|Music/Radio / What Is The Best Speaker Brand? by Maraokere: 11:27am On Jan 27|
What is the best speaker brand?
Sound equipment in Nigeria has grown to become a stable demand by buyers, owing to the rise of entertainment industries and churches in the country. There’re still major issues that keep rising in the minds of the buyers which is, “ What is the best speaker brand? Why is it the best?” Everyone goes into the business of selling sound equipment and musical instruments with the sole aim of making a profit at the expense of the buyers’ right of acquiring quality when they make a purchase of any sound equipment/ music instrument.
What brand comes in mind when you think of acquiring a loudspeaker, sound equipment, studio equipment, or a musical instrument? Do you just go to the market or search online for a random place to get your loudspeakers?
There are a handful of speaker brands from different countries with believe of superiority over another. All speakers offer the same basic purpose, but the core difference lies in production capacity, price, and durability. You could think of JBL, Peavey, Sound Prince as top speakers, but in disparities, one could pick a brand over the others and still feel the need to get more out it sound, which is owed to the brand’s production capacity.
Since 1932 Wharfedale pro U.K has been in the market, having gone through series of evolution to become one of Europe’s finest brand, and a mark of its footprint in the Nigeria and Africa market, Wharfedale pro brand is fast becoming a household name couple with its Bluetooth speakers, ceiling speakers, amplifiers series, mixers, microphones, line arrays, and ear pods, its uniqueness has given room to none in the competitive professional audio equipment market.
With custom made parts of all it’s Speakers (Which is a rare production method compared to other brands), Wharfedale is still super affordable which has made it gain prominence in the sound market all over the world
To know which is best, it is advisable to grasp a handful of knowledge on what speaker brand you decide to acquire, most sound engineers do not offer such service in the right manner as it could hinder their interest to personal gain, while most sellers with fake products would on purpose hide every information detailing a particular brand for their own gain too.
Before picking a brand, decide on what brand to pick, get the right source of information and store may be online or offline, make sure the seller is the right dealer, and it has to other extra services like aftersales service, installation, and warranty.

|Politics / Why Buhari Is The Best President - Alwan Hassan by Maraokere: 1:56pm On Dec 17, 2019|
An APC Member, Alwan Hassan, on President Muhammed Buhari's Birthday, has penned down why he is Nigeria's best President.
President Muhammed Buhari is celebrating his 77th birthday today, 17th December 2019
Facts Revealed: Why Buhari is Nigeria’s Best President (Economy, Investment, Agriculture and Social Investment)
By: Alwan Hassan
I cannot remember who once said that if you try to deny the truth, it does not change the facts. This is where we are in Nigeria today, with the significant achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
In the first part of this series, we examined infrastructure — highlighting why the greatness of the Buhari presidency is hinged on the sustainable impact of many of its policies, programs, and projects. In this part, we will be discussing how and why President Buhari’s economic, investment, agricultural, and social investment programs are unparalleled in the history of our nation.
First of all, to give us an insight into some of the notable achievements of Buhari’s administration, during his first term as a democratically-elected President, in 2017 alone, Nigeria’s agricultural exports grew by an outstanding 180.7% above its 2016 value.
Similarly, the Anchor Borrowers Programme (ABP) of the Central Bank of Nigeria, to encourage farming across Nigeria, has made available N82 billion in funding to 350,000 farmers of rice, wheat, maize, cotton, cassava, poultry, soybeans, and groundnut. So far, these farmers have helped to cultivate over 400,000 hectares of land — leading Nigeria to become more self-sufficient when it comes to the provision of basic food items.
It is important to also point out that the ABP has substantially raised the local production of rice in the country. As it currently stands, yields have doubled from 2-3 tonnes per hectare while Nigeria’s paddy production has doubled compared to its 2014 levels.
Between 2016 and 2018, eight new rice mills have come on-stream in Nigeria, a situation that has increased the country’s milled rice production by about 60 percent, from 2.5 million metric tonnes in 2015, to 4 million metric tonnes in 2017. There is also more than a billion dollars private sector investments in the production of rice, wheat, sugar, poultry and animal feed, since 2015 — this shows that many more Nigerians have returned to the farm and reaping significant rewards.
