NOLLYWOOD ACTRESS UFUOMA EJENOBOR & STEVEN MCDERMOTT ON CLOUD 9

Ufuoma Ejenobor needs no introduction; she is the former beauty queen cum model now turned notable Nollywood actress. Beauty queen? Yes beauty queen, she was one of the state queens that participated at the Miss Nigeria 2004 and was in fact the first runner-up to the winner- Ene Maya Lawani, who went on to become the longest reigning beauty queen in Nigeria. Ufuoma later went on to represent Nigeria at the Miss Earth 2004 International pageant in the Philippines.

Steven McDermott is an advertising practitioner, who is said to be one of the gurus at the job, he loves to be off the radar, he loves being incognito.

What's the connection between these two? For those who don't know, the duo got married in April of 2010, so they are husband & wife. So what's up about the cloud 9, nothing much, except that the gorgeous actress is presently on 'the 9 Months Course'. Wow! That's nice to know. We came across the beautiful actress yesterday, and we were so happy for her, as we saw her glowing and radiating love and inner peace, carrying her baby bump with much aplomb! So you all can now understand our hyperbole. We hear the duo are presently enjoying ultimate bliss.

We would love to congratulate the expectant mother and also wish mother and child the best of health.

NAKED FOR A CAUSE- TARAJI HENSON,LESLIE BIBB & MARIA MENOUNOS SHED CLOTHES FOR ALLURE MAGAZINE'S NAKED ISSUE.

Why won't our famous celebs/actresses or even actors follow the cue of their superstars counterparts from the other parts of the world. At least we know they love to copy their actions etc a lot. So we think they should copy also in this case.
Gorgeous actress- Taraji P. Henson, American singer and actress, Maria Menounos- American Journalist, Actress, Television Presenter and occasional Professional wrestler and Leslie Bibb- American fashion model and actress all appeared starkers recently inside the Allure Magazine's Naked Truth Issue.

Don't worry it's not Vanguard's Allure Magazine and it's an annual ritual at the U.S based women's beauty magazine of the same name published by Conde Nast, where they showcase gorgeous actors or celebs in their naked glory.

We are waiting for that time, when we would see top Nigerian actresses like Genevieve Nnaji, Rita Dominic, Monalisa Chinda etc in the buff either on the cover of ThisDay Style, Genevieve Magazine or even OK! Nigeria. That would be the day.

WOW PICTURE OF THE WEEK. ARTA DOBROSHI SHOWS OFF ASSETS

If you are a celeb or star and you are loving the attention and would love to swirl or pirouette to show your best side, then you must make sure you have all your modesty intact or else you might just show to all, what you didn't intend to.

Checkout our overly delighted Arta Dobroshi as she had a wardrobe malfunction at the recently concluded Cannes Film Festival.





SAME DRESS, DIFFERENT WEARERS. WHO WORE IT BEST?

The gorgeous dress is a creation by the extra-ordinarily talented Pierre Balmain. We are so sure it must have sold out, if the numbers of the celebs that have worn it is anything to go by.

It was worn very recently by Kanye West's girlfriend Kim Kardashian and she looked really hot pairing it with a pair of boots, other stars that wore the dress were blue-haired music superstar- Katy Perry, Brazilian Supermodel Bombshell- Alessandra Ambrossio- the Victoria's Secret Angel, the very talented actress-Zoe Saldana and superstar Celine Dion.

Since it’s the same dress, but worn by different wearers, each having their own individual style, we would just like to know your opinion on who you all think, wore it best.

Like we love to say- Who Snags it???? Kim K? Katy Perry? Alessandra? Zoe? Or Celine?

DELECTABLE FIFI EJINDU TAKES OVER BURJ AL ARAB!

Burj Al Arab has consistently over the years been voted the most luxurious hotel in the whole world. Some have even said it is the only 7 Stars Hotel in the world. It is where the high and mighty likes to separate themselves from others. Just try to envision this- Reception desks on every floor, rain showers and Jacuzzis in every suite, a Rolls-Royce fleet, butlers on call 24/7, a view of its own private beach- a scenic wonder, you have the choice of 6 award winning Restaurants, World class conference & banqueting venues, just to mention a few of the splendor that awaits anyone who is a guest.

Let's just quote one of the selling points about the Burj- Where you can expect only the highest levels of personalised service, in the most luxurious surroundings imaginable. Meaning that, as far as your mind can go, they have thought about it and provided such facilities for you.

We are so sure you still wondering what we are yapping about. Let's tell you why, The Burj Al Arab on Saturday, June 9, 2012, would play host to a high number of the very well-heeled Nigerians, who are friends, business associates and family members of the very delectable, highly intelligent, gloriously fashionable and very well connected- Fifi Ejindu as she clocks 50.

Waoh!!! She's 50 already? Yes she is and she ain't hiding it, rather she's celebrating reaching the milestone and thanking God the Almighty for keeping her gorgeous and happy, hale and hearty and enjoying the gift of life. So if you haven't received your invite by now, then it’s just that you are......................

