“The World Has Lost A Brilliant, Creative Comedian” – Obasanjo Speaks On Baba Sala’s Death

Published

on

Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has spoken out on the death of Nollywood actor, Moses Olaiya, better known by his stage name, Baba Sala, who recently passed on.

Former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo, has described the death of ace comedian and actor, Moses Olaiya Adejumo, otherwise known as Baba Sala, as “a loss of world’s most life-enhanc­ing, brilliant and creat­ive comedian”.

Obasanjo’s position was contained in a statement signed by his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi and made available to newsmen on Monday, in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital.

According to Obasanjo in the tribute entitled: ‘Chief Moses Adejumo – A Worthy Nigerian To Be Remembered­’, Baba Sala lived to perfect his art and entertain his live and adoring audiences.

The tribute reads further:-

“I received the news of the demise of my friend and my brother, Chief Moses Adejumo, popularly called Baba Sala, with shock and yet with a lot of reflection and admiration for someone I knew did his best to make our country, Nigeria, and indeed our world a better place.

“While I have accepted his transition as a course we all must take, I wish and pray that his immediate family, all the people close to him in one way or the other will have the fortitude to bear this loss. My heart and that of my family remain with them.

“Over the years, I have followed, with very keen interest, Chief Adejumo’s distinguished career as a foremost playwright, filmmaker, musician and comedian. He was a true renaissance man.

“Along with being one of the finest comedy impressionists in the country, he was a talented actor and portrait artist. I recall, with nostalgia, that he served selflessly in the development of Nigeria’s theatre and performing arts.

“Easily one of our most prolific dramatists­, the late Chief Adejumo grossed dozens of­ performed plays, playlets and videos over­ the years, among which are Orun Mooru (19­82), Aare Agbaye (198­3), Mosebolatan (1985­), Obee Gbona (1989), Diamond (1990 Home video), Agba Man (1992, Home Video), Return Match (1993, Home Video), Ana Gomina (1996, home video), Tokunbo (1985, TV).

“Little wonder therefore that his patriarchal contribution to the art, professional and humanistic exertions have been acknowledged and rewarded with several national and international awards, notably his first award for his film Mosebolatan at the Performing Art Awards Night (1986 edition) and the distinguished natio­nal honour of Member of the Order of the Niger, MON, which was conferred on him by m­e during my administration as the Nigeria’s Military Head of State in 1978.

“Our dear nation will surely be the better for it if only the present generation would emulate the enviable professional qualities of the late Chief Adejumo.”

He further pointed out that “Baba Sala was hardworking man of great integrity and h­ighly cultured personality. He was a symbol of humility, moderation and selfless ser­vice. I have had the supreme joy and privilege of hosting him in my private residence in Ota, Abuja and Abeokuta on different occasions.

“The world has lost a most life-enhancing, brilliant, creative comedian with an operatically trained voice, who just wanted to make people happy. He lived to perfect his art and entertain his live and adoring audiences.

“While we would be thankful to the Almighty God that he lived to a moderately ripe old age, the family, no doubt, would be quite naturally in deep grief over the earthly­ exit of its adorable patriarch. But his death is also a huge loss to the nation and, therefore, by this message, I am not only joining thousands of Nigerians to mourn but also paying deser­ving tribute to this outstanding Nigerian and quintessential man”.

Some of the Things You Should Consider When Choosing a Property Maintenance Company


All types of buildings require maintenance. Whether residential or commercial, it is very important to take care of the property so as to have it in shape for many years to come. You therefore need a professional service provider so as to guarantee quality at all times. The company can conduct routine cleaning, emergency repairs, and so on. You need to be careful when making a choice to avoid unnecessary damages.

When making a choice, you should ensure that you end up with the plan that suits you best. In many cases, you can enter into a contract with the company in question. You also need to choose between the short term and the long term kind of contracts. In some cases, there are some benefits that may be associated with the long term kind of contracts and you may find that they are much gentler to your pocket. A reliable company should eliminate your worry and do a satisfactory job.

Some of the things worth considering include:

Experience

It is important to check just how long a company has been in operation. While the duration doesn’t always give the whole picture, it is highly unlikely that a company will still be up and standing for a long time if they offer substandard services. If you are looking for a long term contract, it is essential to find out how the company recruits its workers so as to be certain that they are indeed most suitable for maintenance.

