5 THINGS DIFFERENT ABOUT THE NEW SPIDERMAN

1. Peter Parker's Parents
The "Spider-Man" mythology has teenager Parker living with his Uncle Ben and Aunt May (Cliff Robertson and Rosemary Harris in the Sam Raimi versions, Martin Sheen and Sally Field in the new one), who have raised him after the death of his parents.
Those parents are barely mentioned in the Raimi movies, but they play a central part in "The Amazing Spider-Man" -- first in the flesh in the sequence that opens the movie, and later through Peter's discovery of a briefcase that his father left behind on the night he disappeared.
That briefcase sets the main conflict in motion, and Parker's father (played by Campbell Scott, right) remains a key figure in the central mystery that underlies the film. He has connections both to the movie's chief villain (played by Rhys Ifans) and to the unseen and wealthy but ailing industrialist Norman Osborne – who, as Spidey fans know well, might have an alter ego of his own waiting in the wings.
An extra scene that takes place shortly into the credits suggests that Parker's father will continue to figure into subsequent films.

2. Doing Shots
When Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man wanted to swing from tall buildings, he shot spider webs out of his wrists. But Garfield's superhero didn't get that particular mutation, so he has to build his own mechanical version.
Fortunately, Norman Osborne's Oscorp is like Tony Stark's Stark Industries in the "Iron Man" movies: It's your one-stop source for all the advanced technology that can be used for good or for evil. So they've got just the thing for him to use when he constructs his homemade web-shooters.

3. Print Media Is Dead
In the three Raimi movies, Peter Parker struggled to make money as a freelance photographer for the Daily Bugle newspaper, run by crusty editor J. Jonah Jameson (J.K. Simmons).
Parker is still a photographer in Webb's movie, but only a school yearbook photographer. Which means no blustery managing editor, no sympathetic assistant and no extra cash for Peter.

4. A Smart Girlfriend
Tobey Maguire dallied with both Mary Jane Watson (Dunst) and Gwen Stacy (Bryce Dallas Howard), but his iconic relationship was with Dunst – she's the one he kissed upside down in the rain in the first movie. (Her character is also the one Peter Parker married in the comic book, though the marriage was later erased in a deal with Mephisto – those comics got strange in the '80s.)
But Mary Jane doesn't appear in "The Amazing Spider-Man," which focuses on the relationship between Peter and Gwen. Instead of a would-be actress who works in a diner, this Spider-Man gets a science whiz who's smarter than he is.
In this sense, "The Amazing Spider-Man" is closer to the comics than the Raimi movies were – in the books, Stacy was always Parker's first girlfriend, with Watson not entering the picture until later.


5. More Hair!
There are lots of differences between Garfield's performance and Maguire's. For one thing, Garfield stands about a foot taller; he's less convincing as a shy kid bullied by the class jock, but more convincing when he gets his powers and kicks butt.
But Garfield, who's appealing and pretty persuasive as a conflicted teen even though he's actually 29, has one thing that sets him apart from Maguire more than any other factor: that hair.
His thick, unruly, majestic mane might be more suited to a superhero with a more hirsute alter ego – Lion-Man, perhaps? – and it's enough to make you wonder how Peter Parker crams his mop beneath that tight Spider-Man hood.
There are numerous other ways in which "The Amazing Spider-Man" is different from its predecessors, from the 3D presentation to Garfield's nuanced performance to plot points that would qualify as spoilers if we wrote about them. 
Suffice it to say this: With great power to ride on those $2.5 billion in worldwide grosses for the first three films comes great responsibility to mix things up … at least a little.

8 SUPER FOODS FOR HEALTHY HAIR...

1. Carrots
Carrots have vitamin A in abundance. Vitamin A is essential for a healthy scalp and improves vision as well. A healthy scalp ensures healthy growth of hair. Add a glass of carrot juice for breakfast and soon you will notice stronger and denser hairS

2.  Dairy Products
Yogurt, skim milk and other low fat dairy products are excellent sources of necessary minerals for healthy hair. They contain calcium; casein and whey which help maintain thick and healthy hair.

