There have been rumours that Beyonce is expecting a second baby, plus her uncle did an interview yesterday saying all sorts about her and her marriage...so maybe this is a response to all the talk.

Televangelist Pat Robertson says all men have a tendency to cheat

83 year old televangelist and media mogul Pat Robertson says that all men have a tendency to cheat and it's a wife’s duty is to keep her man faithful, by focusing on the positive and making sure the home is so enticing he doesn’t want to stray. Robertson said this while responding to a question from a viewer who wrote:
“I’ve been trying to forgive my husband for cheating on me. We have gone to counseling, but I just can’t seem to forgive, nor can I trust. How do you let go of the anger? How do you trust again?"
Below is Pat Robertson's reply...
“Here’s the secret. Stop talking the cheating. He cheated on you, well, he’s a man. You need to focus on the reasons you married him. Does he provide a home for you to live in? Does he provide food for you to eat? Does he provide clothes for you to wear? Is he nice to the children… Is he handsome?”
What? So if he does all this then it's OK for him to cheat? See what else he said after the cut...

Another lovely way to wear Ankara

If you don't like it too sexy like Emma Nyra and co...then you can do it the Rukky Sanda way...all covered up but still sexy!

Ancient tree falls in Imo State, kills over 50 people

An ancient tree (believed by some to be a tree of the gods) fell on Thursday May 16th, killing over 50 people at Umudagu Mbieri, Mbaitoli in Imo State. The Osisi Ukwu Uko, which has been in existence for over 200 years, fell during heavy rainstorm around 8pm Thursday night, collapsing on buildings, people selling their wares and customers buying good in a market under the tree. Those who didn't die lost body parts and are being treated at the hospital.

People in the community had for many years called for the removal of the tree over safety concerns but the community elders refused to chop the tree down arguing that it was an  ancestral landmark.

Some people in the village are speculating that the gods occupying the tree were angry with the villages over something and decided to strike. Urm, OK! See more photos after the cut...

Ibinabo Fiberesima sets up foundation for families of accident victims

The actress and Actors Guild of Nigeria president was involved in a car accident in 2006 which led to the death of a medical doctor. She hit his car along the Lekki/Epe Expressway in Lagos. She was sentenced to five years imprisonment for manslaughter in 2009 but only spent a few months there. She came out of prison a completely changed woman, bidding farewell to alcohol, cigarettes and partying. The single mother of three who is now a born again Christian is setting up a foundation to cater for the welfare of families of accident victims. Ibinabo explains:
“I do have a foundation which I’m setting up. In 2006, I had an accident and a medical doctor, Mr. Suraj Giwa died in the process. A lot of things went wrong, I was sent to jail because of the accident.
It is quite painful, it’s taking me this long because I needed to find myself again. The foundation is going to be for the families of accident victims. I’m going to get people to talk to them and to heal their wounds. What I went through, I was healed by the grace of God.”

Video: Army warns of Boko Haram using fake military uniforms

The Nigerian Army has alerted the public on the use of military camouflage by members of the Boko Haram sect to perpetrate violence and create an impression that the military is responsible, claiming that was the tactic used in the Baga and Bama massacre.

Beyonce's 'uncle' claims she was never attracted to Jay Z

A man claiming to be Beyonce's uncle who calls himself 'Larry Beyince' did an interview with  Celebuzz and said things that are...well see if you believe any of it. Read below...
On Beyonce Before Becoming Mrs. Jay-Z:
“He was after her and she wasn’t. She told me she wasn’t too particularly fond of him.
“I would see him with her and pictures of them, I heard rumors they were together and she told me ‘no.’ You know how women get that look like ‘eww.’ I guess she wasn’t attracted to him.
“But as long as he treats her well and makes her happy, that’s all I ever wanted. He’s okay with me.”
On Beyonce Getting Married:
“I was surprised she married him. I think she got tired of being alone. When you have as much money as she does she has to be careful about people wanting her for her money. And apparently he had as much as she had.
“I don’t think the family cared. Just that whatever he’s doing he’s making money [and] made it okay.”

Lagos residents spend N1b monthly for merriment & entertainment

You know what they say, aint no party like a Lagos party. And we are really spending the dough, to the tune of N1billion every month, according to the Lagos State government.

Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Mr. Ademorin Kuye said made this known yesterday. He said: 
“Over N1billion is spent monthly in Lagos state on entertainment and parties, we have the records to confirm this and these people, how many of them pay tax? The money goes into drinks, wine, food, aso-ebi and all of that and when they spend all of this money; they do not want to pay anything to the government”
"This justified the reason why local Governments demand that anyone organising events in the state must pay the Merriment Tax.”
 “There is merriment tax in that constitution, its part of the rate Local Governments can collect. We have not fully utilised the benefit of the entertainment industry in this state”.
So basically, the state government is considering the introduction of merriment/party tax? How is that even going to work? Please share your thoughts on this...

Uche Ogbodo responds to Afrocandy's offer to star in her porn flick

Below is the statement she sent out this evening..
I, Uche Ogbodo, emphatically state that I am an actress and not a porn star. The fact that I was just experimenting and having fun with the 'Lady Gaga' red hair photo shoot is not an excuse for the likes of AfroCandy to insult me.
If I ever decide to strip in a movie, trust me, it'd be worth it like Halle Berry did in Monster's Ball and Swordfish. Right now I am in talks with a reputable artiste management outfit to represent me and re-invent myself.
Uche Ogbodo.

Tweet of the day: from Dencia

AfroCandy wants Uche Ogbodo, Cossy & Anita Joseph to star in her new porn movie

Lol, Afrocandy, you no fit! She wants Cossy Orjiakor, Anita Joseph and Uche Ogbodo to appear in her next soft porn flick...and promises it will happen. Erm, don't hold your breath. It's highly unlikely. Uche Ogbodo did say she can act nude but acting nude is different from perfecting a sex act. Plus I doubt she can afford them. But let's keep out fingers crossed.

The 41 year old mother of two recently released a soft porn movie called 'Destructive Instinct 3 & 4'

"Jarron Collin's T-shirt: Inappropriate or funny?

Jarron's twin brother Jason Collins (left) recently became the first active basketball player to come out as gay. Jarron (right) also a basketball player, was photographed leaving the “Jimmy Kimmel Live Show” in L.A with his twin brother wearing that T.Shirt...letting the ladies know his preference. You know they are identical so he doesn't want to be mistaken for the gay one. Lol

I personally find it funny because he obviously loves his brother and supports his lifestyle but there are those who feel the T-shirt was inappropriate. They feel like if he's truly proud of his brother, he shouldn't try to distance himself from his homosexuality. What do you think?
