OUT AND ABOUT AT OMAWUMI'S TIMELESS ALBUM LAUNCH

OMAWUMI



Waje and friend


Omawumi for us is a gift of heaven for Nigeria. She's a super talented singer/musician, a consummate one at that who is very blessed by the creator with her very own special gift that's so unique to her. We particularly love her afrocentric vibe and energy which is always ever obvious in her sound. Which really shows she's very proud of her heritage and wouldn't sell it on the platform of cheap popularity, like many do.

Her voice is awesome, her command of her craft is exceptional to say the least and her stage craft mind-blowing to add to it.

So yesterday, Thursday, June 22, 2017 at the Terra Kulture, her friends, admirers and fans alike gathered together to celebrate the launch of her new album titled, TIMELESS. Which means sound to reflect the evergreen nature of her essence and delivery.

We saw her best pal of life, Waje there giving support, we also saw Debola Williams of Red Media, ace designer Ohimai Atafo, dance hall/galala legend Daddy Showkey, super great musician and producer Corbhams Asuquo, Tosin Martins, fellow MTN fame contestant and actual winner Timi Dakolo, Yets Asika, veteran designer Data Okorodudu, former music association boss Tony Okoroji, top event coordinator and owner of Enthyst Events Ndidi Obioha, Noble Igwe of 360 Nobs and very many others.

As expected, Omawumi the singing minstrel and consumate performer gave a good account of herself, taking the crowd through the songs on the new album to the delight of all, especially showing why many love her to bits as a good performer.

We were there to cover the event in dazzling colours.

JYOTI MATHAROO CLOCKS 33 AND CELEBRATES IN SPAIN WITH FANFARE



One half of the very fashionable Indian-Canadian socialite sisters, Jyoti Matharoo clocked 33 a few days ago and like they are known to do, both had massive fun celebrating each other.

To make the day memorable for both sisters especially the birthday gal, they both (they are like Siamese twins always everywhere together) flew from North America, in Canada to be more precise to idyllic Spain, in beautiful Valencia & Barcelona to mark the happy day.

It must have been some helluva fun, judging from the colourful and funtustic pictures we came across, as both sisters are seen lounging and soaking up the sun like some kinds of goddesses, relaxing after much adventures.

Both sisters are well known for not compromising in any way and manner on what pleases them, be it fashion, fun and lifestyle. They are unrepentant mistresses of unbridled fun and enjoyment, who lives the jetset life (Ibiza, St.tropez, Monaco, Miami, Las Vegas etc) without any form of apologies to anyone whatsoever.

Much has they have faced much troubles in Nigeria and the avalanche of bad press that followed, it's like their past troubles are what it just says,.......... past.

So they both seemingly, have gotten their groove back on.



PDP'S SENATORIAL CANDIDATE IN OSUN STATE DEMOLA ADELEKE DAZZLES ALL WITH HIS DANCE STEPS

video

Dr Demola Adeleke is late Isiaka Adeleke's younger brother and also a brother to Davido's billionaire dad, Deji Adeleke.

He is the PDP candidate for the next upcoming election to fill the post left by his late elder bro, the former Governor of Osun State known very well by his moniker "Serubawon" which means scare them.

Didn't know he is a damn fine dancer until we saw this hilarious video.

Check it out. 

WHEN THE UNDISPUTED KING OF DANDIES-SIR JOHN OBAYUWANA ADDED A YEAR







There's no doubt about who Sir John Obayuwana is. The man at the helm at Polo Ltd, Nigeria's number one luxury, lifestyle brand that sells some of the best watch and pen brands in the world, likes of (Rolex, Roger Dubuis, Longines, Frederique Constant, Cartier, Chopard, MontBlanc etc) in Nigeria, has held us all under his super magic spell unobstructively for so long, mesmerising us continually and unabatedly.

Sir Obayuwana, is the dandy dad (daddy yo) of the equally super stylish, Jennifer Obayuwana, who is better referred to as the underboss of her dad's brand, where she has brought loads of "oomph" since she came on board a couple of years back as an Executive Director.

When you talk about style and the purveyors of it in the extreme form, this "gentleman par excellence" has it, in over abundance. In fact everything about him defines it, he defines the phrase "cognoscenti" with every fibre of his being.

