Forbes World’s Highest Paid Musicians For 2012

Forbes has released its list of highest-paid musicians and unsurprisingly, the top spot this year is not held by a popstar or rock band, but a doctor – of beats. Aftermath Records CEO, rapper and beat maker, Dr. Dre earned a cool $110 million between May 2011 and May 2012 to earn that enviable position. However, most of that paycheck had nothing to do with the production of music, though as he earned the vast majority of it from his über-trendy headphone line, Beats by Dre.
Others leading the pack: Roger Waters (a founding member of Pink Floyd) with $88 million, Elton John with $80 million, U2 with $78 million and Take That with $69 million. Now that’s a top 5 with just one American and none of them’s currently in the top 10 of the Billboard singles chart.
Bonjovi comes in at 6th with $60 million. Britney Spears, the highest-earning woman, comes in at No. 7 with $58 million. Taylor Swift tied Paul McCartney for the eighth slot. Both raked in $57 million over the course of the year.
Other hotshots: Justin Bieber rounds out the top 10 with $55 million, Rihanna lands at No. 12 ($53 million) and is followed by Lady Gaga ($52 million), Katy Perry and Diddy tied for 15th ($45 million) and Beyonce out-earned husband Jay-Z ($40 million and $38 million). Adele and Kanye West hold the joint spot at No. 22 with $35 million.

Girl, 13, Defends Lover Over Rape Allegation

A 22-year old man, Peter Victor has been arrested by the police and charged before a magistrate’s in Lagos, southwest Nigeria, for allegedly raping a 13-year old girl (name withheld)
He is now facing a charge of rape before the Magistrate, Mrs M B Folami.
The victim stunned the police and the court when she said she was not raped by Victor as claimed by the police.
She said she allowed Victor to sleep with her thrice because she loved him and because he had assisting her family.
She revealed that Victor has been buying gifts for her and members of her family, adding that she usually takes the gifts home to show her parents who sometimes share from them.
She also revealed that when Victor was arrested and she was brought to the station, she told the police that she was not raped, but she was asked to shut up because she was a minor.
3m360 gathered that the girl’s father was aware of the relationship between Victor and her daughter when she returned late in their last outing one day  and during questioning, the girl told her father  that she went out with the man.
On further inquiry, she was said to have admitted to her father that Victor had been sleeping with her.
The angry father was said to have gone to the police to report that Victor raped his daughter. Victor was,  therefore, arrested and charged to court on a one-count charge of having unlawful canal knowledge of  the girl.
The Cross River State-born   admitted having sex with the girl, but  that he did not rape her as claimed by the police.
He also told the court that she is her girlfriend and that he has being assisting her and her family.
The police insisted that it was a case of rape and charged him under section 137 of the Criminal Code Law of Lagos State of Nigeria. He pleaded not guilty.
He was denied bail and  ordered remanded in  Kirikiri prison.

Delta Tourism Commissioner, Mofe Damijo And Acting Tourism GM Accused Of Embezzling N50 Million

