Teen American artist Justin beiber banned from ever singing in china
Teen American artist Justin beiber has been banned from ever singing china again. The Chinese ban that justin bieber received was due to his bad behaviour .

According to a statement released by Beijing’s Municipal Bureau of Culture, “Bieber’s lifestyle overseas and his words and actions when he last performed in China had generated public dissatisfaction. “Given efforts to purify the performing arts environment in China, it was not appropriate to bring in artists with bad behavior.

So, some folks have gone too far by digging up Wizkid’s Lasu Result, which shows he had a poor semester in the University before heading to Lead City University, a Private University in Ibadan, Oyo State.
Apparently, Wizkid got admitted into the Lagos State University, Ojo through UME, to study Sociology in 2008, but had a really poor result in 100 level, before pulling out in 200 level.
The result shows Wizkid’s Cumulative Grade Point Average of 0.91 , which is beyond poor.. Most schools withdraw students with at least 1.5 CGPA.
He carried over 44 courses.

  Buhari has broken a record in the english dictionary .!
President Muhammadu Buhari might be sick and probably enduring some unpopular moments in his political career due to the crises in Nigeria but he has achieved a milestone in his life.
He has broken the nation’s record as the first Nigerian to enter the English dictionary. He is the first Nigerian to have a political term – “Buharism” named after him.
According to the Wikipedia, “Buharism is a term rooted in the politics of Nigeria, referring to the economic principles and the political ideology of the military government of Nigeria headed by General Muhammadu Buhari from 31 December 1983 to 27 August 1985. This ideology shares common features with fascism; the government was a right-wing nationalist government that pursued corporatist economic programs and curtailed personal freedoms. Economic reforms were characterised as moving the political economy away from the control of a “parasitic” elite, and into the control of an emerging “productive” class. Buharism represented a two-way struggle: with external global capitalism and with its internal agents and advocates.”
Buhari is widely hailed as a strong man of integrity who is cleansing Nigeria of the cancer of political corruption. His faltering health has constituted a setback but it is hoped that the All Progressives Congress chieftain and Fulani native will surmount the challenges before him for the betterment of Nigeria.

      Jay Z’s 4.44 album hits platinum in less than one week
Jay Z’s new body of work, 4.44, has been certified platinum less than one week after it was released.
The rapper was able to achieve the 1 million sales requisite for platinum, by getting subscribers to stream the 10 tracks on the album at least 1.5 billion times, since the album was released exclusively to Tidal and Sprint subscribers and not available for physical sales
The 4.44 album is Hov’s 13th studio album.
Jay Z received his 13th platinum plaque on Wednesday, from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
According to XXLMag, Chairman and CEO of the RIAA, Cary Sherman said in a statement: “Props to Jay, he’s done it again. Another platinum adds to an already iconic career”.
No other rap or hip hop artist has more than 10 platinum albums, hence making Jay-Z the first hip-hop artist to hit this status.

Cristiano Ronaldo has posted the first picture of his new twins, after flying home immediately after Portugal’s Confederations Cup defeat to Chile.
Ronaldo, 32, posted a picture of himself holding the new additions to the Ronaldo family, declaring: “So happy to be able to hold the two new loves of my life.”
Reports earlier this month suggested Ronaldo, 32, had become a father for a second time with a surrogate mother. It was believed the two children were born in the United States and had been visited by Ronaldo’s mother.
Last week Ronaldo’s siter, Katia, told Portuguese TV he had welcomed a girl and a boy, called Eva and Mateo, into the world.
“Mateo and Eva, those are the names of Cristiano Ronaldo’s twins. The boy and girl were born to a surrogate mum. It’s a secret that Cristiano Ronaldo hasn’t yet revealed to the rest of the world”
The news had not been made official, before Ronaldo confirmed their birth on Facebook on Wednesday night.

