You will agree with me that it has been a long and slow year in the entertainment industry with the pandemic. Shows are not coming, clubs are not booming, fashion is a little draggy, but I can tell you again that new ideas are being born, new innovations, new creativities. Even though there have been limited shows, a few outings, but we have seen creativities in skits and shot videos that have never been that beautiful. Despite the lockdown, notable Nigerian artists have dropped great songs and award-making albums. Here and there. One that we can’t but talk about is the outstanding maturity in the music of the all-time record-breaking wizkid.  Gone are those times when artists are on the stage miming to their own songs instead of really singing. Not having the crowd to sing along has made a notable, and maybe, long-overdue change to the music world. The…

Davido has been through so many criticisms over his kind music so many times, especially when compared to the likes of Wizkid and Burna Boy. Hearing the young man talk for the first time, you would wonder what music can this one sing. He is not the only one that has been through the voice judgment, Timmy Dakolo had too. If you have ever judge any artist through their voice while talking, you are on a long thing. He has proven so many wrongs since he came into the music industry that the vibe in your voice while you sing and when you talk operate on different levels. He is surely a very talented artist, very outstanding. It has always been wrong so wrong comparing Davido and Widzid as they both operate on two different grounds and are both doing excellently well in the chosen styles. While Wizkid’s newest album…

Nigeria, which turned 60 a few days ago, has always been known as the “Giant of Africa”. It will not be out of place to say that Nigeria, on several parameters, has fallen flat. The Standard of living in Nigeria is bad, the majority of the population fall below the poverty line, the health system is one of the worst in the world, the safety of lives and properties is not guaranteed.

Oye Owolewa, who is originally from  Kwara State Nigeria, a doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) degree holder in Pharmacy from the North-Eastern University, Boston, contested on the platform of the Democratic Party as a ‘shadow’ (non-voting) House of Representative member out of the District of Columbia (DC) and won. This makes Oye the first Nigerian-American to have made it to the US Congress.

Joe Biden is now the favorite to win the presidency, and Republicans are favored to maintain Senate management — however, each outcome is removed from sure. And Democrats did not win the resounding victory that pre-election polls had urged they might. Right here’s the place we stand after a topsy-turvy election evening, through which the state of affairs shifted a number of occasions: The result is unclear in six swing states — Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin — and all are nonetheless counting votes. We could get some closing vote counts at present, whereas others may take a couple of days. “Biden’s the favorite, even when narrowly, nearly all over the place,” Nate Cohn of The Instances tweeted, itemizing 5 of the six states above (all, however, North Carolina). Sean Trende of RealClearPolitics agreed: “Would in all probability slightly be Biden than Trump.” The excellent ballots are largely mail-in ballots, that are…

In America, the people do not vote directly for their president and their vice president. Rather, these positions are selected through a system called the Electoral College. A college is a group of 538 people who are also known as former electors. Each elector represents one vote in the electoral votes. This implies that, for a winner to emerge, one candidate must have 270 electoral votes. In the real sense, the general population is not voting directly to elect their president but are casting their votes for electors who will now vote, on their behalf, for the president. Technically, one can say that electors are party loyalists who pledge to support the candidate who gets the most votes in their state. Electors are chosen in two processes. First, the state political parties nominate electors, either at party conventions or by committee vote. The second part of the process is done…

Nigeria has been agog for the past few days when concerned youths of the country took to the road to protest police brutality. The Special Anti-Robbery Squad, popularly known as SARS was meant to be a special team in the Nigerian Police formed to tackle robbery and criminal cases. Unfortunately, this team of police officers had been known for harassing people, especially, the young. Not just harassment, they brutalized and killed a high number of people and they seemed to do all that without being charged. The Nigerian government, just after a few days into the protest, requested that the Inspector General of the Police disband the SARS. As if that was not enough, a couple of days later, another team was formed, the Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT). If this new team has been allowed to kick off, that would have been the fourth time of recent that…

Shopping looks quite easy but can be really stressful at the same time, especially when there are so many stores around and they all sell practically the same thing.  Some of us, at times, have bought items in a store, thinking we made the best buy, only to find it in another store at a price way cheaper than we got it earlier. It could be painful the first time, but you will ensure not to make that mistake the next time. There have been times when you plan to get some items in a store, but you end up with some other things you never planned to buy. In some cases, as funny as it seems, you might end up not buying that item that brought you to the store. I can remember quite well my first few days in the United States. A bottle of water was sold…
