Buhari’s Ministerial List: 33 Nominees Fail Corruption Test

Details about why President Buhari has failed to
announce his ministers have emerged.
President Muhammadu Buhari
Nigerian Tribune reports that the delay in the unveiling of
the much-awaited ministerial list after President
Mohammadu Buhari’s two months in office is connected to
the fact that about 33 nominees were found to be linked to
malfeasance, fraud and misappropriation of funds.
While only three out of the 36 nominees successfully
passed, it came as a shock to know that 33 nominees
shortlisted by the president failed the corruption test
which was based on security reports. It was revealed to
Nigerian Tribune that the nominees penciled in and those
submitted by the All Progressives Congress (APC) hierarchy
were subjected to scrutiny by the DSS, EFCC, ICPC, CBN,
the Force Criminal Investigations Department (FCID), and
the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) for forensic
screening. However, the results came as a huge
disappointment to the president who planned to have a
corruption-free administration.

The president was held spellbound by the height of some
of these nominees who did not pass the corruption test.
This made the president to reschedule a new date in
September for the submission of his list of ministerial
nominees to the Senate for approval. This new list that the
president will come up with would have passed the
integrity huddle.
A source said: “Buhari has said anybody with skeleton in the
closet will not work with him irrespective of the role he or
she played. If such persons are around him, it means he
may be pressurised to compromise his principled stance”.
“So they are trying to push him to a corner, because the
truth is that they cannot seem to read or understand his
body language. They have now seen that Buhari is ready to
sacrifice anybody for Nigeria to move forward”, the source

Meanwhile, the APC top leaders are reportedly upset over
Buhari’s refusal to name his cabinet members after
spending over a month in power. Some APC leaders are
worried that the president’s delay in constituting a cabinet
may negatively affect the current administration.


D’Banj And Don Jazzy To Reconcile?

Don Jazzy and D’Banj are two big names familiar
to every music lover in Nigeria, the two
entertainers have carved niche for themselves
not only in Nigeria but also the rest of the world.

It is safe to say the two stars are international artistes not
just Nigerian. The duo made headlines with hits in the early
20s and they were adjudged the most popular duo in the

The only big group that can be compared to D’Banj/ Don
Jazzy combination in Nigeria then was P-Square (Still
together). It was a smooth jolly ride for the then Mo’Hits
group headlined by Jazzy and D’Banj before their infamous
split in 2012.

“Fans Mi’ Video Was Promoting Yam Flour” Davido’s Manager Kamal Responds To NDLEA Attack

Last week, National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA)
was reported to be investigating 22-year old HKN Boss
Davido Adeleke for allegedly promoting hard drugs in his
video featuring Meek Mill ‘Fans Mi’. Davido’s manager, Kamal
Ajiboye, has come out to talk on the viral drug trafficking
allegations on OBO. Kamal claimed the idea of what looks
like hard drugs is just to promote yam flour business as a
source of making funds rather than venturing into hard
drugs biz. Read his explanation below.

‘The story is basically to dissuade people from trafficking in
hard drugs. The purpose of the video is to let the audience
know that since some people are making money from hard
drugs, they can also make a lot of money by selling yam
flour . The yam flour was well projected in the video. It was
finally prepared as a meal of pounded yam to be eaten with
vegetable soup in one of the scenes in the same video,’
He concluded that bad belle’s just want to create an
unnecessary controversy around the video and Davido’s
personality and his just amazed why anyone would want to
tarnish Davido’s name in relation to hard drugs.

Is this a good explanation?

New Music: WizKid – Ojuelegba Remix ft. Drake & Skepta

We called it right? When those tweets went out a few days
ago, it raised a lot of eyebrows, and now we have
Ojuelegba Remix from WizKid featuring Drake and
Skepta. Pure fire, and one that’ll definitely get its spins
Word on the street is that Skepta played the song for
Drake while he was on tour in the UK, and the rest is
history. Drake loved the beat, linked up with WizKid, and
then decided to lay on verse on Ojuelegba. Things can be
that easy sometimes you know.
Check on this. WizKid Ojuelegba Remix featuring Drake and
Skepta. Yaga!
