Davido Stole Gobe Song From Singer Password, Paid Him N500,000 After Copyright Claim



Davido Stole Gobe Song From Singer Password, Paid Him N500,000 After Copyright Claim…..

Days after the release of Davido’s new music titled Gobe, we learnt he allegedly bought the original version of the song from an upcoming Nigerian singer nick-named Password after he threatened him with a lawsuit.

Gobe was initially released by Password back in July 2011 but didn’t make a hit.

According to insiders, Password was the writer of the first version of the now popular Gobe song. He sold it to David Adeleke for close to 500 thousand naira.

“The Dude sold the song to Davido. He produced and wrote it, all of a sudden they are saying Shizzi produced it’, a studio rat and close friend to Password” said an anonymous source.

The singers are very open about this issue in their tweets.

Below is a couple of back and forth tweets between the two.

“Big ups 2 @iamshizzi and @iam_password for such a great combination of work for GOBE! Morestuff 2 come HKN!“- Davido tweeted this today

“Follow my gud friend @iam_password and thanx to him and d inspiration we all put into gobe! Cc”@iam_Davido.” – said HKN producer via Twitter this afternoon

Another twist to the story is that singer Password is claiming that the account iam_password is fake. He still claims Davido stole his original song.

Below are few of his tweets via Twitter handle GobePassword made on Tuesday February 26.

Password Gobe ‏@GobePassword: I’m out, point made . . .

Typical Nigeria, Nobody believes the victim

When Davido has proof that we made a deal, he should tweet at me. bloody coward
I’m out

My song got stolen, simple as that, hook, beat, everything . . no shame

I know many will not believe me, Davido is the superstar, so he’s right . . i only opened this account to expose his lies, believe or not

@dapoolutope Let @iam_davido upload pictures of where we had a deal together

@i_Spillz_ Please what do you mean? I am the victim here, i am just joining twitter today, because my friends told me my song was stolen

You claim we had a deal to re do my track? @iam_davido and @iam_shizzi, please where is the proof? why did you steal my song?

I produced my track Gobe myself

This user —> @Iam_password is a fake account

@iam_davido Why will you steal my song, and claim that i sold it to you? have we ever met before?

Just joining twitter today because i started getting calls from people that know me that i sold my song “Gobe” dat dropped in 2011 to Davido

This is theft of intellectual property

I did not do any deal with @iam_davido and @iam_shizzi, My MGT will press charges!

I am the real owner of the Gobe track.



From the look of things, Davido might have paid Password on Wednesday February 27 hence his silence on Twitter.

My Boyfriend Still Thinks I’m A Virgin



I am a 22-year-old university student. I came to university with my virginity intact.
After being here for a few months, I am no longer a virgin and I have had sex with three different guys, none of them I can call my boyfriend. I have a boyfriend. He is five years older than I am. We were both Christians. We kissed but never had sex. I can no longer consider myself a Christian. Whenever he calls me, I don’t know what to talk to him about because I feel so guilty. I told him he should forget me because I have changed, but I didn’t tell how I have.
My roommate got me into drinking and having sex with guys. One weekend my roommate had sex with two different guys. We talked about it. Sometimes she goes to the guys’ room and have sex with them. I love her because she is good to me. I suffer from premenstrual pain and she helps me during my time of the month. Sometimes I think she has made me a very bad girl.

My boyfriend still thinks I am a virgin. Should I still tell him I am not and he should take his mind off me?

Nokia unveils £13 phone that only needs to be charged once a month


Nokia has unveiled a simple £13 mobile phone that can last for 35 days on a single charge. It is aimed at emerging markets where electricity is rare, but could also be sold as a back-up phone.

The Nokia 105, which is set to go on sale within weeks, has a colour screen, built-in torch and an FM radio.

It’s now the cheapest phone in the Finnish firm’s range, and was hailed as ‘the ultimate festival phone’ at its launch.

A spokesman for Nokia said: ‘The phone was created to offer the essentials – phone calls and SMS – but also some desirable extras.

Nokia’s experience in optimizing phone quality, combined with its global footprint and economies of scale, is a major contributor to being able to work to such a low price.’

