2009 has been a great year for us for the simple fact that this is our first year open. By this time last year, there was no such thing as jaguda.com. I still remember back in march when we (the jaguda.com team) were pondering over what we wanted to do with this site. I still remember sending mass texts to friends asking for opinions and suggestions, and now here we are at the end of the year and I can say that we have definitely come a long way. A lot of times we can get caught up in our ambitions that we forget to look back at how far we’ve gotten, and all the help we got along the way, directly or indirectly.

With that being said, We at jaguda.com will like to thank the following people, organizations, and websites for supporting us through our first calendar year. We really appreciate it.

First and foremost, we’d like to thank the Jaguda.com Staff:

Aribaba for writing all the crazy stuff. DoublePrince for consistently covering every event he could get a hold of. Mekus for being the business engine behind the site.

Next we’d like to give a huge thank you to the original writers and editors on jaguda.com when we were not even visible to most nigerians. One babe like that – For being our first trouble maker with ur post on African vs African American women. As much as that pissed people off, the traffic was ridiculous… Thanks for the spamming on Naija websites too. Fashion411 – Thanks for all you support and promotion, and for being our first fashion writer.. For believing is us when a lot doubted what we were trying to do. Original Mgbeke - Thanks for your support, and exposure on your personal blog… Nah u give us small levels man. Local Boy – thanks for all the support and promo in j-town. Meyonce, Meyonce… I no fit even start with the thanks man… thanks for those your posts that drove traffic to the site, and for bombarding Naija Ryders with jaguda.com links. Odunayo – you be better person. Your Friday Fashion fix has diversified us a great deal. Thanks for it. Sanka Sanka Sanka – Our other trouble maker. Omo U already know the way now… Preciate the support my guy.

Next we’ll like to thanks the folks that supported us in the beginning with ideas, suggestions, and just all around support… even if it’s just as simple as telling a friend to check out the site. Nonso, Chinedu, Igwe (Omo you repped jaguda.com mad… Thanks for the major support and connects), 60Watz, Miyo86, Vanchizzle, Shubby( u promoed like this is ur handwork), Fonnie, Yoshi, Moyo (thanks for the mad support), Tosin, Somie, Bisi Ogene, Aphrodite, Ngozi aka Benediction (Madam – Thanks for the encouraging words always), Tochuwku, Chuka, Chisom, Jay, Akin, Outlook Nation (big ups to outlook nation). Thanks a lot.

If we forget you no vex… Thanks for the mad support… sometimes the comments are more interesting than the post itself… Thanks a lot.

Omo we know that no naija website can move forward without major support from other naija organizations that are also doing big things. Major shout outs to Notjustok.com (Demola and Ovie)… you guys are really doing it big for naija music. Thanks for the support man and for letting us know what naija music is worth listening to at all. DJ Mighty Mike… Our personal person – I no fit shout man. You’ve been a great help, pub, and sending promo music. Bella Naija – Thanks for being the source of all inspiration for almost all naija blog sites on the internet.

I’m liking the way the Carnival in Calabar is gaining some serious rep in the world. Storm 360, BounceBack Media and the Cross River State Govermnent is bringing Keri Hilson down to Calabar to perform and on the 28th Wyclef Jean will hit up the stage also.

Both events are going to be held at the Calabar stadium. As Keri Hilson said… 50,000 strong. If u dey calabar u suppose enter.

Fela
Fela

Jay-Z, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have signed on as producers of the new Broadway musical “Fela!” and will attend the show’s opening night at the Eugene O’Neill Theater next Monday, Nov. 23, a publicist for the production said.

“Fela!” represents the first time that Jay-Z and the Smiths have joined a producing team of a Broadway show. Their artistic involvement in the musical is bound to be minimal, given that the show is already in previews and had a critically acclaimed run Off Broadway last year.

But the presence of three high-wattage celebrities at opening night, and the likelihood that they will promote the show through television appearances and media interviews, is bound to raise the public profile of “Fela!” at a time when theatergoers have plenty of choices for Broadway musicals.

Conceived by the Tony Award-winning choreographer Bill T. Jones, “Fela!” centers on the life and work of the Afrobeat superstar Fela Anikulapo Kuti. There are no widely known stars in the cast, which makes the involvement of Jay-Z and the Smiths even more of a boon for marketing purposes. It was not known on Monday how much money the three had invested in the musical; the three were not immediately available for interviews, said the publicist, Billy Zavelson.

He also confirmed that the opening date would be Nov. 23, as originally scheduled. At first, Jay-Z had a scheduling conflict for Nov. 23, so the 24th became an option if the Smiths could rearrange their own calendar. But the alignment of the three stars has been worked out, and all of them will be making a relatively rare red-carpet appearance on Broadway.

This is Big for Naija, and I hope a lot of us go support this. I know, I’ll be there one of these days. The Musical will continue showing till end of April, so if you’re in the NYC area you should definitely check it out. For more info on the show, please visit http://www.felaoffbroadway.com
