Yemi Alade Addresses Her Hacked Instagram Account: The Erotic Messages That Were Sent to Phyno Were Not from Me

 Yemi Alade Addresses Her Hacked Instagram Account
 
A few days ago Yemi Alade had her Instagram account hacked while she was on tour outside Nigeria.
Immediately her PR team took control of the situation but the singer is speaking out about the incident by herself for the first time in an interview with Punch Newspaper. She talks about losing followers and the messages exchanged between her and Phyno.
I lost over 90,000 followers which made me a bit unhappy. The erotic messages that were sent to Phyno were not from me. It was the hackers that sent it to him. Right from the moment a picture of Snoop Dogg with marijuana was posted, that was not from me. 
My PR team has been sending messages to instagram but we are yet to get a response. I think it is because we are in Africa; they tend not to attend to our messages on time. But my team in London is working on it even if it means deactivating it. I have a new instagram page now. However, I started my tour on that day and it elevated my mood
She also talks about the age-long question of whether she is dating Nollywood actor Alex Ekubo or not.
Alex Ekubo and I just shot a video together and that was it. Even though we attended some events together, it does not mean anything. We are very cool friends, there is nothing between us

I Am Not Getting Endorsements Because I Refuse To Change My Brand Says Terry G

 
Terry G has opened up in a new interview with Punch on why he won't lose his crazy image, marriage and setting trends
On Marriage
It will happen very soon but it takes planning and much more. Ironically, I am facing a lot of pressure regarding marriage but it is not from either of our families. The pressure is from outsiders. I want to work hard and be stable. I want to work to the extent that I would not rely on music because I do music for fun. Everybody knows that she lives with me and I am already living like a married man.
Why do you like being controversial?
It is what sells. I am not the rave-of-the-moment artiste but I am still very relevant in the industry and it is because I am controversial. I love the controversy. I like making people talk.
People are of the opinion that since you became a father, you have calmed down in your lifestyle, do you agree to that?
Yes it is true. Anybody that has a child must calm down, it is a general thing. Once you have a child, you must become a responsible man. That is when people would know that the madness is deliberate and it is just being done to make money. My son is a British citizen and he is going back to school in London in March. This is to show people that I know what I am doing. The craziness is what puts food on my table and money in my bank accounts. There are people that support and love it.
Back then, you pierced your entire face, why did you eventually remove the studs on your face?
I stopped because I already set the pace and everybody is piercing now. I will still do something that they will follow.
What is the most expensive fashion item you own?
It is my jewellery but I cannot say the amount I bought it for security reasons. They are investments and even my earring is gold.
What kind of clothes do you feel most comfortable in?
I love looking hip-hop. Dressing is a style and there are so many reasons I am not on a billboard. I will not cut my hair for any reason neither would I change my brand. I cannot lose this image because of my fans and I love them so much.
Why do you like wearing bright coloured clothes?
I like flashy colours because of the kind of shoes I wear. I like blue, red, and green. I like colours a lot but I do not like pink. I believe pink and purple are colours for homosexuals
What fashion item can you not leave home without?
That would be my jewellery. They call me Mr. Bling Bling, I started it.
What is the biggest fashion mistake you have made?
There was a time I put different colours on my hair at once. My hair was multi-coloured and I looked like a masquerade. It had yellow, green and red. That was a big fashion regret but I just wanted people to talk about my brand. I just started out back then.
Since you portray craziness with your brand, can you do that hairstyle again?
Never, God forbid.

How Enugu Governor’s Aide Was Lured To A School, Beaten To Pulp For Impregnating SS1 Student

 
A middle-aged man who narrowly escaped death in the hands of angry teachers for allegedly impregnating a secondary school girl was on Wednesday confirmed to be a Personal Assistant to the Enugu State Governor, Sullivan Chime.
 
Vanguard gathered that the true identity of the man (names withheld) was found in his Kia car impounded by the angry teachers. The car was still lying at the premises of Metropolitan Girls Secondary School located at Ogui New layout Enugu as at the time of this report along with his Permanent Voters Card (PVC) and other documents found in the car.

However, indication were rife that the powers that-be have intervened and directed the officials of National Agency for Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) presently handling the investigation to soft pedal.
 
