|Nairaland / General / Securities And Exchange Commission Suspend Oando Annual General Meeting by supernova094(m): 10:50am On Jun 12, 2019|
The Nigerian Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has suspended the 42nd Annual General Meeting of Oando PLC which was scheduled to take place today the 11th of June 2019.
The Pragmatic Shareholders Association of Nigeria have voiced their displeasure towards the SEC as a result of the suspension.
Their outcry contained in a Press Release document dated the 11th of June 2019 condemned the actions of the SEC as unacceptable, especially owing to the fact that Oando PLC had already planned and paid for the event as far back as May.
“We think it is unacceptable that the SEC chose to make their announcement on the eve of the event. We have members who had come from different parts of the world and it is disheartening to think the SEC did not consider the esteemed Shareholders before deciding to notify the General Public on the suspension of the Annual General Meeting.”
Lastly, the Association called on all other bodies Local, State and Federal to intervene in directing the SEC to act in a manner that is legal, moral and ethical.

|Music/Radio / The Hausa Music Industry. by supernova094(m): 12:54pm On Feb 15, 2019|
Hausa music from top hausa musicians are certainly underrated in the music industry today. Yes i know we have the likes of Wizkid and Burnaboy dominating our airwaves but we Nigerians miss the vibe of Hausa songs.
The most popular Hausa musicians of all time include Ice Prince and Classiq while the rest lie in almost oblivion...that is as far as the west is concerned anyway.
Go over to the northern sides and you'd be shocked the degree to which these other more relatively unknown acts are worshiped like small gods by their fans.
I was searching google the other day when i bumped into one of them called DJ AB. I was shocked to learn that this guy had tens of thousands of monthly searches to his name. I can be you if i ask 50 random Lagosians "Who is DJ AB" they will most likely have no damn clue who i'm talking about.
