Naija Entertainment News, Husband of the Year Award and other news

RIP to Sammy Needle and Elder Steve Rhodes, who passed on two days ago.
Elder Steve Rhodes died in a London hospital after surgery on Thursday 29th May. He was 82. May his soul rest in peace.

Sammy's death greatly saddens me, not just because he was a friend, known him for more than 9years, but also because he was young, full of life and had his whole life ahead of him. He was working on so many projects before his untimely death. He's survived by his parents and wife. May his beautiful soul rest in peace. Amen!

To other news...

According to Soundcity music TV, this is what our Naija artists are worth:
Tuface Idibia - $5 million
Olu Maintain - $3.5 million
Dbanj - $3 million
P-Square - $3 million

Tuface is worth 5 million dollars? Really? That means he's worth about 600 million Naira?
I don't know if I believe all this figures. I know they are making so much money but this much? What do you guys think?

Boutiques Shut Over N26m Debt At Silverbird Galleria
By Simon Ateba
Some of you must have noticed that the floor that housed Nu metro and other shops at Silverbird Galleria has been shut down. Here's the inside story...courtesy P.M News

For their inability to pay about four months rent put at N26 million, the management of Silverbird Galleria, owners of Silverbird Television, has shut some boutiques and restaurants at its imposing edifice on Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The first floor of the galleria, comprising several boutiques and restaurants, is managed by Nu-Metro.

P.M.News learnt that the closure took effect last Friday after the Silverbird management learnt that Nu-Metro had been allegedly collecting money from the occupants but refused to pay Silverbird.
A staff of Silverbird Galleria, who does not want to be named, told P.M.News that Nu-Metro is owing Silverbird N26 million.
He said: “Nu-Metro is owing us N26 million. They have been receiving money from the boutiques on the floor they manage but have refused to pay and we had no option than to shut down the place.
“Aside this, we want to use the floor for something else. We want them to go. But before leaving, they will have to pay us, as their belongings are in our custody.
“This place was meant for adults and high fliers in the society but we now have a lot of kids running around the place. That is not in the original plan,” the source added.
When P.M.News visited the place on Friday, Nu-Metro, as well as a popular restaurant located on the second floor of the Galleria, Barcelos, were not open for business.

I9 year old is Mayor in Oklahoma...Incredible!
John Tyler Hammons, the University of Oklahoma freshman trounced 70 year-old Hershel McBride to become the mayor of Muskogee, Oklahoma, making it the first city in the nation to be governed by a self-admitted gamer.
The fresh-faced leader is turning his sights on cleaning up the town's politics by establishing an independent ethics commission and locking down campaign finance reporting.
"I'm sure the (city) council will work with me on these issues," he said. "I campaigned on this, and this is something I intend to push."
Tired of the same old political shenanigans, the townsfolk are backing their new man.
"He doesn't have the baggage. He doesn't owe anybody anything," said cafe owner Gary Armstrong. "It's sort of a fresh start for Muskogee."
Best known as the subject of country legend Merle Haggard's 1969 hit "Okie from Muskogee," the unassuming city of 38,000 is considered the archetype of virtuous, small town America, a "place where even squares can have a ball."

Fire guts down 50's baby mama's home
Officials say arson may be the cause of a massive fire at Bugsy’s ex-girlfriends’ crib:
“A raging fire that one fire official called “definitely suspicious” gutted a Dix Hills home owned by the Grammy-nominated rapper 50 Cent Friday morning, sending six people inside the house to the hospital [including] 50 Cent’s ex-girlfriend, Shaniqua Tompkins, and their 10-year-old son, Marquise.
One of the first firefighters to arrive on the scene [said], ‘I would say there is a strong — a strong, strong — possibility that it is suspicious.’ Asked why he believed the fire was suspicious [the firefighter said], ‘The rapid movement of the fire. The volume of the fire . . . It was engulfed. The home was totally gutted.’

