Singer Davido’s elder brother, Adewale Adeleke showed off the venue of the forthcoming wedding of him and his fiancee Adekani. The entertainment mogul with the Instagram name Chairmanhkn, took to his Instagram handle to show fans the beautiful venue for their wedding. Recall that he had earlier proposed to Adekani this year. This is happening just a few days after the naming ceremony of Davido and Chioma’s child’s dedication which held in London. 

It is such a celebration period in the lives of the Adelekes. First, it was Davido and Chioma’s engagement. Then the birth of their son, Ifeanyi Adeleke. Now, the older Adeleke and his beautiful bride-to-be are set to exchange vows. From his post, the venue of the wedding will be at the famed Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi, United Arabs Emirates.

The Adelekes always have the right degree of pomp in their events and celebrations. A wedding at the Emirates Palace costs about 120,000 dirhams, that is around 32,000 USD. During Davido’s son’s dedication, the singer donned the expensive Cartier Iced Out Glasses which is sold a whopping $12,000, approximately N4.5 million. A few days ago, the singer posted a picture of an expensive-looking Richard Mille watch and captioned it “it hurt my account but I had to do it..”. Luxury is a legacy for the Adeleke family. So, it was not surprising to see Adewale Adeleke settle for the expensive Emirates Palace for his wedding.

Though the date of the wedding is not known yet, we assume it is very close. Davido had also announced his own wedding to be in 2020. Nigerians surely cannot wait!

Burna Boy promises to donate part of proceeds from South Africa show to Xenophobic attack victims.

Burna Boy has indicated his readiness to perform in South Africa and donate part of the proceeds to victims of the xenophobic attack.

Months after weighing in on xenophobic attacks in South Africa, Burna Boy has confirmed his preparedness to perform in the country.

In a recent tweet, Burna Boy noted that the show, which is tagged Africans Unite, will be the first of many.

The African Giant singer also hinted that he will be donating part of the proceeds from the show to victims of xenophobic attacks in the country.

Part of the proceeds will be donated to the victims of Xenophobic attacks by me!” Burna Boy’s statement said in parts.

On Wednesday, October 23, 2019, a South African online platform reported that Burna Boy will be in South Africa for a concert.

In September, Burna Boy had weighed in on the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa vowing not to step in the country again.

The ‘African Giant’ further narrated how he suffered a Xenophobic attack in 2017 and had since refused to return to the Nelson Mandela country.

Oscar Academy disqualifies Nigeria’s Lionheart over English dialogue

With Lionheart’s disqualification, the numbers of movies nominated for the award has been reduced to 92

Oscar Academy disqualifies Nigeria’s Lionheart over English dialogue

Genevieve Nnaji’s directorial debut, “Lionheart” has been disqualified from the list of the movies nominated for the Best International Feature Film category in the Oscar Awards. The reason the movie was dropped was that it has too many dialogues in English.

This is because the Academy’s criterion for Best International Feature Film category is that the award is for movies made outside the United States of America with a predominantly non-English dialogue.

With Lionheart’s disqualification, the numbers of movies nominated for the award has been reduced to 92. Also, the disqualification reduced the number of female directors in the category to 28. The movie which was scheduled to screen for the Academy voters in the international category on Wednesday was announced to voters to have been disqualified via an email on Monday.

The decision by Oscar caused an uproar from different quarters, with many condemning the decision. Among those who vented their displeasure on the matter online was the award-winning American filmmaker, Ava DuVernay.

In her tweet, she said:

“To @the Academy, you disqualified Nigeria’s first-ever submission for Best International feature because it is in English. But English is the official language of Nigeria. Are you barring this country from ever competing for an Oscar in its official language?”

Genevieve Nnaji replied DuVernay’s tweet with “Thank you so much @Ava. I am the director of  Lionheart. This movie represents the way we speak as Nigerians. This includes English which acts as a bridge between the 500+ languages spoken in our country; thereby making us #OneNigeria. @TheAcademy.”

Interestingly, Nigeria’s Oscar Selection Committee (NOSC) has on Tuesday, responded to the Disqualification of the movie from the 92nd Academy Awards saying that nominees in the Best International Feature must have a predominantly non-English dialogue track and Lionheart, though a wonderful movie falls below that criterion. The chairperson of NOSC Chineze Anyaene says:

“The budding Nigerian film industry is often faced with producing films with wide reach which often makes the recording dialogue predominantly English with non-English infusions in some cases.”

“Going forward, the committee intends to submit films that are predominantly foreign language – non-English recording dialogue. We are, therefore, urging filmmakers to shoot with the intention of non-English recording dialogue as a key qualifying parameter to represent the country in the most prestigious award.”

“The committee is working tirelessly in organizing workshops, seminars and using other available media to create robust awareness on the guidelines and requirements for an International Feature Film Entry.”

“Lionheart passed on other technical requirements from the story, to sound and picture except for language as adjudged by the Academy screening matrix, which was a challenge for the committee at a time. This is an eye-opener and steps forward into growing a better industry.”

Lionheart was produced in 2018 by Chinny Onwugbenu and was directed by Genevieve Nnaji. Netflix acquired the film on 7 September 2018.

With the acquisition, Lionheart became the first Netflix original film produced in Nigeria. Lionheart premiered at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada.

The movie featured Musicians Phyno and Peter Okoye (Psquare) who made their first acting debut. Some of the best brains in Nollywood were cast in the movie. They include Pete Edochie, Genevieve Nnaji, Ngozie Ezeonu, Kanayo O. Kanayo, Jemima Osunde, Onyeka Onwenu and many others.
