A marketer stole my N2m when I released my first album –Ogogo

Unknown to many, veteran actor, Taiwo Hassan fondly called Ogogo, is a singer who specialises in Yoruba poetry. He infuses the poetry with songs to make it melodious.
In a recent chat with Saturday Beats, Ogogo recalled that being a novice in the industry, a marketer stole N2m from him when he first ventured into music but he said he has since forgiven the marketer even though he refused to divulge the name of the said marketer. He however said the incident did not deter him from singing.
“After my illness, I released an album which I titled ‘Appreciation’ in 2009. It is more about Yoruba poetry. I had it in mind to produce the album but I had kept procrastinating. One day, I went into the studio with some of my younger ones and I produced the album. It was launched in America and was well accepted, so I decided to do the same in Nigeria. I produced the album but unfortunately for me, the marketer I was dealing with stole over N2m from me. I did not make noise about it; neither did I chase him about with the police. To be honest, I felt the impact of the theft but I thank God that I am hale and hearty today,” Ogogo said.

Senator Iyabo Obasanjo in a letter to her father accused him of having an egoistic craving for power and living a life where only men of low esteem and intellect thrive.

.People don't always take me serious- Charles Awurum

Charles Awurum is one of the highly rated comic-actors in the Nigerian movie industry. But the question is, can he be ever serious in whatever he is doing? His comic attitude makes many to wonder if he easily gets angry as he is seen laughing over everything that happens.The actor was at the resident of Nigeria’s football hero, Austin Jay Jay Okocha along with fellow actor, Saka, but when it was time for food to be served, Okocha’s wife, Nkechi, brought water for him to wash his hands.Being an Igbo lady with good upbringing, the lady had to hold the bowl for him while she pours water on his hands for him to wash.Charles, who could not hold back his happiness, bragged that he has been prophesying that he is a big man but people do not believe him and now he has an evidence to prove.“Una see am, i tell una sey God don bless me, una no gree, Nkechi, JJ Okocha 's wife serving me.

“Buhari will defeat Jonathan this time because …”

Buhari and Jonathan
More than 30 years after he ruled with an iron fist, jailing the corrupt and championing the virtues of military discipline in all things, Muhammadu Buhari is now being billed as Nigeria’s saviour.
The 71-year-old retired army general on Thursday won a landslide victory for the main opposition All Progressive Congress (APC) ticket to challenge Goodluck Jonathan for the presidency next year.
A win would be fourth time lucky for Buhari after a previous failed attempt against Jonathan in 2011 and unsuccessful bids in 2007 and 2003.
His latest candidacy was met with scorn by the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who said the moustachioed former military ruler has nothing new to offer.
Jonathan, in power since 2010, said the February 14 vote was “a choice between going forward or going backwards, between the new ways and the old ways, between freedom and repression”.
PDP spokesman Olisa Metuh added: “Apart from changing to a dinner suit, General Buhari has not changed the tired ideas and provocative utterances that Nigerians rejected in previous elections.”
Yet far from being dismissed as one of the old guard, Buhari’s methods are seen by some as the only way to help Africa’s troubled giant change course.

Family planning: why men should take up the battle

We all listened with rapt attention as Uncle Steve narrated a personal experience he described as a narrow escape from the hands of a young, calculating, gold digger and her mother. But for reluctantly opting to undergo a vasectomy seven years ago, he would have blindly walked into a trap and become a polygamist, he said, and we all broke into laughter, including his wife.
Uncle Steve was not one to hide or mince words, he is a professional ladies man, if there is anything like that. I had always wondered why his wife allowed him so much freedom and preferred to look the other way even when Uncle obviously went out of line with his relationships and stories. But by the end of that evening, a small gathering of close family and friends to mark his wife’s 57th birthday, I had a clearer picture of the relationship this very unique couple share.
