THAT ELEGUSHI'S CLOSE TO N200 MILLION NAIRA HUMONGOUS ROLLS ROYCE

OBA SAHEED ADEMOLA ELEGUSHI

THE KING & HIS QUEEN

It's the season of ROLLS ROYCE or so it seems. Every liquid man worth his salt seems bent on acquiring one or two or three as a standard to separate the boys from the men!

There are the likes of the great, super stylish Otunba Michael and Olasubomi Balogun, who we hear has a few in his fleet, some have even speculated between 3 & 5 both in Nigeria and abroad.

Just like the Mercedes G63 wagon, which is gradually tending towards becoming "pure water" in Nigeria, which everyone who has a sizeable bank account and investment now sees as a must have to declare their positions, very soon that class act of a car-the Rolls Royce, known all over the world might soon become a prerequisite too.

Imagine that we saw one very recently at a lounge, where the owner and friend came to, to have drinks while eating Nkwobi!

For those very very liquid, one of the ways to differentiate levels now is not having the gradually going common G63 wagon ($150,000 dollars) that's close to N60 million Naira, so to distinct clearly men from boys, seriously made men now do G65 ($360000 dollars) that's more than N140 million plus, which is nearly thrice the cost of the G63, you need to know for you to know the difference.

So also in the Rolls Royce class, there are boys and there are bigger men. In the class of bigger men is that one owned by his royal majesty, the Elegushi of Lagos, Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi, Kusenla III aka Gushi 1, the nickname those close to him, prefers, but that they pronounce as "Gucci".

THE HOUSE OF GOD IS NOT THE HOUSE OF JOKE

video
Chose O' Israel who your God is today, is the God or is it Belial?

We came across the video above by a pastor of a church and we thought it was great and good for us to watch and then respond.

The main thrust of his strong message, which many who understands would refer to as strong meat is that "the house of God, that is church is been brought to ridicule" & that the altar is been desecrated. Some who don't understand spiritual matters would be quick, to poo poo or belittle what the man has voiced out. In this era of conformity and blending, cracking jokes in the church is seen as nothing, some even claims that God is a joker! A very absurd and terrible thing to say about God, for it denotes unseriousness.

The times we are living in now is supposedly the era of grace, so some things are supposedly allowed especially, many of those things considered as sacred is now brought so low. To not conform is seen as being stiff.

The pastor went on to buttress his points, asking if any comic/comedian can go to the shrine of Osun the water goddess or the mosque or a place where the Moslems worship to be cracking jokes?

It is that time as a Christian that those who profess to be one, need to carry their flags? They need to speak out and show on which side of the divide that they are standing on?

Is this like the call made by Moses at a time on Israel that afterwards judgement came immediately, when Korah, Dathan and Abiram did what was despicable?

Whose side are you on?

What's your sincere thought about what the pastor has raised?  

Should comedians be performing in churches ? 

HAJIA BOLA SHAGAYA AND THAT HUMONGOUS GIFT TO THE EMIR

EMIR MUHAMMADU SANUSI II

BOLA SHAGAYA

KOLA KARIM
There's nothing like having good friends, especially made ones at that, those that are dependable and can be relied upon at anytime. An old saying of the sages even spoke about friends/friendship when it said show me your friends and I can tell you, the kind of person you are. In terms of friends, when it comes to the lady of timber and caliber, in the person of Hajia Bola Shagaya, she has always had them and they are always the very powerful and the highly influential, always occupying positions of extraordinary importance.

We remember very well that during the reign of Dr. Goodluck Ebele Azikwe Jonathan, his wife Madam Peace Jonathan and the very stylish businesswoman of great repute, were the best of friends. According to the unconfirmed legend, it was even Hajia that used to take the former first lady then, to the best of places to do her shopping around the world. Same way Mma Bakassi, Senator Florence Ita-Giwa and the richest black African woman on earth, Mrs. Folorunsho Alakija have a chummy relationship too, and gets to fly around the world together on trips to Lebanon and other exotic places.

But immediately after that government was sent packing by the current incumbent, madam (Hajia) recoiled back into her shell and quietly kept her distance especially away from unnecessary razzmattazz, making a few to feel at a point that she might have been facing some hard times.

THE EVENT THAT SPARKED THE FIRE
OLOWO EKO, OBA OF LAGOS

The report on the snub of the Ooni of Ife, Adimula Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi by the Oba of Lagos, the Olowo Eko, Oba Rilwan Akiolu met a lot of very negative reaction, with many voicing their heartfelt opinions and some openly castigating the Oba of Lagos for bad judgement and outright disrespect of a very revered stool.

In an attempt at explaining what actually happened on the day, and by extension debunking the stories of any FEUD or disrespect of any kind, the Oba of Lagos's representative's explanations has raised more questions than answers.

TOP THESPIAN CELEBRATED MARRIAGE ON THE VERGE OF COLLAPSE

It was a very much publicised union that was well celebrated on the pages of the papers and very well reported on the social media sometime ago, with much pomp and pageantry, but alas according to what we hear now, it is already on the verge of collapse, except something very drastic is done about it and quickly too for that matter! And this is just in how long????

According to a particular gist, the marriage itself in the first instance was stage managed! Thespian while married was seen in private, in very very cosy relationship with that top very married government official known to always have dalliances with the hottest chics in town.

Maestro's Media: OBAS AT WAR. OBA OF LAGOS VS. OONI OF IFE.

OBAS AT WAR. OBA OF LAGOS VS. OONI OF IFE.


OONI OF IFE

OBA OF LAGOS

The two are known as 1st class kings of repute, especially as the stool they represent are highly revered. The Ooni, being the Obaluaye of Ife is respected as the overall king of kings in the South Western part of Nigeria, he is so well respected that other kings from the South West accord him the 1st position in their hierarchy, this is by virtue of history and the importance accorded to the stool he occupies.