Delta State Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Richard Mofe Damijo (popularly called RMD) and the acting General Manager of the state’s Tourism Board, Philo Nkem Ajufo, have embezzled N50 million belonging to the ministry.
Several sources in Delta State, including two employees of the Culture Ministry, told our reporter that a former commissioner in the Ministry had requested N50 million to organize the “Delta State Expo 2007.” However, the state government was unable to release the funds that particular year to sponsor the yearly event.
By some bizarre twist, the funds were finally released to the ministry’s tourism account in May, 2012. “As soon as the money arrived, the commissioner said that the ministry could no longer hold the event since six years had elapsed,” said a source within the ministry. “The Honorable Commissioners also argued that Deltans would have forgotten about the event – and therefore the money should not be used for the purpose it was released.”
However, our reporter obtained documents from the Delta State Ministry of Finance stipulating that the N50 million must be spent on the event for which the Culture Ministry applied for it. The warrant was signed by one P.O. Evuojapha on behalf of the Commissioner of Finance. The warrant indicated that N35 million of the funds was to go to the Tourism Board.
Our sources disclosed that Mr. Damijo, a former popular Nollywood actor turned politician, connived to issue a check of N35 million in the name of Ms. Ajufo who reportedly deposited the sum into her First Bank private account number 3006131619. “Mrs. Ajufo and RMD then shared the money,” one of our sources asserted.
Another government source told SaharaReporters, “It is very obvious that the manner the check was issued in the name of the board GM instead of in the name of the board was fraudulent. It portrays an element of fraud.”
Several of our sources depicted Ms. Ajufo as somebody versed in the art of warming up to top politicians in the state and getting her way.
Two sources said Ms. Ajufo used her share of the looted funds to start off a twin duplex located at No.6 Dunkwu Crescent in Asaba, the state capital. The  is behind Junior Staff quarters and near a Redeemed Christian Church. One source said Ms. Ajufo had started the project in June, 2012.
A source close to Ms. Ajufo told SaharaReporters that the head of the tourism board had denied receiving any of the embezzled funds. “She  Mr. Mofe Damijo of carting away the whole sum of N50 million even when her account was used to commit the fraud,” said the source.
Meanwhile, Ms. Ajufo’s staff have reportedly lost all patience with her manner of running the board. “The acting GM is very, very corrupt,” said a staffer. “As we talk, apart from her official car, the Tourism Board cannot boast of a single functional car. All the board’s cars are grounded. And in this era of technology, there is no single working computer apart from one in her office – which she doesn’t use. Her office is entitled to N1 million subventions every month, but as soon as the money comes the commissioner and the GM share most of it. The left over is never properly used by the GM.”
A source who was on the GM’s entourage to the Akwaba Festival in Lagos last October told SaharaReporters that Ms. Ajufo embezzled some funds meant to secure an exhibition stand at the festival. “The GM collected N500, 000 from the government to procure an exhibition stand for Delta State at the Akwaba Festival held in Lagos in October, 2012. Instead, she pocked the sum of N300, 000 and went for an ordinary table stand which cost her N200, 000 only. She is the most corrupt of all the GMs we have ever worked with in that board. She runs fraudulent deals with the commissioner and they have both amassed wealth for themselves to the detriment of the people of Delta State.”
When a reporter sent a text to Ms. Ajufo, the embattled GM wrote back, “Please, speak with the Honorable Commissioner for Culture and Tourism. Thank you.”
Contacted by phone, Mr. Damijo denied all the , insisting that no such money was released to his ministry at any time. “That matter is a dead matter,” he said. “There was no N50 million released to my ministry.” I run the Ministry with people, the Permanent Secretary and other directors.”

Kim Kardashian Refuses to Give Kris Humphries Her Engagement Ring Back

 is refusing to return the gigantic  that Kris Humphries gave her when he popped the question.
The pair were  for just 72 days and are yet to legally end their union.
Sources say Kris wants the band — which cost him $750k, but is said to retail for around $2 million — returned.
But Kim — who’s now  Kanye West — is having none of it.
“Kris is adamant that he wants the ring back,” said the insider.
“And it’s becoming a real sticking point  his and Kim’s attorneys. She has made it plain that she has no intention of returning it though and feels she is within her legal right to refuse as she went through with the wedding.
“However, Kris contends that the  was a total sham and that Kim only wed him for publicity so therefore she has no right to keep such an expensive gift.
“Kris doesn’t understand why Kim would even want to keep the ring anyway. It obviously has no sentimental value as she has publicly  their wedding as ‘a huge mistake’ and she certainly doesn’t need the money, so why doesn’t she just return it to him?
“Kris is more than willing, and eager, to end this chapter of his .
“But he wants it done on his terms. He thinks Kim tricked him into marrying and he wants his day in court to prove that. There’s no ulterior motive, he just wants the record set straight and what he perceives as a massive wrongdoing against him put right.”

