102  Forum / The Buzz Central / OMG! Letter Bomb Meant For Okonjo- Iweala diffused!! on: 4-02-2013 08:03 PM
Parceled explosive for Okonjo- Iweala diffused

Two alleged Improvised Explosive Devices (IEAs) were Monday diffused by the police anti-bomb squad. They were planted directly in front of the post office in Area 10, Garki, Abuja.



The parcel was wrapped and addressed to the Minister of Finance.

The Post Master General, (PMG) of the Federation, Mr. Ibrahim Mori- Baba, said the parcel was planted last Friday by a man he described as insane. He said he could not confirm if it was a bomb or otherwise.

He said the security operative told reporters that they would do their job and determine if what exploded was a bomb.

Mori – Baba said:

“What happened was that on Friday, somebody just came, we couldn’t understand whether that person is a sane person or not

“He wanted to go to the post office but unfortunately for him, the gate was closed and he couldn’t have access to our building and he left the so called parcel by the main gate. I call it so called parcel because, any parcel that could got through the process, there are processes that have to be done and these include weighing of the parcel and then determine how much the sender will pay.

108  Forum / The Buzz Central / Picture Of Obama Shooting A Gun Released (LOOK) a on: 3-02-2013 02:57 PM

Gun control is more than a political issue for President Obama.

The commander-in-chief, in a picture snapped last August, showed his mastery of a shotgun while skeet shooting during a Camp David getaway.

The White House released the photo Saturday, possibly to muzzle critics who suggested Obama was posturing when he talked about target shooting in an interview with The New Republic magazine.

The picture of Obama shows him with a literally smoking gun, its barrel pressed against his left shoulder as he pulls the trigger. It was taken on his 51st birthday.

Obama spokesman Jay Carney had no comment Saturday on the timing of the photo’s release, just two days before Obama heads to Minneapolis to discuss his gun control proposals with local law enforcement officials.

But critics, including the National Rifle Association, charged Obama used the interview to convince gun owners that the President was a kindred spirit despite his gun control initiative.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) had suggested the President’s claim of skeet shooting was way off target.

“I think he should invite me to Camp David, and I’ll go skeet shooting with him and I bet I’ll beat him,” she said.

But the President — in jeans, ear protectors, sunglasses and a blue golf shirt — shows good form in the Aug. 4 handout picture.

“Up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time,” Obama said in the interview that started the flap.

The President drew a sharp distinction between hunting or target shooting — and the gun problem afflicting the nation’s cities.

“Part of being able to move this forward is understanding the reality of guns in urban areas are very different from the realities of guns in rural areas,” Obama said.

“Advocates of gun control need to do a little more listening than they do sometimes.”

After the Newtown, Conn., school massacre, the administration proposed a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.

The NRA and other pro-gun organizations are staunchly opposed to the Obama proposals.

109  Forum / The Buzz Central / Wizkid, Eme,Banky Quarrel (the Inside Story) on: 3-02-2013 02:45 PM
The split between Banky W and Wizkid, inside sources say, resulted from an alleged high difference in what Banky W gets from revenues made by the young star, Wizkid.

The ‘injustice’, according to what 247naijagossip.com gathered, has been bothering Wizkid until he summoned the courage to ask for an improved contract from Banky W, which hit him (Banky) by surprise.

“You know Wizkid is the backbone of EME music label. The boy (Wizkid) feels that Banky W has been milking too much from him with the large chunk of what Banky W takes from what the boy makes.

Lets see an example of EME’s costs & income ( for Wizkid)

EME signs Wizkid and pays the following

-Advance to Wizkid or equivalent
-They pay for the music videos (2 to 5 million per video)
-They pay for all radio & tv promotion (millions of naira)
-They pay for all online marketing and promotion (feauring on bellanaija.com alone is a 6 to 7 figure amount)
-They pay for all air travel costs to shows, award shows, interviews etc.
-They pay for club dj marketing
-They pay for street distribution
-Lets not talk about the nigerian factor & the amount of “brown envelopes” EME has to give out annually to “oil the wheels of success”..some perhaps that Wizkid doesn’t know about.

Its commendable the amount of talent Wizkid has but without the investment of EME in the early days, the influence of the label owners & the business acumen of the label, Wizkid could still have ended up successful, but nowhere near how successful he is now.

