Late Dagrin’s Mother Is Broke; Family Seeks Financial Assistance

Three years after the death of her star son, Oladapo Olaonipekun aka
Dagrin, his mother, Mrs Oluwakemi Falilat is in a very bad financial

A suspicious blackberry message that started last week claims Dagrin's
mother has been in this situation since the sudden death of her son.

Below is the support message;

"DAGRIN is ALIVE. Yes in our hearts, he is evergreen. It has been
three years since our loving Dagrin passed on to rest in the Lord!
Show Dagrin's mum some love, drop your widow's mite in her Acct- First
Bank branch Acct- 3046543524 Olaonipekun Oluwakemi Falilat."

Mr Tunde Peter, the manager of late Dagrin has confirmed the
authenticity of the message.

While speaking with Saturday Beats, Mr Tunde said;

"Someone sent it to me and as I confirmed that the details are true, I
had to rebroadcast it,"

According to Saturday Beat, this development is quite shocking because
though Dagrin did not reign for more than eight months before his
death, he made a lot of money especially from shows. No one doubted
the love he had for his mother, especially as he said in various
interviews that she stood by him, so one would think his estate would
make arrangements for her.

Peters further told Saturday Beats that because of the lack of
structure in the music industry, nothing is working for Dagrin's

He said, "I feel his mum needs help. She claims that and currently she
is not doing anything. Nothing is working at all for all these people.
Our music industry is just a flop."

Iyanya Laments Single Status: “Finding A Girlfriend As A Celebrity Is Hard”

Singer Onoyem Mbuk aka Iyanya is currently lamenting his inability to
find a good girlfriend due to his busy schedule.

The singer who just staged an amazing performance in Toronto in a
recent interview said there is currently no woman in his life.

When queried about the lady in his life, Iyanya said;

Nobody. It's not like there can't be anybody but my job would not
allow it. It's hard to find someone that will be with you and actually
take the pain, stand the rain.
I feel like anyone I have tried to have a relationship with always
says "no, I can't".

He was also asked if he can date a fellow celebrity, the singer responded with;

I can date anybody but the thing about dating celebs is that it would
most likely not last. The only way it may last is if they are not
successful. But if they are both successful, when people see them
together, they would focus on them. That alone has an effect on the
relationship because they won't be free.

Then what happened to Yvonne Nelson and Tonto Dikeh… Guess the hotties
have dumped him.

Jim Iyke Breaks Up With Jamaican Girlfriend, Keturah Hamilton – They’re No Longer Together – Publicist

From the look of things, Nollywood bad boy Jim Iyke might have called
it quit with his Jamaican girlfriend, a model named Keturah Hamilton.

In real life, the lovers dated for a while but Jim Iyke's boyish
attitude might have been the cause of their relationship melt down.

In an email sent to today by Keturah Hamilton's team,
Jim Iyke and Keturah Hamilton are no longer together because in
reality, Jim's bad boy behavior was just too overwhelming for the
reality star. Keturah has decided to move on to the bigger and better
things that her heart has long been looking to do

Read the PR below;

Keturah Hamilton, Model, Actress, and Ex-Fiancée of Jim Iyke is ready
to tell the real story after the Jim Iyke Unscripted show that was
aired on April 17, 2013.

In a world where reality shows are an "In-thing" and bad behavior
becomes the A.M. topic to cover, leave it to Jim Iyke Unscripted or
better said the "_Scripted_" show to deliver real life drama. The
episode that aired on April 17, 2013, did not disappoint the viewers
who were glued to their TV's watching Keturah Hamilton's role that was
none the less excellent! She was really able to bring her character to
the next level of entertainment.

Keturah Hamilton had acted out an edgy script of jealousy and rage
towards Jim Iyke, that was delivered as well as any actress in
Hollywood. Keturah was so good that even her fans were astonished to
see how well she acted and was able to challenge Jim on his bad
behavior. Boldly, Jim gave Keturah the opportunity to exit the reality
show based on the controversial episode. Even though a pre-recorded
version of "Kiss and Make-up" was on stand-by to be aired, Keturah
already had made her decision.

For the time being, Jim Iyke and Keturah Hamilton are no longer
together because in reality, Jim's bad boy behavior was just too
overwhelming for the reality star. Keturah has decided to move on to
the bigger and better things that her heart has long been looking to
do. She quotes, "I wish Jim well on his show and hope that he matures
into the man I always wanted him to be!"

Keturah is currently in a new, reality-based show called "Diamonds in
the Rough". We will see more of Keturah Hamilton on the big screen and
on other future projects on the works because as they say, "It's not
over until the fat lady sings!"

Worshipper Donates Used Condom As Church Offering In Lagos Nigeria

"Offering time, blessing time!" So goes the chorus from members of the
congregation whenever it's time to give offering in most churches.

To most Christians, the offering time is, indeed, a time of immense
financial blessing. But recently, the offering time turned into a
moment of hot curses in a Lagos church when an already used condom,
dripping with semen, was discovered inside the offering box after the
Sunday service.

It was like a weird dream, according to the former Chairman,
Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Ogba Zone, Prophet Tobi
Okonkwo, who witnessed the incident. The cleric said he couldn't
believe his eyes when a discarded condom, with stains, was discovered
in an envelope in the offertory box of his former church.

When Pope Paul VI warned on June 29, 1972 that the smoke of Satan had
entered the church, not many Christians took the warning seriously.

With this recent incident, Okonkwo admitted that the agents of
darkness had infiltrated the churches in large numbers and now occupy
high-ranking positions in the gathering of God's children, where they
wreak untold havoc on the unwary flock.

