Weird Meets Consistent In Pretty Mike’s Ever Dramatic Fashion Choices!
How do you find your feet in fashion in the world where majority of the fashion crowd subdues to trend and a few of their fashion favourites?

The answer is quite simple – be you, be consistent and own it. Who adopts this mechanism in Lagos better than Pretty Mike? Pretty Mike, who is best known for his controversial behaviours and wierd fashion choices is a suitable frontliner for this write-up because the entrepreneur does have his style choices figured out and he sticks to it no matter what.

You might be thinking right now, Is this writer in a sane state? Yes, I am. Although you and I might not agree with his fashion choices, the man always shows up distinct. What is better than being just distinct? Pretty Mike is unapologetic and regal about it.

Being true to your fashion choices doesn’t necessarily entail showing up to another person’s wedding in the company of masked girls with dog leash but it tells a story about making a choice, being true to it and facing the consequences.

Umbrellas, capes, robes and socks, angel wings amongst other of Pretty Mike’s very dramatic accessories are very unconventional for you and me but they sure work for him and suit him just right.

His latest wedding stunt was showing up with a whole Wakandan army. His ensemble to the wedding alone would have been tagged as “Pretty Mike just being extra” but a whole army just knocked the extraness out of the park.

@prettymikeoflagos

Pretty Mike’s latest stunt does nothing but validate the whole essence of this article. Strategy, planning and effort that would have gone into making that grand entrance would have been zeroed out for a normal fashion enthusiast but evidently Pretty Mike is far from from normal.

@prettymikeoflagos

This advice might not be all the way literal but in order order to get on the right track with fashion, we need to be more like Pretty Mike. Don’t you think Lagos would be a far more interesting place if the Pretty Mike’s extraness was contagious? That is sure one hell of a city that I would like to see!

Barcelona Midfielder Paulinho Rejoins Former Chinese Club Guangzhou Evergrande

Featured Image
Chinese Super League club Guangzhou Evergrande have announced they have re-signed the club’s former midfielder Paulinho from Barcelona

Paulinho has returned to China, agreeing a move from Barcelona to Guangzhou Evergrande after less than a year in LaLiga.

Paulinho was a surprise signing for Barcelona last August but helped Ernesto Valverde’s men to win a domestic double of LaLiga and Copa del Rey titles, hitting nine league goals in 21 starts.

After starting all five games for his country at the World Cup, Paulinho has headed back to China with Guangzhou announcing the deal on their official website.

Paulinho won a brace of CSL crowns in his first spell with Guangzhou after joining the club from Premier League side Tottenham, where he failed to make an impact, in 2015.

Paulinho hit 24 goals in 88 games for Guangzhou in his previous spell.

<

p style=”margin:0px0px1.3125rem;padding:0px”>
Fabio Cannovaro is the manager at Evergrande and they are currently fifth in the CSL table after 11 games, while matches have been paused for the duration of the World Cup.

Paulinho should be back in time for his side’s fixture against Guizhou Zhicheng on July 18.

Boyfriend In Trouble As Dead Body Of Ex-Ondo Deputy Gov’s Daughter Is Found At His Place

Miss Adenike Khadijat Oluboyo, daughter of the immediate past Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Alhaji Lasisi Olugbenga Oluboyo, has been found dead, while her boyfriend has been implicated after her decomposing body was allegedly found at his place during the weekend.

The Punch reports that Oluboyo, who was a final year student of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, was found dead in her boyfriend’s house, Adeyemi Alao, popularly known as Q.S.

Ex-Ondo deputy governor’s daughter found dead in boyfriend’s house

Mr Femi Joseph, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Ondo command who confirmed the story to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), described the incident as saddening and very unfortunate.

 “It is not a rumour but it is a fact that the young lady was found dead this morning and it is saddening and very unfortunate.

“We are on it and trying to get some facts but the Commissioner of Police will brief the press about the details in another 48 hours,” Joseph said.

According to Sahara Reporters, Miss Oluboyo, popularly known as ‘Princess Nikky’, was found dead with her body already decomposing at the weekend, few days after she was declared missing.

