The year is moving swiftly; and according to fansandcelebs.blogspot.com here are the five celebrities who are making outstanding progress in the New Year!
Linda Ikeji: She is a phenomenon. With consistency and a lot of drive she has become the most successful blogger in Nigeria – in terms of influence and financial strength. Her blog is an authority on entertainment, social and lifestyle issues with one of the most vibrant comment sections! Just recently she announced she had purchased a new car for her pleasure- a 2011 Infiniti FX 35 worth N8 million. A well-deserved prize for hard work.
Ebuka Obi-Uchendu: Well-rounded young Nigerian with intelligence that spans different sectors of life! This year Ebuka became the host of the youth TV show- Rubbin’ Minds; giving it a vibrant feel! We are very impressed on how he has presented the show so far.
Tolu Oniru (Toolz): Sheer magic, this girl! It is impossible not to love her- a talented and seasoned entertainment entrepreneur! Toolz has her hand in all the remarkable sections of entertainment– from radio, to WebTV, compere, social network presence, and now acting. She is living the true Nigerian dream!
Rita Dominic: Rita premiered her movie The Meeting late last year and everything from then has been great! She is presently gracing two major fashion magazine covers on the stands – Complete Fashion and Wow – and she looks stunning on both! We can’t help but admire how flawless her skin is – totally free of blemish. Rock on, girl!
Gideon Okeke: He turned his Big Brother Nigeria platform to his own stage where everything is possible. This young man is living his dreams and a lot more. From Tinsel, to the red carpet, and now he is the host of the awesome show- The Money Drop!

5 Questions with Djinee!1. In the last five years there’s been a boom in the music industry. It seems everyone is singing! Is this a positive development?
It depends on how you look at it. On the side of unemployment and crime, which go together, music has helped as a source of employment. Not just for musicians, but for producers, songwriters, PR/artiste managers, lawyers and everyone associated to the main act. However, this doesn’t translate to creativity. But then the industry has shown that you don’t need to be overly creative to make a living here.