Okonkwo, who is also the General Overseer of Living Word Prayer
Assembly, Agege, Lagos, wept over man's ingratitude to God during a
recent monthly thanksgiving programme of the church, tagged Manna from

Although the service was a joyful moment where the shepherd
distributes food items and other gifts to his flock, his startling
revelation brought a hush of silence on the congregation.

His words pierced the hearts of the worshippers, as he explained how
man had become ungrateful to divine benevolence. His several instances
of the atrocities committed in hallowed places pointed to the fact
that messengers from hell now walked about freely in hallowed places.
"It is really bad.

It has got to a point where some people come to the church to mock
God. They are anti-Christ but they still go to church. You could
imagine how somebody came to the church and decided to give a used
condom in an envelope to God.

You can see how wicked man has become," he said. Okonkwo said the
giver of the abominable gift refused to confess his crime, even when
the entire church rained curses profusely on whosoever was

He said, "A curse was laid on the person. Even before the people laid
the curse, God had already seen the abomination committed in his house
by someone, who pretended he came to the church to worship God."

The former PFN leader warned other members of the church of the
reality of the anti-Christ, whose reign would usher ungodliness in the
world. He lamented that prosperity message has taken over the pulpit
at the neglect of the gospel of repentance, which had enslaved many
hearts in pleasure and love of the world.

According to him, most Christians hunger for sermons that promise easy
wealth, while rejecting teachings that encourage chastity, discipline,
endurance and faithfulness.

"The style of the anti-Christ is to mock Jesus. Many Christians today
are crucifying Christ a second time. It's really sad and unfortunate,"
he said. The cleric decried the approval of same sex marriage by
different countries, describing the constitutional recognition
accorded to such couples as an indication of the reign of anti-Christ
in the world.

Rather than milk his members dry, Okonkwo said he introduced a
programme, Manna from Heaven, to feed the flock of Christ with the
little he could afford. He said the programme involved sharing of bags
of rice, noodles and other foodstuff on equal measures to all the
members to inculcate in them the love for sharing and concern for
their suffering neighbour.

Okonkwo also berated some pastors who, according to him, start
Christian ministries and involve themselves in dubious things all in a
bid to acquire wealth and fame. He said such ones worship money as
their god. "For them to get money, they end up preaching prosperity.

Salvation messages are not often on their lips. The church is not
supposed to be a business but most people have turned it into a

It is quite unfortunate," he said. Aside the sacrileges committed in
churches, Okonkwo, who had earlier predicted the emergence of Jonathan
as President during the ailing days of late President Umaru Musa
Yar'Adua, also frowned at the various scandals rocking political
offices and other sectors of the economy.

He said most Nigerians have lost the sense of sanity, citing the many
cases of corruption in the country. According to him, no day passes
without the disclosure of one fresh set of financial scandal or the

He lamented that the financial blood of the country was being drained
by some thieving elite with no interest of the masses at heart.
Although Okonkwo foreclosed the chances of possible disintegration of
the country, he warned corrupt leaders to repent or face the wrath of

According to him, only selfless leaders would bring the nation back
from the brink of monumental crisis and repair the ruins caused by
corruption and bad leadership in the country.

Dubai has achieved what 'New York did in 150 years': US report US report says women are more respected in Dubai than in the West

Dubai achieved in 10 years what New York did in 150 years while the
emirate has become a safer place than London and other key western
capitals, a US news website has reported.

Huffington Post, one of the most popular online news services in the
West, described Dubai's preparations to win the hosting of the 2020
Expo as "mind-blowing" and said it could be the most culturally
diverse event.

"When I first heard about Dubai it was from someone who had never
been. They were quick to judge it as a fake materialistic city built
on nothing, full of dropout expats....when I first visited Dubai
nothing was further from the truth. It is the most delicious cocktail
of ancient and modernity, filled with every creed and colour, situated
in the belly button of the world. To me the reverse was true. It was a
stand out city, that exuded vitality and hope, a far cry from the
crisis infused gloom hanging over the West," the website said, quoting
its reporter BritChick Paris, a British woman residing in Paris.

"I can hear all the cynics ready to wade in but I cannot refute the
evidence I have from the last few weeks working here. It has been a
breath of fresh air. Not to mention the openness and creativity that
comes from a city that is exploding and growing at lightning speed. In
ten years it has achieved what New York did in a 150."

She added:"Dubai allows you to be you.....and controversially
especially if you are a woman. I'm not the only woman to think that. I
feel safer here in Dubai than I do in London or Paris. There is a
healthy respect that means you are just left alone, so long as you in
turn respect the local values and customs."

She said that in Europe there is often an underlying chauvinism that
means that men can do it better, hence the "paucity of women
boardmembers at big Western companies."

"Here in Dubai, from my experience and that of my entrepreneur friend
women in business are admired. For those who still sit on the fence I
encourage you to check out the city. Feel the rush of high octane
business district, the calm of the Palm, the mysticism of the desert
and the majesty of the Burj. This city is rocking its way into the 00s
and beyond.

Bring on the Olympics here, I say."

Paris described Dubai's efforts to host the 2020 Expo as "mind
blowing", noting that a whole area devoted to sustainability all house
by what she described as a beautifully sculpted solar roof.

"It would be the most culturally diverse expo to have ever been
created. You can be sure that the experience here as a visitor will be
so much slicker, efficient and futuristic than any other city
competing for it."

Dad charged for allowing son, 9, to drive Ferrari

Indian police has charged a father in the state of Kerala for allowing
his 9-year-old son to drive a Ferrari on the streets as part of his
birthday celebration.

The child's parents had little known that the fun video clip that they
posted on YouTube would go viral and create outrage among netizens and
citizens alike.

The father has been booked under the under the Juvenile Justice Act
and Motor Vehicles Act.

A media report quoted a police official as saying: "We have collected
statements from the boy and other family members. But, the police
couldn't take custody of Mohammed Nisham as he is an NRI. After
completing routine formalities, we would refer the case to the court
for further proceedings."

