THE SUPER BAG THAT KILLED A MARRIAGE......

Just imagine that the quest to be one of the top babes in town, one that carries the latest bags, or that wears the newest most celebrated things in town was one of the major things, behind the collapse of what was supposed to be love forever after.

The lady in question and her beau had had one of the most celebrated wedding ceremony of the year, that had all the most happening people in attendance that year. The couple and their families went all out to make the occasion one that many would remember for quite a while, the ceremony "surprisingly" was held at a venue on the mainland (both were islanders), but unlike what obtains now, that it was a mainland event, didn't dissuade many from attending.

Young husband though relatively shy, was a happening dude. Apart from being tied to the dad's apron strings, dude also had his side job hosting fun lovers and the happening crowd in partnership with a tall, light and handsome friend of his and they raked in crazy money from their endeavor. Just imagine the money made from drinks alone, their hotspot then was on a road, where a bank has nearly taken over and street name could be renamed.

More juicy part after the break.

MERCY AIGBE & LANRE GENTRY DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SAGA CONTINUES



MR & MRS GENTRY

The last has not been heard in the wife pummeling saga that has renowned Nigerian actress, Mercy Aigbe-Gentry on the receiving end.

After the actress left her home days back vowing not to return to her husband ever again over allegations of battery and assault (domestic violence), the last seems not to have been heard about the saga.

At first after the beautiful actress accused her husband of persistent violence and battery and claims that's why she wouldn't ever return to her matrimonial home, the husband in his own counter claim, as said he was not a wife batterer and as never ever been one, but now went on to accuse his wife of persistent infidelity.

The drama from what is the latest on it is that, there is the news going about on the possibility that Mr. Gentry might soon be sued or prosecuted by the state government for domestic violence. According to the gist, the agency saddled with the protection of women in the state, Lagos State Ministry of WOMEN affairs, has already begun preliminary investigation into the allegation of battery and assault depending on the outcome, Mr. Gentry might have a case on his head.

After years of pummeling nonstop, Mercy finally said no more to the drama last week. She is said to have been the one that reported the case of battery and assault herself at the ministry.

THAT ELEGUSHI'S CLOSE TO N200 MILLION NAIRA HUMONGOUS ROLLS ROYCE

OBA SAHEED ADEMOLA ELEGUSHI

THE KING & HIS QUEEN

It's the season of ROLLS ROYCE or so it seems. Every liquid man worth his salt seems bent on acquiring one or two or three as a standard to separate the boys from the men!

There are the likes of the great, super stylish Otunba Michael and Olasubomi Balogun, who we hear has a few in his fleet, some have even speculated between 3 & 5 both in Nigeria and abroad.

Just like the Mercedes G63 wagon, which is gradually tending towards becoming "pure water" in Nigeria, which everyone who has a sizeable bank account and investment now sees as a must have to declare their positions, very soon that class act of a car-the Rolls Royce, known all over the world might soon become a prerequisite too.

Imagine that we saw one very recently at a lounge, where the owner and friend came to, to have drinks while eating Nkwobi!

For those very very liquid, one of the ways to differentiate levels now is not having the gradually going common G63 wagon ($150,000 dollars) that's close to N60 million Naira, so to distinct clearly men from boys, seriously made men now do G65 ($360000 dollars) that's more than N140 million plus, which is nearly thrice the cost of the G63, you need to know for you to know the difference.

So also in the Rolls Royce class, there are boys and there are bigger men. In the class of bigger men is that one owned by his royal majesty, the Elegushi of Lagos, Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi, Kusenla III aka Gushi 1, the nickname those close to him, prefers, but that they pronounce as "Gucci".

THE HOUSE OF GOD IS NOT THE HOUSE OF JOKE

video
Chose O' Israel who your God is today, is the God or is it Belial?

We came across the video above by a pastor of a church and we thought it was great and good for us to watch and then respond.

