April 10, 2021
Fast-rising singer, Bella Shmurda subtly attacked celebrity disc jockey, DJ Cuppy, who hinted about a future song collaboration together.

This is coming following the saga between the billionaire’s daughter and singer, Zlatan Ibile who dished the Dj after she allegedly refused to pay him for a song collabo.

Dj Cuppy had earlier hinted at having a song together with Bella Shmurda which triggered reactions on social media.

“Abeg oo if we do featuring or song No release am if you never Gimme my money or send my split. My lawyers Dey pars oo Dem just resume work,” he wrote.



“I can never support my husband with house rent, it’s his responsibility” – Lady says

April 10, 2021

 Young lady laments over a discussion with her boyfriend on stepping in to assist with house rent in the future.

According to the lady, it is not in her place to ever support such bills as it is the responsibility of her man.

Seeking advise through an anonymous source, she wrote;

”I’m a 9-5 worker, we were talking on phone this morning and he advised that I think of business, I said yes I already have that in mind for future when kids come, moreover there’s no enough money now and I don’t really have the time cos of work, that’s not the issue but the statement he made was that.

“He doesn’t need to ask me but maybe in future he can ask me to please support with some money for our house rent”, in my mind I’m already having issue with that statement, does it mean he has plans of asking me to contribute for house rent?

”Did he really mean that or I’m I overreacting? I wanted to call him back and clarify but just decided to send this to hear what people think because I can’t be with a man that will be extorting from me as I currently need someone that can support me too, I’m not stingy , I will be doing my own little things but I won’t accept contributing to house rent bill because it’s the man’s responsibility. I want a responsible man that can cater for a family while me a wife supports sometimes or once in a while”.




Tonto Dikeh disgraced again as United Nations tag her ambassadorial award as a fake (Details)

April 10, 2021

 Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh has been ridiculed for the second time as the United Nations have exonerated themselves and has tagged the ambassadorial award/appointment as fake and has nothing to do with them.

This was however revealed by popular Instagram blogger, Xoxocruise, who alleged that the award is a fake and those involved are aiming to target innocent and gullible Nigerians through the media attention and scam them of their money.

Recall that the actress and popular philanthropist took to her Instagram page to flaunt her new ambassadorial deal.

She wrote:

“I was just honored as a United Nations Noble International Ambassador got the United Nations Rescue Services”.

However, the blogger provided evidence of a victim being swindled after he contributed money for a fake United Nations housing project in Nigeria.

Furthermore, a report by BBC says the director of the United Nations Information Center for Nigeria, Ronald Kayanja also claimed the award has no linking with the United Nations.

According to Kayanja, there is a number of civil society organizations around the world that participate in UN meetings of the Economic Social Council (ECOSOC) but that does not mean that they are members of the United Nations.

The blogger wrote on her Instagram page;

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT : Swipe to see evidence ===>
Who will help me tell Tonto Dikeh that the Ambassador award she was given is a scam and those involved are aiming to target innocent and gullible Nigerians through the media attention this so-called award brings… And the end result is to scam them of their hard earned money ?

“From the 2nd slide you can read a WhatsApp conversation I had with my Uncle last year who would have been scammed to transfer his hard earned retirement money worth millions ! They approached him to contribute money for a fake “UN Housing project in Nigeria” to bring some millions for the projet to be awarded and after he’ll make profits…My further investigation proved that their website is creepy and Facebook account is filled with fake charity projects they’re claiming to represent the UN but it’s not true.

“Note that UNDP is responsible for such development project and they work with each UN country offices involved. Not some drunk looking imposter claiming to be some chief Ambassador and giving fake awards to Nollywood stars in order to catfish more victims.

“I will go ahead and add that with my experience working with the United Nation’s there is no such UN agency called the above name …The final slide from BBC @bbcnewspidgin further proves my point.
Merely looking at Tonto’s post you can the influence such fake award is pulling and the danger of victims who will fall into such schemes. Her fellow colleagues are congratulating, hailing and cheering her on.
They don’t bother check before validation endorsing…. Is this the Nigeria we all looking forward to ?

“I’m not against Tonto or any Nigerian celebrity but please guys try and verify before you’re used as part of a 419 scheme. Doesn’t tell well with the damages after all.