3.       Whole Grains
Whole grain cereal and bread can be used in breakfast. It will furnish your hair with vitamin B, zinc and iron. Whole grain snacks can also be used during lunch time; they will supply you with the essential nutrients.

4.       Chicken & Turkey
Poultry meat can supply you with high quality protein and iron that your hair demands. This conveniently available cheap source of high quality protein and iron can ensure the long hair you crave for.

5.       Dry Fruits
Walnuts are a terrific source of omeg-3 fatty acid and alpha linolenic acid that gives nice conditioned hair. Brazil nut is an excellent source of selenium, which is good for the scalp. Almonds, pecans and cashews are also great sources of zinc.

8.       Fish
When it comes to beauty, salmon cannot be neglected. It is padded with high quality protein like omega 3 and it also contains sufficient amounts of iron and vitamin B-12. Andrea Giancoli, a dietitian from Los Angeles believes that omega 3 fatty acid is essential for a healthy scalp.

5 FINANCIAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR COUPLES....

Say “No” to Credit Cards
No matter how minimum you have to pay interest on credit cards, it can lead your family to financial issues in the future. Although buying expensive products through credit cards is quite addictive, you can lose your money as you pay the interest on it.
The best way to get rid of credit card expenses is to avoid using it entirely. Secondly, the main purpose of a credit card is to provide a convenience to users when they do not have cash or check at the moment. In this scenario, you can certainly use a credit card. However, in other situations, try to avoid it and adjust your finances in a much better way.

Do Not Opt for Car Financing
Cars are one of those products that companies market heavily. They induce their potential customers to buy the car they have always dream of. Many of these customers buy the car by availing car financing options. However, financial experts strictly say that you should never go for car financing. The main reason behind this advice is that buying a car on lease makes you spend a lot of money on a single car. Similarly, the amount of money spent in repaying car loan could be used in something else. Therefore, always make full payment if you want to buy a car.

Educate Your Kids Smartly
Did you ever notice how much money gets wasted in tuition fees and other miscellaneous expenses related to education? If you make a rough estimate, you will be surprised to know the education spending. However, now, it is the right time to think about how you can invest your money smartly. Consider community colleges for your kids’ education because these are less-expensive.

Start Planning For Your Future
Wise couples always plan for retirement early. Therefore, saving for your retirement holds a strong significance. Avoid impulse purchases as much as you can. This is how you are going to save a lot for your retirement.


ADELE IS PREGNANT...

SAMUEL ETO'O MAY BE JAILED...

Cameroonian striker and the world’s highest paid footballer, Samuel Eto’o, may be facing between one and five years in a Spanish prison over tax fraud allegation.
According to media reports from Spain, he has been accused of conspiring to evade 3.5 million euros in taxes owed on income from his image rights while he was playing for FC Barcelona between 2006 and 2009.
The Anzhi Makhachkala’s hitman, concealed over €3.5 million from the country’s treasury, while he was playing for FC Barcelona between 2006 and 2009.
The Cameroonian received the money from the Catalan club and major German sportswear manufacturer, Puma, but reportedly declared different sources of income, from firms in Spain and Hungary – in order to reduce tax payments.
If the 31-year-old is found guilty he’s at risk of spending from one to five years in prison and paying a fine more than six times higher than the sum he allegedly tried to hide.
This aint funny at all...why get involved in all these if ur earning well enough to settle ur taxes

HOW ABOUT GENITALS FOR BRUNCH

Japanese police are weighing up whether an ‘asexual’ man who cooked his own severed genitals and served them to five paying diners committed a crime, it has emerged.
Mao Sugiyama, 22, had his penis and testicles surgically removed in March and kept them frozen for two months before cooking them at a public event in May.
Diners each paid £160 for a portion which was garnished with mushrooms and parsley. Before tucking into dinner, guests sat down to listen to a piano recital.
The police probe came after the mayor of Suginami ward, the Tokyo district where the event took place, said it had involved the display of obscene objects.
Mayor Ryo Tanaka said: ‘Many residents of Suginami and elsewhere have expressed a sense of discomfort and feeling of apprehension over this.’
A Tokyo police spokesman said she was aware of the complaint but declined to comment any further.
Sugiyama, a painter who defines himself as ‘asexual’, has also not responded to the fact he could now be prosecuted.
But he has previously confirmed the event had taken place and said it was organised to raise awareness about ‘sexual minorities, x-gender, asexual people’.
it is very awful

HEART ATTACK SYMPTOMS....

