DSTV To Feature 3 Northern TV Stations

MultiChoice Nigeria Limited has said it will consider three television stations on its DSTV platform. The decision followed a parley organized by the management of the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) between MultiChoice and CNG.

NBC, upon receiving the petition, called for a meeting between the two parties. In a statement yesterday, spokesman of CNG, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, said MultiChoice appreciated the decent intervention and accepted three northern-based television channels; Liberty, Tozali and Raham...

Ghanaians Love Burna Boy When He Smokes Weed But Hate And Criticize Me When I Do The Same- Shatta Wale Bitterly Fumes

Shatta Wale is preaching what is good for the geese is equally good for the gander. He has bitterly asked Ghanaians to do to him what they do to others because we are all the same. He says people have formed the habit of tearing into him and chastising him when he smokes but would hail and laud Burna Boy when he does the same. According to Wale, even if he is making sense, they would say he is talking trash because he is on something cheap and high when mostly it is not the truth. His rants came in the wake of Burna Boy and Wizkid‘s win at the 63rd Grammy. Wale says our industry is stale and no one would win such a global award if they do not heed his advise. He says his Grammys are his properties. Burna Boy Smokes Weed But If I Smoke Small P3 Then Ghanaians Will Be Sh...
