Prezzo was very serious when he revealed that he was done with Goldie. This was confirmed today early morning when the House mates were doing their morning exercise. The exercise was at first individually done but time reached when the had to make up a pair to help each other stretch. Here all eyes were on Prezzo and Goldie because every body expected them to pair up.
All what was expected was wrong because Prezzo ignored Goldie and instead decided to pair up with Roki. Goldie too never minded and didn't take this as a big issue so she went ahead and paired up with DKB. Though, Prezzo ignored Goldie, he was never settled as he couldn't stop watching DKB stretching Goldie in a very nice way , trying to make himself comfortable and simulating sex between her legs.
Will Prezzo survive without Goldie?

Call it Big Brother Star wars over the weekend and you can't be wrong as fights broke out in both the Upville and the Downville! While the housemates at the Downville got physical over the head of house's decision as to how the alcohol should be rationed before the Saturday night party, the stars at the Upville took on a word lashing battle with Prezzo's spit-fire tongue drawn at South African Barbz. And with Barbz composure while Prezzo lashed on at her lifestyle, age, career and what the 34 year old could do with her life after she's evicted (as Prezzo was very sure she will be evicted soon), one may not be convinced at first

"Through the very success "I am the future", "I represent Naija" and other campaigns, these awards have led the charge to restore faith in
country amongst young people, fundamentally altered for good the way young Nigerians are viewed as leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs, become a launch-pad for change projects, businesses, ideas and collaborations across the country, gotten more young people involved in leadership and governance, and in pioneering the merging of pop culture with development and advocacy, has made it cool for young people to get involved in their country. We are excited to be on that journey again."
At the event, the Committee will unveil the campaign for this season, the judges, the process, the categories, and the schedule of activities. including the town hall meetings across the country's six geo-political zones. There will also be an exclusive interactive session with organisers, winners and associates of the awards.
ABOUT THE FUTURE AWARDS
Referred to by the World bank as 'Nobel Prize for Young Africans", The Future Awards continues to be the most influential and popular youth platform on the continent. It identifies young people who have excelled at their work, celebrates their achievements, and showcases them as role models to inspire a generation of Africans to believe in themselves and the future of their countries.
With outreaches to Ghana, Ethiopia and South Africa and having visited at least 24 states in Nigeria, The Future Awards has also been described by respected leaders as "Africa's biggest youth event" and in seven years, has produced 126 winners and over 1,000 nominees. Our mission is to inspire leadership and build enterprise. To this end, The Future Awards has created authentic made-in-Nigeria
superstars, outside of entertainment, fashion and the media. Winners include female farmer and face of youth entrepreneurship in Nigeria,
Mosunmola Umoru; international author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, NASA scholar, Tosin Otitoju, founder of the Dustbin Estate Children's Foundation Tolu Sangosanya, investor of the 1-second power change-over
based in Ajegunle, Otejiri Oghoghorie, and the 2011 winner for Young Person of the Year, farm technology entrepreneur and Rolex Award winner, Nnaemeka Ikegwuonu. This is a critical mass of young people that are positioned as leaders and whose collective influence can change the leadership equation for an evolving nation.
The Future Awards, and its sister brand, The Future Project have thus become known and respected across the continent for being in the
forefront of inspiring a new generation of leaders/leadership for Nigeria, working with the Africa Union, the US Government, the British Council, the Ministry of Youth Development, the Nigerian Presidency

This dude Olamide has always being my person from inception, but getting him down for an Interview hasn't been easy for his strong love for the studio. This dude is very hard working and energetic. At last, I got him for a couple hours to talk to me about a few issues which I am sure his 'friends' as he calls them want to know. This dude is a very humble individual and I enjoyed every bit of time spent with him on this day. Here are a few of the excerpts of our discussion.
Tell me more about your relationship with Cabasa and how it all started?
More like a father and son thingy. I met ID Cabasa long ago when I was 16 and he developed instrumentals and my zeal. I I told him how much I was willing to learn if he would give me room. We picked it up from
Blessed with lovely vocals and the ability to pen soulful lyrics, Christine Ben-Ameh has come a long way from the shy-eyed young girl who won the Nokia First Chance competition, improving in talent, craftsmanship and style. Switching between English and her native Idoma, Christine sings in this soulful ballad about fatherly love, dedicating it to her dad who she describes as a superhero. It is hoped that everyone appreciates the love of their fathers' this Children's Day even more because of this song.
5. See me ri: This is a new street jam from the black man from Mushin Wande coal of the defunct Mo'hits. Although this street song is still very new but it got a lot of air play at the moment. The song is off the Mavin album 'Solar Plexus'. See me ri is a slang which I first heard on the streets in Ibadan Oyo state. It wasn't indeed popular until when picked up by this black dude, now its on the streets of Lagos, it can only get better. Dear reader, you see me ri.
4. Kondo: A slang dropped by the late Da Grin was far popular than the act himself, as every region gave 'Kondo' its own meaning. The female and male folks for a long time came to agree over something which was the meaning of 'Kondo'. The song did well commercially, toping charts, rocking parties and clubs, and
Yetunde has a strong beautiful voice, and whoever watched the show would fully and certainly agree with me. She is influenced by Whitney Houston, India Arie, Jill Scott, Lionel Richie, Asa, Tracy Chapman and Fuji all stars, who knows, she might influence other up and coming artists as well.

This is not one of his familiar theatrics. Musi-comedian, Julius Agwu, is indeed launching a television show called Jokes Apart. Billed to go on air in a matter of weeks, the show, according to the comedy powerhouse, is not exactly a new concept.
Jokes Apart with Julius Agwu, is a satirical thrust on political, social, cultural and economical issues across Nigeria, Africa and the world. We will treat topical issues in a didactic but humorous way so that people will be entertained and still get the message.

A brief into your background and lifestyle?
I grew up in an extended family .I have a lot of siblings, my mother raised me to be very religious. My brothers actually made me discover the music thing in me because they kept buying CDs of musicians I liked then so I steal CDs most times to listen to them over and over. My lifestyle is simple.

Music has always been part of me though I realized that at the age of 7 and since then it’s been my joy and motivation to success in life.
Let’s discuss your kinda music, your inspirations, mentors
My music like I said earlier is Afro Dancehall and the inspiration to my kind of music has to do with a lot of
Big Brother Africa Stargame Update: Mampi Kicked out, Downvillers Edith, Eve, Keitta and Mildred nominated
The show kicked off with a performance by Tanzanian hip-hop artist, Diamond.
IK told Maneta that she was safe, and at that moment, Mampi knew she was the one leaving. She gave the rest of the Housemates a hug and made her way out. Mampi then came onto the stage where she was interviewed by IK. The ex-Housemate said that she thinks Zainab has the potential to win because she's "crazy."
IK then turned to the random Nomination machine to see which Downville Housemates get nominated. Ghana's Keitta and Mildred were selected first. A second random Nomination was conducted, to which Botswana's Edith and Eve were selected.
