Kefee's Last Video + Nigerian Community In Las Vegas Asks For Help To Return Her Body Home

Posted in: , ,

I was really shocked and sad when I woke to the news that Kefee died. I hear some of you who are not happy about my earlier unverified reports and I apologize again. I will be doing more 'gutter press', it is only that way the 'publicists' etc will send me their statements. That said, I'll try to be sensitive.

The following statement was made to the Nigerian community in Las Vegas, by the president, Mr Festus Ebonka. He announced the death of Kefee at the Desert Springs Hospital in Las Vegas, after her heartbeat stopped naturally. And he is appealing to all Nigerians to help take her remains back home, and says her husband is devastated and not ready to speak yet. [Via Chi Chikelu of African Beats LV based in Las Vegas.]

Also, a commenter on my report of Kefee's death shared a video of Kefee that had me tearing up at how fickle life can be. He also had the following correction and insight into the last days of Kefee in the US and before she went into the coma that led to her death. He wrote;

Woman Who Started the Petition to Comb Blue Ivy's Hair Says It Was All A Joke

Posted in: , ,

This is the picture of Blue Ivy's hair that got Jasmine Toliver starting a change.org petition to have the hair combed. Now she says via her FB page that it was all a joke. Really? SMH...

My joke took off anything I guess with "sign a petition" is funny if I would've said "sign a petition to save Lebron James hairline" that would've took off too! It's a clever joke.! Nobody came up with before. These blogs and websites are doing the most.

My hair looks like blue ivy right now except its moisturized and detangled. Yes I'm natural.! Have a seat to most people. I can care less about Beyoncé or jay z but I do care for the kids hair.

People make nothing out of something. I love being black! I'm proud my bloodline runs from Africa. I'm proud of my own tightly coiled kinks. I'm proud of my big lips and brown skin. People just need to breathe and chill out.

Jennifer Lopez and Maksim Chmerkovskiy - A Match Made in Tabloid Heaven?

Posted in: , ,

Jennifer Lopez is reported to be dating Maksim Chmerkovskiy, one of the professional dancers on Dancing With The Stars TV Show. I watched the Entertainment Tonight evening show yesterday and I was just laughing my head off at how the anchors presented this news as the "match made in tabloid heaven".

Why? Because there is no shred of evidence to support this so-called relationship except the say-so of some online tabloids and bloggers.

Supposedly the two got to know each other after they performed together at the 2013 American Music Awards last November, and that friendship has now grown into love.

Posted in: , , , ,

Tonto Dike is a well known actress and has now began to make her mark in the Nigerian music industry. The actress been part of the production of many Nollywood films though her appearance in movies seems to have dwindled in the past year as her music career took off. Only a few days ago, Tonto celebrated her birthday, and was then announced by DBanj, head of DB Records, as the Duchess of that label.

Tonto Dike is very active on social media where she often refers to herself as POKO and it seems that is the name she prefers for her music. The actress cum singer who has released three singles and performed them live on stage on a couple of occassions is to be known now as POKO LEE as one of the LEE Family. All members of D’banj’s record label, DB Records are to take the Lee last name for their stage names.

At this point, I can't help asking, which do you prefer? Tonto the actress, or Poko Lee the singer?

Sex Education For Married Women, Have You Read This?

Posted in: , , ,

The text from the picture above is suppossedly an extract from a sex education school textbook for girls, printed in the 50s or 60's to help women to enjoy sex with their husband and keep their home.

However, according to those that know better, the extract is a fabrication. It didn't surface until long after the text began circulating by email and is "clearly a mock-up". It is just possible that it dates from the 50s - presumably as a satire on contemporary images of the ideal housewife. On balance it's likely to be far more recent, however. It is said  to have been circulating in faxed form since the 1980s.

Read the text in full below, and laugh. Or maybe not. In this day and age, some people still think this is how sex in marriage should be. Do you agree?
