Ladies, if you’re on the singles scene long enough, you’ll undoubtedly attract the attention of a married man or two. You’ll know him from the nice suit (that his wife bought him for Christmas), the tan lines from the wedding ring that now resides in his breast pocket, and the sob story about the overbearing, under-caring burden he voluntarily shackled himself to umpteen years ago.
And oh, how caring he is—the most understanding man and the best listener you’ve ever met. He sends you flowers, calls to check in with you throughout the day, just because. He places you on a pedestal so high you can touch
Big things happen in small packages.. I'm referring to the talented young artiste, Whizkid. He looks small but he's uber-talented. I remember the first time I saw him on stage performing, it was Dynamix Awards 2010 (I was nominee for 2 awards categories.. wide grin).. I digress, I should tho, this is my blog afterall.. winks. Ok, back to Whizkid, I loved him right from that day, though I knew about him before the awards but seeing this cute bro doing his thang on stage was a sight to behold. I was in the company of friends, ex-Sisi Oge of Lagos, Damilola Otubanjo and another friend, Maureen. Maureen wouldn't stop leaping out of her seat to get a better glympse of Whizkid on stage, it was madt love she was showing and unknowingly to her, I caught the same *bug from her since then. To me, Whizkid can't do anything wrong -- he should watch some of his lyrics

He further said, "Although I like Kanye. He's a Chicago guy. Smart. He's very talented but he is a jackass.

Neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman turned himself in Wednesday to face a charge of second-degree murder after a Florida special prosecutor announced she had concluded that his claims of self defense were not supported in the shooting death of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Special prosecutor Angela Corey's announcement marked a turning point in the high-profile case, as weeks of outrage and speculation about Zimmerman's motives culminated in his arrest -- something that Martin's family and their supporters have argued for since the Feb. 26 shooting in a gated community in Sanford, Fla.
But Zimmerman's new lawyer, Mark O'Mara, said his client will plead not
Who stole the peace of Nigeria? Who let evil men take the rein? Who is responsible for our citizens? Who is in charge of our national security? Are we safe in our country?
Like fuel subsidy, is there a cabal that feeds fat on the darkness in Nigeria? Are they also regular donors to the ruling party? Do they also build CSR churches? Can a bribee take a bribe and not do the bidding of the briber? If the payer calls the tune of the piper, when will the piper get to play the tune the people expect to hear? When will the Nigerian government be a government for the people and not for cabals?
Will members of the petrol subsidy cabal ever go to jail? If we all agree they contributed to the President’s campaign chest, will immunity be broken to ensure the President sticks with his friends in jail?
If that is not possible, when will Nigeria create disincentives for corruption? Will people ever stop committing crimes if they know there are no punishments for crimes committed? When will government in Nigeria be of laws and not of men? When will the people ever matter in the affairs of government?

Ok this is one interesting topic that will attract so many interests; I see a lot of controversy coming to play here, some people agreeing, while others will disagree.

Having been in South Africa for a long while and growing up in Nigeria, I have a broad knowledge of women from both countries, as I have interacted extensively with both women. Continue here --->

Though fun, but there are no positive reasons for dating a married man. Even the good reasons don’t stand the test of time and turn out to be bad ideas in good ideas’ clothing. If you find yourself on the brink of temptation, look at these 10 truths before you leap:

Well, I did but not that much anymore, has to do with the way she left Mark Anthony to start a new fling without any considerations to her twins or Mark either, and immediately after the seperation annuncement was made too. I get it, you're wondering
Rihanna’s brother RORREY spoke with HEAT Magazine. And in it, he says that Drake and Rihanna were CLOSE TO BEING MARRIED!!! Peep the exerpts:
‘Rihanna and Chris were great together, they were like soul mates, but it’s a very sensitive subject – I just blank it out and I think she blanks it out, too.’
‘When she looks unhappy, it’s not because of her missing Chris, it’s because of how hectic her lifestyle is – she sometimes does 13-hour days.’
‘I’m really proud of her. I just want her to be happy. She has talked to me about getting married and having children. She plans on settling down, but she wants to focus on her career.’
‘There are a million guys across the world waiting to take her out, but she says they are more intimidated by her than anything else.’
‘Rihanna doesn’t have a boyfriend right now. Drake and Rihanna used to be together – and he’s a pretty cool dude.
‘I was in a club in LA, and he saw me and came over. I was nearly his brother-in-law, but I didn’t know him so well, so I was touched by that.’
‘I’ve always been protective of her. Certain guys will be looking at her or coming on to her, and I tell them to move away and be careful not to bother her.’
‘We don’t have a drinking age in Barbados, so we started partying at 14 years old.’

