KWAM1 talks about his marriage to ex-wife's niece, Titi Masha

I told you guys a few days ago that KWAM1 is married to and expecting a baby with his ex-wife's niece, Titi Masha (couple pictured above). Well, he says the Masha family is so big that his ex-wife might not even know her niece, Titi. What he told reporters below...
Salewa (his ex-wife) who is being spoken about here remarried some 20 years ago and she is still married, so to claim that I married cousins, yes they might be on the long run but anyone knows that the Masha Eshilokun family is such a large family in Lagos. Many of them do not even know themselves' K1 said
And he also addressed the issue of him snatching Titi Masha from a close friend of his, Gbenga Islander.
I have dated many women in my life who are today legally married, how many of them will I call and say, I have dated your wife before? What happens to such? Do we crucify a woman for having dated someone before? Do we say because a woman is married before she cant remarry like we all do or do we say because I’m a star I don't have feelings or am not human? We all know that Fela was once married to 27 women at once in this country...I’m only married to two!'

British engineers produce amazing 'petrol from air' technology

A small company in the north of England has developed the “air capture” technology to create synthetic petrol using only air and electricity. Experts last night hailed the astonishing breakthrough as a potential “game-changer” in the battle against climate change and a saviour for the world’s energy crisis.

The technology, presented to a London engineering conference this week, removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The “petrol from air” technology involves taking sodium hydroxide and mixing it with carbon dioxide before "electrolysing" the sodium carbonate that it produces to form pure carbon dioxide. Hydrogen is then produced by electrolysing water vapour captured with a dehumidifier.

DeVon Franklin reveals he was celibate for 10 years before marrying Meagan Good

Devon Franklin revealed in a recent interview with Global Grind that he was celibate for 10 years before marrying actress Meagan Good June this year.
She was celibate before we got together and I was celibate. You’re not going to believe me. Let me just put it this way, I've been celibate over ten years. Part of what I also do is preach and the thing that I couldn’t do, which was eating me apart…What was happening with me is that I would go and preach one thing but I was going and living another and I could not do it. I could not look at myself in the mirror. I was like, ‘No, I cannot live like this,’ so I had to stop and say, ‘You know what, until I get married, that’s off the table.
Devon is a pastor and Sony Pictures Executive. A man who practices what he preaches! Lucky Meagan!

Charles Novia's critique of Tonto Dike's songs

Found the write up on the movie producer and record label owner's Facebook page. See it below...
Tonto's Terrible Tremolo by Charles Novia.
I have restrained myself for a couple of years from commenting on Tonto Dike's career after my last comments about her role in the soft porn movie she acted in two years back, were badly taken by her and she went on twitter to hurl infantile insults on my person with expletives and uncomplimentary remarks. My reaction to such then was just a dignified silence. After all, I had already spoken on her stunted talent as an up and coming actress and further comments on her incensed tweets were unnecessary.

Billionaire businessman Ifeanyi Uba spends second week in detention

The billionaire businessman and MD of Capital Oil and Gas Ltd is currently in a small cell at the Special Fraud Unit in Ikoyi.

The committee discovered gross abuse by many marketers and reported the case to the police. His company leads the list of 25 companies indicted by the committee which discovered about N62 billion of subsidy fraud.

So he's now facing criminal investigation and prosecution for Capital Oil and Gas' involvement in fuel subsidy fraud. He was in court yesterday and the Special Fraud Unit of the Nigerian Police told the court that the money stolen by Mr Uba, could conveniently pay the monthly allocation of 11 states of the federation and asked the courts not to grant him bail, which they didn't.

Meanwhile, his company has been blacklisted by banks on the recommendation of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
