Rapper, Iceberg Slim talks relationship with Juliet Ibrahim, Life in the US, & more in new interview
It’s safe to say that Rapper, Iceberg Slim and actress, Juliet Ibrahim are the Romeo and Juliet  of the Nigerian entertainment industry.

In an interview with PunchIceberg Slim (real name Olusegun Olowookere) talked on couple of issues from growing up in America, moving down to Nigeria to kick start his music career , his love and attraction  to Juliet Ibrahim.

Read excerpts below:

On his first visit to Nigeria

The first time I visited Nigeria was when I was three. I really don’t remember anything about that trip, apart from stories that my family told me. According to them, I was talking to a baby chicken, asking it to be my friend.

On how growing up in America impacted his personality

Growing up in America has had a huge part to play in the person I’ve become. Although some may see it as an advantage, living in America isn’t a bed of roses. I’ve fought many battles; socially, economically, mentally, and even physically. It has made me strong and resilient.

On why he didn’t pursue his music career in the United States

I didn’t want to pursue a career in the United States because I wanted to stand for something bigger. I was seen as a typical African-American aka Black guy; however I am a Nigerian. I want to be known as a Nigerian musician, not a Black or African-American musician. But in order to do that, I would have to connect with my people; my fellow Nigerians. That was what influenced my decision to move to Nigeria.

On career challenges

Over the years, the major challenge I faced was trying to find my niche in the Nigerian music industry. The first hurdle was me trying to fine-tune my sound and style to be relatable to the average Nigerian. I then had to learn pidgin English, as well as improve on my Yoruba to infuse those elements into my music.

Juliet is an amazing woman. When we first met, I was intrigued by her peculiar choice in music. After we spoke for a little bit, I was blown away by her intelligence, ambition and kind heart. I don’t think there are words to describe the relationship. To say it’s incredible would be an understatement.

Zambia Deports Zodwa Wabantu for not Putting on Her Panties

Zambian immigration authorities on Saturday deported soutry South African dancer Zodwa Wabantu.

The popular erotic dancer was deported because she dances without underwear, the dancer’s promoter said.

Zodwa was billed to perform at an album launch later on Saturday evening, but was sent back when she landed in the morning at the Kenneth Kaunda international airport.

“I can confirm that Zodwa has been deported back to South Africa by the immigration department,” her promoter Lucky Munakampe told AFP, adding no reasons were given for her deportation.

Immigration department officials were not reachable on their phones for comment.

Zambia’s religious affairs minister Godfridah Sumaili told AFP last week that Zodwa would not be allowed to perform in the country.

“Zambia is a Christian nation where morality and ethics have to be followed. We don’t expect a woman to dance without underwear,” Sumaili said.

Zambia is a largely conservative country where the majority of people practice Christianity.

Last year the censorship board in neighbouring Zimbabwe barred Wabantu from performing at an annual carnival after a protest by a local actress.

Following a backlash, censorship authorities later backtracked and allowed Wabantu to perform at a private venue, but she refused to go saying she was afraid.