The main thrust of his strong message, which many who understands would refer to as strong meat is that "the house of God, that is church is been brought to ridicule" & that the altar is been desecrated. Some who don't understand spiritual matters would be quick, to poo poo or belittle what the man has voiced out. In this era of conformity and blending, cracking jokes in the church is seen as nothing, some even claims that God is a joker! A very absurd and terrible thing to say about God, for it denotes unseriousness.

The times we are living in now is supposedly the era of grace, so some things are supposedly allowed especially, many of those things considered as sacred is now brought so low. To not conform is seen as being stiff.

The pastor went on to buttress his points, asking if any comic/comedian can go to the shrine of Osun the water goddess or the mosque or a place where the Moslems worship to be cracking jokes?

It is that time as a Christian that those who profess to be one, need to carry their flags? They need to speak out and show on which side of the divide that they are standing on?

Is this like the call made by Moses at a time on Israel that afterwards judgement came immediately, when Korah, Dathan and Abiram did what was despicable?

Whose side are you on?

What's your sincere thought about what the pastor has raised?  

Should comedians be performing in churches ? 

HAJIA BOLA SHAGAYA AND THAT HUMONGOUS GIFT TO THE EMIR

EMIR MUHAMMADU SANUSI II

BOLA SHAGAYA

KOLA KARIM
There's nothing like having good friends, especially made ones at that, those that are dependable and can be relied upon at anytime. An old saying of the sages even spoke about friends/friendship when it said show me your friends and I can tell you, the kind of person you are. In terms of friends, when it comes to the lady of timber and caliber, in the person of Hajia Bola Shagaya, she has always had them and they are always the very powerful and the highly influential, always occupying positions of extraordinary importance.

We remember very well that during the reign of Dr. Goodluck Ebele Azikwe Jonathan, his wife Madam Peace Jonathan and the very stylish businesswoman of great repute, were the best of friends. According to the unconfirmed legend, it was even Hajia that used to take the former first lady then, to the best of places to do her shopping around the world. Same way Mma Bakassi, Senator Florence Ita-Giwa and the richest black African woman on earth, Mrs. Folorunsho Alakija have a chummy relationship too, and gets to fly around the world together on trips to Lebanon and other exotic places.

But immediately after that government was sent packing by the current incumbent, madam (Hajia) recoiled back into her shell and quietly kept her distance especially away from unnecessary razzmattazz, making a few to feel at a point that she might have been facing some hard times.

The report on the snub of the Ooni of Ife, Adimula Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi by the Oba of Lagos, the Olowo Eko, Oba Rilwan Akiolu met a lot of very negative reaction, with many voicing their heartfelt opinions and some openly castigating the Oba of Lagos for bad judgement and outright disrespect of a very revered stool.

In an attempt at explaining what actually happened on the day, and by extension debunking the stories of any FEUD or disrespect of any kind, the Oba of Lagos's representative's explanations has raised more questions than answers.

TOP THESPIAN CELEBRATED MARRIAGE ON THE VERGE OF COLLAPSE

It was a very much publicised union that was well celebrated on the pages of the papers and very well reported on the social media sometime ago, with much pomp and pageantry, but alas according to what we hear now, it is already on the verge of collapse, except something very drastic is done about it and quickly too for that matter! And this is just in how long????

According to a particular gist, the marriage itself in the first instance was stage managed! Thespian while married was seen in private, in very very cosy relationship with that top very married government official known to always have dalliances with the hottest chics in town.

OBAS AT WAR. OBA OF LAGOS VS. OONI OF IFE.


OONI OF IFE

OBA OF LAGOS

The two are known as 1st class kings of repute, especially as the stool they represent are highly revered. The Ooni, being the Obaluaye of Ife is respected as the overall king of kings in the South Western part of Nigeria, he is so well respected that other kings from the South West accord him the 1st position in their hierarchy, this is by virtue of history and the importance accorded to the stool he occupies.

The Oba of Lagos, also referred to as the Olowo Eko (the rich one of Lagos) also occupies a note worthy stool too. By virtue of him being the paramount ruler amongst the kings in the state alone, that stands him out.