The parents were not regretting allowing their son to break the law of
the land and were in fact proud of their son's driving abilities, if
it can be called that.

There is another video available on YouTube, which shows the same
child at the wheels of a Range Rover.

The family also own a Lamborghini and Bentley, and according to
certain media reports, the child has taken control of those luxurious
cars at some point.

The owner has removed the video from YouTube.

What Happened To This Groom On His Wedding Day? [PHOTO]

Accident? Or the aftermath of his bachelor's eve night?
I salute the bride's courage. He should really hang on to her.


Chris Brown's own father has the same feelings as most of America does
when it comes to his son dating Rihanna -- they should have NEVER
gotten back together.

In an interview with the New York Daily News, Clinton Brown said that
while he understand CB's attraction to RiRi, they are better off on
their own. He told the paper, "I personally really didn't want him and
Rihanna back together."

The elder Brown, who split from CB's mom when he was 6, thinks the
on-again/off-again couple does not have the proper balance to maintain
a good relationship, explaining, "You have to have someone who is
spontaneous and whimsical but you also have to have someone who is
grounded and logical."

Clearly neither Chris nor Rihanna would be described as "grounded" or "logical."

Family of 7 perish in road accident in Katsina

A family of seven on Saturday perished in a fatal auto accident on the
Katsina-Kano road, around Rimi Local Government Area of Katsina state.

They have since been buried according to Islamic injunction in Kankia,

Stella Damasus Marries for the third time

Nollywood actress Stella Damasus has married Daniel Ademinokan.

The actress and the movie producer/director got married sometime in
February this year in New York.

This is the third marriage for Stella who was married to late Jaiye
Aboderin thereafter Emeka Nzeribe - union to Emeka lasted for 9months.

However this is the second for Daniel who was earlier married to
actress Doris Simeon.

Some sources say they now live together in Abuja while other sources
say they have relocated to New York city.

Leadership reports that, last night Daniel held a surprise 35th
birthday party for Stella at a restaurant called 9ja Villa in
Brooklyn, New York. "Daniel also bought Stella a Range Rover yesterday

The PFA came under fire last week for its refusal to withdraw Suarez
from the Player of the Year shortlist after he bit Branislav Ivanovic
during Liverpool's game against the Blues at Anfield.
In a room full of fellow professionals and other guests at the
Grosvenor Hotel in Mayfair, central London, where the awards were
handed out, the controversial Uruguayan's name was booed on two
separate occasions.
The first time came when he was named in the team of the year, and
secondly when his name was read out on the shortlist for Player of the
Year, in which he finished second behind Gareth Bale.
Suarez, who has scored 23 goals in the league this year, received an
eight-match ban for racially abusing Manchester United defender
Patrice Evra last season. Suarez was the only Liverpool player named
in the team of the year.
Premier League top scorer Robin van Persie was one of four Manchester
United players to be included in the XI. Van Persie, who moved to Old
Trafford from Arsenal last summer, has scored 25 goals so far this
term to help United win their 20th Premier League title.

Michael Jordan’s not-so-modest wedding celebrated in tent bigger than his house

More than a year after becoming engaged in December 2011, Michael
Jordan has married fiancee and former model Yvette Prieto, his
girlfriend of five years. has details:
After five years of dating, former NBA star Michael Jordan, 50, and
his model-fiancée, Yvette Prieto, 35, made it official with a wedding
in Palm Beach, Fla., on Saturday.
About 500 people arriving by tour buses piled into an Episcopal church
called Bethesda-by-the Sea, where Donald Trump was married to Melania
in 2005.
Jordan invited another 1,500 to join them for the reception at the
Bears Club, a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course community in Jupiter,
Fla., where Jordan recently built a 38,000-square-foot home.
While 2,000 combined guests does not exactly suggest a modest affair
(the Daily Mail claims 2,200 guests), the full size of this monstrous
event cannot be communicated by words. After the jump, check out
aerial photos of the wedding tent.

If the photos don't communicate the scale, has more
information on the production:
Michael Jordan's Wedding Tent is 40,000 sq ft, 5000 sq ft larger than
his 35,000 sq ft home in the elegant and classy Bears Club in Jupiter,
Fl. As you can see from the aerial, Jack Nicklaus has graciously
allowed Jordan to place the largest tent in wedding history on the
driving range of his renowned golf course in order to house the only
2,200 invited guests! [...]
The sound system for the affair arrived in four semi-trailers and the
band spent the entire day Friday rehearsing for the BIG EVENT. Golfers
had a great time on the course, with a backdrop of music to play to.
So, to recap, Michael Jordan's wedding reception occurred in a
temporary tent larger than his own house, complete with bathrooms big
enough to host a separate large wedding and a dance floor with its own
lighting effects system. What an intimate affair!
This is Jordan's second marriage. In 2006, he split with Juanita, his
wife of 17 years, in what Forbes called the costliest divorce ever. He
has two sons and one daughter from that marriage.
There are as yet no details on the content of Saturday's ceremony
and/or reception, so we can only speculate if His Airness wore special
Air Jordans or how many buttons were on his suit jacket.

