'I never left Psquare… I waited two months before moving on'' Paul Okoye says

In a new interview with The Nation, Paul Okoye of the now defunct group, PSquare, says he never left the group when his twin brother, Peter, opted out and that he moved on with his solo career after waiting for two months to see if the fallout could be resolved.

In the interview, Paul said “I never left and I don’t know why people keep asking me that. It might be the fourth time it’s happening but I always wait. But this time the difference is that I did not wait. So I don’t have issues on that.”

Speaking further, Paul said the earlier days of their separation was strange to him because he had never performed alone but now he is used to it

“There was a bit of a breakdown when it happened and everyone was in shock because usually when things happen like that, I wait for almost nine months. But this time, I had to move on with my life and under two months, it became normal for me. It’s the same old thing. There’s nothing new. The only part I know is different is performing alone because at the early stage I wasn’t used to it but now, I am used to it''.

Reacting to comments made by some Nigerians that himself and Peter have become upcoming artiste since their breakup, Paul said ''Well, they know who they are referring to. Like I said, nothing changed. If you listen, it is the same thing you have been listening to almost twenty years so I cannot go and discover a new thing. We are in the internet generation so people can say whatever they want. I know people are angry but there are some things that you cannot say; that is why it is family. If somebody did not pull out what they pulled out, you won’t know about anything. That is not me, and like I said, I don’t want to say anything about it. You might be doing your job but I have to protect what I have to protect''.

Peter left the group in 2017. He accused his brothers, Paul and Jude, of consistent disregard for his creative input in Psquare. He also accused Jude of always threatening his life.

Rap mogul, Russell Simmons slammed with another rape suit

Hip-hop legend, Russell Simmons was on Friday slammed with a $10-million rape lawsuit filed by a woman in Los Angeles, the latest in a string of accusations against him ranging from harassment to rape.

The unidentified woman said in the complaint filed in the Los Angeles County Superior Court that the mogul raped her in a hotel after the two met at a concert and then went to a club. At least nine women have now come forward with misconduct allegations against the 60-year-old Simmons.

In January, aspiring filmmaker Jennifer Jarosik sued him for alleged rape, seeking $5 million as she called for a reckoning in the hip-hop industry on the mistreatment of women. In light of the most recent suit, Simmons released a statement saying “I vehemently deny all the allegations made against me. They have shocked me to my core as I have never been abusive or violent in any way in my relations with women,” he said in the statement, noting that he had submitted to and passed several lie detector tests concerning such allegations.

In the latest complaint, the woman said Simmons lured her into his hotel room, threatened her, and then “threw her on the bed and raped her.” She said she first met the rap impresario at a concert she had attended with her son, and that Simmons had invited her to an after-party. Filmmaker Jarosik alleged in her suit that Simmons who stepped down from all of his business roles after the first allegations against him surfaced propositioned her for sex. When she said no, he allegedly hit and raped her.

Simmons was an enormously influential figure in popularizing hip-hop, co-founding the Def Jam label that brought rap acts such as the Beastie Boys, LL Cool J and Public Enemy to a broad US audience.

The recent spate of allegations against him surfaced as the #MeToo movement gained steam, with scores of women speaking out over harassment, assault and rape in the wake of disgraced film tycoon Harvey Weinstein’s downfall

T-Boss shares love letter Black Bassey wrote to her while they were in the BBNaija house

Former BBNaija housemate, T-Boss, has shared a throwback photo of a letter that fellow housemate Bassey wrote to her while they were in the Big Brother Naija house last year.

The letter has the possibility of leaving you smiling from ear to ear. It's quite romantic and reminiscent of those good old days when people still wrote romantic letters. Bassey sure has his way with words.

The letter which was folded has "Kiss before you open" written on the back.

The letter itself reads:

"Dear T-Boss,

"I smile ear to ear as I pick up my pen from the basket of love to write you pages of seemingly endless thoughts I have about you.

"I hope this letter meets you in good health, if so, dittomatic.

"They say beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder and we find love in the strangest most un-imaginable places and people. Your beauty and simplicity permeates through your glowing smiles which expose your set of perfect teeth, leaving a dimple on both sides of your sensual cheeks. This sinks my heart a few more feet into my soul as I appreciate God who created the chest so my heart doesn't fall literally at your feet.

"I may not have the right words to interpret my emotions and for how madly in love I have become with you but I sure won't be quiet about it none-the-less. The sparkle in your eyes makes me believe that your mother is a thief cos she stole the stars and put them in your eyes.

"I could go on but time is what you don't have to read a 1 million paged love letter so I will say from my heart and hope you feel it too. T-Boss, I love you."

He signed off with the drawing of a heart with an arrow piercing through the centre.

T-Boss shared the letter with the caption: "#flashbackfriday to that time in the #BBN house when @blackbassey wrote me a really chesssy ass love letter??. I enjoyed reading it so much & it brought back such memories?, who else used to receive or write such? Ps: Letters were thaaa Ishhhh though... Yeah Yeah Yeahhh, I still have it, I already admitted to being a hoarder?, you should see what else I hoard???"

Police shot at a man 20 times in his own backyard thinking he had a gun but it was an iPhone

Stephen Clarke has died after being shot multiple times by police because they thought he was holding a gun, whereas it was his cellphone.

