Burna Boy’s 2024 Grammy performance ranks 6th on Billboard

The performance by Nigerian artiste Damini Ogulu, widely known as Burna Boy, at the 2024 Grammys has been ranked No.6 on billboard.

DAILY POST reports that Burna Boy on Sunday, February 4, performed for the first time at the Grammy Awards ceremony.

The singer performed ‘Sittin on Top of the World’ while accompanied by Brandy and 21 Savage.

Billboard in a ranking list released on Tuesday, said: “For the first Afrobeats performance at the 2024 Grammys, Burna Boy pulled out all the stops. Backed by Brandy’s gorgeous vocals and 21 Savage’s detached, confident cool, he sang “Sittin’ on Top of the World” and demonstrated that is precisely where he belongs.”

South African singer Tyla, however, secured a triumphant win at the 2024 Grammy Awards, clinching the Best African Music Performance award.

Abia: N1.5bn budget for Hilux caused by software error – Otti

Abia State Governor, Alex Otti, said that his administration actually budgeted 150 million naira for two Toyota Hilux vehicles, saying that the 1.5 billion naira initially stated in an earlier report was an error from software.

Governor Otti said this on Tuesday at Ezeukwu road market in Aba, while responding to a question by a journalist, concerning the media reports that Abia State Government had voted N1.5 billion to purchase two units of Hilux vehicles in its 2024 budget.

Otti, who was at Ezeukwu Market to sympathise with some traders, who lost their goods in a fire incident that occurred in the market on Monday night, attributed the controversial figure to a software glitch generated by the Excel package used in preparing the budget document, but said the error has been corrected to intended 150 million naira.

“When I saw that report, I knew something was wrong. I knew it could either be the units or the price. So, I called the Commissioner for Budget and Planning and asked him to check it out and call me back. He did and reported that it was neither the units nor the price that was wrong but the Excel. If you use Excel and the formula is not very right on a particular line, you’re bound to have a problem like that.

“It’s a mistake that has been corrected,” Governor Otti clarified.

The governor said as soon as the news of the bloated figure got to him, he immediately had to cross-check the budget numbers on his hand-held device and found that the N1.5 billion was not translated to the total budget figure and he was reassured.

“But suffice it to say that anything that comes from government must be correct. It is an error, and it has been corrected.

“I must thank the people who pointed out the error. It means that people are vigilant; people are checking and I encourage people to check, hold government to account.

“I believe that our people should remain awake and be vigilant and hold governments to account because the governments are governments of the people, for the people and by the people and that is the definition of democracy.

“I don’t think there’s anything to worry about. The overall numbers are correct and the figure of N1.5 billion was actually N150 million; two units of Hilux vans at N75 million each will give you N150 million, that’s the correct number,” Otti said.

Michael Okpara varsity shuts down indefinitely over students’ protest

The management of Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, Abia, has announced an indefinite closure of the institution, following Tuesday’s violent protest by the students.

The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Maduebibisi Iwe, in a statement issued in the aftermath of the protest, ordered the students to vacate the university premises with immediate effect.

The statement issued in Umuahia, added that the closure was to safeguard lives and property on campus.

Iwe’s statement reads in part: “This is to notify the public that the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, Abia woke up to experience the violation of the long existing peace of the university this morning.

“Miscreants took over the university, chasing and pursuing the Vice-Chancellor, damaging his official vehicle and those of his officials.

“They were claiming that they were not allowed to take their first semester examinations owing to their failure to pay their charges.

“The university’s record shows that 70 per cent of the students had paid their charges and were peacefully taking their examinations.

“More than 2,000 were in the queue to pay and register their courses before the miscreants and hoodlums took the stage to cause trouble and disrupt the long-standing peace of the university.”

A large number of students went on a rampage on campus over an alleged management’s refusal to allow those who had yet to pay their tuition fees to write the ongoing first semester examinations.
