It is very true that being in showbiz is lonely and if you do not handle it well, you would end up being the loneliest person on earth. This is because sometimes, you feel like the whole world does not understand you, you feel they are expecting too much from you.
I have told myself that I have to accept who I am, I am human and so I have to get grounded for her, one is easily lonely when pride sets in. ‘Sometimes when there is pride, you feel lonely. You are tempted to feel you cannot go about your normal activities like you would like to just because you are a known figure, she told Ghana’s Neat FM.

For their 50th anniversary issue, Cosmpolitan Magazine tapped the six Jenner/Kardashian women as their cover stars. While it’s a beautiful family photo featuring Khloe, Kourtney, Kim, Kris, Kylie, and Kendall in crisp white shirts, the cover line dubbing the clan, “America’s First Family” has brought the magazine under considerable fire.
So many Americans have called them out saying it is tasteless and disrespectful to name them America’s first family when they are actually not. See some of the tweets after the cut.

The Nigerian presidency has confirmed the arrest of a former Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke, in London, over allegations of corruption and money laundering.
“The government is aware of the arrest and all the government investigative agencies are working very closely with the British law enforcement,” the Senior Special Assistant to the President, Garba Shehu, told Premium Times exclusively on Sunday.
“Nigerian authorities are saying for the first time that matters are being handled with seriousness and deep commitment. Nobody wants to give the impression that this government is frivolous and unserious.
“For this reason, government is only confirming active collaboration. Beyond this, we are not saying more. In due course, Nigerians will be briefed on updates as appropriate,” he said.
Well someone in Lagos did, lol.
197 Nigerians, who escaped from war- torn Central African Republic arrived in Yola yesterday. Charles Otegbade, the Director Search and Rescue of the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, made this known in Yola.
Speaking shortly after receiving the returnees, Mr. Otegbade, an Air Commodore, said the migrants were Nigerians after thorough investigations. He said the returnees escaped from CAR unrest early last year.
According to him, they are the remaining Nigerians who are settled at international camps in Eastern Cameroon Republic.
My everyday struggle but guess what, if mere word could break me, nothing would've been left of me. One thing we have to bear in mind is, we have miserable animals living among us, they are sad and have no lives, don't ever let their bitterness on life move or influence you negatively, instead pray for them cos they really don't know any better
After the blog post we made here, when an LL reader sent us exclusive photos of late Rashidi Yekini’s house and how the mansion has depreciated in no time and most importantly, how it has been a threat to some of the people in the area, as they say it houses different reptiles and what have you. Well, the family members saw the blog post and began work on it. According to the LL reader, clearing of the mansion started on Friday and it will end this evening. As I type this, people there are currently tiding up the mansion as all weeds have been brought down.
Ladun, the house looks new again, this is how late Rashidi Yekini’s house should be. I pray they will get tenants into the apartments. Thank you Ladun for the blog post, the LL reader said as he sent in new photos. Whoop whoop! Atleast we made a change. One out of many, lol. Now see the power work below, lol.
The Nigerian Army today said no amount of distractions would deter it from ending the Boko Haram insurgency in Nigeria by December. The Theatre Commander, Operation “Lafiya Dole”, Yushau Abubakar, gave this assurance while speaking in Maiduguri.
The army’s December target is a bid to implement a directive by President Muhammadu Buhari asking the army to defeat the insurgents in three months.
He said the bombings were aimed at diverting the attention of the military from achieving its target in the ongoing anti-terrorism war.
Ebony Edozie, a native of Umuajara Ubogwu in Ofekatta autonomous community Awo- Omumma in Oru East council area of Imo state, is now writhing in severe pains after his wife forcefully ripped open his scrotum with one of the testes badly damaged during a scuffle.
Sunday Sun reliably gathered from source that Mr. Edozie a pools agent suffered this cruel fate last Thursday when he reprimanded his wife, Ndidi for severely beating their three-year old sick daughter who had thrown up the medication being administered on her by the wife.
