You've heard the saying, "Don't quit your day job"? It was made for her. Simon actually tries to get Adeola Adegoke -- and succeeds! (See, he's not all bad.)

And so you have it, superstar extraordinary has said categorically that he will not be marrying any of his "baby mamas". Omg, we say that is going to be a problem. Here is what we gathered: In an interview given to Kemi Lawal (we have highlighted the exciting bits!) YOU spent more time outside the country in 2008; was it a deliberate act? Tuface: Yes, I was away most of the time. I really would not say it was pre-planned, but it was due to so many people wanting to see me in different parts of the world. So I had to be there. Were you running away from stiff competition or the artistes that were springing up here and there (at home)? Tuface: I am not part of any competition so I can‘t be running away. Competition is good. It helps you better your act. So if I am to run away from anything, it definitely would not be that. I don‘t see myself competing with anybody. Dey fit dey overthrow themselves, me I no follow anybody rub shoulder. But you know a king cannot rule fo

OMG ! HOW I KEEP MEN AWAY BY SUPER MODEL DAYO BABATUNDE!

Written by Bridget Amaraegbu Saturday, 17 January 2009 She stands a little above six feet. And when she walks, it is with such grace that you can’t but look in her direction. Be it in on the runway or on the streets Dayo Babatunde the Naomi Campbell of modern day Nigerian fashion industry is a sight to behold. Dark in complexion Dayo succeeded in a world where it was a crime not to be fair or outrightly put, an Oyibo to become a model. She shares her experience as one of the oldest surviving models in the country. With more than two decades of experience in the kitty Dayo seems to have seen it all in a world where some model lives in a world ruled by fun seeking men who would do anything to get between their legs. Enjoy: Before now you were one of the top models in the country, but you’ve been out of circulation, what happened? Basically two things happened.

TOO FUNNY!!! OCEANIC BANK, MOUKA FOAM AND OTHERS MILK THE "OBAMA COW" A MUST READ!

Hmm can we say interesting? Oceanic bank makes good use of the word CHANGE and Mouka foam... well read on! Lagos, Nigeria - While Americans revel in the festivities surrounding the inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama in far away Washington DC on Tuesday, Nigerian firms were cashing in on the inauguration to advertise their products. The inauguration of Obama as the 44th President of the United States has generated widespread interest here, with most newspapers Tuesday devoting several pages to the ceremony. The fairy tale story of Obama, born to a Kenya father and a white American mother, has made the President-elect a brand to associate with in these parts, and across the world. That fact is not lost on Nigerian companies, many of which placed full page adverts in local newspapers Tuesday to be part of the inauguration train, while also hoping the Obama brand name will rub off on theirs. Banks, aviation firms and manufacturers are among those milking what an analysts tag

MEET THE TWENTY SEVEN YEAR OLD HUNK WHO WRITES PRESIDENT OBAMA'S SPEECHES!!!

Jon Favreau, head speech writer for US Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. Photograph: Emmanuel Dunand/AFP/Getty Images According to the uk guardian, Jon Favreau, 27, is, as Obama himself puts it, the president's mind reader. He is the youngest chief speechwriter on record in the White House, and, despite such youth, was at the centre of discussions of the content of today's speech, one which has so much riding on it. For a politician whose rise to prominence was largely built upon his powers as an orator, Obama is well versed in the arts of speech-making. But today's effort will tower over all previous ones. It is not just that Obama has set an extremely high bar by invoking the inaugural speeches of Abraham Lincoln as his inspiration - admitting to feeling "intimidated" when he read them. It is also that, as he begins his term with the US in an economic crisis and two wars, he knows he needs to kick start his presidency with a soaring rhetoric

You can tell she is daddy's girl Pics Source (AP and Getty) Wow may I just say the trip to the inauguration was certainly worth it; Cold or not, you would hardly have noticed based on the excitement in the air. I must say, though the trains (metro) were packed, it turned out to be a really smooth ride; everyone was courteous to one another. The emotion from the crowd when President Obama got sworn in was simply electrical; Flags waving people hugging. One guy said to me "would you believe we turned Virginia Blue?" I smiled inwardly at the thought; who would have thought? Everyone hugged, cried, laughed and "boy" the first kids looked so cute. By the way J CREW'S website crashed yesterday, thanks in part to everyone trying to order the same outfits worn at the inauguration by the first children, Sasha and Malia. pics (AP and Getty) The parade was exciting and I have to say this I have so much respect and love for First Lady Michelle Obama because she i

PICTURE THIS!! PRESIDENT OBAMA'S STEP MOTHER ARRIVES IN DC!! + WHAT HAVING OBAMA AS PRESIDENT MEANS TO ME! CAN I SHARE IT WITH YOU??

