This post was due in January.. But I mean we are still in the first quarter of the year so it’s not too late!
A new year is upon us which means 12 months of brand spanking new music, videos and albums! Now, you know it would not be a new year without me naming who I think will be the ones to watch for 2015 so without further ado (and me rambling) here are my top 3 artists to watch this year and why.
1. Korede Bello
The baby faced, baby voiced Mavin heartthrob first popped up on the scene last year on popular Mavin hit Dorobucci alongside fellow new Mavin additions Reekado Banks and Di’Ja. The young crooner sung and smiled his way into the hearts of young females across across the world (My little sister to mention). He then followed up with popular singles African Princess, Cold Outside, Jingle…

As our nation approaches perhaps the most crucial election in our history, all true patriots are called to deeper reflection of the basic ingredients that bind the nation together- our common freedom, peace and unity. This reflection is even more relevant in the face of the illegal postponement of the general elections- a feat achieved through various sinister ploys and with the sole aim of avoiding the will and verdict of the people. In all of these, I feel the urge to communicate my personal vision and thoughts to the people of our great country, especially on the question of religion, a sensitive matter for many citizens that has become the most frequently used tool by the ruling party. This affords me an opportunity to give my response to the ruling party’s false propaganda and lies against my person.
Needless to say, we must at all times hold the unity…

He’s a Hero👍
As my posts last week were a bit morbid, I thought I would bring a more positive light to my topic of today. A civil rights worker in a town in Nigeria rescued about 500 schoolgirls from being attacked and kidnapped by the Boko Haram. This organization affiliated itself with ISIS and has a self-declared caliphate across Nigeria. Their name translates to, “Western Education in Forbidden”. Usually, when they enter a city, they take all of the young girls and use them for laundering weapons, cooks, or as sex slaves. I G Wala saved 500 girls from this fate, which is an astonishingly heroic act.
The acts of Boko Haram have been going on for over a year, and they frequently attack children. Last February, they attacked a Federal Government College of Buni Yadi and killed 59 boys attending the school. A month ago, they attacked another school…
