Why I Jump On Wizkid’s Ojuelegba Remix – Drake

In his cover story for the 100th issue of FADER Magazine Drake speaks for the first time about why he jumped on the surprise remix of Wizkid’s Ojuelegba a few months back.

He told the magazine

I just did it because I was in the moment. I wasn’t thinking like, ‘Oh man, I gotta get my brand up in Nigeria.’” Not to say that’s not important. I’m super-honored to be on that song.
He also sets the record straight about those Meek Mill ghost writing allegations and his beef with the rapper!

On The Rap Beef with Meek Mill, which started after Meek accused him of using a ghostwriter

It was weighing heavy on me
This is a discussion about music, and no one’s putting forth any music? Nobody told you that this was a bad idea, to engage in this and not have something?

I didn’t get it. I didn’t get how there was no strategy on the opposite end. I just didn’t understand. I didn’t understand it because that’s just not how we operate.

Does he use ghostwriters?

I need, sometimes, individuals to spark an idea so that I can take off running. I don’t mind that. And those recordings-they are what they are. And you can use your own judgment on what they mean to you. If I have to be the vessel for this conversation to be brought up-you know, God forbid we start talking about writing and references and who takes what from where — I’m OK with it being me.
It’s just, music at times can be a collaborative process, you know? Who came up with this, who came up with that-for me, it’s like, I know that it takes me to execute every single thing that I’ve done up until this point. And I’m not ashamed.

[DOWNLOAD] EMPIRE Season 2 Episode 1: The Devils Are Here


Three months after his arrest, Lucious tries to
run Empire Entertainment while in federal
lockup; Cookie stages a star-studded concert in
support of Lucious while Andre, Hakeem, Anika
and Mimi Whiteman (Marisa Tomei) attempt a
hostile takeover.
After a year of waiting, we finally have a new
premiere episode for Empire , and by was the
wait worth it. When we lat left Cookie and
Lucious, one of them was going to jail and the
other was trying to determine what the next
move for the empire was. It was a perfect script
flip from what happened at the beginning of the
series with Cookie getting out of prison and
Lucious determining the next move for his music
But now it’s Lucious in prison and Cookie on the
loose — and everything we saw in the season
premiere of Empire suggests we’re going to be
in for a a thrilling season. We had a murder plot,
a failed hit on Lucious and a few major power
plays that involved the flipping of a few scripts
on a couple of characters who didn’t see it coming.

Senators Hold Emergency Meeting Over Saraki/Code Of Conduct Issue, Vow To Deal With Cabal


About 50 Senators cutting across different political
parties in the senate, convened an emergency meeting in
Abuja on September 19th where they discussed the
Code of Conduct Tribunal’s invitation to Senate
President Bukola Saraki over his alleged false
declaration of assets.
Daily Trust reports that the senators at the meeting
exonerated President Buhari of being behind the current
crisis facing the senate President but accused “a cabal”
within the presidency who they say is instigating the
government institutions against Senate President Saraki.
Rising from the meeting which lasted for about 4 hours
with some senators joining the meeting via telephone,
the convener of the meeting, Senator Bala Ibn Na’Allah
said they had unanimously resolved to support the anti-
corruption war of President Buhari and also to deal
decisively with the cabal.
“We have resolved to use all available powers under the
constitution to ensure that no cabal exists and run the
government on behalf of Buhari and we have also
resolved to deal decisively with the cabal,” he said.
Also another senator who spoke on the condition of
anonymity after the meeting said
“Our colleagues were angry at the beginning of the
meeting because they were initially suspecting that the
President has hand in the trial of Saraki.
But after heated debate, they understood that Buhari
was not responsible for it. One of our colleagues
present at the meeting suggested that the Senate
should reconvene on Monday in order to address the
His suggestion, however, did not see the light of day as
we resolved to use other channels to address the

