Nigerians React As Toke Makinwa Says “Guys Who Whatsapp Call Girls Are Lazy” (Watch Video)

Featured Image

Nigerian radio personality, television host, vlogger and author, Toke Makinwa, has stirred the hornet’s nest on social media in the latest edition of TokeMoments, titled ‘Weird Much’.

Despite the backlashes and reactions that trailed the previous edition, when she talked about hairnets, farting, morning kisses and more, the media personality got several Nigerians cheesed off after she said ”guys who whatsapp call their girls are lazy”, in her recent publication.

According to her, “Girls like being called, but not WhatsApp call, I feel some type of way when a guy is not using his credit to call me”.

The OAP, who is also known for co-hosting The Morning Drive on Rhythm 93.7 FM, also had something to say to guys who constantly change their display pictures and guys who always tweet and troll at celebrities.

Watch the video below:

While a segment of Twitter netizens (girls especially) completely agreed with her, others showed their disapproval.

HBO Hackers Leak Game Of Thrones Stars’ Phone Numbers, Demand Ransom

Featured Image

Hackers of US entertainment company HBO – who have released personal phone numbers of Game of Thrones actors, emails and scripts, in the latest dump of data stolen from the company – are demanding a multimillion-dollar ransom to prevent the release of whole TV shows and further emails.

In a new dump, they also published a script for the as yet unbroadcast fifth episode of the current series while company documents and video episodes of other HBO shows were also shared.

HBO had last week said it was the victim of a hack that may have leaked as much as 1.5 terabytes of show data, including a script to an upcoming episode of Game of Thrones.

According to a report from Entertainment Weekly, upcoming episodes of a couple series and at least one alleged script or treatment have been put online by hackers who breached the company’s systems — with more threatened to be coming soon.

However, The Guardian reports that in a five-minute video letter addressed to HBO chief executive Richard Plepler, the hackers told the company to pay within three days or they would put online the HBO shows and confidential corporate data they claim to have stolen.

The hackers did not publicly state their desired amount, but the redacted note reads, “Our demand is clear and non-negotiable: we want XXXX dollars to stop leaking your data.”

“HBO spends $12m for market research and $5m for [Game of Thrones series seven] advertisements. So consider us another budget for your advertisements.”

It was signed: “Mr Smith”.

The hackers claim it took six months to break into HBO’s network, and that they spend $500,000 a year purchasing so called zero-day exploits that let them break into networks through holes not yet known to Microsoft and other software companies.

#RIPChester: Linkin Park Singer Chester Bennington Passes On At 41

Featured Image

Chester Bennington, the lead singer for the platinum-selling hard rock band Linkin Park, has died aged 41, LA County Coroner says.

Brian Elias, the chief of operations for the Los Angeles County coroner’s office, who confirmed the death, in Palos Verdes Estates, said his body was found dead in his home near Los Angeles at 09:00 local time (17:00 GMT) on Thursday.

The coroner said it was being investigated as a possible suicide after law enforcement authorities responded to a call shortly after 9 a.m. – meaning, Bennington might have hanged himself.

Bennington was said to be close to Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell, who took his own life in May.

Formed in 1996, Linkin Park have sold more than 70 million albums worldwide and won two Grammy Awards.

The band had a string of hits including Faint, In The End and Crawling, and collaborated with the rapper Jay-Z.

Mr. Bennington had been open about his struggles with drug and alcohol addiction, which had fueled many of his biggest hits with Linkin Park.

“I have been able to tap into all the negative things that can happen to me throughout my life by numbing myself to the pain, so to speak, and kind of being able to vent it through my music,” he said in a 2009 interview with the website Noisecreep. “I don’t have a problem with people knowing that I had a drinking problem. That’s who I am, and I’m kind of lucky in a lot of ways ′cause I get to do something about it.”

360Fresh: TnJ – Merciful King (prod. DJ ToxiQ)

Featured Image

TnJ aka The Gem King, is clearly the acclaimed innovator and leader of the new school class of Christian Rappers, as he proceeds to up the ante without permission from no one with this material. The Gem King releases his highly anticipated single titled ”MERCIFUL KING”. This offering comes as the second single off his even more highly sought after EP Project; ”HPHW: HIP PRAISE HOP WORSHIP (The EP)”.

The maestro of sorts, clearly showcases that he is not inept in artistry and is open to experimentation. TnJ’s previous single, Oghene Is In The Matter racked up such an impressive buzz, which saw the single airing as far as New Jersey after it’s release; Merciful King however, possesses a variety of elements capable of igniting an inner orchestra that you probably didn’t even know was there.

This is no ordinary tune, it is not your everyday Christian and/or Rap Music; this one is a certified jam of life. DJ Toxiq (the foremost female producer & DJ in Nigeria, if not Africa), was definitely on another level of greatness when she laced the beat. The song was mixed and mastered by producer, singer and sound engineer extraordinaire, Jimoh Waxiu.

The Gem Kings have left hints, that this offering by TnJ alias TnJeezy (on all social media platforms) is the song that ushers in the Hip Praise Hop Worship EP, speculated to drop July 31st. We cant help but anticipate this project, with songs like Oghene Is In The Matter & Merciful King as forerunners, we expect the EP to have no limits whatsoever.

