New Music – Asa – The Beginning

ASA’s voice appears just as a soulmate that was gone for too long.« One of us must have a last say / Words like dagger we try to hurt each other » : These are the first words of the new single « The Beginning ». This double meaning song also announces the start of a new musical chapter for ASA. From the very start of the song, we remember all the reasons why we love the Nigerian songwriter : even with soft harmonies, the strength of emotions keep filtering through ASA’s voice. Her melodies fill the heart with words that can either comfort or « hurt like a dagger ». This first track announces an emotional rollercoaster, and it is just the beginning… Lyrics : Asa, Patrice Bart-Williams Music : Asa

Buhari Is Overwhelmed By Security Challenges Of The Country Says Ruggedman

Michael Ugochukwu Stephens, popularly known as Ruggedman, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari is overwhelmed by the security challenges the country is currently facing.

The rap star said this while speaking in an interview with SaharaTV. 

Ruggedman urged the President to always appoint the right persons to positions of authority if the country is to make progress.

He said, “I feel the president is a bit overwhelmed and he needs to put the right people in the positions for the job.

“We also need people to hold other government officials, from the local government chairman, governors, senators accountable.

“Security is in shambles in Nigeria right now as there are some states you cannot travel to by road.”

Ruggedman also bemoaned the extra-judicial activities of the Police and inability of Police chiefs to hold officers accountable for their actions.

“Obviously, there is a whole lot of work that needs to be done about security. It seems to be getting out of hand, it was Boko Haram, herdsmen and now it is policemen or some group of policemen.

“Security is a big issue right now that needs to be tackled seriously as it is getting out of hands

“Now, a whole lot of people are falling victims to rogue policemen. The police who are to enforce the law actually break them, some of them, he explained.

The rap star called on the government to check the extortion of Nigerians by personnel of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Special Anti-Kidnapping Squad and Special Anti-Cultism Squad of the Police.

He lamented that the matter has taken a worse turn while adding that killings by police are daily increasing.

“SARS are off the street, most of the report we get now are done by anti-cultism or anti-kidnapping.

“The sad part of it is that the crime rate is being done by rogue policemen, that’s the sad and the frightening part. I don’t know what’s causing it because they all seem to be out for money,” Ruggedman said.

He also stated that Police officers see Nigerians as cash cows and only arrest for extortion sake

“They don’t arrest people for committing offences, they arrest people because they will accept bail. The only thing that is allowing this to happen is because there is no accountability.”

Ruggedman, who has lately been outspoken against cybercrime and internet fraudsters urged Nigerian youths to dissuade from the act.

“There is really no justification for youths to go into cybercrimes.

“Yes, the government is not doing what they are supposed to do for the citizens, there is no job, health is in mess, a lot of things are in a mess in this country. All I see is that anyone going into cybercrime is just adding another mess to the whole group of mess. What is wrong is wrong.”

He challenged Nigerians to stop complaining and begin to act to put an end to actions by the government that are not in favour of the people.

“What Nigerians need to do is to stand up because just speaking and complaining is making the whole thing get worse.

“A lot of all these bad people in position in Nigeria have seen that all you (Nigerians) are are internet gangsters, noisemakers and activists. It starts and ends on the internet.”

‘You Are Hypocritical, Game Of Thrones Is Straight Out Of Bible’ Daddy Freeze Blasts Ghanaian Pastor

Ifedayo Olarinde, ace media personality, better known as Daddy Freeze has reacted to  a pastor’s comment asking Christians to desist from  watching ‘Game of Thrones’, a popular TV series that is now the talk of the town.

Adapted from  A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R, ‘Game of Thrones’ has ‘garnered’ a vast and variegated pool of fans across the globe.

However, a certain Pastor Victor Eghan on Facebook had on Saturday said viewers of the HBO hit TV series, Game of Thrones, were potential candidates for hell.

Freeze, in his reaction on his instagram page, said it was hypocritical of the pastor to have made such statement.

“Dear Pastor, it is absolutely un-scholarly and downright hypocritical to tell people to stop watching `Game of Thrones` without telling them to also stop reading the Bible, because there is hardly any difference between the story lines of both.

“Game of Thrones had 865 deaths, the Bible had more than two million; David killed 200 men and cut their foreskins just to marry Saul’s daughter.