The firm also used the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to launch three other low-cost devices, including a £120 smartphone, the Lumia 520.

Experts predict this will be a big year for cheap smartphones, as firms try to attract customers in the developing world.

The smartphone, which operates with Windows 8, could be perfect for colder countries with its super-sensitive touch-screen technology, meaning it can be used while wearing gloves, the firm said.

But with experts predicting a big year for cheap smartphones as developers try to make inroads into the developing world, the Lumia 520 could be seen in India or Africa more than Scandinavia.

The phone also comes with a 5-megapixel camera and access to the music streaming service Nokia Music.

Those two phones were launched alongside the Lumia 720, which Nokia is pitching at ‘socialites’, and the £56 ‘candybar’-style 301.

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop told the press : ‘Today we’re introducing the world’s most innovative portfolio of products.

‘For Nokia the building blocks are in place and now we have to make sure that all of this capability, all of this beauty in design, everything that we have done in terms of great product making is put into the hands of consumers and that’s what we’re focused on today.’

Samsung will unveil the next generation of its Galaxy smartphone in New York City next month. It comes after Apple overtook Samsung as the top mobile phone seller in the US in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Kanye and Kim put their home up for sale?





About a month ago, it was reported that parents-to-be Kim and Kanye plunked down $11 million for a 10,000-square-foot Bel Air mansion.

Now it’s being reported that the new Italian style home has been quietly put back on the market. That is according to The Real Estate Stalker.
Property records do indeed now reveal that in late January 2013 the couple – or at least Miss Kardashian through the same trust connected her former faux-Tuscan in the Bev Hills P.O.—coughed up an undisclosed amount of moolah for the big ol’ Bel Air Crest crib in question that sits on three-quarters of an acre with scenic canyon and city views and was last listed with a $10,750,000 price tag.
However, don’t count on K.K and Kanye to gut or expand the five bedroom and 6.5 bathroom mock-Med McMansion, as was previously reported they planned to do. In fact, don’t even count on them moving into the damn house because, according to Patty, they are already in escrow to flip the pricey pad for about a million bucks more than the still unknown amount they paid for the place just three weeks ago.

Basket mouth gets new custom made Insignia car



Bright Okpocha, popularly known as Basketmouth has just taken delivery of the 2013 Opel Insignia car. I heard from a close source to the comedian that it’s a bespoke car, meaning that everything was built to Basketmouth’s specification.

The car is actually not sold at any showroom in the world…you can only order it. And Basketmouth’s car I hear, is the only one that has been ordered in Africa.

That means no one else has this car in Africa. The car sells for about 42 thousand pounds.

Google’s Smart Glasses Will Go On Sale This Year For $1,500



Google glasses will be available to purchase by the end of the year for less than $1,500, according to reports. The company’s long-awaited tech toy, officially called ‘Google Glass’ is a voice-activated device designed to be worn like a pair of spectacles.

Google just revealed new details this week on how they function as a number of employees have been spotted wearing them. The company is trying to fine-tune the design of the gadget before officially releasing it to the market, the tech website The Verge reported.
The glasses allow wearers to see sat-nav directions, take pictures and reply to emails – but until this week Google has refused to show how they actually work.
“Want to see how Glass actually feels? It’s surprisingly simple,” Google said.



Say “take a picture” to take a picture. Record what you see, hands free. Even share what you see, live. Directions are right in front of you.
“Speak to send a message, or translate your voice. Get the notifications that matter most.
“Ask whatever’s on your mind and get answers without having to ask.”
The firm also said all of the footage was captured through Glass.
Project Glass will come in five colours – black, gray, blue, red or white and have removable shades.
The company is negotiating with Warby Parker, an e-commerce start-up company that sells trendy eyeglasses, to help it design more fashionable frames, according to the New York Times.
Google also detailed how the first people to get hold of them.
Potential ‘Explorer’ early-adopters will have to apply in 50 words or less, including a short video (15 seconds max) and five photographs, to explain what they would do with the early version of Glass.
They will then have to order a $1,500 Project Glass ‘Explorer’ kit and attend the pick up in New York, LA or San Francisco in person.
‘We’re looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass,’ the firm said.
‘We’d love to make everyone an Explorer, but we’re starting off a bit smaller.
‘We’re still in the early stages, and while we can’t promise everything will be perfect, we can promise it will be exciting.’