Stella Damascus against 2baba’s protest for Nigerians,see her reasons here

Stella Damascus just released a video condemning 2face protest .
She advised that the time that will be used in carrying out the protest could be used for other more useful things. I wonder what could be more productive than a group of people standing up for their rights,fighting against societal problems and oppression ,protesting for a better tomorrow.
But I don’t really blame Stella Damascus’s reluctance to participate in 2face’s proposed protest because

  1. Stella Damascus is outside Nigeria enjoying herself so you can bet that she doesn’t know the sufferings that Nigerians are going through that’s why she won’t support 2baba’s protest.
  2. Stella Damascus is definitively trying to be in the good books of the federal goverment . You can’t blame her though because everyone that speaks up in the era is usually prosecuted even when the person that is speaking up is saying the right thing. We all remember how apostle Suleman was almost arrested and questioned by Dss e.t.c

Here video was shared on nairaland and Nigerians that saw the important of 2baba’s protest reacted immediately. Some of their comments included

    Pls all this celebs Tuface is a Nigerian. He
    has the right to freedom of speech. Wether you
    support him or not. The protest will hold as
    planned. What have you done to help in this
    situation we have found ourselves? Only one
    thing ie CRITICISM.

    Please Aunty Stella don’t you think that with

    2baba changes the Nigerian protest date from 5 – 6th

    2baba’s protest date has been changed. The protest against the failure of the Nigerian government to address certain critical issues was formally scheduled to hold on February 5th 2017 but the protest has being shifted to February 6th 2017.
    . The reason for the 24-hourshift is for
    the protest to co-incide with the date
    President Buhari will resume work.Buhari is
    currently on a 10-day medical vacation in the
    United Kingdom and he’s expected back the
    country on Monday February 6, 2017.
    2baba (formerly 2face Idibia) has rescheduled
    the 5th Feb protest against Nigeria’s Federal
    Government to 6th Feb 2017.
    The official statement on the postphonement
    goes thus:
    Hello my fellow Nigerians…
    Since the idea of a nationwide march was first
    mentioned, the need for urgent solutions to
    the challenges facing Nigerians has become
    very clear. The people have hoped for a better
    Nigeria since 1999 but things are not getting
    any better for the majority. We are still where
    we are – poor and desperate. I will be no
    longer be quiet.
    I want to thank EiE, The 2face Foundation,
    numerous colleagues and countless fellow
    Nigerians for stepping up to partner with me. I
    am just a musician with a point of view and
    the ear of my fans.
    I have dedicated my time and resources to
    peace building, voter education towards
    peaceful elections and youth engagement in
    governance in Nigeria. This time around, my
    partners, colleagues and I have come together
    to present a platform for real Nigerians to
    communicate their real pains to government
    at all levels in a peaceful and articulate
    manner with a view to getting lasting
    solutions to our problems.
    This march is about demanding that all
    saboteurs of good government policies should
    hands off.
    This march is about encouraging positive
    minded Nigerians to continue to work without
    We have a system that is clearly designed not
    to work for the majority.
    What is this march not about?
    It is not a platform for politicians of any party
    to manipulate. I know you will still spin it but
    for one second leave your battles aside and
    just listen to people without trying to score
    cheap political points against one another. It
    is not a point scoring exercise. It is certainly
    not personal.
    It is not an organized labour platform. With
    all due respect to our comrades who have
    done much for Nigeria, this march is for the
    It is not a ‘my religion or tribe is better than
    yours’ matter. All our blood is red.
    I, Innocent Idibia, am a living example of a
    Nigerian who owes their success to Nigerians
    of every tribe and religion. None ask what
    religion or tribe I am before supporting me. I
    am grateful.
    Therefore, it is with every sense of humility
    that I say that with this march, I want:
    1) Security
    All Nigerians’ lives MUST matter. My religion,
    ethnicity or what part of the country I live
    shouldn’t determine the type of protection I
    get from my government.
    According to the Constitution, ‘the security
    and welfare of the people shall be the primary
    purpose of government.’
    2) Education
    To develop beyond oil, we have to invest in
    our human capital. Every child must have
    access to quality education. If our teachers
    are not paid, how will we raise the next
    generation to lead the country and run our
    3) Health
    Health is wealth. People die daily from lack of
    basic, affordable health care. We can definitely
    do better.
    4) Power
    Government needs to make it easier to
    generate power at the state and local
    government level so everything is not tied to
    the center. We need electricity to be
    productive. The cost of generating our own
    power is crippling.
    5) Unemployment
    Poor education plus a struggling economy
    means a lot of people are unemployed.
    Unemployed people are hungry and angry.
    6) High cost of living
    Food, transportation, medicine, everything is 3
    times, 4 times more expensive but our salaries
    haven’t increased. What do we do
    7) Social Justice
    According to the Constitution, ‘The Federal
    Republic of Nigeria shall be a State based on
    the principles of democracy and social
    There cannot be one set of rules for the poor
    and another set for the rich.
    The best way to kill corruption is to increase
    transparency. Government finances and
    contracts must be open and available to all.
    Who got the money, to do what and by when?
    9) Cost of government
    Our governance is TOO expensive – federal,
    state, local – cars, housing, allowances. We
    must reduce the cost of maintaining our
    public officials
    10) Patriotism
    I stand with Nigeria. There is enough in
    Nigeria for all of us to ‘chop belleful’. Enough
    is enough. We must put Nigeria first and keep
    all the greedy & selfish people away from
    Call to Action
    Between now and Monday, February 6, I ask
    you to share via videos, Facebook, Twitter,
    blogs, SMS to 0902-355-5335. How are these
    issues affecting you? What are your daily
    struggles? How is it doing you? No matter
    what part of the world you are, I encourage
    you to share your stories. And join me on
    Monday in Surulere or online
    Use any of the hashtags #IStandWith2Baba #
    IStandWithNigeria #OneVoiceNigeria on social
    We will take all the reports and send them to
    our elected representatives as ONE VOICE of
    Nigerians across party, ethnic and religious
    lines – as they hear real people talk about
    real issues.
    On Monday, February 6, meet me at the
    National Stadium at 8AM and we’ll walk to
    the National Theatre – 2 national icons that
    epitomize our decline – as we state clearly
    and peacefully that #IStandWithNigeria and
    Nigeria must work for all of us and all of us
    must work for Nigeria.

