Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has called for appropriate regulatory framework to guide the use of cryptocurrency in the country. Femi Gbajabiamila ECOWAS regional electricity council members assume office(Opens in a new browser tab) Gbajabiamila made the call in Abuja when the management team of Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC), led by the Managing Director, Mr Umaru Ibrahim, visited him. The Spokesman of the agency, Mr Sunday Olufemi, reported the encounter in a statement on Thursday. Olufemi quoted the Speaker as saying that the call was necessary, especially now that the “entire world is exploring ways of mainstreaming cryptocurrencis into the global financial landscape.” Gbajabiamila said that only recently, there was a meeting of world leaders in Osaka, Japan, to deliberate on the subject. “The NDIC and other safety-net participants in the country must not be left behind in the adoption of appropriate regulatory framework to deal with the prevalence of cryptocurrencies in the global financial space,” Gbajabiamila said. The Speaker commended NDIC team for the visit, describing it as a right step towards fostering a harmonious working relationship between the legislative and executive arms of government. He assured that the House, under his leadership, would ensure that the appropriate committee was assigned to handle the oversight functions of the corporation. Earlier, the NDIC managing director had advised Nigerians to exercise maximum caution in the adoption of cryptocurrencies in their financial transactions. Ibrahim warned that while various forms of digital currencies currently in operation had their positive and negative attributes, those patronising them risked losing their savings. This is because, the medium, according to him, is largely unregulated and unrecognised by the traditional central banks in almost all financial jurisdictions. The statement quoted the Chairman of the NDIC board, Mrs Ronke Sokefun, as saying earlier that the corporation remained a critical player in the Nigerian financial safety net. Vanguard

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
