“South Africa Is Leading The Hip-Hop Movement In Africa” – Cassper Nyovest

Featured Image

South African rapper, Cassper Nyovest has finally disclosed his views on the state of rap culture in Nigeria. The rapper seems to share the same opinion with M.I on the song, “You Rappers Should Fix Up Your Life”.

While speaking in an interview with PulseNG, Cassper said, South African Hip-Hop is currently leading the rap hip-hop game in Africa.

He said;

“Yes, South African Hip-hop is in the forefront of African Hip-hop in general. It might not be as popular as it is in South Africa in Nigeria.

But I know for a fact that the rappers from Nigeria are kinda unknown in SA. If we talk about crossing over, I know that a lot of people in Nigeria know about my music. I know that in Kenya and Ghana it’s the same thing.

I’m not just talking about me, I’m talking about the movement. Sarkodie is big in Ghana, but are there other rappers who are as big as Sarkodie from Ghana? The South African Hip-hop movement is big across, also in London, New York…we are out there performing in different countries.

Me saying that might offend people here. They might feel that I’m taking shots at Nigerian music. But that’s not the deal. If we are to discuss in terms of numbers and appeal across the world, it’s just the way it is.”

Walcott Joins Everton For £20 Million

Featured Image

Everton have completed the signing of Theo Walcott for £20 million, tying him down for the next three years.

The 28-year-old who was Arsenal’s longest serving player scored 108 goals for the club, and left in search of more playing time.

Walcott has not made a PL appearance this season. And in a bid to lock down a spot in the World Cup squad, he has joined Everton.

“I’ve come to Everton because I want the Club to push to the next level,” Walcott told the official Everton website. “I’m very ambitious and I’ve come here because I want the Club to push to the next level,” Walcott said. And with the players that have come in, I feel like the next level can be reached.

 

“I’m very excited to be starting a new chapter and I felt this was the right place for me to be. The manager is very ambitious and I feel like the Club is going in the right direction.

 

“Everton is a club with a great history. The fans are always passionate, they’re great and I always used to find it very tough playing here.

 

“The Club has won trophies but I want them to win trophies now. The manager is very hungry and it’s just what I need. I’ve had a couple of chats with him and straightaway I felt that hunger and that desire that he wanted from me. I need that and I wanted that.

 

“I want to be part of something which he’s building and, like I said before, it’s a very ambitious club.

 

“The fact there’s a new stadium going to be developing in the next few years, it’s exciting times for Everton Football Club. I’m dead excited and I just want to do what I do best which is playing football and expressing myself because I’m excited again, I really am.

 

“I do really believe that I’m going to give it my all, which is what I always have done, and this place is going to get even more out of me. There’s something about this move which I’ve just felt good about.

 

“It felt like it was time for me to move on [from Arsenal]. It was sad but it’s exciting at the same time and I want to reignite my career and push Everton to win things as they have done before. I want to be part of something and I feel like this place will offer me that.”

Several months after his hit song went viral, controversial Ghanaian artiste Patapaa has finally released the official video to his “One Corner” song.

The song “One Corner”- coupled with the dance that accompanies it – became the sensation of the internet late last year in Ghana, Nigeria, and in some parts of the world.

The song and video features Ras Cann and Mr Loyalty. The music video which was directed by Agopa Films portrays the various dances that come with the song.

The song has come under intense criticism for its dance; while some have given the dance their “vote of confidence,” saying it’s morally right, others have described it as “evil.”

Seal Denies Sexual Battery Allegation As Neighbor Claims He Forcefully Groped Her

Featured Image

British singer-songwriter, Olusegun Adeola Samuel, better known as Seal, has adamantly denied allegations of sexual battery made against him by his former Malibu neighbour Tracey Birdsall.

The singer is under investigation for sexual battery after his neighbor accused him of forcefully kissing and groping her in 2016, TMZ quoted authorities as saying.

US Comedian Aziz Ansari Reacts To Sexual Assault Allegation

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department opened the investigation after the neighbor, Birdsall, who is an actress, claimed Seal forced himself on her in his kitchen in November 2016.

She alleged that Seal “lunged” at her in his home, attempted to kiss her, groped her breasts, and belittled her – insinuating that she wanted sexual attention because of the way she dressed. She “demanded he stop.”

She said he then convinced her to sit next to him on the couch, at which point he begin to “make fun of what she was wearing” and started groping her again.

Birdsall said she left then and “did not have contact with Seal again,” adding that she decided to report the incident to the police after hearing about Seal encouraging women to come forward with stories of sexual harassment.

However, in a statement, Seal said he “vehemently denies” the allegations and that he “intends to vigorously defend himself.”

“Seal vehemently denies the recent accusations made against him by a former neighbor for alleged misconduct of more than a year ago,” said a statement by the singer’s representative.

