Aboriginal Music presents - Boogey: “One Ticket”
After a 2012 campaign that saw him drop classic verse after classic verse on
numerous hip hop projects, among them hip hop icon Modenine's "Occupy the
Throne" mixtape, Terry Tha Rapman’s “World Domination” mixtape and MI’s starstudded
“Illegal Music 2”—and delivering arguably the verse of the year (on
“Ridiculous”, off “Illegal Music 2”)—there’s no denying Boogey’s status as one of, if
not the, best MCs on the Nigerian hip hop scene. For those doubting Thomases
still among us, a listen to his new single, “One Ticket”, should be sufficient to alter
your misguided opinions, with immediate alacrity.
On “One Ticket”, Boogey displays his trademark lyrical dexterity, inviting listeners to
“take a walk in my cerebellum and get lost/In a labyrinth/passages/complex
thoughts” as he traces his evolution from his past introduction to hip hop, assesses
its present state, and envisions a future “signed to a label and getting
nominated/among all of the best in the continent/dominating/your radio
station/heavy rotation/many are waiting/for me to fall/I be telling em haters/to
watch a nigga get on”.
Driven by piercing (punch) lines and witty asides sprinkled with pop culture
references (“everybody wanna show us that they Mike Jack bad/but we ain’t
hearing you, your mic jack bad”), “One Ticket” is a hip hop purist’s dream. However,
the eerily futuristic production masterfully supplied by Kid Konnect, and
complemented by an irresistibly haunting hook from Morell, combine with
Boogey’s nimble flow to deliver an accessible, radio-friendly, suitable for all
listeners, yet which remains authentically hip hop.
“One Ticket”, is Boogey’s debut single under his new label, AbOriginal Music, the
label behind the monster hits "Omote" (by acoustic rock singer Ese Peters), and
"Olodo" (by rapper/producer Eclipse). It is also the official lead single from his
forthcoming EP, “Something About David”, scheduled for an April release.
Boogey – an abOriginal production.

The woman who put the nail in the coffin of Ashton Kutcher’s marriage to Demi Moore last night warned he could cheat again on his new girlfriend Mila Kunis.
Sara Leal advised Mila not to trust the "Two And A Half Men" star — and apologized to Demi for the affair.
“Once a cheater, always a cheater," Leal said. "If I were Mila I’d be careful, he doesn’t have the best track record. But she’s obviously willing to take that risk.
'If I was dating a guy that had cheated on his wife I would be a little suspicious'
- Sara Leal
“If I was dating a guy that had cheated on his wife I would be a little suspicious," she added. "It would probably make me extra crazy and extra insecure. I’d definitely keep an eye out.
It was in September 2011 that Leal slept with Ashton in a San Diego hotel room — on his sixth wedding anniversary, sparking the end of his marriage to Demi.
The 23-year-old Texas-born beauty claims he bedded her twice — and even wanted a threesome with her female friend.
Sara had been out drinking with girlfriends and met Ashton by chance as she headed to a pal’s room at the hotel.
It happened to be next to the actor’s lavish suite — and party girl Leal and her friends were invited in.

Aliko Dangote, GCON, President/Chief Executive, Dangote Group said “We are passionate about our country and we support projects that will bring us together as a people. It is important for all Nigerians to learn more about their history understand where they are coming from and feel proud about what we have achieved as a nation.”
The Journey to Amalgamation was commissioned for the evening by the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and marks the beginning of a broader array of content that will be produced to celebrate the Centenary and to share Nigerian history and culture with the world. The documentary was produced by OutSource Media, a content production company that has also been engaged to produce feature-length documentary films for the Centenary project.

She wasn’t born this way, and now Lady Gaga is definitely not on the right track.
The self-styled superstar has had to postpone concerts this week in Chicago, Detroit, Hamilton and Ontario due to synovitis, a severe joint inflammation.

She tweeted to her 34 million followers: “It will hopefully heal as soon as possible, I hate this. I hate this so much. I love you and I’m sorry.”
She revealed she has been hiding the chronic pain from her staff for over a month, and said “after last night’s performance I could not walk and still can’t”.
The remainder of the Born This Way Ball tour is expected to continue on schedule, beginning with a two-night stand in Philadelphia on February 19-20. Dates for the missed shows will be announced later.

After a long and bumpy career ride, Toni Braxton is finally hanging her towel in the world of music recording. The legendary voice has announced that she is retiring but not leaving the scene just yet. In fact, Toni says she wants to play more film roles but you might be shocked at what the sex icon wants to play.
For what I do I have to love it. I have to feel that excitement and it’s gone,” Braxton confessed. “I’m just not going to do any albums anymore; maybe touring occasionally here and there because I love performing, but not as much as I did in the past. But no new projects.
She goes on to speak about her son playing in movie roles with her:
“We had originally talked about him playing my son in the movie but I thought it was just too much for him. He’s autistic, high functioning, but still I thought it was too much his first endeavor.”
And then dropped this banger:
“I would like to play a lesbian,” she said. “I don’t know why. And do a whole make-out scene and the whole thing; just something completely different than people would expect from me. Not a lipstick lesbian either.”

