Hey lovvies, a little birdie’s just told me that Nollywood star Stephanie Okereke is said to be engaged to her man of 2 years Linus Idahosa, following an emotional proposal to her at a surprise birthday party for the actress in Lagos Nigeria.
Looking at the pictures from comedian AY‘s 6th Oct show in London…is making my Monday morning even worse…How could I have missed this show? Oh I know…I had work **crying**
AY brought his unique brand of humour to the first of 2 sold out UK shows. Joining him were an all star lineup including 9ice, Aki, Paw-Paw, Ikechukwu & many more.
Check out more pictures after the jump!
Hey lovvies how are you all this morning? Where did the weekend go? I can’t believe it’s Monday…again? I need more sleep! For those in North America get ready cos ever-youthful Sade Adu is coming to an arena near you.
Following the monster success of their first studio album in a decade Soldier of Love released this past February, UK band Sade is gearing up for a busy 2011 as they take their tour bus stateside. Led by singer Sade Adu, the band will be kicking off their 50-city tour on June 16 in Baltimore.
This is for the hip-hop heads…I used to be one, but Hip-Pop got the better of me…as some would say “I sold out”. Today Modenine dropped “Pay At-10-Shun”, his free (for download only) collaborative album with South african producer Alias.
Apparently neither of them have ever met in person, they met online, Alias produced the beats, sent them to Mode to lay his vocals…he sends it back and voila we have an album all in 3days! As my mom would say TECH-I-NOLOGY.
After a week that saw the UK public call for Cheryl Cole’s perfectly coiffed head on a platter. The first week of the X Factor live shows got off to a promising start tonight. Much to my disappointment (and at least 80% of the viewing public) Gamu wasn’t brought back as a wild card entry…in fact she is now facing deportation to Zimbabwe…long story, get the info here.
Please lets pray for this girl and her fam, she’s super talented…and if they feel they would have a better life here why don’t the British government want let them…after all her mum has worked her for years and dutufully paid her taxes!
Anyways I digress…John Adeleye kicked off tonight’s show with his performance of One Sweet Day, and not bad John, not bad…one of my faves of the night…plus his makeover suits him to a T!
See his & other performances after the jump!
Debut single “Holla at your Boy” from 20 year old EME artist WizKid. Shot in Lagos & directed by Banky W & Patrick Ellis. We like a LOT…Wizkid is definitely one to watch out for.
What are your thoughts?
The folks over at We Plug G.O.O.D music have released “A Prelude to the Future” a compilation spanning the genres hip-hop, soul, r&b, and spoken word from 20 promising Nigerian, American, and British acts you should be listening out for.
To focus on the emerging Nigerian artists featured on this compilation, Bez (“More You”) and Waje (“For a minute”) delivered their similar soul, and r&b sounds respectively. Needless to say an album can’t be too far away for these two.
Hello lovelies. Rapper Ikechukwu was spotted with rumoured girlfriend Sarah Ofili, backstage at the AY show Wednesday night at the Indigo o2, London. So for all you ladies who were hoping to get it in with Killz…looks like he’s off the market now…sorry. Mehn they look very cute together…very Jayonce!
The model/blogger who bears an uncanny resemblance to a certain Mrs. Carter also performed a sexy dance routine with him on stage. Check on it after the jump.
Kaffy (Kafayat Shafau) is without a doubt the most prolific dancer/choreographer in Nigeria…Name any artiste and she’s probably featured in their videos! In 2006 she won the Silverbird-Nokia Dance-athon after dancing for 55 hours and 40 minutes earning her a place in the Guinness Book of Records. In addition to her many accolades she choreographs and has judging duties on Malta Guiness Street Dance Africa.

Nneka’s hit Heartbeat, receives the remix treatment with an exclusive remix by US producer KoolKojak, who’s worked with Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Flo Rida & Jennifer Lopez. The remix trades the original’s live piano & drums for an electro-pop sound that is sure to be a club banger.
