That Governor Wike’s Hype Man
Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, is a rare specie! He does his things differently, aside from talking like a teacher in primary school who will always want his pupils to complete every statement he makes by leading them on.

But one thing that makes Wike unique is his public appearances, which always look like a music concert; what with the regular interjection of a band that hypes him with praise songs and words. 

T4T never gets tired of watching his videos online anytime they pop up, and they always pop up because so many people do view them. And Governor Wike does not disappoint every time the hype man is showering praises on him while on stage. His dance step, which is now his trademark, will make anybody smile with amusement. 

The Governor may not be loved by many who have tasted his caustic tongue, but he is doing some laudable works in his state while also entertaining people like T4T with his shows online.

Maybe, just maybe, when his two-term as Governor winds up next year, it won’t be a bad idea if Wike joins the crowd of young people making short, entertaining videos online. He will surely be a hit!

By the way, do you notice that the hype man has the same coarse voice as the Governor? Is that intentional?

What Don Jazzy Did On Wednesday
T4T was working on his laptop in the small corner of his living room on Wednesday morning. He was minding his business when he heard the guttural voice of music star, Don Jazzy. There was no music system playing, not even a phone or boom box, so where is Don Jazzy singing from in T4T’s home?

He looked up and behold, it was Mrs T4T trying very hard to sound like Don Jazzy in the song he did with Johnny Drille that everybody is singing in the country at the moment. T4T was amused at first and decided to ask why she chose to mimic Don Jazzy’s voice instead of just singing it her own way. “Na dat Don Jazzy voice make the song sweet”, she replied in Pidgin English.

“But the song sweet on im own bifor na”, T4T told her. She agreed but argued that the remix with the Mavin Records’ boss made the hit ‘hitter’. Well, T4T had no choice than to agree with her.

A comedian once said that if you want your song to be a hit, just feature Don Jazzy to come and ‘cry’ inside. Funny, right, but that is true.

Anyway, Don Jazzy, see what you have turned Mrs T4T into, nor worry God dey!

Who Will Tell That Actress This?
EARLY in the week, Nollywood actress Empress Njamah posted a picture on her Facebook Timeline, which she captioned: “Back in the days”.

Well, someone who knows anyone who knows aunty Empress should tell her that it is not back in the ‘days’, but day. So, next time, it should be “Back in the day”. Thank you!

Daddy Showkey, But Why?
T4T saw the video of Ajegunle (bifor bifor) music star Daddy Showkey performing at a political rally in Delta State recently. Aside from the artiste who once ruled the music scene in the early 2000, struggling to get his groove back on stage, Showkey’s performance was centred on his two hit songs, Diana and Call My Name. These are songs of almost 20 years now, when the Whizkids, Burna Boys and Davidos of this world were still toddlers!

No na bros Showkey, all these Soro Soke generations nor even remember say you sing those songs bifor, you for don do new songs wey dem dey take gig for clubs instead of performing Diana dem. Nor vex o. The reaction of the Warri stadium crowd as you dey sing suppose tell you say wetin I dey talk na true. 

Nor vex o!
