I can’t really say why but actress Eniola Badmus sure loves backing guys, now it is Davido’s turn. lol!
Aye was originally Runtown’s song. Davido bought it off him and paid him a handsome 2.5m for it as well as featured in Gallardo.
The line, His favorite artist na Davido was formerly his favorite song na Gallardo.
Ot’s also very obvious that though the song has a Yoruba feel. Beyond “A e” or “Aye”, the song is not Yoruba in any way.
It’s a win-win though, something we like about Omo Baba Olowo. Unlike Wizkid, whose tracks all sound the same.
YOu will recall that Gobe was also bought from an artist, though the guy’s name has since disappeared into obscurity.
The Conference of Nigerian Political Parties has condemned the assault on Justice John Adeyeye of the Ekiti State High Court in Ado-Ekiti on Sept. 25 during the inaugural sitting of the state Election Tribunal. The condemnation was contained in a letter by the conference to the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mariam Aloma Mukhtar, signed by Mr Osita Okechukwu, CNPP National Publicity Secretary in Abuja on Sunday.
The conference, in the statement, condemned the “tragic assault on the temple of justice” in Ekiti State.
It called on the CJN and Chairman of the Nigeria Judicial Council to, as a matter of urgent national importance, relocate the two courts to Abuja, for speedy dispensation of justice.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the Jonathan Administration of seeking to negotiate the timing of the release of the Chibok girls to create a maximum public relations boost for itself, rather than out of a genuine concern for the girls who are now in their sixth month in captivity.
In a statement issued in London on Sunday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said the clearest evidence of the government’s manipulation of the girls’ release came during President Goodluck Jonathan’s recent visit to New York to attend the UN General Assembly.
”Apparently assured, somehow, that the girls were about to be released, the Administration had set up an elaborate publicity event in New York, rented the necessary crowd and booked back-to-back interviews with the international media to enable the President to luxuriate in the girls’ release. This event was billed for the five-star Pierre Hotel in Manhattan, close to the UN Headquarters.
”Nigerians will remember that on 23 Sept., the military announced, on Twitter, the imminent release of the girls, only to retract the statement shortly thereafter. In the intervening period, thousands of ‘supporters’ of the President had gathered at the Pierre Hotel to welcome the President after the release of the girls, while media interviews had been booked for him…
”Such an occasion required prior organisation, and therefore prior knowledge by both the government and attendees of the timing of any release of the girls. This whole episode was timed to also coincide with President Jonathan’s speech to the UN General Assembly on the following day – Sept. 24th – and to secure maximum advantage for the government. Somehow, the whole process collapsed like a pack of cards, to the chagrin of those seeking to exploit the innocent girls for political advantage,” it said.
APC condemned the shameless politicization of the plight of the Chibok girls, saying since the incompetence of the Jonathan Administration led to the abduction of the girls in the first instance, it must not seek to make political capital out of their release.
”What should be paramount is securing the release of the girls as soon as possible, not securing their release to fit with a schedule that benefits Goodluck Jonathan politically. For the girls, their parents and indeed all good people of Nigeria, this abduction saga has been a nightmare. It is time for it to end,” the party said.
It said the same Jonathan Administration that rebuffed appeals from well-meaning Nigerians to negotiate the release of the girls in their early days in captivity has suddenly swung into feverish action, sending its cronies to negotiate with the abductors and even expressing the readiness to swap the Boko Haram commanders for the girls.
”We believe the government should do whatever it takes to secure the safe release of the girls. We believe nothing is too much to do to get the girls back home safely and bring the much-needed relief to their parents and families. But we suspect the government’s sudden efforts, which is undoubtedly aimed at giving a boost to President Jonathan’s candidacy for next year’s presidential election.
”This is most unconscionable, most exploitative and blatantly shameless. It confirms what we have been saying all along that the Jonathan Administration knows more about the Boko Haram insurgency than it has admitted, and that the Administration is exploiting the insurgency for the President’s re-election. Decent Nigerians are undoubtedly scandalized at this exploitative and deceitful behaviour of their government, and it must stop forthwith,” APC said.
The famous 80,000-capacity stadium, home of both Milan clubs, was opened in 1926 and later named in honour of Giuseppe Meazza.
Berlusconi said it was time for her club to move forward, though, but is unsure whether it will be possible.
“San Siro is a marvellous stadium, where the history and the apex of Milan and Inter was reached, but today it isn’t enough anymore,” Berlusconi told Rai 1.
“Stadiums have to provide different services and infrastructure to be open seven days a week, not just on match day.
“Now in Italy there are so many difficulties. There’s little economic support from the state, the region or the council.”
Berlusconi said the nation’s football was “a microcosm of what is happening in the country in general, that of a country that does not want to renew itself.”

Being an ex-international footballer is an advantage to get people’s attention but it seemed like people were more interested in taking his pics than listening to the word of God.
