Like many others, I chose not to talk about her but I was forced to know how wrong I was for keeping silent by the words of Alibaba and OJB, two eminent personalities that means a lot to the entertainment industry.

Alibaba once tweeted “Playing a song of an artiste that you know is not good enough is no encouragement you are spoiling the market”, I don't know what he had in mind. In an online interview with OJB by the crew of Information Nigeria, he said

Tonto Dikeh seems to be having all the spotlights on her. She is just like a hated but indispensable element. When she joined the music industry few months ago, many hated her for it while few others accepted her. But that notwithstanding, she stood tall and marched forward in her quest to become an A-list music artiste.

She was recently mobbed by fans when she stormed the venue of an event. Many gathered to catch a glimpse of the controversial Ikwere ambassador who is in the movie and music industries.

Excitement was what was written on the faces of those around. While some might be surprised that what exactly warrants such attention? Tonto seems not to be bothered about that.

In another related development, the actress cum singer posted on her Instagram page a picture of her with her dancers.

Tonto disclosed that she is preparing for the AY Live Show holding in Lagos this Easter. Knowing fully well that AY's shows are always sold out, it is expected that Tonto cannot but deliver to further prove her point to critics.

Call it the director's creativity or mischief, the movie, Oga at the top, is out. Quite similar to the viral 'Oga at the top' quote, the movie features popular Nollywood actor, Nkem Owoh, also known as Osuofia.

Although the viral quote stopped trending on Twitter after a week of dominance, Nigerians put their creativity to test as they made T-shirts, mugs, songs and jokes about the error made by the Lagos State Commandant of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, Obafaiye Shem, during an interview on Channels Televison.

Efforts to reach Osuofia proved futile as his mobile phone was switched off when Saturday Beats tried to reach him. He did not also reply to a text message sent to his phone

Being a film buff, Ayo took a few courses in, Film School - writing, directing and shooting a three minute film, along with fellow students; Production Management; Producing; and, Screenwriting.

Ayo expresses his gratitude to Theodora Ibekwe, who gave him the opportunity o get involved in a major film production.

It of course stars multi-talented Theodora Ibekwe - PR Guru, Events Organiser, Charity Fundraiser, Actress & Film Producer; Gambian femme fatale, Fatima Jabbe; veteran actors Lanre Balogun and Moji Bamtefa; and many other talents.

Nollywood Actress, Chika Ike Decries Impersonators Acts On Facebook

Click for Full Image Size
Chika Ike, the Nollywood star actress' attention has been drawn to some people milking her fans dry, demanding for money, recharged cards and what have you from her loving fans. The beautiful thespian, who has had series of sleeplessness over the issue, has come to deprecate the acts of the impostors as criminal offence. In a brief chat with her PR, Serah Donald, we gathered that Chika, a well known actress in Nollywood and beyond would never, for any reason, solicit for recharged cards or money from her fans.

“It's an extortion of the highest order and it's criminal too. A lot of people have been calling Chika that some people are actually using her name on Facebook to be making some nasty requests from her fans; this really gets her down, the reason is because, her name is a brand she has built over the years and someone, somewhere is impersonating in a bid to tarnish it,” her spokesperson said.

In view of this, the talented actress is advising her fans all over the world that she doesn't run a facebook account, she only has a FAN PAGE account and if she is doing competition or anything related to that, she will announce it on her FAN PAGE to show its authenticity and not on one facebook account operated by hackers.

If you recall that, Chika is not the only entertainers faced with these challenges, other big names like hers too in the industry have had, in one way or the other, terrible and unpalatable experience of internet hackers or impersonators

Why we make s*x look real in our movies in Ghana-Yvonne Okoro

Click for Full Image Size
Yvonne Okoro Talks About S*x…The Contract Bags Six Nominations

This is what Nigeria/Ghana actress, Yvonne Okoro, said when she was asked to defend Ghollywood on n*dity and s*x in their movies, "I think sometimes when you are acting, you feel like doing something that you want to be remembered for. Maybe in the course you overdo it. It depends on the script. I think in Ghana we wanted to start something, like a Trans-setter.

