Afro pop artiste Maryokun Has said he's currently not in any relationship eventhough many of the girls thinks he's dating them. Says 'but I'm single'.

The DMW signed artiste made this pronouncement while speaking with Hip TV. It might be that the young man is trying not to disclose his relationship status to the public. Indeed it was a brain buster for all those chicks already feeling fly...


However, this is a critical issue with celebrities, many of them finds it hard to merge relationship and stardom, it has really become a norm in the Nigerian Music Industry, to have baby mama's and not wife, or baby maker. Except for some matured ones amongst them.

The Reality TV show that has gotten everyone's attention should be coming to an end, the headache now is who is going home with the big prize? as far the winner is concerned, focus is not really on the ladies Cee-c, Nina, and Alex, We think the Chase for the prize is in between that Yoruba boy Tobi and Miracle, Sincerely these guys have been fantastic since the beginning of the the show.

Nevertheless, there's no man born with perfection, meaning all men are bound to make mistakes. At a point in the show these guys had their flaws but were able to overturn it which has seen them and the 3 others through to these grand finale.

Big kudos to the standing 5

After #BBNaija Big Brother ends on Sunday, one of the housemates should be checked into a very good psychiatric home in South Africa for the next one year. If you know who, then I am right and you agree. If you don't know who, it means you should be the one to be checked in.

Nairabet CEO, Akin Alabi writes in his recent blog post that he has decided to run for a Political office in 2019, under the Umbrella of the All Progressive Congress(APC)


The blogger revealed this in one of his blog post dated 18th April, 2018, that he would be running for the post of a federal House of Representatives of his local government in Oyo State, Nigeria. According to him,  he is part of the 10selected to hustle for the primaries tickets in just few month to come.

However he seeks for popular opinion at the end of his post?

Read his post below


"I have decided to run for office in 2019. I am considering contesting for a seat in the Federal House of Representatives."
I am from Egbeda Local Government in Oyo state which means my Federal Constituency is Egbeda/Ona Ara Federal Constituency. I am a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Intra party activities have begun. About 10 of us have signified interest within the APC already. We will all jostle for the ticket at the primaries in a few months time.What do you think?
The deputy Senate President, Professor Ike Ekweremadu said the National Assembly which is the upper chamber of the legislative maybe shutdown in order to help President Mohammed Buhari's administration find solution to the killings by the Fulani Herdsmen and Military personnels in the country.

The Upper chamber of the Nigerian National Assembly, also talks hard on the implications of insecurity in the country which would definitely discourage foreign investors aside loss of lives and properties, if it continues.



The plenary which was headed by Ekweremadu on Tuesday, made him speak while ruling a motion moved by Representative Nasarawa South, Senator Suleiman Adokwe over the unending killings by the herdsmen in his senatorial district.


Senator Adokwe said while addressing the house, 


“Throughout the weekend to this moment, herdsmen have unleashed mayhem on the people of my senatorial district, leaving many dead bodies, numerous injured persons and hundreds of thousands of internally displaced persons.
 The victims are largely the Tiv speaking ethnic nationalities, with a reported dead toll of 32 persons, and we are still counting.”The attacks  was described by the senator as “a well -coordinated and simultaneous carnage” across Awe, Obi, Keana and Doma Local Government areas of the southern senatorial district.
“The tragedy is that for four days running, this mayhem has continued unhindered, unchecked, unstopped by any arm of the law and security enforcement agencies.
“Indeed, right under the nose of the armed forces and the police, this killing is sustained by sheer negligence or refusal to act by the security agencies. It is very sad that in Nigeria, with all the security forces, a whole senatorial district will go on being punished by militia and no action coming from government,” Adokwe said.
The Law makes it clear that issue of security now in Nigeria is not just the responsibility of the Armed Forces but all man for himself. Says this while addressing the house .

TV host and Blogger Emma Ugolee gave reasons why Wizkid, Davido and Olamide are the best music acts in Nigeria of today, following the footsteps of their predecessors King sunny Ade, Pasuma Obesere and lots of other relevant legendary acts that mainly from southwest.

According to Emma, He said the Trios outstanding performances in the Music Industry is mainly because of the support they get from southwest region, which is rubbing off bit by bit on other regions in Nigeria.


However, the success of these act is undeniably due to their consistency, hard work and structure on which they glide on.

Music business Network Ng replied Mr Emma's post:...

  • musicbusinessnetworkng@emmaugolee Nice perspective. Although the idea that the Southwest support their artistes is only one side of the truth behind the phenomenon you have described. By nature, the language of expression will automatically determine the audience or consumer community. So it's natural also that a language community will embrace musical content in their primary/mother language first. Coincidentally, Lagos State is a Yoruba state and at the same time the nerve centre of the culture/entertainment industries in Nigeria; it therefore seems that Yoruba language especially in the music industry has become the unofficial language of transaction/legitimization as far as the commodification of music is concerned. In terms of the language of expression and community connection, look at the renaissance going on with the use of indigenous language among Afro hip-hop artistes, Phyno and Flavour now have huge market and followership from East just as much as Olamide does in the Southwest. The other side is a much deeper one with roots that are steep in cultural consumption and appreciation for music as an integral aspect of socialisation among the Yoruba speaking people. This means that beyond the normal model of music consumption that is established in the "music industry" i.e. CD sales, download, streaming, live, publishing etc; there is a submodel of social music consumption popularly known as "owambe" that is well pronounced among the Yorubas and historically enculturated in their societal/traditional fabric. This particular aspect influenced the musical careers of artistes like Sunny Ade, Ebenezer Obey, Wasiu Ayinde and loads of others to mention a few. It is this culture that the new generation artistes of southwest origin are also benefitting from. I believe this cultural trait and other factors are responsible for this perception not just about the Southwest "supporting" their own for the sake of supporting, or artiste from one region working harder than others. I always enjoy your thoughts...