50 Cent Says Floyd Mayweather Owes Him $2 Million

50 Cent Says Floyd Mayweather Owes Him $2 Million
50 Cent says that his beef with Floyd Mayweather began over a $2 million debt.
While 50 Cent is hardly a stranger to beef, perhaps his most surprising feud in recent history involves his former friend and TMT Promotions partner Floyd Mayweather. Now, in a recent interview with Power 106 FM, Fif reveals the origins of his beef with the famed boxer.
According to Fif, the feud began over a $2 million debt Mayweather owes to Fiddy for starting their TMT Promotions company prior to Mayweather's recent prison sentence. Fif explained that after his release from jail, Mayweather neglected his debt to the rapper and instead spent his fortune on jewelry and cars. Eventually, tensions boiled over and Mayweather lashed out at the rapper on Twitter at the behest of his entourage.
"[Mayweather] changed his mind…as he was actually going in to jail, he asked me to help him with Mayweather Promotions," Fif recalled. "As he actually got in and I took a look, I realized there is no Mayweather Promotions: there's no LLC, there's no seals, there's no 'incorporated'…technically, Floyd is a Golden Boy fighter [for Oscar De La Hoya's promotion firm]. He fights on every Golden Boy card, they do all the footwork…so when he says, 'Help me with Mayweather Promotions,' and it's not there, I go, 'Okay, I know what he means: he wants me to put it together for him.' So I do TMT Promotions, I get it all the way together…he comes home, and there's the, 'Let's get Floyd back in pocket' campaign that goes on, where there's $300,000 chains being bought and buying him the new Lambourghini…and I'm sitting there going, 'When are you going to give me the money?'…It's about [$2 million owed] at that point. When he finally does bring up the actual situation, he acted like he didn't know anything. Like, 'I didn't tell y'all to do that.'"
He added, "That's not Floyd [on Twitter or Instagram dissing me]; Floyd don't Tweet…he's got somebody next to him. See, everybody around him is co-dependent, so they gonna roll with what he says regardless…they'll tell him what to say. As soon as he gets confused, he's gonna go, 'Okay, okay, um, just call out [50 Cent].'"

Tonto Dike – “If I keep waiting for an Igbo man, I will just end up like Genevieve Nnaji who is eternally single”

This piece was culled from an interview Tonto Dike had recently with a reporter from Punch. Excerpt from the interview:
Interviewer: We just learnt that you will be getting married soon to your new boyfriend who happens to come from Benin, Edo state. Why are so many Nollywood female starts getting snapped up by Benin or men from Edo state?
Tonto Dike: First of all, it is nobody’s business where my fiance is from. That out of the way, yes Benin men are great and very understanding. They are not sitting and judging you unlike an Igbo man that will want to be poke-nosing in everything you do. You make your money and the Edo man is not interested in your personal affairs . “If I keep waiting for an Igbo man, I will just end up like Genevieve Nnaji who is eternally single.”
Tonto dike Debunked the statement above…
In a reaction to the alleged interview, which has spread like harmmatan fire, Tonto reacted this way, “I have never and will never say anything against Genevieve. I will not even interfere in her personal issues. I did not grant such interview.”
Her publicist also denied any such statement from Tonto dike. The publicist said, “after her interview with you (NFC) last year December, Tonto dike has only granted an interview with a soft-sell magazine, which was done about three months ago.
So, I don’t know where that purported interview came from or when such was granted.”

Man kills wife for rejecting sex demand

 man, Musa Yusuf, who allegedly killed his wife for refusing to submit to his sexual demand, has been remanded at the Federal Prison, Ilorin.
An Ilorin Magistrates’ Court on Thursday remanded the accused for allegedly committing the offence on Nov. 17 on a farm.
The accused was arraigned on a one count charge of culpable homicide, punishable under Section 221 of the Penal Code.
The brother of the deceased, Sanni Suleiman, told the court that the woman took food to her husband on the farm but did not return home.
Suleiman said when a search party was organised, her corpse was found on her husband’s farm with mark of violence on her face. The body, he said, was concealed under weeds.
The prosecutor Zachaeus Funsho, told the court that the accused “callously clubbed his wife to death and flew into thin air” before he was arrested by the police.
He objected to bail for the accused because the alleged offence “is not ordinarily bailable”.
He urged the court to remand the accused in prison custody, pending the outcome of investigation.
In her ruling, Magistrate Mariam Ahmed ordered the accused remanded in Federal Prison, Ilorin, and adjourned the case to 13 December for further mention.

