Fabulous Life of Rich Nigerian Comedians

Written by

BasketMouthWhen comedy started gaining recognition in Nigeria in the 1980s, those on the scene then would rather prefer to lean more on the business side of Mastering a Ceremony (MC) than mainly cracking jokes.

The likes of Mohammed Danjuma of blessed memory, Ali Baba, Ibokoko, Barsorge, Agoma, Alarm Blow, and a few others were those who saw it all.

However, at the time when everyone thought it scornful to be addressed as a comedian but would prefer the MC tag, Ali Baba came up courageously and creatively in the late 80s/early 90s, and subsequently changed history by pioneering stand-up comedy.

TBo-TouchComplaints that remarks on a Metro FM current affairs show encouraged xenophobia have been dismissed by the Broadcasting Complaints Commission of SA (BCCSA).

"In the result we could not find any contravention of the code and the complaint is, accordingly, not upheld," the BCCSA said in its judgment this week."

The tribunal found that although some of the comments hinted at xenophobia, they did not amount to the advocacy of hatred and there was no incitement to cause harm.

"The BCCSA received complaints from listeners, referred to only as Siguague and Mathebula, that the presenter of "The Touchdown" programme made derogatory remarks after a Nigerian artist failed to turn up for an interview.

Air-Travel- In-NigeriaNigeria’s Lagos and Abuja routes are the most lucrative destinations for airlines operating in Africa due to the high load factor that even rivals developed markets like New York.

The west African country load factor is usually high from top to bottom meaning that the first and business classes in these airlines fill up first before the economy. This makes it one of the best destination for premium airlines such as British Airways, Emirates, Virgin Atlantic, Air France, KLM, Delta Air Lines and Lufthansa.

“This is a Nigerian phenomenon, which is a class conscious environment. And this is one of the major reasons why Nigeria is a very lucrative route,” Travel expert, Ikechi Uko, told This Day Live.

Jay Z-_Beyonce-and_SolangeA video making rounds of Beyonce's sister Solange attacking Rapper Jay Z has been obtained by posted by TMZ in their website.

According to our sources, it all went down at a Met Gala after party last week at the Standard Hotel in NYC. In the video … Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange step into the elevator … and then Solange goes crazy, screaming at Jay before unleashing a violent attack.

A large man — who appears to be a bodyguard — attempts to hold Solange back, but she manages to connect at least 3 times. At one point Solange throws a kick and Jay grabs her foot, but never attempts to strike her. Beyonce stands by without getting physically involved.