Cristiano Ronaldo denies reports of affair, says it was designed to destabilise him ahead of big match

Cristiano Ronaldo has described himself as 'deeply outraged' by
reports that he had an affair with a Brazilian woman known by the
nickname 'Miss Bumbum'.
The Real Madrid star, who is in a long-term relationship with Russian
model Irina Shayk (pictured together, above), took to Twitter to deny
the story, which appeared in The Sun.
Ronaldo also suggested that the revelations had been deliberately
timed to knock him and his team on the eve of a major game for his
side against fierce rivals Atletico Madrid.
"I was informed," Ronaldo wrote, "that The Sun, faithful to its
editorial line, will publish an article where is given voice to a so
called Andressa... someone seeking the limelight on my account. And I
wonder why this happens one day before a very important game for my
Real Madrid's hold on second place in La Liga was dependent on
avoiding defeat to their city rivals on Saturday night. Radamel Falcao
struck early for Atletico, but Ronaldo's side fought back to win 2-1.
Ronaldo himself missed the game, with a 'muscle injury' cited as the
reason for his absence.
The side, managed by Jose Mourinho, are in action again on Tuesday in
the Champions League, where they aim to overturn a shock 4-1 defeat at
the hands of Borussia Dortmund in the second leg of the semi-final at
the Bernabeu.
The article claimed that Ronaldo had been with Andressa Urach, known
as 'Miss Bumbum' after finishing second in a competition of the same
name in Brazil, as recently as last week, something that the
Portuguese forward flatly denied.
"Deeply outraged," Ronaldo continued, "by a situation intended, in
vain, to affect my personal life. I just want to clarify I was in fact
at the Hotel Villa Magna on April 22 giving an interview to Manu
Sainz, something the reporter himself is able to corroborate.
"Everything else is pure fiction and forgery."
Ronaldo had a reputation for a playboy lifestyle at certain times
during his career, but the 28-year-old has been in a three-year
relationship with Shayk.

Forget QWERTY - new KALQ layout speeds up typing on tablets A new keyboard for tablet computers promises to speed up typing by a third - by ditching the traditional QWERTY layout.

A new keyboard for tablet computers promises to speed up typing by a
third - by ditching the traditional QWERTY layout.

Researchers at St Andrews University and Germany's Max Planck
institute used computers to find the "perfect" layout for thumb-typing
on a touchscreen.
The new system, dubbed KALQ, after the order the keys appear in the
keyboard (in the tradition of QWERTY), allows people to thumb-type 34
per cent faster on tablets.

Touschscreen typing is slow - most users only manage 20 words per
minute - because keyboards are designed for 10-finger typing on
physical keyboards.

KALQ is designed for thumbs - created with computational optimisation
techniques to search among millions of potential layouts before
identifying the best possible one.

Dr Per Ola Kristensson, Lecturer in Human Computer Interaction in the
School of Computer Science at the University of St Andrews, said: "The
legacy of QWERTY has trapped users with suboptimal text entry
interfaces on mobile devices."

The new keyboard will be available as a free app for Android.

Chile Cult Burns Baby Alive On Bonfire

Chilean police have arrested four alleged cult members who they accuse
of burning a baby alive in a ritual.
The leader of the sect reportedly believed that the end of the world
was near and that the three-day-old child was the antichrist.
The baby was taken to a hill in the town of Colliguay near the port of
Valparaiso on November 21, 2012, and was thrown into a bonfire.
The baby's mother, 25-year-old Natalia Guerra, had allegedly approved
the sacrifice and was among those arrested.
"The baby was naked. They strapped tape around her mouth to keep her
from screaming," said Miguel Ampuero, of the Police Investigative
"Then they placed her on a board. After calling on the spirits they
threw her on the bonfire alive."
Authorities said the 12-member sect was formed in 2005 and was led by
Ramon Gustavo Castillo Gaete, 36, who remains at large.
Mr Ampuero said: "Everyone in this sect was a professional. We have
someone who was a veterinarian and who worked as a flight attendant,
we have a film maker, a draftsman. Everyone has a university degree."
Police said Castillo Gaete, the ringleader, was last seen travelling
to Peru to buy ayahuasca, a hallucinogenic plant that he used to
control the members of the cult.

Man Shoots Himself In Head With Harpoon Gun

A Brazilian man has somehow avoided any brain damage after shooting
himself through the eye with a six-inch harpoon.
Bruno Coutinho was cleaning his harpoon gun at his home in Petropolis
when he accidentally triggered the apparatus, sending the harpoon
through his left eye and into his cranium.
X-rays showed the harpoon speared through his eye straight through to
the back of his skull.
It took doctors four hours to successfully remove the metal harpoon.
A neighbour said: "There were people who saw it and got frightened. A
thing like this you only see in a movie."
After the accident, Mr Coutinho was able to call for help before he
was taken to Santa Teresa hospital.
Surgeons carried out two operations to remove the harpoon, which had
been stuck inside his head for more than 10 hours.
Dr Orlando Maria, chief of neurosurgery at the hospital, said the
harpoon came within millimetres of piercing a major artery in Mr
Coutinho's head.
He said: "The object, it seems, took a path where it didn't damage any
vital structures, any vascular structures and was taken out."
Amazingly, Mr Coutinho has not suffered any brain damage, although he
has lost the sight in his left eye.
He has remained in intensive care, but is expected to be released in
the next few days.

