Photos: Nadia Buari & Jim Iyke Back Together

It seems Emma Agu’s many leaked letters to bloggers can’t break this couple, and neither can Keturah, Jim Iyke’s ex break their relationship either. Jim and Nadia had serious misunderstanding weeks back and Nadia walked out of the relationship, especially with the whole Emma Agu drama calling Jim out and also posting his recorded phone conversations with him online. It was very messy, but I guess Nadia loves her man, and came to his defence to save the situation.

Emma proved it beyond every reasonable doubt that the two were no more, but one way or the other; Nadia saved the situation by coming back. And yes they actually broke up. Jim Iyke’s publicist confirmed it when he said there was no relationship without an issue. We are happy Nadia saved the situation. Btw, it was still Nadia that posted these photos online today of the two love birds.

Just Like Nigerian Pastors, Gospel Artistes Can’t Lead You To Christ- Etcetera Again

Just like our Nigerian pastors, Nigerian gospel songs cannot lead you to Christ. You can hate me all you want for saying this. After all, the early Christians were hated by the world for speaking the truth. Jesus himself warned us of this in John 15:19, “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own, but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

The truth is that Nigerian gospel songs are not spiritually uplifting. They are mostly about the things of the flesh’ about riches and fame. The simple use of religious terms and phrases here and there is not enough to lead anyone to Christ. I dare you to go to any Nigerian gospel musician’s website and see if you will find a simple plan of salvation. You won’t.

Denrele Wants Y’ll To Be Proud Of Him

                                                              Yeah yeah true…lol

Why Do You Think Some Married Men Can't Stand Successful Wives?

Well I totally agree with her, but how many African men will allow their woman to be independent? Some married successful women have said, their men feel they get shoulder to shoulder with them in terms of cash, which is unacceptable. Some of these men have told their wives they regret letting them work in the first place, while some out rightly stop them from working at some point.

I know a lady who is very successful at what she does, but her husband always feels threatened by success. They have two kids together, and at a point, he stopped her from working. She stopped working and after 9 months she opted for a divorce because the man could not meet their needs.

Her kids stayed at home for days because they could not pay school fees, it was so bad that they had to sell one of their cars at a point and yet the man refused to let her go back to work.

Why do you think some men can’t stand women who try to live independent lives (a woman who does not ask too much from her husband)?

Update On Pregnant Woman, Fasilat Yusuf Who Might Go To Jail Because Of N70,000

I’m really so impressed that a lot of people are willing to help the pregnant lady. I didn’t bother finding out her account details, cus when I read the story I just told someone near me to go to the said court tomorrow and see how we can get her details, so I can give her the money instantly, since the said Journalist seems not to be available.

But then, after reading your comments, I just felt God really wants to help her. So I won’t reject your funds, we will accept them. You know why? No amount of money given to her now will ever be too much. She is expecting a child, she will need money to buy things for the baby before he/she arrives, her hospital bills, food stuffs in the house and the list could go on.

So like most of you have suggested we will raise good money for her, so she can start a new life.

Indeed God will use us to turn her life around for good. Expect more updates on her tomorrow. Thank you LL readers…Glad we are still ONE good, happy, caring people…Thank you dearies. I can't be more thankful.
