His story reads like the proverbial stone which was rejected but which has now become the corner stone. Welcome to the world of AppyDay (Daniel Appyday) Anambra State-born Nigerian singer/performer poised to rule the music scene in the Nordic country of Norway.

Said a source in the know: “When he left Nigeria a couple of years ago, little did he know that he would dominate the music scene in Norway. AppyDay is serenading the Nordic country with his voice and as you read this piece he has qualified for the semi finals of Norway’s Got Talent, christened Norske Talenter (one of the biggest TV Talent shows in Norway) showing on major stations across Europe.

“This is just incredible! Norway’s Got Talent (Norske Talenter) has five stages and in the beginning, there were thousands of contestants but now, only just 36 contestants are remaining and Appyday is one of them. He has made it to the fourth stage. He will be performing on the platform again on May 12 when the semi finals kick-off,” the source revealed.

Checks revealed that AppyDay is the only Nigerian on the platform. Meanwhile, the star prize is a whopping N23m plus a contract with Sony Music.

Added the source: “If he wins, he wants to pursue his dream of starting a foundation for motherless and abandoned babies in Nigeria. His dream is to give homeless children a good home and education that will position them for life changing opportunities.

“When he started music, some fellow Nigerians in Norway said he was wasting his time insisting that he did not stand a chance in Europe with his Nigerian Afro beat and dancehall Music. They believed that white folks will not appreciate his style.

“However, white folks found his African music addictive because of the beat, energy and his swagger. His first single in 2016 “Okro Soup” got him a lot of attention in Norway and Sweden. Norwegians love food a lot, especially soups from other countries. They got interested in Appyday’s Okro soup and wanted to know what kind of soup it was. They even tagged his sound happy music in a bid to connect with him and eventually christened him Appyday,” the source added, stating that he plans to visit Nigeria soon if he wins and celebrate with all those that voted for him.

Before he left Nigeria, he was a reputable actor popularly known in Nollywood circles following his success in popular sitcom, Royal Tears on AIT network where he played the lead role Ogaga. He also played the role of Eze in Dance of Shame which aired on Galaxy TV, and he was also in After the Storm on NTA Network. He is the founder of Excellency Nigeria Children’s Theatre.

Nigerian media personality, Toke Makinwa has clamped down on former presidential aide, Reno Omokri following his remark about ‘divorced women.’

The former presidential aide had shared a tweet where he urged the media to project ‘natural beauties’ like the late Nigerian first lady, Mayram Babangida as role models for youths, instead of bombarding them with photos of ‘bleached and divorced women with surgical enhanced bodies.’

Irked by the tweet, Makinwa, who is a divorcee, rebuked Omokri and she labeled him as an ‘embarrassment.’

In her words;

“Wow, at your age? Your wife and kids must be cringing for you, such an embarrassment. “Divorced” is nothing to shame anyone for, life happens. People like you are the reasons why a lot of people stay in unhealthy situations and lose their dignity and In some cases their lives.

“You can celebrate a version of beauty without putting another down, you don’t have to meddle in women’s business too. If you have a daughter I hope she gets the courage to never deal with a man as uncouth as you, stop with the misogyny.

“I don’t care about shots intended my way, what I do care about is the group of women you singlehandedly insulted with your “Divorcee” comment, to divorce is not a crime, every divorced person has survived something and sometimes getting a divorce is the only option they have 

“Enough with the divorce shaming of Anyone, I don’t see a divorced man being shamed for living his life after his failed marriage, people like that clown are probably in unhealthy marriages too. God forbid I marry a man who tweets that kind of garbage, sighhh.

“Everyone has a divorced person that they know, it can happen to anyone, that we divorced and alive should be encouraged, people are dying each day living in unhealthy situations and while I’m not advocating for divorce, if leaving is what you need to do, do it in peace.

“You cannot survive a bad marriage, survive a mental breakdown and then now have to deal with judgement from people who have not walked a mile in your shoes, it should not be encouraged. Someone’s journey does not have to be your cup of tea, that’s ok but you must respect it.

“Dragging my divorced slay queen naked ass back to my holiday and waking up to the most beautiful view. In my bed and outside my room. Love and light xx” Toke tweeted
