Video: Tonto Dike’s Interview on Coolfm

 

The sad issue of sexual harassment in Nollywood is not going away anytime soon. In a recent chat, popular actress, Rita Edochie gave a new insight into the dirty game.

Nigerian twin brothers Peter and Paul Okoye known as P Square, delivered a solid performance in front of 35 000 screaming fans at the Glamis Arena in Harare. The show was sold out and many fans sadly had to be turned away.

Where other foreign musical acts like Sean Kingston and Mr Vegas flopped in Zimbabwe, the ‘Chop my Money’ and ‘Beautiful Onyinye’ hit makers did not disappoint. Now you see why they were signed onto a partnership deal by Akon’s Konvict Muzik label?

The duo who performed with the aid of a live band, opened their act with their hit song “Temptation” before their churned out their popular hits like “Give Me That”, “Story” and “I Love You”. After almost two hours of performing the duo closed their well-choreographed act with their newest hits “Chop My Money” and “Beautiful Onyinye”.

Perhaps wary of wild allegations making the rounds especially after their very successful Zimbabwe showing, Peter  Okoye has taken to twitter to dismiss rumors of their Illuminati membership – the second time in a fortnight that popular Nigerian artistes will have to deny their success to the exclusive secret society.

Success doesn’t happen over night. And we worked so hard for it. God made it possible #TeamPsquare

Yes I will say it again and again. We are really blessed by God not by illumi shit!(Devil)

My hairstyle

I don’t wear dreadlocks, it is just my natural hair that you are seeing. I twist it and loose it when I choose to. I do not fix a weave-on because it is artificial. I carry my hair most of the time, except when I have to attach something else to it.

Banky W: ‘I’m not GAY’!

Nigerian R&B singer, Banky W has reacted to the ongoing rumours about his sexuality.

The EME label boss mentioned this during an interview he granted to Y! Magazine, saying‘It’s hilarious to me and completely false. I’m not GAY. Maybe it’s because I’m not married, and I practice safe sex and thus have no children yet.’

Speaking on his political ambitions, he confessed his desire to constantly throw his weight behind candidates he believes in, since he can’t run for office himself ‘…our constitution states that you have to have been born in Nigeria to qualify. I wasn’t, so I don’t qualify anyway. I figure my time will be better spent throwing as much support behind candidates that I feel should be the ones leading the country’, he said.

Banky W and his label mates recently released an all-star album titled ‘Empire Mates State of Mind’ and are currently on a U.S tour that will end on Sunday, September 2, 2012.
