May your soul rest in peace dad

wpid-imag0973.jpg

I’m really short of words. I didn’t know what it feels like to loose someone very close to you until two weeks ago on Thursday, 17th of March, the day I lost my dad.

On that fateful day, I was closing from work when my elder sister called me and broke the news to me. I was shocked and devastated because I expected you to leave us so soon. After the call, so many things started going through my head, I was like why dad? Why you leave us so soon? Then I remembered our chat two months ago when I last saw you. You asked why am still not married and I told you that I haven’t found the right girl and you were like “Oga you better get married now that am still alive.” I am sorry that I failed to bring my wife to you and at the same time disappointed that you didn’t wait to meet her.

I know you know the type of person I am going to be but you couldn’t even wait to see me become that person. You didn’t wait to see the type of house I am going to build. I promised to buy you your dream jeep right after I buy mine and what happens now? *sobs….I don’t want to do this.

You were an amazing father to all, a loving husband to my mum, a caring grandpa, a great uncle and a true leader. We love you but God loves you more.

Goodbye dad…..

Looks like pop singer duo P-Square have settled the feud between them and their manager/elder brother Jude Okoye. The headline should be Peter Okoye settles beef with twin brother Paul Okoye and elder brother Jude Okoye but I wan respect myself *clearsthroat.

Anyway, the three brothers shared this photo above on their respective instagram pages with the caption;

Buhari photographed wearing a N2.8 million pair of shoes

wpid-1457978747792.jpg

Our Naija president Mohammadu Buhari was photographed today on his way to board a plane to Equatorial Guinea rocking a pair of shoes worth over two million naira!

According to Adeyanju Deji who is a member of the People Democratic Party (PDP), the pair of shoes cost a whopping eight thousand dollars ($8,000)!!! that’s about two million, eight hundred thousand (2,800,000) when converted to Nigeria currency.

Adeyanju shared the photo of the President wearing the shoes with the caption below;

“The so called poor man turned president now wears $8,000 shoes. How interesting?”

image

Many Nigerians also condemned Mr President for wearing shoes that costs that much. But judging from what they wrote on twitter, they are not angry that his shoes costs that much….After all he is a president of an oil producing country, they are angry because they felt betrayed and used by the President who claimed he’s not after all these material things during his campaign and when he was elected. Mr President even promised us that he would sell off all the Presidential jets but that’s not the case here.

I have one thing to say! Not that am a Buhari supporter or trying to defend him but have you guys or Mr Adeyanju thought that this shoes might be a gift to him? Just saying though…..

P-Square are done for good! Peter performs solo

wpid-peterpsquare_2016-03-13_12-26-27.jpg

Judging by the photos and videos that Peter Okoye and Paul Okoye of P-Square have been sharing on their respective instagram account after their family’s public brouhaha, we don’t need a prophet to tell us that the former duo have gone solo.

Just after a week Peter dropped a solo track, the singer performed solo at a private event in Abuja last night.

Paul on the other hand (who now goes by the name Rudeboy) has been busy promoting his new artists – Muno and Lucy and there’s this song he did with Tiwa Savage titled “Get It Together”  a campaign song for the NURHI project funded by Bill and Melinda Gates.

These two should really get it together!!!

Linda Ikeji giving out N500k to a woman who carries block at a construction site in Port Harcourt

wpid-img_93116934075162.jpeg

Linda Ikeji wants you all to help her find this hardworking lady. She wants to give her half a million naira to start a business.

Her name is Blessingnick Nicholas. According to her Facebook profile, she’s an Environmental health graduate from College of Health Sciences, Rivers state. She’s from Benin-City in Edo state but lives in Port Harcourt.

So here is why Linda wanted to give her N500,000.
She shared this photo above on Facebook writing how she carries block and water at a construction site and how they pay her N2000 per 200 blocks she carried.

“It’s not yet 2pm and I have made 2k from carrying blocks at a building site….carried 150 blocks, it’s supposed to be 200 blocks but they pitied me and brought it to 150….now am resting to start at another site, this time it’s to fetch water for them till they finish mixing and moulding 15 bags of cement….another 2k on the way….Mehn it’s not easy and am scared of developing muscles in my arms… but it’s either this or begging and sleeping around….but there is no noble beggar or prostitute.” – She wrote

If this isn’t inspiring I don’t know what is! Some of us might be doing even worse jobs and receive less than 2k a day but we ain’t proud of it! I like her confidence. God bless her and I hope Linda finds her.

Jonathan never liked the people of Rivers state – Amaechi said

wpid-jonaand-amaechi-300x188.jpg

Former Rivers state Governor and now Minister of transportation, Hon Rotimi Amaechi took a shot at for Nigeria president Goodluck Jonathan during an interview at a radio station in Port Harcourt yesterday saying that he never liked the people of Rivers state.

In his words;

“Jonathan hated the Rivers people so much that ordinary one billion dollars ($1bn) to clean up Ogoni land he refused to pay.”

Ordinary $1bn? Wow…. A billion dollar is ordinary? SMH

Ogoni is a name of place in Rivers state and we all know what happened there – the land was filled with oil spillage, oil flaring, and waste discharge.

Amaechi also took a shot at the present Rivers governor, Nyesom Wike, saying that he’s in office to steal money. Wike has since replied him saying that he (Amaechi) needs an urgent psychiatric attention…lol

Ibinabo Fiberesima to spend 5 years in jail

wpid-wpid-baeiajjkgvn.jpg

Nollywood actress and the President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Ibinabo Fiberesima has been sentenced to five years imprisonment for a crime she committed in 2005…that’s eleven years ago!

Now what’s her crime?
In 2005, Ibinabo was involved in a motor accident on Lekki-Ekpe expressway.  A man, one Mr Giwa Suraj  lost his life and the actress was arrested and charged for reckless driving. She was charged to court and was sentenced to five years imprisonment with an option of a hundred thousand naira fine.

She paid the N100k fine and begged the  family of the deceased and thought all was well until recently when the Lagos state government challenged the case saying that the option of N100k shouldn’t have been given to her. They returned her hundred thousand naira and charged her to high court and she was sentenced to five years imprisonment.

Ibinabo and her lawyer took the case the Lagos state Court of Appeal, begging for the jail term be set aside, but unfortunately for her, today, March 11, the Court of Appeal dismissed her appeal for lack of merit.

According to Vanguard, the mother of three cried her eyes out when her appeal was dismissed.

She will take the case to Supreme court of appeals and if dismissed too, she will go to jail.

Should I tell my brother’s wife about her husband’s infidelity?

wpid-untitled.jpg

An email I received from a blog reader last night asking whether or not to tell his sister-in-law about her husband’s infidelity.

Read below….

Hi Nonso,

This thing has been bothering me for long and after reading the advice your readers gave on personal issues like mine on this blog I decided to send mine. And please don’t publish my name and email address for some security reason (the lady in question reads your blog too. In fact she introduced your blog to me).

My brother and this beautiful lady have been married for only six years and they have two beautiful kids and expecting the third one.

So, earlier this year, I came visitting them in Lagos from Abuja and my brother took me out to a joint nearby. While there, he called a girl in her early twenties to hang with us and when I asked who she was, my brother told me she’s his girlfriend. I was disappointed in him cause I never thought he’s someone like that.

I like this my sister-in-law so much that am tempted to tell her about her husband’s infidelity but am scared she will divorce his a$$. Should I tell her or should I just keep my mouth shut?
