HIPHOP DUO, SKUKI SET TO LAUNCH PEESHAUN CONDOMS

Does it sound odd? We'll find out why they are going into this line of business. Nigerian hiphop group, Tumininu Laolu- Oguniyi and Atewologun Laolu-Ogunniyi popularly called Skuki, will be launching their own brand of condoms next year. Adducing reasons for delving into the business, the brothers who became famous after their hit song, Banger stated that it is their way of giving back to the society and preaching about sex education to teenagers. "We are great believers in the fact that the youth are the leaders of tomorrow and have to learn from a young age that if you can't abstain, you have to play safe. But not only that, we are looking at it from the concept of family planning, of teenage pregnancies and putting a stop to it. Every pregnant teenager in our society is another teenager that has to stop schooling in order to handle the situation they find themselves in. It goes way more than just the condom and sex part." They...

GANGNAM STYLE TO BE INCLUDED IN THE BRITISH DICTIONARY

The horse-riding dance is addictive, it became the most-watched video in Youtube history, and now Psy's Gangnam style is about to be included in British dictionary. It was picked along with fiscal cliff, Romneyshambles as some of Collins Dictionary's words of the year. Fiscal cliff and Romneyshambles were drawn from American politics. On the choice of the three words, Ian Brookes, the dictionary's consultant editor said, "We were looking for words that told the story of the year. Some words are from events that have been and gone and so are not likely to stick around but others are probably here to stay. Gangnam Style has been heard by so many people that I think it's probably earned the right to go into the dictionary." Source:...

FRIENDS OF ABDUCTED STARS (NKIRU SYLVANUS& KENNETH OKOLI) WRITE INSPECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE

The last has certainly not been heard of the kidnap case involving Nollywood stars; Nkiru Sylvanus and Kenneth Okoli (ex Mr Nigeria). Here's a copy of the letter their friends penned to the Inspector General of Police. We hope this goes a long way. Meanwhile, they took the above picture shortly before their abduction.December 19th, 2012Mr. Mohammed Abubakar,Inspector General of Police,Force Headquarters,Louis Edet House,Abuja, FCT Dear Sir,NOLLYWOOD ACTORS' KIDNAP: PLEASE, BRING OUR COLLEAGUES BACK HOME FOR CHRISTMASWe write to formally inform your esteemed office of the kidnap, last Sunday, December 16th, of two of our colleagues, enterprising entertainers, Nkiru Sylvanus and Kenneth Okolie. The two actors were in Owerri, Imo State, shooting a movie when they were forcefully abducted by masked gunmen. Some hours later, the mindless abductors contacted family and friends of Ms Sylvanus especially demanding a N100m ransom. Up till now, we cannot fathom the rationale behind their kidnap. And their abductors have advanced none.Perplexingly, about five days after this untoward incident, no concerted efforts, as far as we know, are being made to rescue these hardworking and patriotic Nigerians who sweat and toil to bring joy into millions of homes and hearts across Nigeria and the globe. Indeed, it is sad and heartbreaking. It is even more worrisome and befuddling considering that these actors' kidnap is coming just days after the Police, under your distinguished leadership, valiantly...
