FuseODG Calls Out Nivea For Controversial Billboards

Ghanaian singer FuseODG slams Nivea for controversial billboard in favor of skin bleaching.

The ‘Azonto’ crooner criticized the cosmetic and beauty brand for imploring Africans to bleach their skin for a lighter shade. Fuse wants all similar billboards erected in Ghana and other African countries to be taken down while urging folks to stop buying Nivea products.

Dear Nivea, Kindly take down these billboards you have placed all over our beloved countries in Africa. I saw this one with my own eyes today in Ghana and we love our complexion the way it is. And if you don’t take these down. We will. Every African everywhere should stop buying any Nivea product. Tag the Nivea branch from your country so they understand how foolish this is! With love.

“For us to build the country of our dreams, for us to make Nigeria a truly great nation, a nation that is able to feed and house its citizens, a nation with a stable currency, we must embrace science and technology.

Channels TV State House Correspondent, Chukwuma Onuekwusi Is Dead

Popular  Channels Television’s State House correspondent, Chukwuma Onuekwusi, has died at 55. According to reports, he died in the early hours of today May 23rd.

Chukwuma was a graduate of the University of Nigeria Nsukka, He joined Channels TV in 1998 and he’s survived by wife and 3 Children. May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace, Amen.

Meanwhile some of his friends and colleagues have taken to social media to pay tributes to him.

“I have lost a colleague, friend and brother. Chukwuma Onuekwusi was a good man. He went beyond being a colleague on the beat, he qualified to be called a friend indeed. He was always calling me, “My friend, Olalekan” and I always responded by saying ‘Chukwu, Chukwu, Chukwu’,” Olalekan Adetayo of PUNCH, wrote on Facebook.

“He was a very hardworking man, one of the attributes that attracted him to me. He was always holding the Channels Television-branded microphone as if his life depended on it. He did that to the point that we joined some people who paid homage to former President Jonathan on a Christmas Day and the former President could not hide his feeling. ‘You are still holding this your thing today again’, Jonathan said, referring to Chukwuma and his trademark microphone.

“I met Chukwuma closely for the first time a few minutes before I got my accreditation to the villa a few years back. We met at the FirstBank in CBD Abuja. There was a long queue and people were impatient. An elderly man took on a young Bank teller who he felt was too slow and called him ‘Baba Go Slow’. Chukwuma turned back and corrected the man politely. ‘That is not fair sir’.”

On her part, Juliana Obalonye, state house correspondent of The Sun, wrote: “My brother and friend, a thorough professional to the core and a lover of God. To say I’m pained by your death is an understatement. You did assure you will stand up from that sick bed and we will join you for thanksgiving.

“But we are consoled by this scripture, therefore, we do not mourn like those without hope.

“Rest In Peace my brother, I will miss you sourly!”
