'The truth of the matter is the industry is fake' -Jaywon

Jaywon the ‘Odun Yii’ singer talks about the fakeness of the music industry,  politics, his plans for 2015 and so much more. Read excerpts from his interview below.

On Politics in Nigeria:
It is a little bit confusing though. Some people want change, some people want transformation, while some want continuity. But individually we have our opinion and the right to vote for whatever candidate we want. In Nigeria we are so fond of talking and talking. Let’s get our PVC and vote that is the only thing we can do as Nigerians before we criticize. Some people say our vote does not count, who tell una say vote no dey count, u don vote first? If u check na people wey neva collect their PVC na dem dey tlk say vote no count.

I'll let my children try drugs 'in moderation' -Madonna

Speaking about her track Devil Pray, which includes the lyrics "we can get high, we can get stoned, we can do Es, we can do acid", the open-minded singer admitted that she personally doesn't like to take drugs after trying them herself, but that she couldn't tell her children not to try for themselves.

'I am not a big fan of drugs. They just don't suit me,' she confessed. 'The handful of times I have tried drugs, many many many many years ago, I just didn't enjoy it. I wanted it out of me. I started guzzling bottles of water thinking that was going to end it.'

The interviewer then pressed about how she discusses such a thing with her children - Lourdes, 18, Rocco, 14, Mercy, nine, and David, also nine.

An unidentified assassin shot dead former deputy Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov (right), firing four times while he was walking with a woman across a bridge. He was shot in the back just metres from the Kremlin shortly after midnight local time. President Putin condemned the murder and said it may have been a contract killing, according to Russian news agencies.

He had publicly expressed concerns for his life earlier this month and was outspoken in his opposition to Putin according to a report by UKMail.

One billion young at risk of hearing loss from loud music – WHO

More than one billion young people risk damaging their hearing through listening to loud music, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Friday. The WHO estimates that around half of those between the ages of 12 and 35 in middle- and high-income countries are at risk due to unsafe levels of sound on personal audio devices or smartphones.

Another 40 percent are at risk from damaging audio levels at concert venues and night clubs.

“More and more young people are exposed to unsafe levels of sounds. Young people should be aware that once you lose your hearing, it won’t come back,” said Shelley Chadha, a WHO specialist on hearing impairment.

The UN health agency considers a volume above 85 decibels for eight hours or 100 decibels for 15 minutes as unsafe. Exposure to traffic noise at peak hours can reach 85 decibels.

The All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), yesterday, in London gave a speech at the at the Chatham House on Prospects for Democratic Consolidation in Africa: Nigeria’s Transition.

ISIS Blood thirsty Jihadi John unmasked

Smiling at the camera with his church school friends (left), there is nothing to link this middle-class schoolboy to the merciless terrorist butcher Jihadi John. But Mohammad Emwazi can tonight be unmasked as the notorious Islamic State murderer who has shocked the world with his bloodlust. Arriving in Britain when he was six years old, Kuwaiti-born Mohammed Emwazi appeared to embrace British life, playing football in the affluent streets of West London while supporting Manchester United. Neighbours recalled a polite, quietly spoken boy who was studious at his Church of England school, where he was the only Muslim pupil in his class. The son of a Kuwaiti minicab driver, young Emwazi arrived in Britain speaking only a few words of English, and appeared more interested in football than in Islam. This is according to a report by UKMail.

Sad to say that the young boy (you see circled in the photo above) has become a man... not just a man but a blood thirsty Jihadist called Jihadi John.

Stolen baby found in S.Africa after 17 years

A baby stolen from her sleeping mother’s arms shortly after birth has been found by the family through an astonishing coincidence 17 years later, South African police said Friday.

A 50-year-old woman has been arrested and charged with kidnapping after pupils noticed a remarkable likeness between the 17-year-old and her younger biological sister who started attending the same school this year.

DNA tests have confirmed that the older girl is the daughter of Celeste and Morne Nurse, who was snatched from Groote Schuur hospital as a three-day-old baby named Zephany in April 1997, local media reported.

The parents, who later had three more children, have celebrated Zephany’s birthday every year since she was kidnapped, never giving up hope that their first-born child would come back to them someday, the Cape Argus said.

Muna Obiekwe's Death Aftermath: We don’t abandon ailing actors -AGN President Ibinabo

Nollywood actress and President of Actors Guild of Nigeria, Ibinabo Fiberesima has lashed out at all those who blamed the AGN for abandoning late actor, Muna Obiekwe to his fate. Speaking during the candlelight service held in honour of the actor in Lagos, she revealed that she was shocked at reports going round that the AGN dumped Muna.

Hear her: “Think first before you write. The man was married, he had a wife and children. When you go about writing rubbish about the dead, it will haunt you. If you don’t know the truth about something, don’t spread it. It’s even worse if you are an AGN member. Everyone is sad because of his death. If I had known, being the kind of person I am, I would die to save Muna. I didn’t know, most of us never knew and Muna begged the few people who knew not to tell anyone. He had his reasons and let us respect it. Let’s stop writing rubbish – He drank alcohol, does that make you better than him? Let us respect Muna, he’s no longer with us. Mind your busines…
