Now who says only Hip Hop singers and
International celebrities are on Twitter? Naija’s Fuji ambassador, the only one who has successfully crossed from the Fuji circles to mingle with Urban contemporary singers, Alhaji Pasuma Alabi joined the Twitter train on July 23rd. His followers have increased day after day.

The twitter bug is biting real hard and almost every Nigerian celebrity you can think of visits the medium everyday, relating with fans and relaying how their days are going. Its instant messaging and communal facility are features twitaholics are maximising by the day though this doesn’t mean there aren’t ghost users and impersonators.

Tweets from celebs like Lady Gaga, Ashton Kutcher, Kim Kardashian are using their fame to amass more fortune as their personal endorsement of brands are becoming lucrative advertisement vehicles as all their brand tweets are sponsored.

Essence and her love for pork

Our dear Facebook lover, Essence, was spotted at an event together with KSB in Lagos on Tuesday. While KSB looked much prettier, smarter and younger in her white shirt tucked into grey pants, the same can’t be said of Essence with her weave-on plaited into two girlish locks.

The singer looked like she needs an overall make-over including wardrobe and fitness.


Speaking of fitness, we seem to have identified Essence’s fattening secret: Pork!. During lunch, everyone helped themselves to mouth-watering helpings from the buffet tables. While Essence dished her rice and salad, and walked by the meat table, she recognised the pork stand shortly before KSB shouted out to her saying, ‘Essence, there’s pork over here’.

Since the two ladies are well known to each other, it won’t be far from the truth to note that Essence is a pork lover. While most female celebrities are slaving it out to stay in shape and will shun nearly everything fattening to fit into those red carpet dresses, Essence is fatting up on pork. A word of advice for her: Girlfriend, you may not be A-list yet but on your way there, we suggest you tone down the figure and indulgence. Maybe you should hook up with Jennifer Hudson and let her mentor you a bit.

Kefee’s ex, Alec, shows off new girl

Well, depending on which side of the divide you belong, this may be good or bad news. If you are one of those hoping for a reconciliation between singer Kefee and estranged husband cum manager, Alec Godwin, sorry I have some bad news.

But if you believed the singer’s break-up tale and wished with all your heart that your loving Kefee never be abused again, then this is the green light. Alec Godwin is moving on and yes, he’s showing her off to those who have the eyes to tell.

We don’t know the name of the lucky lady, however the young one accompanied the label boss, Alec to a client’s album unveil in Lagos last Tuesday. It was at Protea Hotel, Ikeja where the many celebs gathered let down their hair over lunch.

Sunny Nneji asked jokingly if his date was another fan but surprisingly Alec responded that she wasn’t a fan but serious business. Well, we pray you the very best Alec. One thing however couldn’t escape our notice: Alec’s ringing tone. While the function was on formally, before the lunch; a phone rang out Kefee’s award-winning number,

Kokoroko. A few heads turned trying to find out the source of the interruption. Lo and behold, it was Alec’s phone
