Twitter Extract: Davido Denies Fighting with Taxi Driver and Assault on Girlfriend

Nigeria's Hope Sinks as Blessing Okagbare Finishes 8th in Tracks at the Olympics

Blessing Okagbare represented Nigeria at this year Olympics in tracks and field, but the sprinter placed 8th position and dashed Nigeria's hope for a gold medal. We love Blessing Okagbare, she's done us proud in the past and even now her 8th position is a record breaker in Africa female 100m as she finished in a time of 11.01, one of the fastest time in from athletes in this part. Don't you go A*yimu'ing :D

Some humour - Ogoni man go jump enter water like fish, see Olympics go swim.. ZERO medal.
Hausa man go enter boat dey shout argungu fishing festival, see rowing at the Olympics, ZERO medal.

Igbo man will run from Sokoto to Aba at the slightest provocation by Boko, see long distance running at the Olympic, ZERO medal.
Agbero for park no mind pursue bus for road but see 100meters race at Olympics,, ZERO medal.

Yoruba man will remove clothe, wrist watch and pant to fight at Ojuelegba but see boxing at the Olympics, Zero medal. Who started that nonsense called NAIJA GOT TALENT sef? *** LOL, boys are angry is all I can say.. Winks

Overheard: Davido Assaults Cab Driver And Slaps Girlfriend.. Details Here

PUNCH - This is not looking good for Davido, he was accused of being very disrespectful towards women last year, this year he is already getting... his share of bad press, Punch reports that:
A taxi driver, Femi Ajibola, will never forget July 1, 2012 in a hurry. At about 5.30 pm on that day, he received a phone call from a young woman in the Lekki area of Lagos and had quickly answered the subsequent invitation to pick her up.

“The lady introduced her as Susie. She called me to come and pick her and her friend. They told me to come pick them up at Mobolaji Estate near Lekki Second Roundabout. Later, I took them to a hotel at Lekki Phase I to meet one of their friends. Click to continue reading..
“From there we left for Beni Apartment in Victoria Island. They said that I should wait for them and promised to be back soon. Not long afterwards, one of the girls began to scream as she was coming towards my car. Behind her, I saw David Adeleke (Davido) and four of his bouncers.

“The girl was running towards me. I think the men had assaulted her. She said I should open the door for her so that she would enter. I opened the door for her; as she was about to enter the car, Davido caught up with her and slapped her face,” Ajibola said.

In a bid to save the girl from further assault, Ajibola switched on the engine of his cab and was about to drive off when the youthful singer suddenly CONTINUE AFTER THE JUMP

Serena Williams Done Did It!!! Clinches Olympic Gold Medal in Tennis

Serena Williams clinched her first Olympic singles gold medal with a 6-0, 6-1 demolition of Maria Sharapova in the most one-sided women's final in the history of the Games on Saturday. Williams' victory surpassed Suzanne Lenglen's 6-3, 6-0 win over Dorothy Holman in the 1920 final in Antwerp.

The American's win, which came just a month after she had captured a fifth Wimbledon crown, also allowed her to become just the second woman to win a Golden Slam of all four majors and an Olympic singles title.

The 30-year-old emulates German legend Steffi Graf, who achieved the same feat in 1988 when she won the five titles in the same year.

Photo: Funke Akindele Drops "Hafengas"; Think American "Avengers"

Funke Akindele is set to release another blockbuster, so the suppossed "Hafengas" to be filmed under her production will have us believe. Well, she has since denied she's working on anything like it, she stated via twitter that it was some creative person (she said she figured this out hersefl) who decided to photoshop her picture and have it captioned with the title "Hafengas" spelled 'Ha-Fen-Jahs' in Funke Akindele's *Jenifa's voice... Lol. Must be some cool guy tho (Hehe!), the artwork gets a pass mark from me :D
You'll recall "Avengers" as an American superheroes movie, it grossed over a $1billion at the box office in combined local US and international sales. It would be quite a thing to have Nigerians produce a movie on that level too.. I know this is some wishful thinking but whoever said Impossible is Dead!

Hot Photos: Rukky Sanda.. Cool or Not?

Gabby is projected to bag a minimum of $10million endorsement deals in the next 5yrs. This is a projection by advertising giants.. Wooohooo!!!

Here's how (CBS News) is reporting it.. On Friday morning, U.S. gymnast Gabby Douglas woke up with her second Olympic gold medal. But now the 16-year-old Douglas stands to really strike it rich with product endorsements. Kellogg's was quick to pounce, putting the golden girl on Corn Flakes boxes just hours after the gymnast claimed the all-around title Thursday.

All Hail the New Queen of Gymnastics - Gabby Douglas, USA

Congrats GABBY!!! American Gabrielle Douglas became the new queen of women's gymnastics Thursday night, winning the Olympic women's all-around title with four strong and solid routines to join a short list of women and an even shorter list of Americans to have captured the sport's most coveted prize. Douglas won gold over Russians Viktoria Komova and Aliya Mustafina.

Olympic Basketball: Nigeria Lost Woefully to USA 156-73. Covers Face

The Guardian - That was the best I think I've ever seen a basketball team play. I feel bad for Nigeria having to be on the other end of that, but that was just an impossible task.

