How I was setup and ordered to be given 24 lashes at NDLEA-Baba Suwe

Baba Suwe is yet to recover from the damage resulting from  his arrest for suspected cocaine smuggling  .The veteran yoruba comedian and actor has maintained his innocence and is still demanding for an apology from the NDLEA (National Drug Law Enforcement Agency ),to help salvage his reputation.In an interview with Nigerian Tribune, he revealed how it all started
It is a long story. What they did tarnished my image. It really hurt me. Theatre is the only way I make money and when my films hit Idumota, it makes the most sales in the industry. I make money from my rental business and as a master of ceremony within and outside Nigeria. The incident affected all that.
The trip I wanted to make when the incident happened was for a friend’s baby’s naming ceremony. I was asked to be the MC at the christening ceremony. I just got back from London about a month before then, from a movie production with Sanyeri. I was at the airport that day with my sibling and a friend.

Regina Askia volunteers to work at US Ebola Centre

Nollywood actress/ beauty queen turned nurse ,Regina Askia has taken a brave decision to work at a US Ebola Center.Regina who works at a hospital in NewYork  was asked to look for volunteers to work at the center, but on a second thought, the mother of 3 decided to join as a volunteer .She announced on facebook
My job was looking for Nurses to volunteer for the Ebola center which was moved from our building to another location. My male colleagues said they would do it for 200 dollars per hour, ....C'mon Regina , gotta get on the team...they said. I was not smiling (I am captain of my 3 kid team). Not one female nurse volunteered (lol). We ALL had to demonstrate proper use of PPE equipment and be proficient with the Ebola protocol. I was full of thoughts as I watched the display, hoods, masks, gowns, boots....almost like a nightmare. Home news had it that Nigerians washed their hands, didn't hug as much, monitored their temps and on the first signs of malaise drank the ORT (oral rehydration therapy) until symptoms passed. Were we once again trying to kill mosquitoes with bazookas? I wasn't going to wait to find out. In a daze I got with the program to become "an Ebola ready Nurse". More power to all the nurses on the grind - Goodluck!!

"President Jonathan doesn't Give Me Money"-Ibinabo Fiberisima

Ibinabo Fiberisima who just got re-elected as President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria for a second term,has addressed some issues regarding her tenure and what she still plans to do.She told Punch

 “President Goodluck Jonathan has done a lot for Nollywood. He has helped us tremendously. Maybe some people are thinking that he is giving me money. But he is not doing that. They forget that there is a process you must pass through to get money from government as a Nollywood professional, not necessarily as an actor. Movie producers, directors, editors, scriptwriters, even costumiers have all been able to get access to funds to train themselves. People should learn and understand what is going on in the film industry before attacking other people.”

Ladies Only! Must Read Advice by La La Anthony

(Shuts door at guys) Ladies, this is a must read ...La La Anthony is an actress, writer, host ,, a mother and wife of a basketball star and one of Kim Kardashian's best friends.To mark the 10th Anniversary of the Circle of Sisters Expo in New York City, she gave some powerful advice to the ladies and stressed the importance of having your own..no matter how small....
I’m not being negative but it’s something to be said that, your man knows that if something goes down, you would be okay if you had to walk away. And that’s powerful. That is powerful. So it’s just something to think about. I say, come into a relationship with your own. Everyone is not meant to run a Fortune 500 company, but just have something that you own. A clothing line, a hobby, something that you’re passionate about so that your whole world doesn’t revolve around a man. That’s not a good thing.
For me the whole ‘Basketball Wife’ thing, it’s tricky.

Amazing! I found a special way to show I care ....

Ever get the feeling that you don’t take enough time to tell the people you care about how much you care?

Yeah, I thought so. I do too!

In this generation where most of us are caught-up with the latest technology from BBM, Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp we don’t take out time to do something extra SPECIAL for the ones we say we love- we would rather just say “HBD dear GGMUB ”.
