No Crime In Having More Children - 9ice

Some weeks ago, rumour had it that popular singer, 9ice, was expecting his fifth child from another baby mama. When the news was circulated online, many online commentators began to call him ‘Father Abraham’, which simply connotes a man with many children.

In a WhatsApp chat with the singer, he denied the report but told Saturday Beats that there was no crime in having more children.

9ice said, “The reports are not true that I am expecting my fifth child from another woman. I have no idea where the report came from, but the truth is that in Nigeria, especially in Yorubaland, there is an adage that says that you don’t count a man’s children for him.

“To have more children is not a crime, but the sad thing is that people would believe what they want to believe. I am currently in the studio working on new songs and I am also promoting my new song, ‘Ebami’, but no one would write about that. All they know is to peddle false news about me.”

Is This The World's Oldest Model? She Could BE..

Daphne Selfe has just landed a campaign with beauty brand Eyeko, making her the world's oldest supermodel at the age of 89.

The London-born beauty has been modelling since 1949 and isn't showing any signs of stopping. She's even been featured in a new video to promote Eyeko's latest Bespoke Mascara launch.

The short video, which was uploaded to the brand's Instagram page a few days ago, shows Daphne delicately applying mascara to her upper and lower lashes. She even gives viewers a cheeky wink at the end, proving she's a natural in front of the camera.

It's no wonder this inspiring model has been picked as the face of the campaign - she's a prime example of beauty having no age limit. And, it seems there's no limit to Daphne's talents either, as she's racked up an impressive number of fashion and beauty campaigns in recent years - including ones for Marks & Spencer and Selfridges' Project Ocean initiative.

No, take a chill! Don't let your hearts come out of your mouths, except you don't know Kemi, then please feel free, let your heart out, lol. So Aunty Kemi has taken to IG to say people of Ibadan do not appreciate her and at the same time she called her dad evil and prays God help him. She then reversed her decision of contesting for the governorship seat of Oyo State and said the only thing she would be interested in, is to become a minister and she has actually been waiting for that appointment. Just while waiting to be a minister she also said, the only thing she wants to do for the rest of her life is to be a woman of God and she would be during that at Salvation Ministries; the church headed by the man of God who is believed to have jailed her.

Lol, I won't mention that name, but New Yorker (a blog fan) already named her. He disclosed what could be affecting Aunty Kemi. But really, is it that nobody can help her? Not even Oyo State government? And before people say is she a government property? My sister/brother she is o. Any citizen is a government property, especially one trying so much to be heard. When she gets the help needed, even the state will feel sanity. Really feel sad about all of this, sigh! What aunty Kemi wrote after the cut...

Issa New One! Scientists Clone Monkeys

Chinese scientists have cloned monkeys using the same technique that produced Dolly the sheep two decades ago, breaking a technical barrier that could open the door to copying humans.

Zhong Zhong and Hua Hua, two identical long-tailed macaques, were born eight and six weeks ago, making them the first primates -- the order of mammals that includes monkeys, apes and humans -- to be cloned from a non-embryonic cell.

It was achieved through a process called somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT), which involves transferring the nucleus of a cell, which includes its DNA, into an egg which has had its nucleus removed.

Researchers at the Chinese Academy of Sciences Institute of Neuroscience in Shanghai said their work should be a boon to medical research by making it possible to study diseases in populations of genetically uniform monkeys.

“Fighting with David was my biggest battle ever. It was bigger than fighting Abacha because of the blistering popularity of David; he is an extremely popular guy and it was very unfortunate, (the devil is a liar) because a baby was involved; very beautiful girl, Imade.

“When it happened, I tried my best to avoid a collision with the family because I am very close to the family especially because of Senator Ademola Adeleke. We used to sleep in the same house when I was in exile in London. Whenever Sen. Ademola was around, he would call me and then pick me up to his house and I’ll sleep there and when I need to go back to my own house he would drop me.

“So when the baby issue came, I didn’t know about it, if Sophie (Davido’s first Babymama) didn’t tell me she was pregnant, I wouldn’t have known, she was able to hide it perfectly from everyone.”
