After 20 Years Of Running, Yahoo! Messenger Announce Its Finally Shutting Down.

Yahoo Messenger, the messaging app that many people probably didn’t know still existed, is finally shutting down for good, according to Business Insider.

The app is shutting down on July 17, after a 20-year run. Yahoo, which was acquired by Verizon in 2017, didn’t give an explanation for shutting its messenger down, but given the sheer amount of already popular messaging apps on the market, it was probably hard to compete with the existing product.

Yahoo is currently beta testing an invite-only messaging app called Squirrel, which could serve as a replacement for those who will miss Messenger.

However, since Squirell’s release last month, it has been downloaded fewer than 5,000 times, compared to the nearly half-million downloads of Yahoo Messenger during the last quarter, according to Randy Nelson, the head of mobile insights at Sensor Tower.

“We know we have many loyal fans who have used Yahoo Messenger since its beginning as one of the first chat apps of its kind,” Yahoo wrote in a press release.

“As the communications landscape continues to change over, we’re focusing on building and introducing new, exciting communications tools that better fit consumer needs.

“There currently isn’t a replacement product available for Yahoo Messenger,” the company writes. “We’re constantly experimenting with new services and apps, one of which is an invite-only group messaging app called Yahoo Squirrel (currently in beta).”

Squirrel is a group messaging app Yahoo started testing last month.

Yahoo Messenger was one of the first instant messaging apps created, but it struggled to keep up with modern apps like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Snapchat.

Five Nigerian songs Inspired by Shaku Shaku Vibe.

From the tail end of 2017 straightforward to 2018, Shaku-shaku vibe became a hot cake in the Nigerian music industry.
Not just because of the unique dance step that came with it, but also the huge acceptance the vibe got from the street.
At a point, many Nigerian artistes were struggling to make their own shaku-shaku song just to make wave from the trend. Obviously, it seems the street has had enough.
Here Are Top 5 Songs Inspired By Shaku-Shaku Vibe;
1. Idowest – Omo Shepeteri
This is one of the songs that popularized shaku-shaku vibe in Nigeria.
Omo Shepeteri” became a street anthem in 2017 with Dammykrane and Slimcaseassisting Idowest on the song.
2. DJ Enimoney – Diet
This song dropped at a time most Nigerians noticed the dopeness of shaku-shaku vibe.
DJ Enimoney who is the rightful owner of the song did a perfect job choosing Slimcase,Reminisce and Tiwa Savage to work with on the song.
No other set of artistes would have done it better. With Mavin First Lady, Tiwa Savage on the song, Diet came out as a perfect combination of porch and street shaku-shaku lyrics.
3. Reminisce – Problem
It is so obvious that the LRR boss was inspired by the trending shaku-shaku vibe on the song “Problem“.
From all his social media activities before the release of the song, Reminisce made it know that Nigeria’s music Industry trend has change “Tempo” again from slow “Pon Pon” beat to uptempo shaku-shaku sound.
“Pon Pon le n se tele but tempo change Eti ni problem”
Well, it is still not clear, who has problem between ‘Pon Pon’ artistes and ‘Shaku Shaku’ artistes.
4. Olamide – Science Student
Science Student” was first 2018 song and first 2018 hit for Olamide. The song almost swept other buzzing shaku-shaku songs off their feet to the extent that the YBNL boss began to seem like the real pioneer of Shaku-shaku sound.
In the real sense, the song was inspired by the Shaku-shaku songs by fast-rising singers which were already making the wave. As a matter of fact, Olamide was the first celebrity artiste to do a shaku-shaku inspired song.
5. Mr Real – Legbegbe
As inspired by the Kleptomania story of  Seun Egbegbe, Mr. Real released “Legbegbe” towards mid-2017 with a shaku-shaku beat.
The iPhone theft case of Seun Egbegbe gave the song more attention and buzz.

Joke:- It Will Repeat Itself

Joke:- It Will Repeat Itself

An elderly man boarded a bus at a Bus Stop in Lagos heading home to Ikeja. Typical of Lagos bus stops, and the rushes by commuters to get on board, one of the commuters who boarded was this 80-year-old man, once on board he struggled and got a seat.

Just as he sat down, he discovered his wallet had been stolen from his back pocket. As the bus moved on quietly into the night, a loud voice was heard from the back of the bus, “WHOEVER TOOK MY WALLET SHOULD RETURN IT OR ELSE WHAT HAPPENED IN1967 WILL REPEAT ITSELF!”.

He repeated this again and again much louder. Sudden dead silence and fear engulfed the bus. Voices in whispers were heard on the bus asking, “What happened in 1967?”

Everyone in the bus started begging, “Whoever did this should please bring the wallet out.”

The man who stole the wallet became afraid, he quickly dropped the wallet and kicked it near the old man and in a short while, a young lady shouted pointing underneath the seats, “Sir, see the wallet.”

