How a grandma can look this awesomely gorgeous is just a trip beyond imagination.

The super gorgeous and supremely stylish mother of Layal Tinubu, that's Seyi Tinubu's super pretty wife, by name Nkechi Holm would rival any young lady half her age any day and anytime!

Here in the above picture, she's with her supremely beautiful grandchild from Layal and Seyi, by name Noella Amira Rose Titilayo Tinubu.

Seyi Tinubu needs no introduction whatsoever. He is petrolhead MD/CEO of Loatsad Promomedia and the son of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the National leader of the ruling party the APC, and like he is also referred to as, the Emeritus Governor of the State of Aquatic Excellence, known to all as Lagos State, many also refer to ASIWAJU by a title, Olowo Eko.

Former Celebrity girlfriend of rapper now turned actor, Ikechukwu Onunaku whose singing/rapping career seem to have gone totally, totally comatose in the person of Sarah Ofili, the ex-glamour model and "somewhat shoe designer", at least that's what she once told us she was; took the first major step towards matrimony very recently when she and her handsome, somewhat gentleman of a fiancee had their traditional engagement/traditional wedding in Asaba, Delta State.

The mixed race beauty, was looking as stunning and as stylish as ever in her gorgeous traditional outfit with a big smile on her face, we are sure heaving a major sigh of awesome relief as she stood next to her dude of a husband.

We are too sure that if Sarah would have her way, it's either going to be a major wedding of the season come next year 2018 when the white wedding would take place or it might just be a quiet destination wedding, for the white either in England where she is majorly based or another country or even in Nigeria.

Sarah and her ex-beau Ikechukwu were in a 4 years tempestuous very public relationship, which was majorly emotional draining that the emotionally battered lady at a point had to call time on the thug love relationship.

She thereafter went somewhat incognito in her relationship afterwards, except for whenever she released any of her super sexy and seductive pictures online that she came back into the public's consciousness, but now with this her engagement/traditional wedding she's again in the public view, but for the right vibe.

We are gladly awaiting our invitation to cover her white wedding, whenever the time comes up.

Strip clubs, bars and lounges are not a new occurrence in Nigeria they have been around for quite a bit and they dot every corner of some of the most popular streets around Lagos, be it on the mainland or the island, in Abuja and around the states of Nigeria! In fact our observation is that they seem to have adopted a new ideology which to atleast be on every street that's popular or that counts as much as possible!

They come in many shades, in fact in all shades and by virtue of what they are, they cater to a lot of customers/audiences, both male and female, we have it in good authority that a famous vlogger who loves to wax very spiritual, a Spiro by day and a near wanton by night was an excited customer of a joint like this a while back, and where she was even given an exclusive lapdance.

We know that Lagos, Nigeria is Africa's very own Atlanta or ATL for short, where strip clubs/joints are very famous and it's like a requirement for anyone that claims to be a "certified fun seeker" to have at least visited one or two or experience that world. We also know that Nigeria and Nigerians  don't like to carry  last, so whatever is a popular culture, we always embrace with vigor and most often tries to outplay even the originators.

The types of strip joints comes in their different categories and the categories determine the types of audiences that visits them. The categories also determines the types of girls/ladies that strips their too. There the seedy joints that caters for the normal peeps, just about anyone who wants to come gloat and see local girls strip off their clothes and shaking their naked bazookas live for people to see. This type dots the streets of Allen Avenue and adjacent streets and they are always jam-packed for their customers.

Then there are the very exclusive ones, like the big and massive one in GRA, Ikeja in that very popular road and a few super exclusive ones in the Lekki-Ajah axis and Victoria Island. There's even a new one on Sanusi Fafunwa Street, Victoria Island.

The buzz word, amongst their exclusive clientele is that, they are "clean girls, very exotic ones" at that in display or showcase.

So what's the USP, that's the "unique selling point" of this newest and most exclusive of joints that has gotten everyone buzzing and excited, at Lekki Phase one, not far from Fola Osibo and by name Bayrock? Why has the very new place, which only just opened very recently, a few weeks at that, become a mecca of a sort for fun seekers who loves the wanton display and showcase of naked bodies of women? What is it about the place that has made people, the ones openly and excitingly helping to publicise the bar/joint/lounge? Who are the owners/promoters of this place?

The number one answer mainly about why the place is exciting all comers, is that the girls are like a special breed. Imagine that the buzz word is that the strippers are "International"! What this is meant to convey is that they are "foreigners" like the local peeps would say a mix of "Oyinbo and other exotic kinds! Other adjectives that have been used to describe this ladies are that they are "exotic", "super sexy",  awesomely shaped "out of town" girls! Infact there was a short video someone showed us, of a few of the dancers, doing their stuff and it was epic!