Man Jailed 7 Years For Having Sex With Daughter

An Oredo Magistrate Court in Benin yesterday sentenced a 47-year-old man, Godwin Allu, to seven years imprisonment with hard labour for having sex with his daughter.
The accused who pleaded guilty to the one-count charge of having unlawful carnal knowledge of his 12-year-old daughter, Blessing, was said to have committed an offense punishable under Section 218 of the Criminal Code Cap. 48 Vol. II of the defunct Bendel State of Nigeria, 1976 as applicable in Edo State.
Prosecuting counsel, Miss. Loretta Asaka, told the court that on November 20, 2012, one Mrs. Verlaine Enemaku reported the case at the charge room of the Central Juvenile Welfare Centre of the Nigeria Police in Benin, after being told by the Headmistress of Obaseki Primary School, Benin, that blood stains were discovered on the victim’s uniform.
The complainant said upon interrogation, the victim told the head mistress that her father had sex with her three times on different occasions. It was gathered that the victim, who was admitted and treated at the Benin Central Hospital was later discharged and taken to an orphanage.
Delivering judgment in the case, Chief Magistrate Peter Asemota, who expressed gladness that the accused voluntarily pleaded guilty to the crime, pronounced him guilty as charged.
Asemota, who observed that cases of sexual offenses were on the increase in her jurisdiction, said it was necessary for the court to join other stakeholders in taking a serious stand against the vice.
“For this reason, the convict must be put out of circulation for sometime so that he would not be able to continue with his bestial activities,” the magistrate said.
The court thereafter sentenced the accused to seven years imprisonment with hard labour and no option of fine.

Terry G Declared Wanted By Nigeria Police


Contoversial singer cum producer, Gabriel Amanyi popularly known as Terry G, has been declared wanted by the Nigeria Police in relation to a hit-and-run incident in Ikeja Lagos, last Friday.
According to reports, Terry G had gone clubbing on Oba Akran Road, Ikeja penultimate Friday with friends when the incident happened.
Eye-witness reports that as Terry G was leaving the premises of the club at the dead of night, he recklessly drove out on high speed without looking and in the process crushed the legs of a funseeker who was identified as Moshood Azeez.
The victim who is a regular caller at the Computer Village Market, Ikeja was rushed to the General Hospital, Ikeja by good samaritans for medical attention.

