OMG! Whitney Houston dies at 48

Such a sad sad sad day. Whitney Houston, one of the best singers the world ever saw, is dead. She died this afternoon Saturday February 11th, 2012. She was 48 years old.

The singer was staying at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California  preparing to go to Clive Davis pre-grammy party before she was found dead.

No one knows exactly what killed her, but some media houses are saying suicide, others - drug overdoes. So so so sad! Was hoping she would one day overcome the drug addiction...

Goodbye to the greatest voice of all time. Sleep well, Whitney! So so sad...

The 'U' and 'L' Shaped Lace Wigs: Our Gift to Women

We all have an idea of what we think the typical lace wig should look like. The initial lace frontal and lace wig craze started out pretty well until it got so bad that all weaves started being used for lace frontal and full lace wigs! A lot of people started to dislike the idea of wearing the lace frontal or full lace wigs either because of the glue required or the artificial appearance some people perceive.

Don Jazzy Statement – Re: Anti-Rap Accusation

Don Jazzy's statement below...
My bro I am so sorry about what I said. Pls do not take it the wrong way. I would do my best to explain wot exactly I meant Sir.
I like rap. I wish I could rap but unfortunately I can’t. That aside what I mean’t was simply the fact that I don’t know any Nigerian parent above 40 that can recite our rap word for word. That would be something. If there are hip fathers and mothers in Nigeria I don’t think they would be more than 5% of parents.

Culture of Silence and Domestic Violence: The Death of Nkechi and Unborn Child. True Story

This is a True Story on an event that took place recently in Enugu State Nigeria. Attorney Ike Melchyesedech Ezekwu Sr,  has been in communication with various victims of domestic violence in Enugu and other parts of Nigeria. This is just one of the many stories. His email below...
My dear friends,
I come before you humble, with my head bowed and on bended knees. Today, my heart is heavy and my anguish is unimaginable. Like the biblical Rachaelweeping for the death of her children, I have refused to be consoled.
On Monday, I received a call from Nigeria from a friend about Ms Nkechi Ngene [maiden name]. Ms Ngene was 8 months pregnant, an unemployed mother of two minor children, and the wife of a man, that is known to his friends as Chico Chime- a motor cycle spare part dealer in Enugu. Both resides in Enugu GRA, and are from Akwuke Autonomous Community [Nkanu] in Enugu South LGA of Enugu State. On January 31, 2012, she confronted her husband about his incessant infidelity, and he responded by beating the crap out of  her. Ms Ngene sustained various bruises, but worst was that she began to bleed profusely and uncontrollably. The unkindest cut of all was that her husband left her to die.
