Police have confirmed numerous fatalities and over 50 wounded at an Ariana Grande gig late on Monday night, with Manchester City among the mourners

At least 19 people have been confirmed as killed in a suspected terror attack in Manchester, UK, late on Monday night, and the football world has begun to mourn the tragic loss of life.

In addition to numerous fatalities, police claim over 50 people were injured when an explosion hit outside the Manchester Arena following an Ariana Grande gig.



Indecision really is quite something. Namely, the absolutely the bane of my life. Want to know whether to wear a dress or jeans? Don’t ask me, the only thing I am sure of of is you’ll never get a clear answer. Did I like the film? Yes, probably, I think so… What do you think?  Ultimately if you’re ever in a life or death situation where someone has to make a quick decision for you (why you are in this predicament we can only wonder) do not count on me. I’ll make no decision which is normally the wrong decision and you’ll be dead for your poor judgement in believing I could help. You could probably argue it’s my fault your dead but is it really? I couldn’t agree or disagree, I can’t decide. 

I imagine this behaviour makes me the worst date in the world, you’d probably have already moved on and married someone before I’ve decided on what starter to have. Praise to the mighty heavens for having already met a man who has the patience of a saint. Is this behaviour I can change? I really do not know. Maybe it is, maybe it is a case of nurture that I can break from, but then again maybe it’s nature and in my DNA…hmm… 
This somewhat tidal wave of a character flaw makes life very hard, especially when you’re supposed to be a happy go lucky traveller. While my partner is a step ahead on the decision making game, I wouldn’t recommend him as a go to guy for a snappy if you needed to know whether to turn left or right, which makes us planning our next adventure near impossible. 
How big is the world?! How can you decide where to go when they’re are so many wonderful options to choose from?! Heading to Australia was a pretty easy call because I didn’t venture into the possibility of trying anywhere else. It all just kind of happened. Now I’m here and nearing the time to move on, and I am forever plagued with thoughts of where I’ll have more fun, where is more cost effective and where am I least likely to get lost to the point I never find my way back and essentially drop of the face of the earth. Having said that I could probably get myself as lost in local supermarket, so maybe that’s unavoidable.  
As irritating as this inability to make a judgement on pretty much anything is, it is really a positive thing. I plagued with so many options in life I simply can’t make my mind up about most. The world is at our millennial fingertips in a way it hasn’t been to generations before us, which ultimately is a good thing, right? Or at least that’s what I tell myself when I realise I have no idea what the hell I want to do with my life. It’s working for now…I think.       



By people even those who claim to be well EDUCATED, RICHER or MORE POWERFUL 

I’m not mad at them cos I’ve come to understand that its not their fault, they just don’t know everything. They don’t know that we all are unique in a way only God understands. 

They also don’t know that Education doesn’t define wisdom. 

WISDOM; the body of knowledge and experience that develops within a specified society or period.

WISDOM is knowing u don’t know everything which make u always want to learn, even if u have to learn from who doesn’t know anything that way u learn how not to do some things. 

EDUCATION; is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits. 

EDUCATION is getting thought or trained in a specified field for only a period of time. “Education is power” like they say…but we all know POWER DOESN’T SOLVE ALL PROBLEM.

POWER; the capacity or ability to direct or influence the behaviour of others or the course of events.

POWER doesn’t guarantee victory u remember the story of David & Goliath? And I guess that is why its said in the Bible that “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.”
(Proverbs 4:7 KJV)

If anyone does anything u don’t like or understand ask questions and listen to what he/she has to say, it doesn’t matter who/where its coming from even if the person is wrong if u’re.. wise u must have learnt something.

I’ve learnt a lot from people who doesn’t listen to what I have to say sometimes because they think they re better, richer or more educated & I see em making that mistake ill never want to make. 

I’ve learnt that thinking u know everything make people even worse than an infidel. 

I’ve learnt that u can never understand everybody until u choose to walk in their shoes. 

And most of all I’VE LEARNT A PERSON ILL NEVER WANT TO BE….. so help me God!..

Yours Faithfully

With lots of emotion attached to the soulful news about the death of a Nigeria ACE Producer OJB JEZREEL, Paul Runz another popular producer talked about his encounter with OJB. Read what he says..

He was my industry mate kind of, But I respect him he’s a legend. We meet in year 2000 in the studio, then I was in a music group “ZIP” and I was building my music production skills with Nelson Brown and Foster Zeeno. OJB was cool and a good music creator then still huzling working to make a breakthrough. He came to the studio; I think if I can remember to work on Something for X-Appeal a music duo (Lexy doo and Jazzman Olofin).
In 2004 I and OJB ,Cohbams worked on Faze’s first album (Independent) it was an experience which expose my production skills. OJB mega hit was African Queen by Tuface Idibia that same year the song was a hit.
Since then we’ve been involved in various projects. He’s humble and not working to out shine when we work together, most times he will even assist you in your own job. In 2007 I Cohbams and OJB worked on the “Jewels Band” the star quest winners that year and that was the last project we did together. But we maintained our relationship, we meet in events, visiting and he always say yes if I needed his help.
I visited him in 2013 we discussed the problems of the music industry of today, he has a template that can better the industry at large.
OJB IS A LEGEND and apart from Nelson Brown, OJB has discovered and brought out stars and hits than any other producers in the country. He is the foundation of new generation R&B and Hiphop music in nigeria. I give it to him, may God bless your soul brother. RIP OJB.



OJB JEZREEL as he’s profoundly called died earlier today after brief illness. OJB suffered organ failure a few years back and was flown out of the country all the way to India for a transplant which was successfully done. But news reaching us today says that cause of death still related to the initial ailments.

OJB JEZREEL was a friend, brother and mentor of some of us at BIE NAIJA so we use this opportunity to pray for his family that the Almighty God give them the furtitude to bear the loss AND MAY THE ALMIGHTY GOD STAY WITH HIS CHILDREN!.. Amen.. RIP OJB
