Goldie-21

I honestly can not believe I am typing this now!

I’m in such shock, my jaw dropped when I saw this a few moments ago on Twitter.

But it seems singer Goldie Harvey, who was an artiste on Kennis’ Music label and represented Nigeria at the Big Brother Star Game has died.

According to Linda Ikeji, she received a call from her best friend Denrele Edun, who told her Goldie died a few minutes ago in his arms at Reddington Hospital in Victoria Island.

In what can only be described as a tragic twist Goldie, who was at this weekends’ Grammy awards just returned from the US today and something went horribly wrong. She passed away about an hour ago at Reddington Hospital VI.

This is the worst news ever! My heart goes out to Goldie’s family and all those who loved her. I can not believe this. It is so tragic. Goldie was 28 years old, she had a few projects in the works including a reality TV show with best friend Denrele Edu

Rest In Peace…Goldie, RIP…The worst news…The absolute worst

It’s About Time! Could A Nigerian or Ghanaian Become The Next Pope?

A few days ago Pope Benedict stunned  Catholic faithfuls and observers around the world by announcing his resignation which will take effect from the end of the month. Traditionally, the only way out of the papacy has been through death. But Pope Benedict has opted to go out in dignity rather than wither away in senility and declining health like his predecessor Pope John Paul II.

Now that Pope Benedict’s time is almost over, attention is shifting to who will succeed him and making the short list are two black, West African men who’ve risen to prominence and influence within the Catholic Church:  Cardinal Francis Arinze, of Nigeria and Cardinal Peter Turkson, of Ghana.

If either were to be selected, it would be a historic event on par with President Barack Obama’s election as the first black president of the U.S.

Terry G Blatantly Disrespects Women In Latest Video [Pictures]

Pictures from the set of the video shoot for musician Terry G’s soon to be released video for “Pull Off” have just surfaced on line, and judging from the pictures it’s what we have come to expect from Nigerian video, i.e. scantily clad women & a lot of dancing, but what was Terry’s blatant disrespect for women.

In one of the pictures you can see Terry G with his foot on the lingerie clad body of one of the video girls…like really? Is this what it has come to?

As a woman I feel angered by this and even angrier at the girl who would let some random ‘celeb’ blatantly disrespect her this way all for a cheque. At the end of the day how much do you get paid for someone to put his ugly animal print sneakers on you?! I’m sure it’s not more than 50,000 naira…nonsense!

Needless to say this disrespect for women goes a long way, public figures like Terry G need to understand that whether they like it or not, they are role models, young boys & girls will see this and think it’s okay to treat & be treated with disrespect.

At a special reception hosted by the President & First lady Goodluck Jonathan, in honour of the victorious Super Eagles team, reigning champions of Africa following their AFCON 2013 win which just concluded in Abuja a few minutes ago.

The President following his speech, surprised the entire team & technical staff with National Honours, Cash & a plot of land each in Abuja.

Here’s what they each get:

Head Coach Stephen Keshi was conferred CON (Commander of The Order of The Niger), 10 Million Naira Cash & a plot of land in Abuja

Team Captain Joseph Yobo was conferred MON (Member of The Order of the Niger), awarded 5 Million Naira Cash & a plot of land in Abuja

While the rest of the team was conferred with the OON (Officer of The Order of the Niger), awarded 5 Million Naira Cas & a plot of land.

All these were given to them at the ceremony including their medals, cheques & land allocation papers. #NoDulling

I’m so happy for these guys, cos no one believed they could do it (myself included), and they exceeded everyone’s expectations, even theirs. They have brought so much joy to a country badly in need of some good news, and for that they deserve everything they are being blessed with.
