Breaking: Former South African President, Nelson Mandela is dead

I have not blogged for about a month now because this blog is undergoing maintenance and redesigning. But I would definitely not have any genuine reason for not reporting a big news such as the death of Nelson Mandela. There is no way I could have honoured this man other than pausing on everything and blogging his departure. Yes, Nelson Mandela a.k.a Madiba is dead. South Africa’s president, Jacob Zuma announced Mandela’s death at the age of 95.

'Alleged' Play Terrace owner, Captain Iniobong Ekong wants me to give him N500m *LOL* He must be kidding me

I'm sorry guys for staying for a couple of days now without blogging. I was on the plane for about two days where I went to Lagos, then moved to Russia.  I've had many messages on social networks, especially facebook messages from friends and regular visitors of this blog since I arrived here in MOscow. Some of you guys were worried because you said you read in the papers that my life was in constant threat because of the 'rumoured' N500m court case instituted against me by a certain Captain Iniobong Ekong. I quote the rumoured because I never officially confirmed so. Most of you heard from the grapevine. I want to use this opportunity to say, YEs, Captain INiobong EKong is dragging me to court for'alleging' that he owns a popular exclusive lounge located along Aka Road, Uyo, Akwa Ibom. You all could recall that I exclusively scooped the story of how Prince Akpabio misbehaved and molested women at the club, I mean Play Terrace. I wrote the report back in June. Now Captain Ekong felt the story was injurious to him because I mentioned his name as the 'ALLEGED' owner of the club. Underline the word alleged. I have no qualms about that. He is demanding N500m for damages. That's cool. I have no qualms about that. We'll settle that in court. The court will decide if he deserves to go home with the staggering sum. As for my friends and followers of this blog, there is no need to panick. We'll settle it at court. But meanwhile, check out the writ of summons and other documents after the court. Love you all.

iROKING sacks CEO over alleged gross misconduct

iROKING is the sister company to iROKOtv which is both owned by Jason Njoku. Just like iROKOtv is known for Nollywood movies, iROKING was built in line for music. They wanted another great platform for music just like they have with iROKOtv and made Michael Ugwu the CEO of iROKING. Something went wrong between him and Jason earlier this month and he was fired. Nothing was heard from both sides until today, when Jason Njoku's team made a press release. Michael who felt not all what they said was true, decided to say his own part and informed the public he will be starting something else pretty soon. Sadly, Michael is one of Nigeria’s leading young tech executives and Jason Njoku is also one of the best in what he does. Hope they resolve this soon. Find their statements after the cut…