Clarke, 22, was in his grandmother's backyard in Sacramento on the night of Sunday, March 18, when he was killed. US police say they saw an object in Stephan Clark's hand before firing 20 bullets that killed him.

The two officers were responding to a 911 call about a man breaking vehicle windows. They encountered Clarke and believed he was the one breaking the windows. They also saw him with something in his hand and believed he was holding a gun so they each fired 10 rounds at Clark, striking him multiple times. The father-of-two, who is engaged to be married, didn't stand a chance.

"He was at the wrong place at the wrong time in his own backyard? C'mon now, they didn't have to do that," his grandmother, Sequita Thompson, told the Sacramento Bee.

"I told the officers, 'You guys are murderers. Murderers,' " Thompson cried out in a video. "You took him away from his kids."

He had two young sons, Cairo and Aiden, the family said, and a fiancee, Salena Manni, the Associated Press reported.

Both officers who shot Clarke were wearing body cams and the authorities are working to get the footage released. They are both on paid administrative leave.

Sacramento mayor Darrell Steinberg in a statement on Wednesday night offered his condolences to Clark's family and said he was "heartbroken" for the city.

There are 708,666 workers on FG’s payroll - Kemi Adeosun

There are 708,666 workers on the integrated payroll of the Federal Government, according to figures given by the Ministry of Finance.

The figure excludes workers in the judiciary and the National Assembly and also the armed forces but it includes, 316,158 workers in 469 ministries and agencies of government, 291,685 workers in 42 police commands and another 100, 822 workers in the para-military agencies, such as Nigeria Immigration Service, Nigeria Prison Service and Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps.

Oluyinka Akintunde, Special Adviser on Media and Communication, to Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun, gave the figures on Wednesday in Abuja. Akintunde gave the figures while highlighting the savings the Federal Government has made since it introduced the integrated payroll and personnel information system(IPPIS).

He said the Federal Government saved N68 billion on personnel cost in 2017.According to him, this brings the aggregate savings by the government on personnel cost to N288 billion. Akintunde said the minister disclosed the figures in a presentation to the Federal Executive Council. At the presentation, Adeosun said the savings are now being used to fund capital projects.

She said the savings were achieved despite increase in personnel, including the employment of 10,000 officers by the Nigerian Police. Adeosun said that the introduction of the IPPIS had resulted in the reduction of ghost workers syndrome, enforcement of compliance with due process on employment of staff in MDAs.

The minister further said that IPPIS had ensured prompt and timely payment of salaries and remittances of federal government workers. She said the IPPIS had also become an assured source of internally generated revenue through Payee to states and federal governments.

Adeosun, however, called for adequate funding of the IPPIS project to achieve its lofty objectives and to enable replacement of the obsolete infrastructure. She also canvassed for a legislation to impose sanctions on non-compliant MDAs to achieve speedy and successful service delivery

Former CBN deputy governor, Kingsley Moghalu wants NNPC scrapped

Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, a former Deputy Governor of the CBN, has called for the scrapping of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

Moghalu spoke while delivering a lecture titled “Overcoming Poverty: The Secret of the Wealth of Nations” on Wednesday in Lagos at the 3rd Annual Lecture of the Centre for Financial Journalism (CFJ).

According to him, the scrapping of the NNPC will bring sanity to the petroleum sector. The financial expert said that the NNPC would be more effective if it was run as a Public Private Partnership (PPP). He also said that deregulation of the downstream petroleum sector was the way to go to stop the incessant fuel scarcity in the country.

He also said that for the country to overcome poverty, it needed to have a worldview, an economic philosophy and be innovative, be economically competitive and should be ready to build sound institutions. Moghalu urged the FG to avoid further borrowing to prevent the mortgaging of the future of the nation’s youths. Earlier, the chairman of the occasion, Sen. Olabiyi Durojaiye, Chairman, Board of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) , noted that the title of the lecture was a reminder of Adam Smith’s book written in the 18th centuries.

Durojaiye commended the present administration in building on the successes recorded by his predecessors in the agricultural sector in turning around the fortune of the economy. He called on the smugglers of rice to stop their unpatriotic trade by allowing the efforts of government to attain fruition. The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the event attracted the high and mighty in the media industry

Rotimi Amaechi appeals to Igbos to vote President Buhari in 2019

Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, has appealed to the Igbos to vote for President Buhari in 2019 as he cannot win the election without their support.

Amaechi made the appeal when he delivered a lecture titled “The Igbo in the politics of Nigeria.” at the 12th convocation of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State yesterday March 21st.

The Minister said re-electing President Buhari will make it easy for the Igbos to become president in 2023.

“You (Igbo) did not vote for Buhari, true or false? You voted for the PDP and what did they do for you? The PDP abandoned the Enugu-Onitsha expressway since 1999, but Buhari is working on it with dispatch, true or false?

Buhari is working on the second Niger Bridge; he is working on the Otuocha-Ibaji-Abuja Road; he is working on the Abakaliki-Onueke Road; he is working on the Oji-Achi-Naku Road in Enugu State; he is working on the Ozalla-Akpugo-Amagunze Road. He is also working on Aba-Ikot Ekpene Road.

Under Buhari, all major cities of the South-East are captured in the existing railway project. Name one government that has done up to this within two years. Our problem is that we are just being emotional'' he said
