There are reports that Manchester United players Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial are not just opened to the idea but excited by the prospect of Zinedine Zidane succeeding Jose Mourinho as manager of the Red Devils.

While Daily Mail is reporting that the French legend has told friends that he expects to be offered the Manchester United job if Mourinho is sacked, Daily Telegraph gathers that the prospect of Zidane taking over ‘appeals’ to the duo of Pogba and Martial.

Trouble For Mourinho As Zidane Eyes Manchester United Job

Mourinho is facing the biggest test of his time in charge at United after a turbulent summer that has left him at odds with Old Trafford chief Ed Woodward and record signing Paul Pogba.

Pogba and Mourinho have had a number of run-ins, arguing over his performances and best position, while the midfielder has even sought a transfer away such is the toxicity of their relationship.

Martial, similarly, came close to leaving Old Trafford over the summer after growing frustrated with his lack of game time since Alexis Sanchez’s arrival in January, while he was also criticised by his manager for not returning to the club’s tour of the United States after the birth of his son.

The 55-year-old now faces a crucial game at home to Tottenham on Monday night as he tries to prevent the current problems at United escalating into a full-blown crisis.

MI Abaga Reacts To Wizkid, Burna Boy’s Endorsement Of Nasty C As Africa’s Biggest Rapper

Nigerian rapper and Chocolate City boss, Jude Abaga popularly known as M.I Abaga, has reacted to Wizkid and Burna Boy’s endorsement of a South African artiste, Nasty C, as the biggest rapper in Africa; saying he has no issue with it.

5 Things We Learned As MI Abaga Releases Tracklist For Yung Denzel Album

The rapper, who just released his fourth studio album, Yung Denzel: A Story on Self Worth, told The Punch that:

“Nasty C is taking rap music to another level right now; he is doing a great job. I cannot count how many times Wizkid has called me the biggest rapper in Africa. It is unwise to want to be called the best all the time. I think my focus now is always to do my best, not to be the best. I am a big fan of Nasty C and I appreciate everything he does.

“Since I called out Nigerian rappers to fix up their lives, I have seen changes. I believe that we have great and talented rappers in Nigeria; I was just trying to wake them up from their slumber.”

On his new 10-track album, he said.

“This album is more personal to me and deeper than my previous albums. I like you to listen to it and tell me what you feel about it. I talked about mental health, low self-esteem, depression and other issues people battle with every day. I like all the songs; I don’t have a favourite track.”

The album, released midnight on Friday is M.I’s second album in 2018; the first, “Rendezvous” was released in February.

Kelly Hansome Challenges Don Jazzy To Deny Locking Him Up In Prison

Kelly Hansome Dares Don Jazzy To Deny Putting Him Behind Bars

Nigerian singer, Kelechi Orji, aka Kelly Hansome, who recently accused Don Jazzy of locking him up in a special anti-robbery cell for doing a cover of a song, has dared the Mavin records boss to speak out if he was lying.

While celebrating a soldier friend’s birthday, the versatile singer had shared a story on Instagram on how Don Jazzy got him arrested on two occasions.

Kelly Hansome Reveals How “Don Jazzy Got Him Arrested” – For Alleged Laptop Theft

Confirming this in a chat with The Punch, the ‘Maga Don Pay crooner stated that he didn’t have the intention to reveal the information but all he said was true.

He said, “I don’t care about meeting him or settling things. He is a producer, I am a producer too. If he buys seven houses and I buy one, it is the same bed we will sleep on. I don’t need to have many houses to be satisfied as a human being. I wish he would accept that he went too far by jailing me but he will not do that because of pride. You can only deceive people for a while, not forever. He would have said something if I was lying, but he didn’t admit or say a word because it was true. I am sure if he comes out to deny it, Charly Boy will speak.”

“It was when Don Jazzy arrested me that I met the soldier I mentioned in my post. I wanted to wish him a happy birthday and I remembered the event. I guess people were surprised because they felt Don Jazzy could not do such. Why would you lock up your brother for doing a cover of a song. The track was titled, I’m Feeling Good, by 2baba featuring D’banj, while Don Jazzy produced it. If he is proud of what he did, he should respond.”

“I signed an undertaken and they published it online with my signature. They claimed I was bailed with N500, 000 but that’s untrue. I didn’t put out the song; it was leaked online. They even told the police to put a laptop on my hands so that people would think I was a yahoo boy (Internet fraudster).”

Kelly also insisted that he had never been close to Don Jazzy and knew only little about him.

“I have not done anything with him before but he attended my birthday party which was organised by Baba Keke in Lagos and he showed me love. But locking me in a special anti-robbery cell showed he didn’t care about me,” he maintained.

DAVIDO: The Luxury Lifestyle Of A Private Jet Owner

DAVIDO: The Luxury Lifestyle Of A Private Jet Owner By Benjamin Njoku

CLICK here to read more opinion articles

When David Adedeji Adeleke, popularly called Davido released his first hit single, “Back When”in 2011, no one was surprised that he would some day end up becoming one of the biggest music stars around. Today, the musical superstar has not only earned a reputation for having the biggest ‘ego’ in the continent and beyond, but also, for being the most controversial, yet unstoppable singer from this part of the world. Davido has released back to back hits that confirmed he’s ‘unstoppable.’ He’s also a show stopper any day, and many people see him as the true future of hip pop music in Africa.

