Man Abducted By Boko Haram For 3 Months Tells of Daily Rape of Wife, How He Went Blind

Posted in: , ,

Alhaji Mustapha Oy­eyinka is now cursing the day he decid­ed to relocate to Nigeria from Europe where his family has been doing fine. Today, he has not only lost his sight to Boko Haram but lives with the agonizing memory of his wife being raped along with other women almost on a daily basis for three months.

Excited about his return to Nigeria, the victim sometime in February 2011 decided to take a trip to Kaduna to attend a wedding ceremony with his wife, Rachael. Unfortunately, they were kidnapped on their way there, and ended up in a Boko Haram camp.

50-year- old Oyeyinka said he has remained in hiding in Lagos since he regained his freedom and refused to tell his story because he was too terrified. He said he decided to open up now because he has made up his mind to return to his base in Spain in Europe where he expects a miracle to regain his sight. He told his story to Saturday Sun.

Dating Naked Couple To Get Married In Naked Wedding

Posted in: , , , ,

I'm such a sucker for dating shows, lol and I squeed when Dating Naked episode 6 ended and in the round-up credits, it was shown that one of the couples was getting married!

The reality TV show was described as "a dating experiment", and it had worked out for one couple already! At the end of episode 6 which I just watched this weekend, Ashley and Alika found love after meeting on the show.

Ashley is an art therapist and Alika, a sexual healer, both lovers of tattoos, spiritualism and being natural. It was no big surprise when they hit it off in the second date of the episode, but there was some suspense as it seemed like Ashley also became attracted to her third date. Luckily, his true colors came out soon enough and she was able to decide who her heart wanted.

Six-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt broke 10 seconds for the first time this season when he won a 100m race under a closed roof at the National Stadium in Warsaw on Saturday.

The Jamaican clocked 9.98 seconds into a slight breeze at the Kamila Skolimowska Memorial in front of a 20,000 crowd on a new track laid down the side of the infield.

Bolt’s first Polish outing was his third race this season as he builds up to Thursday’s Diamond League meeting in Zurich and saw him set a new best time for the infrequently run 100 indoors.

The world record holder beat the previous unofficial indoor best mark of 10.05 set by Namibian Frankie Fredericks in 1996.

Ali Baba Writes On Single Mothers Who Are Not Prepared To Cater For Their Children

Posted in: , ,

Every now and then, I meet and get messages, from ladies, who either lost their jobs, widowed, pregnant and no job, the guy who impregnated them absconded, or is around but doesn't give a hoot, or working but can't meet the financial demands of raising kids on their own, or the guy agreed to having the babies and to support with their upkeep... But things happened and he couldn't come through with the promised support.

Single mothers are increasing in numbers consequent on one or two of the reasons mentioned above. And this always makes me ask, is it not possible to avoid being caught up in some of these tough situations? I know its impossible to know if you will be a widow and left with 2 or 3 kids to raise by yourself, as a mother. But when it happens, what is the solution?

Posted in: , ,

Floyd Mayweather has responded in his own way to all those people on the Internet who had been making fun of him for not being able to read (audio here). Without saying much, the champion boxer posted a picture of two multi-million dollar checks on Twitter, along with the caption ‘Read this’.

$31 million? $40 million! OMG, not that we didn't know he was mega rich, but still, that is just two checks within a period of one year!

This reminds me of what one of my followers said on Facebook in defense of Floyd. He said;

Comedian Princess Speaks On Her Failed Marriage, Depression And Career

Posted in: , ,

Damilola Adekoya, popularly known as Princess, tells Punch in a new interview about her career and life after her marriage which lasted less than one month.

As a Theatre Art student, was it your desire to go into comedy?
No. I never knew I would be a stand-up comedian. I thank God any way. We went for a show at MUSON Centre (Lagos). We had a stage play performance. I used to make my friends laugh during rehearsals. So that day, we were waiting for the comedians that were supposed to perform at that event. So somebody suggested that I should go on the stage and perform. That was how it started. But the likes of Wale Adenuga encouraged me to go into it full time.

Are there times you wish you weren’t a celebrity especially when you are linked with controversies?
The only time I felt bad about my fame was when my marriage ended. I felt if I weren’t this popular; people wouldn’t have talked about it. So many marriages crash on a daily basis but you will not hear about them. Some people have been married five times but you will not hear their gist because they are not in the eye of the public. People didn’t know that the marriage had broken up until December when I felt I was strong enough to handle the publicity that it generated.
