Open Letter to Wizkid, Olamide, Iyanya, et’all Nigerian Artistes this Festive Period



Wizkid-MMR-yabaleftonline-com.jpg
Dear Nigerian Artiste,
It is Christmas season again, that blessed season of giving, getting…and attending shows and concerts. I don’t need to wish you a merry one because I know that by now the state of your bank accounts has told you all you need to know about how merry or not it will be.
This seems to be a season of letters, yes I know, and even more intriguing of leaked ones. I assure you, this letter is different. If it ever gets leaked, know I had no hand in it. It could just be the handiwork of my detractors and political foes.

Tonto Dikeh – Nigeria’s Best Actress?



tonto-dikeh_new
To better understand this, take into consideration what happened when she was crowned Nigeria’s best actress at the Exquisite Lady of the Year (ELOY) Awards.
Majority of the guests at the event were surprised when Dike was announced the winner of the Best Actress category.
Dikeh left behind such stars as Ini Edo, Rita Dominic, Kate Henshaw, Jackie Appiah and a few others.
Many were sure that Rita Dominic would win, as she carted away most of the accolades for the year. However, Dikeh, who was nominated for her role in the Uche Jombo-produced My Life, My Damage, prevailed.
There is an opinion among movie lovers that Tonto is better at attracting controversy than lead roles. Some think she should concentrate on being a better actress.
In an industry with the likes of Joke Silva, Liz Benson, Patience Ozokwor, Kate Henshaw and Genevieve Nnaji, how can Tonto Dike be Nigeria’s best actress?

“The cost of average vehicle needed to patrol the state is just N5 million. And with such fund, we will have put at least 51 patrol vehicles on the road, patrolling the streets of Lagos.”