AMINA is a deeply emotional story of loss, love and redemption about a fragile young woman, (Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde) whose life turns into disarray after an unplanned pregnancy leaves her totally devastated and bewildered.
Unsure and vulnerable, she fights single-handedly to raise an unwanted child, but stumbles and falls at every turn into deeper emotional turmoil that eventually leads her lonely, lost and 'without her mind' in the care of a secure pyschiactric institution..
US born Nigerian singer, songwriter, actor and model Rotimi has been named the new face of US rapper T.I’s clothing line AKOO. Rotimi is a cast in the Golden Globe winning TV series "Boss".
In a recent interview with Dr. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala for the WashingtonPost, here's a quote y'all should read .. Peep the excerpt below...
As an example of her forceful diplomacy, Okonjo-Iweala related how she dealt with the most unpopular point in her career, when as Nigerian finance minister she removed a fuel subsidy that led to Occupy Nigeria protests.
“After the protests... we spent four hours together talking, Occupy Nigeria and I,” she said, beginning to laugh. “And by the time we were leaving they were asking if we could take pictures together.”
Can you believe this, is she for real?! I don't suppose she'll give more details, something tells me we've not heard the last of this.. Amma stick to twitter and facebook in the coming hours, I shall like to know the rage that 'll follow this statement by the honorable madam.. *winks. BTW, *hogwash things*, my opinion.
Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg shared the following on his timeline on facebook explainign why his company bought the mobile photo-sharing site, Instragram for a coll $1billion. Istragram has over 30 million registered users. The message from Mark here --->
This is an important milestone for Facebook because it’s the first time we’ve ever acquired a product and company with so many users. We don’t plan on doing many more of these, if any at all. But providing the best photo sharing experience is one reason why so many people love Facebook and we knew it would be worth bringing these two companies together.

SOURCE - Hundreds of worshippers in Sacramento, California., were able to celebrate Easter together this Sunday thanks to a local Muslim organization that let the Christians hold services in their mosque. For the past 12 years, members of the Spiritual Life Center of Sacramento had rented out space at the Pioneer Christian Church, according to the paper. But when their lease expired on March 31, the 500-member church was left with little time to find somewhere else to hold their Easter Sunday service, which is traditionally the best-attended of the year.
Reverend Michael Moran told reporters he had tried desperately to find a temporary meeting space for the Easter celebration after the lease for the rented place he shared with 500 other church
Months after the murder of Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew in 2008, it was Whitney Houston who presented her with a Grammy. Now, the Oscar winner is no doubt bracing herself to relive that tragedy once more, as jury selection begins today for the trial of William Balfour, the estranged husband of Hudson’s sister, Julia.
William Balfour is accused of killing Hudson’s mother, Darnell Donerson, 29-year-old brother Jason Hudson and 7-year-old nephew Julian King (Julia’s son) in a jealous rage. JHud made a brave return to the public eye at the Super Bowl and the Grammys

2face Idibia's mother of two of his children, Pero Adeniyi has delivered her 3rd child for the music star on the heels (if you may) of his rumoured July wedding to longtime girlfriend Annie Macaulay. Pero had her second son in the early hours of Sunday, April 8, 2012 in Washington DC.
According to TheNetNG, 2face who recently got engaged to Annie Macaulay has just returned from the US where he spent the past few weeks with his fiancé, working on his album. Congratulatory messages have since poured in;
‘What is your story? I want to know the truth behind the lies!’ kelechi said with a stern no- nonsense look. Those eyes that used to show so much love now seemed to speak of so much hatred and disgust. Sweating profusely while weeping all over, I started stammering wondering where exactly to start from; the beginning was always best, i thought.
I met Kelechi George on Facebook.
It began one Saturday morning with an inbox message which read...
Christians were nailed to crosses in the Philippines today in a grim Good Friday reenactment of Jesus's suffering. Thousands of people watched as 17 devoted Catholics were 'crucified' in the gruesome annual ritual.
Church leaders have condemned the practice which they believe are a distortion of the true Easter message. Nine men were crucified in Pampanga province's San Pedro Cutud village today, while at least eight others were crucified in neighbouring villages.
The annual event - which dates back to the 1950s - drew an estimated crowd of 10,000 worshippers. Continue to see more photos
Oprah was having lunch with bffs Gayle King and Tyler Perry when Oprah admired Tyler's new Bentley. The next day Tyler had a Bentley just like it sent over to Oprah and when Gayle called to thank him, he sent her one too.Gayle tells Vanity Fair magazine,
"(Oprah admired the Bentley) so he sent her the same exact car. I called Tyler and told him how amazing that was because nobody ever does anything like that for her, on such a grand scale. And so, the next day when I got home, there was a Bentley in my driveway from Tyler!"
Beyond the fugacious razzmatazz of the moment, I seriously call attention to the rutilanting and coruscating modus vivendi of Master Jesus the Christ and I dare pontificate that save and until we viscerally emblematize the virtues of self-immolation, quintessential abnegation, eulogizeable simplicity, Christ-like humility and immerse ourselves in a platonic emotionalism of agape love and communalistic service, we would have woefully failed in learning and imbibing the true meaning of EASTER.
We must elevate this moment from a proscenium of joie de vivre into one of meditative transcendentalism”.
