Alusa -Kenya1

Actor, Radio Drama Director and MC Alusa from Nairobi, Kenya, is married and has three children. His favourite food is ugali with chicken stew and traditional vegetables. His favourite book is TD Jakes’ He-Motions and he likes watching National Geographic, The Exes and Nigerian movies on TV. On the music front, he enjoys listening to Sauti-Sol, Mafikizolo, P.Square, Youssou N’Dour and Salif Keita. One of his favourite films, Training Day, features one of his favourite actors: Denzel Washington.

Describing himself as ‘ambitious, spiritual, out-spoken, generous and mysterious’, Alusa likes people who are ‘detailed’ and who have a good sense of humour, because he likes to laugh. He doesn’t enjoy people who ‘emit negative energy’.

He entered Big Brother Hotshots for the exposure, as well as the intrigue of living with total strangers in a closed environment and the desire to share his lifestyle with a huge audience. Alusa is looking forward to having the continent watching him: ‘I’m an artist, a performer, so I love attention. I’m not in the least bit intimidated, in fact, I’m thrilled’

Alusa lists Mombasa and his village of Kakamega as his favourite places in Kenya, because they’re both very exotic in their ways and rich culture. He says the best thing about Africa is the people. ‘Africans are both beautiful in form and diverse culture,’ he says. Outside of Africa, his favourite place is Brazil. ‘Rich culture, beautiful women, sweet samba music, festivals, food – I could go on and on,’ he says.

 

Ellah - Uganda1

Uganda

Ellah is a Sales Assistant with a BSc in Business Computing from Nsambya, Uganda.

She enjoys watching Reality shows like Real Housewives of Atlanta, New York and Orange County. Her favourite singers include India Arie, August Alsina, Beyonce, Rihanna and Sam Smith.

Her favourite place in Uganda is the Lake Bunyonyi Resort and she says the best thing about Africa is ‘the warmness of the people’. Outside of her home country, she says Cambodia is ‘a hidden gem and somewhat a free country’. Ellah has 12 brothers and sisters and says her Mom is her role model: ‘her strength and character captivate me’.

Ellah is most proud of having become Miss Uganda 2013/14 because ‘it was a stiff competition and a strong test for me’. She was inspired to enter Big Brother Hotshots because of the fact that ‘it unites Africa and also is a platform for me to advance’. She says she’s ‘super excited and is looking forward to being on the show.

She describes herself as ‘charismatic, bitchy, outspoken, loving and sophisticated’ and says that she’s ‘strong and determined’. She values ‘honesty, charisma and joyfulness’ in others, but dislikes ‘lies and fakeness’.      If she wins the grand prize, Ellah will buy cars for her mom and invest the rest in real estate.

 

Butterphly - Zimbabwe1

Zimbabwe

Butterphly
Age: 24

Butterphly is a Radio, Television Presenter and Producer from Harare. She lists her favourite foods as meat, pasta with cheese, black-eyed peas and eggs. Her favourite books include the Bible, The Firm, The Long Goodbye, and the Sherlock Holmes series. She likes to watch Chopped, 24, Intelligence and Big Brother Africa.

Butterphly entered Big Brother Hotshots because she’d always wanted to be part of a national sports team, but never got the chance. ‘Being on Big Brother Africa will allow me to take the opportunity to market myself and expand my brand’. She says she won’t use ‘backstabbing and cheating’ or immoral and unethical methods to get the prize. If she wins, he’ll send her sister, brother and kids to really good schools, start a chain of unique food, social and fashion hangout joints and take her mom shopping.

Describing herself as ‘unique, feisty, mysterious, fun-loving and witty’, Butterphly says that people are always shocked when they discover that he’s humble, compassionate and kind. He likes other people with a sense of humour, honour and truthfulness, and dislikes ‘dishonesty and people who pretend to like a person’.

Her mom is her role model: ‘she put her life on pause so ours could play. She’s the hardest working woman I know’. Butterphly says he draws influence from ‘all sorts of people’. ‘Ordinary, young, dead, legends – in everyone’s life story I try to extract important lessons like resilience, faith, strength etc. I learn as much as I can from the people I meet or read about,’ he says.