Our culture does not allow topics like s*x and n*dity but in a way sometimes I think we are also being hypocritical. A Hollywood movie will come, we will watch it and be happy and compliment them.

I think if you are going to do n*dity, you should not do it in a tacky way. It should be done with what will conform to our culture. I think it is about choice, if you think you want to remove yourself and think it will help your character and you don't have a problem with it, it is fine."

The actress whose maiden effort, the Contract movie, has bagged six nominations is already happy about the new development and she is doing everything possible to hit the location soon for another fantastic movie.

Toke reminiscences on this 10 points 'agenda' and she wants to share it with her fans and followers. Seat back and enjoy her most cherished 10 points secrets you have never known before now.

• “I suffer from short-man syndrome. A lot of people think I'm snobbish, or I'm a rude person. But it's just us short people we always think people want to take us for granted because of our height. So I'd rather cut you off before that happens.”

• “My favourite food is Amala, Gbegiri and Ewedu. I don't get to eat that as much as I'd love to but every time I go to like a local restaurant I always order that.”

• “I cry easily. I'm a big softie. I'm a hopeless romantic – I don't go to weddings because I cry a lot. That's one thing people don't know. People invite me for their weddings and I don't turn up, and they don't understand why. I've been to a few weddings and I cried my eyes out.”

• “I suffered a great loss at a very young age, and I'm still trying to open up about myself. So let's just say I'm still not ready to talk about it.”

• “My favourite holiday destination is Spain. I would go to Spain over and over again. I love Marbella. It's so beautiful there, the people are so nice.”

• “I'm a TV series junkie. I never have time to watch a lot of TV but right now I'm watching 'Scandal', 'Revenge', 'Suits' and 'Downtown Abbey'.”

• “I love pets a lot. I don't have one yet but I'm thinking of getting a dog soon.”

• “I'm very open to adoption. I find it very weird when people talk about having kids and they say, oh you kids must be your kids and I think it's such a selfish way to live because there are a thousand children out there who could do with some shelter. Even when I have my own kids I'll still adopt. I think it's such a beautiful thing; it's a way of giving back. People help us in different ways, and if you can bring that sunshine to someone else, why not?”

• “I was a late-bloomer. I remember in secondary school when all my mates where already wearing bras, I was still very flat-chested. It was terrible.”

• “I love my own company most times. People think I'm very loud and always out there. But on some days I can be very into myself.”

Battered!

Click for Full Image Size
Nollywood UK Actress Fatima Jabbe, also Lead actress and producer in the Newly acclaimed Film of 2013 BATTERED, is heading to Africa to start her campaign against domestic violence on women in Africa. Her first port of call will be Sierra Leone where she will spend her Easter talking to media houses, victims of Domestic violence and government officials.

She expresses her heart desire in helping bring awareness to this topic that no one wants to talk about. Victims are too ashamed to talk about it and Law makers are reluctant to see this degrading act legislated against.

I believe i have a mission to play my part in this serious issue. Sometimes God gives you the platform to grow but when you do, you should use it in a positive way towards helping others.

My intention is to be able to go to Sierra Leone, Ghana, Nigeria, Liberia and the Gambia. I have been blessed to have so much love and support from my people in the Gambia especially my president H.E. Yahya Jammeh who believes women have the right to be happy and live happily, whilst given the right to contribute towards the development of the Nation, I am hoping i can get the same amount of support from other countries affected by this act of violence.

As one of Africa's Best Actresses, i believe with the right support we can get people to understand that domestic violence is not the way forward in solving matters, but only results in psychological and mental torture. We should learn to love, support and respect each other. A home with domestic violence results in lack of trust, a broken home and broken hearts. I hope i will be able to reach as many victims and abusers as possible just to make them understand they can change and stop this selfish act. I hope by making this movie 'BATTERED', it highlights how important it is for victims not to keep quiet, but rather seek help and try to make government officials and law makers to act on this issue. Once everyone knows that domestic violence is punishable by Law, the journey to eradicate this violent act should be heading towards the right direction.

