NBC Restricts Lil Kesh’s ‘Shoki Remix’ Airplay to between 10PM and 5AM

Standard

ne of the hottest songs of 2014 by newcomer Lil Kesh, “Shoki rmx” ft Davido & Olamide,  is once again in the news for its ongoing issues with the Nigerian Broadcasting Authority (NBC).

In recent reports by Bellanaija, NBC has now placed a restriction on the time of airplay for the song. In a memo sent to all radio stations by NBC, the song can only be played between 10PM and 5AM due to the high number of foul impressions and obscene representations.

It can be recalled that towards the end of last year, this particular song was reported to have been banned by NBC for lewdness. The media adviser of the NBC who spoke at a press briefing then, said, “the song ‘Shoki’ which is a Yoruba slang for ‘quickie’ has spread to other African countries and everybody is singing what they don’t understand, even my two year old daughter came to my room and just started muttering ‘ahh shoki’, its a scary experience, so we banned it”.

This led to widespread protests especially on social media.

However, hours after, NBC released a press statement, denying banning the song that they has only sanctioned a radio station for playing the song during “family time”

 ‘We at the National Broadcasting Commission can confirm there was no such ban. A club version of the song cannot be played on radio. The club version contains vulgar lyrics, which was played around 9am, which is considered as ‘family time’. There is a broadcast code to follow by every broadcast station and this station failed to comply. This said station has been sanctioned for playing a club version during family time. We at the NBC did not ban ‘Shoki’- by Lil Kesh. We simply asked the suitable broadcast version to be played on the radio.’…

Fashola Criticizes Jonathan Over Lagos Speech

Standard
BabaTunde Fashola

BabaTunde Fashola

Lagos State governor, Babatunde Fashola, criticized President Goodluck Jonathan’s yesterday’s speech delivered in Lagos during the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rally.

It would be recalled that GEJ’s speech caused controversial reactions. Some called it truly passionate and persuasive, while the others tagged it as “full of mediocrity”.

In particular, the All Progressives Congress (APC) lambasted the President alleging he was only shedding crocodile tears.

Fashola, APC card holder, was among those dissatisfied with Jonathan’s performance saying it was obvious that he could no longer rule Nigeria, Premium Times reports.

Speaking 8 January, Thursday, in Edo State capital, Benin, governor Fashola said that throughout his long speech Jonathan failed to explain what he had actually done for the country and what he would do if re-elected in February.

See Fashola’s opinion below:

“Today, you have listened to a vice presidential candidate telling you in 29 minutes many things you will never hear at a rally because the time for such discussions doesn’t exist for many Nigerian want to interrogate people making empty promises.

“But we chose to be different because we are bustling with ideas. We know ideas can change things. He (Osinbajo) has spoken to you for 29 minutes. He has been on this assignment for only three weeks and he has discussed power with you, he has discussed employment with you, he has discussed agriculture with you, he has discussed welfare scheme, health care, youth development with you without reading any speech. He has been there for three weeks only and he has not been yet elected.

“Now what is on the other side (PDP), because I spent about an hour listening to the president in my state? For almost the same period I saw a very angry president. I saw a president who is lamenting about people judging his performance and blaming all those who ruled before him, forgetting that he has been on this job for six years.

“And he kept saying ‘they say we don’t have a plan’ and for almost 45 minutes he did not reveal a plan on security, he did not reveal a plan on corruption. I listened to him. Now after six years without being able to articulate what he has done and what he will do but blaming everybody and forgetting that he is the Commander-in-Chief. If the kitchen is becoming too hot as it’s becoming obvious he must get out of it.

“This election is going to be about job approval. It is not about where you come from; it is not about how young he is; it is job approval after six years. Are you happy with your situation?

“So if after six years he has not been able to explain to you what he is doing with your time, with your resource – 52 % revenue formula, do you want to continue another four years.”

Fashola, who spoke at the event after APC’s Vice Presidential candidate Yemi Osinbajo, said that Osinbajo, unlike the PDP’s  seniors, had managed to explain his party’s agenda just 3 weeks after having been named a running mate.

“I know this man. He was AG of Lagos State when I was Chief of Staff to Governor Tinubu. People have introduced him as a pastor, yes he is. But he is also a professor of law. He became a professor at 33 or so. So he has taught many lawyers and he still teaches. He also goes to court and he still preaches religion. That is the versatility of the man.

