Banky wife , Adesua ex-lover photo surfaces

Nollywood actor Kunle Remi is angry about people referring to him as Adesua’s Ex, instead of calling him by his name.

A very upset Kunle who has been trying to control himself not to bust out over this has finally spoken this morning. Taking to IG, Kunle wrote;

MY NAME IS KUNLE REMI and Not ADESUA’s Ex.

Silence,they say is Golden.
I have been silent, but some people have taken this as an invitation to take the piss!! I have chosen my words and thought this action through, so read carefully, yes, pay attention I will only say this once.

I am not a bitter person neither am I a sadist. Continue…

‘If’ you know me, (if you don’t, ask about me from those that do) you would know I am a very positive and I radiate good vibes only, I am not here for any form of negativity whatsoever.

My name has been used inappropriately, and it is time I set the record straight.

I intentionally waited till after the festive of the beautiful wedding ceremony had come to a natural halt out of respect for the couple.

I have not till this present day said to any blogger, or mentioned on any social media platform, or granted any interview admitting or confirming that I was ever in a relationship with the former Miss Adesua Etomi who as well all know tied the knot over the past weekend, neither do I recall her doing the same.

Yet some jobless people cooked up stories and sold it to other jobless people and then jobless readers and commentators believed it and hence the rumors started circulating with no proof other than pictures of us on a Movie set titled (FALLING. A great film by the way, It’s on Netflix if you haven’t seen it.). Contrary to the opinion of people who feel theirs matters, I don’t have to congratulate the beautiful couple publicly to prove anything. Some of us would rather do our things privately. You CAN’T believe all you see on social media (some people will still not understand).

Take for example ; Recently I posted a picture of my Beautiful Nephew on my Instagram and as expected, rumors started again without any confirmation that I have a baby. (Quote me) I never confirmed to anyone that he is My Son. So there you go!!. Not all you see or read on social media is the gospel truth.

Having said that this is my advice to those this may concern; Just for your sanity try to be sure about the rumors and gist before you tongue lash people or judge people.

Sometimes Not every one is strong enough to handle it.

RUSSIA FIFA WORLD CUP 2018 DRAW: Teams Are Scared Of Drawing Super Eagles

Eguavoen: Top World Cup Teams Are Scared Of Drawing Super EaglesFriday 1st December 2017, all attention will be at Moscow, Russia where FIFA World Cup draw will take place.

Former Nigeria coach Austin Eguavoen has revealed that big countries are scared of the Super Eagles ahead of the FIFA World Cup draw.

Eguavoen who led the Super Eagles to the 2006 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt said the exploits of Nigeria during the qualifiers have reawakened interest in the coach Gernot Rohr-led team.

Nigeria finished the qualifiers unbeaten and was the first African country to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia after their 1-0 win over Chipolopolo of Zambia in Uyo in October.

“I think we should just focus on a good draw because I have read many reports suggesting that Nigeria is likely to play some big names and that has caused a kind of panic to some people. But I want to tell you today that some of these big name teams are scared of the Super Eagles,” Eguavoen, who represented Nigeria at the country’s first World Cup in 1994, told Completesportsnigeria.com.

“Being the first African country to qualify for the World Cup and playing all the qualifying matches without a single defeat showed that we have a good team and that has reawakened the interest of other countries in Nigeria.

“As I speak with you, I am sure some coaches will be saying they don’t want to play Nigeria in the first round but as a coach, I believe preparation is key to any opponent you want to play.

“The boys and the coaches need the best of support they can get from the NFF, government, journalists and supporters.
“My prayer is for the Super Eagles to be in the group that will be easy for them to qualify.”

Sound Sultan turns mumu at SPANFEST 2017

Stand Up for Pasuma at 50!

Image result for pasumaFuji music might not be everybody’s cup of tea but there’s an artiste who certainly is: his name is Wasiu Alabi Pasuma. For the better part of three decades, he has been a constant feature on the Nigerian music scene – which is strange; unlikely even for a Fuji act.

By its nature, Fuji is specific to Yoruba people. Its origination from were, a type of indigenous Yoruba music, meant that most of the practitioners were from that tribe.

Despite the iconic status of the two biggest stars of the genre – Chief Sikiru Ayinde Barrister and KWAM1 – whose careers attracted money bags and transcended the small beginnings that they started from, no Fuji artiste has successfully broken out of the confines of language and ethnicity. None except Pasuma Wonder.

Since his breakout album Orobokibo in 1995, his desire to be seen as a ‘yuppie’ has been obvious for everyone to see.

Even though his music stayed true to its roots in sound (heavy percussion) and street lifestyle that he lived and his fans want, Pasuma always had his eyes on the seemingly more glamorous life that Nigerian hip-hop artistes lived.

Where the older Barrister and Wasiu wore agbadas and outfits not in fad, Pasuma dressed like a ‘hip-hop’ star: denim jackets, Tommy Hilfiger shirts, baggy jeans, Kangol caps and Heavy style glasses. It was no mistake that he gave himself the moniker ‘African Puff Daddy.’ He struck a chord with the younger generation. Even if you didn’t know any Pasuma music, you certainly recognised him as the Fuji musician who did not seem like the other Fuji musicians.

He would soon go on to collaborate with the new faces of urban Nigerian music at the turn of the century, The Remedies. With his trendy looks and ease which he casually name dropped fashion brands familiar to hip-hop listeners (Versace, Armani and the short-lived Kesse Jabari) it was not long at all before he became a visible part of the nascent urban Nigerian music that was gaining traction.

Again like a true pop star, he has ventured into film, appearing on several Yoruba movies. Perhaps as a testament to his mainstream appeal, he is reported to have dated a number of actresses from that industry – Ayo Adesanya, Bisi Ibidapo-Obe and SheBaby are just a handful of names he’s been mentioned with.

His love for hip-hop was pushed to the fore in 2015 when he released a hip-hop album. My World featured Tiwa SavageOritsefemiPhynoTerry G and Olamide. One might laugh at Pasuma’s attempts to spit hip-hop bars but his impact on hip-hop is no laughing matter.

His influence on the careers of Olamide in particular is glaring. The tone of Olamide ‘street’ movement is not far removed from the street nature of Pasuma’s own following. It has had a ripple effect so resounding that it is impossible to ignore: when you see Olamide being featured by M.I Abaga: a rapper who is not even Yoruba, credit ought to be given to Pasuma for being a universally recognised figure, not bound by his genre. When Reminisce laces his hip-hop rhymes with Fuji slang (Gbera for example), it’s a nod to ‘Popsie Aaliyah’.

Pasuma has introduced Fuji music to new audiences more than any other singer in his category. He’s executed more cross-genre collaborations than any other, and he’s one of the very few from that sector who remain consistent and relevant for decades. To put it simply: it’s very likely he’s the Fuji artiste other Fuji artistes want to be like.
