Adekunle Gold dedicates new video to his late sister.

Nigerian singer, Adekunle Gold has revealed that he dedicated his new music video ”ire” to his late younger sister, Busayo. He shared a picture of the lady and narrated how she was almost like his twin sister cos she was always clinging to him. He also spoke of how much of a good singer she was before she died of heart complication.

Read his words below.

“For Busayo”
Who is Busayo
I’ve been getting this question a lot. Busayo is my sister. We lost her in 2011 to a Heart Complication. I’m fiercely protective of my family but I didn’t think I could skip out one of my favorite memories or people in life. 
Busayo was symbolically represented by the little girl skipping around me in the video as that is who she was in real life. 
She never left my side, matter of fact, she was my younger twin. We looked alike and she could sing for the whole of AFRICA. 
In my heart, I believe I sing for the both of us; It was only right that I dedicated the video to her memory…

Recently, the singer was asked about how his girlfriend copes with him getting so many attention from the opposite sex, he said, ”She understands the nature of my job but sometimes, she asks questions. I like to keep my relationship away from the public. What if my girlfriend doesn’t want to be in the limelight? I think people like me because of my music, not because of what I do in my private moments’.

On whether he has plans to have a baby mama, Adekunle Gold said, ”I don’t want that for myself. It will be a disgrace to my family if I have a child born out of wedlock. I can only speak for myself. I was not brought up that way”.


President Muhammadu Buhari has explained why he ejected the proposed bill establishing Peace Corps of Nigeria.

Buhari’s explanation was contained in a letter read during plenary on Tuesday by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.

In the letter, Buhari cited security concerns and financial burden of funding the organisation by the government as his reasons for rejecting the bill.

The National Assembly had in 2015 passed the bill after a prolonged battle involving the organisation and the nation’s security agencies.

Ex-Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has been banned from football for six months because of a drip treatment he took at a Los Angeles clinic in 2016, his lawyer said.

Nasri, 30, took the treatment while on holiday, but it contravened World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) rules leading to a Spanish Anti-Doping investigation.

Nasri’s lawyer told BBC Sport the suspension was being imposed by Uefa.

Reports in Spain have suggested the ban will be made public on Monday.

Nasri, who is without a club having left Turkish side Antalyaspor in January, received treatment from a private medical company, Drip Doctors, in his hotel room.

Wada rules state there is a 50 millilitre infusion limit per six-hour period for active athletes but it was alleged he received 500 millilitres of hydration in the form of sterile water containing micronutrient components.

In February 2017, a request by Sevilla for a retroactive therapeutic use exemption (TUE) for Nasri was refused by Uefa, whose decision was later upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Eden Hazard has again hinted he could leave Chelsea, amid interests from Real Madrid and PSG.
The Belgian has been strongly linked with Real Madrid, with PSG also being recently linked with the forward and he has cast doubt in his future at Stamford Bridge by saying he will leave when he wants to leave, even though he maintains he remains happy in London.
In an interview with Belgian outlet Telefoot, he said: “I still have two years left on my contract. I feel very good over here. The fans love me, my family enjoys life over here. We will see.
"In football anything can happen. But in football nothing can happen too. Every year they talk about Real or PSG. And when I want to change clubs, I will. But at the moment I'm good where I am.”
Meanwhile, Real Madrid are also chasing Hazard's compatriot Thibaut Courtois, whose contract expires in summer 2019, although he has previously suggested he could sign a new deal soon.I
The Police Service Commission (PSC) has written a letter to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) directing him to withdraw a recent recruitment advertisement into the Nigerian Police Force (NPF), Daily Trust gathered yesterday.
A source yesterday said the commission wrote the IGP over two weeks ago after the advert was published in newspapers and circulated across the country.
The source raised concerns over the legality of the recruitment process, hinting that the entire process could be challenged in court as recruitment into the Police Force is the responsibility of the commission.
The source said the IGP does not have the mandate to carry out any recruitment into the police. The source further said already the commission is aware that the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari had written the Finance and Budget ministers to review budget proposals made to the commission for the recruitment exercise.
The source said Kyari had requested the two ministers to review the recruitment budget of the commission, recommend funding option and revert on or before today, February 19, 2018.
When contacted yesterday the spokesman of the PSC Ikechukwu Ani refused to comment, but said only the Chairman of the Commission Mike Okiro could speak on the matter.
However, sources familiar with the planned recruitment exercise by the IGP, said recruitment into the rank and file of the police can be done exclusively by the IGP.
The police source said the IGP obtained a presidential approval to carry out recruitment of thirty one thousand police men at the rank of constable for five years.
The source added that the commission is only responsible for recruiting into the officer’s cadre of the Police.
The spokesman of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) Jimoh Moshood could not be reached at the time of filing this report.
Since making his Barcelona debut as a 17-year old in October 2004, Lionel Messi has scored 534 goals for the club and pretty much destroyed any team he has come against.
However, of all the teams the five-time Ballon d'Or winner has come up against, just 12 have been fortunate enough to not feel the wrath of Messi - tonight's opponents Chelsea being one of them.
The Argentine ace has come up against the Stamford Bridge club on eight occasions but in 655 minutes of action, he has failed to get on the scoresheet against the blues; famously missing a penalty in the dramatic 2-2 Champions League semi-final second leg in 2012.

