SUSPEKT- Release Party

This Thursday, 16th December, 2010 its SUSPEKTS album release party at JADE PALACE- (Volar by Vuitton). The list of celebrity guests is massive-(think any artiste that is currently relevant in the music industry). The events starts at 6pm and you are welcome to attend as long as you've got your =N=5,000 gate fee.

THE EXAM- undoubtedly my best movie of the year ****



"...its not about what he said you know?..its about what he didn't say..." 
***this would rank as my favorite line in this movie.

In the last 12months i have seen lots of spectacular movies, but none compares to this awesome movie i had the rare privilege to see last nite- THE EXAM.

This movie combines share genius and simplicity. In concept only the movie PHONE BOOTH comes even close.

The entire 1hr 34mins of this movie is set in one location - a room. 8 individuals after haven scaled preliminary tests are assembled in a room and given 80mins to write a final test. After several instructions from the invigilator the test commences only for the applicants to flip their sheets and discover blank pages. They must think out of the box to provide the required answer.




The movie stars Luke Mably, Colin Salmon, Jim Mistry among other fresh faces. The movie was written, directed and produced by Stuart Hazeldine.

Lame as it may sound, but this is the kind of movie you finish watching and feel so good about within and get all sorta positive ideas out of.

Its the 14th of December, and this is undoubtedly my movie of the year.

5 G-stars to this movie.

I expect total chaos outside the venue as thousands make their way to the Eko Hotels and Suites Venue of the MTVBase MAMA 2010. Rick Ross, T-pain, Eve, 2face, Sasha are some of the artistes scheduled to perform at the event tonight.

As at last night, TRIBECA venue for the after party of the MAMAs 2010 was shut as the crew were tryna sort out the club for the maddest party of the year. 'Fingers Crossed'

Bet Big, Win Big -=TAKERS=- the movie

...this is not the way we do things gentlemen, its too fast, its too rushed...-A.J #this has got to be one of my best lines from the movie.

at the start I was disappointed at the lack of precision of the 'operation'. Then as if that was'nt enough the slip ups of these so called TAKERS got worse.

But without doubt my best part of the movie has got to be the Chris Brown/ Cop chase scene. His acrobatic s where off the hook. It could pass for a good movie so i would give the movie 3 G-stars. The movie stars  Matt Dillon, Paul Walker, Idris Elba, Jay Hernandez, Michael Ealy, Tip 'TI' Harris, Chris Brown, Hayden Christensen, and Zoe Saldana

Its action packed and enjoyable especially at the cinemas.

Lagos, Nigeria- 18th November, 2010


The Me-naissance Group, a mobile content and application development company Headquartered in Nigeria today announced the release of its First product: TMGapp.
TMGapp is a creative mobile application for smart phones set to change the way smart phones are used around the world. With a fusion of productivity and entertainment, the application is designed to make life easier for its users. The application currently has six (6) modules which include:

1.      Around you (with the aid of GPS, find out the nearest ATM, Bar, Bank, restaurant etc)
2.      TMG messenger (TMGM is a platform independent Phone-2-Phone messenger chat application)

This is sure to ensure that integrity of the application is maintained. In the words of the Chief Executive Officer Mr. Muyiwa Omosa:  
“The idea behind this product was borne out of the quest to improve the way we accessed information in this country and also because I wanted one for myself. When I was faced with the option of coming back home after completing my undergraduate and postgraduate studies in England to get a job, I was very reluctant as I’d just got the iPhone which had loads of amazing and cool applications that just made life more exciting and easy.
I thought of how useless this amazing smart phone would be if I moved back home as I wouldn’t be able to fully utilize its functions. One morning after a lot of pressure from the parents, it finally came to me. If you want something you don’t wait for people to do it for you, as Africans we are used to the world going 10 steps ahead before taking our first. With a lot of hardwork and the Grace of God we have succeeded in providing you with this really cool and revolutionary product.” The Initial release of the TMGapp is available for free download at the link below.

