Five Albums From Nigerian Artists To Expect In August 2020

2020 have seen a sizable numbers of albums and EPs from various Nigerian Artists but we agree it could have been more than that.

For about 3 – 4 months, almost all sectors of the world were placed on standby. All thanks to the Coronavirus.

The entertainment industry was not left out as many albums were delayed for this particular reason or based on artist’s discretion.

But in the last one month, a lot have been returning to its formal state. Not fully, but there is improvements.

On that note, there are several albums we would be anticipating. In no serial order, they are:

1. Wizkid – Made in Lagos

Wizkid – Made in Lagos

Wizkid FC have been anticipating for this one for quite some time. We already have a single, ‘Smile’ and with Wizkid thinking of dropping another one of Friday, we can only expect the album to be out in August.

2. Burna Boy – Twice as Tall

Although we do not have much info on this album, we expect that Burna Boy doesn’t delay with it.

3. Davido – A Better Time

Davido – A Better Time
He’s been working tirelessly for it. He recently did a video shoot in USA with Lil Baby. This goes to prove that the album is on its way. He already promised July but we now see it it will no longer be possible as July has seen its end.

4. Patoranking – Three
Patoranking – Three

Patoranking has confirmed the release of this album so this is not just a prediction. The artist has announced that his album, ‘Three’ will be dropping on August 28th. He also dropped a single, Abule, in anticipation for it.

5. Tiwa Savage – Celia

Fraud Case Against Woodberry Dismissed By U.S. Court

The inability of the United States government to prove the fraud allegations on Woodberry has led to his case being dismissed in court.

Mr Olalekan Ponle, popularly known as Woodberry , a Nigerian accused of multi-million dollar wire f r a u d.

Recall we reported the arrest of Woodberry and Ramon Abbas alias Hushpuppi in the UAE on June 10. The duo where nabbed by the Dubai police for multiple frauud charges and was extradited to the United States FBI for prosecution.

 

The 29-year-old was facing charges bordering on wire fraud conspiracy at a United States District Court in Illinois.

Today, there are reports that the case against the Nigerian has been dismissed. The eight count charge was set aside after the United States government on Monday filed a motion through its attorney, John R. Lausch, requesting that the case against Mr Ponle should be dismissed without prejudice.

“Counsel for the government has spoken with counsel for the defendant and defendant’s
counsel has no objection to this motion.

A court order issued by Judge Robert W. Gettleman on Tuesday, said the government’s motion to dismiss complaint without prejudice was granted.

“Without objection the complaint against defendant Ponle is dismissed without prejudice. Motion presentment hearing set for 7/23/2020 is stricken,” Mr Gettleman ruled.

Senate tells FG to raise age limit for job seekers

The Nigerian Senate has urged the federal government to raise the age limit attached to job vacancies in the country.

The lawmakers made the demand on Wednesday, July 15, following a motion raised by Senator Ibrahim Gobir during plenary.

During the debate on the motion titled urgent need to review age barrier during recruitment and employment, Gobir argued that the age cap for jobs advertised by both government and private sector excludes many competent applicants.

He pointed out that many graduates who spend about 10 years or more seeking jobs are often excluded from employment applications due to no fault of theirs.

The senator said many of such individuals have now resorted to falsifying age to fall within the age limit for them to be gainfully employed.

Another lawmaker, Senator Bala Ibn Na’Allah, questioned why the federal government which had placed embargo on its employment for over 13 years would expect graduates to remain at the age they were during the period of the embargo.

After deliberations, the Senate president, Ahmad Lawan, urged the ministry of labour, employment and productivity to address the matter.
