A few months ago Academy award nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor received backlash from Nigerians when he said during an interview on the Ellen show while promoting 12 Years A Slave that he was from London.

This did not go down well with many Nigerians who felt the actor did not identify with his Nigerian heritage at all.

Today during the press conference of cast and crew of Half Of A Yellow Sun which took place at The Wheatbaker Hotel in Ikoyi, Lagos, the Oscar nominated actor addressed the incident, saying he is “Nigerian-British” and proud of Nigerian heritage.

We are still on the matter…

Once again Dencia is taking shots at Oscar Award winning Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o over a BET Article accusing Dencia of being threatened by dark skin and being jealous of the 31 year old actress. Please note Lupita did not write this article!

As we all know Dencia has a long running beef with Lupita Nyong’o, who has never once directly addressed the skin lightening entrepreneur. Dencia has never passed on an opportunity to diss Lupita and this occasion was no different, she took to Twitter yesterday to once again take shots at her, when the BET article popped up.

Afrocandy Forced To Beg For Money For Daughter’s Education, Despite Hype From X Rated Movie “Destructive Instinct”

Last year Afrocandy became an internet sensation when she released promo videos for her X Rated movie “Destructive Instinct”. In the trailer you can see a very nekkid Afrocandy performing various sex acts with her co-stars. When I interviewed Afrocandy in June last year and she shocked many by how eloquent, smart and savvy she is. [WATCH IT HERE]

From the interview I felt Afrocandy, who is a single mother to two girls was doing all she could to take care of her children. So it is quite sad to learn that she did not make a dime from the much hyped movie, she has gone on record to say that her distributors in Nigeria played a fast one on her and she has not seen any money from the movie. She is now left with no choice but to plead for money online to send her daughter to college in the States.

It’s no secret that Tiwa Savage & Tunji “Tee Billz” Balogun are celebrating the second part of their wedding ion April 26th  in Dubai. The couple had somehow managed to the venue and other details of the wedding under raps but thanks to someone leaking the wedding invite the details of the much talked about wedding were made public yesterday.

The black and gold invite lists the venue for the wedding service as The Jasmine Yacht which is anchored below Pier 7 Building. A lavish reception is set to follow at The Armani Hotel at the iconic Burj Khalifa in Downtown Dubai.

However I heard that the luxury yacht crashed on April 4th and is in no condition to host any events! The yacht had 95 passengers on board and crashed in the midst of the thunderstorm that swept across parts of the UAE .

I spoke to a staff of The Super Yacht team named Richard and he confirmed the yacht did crash and that The Savage/Balogun wedding service was indeed scheduled for the 26th of April. He also told me all events scheduled to take place on the yacht have been cancelled including Tiwa’s wedding.

A source close to Tiwa’s camp confirmed the yacht crashed and another venue will be chosen.

The yacht management also told me that the luxury boat has been sent for repairs and will not be back for two months. He said the couple have been informed and their money has been refunded.

Looks like the dreaded Ebola Virus which has claimed at least 100s of lives across Central & West Africa may be on it’s way to Nigeria if it isn’t here already. With the first case recorded in neighbouring Ghana, and 10 deaths recorded in Liberia, the World Health Organization said on Tuesday that it expects the disease to continue in West Africa for the next few months.

The disease is believed to be spread through physical contact or contact with fluid of infected persons.It has no cure and there are no preventative vaccines. The Minister of Health, Onyebuchi Chukwu, however, said no case of the disease has been reported in Nigeria. He said,

Like you pointed out, Ebola has been moving eastward towards Nigeria. We are already facing danger from Central African Republic, even with what is happening in Congo; people are also migrating to Chad and Cameroon are also in our borders. So Nigeria is in danger.

The minister said the he federal government will now do more to educate Nigerians on the Ebola virus, through leaflets and jingles to be produced in various languages and aired on Radio, TV and newspaper adverts.

West Africa is seeing the “most challenging” outbreak of Ebola virus since the disease was discovered 40 years ago. Personal hygienc is key! Get tips on how to keep yourself and your family, especially kids, safe from the Ebola virus
