Randoms: Cossy the Mentor, Matchmaking Oshiomole, Tunde Ednut's idleness, Brandy's ugly beauties, Burna Boy an ex-con and under ban..

I'm here with another set of randoms (this is fast becoming a trend with me om this blog, lol!) and there's a bunch of issues I just took a look at. There would have been more but I didn't want to end up with an extra extra long post. 

So lets begin.

The news went round the internet recently about Cossy Orjiakor and Tony Tetuila's visit to the Next Movie Star house (I didn't even know the show still existed) to mentor the contestants. Cossy was said to have brought her 'gang' of chicks along.

I can understand Tony Tetuila dropping a thing or two from his past success in music but somebody please tell me wetin Cossy wan teach these housemates? What on earth is she going to mentor them on? How to strip and post it on twitter? Many of us know that Cossy is just famous for having big tits and for other unmentionables; she's like a Kim Kardashian that got famous for a sex tape and hardly any real talent. I'm not sure the producers of the show know what they are doing. Or is it because they could not afford other celebrities to come on the show? 

But according to one of Cossy's Tweets where she blasted Hiphopworld, she was on the show just to party with the housemates. 

Cossy's ridiculed Hiphopworld's Headies award as a 'cheapo' award that cost just 20k. I don't know if an award trophy is supposed to cost a fortune after all, I've seen award plaques that were no doubt cheaply assembled by some local artisan.

Back to the Next movie star scenario - the pictures didn't look like a party though, they looked like she was instructing, addressing them or being interviewed. But then I may be wrong.

Well, lets hope the producers know what they are doing...and hope they don't go too far by inviting another shocking wonder like 'Afrocandy'  to come mentor or party on the programme.


Ever since Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomole made the infamous erroneous remark to an erring widow and later apologized, people have not stopped talking about it. While sensible people are commnending the governor for making amends and even compensating the widow with N2 million and a job offer, others that seem to have lost proper brain functions went ahead to rant rubbish on websites like the piece written by one Olabode Emmanuel Olawumi.

Governor Oshiomole having tea with the widow, Mrs Joy Ifije...
but seriously she doesn't look bad though
Then after the compensation of the widow, some weird folks now say that the governor should marry the widow since he is also a widower. Haba!

A report that carried the news stated:
"According to some respondents in Ogun state, the meeting between the governor and the widow may have been occasioned by divine forces. The respondents were of the opinion that, being a widower, there was no harm in the Governor remarrying and that it would be appropriate to marry a widow.Albert Ashipa, a politician in the state, said, “I am of the opinion and conviction that the meeting and the incident between the governor and the widow, which later attracted public attention, was divine. As we can see today, the governor felt for the woman, had to apologise over the error and even empowered her.”“From my own opinion, I think God has a purpose for the two of them and there is nothing wrong if the two eventually fall in love, in view of their marital positions. I believe both cannot and should not remain single parents for life,” Adunni Eweje, a petty trader in Kuto market said.Razaq Ayinla, a civil servant, while commending the governor for his gesture, concurred that the development was God’s doing and advised both the governor and the woman to make good use of the opportunity.Adesola Adenopo, a resident of Government Reservation Area (GRA) in Abeokuta, in her reaction, noted that biblically, it is appropriate for the two of them to re-marry."

I don't know who begged these Ogun state indiegenes to make comments like these. Wetin concern them with Edo State governor? Edo State people are not clamouring for their governor to marry the widow, so wetin concern una? Abeg...my state people, una dey fall my hand.



Tunde Ednut was reported to have mocked fat people over instagram. Why did he have to do that? Was it because he needed to get some attention? Maybe...because I really don't what what the guy excels in...they said he's a comedian but I only saw him do the funny in a comedy show ad once, they say he's a artiste but there's nothing wow in his music (I personally felt it the move was a big mistake). But why make fun of fat people? Eniola badmus reacted maturedly to his immature post by stating:
 “Being fat doesn’t mean you can’t make it in life, beauty is not size, you niggaz have a problem with being fat. Bring no one down, we are all human, no discrimination, we are all created by God. I rep plus size”

Thank God he warmed up apologetically to her...or he for hear whin. Somebody needs to come to his rescue and give him some gigs so as to put him out of his idle misery.


Brandy and her 'beautiful' pictures.
She even snapped a naked mad person...chai!
And while Tunde Ednut was making fun of fat people, Brandy, the american R&B singer, was indirectly making fun of Africa when she posted pictures depicting abject poverty on her visit to a number of places in Africa including Nigeria. 

She tagged the pictures as 'beautiful' but people were not swayed. The pictures sparked an outrage. What's beautiful about poverty? And why did she go snapping unflattering photos when she could have taken photos that showcased interesting African cultures?

There are lots and lots of real beautiful pictures that could have been taken, what she did painted Africa and Africans in a negative light. How is she expected to sell out well in African tours if she makes fun of its people?

Wrong move Ms Norwood!

Heh? What is this piece of info circulating? That Burna Boy is an ex-convict? That he was part of a gang that stabbed someone to death? 

Oh boy!

I remember watching an episode of 'The Big Friday Show' where a prank was played on Burna Boy. I can't remember what the prank actually was but it was aimed at making him percieve he was in some kind of trouble. Right there before our korokoro eyes, Burna Boy lost it and was about beating up the prankster. His anger was so vivid I came to the conclusion that this dude is someone you never want to mess around with.

And then we hear this news cropping up about him having a dark past. Does this remind you of someone?

Yes it does....it reminds me vividly of Kayode Oshin.

Do they all always have to be like that? Must a rap or dancehall artistes have a criminal past or background?

According to Thenet.ng:

"Burna Boy’s ‘uncontrollable’ mannerism and persona didn’t just start yesterday; NET investigations and sources have linked him to a criminal past, a period of his life he would rather not make public knowledge.We are told on good authority that while in the UK back in 2010, Burna Boy was arrested by London Police for allegedly being part of a gang and stabbing someone to death. He was tried as a minor and sent to jail.After 11 months, he was released and given two months parole plus community service on the grounds of being of ‘good behaviour’. But Burna is said to have disobeyed authorities and travelled back to Nigeria where he signed a record deal with Aristokrat.He later travelled back to the UK but was arrested at the airport and deported to Nigeria. He is currently barred from the UK for the next 15 years"

Is that why Nigerian telecom giant Globacom is not willing to extend their contract with him?.

Man...and I was kind of rooting for him oh...


And that's all for today's randoms folks. Have an awesome weekend!
