Former Fugees Member, Lauryn Hill has pleaded Guilty to Tax evasion and might be doing Prison time soon. TMZ reports...
According to TMZ, the Fugees frontwoman told a judge on Friday that she intentionally failed to file tax returns from 2005, 2006, and 2007, when she earned more than $1.8 million. In addition to prison time, she could be hit with a $75,000 fine.
When the judge asked Hill if she “intentionally and willingly” failed to file the returns, she replied, “Yes.”
She was released on $150,000 bail and will be sentenced in November.
In a previous letter posted online, Hill defended her actions, claiming to have removed herself and her family from society during those three years in order to “keep them safe, healthy, and free from danger.”
“For the past several years, I have remained what others would consider underground,” she wrote. “I kept my life relatively simple, even after huge successes, but it became increasingly obvious that certain indulgences and privileges were expected to come at the expense of my free soul, free mind, and therefore my health and integrity.”

For the Past Few Months now, The Nigerian Entertainment Industry has seen an Influx of these Digital Distribution Companies and they have began to Corner most of its Products Limiting Consumer access but also Profiting artistes and Labels. Some People are Excited about them, Some are Pissed. But do we really Know what we are getting ouselves into??? Entertainment Lawyer Ms. Uduak Oduak Attempts to break it down for us...
I recently worked on a draft article dealing with COSON’s billion-naira lawsuits against Wazobia and Cool FM. Radio stations are also important stakeholders in the music industry and certainly any steps taken to protect copyrights of artists, cannot do so in a way that is highly detrimental to radio stations. The COSON lawsuits against the aforementioned radio stations, in my view, create complex issues that deal first with the role of COSON as a performance rights organization and second the protection of radio broadcast rights and organizations in Nigeria. It is an interesting balancing act and I hope to share my thoughts soon.
First, hats off to EME Records. EME is killing it on all fronts. They are making statements without really saying a word. A couple of smooth moves they have in place which serves as Exhibit A for industry persons to pay attention to:
Ebisan, one of the rising stars on the music scene, pushes the bar with her new and sophomore single "Jowo" as she presents a more upbeat and witty song, showing us she does have a quirky and edgy side. Ebisan brought us the amazing theme song for last year's block buster "Tango with Me" "Suru" and the fascinating "Love Story"

Ghanian's DKB and Siera Leonan Zainab got into a Huge Fight . Zainab apparently Provoked DKB by walking into the bathroom while he was bathing, DKB approached her afterwards and a War of Words ensued, It later lead to DKB slapping her. They have Both been disqualified from the game after what Biggie termed "Contravening the Violence rule".
This is what Biggie told them...
Having reviewed the footage, Big Brother has come to the following decision:“DKB – you have been disqualified from the game for contravening the violence rule. You must pack your bags immediately, and take them to Storeroom. You must say goodbye to your Housemates and then leave the house through the Storeroom. DKB, leave the Diary Room immediately, and pack your bags,” Big Brother said.To Zainab, Big Brother said; “having reviewed the footage very carefully, Big Brother can come to no other conclusion than that your provocation of DKB contributed substantively to the incident. For this reason, Big Brother has concluded that you have also been disqualified. Once DKB has left the House, you too will pack your bags and take them to the storeroom. You will then say goodbye to your Housemates, and leave through the storeroom.”
The Big Brother rules state clearly that; Any Housemate who becomes physically violent will be removed from the House immediately. Violence can refer to self-inflicted violence, or violence towards another. Violence includes provocation, goading, bullying and victimisation.