“He intends to vigorously defend himself against these false allegations.”

Ortom, El-Rufa’i And The Gang Playing To The Gallery

Ortom, El-Rufa’i and the Gang Playing To the Gallery, By Zainab Suleiman Okino

CLICK here to read more opinion articles

The herders-farmers’ clash in Benue State, which left 73 people, including children, dead penultimate week, will go down in history as one of the defining moments of this administration, not because of the number of casualties – germaine as this is – resulting from such perennial conflicts from Benue, Kaduna to Taraba and Adamawa but because of its politicisation and perhaps over dramatisation. The narrative shifted from the impacts of the tragedy on the affected communities to ethnic, religious, sectional and political coloration, and by the time the dust settles in no distant future, the tragedy would have claimed a lot of casualties, this time in government houses across the country. Some other people who have made political gains out of the killings to shore up their sagging popularity might also have their recompense in no time.

This piece was written by Zainab Suleiman Okino. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

In this category is the chief mourner himself, the governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, who before the anti-open grazing law, was in the bottom rung among non-performing governors – governors who are notorious for owing workers’ salaries, who allegedly diverted or mismanaged bailout funds and were at loggerheads with organised labour. Some people even insinuated that Ortom instituted the anti-open grazing law, as a populist stunt to divert attention from his poor performance and failure in governance. However, in the aftermath of the killings and his seeming antagonistic and non-reconciliatory stance, Ortom is gradually emerging as a symbol of the struggle to ‘free’ Benue people from the menacing marauders.

Thus in all his press interviews and television appearances, Ortom has become combative, ready to take on anyone and even his governor-colleagues, like Almakura over Benue State refugees in Nasarawa State and Simon Lalong of Plateau State, who claimed he warned Ortom not to enact the anti-open grazing law until Lalong apologised, and despite the fact that they belong to the same ruling party. He equally defied the president and his minister of Agriculture, Audu Ogbeh, also from Benue State, on their proposed colonies in place of ranching or open grazing. Today, I am sure, if there is an opinion poll to determine the popularity of governors in the North-Central, it will return a positive verdict on Governor Ortom. This is how our politicians sometimes profit from miseries and deaths, depending on where the pendulum swings.

Suddenly, politicians are playing to the gallery to either empathise with the Benue people or defend the APC administration at the federal level, depending on the side of the divide you are, or simply taking advantage of a bad situation. While Almakura and Lalong rushed to castigate Ortom, obviously to be seen to be in the good books of the Presidency, El-Rufai and his gang took a daring path of earnestly asking President Buhari at such an inauspicious time to run in 2019. During a visit to the president after last Friday Jumma’at prayer, seven APC governors led by Nasiru El-Rufa’i and others like Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State, Abubakar Bello of Niger State, Jibrilla Bindow of Adamawa State, Simon Lalong of Plateau State and Ibrahim Geidam of Yobe State, visited and endorsed the president to run in 2019 because “continuity and stability” are important. Coming on the heels of the Benue crisis, these governors simply capitalised on the pot-shots being thrown at the president over his cold handling of the security challenge to outsmart their colleagues. Rub my back and I do same to you, you may say.

Recall that most of these governors rode on Buhari’s popularity to become governors in 2015 and they probably think the same scenario can be re-enacted in 2019. Again, almost all of them, with the exception of Lalong, are in the midst of political battles for survival in their home states, and jumping the gun to endorse the president, they probabily felt, could save them from their impending Waterloo. Although time will tell, how are they sure the president will run and if he will scale through, if he decides to contest. I do not blame them either – a drowning man will clutch at any available straw; and for the embattled El-Rufa’i, Yahaya Bello and Ganduje, all of them serving their first terms and highly unpopular in their States, Buhari is that straw. Almakura has less trouble to cope with being in his last term, but he had to add his weighty voice because in the political chess game, being relevant at all times is the first rule of the game, and don’t forget that he might be eyeing the Senate too.

Other rabble-rousers playing to the gallery have also seized the day to make disparaging remarks or engage in odd things in a show of counter-force against Fulani herdsmen. In this group are Reno Omokri and Governor Fayose. Omokri, the former personal aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has put a curse on anyone asking Buhari to run, justifying the same with the killing of Christians. Describing the call for Buhari to run as “a betrayal of Christ”, Omokri said “all Christians who campaign for a second term for Buhari who’s done nothing concrete to stop the slaughter of Christian communities by his radical Muslim Fulani herdsmen brethren…will one day answer before a righteous God for their betrayal of Christ”. Omokri forgot to add that many Muslims in Taraba, Kogi, Kaduna and Nasarawa were at one time or the other casualties of senseless ethno-religious conflicts. In any case, does he not know that not all Fulanis are Muslims and the criminals have no respect for any religion? Omokri has taken the discourse in Benue beyond the madness it is to the realm of politics and religion because emotions are heightened when it comes to religion; it is an unfortunate and unhealthy dimension in a doctrinally divided country like Nigeria.