The Al Falak Ballroom, would be the convergence point on Saturday and we can tell you all without mincing words, that everyone privileged enough to be there, should expect 7 wonders of the world treatment.

For those who were present at her wondrous London wedding a few years ago at the Dorchester Hotel, they still talk about the splendor of that particular occasion, now Fifi has gone many steps higher to make sure, it’s an occasion, a birthday celebration (soiree, shindig call it whatever) that many would talk about for years to come. We hear that guests would be welcomed by the celebrant on a private yacht that would cruise round the coastline of Dubai, so that all would enjoy the scenic splendor of one of the most beautiful places on Earth. It's afterwards, that guests would be led to the Al Falak Ballroom for the party proper.

We would just love to wish her a very happy birthday in advance .

OLEKU CONCERT 2012. OH WHAT A GROOVE!!!!! PART 1

Waoh!!!!! So it finally happened!!!!!And what a groove, it turned out to be. It had taken 35 long years for it to finally become a reality, that many had thought could never have happened.  But finally on Sunday, May 27, 2012 at the Harbour Point Event Center, on Wilmot Road, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria, history was finally made. WTS Broadcast Limited, owned by Otunba Deji Osibogun finally did what others couldn't make happen. He brought Chief Commander Evangelist Dr. Ebenezer Obey Fabiyi & the Mercurial King of African Beats, the one, the only King Sunny Ade, Chief Sunday Adegeye on the same stage, to perform together for the very first time in 35 years. It was a fantastic feat that everyone must commend.

How did it go? We just can't describe. To a lot of the guests it was like their dreams have finally come true, a reality playing before many eyes that they didn't think could have happened. Just like the concert title-Oleku had tried to convey, it was spectacular, mind-blowing, extra-ordinary, superlative and unbelievably great. The legends really lived up to their Pre-concert hype. Everyone was taken on a roller-coaster ride of fun, re-living the good old days. Can there ever be the likes of these 2 ever again? We pray and hope so.

Just like we had announced before the show, it was just for 800 guests in total, and the venue was packed to the brim, who didn't we see? Some who couldn't believe at first that the show would happen and were now told that it was going on, were offering outrageous amount to get a table, some wanted a table of 8 for #2Million, another billionaire offered that much also for a table, but it was too good, too late.

We had his Royal Majesty-The Olugbo of Ugboland, Ondo State- Oba Obateru Akinrutan and his Queen around, they came to the concert with like 10 of the Ugboland's High Chiefs, also present was the Governor of Lagos State- Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola SAN and his wife Dame Abimbola Fashola, Governor Emeritus of Lagos, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his wife Senator Oluremi Tinubu, who were also special guests, they came in with the National Publicity Secretary of the Action Congress of Nigeria- Alhaji Lai Mohammed, we also saw Ekiti State's Deputy Governor- Mrs. Olufunmilola Adunni Olayinka, Lagos State’s Deputy Governor Hon. Adejoke Adefulire, billionaire Alhaji Arisekola Alao, Alhaji Mufutau Olanihun, Akogun Lekan Alabi, we also saw Mr Fola Adeola- ACN's Vice-Presidential Candidiate at the last election, Former Governor of Ogun State Otunba Gbenga Daniel, Otunba Alex Onabanjo, others were Dewunmi Ogunsanya- Chairman DSTV, Dr. Bolu Akin-Olugbade- who we believe has the highest collection of Rolls Royce presently in Nigeria, Md/CEO SEAGLE Properties- Yemi Lawal & Wife, Dapo Davies Nnadi, Deola Kazeem, Aremo Segun Oniru- Commissioner for Waterfront, Hakeem Muri-Okunola, Demola Seriki, Shade Kazeem, Deola Kamson, Mo Abudu, Yinka Osobu, Yomi Badejo-Okusanya, Bashorun Dele Momodu- Publisher Ovation and Presidential Aspirant at the last election, Funmilola Jolaoso, Bolanle Ayeni, Foluso Domingo, Bolade Jegede,Teju Daranijo, Sakiru Oyefeso MD/CEO Staco Insurance,top fashion designer Remi Lagos, Mako Alabi, Bola Alabi, Biola Alabi Md MNET, Kunle Afolayan, Steve Ayorinde md/editor of National Mirror, Demola Odutola, Mo Abudu TV Hostess, Demola Seriki, Bisi Olatilo, Kunle Coker & Shola Coker, Aisha Oyebode, Senator Florence Ita Giwa, Dele Dosunmu, Chief Mrs. Comfort Omoge, Aare Kamorudeen Ajao Danjuma and so many others too numerous to mention.

All in all, it was a super fantastic concert, the legends gave very good accounts of themselves, the ageless Fatai Rolling Dollar, needs to tell everyone the secret to his youthfulness, but not to lie oooo, Baba Sala has aged, when would we at least do something to help such great icons like Pa Moses Olaiya- Baba Sala, it wouldn't cost us all anything.