    At 19 years old, Norwegian Alexandra
    Andresen is the world’s youngest dollar
    billionaire. Her big sister, 20-year old
    Katharina, is the second youngest.
    The Andersen family’s fortune comes mainly
    from the tobacco brand Tiedemanns, which
    was founded by Alexandra’s great-great-
    great-grandfather. After the brand was sold in
    2005 for nearly half a billion dollars,
    Alexandras father, Johan F. Andresen,
    transferred 84 percent of the equity in Ferd to
    his two daughters in 2007.
    The 42 percent of the family empire, puts
    Alexandra’s and Katharina’s net wealth at
    about $1.2 billion dollars each, according to
    ”I feel a great sense of responsibility. In a way,
    I feel that I don’t deserve this, but at the same
    time I want to help Ferd become even better. I
    think it’s difficult to find a way to give
    something back” says Alexandra on the
    homepage of Ferd, the family’s centuries-old
    investment firm.
    Alexandra Andersen currently lives in Germany,
    where she is a professional dressage
    competitor. She has won several prestigious
    medals in the sport. businessinsider
    Alexandra Andresen is a Norwegian heiress,
    and as of December 2016 aged 20, the world’s
    youngest billionaire, although not the world’s
    youngest self-made billionaire ( John Collison )
    . Her net worth now is estimated to be $1.2
    billion (£862 million).
    She is the daughter of Johan H. Andresen jr. ,
    the Norwegian industrialist and owner of Ferd
    AS, a privately held investment company, who
    in 2007 transferred 42.2% each to Alexandra
    and her sister Katharina Andresen. Wikipedia
    The rating was given by forbes .
    A Norwegian Public Health Institute official
    said ‘the Andresens are so rich partly
    because their company was responsible for
    a lot of suffering’
    The world’s youngest billionaire inherited her
    fortune from a tobacco firm that allowed child
    labourers as young as 10 to harvest the
    deadly crop in Africa, MailOnline can reveal. Dailymail .

    telegraph .
    Alexandra was only recently confirmed as the
    world’s youngest billionaire because the
    Norwegian government publishes the tax
    returns of people over 17.
    But despite her affluent upbringing in one of
    the best-known Norwegian families, she isn’t
    just any rich kid. Alexandra is already an
    accomplished horse rider, winning several
    massive competitions in dressage. businessinsider .

    photo : What we miss most about fela anikulakpo kuti ?

    biography of the famous Nigerian afrobeat musician fela anikulakpo Kuti ,quiz NIGERIANS WHAT DO YOU MISS MOST ABOUT HIM, FELA  ?
    Remember to join our facebook page here for the latest update.

