Monday, 16 July 2018 12:37

We start today with a motivational quote from a Chinese teacher

 

BEFORE YOU ENGAGE ON A JOURNEY OF REVENGE ENSURE YOU DIG TWO GRAVES – CONFUCIUS  

 

BIRTHDAY SHOUT OUTS for today goes to Wizkid and C-kay

 

Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun (born 16 July 1990),  known professionally as Wizkid is a Nigerian singer and songwriter. In 2009, he signed a record deal with Banky W.'s record label Empire Mates Entertainment (E.M.E). He rose to prominence in 2010 with the release of the song "Holla at Your Boy" from his debut studio album, he has gone to become one of the biggest musicians to come out of Nigeria.

 

CKAY was born to Dr. & Mrs. Ekweani in Kaduna State, Chukwuka, Ekweani a.k.a Ckay is of Anambra state origin.

In 2014, Ckay relocated to Lagos and began working with Chocolate City Music as a production intern in early 2015, while there he worked at the studio until later in the same year he was signed Loopy Music which merged with Chocolate City when MI became the C.E.O. His production debut was “Third Mainland Bridge” which featured MI & Moti Cakes on the TICBN vol. 1 album. He was also featured by MI on “The box” with Pryse- Illegal Music 3.

 

With that out of the way here are the latest stories making the rounds in the world of entertainment.

 

Toke Makinwa is probably the happiest woman on earth at the moment after winning N7.5M placing a bet on France to win the 2018 World Cup.

 

The beautiful multi-talented media personality made this known on Sunday, July 15, 2018, on her Instagram page where she posted a video.

 

According to a visibly excited Toke while dancing and celebrating with friends revealed that she won $20,000 (N7.5M) after placing a bet on France to win the world cup. She went on to caption the video with a quote "Winners shuffle."

 

HUMBLE SMITH DENIES DATING TIWA SAVAGE

   “Those pictures which went viral online are mere pictures taken on the set of a recent video shoot for my new song, ‘Attracta’, featuring Tiwa Savage.

 

    “I’m not in any form of romantic relationship with her. I think this rumour came up because she has not taken such sensational or romantic picture with any other artiste apart from Wizkid; so I think that’s why the pictures went viral.

 

    You know bloggers always look for sensational stories to drive traffic on their blogs; that’s the reason they were suspicious and went ahead to write stories that I may be dating Tiwa Savage, but there’s nothing of such.”

 

WIZKIDS BABY MAMA

Mother of Wizkid’s second child, Binta Diamond has revealed that she would turn down a chance to give birth to another child for the singer.

One of her followers asked,”What if Wizkid wants a second baby with you?” and she responded with an emoji that suggests that she would turn down such request.

 

Another follower of hers asked “When last herself and her child met with Wizkid” and she was direct with her response which was “18 months ago.”

DAKORE/RMD

The actress who played the role of RMD sexy wife in new TV series, Castle said her husband gave her the green light before accepting the role.

“Since the beginning of my career, I have been selective of the kind of people I work with, and the kind of scripts I accept. It’s part of having the spirit of excellence. My passionate kiss with RMD comes with the job. I try as much as I can to steer away from such romantic roles, but I can’t keep steering and find myself totally out.

 

“However, my husband and I have an understanding. At the end of the day, I’m his wife; he is the one I go home to. He is the one I love. He is the father of my kids. RMD and I also have a connection; we have done such a movie before. We both understand duty call.”

 

 

 

GEORGE CLOONEY

George Clooney's one tough SOB -- he's continuing to walk on his own just days after being released from the hospital due to a nasty crash ... although he's clearly hurting.

 

GC slowly made his way off his private jet Sunday after it touched down in Rome, where he's reportedly set to resume filming for his new Hulu series "Catch-22." He's got a hell of a limp going, but the actor's fighting through the pain to get to where he's got to be.

 

 

 

HULK HOGAN

Hulk Hogan is back in the WWE's good graces three years after he was caught on tape using the n-word ... reclaiming his place in the wrestling organization's Hall of Fame.

 

WWE issued a statement Sunday, saying that after a 3-year suspension ... Hulk was being reinstated in their HOF. They go on to say that this second chance follows multiple apologies and volunteer work from Hulk ... this in the wake of his angry rant using the n-word, which was caught on his sex tape and leaked in 2015.

EFE ON PLATEAU STATE

Angered by the continous attacks, Efe shared on social media:

“The killings in Plateau State must stop… how can people go to bury their dead be killed too. “How much can we endure… that’s how the “Dogon Nahawa” killings have been forgotten?

“2019 is coming and we might repeat our mistakes again. I’m raging in anger right now. May God rest their souls? Amen”

 

 

 

WIZKID

In an Interview with BBC London, Wizkid spoke in contrary the belief that his goal is to penetrate the International music market.

According to him, he is not set out to musically to penetrate the international market but at the same time he loves and cares about his international fans.

