BRIDE & GROOM NARROWLY ESCAPE DEATH ON THE WAY FROM THEIR WEDDING RECEPTION

A bride narrowly escaped death in an auto crash while on her way from her wedding. The accident involving a NNPC  tanker with number plate XG 321 MKA, a cargo truck and two saloon cars happened at about 4: 45pm on Saturday, close to the Otedola bridge, Alausa, on Lagos/Ibadan Expressway.

Our reporter who witnessed the accident said the NNPC truck, while descending the slop from Alausa at top speed, could not hold its break. It then ran into the first car and squashed the second one against the cargo truck. The bride and her husband were said to have jumped out of their car.

FEMI KUTI NOMINATED FOR THE 4TH TIME AT THE GRAMMY AWARDS

Afrobeat star, Femi Kuti has been nominated for the Grammy Awards for the 4th time.He has been nominated in the ‘World Music‘ category for his 2013 ‘No Place For My Dream‘ album released under Knitting Factory Records. Others in the category include French group Gipsy Kings, SA male choral group Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Indian musician Ravi Shankar.

In 2003, Femi got his first Grammy Award nomination but lost out to Panamanian salsa singer RubĂ©n Blades. He was nominated again in the same category in 2010 but lost to US banjo player  Bela Fleck. In 2011, Femi once again lost the award to Malian band Tinariwen for the album Tassili.

Femi Kuti has however grown less optimistic about getting a Grammy Award. In 2011, he deliberately skipped out on attending the awards show stating that he ‘didn’t want to raise his hopes high’. I really hope he wins this time around, he deserves it.

Meanwhile, rapper Jay Z leads the list with nine nominations including best rap album.
