OPEN LETTER TO HEADIES 2013 Organizers [A MUST READ]

Dear headies 2013 organizers,
Let me start by saying i am not just disappointed in
you but u have just proved to us that Nigeria is not
getting better any time soon . you have been
manipulated by a greedy and hopeless
telecommunications company ( mtn) because they
sponsored your event and you forgot the ultimate
rule
that awards are meant to be impartial and should
be
decided by the general public especially when u
told
us to vote . you distributed the awards among 4
mtn
ambassadors ( iyanya , davido , praiz , and kcee )
and
just 1 glo ambassador won ( waje ) . Is that not
politics or is it coincidence? Now let us analyze.
The headies 2013 was a flop , your stage was
shaped
like a models runway , the choreographers just
lacked
ideas and didn ’ t interpret the music , i have seen a
better performance from Nigeria’ s got talent. What
was the gulder ultimate search theme song that
was
being played throughout the event ? Who on earth
uses
the mavin slaves – dr sit and tiwa gabbage as
presenters of an event ? Oh I forgot , the awards
lacked credibility and substance. Why did majority
of
the winners come from backstage , instead of
coming
from the crowd like it should be ? I watched
nickelodeon kids choice awards this year and it is
far better than the over hyped headies which was
not
properly planned and hurriedly done # shame
Can you explain to us how olamide won best rap
album?
olamide has commercialized rap , we cannot tell if
he
is a rapper or a singer. As far as i am concerned ,
he is just an entertainer like dbanj . so where does
vector, phyno, reminisce, ice prince and illbliss who
represent real hip hop/ rap stand? Don’ t forget that
there is a big difference between commercial rap
and
real rap . all he sings about is remind us that he is
from the street but to be sincere terry g is more
street than olamide and terry is not even a rapper
#justsaying
How can harry song win most mtn most
downloaded
caller tune song for rip Mandela? when did Mandela
die and do u want to compare that dead song with
other club bangers in the same category ? Simple ,
it
is because harrysong is a label mate to your mtn
ambassador (kcee ) . In my opinion jawon , waje ,2
face ,
Clarence peters , blackmagic and davido deserved
there awards. how can wizkid not win any award ?
Someone who has been the most consistent and
sought
after this year . i am sure wizkid declined an
interview from you that ’ s why he didn ‘ t win. in
fact
wizzy should be the artiste of the year . Why did
dbanj, burnaboy , wandecoal , psquare, flavour not
win
anything? oh i know why, it is because they are Glo
ambassadors.
Now explain to me why Sean tizzle won the next
rated
award and he was in the same category as burna
boy
who is obviously more relevant and talented . We
all
know Sean tizzle has the same old boring style and
we can always predict his next song . Phyno too
deserved the next rated award and how on planet
earth
did d- tunes win producer of the year ? Someone
who
recycled 1 beat 5 times ( kukere, your waist ,
mama
eh, lenu by spicy , kilogbe) . so where does ace
producer del b that produced the national anthem
limpopo stand ? You are all insane!!!!!!
Infact, headies, mtn and Pdp should merge and
start a
new political party for the upcoming election in
2015 . it should be named mhdp ( mtn headies
democratic
party) . we all know exactly what happened , mtn
agreed to sponsor your event and they gave you
the
list of who should win. our votes did not count ; do
you think we are blind and foolish like yourself?
Instead of your greedy mtn sponsors to improve
their
network, reduce tariffs and contribute to the growth
of the nation, they will be sending me sms on how
they gave free ipad and mp3 to those who sent a
sms
to a code . They spend all their time looking for how
to extort customers and scam us with their
ridiculous
offers ( free airplane and a trip to the moon )
i am sorry to say sir but if u continues this way
your company will fold up and collapse because
you
are not an epitome of integrity . i am speaking on
behalf of majority of Nigerians who know the truth
and are not afraid to say it . those who feel this
letter is nonsense should not forget to curse , insult
and threaten me on @ baddestdjtimmy. after my
last 2
open letters, i have been insulted , chewed up, spit
out, as being very jobless, hopeless and a broke
laptop dj. you guys don’ t know how much i love
the
insults so it means i am doing a good job and it
makes me stronger . So in conclusion , if u have the
opportunity to host another award show , learn from
your mistakes and let our votes count this time .
Let
those who deserve it win, is that too much to ask?

