5  Forum / Sports / How to Bet on Soccer on: 2-05-2021 10:05 AM

Soccer, unlike the other four major professional sports, can be bet on all year. People are still playing soccer somewhere, from the English Premier League to the Bundesliga, and from the MLS to the occasional World Cup. This is music to the ears of the most committed sports bettors. The abundance of soccer that floods the betting market, on the other hand, can get bettors in trouble.
Soccer is a special sport to bet on because it offers a variety of bet styles not found in other sports. We highlight the most successful winning strategies in soccer betting and include tips and tactics for using these bets to your advantage in this article.

Betting Strategies for Soccer Betting
Choose High-Quality Odds
To make money betting on soccer, the rule is to collect the best betting odds. You will increase the chances of winning when the betting odds are greater than the possible outcome. Since there are so many betting providers nowadays, they all tend to provide the best odds in order to draw new customers. You will guarantee your victory if you know how to choose the best odds.

Choose Betting Account Wisely
The majority of betting sites do not charge a fee for new players to enter. As a result, having accounts with different providers would be advantageous. Each platform's betting odds can vary, so you should compare them all and pick the best one. For beginners, Betway provides the best experience and appealing odds.

Cash Flow Management
This is the first thing you must take care of. When betting on any game, you should make meticulous financial preparations. Never put your life savings on the line. Often set a betting limit and stick to it.

Do Thorough Research
Obtaining betting odds from service providers is beneficial, but you must still possess your own abilities. When betting on soccer, you must research all aspects of the game, including the players, the field, the teams, injury reports, news, tournaments, and much more. You will gain enough experience over time to formulate your winning betting odds. This is also beneficial when betting on other sporting events.

Practice Sober Betting
When betting on soccer, you should still be realistic. Never choose a team or a player because you like him or have had good luck in recent games. Check the player's or team's facts, current knowledge, and type before placing your bets. When you bet emotionally, you risk losing your entire bankroll. The betting industry is vast, and this is just the tip of the iceberg. You may have gotten a glimpse of soccer betting with this guide, but you will need to learn further in order to bet with real money.

Safety First
The emergence of hundreds of new betting platforms could spell doom for betting rookies. In as much as the industry is no longer associated with all vices of fraud, cyber criminals are always lurking, and it is the responsibility of your betting site to guarantee user safety. Pick a reputable bookmaker like Betway and enjoy the experience.

Many have been demanding evidence in the allegation of Baba Ijesha's involvement in a molestation case against a 14 year old minor who he allegedly assaulted when she was 7.
In the course of last week, we obtained a footage of Baba Ijesha confessing and pleading to the crime. But the time has finally come for the main CCTV footage recorded to be released which detailed the actor's exploit on the teenage minor when he visited his industry colleague, Princess the comedian. Baba Ijesha was backed by some of his industry colleagues who demanded to see the CCTV evidence of the incident, we now have the CCTV footage below. Check it out.

9  Forum / Business / 5 Effective Ways to Increase YouTube Engagement on: 30-04-2021 11:43 AM
It's no secret that having a video presence on the internet has become an important tool in social and business interactions. Regularly, videos, whether viral or not, are the most shared type of social content, eclipsing infographics, curated tweets, and traditional blogs. As a result, it is critical to developing skills in engaging potential audiences with insightful and shareable content.
When you do YouTube interaction correctly, you create content that encourages feedback and shares, and you develop an authentic relationship with your viewers. Increasing participation can be done in a variety of ways to increase youtube views, making short videos, and so on.
The focus of this discussion is on the top five methods that have proven to be successful.

Nail the Thumbnail
The thumbnail for your video is undoubtedly the most significant factor in a viewer's decision to watch it, particularly if they're on their phone. It's the first thing viewers see while searching for videos, together with the title. It's also not sufficient to use a single interesting image from your video.
You should personalise your thumbnails to provide a clear, compelling picture that informs potential viewers about your video while also drawing them in. The following are the most important factors to consider when making a thumbnail:

To pique the audience's interest, include a test in the thumbnail.
Use the rule of third, which is a fundamental photography principle.
Always choose the most appropriate and convenient tools for you.

