D BANJ & ADAMA INDIMI- IS THIS THAT LOVE TANGO WE HAVE ALL BEING WAITING FOR? maestro's media super exclusive

ADAMA & D BANJ
We got this scoop that something sizzling might be on going between Nigeria's Mr Entertainer , who is also one of Africa's biggest Music Star's- THE ONE,THE ONLY-D Banj and one of the gloriously gorgeous daughters of Maiduguri based Multi-Millionaire, Alhaji Mohammed Indimi, who is also General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida's in-law. So hot is the supposed relationship between Dapo and Adama that some are speculating it might become something more serious.

The main reason many believe something hot and sweet might be going on is related to the tweets between the 2 friends. Adama Indimi who would pass for a beauty queen anyday, is one of the very many daughters of Alhaji Indimi and she is a student at Lynn University, a private co-educational institution in Boca Raton, Florida, USA founded in 1962. Adama and another sister are currently studying in the school, while 3 of her elder sisters have already graduated from the same school.

Back to the gist itself that something might be going on started with this tweet from D'banj kokomaster @iamdbanj on August 13, 2012 - On my way to club icon w/@NaetoC and the crew! 2nyt we drinking 2 celebrate my baby @Presido_Adama happy birthday love!
Looking at it, it could be that Adama is one of his biggest fans. Also as a superstar he would have loads of female friends/fans that he might be calling love. D banj is one star that has being linked with a few other stars- Genevieve Nnaji, Nadia Buari and others, so what's so fantastic about this one then.

Leading up to D'banj's massive London concert on Bank Holiday Monday, August 27, 2012, Adama again tweeted ''Excited''. Another innocent expression, we think, then that was followed on the day after the concert by another tweet ''You make me do happy'' This was followed by pictures of first herself and his dancers backstage, followed by a picture of the supposed love-birds together looking very sweet together. Mind you all Adama flew in to London from either her base in the US or from Nigeria for the concert.

BACKSTAGE AT THE HMV APOLLO,LONDON
On August 29, 2012 she posted this - Happy love, happy laugh, happy soul! And afterwards ''You make me do happy! Twas also on that day, that she posted this - When mumsi said ''I like your new Hannah Montana remix'' and followed it with a picture on instagram. So this allows us to ask the Million dollars question- Is D'banj finally hooked? If so when would it be official?




 

FUTURE AWARDS 2012

Another successful edition of the youth centric annual award has come and gone. This year's edition was in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. Many of the young men and women influencing and helping to shape their worlds for the better were nominated for awards, but like it is said, many are chosen few were given awards.

We think this is the first time, though we are not too sure that the awards ceremony would be shifting from Lagos to another state. Though we were not there personally, we have the pictures of those who were there for your viewing delight. That many flew from Lagos and other parts of the country to be a part of the ceremony, in itself must be commended.

The organizers must also be commended for staying true to their dreams and keeping the ball rolling. We feel it’s a form of encouragement for those aspiring to new heights and it’s a push for those awarded to dig in deeper and do greater things or aspire for newer heights. Check out the event's pictures. The out and about plus the awards presentations.

MOYO MAKANJUOLA IN AMERICA- THE COUNTDOWN BEGINS

What an adorable bump. Some can be so gorgeous when they are preggers, one of those we dare say is Moyo Makanjuola, one of the adorable daughters of Otunba Alex Onabanjo and the daughter-in-law of the Caverton Chairman, Chief Remi Makanjuola, who is married to Bode the Polo loving and playing top executive at Caverton Helicopters. The  boss of Kareema Mak is presently in God's own Country (We think New York) getting ready to pop any moment from now. 

Her very excited sister was so happy a few days ago, that she posted her sister and her bump on the internet excitedly posted at @omodunni saying- Can't wait to be an aunty for the 6th time. We hear the family are all in New York, USA all eagerly awaiting the birth of the new bundle of joy. 
Only a few hours more dear. We wish you well. 
 

JOSEPH YOBO SEALS 1.6 BILLION NAIRA 3 YEARS DEAL WITH FENERBAHCE FC

The good times are back again. Yes! After an uncertain period of time not knowing whether, he was going to go back to England or he would be retained in Turkey. The answer was finally sorted as the much loved Captain of the Nigerian National Football team- The Super Eagles, Captain Joseph Yobo, who is also Nigeria's most capped footballer till date, finally put pen to paper and sealed a 3 years deal with the Nos 1 team in the Turkish League- Fenerbahce Fc of Turkey. According to our bird with very large ears, the 3 years deal  would cost the Turkish team in excess of $10Million dollars, which in Naira translate to about N1.6 Billion Naira, that's not all: he is also entitled to another $1Million Dollars in Bonuses per year, this translate to another 160 Million Naira every year for the next 3 years. That's another 480 Million to be added to the 1.6 Billion contract.

