WHEN SILENCE MEANS CONTEMPT
By Sam Omatseye
The president has always seen silence as a mark of dignity in a time of crisis. When he opens his mouth eventually, he spews out venom that neither gives him nor the office he occupies any form of dignity.
Tall, gaunt, lean of face with a straight stare and loping strides, his smile comes across more like a lickspittle than a royal. Yet, behind that simpering exterior is a granite heart. However, little cunning or high thinking dresses up his hearty resolves. So, in the final analysis, what we have is not the Buhari of nobility but a pretension to the high moral act. Sometimes that façade confronts us in the form of silence.
Occasionally he does speak. When he breaks his silence, he ruptures not only peace but logic. As I have noted in the past, Buhari’s soul is a battle between the martial impulses of his breeding and the entitlement of his ambience as a Fulani hierarch. And then there is a third. He has managed, since his ouster from power as head of state, to cultivate the talakawa. So, he sees himself as a sort of royal with a common touch. He is simultaneously on top and at the bottom, a prince and pauper, a head and herdsman, at once erupting from the floor and swooping down from heaven.

Empire Mates Entertainment is proud to present the official video for Banky W's "Jasi". The song was produced by MasterKraft, and features additional background vocals by EME starlet Niyola. The hilarious clip was shot in Lagos, Nigeria and London.
"Jasi" highlights Banky W's playfulness AND versatility. Very few artistes worldwide are able to change styles as effortlessly as Mr W can... and here we see him temporarily set aside his "King of Afro-R&B" crown to pull off this Afrobeats/Afropop club banger, and it works quite well. The video also shows his acting skills as Banky plays more than one role, in the same scene, in the vein of an Eddie Murphy or Tyler Perry.
Shot by Uber Director Sesan, the video is quite hilarious and features cameos from MasterKraft, and Lynxxx... and we hope you have as much fun watching it, as we did filming it. Here's to Africa's most versatile Artist, Banky W.