Dubai: British Trio Jailed For Four Years

Three British men, who say they were beaten by Dubai police and had
guns held to their heads, have been sentenced to four years in prison
for drug offences.
Grant Cameron, 25, Karl Williams, 26, and Suneet Jeerh, 25, were found
guilty of possession of synthetic cannabis, known as spice.
The men, from London, were arrested last July while they were on
holiday in the Gulf state.
Cameron's mother, Tracy, told Sky News her son was subjected to
electric shocks and beatings at the hands of police.
The three also claimed they were forced to sign documents in Arabic -
a language none of them understands - after having guns put to their
Mrs Cameron said on Sunday: "When he was initially arrested, the three
boys were separated, handcuffed, put into cars and driven into the
"It did appear that the CID officers were using different tactics to
try and disorientate the boys.
"They were beaten while handcuffed while in separate cars. Beaten
around the head, guns were held to their head and they received
various Taser injuries as well."
Williams also said he had electric shocks administered to his testicles.
Following the sentencing Mrs Cameron said she was "ecstatic" with the
result - the men's families had originally been warned they could face
the death penalty.
She told Sky News she was confident the men will be granted pardons
during an amnesty in Ramadan in July and will be free by the end of
the year.
She said she had seen her son for two hours last Thursday and that he
is being held in a maximum security prison in "quite harsh
Jeerh's sister Davena Kumar told Sky News she believes her brother is
innocent and that his lawyers will be appealing the sentence.
She also backed up the trio's claims of torture, saying: "I definitely
believe he was tortured, not only do I believe he was tortured, I've
actually seen the marks on his body still."
Pressure group Reprieve, which campaigns on behalf of prisoners, said
the men should be granted clemency and their torture allegations
should be thoroughly investigated.
Reprieve investigator Kate Higham said: "The central fact of this case
remains that these men were tortured by police, but there has been no
proper investigation into their abuse.
"The only reasonable course of action for the UAE authorities now is
to grant these men clemency, release them and allow them to return
home to their families.
"David Cameron must push for this when UAE President Sheikh Khalifa
arrives on a state visit tomorrow."
The UAE has said it has investigated the allegations of torture and
found them "baseless".
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has called for a full,
independent and impartial inquiry into the torture allegations and has
raised them with "very senior officials" in the UAE.

“It was a disgrace” – Messi speaks on 4-0 battering by Bayern Munich

Lionel Messi has described Tuesday's 4-0 humiliation Barcelona
suffered in the hands of Bayern Munich as "a disgrace".

The Argentine forward and his team mates were completely outclassed
and outmuscled by the Bavarians and have a huge task at the Camp Nou
to salvage anything from the tie.

"It's 4-0 and it will be difficult because they are a great team,"
Messi told reporters.

"They were a lot stronger than us – physically superior in fact. It's
a disgrace what happened, but we have to go on.

"We'll try to score at home and do our best. We must go on. Now we
must win la Liga soon."

Messi has not played for the Spanish giants, since he came off the
bench to help them oust Paris Saint-Germaine, in the quarter-finals of
the Champions League, but waved aside talk that his fitness was key.

"It was some days since I played and I didn't feel 100% comfortable
but I was not injured, so I could play," the 25-year-old insisted.

“How did it go from 1-1 to 4-1? I don’t know” – Mourinho stunned after Dortmund’s victory

Jose Mourinho was at a loss to explain his side's 4-1 loss to Borussia
Dortmund, in the first leg of their semi-final match in the Champions

Robert Lewandoski scored all four goals for the home side, while
Cristiano Ronaldo got the only goal for the Spanish giants.

Mourinho, who is chasing his third Champions League title and the La
Decima for Madrid, however admitted that Jurgen Klopp's men were the
better side.

"I think Dortmund were the best team by far, they won every individual
battle on the pitch, they were stronger physically and mentally so I
think they deserve it. How did it go from 1-1 to 4-1? I don't know.

"Everything happened in a short space of time. We lost easy possession
and we couldn't cope with their counter attack and their transition."

Speaking on the Polish striker, who troubled his side time and again,
the former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss said: "We know everything

Trouble is brewing for Bone Thugs-N-Harmony rapper Layzie Bone ... the
alleged baby mama kind.

The married father has been named in a paternity suit claiming he's
the father of a one-and-a-half-year-old child ... and the mom -- not
his wife -- is escalating her fight for child support.

The woman making the claim tells TMZ she followed up as recently as
this week on her October filing. It's been WAY more than 30 days --
and Layzie never formally responded -- so by default the court can now
declare him the father, even without a paternity test.

No comment from Layzie ... but if he thinks he can just wait this one
out, bad idea ... the court charges interest on all unpaid child
support installments.

Kids are expensive ... whether you claim them or not.

