Beauty Queen and Other Invitees Refused Entry To Town Hall Meeting With Buhari

PMB had a town hall meeting with Nigerians  at the Embassy in New York yesterday.  Going by the pictures below, it looks like there were more invitees standing outside the town hall hoping to be let in than those sitting inside the meeting room.....

Walk Naked In America Day?!?!?

Is tomorrow "Walk Naked In America Day?"  Adontbelivit!  Found this post on Facebook:

Follow ·  11 hrs ·  


As you may already know, it is a sin for a Muslim male to see any naked woman,
Other than his wife, and if he does, he must commit suicide. 

So next Saturday at 1 P.M. Eastern Time, ALL American women
Are asked to walk out of their house completely naked to help
Weed out any neighborhood terrorists....

(Circling your block for 1 hour is recommended for this anti-terrorism effort.)
All patriotic men ARE to position themselves in lawn chairs with coolers,
in front of their houses to demonstrate their support for the women
And to PROVE... that they are not Muslim terrorist sympathizers.

Since Islam also does NOT approve of alcohol, a cold 30-pack
of beer at your side is FURTHER proof of your patriotism.

God Bless America!!

P.S. ----If you don't share this, you could be considered a terrorist-sympathizing,
Lily-livered coward and are possibly aiding and abetting terrorists.

P.S:  The American government appreciates your effort to root out terrorists and applauds your participation in this anti-terrorism activity?!?!?

Hair Wars: Creative Hairstyles Cause Furore

An extremely creative mum wove her daughter's hair (cornrows), inserted the caption 'Girls Rock' in her daughter's cornrows and posted the picture on social media.  I thought the weaving was extremely creative, the pattern really complicated, cornrows made with love but others who saw the picture thought otherwise and made their opinions known.  One lady actually made a comment that braiding or weaving a little girl's hair that tight was child abuse, would make the little girl's hair fall out and encouraged lice to grow on the little girls hair.  WHAT??!?!?!?!?!?????!

Majority of us grew up with painful hairstyles.  Beauty is pain and gain right?  Of course a new hairstyle will hurt but the pain subsides after a day or two and you get to be the centre of attention especially if the style is outstanding.  Other mum's rose to the creative mum's defence and posted other awesome styles they made on their kids hair.  More pictures after the cut.....

Tourists stick heads out of windows to get better view of lions and their kill

I am all for visiting Safari parks and seeing nature at its best.  Remember Katherine Chappell was in the news recently because she was wound down her window and stuck her head out of her car window to get a better view of the lions?  She got killed by a lion who dragged her out through the window of the jeep she was in.

Seems these tourists have not learnt any lessons from Katherine's death.  They are on a safari and came accross two lions devouring their prey.  See the guy in blue (jeep behind) who wound his window down completely, stuck his arm and neck out for a better view?  What if the lion got distracted and turned on him instead? *SMH*

Patricia Navidad's Panty Liner Falls Out During Live Performance

This is a lady's worst nightmare.  Loosing your panty liner or sanitary towel in public! A massive oooops moment! Serious Gobe! This happened to Mexican singer Patricia Navidad a couple of days ago during a live performance where she was singing her hit song "Despierta America" on breakfast tv.  Her panty liner fell from her panties while she was singing live but she was professional and carried on singing!! Oops!! 

I would probably have bent down and picked it up while singing at the same time but heh - I'm not Patricia!
Loads of people made demeaning comments online but Patricia came all out to defend herself and told the entire world that this is the 21st century and there wasn't anything to be ashamed of.

She tweeted: "I want to make it clear that I never threw or would throw the pad It fell by itself through a very sophisticated tunnel.  Too bad all the men that are making fun of this weren't there, because if it is what they say it was I would have loved to have smeared it on their face.  I'm not a boxer, I'm not a warrior, and I never throw in the towel unless I don't need it anymore.  Thank you, I love you."

She also tweeted: "This is not something I should be ashamed of or be mocked for.  But while judging, bullying and pointing at me you forget you are not what you say you are."

I say this viral video and its resultant publicity will turn out in Patricia's favour.  I see her becoming an ambassador for a female panty liners or towels in the very near future.  Good on her for standing up for herself and not cowering under online pressure!

Father vs Daughter Beatbox Contest

Nicole and her dad invite us into their home as they battle it out in a beatbox competition.  Beatboxing to the uninitiated is the art of making sounds, rhythm, drum beats and musical sounds using the mouth, tongue, lips and voice.  I am assuming Nicole's dad taught her the art of beatboxing but this protege is becoming stronger daily.  I say she nailed it! Watch the video and judge for yourself.

The Pros of Social Media

 This ghastly accident occurred 48 hours ago between Okene and Kabba where a Lexus Jeep belonging to Asiwaju Isaac Akinkunmi was involved in a head on collision.  In this case, social media was used positively, a call was put out and Asiwaju's family was used to alert Asiwaju's family of his plight.  His family were alerted that he had been taken to Veritas Clinic in Kabba for medical attention.

The Cons of Social Media

One of the cons of social media these days is that something may happen to you and passer-bys would rather stand and take pictures of you squirming in pain rather than rendering first aid or helping convey you to a hospital where you would receive proper medical care.  Such was the plight of the young lady above who was involved in an accident during the week.  Apparently the brakes of a trailer failed, causing the driver to lose control of his vehicle and plough into her.  She was standing by the roadside and her legs were crushed as can be depicted in the picture.  You can see that she is sitting on the coal tar and calling for help but so many feet around her seem to be just standing still.

Has anyone bothered to go looking for her in the hospital?  I believe the accident was in the capital city of Asaba.  I hope the trailer driver and the owners of the trailer are brought to book for her injuries.  She has been scared for life looking at her mangled legs.  This is a call out to my blog readers in Asaba.  Can anyone please give a feedback on her condition?  Lawyers and Activist in Nigeria - please rise up to this lady's aid and seek justice! Let the perpetrators of her injuries either vicarious or not, not go scot free.