I quite know how inspiring it is to listen to Young Forever by Jay Z and Mr Hudson but here are 10 heart attack symptoms you're likely to ignore.
1. Indigestion or nausea
One of the most oft-overlooked signs of a heart attack is nausea and stomach pain. Symptoms can range from mild indigestion to severe nausea, cramping, and vomiting. Others experience a cramping-style ache in the upper belly. Women and adults over age 60 are more likely to experience this symptom and not recognize it as tied to cardiac health.
Most cases of stomach ache and nausea aren't caused by a heart attack, of course. But watch out for this sign by becoming familiar with your own digestive habits; pay attention when anything seems out of the ordinary, particularly if it comes on suddenly and you haven't been exposed to stomach flu and haven't eaten anything out of the ordinary.

2. Jaw, ear, neck, or shoulder pain
A sharp pain and numbness in the chest, shoulder, and arm is an indicator of heart attack, but many people don't experience heart attack pain this way at all. Instead, they may feel pain in the neck or shoulder area, or it may feel like it’s running along the jaw and up by the ear. Some women specifically report feeling the pain between their shoulder blades.
A telltale sign: The pain comes and goes, rather than persisting unrelieved, as a pulled muscle would. This can make the pain both easy to overlook and difficult to pinpoint. You may notice pain in your neck one day, none the next day, then after that it might have moved to your ear and jaw. If you notice pain that seems to move or radiate upwards and out, this is important to bring to your doctor’s attention.

3. Sexual dysfunction
Having trouble achieving or keeping erections is common in men with coronary artery disease, but they may not make the connection. Just as arteries around the heart can narrow and harden, so can those that supply the penis -- and because those arteries are smaller, they may show damage sooner. One survey of European men being treated for cardiovascular disease found that two out of three had suffered from erectile dysfunction before they were ever diagnosed with heart trouble.

4. Exhaustion or fatigue
A sense of crushing fatigue that lasts for several days is another sign of heart trouble that's all too often overlooked or explained away. Women, in particular, often look back after a heart attack and mention this symptom. More than 70 percent of women in last year's NIH study, for example, reported extreme fatigue in the weeks or months prior to their heart attack.
The key here is that the fatigue is unusually strong -- not the kind of tiredness you can power through but the kind that lays you flat out in bed. If you're normally a fairly energetic person and suddenly feel sidelined by fatigue, a call to your doctor is in order.

5. Breathlessness and dizziness
When your heart isn't getting enough blood, it also isn't getting enough oxygen. And when there's not enough oxygen circulating in your blood, the result is feeling unable to draw a deep, satisfying breath -- the same feeling you get when you're at high elevation. Additional symptoms can be light-headedness and dizziness. But sadly, people don't attribute this symptom to heart disease, because they associate breathing with the lungs, not the heart.
In last year's NIH study, more than 40 percent of women heart attack victims remembered experiencing this symptom. A common description of the feeling: "I couldn't catch my breath while walking up the driveway."

6. Leg swelling or pain
When the heart muscle isn't functioning properly, waste products aren't carried away from tissues by the blood, and the result can be edema, or swelling caused by fluid retention. Edema usually starts in the feet, ankles, and legs because they're furthest from the heart, where circulation is poorer. In addition, when tissues don't get enough blood, it can lead to a painful condition called ischemia. Bring swelling and pain to the attention of your doctor.

