Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde calls out Osinbanjo over police brutality

Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has called out the Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osibanjo over the recent brutality being experienced by youths from men of the Nigerian Police Force.

The award-winning actress made this known via her Instagram stories on Sunday, April 14, 2019. She expressed shock over the Vice President’s silence over the way and manner SARS has turned the country into a death trap.

“@profosibanjo it is shocking that Nigeria has turned into a death trap under your watch and you are silent!!! You are silent!!!!! At a time like this under your leadership,” she wrote.

Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde is the latest celebrity to join the endless list of celebs who have called out the Special Anti-Robbery Squad over their highhandedness and brutality of innocent young Nigerians. 



3 talking points from Episode 1 of Game of Thrones Season 8

Game of Thrones is back! After 595 days of waiting, the world’s biggest TV show is here.

The first episode of season 8 has a lot of talking points. No, the full-blown war has not yet come but this season’s opener gives us hints of future power struggles and scores that will be settled.

Here are 3 talking points from episode 1.

Warning! Spoiler ahead.

1. Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen

Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen romance might soon be over – Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen start off from where they left off- incestual sex. While Targaryen’s advisers are plotting on a lasting union with her and Jon Snow, Sam Tarly has told his best friend that he is the true heir to the Iron Throne.

Jon Snow is now confused. We don’t know what he will do with this piece of information.

2. Sansa Stark and the Dragon Queen

Sansa Stark is not a fan of the Dragon Queen – The North might be cold but Sansa Stark’s chilly greeting towards Daenerys Targaryen was way colder.

Sansa Stark is not the innocent young lady we saw in season 1. Now she is more wary of outsiders and more protective of her family. It is understandable that she is not Daenerys Targaryen’s biggest cheerleader.

The Lady of Winterfell not only distrusts the Dragon Queen but hates the fact Jon Snow bent the knee.

3. Jamie Lannister meets Bran Stark

Jamie Lannister meets the Bran Stark/Three-Eyed Raven – Remember GOT’s first shocking scene? If you have followed the series from the first day, you would know the history between these two characters.


Tons of events have happened since that push from the tower but as Game of Thrones is in its final weeks, Jamie Lannister and Bran Stark/Three-Eyed Raven are most likely to deal with their unfinished business.




Burna Boy delivers colorful performance at Coachella 2019

At 12:15 am WAT on April 15, 2019, Nigerian artist, Burna Boy, performed at the Coachella Valley and Arts Music Festival 2019 that began on the night of April 12, 2019, and ended Sunday, April 14, 2019 (PDT).

Like Eazi, who was also subject to a YouTube artist spotlight, Burna was backed up by a live band and a selection of male and female dancers. He was also dressed in a yellow multicolored, customizable Burberry trench coat and white trousers, presumably styled by his sister, Romani Ogulu.

While on stage, Burna performed a selection of smash hits like, ‘Ye,’ ‘Dangote,’ ‘Tonight,’ ‘Killin Dem,’ ‘Soke,’On The Low,’ and others. During the performance of ‘Killin Dem,’ he thrilled the crowd with some impressive Zanku moves.

Tiwa Savage spoils herself with a customised car [Photo]

Celebrities are known for buying really expensive cars but when one of them decides to buy a customised car like the one Tiwa Savage just got for herself then it is big news.

The music star took to her Instagram stories on Thursday, April 4, 2019, where she shared a photo and series of videos of the latest addition to her garage. 

Even though it is not clear what brand of car she got, everything about the ride shows Tiwa Savage has exquisite taste in automobiles. A close look at the car gives you the feeling that this might be a huge bus or SUV.


Its seats are customised with Tiwa Savage’s name which goes to show how much must have been spent in putting this yet to be identified vehicle together. We can’t wait to see ‘Mama Jam Jam’ cruise around town in her ride.

‘Merry Men’ producer, AY Makun has explained that access to funds remains the biggest challenge facing Nollywood practitioners.

The major challenge is access to funds. We still don’t have access to funds but people who are doing what they are doing in Nollywood now are individuals who strongly believe in moving Nollywood forward and at the same time trying to get involved in the business to make money for themselves,” he said.

Continuing, AY said, “Access to funding is a major challenge, the more we have people who believe in the industry getting involved in terms of sponsorship, participation and investment, trust me, we would be giving Hollywood a pretty good run for their money. But for now, that is the major challenge but so far so good, if I want to rate Nollywood, I would be doing that from the point of view of the individuals, who are in there doing what they know how to do best. We are there, we are climbing but it can be better.”

How I source funding for my movies – AY

AY has revealed how he sources funding for his movies to Pulse. He said explained that he tries to get one or two investors to fund some of his movies.

He said, “I play with my own funds and once or twice, try to get one or two investors involved, I mean not within the corporate circle but individuals who also believe in the business and we just rock and roll. It could be better if we have the support of either the government or corporate sector, it’s just the question of belief and understanding to close up the gaps.

Nollywood isn’t too big for Hollywood consultants – AY

The ‘30 days in Atlanta’ star further said that the government needs to get involved in taking Nollywood to the next level.

AY told Pulse in an exclusive chat that movie making is good for his brand as an entertainer and he would be doing more in 2019.

AY said his projections for the calendar year 2019 include making another film because filmmaking has been good to his brand.

Lami Phillips Recounts Struggles With Her Appearance As A Kid

Nigerian singer, Lami Phillips passed through a childhood that threatened her self lov because she struggled with her looks as a child.

She narrates how knowing she was not the prettiest posed a very big threat to the love she would have had for herself.

According to her, she got to know from a young age that she was not the prettiest family member. She added that her parent’s friends sometimes made statements about how black she was or why she looked like a boy. Some even wondered why she was dark skinned like her father compared to her mother’s light complexion.

She wrote: “Yeah.. that’s me.. the darkest person in the picture. I grew up “knowing” that I wasn’t the prettiest. My parents friends would joke “blacky”.. or ask me in Yoruba “ki lo de to se jo okunrin bayi “ ( why do you look so much like a boy). I was told I was short and thick ( it sounds worse in Yoruba).. I was also asked why i looked like my dad.

Why wasn’t I light skinned like my mother? So many questions… all somehow directed at making me subconsciously question the way I looked. Over time.. I decided to ignore or compartmentalize those insecurities. I ignored the fact that I was somewhat unrecognizable in photographs or less favored for certain opportunities. I was never called pretty as much as I can remember. I convinced myself that I was ordinary.

Thank God for my sense of humour because I allowed it all dust off my shoulders by joking about it. So as a teenager when a boy said he liked me .. I wouldn’t believe it. Why would he like me when there are others prettier than me? Little did I know that I was far from ordinary. Little did they know.. that I was beautiful… TO UNDERSTAND THE FRUIT WE MUST EXAMINE THE ROOT. Excuse me as I pursue PURPOSE. (Most people won’t understand the “purpose” or meaning of this post/caption.. and that’s ok too)”