My Son Did Not Kill His Wife – Mudashiru Arowolo

Akolade Arowolo who is standing trial at the Ikeja High Court for allegedly stabbing his banker wife Titilayo Omozoje to death last year, opened his defence with his witness, Mudashiru Arowolo telling the court that the deceased only had three wounds on her body.
In his witness, Mudashiru Arowolo who happened to be Kolade’s father said his son had wound on his palm which was a confirmation that he was trying to wrestle a knife from his wife.
He said he was surprised at what he read in the newspaper; the claim of Professor John Obafunwa, Chief Pathologist at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital who testified that the deceased had 76 stab wounds on her body, insisting she only had three.
He said he discovered some 20 wounds on the body of his son.
He also told the court that he knew that his son and the wife had been having quarrels but that Akolade was never violent.
The witness also claimed that he once heard the deceased threaten to kill his son and then herself.
He further said that Omozoje had left the husband’s house since January 2011 and that he was surprised to see the dead body of his daughter-in-law on June 25 in Akolade’s flat, after they had forced the door open.
“My son complained that the marriage was characterised by undue interference from our in-laws, both the father-in-law, Mr. George Oyakhire and the stepmother-In-law, Adetoun Oyakhire.”
“Immediately after the marriage, the couple started buying baby things because Omozoje was pregnant before they got married. My son told us that Onozoje requested for N500,000 and he said he could only afford N100,000. That was one quarrel. Immediately, Omozoje left for her parents’ house.
“Another instance of their quarrel was after she had been delivered of their baby in the hospital. Kolade said the stepmother-In-law had insisted she would keep the placenta. Then a quarrel ensued. But the Medical Director of the hospital gave it Kolade, being the baby’s father.
When told that different prosecution witnesses had said they saw many wounds on the body of the dead banker, the defendant’s father maintained that he only saw three wounds on the left part of her chest.
He however admitted to saying in one of his statements that he did ask why his son could have killed his daughter-in-law.
Under re-examination by his lawyer, Mudashiru said the statement was a mere response to the question of the IPO who asked how the defendant could have killed his wife.
Justice Lateefat Okunnu adjourned the matter till 4 December, 2012 for continuation of trial.

Man Narrates How Daughter Was Bathed With Acid By Estranged Lover

I do not, and can never understand what goes through the mind of people who think of bathing anyone with acid for any reason and go ahead to implement the evil plan knowing fully well that the victim will ultimately become a shadow of their old self, if not cross to the great beyond in the process.
I am still quite gobsmacked about this story you're about to read narrated by father, of how his 22 year old daughter was bathed with acid by her estranged lover whose motive till now is still yet unknown.
Read all about it when you continue.

Chika Egbo is a student of the Enugu State College of Education.

Her father, Matthew Egbo, narrates the incident that led to Chika’s state thus:

 “In March 2011, someone who identified himself as Lekan Sulaimon called me, asking for my daughter’s hand in marriage. We talked a lot and I promised to speak with Chika on the issue.

“My daughter later told me he was the boy she was in love with and said she had resolved to marry him.”

After much discussion, Matthew told Sulaimon to bring his parents for proper introduction, but the suitor said his father was ill and needed to be taken abroad for treatment. He also said his mother was abroad.

Matthew said, “On the June 25 date that we agreed on, Sulaimon brought seven men and four women dressed in Yoruba attire to my hometown, Enugu, where we held the introduction.

“But around November last year, my wife travelled from Taraba to Enugu and Chika told her she was pregnant.”

According to Matthew, Chika told her parents they should not be alarmed since she and Sulaiman had agreed to get married.

Chika was instructed to go to Lagos and tell Sulaiman’s relations about the pregnancy.

But when she got back from Lagos, Chika told her father that she discovered that most of what Sulaiman had told her about his parents were lies.

Matthew explained, “For instance, Chika discovered that Sulaimon’s father was hale and hearty. The father told her he was not aware of any plans by his son to get married.

“She also learnt that the mother was not abroad too. She visited her and she told us the woman received her well and even expressed joy that his son had found someone to marry.

“But after the visit, we heard nothing from neither Sulaimon nor his parents until after my daughter gave birth to a baby girl on May 4.

Chika had broached the idea of abortion to her parents, as she told them it was apparent that the man she was in love with had lied to her all along.

Matthew forbade her to consider abortion. After the baby was born, Chika was said to have informed Sulaimon, but he gave series of excuses why he could not visit her.

He reportedly told her he was facing some challenges and did not have the wherewithal to take care of the baby at the moment.

After a few months, Chika’s baby girl was weaned and taken to Taraba to live with Matthew and his wife.

The Egbos said they took the decision to take the baby off their daughter’s hands so that she could continue her study.

In November, Sulaimon began to request that he needed to see his baby, but Matthew told him to bring his parents to come and iron things out.

Chika was said to have insisted she did not want to have anything to do with the young man anymore.

But on November 5, Chika travelled to Lagos after Sulaimon had informed her that his mother wanted to see her. The unsuspecting girl left Enugu without informing her parents.

