|Politics / Re: Ortom: How Can Miyetti Allah Take Responsibility For Killings And Are Free? by abbey621(m): 4:58am On Mar 13|
The real question should be: Why would a sitting Governor allow such terror groups in his state? If Buhari does not act, why don't you? You are a freaking Governor, grow a pair!
|Politics / Re: Muhammed Kazaure Gudaji: Why Women Shouldn’t Be Given Too Much Power by abbey621(m): 2:55pm On Mar 10|
They say politicians often are a reflection of the people who voted for them. Just go out to Jigawa and interview the populace, you would find that even the women are in support of what the politician said. What a shame!
|Career / Re: Best Banks To Work In Nigeria: List Of Highest Paying Banks - FinancialWatchNgr by abbey621(m): 2:50pm On Mar 10|
These opportunities are they legal or ethical? Nigerians we are so used to mago mago, imagine having to do back deals just to earn enough, SHAME!
|Career / Re: Best Banks To Work In Nigeria: List Of Highest Paying Banks - FinancialWatchNgr by abbey621(m): 3:45am On Mar 10|
It has nothing to do with cost of living, if the lowest of workers in advanced countries earn more than bankers in the giant of Africa, it is a damn shame! We should be comparing white collar jobs to white collar jobs but we all know about cost of living and other excuses, which is why I compared it to one of the lowest job in the USA.
|Career / Re: Best Banks To Work In Nigeria: List Of Highest Paying Banks - FinancialWatchNgr by abbey621(m): 12:32am On Mar 10|
A worker at McDonalds makes minimum $7.25 multiply that by 152 =$1,102 minus 15% tax =$900 multiply by 360 = 324,000 Naira. A burger flipper makes 324,000 Naira per month yet these useless banks are struggling to pay their bankers, why won't these bankers commit fraud when the pay is so low. 9ja which way?
|Celebrities / Re: Ali Baba And A Big Man Who Has 10 Police Escorts by abbey621(m): 8:48pm On Mar 07|
He is definitely richer than his father, even richer than 10 times his father. People like him only have wealth on social media, so they take the hate out on those who are truly wealthy.....welcome to Nigeria!
|Business / Re: Aliko Dangote Builds N1.2bn Business School In Bayero University Kano by abbey621(m): 9:07pm On Mar 04|
So you are telling me because we don't have enforceable anti competition laws in Nigeria, Dangote is a criminal, Dangote is not a good businessman? The problem with Nigerian critics at times is that we like mixing apples and oranges when trying to prove a point. Argue based on merit not rhetoric. You keep comparing Nigeria to advanced countries but you failed to mention those countries went through their own period of irregularities. Google Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan and so many, the difference between really wealthy people and average ones is that one is simply taking advantage of the resources available and maximizing the value while the other CRITICIZES!
|Properties / Re: Land Use Charge In Lagos State. What It Is And What Its Not Part 1 (march 2018) by abbey621(m): 8:11pm On Mar 04|
This is really enlightening, as a property owner, I'll be sure to increase the rent to accommodate the increase in taxes. It is how it is done in advanced countries......Tenants you can thank the government for making your life harder!
|Celebrities / Re: Nathaniel Bassey: 'Women Are The Ones Doing Favor To Men When They Marry' by abbey621(m): 8:00pm On Mar 04|
You are assuming without marriage a man won't have intimacy. You are assuming only married people have children. You are equally assuming that only men need children and that women have no hot desire for intimacy. Stop Assuming!
|Celebrities / Re: Patoranking's Harvard Speech, American Says It's Impossible, He Reacts by abbey621(m): 7:53pm On Mar 04|
Harvard is just like a regular school filled with various departments and functions. We have professors focusing on musical heritage, African components and modern implications. Anyone can be invited by the students or the professors to speak or participate. I have been privileged to speak not only at Harvard but Princeton as well through my job, it has nothing to do with the school you went to or your grades. Honestly people, it's not a big deal!

