The United States Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr Terrence McCulley, two days ago said that over 100,000 Nigerians apply weekly to visit the US, for various reason. Of course more than half of them are denied.

100, 000 a week? Hmmmm... But when you really think about it, do you blame them? There are hundreds of thousands of graduates sitting at home doing nothing. But then again, is it any better in the US?

Ramsey Noah denies breaking his waist on movie set

A few weeks ago, stories spread on the internet that star actor Ramsey Noah had been involved in a life threatening accident on set of a movie in Ghana. The story was that Ramsey crash-landed on a concrete floor when he fell from a building while trying a stunt on a movie set in Kumasi. The actor has expressed dismay at the story, saying it never happened. Ramsey tells an Encomium reporter:
“It is not true at all. That is why I don’t talk to journalist because what they do is carry fake stories. People have been calling me about this issue, but I don’t say anything about it because it pisses me off. I read that I broke my waist, but all these are lies. I was in Ghana for a film shoot and on set I fell from the ladder. It was nothing serious. It’s just that the people there got scared, but nothing happened to me. And before I knew it, the story had circulated that it was life threatening. After I came back from Ghana, the next day I went to RMD’s birthday party very healthy and not bend-walking.

How Don Jazzy and D’Banj Betrayed Me – JJC

Back in the day, Don Jazzy, D'Prince and JJC
JJC/Skillz needs no introduction. He is a producer, rapper, DJ, song writer, a founding member of the popular UK group, Big Brovaz, founder of JJC and the 419 Squad, and president of Backbone record, which was once home to D'Banj and Don Jazzy. Skillz tells a City People reporter how he was betrayed by D'Banj and Don Jazzy
It’s just life. Some people forget how everything started and some people remember, I would say that I was really the person that built the foundation for everybody to become what they are today and I would expect that they would remember and pay me that regard but they don’t.
The experience with Don Jazzy, D’Banj and other ex 419 Squad members was heartbreaking, because it was personal and it became something that affected me emotionally, hence the reason I left music for four years and nobody saw or heard from me. I didn’t record or do anything musically. I slowed myself down.

Arnold wears 'I survived Maria' T-Shirt. Funny or in bad taste?

The T-shirt reads, Front: It's Time. Back: I survived Maria

He actually got it as a present last year, but after wearing it again recently, people thought it was in bad taste, considering he fathered a child while still married to Maria. Oh well, he probably didn't mean it in a disrespectful way...

My father died of AIDS – BBA winner, Karen Igho

When asked what she would do with her $200, 000 BBA cash prize, Karen replied
The money is still hot. I want it to cool down first. Later, I would think of what to do with it. I will follow the adage that says ‘charity’ begins at home. Like you all heard, my father died of AIDS, so I want to use part of the money to pursue that cause. I will start in Nigeria before I go to other countries.

The gunmen that killed my aide came for me – Daddy Showkey

On Tuesday July 26th 2011, armed men went to the Ojodu home of Daddy Showkey and killed one of his aides. The ghetto soldier told an encomium reporter that they were not armed robbers but hired assasins. He says:
They were not armed robbers, they were gun men. They came for me but didn't meet me at home. It was on Tuesday July 26th, the gunmen came to my house, they met my fourteen year old son at the gate and pushed him inside the compound, inside were the people working on my new house. They asked for me and they were told I wasn't home and one of them shot one of my workers, Suraji Wale on the chest. After the shooting, they left without taking anything from my house. I was told they were shouting my name 'Showkey, Showkey'. From what I heard, they'd been to my house before asking after me.

Lovely Okojie reacts to Prince Odi's alleged interview

Lovely - My traditional name is Adaze and my maiden name is Anetor
Dear Linda, I read with sadness the interview Odi granted another online site, (that is if he really said those things) and decided to react. He said in the interview that our marriage was dissolved in 2007 because I was having extra marital affairs. He's a big liar that has lost all my respect. How is this possible when our second child was delivered in September 2008? And how is it possible that our marriage ended in 2007 when we did our traditional in absentia in March 2009? (attached are pictures of our traditional marriage in Benin). Is it possible for a man to catch his wife having extra marital affairs and still pay her bride price? He paid my bride price in 2009 and I only recently found out he was also dating Mercy at the same time.

China is Reportedly Selling Pills Made Out of Dead Babies to Enhance Stamina

There was a rumor floating around that somewhere in China, pills made out of dead babies were being sold. A Korean television documentary team decided to track down the truth behind the rumor, and found a hospital that sells dead babies, mostly abortions or stillbirths. The team found that when the hospital had a 'deceased baby case,' the staff were instructed to immediately alert the medicine company.

The television team also uncovered the process by which the dead baby pills were made. The medicine companies store the dead babies in a refrigerator until they are ready to use the dead baby, then they put it into a medical drying microwave. Once dry, they grind the dead baby up and put the powder into a pill capsule.