The source further revealed that the wife who was angered by her husband’s reprimand engaged him in a verbal war which later degenerated into a serious fight.
Her death is still very painful to many. Late Bimbo Odukoya’s first son. Jimmy Odikoya in an interview with Arukaino Umukoro, spoke about the death of his mom and why he thinks she knew she was going to die at the time she did.
Did she have any premonition about her death?
I would say she did. Some things happened which made me think so. She was talking to my sister in 2005 on the phone and she said to her, ‘When you’re having your first child and I’m not with you, know that the Holy Spirit is with you.’ My sister said, ‘What do you mean, wherever you are in the world, you would fly to visit me.’ My mum said, no. She then gave my sister a scripture to read, which my sister didn’t read until after my mum had died. When she read it, it was Paul, the apostle, addressing one of the churches; it read, “Dearly beloved, the time has come for me to depart.” That was freaky. I also remember right before they boarded the plane, she was telling her personal assistant about each of us, her children, in details, and her PA was wondering why she was talking that way about her kids. Also, the last birthday she had with my father was his 49th birthday in 2005. She said God had told her to celebrate him big. People usually marked a 50th birthday in a big way. But she organised a big celebration as if it was dad’s 50th birthday; not knowing that it was the last birthday celebration she would have with my dad, that she would not be around for his 50th birthday.
The younger brother of Moshood Abiola, who won the annulled June 12, 1993 presidential election, Mubashiru Abiola is dead. The younger Abiola died on Friday at his home in Gaa Sabo area of Abeokuta after a protracted illness. He was buried on Saturday and aged 74. When newsmen on Saturday went to pay the family a visit, they observed family members still wailing and grieving over his death.
The British National Crime Agency has dispatched a team of detectives to Nigeria who are now working with the operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to probe Diezani Alison-Madueke, Nigeria’s former Petroleum Minister, during the administration of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
Findings by Sunday Punch revealed that the team of investigators from the UK Police was drawn from the Seizures Organised Crimes Agency.
A top operative of the EFCC, who spoke to one of Punch’s correspondents on condition of anonymity on Saturday, said the SOCA team had been involved in a discreet investigation of Alison-Madueke for two months before they finally moved against her.
It will be recalled that the former petroleum minister left Nigeria shortly before the inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari in May this year.
The Commissioner of Police and Commandant, Nigeria Police College, Ikeja, Tunde Sobulor, is dead. Sobulor died on Friday in Atlanta Georgia, United States, after a protracted illness.
The eldest son of the late Commissioner, Robert Sobulor, confirmed the death and said he got the news around midnight Nigerian time when his sister who had gone with him for the treatment called him.
Late Mr. Sobulor was promoted to the rank of Commissioner of Police and posted to Ikeja police college in 2014. He will be buried in the US, his family has said.
A man has claimed he stole a truck so he can be jailed just to get away from his wife. Hayden Vandiver is accused of breaking into his old workplace, damaging property and stealing a pickup truck belonging to his former boss, who he despised.
Speaking from behind bars to News 2, the 51-year-old from Tennessee, US, admitted the rampage last Sunday and said he was under the influence of drugs. But a grinning Vandiver also said he planned to get caught so he would be jailed and forced to leave his wife.
He said: "She is having a bad time right now. She knows I did this to get away from her."
Police say Vandiver was caught on camera stealing the 2012 prized Dodge 2500 and a trailer valued at over £40,000 ($60,000).
Authorities in Florida said a well-fed Burmese python gave a flea market shopper a scare when the wild snake turned up in a pile of clothes.
Miami Dade Fire Rescue posted pictures of the snake to its Twitter account and said the snake was found in a Homestead flea marker seller's pile of clothes where it had apparently "hid to digest last night's meal." The snake was discovered by the cloth seller who is a young woman. See another photo below.
