Hello lovelies. How was your weekend? Welcome to a new week and a brand new segment on GISTville where you get to read all the aproko news you must have missed + news i didn’t have time to blog about. And oh yes, the first two readers to comment win airtime, so please ensure you use your correct email address so i can contact you.
Last week was a mixture of sad, shocking and hilarious news. First, i was so sad to hear my fellow Deltan Kefee is currently in coma due to a pregnancy-induced high blood pressure. It happened during her 14-hour flight to Chicago. Could the long trip have affected her? I really don’t know o but please let us pray for her to survive this.
Then came the news of ex-Nafdac boss, Dora Akunyuli‘s death. So sad to see her go.
Okay, down to our gist proper. I’m sure you all must have watched Tiwa Savage‘s latest video ‘Wanted‘. Its still trending o, to the extent that one house wife wrote an open letter to Tiwa. She explained to Tiwa why everyone is pissed with her new video. My favourite excerpt from the letter is this: “I believe, you wanted to say something with the â€˜Wantedâ€™ video, but what ever that message was, we didnâ€™t get it because you didnâ€™t allow us that opportunity! Please, I didnâ€™t want to say this but a husband who truly loves you, is supposed to protect his â€˜waresâ€™ and not make you do whatever to stay relevant in the public eye!”
I hope the backlash doesn’t continue. Abeg we don tire, let’s move on now. By the way congrats to Tiwa on winning Best Female Artiste of the year award at the 2014 MTV MAMAs.
Don Jazzy also fell under my radar. If you need a new job, just make sure you’re fired because of Don Jazzy, he’ll hire you sharply. Lol. A staff of Delta Airlines was fired just because he allowed Don Jazzy to ride the airport shuttle with him. If you were the one, would you say no to Don Jazzy? Haba! The management fired him because of that but guess what? He’s now a staff of Mavin Empire. I have to start tracking Don Jazzy’s movement. Lol.
People are still talking about Kimye’s wedding. That reminds me. There’s one picture i want you guys to see. Abeg, help me judge the matter.
What was this bride thinking? Are we now short of concept for wedding entrance that we now involve poor babies? Thumbs down jor.
Did you guys see D’Banj’s tweet yesterday where he told fans to beg Kanye to shoot the video for Scapegoat remix? I really don’t know what’s going on with D’Banj. Rumours are flying everywhere. Some say he now begs some Nigerian artistes to feature on their songs. Haba! I also read another open letter on Nairaland where the writer showed no mercy to D’Banj. Here’s what i say to those capitalizing on D’Banj’s fall to mock him: “The fallen shall rise again“. But D’Banj, can’t you just kiss and makeup with Don Jazzy? It might put an end to all this though.
Remember Kenny Saint Brown popularly known as KSB? She said she is going into politics and will contest next year for a seat in the Lagos State House of Assembly. She said she’s not doing this because she’s broke. Lol. I hope it turns out better than her not-so successful music career. You never can tell and I say this with a straight face.
On the foreign scene, does anyone know what is going on with Rihanna? I don’t understand the struggle by these artistes to be nude at every opportunity, even on the red carpet.
Oh yes twitter lovers, there’s this article by Tope Olofin i think you should see. She gave tips on how to increase your twitter followers. Read it HERE
This is where i draw the curtain.
PS: I’m thinking of giving out one free ad space weekly to a lucky entrepreneur here as an incentive. I’ve not decided yet but let’s keep our fingers crossed shall we?
Winners of the airtime will be announced by 12pm tomorrow. Have a lovely day GISTvillers and thanks for always reading. You guys rock!!!
