Beautiful Nubia’s Message To African Leaders Tags: News Celebrity Beautiful Nubiam Entertainment Music

Beautiful Nubia, born Segun Akinlolu isn’t a conventional singer. That much is obvious from his looks, his music and style. They say he sings what is called African folklore songs but the singer once confirmed to Potpourri that he is much more than that.

He said he is a messenger and his songs, the message.
Undoubtedly, Beautiful Nubia’s songs are built on rich folkloric traditions and native wisdom but his message is universal in thrust and theme: “Value life, respect nature and learn to live in peace with others”. 

The music speaks for the voiceless and champions the dream of a balanced society where individuals are truly free and equal. It preaches love and tolerance but also urges people to stand and defend their rights when trampled upon anywhere in the world” says Wikipaedia on his profile. But there is another streak to the dreadlocks wearing Vet turned musician and that is of activism. 

He has lent his voice to many issues in the past. The latest one, which he sent through the Blackberry messenger, is his message to African leaders.

Hear him: “Everything seems to be a source of joke and fun for the Nigerian. It could be a looming disaster like the 2015 elections, the President’s wife’s unforgivable and unfeeling public gaffes, politically sponsored bombings that spread fear and sadness, or an immediate concern such as the Ebola threat” he began.
“What should make us cry seems to make us burst out in an orgy of mirth and backslapping revelry. As we speak, African leaders are busy making a mockery of themselves in Washington and selling the future to their eternal masters. The Powers of the West are good at telling you that Africa is rising when we all know the continent is sliding more backward than ever. 

And just before they got the leaders, the smart Americans hosted a bunch of young Africans who had been handpicked as future leaders of the continent.

These ones then will become the agents who will work against their people in the years to come. So, we keep rolling our ‘nyashes’ to our pathetic pop music, celebrate our overrated “appointed” authors who speak the language of distraction, and follow the English Premier League with the kind of passion that some people put into national development.

The West is selling a dud to our present leaders, and they have already lined up those who will take over and do their bidding in the future. So, let the laughter ring from Cape Town to Calabar, from Lilongwe to Lagos, from Zanaga to Zaria, from Jo’burg to Jos. “Africa Rising– O Ye!” Jokers” he said.

Actress-Lupita Nyong’o Covers Vogue Magazine’s July Issue Tags: Celebrity Actress Entertainment Lupita Nyong’o Magazine

It's official: Lupita Nyong'o is having the best year ever!
In March, she won an Oscar for her role in 12 Years a Slave. Three months later, the Yale University graduate joined the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII. And now, Nyong'o's landed her first Vogue cover.
The actress is profiled in the magazine's July 2014 issue, reaching yet another milestone in her career.

"It just feels like the entertainment industry exploded into my life," Nyong'o says. "People who seemed so distant all of a sudden were right in front of me and recognizing me—before I recognized them!"
Nyong'o first realized that her life would never be the same after the SAG Awards in January, when she was mobbed by paparazzi at the airport. "For a split second I looked behind me to see who they were flashing at—and it was me!" she recalls. "That was, I think, the beginning of the end of my anonymity."

Winning an Academy Award only intensified the interest in the newcomer. "I had already gotten the nomination, which was truly, truly astounding, and enough," she remembers. "Even in my dreams of being an actor, my dream was not in the celebrity. My dream was in the work that I wanted to do."

When her name was read out, the experience was, as she recalls, "very confusing, very numbing. I was just repeating my name in my head, so I didn't know whether I had said my name or they had said my name! And then my little brother screamed, and time was suspended and it was just noise in my head."

Nyong'o worried about tripping as she made her way up the stairs, she recalls, because "it's not cute if you follow Jennifer Lawrence—it's not cute if you're the second one!" The actress adds, "People are still filling me in on what happened after. My mother says I cried during the speech; I don't believe her."

