niyola and kemi adetiba 2

Directed by award winning director, cinematographer and former Maltina Dance All host, Kemi Bassey Adetiba, “Toh Bad” is undoubtedly one of (if not) the best music video of 2013. From the scene showing the blog page, to the part where the babe(Niyola) is mesmerized by the new mercedes, to the kitchen scene where she watched her boo deny her on Tv, this video is a short story well interpreted and directed. Its simply #TohBad. On a scale of 10, i rate it 9.

Niyola is signed onto EME, same record label that parades such stars as BankyW, Wizkid & Skales, and trust me, this song will take her places. It might interest you to know that Niyola is not new in the Nigerian music scene as she featured in Ruggedman’s “RuggedyBaba” album on the track “If i could do it all”, a few years ago.

I just saw this post on Linda Ikeji’s Blog about the death of one of my secondary school mates at Oraifte Boys’. He is Asaba-based Nollywood actor and Location Manager Chinedu Epeagba who is alleged to have died from complications triggered by a Chinese slimming tea. I don’t know how true this is, but a statement by one of the doctors that treated him suggests Chinedu, also known as Dabebe died as a result of complications from the slimming tea;

 “Our preliminary investigation, backed with scientific presentations from the last doctor that treated him in Onitsha, shows that Dabebe died from complications triggered by the made in China slimming tea, which he started drinking in July. This tea, medicine or whatever, gradually destroyed all his internal organs and by the time he became too weak and got rushed to the hospital, his body couldn’t respond to treatment; organs were ruined already. The sad news is that Dabebe, that promising young man, is dead.”
