Obafemi martins buys Benz Jeep

Footballer, Obafemi Martins who people is gradually becoming a car freak, just acquired a Mercedes Benz jeep. People who have seen the wonder on wheel say it's the latest edition of the Benz jeep...being a footballer really pays.

Gloria Ibru takes over Nasir Ado Ibrahim's Club Towers

Anthentic gists have it that billionaire Olorogun Michael Ibru's daughter and the mother of Sammy Okposo's first daughter, Gloria Ibru, has taken over Club Towers, formerly owned by Prince Nasir Ado Ibrahim. We are all waiting to see what she'll do with the place. Renovations are currently taking place there. And news reaching me say there will be a grand opening of the place in July...the new name is still unknown.

Keem Belo-Osagie, Adrian Wood float new GSM company

Former United Bank for Africa (UBA) chairman, Hakeem Belo-Osagie and former CEO of MTN in Nigerian, Australian Adrian Wood, are said to be working on floating a GSM company in Nigeria. Reports say the recently licensed GSM operator MUBADALA, which is reportedly owned by the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dabri, won the license because of the role played by Belo-Osagie and Adrian Wood who is being touted as the CEO of the new company. I know for sure that Nigeria needs more GSM companies, the higher the competition, the cheaper the prices...Let's wait and see.

Ex-Super Eagles footballer, Godwin Okpara jailed 13 years in France
Former Super Eagles defender, Godwin Okpara was on Friday June 1st sentenced to 13 years in prison by a French court for raping his adopted daughter, Tina.
His wife Linda, also received 15 years for her connivance and torture of the victim while Linda's mother bagged 5 years for failing to come to the aid of the young Tina.
The 34 year footballer who once played for PSG denied raping the girl, claiming that the sex with his adopted daughter was mutual.

Tina accused her adopted father of raping her consistently since she left Nigeria and joined the couple in France at the age of 13 in 2001. She said she was forced into sex with Godwin and was subjected to battery whenever she declined.
Other sources claim that Linda shaved Tina's head, stubbed a cigarette on her cheek and forced her to perform cruel sexual acts.
Their defence lawyer said there is a likelihood of an appeal.

I don't know the whole story, but all I'll say is this. May God reward Godwin Okpara for having consensual sex with a 13 year old.

Fola Adeola buys AIB building for N1 billion
It's being reported that former MD/CEO of Guaranty Trust Bank, Fola Adeola is the new owner of the defunct Africa International Bank (AIB) building. And there are claims that he bought the edifice for N1 billion. The building is sitauted on Akin Adesola Street, Victoria Island, Lagos. The property is said to have been sold to Fola by the Nigerian Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC). He is said to have bought the building to shelter all his business concerns...good for him!

Also producer/actress Rosemary Ingbi wed her longtime partner and father of children, Peter Onaniwu, last week at Ikoyi Registry.
Sundey Oliseh's younger brother also got married to his sweetheart, Egutu Tselika on June 2nd 2007 at the chapel of light church.
Congrats to the newly married couples.
Ok that's all I can dish out for now, got to get back to business. I'll give you more gists later. Enjoy!

Hey linda,came across your blog for the first time and I just wanted to let you know its really awesome! You are doing a great job. I particularly like the way you blog about anything and everything. I'm in the U.S and for someone that has being away from nija for a make me feel like i'm up to date on the happenings in nija. If your magazine can be as interesting and as diverse as your blog, I think you will definitely create a niche for yourself. Keep up the good work...oh and p.s please take good care of HIM. I know love can be risky, but the best way is to love HIM and trust GOD.
