Don’t Buy My Music With Your Illegitimate Money – SIMI

Published

on

Recently, Nigerian songstress, Simi called out Yahoo boys and told them not to buy her music video CDs with their illegitimate money.

Quite a lot of people, celebrities included, came for her after she made this statement. Even her husband Adekunle Gold was dragged into it.

However, it would seem that comedian Ali Baba agrees with the R & B musician.

On his Instagram page, he shared a post to this effect. In the lengthy inscription, he stated the reasons why he thought Simi did the right thing by calling out these Yahoo boys.

But before he even went into this, Ali Baba congratulated Ketandu Chiedu, a young lady who has been granted admission to several Ivy league universities in USA. He stated how proud of her Nigerians were, and then, he plunged into addressing the issues.

 

He wrote:

First off, congratulations to #ketanduChiedu for the academic excellence. We are proud of you. Some days ago, @symplysimi called out people whose illegal activities were doing serious damage to our already battered, international reputation. She stated how it was affecting genuine businesses and social interactions. But instead of that to be a concern, many actually defended the criminals. We are still suffering from the consequences of elected criminals, who now fly in private jets with stolen public funds and now, even the unelected ones are growing wings. That’s why, flip cash, fixed odds, scams, stolen undies, give me N2000 to feed my younger ones, fake online business accounts, yahoo and the likes are on the increase. The people who bring this country honour are in the minority now. The lady pilot on Qatar airways didn’t get as many likes. But post that you are doing a 20k give away, you will get thousands of comments. Yet ones you say SOME youths are lazy, all the lazy ones begin to shout. And it’s bad enough that you are doing something illegal, justifying it doesn’t make it better. It makes you a horrible criminal. Everyone is a hustler. A criminal is not a hustler. A criminal is a criminal. Period

Kim Kardashian West Swaps Her Vintage Wares For a Cool Emerging Label

Published

Kim Kardashian

For the past few months, Kim Kardashian West has proven herself to be a die-hard lover of vintage fashion, stepping out in archival pieces by Thierry Mugler, Azzedine Alaïa, Versace, and Jean Paul Gaultier, with the latter’s slinky, tattoo-style pieces proving a particular favorite. Kardashian West’s obsession with scouring these throwback collections—and then finding items within them that still feel fresh and new—is trickier than it seems; her next-level eye has even made Vogue’s own resident eBay queen, Liana Satenstein, second guess her talent for finding those precious gems. But now, the star is giving all that up in favor of an achingly cool emerging label.

Stepping out yesterday in Los Angeles, California, Kardashian West was spotted in a custom outfit by the German brand Ottolinger. Since the brand’s designers Christa Bösch and Cosima Gadient, who are Swiss but based in Berlin, launched the line in 2015, they have developed a modern, sci-fi inspired aesthetic that combines body-conscious silhouettes with more technical fabrics; their recent Fall 2019 collection even featured riffs on ski wear. Kardashian West chose to mimic that sporty feel with a skin-tight tracksuit, detailed with subtle roping. Meanwhile, fitted boots gave it a head-to-toe finish.

So, does this switch-up officially end Kardashian West’s retro kick? Will she now return to the futuristic athleisure vibe that was once her signature? Judging by this ensemble, the answer is yes—and she’s chosen the perfect on-the-pulse design duo to nail the transition.

Taylor Swift Typo Twitter ablaze: ‘You’re the only one of you / Baby, that’s the fun of you’

Published

on

Some Taylor Swift fans are upset over a misplaced apostrophe on the singer’s merchandise after someone noticed the typo and posted it on social media.

Twitter user @SavvyStardust found the error on her shirt, in the lyrics of Swift’s new single “ME!,” which say: “You’re the only one of you / Baby, that’s the fun of you.”

However, on the shirt, the apostrophe is placed after the “R,” and erroneously says “your’e,” according to the picture.

 

“EXCUSE ME! I’ve had this shirt for nearly a month and you’re telling me it’s had a typo THIS WHOLE TIME!!” @SavvyStardust captioned the picture she posted on Twitter Wednesday.

Fans were not pleased with the find.

“But Taylor needs to see this. We ain’t paying good money to look like boo boo the fools,” one person wrote.

“STOP. THIS HAS TO BE A JOKE,” another person said.

“They need to re-send new one at no charge and send a shipping label to return defective one. Typically they don’t take back defective items anyway. I would contact the store,” someone else tweeted.

Another fan wrote: “Taylor needs her old merch team back.”

Several fans checked their own merchandise and, sure enough, they found the typo on their shirts, too.

“GIRL. SAME. Your post made me check my shirt!” one fan commented, with a video showing the typo on her shirt.

Other fans mocked the typo, particularly in light of one line in “ME!,” which says: “Hey, kids! / Spelling is fun!”

“I guess they didn’t listen when Taylor said that spelling is fun. I hope you can get it sorted,” someone wrote.

Someone else thought the typo was humorous, saying: “Isn’t this ironically perfect tho. I mean the quote says ‘You’re the only one of you, Baby that’s the fun of you’ this shirt with its typo makes it one of its kind and makes it a fun happy accident lol unless it was intentional.”

Others suggested the typo could be an Easter egg, since Swift has been known to drop hints in all her music.

“What if it’s an Easter egg?” someone asked, though the suggestion was shut down by someone else who responded: “A typo isn’t a cute Easter egg.”

However, the typo wasn’t on everyone’s merchandise. A few fans had shirts that didn’t have the misplaced apostrophe.

 

“Mine is spelled right but now I’m paranoid and checking ALL of my merch for typos!! Like wth??” she wrote, alongside a picture of her shirt with the correct grammar.

“Omg mine DOESN’T have that!” another person chimed in.

However, despite all the hype, @SavvyStardust made sure to note later that she’s not actually upset about the typo.

“People @ ing me as if I’m mad about the mistake on my shirt. I’m not even upset. I just find it hilarious it took me a month to notice. I love my misprinted shirt. Please if you’re coming to start drama move on because it ain’t here hunny,” she wrote.
