#NigeriaDecides: Political campaigns everywhere

Featured Image

It’s Nigeria’s general election season and there are huge billboards and posters advertising candidates everywhere you turn.

The presidential and national assembly elections hold on Febuary 14 while the votes for governors and state assemblies will be held two weeks later on February 28.

Nigeria is at another important moment in its history. Who will win this one?

I have covered elections in Ghana and Togo, but none of them have been this tense even before the votes are cast.

In 2008 when Ghana went to the polls, I remember the deadlock between both candidates pushed the battle to the small town on Tain. Even then, Ghana was peaceful.

While in Lome in 2010, even as the opposition failed to defeat the long-term family heir Gnassingbe Eyadema, there was not much disturbance of the peace.

In Nigeria, the opposition All Progressives Congressive hopes to use its growing popularity to unseat the government of the Peoples Democratic Party.

Africa’s most populous country has not seen such a keen contest since the return to civilian rule in 1999. Many say it is now or never for the coalition of opposition parties to defeat the ruling party.

Nigeria is set on edge, February’s polls will either make or mar her.

What the heck happened?!?!?!!

Featured Image
I know a lot of you that are familiar with the blog are thinking what the heck happened to all the post?!?!?!?!

Well to make a long story short. I logged on one evening to create a post and all of my pictures since 2011 just vanished!!!

I contacted Google (whom I have not heard from as of yet) I also did some research to see if this had happened to anyone else. 
So what I found out was that since Google now owned Blogger, Picasa, and started Google Plus all the photos went to Picasa to be stored. When I brought my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 I deleted that Picasa album, now causing me to loose out on all my blog post pictures forever. 
So I didn’t want to just have Incomplete post, I deleted everything and decided a fresh start would be nice!

Always find a way to turn a negative into a positive!!

Afropolitan Vibes: Victor Olaiya and Keziah Jones in performance

Featured Image
Victor Olaiya

It was a fitting way to end 2014 as highlife music legend Victor Olaiya rode the stage at the December 19 Afropolitan Vibes, which continues to grow into a veritable live music hangout for many young Lagosians.

The success of the AV has made it an event to look forward to every month due to its eclectic atmosphere.

And since the move to the main stage of the Freedom Park, the crowd has seemed to increase and become more diverse than when the show was at the smaller theatre stage.

Blufunk singer and guitarist Keziah Jones also performed on the night. Although I interviewed him sometime in 2011, it was my first time to see him play live.

Though he only did about three songs, his dexterity on the guitar was not lost on crowd as the women called out for him to take off his shirt like he has done in the past mainly with European audiences.

Perhaps not wanting to divert the attention of the crowd from the music or due to the different sensibilities of the Lagos audience, KJ decided to keep the shirt on. I’m glad he did.

Keziah Jones

January’s Afropolitan Vibes will take place on January 30 with expected performances from 84-year-old highlife legend Chris Ajilo, neo-soul singer Bez, Afro hiphop artist Ajebutter22 and R&B sing Ruby Gyang hosted by the 13-piece Bantu collective.

Featured Image

Instagram

Instagram announced it reached a milestone of 300 million users today via Instagram, it has just clocked 300million followers as against twitter’s 284 million.

Instagram was bought by Facebook in 2012 when many didn’t see its potential. It’s most popular picture is Kim and Kanye’s wedding photo. CEO Kevin Systrom said. Despite the huge numbers, the app is majorly cracking down on spam accounts. . .

The caption of the above Insta reads: As Instagram gets bigger, we’re focused on helping you discover more. Today, we’re excited to say that verified badges for celebrities and brands will be rolling out in the coming days, making it easier for you to find and connect with authentic accounts. . . Finally, we’re committed to keeping Instagram free from fake and spammy accounts. We’ve been deactivating these accounts on an ongoing basis—and now we will be deleting these accounts forever. As a result, some of you will see a change in your follower count, though most of you won’t see any impact. . . If you’re one of those who will see a correction, you will see a notification in the app directing you to additional information. Most likely, this purge will affect major brands, celebrities, and Internet personalities only.

Details .. Davido and Diamond at War…

Featured Image

Davido-and-Diamond

We can’t tell you what will happen tomorrow but we can tell you that Davido and Tanzanian music sensation Diamond Platnumz are definitely not on good terms anymore.

Davido had shot Diamond to continental fame when he jumped on the remix of his break out single, Number One which won Diamond multiple awards in his country and Africa but it looks as if the battle line has been drawn.

Diamond beat Davido to multiple awards at the just concluded Channel O awards in South Africa and from our angle it seems Davido is definitely not cool with it. Davido and his brother Chairman HKN called out Channel O for making them travel all the way down to South Africa to give them nada.

We didn’t see the shots coming. But here is the tea…

Yesterday Tanzanian rep at the just concluded Big Brother Africa, Idris won the Big Brother Africa ahead of Nigeria’s Tayo, which let to Davido tweeting “N They cheat again” shortly after the award. This was also a sub to Diamond who also hails from Tanzania. That same yesterday, Diamond won the African Artiste of the year at The Future Awards… Which led to him tweeting “Thanks God, we have Cheated another one on The Future Awards Africa in Lagos Nigeria… #SameDay #SameNight Thank you Allah!” you saw the bold?

A fan then told Diamond that Davido was referring to BBA with his cheat claim which Davido responded to with “God Bless You.”

Davido then went on to say “An ungrateful stone will eventually fall… I will always be grateful to pple that have helped me climb this tall ladder of success” which appears to be another shot at the 25 year old artiste.

Diamond recently featured on Waje’s single, Coco Baby.
