Posted in: , , ,

President Goodluck Jonathan was photographed reading a book today by his assistant on publicity, Reuben Abati, who captioned the photots, #PresidentialReadingTime: President Jonathan perusing "Topics in West African History" by Adu Boahen #Random #ReadersareLeaders.

It's certainly good to read, but the book President Goodluck was reading must have been boring because he had fallen asleep by the final pictures. Or simply not into the book? I suggest someone gives him a copy of A Love Rekindled :)

Debra Cox Will Be Singing All Of Whitney Houston's Classics in Upcoming Lifetime Biopic

Posted in: , ,

Yaya DaCosta may be playing Whitney Houston for the upcoming Lifetime biopic based on the late singer's life, but it’s been announced that Deborah Cox will play Whitney’s voice!

The Houston Estate has done everything in their power to stop Lifetime from making this film, including denying production the rights to Whitney’s music — so the movie producers have commissioned Deborah Cox to sing all of Whitney’s classics that will be featured in the movie.

Deborah might just have the most important performance of the entire movie. I wonder if this means that Yaya Dacosta is not such a great singer?

Meanwhile, to play Bobby Brown in the movie is Arlen Escarpeta, a young relatively unknown actor. See him with Yaya Dacosta below...

A two-month-old baby has died in Abuja  as a result of lack of oxygen for treatment following the nation wide strike embarked upon by doctors.
