Naija Entertainment News.

Let's do Naija entertainment news. It's been a while abi?

That's a good way to start huh? lol

Funlola wins Celebrity Takes2

Ok, to the first news of the year. Broadcaster, TV/radio personality, Funlola Aofiyebi won Celebrity Takes 2. A dance competition. Sorta like America's Dancing with the Stars. She went home with an undisclosed amount of cash and a 4X4 Hoover, (Jeep).

Beauty Queen, Omowunmi came second, while Fuji artist, Pasuma came third. Celebrity Takes 2 was Nigeria's most watched reality TV show of 2007. Season 2 is coming soon!

Bunmi Ademokoya emerges as world's best female model
Bunmi who emerged 2nd place position at the Nigeria's Next Super Model competition has done Nigeria proud as she just emerged as the Best Model of the World 2007 at the Model of The World Competition which took place in Turkey. She won a modeling contract with Top Skin Care company and lots of cash too. Congrats to her

Yahoo enters Nigeria
Yahoo Inc., the world's leading internet service firm has officially birthed in Nigeria.

The firm has appointed Seed Media Ltd, as her exclusive media sales representative in Sub Saharan Africa. According to Seed Media, this platform offers Nigerian brands the opportunity to advertise, connect with global opportunities and foster strategic business partnership in Nigeria. This partnership starts with Nigeria and will gradually move into other key Yahoo markets in the continent.

Tuface expecting baby no3?
I think Pero reads this blog, so she might come after me after reading this, but I'm sure I can take her up on a girl to girl
Here's what I read in City People today. They said she's pregnant again with Tuface's baby. They already have a cute daughter, named Esi, born in May 2005. Now they say she's about to pop baby number 2 and might be walking down the aisle with the singing sensation. I've always hoped Tuface will end up with his longtime girlfriend Annie Macaulay, but if Pero is pregnant again, then it's time for Annie to exit the building. There's just so much a woman can take. Good luck to Pero and Tu baba.

Soul E drops new album
Despite all the wahala between Soul E and his record label Colossal Records, the singer has decided to release his much talked about new album 'His Excellency'. The 2in1 album which is probably the first of such from a pop artiste, has 12 tracks each, with four bonus tracks on each album. The first part is a collection of dance hall tracks, while the second part is made up of RnB songs. Featured in the album are singers like Singupon, P'Santa, Georgee and of course his wife and manager, Ure Ukezie.

Pasuma also drops new album
Fuji musician Wasiu Alabi Pasuma, released a new album titled Stability, on Christmas day. According to the Kwara-born singer who recently clocked 40, Stability is one album which sheds light on the present state of the Fuji music industry. Here's what he had to say.
Pasuma "I thank God for what he has done with my career and it is obvious that I have carved a niche for myself, so I am stable. 2007 has been a good year for me and I have been able to achieve at least 10% of what I want to achieve, that is, taking Fuji music to the next level. For me to achieve more, I have to be stabilized. That is why I titled the album 'Stability'"
Eedris apologises to 50 cent
A few weeks ago, American rapper 50 cent was in Nigeria, for the media launch of Kora Awards, which is scheduled to take place in Nigeria later this year. Well, it's no longer news that rapper, Idris Abdulkareem engaged 50's people in a fight when they came here in 2004. The news now is that Idris publicly apologised to 50 at the Kora launch where he also performed. The apology was broadcast live on TV and it has since become the subject of discussion in the entertainment industry. Why did Idris apologise to 50 cent? Here's what he said. Idris "I am not a bad person. I was just trying to make a point, which my other colleagues are bginning to enjoy now, because all this corporate bodies now respect Nigerian artistes. And that I apologised to him means I have no grudge against him"

Ruggedman, Pasuma, D Banj turn bar tenders at Soundcity Blast 07.

Soundcity Blast 07 was nothing but a concept built on creativity and beautiful innovation, as top Nigerian artistes including Ruggedman, D Banj, Pasuma, Weird MC, P Square etc, took turns in bar tending. The event which took place on Saturday Dec 23rd 2007, at the Ocean View Restaurant. According to the guests, each artiste was assigned to a bar, strategically located at different corners of the hall with their names on it. They were made to act as bar men, serving the guests drinks. It was quite funny as the guests went to their favorite artistes, ordering them around to serve them drinks of their choice.
Nice concept huh?

Will bring you more later. Got to get to bed, I'm a bit tired.

Can't be bothered about 2face anymore abeg. Once an hausa man, always an hausa man. He should just put his personal issues behind closed doors. Very annoying.

As for Eedris, i saw dat performance on tv, and IMO it's like he was showing off his rhyming skills and trying too hard.

Dat Soundcity event sounds like a great concept o. It'll be nice to see and know who sold d most drinks. Dat would've been a laugh.

Don't have anything to say about the pregnant girl; I guess we are all as clueless as u are.

The 2face and Pero story is a bit of a put off (had nothing to do c u BTW). I'm trying not o be judgmental but the dude remains responsible for Annie broken heart and if she's (Annie) still in the 'building' after 2face's numerous runs then maybe Pero should admit to nailing a rep as 2face's professional babymama, not the lady for the aisle. *hisses*

D'Banj is sexy, on fiyah!!!

Tuface is in a world of his own. I best think he should be allowed to do whatever it is as long as he is handling his business well. Remember; it takes two to tango. They are all mature adults.

Funlola is da bomb!!! Very mature and classy. I like her. I am glad that she won, she deserves it. I give her credit.

Linda keep giving it to us, complete, no chaser ... lol!

Did i forget Soul E or what? He too is on fiyah!!!
