Reacting to the uproar on her Instagram post, Lawani described her critics as “hypocrites”

She went ahead to state categorically, that she will not apologize to anyone for her outfit.

Lawani said, “This message is to tell you all that you no get sense, not an explanation. Honestly, Nigerians have refused to be liberated when it comes to fashion and depicting themes.

“When will you get it into your empty skulls that costumes can carry crucifix and doesn’t mean its a sign of disrespect?

“People dress like sexy nuns all day, for all sorts of events and halloween… yet, you’re all on my page crying and wailing like I killed someone in your family just because I’m Nigerian but if It’s Kim or your RiRi or Beyoncé now, you will be hearing ‘awwn, so hot, my role model.

“Bloody hypocrites but behind closed door you’re all disgusting and doing nasty shit. Even you pastors who come on here to preach, na una f**k your ushers and church members pass…most of you are so way back.”

Lawani noted many Nigerians have been “blindfolded” by religious inclinations and lack of exposure that they can’t recognise works of art.

“Your lack of exposure is really disturbing you lots, you don’t even know what art is when you see it. I learnt fashion internationally, break fashion boundaries and I’m a risk taker.

“You will never be able to understand me cause I will always stay true to what I love and will never do anything to please anyone but myself,”

“If you are expecting that apology you are preaching on my page from me you will be waiting till eternity, take your frustrations to the blogs, but when you come to my page, I will give you your size.

“By now I felt your brains should have told you that I’m not your basic fellow Nigerian and I do not follow the rules of your society.

“I make my own rules, doesn’t mean any of you are holier than I am or better human beings than me.

“All the parasites infesting Nigeria and spoiling the youths currently, you haven’t done anything about that it’s my outfit that’s your headache yet you promote those nasty acts daily.”

Published

on

Nollywood actress and director, Genevieve Nnaji, will star in an audio adaptation of the Broadway musical ‘FELA’ which will premiere on the Clubhouse app this weekend.

The audio adaptation on Clubhouse termed ‘Fela Ten-Twenty’ will portray the “#EndSARS movement in the context of Fela Kuti’s legacy,” Fela Ten-Twenty director/producer, Funa Maduka, told CNN.

The ‘Ten-Twenty’ signifies the date #EndSARS protesters were reportedly shot at the Lekki Toll Gate on October 10, 2020.

“Fela’s music… demanded global engagement with African political thought. In the aftermath of the October 2020 #EndSars protests … his message still achingly resounds. This production is a love letter to those fighting for a better Nigeria,” said Maduka.

The organisers further revealed that Nnaji will star as one of the ‘Kalakuta Queens’, representing the musician’s dancers in Fela Ten-Twenty.

“I grew up on radio plays and the experience is nostalgic for me – the power of voice to influence minds and touch hearts is undeniable.”

According to Maduka, part of the proceeds from the show on Clubhouse on May 15th and 16th will go to the GEANCO Foundation and will be used to provide scholarship to young female victims of terrorism and gender inequality.

Published

on

Popular Nigerian singer, Chidinma Ekile, has announced her switch to full-time gospel ministration, saying she regrets `wasting’ so much time doing secular music.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, the singer turned actress stated that “the devil has been winning too long.”

She said, “Our God is faithful; He never lies and He does whatever He says. So, I’m here today. It’s been a long journey. I had an opportunity to spend time with Him; it’s a rare privilege to spend time with Him and He told me a lot of things and He said He has been waiting for me.”

The songstress made it known that she is not going into gospel music for the fame as she has had “enough of all of that”. 

“God has been very intentional about me. He is very mindful of me. I’m not here because I want fame. I’ve had all of that and I think I’ve had enough of all of that. So, right now is the time to work for my Father. He is the one who has called me I did not bring myself here. As a matter of fact, I did not want to be here, but I’m going into ministry in full force,” Chidinma stated.

She added, “So, most of you might not understand my ways because you don’t know where I’m coming from, and that is because a lot of time has been wasted. So, I need to catch up with time. I’m moving with time, there is no time. The enemy has been winning for too long. I’ve had my share of influence and all of that, but now I’m using all of that.

“Everything the enemy thought he had given to me though was given to me by God, while he was lying that he gave them to me. Now I’m using all of that to work for my father. So, when you see me doing some very extreme things, just understand where I’m coming from, there is no time. 

“There are too many people out there we have to bring back into the house. Jesus is coming soon; sooner than you expect. So, we cannot allow them to miss out on that. Now is the time to do the work.”

Chidinma is currently signed on with the Eezee concept and has released her first gospel song titled: “Jehovah overdo.”