I wrote BATTERED as a campaign tool. Violence against women is an obstacle to the achievement of equality, development and peace. I believe it is time for us to work together and find a solution to it because many women have been raped, beaten up and even killed through violence and together, we need to Stop it!

I am very grateful to be able to work with some of the best people in the Nollywood film industry today and thank them for coming on board to help tackle this serious issue.

Renowned actors like the legendary and versatile Lanre Balogun who doubled as the co - director, other cast members in support were Super Eagle's and Montpellier Football star John Utaka, Yvonne Hays, Theodora Ibekwe, Collins Archie Pearce, Atto Erick, Marie Gomez, Olivia , Otto Linder, Nana Churcher of the Nana Churcher Show, khadija Mendoza, DJ Ozzy, Jay One, Ika, Tim Uche and Madam Happiness.


Crew include Professional make-up artist Libeks, the visionary cinematographer Nelson Spyk, and co-director of the film, the young and dynamic ALABA Festus.

IYANYA IS ONE OF THE GUYS THAT MAKES THINGS HAPPEN


Iyanya is one of the guys in showbiz world today who make things happen. The MTN Project fame winner who is rocking the city with hIS Kukere hit track has explained what growing up was like to him.

Though, he said the early to grave of his parents prepared him for the big task ahead, notwithstanding he said he came into entertainment world to create his own history.

First of all, the discipline I got from my parents and the karaoke session I was always going to sing as a staff prepared me for Project Fame, because it was there I got bolder, my voice got stronger, I wasn’t just singing songs, I was singing classical songs.

I was singing these old songs so it made my voice bolder. So by the time I came to Project Fame, if I had sang like 20 songs in Project Fame, I had been singing like 18 in the bar before. So, all I had to do was just to perfect it. I was browbeaten; some people would say I am singing to steal their girlfriends. I have a scar on my head, I got that when somebody used a chair on me. I slept at the bar basically everyday, where people smoked I slept there and I always came out reeking of cigarette, he explained.

He further said, ‘’definitely people will look down on you doing jobs like that, but this is the same people when I get back there, they have to beg to take pictures with me. The place is now a club, so when I go there, I don’t go as a staff, I go as a star.

These days before I go there, I have this chair waiting for me in the VIP section. Sometimes you are just somewhere and you know the job is crap; people come there and laugh at you. When I was there, some boys will come with their girlfriends and spend money, they will tell me, “My girl wants you to sing.” Sometimes, if I say I can’t sing, they will be insulting me, “Are you mad? You are just a karaoke guy, what is wrong with you”, and I would start crying. Whatever negative thing people told me, I never really took it to heart.

I just channelled all my energy into hard work. So, whatever anybody told me that was bad, I just want to make good out of it. That is what I do. I am very thankful to everybody who had looked down on me, because they are the reason why I am here today,’’ he told us



 Gorgeous diva EMMA NYRA drops the long anticipated video – Everything I do featuring one of the most sought after artists, Iyanyapresented to you by Triple MG. The Everything I do musical video leaves you with one feeling… making you fall in love over and over again. Awesome performance from label mates Emma Nyra & Iyanya as this is one of the biggest love music videos released this year. The location, scenes, costumes… Brilliant! Video directed by Mr. Moe Musa
Desire 