DAVIDO WINS BET

It was the first time any Nigerian will receive the BET award on the main stage, with hundreds of celebrity audience cheering.

Davido used the opportunity to condole with D’banj, who lost his son yesterday, and he also urged more foreign stars to collaborate with Nigerians/Africans, calling out names like J.Cole and Migos

 

 

 

LOLA OKOYE CAR

”Well, I’m really I’m super excited. I can’t really even… I’m really shy, so don’t take my shyness for not being surprised. I’m surprised and really, really excited. I can’t believe it,” Lola Omotayo-Okoye said.

    When asked about what could have motivated her husband to suprise her, Lola said, ”all my hard work na, all these years. I deserve it (laughs happily). Peter, I love you every, very much. I’m so, so grateful for this… I’m shocked. Thank you so much, I really appreciate this”.

 

 

 

 

ANGELA OKORIE

“As a mother, you can do everything for your child but that doesn’t make you a father. I feel that the male-bashing on social media is too rampant these days.

The fact that you contribute 99% of things in the home does not make you the man of the house. God knows what He was doing when he created two genders. It takes two people to make a baby.

The fact that you are separated from your husband does not mean you should come online and call yourself a man. I’m not trying to throw shades at anyone; I’m just trying to be blunt.

 

 

SMALL DOCTOR/2MILLION

 

Adeyanju had written on Twitter, “So, some youths went to Aso Rock yesterday to see Buhari and collected ‘thanks for coming’, N2m each. Very soon, they will start telling us why it is good for Buhari to continue…”

    “I am not aware that the President gave anyone N2m. I was only invited to Aso Rock during the Ramadan period, which I honoured.

    Have you asked Sound Sultan or Kunle Afolayan and they said Buhari gave us N2m each. Well, I don’t know if they gave anyone but I didn’t collect such money.”“I have always worked hard and my hard work is paying off. I felt humbled and privileged meeting Mr. President. Looking at where I used to be, there has been a major turnaround in my life. Do you remember I was once a bus conductor?”

 

MIMI ORJIEKWE ACTRESS NO MONEY

    “I still have a lot to do as an actor and woman, though I am enjoying my life. If I had known better, I would have probably pursued a career in the oil and gas sector.

    I love acting but there is no money in it as much as in the oil sector. I have a lot of expenses; I have a baby, do charity, like to look good and have a family to support.

    For you to be able to do all these, you need to make a lot of money. Unfortunately, acting cannot give you much money.”

 

 

KUNLE AFOLAYON

    “By the way, I live my life, people tend to think that I am the richest Yoruba actor, but that is a lie. Nigerians assume a lot. I live in a rented apartment because I cannot afford to build one.

    When they see me buy a new car, they don’t know if I paid for the car in installments; instead, they call me a big boy. What type of big boy lives on N50,000 or N100,000 income per film as an actor?

    “I challenge any Nigerian actor that is living larger than life to state how they made their money because I am sure it is not from the movies they make. I am talking about both the English and Yoruba actors.

    If they like, they can say they make N5m per film, they cannot afford to build or buy a house at Lekki or Victoria Island or Ikoyi. It is impossible. They should call out mathematicians to figure it out. It is a lie.

    It is because they meet some influential people that give them businesses or they have side businesses. Since we do not all meet such people or make the kind of money they make through these people, we just have to be content with what we have.

    In my life, I have never seen an ‘educated illiterate’ country like Nigeria. Nigerians are very gullible when it comes to judging other people’s lifestyle since they do not know anything, they assume. Then social media came and it made things worse.”

 

 

NIPSEY HUSSLE BET

Nipsey Hussle unleashed a vicious slap on a man's face in the middle of an argument over where he could park his whip ... and it's all captured on video.

Check it out, the L.A. rapper's in the street outside the venue for Sunday night's 'BET Awards' when he gets into with another guy. We're told the issue was whether or not Nipsey could move some cones and drive through a restricted area.

Tempers flare, and after the guy smacks a traffic cone out of the hand of Nipsey's bodyguard ... Hussle unloads a hard right slap.

A law officer immediately grabs Nipsey to keep the fight from escalating ... and then he gets back in his car.

 

 

 

NIGERIAN RAPPER

A 15-year-old Nigerian boy identified as Jordan Gbolade Jaiyeola, has been stabbed to death in a fight after a birthday party at a community centre in east London.

Three teenage boys have been arrested on suspicion of murder and have been taken to separate police stations for questioning. The teenage drill rapper known locally as Jordan Douherty, was found with knife wounds and died at the scene.

“it was chaos out here last night” and described hearing friends of the victim screaming and sobbing.

 

She told the Press Association: “Around 9.20pm I heard a lot of noise going on. For some reason it didn’t sound right. It was mostly black boys out there.

“Then I heard a lad crying down the phone ‘he’s dead, he’s dead’. “He was lying down in the road, there was a lot of blood. The police were working on him, they tried their absolute damnedest with that boy last night.”