Additionally, there is also the Livelihood Improvement Family Enterprises (LIFE) programme which was initiated by the Buhari administration. This program, which is aimed at bringing life back to rural communities through the empowerment of youth, women and other vulnerable groups across the country, is geared towards promoting community-based on-farm and off-farm business activities as a model for job and wealth creation amongst unemployed youth and women in rural and suburban households. As the programme continues to grow, it is expected to establish over 150,000 cooperatives nationwide under commodity value chain groups.
The Buhari administration has made provision of agricultural credit for financing the production of rice, wheat, ginger, maize and soybeans in Kebbi, Niger, Kaduna, Kano, Enugu, Benue, Zamfara, Anambra and Kwara States.
Still, in a bid to aid the growth of the agricultural sector, fourteen moribund Fertilizer Blending Plants have been revitalized so far under the Presidential Fertilizer Initiative (PFI); with a total capacity of 2.3 million metric tonnes of NPK fertilizer.
The Presidential Fertilizer Initiative (which involves a partnership with the Government of Morocco, for the supply of phosphate), has thus far resulted in the revitalization of 14 blending plants across the country, with a total installed capacity over 2 million metric tonnes. The benefits include annual savings of US$200 million in foreign exchange, and N60 billion annually in budgetary provisions for fertilizer subsidies. The Scheme has also made it possible for farmers to purchase fertilizer at prices up to 30 percent cheaper than previously available.
Shifting to the economy, the Buhari administration has made concerted efforts in resuscitating the economy which was worst hit by the 2016 – 2017 recession. The inflation rate has fallen from about 17% to the current 11.61%. Nigeria’s External Reserves have risen from $29 billion in May 2015 to $42 billion in 2019.
Tax Revenue increased to N1.17 Trillion in Q1 2018, a 51% increase on the Q1 2017 figure, following the addition of six million new taxpayers to the tax base in an effort by the Buhari administration to diversify government revenues.
Solid Minerals’ contribution to the Federation Account outstandingly rose from N700 million in 2015 to N3.5 billion in 2017.
Moreover, US$1.7 billion has been saved by the Buhari government following negotiations to reduce the US$6.8 billion accumulated in NNPC/IOC Joint Venture Cash Call arrears to US$5.1 billion. While for Nigeria’s non-oil export earnings, for the first time in Nigeria’s history, it reached a record high of 577 billion naira between January and March 2018.
Similarly, under the Buhari administration, the Nigerian Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA) has seen fresh inflows of US$1.15 billion since 2016, and more than N300 billion in private sector investments in the rice value chain since 2015.
Nigeria has moved 24 places upwards in World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business rankings since 2018, earning a place on the list of top ten reforming economies in the world. Nigeria has similarly moved 22 points upwards in the Global Competitiveness index. Of course, the Buhari-led Federal Government has made investments in modular refineries, to ease the fuel situation in the country.
The Bank of Industry under this government has disbursed more than N160 billion in loans since 2016, just as the Nigerian Stock Market ended 2017 as one of the best- performing in the world, with returns over 40 percent.
An average of US$1 billion is recorded as weekly turnover through the new FX Window introduced by the CBN headed by Godwin Emefiele in April 2017. This attracted about US$25 billion in inflows in its first year, and a total turnover of $47.14 billion – indicating rising investor confidence in Nigeria.
President Buhari on November 4, 2019, assented to the Bill amending the Deep Offshore (and Inland Basin Production Sharing Contract) Act, which is projected to generate an est. $500 million in additional revenues for the Federal Government in 2020, and over $1 billion from 2021.
Above all else, the Buhari government has proven to be pro-masses with the incredible success recorded with its celebrated Social Investment Programme (SIP), which has been praised as the largest and most ambitious program in the country’s history, with a clear focus on the most vulnerable of our population.
Notable for its aim of investing in people, the four components of the Social Investment Programme, have yielded tremendous successes. For example, the Home Grown School Feeding Programme (HGSFP), has witnessed massive enrolment in primary schools in participating states as over nine million pupils are being fed at schools with one nutritious meal per day. The Buhari-led Federal Government has so far paid out over N66 billion to the 26 states currently enrolled in the scheme.
The Buhari administration also supports nearly 300,000 Nigerians with a monthly cash transfer of N5,000 to lift them out of absolute poverty. The Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) scheme provides targeted monthly Base Cash Transfer of N5,000 to the poorest and most vulnerable households in the country, to lift them out of absolute poverty. This scheme runs across 26 states with N12.8 billion so far disbursed to beneficiaries.