    This question asked by the theafricanarchive on their Facebook page and Nigerians responded immediately with what they missed most about the famous Nigerian musician Fela kuti.

    Abdullahi Danlami: what I missed most about him was
    His voice of truth.
    He started something that would have saved
    the mass from the blind mentality of political
    intimidation by the authority . But people
    didn’t stand up due to the consequence of
    voicing out.
    And we still suffer from it till this day.

    Johnson Lee Oluwadamilare
    Fela spoke the truth!!! you can deduce that in
    his song Suffering and Smiling, in 2015,
    Nigeria was ranked the either 3rd or 2nd
    happiest country in the world when the
    citizens in the country aren’t even happy!
    aren’t we suffering in the country and on the
    outside look like we are smiling? Even Beast
    of no nation, he said “This uprising will bring
    out the beast in us” aren’t we seeing in now?
    hasn’t the beast in us been showed?
    kidnapping here and there, rape everywhere,
    people killing each other! Even in his song
    Sorrow, Tears and Blood he said “my people
    fearbto fight for freedom, we fear to fight for
    liberty, we fear to fight for happiness”…
    government increased price of fuel from
    87naira to 145naira and we didn’t do anything
    about it! we just accepted it! aren’t we slaves
    to the government?? are we liberal in that
    way? R.i.p Fela Anikulapo Kuti!!

    Opeyemi Tunde
    Baba 70 fela anikulapo have been looking
    forward to see someone like this man, I
    haven’t seen any, his braveness,boldn
    ess,bluntness and always saying the truth of
    the matter like putting the whole thing out the
    way it is good trees do not stay long in forest.
    Miss that legend

    Iyke Stevens
    What I miss most about him is “Fela”! He may
    not be so likable in the religious world, but his
    motives and ambition akin to the life of Jesus
    Christ. Not in holiness, righteousness or
    miracles, but in advocating for civil justice
    and equity without fear or favor. Sometimes
    prophets come and go and we don’t recognize
    them. Fela is one of such. Musically, he was
    simply Fela, a brand with his own niche.

    Yusuphology-baba Compos Mentis Omosanya
    What he used his music for, what he used his
    marijuana highness for, to fight for justice and
    equality, most musicians today only emulate
    the habit of smoking weed from baba 70, they
    have all forgotten what he fought for # RIP

    Saliiu Mohammed :
    Unfortunately for the present generation we
    don’t have music again, we only have drum beat.
    Music is part of education which Fela, Bob
    Marley, Sunny Okosun stand for. I missed
    them greatly.

    Johnson Ojo
    Fela is the truth, he is one. It is impossible to
    miss an entity that lives forever through his
    records. The total package that encompasses
    everything that is past, present and future. He
    is a phenomenon, a mindset, an intellectual
    provocation, a manual prescribing the crux of
    the black man’s problem, the prognosis and
    the only remedy. The conundrum however, is
    how do you save a people that do not want to
    be saved????

    Gbolahan Gee-n Bada : fela kuti was a great man. I missed
    His brash charisma, his originality, his
    courage, his boldness, his nonconforming
    personality, his sense of humour, his wizardry
    on the saxophone & keyboard, his unmatchable
    musical composition & arrangement ability,
    his powerful messages, his evergreen songs.
    He was a god amongst men. He was the only
    Nigerian artiste whose track can run for 10
    minutes & I will listen to everything & still not be
    bored. Many have tried to reach the reach the
    Heights he attained but none has succeeded.
    What makes me sad is that the same ills & vices he
    sang about still prevail & thrive in our society
    Today & we have not moved forward since that time.

