Dr Sid rubbishes D'banj's accusations on Mo'hit split

Dr Sid has come out to refute claims by D’banj which said he was responsible for the breakup of Mo’Hits.

D’Banj had gone on a video interview to categorically say Sid broke the group and label.
The Mavin Singer has been studying for his filmmaking badges at the New York Film Academy.
He was a recent guest on Bouqui’s Place, a radio show on Rhema House Radio, Los Angeles, anchored by popular Nigerian Gospel Female rapper, Bouqui, and there he declared his innocence.
On the show, a caller called in to ask Dr Sid to respond to D’banj’s claims, and he said: “Obviously there’s a lot of people involved, so there are some things I can’t talk about, but in general, with every beautiful things in life, there are circles, things start and things end.”
“Mo’hits was one of the most beautiful experiences I’ve ever had, it’s one of the things that took my career to the next level, and I appreciate every single moment I had in there, things happened, we grew older, and we grew apart, and glory be to God, every single person that was on Mo’hits records is doing well today, and that’s life in general.”
“With regards to someone saying that I am the cause, I just would ask any individual in their right mind to literally think how I can tell a Don Jazzy and D’banj that have been making millions together to break up. It’s not even remotely possible or remotely true.”
“Like I told Bouqui earlier on, I am a team player, I think of the team first before myself, and that’s how I’ve always been in Mo’hits till the end. I fought for the team, and now in Mavin I’m fighting for the team, and I will always fight for the team.”

FFK Releases Statement; Says PDP Is Winning In 23 States

PDP Presidential campaign organizer, Chief Femi Fani Kayode held a press conference today and below is the text from the conference….Read with patience.
We are deeply concerned by the level of disinformation and falsehood that is being peddled around by the friends of the opposition in the media and particularly their paid agents and associates on the social media about the results of Saturdays elections. Since yesterday afternoon they have been releasing fake results and they have been attempting to mislead the Nigerian people and our friends in the international community.  The public have been inundated with lie after lie about the APC’s so-called victories in virtually every single polling booth, ward, local government area and state in the country. This is not only nonsensical but it is also far-fetched, absurd and childish.
Two opposition media houses and their associates in the social media went as far as to shamelessly claim that President Goodluck Jonathan lost in my polling unit and in my ward in Ile-Ife, when in actual fact the President not only won in my polling booth and ward but he also won in virtually every other ward in the four local government areas of Ile Ife in Osun state where I come from.
The dirty lies that these two media houses have told is just one example of the gross and irresponsible mendacities and falsehood that the agents and associates of the APC habitually enjoy peddling. As we have always said, they are a party of liars that are led and inspired by a small cabalistic cult of shameful deceivers, liars and cheap propaganda merchants. In them there is no truth and lying is their second nature and natural habitat.
The APC, through their agents in the media, also indulged in many other fanciful and vain mendacities about many other PDP leaders.  For example they claimed that Senator Musiliu Obanikoro who is presently the Honorable Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Senator Iyiola Omisore, the leader of our party in Osun state, Governor Olusegun Mimiko, the Governor of Ondo state, Senator David Mark, the Senate President, and so many other of our highly esteemed and respected leaders also lost their polling units and wards to General Muhammadu Buhari and the APC candidates for the various elections.
Needless to say these claims by the APC are not only false but they are also absurd and nauseating. Such mendacities are indicative of the fact that they have lost touch with reality as we have always suspected. As a matter of fact we are surprised that they didn’t claim that the President himself also lost in his polling unit and  ward and that he in fact voted for Buhari rather than for himself. Such is their level of depravity and deceit that they will manufacture any lie and assert any falsehood just to gain an edge and feed their vain delusions.
The lies they have told about the so-called victory of Buhari in Ile Ife, Osun state is particularly distasteful because not only has Jonathan appeared to have won in Ile-Ife but our PDP candidate for the Federal House of Representatives in that constituency, Mr. Albert Adeogun, appears to have won the election hands down and defeated Mr. Rotimi Makinde of the APC, who is the sitting member of the Federal House of Representatives. Our candidate for the House of Representatives in Ilesa in the same senatorial district, Mr. Wole Oke, appears to have won his election as well which is another major blow for the APC in Osun state.
Instead of acknowledging these monumental and devastating losses of some of their leading members, the APC, in their habitual manner simply continue to bury their small heads in the ground like the proverbial ostrich, live in denial and peddle lies and falsehood. It is time that they were called to order. The lies of the APC must be ignored and treated with the contempt and disdain that they deserve.
The reports that we are getting from the field is that our candidate is doing very well in the south and north central and that we are making very strong inroads into various states in the core north. The motive for the lies and disinformation of the APC is to create high expectations for their supporters so that when the real results come out and they are announced by INEC, and when those real results do not tally with the fake results that the APC have told their agents and friends to release, they will begin to run riot, create havoc and kill people.
This is irresponsible and dangerous and we hereby warn the APC and their agents in the media to stop spreading falsehood and telling dangerous lies. We also call on the security agencies to be vigilant because when the truth of their defeat finally dawns on them the APC and Buhari will not take it very lightly. We should all patiently wait for INEC to release the official results of all the elections and until then we call on our supporters and party members to hold their heads up high, to remain confident and strong and to hold their peace.
Though it is undoubtedly a close race we at the PDPCO are cautiously confident and we are very optimistic of total victory despite the desperation, lies and disinformation of the APC. At the end of the day we have no doubt that President Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP shall prevail.
We are constrained to conclude this short briefing by commenting on two issues that are also a matter of grave concern to us. First of all it has been brought to our attention that hundreds of thousands of underage voters were allowed to vote by INEC officials in many parts of the north during Saturday’s elections.
The pictures of these underage voters, who are APC supporters and many of whom are not even Nigerians but were drafted across our northern borders just to vote, are all over the internet. These pictures show the children actually giving their thumb prints and voting in the elections on Saturday. This is unacceptable to us and it needs to be explained by INEC. We await further clarification from them about it and failing that we shall revisit the issue in a very forceful and precise manner at a later stage.
The other area that needs clarification and an explanation from INEC and which gives us deep concern is the situation that we have found ourselves in when it comes to the issue of card readers. We warned about this right from the outset and we expressed our reservations about their usage but we were ignored and even criticised by many at the time for doing so. With the shameful and abysmal performance of the card readers during Saturday’s polls we believe that we have been vindicated and that our earlier concerns have proved to be legitimate and valid. Sadly the damage that the failure of the  card readers has caused to the fortunes of our supporters and party is immense.
Many of our supporters were disenfranchised and were unable to get accreditation or to vote as a consequence of the card reader situation and it is curious that most of the problems associated with card readers only took place in areas and states that are the traditional strongholds of President Jonathan and the PDP. Was this a mere coincidence or was it contrived?  That is the million dollar question. We shall speak more about this and other matters after the final results have  been announced by INEC. Until then we shall hold our peace.

