Big Brother Naija former housemate, Nengi, has reacted to Governor of Bayelsa State, Douye Diri’s decision to replace her with Ebizi Blessing Eradiri as the Face of Bayelsa Girl Child.

Governor Diri removed the Big Brother Naija star and replaced her with Eradiri, the first female First Class graduate from the Faculty of Law at the Niger Delta University, NDU.

Eradiri also finished First Class from the Nigerian Law School.

The decision of the Governor to pick Nengi for the position had met strong criticism on social media as many believed that the double First Class Law Graduate, not only made Bayelsans proud but also the entire Izon nation.

And the Governor on Monday announced Eradiri as the New Face of Bayelsa Girl Child.

Eradiri and her father were at the Government House, Yenagoa, where the Governor also, among other things, gave her automatic employment to lecture at the NDU’s Faculty of Law.

Reacting to the development, Nengi tweeted, “Congratulations to Barr. Ebizi Eradiri. It’s amazing how you were able to pull that thru!

“Special thanks to my Governor for also finding her worthy for the honour. It is without doubt that we will both work together to see how we can front for a better welfare for the Girl child.”

“A lot of people are sleeping on me”- Singer, Zinoleesky

Fast-rising young artiste, Zinoleesky, has revealed that a lot of music fans and industry heads sleep on his talent as a singer.

The singer revealed this in a chat with DJ Cuppy on Apple Music’s Africa Now Radio where he was the cover star for the week.

He spoke about his roots in Agege, Lagos state, and how he discovered his musical talent as well as working with label boss, Naira Marley.

“Music doesn’t have to be long, it’s just when you have whatever you want to do and you want to deliver it and it’s just the way it comes,” Zinoleesky replied a curious DJ Cuppy who mentioned that her only problem with his debut project, ‘Eccentric Chrome EP’, was the length.

He was asked about the inspiration behind the title of the EP and the direction of the cover art to which Zino had revealed his gamer side as he pegged his love for a chrome car in the video game series, Grand Theft Auto as the inspiration.

DJ Cuppy also walked down memory lane with the young talent as she inquired after his backstory of falling in love with music.

In response, Zinoleesky said;

“That started a long time ago, right from primary school. I had this set of friends, we used to sing other people’s songs like it was ours and we’ll start this break dancing party.”

As for his becoming a viral sensation via Instagram freestyles, he said; “It’s wasn’t planned, I was just posting my video on Instagram and people started noticing and I started getting love and attention.”

Zinoleesky was also asked about his record label, Marlian music, and his experience working with the boss, Naira Marley.

He said;

“Actually, it’s an experience like no other because Naira Marley doesn’t take us like an artiste but like a brother. It’s a family thing and he’s a very intellectual person that influences you in all angles, spiritually and morally.”

He also revealed that they were currently working on a project together which they would reveal in due time.

To round up the chat, DJ Cuppy asked him to breakdown the sentiments that birthed his hit single Kilofeshe.

Zinoleesky responded, saying;

“It’s about what’s in my head, what I’ve been thinking and how I feel. I’ve been thinking that a lot of people are sleeping on me. Some people just don’t have that belief yet, so basically it’s me pouring out my mind and saying all the things I feel and telling them who I know I am.”
