She went as far as saying no man should put a woman whom he once loved down and women shouldn’t bring down each other, referring to Baba Tee’s new girlfriend, Dupe Odulate. She said a lot and dropped different bombshells on Baba Tee and his new girlfriend. This is the part 4… enjoy it all after the cut.
Different strokes for different folks. Though a lot of artistes have said they prefer Chidinma in the game because she is calm, Burna Boy however likes his women wild and sassy. When asked on a Tv show this week about the kind of girl he likes, ‘Calm like Chidinma or wild like Cynthia Morgan’ he was asked, Burna Boy however replied saying “I think I’ll go with Cynthia Morgan,” before quickly adding “I mean I would have them both”.
Lol, we understand not everyone likes calm women and the first answer was actually what he meant.

According to the actor he will never be part of it either in the movies or real life. Here is what the man who is strictly against homosexuality told Saturday Beats;
“I have never done a gay movie in my life and I would never do such whether internationally or locally. There are certain things I don’t support and would never support and homosexuality is one of them. In as much as people are free to be who they want to be, I mean God gave us all free will, so who am I to judge? I would accept you for who you are but I would not encourage certain things. I would not be on platforms to encourage these kinds of things. It does not mean that I would judge you or discriminate against you but I would not be a part of such,” he said.
Billionaire Femi Otedola’s daughter, DJ Cuppy has said she is not in any relationship and the last relationship she had ended two years ago.

I don’t have a lover and with my tour coming up, I don’t have time to get into anything serious. Maybe I would find someone around Africa,” she said. Continue,,,
There are so many reasons why bailing out cash-strapped states that mismanaged public finances with over N7bn should be prohibited henceforth. We are talking about public funds here and Nigerian taxpayers need to watch their wallets. If not, there will be a call for a federal bailout to finance the purchase of private jets for state governors. The National Assembly should act now to ensure taxpayers aren’t forced to pay for years of mismanagement by government officials. Failure of some of these states to properly manage their funds might be rooted in an unholy alliance between the governors and their godfathers. Continue...
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has revealed that his eldest daughter, Iyabo, told him he was going to die in office. The former President also said his daughter said if that should happen, she would not weep for him.
The former President said he, nevertheless, replied his daughter that such would not mean anything to him since he would not be there to appreciate it.
Obasanjo, who said this in his controversial book, My Watch, said that was Iyabo’s submission when he informed her and three of his other children about his desire to contest the 1999 Presidential election.

OAP Freeze is not in the news again because of his expensive wrist watches, but something more personal. The father of two who has been separated from his wife for about a year now has filed a divorce suit in a Lagos court asking that his marriage be dissolved. Those in the know say his wife, Opeoluwa Olarinde who works with an Oil service company is not objecting to it. Tope actually walked out of their marriage last year with the couple’s two sons. Both parties have kept mute about what led to their marriage break up, but Freeze who only spoke about it recently said it was due to irreconcilable differences.
It will be recalled that on the 10th of May 2015, Freeze wrote a birthday message to himself on instagram saying it has been his best birthday in 15years. Freeze met his wife 15years ago but they got married after two years, which means they have spent 13 years together in marriage.
‘The Lord’s goodness is awesome. His love conquers all. This birthday has been my best in over 15 years!! The Lord has removed the monster that tormented me all this while. The cause of all my misery and affliction, the plaque in my tent, the thorn in my flesh, the source of my torment that bedeviled me, taunted and teased me, yet was the force behind my ordeal. Thank you lord for setting me free,” he wrote. Too sad!
A female tricycle operator in Lagos, Remi Johnson, is currently fighting for her life at the Federal Road Safety Commission hospital at Ojodu, Lagos following an attack by a LASTMA official. P.m.News gathered that Johnson, a widow and mother of two, was attacked by an official of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority for pleading on behalf of her brother, Smart Ofariko, who was arrested at Ogba-Ojodu road for obstructing traffic.
Investigations revealed that Ofariko was arrested by LASTMA officials for parking his tricycle at Aguda Bus Stop to receive a phone call.
So Ubi posted the photo of the lady, right, with this caption;
We had earlier reported that respected Lagos Lawyer, Festus Keyamo failed to clinch the rank of becoming a SAN this year again. What we however didn’t report is that a former Lagos Commissioner, Dr. Muiz Banire was one of the 21 Lawyers who were elevated today to the position of a SAN. Muiz is however trending on BBM. Whatever he is trending for is what we don't know, but we know he is trending. But most definetely, those in the know, knows why.
You are about to see another Kim K. If you think that Toyin Lawani is rich and ready to stay in her closet by just facing her designing work and other numerous things she does, then you are wrong because Toyin is about to get more famous. The mother of two has started shooting her own reality show and she is about to get in your faces. Toyin is presently in Ibadan, Oyo State which she says it’s her root and she can’t just start a reality show except she goes back home- where it all started. She also informed that her Grandpa, Elijah Babalola was a onetime minister of works and her grandma, the Adele Oba of Ikole Ekiti and one time Chief Justice of Oyo State.
Make money, then make yourself more famous. The slogan…lol. See more photos below.
Justice E Chukwu of a Federal High court sitting in Abuja has granted Murtala Nyako, the former governor of Adamawa state and his son, Abdulaziz Nyako, bail of N350 million.

