TONY PAYNE LIVING THE ''LIFE''


We all know Tony Payne is no longer Mrs 9ice..she has since moved on with her life, from being a mother, to a fashion and record label owner...to being a publicist and artiste manager...currently, she has decided to be a spoken word artiste by releasing a track titled dare to question love...an emotional piece

I do not know how far she will go with this because her hands are really full now with so many things..i hope it wont be a case of Jack of All Trades, Master of None...It seems most celebrity women go into marriage to get some charm because ones they are out of that marriage, they begin to fly so high like eagles..and also be a treat to the career of their ex-husbands...

I remember Agatha Amata, Monalisa Chinda, Kate Henshaw and Tony Payne..these women and some others have lifted up their game in their respective fields and walked the corridors with shoulder high, irrespective of the marital damage to them...i am not promoting divorce but if you are having a serious issue in your marriage, which is beyond you...then opt out before it is too late...and again i say, marriage is only for the matured.

TRIBALISM...A TOUGH VIRUS IN NIGERIA

Do you remember this lyrics...Me i like my country...I like Nigeria people, everything dey for Nigeria...make we join hands, to make Nigeria better..i guess some of us can but the reality check is that there are so many virus affecting our operating system that no antivirus can kill...and a very tough one is tribalism...

I travelled to the east recently and i must confess that i love the Igbo culture...for their hospitality, charisma and spirit of making money, if you know what i mean..and certainly, every tribe has its own unique qualities but a simple word of conflict against any tribe spells trouble, especially if not communicated properly.

On my return from the east with some colleagues, a woman brought up a land purchase issue which has to do with mentioning of names, and instead of just saying the name, she referred to him as Yoruba..and that is definitely a personal attack from an igbo woman..and what do you expect in such a situation where the message was not sent very well...it was a 30 minute battle inside the bus, not physical but the debate over tribalism..it really got personal.

Tribalism has eaten deep into our lives, it is not about how educated or rich you are..it is just a total spirit that dwells in our lives, whenever there is an issue, i feel names should and individuals should be addressed rather than saying it is the Igbos', or the Yorubas' are the ones or is the Ijebus'...we should not dwell on tribes but treat issues personally.

There is no doubt to say that every tribe has certain norms and ethics that should be respected but when it comes to very serious issues, let us move out of that tribe zone and face the real beat of solving issues the right way..i simplyb kept quiet inside the bus and watched these two women battle it out in insults..i am Yoruba and i can easily put sides with the Yoruba woman but what would i gain..more trouble i guess...

If you are a Yoruba Chief Executive, do not give a job to a Yoruba man because he is from your state..but based on deserving qualifications..let us be able to marry from another tribe without conflicting worries about who they are and what evil they can do...it is not a mistake that we are still together as a country..

I have friends across most tribes of Nigeria..and there is no debate over their tribe but i deal with them as an individual, despite all the gist around the country about the Hausa's and Igbos, i still respect them as friends..and the only weapon is love and respect for ourselves...God bless Nigeria




NIGERIA..VERY FERTILE FOR ENTERTAINMENT

All thanks to Goldie as fellow Big Brother Housemate, Prezzo, has found a home in the heart of Nigeria..well, reasons known to him..what amazes me is the denial that he never said Goldie's music was whacked ..seriously Prezzo, we do not expect that from you but i know Nigerians will be happy to receive your music here, only if it is the right stuff because we do not waste time calling your bluff once it does not appeal to us...

As for the politics, you have to get your foot right...i am sure its not a kind of gubernatorial or presidential ambition...because it will only be a disaster for you. I am sure Prezzo has other reasons why he is relocating to Nigeria and not just because of music, acting and politics, which is awkward by the way.

This is actually a good ground for his acting and music career..like i stated, if he behaves well on and off screen, then, Nigerians will love him all the way...this only shows that despite all we go through as a nation, we are still a force to reckon with in the entertainment scene around the globe...we are a nation that loves the arts..and that is why a lot of artistes feel at home...from Rick Ross, Serena Sisters, Brandy and so many Big Brother Stars..they all love the Nigerian Entertainment Culture.

We are accomodating, let us leave out the disparity between the rich and poor..and concentrate on those elements that binds us as one..am talking about sports {football}, music, movies and entertainment as a whole. when it comes to these areas..our spirits soar beyond the skies and we glow for the whole world to see and admire us..we are a happy nation despite the poverty level..

It is not a mistake for having the green color..a fertile color in Agriculture and that has been reflecting in the entertainment scene around the world..God bless Nigeria

FAB STYLISH ACTRESS...GENEVIEVE OR OMOTOLA ?


Its one of those moment where we debate over these two notable screen icons...gene and omosexy, i must say that they both possess a great deal of beauty, charm and brains..and that is why we never stop the argument on who has the skill more..i have my favorite but that does not mean, i do not love the other..

These two have been shortlisted for the FAB Most STYLISH ACTRESS category for the FAB lifestyle awards alongside Rita Dominic, Nse Ikpe Etim and Beverly Naya..Is it really debatable in selecting the winner...I do not think so..?

If you really think you love any of this listed actress, then log on to www.fabmagazineonline.com/awards and give your support..being a fan is not by mouth...