ABJCM ENT NEWS: NBC Bans “Shoki” by YBNL Artiste, Lil Kesh

This is a perfect case of “too little too late”. The highly unpopular regulatory body in Nigeria, NBC (National Broadcasting Commission) has placed a ban on YBNL artiste, Lil Kesh‘s smash single “Shoki“; arguably the hottest song in Nigeria right now.

The NTBB (Not To Be Broadcast) ban is nothing new in Nigerian music, as it’s been placed on several hit singles in the past. The news broke earlier today via popular Beat FM OAP, Toolz on twitter. She goes on to add that apparently, “Shoki” means “Quickie“. So, this must be their reason.

ABJCM INTERVIEW: They Get Endorsement Deals While They Sing Nonsense – Lord Of Ajasa

Nigeria indigenous rap music pioneer Lord Of Ajasa has let his feelings out or perhaps expresses himself in a recent interview with Punch Newspaper about his thoughts on the new generation of Nigerian musicians, and how they get endorsement deals.

Here is what he had to say about the respect he gets and the new generation of nigerian artists.

“I pioneered indigenous rap music and today it has become lucrative and fashionable. Yet, these young musicians shy away from that fact. They try to hide it. If I don’t blow my trumpet, nobody will do it. But I deserve an award, recognition and endorsement because a lot of people look up to me as their mentor.

Look at Eedris Abdulkareem and 9ice, for instance. I’m saying they should take care of the pioneers, but what impact have these new artistes really made in the society to deserve all the endorsements they are getting? I mean, they sing nonsense songs while we (pioneers) do evergreen and clean music. Yet they keep discouraging us. 2face is an exception I am okay with his brand of music, because his endorsements are well-deserved.”

ABJCM VIDEO: Runtown @iRuntown – Baby Answer

Shortly after the release of his latest single, “Baby Answer”, EricMany Entertainment’s poster boy, Runtown hits the streets with the video to the track.Directed by prolific cinematographer, Sesan, the video incorporates a series of pictures that tell a brief story of what happens when a young man walks up to a girl he fancies on the street. 

 From courtyard rock band scenes to beautiful roadside scenes, you’ve not seen anything like this video before.

ABJCM VIDEO: Snoovy – Won Jasi

Fast Rising Act “Ayobami hassan” popularly known as Snoovy releases the visuals to his single titled “Won Jasi” (they don’t understand) which has been topping radio chart and also disturbing the street.

His unique style of music has also found its way to the hearts of hip hop and afro pop lovers. Directed by Henry Karlmani. Watch & Enjoy.

ABJCM VIDEO: MC Galaxy Embarrassed Outside The Club On a Tour

Apparently MC Galaxy the ‘Sekem’ master was scheduled to perform at a club in Silver Spring, Maryland this past Saturday, September 13th, 2014, and somehow due to some disputes, his crew and the promoters of the event ended up getting into an altercation.

According to Rarolae.com where this video was originally published the promoters in question (T-Spotlite) were causing confusion, cursing and visibly upset.

There is talk about money not being paid, and the venue being empty etc, but things are not certain. What we do see in the video is MC Galaxy being dragged by his pants by someone back to the venue. Surprisingly, MC Galaxy though upset didn’t cause too much of a scene or try to fight.

We can talk all the talk but just watch the video.

 

ABVIDEO: Iyanya – Mr Oreo {B-T-S }

Triple MG frontman  Iyanya is set to drop the visuals to one of his mega hits off the “Evolution” album which features MMMG all stars. Mr Oreo has taken over social networks ever since the singer introduced the tune on instagram having fans doing a short performance of the track. Stemming from the popularity of the song, the “Kukere Master” is set to drop the video.

But first, Triple MG releases this B.T.S video to let us have a sneak pick of what to expect from this awesome tune. A lot of hard work is obviously put in place to make sure the video is a success. Kudos to Triple MG co-owner Ubi Franklin for a job well done and the lady’s man himself Iyanya.