A Must Read- True life Story of Girl : How Owning A Blackberry Ruined My Life

I saw this on a blog page and it seemed too traumatic to be true…
However, with the recent inhumane treatments being meted out on
innocent girls by some heartless cannot doubt the
authenticity of this story…
Read below
My name is Chinwe, I am 26 years old, I never graduated from the
university, simply coz I was stupid and careless, on my 24th birthday,
I received a nice gift, it was a blackberry phone, I always wanted
one, it was like a right of passage, my ex-boyfriend got it for me, he
was a student like me, didn't have a job, and I really never cared to
ask as he could afford it, my concern at that point was, yes I had
finally arrived, other girls in my hostel had blackberries and I would
always get pissed when I heard sounds of pings and messages coming
into their phones at all hours and I would stare at my Nokia phone and
wish I could throw it away, but half bread they say is better than
none, so I hoped and even fasted to get a blackberry phone, looking
back now, if I had the opportunity, I'd have a landline with no
internet activity what so ever, anyway I got the blackberry phone and
even got free
BIS subscription, at that moment my life was complete, no more going
to the cyber cafes to check my emails, my face-book or twitter, I had
it all at my finger tips, life indeed was complete, or so I thought.
Anyway, I became addicted to my blackberry and also my social media
applications, and since I had constant access, I quickly gained enough
followers, and especially guys, mostly because I had a lot of er*tic
pictures on my timeline, I was popular, finally I felt I was the main
girl, everyone wanted to follow me, I didn't care if it was virtual,
it felt good, checking out my profile and having well over 8,000
followers, more than half of which were guys, but one particular guy
caught my attention, till this day I don't know what made him stand
out, but we got chatty, he sent me direct messages and I replied, he
was quiet a gentleman , and I can't remember him ever asking for a
nudè picture unlike the rest of them, so this made me comfortable with
him, his name was Tobi, he said he was a doctor , I didn't have any
cause to doubt him, he had extensive knowledge and even gave me some
medical advice from time to time, we eventually moved from twitter to
blackberry chat, we chatted all the time, I got so comfortable with
him, I gave him my number, and that would come to be the biggest
mistake I ever made.
Tobi called me every day, some days he called more than once, at night
he would call and I would lay on my bed and have phone sèx with him,
his voice was so soothing, he made me do things I never thought
possible, he had gained so much access into my head, I realized later
I had done some very sick and twisted things just to please him, I
would take nudè pictures of myself, I would send him videos of me
touching myself in private, and send him voice notes of me making
moaning sounds and simulating orgàsms, and all this while we had not
met, not face to face at least, eventually I played into his hands, I
began pestering to meet him in person, at this point I had lost my
mind, I assumed I was in-love with him, and when my boyfriend at the
time broke up with me, I really welcomed it, for me it meant no more
sneaking around.
Tobi eventually agreed to come to Lagos to meet me, all this while he
had made me to believe he was in Calabar, and would take time off work
to spend a weekend with me in Lagos, when I heard this I was excited,
he told me to book a reservation for him, stating he would pay me back
as soon as he arrived and also he said it would make him more
committed to the visit and would convince him of my seriousness, I
bought it all, he was smart, he was cunning, and I was stupid, oh how
stupid I was. The funny thing was I had sent him tons of pictures, and
all I had was just one picture of him, and whenever I asked he would
claim he wanted to be sure I loved him for him, and not for his looks,
and sheepishly I would try to convince him of my undying love, and
would try to appease him with nudè pictures of my body.
He eventually made it to Lagos, I met him at the hotel, he was tall,
handsome and had a wonderful smile, he made love to me over and over,
and convinced me to spend the night with him, I told him I couldn't,
because I had a test the next morning, now at this point I don't know
what triggered his anger, don't know if it was because I couldn't
spend the night, or maybe I said something else I can't remember
saying, but whatever it was, brought out a very ugly side of him, he
called me foul names, and kept going on and on about how he always
knew I was cheap, and he knew I was sleeping with other men, the same
man whom had swept me away, slammed me on the floor, he told me of how
he had shown his friends all my nudè pictures and how they had watched
the videos and listened to the voice notes, he told me he had made a
bet with his friends, that I would actually pay for him to have sèx
with me, just to prove how stupid I was, well you can imagine how I
felt, I was confused and shocked, but I attempted to regain any little
dignity I had left, and so I tried to mouth off at him, suddenly he
punched me in the face, and I tripped over, and hit my head on a
The next thing I remember was waking up on the bed, I was tied up, and
he was staring at me, his eyes were dark and he had a sinister smile
on his lips, he stood up and walked towards me ,I tried to scream and
realized my mouth was tapped, my head was racing, the unfortunate part
was that no one knew where I was, he turned me over, and told me he
was going to teach me a lesson, at this point I was unclad, he rapped
me from behind, and I mean my anus, the pain was mind blowing, I
struggled, and he hit me, when he was done he brought out a small
blade, and he looked at me for a minute and said, this scar is going
to always serve as a reminder, for girls like you always trying to be
more than you are, for stupid fools like you, he put the blade to my
bosom and cut it off, and anytime I think of it, I still feel the
pain, it was like nothing I had ever felt before, he was calm, like he
had done it a million times, I could feel the warm blood dripping down
my mutilated chest, tears of fear and pain running down my face, and
suddenly he turned around again, this time
all I saw was a flash.
I don't know how I survived it, but I woke up in a hospital days
after, well I was awake, but my eyes were swollen shut, It took a
couple of days for me to open my one good eye, and realize d damage he
had done, he had plucked out my eye, and cut my face,
he had cut my breasts up real bad, they had to it out, like I had
cancer or something, there was no record of who I was, coz he had
taken everything, he had taken my bag, containing everything I had. I
was able to tell the nurses about what I could remember, and also give
them my mum's phone number, the hospital felt so much pity, they
actually treated me for free, hard to
believe right?
Anyway I was taken home after weeks at the hospital to recuperate, it
was tough, I was blind in one eye, I had one chest and a hideous scar
of my face, talk about your sinage, he did a number on me, how dumb
was I, sometimes I wish he had killed me, but there are fates worse
than death, and I guess this is one of them, he was gone without a
trace, the receipt
from the hotel was in my name, so yes he had played me from the start.
I didn't dare go back to school, I was sure everyone would have heard,
and I was not going to become a statistic, so I decided to stay home,
and mind my business, besides what do I need an
education for, I'd rather stay home, because there is no rising from
this, there is no happy ending to this story, this is the simple
ending, I was a victim if a sèxual predator, and I let him into my
life period, and I take full responsibility for that, I was driven by
greed and lack of morals, I allowed myself fall into an abyss, but
well saying all this doesn't change anything, it's a memory I will
have to live with for the rest of my life, well not a memory, because
I look at myself in the mirror everyday, who would want to see a nudè
picture of a woman with one chest, one eye, and a stub.
I have decided to publish my story, because with the rise of social
media atrocities being committed, every story can go a long way in
saving a life, so while you read, SHARE and help someone back to the
right path, these internet predators are real.
May Almighty God Help us all. "Amen"

Obama threatens daughters with 'family tattoo' America's first couple try their best to keep their daughters from getting tattoos

If they were thinking about getting tattoos, the Obama daughters may
want to reconsider.

Speaking on NBC's "Today" show in a segment originally filmed before
the Boston Marathon bombings, President Barack Obama revealed the
strategy he and First Lady Michelle Obama have been using to keep
their daughters away from tattoos.

"What we've said to the girls is, 'If you guys ever decide you're
going to get a tattoo, then mommy and me will get the exact same
tattoo, in the same place, and we'll go on YouTube and show it off as
a family tattoo,'" Obama said.

"Our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow
that's a good way to rebel."

