Dear LIB Readers: My Boyfriend wants me to get pregnant before proposing

My boyfriend of over two years just told me that for him to propose marriage to me; I have to get pregnant first. I wasn’t brought up that way, and I never wanted to be a pregnant bride. I have tried to convince him for us to get married first before pregnancy but he is insistent. I almost feel like telling him to go to hell, but I am in late twenties. I really hate that a man is giving me this condition before marriage.

'How my father died inside a swimming pool at 45' - Tunde Obe

The entertainer shared his story in his Inner Circle column in Yes! Magazine this week. Read below...
The story of my father, the late Amb. Emmanuel Oyeleye Obe, was one of success, by any standard. He’d been serving in Senegal, Gambia and Mauritania simultaneously, as Nigerian Ambassador, which necessitated me, my mum and three siblings, living in Dakar Senegal, the biggest country of the three, during that period.
My mum, as an ambassador’s wife, needed not do anything but play the perfect hostess and organise lunch and dinner parties at home for her husband’s associates in diplomatic circles, whilst we the children (aged between 3 and 12years) simply went on with our plush, rich lifestyle, having gotten used to same whilst dad served in Mali, Tokyo, Geneva, Rome, and Washington DC previously.

Is this chicken too sexy? PETA thinks so...lol

Work it chicken...very fierce! lol
This photo of a raw chicken lounging 'seductively' ran on Wednesday Sept 27th in the food section of The New York Times, along with a story on the appeal of crispy, savory chicken skin.

PETA isn't happy about the image. "When I saw it I just couldn't believe that an editor of The New York Times would find it acceptable," PETA's founder and president Ingrid Newkirk told reporters "It's downright offensive, not just to people who care about animals but almost to everyone. It's a plucked, beheaded, young chicken in a young pose," she said.

A Time's editor said the image was intended as a humorous, eye-catching approach to your standard food fetish art. But PETA's Newkirk is calling it necrophilia.

This PETA people should go and sit down one place jor and stop disturbing people o jare...

UK Govt trying to deport Nigerian couple without their six children

Six children, including an infant of a Nigerian couple are in the custody of British authorities, because the British Police insist the children are not biological children of the couple. The five minors were said to have been whisked away by the men of the Haringey Police to the Sharon Fair Haringey Social Service  on June 12, 2010, after they had stormed the Norwich Park Hospital, where the woman claimed she had given birth to the last child, who is also in custody of the police.

To commemorate Cancer Awareness Month this October, Wana Wana is collaborating with Sebeccly Cancer Care and Support Center (SCC) in the 1K4Cancer campaign. The goal is to raise funds for women diagnosed with breast cancer by donating a minimum of one thousand naira.
1K4Cancer arises from the dire need to assist breast cancer patients who cannot afford treatment. The idea is that if one thousand people donate one thousand naira each, 1K4Cancer will successfully raise one million naira for breast cancer patients. The funds will go towards chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment for a few women who are currently under the care of SCC.

Statement From The Office of Nduka Obaigbena

This statement from the office of Mr Obaigbena is in response to the press statement released by Jan Malan that I posted yesterday. If you missed it, read it here
Your publication of the PRESS STATEMENT of JAN MALAN refers:
1. The allegations of a completely libellous nature continue to be made against ARISE Magazine and Nduka Obaigbena by South African based Jan Malan of Umzengeli Productions which has found its way onto your website;
2. It is now alleged, falsely and maliciously, that we owe Mr Malan $300,000 for fashion shows he helped to produce in New York and Paris in 2010. He had previously said we owed $400,000 and $600,000 respectively in his moving imagination: the reality is that we have already paid Mr Malan a total of over $2,500,000 for these shows;
