BN Tidbits: Ini Edo’s Baby Plans | Stella Damasus’ New Shows | Omotola’s Hot New Tracks | Return of Styl Plus + More



Newlywed Nollywood superstar Ini Edo-Ehiagwina has revealed her baby plans. Now that Ini is married to her sweetheart, Phillip she has stated that she hopes to start a family soon. According to Ini, she cant wait to be a mother, when asked about any gender preferences, Ini stated that she will be happy with a healthy boy or girl.


2009 is a going to be a very exciting year from multitalened Nollywood star/Musician/MC, Stella Damasus-Aboderin. Stella has launched her new producton company, SDA. Stella has promised that we can expect high quality programming and content from SDA including Sistaz (a female-centric talk show), Fresh  Start, On The Verge, Thru My Eyes, Gig Life and Real People.


Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde is known as one of the queens of Nollywood but many know that she has another side to her. Omotola is a huge music buff and this has led her to foray into the world of music. Her first album, Gba was a learning curve but now Omotola is set to release a brand new album in 2009. She has been hard at work in the studio with producer Paul Play and Del B. We cant wait to listen to the album!


When musical trio Styl-Plus entered the music scene a couple of years ago, they were like a breath of fresh air. They came with a new sound and a clean image, fans in return welcomed them with open arms and they enjoyed a period of unprecedented success. Its now commonplace for 2Face, Faze, D’Banj, 9ice and co to embark on international tours but Styl Plus were the first new-school nigerian artistes to start the trend. Their first 2 albums were mega hits but their last album which was released last year barely created a ripple in the music scene. Well, Zeal, Shifi and Tunde have decided to restrategize, they are currently working on a new album and are reportedly moving to Lagos from their Abuja base.


Big congrats to ‘Jowobiko’ & ‘Jebele’ crooner, Kween. She recently gave birth to a son. She and her fiance Dotun have named the baby, Tyrone. Kween who despite being pregnant, spent most of 2008 hard at work in the studio, will be back on the scene later in the year with a new album.


Nollywood ladies man, Mike Ezuruonye reportedly enrolled in the New York Film Academy. Mike is looking to develop his skills both in front and behind the camera. He is following the footsteps of Nigerian NYFA alums, Kemi Adetiba, Tola Odunsi and Stephanie Okereke.

    LOL!!!! I was about to ask Tyrone…..all those names that are becoming chaff abroad (Bill Cosby lasked Akata out over inventing funky ‘ght’ names- Shiquala and Shaniqua, Tinaqua… now Nigerians are inheriting the bits) I’ll name my kid something funky sha hopefully I won’t be a celeb for Bella to put it up.

    Is it only celeb babies names that warrant debate? Hollywood now Nollywood…I’m beginning to suspect that its on purpose not coincidence.

    January 10, 2009 at 5:58 am

    And its ghetto Akata names oh! (maybe not in this case) do Akata give their children ‘Atutupoyoyo’?

    After Paris Hilton did an album, people started believing in vocal coaches even more…I hope is consulting the services of one. I attemped listening to her album and stopped after 30secs, I skipped to her ‘naija lo wa’ song and that was it.

    I love Omotola as an actress but…..

    Phillip already has a son he doesn’t take care of, so it will be nice for Phillip to take care of the responsibility he already has-instead of acting as if he doesn’t. Or has he forgotten about his son because he married Ini Edo???

    What are you looking forward to listening to? The tired rhymes and lyrics of a music charlatan! If you to say you true true like Omotola, you go tell am say no to everybody s’pose sing! STOP DECEIVING HER; let her know the truth that she croaks awfully!!! But she remains undoubtedly a good actress and excellent interpreter of roles.

    If he needs someone to tell him to take care of his kid, then he is an ass hole. Don’t blame Ini I don’t think she was the cause of him leaving his first wife. He has moved on the ex wife needs to do the same. Life goes on.