During the segment, the president also said he understood his wife's
"slip of the tongue" when she called herself a "single mother" in
early April, noting that they were often apart for a week at a time
when he was campaigning for the Senate and presidency.

"I tend to cut my wife or anybody some slack when it comes to just
slips of the tongue," he said.

"But there's no doubt that there have been times where Michelle
probably felt like a single mom ... She definitely, I think,
understands the burdens that women in particular tend to feel if
they're both responsible for child rearing and they're responsible for
working at the same time," he added.

"Iron Man 3" Cast Addresses Film's Parallels to Boston Bombings

There's no doubt "Iron Man 3" will be a huge hit when it comes out
next week -- but, in the aftermath of the Boston Bombings, some scenes
may now be harder to watch.

At a press conference for the movie earlier today, Robert Downey Jr.,
Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle spoke out about some of the
unfortunate real-life parallels the flick faces and how they've
handled the topic of violence (both actual and celluloid) with their
own children.

While our review of the movie is on hold until next week, there's one
scene in "Iron Man 3" involving an explosion at the Chinese Theater in
Hollywood that shares an eerie connection to what happened in Boston
last week.

The fact that a terrorist (Sir Ben Kinglsey's menacing Mandarin) takes
credit for the blast -- which claims lives of innocent civilians --
only makes the coincidence more unsettling.

"Clearly, this movie was in the can before anything happened," Cheadle
explains. "As Robert mentioned earlier, the job of this film is to
entertain. We're really trying to give people the ability to go into a
darkened room and have a couple of hours of just pure enjoyment."

And while they do want to provide an escape for the audience, Paltrow
says the movie can also help open up communication with your kids
about some of life's scarier situations.

"We do live in an unsafe world. That's the truth," she says. "I'm
dealing with that now with my seven-year-old [son Moses], who's
grappling with the fact that the world is unsafe and there are people
who do harmful things."

"I don't think there's anything wrong with presenting that idea," the
mother-of-two continues. "We can't lie to our children and pretend the
world is perfect and everybody's happy and out there to do good."

"I just know that after my children saw the movie I had certain
conversations with my son about it and it's a good place to have a
conversation," she says.

Downey kept it simple, saying "I like entertainers to talk about
entertainment" -- but then teasing "There's something about it [The
Mandarin backstory] that allows the air to be taken out of the

See if good prevails when "Iron Man 3" opens May 3.

Why Fergie And Hodgson Can’t Both Be Wrong Over Cleverley

There is a lot of debate about whether Manchester United and England
midfielder Tom Cleverley is the answer to the problems that club and
country have.

The 23 year old has been a big part of Manchester United's pursuit of
a 20th league crown and has been ever present in Roy Hodgson's England
team since Euro 2012.

The critics don't see what Cleverley brings to the table. They believe
he is only in the England squad because he plays for Manchester

But if Sir Alex Ferguson has faith in the young midfielder and
continues to play him in the big games against the likes of Real
Madrid and Chelsea, then surely he can do a job for England.

The downsides seen in Cleverley's game is that he doesn't get enough
goals. So far this season, Cleverley has played 28 times for
Manchester United and only scored four goals, one was an over hit
cross which deceived Tim Krul and ended up in the back of the net.
With a lack of goals, Cleverley doesn't affect the game in the same
way as Frank Lampard does with his ability to score goals.

Another flaw seen in Cleverley's game is his vision. He keeps the ball
well but he doesn't have the kind of vision that Michael Carrick has
shown on numerous occasions this season. Carrick's pass to set up
Javier Hernandez to score a last minute winner against Newcastle or
his delightful reverse pass to set up Javier Hernandez in Manchester
United's 2-2 draw with Chelsea in the FA Cup.

His range of passing is not the same as the likes of Steven Gerrard or
Paul Scholes. Their ability to switch the play in an instant helps
their side unsettle defences and give them more of a chance to break
sides down.
With people quick to criticise Cleverley's game, there is a lot of
positives he brings to the game.

His versatility is a huge bonus for both club and country. Cleverley
prefers to play in the middle, but his ability to adapt to any
situation in the game is a real plus. He has the ability to change
from a holding midfielder to playing out wide, being behind the
frontman to dropping deep and protecting the back four. Cleverley can
cover all areas across the midfield.

But Cleverley's main attribute is his ability to keep the ball. With
the game changing at European and International level, there is more
emphasis now on teams keeping possession.

England's problem when it's comes to major tournaments is there lack
of possession. Ball retention is vital in major tournaments, hence why
Spain have won the last three major tournaments. Teams like Spain,
Germany and Italy made the final four of Euro 2012 because they have
players that can keep the ball.

Cleverley's pass success rate is excellent, plus he is always
available and finds space easily around the pitch.
The game is changing and players like Cleverley are the future of the
game. If people like Sir Alex Ferguson and Roy Hodgson believe in
Cleverley, then people should give him a chance.

With Cleverley turning 24 before the start of next season, he needs to
add to his game. Keeping possession is vital, but adding goals or
creating more chances, will see Cleverley held in a higher esteem.

Bentley's turn to join Dubai Police's Lamborghini and Ferrari? Sources claim Bentley and Merc SLS are to join the superfleet, which already incudes a Lamborghini Aventador and a Ferrari FF

It was only a matter of time before the next instalment of supercars
were unveiled as latest additions to the Dubai Police fleet, which has
already undergone a stylish makeover that would do any fashion house

After shifting gear to include a Chevrolet Camaro, a BMW 5 series, a
Lamborghini Aventador and a Ferrari FF, news is that a Bentley and a
Mercedes SLS are to cruise into the police garages.

A leaked image has surfaced online, showing both the models in
pristine white in a similar garage to where the earlier cars were
spruced up with the Dubai Police insignia.