I cannot help but reach out to Genevieve Nnaji...yes, am proud to say she is my most stylish actress presently in Nigeria and Africa...With all respect and value for the craftmanship of Omotola, Genevieve has proved that she is stylish due to the current movie roles she earns, her endorsement deals, fashion label, public appearances and poise..i am not saying Omotola does not have them but i just swing with Genevieve..

KWEEN RETURNS WITH GBO OHUN

Kween is back with a Christmas song titled Gbo Ohun..which means hear the voices of the angels..Well, it is an effort but certainly not a new song, except her own little flavour she added to it..Thanks for putting us in that mood of Christmas but i certainly hope credit is being given to the original owners of this song...

I just hope this is not a strategic way of winning her fans back who must have shifted to other new female acts...Most people might not remember Kween again because she got married and had a second child, and she has been in and out of the United Kingdom...Only time will tell if she still has a seat in the Nigerian Music Industry, a place that is flooded with numerous great acts who have got that sparkle better than Kween.

Kween is a beautiful performer but not a better singer, she is lovely on stage and so, i am certain she can pull off a good act any day, despite being busy with marriage, child care et al..

WHY DO MEN BEAT THEIR WIVES?


How gracious was it for Nollywood Actress and Producer, Monalisa Chinda when she tied the knot with Former Record label exective, Dejo Richards some years back...and only to end the marriage due to alleged wife battery...Monalisa has since moved on with her life and so did Dejo too...but Dejo moved on to get married to another woman known as Lamide in 2011.

Their marriage is about hitting the rocks following claims of domestic abuse from Lamide..she has actually made up her mind...and i ask, why do men beat up their wives?...Something is wrong somewhere and am not saying all men are the same because my father has never lifted up his hands on my mother, even though they did exchange words some times which was more like arguments...

This is not a spiritual matter but a case of irresponsibility which emanates from many factors, among which is upbringing, ego, maturity and so on...I know it is easier to support Lamide but no man has any right to lay his hands on a woman, they are meant to be a helper has the holy books put it, moreso, they make the home...they make every man complete..

This shows that Dejo might not succeed another third marriage if this one finally ends because no responsible woman will endure such a marriage..Please, my advise to ladies is to remain single if marriage will be earning you beating every day...and by the way, Monalisa would laugh at this story..my thoughts..


APOLOGIES TO CHIOMA EHUMADU

I would like to sincerely apologize to Chioma and her friends, perhaps to Denrele for the head tag of the post   of Mr Tourism Nigeria on my blog..It was just a journalistic approach to sell the event...Some friends of hers actually confronted me to know if the story was true but i just asked them to read further...Both of them are actually hosting the pageant and it is a weird combination that will be awesome at the end of the day...Once again, it is just a media approach to sell the event...Keep reading Gisturbia..Thanks

BANKY W STILL ROCKS R 'n B

Bankole Wellington has continued to prove that he is a force to reckon with when it comes delivering good love songs that convince any lady to say yes to any proposal...and also to make them sing and dance along...remember strong thing, now he has two new hit singles. The single, “Yes/No” is produced by Cobhams Asuquo and “Good Good Loving” is produced by Spellz.

I heard the songs online and i must say, Mr Capable is still capable of making our love lives worthy of joy, peace and admiration...The songs Yes/No and Good Good Loving are to serve as fore-runners for his album to be released on February 14 2013 which coincidentally is regarded as a day for lovers.

He has truly convinced us that he can be a chief executive and an artiste at the same time...there is no point to ask him..''What are you capable of...?''

NIGERIAN CIVIL SERVICE- HAVEN OF LAZINESS


The Nigerian Civil Service is a haven of laziness and i mean every word of it..I am a civil servant myself but sometimes, i am amazed by the kind of people that work within the system..Why are they lazy, you might want to ask..? Well, there are several factors...There are some people who are naturally lazy but i am not saying we cannot find hardworking individuals within the service but others have decided to be lazy because at the end of the month, the salary is certain...

The private sector is unique because productivity is paramount...there is no room for laziness because you could be paid based on your level of contribution to the goals of the organization...it is different ball game in the civil service. I am not trying to paint governance in Nigeria bad but in a situation where you are employed for 35 years, except for death and resignation...it is a long way to go and if promotion comes, your monthly salary and bonuses follow you as you climb the level ladder.

Most civil servants come to work at their convenience and that means you can only find few people at work within the resumption hour, there are those who run their personal business and many other excuses...the funny thing is that when they finally resume work, they come up with one excuse or the other...and before you open your eyes again..it is closing hour which is usually 4pm..and they are the first set of workers to speed out of the premises..

This is why the nation is moving like a stagnant water because it is filled up with people who just want to receive some cool cash at the end of the month without contributing a worthy part of them into the system...the government needs to review the working system of civil servant...glory must be given to worthy staffs who believe in where they are being employed...and more so, there are graduates and unemployed persons seeking for a place in the system...




SOME NIGERIAN WOMEN DON'T DESERVE A CHILD

The greatest joy of every woman is motherhood, no matter how they try to avoid it due to career and other factors...and this is a global fact but the amazing thing is the treatment given to some children being born by some women. I know some children can be difficult which could be traced to how the child is brought up in the first place.

I boarded a commercial bus within Lagos last week and i was touched by what i saw..This woman had a little baby on her back and had two other ones with her..an elderly woman offered to carry one of the little child but i guess the boy felt comfortable with his mum, and so he moved to join the mum at the back seat.