7. Sleeplessness, insomnia, and anxiety
This is an odd one doctors can't yet explain. Those who've had heart attacks often remember experiencing a sudden, unexplained inability to fall asleep or stay asleep during the month or weeks before their heart attack. (Note: If you already experience insomnia regularly, this symptom can be hard to distinguish.)
Patients often report the feeling as one of being "keyed up" and wound tight; they remember lying in bed with racing thoughts and sometimes a racing heart. In the NIH report, many of the women surveyed reported feeling a sense of "impending doom," as if a disaster were about to occur. If you don't normally have trouble sleeping and begin to experience acute insomnia and anxiety for unexplained reasons, speak with your doctor.

8. Flu-like symptoms
Clammy, sweaty skin, along with feeling light-headed, fatigued, and weak, leads some people to believe they're coming down with the flu when, in fact, they're having a heart attack. Even the feeling of heaviness or pressure in the chest -- typical of some people's experience in a heart attack -- may be confused with having a chest cold or the flu.
If you experience severe flu-like symptoms that don't quite add up to the flu (no high temperature, for example), call your doctor or advice nurse to talk it over. Watch out also for persistent wheezing or chronic coughing that doesn't resolve itself; that can be a sign of heart disease, experts say. Patients sometimes attribute these symptoms to a cold or flu, asthma, or lung disease when what's happening is that poor circulation is causing fluid to accumulate in the lungs.

9. Rapid-fire pulse or heart rate
One little-known symptom that sometimes predates a heart attack is known as ventricular tachycardia, more commonly described as rapid and irregular pulse and heart rate. During these episodes, which come on suddenly, you feel as if your heart is beating very fast and hard, like you just ran up a hill -- except you didn't. "I'd look down and I could actually see my heart pounding," one person recalled. It can last just a few seconds or longer; if longer, you may also notice dizziness and weakness.
Some patients confuse these episodes with panic attacks. Rapid pulse and heartbeat that aren't brought on by exertion always signal an issue to bring to your doctor's attention.

10. You just don't feel like yourself
Heart attacks in older adults (especially those in their 80s and beyond, or in those who have dementia or multiple health conditions), can mimic many other conditions. But an overall theme heard from those whose loved ones suffered heart attacks is that in the days leading up to and after a cardiac event, they "just didn't seem like themselves."
A good rule of thumb, experts say, is to watch for clusters of symptoms that come on all at once and aren't typical of your normal experience. For example, a normally alert, energetic person suddenly begins to have muddled thinking, memory loss, deep fatigue, and a sense of being "out of it." The underlying cause could be something as simple as a urinary tract infection, but it could also be a heart attack. If your body is doing unusual things and you just don't feel "right," don't wait. See a doctor and ask for a thorough work-up.
And if you have any risk factors for cardiac disease, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, or family history of heart disease, make sure the doctor knows about those issues, too.

FLOODED LAGOS

If you remember the last flood in Lagos, then, its here again like season two.I dont have a picture to explain it but having to fold up your jeans to your knee level just within your house and getting to the streets and most cars are just static at various points the rain met them...residents had to wake up at about 4am to drain water off their homes, then its really a season two and more crazy.
We are told its a 7 seven days rain in Lagos and its just the fourth day...what do we expect next..God be with us all

ELOHOR TAKES CHARGE...

Congrats to Elohor Elizabeth Aisien, founder, beth modelling agency...as she is now the creative director for the Miss Nigeria beauty pageant that was handled by former beauty queen, Nike Oshinowo-Soleye.
Eventhough Nike did a good job during her 2 year routine, am of the opinion that the pageant is in better hands now because it will be managed by a woman who knows what it takes to run one of the biggest modelling agency in Africa...with an archive of great catwalkers and charming models...

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY...

