You’ll Never Believe TOP 5 Nigerian Musicians Who Started Their Careers With OJB Jezreel

Popular producer, OJB Jezreel, who is suffering from Kidney failure and needs transplant definitely has made an impact in the music industry and many artistes who are successful today started their careers with him.

Check out the 5 artistes he helped jump start their careers below
1) 2face Idibia - 2Face was already a known star as a member of the 90’s/00’s R and B group The Plantashun Boyz. 2Face’s star power in the group was so great that everyone knew it was a matter of time before he went solo. In 2004, 2face struck out and went solo.

He sought the production prowess of OJB Jezreel who was the hottest music producer in the country at the time for his highly anticipated debut album. For months they slaved on songs that would end up on 2Face’s instant classic solo debut album Face 2 Face. The album catapulted 2Face into superstardom. In 2007, 2Face hooked up with OJB Jezreel again. The huge success of his sophomore Grass 2 Grace proved that you never change a winning formula. 2Face’s first two albums are widely regarded as his best LPs in his rich discography.

2) Rugged Man- Rugged Man had been lurking in the underground scene for years. Tired of the mainstream rap music he heard on radio courtesy of Eedris Abdulkareem and Rasqie he went to OJB’s Silver Point Studios to record the classic ‘Ehen’ diss track featuring Nomoreloss. The song spread like wild fire and galvanized the underground rap community.

Rugged Man wasn’t through with the diss tracks. ‘Peace or War’ and ‘Big Bros’ completed his diss trilogy aimed at wack rappers, their fans and record labels that pushed them. Thanks to OJB’s production, Rugged Man became the new champion of rap music in Nigeria. He released his debut album 2 years after ‘Ehen’- 2004. Thy Album Come featured production from OJB and other Silver Point associate producers. Thy Album Come is perceived as one of the most influential rap LPs in Nigerian rap history.

3)D’Banj – Most people think Dapo Oyebanjo’s music career started when he met JJC Skillz in London. D’Banj’s entrance into the music game goes a bit farther than that. In 2002, D’Banj recorded his first song ‘Kiss Me Again’ featuring Rugged Man. The song was produced by Jigga (OJB’s alias).

The song wasn’t a hit but it got a few spins on local radio. Buoyed by the little positive response the song got, D’Banj moved to the UK to pursue his dreams. He came back 2 years later with an unknown producer who would take over from OJB Jezreel. His name is Don Jazzy.

Durella – By 2008, D’Banj who started his career with OJB Jezreel had become a superstar. An unknown act named Durella whose style was similar to D’Banj’s knocked on OJB’s door in search of a hit.

OJB Jezreel blessed him with ‘Wiskolo Wiska’ a hard hitting club track. The song became so popular that people thought it was D’Banj who sang the song. Thanks to OJB’s production Durella had made a name for himself. Durella’s career has had more downs than up but a hit like ‘Wiskolo Wiska’ is a sparkling gem in his scattered discography.

Wizkid – If a biopic of Wizkid’s music life comes out, the flick would most likely start with him as a young thin boy watching stars troop in and out of OJB’s famed Silver Point studios.

Years before Wizkid scored his first hit with DJ Klem in the Knight House studio; he was a studio rat in OJB’s studio.

Wizkid who was barely in his teens was itching to record songs with OJB as his producer. Most times OJB told him to wait and watch. Wizkid’s recalls that while he was sitting in the studio waiting for his turn he learnt a lot of valuable lessons watching the likes of 2Face and Rugged Man record. It is most likely that Wizkid never released any of his OJB produced songs but the experience he gained chilling in the studio must have helped him become the star boy he is today.

Governor Peter Obi Retires From Politics

Chairman of South-East Governors’s Forum and Anambra State Governor, Mr. Peter Obi has announced his retirement from active politics.

The Governor, who disclosed this on Sunday, said he would quit active politics at the end of his current tenure in March 2014.

He spoke at the thanksgiving service and award ceremony to mark the end of the 2nd Session of the 15th Synod of the Anglican Diocese of Enugu at the St. Bartholomew’s Church, Asata, Enugu.

“A very prominent person called me today and asked me, what is your plan concerning politics after your current tenure, I’m telling you now what I told him.

“For me, I have come to the end of it; I want to quit and rest. However, I have been praying to God that for the sake of the good people of Anambra State, please give them somebody like Peter Obi.

“The level of greed in Nigeria is overwhelming, where people can’t see the suffering of other people, they are just accumulating wealth, for me, it is time to go.

“I wonder why one person should own a house in Ikoyi, Asokoro, Dubai and he is not using them for anything, people accumulate what they don’t need, it is madness, the level of greed in Nigeria is intolerable.