Whilst the Ooni Adimula stool is occupied by a former businessman in the person of Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, who is in his 40s, kabiyesi the Oba of Lagos, is a retired AIG of Police, in the person of Oba Riliwan Akiolu, known for his no nonsense attitude and approach,.....who says and acts it, as he sees it and he is not known for comprise all.

So at an occasion yesterday, where Oba Rilwan Babatunde Akiolu and the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Nnanyelugo Alfred Nnaemeka Achebe were already seated. In comes, the Ooni, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi. Normally because of who he is and being the paramount ruler of the Yorubas, his entrance is always heralded by much razzmattaz and dazzling display of praise and colours which always adds pomp to his entrance. This well practised, choreographed entry ritual could and might intimidate others who normally do not have such displays often; coming in the Ooni did what was considered right, as he went to acknowledge the other royal fathers already seated, only for the Oba of Lagos, to totally dismiss the highly revered Ooni with a wave of the hand, like a nobody!

Shock, embarrassment and shame all fought and jostled for attention immediately.  And this was played out in public! What could have warranted such open display of disdain? Could the Oba of Lagos have felt that he was upstaged or what? Was there already a lingering tussle of any kind between the 2 before? Or could it have been that the Oba of Lagos, feels that the kind of prominence enjoyed by the Ooni, and the respect from around the world since he rose to the throne, from all over the seems too much? Has there been an encounter before that warranted such a display?

Even if there was any at all, that they both are prominent royal fathers of note, couldn't the more elderly Oba of Lagos in his 60s have dealt with it with more decorum and in private?

The questions above and many others are the types that have since sprung up since the unroyal and unpalatable actions of Oba of Lagos. Many already feels that it's an open display of the desecration of a highly revered throne and crown.

One hopes that the elders in the land, would quickly come together to resolve the issues before they escalate further.

THE LEGEND OF THE GODFATHER REVISITED




We all know who this platform normally refers to as the godfather. This extraordinary, the Kogi born deep pocket was one personality that showed all other rich and famous in the country what wealth or better still a colossal amount of money in the hands of an enjoyable fellow could do.

Many ladies, for he had his spec, enjoyed his great largesse and favour and became millionaires in their own right for it. The testaments to his goodwill liters here and there and they are not consigned to the African continent alone.

Legend had it then, that when the going was still extremely good (though still okay), that was before this particular so called "wizard-hunting" government came into power to start scrutinizing and investigating everything, whenever the godfather moves, he moved then with several bales of cash in hard currency- Pounds, Dollars, Euros in bags and with intimidating security personnel to guard him. Shuttling in any of the several private jets available to him across the continents. When the elements were still gathered in support of the godfather, to mention Naira then in his company, was like showing your status.

When the godfather enters a store, a lounge, an hotel or just about anywhere, it was like Christmas day had come earlier than it should and the whiff of raw cash makes everyone go gaga turning them to potty in his hands.

To buttress our point more effectively, the godfather was in America at a point and met that very famous stunning lady, that is a major feature in that reality television series in America, with the awesome body. He found out upon introduction that, apart from appearances on the series, she was also into event management to augment her earnings. So they exchanged contacts.

UNLEASHING CY THE RAMPANT! THE EVOLUTION OF YOUNG GULLIBLE DAMSEL

Imagine that the damsel we are introducing to you is as gorgeous as they come. One of the very best way to describe her is that she's stunningly beautiful and she knows it, in fact she would win a beauty contest hands down any day.

Wherever she goes and even in the midst of other beautiful and sexy ones, she always manages to stand out. She's always the cynosure of all eyes. And because of the attention she gets, she revels in it, swims in it and enjoys it with abandon.

Cy is a shortened version of her name, still in her 20s and a graduate at that. She's very stylish and sexy just to add to the whole aura of attraction, like some would say, she knows what the time says.