Nigerian ‘Yahoo Boy’ on FBI’s Most Wanted List Apprehended in Australia



He owned a hip hop record label and he lived the high life of luxury hotels, gambling, strippers and bling. But behind the glitz and the glamour Tobechi Enyinna Onwuhara was one of the FBI’s most wanted men, allegedly a fraudster who scammed at least $44 million through cyber crimes.


But the sophisticated con artist, who fled Florida in August 2008 amid an intense FBI investigation, has been caught in Sydney and sent back to the US to face a string of fraud charges.

Nigerian-born Tobechi Onwuhara, 33, was “provisionally arrested in response to a request from the United States Government” in December last year, according to a spokeswoman for the Australian Attorney-General’s department.

Mr Onwuhara is to face prosecution in the US for fraud related offences, including identity fraud and computer fraud, the spokeswoman said.

“On January 29, the Minister for Justice [Jason Clare] made a determination to surrender Mr Onwuhara to the US.

“As a matter of long standing practice, the Australian government does not comment on operational matters,” she said.

Fairfax Media understands Mr Onwuhara had been living it up in Sydney after disappearing in August 2008.

The FBI’s website now lists Mr Onwuhara as captured, but with scant detail of the arrest. They were offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

The source who tipped off Fairfax said Mr Onwuhara had been making regular trips to The Star casino as well as splashing cash at numerous popular nightclubs.

“He would bet at the Star under a different name, he was a regular, then one day he just disappeared and someone told us he wanted by the FBI,” a source said.

A spokeswoman for Echo entertainment, owner of The Star, did not return calls and emails. The US Consulate in Sydney also did not return calls.

An Australian Federal Police spokesman confirmed the AFP arrested Mr Onwuhara.

According to the FBI’s most wanted list Mr Onwuhara is wanted for his alleged involvement in an elaborate scheme that defrauded the financial industry out of tens of millions of dollars.

“Onwuhara is a key member of a group of Nigerians who allegedly have been conducting fraudulent banking activities from Florida and Texas, since 2005,” the FBI’s most wanted website states.

“It is alleged that the group has been using online internet databases to steal victims’ identities.

“Once acquired, they allegedly use the victims’ information to gain access to the victims’ ‘Home Equity Line of Credit’ accounts and wire transfer the money to accounts mainly located overseas, some in the United States.”

Some of Onwuhara’s alleged co-conspirators have been arrested, inside and outside of the United States, the FBI’s website states.

Onwuhara was charged federally with conspiracy to commit bank fraud, and a federal warrant was issued for his arrest by the US District Court, Eastern District of Virginia, on August 1, 2008.

Late Nigerian Singer Goldie Susan Harvey’s Final Moments



You’ve heard that phrase before, “Live every moment as if it was your last.” In this season, as we remember singer, Goldie Harvey who passed on last week, it now more than ever before bears repetition. If the ‘Touch my body” singer knew that she was nearing the end of her days on earth, would she have done things differently? It’s quite difficult to say; because the dead don’t talk. But as we go through the last days of Goldie Harvey, perhaps you can answer that question for yourself.

Goldie Harvey’s final event

The last event Goldie Harvey officially attended was the 55th Grammy awards in Los Angeles. The singer is said to have arrived the event in the company of Kenny Ogungbe, Founder of Kennis Music and Nollywood actor cum politician, Richard Mofe Damijo on February 12.

However, because there were no photos taken in the actual hall or on the actual red carpet at the grammy awards, many believe that the bunch could not get into the venue. Until Goldie’s passing on, social media was awash with mix feelings about her leopard skin dress as well as her pose on the streets of Los Angeles and not at the Grammies. There’s an event we are sure she actually attended; a pre-Grammy party with American Musicians Ciara, and Chaka Khan on February 8th.

Goldie Harvey’s last words

It’s quite difficult to decipher what Goldie’s last words were, but her last tweet is one to remember. On February 13, few hours before she passed on, Goldie tweeted on her personal twitter page, OLUWAG?LDIE ?@GoldieHarvey: “A season of abstinence enhances creativity, inner strength and major answers to prayer…?”

