ALEXX EKUBO, A RISING NAME IN NOLLYWOOD

Alex Ekubo reminds me of Pat Attah and Ramsey Nouah back in the days of Fortunes...what makes his story outstanding is being a runner up in a male pageant and he also doubles as a model, that means, joining the make-believe industry is just an icing on the cake.

We could easily conclude there are certain favors here and there flowing into his valley but watching few of his acting skills has proved that he sure has a good place in Nollywood...I totally respected his delivery in All That Glitters, even though, a friend still questioned that sort of casting but I was cool with it because the wife did not look too bigger than him in personae.

Alex has his fine boy figure working for him, a dialogue we have heard in several movies, especially Weekend Getaway and these days, a lot of people advocate for sexy guys and ladies as casts in films, which was evident in Lagos Cougars...If Alex maintains his body very well, he should last a long time because he will fit into any role unlike some actors who have generated bellies and are gradually fading into the background...

Alex could be termed as another Ramsey due to the similar fine boy personae and swag but his name rings a bell anywhere and ladies do love his delivery anytime...Alex studied Law at the University of Calabar and a Diploma in Mass Communication at The Polytechnic Calabar...This is a true definition of a Career.
I attended Federal Government College Daura, Katsina Sate, then proceeded to study Law at the University of Calabar, and did my Diploma in Mass Communication at the Calabar Polytechnic. - See more at: http://www.genevieveng.com/chillin-with-alex-ekubo/#sthash.MkiGB9cv.dpuf

IS THE DAME AIMING FOR PRESIDENT?

Dame Patience Jonathan is no doubt Nigeria's First and only recognized Lady and she has faithfully carried out her duty in and out of the Villa...She has also gone further to carry out some socio-political duties which seem more like a presidential action but can we really question her moves,considering the huge lifestyle given to the office of the First Lady...

She is actually the only First Lady I know who is quite active like a President but she is just the wife and they are just supporting roles to what their Heads do...but who tamed her lately, Is she silent because of the 2015 elections, Is she planning to run for Presidency because I wont be surprised considering her vocal strength towards the Rivers Crisis and other sociopolitical may hems around the country.

She is definitely up to something, I can smell it even though the Villa is quite far from my door step and am surprised she did not utter a word or statement as regards to the Letter written to her hubby, Mr President, except if, she is privately expressing her thoughts to her husband, so as to avoid the media hype of her opinion...

The media can also approach her various spokesperson and let Nigerians know what exactly his happening to Mama Peace... 

UBA'S DEFINITION OF CUSTOMER SERVICE

If there is a job that requires a balanced mind, it is the Customer Service Representative and this you can find in any field of work across the globe. They are actually prominent in Service Providers like Banking, Telecom, Health, Media and so on but in Nigeria, a lot of Customer Reps. do have a personality issue and they do not deal with it appropriately by seeking counselling.

There are various experiences that i have encountered, most common is the Telecom sector and the ladies are usually the weird ones here...Some of them lack respect and courtesy over the phone, especially when you cannot express yourself very well, then, they rudely direct you to their online service.

I used to feel a negative mind towards UBA but when i experienced their style of treating customers at a particular branch, i had to respect anyone who takes up customer service as a career. Even though it comes with its challenges, having your client as top priority gives your career and life a defined look and you can quantify the amount of respect that comes from doing your job to the point.

When you treat people right, they want to keep banking and neither will they want to move their account away from your bank, and it is more than your Degree from College but it has to do with proper respect and value for your job..the amount of friends and network you build cannot be quantified as a customer service representative.

There are situations where your clients do not mind waiting longer, just to be attended to because they are certain that their complaints will be well attended to..this is exactly the situation at this branch..It is more than referring your clients to your Online service but having a physical open conversation with your client and their financial management of their money.

THE ONE NIGERIAN BOY...TERENCE SAMBO












 Terence Sambo is a regular dude but he actually started One Nigerian Boy because he wanted to create a medium for Africans in the diaspora and around Africa to experience African Fashion & Style but his own personal style is constantly evolving and changing as he get inspired by loads of stuff.

This Graduate Degree in Marketing from Covenant University says there's been a massive growth spurt in the Nigerian Fashion scene, thanks to the likes of LFDW and Arise Magazine. African fashion is still however in its infancy. The industry needs more investment and education.

When I asked him about those he has styled, this is what he had to say - I don't keep tabs really. I think it's a bit pretentious to name drop. I'm not a stylist for celebrity sake. I do it because I love the creative process.

Like every other typical Nigerian kid. He was taught to be polite, hardworking and treat every human regardless of race, color or class with equal respect. Terence always wanted to be a banker but somehow ended up in the fashion industry and he has continued to prove a mark in that region.

HANGING OUT AT THE CINEMA DOESN'T MAKE YOU HIP...

It was good news to our ears when Nigerians suddenly woke up to the cinema culture, just like those days back but in a more contemporary way, alongside shopping, lounging and more...It is still a great treat for families, friends or foes...LOL...yes, but do not let anyone make you less inferior if you have not stepped at the door of a cinema to view even a short film, though, i do pick on some colleagues who do not go the cinema, at least to relax their stressed mind...