    EME TAKES 50 PERCENT OF EVERYTIN WIZKID GETS, OSAGIE USED TO TAKE 25 PERCENT AND WIZKID 25. BUT WIZ SAW HOW DAVIDO WAS POPPING INDEPENDENTLY AND MAKING MONIES, SO HE TOOK MATTERS IN HIS OWN HANDS, TOOK OSAGIE OUT, GOT GODWIN TOM, GIVES HIM 10 PERCENT, HE IS TRYING TO REDUCE EME’S 50 PERCENT BUT THEY ARE ACTING UP COS THEY SHOOT HIS VID AND ALL, AND ALL EXPENSES ARE ON THEM. WIZ IS NOT HAPPY. THEY ARE OWING HIM MONIES, FROM THE PEPSI DEAL AND OTHER DEALS. WIZ HAS TAKEN MATTERS INTO HIS OWN HANDS, HE IS PLANNING TO RELEASE AN ALBUM THIS YEAR, BUT THE EME CALENDER IS DISRUPTING HIM COUPLED WITH THE FACT THAT EME DOES NOT WANT TO BULGE ON THE PERCENTAGE AND THE MONIES THEY OWE HIM. THIS IS BUSINESS. WIZ MIGHT LEAVE, BANKY IS GETTING PEOPLE TO TALK TO HIM. BANKY IS NOT THE OWNER OF EME, JUST A DIRECTOR, THERE ARE OTHER PPLE INCLUDING SEGUN AND CO

111  Forum / The Buzz Central / BIG BOY!!! Ice Prince Demands $1M For Globacom Endorsement Deal on: 3-02-2013 12:34 AM
Ice Prince has turned down an endorsement deal from major telecom company Globacom, NET has reliably learnt.

Insiders told Nigerian Entertainment Today, during the week, that the rapper was approached with a mouth watering deal to become the brand’s latest ambassador because of his recent successes -the release his first official single ‘Oleku‘, his many local and international awards, and his bestselling debut album ‘Everybody Loves Ice Prince’ in 2011.

But Panshak Zamani doesn’t come cheap. We’re told he’s asking for a whooping sum of $1m (N157,000,000) or no deal.

‘He was serious, he knows his worth and knows they can afford it so he turned the deal down‘, our insider at GLO who wants to remain anonymous tells NET.

Most GLO ambassadors are paid within the N10-N20m range, with D’banj and Psquare being the rare exceptions. Psquare got N240m for a four year deal, as reported by NET exclusively on June 30, 2010

It remains uncertain if GLO is upping the figures for the Chocolate city rapper. But if they concede to Ice’s demands, he’ll become the rapper with the biggest endorsement deal ever. But Ice Prince is cool with that (no pun intended). In the last 20 months, the rapper has become the highest-earning Nigerian rapper, with revenue sources including concert fees and endorsements (he inked a deal with LG in 2012) as well as non-music related deals no one is wiling to talk about.

The rapper’s management has denied the telecoms approached their team. ‘We didn’t get any offer from them, I just confirmed from my team, there’s been no offer’, a rep for Ice Prince says.

A rep for GLO, Charles declined commenting, stating that it was not in his place to do so.

Meanwhile Ice is now ‘top priority’ at his record label Chocolate City, a position which was for many shared by rapper M.I and younger brother Jesse Jagz. M.I seems to be focused on Loopy Records, setting up an office in Gbagada, Lagos and working to build his own community of talents.. Jesse hasn’t released materials since his debut album ’Jagz of all Trade‘ in 2009.

Zamani has also positioned himself – releasing the Hausa-influenced hit single ‘Aboki’ and winning the hearts of the rich, influential Northern Nigerian elites, including Ministers, Governors and members of the Royal family.

‘Jesse Jagz used to appeal to the North, but he’s not released an album or hit song since his 2009 album. Chocolate City had to fill up that position, Ice Prince has stepped in and has done so perfectly with ‘Aboki‘.’, and insider at Chocolate City tells us.

Ice Prince is now also building a team of his; his former group back in Jos ‘GRIP Boiz‘ has relocated to Lagos to link up with him. His last set of singles have been produced by his buddy Chopstix, rather than usual suspect Jesse Jagz.

