Halima Abubakar Declares Unapologetically, “If I Say I Am A Virgin, Then I Am”

Featured Image

Halima Abubakar one of Nollywood’s most controversial actress got massively shaded last week after she declared she was a virgin much to the chagrin of many.

In a chat with Sunday Scoop, the actress said she couldn’t understand why people were doubting she was really a virgin.

She had words for those jeering at her to get married and make babies that she has nine years before she hits menopause. 

“Why would people become annoyed because I said I am a virgin.” Ms Abubakar said,Just because I’m in the industry does not mean I am badly behaved. Not everyone is sexually active.”

Halima Abubakar insists she is a virgin

“You can have a boyfriend and not be sexually active. The reaction I got shows the mentality of the people.”

“If I say I’m a virgin, I am and if I say I am not, then I am not.” She declared.

Ms Halima futher stated, “They tell me to go get married, should I go after someone else’s husband?”

“Everybody thinks one should get married from age 18. A lot of marriages are complicated.”

“Marriage will come when it will come, one doesn’t need to force it. People are getting divorced with pregnancies because they got married under pressure.”

The 31-year-old said people should quit the pressure of marriage while declaring she wouldn’t have kids outside marriage.

“We should let people be. People are saying if you are not getting married, go and get kids because menopause is approaching.” Halima quipped.

“What kind of thing is that? Is it your menopause?  I still have about nine years before I hit menopause all things being equal.”

“I am not one of those people that will kill themselves because of marriage. I can’t have kids outside marriage.” The star concluded.

Davido Clarifies His Style Of Music As Afro-Fusion And Not Afro-Beat

Featured Image

Davido clarified his style or genre of music as Afro Fusion as the 23-year-old artist refused to define his songs with the generally used ‘Afrobeat’ or ‘Afropop’.

While speaking with Ebro Darden of New York top radio station, Hot 97 on Apple Radio Beats 1, Davido said his hit song Gobe was more Calypso driven and further explained why. 

Ebro queried the Nigerian singer, “Can you articulate the difference between Afro Pop and Afro Beat?”

“I wouldn’t call my music Afro Beat I will call mine Afro Fusion because it’s just too different.” Davido responded.

“You know the originator of Afro Beat of course is Fela Kuti. Fela has a sound which I can say has the heavy baseline, the Rhodes, brass instrument, and the percussion is different.”

Davido says he doesn’t do Afro Beat but Afro Fusion

“If you ask me, Gobe is Calypso, Afro mixed with Calypso.” He continued. “But I feel like the Afrobeats is jut more catchy and has caught the waves since time.” 

“I can’t really tell you the difference between Afropop and Afrobeats.” The HKN boss concluded while adding, “Cos I know some songs that I won’t call Afrobeats; I would call [them] Afropop or Afrotrap.”

Davido is not just refining his genre of music, he is also giving back to society as he disclosed he will be giving four less privileged students full scholarships in 2016.

The students who will be selected on merit will be recipients of his foundation established on the legacy of his late-mum, Veronica Adeleke.

Jared Leto Hoping For Batman Vs Joker Movie

Featured Image

Jared Leto Hoping For Batman Vs Joker Movie – As Suicide Squad prepares to hit cinemas later this week, actor Jared Leto is hoping the movie leads to many more.

Leto plays one of the movie’s lead characters, The Joker, and he revealed that he’d love the chance to go up against Batman in a movie in the future.

“I hope it’s an introduction (to the Joker) and not the end!” Leto told the Toronto Sun in a recent interview. “Because I could easily just play the Joker a couple more times and then retire. Because it’s so fulfilling and so creative and it’s so imaginative. It’s really difficult to think about doing anything else!”

The Joker and Batman have plenty of history in the comics, and it wouldn’t be hard creating such a movie for the Dark Knight, currently played by Ben Affleck.

“I think it would be incredible to see Batman and the Joker go head-to-head!” Leto told the Toronto Sun. “This Batman and this Joker. I mean, I don’t know, that might be too much! But that would be fun.”

We’d have to wait for Suicide Squad at least, with Batman having a cameo in the movie. Director David Ayer has also praised Leto’s acting in the movie.

It’s not just playing the role and doing the work on set in front of the camera,” Ayer said to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe. “The way he treated it and how serious he was about it, that sort of rubbed off on the crew and the other actors. He really made the movie and the photography of the film much more of an event.”