Like we said before, we must commend the organisers for a very good job well done- Seun Soyinka was superb, so also was Funke Kuti of FLK, KISS EVENTS- Howie t & Bayo Abdul were fantastic & Otunba Osibogun's crew at WTS all did a marvelous job, so also Maestro's Media.

Come October 2012- It's going to be the BATTLE OF THE VICTORS, you all just have to wait for that.  We would keep you posted.  We have a few pictures to show what went down at the event.  There are more pictures after the break. Watch out for the out and about at the concert next. Praaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EXQUISITE MAGAZINE'S 50TH ISSUE PARTY

One of the most consistent lifestyle magazine in the country-Exquisite Magazine owned by Tewa Onasanya recently celebrated hitting the 50th issue mark.

HOW MOJI AKINKUNMI GOT HER GROOVE BACK, SET TO MOVE TO BANANA ISLAND

Quoting one of the songs of David in Psalm 30:5, Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning, that verse in combination with Romans 8:28- 'And we know that all things work together for good to them that loves God, to them called according to his purpose. These 2 chapters of the great book-The Bible seems to say it all about Moji Akinkunmi formerly Moji Obasanjo.

A couple of seasons ago, it was like all she held dear, had fallen apart. Her marriage to her then husband had crumbled and the attendant hoopla that followed was not good for the ears at all. The then husband had made some terrible allegations bordering on infidelity. Gbenga's accusation then about Moji's relationship with her dad and her dad-in-law were too crazy to be true or to be believed. After the whole hoopla had died down and the divorce sorted, both parties have now gone their separate ways to pick back up the pieces of their lives. While Moji seemed to have recovered quite fast and has gotten her groove back, she’s even gone on to remarry. Gbenga Obasanjo her ex-husband seems to have gone totally underground, maybe incognito might just be the word to describe him now.

Professor & Mrs  Abiodun & Moji Akinkunmi love seems to be getting more intense by the day, which seems to fulfill the 2nd part of Psalm 30:5, about the Joy that cometh in the morning, the debacle of the past seems to have been forgotten and thrown into the dustbin of past history and Moji has gotten a new lease of life, with all things seemingly working for good, we hear that the couple would soon be moving homes, they are moving from their Ikoyi abode to a more palatial edifice on Banana Island. That's moving to the supposed most expensive area of Lagos, where lands are sold for hundreds of millions even billions. So its truly- Joy cometh in the morning. Don't you all think?

TIWA SAVAGE & TEEBILLZ AN ITEM OR WHAT? IS THIS THE PERFECT LOVE MATCH?

We have been inundated by plenty of gist that our sonorous songbird- Tiwa Savage & her handsome Manager- Teebillz are in a love match. Some of those in their industry have even said that they know for a fact, that something sizzling hot is going on between the 2. We have tried to confirm, if truly theirs is a perfect match made in heaven. But mum seems to be the word, as neither of the duo has confirmed nor denied the story.

What we have observed on our own is that, we know we have seen both together many times and we know for a fact that they are very close, they are partners at 323 entertainment owned by both.  We even suspect that they are much more intimate than they let others believe. So we would love to ask the duo, what's going on? Why hide it, if love truly is a beautiful thing?

D BANJ & DAVIDO SIGN THE DEAL- SEALED WITH A ROLEX PRESIDENT WATCH

If all we hear is anything to go by then DbANJ formerly of Mo'Hits, now on his own might have some major surprises for the whole world pretty soon.

But before his new camp would come out to tell the whole world what they have got up their sleeves, let’s just give you all a bit of info we have just heard, though not confirmed. According to our well informed and well planted snoop, D-Banj might have signed on one of the hottest Nigerian artistes right now on the scene, to his yet to be named new Music/Record Label. According to our snoop, the new label would have D banj's younger brother K-Switch who is now known as 'the Product 'as one of the new signings, the change of name might be a way to totally forget the past (Mo'Hits). Everyone seems to be doing all that's possible to forget the past, and move on to pasture's new.

Still yet under this new label is an unnamed American artiste, who is said to be mad hot! (Permit our language), but the real McCoy according to our snoop is the signing of the one, the only Omo BaBa Olowo himself- David Adeleke aka Davido. The deal was said to have been signed, sealed and settled sometime last week, and the new crew were part of the Industry Night which featured Ikechukwu last week, with Dbanj going on stage to perform with Ikechukwu.

Dapo ever the flamboyant one sealed the signings with a gift of a 18kt Gold Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date Watch (which is affectionately called the Rolex President Watch in the U.S) for each of his signees, that's not all each of the artistes on his label can also have any car of their choice to roll in, courtesy of their new label boss. From the feelers we are getting the good times might soon be rolling in again for Dbanj. We all hope and pray so.