Governor Fayose’s parley with local hunters and their display of paraphernalia of prowess to counter what he called Fulani invasion is the most ridiculous of them all. Fayose, who was decked in camouflage to ‘reflect the mood of the nation’, said intelligence report available to him indicated that the ‘Bororo herdsmen’ had infiltrated the State. Talking tough and obviously in a war mood, he told the hunters to go home and defend their communities. For Fayose, everything is politics and politics is everything, and politicising the Benue killings in the way he did, though his usual style of playing to the gallery, is dangerous because we are not at war and hopefully will not fight another civil war.

The government must act swiftly to curb the herdsmen challenge and other security issues, but resorting to ethnic, religious and political sentiments out of a mishandled security issue, is nothing but mischief and opportunism, and for all you know, El-Rufa’i may be flying a kite to get the support of the president and governors in the first step towards his anointing, if Buhari does not run.

Peter Stoger says his decision to stay at Borussia Dortmund beyond this season, depends on if everything fits.

Stoger was appointed Dortmund coach, following the sacking of Bosz, but his contract expires in June 2018.

But the 51-year-old says he will consider staying at Dortmund, if it is the right fit.

“I’ll try to take my chance and then we’ll see what happens,” said Stoger in an interview with Sport Bild.

“If I am successful – but do not remain – I would probably have good opportunities afterwards. If everything fits, I’ll stay.

“I’m in a really happy phase here. Instead of doing nothing, I can coach Borussia Dortmund for six months.”

EFCC Denies Plot To Arrest Buhari’s Chief Of Staff Abba Kyari

Featured Image

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has issued a strong worded statement in which it denied any plot to arrest President Muhammdu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.

Last week, a prominent newspaper had reported that some detectives of the  security agents had stormed the house of the President’s Chief of Staff to get him arrested.

However, the EFCC, in a statement issued on Tuesday by its Acting Head of Media and Publicity, Samie Amaddin, said that it was not investigating Kyari; thus, denying any attempt to arrest the COS.

The statement read:  

Re: Untold Security, Intelligence Conundrum Of The Buhari Administration

“The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has been drawn to ongoing campaign by agents of misinformation and destabilization as championed by reports published in Sahara Reporters, an online news report, entitled: Untold Security, Intelligence Conundrum Of The Buhari Administration, authored by a certain Sani Tukur.”

“Ordinarily, we would have ignored the report and allow it to end up in the dustbin of history, for that is where it actually belongs, but for the fact that it is a follow–up to an earlier similar report also titled: EFCC’s attempt to arrest Abba Kyari sparks panic in Aso Rock, which we considered an attempt to silence the commission from carrying on with its constitutional duties of fighting corruption; we have considered it necessary to clarify issues in relation thereof.

“For the purpose of clarification, the modus operandi of the EFCC does not accommodate the alleged invasion as the modus operandi of the commission has always been to scrutinise petitions upon receipt, look at the petition on the face value, if it has merit and to carry out preliminary investigation to establish a prima facie case.

“Once all these requirements are satisfied, the suspect(s) is (are) invited for questioning and interrogation and his (their) statement(s) taken under caution.

“All these are prelude to arraignment in a competent court of jurisdiction and a suspect who is being invited for interrogation is formally sent an invitation letter to that effect.

“The so-called invasion is entirely alien to the established mode of operations of the EFCC, established over the last one-and-a-half decades in line with international best practices.

“Firstly, the commission will like to state that it is not investigating Mr. Kyari nor is it aware of any petition against him.

“Secondly, EFCC does not ‘invade’ the homes or offices of anyone the commission wishes to interact with in furtherance of the discharge of its mandate.

“The commission will properly notify and invite any person it wants to assist it in the resolution of any matter under examination.

“Thirdly, EFCC does not go to carry out invitations or arrests in the middle of the night. As a transparent organisation the commission carries out all its operations in broad daylight.

“These and other standard operational procedures are what guide the activities of the commission and which have earned it worldwide acclaim over the years.

“The commission was therefore taken aback when an online medium went public with the story of a purported “impending arrest”. EFCC does not do speculative investigations or arrests.

“Therefore, the action of those behind the false reports could best be described as shouting wolf where none exists.

“It must be underscored that EFCC makes it a point of duty and professional responsibility to act within the ambit of the law. The commission cannot be intimated and crying wolf by anyone cannot stop the commission from carrying out its constitutional responsibility.”

Brazil legend, Pele believes the Selecao has what it takes to be World Cup champions, putting faith in Tite.

