The Grammys has been known to celebrate artistic excellence in the music industry, so its ad campaigns often depict the recording academy’s eccentric taste in music, coupled with its knack for something out of the ordinary. In anticipation of its 61st awards show, the recording academy released a #LetsHearIt ad on its Instagram account on Friday, Dec 7, 2018. 

The 27 seconds ad featured music from none other than Nigeria’s own IBK Spaceshipboi. IBK Spaceshipboi, who is as renowned for his career as an artist as he is for his work as a producer, made history as the first Nigerian to make music for a Grammy ad.

Earlier today, IBK Spaceshipboi reposted the ad video and shared the good news via Instagram. He wrote: Music by: IBK SPACESHIPBOI. πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸΏπŸ™ŒπŸΌ   I remember my first time pushing the "on" button to watch American television. I am a sucker for commercials so I watched the ads religiously so much so that my girlfriend at the time would yell from the living room "they are showing your commercials oh!". I told myself "1 day, you will create music that will be on one of these commercials". So I started paying attention to the genres of music that thrived in that industry and became inspired to create 6 pieces at the time. Fast forward 2 years later, I get a call from the awesome team at Sostereo saying the Grammy's would love to use 1 of my pieces for the 2019 commercial and would love if you could spruce it up a bit. So spruce it I did πŸ˜ and the rest is good history. From thought to reality, my music now plays on a Grammy commercial on American television. This Warri boy from Nigeria; God writes the story, we just act it out.

IBK Spaceshipboi should probably add HistoryMaker to his profile, considering the fact that he made history with his 2017 album titled “MUSIC FOR COMMERCIALS VOL. 1 – A SPACESHIPBOI EXPERIMENT.” The 10 minute album featuring 10 songs in 10 different genres was the first of its kind. He also made history when he created the music content for the BET CYPHER featuring Nigeria rap acts at the BET HIP-HOP AWARDS 2011. He has lived up to the Spaceshipboi name, consistently crafting something out of space. It’s no wonder that his craft is Grammy ad worthy. The Grammys is America’s biggest music awards show and we’re proud to know that IBK Spaceshipboi made commercial music for the 2019 Grammy ad. #LetsHearIt for IBK Spaceshipboi for this awesome achievement.

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for
recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans.

Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history. The contributions of African-Americans have been invaluable to our society at large. While there is no blueprint for how to celebrate Black History Month, there are many things to do in and around your city as we celebrate this special month.

Here at Olamild Ent., we are celebrating by sharing these 6 facts that you probably never knew.

► You probably know that Maya Angelou was the first African-American woman to write a non-fiction best-seller. But perhaps you don't know that Phillis Wheatley was the first published African- American female author. She was a servant who published her first poem at the age of 12 in the mid-1700s.

► Liberia was founded and colonized by expatriates. The West African country is one of two sovereign states in the world started as a colony for ex-slaves and marginalized blacks. Sierra Leone is the other.

► Lincoln University in Pennsylvania is the United States' first degree-granting historically black university. It paved the way for the 104 other historically black colleges, which have produced distinguished alums like Thurgood Marshall, Spike Lee and Oprah.

► Shirley Chisholm was the first black woman elected to Congress in 1968 and the first black major-party presidential candidate.

► Tice Davids, a runaway slave from Kentucky, was the inspiration for the first usage of the term “Underground Railroad.” When he swam across the Ohio River to freedom, his former owner assumed he’d drowned and told the local paper if Davids had escaped, he must have traveled on "an underground railroad." (Davids actually made it alive and well.)

► You might know that Ella Fitzgerald and Count Basie were the first African-Americans to win GRAMMY Awards. But did you know that Hattie McDaniel, the first African-American to win an Oscar, was not allowed to attend the national premier of Gone with the Wind, the film featuring her winning performance, because she was black?


Billy Graham, one of the world's most famous Christian evangelists, has died, a family spokesman said today. He was 99. Graham died at his North Carolina home this morning, the spokesman said.

Known as "America's pastor," Graham was a key figure in the revival of the U.S. evangelical
Christian movement. The preacher began holding revival meetings in the 1940s and went on to become an adviser to several U.S. presidents. He had been in poor health in recent years, and had turned his international ministry over to son Franklin Graham.

  • He spoke to over 200 million people in his lifetime.
  • He met every American president starting with Harriet Truman all the way to Barrack Obama
  • He was a key figure in reviving the American evangelical movement.
  • He was the first Christian to preach publicly behind the iron curtain.
Despite numerous hospitalizations in recent years, Graham's work remained in the public eye late into his life. In 2011, around his 93rd birthday, he released what The Associated Press said was his 30th book, "Nearing Home: Life, Faith, and Finishing Well," on the subject of aging. Also in 2011, audio files documenting six decades of his ministry were put online in a searchable database. Graham brought evangelical Christianity into the mainstream.

