Ramsey Nouah makes shocking revelation about Buhari and Herdsmen attack

Nollywood star, Ramsey Nouah, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration of failing to keep Nigerians updated on its plans.

The actor barred his mind in a chat with reporters said, “I always shy away from discussing politics in Nigeria because it is a sensitive subject but right now it’s hard to tell where Nigeria is headed.

“Most importantly, the government is making a huge mistake of not divulging enough information with the polity. They are so fixated in the old way of passing information oblivious of the fact that these days everything is open.

The presidency should come out and deem it to talk about its daily, weekly and even monthly plans with the citizenry.

“They need to thoroughly address issues that affect Nigerians. But they don’t do that and then they just assume that we know they would work on it (issues). It is only when there is so much public outcry and criticism that the president’s offices will come out once in a while and to say “we are working on it.”

While some of his colleagues have ventured into politics, perhaps leveraging on their fame, the 47-year-old actor says he is not cut out for politics. He noted, “I never say never but delving into politics is going to be a tough one for me because I am not a very diplomatic person. I don’t know how to call white black I say it as it is; I don’t think politics in Nigeria really embraces that.”

Superstar actor, Ramsey Nouah believes the quality of Nollywood movies has dropped considerably compared to what was obtainable in the past.

The veteran Nollywood actor, Ramsey Nouah said the Nigerian movie industry has failed to capture issues of herdsmen attack and recent happenings in Nigeria due to lack of structure.

According to him, actors were more interested in portraying ‘posh’ things, appearing on red carpets with perfect pictures rather than concentrating on pressing issues in the country.

Nouah said, “There is a lot of dynamics going on in the industry tending towards not finding bearing and lack of structure.

“Back in the days, a whole of filmmakers of our kind were passionate about arts and gave it all today it is more like on the surface, people more conscious about their looks rather than acts.

“There was more depth in the past than now, every movie productions now are more about eye candy rather than depth of the performance and outlook.

“Everyone wants to shoot about posh things, cars and not filming issues about herdsmen attack, killings, villagers and political issues happening in the country

“It is not actors fault, it is what the market demand and everyone is thinking about the quick way to wealth so they jump into it.”

50 Cent’s story of multi- million-dollars shootings deal

“Go, go, go, go, go, go, go shawty, it’s your birthday.”

That – In Da Club – was probably a lot of people’s first introduction to 50 Cent, back in 2003.
15 years later the rapper has just signed a deal worth up to a reported $150m with TV network Starz – something he’s labelled “the biggest deal in premium cable history”.

It’s the latest step in the very interesting career of Curtis Jackson.
Get Rich or Die Tryin’
50’s mainstream arrival came in 2003, the year his debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin’ and breakthrough single In Da Club were released – and also the year he won the BBC’s first ever Sound Of award.

Get Rich was an instant classic, and it was everywhere.

BBC 1Xtra DJ MistaJam recently got fans to listen back to the album as part of Black History Month and National Album Day .

“The energy that you get from 50 Cent’s music from back then is different to the kind of energy you feel now, in terms of just… gritty. You feel it in your soul.

“It was almost gritty with commercial – he mixed it very well,” one of the listeners, Laura, said. It sums up his career.

The album spawned three top-10 singles and led to a number of critics calling 50 the last of the gangster rappers – which leads us on to…

Nine times
Ask someone who knows very little about 50 Cent to name a fact about the artist, and they might mention that he was shot nine times during an incident outside his grandmother’s home in Queens, New York, in 2000.

He was shot in his legs, hands and face. Both of his legs were broken in multiple places. And while his injuries were horrific, the story helped build his brand in the early years.

To people listening to his music, it made it all the more authentic.
“It doesn’t hurt as much as people imagine it hurts – because of the adrenaline. But it hurts after,” he told Oprah Winfrey of the shooting in 2012.

“Going through that experience, when you get hurt that bad either your fear consumes you or you become a bit insensitive.

“There was a point where I was afraid… and then in the recovery process I got tired of being afraid.

The only way to cover those emotions was to be a bit more aggressive. And to be angry about the situation opposed to how I was actually feeling at that point.”

50 says the man who shot him is dead, and the one who paid him got life in jail.

Rap beefs
The early years of 50’s career, in a lot of ways, were defined by other people.

