Nigerian Or British? The Issue Of The Nationality Of Woolwich Terror Killers Michael Adebolajo & Michael Adebowale

killers-Comp_415909c

You probably heard about the heinous terror attack 2 days ago in the Woolwich area of London, which saw a white British Soldier Lee Rigby stabbed by two black men, who allegedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” as they stabbed him.

The nationalities of the men in their 20s are being touted in mainstream UK press and social media as British-Nigerian.

I’m just wondering, there were a lot of British born athletes of Nigerian descent that did extremely well at the London 2012 Olympic Games, not for one day did the British press label them as “British-Nigerian”, Even Tinie Temah whose parents are Igbo is always referred to as British in the UK media, na we Naija dey always claim him as Naija-British.

So why all of a sudden have these monsters Michael Adebolajo & Michael Adebowale who are as British as the Queen of England all of a sudden Nigerian? What gives?!

As someone said on facebook it is being made to seem like Nigeria has shown itself again” in the action of that British boy who beheaded a soldier.

Do You Think It’s Right For The Killers To Be Labelled As Nigerian?

And they call each other Skittles & Space…

A few hours ago the “couple” took to twitter to profess their love to each other. Pretty much confirming months of speculation about the nature of their relationship. Read their tweets below:

Niyola-Crazy-+-Toh-Bad-Single-Cover-583x600

Here are two brand new singles from EME’s first lady Niyola. Crazy is a mid-tempo tune easy to vibe too; while the love song Toh Bad shows a different side to Niyola’s music. I’d personally love to hear something showcasing more of her vocal range, but I’ll definitely be bumping these new tracks. Listen below.

tiwa-savage-once-upon-a-time-officialalbumart_that1960chickdotcom

A few moments ago the official album cover design for Tiwa Savage‘s highly anticipated debut album was revelaed. The album called Once Upon A Time features a clean design with Miss Savage’s gorgeous face staring intently back at you, one can almost hear her saying “buy me, buy me” Just joking…

But yes! I love the design, and this is one album I have been looking forward to for sometime now, can’t wait to hear it. The album art is also part of the invite to an exclusive album listening party which is going down sometime this week in Lagos, where a privileged few will get to listen to the album in it’s entirety before it is released to the not so privileged masses. LOL.

I am still waiting for my invite…did it get lost in the post?

ARE YOU FEELING THE ALBUM DESIGN FOR TIWA’S ONCE UPON A TIME?

SeyiShayIro&Buba_that1960chickdotcom

Singer Seyi Shay dropped some promo pics yesterday, reason unknown, but it could have something to do with her new video Iranwo that might be dropping soon.

Anyways in some of the pics she is rocking iro and buba in a very interesting way, with a lilac gele, cream lace top and a very sheer iro. Me likes this look but I don’t know how appropriate it would be for an owambe function especially with all the older uncles and aunties around that can’t stay out of young people’s business LOL!

Ladies would you rock this?