There was a particular lady, dark skinned/chocolate with massive endowments, front-wise and back-wise, shaking with unbelievable dexterity her uncommon bazookas with vigor and deliberate attempt to cause a volcanic eruption of the most awesome kind!

Yinka Afolabi and Bisola Omisade

With the introduction that was done a few days ago, when Yinka Afolabi, the first son of quiet billionaire, Dr. Taiwo Olayinka Afolabi and his fiance's family got introduced officially, we are too sure a big society wedding is upcoming most likely in the first or at nose second quarter of 2018.

Most people don't know that Yinka is the first son and first born of the Executive Vice Chairman/CEO of the Sifax Group, reason for that is because the dude in his early 30s is a quiet guy who works for one of his father's companies, he also owns the Grill outlet located on Alexander road, Ikoyi, inside the expansive compound where the younger sister, Mariam Abiola Afolabi, who is the well known award winning young designer who owns the fashion brand that used to be known as Mademoiselle Aglais which has since being repackaged and is now known as the Mazelle brand. Yinka is also the elder brother of LAX, another more well known son of the kind billionaire, who is very well known for his philanthropic activities, which are on a legendary scale. LAX is a very popular musician who rode on wave and neck of the Star Boy himself, Wizkid to rise to stardom at the beginning of his music career.

The wedding Introduction between Yinka Afolabi and his heartthrob, Bisola Omisade was a family only affair, with only a few close friends of the families on both sides in attendance.

We are eagerly awaiting the 2nd part- traditional wedding and engagement ceremony and 3rd part- the white wedding, sometime in the new year-round that's 2018!

Knowing Dr. Afolabi who has supported very many others before very well, the Executive Director of SAHCOL one of the subsidiaries under the Sifax Group, would spare no expense to make sure his son's wedding is one of the top weddings of 2018.

Congratulations to the new couple.

Toyin Abraham & Omoni Oboli

Mr & Dr.Mrs Tony Elumelu & Omoni Oboli

Despite the stress occasioned due to the petrol scarcity issue, the stars and celebrities defied all odds to attend the premiere of the sequel to the "Wives on Strike" film produced by one of the biggest names in the industry, in the person of the gorgeous "Omoni Oboli".

This new installment is titled "Wives on Strike revolution", and the message it tries to pass across is focused on the ills of domestic violence, though the film is comedic in nature, it still had a social message it wanted to pass across. The first installment which had been very well received, was focused on the ills of "child marriage" and it was very well received too, which might have been the reason for this sequel.

Wives on strike revolution has a hilarious comedic slant that would appeal to all and sundry, whilst passing the message across so easily also too. It stars such wonderful thespians like the irrepressible Sola Sobowale, the very versatile Ufuoma McDermott, the hilarious Odunlade Kolade, the comedic genius Julius 'the genius' Agwu, Kenneth Okonkwo, Chioma Akpotha, Elvina Ibru, Toyin Abraham, Uche Jumbo Rodriguez, the ever funny Chigul, Saka and Omoni Oboli herself.

The roll call of those that attended the premiere was staggering, it was led by the Minister for Information, Tourism & Culture himself, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, billionaire chairman of UBA and chairman of Heirs Holdings Tony Elumelu and wife, Executive Director at Sahara Energy Tonye Cole, Biola Alabi, Ali Baba and Mary Akpobome, Moyo Lawal, Susan Peters, founder and MD of Ebony Life TV Mo Abudu, the super talented OC Ukeje and very many others.

The film was so good according to those that attended, that at the end it got a standing ovation.

Kudos to Omoni Oboli, casts and crew for a good job well done. Maybe this is the movie that would give "The Wedding Party 2 Destination Dubai" a major run for its money.

When Lawrence gifted his new wife-Neya, A brand spanking new RANGE ROVER 2018.

Their big wedding was only on Thursday, December 21, 2017. First with the solemnisation at the famous, Catholic Church of the Assumption Falomo Ikoyi Lagos, where some of the biggest names in Lagos worships, then to the Oriental Hotel Victoria Island Lagos, where the big time reception took place and which had in attendance some of the biggest names in Nigeria from all walks of life. Friends, associates of the father of the bride, the former Abia State Governor and top businessman Sir Orji Uzor Kalu, friends of the groom/husband and super gorgeous friends of the beautiful bride/wife.

The new husband-Lawrence maybe in the bid to show that he is not  by any means a pushover, gifted his "blushing bride now wife", who already is very used to extraordinary trappings of wealth, at their reception at the Oriental Hotel, "a brand spanking new, Black Range Rover SUV 2018 edition", with a brown interior as his wedding gift to her. 

