Mikel Obi deletes twitter account after racist abuse

Mikel Obi today deleted his Twitter account after he was racially abused for 'costing' Chelsea victory in the opening match of their Champions League defence against Juventus yesterday Wednesday Sept. 19th.
The match ended 2-2 and Chelsea fans blamed Mikel for giving the ball away just ten minutes before time and also not preventing the equalizing goal. After the end of the game, Chelsea fans racially abused Mikel on his Twitter account @Mikel12Official, prompting the Super Eagles midfielder to delete the account which he set up just a few months back.
Chelsea said they have informed the police after being made aware of the racist Tweets. A statement read:
We've been made aware of racist tweets targeted at Mikel which are totally unacceptable, disgusting and abhorrent. We've informed the police and support taking the strongest possible action."

Eedris Abdulkaree​m releases Obasanjo-i​nspired track


Following the brawl which recently took place between ex-President Olusegun Obansanjo and foremost rapper, Eedris Abdulkareem, the rapper has fulfilled his promise to fans by releasing a new track titled Baba.
Baba, according to Idris, was inspired by the war of words between Obasanjo and himself , when the ex-president made a reference to Idris’s Jaja Jaja.

In this new single, the LaKreem/Kennis artiste sums up his opinion on the current state of the country.
It would be recalled that following ex-President Obasanjo’s  statement during a forum organized by  Nigeria Leadership Initiative (NLI) on Tuesday, August 28, 2012, where he said that Abdulkareem’s 2004 hit track,  Jaga jaga, produced by Kennis Music, doesn’t portray Nigeria in a good light, Idris hit Twitter, where he made a reply.
He called OBJ his ‘joy therapy’, also stating that Obasanjo can’t do without him.
“It’s obvious that Obasanjo can’t do without me. I’m his joy therapy. Mr ex-president, Nigeria still dey jagajaga. In fact worst pass jagajaga”, @idris_Abdulkarm tweeted.
He also went ahead to call Obasanjo a Boko Haram member and challenged him to let Goodluck rule in peace.
“President Obasanjo if you truly love Goodluck as you claimed, why don’t you talk to your fellow Boko Haram members to let Goodluck rule in peace”.
As if not enough, Eedris still went ahead, referring to OBJ as a mugu: “Mr ex-president, I heard you were talking about me in your last interview, hahahahahhahah. It’s obvious you can’t do without me. You are my mugu…”.
Following the brawl, Eedris says he is inspired and will be recording a new song titled ‘Obasanjo na my friend’.
“Watch out for my new single, Obasanjo na my friend…Obasanjo, thank you for making me a star. In fact, talk more about me. I’m inspired!!”, he tweeted

Onyeka Onwenu releases new video

Two years after she released her last album, legendary Songstress, Onyeka Onwenu has reassured her fans that she is not done with music yet, as she releases  a new single “Falling In Love,” from her upcoming  compilation album, The Legend.
Directed by Tolucci, the video which is not all gospel contains 13 songs and it’s being sold for N1, 000. It explores the christian perspective of Jesus as the groom and the church as the bride. The video opens with a drama between a bride and groom who were about to be joined together by a pastor in a holy matrimony. Blushing with happiness, the pastor goes ahead with his sermon of love, encouraging them both to love each other till death. He pronounces them to husband and wife as he asks the groom to kiss the bride.
Then Onyeka enlightens with a pop-like verse, calling to a remembrance, the professed undying love couples had for each other at the beginning of their union.
I’m falling in love, over and over again…you are all I have, Jesus…, she sings.  With a blend of English and Igbo, Onyeka delivers the message of salvation and at the same time, professing her love for God.

Davido issues official statement about alleged arrest warrant

As you all know by now there have been rumors about an arrest warrant for Davido. These are all false, according to the singer's management. Below is an official statement from Davido & HKN Music.
I want to assure all my beloved fans and friends that, I am not wanted by the police and no officer in the Nigerian police gave an order for my arrest. I went to the police some weeks ago to give a statement and cleared my name. I did not beat up any taxi driver and the lady that hired the taxi driver and all those that are involved in this matter have made statements to the police and none of them mentioned my name except the taxi driver who claims that a large sum of money was missing in his taxi, in fact the lady in question stated that she was not beaten by anyone and that nobody assaulted the taxi driver.  This is a case of blackmail, and I have resolved not to succumb to any blackmail for money. And to all those that are involved in this conspiracy to bring me down, I want to remind you that God Almighty himself got me to where I am today in my music career and you will not succeed in your devilish efforts to bring me down.
Adedeji David Adeleke, aka Davido
