    Soul musician, Preyé, becomes Spotify’s “Fresh Finds Africa” artiste for September

    Nigerian soul musician, Preyé, has been selected as Spotify’s “Fresh Finds Africa” artiste for September.

    Phiona Okumu, Spotify’s head of music for sub-Saharan Africa, disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday in Lagos.

    Okumu said the ‘Fresh Finds Africa’ programme was launched in March, designed to provide a launching pad for emerging independent artistes to reach new audiences.

    She said the programme was built around the eponymous playlist and access to tools and initiatives that inspired artistes to have long and thriving careers.

    Inspired by her recent wins, Preyé is thrilled by the opportunity to reach even more fans as she said: “I still celebrate every single playlist addition, so being highlighted as Spotify’s Fresh Finds artiste of the month truly feels amazing.

    “I am excited by the opportunity to share my music and story with new listeners, especially all my fellow R&B lovers.

    ” Born in Lagos, Preyé Itams grew up inspired by her father’s music library and the music he would play while working; the traditional sounds of Jazz, Soul, and melodic bards like Jill Scott, Enya, Brenda Fassie, and Lauryn Hill. Her first release in 2015,  ‘Mortia‘,  introduced her as an exciting voice in the emerging independent alte community.

    In 2018, she collaborated with two vanguards of that scene, Tay Iwar & Santi on Space, introducing more fans to her soothing poetic take on songwriting.

    After quitting a rigid job in Canada to focus on her music, Preyé staked her claim with defiant soulful tunes including Peace Of Mind and Red Wine. The vulnerable yet unyielding essence of Preyé’s music and her dynamic vocals have earned her editorial and fan attention.

    In June this year, Billboard listed her hot single, Malibu, as one of their top R&B finds.

    She was also recently selected as one of six artistes for Spotify’s Africa month global campaign, called Spotify Sounds of Africa, alongside LADIPOE, Zoë Modiga, Nomfundo Moh, Chris Khaiga, and Nikita Kering.

    Her September-released debut EP, ‘Don’t Look Down‘, centers around love and self-discovery and features Nigerian rapper LADIPOE on the lead single, Love, Today.

    Every month, ‘Fresh Finds Africa’ spotlights one artiste selected by the Spotify music team.

    It is an important aspect of Spotify’s initiatives, including RADAR & EQUAL, created to support the African music scene.

    The president expressed the commitment again after former President Dr Goodluck Jonathan briefed him on the face-off between Mali and Cote D’Ivoire, in the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Thursday.

    The face-off emanated from the detention of 49 Ivorien soldiers by Mali for “unlawful entry’’.

    Three of them, females, have been released, leaving 46 others still in detention in Mali.Cote D’Ivoire has condemned the act as “hostage taking’’, threatening to take action.

    The development led to the intervention by ECOWAS leaders as advocated by the ECOWAS Special Envoy on the situation in Mali, ex-President Jonathan.

    Presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina quoted Buhari as pledging an initiative by Nigeria to immediately resolve the impasse The president also presided over the  virtual meeting of Federal Executive Council (FEC) where it approved the signing of a Bilateral Air Services Agreement between Nigeria and Kuwait.

    The council also approved the sum of N829.8million as revised estimated cost for the rehabilitation of a road linking Anambra and Enugu States.

    Contract for the rehabilitation of the road was originally awarded in 2018 because it is a strategic inter-state road that had heavy traffic.

    Minister of State for Works and Housing, Malam Umar El-Yakub, gave the revised contract figure when he spoke with newsmen at the end of the council’s weekly meeting.

    The president had earlier on Tuesday hosted President Andrzej Duda of Poland at the State House, Abuja.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the signing took place during the State Visit of Duda , the first by a Polish leader to Nigeria since the establishment of diplomatic relations between both countries in 1961.Buhari said Nigeria was gratified by the existing fruitful cooperation with Poland in the fields of maritime, education and defence.

    On agriculture, the president said cooperation in this area would be a win-win for the two countries, especially in the context of global food insecurity occasioned by the conflict in Ukraine.

    Agriculture is one of the priority areas of the Nigerian government.

    On Friday, Buhari said he received with immense sadness news of the passing of Queen Elizabeth ll of the United Kingdom.

