And here’s what she has to say about it;
"At this point in my career as a female artiste, I feel blessed to be embarking upon such a great opportunity. Despite the fact that I'm an artist and my passion is singing , I've already hosted numerous awards shows, red carpets, and major events across the globe. This experience will leave a lasting mark because Channel O has always been and will continue to be, one of the major music platforms in Africa. I'm looking forward to doing my best, interacting with my colleagues on the carpet, and brining my A game! I'm excited to once again experience the rich culture of South Africa, and to also have fun and enjoy every moment with my fellow African Artistes".
Found this on Facebook… smh
Pls kindly judge this matter..... I was in a bus, chatting with my friend on what's app and suddenly discovered that the man sitting beside me was reading my conversation. Since I did not want to embarrass the man, so l decided to change the topic "Abeg oga, please tell Kabiru Sokoto or Abu Qaqa that I only took two of the bombs we just manufactured for this operation. Let them know as well that I may find it difficult to get to the target place before the bombs explode because there is terrible traffic jam now but nevertheless, I am sure casualty figure will be high since we are 12 in our bus and all the vehicles in the traffic will be affected too. We have less than 3 minutes for the bomb to go off bye- bye and take care of my parents and siblings as agreed. The Man, without allowing the bus to stop quickly opened the bus window and jumped out and eventually died, pls who killed him?..
I or Amebo?

Prof. Wole Soyinka at a press conference tagged “Beyond Ebola and Beyond Reign of the Silent Killer” held at the June 12 Cultural Centre, in Abeokuta, Ogun state today revealed that he lived with prostrate cancer for 10 months. According to him, he only disclosed this so that people can go for medical check up regularly to detect any disease early enough.
“In November, last year, I discovered that I had cancer and I have been treating it. I finished treatment on October 28 and that’s why I’ve come out to tell you this. Many people start looking at you as if you are a ghost; No! It’s not a death sentence and it is curable. I have undergone the treatment and I even have a certificate and medal to show for it, but I don’t normally wear decorations.
“I want to use myself to encourage others to take whatever test available to them in our limited circumstances here and more importantly to encourage those who are in charge of our health to take the cancer menace seriously,” Soyinka said.

One of Britain's most dangerous sex offenders prowling a Toys R Us store for up to eight hours before targeting a seven-year-old girl has been re-arrested again.
Leslie Foster, 63, who had just been freed from a life sentence for the knifepoint rape of a teenager, was seen loitering around the aisles before accosting the girl when she became separated from her father and brother.
As the youngster looked for a Barbie doll to buy with her birthday money, Foster sneaked up to her and said he would buy her any toy she wanted.
“It is very bad (the scaling of the gate), though it is not only in Nigeria that such things happen. It is Satan, trying to destroy the government. We must not worry; everything will soon be in order. All armed forces must be liberal. They are there to defend Nigerians, not a political party. Politicians should also run away from thuggery and violence.
“Nigerians should not fear about what is going to happen in 2015. Boko Haram will soon be a thing of the past. Peace will reign. Don’t listen to prophesy of doom. 2015 is a good year for those who move close to God, but it is a dangerous year for those who are wicked – hired killers, kidnappers among others. Those who victimise the needy will be visited with the anger of God Almighty except they desist from evil acts.
Former president Olusegun Obasanjo over the weekend at an event rated the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan as below average.

Actor Kenneth Okonkwo in a new interview with City People has said he is a faithful man. According to him ever since he got married 7 years ago, he is yet to see another woman’s pant.

Speaking on how he maintains his urge while on locations, he said:
"What does it take? If I am on location and I feel the need, I can fly in, see my babe and fly back to location. At times I would be on location and after a while, I will scream I just have to go home. I don't know how my body is feeling. I am that straight forward. I will announce it in public. And if I don't run that time, something will happen".
Gbajabiamila who represents Surulere I constituency of Lagos State wrote on his Facebook; “What happened in the National Assembly yesterday will forever live in infamy. Never thought I would see the day when I would be forced to go over the assembly gates where I work to gain access into the chambers.
“But then our democracy has to be saved. It was pretty clear the presidency in spite of a court injunction wanted to do something sinister and illegal. They perfected the plot to stop the Speaker and the opposition leader from gaining entry. My members were already in chambers waiting for me to come in so as to provide leadership and direction. Most of them had gone over the fate too. I had to do the needful to save our democracy. We thank God we foiled their evil machinations. We will continue to be vigilant.”
