New Music | Throw Away – Davido Feat. Shank & Wande Coal

If you’re looking to hear the regular upbeat tunes you normally expect from Davido this track is not it. Either way the trio of Davido x Shank x Wande Coal can only produce a genius track like this one. Although rumored to still be in the works, I like the production on Throw Away. Press play & drop a comment.

Finally D’Banj breaks his silence on his split with Don Jazzy…says he feels betrayed

In an in-depth and revealing interview with NetNG’s Ayeni the Great in London, D’Banj finally broke his silence on all the Mo Hits, Don Jazzy drama. No subject was off limits…the koko master did no hold back revealing insights in to the split saying Don Jazzy INITIATED the split not him because he was scared, how the Kanye deal REALLY happened, how HE ran Mo Hits for 9 years and set up all of their endorsement and business deals, not Don Jazzy as widely believed.

He doesn’t stop there he also accuses Don Jazzy of betraying him and tweeting from Wande Coal’s account. After emails between the two were leaked a few weeks ago, in which he claimed he bought Don Jazzy a bentley, WC responded to those claims by tweeting “saying that he bought a car for Don Jazzy is wrong and untrue. Come onnnnnn. I can’t take it any longer”.  Wande has since deleted that tweet and D’Banj is accusing Don Jazzy of sending it out not Wande.

Grab some plantain chips and coke cos it’s an interesting read. You may find yourself switching teams when you are done :)

Stars of Hollywood, Nollywood & Gollywood at the AMAA 2012 Awards in Lagos

Hollywood D-Listers Lynn Whitfield, Isiah Washington (Grey’s Anatomy), Morris Chestnut (The Best Man) joined Nollywood and Gollywood’s finest (that is those that didn’t make it to Stephanie Okereke’s Paris Wedding) at the AMAA (African Movie Academy Awards) 2012 which took place yesterday night in Lagos, Nigeria

The fashion on this red carpet na die! Between Uche Jumbo‘s bright yellow pant suit and Ghanian actress Lydia Forson’s ghastly makeup I just couldn’t! But there were some bright spots namely Empress Njamah who looked stunning in her body con dress (didn’t like her shoes though), Eku Edewor, Kate Henshaw, Eku Edewor and Nse Ekpi Etim also looked stunning in their gowns.

And there was Dencia…in her trademark catsuit.

I know Rita Dominic attended but i couldn’t get my hands on any red carpet photos of her.

Sheifunmi: I am not crazy, Diary of a Bipolar Menace

Hi everyone, this is a PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT about Mental Health Illness in our society.

My friend, blogger and media personality Sheifunmi has been upfront about his ongoing struggles with mental health, specifically bipolar disorder. He opened up to me about his illness sometime late last year and I just thought to myself WOW! This young man is so brave and open, I just wanted to give him a hug and tell him it will be alright. But based on the little knowledge I have of mental health disorders (I know a handful of people who sufferer from a range of illnesses) I knew he needed way more than a hug, him and others in the same boat, need most of all understanding that bipolar disorder and any other mental disorder is actually a valid health issue, just like any physical health issue.

BBA’s Karen Igho is engaged!

 

Karen sure knows how to keep her personal life private. I haven’t heard anything about her dating anyone or even being photographed on the red carpet and functions with any one other than Denrele…could she be engaged to Denrele?! LOL

So you can imagine my surprise yesterday when I saw her tweet “He proposed :)” followed by “He said karen will you marry me?” I honestly thought she was clowning her followers. But it looks like it’s no belated April Fools as she posted a twitpic with the engagement ring.

Congrats girl! Now I wonder who this mystery man is….it’s quite possible it’s Denrele o!