The next thing was a slap on the head and she made a statement in yoruba language...that she does not know where she finds such a child...i was moved with shock..in this age when lots of couple are waiting daily on God to carry a child..and someone is lamenting over nothing.

This child should be between the age of 3 and 5..this is totally wrong of any woman..and i feel our government needs to come with laws that prohibit women from maltreating their children..and that is why child abuse is so rampant because if they can do that to their children, what then is the fate of those children working for them as laborers.

This is just one of those everyday experiences i encounter with some women...and they usually go for the head of the child every time, sometimes, very hot slaps that i cannot withstand myself...this is unfair and that is why i say some of them do not deserve a child..there are other instances that they place a curse on the child..which is certainly wrong because curses are known to germinate in Africa and generations after can benefit from it.

THE COMEBACK OF 9ICE...?

Abolore Akande who is widely known as 9ice is making a comeback with some new singles and videos but will he still be relevant in the scene...?

The titles of the new singles are ‘Get Into It’, ‘Ike Kan’, ‘Obawon’ and ‘I Dare You’. He has shot videos for ‘Get Into It’ and ‘Obawon’. From his latest album, Bashorun Gaa, the talented singer has shot videos for two songs, ‘Attitude’ and ’3310′
The Gbamu Gbamu crooner would also be releasing another double album titled CNN and GRA by March, 2013.

There are some talented guys now who can be a rival to 9ice...and he must be careful in his delivery and comeback because if his lyrics, beats and videos can't match up with standards, then, i guess his case will be that of a past glory.

The Nigerian Music Industry has grown so fast that creative talents are being introduced daily and everyone is in a battle to come out with ''mad'' lyrics and videos...its the battle of the fittest and so, Mr 9ice...we all know your worth but you can only prove more by stepping up your game

EXPLORE LIFE AND ITS INNOVATIONS...

This hotel Hotelicopter features 18 luxuriously-appointed rooms for adrenaline junkies seeking a truly unique and memorable travel experience.
It is a helicopter hotel! It has 18 rooms with five-star facilities!...Give me a reason why i won't want to live in this Hotelicopter for rest of my life..totally awesome

LASU SHOULD SELL OFF ITS DEGREE AND FREE LIVES...

Where is the faith that a lot of people had in the Lagos State University..I had an uncle who finished from this school many years ago and i know the quality of education he earned being a graduate of LASU...Today, the story is completely different, as that hope has been destroyed..i am totally speechless.

Yes, the state government is trying to put sanity into the institution by coming up with strategic plans to make it a worthy place but have they put the students into such plans, fees are way to high for some people to afford..but my concern is the External System students, also known as Part time Students..i mean, the evening class guys and babes, who must have worked very hard since morning and go to school in the evening from the hours of 5 to about 9pm daily...including weekends.

These guys spend a lot of money..including myself to have a ''life'' from LASU, I mean a Bachelors in Arts..since that is the defining factor of being recognized in Nigeria but alas, everyone is at home, work or just useless since the part time is not in session...what is happening..?

This is not the first time...in fact, it will be a miracle for the school to start a new session just immediately one ends but no, negative surprises always spring up...it is totally crazy when those that were still seating for an entrance exam into a school suddenly catch up with you..and if you are unlucky, they finish before you..while we are looking unto the altar of LASU to get our degree..

I am of the opinion that LASU should sell off the degrees at any amount...i believe some students will be willing to buy it and move on with their life...i can do without the degree because it does not define my career in any way but for those who are just starting..buying it will be awesome..

LASU should free the lives of its part time students spread across SURULERE, ANTHONY, JIBOWU and so on, afterall, the programme has been cancelled..Moreso, the buying of certificates is not strange in NIGERIA...and in this case, i have the right to buy it off because i have covered almost 4 years with them..

I believe most readers will expect me to give reasons why all this is going on but all i know is that, it is totally wrong and painful for students to have finished a session about 4 months now...and yet to resume a new session...

THE BEST OF NOLLYWOOD AWARDS...?

It is no longer news that there are so many movie awards in Nigeria and quite a few of them deserve true commendation..The new one amongst them is known as the best of nollywood awards...i actually don't have an issue with the motive behind the awards but what concerns me more is the criteria and some of the recipients of some categories...

Let me start with Ibrahim Chatta who was given the Most Promising Act in Yoruba genre...Ibrahim is an ace producer cum director in the Yoruba film industry..If he is promising, then, he just started his career in the make believe world and that is totally weird after the years of experience..

I am also of the opinion that an English movie should be used for the movie of the year, rather than giving it to a yoruba movie because there are cultural differences in all the tribes when they are producing their films..and so, the technicality should not be a major criteria for getting the winner...

Now to the revelation of the year which was given to Moyo Lawal..and again i ask, is it the same Moyo Lawal or who..Do these guys understand what it means to select anyone as the revelation of the year..which means that Moyo was discovered between 2011 and 2012..yes, she might be new to high profile movies but she is not new to the make believe world as she has featured in a lot of soap operas, sit com and all that..

The fact that she was outstanding in the movie that made you go after her, does not mean she is a revelation...Moyo Lawal has featured on past series of the Next Movie Stat Reality Show..that is when The Best of Nollywood should have gone after her...I rest my case but good work on the rest of the categories which includes the lead and supporting roles..

