Unofficial, Unscientific Ranking of the 2014 World Cup Kits. Where do you Think Nigeria's Kit Lies in the Ranking?

When the 2014 World Cup in Brazil kicks off on June 12, we'll be treated to one month of the world's best and most exciting football. But sports nerds of a certain stripe are also in for an added bonus: World Cup uniforms ("kits" in football parlance), which by many estimations represent the coolest gear the entire sports world has to offer.

The World Cup of style is dominated by football’s big-boy brands: Nike sponsors 10 of the World Cup's 32 teams; Adidas sponsors nine; Puma sponsors eight; Burrda, Marathon, Uhlsport, Joma and Lotto sponsor one apiece. But each company is busting out the best it has to offer for the millions of football fans (and apparel consumers) who will tune into the World Cup from points around the globe this summer.
We've been nerding out over World Cup kits all spring, so now it's time to gather them all together in one place. What follows is our very unscientific ranking of all 32 outfits (Okay, 31; Bosnia and Herzegovina isn't expected to officially release its duds until early June) as done by We've ordered them from here from snazziest to meh-iest.
Check them out, and then tell me  in the comments section below.

which are your favourites and what position you think Nigeria's kit should have been ranked.

Is Don Jazzy the King of Social Media or What? Hot on the Heels of Doro Bucci, Another Track - Adaobi is About to be Born on Instagram

It started out like a joke while Don Jazzy was away in Dubai for Tiwa and Tee Bills’ wedding. He posted a video of himself on Instagram singing the chorus to Doro Bucci and the whole of Instagram went berserk with his fans home and abroad uploading videos of themselves doing their rendition to the Doro Bucci song. The rest is history as they say, for we now have two tracks born out of that skit and they are both hott.

Today, the new track baking in the oven is called Adaobi and it is coming out following pretty much the same master-script: Don Jazzy yesterday uploaded a video on his Instagram page and explained that a friend of his called Adaobi came to visit him at the Mavin Headquarters and requested that he “make a jam with her name” he obviously decided to oblige her and the video was a prelude of the track as he promised that the full jam is coming soon.

Fast-forward just one day and there is already a promo pic for the track with the caption “food is almost ready”.

What do you think about this absolutely ingenious method that the Mavin Boss has adopted to introduce his new artistes to us the listening public?

Exclusive: Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde to Open Boutique Soon

Fans Blast Julius Agwu for Leaving Mum in a Squalid House.

Julius (the Genius) Agwu definitely did not bargain for the backlash that this picture elicited from fans when he posted it on Instagramyesterday. It was supposed to be a cute picture of a man and his mum who he is a carbon copy of and fans were supposed to gush and coo about the resemblance and his love for mummy.

The comments started off pretty much according to this script until someone asked him to get a new house for his mum. Some other comments followed this pattern with fans asking him to paint the house.

Iranian Billionaire Businessman Executed for $2.6 Billion Fraud

A billionaire businessman at the heart of a $2.6 billion state bank scam, the largest fraud case since the country’s 1979 Islamic Revolution, was executed Saturday, state television reported.

Video: Michael Jackson's Hologram Performs at Billboards Music Awards

A very, very human-looking “Jackson” was joined by a chorus of real (?) backup dancers as he performed the new tune “Slave to the Rhythm” from his recent posthumous album, “Xscape.” Jackson’s image was seen sitting on a throne, apparently part of the set decoration - then he started moving and you realized it was a hologram!

Dressed in red pants, white shirt, and gold and white striped jacket --with his hair pulled back while doing some complicated choreography - it looked incredibly real.

Whether it was tears of joy upon seeing their favourite artiste somehow back and performing, or tears of sadness because the image was so disturbing, some in the audience were crying.

The audience was cheering wildly, of course - though some could not figure out how to react. The camera panned to one group sitting there slack-jawed. A woman was shown wiping off tears streaming down her face. One guy was dancing though.

Watch the video after the cut.

Video: Nollywood Super Hero Flick; Oya Rise of the Orisha

Introducing Oya, Rise Of the Orisha. A movie being touted as an African Super Hero movie. With the Super Hero genre enjoying massive audience appeal at the moment, it’s no surprise that Nollywood will be eager for a piece of the action but I beg you please producers of this movie – do your homework well. Don’t just drop the same lukewarm, ill-thought out plots, and please please, get your special effects rights before dropping this movie.

That said, I'm super excited. I can’t wait to see the movie. The synopsis alone is ‘ghen ghen’ enough. Lol.

Death of 19 Year Old Student in Dubai; Mother, Aisha Falode Addresses Press Conference

The sad news broke late in February of the death of AIT’s well loved Sports presenter, Aisha Falode’s ONLY son, Toba Falode Dubai, The United Arab Emirate.

Tyler Fray as he was known to close friends was a student at a Higher Institution in the United Arab Emirate and it is alleged by his mother that he was pushed to his death from the 17th floor of an apartment building.

After a trip to Dubai where she carried out her own private investigations into the circumstances surrounding the death of her son, Aisha today called a press conference in Lagos where she indicted the Dubai police for covering up the murder of her son and reporting it as an accident which occurred as a result of his recklessness. She also lamented the failure of the Nigerian Government to intervene by demanding justice for her son.

Here’s how reported the press conference.

3 Celebs I'd Love to See Davido Collab With Next

Another day, another Davido collaboration. The Nigerian music superstar who shot to  lime light with his hit tune ‘Back when’ (incidentally a collaboration with rapper Naeto C) is well known and loved for his own solo efforts but also has quite a number of collaborations under his belt. The latest of these collaborations is with South African pop group, Mafikizolo.
So don’t get me wrong, I’m a big Davido fan, and I have nothing against his collaborations or that of any other artistes for that matter. I think collaborations give fans the best of both worlds all in one track!
So the reason for this article?  I was want to suggest 3 artistes that I think Davido should collaborate with. Just in case Davido looks at the music space and decides that there’s no one out there interesting enough to collaborate with, I humbly suggest that he seriously considers these three:

"As I always tell my daughters, a good education is something no one can take away from you. You always get to keep what you know."

Chris Brown to Spend his 25th Birthday in Prison.

While court officials plan a date for Chris Brown's probation violation hearing, the singer will spend his 25th birthday in jail.

Remember I blogged that Chris Brown put out a few tweets in support of the #BringBackOurGirls Campaign. How sweet of him to spare a thought for Nigeria despite his own challenges.

According to, the singer appeared in court Thursday afternoon with his attorney Mark Geragos looking exhausted in his bright orange prison uniform.

The judge ruled that Chris will remain in jail until May 9 while Geragos and Assistant District Attorney Mary Murray work on getting the singer to admit that he violated his probation.

Brown turns 25 on May 5.

If both parties don't settle a deal soon, the singer will spend up to four years in prison.

Chris we’re praying for you that you come out of this a stronger man.
