South African President Jacob Zuma has held power since May 9th 2009 under the African National Congress Party (8 Years). Like many other African presidents, Zuma has over stayed his welcome in office and is no longer the peoples choice judging by public opinion polls but keeps winning elections.

The 75 Year old Father of 22 Children is popularly known to many Africans for his hilarious blunders, Memes, controversial statements and corruption charges, some of which courts verdict were against him.
If you still don't know who i'm talking about by now, here's a picture below.

News and Social Media erupted in rage this weekend over the Zuma's visit to Nigeria.
The 2-day Visit which is aimed at strengthening Social, Political and Economic ties between Nigeria and South Africa was much needed especially since tensions between the two countries had remained high due to reported killings of Nigerians in SA.
All went according to plan but no one anticipated the backlash and criticisms that would follow after.

The hospitable people of Eastern Nigeria - Imo State did the honors of hosting Jacob Zuma accompanied by the State Governor - Rochas Okorocha, Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Former INEC boss and traditional rulers.

Highlights of President Zuma's Visit to Nigeria

An Igbo traditional title "Ochiagha" which means - Warlord - was bestowed upon him.

A Civil Society Network Against Corruption, Former Aviation Minister - Femi Fani-Kayode and others have publicly condemned the actions of Imo State Governor - Rochas Okorocha.
Many are of the opinion that a corrupt leader such as Jacob Zuma should not be celebrated by this administration that is spear-heading the fight against corruption.
As we pass judgement quickly on Rochas, remember diplomatic relations between countries exist even for Foreign politicians found guilty of a financial crimes or fleeing from the law in their own country (AKA asylum).

Hi, am using bb z30. I did as you instructed and it removed the error but it doesn't want to switch on. it keeps showing the red led blinking twice instead of switching on what's wrong and how can I pass from that.

Try flashing it again, sometimes it takes more than 1 attempt. Make sure you're using the right firmware for your device (St1, st2 etc)
You can also try downloading a different version of firmware (downgrade / upgrade)

Phones / How to Remove Safe Mode from Android devices
« on: August 23, 2017, 02:11 PM »
Google's popular Mobile Operating system - Android has several modes built in to your device to help troubleshoot and resolve issues.
You might never need to use them unless your Mobile phone malfunctions. Some of these modes are:
- Download Mode: Allows Firmware to be installed on Samsung devices
- Safe mode: Disables all third-party Applications
- Recovery Mode: Gives access to wipe factory reset, apply update from Storage or install a custom recovery.
We'll only discuss Safe Mode in this post. Use the search bar below to find more information we've written about the other modes.

What is Safe Mode on Android ?
Safe mode in Android Devices is a Built in Failsafe function that prevents damage to your Android OS.
The Operating system - Android can be damaged if system critical files are modified by means of rooting.
Applications downloaded from the Google Play Store or Third-party APK Marketplaces can cause compatibility issues and hinder the smooth operation of your device.
In severe cases, it might not be possible to use your device, Enter settings or attempt to remove the incompatible Application. A lot of users simply resort to a Factory Data reset but Safe Mode should be attempted because it disables all third-party applications and allows your to uninstall via Settings >> Apps.
This is similar to what Safe Mode does on Microsoft Windows Operating systems.

Samsung Android Safe Mode
How to get Android devices into Safe Mode
If your device becomes bloated with malware, adware and pop-ups automatically launching and downloading unnecessary apps, a Firmware Flash done by a qualified tech support might be a more permanent solution but you can try the following as a temporary fix:
  • Power of your Android Device
  • Hold "Volume Down + Power Button" and release when both buttons when Boot logo is displayed
  • Your device will boot up and display "Safe Mode" on the bottom-left corner of your screen.
    If Unsuccessful, Try holding Volume up + Power or Home Button + Power.
    Some third-party apps available on the Android Store can assist to get your device in safe mode but root may be required.

Remove Safe Mode from Android Device
There are three easy ways to get your device out of safe mode.
  • While device is turned on, press and hold the Power Button and select 'RESTART"
  • While device is turned on, Swipe down to check Notifications. If your device has SAFEMODE in notification, tab to turn it off and your device will restart
  • If step 1and two above doesn't work, remove the battery while phone is on for about 3 minutes and allow it boot.

