I Can't Slow Down No Matter the Setback - #BBNaija Winner, Efe, Drops Video for 'Based on Logistics'

On set of Based on Logistics
 
Winner of 2017 Big Brother Naija reality television show, Efe Michel Ejeba, popularly know as Ede, has released the official music video of his street single, “Based on Logistics”.
 
The track which is his first official single since winning the reality TV show, was produced by his friend and personal producer, Duktor Sett, and was premiered on MTV Base on Friday night.
 
The video was shot on locations in Lagos with cameo appearances from Effyzzie Music Group act, Geniuzz, Nigerian television host, Denrele Edun and fellow BBNaija housemates.
 
While speaking in an exclusive interview with Premium Times,  Efe, who revealed that he is set to embark on his “Based on Logistics Tour” round universities in Nigeria, disclosed some details about the new video. 
 
Here are the excerpts:
 
You recorded “Based on Logistics” before you shared the official audio and video for your rave single “Somebody”. Why did you decide to wait this long to premiere the video for the former?
 
My plan was to release “Based on Logistics” and its video before a new single and video, but based on logistics, it didn’t happen. Being that I don’t know how to slow down no matter the setback, I decided to release another single and video pending when the director of  “Based on Logistics” would deliver.
 
There is an undeniable chemistry between you and Duktor Sett. Are you planning on using any fresh hands for future projects?
 
For now, it’s more projects with Duktor Sett because we have a lot to offer to the world and we just began.
 
This track is a more conscious tune; what inspired it and what reactions have you seen and heard from your teeming fans so far?
 
Yea, I released it three weeks after the house so I was in that mind space. Also people wanted to hear what I had to say and it’s best I inspire them with my words and my story. So far the video has helped in the interpretation; people now connect with the song more from the visuals and expressions.

Read What Archbishop Welby Said After Visiting President Buhari in London

President Buhari: visited by Archbishop Welby of Canterbury 
 
Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, Friday, paid a personal visit to President Muhammadu Buhari at Abuja House, London. The Archbishop and President Buhari are friends, who share deep respect for each other.
Archbishop Welby said he was delighted to see the rapid recovery President Buhari has made from his health challenges, noting that it was a testimony to the healing powers of God, and answer to prayers of millions of people round the world.
 
The cleric pledged to continue praying for both President Buhari and Nigeria.
 
In his response, the Nigerian President thanked Archbishop Welby, whom he noted had always stood by him at critical times, and wished him God’s continued grace in his spiritual duty of leading the Anglican Communion worldwide.
 
When former British Prime Minister, David Cameron described Nigeria as a “fantastically corrupt” country ahead of an anti-corruption summit in London in 2016, Archbishop Welby had retorted: “But this particular President (Buhari) is actually not corrupt.”
 
The Archbishop later personally received the Nigerian President at Lambeth Palace, London, and had also paid a goodwill visit to President Buhari in March this year, during his medical vacation.

Real Reason Terry G Released Governorship Poster

The much-advertized idea about the youths of not being too young to run, has just been given a fillip by sensational hip-hop act Terry G, whose real names are Gabriel Oche Amanyi as he also yesterday declared to support the course #NotTooYoungToRun’ in his campaign poster.

But the truth is Terry G has no political ambition, but only trying to use the idea to 'ginger' the youths towards productivity in their various endeavours in life.

According to Terry G, ‘my intention is to encourage youths and support the course of not too young to run a political office; but my attention has been drawn to a misinterpretation of my ‘legalized ginjah.’ I merely used the cliché to instill in them to amplify the notion and promised them on the need for the masses by legalizing good roads, water stability, power stability, stating that “everything will be fair and legalized”.

Ben Bruce Opens Up on When Buhari Will Return, as Senators are Set to Meet the President

Ben Bruce
The outspoken Senator representing Bayelsa East, Ben Murray-Bruce has hinted that there will be a high-powered meeting between the Senate and the President when he returns. 

While speaking in an exclusive interview with Vanguard on Friday on the State of the Nation, the Senator representing Bayelsa East in the Nigerian Senate, Ben Murray-Bruce, gave hints of a possible high powered meeting between the Senate and President Mohammadu Buhari anytime next week upon his return to Nigeria. 
The Silverbird group CEO, who fumed at the incremental hardship agreed to the feelings that Nigeria has seriously lagged behind in its developmental strides in the last two years, said that the country was momentarily in a big trouble.
According him, a lot of public policies have become antiquated and could not drive Nigeria’s economy in a 21 century world.
He said: “Nigeria has not really made any progress in the last 2 years. I think we are in big trouble right now. When the President gets back, we would need to sit down with him and have a conversation. There is no point having a conversation with anybody who is not a president.

“I am thinking the Senate. We will have a conversation. A bipartisan team will go and meet with Mr. President and have a conversation with him. Not APC senators meeting the president but the Senate meeting him and have a conversation on the future of Nigeria. That’s what I am gonna propose. That we sit down with him and discuss the issues. 

"He’s the president and you can’t change that and I respect constitutional authority. He is the President of Nigeria and we will sit down with him and discuss the problems facing the country. In 2019 when there is another president, that will no another issue. But right now, he is the president and we need to sit down with him and discuss the issues. I understand he will be here next week. Let’s talk to the President directly. I think it is important to speak with the President Buhari.”
On the issues to confront the President with, Senator Bruce said it was all encompassing.