Wenger: Wilshere Out With Knee Injury

Featured Image

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has revealed Wilshere has been missing in pre-season preparations due to a knee injury.

The Arsenal midfielder was absent from the win over Guadalajara. And the England international will miss the match against Viking.

The England international struggled to make an impact at Euro 2016 after managing just one Premier League start last season, but Wenger claimed Wilshere’s latest injury is not serious.

“It’s a slight patella problem but I think he should be with us on tour on Thursday,” Wenger said. “I hope he will, yes.”

Santi Cazorla is another Arsenal midfielder to have struggled with injury, but the Spaniard got more minutes under his belt against Guadalajara.

“He is our technical security in midfield and we missed him for five or six months last season,” Wenger said. “At the moment he is not completely there on the fitness front. That’s why I took him off at half-time.

“He’s a bit behind the others physically but I think he will be alright, maybe not on August 14th, but at the end of August he should be alright,” he said, referring to the Gunners’ first match of the Premier League season at home to Liverpool.

Behind The Fire: Ani Iyoho Reveals Movie Fire Scene Was A Misunderstanding

Featured Image

Actor Ani Iyoho shares his exasperation on the “huge misunderstanding, misrepresentation and misinterpretation”of a movie fire-scene where he appeared burnt.

On Wednesday, July 27, emails were disseminated to media houses regards the Nollywood actor being burnt alive.

He was filming a fire scene for the movie, “Behind The Wheels”. Directed by Stanlee Ohikhuere.

This caused controversy as everyone was undecided if it was a publicity stunt or reality.

Ani Iyoho has placated our curiosity as he shared on Facebook the facts of the matter.

Read his notes below

To my friends

For most of you who have ever commented or sent a chat to me you know I do all I can to respond to them all.

So it hurt me deeply to keep you in silence and in the dark during this period. I couldn’t avoid it.

The calls were maddening. My phone had to be turned off till the matter was resolved in public where it started.

It worried the production that anything I might say as an individual may be misinterpreted further worsening the situation.

I’m truly sorry beyond words for the emotional stress and inconvenience this might have caused you.

It wasn’t a publicity stunt for me as some might still want to have you believe.

It was a huge misunderstanding, misrepresentation and misinterpretation of events of that day and it took a toll on me in ways I cannot explain.

I am however extremely humbled at the love, care and support I got from you during this period. Words fail me. I am indebted to you.

Thanks for being there for me and my family. God bless you and yours. Amen

I am well. It was a movie fire scene that went well.

Ani Iyoho

Do you think it’s still extreme for Nigerians to shoot a live-fire scene?

ICYMI: Wolfsburg Sign Blaszczykowski

Featured Image

Wolfsburg have announced the official signing of Jakub Blaszczykowski from Dortmund for an undisclosed fee.

The winger joins the bundesliga club, signing a three-year deal and will be at the club till 2019. He spent last season on loan at Fiorentina, and has been deemed surplus to requirements following the arrival of Schurrle.

The winger has become Wolfsburg’s seventh signing of the summer following the earlier arrivals of Yannick Gerhardt, Jeffrey Bruma and Josip Brekalo.

Josuha Guilavogui and Daniel Didavi also joined Wolfsburg on permanent deals ahead of the new Bundesliga campaign, while Borja Mayoral has arrived on loan from Real Madrid.

“Jakub Blaszczykowski is a player that can do any team good – not just due to his footballing qualities, but also because he is a prime example of determination, willingness and passion, who always identifies with his clubs to 100 per cent,” Wolfsburg’s sporting director Klaus Allofs told the club’s official website.

“With that in mind, we are absolutely delighted that he will be wearing the VfL colours in the future.”

Head coach Dieter Hecking added: “With him in the side, we increase our variability and penetrative power distinctly down the right flank.

“Jakub will also bring us further with his immense experience and help us to achieve our goals, such as qualifying for international football again. He is a massive win for us.”

Blaszczykowski won two Bundesliga titles during his time with Dortmund.

Why Do Women Have Orgasms? Scientists May Have Uncovered Evolutionary Mystery

Featured Image

Scientist may have uncovered the evolutionary mystery behind why women have evolved to have orgasms at all – knowing well that they play no obvious role in human reproduction.