Having a company that has been in the industry for quite some time may mean that they are indeed the perfect option for you. They will know most of the problems that face buildings and therefore will deal with them effectively as they arise.

Client portfolio

A good company should have a client portfolio in existence. Such clients will help you decide what kind of company you are actually dealing with. You can tell whether they are professional or not and whether they can handle your kind of building. Where there are a great number of clients, it means that the company is indeed a favorite among many and therefore is a reliable option.

Reviews

This is one of the most effective methods that you can apply. Customer reviews are available online. Going through the reviews can help you choose the perfect company before you hire. You can gauge whether they can meet all the requirements that you may have.

Proximity

Some of the repairs and maintenance that you may need can be urgent and therefore may need immediate attention. As such, you need to find a company that is near you and one that can respond in the shortest time possible even with short notice. This can only work out of the company you select is close to you. Consider this too.

Terms of the Agreement

You need to consider quotation; duration of service, number of times the maintenance will be carried out, as well as the kind of services that are included. You should also know the obligations that you have to the company. These are terms that need to be clearly understood so as to ensure that your contract runs smoothly.

How To Be A Landlord Without The Headache

How To Be A Landlord Without The Headache


It seems like just about everyone reaches a point in their life when they want to be a landlord. From reality TV shows to glamorous stories of how a few stand-out individuals went from working full-time to making hundreds of thousands of dollars off their rental properties, there’s really no wonder why people think being a landlord is so lucrative and enjoyable. After all, at first thought, it seems like owning a bunch of properties and waiting for the rent checks to come in each month would be so carefree and simple.

Not to mention that you could make a lot of money by just making a bank-run every month.

Of course, in reality, life as a landlord is by no means simple.

Landlords have to deal with everything from small hiccups in the plumbing system to electrical problems, house updates, damage caused by tenants, and so much more. In many cases, they also have to provide lawn care for their properties, schedule maintenance check-ins, and pay for all kinds of repairs–most of which is likely caused by tenants who were on their way out. Staying on top of due dates and deadlines is yet another difficulty, and when you begin looking at the long list of responsibilities a landlord is expected to handle, it becomes apparent that it might not be such an incredible option after all.

But, despite all the headache, it remains very lucrative. And, if you get in the right tenants, you can save yourself a lot of trouble. However, even with these things in mind, landlords still have to be sure that the lawn is taken care of, that the house is maintained, that repairs are fixed in a timely manner, and that all issues tenants bring up are looked after. This means taking a lot of phone calls, scheduling a lot of handyman visits, and even fronting money for these things out-of-pocket. Typically, the rent checks are enough to keep landlords inspired to keep going since this hard-work surely pays off at the end of the money, but in-between paychecks, it can be difficult to handle everything.

That’s where a property maintenance company often comes into play. Whether you own one property or many, a property maintenance company can help you make sure that everything is taken care of quickly, easily, and with a smile. Rather than you spending countless hours talking to tenants, scheduling repairs, and meeting with the people you hire, a property maintenance company will take over that role and basically handle all of the headache of being a landlord.

Once you give the number to your tenants, they will from then on call the company to report any issues with the property. The company will then be responsible for handling all needed maintenance and repairs, and then giving you a summary of what’s going on each week. In other words, their job is to relieve your stress and assure you that everything is taken care of.

The end result is that you have more time and energy to put into marketing your properties, worrying about due dates, and cashing checks.

PREMIER LEAGUE!! Paul Scholes Blast Man United For Signing Alexis Sanchez (Read What He Said)

Published

on

Former Manchester United midfielder, Paul Scholes, has hit out at the club, over their motives for buying Alexis Sanchez in January.

Sanchez has struggled since arriving at Old Trafford from Arsenal and has come in for some heavy criticism for his performances.

Scholes, speaking to ESPN, believes the Chilean attacker simply does not fit into the mould of a United player and he is convinced he was only signed to spite Manchester City.

“I know he has qualities and has been a good player but I never saw him as a United player.

“I saw him as a bit selfish, someone who played for himself sometimes. I didn’t think he was a player that we needed, especially for that type of money. How would we be able to get rid of him now when he earns those wages?

“The signing felt like it happened just to stop Man City signing him.

“It feels like every player who comes into the team struggles. I feel like we could sign Lionel Messi at the moment and he’d struggle in this team,” he said.
