The pair who fell out a while back seem to have made up and it took  game of  FIFA15 to bring them back together.

 I spot Don Jazzy's pic. I don't think I'll be wrong if I say the reconciliation was done in his house then. Oh well!! Good to know they have made up.

Social media was on fire a few days back when Meek Mill accused Drake of paying a ghost writer, Quentin Miller, of writing some of his songs. Well, the ghost writer has come out to tell his own side of the story. Read it below.........

Winter 2014… I was just another guy working a job he hated with a passion for music…. And somehow found myself on the phone with One of my idols..

i told him i worked in a bakery and his exact words were “F*ck that, your destined for greatness”…

Hearing that from someone that I’ve been studying since 2009, bar for bar…. Theres no way to describe that..

Most of the project was done before i came in the picture.. i remember him playing it for me for the first time thinking “Why am I here?” like.. what does he need me for??

This is the second time the actress has featured in his music video. She featured in his "Africa Dance" video alongside celebs Alibaba, Weird Mc, Denrele et al sometime back .

They look good though. :-)

"It is tragic that no Nigerian woman was deemed qualified to travel with the President".................... Dele Momodu

Dele Momudu penned this incredible piece for Thisday newspaper. The brilliant writer and social activist shared his views concerning Pres. Buhari's recent  trip to America. While he applauded the president for some noble, he also charged the president to hit the ground running. He also caution him on his anti corruption crusade............

"Nothing kills a war against corruption than creating the impression that someone is on a vengeance mission".  

Read the full article below.........
 Fellow Nigerians, I hope you followed our President’s visit to America, their America, early this week. Love them or loathe them, the Americans are in a class of their own. Most of those who complain the most about the supposed verbosity and ruthlessness of the Americans always dream of visiting what has been aptly tagged God’s own country. The reason is simple. America has branded and positioned itself as the greatest nation on earth and you can’t argue this with a people who are fastidiously convinced about their country’s superiority over others. Woe-betide any American President who is not able to defend this creed or hype with all his might and faith. America and Nigeria share a lot of commonalities as I shall elucidate in a moment.

Americans love their country to bits. Trust me, Nigerians probably love theirs more despite being our own worst critics. Indeed one can trace the oftentimes virulent criticism to the great love for a nation that those critics feel has been raped and betrayed uncountable times. Wait till an outsider attacks Nigeria before you see or feel the vibes of patriotic zeal in us. We can abuse our country endlessly but will never allow strangers to do it for us.

US Senator Patrick Leahy claims Soldiers fighting Boko Haram are murderers and rapist

Senator Patrick Leahy is an American Senator who sponsored a bill that was later signed into law called the "Leah law".

The Leah law seeks to protect human rights by  prohibiting the U.S. Department of State and Department of Defence from providing military assistance to foreign military units that violate human rights.
Well Pres. Buhari criticised this law when he visited the US citing it as one of the reasons why America refused to offer aid to NIgeria yo fight Boko Haram.

The senator did not let this allegation slide as he fired back claiming Nigerian soldiers fighting BH are rapist and murderers. Excerpts....

“It is well-documented by the State Department and by respected human rights organisations that Nigerian army personnel have, for many years, engaged in a pattern and practice of gross violations of human rights against the Nigerian people and others, including summary executions of prisoners, indiscriminate attacks against civilians, torture, forced disappearances and rape.
Rarely have the perpetrators been prosecuted or punished. This abusive conduct not only violates the laws of war, it creates fear and loathing among the Nigerian people whose support is necessary to defeat a terrorist group like Boko HaramPresident Buhari ignores the undisputed fact that most Nigerian army units have been approved, under the Leahy Law, for U.S. training and equipment.
Only those particular units against which there is credible evidence of the most heinous crimes are ineligible for U.S. aid. And even those units can again become eligible if the Nigerian Government takes effective steps to bring the responsible individuals to justice. I strongly agree with President Buhari about the need to defeat Boko Haram, and I have supported tens of millions of dollars in U.S. aid to Nigeria for that purpose. But rather than suggest that the United States is at fault for not funding murderers and rapists in the Nigerian military, he should face up to his own responsibility to effectively counter Boko Haram. He should direct his attention to the Nigerian military, and the Nigerian courts, and clean up the units implicated in such atrocities.”

Etcetera to Nigerian musicians......."Some of these artistes should be taken for mental evaluation"


Haah!!! Etcetera is out with his no holds barred article today and the people feeling the wrath of his tongue this time are Nigerian musicians, especially Olamide whom he specifically called out. Read his article below.........

"What is there about this music that is so gripping? How can something so meaningless hold millions under its spell? Why does it serve as a common denominator – as “the tie that binds” – for so many youths? Judging from how and what they’re saying and singing, it is easy to conclude that some of these artistes should be taken for mental evaluation! Music mirrors our emotions; it reflects our thoughts; it echoes our activities – it shows us the way we really ARE! Most Nigerian artistes are confused and bewildered – or they wouldn’t sing songs about not being able to tell right from wrong, or songs which purposely don’t say or mean anything, or which try only to “embody an emotional state that points indirectly to marijuana and crazy sex positions.” he condemned.

From his piece, we round up these five points.
1. This is now a SICK SOCIETY and, therefore, it produces SICK MUSIC. It’s just that simple! Both parents and the young people are to blame. My point is, we all don’t have to be a part of this sick society – or its sick music.

2. Even talking about today’s gospel songs, many are lacking in purpose and quality. The gospel singers are forgetting that God believes in QUALITY. Look at the universe He created! He also believes in human improvement and GROWTH. “Become ye therefore perfect” (Matt. 5:48) and “Grow in grace and knowledge” (II Pet. 3:18), He commands.

Maje Ayida in new Interview........."I love my wife dearly”

Shortly after Maje apologized to Toke Makinwa recently, Saturday beats contacted both parties to know the next step forward for the couple. This is what Maje said when he was contacted........
“I would rather not talk about the issue now. I am not just comfortable talking about my personal life publicly. It is not something that I normally do. Most times I grant interviews it is usually related to my work. It is not something I really do and I don’t want to start doing it now especially with this issue going on. It is a private thing and part of the point of my message was to keep it private. I expressed that in the message. I would rather not talk about it. But I love my wife dearly.”

Pres. Buhari will probe the Niger Delta Amnesty program.....Femi Adesina

 According to what the  Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina  said on AIT.......
 “Don’t also forget that if a situation or process was riddled with corruption and you come saying you are going to clean up the system, and then you continue to just run on the same steam of what you met on ground then you have not changed anything.
“There are a lot of issues about it and the President is studying those issues. After he has finished studying them, the package will be unfolded on amnesty".

Mr Adesina denied allegations that he plans on neglecting the Niger Delta region........
“If you follow that conversation trend through, you will also recall that the President also said that the constitution has protected all parts of the country, every part, and no part can be marginalized. So it is only somebody who takes part in what he said that will want to make mischief out of that. But if you take it as a whole, it is clear.

“Talking of amnesty and all that, the President has said he still believes in the programme and will keep it going. But that he is studying the report. He is studying the one he met on ground. When he studies it fully something will be done.”
