Speaking in the edition of the Supermom Celebrity reality television show that would be broadcast this weekend, the Ibadan, Oyo State born singer says his love for music and peer influence led him into taking Indian hemp at an early age. “I was very young when I started taking Indian hemp but it wasn’t good for my system because anytime I took it, I would just sleep off for about five to six hours. Of course, it became very worrisome for my mother who went everywhere and did everything in order for me to stop but she never gave up on me,” he recalls. Corroborating this revelation, Obesere’s mother, Taibat Omobonike Akande, said at that time, “I and my husband wanted him to be well educated and have a good career but he chose music and started moving with bad boys who taught him how to smoke Indian hemp. Things were so bad that after taking it, I would be the one to go and pick him up where he would have slept off. At a point, I had to consult Islamic clerics to help me pray for him so he wouldn’t bring...

His spirit is glued to the Emirates! French international and Arsenal's all-time highest goal-scorer, Thierry Henry has revealed his plans to return to Arsenal. In an interview with skysports.com, the player whose career at the club produced a total of 226 goals in 369 appearances may return either as a player or coach; but he's yet to table this with Arsene Wenger. "I would like to go back to England with Arsenal for sure. I wasn't planning to go back to play last season. It was only because Gervinho and (Marouane) Chamakh went to the African Nations Cup. He continued, "I was there to train and they asked me if I wanted to play. Who knows what might happen in the future? I've not yet spoken to Arsene about it so I don't know what capacity I could go back in. Coaching does interest me but I don't know what my talent is going to be after I have finished my career. But I will go back to Arsenal." He explained. It would be recalled that the ex Barcelona player returned to the Emirates last year scoring two goals. He has 18 months left on his contract with New York Red...

By: Temitope BolarinwaI won't cry when you are gone I'm used to the hurt. Just like the other ones i've been simple enough to allow be the source of my joy, you have began to talk about how fantastic some of others like me are. Just like a few of them, at the very moment that our union began to make you appear like you are super human. The trend is so exact i can predict what will happen next, just at the time it looked like it was going to be more than just a union you begin to speak of moving on, i've handed my heart out and have handled walkaways. To be honest I wont even be surprised at yours. Just like a couple of them you have pulled out of our annual vacation claiming you need rest, if not for the fact that the trend looks so exact I would have asked that you bear with me another year but to be honest yet again, I know this cycle and imma not gonna try to stop the wheel. I'd rather make myself happy by the fact that my prediction of the wheel comes through than have you here half hearted. Yes you say other guys throwmore of the money around but you knew me even before you became this important in my life. You know how much...

Kennis Music singer, Goldie's eviction from the big brother Africa Stargame on Sunday, July 15, 2012 came to many as a rude shock; but one of the people who didn't take the news lightly is her fellow label mate-Kenny Saint Best (formerly known as Kenny Saint Brown) and she isn't mincing words about it In an interview with NET at Protea Hotel, Ikeja, during the press briefing held for Goldie a day after she returned home, the gospel singer insisted Goldie had all it takes to win the show but she was deprived. "I think they didn't even let us know if she had the least votes from the number of people that were on the eviction list. I just think she was being robbed and I don't see her being robbed, I see Nigeria being robbed of the opportunity of winning again." "We've heard that they didn't want Nigeria to win. They didn't even let us know if she had the least votes from the number of people that were on the eviction list… All the qualities were there, so I think she was denied." Hmmmmmmm! Source:...
