Japheth Omojuwa proposed to his girlfriend Damilola Ogunleye at a small dinner with friends last night. The new couple have been friends for a while and he was waiting for her graduation to pop the question.

The usually serious social media strategist and political blogger, turned mushy and romantic as he got on one bended knee to ask Damilola to please accept his ring. The ring was specially made by Rebecca Noff who explained that it was an 18K White gold with diamonds  and sapphires. Of course, Dami said YES!

The proposal was witnessed by a handful of their friends in Abuja including Abdulkadir Abubakar, Miss Augie, Mercy Abang and Shehu Ashaka.

Rihanna stepped out for a night out clubbing in a dazzling red embroidered slip of a dress which she upgraded by pairing with Gucci Sunglasses and Manolo Blahnik sandals.

Only Rihanna could step out in what looks like a night attire and make it look super totally appropriate to be worn to an event. She wore the same dress to a barbacue where she was photographed with Big Sean. [MTO Says the two are dating, I say NOT]

Check out the pics below and tell us what you think of Rihanna's styling of the dress for afternoon and night. She was wearing red sneakers at the afternoon event.

Sherri Shepherd Set to Reject Her Unborn Surrogate Baby?

Posted in: , ,

Sherri Shepherd and Lamar Sally are going through a separation [read here], and new reports are saying Sherri does not want anything to do with her unborn surrogate baby? 

TMZ says it's because she believes her estranged husband defrauded her into having the kid in the first place so he could get child support. But I think even if the baby was conceived with Lamar's sperm, and not Sherri's egg as the reports say, I still find it hard to believe.

I doubt that  that Sherri, who the report says tried to get pregnant in vitro and when it didn't work she got deeply involved in the surrogacy process, would then bail this far into the journey!

Pope Francis Asks Forgiveness For The Sins of Child Sexual Abuse in the Church - Full Text

Posted in: , ,

Pope Francis today celebrated a strictly private mass with six adults – German, Irish and British – who were sexually abused by priests as children and he apologized to them and to all who faced the same abuse.

The homily he said at the mass was the first complete text dedicated by any Pope to "the crime and grave sin" of child sexual abuse that had rocked the Roman Catholic Church and its clerics.

The Pope also apologised for the sins of omission on the part of Church leaders. At the end of the mass, Francis spent over three hours with the victims, holding a series of private interviews with each one individually.

Read the text of the Pope's homily below. Some are calling it a PR Stunt, but I find it very heartfelt and I believe victims will be moved to forgiveness and healing.
