celebrity wednesday

There is just one day of the week when practically everyone gets the opportunity to make other people celebrities in their respective areas. It is another Celebrity Wednesday on Top Morning with Tosyn Bucknor. The Area Show starts up the show and this is when we get to make celebrities out of everyday people. Next is the Yarn-Free Zone which is a time to listen and groove to specially-selected songs. After the Yarn-Free Zone is the Top 9 Moments with Aramyde and then we listen to more music until 10 am when the celebrity for the day is unveiled and so the fun continues until 11 am when Tosyn finally signs out on the show.

On the Area Show this morning, the traffic update was as follows: heavy traffic at places like: Ketu, Ikorodu, 3rd Mainland Bridge, Dopemu, Isaga, Iyana Ipaja, Baracks, MAza Maza and Iju. Conversely, there was light traffic at places like: Lagos-Ibadan expressway, Maryland, Toll Gate, Ogba, Ojodu, Berger, Ojota and Palmgrove. The weather was cold and breezy in all these places.

Top 9 Moments with Aramyde:

· Zambia president, Rupiah Banda has ordered all monkeys removed from the grounds of his official residence, after one urinated on his head during a Press Conference.

· In June, Usher and his wife of nearly 2 years, celebrity stylist, Tameka Foster-Raymond, filed for divorce in the wake of constant rumours that they were breaking up.

· 50 Cent has proposed to Ciara. They’ve been dating for almost 2 years and in recent months, the couple’s relationship has ratcheted up.

· A man killed his girlfriend after becoming suspicious of her activities on facebook. Brian Lewis, 31, has denied strangling his partner to death at the home they shared with their 4 children in South Wales.

· Text messaging, Twitter and Social Networking sites could help families stay in touch in the wake of a disaster. The Safe America Foundation announced a national campaign to train families about alternative ways of staying in touch if traditional communication methods are not working.

· An Ohio judge is unhappy with repeated interruptions from a robbery suspect ordered a Policeman to put duct tape over the defendant’s mouth.

· Barcelona president, Joan Laporta says they are delighted with their summer market work. After closing the signing of Shakhtar Donetsk defeneder Dmrryo Chygrnsky yesterday, Lapota insisted they had met every request from coach Pep Guardiola.

· Arsenal striker, Eduardo has been banned for two games by UEFA for diving to win a penalty against Celtic last week.

Now, it’s time for the big gist of the day. Guess who the celebrity was for today... okay, i’ll let it out. It was no other person than Adigun Alapomeji himself, someone many people like to refer to as Adigun Alapo-plenty or simply... 9ice. He was a part of today’s celebrity show as he shared some things about himself. He talked about his ‘collabos’ with different artistes and how he just lets himself flow with the music and do his own thing. When asked about how he manages to manipulate his indigenous language with so much dexterity, he replied that it was just God’s gift to him and he sees singing in his language as a way to relate to his fans. It brings out the street credibility in him. He named some of the artistes he listens to and how he enjoys their music. He also mentioned that he’s always been a quiet child who never really gave his parents much stress when he was growing up. He said he hopes that his new album which is coming up in October will lead him to receive Grammy’s award. When asked about any other profession he would be in other than music, he said he would’ve loved to be a footballer {playing No 7} or a boxer {since being a good one is not a function of size} or even a lawyer {he will be going back to school this year}. As per the record label he’s signed to, he says it’s Alapomeji Record.

There was no better way for Tosyn to sign out than to thrill us with some songs from 9ice’s 2phat album at 11am.

Much love,

Ruthina Atinuke