I believe going to the cinema does not make you hip and I say that because there are certain people who do not have a good balanced etiquette when viewing a film..unfortunately, Ladies are more concerned here..Yes, I do enjoy the sarcasm, humor, laughter or tears being expressed when viewing a thriller but sometimes you need to seal up some mouth by your side.

Recently, I was at a cinema in Lagos to view Lagos Cougars, by the way, thumbs up to Emem Isong and Desmond Elliot for that beautiful flick...The girl that sat beside me was completely lousy but i guess she felt hip and cool by that attitude..she talked all through the film, she did more analysis with the individual character rather than the role and story...

That is just one of the everyday scenes we encounter at the cinema and most girls or guys feel hip hopped going to the cinema, holding a pack of pop corn, a drink, a girl by your left and right...and I don't mean a date...This is not beefing defined but some of us just want to have a good time at the cinema without the unnecessary noise from some random people..remember, the cinema does not make you HIP...





SAVE OLUMIDE BAKARE

Veteran Actor, Olumide Bakare is down with an heart ailment..I believe his colleagues will not fold their hands and watch him waste away...Is there any health insurance or policy guiding the professional work of our actors because these guys go through a lot of stress to make money and  also make money for some producers, yet, they get knocked out with one big ailment or the other.

It is also important they take some vacation after a period of time and not moving around location for the rest of the year, also, certain check ups must be done before you subject an actor to a very stressful role, considering the age factor and health records..you should not subject being talented to making money over your health.

We should not lose another great actor, let us save Olumide Bakare today.

NIGERIA MUSIC INDUSTRY- A CAREER NOT A NURSERY SCHOOL

My love for music cannot be over emphasized, its soothes your soul at every point in time...day or night, and i mean global music but who says i can forget music coming from my root as an African...Even the beats of Juju does some magic to my body...Even Shakespeare admits-''If music be the food of love...

I cannot stand and watch the Nigerian scene mess up our heads with so much noise some people theme as music to the ears..Yes, we are Africans and we love the loud beats, we love to jump around listening to music but what about the messages, the poetry, the proverbs...these are what we find with King Sunny Ade, Bright Chimezie, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Sir Victor Uwaifo, Lagbaja, Stella Monye and so on...

Recently, the music industry has been flooded with so many children who are meant to be in school, who are meant to be under the close watch of their parents or guardian...it is quite sad that even the media would sit and give them a pass mark on their report card at the end of the year...the media should close its eyes in shame.

Music business globally is a career for the right people, they grow in it, their lyrics, beats, personality, influence and so on..it is not a nursery school where the children do not know their left from right and are being cuddled by their teachers...you must know your A game before starting a career in music, irrespective of any challenges that might confront you...it is time we put a stop to this menace...we have little children who have been influenced beyond normal...every one now sings SEX...very loud without caution or alarm...

You do not sing about sex like we are all naive about it, you sing sex in a sultry way that only the matured balanced mind would be able to interpret the message and not having small grown girls shake their entire eternity before our very eyes...or very vulgar languages...is that a career what laying as a principle...?

WHEN THE WORLD STOOD STILL FOR MADIBA...

I am glad to resume blogging after about 7 months...and writing about this Legend is so awesome. I did not meet Nelson Mandela physically but his life was right in my face, not because i am an African but Madiba lived a life worthy of emulation, He represented what humanity stands for...In summary, He came, He saw and He conquered...Let us take a critical look into that last part...He conquered....

I am not here to replicate the same Eulogy that might have been written across the globe by various Social Writers but i will show you various inspirational quotes by Madiba...Majority of the world leaders flew miles to South Africa to pay their last respect to this great man...Even Kirk Franklyn performed right under the rain....This is not a time to mourn but a time to celebrate ''Tata'' as his fondly called...




Let us all live for today...do you know where your body would end, do you know those who will stand by your grave and lay flowers at your annual anniversary...do you know how you will be remembered after your demise...Madiba will forever be remembered because he lived and his legacies are forever....

OMG! IS DAVIDO REALLY WORSHIPPED...?

One of the greatest thing about being famous is when a lot people chose to reckon with your personality and character..and they can call you a mentor or an inspiration in their line of career...In this age, there are certain influences everywhere in music, movie, fashion and so on..I have my own and so do you but am sure there is no precise criteria in choosing our mentor...Davido happens to be a super mentor or god that someone is worshipping...

An Upcoming musician based in Lagos is obsessed with Davido. The aspiring Hip-Hop artist whose name is Ajisafe Sunday Babatunde but prefers to be called ADO disclosed that he has two Gods.One is God almighty and ‘Almighty Davido’. The artist who is preparing to launch his first album sees Davido as a big MENTOR and has even released a track entitled “Davido I won’t let you down” http://www.hulkshare.com/Ado-Music. The song is already enjoying massive airplay in radio stations across Lagos in just one week it was released. When asked if he has seen Davido before, he said no but he is looking forward to meeting him.

In his words; “I have not seen him before, I tried sending him email, he did not reply. I don’t have his phone number. There was even a day I went to his house, his gate man did not allow me in. I was disappointed”. Despite the continued rejection, the talented HIP-HOP artist, ADO is determined to succeed in his music career. Seriously, i am supposed to laugh out loud but i will simply overlook it and just watch where this is heading to...because i am totally lost at this quest..Davido himself needs lots of mentors if i must say...