From the little we could gather, Fenerbahce paid his former club in England, Everton FC, $2.5 Million dollars to facilitate the full transfer, that had been dragging on for 2 seasons now,this made JY who is referred to as the 'Prince of Istanbul' by the many vociferous fans of Fenerbahce  FC to spend 2 seasons on loan at the Turkish Club before this deal was finally sealed. 

The beauty of the contract signed by JY from what we can gather, is that all the payment is ''TAX FREE'' unlike in the UK where 35% tax is deducted from source from their salaries. So men this is what life should be like.

Congratulations to the great JY. 





D BANJ LOCKS DOWN LONDON

Let's not lie ooooo, we were one of those that was skeptical about this concert. One of the major reasons for that skepticism was that on the same day as the D banj and Friends HMV Apollo lock down was the Africa Unplugged concert, which boasted of some very big names in the music industry-such as Femi Anikulapo Kuti, Tuface Idibia, Iyanya and other heavyweights from other parts of Africa. It was the evening of the Annual Notting Hill Carnival and a day after the P Square London Invasion. So we had thought, the organizers didn't plan well, doing 2 massive concerts on the same date. But alas we were wrong. D banj is D banj any-day. 

A pointer to the fact that D bANJ was going to shock everyone, was the feelers we were getting from some of the people we spoke to prior to the show, who told us categorically that D banj has his own crowd of loyalists who no matter what would throng his show. And true to their words, the venue- HMV Apollo, on Bank Holiday, Monday, August 27, 2012 was filled to capacity. The concert was sold out, packed out and according to many who were there ''it was good money well spent'' '' a totally fantastic time'' etc. He was very well supported by Ikechukwu, Naeto C, K Switch and others. 

Not to lie, D Banj is an entertainer extraordinaire.

According to BHM-
D'Banj's debut UK headline show was excitedly received by a rapturous audience.

Thrilling the audience with a rich repertoire of songs  spanning  his over seven year career, 
D’banj once again woos his audience with sweet ease, showing why, in such a short time, he has become one of Africa’s greatest music ambassadors.

NIGERIAN LADY RAKES UP £10,000 BILL OVER BABY'S BIRTH IN THE UK



wysthenshawe hospital
 An unnamed Nigerian lady is said to have played a fast on one of the top hospitals in Manchester, UK after giving birth to her baby & the total cost to the NHS a whooping £10,000 Pounds. The heavily pregnant lady was said to have arrived in the UK and went straight to the Manchester Airport from where she went directly to Wythenshawe Hospital in Manchester, where she claimed to doctors that she had complications with her pregnancy. She had told the doctors that an ultrasound she had already done before in Nigeria, had revealed complications with her pregnancy and a caesarean was advised. 

She was attended to by 2 midwives, 2 Urology consultants, 2 obstetric consultants, 2 anesthetists and a radiology consultant, a caesarean section was immediately performed and she gave birth to a very healthy baby without any complications whatsoever. Her bill came to about £10,000 and when they sought her information for billing, they hit a brick wall.  According to the little info they had the lady was Harvard trained.

The most insulting aspect of the whole story is what was written about the state of health of Nigeria's health care system- Hear their assessment-
 'Nigeria offers free maternity treatment but the quality of the care is very poor and there is a high mortality rate. A woman there (Nigeria) has a one in 13 chance of dying during pregnancy or childbirth, according to recent statistics'.

Already an Inquiry has being ordered by MPs and the lady has being branded a thief (in their words- effectively stealing from the British Taxpayers). Hear one of the MPs-  
‘This is simply a foreigner choosing to effectively steal off the NHS and the Government should use whatever powers it has to get the money back.’

The hospital in question is particular struggling now because of funds and part of the money normally allocated to the hospital has been cut short by about £17.5 Million Pounds this year.  A Nigerian lady Bimbo Aiyelabola had given birth last year to quintuplets in the UK at the cost of a whooping £200,000 Pounds to the British taxpayers, so added to this new one last week, it has alerted the British Government to a trend they wouldn't want to allow to continue.