Goldie did her last photo shoot with her very close and equally controversial friend, Denrele Edun for SIMS magazine. Goldie looked Goddess-like in a black dress and magnificent make up for the shoot. Derenle was one of the last people who saw her alive.

Goldie Harvey’s Last Interview

Goldie’s last known official interview was with an online station, Ibakatv in November 2012. In the five minute chat, the singer spotting a revealing gold dress opened up about her growing up, education, likes and dislikes and her experience in the Big Brother House. When asked about her beauty tips, Goldie said: “Surround yourself with happy people who will make you happy, because if you’re miserable, you’ll always feel ugly.”

The smile seemed to disappear from her face when asked about alleged visits between herself and Prezzo. “It’s my personal life” she said, “it’s my business and how I choose to live my life is no one’s business.” Ironically, Goldie though playfully, mentioned death in that interview. Her words: “I hate cockroaches, if I see a cockroach here, I could just take off my clothes and just die.”

Goldie Harvey’s Last Scandal

“What was Goldie’s last scandal?” This is one question that we will be trying to answer for years to come. Just when we thought that the BBA drama with Prezzo would last us a lifetime, Goldie passed on mysteriously with a lot of hullaballoo as to the cause of her death.

Then came Andrew Harvey with the wedding pictures. Before we could recover to take a breather, Ifeoma Harvey who claims to have been Goldie’s best friend says the deceased star snatched her husband, Andrew who is seriously ill in a hospital in Malaysia.

Whether friend or family, fan or foe, the Goldie Harvey situation sure makes you wonder: “What if today was my last day on earth?”

Kanye West Disses JT & Jay-Z Not a 'Suit & Tie' Fan



anye West fired off another patented rant last night during his show in London ... but this time he took a shot at his rap BFF ... Jay-Z. Kanye's white noise rambling included the usual suspects ... corporations, the Grammys, and so on. But then the father-to-be let it be known he was not a fan of Jigga's new song with Justin Timberlake, saying, "I got love for Hov, but I ain't f--king with that 'Suit & Tie.'"Jay and Justin have been performing the song all over the place lately, including at the Grammys two weeks ago.Perhaps someone is just a little jealous.

8 Year-Old Boy Marries in Zimbabwe



Year-Old Boy Marries 61-Year-Old Woman in Zimbabwe ....the boy's aunt, Patience Masilela (46), explained why the wedding took place.
She said: "The boy was named after his late grandfather who never had a white wedding, so the ancestors told the boy to get married and he chose Helen to be his bride. The family took his desire to get married very seriously. They paid for the bride in March last year and spent a lot on the wedding because they believed it was what the ancestors wanted."...what do u make of this???

Mother Who Buried Child Alive In Osogbo Osun State Jailed For 6 Years



A Magistrate’s Court sitting in Osogbo, Osun state has sentenced a girl of 18 to six years imprisonment with hard labour for burying her only child alive.

In her verdict, presiding Magistrate, Mr Olusola Aluko, held that the convict, simply identified as Mrs Adeola Joseph does not deserve to be in the midst of human beings, as she looked untroubled for her criminal act. She said that “the convict is callous and may not change from her devilish act.”

Mrs Joseph was said to have buried her only child, Fatia Nafiu, alive in her residence located at Ijetu area of Osogbo.

According to the Police Prosecutor, Mr Solomon Oladele, the convict, Mrs Joseph, buried her child in the early hours of Monday, February 18, 2012 and the child was rescued after two days by a Good Samaritan, Prophetess Tunrayo Akinwande, who lives in the area.

He said the timely intervention of Prophetess Akinwande and other residents of the area, who exhumed Fatia from the grave and took her to the hospital, saved the two-year old innocent child who was still alive after two days in the grave.

Oladele maintained that the convict had, through her actions, committed an offence contrary to and punishable under Sections 320 (1) and 509 of the Criminal Code, Cap 34, vol 11, Laws of Osun State of Nigeria, 2003.

The convict, who was arraigned on a three-count charge of attempted murder, felony and breach of peace, pleaded the court for leniency.