What do you think about this...am still dumbfounded myself....
One of the world’s foremost economists, Professor George Ayittey has lashed out at the President of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan (GEJ), describing him as “a joke” and a mediocre President after his (GEJ’s) encounter with the media on sunday night.
According to Professor Ayittey, Nigeria “deserves a better leader”, judging by GEJ’s poor, almost unfortunate responses to some of the questions posed to him by the Nigerian media last night.
The Professor indicated that GEJ’s refusal to declare his assets and his failure to tackle the Boko Haram crisis suggest that he is of an unsound mind.
He has not visited Borno state, the center of Boko Haram attacks, because the airport there was not functional at the time he planned to visit. “And we did not want to land somewhere and fly in to Maiduguri with a helicopter for obvious reasons.”
Why is the airport not functioning? Why hasn’t it been fixed? And are there no roads into Borno State?

• Asked why he had not declared his assets, Mr. Jonathan replied in an impatient tone, stating “I don’t give a damn” about declaration of assets. He related that he had gone to the late President Umaru Yar’Adua to caution “that we should not play to the hands of some people [by openly declaring their assets.” Mr. Jonathan added, “That is a matter of principle and I am not going to declare. It is not the president declaring his asset that will end Boko Haram.”

• The president said it’s a matter of principle and whether he is criticised from “head to toe” he will not declare his assets. “It is not right,” he said. “I didn’t want even want to declare my assets as VP” but was forced by the then president, Umara Musa Yar’Adua. He said asset declaration is “not the right thing to do.”
Damn it, it is a constitutional requirement to declare your assets, Mr. President. See Chapter VI, Part 1, Section 140 of Nigeria’s Constitution: “Declaration of assets and liabilities, oaths of President.” And what the hell has Boko Haram got to do with declaration of assets?

• Agriculture: The president said his government is revolutionizing agriculture in Nigeria.”We are giving cotton seeds free in the North” he said.
This is the most crass definition of an “agricultural revolution” – by providing free seeds.

• The President said the government is doing very well in railway construction. “You may not know, but we are working,” he said. He added that his government has made a “significant progress” in railway construction. “You should commend us,” he adds.
What “significant progress” has been made in railway construction? How many Nigerians are working on railway construction with the contract given to Chinese firms?

• UNILAG name change: The president said what he did, in terms of law, was correct. You change the name first, then send the bill to the National Assembly later, he argues. “What we did, was the normal procedure,” he said.
No, Mr. Presient, you had it backward. Before you change the name of University of Lagos (UNILAG), you consult with the university and the student body, which you did NOT do.

• Crude Oil Theft: “The stealing of crude oil is a Nigerian phenomenon,” the president said. He adds that it has gone cancerous. “We will stop it, but it is like allowing a cancerous cell to grow into a major tumor.”
Mr. President, theft of crude oil is a CRIME, not a “Nigerian phenomenon or a disease afflicting Nigerians. Describing it that way means you are CLUELESS about how to solve it.

UNIVERSITY EDUCATION PALAVA

When i got a call this morning from a friend trying to confirm the suspension of part time studies across universities in Nigeria by NUC...I was like...what again this time...am not here to convince them to stop the suspension but let them be reassured that they are putting the economic status of this nation at a full stop. Majority of the part time students work their brains out to keep their life, marriage, family and friends together..not forgetting that they pay lots of naira to study. I am a PROUD part time student and i must say...its not easy combining study with work.
Moreso, we have important issues to address right now...if you know what am talking about...Part time studies is not peculiar to Nigeria and we all cannot run a full time study, especially, those fortunate enough to get a job, have they thought about students who dont have sponsors or students whom their parents are pensioners...I SAY NO TO THIS INJUSTICE

SPICE GIRLS REUNITING...

It was a Spice Girl reunion in London on Tuesday when Melanie Brown, Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, and Melanie Chisholm came together to drum up interest in "Viva Forever," an upcoming musical based on the hit songs of the '90s girl group.

