And then on the foreign scene, we’ve got Willow Smith with the video for her song Whip My Hair. The 9 year old has tween heartthrob, Justin Bieber promoting her song on Twitter even as she has taken lots of flack for everything from her dress sense to her age and record label.

The little cutie looks so much like her big bro Jaden who featured in Bieber’s song Never say Never which was part of the soundtrack for Jaden’s movie Karate Kid

Today is Michael Jackson day- at least, his death-day! (How macabre!)

X2 pullout in today’s NEXT Daily is dedicated to… (yeah, you got it!) the KING OF POP!

Rewind 365 days and you had Facebook profile pictures, ring-tones, even car plates being dedicated to the KING! Today is not even “almost” equivalent. For a remembrance of the one and only Wacko Jacko, it is more or less quiet. Fewer people give a damn this year than last year.

No matter… because the people that matter do. Like his Mom, Katherine Jackson, who just published a “coffee table” book of pictures about the life and times of her dear son amidst some controversies.

It is the first World Cup on African soil and one would have thought that for the opening ceremony at least, all or most of the featured artists would be from Africa. The opening ceremony was one huge concert featuring music stars from the US alongside K’naan, Hugh Masakela, Angelique Kidjo and other African artistes but non from Nigeria.

It pained me seriously that they didn’t allow our Naija represent. Here are videos of some of the best performances (my choice).

For a theme song this was too cool. Who can remember these guys who sang the original (below)?
Loved Shakira’s gorilla hop.

I loved the next one for three reasons: Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela, Lira’s dress and the time she had to pull it up. (Okay, that’s four! ; ) ) I wonder why she dey fear? Is she not South African? They have the most famous breasts in the world!

K’naan waves his flag. Still loved the video even if will.i.am. looked lost waving a Brazillian flag.