When our reporter visited the Enugu zonal office of NAPTIP located at GRA in Enugu yesterday afternoon, a top female official of the command who refused to disclose her identity said, "we don't comment on cases being investigated, so no comment". The suspect who was earlier mistaken for a local contractor was beaten to pulp and stripped naked for allegedly impregnating an SS1 student of the school (names withheld).
 
The cat was let out of the bag when the victim suddenly slumped on the ground during morning assembly on that fateful Wednesday bleeding profusely. She later named the man responsible for the pregnancy. He was therefore lured to the school where he was mobbed.
 
State Commissioner for Education, Professor Uche Okolo who earlier confirmed the incident told reporters that "a man was apprehended. The man defiled a girl. The girl got pregnant. The child was bleeding and rushed to hospital. The school made a report to NAPTIP. The man came to the school to take the girl and he was arrested. The good thing is that he has been apprehended. He should go and face the law", he added.

Divorce Drama: I Can’t Cope With His Big Manhood Wife Tells Court


There was laughter at the Sharia Court, Samaru, Gusau, Zamfara State, during the week, when a housewife, Aisha Dannupawa, asked the court to dissolve her one-week marriage to her husband, Ali Maizinari, because she could not bear the size of his joystick.

When the case came up, the woman told the court that she married her husband after her first marriage failed.

The mother of three revealed that before she packed into her husband's house, as the tradition demanded, she was invited into his parents house.

She told the court that "when he came, we had sex but the experience was a nightmare. Instead of enjoying the sex, it turned out to be something else because his joystick was too big," she told

the court.

She also told the court that after the experience, she took some medication, which was given to her by her mother.

"I told my mother the experience but she told me to endure and that with time, I will be able to cope. She then gave me some drugs,'' she added.

According to her, "two days later when he came to visit me, we had sex again, but the experience was too much to bear. It was then I knew that I could not continue with the marriage because of the size of his joystick.''

The husband, Maizinari, did not deny what his wife said. He told the court that he was willing to divorce her but that she should pay back the dowry and all that he spent on her during the courtship.

When he was asked to state the amount, Maizinari disclosed that what he expected from her was N60,000.

President of the court, Alhaji Mamman Shinkafi, told the couple to try reconciliation.

Exclusive: Lagos Bar Where Male Sex Workers Hustle For Clients

 
 
The time was 7pm, penultimate Saturday. The venue was a hotel on Abaranje Road in Ikotun, a suburb in Lagos State. He adorned black denims on a black T-shirt. He said his name was Kenny, of course, he admitted it wasn't his real name.

He sauntered into the hotel as if his main aim was to have a couple of drinks and maybe complement it with a plate of sizzling pepper soup.
But Kenny didn't just come to only have a drink, Kenny is first of all, a male commercial sex worker and was looking for a customer that he would 'service' in order to make a quick cash for the weekend. One of our correspondents got to know Kenny through a regular customer, who had been patronising the motel bar for a long time and who once had a close contact with him.
Being a regular face in the bar as the place seemed to be his office at night, his presence was certain, and indeed, he came, our correspondent waited for him.

It is no news that bars and drinking joints are the right spots for many on weekends, and being at the centre of a busy road, this hotel seemed like a right place for many. The music blaring from the speakers was good and loud enough to entertain even those who were not within the premises.


With the perimeter fencing well-illuminated, passers-by could as well be tempted to stop by and have a drink. But for Kenny, he came on purpose. On hand were some guys in crested vests with 'security' boldly printed on them to ensure law and order in the premises.

Not even the crowd and almost non-availability of chairs could dissuade people as some, including our correspondent, had to lean on a car for some time before he could locate a seat.
"This is the way it is on weekends. Because a number of those who come here on weekends are in the working class, you don't get to see them on week days, so, on weekends, the house is always full. Even at certain times, you may not have a place to sit, and the premises, including the car park, would be so crowded, yet, it's safe," Seun, who claimed to be a regular customer, told Saturday Punch.
But the loud music would not really be the only thing one would instantly notice, skimpily and scantily dressed ladies prancing from one end of the motel to the other would instantly hit your eyes as soon as you sit, stand or hang out anywhere near the motel.
Of course, one wouldn't need a soothsayer to know that the ladies are commercial sex workers, looking for customers for the night.
Indeed, just as they are on the lookout for patrons, their male counterparts are not left behind.
Like Kenny, sitting at different tables, were young guys chatting, smoking and drinking and talking in loud voices. To the innocent eyes, they are just young men having a good time. But then, only a few would know that some of them are also commercial sex workers. They are available for women who are ready to have them in exchange for some cash.

