SHYNE RETURNING TO BELIZE VIDEO!!

Check out the video of rapper Shyne returning to Belize after a deportation order. He apparently looks guant but then again he has been through a lot. Who knew, "The Brooklyn-based rapper was born in Belize, where his father is currently the prime minister and is set to welcome his estranged son. Shyne was raised stateside by his mother, who reportedly is based in New Jersey after relocating from New York following her son's trial in 2001. Michelen said it came down to Shyne making the decision to either "fight from detention or fight from freedom," and he chose the latter. " Source His dad is the prime minister of Belize? Interesting.

The internet has been going wild with this hoax, kanye west supposedly died in a bizarre car crash in Los Angeles involving two luxury cars early this morning leaving rapper Kanye West dead, a second injured, a third arrested for gross vehicular manslaughter! Not true. According to MTV, "At press time, it was unknown where the rumor started, but some were pointing to the image board 4chan.org as the origin of the phony report that West had died in a crash involving two custom cars in Los Angeles. It quickly blossomed into e-mail chains and comment threads on Facebook and Twitter. Computer security blog Sophos.com tracked the origins of the scam, tying it to hackers who used the rumor to push the false reports to the top of Internet search engine results.

SNIPPLET FROM THE NEW UPCOMING NAIJA STEAMY NOVEL?

Okay I just got this in my inbox, remember I blogged about the novel ABEKE, which will be available for download sometime in march according to the authors. Well here is an unedited snippet. Your comments of course are welcomed CHAPTER 1 “Are you coming over Abeke?” That was Rex calling over the phone. He always had a way with words. Why in the world would I want to attend his party? Could it be because his father is the governor of Lagos or could it be because I am just plain bored with his antics? “Abeke? Did you hear me or are you suddenly deaf?” I heard his voice once again through my cell phone. Oh goodness, I just wanted to hang up the phone already. But for some stupid reason, I could not bring myself to. Well who cared anyways it was his phone credits not mine. “Listen I am going to send the driver to pick you up on Saturday, the party is at the Vortex on queens drive, be ready. Oh and one thing, you have to wear white. It is an all white party.” Before I could utter a

AUDIO OF USHER'S 911 CALL!

TMZ retrieved the audio from Usher’s 911 call which he placed explaining that his car had been keyed after an argument with his ex-wife Tameka Raymond. I’m curious as to how TMZ obtained it then again they are TMZ. I only have one question. How does someone who calls 911 get placed on hold ? Isn’t 911 for emergencies? Is this an ATLANTA THING?

Chimamanda Adichie: The danger of a single story VIDEO!

This video is certainly a must see video. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's novel Half of a Yellow Sun has helped inspire new, cross-generational communication about the Biafran war. In this and in her other works, she seeks to instill dignity into the finest details of each character, whether poor, middle class or rich, exposing along the way the deep scars of colonialism in the African landscape. Adichie's newest book, The Thing Around Your Neck, is a brilliant collection of stories about Nigerians struggling to cope with a corrupted context in their home country, and about the Nigerian immigrant experience. Adichie builds on the literary tradition of Igbo literary giant Chinua Achebe—and when she found out that Achebe liked Half of a Yellow Sun, she says she cried for a whole day. What he said about her rings true: “We do not usually associate wisdom with beginners, but here is a new writer endowed with the gift of ancient storytellers.” "When she turned 10 and read C

FIRST PICTURE OF JENNIFER HUDSON'S SON!

So adorable, Jennifer Hudson is pictured with her precious handsome son in the latest edition of People magazine. People magazine asked the following questions:  Jennifer Hudson and son David Photo by: Derek Blanks / Ken Barboza Associates / Hilton Media Group "How hard was it keeping your pregnancy under wraps? "David and I were the only people who knew for a long time. I would forget I was pregnant, it was so easy. I didn’t have any morning sickness, no cravings either. I just thought, ‘Oh, well, we’ll wait until it’ll tell on itself.’ I didn’t show until I was seven months so that made it easy right there." Your son was delivered via C-section, what was your recovery like? "Everybody told me how much it was going to hurt afterwards but I think I have a different tolerance for pain than others. By that night after I had the baby, I'm like, 'Look, I can’t sit in this bed anymore. I’ve got to get up!’ I’ve been up and about since he was born. To me

A MUST READ BY THE NEW YORK TIMES ON PUTTING AFRICAN STYLE ON THE PAGE!!!

Special Report Putting African Style on the Page By ROBB YOUNG Sub-Saharan Africa doesn’t bring to mind the image of a woman with perfectly manicured nails flipping through glossy magazines in search of the latest handbag or celebrity haircut. Yet such women are there, and in far greater numbers than the media’s portrayal of Africa might suggest. In wealthy neighborhoods of Lagos; Nairobi; Luanda, Angola; Dakar, Senegal, and the like, ladies of leisure, successful businesswomen and aspirational middle-income housewives make up an attractive demographic that, in the past, relied on international fashion magazines for style and beauty information. But in the past few years, while Condé Nast, Hearst and Hachette Filipacchi were expanding throughout Asia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East, a handful of African publishers was busy staking claims to this publishing territory. The result has been a wave of new glossies, like Arise, Haute, Helm and True Love, that put an African
