Alleged FRSC brutality

 A mail I got from the victim's colleague. See it below...
On October 24, at about 10am, Gbolahan Olayinka and his office driver had gone to the Mobil filling station along Agege Motor Road, adjacent FRSC office, Mushin, where they usually buy fuel. On arrival, they observed that some men of the Federal Road Safety Commission where stationed there. Gbolahan and his office driver parked at a place that obviously didn’t obstruct traffic, by the gate of the filling station. Before they could turn an eyelid, one of the officers was by their car and was about to release the tube of their tyre.

Dear LIB readers; I stopped using soap and now my V smells bad

A few weeks back, I shared a post from a gynecologist who advised women not to wash their vagina with soap. (Find it HERE). Well, we have feedback from a LIBer who tried the method...and she's not very pleased...:-). See it below...
OMG! I'm really hurting. Ladies remember what Linda taught us on this blog about not washing our vaginal with soap! A new guy I'm seeing and really crazy about called me some days ago that I should see a doctor because my vagina really smells bad. Never been this embarrassed in my whole life. So I'm going back to my soap scrubbing. Please ladies, soap scrub your V.
Haha! In all sincerity, though a lot of comments supported the idea of washing the vagina with just clean hands and warm water, I have never tried it. I just don't use as much soap as I used to...but not use soap at all? Hmm, hmmm, hmmmm! Anyone else with an unhappy lover? :-)

Question of the day: Who wastes the most money; Men or Women?

Which sex is guilty of spending more on items they later regret; men or women? Please share your thoughts

Brazilian student sells her virginity online for charity, gets $780k

Catarina Migliorini, a 20-year-old Brazilian college student who wants to make a "positive impact on the world," has found a curious way of doing it: Auctioning her virginity online. The winning bid of $780,000 was made by a Japanese man named Natsu, and Migliorini will reportedly donate the bulk of the money to a Brazilian initiative that builds homes for poverty stricken families in her home state in Southern Brazil.

This past month, people from all over the world bid on her chastity, from Brazilians, Americans, and Australians - but Natsu's bid of $780,000 ultimately prevailed on Oct. 24.

Catarina must then 'prove' her chastity by subjecting herself to a rigorous gynecological examination, providing the winning bidder, Natsu, with medical evidence of her virginity. Natsu will then be tested for STDs after which they will have sex in international air space aboard a flight from Australia to the U.S. to avoid local prostitution charges. Sex toys are forbidden, but a condom is compulsory

Catalina says she should not be confused with a professional sex worker. "If you only do it once in your life then you are not a prostitute. Just like if you take one amazing photograph it does not automatically make you a photographer." (Erm, not the same thing.)

I sincerely don't know if this is something to be applauded or be ashamed of. She has good intentions, but selling your body? What do you guys think?

Uche Jombo off to the US for corrective eye surgery

God bless American doctors. The delectable actress and movie producer found out she needed corrective eye surgery after going for a routine eye test to get a driver's license in the US.

One of the prerequisites of getting a driver's license in America is to go for an eye test to certify that you can see clear enough to drive. So Ms Jumbo went for hers, since she now spends a lot of time in the US with her husband, and doctors discovered she needed corrective eye surgery, which she has gone for.

New facts about Genevieve Nnaji's Range Rover Evogue endorsement

In June 2012, Nollywood actress Genevieve Nnaji was unveiled as the brand ambassador of Range Rover Evogue and we all heard she got $100, 000 and a brand new Evogue from the deal. But new facts have emerged about the endorsement deal and I got this direct from inside sources.

Genevieve was offered one of two deals by Coscharis Motors; (1) Take $100, 000 and drive a brand new Evoque for only six months after which she will return it or (2) Take $50, 000 and a brand new Evogue valued at over N10million which she can keep.

I heard the actress took the former, (she already has very expensive cars) so will eventually return the SUV.

Kim K wears huge diamond ring amidst engagement rumours

There were speculations that Kanye proposed to Kim while they were in Italy last week for her birthday. A week later, Kim is spotted around rocking a huge diamond ring on her finger...well, not her engagement finger, her pinky finger, because she's still legally married to Kris Humphries so it's probably not proper to flaunt an engagement ring...if that's really what that it is.

Yvonne Nelson says she's not bleaching; releases statement

Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson has time to respond to reports that she's bleaching her skin. See it below...
My attention has been drawn to recent media reports that I am bleaching my skin and the continuous nature of this wicked, unfounded and absolutely unnecessary misinformation have compelled me to once again respond.
These stories are absolutely not true and do not in any way put food on anybody’s table, does not add value to any body’s life and can only be described as mischief.
I fully understand the dangers of skin bleaching and would not engage in any such venture. I am a lady and I appreciate my God-given looks. I do not need to change my skin colour for any reason.