Messi hasn't scored in 8 games versus Chelsea. 655 minutes of action. But then @ChelseaFC fans shouldn't jinx it. Messi has broken non scoring records against other teams and he can do it again. He's a magician.

In terms of the other eleven clubs, Messi hasn't scored against Barca's Catalan neighbours Gramenet and Girona, as well as Spanish sides Real Murcia, Xerez and Cadiz.
In addition, he has drawn blanks against Benfica, Rubin Kazan and Inter Milan in the Champions League, while Messi grabbed an assist, as opposed to a goal, when he played in the 4-0 Club World Cup final win over Saudi outfit Al-Sadd in 2011.
Lionel Messi: Has never scored in 8 appearances against Chelsea -- It's his worst record against a team in his career

Messi has undoubtedly had more difficulty against Chelsea than any other team, but you might not be aware that he also didn't score against Liverpool in two Champions League games against the Reds back in 2007 when Rafa Benitez was in charge.
As Messi can attest to, records are there to broken and he could whittle the list down to ten by the time this weekend is over.

The 30-year old will be looking to end his barren spell against Chelsea in tonight's Champions League round of 16 first leg match, while newly-promoted Girona, also on the list, are Barca's next visitors to the Nou Camp on Saturday.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede was a guest on Ray Power fm’s political and current affairs programme, ‘Political Platform’ where he answered and discussed a wide range of questions.
Speaking on the tendency of candidates to cheat despite reforms he has championed to curtail such, he explained :
“Even when JAMB sets-up rogue centres (to catch cheats), you find that it is these same poor people that you are fighting for, that pay N200,000 and we disqualify such students.”
The professor lamented the way parents facilitate cheating especially “mothers in particular (that are) determined to make graduates of their children at all cost”.
He expressed displeasure at the sensationalism attached to the Snake swallowing N36 million story which he explained is purely criminal and should be treated as such.
The JAMB Registrar also explained that the board is now checking accounts of fraudsters promising ‘miracle centres’ to identify candidates that have paid into those accounts to circumvent the exam process stating that; “we are now disqualifying such candidates”.
He also criticized journalists for not asking poignant questions at important times such as when some dubious officials were selling JAMB scratch card for up to N12,000 instead of N5,200 before he got appointed to the board. Responding to some of his critics who had complained about the billions he returned to government as against previous administrations at the board, he retorted: “I don’t know what they want me to do with government money”.
The major takeaway from this interview has to be that candidates need to prepare and try to pass JAMB examination without cheating because the board is serious about disqualifying cheats who are also liable for criminal prosecution.
