Asake has finally released his single ‘Terminator’ which he said would be dropping this month. After his ‘Mr Money’ single he released a few years ago, he caught a few ears and stayed above water for some time. It seemed like Asake had hung his microphone. But alas, the man’s been reborn, like a musical phoenix.

It’s almost incredible, how Asake has picked the microphone again and has somehow refused to let it go, lighting it up every time he touches it. Kudos may well be given to YBNL boss, Olamide for bringing him out into the open again, to bless the whole public but then, one may be blessed enough to be presented with such opportunity but unfortunately, not do as well as he ought, but not Asake. Fans say he took the time off to go prepare himself for whenever he might get the chance to prove his worth again.

In a space of seven months, he’s done songs with Olamide, Burna Boy and fellow record label artiste Fireboy, who are all big guns in the industry, and all his released songs have been hits. What strikes the most is how quickly he drops his songs, always back to back. He’s got a song for every month since January, 2022 and now, the one for August is here.

‘Terminator’ has been all over various social media platforms since he dropped the teaser last month. He also used that opportunity to announce his album coming in September, Mr Money With The Vibe. His pull is one that has left fans in awe and amazement. ‘Terminator’ is here and Asake really outdid himself on the track.

Following the mass deportation embarked upon by the Dubai authorities, some stranded Nigerians have called on the Federal Government to come to their aid.

Several videos shared online captured thousands of people sitting in an open area with their bags and luggage and could be heard groaning over their current situation.

A lady who spoke in one of the videos expressed displeasure that Nigerians are not being represented in the process.

Narrating their ordeal, the lady questioned if there is a functional embassy or active ambassador in the country.

 

According to her, some of the people who registered for the mass deportation exercise with a valid passport were granted a pass by Dubai authorities but they are still waiting for flights that will convey them back to Nigeria.

She added that those without valid passports are waiting for a temporary pass from the embassy which seems not to be working.

No doubt, the death of Chief Duro Onabule, a veteran journalist and columnist par excellence, was a big blow to the journalism profession in Nigeria. Many of his contemporaries and subordinates agreed that he was a colossus in his chosen career of the pen.

 

Onabule, popularly referred to as ‘Double Chief’ and former Chief Press Secretary to the ex-Military President, Ibrahim Babangida, died on Tuesday at the ripe age of 83. The erudite journalist, whose sudden death jolted the nation’s media space, was said to be in active service, hale and hearty, a few days before his passing.  He breathed his last on the eve of Babaginda’s 81st birthday.  This has left the former President with a sour taste in his mouth.

If he had not died, perhaps, he would have been one of those that would have celebrated the former president. But, alas, that was no more!

 

For those familiar with the life and times of late Onabule, apart from describing him as a reporter’s diary, they said he was a humanist, patriot and detribalised Nigerian, committed to the enthronement of democracy, justice, equity, fairness, sanctity, order and free speech.

His death has attracted several reactions from all walks of life.President Muhammadu Buhari, in a condolence message by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, condoled with the former military leader, the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) and Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE) over the loss.

He noted the commendable contributions of the respected journalist to the development of Nigeria. He particularly lauded him for his role in stimulating robust debates with insightful articles while working variously as Editor of National Concord and Chairman, Board of Directors of Nigerian Television Authority (NTA).

 

Buhari prayed that the almighty God would receive the soul of the departed and comfort his family.

Gen. Babangida, who clocked 81 on Wednesday, in a condolence message he personally signed, said it was a sad irony that Chief Onabule, who was usually among the first to celebrate his birthday, died on the eve of his anniversary. He said his passing will no doubt cast a long shadow over the festivities.

 

He said: “The news of the passing of Chief Duro Onabule came to me as a rude shock. It was a bad birthday gift for me this year; my 81st year on Mother Earth. I didn’t believe the news until I compared notes with a few of my friends who confirmed the sad news. I am downcast wondering why my “triple Chief” didn’t give me a chance to say goodbye.

