SAD SAD DAY YESTERDAY AS ROBBERS STRUCK AT GTBANK SABO, SAGAMU


It's a day many would not forget for as long as they live, when terrifying looking men of the underworld struck in broad daylight at a branch of GTBank, Sabo, Sagamu in Ogun State yesterday November 24, 2011. Carting away a substantial amount of money, value of which has not been fully ascertained and in the wake of the dare-devil attack they left pain, anguish and irreparable sorrow.

The heavily armed robbers were said to announced themselves early yesterday morning by shooting sporadically into the air to scare all and sundry and caused commotion, in the pandemonium that ensured, they had easy access to the bank, and carted away a yet to be disclosed, but thought to be large amount of money and other valuables they could lay hands on. In the aftermath, several of the bank staffs were said to have been injured, several fatality was recorded in their bid to escape, unconfirmed report says about 10 people made up of vigilantes and bystanders were killed by stray bullets.

Curiously, we hear that apart from the fact that the money stolen and other valuables were INSURED, the staff members whose lives are constantly online in the course of their jobs do not enjoy the same privilege! .  We tried getting the response of the GTBank spokesperson-Ogechi Nwachukwu on the development, but she didn't respond to our enquiry.

FOLAKE MAJIN AND DAUGHTERS STAGE FASHION SHOW



Fashion designer Folake Majin is set to unveil “The Royal collection” alongside “The Breathless Experience” Collection by Miss Majin and “The Circle Revolution Collection” by GM4FM’s Gogo Majin

The ‘strictly by invitation’ event will be showcased at the Civic Center on Sunday the 20th of November starting from 6pm.

4 CAUGHT IN THE ACT!!!!!!!!!!


For the sake of decency, we have decided not to publish the pictures the way we got it and have decided to cover all the vitals and even part of their faces. We are quite sure you are still wondering what we might be on about.



Lastnite we got a picture, that showed 4 supposedly young, Nigerian undergraduates, said to be students of a Federal University in a state in the middle belt part of Nigeria. We are quite sure you are still wondering what could have been so outrageous about the 4 students! The 4 were supposedly caught while engrossed, excitingly devouring each other’s erogenous zones in erotic bliss, so far gone in the act were they, that they didn't know when someone walked in, in shock at the scene before her, the unwelcome intruder raised an alarm which attracted other students and the 4 ladies were paraded shame-faced before all in the NUDE!!.

AMA & POJU'S WEDDING

POJU AND AMA


By popular demand we had to do everything possible to get some pictures from the Nuptial ceremony that later became an anti-climax. Many had expected a lot of fanfare as Ama the daughter of the former highest ranking diplomat in the world - her dad was the former UN secretary General-Kofi Annan; was getting married, many had thought many top government functionaries, past and present heads of government and many other celebrities would attend the wedding ceremony. But alas!, the only celebrities in attendance at the wedding in Ghana, were many socialite friends of the bride. In all it was a very understated ceremony, that some even thought was a bit too understated.

THE SUPER SPECTACULAR VICTORIA'S SECRET SHOW.


We still wonder why? if it’s only just about the Lingerie. The media hype that follows this brand is 2nd to none and their brand ambassadors are a selection of some of the best and best paid in the industry and the sheer magnitude of their shows is always indescribable. The brand recently had another super duper showcase with Nicki Minaj, Adam Levine of Maroon 5, Kanye West and Jay Z as special attraction. Here is the show in living colour.





MFR FOR STEPHANIE OKEREKE & 5 OTHERS


While some like acclaimed Poet, Novelist, Critic Professor Chinua Achebe acknowledged as one of the greatest living African writers & noted Politician and a member of the National Assembly-Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila would scorn the National Honors and rightly so, we believe their reasons for the rejection of the National honors, twice by the Professor were valid. Many others are so full of joy, that their nation has recognized them and rightly honored them.

56,000 POUNDS FOR 16TH BIRTHDAY

THE GIFT WRAPPED SUV-REPUTED TO BE THE BEST SUV IN THE WORLD

KENDALL & ELATED MOM
Some sure know how to spend the money!!!. For clocking 16 -SWEET SIXTEEN-like some would like to call it; Kim Kardashian's younger sister Kendall Jenner got a fantastic birthday surprise worth a whopping $90,000 about 56,000 Pounds to make the day. That's the cost of a brand new, black 2012 Range Rover SUV. Isn't she just a very lucky young girl?