But she was last seen in the company of her boyfriend.

It quoted a source as saying that the former Deputy Governor’s daughter had left the campus and travelled to Akure for a personal engagement until she was found dead.

“She told some of us who are very close to her in the school that she was traveling to Akure to collect some documents concerning her trip,” the source said.

“The next day, we could not immediately reach out to her but someone said she called to inform that she might probably sleep over at her boyfriend’s place.”

“We began to worry and called her boyfriend but that one said he did not see her, then we called her parents to tell them we could not find their daughter who left school for Akure.”

“Immediately, the parents started searching everywhere and she was declared missing until yesterday (Saturday) that we heard she had been found dead.”

“Now, everyone especially her family, is bereaved about the sorrowful incident because this is gruesome death.”

The source also added that Khadijat’s boyfriend identified as Alao Adeyemi had been fingered in her gruesome death.

Africa Is Leaving Nigeria Behind

Africa Is Leaving Nigeria Behind by Simon Kolawole

CLICK here to read more opinion articles

You should have seen me shaking my head in self-pity, as if somebody had just mercilessly slapped me. I had just landed at the “little” Kotoka International Airport, Accra, Ghana, and needed to use the rest room. What I saw startled me. There were about a dozen toilet cubicles. All the doors were standing tall — none was hanging loose. I also saw a row of urinals in sparkling conditions. The rest room was so clean, so odour-free you could comfortably have your lunch in there without endangering your health. Water flowed freely. There was tissue paper in abundance. The lights were bright. Not a single bulb was bad. I used the toilet and walked away impressed — and depressed.

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

I returned to Lagos the day after and visited the toilets at the “massive” Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA). The first cubicle I opened nearly made me throw up. I covered my nose and retreated. I finally found one that was manageable; the door latch was gone, but since it was the minor business I wanted to do, I soldiered on. To my pleasant surprise, the toilet flushed, and I was grateful. Meanwhile, just in front of the toilets were five cleaners talking on top of their voices about the Belgium-Japan match at the World Cup in Russia. After using the toilet, I walked away depressed. We spend billions maintaining this airport every year.

This experience set me thinking again. I started my opinion-writing career by comparing Nigeria with Europe. I then began consoling myself by saying since the Europeans started their development trajectory centuries ahead of us, comparison was improper. It is like comparing the speed of a five-year-old with that of a teenager. I enjoyed the consolation while it lasted. I decided to benchmark us against Asia, with focus on Dubai, Singapore and South Korea. At least, we had similar stories as at 1960 when we began life as an independent country. Comparison with Asia also left me distressed. Their pace of development is such that many Asian countries can now compete with Europe.

I decided to lower the bar further by saying that “after all, we are better than most sub-Saharan African countries”. It got that pathetic. But I have finally decided to stop living in denial. The rest of Africa is fast leaving Nigeria behind. Let me complete my airport stories before I delve into the evidence. It is only in Nigeria that you have two officials checking your passport — first by the DSS and then immigration. I have travelled to quite a number of countries. Nigeria is just incredible. Only one official checks your passport in Accra, or any other country for that matter. What exactly is the reason for this sickening anomaly in Nigeria? Is this a cherished relic from the military regimes?

I acknowledge that some things changed after Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, as acting president, paid an unscheduled visit to the MMIA. We no longer unzip our bags for searches by officials of DSS, NDLEA and Customs at check-in counters. This primitive practice has stopped. Praise the Lord. However, I still see leaking roofs at the airport, with buckets placed at strategic points to harvest rain water. I will avoid talking about the air conditioning system which works only when it pleases. This is the airport for which passengers pay $60 as service charge to FAAN, the landlords, anytime they buy tickets. This sorry story is similar at other “international” airports. And Nigeria is the Giant of Africa.