“Nigeria has lost a colossus, a wordsmith, a walking encyclopedia, a reservoir of knowledge and a rich chronicler of history, whose world view is defined by sheer intellect, content and character. Nigeria has lost Chief Duro Onabule. He was an epitome of what the Yoruba would refer to as “Omoluabi”, due to his spartan lifestyle, discipline, knack for excellence, uncommon patriotism and remarkable and unalloyed loyalty to friends, associates, colleagues and fellow professionals. He was not just my Adviser-in-Chief, he was one of our brain boxes, in and out of office.

“Triple Chief, as I fondly called him, had a rich sense of recall of historical dates, remarkable events and notable landmarks, each time he needed to reflect on our trajectory.

Babaginda further said that aside from being a resourceful writer, who maintained a very didactic column in Daily Sun newspaper till date, Chief Duro was always a delight each time we had to engage in intellectual discourse face to face. His sense of humour was profound. His communication skills were distinctive. His ability to dissect and interrogate issues was second to none. He has historical dates at the tip of his fingers.

“As an avid reader of his weekly column, I learnt so much about subject matters that also helped to assail my understanding of Nigeria’s complexities. While in government, Duro was the first to reach me daily to discuss reports and happenings in the country. He was a Chief Press Secretary par excellence.

“He was a Chief Press Secretary par excellence. He was exemplary. He was punctual and adopted the military way of doing things; especially time management. His rich experience during our time in government helped in no small measure in our decision making processes. He was a nationalist par excellence. He was a dear friend.

 
 
 

“His death has surely left a huge vacuum to fill. He was a quintessential, urbane, patriotic and refined mind whose loyalty was never in doubt. Tripe Chief would be sorely missed.

“In and out of government, he was part of my larger family, who understood the rationale behind most of the decisions we took in government. He was a diligent Nigerian with an upbringing that is worthy of emulation. It is a sad day for me. Nature, in her all-knowing way, has just dealt me a blow with this sullen birthday pill. Even when we all know it is a destination we are all headed to, it hurts to lose such a close friend, with whom I have shared several decades of robust relationship. I will miss him dearly.

Ekiti State Governor  Kayode Fayemi described Onabule’s death as the exit of a great Nigerian who was passionate about the Nigerian nation as well as the journalism profession. He added that Onabule’s death is a great loss to the upcoming generation of journalists who could have learnt a lot from him.

“Chief Duro Onabule was a great and patriotic Nigerian who rose to national prominence through his journalistic work as a celebrated Editor of the now rested National Concord and later as CPS to ex- President Ibrahim Babaginda.

“Chief Onabule as a journalist and public affairs commentator spoke truth to power through his illuminating writings,” Fayemi said.

Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State described the deceased as one of the finest experts of the pen profession, saying the nation will not forget his role as the mouthpiece of the military government of Babangida.

He said that the former editor of the defunct Concord Newspaper would be remembered and missed for his profound comments on national issues, via his column in The Sun Newspaper.

While declaring that the state would always remember the fecundity of Onabule’s pen, the governor commiserated with his immediate family, Ijebu-Ode and the entire state. He prayed for the repose of the soul of the former journalism guru.

In a tribute, The Sun management said this about Onabule: “He was an iconic journalist, great editor and consummate columnist who analysed and treated national issues professionally, intelligently and fearlessly.

“Onabule made journalism proud, serving meritoriously as an editor and proving his mettle as an image manager when he was the Chief Press Secretary to military President, General Ibrahim Babangida.

“He will be missed by journalism. He will be missed by readers who follow his weekly offerings in his Friday column.

“Talking about his column, Onabule was a writer deep in knowledge and history, a columnist who understood the diversity of Nigeria and the role each founding father of the nation played in the evolution of Nigeria. He wrote frankly and with candor. He spared no one who deserved condemnation. Onabule’s death is a big loss to us at The Sun and the nation.”

The ace jounalist was born on 27 September 1939 in Ijebu-Ode. He was an old Grammarian, having attended and graduated from the Christian Missionary School (CMS) Grammar School and the School of Journalism, London. His first media work was as a reporter for the Daily Express in 1961; three years later, he joined the staff of the Daily Sketch. He spent some time with the Daily Sketch before going back to his previous employer, the Daily Express.

In 1969, he served as the London correspondent for the Daily Express. In the mid-1970s, he worked for the Daily Times, rising to become a deputy editor of the Headlines magazine.

