A popular Nigerian artiste, Reminisce, says making good beats for songs is more important in Nigeria than lyrical content of songs.

On a Channels Television's programme, Rubbin' Minds, Reminisce said that the development was as a result of the fact that Nigerians do not listen to songs to see if the lyrics are okay or not.

Peter Jackson changes third Hobbit film title

Actor Richard Armitage as the dwarf Thorin Oakenshield.
Director Peter Jackson has announced the news that his third instalment of The Hobbit franchise has had a new name, and rather than The Hobbit: There And Back Again, it is called, The Hobbit: The Battle Of Five Armies.

“Our journey to make The Hobbit Trilogy has been in some ways like Bilbo’s own, with hidden paths revealing their secrets to us as we’ve gone along. ‘There and Back Again’ felt like the right name for the second of a two film telling of the quest to reclaim Erebor, when Bilbo’s arrival there, and departure, were both contained within the second film. But with three movies, it suddenly felt misplaced—after all, Bilbo has already arrived “there” in the ‘Desolation of Smaug’.

“When we did the premiere trip late last year, I had a quiet conversation with the studio about the idea of revisiting the title. We decided to keep an open mind until a cut of the film was ready to look at. We reached that point last week, and after viewing the movie, we all agreed there is now one title that feels completely appropriate.

“And so: ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ it is.”

What do you think of The Hobbit 3’s new title?

Van Gaal agrees Manchester United deal

Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal has reached a deal to join Manchester United as manager after the World Cup, replacing sacked David Moyes, a Dutch newspaper report said on Saturday.Popular broadsheet De Telegraaf said: “The national coach late last (Friday) night reached a deal with the top British club,” without citing sources.

“The man who’s the absolute number one to replace axed coach David Moyes will immediately take up the job when the Dutch Eleven is knocked out of the World Cup in Brazil,” the paper added.

Van Gaal, 62, who has been on holiday at his villa in Portugal’s Algarve “has been in talks with Ed Woodward, lawyer for club owners the Glazer brothers for a multi-year, multi-million contract,” it said.

Included in the deal would be a 100 million euros ($138 million) in transfer fees to beef up United’s flagging fortunes.Van Gaal, whose stylish way of football and no-nonsense attitude has earned him the nickname the “Iron Tulip”, has emerged as the front-runner to take over the hot seat at Old Trafford after Moyes’ unceremonious end-of-season release.

The Dutchman brings with him a long list of successes including several Dutch titles with top club Ajax and unfashionable AZ Alkmaar, a Bundesliga crown with Bayern Munich and Spanish championship with Barcelona.

Another mad ritualist arrested in Benin

A suspected ritual killer who specialises in selling human parts has been arrested by security operatives in Benin City, the Edo State capital, southern Nigeria.

The suspected ritualist was arrested at the Upper Sokponba road area of Benin with a gun, different human parts and N4 million cash. It was reliably gathered that the man had lived in a make-shift apartment for close to two years, pretending to be a madman.

Eyewitness account states that the suspected ritual killer was in the habit of behaving funny especially when it is getting dark. “This man sometimes behaves funny. In the afternoon, you will see him bathing naked, behaving like a real madman.

“What really disturbed us are the dead bodies found around almost the same area. The most serious issues is that if a dead body is that of a woman, the head, the breasts and the private part would have been removed. Same also goes for a male dead body.

He suggested that someone might have seen the suspect dumping the headless body on the express road and informed the security operatives.

Mo'Abudu profiled on CNN as Africa's Oprah

CNN has profiled Nigeria’s Mo Abudu, Executive Chairman and CEO of EbonyLife TV and first black woman to own a pan-African TV channel, EbonyLife TV, as one of the continent’s leading women.

Calling her “Africa’s Oprah”, CNN notes that Mo Abudu’s greatest achievement and what makes her story remarkable is not just conquering African TV – but doing it without any prior media experience.

“There were many knock backs along the way, many people telling me ‘you can’t do these things,” said the British-born entrepreneur in an interview with CNN’s Stephanie Busari. “But I think what’s important in life is that you believe in yourself and the things you can do.”