Can Nigerian Artistes Ever Win A Grammy Without International Assistance? (A MUST READ)

April 08, 2021

 


I do not know about you, but I still smile with pride when I think about what Burna & Wizzy did for us.

Thanks to them, see our shoulders disrupting airplane movement when we are around other African music acts.

Anyone who underrates this achievement needs a drainage system for bad blood.

Speaking of which, I was also proud of the brotherly support other music acts gave our winners. It takes maturity to do that & mean it because human nature would rather lean towards envy.

As I thought about it, I flashed passed a weird reason why bringing home the Grammy can be a little bit more spectacular.

Here’s the window I saw 👇

King Sunny Ade Got Nigeria The 1st Grammy Invite Because He Worked With Foreign Talents

Every single time we have been invited to the Grammy table, we were in the midst of a very heavy & significant Hollywood company.

Go as way back to our 1st invite as a Nominee. It was 1984, the Category was then called “Best Ethnic or Traditional Folk Recording.”

For the album “Synchro system” by King Sunny Ade. Produced by globally renowned Martin Meissonnier while the King was officially signed on to Island records.

The album had made #91 on the billboard top 100 & the album before this, had Steven Wonder on a track called Ase. KSA’s Hollywood connect was top notch.

Wizkid Grammy Experience Happened Because Of Foreign Attachment

The 1st time Wizkid got a Grammy nomination, he was riding on affiliation to Drake. The album: ‘Veiws‘ if I recall correctly, was up for Album of the year in 2016

His 2nd coming to the table wasn’t without John the Baptist either. This time it was Beyonce who went ahead of our brown skin star boy.

As a fan of Wizzy, it is hard for me to conclude that these two efforts were the best thing he has done in over 10 years, considering that he has had 33 music videos, 44 singles4 studio albums, 16 guest appearances, 7 covers and freestyles.

Yet only the Hollywood attachments could get him a seat at the Grammy table.

Burna Boy Didn’t Win Grammy All Alone Too

In Burna‘s case. Thinking of the Hollywood influence, all I can say is “Wawu!”.

Where do I start from? Puff Daddy as Co-executive producer? Timbaland & DJDS as Producers? A “Naughty by Nature” feature, the contribution of English singer song writer, instrumentalist, and recorded producer Chris Martin?

The feel of British rapper Stormzy? American songwriter, record producer Mario Winans? Or Hollywood superstar sound engineer Mike Dean who has worked for Kanye, 2pac, 2chains & Jay z?

Not to mention solid permits to use samples ranging from Tpains “Am sprung” to Sade Adu‘s “Sweetest Taboo” all propelled by the PR machinery of Atlantic & Warner Music.

Was 9ice Over-Dreaming When He Said He Will Bring Home Grammy?

You would just be fishing for trouble if you read this to mean they couldn’t get there without Hollywood‘s help.

Infact, my point is the exact opposite. The talent in these ones and more Nigerian acts not-nominated has done more than enough to get Grammys without Hollywood influence.

9ice was not overreaching himself when he dared to dream that he would bring home the Grammy with ID Cabasa and Alapomeji Records by his side.

And I pray to live and see that day when we would claim these awards with 100% homegrown productionswritingengineeringsinging, and promotion. With Music & someday Movies and Fashion.

That would say that our talents have not just come of age, but have been given due recognition.

Let us get to that day 1st then we can start looking for the day when we would also be free of the mass market box.

The day when…..” and the Grammy nominees for best R&B single are John LegendPraizSZASimi and Jazmine Sullivan

That would be the day. That would be spectacular. Till then, we are still standing Twice as Tall.

Guys, Do You Think A Nigerian Artiste Can Ever Win Grammy Alone Without International Help?

74-Year-Old Agric Minister, Nanono Marries 18-Year-Old Girl In Secret Wedding

April 08, 2021

 


The minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Sabo Nanono, has married an 18-year-old school leaver in a secret wedding, DAILY NIGERIAN can authoritatively report.

Mr Nanono, 74, ties the knot with the beautiful lady in a secret wedding attended by only three representatives of the septuagenarian groom on Saturday in Jere town of Kaduna State.