ABJCM ENT NEWS: Korede Bello, Victoria Kimani & more at the 2014 Ping Awards

The invite clearly stated that Red Carpet starts at 6pm. Guess what, there was hardly anybody in sight at the time. Trust Nigerians with their African time mentality, the guests started turning up in trickles and after an hour later, not a handful of guests had even turned up. For those who could point out the face of the organizer, it was obvious that he was in body and mind disarray, his apologies really couldn’t hold a water jar as time was fast spent and barely nothing had happened. The stage was set in our very before while the technical team at a corner maneuvered with tools and wires and switches to produce sound.

Save for the Maryland traffic which held up more of the guests, you can imagine their shock when they arrived only to find that they were several minutes still early to the event. To a witness, all that hullabaloo and initial confusion wasn’t much of a welcoming sight.
Alas! Split minutes to 9pm after being ushered into the Banquet Hall and more lapsed rounds of waiting, the award show kicked off with a rendition of soul music classics from budding R&B crooner BYNO. He thrilled the guests with John Legend’s All of Me, Sam Smith’s Stay With Me and Bob Marley’s Redemption Song all on which he showed impressive vocals and made effortless transitions to his falsetto register. He closed the medley with his new single, Love Me. Following closely would be a rib cracking comedy session by MC Tush who succeeded in dousing the built tension from the waiting through jokes that ranged from skin bleaching to Ebola.

Like bad cheese with a foul stench, the apparent confusion reared it’s ugliness again. Pretty Mike of Club UNO and Chocolate City diva, Victoria Kimani had taken the stage to continue the award show as it’s comperes but the organizer came and gave them the boot kick off the stage so he could perform other timely duties that required the presence of the dignitaries. They would be the governorship aspirants from PDP & APC respectively, Engr. Adedeji Doherty and Senator Babatunde Gbadamosi; state secretary of PDP Lagos, Chief Wahab Owokoniran; states woman leader of PDP Lagos, Mrs Amina Odeje JP; Nigeria customs senior official, Hajiya Zakka and crowned prince of Enugu state, HRH Prince Ejike who were put on the spot for donations to the PNA Foundation as honorary awardees.

http://maxi1.tooxclusive.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/809304874793856118_489146306.jpg?a74419

Other performers for the night included; Doray & Mr 2Kay, Timix, Chemo & Adam Rush among others. Celebrity guests present at the event included Ketchup, Korede Bello, IK Ogbonna, Kiki Omeili (Lekki Wives), Adunni (Vixen), Meg Otanwa (October 1st movie), Alexx Ekubo and Melvin Oduah. The proper award session was critically rushed by reason of time constraint as most of it had been spent on addresses by the political dignitaries present. Regardless, worthy of mention would be Korede Bello’s award as the revolutionist in music, Mr 2Kay’s award as the next rated artiste and tooXclusive’s award as the entrepreneur revolution of the year sponsored by Sheraton.

Many of the guests had exited the Banquet Hall for a myriad reasons which came down majorly to disjoint communication amongst the crew, bad timing and disorganization which were all too evident in the dissipation of affairs during the award show. There was hardly a presence of the comperes to be felt as the organizer had hitherto hijacked the hosting business from them. In his moment, he openly showered the political dignitaries with wanton accolades leaving frowned expressions on the faces of other guests present. The essence of the awards didn’t live up to it’s place as the focus had shifted and eventually, got totally lost. Come, what happened to them red bottoms and superfly shades that were supposed to be given out? Oh! Photo-trick… how did I miss that one? The other thing that made sense would be Metro Taxi’s 50% off fare deal for anyone at the awards who desired a ride home.

Hosting an entertainment award really is no small feat but for PNA in their second season, they’ve managed to clean up a hot mess set-up for their third season (that’s if copious notes had been taken on the one too many flaws and flops and if they’ve not already shelved plans for a third run). Regardless, the organizers need to focus more attention on organizational planning and logistics as with team communication too. In summary, Ping awards 2014 was a tragic downward sell, forget all that razzmatazz of who showed up (and perhaps who didn’t). It’s appalling that the many faces of persons wearing the “crew” tag had brisk features a lot more promising than the turn out of the event. I choose to not believe that this was the best their synergy could come up with. There’s ample room for improvement if and only if some people would get off their dreamy high horses and join the rest of the team in revisiting the blue board.
