Where did she throw this, when she wore that Olympus baring blue dress to Aso Rock?
This looks really good! plus i'm feeling her natural hair.

A Lekki Wife's Plight; Dear KBReaders, please advice!



I have been married for 8 years and the union has been epileptic for the last 3 years but we have managed to make it this far. 
I met my husband shortly after relocating from the UK, I was in my early thirties and ready to settle down.  I fell in love with his swag and suave. He's one hunk of a man! Everything is BIG! Just the way I like it.
I had started my own business and was making good money so I wasn't too fussed about his money. I did ask what he did for a living and he told me he was into sales of exotic cars. Sounded good to me. Though at that point I couldn't have cared if he was hawking peanuts because he was so good looking and I was eager to settle down.

Fast forward to 5 years and two kids later, I have been the one bearing most of the financial responsibilities since we got married. We settled into a nice house on the mainland shortly after getting married where the rent went from 1 million to 1.5million naira a year, I singlehandedly paid this for 5 years in addition to the children's school fees and the maintenance of our home. In the entire period we lived there my husband only put up 1 million naira towards the rent. Getting money from him for the children's school fees and up keep of the house was always a heartbreaking task.

Flogging can reduce children intelligence....

Flogging

Some time in Febuary 2014, at Okun-Ajah, Lekki Lagos, 39-year-old Emmanuel Edet was told that his 12-year-old son, Samuel, whom he had asked to learn carpentry, had not been showing up at the workshop, as reported by his boss. Edet thought the best way to correct his son was to beat him and teach him a lesson.

But sadly, Edet’s approach cost him his son’s life. Edet got home around 10pm and ‘descended’ on his son, brought out his belt and flogged him black and blue. His mother wasn’t even lenient. It was gathered that the six-month pregnant woman had locked the gate to prevent the boy from running away while the husband ‘designed’ their son with the belt.

That blue dress- Etcetera pokes at Omoni Oboli's dress to her Aso rock movie premiere.

Im sure Etcetera will get enough backlash from Omoni's fans, for this write-up..bhet well my job is to report the news, and gists, nor be so?
enjoy mbok!




Remember Monica Lewinsky? If you do, then you should also remember the “Blue Dress” she wore to the white house that got President Clinton, the most powerful man in the world and the then president of the United States of America almost impeached. And 16 years on, just when everyone thought the seductive blue dress has been locked away in a highly secured vault somewhere at the pentagon, it reared its dangerous head at Nigeria’s presidential villa, worn by a nollywood actress for her movie premiere. Only this time, it was seductively patterned as a strip wear.

Is the second donning of the dreaded blue dress a decoy to seduce another president? This time around, the president of the most powerful black nation in the world. Well, your guess is as good as mine. I can still remember being glued to my laptop trying to make sense out of the picture of our president shaking hands with “The lady in blue”, with a larger part of her cleavage exposed for the world to see. It got me wondering how anyone dressed in such a manner could have been allowed anywhere near the presidential villa for any reason. How did she get past security? 

Yoruba Nollywood comic actor Baba Suwe finds love again..may remarry soon.

Baba  Suwe

Babatunde Omidina known as Baba Suwe is  a successful comedian better known for his exploits in Yoruba home videos. He is still arguably the most popular Yoruba comedian of his time. But Baba Suwe hasn’t been having it easy. After the much publicised crisis with National Drug Law Enforcement Agency,NDLEA, he lost his wife, Omoladun, who was almost always his soul-mate, even in films. Baba Suwe talked with Potpourri, of vanguardngr, opening up his heart on a number of issues, 
Excerpts:

When did you begin to act?

I started acting at 18 when I dropped out of secondary school, then I was in form four. I developed the passion when Baba Mero and his group came to Children boarding school in Osogbo to act. After watching them, I got drums and other musical instrument, picked some guys in my street like Mufitau Ilumoka, Sola Taiwo and a host of others and formed a theater group. And that was what metamorphosed into the brand ‘Baba Suwe’ today.

Are you saying you never went for any training?
No, I didn’t and I was not trained by anybody. I was born with the talent of putting smiles on faces, so I really did not need any training.

How i contracted and survived Ebola-Late Justina's fiance Denise Akagha .


Dennis Akagha, the fiance of Justina Ejelonu, the First Consultant Hospital nurse who died after being infected with the deadly Ebola virus by Liberian Patrick Sawyer, in this exclusive interview with Vanguard spoke about how his late fiancee contracted the deadly disease, how she lost their unborn child while battling with Ebola, and also revealed that Justina had just landed the job at the hospital and met Sawyer on her first day there. He also spoke on how he got infected with the virus and how he finally got discharged. 
On his relationship with the late Justina, 
"The  truth is that Justina and I were not legally married, we were planning for our traditional marriage in October and she just got this job. She was a qualified graduate nurse and got the job at the First Consultant Hospital in Lagos. She resumed duty at the hospital on the 21st of July, while Patrick Sawyer was admitted at the hospital on the 20th. He was her first patient. She was one of the nurses that nursed him. She was pregnant and so her immune system was weak, which made it easy for her to contract the disease.

Ebola: School owners, FG on collision course;
Private school owners in Lagos State and the Federal Government may clash over the latter’s order directing all primary and secondary schools in the country to resume on October 13, 2014, instead of the anticipated September 15.

The school owners, under the umbrella of the National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools, believe that the directive is unnecessary and should not be considered as part of the measures to prevent the spread of Ebola virus in the country.

They expressed their feeling at a sensitisation programme on Ebola held on Thursday at Victory Grammar School, Ikeja, Lagos.

The Minister of Education, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau, had announced the resumption date after a meeting with the 36 state commissioners of education on Tuesday in Abuja.

New female suicide bombers may be dressed as Nuns-DSS warns..


Following the discovery that about 13 Nuns ( Reverend sisters)'s garments were stolen when a tailoring shop was burgled at sabon-gari in Kano, the DSS has issued warning that these regalias may be used as a guise by suicide bombers.

Below is the statement released by spokesperson,Mary Ogar,;

On 20 August 2014, about 4:00 a.m., some yet to be identified persons broke into a tailoring shop located at No. 55 Odutola Street, Sabon Gari, Kano, and stole about thirteen (13) pieces of Reverend Sisters’ regalia of the Catholic Church. With the recent trend in female suicide bombings in the country, the removal of these regalia may be the handiwork of terrorists’ elements that may want to perpetrate acts of terror using such garments.

So we have seen many videos from this viral ALS ice bucket challenge.. from the very rich, to the not so rich Americans have been doing it. 
Well, some of our Naija celebs dont want to be left out of the fun(as many has taken this challenge) the likes of Genny, DonJazzy, and some others have done it...well, my question is.... must we always do whatever we feel is trending? those who nominated themselves and did this challenge, would they be donating any funds to the ALS cause?
A number of African entertainers have come out to outrightly condemn the acts, saying why should these entertainers not invent a challenge that can generate money towards the eradication of Ebola, and some other deadly diseases from Africa?

Stop begging for votes like politicians, Etcetera tells Nigerian entertainers..



This is another article from controversial writer, Etcetera...this time his hammer falls on Nigerian entertainers who beg fans for votes, when nominated for awards..

I’ll love to appeal to Nigerian entertainers to stop the habit of going about cap in hand begging for votes each time they are nominated for awards. If your materials are good enough and the award process is transparent, I see no reason why you should go about embarrassingly soliciting for votes like a politician. 
No award should be given based on public opinion. There should be a “competent” panel of judges selected to review the nominated materials and advise the organisers who the winners should be.
