Top 10 Nigerian hits of 2012



10. Love me   – Tiwa Savage
The song was released late in 2011 and it was Tiwa’s second hit single after kele kele love fortunate to spill into 2012. It further heralded the power in Tiwa’s voice with that powerful hook and smashing chorus. Ladies particularly loved this song because it told them all they wanted to hear about love; real or unreal. Tiwa stormed concerts with it and scored high on weekly charts, that’s why it’s on our top ten.
9. Catch cold  -   Flavour ft Tiwa Savage
It was one of the greatest collaborations of the year; winning Channel O’s Most Gifted R&B video of the year award. What do you expect when two extremely talented artists wield forces together? This magical number is pushed even harder by it’s music video, shot in high definition with that famous kiss that stole display pictures on phones for weeks. Flavour in this track made falling in love look so easy. The song raged airwaves months; no one could get enough of it. It seats pretty at our number nine position.
8. Pakurumo – Wizkid
If you wanted to boogie on down in yoruba then this was the track to leap on to. The 22 year old  got hearts racing in this fast paced number; a party favourite never far from Disk Jockeys. A smoking hot auto-tuned track from his Super Star album with solid beats and a delightful video that quickly got anyone laughing and dancing.

Simon Confirms he's dating Carmen

          Mo wonder he's smiling! Simon Cowell gets a hug from Carmen Electra as he films The X Factor on December 12 in Hollywood We're dating! The couple leave Cecconi's restaurant in West Hollywood in September

Love can be found in strange places... who would have thought :) they look happy.

12 ways to make Money from Home


This will be useful for those who are looking to start a small business (especially mothers) from home. Its tough to joggle work and parenting, so I found some ideas that should trigger your money making desires from the comfort of your home.
You'll need a few things to help you set up your home office.

1. Free lance writing: Sell your words
You can start with local magazines and newspaper houses either online or in print. The market for articles is vast, and there is enough work to go round.
you'll need a computer, fast internet access, a comfortable work space. To begin you will have to look for work, sign up on sites like Jobberman (if you are in Nigeria) or sites like Guru and Freelancer ,if you are outside Africa. You must be committed and persistent, do your best and produce good copy.
2. Classes: Sell your knowledge
Another way to earn money from home is by selling your skills and knowledge by teaching classes. example if you are a fitness guru, you love cooking, gardening, making candles, bead making, making soaps, languages etc. If you are consistent, you'll have people signing up over and over again.
To do this successfully, you must consider the following:

* The Idea: Your clients will want to know exactly what they are paying for, you will have to be precise, narrow down your topic.
* The Schedule: Choose days that will work for you, that way you can dedicate your full attention to your class, remember you are making commitments that will last for weeks/months, you don't want classes clashing and having to cancel a class. Also consider your clients and what schedule will likely work for them.
* The Price: start by doing a bit of research and compare your skills/talents with other established firms and set a price accordingly.
* Deals: In addition to establishing a per-class price, offer deals that will entice more clients to sign up for other classes by adding incentives that will create more value and offer more for their money.
* The Ads: You can begin with word of mouth through family and friends, however, eventually you will have to post flyers in churches, supermarkets, malls and other public places. Also, the use of social media will help put word out about your classes.

3. Gardening: Sell your fruits and veggies
If you have planting space around where you live, you may want to start growing some fruits and vegetables. i would suggest you begin with crops like pepper, garden egg, tomatoes, onions,okra,etc depending on what crops thrive in your location. consider selling to friends and neighbours first then you can expand accordingly. 

farmers market vegetables

4. Arts and Crafts: Sell your creativity
If you can create beautiful things, then you are in business. Arts and craft is known as one of the reliable form or income earning, the growing trends of home-made designs and vintage is at a constant rise. You need to know what others are selling and decide what wares you will offer. Your customers must be able to choose from a wide range of collections, so you should have between 100 -200 items of choice. Take photos of your items for a good visual effect for your customers, it has to be eye catching. its very important.