ADO actually knows his mission in making Davido a god after another God...If you actually get through to Davido which i know you will because the social media has raised the bar for you by talking about it including me..please, take it easy with your mission..All that glitters in the throat ain't a palatable music...


JANET JACKSON NOW A MUSLIM...RELOCATES TO MIDDLE EAST

Love has no boundaries and cares less about tribe, colour, race, business, but these days, it cares about money...Ladies are always concerned about how much is in your bank wallet aka..bank accounts..I am not saying true love does not exist but to an extent, a girl flows with you once she knows you live large..i mean, really large...I do not know if that is the case of Music Star, Janet Jackson who has been in and out love for a while...

I find it very thrilling for Janet Jackson to quit Music for the sake of love..it is a great step to express and define how you feel about someone, and she is not only quitting music but she is becoming a muslim...Now, this is the power of love Celine Dion must be singing about...Janet Jackson has finally moved to the Middle East in order to raise a family with her Arab husband Wissam Al Mana 46-year-old. Janet Jackson secretly married 37-year-old Wissam last year after over 3 years of courtship.a Qatar native, is involved in his family’s controlled Middle-East-based Al Mana Retail Group.

This is Janet's third marriage and am sure everyone including the media is waiting and watching to see how long she will go with this one...She should not mess up this one because she has given up music and her religion...

Janet Damita Jo Jackson(born May 16, 1966) is an American recording artist and actress. Known for a series of sonically innovative, socially conscious and sexually provocative records, as well as elaborate stage shows, television appearances, and film roles, she has been a prominent figure in popular culture since the early 1970s.

EAT THESE FOODS AND SPICE UP YOUR SEX LIFE...

One of the many concerns about couples these days is their sex life...I am no expert in giving remedy but i just feel some little basics could actually bring the spark into our sexual lives...we should not take it too seriously like some Doctorate examination at Harvard...I believe that because its divinely created by God, then, we can get the answers naturally..

I stumbled on some healthy tips online and i decided to share it with you guys...Do you know there are some foods that can truly do the magic and that is why a balanced diet is always good at all times...Eat healthy and you will see great results in your sex life...Endeavor to eat the following foods and you can drive all the way to climax..

The first is watermelon - This refreshing summer fruit is rich in L-citrulline, an amino acid that helps improve blood flow to the sexual organs. It’s like Nature’s Viagra -  without the side effects. L-citrulline optimizes blood flow in the body by first converting to L-arginine and then to nitric oxide, which is involved in dilation of the blood vessels. Low levels of nitric oxide are associated with mental and physical fatigue and sexual dysfunction.

The second is Dark Chocolates - Dark chocolate’s many benefits are well documented, including its ability to mimic the sensation of being in love. Few people will argue with the fact that chocolate makes one feel really good. This is not just because of the taste and texture, it’s also thanks to a chemical in chocolate, called phenylethylamine (also called the “love chemical”), believed to produce the feeling of being in love. Research has also found that women who enjoyed a piece of chocolate every day had a more active sex life than those who didn’t.

Pumpkin seeds are ground to produce “egusi”, the popular Nigerian delicacy. Pumpkin seeds are a great libido booster for both men and women as they’re said to increase sexual appetite and desire. Like oysters, pumpkin seeds are very rich in zinc, which is important for testosterone. Even though women have much less testosterone than men, it still plays a key part in their libido. Pumpkin seeds also contain high levels of omega-3 which acts as a precursor of prostaglandins – hormone-like substances important for sexual health. Enjoy your delicious plate of egusi soup, knowing that it has many added benefits.

Garlic - Though the thought of garlic might not immediately conjure up romance, due to its smell,  it is said to be a powerful aphrodisiac as it contains allicin, a compound thought to improve blood circulation and improve sexual performance by increasing blood flow to the sexual organs.

Avocados -  help to increase both male and female libido as they are a great source of folic acid, which assists the body in metabolizing proteins and providing energy. Avocados are also rich in vitamin B6, which improves male hormone production, and potassium, which increases female libido by helping to regulate the woman’s thyroid gland.

Peanuts -  are great libido boosters, especially for men, as they are a rich natural source of L-arginine. This amino acid helps improve sexual function in men by relaxing blood vessels. Preliminary studies have also found that L-arginine may help with erectile dysfunction because of this effect on the blood vessels.

WHERE IS THE INTEGRITY IN JAMB...?

Whenever i hear of JAMB, my heart ponders to the time i wrote it...Ofcourse, this is the only road that seemed to lead to that successful moment in life, which is what our parents, my parents and families preached about..I wrote the University JAMB twice before it dawned on me to try the Polytechnic aspect which granted me the Diploma in Mass Communication i have today...A diploma that has put me in the light of a talented Media Person...That is why i endorse Polytechnic study 100%....

Now, Its actually not a bad system to have a unified exam for Nigerians, which will put them through to any School of choice but the entire route is such a provocative one...There are so many questions unanswered...Let me start with the sale of forms which is not affordable even for some people..The Cut-Off Mark is a complete trash and we have the era of writing another exam to  finally get admission..This is totally unfair...

