BBNaija 7: Three ladies are interested in me but I’ll consider Chichi- Deji tells Big Brother




Deji has revealed to Biggie how Doyin, Chomzy and Chichi have expressed interest in being exclusive with him.

During his diary session, the fake housemate told Big Brother that he feels pressured to choose one of the three ladies but prefers to take his time before making a choice.

Sharing more details, Deji revealed that while Doyin already told him she likes him, he intends to consider Chichi as she has an interesting personality which he would like to explore.

“Doyin told me she likes me but I don’t feel that way yet. I happen to know that Chichi likes me and she gets annoyed when I talk to other people. I am trying to get to know her better. I feel like she has an interesting personality that I am not used to. The only reason I won’t go forward with Chomzy is because of Dotun.”


The housemate further revealed that he feels Dotun’s interest in Chomzy is purely “lust” and he sees no genuine feelings from him. He also shared that another reason for wanting to take things slow with the ladies, is that they each possess strong personalities and no one wants to feel like a second option.

Interestingly, Deji may have missed one out of his list as Allysyn has been quite vocal, albeit to her friends, about nursing feelings for the housemate.

Tonto Dikeh Writes Open Letter To MohBad’s Dad



Controversial Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, has accused Joseph Aloba, father of late singer, Illerioluwa Aloba, otherwise known as Mohbad, of focusing on material things rather than mourning the passing of his son.

Tonto, who expressed displeasure at his actions since the death of his son, had a lot to say about him in an open letter. She posted a picture of Mohbad on her Instagram page and addressed his father, condemning the hasty burial of the singer which took place immediately after his death, an action which led to a public outcry in September 2023.

“I can empathise with the harsh realities of poor conditions, but when it involves your own flesh and blood, your son, it’s truly heartbreaking. How is it that material things or wealth seems to outweigh the love for your own child?

“The hurried and undignified burial of our dear MohBad within a mere 24 hours of his supposed passing, compounded by insufficient arrangements due to financial constraints after getting a whopping sum of N2 million, is deeply distressing considering his status. Need I remind you of the shameless, senseless and inhumane way MohBad’s neck was broken?”


She condemned Mr Aloba’s persistent cry for a DNA test to be conducted on Mohbad’s infant son, Liam, alleging that his interest in the boy’s paternity only grew after some funds were paid into the boy’s bank account. She reminded him that Wunmi was his son’s wife, his current widow and he ought to go to her with his DNA demands.

“The decision to exhume your son’s remains stemmed from a collective outcry of Nigerian youth – which is a testament to our shared concern. While we acknowledged that Mohad is indeed your son, please note, he was a married man, and the responsibility should extend to his wife regardless of any circumstances.

“In your quest for global assistance and DNA verification, it’s crucial to address the right of that woman personally, the one who holds the answers. By the way I totally agree with DNA, but why are you asking Nigerians for DNA and not Wunmi?” the actress added.

“Your immersion in social media, driven by trivialities and fleeting fame, is disheartening. I find solace in the knowledge that you are not a part of my family, sparing us the pain of witnessing your disregard for your son’s memory. It’s bewildering that your discontent only surfaced upon witnessing contributions to your grandson in custody of his mother, your late son’s wife.”

Finally Tonto alleged that Mohbad’s father had capitalised off his son’s death and charged N10,000 to N15,000 to grant interviews. She urged him to do better for the sake of his son.

Nigerian music industry now copying my style, says Portable



Controversial Nigerian singer, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, has claimed that most artistes in the music industry now copy his dance and dressing style.

Portbale stated that the music videos in the industry originate from him and are repackaged by others.

He made this known while featuring on the latest episode of the Afrobeats podcast with Adesope.

Seaking in pidgin, he said, “I blow by myself, even my dance blow. All those dance wey dem dey do, na me get am, dem just dey pieces am. Na my network dem dey use for industry now. Go check all the videos for industry now, na my dressing; the big clothes, big shoes, ‘small body, big engine’ na my own.


“If you don blow, anything wey you do, dem go dey repackage am. DEM dey do my style of beat and movement. Even dem don dey copy my bad character.”