As a spiritual adviser to U.S. presidents, he had great access to the White House. "Each one I've known long before they ever became president, been in their homes many times; always called them by their first names, until they became president," Graham said of several former presidents.

He was especially close to Dwight D. Eisenhower, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and both Bushes. Bill Clinton turned to him after his much publicized sex scandal, and George W. Bush credited Graham with helping him to quit drinking alcohol. When asked how his life would be different if it were not for Billy Graham, George W. Bush said simply, "I wouldn't be president."

Donald and Melania Trump met Graham at the preacher's 95th birthday party in 2013, but they never met after Trump took office as president. The evangelist brought his "Billy Graham Crusades" around the world, preaching to more than 210 million people in 185 countries and territories. His largest such gathering drew 1 million people in Seoul, South Korea, in the 1970s.

Today we celebrate the life of Nigerian football icon Stephen Keshi. Football took Keshi all over the
world, as he played across Africa, Europe, and the US. Known affectionately as “Big Boss,” he was beloved as a player for Nigeria’s national team, where he earned more than 60 caps, each for an appearance in an international match, and represented the country at the FIFA World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations.

After his great success as a player, Keshi moved into the next phase of his career: coaching. When the “Big Boss” became coach of the Togo national team, he brought his trademark passion with him. Against the odds, Keshi led Togo all the way to a qualifying spot in the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

He achieved his personal dream in 2011, when he became the Nigerian national coach, cementing his place in African (and world) football history. Coaching the Nigerian team, Keshi won the African Cup of Nations in 2013, and in 2014 became the first coach of an African nation to make it to the knockout round of a World Cup.

Keshi is one of only two men to win the Africa Cup of Nations as both a player and a manager - a testament to his wit, talent, and love for the sport.

A big cheer for this football legend, on what would’ve been his 56th birthday!

- In Kantudu community, there is no doctor, no medicine and cows serve as ambulances

In 2017, Kannywood Star Ali Nuhu and the ONE Campaign visited Kantudu community in Kano where they experienced first-hand, the stark reality of the health care crisis in Nigeria. In Kantudu community, the health care centre is in tatters, the centre lacks facilities, manpower and even medicine; women and children are the most vulnerable. With no ambulance in sight, the community employs the use of cows hitched to a cart to carry the ill to the medical centre.

According to the National Health Act 2014, all Nigerians shall be entitled to a basic minimum package of health services. Without this basic package of services, Nigerian mothers will continue to die at high rates in childbirth while others die from illnesses like diabetes, and the lack of emergency medical treatment for road traffic injuries.

Serah Makka-Ugbabe, the ONE in Nigeria Country Director said in a statement released in Abuja: “The Nigerian health sector remains in crisis. In the last decade we have not seen appreciable enhancements to the quality of healthcare for Nigerians. Instead, we have observed a decline. How long will we continue accept such decay in the health sector? It is time for a step-change. It is time to ensure that all Nigerians have access to maternal, newborn, immunization, emergency and routine care at a minimum standard.


Nigerian Veteran actor, Zack Orji shares his thoughts about the on going debate of payment of tithes in churches. The debate started when OAP Daddy Freeze began to question the integrity of Pastors. He accused them of enslaving their congregations and extorting money from them. 

Zack feels sorry for those condemning the payment of tithes.


Telecommunications giant, Globacom, has distanced itself from media reports which insinuated that it was the preferred bidder to acquire telecommunications company, 9Mobile. A press statement issued in Lagos on Friday said: “Globacom has not acquired 9Mobile as widely reported in the media.”

According to the company, "We are bound by the terms of the acquisition process as stipulated by the authorities handling it and we will not in any way sway or deviate from the rules". “We repose confidence in Barclays Africa, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) which are handling the process that will lead to the emergence of a new owner for the company”.

Globacom urges all stakeholders and, indeed, the Nigerian public to disregard the report.


It was a night of pure music magic as "One Night Stand With "Adekunle Gold" + The 79th Element (#ONSWAG) held last night for fans of good music. 

Adekunle Gold, in his elements, showed why he's a force to be reckoned with as he dished out what can be termed as a "performance". Bringing out Simi for a duet, the lovebirds show why they really cannot keep their love away from the media anymore. They had such a wonderful chemistry on stage with a beautiful rendition of their collaboration.

#ONSWAG was truly a night of pure bliss as Adekunle Gold delivered amazing musical sets that will be talked about by the public for a long time to come.

Gusto TV was there to bring you the highlights of the show.


