Life is beautiful no matter how hard a lot of people try to make it seem as if it is a war zone.
I know it’s not a bed of roses but neither is it a bed of thorns and it’s on this note that I welcome you and yours to this week’s 360 entertainment round up.
African rapper No 1 – MI announced on twitter earlier tonight that Illegal Music 2 will drop on February 16, 2012.
MI ft Loose Kaynon - Lost (2.8 MiB, 1,858 hits)
We all know John Okafor aka Mr Ibu because he is one actor that as carved a niche for himself in the movie business in Nigeria.
His job basically is to make people laugh but unfortunately on 24th of January he lost his son Mandela. Mandela who was two years old was said to have died from complications he had from food poisoning. We pray that God grants him and his family the strength and fortitude to bear the loss.
Veteran Yoruba actor – Lekan Lekinson passed away on January 25, 2011 in Osun state, after a prolonged battle with diabetes. May his soul rest in peace.
Controversies and scandals are two factors that have always plagued the entertainment industry for eons so people hardly bat eyelids when a celeb does something “controversial” but no one expected the daughter of the late shepherd of Bethel Ministries, Pastor Gabriel Oduyemi – Funmi Oduyemi to be involved in a sex scandal!
Apart from being the daughter of a respected clergyman, Funmi has also made appearances in the BET gospel “Sunday’s Best” so a lot of people were surprised. The pictures were supposedly released by an ex lover ( a lot of perverts are glad he did) and the pictures are anything but religious as her posture in the nude pictures would rival that of a professional stripper.
Funmi has not made any official statement regarding the pictures and who released them but we are going to keep our eyes on her (not her nude pictures oh) and give you the gist as it becomes more exposed (..erm).
Ese Andre, this is Big Brother!
Every year a lot of reality shows grace our TV screens but none comes close to the Big Brother franchise (even rivals my lovely ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’) and ever since it landed in Africa it has produced a lot of entertainment, nudity (shower hour) and millionaires.
However this year they have decided to raise the bar with a double package! Yep I really do mean double!

On the foreign scene, the queen of soul – Aretha Franklin called off her wedding ceremony (for the 3rd time) with long term partner William Wilkerson. The singer, who had earlier announced the pair’s engagement on January 1, 2012, stated that ‘Will and I have decided we were moving a little too fast, and there were a number of things that had not been thought through thoroughly’.
‘There will be no wedding at this time’, her statement read. It seems like mama Aretha is having cold feet after all.
Following the love path, Jason Derulo announced that he and Jordin Sparks are in a relationship (like say we no know before)
After months of romantic scenes, R&B star, Jason Derulo finally confirms the status of his relationship with the American Idol season six winner Jordin Sparks. ‘We are together’, the MTV Awards nominee says
Legendary singer Etta James, died of complications from leukemia while receiving care at a Riverside hospital.
She was 73 and had been in failing health for years. She died at a Southern California hospital last week Friday.
It was all celebration galore for 9ice as he marked his 32nd birthday and he got a rather strange gift from industry mate Vector – “a cow”! Odd right? And he rounded it up with an industry nite show at the prestigious oriental hotel with a lot of A-listers turning up to support him.
Mocheddah celebrated her graduation in grand style at a Channel O/ Hennessy party organized in her honour at hush night club.
Before we conclude this week’s round up we are gonna give y’ all a follow up of last week’s stories. Seal as revealed that his temper was probably the reason why his marriage with Heidi Klum failed on the Ellen show; 2face says he is not a womanizer (huh!) and Daddy Showkey has decided to protect himself since according him the Nigerian police have failed to do so, so when next you see a shao kan looking dude with dreadlocks be rest assured that it’s our own very ghetto soldier Daddy Showkey protecting himself.
And that’s all peoples and i will see you all on the flipside. One last words for all those students clamouring for ASUU to call off the strike, it’s not like y’ all read there anyways!
Y’ all just want to go back to school and get laid! Stay cool and live life on the 360 highway with no BS.