“Game of Thrones had 17 rape cases; the Bible also had many: David’s daughter Tamar was raped by her own brother Amnon.

“Dinah, daughter of Jacob and Leah, was also raped and her brothers committed murder in their revenge.

“While many scholars suggest that David himself raped Bathsheba, Solomon’s mother; Solomon also murdered his own brother Adonijah because of a girl called Abishag.

“Game of Thrones had 144 scenes of naked people.

“The Bible also has a major scene; David dancing almost naked in front of the whole city, while Christ himself was stripped naked publicly and beaten before being crucified.’’

He continued by saying: “You say there are prostitutes in game of thrones. Aren’t Christ, David and Solomon all descendants of a prostitute named Rahab?

“Therefore, this submission is ignorant and does very little to showcase anything apart from your ignorance of the scriptures,’’ Daddy Freeze said.

Event and Lifestyle Blogger, Helen Ozor Shares Her First Time Experience Meeting Don Jazzy at an Event

So I was invited to Latasha Ngwube’s birthday gig lastnight. The event kicked off at 8:30pm yesterday. Some guests had arrived early and by 9:45 pm, we had more guests in the house. One of the guest who walked in at about that time was the King of the Mavin Dynasty Don Jazzy.. He walked in with DJ Big N.

I was in the midst of some guys i had met at the party and we were all chatting up when Don Jazzy walked in.. As soon as he grabbed a sit close to us.. these guys hailed the him, grabbed their phones and had a filled time taking pictures with him. I watched him and the guys with so much attention.

What struck me the most was Don Jazzy’s humbleness. I’ve met quite a number of celebrities at events who give an attitude but that wasn’t the case here. For everyone who walked up to him to say ‘hi’ , Don Jazzy bowed his head while stretching his hand for an handshake. He also got up a couple of times to greet . Like how? Don Jazzy of the whole universe?

You will expect that he’ll either frown, refuse to strike a conversation or just outrightly snub you over pictures. On a scale of 1 to 10, i can say for a fact that Don Jazzy is one of the celebrity in my good book of the best Nigerian celebrities to meet. Just make sure you walk up to him at a perfect time, have something meaningful to say and make sure there’s no much pressure around him.

On a scale of 1 to 10, i’d give him a 10.
Whenever you spot him anywhere be rest assured that you don’t have to worry about him embarrassing or snubbing you. If you take a picture that doesn’t look nice, take it again. He won’t fuzz about it. That is just who he is. He’ll speaks to you with so much respect and regard. I’m sure you’re already looking forward to meeting him lol … Don’t dull when you see him oh.. seize the opportunity but don’t ask for money or favours. It cheapens your personality.

Personality: 10/10
Smile: 9/10
Calmness: 10/10
Conversation: He’ll listen to what you have to say with so much attention.

Watching Game Of Thrones Makes You Potential ‘Candidate For Hell’ Says Ghanaian Pastor

Victor  Eghan, a Ghanian pastor, has declared those who watch the popular Games Of Thrones TV show as potential candidates for hell.

The pastor stated that the show contravenes the tenets of Christianity.

In a post Eghan put on Instagram, he premised his claim on  some shocking statistics he  stumbled on somewhere. He said the statistics  revealed that the the popular TV show includes 865 deaths, 17 rapes (including attempted ones) and 144 scenes of naked people (with 83.7% being women). 

Eghan pointed out in 2016, the show was in a legal battle with a porn website, Porn Hub, for using their explicit clips as it is a breach of copyright of HBO.

According to him, Game of Thrones preaches immorality by bringing out the fact that a lot of porn stars like Jessica Jenson and Samantha Bentley were used in the production of the show.

The young pastor ended the post by admonishing the massive fans of the American fantasy drama TV.

The concluding part of the post read: “Dear Christian and Game of Thrones fan, is this the kind of content you want to fill your mind with? What happened to Philippians 4:8? Is this the kind of things you want your daughter or son to engage in? Rape, murder, and immorality?

“If you’re so attached to Game of Thrones that you’re getting angry with me, then who are you worshipping? GOD or GOT? One letter makes a big difference. And that one letter change can make a big difference when you stand before GOD on that day” he concludedcx
