Porshe Cayenne wedding gift: The other side of the story

You've all read Larry's side of the story, this is the other side that you all must read. Culled from Stelladimokokorkus' blog. Written by Stella herself
Mr Larry has used his giant teeth to bite the finger that has fed him. He is busy granting interviews and spreading lies but inside sources swear he has been sending people to beg Mr Kachikwu to overlook what happened.
I read his sorry piece where he was quoted as saying ''We agreed on everything that he's going to pay on Monday but now that he has shined with the car and can't raise the money he's telling me stories."
My Question is how can someone who borrowed Larry N20million when he was in need of it not be able to pay him N14million naira?

Why I changed my name to Safarie' Singer, Ego Omalicha opens up

The sexy singer explains:
We are two Ego's in the music industry and we get mistaken for the other most of the time. For example, she got nominated for an award and people started congratulating me, and I had to explain to them one after the other that it wasn't my Ego. At times a song that one of us did is usually mistaken for the other. I realized that this issue just kept dragging me back, because I was sharing my brand name with someone else and yes, she has been there before me. So, I just decided that it would be better for me to create my own brand name and style that would be originally me without any controversy.

The Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, on Thursday, tried to douse the controversy set off by the implementation of the budget by the Goodluck Jonathan administration.

Okonjo-Iweala spoke at the Senate when she appeared before the special joint committee on the performance of the 2012 budget.

Asked if the country was broke, she said, “The country is absolutely not broke. And I want to repeat that again, because there are those who would want to push that idea. The country is not broke, (though) the country may have cash flow problems from time to time. That is normal and is to be expected because a person may be very wealthy, he may have a lot of assets but at a particular point in time the stream of income may delay.

Nigeria's men basketball team, D'Tigers, lost to Team USA last night. No surprise there really, the only surprise for me was how the game ended. Nigeria - 73 USA 156. Ouch!

Team USA used our Nigerian team to make Olympics history. They set Olympics record for most points scored in a game. It was also the biggest margin of victory for a USA team with 83 points. And lastly, it was the most threes made (29) in US Olympics history. Up Naija! lol.

But our boys tried sha! There's no shame in being beat by the best, so big kudos to them. If you watched it, what did you think of the game?