The convict claimed that her parents were not favourably disposed to her marriage with the father of her child and had since been living alone without assistance from any individual, a development, which prompted her to terminate the life of the baby.

Also, the convict told the court that she decided to kill the baby due to her decision to relocate to Lagos in search of job and could not bear the responsibilities of nursing a child while trying to find her feet.

Nigerian Singer Paul Play Dairo Sues MTN For N500 Million Over Project Fame



In what may very well be the first major copyright infringement lawsuit in modern time in Nigeria, pop singer Paul play Dairo has gone to court for redress over the unlawful use of hit song “Angel of My Life” on MTN sponsored Project Fame.

We gathered that Paul, through his lawyer, Festus Keyamo, is slamming a N500 million suit on telecoms giant MTN and Ultima Studios, the producer of the music talent hunt show, Project Fame.

According to the singer, he was out of the country and in the United States last year when the song was used without proper licensing. His Intellectual Property manager, Ayo Rotimi was also said not to have been contacted by the show producers before the song was used and broadcast.

Paul’s management, we learnt contacted the two organisations and their responses were “cold and uncooperative”. This makes them to contact Festus Keyamo Chambers who has filed a lawsuit against both organisations, and they are said to be determined to see the case to its logical conclusion.

The representatives of both MTN and Ultima Studios could not be contacted as at press time.

“It is very sad to notice that even international companies in the calibre of MTN who have benefited enormously in the Nigerian economy is found wanting in unlawful exploitation of intellectual property. This is inappropriate and should be addressed,” a concerned industry analyst said

Lagos Governor Fashola Paid $500,000 For Kim Kardashian’s Visit To Nigeria



The Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola blew a whooping $500,000 on “appearance fee” for a one time American porn-star cum reality television personality, Kim Kardashian.

Yemojanews learnt that the extra budgetary largesse excluded first class tickets for her and the crew, accommodation, logistics, security etc.

Despite staying less than a day in the city of Lagos the pregnant star was paid a reported $500,000 for her fleeting visit, angering some commentators and citizens of the state.

Kim’s visit to Nigeria, unfortunately coincided with the kidnapping of seven foreigners, including one Briton, by armed men in the northern part of the country. An Islamist group later claimed responsibility.

The mother-to-be, who is presently engaged to rapstar, Kanye West was in Lagos to ‘co-host’ the ‘Love Like A Movie’ event with African R’n’B crooner, Darey Art-Alade, for which tickets cost N100,000, or $640.

But according to local reports, Kim stayed at the event for 45 minutes, making a 45-second statement on the microphone.

Independent Nigerian TV station, Channels Television reported: ‘There were disappointments after Kim Kardashian came on stage for only 40 seconds.’

The channel posted pictures of the smiling star wearing a black leather dress, posing alongside the performers including 2Face, Waje, Banky W,Ice Prince, Mo’Eazy and Zaina.

Guardian blogger Jeremy Weate described how Kim’s visit was an example of the country’s economic elite ‘blowing its money on bling puffery while most of the country suffers’.

He wrote: ‘Ms Kardashian appeared, said, “Hey Naija” and vamoosed.

The rumour was that she’d been paid USD 500,000  for the honour of mixing with the petro- class.’ Commentators in the country made reference to Kim’s infamous sex tape as they queried why a woman of dubious ‘moral rating’ should be in the country at all.

This Day newspaper’s Eddy Odivwri wrote: ‘Many families are not exactly comfortable with her lifestyle, as she hardly cuts the image of a role model to a generation in need of a moral dress up.’

‘Kim was criticised for her brief marriage to Kris Humphries, with Charles Mgbolu for AllAfrica writing: ‘It is uncertain how much Kim is loved in Nigeria as she fell sour to a lot of her fans after her divorce with former hubby Kris Humphries in a marriage that lasted barely 72 days.’

And it wasn’t just in Nigeria that eyebrows were raised, with Ghana based site GhanaCelebrities.com  writing: ‘My questions is; what is wrong with us Africans? ‘When did Kim Kardashian become so good at hosting that she has to be paid thousands of dollars and be brought to Nigeria to handle a concert?’ Kim seemed oblivious to the controversy, however, as she left on an Air France flight.

