Both delightsome ambassadors fit very much their roles in all ramifications. Adunni, a sumptuous, very well behaved, and very stylish personality and Nino, that's Bolanle Ninolowo, a hunk in every sense of the word.

THE NEW QMA 2017 WOULD BE THE BIGGEST PRIZE WINNER YET IN NIGERIA. As the new Queen is set to cart home ₦5million Naira amongst various other gorgeous prizes.

Another very exciting news from the organisers of Queen Moremi Ajasoro Pageant "QMA 2017".

While the registration has received a major boost by virtue of the fact that registration for participation is "FREE" for all, the "prizes" to be won by the "eventual winner" and runners up has also being the reason for the avalanche of enquiries about participation.

The winner of the upcoming 2nd edition of the new improved "biggest Cultural pageant in Nigeria", would cart home a whooping- ₦5,000,000 Naira (Five million Naira) in grant and support to build up her own desired business. If not for anything, that alone is serious "economic empowerment" like never known and experienced before.

And not just that alone, she would also be aided by experts provided by the organisers to make sure that the business initiative also succeeds and become a profitable venture.

The ₦5 million Naira, would come from the "QMA Impact Investment Fund for Women", which would be another of the highlight at the grand finale of the pageant come November 2017.

The ₦5 million Naira is not just it all, the lucky queen would also drive home a "brand spanking new car too"!!! What a lucky girl she would be indeed! Still yet that's not all. She would also have to herself, a year load of designer apparels to wear all through her reign, all of these things to make her stand out amongst others at all times.

This luckiest of winners yet, would become a "Cultural Ambassador" of the great "Adimula" and "Arole Odua", His Imperial Majesty, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Babatunde Ogunwusi, the Ojaja II, who is the most important, most revered of the Yoruba monarchs in the world, by virtue of his stool and ancestry.

As an ambassador of the Ooni Adimula, the Queen Moremi Ajasoro Pageant winner, would be a member of the "King's entourage" on "his tours around the world", helping to propagate the Ooni's message of peace, togetherness, inclusiveness and love for all mankind.

Olori (Queen) Moremi Ajasoro, the inspiration behind the QMA, was a very beautiful and intelligent heroine, who used her gifts of "beauty, charm and intelligence" to rescue her people from sure slavery and death.

So the one that must wear the crown as the "new QMA 2017", must possess exemplary qualities like intelligence, beauty, charm and grace too.

Olori Abolanle
Like we say sometimes, except it is a deliberate attempt at misdirection, then the lady above might be one of the most important ladies in the whole of Yorubaland pretty soon.

Until the next few days, which would make it a new month, entering the ember months starting in September, before we would know for sure what's up and the truth as it is!

But the speculation is already very very rife as to who is or would the next Olori, that special one, who would epitomise all that is great and wonderful about a maiden and set to take over from where the former Olori Wuraola (queen) has supposedly left off unceremoniously.

The lucky one that is being pointed at and is being referred to for now, though not officially as Olori Ogunwusi is the lady by name Olori Abolanle.

Much is not yet known about her and her background. But all we can say is that she's light skinned and is a pretty lady. Olori Bolanle the "unofficial wife" (until the palace says she is, none can say she is yet) of the Adimula according to unconfirmed gist was introduced to the highly revered monarch by his sisters, all of whom he holds in high esteem. She is said to be from Abeokuta Ogun State.

According to the gist, the trio never liked the first queen (reasons for that we don't know)) and they were alleged to have plotted and did all that was humanly possible to get her removed and expunged.

Though the palace is said to have claimed that all is/was well between the monarch and his 2nd wife, Olori WuraOla, what is obvious for all observers is that they seem to be talking, but their mouth apparently wasn't moving.

So according to the gist which also claimed that Olori Abolanle is the new heartthrob of Yorubaland most revered monarch, this new month of September 2017 would be the official unveiling of the identity of the new Olori (queen).

So while they are still yet to unveil madam to us, we have heard though, that the new queen might be the above lady in the picture.

