Naija Celebrities Planking: Dprince, Olamide, YQ And Others Take To The Stunt [Pictures]

Planking game has swept twitter. Still don't know why people are crazy about this silly stunt.
The lying down game (also known as planking, or face downs) is an activity, popular in various parts of the world, consisting of lying face down in an unusual or incongruous location. The hands must touch the sides of the body, and having a photograph of the participant taken and posted on the Internet is an integral part of the game.
Players compete to find the most unusual and original location in which to play.
The location should also be as public as possible, and as many people as possible should be involved.
I heard a man died while planking, fell from a balcony
Here are pictures of our own celebs; Dprince, YQ, Ebuka, Olamide and Dr. Sid planking.*sigh* Will be posting more celebs planking pix soon

KSwitch (Dbanj's bro) and James(Don Jazzy's Bro) Ventures Into Oil And Gas Business

Dbanj's blood brother, Kswitch and Don Jazzy's brother, James are really thinking big. The two brothers to naija's biggest stars were trying to make the society better and at the same time make their money when they came up with the idea of oil and gas home delivery service. I'm beginning to suspect these boyz are the brains behind the koko branded investments, for them to have . But this time its not koko oil and gas, its named after them, James n Switch Energy Limited.

JamesNswitch is an oil and gas company based in Lagos supplying door to door delivery of oil and gas to private and public premises.

Chris had much fun with Obj, very unusual, they had a nice time at Obasanjo's farm.

"Nigerian Hip Hop, Long a Copy, Grows Into Its Own" By BET

LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) — Nigeria's most talked-about hip-hop video exhibits all the excesses of its American counterparts — beautiful, scantily clad models, a mansion and a bathtub full of hundred-dollar bills.

But the biggest surprise? America's own Snoop Dogg playing back up to Nigerian star D'banj, embracing him as his nephew and taking a Nigerian passport before leaving the rest of the remixed "Mr. Endowed" to the Yoruba-singing heartthrob.

Nigeria, Africa's most populous nation with 150 million people, long has been a leading cultural influence across the continent. Its low-budget "Nollywood" films can be found everywhere, while its music plays in taxicabs and minibuses far beyond its borders.

The Glitzy Premiere Of 'Kiss And Tell'

Monalisa Chinda and Nse Ikpe Etim
Anyone passing through the Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island, on June 20, 2011, could sense a mile away that something extraordinary was happening at the Silverbird Galleria.
From the long traffic, to the filled Silverbird car park, to the large number of dapperly looking guests walking into the galleria and the red carpet stand that was flooded with stars, the event could not have been anything other than the premiere of ‘Kiss and Tell’.

The Kiss and Tell premiere started at about 4pm with a red carpet event at the Atrium of the Silverbird Cinemas, which lasted for about four hours as against the two hours planned out. This was not surprising though, as the large number of paparazzi on ground could not have enough of the long list of stars on ground. The roll call of stars in attendance include; Monalisa Chinda, Emem Isong, Joseph Benjamin, Uche Jumbo, Lilian Bach, Susan Bash, Julius Agwu, Fred Amata and a whole lot of others.

At about 8pm guests moved into the hall for the premiere proper. The Nigerian comedian and radio presenter Yaw, who was the anchor of the event, came on stage and introduced the executive producer, producer and the cast of the movie who took a bow after a resounding applause from the audience.

Guests were taken through several crescendos of fun and laughter as the romantic comedy ‘Kiss and Tell’ came up on the screen. Executive Producer of the movie Monalisa Chinda and producer, Emem Isong were all smiles after the movie as the standing ovation and applause they got after the movie signalled to them that they did a good job.

‘Kiss and Tell’ features A-list Nollywood actors like Desmond Elliot who also directed the movie, Monalisa Chinda, Nse Ikpe-Etim, Uche Jombo, Joseph Benjamin, Bhaira Mcwizu, Darlene Benson and others. It will start showing in Abuja, Lagos, Port Harcourt and other parts of the country from July 18.

In ‘Kiss and Tell’, Iyke (Joseph Benjamin), the ultimate player in the game of women runs Blue Quest with his friend Bernard (Desmond Elliot); their friendship however does not apply to their coy. Iyke, who prides himself as the ultimate player per excellence however met his match perhaps more than he bargain for in Delphine (Monalisa Chinda), a divorce lawyer who is a divorcee herself. Iyke is about to lose a bet, a controlling shares of Blue Quest. He has to win or lose all.

Empress Njamah Caught Up In Nude Picture Scandal

Its another nude photo scandal? Celebs nude picture is no new thing in nigeria again. The likes of Wande Coal, Anita Hogan, and others fell victim one time, and they've all denied the pictures.
An alleged nude picture of Nollywood actress and Timaya's ex, Empress Njamah surfaced on the net.
And the question is, Could this be Empress Njamah giving a blowjob?

This woman in the picture looks just like her. I dont think its Empress coz she's not the kind of gal that seeks this type of attention. She already denied the nude picture.

"I have Officially Terminated My contract with BadBeat Records. Firstly, I wanna advice any
upcoming artist to be careful before signing any

After building my career to a certain level, I expected any partnership wit a record label to take me to a certain level, that didn't happen.
Badbeat Records. They don't have any
foundation. No office, no studio, nothing! All they
have is a bank account where they put my

What is so important is that I met Djinee at the show in Enugu.. And he said.. Ur good.. If you need a place to stay..I got you"

R kelly blessing 2face
Lately, our local artistes have been getting some international connects, their work has been attracting international acts...dbanj linked with kanye, darey making some moves, psquare linked with drake. I call them "already established artistes in nigeria fast becoming upcoming acts in hiphop world".

Like 2face is not left out, a close source disclosed that he has been flying to US to record songs off his upcoming album in R. Kelly's studio. They hooked up after the one8 group was formed. Another international breakthrough album in the making?

He has hooked up with akon already, not another fake collaboration, Akon himself confirmed it...they recorded together in Atlanta where Akon is based. The video of him and american RnB queen, Mary J blige recording gave us a sneak peak into his upcoming album. Like its having international music feel, considering the sound quality and production.

T.B Joshua Wants His Name Removed From Forbes' Richest Nigerian Pastors List

T.B joshua wants his name removed from the list of 5 richest nigerian pastor published by a blogger on forbes' site. Can't make any comment on this coz I do shy away from criticising Men Of God

Excerpts from T. B Joshua's representative press statement

"We therefore cannot be categorized among the wealthiest in Nigeria because what money we receive is not accumulated but rather given out to those who need it most. Apart from money, assets that classify one among the wealthiest are not in our possession. For example, houses around the world or private jets. It is true, we do not own a private jet – not that there is anything wrong with owning one. They are a blessing and can be used to further the Gospel. But we do not own one."