This is the most key aspect in increasing youtube views. So make sure to nail this before anything else.

Encourage Likes, Shares and Comments
Engagement is a two-way street that necessitates both your and your viewers' participation. Given that video views, likes, shares, and comments are among the metrics used to gauge interaction, you must do everything possible to encourage your viewers to take these acts.
Since most YouTube viewers will quickly move on to another video after seeing yours, it's no surprise that most videos receive very few likes and shares in comparison to their views. Since posting takes more time and not everyone is inclined to do it by choice, the amount of comments is even lower. With these details in mind, you should invite your audience to like, share, and comment on your content.

Most YouTubers request their viewers to like and share their videos, as well as leave feedback with questions, ideas for potential videos, or suggestions for change, between the first and last few seconds of their videos. You can either follow in their footsteps or come up with a unique way to increase youtube views.

Employ basic SEO and marketing principles
Search Engine Optimization is the first thing that new marketers practise on their path to marketing mastery. This is the opportunity to use organic search traffic to improve the volume and quantity of traffic to every marketing method.
In the case of YouTube SEO, it makes it easier to find your videos on YouTube searches, and the more they appear in searches, the more views they obtain. The three SEO tactics to help you get more people to watch your videos:

Increase the length of video descriptions beyond a few sentences.
Because of the fierce rivalry on YouTube, you'll need to promote your videos if you want them to get enough views and interaction.
Spend some time doing keyword research before you post any video to guarantee that your videos rank higher for the keywords you're addressing.

Mastering the aforementioned skill may be extremely beneficial. In reality, it might be the best substitute for “buy youtube subscribers”.

Post Content Consistently and with Quality
Being a dependable and reliable source of knowledge is a surefire way to build and sustain commitment. Keep your audience coming back for more once you've built a following. Post frequently to keep your content relevant, current, and, most importantly, useful.
But understand that If you want to be a well-known YouTuber, don't just post regularly. Maintaining a daily and reliable posting schedule will help you use timing to make your viewers look forward to your next video. As a result, your fans will eagerly anticipate your next posting day so they can see your latest videos. This will also increase youtube views.
Quality still wins out over quantity in promotions. A thousand videos won't help you much if they're poorly edited and of poor quality. You must ensure that you do not disappoint if you have built a reputation for providing accurate information. Always remember that there are thousands of other vloggers vying for the same audience as you.

Create an Identity for the channel and Respond to the Viewers
The most key point to remember is that the viewers did not tune in to a channel to have different types of videos. They want the channel to be associated with a specific genre. The channels may indeed be reaction channels, tech channels, food channels, and so on. But not a combination unless the channel is built around that definition. To wrap it up, create an overall identity for the channel.
Secondly, you want to make sure that the form of content you create is in line with what your audience needs. Start by discovering your audience and what kind of content they want from you, whether you're writing a blog post or making a video.
YouTube is an excellent platform for generating interest in the business or concept. The five tips mentioned above are the most effective ways to increase video engagement. But keep in mind that you must learn to adapt to the changes that occur.

14  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Bandit Leader Granted Amnesty, Auwal Daudawa Returns To Kidnapping on: 29-04-2021 07:14 PM

Auwal Daudawa, the little-known bandit leader in Zamfara State, who shot to prominence after masterminding the abduction of over 300 students in neighbouring Katsina State has gone back to the trenches, less than three months after his celebrated repentance.

A security source and two other sources close to the bandit confirmed to Daily Trust on Wednesday that Daudawa has relocated to one of the forests, near the border with Katsina.

The middle-aged bandit coordinated the mass abduction of the students of Government Secondary School Kankara, on December 12, 2020, the first of such abduction by any criminal group outside Boko Haram in the North-East.

About two months later, Daudawa was paraded before the governor in Gusau, where he proclaimed his decision to be a changed man.

Daudawa and five of his lieutenants surrendered 20 AK 47 rifles, ammunition and a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) launcher, during the ceremony.

Sources familiar with Daudawa’s latest decision told our reporter that he packed out his family and his lieutenants back to Jaja forest in Zurmi Local Government on Monday.