Can it be true?

Not the very best of times for some of the rich and powerful as we speak, as they grapple with sundry issues which normally would have drowned mere mortals like everyday people.

But like the saying goes, a big head needs a big hat or scarf, so they are surely prepared for the down time and heavy loads they carry and so can easily bounce back from any weight that might be sinking them, atleast the boss of Forte Oil, Mr. Femi Otedola has shown them that when there's life there's surely hope!  Thanks

The Kwaran juggernaut by name HAJIA Bola Muinat Shagaya is currently facing the EFCC's investigation as we speak and would need all her dexterity and manuevirings and connection to get out of the grasp of the anti-graft agency of the government known as the EFCC, who have placed 3 of Madam's accounts on a lock down. In these accounts are about ₦8.6 billion Naira.

HAJIA Bola Muinat Shagaya who is reputed to be one of the richest ladies in Nigeria and a director at Unity Bank and supposedly one of the bank's biggest shareholders has since taken the same bank to court for allowing the EFCC to shutdown her account without a valid court order.

Not only were those accounts seized, investigation is also said to be on going as per Hajia's relationships with about 10 firms and accounts.  The accounts also frozen for the now are First Deep Water Discovery Limited, Bola Shagaya, FAPLiNs Nigeria Limited, Lingo Nigeria Limited, Buri Barclays BDC, Links Global Synergy Limited, OKIOIL Nigeria Limited, Jemaruz Nigeria Limited, PJ Oil and Gas Limited and AFDIN Ventures Ltd.

The anti graft organisation has sent an order to the bank has it to place a "Post No Debit" (PND) on the accounts, and that order had jeopardised a transaction and agreement with a private jet leasing company.

Since the ban placed on the accounts, madam could not defray an accumulated cost of ₦514, 800, 000 being the cost owed the Jet company for the lease of a Bombardier jet. Since the payment agreement couldn't be met by Hajia Shagaya and which led to the termination of the agreement, she has had to forfeit a whooping $1 million USD.

So HAJIA has accused the Bank of complicity in her travails, claiming the bank's alleged failure to do the requisite due diligence when the order from the EFCC came.  


Aliko Dangote

Dr Mike Adenuga

Femi Otedola

Folorunsho Alakija
The annual rich list of the mega men and woman was released again for 2017 and the positions occupied by many of those listed hasn't changed at all, neither the value of their wealth too.

Apart from Femi Otedola, Tony Elumelu and Jim Ovia who all sometimes moves up or down on the ladder before. Femi Otedola has now retained his 3rd position again.

Perennial number 1 and 2 remained fixed, as Aliko Dangote is still the Numero Uno liquid man with a staggering worth as stated by Forbes to be $12.5billion followed by Dr Michael Agbolade Adenuga.

Here is the full list according to their positions and their worth.

Aliko Dangote- Nigeria's richest and by extension Africa's wealthiest and also "Richest Blackman alive", said to be worth $12.5 billion. The value of his worth is not as it used to be meaning his position on the world's richest list from the high of nos 24 has now gone down to less than first 100 in the world.

Otunba 'Dr' Michael Agbolade Adenuga. Nigeria's consistent nos 2 richest. The owner of Globacom Nigeria nos 2 telecommunications company and owner of several other brands, with investments in several other pies.  Net worth is put at $10.5 billion. Some have claimed consistently that he might be worth more than the value above.

Femi Otedola. Nigeria's current nos 3. A position that he sometimes inter changes with others. The father of DJ Cuppy has experienced the down time which really affected his wealth and worth a while back, but he has since bounced back gallantly. A testament to his strength and ability is him occupying this 3rd position now with a net worth of $2.3 billion. The owner of Zenon and chairman of Forte oil is a survivor.

Folorunsho Alakija. Hers is the story of grace. The MD of Famfa Oil is said to be the undisputed Richest woman in Nigeria and probably the richest woman of African descent, there's the issue sometimes about who is richer between her and the Angolan first daughter. The former fashion designer has since grown in leaps and bounds. The UK would not forget the wedding of her son to his beau that held at a palace recently. The media spoke about that wedding with such gloss, that made Africans and Nigerians all over the world proud. Her net worth is placed at $2.1 billion.

