Independence: Full Text Of President Buhari's Speech

Today – 1st October is a day of celebration for us Nigerians.

On this day, 56 years ago our people achieved the most important of all human desires – freedom and independence. We should all therefore give thanks and pray for our founding fathers without whose efforts and toil we would not reap the bounties of today.

2. I know that uppermost in your minds today is the economic crisis. The recession for many individuals and families is real. For some It means not being able to pay school fees, for others it's not being able to afford the high cost of food (rice and millet) or the high cost of local or international travel, and for many of our young people the recession means joblessness, sometimes after graduating from university or polytechnic.

Rob Apologises To Kylie For Leaking Her Phone Number

Rob Kardashian has apologised to his baby sister Kylie Jenner for plastering her phone number on Instagram. On Friday morning the troubled reality star admitted the move may not have been appropriate.

'It was miscommunication on my end,' the reality star told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show.
I thought they weren't having Chyna at our baby shower. Chyna's baby shower is actually this Sunday, but they were trying to do a little surprise 'guy' baby shower for me and I was just upset trying to fight for Chyna like, 'Yo, she has to be at the baby shower. She's birthing my child. She needs to be there.'

'It was literally miscommunication and I probably shouldn't have went on Twitter, but I did.'

Kylie was forced to change her phone number after Rob's leak.

Are These The Worst Wedding Dresses EVER? Lol

Pictures sweeping Imgur show how resourceful brides have donned gowns made out of cakes, bedding and tissue paper in a series of eye-popping dresses that had all parts of the female anatomy on show.

Left to right: a gown fashioned from a bed sheet that wouldn't look out of place at a toga party; one woman showcases her blossoming baby bump by cutting a hole in the middle of her strapless gown; a bride ensures all eyes are on her with an eye-wateringly low neckline; and taking the 'meringue' theme to dizzying new heights, one bride pairs a frothy skirt with a billowing train, lacy garter and patent platform shoes. Now see even more alarming photos below, lol.

Koffi Speaks About Controversial Letter, Says To Hell With Whoever Thinks I Was Beefing Kiss Daniel, Others

Two weeks ago, Comedian koffi wrote an open letter in which was majorly directed at Kiss Daniel, then he diverted to others, but the letter was actually focused on Kiss Daniel. A lot of his fans and people in the industry reacted to the letter, but Koffi has now explained exclusively to Saturday Beats why he wrote it and says to hell with anyone who does not feel comfortable with it, lol. His words;

“In every vocation, there is a society that protects them. Vulcanizers, conductors, have associations that protect them. Entertainment associations do not protect entertainers. That is how businessmen entered Nollywood, started doling out money and they crumbled that sector. The same thing is happening to the music industry and that is why I shouted. These people bring their money into the business, find young boys to sign to their record labels, then they begin to dictate their career path. Tomorrow if Kiss Daniel does not make it, they would drop him and pick another person. By that time, he would have lost his fan base and interaction with people. Timaya knows how hard he fought to get his career back. J Martins is fighting to get his career back. Continue...
