Cossy Ojiakor releases her brand logo

2aa

Well, it seems Cossy is serious about releasing a tell-all book about the scandals that go on in the movie industry. The busty actress just released the logo for her Cossy brand which she said is trademarked here in Nigeria. The logo is ‘Cossylike’. She shared the logo on her Instagram account with the caption:

“Ungrateful Delilah captures the curious adventure and cautionary tale of a true life, tell it all tale, of a nollywood actress and also an ex-nollywood pimp that was used and duped by a very rich client. who turned out to be a well known pastor in Nigeria. It’s so intriguing to know what goes on behind the scenes. In Nollywood All that glitters is not gold. The flashy life’s of some Nollywood actresses and actors comes at a cost. Backbiting. Backstabbing. Pimping. It’s a crazy world there. Names have been changed to protect the true identity of all involved. 😁 i finally submitted the 500word and first 3pages to Casava republic a publishing firm i saw online. Hahahha Cossy and the above logo is a trademarked name in Nigeria. Maybe i go self publish, if i get a No from the Casava😁. Fingers crossed . Wish me luck

How we chose the 100 most influential people in the world for the 2017 – Time Magazine explains

bnn
Last week, Time magazine released it’s annual list of the 100 Most Influential People in the world for the year 2017. Explaining how the list was made, Time Magazine says ‘this year is a bit more complicated’.
These past 12 months have sharpened our edges as political debates in the U.S. and Europe, the Middle East and Asia, turned jagged and primal and seem almost perfectly designed to divide us more deeply. There are several people on the list whose influence is the subject of heated debate, from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to FBI Director James Comey to White House adviser Stephen Bannon. Each has champions and critics; all are shap­ing the course of this turbulent year’.
The magazine continues to say,
 ‘In making the list, we seek counsel from the TIME 100 alumni, many of whom contributed to this issue. Common writes on Chance the Rapper, who was inspired by a phone message Common left him long ago. Tina Fey offers a tribute to Donald Glover; Meryl Streep to Viola Davis; and Sheryl Sandberg to Melinda Gates’.

Davido and Ice Prince fight messy in Warri

a
Some of you may have heard the gist about Davido and Ice Prince’s face off in Warri last night, now let’s give you all the juicy details.
Last night, an event (Delta Alive) organised by Shina Peller (owner of Quilox night club) went down in Warri. The show had Davido, Lil Kesh, Ice Prince, CDQ and others as headliners.
According to an inside source, trouble started from the airport when Davido was picked up in a G-Wagon while Ice Prince was picked up with a saloon car.
The gesture infuriated Ice Prince and he let the organisers know he wasn’t pleased. Davido got to hear of his complains and was angry too.
Then the issue escalated during the concert when Ice Prince was made to perform before Lil Kesh, a move that’s seen as an insult to the bigger artiste.
Ice Prince made it an issue back stage and Davido who had been boiling from the car complaint and obviously a close friend of Lil Kesh jumped in defence of Kesh and things got messy.
Our source said, ‘when they got back to the hotel, Davido was really pissed so much that he went to Ice Prince’s door and started shouting and banging on the door before they calmed him down. When they were coming back to Lagos, they had to move them to the airport separately and put them in separate lounges at the airport because they were still boiling at each other’.
There’s also news that the fight backstage led to the destruction of equipment but the information could not at the moment as effort to reach all parties involved has been futile so far.