COLOURS, GLAM, GOOD GATHERING AT THE WOMANRISING 2017

UGOMA ADEGOKE-convener


RICHARD MOFE DAMIJO-RMD


UGOMA ADEGOKE & TAIWO AJAI-LYCETT

As expected of Ugoma Adegoke, the boss at Zebraliving and the convener of the annual gathering of super talented women known by all as "Woman Rising"; which is a music concert and arts weekender, packaged as a series of events with spotlight on musical and creative/artistic women, aimed as a networking platform, this year's event packaged a major punch and razzle dazzled as usual, like it has always done.

It was as colourful as expected, very fun in all ramifications, with many gorgeous and stylish ladies in attendance and a few very hunkish men in tow, to give their other halves supports, while some just came along to have good fun too, it actually delivered on all counts.

The series of events was over 2 days, Saturday and Sunday, April 8 & 9, 2017, at 2 exclusive but different venues, The Wheatbaker Hotel & Federal Palace Hotel, both on the island, Ikoyi & Victoria Island to be more precise.

There was good music in abundance, fun chit-chats, good skits/comedy as provided by the incredible Chigurl and all round great entertainment. This 2017 edition was the 7th in the series.

One of the guests at the event was PR impressario and author Toni Kan, who also is the editor-in-chief at Sabinews. Some of the others we saw were the likes of Herbert Wigwe, MD/CEO of Access Bank Plc, the hunk known and better addressed as RMD, the super talented duo of Lala Akindoju & Chigurl as compere and comedienne, Ego Boyo and very many others.

Check out the incredible pictures of the happenstance as taken by the duo of Adesokan and Anazia, below.

Kudos to the convener, the super gorgeous and good hearted Ugoma Adegoke, for another excellent event, which continues to get better and better every year. So 2018, here they come.

Over 40 more pictures below.

SAD LOSS FOR PR IMPRESSARIO MAGNUS ONYIBE

KIKAOSE EBIYE ONYIBE

Not the very best of time presently in the household of quintessential PR guru and erstwhile Commissioner for Information for Delta State during the regime of Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, in the person of Magnus Ebiye-Onyibe.

The soft spoken man, who is very well respected by all, lost is adorable, very beautiful and highly cerebral 18 year old daughter to the very cold hands of death, some days back, Wednesday, April 12, 2017 to be more precise.

Her untimely demise came via complications from a ruptured appendix, and a subsequent unsuccessful surgery at a private hospital, Gold Cross Hospital, Bourdillon Road, Ikoyi, LAGOS.

Kikaose Ebiye Onyibe but better called Kika by family and friends, prior to her death was a 2nd year undergraduate of law at the University of Birmingham in the United kingdom. She's said to have been a God fearing young lady, whose good passion for God, even led her to lead a fellowship comprising of her mates.

If not for death, Kika would have been celebrating her 19th birthday come April 29, 2017 being born April 29, 1998. She's survived by her doting parents, Magnus and Helen Ebiye Onyibe and 2 siblings, Sopuluchukwu and Ebubechukwu.

Service of songs/commemoration service is slated for today, Monday, April 17, 2017 and internment follows tomorrow, Tuesday, April 18, 2017 at Ebony Vaults From 10 am.

May her gentle soul rest in peace.

AHMED UWHUBETINE IS BACK IN TOWN




Celebrated man about town, the one and only socialite known and addressed as Ahmed Uwhubetine, owner of the now defunct 1145 is back in town and as usual and as expected of him, being the happy go lucky fellow unparalleled, he sauntered into SIP lounge last night, Friday, April 15, 2017 to much hailing and back-slapping just to relax with a few friends.

The dude who is much loved by many of his pals, had been away for quite a while, especially after that accusation that came up sometime ago. Though that accusation was vigorously denied by many of his friends, the fun loving dude still made sure to keep a very low profile for a long time, making many to speculate unnecessarily.

Now that he has come back and has appeared for many to see, maybe the good times has begun to roll in again and he has begun to "ball" in the high powered way as usual all over again, because like they always say about Ahmed, there's never a dull moment when this artistic man is in the mix. He knows how to have fun and have it real good.