“All the issues affecting the country. This is my proposal. I am going to sit down with the Senate President and say, look, let’s sit down with the President. He’s not an APC President. He’s president of Nigeria. So, I don’t want say APC governors, senators seeing him. He should see Nigeria not APC. This is what I am gonna request, hopefully it will be granted and we are gonna have a conversation.

“Everything agitates my mind. The economy is in trouble, there is inflation, unemployment, schools, every year, a million kids cannot go to school. Automobile policy of Nigeria is 1922 policy. Mass transit policy is 1825. Our educational policy is 1942 policy. Are you kidding? We are in the stone age. These are not caused by him. I don’t want to accuse anybody but previous government did a lousy job. 

"You have a educational policy set up by the colonial masters, have you changed that? Do you have a policy on Power, Health? Name one rich man who does not send his child, or himself to be treated abroad. You spend millions of Naira in Ghana every year on education. You have the health stories in India. So, what is going right? That has to be dealt with. We need to discuss it. I am not a critic, not here to run down anybody but I have a solution to our problem”, he said.

You are the Reason I'm Wicked - Nollywood Actres, Patience Ozokwor Tells Fans

Actress Patience
 
While speaking in an exclusive interview with Saturday Tribune, Nollywood actress, Patience Ozokwor, opened up on her widely known role as a wicked mother, wife and mother-in-law.

“If I am wicked, it is because you love it. I always want to make you happy,” she said as she talked about some of her movie roles.
 
Speaking further she said; “Sometimes, I cry when I watch some of the characters I had played in movies at home. I just thanked God it wasn’t the real me that was involved, but a character.

“Nearly all the movies where I played wicked roles made me cry because I remember what that character had done to somebody.

“I do these jobs to the best of ability because I want to sit down at home, watch and cry over what I’m doing to people.

“Two of the roles that caused me the most tears were: one role where I seized the feeding bottle of a month-old-baby and threw it away.

“I wept profusely after that scene that the director had to stop shooting until I was able to control myself. If someone had done it in real life, I would have exposed the fellow to the world to see.

“There was another one where I went to take my sister’s daughter from the village, what I did to the girl, if any human being can do it to a fellow human being, I don’t know what God would do to that person in turn. I met her in the kitchen, beat her so much that she fell down the stairs, rolled down and died from broken head and pains all over.

“I’d been playing wicked roles but those two movies are exceptionally horrible. I doubt that any human being would do that to anyone.”
 
On the  morality of her roles, she said; “When I play the role of a bad woman, I see myself at that instance as a mirror through which I want society to see and appreciate the fact that it is not good to be bad. 

"This is the reason I do it with so much passion that it becomes almost believable. I also see such roles as an opportunity to minister to lost and wicked souls that jealousy, hatred, envy and all the likes can only bring one to ruins.”

Cristiano Ronaldo Eyes Premier League Return

 
Cristiano Ronaldo
 
Cristiano Ronaldo told a Spanish court he “would like to return to England” due to his tax troubles in Spain, Spanish radio station Cadena Ser reported on Saturday.
 
The Real Madrid star was called to testify in court on Monday over accusations he evaded 14.7 million euros ($17.3 million) in tax on his image rights via a complicated web of shell companies based in the British Virgin Islands and Ireland.
 
However, Ronaldo has insisted he did not create a “special structure” to manage his image rights when he moved to Real in 2009 but simply maintained the one set up in 2004 while he was at Manchester United.
 
That structure had been recommended to the Portuguese captain by United via their specialist sports lawyer Chris Farnell.
 
“Chris told me it was what all the footballers did and I didn’t want to be an exception,” Ronaldo added in court.
 
“On the field I always want to be an exception, but off it I want to be like everyone else.”
 
If Ronaldo is found guilty he faces a fine of at least 28 million euros and potentially a three-and-a half year jail term, according to the Gestha union of experts at Spain’s Inland Revenue.
 
However, despite being just the latest in a series of high-profile players to be investigated over their image rights in recent years, Ronaldo believes he is being targeted due to his fame.
 
If I wasn’t called Cristiano Ronaldo I wouldn’t be here,” Ronaldo also reportedly told the court according to Spanish media.
 
The four-time World Player of the Year posted on social media site Instagram on Tuesday: “What bothers people is my brilliance, insects only attack lamps that shine!!!!”
 
Ronaldo will return to training with his Madrid teammates later on Saturday for the first time since lifting the Champions League final in June.
 
Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane had given Ronaldo an extended break due to his participation in the Confederations Cup with Portugal and his court appearance.

I think its a bit surprising when you see people doing what's not common but i think in this case of some Nigeria celebrities showing interest in elective offices has to do with the "Not Too Young To Run bill " That was currently passed by the House of Senate and Representatives, so i think this has given the youths opportunity to campaign for political offices and i believe that's what motivated these celebs.

5 Uche Madagwu

Justin Bieber not been Charged For Knocking down a Photographer? Hope so

Justin Bieber can breathe a sigh of relief because cops are not recommending any criminal charges against him for accidentally running his truck into a paparazzo.

Law enforcement sources say they've determined Bieber had no intent to strike the paparazzo when he left church last week.

Bieber's monster truck had knocked the photographer to the ground on that particular day.

Cops further say the photog was in the wrong for standing in the street, but since that's a minor crime he won't be charged because it wasn't committed in the presence of police. Fair enough on both sides? Let's hope their won't be a civil suit.