The event took place at St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel, where the Spice Girls filmed their music video for "Wannabe" back in 1996. The women looked better than ever as they gathered to talk about "Viva Forever," which will be produced by Judy Craymer, the mastermind behind the ABBA musical, "Mamma Mia!" The show centers around four women whose friendship is put to the test when their band competes on a TV talent-competition show. The musical, which opens this fall, will feature hit songs made famous by the Spice Girls, who sold 75 million records around the world.
"They sing it better than us," Melanie Brown, better known as Scary Spice, told the Associated Press, referring to the cast of the musical.
The Spice Girls formed in 1994 and shot to fame two years later when they released their debut single, "Wannabe." Some of their other hit songs include "Say You'll Be There," "Spice Up Your Life," and "Viva Forever," which was the inspiration for the name of the musical.  Halliwell left the group in 1998, and while the remaining four continued to make music together, they called it quits in 2000. This is the first Spice Girls appearance since they all participated in a reunion tour in 2007 and 2008. After the event, Beckham — who is now based in Los Angeles where her husband, David, plays soccer for the L.A. Galaxy  — immediately headed back to the States, but the Spice Girls were on her mind. "On my way home!! Thank you @MelanieCmusic @OfficialMelB @EmmaBunton @GeriHalliwell for an amazing day!! "
"Viva Forever" begins previews in November, then opens at London's Piccadilly Theatre on December 11.

MOBILE LIBRARY

This is something really cool being set up in Colombia – mobile libraries at bus stations and in parks. This is done in an effort to encourage young ones and adults to read.
Hmmmmmm...am speechless about doing this business in naija because i know my people very well.., even the one wey dey public building library, dem no dey return, na dis one dem go return...for where...What do you guys think?

STILL ON UNILAG OR...

A federal high court has partially restrained the federal government from renaming UNILAG as MAULAG...I cant believe the nation is still dragging this matter, my fellow Unilag babes and dudes, please move on and respect the fact that your school is given a respectable name, we all know what that name means when it comes to the democratic growth of our nation....and court sef dey adjourn the matter..lol...na murder case

MARRIAGE BILL...

Its time the legislative arm of the Nigerian government take a stand and pass a bill on marriage in Nigeria because the level of divorce and separation..or whatever term is being used..is getting out of hand...recently admitted into the "club" yet again is Household of God Pastor, Chris Okotie, for the second time.
I personally suggest a marraige time of 15 years, then, any child between the couples must have been matured enough to know the problem between his or her parents, except for cases of no child bearing.
If not for anything...for the sake of the children, its very traumatic i must say..i rest my case here

7 DAYS RAIN...

Dear money making Lagosians, this is to officially warn you against the 7 days rain coming soon...like a movie..whether its true or not...i think all corporate organizations should just grant all their workers a leave for that period..or what do you think, infact, it should be declared a public holiday jamboree.

NOT AGAIN GOLDIE...

First, it was a scene of vomiting for the sake of love for prezzo...humpty dumpty..after, she had replaced prezzo with kaita, she started her emotional drama of tears after barbz was evicted from the stargame.
i really dont understand the trauma of crying over split milk...if you wanted barbz to stay, why didnt you just send your lover out of the house.
Now, its going to be more dramatic because Goldie will have Lady May to compete with..being the only two female stars left.
I thought she is strong emotionally but seeing Goldie kneeling and begging barbz...blaaaa...and after she was evicted, the face was hidden in shame....too bad Goldie

KATE MIDDLETON

Do you know that The Duchess goes to her favorite salon, Richard Ward Hair and Metrospa in London, three times a week for $75 blowouts. "She loves her time there and she has known everyone there for years so it's really relaxing for her." Hair salon visits at least 156 times a year?! Must be nice.
Yeaaaa...so much for living large in the royal family...go Kate

OLA RAY...STILL GRATEFUL @ 51

Do you remember the thriller video...then i guess this woman must ring a bell...Ola Ray is still grateful for the opportunity to feature in Guiness Book of Records, most successful music video of all time.
"When we did the dancing, when he had to walk around me and flirt with me … That was when I was like 'Oh my God, like Ola, I could not believe I was the girl, I was the one chosen,'" she told ABC News in a 2010 interview.
Jackson was playful off-camera as well.
"He kept saying, 'I can't wait until I do the werewolf scenes so I can chase you,'"
Despite suing the Michael Jackson production company in 2009 for the payment of her royalties, "I have a huge poster of Michael, just of himself and then I have the 25th Anniversary album," she said in the ABC News interview. "Then, I have a picture of us walking together in the video … I see Michael every morning when i wake up

GIRLS...

