2013 Headies Awards Is Still Generating More Controversy, Read Open Letter Titled 'The Aftermath'

I am a big time lover of Nigerian Music from the days of Kennis Music’s domination, Remedies, Plantashun boiz et al; and it is a good thing to have you “Ayo Animashaun” introduce the “Hip Hop World Award” now known as the “Headies”.

The past awards have been credible or let’s just say close to perfect with little errors. Coming down to HEADIES 2013, the errors this year CANNOT be waived. Needless to say they were noticeable and cannot be IGNORED. Everyone loves a good show, and value for money spent on tickets, plus Nigerians that supported by watching on television.

OJB In A Recent Interview Explains Why He Is Angry With D'Banj And Says Celebs Used His Donation As Competition

During an interview with Inspiration FM's Gloria Maduka, veteran music producer OJB Jezreel addressed controversy surrounding his donations, saying he is angry with D'Banj and other celebs who used it as competition. Read below...
"The most disappointing one for me is D'banj because he passed through my hands, he was trained under my tutelage. That is offensive. I don't care if you're with Kanye West, you can't forget your root. I won't call anybody else's name but I will call his because it hurts. His own hurts very deep. And he never tried to reach out to me. It's not like we parted on fighting terms.  He told me he had to go to London and he went. And when he came back it was Don Jazzy, and I said OK, that's fine. And what he did worked and I'm very proud of him, the love I had for him, that's why it hurts more. He should have come out to say no, I don't know why you people are saying all this, I didn't give OJB N7million, maybe a part of him felt embarrassed because at the end of the day, really, are you not supposed to do something?" OJB says during the interview

Pastor Tunde Bakare Says The President Sent Him A Cow For Xmas! El-Rufai Reacts

According to reports, here is what the pastor said about the cow he was given by President Goodluck Jonathan during this festive period.

I had a cow from the presidency. I didn’t ask for it. They dropped it at the Save Nigerian Group (SNG) office. But is it cow that we need? If you check their books, one cow was bought for $5000g. The rest of the money is pocketed. We don’t need cow, we need a country that will move forward. They prevailed on not to return it. Thanks for the cow, but no thanks! That means no cow for me next year. (Laughs). But we will have good roads, schools etc! We are the cause of our problem. We feel big. Mr President sent me hampers etc. We go to them for contracts etc. Until we change ourselves, we cannot expect change from those who lead us.