    He said: ”My family and I, and the more than 200 million Nigerians have learned with immense sadness of the passing of the Queen and the end of her unique and wonderful 70 year reign.

    ”Her late Majesty was the only British Sovereign known to 90 per cent of our population.

    “Our thoughts and sincere condolences are with the Royal Family and the people of the United Kingdom and the entire Commonwealth as we join the entire world in mourning her loss.

    ”The story of modern Nigeria will never be complete without a chapter on Queen Elizabeth ll, a towering global personality and an outstanding leader.

    ”She dedicated her life to making her nation, the Commonwealth and the entire world a better place.

    ” The president inaugurated the Presidential Committee on the National Economy, noting that in spite of the disruptions in global economy and internal troubles, the Nigerian economy has continued to be resilient and maintain an upward trajectory.

    “I want to congratulate my able Nigerian Team who went with me to the All Africa Challenge Trophy in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania 2022. “I can proudly say that we went, we saw and we conquered.

    “Even though Nigeria featured two players instead of three (due to travel document issues), we were able finish seventh out of 21 countries, which is our best performance in over a decade,” she said.

    She noted that the trip was hugely successful as Nigeria also won the position of the AACT Trustee for the West & Central Africa.

    “We remain grateful to God for these positive achievements and look forward to more wins for Nigeria in future.

    Together we move,” she said.

    Team Nigeria finished 9th position at the 2018 edition of the AACT held at the Achimota Golf Club in Ghana.

    However, Nigeria has been dominant in the sub region and emerged overall winners of the West and Central Africa Challenge Trophy, which was organised by LGAN at the Ikeja Golf Club in 2019.

    NCC-CSIRT warns against Google Chrome extensions Malware

    The Nigerian Communications Commission’s Computer Security Incident Response Team (NCC-CSIRT), has warned against five malicious Google Chrome Extensions that surreptitiously track online browsers’ activities and steal their data.  

    NCC’s Director of Public Affairs (DPA), Mr Reuben Muoka, made this known in a statement on Saturday in Abuja.  

    Muoka said that the five malicious extensions were discovered by the McAfee Mobile Research Team.   He said that they include Netflix Party with 800,000 downloads, Netflix Party 2 with 300,000 downloads, as well as Full Page Screenshot Capture Screenshotting with 200,000 downloads.  

    Others are FlipShope Price Tracker Extension with 80,000 downloads and AutoBuy Flash Sales with 20,000 downloads.  

    “The five google chrome extensions identified have a high probability, damage potential and have been downloaded more than 1.4 million times, while they serve as access to steal users’ data.  

    “The telecom sector-focused cybersecurity protection team alerted telecom consumers to be cautious when installing any browser extension.  

    “The users of these chrome extensions are unaware of their invasive functionality and privacy risk.  

    “Malicious extensions monitor victims’ visits to e-commerce websites and modify the visitor’s cookie to appear as if they came through a referrer link.  

    “Consequently, the extensions’ developers get an affiliate fee for any purchases at electronic shops,” he said.  

    The DPA stated that, although the google team removed several browser extensions from its Chrome Web Store, keeping malicious extensions out may be difficult.  

    He, however, said that the NCC-CSIRT, thus, recommended that telecom consumers observe caution when installing any browser extension.  

    Mouka said: “This include removing all listed extensions from their chrome browser manually.  

    “Internet users are to pay close attention to the promptings from their browser extensions, such as the permission to run on any website visited and the data requested before installing it.  

    “Although some extensions are seemingly legit due to the high number of user downloads, these hazardous add-ons make it imperative for users to ascertain the authenticity of extensions they access.

    ”   Mouka stated that Google Chrome extensions were software programmes that can be installed into Chrome in order to change the browsers’ functionality.  

    “This includes adding new features to Chrome or modifying the existing behavior of the program itself to make it more convenient for the user.  

    “They serve purposes such as block ads, integration with password managers and sourcing coupons as items sent to a shopping cart,”he added.

    The Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) is the telecom sector’s cyber security incidence centre set up by the NCC.

    It focuses on incidents in the telecom sector as they may affect telecom consumers and citizens at large.
