Females Now Changing Their Names To A Man's Name To Get A Job!

Bias against feminine and ethnic names is alive and well in the corporate workplace.

When Erin McKelvey applied for a job in the tech industry after finishing college in the mid-1990s, she got zero response. So she consulted a friend, who offered some advice.

The friend had run into the same issue and had decided to shorten her name, Alexandra, to the more gender-neutral “Alex” on her resume. “Alex” received a much better response from prospective employers and the move ultimately led to a job at a global insurance holding company.

Inspired by her friend’s experience, McKelvey came up with a nickname for herself—Mack, a shortened version of her last name—and used it as her first name on her resume.

We Voted For A President But We Now Have An Evangelist - Apostle Suleman

Apostle Johnson Suleman, the founder of Omega Fire Ministries, has decried the rate at which president Muhammadu Buhari travels. The preacher likened the president's junketing nature to that of an evangelist who moves from one place to the other.

Speaking during the conference, he said Nigerians were tired of the calls for patience by the president. “People are suffering and you said they should be patient. It is not fair. We voted for a president but we now have an evangelist.

I Can Never Bleach My Skin, Wear A Bikini & I Regret Having A Tattoo- Kemi Afolabi

Actress Kemi Afolabi who was recently in the news for having a fight with Shebaby says one thing she regrets in her life is having a tattoo. According to Kemi, she got the tattoo when she was in UNILAG and it is because she was naïve back then. She also spoke about toning her skin and emphasized that she has never bleached before in her life.

It seems you have a tattoo?

Yes I do.

Do you have plans of getting more?

No, that was youthful exuberance. I got the tattoo before I became an actress. When I was in UNILAG, there was a woman who owned a boutique in school and she wanted me to be the face of the boutique. We were taking pictures when a guy that had a tattoo shop there told me that if I had a tiny tattoo somewhere on my body, it would fit me especially if I wore a spaghetti top. That was when I did it and I regret it now.

Our Signees, Marriages Slowed Us Down - Artquake

The duo of Adex and Ice K which makes up the group Artquake have explained why little or nothing have been heard from them in a while. According to them, they got married and marriage slowed them down coupled with four new acts they signed which also slowed them down in a way. While speaking with Saturday Beats, the duo said;

“When we released ‘Alanta,’ we slowed down because of marriage but that is natural. We also thought of diversifying and see what we could do apart from music to make money. That was what made us slow down but we did some music afterwards. We met our wives before we released ‘Alanta’ and they have been enduring with us before that song, so that made it a lot easier. If they were ladies that we met after ‘Alanta,’ we can’t tell what would have become of the marriage now because it would have been obvious that they came for the fame. These two ladies are people who have been with us before the mega hit and the big money. I remember there was a time we used to live in a self-contained apartment in Surulere and these ladies used to come around. They believed in us and did not forsake us.”

It’s Been Very Difficult For Me Without A Man Around Me- Uche Ogbodo

After her failed marriage to her baby daddy which barely lasted a month, actress Uche Ogbodo has said it’s been difficult for her emotionally without a man. She says she sometimes needs the comfort of a man and someone she can trust, but sadly, there is none of that for her. She said her last relationship has hurt her so bad that she doubts she can ever give marriage a shot again. She said this and more to Saturday Beats. Read…

“Sometimes it gets lonely because there is nobody to talk to. Not that there are no men but because of all the hurts and disappointment I have been through, it is not easy trusting again. Like I say to some of my friends, it is no longer as easy as it used to be for me to trust a man again. Dating is easy but being in a proper relationship is very difficult. Once beaten, twice shy. It is so hard for me to trust someone, to know if he is coming for good and he is not going to betray my trust and hurt me. It is hard that I don’t have a friend even though there are so many men out there. Continue....

Supreme Court of Canada Legalizes Sex With Animals

Canada’s highest court has just ruled that some sex acts between humans and animals are legal.