It was also gathered that Actress turned Musician, Tonto Dikeh was absent at the ceremony, which was initially scheduled to perform...There have been much anticipation by many hoping to see the controversial actress mount the stage for her first performance as a music act but She is said to have missed her flight that would have connected her to Lagos from Uyo, Akwa-Ibom State....I don't want to call it stage fright...



CAN THE EXPERIENCE BRING MORE EXPERIENCES...?








The Experience Lagos is one gathering that brings everyone together just like the soccer games, Christians, Muslims..and even the traditional all come together to enjoy live music from some of the world's greatest gospel singers...i have attended three editions so far and i think it is a worthy cause initiated by Pastor Paul Adefarasin...but the Experience was not an experience for some of those present at the 2011 edition.

The general reason for the change of location last year was because of security reasons...and so some people did not feel the experience of being at an experience...It is returning to its original fun spot, Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos...but can it be like before again..?

Everything happens at the experience, from various mobile stands of Banks with their ATM Machines, uncountable food and drink vendors, to the large number of Nigerians singing and praising God with all their heart...We only hope a climate change does not transpire into a heavy downpour and i don;t get all wet just like a previous edition.

I am confident of the security settings for this event and so, everyone should be at ease...and enjoy every moment of the Experience...Make it a date on December 7, 2012 and get experienced like never before...there is also an opportunity to be a volunteer which is more like an ushering job..

JOURNALISM AND ITS FAIRNESS...?

When you tell anyone that your profession is journalism, they become careful of what they do or say before you...it makes the job mysterious because you have to respect the opinion of everyone around you and by that objectivity and fairness will dine with you always...

Just after i posted a write up about Reverend Chris Okotie of the Household of God and his marital ''traumas'', a friend involved me in a chat over my post...and he felt i was painting him bad, stating a case that marriage is not easy...and i do not attack the individual in you but certain characters emanating from those whom we see and adore all our lives.

In Nigeria here, Ministers of God are seen as great role models in the spiritual realm and if there is anything that should stand them out, it is a worthy married life that members of their church can adapt into their own marriage, He is a great person but i do not stand to agree that he can just swing in and out of marriage every time he feels like.

The purpose of my blog is to analyze the news we read or hear from the internet, television, radio or newspapers...and it is meant to give us a better understanding of the story, even without hearing from the sources...a blog is personal and my opinion is constructive.

This is part of the fairness i am talking about..some journalists cannot define true fairness and that could be as a result of other factors affecting the effectiveness of their work..For example, i feel concerned about the various news reports going around about the late Senator Saraki who passed away...Yes, he is a warlord of a big political party..but for some television stations to report and say his death is a great national loss and other things makes me feel unbalanced..some say a national hero...is that fair to those true heroes who are not recognized in the country..?

What makes Senator Saraki's death a national loss...how does that interpret the genetics behind our being a democratic country?...a national hero would have been influential in all sectors of the country and not to some political kingpins...

FUNKE AKINDELE'S FATE IN NOLLYWOOD

Is there any reason why i should be worried about the fate of Funke Akindele in the make believe industry, Nollywood...Well, so much is happening in her life right now and only God can define the way out for her..even friends cannot save her..It is no longer news that she lost her 4 months old pregnancy...and definitely, tongues must have been wagging over the issue.

If i know the country i come from very well, a lot of fingers will be pointed at the other women in the life of her husband...Apart from marital issues, the career of Funke, does not seem to be looking upward, as the case was before her marriage...this is actually my concern...

To handle a career in a one man one wife case is not a joke...and now, you are entangled in a marriage that has two other women and children..this is no good platform for any career driven lady such as Funke Akindele...and the rate at which stars are rising in Nollywood these days, everyone needs to be on his feet.

I am not saying Funke should leave her husband but rather focus on her career which she has built over the years..loosing a baby is very sensitive enough to kill your desire on every other sector of ones life..

THE PREZZO GOLDIE LOVE WIND...

I guess we have to just endure this wind blowing around us about Goldie and Prezzo, who both met under the Big Brother Africa platform and since then, it is lovey dovey hype all over the media...The couple who attended a mutual friend’s wedding together, were spotted together at the Channel O 15th birthday party..

This is just one of those strategies used by celebs across the world to gather more fame into their basket because we will talk, and gossip about them...especially when they go extreme with their celebrity show off attitude in public glare...They were also rumoured to have got married secretly days ago, news still remains unconfirmed as Goldie denied even seeing Prezzo when asked if they were dating days ago.

Is this one of those ill wind that blows no good...time will tell but enjoy the fame while it lasts PREGOLDIE.

IS THIS A MOCKERY OR THE REAL DEAL...?

Wizkid and Jude Engees Okoye says they are mocking the Illuminati sign...is this true or they are actually showing to us that, they are confirmed, sealed and delivered to the Cult group...Jude Okoye, the President/C.E.O Square Records and Northside Entertainment said he was not even happy because they did not flaunt the sign very well, after sharing the picture above....he must be kidding.

Why share the image, if you are actually making fun of the sign.. 

FRED AMATA AND IBINABO REUNITED IN LOVE...

My first question is why Fred Amata waited for the outcome of the election before he reunited himself with Ibinabo Fibresima...hmmmm...?..Anyways, it is a good advantage to fall in love again when she is the new boss of the Actors Guild of Nigeria...