At the end of the day, so many graduates are turned out with so many having no clue about the field they graduated but all thanks to money deals, they got through school at the expense of those who desire it badly and yet they say there is unemployment but that's another issue for another time...I am very concerned about the service and integrity of JAMB....with a lot of debate over scrapping it...I totally support it because it has not helped at all, rather, the reverse is the case...

Must we all go through that shit to become somebody, i campaign for many alternative avenues to better the life of Nigerians..We really need to empower our technical area; who says there are no prospects in Plumbing, Auto Mechanics, Iron Molders and so on..despite the classroom lectures received by University Students, a lot cannot still prove their worth of a first class...so, why are we still wasting our time.

Our future is in our hands, I simply advise the young ones to learn a trade or make good use of their hands, if you can sing or act, find someone to tutor you and empower yourself because we all must not go to school and be taught by people who have not updated their brains in the last decade...How many lectures are received online or how many projects and class assignments are submitted online, Does your lecturer tweet about the next lecture hints...?

Let us face the truth...I am personally tired about our educational system, so i support the death of JAMB, It has actually done more harm than good, i see no reason why i must score 300 to gain admission into a top university...and how many of those 300 scorers can effectively give a meaningful write up about their career prospects in an hour..?

Even if our leaders and society have failed us...You are still standing and your future is right before you, not in the hands of JAMB...so, wake up and think before you take that leap...

MIKEL OBI & SANDRA OKAGBUE WILL TIE THE KNOT SOON...

According to City People Magazine, Mikel Obi may be the next celebrity to tie the knot with his long time girlfriend, Sandra Okagbue. “The two love birds who have been dating for almost 3 years now have decided to seal the relationship. Their introduction comes up next Sunday March 31 at Sandra’s family home in Onitsha.

Sandra Okagbue and Mikel met about three years ago during one of Mikel’s visit to Nigeria and they’ve been together ever since. According to family sources, Mikel is so in love with Sandra that he has invested millions to settle her family, most especially the family’s residence located at Ajao Estate, which had Mikel’s financial blessing.

During preparations for the 2003 FIFA Under-17 World Championships, the Nigerian Football Association mistakenly submitted "Michael" as "Mikel" for the tournament in Finland. He decided to keep the new name, saying that it had a special ring to it. On 31 July 2006, he stated that he prefers to be called Mikel John Obi instead of John Obi Mikel, as he had most commonly been called.

Sandra Okagbue is an Ex-Beauty Queen and also a three time Queen of Delta Soap in Nigeria... Mikel surely has eyes for good fruits...This development will definitely not come as a surprise to most of their friends. This is because their romance has grown stronger by the day that Sandra has been a live-in-lover of the Chelsea midfielder in his UK home. Can this one be bigger than the Idibia's...?



MEET AYIRI EMAMI-THE FRONTLINE SPONSOR OF TUFACE AND ANNIE'S DUBAI WEDDING

The name Ayiri Emami to me does not ring a bell until i watched his wedding Carnival on Bisi Olatilo Show...There i had my mouth opened up until i realised i had to close it...Tuface was at the reception ground performing, with Dbanj, Yinka Ayefele, Psquare and many other notable Acts. This is a wedding where Ali Baba, Basket mouth and Many other comedians performed live, with so many bill boards all around the City for 'announcing his 'ARRIVAL'.

I want to believe there is something binding Tuface and Ayiri together..This Warri born oil magnate gave 2face and Annie N20 million Naira and ferried his yacht from the US to Dubai for their wedding....Nigerians are really big boys o..there are also reports all over the internet that Ayiri was sacked from the Delta State Governor's Cabinet...well, i do not think that rings any bell somehow about his wealth...

He is reputed to be a big time businessman in Delta state - he owns the 911 Beach & Resort Ugborodo, Chevron officials even visited the facility to show you the type of high profile it has in Delta state...Apart from that... he's been the Vice chairman of the Delta Waterways Security Committee (DWSC), meaning he would have received significant amounts of money in the form of 'security votes' both from the Government and from the oil companies operating in the area.


Perhaps we now know why Tuface had his wedding all the way in Dubai..So, you all should keep your hate to yourselves because money speaks louder for some decision making...just saying

PHOTOS OF FUNKE AKINDELE AFTER HER WEDDING...



Marriage is such a beautiful thing for some people like Funke Akindele, irrespective of what anyone might be thinking now...This pictures speak a lot about rest of mind and happiness, except of course, this is just a PR. Stunt to show that she is happily married...but i do not want to be in that school of thought...


KIM KARDASHIAN AND HER MATERNITY DRESS SENSE...



The media has incessantly been calling her fat and even went so far as to compare her to a killer whale. She's pregnant and obviously weight gain is going to happen! With that being said, I do not believe that the reality star is 140 pounds, as Extra reported. I think the main issue for Kim is her outfit choices. She says that she has only gained 20 pounds, but at 5-foot-2 that can look like a lot of weight. Unfortunately instead of attempting to dress more towards her even-curvier body, Kim has been attempting to squeeze into smaller and more absurd pieces.