Looking tired she was later pictured arriving in Los Angeles, her bump hidden beneath a simple white shirt which she teamed with black trousers.

But she did manage a smile for the cameras, perhaps glad to be home.
The 32-year-old tweeted: ‘Just landed back home! 20 hrs of flying. No big deal.’

Rihanna 25th Bday with Chris Brown ... and TINY BIKINI

Ja Rule Released from Prison ... Kinda



Ja Rule ... aka inmate #07608730Q ... is finally out of prison, roughly 21 months after being locked up on gun charges ... but he's not exactly a free man yet. Rule had been locked up at the Mid-State Correctional Facility in New York since June 2011 -- where he was in protective custody due to his celebrity status. Rule was serving a 2-year sentence stemming from a gun conviction. But he's not out of the woods yet ... 'cause Rule still has time to serve on the 28-month sentence he was ordered to serve stemming from a federal tax evasion conviction.Officials say Rule was escorted out of the prison early Thursday morning by U.S. Marshals ... and is still in custody ... but it's unclear where he'll serve out the remainder of his time.  Rule's lawyer says the rapper might have less than 6 months left on his sentence ... and could be eligible for a halfway house. There's also a chance he could land in federal prison ... but some of those are like country clubs. Either way ... probably better than the Mid-State Correctional Facility.

How Varsity Student Was Killed During Cult Initiation ~ Police



The Bayelsa State police command yesterday announced the killing of a 200- level student of petro chemical engineering of Niger Delta University, Ammassoma, Mr. Tariebi Tyger, during a forceful initiation exercise by some unidentified cult
group.

According to the police, the 21 years old undergraduate was wooed by the cultists but he turned them down. He was later forcefully taken from his hostel on the 15th of December and an initiation exercise done.

The police public relations officer, Mr. Fidelis Odunna, told LEADERSHIP that though the police had arrested persons suspected to have taken part in the murder, it gathered that the victim passed out during the heavy beating meted out during the initiation and died.

“They forcefully took the boy from his hostel to initiate him into a cult and in the process, the boy passed out. They threw his corpse into the river. We are going to arraign them very soon”, he said.

LEADERSHIP gathered that the deceased was the son of a police officer in the state.

The grandfather of the deceased, Mr. Lucky Daniel, told our correspondent in Yenagoa that Tyger was abducted from his hostel at Amasoma in Southern Ijaw local government area by some suspected cultists.

He said Tyger was bundled to a house in Otuan on December 15, 2012 where he was murdered by the cultists who later threw his corpse into the river.

“The cult group gruesomely murdered him, tied his legs with block sinkers and threw it into the river”, he said.

He said his parents suspected a foul play few days after Tyger left them in Yenagoa on December 10 to resume his studies in the university.

He said that efforts by his parents to reach the 21 years old undergraduate on his telephone proved abortive forcing them to begin a search operation.

“His parents became worried and swung into action to locate him in his hostel accommodation. To their chagrin and utmost disappointment, they observed that the door of his room was broken but he was nowhere to be found.

“In their frantic efforts to locate their missing son, the parents contacted his erstwhile room mate who was his closest associate at the time. He joined the parents as a sympathiser in the search”, he said.

Daniel who identified himself as the maternal grandfather of the deceased said the matter was later reported to the police

Snoop Dogg Owes Over $546,000 In Unpaid Taxes



Whether Snoop Dogg is a Lion, Rastafarian or reincarnated, he is still Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. to the Internal Revenue Service. On February 8th, the IRS hit Snoop D-O-double-G with a tax lien claiming the rapper owes $546,270.29 in unpaid back taxes according to documents obtained by TMZ.

The documents claim the ”Gin & Juice” MC owes $101, 952.44 in unpaid taxes for 2009 and $444,317.85 in 2011. One possible reason for Snoop’s back rent could be him paying back another tax lien from the IRS back in 2011 for roughly $467,000 in back taxes dating back to 2008.

Forbes reports that Snoop Dogg raked in $14 million in 2011 and $11 million in 2009 while recently only pulling in $8 million in 2012. With a new documentary arriving on March 15th and his 12th studio album expecting a Spring release(with the DVD of the documentary) it looks like Snoop’s lucrative 2013 could partially go to Uncle Sam.

