I have discovered that the Igbos have continued to gloom, feel melancholic, highly depressed with a despondent atmosphere all over the place, since the pronouncement by Prof. Attahiru Jega, declaring as expected, General Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR) as the President-elect, and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
One would start to wonder why I spend a good amount of my time talking about the activities of Hon. Uche Ogbuagu, a former Chief Comedian/clown of Government House under the present government of Owelle Rochas Okorocha. It is not about hatred or joblessness, but I believe he is just setting a bad example and precedence for the youths of Imo State and Nigeria in general by playing the present foul politics of today which allows for a campaign and character assassination to any other opponent.Read More...

From my mind's eye, I see a picture of our past heroes fighting for the freedom of this great Nation with the hope of achieving a safe home for the Nigerian, a place conducive for the molding of a true Nigerian child who would be an embodiment of near perfection both in virtue, conducts and every aspect of life.
It is a pity that these past heroes now lie covered in ancient earth helplessly looking at their shattered hopes and aspirations. They neither achieved the home, sweet home of a Nigerian nor the complete or wholistic Nigerian child, they had dreamt of.
The Nigerian that I have grown to know is indubitable, not the Nigeria that was hoped for.
I just imagined what my parents had to go through to reach each other because I am very sure that in their days, there was no mobile phone and so was there no social media.
They were patient to believe that a letter they took time to write will reach the other person in weeks and should he or she be outside the country, they would still be cool with the number of months it would take before their loved ones read the messages.
That was the teens of those days. They were smart and intelligent; rough and arrogant; clueless and carefree just like everything we see today. Everything was just the same but their patience. They believed in friendship and loved; they worked to keep their friends and these are virtues that have been long lost since the teens of today took over the terrain.
Mine was the ushering of the social media age and it was mixed with lots of excitement. We only needed just one best friend and the rest are people we might never meet till we depart from earth and I have come to understand that we often change these friends so often that our toothbrushes often outlive them.
The high life music in whatever variety style or lyrics it is presented, still remains the traditional dance music of the East popularized in and outside by the likes of late Chief Peter Ekwunite and Oliver the Coque.

One time Nigeria High Life Artiste of the Year Award winner at the Nigerian Music Awards [NMA], Ugo Stevenson took to Facebook to lament the current death alerts he has been receiving from friends, prophets and prophetesses.

From all indications, Imo State born rapper Onwudiwe Regis [aka LMG] is set to break his musical silence which has lasted more than 12 months.
The rapper who then despite not releasing a single in 2014 was crowned Artiste of the Year at the last edition of E-Celeb Award, released his last single towards the ending of 2013 and ever since has relied on collabos to remain afloat in the music industry.
Considering his size, no one will give him the opportunity to be the next hot celebrity, but music producer Benjamin Ashford popularly known as Benyjo is doing everything possible to look as hot as he can.
