Between Liz Garvy and Dencia

Dencia                                       Liz Garvy
This is kinda like stale news...it happened like two weeks ago, but just in case you missed it...then enjoy...:-)

So Liz Garvy, a well known fashion entrepreneur with a few boutiques in Lagos, got into a nasty girl fight with former friend, upcoming Cameroonian singer and us-based video model, Dencia, at the bathroom of the Eko Hotel, venue of the Headies Award which held last month. The physical altercation which saw Dencia almost stripped naked was the outcome of a friendship gone sour. 

Basically what happened was that Dencia went around telling people that Liz stole $20, 000 from her when she visited her house in the US last year. Liz was furious about the allegations and was waiting for a confrontation. They met at the Headies Award and all hell broke loose.

A few days after the fight, Liz Garvy released her version of what happened between them. Read it after the cut...

Baba Suwe Drug Mess: Mosun Filani Denied UK Visa

The Yoruba film actress and producer was denied UK visa last week following what insiders say have a lot to do with the arrest of one of her colleagues, Baba Suwe, over dug trafficking allegations. The British Embassy followed the Baba Suwe drug mess saga keenly and wanted to see the outcome before giving out visas.

Hope this doesn't become a trend, where everyone else pays for one person's mistake.

Should two celebrities do this?

Is it OK for two celebrities who are not romantically involved to go to a very public function holding hands? I hear these two, Banky W and Tinsel actress Damilola Adegbite aren't dating but they went to the Ice Prince Album Launch together holding hands...like a couple in love. The press had a field day speculating that they are dating...when they are not...but then can you blame the press?

So I want to know your opinion on this. Should two celebs who are not dating be very affectionate in public? I don't think it's a big deal, It's something I can do without any hesitation but some people think it's not proper. What do you think?

Amber Rose reveals plans to begin a music career

In a recent interview Amber Rose reveals plans to begin a music career. She tells BET
"I’m in the studio every single day no matter if I work 18 hours a day, I’m always in the studio so I’m really taking this very serious. I’ve always wrote music, but it has always been something very personal for me. But I brought my music to Wiz one day and showed him everything and he was blown away. He was like, ‘Baby, you have to do this. Like, you have to. I know you’re quiet, I know you’re shy’ but you know when I’m in the studio, I’m like Sasha fierce. I just turn into a whole different person. It’s really cool. You guys are going to really enjoy it. I may drop a song soon and just put it out there so you can see what it’s like."
Amber fierce, oya now, we dey wait!

The top Yoruba actor has been missing in action for a while now in the movie industry. Close friends to the actor say he's decided to take a break from the profession that brought him fame and concentrate on other things because he no longer finds fulfillment in acting...and the profession also wasn't particularly financially rewarding for him. But acting is his first passion so he'll definitely be back.

Nigerian Nurse's Licence Withdrawn In UK For Calling on Jesus For Help

A 51 year old Nigerian-born UK resident nurse, Omolayo Abayomi, has had her Nurse's licence withdrawn by the UK Nursing and Midwifery Council for throwing her hands into the air and begging for Jesus to help, as a baby she was supposed to be taking care of suffered a heart attack.
According to Daily Mail UK, Omolayo Abayomi 'panicked' when the child, who suffered from a chronic lung disease, turned blue and stopped breathing in his cot at home. The nurse called for divine intervention more than 20 times before the vulnerable boy's mother told her to 'shut up'.
The nurse was constantly saying "Jesus help him" and waving her arms around,' a hearing was told.
What is wrong with these oyibo people...don't they know in Nigeria, we can't do anything without calling the name of Jesus?...:-). Continue reading...
