Posted in: ,

Viral Ferguson hug photo staged? That is the question many black people are asking days after the above touching photo of a white police officer hugging an emotional African-American boy went viral. Many are going as far as calling the image a white media propaganda to denigrate black protesters.

The photo was taken at a Portland, Oregon protest following the St Loius grand jury ruling that no criminal charges would be brought against Officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri this past summer.

Joseph Benjamin In Interracial Romantic Comedy - MUM, DAD, MEET SAM

Posted in: , ,

Mum, Dad Meet Sam stars Nigerian actor Joseph Benjamin, along with British Nollywood actors, ADOT Comedian, Daniella Down,Theodora Ibekwe-Oyebade, Helen Gold, Anthony Ofoegbu, Edith Nwekenta, Segilola Ogidan, Marlene Abuah.

The romantic comedy is about a Nigerian guy in London who falls in love with a white woman and then brings her home to Nigeria to meet his parents. It sounds intruiging and fresh to me, quite a reverse of what we usually have here in the US where it is usually the white woman taking her black boyfriend home.

To the makers, I hope we don't have to wait too long to see it online?

Igloo Australia Trends After Azealia Banks Blasts Iggy Azalea For Black Exploitation

Posted in: , ,

Two rappers, Iggy Azaela and Azealia Banks may have confusingly similar names but that is where the similarity ends. And there seems to be no love lost either. Yesterday, Azealia Banks called out Iggy for exploiting black culture in the wake of offline and online protests following a grand jury's decision not to indict a white NYPD officer who caused the death of an unarmed black man.

Azealia took to twitter to vent her frustration and eventually turned her attention to Iggy and blasted her for trying to be black, having a black boyfriend but not standing up for black issues like the Ferguson or the Eric Garner protests. She did not name Iggy Azalea but referenced her with the phrase Igloo Australia.

The rumors of the birth are based on Gelila's sister who created multiple posts on social media that stated, "I have met the love of my life; I'm on a natural high and don't plan on coming down anytime soon; that clean baby scent; just up taking care of my nephew."

50-Year-Old Vivica Fox Reportedly Dating 31-Year-Old Who Plays Her Son In New Movie

Posted in: , ,

50-year-old actress Vivica Fox is reportedly dating a young man almost 20 years her junior, Dailymail reports. And he's not just any youngie, he is well known child star who played the part of Bobby in the Nickolodeon series, Cousin Skeeter.

I remember ogling his fine face and hazel eyes back in the day, and even then I knew I was a cougar though I was also in my older teens then. I can only imagine if Vivica ever watched the show and saw him at 12 - 16 when she was already in her 30's, and whether she's been eyeing him since then. Yikes!

Time For Maheeda To Stop Posting Her Nude Pictures?

Posted in: ,

The name Maheeda in Nigeria is synonymous with naked pictures posted on social media, either on Twitter or on Instagram, though the latter will always delete her posts or her account when the pictures get too raunchy.

But Maheeda can't be stopped by such social media policies on nudity. She just doesn't care, she simply posts more nudes, or opens a new account. When she's feeling in a good mood, she may just cover the controversial parts and tone it down to 16+ as can be seen in the picture above.

Short Story - One Chance Christmas

Posted in: , ,

By Onyinye Orabuike

It's a couple of days into the month of December, and in church Last Sunday, the minister prayed for us for Christmas gift from heaven, and the church members chorused amen as if their lives depended on it. People are pressed to meet up with different targets they set for themselves for the year. Men who had their mind set on the dream car they want to take home for Christmas are making frantic bids to maximise sales.

Single ladies who believe that this year will not pass them by are intensifying prayers. I learnt that in some forums parents who for some reasons may not be able to travel to the village for Christmas make special plans for their daughters that are of marriageable age to travel so as to increase their chance of meeting suitors.