“My phone just rang that day and I was told to come to Lagos because a young man had poured acid on my daughter,” Chika’s father said.

Matthew said the message came as  a rude shock since he was not aware his daughter went to Lagos. He explained that the police were the ones who got his number from her phone.

He said,“What I learnt was that when she arrived Igando, Lagos, Sulaimon met her and she demanded that he should take her to his mother who wanted to see her.

“What we gathered from the little she could mumble to us was that Sulaimon went behind a house and as they were about to pick an okada to his mother’s house, he brought out a polythene.

“But when they stopped at a point and Chika thought they were going to proceed to his mother’s house, he just opened a container in the polythene he was carrying and emptied its content on her head.

“She told us when she realised that what Sulaimon poured on her had began eating into her skin, she raised the alarm and called for help.”

Passersby and sympathisers, who had been alerted to the young woman’s plight, pursued the fleeing Sulaimon. He was caught and taken to Ikotun Police Station.

 “Till now, I still don’t know why he did what he did,” Matthew said.

Divisional Police Officer of Ikotun, Mr. Augustin Akika, confirmed the incident, but said the suspect had been transferred to the state Criminal Investigations Department, Yaba.

Why are people so MEAN????It just beats me.

Ritualists Disguise As Beggars At Abuja Carnival To Steal Vital Body Organs Of Unsuspecting Victims

According to a programme on Silverbird’s Rythm 94.7FM Abuja, ritualists took advantage of the just concluded Cultural/Tourism Fiesta in Abuja Tagged, ‘Abuja Carnival 2012 – Carnival of Peace and Harmony’, to perpetrate their evil plans.
These ungodly people disguised as beggars seeking alms from unsuspecting carnival attendees, to explainable steal their sight and vital body organs.

One of such incidences is said to have occurred last Saturday, when a woman supposedly gave alms to a beggar who approached her in the front passenger’s seat of her husband’s car, only for her to discover that she couldn’t see with her eyes anymore.
She immediately raised alarm which attracted sympathizers including policemen and together with her husband, they apprehended the said beggar. After much prodding, the beggar reportedly revealed that he was part of a larger cartel of beggars who were at the carnival with instructions to carry out ritual acts.
When asked what could be done to reinstate the woman’s sight, the beggar reportedly gave the woman back her money and asked her to rub same on her eyes and voila! Her sight was instantly restored.
Indeed, we live in a very weird and diabolic society. No wonder some people would rather make donations to motherless babies and other homes for less privileged than give alms.

In attendance were some of Nigeria’s most loved entertainers and personalities including Denrele Edun, Alexandra Nwokedi, Olamide, Dipp,  Ruggedman, Nomoreloss, Dammy Krane, Pheel and G-Lory.
Speaking at the event, Austin Ufomba (Marketing Director, Guinness Nigeria Plc) said, “As always, Smirnoff brings the best in international nightlife to entertain its fans and with these themed events, we are once again pushing the boundaries of the party experience to ensure a night Nigerians will never forget.  When fans are looking to have fun and party, we want them to always choose to do so with Smirnoff.”

A day before the event, BN selected some winners for the party, here’s Nnenna Akubue account of the event;
We had mad fun at the Smirnoff Midnight Circus Launch Party that took place on Friday 23rd November 2012 at N-Tyce, Victoria Island, Lagos.
We were delayed for a few minutes at the gate but we were later ushered in with due apologies and we couldn’t believe it when we were informed that we where VIP guests (blushing), that was a major high for us, other highs was the chance to mix our own drinks (mixology) parting with great stars like Davido, Olamide, Danny Krane and Derenle
There were no lows at all but would have preferred if they had used a much bigger space because I was at last year’s party that took place in Lagos on Saturday 12th November 2011 on the island also.
Thanks Bellanaija for putting us in the rite xmas groove mood *wink* and I hope to be invited again and again and again.
Looking forward to the December 15th 3D Disco party.
