‘Sex, Music & The Kid-dom’

It seemed like your regular night club video. There were a few differences though. The quality of light seemed too bright for it to have been shot at night.

‘Sex, Music & The Kid-dom’

  /   in Dis 'N' Dart 12:01 am   /   Comments

It seemed like your regular night club video. There were a few differences though. The quality of light seemed too bright for it to have been shot at night. But you must have seen this scenario before. Exotic dance steps between a guy and a girl on the dance floor that makes you want to scream ‘get a room.’ Or you’ve been there, done that, the-girl-in-front-guy-behind-syndrome rocking beyond the money of the music’s worth. Well in this Youtube video, the girl could dance, but my guy, he was just in it for the added benefits; the only music he was following was the curves right in front of him. It even had the cliché crowd who seemed to have nothing better to do than to watch and scream more to make up for their lack of sex-dancing prowess rather than in genuine interest.

FAME AND FEUDS

  /   in Dis 'N' Dart, Entertainment 12:10 am   /   Comments

*Dbanj & Don Jazzy

Today, everyone quotes Shakespeare. It gives a certain credence, an authority to your writing. When you say ‘Shakespeare said’ no one cares whether you are writing entertainment, sports or politics, it is serious journalism. It’s only natural that we follow suit. Quite a pity that I’m not too sure who said “All is fair in love and war,” but I’m sincerely hoping that it was Shakespeare. If it was someone else, all is not lost, because some intellectuals have read this far. Lol!

Why won’t they let Goldie rest in peace? The star seems to be more controversial from the great beyond than when she was alive and well. And it keeps getting more colourful. It appears that some unidentified individual has taken the reins of the deceased pop singer’s tweeter account and is using it as a publicity platform to promote Nigerian movies as well as Tonto Dikeh’s ‘hit’ (popularly bashed and generally unaccepted) single Jeje.

It’s a Nigerian thing. As soon as you hear a figure in foreign currency, you quickly go for your calculator-imaginary or otherwise-and convert it into dwindling-in-value-naira. It doesn’t matter whether the money is yours or someone else’s but as soon as a $ 100 is mentioned, visions of about N16, 000 float around your head.

Goldie’s last days

  /   in Dis 'N' Dart, Music 12:30 am   /   Comments

GOLDIE

You’ve heard that phrase before, “Live every moment as if it was your last.” In this season, as we remember singer, Goldie Harvey who passed on last week, it now more than ever before bears repetition. If the ‘Touch my body” singer knew that she was nearing the end of her days on earth, would she have done things differently? It’s quite difficult to say; because the dead don’t talk. But as we go through the last days of Goldie Harvey, perhaps you can answer that question for yourself.

M.I would be a teddy bear…just a bit taller. Dr. Sid would be designer mouth wash, it’s quite hard to give up being a dentist. Two face would be a coin; it’s not hard to imagine why.

“Why did you not mention Abdul Mutallab?” someone commented, after reading last week’s article. The rest of the world does not need our help dragging our nation’s name in the mud; they’ve got that covered. But we as Nigerians need to be reminded that no matter how little the connection might be, there are stars out there whose roots are intertwined with ours. Now, even though the ‘L’ in Samuel L. Jackson does not stand for Lekan, there are a lot more Naija on the international scene.