CAUTION: You might hear the word/name ‘Ronaldo’ in every song on this album, do not be offended. Apparently Iyanya Mbuk is a desperate fan of the soccer star.
We will not waste time debating about the angle Iyanya and his team had in mind when creating his sophomore album. We’ll go ahead and hit the nail on the head by labelling ‘Desire’ a near-monstrous disappointment simply because the Project Fame winner refused to push his art, making the LP feeble, unfulfilling and far from adventurous. Notwithstanding ‘Desire’ might be the most commercial album of the year, if caution is not exercised.  The LP not only houses the hits that catapulted Iyanya to the top of the music food chain, it also features celebrated producers and guest appearances from international pop act D’banj, Mavin beauty Tiwa Savage, high-life prince Flavour to star-boy Wizkid. Is it all hype? Digest this track to track review:
Badman (feat. M.I): Interestingly, Iyanya’s debut album ‘My Story’ opened with M.I on the R&B/Hip Hop track titled ‘Gbadun You’. Yet again, he employs Mister Incredible to kick off the ceremony on his sophomore album with the daring ragga tale about surviving hate tagged ‘Badman’. Iyanya proves he is indeed the leading man as he rides the Mr. Chido beat like a hot knife slicing through ice. The track which is complimented by M.I’s bars will surely leave tongues wagging.
Ekaette (feat. Tekno): Ekaette loves to dance, and so do we. The chorus of the song sealed the destiny of becoming a moderate club hit at least despite the very blonde lyrics and production similar to Kcee’s ‘Okpete’.
Gasegbe: Iyanya refuses to leave the corner of the box he is thinking in and it results in another production driven number. ‘Gasegbe’ might be catchy when you are under the influence but on a regular day, it is simply unmemorable.
Marry Me: The lyrics of this mid-tempo romantic ballad are a bit controversial as the vocalist sings; ‘Do you remember the way dem they criticize our matter for Twitter? For you love my dear, girl I surrender…’ Tonto Dikeh or Yvonne Nelson? Well the much-desired singer belts to his lover to marry him regardless of observers’ opinions. Lovely tune.
Flavour: Retouched for the album is the third lead single off the album ‘Flavour’. D’tunes magic fingers are to be blamed for the strength of this number. It’s a fusion of highlife and francophone music showcasing ear-teasing strings, trumpets, drums and piano. Iyanya shines on this cut.
Limbo: In less than 3 minutes, Iyanya delivers yet another empty but promising up-tempo dance number. Yet, Young D’s stellar production saves the day and makes up for Iyanya’s flaws.
Whine (feat. May D): Iyanya and May D fall hands with ‘Whine’. Their collision gives birth to a lyrical joke and the beat marks the start of the monotonous track.
Jombolo (feat. Flavour): Kudos to Flavour, the high-life royal brought it on this cut. That said, either it is outright laziness or Iyanya just wanted to sample almost the same chorus used by Ay dot com and Timaya for the fast rising hit ‘Jogodo’. Whatever the case, we cannot get past it…
Some More (feat. Yung L): Grip Boy ‘Yung L’ makes a memorable appearance on ‘Some More’. Creamy vocals, nice delivery…
Ur Waist (feat. Emma Nyra): ‘It’s D’tunes again oh’ and Iyanya wants ‘Ur Waist’. Challenging and sonically daring, Iyanya pushed boundaries with this track and it paid off big time.
I Gat It: The only low-tempo or slow song in the bunch, is a love ballad’ titled ‘I Gat It. Iyanya reminds us that he can sing.
Somebody (feat. Tiwa Savage): Reminiscent of ‘Flavour’ is the Tiwa Savage assisted ‘Somebody’. The over usage of auto-tune or vocoder on Savage’s vocals comes off a bit unpleasant to the ears. However the duo ‘jonze’ around and Iyanya disses singers as he interrupts Tiwa Savage’s vocal runs and tells her to stop over-singing saying: ‘…Hold it! That one no they pay oh!’
Little Things: Shockingly he shines like a little diamond as he sings on ‘Little Things’. D’tunes showcases his versatility as a producer as he abandons his xylophone which has being over-used already on the album.
Sexy Mama (feat. Wizkid): Wizkid steals the entire show on the heavy ‘Sexy Mama’. He even sang roughly 80% of the song, thereby putting Iyanya in the shoes of the featured artiste. D’tunes again brought his A-game though the track still sounds very rushed, forced and makes Iyanya look out of place.
Kukere: ’Kukere’ redefined ‘Iyanya’ as an artiste. It became the un-official anthem for the dance ‘Etighi ‘and was arguably the biggest song of 2012. Iyanya and D’tunes experimented and broke sound barriers resulting in a classic. Yes! Kukere is timeless.
Your Man (feat. Vector): It seems the closing minutes of the albums have some gems: starting with ‘Your Man’, which features an exceptional rap verse from Vector. Iyanya returns to his ‘My Story’ form on the 16th track. It’s a feel good R&B number that is made that much more soothing with the background vocals.
Drowning: Tee Y Mix crafted what might be the best song on ‘Desire’. Despite the title, Iyanya soars far above the ocean level on ‘Drowning’. He makes camp on the dance-pop beat, flaunting his rich, silky, and falsetto singing voice. He belts deep lyrics about the heartache because by the absence of his love.
Kukere (Remix) feat. D’banj: The end of Iyanya’s ‘Desire’ is the mega remix to the lead single featuring G.O.O.D music recording artiste D’banj. The remixed track aims to please the high men of the society.
Bust My Brain: The bonus track is a brilliant ragga song sampling classic ragga/dancehall numbers.
‘Desire’ is a jam-packed with very shallow and monotonous club and radio friendly cuts which will hold grounds individually but as a body of work, it falls flat on its face.
Random Fact: Iyanya means ‘Desire’ in English language.

