Most gifted rap list; rappers Godwon and Sinzu come at each other

You know, everyday I pray that celebs give me something to write about...lol. So rapper Godwon wasn't happy that his name was not included in NotJustOk's list of the Top 10 Most Gifted Rappers in Nigeria, and instead of taking it like a soldier, he took to twitter to diss some of the other rappers on the list. He called Sinzu a bitch. Ouch! Sinzu replied him. See their tweets and Godwon's opinion of other rappers in Nigeria, after the cut...

NotJustOk's list of Top 10 Most Gifted Rappers - who agrees with it?

Music website NotJustOk yesterday released a list of their Top 10 Most Gifted Rappers in Nigeria and placed Olamide as the second best rapper in Nigeria after Modenine. See the list below...

1. Modenine
2. Olamide
3. Phyno
4. M.I
5. Sinzu (Sauce Kid)
6. ShowDemCamp (SDC)
7. Ice Prince
8. Vector
9. Naeto C
10. Reminisce

Personal opinion and with all due respect to other rappers in Nigeria, but I think M.I is in a class of his own. I think he's not just the best rapper in Nigeria, he's the best rapper in Africa. Like, he's not even on anyone's level. He shouldn't even be on this list. We should be comparing M.I to Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar and the likes and not Olamide or Phyno. That's my personal opinion. What do you think of the list? Who agrees with it? Some Nigerian rappers don't. See their tweets after the cut.

"I’ve spent an hour daily reading dictionaries in the last 20 years" - Patrick Obahiagbon

You guys need to read this hilarious interview grammarian and current Chief of Staff to the Edo State Governor, Patrick Obahiagbon granted to Punch. Excerpts below...
Why do you always speak ‘big grammar’?
I am not really consensus ad idem with those who opine that my idiolect is advertently obfuscative. No no no, it’s just that I am in my elements when the colloquy has to do with the pax nigeriana of our dreams and one necessarily needs to fulminate against the alcibiadian modus vivendi of our prebendal political class. 
How did you start speaking in this manner? 
It all happened when my father brought me a teaser which stated that good orators had ruled the world and you must have to be a feisty orator if you must rule the world. As an impressionable young man, I alacritously threw myself into the whirligig of improving my usage of words by amassing new words on a daily basis.

Rihanna spotted leaving A$AP Rocky's hotel room the morning after

Rihanna has moved on to A$AP Rocky? Thought he was seeing model, Chanel Iman? Rihanna was caught making the walk of shame leaving his hotel wearing the same clothes from the night before...

From The Daily Mail
Most stars make an effort to recycle. And Rihanna certainly seems keen to do her bit - by recycling her clothes.
The 25-year-old was spotted leaving the hotel of her rumoured new boyfriend rapper A$AP Rocky in Chelsea, New York on Thursday morning, wearing the same pair of thigh-skimming denim hot pants she had worn the night before.
 Looking cheery, Rihanna teamed the Daisy Dukes with a floral bucket hat, a long-sleeved black and white top and simple black sandals as she made her way to a photographic studio.
Rihanna really knows how to get her men. A few months ago, Chris Brown tweeted "How can she be mine when she's everyone else's?". Was rooting for Drake tho...

FFK withdraws intimate relationship comment about Bianca Ojukwu

A week after Bianca Ojukwu threatened to sue him for claiming in an article he wrote a few weeks back that he had an intimate relationship with her, former Minister Femi Fani Kayode has withdrawn the comment.

He released the statement below through his lawyer, Rotimi Akinola, yesterday
“As our client said earlier through his press secretary some of the words he used to describe his friendship with Ambassador Ojukwu in his article titled 'A Word For Those Who Call Me A Tribalist” were indiscreet. He hereby withdraws those words
"They were good friends at the time and they had a few mutual friends who are still alive today. The bizarre, absurd and inexplicable assertion that they were not friends and that Ambassador Ojukwu has never met our client is patently false. Though he has not seen her for over 25 years he spoke to her on the phone when her husband passed on last year"
So if he's withdrawing the comment, it means he never dated her, bah? So why write it?

George Zimmerman's wife files for divorce

Less than months after he was acquitted of murdering Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman's wife has filed for divorce. 26 year old Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce just yesterday, a week after she pleaded guilty to a perjury charge for lying during a bail hearing following her husband's arrest in Feb 2012. She lied about the couple's assets when her husband was trying to be released on a lower bond. Shelley was sentenced to a year's probation and 100 hours of community service.

Shelley said in an interview with 'Good Morning America' last week that she was having serious doubts about remaining married to George, not because she didn't believe he acted in self defense, but because she was just disappointed. She also said they lived in hiding while awaiting his trial.
"We have pretty much lived like gypsies for the past year and a half. We've lived in a 20-foot trailer in the woods, scared every night that someone would go and find us and that it would be horrific," she said.
She also told ABC she is deeply sorry for the Martin family's loss. "I can't even begin to understand the grief a parent experiences when they lose a child," she said. Shelley and George married in 2007 and had no children.

Super Eagles striker, Ahmed Musa's family attacked by armed men

Eleven armed men stormed the family home of Super Eagles striker, Ahmed Musa, in Jos yesterday Wednesday September 4th. Fortunately he wasn't home as he is currently camped in Calabar with other team mates ahead of the Nigeria-Malawi encounter for the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

According to what Ahmed told the press today, the armed men stormed his home around 8:30pm last night, and demanded for his wife and son. Fortunately his wife and son had traveled earlier to Kano. When the men didn't get Musa's wife and kid, they turned to his other family members, beating them mercilessly. Fortunately no one was killed but the men went away with valuables.

Musa's mum had to be treated in the hospital for injuries she sustained during the robbery incident. He said his family is doing well now.
