Nigerian musicians are visionless & deceptively uncreative we need MANDATORS ( lyrical prophets like Femi kuti, Tu Face,

What direction is our industry going our celebrities are visionless & deceptively uncreative. We need MANDATORS (prophets) not booty shaking money making musicians like davido wizkid and the raggedy rat pack

The late Lady Peggy and Victor Essiet of the  reggae band MANDATORS circa 1987. Back then NIGERIAN artists such as The black president Fela kuti, Ras Kimono, the late Reverend Sonny Okosun, Tera Kota, Peterside Otong, Andy Shurman, Orits Wiliki, Amos Macroy Jegg, Black Rice and Majek Fashek of Jahstix  Femi Kuti, Tu Face Idibia, Seun Kuti, Charlie Boy, Oritse Femi, african China, Black face .

They were patriotic and they used their music to address social issues. Their lyrics reflected political and social issues ranging from concerns about poverty, unemployment, corruption, tribalism and bad leadership.       

They were not afraid to speak their minds even at risk of imprisonment, they impacted lives through their music by giving people hope.

In February 2017  Tuface was to lead nationwide demonstrations against the harsh economic crisis facing Nigerians but announced its cancellation hours before the scheduled march.

He cited “security concerns” after police warned him against going ahead with the demonstrations.       

The protests, led by civil society groups and activists went on nonetheless in Lagos, Abuja and Uyo.

But before 2face came forward to lead this protest, some other Nigerian celebrities have been protesting against the deterioration in the society caused by bad governance.

From Femi Kuti to Oritsefemi and Charly Boy, below are other Nigerian celebrities protesting against the government one way or the other.

1. Charly Boy

An unashamed activist, Charly Boy has been very vocal in his fight against corruption, oppression, division and the forces that seek to undermine democracy, and against the systems that keep us in chains.

The controversial star on Tuesday, November 15, 2016, even went as far as leading protesters on the platform of "Occupy Unlimited" to the National Assembly grounding activities in Abuja.

Charly Boy led other Nigerians to protest alleged corruption in the legislature.

Charly Boy, the national coordinator of the advocacy group said the protest was born out of the will of Nigerian youths who have shown the desire to "stand up against the injustice and oppression done against them by corrupt politicians."

2. Seun Kuti

Seun Kuti is also an activist helping to push for more effective oversight.

Following in the footsteps of his father's musical activism, he plays in the same band his father once led, Egypt 80, at The Shrine.

Recall that Seun's own grandmother died when, in 1978, she was thrown from her balcony for speaking out against the government by a large group of armed men sent by the ruling military to crack down on Fela's renegade Kalakuta Republic.

But that doesn't stop him as he was once reported saying 'he isn't frightened of government retribution'.

In one of his songs "Rise," Seun implores Africans to rise up against foreign exploitation, from oil companies in Nigeria to diamond traders in The Democratic Republic of the Congo.

3. African China

Although not as vocal as he used to be (thanks to a dwindling career), this list will not be complete without mentioning him.

Recall, this star started a new school of activism in music some ten years ago with hits like 'Mr President', a conscious song that rocked the four cardinal points of Nigeria back then.

4. Femi i Kuti

Taking after his vocal father Fela Kuti, Femi is another hot activist. The four-time Grammy award nominated Afrobeat musician is anti-government.
His new album highly rated worldwide

Recently, in a poem published on his website titled, "Make we remember", the musician called out African leaders.

"na because we no won know the good leaders of Africa

na because we no won know the good people wey dey here

na because we no won know we get yeye leaders

na because we no won know poverty plenty for here"

In his songs, his tweets, at the Afrika Shrine. All the time, Femi Kuti has always been an activist even engaging the government in a brawl on social media.

Femi continuously captures the will of the people in his music.

5. Oritsefemi

Again this list would not be complete without including the corporate miscreant himself, Oritsefemi.

Remember his hits, 'Flog Politicians', 'Boyz dey Binu', Mercies of the Lord', and recent jam 'Mr gomina', all these songs were against bad governance and economic instability.

It was a hit on the streets... Back to back!

6. Blackface
Where do we even start from. With songs like 'E dey pain me 'Hard life', Blackface was and is still capturing the wills of the people.

A former member of the defunct group,Plantashun Boiz, Blackface also resorts to talking about bad governance on social media.

Blackface constantly calls against the self-serving, disconnected leaders, plaguing Nigeria since her independence.

How To Obtain And Develop Dazzling Invention Ideas

Kelly Wilson

More so due to the fact that need to create as well as create normally originates from the depths of an individual's heart and soul. Nevertheless in addition to the innovative side, a good inventor needs a little equilibrium as well as the capability to be able to mindful scale as well as court whether their creation is actually something that will eventually confirm to be helpful or it is just a wishful thinking that will never ever fly.

