Runtown, he is an upcoming act with an impressive (and small) tracklist. He featured
prominently on Wizzy Pro’s ‘Emergency’ featuring Patoranking and Skales. His latest
single ‘Gallardo’ featuring Davido is a sure hit. Runtown is also signed to Penthauze,
home to Phyno.
According to sources close to Runtown, this promising act wrote ‘Aye’. As a matter of
fact, ‘Aye’ was originally his. When Davido heard the song, he persuaded Runtown to
sell the song to him, which he did. As a matter of fact, Davido also wanted to buy
‘Gallardo’, but Runtown refused. Instead Davido got featured on the track.
This totally makes sense. I’ve always wondered why the word ’emergency’ was in
the track. I guess Runtown was leaving his artistic DNA on the song. Yeah, no wonder
Runtown was in the ‘Aye’ video.
As most matrimonial ads typically go by the, “fair, slim and homely girl needed for a well-settled boy” phrase, women’s demands have undergone a drastic change.
While both men and women are known to fantasize about their prospective spouses, what makes it more exciting are the expectations they have.
Women, in recent times, are known to outnumber men in listing out modern expectations from their prospective spouse, cooking being one of them.
In a recent survey conducted by a matrimonial website, a whopping 51.9 per cent women said that they want their prospective spouses to help in household chores. While, 39.5 per cent want a spouse with culinary skills.
A Marriage counsellor says, “The modern woman is independent, smart and speaks her heart, that makes her demands different from the stereotypes. Hence, if she thinks her prospective spouse should fulfill certain criteria, why not?”
Both men and women discover different things about themselves after marriage. It is often observed that these things are mostly shocks and not surprises. A guy who seemed open-minded when you met during courtship, suddenly seems an alien after staying together for a few days. Hence, these criteria when laid out before marriage can clear the air between the couple.
What women want
– They should know how to cook
– They should help with household chores
– They should readily undergo an HIV test prior to marriage
– Admit to not feel financially insecure if I earn well/keep male ego aside
– Be open to talk about how to make love and also experiment
– Give enough ‘me’ time
– Never encourage any comparison with the mother-in-law
– Do not force on having children
– Never ask to give up careers
The list is endless, cos there are a lot of other things not included here, please continue with the list…
To be frank with you, I’m speechless, guys. I had reported this story, cos the sources were Punch and NAN. 26 years old Sulaimon Abari and 27 years old O’tega Daniel, had been arraigned in an Ibadan Chief Magistrates’ Court sitting at Iyaganku for allegedly engaging in homosexual practices with a pupil. They were eventually acquitted and the reason the media gave was that the victim’s parents had forgiven the accused, so they were released.
But Sulaimon took to Facebook, after his release, to tell his own side of the story, to recount his horrible experience after being innocently accused, how he stayed for 12 days without food, how someone who was supposed to be his friend sold him out to the media and then he wrote a tearful thank you note to all the people who still stood by him when he was almost giving up.
Please read Sulaimon’s heartbreaking note.
MY VINDICATION AT LAST. I couldn’t hold back tears when the judge ( a great woman of
impecable wisdom) said: “ur case has been striked out due to lack of evidence against you. And an apology letter should be sent to ur family for all dat was labelled against u and how she had advised me not to take what the media had tried to do to my image seriously, that it is a passing phase and one of those lessons in life”.
Infact my heart almost jumped out of my chest. I remember how I almost gave up during my trial… I remember how my mom and my younger brother had kept the flames of hope burning and kept telling me all was well… I remember how uncle jamiu abari kept calling my mom and wanted to come to ibadan too… I remember the amazing role my extended family played…
I remember how I didn’t eat for 12days (not even a drop of water) and how my mum kept appealing to me to eat… I remember how some of my students had come to court to testify that I had not committed any act of sodomy with them…
I remember how I cried… I remember the first, second and third asthma attacks… I remember how I allowed lice stay in my hair… I remember the humiliation, the insult and the curses…
I remember the torture at the state CID… I remember my lawyer’s words of encouragement… I remember how the person who was suppose to be my friend had sent my photos to the press… I remember all the negative comments by the people I called my friends…
I remember the inmate who was convicted of murder whom despite his agonies had prayed for me…
I remember Tope Ogunkunle who visited me in prison against all odds and how she cried… I remember how Mrs Ogunkunle (Tope’s mom) had called to pray for me and assured me all was well… I remember how my younger brother Al-aleem visited me everyday and had to spend two thousand each day he came…
I remember the prison warder whom I told my story and how he cried… I remember on the day of my passing out parade I was in prison… I remember I wore one cloth for 18days… I remember the looks on my mom’s face after my vindication, it was a mixture of joy and pity… I remember how my lawyer had suggested we sue the complainant and how my mom had said NO!!! That it wasn’t worth it…
I remember how I looked back at the prison after my release… I remember how my assumed best female friend had antagonized me behind me… I remember how I couldn’t read the news in the paper… I remember I wrote a short story (A tale of a wasted life) and never knew I would be a victim of my own story…
I sincerely don’t know why tears is running down my face as I write this… To all who stood my me, prayed for me and sent good will messages all I can say is THANK YOU and GOD BLESS.
