Created by legendary performer Fela Ransome- Kuti- one of the greatest musicians in Nigerian history, Afrobeats quickly made waves spreading across the...
I’m impressed by this write up on "Who Will Rescue Nigerian Record Producers" by Akinyemi Ayinoluwa. After reading this article, you all see reasons why a prolific producer like OJB is out there pleading for a donation of $15m to save his life after he has produced great songs...

Would it be right to say that as long as you have gotten something in exchange for sex or companionship, you are a “Runs girl” or “runs boy”?? Please do take note of the fact that I used the term “runs boy”, because Nigerian boys/men recently seem to be...
Written by Tunde Fagbenle. The photograph splashed on the front page of virtually all Nigerian newspapers of Tuesday, September 24, was of our President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, finally in a one-on-one with America’s President, Barak Obama.