‘Mo’ as she is fondly called was interviewed on ‘Leading Women’ – a show that connects it’s audience to extraordinary women in the world – as a talk show host and media owner who presents the vision of a very different Africa. The show celebrates women at the top of their field, exploring their careers, lives and ideas.
With EbonyLife TV, Africa’s first Global Black Entertainment and lifestyle network, Mo has won acclaim for building a TV network creating 1,000 hours of fresh, engaging, original and premium homegrown programming yearly. And there are plans to unveil even more channels – all under the EbonyLife brand.

NEW VIDEO: X.O SENAVOE - SAY IT AGAIN


After dropping the emotive and fan-favorite “Beautiful”, and right of the heels of being named an African Hip-Hop king by Lobatana Africa, X.O Senavoe follows up his ground-breaking intro video for “Taxi Music” with the excellent new video for his first solo joint “Say It Again”, produced by Kid Konnect.

The “Say It Again” music video, shot on location all around the world including New York, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa and Canada, was brought to life by the co-partnering of director Ike Awuah and X.O Senavoe and shows what X.O and #XONATION is all about: the blending of all types of people from all walks of life doing ‘Xtra-Ordinary things in ordinary ways. It also depicts the movement that is the continually-growing thousands of X.O fans around the world.

His twist on the “xo” signature, using “when your chick’s blowing me kisses, she’s really saying my name” serves as a tie-in to the playful nature of the song while solidifying X.O’s royalty ranking as a rap giant. The video will be followed right away by the release of the first single of the year and kicks off what will be a great year of non-stop X.O music.

“The only rapper Stevie Wonder is calling a must-see”. Say It again!

Zimbabwe more corrupt than Nigeria - Former US Ambassador to Nigeria

Ambassador John Campbell, a great critic of Nigeria’s government has waded into the diplomatic spat between Nigeria and Zimbabwe, over President Robert Mugabe’s denigration of Nigeria as a corrupt country. Campbell, a blogger on the website of US Council on Foreign Relations, said contrary to the impression Mugabe created, Zimbabwe is worse than Nigeria as a corrupt nation.

Campbell relied on the Corruption Perception Index published by Transparency International to reach his conclusion. In the last edition, Mugabe’s Zimbabwe was rated 157, while Nigeria was rated 133.

Chiwetel Ejiofor covers Mode Men’s April 2014 Issue

Hollywood star Chiwetel Ejiofor, on friday said he was proud to identified as a Nigerian. 

Mr. Ejiofor said this in Lagos at the Premiere of a movie “Half of a Yellow Sun” based on a novel written by a Nigerian novelist, Chimamanda Adichie. He said that there was a wrong impression that he claimed not to be a Nigerian. “During the period of publicising “Twelve Years a Slave” I was asked where i was originally from. “I suppose i was trying to give an honest answer about where I was born, and so, I said London, which is where i was born. “And to me, it was a surprising reaction that people then concluded that i didn’t identify as Nigerian. “Of course, I am Nigerian-British, But if they ask me where I was born, I can’t say Enugu, because I wasn’t born in Enugu, but, it doesn’t mean that I don’t identify as Nigerian. “I am proud of being Nigerian that I am extraordinarily happy to be here to make this film”. 

We wanted to make a film in Nigeria for several years, maybe 20 years “Several years we talked about making a film in Nigera, internationalise the market, we know there is so much, there’s a handful of energy and ability in Nigeria. “And, for those of us that were born overseas, we want to get back into all of that and try to work together and make films and internationalise what is a wonderful market community”.

VIDEO: Drunken Mobile Policeman Caught Assaulting Two Women


A drunken police officer with the Mobile Police, or Mopol, Unit #20, in Lagos, who was later identified as Tafa Mohammed, was caught breaking the law. A citizen video photographer captured officer Mohammed brutalizing two women with a hidden camera, filming this disturbing footage at a safe distance. 