    Benard Omorojie
    I miss him for the true he always say, if Fela
    Kuti was to be alive l don’t think president
    Buhari will come back as our president again.

    biography of the queen mother of all Nigerian bloggers

    I refer to linda ikeji as the queen of Nigerian bloggers.
    linda ikeji looking nice lindaikeji the blogger linda the queen
    Linda is a Nigerian blogger, writer, ex-model
    and entrepreneur best known for being
    Nigeria’s top blogger and even Africa. She is
    often said to be the richest Blogger in Nigeria.
    She is also known for her philanthropic works.
    Her blog lindaikeji.blogspot.com is one of the
    most visited news/info sites in Nigeria leading
    a lot of newspaper websites.
    She is a native of Nkwerre LGA ,Imo State,
    Nigeria .She was born in to a struggling
    family, the second of seven children. She grew
    up in a christain catholic home .
    At a tender age of 10 years , Linda started
    writing as a hobby .
    The fiction she penned down were praised by
    her friends and family and over time she
    cultivated a passion for news. Unlike many
    teenagers her age, Linda loved watching
    newscasters and interviews and by the time
    the opportunity presented to attend university
    in Lagos, her course choice was decided:
    Mass Communication.
    She was admitted to study English Language
    in the university to her disappointment, but
    she decided to make the best of it. To support
    herself and her family through school, Linda
    began working at the age of 17, doing
    everything from being a waitress and ushering
    to modelling and bar-tending, none of which
    paid a lot in the late 90′s. She started
    modeling in 1998 and quit in 2005 .fashion
    columnist for a struggling celebrity magazine.
    After two years of toiling in the news room,
    she quit.
    She began her advent into entertainment as a
    striving model while in UNILAG. She modeled
    for several brands, including the ‘Rose of
    Sharon’ label owned by former President of
    the Fashion Designers Association of Nigeria
    (FADAN) and Nigerian billionaire and oil
    tycoon, Folorunsho Alakija. She took to
    modeling at only 17 featuring in some of the
    most glamorous fashion shows in the country.
    Talk about St Moritz Style Selection, she was
    there. She has also been to ECOFEST and
    done several out door advertisements.
    In 2004 , after she completed her university
    education, she worked hard to break into the
    journalism trade, launching her media
    company, Black dove Communications, a
    modelling agency and events management
    outfit. The name Black dove was inspired by
    silverbird..a name and a bird. it so happens
    that her favourite colour is black and favourite
    bird is the dove.
    She stayed within her comfort zone which was
    modeling so instead of being in front of the
    camera , went behind the camera by running
    an agency, recruiting models, training models,
    getting jobs for models. I still have the
    modeling agency but I am not running it
    anymore . She also started what she describes
    in her first ever blog post as her “true
    passion”, her magazine called, FM & B. The
    first issue was released in 2006 and after
    discovering how capital-intensive and time-
    consuming magazine publishing was, only two
    more editions made it to print.
    The blogging bug bit her in 2006. Fortunately,
    in that same year, Bella Naija, another popular
    Nigerian blog, carried a story about Linda
    herself and for the first time, Linda began to
    see a new possibility to take her writing to the
    world. Blogging had all the charm: it was free
    except for the cost of an internet connection,
    easy to do and gave you access to millions of
    readers instantly. From that first Bella Naija
    blog post, she was sold.
    Linda Ikeji started blogging fully in 2007 to
    share things that she was interested in with
    her readers. Five years later, lindaikeji”s blog
    has grown to be one of the most visited sites

