Nigerian Celebrity Blog: Timaya The Egberi Papa of Bayelsa
Timaya has become a force. A force that operates through music.
He is known everywhere in Nigeria and even Africa has taken notice.
Timaya is also known in almost all quarters as the Egberi Papa of Bayelsa.
What that means is that he is the story teller of his own state, in fact the father of them all.
But how true is that?
The origin of Timaya’s music career saw him singing about issues affecting his people.
We all remember the song on Odi and other similar songs, but that was in the past.
In that not so distant past, Timaya was quite concerned with situations affecting his environment and people in that environment.
But is this still the fact when we look at him?
Timaya has since stopped talking about the stories of the people and even more the story of his people.
How can he be the father story teller of Bayelsa and yet is silent on issues that his loud voice would have helped exposed?
He should be reminded of his beginning.
He should remember that to be the Egberi Papa he must tell the stories around him.
Those sad situations troubling his people in Bayelsa that is no different from the Odi Massacre.
His voice could help the world see the light about such issues and maybe from there render help.
As a story teller his story should flow through his songs.
* Political Corruption
*The way forward
The list goes on.
For Timaya to remain the Egberi Papa he should really begin to be the mouth piece of the people, his people!
There is no better time to start over again in this regard but now.

- Nigerian lawyers seek £1m from Oxford Varsity? for ‘wrong definition’
Some Nigerian lawyers are seeking one million pounds from the University of Oxford, over alleged wrong definition of the words “Mortgagee and Mortgagor,” saying the words are as contained in the Oxford mini reference dictionary and Oxford English mini dictionary, Vanguardngr reports.
The lawyers, Messrs Ogedi Ogu, and Emmanuel Ofoegbu have sent a letter of notice of intention to sue to the Registrar, University of Oxford, Wellington, London. They are demanding the sum of £1m for the losses they suffered in their transactions, when they relied on the said wrong definition of the words. .
Specifically, the lawyers assert that the Oxford English mini dictionary and the Oxford mini reference dictionary defined the word “Mortgagee” to mean a borrower and the word “Mortgagor to mean a lender. .
They further assert that the said dictionary definitions are wrongful and misleading as in a Mortgage transaction, the word “Mortgagee” connotes a lender while a “Mortgagor signifies a borrower. .
Consequently, the lawyers are demanding that the University of Oxford pays to them the sum of £1m for the wrong definitions of words in the said dictionaries for which they acted to their own detriment.
