin Bieber and girlfriend Selena Gomez enjoy a kiss while sitting courtside at the Los Angeles Lakers vs. San Antonio Spurs game in Los Angeles, CA.
Selena underwent a life saving kidney transplant in the summer of 2017. That seemed to make her realize that Justin was worth giving another chance as by late October, she broke up with boyfriend of 10 months The Weeknd, 28, and was back in the “Sorry” singer’s arms. “Selena’s priorities drastically changed after her surgery and her perspective on life has shifted. She was looking to settle down sooner than Justin wanted to and she took his reluctance as the last straw to finally move on from him,” our insider adds.
Sel has fans thinking that she still has Bieber on the brain with the release of her new song “Back To You” on May 10. Its her first single in 2018 and her first new music since her make up and break up with Justin. It included lyrics such as “Let a couple years water down how I’m feeling about you” and “Everybody knows we got unfinished business,” which Selenators immediately assumed was about Justin. The chorus went “What was there wasn’t sure. But I’d go back to you. I know I’d go back to you.” Well, she won’t go back Justin unless he’s ready to think about putting a ring on it!

‘I can perform for even 5 people if they pay me. I think Abdul Mulasi came to my life to spoil my name. I was arrested because of him. I worked for the money and I was arrested for it. My lawyers are going to deal with him. We did 6 shows out of 13 and there was no money. Of course we are business people, we need to be paid and respected for what we do,’ an angry Taata Sam said.

For sometime now, fading musician Khalifah Aganaga real names Sadat Mukiibi has been making noise for whoever cares to listen that APass is a proud artiste who refused to do a collabo with him.
According to the singer, APass real names Alex Bagonza turned out an opportunity that he gave him to reach a new audience, the ghetto audience since his music is so high class.

Speaking about the accusations; APass started by saying that he has heard about Khalifah Aganaga but he is not familir with him and that he is not his friend. APass went on to say that he does music with people he is friends with and that is why his music hits because there is a connection. He mentioned Juliana, Iryn, Bebe Cool among others. This before he told off Khalifah to keep his audience because he has other ways of reaching it.
‘I have heard of that name of Khalifah Aganaga, I am glad that he wants to introduce me to the ghetto he seems good but he needs to go for himself and make things happen and stop ridding off the backs of others. I am at the level where I don’t need some artistes,’ APass said.
The Didadada singer went on to say;
‘If you want to do a project with me, I refuse and you go to the media I dont think you are the kind of person to assocate with. I don’t work with people who are not my friends. I have worked with Juliana, Iryn and they have come through my management. I have a relationship with most of the people I have worked with.’
There you have it. Khalifah will have to cut it and get do some music maybe APass’ management can pay attention to him.
