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.

Pastor Jeremiah Steepek 1
Pastor Jeremiah Steepek transformed himself into a homeless person and went to the 10,000 member church that he was to be introduced as the head pastor at that morning.
He walked around his soon to be church for 30 minutes while it was filling with people for service, only 3 people out of the about 10,000 people said hello to him. He asked people for change to buy food – no one in the church gave him change. He went into the sanctuary to sit down in the front of the church and was asked by the ushers if he would please sit in the back.  He greeted people only to be greeted back with stares and dirty looks, with people looking down on him and judging him. As he sat in the back of the church, he listened to the church announcements and such.  When all that was done, the elders went up and were excited to introduce the new pastor of the church to the congregation.
 “We would like to introduce to you Pastor Jeremiah Steepek.” The congregation looked around clapping with joy and anticipation. The homeless man sitting in the back stood up and started walking down the aisle. The clapping stopped with all eyes on him. He walked up the altar and took the microphone from the elders (who were in on this) and paused for a moment then he recited:
Pastor Jeremiah Steepek 2
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 
“Then the righteous will answer him: ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
After he recited this, he looked towards the congregation and told them all what he had experienced that morning. Many began to cry and many heads were bowed in shame.
He then said, “Today I see a gathering of people, not a church of Jesus Christ. The world has enough people, but not enough disciples. When will YOU decide to become disciples?”
Pastor Jeremiah Steepek then dismissed service until the upper week.
Dear reader, What does this story teach you?

jonathan sacks joy emordi

In a statement released by Special Assistant on Media & Publicity to the President, Reuben Abati on Friday, 2 of President Jonathan’s aides have been relieved of their appointments. The statement reads;

“President Goodluck Jonathan has relieved Mrs. Joy Emordi of her appointment as Special Adviser to the President on National Assembly Matters with immediate effect. The President has similarly terminated the appointment of Dr. Tunji Olagunju as his Special Adviser on the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD). President Jonathan thanks Mrs. Emordi and Dr. Olagunju for their services and wishes them success in their future endeavours.”

No reason was given for their sack, but speculations are rife within that Emordi’s sack may not be unconnected with the drama at the House of Representatives when the NewPDP led by Kawu Baraje stormed the lower chambers.