Blackface Is Angry With 2face For Not Inviting Him To Dubai

Click for Full Image Size
Blackface, one of the famous but defunct group, Plantatun Boiz, is not happy at the moment with Tuface, a former buddie and pal, for not sending him invitation to Dubai for the superlative wedding.

Blackface expressed his grievance recently on a social media; Twitter, when a fan asked him why he was not at the event. And his response was like “I no dey go where I no dey invited!”

From the look of things, it's so obvious that the guy is not happy for being segregated to witness the wedding despite the fact that the song that actually made Tuface, The African Queen, was composed by him. This is really not good enough!

Back in the day, 2Face was one part of three-member boy band 'Plantashun Boiz'. After releasing classics like “Knock me Off” and “You and I“, the group split amidst controversial circumstances in 2004. It seemed all members buried the hatchet however as the group re-united to release one final album 'Plan B' three years after the split.

2Face, Annie Macaulay's Marital Vows On Wedding Day

Click for Full Image Size
Last week Saturday, 2Face Idibia and Annie Macaulay exchanged martial vows. The two lovers, in the presence of guests at the event, renewed the love they both have for each other.

Below are their marital vows;

2Face

Many years ago, I was farther than the eyes could see. Now, we are now in that future. When I look into your eyes, I still see. You came into my life and you lit it up like the sun, like the moon, like the stars.

All the words in the dictionary, all the words in this world can not be enough to say what my heart feels for you. But all I can say is baby, my heart is like a stereo right now and it will beat only for you till death do us part.

I love you baby.

Annie

My joy, my heart, my friend, my love! I stand before you today as open as I can ever be, humbled by the light and love in your eyes.

13 years ago, I met the most amazing man on earth. I flew on the wings of that love, uncaring, unheeding believing firmly that you are and will always be the wind beneath my wings.

Life happened, oh yes life happened but through it all my heart beat only for you. My heartbreak became my greatest joy, my strength, my life.

Day after day, I am more in love with you. When people ask me what is love, I say love is right here. This moment, this second, today, tomorrow.

Love is you, love is real, love is my eternity with you Innocent Ujah Idibia. I give you all of me today knowing that in you and you only has this imperfect girl found perfection.

I do 13 years ago when I met you, I do 7yrs ago, I do 5yrs ago when we created our daughter.

I do through all the blogs and tabloid headlines. And on this day, at this very second I stand in front of the world and I say I do take you as my wedded husband.

I love you. I love you so much, so so much.