Julius Agwu is one comedian who is very grateful to God at the moment. Julius who recently had a brain surgery in the States says we see different people every day but we have no idea of what they are passing through and we should just be thankful to God.

The first baby to be delivered in Lagos State, Nigeria, this year Miss Oluwajomloju Ogundimu has undergone successful heart surgery in India. She was born 12:01 am on 1 January, 2015 but her mother, a first class accountancy graduate from the University of Lagos passed on after giving birth before the baby was diagnosed of heart related problem.
She was flown to India on 9 July, 2015 for medical attention with the help of the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode and the operation was successful. Little Ogundimu and her grandmother, Mrs. Ogunnoiki Folake were at Alausa yesterday to thank Ambode for his kind gestures.
Hahaha OAP Freeze definitely sees all comments, hehehe . So I guess you guys made him post his latest acquisition without a price tag. The last time he posted one, he valued the wrist watch at $90k which is approximately N20m, and most of you chopped off his head. Well even though he did not give this a price, he still told us it’s a De Grisogono watch and it’s studded with diamonds.
Hilarious but at the same time, it is a very serious issue. Bayo Adeyinka who claimed he was at the Ikoyi passport office today explained how he was made to cough out extra cash to ‘touts’ and how most of them who were early callers were made to pray for 20mins ‘by force’ before their offices were officially declared opened. I laughed all through his writeup, quite funny and engaging, but then the truth is corruption must stop at Ikoyi Passport Office and all passport offices in Lagos. Please read;
There are times I feel that we put unnecessary emphasis on the corruption of political officers and appointees while neglecting that of civil servants. With my experience at the Ikoyi Passport Office in the last 24 hours, I am of the opinion that anyone serious about dealing with corruption should start from that place. In spite of a large sign that says 'Don't patronize touts', touts were all over the place disguised as photographers and lobbying on behalf of immigration officers. Continue...
Popular Lagos lawyer, Festus Keyamo has failed again in his attempt to clinch the rank of the Senior Advocate of Nigeria, as the Legal Practitioners’ Privileges Committee conferred the rank on 21 lawyers today without the well-respected lawyer, even though he made it to the final interview.
It was gathered that the 21 lawyers were selected after an interview of the 50 shortlisted candidates held on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Keyamo was shortlisted for the final interview last year also, but sadly did not make the final list. This will be the second time the Lagos Lawyer will get so close to getting the rank after previous attempts that failed to earn him an opportunity for the final interview.
A Tanzanian nurse who has just returned home after taking part in the post-Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) recovery programme in the affected West African countries has placed herself under a 21-day quarantine. Ms Loveness Isojick, 28, staff of Korogwe District Hospital in the eastern coastal region of Tanga, has been staying in a hotel room since her arrival from Monrovia, Liberia, on Wednesday.
Isojick feared that joining her family and shaking hands with relatives and friends could put many Tanzanians at risk of infection with the EVD, in case she carried the virus, local media have said. What a considerate woman.
After the Nigeria Football Federation has said former Borussia Dortmund midfielder, Sunday Oliseh is in line to replace Stephen Keshi, whose two-year contract as Super Eagles coach was terminated last weekend, a former technical director of the Nigeria Football Association, Kashimawo Laloko, has said Mr Oliseh lacks the experience necessary to manage the Super Eagles.
“I don’t think he has the necessary experience to be Super Eagles coach. He is educated and very organised as a player, but his success will depend on how organised he is as a coach. Managing a national team is very different from coaching a club. Besides, being a good footballer and analyst does not automatically make you a fantastic coach. But one thing I can be sure of is that he will introduce a new structure in the team; Keshi never had any structure, and that was what affected the team last year. Oliseh might have the UEFA pro licence but it is required that he has a CAF licence, that is what we have on ground as the rule,” he said.
The son of billionaire businessman, Goddy Anabor has fired back at the reports that his father is broke and now a taxi driver. According to him, his father who was reported exclusively to be broke by YES International magazine before we published it here yesterday, says he is not a taxi driver and a man does not necessarily have to be in a top position for life. He didn’t deny the report that Chief Anabor is broke but made it clear that he is not a taxi driver anyway. Here’s what he dropped for us few minutes ago.
My father is not a taxi driver and even if he is, so fucking what???? .. What is the problem with all this news papers and magazines going about promoting Negativity ???. The man lived a life in his own time it doesn't matter what comes after that, He made name, history and that is why you can still write about him today, We have President, Millionaires who are no longer in power and you don't hear a word about them, If you are saying my dad is a taxi driver he is making a living.