Scholars at Yale and the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital have revealed that the female orgasm may once have had an extremely important purpose.

A recent research by the scholars on the debated topic which goes as far back as Aristotle revealed that female orgasms aid human reproduction by stimulating ovulation via the production of two hormones in the brain, called prolactin and oxytocin.

Mostly, research dedicated to finding out the point of the female orgasm has focused on humans. By looking at other mammals, scientists now believe it does have a part to play.

“Prior studies have tended to focus on evidence from human biology and the modification of a trait rather than its evolutionary origin,” said Gunter Wagner, from Yale University. He and Mihaela Pavličev from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital have now published a study on the role of the female orgasm in the journal JEZ-Molecular and Developmental Evolution.

In the journal, the team wrote: “Aristotle noted the main obstacle in explaining the role of female orgasm: human females can conceive without it … Equally suggestive is the statistics, showing human female orgasm during sexual intercourse is uncommon, in particular without additional clitoral stimulation.”

The Mirror quoted the journal as saying that in many mammals, the production of these hormones acts as a trigger for the ovaries to release an egg.

In some species, ovulation is actually induced by the male – in other words, the female only produces an egg after having an “orgasm”.

Although, these days, the human ovarian cycle does not depend on sexual activity, the scientists believe that human reproduction may once have operated this way.

It was only later that “cyclical” ovulation evolved – otherwise known as the menstrual cycle – and the female orgasm became superfluous from a reproductive perspective.

The scientists said that the evolutionary shift from “induced ovulation” to “cyclical ovulation” may also have prompted the relocation of the clitoris from inside the vagina to outside.

“This anatomical change made it less likely that the clitoris receives adequate stimulation during intercourse to lead to the neuro-endocrine reflex known in humans as orgasm,” they said.

Before you get too depressed, the scientists added that the evolutionary ancestor of the orgasm probably wasn’t what we think of as an orgasm today.

“It is important to stress that it didn’t look like the human female orgasm looks like now,” said Mihaela Pavlicev, who helped lead the study.

“We think that [the hormonal surge] is the core that was maybe modified further in humans.”

Well that’s something at least.

This study appeared in the August 1 edition of the journal JEZ-Molecular and Developmental Evolution.

A post shared by Eric on July 11, read:

“In 11 days, July 30, I will be marrying David and become Mr. Eric Shoen-Ukre in Rochester, NY. I am struggling to focus on work as I think about seeing all of my friends and family joining us at the small wedding or that evening at Tilt nightclub. I’m feeling loved when I need it with all the crazy emotions from the current state of our country and world.”

Naij gathered that on their wedding day, Eric also shared this:

“How to start your wedding day: 1. Forget to grab a towel before showering and leave slippery wet footprints all over the house (made me giggle and good thing I’m the only one here) 2. Try on your tux and realize that you have your fiancés pants that will definitely not fit you. 3. Drive to hotel to switch pants and forget breakfast is in the oven. Return to house with crispy but edible breakfast. Embracing it all with love and laughter. Today will be amazing. I get to marry the most amazing man”

The couple have both agreed to add each other’s surnames to their names, with David bearing ‘David Shoen-Ukre’ and Eric bearing ‘Eric T. Shoen-Ukre’.

Video Review: Seyi Shay Releases Visuals To ‘Airbrush’ And It’s Beautiful

Featured Image

Seyi Shay has been growing, learning and turning all her experiences to songs and videos with every new work surpassing the one before it.

Airbrush, her latest achievement is proof of just how far she has come and how far ahead she is in comparison to some of our Nigerian female singers. 

In Airbrush, Seyi Shay’s voice is beautiful and the production is captivating enough to keep you glued till the end.

She sounds graceful, loved, hurt, and passionate all rolled in one.

A snippet of the words to  Airbrush.

Take a perfect picture, I’ll be in it with you, smile into the lens cos the flash will make it look okay, okay.

No, you wouldn’t know the difference, staring at the image, says a million words but the truth ain’t even in the frame, no way.

You can hide it, fight it, try it, buy it but that ain’t you. We can twist it how we want it but we can’t fake the truth.

Soften the lines, beautiful time, we are living proof, that you can’t airbrush reality, no you can’t airbrush reality.