HOT OR NOT? WHAT DO YOU THINK?

She's one of those entertainers that we can say has owned this year-2011. Fantastic album sales, sold out concerts and always permanently in the media eye. One other thing she's known for apart from her very raunchy dance routine is her va va voom style of dressing, some describe it as overly sexy, while others just feels she's just being expressive. In this picture while in London she's showing her garter belts hooked to her pantyhose for all to see, and those American flag micro-shorts and boots are just so........... Is she HOTTTT!!!! OR NOT????. What do you think?

SPECIAL SPOTLIGHT ON MIDE'S MANE

ANINO

Anino is a new entrant to the hair industry. This is light and delicate hair with a very fine texture. It comes in straight and wavy textures, Anino has a high density and it has a lot of volume. It also retains moisture remarkably well. This hair comes in natural colors- brown; light brown, red and sometimes auburn.

Anino comes mostly in long lengths (from 16’’ upwards) but we sometimes have them in 12’’ and 14’’.

Anino curls well with heat but loves bendy rollers.

EX-BEAUTY QUEEN'S DILEMMA



Who is after Omowunmi Akinnifesi? That's the hot question on several people's mind right now. Not too long ago there was this unsubstantiated report linking the delectable and brilliant ex-queen to a very happily married and very hardworking Chief Executive of a State in the South-West, a connection we heard she vehemently denied.

AT THE RECENT MISS WORLD

 Then it was the turn of the young C.E.O of a cable network station, who is also married and who went ballistic on hearing the tales about his supposed amorous relationship with the ex-queen. A story he did not appreciate at all. 

Now the naysayers have come up with another tales by the moonlight, in the hope that some terrible scandal would blow open, a tabloid and some online publications very recently again linked her to the Chief Tax collector in Lagos, another very happily married man, whose daughter is getting married this weekend in Dubai, the beautiful capital of the U.A.E., where these tales emanate from we do not know.

Not too long ago Omowunmi's publicist sent out a strongly worded message warning all not to believe the tales by moonlight and that it was the fabrication of some irresponsible elements. Now another story has come out. What's going on?

Who are the evil people hell-bent on bringing a young, very hardworking and brilliant girl down?

Or is it just like she said in her write-up (The blessing and curse of the beauty queen) - ‘another annoying issue is the stereotype that beauty queens sleep around. That just gets under my skin. Why must this be so?.....You all can read the full write-up at Bola Akinboade's blog.

FAMILY ON FIRE-THE PREMIERE



SAM ANWUZIA CEO OF ZAFAA AWARDS & YETUNDE ODUWOLE

RAMSEY NOUAH & FAN

SEGUN ARINZE & FUNKE AKINDELE-AKA JENIFA

Just like we had promised, we bring to your viewing pleasure the happenstances at the premiere of the new film-Family on Fire by legendary producer/director-Tade Ogidan, which held last weekend in London and had many of the stars in the film in attendance. VENUE was: Lighthouse, 262 Camberwell Rd, SE5 0DP.

PLEASE DRIVE CAREFULLY, LIFE HAS NO DUPLICATE!!!!


We feel so sad writing about this, but we just have to. Its the ember months-October, November and December and not much before another year would end. We don't know why, but there is a general belief that more accidents and crime occur during these months, so the need for us all to be more careful especially when driving.

Last night a supposedly very terrible auto crash occured, that claimed the lives of 3 young Nigerians, who could have become leaders of tomorrow-2 young ladies and a guy. The picture of the 3 dead is so gory we cannot afford to publish. The trio were said to have made rounds at some fun-spots and just after they left a very popular club/joint they had a ghastly auto crash they left all 3 dead, we could not get proper details as there are conflicting reports about where the accident occured-Either the mainland or the Island.

Contrary to some information, the joint-REHAB on the Island they were thought to have been coming from didn't open this weekend, they had been shut for renovation since November 6, and would be till the 1st week of December,2011.
We can only commiserate with the families of the dead ones and hope God would give them the fortitude to bear the terrible loss.
But we would love to appeal to everyone to always drive carefully and also not to drink and drive or even drive when drunk.
