Anyway, this morning Amber tried to defend herself (don't know why she would even bother) by sharing the raw untouched photo of this pic she shared two days ago (left is the raw version) claiming it wasn't Photoshopped and blamed paparazzi for taking bad angled unflattering pics of her.

Life-proven secrets of success

Regardless of your age, religion or colour, we all share something in common—a desire to be successful. Each person’s definition of success is different, however, as some may define success as being a loving and faithful spouse or a caring and responsible parent, while most people would equate success with wealth, fame, and power.

We all want to achieve success so we could live a comfortable life - have financial freedom, drive a nice car, and live in a beautiful house. However, although success can be achieved, it does not come easy.

Singer Peter Okoye says getting married to Lola, his wife and mother of his two children has made him a more responsible man. He says marriage has changed his perception as an individual but has not changed him as a member of P-Square...

In a nutshell, I will say marriage has changed me as Peter Okoye but not as Psquare" he told Vanguard.

Amongst others, passed through the tunnels of the minds of Nigerian citizens. It didn’t help that information about the disease was relatively miscommunicated leading everyone to walk around in fear.
