Photo Music In Africa

The graphic presented in the Glo television commercial enacted by Lagbaja and his band boys takes TV commercial to another level.
Lagbaja, who was about to travel out of the country at the International Airport was asked to verify his claim by playing a tune by the Immigration Officer checking his passport who asked, “How do I know you are not an impostor? Oya play me something?”

Lagbaja informed the Officer that members of his band were scattered all over the world but declared that the issue was not a problem as long as Glo 4G phones were available. He asked “who’s on Glo here?”

He got a couple of Glo smart phones and linked his band members namely the drummer, Dele in Asaba, Lekan, his gangan player in Calabar, Jide, his guitarist in Lagos, Ahmed, his keyboardist in London and Uzor, his konga drummer in Abakaliki. They played a beautiful instrumental version that viewers all over the world are excitedly gushing over.

A creative drama, so to say. This is a pointer to the importance of data to all the networks. ‘Data is oxygen’ is the novel pay-off line adopted by Globacom to aptly capture the very essence of data in today’s life.

Danny Young Speaks On YouTube Ban Of Tiwa Savage's "One"

Everything you need to live well

Some few days ago, it was revealed that YouTube had taken down Nigerian songstress, Tiwa Savage song, “One” for copyright infringement of fellow artiste Danny Young’s 2009 single, “Ohu Ti Won”.

This was coming after Young alleged on his Instagram page that she took a line off his song without due credit. Despite pointing this out, Savage went ahead to release the visuals of the song without addressing Young’s compaints.

Now, in a recent interview with, Young said he had left everything in the hands of his lawyers. He said,

“I wasn’t the one who contacted YouTube. My lawyers handled the process; I didn’t know how they went about it. You know YouTube knows the right thing to do.”

“She felt we couldn’t do anything. I am sure she and her team know that we have a valid point. We didn’t even ask them for money, but we felt intellectual theft should be taken seriously in this part of the world.

This is just the beginning; I plan to see this to the end if she doesn’t reach us for a compromise.”

As of the time of filing this report, Savage is yet to respond to Young’s accusation.