Reactions From Fans To Eldee’s Support For Gay Rights

Some couple of days ago, Storm Records rapper Eldee
showed his support for gay rights on his
Instagram page and moments later; his post
was trending on social media with majority of
the comments suggesting Eldee may have
burned himself this time;
Read comments below: –
“No elDee. I won’t hate u. Not yet.
But th next time you speak, pls connect tongue
to the brain.
We are Africans and gay in all its ramifications
is anti- Africans.
Talking about free will to do what one pleases, I
pray we won’t see that day when some group of
over zealous psychos will advocate for the right
to kill when u feel as to.”
Wrote a Jacob De Cleopas on a famous bloggers
wall.
“I said it earlier, the devil in the last days will
use idol figures in political, economical, media,
religious, entertainment sector to influence and
institute his own ideals in the world, watch out
for them especially in the entertainment sector,
it is a very vital sector for the devil to lead
many away with too much wealth and make the
world too attractive for you to bother about
heaven, also easy to influence the youth with
entertainment, u guys aint seen or heard
nothing yet, more revelations to come, very
soon most will reveal their logos” wrote another
online commentator.
But not all of the comments have swung hard at
Eldee.
A strong supporter wrote “I think he is right if
you wanna love a goat its your problem and if
you a gal and wants a gal then its your decision,
nobody should force anybody into what they
don’t want they will answer for themselves on
judgement day…”
Majority have called him out to take down the
post on his wall but Eldee has made no further
comments on the isuue and has not removed
the post.

Hmm!!!! Davido: “Skelewu is spiritual!! Juju tins”

Skelewu crooner — Davido, a couple of days ago
went on his Twitter page to taunt his fans,
claiming that his hit “Skelewu” was spiritual and
surrounded by Juju.
It wouldn’t be hard to believe though, after the
worldwide recognition the hit received from the
day it dropped.
He tweeted: – Skelewu”is spiritual and Juju tins.
Accidentally, something happened to the two
music directors who directed the music video:
Music video directors Sesan Ogunro and Moe
Musa lost their dads.
Sesan’s dad, Sesan Ogunro Snr was shot point
blank by armed robbers as he returned from his
church’s Christmas Carol with his family – kids
and grand kids. He was rushed to the hospital,
only to die later on.
Moe Musa’s dad died after a horrific gas
explosion in his kitchen, here in Lagos.

Coincidental or related?

OMG!!! Nigeria Top Comic actor, Saka TURNED DOWN PRESIDENT JONATHAN’S APPOINTMENT

Hafiz Oyetoro also known as Simply Saka has
turned down the appointment given to him by his
excellence, President Goodluck Jonathan of the
Federal Republic of Nigeria as one of his ministers.
The disappointment to Mr president seems to be
the hottest in town as several comments begins to
come up on the social networks from different
angle.
Saka is said not to be happy with Mr President
because he has not improved the lives of many
Nigerians who really needed the help, but rather
than helping the needs, Nigerian government is
adding to those who are absolutely living better.
Though, this act is very rare in this nation.
According to Saka’s tweet on his twitter account
last September 14th “please ignore any rumour of
me being made a minister. Yes, president GEJ
called me and I declined for personal reasons”. This
tweet was retweeted by a Lagos based stand up
comedian, Omobaba that same day.

OJB Jezreel’s family welcomes him as he returns to Nigeria (PHOTO)

Music producer, OJB Jezreel has returned to
Nigeria months after undergoing a successful
kidney transplant in India.
Jezreel, who was earlier expected to return on
Saturday, 7th December 2013, arrived on
Thursday, 5th December 2013.
His return at an earlier date was arranged to
make it a surprise for everyone.
Reports claim that Jezreel
is being lodged now in a
hotel at an undisclosed,
secret location, not far from his Surulere,
Lagos residence.
This is to allow him have enough rest as he
recuperates and to avoid being disturbed by
fans who anxiously looked forward to receive
him.
The music producer returned with his wife,
Mabel Okungbowa, who donated one of her
kidneys to save him.