Vanguard reports that  the ace movie producer who decked in black suit stormed the event venue, bubbling with life and ever willing to give his support to the mother of his beautiful daughter. Interestingly, upon sighting Ibinabo, who was looking hot in her minis, Fred could not resist her glamorous appearance as he immediately stretched out his hands and hugged her ceaselessly. It was an eternity...

Will this new found romance grow well enough or it is just one of those show offs we see everyday in Nollywood...However, it would be called that during the electioneering campaigns, the renowned actor was strongly involved in campaigning for Ibinabo. It was no surprise therefore that he showed up at the event in support of Ibinabo’s victory at the polls.

THE SEARCH FOR MRS.CHRIS OKOTIE ?

This is not a reality show where beautiful girls will line up before some judges and they try to pick a beauty queen...but this is actually a reality for real as Pastor Chris Okotie is searching for another life partner...yes after some failed attempt..

Some of the ladies who are strongly rumoured to be on this list and whom the man of God has played a prominent role in their lives include:
Sola Salako, who was the church’s head of administration for several years,
Okotie’s close aide, Vien Tetsola, a former Miss Nigeria,
Ure Okezie, daughter of former minister, Dr. Okezie, who later dated hip-hop artiste Soul E, but who has since moved on,
Rose Elishama Ideh, who became a frequent visitor at many of Okotie’s church events, and who played a major role in his last presidential campaign.

All of these women quit the church in the heat of union then hoping that Okotie would one day wake up from the spell of the Calabar beauty, and their prayers were answered in June this year.
The argument of the women against the choice of Stephanie was that Pastor Chris had been the family pastor during her two marriages and Stephanie’s second husband was his oldest church member.
The story now is that since the pastor who was the presidential candidate of his Fresh Party is free from his marriage and has signified his intention to remarry, there is need to return as the race for the role of Mrs. Okotie is open.


What exactly is this about...is there some kind of fame and power attached to this lifestyle..am not trying to judge this presidential aspirant but it calls for concern when a man of God lives this way...and the church elders are not doing anything about it...this is not a celebrity show off game..this is about a legacy, a life worthy of emulation..this is not worthy of emulation at all.

Anyways, if you know any lady worthy of becoming Mrs Chris Okotie..please direct them to the Household of God because this man of God needs a woman by his side urgently...and am serious...i can stand all other single parenting careers but a man of God...never..

THE SHARING SPIRIT OF CELEBRITIES...



Ever since tweeting became a habit for most celebrities, every single thing is been shared to the entire world...and while some are busy sharing off their very private personal affairs, others are waging war against eachother...and some are sharing good news..whichever one is happening, Tweeter is having a famous time hanging out with them..

Presently, everything is been shared in Nigeria...i mean everything and i begin to feel disgust about it...but we could allow some good news like Terry G's new baby, born in the United Kingdom...The Akpako master himself. His fiance, Mimi gave birth to a baby boy on the 1st of November..

The Dance Diva, Kaffy Shafau, who is also C.E.O of Imagneto Dance company delivered her baby boy December last year...Its a good news to see the child growing so well before our eyes...this is far better than what W4 shared on his twitter account or what Muna and Karen Igho shared...

The only warning is that not everything should be shared on twitter, Facebook or other social networking sites across the globe...the internet is a large place and information travels like virus

REMI LAGOS TO BE CREMATED

Respectable Fashion Designer, Remi Osholake, also known as Remi Lagos will be cremated at the Golders Green Crematorium London United Kingdom.. The 51-year-old late fashionista, would on Thursday, November 15, 2012, have a lying-in-state ceremony held in her honour at the JH Kenyon funeral home then cremated the day after.

Remi Lagos died of uterine cancer...She was reportedly receiving treatment at the Harley Street Clinic, London, after she was diagnosed of cancer in October.

A true Fashion icon has gone to rest...

CANDY FABULOUS PRESENTS ''OPOLO ORIN''

It is awesome when children follow the footsteps of their parents..this is a very common scenario in the Nigerian entertainment scene and one of such people is Queen Salawa Abeni's daughter, Okikiola (otherwise known as Candy Fabulous)...she is 30 years old

Okiki is set to start her own music reality show,‘Opolo Orin.’ The reality show, we gather is on the bid to be the very first ever indigenous Yoruba reality based singing competition.
Opolo Orin will showcase talent in alternative Nigerian music genres like Waka, Fuji, Juju and Apala.

Okikiola who runs Candiva Signature, an entertainment company spoke the reality show, she said: ”I saw an audition from Project Fame Ibadan, and an old man didn’t make the cut because he sang in Yoruba language, and honestly he was very talented, and that gave me this idea, so I started working on it.’ She informs it would  feature Dele Abiodun, KWAM 1, 9ice, Laolu Akins, King Sunny Ade, Sir Shina Peters as judges and guest judges.

This is a good legacy in the life of Okikiola and i must say, it is worth it and surely, it is worthy of emulation...so please watch out for a yoruba version of the popular project fame...


WIZKID IS NOT KIDDING ANYMORE...

Wizkid is obviously not kidding anymore has he has truly taken his career to a different peak which is not news to us anymore but what is news is that...his currently rocking international stage like the justin biebers, Trey Songz and so much more..

