WARNING! YOUR FAVORITE NIGERIAN CELEB MIGHT SERVE A JAIL TERM...

It is no longer news that the presidency has commenced a full investigation into the last administration with the misappropriation of funds being a top priority...a situation that is currently affecting a lot of people in the country but can all these money be recovered? Anyway, a sector that might also face the music of alleged corruption is Nollywood or should I say the entertainment industry.

Former president, Goodluck Jonathan, had an extreme romance with the industry as various factions visited the presidential villa on several occasions all in a bid to support the re-election. The former president also held various dinner balls where financial commitments were proposed towards the development of the industry and I ask, what is the level of impact upon the industry so far...?

I love the industry because it is a form of job creation but it is a shame when a few power weight use their status to eat up the country where poverty strives like the love for football...perhaps they should start confessing before the law catches up with them. Some of us have an idea of the various celebs who visited Abuja like it's a gents or ladies and might be people you look up to in society...so if you know anyone or perhaps you are closer to any and you also spent out of our money, be prepared to share some terms together...

Some people are advocating that President Buhari should just move on with his governance but how about proper accountability from the previous administration;we need to track back and check our errors before moving on and that includes the entertainment industry...

For those producers who have lost it when it comes to film, please stand by because you might just make a great thriller out of the lives of your colleagues when they get to face the dance of justice...I am hoping that all these money will be recovered but am sure quite a number have squandered it on posh trips, clothing, birthdays and more...we are watching and waiting.

TOLU TOOLZ IS OFFICIALLY OFF THE MARKET;STORMS NEW YORK FOR A WEDDING GOWN

Curvaceous, sexy and talented On Air personality, Tolu Oniri who is famously known as Toolz is set to walk down the aisle with her beau, Captain Tunde Demuren who is a co-owner of EME Records...Tolu was spotted in New York alongside close friends where she was trying out a wedding gown. For those of you nursing an ambition to own Toolz, there's someone now piloting her heart and tieing the knot before the end of the year.

Tunde proposed to Tolu during a trip to Dominican Republic in May 2015 and of course,she said yes and that is why she is shopping right.?..since they are yet to announce a date, I do hope it's not taking place secretly away from the prying eye of the press and unwanted guests...My imaginations are actually running wild as to how hot she will look in a wedding gown but congrats to her and will she keep her name or fully become Demuren?

CAN BBA STAR, TAYO FANIRAN LIVE UP TO EXPECTATION IN TINSEL?

The showbiz industry in Nigeria has continued to produce new brands into various areas such as television, drama, music, fashion and in fact, some have actually combined all into one trade based on certain privileges they are enjoying either as discoveries or winners of a talent show. Big Brother Africa star, Tayo Faniran is one of those people currently capitalizing on his time at the highly watched reality show as he has been casted as a part time cover for newly wed Gbenro Ajibade who is on a post-marriage vacation widely known as honeymoon.

Tinsel is a highly rated and award winning television series and is noted for great talents who know their skills very well as an actor but I do have my reservations about Tayo's choice...was it based on his status as a celebrity, does he have a track record of acting or somehow, it is assumed he is a better looking version of Soji as played by Gbenro...?

He is an accomplished model, a fashion designer and creative artiste but I still have my reservations when he presents on African Magic...Tayo is fair as a presenter but can he do better as an actor? Will he live up to expectation and shock his critics even though it will only be to his advantage as more producers will keep their eyes on him and then the deception continues when producers call for audition but actually have their choices...the likes of Tayo will not stay up in queue for long trust me...

If I think along with the Tinsel team, Tayo actually has similar mannerisms like Soji and am sure he was picked based on that and not necessarily his acting prowess...Meanwhile, Gbenro and his wife Osas actually met on the set of Tinsel before deciding to do a for better for worse thingy and Gbenro might just decide to move to other things after the honeymoon because marriage can change a lot of things.

TINSEL is actually more than a drama as it is also a haven for finding true love because most of the actors spend longer hours together...


$500 MILLION LAWSUIT HITS EMPIRE...

