Basketmouth New Car 2Basketmouth New Car 5

You just need to know how to fit in and play your cards well and cash will be rolling in for you with ease. I hear one of Nigeria’s consistent comedian, Basketmouth, real names Bright Okpocha, just took delivery of the 2013 exclusive Opel Insignia car. That he got the car is not a big deal, but how he did it.

The 2013 Opel Insignia was built from scratch to Basketmouth’s specification….
Giving details about the car he said: “She’s the first and only one in Africa, I built her from the scratch, as in…I cooked her like soup. She’s my Christmas gift, she arrived 2 months late, but its still mine anyway, her name is snow white. The car is actually not sold at any showroom in the world…you can only order it.”

Letter From Denrele to Goldie: My super star friend

Goldie-mystreetzmag-Cover-8
The following soul -lifting and touching writeup came from goldie’s best friend amidst of all the negative stories flooding the net about her death…due enjoy
I Will Move Mountains To Continue Your Legacy
–– Says Goldie’s Best Friend, Denrele

My super star friend sways away and I stand watching till she fades on the horizon and someone at my side says “she’s gone”…Gone where?

Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as gorgeous now as when last I saw her.

Her slightly disappearing figure and total loss from my sight is in me, not in her.

And just at that moment, when someone at my side says she’s gone, there are others who are watching her coming over their horizon and other voices take up a glad shout – There she comes! That is what dying id – An horizon and just the limit of our sight.

My lifeline, my lexicon, therapist and support system…we have known lots of pleasure, at times endured ppai, we have lived in the sunshine and walked in the rain. I had acute malaria (was shaking terribly) but performed “skibobo” with you at the Industry Night and Loud&Proud show, I sprained my ankle but still shot your three videos in a row in S/A.

I left my family house and moved in with you and your family right after all the Big Brother Africa madness, I did all the damage control….

I fought every organizer simply cos I wanted you on the bill with me and split my show earnings with you, I dragged you to the American Embassy even if it meant I had to get up at 4am. I endured negative criticism because shallow minds couldn’t comprehend your brand essence – I started wearing block heels (you got me the most fabulous pair of Jeffrey Campbells) and I damned the consequences. I recorded the reality show “Tru Friendship” with you because you went on and on about it and I wanted to please you.

I have been your fierce-alter ego in all your videos, I have fought your fights, endured countless eccentric P.As with you…I can go on and on and this is how you leave me? You chose an eternal sleep over a fabulous life with me? Lest I forget, I ate the entire box of birthday chocolates Bola sent to you!

Phew, I can’t type anymore, I’m playing “Good To Me” (always disturbed you to release that song) and my notepad is a misty mass of my never ending tears. So sad when people who give you the best memories, become a memory!

The Goldie I knew, despite your success and worldwide recognition, still wondered, “Am I good enough?” “Am I pretty enough?” “Will they like me?” It was this burden that made you great…And that made you stumble in the end.

Goldie if you can hear me now, you weren’t just good enough – You were abso-frigging-lutely GREAT! You sang the whole damn song without a band – you made the picture of a showbiz star look so perfect!

Your parting has left a void, but I will fit it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss and oh yes, these things I too will miss. Even though we are separated and for a time apart, I am not alone cos you’re forever in my heart. I will move mountains to continue your legacy, I will crash ceilings to spread your good works, I will break barriers to sell your “market” but above all, I will cherish the awesome times we spent together…You will forever be my source of infinity!

We wore the same shoe size and had the same body proportions. You made me start strutting lashes and recall I wore that black dress of yours you never got to wear? No masterpiece can ever match your face! To everyone reading this piece, let my dear friend rest in peace! Speak no evil about her, she was too good to be true!

I can hear you say to me…Mbirikoko, do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep, Do not stand at my grave and cry…I am not there, I did not die!

Is Temitope Osoba a stripper….Exclusive Interview

ACTRESS Temitope Osoba
Beautiful, sexy and ever-smiling, Temitope Osoba dazzled the movie world as a stripper in the late Bisi Komolafe’s movie titled “Igboro Ti Daru” and certainly got some tongues wagging about her. In this chat with Showtime, she opens up on sex, relationship and issues in the movie industry.

Who is Temitope Osoba?

Temitope Osoba is a simple girl, an actress by profession. I was born and bred in Lagos. I graduated from Olabisi Onabanjo University with a BSc. degree in Business Education. I have been acting since 2005 and to date I have done, well, if I am not exaggerating, over 20 films and I am still counting.

Yes, “Igboro Ti Daru”, you played the role of a stripper. Wasn’t that a bit on the raw side?
Common, it wasn’t raw. We were supposed to be strippers and we didn’t even strip. I played the part of the girl who was dating the Senator. The film was produced by Late Bisi Komolafe and I was her friend in the movie. As far as I am concern that movie wasn’t raw I was comfortable with the script.

Okay, maybe you didn’t actually strip but there was enough striptease in the package?
Well, I was only doing my job. We didn’t reveal vital parts of our body. Maybe we wore some sexy dresses, that was all. Hey! That isn’t raw, it just playing the part.

But there were enough flashes of the cleavage, the laps and even your backsides weren’t so covered, so to say?I don’t know what you are talking about. Every day we see ladies wearing dresses that reveal their cleavage and shorts that reveal their laps. You wouldn’t call them strippers, would you? About the backsides, you are on your own because I don’t see where we revealed anything of sort.

