Still basking in the euphoria of his recent successful launch and public presentation of his latest 3-cut album in Nigeria, ace Highlife Saxy Juju crooner, Yinka Best is set for a re-enactment of this much touted success story in the United Kingdom.

Billed for June 7, 2019, Best recently disclosed that all is set for a public launch/presentation of his new 3 albums in the United Kingdom; ultimately yielding to the yearnings of his fans with a kick-start edition in Manchester, United Kingdom.

Courtesy of a working relationship and partnership with renowned UK based promoter, the event is scheduled to hold at the prestigious Banquet Hall, Cheethamhill, Manchester, United Kingdom; while all efforts towards making the day another success story are in top gear especially in terms of protocols, logistics and activations.

According to Yinka Best, “this coming event is a follow-up to the successful launch we had in Nigeria. The 3-album release is a first of its kind in the history of juju music in Nigeria. It is a reflection and justification of my artistic creative growth and mastery”.

Continuing, Best added that “unlike the erroneous impression being held by some mischief makers, this new works exemplifies that Yinka Best is still very much on top of his game; especially as far as juju music is concerned both within and outside Nigeria”.

Renowned for his mastery and infusion of the Sax percussion into his brand of juju music, Best further disclosed that “besides the album launch, the event is also being used to celebrate my birthday which coincides with that period as well as leverage on that to appreciate my fans in Manchester”.

Titled ‘The Great Legends’, ‘Lift Me Up’ and ‘Dance of Joy’, the 3-album launch/public presentation is billed to attract legends of juju artistes. Top on the list of guest artistes for the night, according to Yinka Best is Afro Juju creator, Sir Shina Peters and Lalale Friday crooner, Wale Thompson who have both confirmed their attendance.

“Yes, SSP and Wale Thompson will be part of the event. Infact, both of them are already in the United Kingdom and will surely be there. And of course, I have been ably supported by Manchester based artistes who have all expressed and indicated their love and participation”, he said.

On Monday, August 12, the 36-year-old rapper revealed on the new episode of her Queen Radio Show that she and boyfriend Kenneth Petty will be married in “about 80 days.”

She explained that she and Petty filed for the marriage license and they still had to pick it up and she was traveling, by the time she came back, they had to renew it again.

“From that time, you have 90 days to get married. That was about a week ago, so now I have about 80 days,” Minaj shared.

Nicki also said that she and Petty will celebrate their union with a small, intimate ceremony and will plan a big wedding later.

“I have to work on my album and I have a lot to focus on that I don’t want to do the big wedding now. We’ll do the big wedding later,” Minaj said.

“I’ll be married before my album comes out, but will have my wedding after the album comes out. Before the 90 days is over, yes, I will be married.”

“I’m very happy about that because my baby makes me so happy,” she added

Back in June, Nicki who started dating Petty in December 2018 confirmed they had gotten a marriage license.

“We did get our marriage license,” Minaj said on Queen Radio at the time. “I think I have what I was striving for, just happiness. It was so hard to get to a happy place. Now that I’m there, I don’t want to compromise that for anyone or anything.”

The couple met when Nicki was a 17-year-old living in Queens, and they rekindled their romance last year.

BBNaija housemate Khafi faces sack by MET Police as she’s being investigated after sex on the show

Published

on

Big Brother Naija housemate and Met Police officer, Khafi Kareem, 29, is being investigated for having sex on the show despite warning from her bosses not to take part.

A Met spokesman said last night: “A PC, attached to the Met’s transformation command, requested permission to take part in a reality television entertainment show in Nigeria. Permission was not given.

“The Met is aware the officer has since appeared on the show without authority.

“The Directorate of Professional Standards has been informed and will be carrying out an investigation into the circumstances.

“The Met does not support the officer’s appearance nor does she represent the Met whilst appearing on the show.”

The force added that any officer found to have breached police standards of professional behaviour could face misconduct proceedings.

The 29-year-old UK based, who was once a ‘poster girl’ for the promotion of female and black staff for Met Police and earns about £30,000 a year, was said to have forcefully left her job for the show.

It was also reported that the authorities made the move to start an investigation as she became the talk of the show after videos of her having sex with her love interest Gedoni went viral online.

Her TV appearances have left ­colleagues unimpressed. Speaking on the issue, an unnamed colleague told The SUN newspaper: “She’s a serving British police officer – it’s outrageous.

“She asked permission to go on the show but, when her request was refused, she went anyway.”

Another Met source said: “There should be no way back for her from this and her superiors will have to act.

“She fitted the mould perfectly for how the modern force wants to ­portray itself but seems to have got a bit too big for her boots.

“It’s hard to see how can she argue that she hasn’t brought the force into disrepute.”

Meanwhile, Khafi is currently up for possible eviction.
