Dreadlocks, good looks and smooth talking is all that is best suited to describe the contemporary dancehall/reggae artiste that goes by the name TRIGGAR MAN.
Born Bob-Dave Omoaghe to a family of ten children, Triggar Man needed no extra-curricular guidance to nudge him ahead in his musical career than the one provided by his family. With every single member of his family blessed with the talent of music, Triggar Man found his footing firm in the musical world upon deciding to go professional in 2001 after his secondary education.
With a work-in-progress debut album, he has such sensational dancehall/raggae singles like "Rock Fi LIfe", "Follow Me" and "System" which though yet to hit the airwaves are sure reggae-ton flavours that would make all reggae pundits marvel with the smoothness of his patua lingo.
The Edo State raggae star has had the privileged of working with A-List producers in the industry (I.D Cabasa, J Sleek, UC Prof, Kris a.k.a Daddy X, Mo-Kris and Joe-Pee) and also done features with artistes that even if they are not hot now, they likely would be afterward (Oge, I'll Gynx and Guru). He hopes to spar withh such big names like 2face, M.I and Terry G in his forthcoming ten tracker album titled "Real Bad Man".
His smooth flowing dancehall/reggae single Rock Fi Life has a sparkling shot cameo/vidoe expression which was directed by none other than Mannequin Productions in South Africa. Inspired by such reggae icons llike Beenie Man, Movado, Sizzla, 2face Idibia and Rhymzo, this dancehall/reggae wonder has had the honour of thrilling such mighty audiences as the ones present at MTN 2face & Friends Concert at the Millennium Park in Abuja and the 1 year in office anniversary of his state governor Adams Oshiomhole.
In the years to come he aspires to be among the great dancehall/reggae legends like Bob Marley, Lucky Dube, Bennie Man, Movado, Sizzla, 2face Idibia to mention a few. And hope to be in the front line of bringing a change in the Nigerian Music Industry in areas such as credible and worthy record deals/labels for artistes and the stiff fight against piracy. Triggar Man likes to hang out with friends, clubbing and also unwinds playing lawn tennis and swimming. His driving force/philosophy in life is "Do your Best and have patience as a virtue".

DBANJ & Davido To Perform LIVE On Monday 27th Of August 2012, At HMV Apollo London: See Ticket Purchase Details, Press Release & Confirmation Video.
Press Release 2012
DBANJ on The Rise – Still The Kokomaster – G.O.O.D Music
Man Entertainment is very pleased to announce DBANJ LIVE on Monday 27th of August 2012 – HMV Apollo London. Dbanj will be joined by Davido and the HKN gang.
Davido, the self confessed Omo Baba Olowo, can no longer be referred to as up and coming. He has fully blown even without having dropped an album yet. With hits such as Back When (featuring Naeto C), Dami Duro and the latest video drop – Ekuro, Davido is proving that 2012 is a fantastic year. The young MTN ambassador is due to drop his first album in July 2012.
I can just imagine how much fun this will be. Mike Larry, who organised this, did a similar show last year with the MOHITS crew and I supported it because of Mike. The show was very entertaining and I recall planning to scratch Mike's dark glasses :D for not breathing a word about Kanye stopping by! Grrrrrrr! Hehehe! It was a pleasant surprise. The screams were deafening, as the crowd almost went MENTAL!
Unfortunately, I won't be around for this year's show :( and I'm wondering what surprises Mike has up his sleeves this time. Shhh...but if I manage to squeeze it out of him, I may tell, so stay tuned! *joke*
Please purchase your tickets and make it a date. From my personal experience, you wouldn't want to miss this.
Watch Dbanj, Davido, Sina Rambo and B-Red, below, confirm the date of the show - Bank Holiday Monday 27th August, 2012.

FAB Magazine's Editor & Ace Photographer, Sinem Bilen-Onabanjo, Covers Ladybrille Magazine - July 2012 Issue.
The Ladybrille ‘Woman of the Month’ is a monthly feature on Ladybrille magazine which celebrates women, locally and internationally, for their brilliant contributions to their communities and society at large.
“A celebration of Sinem Onabanjo and her contributions to Africa, particularly Nigeria’s fashion industry, is long overdue,” said Uduak Oduok, Editor-in-Chief for Ladybrille Magazine. “Everything she does relating to Africa is passionate, inspiring, refreshing and positive. She has a profound respect for how she approaches the African narrative and it is highly commendable especially given that she is a non-African (from Turkey) telling Africa’s stories.”

She is also the current Editor-in-Chief of Nigerian owned and Lagos based international magazine, FAB. A seasoned photographer and co-owner of a photography business with Suby Onabanjo, her husband, she also recently co-launched her Public Relations firm, STWOPR , with Suby which caters to Africa’s fashion and entertainment industries.
“As a long-time reader of Ladybrille, I am delighted and honored to be recognized as a Ladybrille Woman amongst so many inspirational others who have preceded me and many more likely to follow after,” said Onabanjo in describing what it feels like to be Ladybrille Woman of the Month for July 2012. “I’d like to thank Uduak Oduok and her team not only for an amazing interview but also for continuing to bring us a fab quality online publication with the latest news covered with highest standards.”
Onabanjo joins the Ladybrille Alumni list of brilliant Women of the Month(s) including Supermodels Iman and Nana Keita, Top Fashion Model & Humanitarian- Gelila Bekele and Project Runway Season 5 Finalist & Fashion Designer Korto Momolu.
Onabanjo’s interview will be published on Friday July 13th, 2012 on the magazine’s website www.ladybrillemag.com.