Am not here to gossip about girls but its always a funny site when you see two girls fighting...but for SS2 and SS3 Students..taking on themselves...thats a war.
I went to a boarding house myself and i know what it feels like to have seniors order you around...we survived it anyways but these girls used Hoes used for Agric science practicals, bottles of soft drinks, peanuts and others brought by caring families, razor, cutleries and others came in handy in the final hours of preparing. Insecticides became lethal weapons when sprayed into naked fire from hidden matches and lighters, which the smokers among the students tucked away. i mean it was total cult war...
i really dont know whats happening at our secondary school these days...and these days, there are so much reports about girls stabbing eachother and so on...my question, IS THIS THE WAY THEY RUN THE WORLD...am just asking ?

ME AND POLITICS...

Talking bout politics in Naija is a very serious issue because you tend to hear more than a hundred view of the subject matter...from sports, education, media, health, power...all the way to aviation and politics.
When i started this blog, i never had the intention of dating politics, let alone get engaged with it but i had to just take that step of faith because i actually had a lot of regard for Hon,Farouk Lawan...he is a true leader who knows the essence of governance and who values his presence at the legislative house...Now, i have to dine with politics in expressing shock over the truth behind the bribe scandal...some Naijarians are not surprised at all but for me...and politics, i would have to wait to see the end of these series...and you begin to wonder if there is any genuine legislator in Nigeria.

THE VILLAGE HEADMASTER IS GONE...

The village headmaster is gone...not just from television but for real after being admitted for 2 weeks at an hospital in Lagos...where do i begin to talk about this great promoter of the Nigerian Art and Culture...if you watched the tv series back then, you will know that we have lost a rare gem.
i cannot do a poetry but an interaction with him will boost your love for literature, linguistics and cultural love of your race...
Ambassador Segun Olusola died at the age of 78..i say..you have truly accomplished your mission on earth eventhough you departed from the hospital but may you rest peacefully in the bosom of your creator.
i will admonish that all his projects should be taken up and given proper attention and a documentary film can be produced in his honour...

PREZOLDIE

Dont get confused about that name..its just what i coined out from the romantica happening between Goldie and Prezzo at the Big Brother StarGame...at first, it seem like i was beefing them until everyone had a similar view about them and i was fortunate to catch one or two glimpse about the duo.
I think Goldie is not representing naija well aside the cooking and house keeping thingy which most of the past female representatives of BBA are known for...from vomiting...to sulking over some silly things and now....am just speechless but cant speak about it but rather write about it.
If its a strategy...i believe there are other great way of letting your fans and viewers of the show know that..ohhh, she is just fooling him....its just a matter of time before the real truth is unveiled, a game or love...and who would leave the house first and who would stay...

FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS

Hey guys, this is not an interpretation of the movie but a value gotten from being friends with great people, their imperfection is what keeps the relationship going.For 4 years now, have been friends with some people weird, young and creative humans who are always by my side no matter what...talk of the good, bad and ugly...very ugly moments, like in the examination hall whereby i have gone blank in a partucular course...despite making fun of ourselves, we still enjoy our company and share a bowl of popcorn  together.
The truth here is...a friend will always be a  friend...no matter what...and i mean it. You dont have to wait long to get the benefits...simply be a benefit yourself by listening....Be a good listener and you will see how beneficial friendship can be...You could save that dude or lady from committing suicide, abortion or murder.

JUST LIKE HIS BROS..

I say thumbs up to you kswitch...even going further to feature dbanj makes it awesome...always remember that the sky is big enough to take many birds and certainly the ground is big enough to welcome the birds that fall off...i mean, hold on tight to your game and dont let this get into your head, in fact put your brother to a fight.

