Ubi Franklin remembers his late father 15 years after

Ubi Franklin has taken to instagram to pen down a touching tribute to his late dad, Justice Ofem, 15 years after he waved the world goodbye.

''There is an indescribable amount of grief after losing a father. Losing a father often means losing a protector, a guiding hand, a best friend, and a superhero. But focusing on all the incredible memories you shared and the amazing man that you were can help bring light into our darker days.

This man lived well, laughed often and loved much, who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of children, who has filled his niche and accomplished his task. who leaves the world better than he found it, who has never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it, who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.
May God Rest your soul Always❤️
Love you Dad
15 Years today,'' he wrote.

Stop saying yes to everything and everyone, Dayo Amusa advices

The actress has shared an interesting advice to her followers on her instagram page. According to her, it is better to stop saying yes to everything and everyone. Her words;

''* Stop saying yes to everything and everyone. Stop agreeing with people just so you don't upset them. You are not a pushover. You were not born to be stressed & miserable so others can be relaxed & happy.

* Start protecting your time & your happiness. If others can't handle it, kick them out & don't look back. Don't ever feel bad for making a decision about your own life that upsets others. You are not responsible for their happiness but yours. Anyone who wants you to live in misery for their happiness should not be in your life to begin with. * The world owes us nothing. We are where we are because of our decisions, not because of our circumstances.

Very few men can manage successful women –Ara

Female talking drummer, Ara, is of the opinion that not all men have the capacity to handle successful women. Speaking on why many female artistes choose to be single mothers, she had said, “It is largely a personal decision for any of us who finds herself in that category. It’s deep because most female artistes tend to date and get married to their managers. Then, they later get to find out that they cannot mix business with pleasure. Your manager cannot be your husband.

However, there are some exceptional cases, such as Azeezat and Seyi Allen. When I talk to my colleagues, I realize that we still want to be loved and married. I personally believe in the marriage institution, and most of my colleagues that I interact with are of the same opinion. But nobody wants to stay in a bad relationship.

Very few men can manage a successful woman. It takes a self-confident and God-fearing man to be with a popular and successful woman. And this is not just about entertainment; it also applies to women who are successful in other fields. It is a major issue, trust me.”

Nigeria's p*rn queen makes u-turn, says p*rn couldn't give me money and fame as she begs Nigerians for forgiveness

Savage Trap Queen in a chat with Saturday Beats shocked many when she said she has quit acting p*rn. Remember she had boasted about making between N80,000 to N100,000 per role when she features as a p*rn star?

But now she said it's all over and she has embraced a new life. Speaking to Saturday Beats she said,

“I was cheated and assaulted as a p*rn star. I was disrespected, and I wasn’t even paid completely. I don’t think anyone should go into it. I decided to quit when I looked at my life and caution myself. I didn’t know what I was doing. When I was into p*rn, people assumed I was making a lot of money. However, p*rn companies make more money than p*rn stars; they only give them a token. I said to myself that wasn’t the kind of life I wanted to live. I know the society I live in doesn’t accept such immorality. I won’t advise any young Nigerian to venture into it because whether you like it or not, whatever action you take has consequences, either good or bad”.
