Triple Chocolate Meltdown - A Sweet Treat

Posted in: ,

This is a short post. The Triple Chocolate Meltdown desert is my weakness whenever we go out to eat. Once I see it on the menu, dinner looks even better and what I'm having for my sweet treat afterwards is settled. Doesn't it make you want to lick the screen? :)

Femi Fani-Kayode Blames Oscar Pistorius's Girlfriend

Posted in: ,
Oscar Pistorius and Reeva Steencamp

Not only did Femi Fani-Kayode blame Reeva Steenkamp for her death, he also belittled her life and work, labeling her with all those names insecure "I must be an alpha male by force" types use for beautiful and/or opinionated women. Fani-Kayode is a former Nigerian minister, and still speaks and engages in some online political and social activism. He also seems to be a religious type, and some people consider him a moral role model. Well, as they say, we learn everyday. What a beauty social media is.

Femi Fani-Kayode wrote the message below on his Facebook page after the Feb. 14 event involving Oscar Pistorius and his now-dead girlfriend, Reeva Steencamp.

I have little doubt that Pistorius, who was a great achiever, a living icon, the greatest and best known African sportsman in world history and an absolute gentleman, was provoked into a murderous rage by his pretty little lover and that she played on his insecurities and inadequacies. These are the classic traits of the biblical “strange woman”- the destroyer of men’s dreams and destinies.

Only God knows who sent this creature from the sea into this great man’s life just to destroy it. For Pistorius it is all over. In one moment of blind rage he has lost everything and he has brought shame, disgrace, sorrow and infamy upon his name and that of his family. The blood he has shed will speak against him and his lineage forever. And all because of a sexy and pretty little model who the devil sent his way.

May the Lord deliver us all from the daughters of Jezebel, Delilah, Athalia and Yemoja".

Beyonce Talks Miscarriage and Motherhood in HBO Documentary

Beyonce and Blue Ivy 

Beyonce's HBO documentary, Life Is But a Dream, is premiering today at 9 p.m. EST. In the run up to the show, screen shots of Beyonce carrying Blue Ivy have been released as  seen in the picture above. According to USMagazine, Beyonce also talks about an earlier miscarriage and how she got over it through writing songs.

"About two years ago, I was pregnant for the first time," the 17-time Grammy Award winner says. "And I heard the heartbeat, which was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life. I picked out names," Beyonce continues. "I envisioned what my child would look like . . . I was feeling very maternal."

Sadly, something went wrong in the early stages of her pregnancy. "I flew back to New York to get my check up -- and no heartbeat," Beyonce says. "Literally the week before I went to the doctor, everything was fine, but there was no heartbeat."

I'm happy for her that the next pregnancy was a success. She looks great with Blue Ivy, who BTW, looks more like JayZ, the dad, than Beyonce :)

No to N4b Mission House for the Nigerian First Lady

Posted in:


More and more, it seems that civil society and activism and Nigeria are being revived, and I can't wait till they become effective and powerful. The 2013 Budget currently before the Nigerian house of assembly has a provision for N4BN to build a Mission house where other First Ladies would be hosted if and when they visit Nigeria. I say rubbish! What about all the hotels and government guesthouses all over Abuja?

Some people under the Women Arise initiative have marched in protest against this. According to reports,
the group was led by Dr. Joe Okei Odumankin to the office of Lagos State’s Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola. Joining him were Festus Keyamo, Mrs. Abosede Ransome Kuti, and the Director of Gender and Development Action, Mrs. Ada Agina Ude. Good on them.

N4BN can do so much for the women, in terms of creating jobs, small capital, etc. Building an edifice for a handful of women is very wasteful and unnecessary. I hope the Senate and the House strike out that provision before passing the budget.

Osi Umenyiora Engaged to Leila Lopes - February Man Candy #16

Posted in: ,

Nigerian U.S football star Osi Umenyiora is today's February man candy. Ositadimma “Osi” Umenyiora (31) plays the defensive end for the New York Giants and is involved in philanthropic efforts in Nigeria and AIDS awareness education in Angola and U.K. But don't get your hopes up, Osi is engaged to former Miss Universe, Angolan Leila Lopes.

Osi and Leila announced their engagement via Twitter after spending a week in Europe with friends and family visiting such sights as Rome, Paris, Monte Carlo and posting photos from Twitter and instagram. The couple had to keep their relationship under wraps till now because of Leila's job. They were first reported to be dating back in November 2012 at her handover, but still kept it low-key till this engagement. I like their style. Enjoy pics below;
