Oh dear, these two former friends are back fighting. Tonto Dikeh and Fashion stylist, Toyin Lawani who used to be very good friends are back on social media trying to wash their dirty linen in public. Ok, let me go straight to the point. Toyin claims she styled Tonto for a Complete Fashion Party few years ago and Tonto this week did a throw back and gave her new stylist the credit.
Toyin felt bad and quickly posted a picture of herself and Tonto Dikeh at the event (above) and tagged her, to make everyone know she actually made the dress and styled her. She even threatened to sue whoever was giving her credit to someone else. The statement made Tonto angry and made her come online this morning to say, nobody should use her to gain more followers or for publicity stunt, attract new clients for your buzz, i aint giving you no glory on any sh*t, she said.
Tonto also laughed off the suing issue, saying I hope you know I can also get you sued. What ever happened to their friendship! Continue below.

Trust Nigerians to over react in matters like this. The family of Nigeria’s fourth Ebola victim, Late Ms. Justina Ejelonu who worked as a nurse at First Consultant Hospital in Lagos before meeting her untimely death, have cried out over the public humiliation they have being facing ever since their sister passed away at Mainland hospital in Yaba where she was isolated.
According to her sister who spoke to Sahara reporters on the phone said, it’s so sad that her husband has been made to go on compulsory leave from work out of fear that he might have contracted the deadly Ebola disease. Her parents and other siblings are also not left out, as neighbours have been carefully avoiding them, she said in a low disturbing tone.
Mrs. Anugwolu also noted that, her late sister did not spend her last days in Enugu but in Lagos where she died and was buried and wonder why they have to face such humiliation from neighbours.
A man Mr. Difference Ogba has just been jailed for bathing his onetime lover, Ms. Paulina Imuere with acid on the 28th of August 2010.
Ms. Paulina Imuere met her lover some months after separating from her husband over irreconcilable differences. According to her, she relocated to Delta State when her husband took custody of their three children and met Ogba few months later.
Her church members later informed her that Ogba was married with four kids, and after investigating, she found out it was true and told him they can't continue with the relationship, but Ogba refused. He was fond of always coming to her compound to make noise and cause quarrel with her, so she had to relocate. Continue below.
For those of you who have seen the movie, Gamblers and have been doubting iof Nkem Owoh touched Anita Joseph’s br**sts for real or not, doubt no more because the actress just confirmed he did. While speaking with a Vanguard reporter, Anita said the director said he was supposed to touch it for real, and he had to allow him touch it. The interview;
There was a movie I saw you, where Nkem Owoh was touching your b**bs, what movie was that?
That movie was The Gamblers. In the script, they said he was supposed to touch my br**sts; we have to make it real so I gave him my br**st to touch and that thing blew people’s minds. That was the whole idea, he touched it for real.
First Consultant Hospital Doctor, down with Ebola
A doctor at the First Consultant Hospital, Ladi Okubadejo, where Patrick Sawyer was treated has appealed to the US government to send the claimed experimental drugs on Ebola to Nigeria so that those who had contact with Late Patrick and have been infected with the virus could at least use it to sustain their lives.
Doctor Okubadejo made the plea yesterday while addressing journalists, stating that it’s unfair that his colleague Ms. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh (pictured above), a Senior Consultant Physician and Endocrinologist at First Consultant Hospital might die of the virus just because she treated the late Liberian. She does not deserve to die, he said.
Against the report on Thursday that victims quarantined in the Mainland hospital, Yaba have not been receiving adequate medical attention, the Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Jide Idris said yesterday that the statement is far from the truth.
Speaking with journalists yesterday, he said though the Lagos State Government is yet to receive a penny from the N1.9bn intervention fund approved by the Federal Government to fight Ebola in Nigeria, the State Governor, Raji Fashola has being funding the medical expenses so far.
“All the money spent on the health of the Ebola victims were funds released by Governor Babatunde Fashola. Perhaps the Federal Government will release it later. But for now, we are grateful for the technical support the Federal Government has given us in the fight against the virus,” he said.
He also called experts in different medical fields to volunteer themselves by coming for training so that they could help at this critical time, when more hands are needed.
I got a call on Wednesday morning from one of our popular female artistes asking if she could be a guest on my radio show to promote her new album that is meant for release this month. I said, “Why not? It will be my privilege to have you on my show.” As we talked on, I tried chipping in a little advice that it might not be a good idea releasing an album in the middle of an ebola crisis; suggesting that right now people might be too worried and preoccupied with the ebola scare to care about a new album. I told her she would stand the risk of being branded insensitive for dropping her album at a time the country is having a crisis of some sort.
He emerged from his room in a red T-shirt and blue denim on Sunday, August 3, 2014 in a state of despair and sober reflection. Slowly settling down in a white plastic chair in the hotel lobby where he had agreed to speak with our correspondent, he told a rather unusual story of his ordeal in the hands of his close friend who lured him into selling one of his kidneys for just $7,500 (N1.2m). That was 2008.
However, before he could talk, our correspondent had to part away with N10,000, N5,000 paid in cash and the other N5,000 for exotic drinks and meal.

First, I will say that we (women) are like flowers that blossom for sometimes, but after a while go down. If you misuse your body when you are growing up, it will definitely tell on you when you are ageing. I advise young women not to misuse their body for monetary reasons. Secondly, I will advise them to go to school and try to complete their education. They should be well focused on a particular vocation and develop on it. Continue below...

Relations of those who have been quarantined at the Lagos Ebola centre have said the victims are not adequately taken care of. While speaking with Premium Times today, one of the relations that do not want his name published so that his relation won’t be victimized said, they go as far as buying antiseptic liquid and toiletries for them to make use of. He said a lot that would shock you.
I know the State Governor, Babatunde Raji Fashola has visited this place and even said the victims are well taken care of, and for so many reasons I believe him and know he would never allow any family member to buy things as cheap as toiletries for their relations to make use of especially at this critical time. So when I saw the story I decided to bring it here, so that the Governor can read and investigate.
Below is what the relation told Premium Times;
Patrick Sawyer, the late Liberian-American, who brought the deadly Ebola virus to Nigeria, deceived and manipulated the Liberian government and the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, to enable him travel to Nigeria, an official, who admitted approving Mr. Sawyer’s travel, has said.
Sebastian Muah, who until recently was the Liberian Deputy Minister of Finance for Fiscal Affairs, said in an email to Premium Times that the late Mr. Sawyer deceived the Liberian government into believing that he was “Ebola Free’.
The Minister of Health, Onyebuchi Chukwu, today in Abuja said another Nigerian doctor has tested positive to the deadly Ebola disease. The said doctor was one of those who treated Sawyer.
Sadly, Premium Times also says another nurse who treated Sawyer has died this afternoon around 1pm at the Lagos hospital where those being quarantined are kept. Her family members who were at the hospital watching from afar were seen crying and making phone calls. It just keeps getting sad! Really sad. May her soul rest in peace.
