MY FIANCEE WIPED AWAY MY SHAME-TIWA SAVAGE


In an interview with Showtime weekly,Mavin Records First lady, Tiwa Savage, opened up about how she started her career in Nigeria and also her relationship with Tunji Balogun.
Here is an Excerpt from the interview:

Looking back to when you stormed the nation’s music industry a few years ago, how do you feel today?
Like you said, a lot of people tried to discourage me from coming home.  They told me that people who came before me were not really welcomed home, and that it is even worse for a female singer. They even said there was no way I could be on the same stage with the likes of Tuface, Wizkid and many others. I got discouraged somehow. As a matter of fact, after I dropped Kele-Kele, I moved back to Los Angeles. Then, I dropped Love Me Love Me and it grew even bigger. So, I decided to move back to Nigeria because people around me encouraged me that I could make it if I’m consistent in what I’m doing. That was how I was  encouraged to do more. I thank God for where I am today.

VIDEO: Know Anyone Who Thinks Racial Profiling Is Exaggerated? Watch This, And Tell Me When Your Jaw Drops.

A social experiment is conducted in a park. Three people try to steal a bike out in the open. First, a white teenager. Then, a black one. Finally, a young blond tries her luck. Does anyone try to stop them? This ABC experiment on race dynamics is easily the best thing I've seen on television in years. The result blows my mind, and at 1:50, I literally yelled, "You've got to be kidding me!" at my screen. Let me know if you do, too. I know everyone gets uncomfortable talking about race, but it would be great if people were more aware so they could challenge their own pre-conceived notions. You sharing and tweeting this could go a long way towards doing that. Totally your call though.

Documents: U.S. mining data from 9 leading Internet firms; companies deny knowledge

The National Security Agency and the FBI are tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio and video chats, photographs, e-mails, documents, and connection logs that enable analysts to track foreign targets, according to a top-secret document obtained by The Washington Post.
The program, code-named PRISM, has not been made public until now. It may be the first of its kind. The NSA prides itself on stealing secrets and breaking codes, and it is accustomed to corporate partnerships that help it divert data traffic or sidestep barriers. But there has never been a Google or Facebook before, and it is unlikely that there are richer troves of valuable intelligence than the ones in Silicon Valley.

What Are Some Not So Obvious Topics Every Couple Should Discuss Before Marriage?


Basic stuff but so many couples mess it up:
The money belongs to both of you. Don't ever imply that you make the money, you'll spend it however you please. If your spouse likes shopping, set a limit. A firm budget will avoid fights. My husband and I have a $200 mad money limit. Either of us can blow $200 unchallenged on something we want every few months. It can be a new outfit or a new toilet but whatever it is, no one says a word. Anything beyond that (aside from bills, insurance, etc) requires a discussion. We don't use the mad money card often but it has kept us from a lot of arguments. Your limit may be higher or lower depending on your bills, debt, etc. Find something you are both comfortable with.
Sex. Don't think for a minute that you will have matching libidos. You won't. Even if you do now, you might not in the future. Talk about acceptable outlets for your frustration. Discuss an acceptable middle ground and work to make sure your spouse is satisfied.

Why Globacom dropped Kunle Afolayan as Ambassador

Celebrity News, Entertainment News, Gossip Trends,
These communication Network companies are fast becoming too hostile and competitive! I wonder how far they can take protecting their territories to but then all we can do now is watch the drama unfold. Read this:
The prolific movie director and actor was dropped as a Glo ambassador a few months ago because of Saka. Yes, Saka the actor and new MTN ambassador. Real name Afiz Ayetoro.
According to what I gathered, Kunle Afolayan was booted out when Globacom found out that one of the main characters in his Phone Swap movie (which was sponsored by Globacom) was Saka, an Etisalat face for many of their brands, at the time. (Before he ported to MTN )
Prior to him being dropped as an ambassador, Kunle had a smooth relationship with the company and did not go against any terms in his contract and was really shocked at his termination. Thing is, Kunle had been working on his movie long before he was approached to be a Glo ambassador.