See, the film wasn’t about showcasing the life of strippers, the message in it is to teach girls not to live wayward lives and that’s what we did in the film. You would see all the girls who lived waywardly ended up bad.

What’s your idea of sex generally. Some believe it should be for married couple alone?
I think sex is meant to be enjoyed by two people who have serious feeling for each other. Sex is good, it is there for two lovers to enjoy themselves and share the secrets of their hearts.

On whether one should engage in premarital sex or not, I would say yes. Premarital sex is okay as long as it is a safe sex. Our society allows it. These days, you can hardly keep a relationship going without sex

–– Do you agree with her? Is it true that you can’t keep a relationship without sex?

See How Money Turned Wizkid & Banky Against Each Other

Banky W and Wizkid 1

The split between Banky W and Wizkid, inside sources say, resulted from an alleged high difference in what Banky W gets from revenues made by the young star, Wizkid.

The ‘injustice’, according to what Olufamous.com gathered, has been bothering Wizkid until he summoned the courage to ask for an improved contract from Banky W, which hit him (Banky) by surprise.

“You know Wizkid is the backbone of EME music label. The boy (Wizkid) feels that Banky W has been milking too much from him with the large chunk of what Banky W takes from what the boy makes.

“Wizkid has asked for an improved contract because the present one allocates much of Wizkid’s earnings to Banky W. You know when you are coming up, you sign any kind of deal because you just want to climb stardom.

“That is the situation the boy finds himself but Banky felt hurt that Wizkid could ask for an improved offer after what he (Banky W) has done for him.

“This was the beginning of the problem between them. The boy even threatened to leave the label sometimes ago but Banky W felt it was a joke. He took it with a pinch of salt. Now, he is at a crossroad and confused on what to do,” a source told Aproko 247.

Wizkid’s mum waded into the matter but Wizkid reportedly ignored his mum advice and stood his ground on leaving the label. “Wizkid’s mum has also tried to talk sense to her son but it seems the guy (Wizkid) is bent on moving on with his life.”

Goldie gone too soon…

Goldie-mystreetzmag-Cover-8

Shortly after arriving from Los Angeles, Goldie complained of a headache then slumped and was rushed to Reddington Hospital in Victoria Island where she was pronounced dead on arrival. She was 30 years old.

Born Susan Oluwabimpe Harvey on 22, October 1982, the young Susan was raised in a strongly Christian household by a pastor father and choir mistress mother. Her activities revolved around the church where she started singing in the junior choir and taught in the Sunday school classes. She was enrolled at Green Springs Montessori Primary School and completed her secondary education at St John’s College Palm Groove, Lagos. She moved on to the University of Sunderland where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Management. It was during her sojourn in the UK that friends who noticed her uneven skin tone and hair colour gifted her with the name she would eventually find fame with.

Goldie.

One name only. She joined an impressive club of female superstars, one whose members include Madonna and Cher who go by just one mysterious first name and just like these divas, she arrived in a combustible cloud of colour, costumes and controversy.

But super stardom did not come immediately. Joining an all-girl group in the UK, she started writing songs and performing with the group without much success. She returned home with a bag of determination and a burning desire to succeed and in 2006 put out her debut CD, ‘Spin me’ which sported four tracks; ‘Komole’, ‘Nothing Has Changed’, ‘Shift’ and ‘Spin Me.’ While the disc was mostly ignored by the general public, it got her notices in important music business circles and before long she had hooked up with Kennis music and was hard at work on her second album.

She had an album to her credit but it was one single, ‘You know it’ that made her a pop star. The industry had never heard anything like it nor seen anything like it’s accompanying video- at least not in recent times. She was a relentlessly confident woman, singing menacingly about taking her rival’s man in a video that was slightly ahead of it’s time. With her colourful plumage and brash lyrics, Goldie’s hippy image was loud and carried into places her vocal limitations could not.

Goldie understood that remaining a star was even more difficult than becoming one and she pushed herself hard to maintain that X-factor that would for the duration of her brief career, keep her on the right side of relevant. She made bold fashion choices- some worked and some didn’t and kept us glued to her music videos and risqué live performances. It was only a matter of time before the awards started rolling in. A third album followed in early 2012 as well as an appearance in the celebrity season of Africa’s biggest reality television show, Big Brother Africa.

Big Brother Star game made her a continental favourite as it introduced her to the African audience who soon fell in love with her even as she introduced her level-headed, domestic nature. She played den mother to the gang, tirelessly cooking and cleaning and for once, many were privileged to see beyond all the artifice and glamour of her pop star life. Although many were put out by her on-again, off-again relationship with the Kenyan rapper Prezzo, Goldie remained adamant about living her life on her own terms. She answered to no one and did exactly what she felt like, when she felt like.

Following her Big Brother stint where she had garnered even more fans, she took a breather and then perhaps armed with a premonition of how things would turn out, launched herself full throttle into her career. There was a new single, ‘Skibobo’ with an eye on conquering the continent, an upcoming album and a new reality show with her best friend, the MTV veejay Denrele. According to her label boss Kenny Ogungbe, her Grammy trip was supposed to open up new vistas and exciting possibilities for her career and she was all set to move unto the next big thing.

Regrettably, none of this will come to pass.

We can only take some form of consolation in the life she lived; brief but eventful, the career she had, joy she brought to our lives through her music and videos, even as we look forward to post-humous releases from her label.

Rest in peace sister.
