Family Affair! Cousins Battle Each Other For 10million Naira And Brand New Car On ‘Star The Winner Is’


The quest for the mouth-watering grand prize of Star lager sponsored TV game show ‘Star The Winner Is’ got more exciting when two contestants who interestingly are cousins, went head to head in a duel battle for the brightest voice during the weekend.

Contestants, Jahtell Ilem and Blessing Ogainyo both equally astounding singers put all family interests aside and went up against each other in the fiercest duel round of the night. Blessing however surrendered after she witnessed the vocal prowess Jahtell commanded, walking away with 100,000 naira.

Plus sized beauty, Jahtell, turned out the clear choice of the 101 jury members in that round and subsequently for the episode making it through to the semifinal round after beating another opponent Daniel Buba in the final round of the night.

With a breath-taking rendition of BoyzIImen classic, I’ll make love to you and an outstanding delivery of Jenifer Hudson’s I’m changing,Jahtell won the hearts of the audience, viewers at home and most certainly, Almighty 101 jury members on the show.

Daniel who was a strong contender delivered remarkable performances like Seal’s Kiss From A Rose after which he however made a smart choice to walk away with 400,000 naira offered by host, Uti Nwachukwu in the final round, leaving Jahtell to move on when he lost confidence in his performance.

Gabriel Udogu, Josephine Onyejebose and Ese Amadasun also sang their hearts out to the delight of the audience and jury members but not as impressive as Jahtell Ilem who undoubtedly deserved to wear the winner’s crown for the night.

Jahtell joins Philip, Brenda, Happiness, Rhema and Naomi in the battle for 10million naira and a brand new car in the semi final round.

Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Others Win Big At MTV VMAs

As JAY Z and Blue Ivy Present “Michael Jackson Video Vanguard” Award to BEYONCÉ

MTV Base hosted an epic night of music with unforgettable performances, unpredictable moments and heartfelt messages as the 2014 “MTV Video Music Awards” (24 August).

The awards, which held at the Forum, Inglewood in California had BEYONCÉ welcome MTV and the audience to earth shattering performances of hits from her visual album “*BEYONCÉ”. After BEYONCÉ broke Justin Timberlake’s 2013 record for the longest VMA performance ever, JAY Z and Blue Ivy unexpectedly joined her on stage for a highly emotional moment as her family presented her with the “Michael Jackson Video Vanguard” Award.

Humbled and speaking through tears, BEYONCÉ thanked God, her daughter, her “beloved,” MTV and her fans. She also won the most awards of the evening, taking home Moonmen in three different categories, including “Best Collaboration” for “Drunk in Love” and “Best Video With a Message” for “Pretty Hurts”.

Miley Cyrus shocked the world by leaving her twerking ways behind her and delivering a heartfelt message as she took away the “Video of the Year,” award. A former homeless youth in Los Angeles named Jesse took the stage in her place to accept her award on behalf of the 1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the U.S.  From the side of the stage, Miley teared up watching him make a call to action, directing fans to her Facebook page to join the fight to end youth homelessness.  Jesse ended with an emotional quote, “a dream you dream alone is only a dream.  A dream you dream together is a reality.”


The 2014 “MTV Video Music Awards” opened with the summer’s fiercest female threesome. Ariana Grande kicked it all off by starting an intergalactic dance party with her Zedd-produced hit, “Break Free”. Grande emerged from a spaceship before being joined by the Queen of Hip-Hop, Nicki Minaj, who
hit the stage to unleash “Anaconda” on the world with an eye-popping, rump-shaking performance.

Finally, British singer-songwriter Jessie J joined the titillating trio to bring the house down with their smash-hit, “Bang Bang”. Nicki returned with a wardrobe malfunction that left her clutching her dress.

Before introducing “Best Hip-Hop Video”, Common asked the VMA audience for a moment of silence to mark the events taking place in Ferguson, Missouri, with some members of the in-house audience responding by
spontaneously raising their hands overhead.

Introduced by super-fan Kim Kardashian West, British singing sensation and first-time VMA performer Sam Smith mesmerized the audience - and the Kardashian-Jenner sisters - as he and his band orchestrated a soulful
rendition of his powerful hit ballad “Stay with Me”.

Multi-platinum global R&B star Usher also delivered a funk-filled performance of his single “Give it to You,” bringing the audience to their feet and surprising everyone when *Nicki Minaj* once again returned to join
him onstage during their rhythmically charged set.
