PHOTO: Sinzu’s Mugshot From An Arrest Surfaces Online

A few days ago, Sinzu had come out to deny that he was involved with debit card fraud or current investigation. He took it a step further to say that Godwon (who he has beef with) was responsible for spreading the rumors.

Sinzu has been allegedly linked with a security video showing a man withdrawing money from an ATM. The problem is authorities believe that ATM card didn’t belong to the man in question.

A mugshot from an arrest just surfaced online with a date of December,2013. It doesn’t go inline with the story of someone being wanted now, but it does mean there are a lot of questions that Sinzu hasn’t answered.

ENT NEWS: See Few Thoughts Of P-Square’s Fans On Twitter

Twitter has been a bee hive since rumours of a rift between duo Peter and Jude Okoye emerged.

Fans and haters alike took to the popular social media to express various opinions, say prayers, dish out steaming advices and also lay blames as the suspects’ feet.

While most fans prayed for a solution to the rift other than a break-up, a number of people did not ‘give a damn’, preferring to diss the twin entertainers instead.

Ovation Magazine owner and politician ‏@DeleMomodu preferred to seek an end to the crisis rather than lay blames.

“We should not judge on the basis of who’s wrong and who’s right; the illustrious Psquare family made Africa very proud!” he said.

Some fans were obviously yet to come to terms with a possible end to the Psquare group.

“This Psquare rumour better be fake. That’s d best thing that happened to African music,” ‏@iamslimbrown said.

For folks like ‏@doktafelz, a break up of the P-Square brothers was nothing for concern.

He said, “Pray against Psquare split? D’banj and jazzy sef we no pray so who tha hell Dem be?”

 Temisan Okomi ‏@temiokomi also thought there was no big deal in it.

“The Jacksons were a bigger group. They broke up too. So…bleh,” he wrote.

Others like ‏@willadebo urged caution because. To them, both brothers need each other to succeed.

“Lol! Actually, PSquare can’t afford to split. Their music was never that awesome anyways. Wait! Who’s gon listen to PeterO music?” ‏@willadebo posted.

Same view was held by ‏@Joefranky1 who tweeted his admonition, “Psquare, you both serve as your destiny helper,stay together. God has made you channel of greatness, Never work alone.”

The woman connection appeared and many fans blamed Peter Okoye’s better half Lola Omotayo.

@Echecrates alleged this in his tweet which read, “Funny enough when I hosted Psquare for a concert and somebody asked em why they aren’t married they said women complicate matters.”

“Please which wife is causing this Psquare break up? She has to go…” @ZinnieD also wrote.

Meanwhile, other fans were only concerned about the next P-Square song.

A fan ‏@its_ZIBI tweeted, “Dear Psquare when will our new songs come out?”

NOLLYWOOD: Actresses At War! Mercy Johnson And Chika Ike In War Of Supremacy

If we are to believe what Nollywood insiders are whispering, then star actresses Mercy Johnson and Chika Ike are not on good terms owing to what many tag as war of supremacy. 

Info reaching us says that Mercy is actually the one who believes that some of her colleagues especially Chika, do not give her the respect she deserves as the best in the act, at least at the moment. The insiders claim that Mercy is not happy that Chika does not ‘bow down’ to her.

Aside that, they say that Mercy Johnson sees herself as the better actress since she is the most coveted actress in the industry right now.

She was heard to have boasted to some of her colleagues that she’s by far better than Chika and that placed side by side, her movies will out-sell those of Chika Ike and that she also commands higher figure than other actresses.

As normal with such gist, they found a way of filtering into Chika’s ears and she did not find such funny and that began the era of their cold war. The insiders also point this out as the reason the two actresses have not been seen together in movies as the producers seem to know what is going on and do not want to create bad blood on their sets because the two of them will be at logger heads on who to play the lead if they are paired together.

NEWS: Nigeria Will Overcome Terrorism – Jonathan

Nigeria President Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday promised that the “evil machinations” of terrorists and their allies were not capable of distracting him from successfully implementing his administration’s transformation agenda.

He said he would continue to count on the support and prayers of Nigerians in his government’s bid to achieve peace, harmony, progress and prosperity in the country.

Jonathan said these in his Easter message to Nigerians made available to journalists by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati.

The President said although his administration had made notable progress in achieving sustained development, he would not rest on his oars.

He said, “My belief in our ability to overcome all retrogressive and divisive forces in our midst and build a strong, united and prosperous nation by turning our unique diversity into a source of strength remains unshaken and we will continue to work with all interest groups and stakeholders in the country to achieve peaceful, secure and politically stable conditions essential for rapid socio-economic development.