Which brings us to the most crucial test for any type of invention. This is an examination that virtually every creation has to pass to hope to be anywhere near sensible. It centers on the question whether it will address any type of issue sufficiently sufficient to be seen to work. It is very common to come across inventors that have created some showy device that is able to complete some task but does not really address any kind of issue or enhance the quality of life for anyone by any means. Even if you were to push such an item right into the market, t would certainly prove really difficult to sell or to discover clients for it.

It is interesting to keep in mind right here that numerous inventions have actually wound up offering an entirely various purpose than what they were planned for. Viagra one of the most popular selling drugs of the modern age was checked as a medicinal solution to a totally different human condition. Something to do with managing high blood pressure in individuals. Some sharp experts noticed it's intriguing side effect an opened a whole new market and a valuable wonder drug for the manufacturer.

This is one reason that it is important that you approach the screening stage of your models with an open mind. Potential customers and consumers also regularly pull off shocks and wind up behaving completely in different ways from what you may have anticipated.

In other words great invention ideashave often emerged out there on the market, significantly turning upside down the designated objective and use

America should create its own separate military space force, President Donald Trump mentioned in an offhand remark Tuesday that would change the course of U.S. space policy. But don't expect Captain Kirk ordering phasers set on stun, Battlestar Galactica or ray guns blazing in orbit in the near future, space experts said.

And some said a military space force may make it harder to keep Earth's orbit a place of peace.

Egyptian student, 18, beaten to death by gang of 10 women in Nottingham

Detectives investigating the death of an 18-year-old student have said there is no information to suggest the attack was motivated by hate. Mariam Moustafa was left in a coma after a street assault at about 8pm on February 20 before she was pronounced dead almost a month later.
The teenager was allegedly punched several times during a confrontation with a group of women in Parliament Street, Nottingham, before she was later taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in the city. She was then transferred to Nottingham City Hospital but died on Wednesday. The teenager got on a bus at the scene near the Victoria Centre shopping precinct but was followed by the same group, who it is claimed were then threatening and abusive towards her.

Nottinghamshire Police have said they are aware of social media posts claiming the attack was motivated by hate and are ‘keeping an open mind’. A Home Office post-mortem examination is due to take place.
A 17-year-old girl arrested on suspicion of assault occasioning grievous bodily harm was bailed pending further investigation following the incident. A statement from the force said: ‘We would like to reassure the community that we are treating this incident very seriously and we are working hard to establish the circumstances. ‘We are also giving support to Mariam’s family at this very difficult time.’

Stephen Hawking dead at 76

Legendary scientist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76, a spokesman for the family said early Wednesday.

Hawking, whose work in the field of physics was celebrated around the globe, died at his home in Cambridge in the early hours of Wednesday morning, his family said.

His children released a statement following his death.

“We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today,” read the statement from children Lucy, Robert and Tim.

“He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years.”

Hawking probed the mysteries of the universe explaining the complex theories space, time and black holes.

He suffered from a rare neurological disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, which kept him bound to a wheelchair.

Despite his ailment, Hawking went on to become the Lucasian Professor at Cambridge in 1979 — the chair once held by Isaac Newton in 1663.

He sought to bring advanced scientific theories to a general audience with “A Brief History of Time,” the book which became an international best seller, making him one of science’s biggest celebrities since Albert Einstein.

Hawking was involved in a mythical quest to find a “unified theory.”

Such a theory would resolve the contradictions between Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, which describes the laws of gravity that govern the motion of large objects like planets, and the Theory of Quantum Mechanics, which deals with the world of subatomic particles.

Hawking said finding a “theory of everything” would allow mankind to “know the mind of God.”

He followed up “A Brief History of Time” in 2001 with the more accessible sequel “The Universe in a Nutshell,” updating readers on concepts like super gravity, naked singularities and the possibility of an 11-dimensional universe.

Hawking said belief in a God who intervenes in the universe “to make sure the good guys win or get rewarded in the next life” was wishful thinking.

“But one can’t help asking the question: Why does the universe exist?” he said in 1991. “I don’t know an operational way to give the question or the answer, if there is one, a meaning. But it bothers me.”

The combination of his best-selling book and his almost total disability — for a while he could use a few fingers, later he could only tighten the muscles on his face — made him one of science’s most recognizable faces.

He made cameo television appearances in “The Simpsons” and “Star Trek” and counted among his fans U2 guitarist The Edge, who attended a January 2002 celebration of Hawking’s 60th birthday.

His early life was chronicled in the 2014 film “The Theory of Everything,” with Eddie Redmayne winning the best actor Academy Award for his portrayal of the scientist. The film focused still more attention on Hawking’s remarkable achievements.

Some colleagues credited that celebrity with generating new enthusiasm for science.

His achievements, and his longevity, also helped prove to many that even the most severe disabilities need not stop patients from living.
