French filmmaker Casper Noe has lashed out in a recent interview about Kanye West and hype Williams of ripping off his 2009 film ‘Enter the Void’ in the “All of the Lights” video

The director told Rolling stones “I was more shocked by the fact that that guy who copied all the typography of my titles put his name in it — Hype Williams — when you never usually see a director’s name in a music video,” Noé said. “He was putting his name on it over and over! It was so weird that he was not only copying it, but adding his name into the credits over and over again.”

DLA News thought we would investigate and check out what all the fuss is about (if any)

David O & Wizkid No Show at Mobo’s.

Posted on November 4, 2015 with 0 Comments


As the eyes of the world turn to Leeds for the MOBO Awards, less than 24hours ahead of the prestigious Mobo Award Ceremony taking place tonight (Wed 4th Nov) at the First Direct Arena in Leeds, it turns out that two of Africa’s biggest stars Wizkid and Davido have pulled out from performing alongside Fuse ODG at the awards tonight.

Management from both camps have provided different reasons for the cancellations but the dancers billed to support the performances were at the First Direct Arena venue to rehearse. What would have been a ground breaking, epic and certainly a first for the Nigerian based artists was aborted before any announcements were made to the public fortunately. However, DLA News could not withhold juicy information like this and had to let our loyal readers know that once again, that Afrobeats have missed another sailing boat and an opportunity to showcase on one of the biggest awards show and music platforms in Europe as more than 10,000 people descend to Leeds city tonight.


The MOBO Awards will be live on ITV2 at 8pm this evening.

Elephant & Castles Iconic Coronet to close after 138 years

Posted on November 4, 2015 with 0 Comments

South London entertainment venue Coronet will be closing its doors following an unsuccessful campaign to protect its future

In July 2014, a campaign was launched to protect the venue’s future as a result of rising rents, licensing restrictions, noise complaints, housing development and fears the site could be developed to build a new shopping centre. The landlords have extended the lease for another year with the venue finally closing its doors on 5th January 2017. Promoters and artists will no doubt be queuing up fast to fill the calendar before final closure.Coronet 2