He also took a swipe at artistes in the inudstry living a fake life.

His words: “Dem go say them build house for Lekki, and you no get the paper. Now, for one land, you go see 17 like landlords. No one plot, two or three plots. Me and you go dey open one door, and say ‘good morning’ and we still be landlord.

“Now, the day wey dem wan demolish or sell the house, who go drop the doument? Who go collect the money? They have been duped.”

Before we blow, e get some artistes wey we dey say ‘God, i wan be like this.’ No dey tell God say you wan be like this, say i want to be like myself. For this industry, e get some wey get money for this industry, and some no get money.’

Spotify’s ‘Wrapped’ unveils Nigeria’s most popular soundscapes, listening habits in 2023



Spotify, on Wednesday, unveiled this year’s edition of ‘Wrapped’, its highly anticipated annual recap of listeners’ musical journeys. This immersive experience provides users with a comprehensive overview of their year in music, allowing them to reflect on their preferences and discover hidden gems. This year’s Wrapped showcases the remarkable diversity of music and the passionate listening habits of Nigerian music enthusiasts.

As the year comes to a close, Spotify Wrapped takes users on a personalised journey through their favourite songs, artists, albums, and genres that defined their musical experience in 2023. Nigeria once again echoed with a vibrant tapestry of musical voices, as talented artists emerged and reigned supreme on the charts. For the third year in a row, Nigerian artistes and songs make up Nigeria’s top ten most streamed artistes, in true showcase of Nigeria’s pride in their own music.

“Nigeria is a hotbed of musical talent, and we’re incredibly proud to showcase the diversity and passion of Nigerian music lovers through Wrapped,” said Phiona Okumu, Spotify’s Head of Music, Sub-Saharan Africa. “This year’s Wrapped is a testament to the power of music to connect people and bring them closer to the culture and traditions of Nigeria.”

In 2023, Nigerian music took the world by storm, reaching unprecedented heights and breaking down barriers. Rema, one of the genre’s brightest stars, has had an extraordinary rise to fame. His collaboration with American pop star Selena Gomez on the hit single Calm down has won him legions of fans worldwide and has become the first African-led single to reach a billion streams on Spotify. A landmark achievement for African artistes, this song is the first by a Nigerian Afrobeats artiste to feature on the top 10 chart of most streamed recordings globally on Spotify. It also tops the Nigerian song export chart, solidifying its position as a global musical phenomenon.

Rema and Asake have also cemented their positions as Afrobeats’ global ambassadors, with Rema holding the title of the most globally exported artist and Asake captivating audiences across Nigeria, Ghana, and Togo, earning him the coveted title of most streamed artist in each country. This continued international success further underscores the enduring appeal of Afrobeats as the most exported genre of the year.

Asake’s dominance continued in the Top 10 most streamed tracks, with three of his hits – Lonely At The Top, 2:30 and Amapiano making the cut. His reign extended to the Gen Z demographic, with Asake becoming the most streamed artiste among Nigerian and Ghanaian Gen Z listeners. His song Lonely At The Top further cemented his popularity among Nigerian Gen Zs, topping the charts for their age group.

Interestingly, Mohbad secured a position in the top 20 list of the most streamed artistes in Nigeria, an attribute to an increased interest in his music following his untimely death. His track Ask About Me was the top streamed track everyday between September 13 and 25.

On the top most streamed female artistes, Spotify RADAR alumnus and 1st time Grammy Nominee, Ayra Starr clinched the title of the most streamed female artist in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda. Mercy Chinwo, a gospel artist, secured a spot among the top 10 most streamed female artists in Nigeria, underscoring the enduring popularity and influence of gospel music.

The throwback charts for 2023 were dominated by the legendary 2Pac, with his song Hit ‘Em Up – Single Version and album Greatest Hits securing the top spots. This resurgence of interest in 2Pac’s music is likely due to the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, the numerous headlines surrounding his death this year, and his enduring status as one of the most influential and successful rappers of all time. As a result, many Nigerians turned to Spotify to stream his music, solidifying his position in the charts.
