Goodluck to all nominees.
They say P-Square’s new album, Game Over, has sold over 1.5 million copies since it was released about three weeks back. I.5 million? They say the first 100, 000 copies was bought by Obaino Music at the rate of N50 per CD and he sold everything at the rate of N55 in less than one hour. The second batch that arrived the second day, 900, 000 copies, was sold in less that six days. More copies have been printed and sold…total 1.5 million? Pls don’t doubt this story, in a country of over 140 million people…1.5 is possible. Congrats to them.
Rumour has it that Daystar Christian Center overseer, Reverend Sam Adeyemi, will soon take delivery of a multi-million naira private jet. They say he just ordered a SAAB 300 luxury 16 seater jet, worth millions of naira. He needs the jet to spread the gospel across the globe.
Pasuma honoured. Popular fuji musician Wasiu Alabi Pasuma just turned 40. A lavish birthday party was held for him yesterday at All Seasons Plaza, Ikeja and artistes like Adewale Ayuba, Weird MC, Olu Maintain performed. Since watching Passo on celebrity takes 2, I’ve fallen inlove with him. Such a character. lol.
A naked Brad Pitt. Yum indeed!

R Kelly is at it again…with little girls. His publicist just quit! Because Mr Kells is…?…her 19year old daughter. That’s the girl pictured with him above. Seriously, hasn’t this guy learnt anything? In Naija we say ‘na wa o’!
Usher and Tameka Foster welcomed a baby boy Monday night. Congrats to the couple. What I love most about the picture is the look on Tameka’s face..if looks could kill, that chic would be dead…lol! ‘Get off my man you b…h’? could she have been thinking that? lol

Akon will face criminal charges after his crowd tossing incident back in June. Akon body-slammed some kid from the crowd at Fishkill-based WSPK (104.7 FM)’s annual KFEST concert at Dutchess Stadium in New York. A girl was injured and suffered from a concussion, and now Akon must appear in a Fishkill, NY court Monday morning for arraignment.
He’ll just be charged with a misdemeanor for endangering the welfare of a minor and second-degree harassment.
Linda Hogan, Hulk Hogan’s wife of 25years has filed for divorce from the wrestler. That’s sad!
Also, I hear one of my favourite rockers of all time, Bryan Adams and one of my favourite models of all time, Elle Macpherson, are dating. I hope it’s true. They’ll rock together.
That’s all for today…I’m serious, I’ll spoil you guys with blogging this weekend…just to make up for the absense…hopefully you won’t beg me to stop…lol.
See y’all tomorrow. Kisses!
