There has been no clear response from the Davido’s team or Zlatan Ibile’s camp yet.

  1. MC Oluomo

A controversial figure and chairman of the Lagos NURTW, Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo looks to publish his biography, My Service to Humanity, and the gist has generated a lot of buzz on Twitter. It seems that the book would do well especially down to the fact that people want to know what a notorious figure like him will have to say.

It should make for an interesting read. The man was recorded also having a good time with what many rumour to be his girlfriend in celebrity interior decorator, Ehi Ogbebor.

  1. Joeboy

Joeboy dropped his album this week and the work has been garnering good reviews from his fans so far. It is 14 songs long and we did a review of the work. Check it out.

 

  1. IGP

Police boss, Mohammed Adamu officially retired this Monday and was supposed to have been replaced effective from Monday but for two days, the president who has the powers to do so was away in his hometown, Daura and the presidency revealed that a decision would be reached upon Buhari’s return to Abuja.

The president returned on Tuesday and later decided to extend the IG’s tenure by three months “to give the IG time transition properly.” This move by President Buhari brought about conflicting views on social media.

However, the Nigeria Police Act of 2020 fixes a four-year single term for the Inspector General, without an option for extension. According to the Act, section 7 (6):

‘The person appointed to the office of the Inspector General of Police shall hold office for four (4) years subject the provisions of clause 18 (8) of the bill.’

  1. Cryptocurrency

The Federal Government of Nigeria through the Central Bank of Nigeria has placed a ban of financial institutions in Nigeria from dealing in or facilitating payments through cryptocurrency. This came as a shock to Nigerians on Twitter who viewed this as an attack on their financial independence.

Since this news broke, today, social media has been in a frenzy.