“What many people do not know, which the PDP people agreed – God bless the soul of Late Umaru Yar’Adua, who said the election that brought him to power was flawed they rigged everything that was ‘riggable’.

“It was Professesor Osinbajo that challenged all of us saying ‘we can’t let this thing go without a challenge. Let us go and go get forensic expert because I believe that the ballot papers was thumb-printed not by legitimate voters and he brought somebody and one by one it showed where either the same person voted 100 times… they used palm kernel. That is the capacity of the man who wants to be your vice president.”

It would be noted that Jonathan touched upon the issues of insurgency, corruption education and others, during his yesterday’s speech.

The politician blasted the opposition accusing him of not having plans for development of Nigeria. He insisted that his administration’s achievements were the proof that they always had the working plan.

2015 Election: Buhari Denies Arab Countries Sponsorship

Standard

All Progressives Congress (APC), Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, has denied any financial link with any Arab country in aid of his electioneering.

Also on Wednesday, Buhari’s campaign organisation made some readjustments in its structure by appointing Garba Shehu, a media aide to former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, as the new Head of Media and Publicity for the campaign team.
Shehu will now take over from a former Lagos State Commissioner for Information, Mr. Dele Alake, who has been operating in that capacity.

Buhari’s denial came through his Chief of Staff, Col. Hamid Ali (rtd), who spoke to journalists in Abuja on Wednesday during an interactive session with several groups supporting the Buhari presidential bid. 

When asked to confirm whether Buhari would also be funded by some Arab countries, as it was reported, Ali said: “It is not true. I am part of the campaign; I am in the centre of it and I don’t know of any Arab man that has spoken to us. So it is untrue, it is false.”

Speaking also on the controversy over Buhari’s academic qualifications, Ali said the former head of state went through the military training and got admitted into schools in the UK, adding that if Buhari does not have the required qualifications, he would not in the first place be admitted as a cadet.

“So, from that time on, he has gone through so many courses and so many training, and I am surprised that today at 72 somebody is talking about the issue of certificate, after he has run for three presidential elections, and this is the fourth one.

“So, why is it today that someone is talking about credentials? What did INEC use to clear him before now?” he queried.

Meanwhile, the various campaign support groups under the aegis of the Buhari Support Organisation (BSO) on Wednesday said their fund-raising efforts, known as Buhari Crowd-Funding Initiative had so far yielded a total of N118, 702, 265. 36.

While addressing the gathering, the convener of the meeting of the Buhari Support Groups, Ali, said the tracking of the campaign fund being raised by the groups is in keeping with Buhari’s avowed commitment to accountability and transparency.

He explained that the sum of N54 million was realised as at December 24, 2014, while an additional N64,702,265.36 was contributed to the fund as at Wednesday.
Ali further said the intention of the interactive session was to examine the challenges being encountered by the support groups in the fields and how best to achieve their target of installing an APC government at the centre.

“As the campaign enters its crucial stage, just about five weeks to the February 14 presidential election, it is important we review the activities of over 85 Buhari support groups that are operating under the umbrella of the Buhari Support Organisation with over eight million individual members across Nigeria, going by our records.

“We do not have the budget in the sense that in the Buhari’s camp, we believe that our goodwill will work for us. We need this money because if we have to go to the press, we need money for advertisements, so we want as much money as we can gather. We don’t want to sit down and say we want to spend N21 billion because we don’t have that money but we want to spend what we can have in our hands for the progress of the campaign,” he said.

When asked to tell Nigerians whether the campaign team would rely only on the money they raised to carry out the campaign, Ali said: “Buhari has said that he will organise a launch to get funds, purposely from the lower people because he wants the commitment of the people and to remember when he gets to the office that it is the sweat of the people that got him there and by that he will be more committed to serve them.”

He confirmed that the campaign team is also getting money from other sources who might not necessarily buy card before donating to the course, adding that if such money is deposited into the account and the source is known they would also make it known to the public.

“Today’s interactive session with you leaders of various groups supporting the election of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and Prof. Yemi Osinbajo is to give you an update on the progress we have made in our mobilisation work across the country through your patriotic efforts and also to let you know how much we have raised through our crowd funding efforts via sales of BSO cards and direct donations to BSO First Bank Account.

“We salute the courage and commitment of Nigerians across ethnic and religious divides who desire true change and confidence in the ability of Gen. Buhari to provide the leadership that will secure our nation and prosper our people,” he said.
Beyond the assurance of receiving no Arab funding, the campaign organisation re-iterated its resolve to run an issue-based campaign and not engage in personality attack.