Extending the JAY-Z brand. (The Hits Collection Vol. 1)


If there is anything i appreciate about the average American superstar hustle, it is their creative use of brand extensions. You see for them commercializing the fame and success is actually the big money spinner.

Unlike the average African artiste who earns revenue more from shows than album sales, the artists in the developed countries engage in extensive franchising and licensing deals. I believe strongly that the top class Nigerian celebrities are gradually positioning themselves for this already.

JayZ the current King of Hiphop in my books and in  most others anyways launched a website http://www.jayzhitscollection.com recently in anticipation of the release of the Jay-Z hit collection.

The Hits Collection Vol. 1: Collectors Edition Box, which includes Jay's autograph laser–etched on endcaps with platinum sound 40mm audio driver and inline mic for use with the included Skullcandy x RocNation headphones, crafted from stainless steel and aluminum, and comes with a poly carbonate, protective carrying case. Also included is a 100-page bound photo book with rare photos and numbered linen covered box with a debossed Jay-Z "DIAMOND" logo, a deluxe linen covered case with debossed Jay-Z "HANDS" LOGO. Included is a double CD with rarities and 32 pages of rare photos.

money talks, bullshit walks


As the popular saying goes: "money talks, bullshit walks".. well bullshit can only take you as far as getting an oppurtunity to prove yourself. The thing about such a strategy is for the smart people while bull shitting their way to the top they make conscious effort to have some level of substance, On the other hand the fools only stick with the bullshit so long and sometimes get so fortunate to be ontop only to come crashing down like a pack of cards.

So you have a hit single on rotation, or you have a traffic driving blog or website 'cos you offer juicy gossip and unravel scandals, or for some it may be your role in a movie that blew up.... which ever the case, people aint as stupid as they seem.At some point they would realise how much of an air bag you are.

Finally in a sea of huge potential and talent, bullshitting is a hard job, in a sea of mediocres its pwetty easy...

do what you love<<>>love what you do

illustration by ugmonk
The thing about doing what you love for a living is it never feels like work. I believe the best way to find successful balance is when you get paid to do something you love. There is obviously a place for delayed gratification when one's passion is discovered & The fact that you are passionate about what you love won't make you mind doing it for free and doing it so well that your passion eventually speaks for you. 

Finally when you have achieved that state of public recognition doing what you are passionate about you get the right to place whatever premium you want on that passion. "Don't sell yourself short"

BigBrother Allstars Finale 17th Oct. 2010





Come sunday the 17th of October it will be exactly 91days and the final day of the BigBrother Allstars. The $200,000 question is who will be the winner? Personally asides from Mwisho & Munya i do not think any  of the last 5 housemates have worked as hard in terms of entertainment and public show of 'stupidity' (no malice). 

In my opinion, Tatiana who was evicted last sunday deserves that price more than anyone as she has been so entertaining from her terrible use of english, slangs like: FUUUuuGU, to her sexy dances, and strip teases she has found her own unique way to stay interesting. Uti on the other hand, my home boy whomi should be rooting for but SERIOUSLY REFUSE to root for has been nothing but just there in a flat kinda way, probably the best entertainment we have had from him are his constant bullying and insults to his fellow housemates which to me is a huge turn off.

You all will agree with me that as far the winning formula is concerned Kevin Chuwang pam has that. Call him pretentious and fake.. it has worked for him, and in all honesty i would have expected Uti to top Kevin's performance. Sunday will tell.

Chilean Miners: getting trapped underground could be a blessing.

This picture got me thinking about the things we take for granted in life. Being confined to a such dark space with 33 other people is no joke. Not even the housemates from Bigbrother Africa would have the faintest idea what this ordeal must have felt like for the chilean miners. I believe the guys from the popular TV reality show had the hope of at least $200,000, but these 33 miners only had the hope of 3 drills slowly making their way down in a little over 2months and the hope of at least rescue.

