THIS IS HOW DAVID LUIZ WANTS HIS DAUGHTER TO LOOK LIKE

I'm a fan of Chelsea defender, David Luiz's curly hair. I love the colour and particularly the way it bounces back and forth. Going by his instagram picture, it seems the 26 year-old Brazilian doesn't have plans to wear a new look soon. The troublesome but friendly footballer posted a lovely picture of a girl wearing a similar hairstyle as his, and then with this caption, "I want my daughter to be like her! Perfection." He wants the same hair for his future daughter. You have no idea the number of comments this has generated……of course he's a...

REASONS IGBOS AND YORUBAS SHOULD’NT MARRY. DO YOU AGREE?

This article was written by Vera Ezimora, stumbled upon it minutes ago while surfing the net so I decided to share. I find it really hilarious. when I saw the headline, I really don’t know why my mind went straight to Femi Fani Kayode and Bianca Ojukwu’s relationship/conflict. (I hope I’m not courting trouble) Vera writes, “If you have been pressured into breaking up because of tribal differences and you have no idea why you should – or if you should, then I am here to help you make that decision.” Reasons Igbos Should NOT Marry Yorubas: (1) They’re dirty. (2) All they know how to do is party. (3) They eat too much oil. (4) Their women flirt/sleep around too much. (5) Their men will ALWAYS cheat with a Yoruba woman. (6) They are loud and obnoxious. You can hear them from a mile away. (7)  They are wild. They are the real “Akata” people. (8) They are Nigeria’s problem. (9) They don’t understand the Igbo culture. (10)  They do too much juju. (11)  They betrayed the Igbos during the Biafran war. (12) And to top the list, they are not Igbo. Reasons Yorubas Should NOT Marry Igbos: (1) They’re rude; they have no respect. (2) All they know how to do is chase money. (3) Their pounded yam is as hard as stone. (4) They don’t put...

COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT SCANDAL: NIGERIAN WRITER/PUBLICIST VOWS TO DRAG BIG BROTHER HOUSEMATE TO COURT

I got this press release from a Nigerian writer/publicist, Joy Bewaji accusing Big Brother UK housemate, Makosi Musambasi of copyright infringement scandal. And she has vowed (going by her tweets (@joybewaji)) to drag her to court. Here's her side of the story, however, I'm making efforts to contact the latter and get /post her side of the story. Read on Makosi Musambasi (Big Brother UK housemate) lives in Nigeria and is dying to be a "star". So I came on board- we were introduced by a mutual acquaintance. First she wanted PR for her TV show that was to debut on DSTV, but then she got entangled in other activities. Four months later and Makosi is back with that itch- to become a superstar! She is unhappy that she is not on billboards, endorsing brands, gracing the red carpet, surrounded by swarm of fans falling all over her; she can't understand why I can't get her VVIP tickets, why she is not on the cover of Complete Fashion, why nobody knows her or waves to her when she visits the mall. So I try to explain to her that the Nigerian public would only find you worthy of attention and respect if you build a proper brand- away from reality TV sensationalism.I gave her a few suggestions. She chose one of them- to write her a book. I picked...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY OLOLADE…….

I asked few friends, “Do you think I should give myself a birthday shout out on my blog?”. The Yeses overshadowed the Nos. Someone asked, did you have to ask that? Common, it’s your blog. Yea, but I could be “pen-shy”. So here I am. First things first. I’m immensely grateful- to God, my family, friends, readers, fans (if I have any.lol) for Everything- the additions, substractions, multiplications and so forth. God bless you real good. Wow! Two decades and a half on planet earth. I told myself, another birthday has arrived? But it really seems only yesterday that I was a whole year younger! I remember every single thing that happened last year. It’s feels so wonderful that I’m standing before another one – so soon. A little about me- I’m 4 out of 5 (my position in the family). The only girl (this should answer numerous questions on my penchant for football), ‘quarter to tomboy’, single and being searched.lol, bubbly, energetic, ambitious, optimistic, restless and of course very pesky. Pastimes- writing (mostly poems), playing scrabble and watching good movies/football. Dreams- being a celebrated writer, a quintessential PR Executive and outstanding success in all I do. Fears- getting married to a wrong partner and not making Heaven. Lastly, I’m not yet fulfilled, I’m on the path and I’m going confidently in the direction of my dreams. Thank You...

TRIBUTE TO LATE VETERAN BROADCASTER, YINKA CRAIG

How time flies. 2 days ago marked exactly 5 years that late veteran broadcaster, Yinka Craig bowed to beyond. His son, David Olamide Craig has written an emotional tribute to the doyen of the tube. Read on. 23rd of September 2008. 9 am. I was in theatre assisting the caesarean section delivery of a patient at the National Hospital in Abuja when I heard the news. I always thought it paradoxical that I was helping to bring forth a life just at about the same time the life of the one who brought me forth was slipping away. The consultant informed me that I had a visitor and instructed me to scrub out. As I walked out of theatre into the hallway, still wearing my surgical mask I saw my Aunt. She didn't have to say a word; I saw it in her eyes. My father had passed on.Yinka Craig was a talker.As far back as I can remember, people always seemed to want to hear him speak. And so whether it was his jocular football or boxing commentary, his humorous insights on 'Newsline' and 'AM Express' or his hard-line style of interview on Presidential media chats, Yinka Craig was the quintessential broadcaster.I remember my siblings and I would huddle in front of our old Panasonic television on Sunday nights (the only time we were allowed to overstay our...
