There’s a heartbreaking moment in the new film charting the rise of boy band One Direction. 
The mother of group member Liam Payne, a 19-year-old Wolverhampton lad who is unashamed of admitting that his favourite movie is still Toy Story, is seen breaking down in the merchandise tent at Madison Square Garden in New York where the band is playing.
Karen Payne sobs inconsolably as she is filmed buying a £34.99 cardboard cut-out of her son. She says: ‘We miss him. He left home my little boy and became the boy in a magazine. If I have this I can still see him every day. When I see him on stage I absolutely burst with pride, but we do miss him so much.’

The Graphical Sketch of the Proposed Gbongan-Akoda Dual-carriageway
A prominent member of the immediate past administration in Osun State during the turning of sod of the construction of Osogbo East bye dual carriage way recently said it had become imperative for residents of Osogbo to ensure that they monitor the movement of their visitors who had visited them three years ago else they would get lost in transit as a result of massive road construction that has characterized the state capital and transformed it to a city to behold.
Elder Peter Babalola who was a former chieftain of the main opposition party in the State, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the Chief of Staff to former Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola for over seven years noted that by the time Governor Aregbesola completes his first term as governor of Osun State, the State would have witnessed a development that surpasses what has been on the ground since it was created on the 27th of August 1991.

Tope Alabi’s Enstranged Spiritual Father, Prophet Ajanaku Resurrects After Being Certified Dead


Controversial pastor and estranged spiritual father of popular gospel singer, Tope Alabi, Prophet Iretiola Ajanaku is said to have regained life after being certified dead.


Prophet Iretiola Ajanaku who was announced dead while sleeping on Sunday night  came back from dead. The controversial Prophet's death shocked Lagos and speculation this morning was that he had an over dose medicine and that lead to his death. 
Like a proverbial cat with nine lives, the Pastor and estranged spiritual father of popular gospel singer, Tope Alabi, Prophet Iretiola Ajanaku is said to have regained life after being certified dead.

Hospital sources revealed that while effort were being made to prepare him for morgue, the man, who has refused to die, awoke and shouted 'Thank You Jesus!'

The Prophet's wife, was yesterday telling sympathisers that “I knew daddy would come back to life again.” But as he lay motionless in death throughout yesterday, they wife was more scared, doubting if the Prophet will awake again or not.

The prophet is still in the hospital, as elders of the church, are insisting that the prophet should be left till Friday, believing that he would have come back fully to life.

"I Thank God for Your Life, My Husband" Tope Alabi's Reaction to Prophet Ajanaku's Death?


Tope Alabi's ertswhile prophet, Ajanaku passed on yester evening. The late cleric was Tope Alabi’s spiritual father until they both parted ways in early 2013 following claims of sexual harassment.
Well, it's like Tope has indirectly reacted to his death.
3 hours ago, Tope Alabi via her facebook page posted a photo of her husband, Soji Alabi, thanking God for his life.
She not only praised him but prayed for him in yoruba ---My Gift from God, I thank God for your life. Wape funmi in Jesus name ooo "God will keep you for me, you will live long for me in Jesus name...."
This is coming barely 24 hours after Ajanaku's death.

Dubai Hotel Gives Guests 24-Carat Gold IPads [Photos]


There's luxury, and then there's "damn, that sure is a pointless waste of money."
In a recent example of the latter, the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai, considered by some to be the most luxurious hotel on the planet, recently announced that it will be doling out 24-carat gold plated iPads to guests.
Guests at the hotel, which, by the way, stands on a man-made island, will be given said iPads upon check-in. From there, their goldly minted tablets will serve as a virtual concierge of sorts, allowing them to access pertinent hotel information. I would hope that the hotel, given its luxurious nature, would also extend its penchant for luxury to software. In other words, hopefully the iPad isn't merely a tablet to view the hotel's website. It would be nice if guests could use the device to schedule spa appointments, order from the hotel menu, etc.

Tearful Farewell As Mother Buries Her Twin Daughters Who Died In A Car Crash [Photos]



Sometime ago we reported the story about Twin sisters Khadijah and Khertima Taylor, 18, & Kafiya Gill who died in a car crash in San Fernando on Sunday morning of june 9th 2013 on their way home from a nightclub. Read Story Here  http://amazingstoriesaroundtheworld.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/twin-sisters-khadijah-and-khertima.html
In a touching display of motherly love, Desiree Waddell abandoned her seat and stood between her twin daughters Khadijah and Khertima Taylor’s caskets, singing to them for the last time at their funeral.

Smiling as she lovingly stroked photographs of her girls that were airbrushed onto their caskets, Waddell sang praises to Jesus Christ as mourners paid their last respects to the twins during their funeral service at the Revival Time Assembly Church, San Fernando.

 
Waddell was sitting next to the girls’ father, Edwin Taylor, when she seemed to be moved by the music and overcome with love for her 18-year-old twin daughters. She went to the girls’ caskets, which were airbrushed in their favourite colours—pink and purple—and sang. The twins’ brother, Dmitri, curled up and laid his head in his mother’s lap and cried himself to sleep. 

It was one of the many emotional moments at the funeral for the Marabella twins, both of whom were killed, along with their friend Kafiya Gill, on Sunday when the car they were in crashed at Cross Crossing, San Fernando.

FORMER NIGERIAN FEMALE FOOTBALLER BECOMES A MAN AFTER SURGERY [PHOTOS]


Former Super Falcons forward, Iyabo Abade, is the most celebrated high-profile case of a hermaphrodite in women’s football, who subsequently had surgery in 2004 and is now living as a man, with a new name, James Johnson. He tells ’TANA AIYEJINA about his travails trying to adjust to his new life as a man, societal discrimination and his aim to help hermaphrodites
 Now that you are a man, has it been easy playing men’s football?
I thank God for how far He has brought me. I have made every effort to get to the top as a footballer but there is no support from anywhere, even the Nigeria Football Federation. I am just trying on my own to get to the top but it hasn’t been easy. You go for trials and you do well and you are recruited but after sometime, they will start acting funny; they use my past against me. I try to ensure that I don’t let clubs know who I am.  I don’t like telling them that I am the former Iyabo Abade; I have to go there like every other normal player and fight for a place in the team. But when they hear that former Iyabo Abade has signed for either Crown FC or Plateau United, they start discriminating against me. Meanwhile I got there as James Johnson but they keep asking, “Can she cope in the midst of guys?” They have forgotten that I am a man and I met their requirements before they signed me up. Once they now know my past, they won’t allow me to play anymore. Were they blind when they signed me? With that, I feel frustrated and discriminated against so I decided that there was no need disturbing myself and I decided to quit. I am praying that God helps me so that I can continue my career abroad. I think things will be better over there.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned! In an amusing turn of events, an American woman who was ordered by a court to pay her ex-husband $50.12 as part of a divorce settlement sent the money to him in pennies delivered in Tupperware filled with rice and beans.
To add insult to injury, the unnamed woman wrote her husband a stinging farewell note.
‘Andy, Here’s forty seven dollars and twelve cents in pennies,’ the missive read. ‘The other three dollars paid for the containers that I used. Receipt is included if you want to return them…‘Oh! One last thing, I added beans and rice to remind you that you married a beaner : ) I hope you have a fab life! B/C I know mines 20x better without you in it!’
Photos of the coins divided into three plastic containers were posted on social media site Reddit on Tuesday by the husband, identified only as Andy from Omaha, Nebraska.
The story has stirred much interest among the users of the popular site, with many commenters siding with Andy and condemning his ex-wife’s stunt.

The events of the evening of May 14 will never be forgotten. Musa, Mercy and some of their children were home.