    on what she did even though there was no
    financial return but five years later it has
    yielded great profit , a talk of all. She found a
    new path , Blogging . But she persisted until
    2010, when some of the stories posted on her
    blog began to ruffle feathers. At a point, Linda
    averaged about 1 million unique visitors each
    month to her blog. And with that came the
    much-needed recognition and substantial
    earnings. In August 2012, Forbes Africa
    described her as a success and a case study
    for the business of blogging.
    Her blog gets over 50,000 visits daily as at
    2012 so as at 2014 tmtn can estimate upto
    90-100,000 visitors per day because her blog
    rank on alexa keeps booming everyday, and its
    a hot spot for online advertisers and people
    wishing to attract web traffic to their websites
    or blogs. Comments on Linda’s blog can be
    revealing, interesting and more controversial
    than the post itself.
    She’s also a motivational writer. Linda has
    written a couple of motivational books. “I
    don’t like speaking, I only enjoy writing which
    has positively affected my blog. I do my
    motivational talks through my blog.”
    Linda’s blog reportedly rakes in an average of
    N3m a month from adverts from various
    brands and online ad networks, which makes
    her the highest earning blogger in Nigeria.
    Blogging has brought her the fame , power
    and comfort ability she needed.
    Her blog serves as a source of news, photos
    and information for most entertainment
    bloggers. Most people have criticized linda
    saying her blog promote rumors but she
    decline such. Linda provides real
    entertainment on her blog and she will always
    make sure you come back for more.
    The passion and the love she has for blogging
    has kept her going while making her earnings.
    She has mixed with various big celebs in
    nigeria Dbanj, Tiwa savage and others. she
    took some pictures with dbanj showing in him
    kissing her in a public event which trended a
    lot online in 2013.
    In 2013 she made a video with her sisters
    dancing to Antenna song showing how skillful
    and fun she is at dancing.

    Abraham Lincoln On his first day
    in office as President of
    United States of America,
    Abraham Lincoln entered the
    hallowed chamber to give his
    Inaugural Address. A Rich
    Aristocrat stood up and said: “Mr.
    Lincoln, you
    should not forget to tell us that
    your father used to
    make shoes for my family”….And
    the whole Senate
    laughed. They thought they had
    made a fool of Lincoln…
    But certain people are made of a
    totally different gene.
    Lincoln looked at the man directly
    in the eyes and said:
    “Sir, I know that my father used
    to make shoes for
    your family, and there will be
    many others here too,
    because he made shoes the way
    nobody else can.
    He was a creator. His shoes were
    not just ordinary shoes
    cos he poured his whole soul
    into them. I
    want to ask you, have you any
    complaint? Because
    I know how to make shoes
    myself. If you have any
    complaint, I can make you
    another pair of shoes.
    But as far as I know, nobody has
    ever complained
    about my father’s shoes. He was
    a genius, a great creator
    and I am proud of my father”.
    The whole senate was
    dumbstruck. They could not
    understand what kind of man
    Abraham Lincoln
    was. He was proud because his
    father did his job so well
    that not even a single complaint
    had ever been
    heard. Remember, no one can
    hurt us without our
    consent. It is not what happens
    to us that hurts us, it is our
    response that hurts us. There are
    people out there whose
    only job is to hurt others. Don’t
    give them a reason to have
    so much work on their hands.
    May your days be blessed!

