Ace comedian, Ali Baba has reacted to the building collapse that occurred on Wednesday at Ita-Faji, Lagos Island. Read below…
“Someone sent me a message asking why I have not said anything about this Lagos Island building collapse, since yesterday… I ignored it.
My condolences to all the families who lost loved ones and properties.
God will console you.
But just to avoid being considered insensitive, let me say this, we are our own problems.
If Lagos State Government marked that building for demolition and actually went through with the demolition, many of the people going emotional and getting angry about the non demolition now, would have been the same persons calling out the government for being insensitive to the plight of the poor.
How can they break down a school because they believe the integrity of the structure is suspect?
Close a road for repairs, you will hear people shout.
Clamp down on commercial drivers with out prerequisite certification, NURTW will go on strike.
Try to weed out the teachers in our schools who need to be taught, NUT will go on strike.
Query a Chief Judge who can not explain the source of monies that can not be from his salary, it is called a witch hunt.
Arrest buses for indiscriminate parking anywhere but the bus stop, it’s oppression of the masses.
People will throw dirt and refuse into drainage and complain of flooding.
Ask a young man with no means of livelihood driving a Range Rover, it’s oppression of the youths.
Stop a man who is driving with a child in the front seat, they will ask you is it your job?
Stop someone driving against one way, they will say, just let him go.
Posted a video of 2 Soldiers riding an okada without helmets, and the question some were asking was how much do the soldiers get paid?
How many times have we complained of tankers on the bridge?
How many engineers have been punished and licenses withdrawn?
How many properties have been seized?
How much compensation has been paid?
How many of such structures are insured?
What is the Institute of Quantity surveyors doing about these issues?
What do I know Sef?
Shebi I am just a comedian?”
Legendary Guitarist, Dick Dale dies at 81
One of the most influential guitarists and rock ‘n’ roll artists of all time, Dick Dale has died. Known as the King of Surf Guitar, Dick died on Saturday at the age of 81.
Dick spearheaded the surf rock sound that became globally popular through the Beach Boys and other bands in the ’60s. He had tons of solo records and also performed with a group called the Del-Tones.
Dick also made multiple TV appearances over the course of his career with performances on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” “Hollywood a Go Go,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “Late Show with David Letterman,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and others music-variety/talk shows.
He also acted in quite a few TV shows and movies, often playing himself including on projects like “Beverly Hills, 90210,” “An American Vampire Story,” “Let’s Make Love,” “Muscle Beach Party,” “Aloha, Scooby-Doo!” and lots more.
He released 11 LPs, 14 compilation and live albums, and had 11 singles over the course of his career. His iconic song, “Misirlou,” was also used in the opening credits of Quentin Tarantino’s cult classic film, “Pulp Fiction.” The Black Eyed Peas sampled that track too for their smash hit, “Pump It.”
Dick has said he’s dealt with a number of health issues over the years, including battling back from rectal cancer twice, dealing with diabetes as well as damaged vertebrae. Despite all that, he continued to tour, and even had shows booked for May and the summer.
I’m sorry to hear about Dick Dale passing. Dick’s guitar playing was a big influence on all of us, and we covered “Misirlou” on our Surfin’ USA album in ‘63. Love & Mercy to Dick’s family. pic.twitter.com/QPd2wzo7zB
