Rihanna parties with Didier Drogba to celebrate Chelsea FC Champion’s League Win

Mrs. Drogba where are you cos Princess Riri is coming for your man and you better be afraid…cos she’s the black Angelina Jolie!

According to MTV UK:

The pair apparently ‘danced the night away’ at a London club. Rihanna joined in with Chelsea FC‘s celebrations after they won the Champions League on Saturday (19th May), by partying with striker Didier Drogba, who has now announced he is leaving the club after eight years.

The star tweeted a series of snaps of her posing with the Ivory Coast international, with The Sun reporting RiRi ‘hunted down’ the West London team at London club Boujis after watching Jay-Z and Kanye Wests Watch The Throne show at the O2. A source told the tabloid: “Rihanna joined Didier, Jose Bosingwa, Salomon Kalou, Michael Essien and Raul Meireles and held court on their table.

“The players were chuffed to meet her but she bonded most with Didier and was dancing away with him.”

The 24-year old Bajan accompanied a picture of herself and Drogba with the message:  “THEE DIDIER DROGBA #thereisaGod.”

President Goodluck Jonathan gets his model on for Italian Vogue

Check out Presido Goodluck Jonathan channeling his inner model in the latest edition of Italian Vogue. Presido  is rocking his trademark look and looking very chic…I must say.

In the midst of everything going on in Nigeria, I’m so pleased to see GEJ focusing on the really important things. I guess fashion magazine shoots is what the country really needs right now…don’t you think? Maybe the publicity generated from this will eliminate the Boko Haram problem, or perhaps give us constant power supply and maybe even hold the answer to eradicating corruption in public office. AMEN!

The photo was taken in Abuja when photographer Francesco Carrozzini visited the country. Here’s what he had to say about meeting the president (Note it was originally written in Italian I have used Google translate to translate to English…so some of it may be off)

Wizkid & Ice-Prince nominated for BET Awards 2012

The nominations are in for the 2012 BET Awards and Naija’s Wizkid & Iceprince both bag a nomination each in the BEST INTERNATIONAL ACT (AFRICA) category. Other nominated acts in this category are Sarkodie (Ghana), Lira (South Africa), Camp Mulla (Kenya) and Mokobe (Mali). Tuface & D’Banj took home the award last year.

Kanye West leads the pack with seven nominations, Beyoncé follows with six and Jay-Z with five.

Congrats to our boys Wizzy & Ice…here’s hoping that (a) an African act performs at this year’s event and (b) BET airs the winner of the BEST INTERNATIONAL ACT (AFRICA)’s award speech (they haven’t in the past) and that is just crap! Why give an award if you aren’t going to air it?!?

The ceremony will be going down on July 1st 2012 in Los Angeles at the Shrine Auditorium on July 1st 2012, and will be hosted by Samuel L Jackson.

Nigeria’s 1st transgender man takes part in beauty pageant as a woman…

…And he did extremely well in the Miss International Queen pageant where he came 1st Runner Up. Not since Agbani Darego took home the Miss World crown in 2001 has Nigeria done so well in an international beauty pageant.

Meet Miss Sahhara also known by his legal name Oche. He is a transgender man. Oche who was born male took part in the Miss International Queen beauty pageant which is strictly for transgenders last year. For those that don’t know “transgender describes a person, male or female, who dresses, behaves or presents themselves in a way that is different from their gender norm. Transgender includes transvestites/crossdressers, Drag Queens/Kings. It does NOT include transsexual people”.

‘Transsexual’ describes a person, male or female, born with a congenital neurological intersex condition (Benjamin’s syndrome). Although transsexualism almost always requires some form of medical intervention up to and including genital surgery, it is not defined by, nor restricted to, that treatment.

For those of you concerned about his safety in Nigeria seeing as he is breaking the country’s strict anti gay laws. Sahara/Oche is safely tucked away in the UK…so no 14 years jail time for him.
