Simeone Lauds Atletico’s Performance

Posted: 21 Sep 2016 11:33 PM PDT

Atletico Madrid manager, Diego Simeone has praised his team’s performance in the second half against Barcelona.

Ivan Rakitic opened the scoring, putting Barcelona ahead by halftime. Angel Correa then scored the equaliser in the second half.

Simeone was pleased with what his team produced after the break as they left with a well-earned point.

“For us, it is always difficult to draw anything positive from Camp Nou,” he told a news conference.

“In the first half, we defended well, but we could not counter-attack. The goal in the second half made us react.

“In the second half we are much more dangerous. After the draw, we waited for our opportunity with the players that we had to play the spaces.”

Simeone also talked up the display of midfielder Thomas Partey, who came on with 17 minutes remaining.

“He gave us power in the midfield to counter better in the last few minutes with [Fernando] Torres, [Antoine] Griezmann and Correa.”

The result sees Atletico sitting fourth in the table, four points adrift of league leaders and city rivals Real Madrid.

Enrique: Messi Injury A Big Loss For Football

Posted: 21 Sep 2016 11:01 PM PDT

Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique is keeping faith in his squad, who he believes will remain strong despite Messi’s injury.

The Argentine striker sustained a groin injury in the 1-1 draw against Atletico and had to be substituted off.

Messi Out For Three Weeks With Groin Injury

The Argentina star is set to miss three weeks with a groin strain, the club later announced.

Luis Enrique remains upbeat over the ability of his team, even without one of their attacking maestros.

“To lose Messi means that football loses,” he said, via the club’s Twitter.

“With Messi we are stronger, but we will continue being strong.”

Ivan Rakitic gave Barca the lead four minutes before half-time against Atletico, but Angel Correa levelled for the visitors just past the hour-mark.

Luis Enrique felt his team were worthy of a victory, saying: “These types of games are decided by small details, and we deserved more.”

Barca sit third in the table, three points behind leaders Real Madrid – who were earlier held to a draw by Villarreal.

Messi Out For Three Weeks With Groin Injury

Posted: 21 Sep 2016 11:00 PM PDT

Lionel Messi will be sidelined from football activities for the next three weeks, due to a thigh injury he sustained against Atletico.

The Argentina international could no longer continue after a tussle with Diego Godin had him clutching his leg in pain.

The injury is a reoccurrence of one he sustained while on international duty. Messi will miss the UCL clash against Mochengladbach.

The 29-year-old will also be absent for clashes at Sporting Gijon and Celta Vigo, and is in a race against time to be fit for the visit of Manchester City to the Camp Nou in late October.

Barcelona’s woes were compounded against Atletico as Sergio Busquets also had to be substituted in the second half, though Andres Iniesta has confirmed it was only due to a fever.

Wednesday’s draw saw the Spanish champions fall three points behind leaders Real Madrid at the top of La Liga.

Adele has dedicated her concert to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. 

During her performance at Madison Square Garden, New York City on Tuesday night, the 28-year-old singer addressed the shocking split between Jolie and Pitt.

Adele said:

I don't like gossiping and private lives should be private, but I feel like it's the end of an era so I'm dedicating this show tonight to them.

It's really, really sad. By the way I chat a lot, forgive me, whatever, I don’t care, I like to chat. I don’t go out much so when I can let loose in front of this many people, I’m really on my own.

Watch Adele dedicate her concert to Brangelina – The video was published on Youtube by an attendee(Raju) of the concert Wednesday. 

 Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, Tuesday, after being together for eleven years.

Angelina Jolie, 41, and Brad Pitt, 52, met on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith in 2004.

Jolie and Pitt were rumored to be an item after the success of their movie together, yet, neither confirmed their relationship until 2005.

Both Jolie and Pitt were partners for nine years before officially becoming married in 2014.

Unarguably one of Hollywood’s most high profile couple, Brangelina split, Tuesday, after being officially married for two years.

Angelina cited “irreconcilable differences” just as Brad Pitt said he felt “saddened” at divorcing Jolie.

The World War Z actor added that what mattered was the welfare of their kids. He also requested privacy from the press.

Reports Reveal Alexis Arquette Lived With HIV For 29 Years

Posted: 21 Sep 2016 09:01 PM PDT

Alexis Arquette died on September 11 at the age of 47 and her medical reports reveal she lived with HIV for 29 years.

According to her death certificate, obtained by the Los Angeles Times, Arquette had been diagnosed with HIV 29 years before her death at the age of 47. This suggests she contracted the disease at age 18, LA Times reported.