This illegal action by the officer erupted when a street food vendor would not issue him fish to finish up his beer. The food vendor was said to have declined to sell fish alone, except to those buying food with it, a vendor policy that angered the policeman. Mohammed, a mobile policeman, was reeking of alcohol, say eyewitnesses to this event. Mohammed took on a female customer who was buying food from the same vendor at the time he got there, and threw her into a nasty pond of putrid muddy water.

This assault on the two women took place at Lewis Street, Lafiaji, Obalende on the Lagos Island. Mohammed is seen drawing a rifle and pointing it at one of the women, an act of 'pistol whipping,' and he was backed-up with the presence of a second MOPOL officer. One round of ammunition was fired. 

The torture reportedly caused internal injuries for the victim. A crowd of bystanders, and pedestrians can be heard shouting their displeasure at both officers.

EDITORIAL: A BOLEKAJA PRESIDENT AND HIS UNPRESIDENTIAL ANTICS

by Soni Akoji
I watched with dismay as President Goodluck Jonathan made a caricature of himself and brought the revered office of the President and Commander In Chief of the Armed Forces, Federal Republic of Nigeria, to an all time low yesterday in Kano during a PDP Jamboree he personally attended 24 hours after the Abuja bomb explosion.

When it was time to deliver his 15 minutes speech, President Jonathan was pathetic. He left no one in doubt that he was a complete waste of space. He did not address cogent national issues and how he has made a difference in addressing the challenges facing the nation.

NEW VIDEO: RANSOME FT. PHYNO - LOCAL BOY REMIX


Ransome the Local Boy Gone International (LBGI) as he calls himself makes a statement with this crystal visual for his hit-wave single “LocalBoy Remix” featuring the play maker Phyno.

Ransome is definitely on his grind in the music industry and without a doubt his vocal is still on point going by the classy way he laced up a sweet melody over this dope beat. Local Boy talks about a young man who finds love in a beautiful young lady who’s down for the real life and no fronting. 

She wanna be with the local boy… “Instead of Sharwama na bush meat, anu Nchi ya na Mgbada” .

Classic tune from Ransome and a sick rap from the play maker a.k.a Phynofino and a nice rendition by Square Ball, directed by Adasa Cookey. 

Stop Wearing Your Earphones the Wrong Way

I love listening to music on in-ear headphones. The sound is rich and perfectly clear, they block out external annoyances, and they’re super light and portable. As such, I frequently recommend them to friends when they ask me what kinds of earphones they should buy. But just as frequently, those friends come back and tell me they’re unsatisfied with the sound. Tinny, they say. Not enough bass. And they fall out too often. This is usually the point where we both realize it’s an issue of fit, not function.

Chelsea returns to top of English Premier League with 3-0 win against Stoke

After the days of hang-dog soul-searching from Chelsea here was a performance that ranks among their best this campaign as they disdainfully dismissed Stoke. It was no contest. A mis-match.

With it Chelsea returned to the top of the league but such has been the resignation around the place recently that this important detail almost felt like a footnote. It could be significant still – who knows? – even if there was no sense of celebration.

Chelsea's decision not to buy a striker in the last transfer window has complicated their quest for trophies but here one of the players who they did buy in January, 21-year-old winger Mohamed Salah, marked his first Premier League start with a performance that helped to send José Mourinho's team back to the top of the table.

The Egyptian scored in the first half before being fouled in the second to give Frank Lampard the chance to convert a penalty. Lampard missed the spot-kick but netted the rebound. Willian then added a third goal with a sumptuous shot from the edge of the area. Chelsea now have a one-point lead in the Premier League, having played a match more than second-placed Liverpool.

State Dept. misplaced $6B under Hillary Clinton's tenure

The State Department misplaced and lost some $6 billion due to the improper filing of contracts during the past six years, mainly during the tenure of former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, according to a newly released Inspector General report.

The $6 billion in unaccounted funds poses a “significant financial risk and demonstrates a lack of internal control over the Department’s contract actions,” according to the report.

The alert, originally sent on March 20 and just released this week, warns that the missing contracting funds “could expose the department to substantial financial losses.”

The report centered on State Department contracts worth “more than $6 billion in which contract files were incomplete or could not be located at all,” according to the alert.
