Ahead of the 2019 elections, Wizkid has aired his views on ongoing political issues being debated in preparation for Saturday’s Presidential election. He has informed Nigerians to vote for who they feel is capable of moving the country forward.

Recently, Davido publicly stated his preferred candidates for the elections and even revealed that he is being threatened over his political disposition but he remains fearless.

In a recent post shared on his Snapchat, the Starboy advised Nigerians not to sell their votes and to vote wisely.

He warned that no one should vote a candidate endorsed by celebrities because they have been paid for it.

He urged Nigerians to vote any presidential candidate who is capable of thinking and would move the country forward.

The ‘Fever’ crooner also warned leaders of the country to own up to their responsibility to serve the people.

“Don’t let anyone wey don collect money influence your vote to tell you who’s right or not. Use your head.

“Vote wisely, I’m for whoever the people vote.

“If you’re old to vote, you’re old enough to think. Don’t sell your vote, your vote can make a difference.

“And politicians wey they enter stop joking with peoples lives! You are responsible for the lives of millions of people and your decision affects all.

“Help us make Nigeria a better place, make una use your head. One love!”

On 5 March 2013, Charles Mgbolu (a writer for Vanguard) reported that Wizkid established his label imprint Starboy Entertainment. During an interview with Silverbird Television, Wizkid told Yvonne Vixen Ekwere that he planned on signing new acts to the label. Wizkid told Showtime Celebrity that he established his own record label to give up-and-coming artists a platform to showcase their talent. On 17 April 2013, Wizkid signed Maleek Berry to Starboy Entertainment. Wizkid and Maleek Berry’s work credits include “Lagos to Soweto” and “The Matter”, among others.

On 29 April 2013, Premium Times reported that Wizkid signed producers Uzezi Oniko and Okiemute Oniko, popularly known as Legendury Beatz, to his imprint.

He made the announcement moments after debuting the music video for “Caro”, the label’s first official single. On May 7, 2016, Wizkid announced the signings of Efya, R2Bees, and Mr Eazi to Starboy Entertainment. He made the announcement shortly after his performance at the 17th edition of the Ghana Music Awards

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble
    with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup.
    Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

    First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick
    question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear
    your head prior to writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Many thanks!

    What you published was actually very logical.
    But, think on this, suppose you typed a catchier title?
    I am not suggesting your content is not good., however what if you added a title
    to possibly get folk’s attention? I mean 2019: Wiz Kid Finally
    Speaks, Tells Nigerians Who They Should Vote For In 2019 Election | Fastest Delivery Of Magazine is a little
    boring. You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create article titles to grab viewers
    to open the links. You might add a video or a related picture or two to
    get readers excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it might make
    your posts a little livelier.

Another Alleged N6.2bn Palliative Fraud Hits NDDC •Official Petitions Senate, Demands Dissolution Of IMC

Published

FEW weeks after the nation was treated to mindboggling revelations of misappropriation of N1.5 billion by the Interim  Management Committee (IMC) of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), the Federal Government intervention agency is in the news again over alleged embezzlement of N6.2 billion approved for palliative by President  Muhammadu Buhari.

Chairman of the palliative distribution committee of the commission, High Chief Sobomabo Jackrich, has since petitioned separately the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan and the Speaker of the House of Representatives,  Honourable Femi Gbajabiamila, asking the duo to investigate the alleged financial recklessness.

Jackrich, in a 12-paragraph petition dated August 3, 2020, entitled: “Demand for investigation over alleged misappropriation and diversion of N6.2 billion NDDC palliative money,” claimed that he was sidelined in the procurement and distribution of palliative items to residents of the nine states covered by the commission.

A similar alleged misappropriation of N1.5 billion was investigated recently by both chambers of the National Assembly.  In the fresh petition, Jackrich asked the lawmakers to investigate his claim as he dismissed the distribution of the palliative items by the IMC led by Professor Daniel Pondei as a charade. He said: “The N6.25 billion that was magnanimously approved by President Buhari to help the poor and indigents of the Niger Delta during this difficult period of the pandemic has curiously been allegedly misappropriated and embezzled by the IMC of the NDDC and their co-conspirators.

“As the chairman of the palliatives distribution committee, my findings is not only that the money cannot be accounted  for, but there is nothing on ground to show that N6.2 billion of our hard-earned taxpayers’ money was invested for  its original purpose which the president approved.”

He called for the dissolution of the interim management of the commission, adding that the forensic audit was a  smokescreen being flaunted by the Professor Pondei team to allegedly continue financial sleaze of the intervention agency.

FG Increases Hate Speech Fine From N500,000 To N5m

Published

THE Federal Government has announced that its newly- unveiled reviewed Nigeria Broadcasting Code has provisions to increase the hate speech fine for people found culpable of hate speech from N500,000 to N5 million. This is as it said the amendment of the broadcasting code is boosting local content, among other provisions.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who made the increased hate speech fine known in Lagos on Tuesday while unveiling the reviewed code, stated that the amendment contains the anti-trust provision aimed at encouraging the growth of the local industry.

The minister, who was speaking at the unveiling ceremony organised by the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC),  aid the anti-trust provision would boost local content and local industry due to laws prohibiting exclusive use of rights by broadcasters who intend to create monopolies and hold the entire market to themselves, as it will also encourage  open access to premium content.

“I must explain that this provision is not new to Nigeria broadcasting. Exclusivity was disallowed at a certain time in the  history of our broadcasting. I recall Multichoice sub-licensing EPL matches to other local operators in Nigeria. I recall  HITV engaging several local operators on sub-licensing the EPL when they got the rights,” he said.

According to him, the revised code contains the law prohibiting backlog of advertising debts in order to promote sustainability for the station owners and producers of content, as well as the law on the registration of web broadcasting,  which will grant the country the opportunity to regulate negative foreign broadcasts that can harm the nation.

“The provisions on the responsibility of broadcast stations to devote airtime to national emergencies obviously mandates terrestrial and pay-TV channels to make their services available to Nigerians at time of national emergencies – like the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic – for their education and enlightenment,” the minister said.
