Has Azonto Met Its Match? | Etighi, A New Dance Craze Sweeping The Land

Dance is the most vibrant part of African culture. Dance goes hand in hand with music and, the fact that most of our pop culture music fixations are dance-able and club-able party tracks just proves that dancing is truly in our blood.
Ever since the “death” of Yahooze a few years ago, Alanta became our dancing fixation in its many mild and wild forms and adaptations. And, before and even during its reign, many a dance have come and gone with the wind. But, slowly but surely, it seems we’re at the end of an era and a new dance craze already rears its ugly head.
Etighi is a dance style that has been subtly on the rise in popularity since the 2010 Calabar festival. And, in this era when Azonto, the Ghanaian dance fad has swept over Africa like a wildfire, trust Nigerians to show their identity. The moment I knew Etighi was truly here and might be here to stay was when I saw the teaser toIyanya‘s club-banging single “Kukere”.
So what do you think? Does Etighi stand a chance? Do you think it’ll last or is this just a phase? Will Azonto overshadow any possibilities that Etighi has? Is Alanta dead? Well, that’s for you to decide. Here is a video showcasing the dance step slowly creeping into the land.
Also, Oba Omega, an artist from Rivers state, has dedicated his new single to the dance craze and a competition with a chance to win a thousand dollars. For more information on the competition, {click here}. Here’s the video to Oba Omega feat. Tony Harmony - Etighi Dance.

Hausas and Yorubas clash in Lagos over murdered youth

Agiliti, Mile 12, Lagos, erupted in violence that lasted for hours on Monday as some Hausa youths clashed with their Yoruba counterparts.

The clash, which started around 7am, began when some Hausa youths allegedly attempted to dump the corpse of a man they had reportedly slaughtered in the Maidan River.
A man, who declined to give his name, told our  correspondent that, “This morning, we were not far from the river when we saw the Hausa youths trying to dump a corpse in the river. We immediately accosted them and demanded to know where they got it from and what happened to the man. The youths told us he was caught during a robbery.

“The body showed that the man had been brutally beaten. It was noticed that he had been slaughtered too. So, we asked them why they killed him and why did they not hand him over to the police if he was a robber.
“Before we know it, the whole area had been roused and we had been overwhelmed by the Hausa youths. We had to leave the scene after some scuffle.”
The youth told our correspondent that the Hausa residents who stayed behind later burnt all motorcycles in sight.
When our correspondent got to the scene, a large crowd of youths, who were speaking Hausa, were seen destroying shops and kiosks on three streets in the area.
A police helicopter hovered in the sky, while nine police patrol vehicles and a Rapid Response Squad’s Armoured Personnel Carrier were stationed at the scene, but this did not deter the youth from destroying shops.
Three streets; Nuhu Oluwo, Oniyanrin and Adeyeye, were completely taken over by the Hausa youth who wielded clubs, pipes and machetes and other weapons while they ransacked every shop on the streets.
Some of them broke into a shop, pulled down the door and carried away two air conditioners they found inside.
Some of the youth also attempt to pull down the roof of the shops.
Our correspondent noticed that they had earlier broken into other shops on the streets. Other youths were seen grabbing loafs of bread in a shop they had broken into.
However, some older Hausa men were seen appealing to the youth to stop the violence.
A youth who brought out an amulet and wore it on his arm, was told to pocket it, while another man, Alhaji Gambo Limani, slapped a youth who broke a bottle on the ground and wielded it as a weapon.
When our correspondent later spoke to Limani, he said, “I had to caution them because most of these youths are hoodlums. They would blow the problem beyond proportion.
“I really don’t know the basis for this whole crisis because I just got back from Sokoto this morning. My main concern is to ensure they don’t cause crisis in this area.”
When our correspondent asked Limani about the whereabouts of the Sarkin Hausa (head of the Hausa community) of the area, he said the Sarkin had travelled.
Our correspondent reports that Oniyarin Street was completely deserted and the majority of the residents locked themselves up in their residences.
When asked why the area was deserted, a youth said, “These people (Hausa men) are many in this area. They inhabit most of the houses here. Anybody who has his life to protect should not attempt to go close to that area.”
Our correspondent watched from a safe distance as the rampaging youths smashed the windscreen of a bus in the presence of the policemen who made no effort to stop them.
The youths spoke in Hausa, occasionally pointing their sticks at the policemen to dare them.
The Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of operations in the state, Mr. Tunde Sobulo, later came to the scene and dispersed the youth. He addressed the policemen and gave them directives on how to man the area.
When our correspondent attempted to speak with him, he simply said, “This is operation. I don’t have any comment to make now.”
But the spokesperson of the Lagos State Police Command, Mr. Joseph Jaiyeoba, who spoke with our correspondent on the telephone, said the police were being cautious because the clash was between two ethnic groups.
Jayeoba said, “The police got a report early this morning about a corpse of a man that was  allegedly killed in Oniyanrin area of Mile 12. Policemen were quickly drafted to the area to remove the corpse. The clash was due to perenial accusations between the Yoruba and Hausa residents.
“In any case, the DCP operations and the area commander have been there to restore peace. The area commander has also invited the heads of the two ethnic groups in the area and all other stakeholders to resolve the issue. Right now the area is calm.”

Red Carpet Ready? Learn How To Put Your Best Foot Forward!

There’s a huge misconception that the only concern when preparing for an event should be ’what will I wear?‘.  Of course it is not to be a naked fête but as much attention should be paid to certain areas often ignored, that are just as important.
Skin care.  What is a good looking (sometimes expensive) dress to an unhealthy skin? The necessity of a healthy skin goes  far beyond the physical appearance, its an insight into a person’s lifestyle (smoking, quantity of alcohol ingested routinely, amount of water consumed daily and type of diet). It might be surprising to hear that caring for your skin now is by far cheaper than having to later on deal with future skin defects. *insert sarcasm*
Here are a few inexpensive skin care regimens; of course as the skin is the largest organ of the body, these tips cover the face, underarms,thighs and any other areas of choice. Application of regimen depends on sensitivity of area and skin thickness. The first world’s best secret to a good skin is not using very hot water to bathe. That’s right! Somewhere we learnt it keeps the skin soft? Excessively hot water dries out your skin, and that’s not good-your skin needs to lock in moisture to remain healthy.  Relatively hot/ warm water is advised, cleans you up nicely and boosts blood flow.
Basic things to know, wash your face before application of facial masks, or steam regimen(whichever regimen you decide to adopt will be effective) before going to bed-this helps the skin ‘breathe’ and prevents accumulation  of natural oil secreted by the skin (which leads to acne).
And you don’t have to sell out all your properties to acquire effective skin products or adopt a daily regimen. The steam/ice pack is a magnificent combo. In a basin filled with hot water, hold your face above the bowl, but beneath a cloth/towel for 5-10minutes, this acts as deep cleanser and opens up clogged pores and lets out impurities. Added advantage of clearing up the sinuses. Right after this,  squirt the juice of a freshly sliced lemon on a face cloth and nicely clean up every area of your face. This helps cleanse the skin of dead cells, and also aids in giving an even skin tone. Rinse out  with warm water and hold in place an ice pack over your face for a few minutes to tighten those pores.
Green tea ice facial is all the rave, see here  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGt3DBDHLy4&feature=related
Make-up. For some, make-up is an enhancing property, for others, its a transformation property;whichever it is, the common base is having a daily skincare regimen to maintain great skin. It is advised to start off by using a cleanser ( a natural mixture of honey+olive oil+ sugar). This combination is great for ex-foliation. Apply moisturiser, this helps your make-up sit properly as opposed to having a rough and thick  composite. Primers and concealers are a sure way of getting an evened out and flawless look. Apply lightly, apply precisely.
Personal Style. It’s only wise to adopt a personal style in this season where one can’t keep following trends if only for the simple reason that these trends change twice as fast as or faster than you get money. I bet it is hard to keep up! Stay inspired by trends and what is hot on the streets, but steer clear from being  a slave to trends. Something about being different/standing out no matter what you’re doing pays off regularly and this advice is no different for a red carpet event!
Hair. We’ve been blessed with the ability to switch up hairstyles whenever we want. Try colour, try length, try curls, try short, try straight. Have fun with your hair- keep it fresh and clean always! Do not be limited, and Do not forget to drink lots of water! Water keeps your hair fibres moist and shiny and gives that shiny look we love so much. Water also prevents your skin from drying out too.
My natural hair swears by http://moptopmaven.blogspot.com/.
Regulation of diet and exercise are equally influential in having a healthy skin and hair. One does not exist without the other!

Policeman shoots tanker driver over N20k bribe, kills painter with stray bullet

 An unidentified police sergeant attached to Area ‘C’ Police Command, Iponri, Surulere, Lagos, allegedly went beserk and shot a truck driver on his left hand and a stray bullet he fired killed another person while he was making efforts to escape from the scene of the incident to avoid being lynched by an angry mob.

An eyewitness said that trouble started when the cop with about five others who were operating in a (danfo) commuter bus blocked the truck with a Lagos registration number RV538 EKY driven by Saheed Mufutau (pictured above). The incident occurred at Jimoh Odutola Street, by PHCN office, Surulere, Lagos on Friday.

According to the source, the policeman, after checking the truck’s particulars and they were up to date, demanded for a N20,000 bribe which the driver pleaded he could not afford because he was in the area to off-load empty containers.

During the ensuing argument, the sergeant allegedly shot the driver in his left hand. Sensing danger, his colleagues in the danfo bus sped off and left the sergeant to his fate.
In his desperate bid to escape from the scene, the cop fired several shots into the air to scare the mob from lynching him. One of the bullets he fired hit Dotun Alawiye, a motor spray painter at a nearby workshop. He died instantly.
The erring sergeant still managed to escape with the help of a motorcyclist he forced to ferry him away from the area.

He was later arrested at Bode Thomas Police Division and handed over to the Area ‘C’ Police Command where he was serving.
 Chairman of Artisans Association at Doyin bus stop, where the deceased painter had his workshop, Mr. Gbenga Shoneye, said they heard the gun shots at the bus stop but did not know one of them had been hit by a stray bullet.

“We are appealing to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police to ensure that justice is done because the deceased had a wife and four children,” he said.
Wife of the deceased Mrs. Omolara Karounwi, 30, said she was shocked to hear that her husband was killed by a stray bullet because he was an easy-going person who never got involved in any trouble.
“We had been married for 15 years and blessed with four children. How am I going to cope with the upkeep and training of the children?” she wept.
She called on the authorities to ensure that justice is done on the murder of her husband, while also soliciting for the assistance of kind Nigerians on the upkeep of her four children.



Unilag students are however angry with their Fire Service men, as they were the last to get to the fire scene, even though they are right in the school premises. God help Nigeria.