“I want all of us to be praying for Nigeria, so that God will touch the heart of our leaders to use public money for the people. In Anambra State we have never borrowed money despite all the works we are doing”.

The Governor, who was quite emotional lamented the level of financial waste in government, stressing “the cost of running a governor’s office in Nigeria is too much.

“When I came in as Governor, I discovered that the state had 70 workers in Abuja office, apart from their salary we spend close to 15 million maintaining that office. They have nothing doing there than to come to the airport and welcome me, constituting nuisance, so we re-deployed the workers and closed down the place. Till date, we have not missed them, which means they were really doing nothing there”.

“I urge all of us to pray for greedy people in this country; they are accumulating what they don’t need, stop accumulating things for your children”, he charged politicians, stressing that he had never bought a car for any of his children.

“I have told them to buy cars when they make their money, I have also never celebrated birthday for them. They can do that when they leave my house. We should stop wasting public fund”.


Vigilante Arrests Women With Assault Weapons In Maiduguri

A youth vigilante group, popularly called “the Civilian JTF’’, said it apprehended two women attempting to smuggle assault weapons into the Monday market in Maiduguri on Sunday.

Eyewitnesses told journalists that the women, who concealed the weapons in their dresses, were nabbed at the Bulabulin entrance gate of the market.
One of the witnesses, Modu Bulama, a trader, said that they were in the market when they heard noise from the gate.

“We rushed to scene, but on getting there, we saw two women in veil with assault weapons,’’ he said.

Mr. Bulama said that each of the women concealed an AK 47 rifle, a pistol and some items believed to be Improvise Explosive Devise (IED) in their veil.
A member of the vigilante, Usman Ibrahim, corroborated Mr. Bulama’s claim, adding: “we were on a routine checking at the gate when these women came with heavy veil.

“At first we did not bother to look at them, but we realised that one of them was shivering, we said something must be wrong,’’ Mr. Ibrahim said.
He said that when they were searched, “‘we found that each of them concealed an AK 47 rifle, a pistol and IED in their veil.

“We were surprised at the discovery, so we took them to officials of the Joint Task Force (JTF) on Operation Restore Order (ORO) for investigations,” Mr. Ibrahim said.

The JTF spokesman, Lt.-Col. Sagir Musa, could not be contacted for comment, but a senior military officer, who spoke on condition anonymity, confirmed the story.

The official said the JTF was already investigating the case.

OH NOT AGAIN!!! Another Baby Abandoned By Teenage Mother In Osun State (PICTURED)

Mother Abandons Infant in HospitalHealth workers and patients at the Osun State General Hospital, Osogbo were left confused on Friday when a nursing mother, Mrs. Grace Adipe, allegedly abandoned her three-day-old baby in the hospital.

The hospital community was taken aback as the news of the abandonment spread.

A woman, Adijat Bamijoko, told NAN that she was in the hospital to assist a patient when the incident occurred on Thursday, and wondered “how a nursing mother could abandon her child.

“Although, I do not know the woman, but one wonders why she should abandon her baby in the hospital where Gov. Rauf Aregbesola had made medication free for all,” she said.

Other people who expressed surprise over the incident, called on the hospital’s management to ensure that the fleeing mother was brought back to care for her baby.

Search team, including government officials and law enforcement agents had failed in their effort to find the woman.

The Osun Commissioner for Women and Children’s Affairs, Mrs. Mofolake Adegboyega, said in a statement that efforts to contact the woman by the hospital authorities were yet to yield results.

Adegboyega called Adipe’s relations and members of the public to be vigilant on the whereabouts of the woman.

She urged members of the public to consider the innocence and future of the child and help in efforts to find the mother and her relations.

The commissioner said that any information about Adipe’s whereabouts should be directed to the nearest police station or the Director of Social Welfare in the ministry, Mrs. Grace Adegoke.

Amaechi Warns On 2015 Elections Playing Out Like NGF Poll

Embattled Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi on Wednesday decried the lingering Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) crisis which he said was an indication of what was likely to happen in the 2015 elections where people who lose will reject the results and cling onto power.

Amaechi, who was speaking at a stakeholders’ symposium on the review of the 1999 Constitution in Abuja said, “Let me put it on record that the way things are going, 2015 elections will end in this manner where people will win democratic elections and those in power will not accept the results.”

Amaechi, who won the May 24 NGF election in Abuja, was curious as to why some people would be backing Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau State, who contested against him and lost.

The governor described Jang and his supporters as undemocratic and accused the Nigeria Bar Association of keeping silent in the face of Jang’s action and his supporters after the NGF poll.

Amaechi, who said he had been trying to avoid the microphone because of too many problems in the country, told the audience that since he had been made to mount the podium, he was ready to make “headlines.”

