ENTERTAINMENT: Jazz legend Hugh Masekela dies

ENTERTAINMENT: Jazz legend Hugh Masekela dies


Legendary trumpeter and anti-apartheid activist, Hugh Masekela died on Tuesday, aged 78.

In a statement, his family said ‘Father of South African jazz’ “passed peacefully” in Johannesburg “after a protracted and courageous battle with prostate cancer.”



They described him as “a loving father, brother, grandfather and friend” who would be “forever in our hearts.”

They said details of his memorial and burial services would be released later.

Masekela who was given his first trumpet when he was 14 used his ‘Soweto Blues’ to confront apartheid.

South African President Jacob Zuma said Masekela’s death was “an immeasurable loss to the music industry and to the country at large” and said: “His contribution to the struggle for liberation will never be forgotten.”

Affectionately called ‘Bra Hugh’, Masekela was born in the South African town of Witbank in 1939. He was inspired to learn the trumpet after seeing Kirk Douglas play Bix Beiderbecke in the 1950 film Young Man with a Horn.

He persuaded one of his teachers – the anti-apartheid crusader Father Trevor Huddleston – to buy him an instrument, promising to stay out of trouble in return.

In 1960, aged 21, he left South Africa to begin what would be 30 years in exile from the land of his birth.

Under the tutelage of Dizzy Gillespie and Louis Armstrong, he was encouraged to develop his own unique style. And in 1967, he performed at the Monterey Pop Festival alongside Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, Ravi Shankar, The Who and Jimi Hendrix.

The following year, his instrumental single, ‘Grazing in the Grass,’ topped the charts in the US and became a worldwide hit.

In the 1970s, Mr. Masekela toured sub-Sarahan Africa and began a partnership with the Nigerian musician Fela Kuti, who had recently pioneered the genre known as Afrobeat. He also worked with the exiled South African saxophonist Dudu Pukwana and began fronting the Ghanaian group Hedzoleh Soundz.

Masekela returned to South Africa in 1990 following the release of Nelson Mandela, whose freedom he had called for in his 1986 anthem Bring Home Nelson Mandela.

In June 2010, he performed at both the opening concert of the Fifa World Cup and the tournament’s opening ceremony in Soweto’s Soccer City with Femi Kuti.

Reacting to the legend’s passing, Femi Kuti posted a picture of both of them at the event and captioned it ‘Good memories RIP Mr. Hugh.’

Masekela was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in 2008 and in the last months of his life campaigned that men should go for regular cancer check-ups.

ENTERTAINMENT: How hackers uploaded Funke Akindele’s photo as Avenger’s cast – Freeze
Controversial media personality, Daddy Freeze, and Actress Tonto Dikeh have reacted to report that popular actress, Funke Akindele’s name has been removed from the cast list of coming superhero movie, Avengers: Infinity War.


It was reported that Akindele’s name was published on the popular movie review website, IMDB, where it revealed she would act alongside international movie stars, Robert Downey Jr and Chris Hemsworth, in Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity Wars.

Reacting to the news, Freeze and Tonto Dikeh expressed disappointments that Funke’s name was removed. They prayed that the incident paves way for her in the international scene.

Freeze wrote, ”Apparently, Funke Akindele was not billed to be a part of the latest #Avengers Infinity. The latest gist is that her pic was put there by a hacker.

”If only Marvel studios knew what the hacker had done for them, they would have found him paid him and quickly contacted @funkejenifaakindele, found a role for her, shot her along with the cast and with the publicity and sales in Africa alone, possibly doubled their income.

”I was heartbroken when I saw that she was taken off the list.”

Similarly, Tonto Dikeh wrote,”Sad, was so happy) well, she is our Star and we love her regardless..it will happen, this just paved the way. I sense it.”

ENTERTAINMENT: I fall sick every December- 9ice
For decades, Living Things crooner, Abolore Adigun, better known as ‘9ice’ has been making waves on the Nigerian music scene and he is not ready to leave the stage anytime soon like traditional rulers who could be on the throne for decades until death separates them from it.


In a chat with Showtime,  the self-styled ‘Ancestor’ who recently took to social media to wish his first son, Zion, a speedy recovery from an undisclosed ailment, explained to Showtime how he falls sick every December and his son, Zion, took after him, which is why he was also sick last December.

He said; “I fall sick every December and I think the boy is just like me; he’s my carbon copy and he is experiencing everything I’ve gone through in life. I recently noticed it and confirmed that it is hereditary. Funny thing is he would be sick but nothing will happen to him. If I ask him what exactly is wrong with him, he would say nothing; then I would ask him why is he sick but he would say I shouldn’t worry that he’s fine. That’s exactly what happens to me every December, so it’s a normal thing.”

On how he was able to bounce back after a prolonged hiatus from the music scene, he boasted of being an idol that can never lose its divine powers.”An ancestor is different from an Alhaji; we see many Alhajis every year but an ancestor remains. You can either be a Muslim or a Christian but you must have an idol you worship in your house as a traditionalist. I’m a household idol and that’s how God has created it”, he boasted.

Speaking on the recent reunion between warring pop stars, Wizkid and Davido, he expressed excitement, saying  “I was very happy when I heard of it, I said finally we can come together and unite.

Just like we had a king in England, we also had a king in France. The sky is wide enough for everyone to fly without disturbing one another. I’m so happy for them”.

ENTERTAINMENT: Davido in fresh controversy as aide beats up airport security officials

ENTERTAINMENT: Davido in fresh controversy as aide beats up airport security officials


Security agencies at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos have impounded 17 check-in luggage belonging to musician David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido in the Nigerian entertainment industry.


The seizure followed an alleged attack by one of the musician’s aides on Aviation Security (AVSEC), Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) and Checkport personnel at the airport upon his arrival from a foreign trip on Thursday evening.

It was gathered that trouble started when Checkport staff at the baggage reclaim area attempted to verify whether the tags on Davido’s luggage corresponded with the reclaimed luggage.

But, the enquiry of the personnel did not go down well with one of Davido’s aides who refused to tender the tags and resorted to abusive words against the staff.

What followed,according to sources,was a punch in the face on a Checkport staff by the aide.

A Customs personnel who rushed to the scene also got punched in the face by the aide.

The situation soon degenerated and the security personnel called for reinforcement.

The aide was overpowered and was then taken to ‘Tango City’ a secluded at the airport where unruly passengers and touts are kept by security agencies.

At ‘Tango City’ the aide reportedly continued his attack on two AVSEC personnel, one of them a female lady who was writing her report, and the other,a Customs official who was injured on his wrist.

It was at this point that the attention of Davido who was already outside the terminal awaiting the collection of his luggage from his aide was called to the terminal incident.

Attempt by Davido to get his luggage released was rebuffed by security agents who insisted on taking the detained aide to Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Panti , Lagos.

The 17 seized luggage were still at the airport yesterday while effort was being made to transfer the aide to CID, Panti.

The source close to the scene of the incident said: “Davido had arrived Lagos Airport as usual with about 17 luggage in all. The rule is that whenever you arrive, you are expected to release your tags to the Checkport staff for confirmation and verification, but rather than comply with the simple rule, one of his aides insisted he won’t allow them to check the tags.

“But, unfortunately, this aide refused to be checked and rather than obey the simple civil aviation rule, he resorted to attacks on everybody. He attacked no fewer than four officials with at least two of them soaked in blood.”

General Manager, Public Affairs , Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) Mrs Henrietta Yakubu confirmed the incident yesterday.