Kardashian, 32, is clearly having problems accepting her new shape...She is trying so hard to protect those curves...all at the expense of the baby, thereby, loosing her sense of fashion.This is totally crazy for anyone to wear tight fitting clothes during when pregnant, how about a sense to have some space to breath..She truly has a problem and i hope the baby is not deformed at the end of the day and which of her fashion icons told her that leather and pregnancy goes well..?

I wonder what her mother, sisters and family members are doing about this..even Kanye West who is a fashion label owner should have some little advise..i guess they are all carried away with the whole pregnancy and publicity thrills that no one gives a hoot about how kim looks and the curves seems to be insured.



IS STELLA DAMASUS STILL ALIVE...?

For every reason that counts....I am looking for this sexy screen icon and why is everyone not concerned..alright, before you think am in love with her...Stella Damasus Aboderin is an A-list actress in Nigeria and she knows her job well...Is she still alive...?

She was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role at the African Movie Academy Awards in 2009 and she has acted with most of the hot guys of Nollywood; Ramsey Nouah, Richard Mofe Damijo, Pat Attah, Emeka Ike and so on..This is a woman who has gone through a lot in life; from marriage to career...

We all know that Stella Damasus and her new beau, Emeka Nzeribe whom she got married to in a low-profile a couple of months back have gone their separate ways over allegation of incompatibility, infidelity and disrespect to marital vows on the part of the actress cum singer, Stella Damasus.

Well, i guess she is certainly involved in a lot of projects, which are far less trouble than the drama that comes with being an actress in Naija, She has fully gone into Music and the Wig business for ladies...So, i guess she is very much alive doing her thing..being a star comes with its good and bad days...Stella has truly had her own share of it.

MEET CLARION AND CLARENCE...SWEET MOTHER ACTRESS & MUSIC VIDEO DIRECTOR SON

Actress, Clarion Chkwura (mother), and music video director, Clarence Peters (son) photo shoot for Motherhood InStyle Magazine cover. Clarence is the project result of the whirlwind romance between Clarion Chukwura and Afrojuju singer, Sir Shina Peters. Clarence Single-handedly raised by Clarion who gave birth to him at 17...This story is what turning to a movie i must say.

This is what she says in an interview cut online-I have no regret for coming across Shina Peters in life. In fact, if I have to play the role of Yemi in Money Power I’ll play it again. And if again I have to meet Shina Peters in the film, I’ll want to meet him again. In life, there is no gain without pain. The maturity process that I had to go through with my son, Clarence, after Money Power was a process of great pain. It was a process that brought out people in their real colours. It showed me how fickle people can be; how pretentious and mean people can be. It was a process of condemnation. Just because I had Clarence I was labeled a slot. I was written off.

The only thing they couldn’t do was write me off in my career because I was damn good. I was a good actress, so you couldn’t just help but work with me. People said all sorts of things about me; they did not give me a chance. It was a journey that taught me that life itself is a journey. But, as I said, there is no gain without pain. And it had to be like that because Clarence is a child of destiny. If it wasn’t like that then the purpose of God for his life wouldn’t have been actualized. Clarence’s life would have been cut short somewhere along the line during the days of struggle. So, asking me if I would do it all over again, my answer is that I would follow the will of God for my life.

My mother took over by the time Clarence was two months old. At this time, I was back fully on stage at the University of Ibadan Performing Company. And by the time he was four I was in Badagry for the rehearsals of The King Must Dance unclothed. I didn’t see Clarence again from when he was two to when he was nine months old. Clarence is not angry with his father. You see, Clarence is a highly mature person. His understanding is above the mundane. My life with Clarence does not revolve around telling him that your father did this or that.

We grew up together. My life actually started with him. By the time I was 22 and he was three and a half years old, Clarence was already seeing and relating with what our lives were like. You don’t need to start telling Clarence anything because it was a life he lived. He was a part of the experiences. Most of the artistes of my generation that Clarence calls uncles and aunties he didn’t just start calling them that and running to them; he has known them way back. 

Today, Clarence Peters is a top shot when it comes to a world class music video work and he knows his mastery well enough to earn your music a Grammy...Clarence attended Government College, Ikorodu and Camp David Academy Secondary School, Ogba. As a kid, Clarence worked as an actor with Owner of SoundCity, Tajudeen Adepetu for two years.

He starting directing at just 18 years of age when he directed 40 episodes of the TV series "Everyday People". He later moved to South Africa where he attended the City-Varsity Summon Television Academy in Cape Town and gained a degree in directing and cinematography. He returned to Nigeria to direct his first music video, Fuji by Darey. He founded CAPital Hill record label with his secondary school mate and friend, Tha Suspect who is also an artiste under the label.

KANYE WEST UPCOMING ALBUM MIGHT READ- ''I AM GOD''

There are various claims that Kanye West roots for the illuminati..He is certainly on his game when it comes to Music Mastery, Fashion and also a lovey-dovey life with Kim Kard...that which we have no clue where its heading to, despite their baby expectation..Now Kanye is in the news again but this time, very awkward and absurd.

Reports says Kanye West will title his upcoming album-I AM GOD..i actually laughed when i saw this online and made sure i wrote about this...Kanye would have lost his game if he actually comes out with such an album because everyone will now see him as something else...

