Why Davido is in another trouble

Image result for davidoThis is not best of time for Afro Pop and Nigeria Singer, David ‘Davido’ Adeleke. Aftermath Tagbo controversial death, popular musician, Davido (David Adeleke) is in big trouble. He did not show up for a show on September 1st, 2017 in Colorado, USA which all the tickets were sold out. The promoters of the show have vowed to fight the musician as he had been fully paid.
But, the musician went online on September 2 to beg his fans. In a snap chat message he said that….“Damn they almost Dammy Kraned me smh! Can’t make the show in Colorado tonight! We were at the airport for five hours. I’m so sorry! It was out of our hands and there was nothing we could do. I will do all I can to make it up to you guys… God bless,”
However, the promoters, BME disclosed that Davido is a liar and three flights had been booked for Davido but he failed to honour any of them, under the guise that he was doing a photo shoot, while he was actually partying.
We attempted to book a fourth flight for Davido but Davido failed to accept the fourth flight arrangement, stating that he wanted a direct flight into Denver. We could not get him a direct flight to Denver, as there were none; all that was available was connecting flights. Davido, who bluntly refused to make his flight three times, then posted on his snapchat that he was not going to make it to Colorado! We don’t owe Davido. He breached his contract!”

NBC Bans Songs by Olamide, Davido, 9ice

The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has banned five songs by major Nigerian musicians — Olamide, Davido and 9ice — having considered them offensive for broadcast.
The banned songs are Olamide’s “Wo” and “Wavy Level”, Davido’s “Fall” and “If (Remix)”, and 9ice’s “Living Things”.Image result for olamide picture

The corporation released the list Tuesday, saying it banned the five songs from being aired across the Nigerian airwaves, reported online news medium, Premium Times.
The Federal Ministry of Health had in a tweet on Friday, said the video to Olamide’s “Wo” violated the Tobacco Control Act.

The 28-year-old rapper, who is signed to his own record label, YBNL, had returned to Ladi Lak in Bariga where he was raised to shoot the video of his latest single.
“This is our position: the video contravenes the Act. Innocently or otherwise, Tobacco promotion advertising sponsorship is banned in all forms,” the NBC said.Image result for davido pictures 2017

It could not immediately be ascertained why the songs of the two other musicians were banned.

This is not the first time that an Olamide song will be banned by the regulatory agency.
In 2016, just a few months after the ban of one of his songs, “Shakiti Bobo,” NBC also banned “Don’t Stop”, a track from Olamide’s fifth studio album, Eyan Mayweather, for its vulgar lyrics.

Defending the decision at the time, the NBC said the song was banned from being played on the airwaves for its “obscenity, being indecent, vulgar language, lewd and profane expressions”.
Rapper Falz had also in June, criticised Nigerian musicians who glamourise fraud with their lyrics, a criticism fans took to be directed at 9ice for “Living Things”.

The actor and rapper stated that the recent trend of hailing internet fraudsters in music was not helping future generations, as young people were beginning to see this as a normal way of life.
He recalled the personal experience of the challenges faced by Nigerians in other countries as a result of cybercrime.Image result for 9ice pictures 2017

Politics: Hussain battles for Davido uncle’s Osun West senatorial ticket

Late Senator  Isiaka Adeleke  who was uncle to talented Nigeria song writer, singer and performer, David Adeleke also known as Davido died recently. All Progressives Congress (APC) the political party Adeleke came out from has nominated Senator Mudasiru Hussein to contest the party’s primaries for Osun West Senatorial District’s seat today in order to occupy the vacuum.

If he wins the primaries and the main election coming up next month , he will replace late Adeleke in Abuja. 

However, the National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday cleared Senator Mudasiru Hussein to contest the party’s primaries for Osun West Senatorial District’s seat today.
This followed the meeting of the NWC in Abuja, which reviewed the decision of the Appeal Panel, dismissing Hussein’s appeal on Sunday.
By the regulation of the party, the decision of the NWC is final.
“Therefore, delegates for the APC West Senatorial District’s primaries are to proceed to the designated centre for the exercise on Tuesday (today),” the NWC said last night.

The Appeal Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Osun West Senatorial District’s July 8 by-election has upheld the disqualification of Senator Mudashiru Hussain by the party’s five-man Election/Screening Committee.

On Sunday, the committee, led by Zamfara State House of Assembly Speaker Sanusi Rikiji, said Hussain was disqualified because he failed to tender his resignation letter as a serving commissioner within 30 days before the expression of his interest to contest for the senatorial seat.

Hussain challenged the panel’s decision at the party’s Appeal Committee but failed to stop his disqualification.

The Appeal Committee, led by Abdullahi Bello, noted that after going through the report of the Election/Screening Committee, “it did not find it difficult to assume the following questions:

  • “Whether the petitioner (Hussain) resigned within 30 days, as envisaged by law;
  • “Whether the petitioner’s resignation letter, as attached during the defence of his letter dated June 6, complied with the 30 days, as required by law, and
  • “Whether the Screening Committee was right by disqualifying the petitioner, based on his status as an appointed serving commissioner in Osun State.”

According to the Appeal Committee, issues during the screening bordered on law and the provision of the constitution.

It said failure of this was weighty and cannot be dismissed.

The committee said: “During the petitioner’s appearance before this committee, he confessed that his nomination form did not satisfy the full requirements of a legal document which could stand him for election.

“An objective view of the petitioner’s nomination form for his primary election was not duly sworn to before a Magistrate or a Notary Public and his failure to do this constitutes an incurable defect.

“The purpose for which a party’s nomination form is procured is to be seen to comply with guidelines and rules of engagement. Thus, it is our view that all its contents must be complied with.

“If the makers of the nomination form believe that the last paragraph of the form of the petitioner is of no value or of consequence, such provision will not have been provided therein. Thus, the failure of the petitioner to submit his nomination form for the purpose of certification and oath before a Magistrate or a Notary Public is fatal to his cause.

“We, therefore, hold that even if the petitioner is not a public officer, as canvassed by him, his resignation letter should have been necessary. Therefore, having resigned on June 6 fell short of the 30 days’ requirements of the law.

“Upon the above considerations, the appeal for reconsideration and reversal as presented by Senator Mudashiru Hussain lack merit and is hereby dismissed. Consequently, the disqualification of Senator Mudsshiru Hussain by the five-man Election/Screening Committee for the Osun West Senatorial District primary election of the APC is hereby upheld.”

Also, the primary election to choose a flagbearer of the APC for the July 8 by-election for Osun West Senatorial seat scheduled to hold yesterday was postponed till today.

A three-man Appeal Team, led by a former deputy governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Abdullahi Bello, on Sunday dismissed an appeal filed by Hussain, one of the two aspirants for the seat.

The chairman of the APC, Prince Gboyega Famodun, urged the party’s delegates from the 10 local government areas of the district to remain calm and prepare for the primary election.
