Brymo reveals why he will never return to CHOC records_____In a recent interview with Goldmyne, former Choc City record label singer, Olawale Ashimi a.k.a. Brymo disclosed that he would never go back to the music label. According to the singer, after the dispute he had with the record label in 2013, it is only natural for him to leave and never to come back. He added that it was only business that kept them together but for Jesse Jagz, it is more that business. “I can assure you that my core followers won’t expect me to go back and it is more than business for Jesse. It is family, so his going back is expected. But for me, it was contract that tied us together and since it has been broken and they dragged me to court, it was only natural that I go my way. I would also appreciate the media to stop talking about me going back to Chocolate City because it would never happen,” he said. It would be recalled that in 2013, the split and legal tussle involving Brymo and Chocolate City made the headlines. It lingered, but finally ended in favour of the singer. Since then, Brymo decided to pursue his career without leaning on any label for survival. –

Bank reduce withdrawal limit on ATM_____In an effort to curtail the value of naira, affecting existing withdrawal limits on Automatic Teller Machines (ATMs) and foreign transactions on all existing Naira debit cards (ATM cards), withdrawals limit on ATM has been further reduced. In the new arrangement, all ATMs that were previously enabled for domestic and foreign transactions have been restructured to limit naira cash withdrawal at ATMs to N60,000 per day while foreign currency is $300 per day, the previous  domestic withdrawal limit was N150,000 per day. The new arrangement has also separated traditional ATM from MasterCard credit card where the former has now been deactivated and can no longer be used for transactions abroad. In the past, a single ATM card serves for transactions for both domestic and abroad. Also, the restructured cards now have spending limits on POS/eCommerce (online shopping) pegged at $300 (about N60,000) per day. Before this, the limit was N2 million per day. In the new arrangement, a bank customer with multiple debit cards (ATM cards), only the one linked to the primary transactional account will be enabled for use abroad. Hitherto, such customers could transact with any of the cards that is funded. However, banks are putting in place alternatives in these adjustments to address the concern of customers who are now being directed by their banks to reapply for a new card arrangement to suit their purposes. These new developments are coming on the heels of Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) statement on Sunday that all legitimate requests for foreign currency for eligible transactions, normally referred to as ‘invisibles,’ such as remittances for school fees, student maintenance allowances, BTA, PTA, medical and other eligible transactions, shall be fully met at the official/interbank exchange rate. A statement from the CBN added that already all the legitimate demands for such transactions through recognised channels have so far been fully met by CBN. “The CBN hereby directs all authorised dealers in foreign exchange in Nigeria to henceforth treat as top priority all legitimate demand for foreign exchange for eligible transactions. “The CBN once again advises individuals that wish to source foreign currency for such eligible transactions to approach their banks with their legitimate demand as the CBN has made adequate provisions of foreign currency for all such legitimate and eligible purposes. “Furthermore, holders of Naira denominated debit and credit cards shall continue to have access to the use of their cards at ATMs in any part of the world but subject to the annual limit of $50,000. ATM withdraws shall continue to be a maximum of $300 per day,the statement stated. –