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

Like it or leave it, the ‘Áye’ singer has proved beyond every reasonable doubt that he understands the secrets of making good music, and he’s not leaving anything to chance. Rewind back to when he released his debut song,’Back When’, Davido has not slowed down in his quest to conquer the world with his music just as he has not stayed away from controversy.

To him, controversy, which is associated with fame has become his second nature and the sensational singer is enjoying every bit of it while it lasts. At best, he has developed thick skin as far as scandals are concerned. From 2012, when a picture of the pop star and a hooker in bed went viral on social media, David has forever been drawn into controversy.

When his fans thought that the mess would never be repeated, another photo surfaced online with yet another hooker. It has been controversy till date. Indeed, apart from what happened in 2016, after the sensational singer got into a nasty public fight with his baby mama, Sophia over the custody of their daughter, one controversy that Davido would not forget in a hurry was being linked to the death of his friend, Tagbo Umieke on October 3, 2017, an accusation that forced the singer to release the CCTV recording that exonerated him from the crime.

He also lost other two of his friends, Olugbemiga ‘DJ Olu’ Abiodun and Chime Amaechi to the cold hands of death in one week. Davido was also involved in other controversies that almost ruined his musical career but each time, he managed to wriggle himself out of such controversies. Recall the fight one of his aides had with security personnel at the Murtala Mohummed International Airport, Ikeja, and the bawl the singer had with South African actress, Boity, who reportedly accused the pop star of making sexual advances at her after his 30 Billion concert in Zimbabwe.

But beyond his controversies, Davido remains one Nigerian singer you cannot ignore. He has continued to up his game, with every hit single he released. After releasing “Back When” which became an instant hit, Davido followed it up with another hit single, “Dami Duro”in 2011. Since then, it has been back to back hits, as if he’s yet to give his best. When his fans thought ‘Aye’ would be his best song, the very talented singer returned with ‘Skelewu’, which ruled the airwaves across the continent, followed by ‘Overseas’and ‘Globe.’ But his ’30 Billion’ which dominated the Nigerian music space throughout the greater part of last year, remains one of Davido’s greatest hits. The 30 Billion tour of America and Europe also was an indication of how big Davido has become on the world stage.

Besides, he also toured Africa with his ’30 Billion hit song’, performing to the cheering crowds at Kigali, Rwanda, Kinshasa, Brazzaville, Niamey and Dakar respectively. The gains of that musical tour are better imagined than said-increased popularity and commercial gains.

However, before dropping ’30 Billion’, Davido also released two other hit singles, “If” and Fall” that have gone diamond and platinum respectively at a time. His latest hit song, ‘Assurance’ which is currently being played at every nook and cranny of the society, will end up becoming the biggest song in Nigeria. The song, an ode to his girlfriend, Chioma Rowland who turned 25 recently, has become an anthem.

Controversial private jet

Davido’s announcement  in May, this year that he was expecting the arrival of his new private jet generated a lot of heat on social media with tongues wagging that the ‘IF’crooner’s net worth wouldn’t buy him a private jet yet. Some also thought it was another gimmick like that of Psquare when it was rumoured that the  singing twins bought a private jet. But the handsome singer shut their mouths after the jet landed in Lagos, amid excitement. Davido’s reply to his critics on Instagram definitely put to rest doubts of his ownership of the aircraft. He wrote, “Lmao, all of you, what is mine is Imade’s and what is my father is mine.”

That triggered another controversy. Who owns the jet, himself or his father? Furthermore, it’s not about who owes the jet, but the fact that the pop star who has been flying around the world renting jets is now about living the luxury life as the first Nigerian entertainer to owns the luxury ‘ride.’He has worked so hard to attain the heights he has today. And if acquiring a private jet would give him the comfort he desires in life, why not? After all, whatever belongs to his father, belongs to him. While tongues are still wagging, it’s being speculated that the jet would not only be serving the singer and his crew but also, it would be bringing returns to him, having once hinted that he would be going into the aviation business.

Davido and His women

Like all music stars, Davido has soft spot for women. Having been linked to many of them in the past, his relationship with his current girlfriend, Chioma appears to be more real thank fake.The Omo Baba Olowo’s (OBO) generosity to his new girlfriend, reached its peak when he presented her with a N45 million Porsche on her birthday. The “IF” crooner sprang a surprise at Chioma’s birthday by presenting her with the luxury ride. Besides, the lovebirds are everywhere building nestle. Last week, they were together in Port-Harcourt, Owerri and Cotonu. And Davido, out of excitement now addresses Chioma as ‘wifey.’ In his Instagram post, the singer wrote, “ davidoofficialTouch down wifey home town !! Club go turn traditional wedding this nite.” He also wrote in another post, “First trip with my woman !! Cotonu .We on the way!! AIR OBO Touch down.”

All said and done, the rave of the moment has carved out a niche for himself in all ramifications. Being born into a wealthy family has not distracted him from pursuing his musical career, and ranking among the best of the best in Africa. He has stayed true to his dream, and it’s not surprising that every emerging Nigerian singer looks up to him as a source of inspiration. And Davido has continued to soar even in the face of scandals and setbacks. He’s indeed a ‘lone star in the forest.’