Taking the NBA to the cleaners first, Amaechi said, “The NBA cannot afford to lose its voice, but you have lost your voice. For the NBA to see a free and fair election, where 35 governors who govern 35 states in the nation, who make decisions for hundreds of millions of Nigerians, for NBA to say that ‘if they can’t organise themselves dissolve,’ you have lost your voice.

“I say it and I want to be put on record that anybody who supports the Jang group is undemocratic.

“Before that the NGF election, we chose who will be the returning officer, we appointed our director-general to be the returning officer and we voted.

“Everybody voted; everybody including Jang. Jang was even among the first persons to vote.

“When I won my brother from Akwa Ibom State (Godswill Akpabio) stood up and said, ‘there’s a document I have where 19 governors have signed for us.’

“And Jang says the Northern States Governors’ Forum supported him. Which Northern governors? They should have voted for him. He also said the PDP governors supported him before the election, then the PDP governors should have voted for him.

“What you have that Jang is leading is another faction of the PDP Governors’ Forum, not the NGF.

“Anybody, whether NBA or government that supports Jang’s faction is undemocratic.”

Imploring Nigerians and the judiciary to rise up and defend their rights, Amaechi said, “My Lords, you must defend our democracy and Nigeria. We don’t have any other country anywhere else, the only country we have is this.

“We must be prepared as a people to defend our rights; we must be prepared as a people to hold government accountable. We must be prepared as a people to demand accountability.”

Amaechi urged Nigerians to resist a situation “where non-government officers that have no public function can order the Inspector-General of Police to change commissioners of police.”

The governor also used the occasion to reiterate his call for the establishment of state police in the ongoing constitution review adding that it was not proper for the President to appoint commissioners of police.

In apparent reference to the face-off between him and the Rivers state police commissioner, Amaechi said, “You were talking about state prisons and state police. We don’t have state prisons; we don’t have state police.

“A situation where governors are left helpless and hopeless because somebody here in Abuja determines who becomes my commissioner of police, and tells him what to do, and he makes the city uncomfortable and ungovernable, is not the kind of constitution that I will want to support.”

Opinion: The Discrimination Of HND Holders In Nigeria

Right from the emergence of western education in Nigeria, there has been a lot of controversies generated regarding the disparity that is breeding between degree and Higher national diploma certificates. This dichotomy has escalated to a stage that
most of the graduates that were trained in polytechnics wished to pursue a degree certificate but for lack of privilege. Having a concrete and theoretical view into the backgrounds, it is pertinent to know the significance of polytechnic training in the area of technological development and nation building. Generally, the polytechnic is majorly established to equip man powers with the necessary technological skills use in nation building. To add verisimilitude, this particular disparity is still in existence at full edge especially in Nigeria labour markets. Most of corporate organisations have special preference for university graduates compare to their polytechnic counterparts with governmental set ups inclusive. Some companies will go as far as placing in their adverts in the national dailys that only university degrees are allowed, though many private enterprises accept HND but a degree certificate is an added advantage. This dichotomy is not only restricted to the private enterprises, the civil service of the nation owned at the state or federal government level also embrace this in their process of recruitment due to the fact that a new employee holding a HND certificates starts at the position of grade level 7 whereas a degree holder does so at grade level 8. Looking at the process of retirement in the civil service, it is learnt that a HND holder retires at the grade level 14 while a university graduate retires at grade level 16. Is this not a complete devaluation of HND certificate? Even though there are many polytechnics in Nigeria producing middle level man power, the level of its development is still at a slower rate. This particular disparity breeding regarding degree and HND has resulted in many students opting for university degree which is purely academic and research-based compare to polytechnic training that entails practical and pragmatism. This dichotomy is doing more harm than good in
the area of economic growth and educational development. For instance, there are some cases where a university graduate of mechanical engineering was unable to repair a faulty automobile; this particular episode has obviously reflected the theoretical nature of university training. Examining the issue critically, polytechnic education is scientifically and technologically oriented in the sense that proper scientific training is offered in the area of engineering technology, textile development, architectural technology, automobile system development and host of others. Even in Nigeria of nowadays, you will hardly see a situation where parents wish their wards to attend polytechnics owing to some of the aforementioned facts. Every child wants to become a medical doctor, lawyer, engineer, nurse and so on, nursing the believe that all these professions are trained in the university. Even the unified tertiary matriculation examination which serves as the qualifying examination into
the Nigerian universities, polytechnics and college of education experienced mass application into the universities whereas the slot for admission is limited. Some students even prefer staying at home for a long period of time waiting for university admission rather than proceeding towards polytechnic. At the corner of professionalism, higher percentage of professional institutions in Nigeria reserves an enjoyment galore for university graduate applicants in the course of their professional trainings such as ICAN whereas HND holders require some particular exams before being duly eligible. In the course of attaining postgraduate degrees such as masters degree and doctor of
philosophy, a HND holder is required to procure a postgraduate diploma of a recognised university before he is eligible to further with his second degree. In the area of education privileges, it is learnt that most of the scholarship available in Nigeria are meant for university undergraduates and graduates. Even the international one has preference for degree. For instance, petroleum trust development fund (PTDF) is a scheme that has executed a wide range of development projects such as building of laboratories and complexes in many universities across Nigeria. In conclusion, here are some
proffered solutions that may definitely bridge the gaps resulting from the disparity Employment into various cadres of positions in the civil service, government parastatals, corporate organisations and private establishment should not only be based on certification but also on the individual capability and practical experience through proper interviewing and scrutinization. Proper orientation and enlightenment programmes should be given to all graduates irrespective of their graduating schools on the need for self autonomy and reliance. The federal government should eradicate the dichotomy by passing a legislative act regarding that
and the equivalence of HND with of a university. if all these gaps are cleared , polytechnic education will be appealing to admission seekers and thus divert their
focus on compulsory university attendance, I hope with this , the country will be propelling towards an
enviable height.