Since the male sex workers may not readily own up or be identified as being available for 'service', one of our correspondents approached a female sex worker as if he needed a 'quickie' or 'short rest' so that in the middle of their chat, she could help in identifying a guy to service his 'madam.'
"Babe, how far now," our correspondent asked. "I dey o, wetin dey happen?" she responded. Our correspondent introduced himself as 'John' while she gave her name as 'Debbie' who looked to be in her mid 20s.

Our correspondent requested for a short service but that before proceeding to the room or the car, she would have to help in arranging a "strong guy" for his madam who parked outside the hotel.
"I brought my madam here so I could 'arrange' a guy for her, but since I wouldn't want to idle away while they would be having a good time, we can quickly do a 'short rest' before they would finish theirs. So you go help me arrange man for am. I mean guy wey strong well well o," our correspondent had asked Debbie.

"That one na small thing now, guys dey. Make we talk our own first. It depends on what you want or what she wants; maybe tall or short, fair or dark, they are all here and they are all very strong too. In fact, I have some that I can't give your madam because they can 'wound' her. I hope say your madam go fit pay o and she go get body hold am," Debbie responded swiftly.
She agreed to take N1,500 for the 'short time' service, with an agreement that our correspondent would pay for a room in the motel at the rate of N700.
"For short rest, a room is N700 but if it is till day break, it's N4,000, but if you give me the money, they can take N500 from me instead of the N700 because I'm a regular customer. I just 'rested' a guy now, so they know me very well, and there are many rooms we can choose from," she explained.
When the deal was sealed, she handed her drink to our correspondent and dashed into the crowd to look for one of the male sex workers.

A few minutes later, Debbie returned with five guys, averagely in their mid and late 20s. On arrival, they introduced themselves, which sounded like aliases. Among them was Water, perceived to be a strong and qualified guy for the job. Others gave their names as TK, Segun, Uche and Charles, all looking set for work as they gesticulated occasionally.

While thinking of which of them to choose, they all promised to 'deliver' more than expected.

On a closer look, our correspondent had sighted one of them in the bar, smoking, drinking and dancing, all at once, but nothing would have given him away as a sex worker. Though he appeared like a 'bad guy', sagging his jean trousers as if his boxers had to be a part of the party.

After taking turns to explain how much they could perform, Saturday Punch learnt that the average amount the guys collect from any woman who needs their services for a short time is N5,000. It could be more than one round, but not for too long.
"If it is till daybreak, we charge at least N8,000, and the woman would also pay for the room and a room costs N4,000 per night in this place unless she doesn't want to use the hotel. We can go for as many rounds as she wants," Water told Saturday Punch.
With an assurance that money wouldn't be a problem as long as he could deliver and satisfy the madam, Water boasted that he had been doing it and 'servicing' big women for a long time and that he was very popular in the bar such that those who had been patronising the hotel knew him for his strength.
"It's been a while I started doing this thing, even before I came here. And the truth is that the more you do, the better skilled you become. So chairman, relax, madam go enjoy my company. In fact, because she is a new customer, I can give her discount and she should just give me whatever she has afterwards. I'm sure if she enjoys my service, she would come back looking for me.
"Ask them, all of them know me, and they know that I don't disappoint. If she says we should go now, I'm ready, no stopping till mama calls," he assured.
When our correspondent selected Water to meet the madam, who had been waiting outside in her car, his face beamed with smiles. He teased his colleagues, saying he had caught another big fish.