With over 500,000 Nigerian graduates, selected from 36 states, and being paid a monthly stipend of N30,000 to work in various sectors like education, health, agriculture, construction, etc, the N-Power scheme is undoubtedly the largest post-tertiary employment programme in Africa. This has also — to a large extent — reduced youth unemployment as many young people who take part in the program have been reported to go into self-employment immediately after, using the monies they saved up from the program.
Through the GEEP programme which consists of the FarmerMoni, MarketMoni and TraderMoni schemes, the Buhari government has disbursed N26.4 billion in interest-free loans, to over 1 million market women, traders, artisans and farmers across the 36 states of the federation and the FCT.
As the Buhari administration works to improve Nigeria’s business climate, in line with the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan, and the Nigerian Industrial Revolution Plan (NIRP), which is hinged on the growth and support of MSMEs; and accelerating further investments in Nigeria, the Federal Government has also launched.

It all started after Peter Okoye released his new single, "Like This Like That", the song got followers on twitter talking as they all claimed that Peter was singing rubbish.
Peter on one of the posts he made via his twitter account said ever since he started solo and became Mr P, he started aging backwards, and that is what he calls "Peace of mind" and minds his business too.
"To be frank bro..u are not minding ur business..u are obviously competing with ur brother..u need to go back to him,learn how to make quality/ good music...not all these yeyeye shits u v been releasing since u guys separated... #mrp #nepa"
Angry Peter replied; "Broke people thinking they have opinion ���� hustle make you no go dey advice dangote how to do business. �� chai!"
Meanwhile this last song "Like This Like That" got followers more pissed as they are attacking him to go back to his brother and learn how to make quality songs.

|Celebrities / Sowore: Banky W, Adesua, Busola Dakolo, Uti At The International Human Right Day by Maraokere: 2:27pm On Dec 11, 2019|
Nigerian singer and politician, Banky Wellington, his wife Adesua Etomi, Uti Nwachukwu, Busola Dakoro, Toyin Abraham, and some others gathered to celebrate the International Human Rights Day.
According to Banky W via his Instagram page said, they have been working with the European Union and the British Council on a campaign – “16 days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence and Sexual Assault”.
He protested against the blatant assault on free speech and the freedom of expression, adding that, “When it comes to Human Rights in Nigeria.. there is nothing to celebrate” and that “there’s just a whole lot of work to do”.
He wrote thus;
"It’s heartbreaking to take stock of where we are. Yesterday was International Human Rights Day. We’ve been working with the European Union and the British Council on a campaign – “16 days of Activism against Gender Based Violence and Sexual Assault”, and yesterday, as we brought the campaign to a close, we discussed the current state of Human Rights in Nigeria.
___ Sowore, despite being granted bail by the Court, was re-arrested less than 24 hours later in a brazen assault on the Judiciary & the rule of law in Nigeria. Abba Jalingo is still locked up for criticising a Governor. Sahara reporters have had their Nigerian bank accounts frozen with no explanation, and assets seized.
As far as Gender Equality goes… the Gender Equality bill did not make it past a 2nd reading before being shut down in the National Assembly. And yet the social media bill is on its way to a 3rd. Our constitution basically says that women are 2nd class citizens, yet that is not deemed a serious enough issue… instead, people like Elisha Abbo (the senator that physically assaulted a woman for daring to ask him to calm down) is one of the “leaders” openly pushing for the social media bill to pass, so that they can once and for all prevent ALL of us from speaking up against bad governance.
There is a very obvious, blatant assault on free speech and the freedom of expression going on right before our eyes. There is an emergency when it comes to the treatment of women and children.. when Senators are allowed to marry teenagers and physically assault women… when 1 in 4 girls in Nigeria are victims of sexual assault – the youngest patient of the Mirabelle Center is a 3 month old girl, the oldest is an 80 something year old Grandma.
When it comes to Human Rights in Nigeria.. there is nothing to celebrate, there’s just a whole lot of work to do. We must all do something. Maybe u can call/email your Senators and Reps? Maybe we can all can post online and get the attention of International News Media so that they can join us in pressuring our Government? Maybe U can volunteer/donate to a Sexual Assault Referral Center? Just do something. Anything".
