After dropping the emotive and fan-favorite “Beautiful”, and right of the heels of being named an African Hip-Hop king by Lobatana Africa, X.O Senavoe follows up his ground-breaking intro video for “Taxi Music” with the excellent new video for his first solo joint “Say It Again”, produced by Kid Konnect.
The “Say It Again” music video, shot on location all around the world including New York, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa and Canada, was brought to life by the co-partnering of director Ike Awuah and X.O Senavoe and shows what X.O and #XONATION is all about: the blending of all types of people from all walks of life doing ‘Xtra-Ordinary things in ordinary ways. It also depicts the movement that is the continually-growing thousands of X.O fans around the world.

His twist on the “xo” signature, using “when your chick’s blowing me kisses, she’s really saying my name” serves as a tie-in to the playful nature of the song while solidifying X.O’s royalty ranking as a rap giant. The video will be followed right away by the release of the first single of the year and kicks off what will be a great year of non-stop X.O music.

"MO ABUDU HAS CONQUERED A CONTINENT": CNN's LEADING WOMAN PROFILES "AFRICA'S OPRAH"

CNN has profiled Mo Abudu, Executive Chairman and CEO of EbonyLife TV
and first black woman to own a pan-African TV channel, EbonyLife TV, as
one of the continent's leading women.

'Mo' as she is fondly called was interviewed on 'Leading Women' - a show
that connects it's audience to extraordinary women in the world - as a
talk show host and media owner who presents the vision of a very
different Africa. The show celebrates women at the top of their field,
exploring their careers, lives and ideas.

With EbonyLife TV, Africa's first Global Black Entertainment and
lifestyle network, Mo has won acclaim for building a TV network creating
1,000 hours of fresh, engaging, original and premium homegrown
programming yearly. And there are plans to unveil even more channels -
all under the EbonyLife brand.


Calling her "Africa's Oprah", CNN notes that Mo Abudu’s greatest
achievement and what makes her story remarkable is not just conquering
African TV - but doing it without any prior media experience.

"There were many knock backs along the way, many people telling me 'you
can't do these things," said the British-born entrepreneur in an
interview with CNN's Stephanie Busari. "But I think what's important in
life is that you believe in yourself and the things you can do."

SINGER, ISOLATE SIGNS A MULTI-MILLION NAIRA DEAL WITH PROLIFIC CONCEPT MUSIC & ENTERTAINMENT, AND ENDS FEUD WITH 9ICE.

Renowned elite singer Isolate Arafada, signs a multi million naira recording and management deal with multi national record company Prolific Concept Music & Entertainment Nigeria, with affiliates in the United Kingdom, United States of America and Canada.

In the heel of this, the multi talented maestro also ended his longtime rumoured feud with 9ice, also a highly rated musical elite and a household name in the Nigeria music industry. 9ice boast of a large number of hits songs such as Gongo Aso, Photocopy, Gbamu-Gbamu to name a few. With this timely move, the duo definitely has done great for the game. To the doubting Thomas among us, it remains a rumour, while to some others its best a nightmare, but whatever the case is, the question the fans ask is "Will there ever be a collaboration between both unusually talented music icons"?

Prolific Music, known for quite a number of establishments like the early 20's segment of U.K pirate radio dubbed as Prolific Radio, also the name is used for the label's production wing, which has garnered credits from major artistes like late musical icon Dagrin, extremely talented Oritsefemi, multi dimensional Harrysong, amongst many.

This move is a major one for the music industry as the super talented singer Isolate made a spectacular change in his career by signing a deal that is tagged groundbreaking as the label is also home for "Abiz" (a music producer and repository of musical ideas, who was a guest featured artiste on Oritsefemi's most critically acclaimed album ‘The musical Taliban’), the highly anticipated and flow-consistent indigenous rap artiste "Showzjay" as well as "Ayoyemi" the reigning Miss Nigeria, Florida USA, the title she has held on to from 2012 till date, due to her phenomenal beauty, intelligence and talent, which has not only sought her out but has consistently made her best among equals.

In a most recent interview with Isolate, he mentioned that this move is for the fans, in order to know the extent of their importance to him and that 9ice is held in high regard always by him. They wish one another unending success in their musical deeds and other life endeavours.
While we wait for that unexpected collaboration, Isolate offers the single "IBA" his first release in months, a heavy bass line club banger. Produced by "ProlificRadio".

KWARA GOVERNOR ABDULFATAH AHMED HOST GLEEHD FOUNDATION'S LEADERSHIP TEAM TO DISCUSS DRIVING TRADE AND INVESTMENT TO KWARA STATE


As a follow-up to the recent weeklong Centennial Celebration hosted by GLEEHD Foundation in London to promote Bilateral Trade and Investment between UK and Nigeria,and the Centennial Award Night where Governor Ahmed was a recipient of the A.D King Prize for Achievement in Public Service Award, the Executive Governor of Kwara State, Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed hosted the GLEEHD Foundation leadership team at the Kwara State Government House to discuss the Kwara Agricultural Masterplan and other initiative of the state to drive growth and economic investment.

The GLEEHD delegation was led by GLEEHD Foundation’s Director Dayo Israel and Mr Samson Abidemi Ajayi, the Director of GLEEHD’s Kwara technical partner- Gold and Diamond Impact Group, a KWARA based NGO.

Speaking at the meeting, GLEEHD Foundation’s Director Dayo Israel said “Mr. Governor, our goal in GLEEHD Foundation is to help Government truly meet the needs of their people and to strengthen governance into becoming more impactful and that is why we are delighted to be playing a part in Kwara’s effort to attract foreign investments into the state’s agricultural sector”.

He further added that despite the Governors achievement in the areas of power generation, getting more communities on the national grid and education including lowering school fees of student at Kwara State University, the Governor must do more to fight childhood poverty. “Every family deserves a chance at prosperity” He says, and “Mr Governor, your greatest laurel would not be in your awards like that which you received in London but in the amount of lives that has been touched continuously during your administration”, he added.

In his response, the Governor thanked the delegation for their honour at the London meeting; promised not to rest on the laurels but intensify his efforts to make lives better for the ordinary man.
“Agriculture is the main driver of our economy and as we have discussed, remains a paramount part of our state economic development policy. Our goal is to transform kwaran farmers to commercial farmers and ensure even the common man feels the dividends of democracy”, he said.

The Governor further added, “My goal is to take the Kwaran farmers to the level where they can make money from agriculture. 70% of Kwarans are farmers and our focus is to empower them. The Water favours us (we are behind the river Niger), the land favours us, the soil favours us and the people are ready. So if anyone is thinking of investing in Agriculture, Kwara should be their number 1 destination in Nigeria.

The governor pointed out that his government have decided to invest in agriculture and farmers and have started execution with 10 model farmers from the state, with the major focus on rice and cassava. He emphasised the fertility of the land and hopes that this model will be adopted by other states in the nearest future.

The GLEEHD Foundation London event was attended by Governors of Edo, Bauchi, Delta, Osun, Plateau and Kwara as well as other business and economic leaders from Nigeria and included a High Level investment meeting at Buckingham Palace with Former UK Ambassador for Global Trade and Investment – HRH Prince Andrew Duke of York.