"If it's itchy then scratch it" Probably the best quote i can give to these couple who is caught by the google street view camera on dukes Highway in Australia.

But the itch they have is a different kind of "itch".
The photo went viral and made the couple instant celebrities. The two are still nameless as of press time.

It seems that google's street view camera has a passion for this kind of things.

Just last March, a woman wearing leopard-print stockings was captured conducting a intimacy act on a guy in a alleyway in Manchester.

Word of Advice:
Remember to look up in the sky whenever you want to "do" it on the street.

London Protest Of Shame Against President Jonathan.


As at this Morning the Organiser of yesterday's Anti-Jonathan protest are still under hiding as they covered their faces throughout the few minutes they were standing around the City of Westminster, in the United kingdom.

About 6 Nigerians were involved in the protest, with Asians and North Africans hired to carry placards, that described President Jonathan as a Dictator.
If President Goodluck Jonathan's decision to take the fight to Boko Haram is one of the reasons he is branded a Dictator, we sincerely want more of such dictators.

Daughter Accuses Dad, 57, Of Having Sex With Her


Emotion ran high, Monday, at the Bar Beach Police Division, following revelation by a Primary 5 pupil of how  her 57-year-old  father had been having carnal knowledge of her  in the last three months.
The primary school pupil during interrogation said her mother brought her to her father after years of separation, adding that since the sacrilegious act began, her father had been giving her N200  as pocket money to school.
Unsure of who to confide in, she said she told her mother during one of her visits only for the father to  dismiss the claim, stating that he could not bring himself that low as to having carnal knowledge of his biological daughter.
But the bubble burst after she summoned courage to tell her head teacher, who invited the police.

VIDEO: Meet A Calabar Community In Nigeria That Still Practices Trade By Barter

Some weeks ago, Channels Television reported on the point of no return in Esuk Mba Community, Akpabuyo Local Government Area of Cross River State and promised to bring do another report on a practise still in Esuk Mba traceable to the 18th century still which is still in existence. Part two of the Esuk Mba story, takes us to the trade by Barter Market, where this form of exchange has refused to evolve irrespective of the importance attached to the Nigerian currency note in our contemporary times. The Esuk Mba trade by barter market was a focal point in Nigeria's dark era of slave trade which made delivery of about 30 percent of the total slaves shipped out of the country at the 'point of no return' through a bush track behind the market. Many decades after the abolition of slavery, the Esuk Mba Market is still standing and plays host to traders from the neighbouring states and communities who bring in, the proceeds from their farms in exchange of what they do not have, but need at the moment. Other products exchanged at the market are sea foods like the periwinkle popularly known as 'Enfee- in efik language, crayfish, fish, fruits and other produce. The market is a weekly one, it holds every Saturday from 7am and terminates at 10am for the barter section and on a day like this, you can be sure of getting value for what you are exchanging for. Ambrose Akpanika, an elder statesman and a High Chief of the Calabar Kingdom, traced the root of this practise and its economy stability factor in the Nation's currency.

MERMAID? Creature turns to face tourist

IS this dramatic video proof that mermaids really DO exist?

The clip shows two tourists filming what they think is a seal on rocks.
But as they zoom in they quickly realise it might not be what it seems, with one saying: "That’s a weird looking seal man, are you filming this? I don't think it’s a seal."
The creature then appears to turn and look at the men before flipping into the water.
The clip, filmed in Kiryat Yam, Israel, has become an internet sensation with many people claiming it is a mermaid - a creature with the upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish.
So ... mermaid, seal or camera trick? Decide for yourself.

Oral sex gave me cancer - Michael Douglas in shock revelation

ACTOR Michael Douglas has revealed his life-threatening cancer was caused by oral sex.