RIHANNA: INJURED IN BOTTLE ATTACK!



She wasn’t badly injured, Gaga style, but Rihanna suffered a gash on her knee while partying in London the other night, and a bottle-throwing goon may be to blame.

Rihanna, who was in town for London Fashion Week, was hurt when someone threw a bottle in the star’s direction and screamed things at her about Chris Brown.

She was departing a club called The Box when someone threw a bottle of Lucozade (a UK energy drink) in her direction. The bottle itself didn’t connect, fortunately.

Rihanna scraped her knee during the commotion, however, when she looked to hasten her getaway from the scene and brushed up against a metal grate.

Her boyfriend(s) know a thing or two about flying bottles.

Speaking of, it was an interesting week for Rihanna and Chris Brown, to say the least. After their Grammy Awards love-fest, they appeared to be back on and stronger than ever.

Or … not so fast. The music stars shunned one another just three nights later at Hollywood hot spot Playhouse… after which Chris was threatened by a gang member.

Thug life.

WIZKID AND BANKY W EXCHANGED WORDS ON TWITTER + WIZKID SNUBBED AT BANKY W'S CONCERT

So,last night,I was at Banky W's love concert at the Civic center Victoria Island in Lagos. Wizkid was apparently on the list of performers and everyone looked forward to confirming if reports of his split from Banky were true or false.
From what transpired ...excluding  Wizkid's noticeable absence on Banky's album,setting up his own record label,and occasional suggestive tweets,the star boy & RnB boss's relationship seems to have broken down irretrievably

Despite all these,about 3 hours after Banky W's concert commenced,in order to pay homage to his soon to be ex-boss Wizkid who flew in from London ,quietly breezed in with his girlfriend,manager and Body guard.He went and sat at the far end of the hall.Unless for few whispers and grunts from ladies who were annoyed our star boy had finally settled down, and guys who were dazzled by his bling bling and swag, he went almost unnoticed.No recognition from Banky W or Seyi Law who doubled as host/comedian..he didn't interact with Skales who was sitting in front with his own girlfriend like a boss.lol 
So after about 45 minutes,he stood up and walked out hand in hand with his girlfriend..you could tell from the atmosphere that it was over...
So i wasn't surprised to hear they had a word battle on twitter....sadly they were deleted before my screen grabber could work..lol..





In other news,Wizkid is madly inlove with this lady.Like he was allover her,if you know what I mean..too bad i couldnt take a picture from where I was seated.whew!

Ofiicial Statement From Kenis Music…. R.I.P GOLDIE !!!

Statement from the CEO of Kennis Music:

“On behalf of Kennis Music, I’m sad to officially confirm the shocking and untimely passage of Nigeria’s pop star, Goldie Harvey. With a deep sense of loss, we announce the shocking death of our darling music star, Goldie Harvey. Goldie, 31, died on Thursday after she complained of a severe headache at her Park View residence shortly after her arrival from the United States where she went to witness the Grammy Award. She was rushed to her official hospital, Reddington, Victoria Island, Lagos, where doctors pronounced her dead on arrival.
We consider this period a gloomy moment for us and the entire Nigerian music industry in view of the circumstance Goldie passed away, the abundance of talent she has exhibited in her but eventful music career and the various opportunities her trip to the United States of America would have availed her. She is survived by her father, step- mother, brothers and sisters. We deeply sympathize with her family and fans all over the world and very grateful to all and sundry, especially, the vibrant Nigerian media for their concern and prompt reportage. We shall keep everybody informed as events unfold as we are still devastated by the sudden loss.” Meanwhile, the remains of Goldie, who hails from Ekiti State has been deposited in the mortuary of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, Lagos. Goldie represented Nigeria at the Big Brother Star Game in 2012. Her latest effort, she described as three nawti singles from her forthcoming African Invasion album are “Skibo”. “Miliki” and ” Got To Have It,” are presently enjoying heavy rotations on radio and TV stations across the continent. Burial arrangements will be announced by the family. May her soul rest in peace.