Lawrence Iyere, the handsome groom is a native of Irrua in Edo State, and the University of Buckingham graduate is said to have an impressive interest in the oil and gas, real estate and trading sector too. So we are sure he would be one very liquid dude to be marrying Orji Uzor Kalu's first daughter and this union would only add to what's already well made.

The handsome Lawrence and his now wife are said to have met a while back in school in the UK, by that we mean at the University of Buckingham London, where the relationship began which now culminated into a fairy tale wedding ceremony and into celebrated marriage now.

The besotted dad, who is the publisher of both The Sun and Telegraph newspapers amongst several other profitable investments, we are too sure wouldn't have left his favourite child in limbo by any means too.

We are already eagerly awaiting the hearing of the pitter-patter of tiny feet very very soon too.

Orji, Pastor Chris and Gani Adams

ASIWAJU & Ibori with others

It was undoubtedly a very busy day for socialites yesterday, as they had to divide their times very well to attend all the A-class events that held yesterday, Thursday, December 20, 2017.

2 of the biggest events were weddings of the daughters of 2 very wealthy and powerful men, one was the former Governor of Abia State, in the person of Sir Orji Uzor Kalu of the Slok Conglomerate and the other personage is none other than the Chairman of MultiChoice Africa and a director of Heritage Bank, Chief Dewunmi Ogunsanya, whose daughter also had her own white wedding too and reception yesterday at Harbour Point, Victoria Island Lagos.

So yesterday, Thursday, December 20, 2017 was the D-day and the convergence point was the expansive hall of the Eko Hotel and suites, Ademola Adetokunbo Street, Victoria Island Lagos. The event was the 60th anniversary edition of the longest running beauty pageant in Nigeria, known to the world as Miss Nigeria.

This was the 2017 edition, organised as expected by Daily Times Newspapers owned by Fidelis Anosike's Folio Communications. The historic event was sponsored by the likes of GAC Motors, Wazobia FM who aired the proceedings live, Heritage Bank who were prominently involved, Lasena Waters, Yudala, NAPTIP, Cinitron, Studio 24, FIRS & others.

The red carpet was billed to have started at 5pm and the show itself at 8pm. As expected the timing was totally off, as none gave those times any importance whatsoever. Just imagine that as at 9:30pm many were just still trickling in, Fidelis Anosike chairman of Folio Communications was so incensed by this, that he openly spoke about it later when he had the opportunity.

The judges to pick the new queen were many, it had the likes of Chioma Ude, Ex-queens Helen Prest-Ajayi 1979, Binta Sukai 1990,  delectable Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, architect extraordinaire Jumoke Adenowo, designer of note Odion Oseni, DG of NAPTIP-Julie Okah-Donli, Future Awards & Red Media's own Debola Williams, Noble Igwe of Style Vitae & 360 Nobs, The Wedding Party 2's Enyinna Nwigwe and a few others on the seats to do the job.

Guests were aplenty, Heritage Bank one of the major sponsors was very well represented by many of their directors likes of Jude Monye, the acting MD, Adaeze Udensi an ED & even their Chairman.

Former Governors Aremo Olusegun Osoba of Ogun State and James Onanefe Ibori of Delta State attended, devoid of every paraphernalia of office that they used to enjoy. James Onanefe Ibori attended with his gorgeous wife and they both actually came on time at 8pm, they actually came from Orji Uzor Kali's Daughter's white wedding. So accessible was Ibori, that we actually walked up to him and shook his hands when he was going out to bring a guest in all alone. Others that we saw were the likes of NFF Chairman Amaju Pinnick, billionaire businessman Musa Danjuma, Erelu Kuti, Erelu Abiola Dosunmu who was also a judge

Also seen were the likes of Terry Wayas, Linda Ikeji, Freda Francis, a very pregnant and sumptuously shaped Akunna Nwala of Kuku's hair, former MD of the now defunct Bond Bank, John Darlington, the in your face Hilda Dokubo who was in all black and showed off her assets with aplomb, Prisca Ndu, Destiny Amaka who has lost a massive amount of weight one is first shocked on seeing her, Chike Chikeluba, Linus Idahosa, former best model of the world, Bunmi Ademokoya, Joan Okorodudu and many others.