GLOBAL LAUNCH OF ARISE NEWS
After two days of test broadcasting, a 24-hour international TV news operation set to rival existing giants in the global market will ‘soft launch’ today, February 4, 2013, broadcasting from its main News Centres in London, New York, Johannesburg and Lagos.
ARISE NEWS, will have a strong African footprint and serve underserved communities in the USA and other parts of the world, supported by a further eight bureaux around the globe stretching from Beijing to Rio de Janeiro.
A sister channel, ARISE 360, which will be entertainments-based with fashion, music sport and pay per view films, will start broadcasting toward the end of this year.
The 'arrival' of the network was announced by company executives in London and New York.
Chairman and Editor in Chief of ARISE NEWS and ARISE 360 is a leading African media entrepreneur, Nduka Obaigbena, owner and publisher of the global glossy style, fashion and culture magazine, ARISE, and the publisher of several other titles including one of Nigeria's biggest and most influential daily newspapers, THISDAY.
Mr Obaigbena said: ‘We will attract a global audience interested in emerging markets, developing countries and evolving politics. With headquarters and bureaux throughout Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas, we are ready to speak to our audience and give them a voice as well.
‘We are a new international network established to reflect the new world order not hardwired to the old and built to reflect the modern way news is consumed. Nowhere is this more important than in the emerging economies.’
Mr Obaigbena stressed: ‘There will be no state funding and no state agenda. Our coverage will be balanced, comprehensive and completely independent.
‘Our efforts will concentrate on robust journalism anchored on imperatives of the marketplace.’
Rob Beynon, a former executive producer with ITN and Sky News and now International Head of Operations at ARISE NEWS, said a team of TV news experts had been assembled from around the globe.
Lyne Pitts, a former Vice President of NBC News and an Executive Producer with CBS America is heading up the US operation from a vast studio complex in New York.
Ms Pitts explained: ‘We want to present programming that truly reflects the voices of America, not just a small slice but the racial, ethnic and socio-economic diversity of this country.
‘From that perspective ARISE NEWS will cover all issues education, health, politics and the criminal justice system. From Main Street to Wall Street, from the G8 to the Grammy's.’
Director of US New and Operations is award-winning broadcaster Gary Anthony Ramsay who has covered conflicts from Kosovo to Iraq.
Nigerian born John Chiahemen, a former Reuters bureau chief, has been appointed Managing Editor - and Head of Africa.
David Glencorse, a former Sky News anchorman, international reporter and Royal Television Society award winner, is the Global Editorial Director of the company.
Nick Jennings, a former Head of International News at Sky News is Director of News and News Gathering.
And Gavin Hill, until recently an award winning ITV producer of documentaries is Director of Features.
James Blue, formerly an Emmy and Peabody award-winning producer with ABC News Nightline and NBC Today has been appointed Director of Current Affairs and Special Projects based in Washington.
Said Mr Blue: 'We want to tell the untold story, the stories of achievement and celebration. So much is happening in the world of business and so much is happening in the world of culture and sports. We want to cover all of that and provide people with stories on our stations they would never see anywhere else.'
Jeff Koinange, an Emmy award winning reporter and formerly CNN's star Africa reporter will be based in Johannesburg as an anchorman and correspondent.
Debbye Turner-Bell, a former CBS correspondent (and former Miss America) will be a regular anchor for ARISE America.
South African born Heather Scott, a former Sky News anchorwoman and business correspondent, will take on the role of roving anchor and correspondent.
And Neil Stainsby, formerly a senior director with the BBC has been appointed Global Lead Director across ARISE NEWS.
Michael Wilson, formerly Business Editor with Sky News is Global Business and Economics Editor with ARISE NEWS.
He said: 'We at ARISE NEWS see Africa as the new frontier and we know it is open for business. The markets feel the same.
In the last decade Africa's overall growth rates have quietly approached those of Asia. According to projections from the IMF, on average Africa will have the world's fastest growing economy of any country over the next five years. ARISE News will uniquely cover the changing face of Africa with in depth analysis.’
ARISE NEWS was welcomed at the recent World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland, by senior politicians and business leaders around the globe.
Former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown said ARISE NEWS would give a boost to young people living in Africa.
‘The future is in the hands of young Africans themselves. The more channels like yours that can make young people proud of Africa, the more we’ll see young people seizing the opportunity’.
Trevor Ncube, Executive Deputy Chairman of the Mail and Guardian Media Group in South Africa said: ‘ARISE NEWS is the fulfilment of a dream we’ve had for some time. Unless we begin to tell our own story we’ll continue to complain about the perceptions held about Africa in different parts of the world’.
African oil baron, Adewale Tinubu said: ‘I think it’s wonderful that ARISE NEWS is launching. It’s a first class step in the right direction and a logical progression from ThisDay newspaper and ARISE magazine.’
ARISE NEWS will be live on cable, satellite, mobile devices, and the internet twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.
'Wherever and whenever there is a major breaking news story, we will cover it aggressively, especially on the under-reported continent of Africa,' said Global Editorial Director, David Glencorse.
"We will take advantage of the latest technology and social media to bring real-time interaction with newsmakers and news events. Our international focus is on global news and current affairs from a distinct perspective, while ARISE America will focus on US news and current affairs through the eyes of communities currently ignored by mainstream media'.
ARISE News will offer advertisers a unique reach amongst an affluent and influential audience.
Following the test broadcasts of last Thursday and Friday, the ‘soft launch’ phase will begin today (Feb 4) and lead to a full broadcast operation in March.
ARISE News is broadcasting across Europe on SKY Channel 234. The company is currently negotiating other major distribution deals across the globe.
