TOOLZ ONIRU & MAI ATAFO DAZZLES ON THE DOUBLE COVER OF Y!NAIJA


It has been an amazing 2013, for the cover personalities on the new cover of Y!Naija. That's talking about the heavenly shaped Toolz 'the body' Oniru and the only fashion stylist we know from Nigeria and by extension Africa, in the person of Ohimai Atafo, who is the Creative egg-head behind MAI. 


Kudos to the guys at Y! Naija for this bumper edition. We particularly love the captions for the different covers, for Ohimai Atafo, it is MAI OF STEEL, channeling that incredible and much loved Super Hero, known to all as Superman; For the shapely Tolu 'Toolz' Oniru, it has been an incredible year, which made the caption for her cover- The year of TOOLZ- very succinct. 

This is issue 14 of the award winning magazine for the young at heart, all through the year the publishers of the magazine have kept their readers glued to the several editions and always eagerly waiting for the new edition. 

Check out the release from them- Toolz, like never before! Y! Magazine issues double cover to end the

CAN YOUR MAN LEAVE YOU STRANDED AT THE REGISTRY 6 GOOD TIMES?


The above question is the million dollar question we would love many ladies to give at least an answer to. Can a man (your lover, boyfriend, man friend etc) whomsoever he is leave you stranded at the wedding registry, not once, not twice, not thrice...but, 4, 5, 6 freaking times. 

What kind of a man would do that to someone you have professed to love above all others especially more than the whole world. Imagine the preparations that must have gone towards the day, imagine the shock of getting to the venue or better put registry and it came to your turn and your name was getting called repeatedly. Imagine the shock that would be on the face of the witnesses that must have gone to the registry with you, just imagine how shocked the parents would be if out of joy they had thought to go witness their child getting hooked, the  sheer embarrassment of it all. 

Let's give you a clearer perspective to ponder on. Imagine you have dated your so called heartthrob all of 10 plus years. Main reason you have stayed that long must be because you have an end in sight, thinking that at the end of it all, he would make a good woman out of you, you have over the years gladly accepted abuses and all sorts of insults. The other reason could be that having gone through ten plus years together and having seen it all, what more storm can we not weather together. It surely must have been love, even if it wasn't at the beginning. 

The sheer madness of it all to crown the insult well well, he now does not appear at the registry, 6 different times. Even after you had had the so called introduction.  What could this lady have done to you to warrant such humiliation?

If it were you, what would you have done? Remember this truly happened.

WHAT'S UP WITH BIMBO OKOYA-UREY'S MARRIAGE?

BIMBO OKOYA-UREY

Bimbo is one of the most cerebral daughters of Chief Rasaq Akanni Okoya. In fact she's the man's first daughter. The gorgeous lady is the CEO at one of her dad's group of companies, AOMS Marketing Solutions. 

A couple of years ago, she and her handsome Liberian husband had tied the knot at what was then one of the weddings of the year. There was so much fanfare at the nuptial, that it was obvious that no expense was spared. Like most of the Okoya's event, the ceremony was at the very expansive Oluwanishola Estate, along the Lekki-Epe expressway, Lagos. 

The sweet natured lady who abhors the limelight or publicity like a plague we hear has not found her journey in marriage as fantastic as she had thought it would be. We hear that the love relationship might have broken down irretrievably, instead of it to be a for better, for worse, for richer or poorer journey, the marriage is said to have supposedly hit the rocks and husband and wife have apparently decided to go their separate ways. 

According to the unconfirmed report since the center could not hold together again like it should, why pretend at making it work. 

A very said one indeed.

AIGBOJE AIG-IMOKHUEDE'S MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR (NOT LESS THAN N500 MILLION) SEND OFF PARTY

MARIAH CAREY
GEORGE W. BUSH
AIGBOJE AIG-IMOKHUEDE
DOM PERIGNON ROSE

It was a glorious send off for the outgoing Managing Director/CEO of Access Bank PLC very recently. The bank management in showing how good their outgoing MD was to them didn't spare any expense whatsoever to send off their MD of many years in the person of the bespectacled Mr. Aigboje Aig-Imokhuede at a party that held at the expansive Eko Hotel main hall very recently. 


Many have come out to voice the fact that it  must have been an opportunity for money to be laundered by those that organized the one of a kind shindig for the man that brought so much joy and profit to a bank that many years ago, was not even near the the list of the top 10 banks in Nigeria, but now as the man is leaving the bank that has become one of the top 5 banks in the country in terms of any yardsticks (asset base, profitability, branch network etc) you might want to use to grade the best banks in the country.

PASTOR CHRIS OKOTIE SUPPOSEDLY DECLARES THAT ALL CATHOLICS ARE HELL BOUND


We weren't there, but according to PM News controversial Pastor of the Household church, Pastor Chris Okotie has come out to say all Catholics are hell bound. 

We have reproduced the report here verbatim. 

All Catholics in the world will go to hell because they worship Satan and are led by an Anti-Christ Pope who is a friend to the devil, Nigeria’s controversial preacher and former presidential candidate, Chris Okotie, told his congregation on Sunday, leaving members bewildered.
Fifty-five year old Okotie, while preaching in his Household of God Church in Ikeja area of Lagos, western Nigeria, said the Catholic church is “a counterfeit church set up by Satan” and that Catholics “bow to idols and crucify Jesus every Sunday when they eat bread claiming they are eating Jesus’ body.”
“They are not Christians and have never been,” Okotie told a stunned congregation.
“They don’t know Jesus. They believe that when they eat bread on Sundays, they are eating the body of Jesus. It’s ritual,” Okotie said.
He said Pope Francis is an Anti-Christ who does the job of the devil and that time is fast approaching when the Catholic church will pledge allegiance to Satan.
“The pope is an Anti-Christ and the Catholic church will soon declare for Satan. This is the end of times,” Okotie erupted.

HON. OPEYEMI BAMIDELE DECLARES FOR THE LABOUR PARTY IN EKITI STATE


This is not the best of times for the APC in Ekiti State as one of the party's aggrieved members in the person of one of their most influential former members has left them to pitch his tent with a rival party-the Labour Party.

The member of the Federal House of Representatives, defected in order for him to pursue his Gubernatorial ambition in Ekiti State come 2014. 

Prior to this his formal defection, he had had a running battle with his former party hierarchy over his ambition. The party had expected he was going to step down his ambition for the incumbent's 2nd term to which he didn't agree. Now with this defection to the Labour, the massive support that the APC used to enjoy in Ekiti State might have been reduced drastically, since Honourable Bamidele seemingly enjoys a very massive support base in Ekiti. 

So a major loss for the APC in Ekiti, might have become a major gain for Labour in the same state. So would Opeyemi Bamidele be joining the Iroko(Dr. Olusegun Mimiko) as the 2nd Labour Governor in Nigeria? Or would the incumbent ride on to a victory irrespective of Bamidele's defection & support? Time will surely tell.