At the inauguration of his presidential campaign, President Jonathan had advised his campaign handlers to focus on issue-based campaign devoid of personal attacks on political opponents.

Reacting to Jonathan’s advice, Buhari’s campaign organisation said it was more than pleased to focus the 2015 election campaign on issues.

According to a statement by the Director, Media and Publicity of the campaign organisation, Mallam Garba Shehu, the security challenges have put the Jonathan administration out of its depth, and that the government has run out of ideas.

The APC campaign organisation said the purported improvements of the economy are merely on paper and only reminiscent of George Orwell’s “Animal Farm”.
It said no government could boast of improving the economy when the quality of life for the majority of the citizens is getting rapidly worse.

The statement noted that “you can’t run an economy on unworkable economic thieves that haven’t impacted positively on the lives of Nigerians in practice”.

It wondered how a government that strikes deals with corrupt persons in return for political support should preach about issue-based campaign, adding that on all the issues facing Nigerians, the PDP has failed the citizens.

Shell Set To Compensate Oil Spill Victims

Standard

American Oil giant, Shell  has decided to settle its case with Nigerian individuals and a community affected by its oil spill in order to avoid the  London High Court case which was due to start soon.

The money, £55million in total, will be distributed to the 15,600 Ogoni farmers and fishermen whose lives were devastated by two large Shell oil spills in 2008 and 2009. The locals will no doubt celebrate today as Shell Nigeria announces a £55m settlement.

British banks will start to transfer 600,000 naira into each of the local people’s accounts and the community will be given millions to build health clinics and refurbish its schools.

The settlement, split £35m for individuals and £20m for the community is said to be the largest payout to any African community following environmental damage and the first time that compensation for an oil spill has been paid directly to affected individuals rather than to local leaders.

Riots In The University Of Benin

Standard

Reports just reaching us inform that the University of Benin, Benin City, is currently boiling as students of the institution are rioting, blocking roads and causing severe traffic jam.

Though the cause of the riot is still unknown as at the time of compiling this report; however, a source informed that it might have been as a result of a controversy between the governor of the Edo State, Governor Adams Oshiomhole, and the immediate past Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Godwin Osayuki Oshodin.

“The students are rioting this morning because Governor Oshiomhole demolished the house belonging to the former VC of the school,” the source stated.

Another source stated: “Benin is hot this morning, University of Benin students are rioting, blocking roads, burning cars, buses, and lorries; please, do not go towards that area for now.”

Picture of one of the buses set on fire by Uniben students.

It was gathered that as a result of the students’ riot there was severe traffic gridlock in Benin.

Meanwhile, one of the lecturers of Uniben who spoke on phone with Talkafrica.com, said: “The situation in the University of Benin started yesterday [January 6th, 2015], and escalated today [January 7th, 2015].

“As as I communicating with you on phone, I can confirm to you that there is not just a riot in UNIBEN, but, there is crisis, chaos.

Edo State Governor says:
“But, I must tell you that the issue is not between the students of the University and the state government; rather, this is an issue between the University of Benin and the Edo State Government.”

It was gathered that the disagreement between the students and the state government stemmed from the steps taken by Governor Oshiomhole after the attack of the former vice chancellor.

Another source informed that as at six o’clock this morning the Uniben main gate was already blocked by the student union government and other union activist.

It was gathered that the situation deteriorated when some lecturers of the institution were beaten by some thugs.

The thugs were said to be led by kabaka who is a loyal boy to the Edo state governor.

The same kabaka and his boys led the demolition of the former VC’s house at the Government Reserved Area, GRA, in Benin, the source stated.

This event led to the burning of comrade bus therefore causing the police force to deploy Over 70 armed men with about 20 police vans.

It was also informed that the president of the Students Union Government, SUG, led some students to the banks inside the school beating up security men and removing Oshiomole’s pictures in the banks.

While confirming the rioting, the Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC, posted on it official Facebook page that:

“BENIN-ORE ROAD BLOCKED BY PROTESTING UNIBEN STUDENTS, ALTERNATIVE ROUTES ADVISED.
As a result of protest embarked upon by some students of the University of Benin resulting in total blockade of the Benin-Ore expressway this morning, motorists coming from the Eastern parts of the country are advised to make use of the Benin bye pass to link the Benin-Ore expressway while motorists coming from Lagos to Benin City are advised to make use of the Old Lagos road along Iguobazuwa road by Okada junction or alternatively the Benin bypass to enter Benin city.”

