Naija News

The Under 17 Golden Eaglets who won the FIFA U-17 world cup have all been awarded with 'The Member of the Order of the Niger' M.O.N, by our dear president, while the officials got Member of the Federal Republic, MFR...a well deserved honor!

God forgive me for telling this story...but here goes...some guy in the US by the name Philip is accusing Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike, of sleeping with his wife, one Ruth Okoro...he said Emeka has been sleeping with his wife for over two years..they always got together whenever Emeka came to the US. Hmmm, according to dirty gossip, Emeka was caught in a hotel with the married woman at midnight by the woman's husband. The police had to be invited, other Nollywood actors witnessed the incident in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. It's such a long, messy scandal but y'all need to know Emeka denied being intimate with the woman, saying they were family friends, but another famous actor corroborated the man's accusations, saying Emeka and Ruth had been spending the night together through out the shoot of the movie...So many people were involved, so many things went on...but let's stop here b4 someone serves me...lol

House of Tara nominated
Tara Fela Durotoye, a pioneer make up artist would soon be cgetting another accolade as she has been shortlisted for the Africa SME Awards in Johannesburg, SA. The house of Tara was the only SME company nominated from Nigeria in that category. Kudos to her!

The proceedings of the nine-man investigative panel probing the award of N628million contract to renovate the residences of the Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives ended abruptly on Thursday as lawmakers exchanged blows. It was embarrassing to watch. for more details, go to sunnewsonline.com