Femi FALANA, SAN is a renowned legal practitioner that needs no introduction whatsoever. Long before he became a "Senior Advocate of Nigeria" (SAN) the equivalent of a "Queen's Counsel (QC) years back, the people of whom he had and has been a consistent and unwavering voice had appointed him a "Senior Advocate of the Masses", a title that is very well earned.

Of recent he has learnt his learned voice again to a very important issue and one that very many are rather very concerned about, but rather tame about at the same time, that has to do with the church and by extension religious bodies in Nigeria.

Hear him-

"Under the law, no religious body in Nigeria can operate on its own without a check. Unfortunately the 'Corporate Affairs Commission' has been sleeping!"

For instance there's no law that allows you to take money from the Church and then invest such in business and then privatise it. No! That is against 'CAT C' of the CAC.

It is only in Nigeria where you can take money from the church, money contributed by the 'poor congregation/members' and you go and set up a University that the members of the church cannot attend, cannot send their children to. It is against the rule and law of God. It is against the constitution".

It is very obvious that things are not as they used to be no more. Gone are those days when you can call the bluff of certain Government organisation and get away with it without paying dearly for it. At least with this example now, all others would no who is the boss!

As we speak, the world's richest blackman and African on the continent, Aliko Dangote's younger brother Sayyu Dantata's brand has plenty of explaination to do as we speak.

The offence? Not necessarily an offence like that and it's even not on a personal basis, but it has to do with his business concern MRS which has been accused of tax evasion. The famous brand has been accused of tax default. And for not responding to the query from owing a humongous ₦497million Naira the brand's HQ has been sealed.

Though it was said that the accountant in concert with the head of security of the Apapa based company had tried to prevent the FIRS team lead by Anita Erinne from doing their job, that couldn't stop the men of the FIRS, as they still sealed the MRS facilities.

Knowing the super liquid Sayyu Dantata very well that amount from the FIRS led by Mr. Tunde Fowler is sure a chicken feed, so we know for sure that it would only take a few hours for the communication breakdown to be resolved very amicably. How much is half a billion for MRS, which is one of the biggest players in the downstream sector of the economy? At most that translates to $1.5million dollars, the cost of a super wrist watch or a house!

Though MRS is claiming to have sorted out the payment, FIRS claims the contrary, so both parties would soon resolve their differences and we would soon get a statement stating just that. 


Baring any unforeseen circumstances, serial entrepreneur and fashionista "Liz Gavy is getting set to declare open sometime soon, something very very dear to her heart.

As we speak, all her attention and focus are on this new venture, located somewhere in Lekki Phase 1 on the island.

This venture is not a small affair at all by any standards, as several millions tending towards ₦50 million has already gone into it. The business has to do with "food" and to make it happen, the curvaceous mother of one has gone all out to make it a stand out one by all standards.

We hear that people would be very impressed by the whole set up, when they see it. Knowing Liz for being who she is, all the details, Interior etc would be top notch.

This new concern is in a one storey "edifice" that has set the lady back by tens of millions. It would be a food mart of the best standard, a food market, a first class restaurant and even a cold room with all the works. To make sure all things are in place and top notch, she went abroad to bring in all the superb equipments, which has also set her back by another several tens of millions again.

The way things are going, the new place and business should be opened sometime soon and knowing Lizzy also known as Leila very well, that opening whenever but would happen, is sure going to be with a lot of fanfare and razzmattazz and very grand by all standards.

Liz has been into shoe retailing for several years now, with 2 well known branches of the "Shoe Lounge" on Awolowo Road, Ikoyi and Murphis Plaza, Victoria Island, Lagos, though she later shutdown the V. Island store. At the height of the stores glory, it was the Mecca where all shoe lovers, aficionados and fashionistas used to converge when they needed to update their shoe wardrobes and we heard they used to have endless "shoegasms" by what was always on offering. So she surely must have made crazy money from that venture then.

