      America geograoher! U know all institutions in USA

      Thanks you Jerry for educating him/ her. LA does not mean Los Angeles as State is concern here in US. Los Angeles is not even a State but just an ordinary city like Ibadan, Ogbomosho and others cities are to Oyo State in Nigeria. All these Sun editors need to do their homework right before publishing fake and denegrating stories for public consumption.

    So The Sun cannot correct its online edition of the US state mentioned in the story. It is either the editor of this newspaper is arrongant or lazy or both. Does it mean feedback has no role to play in Nigerian journalism practise. Shame! Shame!

    Congrats! You really deserve it. Am also wishing you to bag CFR or CON in 2013 for being the pioneer and source of encouragement and inspiration to young Nigerians in terms of entertainment. TODAY naija music rule all over the radio stations in Nigeria, even in Africa!. No more oyinbo music at social functions, it s naija all the way! Kudos! if no one appreciate you, i do!

  14. Kunle Edun December 13, 2012 at 11:03 am

    Please editors should do thorough proof-reading before going to press. Baton Rouge and New Orleans are in the U.S. State of Louisiana. They are no where close to Los Angeles.
