Yvonne nelson zeron campaign
  Actress who is the face of the cosmetics brand smoulders in this 2013 ad campaign for Zaron Hair and Make-up.

BBA: Viewing inspiration from The Chase

Malawi’s Natasha was nominated for eviction…again! She’s been nominated every week since the show started.

Another girl who seems to be down on her luck is Jess from New Girl (Saturdays at on M-Net Series). She lost her job teaching grade-schoolers and now wastes away her days in front of the TV. Much like Malawi’s Natasha life just isn’t cutting her a break.


Namibia’s Maria
 refuses to start a romance with Angelo. Angelo likes her and they’ve kissed before. But she also admitted in her diary session that she’s starting to get a little frustrated if you know what I mean.

It seems that Namibia’s Maria and Olivia Pope from The Fixer (Mondays on M-Net) are in the same boat. But, Olivia has reluctantly started a romance with someone else because she can't be with the man she really loves, the president of the USA. There's a lot of the same kind of frustration going down in this love triangle. 


Each morning we watch as the housemates whip up their breakfast of choice, putting their culinary skills to the test. From healthy fruit salads to hearty eggs and beans. They were also tasked to do a cooking challenge recently. 

Love it? Then don’t miss this tasty opportunity to brush up on your cooking skills with Nairobi’s top sous chef from The Boma Hotel who will be a guest on Mashariki Mix on 2 July on Africa Magic Entertainment. 

Check out the Big Brother website and be sure to vote to keep your favourite housematein the house..

Wizkid reveals album tracklist

He posted the tracklist on his Instagram page with a holla "Plus more Jams! #TheAlbum #EME. #StarBoy! Yaga!", Wizkid wrote posting the photo on Instagram

Although he revealed some of the stars who will spice up the album, Wizzy left other tracks as code for music folks to unravel. 

The album, which sees the hit song Jaiye Jaiye top the list, surprisingly features his former boss, Banky W on All of U

The album is a star studded one and also features legendary Afrobeat act Femi Kuti, Ghanaian song goddess, Efya, Seyi Shay and Mavin Records boss Don Jazzy.

Munachi Abi opens up on her relationship with Peter Okoye & Lola

Do you believe in love at first sight?
Yes, it could happen. It is possible.
Is this what happened between you and Peter Okoye (PSquare) love at first sight?
Look, I know Lola Omotola very well. I have known her for years and we are really close. All those things you heard or read about us are not true. Peter Okoye and I are friends. I know his family well. I was just invited to be in his video (Ifunanya) and that was it. Nothing more than that. I know how Peter and Lola love each other and I respect their love. I could never do that to them. I could never bring myself to do anything to hurt them.
It’s good to have you clear the air!
(She interrupts) What you’ll see is another screaming headline, “Muna again denies affair with Peter Okoye.” It’s not fair, it’s heartbreaking and very frustrating. Some of these things you media guys write about us hurts us so badly.

Brain Debuts On International Stage.


In less than a month of signing a Record Label deal with MAGiKAL Entertainment, BRAIN will be doing his first performance on an International stage at the forthcoming Ghana Meets Naija at Accra on Saturday 29th July, 2012.
BRAIN will be rocking the stage alongside top Ghanaian acts like EL, R2Bees, D-Black, Samini, Okyeame Kwame, Raquel, etc and fellow Nigerians such as Wizkid, Timaya, Don Jazzy, Burna Boy, etc.
This enviable feat was made achievable by the CEO of Empire Entertainment, the one and only Bola Ray (we call him Ghana's showbiz guru) who is the organiser of the annual event running in its 3rd year. Our sincere appreciation goes to him.
Patience they say is virtue. With humility and patience there's nothing in the world you can't achieve.
Watch out for BRAIN's videos of "So Crazy" and "Watcha U Looking At?" by MattMax; and an internationally produced single dropping soon.
BRAIN is surely set to make Naija proud at Ghana Meets Naija so everyone should look forward to a sterling performance by this enigmatic rapper.
Naija no dey carry last oo, sorry Ghanaians ooo!!!

ARTICLE: LOVE LETTER TO VECTOR BY WALE APPLAUSE


I know I risk a 14 year jail term with this title, but being in a different
time zone for the weekend, therefore I decided to do this from my very
short stay here.
Before I continue, I must say this to you, Vector a.k.a Lanre, 104 years
ago, I wasn’t just indifferent about you, I did not like you, and I guess
you care less.
I write you this letter to tell you about my experience with your album,
THE SECOND COMING. I always had this album of yours from weeks after
release, but sadly I never ever listened to it cos I did not believe in it
or like you either.
But days ago…
There was a fierce argument in my friends Caravan about your song, self and
career with a lot of ado, I forcefully decided to listen to your album.
The core objective of it was to have nails to crucify you and I needed you
to carry your cross to Golgotha, I know you’ll understand that, you a smart
gee.
I also needed to check out the love my friends and colleague have for you
if it was sincere or just the band wagon effect. Here is my big mistake,
guess what? I eventually listened.
To get irritated by your album, I decided to listen from the rear, having
though that you’ll place a couple wacky tracks at the posterior, unknown to
me, I shot myself in the leg.
The first track I listened to on your album was the OUTRO, WA SERE. I read
another version of your bible. It gave another dimension to you. I listened
all through the track and I thought I should move on, it could be a fluke.
RORA with shank was a sold out. TatatataTYrone killed it with the drums.
This song hit me so hard. I felt your dynamism. The 38 seconds SKIT on
track 20 is actually better than a popular artiste’s  album with a lot of
babanas. I found myself listening to the beautiful accapella a couple times
before I moved on to Angeli which I quickly used the remote on cos it was
an anthem at a time and even though you are  my new found music love, I
will always despise the video.
AMEN with Jazzy got to me and I decided to listen to the album from1972.
Vector, I gotta hand this to you, album is a deep work of art, THE SECOND
COMING tags you as INTELLIGENT. You got the right people to handle the
Hooke like Robert. THINK IT!
I give it to you that you are a big project in progress. Beats by producers
TatataTYrone, Mr Smith, Da piano and a couple others coupled with hooks and
verses by Sound Sultan, Rock Steady. Emmasong, Jazzy, Muno makes the album
a balanced diet.
The cypher with Mode 9 is incredible. Although your album did not hit
commercial success similar to The Year of RnB album by Capital Femi and the
Karpenter’s Son album project, it’s an incredible work of art and I will be
proud to tell my grandchildren that I lived in the days of Mode9, Vector,
Messi and Ronaldo.
