Nigerian Celebrities know that one statement that doesn’t sit well with the public will get you in a cocnundrum of bashing. It doesn’t matter how much they like you, or you think they like you. That’s the hard lesson Mr Eazi is learning today.
Earlier in the evening, Mr Eazi made a statement about Ghanaian influence on Nigerian music, and that didn’t sit well with Nigerians. He said “Ghana’s influence on present day “Naija Sound” cannot be over emphasized!!!”. That’s all it took.
Ghana's influence on present day "Naija Sound" cannot be over emphasized!!!

Months after Kim Kardashian-West was robbed for around $10 million worth of jewelry while staying at a luxury private residence in Paris, the French police has arrested 17 suspects
According to the Associated Press, 17 people have been arrested in connection with the armed robbery, which took place in October of last year. Kim’s husband Kanye West canceled a concert in New York mid-set when he heard the news about the robbery.
In addition to the arrests, French authorities also seized multiple firearms and nearly $150,000 in cash during a series of early-morning raids.
Authorities have four days to interview the suspects, who range in age from 23 to 72, before they either charge the suspects or release them.
Jean Veil, Kardashian’s lawyer, described the arrests as a win for the reality star, given that her jewelry may be found.
“These arrests are a nice surprise because we might be able to find the jewels,” Veil said while speaking with French magazine L’Express.
In early October, Kardashian was ambushed and robbed of around $10 million worth of jewelry while alone in Paris for Fashion Week. She was reportedly tied up, held at gunpoint, and later locked in a bathroom.
As a result of this month’s arrests, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star might be interviewed again by investigators, and could find herself asked to identify the suspects.
Kardashian has kept a relatively low profile following the robbery, but was spotted at Jay Z and Beyoncé’s party for their daughter Blue Ivy this past weekend.

The beef between Chris Brown and Soulja boy been somewhat of a whirlwind. Today is off to just as bad of a start as Soulja Boy posted an Instagram video with Floyd Mayweather and continues to taunt the singer.
However, Soulja really crossed a line today when he re-posted a photo from Chris Brown’s baby momma Nia Guzman that feature’s the singer’s daughter with TMT (The Money Team) and Floyd Mayweather tags.
Soulja Boy has deleted the photo but the damage has been done and Chris Brown decided to share his frustration with the situation and give the rapper a few choice words in a new Instagram video. The one minute clip shows a very agitated Brown assuring that he will make the fight happen, while also simultaneously threatening the rapper to cease his exploitation of his daughter.
Kylie Jenner has been cashing in on every bit of publicity. The 19-year-old model/designer/businesswoman is moving up the ranks within her superstar family. Based on her 2016 income, she is estimated to be the second-highest earner in the Kardashian clan, second to only her half-sister, Kim Kardashian, who remains indomitable among all reality stars.
Kylie’s cosmetic line, specifically her wildly successful lip kits, played a huge role in her skyrocketing wealth, reports Forbes as part of its 30 Under 30 coverage. She may not have been born with those luscious lips, but wow have they paid off.
Now the new report doesn’t reveal her exact earnings for the entire year, though according to an earlier report, Forbes estimated that Kylie racked up around $18 million in the period from June 2015 to June 2016, putting her just ahead of her 21-year-old sister Kendall, who earned a reported $17 million in the same timeframe. Kylie’s millions still pale in to the $51 million earned by Kim in that one-year span, though she’s got plenty of years to catch up.
Elsewhere in the fam, Khloe ranked 4th with $15 million, and Big Rob, unsurprisingly, came in last place. But hey, I’d gladly take $2 million to binge on Eggos and knock up Blac Chyna.