“In spite of the evil machinations of terrorists, criminals and their collaborators, our administration remains ardently focused on efforts to successfully execute the Federal Government’s Agenda for National Transformation and achieve sustained development.

“We have made notable advances in this regard. As a result of our efforts and those of previous administrations, the Nigeria economy is now the largest in Africa and the 26th largest in the world.

“But we cannot afford to rest on our oars. Much remains to be done and we will continue to count on the patriotic support of all Nigerians as we strive to achieve more inclusive economic growth, generate more national wealth and create more employment opportunities to meet the demands of our increasingly youthful population.”

He urged Nigerians, as they celebrate Easter, to reflect on the significance of its lessons of piety, obedience to higher authorities, self sacrifice for the good of others, redemption, salvation, deliverance, renewal and the ultimate triumph of good over evil.

According to the President, these lessons of Easter and other injunctions on brotherly love, peaceful co-existence, tolerance, honesty, humility, justice, equity and fairness to all without discrimination contained in the Gospels are of particular importance to Nigerians as they continue to contend with the challenges of nation-building and development.

He urged them to renew their faith and confidence in their ability as a people to overcome all obstacles, challenges and threats to national progress and well-being, including terrorism and other criminal attacks in some parts of the country.

Also, the Senate President, David Mark, his deputy Ike Ekweremadu and the Senator representing Kwara Central Senatorial District, Senator Bukola Saraki in their separate Easter messages on Saturday, canvassed team work to tackle insecurity in order to achieve peace and love in the country.

Mark in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Paul Mumeh, cautioned  against politicising the current insecurity in the north-eastern part of Nigeria.

Ekweremadu, whose statement was signed by his Special Adviser on media, and Publicity, Mr. Uche Anichukwu, called on Nigerians to imbibe the lessons of forgiveness and love inherent in Easter.

Saraki in a statement signed by his media aide, Bankole Omishore, congratulated all Christians as they celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

He said, “Beyond this celebration, let the message of selflessness and unconditional love as being preached and demonstrated by Jesus Christ, reflect in our lives particularly at this point when our nation is been faced with daunting challenges.”

INTERVIEW: I Am The King Of R&B, Not Banky W – Darey Art-Alade

Nigerian superstar singer and CEO Soul Musik, Darey Art Alade In a recent interview with Encomium magazine, Darey revealed his thoughts that he is the king of RnB music in Nigeria and not EME Banky W. When asked if he feels any competition between himself and Banky W knowing that they are both called Nigeria’s king of RnB, Darey replied by saying;

“There is only one king of RnB. I have never heard anybody being called king of RnB except me.
I have never heard anybody call him (Banky W) king of RnB except if you think he is one. But the truth is, there is only one king, and you know who the king is. If you doubt it, my new material will settle the scores. Although it has taken sometime, I am very happy the work is coming out soon”
he told the magazine.

Darey who owns a recording company, Soul Musik with talented artistes signed on it (Zaina & Mo Eazy). He also spoke on the increased rate of artiste/management face off and revealed plans of acquiring a radio station. On artiste/management problems encountered in the industry, Darey said;

“The truth of the matter is everybody has a role to play and they have a portion of the blame. The label invests something, I don’t want to say much. For every investment you want to make a return. This is where the artiste doesn’t understand. In the beginning, they gave you a house, a car, and you think you are talented, and come to think of it, you don’t even have anything in the market. Whatever they gave you was based on potential, the initial agreement that if I give you this, you will give me that in return. Some artistes don’t have agreement, everything is sealed at a bar. As you drink, you signed without realizing what you are signing. Some of them are illiterates, some pretend to know what the business is all about, but they don’t. Some of them get carried away by the glitz and glamour of it, signed without knowing what the agreement stipulates. When they default, they start blaming the label, saying all sorts of things. But most of us don’t find out what was the agreement before going to the press and write. On the other side, the label may have been obligated to do certain things but they did not do it and the artiste will complain. These are the issues” he said.

On how to resolve these issues, Darey said;

“I think both sides should have respect for agreement. There shouldn’t be issues if both sides respect agreement they made. For instance, when I left Questionmark, nobody heard that I fought anybody till tomorrow. Yes we had disagreement, it wasn’t a rosy ending but till date they are still my friends, we work together. So maturity is needed to handle such situation”.

Darey also plans to own a radio station.

“I will love to own a radio station. I have already started making inquiries and plans on that feasibility. I am a radio person, I have worked on radio, and it was really fun. Since then I felt it is good if I can achieve this by running a radio station. After all, it will provide jobs for people, encourage creativity and improve entertainment. I don’t know the format of the station yet but let me get the license first” he said.