To my mum (a woman with the body of a queen and the heart of a brave lion) I can’t find the right words to thank you.
To Alhaji Sadiku (I won’t forget how u wore one cloth for ten days all because of me),
To my younger brother Al-aleem, all the time we went to court u would hold my hands and assure me all was well – thanks a billion times.
To uncle Jamiu Abari u are indeed a force to reckon with,
Uncle Ibrahim, mr Aroyehun, mr Hassan, Alhaja Balogun may God bless you,
Omolade and Olalekan I won’t stop thanking God for having u both in my life,
to Tope Ogunkunle and Mrs Ogunkunle against all odds, u stood ur ground, prayed for me and infact Tope visited me in prison. thanx for the luv u showed. I will forever be grateful to u,
to my extended family “The Abari’s” and to those who were at least sensible enough to call my family to find out what the real story was, I would say but a big thank you to all of you,
and to those who upon hearing the news and had to pass judgement (even without proper probe) I would say ” when a story is told it is important we find out the truth about such a story before passing judgement or assigning blames in other not to run into what I like to call the dangers of a single story and misrepresentation. A great lesson learnt.

Gospel singer Kefee, in a chat with Encomium Magazine while trying to defend her Kokoroko song with secular singer Tamara, told this interesting story of her experience with now happily married Ese Walter’s COZA pastor, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.
You started out as a traditional gospel singer, along the line your deviated. Would we say you re-branded?
If you have my album or albums, you would know that I am doing same kind of music, but different genres. For instance, the kind of songs in Branama 1 is the same with other songs, but with improved production and vocals.
Some people were not happy because you featured Timaya in Kokoroko and he’s a secular singer. How would you react to that?
Before I react to that question, let me tell you this short true story. In 2008, I was invited to perform at a church (name withheld) in Abuja for the second time. The publicity for the show was massive, they had distributed invitation card to guests, people were even calling to confirm if I was going to perform. In fact, I got copies of the flyers weeks before the show.
I was getting ready to go to the airport when I got a call from the pastor’s P.A, asking if I had seen a certain newspaper’s story about me. I said yes, it was a scandal.
And he said they don’t want to have anything to do with me because of that scandal. Besides, he added that they have top government officials who worship in their church, and all sort.
I said ok, but the so-called senior pastor, who called me initially to plead with me to accept a certain amount because it was a new church couldn’t call me anymore, he had to send his P.A to tell me that. He didn’t care what happened to me, if it was true what said about me by an angry, bitter man.
I felt really low not because I didn’t do the show but because they cared less what happened to me, because that would have been the end of my career.
Now, I called Timaya. We met at a studio somewhere in Festac town, and Timaya asked me about the same scandal. And he told me what I expected a man of God would’ve told me. I remember, he said to me:
“Don’t worry, if your hands are clean, you will see God turn things around for you. God will help you, my sister.”
I say this in all sobriety, after which we recorded Kokoroko. When Kokoroko came out and Timi (Dakolo) listened to it, he said “Kefee, you dey make me like God in a different way.”
Now, you tell me, who acted like a good human? Who would have ever thought that the so-called man of God, who now has his share of scandal and is still planning a robust reply would act that weird?
So, when I heard people talking about me featuring Timaya, it sounded funny. God can use anything, anybody.
Music is an art that transcends all. Timaya was good for that song and he delivered, that’s what matters to me.
I don’t judge people. If he was a doctor, you won’t say he shouldn’t treat you because he isn’t a Christian. It won’t matter then. All you would want is have him do his job and that was what he did. He did a good job on that song you can’t deny that. And to me, that’s what counts.
Many people have criticized you because of your way of dressing, saying that it is not Christ-like. How would you react to that?
Really? I dress the way I like, I like my African print and again, everyone can’t like every style or design. So, that’s acceptable.
Abductors of Inengite Nitabai, the 70-year old uncle of President Goodluck Jonathan, have demanded a N500m ransom, Sahara Reporters report.
A security source said that the abductors threatened to kill him if the family fails to produce the money. The source also said the family had constituted a committee to evaluate the demand, establish negotiations with the abductors and facilitate his release.
He said the kidnappers had also warned against the involvement of security operatives in the matter.
“The kidnappers contacted the family four days after and demanded a whopping sum of N500m. It is believed that the family of the victim has begun negotiations with the hoodlums,” he said.
Tension and panic set in when the kidnappers failed to establish any contact with the family of their victim three days after he was abducted.
That development was said to have rattled the Presidency, which reportedly ordered a massive deployment of security in Otuoke, the hometown of the Jonathans, and the Niger Delta creeks.
The gunmen abducted Nitabai on Sunday after collecting about N400,000 from his wife.