In the video, you’ll notice her use of various characters, like people who just pass through your life everyday, everyone smiling. Maybe some are sad, there are those who are happy; her song challenges the mind to inquire if it’s all just a facade, hence the Airbrush. 

Read: Video Review: Rihanna Goes Savage On New “Needed Me” Video

Yet, the characters that stick out are two couples. You see them and you think of love. If you have ever loved, Seyi’s video will resonate well with you and even if you haven’t, you can feel a yearning to have a love like the one portrayed in Airbrush.

Still you don’t want to get ahead of your emotions. To really understand the story Seyi Shay is telling, you need to listen to the words she’s saying.

On a snip she continues:

There is an image on the bed, I don’t recognize this cos behind the smoking mirrors, everything’s a big disguise. Oh why.

From afar we look so pretty isn’t it a pity, if people only knew what was wrong with me and you, they’d see we are blind, we have fooled the masses baby looking so happy baby it’s just a front.

The perfect couple making you yearn for the kind of love Seyi is singing about isn’t really a love you want as they are imperfect.

The man is ousted for cheating on his woman and she gets so unforgivably mad, she has to leave. That same night, he hung out with friends, tried to drink away his pain and came back to a lonely home.

There’s a kind of love you’d feel for someone, walking away would break you but make you strong in time. Yet, if you decided to forgive and make it work, trust will always be an issue.

Seyi paints a story of love had and love lost. Painted feelings and facades of public display of emotions, all in all, it’s a video you would watch over and over again.

Read: Video Review: Darey Art Alade’s “Pray For Me” Will Move You To Tears

Airbrush’s production is on a level of its own.

The lighting, the effects, the scenery, Seyi’s costume, everything was in sync. Nothing was too much, or too low. It looked like a video Alicia Keys would have done.

Beautiful song, beautiful production, beautiful video, we can’t help but love Airbrush and neither can you, once you watch it.

Featured Image

The winners of the 2016 Enterprise Challenge, Keturah Ovio Onoweya and Sophia Ike Onu met Sir Richard Branson, the Founder and Chairman of the Virgin Group on Wednesday 29 June in Oxford United Kingdom for a mentoring session.

At the mentoring session, He gave ideas and advice on how to run a sustainable and profitable business in this current economic environment.  He also shared some personal business experiences during the meeting.

 

After the session, Keturah and Sophia joined a number of promising entrepreneurs from the Virgin StartUp and Virgin Media Business’ VOOM competition for Lunch and Networking. They also attended this year’s Sunday Times Fast Track 100 event and awards.

Sophia founder of The5kshop said “The Enterprise Challenge has been an incredible journey; mentally tough in so many ways but also incredibly stimulating and enjoyable. Meeting Sir Richard Branson was so surreal! Moments before he walked into the room, I was a bit anxious but the minute he came in and we got chatting, it really felt like talking to an old friend. It was impressive how well he understood my business as he casually shared intelligent advice and tips. Richard is definitely that lecturer that can make the toughest subject seem so easy. He answered all our questions with details.

“It’s so easy to understand why he’s referred to as the Godfather of Entrepreneurship in the United Kingdom.  Thank you Richard for being you, continue to inspire”

Keturah founder of Qeturah Dot Com said: “Meeting Richard Branson was a once in a lifetime experience. He is probably best known as one of the first ‘positive disruptors’ in business and has always been a real inspiration to me. Talking to him made me believe that everything is possible – you just have to make it possible, and I look forward to seeing how I can apply his words of wisdom and encouragement to my life and business going forward.”

More than 10,800 young Nigerian entrepreneurs entered the competition, which was conceived and organised by British Council and Virgin Atlantic in partnership with Zenith Bank and Samsung, in order to help talented young Nigerians develop their entrepreneurial skills.

Adrian Bird, Head of Nigeria for Virgin Atlantic, said: “Virgin Atlantic is delighted to support the Enterprise Challenge once again. We are a company built on entrepreneurship and are proud to support this initiative which enables young business people to let their dreams fly.  It has been exciting to see so many young Nigerians come up with new and innovative ideas that attempt to tackle the most pressing challenges facing the country. Keturah and Sophia have shown incredible skill, talent and dedication and we believe they have a very bright future ahead of them.