Their second effort, ‘The Writing’s on the Wall’ (1999), brought them wider acclaim back home. The album generated three top-ten hits on the Billboard R&B singles chart.
    In 2000, despite internal conflicts that resulted in the departure of Luckett and Roberson from the group, Destiny’s Child continued to promote their sophomore effort, playing as a supporting act for Christina Aguilera’s summer tour.
    In 2001, still calling themselves Destiny’s Child, the group released their third album, Survivor. In 2004, after launching a successful solo career with ‘Dangerously in Love’, Knowles won five Grammy Awards, tying a record for most wins by a female artist.
    Her second solo effort, ‘B’Day’, was released in September 2006 to coincide with the singer’s twenty-fifth birthday. In its first week, ‘B’Day’ sold more than 540,000 copies in the U.S.
    In 2008, Beyonce launched her third solo album entitled ‘I Am … Sasha Fierce’. It proved to be yet another hit with the critics and earned her six Grammy Awards. This meant the 29-year-old had become a record breaker by winning the most Grammy Awards of any female artist in one night.
    During an interview for Entertainment Tonight, Knowles confirmed that she is currently writing songs for, and producing her latest album, which she said is a mixture of all the genres she respects. She also said that the music was not R&B or pop.
    Beyonce also made a start in acting, making her debut in MTV’s ‘Hip Hopera: Carmen’ in 2001 and co-starring as Foxxy Cleopatra in Mike Myers’ James Bond parody ‘Goldmember’ in 2002. Other films include 2004’s ‘The Fighting Temptations’ and 2006’s ‘The Pink Panther’.
    Her starring role as Deena Jones, a Diana Ross-like character in the big-screen adaptation of the 1981 Broadway hit musical ‘Dreamgirls’, earned a Golden Globe nomination in 2006. Beyoncé’s song ‘Listen’ was nominated for an Academy Award.
    Warner Bros has announced that Clint Eastwood will be directing Beyonce in her latest film project, ‘A Star is Born’. The film tells the story of an alcoholic falling star, played by Kris Kristofferson in the 1976 version, and a young female artist who was played by Barbara Streisand in the Seventies remake of the 1930s original, however the filming was postponed in 2011 due to the singer’s pregnancy.
    Knowles’ has been romantically linked to hip-hop mogul Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, since September 2002. They performed together in music videos for two of her hit singles, ‘Crazy in Love’ and ‘Deja Vu’. The couple married in April 2008. Among the guests sighted at the wedding were Beyonce’s mother Tina Knowles, her father and manager Matthew, her sister Solange, Destiny’s Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, and friend Gwyneth Paltrow.
    In a recent interview, Paltrow described her friend Beyonce as the “most talented human being on the planet”. She admitted to respecting the singer’s talent and said that the “mastery over what she does” goes beyond confidence, and she described it instead as “on a while other level” and “mind-blowing”.
    The group’s next album, Survivor, was another huge success for the girls and made number One on both the Billboard 200 and the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, as well as the UK and Canadian Albums Charts. The tracks “Independent Woman Part I” and “Bootylicious” zoomed straight to the top of the Hot 100, while the title track, “Survivor”, reached number Two. By the time Destiny’s Child announced their intention to disband in 2005, they had established themselves as one of the most famous and top-selling female groups in recording history.

    On November 4, 2008, Senator Barack Obama of Illinois was elected president of the United States over Senator John McCain of Arizona. Obama became the 44th president, and the first African American to be elected to that office. Obama’s father, also named Barack Hussein Obama, grew up in a small village in Nyanza Province, Kenya, as a member of the Luo ethnicity. He won a scholarship to study economics at the University of Hawaii, where he met and married Ann Dunham, a white woman from Wichita, Kansas, whose father had worked on oil rigs during the Great Depression and fought with the U.S. Army in World War IIbefore moving his family to Hawaii in 1959. Barack and Ann’s son, Barack Hussein Obama Jr., was born in Honolulu on August 4, 1961.
    Did You Know?
    Not only was Obama the first African-American president, he was also the first to be born outside the continental United States. Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961.
    Obama’s parents later separated, and Barack Sr. went back to Kenya; he would see his son only once more before dying in a car accident in 1982. After remarrying an Indonesian man, Lolo Soetoro, Ann moved with her young son to Jakarta in the late 1960s, where she worked at the U.S. embassy. In 1970, Obama returned to Hawaii to live with his maternal grandparents. He attended the Punahou School, an elite private school where, as he wrote in his 1995 memoir, Dreams from My Father, he first began to understand the tensions inherent in his mixed racial background. After two years at Occidental College in Los Angeles, he transferred to Columbia University in New YorkCity, from which he graduated in 1983 with a degree in political science.
    Pre-Election Career
    After a two-year stint working in corporate research and at the New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG) in New York City, Obama moved to Chicago, where he took a job as a community organizer with a church-based group, the Developing Communities Project. For the next several years, he worked with low-income residents in Chicago’s Roseland community and the Altgeld Gardens public housing development on the city’s largely black South Side. Obama would later call the experience “the best education I ever got, better than anything I got at Harvard Law School,” the prestigious institution he entered in 1988.
    In 1996, Obama officially launched his own political career, winning election to the IllinoisState Senate as a Democrat from the South Side neighborhood of Hyde Park. Despite tight Republican control during his years in the state senate, Obama was able to build support among both Democrats and Republicans in drafting legislation on ethics and health care reform. He helped create a state earned-income tax credit that benefited the working poor, promoted subsidies for early childhood education programs and worked with law enforcement officials to require the videotaping of interrogations and confessions in all capital cases.
    Re-elected in 1998 and again in 2002, Obama also ran unsuccessfully in the 2000 Democratic primary for the U. S. House of Representatives seat held by the popular four-term incumbent Bobby Rush. As a state senator, Obama notably went on record as an early opponent of President George W. Bush’s push to war with Iraq. During a rally at Chicago’s Federal Plaza in October 2002, he spoke against a resolution authorizing the use of force against Iraq: “I am not opposed to all wars. I’m opposed to dumb wars…I know that even a successful war against Iraq will require a U. S. occupation of undetermined length, at undetermined cost, with undetermined consequences.”
    When Republican Peter Fitzgerald announced that he would vacate his U.S. Senate seat in 2004 after only one term, Obama decided to run. He won 52 percent of the vote in the Democratic primary, defeating both multimillionaire businessman Blair Hull and Illinois Comptroller Daniel Hynes. After his original Republican opponent in the general election, Jack Ryan, withdrew from the race, the former presidential candidate Alan Keyes stepped in. That July, Obama gave the keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston, shooting to national prominence with his eloquent call for unity among “red” (Republican) and “blue” (Democratic) states.
    In November 2004, Illinois delivered 70 percent of its votes to Obama (versus Keyes’ 27 percent), sending him to Washingtonas only the third African American elected to the U.S. Senate since Reconstruction. During his tenure, Obama notably focused on issues of nuclear non-proliferation and the health threat posed by avian flu. With Republican Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, he created a Web site that tracks all federal spending, aimed at rebuilding citizens’ trust in government. He partnered with another Republican, Senator Richard Lugar of Indiana, on a bill that expanded efforts to destroy weapons of mass destruction in Eastern Europe and Russia.