Idris Elba ‘too street’ to play James Bond –


NEW YORK, NY – NOVEMBER 25: Actor Idris
Elba attends the screening of “Mandela: Long
Walk to Freedom”, hosted by U2, Anna Wintour
and Bob & Harvey Weinstein, with Burberry at
the Ziegfeld Theater on November 25, 2013 in
New York City. (Photo by Ben Gabbe/FilmMagic)
The writer of the new James Bond novel
“Trigger Mortis” has set off a firestorm with a
remark about Idris Elba .
Anthony Horowitz recently told the Daily Mail
that he believes Elba is “probably a bit too
‘street’ for Bond. Is it a question of being suave?
Elba has long been touted as the fans’ choice to
become the first black Bond.
For some, the reference to Elba as “too street”
was code for “too black.”
“Between The World and Me” author Ta-Nehisi
Coates tweeted that Hororwitz should “Just be
honest and say ‘ James Bond ’s being white is
important to me’ and be done with it.”

  Youths all over the country applied, those who met the stated
requirements were shortlisted for a Computer-Based Aptitude Test. The
test was conducted by Dragnet, a firm that specializes in handling
recruitment tests for reputable companies in Nigeria like Chevron,
Oando and others. The test was conducted between 20th and 24th of
April, in four different locations across the country :Lagos, Abuja,
ABU-Zaria and UNEC-Enugu.
    The candidates who passed the Computer-Based Aptitude Test were
then asked to report to the Service Commands in their various states
of origin for physical examination, document verification and oral
interview. this also happened between the 5th and 7th of may,2015.
The successful candidates were selected based on their total scores,
from the Computer-Based Aptitude Test, physical examination, document
verification and oral interview within their state of origin, in a way
that satisfied provision of Federal Character. We were then asked to
report to the various training schools for preliminary documentation
and collection of appointment letters on the 25th of May 2015. The
Level 3 cadres (Immigration Assistants) reported to Ahoada in Rivers
State, the Level 6 cadres (Assistant Inspectors) reported to Orlu in
Imo State, while the level 8 cadres ( Assistant Superintendents)
reported to Kano. The level 3 candidates (900 in number) and the level
6 (700 in number) were issued appointment letters while the level 8
candidates (400 in number) were given posting letters to their various
Service Commands, signed by the Comptroller of Immigration Service
(APU), Mr. Oyedeji TV, on behalf of the CGI. It reads: “I am directed
to inform you that the above named newly recruited personnel has been
posted to your command for attachment and induction with immediate
effect, pending when they will be sent for training.
2.The letter of appointment will be sent in due course.
3.Please acknowledge receipt and date which the newly recruited staff
reported to duty.”

 The Assistant Superintendents were not given appointment letter
because the Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration and Prison Board (CDFIPB)
who are in charge of issues relating to appointment and promotion of
officers in the superintendent cadre, refused to issue their
appointment letters. All the 2000 candidates were documented and given
Service Numbers.
 It is therefore surprising that the reports we read in the National
Dailies excludes the 400 recruited Assistant Superintendent Officers.
They reported 1600 instead of 2000 officers that were recruited into
the service
    Mr. President, we want to confidently tell you that the
recruitment process was free, fair, open and credible and that the
successful candidates are the ones chosen on merit. we are therefore
not surprised that perhaps some who could not field their candidates
through the back door are aggrieved and wants the recruitment
cancelled .
    Besides, the 2000 recruited officers have undergone three months
induction training in their various state commands. They have learnt
some nitty-gritty of the job; they were taught among other things, how
to strip and assemble fire-arms, the principles of marksmanship,
weapon handling and combat mindset. They have been equipped and
prepared for the job and are ready for service to their fatherland.
They were only waiting to be called to their various training schools
before they were dispersed and secretly sent home to avoid public
Your Excellency sir, we cannot forget that phenomenal day, when we all
watched with enthusiasm our new president speak to us; where you said
among other notable things: “Unemployment, notably youth un-employment
features strongly in our Party’s Manifesto” which is to create at
least 1million new jobs every year, for the foreseeable future. We are
neither APC nor PDP members, we are Nigerian youths and upon this
ground we plead you to confirm the appointment of these 2000 recruits,
as it would reduce the number of the unemployed.
We trust your judgments as we hope to receive it in our favor.

Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria

Kim Kardashian Considers Removing Uterus


Kim Kardashian is considering removing her uterus after
the birth of her second child. The reality TV star and
socialite tells the new issue of C Magazine her current
pregnancy may be her last due to health issues she
suffered when North, her baby daughter with husband
Kanye West, was born.
Kardashian experienced placenta accreta, which results
in the placenta attaching itself to the wall of the uterus
rather than getting expelled with the baby. The condition
can lead to severe blood loss, and the star’s doctors are
advising her to take drastic action if there’s a problem
“They think I’ll have placenta accreta again, so if the
placenta grows a little bit deeper than it did last time,
then they are prepared to have my uterus removed,
which is a little scary for me.
“I think we’re just gonna go day by day, see how
overwhelming it is, and see how the delivery goes.”
Kardashian also told the publication that the criticism
she was subjected to as she gained weight while
carrying North changed her whole attitude towards
photographers and the media. In fact she copied
Victoria Beckham’s sullen style and refused to smile for
the cameras.
“It was the worst! I couldn’t help it, and everyone would
say, ‘She can’t stop eating’.
“I delivered at 180 [pounds – 81.65 kg] and they were
like, ‘She’s 210 pounds. She’s getting dumped because
she’s too fat’ and all these ridiculous stories. It really
took a toll after the fact, when I was losing weight. I
gained 50 pounds, and it’s tough to get it off. I was
dedicated, but also, it changed the way I viewed
wanting my picture taken.
“Before I was always smiling, and so into being out and
about. After I had the baby, I was like, ‘These are the
same people that made fun of me, and posted the
stories that were so awful, calling me fat for something
I couldn’t control. I don’t want to smile for them. I don’t
want to be out’.
“Even if I was more confident, I just didn’t feel like being
that girl who was going to be smiling for every photo. It
changed my mood; it changed who I was; it changed
my personality a lot.”

President Buhari Dissociates Himself From Campaign Promises


President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday disowned two
of his campaign documents containing promises on
what he would do in his first 100 days in office.
A statement from his Senior Special Assistant on Media
and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu titled:
“Understanding Buhari in 100 days” pointedly disowned
two campaign documents which he said emanated from
some of party’s “so many centres of public
communication which, for whatever reason, were on the
“There is a certain document tagged “One Hundred
Things Buhari Will Do in 100 Days” and the other, “My
Covenant With Nigerians.” Both pamphlets bore the
authorised party logo but as the Director of Media and
Communications in that campaign, I did not fund or
authorise any of those. I can equally bet my last Kobo
that Candidate Buhari did not see or authorise those
“As a consequence of these publications, expectations
have been raised unreasonably, that as President,
Muhammadu Buhari will wave his hand and all the
problems that the country faces — insecurity, corruption,
unemployment, poor infrastructure would go away.
“But that notwithstanding, President Buhari has given
the job his best shot and the whole country is saying
that we never had it so good. He has re-instituted the
values of hard work and administrative efficiency. The
President says times without number that this country
needs to fix governance and that he won’t tolerate
“In the area of economic management, Nigerians are
already seeing things happen that they thought were
not possible in so short a time.
“He didn’t put a Kobo to finance the power sector. Yet,
reading his body language alone and knowing that there
are things you cannot do and get away with under
Buhari, electricity supply all over the country has risen
to unprecedented heights.
“In this country, appointments and removal from office
are done usually in accordance with a spoils system.
“A new government sacks officials on the basis only
that it did not appoint them, but the predecessor-
administration [did].
“President Buhari has shown that his government is
different. He wants to look at each case on its own
merit and it is clear by now that he is not ready to
surrender the country to burnt out politicians.
Technocrats will have a big place in his administration.
He has appointed no ministers yet, but the government
is running smoothly.
“In this period of three months, government certainly
deserves a pat on the back for improved power, reform
in the energy sector, foreign relations, fight against
corruption and insurgency and the fact of Nigerians
being at peace, not only among themselves, but with
their neighbors and the rest of the world,” he declared,
while adding that “President Buhari will turn out to be a
leader in the tradition of Lee Kuan-Yu and India’s
current reform-minded Prime Minister Modi with strong
and clear emphasis on detail and execution. He may
however differ with them by not micro-managing