But like in every challenge there is an upside the miners even before their rescue have already been offered book deals, movie deals amongst other perks like all expense paid trips.One thing is certian their lives have been changed forever and they have assumed full celebrity status. I bet in the next few weeks it will be lots of lights, cameras and action.

Even with all the perks above i would not give up the surface of the earth for the dark space though.

Dreams can be a hard Nut to crack...


I must admit: making dreams come through is  hard.  Living in an enviroment like ours where there is too much for too many, but few people hoarding all that much resources it can also be very discouraging. so many young people try so hard to get into the labour market and then try so hard to get out of it once in.

The ancient mould of getting a degree or two and getting a good job... doesn't really cut it these days since almost everyone in the labour market has a degree, doesn't it make any sense for you to stand out in some way?

As much as it feels like things are not right or you do not have enough to make your dreams happen, there is only one important fuel required of you: PASSION. It is the fuel that keeps you going when that required capital ain't forth coming or when doors of potential are slammed in your face.

A word of advice to you no matter how bad things look, keep your dreams alive in your heart & mind cos it will always give you hope; secondly spend 40-70% of your time everyday thinking and doing at least a few things about that dream and watch the power of positive attraction help you make that dream a reality.

na my own be that.

Top 5 Record Labels in Nigeria.

12 years ago i was never a fan of the then mediocre Nigerian Music industry. Somewhere along the line their was a subtle revolution in the industry which saw us getting liberated from the NTA like mould which the industry was forced into over the years. Back in the days when we had the likes of SONY, and other international record companies things were fine especially for artist like Fela who its was said of that were it not for the life the legend led he would have been amongst the richest artist in the world as at the peak of his career.
Today the industry has grown in leaps and bounds, artists fall broadly into two key categories, the commecially conscious artistes and producers and the evergreen artists and producers (Asa, Cobhams). But like JayZ said the numbers don't lie. Not every one in our generation giveas a sh&t bout the quality of music they shake their rumps to. So the following list without out disrespect to the members and the independent artists should give you an insight into the major players in order of public appeal and number of past hit albums:

  1. Kennis Music (Remedies,2face, Edris Abdul Kereem, Kenny saint brown, Azadus...)
  2. Trybe Records (Eldee, da trybe, sasha, 2shotz, timi, blaise, freestyle, kaboom, dr sid etc.)
  3. Mohits Records (D'banj, Wande Coal, Dr. Sid)
  4. Storm Records (Dare (*then) Naeto C, Sasha)
  5. Chocolate City (M.I, Jesse Jagz, iceprince)
*Now pls don't misunderstand me, this is in terms of number of hit artistes they have released in the last 15 years.
Now what do you all think.

M.I quits Music: PR stunt or True Story

I have struggled for almost a week with stories of M.I leaving music for acting. As much as i believe in the full exploitation of artistic brands, it bothers me: one because i have been a fan from the very beginning, two because i had the rare privilege to work as part of his PR team back in the days. The following statement has further escalated the rumors:

“I think its time for me to try something new, I’ve loved music all my life but its time to try something new. Acting is something I’ve always had a passion for and I think its time for me to tap into that area…”
Haven given the whole idea some thought, (though it may be a fact that he was in a movie) i couldn't help but think of artistes like kanye west and 5ocents who have been known to stretch creative limits to stand out. My honest opinion is this: " as much as i would like to believe the stories, i still think a greater part of  rumors is a publicity stunt for the upcoming album"

whipping willow's hair...


apparently genes carry a lot more than physical human attributes. A few months ago we celebrated the debut of Will Smith's son Jaden Smith on the entertainment in the movie Karate Kid. We ain't even over the movie yet and we have WILLOW SMITH a 9year old daughter to the Power couple (Will & Jada) being signed to JayZ's ROC NATION record label. Willow's first single 'whip my hair' is pwetty hot right now.

