President Barack and Michelle Obama - Over 20 Years of Marriage and Still Going Strong

Posted in: , , ,

Barack and Michelle just give me joy every time I see them and especially when they step out together. The couple are holding hands almost every time you see them, and the genuine smiles are Iinfectious. They're so inspiring for any up and coming couple on what being a team in marriage means. Gushing over,  let me say to the naysayers,  forget Scandal. That is fiction, this is real. LOL...

Posted in: , , ,

Asaba has a rising profile as one of the thriving locations for Nollywood movies, and this must have informed the decision by the Best of Nollywood awards organizers to hold the award ceremony there. And it makes me proud since I'm from Asaba, and I'm of the opinion that more events should happen outside Lagos. Below are more pictures from the event and some of the winners.

Uche Jombo was with her husband Kenny Rodriguez in the States a few months ago before she returned for the festivals and awards season in Nigeria. She shared this picture of them together with the tags, #Mr&MrsRodriguez #AboutThatTimeOfTheYear #XmasIsUponUs #LetTheFunTimesBegin.

Memorial Service For Nelson Mandela at the Aso Villa Chapel, Abuja

Posted in: , ,

Someone said Goodluck Jonathan was Nigeria's Mandela which I think is ill advised, as only history will prove that. President Jonathan himself who was in Paris when news of Mandela's death was announced was more officious. He declared three days of national mourning with flags to be flown at half mast, which was fitting considering the historical ties between Nigeria and South Africa, and Nelson Mandela n particular. The three days culminated in a memorial service for the late Mandela held yesterday at the Aso Villa Chapel, Abuja. Mandela will be buried in SA, December 15. May his soul rest in peace.

Cyber Bullying: This Toke Makinwa and Linda Ikeji Issue - Toni Payne

Posted in: , , ,
By Toni Payne

Let me start by saying, we sometimes avoid those touchy subjects because we wish to avoid “drama” but Cyber Bullying is one concept it seems we are yet to get a full grasp on its consequences. Currently, in America there is a full campaign launched against bullying in general, where different celebs have been actively campaigning to stop bullying. We have seen cases of young ones committing  suicide because they couldn’t handle the bullying. I pray and hope things don’t get this far in my motherland, although I suspect it may have and we just don’t document it as much.
