My mother used to say that too much of everything is bad & quantity is the enemy of quality. I assume that includes doing features on people's songs. Even though we know how humble and down to earth 2face is, I still think he should say "No" more often, at least he should have said it to this song. Find out which song now!
To be very candid, how many people were shocked when Ayobami Ayoola was announced as winner of MTN Project Fame West Africa? How many? *waving* most right? It reflected in tweets, FB posts, BBM updates. But like they say, Talent is never enough.
The Covenant University graduate edged magical singers Marvellous, Adetoun, Ella and the likes to clinch the grand prize of N2.5 million, a Toyota Rav4 and a lucrative recording contract.
Marvelous emerged first runner up while Adetoun and Ella came second and third runner ups respectively.
What would have been a disaster was averted earlier today and we have God to thank for this. A Qatar Airways aircraft carrying about 248 passengers crash-landed at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos today after making distress calls to the control tower in Lagos.
I was wondering why this Hong Kong businessman Cecil Chao had to put that high price tag on his daughter but I later found out that the lady in question is an unrepentant lesbian, infact early this year, 33 year Gigi Chao married her lesbian partner of seven years. Wow! This is enough to boggle his father's mind.
The 'deal' which is worth $65million (N10bn) will fall on the laps of any man who can successfully woo and marry her.
His father said, 'I don't mind whether he is rich or poor. The important thing is that he is generous and kind hearted.
So I implore all able-bodied youngmen out there to start bidding ;) :D , however, the auction isn't open to ladies 3-| >:/
En en, I just remembered and I'm serious about this, I learnt some Nigerian men have been sending requests. Lol! We no dey carry last mehn!

EMEKA ROLLAS IS THE NEW PRESIDENT OF ACTORS GUILD OF NIGERIA (AGN)
For real right? Needless to say Zinedine Zidane's drama staged at the 110th minute during 2006 World Cup final with Italy tainted his international career. We might have gotten over the news a long time ago but it made an indelible impression on Algerian-born artist Adel Abdessemed.
He erected and unveiled the five-metre high bronze statue outside the Pompidou museum in Paris.
I wish I could capture Zidane's reaction on this. :D But really, is this an honour?

PHOTOS: HOT, STUNNING INI EDO STEPS OUT WITH HUBBY
The news isn't that Chelsea midfielder, John Mikel Obi deleted his official twitter yesterday because he allegedly couldn't handle the racial tweets directed at him following his grave mistake during Chelsea's match against Juventus on wednesday.
Chelsea posted some tweets to explain the 25year-old's stance, however I find the tweets confusing. The first, "Not true Mikel quit Twitter due to messages received. He'd wanted to leave for a while & deleted his acct today without looking at it. #CFC"
Few hours later, this came up, "Abuse on social networks is abhorrent. Racist tweets towards Mikel are totally unacceptable. Police informed. #CFC supports strongest action."
￼If it wasn't about racial tweets, I wonder why the second tweet came up. Anyways he's sorry about the error.
Here's a peek at the behind-the-scene pictures of The Gods Are Still Not To Blame movie; a modern cinematic adaptation of the Greek Classic, Oedipus.
The movie which premieres in December was shot in locations in Nigeria, Cameroon and Cote d'Ivoire. It employed the use of five languages; English, French, Yoruba, Hausa and Igbo; it however hopes to cement the Nigerian movie industry on the international map.
The thrilling, educative and topical film tells the story of a child who was born to King Adedoyin, while the naming ceremony is in progress, the leading clergy goes into a trance and proclaims that the baby will kill his father and marry his mother. While still trying to grapple with the situation, the traditional leader enters and proclaims the child as an unlucky messenger of the gods.
The child is taken to Cameroon inorder to avert the prophecy. Twenty eight years later, the child is also told the same prophecy which makes him leave Cameroon for Nigeria inorder to deter the prophecy but instead leads hi to fulfill the prophecy.
Noteworthy is that the movie takes an existentialist stance at the role of a man in the fulfilment of his destiny and upholds the view that man, rather than the Supreme Force should be blamed for the consequences of his actions. It is the opinion of the playwright that if the baby had been allowed to live and grow up with his parents instead of living with foster parents in a foreign land, probably the prophecy would not have been fulfilled.
Produced by Funke Fayoyin and Byron Ene, the film is the first cinematic offering of her Catalyst Communications Limited Productions. The stellar cast of Nollywood stars featured include Carol King, Bayo Alawiye, Seun Akindele, Iretiola Doyle, Gabriel Afolayan, Gloria Anozie-Young, Kareem Adepoju, Akin Lewis, Yemi Elebuibon, Dele Odule, Bukky Ajayi, Moji Olaiya, Nobert Young, Funsho Adeolu and introducing Omowunmi Dada.
