Yogo Man

Dancehall artist Yogo Man is a troubled man currently after his new video was banned from playing on government-owned TV station SSBC, besides his outstanding dancehall rap technique impressing many.

Managers to the TV station termed Yogo Man’s new video as being too raunchy and not fit to be displayed for viewing on the TV station since South Sudanese people are too conservative about their moral standards and hence do not promote display of western cultures on their screens.
This is not the first time such an incident has occurred. Some years back ago, viewers phoned a live music program on TV expressing their anger and complaining about the kind of music videos that were being played by the TV station. They argued that the music videos were not good for public viewing because girls in the videos were dancing in a compromising manner with half of their bodies exposed (naked).

The video which goes by the name “Tic Tac” produced by Willy Entertainment has received massive criticism for being so raunchy as well as a large following as some claim they see nothing wrong with the video as long as the dancers are not naked citing that the world is changing and some things are becoming a norm.
Twerking, which gained popularity in recent years is quickly being adopted as a dancing style in most music videos by many music artists in their music videos and has been seen as a way of getting many views and downloads. It has become a norm in the western countries and several other African countries to the extent of “twerk” competitions being held openly.

In Yogo’s video, beautiful girls are seen “twerking” off their “assets” while dressed in shorts and thus maybe the name “Tic Tac” with part of their thighs and legs as well as part of their stomach region exposed and thus the reason why it was banned for being raunchy.
Despite the music video being banned for viewing by SSBC, it is still available on YouTube and can be accessed using the following link. https://youtu.be/SclLR77VDVl.

South Sudan citizens have got moral values with a rich foundation and thus maybe a reason why they don’t allow raunchy and compromising videos to feature in their screens.

Jubek State students

The South Sudan National Examination Council says it plans to fully unify the management process of primary examination in the school year 2017/2018.

Speaking during the release of the South Sudan Certificate of Secondary Examination results for the school 2016/2017 in Juba today, the Secretary General of the National Examination Council Lul Ruei Dhol said when fully unified, the states will only be required to supply details of their candidates along with the examination fees while the rest of the stage of examination will be handled by the secretariat.

Dhol said in the school year 2016/2017, the secretariat partially unified the management process of the primary school examinations in the country by printing the question papers for all the states and issuance of certificates to 31, 000 successful candidates.

He said in the academic year 2016/2017, a total of 19, 487 candidates were registered for both primary and secondary examinations in which all the examinations commenced on 6th March 2017 and ended on 24th March 2017.

After all the scripts were transported to Juba right after the conduct of the examination they were stored for three months due to lack of funds. He said President Kiir personally intervened and asked the council of ministers to approve a supplementary budget to complete the rest of the stages.

Dhol noted that in the 2017/2018 school year the secretariat will only offer secondary examinations based on the South Sudan curriculum which is in compliance with the National Examination Council Resolution No. 6.

Freeman Morgan, a Liberian living in Perth said that he heard a lot about the legend and was not disappointed by what he witnessed after Kembe appeared on stage.

“A lot of my friends from South Sudan told me a lot about Emmanuel Kembe, I heard his songs which are so great and when he jumped on stage, I was seeing a star, to be honest to me he is one of Africa’s stars,” said Freeman.

Bossmaan Sounds, the company that sponsored Emmanuel Kembe’s Australian events is also taking the “Amarula” hit maker Roberto to perform to the South Sudanese community in Australia next month.

When we thought that ‘Original First Lady’ Mary Boyoi has got over her breakup with Dancehall artist, Embra Tor, she surprised her music fans when she released a new song dubbed ‘Wasa wasa’ which seems to be firing shots at his ex-lover.

The song is allegedly dedicated to Embra Tor whom she broke out with now for months. The song Wasa Wasa which literally means ‘ Move Move’ kept fans wondering if the song is a diss dedicated to Embra Tor and her kawaja babies’ father.

We contacted Mary Boyoi for comment on the matter, but she was not picking her calls.

Listen to the song here:
