EXCLUSIVE: SANUSI LAMIDO ON 2011 TIME's 100 MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN THE WORLD

 CBN Gorvernor, Sanusi Lamido has been listed alongside Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Page, Barrack Obama, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, Michelle Obama in the Time's most influential People in the world. Acoording to Time, this year's list consist of artists and activists, reformers and researchers, heads of state and captains of industry. Their ideas spark dialogue and dissent and sometimes even revolution. Lamido's reform in the banking sector got him on the list.


The story of Nigeria's first half-century of Independence is a tale of wasted potential: sub-Saharan Africa's most populous country, home to its biggest oil riches, impoverished by thieving autocrats. A key reason a new Nigeria no longer seems fanciful is Central Bank governor Lamido Sanusi.
A veteran of an often corrupt banking industry, Sanusi, 49, took up his position at the height of the financial crisis in June 2009 and immediately turned on his former peers. He took over nine banks, sacked the chief executives of eight of them, ordered a series of mergers and named their biggest debtors. He was, he said, cleaning up not just banking but all Nigeria. Sanusi's will be a long fight and a dangerous one: death threats have obliged him to employ armed guards. But it is also essential for Africa's sleeping giant to finally awaken.

"NOLLYWOOD WILL BE THE NEXT BIG THING IN WORLD CINEMA"--FORBES

Just believe it. Nigeria's movie industry is thriving, and it's about time you took notice. Fondly referred to as Nollywood, it is now an $800 million industry, providing employment for about 300,000 people as actors, directors, marketers and distributors. After Hollywood, it is the second largest in
the world– even bigger than India's Bollywood. Nigerian movies are immensely popular, particularly in Africa, where they currently outsell Hollywood films. And Nollywood stars are much more popular on the continent than their Hollywood counterparts. Chances are that Kenyans or Malawians will better recognize Genevieve Nnaji and Ramsey Nouah (both Nollywood idols), than Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington. Nollywood has come a long way from where it started 20 years ago. Before now,

FUNKE AKINDELE DEDICATES 'THE RETURN OF JENIFA' TO LATE CD JOHN

Late comedian, CD John played a role in 'the return of Jenfia'. Late comedian died in a fatal car accident some weeks back, and was mourned nationwide. Other stars who are new to acting; the likes of eldee, ikechukwu, naetoC, banky W, kaffy starred in the movie too.
Funke disclosed this via the movie's facebook page
'Cee Dee John was one of the
cast member of TROJ, He played an interesting part
in the movie. He played a role in which he had an
encounter wiv Jenifa in the movie. He wld b greatly
missed. As a result Of this, We have Decided 2
Dedicate TROJ 2 the Late Cee Dee John......'

SYNOPSIS
The movie resolves the suspense that enveloped
Jenifa's 'exploits. Jenifa is required to undergo HIV
test that will enable her participate in a dancing
competition, unsure of her status, Jenifa fled. There is
a palpable silence as to the repercussion of Jenifa
excesses, especially her HIV status.
She becomes her own antagonist by being evasive;
dreading the determination of her HIV status.
Attendant result is a withdrawal from the society she
once ruled and so she relocated back to her village.
She does not stop being her crazy self while in the
village but in the end, she learns life is not about
being a 'Gbogbo Bigs Girls' without values.
Funke Akindele shines once again in the most
dramatic, captivating and thrilling delivery of The
Return Of Jenifa. The film is a vindicated Funke
Akindele aka Jenifa as she "went under the skin"
to show human weaknesses, hope and above all,
God's providence.

Segun Odegbami, bash alli, Falilat ogunkoya, Tara Durotoye, Monami, Mocheedah and other top celebrities starred in Funke Akindele's Omo getto (part 2). Funke says the movie will be out soon.