An email here from Olutosin Mustapha provides some perspective: "This is the first time Nigerian team is qualifying for basketball in the olympic so it is not too bad for them. Up Nigeria Up USA. Iam a Nigerian-America".

Very true, there's really no shame in being beat by the best, even at this historical level. This was an example of some of the best players in basketball playing at a superhuman level. It was almost breathtaking to watch and certainly a night that will stay in the record books for a long while.

Words on the Street: Davido's 'O.B.O' Concert was a Flop - Reviews by Azuka Ogujiuba

Heightened expectations and anti-climax at Davido’s album launch

If the intensity of my expectation before Davido’s launch of his album could be glimpsed this was perhaps the most instructive. I had just arrived at the Lagos airport and was in dire need of rest. But rather than going home to refresh, l rushed off to the Eko Hotels and Suites, venue of the album launch and concert, of the musician also called “Omo Baba Olowo” (Yoruba term for son of a rich man).
The pre-event buzz led me and my friends to tag it “The Show of a Lifetime.” I was worried because l didn’t want to stand through the concert which would be the case if I got to there late. I worried too that I might not secure a vantage position to see this upcoming act. I wanted to get a bird’s eye view of his stagecraft. But the excitement was soured by a disappointing performance. The show reminded me of the “High School Musicals”. Davido’s performance brought back memories of my secondary school prize giving day where the excitement to impress is not always proportional to the skill. More after the jump

Erastus Akingbola Ordered By UK Court to Return N165 Billion Stolen From Depositors’ Fund

A London court has found former Chief Executive Officer of the defunct Intercontinental Bank PLC, now Access Bank, Erastus Akingbola, GUILTY of stealing and diverting billions of depositors’ funds to buy properties in the United Kingdom and for buying shares for himself in order to manipulate its share price in the stock market.

The court ruled that Akingbola was liable for directing the bank to buy its own shares at a loss of about 145 billion naira ($902 million), siphoning money to companies controlled by him or his family and using Intercontinental funds to buy real estate in the U.K., Judge Michael Burton said in a ruling in London today.

“Quite apart from being contrary to Nigerian law,” Akingbola’s strategy for the bank to buy its own shares “was simply wrong-headed, and was plainly a substantial contributing factor to the collapse of the bank,” Burton said.

Sahara Reporters and Oyo State Governent FACEOFF

Late yesterday, we received a rejoinder [see below], written by Festus Adedayo, Special Adviser to the Governor of Oyo State on Media.

Characteristically, the rejoinder was a poor job at blackmail and failed to address the central issue around of our report, which was the bloated size of Mr. Ajimobi’s delegation to the London Olympics.
In the entire response written and published on Mr. Adedayo’s Facebook page, he failed to prove that we lied in stating that the governor went to the Olympics jamboree with 15 aides. Rather, Mr.

Adedayo said, “A team that follows the governor comprises of officials who were carefully selected to represent all the sectors and ministries relevant to the numerous engagements”

According to the Oyo governor’s spokesperson, these individuals were selected and shipped to London by the governor to attend three separate exhibitions for “foreign investors”. He admits implicitly that we correctly compiled the list of aides on the trip. In his rejoinder, Mr. Adedayo claimed that we said the aides were all commissioners, this is

Nigerian Diasporans are the Most Educated Immigrants in the United States

FOR Woodlands resident David Olowokere, one of Nigeria’s sons, having a master’s degree in engineering just wasn’t enough for his people back home. So he got a doctorate.

His wife, Shalewa, a civil engineer, didn’t stop at a bachelor’s, either. She went for her master’s.
The same obsession with education runs in the Udeh household in Sugar Land. Foluke Udeh and her husband, Nduka, both have master’s degrees. Anything less, she reckons, would have amounted to failure.

10 Minutes With ChuddyK, 'Gaga Crazy' Crooner

He gave us a feel of what R&B should sound like when he dropped his very first single titled 'SLOW SLOW', it's been great music to all ears since then on. Chuddy K is one of the few artistes with great talent out there, this is why I decided to catch up with him for a 10minutes chat. Boy, I'm I glad that I did.

ChuddyK has done some heavy rotation collaborations with several artistes, one  was the chat-bursting track 'SHAMPOO' that had sexy songstress Mocheddah on it. He went a little low after a couple of marketing deals went bad and he decided to re-brand himself so he could give his fans a feel of some of those "GAGA CRAZY" things.

The soul brotha was about jetting out for his Malaysia trip when I eventually caught up with him at the departure wing of the Murtala Mohammed Airport, he was very kind enough to spare those minutes I have since cherished.

Chukwudi Kent Agali better known to the public as "Chuddy K" is a down to earth and very humble fella, you just need to meet with him and you would have a fulfilled day. Enjoy my very short conversation with him: After the Jump

Incredible: Oral Sex Crashes 11-Year Old Marriage

A 66 -year old retiree, Michael Adesanya Agboola, has said that he fell apart with his ex-wife, Funke Alasiri because he stopped ***** her private part. But, his estranged wife has denied the allegation.
Agboola, whose 11-year old marriage to Funke was dissolved by the Agege Grade ‘A’ Customary

 Court, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria, added that when he demanded an explanation for her unusual request, she told him it was the vogue among couples and that he must do it to satisfy her.
