For His Number 1 Family - Peter Okoye Gives Reasons He Was Absent at Brother's Wedding

Posted in: , , ,

Peter has continued sharing pictures of himself as not involved in his elder brother Jude's wedding, causing some of his fans to question his loyalty and priorities.

While he had previously kept quiet, he has now replied to some of the queries on social media. For those that outrightly insult him, he has BLOCKED them.

In his replies to the criticisms, Peter says his "number 1 family for now" is the one he built. He defends his actions by pointing out that a parent has to cater more to his children than his siblings, asking, "which blood is thicker than the 1 of my children?"

What do you think of his reasons? Read his tweet rants below...

The Miraculous Deliverance Of Oga Jona - A Short Story By Chimamanda Adichie

Posted in: , ,

As soon as he opened his eyes, he felt it. A strange peace, a calm clarity. He stretched.  Even his limbs were stronger and surer. He looked at his phone. Thirty-seven new text messages – and all while he was asleep. With one click, he deleted them. The empty screen buoyed him. Then he got up to bathe, determined to fold the day into the exact shape that he wanted.

Those Levick people had to go. No more foreign PR firms. They should have made that article in the American newspaper sound like him, they should have known better. They had to go. And he would not pay their balance; they had not fulfilled the purpose of the contract after all.

He pressed the intercom. Man Friday came in, face set in a placidly praise-singing smile. “Good morning, Your Excellency!”

Posted in: , , ,

A nine-year-old schoolboy has become one of the world's youngest grooms for the second time -- marrying his 62-year-old wife again.

Looking a little taller but still in last year's silvery tuxedo, baby faced Saneie Masilela clutched the hand of Helen Shabangu as they repeated their vows one year on.

Last year the boy, from nearby Tshwane, tied the knot with bride Helen after claiming he had been told by his dead ancestors to wed.

Shockingly his family took the message from the heavens seriously and hurriedly forked out £500 for the bride and a further £1,000 for the big day.

I was one of those who did OK with tests and exams, but a few of them tripped me up and made me cry when someone else did better or took the position I wanted.

It is now at this stage in my life, that I've realized those standardized tests make it seem like we're all the same, which we're not. This teacher tries to let the kids in their class understand that too, I love it.

These Passengers Missed MH17 By Minutes While Another Died After Changing Flights To Get On

Posted in: , , ,

Time and chance, they say, happens to us all. As more news about the crashed Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 come out, you want to simply break down and cry. The grief is overwhelming for the almost 300 people that died, and yet there are glimmers of relief for a few that were saved in one way or another.

Barry and Izzy Sim (above) were planning to travel to Kuala Lumpur with their young baby on Flight MH17 but were told by staff at Amsterdam's Schiphol airport that the plane was too full.

The family was then given seats on a later KLM flight, that would depart at a later time. The couple cancelled the KLM flight after the wife refused to fly when they heard that MH17 had crashed.

Barry Sim and his wife spoke of their reactions after he hearing the plane they so desperately wanted to board was shot down.

Bearded Swedish Male Model Becomes Global Heartthrob After Photos Go Viral

Posted in: , ,

Photos of Swedish model Ben Dahlhaus has been generating just aboout the same swoon worth as that of Jeremy Meeks mugshot did last month.

The model is receiving thousands of indecent proposals on various online platforms, from women - and men - around the world, many describing him as the hottest man on earth. A fashion writer even used the caption 'his sad face is hotter than your hottest face' - and many people agreed.

For me, the guy is obviously good-looking and the long hair is cool, but bearded men don't really do anything for me.

What do you think? Is he your latest man candy?

Kim Kardashian Topless and Flashing Her Booty in Tiny Bikini As She Vacations in Mexico

Posted in: , ,

Kim Kardashian shared some new pictures of herself while vacationing with her girlfriends in Mexico and it seems she's back to the body baring Kim we used to know and love :)

She captioned the picture of her and girlfriend Abbey Wilson; "#OurLovelyLadyLumps."

I guess her friend's lump she's referring to is the growing (and bare) baby bump and Kim's lumps will be, of course, her famous booty.

Kim was also topless in the photo but because she's lying on her tummy, we can't see her other lumps, if you get what I mean. Now those that want to ask what Kanye will say can go ahead, LOL...