Knowing that food business is a sure venture, we are sure that if this becomes an immediate hit, then Liz is already more assured of her place in the business stratosphere.

Kudos to her for her never say die attitude. 


Maybe she's trying to showcase that she's far more than just about baring her pierced boobies on reality TV BBN 2017. The quite stunning Tokunbo Idowu aka TBoss channeled her inner "Cleopatra" in a series of stunning pictures she only very recently just released.

For those who might not remember very well, Queen Cleopatra is the last active ruler of Ptolemaic Egypt of yore.

The famous "maneater" was a very brilliant queen who came on the throne at age the of 17. She was as beautiful and has brilliant as they come. One of the things she was very well known for was how to make quite an entrance when she had visitors to entertain, one of the ways she got the unfailing attention of Julius Caesar and Mark Antony amongst several others.

She had as her partner 2 of ancient Rome biggest men in Julius Caesar and Mark Antony.

She was very very well versed in mathematics, astronomy, philosophy and oratory. But also a very ruthless beauty, who wiped out her own family members.  Though she was the Queen of Egypt, her ancestry was actually Greek.

So maybe TBoss is channeling Cleopatra's best parts of beauty with intelligence alone and not any of the other attributes. Truth be told though, she's beautiful!!!! #tokunboidowu #tboss #bbn2017 #cleopatra

Check her out!!!!


Not a good one at all. While many were celebrating and rejoicing in adding a new year or the birth of a new child or celebrating one great achievements or the other, it was gloom and sadness for some and what a shame that was!

Former Nollywood star and now woman of God, Eucharia ANUNOBI, very sadly lost her only son, a 15 year old boy by name Raymond to death due to complications from Sickle Cell Anaemia.

The strong lady had gallantly nurtured the young boy alone, singlehandedly all of these years, until the evil hands of death snatched him away from her.

A fellow actress Remi Surutu, who also not too long ago lost her beautiful daughter to the cold hands of death, via the same Sickle Cell Anaemia, commiserated with Eucharia.

We deeply commiserate with the gallant lady over her sad loss, may the soul of the dearly departed find rest.


August 23, 2016 last year was when these 2 stars, that is funny lady Funke Akindele-Bello and her beau Abdul Rasheed-Bello aka JJC SKILLZ had their very private nuptial in London.

Until yesterday, when the finally released their wedding shots, none had ever seen the evidence of that delightsome day.

So finally after 365 days of marital bliss, it's so obvious these ones are so into each other, they have thought to release those nice pictures with Funke in her wedding white and London boy JJC in his tails for the public view.

We totally love how the couple have done their best to keep their marriage private and not necessarily much of a public affair.

We celebrate this anniversary with them and insha Allah would help celebrate many more in the future.

Picture credit is very obvious- neecee bosslady blog, who is said to be Funke's sister.

More pictures after the break.


She is a super gorgeous lady no doubt and has always been in your face, especially in terms of her style. Many say she is a fashionista many times over and to that we concur. That's none other than the tall and beautiful Nollywood star known as RUKKY SANDA.

So yesterday Wednesday, August 23 was her birthday and to mark the beautiful day, the "proud lioness" released some new quite stunning pictures whilst thanking God for another added year. Hear her-

"Extremely THANKFUL to God Almighty For being the absolute best for me! For being the father he is to me, words aren't enough to express my joy, happiness and gratitude #AnotherYear Immensely Blessed #noWorries #noComplaints #Living #free #FullOfJoy #foreverSmiling What more could I ask for?"

We wish her more Beautiful birthdays ahead.

More stunning pictures after the break.

Senator Ben Murray Bruce

This might not be the best of times for the very vocal Senator representing Bayelsa East Senatorial district in the oil rich state as constituents made up of students from the 3 local areas under his jurisdiction have threatened to recall him from non-performance since he was elected into the senate.