38 Virgins Killed In Bus Crash On Their Way To ‘Topless’ Dance Festival For King Of Swaziland


Dozens of virgin girls and young women were killed as
they traveled to the traditional festival where the King
of Swaziland is know to pick a new bride from
thousands of topless, dancing virgins.
The tragic accident, which happened along the MR3
Highway, Mahhala, involved two trucks, which were
ferrying maidens and a sedan.
According to Times of Swaziland, at least 38 of them
died when the open-topped truck collided with another
vehicle, before being hit by a second truck as it
travelled along a motorway between the Swazi cities of
Mbabane and Manzini on Friday afternoon.
The girls were all taking part in the Swazi Reed Dance
Festival, an annual event which sees tens of thousands
of unmarried girls – or ‘maidens’ – perform for King
Mswati III.
Last year, he plucked a 19-year-old virgin from the
dancing maidens, who became his 14th wife.
According to witnesses, traffic police officers pulled-over
a Toyota van along the highway and that was when the
first truck failed to avoid hitting the car as it smashed
into the Toyota’s rear. This caused the pile up as the
second truck crashed onto the truck which also had the
excited maidens on board.
One of the maidens who survived the accident, in an
interview with the Swazi News, confirmed the account
of some of the witnesses.
“We were about 50 on board the first truck that
smashed into the Toyota van and was crashed from the
rear by the other truck which was driving behind ours,”
Siphelele Sigudla (18) said.
Rights group The Swaziland Solidarity Network (SSN)
has now called on the royal family to reconsider going
ahead with the festival, which sees about 40,000
participating in the eight-day ceremony.
The girls and young women sing and dance, often bare-
breasted, as they bring reeds to reinforce the windbreak
around the royal residence, a government website said.
‘We hope that the families of the deceased girls will hold
the royal family accountable for the deaths of their
children,’ the group said in a statement, as it alleged a
similar incident had been covered up previously.’The
least that the royal family can do at this moment is to
cancel this year’s reed dance.’
But the King has already sent his condolences.
‘We all have heard about the dark cloud that has
befallen the ‘imbali,” he said, using the Swati language
word for flower, used to refer to the groups of women
He promised that the affected families would be

Man With ‘World’s Longest Manhood” Says Women Are Scared To Sleep With Him | PHOTOs


A man who claims he has the world’s largest penis
says women are too scared to have sex with him.
Super-endowed Roberto Esquivel Cabrera also claims
his manhood is actually a disability that leaves him
unable to work.Not only that, but the 52-year-old’s
18.9in member is so long that ladies are afraid of it.
The member hangs well below his knees and he wants
his ‘gift’ to be recognised by the Guinness Book of
world Records. Cabrera has approached health services
to support his claim he is disabled.
He said:
“Look where it is, it goes far below the knees.I cannot
do anything, I cannot work, and I am a disabled so I
want authorities to declare me as a disabled person and
give me support.Then, I want to go to the Guinness to
get recognition.”
And doctors at a health centre in the city of Saltillo, in
the north-eastern Mexican state of Coahuila, have
confirmed that “according to the scan” in 3D, it is
A doctor there said the main part of his willy was just
over 6 inches long and the rest was extra skin.
Medical experts suggest troubled Cabrera might be able
to opt for a voluntary modification of his anatomy and
have a shaft reduction operation.
He was deported from the USA to Saltillo in 2011 and
lives alone in a room given to him by his brothers.


He survives on social assistance and scavenges for food
and materials on waste dumps.
He has no friends and wherever he goes he says people
shun him.