Lucy Pearson, Acting Country Director of British Council Nigeria comments: “The work of the British Council in education and the wider society helps transform not only national education systems, but builds more inclusive, open societies and increases young people’s opportunities for a better future. The Enterprise Challenge fits perfectly into this remit, effectively helping to develop the flourishing talent within Nigeria. After all, entrepreneurs make a difference not only to their immediate families and communities, but as the business leaders and employers of the future.”

Sola Oladipo Executive Director Zenith Bank Plc says: “One of the biggest hurdles in business – particularly for young entrepreneurs – is connecting with those who ‘know’, and have already succeeded, and finance. The Enterprise Challenge addresses both these and we’re proud to be a partner.”

 

A representative for Samsung Electronics West Africa, said: “We at Samsung deeply understand the importance of encouraging the average Nigerian youth to innovate and create products, as well as become wealth generators for themselves. To this end, we strongly support this initiative by British Council and Virgin Atlantic and are throwing our complete weight behind this project. We challenge Nigerian youth to explore their capabilities and talents to create products and services that will grow into big and deeply rooted brands in the near future.”

The winners have since received a financial grant worth N2m each and will all benefit from continued support from the initiative’s partners. In addition, Enterprise Challenge winners will receive a fully-funded scholarship to attend a five-day entrepreneurship foundation course at the Branson Centre for Entrepreneurship in South Africa.

Justin Bieber Rejects Biggest Paycheck Of His Career From Donald Trump 😲

Featured Image

Justin Bieber said no to a five-million-dollars paycheck (N1,577,275,000.00) from US presidential hopeful, Donald Trump.

Reported as one of the highest pay-outs he would have ever received for a show, Bieber decided there are some things money can’t buy.

The paycheck was for Bieber to perform at the Republican National Convention, RNC, for supporters of Donald Trump.

The singer refused to perform, with NBA superstar LeBron James reportedly a huge influence on the Bieb’s decision.

Hollywood’s Creative Arts Agency, CAA, the talent agency representing Bieber said it received an offer from a promoter saying he would like the singer to perform for 45 minutes at a venue near Quicken Loans Arena, where the RNC was held.

The promoter also said the event wasn’t political and Justin didn’t need to endorse Trump or any GOP, (Grand Old Party aka Republicans) policies.

Justin refused to perform at a GOP convention

According to the contract, GOP donors were bankrolling the whole gig. The document also indicated the GOP would take care of Bieber’s production expenses and the amount would be paid first before the singer arrived.

Justin Beiber’s manager Scooter Braun, had major issues with the gig as he said it was political, despite what the offer said. The CAA also shared Scooter’s thoughts.

Braun who is a strong Hillary Clinton supporter asked Justin to query the promoters about putting up ‘Black Lives Matter’ banners in the venue.

The promoters replied that he “couldn’t display ‘Black Lives Matter’ banners, but the donors would accept banners that read ‘All Lives Matter’.”

The last straw was the promoters’ lie that LeBron James had been contacted and would also be available at the convention. When Braun got in touch with LeBron’s people, they were told the NBA star wouldn’t be at the convention, and advised Bieber not to go as well.

All this made the offer least acceptable to Braun.

While it was Justin’s call at the end of the day, Scooter Brauan told Bieber he would quit working for him if he took up the offer. The singer’s majorly African-American band also rejected the GOP’s offer and weren’t interested in doing the show.

In the end, Justin Bieber figured he couldn’t lose a great manager, a great band, a great fan-base and a great life over Trump’s GOP’s $5 Million fee.

Game Of Thrones Certainly To End After Season 8, But Expect A Spinoff

Game Of Thrones Certainly To End After Season 8, But Expect A Spinoff

There are strong indications that American fantasy drama television series, Game of Thrones, would definitely be coming to an end after its eighth season, amid discussions of a spinoff

The announcement was made by Casey Bloys, HBO’s new programming chief, at the Television Critics Association press tour in Los Angeles on Saturday.

READ ALSO: Season 7 Of ‘Game Of Thrones’ May Be Delayed

Bloys stated that there are only two more seasons left. He combined this with the fact that season seven will be shorter than normal, and it will be delayed.

The HBO president also disclosed that the station will abide by the wishes of David Benioff and Dan Weiss, the two men behind the hit series – both of whom believe that the show should come to a natural end after eight seasons.

