‎M.I:  I WANT TO WORK WITH HUGH MASKELA AND SALIF KEITA


M.I has expressed a desire to collaborate with a number of legendary African artistes including Hugh Maskela, Youssou N'Dour, Salif Keita and Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

 

He disclosed this today while responding to questions at the 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards announcement event at Cova Lounge, Victoria Island, Lagos. The superstar rapper further revealed that such collaborations are part of his ambition to connect the young African audience to the older generation of African musicians. In his words,

 

"I think we have done great in terms of creating a vibrant modern African music scene and the young audience really connects with that, but it would really be great to be able to connect the young audience with the older generation of African musicians. Africa has such a rich musical history and it would be a shame to lose part of that history. My next ambition is to connect the younger audience with this older generation of African musicians.

 

The 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards will take place in Durban, KwaZulu Natal in South Africa on July 18, 2015.

Governor Oshiomhole during the thanksgiving service organised for him for his wedding to his Cape Verdian heartthrob revealed during testimony time that he met his wife as a virgin.

The Governor was educating the youth members of the church of the need kick corruption in all its ramifications, including domestic and moral corruption. He boasted that with an APC Comrade as the the helmsman of the Country’s politics, a revolutionary change has swept over the whole country.


According to the Comrade, “I implore all of you to fight corruption today because the APC Government is one that will not condone corruption, not even domestic corruption.

I can boldly tell all of you that I was a very principled man during my first marriage, I didn’t succumb to the worldly pleasures of this lustful environment, even though I had lots of opportunities. And it was this principled sobriety that made me fish for a virgin wife.

I can boldly say to you all that I was the first man to know her and initiate her into the worldly ways. This is the kind of spirit I want Edo youths to inculcate instead of messing around and engaging in different shades of adultery and fornication.”


Oh by the way, we hear the Governor purchased a Private jet for the bride’s parents as a sign of appreciation for training and keeping her clean till marriage.

Meet Veejay, The Fast Rising Gospel Artiste


Can you tell us about yourself and your background?
My birth name is Victor Joseph. I'm sure you can figure out how the moniker 'VeeJay' came about from that. Born March 2nd. I'm the Lastborn in a family of four. I would describe myself as a very passionate person, very emotional too. I have a very deep love for creating and performing music and I'm currently studying music in babcock university. 


When and why did you start singing ?
I started singing at a young age in my church. Why? Well that was probably just because I had the opportunity to. 

‎Which famous gospel artiste do you admire or learned from ?
One name always comes to mind; J Moss. But I've also been greatly inspired by kirk Franklin.

‎‎Does your family have any musical background ? 
Well not really. Even though I would say that my parents' love for music greatly influenced my ear for sound. I was majorly influenced by gospel music in my formative years. But then I began to get exposed to a great deal of music too. And now as a musician I'm influenced by many musical forms.


‎Do you play any instruments?
Yes. I am a drummer and I can also play the keyboard. 

‎If you can change anything about the Nigerian gospel industry, what would it be?
I wouldn't change anything, because I believe everyone has their own standards. The best I can do is be the change I want to see, and that would be projected in the work I do,and the innovations I bring to the table.

‎‎Do you have any fondest musical memories?
Every moment I get to create music is my fondest moment, because that's when I'm happiest. 

Is Too Much your first single?
Not at all. I've got many songs. "Love the way" was my first official gospel song. But I had a couple of secular and alternative songs out before then.

How do you balance your music with other obligations – mate, relaxation, school?
I do my best by God's grace. And it is a fact that a lot of things have balanced themselves out since the rebirth. I owe it all to God and my family who are no doubt my No. 1 fans. 

How do you handle distraction from the opposite sex?
I handle it. Takes a lot of will power I assure you, but I just keep my eyes  on the goal, so I don't get distracted by anyone not going in the same direction as me. 

So, is there any special woman in your life right now?
Yes please. My mom is the "specialest" woman in my life right now.

Many gospel artistes are doing mainstream music like afropop, juju and all, do you see yourself doing that anytime soon?
Like I said, I draw inspiration from a wide range of musical forms. If doing mainstream music would make me compromise my fundamental belief in God and the mandate in my hands to reach the ends of the world with the good news, then no,don't expect me to do that. But if mainstream music would enable me reach a larger audience with the message, then yes. I will be at the forefront of the movement. 

‎And lastly, where do you see yourself in the next five years ? 
On top of my game. Moving at the speed of light. Much wiser, much deeper, and much happier. 

‎That would be all for now but before you go, can you tell us when your next single is due to be released?
My next single will be released when its time and not a moment before.  

‎Thank you Veejay for your time, have a good day.
Thank you. God bless you. Have a great day.

How To Choose A Good Cheap Laptop


The main advantage of a laptop is its portability, it is possible to work on it almost any conditions (at least in the campaign, though on the river, even in the mountains). If mobility is paramount to you, then of course you should buy a laptop. Range of laptops now as wide as the range of computers, so do not take the first available, if you liked, such as its color or size. 

Pay attention to the technical characteristics of the laptop that you want to buy. The market offers laptops for every taste and budget. Of course, the greater the possibility of a laptop, the higher the price, it is necessary to remember. 

Four simple steps to help you choose a good laptop:

1. Decide on the purpose of the laptop: will you use it for work, games or other purposes? How much space do you need? How much time do you have to set up laptop?

2. Then, determine your budget. Laptops are more expensive than desktop computers. To purchase a laptop is recommended to postpone N 140000 (this amount does not include the cost of purchasing software and other expenses).

3. Now select the Seller laptop. There are many shops (online and offline), which sells new and used 

4. In conclusion, buy the software and accessories you need, such as an office suite, laptop bag, etc.

If the laptop with the required technical properties is too expensive for you, you can buy a used, it would be much cheaper.Tasks to be delivered to a laptop, play a crucial role in the issue of what to buy a laptop. With A large display is more convenient to work, but compact and less weight has its positive side. 

Buy a laptop with a screen diagonal of 15.4 inches and 17 as possible for games, as well as for office work. As a rule such laptops because of their size are equipped better than any desktop computer and are fully capable to replace it. If you are constantly on the road, the mobility factor for you is very important, so optimum variant to buy a laptop with a screen for 10 or 12 inches. The screen resolution laptop also strongly influences the choice of a particular model. 

The most common are the following resolution: XGA (1024x768), WXGA (1280x800),WXGA + (1440x900) or SXGA + (1400 x 1050 pixels). For text enough to buy a laptop with a resolution of XGA. At the same time for designers and other people working with graphics, will be preferable to buy a laptop with a resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). High resolution also has a positive effect when watching movies, as well as for gaming. It is also important when buying a laptop to know about technology used in the production of displays. Processor - one of the main components of any computer, including a laptop. 

For more demanding applications (games, graphics editors) it is desirable to buy a laptop with a processor 3 GHz or more. As for the question with which processor to buy a laptop, the leadership here takes Intel. For Normal operation of the laptop need RAM 2 - 4 GB. For working with graphics applications it should be more than 4 GB. If memory is not enough, some of the information will be sent to the hard drive, which will significantly improve energy costs and contribute to overheating For games, you can buy a powerful video card up to 2 GB. There are specialized sites where you can buy very cheap powerful laptops for work and for play. The main thing when buying a laptop pay attention to the seller. It's best to buy a product from a trusted seller with a good reputation.