Tite took over the Brazil squad in June 2016, and reshaped the team, as they romped to Russia.

“Those who are Brazilian and believe in Brazil always point to Brazil as the favourites,” said Pele at an event to launch the Rio state Championships.

“Tite is managing to make them a team again. At the last World Cup, we had the best players in the world but the team was disorganised.

“It seems that now we’ll have a team and a Selecao that gives us confidence.”

“Nigeria Must Not Fail” – ​ Newly Registered Party Leader, Bukunyi Olateru-Olagbegi, Shares Vision For The Modern Democratic Party​ (MDP)​

Bukunyi Olateru-Olagbegi has shared the vision of his newly registered party Modern Democratic Party (MDP).

"Nigeria Must Not Fail" – Newly Registered Party Leader, Bukunyi Olateru-Olagbegi, Shares Vision For MDP

Leader of the Modern Democratic Party (MDP), Prince Bukunyi Olateru-Olagbegi, takes a photo with INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmud Yakubu, flaunting the party’s certificate of registration

360nobs had last week reported that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has given 22 newly registered political parties certificates of operation.

MDP was among the newly registered political parties that were presented with the certificates of operation on January 10, 2018.

Speaking after the party was registered, the young Nigerian entrepreneur said the party is committed to harnessing the resources of the youths in the country.

He said: Over the last few days, I have received countless phone calls and messages filled with prayers, hope and support for which I am extremely grateful.

It is no secret that politics in Nigeria is unique and indeed very peculiar. It is one thing to define the battle; it is quite another knowing what it takes to win. In a world where ideals, personality, and good intentions are often seen as sufficient for political success, our political antecedents tell us otherwise. Wishful thinking is never, and never will be enough!

Modern Democratic Party (MDP) is committed to building a structure capable of winning elections across all political spheres and levels. ​MDP ​is not here just for the taking part. At its core, the ​p​arty has the desire and unwavering resolution to put the spotlight on the overlooked and downtrodden in our society – a society in critical need of deliverance from the bondage of bad leadership.

For far too long, genuinely progressive and forward-think​ers​ have been silenced. The youth have been told to “wait their turn”. We have been called naïve, unprepared, and unschooled in “the game of politics”. Well, Modern Democratic Party does not consider politics a “game”, as these same games have long toyed with the lives of Nigerians and hindered the social and economic potential of this nation.

“WE MUST CORRECT THE PRESENT FOR THE SAKE OF THE FUTURE”. This is our scared duty to our country!

In partnership with the brightest minds in Nigeria, MDP is focused on harnessing the mental and physical resources of this unique generation of youth brimming with fresh ideas and innovations which will finally put Nigeria in its rightful place on the world stage. But we need ALL youthful hands on deck!

To quote the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr; “…​ W​e cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back.”

I see a #risinggeneration of young Nigerians across the country who passionately believe in the unity, indivisibility, and oneness of Nigeria. We are not tied to the prejudices and biases of our parents when it comes to tribe, religion, creed or gender for we are united in our hunger for success. I challenge us to look beyond our quests for individual/personal success and work together to build an unstoppable force, driven by like-minded people for the success of our country. Complacency and “sitting on the fence” is out of the question. NIGERIA MUST NOT FAIL!

If you have not been moved or inspired enough to get involved since 1999 because you are tired of the same old thing and the same old people, then here is your opportunity. Wake up! The time is now. Get involved by joining us in MDP, get your PVC, and let your voice be heard. #partycp8

The future of this country is in your hands.

Lebanon Reverses Ban On Steven Spielberg’s Latest Film, “The Post”

Featured Image

Lebanon’s interior ministry will allow the release of Steven Spielberg’s latest film, “The Post”, overturning a ban by the General Security authority, a senior official said Wednesday.

The security body had on Monday announced it was banning the Hollywood thriller to comply with an Arab League boycott targeting supporters of Israel.

In a rare move, the interior ministry chose not to sign off on the decision by General Security, which in addition to controlling Lebanon’s borders, is responsible for censoring films, plays, and books.

“Interior Minister Nohad Mashnouk is going to allow the film to be shown,” a senior ministry official told AFP.

The company distributing the film in Lebanon confirmed that the film, starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks would be released in cinemas in Beirut and elsewhere on Thursday.

The acclaimed production tells the behind-the-scenes story of the 1971 publication by The Washington Post of the Pentagon Papers, which exposed the lies behind US involvement in the Vietnam War.

Lebanon is divided on the boycott-driven bans, with some welcoming them as a bulwark against the “cultural normalisation” of Israel’s occupation.

Banned films can often be found in bootleg movie shops across the country for as little as one dollar, and even blacklisted books can sometimes be found in regular bookstores.
