N1.9bn Ebola Intervention Fund Is For New Cars Not Virus

Remember the N1.9 Billion Ebola Intervention fund announced by the Federal Government to manage the deadly Ebola Virus in Nigeria? Yesterday (Aug. 26) the Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu, informed journalists that contrary to reports the N1.9 billion isn’t to fight Ebola but rather for the procurement of vehicles for the ministry.

According to a press release signed by Reuben Abati on behalf of President GEJ, on August 8, N1.9 Billion was released as a Special Intervention Fund for the management of Ebola. Mr. Chukwu has however denied that the money was released for the management of Ebola. The Minister of Health said the money was approved for the Ministry of Health.

He said,

“The N1.9billion approved by the president was for the federal ministry of health. It is not for Ebola fund. It will be used to procure more vehicles for working which have been ordered. It would be used to procure more drugs that have been ordered…and other items.”

OAP Gbemi Olateru Olagbegi Wants You To Know Why You Won’t Find Her Dating An Entertainer…EVER!!!

Gbemi

It’s common knowledge that people tend to date within the circles that they work and socialize in.  Same with the entertainment industry. Singers date rappers – Beyonce & Jay Z, on air personalities date music executives – Toolz & Tunde Demuren and actors date models – Leonardo DiCaprio & pretty much every single Victoria’s secret model!

However one person you won’t find dating anyone in the entertainment industry…EVER is Beat FM OAP Gbemi Olateru Olagbegi.

The 30 year old who was recently reported to be venturing into Nollywood has gone on record to say she would never date within the industry and here’s her reason why

I wouldn’t like to go out with anyone in the entertainment industry. Let’s be honest, apart from the flashy life, lights, camera and action, they are very busy people. It’s not easy, they travel a lot and they are constantly working and worried about their career. Hence, you might not be a priority or you might come down the scale of priority. So, I can’t date anyone in the industry. In some cases, some people are able to manage it properly, they understand each other and they understand the business, so nobody gets jealous if you see your partner talking to the opposite sex for too long

We Totally Love Kim Kardashian & Baby North West’s Matching Outfits – As Mother & Daughter Step Out In All White Everything!

KimKandNorth_that1960chick.com

Recently we have noticed reality TV star Kim Kardashian and her 14 month old daughter with Kanye West rocking matching outfits every time they step out together and we gotta admit we are totally loving the “Mommy & Me” trend.

Yesterday was no different for the pair, who were spotted out and about in L.A. Kim was wearing a white cropped sweater and matching pencil skirt which she teamed with blush coloured Prada heels. While lil North West coordinated with her mommy in an off white vest, white trousers and white mocassins.

Last week they did matching denim. The week before that it was all black everything!

Kim is definitely making sure that North is gearing up become a little fashionista! She has previously spoken about her 14 month old’s already well honed fashion sense and how the baby won’t be caught dead in pink or anything with prints. She said

“North doesn’t really like pink. Like, she’s very neutral…she doesn’t like prints. She hasn’t liked it for her whole life.”

karrueche-tran-disses-blue-ivys-hair-lead

Karrueche Tran is about to feel the wrath of the Beyhive! The on and off girlfriend of Chris Brown took a shot at Beyonce & Jay Z’s two year old daughter and her natural hair. Blue Ivy looked adorable as her and her daddy presented mama Beyonce with her Video Vanguard Award at the MTV VMAs on Sunday night, but 26 year old Karrueche did not think so!.

When she hosted yesterday’s BET’s 106 & Park, Karrueche made fun of Princess Blue saying,

I really did wake up like this, because my parents never comb my hair.

After a quick giggle, Kae said,

Sorry Blue! I love you.

She made the remarks during a skit on the show called “Top Six Things Blue Ivy Thought At The VMAs.”

I don’ think making fun of a two year old’s hair is funny! Beside’s her hair looked nice during the VMAs! Watch Kae’s diss after the jump
