Wande Coal denies leaving Mavin Records

Wande Coal says the report that he is leaving Mavin Records, with Don Jazzy's blessings, to start his own record label called Black Diamonds, is 100% false. He released a statement via Mavin Records' website yesterday. See it below...
Award-winning singer/songwriter, Wande Coal, of Mavin Records has announced in a press statement that he has no plans to set up his own record label. The Mavin artist has emphatically denied online reports, stating that he that he wished to set up his own music label. The RnB star reaffirmed his commitment to Don Jazzy’s label and insisted that Mavin provided an enabling environment for him to realize all his ambitions as an artist.
In the press statement Wande Coal expressed his anger at the rumours being peddled that he is dissatisfied with the operations of Mavin Records. He equally stated that he and Don Jazzy had never once discussed the possibility of setting up a new label. He added that it was quite unfortunate that reputable entertainment magazines were sharing unconfirmed news.

During their date, she excused herself and went to the rest room, that was when the man drugged the red bull she was drinking.
The girl only remembers being drowsy and someone dragging her to the car and that was how the man molested her.
She only came back to her senses when good samaritans found her in Umoja 2, Kenya in a very bad state.

Nana, 21-year-old Nigerian, Emerges University Of Kent’s Most Outstanding Graduating student.- Congrats dear at least you've made Naija proud unlike those who goes out their to fumble

A 21-year-old Nigerian foreign student, Nana Skari, recently emerged the most outstanding graduating student of University of Kent in the United Kingdom.
She graduated with a first class Bachelor of Engineering degree at the institution’s Department of Computer Systems Engineering at the Kent’s University.
Taking a look at the school’s profile, the University of Kent founded in 1965, is best known for its world-class research, excellent teaching and an inspiring student experience with international links across nations.
The university is also frequently ranked among the top 30 in British universities. So, with this kind of background, one can imagine how proud it is for Nana, a Nigerian, to study engineering at this prestigious university and graduate with a first class degree.
Even, apart from being the overall best student, Nana also won a separate outstanding award in engineering.
What makes her award unique is the fact that it was given to her by the country’s Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET), a national body in charge of accreditation of all engineering,
computing, multimedia, and information technology programmes at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels in the UK.
Born in Borno State, Nana at an initial stage of her education, had thought of studying paediatric neurosurgery.
Why she couldn’t go for pediatric neurosurgery was not because she didn’t meet up with the basic requirement qualifying her for admission into the course, it was because she preferred to study a course she said she has a natural flair for. In her words, she said: “A course I enjoy doing.”

Unguarded Movie Premiere: Uche Jombo-Rodriguez, Ramsey Nouah, Desmond Elliot, Emem Isong All In New York City

Cast of Unguarded
On Saturday, Nov. 3rd well known Nigerian Actress Uche Jombo-Rodriguez was in New York City to attend the premiere of the movie, UNGUARDED. The premiere was held at the Gold Ballroom of Hotel Pennsylvania located in midtown, Manhattan.
Other Nollywood favorites and cast members in attendance include Ramsey Nouah, Desmond Elliot, and Esosa Edosonmwan. Who were supported by fellow acting colleagues Emem Isong and Monalisa Chinda.
The premiere kicked off at about 8.30pm with a full-house of fans in attendance to enjoy what the producers had promised would be the best movie of the year; which based on the resounding applause and reviews when the curtains came down about two hours later was sure proof that the fans were not disappointed. UNGUARDED is a story about a man (played by Ramsey Nouah) who fell deeply in love with a girl (Esosa Edosonmwan), and was ready to take the next step only to find out that she had other plans which definitely didn’t include him. She leaves him devastated and damaged; and his actions here on out are unforgivable until he meets someone special (played Uche Jombo).
Fans were very impressed not just with the storyline, but the overall production of the movie. From the stellar performance and delivery of the cast, to the directing and film-editing, and even the music composition everything was well executed which together brought about a great movie. UNGUARDED is produced by Chisom Oz-lee/Best Icon Productions and directed by Desmond Elliot.

Born on Election Day! Kenyan Woman Names New Born Twins “Barack & Mitt”

It is no news that Kenyans really love the US President, Barack Obama; after all he is a son of the soil. But can we say that they love Mitt Romney just as much? Just maybe.

A Kenyan woman who gave birth on the day of the United States of America’s Presidential Elections has named her new-born twin boys Barack and Mitt. Millicent Owuor, 20, gave birth to the twins in south-west Kenya on the 6th of November, 2012 and named them after the US President Barack Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
BBC reports that a short distance from the hospital, at the Obama family’s ancestral village of Kogelo, people were celebrating his victory. The new mother said she named the first twin Barack and the second one Mitt after the winning and losing US presidential candidates in order to remember the day of the vote. For her, she would never forget the day of the US elections.
Mr. Obama’s father was born in Kenya and his step-grandmother, Sarah Obama, still lives in the village of Kogelo.
Barack Obama senior died in a road accident in Kenya in 1982.

Okada ban: “Fashola should re-brand, license and restrict them” – Dr. Oladele

The Lagos State Government is working on a number of options to engage genuine commercial motorcycle operators, recently thrown out of jobs as a result of the implementation of the new traffic law, in meaningful ventures.

The Commissioner for Transportation, Mr. Kayode Opeifa, dropped the hint in Lagos on Wednesday, stressing that the move was meant to give only the registered operators a new lease of life.
Many of the okada riders, as the commercial motorcycle operators are called, have had to abandon the business, as the new law prohibits them from plying major roads and bridges in the state. According to the new traffic law, only those with 200cc engine capacity can operate in the permitted areas.

True Confession: How can I stop having sex with my brother-in-law?

I think I have had it enough, and it’s even becoming more habitual as I always have a fast one with him even when my husband is in the house. My fear is that my husband will soon understand the gimmicks, if we continue in the escapade.

I’m very sorry to say this, but I think I’m an addict, as I get to my pick when I cheat on my husband. I also enjoy it more when it’s done swiftly; just that alone satisfies my libido. However, the reason why I’m so attached to this guy is because he is a complete man. No man can do what he does to me; in fact, it’s unspeakable.
When I met my husband 10 years ago, I knew he was my kind of man, as he was able to satisfy me the very night we met. We both met in one of the universities in the North. We got married just 3 years ago and here I’m trying to battle out of some addiction. I know it’s shameful, but it’s really hard for me to fight.