The official cause of Arquette’s death was declared as cardiac arrest, yet, three weeks before her final passing, she was suffering from bacterial endocarditis and a heart infection.

The actress and transgender activist, died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California. She was surrounded by her family. Alexis took her last breathe while being serenaded by David Bowie's "Starman".

Alexis Arquette Starred As Damien In Bride Of Chucky

Alexis Arquette starred in the 1998 movie Bride of Chucky. She played the character Damien.

She was born as Robert into the famous Hollywood ‘Arquette’ family.

In her late 30’s, Arquette transitioned from male to female. Those experiences were documented in the film ‘Alexis Arquette: She’s My Brother’, which debuted at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival.

In a 2009 interview, Alexis told Entertainment Weekly:

Coming out as transgender in America from a celebrity family is a lot easier than it can be for private individuals anywhere else in the world.

In fact, if you come out as transgender in certain parts of the world, you may be murdered in the street.

360Review: P-Square – Bank Alert

Posted: 21 Sep 2016 08:56 PM PDT

After spending the greater part of the year locked in a supreme battle of wills – actually it goes back a few years now but who's counting? –  the brothers Okoye, (Jude inclusive) appear to have set aside their differences aside for the time being at least.

Their time away and the total rejection of their solo attempts by the fans must have convinced the Okoye clan that in their case, two is indeed better than one.

And so for the love of the fans, or the art, or maybe just the money (most likely), everything on the surface, appears to be good again in Squareville.

READ: 360Recommends: P-Square (Bank Alert)

Anyone hoping for a reinvention from the brothers in terms of sound and career direction has not really been following the Psquare brand this past decade.

The brothers are no trend makers. They just follow whatever is hot at the moment and make the best version of it, packaging whatever they are selling to a shiny gloss.

The title of their much hyped reunion sets the mood for what is to come. And what comes next is a shiny, upbeat version of today's radio friendly fare. The opening beats recall Shekini, the hit single from their last album Double Trouble but this time, they don't bother to come up with supporting dance steps.

The mood is jubilant, the swing upbeat, autotune application is generous and Psquare is in their favourite mileu, singing about money; both making and spending it. The lyrics consist of familiar Psquare mumbo jumbo, My bank alert na gbagam/My cheque e no dey bounce/My mansion all na gbadam/Baby take a look around.

If you ever heard a Psquare (un)original tune before, from Chop my money to Testimoney, you have heard Bank Alert. The themes are the same and the brothers seem happiest whenever they are flaunting their fabulous wealth.

The video, directed by the duo of Clarence Peters and Jude Okoye can be described as a love story, not between a man and woman although the plot involving a young couple wants to make you think so. It is another trifling documentation of the brothers' love affair with money.

After a brief intro, where Paul tries but is unable to sell an image of him as a pauper, the video warms up to its topic with clips of private jets, Ghana Must Go bags bursting with money and famous friends (Kcee, Phyno) climaxing in an obscene show of wealth in a deprived neighbourhood.

Bank Alert does not come close to approaching the heights of the best P-Square videos but it works as an average one. P-Square can churn out decent videos even in their sleep but what really makes this one exciting and not another run of the mill effort is the presence of Nollywood star John Okafor (Mr Ibu) and national treasure, Onyeka Onwenu.

Bank Alert actually borrows heavily from Onwenu's evergreen hit Iyogogo and her presence serves as a very open endorsement, a necessity in these days of copyright infringement accusations. Okafor and Onwenu nearly steal the show with their infectious dance steps and willingness to be in on the joke.

P-Square is back alright and, it is just like they never left.

Watch P-Square in ‘Bank Alert’ Video below!

Lupita Nyong’o – Redefining Modern Beauty

Posted: 21 Sep 2016 07:30 PM PDT

Kenyan starlet, Lupita Amondi Nyong’o, 31, graced the October issue of Vogue(US), and she spilled on how she is redefining beauty. 

This is her third time covering the esteemed fashion and lifestyle publication.

Ms Nyong’o strutted through 66 red carpets in the six months leading to the 2014 Oscars and was called People's Most Beautiful Person. Still, she had a hurdle to scale through due to her black skin

Shortly after her Oscar win, a talent agent named Tracy Christian felt Lupita would have a better shot at superstardom if she was lighter-skinned (drawing comparison to Beyonce’s skin tone), saying more people can look at her and see themselves in her or landed a franchise with Star Wars or Bourne Identity – barely two months later, Lupita was cast in JJ Abrams, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. 

