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 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.