In a candid confession, the Basic Instinct star said he was told his throat cancer was triggered after he contracted the human papillomavirus (HPV) — the most common form of sexually transmitted disease.
It had been widely thought the 68-year-old Hollywood star’s years of drinking and smoking were to blame for the stage four cancer, which was first diagnosed in 2010.
But in a new interview Douglas — married since 2000 to British actress Catherine Zeta Jones, 43 — said oral sex had caused the disease.
Asked if he now regretted his years of smoking and drinking, he replied: “No. Because without wanting to get too specific, this particular cancer is caused by HPV, which actually comes about from cunnilingus.”
He went on to say that oral sex was also the best cure — a claim doctors deny.

In an unprecedented move, the United States on Monday posted up to $23 million in rewards to help track down five leaders of militant groups accused of spreading terror in West Africa.
The highest reward of $7 million is offered for the Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau, who last week called on Islamists in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq to join the bloody fight to create an Islamic state in Nigeria.
The US State Department’s Rewards for Justice program also targeted Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), offering its first ever bounties for wanted militants in west Africa.
Up to $5 million was posted for Al-Qaeda veteran Mokhtar Belmokhtar, the one-eyed Islamist behind the devastating attack on an Algerian gas plant in January in which 37 foreigners, including three Americans, were killed.
A further $5 million was offered for top AQIM leader Yahya Abou Al-Hammam, reportedly involved in the 2010 murder of an elderly French hostage in Niger.

Pregnancy Test Reveals Testicular Cancer

You may have seen the headline, or maybe you’re one of the 1.7 million-and-counting people who clicked on the Reddit post that started it all.
Here’s the story: A guy found his ex-GF’s pregnancy test in his medicine cabinet, took the test for laughs, and found out he was pregnant.
At least that’s what the test said. It seemed funny, so a friend of his posted a cartoon of the story on Reddit. Comments to the post noted that pregnancy tests identify hCG, a hormone produced during pregnancy — and in testicular cancer.
Sure enough, the man found he had a small tumor in one of his testicles. A follow-up post says it was a very early, curable tumor.
Does all this make sense? I asked Bruni Nazario, MD, WebMD’s resident endocrinologist.
“Yes, this is possible. Testicular cancer makes hormones and one hormone produced is hCG, the same hormone produced by embryonic tissue during pregnancy. This cancer also produces AFP, a fetal protein measured during pregnancy.”

Lola Omotayo
Can you summarise the journey of Lola Omotayo from a little child to who she is now?
The journey has been a very interesting one. My Dad is a Nigerian and my mother is a Russian. I was brought up in a household where both cultures are very important to my family. As a child, I went to boarding school where I learnt how to speak Yoruba. It wasn’t one of those glamorous schools, it was in Ondo State. Basically, my father wanted me to have reality check of where I come from and what I need to aspire to be as an adult. From my mother’s angle, she imbedded her own culture on us as well. She insisted that we speak Russia at home, and we speak Yoruba at home as well, so I got the best of both languages. Eventually in 1990, I went to the University of Ife for a short while to study Psychology, but Nigeria was in a terrible state then; universities were on strike and all that.

His extensive real estate portfolio, jets, yachts and current cash position, which includes more than $300 million in recently awarded Dangote Cement dividends, Dangote is now worth more than $20 billion. The price is largely a market response to the company’s impressive 2013 Q1 results.

Nigerian women lead in skin bleaching – WHO

* In extreme cases of skin bleaching, the skin can become multi-coloured and marred with inflammation or scarring.
Via - Vanguard 
The World Health Organisation, WHO, has said 77 percent of women in Nigeria use skin-lightening products, the world’s highest percentage. The figure compares with 59 percent in Togo, and 27 percent in Senegal.
The WHO report said the reasons for this are varied but most people said they use skin-lighteners because they want “white skin”.
WHO also said skin bleaching comes with hazardous health consequences. The dangers associated with the use of toxic compounds for skin bleaching include, blood cancers such as leukemia and cancers of the liver and kidneys, as well as severe skin conditions. It said hardcore bleachers use illegal ointments containing toxins like mercury, a metal that blocks production of melanin, which gives the skin its colour, but can also be toxic.