So much is going on in his life and its funny he has also engaged Kim into such drama because Kim has also lost her fashion sense in maternity and she also tweets some uncultured statements about certain people..is this what pregnancy does to people?

Kanye West has been known for his controversial statements and pictures just like this one...Kanye West made headlines back in 2006 when he appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone wearing a crown of thorns, covered in blood dressed as Jesus Christ on the cross. That was controversial at the time...what a life!....Meanwhile, he intends naming his coming child-North, whatever that means but i am totally against some actions of this man and that includes misappropriate use of the Christian Faith...

If Kanye really titles his new album I Am God, people will surely react to it. Religious buffs, Fox News and Illuminati conspiracy theorists would have a ball...If you know what i mean....words cannot explain what will befall him, if he truly brings out that album.

INSPIRE YOUR LOVE LIFE WITH THE MARITAL VOWS OF THE IDIBIAS...

 
 
 
 It is no longer news that Tuface and Annie Macaulay went all the way to Dubai to become One family, A ceremony that some Nigerians frowned at because they wanted to be part of the great occasion but one of the significant part of the wedding ceremony was the exchange of vows..It is a moment that connects the couples together and those words must be true from the heart..Get inspired with the words of Tubaba and Annie...

This is what Annie said..
 “I stand before you today as open as I can ever be, humbled by the light and love in your eyes. 13 years ago, I met the most amazing man on earth! I flew on the wings of that love, uncaring, unheeding! Believing firmly that you are and will always be the wind beneath my wings
 
Life happened, oh yes Life happened but through it all my heart beat only for you! My heartbreak became my greatest joy! My strength! My life! Day after day I am more in love with you!
When people ask me what is love! I say Love is right here! This moment! This second! Today! Tomorrow! Love is you! Love is real! Love is my eternity with you Innocent Ujah Idibia.
 
I give you all of me today knowing that in you and you only has this imperfect girl found perfection!!! I do 13 years ago when I met you, I do seven years ago, I do five years ago when we created our daughter! I do through all the blogs and tabloid headlines And on this day, at this very second I stand in front of the world and I say I do take you as my wedded husband! I love you!
I love you so much, so so much”
Annie Idibia. 
 
And then, Tuface replies...
 
Many years ago I was farther than the eyes could see.
Now we are now in that future
When I look into your eyes, I still see
You came into my life and you lit it up
Like the sun, like the moon, like the stars
All the words in the dictionary
All the words in this world can not be enough
To say what my heart feels for you.
But all I can say is baby, my heart is like a stereo right now
And it will beat only for you till death do us part.
I love you baby.
Innocent Idibia
 
 

MEET PERO ADENIYI: MOTHER OF THREE FOR TUFACE

It is widely said that behind every successful man, there is a woman..now, ''Woe unto that Man", if the woman cannot add value to the life of her man..In the case of Tuface, there are three value added services to his life that has come to stay...These three kids, Rose, Justin and the one she had last year were conceived by Pero Adeniyi, a name that is so familiar with Tubaba.

Pero Adeniyi is based in the US and according to online reports was in the country for business but was not seen at 2face’s wedding to Annie Idibia even at the traditional wedding in Eket on March 8. None of 2face’s children from his other relationships were said to have attended their father’s wedding either.

Mrs Idibia should be ready to manage her home because all other children might decide they want to live with Daddy..but I know Tuface is quite graced to do the right things and he needs to be very careful because women are capable of anything once they have determined to fulfill the needs of their heart.




NELSON MANDELA WILL PASS ON AS THE GREATEST WORLD LEGEND

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has been admitted to the hospital for a recurring lung infection..Mandela, 94, who spent 18 days in the hospital in December for a lung infection and gallstones, as well as spent a night in a hospital and was released on March 10 following a medical test, was admitted just before midnight Wednesday.

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela is a South African anti-apartheid activist, revolutionary and politician who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999, the first to be elected in a fully representative, multiracial election.

On the day of his release from prison, Mandela made a speech to the nation. He declared his commitment to peace and reconciliation with the country's white minority, but made it clear that the ANC's armed struggle was not yet over: "our resort to the armed struggle in 1960 with the formation of the military wing of the ANC was a purely defensive action against the violence of apartheid. The factors which necessitated the armed struggle still exist today. We have no option but to continue. We express the hope that a climate conducive to a negotiated settlement would be created soon, so that there may no longer be the need for the armed struggle.

During the course of Mandela's presidency, a wide range of progressive social reforms were enacted, aimed at reducing long-entrenched social and economic inequalities in South Africa. As part of these reforms, free health care was introduced in 1994 for all children under the age of six together with pregnant and breastfeeding women making use of public sector health facilities.

Mandela became the oldest elected President of South Africa when he took office at the age of 75 in 1994. He decided not to stand for a second term and retired in 1999, to be succeeded by Thabo Mbeki. In June 2004, at age 85, Mandela announced that he would be retiring from public life. His health had been declining, and he wanted to enjoy more time with his family. Mandela said that he did not intend to hide away totally from the public, but wanted to be in a position "of calling you to ask whether I would be welcome, rather than being called upon to do things and participate in events. My appeal therefore is: Don't call me, I will call you...

