Abiodun Koya – Lift Up Nigeria (prod. Wole Oni)

Opera Singer, Abiodun Koya Marks Democracy Day With Lift Up Nigeria. Opera music diva, Abiodun Koya is sounding a clarion call of renewed hope and patriotism with the release of an inspirational song entitled Lift Up Nigeria. The release of the captivating song by the talented US returnee comes as Nigeria is set to mark another May 29 which is set aside as Democracy Day. Lift Up Nigeria is a chorus that is very easy to learn. It was composed and arranged by the talented singer while it was produced by award-winning music producer, Wole Oni.

Abiodun has had a successful career as an Opera Singer in the United states for about 20 years. The Soprano Vocalist studied Business Management at the University of Columbia, Washington and has a Masters Degree in Music from Catholic University.

With infectious eagerness, Abiodun Koya describes the new song as an inspired song different from what she has worked on.

“Lift Up Nigeria is a song that everybody can sing along to easily. My dream is to start a fire of love and patriotism about Nigeria amongst fellow citizens of our beloved country. Speaking negatively about Nigeria will be an ungrateful thing. We shouldn’t join others to put our country down. We should love our country dearly irrespective.

The song has earned rave reviews from world leaders after it was performed first at the grand opening of ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo Library in March and, later at Aso Rock during a special thanksgiving service for Vice President, Yemi Osinbanjo.

Nicki Minaj faking her romance with Nas?

I don't believe so, she's too famous to be trying some shitty publicity stunt especially with someone like Nas. Plus she went on Ellen show to confirm rumors she's dating the rap legend. But according to The Jasmine Brand, it's all a big PR stunt. Insiders tell The Jasmine Brand,

[Nicki] told her team that she planned to link up with Nas to do a collaboration”. She was like, “He’s the king of queens and I’m the queen and this collab would silence everything. Her team was like, “Why not take it a step further and put the idea of this being more then a collab on the table?”
They were telling her, ‘Yo, this is an automatic win if y’all link up.’ Nicki is still feeling the sting from the Remy Ma situation, so they’re trying to use all distractions to propel her fans and critics to forget about her L.
She has never had a sleepover at his house. In fact, I think she was just humoring Ellen. You know to be tongue in cheek, but she has spent time with him. And no, they didn’t have sex, but they did do other things.
Nas is her pawn to get back at Meek Mill. She wants people to think, ‘I upgraded and you [Meek] out here looking like you taking Ls now.

Ryan has been the host of the popular series since its launch back in 2002, and while he reportedly earns around $10 million per season, Katy Perry's $25 million offer puts him in the shade.

Sources say things are so bad, Ryan is considering quitting the show. Richard Rushfield who authored American Idol: The Untold Story said: '[He] was suddenly asking himself why he would come back for a 16th season at a salary [much smaller than that] of the newcomer judge.'

Katy Perry hasn't been at all modest about her hefty fee. During an interview with a radio station she bragged about her earnings saying: 'I’m really proud that, as a woman, I got paid. And you know why? I got paid more than pretty much any guy that’s been on that show.'