I have written only about the Accra airport in comparison to our MMIA so as to contain my frustration. I will intentionally ignore the newly opened Blaise Diagne International Airport, Senegal, the adorable Addis Ababa Bole International Airport, Ethiopia, and the elegant Félix-Houphouët-Boigny International Airport, Côte d’Ivoire. I do not want to inflict myself with hypertension. But the point has to be made that although we like to talk big and act big and claim to have a massive population and humongous petrodollars, we are a disgrace to Africa. We cannot even build modern cubicles for immigration and customs checks!

The efficiency with which airports are run in these other African countries is not even the main reason for this article. While the airports are important as they are central to travel, tourism and trade — in addition to marketing the image of Nigeria — I am more worried about critical things that are happening in other African countries for which Nigeria is shamelessly lagging behind. Ethiopia has launched a metro rail line in Addis Ababa. The project was delivered within six years (despite delays) for less than $500 million. It is the first light rail project in sub-Saharan Africa. It handles 15,000 passengers per hour across 39 stations in the capital city. And Nigeria is the Giant of Africa.

God only knows the billions of dollars we have pumped into railways in the last 20 years with haphazard results, mostly buying toothpick for the price of toothpaste — to quote the immortal Dr Chuba Okadigbo. Only last year, Kenya inaugurated its standard gauge railway project covering about 470 kilometres. It took just three-and-a-half years to build. A presidential term is four years. The terminals look like international airports. Travel time between Nairobi and Mombasa has now been reduced from 15 hours by bus to only four hours and 30 minutes by rail. Imagine being able to travel from Abuja to Lagos by rail within five hours. And Nigeria is the Giant of Africa.

The amazing thing about such audacious and well-executed infrastructural projects is not just that they ease life and business — they also create jobs during and after construction. The direct and indirect benefits are limitless. And, ironically, we do not even have to spend one kobo of our money if we get the framework right. Many African countries are beginning to understand how it works. Asky Airlines has made Lomé-Tokoin International Airport, Togo, its West Africa hub. More than 90% of the passengers are just passing through the airport for onward connection not just to West African countries but also to places such as India, US and Brazil. And Nigeria is the Giant of Africa.

In 2005, Nigeria launched the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) with a promise of “universal coverage” by 2015. That means all Nigerians, with emphasis on the poor, will be enrolled on the scheme so that they do not have to pay cash for medical treatment. Rwanda came to study our NHIS some years later. Today, Rwanda has achieved nearly 100% coverage and statistics on maternal and infant health are among the best in the world. Nigeria? We are stuck at 3% — and we got that far because of the compulsory enrolment of civil servants. NHIS is now more about billions of naira to be manipulated by government officials and HMOs. And Nigeria is the Giant of Africa.

Maybe I should stop talking infrastructure and focus on governance. The prime minister of Ethiopia, Abiy Ahmed, during the week sacked five senior prisons bosses accused of human rights violations and other misconduct. The government said the needs of prisoners had not been adequately met and their human rights had not been respected. In Nigeria, thousands of people are languishing in police cells all over the country, routinely subjected to torture. We either deny or ignore it. Tens of thousands are in prison awaiting trial for years under the most inhuman conditions. They are transforming to living skeletons. No one ever gets punished. And Nigeria is the Giant of Africa.

Lest I forget, President Peter Mutharika of Malawi is currently being investigated by the country’s anti-graft body over allegations that he received kickback from a $3.9 million contract. The entire cost of the contract is not even up to the pocket money (also known as “security vote”) of many Nigerian governors. In Nigeria, we can’t probe a former president much less a sitting one. In Kenya, Busia county governor Sospeter Ojaamong has been charged to court for awarding a contract that was not included in the budget. Can you imagine that? Who cares about what is in the budget in Nigeria? Just take the money and spend like crazy. We are the Giant of Africa.

Still in Kenya, the public prosecutor last week ordered the arrest of two farm managers and government officials over a dam that collapsed and killed more than 47 persons two months ago. The nine government officials would be prosecuted for manslaughter and neglect of duty. Who holds anybody responsible for anything in Nigeria? In 2014, 16 young Nigerians died during a badly organised recruitment by the Nigeria Immigration Service. The minister of interior, Abba Moro, described them as “unruly”. Why not? He knew he would not have to resign, neither would anybody hold him responsible for the deaths. And Nigeria is the Giant of Africa.