Our Resolutions For Naija Celebs In 2015 – By Etcetera

Standard

In his first article in the new year, singer turned columnist Etcetera comes for 2face, Omotola, Tonto, Stephanie Okerere and others. Read below…

Every January, resolutions are made with conviction, only to be dropped like a hot akarasometime before February as unattainable, or just plain boring. All through last year, we watched our celebrities and critiqued their behaviour. Maybe we shouldn’t have. Maybe we should let them make their own mistakes. Or maybe we should assess celebrity behaviour in 2014 and determine which celebrities could use some suggestions for their New Year’s Resolutions to make 2015 a great year. And that’s just what we’ve done. So Don Jazzy, Cossy, Omosexy and others, listen up.

Afro Candy: We already know what you look like with a pubic haircut. Now can you please get into character as a porn-star. We’ve had enough of the teasers. It is becoming boring already. We want the real deal in 2015. Give us a hit movie that will make headlines and put you on magazine covers. Bare your fangs, shake that floppy ass and make the teenage boys happy.

Cossy: Our advice is twofold: first of all, it’s clearly time to invest in some bra. This should be the year to get those boobs cupped and wrapped up. Secondly, change your hustle. Your personality could be revealing in a talk show: put your mind to it, I am sure great offers will come in.

Baba Suwe: Egbon, we love you and we will always love to see you in as many movies as possible. But are we ever going to see you act without the black paint on your face?

Mr. Ibu: A lot of people make resolutions to lose weight, get strong and buff, quit smoking or drinking in order to become healthier. Is this the year that Mr. Ibu finally hits the gym for a six-pack form?

Pete Edochie: Since the death of Amaleze “The Cat,” one question that has been asked over and over again is when our beloved Pete Edochie is going to shave his beards. Just in case the chief decides to visit a salon this year, please someone should quickly remove the kolanuts and palmwine keg from the table. Yes, you may have to hide those wrappers and hats if we are ever going to see the chief in suit anytime before rapture. We’ll also love to see him play other roles than His Royal Highness, Chief Ohazurumba 1 of Ohaji Egbema Kingdom that he has been playing since the days of “Things Fall Apart.” Sir, we know you can do it.

Don Jazzy: The experimental singing was good for last year but 2015 should be the year of the vocalist. And bros, you have hidden under the shade for too long. The hot babes are crying and the queue is getting too long. Will 2015 finally reveal “Mrs. Don Jazzy?”

Tuface: Your album last year was good but it also revealed the fact that you have lost your vocal strength. It won’t be a bad idea to engage the services of a voice coach in 2015.

Dbanj: Last year wasn’t a good year for you musically. The songs didn’t come out well, especially the collaborations. I’ll suggest you take a total break from music in 2015 and get re-inspired.

Limbuzee: The Zagaza Master, you have really proved to be a promising act in 2014. We hope to hear more from you this new year. The sky is your limit

Omawunmi: You have found the right spot between Highlife, Pop and RnB. You pitched your tent perfectly well in our hearts in 2014. Whatever inspired those beautiful songs is worth holding on to.

Waje: Awww we love you. Your voice is like the sound of the morning spring. But ermmm please leave the skimpy dresses to the peperempes.

Jim Iyke: No matter what people say about him, naija movie scene has been boring without him and the drama that comes with him. Jim, we will be happy to see you back in the spotlight this year, making movies and reminding us that you’re a fine actor. It would be nice to see you star in your own movie, maybe with Nadia.

Miss Sindodo: After a long spell away, you bounced back in 2014 and we are glad about your “amazing” recovery. But your black knuckles and over-bleached skin call for immediate attention this 2015.
One movie we will love to see made in Nollywood this year is “How Stella Snatched My Husband” starring Doris and produced by Daniel.

Halima Abubakar: Acting shouldn’t be a do or die affair. Try other professions or better still, take a professional course in acting.
Omosexy: Everyone says you are arrogant. This should be the year to make a better impression.

Stephanie Okereke: When are we going to finally start seeing your movies for real and not just seeing them “Through The Glass?”
Olisa: You have held the crown as the oldest bachelor for too long. It is time to hand over.

Tonto: What do you really do? It is becoming more difficult to tell these days. It’s a tough industry, we know. But we’re begging you: please stop jumping from one thing to another. Getting into character as a role model does require a bit of focus.

Happy new year everyone!
