Here are the biggest stories from yesterday and others that unraveled while you slept – and are still buzzing on today’s Entertainment Roundup.
The engagement announcement that shook Nigeria
You probably already know but this is Entertainment Roundup and the biggest stories matter.
On Wednesday morning, award-winning R&B artiste, Banky W took to his Instagram to share a story that started with how he first met Nollywood actress and his Wedding Party co-star, Adesua Etomi in 2012. He quickly went on to how their paths crossed again in 2015 and the big shock? He finished off with the sweetest surprise.
He asked her to marry him in February 2017 and the two are a couple now. In fact, their introduction is set to hold this weekend. And no, this is not a movie.
Wizkid would like to be exempted from these marriage convos…
Early on in the day, Mavin label boss, Don Jazzy jokingly weighed in on the engagement announcement asking if blogger, Linda Ikeji would like feature in a movie with him.
Last night though, Wizkid took to Twitter to congratulate the couple and was excited they finally made it public considering their close friends have had to keep their secret for a while.
A Twitter user asked Wizkid when he would take the big step and here’s what he said:
Make una chill for me small! Ahn ahn.. Me i just dey start my life o 😏 https://t.co/NnalsFuArz

He went further by adding that “he still belongs to the market” and is constantly “trying new products”:
Also on Twitter, rapper Wale put this music critic on blast and here’s why:
American-Nigerian rapper Wale whose album Shine was released few days ago had to set an American music critic, Anthony Fantano after condemning some of the songs on his album.
Not that Wale has a thin skin for criticism but Fantano ignorantly attacked all the songs on Wale’s album that featured Nigerian artistes.
Wale featured Wizkid, Major Lazer and Dua Lipa on the track My Love and Fantano assumed he copied the Carribean sound:
Here’s how Wale explained things to him:
Then Fantano had yet another opinion and Wale dropped a few Yoruba curses on him:
Is Chocolate City about to unveil a new artiste?
The question on our minds as Chairman of Chocolate City music label, MI Abaga shared a video chronicling the artistes that have been signed on the label since inception.
The video ended off with a question, “Guess Who?”
We’ll wait for the big reveal.