While no official statement has yet been made on the two new additions
to the sporty family of patrol cars, a source with knowledge to the
makeover has confirmed the authenticity of the image and reiterated
that the Bentley Continental GT and Mercedes SLS are the new
Prominent lawyer, Dr Habib Al Mulla has also tweeted the same, saying:
"Dubai Police is adding a Bentley and a Mercedes SLS to its supercar

The source also revealed that several new additions the patrol fleet
will be unveiled in the coming weeks, with many cars being offered to
the authorities to make these city streets safer in a stylish way.

Twitter world has already offered up several suggestions, with the
Bugatti Veyron emerging as the top choice for the family offspring,
followed by a Porsche 911 Turbo and the Audi R8 Spyder.

Earlier this month, Dubai Police unveiled images of the Camaro and the
Beemer 5 series on its official Facebook and Twitter accounts, as part
of a public campaign to spruce up the supercar patrolling fleet.

Later, the authority brought traffic to a standstill when the
Lamborghini Aventador took to the streets with its number '8'license
plate, and full regalia in the green and white colours of the
government institution.

The Ferrari FF was unveiled a few days later.

Lt General Dhahi Khalfan Al Tamim, Dubai's police chief, said the
luxury sports cars were slated to be used for security purposes, with
the Ferrari FF being driven by female patrol officers.

With a fleet that is geared to hit 0-100kms in 3.5 seconds or so, even
if a high-speed chase is not on the road map, few would try to out run
these mean machines.

Incidentally, the Lamborghini Aventador retails for approximately Dh2
million, while the Ferrari FF is close to Dh900,000.

Nigerian Actress Eucharia Anunobi: Being An Evangelist Doesn`t Stop My Acting Career

Nollywood actress turned full-time evangelist, Eucharia Anunobi has
vowed not to abandon her acting career for a full-time ministerial

The actress who was ordained an evangelist a while back did a question
and answer section where curious fans ask her several questions.

See her response to some questions below

Why would Nigerians, my own people, think in the direction that i have
either stopped acting or would never feature in any movie because of
my calling and ordination as an EVANGELIST? As if ACTORS are sinners?

What is the job of acting all about in the first instance? And what
are the roles and responsibilities of an Evangelist? Dissemination of
INFORMATION right???????

I think everyone should try to grab a copy of GOD OF SHILOH AND GOD OF
ZION, then, the MESSAGE about the relationship between Acting and
Evangelism would be clearer to US.

JAY-Z & KANYE HUG SO HARD After 'Suit & Tie' Diss

Guess Jay-Z wasn't too pissed off after his BFF Kanye West publicly
ripped "Suit & Tie" a few months ago ... 'cause the two reunited on
the streets of NYC today and hugged it out like it never happened.

Kanye's diss made national news back in February ... when he grabbed

f***ing with that 'Suit & Tie."

Justin Timberlake playfully shot back at Kanye during a performance on

Late Nigerian Singer Dagrin Remembered 3 Years After His Death

Late Nigerian rapper Olaitan Oladapo popularly called Dagrin who died
in a fatal car accident on the 22nd of April 2010 has been remembered.

Pictured to the right above is the decorated photo of his accident car….

Though the rapper had earlier predicted his own death in a very
controversial song he released few weeks before his untimely death.

The lyrics of the song states;

"If I die, make you no cry for me, e je n simi… (let me rest).

And when he eventually died, the rumour that he predicted his own
death was rife.

Below is what the producer of Dagrin's death song, Frenzy said;

He came to the studio that day as usual. After I had finished
recording with some people, I played the beat of the song to him and
he loved it. So he decided to do freestyle on it first, with the hope
of coming back later to perfect it. But unfortunately, we didn't have
the time until his accident and eventual death. Dagrin never knew he
was going to die. It was just a coincidence," Frenzy said.

May his soul rest in perfect peace!

“I had to wait so long” – Van Persie delighted to win first League title

Robin van Persie has expressed his happiness, at finally laying his
hands on a Premier League winner's medal.

The striker bagged a hat-trick, as Manchester United thrashed Aston
Villa at Old Trafford, to be confirmed as the winners of the EPL
2012/2013 season.

Van Persie moved from Arsenal last summer – where he spent eight years
without winning a single trophy – and his goals have helped Sir Alex
Ferguson's men wrestle the title from fierce rivals, Manchester City.

"I had to wait for so long for the first title. It's a great feeling.
[We have] a fantastic team with fantastic players," he said after the

"If you look at every single one of the players, it is a championship
for every single one of them; the staff, the manager, players.
Everyone. It's our 20th title and it's deserved.

"It doesn't really matter who scored, as long as we win the game. And
we did win the game. It was great to score so early, and [it was] a
great win on a fantastic day of football.

"[The second goal] was one of the best I've ever scored, but it
doesn't matter today. It was an incredible goal but all I had to do
was time it right … and have a little bit of luck."

Tinted glass permit is free- of- charge, says Police IG

The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Abubakar on Friday said
the permit for the use of tinted factory vehicle glasses does not
attract any ant charge.

The IG was reacting to public outcry against fees allegedly demanded
by the policemen across the country for permission to use tinted motor
glasses. He stated while fielding questions during a meeting with the
Assistant Inspectors General of Police in charge of Zonal Commands
across the country that it is illegal for officers to charge fees for
the permit.

The IGP said motorists should allow any policeman to subject them to
paying any fee that has not been approved by the Police high command.

According to Abubakar,"It is free of charge, there is no amount of
money written there for anybody. And they (motorists) should not allow
any policeman anywhere to subject them to paying fees that are not
officially, legally and legitimately stated," he said.

The IGP said that the meeting with the AIGs was to review security
challenges including terrorism, kidnapping, cultism and communal
clashes in parts of the country in order to strategise on how to
address them.