Let us turn this 'con' into a 'pro' and assist her in every possible way.

Prince Philip makes another royal gaffe.....

Prince Phillip - Queen Elizabeth's husband is notorious for his gaffes.  He commissioned a community centre recently and asked the three ladies in the picture "So, who do you sponge off?"  Cringe!! Luckily, the ladies took the gaffe in their stride and laughed it off responding "We are all married so we sponge off our husbands".  I can happily say I sponge off my man as well.  What is his is ours. (smile).  Lets leave it at that......

Prince Philip famously said to "Uncle Sege" - President Obasanjo who was all decked out in his traditional attire: "You look like you are ready for bed!" LOL!! More royal gaffes after the cut....

Read President Buhari's Eid-el-Fitr Message To All Citizens

Fellow Compatroits, I greet and felicitate with you all, especially our citizens of the Islamic faith on this auspicious occasion of the 2015 Eid-el-Fitr celebrations.  I congratulate all those who have successfully completed the Ramadan fast in keeping with the injunction of our Creator.

Although we have come to the end of this year’s month of Ramadan, I believe that a greater acceptance by Nigerians of its key lessons of self-denial and sacrifice will serve our dear country well as we strive to overcome our present challenges, undo the damage done by years of bad governance and accelerate the pace of national development.

Happy Eid-ul-Fitr!

 Today marks the end of the month long muslim Ramadan fast.  Here's wishing our muslim brothers and sisters a happy Eid-ul-Fitr.

Domestic Violence Again?!?!? Model spots black eye in Vlog

These are indeed troubled times for former Mr International Ireland (2009), television presenter and fitness trainer/gym owner - Francis Usanga.  He is in the news and facing a huge backlash after his partner of several years, mother of his two kids, model, fitness blogger and vlogger - Emma Murphy posted a vlog showing a huge black eye she alleges was caused by her partner Francis on Friday 10th July 2015.


Found on Twitter: True or False?

V: When your barber could have been a surgeon but institutional racism limited his opportunity.

Do you really think Institutional racism had anything to do with @AbdiTV's barber's choice of profession? Share your thoughts.

Tinuola Loses Home Given To Her In Late Father's Will

Tinuola Aregbesola is currently in a battle with Barclays Bank over their negligence in drafting a £90 will made by her father - Ebenezer Aregbesola in 2007.  Late Pa Ebenezer Aregbesola used Barclays Bank £90 will writing service to make execute a will bequeathing his half of the home he shared under a joint tenancy with his wife (who was not Tinuola's mum) to his daughter Tinuola.  However, the law states that in such circumstances, the joint tenancy must be severed before one half can be given out to a person who is not a scion of both joint tenants.  Barclays bank fails to point this out to Pa Ebenezer and his gift to Tinuola failed.  Where a joint tenant dies, the house becomes fully owned by the surviving joint tenant who can do with it or bequeath it to anyone he or she pleases.

That is the current situation Tinuola found herself.  Under the current law, the home in Balham is now fully owned by her step mother.  She took Barclays to the regulators who held that Barclays must indemnify her for her loss.  Barclays now alleges that their will writing service is unregulated and not under the jurisdiction of the regulators so they do not have to obey its instructions to pay Tinuola compensation for the shoddy will written for her father by its will writing division.  Tinuola has now vowed to take Barclays to court in a bid to get them to pay compensation.

Poor lady - losing a parent is traumatic enough but having to go through this ordeal (incurring additional costs) is something else entirely.  The moral of the story is - always have a lawyer cast a fresh eye over your will DIY (Do It Yourself) or not.  Better still, always make sure a lawyer is involved in drafting your will so your beneficiaries can avoid stories that touch!

My Experience at Enchained Movie Premiere - Chima Ezechukwu

Chima and Enchained Producer - Abigail Irving

Chima Ezechukwu is the author of the crime fiction novel - Snake Against Shadows.  He has written a brief review about his experience at the premiere of Nollywood movie - Enchained which took place on 10th July 2015.  See the review below:

The Movie Premiere of The Long Awaited Block Buster 'Enchained!'
Hi Everyone,
Mr lnspiration is enchanted with the Nollywood UK movie block buster 'Enchained' Why? Well, that's because everything about the movie and it's storyline was intriguing and captivating.
The premiere was held at the Odeon at Greenwich, Bugsby way London. The film was written and produced by Abigail lrving whom l understand is still a newbie in the Nollywood UK industry. But my hat goes off to her because she did pull it off with her first stab at the UK West African industry. She is a good story teller.
The movie was shot here in the UK and was structured around a young man named Ryan whose underhand activities land him into trouble. He eventually falls prey to his own malicious designs.
This was actually my first African movie premiere in the UK and l thoroughly enjoyed it. I was impressed on the night not only by the quality of story. But equally by the performances of the film actors and actresses including the child star who appeared in the movie.
But as biased as this may sound l believe the lead character of the movie stole the show. His name was John Remedy and l approached him to congratulate him after the show. I introduced myself and told him about my first crime thriller novel Snake Amongst Shadows. I left my details with him and approached other members of the cast and crew.
I met some famous faces and talked to a few supporting cast members and film makers who co produced the film with Abigail lrving.

People like Film maker/Actor Prince lfeanyi Okoye whom l knew had starred in a good number of films with the best of the best in Nollywood.
Lastly, the new catchphrase is still 'Justice Screams And Mayhem Walks'. The campaign is still on. So log onto my webpage which and buy the e-book NOW!  As mentioned before the Rattlesnake will be back. And the world will never be the same again.
Stay Safe!
