Back in July I told you the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) was trying to woo Nollywood actress Kate Henshaw, to run for the Cross Rivers State House Of Assembly under the PDP umbrella.

The reason they wanted Kate is because of her goodwill, popularity and hardwork, Kate is a people person and she’s the perfect candidate for any party.

What Ceasefire? Boko Haram Kill 8 In Borno Barely 24 Hours After Government Announced Ceasefire Agreement

Boko-haram-shekau

On Friday (Oct. 17) the Nigerian Government announced that they had reached a ceasefire agreement with terror group Boko Haram. [READ HERE IF YOU MISSED IT]

Clearly Boko Haram isn’t here for the ceasefire because barely 24 hours after the ceasefire they attacked a village in Borno state, killing 8 people!

According to Punch, about 20 Boko Haram fighters in two pick-up vans stormed Maikadiri in Abadam Local Government Area, northern part of Borno on Friday evening, shooting into homes.

Can someone tell us the true status of this “ceasefire agreement”? Cos if BH is on board with it why are they still attacking and killing people? The Nigerian government also said as part of the ceasefire agreement BH have agreed to release the over 200 abducted Chibok school girls…it’s been over 48 hours since the ceasefire was announced…they girls haven’t been released!

TimiandBusolaDakolo_Aug_that1960chick.com

Nigerian men are known for cheating on the wives on the regular…it is accepted in our society. But Timi Dakolo is not one to cheat on his wife and he never will. In a recent interview with Nigeria Tribune, Timi opened up about his career, getting shot & marriage.

When asked if he could cheat on his wife he said,

My wife is a Kogi woman. She has everything I need. Like I said earlier, it’s hard to cheat because you will be hiding your phone, locking it and running helter skelter, when you are not an actor. I make sure she knows where I am, If I say I’m coming home soon, I try to keep the promise.

This question sef! Was he supposed to yes???? LOL

He also talks about how he settles differences with his wife, Busola. Read more after the jump

“We Are Not Friends”, Wizkid Replies Saeon After She Put Him On Blast

SAEON-15

This week has been “Put Wizkid on blast” week, first it was Samklef , then Saeon and it just escalated from there.

A few days ago fast rising R & B singer Saeon expressed her anger with Wizkid, whom she said she had paid N1.5 Million to feature on her single “Boogie Down” and it’s video, but he had done nothing to help her promote or even acknowledge it when it came out.

According to Hip Hop World Mag, Wizkid took to twitter yesterday to address the Saeon issue, he wrote

It was strictly work. When did we even start talking that we should be friends like that? She came to me, no not me directly, to my manager and asked for a collabo. Normally i don’t charge my friends but hey she came with some cash and i gladly obliged.

I even gave her 10 percent discount. Thats a very generous move because it took her a month to get my attention. After that, it’s back to our separate lives. We are not friends.

SHADEEEEEEEEE

Watch Wizkid and Saeon in the video that’s causing all the beef, after the jump

Clarion Chukwura Says Entertainers Going Into Politics Are Doing So For Monetary Gain!

2-Clarion Chukwurah

In the last few months quite a number entertainers like Desmond Elliot, 9ice, Julius Agwu, Bob Manuel Udokwu, Tony Tetuila and a few others have declared their intentions to venture into politics come 2015.

But some have questioned their motives including veteran actress Clarion Chukwura who has said that some of them are going into politics “because they are not getting much money from their vocations.”

In an interview with Punch Newspaper, she said

The motive of those who are embracing partisan politics is purely monetary. Let us call a spade a spade. If you tell me that you want to go into politics to serve the people, I would want to look at your record first. I want to see what you have done to better the lives of the people in your immediate community. How many boreholes have you sunk in the community? How many hours of community service have you given for free over the last four or five years? How well are you known as somebody who yearns for improvement in social development?
