The past week has ‘killed’ me. It has stripped me of whatever
‘self-importance’ I nursed in the corners of my mind. It has broken me
and opened me up to my real self. It has brought me to a deeper level of
self-awareness, one I am most grateful for.
When I sat with my MacBook to type my last blog, I never imagined it
would generate the kind of attention it did and continues to. I have one
last thing to say on this issue before I lay it to rest and move on. (I also hope
others can move on too, we have too much going on in this Country to
continue to peddle one for longer than necessary.)
A very big thank you to everyone that has felt it necessary to talk
about this issue and spread it throughout Nigeria and the foreign scene.
I read every email sent to me with awe that people would take the time
out to reach a total stranger like me.

Omotola Jalade, Omosexy, as she is popularly called, use to be a tomboy, she said
she used to scare boys when she was much younger.
Who would have thought that the sexy Nollywood screen goddess was once a tomboy; well in a shocking revelation with a UK-based newspaper, Telegraph recently the screen Goddess slated that she had two younger brothers and that rubbed off on her making her a tomboy.
“I have two younger brothers and was a tomboy, fiercely independent. I
used to scare boys from a very young age. They found me too much,
because I knew what I wanted and I’d boss them around. In those days my
mother would joke that I would never find a husband.”
Nigeria’s representative in the just concluded Big Brother Africa
reality TV show, Beverly Osu during their presentation to the media at the Protea Hotel, Lagos last Thursday said that she was sorry for embarrassing our Nigerians.
Here's what Bev said: On Embarrassing Nigerians
I don’t feel happy about it because this is the first time, I
represented the country in any continental competition. But the fact
remains that if you didn’t go for it, you wouldn’t know how it’s in the
House. I wasn’t there with my cell phone to be able to communicate with
the outside world. I was just there alone. I’m sorry for embarrassing my
country. I didn’t do it intentionally. My participation in the show was
not to embarrass my country. I am a proud Nigerian.

Rumors of Kris Jenner's talk show's demise have been greatly exaggerated.
On Wednesday, Radar Online reported that the mother-of-six's show had been axed from the network thanks to "abysmal" ratings.
"It is a very crowded market and Kris didn't do anything to set herself
apart from the field," a source told the gossip site. "Believe it or
not, most of America doesn't want to hear about the Kardashians for an
hour every day."
But Fox reps slammed the report, confirming that Jenner had not been booted from the network.
Chief Femi's Fani Kayode response. Read below.
This morning Cheif Femi Fani-Kayode woke up to find a letter that was
published as an advertorial in Thisday Newspaper purportedly by
Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu's lawyer threatening to sue him for mentioning
her in his article and claiming that she has never met him before. She
also said that he was being malicious. The matter has of course been
reffered to Chief Fani-Kayode's lawyers who will now take it up.
Ordinarily he would have not have said a word about this matter because
he sympathises with her for whatever she may have been going through.
However now that she has put it in the public realm Cheif Fani-Kayode is
compelled to formally respond.
To the assertion that he never knew her and that they were never friends he says this is false
and he asks why would he lie? The public evidence is to the contrary.
Chief Fani-Kayode would not want to say anything to embarrass her
because that would be ungentlemanly.…

that the former minister writes an apology and retraction of the said
libelous publication in The Sun and Thisday newspapers, as well as

Here's what Ruggedman told Vanguard in this
interesting interview, he talks about romance, why he's still single. You seem not to be the romantic type?
Says who? I am very romantic when I’m with the right woman. Just like love and marriage, romance isn’t something I throw around.
I remember one St. Valentine’s day. I went to see my Val but I didn’t
meet her at home. I tied a rose(a real one not plastic) to her door and
wrote my initials on a paper. When she returned and saw it, she knew I
was the one who put it there.
The incident that made me put my romance in check happened years ago too
on another St. Valentine’s day. I bought loads of gifts and fifteen
cards because I don’t like getting just one. I even booked an hotel room
for dinner and all. All she did was say “you shouldn’t have done all
these!” She didn’t even bring me a card. After that, I put a leash on my
romance. She has to be worth it before I show her that side of me.
