Hmm so some people who were at Obalende today, an area usually populated said there was no traffic at all today and the place was not jammed packed like it used to be. Only few people were seen on the bridge and they made sure no one touched or pushed each other, everyone carefully walked on his or her own. Again, not too many cars were moving, an observer said.

The Minister of Health, Professor Onyebuchi Chukwu yesterday confirmed two new cases of Ebola infection in Lagos, which now brings to nine, the number of cases recorded in Nigeria so far, Nigerian Tribune reports.
He also announced that 139 people were currently under surveillance. Professor Onyebuchi made these known while addressing newsmen in Lagos to give an update on the country’s situation as regards the disease which spread panic across the nation between Thursday and Friday morning.
The spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has been arrested by security agents in Osogbo, on the eve of the state's governorship election.
In a statement issued in Osogbo on Friday night, his personal assistant, Mr. Williams Adeleye, said he was on the phone with him when suddenly he heard voices said 'you are under arrest, enter this vehicle'.
Mr. Adeleye said his subsequent attempts to reach his boss failed, as his numbers all rang out.
Ebolaphobia is the new term in town as panic has swept through Nigeria and beyond in the wake of the lethal virus. The campaign has seen so much twists and turns such that the fear of the disease is causing more harm than the disease itself. But from all we have heard and seen in the past few weeks, to doubt the existence of ebola will be the height of stupidity. It is real and it kills and everyone should take all precautionary measures suggested by health organisations.
Fast rising singer, Sean Tizzle has explained why a lot of people think he bleaches. Sean said a lot of people think he bleaches because his knuckles are black, but they have been like that from birth.
I heard that as well. I don’t bleach my skin. I know why people are saying that. It is because my knuckles are dark. But they have always been like this from birth. I have tried everything but my knuckles have remained like this. I will not fight God. He created me this way. So I have left my hands like this.
About going to school, he said;
I tried a bit, at least I still entered the university. I did a three-year diploma programme in Theatre Arts at the University of Ibadan.

The CEO of VonneCouture, Yvonne Nwosu is a year older today and she decided to celebrate it by posting s*xy new pictures of herself.
Ghanaian actress Juliet Ibrahim is upset with on air personalities who have been joking about Ebola on air. The actress says it makes no sense when people who are supposed to pass information across to the masses joke about such an important issue. She also asked people to stop sending senseless bc's because it's not a joking matter and anyone can fall victim of the disease if care is not taken especially when people in neighbouring countries have been dying and some with their entire family. Her words;
Seriously it's sad how many are so ignorant and heartless. Our brothers and sisters in neighboring countries are dying daily from a deadly viral disease that has no cure and could hit any one of us if we are not careful yet we have others senselessly waking up in d morning taking time off their jobless schedules to type rubbish and broadcast it! Must every thing be a joke? Continue below...
Mock-up: Not a good look

As blogs now offer some of us the opportunity to open up and share our pains, I thought it would be a great idea to share a pain that is making me go bananas at the moment.
My parents practically forced my girlfriend on me about four years ago because they saw and still see her as a girl that is well-brought up. No doubt she is every inch a wife material, but not the one for me though. My take on it is that she is too submissive and hardly ever argues with me since we have been dating. She concurs with everything I do, and the more reason I sometimes worry about both of us having a future together.

The Nigeria music industry has evolved into a global phenomenon with the emergence of young, vibrant, talented entertainers, songwriters and producers who churn out amazing tunes at an amazing frequency to keep the attention of their growing global fan base while gaining international recognition and success.
There seems to be no end in sight to this revolution with a drive by young and talented prospects aspiring to make a name for themselves in the entertainment industry. Many uber-talented singer-songwriters however do not make it to the big stage, playing for the equivalent of beer money in restaurants, make shift hangout spots, on street corners and basically everywhere that will have them.

Okay so PDP’s Iyiola Omisore slightly dodged the first Tv debate between him, the present Governor, Rauf Aregbesola and other candidates, with only Aregbesola in attendance.

I love politics!

Since my husband lost his job, things between us have not gone smoothly. I and my son have been at the receiving end of his frustration and anger; making it look as if we caused his misfortune.
He was always beating me up, while accusing me of infidelity whenever I got back late from work. It’s been two years since he lost his job, but he has been unable to get over the pain that came with it. I stayed with him all through and coped with the mental and physical torture he subjected me to, I had to seek for help when I became depressed and almost committed suicide. They advised me to leave, and I left three days ago. Since then, he has been sending me threat messages to come and pack the rest of my belongings, and he will not miss me or my son.
A video is currently circulating online about a Fire Challenge Game gone wrong, where a mother was seen filming her son who set himself ablaze playing the game. The boy screamed in agony as he tried to put out the fire, while his mother filmed him on laughing. Watch the video after the cut.

“Shout out to him. I'm still a big fan. It was nothing but don't throw a shade at me, especially when we were on the flight earlier. By the way, check the numbers on my last concert. Let's leave it like that,” he said.