He almost led the way when it was time to go, basking in some euphoria. It was while walking to the car that he told our correspondent that he had been cash-strapped for some time. He said he would give his best so that he would be rewarded handsomely.
"Some of the big women I have 'serviced' before still call me till date, and once you do them well (sic), they won't want to lose you. They can even call you to meet them anywhere and they would pay," he added.
On getting to the car where one of our correspondents pretends to be the 'madam,' Water expressed a little reservation before going into the car alone with someone he had never met before, but with assurance that nothing would happen to him, he jumped in.

But then again, once inside the car where 'madam' was waiting to 'bargain' with Water, the young man's confidence waned a little as he kept looking from one corner of the car to the other, apparently looking for what would give away the correspondent as not being real.

Asked why he looked tensed, Water said, "Sorry ma, it is not as if I am not used to this. But then again, I have to be careful. You know that this is not common. We are aware that women come here and 'take' our 'destinies' once we sleep with them. The money that we ought to make would be going to them."

But 'madam' quickly assured him that his fears weren't necessary by telling him, "I am not looking for a boyfriend. The guys I had dealt with stole my money and broke my heart even when I gave them love. I just want somebody I can have sex with and that is just that. I don't want my heart to be involved at all."

Satisfied with the explanation, Water quickly boasted about his sexual prowess.
"Ah! Madam! I will do you well. In fact, if I 'handle' you, I am not sure you would want to let me go. Just try me and you would find out that you have been dealing with the wrong boys."
And of course, he didn't waste time to tell 'madam' that he would charge N15, 000 for the night for his 'services.'
"Madam, if na TDB (Till day break), na N15k I go take o, I no charge you. No be so we dey even collect. E get some people wey dey charge N20k. Last week, na N25k one woman pay me. I just like you as you set, na why I wan collect N15k."
The bargaining eventually ended at N7, 000 for the night but Water insisted that he wouldn't be the person that would pay for the room.
"A room in this hotel is N4, 000. You will be the one to pay for it and my own money will be N7, 000. Na the last price be that."
Apart from the money 'madam' was willing to pay, the young man had some other 'conditions' attached to his services.
"Madam, if you no wan make I use condom, that one will cost you extra. The N7k is with condom o. Without condom dey sweet pass and na why we dey charge extra N2, 000 for that.
"Madam, you go first 'ginger' me well. Then we go come play. Na you go 'ginger' me before we play, otherwise my body no go fit stand."
When our correspondent assured him that he would be 'gingered,' Water was all eager to set the ball rolling.But our correspondent told him he would have to wait for her the following day, that she had just come into town.

Before they departed, 'madam' asked Water if he had other people who could 'service' her friends and he replied in the affirmative.
"We plenty nah. Ha! Should I call somebody for you now? Is your friend on her way? This is what we do. We are 'hustlers'. Na so we dey make our money, we no be thieves and we are not criminals," he said.
When asked if he would agree to a monthly or weekly allowance, Water agreed but not without saying,
"Madam, the first night, we must do it here o. I am still not sure of you. So we have to use this motel first. Then, if you want me to come to your hotel later, I would agree. That one na small thing."
While Water and 'madam' engaged in serious bargaining, Debbie appeared, seemingly impatient to have our correspondent, her 'early customer' all to herself. With a little tip, she agreed to stay for some time until the conversation between Water and the 'madam' was over.
"That guy is good if your madam can pay. I have slept with him before and he almost spoilt my tool of business. He took me home for 'daybreak' and I could barely walk the following morning. My legs were weak and I could barely walk home, and he still appeared very strong after all he did through the night. Even though he paid me N6,000 for the service, I can't sleep with him again," Debbie narrated.
Debbie assured our correspondent that the chosen guy was a very strong 'sex machine.' She explained that the guys who do such are not always greedy about the money they want to collect because she had arranged guys for some women earlier, including the one she did for a woman the previous day.
"The woman called me this morning to appreciate me for giving her a good guy. She told me the guy was very good and capable," she added.
When asked whether there were enough men that could satisfy as many women that might come in a day, she hissed in amazement, saying they were more than imagined.
"Some of those guys that you see hanging around are available for service, whether for short time or TDB but you won't know they do such, you know how our society be now. Unlike our own, so they can't really do much to present themselves as available. Besides, some women are too shy to come here but since here is safe and there is accommodation for just N700, they feel safe to do it here," she said.
After a little familiarity, she confided in our correspondent that she had a beauty salon but that since business had been bad, she went into commercial sex to augment her income, more so because it doesn't affect her work in the afternoon.
 "But if any of my customers calls me during the day, I will oblige him as long as he's ready to pay," she added.
While our correspondent promised to get back to Water the following day, he gladly gave out his number as he pocketed the N1,000 gift given to him to buy himself a drink. He however added that he would be expecting a call, beaming with smiles as he walked away.

