News + Jokes + Weirdest Accidents

I'll be taking a break from blogging soon. A short a week or two. I'm taking a holiday. Just thought to give you guys some notice.

Meanwhile, lets keep the fun going.


Kanye looses mum

The mother of Kanye West may have died of complications related to a surgical procedure, a coroner's official said Monday.
Preliminary information from officials at Centinela Freeman Regional Medical Center, where Donda West died Saturday, indicated she died from "complications of surgery,"
A plastic surgeon who claimed to have operated on Kanye West's mother before she died said he did nothing wrong, and that her death could have been caused by other medical problems.
Dr. Jan Adams said he performed a tummy tuck and breast reduction on Donda West, but that she might have died from a heart attack, pulmonary embolism, or massive vomiting.

Adams said West consulted with him over a period of four months, often changing her mind about the surgery.

A plastic surgeon, Dr. Andre Aboolian of Beverly Hills, said Monday that West had approached him months ago about having cosmetic surgery. He said he never performed the procedure, telling her he was worried about a pre-existing condition she had.
Aboolian told West two weeks ago that she needed to get a medical clearance before he would agree to do the surgery, said his publicist, Jo-Ann Geffen.

West, who died at age 58, on Saturday night at Centinela Freeman Regional Medical Center in Marina del Rey, was known for the strong bond she shared with her hip-hop star son. She was often seen by his side at parties and award shows, and he often spoke of his close relationship with his mother, who raised him alone after her husband left when Kanye was 3

May her soul rest in peace.

California: 5 Dead in Shooting at House
A shooting at a house on a suburban San Diego cul-de-sac left five people dead in what the authorities said could be a murder-suicide. Police officers responding to a report of shots fired on Sunday found two men and two women dead at the house in Temecula, said Sgt. Dennis Gutierrez of the Riverside County sheriff’s department. A fifth victim, a woman, died at a hospital, he said. Sergeant Gutierrez said neighbors told investigators that all five people lived at the house. The victims’ identities were not released, but all were thought to be related, he said.

Michigan: Teenagers Charged in Dismemberment
Two teenagers stabbed an adult acquaintance, took a blowtorch to his corpse and threw his severed head into a river, prosecutors said. The teenagers, Jean Pierre Orlewicz, 17, and Alexander James Letkemann, 18, ambushed 26-year-old Daniel Sorenson last Wednesday in a garage owned by Mr. Orlewicz’s grandfather, said Kym Worthy, the Wayne County prosecutor. “They prepared a space to kill him,” Ms. Worthy said at a news conference. Mr. Sorenson’s head was found Saturday in the Rouge River on the border of Detroit and Dearborn Heights, about 15 miles from where his torso was found. Not guilty pleas were entered on the teenagers’ behalf, and both were ordered held without bail.


The website – covers just about everything from clothing to accessories, fabrics, bridals, make up hair and body treatment etc. It's even got a database for advertising models for events/ shows.

The site is free for viewing but designers and models usually pay to get on board. However, there's a promo going on for the next one or two months and he's taking on board everyone in the industry. You'll see the designs of top Nigerian designers such as Lanre DaSilva Ajayi, Zizi Cardow and Ishy Couture. Others are Gems of Nubia, House of Tara, Dornan & Josfyn and a host of others. Some of my models should be on board very soon also.

Please visit the site at and share your thoughts and comments about the site. You could also send comments to He's also working on a styling blog that will be announced pretty soon so watch out for it. I think it's a laudable undeniably Nigerian initiative. Check it out.

Eddie Montana and Sammie Needle
Local gossip has it that business partners Sammy Needle and Eddy Montana have quarrelled and parted ways. This speculation was based on recent moves by Eddie to single handedly launch the fruit of the union - a nine track album which production was funded by Sammy's company SNRC Entertainment.

One of those days
As I was going down the stairs to the kitchen, I tripped and hit my head on the door frame.
My wife tried to soothe my pain and poured me a cup of coffee. It was so hot, it scalded my tongue.

I sat down at the breakfast table and put a couple of slices of bread in the toaster. When I went to take them out, I got an electric shock that made my arse quiver..........

At that moment the phone rang. It was the office to tell me we had been broken into during the night, and all the computers plus various important documents had been nicked.

I was so upset by the news that I spilled my coffee all over my lap. As a result I had to go back upstairs, wash and put on clean clothes. I decided that a cold shower would calm me down and help me regain my composure.
That proved to be the final straw.......

No shopping?!?!?! A fate worse than death!
And here's the proof!

Giving up Wine I was walking down the street when I was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless woman who asked me for a couple of dollars for dinner. I took out my wallet, got out ten dollars and asked, "If I give you this money, will you buy wine with it instead of dinner?" "No, I had to stop drinking years ago", the homeless woman told me. "Will you use it to go shopping instead of buying food?" I asked. "No, I don't waste time shopping," the homeless woman said. "I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive." "Will you spend this on a beauty salon instead of food?" I asked. "Are you NUTS !" replied the homeless woman. " I haven't had my hair done in 20 years!" "Well," I said, "I'm not going to give you the money. Instead, I'm going to take you out for dinner with my husband and me tonight." The homeless Woman was shocked. "Won't your husband be furious with you for doing that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting." I said, "That's okay. It's important for him to see what a woman looks like after she has given up shopping, hair appointments, and wine."

ok prob not, forgot it has to be approved :(
RIP Dr Donda West, Kanye I can imagine is shattered, she was literally his world, and he let the whole world know that. Heard her on TV and she struck me as such an amazing mother, and the strong foundation that any celeb needs. I see him going into hiding for a while and coming out with 3 more grammy winning double platinum albums just from this event alone.
