Legendary Musician in the Nigerian Music Industry, 2Face Idibia has raised a cry over corruption in the management of the Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON)

According to him, “From the figures share recently, COSON has lost about N250m to the crisis that erupted with the December 7, 2017 sacking of Chief Tony Okoroji as ‘chairman’.

“The society collected N200m less than the sum of the previous year and spent over N50m on lawsuits and office security within the year. Simple compliance with the NCC’s directives or submission to the wide call for independent audit to prove the innocence of the directors against allegations of financial misconduct may have saved COSON at least, N230m, that’s assuming the audit cost N20m’.

“To worsen issues, the license don kuku expire sef making it criminal for COSON to demand and collect royalties on behalf of members.

“Then today we see this: “With respect to the COSON mandate to carry on its operations … COSON has been assured by its team of lawyers that with the various issues still awaiting determination at various courts and with the recent decisions of the Supreme Court of Nigeria, no one has the power to unilaterally stop the operations of COSON.” “Lawyers”, “various issues”, “various courts” because of a simple forensic audit?



Ex-Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says he is ready to take a new role in football – but has admitted for the first time he might not return to management.

Wenger ended his 22-year Gunners reign after the 2017-18 season and previously stated he intended to take charge of a new club in early 2019.

But the 69-year-old Frenchman told the BBC: “I thought I will come back into management very quickly, but I enjoyed taking a little distance.

“Now I’m at a crossroads.”

Wenger was speaking at the launch of a new partnership with a sports technology company, which he is joining as an investor and operating partner.

The firm said Wenger would be taking an “active role in business and product development” of a device housed in a football boot that analyses players’ technical, tactical and physical performance.

It will not prevent the Frenchman from resuming his career in football. However 12 months out of work has given him a different outlook and may influence his next move.

“You will see me again in football. As a manager… I don’t know,” he said.

“In this year I did a lot of charity work, conferences – and I enjoyed it, I must say, to be a little bit less in highlights and less under stress.

“I’m less intense, but I have a better perspective of what’s going on. I see the mistakes managers make and I don’t pay the price for it.

“I came to the conclusion I want to share what I learned in my life, because I think life is only useful if, at some stage, you share what you know.

“In what way will it be? Will it be in just winning football games, or will it be in another way? That’s what I have to decide and that decision will come very quickly.

“Football is still my passion. I will come back soon – but I cannot tell you exactly in what capacity.”

‘I miss Arsenal because I left my heart in there’

Wenger won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups after taking charge of Arsenal in 1996, becoming the north London side’s longest serving and most successful manager.

“I miss competition and I miss Arsenal because I left my heart in there,” he explained.

“I gave my life to this club for 22 years. Every minute of my life was dedicated to this club and I miss the values we developed inside the club.

“I support Arsenal. It will be forever my club.”

Europa League final a ‘nightmare’

Wenger has yet to attend a Gunners match since his departure, and he will again be watching on television when they face Premier League rivals Chelsea in the Europa League final in Baku, Azerbaijan on 29 May.

But he expressed displeasure at the choice of venue, given the travel problems encountered by both sets of supporters and the decision of Arsenal’s Armenia midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan not to participate because of political tensions between his country and the host nation.

“It’s a little bit of a nightmare [for the fans],” said Wenger.

“The teams have no problem. They live in ideal conditions – they have their private jet, nice business seats. But it’s the fans.

“That [Mkhitaryan’s situation] is something that should not happen in football.

“I feel it’s not normal that in 2019 – inside Europe, with very sophisticated democracies – that you cannot play for political reasons.”

With Liverpool and Tottenham meeting in the Champions League final, it is an all-Premier League line-up in the two major European showpieces.

Wenger says that is down to the “quality of work” of English teams but also the age of the squads of some of the European giants.

“Many teams who were dominant forces in Europe before – Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus – have collapsed,” said the Frenchman.

“Paris St-Germain had a good opportunity to win the Champions League this year and [there has been an] over-ageing of the other dominant forces.

“They have to renew their teams. The players who used to make the difference are a bit overage now.

“That’s why we will have a very, very interesting transfer market this summer.”



Jose Mourinho will not become the next Juventus manager despite being endorsed for the role by Cristiano Ronaldo, according to Sky sources.

It is understood that former Manchester United manager Mourinho is out of the Serie A champions’ price range after they spent in excess of £100m to bring Ronaldo the Turin last summer.

Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo was prepared to put his previous differences with Mourinho to one side and recommended his former Real Madrid boss to the Juventus board.

Juventus are searching for a new manager after Massimiliano Allegri confirmed he will leave the club at the end of the season.



Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has confirmed the Bundesliga champions are in contact with Manchester City over signing Leroy Sane.

Bayern have emerged as favourites to sign Sane this summer after Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery left the Allianz Arena at the end of the season.

Sane has struggled for regular football under Pep Guardiola and Bayern have confirmed they are prepared to offer him a route out of the Etihad.

“We are dealing with this player,” Hoeness is quoted by Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

Spanish giants Barcelona have said their final goodbyes to Ghanaian forward Kevin Prince Boateng as he leaves for Sassuolo in the summer.

The on-loan Sassuolo forward’s season at Barcelona came to an end after he was ruled out of the Copa del Rey final against Valencia due to injury.

Boateng endured a torrid time at Barcelona failing to score a goal in four appearances for the Catalan club.

When the 32-year old joined Barcelona, it was reported the club had an option of making the deal permanent if he impresses manager Ernesto Velverde.

But it is clear, the 2010 Ghana World Cup star failed to live up to expectation, hence a return to Italy in the summer.

Despite moving back to Sassuolo, Boateng has won the La Liga and could add the Copa del Rey medal to his accolades if Barcelona secure a domestic double.
