its going with the current trend and international exposure. US artists are taking more notice of the African music scene and the most recent is US rap star Chingy who on saturday announced a collaboration with the legend 2Face and UK afrobeats artist May7ven on twitter.
Although the song has not officially been released yet in Africa, you can listen to it on Chingy’s website www.chingyjackpot.com.
According to Linda Ikeji, 2face and Annie Idibia are expecting baby #2 with Annie said to be about 5 months pregnant. It’ll be 2face’s 7th child but his 2nd with his wife, Anne Idibia nee Macaulay.
From the picture above you know it’s not far fetched to see that Anne is definitely pregnant (or just had a HUGE dinner). It was taken at the Peace awards in Abuja this past Saturday.

New heat from Limpopo chairman (we’ll be
calling him that from now on), and his new tune
features StarBoy King, WizKid. Ever since his
hit single, Limpopo, Kcee (former of KC Presh)
has not shown any signs of slowing down at
all. It’s full speed ahead and this tune will do
well to keep his name buzzing.

Kcee Pull Over! Enjoy.
Picking Things’ rapper and King of the South ‘Yung6ix’ floated his imprint ”Kash Kamp” a few months back, the camp houses Percy (whom was featured on Yung6ix’s most recent single ‘First Class’) as well as talented producer Otee Beatz. Yung6ix’s camp welcomed a hand offered from ‘Trick Billionaire Musiq” for both parties to partner with the end-result of taking Yung6ix and his brand out of Africa and sharing his brilliance with the rest of the world. The mouth-watery deal is rumored to be worth about $250,000 with a sign-up fee of $100,000 inclusive and will see the young rapper release his long awaited album ’6′O Clock’ under “Kash Kamp Trick Billionaire Musiq (KKTBM)“; and fans should expect new stellar materials from Onome Onokokwomo in the near future. A rep from KKTBM confirmed this report saying that the music community should expect a wind-whirl from Yung6ix because of the blueprint set and the drive and hunger he has seen in the rapper and also revealed that Onome’s debut album will hit stores in months. More pictures from the signing after the jump!
Still as sexy as she wants to be, Eva Alordiah is gearing up to release the video to her single, Lights Out. Looking extra swagged up, this video looks like it’s going to be a very appealing one to watch.

August 30, 2013 – Lagos Ranked Second Fastest Growing City In Africa & 4th Worst Place To Live In The World
Lagos has been ranked 4th on the list of world’s worst cities to live.
According to an independent economic advisory group named Economist Intelligence Unit, EIU, Lagos shares 137th position with the city of Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea.
Port Moresby & Lagos scored 38.9 % in the ranking.
According to the report released on Thursday August 29, 2013, Lagos was described as 2nd fastest growing city in Africa and the 4th worst city to live in the world.
“Rapid growth is not always a good thing because Lagos is now a magnet for two perpetual threats to peace: pirates and Islamist warriors.Boko Haram have a problem with cities like Lagos and also lots of weaponry. Pirates threaten trade and use kidnapping as a method of funding. Islamist terrorist groups such as Boko Haram (“Education is forbidden”) want to create their own version of heaven on earth by destroying cities such as Lagos and imposing strict sharia law. Lagos has enormous potential but as yet little to show for it – hence its poor ranking,”