In the year 2002, poorly stored bombs went off at the Ikeja Cantonment, spreading panic all over Lagos. Over 1,000 lay dead at the end of the unprecedented mishap. President Olusegun Obasanjo visited the scene a few days later and famously asked an agitated protester to “shut up”, boasting that he was not even supposed to be in Lagos in any case. The world leader that he was, he was scheduled to be outside the country looking for the legendary foreign investors. Ain’t we lucky he came down to earth to visit Lagos over the tragedy? In the end, nobody resigned and nobody was punished over the catastrophe. That is the way we roll.

President Muhammadu Buhari recently said he ordered the inspector-general of police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, to relocate to Benue state following the internecine killings in January. The president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and commander-in-chief of the armed forces later said he did not know that the IG was not in Benue as ordered by him. In other news, Idris was photographed cutting a giant birthday cake and having fun elsewhere while Benue was burning. He would not resign and nobody would sack him. That is our culture. That is the way we do it here. We are the Giant of Africa. We have moved from being a role model in 1960 to becoming a laughing stock. What hit us?

AND FOUR OTHER THINGS…

‘REFORMED’ APC

Since last year, we have been hearing that some politicians will defect from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to form a formidable opposition to President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election bid in 2019. It has taken forever but it seems it will still happen with the launch of “reformed APC” on Wednesday. I don’t know how far the R-APC can go in the game, but suddenly there is a growing belief that Buhari will have to sweat for re-election. I won’t be surprised if Buhari’s camp dismisses R-APC with a wave of the hand, but that would be a mistake. I must at this stage confess that things are getting more intriguing than I expected. Interesting.

TEACHERS AND THIEVES

Think you have seen it all? Let me give you one more. The federal government launched the school feeding programme to improve enrolment across the country. From several accounts, the programme is not doing badly. But according to Connecting Gender for Development (COGEN), a non-governmental organisation, some teachers in Kaduna state are eating part of the ration meant for pupils. As a result, the ration does not usually go round. What a country. We steal from public treasury, we steal from the living, we steal from the dead, we steal from the elderly and now we are stealing from the children. Is there any country like Nigeria on Planet Earth? Mindboggling.

UNITY IN DIVERSITY

I was a guest of the Unity Schools Old Students Association (USOSA) in Port Harcourt, Rivers state, last weekend where Senator Ahmed Makarfi gave a keynote on “Peace and Unity: The Role of Unity Schools”. I was in the panel of discussants. One thing that I walked away with is the value of promoting national integration through the diversity that these schools offer. My wife attended a Unity School up north and has kept most of her diverse relationships till today. It is a sad commentary that Unity Schools are increasingly limiting admissions to locals, thereby defeating the original objective of promoting national integration. Counterproductive.

AND FINALLY…

This is serious. A native doctor has been shot dead — accidentally, you would add — after his customer tested “bullet-proof” charm on him. Mr. Chinaka Adoezuwe, 26, had asked his customer to test the efficacy of the charm by using himself as the guinea pig. He must have been so sure of his supernatural powers. Unfortunately, his charms failed him. I know he is dead, but if he could reverse the hand of time, he should test the bullet-proof on a goat next time. Fela once did it. When the native doctor asked to test the charms, Fela suggested using a goat. You guessed right: the goat died. You win either way: you can, after all, make goat meat pepper soup if it fails. Wisdom.

L.A.X Clears The Air On Relationship With Victoria Kimani

Featured Image

Nigerian singer L.A.X has reacted to the allegations leveled against him by Kenyan Singer, Victoria Kimani.

Somedays ago, L.A.X referred to the beautiful Kenyan Singer as the love of his life during an Interview with Pulse NG but Kimani responded by accusing the Nigerian singer of being deceitful and corrupt.

However, in a chat with Sunday Scoop, LAX said his statement was misconceived and he never said that Kimani was his girlfriend.