Success has lots of friends and foes but against all that, some matured people just take it as another stepping stone. EMPIRE is one television series that has stolen the hearts of many including me and though some people have argued that there's nothing extraordinary about the story...they might be right but when it comes to right casting and balanced dialogue, EMPIRE hits it hard for me. This is actually not about the huge success and popularity of this series but the various lawsuits that have been emerging from all corners against the producers and the television network in charge of production.

The present lawsuit is by Jon Astor-White, owner of a Las Vegas based media outfit who claims that his 2007 idea is what is being enjoyed by millions of people across the world and I asked myself, why did you wait till now before you had to cry out...the power of success can be a hard pill for some people to swallow. Anyway, If he gets through successfully, we are looking at his account getting an additional $500 million alongside damages that must also be paid.

Jon claims to have titled his idea as King Solomon in 2007 and passed on a network and feels it must have leaked from there...I hope my EMPIRE would survive all of these because there has been three other suits before now...a certain record label named empire distribution wanted producers of the show to drop the name but that was overcomes, another $1billion suit was filed against the producers and not forgetting a $300 million suit filed by Sophia Eggleston who claimed that the Cookie identity and story was mirrored after her life events.

Meanwhile, all lovers of Empire should please prepare to get thrilled and entertained as the second season will begin next month but as for the lawsuits, am sure it's just a phase and will surely fade away.

OPINION-NIGERIANS HAVE EATEN THEIR CAKE AND STILL WANT TO HAVE IT

The lyrics in my head this morning after I had my morning prayer was the quest for change...that change to keep doing what I actually love doing because some people believe in what I do and so I thought about my country....are we about to destroy this country or what? We asked for change but yet will not let this government work. I do not care if this present administration wants to use its four years to probe because sometimes you need to trace back your steps to rebuild and look around the world for a minute and tell me if Nigeria does not need that...?

Yes I do understand the feeling of having a complete uninterrupted three square meal, free education, free transportation perhaps and incomes of 8 figures...they do not come easy? If we never wanted to be in this mess, we should have seen the future instead of running from pillar to post now and that means tracking back to 1960 but am sure there's no need crying over a split milk.

Ironically, the voice of change has filled up the legislative houses and has that even brought the needed change...? Well, like my Yoruba people will say "the weep being used to beat the elder wife is the same that will be used for the wife..." when the law takes its true place as being requested by some people, do not forget that it will come back hunting you too...Am sure some readers know what I mean...let us just hope, watch and pray that they get things right probing or no probing.

For those of us who see and believe in a better Nigeria, do not give up on that...For those who want to give President Buhari blood pressure, it is well with you...I believe Nigeria is working and will work, corruption or no corruption...you have done your part to vote but do not become completely manipulative just because it is called a democratic system, remember, there's a due process and wait a minute...we must be fools thinking change will happen overnight...Am done!

OPINION-ATTITUDE CAN KILL A LADY FASTER THAN A MAN

A woman is a phenomenal being that can bring about a positive development to a family and society. She is a strong pillar and I respect a woman, more so, when you think about the saying; hell hath no fury like a woman scorned but one thing that can kill both man and woman is attitude.

Some people say I do have an attitude but I do not agree even though it might just be an opinion. I boarded a commercial bus today and a dark young lady with no ear rings sat directly beside me...and as we journeyed, she asked me if I have a hundred naira to balance a fair of two hundred naira; we were heading to Oshodi and I said no...well, I actually had just a two hundred naira on me aside a 1000 naira, she asked two other guys until a man beside me offered to help...I can't even remember if she said thank you...anyway, what led me to write about this was when she started a "style me" show in the bus, first she fixed her ear rings and then started to use her two hands to brush her hair backwards...

She continued until the man behind her had to tap her to take it easy with what she was doing but to my greatest surprise, she called his bluf and told him never to touch her again...Like seriously, you need to see the look of this diva or is it her appearance...the man was about to hit her but she never cared...I was glad I didn't help her with the 100 box because I will be very ashamed...it might not be an attitude but truth is a lot of us in Nigeria need to constantly visit a shrink who will help us through a lot of drama in our lives.