OMG...JOAN

I never knew that the Fashion Police Host, Joan Rivers has undergone cosmetic surgery  for 734 times...i was informed by a friend after seeing an episode of the show on E!. This is just so ridiculous...i mean..please ask me if i remember what happened to the likes of MJ.May his soul rest in peace.
She is the police and so, no one can arrest her...i dont know if she is violating the cosmetic law...
May i inform you she is 78 years old...

MO...NO..NO

Now, this is what stardom does to some people...where they begin to act beautifully strange...we all know you are a creative artiste but try and be creative with your sense of fashion, perhaps, you need an experienced stylist to coach you on proper dressing...wake up mocheddah, this is Africa...infact, this isn't about being Afican...she is meant to be a role model to some girls out there and so i say, whats your sermon on the mount about.

PSQUARE AND RICK ROSS

After the days of listening to the first and second album of Psquare, i wasn't thrilled about their recent musical strengths...more so, the Akin thingy didn't come out well for me but right now, i need to take a bow for the following reasons...Getting a Rick Ross gives their music an edge...that we all know anyway...Engee and those that worked on this  new video...i say bravo cause the camera pictures are so clean and crispy, the all white scenes is so beautiful and artistic and bringing in Rick Ross later in the video was better than establishing Akon in the Chop My  Money video.
Even though Rick didn't drop too much but he added some cool spice to the video...and the boat cruise was awesome.
I am proud of you guys...i guess am on a clean slate with them now.

ZAYN IS JUST 19...

When i was 19, l had no clue of what the future will bring on caus i was basically living with my parents but...i must say an thrilled reading about Zayn Malik, a member of the New Directions. He just bought a house at North London worth 2.2 Million Pounds.
Its quite interesting to know that something worth doing is worth doing well...School is necessary but if you discover something great in your child...you know the rest of the line i guess.

IS THIS A JOKE...

Is Karen qualified as a radio presenter...ofcourse..with a loud YES, she is a winner of BBA..and that makes her a celebrity fit enough for the job...but what about the hundreds of guys and babes seeking a similar job and dont get the chance...and they keep giving you that quote, you have no experience.
please, the fact that all these people go for some fancy reality shows doesn't make  them fit enough for certain jobs...because you are a comedian doesn't equal you as a good compere of a corporate event, a good actress might not be a better television host.
I will personally relate with her based on the reality show pull off but can i connect with her like some awesome radio host...no way.

THE KIM KANYE LOVE DRAMA

Its still on and am sure many are waiting for that moment of truth when...you know...kanye leaves her or she leaves him...whats with the car gift drama anyway...is it realy true love or a P.R strategy..
The 2012 Lamborghini Aventador doesn’t leave much change from $400,000. The Aventador LP700-4 can do 0-60 in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 350 km per hour.

NEA AND ITS CATEGORIES

The NEA is here again but what bothers me is the avalanche of categories for the event....the best entertainment personality for instance...what is the basis of that category when you find out the nominees which include tuface, dbanj, tonto, who are meant to be in the movie and music category.
Again...whats with the entertainment executive category...i might be wrong but have got a problem with the title of that category...scenerios like this signals the normal trend that awards in naija are like sharholding, whoever has the largest asset takes over the day.
I must credit the first edition of the awards but it seems it has lost its focus for reward excellence in the industry.

Yoruba Movie Academy Awards.....LOL

what on earth is called the yoruba movie academy awards....its amazing what our entertainers come up with in this century..this is the most absurd way to recognise the contributions of the yoruba movie stars in the film industry considering the fact that there are other yoruba movie awards already created by some other people...moreso, having movie awards should be based on standards and not on sentiments like ours..standards like drama series awards, screenwriters and so on....and last time i checked, the african movie academy awards is still in existence...

Gene on the move again...

When an actress has decided to step up her game..am not talking about being in the news for fights, husband or boyfriend take over, drunk driving....its about a good public relations development...from beauty branding to beverages...hmmmm...now,a range rover ambassador in naija...now, tongues are rolling....who gives a damm about what people think right now, its all about the goodwill