“He called one of his contacts in Gusau to inform him that he had arrived at the forest and decided to pick up arms again. He did not inform anybody before he left,” one of the sources said.

Daudawa was said to have been frustrated by the lack of proper engagement after he had laid down arms.

He and members of his gang who repented were housed in a government chalet for weeks before a house was secured for him in Damba, in the outskirts of Gusau, to move in with his family.

“His upkeep was being shouldered by the government. I don’t know what it was he needed. Perhaps his tall expectations were not met,” one security source in Gusau disclosed.

His action, analysts say, is a major setback for the controversial peace deal and amnesty for bandits being championed by the Zamfara State Governor, Hon. Bello Matawalle.

It would be interesting to find out that the victim's foster mum is also the popular female comedianne, popularly known as Princess.
In a newly released instagram video, Princess narrated the ordeal of training baba Ijesha as a young man while trying to secure admission into UNILAG for him and allowed him to penetrate into her inner circle - something she said she never does because of her extremely paranoid nature. It so happened that she left him with the kids for barely 3 minutes to go escort her visiting sister out of the apartment gate where she stays before "Baba Ijesha" took advantage of the situation to unleash on the young 7 years old girl then.
The girl suffered serious psychological effects and was performing badly in school. The biological parents of the child believed it was a spiritual problem and kept praying/fasting for the past 7 years. Princess, however felt something was off and decided to take steps in finding out the truth. This led the now 14 years old girl to confess that "Baba Ijesha" was the one that molested her.

They setup a CCTV at their home and invited the actor over to discuss a movie project, which was how he was caught, you can watch the full video below:

Something you should know about children molesters:

1. Paedophiles are on the increase today more than at any other time in history.
2. There are both male and female paedophiles.
3. They have no shame and have no conscience.
4. A paedophile does not know whether the victim is his daughter or her son. They are like dogs.
5. They are good pretenders. They can be doing one thing and the moment they see you coming they quickly change to another thing.
6. Most paedophiles are family members or other close acquaintances. Watch out who you have as your driver, house boy, house girl, nanny, home lesson teacher, that family friend you leave your kids with when you are away from home, your neighbour, colleague in your working place, etc. They are at times among family relatives, like in the case of Mr. Fidelis cited above.
7. They pretend to love their victim so much. They are the ones who take unusual interest in your child buying them gifts and always speaking good of them.
8. They work into your heart till you trust them so much that you won’t suspect them for anything.
9. They are not in haste. They take their time and work conscientiously till they win the trust of their victim.
10. They are full of ideas on how to get their target closer and closer till they strike.
11. When they succeed they are the ones that will tell the story of their conquest outside. They will carry the story of your family and your child for all to hear.
12. If they succeed once, it does not end there. They use blackmail, threat and subtle persuasions to hold their victims down and continue with their dirty acts till a major harm is done.
13. If they win the heart of your child, they will turn the child against you. They will make the child believe that you don’t care or that you don’t want them to grow up.
14. A paedophile has no inscription on the forehead to indicate that he or she is one.
15. They are like the devil; they don’t hear gentleman language.
16. If you choose to cover them they will do more harm. Expose them, give them no hiding place and they will cease from operating.
Ladies and gentlemen, let us all arise and fight against paedophiles. They are out to destroy our children's lives

19  Forum / The Buzz Central / Music freelance platform Gemtracks calling Nigerian musicians on: 26-04-2021 06:42 PM

Nigerians that have been wanting to get into the music industry is now in luck. The international music-industry freelance platform, Gemtracks Beats, is finally being released in Nigeria.

Stated in The Jerusalem Post as an alternative to a record label, musicians around the world use the website to access top musical talents to find custom instrumental beats, songwriters and music producers. There is even the option to send the finished song to magazines, radios and other outlets.

Founded in 2016, the website began as a humble online store that sold rap beats and hip hop beats produced by the owner, DJ Jesse Neo. These sections are still functioning as of today. Then seeing the website as a disruptor to how beats are purchased, his vision changed, and he turned the website into an open marketplace.

“Usually for a song to be successful, it must have many contributors,” Jesse told us. “This could mean having a very talented beatmaker and a very talented songwriter working together. My vision for Gemtracks is to let artists anywhere in the world find such talents and then collaborate with them.”

