‘They Call Him Timaya; “Getting Down” Higher’ – Charles Novia


Nollywood producer Charles Novia have spoken about the drama that trailed Timaya over the weekend, he published another article titled ‘They Call Him Timaya; “Getting Down” Higher’. In the article he recaps the story that had Timaya trending and explains why he thought it was a publicity stunt at first. He also adds his opinion as to why Timaya’s response was inappropriate

Read the article below.
Dancehall cum Afropop star act, Timaya, has been trending for a few days for the wrong reasons, perhaps.

A lady in Atlanta, America took to social media to accuse him of rape. Initially when I read the news on a blog, I thought it was one of some crazy publicity stunts some Nigerian artistes pull up and didn’t give it a second thought, even though I abhor anything which has to do with the violation of a woman.

United States Gave Buhari Names Of Oil Thieves

The United States of America has handed over the names of Nigerian oil thieves to President Muhammadu Buhari, a member of the President’s entourage during last week’s visit to the US confided in The PUNCH on Tuesday.

“I can tell you that the President already has the list of names of the people engaging in the stealing of Nigeria’s oil. The list, when released by the President, will shock Nigerians. But let’s wait and see first,” the source said.

The source said Buhari was taken aback when he saw the names on the list and that the list given to the President by the US might compel him to probe the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

A Presidency source also confirmed that Buhari had such a list but that “the President has been keeping the list to himself.”

The US gave Buhari two separate lists – one listing the names of top government officials who have been stealing the country’s oil, using their high offices to perpetrate the stealing; and the other containing the names of illegal oil bunkerers.

The Peoples Democratic Party has debunked claims that the ruling All Progressives Congress and one of its national leaders, Bola Tinubu, were behind the ongoing investigation of the wife of the President of the Senate, Toyin Saraki, for corruption.