The entertainment was provided by Mayorkun who performed admirably well, performing 3 of his hits to the delight of all.  Nigeria's king of pop 2baba totally raised the roof with his performance, dude really knows how to get to the people/crowd/fans. The crown prince, of off the cuff mad hilarious jokes Bovi was in his element (as he effortlessly cracked people's bones that they laughed and laughed), he also was one of the days hosts too, the other being the handsome Ebuka Obi Uchendu who was partnered again with Lala Akindoju! This pair are really in demand this season and must be raking in loads of dough for it. Bovi was mostly partnered with Olive, who changed a couple of times during the course of the event, into some beautifully sexy outfits that must have gotten some eyes popping!

10 things you don’t know about Benedict Peters of Aiteo


Founder and Executive Vice Chairman of integrated energy company, Aiteo Group, Benedict Peters, clocked 51 on Tuesday, December 5, 2017. And in the past two weeks, the elusive billionaire who has changed the face of Nigerian football and is taking us to the World Cup in Russia, has received 3 big awards from New Telegraph, BusinessDay and Leadership.

A consummate businessman with an unassuming personality, there is a lot about the gentleman fondly called Benny that many do not know about.

Here are 10 of them

1. Born in Abakaliki
Although of Delta State origin, Benedict Peters was born in Abakaliki, the capital of present-day Ebonyi State on December 5, 1966 to a middle class family. He and five other siblings were raised by their banker father and a homemaker mother. Formal education began at Ekulu Primary School, Enugu, from which he proceeded to Federal Government College, also in Enugu.

2. Graduate of UNIBEN
He graduated from the University of Benin (UNIBEN) with a B.Sc. degree in Geography and Urban Planning in 1989 at the age of 22. His father retired from banking while he was at the university, prompting the young Peters to develop entrepreneurial skills ahead of many of his contemporaries.

3. Tomato and cocoa trader
After graduation, an enterprising Peters became a cross-country merchant with interests in agricultural produce. He started with large-scale trading of tomatoes from northern Nigeria to the south and trading in cocoa for local consumption and export. Sale of new and used cars, vehicle spare parts and real estate were some of his other early business interests.

4. From banking to Ocean and Oil
The seed of what would later become a flourishing career in oil and gas was sown at Union Bank where Peters did his mandatory one-year National Youth Service. A job offer by the bank was politely turned down for a chance to build a fortune from his relationship with Wale Tinubu, Jite Okoloko and Mofe Boyo of Ocean and Oil.

5. Managing Director of MRS
Convinced of Peters’ competence and far-reaching influence, Alhaji Sayyu Dantata head-hunted him to join MRS Oil Nigeria Plc as Group Executive Director in 1994, followed by promotion to the position of Managing Director. In no time, the company became a prime player in the downstream sector of the oil and gas industry. Peters wrote his name into MRS folklore in five short but eventful years.

Tonto Dikeh

Rosy Meurer

Tonto & former husband-Olakunle Churchill

These 2 are both actresses in Nollywood and the common denominator between both of them is the handsome, light-skinned Olakunle Churchill, who was the former husband of Tonto Dikeh at least till December of 2016 before things went kaput, who is still fighting a bitter battle with the estranged mother of his son, Tonto.

Rosy Meurer on the other hand is supposedly the other woman, the stupendously beautiful and gorgeous lady who Tonto has consistently accused of destroying her marriage to Kunle! But Rosy has consistently and vehemently denied having any amorous relationship with Kunle.

Both are forever at daggers drawn and it would take for God to personally intervene for both to sheathe their drawn weapons which both are seemingly ready to use at any point in time. One only hopes that all hell wouldn't be let loose one day when both would meet in the same space!

What's their new bone of contention all over again? What has stirred the drama again, after some form of quietude and backpedaling? Rosy is seemingly forever, either blatantly or subtly digging at Tonto and the digging always somehow seem to get at Tonto! Who seemingly cannot ever take it quietly.

In the aftermath of Tonto's new big reveal where Mama King, that's Tonto revealed about the airing of her new in your face reality show, where she spoke about not being comfortable with or to put like she's said to have proclaimed it, she was tired of her old body parts, so she had had to engage in cosmetic surgery on her stomach and boobs, making sure to get both back in shape. And all of what went down (surgery) are to be aired on TV! And so the promo of the show is out!

Rosy has gone to town to shade Tonto, for not being consistent and constant, especially insinuating at her not being real and having 2 mouths.

Hear her- “How can you preach love yourself and be ashamed of yourself? I’ve always warned ..Instagram life is another life entirely o!Don’t copy or listen to what you don’t know. The struggle is real,”

Hmmmmmmm! So would Tonto let sleeping dogs lie? Or we to expect the mother of all Intercontinental ballistic missile, very well targeted to hit where it hurts?

Let's wait and see! Rosy though has been accused by some for doing all that's in her power to look like Tonto, has she succeeded in being like her? That's another story, for another day!