In his words:

“It was a misconception. I granted an interview and I said she (Kimani) was my ‘Woman Crush Everyday’. I didn’t say she was my girlfriend. She’s my friend and we are cool; I even have a song with her on my forthcoming album. However, with what happened, I think I need to change my crush. I am actually not in a relationship at the moment. The major quality I look out for in a woman is someone who is understanding.”

While speaking on his recent collaboration with Wizkid on the song “Nobody”, L.A.X said;

“It has been doing really well. As a matter of fact, it is number eight on the charts right now. I’m grateful to Wizkid for ‘jumping’ on the track with me; it was really great and people are loving it. All the songs Wizkid and I have worked on together have turned out to be great hits; that shows that we have good chemistry between us.”

The Gbefun crooner also spoke on his forthcoming album. According to him, the album is near completion and will be out soon.

I have been recording for a while and the album will be released before the end of the year. However, I will be putting out a single next week. Some of the artistes I worked with on the album are Davido, Wizkid and Ycee,” he said.

Reacting to those who still see him as an up-and-coming singer, Damilola said;

“That is their opinion. My true fans and objective know my worth in the industry.”

NYSC Earmarks N83 Billion For 350,000 Corps Members In 2018

There are strong indications that the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has earmarked a total amount of N83,160,000,000 for the allowances of corps members in 2018.

Last year, the NYSC mobilised 297,293 corps members nationwide and paid them N67, 383,359,602 as allowances.

The corps members are spread across two batches and two streams in 2017, with each stream having about 74,000 corps members.

With the new increment in the number of corps members this year, the NYSC, according to its 2018 budget, has earmarked N83,160,000,000 for their allowances.

Aside the N3,200 paid to each corps member during the three-week orientation in camps, the NYSC also pays N19, 800 as monthly allowance to the each of them.

It was gathered that in 2016, the agency only mobilized 260,000 corps members due to recession.

But a look into the NYSC 2017 budget showed that apart from allowances, the NYSC spent N2,491,681,500 for kitting of the 297,293 corps members and N3,272,103,431 for meals for 21 days.

Meanwhile, sources in the NYSC said for dead corps members, the premiums were paid to their families after a few months, but the “amounts paid are strictly confidential and discretionary.”

A source further told the news outlet on Sunday, July 8, that the premiums across boards were recently reviewed in line with the present socio-economic realities.

He said, “We have premium schemes for corps members. Recently, the premiums were reviewed but I don’t know the specific amount; it is secretive. Every corps member is covered, including the NYSC workers.”

An upcoming artiste, Analike Okezie, better known by the stage name Yoko B, has claimed that the prominent singer, real name Innocent Ujah Idibia, stole the concept of the song he released last month from him.

In a chat with The Punch, which was published on Sunday, Yoko B said:

“Right now, I am fed up with some of the top artistes in this country. Once they are up there, they can never help you grow. They prefer to rip you off and frustrate your hustle. The new song, Amaka, by 2baba featuring Peruzzi is my concept.”

“The song was produced by Richie, who also did the chorus of the song. Shortly after producing my song, Richie was employed by Larry Gaga and he left FESTAC Town for Lekki where he worked with 2baba.”

“My songs were still on his computer at that point. I was shocked when I discovered that they had ‘stolen’ the title, concept and message of my song. I released my version about five months ago and I have been trying to promote it with the little resources I have. I was already negotiating with Avalon Okpe to direct the video when 2baba released his version. I feel bad that they cheated me because I am an up-and-coming artiste. I want the world to know what has been done to me.”

On whether he had made his grievances known to Richie personally, Yoko B said:

“Yes, I complained to him but he didn’t say anything reasonable. He said anybody can come up with the title, Amaka. But I wonder why the concept and instrumental of the songs are so similar if something isn’t fishy.”

“I am sure that somehow, 2baba must have heard the song. To cover their tracks, 2baba’s version was produced by another producer, Sperochbeatz, but they all work in the same studio.”
