President Goodluck Jonathan Replies Olusegun Obasanjo's Letter

 December 20th 2013
His Excellency,
Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, GCFR
Agbe L’Oba House, Quarry Road,
Ibara, Abeokuta.


I wish to formally acknowledge your letter dated December 2, 2013 and other previous correspondence similar to it.

You will recall that all the letters were brought to me by hand. Although both of us discussed some of the issues in those letters, I had not, before now, seen the need for any formal reply since, to me, they contained advice from a former President to a serving President. Obviously, you felt differently because in your last letter, you complained about my not acknowledging or replying your previous letters.

Jaywon- "I’m not in music to chase women"

His hit track, ‘This year’, has dominated the airwaves for a while. James Oluwajuwonlo Edahi a.k.a Jaywon, in this interview, talks about life as an artiste

What inspired the hit single, ‘This year’?
I was tired of doing the same thing and I wanted to do something different. Also, I wanted to be different from every other person. I wanted my music to sound more inspirational and that is why my songs always have a feel of highlife and juju. Let me not explain that I retraced my steps. I just wanted to do something different.  I listen to a lot of King Sunny Ade and Ebenezer Obey because their songs are the type that stands the test of time. They are evergreen songs.

"I’m very single"  Guys Take Note –Jennifer Olize
My name is Jennifer Olize. I hail from Ila, Delta State. I’m in my 20s. I am an event-planner, a stylist, a jeweller and a fashion consultant. My parents are Mr. and Mrs. Frank Olize. I studied Business Economics at the University of Reading, United Kingdom and I earned a postgraduate in Event Management at the University of New York. Initially, I wanted to have a course on wedding planning but I never enjoyed going to weddings in Nigeria. This is because everyone has turned it to entertainment. Therefore, I decided to focus more on fashion and when the idea of merging music and fashion cropped up, I jumped at it. I love planning events and as a child, I always organised parties.

My message in this album was finding the beauty in imperfection,” she said.


Omg! He must be kidding lol... In an announcement that no doubt caused rivers of teenage girls' tears across the world, 19-year-old Justin Bieber revealed he is taking a step back from the music industry when his new album, Journals, is released next week, and it could be permanent.

Reports say Justin had told radio station Power 106 in Los Angeles, California, on Tuesday:
'After the new album, I'm actually retiring man. I'm retiring.' When the radio hosts reacted in shock/surprised, Justin backtracked slightly suggesting he has not quite made up his mind: 'I want to grow as an artist and I'm taking a step out, I want my music to mature.'

TMZ, however, says a source confirmed to them that the 19-year-old was just joking and has no plans to permanently hang up his microphone.

Justin's talk of retirement is coming a day before his documentary Believe is premiered in Los Angeles.

How was it being the longest reigning Miss Nigeria from 2004 to 2010?
Well, it wasn’t my wish to be the longest reigning queen. Unforeseen circumstances that had to do with the office made my reign so long; but at the same time, it was great. I was able to impact on lives positively. I led a national awareness campaign tour with emphasis on promoting a healthy lifestyle, which was part of my pet project of preventing of malaria. I had endorsement deals for companies and others. It was really an eye-opener for me and it opened a lot of doors for me as well.

Here is what Emmy said about each chosen industry player. To those who made the list a big congratulations.... ooopps! Will they recieve an award for it... Lol


Nigerian UK based writer Chimamanda Adichie‘s book ‘Americanah‘ has been listed as one of New York Times 10 Best Books of 2013. The year’s best books were selected by the editors of The New York Times Book Review. This is a big plus to her astronomical profile growth over the past few years. The Nigerian Author has indeed taking her place in the list of great.

Here’s what New York Times had to say about her book:

By turns tender and trenchant, Adichie’s third novel takes on the comedy and tragedy of American race relations from the perspective of a young Nigerian immigrant. From the office politics of a hair-braiding salon to the burden of memory, there’s nothing too humble or daunting for this fearless writer, who is so attuned to the various worlds and shifting selves we inhabit — in life and online, in love, as agents and victims of history and the heroes of our own stories.

In the purported letter written by Iyabo, she blasted her father calling him a liar as we earlier reported. But the big twist now is that Iyabo has claimed not to be the writer of the purported letter rather she claim it originated from the Goodluck Jonathan camp.
