Life without entertainment is like a Nigerian lady without her BB and without it the world will be a semi-boring place and it’s on that note that I welcome y’all to this week’s Entertainment Round-up. A lot of stuff went down this week and like we always do we are going to break it down bits by bits starting with the newest baby daddy in town “Ice Prince”
The chocolate city rapper was said to have been involved in a “casual” relationship with 20year old student, Bimbo Babatunde but I guess he forgot the other important “C” or maybe he was taking lessons from the “retired” king himself Tuface as he got her pregnant. The whole pregnancy issue was kept under wraps before she delivered a baby boy on Thursday March 1, 2012. The baby’s name is Toluwalase. Ice prince‘s camp has not made any official statement yet but nevertheless we wish the new baby daddy and mama all the best. I guess our celebs have a condomophobia (I made it up oh) and ladies don’t really mind.
Don Jazzy and D’Banj are two heads that went against all odds to establish themselves in Nigeria’s music scene. Ever since their debut with the song “tongolo” they’ve gone from strength to strength (signing new acts and hooking up with good music) but it seems the fairy-tale is about to come an end!
Certain news have been prominently making rounds across the Internet saying their relationship had been on a downward spiral and Don Jazzy has since moved out of the mansion they once shared in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos.
No official news has come out of the Mo-Hits camp yet but if this is true, then it is a big shock because nobody saw this coming (even my amebo eye no see am) and for the sake of good music I do hope they put their differences aside and make us “Lebete” as always.
In other news, veteran rapper/singer/hip-hop pioneer ELDee has hinted on the song that will make his final track list for his new album .The album entitled Undeniable which he was a co-producer on, was mainly produced by Sarz & Cobhams and it contains tracks like “Been there done that” – eLDee, “Higher” – eLDee ft K9 & Sojay, “Today today” – eLDee, “Always” – eLDee, Rundown-eLDee ft Banky W.

Sojay .and a few surprise bonus tracks for the deluxe edition and make sure you get the album when it finally drops because eLDee drops nothing but the best as the 3 singles off the album have shown( P.S don’t buy a pirated copy, support the Nigerian music industry)
Popular Nollywood actor Femi Adebayo (he cut his teeth in the Yoruba genre) was robbed.
The actor was said to have been coming from a movie set in Sango Otta. On getting to Ogba in Lagos, armed robbers crossed his new black and white Kia Sorento Jeep and took the car away with his uncle (Ahmed) in it. His uncle was later dropped after some minutes.
We learnt the car was abandoned by the armed robbers and found few hours later. This makes it weird because why take the car and drop it after some minutes?
On the foreign scene US rapper David Darnell Brown better known as Young Buck was on Sunday, March 4 shot 11 times in his hometown Nashville by unidentified gunmen who drove by in another car.
Local reports say the gunmen opened fire on Buck from the moving vehicle but that none of the bullets hit him. However a woman riding along with the 30-year-old rapper in his SUV was hit the arm.
The woman according to WSMV in Nashville has been released. A third passenger in the car was also unharmed.
Young Buck was said to have been in his hometown for a music project. The rapper rose to fame in 2002 with his signing to the 50 Cent-led G-Unit records but fell off after a highly publicised feud with the group. Although y’all may think that I’m insensitive but I think this might just a publicity stunt to revive his career. I may be wrong but I’m always right.
And the Kardashian saga continues…
Kim’s ex hubby Kris Humphries is secretly demanding $7 MILLION from Kim Kardashian to walk away from their marriage. The basketballer through his lawyer has given Kim an ultimatum … either pay up, or endure an ugly, public trial. Our sources say Kris and his lawyer have been told to pound sand, and with good reason. For starters, even if there wasn’t a pre-nup, the marriage lasted a grand total of 72 days, so the community property wouldn’t be in the universe of $7 mil. Second, there was an iron-clad pre-nup, which provided that Kim owes Kris zilch. Third, Kris actually MADE MONEY from the marriage. Sources tell us … Kris raked in around $1 mil from the wedding and the TV special that showcased the nuptials. And Kris made off like a bandit because Kim ended up using a portion of what she got to pay for the ring. In addition, we’re told Kris made somewhere between $250,000 and $300,000 from the Kardashian reality show. Looks like the Bank of Kardashian is officially closed!
The weird one gets bigger on twitter. Eccentric pop star Lady gaga now has more than 20 million followers on Twitter, making her the most followed twitter user in the world and pushing her further ahead of her nearest Twitter rivals Justin Bieber. This comes after the annoying but damn hilarious Piers Morgan went past the 2million mark. (See how this people just they gather followers when I still dey manage less than 100, shame no let me call the number)
Before I go ama give a big shout to rhyme master himself Notorious B.I.G who passed on 15 years ago but is still an icon of our time and CD John who cracked our ribs with his hilarious jokes but left way too soon.
HBD Pryse and congrats to Kefee on a wedding to teddy (an OAP) in her home town Sapele.
That’s all peoples, make sure you stay safe and be the best that you can be. Live life as always on the 360 highway with no B.S.