While the conversation lasted, some of the other guys had been moving up and down around the car, hoping the 'madam' would need them as well. And, on the other hand, Debbie had stormed out of the discussion with our correspondent out of impatience, complaining that she was losing money as she stood outside chatting, but not without a cash gift as well

Etcetera Comes For Nigerian Celebs In New Article, Says They Own N200m Homes In Their Dreams

 
Etcetera is relentless. No matter how many times he's slammed by celebs, he still comes for them.  This time around he came for Oritsefemi and his N200m new home which he says he owns in his dreams..lol. He also came for Iyanya, D'banj, and Wizkid and their multi million Naira Lekki homes that don't exist. This Etcetera eh..lol. Read below...
Again, I'm going to go out on a limb here to talk on a subject that may not be very popular or nice to Nigerian celebs, especially the guilty ones. I have said it severally that just because someone is a celebrity doesn't mean they are smart. They may have a talent or skill but many of them are not smart especially when it involves their finances. The old saying, "your lies will come back to haunt you" has never been more true than the recent cases of D'banj, Iyanya and Wizkid who are being kicked out of their homes after lying they owned the properties.

The residents of blogosphere boulevard were stunned when the news broke that D'banj got an eviction notice from his landlord and was also said to be highly indebted. Yes, it is hard to believe that someone of D'banj's status could actually be thrown out of his house. But for those who know that the Nigerian entertainment industry is built on lies and more lies, it didn't come as a surprise or a case of a cranky landlord. Entertainers are well rehearsed liars. They are not what they make you believe they are. Even the upcoming artist with just one song on radio issues a press release that they've bought a mansion in Lekki Phase One and a Range Sport SUV?
There was a time when it was strongly whispered that Don Jazzy and his crew owned Club Jonzing until the truth came out. You must have also heard that D'banj owns Koko Lounge. My brothers and sisters in habit of believing everything you hear, I wish you all knew how your favourite celebs laugh in their closet seeing you swallow the lies like fufu and draw soup. Let me give an example of how some artistes can be terrible liars, we were on a tour of five Nigerian cities with Basketmouth and his then Humour Unlimited monthly show sponsored by BAT. When we got to Enugu, a certain artiste was snoring like a broken trailer exhaust pipe in the bus on our way from the event centre to the hotel. I tapped him hoping to stir him up to reduce his noise but I was shocked when he woke up immediately swearing that he wasn't snoring, that he was only trying to get our reaction. Our reaction? After snoring for about 20 minutes with a trail of saliva from one corner of his mouth to his shirt collar! O'boy some people can lie in Africa.
 
Did you hear it on breaking news when Iyanya bought a house in his dreams? His management must have thought it was a fantastic promo strategy then. If only they knew that not far into the future, Iyanya would be dragged by his balls across the floor of the internet, and that his aggrieved brother would take to twitter to inform everyone that Iyanya had been evicted (not from Project shame) from his dream mansion. Yes, it is double wahala for deadi-bodi and the owner of deadi-bodi but won't it be tripple wahala for Oritsefemi and his management when fans eventually discovered that the N200m mansion he purportedly bought some months back was actually bought in his dreams and not in the real world? How much does he charge per gig and how long has he been playing these gigs to be able to afford a mansion of that amount? Isn't it wonderful how naija entertainers think their fans and everyone else is shallow and gullible?
 
Common sense should tell every artiste that these lies won't achieve anything but hurt their careers in the long run when the truth is eventually revealed. Like it was revealed this week that Wizkid's car hasn't been paid for. True, some naija musicians make a lot of money, but not the kind of money they want you to believe. Does Oritsefemi look the part of a N200m house owner even with all his body cream? The telco brand ambassadors who are being coerced into lying about their endorsement fees can't make such a preposterous claim not to talk of someone with no endorsement deal.
 