Still, Lupita felt it was wrong to be subjected to just a “cultural tapestry”. She said:

I have to deafen my ears to that Christian lady. She is looking at me as part of the cultural tapestry. I am living and breathing. That person is not considering what I had for breakfast, how that is sitting in my stomach, and why I didn't do well with that audition. I can't think like that. I cannot run away from who I am and my complexion or the larger society and how they may view that. I realize that with what I shared at the Essence awards.

In 2014, Lupita was honored at the Essence Black Women In Hollywood event. During her speech, she talked about how she saw beauty from within and not from without. She said her mother made her understand, that beauty wasn’t something one consumed or acquired, it was something one had to “be”.

Lupita Nyong’o said:

You can’t rely on how you look to sustain you. What actually sustains us – what is fundamentally beautiful is compassion, for yourself and for those around you. That kind of beauty inflames the heart and enchants the soul. Feel the validation of your external beauty but also get to the business of being beautiful inside, there is no shade in that.

Lupita Nyongo’o, An Enigma To Reckon With

Lupita Nyongo’o forced the world to reckon with her enigma after winning an Oscars for her performance in 12 years a slave in 2014.

Since then, she has featured in stories focused on the role and power of black women, such as her stage performance in Eclipsed on Broadway – where she played the character of a teenage wife to a commander; the movie Queen of Katwe – she acted as the mother to a chess geniusand the adaptation of Chimamanda Adichie’s Americannah – where she portrayed the role of a black blogger writing about racism.

The Kenyan star also helps charitable causes in her home-country, such as, saving elephants from poaching and reducing the death of mothers during childbirth. She has lent support in a light project for girls begun by Salima Visram, who lived in a poor village with no electricity near Mombasa.

According to Elizabeth Rubin for Vogue:

Visram designed a backpack for children fitted with a solar panel that is connected to a battery pack. As the children take the long walk to school, their battery is charged, and at night, after chores, the battery can power an LED lamp and they can study.

Lupita Nyong’o intends to chart her own course through life and have fun doing what she loves which is to tell compelling African stories.

Oloyode said: "Students would generate a PIN number for themselves from their phone or computers before registering for examinations,”adding that “this step was taken to give opportunities to more students to participate in the examinations.”

The registrar challenged NASU to get involved in the ownership of Computer-Based Testing Centres, saying those who own the centres are businessmen merely exploiting students.

REVEALED: ISIS Militants Pay Brides’ Dowries With Guns And Suicide Vests

Posted: 21 Sep 2016 03:18 PM PDT

Some documents retrieved from Sirte, the Islamic State (ISIS) group's last bastion in Libya, divulged startling marriage contracts (dowries) offered by militant grooms to their future wives.

The documents, which were retrieved by pro-government forces battling the group in Libya, revealed that the jihadists offered their brides unusual dowries – from an explosive belt to a Kalashnikov and then parts of the Quran to memorize.

The Associated Press on Wednesday revealed that the forces allied with the country's unity government discovered the archives as they combed through buildings seized during their 'months long' battle to overthrow IS from its coastal bastion of Sirte.

READ ALSO: Scores Dead As Boko Haram Fighters And Soldiers Clash In Fatori

The marriage documents were posted on Wednesday on the Facebook page of a Libyan anti-ISIS operation known as al-Bonyan al-Marsous, and were stamped by a judge in a Sirte religious court.

The Facebook post says the documents were found in the Sirte courthouse, however, it was not immediately possible for AP to verify their authenticity.

The surnames of the brides and grooms suggested that quite a number of them were from African countries such as Nigeria, Senegal, Mali and Tunisia.

In one example from November 31, 2015, Abu Mansour, a Tunisian born in 1977, married a Nigerian called Miriam, in the presence of Sudanese and Malian witnesses.

In contrast to Islamic norms, Abu Mansour did not pay a dowry but vowed to pay compensation in the event of his death or the marriage being dissolved — in the form of an explosive belt.

Fatima, from Nigeria, was promised a Kalashnikov assault rifle in case of divorce or if her husband, Malian Abu Said, died.

Libyan forces loyal to the United Nations-brokered government have waged a campaign to dislodge ISSIS from Sirte since June.

This Is What Life Is Like In A $21,000 First Class Airplane Seat

Posted: 21 Sep 2016 02:32 PM PDT

Recently, YouTuber Casey Neistat recently got a free upgrade from Business Class to First Class on an Emirates flight from Dubai to New York City.

