New set of dancers are set to emerge in the Nigerian entertainment industry, as KOGA ENTERTAINMENT presents ‘DANCE 234’, a dance reality show likened to no other for young people looking to pave their ways into history by dancing for a cause and of course for fame.

What do you guys think of adult twins dressing identical all the time?

I understand twins dressing identical...but when it's all the time, then it's no longer cute. My sister's neighbours drive me nuts. Every time I go visit her and I see them, I want to pull the weave on head till I bleed. I've never seen anything like it...everything they wear is identical, from the clothes, to the slippers to ear rings, watch, wrist band, to the colour of weave and hair style, and I'm sure their under wear. How do we tell you guys apart if you beaches keeping wearing exact same stuff? Even identical twins need their own identity...whaharell? As children and teens and even young adults...it's cute. But as grown ass 30-something year olds? You guys are pissing me off.!!!

I'm complaining so much because one of them told my sister that I don't greet her whenever I see her. Beach, how am I supposed to greet you again when I just greeted you about 30 minutes ago? Oh, that was your sister? How was I supposed to know that? Y'all look same to me. But see, if you insist on dressing identical all the time, how about one of you fall, hit your head on the ground, and have a visible permanent scar, so we common people can tell you guys apart? And then I can greet you every time I see you, how about that?
LOL, just messing around. True story tho

So, what's your take on identical twins in identical clothing?

What is wrong with this picture?

That's our BBA rep Karen Igho. Do you guys see what I think I am seeing or is my eyes deceiving me? It's same colour with her weave..*Cough*

Lady Gaga dresses as Mary Magdalene and takes a bike ride with Jesus Christ in 'blasphemous' new video for Judas single

Gaga plays a modern day Mary Magdelene, who rides with Christ on the back of a motorcycle
The song's lyrics include: 'Jesus is my virtue, and Judas is the demon I cling to… I’m just a holy fool, oh baby he’s so cruel, but I’m still in love with Judas, baby.'
It has not gone down well with critics all over the world.

Gaga defended the video to E! sayings - "I don't view the video as a religious statement, I view it as social statement. I view it as a cultural statement. It's a metaphor. It's not meant to be a biblical lesson."
The video after the cut...

Mass Exodus Hit Latter Rain Church Over Pastor Bakare's Failed Political Ambition

Pastor Bakare and General Buhari
According to City People Magazine, there is a great unrest in pastor Tunde Bakare's Latter Rain Church as many members have deserted the church saying they can no longer follow the doctrine of a man who joined forces with a man (General Buhari) perceived by many, even Northerners, as an Islamic fundamentalist, who told his northern follows never to vote for anyone who was not a Muslim.

Pastor Bakare in the perspective of some of his congregation may have flouted the biblical injunction which says 'Do not be unequally yoked to an unbeliever'.

Also according to one member of his church, he clearly went against a declaration he made in 2006 in a popular Nigerian Daily where he declared this "Let me tell you the truth by the spirit of God, neither Obasanjo, Atiku, IBB, Buhari, are part of the new. They are part of the old that is decaying. That old is passing away. The new is emerging and these ones are not part of the new."

So it irked some of his members that he could eat his words and join forces with the 'old'. They say despite his ability to hear God's voice, he still took the plunge and latched unto a man that had been divinely rejected by God, making it daunting that the pastor got a revelation from God and then blatantly acted against it.

Do they have a point?

Jay Z addresses those Illuminati rumors in the current issue of Sky Magazine

Jay Z tells Sky

I may sound a little arrogant but I just think people can’t handle when somebody is successful. Something has gotta be wrong; you gotta be down with some higher power. And I guess when someone else is successful; it makes you feel like maybe you’re a failure. So it can’t be you, it has to be some other force.

The Nokia E7 smartphone winner is...Folarin Michael O

I promise you, there's absolutely no ojoro in this at all. I have absolutely no idea who this guy is, and nobody at the Nokia office (who picked the winner) know him. They picked him based on the answer he gave. They shortlisted down to three and felt his answer was the most creative. Below is what he wrote...

Folarin Michael O. said...
I'm an IT technician. One of the most creative things I did with my Nokia N97 mini was when I downloaded an antivirus update from avast! and transferred the file through b/tooth to an infected system at one of my client's offices at Ago-Iwoye in Ogun state.

After cleaning the system of all viruses, I used my N97's 8gb internal memory as a removable drive and did a back-up of my client's computer.

My Nokia N97 mini made my day and saved my client's valuable data! And this is apart from Ovi maps saving me from getting lost on more than one occassion in remote places in Lagos!

Folarin, if you are reading this, big congrats. This is a gadget to own. To collect your phone, please be at the official launch of the E7 phone tomorrow May 6, 2011, at 4Point By Sheraton, Lekki, with proof of identification.

We don't have your contact so we can't email or call you, but you can email me at lindaikeji@gmail.com. If you know who he is, pls tell him the good news and ask him to contact me asap.
Thanks to everyone who participated in this competition. We will do more of this in the future. God bless everyone!

African China's 'Mr President' is Nigerian song of the decade?

That's according to Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN), who picked the song for it's lyrical content after many months of deliberating.

What's the power situation in your area?

If you live in Nigeria, how is the power situation in your area? My brother came to me last night asking for money to buy fuel for the generator, and I looked at him like, what does fuel mean? Seriously we used to buy N1, 500 fuel every other day in my house and this happened for many years, until about a few months ago. Now there's constant power that sometimes I feel like it's a set up. Are you experiencing same in your area?

Fear grips Christians in Kano and Kaduna following news of Osama's death

Many Christian residents in some areas in Kano and Kaduna left their homes in panic yesterday for fear of an attack on them by Muslims fanatics after news of Osama Bin Laden's death was made public. The late terrorist has some followers there.

Christians in these states were attacked and killed in 2004 by Muslim Osama supporters after the US invaded Afghanistan in search of Osama. The Christians are worried it could happen again...though quite a number of them returned home today.

There's heavy police presence in the streets to contain any protests that might rise. Hopefully nothing like that will happen.

Genevieve Nnaji turns 32 today!

"How Joseph and I met, decided to get married and have a baby" - Adaeze Igwe Yobo

"We met at an event in Abuja and it might have been love at first sight, though I had not noticed it. I did not know that it was something that would go far. I never thought I'd be married when I did. I was not then into the boyfriend thing. I was still discovering myself. But in the course of our phone chats, it was as if we had known each other for a long time. He left Nigeria and came back and overstayed this time and we were together. About a month after that, he started talking about marriage. He said he was serious and that he really loved me. I was already in love with him, so I thought about it and realized I had nothing to lose.
