The oldest University in Nigeria~ University of Ibadan has explained the reason the management first of all requested that the Senate should allow them change names of some places in the institution which was eventually approved at a meeting in October 2017.
The senate approved the school’s request to name their Arts Theatre after Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka and Practical Theatre as Geoffrey Axworthy studio. The theatre was constructed in 1956 to provide a forum for performances and other forms of entertainment.
Here is why
Soyinka was the founding head when the school was transformed into a full Department of Theatre Arts in 1970.
Axworthy was the founding Director of the School of Drama of the university in 1962.
Axworthy used his position as the Director of the School of Drama to influence policy development and implementation. He promoted the relationship between the “town and the gown.”
Soyinka was a student at the University of Ibadan between 1952 and 1954 and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1986.
According to the Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. Idowu Olayinka, the two played significant roles in the development of the department and the growth of performing arts in the country.
“Falz the bad guy should go and show how brilliant he is in court”
That was MURIC’s message to the chap after the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) granted their petition to ban Falz’s video “This is Nigeria”
If you can recall, when Folarin Falana also known as Falz the Bad Guy dropped the video in May, MURIC group (Muslim Rights Concern) under the Director~ Ishaq Akintayo criticised it saying the artiste did not represent the Islamic religion well. He said the video portrayed Fulanis and Muslims as killers. It also showed women in hijab engaging in the notorious ‘Shaku Shaku’ dance.
The group gave him a 7-day ultimatum to withdraw the video or face litigation. But the group felt he shunned them and was boasting because he is a lawyer and his parents are famous lawyers too.
The director of MURIC~ Ishaq Akintola said he and others opted for petition because they felt since the musician is a lawyer, he would find all ways to delay the court case for years and would use every trick in the book to frustrate them.
Leaving Falz with a final word he said “He should be the one to go to court. Let him go and show how brilliant he is.”

When asked about her current relationship with her former manager/husband TeeBillz, Tiwa just said marriage is a sensitive matter and would not people to misquote her words and nothing more.
Finally, when asked how she felt being compared to Beyonce she said people should stop comparing her to Beyonce· According to her, though Beyonce is one of the best female artistes in the world, she still doesn’t want to be like her.
Her words “I would rather like to be myself. I want to be on my lane and be known as Tiwa Savage, not Beyonce.”
