HUMBLESMITH REVEALS HOW HE HAWKED SNACKS ON THE STREET.

Image:vanguardngr.com
After his evergreen hit single 'Osinachi' blew up the Nigerian
industry making him an overnight success, Ekene Ijemba aka Humblesmith
has disclosed a bit about his humble beginnings. Humblesmith did not
actually have it as rosy as BankyW, Falz and other Nigerian singers
from 'soft' backgrounds.
He wrote recently on one of his social media pages that at a time
he was actually hawking moi moi ( a kind of cake made from beans) on
the streets of Lagos. He said he sold the stuff 'in motor parks, bus
stands, on the road, traffic and everywhere."
The singer relocated to Lagos in 2012 from Asaba, Delta where he
had spent a few years doing menial jobs and lifting blocks. He said
that then, he was payed N20 for each block he lifted or offloaded.
Speaking further he added that after working in the block industry for
a while, he was able to set up a shop where he sold music tapes and
CDs. He was inspired to go into the business by his love for music.
"When I go on the streets of Lagos and I see
hawkers struggling to make sales in traffic, I
recall those days I used to do the same. As a
matter of fact, I hawked from when I was in
primary school until I finished secondary
school. I am grateful to God for his
benevolence," he stated.

The Ebonyi State born singer also added that he could not
continue his education up to a tertiary level because no one was there
to sponsor him. And had no other option than to slug a future out by
hustling on the streets.
Humblesmith who just signed a sumptuous deal with noodle maker
Tummy Tummy has received wide-spread airplays allover Nigeria on his
hit single-'Jukwese'. He has also launched a contest on
instagram,pending the release of the video. The contest is tagged
#JukweseContest. And the contest is inviting fans to compete by
posting videos of the suggestions for the song Jukwese. For a star
prize of $2000.
In the Nigerian Entertainment Awards(NEA), Humblesmith as been
nominated under two categories: Hottest Single of the Year-OSINACHI
and Best New Act.

ENTERTAINMENT: NIGERIAN DJ SETS WORLD RECORD.

Image:citypeopleng.com
DJ OBI has finally fulfilled his dream of putting Nigeria on the
world map by breaking the world record for the longest DJ set. DJ Obi,
a foremost DJ in Nigeria has cleared off the previous record of 200
hours on a set, so far he has been performing for over 240 hours in a
club in Lekki phase one.
The current record for the longest set ever performed by a DJ
was created in November 2014 in Dublin in Ireland. And that record set
spanned 200 hours. But days ago DJ Obi announced his intentions to
clear the record. Currently, he has gone 8 days at a stretch
performing and pounding out the beats without any break longer than
one hour.
But DJ Obi has no plans to stop yet. He has set a personal target
for himself, to go ten days on the set, and right now he's on 8+ days.
Friends and well wishers have also been there for Obi since his day
one on the quest.
So many Nigerian artistes have turned out in their numbers to
applaud the aspiring DJ including: Tiwa Savage, DJ Spinall, Praiz,M.I,
Reekado Banks,DJ Jimmy Yatt, Ycee, Timaya, Olamide,Lynxxx and many
more including members of YBNL record label.
But the going hasn't been all that smooth, as DJ as DJ has not
had sufficient sleep for more than a week. And there have been reports
of hallucinations and temporary loss of consciousness. He has been on
a heavy dose of vitamins, to supplement the lack of sleep. He has also
been on a regulated diet. And gets regular feet massage.
By rule the DJ is allowed to take some break of an hour after 12
hours on the beats or 20 minutes after four hours of performance. DJ
Obi has been mixing mostly club house jamz from different countries
and Jazz too enough to keep the crowd wild.

BACKGROUND: Obi Ajuonuma is the Son of Late Dr.Levi Chibuike a
media professional and former Group Manager of Puplic Affairs at
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation.DJ Obi has been in the
professional business. Of making people dance to some great beats for
almost a decade. He won the Nigerian Entertainment Award(NEA) for.
World's best DJ in 2011 and has worked in the studio with so many
Nigerian artists like Banky W, Lynxxx, Tuface, M.I, Flavour and a host
of others.
His role model is Sean 'Diddy' Combs, and he has met with the
hiphop American singer once. DJ Obi began his quest on wednesday last
week 22nd June 2016 at exactly 11pm at the Sao Cafe located in Lekki
phase 1, Lagos. And by 7:30am friday July 1, DJ Obi had matched the
record held by Polish DJ, Noberto Loco. A minute after, he had beaten
the record.
There are no financial incentives or rewards attached to the
record, but DJ Obi stands a chance to be included in the Guinness book
of records.

FUNNY! THIS GUYS ARE JUST GLUED TO THEIR PHONES!

...Dressing room pinging
Ezequiel Lavezzi of the Argentina national team shared the photo
above of his team mates pinging away at their phones. They sure did a
lot of shouting and celebration on the pitch, but it probably ended at
the final whistle. As the dressing looked subdued. All players seemed
more interested in updating their social network profiles than
discussing the match.even after a big win.
The pic was taken by Manchester United defender- Marcos Rojo after
4-1 trashing of Venezuela in the Copa America.
