LIB exclusive: 23yr old girl claims Davido is the father of her unborn twins

21 year old music superstar Davido is about to be a father to twin girls in a few months, if claims by 23 year old Sunshine Haye is to be believed. The UK-based beauty (she's from the Caribbean, half Jamaican) claims she hooked up with Davido during his UK tour in 2013. She is said to be about 4/5 months pregnant. (Sunshine, who is a hair model and video vixen, is pictured above...)

After getting the scoop, I contacted Davido's camp and they denied any knowledge of her allegations.

Well you see, this is not the first time popular socialites have claimed to hook up with the musician. In July 2013, a Kenyan socialite Stacey Brianar aka Pendo called a press conference claiming to have had an encounter with the star, the allegations later turned out to be false as Davido never met the star-struck party girl. So, is this now true? Sunshine's camp swear it is. And have promised to provide proof in due time.

She's even gone on to decorate a nursery for the babies- their room is Disney themed, and has already picked out names for her unborn children. See the pic and her tweets after the cut..

Her marriage is already over, after a whirlwind romance and fairy-tale wedding

In 2007, actress, singer, entrepreneur, model and author, the very beautiful Hilary Duff began dating Canadian NHL player Mike Comrie. They announced their engagement in February 2010 and had a fairy-tale wedding on August 14th 2010. Hilary said at the time that her wedding was everything she had hoped it would be and that she married her prince-charming, her soul mate.

Fast forward to 3 years later, and it's over. Hilary, 26, and Mike, 33, announced their separation on January 10th 2014 after only 3 years of marriage. The actress accused her estranged husband of not 'putting enough effort into their relationship'.

The couple reportedly went to marriage counseling for 18 months to try and find the spark again. "But recently he wasn't doing any of the things they'd worked on," A source told Us weekly "The spark was no longer there. They are better as friends." The couple have a 22 months old son, Luca.

See pics from their wedding three years ago. And that wedding dress...OMG!...

26 year old Ijeoma Nwachukwu went missing last Saturday January 11th after telling a staff of her aunt's that she was going to meet up with her boyfriend of over two years...some guy named Ifeanyi.

According to family sources, Ijeoma left home around 9.30 that Saturday morning to her aunt's shop at the Tradefair complex to help with cleaning. By the time she was done by 4 that evening, she told the other lady she worked with that she was going to meet up with her boyfriend, who had come to the store earlier in the day to give her some kind of chemical to keep for him. The boyfriend then called Ijeoma and asked her to meet him at a hotel called Cossy Hotel at Abuleosun near Tradefair.

That was the last anyone heard from Ijeoma (pictured above) until the police alerted her family on Monday January 13th and told them that her body had been found in a bush near the hotel.

The Obama marriage is on the rocks, according to National Enquirer

Thank God this report is from National Enquirer and not TMZ. So please take it with a very large portion of salt...:-). Find it below...
Under the headline Obama Divorce Bombshell!, the National Enquirer claims their 21-year marriage has dissolved in a string of ugly fights that were prompted by the Mandela memorial incident and — far more outrageously — Mrs Obama’s discovery that Secret Service bodyguards had been covering up infidelity on her husband’s part.
It’s an allegation the White House has declined to comment on, though after Bill Clinton’s trouser-dropping scandals, Americans would be rather less sanguine about any extra-marital activity than the French appear to be over President Francois Hollande’s behaviour.
Mrs Obama, the Enquirer claims, intends to stand by her husband until his presidency is over, at which time he will move back to Hawaii, where he grew up, and she will stay in Washington with their children. Continue...

