When Gbogbo Bigz Girls Eniola Badmus Beat Jenifa, Mercy Aigbe, Toyin Aimakhu to City People’s Best Actress of Year (Yoruba) Award
It was a case of giving honour to whom it is due. One of Nollywood’s most versatile actresses, Gbogbo Bigz Girlz Eniola Badmus, who acted in the hit Yoruba movie Jenifa, made the headlines yet again when she won the Best Yoruba Actress of the Year at the City People’s Entertainment Awards. The awards were held on Sunday, June 22, 2014 in Lagos.
The bulky actress, who has moved into radio with her own radio show, and is at home in both the English and Yoruba genres of the movie industry, dusted other actresses like Funke Akindele aka Jenifa, Mercy Aigbe and Toyin Aimakhu to the award, a testimony to her growing prowess in the industry. Badmus is not called Gbogbo Bigz Girlz for nothing!
Timaya, Patoranking Break and Make-up Story
It appears popular Nigerian artiste Timaya is once again cool with the fast rising dance-hall artiste Patoranking. This much can be gleaned from a recent picture and tweet by the former.
Timaya was reportedly at loggerheads with Patoranking over the latter’s decision to ditch him for another record label. Patoranking was part of Timaya’s Dem Mama crew, but the latter never actually signed Patoranking to his record label, and when a better offer came knocking, he jumped ship and signed on.
Therefore, due to Timaya’s body language and a recent interview with NET, where he uttered ‘I cannot sacrifice my career for Patoranking,’ it was generally assumed that he was unhappy with the budding act.
But recently, Timaya posted a picture of him and Patoranking at an event looking all chummy, and went ahead to call him his favorite artiste.
