I Am Not A Gigolo, I Just Prefer Older Women- Aremu Afolayan

Aremu Afolayan, the younger brother of renowned film maker, Kunle Afolayan, who has been branded a gigolo has told Yes Magazine why a lot of people refer to him as that and why he won’t still do younger women. Aremu says, he can’t imagine making love to his younger girlfriend, and the next thing she goes to sleep with a yahoo boy or his dad’s friend just because she needs money, hence he fancies his older women. He said;

“They said I’m a gigolo right? I owe no one any explanation for the way I live my life. They can criticize my film, but not my life. They said I do rich women for money, how I wish I can do that because a gigolo don’t get broke like this. If I’m a gigolo I will never sell my properties to do a film of N16 million. I sold three of my cars to raise the money. I am not what people think I am.

I love ladies that are older than me. It’s my business because I don’t find the good thing, the real love and happiness from the young chaps," he said.

Freeze Tells Tiwa, Your Interview About TeeBillz Could Make Him More Suicidal

Daddy Freeze for the second time has written another open letter, this time it is not to the Baloguns, neither is it to Nigerians to pray for the couple, but to Tiwa Savage, the lady in the middle of all this. Here’s what Freeze wrote to her;

Dear Tiwa,

I have nothing but love for you, but after I watched all 45 mins or so of your interview, I am a bit disappointed.

Tiwa, I know it hurts when a relationship breaks down, and those accusations T Billz made were extremely hurtful, nonetheless, I believe you could have employed caution when responding, since according to you, he was unstable and suicidal. In law, if for instance, you walk in on your man in bed with another woman and you shoot him on the spot, you could get a lighter sentence, if your legal counsel argues provocation. On the flip side, if you walk out of the scene to get a gun and then launch an attack, it's now considered premeditated. Continue...

Tiwa Is A Classic Case Of Girls Falling For Bad Guys...Thinking They Could Change Them - Charles Novia

I watched the video interview of Tiwa Savage. And I have a few thoughts on it.

Seems to me that the basic idea, coming from a PR perspective, was to pull a fast Olivia Pope ish on the scandal which broke a few hours ago. And  understandably so. Tiwa Savage is a Brand Ambassador for a few top brands such as MTN, Pepsi and Pampers.

Whatever the negative fallout of this impending and scandalous divorce , it’s going to have some downside a bit on the brands she campaigns for. So a fast ‘tell-my-side-of-the-story mode’ had to be employed and fast too.

I don’ t know if a professional PR person was involved with the packaging but it was tacky. Not professionally done, in my opinion. I’m not harping on what she said, as those things are her personal heart cry and she has a right of reply but I’m more interested in the optics of what has been put out. Continue....

Fanatic Trump Supporter Arrested With Bombs After Threatening To Kill Obama

A fanatical Donald Trump supporter, who was arrested by the FBI in Oregon this week after repeatedly threatening to kill President Barack Obama and federal agents, had multiple pipe bombs in his home, authorities alleged in court on Friday.

John Martin Roos, a 61-year-old from Oregon, has been charged with communication of a threat in interstate commerce, and additional charges are likely forthcoming. Roos first came onto the federal government’s radar after a “concerned citizen” brought Roos’ Facebook and Twitter postings to the FBI’s attention in February, according to an affidavit from Special Agent Jeffrey Gray.

In one Jan. 31 Facebook post cited by the FBI, Roos referred to agents as “pussies” and wrote he would “snipe them with hunting rifles everywhere.”

In a post in November that was also cited by the FBI, Roos spoke out against accepting refugees and threatened to kill Obama.

People With Albinism In Malawi Face 'Total Extinction' - UN

Malawi's estimated 10,000 albinos face "extinction" if they continue to be murdered for their body parts for use in witchcraft, a UN expert has warned. Ikponwosa Ero said that the situation "constitutes an emergency, a crisis disturbing in its proportions".

Albinos were targeted because of beliefs that their body parts "can increase wealth, make businesses prosper or facilitate employment", said Ms Ero, the UN human rights council's expert on albinism.

"Even in death, they do not rest in peace as their remains are robbed from graveyards," Ms Ero, an albino herself added.