Chris Okotie stands by comments that all Catholics will go to hell & the Pope is anti-Christ

Rev Chris Okotie is still standing by his earlier comments that the pope is anti-Christ & all Catholics are hell bound. In a new interview with Punch, the Head Pastor of Household of God church justifies his controversial statement. Excerpts from the interview below...
"You recently stirred up controversy when you said Catholics would go to hell. Why did you say that?
 It is because the church perverts the gospel of Jesus Christ and that perversion is located in the leadership. Even as Pope Francis recently announced. However, there are many good Christians within the Catholic Church who are not aware of the doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church, that has substituted Mary for Jesus, in what is known as the hyperdulia of the Virgin Mary. Salvation for them is not through Jesus alone but in accordance with what Pope Francis recently announced to the world. That, in itself, is a direct violation of the sanctity of the scriptures.

Princess Dammy opens up on collapsed marriage, blames some of it on bloggers

In December 2013, comedienne Princess publicly announced the end of her 7-months marriage. In a new interview with Encomium mag, princess broke her silence on the collapsed marriage and said the press, especially bloggers wanted her marriage to collapse. Excerpts below...
There were some allegations that you were oppressing him financially. They cited an example of both of you in a restaurant where you made it obvious to everyone present that you were the one paying for what the two of you had eaten?
They were there abi? People can say anything. It doesn't matter. The truth is the truth. I did not discuss my marriage breakup with anybody except what I just told you. I am a celebrity, the other person is not a celebrity, so what do you expect? Any person can just sit down and start writing what you just told me without even knowing me. If Kanye West was dating a non celebrity and not Kim Kardashian, they will say the same thing. So if I wanted to make the reason public, I would have made it myself. But it is not necessary, marriage is between a couple. We did not take our marriage vow on the street. We took it before God. Me, I am not afraid of man. I am also afraid of God. Anything that happened between God and a couple is sacred. There is no need itemizing the reasons. What is that going to do? Is it going to make the other party happy? Is it going to make us happy? So it is between the person (husband), I and God.

Uganda President refuses to sign anti-gay bill into law

President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda has refused to sign into law an anti-gay bill passed by the country's parliament, which is aimed at imprisoning not just homosexuals, but people who talk about it without condemning the lifestyle. The President in a letter to the Country's parliament speaker said homosexuals are 'abnormal' but could be 'rescued' by improving the economy.
"Even with legislation, they will simply go underground and continue practicing homosexuality or lesbianism for mercenary reasons. You cannot call an abnormality an alternative orientation. It could be that the Western societies, on account of random breeding, have generated many abnormal people." President Museveni said
In December 2013, the Ugandan parliament passed its anti-gay bill going against  the President's advice and now seeks his assent. The President had initially advised that the homosexuality situation in the country be studied deeply and carefully before any laws against the practice be enacted.

The Ugandan anti-gay bill seeks to make all form of homosexual activities a criminal offense to be punishable under law. Homosexuals can get as much as a life term imprisonment punishment. Also anyone who knows a homosexual and doesn't report such to police authorities would also face some sanctions if found wanting.

Update on the destitute that gave birth on the street yesterday

A lot of you wanted an update on the destitute who gave birth to a baby boy on the streets of Ketu yesterday (If you missed it, find it here). Well, here it is. The woman was later taken to a clinic on the same street she delivered yesterday. Name and address of clinic is Oba's Prolific Clinic and Maternity Home, 27, Adisa Akintoye street, Ketu, Lagos. (in case anyone wants to go visit her)

Esther is in the clinic at the moment and she and her baby are being well taken care of according to my source. A register has been opened for her and the new born where all donations are recorded.

The Oba of Ketu and delegates from his palace eventually visited her yesterday at the clinic. The Oba notified a social welfare agency and also blessed her. A lot of people have been trooping in and out since yesterday to visit the woman with gifts.

The woman was actually mentally unstable. From what the people in the neighbourhood said, some touts in the area took advantage of her condition and raped her. But thankfully she's speaking very normal now, very calm and can now remember where she's from. She said she's from Ondo State.

A rep of the clinic said about three different agencies from the Lagos State government, one of which is Office of Youth and Sports Developments, Alausa, had visited her in the hospital. Some agencies are working to take Sister Esther and her baby back home to her family in Ondo state.