“His name is Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun. But in nightclubs, on radio stations and music channels across Africa, the name he is known by is Wizkid. The 22-year-old singer-songwriter has quickly become one of Nigeria’s hottest musicians.

He recently signed up to the Konvict label owned by US-Senegalese superstar Akon. But it was not always like that. He started singing in church at the age of 11. At the time, his parents had very different plans for him.

When he visited BBC Africa’s studios in London earlier this week, Komla Dumor asked him how his family has reacted to his success.”

113  Forum / The Buzz Central / Whitney Houston’s Daughter Gets Engaged to her Brother on: 30-01-2013 10:35 AM

Bobbi Kristina Brown isn’t letting her family’s drama get in the way of her happiness. Whitney Houston’s daughter is said to be engaged to her “adopted brother” Nick Gordon, Us Weekly reports.

Brown, 19, was recently photographed in Atlanta holding hands and kissing Gordon, the 22-year-old man whom Houston took in 10 years ago after his mother was unable to care for him. According to the magazine, Brown has been wearing a sizeable diamond engagement ring that was once worn by her mother.

“The situation is beyond sad,” a source told Us. “Whitney never formally adopted Nick, but he lived with her and Bobbi Kristina from the age of 12 and they were raised like brother and sister. Nick came from a really bad background.” In addition to their alleged plans to wed, the couple is reportedly living together in one of Houston’s Atlanta properties. “Bobbi Kristina is still so vulnerable since her mother passed away,” the source added. “But Nick has become like her rock.” Not surprisingly, Brown’s family is said to be “really upset” about the young couple’s blossoming romance.

Namely, Houston’s mother has voiced her disapproval. A friend of Cissy Houston told TMZ that the family matriarch said “what they’re doing is incestuous.” She is reportedly afraid Gordon is a bad influence on Brown, and wants him evicted. After rumors that the two are dating surfaced earlier this month, Gordon took to Twitter to slam haters. “Yea we got a little closer and what!” he wrote. He later added, “For the stupid ppl out there, she gave birth to 1 child. And she trusted me with Everything!” On Wednesday, Gordon told ABCNews.com that he and Brown are “just close – just going through her mom’s passing and grieving together.”

During her interview with Oprah Winfrey on last Sunday’s “Oprah: The Next Chapter,” Brown was seen wearing the alleged engagement ring as she spoke about her famous mother’s passing. “I’m doing as good as I possibly can at this point. I’m just trying to keep going,” she said. “I can sing her music, but to hear it now, I can’t. I can hear her voice telling me, ‘Keep moving, baby. I got you.’ She’s always with me. I can always feel her with me. She used to always say, ‘Do you need me?’ And I said, ‘I always need you.’”

118  Forum / The Buzz Central / I’m Enjoying Bachelorhood Again – Actor, Saidi Balogun on: 28-01-2013 05:48 PM
Popular actor, Saidi Balogun needs no further introduction in the movie industry. He has remained one of the most popular faces among the thespians.

Balogun, who spent most of his formative years in the Northern part of the country, said he is not resting on his oars.
In a recent interview, the actor speaks on his relationship and life after being divorced.
At 46, you should be getting tired of staying single. You once said that you don’t plan to quit bachelorhood then, are you planning to remarry now?
I don’t want to talk about my marital life, for now. I would really love to talk about my job because that’s what I am particular about as far as I’m concerned.
I am enjoying bachelorhood more now because it gives me enough time to think deeply on how I can better the lot of those who are looking up to me. I also want to concentrate on my new movies.
I have a girlfriend that I love and respect so much, but I would like to keep it like that for now.
Is your girlfriend also in the movie industry?
There you go again. I don’t want to drag her into this interview.
Are you scared to talk about her because your former girl friend, Funke Adesiyan, was an actress and the relationship ended on a sad note?
Some issues are better kept undisclosed, so that you don’t raise another dust that would take many months to settle. As you can see, I am doing fine. I don’t want to talk on who was that or when did that happen and to who.
So Fathia Balogun’s chapter has been closed in your life?
I knew you were heading for that question when you started playing around with your questions. Anyway, I love the way you have coined it, but the fact is that I won’t talk about Fathia.
I will just love to say no comment, if I am permitted to use that sentence.