Comparing My Song To Tonto's Is Crazy--Saeon Explodes

Click for Full Image Size
It is the joy of every artistes to go to the studio to record a song and such song is acclaimed as not just ok, but worth paying for. Almost every artistes boast of how 'tight' or good their songs are.

Artistes are always optimistic about how their songs will become a platinum hit even if deep down inside them, they know their most cherished person won't waste a penny to buy or even waste his free time to listen to the song.

But for Nigerian female singer called Saeon, she became angry when someone on twitter compared her song 'Jara' to one of Tonto Dikeh's songs.

This angered Saeon who then tweeted, "I get compared to Tiwa Savage, Britney Spears, the likes of SeyiShay, Yemi Alade, etc but comparing me to Tonto? You musta bumped your head.

"I don't spend ample time tryna put together the best lyrics and melodies just to hear that a product of mine sounds Tonto Dike'ish! Utter Rubbish!

"Hiss! Comparing my music to Tonto Dikeh's, now that's a fucking problem!"

It is not clear if these comments will push Saeon to make 'better' songs.

GOV AKPABIO IS LIKE A FATHER TO MY WIFE---2Face Idibia

Click for Full Image Size
The superlative wedding of Tuface and Annie might have come and gone, the impression left behind will forever lingers. One of which is the public outcry about the reason for the lavished gifts on the couple by Governor Akpabio. The man of the house, Tuface has responded critics and we believe it's a final answer to every question.

“I don't feel strangely for getting support for our wedding, I am just happy and that is the most important thing. My wife is from the Akwa Ibom State and the governor of the state is like a father to her.

The governor said he was doing all these because he loves his daughter and I don't think I should feel anyhow because a father is showering his daughter blessings. I don't believe anybody should feel anyhow, it is a celebration mood, so everybody should be happy,” 2Baba, as he's fondly called responded.

On their choice of Dubai for the white wedding, Tuface said it's more spiritual than physical. Before they left for Dubai, he explained that, “I think there is this spiritual connection to it, but I don't want to disclose it now.

Let's just say that we love Dubai and we also discovered that it was a perfect venue for us. Contrary to what people are saying that we chose Dubai because of the crowd, we thought of a perfect place for the white wedding and the idea of Dubai came up. I don't know about crowd control. We just want to have the best of the moment and make sure things go rightly.

There is nothing more to it. It does not have to do with controlling the people or anything. The fact is that you can't run away from the people. Anywhere you go, you will meet people and these people have come to celebrate with us.”

DAVIDO'S HKN ON FIRE…SHINA RAMBO MAY QUIT SOON

Click for Full Image Size
If scoop reaching us is anything to go by, Omo Baba Olowo, David Adeleke a.k.a. Davido may not be finding it easy with his HKN group that we learnt are not too pleased with him for his overriding.

B-Red and Sina Rambo are said to be ready to stool for war if Davido fails to do anything with the situation of him being trying to outshine them.

We gathered that Davido's cousins and label mates- Sina Rambo and B-Red had a nasty fight with their more popular cousin in Atlanta. According to the story, the reason for the family feud stemmed from Sina Rambo and B-Red believing that Davido was doing little to promote their works and was intentionally releasing singles and music videos to overshadow their singles.

“Sources tell us a big fight allegedly ensued between Davido and cousins B Red and Sina Rambo some weeks back in Atlanta – The cousins had accused Davido of not doing much for their careers as much as he should after they chose him as the label's front line act. They also accused him of not giving them a chance to fully promote their new singles only to overshadow them at any given chance.”

in view of this, B-Red and Sina Rambo who are the sons of Davido's father's senior brother have threatened to quit the group if something is not done urgently by Davido.

Davido Signs New Artiste

Davido's record label, HKN Gang, has signed a new artiste onto it. The artiste is named Danagod.

Danagod has shot a video for one of his songs 'Bobo Ti Bobo' in the US and Nigeria. He has been in the music industry for some time now but has not had the big break. Danagod featured alongside Igho and Orezi in DJ Debby's track 'Emoti'.