She was interview by Ryan Seacrest recently:

Beyonce's Birthday Island


Apparently the best birthday gift to give your woman now is no longer diamonds but wait for it: an ISLAND. Well as beyonce turned 29 a few days ago and the gifts came pouring in, we heard of Lady Gaga's interesting  gift to Beyonce which was a diamond whip and then people were like: O yeah? Gaga just outdid Jay. But in his Royal Flyness after like he put it in his own words in Hot Toddy: "Upgrading to King Louis the Thirteenth" by having Queen B in his Life, Jay-z bought his Queen an ISLAND for her birthday.

As much as i love Jayz ...i have to say he has just made things pretty difficult for young dudes like me self by raising the bar on best birthday gifts.
Check out the Island:

::KoKo Mobile::

As far as brand marketing is concerned in Nigeria, no single celebrity has been able to fully maximize their brand like Mr. Endowed.

After a series of TV commercials he came out with the koko water idea, then with his collaboration came koko mansion. Well at this point the rumors which started some time ago and made real by his Music videos is about to become a reality. Word on the wire is that D'banj will launch KOKO MOBILE in collaboration with Globacom Nigeria Ltd.

I guess we have to keep our fingers crossed.

White Collar S02

After Prison break this series currently ranks as my second favorite. Its amazing fusion of criminal investigation, humor, Style and Intelligence simply makes you long for more. As at the time of this post i have seen 7 episodes of the second season and i just can't get enough. This series is one i definately want to get on DVD worth every minute of my time.

What makes this series different from other criminal investigation series is that for a change we get to appreciate criminal investigation from the mind of the criminal and best of all the resulting effect of the LAW and aCriminal working together. Its definately a must watch a huge G stamp!

Notting Hill Carnival 2010- 29th-30th Aug, 2010- Safety Tips

  • If you see an unattended bag or package please report it to the nearest Police Officer or a member of the Public Safety team immediately.
  • Arrange to meet friends and family before entering the Notting Hill Carnival area. Have a set meeting place in case you lose family or friends.
  • Ensure arrangements for your return journey before leaving for the Notting Hill Carnival.
  • Go with the flow of the crowd. Keep aware, pickpockets will be attracted to the large crowds
  • Don’t bring your valuables or wear expensive jewellery.
  • Keep your belongings with you at all times.
  • Don’t carry too much cash or credit cards.
  • To avoid congestion, arrive and leave early.
  • Drink Plenty of Water.
  • We recommend you use a disposable camera.

>>Big Brother 5 Allstars

its exactly 7 days to the start of season 5 of the No.1 hit reality TV show. If you enjoyed season 4 (The revolution) you best get set for season 5. There were no official auditions this time around as the 5th season would see past housemates welcomed back into the house.

I.K the Nigerian OAP who anchored the 4th season has been confirmed for the 5th season, which would see the winner walking away with $200,000. Asides from this facts very little has been revealed about any twists as has been the practice in the past. But it has been announced by Biola Alabi of mnet that viewers would be able to access at least 2 different feeds of the show using the OK button.

Well what can i say?... we simple can't wait for July 18th, 2010. I intend to keep you updated here.

One day -Eldee New Video

Eldee the Don has delivered another surgicaly composed video for the track: One Day. Nice feel to the video with alot of industry celebrities. Enjoy it:


Deaths over Worldcup.



Somali Islamists killed two people and arrested over a dozen others for watching the World Cup on Television. On Sunday and Monday, the militants from the Hizbul Islam group raided houses in the Mogadishu district of Somalia, which resulted in 2 deaths and 35 arrests.

Hizhul Islam and Al Shabaab groups control a large amount of the region and enforce a strict interpretation of Islam which bans sports, music and dancing. This is the first time that the World Cup has been held in South Africa, and some Somali residents have continued to watch the event regardless, using makeshift satellites and tuning into local FM stations.