Beginning with a film festival in September 2013, Nyong'o made more than 60 red carpet appearances. She worked with stylist Micaela Erlanger, whom she met through her Non-Stop co-star Michelle Dockery. The two met for "epic six-hour fittings," Nyong'o recalls. "It's a job; it's work, you know. We'd just try, try, try, try, try, try, try. At first it was very daunting, but I ended up really having fun with it."
More often than not, Nyong'o explains, "the dress let me know it was going to be worn. It's quite scary when you fall in love with a dress, because it's nothing to do with your brain. It's like a gut reaction."

Long before her press tour began, she recalls, "Everyone said, 'Brace yourself, Lupita! Keep a granola bar in that clutch of yours!' I didn't really understand what they meant, and it was only once it was past that I realized that my body had been holding on by a thread to get through this very intense experience.

Nothing can prepare you for awards season," she reveals. "The red carpet feels like a war zone, except you cannot fly or fight; you just have to stand there and take it." The It Girl then laughs and tells Vogue, "I hope they don't make that the big quote! Because that would be sad! Tell them not to do that!"

Love Me, Love My Kid – Actress Vicky Zugah Suggested Tags: News Celebrity Entertainment Vicky Zugah Actress

Single mothers rarely give up the dream of finding love and making a life with someone other than that of their baby father. Occasionally everything just falls beautifully into place but most of the time, things dont work so smoothly.

Sometimes the child seems to be the obstacle to finding a mate and it takes some strength to fight the temptation to hide the child when a potential man comes along. Screen goddess Vicky Zugah, has been a strong single mother who says “love me, love my child”.

Recounting her experience, she told Showbiz, “All this time as a mom, I was hoping to meet a lover who would embrace me and my child so we can go on to live ‘happily ever after’.

“So I met this guy who was well-to-do and we started something. Everything was smooth to the extent that he wanted to go down the aisle with me. I was happy and began preparations only for him to come later and tell me that his family was not comfortable with him having a single mother as a partner. To me, that was bull***t so I told him I wouldn’t denounce or hide my daughter and if that is the case then we should go our separate ways.

“Anytime a man wants to have something to do with me, the first thing I do is to tell him about my daughter so I did the same thing to him and he was cool only for him to come later and give me that excuse. I could have agreed to take my daughter to live with my mother so I can enjoy my luxury but I didn’t and I told myself that he wasn’t my mister right”, she said.

Vicky said that seeing her daughter grow up healthy, intelligent and beautiful gives her satisfaction and a reason for living. “She’s the best thing that has ever happened to me and I will not allow any man ruin our relationship,” she said.

There is a disconcerting myth about single mothers in our largely traditional society that they are wayward and irresponsible but according to Vicky, she cared less.“I made a mistake and so what, my life would not end because of that. I love my daughter and I find joy in her and I don’t care whatever society thinks,” she said.

Vicky acknowledged, however, that raising a child as a single mother for the past eleven years has been a very challenging situation. “It is tough because you have to be the provider, the comforter, the teacher and the disciplinarian all in one. This can be daunting because sometimes it seems that you are on a treadmill constantly going round and round”, she said.

Opening up for the first time about why she is not with her baby father, Vicky said she was not ready to relocate to New York to live there with him just as the guy was not ready to spend the rest of his life with her in Ghana.

Vicky Zugah is from the Volta, born to Mr. Komla Zugah and Ms Beatrice Patu. She has three siblings of which she is the third. If she is not on set, then she is watching movies or reading.

She started acting about 10 years ago when she was recommended to a director. She has a large number of movies to her credit. Among them are Keeping the Promise, Twixted, The Bible, My Dearest Princess, Girls Connection, Stand by me, Agatha, Pretty Queen, The Bible, The Return of Beyonce, Tears of Womanhood, Pretty Queen, True Colours, Girls Connection, Big Girls Club, Araba Lawson, June 4th, Cross my Heart, and Total Exchange .

She has acted alongside other well-known actors such as Stella Damascus, Zack Orji, Muna Obikwe, Stephanie Okereke, Eucharia Anunobi, Peter Bruno, Jackie Appiah, Majid Michel, late Enebeli Elebua, Ramsey Nouah, Desmond Elliot, and Yvonne Nelson.