Tis the season to be jolly; fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la! For couple of weeks every year, the world takes on a magical glow. People travel around the world to exchange gifts and spend time with their loved ones. Whether you are celebrating Christmas or another holiday, you are bound to be accustomed to certain customary holiday traditions. Check out five (5) of our favourite Christmas traditions around the world. Which one is your favourite?

Little Candles’ Day (DΓ­a de las Velitas) marks the start of the Christmas season across Colombia. In honour of the Virgin Mary and the Immaculate Conception, people place candles and paper lanterns in their windows, balconies and front yards.

The tradition of candles has grown, and now entire towns and cities across the country are lit up with elaborate displays. Some of the best are found in Quimbaya, where neighbourhoods compete to see who can create the most impressive arrangement.


In wintry, wonderful Toronto the annual Cavalcade of Lights marks the official start to the holiday
season. The first Cavalcade took place in 1967 to show off Toronto’s newly constructed City Hall and Nathan Phillips Square.

The Square and Christmas tree are illuminated by more than 300,000 energy-efficient LED lights that shine from dusk until 11 pm until the New Year. On top of that, you’ll get to witness spectacular fireworks shows and engage in some outdoor ice skating.


Love Christmas, but think it could be improved by a spot of roller-blading? If the answer is yes, visit Caracas, Venezuela this year. Every Christmas Eve, the city’s residents head to church in the early morning – so far, so normal – but, for reasons known only to them, they do so on roller skates.

This unique tradition is so popular that roads across the city are closed to cars so that people can skate to church in safety, before heading home for the less-than-traditional Christmas dinner of ‘tamales’ (a wrap made out of cornmeal dough and stuffed with meat, then steamed).


The Jewish holiday of Hanukkah is celebrated with much fanfare across the United States with one of
the most elaborate events taking place on a national stage. Since 1979, a giant nine-metre Menorah has been raised on the White House grounds for the eight days and nights of Hanukkah. The ceremony in Washington, D.C. is marked with speeches, music, activities for kids, and, of course, the lighting of the Menorah.

The lighting of the first candle at the White House takes place at 4pm, rain or shine, and an additional candle is lit each successive night. The event is free to attend, but tickets must be booked in advance.


Perhaps one of the most unorthodox Christmas Eve traditions can be found in Norway, where people hide their brooms. It’s a tradition that dates back centuries to when people believed that witches and evil spirits came out on Christmas Eve looking for brooms to ride on. To this day, many people still hide their brooms in the safest place in the house to stop them from being stolen.

Today, my brother asked me if I'd seen what's going on with net neutrality? Net what? What's that? I had never heard of it until today. For those living under the rock like myself, here is something you should pay close attention to because it affects you and everything you do on the net.

In 2015, millions of activists pressured the Federal Communications Commission to adopt historic Net Neutrality rules that keep the internet free and open — allowing people to share and access information of their choosing without interference. But right now the internet is in peril. On Dec. 14, 2017, the FCC’s Republican majority approved Chairman Ajit Pai’s plan to gut the Net Neutrality protections. In other words, this is a repeal of the Obama-era net neutrality protections.

What is Net Neutrality?

Net Neutrality is the internet’s guiding principle: It preserves our right to communicate freely online. Net Neutrality means an internet that enables and protects free speech. It means that ISPs should provide us with open networks — and shouldn’t block or discriminate against any applications or content that ride over those networks. Just as your phone company shouldn’t decide who you call and what you say on that call, your ISP shouldn’t interfere with the content you view or post online.
The internet without Net Neutrality isn’t really the internet.

What will happen to the internet now?

Without the Net Neutrality rules, companies like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon will be able to call all the shots and decide which websites, content and applications succeed. These companies can now slow down their competitors’ content or block political opinions they disagree with. They can charge extra fees to the few content companies that can afford to pay for preferential treatment — relegating everyone else to a slower tier of service.

Without Net Neutrality, how will activists be able to fight oppression? What will happen to social movements like the Movement for Black Lives? How will the next disruptive technology, business or company emerge if internet service providers let only incumbents succeed?

Why is Net Neutrality important for businesses?

Net Neutrality is crucial for small business owners, startups and entrepreneurs, who rely on the open internet to launch their businesses, create markets, advertise their products and services, and reach customers. We need the open internet to foster job growth, competition and innovation.

It’s thanks to Net Neutrality that small businesses and entrepreneurs have been able to thrive online. But without Net Neutrality, ISPs will exploit their gatekeeper position and destroy the internet’s fair and level playing field. Without Net Neutrality, the next Google or Facebook will never get off the ground.

What can you do now?

Congress has the power to reverse the FCC’s vote. Urge your lawmakers to use a “resolution of disapproval” to overturn the FCC’s decision to dismantle the Net Neutrality rules.
The Trump administration is doing everything in its power to clamp down on dissent. If we lose Net Neutrality, it will have succeeded.
