I got a call sometime ago from a Nigerian based in the United States.The person told me he loves the way we focus on celebrities.He also told me that every aspect of a celebrity lifestyle is a news.For over 2 hours I was being lectured on how the socks a Micheal Jackson is wearing or a puppy owned by a Beyonce would be accorded a star status just because of the owner.The person whom I wouldn't want to mention his name says it is rather unfortunate that some people only think that its only when a celebrity is engaged in a monumental sex scandal that it becomes news worthy.

Well,lets leave it at that.One of the hottest gist around town is the forthcoming hip hop world award on Saturday 15 March 2008 at Planet One,Ikeja-Lagos.Nigerian celebrities would try as much as possible to outshine one another on the 'yellow carpet' (Its Yello'because MTN is a major sponsor of the event).

I got accross to Dapo Oyebanjo popularly known as D'banj and he told me that he would be wearing a suit made by Nigerian based Okunoren Twins.Kehinde, one of the Okunoren twins told me that they are up to the task.He boasted that all the 'kokolets' would definately give D'banj a second look because of the designer suit.He also told that the cost of the suit is about N150,000.
