Gay sex marriage has been banned in Nigeria. Under the proposed law, gay couple's who marry face 15 years imprisonment, Witnesses and guests also face 10 years imprisonment!!! Other additions to the bill include making it illegal to register gay clubs or organisations, as well as criminalizing the "the public show of same-sex amorous relationships directly or indirectly".

'Racist Britian'...

I would like to believe that the lady in the video below is speaking for a sad, teeny-weeny minority. I hope I am right. However, *clears throat* I've been living in Britain for short while now and I won't say I haven't noticed the 'eye' the spits, comments and the faces some of them make when I pass by, I no send them. It's their country, let them do as they wish.

What is annoying and disgusting however, is the regard and the way WE treat them when they come into our own countries, like they are mini gods, and that is pathetic. We even sell out our own people! I don't blame them, I blame our government for making the grass greener on the other side. Regardless of it all, we are all God's children and should learn to accommodate each other.

*Nagrega? I think she was trying to say Nigeria! lol

When my face collapsed...

It's Thanksgiving in America and thinking about what I'm thankful for just brought back some memories to my mind.

This time last year nor be small thing! I woke up one morning and I just had this weird feeling around my face...I went to the mirror and Lo and Behold brethren, my face had collapsed; one half of my face could not respond and the other half did...my speech was a bit slurred,one eye no dey close, i couldn't drink from a cup cos the water would spill...the one wey pain me pass, I could not smile!This is not a joke...

I went to the hospital and when I reach there the doctor called all his smallies to come and see me-the scapegoat',they used me like lab specimen. He called it  Bells Palsy. I panicked, I really did, if you wake up one morning and discover your smile don bend, you will know what I'm talking about. I hid my self in my house, I just dey reason say, 'so na so I go do wedding with half face?' tufiakwa! all my dreams of the 'bellanaija wedding' vamoosed from my medulla oblangata...I called my mum, she said 'bells kini? back to sender'...

[OPINION]: Queen cheats on King with his friend...whats your take?

The King of Swaziland, Mswati III evicted his 12th wife from the Palace for allegedly cheating on him with a former Justice. King Mswati III married Queen Dube, former Miss Swaziland when she was just 16years old. Under Swazi tradition the King is permitted to pick a new bride every year from the most beautiful ladies in Swaziland who come to dance 'topless' for him at the annual Reed Dance Festival *claps hands*

The evicted Queen Dube claimed that her husband, the King, has not seen her, talk less of of touched her in a year...I honestly cannot blame her right now considering the circumstances; body no be firewood,omode kekere are e. Plus the King has 13 wives in total...how can he satisfy them all? 14 women for 1 man!

What do you guys think?

BOKO HARAM's TERMS FOR NEGOTIATION O_O


The radical Islamist sect, popularly known as Boko Haram, has said that they will not dialogue with the Federal Government (FG) until all their members who have been arrested are released.

Spokesperson of the group, Abul Qaqa, who disclosed the groups demands on Thursday called on President Goodluck Jonathan; Senate President, David Mark; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal; and the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Bello Adoke, to respond to their request or they would not relent in their attacks.

WHAT SHOULD WE SHARE?


About a week ago I was having a 'question and answer' session on twitter and on facebook and the question was: What is healthy to share? Should you share toothbrush with your spouse? Or panties (yes, pata!) with your siblings? How about the frequent sharing of towels with friends? Does it signify the intimacy between the 'sharers'? Does it mean if I can't share my boyfriends toothbrush I love him less? O_O

I remember one time like that I go visit one of my friend and I forgot to take my towel along (anyone who knows me knows I always forget something when travelling, why me?!). So as I wan baff I noticed the towel was not in the bag, so I proceeded to the shower and cleaned myself up with my nightwear. My dear friend offered her towel but i declined with immediate alacrity...oh well that was before I learned the art of diplomacy! I could tell that she was not happy with me sha.

Kate Henshaw Nuttall and Husband Divorce!


So the gist is that Nollywood actress Kate Henshaw Nuttall and hubby are going their separate ways after 12 years of marriage. The marriage which is blessed with a daughter, 11, packed up few months ago due to 'irreconcilable differences'. Apparently Kate is a very busy actress while Rod her husband is equally away on business.

Oh well....what can I say?

EXCERPT: THE SMALL PRINT!!!



CHAPTER ONE

The moment he stepped into room 415 and saw Jennifer Lennox sitting behind the polished mahogany table, Wale Ademola knew he was a dead man. He shut the glass panelled door behind him with a click and glared. It had to be an illusion. He checked again. Nope. This was for real. She was here. What on earth was his ex wife doing in his office?


“Good morning Wale.” The woman sitting next to Jennifer spoke first. Her name was Coleen something from HR. She’d interviewed him only last year, at the start of his job as a temp administrator. She peered at him. “Is something wrong?


He started to come forward, stumbled and bumped into a stationery cupboard. “Sorry. I… I must have the wrong room. I am here for a promotion interview for the trainee project manager position.” It had to be the wrong room.


Coleen waved a piece of paper at him. “You didn’t get the confirmation email?”