Obviously, He had to document his absolutely amazing experience on what will probably be the most luxurious flight of his life. The ticket for this flight will cost you $21,635.30 just incase you would want to try it for yourself.

According to his video documentary, The seat comes with a private sliding door that secludes your seat from every one else, a gigantic touch-screen TV, a personal bar worthy of a five-star hotel, fancy face creams, a set of pajamas, round the clock caviar, hot showers if you please, an extensive food menu and a lot more goodies.

All that luxury can tire a person out and when Casey was ready to lie down, a cabin crew member came to help turn his chair into a bed, complete with bedsheets, a pillow and a duvet which Casey claims is “more comfortable than my bed at home”


First class

“When I think of the greatest days in my entire life, I think of when my children were born, or perhaps when my son graduated high school, or today, when I was upgraded from Business to First on Emirates” Casey said

Making ‘Africa Rising’ A Reality In Nigeria – Muhammadu Buhari

Posted: 21 Sep 2016 02:17 PM PDT

Making 'Africa Rising' A Reality In Nigeria – Muhammadu Buhari

Until a few years ago, Africa Rising was a dominant theme in conversations about the global economy. That enthusiasm has since cooled, so that in newsrooms and think tanks and conference panels, "Africa Rising!" has given way to a more questioning "Africa Rising?"

While some of that pessimism may be justified, we do not have the luxury of distracting ourselves with lamentations about our current circumstances. Instead of hoping for commodity prices to rise, African countries should seize the opportunities that these times present – not least here at today's U.S.-Africa Business Forum – to lay a foundation for the kind of economic growth that transforms the lives of our people.

One of our biggest challenges during the boom years was that we failed to convert the benefits of high commodity prices into more jobs and significant improvements in standards of living. Hence the great debate, during those years, about how to ensure that the growth became "inclusive."

Now that we are face to face with the vulnerabilities somehow hidden during the years of plenty, we should turn away from the unhelpful habits of the past and chart a new course. Since I signed the 2016 budget into law in May, Nigeria's Ministry of Finance has released more than 400 billion naira for infrastructure spending – more than the total amount spent in 2015.

In the face of dwindling oil revenues, we are turning to debt. We have begun raising a $1 billion Eurobond, our first in three years. We are also raising debt from the World Bank, the African Development Bank, the Chinese Ex-Im Bank and other development finance partners.

Unlike in the past, when borrowed funds were frittered away on unproductive ventures, we will ensure their investment in the revival of stalled road, rail, power and port projects, and in agricultural initiatives that will significantly boost domestic production of food. For far too long we have under-invested in infrastructure – the most critical element for creating sustainable economic growth. The net effect: an avoidably high cost of doing business in Nigeria.

But even more important than what the government is able to spend is the limitless investment potential of the private sector. This is why one of our main priorities is creating an environment in which private-sector capital can thrive. We are in particular using Public-Private Partnership models to support game-changing private-sector projects in power, refining, gas transportation and fertiliser production.

We are also putting in place measures to ensure that monies intended to revamp our infrastructure do not end up in the pockets of corrupt officials and their collaborators. Already we are investigating the theft of several billion dollars in public funds by the previous administration. We are not only bringing these corrupt officials to justice, we are also setting up systems to make it impossible for such a grievous abuse of public trust to happen again. And of course, we are as committed to playing by the rule of law as we are to accounting for every naira and recovering them for our treasury. These were funds meant to build roads and railway lines and hospitals and schools, and to equip our military – which has for the last seven years been fighting one of the deadliest terrorist groups in the world.

In that regard, we are already seeing the positive results of our anti-corruption efforts. Long starved of both materiel and morale by the corruption in the military's upper echelons, our reinvigorated troops have now put Boko Haram permanently on the back foot. Some of the more than two million persons displaced by Boko Haram have started returning to their homes. Just last week, the people of Nigeria's North-East celebrated their first incident-free Eid in years.

Our troops have rescued thousands of men, women and children trapped in areas held by Boko Haram. To meet their urgent humanitarian needs, we are working with the United Nations and other partners to provide food, medical help and shelter. We will strive to ensure that no victim is left behind, including the 219 Chibok girls who have, since their abduction in April 2014, served as a global symbol of the war against Boko Haram and a reminder of the horrors that it has inflicted on innocent Nigerians.

