Mo’Cheddah Opens Up Those Bikini Pictures & Taking A Break From The Music Industry

MoCheddahBikiniBody_that1960chickdotcom

Rapper Mo’Cheddah is known for her toned and fit body. In a recent interview the rapper who dropped a new single, Dambori last week, was asked why she has a lot of bikini pictures on her Instagram and her answer was because she works out and loves her body!

I have been working out a lot. I love my body and I am comfortable with  my skin and I tell myself, why not take a picture?  That is the only part of fame I am not comfortable with. It is really hard because you just want to be yourself sometimes. I have made a promise to myself that I would not change who I am or compromise my person for anybody because of people’s opinion. I would do what I like and things that please me. I took a picture and it looked good just like if I take a picture in clothes, I would post it. I posted the picture and before I knew it, it was everywhere.

#PoliceBrutality Drunk Mobile Policeman Who Assaulted 2 Women In Lagos Has Been Arrested

DrunkPoliceman_that1960chickdotcom

A drunken police officer with the Mobile Police, or Mopol, Unit #20 identified as Tafa Mohammed, was filmed with a hidden camera brutalizing two women in the Obalende area of Lagos State. The brutalization was caused because the street food vendor would not give him fish to finish up his beer.

According to the email I received, the food vendor was said to have declined to sell fish alone, except to those buying food with it, a vendor policy that angered the policeman. Mohammed, a mobile policeman, took on a female customer who was buying food from the same vendor at the time he got there, and threw her into the filthy muddy water, before drawing his rifle at the woman..

The horrific video which you can watch below, has now gone viral and caught the attention of  the Nigerian police force who yesterday verified that the cop has been arrested.
