The first day I went to church at 15, a Prophetess told me that God was going to use me through music - Micasa's J'Something

Micasa’s frontman J’Something got to know about his career in music at 15 and according to him, it came from a Prophetess the first day he went to a church.

The South Africa singer in his testimony via Instagram, revealed that he freaked out and was slightly pissed because he felt the lady was embarrassing him in front of all the girls. J’Something went on to say that he never wanted to be a musician, but a sportsman.

He however called his mother for a guitar because he wanted to obey the Prophetess, who told him to pick up the instrument because God was going to use him in the music industry.

Narrating how his journey into music began, J'Something wrote;

My closest companion. First picked one up at the age of 11. As I sat one day in church, 15 years old, a prophet picked me out of a crowd of a couple 100 people. She called me up and told me she had a msg for me from God.

Now what you gotta understand is that this was my first time ever going to church. So I was freaked out and slightly pissed off cause this lady was embarrassing me in front of all the girls from VG. Any way ... she went on to tell me that (without knowing me from bar of my soap my friends) God was showing her a musician. She asked me if i played music. I then thought she had gotten the wrong dude and this msg was for somebody else ... but then she dug and pulled out a memory that reminded me I had played guitar when I was eleven for like 6 months. She then told me that God wants me to pick up guitar again because he is going to use me in the music industry!

Now what you must understand is at that time I had ZERO desire to be a musician. I wanted to be a sportsman. But I went home, slightly freaked out that God had sent a msg for me and it made no sense but still I wanted to obey. Called my mother up, told her, “mae, God says I need a guitar.” A few months later, after my mom had saved up enough money she went and bought me a guitar. I look back at that

Jameson Unveils Super Premium Whiskey Like No Other, Jameson Black Barrel

Jameson Black Barrel is here! The new super premium whiskey from Jameson made its debut through highly disruptive activities and launch events that took place over a series of days, where key influencers and customers of the brand were able to taste and experience the Jameson Black Barrel. It is a triple distilled blend of ‘small batch’ grain and traditional Irish pot still whiskey aged in twice charred barrels, with a smooth redefined taste, the Jameson Black barrel is like no other.

Two weeks before the launch, key influencers were gifted customized black barrels similar to the barrels Jameson whiskey is aged in, along with a case of the product and encouraged to share the Jameson spirit with others. Jameson Brand Ambassador Alani Adenle (@alanigram) led this #BlackLikeNoOther influencer campaign, personally delivering gifts and highlighting each influencer’s unique talent which makes them like no other.

The Hats & Tatts party hosted by Alani was the perfect opportunity to celebrate the launch of the new super premium whiskey, with Jameson Black Barrel influencers and friends of the brand. The highly disruptive event took place at a transformed parking lot somewhere in Lagos. Alternative soul artist, Brymo, captivated guests with his unique performance setting the mood with the roaring sounds of the drums much to the delight of the guests. The DJ booth took the shape of a well-lit black barrel and was the focal point for guests as the evening went on. The brazen sounds of the violin over the DJ’s set made for an incredible sonic experience. The bars served up a variety of cocktails, the Jameson Black Barrel signature serve Black Tonic & Orange, the classic Whiskey Sour, and all-time favourite Old Fashioned. The Hats & Tatts party would not have been complete without on-site tattoos from international artist (and Alani’s personal tattoo artist) Elie Akkary, he was the highlight of the evening with many guests opting to be permanently inked.

Jameson Black Barrel is a tribute to the Coopers, who painstakingly give their bourbon barrels an additional charring to reveal their untold richness and complexity. Charring is an age-old method that intensifies the taste of the whiskey. Jameson Master Cooper, Ger Buckley, a fifth-generation Midleton cooper was present to celebrate the launch of the super premium whiskey at the trade event and gave a riveting interactive demonstration on how to disassemble, raise and char the barrels used in making the Jameson Black Barrel. The event was well attended by key stakeholders, introducing them to the smooth tasting Jameson Black Barrel. The live music from the Cavemen was the perfect prelude to the interactive session and Brymo made a surprise appearance performing his hit singles with a live band.

The launch of the Jameson Black Barrel was like no other, from the taste down to the experience. It is now available to purchase, enjoy the smooth taste of Jameson responsibly.

N22b Paris cash: EFCC seizes passports of 34 top ex-Kwara State officials

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has seized the passports of 34 top officials who served under former Kwara State Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed over a N22 billion London-Paris Club refund.

Ten of them have been watch-listed to prevent them from fleeing the country, it was learnt yesterday.

The N22billion covers the N21billion drawn from the refund and the N1billion allegedly intercepted by the EFCC during the February/March elections. There are four cases on alleged mismanagement of billions of naira by some ex-office holders in the state.

A top source, who spoke in confidence, said: “There are monumental cases of fraud already uncovered in Kwara State during the tenure of the ex-governor. We may need to call for reinforcement to be able to conduct the different dimensions of the ongoing probe. So far, we have seized the international passports of 34 former commissioners and top government functionaries during the administration of ex-Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed.

“Out of the 34, about 10 former officers have been watch-listed to prevent them from escaping abroad. And if they travel out, we can effect their arrest in any jurisdiction. The list of the short-listed suspects has been sent to the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) to prevent them from acquiring new passports.”

In a statement yesterday, EFCC’s Head of Media & Publicity Tony Orilade said the agency’s Ilorin Zonal Office “has submitted the particulars of individuals on its watch-list and under investigations in the state to the Nigerian Immigration Service, NIS, Kwara State Command. It said the Acting EFCC Chairman Ibrahim Magu made this known through the Ilorin Zonal Head of the Commission Isyaku Sharu during a visit by the Comptroller of Immigration Service, Kwara State Command Edith Onyemenam.

The statement quoted Magu as saying those whose passports were seized had been trying to procure police reports to deceive the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) to issue them new passports. Magu said:

“The need to familiarise the NIS with the particulars of such personalities under EFCC’s investigation became necessary following intelligence at the disposal of the commission that some highly-placed individuals undergoing corruption probe and on the commission’s watch-list in the state have procured forged police reports with which they plan to apply for new international passports to escape from the country.

“Information at the disposal of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in Ilorin reveals that these highly placed individuals are planning to use forged police reports to re-apply for new international passports to flee the country in other to escape prosecution and justice. The commission urges you to use your good office to place these individuals under strict surveillance.”
