Between Kizz Daniel And Chidinma On Instagram

Kizz Daniel and Chidinma are still going strong, if their latest Instagram exchange is anything to go by. The musicians reportedly started dating in March 2018 and even appeared to have gotten matching tattoos. Kizz posted a photo of her in his room and a photo of their matching tattoos. However, they have not been photographed together since then. However, yesterday, as Chindinma announced she had moved in to her newly built house, when a friend asked her when she can come visit, Kizz Daniel replied jokingly saying ‘we no get plans tonight'. This elicited an equally light hearted response from Chidinma.

Taye Currency Reveals Why He Posted Video Of MC Oluomo

Fuji artiste, Taye Currency has revealed why he posted a live video of himself with MC Oluomo. The video put an end to rumours of Oluomo’s death. In a chat with Sunday Scoop, Currency revealed why he posted the video. He said; “I had been inundated with calls from people that MC had died; so, I had to convince them otherwise. Everybody knows that whenever Oluomo comes to Ibadan, he is always at my place. We have been friends for over 25 years and are very close.

Celebrities are not saints, stop pushing your kids to be friends with them- Georgina Onuoha says after watching ‘Surviving R. Kelly’

Actress Georgina Onuoha has advised parents to stop pushing their kids to become friends with celebrities as none of the celebrities they look up to are saints.

Georgina on her IG page wrote ''It is scary to know that these monsters abused women sexually for decades.

Artistes Should Stay Away From Political Campaigns – Kenny Ogungbe

Veteran music executive, Kenny Ogungbe, has advised Nigerian artistes to stay away from political campaigns since Nigerian politicians do not really support the entertainment industry. Ogungbe in an interview with Sahara TV said many politicians do not invest in entertainment, but “during politics, they will use musicians to gather people together at their campaign grounds, and they will use music to sell their manifestoes”.   Speaking further, he advised entertainers not to get involved or align with political parties, as this can be used against them by other political parties. “If a popular (artist) is involved, you will be zeroing in on a particular party. Let’s say Davido. He is known to be PDP. Anywhere there is APC, they see him as PDP and they will cut him off. If y...

The New Norms Of The Creative Industry

Vanessa Obioha writes that as the Nigerian creative industry continues to attract top financial institutions and stakeholders, old norms will be eroded Streaming Into the Future: Nollywood actress Genevieve Nnaji’s laudable deal with online streaming giant Netflix last year was a good pointer that digital distribution is the way to go. Once frowned upon, filmmakers are now embracing the opportunities such streaming platforms provide. However, the downside of films released on Netflix is that they are easily pirated. For instance, some online platforms already have Nnaji’s ‘Lionheart’ film for free download before it’s official release on Netflix. Apart from piracy, the high cost of data in Nigeria is another conundrum. With a majority of the citizens paying large sums for data co...
