- Minister of state for Education, Nyesom Wike, has declared that the issue of dichotomy between HND and Degree holders will be resolved in no distant time as President Goodluck Jonathan has set up a committee headed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Senator Pius Anyim to address the challenge. Addressing chairmen of Governing Councils of
The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP), on Wednesday, said it had concluded plans to stage a nationwide protest over what it described as government’s insensitivity to its lingering strike. The National President of the union, Dr Chibuzo Asomugha, told newsmen in Abuja that the protest would take place on April 29. This is coming on the heels of Kebbi State chapter of the union’s decision on Tuesday to call off the 10-month old strike. Asomugha said

between the Okoye brothers. I didn't say they'd
split, I only asked a question based on all the
things I've been hearing and Jude Okoye's
tweet. When asked yesterday, P-Square's
publicist, Bayo Adetu, said the report is
'baseless and untrue'. Unfortunately, it is not!
It's either Bayo is clueless as to what is
happening in the Okoye household at the
moment or he thinks the best thing to do for
now is to deny that there's anything going on.
I wrote that the twin brothers Peter and Paul
engaged in physical combat on Wednesday. If
this was false, Peter is a social media person, he
would have immediately denied it. He didn't!
Unfortunately P-Square fans, things are even
worse than I reported yesterday. According to
my findings, Peter Okoye wants out of P-Square
and they have even gone as far as inviting a
lawyer to divide their fortune. Continue...
Now, let me make this clear. This report is
based on what's been happening with the
brothers up until right now Saturday April 19th.
I don't know what will happen tomorrow, next
week or next year but as of right now, Peter
Okoye doesn't want anything to do with P-
Square. I'm still hoping and many others are,
that they will resolve their issues and realize
that splitting will do no one good. So hopefully,
they will resolve their issues. But I will still go
ahead and tell you guys what's happening with
the brothers as of now.
First, Peter Okoye has moved out of Squareville
mansion in Omole where he lived with his
brothers for years and now lives in Lekki Phase
1 with his wife Lola Omotayo and their children.
An industry person I spoke with, who knows
what's been going on, told me this;
"Yes they fought this week. Peter even left a
mark on Paul's left eye. But the fight wasn't
during rehearsal, which rehearsal? Peter has
refused to do anything P-Square for weeks
now. Forget that he was at his brother's
wedding, things are not good between them
right now. They were even invited to perform
at president Jonathan's wedding but they
didn't go. Peter wants out. He said Paul and
Jude are sidelining him. That if they push out
200 songs, 199 would be songs Paul did. That
people are now calling him a dancer in P-
Square. Peter is really angry. He's even the
cool and friendly one between the brothers
but he is not himself right now. And then he
accused his brother Jude of disrespecting his
wife. Peter and Jude haven't spoken in weeks.
Peter said Jude has been disrespecting Lola for
years and he was done tolerating the BS. In
fact Peter said that not only is Lola older than
Jude, but that she's also pregnant and Jude
was upsetting a pregnant woman. If you
notice Jude didn't attend their wedding last
year despite the fact that he was in Nigeria.
Jude asked Peter why he didn't marry Lola
when their mother was alive. Jude said it's his
wife that is pushing him and they will need to
pray for him. In fact nobody in the Okoye
family likes Lola and they didn't support the
marriage. The brothers are really angry at
each other. The police is even involved. This
week, either the commissioner of police or
someone from his office visited their house.
The worst part is that they have invited lawyer
to come and share property o. They want to
share everything. The lawyer was at their
house I think on Thursday. Peter said no more
P-Square joint ventures. You know they own
everything together, including a house in
Omole, Parkview and Atlanta. Except
something is done fast P-Square is about to be
finished. But I know that people have been
intervening and begging them to reconsider,
that they are the biggest musical duo in
Africa. Nobody will benefit if they split. The
power to make money is in their togetherness.
It is Jude people are begging to keep the
brothers together, but after what he tweeted
yesterday, it may truly be over for P-Square.
Jude has really tried for his brothers, for him to
give up may mean it's over for them.
He practically put his entire life on hold for his
brothers. Even sold his first car to shoot their
first video but all that is about go come to an
end like he tweeted. The only thing that can
save the situation is if by a miracle Jude and
Lola settle their differences but I don't see
Oh dear. Hopefully, these boys will find each
other again. They are brothers, they have to.
Long live P-Square! May they never break up.
he's out of control when it comes to handling
his professional career, booking shows without
his label and his management, refusing to take
advice and honor agreements with them,
refusing to give them their share of the
proceeds, and basically carrying on like he's the
only one who has invested time and effort in his
career, are just some of the behaviors being
exhibited by this artist who is unarguably in his
Things however came to a head yesterday when
it was announced that he had fired his manager
of two years, Godwin Tom.
9jaLife can authoritatively reveal why Godwin
was fired and how.
A highly reliable source close to both parties
tells us the reason why the artiste and manager
parted ways on such a sour note is because of
MONEY! Our sources tell us that Wizkid
allegedly did not want to pay Godwin what he
As his manager, Godwin is entitled to a
percentage of any of his artiste's earnings (from
shows, endorsements, appearances, whatever),
but some show organizers would pay Wizkid
directly and he would never give Godwin his
cut. Apparently this had happened a number of
times and Godwin continued to patiently hope
for the best…until Saturday 12th April which is
when things fells apart for Godwin and Wiz!
Godwin sent Wizkid (saved as AB (Ayodeji
Balogun, Wizkid's govt name on his phone) a
Yo Wiz following our conversation about the
party today. I think it's best we have an
understand [sic] about this. You were paid for
this gig and have blatantly refused to pay me. I
will therefore not be working today. I always do
all to ensure you are paid before any gig. I
would like for you to return the courtesy. If you
get paid I should get paid. I have as much bills
as you and this is work. Cheers bro.
Which Wizkid curtly answered with:
Bleep you Godwin. Don't bother coming to work
Keeping it classy, Gowin replied by simply
Reps for Wizkid and Godwin Tom could not be
reached for a comment.