The BBC 1Xtra show, is one that has had the biggest artists in the world light up its stage and for Wizkid to perform on that same stage, it was going a long way in showing how far he had come...but i hope he does not forget his root and his Nigerian fans

BANKY W AND HIS BUSINESS EMPIRE

I quite admire the creative business of the EME Guys, which is controlled by Bankole Wellington, also known as Banky W...but can he ever get back to good music because so much money is now made from producing huge cash from the likes of WizKid, Skales and others..

As a businessman and record executive, he has enjoyed tremendous success. Banky W is accomplished as an M.C/host, having hosted events such as the 2011 Channel O Awards, and many similar high profile events. Banky has also launched his acting career with a Stellar debut recurring role on the final season of MNET’s hit TV show “Jacob’s Cross”. He also remains one of the most relevant voices for Nigeria’s youth, taking prominent roles in everything from #LightUpNigeria to the Fuel Subsidy Protests.

I feel he has done his best as an artiste but how well did he fulfill his dream as an artiste before becoming a chief executive officer..I just hope we don't hear of different divorce issues among the EME Family members just like the MoHits...

GOVERNOR FASHOLA AND HIS OKADA RIDERS

This is a suggestive idea to the Nollywood guys..please come up with a movie that will truly pass the message of Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola to the Okada Riders in Lagos, i mean the commercial motorcyclists across the metropolis...The essence of the message has not been fully digested by these guys and all they are doing now is to sabotage.

Let me be honest here, the bike riders are sometimes a one way ticket to the grave and i know most people agree with me on this...and so, there is no wrong in banning them from the highways across the state...yet, they have decided to vandalize government public transport systems.

The government of Lagos has taken a step to clean the state from all factors that will affect the healthy living and safety of its citizens..and that must include the okada riders, they ride at high speeds, some of them are not well trained or certified to ride...and sometimes under the influence of alcohol.

I am totally in support of this initiative...they can operate within their local governments and not taking everyone to the hospital or mortuary everyday..and they should please stop the resolution of saying they are graduates..because most of them are actually artisans.

EVA ENDS AFFAIR WITH TRYBE

Just after 5 months of a sizzling romance between Rap Artiste, Eva and Trybe Records, the two have decided to call it a happy ending...but not quite because, there are reports saying there are excesses coming from Eva..

Trybe Records’ statement released today announced the termination of the contract binding the label and the female rap artiste. It read:
‘Trybe Records and Eva Alordiah have agreed to terminate her recording contract effective immediately. Trybe Records’ vision is to discover and nurture the talents of our artists while operating with purpose, valuing relationships with our partners within the industry, and being persistent in creating and releasing quality music. Unfortunately, over the past 5 months Eva’s vision has not aligned with ours and thus, both parties have agreed to separate.
We wish Eva the best in her future endeavors and plan on continuing towards our goal of creating quality music for Nigeria and beyond‘.

 As you know, it always takes two to do a tango..and so, i cannot label any blame or judgement on Eva but i wonder what kind of demands she might be asking for and probably, she is being influenced by certain people in the industry...she is creative but just a little wrong move could turn you back to square 1...we need to be careful when building our musical career.

Some are of the opinion that she might want to float her own label, which i think its too early...and we already too many jobless record label...who should still be grooming theirselves as artistes

PASTOR T.B JOSHUA AND HIS PREDICTIONS

For everything that occurs in this world, i believe the creator of this earth and the universe knows about it, even before it happens...and so, every Pastor, Reverend, Bishop that states predictions is perhaps living on a grace to say it and so, that gives him spiritual value and fame, especially, in Nigeria...where miracles are like winning an American visa lottery.

I am not saying Pastor T.B Joshua is wrong or right..but he has always been in the forefront of giving predictions...in sports, politics, law and other sectors of Nigeria and even the world at large...the amazing thing is that some even give predictions of a calamity that will befall an entire nation and i ask, are these the plan of God for us...?

In everything we do, let us put it to God in prayer, i don't think we have to publicize everything, except we are searching for fame...
as for his predictions that Obama will win...we all know that Obama has the chances because of the factors in his favor, he is the incumbent and that is a high favor for someone who America loves so dearly.

Yes, his predictions were correct but...we all know Obama will win

SEUN KUTI....IS THIS ANOTHER FELA?

We all love the late Fela Anikulapo Kuti for his music, his patriotic spirit to move Nigeria forward and all other acts...and yes, he has lots of children...Seun Kuti is one who has been living the life of Fela and it seems the addiction is getting stronger as he now has a tattoo on his back stating Fela Lives...

He has once been confronted on the issue of taking Marijuana but he comfortably gave a positive response about it...Do i smell where this is going...? Yes, we respect the gene and blood of music that flows in  their blood but am sure, not everything must be adapted from their father..He lived a fulfilled life but there are lessons for all from the kind of life he lived.

I am sure Seun Kuti still has lots of surprises for us aside the tattoo on his back..Only time will tell but he should be very careeful because his career is very important than living the shadows and footsteps of his father..

SUSAN PETERS ADOPTS BABY GIRL...

Nollywood  Actress Susan Peters has continued to prove that she has a heart of gold, as she recently adopted a baby girl from Ogun State...Susan recently launched her charity organization – Susan Peters Foundation with the Benue Pikin project on her birthday – May 30th has continued with her charity cause.