Senator Ben Murray Bruce has been accused by his own constituencies made up of students from Nembe, Ogbia and Brass Local Government Areas, the 3 LGAs under his senatorial district of neglect, non-performance and having no plans for their areas.

In a statement released and signed by the student leaders from the 3 local government areas, namely Ambrose Joseph from Brass, Samuel Tari from Nembe and Mark John from Ogbia, they made their grievances known to the world.

In their claims, they alleged that the very outspoken Senator since he was elected to represent them at the National Assembly has never for once visited his district. They claim that the man they voted to be their voice at the NA was not in a good relationship with his own people and that he has abdicated his constitutional responsibilities.

They buttressed their claims by saying that while the Senator donated relief materials to other parts of the state, he has neglected his first responsibility his own district, whose constitutuents are wallowing in poverty as the students are unable to pay their fees.

"Since Bruce became a Senator he has failed to look into the basic needs and challenges currently bedeviling the East Senatorial district, such as Education as most our students cannot access good quality education".

"He has failed to attract a single project to the district in terms of infrastructures, roads and others. He has continuously and delibrately ignored efforts by the people to create a working relationship that would bring out purposeful leadership for our people".

"He is yet to fulfill any of his campaign promises; painfully, he is an Abuja based Senator. He refuses to visit his constituency, except only once when he visited his hometown and couldn't even stay up to 4 hours".

"Sincerely, we are tired, other places are enjoying the benefits that come from having a national representative. Our case has been a curse rather than a blessing. We are just a district without a Senator. That is why we are intended to change that narrative".

The students consequently gave the Senator a 10 day ultimatum to either amend his ways or face a protest and recall process.

They subsequently advised the Senator to organise a town hall meeting with his constituents and take out time to tour his constituency.

Are these students making common sense at all?

Young designer "Sandrah Tubobereni", the creative director of her eponymous label TUBO has shown to the world that her future in the business of fashion is very bright.

One of the piece in the collection was that which was recently worn with grace by fashionista Toke Makinwa to the Glitz Style Awards in Accra Ghana.

The tailoring was top notch and the styling was totally on point.

Nigeria's own former supermodel by all standards and the most visible and most successful modeling icon till date, the one and only OLUCHI ORLANDI is taking Lagos, Nigeria by storm come this weekend.

Call date is Sunday, August 27, 2017 and the venue of congregation is none other than the Palms Shopping Mall, Oniru, Lekki, Lagos. OLUCHI and friends and guests etc would gather together to declare open something very dear to the heart of the model extraordinaire, whose life till today is the story of grass to awesome grace. Hers can be captioned "grace over adversity leading to ultimate triumph".

On the date, Oluchi would declare open her newest business, a lingerie outfit and not just that, she would open a brand by name "LuLu Lingerie Limited', which is being tagged as the "biggest multi-brand underwear, sleepwear and intimate apparel/accessories store" in LAGOS.

Since it's Oluchi business concern and her most visible to date, one should expect all the razzmatazz that should follow such declaration, with stars and celebrities and notable personalities in attendance in great number.

The LuLu brand, a name which was obviously coined from her name, is a Nigerian wholesaler and retailer of well known multi-brands of intimates, sleepwears and underwears. What this says is that, the ex-international supermodel has the authorisation of many of the world renowned global brands to be a wholesaler and a reseller of their brands in Nigeria.

According to Oluchi, "the brands that her store stocks focus on quality undergarments tailored to fit and adorn, the bodies of West African men and women.

This Lagos branch is the 3rd in the series of the stores, as the Abuja and Enugu branches have been opened for a while now and they have been doing well.

Some of the brands LuLu Lingerie Limited' stocks are the famous "Wonder Bra", Playtex, MaidenForm, Hanes, L'eggs just to mention a few.

Maybe soon, with this opening in LAGOS of the LuLu brand, the country might soon see the opening of a Victoria's Secret, Agent Provocateur, Anne Summers and La Senza or La Perla franchise too and maybe the world famous annual Victoria's Secret Fashion show would be hosted here!!! Lol.