Image
Okay, So I did a lot of thinking in my jubilant mood and let me tell you in little words what having President Elect Barack Obama means to me. Well as you may recall in one of my previous posts; I talked about how I guess "I am an Obama Girl", well it is ever so more evident now as I smile each time people ask if my last name ( similarly sounding like Obama) is from the same area in Africa as Obama; It is now so COOL to have an unusual name, you no longer have to spell it out; people actually make an effort to pronounce it. That certainly is a change and one that I am proud of, it is evident in the smiles as you pass everyone, change has come; I will be at the inauguration, will you be there? Here is what his step Mother, KEZIA OBAMA had to say about Barack Obama, according to the daily mail: "Barack Jr was really happy to meet us. He was really eager to see the family home and to see where his father was buried. He was quiet and was always reading history books.

pic source Well she is certainly the new supermodel and entrepreneur to watch; pretty much not seen since the era of Oluchi or Iman! She could even be the next Tyra Banks and you know what she has got a secret and we can tell you what it is! She was rumored by the British tabloids to be dating JUDE LAW! Apparently, that has been denied by the actor but we will never know; What we do know of her is this: She was spotted at 17 to be a model, she DJs at a popular British spot called Bungalow 8; But get this is she has a good role in a yet to be released HOLLY WOOD movie with Dustin Hoffman. And her secret: She can tie a Cherry stalk with her tongue! Okay now! What do you say readers? You heard it first on here; now watch the others follow!

PICTURE THIS!! GO GIRL? NATALIE DYLAN AUCTIONS OFF HER PRICELESS VIRGINITY FOR 3.7 MILLION DOLLARS!!!

Image
pic source: daily telegraph Imagine that! Who would have thought guys would bid so much? Natalie Dylan auctions off her virginity to pay for grad school. The story comes from Daily Telegraph , saying the price has now hit $3.7 million: "Last September, when her auction came to light, she had received bids up to £162,000 ($243,000) but since then interest in her has rocketed. The student who has a degree in Women's Studies insisted she was not demeaning herself." Apparently she got inspired by her sister who earned money from the three weeks of prostitution to pay for her grad school. "Miss Dylan, from San Diego, California, USA, said she was persuaded to offer herself to the highest bidder after her sister Avia, 23, paid for her own degree after working as a prostitute for three weeks. She said she had had a lot of attention from a wide range of men, including "weirdos", "those who get really graphically sexual about what they want

The lovely couple Akinola and Adebola (the govenor's cousin) pictured above. The wedding took place at Hoare's Methodist Church in Yaba and the reception at Unilag's multipurpose hall. Chairman of the occasion was the former inspector general of police, Alhaji Musiliu Smith; I must say I am loving the traditional strawberry cake. Next stop our girl Uru's article from the latest edition of True LOVE MA URU She likes to do things in her own way, in her own time. It’s an attitude that has had her labeled as “stubborn” and “headstrong” by some since childhood. But, as far as she and her fans are concerned, it’s an attitude that works for her. It has helped her to maintain her focus and sense of self in the notoriously image-centric music industry. After years away from Nigeria, Uru is experiencing a homecoming in more ways than one. After pursuing an education and a career in the United States, she is returning, bearing gifts: an offering of her third album, Africa Mma

BEAUTIFUL STYLE ICON GRACE EGBAGBE BACK IN NAIJA AND LOOKING HAWT!!! PICTURE!

Image
"Grace Zemaye Egbagbe has for long been a hot favourite among the paparazzi. Her sense of style is coveted by many. It is not surprising then that very little is said about her other interests which include a penchant for self development. As she puts it, “You’ve got to always update yourself with knowledge.” A mother of two, Grace is so devoted to her children who have in turn rewarded her by being the best they can be. The bond that exists among them is more than filial, it is divine. Fresh into retirement and just back from a well-deserved time-out with her family in the United States of America, former NTA marketing director, Grace Egbagbe looks like she just stepped out of a five star SPA. She exudes more confidence and charm than she ever did. You could say she was in a state of grace by her calm and unharried demeanour. She is obviously happy to be back to her tastefully furnished home in Lekki. Like her personality, her home spells affluence and uncluttered sophisticat

Dear readers, guess what? President Obama is said set to pick CNN's DR SANJAY GUPTA as the next Surgeon general of the United States. Would that just be amazing! In a scene from CNN's "Planet in Peril," Dr. Sanjay Gupta stands in a body of water in Africa. Well according to washington reports: "President-elect Barack Obama has offered the job of surgeon general to Dr. Sanjay Gupta , the neurosurgeon and correspondent for CNN and CBS, according to two sources with knowledge of the situation. Gupta has told administration officials that he wants the job, and the final vetting process is under way. He has asked for a few days to figure out the financial and logistical details of moving his family from Atlanta to Washington but is expected to accept the offer." This has to be the best news, the cabinet of the president is shaping up really nicely, if I may say so; what do you say readers?