Nelson Mandela has truly lived a life worthy of emulation...A life that gives every black man a confidence and driving spirit to be proud of at all times..The truth is that, the world is waiting for his death, as some see his continual visit to the hospital as a sign that death is near for this great man..but we are not his creator. If he dies today or tomorrow, he will be regarded as my world's greatest legend because he has done incredibly well for every African blood and his name will forever live in our heart.

South African President, Jacob Zuma, said in a statement, “We appeal to the people of South Africa and the world to pray for our beloved Madiba and his family and to keep them in their thoughts. We have full confidence in the medical team and know that they will do everything possible to ensure recovery.”

KEMI OLUNLOYO-AT 49, MY BOOBS ARE STILL VERY FIRM

This is what Kemi Olunloyo, Daughter of a Former Governor of Oyo State said concerning her boobs...
Ladies!!! It’s NOT a BRA. Its a bikini top with a WIRE, the latest with tight short mini skirts. I’ve always told u my breasts are healthy, self exam on the 11th of the month for chest cancer lumps, no implants. I have told ppl on social media that my breasts are firm, bosoms pointed and hard and my wish is to get my pumpkins to half of Cossy’s.
I will be 49 in August. Wonder why my sons tell their pals I am SEXY and make my pics their profile pic on FB.
Nigerian women, #KeepITReal and stop the shit pretending. Keep ur pumpkins healthy. #LifestyleTIP. No make up and stay natural in the pool. POST YOUR PICS if ur woman is SEXIER!

Oh in case you don’t know who she is, one can describe Kemi Olunloyo in many ways, an outspoken journalist, media expert, advocate, politician, deportee, the list goes on. She is also the daughter of former governor of Oyo State – she is one outspoken woman that keeps on talking even when it threatens her life, she’s come under attack so many times but that has not stopped her in any way from posting comments online…

I really do not know what to say because she is a daring woman who gives no shit about your opinion, she has been at the center of social media controversies..Gist has it that she is heading for the Senate House in 2015 and by the way, this what her blog says about her...

Kemi is 46, lives in Ibadan, Oyo Nigeria with her mother.. Bi-Polar, Unmarried,Arrested and deported from Canada,warrants for her arrest in Georgia USA. Has 3 bastard children, desperate to become a martyr, father was a governor for 3 MONTHS,overthrown because he’s a thief. She suffers from brain damage,obsessed with the internet and celebrities. Documented Delusional, Sociopath, Scizophrenic,Narcissist. All posts are factual. Make sure you bookmark us. (CTRL+D)

COSSY WANTS MIKEL OBI SO BADLY...?

There is always something about Cossy that trips me..she never hides her feelings for something, especially MEN...and i mean REAL MEN..She is so passionate about the Football game as she expresses interest in whatever dangles within their shorts on the field of play, and also a muscle freak...This is so amazing.

She is so crazy about Mikel Obi and what else might be good and heavenly for Mikel to rest his whole future on the ''Pillow of Life" which is very much available...I really do not know why a lot celebs in Naija are crazy about Footballers but i guess Cossy has given an answer on their behalf.

These are two single people and Marriage, dating, one night standing are the only things that can bring these two together..when next you see Cossy at a football match, i doubt if she is there for the round leather thrills...?

Cossy Orjiakor is a notable controversial Actress and Singer in Nigeria..She has been linked to so many top society men in the country and i must she gives no crap about what we think...So, do not be surprised when a thing or two happens between her and Mikel...after all, there is lots of cash to play around with

SPOTTED : OC LEE...THE SUNDAY RENDEZVOUS VJ.

The Nigerian Entertainment Industry is blessed so many talents who still practice their craft even when it is a case of past glory..Such is the case of OC Lee..just look to the extreme right of this picture and tell me if you recognize this brother...Do you remember the Sunday Rendezvous on NTA ?

I guess he was the party compere at Monalisa's daughter's birthday gig in Lagos...He sure knows his worth but so many talents have emanated since then but all credit must be given to him for what he did back then..

Oc Lee is a rare personality back then, his craft was genuine and classic because i followed most of his activities on TV. It is a good thing that he is very much alive, even at his age to display his talent before his people.


MONALISA CHINDA SEEMS TO HAVE HER GROOVE BACK...


Monalisa just like ''Stella" might have gotten her groove back, considering the recent happy moments in her life..Her daughter just clocked five and our Nollywood Queen celebrated that day like never before, as lots of kids and colleagues were present to show some love...Another Gentleman witnessed there is Lanre Nzeribe..He has been linked in the past with some celebrity women..

I guess we should be happy for Monalisa who has finally moved on from all the drama that occured in her life, especially her marriage to Dejo Richards...Mr Lanre Nzeribe has been in the fore front of Monalisa's project and the best thing that could happen to them is marriage...

Break and Make Ups aint new in Nigeria again but i hope this will put a lasting smile on the face of this lady..they were actually playing hide and seek with the whole love thing..it seems like a confirmed tale right now..She says she has found love and that its for real this time...and i thought, what really went wrong with her first marriage...food for thought Monalisa.

We can't help but wish you well before your love life becomes a blockbuster in the movie market and please, put your daughter's happiness into consideration..a birthday bash is not the only center of happiness in the universe, moreso, Lanre has his own children too...

