Video: Sean Tizzle Gives Interviewer A Middle Finger As He Walks Out On Him

Hahaha hilarious. So Sean Tizzle was a guest at TheNetng office yesterday where he had an interview with one of the staff there. Well shortly before the interview ended, the last question precisely, Sean was asked to clear the air if he actually bleaches like most of his fans online believe and he practically faced the interviewer asking him if he looks bleached. In fact, he immediately changed to pidgin language saying, ‘Jay I don know you tey tey before coming to this studio sef’ and he went on to say he was disappointed he could ask him such a question, as the interviewer tried to make him understand, it wasn’t about him but about the world and it’s best he clarifies it for his own good as well.

He then got up and gave the dude and the cameras A MIDDLE FINGER! No time, lol. Was Sean right tho?

Oshiomhole Comes For Wike Again, Says I Am The Boss, Learn How To Talk To Me

Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, yesterday threw another jab at Governor  Nyesom Wike of River State, asking him to face governance in his state and pay the salaries of workers, instead of squandering the peoples’ slim resources on an election the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is bound to lose.

Governor Oshiomhole’s attack on Wike is the latest in the exchange of brickbats between the governors ahead of the September 28 governorship election in the state.

Oshiomhole said it was laughable for Governor Wike to have some level of effrontery to talk about governance when he (Wike) has been unable to pay the state’s workers’ salaries for several months.

He urged Governor Wike to learn how to talk him, “that is performing and up-to-date with payment of salaries and not one, whose noise alone can cause further pollution in a Rivers environment that was already degraded.”

62 Nigerians Committed Suicide In The Last 6 Months- Police

The official confirmation that the Nigerian economy is in recession by the Federal Government on August 31, appears to have further stimulated more suicide cases across the nation. In the last six months, seven out of the 36 states of the federation sampled, have recorded over 62 cases of suicides according to statistics from the various police commands by Saturday Telegraph

Ogun and Lagos states have the highest figures of 25 and 12 respectively. Although, psychologists had predicted this, while citing financial and economic troubles that many Nigerians are currently facing, many are still surprised at the huge statistics.

The poor economy has compelled companies to close shop because of harsh operating environment and difficulties in sourcing foreign exchange. Consequently, many have been thrown into the Labour market, thereby increasing people’s anxiety, depression and frustration.

How I Got The Inspiration For Beta Pikin- Harrysong

Five Star Music signee and Reggae Blues exponent, Harrysong, has finally revealed the inspiration behind his 2013 hit-song, Beta Pikin. According to him, the song was inspired by the tears of a beautiful lady he once met in Benin.

What he said; “I wrote the song in Benin. I had attended a show, and I noticed that a woman was crying backstage. I was later told she was one of the organizers of the show. She was crying because despite the amount invested in the show, the returns weren’t coming. I told her ‘time and chance happen to all,’ and that so far she has sowed, she will definitely reap. I thereafter moved straight to the studio in Lagos and recorded the song.

As a songwriter signed to Five Star Music, I was even planning to sell the song to someone else, but Kcee said that he would release the song in my name.”

Kamlesh said: ‘He harassed me every day for the dowry. He was constantly demanding Rs 50,000.
I repeatedly told him that my father is very poor and he cannot afford such an amount but he did not listen and used to threaten that he’ll chop off my nose. He has beaten me for years. He’s used belts, slippers, sticks and has always tortured me. He used to accuse me of working as a prostitute and threaten to sell me. He was always drunk. During our eight years of marriage he was very harsh with me,’ she said.