This is a cause most of our celebs must adopt by giving back to the society that made them, we buy their films, visit the cinemas to see them, attend their album launches and other events they produce, charging huge gate fees..but not all of them give back.

WHY DO CELEBRITIES TWEET AND SHARE EVERYTHING...?

I recently posted a report on the legacies of a celebrity which came up from the pictures shared by Big Brother Winner, Karen Igho..but it is now a culture for celebs to tweet and share everything....and i wonder if that is way they relate personally with their fans..

Here is Muna, one of my favorite rap artiste celebrating her birthday and it really looks like she is having a nice time...but exposing those vital organs is completely out of line for an ex beauty queen in Nigeria...i am totally speechless about this.

Not everyone cares if you tweet and share all your beautiful skin to the world to see but there are certain parts that is called private...we don't mind a little show off but this is too much for our eyes muna...and for the records, you are being admired and adored by the young ones...is this a legacy or what?

OBAMA...KING OF ORATORY

It is no longer news that this gentleman called Obama has been re-elected as the president of the United States of America under the Democratic platform...certainly, i saw this coming based on the different factors, he is an incumbent president but the most fascinating of all is his art of public speaking.

He was just out of law school and had been invited to write a memoir after becoming the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. The book emerged to friendly reviews, sold unremarkably and fell out of print. It’s a personal book, apparently unguarded. In it, he describes his memories of the month he had spent, as a schoolboy, with the father who had lived for most of his life on another continent. The chief thing that struck the child about his father was the way he spoke.

Obama made his first political speech as a very young man. At university in Los Angeles, he had become involved in student politics and he was called on to introduce a small anti-apartheid rally. It was a crowd, as he describes it, of “a few hundred restless after lunch” – with a couple of half-interested students playing frisbee to one side. Yet as he waited to speak, he recalled “the power of my father’s words to transform. If I could just find the right words, I had thought to myself. With the right words everything could change – South Africa, the lives of ghetto kids just a few miles away, my own tenuous place in the world.” He mounted the stage, he writes, “in a trancelike state”.

I wish i can have leaders who can command attention just like this noble man in my country, he is poised, charismatic, smart and a reputable leader who wants to serve and not to be served.

THE LEGACY OF A CELEBRITY?

I quite agree to say that not every one is perfect in terms of judgement of character and behavior but once you have made up your mind to rise to that fame board, there are a lot of things that comes to your table..and respecting and having some regard for your country is one thing...

We seem to forget that we are so influential..positive or negative, and there are some very young ones who watch every step we make...this is totally wrong of karen i must say..Some of us hide under the factor of saying...just be yourself when you are a star but this is certainly out of line.

And yet, most of them are employed by media organizations, granted endorsement opportunities that run into millions of naira...Lets have a little respect for our society by doing positive things that will speak well of us

WOULD YOU SELL YOUR VIRGINITY FOR $780,000?

This Brazilian student is selling her virginity for $780,000 cheque after putting it online for auction. A man called Natsu, from Japan, fended off strong competition from American bidders Jack Miller and Jack Right, and Indian big-spender Rudra Chatterjee, to secure a date with 20-year-old Catarina Migliorini.
She said she will be using the money gotten from selling her virginity for charity to help poverty-stricken families to build homes.

Catarina will meet her buyer on board of a plane and she will be interviewed before and after the sexual act.
‘I saw this as a business. I have the opportunity to travel, to be part of a movie and get a bonus with it.‘The auction is just business, I’m a romantic girl at heart and believe in love. But this will make a big difference to my area.’

yes, this will certainly make a big difference because ones you have tasted it...you can never stop and that makes you....you know? This is actually a bold move for any girl but i know Nigerian girls will also do it, perhaps even cheaper for a blackberry phone, i pad and so on..that is the plain truth..


AKI AND PAW PAW NOW MOVIE PRODUCERS

Popular Nollywood movie actors, Chinedu Ikedezie aka Aki and his life and on-screen partner, Osita Iheme, aka Pawpaw are not just acting in the movies anymore. The undersize duo are poised to be shooting their movies themselves.according to close source the duo reportedly agreed not to act in movies other movies anymore except the ones produced by their production outfit.

This is not a bad idea but i wonder why the rush for most actors to become producers, is it the money or are they trying to be free from the bondage of being controlled by the directors...How groomed are these dudes anyways, we tastes what Stephanie Okereke did and it was not all that palatable, but i have to give credit to Rita Dominic for her work, The Meeting.

Let us keep our fingers crossed as they are preparing to launch their first self produced movie...The comic acts have floated their own movie production company and they have christened it Aki and Pawpaw Entertainment Nigeria, APEN.

According to source, the duo decided to go on their own to maximize profit and position themselves to help others who may want to go into acting without facing the challenges of going through cut-throat movie producers.

THE DIRTY LINEN IN NOLLYWOOD...

When you become famous in this world, there are a lot of things that begin to change in ones life, dress sense, style, friends and so much more...and certainly, the haters but you can be greater, even in the midst of all these...the annoying aspect of the celebrity life is the bad attitude that comes with their stardom, especially the women.

Yes, we cannot say how true these fights are but it is a dirty linen which most of them wash and iron in the public, waiting for the media to feed on them like preys. i would not mention names here but we know those that do not want to see eye to eye, those that steal husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, job contracts and so on..and yet you say i have a successful career going on..

