Wazobia FM’s electrifying presenter Omotunde Adebowale- David a.k.a Lolo1 alongside Rhythm FM’s ace presenter Anita Isedeh otherwise known as Omalicha and Tochukwu ‘Elajoe’ Nwosu, one of the unsung Nigerian hip-hop heads, are the hosts for the 5th edition of the yearly Nigerian Broadcasters Merit Awards (NBMA).

The Nigerian Broadcasters Merit Awards (NBMA), as the name implies, is an award ceremony organized to celebrate, honour, and appreciate past and current broadcasters, as well as those who have passed on; who have distinguished themselves as role models, mentors, and propagators of social change in society. These great people have had a memorable impact on their listeners and viewers over the years through their programmes, as they educate, inform, entertain, and promote peace.

Omalicha 2

NBMA, the pioneer of the prestigious awards for TV/Radio broadcasters and on-air personalities, holds on Saturday, November 15, 2014 at the Ballroom of Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Seasoned broadcaster, Femi Sowoolu, who is the NBMA’s patron, is expected to welcome all the invited guests, and on the wheels- of- steel is effervescent DJ Unbeatable of Rainbow 94.1FM.

Among the lined-up programmes to add glitz and glamour to the event to be hosted by the dynamic trio of Lolo1, Elajoe and Omalicha, includes a red carpet reception, dance drama, fashion exhibition by 3G stitches, command performances from shining music and comedy stars, and other side attractions. Cocktails, and the red carpet event starts 2pm and main event is slated for 4pm, prompt.

92 competitive categories are up for grabs for over 350 nominees for this year’s NBMA. We however regret that due to circumstances beyond our control the proposed SMS voting has been suspended for this year while the ongoing email and twitter voting system, which commenced a few weeks ago will be closed by midnight, on Thursday November 13th, 2014.

You do know that our hosts, Omalicha and Lolo1 are celebrity broadcasters. Omalicha, the Rhythm 93.7FM big girl won last year’s Best Radio Presenter while the bubbly Lolo1 of Wazobia 95.1FM floored others to emerge Outstanding Indigenous Radio Presenter in 2012. On his part, Elajoe who is a Producer, A & R and Events Consultant/Promoter was the first Nigerian producer to blend Afrobeat, Hip-Hop & Jazz on his rendition of Ayetoro’s 2003 classic “Revenge of the Flying Monkeys.”

10 THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW ABOUT FEMALE DJ FRIZZIE @DJFrizzie + ELOY AWARDS NOMINATION

IMG-20141016-WA002

She is one of Nigeria’s fastest rising female turntablist who is
steadily carving a strong niche for herself in male dominated field
with every step she takes in her career. Within a short period of
time, Dj Frizzie is turning into a household name in the entertainment
circle and has recently earned herself a couple of deals which include
becoming Mr.2Kay’s official, plus VJ for newest television station in
the country, CoolTv. Obviously for those who have been hearing the
buzz about her, there are certain things you’d like to know about her.
See the 10 things you never knew about DJ Frizzie below.

DCS_3699

1. Her full name is Frances Tamunonengiyeofori (Onengiye, For Short)
Higgwe and she’s from Kalabari in Rivers State, Nigeria.

2) She is a graduate of the university of Port-Harcourt from the
department of Environmental engineering and she is presently doing her
Msc in Water & Environmental Management in the United Kingdom.

3.  Dj Frizzie has just recently been nominated for one of the
categories of the ELOY (Exquisite Ladies Of The Year) Awards 2014.

4. Her spinning skills and knack for excellence has seen her been
featured on MTVBASE Official Club Chart occasionally, and become
Mr.2Kay’s official DJ, plus VJ for newest television station in the
country, Cool Tv.

5. DJ Frizzie is so in touch with her roots and environment around her
that she sets aside time for some charity work and was involved in
‘THE RELIEF ARK ON THE #REACHKIDS PROJECT’ for an orphanage home in
Port Harcourt and also worked with ‘IYANYA FOUNDATION IN COLLABORATION
WITH CHARITY LOUNGE FOR THE #THENATURALCHILD EDITION FOR DOWN SYNDROME
CHILDREN’.

6. You guys should be a little shocked to know that the Port Harcourt
artiste Frank D’Nero (Cure my craze Crooner) is her half-brother.

7. She would be releasing her first music collaboration in the month
of November 2014, in which she features Tha Suspect and Mr 2kay.

8. As a DJ, one would think, it’s always party, party, party. But on
the contrary, Frizzie loves her sleep and some “Me” time. Her Idea of
a quiet time is She, her PC, some food (by the way, she loves food)
and some good piece of movie.

9. She’s the first child and the only daughter, and got an architect
for a younger brother. Their Mum must be so proud.

10. And the Last Big One, Dj Frizzie had always wanted to be a pop
star and was just Frizzie at that time. Even released 2 singles, – My
Heart & Don’t Holla at me boy, a remix to Wizkid’s “Holla at me”
before she decided to chase a career as a Disc Jockey first, though
not giving up as a music artiste yet. Well thank God for the change of
name cause there’s a “rapper” somewhere with the name Frizzie too.

BREAKING NEWS: Legendary Fashion Designer Oscar de la Renta Dies at 82

Oscar de la Renta, a renowned American fashion designer famed for his glamorous red-carpet gowns and smart suits for ladies who lunch, died Monday evening at the age of 82, a spokeswoman for his fashion house confirmed.

Mr. de la Renta died just a few weeks after he named a new designer to replace him at his eponymous brand.

Possibly the U.S.’s most noted fashion designer, Mr. de la Renta managed to stay relevant for more than six decades. Even in his final days, he was the go-to designer for celebrity brides and socialites who flocked to his rich, ever-feminine designs, which radiated wealth and power. He dressed Amal Alamuddin in September for her wedding to George Clooney.

First lady Michelle Obama   recently wore one of his dresses, after having seemed to snub him for years. Mr. de la Renta, designer of countless looks for previous first ladies from Betty Ford to Laura Bush, had openly chafed at the seeming oversight, which caused speculation that Mrs. Obama preferred emerging designers.

WSJ’s Christina Binkley looks back at fashion designer Oscar de la Renta’s legacy and influence on Lunch Break with Tanya Rivero. Photo: AP

The response to the designer’s death in the fashion industry was immediate, as he had served as a father to American fashion. The Savannah College of Art and Design said it would fly flags at half-staff, according to a spokesman.

During Paris Fashion Week in September, the house of de la Renta announced that Peter Copping, designer of Nina Ricci, will take the design reins.

Mr. de la Renta was born in the Dominican Republic, then got his start in the 1950s as an assistant to Spanish designer Cristóbal Balenciaga. Mr. Balenciaga was noted for his daring approach to volume, which certainly trained Mr. de la Renta’s eye for proportion. But the American designer—who later designed for Lanvin and Balmain—kept versatility as his mark. He designed for every era’s jet set in his lifetime—from Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Babe Paley and Zsa Zsa Gabor  , to Beyoncé, Sarah Jessica Parker   and Penélope Cruz.

His collections in recent years flew from florals to geometric prints, and from voluminous gowns to body-conscious day looks and suits suitable for chairwomen of the board—as though he was suggesting that there was no design feat he couldn’t accomplish.