At various times you couldn’t have a conversation about 50 Cent with your friends without mentioning the likes of Ja Rule, The Game, G-Unit, Kanye West – he even had a semi-beef with Oprah prior to the interview above.

The one with Ja Rule, who grew up in the same area as 50, is the best known. It was genuine bad blood, which ended up manifesting itself in a number of diss tracks as well as serious violence.

50’s beef with Kanye was a bit more industry, and it was a battle that he definitely lost.

The pair’s albums Graduation and Curtis were released on the same day in 2007 and 50 Cent suggested that if Kanye’s sold more than his, he would quit making music.

Graduation won and, while 50 never quit, his music didn’t quite reach the same heights again.

Nowadays, rather than a microphone, Instagram tends to be 50’s weapon of choice – most famously to make repeated claims that boxer Floyd Mayweather is unable to read.
Get the strap

The 50 Cent loves money.
Every one of his Instagram posts is signed off with the message “get the strap” – encouraging his followers to go out and make some money.

And that’s certainly something he’s had success with during his career.

50 Cent’s net worth has fluctuated – peaking at $155m in 2015, according to Forbes, a year when he also filed for bankruptcy.

Nonetheless, plenty of his business ventures have been successful.
His G-Unit clothing brand was successful at a time when every hip-hop artist wanted a piece of fashion, and his G-Unit sneakers in collaboration with Reebok were his day’s Yeezys.

The biggest deal of 50’s business career though has to be Coca-Cola buying Glaceau, a vitamin water company he had taken a 10% stake in, for $4.1bn.

It’s said to have earned him anywhere up to $100m.

Power and Starz
For a lot of kids in 2003, there was nobody cooler than 50 Cent.

And he’s one of the few rappers from that time who’s been able to stay relevant to the latest generation of rap fans – although not necessarily for his music.

50 executive produces and stars in Power, the Starz drama that debuted in 2014 and is also shown on Netflix.

It follows Ghost (Omari Hardwick), a drug dealer hoping to turn legit, and has developed a very passionate and loyal following.

50 isn’t the main character, like in his biopic Get Rich or Die Tryin’ – his job behind the camera is more important.

It’s why Variety reports that 50’s new deal with Starz involves the artist developing scripted and unscripted TV shows through his G-Unit Film and Television company.

“He’s staying relevant with whatever he’s doing – even if he’s not got the best track out right now we still know who he is,” fan Channette Carleo said on MistaJam’s show.

And with another series being picked up by ABC, it looks like 50 Cent’s takeover of the small screen might only just be beginning.

Mr Ibu Reacts To One Night Stand Sex Claim Of A Lady

Nollywood actor, John Okafor, popularly known as Mr Ibu, has reacted to a statement posted on Instagram by a female fan claiming that he had a one-night stand with her.

According to a chat with The Punch, Mr Ibu said although he posed for a photo shot with the fan in question, he never had sexual intercourse with her.

Recounting what happened, he said:
“The woman approached me to take a picture with me alongside her husband.

She said she happily posted those pictures she took with me without any write-up.

It was when a blog carried the picture that a write-up appeared from nowhere.

“I initially called police to arrest the woman, but she came to my house with her family to apologise that she would not have posted the picture had she known it would cause trouble.

She swore that she would not have a child, if she ever wrote anything evil about me.

I believed her. I told her that she did nothing wrong by posting the picture.”

The actor described the offensive statement as the handiwork of unknown enemies who were planning to tarnish his image.

Pleading with members of the public not to believe everything they read online, Ibu also claimed that some people, in an attempt to rubbish his name, had hacked into his social media accounts and impersonated him.

He said:
“I know that I have enemies. They were the ones who put that write-up to tarnish my image, but they can never succeed because I have never stepped on anybody’s toes and I will never do it.

I only want to upgrade people and make them happy.

“Some people are trying to pull me down. I’ve witnessed instances where hackers used my account to defraud other people and upload all sorts of nonsense about me.

But I always tell people that I am not the owner of those accounts.”

On his ongoing movie project, Ibu described it as the biggest he had done till date, while disclosing that a major Hollywood actor had been billed to appear in the movie.

Asked what other career he would have chosen beside comic acting, Mr Ibu said he would have loved to be a football agent.

“If I hadn’t chosen acting as a career, I would definitely have become a football agent,” he said.