“Believe me, as the new programming president coming in, if I could get them to do more, I would take 10 more seasons. But we take their lead on what they think they can do the best version of the show,” Mr Bloys said.

As for the specific number of episodes, season seven is “locked in” at seven. However, season eight may have more or less.

“They know we’ll take as many as they’ll give us,” Bloys said.

The seventh series, which begins next summer, will have seven episodes rather than 10.

He added: “Now that winter has arrived on Game of Thrones, executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss felt that the storylines of the next season would be better served by starting production a little later than usual, when the weather is changing.”

“Instead of the show’s traditional spring debut, we’re moving the debut to summer to accommodate the shooting schedule.”

Although Game of Thrones will be ending, Mr Bloys did not dismiss the possibility of a spin off series.

“We’ve talked about it. It’s something I’m not opposed to, but of course it has to make sense creatively.”

Militants Suspend Declaration Of Independence In Niger Delta

Featured Image

A resurgent militant group in Niger Delta, the Adaka Boro Avengers (ABA,) has announced the suspension of its planned declaration of Niger Delta territory an independent republic.

READ ALSO: Militant Group Threatens To Declare Niger Delta A Republic On August 1

A statement issued by General Edmos Ayayeibo, the group’s spokesman, on Sunday as regards to the decision, reiterated the intention of the group to cripple Nigeria’s economy.

The statement said, “will not stop until the Nigerian government is ready to sit on a roundtable to dialogue and to restructure Nigeria.”

It also warned the Federal Government against having any discussion with the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) and described them as “greedy fellows” who are only after “stipends.”

The statement continued: “We received calls from prominent leaders like Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, Mrs. Ankio Briggs, Chief. E. K. Clark and especially King Alfred Diete Spiff calling on the freedom fighters to abort their mission to declare Niger Delta Republic,” adding that “the Nigerian government has enslaved…the people of Niger Delta region.”

“We adhere to the voice of our people, because our struggle is for the Niger Delta people and not for selfish reason. But this is not the end. More is yet to come. Our mission to cripple the economy of the Nigerian nation will not stop until the Nigerian government is ready to sit on a roundtable to dialogue and to restructure the Nigeria.

“Unless that, we will not stop until Nigeria becomes a zero economy. We are also saying this for the benefit of President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigerian government to stop wasting their time with those greedy fellows that call themselves MEND because nothing good will come out of them rather than sabotage. Those old fools cannot stop us and they know it very well. We know what they are after is all about stipends.

“Everything they are saying, not even one will be accomplished. We will never agree with anything they say and henceforth MEND should watch their back because we have tolerated them for a very long time.

“Enough is enough, since they want to set confusion in the Niger Delta we will start from them.”

The group had on Sunday, July 17 issued a three-week notice of its intention to declare the Niger Delta an independent republic on August 1.

Rooney: Ibrahimovic Is One Of The Best Strikers

Featured Image

Wayne Rooney has revealed his excitement at Zlatan Ibrahimovic coming into the club. Stating he can still make an impact at the club.

The veteran striker moved to Manchester United from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

And even at the age of 34, Rooney believes Ibrahimovic still has a lot to offer his new employers.

“He’s one of the best strikers, and a big personality. You can see he wants to be a really important player for us,” the England international explained to the Daily Mail.

“After training he is already talking about how we can get the best out of each other, you can see he’s got this great work ethic.”

Ibrahimovic will vie with young talents Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford in the forward line under Jose Mourinho.

Those riches up front remind Rooney of the club’s former all-conquering attack under Sir Alex Ferguson.

“I think the players feel this is more like the old Manchester United. It’s not just the new signings, we’ve got Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford from last season who made such an impact,” he said.

“We’re in a very good spot now, we think we can challenge for the Premier League, and we want to put a marker down, in the Community Shield with Leicester.

“I know it’s a one-off game, but we want to show we can win a trophy early on — we feel that’s an important event for us.”

“It Is Time For Me To Explode At PSG” – Lucas

Featured Image

PSG midfielder, Lucas has stated he wants to explode in the new season for PSG. And he wants to do so under Unai Emery.

The Brazil international joined PSG in 2012 for €45 million. He scored 13 goals in all competitions last season.

