Who Want To Be A Millionaire returns 

Yes, you read that right!

It was only two months ago the producers of popular TV game show, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire announced they were going on a temporal break because its telco sponsor, MTN had pulled out.

In a statement released Tuesday, producers said, “Airopay, the new sponsors of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, is a global international payments operator which “offers a secure, fast and inexpensive way to send and receive money via bank accounts and mobile wallets”.

But will Frank Edoho return as host?

 

Ycee tweets up a storm, accuses Sony Music West Africa manager of fraud

In October 2016, Ycee signed a distribution deal with Sony Music West Africa and became the third Nigerian artiste to sign with the label after Wizkid and Davido.

It all seemed rosy at the time when Sony Music West Africa’s General Manager, Michael Ugwu said, “Ycee is the future of Hip Hop in Africa and will be front and centre of SME West Africa’s strategy as we take Africa to the World.”

Barely a year into the deal and Ycee is already disappointed by the label’s treatment. He’s accused them of “milking” artistes and “raping them in silence”.

The ‘Jagaban’ singer went on a no-holds-barred Twitter rant mentioning Ugwu who tweets as @iam_magicmike all the way to make sure he misses nothing.

Ugwu is yet to respond but we’re sure we haven’t seen the end of this.