When MKO Abiola started the Concord Press, Onabule was appointed features editor, in 1984. He later rose to become the editor of the National Concord.

Onabule died on 16 August 2022, at the age of 83.

“In addition, volume and value of transactions on the platform have been remarkable, reaching above 200,000 and N4 billion, respectively.”

Emefiele disclosed that despite the successes recorded on the initiative, the apex bank, in collaboration with private sector operators, has started the second phase of the e-Naira.

“Notwithstanding this appreciable progress, the second phase of the project has begun and it is intended to drive financial inclusion by onboarding unbanked and underserved users leveraging offline channels. 

“Hence, greater success is envisioned for the project with phase two expected to deliver more gains with a target of about 8,000,000 active users based on estimations using the diffusion of innovation model,” he said.

During Deji’s diary session on Day 24, Biggie gave him a secret mission like with Modella.

 

Big Brother would like Deji to start frantically complaining about his Level one housemates until the situation escalats.

The handsome hunk is expected to not only complain about his Level one housemates, but should state that he feels that his happiness will only be possible if he moves to Level two.

 

On Friday, he should pack his bags and demand to be moved to Level two. Biggie also gave him creative freedom on how to navigate the secret task.

 
 

On Day 25, Deji and Doyin were in the bedroom where Deji proceeded to put his secret task in motion. He started complaining about his fellow housemates’ rowdiness and told Doyin that he wanted to go to Level two.

 

He said that he is used to living by himself even though he is from a polygamous family.

 

“I’ve grown uncomfortable in Level one and could do with a change of scenery. The fights, and being in everyone’s face the whole time, is taking a toll on me and I would prefer to be in Level two,” he said.

Doyin tried to talk him out of his decision by saying that the situation in Level two is not better, since Amaka confided in her about wanting to be swapped to Level 1, because her Level two Housemates are constantly fighting. She advised Deji to ask Biggie for a switch over, but cautioned him against being ungrateful. “You have to find a way to make the most of being in Level 1 because you are not guaranteed a better experience in Level two.”

The owners of Manchester United, Glazer family, are set to sell part of their stake to reduce their control over the English Premier League club after Elon Musk joked about buying the team.

Glazer family are reportedly willing to sell 49% stake to interested investors, as calls for their exit grows among Manchester United fans due to their struggle in the EPL and inability to attract top players.

 

According to a Bloomberg report, the 49% represents a minority stake, with the Glazer family maintaining their majority control in Manchester United, which they acquired in 2005.

The sell could see the club raise as much as £2.4 billion, although Manchester United’s current market valuation on the New York Stock Exchange is estimated around $2.23 billion.

Glazer’s intention to sell comes amid Musk’s disclosure that if there’s any sport team he was willing to buy, it would be Manchester United.

The world’s richest man made this known shortly after joking that he was buying the EPL club.

“if it were any team, it would be Man U. They were my fav team as a kid.” He wrote on social media platform, Twitter.

In an Instagram post on Monday, the movie star shared a before and after photo of herself, showing how much weight she has shed.

Eniola Badmus Shares Stunning Pictures

 

“Was not an easy journey. I went through a lot,” she wrote in the post showing off her new body.

 

 

The film star had always talked about shedding weight and getting a slimmer body.

In 2020, she dared people who sell weight-loss products to use her as a project if they are confident in their product’s efficiency.

In June, Badmus dismissed rumours that she went under the knife to get her new body.

She also slammed an Instagram user who alleged that she had once admitted to undergoing weight loss surgery.

 

“Keep quiet and stop lying,” she slammed the user.

Badmus has received massive reception and recognition since she joined the movie industry in 2008.

The actress has featured in several indigenous and English films. She has also won several awards in the course of her career including ‘Best Actress of the Year (Yoruba)’ in 2014.

Soul singer Timi Dakolo has tackled ‘religious fanatics’ over the framed image hung on their walls, presumed to be Christ.

The singer, in a tweet, emphasised that the framed image was of an actor and certainly not Jesus Christ.


He argued since the white man who they steadfastly look up to isn’t Christ, he certainly can’t save them.


“Jesus Christ is not that white man you framed and hung on the wall. That guy is an Actor, he can’t save you,” Dakolo tweeted.