“The minister only assigned three people and warned them against disclosing the details of the marriage to people,” said a family source who preferred anonymity.

DAILY NIGERIAN learnt that the bride, simply identified as Rakiya, has already settled in the minister’s Tamandu Close residence in Kano.

Although the minister’s family had kicked against the wedding, sources said Mr Nanono insisted on marrying the girl despite the over 50 years age gap.

“The minister is madly in love. He appeared unstoppable,” said the source.

In October 2019, the minister said there was no hunger in Nigeria as N30 meal is available in the country.

“Food in Nigeria is fairly cheap compared to other countries. In Kano, for instance, you can eat N30 worth of food and be satisfied. So, we should be thankful that we can feed ourselves and we have relatively cheap food in this country,” he said.


STRANGE!! This 22-Year-Old Lady Has Travelled To Every Country In The World

April 08, 2021

 


Lexie Alford was 21 by the time she had reached every corner of the globe. Now at just 22, she uses her online platforms and persona – aptly, ‘Lexie Limitless’ – to inspire budding travellers via Instagram, YouTube and her website.

We caught up with Lexie to celebrate her title as the youngest person to reach every country in the world. Originally from northern California – which she describes in our chat as “the most diverse of the American states, there’s nowhere I’d rather be,” she currently resides full time in sunny Los Angeles.

Hey Lexie! Thank you for joining us. Firstly – have you managed to travel much in the past year or so?

It’s pretty crazy, I was at Carnaval in Brazil the day before the first registered case there (in early March). So I came back to the US and we were straight into full lockdown.

But yes, during lockdown I did manage to travel for work. I went to Turkey to do a two-week road trip for my YouTube, and another two week road trip in Iraqi-Kurdistan.

Did you set out with the intention of becoming the youngest person to reach every country in the world?

It was more of a natural evolution. I started travelling when I was really young because my mum has a travel agency, a business she started when she was just 19. Growing up she would always pull me out of school and take me exploring with her, which was really cool.

This lifestyle meant that by the time I was 18 I had travelled to around 70 countries already. I had graduated early from high school, and got my associates degree by 18.

But one of my biggest dreams, from being 12 years old, was that I wanted to experience what it was like to live for one year of my life with no school and no work. So I saved up, a crazy amount, so I could take this gap year and travel the world.

Opinion! Why Do Females Celebrate Relationships And Marriage More?

April 08, 2021

 


Hi all, it isn’t newswomen to celebrate relationships and marriage more, tends to flaunt it, and for them, it is obviously a very huge milestone for them; they see it as a very big achievement.

The reverse is the case for the male folks as most are mostly indifferent and many will prefer to hide it; my question is, why do female value and put so much emphasis on relationship/marriage?

Is it because they have more to gain?

Or looking for people to fleece?

Your Response/Opinion Is Welcomed.

I will be in the comment section.

Restore Public Trust And Confidence In Police Force – Osinbajo Tells Acting IG

April 08, 2021

 


The police force must work hard to regain the trust and confidence of the public by stamping out the excesses, abuses, and culture of impunity exhibited by some elements within the police according to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN.

Prof Osinbajo stated this on Wednesday at the decoration ceremony of the new Acting Inspector General of Police, Usman Akali Baba, at the State House in Abuja.

The Vice President emphasized that under the leadership of the new Acting Inspector General, “the police must now rebuild the broken bridges of trust with the public and regain the confidence of the citizenry.”

Continuing, Prof Osinbajo reiterated the need for community policing as a way of also securing the lives of Nigerians and called for “implementing the community policing policy and reconceptualizing policing as a task carried out in partnership with local communities and by officers who are members of these localities.”

He noted that the welfare and working conditions of police officers must improve significantly and under the leadership of the Acting IG, officers “must live up to all of the highest standards of professional conduct and compliance to the rule of law.

“You must stamp out the excesses, abuses, and the culture of impunity illustrated by some elements of the force which provoke public outrage against the institution.”

The Vice President admitted that the Acting IG assumes his office at “a very turbulent time in the life of our country,” noting “multiple threats to law, order and public safety.” He stated further that, “the role of law enforcement and in particular that of the Nigeria Police Force as the primary agency charged with maintaining law and order, has never been more important.”
