Nigerian movie superstar actor, Osita Iheme popular known as Pawpaw is no doubt flying high in his acting career. Aside doing well on the silver screens, the pint-sized actor is getting endorsements from all corners as many organisations and individuals want to do business with him. Just recently, the one half of ‘Aki and Pawpaw’ fame landed an 11million naira deal in South Africa.

He may have parted ways with his former bosses Psquare, but it seems like Akinmayokun May D Awodumila hasn’t moved on as the pop singer still performs his former labelmate’s songs. During his performance at the recently held Felabration 2012, at the New Afrika Shrine on Friday, October 19, the pop singer kicked off his performance with Psquare’s ‘Do as I do‘ which features Tiwa Savage and himself. He then goes on to perform his first single ‘Soundtrack‘ before following with Psquare’s ‘Chop my money‘. He wrapped up his set with his hit single ‘Ile Ijo‘. What was more surprising was that the pop singer didn’t just perform his own cameo verses off the Psquare songs but the entire songs. The crowd however still seemed to be thrilled as they danced away. In August 2012, May D cut ties with Psquare after the label boss Jude Okoye released a statement that he had been dropped from Square Records. A month later, the gangly singer announced the launch of his new label Confam Entertainment. source:…

Super Eagles for mauling Liberia 6-1 in Calabar last Saturday to
qualify for next year's Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.Martins is particularly pleased with the work the team's gaffer,Stephen
Keshi has done in transforming the Eagles to a scintillating team
Nigerians saw on Saturday. “They deserve all the accolades they got from everybody and I want to
add my voice to that.They did the unthinkable,scoring six times against
a team that forced them to a 2-2 draw in the first leg. “The result will not only bring confidence back to the fold but also
shows that Stephen Keshi is really working hard to see that Nigeria
reclaims her rightful position on the world map”,he said.While optimistic of getting a recall to the Eagles,Martins says he
still has plenty of room for improvement at his new club after scoring
two goals in his first three games.The 27-year-old striker who joined the La Liga side on a two-year de…
Tiwa Savage is one of Nigeria’s most talented singers and songwriters.
That she is beautiful is no news. She is an embodiment of sexiness and has a captivating aura and personality.
Until recently Tiwa Savage had not been linked romantically with
anyone, except if you count the rumoured-but -vehemently-denied
relationship with Mavin Records boss Don Jazzy.
Is that is about to change?
The Mavin first lady was seen at the Elite Model Look 2012 recently held in Lagos in company of her beau Manager Tee Billz,
and the pair looked like an Item – eye witnesses say they both stepped
on the red carpet in style as they posed for photographs.
Tiwa is usually alone on the red carpet so it really was a big deal
this time, since she had company, as all attention quickly shifted to
the couple, and the cameramen kept clicking away.
Tiwa Savage and her manger Tee Billz seemed to enjoy all the
attention, and he may have used that opportunity to pass on a message
as she planted a soft kiss on Tiwa’s che…
The Lagos State Government has turned the house of the late Afrobeat
legend, Fela Kuti, into a museum to “promote cultural heritage and mark
the 74th birthday” of the legendary musician.
Inside the museum located at 8, Gbemisola Street, Allen Avenue,
Ikeja, to be and managed by Total Consult, are Fela’s trademark items
like dresses, shoes and household materials.
The dresses are about 3,000.
Others include covers of the albums of the late musician.
Images on the album covers bear a variety of styles and typefaces
which echo and comment on the works and politics of the artiste.
According to the state Commissioner for Tourism and Inter-Government
Relations, Mr. Disun Holloway, the Kalakuta Republic Museum is to bring
back the old social life and culture to Lagos.
He noted that it was impossible to overstate the importance of Fela to Lagos and the global musical village.
He said, “It is only appropriate to have chosen a day as this to
declare this monument open today to mark the 74th pos…
The Inspector General of police Mohammed Abubakar has revealed that
the four students of the University of Port Harcourt, who were
gruesomely killed by a mob in Aluu, a community in Rivers State on 5th
October were not armed robbers. The IGP, in a statement issued Monday in Abuja explained that
findings have shown that the victims were not armed robbers but had gone
to the area where they met their unfortunate death to demand for money
allegedly owed to them by one Coxson Lelebori Lucky, alias ‘Bright’, who
raised a false alarm that the victims were armed robbers. The statement noted that Coxson has gone underground, even as it
stressed that detectives were on his trail. “Intelligence report also
implicated Alhaji Hassan Welewa, as being the person who incited the mob
to unleash terror on the victims. Further investigation conducted by the police indicates that four (4)
suspects, namely: Felemo Solomon; Cynthia Chinwo; Ozioma Abajuo and
Chigozie Samuel Evans have been c…
Arsène Wenger has asked his network of scouts to search for another new
striker ahead of the January transfer window as Arsenal continue the process
of replacing Robin van Persie.
Although encouraged at how the goals have been spread more evenly around the
team this season, Wenger would ideally still like further back-up to Olivier
Giroud as the main centre-forward in his 4-2-3-1 system.
Wenger has specifically told his scouts to be on the look-out for potential
new attacking options over the coming months, with Fernando Llorente, Adrián
López, Robert Lewandowski and Stevan Jovetic among those being monitored.
The interest in signing another striker reflects an understanding that Giroud
cannot be expected to instantly adapt to the Premier League, although his
development over the next three months will inform how Wenger approaches the
January market. Giroud scored his first Premier League goal in the 3-1 win
at West Ham on Saturday but there is a se…
Facebook just reached 1 Billion members. A pretty amazing feat when you consider it's only been around for 8 short years. During that time it has completely changed the world we live in...well at least for the small niche billion of us who use it. But that makes it as good a time as any to reflect on how we use such a powerful tool. Over the past decade we've probably seen more vices than virtues on display regarding our use of social networks. But, like a young student with anything new, it can take some trial and error before one starts getting it right. And no matter what kind of expert you are on online social networking, we're all young students at it. One thing's for sure, however, it's not going away. The way we share and connect with each other has been changed forever. But, while the technology and format may be very new, the point of it all is not. Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, says this about it:"For the first time in our history, we’ve made a…
