Executive Jet Services releases statement on Naira Marley's flight to Abuja



Executive Jets Services has officially released a statement regarding Naira Marley and Kim Oprah flight from Lagos to Abuja. The Federal Government yesterday suspended the airline, Executive Jet Services, for flying Naira Marley to Abuja for a concert.

This was disclosed by the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, during a Presidential Task Force briefing in Abuja.

According to the Minister, the aircraft was approved to convey an Appeal Court Judge, Justice Adefope Okogie, from Lagos to Abuja.

The airline has now reacted to the development in a statement signed by Sam Iwuajoku, the Chairman/CEO of Executive Jet Services.

In the statement, Sam Iwuajoku, stated that he allowed the flight, due to a name misconception. According to him, he felt the name ‘Fashola Babatunde’ was that of the Honorable Minister of Works, and not Naira Marley.

The statement read; “We hereby apologize for the above flight, with your permit rex: FMA/ATMD/0175/V/V/ 1268 dated 11th June. 2020. Please the flight was to carry a Judge to Abuja on Sunday 14th. 2020 as requested and permit was granted based on the application, but unfortunately when I called the Judge on Saturday morning to inform him that we have the permit, he then said that he has reached Abuja already with a different flight that someone gave him a lift to Abuja. So on Saturday morning 13th June, 2020 my staff called me that they have a charter flight to Abuja and that the passengers are already in the lounge as a rule passenger manifest is always sent to me before any departure, when I went through the manifest and I saw FASHOLA BABATUNDE I thought it was the Honorable Minister of Works going to Abuja with his men, so we decided to do the flight since is a serving minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I didn’t know that it was a bunch of useless people.

We are very sorry for this mistake and we promise that this would not happen again. Kindly see attached Passenger Manifest for the flight. Thank you for your understanding.”

Mo Abudu and Netflix partnership a boost for creative industry – FG




The Federal Government has described the partnership between Nigerian filmmaker, Mo Abudu, and American streaming giant, Netflix, as a big boost for Nigeria’s creative industry.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Friday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said the partnership for on-screen adaptation of Wole Soyinka’s ‘Death and The King’s Horseman’ and Lola Shoneyin’s ‘The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives’ came at a time when the industry needed to rebound from the negative impact of the coronavirus pandemic. ”Coming after Netflix’s first Nigeria original film, Lionheart, this is a great recognition of the immense creative talents that abound in Nigeria and the provision of a global platform for Nigeria storytelling,” the minister said.

Mohammed expressed hope that the deal would herald the beginning of a bigger, mutually-beneficial working relationship between the streaming service and Nigeria’s creatives.

Solid Star sets contract agreement between him and his former record label on fire after strained relationship (video)






Solid Star sets contract agreement between him and his former record label on fire after strained relationship (video)

Nigerian singer, Solid Star has shocked his fans by setting the contract agreement he had with his former record label, Achievas Entertainment on fire.
He took to his Instagram stories to share the videos of himself burning the contract agreement two years after he left the label following their strained relationship.
Solid Star, who released two albums, ‘One In A Million’ (2010) and ‘W.E.E.D’ (2016) under the record label left in 2018.
At that time, he announced that: “I Joshua Iniyezo aka Solidstar, wish to use this opportunity to thank my former label Achievas Ent for being there for me over 10 years. Words cannot express how grateful I am, Special S/O to Ossyachievas and cole Peter my bosses, and the entire team for having my back. You are still my family even as I begin another chapter career-wise.” Responding to his announcement, the record label claimed they parted ways amicably after ten years together, but noted that all Solid Star's recording audios, music videos, remain their property.
But earlier this year, Solid Star and his former label boss, Paul Cole Chiori ( Ossy Achievas), fought dirty on Instagram.
The singer called out his former label boss, Ossy Achievas, and accused him of always wanting to see him sad.
Ossy Achievas, who also fired back at Solid Star, alleged that he did not generate 10% of the N100m he invested in his career from 2007 to 2017, a claim which the singer denied and said he actually made more than 200 million Naira for the record label.
Since leaving Achievas Entertainment, Solid Star has been operating under his own label, Shaba Entertainment.

Taylor Swift and her boyfriend, British actor and model Joe Alwyn have managed to keep their relationship from the spotlight for some time now. But on Wednesday, the 28-year-old "Delicate" singer and her 27-year-old boyfriend made their first outing of the year as they were spotted on a hike together in Malibu. The last time the duo were seen together was in December when they were pictured hand in hand after her performance at Jingle Ball in New York City. In one of the new photos, Swift can be seen holding her man close to herself as they enjoy a walk together.

follow @tatafonaija bb-23580A61



He may be in the twilight of his playing years, but the near-universal adoration heaped on David Beckham has helped him remain the highest earner in British sport, according to the Sunday Times Sport Rich List.
Boxers, golfers, racing drivers and basketball players - all fall by the wayside in the global 'brand Beckham' that has seen the 38-year-old amass a fortune of £165 million - and that is without his wife's bank balance of £35m.
Beckham's wealth, amassed from endorsement deals and salary payments from his company, Footwork Productions, over the last decade, make him easily the richest British sports star of all time, see complete list below

Bobby Brown back in Rehab

Among his many dubious claims to fame, singer Bobby Brown is the man widely credited with introducing his former wife Whitney Houston to hard drugs. 
But it seems even Whitney's death in February, which was related to her cocaine use, was not enough to halt Brown's own long history of drug and alcohol abuse.
The 43-year-old entertainer is reportedly back in rehab, less than eight weeks after his second marriage.