We heard Sujimoto and a few friends were around too.

Welcome back bro.

You have been sorely missed!

WOULD THUNDER"BOLT" STRIKE IN LAGOS FOR LAGOS @50?



The question above is what the organisers are doing their very best to answer. But as it is right now, all things being equal, the Jamaican sprinter known to have obliterated and annihilated all comers to his throne in the last few years, the fleet footed one, who would give a Cheetah or a racehorse, a run for their money, the personality known and referred to by the name Usain "the thunderbolt" Bolt, is getting ready, getting set, preparing to hit the shores of Lagos, the state of aquatic excellence, where the man of action, Akinwunmi Ambode controls the rein of affairs very effectively.

THE RISE AND RISE OF SEYI TINUBU, ASIWAJU's ENIGMATIC SON

Sincerely what else would one have expected from the most visible son of the famous Jagaban Borgu, in the person of  Seyi Tinubu?

SEYI & DAD-ASIWAJU BOLA AHMED TINUBU
The son of the amiable Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a top chieftain of the APC, showed that he had arrived on the scene with his one of a kind wedding that took place in Nigeria and extended to Lake Como, in Milan, Italy last year (2016), when he took as his partner for life, the delightsome and highly cerebral former Miss Layal Jade Holm now Tinubu.

Since that eventful nuptial, which had the creme of the society in attendance, though it was by far a much muted ceremony than what was expected by many, due to the fact that the parents especially that of Seyi being very high ranking members of the ruling APC party, didn't want to be seen as being ostentatious in the midst of the economic downturn in Nigeria, so they decided to tone down on everything. A quick and impromptu engagement/traditional wedding took place, before the white wedding which was done abroad, with only a "few" in attendance. The few here means just about a hundred (100) people!

Main.

PROPHET AYODELE FAYOSE THE MAN WHO SEES TOMORROW

Governor Ayodele Fayose


The above caption rightly describes the Executive Governor of the good state of Ekiti.

Prophets all over the world are very well known for one of their great gifts/abilities, which is that ability to see or foretell the future. That ability doesn't just end there alone, it allows them also to be able to rightly understand the things of the past too, and to be able to decipher what the God is saying now, so all of these abilities and more are great and good and important, that is of course if and when the prophet is actually a true mouthpiece of the God.

LIKE A PHOENIX, FOLORUNSHO COKER RISES AGAIN BECOMES DG NTDC


It has been celebration galore and good back slapping since the Federal Government last Friday, March 31, 2017 announced via the SSA, Femi Adesina the names of new helmsmen for some Government agencies and parastatals across the nation.

Amongst the names that was conspicuously mentioned and was given a very important portfolio to man, was none other than the erstwhile, Commissioner for Tourism and Culture in Lagos State, the very debonair, Folorunsho Coker.

At his former post handling Tourism and Culture for the state of aquatic excellence, he acquitted himself very well and showed unprecedented dynamism in handling the affairs of that ministry; people had never had it that great before, so when he left abruptly many were quite taken aback. Though that apparent abruptness took many by surprise, many of those who knew him well, knew it was just a matter of time, before he would bounce back with something as equally important as what he had just left.

Now like the proverbial ram, that withdrew back a bit or that took a reverse track, his wasn't out of fear, but he only went back to gain more momentum (power), so as to launch back, more determined and more focused than before.

Folly Coker, like many who know him prefer to call and address him, as risen like a phoenix and taken on a new life entirely and would be the one to manage our tourism and culture outlook across the nation, his short time doing same with Lagos State Government must have spoken so well about him, to warrant this new appointment.

So we expect the formidable fellow to hit the ground running, while bringing sanity to an agency that has faced loads of controversies and unnecessary distractions of late, not only that though, he is expected to totally resuscitate the life of the same brand, for the best of the country.

We wish him the very best of luck in this task and congratulations.

Congratulations.
