Shan George Wants EFCC To Probe Her Nollywood Colleagues Over GEJ’s $200 Million Donation To The Industry

Shan-George

Actress Shan George wants The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to investigate the key members of Nollywood industry who benefited from the $200 Million largesse by former president Goodluck Jonathan. This comes after The Bank of Industry (BoI) denied receiving the $200 million Entertainment/Nollywood Fund from the former administration, for the development of Nigeria’s entertainment industry.

The bank recently released a statement saying

The attention of the bank has been drawn to a news report titled “Probe Jonathan’s $200 million Nollywood Fund, Lari Williams tells Buhari” wherein Mr. Lari (actor Lari Williams) alluded to the domiciliation of $200 million with the Bank of Industry Limited for eventual disbursement to artists who are able to come up with viable business plans. BOI would like to state for the records that it is not managing any $200 million Entertainment/Nollywood Fund and at no time did the bank receive any such fund from the government for the Entertainment/Nollywood sector.

This publication became necessary as some practitioners in the creative industry believe that BOI is in receipt of $200 million Entertainment/Nollywood Fund.

Miley Cyrus Wants Us To Know Nicki Minaj Isn’t A Kind Person…Throws Serious Shade At Her Over MTV VMA Snub Rant


Miley Cyrus who is set to host the MTV VMA awards on Monday night may have just kicked off round 2 of the Twitter war of words between Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift.

Late last month Nicki got all in her feelings and played the “racism/my yansh is too big card” when her Anaconda video, wasn’t nominated for Video of The Year. Back then Minaj wrote in a Twitter rant

If I was a different ‘kind’ of artist, ‘Anaconda’ would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year as well. When the ‘other’ girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination. If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year.

Screen Shot 2015-08-27 at 17.52.52

Noted blogger, Linda Ikeji ruffled up some feathers with her latest blog post causing her to become the Number 1 trending topic on Naija Twitter today.

It all started this morning when a supposed married woman, Ngozi Angela tweeted at her ex – James Ndu, telling him she missed him. He replied saying he did not miss her, while pointing out that she is his married ex.

Linda Ikeji who was only doing her job, posted the twitter exchange between the two on her blog, which is when all hell broke loose, with many blasting her saying it was a personal issue that could put the married woman into trouble with her husband and in laws.

However the married woman herself came on Twitter after the story was published to say she did not see anything wrong with missing an ex who was supposedly still a “friend”

Sigh….however it did not end there…There is another twist to the story.