Popular R&B star R Kelly has been accused of keeping a number of women in homes in Chicago and Atlanta as members of a sex-obsessed, abusive cult, with several sets of parents coming forward to speak about the shocking claims.

An investigation for BuzzFeed News by Jim DeRogatis, who has long followed the trail of stories about the singer, suggests that as of summer 2016 there were at least five unnamed women involved, two of them then-teenagers over the age of consent.

In an attempt to buttress the allegation, three former members of the R&B singer’s entourage have also come forward and confirmed the parents’ claims of his controlling behaviour.

It was gathered that the website interacted with Cheryl Mack, Kitti Jones, and Asante McGee – all former members of Kelly’s entourage – about the sort of treatment endured by young women who find themselves pulled into the singer’s orbit.

Speaking to Buzzfeed, Mack was quoted as saying: “You have to ask for food. You have to ask to go use the bathroom … [Kelly] is a master at mind control … He is a puppet master.”

The accusations against Kelly include that he confiscated the women’s phones, filmed sexual activity with them to show male friends and demanded the women – who call him “daddy” – ask permission to leave their rooms, rented by Kelly in buildings in Chicago and Atlanta.

Jones accuses Kelly of slapping her and holding her against a tree after she was deemed to be too friendly towards a Subway employee.

Meanwhile, a representative for Kelly spoke out on Monday afternoon about the claims, saying the singer ‘unequivocally denies’ them and said he will ‘work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and to clear his name’.

“We can only wonder why folks would persist in defaming a great artist who loves his fans, works 24/7, and takes care of all of the people in his life,” Linda Mensch wrote. “He works hard to become the best person and artist he can be. It is interesting that stories and tales debunked many years ago turn up when his goal is to stop the violence; put down the guns; and embrace peace and love. I suppose that is the price of fame. Like all of us, Mr Kelly deserves a personal life. Please respect that.”

VIDEO: Phlow – Str8 Up

Featured Image

After releasing an ill all-female posse cut with members of her Str8Buttah Productions crew, Lagos-based artist Phlow goes solo and gets fired up in the video for her new single, “Str8 Up.”

Lyrically, she’s as sharp as ever, spitting slick lyrics centering on the concept of never settling and never slowing down as an artist. And she does it over a more minimalist and booming instrumental from frequent collaborator Teck-Zilla, who’s definitely showing off his versatility here, too. These two have a number of standout tracks together over the past few years, and they only seem to outdo each other with each subsequent release.

While Phlow’s lyrics absolutely drive the visuals for “Str8 Up,” there’s plenty to be said for the stellar work of the directorial crew, RCube Vision. They drop bits and pieces of her bars throughout the video by highlighting her particularly tough rhymes with animation, which is complemented by some serious dance moves. It all feels like a celebration of the global Hip-Hop culture we’re living in, and “Str8 Up” is one hell of an anthem for it.

Check out the visuals and stay on the lookout for more leaks and info on Phlow’s forthcoming LP, Flux, due out later this year via Str8Buttah Productions.

VIDEO: Fabian Secon – Wilderness

Featured Image

Fast-rising UK singer Fabian Secon and producer 5ive Beatz have unleashed the J Mornix-directed visuals for “Wilderness”, taken from their independently released collaborative EP, Until We Meet Again—a four-track project that documents the breakdown of a turbulent and troubled relationship.

Speaking on “Wilderness”, the EP’s opening track, Fabian says: “‘Wilderness’ is a dark alternative R&B track that describes the banished love lost between the couple. It paints the picture of destruction that has been created and emphasises the fact that there is no going back.”

“Wilderness”, along with the rest of the EP, was helmed by 5ive Beatz (songwriter/producer) and Fabian Secon (songwriter/lead vocals) with co-writing from Fabian’s father—Grammy Award-nominated, multiplatinum-selling songwriter and producer Lucas Secon (the son of American entrepreneur and Nat King Cole songwriter Paul Secon).

Beyoncé Releases First Photo Of Her Newborn Twins “Sir And Rumi”

Featured Image

Barely a month after the internet was awash with rumors that Beyoncé had given birth to twins, she finally made it official as she shared the first photo of her twins, Rumi and Sir.

The singer posted the picture on her Instagram account in the early hours of Friday, July 14, 2017.

Beyoncé Has “Reportedly” Given Birth To Twins In Los Angeles

In the post, the 35-year-old singer can be seen standing in a Palomo Spain outfit while proudly holding her babies – a posture similar to her viral pregnancy announcement in February, where she stood in front of a flowery backdrop in the photo.

“Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today,” the caption read.

As at the time of filing this report, the post has received more than 8.1 million likes on Instagram.

The Instagram post also served as the official confirmation of the babies names. In June, Beyoncé and Jay-Z reportedly filed trademark documents to secure rights to the names “Rumi Carter” and “Sir Carter.”

About a fortnight ago, Jay-Z had, in his new 10-track album, 4:44, addressed rumours of infidelity that circulated his marriage to Beyoncé, last year – when she released her visual album, Lemonade.

The new album, which features Frank Ocean and Damian Marley, also sees him address Kanye West’s turbulent temperament at the end of 2016.

Few days later, 360nobs reported that Kanye West left Jay Z‘s Tidal streaming service due to a dispute over money.

It should also be noted that the superstar singer and her mogul husband – married in 2008 – are also parents to a five-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