|Celebrities / Re: Nigerian Rappers Are Unknown In South Africa - Cassper Nyovest by abbey621(m): 6:21pm On Jan 18|
So are most rappers in the USA, so what's your point?
|Celebrities / Re: Nigerian Rappers Are Unknown In South Africa - Cassper Nyovest by abbey621(m): 4:33am On Jan 18|
This has nothing to do with patriotism but pure FACTS!
|Celebrities / Re: Nigerian Rappers Are Unknown In South Africa - Cassper Nyovest by abbey621(m): 9:16pm On Jan 17|
I don't think he was wrong, I just believe he generalized. If he had specified pure hip hop and relevancy like you clearly articulated instead of popularity, I wouldn't even argue...lol
|Celebrities / Re: Nigerian Rappers Are Unknown In South Africa - Cassper Nyovest by abbey621(m): 9:07pm On Jan 17|
Name 3 pure rap artiste with albums in the Billboard top 100 in terms of sales? Ok ok name 2? lol...dead and buried!
|Celebrities / Re: Nigerian Rappers Are Unknown In South Africa - Cassper Nyovest by abbey621(m): 8:51pm On Jan 17|
You're not being sentimental at all, not at all
|Celebrities / Re: Nigerian Rappers Are Unknown In South Africa - Cassper Nyovest by abbey621(m): 8:35pm On Jan 17|
I beg to differ again, jayz, busta rhymes and even Nas had to mix in modern pop in other to stay relevant, they started out big and true but after 2000 they had to adapt. Big pimpin is definitely a credit to pure rap but compare it to Numb or even his latest album, it' not hard to see that pure rap is DEAD and BURIED!
|Celebrities / Re: Nigerian Rappers Are Unknown In South Africa - Cassper Nyovest by abbey621(m): 8:29pm On Jan 17|
Tell me how many pure hip hop fans do you think remains in the entire world? How about Nigeria alone? When someone calls you out in terms of popularity saying, "you are unknown in their country and around the world", do you think he was truly referring to pure hip hop fans or in general? come on now, let's not be blatantly sentimental!
|Celebrities / Re: Nigerian Rappers Are Unknown In South Africa - Cassper Nyovest by abbey621(m): 7:45pm On Jan 17|
You said they've always gone together and I disagree! By pop I'm assuming we are talking about modern pop, the kind that blossomed in the 1990s and early 2000s. Imagine Rakim featuring Justin Timberlake or Nas in his prime featuring Justin Bieber, it's a sin man, SIN
Anyways real rap crumbled with the deaths of Pac and Big, Eminem tried to bring it back but the music industry is in love with all these softies. Niggaz chose to get paid than to stick with pure rap, I can't blame them much tho
|Celebrities / Re: Nigerian Rappers Are Unknown In South Africa - Cassper Nyovest by abbey621(m): 7:11pm On Jan 17|
Cass generalized and hence is guilty of that fallacy. You said the right thing, hip hop has many branches, to say Nigerian rappers are not aS popular or relevant because they chose another branch different from Cass is just plain WRONG! Pure hardcore rap is dying and even the greatest of rappers like Eminem, Jay Z and so on had to mix in a little bit of modern pop just to sell their albums. Cass reminds me of Mode 9, very good flow but in the end, you remain stuck in the little pure rap fan base that remains.

This topic is about who is more popular or relevant, it has nothing to do with who is better! Rakim was a better rapper than B.I.G and Nas but definitely not as popular. Forget about the dialect or the language of the rap/what the artiste are doing now; once a rapper always a rapper. Go and listen to voice of the streets, Ilefo Iluminati and tell me those were whack raps because it did not conform to traditional hip hop style.....bullsh*t!
|Celebrities / Re: Nigerian Rappers Are Unknown In South Africa - Cassper Nyovest by abbey621(m): 5:15pm On Jan 17|
Who is more popular around the world, Casper or Olamide? Before you answer, you might want to check Itunes sales, concert records and number of albums sold. The fact remains strictly hip hop will never sell in 9ja, our rappers had to redefine themselves in order to stay relevant!
|Celebrities / Re: Nigerian Rappers Are Unknown In South Africa - Cassper Nyovest by abbey621(m): 5:11pm On Jan 17|
Hip hop is hip hop, there's little difference between Afro and Classic, just a different tune but same concept. Nobody knows Casper beyond his little circle, no way in hell he has more fans across the world than Sarkodie or Olamide, this is the real fact. Go to London, come to Atlanta or Houston, you'll see what I'm talking about. Mode 9 tried the strictly hip hop route and what happened? He went up in flames! The Nigerian music industry is not ready for strictly hip hop, you must mix in the razzness and the Afro beats.

I've never seen a woman propose to a man and not to talk of doing so in public! My mind tells me she already knew he was married, she knew he was traveling soon and wanted a commitment by fire or by force......Aye le o
|Politics / Re: Photos Of Cart Pushers Arrested In Lagos As Government Begins Clampdown by abbey621(m): 8:26pm On Jan 15|
You make a ban, there should be time before it goes into effect. Why not give them 30 days to get their lives together? Don't you realize you just took away their means of livelihood? What is it about Nigerian governance that aims to make life even more difficult for the helpless? SHAME ON YOU AMBODE, SHAME ON YOU!!!

|Politics / Re: Ekiti Bars Fayemi, Other From Holding Public Offices In State by abbey621(m): 6:53pm On Jan 15|
Why would the people of Ekiti want Fayemi to return as Governor? We've seen so many times how these past leaders end up performing worse in their return to power. Ekiti being one of the most educated States in Nigeria, I find it hard to believe that there are no other qualified candidates for Governor, abi we never learn from Buhari and OBJ? I guess it's true what they say, intelligence greatly differs from being smart!

Yea Sanusi obviously trying to justify the killings by the herdsmen as mere retaliation. 800 is such a huge number, it would have been a little bit believable if he said 800 were killed over several months or years but 800 at once, ridiculous!
|Religion / Re: Man Posts Bottle Of Beer And Bible Verse To Justify His Drink (Photo) by abbey621(m): 8:29pm On Jan 14|
A bottle of beer per day helps to lower blood pressure, helps with anxiety and is a good relief for depression. While 3 or more bottles per day increases blood pressure and contributes to weight gain.
Moral: Anything done in excess is bad for you. E.g sex, alcohol, studying, driving, talking e.t.c

Why Funke? Why did the hacker choose Funke? Illegal hacking is a very serious crime and must be investigated properly. I wouldn't be surprised if the hacker is a Nigerian or was paid by a Nigerian
