The tribute, titled: Jagaban, the master strategist @ 70: His undeniable factor in Nigerian politics!, K1 wrote:
Since the news started rolling out about your much-vaunted 2023 Presidential ambition, many have been caught with unprecedented fever, and this is not unexpected, because whenever you sneeze, everywhere catches cold. But that is not the big deal now, because you do not wallow in how you’ve made many in the social, economic and political terrains; it’s about your coming of age as a septuagenarian today, March 29, 2022.

Akanbi, Omo Olodoode, my gregarious leader of no mean status, Jagaban Borgu!, aside all other honours, awards and recognitions from left, right and centre, is 70 today. You have been there, done that and you deserve all accolades as a man of many attributes. As you turn 70 eventful years on earth today, my indefatigable leader does not look an inch a man that counts and looks back on his antecedents for pecuniary reasons, because you are someone that God has genuinely made to give mankind a reason to live in peace, harmony and co-habitation. Asiwaju, you have the undeniable credit of not just following where a path may lead, instead, you find where there is no path and make sure you walk it and leave a trail. You have shown over the years that your kind of leadership is about discovering and unlocking people’s potentials to become better which in essence defines you as someone who values results and not just mere attributes.
When you launched out as a politician in 1992, little did you know that you were on a journey to change the political landscape in Nigeria. Well over two decades now, you have brightened and continues to brighten the landscape of Nigerian politics and you are still not yet done.
At 70, baami Akanbi, you are eminently qualified to be Nigeria’s next President, all things being equal, and your moving train towards Aso Rock can never be confronted by any one born of woman except the Almighty. As an undisputed kingmaker on all divides, you have made so many in many spheres too numerous to mention and I can state without fear or favour that I have been a beneficiary of such grace. The question that’s been raging lately on the lips of many, especially the lovers of ‘omo Olodoode’ now is: Who says a kingmaker cannot be a king himself?
As you celebrate your special day today, I wish you sound health and more wisdom in leading us more.
On behalf of my entire organization, I, King Wasiu Ayinde Mashal, (K1 The Ultimate), wish you more fruitful and eventful years on earth, as you trudge on in your quest to become Nigeria’s next President.
Happy birthday my Leader!
Genevieve Nnaji Makes First Public Appearance Months After Mental Health Rumours
Popular Nollywood diva, Genevieve Nnaji has made her first public appearance in months ever since rumours went around that the thespian was battling with mental health issues.
In May, it could be recalled that rumours had sparked on the internet that the actress was battling with mental health issues after she had deleted all her posts and unfollowed all accounts on her verified Instagram account. Meanwhile, the actress team later debunked the claims.
The iconic actress was spotted at the 2022 edition of the Creative African Nexus in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire where she spoke to diplomats about the importance of development in Africa’s film industries.

The event which was held on Saturday 26th of November saw prominent individuals in attendance including English actor and singer Idris Elba; Novelist Chimamanda Adichie as well as Senator Ben Murray-Bruce.
Genevieve is one of the most prominent Nigerian actresses who has gained recognition in Africa and beyond. The thespian played a leading role in the popular movie “Lionheart” which was the first Netflix film from Nigeria and also the first movie submitted for the Oscars, unfortunately, the movie was later disqualified for having most of its dialogue in English.
Just in: Gospel musician, Sammie Okposo, slumps, dies at 51
Popular gospel musician, Sammie Okposo, is dead. He was aged 51.
The Wellu Wellu crooner, as he is fondly called, was said to have slumped and died in his residence on Friday morning.
The development comes about 15 hours after the musician posted a Throwback photo of Sammie Okposo Praise Party on his verified Instagram page on Thursday.
Okposo was also a music producer, psalmist, and CEO of Zamar Entertainment.
He released his first album Addicted in 2004.
He bagged multiple awards including KORA Best Gospel Artiste in Africa (2006), Crown SABC Best of African Gospel (2014), Afro Hollywood UK Best Gospel Artiste (2005), NEA Best Gospel Artiste of the Year (2007&2013), and NMA Best Contemporary Gospel Artiste among others.
The singer was in the eye of the storm in January when he offered a public apology to his wife, Ozioma for alleged infidelity.
The apology came a day after a lady, known only as African Doll, accused him of impregnating and abandoning her.
The gospel musician told his fans that he would be taking a step back from his ministry to focus on restoration and seek forgiveness.
In the heat of the public conversation on the alleged infidelity, he removed himself from public spaces by deactivating his social media platforms but returned later.
Nicki Aycox, ‘Supernatural’ Actress, Dies at 47
“My beautiful, smart, fierce, incredibly talented, and loving sister-in-law, Nicki Aycox Raab, passed away yesterday with my brother, Matt Raab, by her side. Nicki and Matt had a wonderful life together in California. She was definitely a fighter, and everyone who knew her loved her,” Susan Raab Ceklosky wrote.
The Oklahoma native went public with her battle with leukemia. In March 2021, Aycox took to Instagram, saying, “I can’t believe my last [three] months. But, it makes sense now. I became very ill thinking I had covid in Jan and Feb. Well things came to a head. I ended up in a hospital diagnosed with [leukemia] I want everyone to know I’m doing incredibly well and fighting my way thru chemo. I will update with a better pic of myself and talk about staying positive thru the worst of times.”

Aycox appeared on Supernatural in 2006 and 2008 as Meg, a demon loyal to Mark Pellegrino’s Lucifer. She also had regular/recurring roles on such series as Providence, Ed, Over There, Cold Case and Dark Blue and showed up in films including Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003) and The Girl on the Train (2014).
“Gutted to hear the great #NickiAycox, our first #MegMasters, passed away. Too young,” show creator Eric Kripke tweeted Sunday. “She was a delight & delivered lines like honey & venom. I marvel at how she made a simple word like ‘lackluster’ legendary.”
Aycox’s manager, Daryn Simons, told The Hollywood Reporter that the actress was receiving treatment at City of Hope. “Her strength was incredible,” she said.