Even though the times are still dire, our economic recovery plan is already showing positive results. Investment's share in gross domestic product is at its highest since 2010. Inflation is slowing; manufacturing confidence is rising. People are seeing and seizing opportunities to make money catering to the needs of Africa's most populous country. Finally, our Social Investment Programme – the most ambitious in Nigeria's history – will kick off this month. In its first year it will provide cash transfers to one million of our poorest people, hot meals to five million primary school children, cheap loans to more than one million artisans and traders, and job opportunities in healthcare, agriculture and software and hardware development for half a million young people.

The journey ahead remains long and difficult. Our double-digit inflation, currency turmoil and downgraded ratings will not vanish overnight. We also know that the current recession is partly driven by the production outages in Nigeria's Delta region, and we are confident that growth will accelerate as problems in that region are resolved.

But the real story here is not the challenges, which are all too visible, but the opportunities. We have learned the necessary lessons. We will ensure that Nigeria does not slip back into a lazy and dangerous dependence on the price of crude oil. We will continue to insist on transparency and accountability in the use of government funds. And we will build an economy that prioritises the ease of doing business and investing, and that thrives on the entrepreneurial energy and ingenuity of our people.

To achieve these objectives, Nigeria needs robust and reliable partnerships such as we have with the United States. This is why I value the Commercial and Investment Policy Dialogue that we have just launched, and which we shall announce at today's U.S.-Africa Business Forum.

The months ahead will show not only that Nigeria is on the rise, but that this "Rising" is real and lasting – one that touches not just the statistical databases, but the lives of the people who elected us to deliver positive change.

Amateur English Football Club Lets Fans Pick Starting Lineup

Posted: 21 Sep 2016 02:02 PM PDT

English football club United London FC, playing in the Essex Alliance Premier League, English Football’s 12th tier claims to be the only managerless club in the world.

At United London FC, the position of a coach is unnecessary as each week, the lineup is selected by the team’s fans. Instead of a traditional coach, the team has set up elements of a reality tv voting and player analytics similar to the ones used in video games and by scouts. The fantasy football-style system awards and deducts points to/from the team’s fans (acting as managers) based on whether their selections make the starting eleven, score a goal, assist or keep a clean sheet.

Chairman Mark North explained “In non league football, there's not much in the way of eyeballs, because the Premier League just takes over everything. That's where we want to be different, in that we are building an online fan base, rather than a localized one” . So far, more than 2,000 people have signed up with the club which was formed this year. The team claims support from fans in Australia, Argentina, United States, Brazil, Sweden and Canada.

Each week, the fans vote on the starting lineup based on player statistics, scouting reports and videos from previous matches posted online by the club. After voting closes each Friday, the squad for Saturday’s match is announced. One recent member of the club’s fan club, John Frusciante, a 19-year old from New Jersey said “I think it’s cool because it keeps supporters involved, The fans have more input than say, at Real Madrid. Zidane isn’t going to ask you If Ronaldo should be starting or not”.

NBA: Should OKC Trade For Rudy Gay As A Durant Replacement?

Posted: 21 Sep 2016 01:02 PM PDT

A couple days ago, Rudy Gay told the Sacramento Kings management that he would not be resigning with the team and would opt for Free Agency in 2017.

Gay wanting out of the Kings isn’t really a surprise as its been widely reported that the forward isn’t happy with his situation on the court. From being the go-to player in his time at the Memphis Grizzlies to playing second fiddle to DeMarcus Cousins in Sacramento.

That normally wouldn’t be a huge problem if it didn’t affect his style so much. Rudy Gay is a slasher-type forward, drives in and plays in the paint. In a team with Cousins however, he has been forced to become a shooter. This is because Cousins owns the lane every game. Gay is forced to take more jump shots and that’s not ideal for a player with his style.

Rudy Gay to the Thunder — Good or bad?

Rudy who turns 31 next summer averaged 17.2 points per game last season. This is his lowest in the last three years and this is looking like his last chance for a big pay day. Now should the Thunder take the chance and trade for him before the season starts?

OKC have a big Kevin Durant-shaped hole that might be impossible to fill. But with Russell Westbrook’s ability maybe all they need is a decent short term running mate. At least just till next summer when they can target their superstar signing. If rumors are to be believed, they have identified that person as Rudy Gay.

What would the Thunder have to give up for the 6ft 8inch forward? Rumors swirling say Kyle Singler, Anthony Morrow and maybe a first round pick might work. In my opinion this would be a good move for both parties, what do you think?

5 Ways To Turn Her On With Just Your Hands

Posted: 21 Sep 2016 12:55 PM PDT

Your hands can be a powerful weapon when it comes to driving your woman crazy. Knowing where to touch and how to touch her can make for an amazing experience for your partner. Check out useful tips below.