The home at 2 Sandra Drive, purchased by the rapper in January 2007 for a reported $1.4 million, has been at the center of a lawsuit between 50 Cent and Tompkins. The 32-year-old rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, last month tried to evict Tompkins and their son from the home unless she paid him $4,500 a month in rent.”

Babyface expecting baby no3
Kenneth `Babyface’ Edmonds is set to become a dad again - his dancer girlfriend is pregnant with his third child. The singer/songwriter, 50, has two sons with ex-wife Tracey Edmonds. Sources insist Babyface and his 35-year-old partner, Nikki Pantenburg, have no plans to wed. The baby is due at the end of 2008. Babyface is 50? Still looks great!

Tuface's figure is believable. Dude is huge, has traveled far to perform and stuff, and has been in the game for a minute....I dunno about Olu maintain's sha...he just arrived (with the yahooze hit) just few months ago and blew up lately, how did he accumulate so much already?! 9ice kwa...gongo aso brought him to the limelight just this yr, and he's already raking in that much?!


Anonymous said...

Oh please those figures are so not true. Not doubt, they are banking in some money but $5 million. Then y my ass in med school. I should start singing. But thats too much for them to be worth. I dont even think people like Bow Wow are worth that much and theyve been in the game for a minute and been grinding ever since. Please who dash olu maintain 3.5 million dollars. Abeg! make i hear word. Because he sang Yahoozee. Gime me a f**kin break. If anything P square them should be richer than him. These figures are exerggerated. I think the person that published that was just tryin to diss 9ice cos u see how everyone has a pretty dollar sign in front of their figures, na only nice wey get naira. Well that shit na lie sha.

Naijachick83 said...

Those figure are so laughable! lol! Whatever! $600 million ko, $600 million ni. They are known to lie about how much they make anyways so im not surprised. No comment on the other artists!

with all the money diddy has. bikonu. he should come down to naija and speak for some of our females. if it's the light-skinned ones; no problem. we have dem plenty, chicks, wey be say no go mind. abeg, make the money take time circulate, now. at least we are one of the biggest consumers of american hip-hop.

Anonymous said...

No disrespect Linda, but sometimes I have to LOL at your commentary.

So you don't believe that Africa's biggest hip hop/pop/RnB star could have made up to $5 million US but you can defend the bit you wrote about Stephanie Okereke signing one a " 1 million dollars per year [contract] that will run for five years. Meaning Stephanie will make a profit of 5million dollars by the time the contarct runs out" for body cream "named 'Sensual by Stephanie' that costs 190 dollars"

Na wa o!!!!!!

2face has been strong in the game for some years now

$5 million US may be a BIT of a stretch but 2.5 to 3 million is not for someone of 2face's caliber at this point.

anyway, it's far more believable than one unknown naija actress selling perfume and body cream in the U.S. at the astronimical prices you quoted when well-known supermodels, singers and actresses don't and don't make close to 1 million a year

if unpopular american musicians (and even the lesser known european ones) have amassed well more than $5 million, who's to say 2face hasn't had similar success when he can routinely demand up to N10 million a show and gets huge endorsement deals

Anonymous said...

None of those Naija artists are even close to those figures you posted, Linda. $5 million dollars??? $3.5 millon bucks??? LMAO!!! Well...okay, I'm worth $500 million dollars too! Please abeg Linda, help me post it on your blog that this one anonymous Naija guy is worth $500 million dollars, and he is not even 30 years old yet! At least, I know I don't have to confirm these figure. If we are all going to start throwing dollar signs around, let me add mine as well. :)

about 2face, i have heard from a reliable source that he commands a fee of �20,000 (twenty thousand pounds) per show in England. it might sound exaggerated. but honestly, i would think it's true and a fact. 2face has a powerful voice and he's a legend in the music game.

it's just that some management of naija artists suck, PERIOD. maybe with time, it would get better. it should...better, so that those guys & chicks will get their money's worth. as they are worth it. they work soooo hard, c'mon.
