    I like Tiwa Savage. She is the leading female artist in Nigeria’s music business because she doesn’t take herself seriously and is doing what other females have been afraid and are still afraid to do–>Express themselves! What Tiwa is doing is nothing new but is a breath of fresh air in the Nigerian music industry where the female artist’s point of view is usually restricted to being sweet, boring, run-of-the-mill, Afrocentric, with no personality. There are other females I like for being daring (I don’t like their music)- Mo’Cheddah, Goldie, Muna etc.

      there’s nothing wrong with being afrocentric! those afrocentric artistes have more personality and talent than tiwa can ever possess in this lifetime and the next.

    Why does M.I. not take Jesse along when he goes shopping for clothes?
    M.I.’s dressing is not spectacular but at least.

    I can’t get enough of Tiwa. My non African friends like her songs because even though they don’t understand yoruba they know she’s singing about love. Yoruba language is so sweet to the ears. Anyway, she looks beautiful as always. You go, girl.

    I hope Basket gives AY tutorials on how it is done.

    I hope the non-Nigerian comedians were able to thrill the guests sha. Culture differences may make it difficult to flow. I once watched Night of a Thousand Laughs -Kenya. thank God some Naija comedians were there cos the other guys were just meh to me, yet all their country people were laughing.
