Published

on

Thin Tall Tony’s wife, Laraba has forgiven his husband, TTT as he is also known despite all that happened in the Big Brother Naija House during his 56 day stay in the House. After giving him a warm embrace, she went a head to thank fans who stood by him while he was in the House.
In her post which she captioned “Positive Vibes Only”, she maintained that TTT is an amazing man, husband and father despite the fact that he denied her and their kids over and over again during his stay in BBN and also publicly made  out with fellow house mate Bisola.
Born Offiong Edet Anthony, Thin Tall Tony, who was evicted from the house on Sunday, came back to Lagos on Tuesday, March  21. His quest for the N25 million ended on Sunday after he  got the least vote in an eviction battle against Debie Rise, Efe and T. boss.
Bally, T. Boss and Thin Tall Tony were the initial nominees for eviction by fellow housemates until House leader, Bassey saved Bally and replaced him with Efe, Mavis put Debie Rise up for nomination using her power card.
During the diary season last Wednesday, Big Brother Naija, offered Thin Tall Tony who was up for eviction, one million naira to quit the show, but the dancer refused the offer out of confidence that he will win the show. He backed the rejection up by saying one of his life policy is not to quit on something, anything.
Though everyone expected Bisola to be sad after her lover TTT was evicted, but no one knew she was going to turn into a cry-cry baby for him. Tony’s eviction was met with surprise by many Nigerians, but many were shocked to see Bisola cry uncontrollably for him. She even went on to reveal to Efe that she missed him and his light skin.
Thin Tall Tony is a Nigerian born Dance Artiste, actor and acclaimed choreographer. He performed in the first edition of Big Brother Naija and has since expanded into acting, writing and poetry. He is a self confessed team player who believes in winning for all and celebrating good times. He generated many controversies on social media platform after he went unclad in Big Brother Naja 2017. He is married to his wife of three years and has two lovely kids.
Meanwhile, since the inception of Big Brother Naija Reality show, agitations aimed at scraping it have surfaced. While these have been mostly on social media,  Dr. Olusola Omoju has taken the case to court. The medical doctor who believes the show is jeopardizing his efforts in bringing up his children in a moral way, is seeking an injunction that restraints the broadcast of the show on DSTV and GOTV.
Dr. Olusola alleges that multi- choice introduced Big Brother Naija channel, aired adverts for the reality shows which promotes indecency, immorality, obscenity and included it on his bouquet without his consent. That as a result of the inclusion in his bouquet, his family members nd other dependants became avid watchers of the reality show and are now being influenced negatively through the continued broad cast of the show.
He agrees that multi-choice usually introduces a special code to enable subscribers choose whether they want access to show or not, but adds that this practice was not continued this year.

Reno Omokri Writes Open Letter To BBNaija Enthusiasts

Published

Reno Omokri has written an open letter to BBNaija enthusiasts.
In his letter, the former presidential aide asked ardent followers of the reality TV show to campaign for their businesses as much as they campaign for housemates who do not know them.
His letter reads
‘’Dear #BBNaija enthusiasts,
You see how you campaign for that housemate? Good. Campaign for your success like that. Instead of selling a housemate you don’t know and who does not know you, to me, use that time and energy to sell a product you can profit from to me. Do not be afraid of business or think that it is wrong to make a profit. It is not wickedness for lions to kill and eat antelopes. It is life’s natural order. Don’t be sentimental in business. Set your price competitively. Make your profit. Don’t exploit customers. But dont cheat yourself. A lion that does not kill will itself be killed!’’

A review Of Tiwa Savage’s Water & Garri EP

Published

on

Nigerian multiple award-winning artist Tiwa Savage returns with a brand new extended play “Water & Garri. This comes less than a year after the release of her critically acclaimed third studio album “Celia”.
Water & Garri, a five-track body of work features Grammy Awards winner and veteran rapper, Nas, singer Brandy, the Nigerian underground artist Rich King and Alte singer and soul music stunner, Tay Iwar.
Since her return to Nigeria in 2012, Tiwa Savage has raised the bar for female artists. She embodied the almost frowned on sex symbol attribute in the music industry, her music is filled with flirting words and expressions. No wonder when she called herself African bad gyal, no one disputed the assertion.
Garri is a staple food among Nigerians, water is used to take or make Garri. The title as used in this context refers to her mashed style and global collaboration. She sticks to her heartfelt style in the course of making this album.
Tiwa Savage infused Rnb/Soul with Afro-fusion. The end product is a 19 minutes run of music with themes detailing heartbreak, love, hard work, perseverance, etc.
Nas and Rich King were on the opening track “Work Fada”, the pensive and reflective song preaches hard work and perseverance with Nas almost going preachy in his thought-provoking verse.
The six minutes long track is the perfect opener to the avarde garde album, who opens an EP with this type of lengthy play? Only Tiwa Savage could do such, the theme is distinct and it’s a well-calculated risk.
In 2016, Tiwa Savage’s marriage with talent manager Teebliz hit the rock. Five years later, she seems set to speak her truth. She reveals a little on the Interlude on her last album—Celia. On Water & Garri, Tiwa Savage dedicates two tracks to that ugly incident.
Ade Ori is a soft-light take on past relationships/marriage. She is now independent while she is hopeful about future handling. The lyrics drip with pain and regretful lines.
Tale by Moonlight was a popular weekly storied program on national television. Tiwa Savage details her fairy tale love expectations on this soulful 90s house music. Even though she flirts and gushing about the guy, she is cautious. Amaarae’s whispery vocals compliment Tiwa Savage’s flirt takes.
Seven years ago, American artist Brandy visited Nigeria. At a press conference before her performance at Classic FM Valentine show, she revealed she loved Tiwa Savage’s vocals, she liked it to a 14-year-old. Unknown to her, Tiwa Savage considered the Grammy Winner her role model and one of the reasons she is into music.
When they finally collaborate on “Somebody’s Son”, it is a perfect blend of two songstresses.
They complement one another, Brandy even sings in Yoruba. This track is one of the up-tempo songs on the EP. Its production is filled with Drums and mellow strings. Somebody’s son retains the themes of Ade Ori: it pleads for reciprocal love.
Tay Iwar and Tiwa Savage jointly closed the EP with a rollercoaster of deep expressive expressions. The horn-filled disco makes it sounds like a potential track for a Friday night out.
Veteran producer Pharell Williams called this project a classic but the fans failed to realize his caveat of it not becoming commercially viable. Tiwa Savage is unbothered if her recent promotional talks are anything to go by.
Water & Garri explores Tiwa Savage Rnb/Soul forte with an infusion of Afro-fusion, the EP is a dart between hope and despair. The production is pristine, however, the songwriting is underwhelming.
The featured artists almost overshadowed her. Although it’s obvious that this project is destined for the international market, the collaborations could have been lesser.