Hello Ian,
Most cases involving SIM card error or BB is because the BB autoloader OS used to flash your device is from a different carrier than the original.

The solution is to find the correct carrier firmware for your device / mobile network.

It's been ages since Nigerian super entertainment duo "Don Jazzy and D'banj" parted ways to focus on their individual record labels after some disagreement over distribution of revenue.
Their individual record labels "Mavins records by Don Jazzy" and "GOOD Music by D'banj" continue working on new projects and dropping hit tracks, one better than the other but the success of new hit songs or artists cannot be compared to the current records still being held by old ones done years ago while they were working together.

We do not intend to open old wounds but the separation is often discussed at almost every interview, fans want to know if Don Jazzy and D'banj will ever work together again. The answer to that question is NO, considering how arrogant and oversized the Ego of D'Banj has grown.
The artists who currently resides in United States of America and considers himself to be an "International Artist" has repeatedly taken shots at other Home based artists in defence to mean tweets sent on social media especially those comparing his individual success / failure now to before.

D'Banj and Don Jazzy Trending again
Not much attention was paid to the pre-release of D'banj Kingdom Come Album since the event was held in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, USA. Instead critics in their usual antics, flooded D'banj with comments that suggested Kingdom come would be another flop in his dieing career.

It's always best to filter out all the hate and concentrate on the positive because one reply could be taken out of context or reveal ones position on a subject. D'banj replied to a comment on twitter and as usual took shots at the artist he was being compared with - Don Jazzy.
Don Jazzy's Fans and the twitter mob who live for drama woke up this monday morning holiday with time on their hands to share D'banj comment enough to make it trend and would be the talk of the town for days to come.

Here is D'banj comment that everyone is talking about:
D'banj and Don Jazzy in fresh brawl

Being the Bigger man that he is, we do not expect Don Jazzy to issue any sort of response as he has since moved on to greater things. We can only pray and hope that D'banj does the same.

A good relationship with your bank is important, especially in this new cashless era where individuals and businesses rely on Internet banking, Mobile banking and Debit / Credit cards for transactions as small as purchase of airtime, bill payments, shopping and more.

Judging by the number of public complaints from customers of Nigerian banks one could say the Hate is real especially at the end of the month when transaction alert charges are deducted automatically. Charges of 100 Naira for sending money inter-bank transfers is a normal thing but nothing could prepare Nigerians for the New Charge of 50 Naira for receiving Money.

The Hate became real but before we blame the banks for this new charge lets take a moment to understand what the charge is for and why it was introduced.


What is Stamp Duty Charge
In line with the Federal Government of Nigeria non-oil sector revenue generation drive, A Letter from the Central Bank of Nigeria dated 15th January, 2016 and backed by Stamp Duty Act LFN 2004 and a court ruling on in 2013 authorized all Deposit Money Banks (DMBs) and other financial institutions to collect 50 Naira charge.

Stamp Duty charge by Central bank of Nigeria

What transactions attract 50 Naira Stamp Duty Charge
All received credit alerts to your bank account (current or savings) attracts a 50 Naira stamp duty charge.
The Receiver pays the 50 Naira, not the sender. So you don't get charged stamp duty for debit transactions.

Where does all revenue from Stamp Duty Charges go
All stamp duty charges collected by Deposit money banks and other financial institutions are paid into the Nigeria Postal Service (NIPOST) collection account with the Central Bank of Nigeria 3000047517.
What the federal government chooses to do with this new revenue stream is yet to be established.

How to Avoid or Minimize Stamp duty Charges
1. Businesses that accept payments from customers to their accounts can choose to add 50 Naira to cost of goods / services.
2. Individuals that deposit money daily or weekly can reduce stamp duty charges by accumulating cash before depositing all at once.

NOTE: Bank charges for Transfers to third party has now been reduced from 100 Naira to 50 Naira (minus VAT).

Hello i have tried those steps.
Hey Kenneth,
Sorry it didn't work for you.
The steps outlined above is what i still use till date to bypass the anti-theft protection lock and it still works.
You might not be using the correct anti-theft autoloader as they are different for various devices.
I'd suggest you take it to a repair shop and see if they can assist.