Musicians that freelance on the website can decide the service they hope to provide, the price and even the terms. This means they can decide on how much rights of the song they can have when the song starts making money. Their names can also be credited in the release, which can be a life changing experience if the song ends up charting.

Currently, more than 10,000 users have registered to the website. The majority of them are indie artists, however a small but growing number are freelancers.

“The reason why I am opening Gemtracks to Nigeria is that I realized there is a lot of unknown talented musicians in this country,” Jesse said. “It seems like such a pity that they are not more famous. However with Gemtracks, they can now have a way to get their names out there and show the world what they can do.”

20  Forum / Sports / What's the State of African Esports in 2021? on: 23-04-2021 12:27 AM

If you enjoy technology or video games, then you will almost certainly have seen the explosion of interest in esports right around the world over the last few years. Huge championships, leagues, and tournaments have emerged, with all the pomp and ceremony that you’d expect from any other professional sport.
The biggest markets for these new digital sports have been in South East Asia, North America and Europe, reflecting where the largest amount of the world’s wealth and largest video games markets are located.
That doesn’t mean Africa has gone without esports though. The continent has also been getting in on the action, with tech-savvy Africans keen to test their skills against fellow gamers from their own countries, neighboring nations, and the rest of the world.
So with nearly a third of 2021 already behind us, what’s the state of esports in Africa at present and what do its future prospects look like?

What Are Esports?
For the uninitiated, esports are a form of competition that use video games instead of real-world environments for athletes to face off against each other. The video games are typically retail versions that can be bought by anyone, but the players are much more talented than the average gamer.
Popular esport games include Call of Duty, Dota 2, Fortnite, League of Legends, and CS:GO.
Aside from this, esports are pretty much identical to other sports. Teams and athletes have fans, they sell tickets to events, broadcast games on TV and online, and receive huge sums of money from sponsors. Competitors are celebrities in the same way that footballers, cricketers, and tennis players are, though their fans may come from different demographics.
Big brands like Intel, Red Bull, Acer, and Activision have all got in on the act, investing heavily in sponsoring esports events and organizing their own tournaments. This has been the biggest driver of the industry in recent years.

A Fraction of the Size
The African esports scene has suffered from smaller investments and less interest from major brands than in larger markets like North America and Asia. This means that budgets for the biggest events in Africa can be fractions of the huge budgets that esports organizers have elsewhere in the world.
In 2020, the prize money on offer at FEJA, the African continent's biggest esports and video game event, was €20,000 ($23,900). Four years earlier, the Halo World Championship dished out more than 100 times that amount to players that took part.
Many of the biggest brands discussed earlier have been slower to sponsor African events, with local companies stepping in to fill the void instead.

Strong Growth Prospects
Being smaller has its advantages though. The African esports sector has a lot more opportunity for growth in the coming years than its international counterparts since it’s starting from a lower point. According to a report by, esports on the continent of Africa is forecast to grow at a compounded rate of 12% per year between 2020 and 2025.
Since most of the people interested in competitive video games are younger adults, Africa also poses a huge potential beyond the middle of the decade. By 2050, the number of Africans under the age of 24 will have grown by around a half, providing a huge boost to the gaming industry.
As more of Sub-Saharan Africa connects to the internet for the first time, more Africans will be able to benefit from the economic boom this can provide. As they do, they’ll likely follow in the footsteps of other nations, embracing video games as a new form of entertainment.
There is a long way to go in this regard though. By 2019, around 75% of the region had access to mobile internet, though only 26% actually used it.

Nigeria Leading the Way
Nigeria is one of the most tech-savvy African nations, thanks in part to investment initiatives by the Federal Government. The country’s Ministry of Youth and Sports Development has also pledged its support to esports as part of a new sporting strategy.
This has helped more Nigerians move into esports and develop their skills more than their neighbors. In 2020, the La Cup d’ Africana was won by Slime4KT, a Nigerian team that bested 900 others to come out on top.
While African teams are currently underrepresented on the world stage, initiatives like Nigeria’s, combined with demographic and technological developments on the continent, are likely to change that.