You need to see him at work, dressed to the nines in very sophisticated pieces, with a time machine of class to add to the whole ensemble for you to better understand what we are on about. It's most definitely not only an out of work thing with him. For he is always on point at all times, never out of place. Very finicky to a fault.

IS OBANIKORO THE NEXT GOVERNOR OF LAGOS? HAS HE TRULY CROSS CARPETED TO THE RULING APC?


The rumour has been rife. It has gotten the media into overdrive with speculations. Musiliu Obanikoro himself has not helped matters at all. He has been hobbnobbing with the former opposition members, while still claiming to be member of his party. It's like he is intentionally playing a game.

From all indicatioms he is APC in spirit and soul, but maybe not yet bodily.

Many have thought that finally after all the intentional deflections of many weeks, that the former PDP perennial governorship contestant and former Defence Minister during the reign of Dr. Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan might have finally jumped ship and has again gone to pitch his tent with his mentor again in the person of ASIWAJU Bola Ahmed Tinubu's APC.

Those who could read body language very well had predicted the move since, but apparently MUSILIU OBANIKORO, intentionally wanted to mix the people for a while first, whether to gauge their mindset before doing what is obvious that he would most definitely and some say certainly do.

Some have also speculated that this move, might also be a way by some bloc, to send signals somewhat to the incumbent action Governor, in the person of his excellency, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, who has so far defied everyone's description has he seem to be in such a hurry to obliterate for good, not for bad, every record of achievements made by all his predecessors combined, except maybe Alhaji Lateef Jakande who was exceptional during his reign and time.

MIKE ADENUGA'S FAVOURITE DAUGHTER BELLA DISU ADDS ANOTHER PORTFOLIO AS SHE BECOMES DIRECTOR AT JULIUS BERGER

Bella & elder sister Oyin


By June 30, 2017 Belinda Adenuga-Disu, better known to most as Bella Disu, the gorgeous and brilliant 2nd daughter (some say favourite child) of reclusive billionaire, Otunba Dr. Michael Agbolade Adenuga, "Dr Mike Adenuga for short of the Globacom fame, would have assumed the role of a Non-Executive Director at the biggest construction giant in Nigeria, Julius Berger Nigeria PLC.

She was one of the 2 new directors the company announced were coming on board very recently. 

It has been a steady but sure, slow but well assured career trajectory for this gorgeous but very quiet lady, since she arrived back to Nigeria after her studies in the United States a few years ago. If all goes well, maybe or most likely she might be the one to take over the reigns of her dad's conglomerate (fingers crossed).

GORGEOUS ADUNNI ADE HEADLINES XCLAMATIONS RESORT 2018 COLLECTION




The brand owned by Tomi Rotimi has always been known for its very clean lines and attention to the minutest details.

So the resort 2018 collection headlined by the gorgeous actress and entertainer, ADUNNI ADE followed the same pattern. Why change a winning formula so it seems.

The wearer would greatly appreciate what they have gotten, as it speaks class, distinction and upgraded elegance.

The inspiration behind this superb collection we hear is "beauty and simplicity". Not one for unnecessary attachments and appliques that removes from the beauty instead of adding to it.

Every outfit in the collection, speaks of sophistication in its most simplest form, as they are all supremely well tailored and with a good mix of colours in the right place and not vulgar at all.

According to the Creative Director of the "XCLAMATIONS", the choice of "ADUNNI ADE" to carry the brand's essence, is because "Adunni's personality, totally reflects the brand's woman for resort 2018; "Easy, Beautiful with a knack for tradition", hence the attachment of prints on the outfits.

We totally love this collection. It's a ready to wear that's totally on point.

Kudos the mind behind it.

Gorgeous pictures were taken by ace photographer, Emmanuel Oyeleke.

Model as you already know is Adunni Ade.

GORGEOUS TV GAL STEPHANIE COKER PREPARES FOR PARADISE NUPTIAL IN MYKONOS GREECE

Omowunmi Eniafe Coker Aderinokun

Save the date letter

 

Mr & Mrs Olumide Aderinokun

Stephanie and her gorgeous maids-of-honour at the traditional wedding

All things being equal, gorgeous TV gal, Omowunmi Eniafe Coker-Aderinokun, better known to all as Stephanie Coker who had her traditional wedding a few months ago is getting well prepared for a dream destination wedding in Mykonos, Greece.