We should invest our time in resourceful things and not gossiping, fighting, and all sorts because i feel we do not know the extent to which our bad image spreads...even the worlds best publicist cannot save you, especially in Nigeria...once a Nigerian does not like you..that is final and i know most of you care less but have you thought about the effect on your children, family and career...

I know we are human but act maturely in public.

KWAM 1 AND HIS LEGACIES...

King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal is a veteran in the Music industry with a lot of legacies which proves that he is an influential man in every angle of it, these legacies also include the children in his life who have decide to follow the footstep of their father...but my worry is the kind of legacies they want to follow.

Recently, one of his daughter released a naked picture of herself, another son released a pose with the dollar bill in a large quantity and others are releasing singles into the market...it is a great feeling to have most of your children flooding the entertainment scene daily but they should be careful of the wolf called stardom, it comes with a lot of surprises..good and bad.

KWAM 1 should be very careful about his legacies to his children...i am happy he has spent a lot of his resources to bring up his children happily but some of them have decided to carve a niche outside his legacy but still bearing that name, which is worth more than silver or gold..



AARON SUNDAY - NIGERIAN ACTORS SHOULD LEARN TO KEEP FIT

The Nollywood Industry is daily flooded with talents who try to carve a niche for their selves amidst the huge number of stars but that has not stopped Aaron Sunday from stepping on the fame ladder as he has found a love in acting, modelling and voice work.

Aaron has continued to stand himself out with a daily work out routine just to keep fit, though some of his colleagues see this as a threat to them but he has decided to stand his ground and be focused in his career as an actor.

Aaron started with Mama Onome Buka, professionally in 2009 and since then, he has loved every moment...having admired the skills of star actor, Ramseh Nouah.The industry is certainly not about what you studied in School but it is important you get groomed professionally for what is ahead of you because challenging roles will come your way...Aaron took an acting course at Widescreen Actors Academy owned by AK Media Productions, aside being a graduate of Geology at the University of Calabar.

Aaron says Nollywood has been rewarding so far but can be frustrating going for auditions and not getting calls back but he has seen these factors as a motivation to keep moving on..With a lot of Soap Operas to his credit like Two Sides of a Coin, Nowhere to be Found and Crack in the Wall...and also a cameo appearance in Heroes and Zeros...it is just about getting to the peak for Aaron.

This reserved and homely Actor also shares the same love for the modelling world, having featured in commercials for Globacom, Airtel and Gulder...Aaron advises that training is very important for you to have a seat in any film industry and also try to read wide...

Aaron has continued to shine in the spotlight has more producers continue to give him the opportunity to feature in their work, just of recent, he clicked a job with a soap called Bridges..and more still on the way says Aaron..

If there is anything Aaron possesses right now, it is the spirit of confidence and self belief in the brand he sells as one of the Actors with a unique class and value..

EVERY NIGERIAN CELEB WANTS TO SING...

What exactly is wrong with our so called celebs...Yes, God has blessed us with different talents but do not make a fool of those real and gifted music talents by waking up on a sad day to divert into music...when you have no clue about it..

Cossy revealed that, she would be doing an album launch come December 15, 2012 and she plans to feature several notable acts in the album. Though she declined to mention names but she promised that some of the names would be names already making waves in the music industry.

‘’I am putting finishing touches to the album. I can assure you that the album launch would be on December 15th of this year at the Prest Boat Cruise, Lekki. The album is a 15-track album. I am still gonna do small tidying up and work with other acts and producers’’ she said.

What!...a 15 track album, and what should be the lyrical content...how many years of experience, what inspires your music, can you play any music instrument?...i really feel sorry, they should rather spend time developing other important things in their life, career and family...we all can talk with our mouth but not everyone can sing...i mean SING.

SO MUCH FOR THE MARVINS...

It is no longer news that Mo Hits has rebirthed itself to Marvin..which also led to the addition of Tiwa Savage into the family...which is a first lady kind of thing, everyone seems to be loving this new swag but i truly miss the Mo Hit Record...i mean..its Don Jazzy again

Presently, there is a lot of stuffs going for these guys...as they have signed two of Nigeria’s most promising producers, BabyFresh and Altims beat. The talented duo are part of the new wave of music makers making their mark in the continent and beyond.Both producers have worked with the cream of Nigerian talent including D’ Prince, Don Jazzy, Wande Coal, Sound Sultan, Muna and many many more. But now both have found a home in Mavin HQ.

The CEO of Mavin Records, Don Jazzy, has welcomed both of the young producers to the Mavin family by hailing them as the “leaders of the next generation.”
“We older ones are not getting younger,” the Mavin boss joked. “It is a relief to have some young legs and minds to help our project. BabyFresh and Altims are fully activated and I promise there will be many new names for activation soon.”

Meanwhile, D’Prince is set to launch his debut album titled ‘Frenzy’. He just released a video for ‘Take banana’ and three singles titled – Call Police, Real G featuring M.I. and Goody Bag..but am not sure if this group is suitable for Tiwa because am not to moved by the Tiwa i heard under this label but outside that...there's more to her.

Don Jazzy is quite a hero to have remained standing after the drama between him and Dbanj but i only expect him to capitalize on that effect and come out stronger...as a leading label in the music market
