    Former Nigerian Idol contestant and US based Nigerian performer, Adeniji Jemiriye has faulted “THIS IS NIGERIA”, the currently trending new video by Nigerian rapper Falz.

    Jemiriye believes that the continue chanting of “THIS IS NIGERIA, EVERYBODY IS A CRIMINAL” is an insult on the hardworking innocent Nigerians out there.

    According to the songstress, if Falz believes that every Nigerian is a criminal, then so is his father, Femi Falana; he’s simply saying his own father who has worked so hard as a lawyer is a criminal.

    Below is how Jemiriye shared it on her Facebook page…

    “This Is Nigeria, Everybody Is Not a Criminal

    This is certainly not the truth that Nigerian youths want to hear now, but the trending song “This Is Nigeria”, by Nigerian rapper, FalzThaBahdGuy, which is a cover of the song “This Is America” by US rapper, Childish Gambino, is a colossal disservice to the millions of innocent Nigerians home and abroad working hard everyday and making this country proud.

    Interestingly Falz has always attacked “Yahooboys” for bringing Nigeria’s name to disrepute, but what is the difference between “Yahoo boys” and Falz who just released a song chanting “Every Nigerian Is A Criminal” which is now being reposted on different social media by popular celebrities with millions of followers including American music mogul, Diddy who has more than 10million active followers on instagram?

    Is this song not a weapon of mass destruction to our collective image laundry efforts on this country? As at the time of writing this, “This Is Nigeria…Everybody Is A Criminal” has been viewed by over a million people globally on Falz’s YouTube page alone just 5 days after its release; not to talk of the different instagram pages and YouTube pages it has been shared on. Granted, Nigeria, just like every other countries in the world has a prevalence of crimes of all manners, and we all know that the international media has not even helped the Nigerian and African situation, with their focus on the negative aspects, but doing such a song is a massive dent on the already tainted image of this country.

    We are in an era when innocent Nigerians are being denied Visas because of the sins of the many others, Nigerians in the diaspora not finding it easy to transact businesses with their foreign counterparts and so many other challenges attached to being called a Nigerian, but rather than play his part in changing the conversation, Falz decided to rubbish all of us just because he wants to make a new hit song; and that is extremely disappointing coming from a supposedly learned person. It’s worse than Idris Abdul Kareem’s “Jaga Jaga” which never even insulted hardworking Nigerians anyway, yet intelligently highlights the challenges in the country. Now, i dont know about the millions of youths currently hailing the rapper for “a job well done”, however, i abeg to excuse myself that i am not a criminal. “I deserve some accolades, because i have paid my dues” in the words of actor Charles Okocha.

    We’re here day in day out trying to make the world see Africa in a better light. Look at the incident in Paris on Saturday, the guy from Mali. That’s an African! Look at Nigerians doing us proud both home and abroad. All over the US, Nigerians dominate the universities as lecturers, same as in the health sectors. With my music, i have personally promoted Nigeria’s image widely in the US selling Nigeria and Africa to them, which earned me the spot of the first African artiste to perform the baseball anthem to a stadium full of spectators, proudly rocking my Gele. I have been able to meet many world dignitaries and speak to them more about the beauty of Nigeria and the people and they always show so much interest in learning about this great country. I, including many other Nigerians in the diaspora continually make sacrifices to change negative opinions of foreigners about this country, even as some people change their names, skin color or even jostle to have mixed baby. We have stayed true to this country…And someone is somewhere saying we are all criminals?

    However, what i know for sure is that this table that Falz is shaking has his highly revered dad, Femi Falana on it. And I wonder how he feels about his son saying he is a criminal after all his years of hardwork in the legal profession?

    The rest of the world may continue to inflict injuries on us, but it will be a great injustice if we continue rub salt on the injuries ourselves.

    Even Childish Gambino who owns the original song remixed by Falz never called Americans such derogatory name, while campaigning against the system.

    As a popular Yoruba adage says, only a bastard points to his father’s house with a left hand.

    I repeat, this is Nigeria everybody is not a criminal.
    My name is Jemiriye.

    Hushpuppi Tells Kemi Olunloyo: “Apologize To Linda Before I Will Send You Money”

    Dubai-based Nigerian big boy, Ray Hushpuppi has reacted to Self acclaimed investigative journalist, Kemi Olunloyo post, begging him for money for her medical check up.

    He wrote;

    “It was brought to my attention the posts of one of the great journalists of Nigeria which I have carefully gone through and I must note that I never made mention of Madam Kemi Oluloyo’s name in my video that I made at the airport lounge

    where I gave a general observation as to how the rich tend to mind their business and suggested if we were all doing same, maybe Linda ikeji’s fruit of the womb just wouldn’t be a problem as people are making it.

    I do Appreciate madam Oluloyo’s taste in my fashion and as well Appreciate her works, just like most of her writes up often carries constructive criticism and lash back ,

    I believe it is safe to say her request to beat Linda’s 100k donation which I could have said was from a sarcastic point there after accompanied with a bank details puts me in a dicey position.

    I wouldn’t consider it a wise move crediting the account of a woman that just openly lambasted a fellow female benefactor that was there for her when it mattered regardless of how little the amount now seem to her after her ordeal.

    Before my money becomes blood money in future, maybe I should reconsider the alert part plus Aunty Kemi herself would have called such a person an Ingrate.

    Besides I had my fair share of experience from Mr Jollof in the past, when my act of kindness became a public show as to how he doesn’t need my dime and I should Chanel it on more philanthropical use.

    Let there be one LOVE. Linda and Madam Oluloyo as females are in a better position to understand that precious Grace of the fruit of the womb and should share the female joy as ONE… let Peace Reign. STAND Together, support each other in the Good and bad..

    all we need is One love. I urge madam Oluloyo to write an apology and appreciation letter to Linda openly as we all see you as a role model and a great example of women empowering women for our younger females in the nation to become better people and learn to appreciate each other in our nation.

    If this is done I promise to give all necessary support and provisions in my power to you ma to get better health care and treatment. God bless us all”

    ‘It’s sad that this administration cannot point to any major projects initiated, started and completed’ – Ben Bruce

    Common sense senator, Ben Bruce is once again calling out the President Buhari led administration saying, ‘It is sad that this administration cannot point to any major projects initiated, started and completed in the three years they have been in power except the Daura helipad. It is a weak leader who looks after himself. A strong leader will rather look after the people who he leads’.

     

    He also said, ‘In the last 3 years, some of us leaders built new houses for ourselves, yet we haven’t built new housing estates for the people. We‘ve bought new private jets yet Nigeria still does not have a national airline. This, in my opinion, is the greatest failure of leadership possible’.

    President Buhari is yet to receive the 2018 budget, one week after it was passed by the National Assembly

    Its been revealed that President Buhari is yet to receive the 2018 budget, one week after it was passed by the National Assembly.

    Minister of Budget and National Planning, Udoma Udo Udoma said this after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on Wednesday saying reports credited to him as saying that the President will not sign the budget were false as he was even yet to receive the budget.

    “The President is yet to receive the budget. It is, therefore, impossible to make a statement about the budget that has not been received. Once we get it, we will work very quickly on it. When it is submitted, I am sure the National Assembly themselves will inform Nigerians,” Udoma said.

    The National Assembly on May 16, six months after it was presented, passed a total of N9.120 trillion, an increase of N508 billion from the N8.612 trillion originally presented to the Assembly by President Buhari.  The Chairman Senate Committee on Appropriation, Senator Danjuma Goje explained that after consultation with the Executive, the oil benchmark price was increased from 45 to 51 dollars.