Junior Secondary School Pupils Caught Donating Blood For N1500 In Lagos

About nine junior secondary school students were on Tuesday, caught donating blood illegally to one Mr. Sola in Agege area of Lagos.

It was learnt that members of the community noticed the unusual visit of some students to a certain shop located on Owoloabi Omotoye street, Orile Agege, during and after school hours which prompted a little investigation.

The investigations revealed that the students had been donating their blood for money.

One of the students nabbed at the shop and simply identified as Emeka, a JSS2 pupil, confessed to donating his blood thrice for the sum of N1, 500 on each occasion with Sola asking them “not to tell anyone about it.”

Confirming the incident, chairman of the Parent-Teachers’ Association (PTA) State Junior High School, Mr. Adeyemi, said some of the students, who became very sick as a result of the repeated blood donation, had been taken to the hospital while the rest had been released to their parents.

Mr. Adeyemi added that beside those caught in the act, several other students later confessed to have donated their blood at one point or the other saying that the case had been reported to the education district 1 for further action.

I’m Old Enough To Be Amaechi’s Father, Says Jang

The war of words between foremost contenders to the chairmanship position of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) continued yesterday with Plateau state Governor Jonah Jang declaring that he cannot be seen to be contending a position with his Rivers state counterpart, Rotimi Amaechi, who he called his son.

Speaking to newsmen at the sideline of the dinner organised by President Goodluck Jonathan to celebrate his mid-term in office, Jang said he is old enough to be Amaechi’s father.

“Amaechi is my younger brother, infact, I can say son because if you look at Amaechi’s age, I’m old enough to be his father” he said.

On a statement credited to Mr Amaechi that he won the NGF election by 19 votes to 16, Jang indicated indifference as he responded, “Well, that is his problem but I know that I am the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum.”

Since the controversial May 24th election of the NGF, Jang and Amaechi have both laid claim to the chairmanship of the Forum with their tussle splitting the NGF into two factions.

Detained Boko Haram Suspects Plead For Second Chance, Say They Were Brainwashed

Over 50 detained members of the Boko Haram sect have appealed to Federal Government to give them a second chance as they were ‘brain washed’ into picking up arms against the Nigerian state and its citizens.

The sect members made the appeal when the presidential committee on dialogue and peaceful resolution of security challenges in the North visited one of the detention centres in Maiduguri, Borno State capital on Tuesday.

According to one of the detainees Adam Konto, who introduced himself to the chairman of the committee, Kabir Turaki as the Amir (Commander) of the Bayan quarters, one of Boko Haram’s strongholds in Maiduguri, the detained members if released, will be law abiding and assist the FG in bringing the deadly insurgence to an end.

Konto, who claimed to be speaking on behalf of his comrades-at-arms said: “We pledge to assist the authorities if given a second chance as most of us were brainwashed and recruited into the sect and given instructions to carry out dastardly acts without our full understanding of what we were doing.”

Another detainee, who gave his name as Babagana Saje, said that he was ready to denounce the sect and commended the Police for taking good care of them.

He said: “The police have been treating us fine. We have been allowed to take our bath and have been well fed.”

In his response, after listening to the sect members’ submissions, Turaki, who is also Minister of Special Duties, promised to look into their cases.

He said: “If you are sincere with this information we have gathered, we will bring you into the proposed amnesty agenda.”