I shivered when I saw in some blogs over the week that Genevieve just bought a house in Ghana for a whopping $4m. This will go down as the grandmother of all lies told so far. Genny baybay, you should have asked yourself if there's any house worth $4m in the whole of Ghana, except you bought the Ghana National Theatre which by the way may not be worth $4m. These lies are getting dumber by the day. The worst thing that can happen to any man is believing his own lies.
 
If we had a system where entertainers are taxed for their acquisitions, the ridiculous and unnecessary lies will stop. They will speak the truth and nothing but the truth or so help them God.

Mother Kills Baby After Giving Him Heroin Overdose so She Could Take Cocaine In Peace


A mother who is a drug addict gave her baby concentrated heroin to 'knock him out or make him sleep' so she could take crack cocaine 'in peace', a court has heard.

Kelly Emery, 34, was charged with manslaughter after her son Fenton Hogan died of a heroine overdose.

Emery denies giving the two-year-old the heroin substitute to make him sleep and is currently on trial at Nottingham Crown Court but the baby's grandmother Angela Emery, Kelly Emery's mother, told the court her daughter 'cared more about drugs than her children

When she was asked how her daughter funded her habit in the months before Fenton's death, Mrs. Emery said: 'Selling herself, basically.

'She would phone [me] regularly for money - she would claim it was for gas, electricity or food.'

Mrs. Emery said her daughter had been addicted to drugs since the age of 17.

She said it was clear from her daughter's home and her appearance that she was an addict.

Mrs. Emery told the court the house was mess and her daughter was 'not bothered' about housework or ensuring the children had clean clothes.

A post-mortem examination revealed Fenton had ingested methadone at least twice before his death.

Emery has pleaded guilty to causing Fenton's death by gross negligence but denies charges of manslaughter and cruelty.

Christopher Hotten QC, prosecuting, alleged Emery deliberately gave the toddler concentrated heroine in order to 'knock him out' so she could take crack cocaine in peace.

The trial continues.

Paedophile Ex-policeman and Lover Plotted to Conceive Baby So They could Abuse And Rape It

Alexander McCracken:
 
A former police officer and his lover plotted to conceive a baby so they could abuse it, rape it and share it with other paedophiles, a court heard.

Alexander McCracken, 35, shared fantasies of raping and murdering newborn babies with his then-girlfriend Sharon Campbell and said he would 'deffo rape a little baby girl'. According to DailyMail, police found more than 500 hardcore child porn and bestiality images when they raided his home in Ayr, many of which were passed on to other paedophiles.

The pair are now facing jail after admitting three charges of possessing and distributing indecent images of children at Ayr Sheriff Court.

McCracken, who has a 10-year-old son, spent nine years with Strathclyde Police before being exposed in 2010 as a swinger and a £400-a-night bisexual prostitute, the Daily Record reported.

Police seized his computer and smartphone in last year's raid and found a string of sickening messages including one which suggests they breed a 'baby toy' and abuse it 'as soon as born'.
 Sharon Campbell:

One, from a user linked to McCracken's computer, says: 'Oh would deffo rape a little baby girl.' When asked if his girlfriend would let him, the reply was:

    'It's the wife typing lol. I would help him lol.''

The usernames 'sleazyperv79' and 'NepicoupleUK' were linked to the computer and mobile used by McCracken.  During one exchange, 'sleazyperv79' wrote:

    'Three month old getting molesting … I hope he snuffed her eventually.'

John Bradford, prosecuting, said:

     'The chat indicates that the user has a predilection to violently sexually abuse these infants to death, or allow others do do so. The communications include content of a paedophilic nature, comments on the rape and killing of newborn babies and what purports to be a couple trying for a baby so that they can sexually abuse her.'

He revealed that cybercrime experts found 551 such images in Yahoo Messenger chat files after the raid in January last year. The majority of the images were category five, the most depraved possible and most were passed among paedophiles between July 2012 and October 2013.

