Al-Qaeda, Al-Shabab are helping Boko Haram — Rawlins, American security expert

What I would say is that it has got to the point where Boko Haram is killing people because Boko Haram is now proving a point that it can kill and get away with it. It has gone beyond religion, politics and ideology. It is a belief: ‘I can kill people and I can get away with it and let me show you I can do it.’ That is what it is now. It is a showman thing. I know most people won’t think of that because they always believe it is religious or political.

I use ‘polite insult’ on randy men — Morenikeji

The music industry provides a level playing ground for musicians irrespective of gender. A lot of musicians, male or female, have attained stardom doing what they know how to do best while a larger number still languished at the bottom of the success ladder. Some have been quite lucky hitting stardom with their debut effort while many others wait till after releasing about two to three albums before limelight beams their way.