Members of a five-man gang of kidnappers,

spot where they attack and rob them of their

The suspects, Micheal Eneji, his brother,
Emmanuel Eneji, Chukwu Chibueze, Gift
Princess, and Lekia Emmaden Isaac, were
apprehended by the Rivers State police
command days after the family of one of their
latest victims, Shola Olaseinde reported the
victim missing. Continue...
He was later found in a decomposing state in a
bush, close to a deserted pipeline area at
Eleme, Port Harcourt, Rivers State. Few metres
away, was also the decomposed body of
another victim, who was later identified as Mr.
Progress Benin Disi, a staffer of Shell Oil
servicing company whose family had also
reported missing since March 7, 2014.
On their arrest, the state Commissioner of
Police, Tunde Ogunsakin told Saturday Sun that
the command acted on the complaint by the
family of one of their victims, Shola Olaseinde
who got missing on March 26, 2014.
"When his family waited for him and could not
reach him, they lodged a complaint and I
instructed the officer in charge of anti-
kidnapping, CSP Akan to hunt for the missing
father and husband.
"Through intelligence gathering, we were able
to arrest the gang of four men and a lady. They
led us to Ebubu, Eleme, Rivers State, at an

Oreoluwa Oyeyemi Ola, popularly known as
Mo'Cheddah in a recent interview with Punch
Nigeria, spoke about her new hair brand and
style for her latest song and the concept behind
"It does not have a name, but my stylist says
people call it the Mo'Cheddah hairstyle. She
says anytime anybody comes to her salon to
make this style, they just say they want the
Mo'Cheddah hairstyle". Mo'Cheddah said, when
she was asked about the name of her hairdo
which seems unusual.
The singer went on to explain the concept
behind it saying; "It does not hide my face. I
feel it makes me look fierce. My friend used to
make this hairstyle some years ago. I never
wore short hair, I like long hair. I decided to try
something different and when I did, I fell in love
with the style immediately. I never stopped
doing it after that. My friend still teases me till
date that I am going to pay her for copyright
However, when it was inquired from her, the
reason(s) for her long break from the music
industry, the young diva replied, "it was
deliberate. I just needed a break. I had done so
much. I had done a lot of travelling, shows,
awards, meetings, brand ambassadorship, I just
needed the break. I was in school as well and
shortly before I graduated, I was beginning to
I needed the break to get in touch with myself
because I did not know what was going on
around me anymore. I did not even know what
class my nephew was. It seemed as if I was
rushing through life and I was not learning
anything. I just realised that if I did not take
that break, I was going to crash and I would not
be able to get up again. I took the break to clear
my mind, grow as an individual and focus on
claims that the Nigerian artist
who ranted about blogs
uploading his song is set to
finally sue some blogs.
9ice who took to twitter to pour
out how he felt about blogs
uploading songs without
permission and how it is killing
the industry did not plan to sue
to any but just warn bloggers.
Reports we hear is that a
lawyer has told 9ice to sue
these blogs and that he
shouldn't just warn them,
according to the lawyer "they
do not pay tax..they do not pay
rent..all they do is upload your
song without permission and
make money from their
It looks like 9ice would be going
to the court soon to sue the
unnamed blogs ..so we warn
fellow bloggers out there…
DELETE HIS SONG ASAP , cause
a stick in time saves 9ice..sorry
Paul Okoye of P-Square having issues for a while
now. I hear they disagree on everything
now...songs, videos, ideas etc...but because
they are twin brothers, I figured well, they will
sort things out...so I didn't write.
On Wednesday April 16th, I gathered
exclusively from industry sources that the
brothers fought each other physically during
rehearsals. They had to be separated by their
dancers. This is fact! But I decided to leave the
story alone because which sibling doesn't
disagree sometimes, right? But now their older
brother, Jude Okoye, who is also their manager,
just tweeted that after ten years he's done.
I hear one of the wives is causing some of the
problems between the brothers.