Great sigh of relief it was with the find. The old man came down at Ikeja and continued his homeward journey. An inquisitive young youth corper who was on the same bus, who also came down, walked briskly close and asked the old man, “Sorry sir, but what Happened in 1967?”

The man replied, “Son, in 1967 a similar event occured and you know what… I TREKKED HOME.”

Funny Joke: John Bull

 

Yes, it’s another beautiful day that the Lord has made and we will be glad and rejoice in it. Very vital message though because, these days, children are doing things. Remind me of Johnbull that year. Check out; Felix went to Johnbull’s house, knocked at the door, which was slightly open but, got no response. So, he knocked again. This time around, he heard a faint “come in”. Opening the door wide, he went inside. On getting inside, he saw Johnbull’s dad, sitting down on the couch, hand on jaw and in deep thought, not even bothering to look at the just entered guest. After some moment of silence;

Felix : Good afternoon Sir

Papa Johnbull : Good afternoon my son
Again silence…

Felix : Sir, I came to report one of your son

Papa Johnbull : Johnbull, abi?

Felix : Yes Sir

Silence…

Felix : Sir, last two weeks, while we were on break, someone saw him taking my N10,000 lesson fees from my school bag, no one has seen him again since then

Papa Johnbull (still in the same position) : N10,000? You are even lucky sef, last week, is it not his mother N50,000 that he stole?

Felix : JESUS! N50,000

Papa Johnbull : (same position) You are shouting Jesus, three days ago is it not my N100,000 he stole?

Felix : (falling down on the rug and wailing) Ah! Why? Johnbull why? Sir, didn’t you people report him to the police?

Papa Johhbull : We did and, they arrested him

Felix : Good for him, am very sure that, after some days at the Nigeria Police station, he will surely change his ways

Papa Johnbull : (same position) They returned him back the next day

Felix : How possible is that? What happened?

Papa Johnbull : They said that, he stole their check point money.

Buhari Awards Gani Fawehinmi Second Highest Nigerian Honour, GCON.

 While many Nigerians are grappling with the new public holiday declared for the celebration of June 12 as the new National Democracy Day and the concomitant recognition of Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale “Olanbiwoninu” Abiola as a former President of Nigeria, many has missed the declaration of posthumous award to late human right activist and legal luminary, Chief Ganiyu Oyeshola Fawehinmi, SAN the second highest honour of Nigeria, typically given to Vice presidents and chief judges of the federation, GCON.

(Too Bad) Tomas kalas scores as Nigeria loses (1-0) against Czech Republic.

Tomas Kalas scored the only goal of the game, as Nigeria lost their final World Cup warm-up match 1-0 to Czech Republic on Wednesday.
Nigeria’s World Cup preparations took another hit on Wednesday, as they lost 1-0 to a Czech Republic side which failed to qualify for the finals in Russia.
Gernot Rohr’s men could take some positives away from their 2-1 defeat to England on Saturday, but there were few four days later, as Tomas Kalas’ first-half opener secured a slender victory for the Czechs, who were thrashed 4-0 by Australia on Friday.
At no point in the first half did Nigeria appear to be in the ascendancy and, shortly after surviving a scare, they deservedly found themselves trailing in the 25th minute – Kalas scuffing in from close range after Francis Uzoho parried Tomas Soucek’s header right to him.
The closest Nigeria came to levelling before the break was Wilfred Ndidi’s 30-yard drive, which was brilliantly tipped around the post by Tomas Vaclik in the Czech goal.
Although a downpour briefly interrupted play in the early stages of the second half, Nigeria played with more intent after half-time and went close in the 63rd minute, as John Obi Mikel saw a header saved by Vaclik.
Despite Nigeria’s efforts and attack-minded approach, a late equaliser never arrived, consigning them to a second successive defeat in their World Cup preparation games.

Wizkid is nowhere to be found when Davido is set to perform in two major international concerts….SEE

Superstar Nigerian singer, Davido has recently shared a list of International Music Festivals he would appear at live on stage.
In a series of flyers that emerged on Davido’s Instagram page are details of Jay Z’s MADE IN AMERICA concert which would have him perform alongside notable International acts such as; Meek Mill, Post Malone, Nikki Minaj and a host of others.
See post below:-
Meanwhile, another flyer posted on Davido’s Instagram page indicated that the IF crooner has been billed to perform at another high profile International music concert, ONE MUSIC FESTIVAL which is scheduled to hold between september 8th to 9th, 201. NAS, Cardi B, Big Sean and Other renowned International acts will be performing alongside Davido at the event.
See Post Below;
No doubt, getting to be listed alongside big International artistes at two big world stage is a big one or the DMW boss and he sure deserves it.
But the question that readily comes to mind at this point is why Wizkid was not included in any of these International music events?
Is It Because Wizkid Missed Out At Coachella Event?
Or
It’s just Davido’s turn to shine?