It has been discovered that four kids aged between 9 and 15 were part of the perpetrators of the bomb attack that rocked the city of Yola, the capital of Adamawa State on Thursday. According to them, Boko Haram insurgents instructed them to drop an explosive bag at a specific place in Bachure suburb, near the Army Barracks mainly inhabited by retired military personnel.Two of the boys who were later arrested by the police said the bag containing the explosive was too heavy for them to carry, so they had to sell it to a dustbin scavenger, whom they ran into at the nearby mechanic workshop. The dustbin scavenger who was also arrested with the children has been helping the police with more information.
A resident, Abraham Tunoh, also confirmed the claim saying the bomb which occurred on Thursday was in possession of four children.
A four storey building collapsed in the Sabo-Yaba area of Lagos yesterday afternoon at about 2:30pm. The collapse threw the area into confusion as people around the location heard a loud noise as the building came down.
The cause of the collapse is still unknown, but officials of the Lagos State Building Control Agency and other agencies have begun investigations into the incident. No casualty was recorded as construction workers at the building site were said to be on break when it collapsed.
The Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, yesterday, described as ‘unreasonable, one-sided and biased’ the Coroner’s Inquest verdict, which held that structural failure due to combination of designs and detailed errors were the cause of last year’s collapse which claimed the lives of 116 worshipers.
In a statement signed by the Church’s lawyer, Olalekan Ojo, SCOAN argued that the coroner did not take into account the evidence that the church had started processing the relevant building approval before the incident.
Former Governor of Jigawa State was shocked beyond words yesterday when a Federal High court sitting in Kano asked that the former Governor and his two sons who were accused of fraud be remanded in prison till the next court sitting which will come up on September 28 which will automatically make him spend two months and a half in prison without bail.
As the court rose, the Deputy Chief Registrar of the Federal High Court, Mr Solomon Akpedah ushered him and his two sons into a waiting van which will take them to the Kano central prison, the former Governor then exclaimed: “You mean I am now a prisoner”? The Deputy Chief Registrar who was kind, however tried to calm him down saying “No Sir, you are not a prisoner”, as they were all made to enter the van.
A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Mr. Lateef Raji, says the Director of Media and Publicity, Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode, is envious of the many achievements of the National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Raji, who is a former Special Adviser to former Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola, said this during an interview with a Punch correspondent on Thursday.
He said this while reacting to Fani-Kayode’s claim that the APC crisis showed that the North had put an end to Tinubu’s political dominance.
Hahaha Kiss Daniel is actually living by his name. While speaking to a Punch entertainment reporter, the 21-year old singer who says he got his name ’Kiss’ from his friends while in the university because of his dimples said he always knew he would get kissed by one or more girls whenever he leaves home for shows. He recounts his experience;
“On one occasion in Warri, some of the female fans got so excited to see me perform live that they literally tore my shirt to shreds. I get kissed on stage a lot. Most of the time, when I go to shows, I already know I am going to kiss a girl or more. There was this show I attended in Ibadan. A girl came up to dance with me. While we were dancing, she kissed me and I got carried away for a few moments,” he said. Bad boy
He also spoke on his gay marriage post, saying he was misquoted and will never support such. “I don’t know where people got that information. I have never supported gay marriage. Why would I do that?” he said.
President Muhammadu Buhari has turned down an offer by the Federal Government to procure five new armoured Mercedes Benz S-600 (V222) cars for his use. The cars which total cost is put at about N400m were planned to be purchased by the State House.
A Presidency source told journalists yesterday that the president got to know of the plan when the Permanent Secretary, State House, Mr. Nebolisa Emodi, was briefing him of his ministry’s activities on Wednesday. Buhari then replied him saying the purchase was unnecessary.
A source also quoted him to have said; “I don’t need any new cars. The ones I am using now are just fine.”
The world biggest snake, Anaconda has been killed and they said it took them 37 days to kill it.According to what was posted on a website with a photo of the Anaconda, explains it was found in Africa's Amazon River and has killed 257 human beings and 2325 animals. It is 134 feet long and 2067 kgs. Africa's Royal British commandos took 37 days to get it killed.
A Nigerian online has however started a debate saying it is a blatant lie and the Anaconda must have been killed in South America and not Africa. Read what he said after the cut. Btw, a lot of Nigerians agree with him with some even saying who counted the animals it killed, who counted the human beings? Lol continue…