And despite speculation linking him to Atletico and Liverpool, Lucas is ready to do more for PSG.

“I hope I have a lot to give [this season] – lots to offer this team and Paris Saint-Germain,” he told Goal. “I have progressed since I arrived here [and now] it’s time for me to explode.

“This is the time to take my place. This will come with work and discipline. I really try to respect what the coach asks me to help the team.

“I feel good and I am very positive for this season. I will give my life to make supporters dream and give titles to PSG.”

Lucas revealed that intensive work on PSG’s play out of possession had been a feature of Emery’s first pre-season campaign since taking over from Laurent Blanc.

“Work, work and work,” he said. “We did a lot of physical [work], a lot on tactics. We had two training sessions per day. It’s very intense, even a little tiring, but it will be very good for us during the season.

“It’s difficult to talk about differences, but I think Emery works a lot on the tactical aspects and movement without the ball. That’s the biggest difference.

“It’s to ensure that we are very organised on the ground. I feel also that we will improve our game recovery, which was a bit of a fault for us, for me, before.

“As soon as we lose the ball, the coach asks that we organise [ourselves] to recover very quickly. That’s why we work hard on movement and positioning.”

360Focus: Ric Hassani Is (Really) The African Gentleman

Featured Image

If you are a lover of soulful pop, there is no artist from the last 4 years that will excite you as much as Ric Hassani and his sound will.

An artist who styles himself as the African Gentleman, you are likely to spot Ric in classic Western style clothing, made with African print.

Be it an ankara jacket with matching pants, or a white shirt with print bowtie, or a colourful tie and dye shirt, one thing is certain – he comes out looking dapper as befitting a gentleman.

Ric Hassani-1 _MG_2617we Ric Hassani-2

Ric Hassani explains that his fashion direction was inspired by Triple MG co-founder, Ubi Franklin who advised him, “Ric, let your music look like you, you should look like what you sound like, OR sound like what you look like whichever comes first”.

Ric gave it some thought and decided his music was all about being classic, modern and African so started with his current style.

Ric Hassani, born Ikechukwu Eric Ahiauzu in Port Harcourt has been pursuing music full time for a little more than a year now. Last year, he released two projects – a compilation album called African Tour Select Singes 2015 and an EP tagged Ric Hassani – The Acoustic EP.

Ric Hassani – African Tour Select Singes 2015
Ric Hassani – The Acoustic EP

His music, just like his sense of fashion, is as suave as could be. In his 2015 critically acclaimed single, Gentleman, Ric sings of the worth of the African woman. With smooth vocals, beautiful acoustic instrumental, Gentleman is the modern equivalent of 2Face’s African Queen.


In the video, Ric Hassani subtly condemns domestic abuse against women by portraying the story of a woman who finally got strong enough to leave her abusive partner. Gentleman is the first single off Ric Hassani’s highly anticipated debut album, The African Gentleman.

This is one artist lovers of deep Nigerian music can place all their bets on.

Nick Jonas was offered two-million dollars N636,500,000 by the Republicans to perform in a thank-you concert, Sunday, July 24, in Cleveland which he turned down because they refused to use a “Black Lives Matter” banner.

The Republic National Convention, RNC, also tried to get Justin Beiber to perform at the convention and even offered him three-million dollars more than Nick but Biebs turned it down for the same reason as Mr Jonas.

Nick Jonas turned down two-million dollars from Donald Trump’s donors

Beiber was also informed he wasn’t allowed to make any remarks on Donald Trump or the GOP, Grand Old Party, also known as Republicans, though he was offered the option to post an “All Lives Matter” banner.

TMZ sources revealed,  Nick Jonas’s two-million dollars offer was to play the gig, and a “private donor” would pay him directly. Probably after being rejected by Beiber.

It added that the GOP-individual who contacted Nick’s people said the event was an “All Lives Matter” event.

Besides the BLM Vs ALM ruckus being a reason to turn down two-million dollars, Jonas already had a  Roc Nation event in NYC lined up.

GOP is called Grand Old Party also known as Republicans which is Donald Trump’s backing party and they detest their oldest rivals, the Democrats.

Beiber and Jonas bid goodbye to millions of dollars.

Well, we are curious to know, “bearing your present financial situation in mind, would you reject or accept two-million dollars if it conflicted with your principles?”