The Oba of Lagos, also referred to as the Olowo Eko (the rich one of Lagos) also occupies a note worthy stool too. By virtue of him being the paramount ruler amongst the kings in the state alone, that stands him out.

Whilst the Ooni Adimula stool is occupied by a former businessman in the person of Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, who is in his 40s, kabiyesi the Oba of Lagos, is a retired AIG of Police, in the person of Oba Riliwan Akiolu, known for his no nonsense attitude and approach,.....who says and acts it, as he sees it and he is not known for comprise all.

So at an occasion yesterday, where Oba Rilwan Babatunde Akiolu and the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Nnanyelugo Alfred Nnaemeka Achebe were already seated. In comes, the Ooni, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi. Normally because of who he is and being the paramount ruler of the Yorubas, his entrance is always heralded by much razzmattaz and dazzling display of praise and colours which always adds pomp to his entrance. This well practised, choreographed entry ritual could and might intimidate others who normally do not have such displays often; coming in the Ooni did what was considered right, as he went to acknowledge the other royal fathers already seated, only for the Oba of Lagos, to totally dismiss the highly revered Ooni with a wave of the hand, like a nobody!

Shock, embarrassment and shame all fought and jostled for attention immediately.  And this was played out in public! What could have warranted such open display of disdain? Could the Oba of Lagos have felt that he was upstaged or what? Was there already a lingering tussle of any kind between the 2 before? Or could it have been that the Oba of Lagos, feels that the kind of prominence enjoyed by the Ooni, and the respect from around the world since he rose to the throne, from all over the seems too much? Has there been an encounter before that warranted such a display?

Even if there was any at all, that they both are prominent royal fathers of note, couldn't the more elderly Oba of Lagos in his 60s have dealt with it with more decorum and in private?

The questions above and many others are the types that have since sprung up since the unroyal and unpalatable actions of Oba of Lagos. Many already feels that it's an open display of the desecration of a highly revered throne and crown.

One hopes that the elders in the land, would quickly come together to resolve the issues before they escalate further.

THE LEGEND OF THE GODFATHER REVISITED




We all know who this platform normally refers to as the godfather. This extraordinary, the Kogi born deep pocket was one personality that showed all other rich and famous in the country what wealth or better still a colossal amount of money in the hands of an enjoyable fellow could do.

Many ladies, for he had his spec, enjoyed his great largesse and favour and became millionaires in their own right for it. The testaments to his goodwill liters here and there and they are not consigned to the African continent alone.

Legend had it then, that when the going was still extremely good (though still okay), that was before this particular so called "wizard-hunting" government came into power to start scrutinizing and investigating everything, whenever the godfather moves, he moved then with several bales of cash in hard currency- Pounds, Dollars, Euros in bags and with intimidating security personnel to guard him. Shuttling in any of the several private jets available to him across the continents. When the elements were still gathered in support of the godfather, to mention Naira then in his company, was like showing your status.

When the godfather enters a store, a lounge, an hotel or just about anywhere, it was like Christmas day had come earlier than it should and the whiff of raw cash makes everyone go gaga turning them to potty in his hands.

To buttress our point more effectively, the godfather was in America at a point and met that very famous stunning lady, that is a major feature in that reality television series in America, with the awesome body. He found out upon introduction that, apart from appearances on the series, she was also into event management to augment her earnings. So they exchanged contacts.

UNLEASHING CY THE RAMPANT! THE EVOLUTION OF YOUNG GULLIBLE DAMSEL

Imagine that the damsel we are introducing to you is as gorgeous as they come. One of the very best way to describe her is that she's stunningly beautiful and she knows it, in fact she would win a beauty contest hands down any day.

Wherever she goes and even in the midst of other beautiful and sexy ones, she always manages to stand out. She's always the cynosure of all eyes. And because of the attention she gets, she revels in it, swims in it and enjoys it with abandon.

Cy is a shortened version of her name, still in her 20s and a graduate at that. She's very stylish and sexy just to add to the whole aura of attraction, like some would say, she knows what the time says.

As expected of Ugoma Adegoke, the boss at Zebraliving and the convener of the annual gathering of super talented women known by all as "Woman Rising"; which is a music concert and arts weekender, packaged as a series of events with spotlight on musical and creative/artistic women, aimed as a networking platform, this year's event packaged a major punch and razzle dazzled as usual, like it has always done.

It was as colourful as expected, very fun in all ramifications, with many gorgeous and stylish ladies in attendance and a few very hunkish men in tow, to give their other halves supports, while some just came along to have good fun too, it actually delivered on all counts.

The series of events was over 2 days, Saturday and Sunday, April 8 & 9, 2017, at 2 exclusive but different venues, The Wheatbaker Hotel & Federal Palace Hotel, both on the island, Ikoyi & Victoria Island to be more precise.

There was good music in abundance, fun chit-chats, good skits/comedy as provided by the incredible Chigurl and all round great entertainment. This 2017 edition was the 7th in the series.

One of the guests at the event was PR impressario and author Toni Kan, who also is the editor-in-chief at Sabinews. Some of the others we saw were the likes of Herbert Wigwe, MD/CEO of Access Bank Plc, the hunk known and better addressed as RMD, the super talented duo of Lala Akindoju & Chigurl as compere and comedienne, Ego Boyo and very many others.

Check out the incredible pictures of the happenstance as taken by the duo of Adesokan and Anazia, below.

Kudos to the convener, the super gorgeous and good hearted Ugoma Adegoke, for another excellent event, which continues to get better and better every year. So 2018, here they come.