From all indications, it would be the stuff that dreams are made of, knowing the capabilities of her very liquid husband.

If the very beautiful traditional wedding is anything to judge by, then this paradise destination wedding, would totally mesmerise all comers.

The d-date is Saturday, August 12, 2017 and already a notice or keep the date letter has gone out to those who are likely to grace the occasion, to find out about their attendance or availability.

The speculation had been that it would be a South African wedding, but then maybe because of the many on going issues in that country, it was now changed to maybe a London wedding, but that also didn't work out somewhat as what would be so spectacular about a London wedding, except if like the Alakijas, it's done in a palace. Now the gorgeous couple have agreed that it's now a Mykonos wedding and they want to take their guests to Paradise and back. Even the thought of it alone is super exciting.

Mykonos is one of the show off, glamour Islands of Greece. It is a cross between the party islands of Ibiza and St. Tropez, with a stupendously picturesque view, that leaves mouth agape. Just imagine Ibiza and St. Tropez on steroids, then you'll understand the trip about Mykonos.

Legend has it that Mykonos is one those islands (location) in the Aegean seas, where the father of the gods himself Zeus had many battles with the titans, also where Zeus son, Hercules lured the invincible giants and killed them. It is said that the many rocks around the island are the petrified testicles of the giants.

The destination wedding from all indications is being packaged by Prive Luxury Weddings, owned by Elizabeth Elohor Aisien.

Guests had till last week Saturday, June 17, 2017 to indicate their attendance.

STOP THE RUMOUR! THAT ATIKU ABUBAKAR IS THE SINGLE HIGHEST SHAREHOLDER OANDO

Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, GCON

Is it possible for the former Vice President of Nigeria to own such colossal shares in such a company, oooo yes it is possible. Especially being a private citizen if he has the wherewithal/resources then by law, nothing stops him from acquiring the shares.

So does he own such colossal numbers of shares, whose value would be staggering to say the least? That we cannot readily tell you for sure, but the rumour is rife that he does and the only 2 people that can ascertain that for sure, are the former vice-president​ himself and or OANDO PLC.

But beyond any iota of doubt, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is a man of extraordinary and colossal means. Forget totally that part where his name is not listed in any Forbes rich list or Fortune networth list. In fact how many of the stupendously wealthty or rich Nigerians are listed on that so called list?

THAT EVAN'S MANSION IN GHANA? CAN THIS BE IT?

Ghana property ????
Evans the terror

We don't know if it is a prank or joke of any kind, but we got this picture posted above, with the claim that it is actually one of famed Ghana properties said to be owned by Evans the terror, the billionaire kidnap kingpin. Who became stupendously rich by virtue of his evil atrocities.

You will recall that part of the confessions of the despicable dude- CHUKWUDUBEM Onwuamadike, is that apart from the 2 Lagos properties he supposedly owns said to have cost him ₦200 million, he his said to equally own 2 humongous Ghana properties too, value of which were never ascertained.

Location also in Ghana, of the 2 properties were never given.

But now the picture above has come out and there's the unconfirmed claim it is one of the 2 in Accra, the Ghana capital.

If truly it is, then Evans sure has a super good taste in properties and must surely have a good eye.

Evans the terror, a father of 5, whose despicable reign of terror caused anguished and terrible pain on many, was said to have used his proceeds of crime and evil, to live like a king who never thought his atrocities would find him out somehow in the future. His web spanned Lagos, Edo, Anambra and other parts of the country, leading as many as 7 gangs at a time.

He really lived large, using the famed satellite phone, by name Thuraya as one of his means of communication and there were several other phones and hundreds of pre-registered Sims that he bought only at ₦1500 each. In addition to this phone that can be used in any type of terrain without any form of encumbrances, he also had 2 Vertu top notch phones that is said to have cost him the average of $6000 each.

At 36, this mean dude had already lived a life, and acquired properties that only many other people could only dream and form fantasies about. He had wrist-watches that were valued in their millions.

Only 4 properties, 2 in Lagos and 2 in Ghana were ever spoken of, but there's the likelihood he might even have more.
