Popular Port Harcourt Musician, Duncan Ikechukwu Wene Mighty, has parted ways with his business partner, popular jeweller Chris Aire after two years of business partnership.
According to Aire, the partnership has done exactly what it set out to do and, as a result, he’s now withdrawing to focus on other businesses.
‘This split also gives Duncan Mighty the chance to focus on his home career and continue to develop the young musicians under his tutelage. He is very talented and I wish him all the best’.
According to a release made available to GistNaija by Aire’s camp, Aire and Duncan Mighty signed a business agreement in May 2011, to further the career of the dance-hall act and to form the Niger Delta Music and Art Project (NDMAP).
The purpose of the NDMAP is to develop the careers of young up and coming artists from the Niger Delta, giving them opportunities to expand their career on a scale that may not have previously been afforded them.
In this two year period, Duncan Mighty was able to fully establish himself as an artiste outside the walls of Port Harcourt, recording and performing with international music superstar Shaggy and shutting down tops shows in and out of the country.
Don’t forget that controversial Rolls Royce Wene Mighty was pictured with and alleged to have bought…
No comments yet from the bestselling art though – he did not immediately reply messages sent to his phone, and efforts to speak with him were fruitless.

Nigerian player, Obafemi Martins is in love with Abigail Barwuah, the sister of Manchester City’s Mario Balotelli and he is not hiding it.
Photos of Obagoal and Ghanaian Abigail Barwuah hugging and kissing has emerged and gone viral. Reports by the foreign media say Abigail and the Nigeria international, Martins, who plays for Levante in the Spanish La Liga, are involved in a discrete relationship.
Record.com.mx quoted some Italian media, saying that the pair were captured on camera in suggestive poses, with Martins embracing and kissing Abigail. The relationship between the Nigerian goal poacher and his Ghanaian girlfriend started in Milan, Italy when Martins was playing for Inter Milan.
It was gathered that Balotelli is deeply concerned and displeased that the pictures have been published, as he does not approve of the relationship.
Abigail is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas – Rose Barwuah, biological parents of Balotelli. It would be recalled that Mario Balotelli at age two was fostered by White Italian family, Francesco and Silvio Balotelli as suggested by Social Workers when his parents couldn’t cope with his health condition.

I saw this on a site so I decided to share it. Goldie was rated as the most hated celebrity. Is it because of Big Brother Africa Show? Our own dear president, Goodluck Jonathan, was second most hated celebrity.
See the list for your self...
1. Goldie _This diva was among the finalists for the BBA 2012. During the competition, she was imposing herself on Kenyan Star Prezzo and acting very desperate. This did not go down well with some Nigerian audience of the show (maybe they believed that she was downgrading Nigeria via the act). After her eviction, she received a lot of insults.
2. GEJ _ He has been insulted more than any other president in the world in 2012. Wetin he do? Removal of fuel subsidy, not been able to get to the root of many probes, the list is endless.
3. Munachi _She celebrated her birthday recently & wore a dress which revealed some part of her bosom. This thing vex plenty of her fans cos she received some yabis ontop d mata. Some even say na market she dey advertise.
4. Diezani Alison Madueke _This woman is not a favorite among Nigerians. Since the time of the fuel subsidy removal, she’s referred to as the Frog Eyed Woman. Wetin she do? You can state that.
5. Tonto Dikeh _Her new songs High & It’s Over now have millions of views & downloads on internet. But it’s like these songs earned her a lot of hatred from music fans nationwide. She was renamed t*t* Decay and a notable comedian even made jest of her recently.
Wetin she do? We can’t really answer that but we know that she get many haters. Them say she no humble & she’s sultry. From the time she tweeted that she will give N1million to anyone who knows the meaning of her car’s customised plate number ‘Pokolo’ (How the hell did she want people to know if she didn’t say it). Need we say more about her cos you may get ‘high until it’s over’. Pls don’t laugh!
6. Bola Ahmed Tinubu _Ah, Baba ni yen.
Wetin he do? Na him be Governor of Lagos State between 1999-2007….Ok we remember more, he’s allergic to PDP.
Others are Terry G, Don Jazzy & D’banj, Sanusi Lamido, Charlie Boy, Farooq Lawan, Aliko Dangote.
You can add to the list & possibly state reason(s) why that personality was insulted so much this year.

Guinness World Records Officially Recognises Lionel Messi’s New Goal Record: Rejects Zambian and Brazilian Claims
Guinness World Records has officially recognized Barcelona football star, Lionel Messi, as the player to have scored the most goals in a calendar year after netting his 86th goal of 2012. Messi clinched the record after hitting the target twice in Barca’s 2-1 win over Real Betis on Sunday.
The 25-year-old Argentine edged past Gerd Mueller’s long-standing record of 85 – set in 1972 – to set a new benchmark, which includes goals for club and country.
This is coming against the backdrop of fresh claims by the Zambian FA that the record was never Muller’s to be broken, but was rather Kabwe Warriors striker Godfrey Chitalu who scored 107 goals, also in 1972. The five-time Zambian player of the year’s feat was never officially recognised by FIFA, but Zambian officials have approached football’s governing body to have the goals officially recorded.
Apart from that, there have been claims from Brazilian club, Flamengo, that Messi is still one goal shy of the record set by Brazilian Zico, who the club say scored 89 goals in 1979. The midfielder, who played in three World Cup campaigns for the South Americans between 1978 and 1986, scored 81 goals for the Rio-based club, seven with Brazil and one in a friendly. “Messi has not bettered the record,” said Bruno Lucena, a club historian.

Asemanya said the teenager who had removed the lower cable climbed the PHCN pole to vandalize the upper cable when his leg touched a line which caused a spark and fire which spread over his body while he persistently shouted for help. According to the governor’s aide, “vandalism of PHCN property has become a serious issue in Benue State, in the last one year. I have apprehended over 30 vandals, while some were prosecuted many of these persons were set free because PHCH has no legal team to ensure the prosecution of these suspects”, he said.
He explained that the residents had wanted to lynch the vandal but for his quick intervention and assistance by men of the fire service, the police and officers and men of the civil defence corps who were on hand to assist recover the vandal. The Special Assitant further disclosed that the suspect was receiving medical attention at the Federal Medical Centre, Makurdi where he lied critically ill with no one coming to identify him.

As preparation for the African Cup of Nations next year in South Africa from 19 January – 10 February enters top gear, Osaze Odemwingie has expressed confidence of making the final cut for the squad that will prosecute the matches but he is uncertain how he will cope when his wife gives birth to their first child in the same month.
The West Brom forward has not played for Nigeria in a long while following his reported unwillingness to dorn the national colours again but that has also been amicably resolved following a peace talk with Coach Stephen Keshi.
Odemwingie who has banged in four EPL goals for The Hawthorns so far, is however in a dilemma as his wife, Sarah, is due to give birth to a son less than a fortnight before the tournament.
“I hope it won’t affect my involvement,” said Odemwingie. “You can’t predict what will happen but I hope for a scenario where it will be easy.
“The due date is about 10 days before the African Cup of Nations. Babies can be late, or early, but in this case I pray it’s earlier so everything will go smoothly.”