We use this medium to call on our friends in the social media, the party faithful and all President Goodluck Joanthan Support Groups not to remain silent in the face of these shenanigans. They should speak out on what they know about the propaganda and falsehood of the opposition APC. They should not be intimidated at all by the opposition’s desperate and reprehensible antics. They should set the record straight and not allow themselves to be robbed of a well-earned victory.

As we speak now, we are winning in 23 states and we have 64 percent while the APC is winning in 14 states and has 36 percent.  
These results are subject to confirmation by the Independent National Electoral Commission.  However, we are certain of what we are saying because we have information from our agents in every polling unit nationwide.  No one must test our will by attempting to change these results and the APC should desist from pushing this nation to the brink of fire, chaos and destruction with their dirty lies and propaganda.
Thank you.

Karrueche Tran Admits She Still Loves Chris Brown, But Insists "There's No Making Up" After Baby Drama

It's no secret that Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran's relationship hasn't been a smooth one.
For four years, the pair has been on and off and then on again leaving fans confused and even annoyed at their rocky and ever changing relationship status.
But while talking to Iyanla Vanzant in an Oprah Winfrey Network exclusive interview Saturday night, the young model finally decided to come clean and reveal what's really going down with her and her "ex-boyfriend."
"I feel hurt because the man I loved betrayed me. I will never again let a man disrespect me," she told Vanzant through tears. "I want my voice to be heard…I want to clear it up and tell my story and tell my side."
The model admitted to knowing Brown wasn't your average guy when he asked her to "hang out" at a Norms restaurant on their first date. However, the fame and limelight wasn't what immediately got her excited about the possible relationship.
"I saw a different side of Chris that not everybody sees. Although he's done whatever he's done, he's a good-hearted person," she shared. "He's a big kid with a big heart that's been through some things."
But as the months and years went by, Tran admitted that her man lied, cheated and betrayed her on more than one occasion. Most recently, it was when she found out Brown had a baby with another woman. 
"He's said he's sorry. He's dropped flowers off. He's sorry for what he's put me through," she recalled after finding out about the baby news on social media. There's no making up right now. I'm trying to be my strongest. I understand what he's put me through and I'm fed up."
But at the same time, Tran knows that there will always be a special place in her heart for the famous rapper.
"I still love him. I've changed to help him—go to church, pray, yoga, meditate—if he were to change, we would be in a better place, but that's the problem," she explained. He did give me love. Maybe it wasn't the right love or the same level but he's a product of his environment growing up. There's no doubt in my mind that Chris loves me. I know he does."

PDP Raises Alarm, Says APC Posting Fake Results Online

PDP has charged Nigerians to disregard the figures being circulated in the social media as results of the Presidential and National Assembly elections in some polling booths.
The ruling party claimed the controversial results were being posted online by the opposition,APC.

The PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, gave the warning in a press statement issued in Abuja.
Metuh pointed out that the figures were “fake and do not represent the true results which are currently being collated by INEC, the only body authorized to release and announce results”.
“The APC, in its desperation for power, has resorted to posting fake results in the social media in a bid to ambush the electoral commission, mislead the unsuspecting public to believe it is winning, all in furtherance of its grand plot to cause confusion and set the stage for violence when the authentic results are finally released.”

Nigeria Decides: Jonathan says only Jega can explain failure of Card Readers

President Goodluck Jonathan says only the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof. Attahiru Jega, can explain the failure that attended the voter card readers in several parts of the country during Saturday’s presidential and parliamentary elections.
The President, who was responding to questions from newsmen after casting his vote in Otuoke, Bayelsa State, however, noted that he would not blame Jega for noticeable lapses in the electoral process as government is a whole institution of which INEC is only a component.
“INEC wants to use the card readers to make sure that our electoral process is credible and acceptable by international observers. Somehow, being the first time we are practising with the card readers, there have been some issues in some units, but please bear with them. I believe at the end of the day, we all will be happy.”
“The only thing is that some people must have stayed there longer than necessary, but I still plead with them that even if they spend 24 hours for the sake of this country, they should bear with us.
 “I’m not putting blame on INEC, the government is one. I don’t blame INEC, judiciary, police, soldiers and executives. I am the president of the country. As a nation, we have different departments that handle responsibility. The issue of elections is INEC’s exclusive responsibility and nobody will speak for them. Even if I have some information, I cannot speak for INEC. Jega is the only one that can speak for INEC. I speak for the federal government.”