THE WEDDING OF THE CENTURY-OSOUFIA AND JENIFA


It is only a creative Producer that will think of making a couple out of these two Nollywood Acts who carved a niche of being Clowns in some movies..Funke Akindele who is more like a cross over Actress and Nkem Owoh...I really can't wait to see the outcome of such a marriage.

This will draw viewership from both the Yoruba and Igbo Genre because these are top favorites of most Nigerians..Thumbs up to Nollywood, even though you guys are still crawling in some aspects of film making.

PROSPECTIVE EMPLOYEES BEWARE - "OGA AT THE TOP" GETS SUSPENDED...

All thanks i guess to Channels Television, Mr Obafaiye Shem, the Lagos State Commandant of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, has been suspended...This is following his awkward responses to very simple questions is being asked on Sunrise Daily. There are still many "Oga at the Top" fellows within the Civil service family who are even worse than this man..so many cannot operate a computer system, so many cannot write a proposal, so many do not have manners during a meeting...and many more.

It brings to the fact that our civil service is dying or perhaps dead..I am a civil servant within the Media and i know how worrisome it is when people do not understand certain sentences of the English Language or statements pertaining to their job description...and yet we say, employment is hard..who will employ if such traits are noticed during an interview...I will never waist my Pay on such an employee.

It is sad but we just need to sit tight and know how to run our system in Nigeria..so many things are going wrong...



NIGERIANS AND THEIR HUNGER GROOVE



These pictures here speak for themselves, along with my headline post..Nigerians are very desperate when it comes to opportunities like this..When there is an Oil leakage, there is trouble on who gets the most portion, I remember when a truck carrying cartons of beer fell at Surulere, Lagos...It was like festival to the guys around there..everyone had a full free day of beer at no extra cost or down payment...and there are several chances like that in Nigeria for guys to grab.

This fish here should have known better not to swim pass the Atlantic side from Lagos, that is if it was not dead before these guys found it...According to Wikipedia, this pygmy sperm whale (Kogia breviceps) is one of three species of toothed whale in the sperm whale family and they are not often sighted at sea; most of what is known about them comes from the examination of stranded specimens.

Well, i am not concerned about the study of this Whale but about my fellow Nigerians who make me laugh every time...Quite predictably, residents of Magbon-Alade area of Ibeju Lekki and fun seekers descended on the mammal with their machetes, knives, jigsaws and every other type of sharp object as everyone wanted to have a piece of its flesh...I do hope the sharing formula wasn't a problem at the end of the day.

I really do think the specie of that fish would have been useful for Academic study and in return, produces a better educational platform for Nigerians but this is not the first time we hear of such cases...any whale found nosing around such area will definitely end up as a gorgeous meal for several families...and that is simply Christmas in March, as every worry or problem will be pushed aside for that moment...the truth is that, you never can tell the last time they tasted fish, which proves the level of poverty in Nigeria.




AMVCA- COULD THIS BE THE REAL OSCARS OF AFRICA?




African Magic is an household brand channel in Africa and when this idea came up, it was completely welcomed by most followers of the Film industry in Africa..It is a viewers choice and that makes it unique in a way, except if other factors were outlined to get the winners..The most significant thing about this award was the glam and posh behind the stage and the guests present, from the actors, producers, directors and major corporate brands present...the type you can get at the Oscars.

An expert judging panel with a wealth of continental and international experience; and led by AMVCA Head Judge, Femi Odugbemi; were responsible for selecting the winners in non-viewer voted categories. The panel included Antonio Katakwe, Charles Asiba, Desiree Markgraaff, Joyce Fissoo, Kole Omotoso, Linus Abrahams, Simon Ratcliffe, Steph Ogundele and Zik Zulu Okafor.

The category wins for Best Supporting Cast in a Drama went to Uganda’s Matthew Nabwiso for A Good Catholic Girl and Kenya’s Maureen Koech for Lies That Bind. The prestigious award for Best Director went to another Nigerian, Akin Omotoso for Man on Ground. The announcement of the winners of the hotly-contested Best Movie Overall and Best Television categories produced the biggest ovation of the night, with Otelo Burning and The XYZ Show scooping top honours.

Big individual winners on the night included Nigeria’s Mercy Johnson as Best Actress in Comedy for Dumebi – The Dirty Girl, Ghanaian Jackie Appiah as Best Actress in Drama for Perfect Picture, Nigeria’s Hafiz Oyetoro as Best Actor in Comedy for House a Part and his compatriot and OC Ukeje as Best Actor in Drama for Two Brides and a Baby.

This might shake the standard created by African Movie Academy Awards(AMAA), which most people have come to recognize as the big screen awards...but with the emergence of the AMVCA, premiered in Lagos..the battle has just begun for other top notch awards...and for the actors, this is a time to up their game and prove they still have some seats in the Film Industry.

As for me, watching the event live on TV, makes me feel i was at the Oscars...The pre-event red carpet saw the stars dazzle, flaunting the finest continental fashion.  Capturing all the glitz was a team of on-air personalities, including Big Brother alumni Uti Nwachukwu and Nic Wang’ondu alongside Eku Edewor, Dolopo Oni, Sarah Hassan and Helen Paul.