    In August 2006, Obama traveled to Kenya, where thousands of people lined the streets to welcome him. He published his second book, The Audacity of Hope, in October 2006.
    2008 Presidential Campaign
    On February 10, 2007, Obama formally announced his candidacy for president of the United States. A victory in the Iowaprimary made him a viable challenger to the early frontrunner, the former first lady and current New York Senator Hillary Clinton, whom he outlasted in a grueling primary campaign to claim the Democratic nomination in early June 2008. Obama chose as his running mate Joseph R. Biden Jr. Biden had been a U.S. senator from Delawaresince 1972, was a one-time Democratic candidate for president and served as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Obama’s opponent was long-time ArizonaSenator John S. McCain, a Vietnam veteran and former prisoner-of-war, who chose AlaskaGovernor Sarah Palin as his running mate. If elected, Palin would have been the nation’s first-ever female vice-president.
    As in the primaries, Obama’s campaign worked to build support at the grassroots level and used what supporters saw as the candidate’s natural charisma, unusual life story and inspiring message of hope and change to draw impressive crowds to Obama’s public appearances, both in the U.S. and on a campaign trip abroad. They worked to bring new voters–many of them young or black, both demographics they believed favored Obama–to become involved in the election.
    A crushing financial crisis in the months leading up to the election shifted the nation’s focus to economic issues, and both Obama and McCain worked to show they had the best plan for economic improvement. With several weeks remaining, most polls showed Obama as the frontrunner. Sadly, Obama’s maternal grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, died after a battle with cancer on November 3, the day before voters went to the polls. She had been a tremendously influential force in her grandson’s life and had diligently followed his historic run for office from her home in Honolulu.
    On November 4, lines at polling stations around the nation heralded a historic turnout and resulted in a Democratic victory, with Obama capturing some Republican strongholds ( Virginia, Indiana) and key battleground states ( Florida, Ohio) that had been won by Republicans in recent elections. Taking the stage in Chicago’s Grant Park with Michelle and their two young daughters, Malia and Sasha, Obama acknowledged the historic nature of his win while reflecting on the serious challenges that lay ahead. “The road ahead will be long, our climb will be steep. We may not get there in one year or even one term, but America, I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there. I promise you, we as a people will get there.”
    Obama’s inauguration took place on January 20, 2009.
    ride on president Obama we are solidly behind you!!!