An aroused lady is a relaxed lady. If you want to excite her while also making orgasm more likely, start with relaxing her. Take your time getting to know her body. Run your hands over her skin gently and tenderly. When you move to foreplay after this, you are already almost to the point of getting her really turned on.

Tease her

Knowing what parts of her body to put your hands on can heighten her pleasure. Multiply her arousal by touching her erogenous zones while you are together. Even if she has clothes on, target some spots like her nipples and her inner thighs which will still have a level of sensitivity despite being covered.

Use your fingers

Take the time and give your woman a treat. A fingering session can be very arousing and orgasm inducing if you know where to touch. Most men just spend a few seconds with their fingers in her, assuming it is a needless foreplay move but this is a bad idea. Dedicate your time to her. Spread her legs and explore her with your hand. There are so many great ways to do this. You can settle comfortably between her legs and using one hand, find her clitoris and tease it gently. While doing this, you can use the other hand to finger her in a penetrating motion. Soon, you will have her quivering and squirming in orgasmic bliss.

Her nipples

If you are the type to instantly cover her nipples with your mouth as soon as she takes off her clothes, you are missing out on a huge way to pleasure her. Use your fingers to gently tease her breasts, slowly making your way towards her nipples. Using your index finger and thumb, gently tease and roll them around in your hand. You can also slide around the nipples with your nails and some women even love a little pinch. The nipple is extremely sensitive and there are a lot you can do with them using just your hands.

Public teasing

Expert lovers know that the bedroom is not the only place to turn on your woman. You can have your woman completely aroused in public if you know how to touch her. An arm around her waist and a simple caress on her body using your fingers can be exciting. If you can, run your hand down her spine or even slide your hand surreptitiously on her bottom. You will leave her anticipating what would happen as soon as you are both alone. Besides, these will make her think about sex with you, causing her to turn herself on in her head long before you get together.

Ex-Super Eagles To Face Team Jamaica For ‘A Trip To Jamaica’ Novelty Match

Posted: 21 Sep 2016 12:29 PM PDT

Comedian AY, the Guinness World Record holder and producer of the highly anticipated movie A Trip To Jamaica, has this week added a new twist to its movie release plan with a novelty football match to celebrate the Ex Super Eagles of Nigeria and Team Jamaica.

The novelty match which will take place on Saturday, September 24, 2016 at the Teslim Balogun Stadium will feature prominent Jamaican ex-National team players such as Deon Burton, John Lawrence, James Hubert, and Kevin Lisbie playing against ex-Nigerian football players such as the legendary Kanu Nwankwo, Jay Jay Okocha, Peter Rufai, Joseph Yobo, Mutiu Adepoju, Victor Ikpeba, and Ghanaian's Stephen Appiah to name a few.

Speaking on the development, a very excited Ayo Makun (AY) disclosed that the novelty match will be free for all to attend, and also televised live on Hip TV from 3pm. He also went on to say it's a fitting way to announce the movie project to the world based on the passion held by diverse cultures for football.

He said, “A Trip to Jamaica was created to celebrate the best of our cultures and using a football match which will showcase these great players who have all worn their individual countries national colours to represent them at international competitions is a fitting way to herald the release of the movie."

The football game will be witnessing live comedy and musical performances as part of celebrating the cultures of these unique countries. The official soundtrack of the movie which is already taking over the airwaves, is a remix of Supreme Mavin Dynasty's first lady and the new comer in the Roc Nation camp, Tiwa Savage's Keys To The City which is from her recently released album RED.

The remix features Jamaican dancehall singer Busy Signal. A Trip To Jamaica is billed for release across cinemas in Nigeria from September 30. Cast of the movie includes AY again as the no-holds-barred Akpos, alongside the award-winning Funke Akindele, Hollywood veteran Eric Roberts, Paul Campbell of The 3rd World Cop fame in Jamaica, Nollywood A- List actress Nse Ikpe-Etim, Ghanaian Lover Boy Chris Attoh, Dan Davies from Hollywood and Rebecca Silvera who was the former Miss Jamaica and the Winner of She’s Got Game American reality television dating game show.

Also including cameo appearances from music stars: Cynthia Morgan, Patoranking and Olamide. The movie which is co-written by AY and Dianne Diaz was directed by Robert Peters, the US-based multiple award winning film maker who also directed 30 Days in Atlanta.

The movie will be distributed by FilmOne Distribution, Nigeria's fastest growing film distribution company (behind box office successes like Fifty, Wives on Strike and Ghana Must Go).
