Journalist Osagie Alonge, formerly with NET.ng, launches his brand of investigative journalism on Pulse.Ng titled #FactsOnly, and from the looks of it, he and Pulse.ng will need several professionals ASAP: 1) A lawyer, like yesterday; and 2) possibly a professional body guard, given the history of the likes of Olisa Adibua. Hey, don’t look at me. We are about the facts, not so?
By the way, as I told OSAGIE when I received his email, this your “#FactsOnly” show, you give props to Jay-z when in reality the props should be going to Africa Music Law. Before #Factsonly, where else have you seen anyone serve up investigative facts and then break down the analysis, especially where legal issues are concerned? Mr. Alonge you just got “#factchecked.” 🙂
I like the show and look forward to future episodes. I think it is going to definitely get industry folks stirred up, but I think we need more critics like Osagie Alonge, Charles Novia et al.
Too much “yes sir, and yes ma” in the industry. We gotta raise standards and do so in a respectful yet objective fashion i.e. strictly the facts.