Mr. Bradford said: 'The images are predominantly of young girls, with the majority being newborn, babies and toddlers with a few up to about the age of eight.'

Police were alerted to the couple's actions by the National Online Child Abuse Protection service. Campbell, 39, who was a support worker for elderly people with mental health problems at a care home in Ayr, is no longer with McCracken.

Her lawyer, Peter Lockhart, said: 'This is a frankly shocking and appalling offence and she recognises that. She has co-operated fully throughout and there is no getting away from it that a custodial sentence must be uppermost in your mind.'

McCracken's lawyer Jill Malloy said he complied fully with strict bail conditions and had no unsupervised contact with females under 16 and no internet use where history could be hidden. She added that he had lost his job as a factory production worker.

Sheriff Scott Pattison called for reports before sentencing next month. He said: 'These offences are of the utmost seriousness. You are fortunate you have been prosecuted in the sheriff court.'

I Am Not Afraid Of Ure, She Can Go To Court Says Cynthia Morgan

 
Cynthia Morgan has said she is not afraid of Queen Ure who threatened to sue her if she does not drop the title of one of her songs named popori, a title Queen Ure claims she solely has a right too. While speaking with Saturday Beats, Morgan says she is not in any way ready to drop the song title because it does not belong to Ure or anyone and instead, she is making plans of shooting a video for the popular song. She also says instead of Ure 'hating' she would have expected her to support a growing artiste like her. Her words;
 
"My song, Popori, is still out and I am shooting the video for it very soon. Ure does not have anything on me and I don't have any case with her. Popori is my song. I produced the song and came up with the title. I am from Edo State and I have been hearing the word Popori from my childhood. It was funny when she said that she was the one that invented the word popori and holds the copyright. She cannot even use a copyright for the word. If she had told me that she trademarked the word, then it would have been a separate thing. Even if she trademarked the word, our songs have two different spellings. Continue…

"So if she takes the case to a court, I am sure they would say she is being funny. It is just as I bear Cynthia and I decide to trademark the name if someone else spells hers as 'Synthia;' I cannot sue the person because they are two different spellings. It is funny to me because it is like someone saying they invented the word love and no one else should use it. I don't have any problem with Ure and I am not scared of her. We don't have any case. If everyone should do what she did to me, then it means my fellow artistes would be suing themselves over songs like Azonto, Shoki, Caro, and the likes. I think it is a funny situation. Instead of her being a 'hater,' she should be supporting the newer generations of artistes and feel proud that I used the word, popori. It doesn't even make sense to me ".

Nigerian Banks To Start Mass Sacking Due To Naira Fall


Indications emerged yesterday that banks in the country may consider retrenchment and other cost-cutting measures if nothing concrete is done to arrest the free fall of Naira due to Federal Government devaluation policy.

This is just as the exchange rate of naira to a dollar remained at N215 at the black market in Lagos. Penultimate Wednesday, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) announced the closure of foreign windows in the country in order to save the nation's economy from collapse due to the Naira fall.
The policy was greeted with mixed feelings by experts and stakeholders in the nation's economy.

Our correspondent gathered that the downward swing of Naira in recent time is hitting the banks below the belt and would have no choice than to lay off some staff and cut some of their expenses in case the situation degenerates. It was further gathered that the cost-cutting measures would be necessary in order to pave way for the banks to remain afloat in business.

President of the Association of Senior Staff of Banks, Insurance and Financial Institution (ASSBIFI), Comrade Sunday Salako told our correspondent that banks and other financial institutions in the country are not immune from the shocks created by the Naira fall.
He said: "There is no way the Naira fall in the country will not affect the banks. Most of the banks in Nigeria also borrowed in foreign denominated currencies. They have to pay more in Naira now to service the loan because of the fall in Naira value. That will have a toll on the balance sheets of the banks.

"Beyoncé, to me, doesn't have a fu*king 'Purple Rain,' but she's the biggest thing on Earth. How can you be that big without at least one 'Sweet Home Alabama' or 'Old Time Rock & Roll'? People are like, 'Beyoncé's hot. Got a nice fu*king a.ss.' I'm like, 'Cool, I like skinny white chicks with big t*ts.' Doesn't really fu*king do much for me".
