In a new and bold move to make sure the Super Eagles have a memorable outing at the World Cup in June, Solidstar has been made Team Ambassador. The appointment was made by the Nigeria Supporters Club in conjunction with the Nigerian Football Association. The deal will have Solidstar record a theme song which will be the official team song both on and off the pitch. The song will also aim to unite Nigerians with its message. 

Dr Rafiu Ladipo, President of the Nigeria Supporters Club said that they wanted a groovy and gyrating voice which both the old and young can relate with. Solidstar easily came to mind according to him. The Omotena crooner thanked him for his words and assured he won't disappoint. Can we assume Solidstar would be joining Nollywood stars in Brazil to cheer the team?

Sometimes being a celebrity isn't just enough as it comes with varying degrees of star power. The stunts a JayZ or Beyonce can pull shouldn't be tried by a Drake or an Estelle. This was one lesson Kid Cudi learnt too late, unfortunately, the damage is done. 

Beyonce dropped her fifth studio album at midnight on December 13th, 2013 with no promo and announcement.  She went on to set the record for fastest selling album with 827,000 copies in a week. Kid Cudi did same on February 26th, 2014 and the numbers are in. Dude sold only 87,000, his worst in his career. What were you thinking man?
