DEJI TINUBU SET FOR BURIAL ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 30, 2018

Late Ayodeji Tinubu

The body of the late Special Adviser to the Governor of Lagos State on Commerce, Industry and Cooperatives, Deji Tinubu would be committed to mother earth come this Tuesday, January 30, 2018 at the Vaults and Gardens, Ikoyi, Lagos.

The family of the beloved deceased, who slumped and gave up the ghost only last have released a funeral programme for next week.

According to the programme, a service of song is slated for Monday, January 29, 2018 at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, City of David Parish, Oniru, Victoria Island, Lagos at the time is 5pm. Lying-in-State is set for the same church venue on Tuesday, January 30, 2018 by 9.30am, thereafter at 10am a funeral service would be conducted to bid farewell to the gentleman par excellence and afterwards the internment at the Vaults and Gardens Ikoyi would take place.

Deji Tinubu had slumped and given up the ghost on the football pitch only on January 25, 2018 while playing a 5-a side football match at the retreat organised by the Lagos State Government at the Jubilee Chalets, Epe, Lagos State. Football was one sport the former sports administrator and enthusiast enjoyed a whole lot.

He was immediately attended to by the retinue of nurses and doctors on standby after he slumped who applied First aod and then was immediately transferred to the General Hospital, Epe, where he was confirmed dead on arrival. Though nothing has been said about the cause of his untimely death, it is suspected that it was complications from something heart related, maybe "cardiac arrest".

The perfect gentleman, who is very soft spoken is a elder sibling of the GMD/GCEO of Oando Ltd, Jibril Adewale Tinubu and a nephew of the former Governor of Lagos State, the Jagaban of Borgu, ASIWAJU Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The late Ayodeji Tinubu, born July 31, 1964 was one of the sons of the late top dog Policeman, Kafaru Tinubu and his wife, Alhaja Bintu Fatima Tinubu. Before his recent change of portfolio, he was the Special Adviser on Sports to the Governor of Lagos State, while he doubles as the Chairman of the the LSSC, a position he held for 4 years. He was the MD/CEO of Sports Vision Nigeria, a company he ran with his bosom buddy, Deji Omotoyinbo. He is survived by his wife, Yemisi and his 2 kids.

He would be sorely missed by all. May his gentle soul find rest.

WHY ISTANBUL TURKEY IS THE NEW GO TO PLACE FOR THE WIRE-WIRE BOYS & THEIR BUSINESS!


If you haven't been to Istanbul, Turkey before, we plead with you to just go and have a funtastically great time! There's just that thing about this beautiful place, it's one beautiful place, that we love going and going and going to.

Are you just going on holiday? Or are you a trader/business person looking to buy things or manufacture or produce? Istanbul is just the place! After China, it's the other very hotspot for those into manufacturing/production  especially clothes et al.

The fact that it is the very middle point between Asia and Europe, adds to the extraordinary flavour. So just in one same place in one country, the 2 very distinct flavours are just very prominent. Just cross over that very massive, iconic bridge atop the "Bosphorus" and the European and Asian flavours are distinct for you to see. For those who might not know, Istanbul is where the 2 great Turkish football clubs with extraordinary and cult like fanbases- Fenerbahce and Galatasaray are domiciled.

And to make things a lot easy for those who want to visit, as long as you have either of the three major visas- be it American visa, UK Visa or Schengen visa, all of these visas allows you in, as long as you would fly in via the award winning home airline "Turkish Airlines".

Away from the holiday spot story, one of the major things bringing Istanbul Turkey to major attention right now, is not because it's an extraordinarily exotic idyllic holiday spot or because it's a fantastic production/manufacturing hub, but it's because it's gradually becoming and is the newest spot and go to area now for those "wire-wire boys".

For those who don't know what wire-wire is, if you are into music a lot, you would have heard about "wire-wire" at least in a part of the lyrics of a song by the awesome & award winning Davido. It was also same that 9ice codedly sang about in one of his current hit, when he spoke about how his boys work and work having sleepless nights.

"Wire-wire" is a very sophisticated and advanced form of online fraud, the practitioners have developed such dexterity at it that, they seem to be making badass killings from it, making unbelievable amount of money. Part of their mode of operation is using some advanced applications to penetrate banks and companies and big corporation accounts and then they transfer funds from such accounts to some accounts from where they can later withdraw without any issues whatsoever.

According to our findings, what makes this new spot attractive is that, Istanbul is somewhat lenient towards the value of money that one can withdraw at a go. It is said that as much as $50000 withdrawal might not be an issue at all at one go. There are some dudes already making the place a home, especially since it's still like a virgin spot that hasn't become as over populated as Malaysia already.

In fact, there's a Gbenga dude who seem to have become the lord of the manor in Istanbul already with his pals. Dude was home recently, during the holidays, showing off and spending money like a drunken sailor, in fact legend has it that he even opened 2 humongous edifices as recent as very late last year. Gbenga was at an actress birthday at Lekki in December of 2017, where we heard he spent some good millions.

According to the gist, he is in fact the "new heartthrob" of the mother of 2, who plays strong in a particular genre of Nollywood and owns a food joint too.


WHEN THE GREAT LETTER BOMBER HIMSELF-CHIEF DR OLUSEGUN OBASANJO WAS MERCILESSLY BOMB OUT BY HIS OWN DAUGHTER-DR IYABO OBASANJO


Dr Iyabo Obasanjo

Dr Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo, PhD, GCFR

It is very obvious that the Obasanjo family are very blessed in the art of writing letters (letter writing) and not just ordinary letters at that, but bombs of immense awesomeness akin to nuclear bombs, in the case of the one below written a few years back by a daughter to her father, whom she loves very dearly & deeply, but that has hurt her terribly & continually, this was an ICBM of awesome capacity and capabilities.

It, the open letter attempts to open the readers (public), who might have been gobsmarkingly by the antics of the other to the true antics of a well coached, very dexterous actor, here being her own blood dad.

It seeks to expose someone who suffers from a false messianic but truly Napoleonic tendency.

If a daughter can say this much about her own dad, then much should be desired from such a father.

Open Letter to Olusegun Obasanjo

By Iyabo Obasanjo, DVM, PhD

It brings me no joy to have to write this but since you started this trend of open letters I thought I would follow suit since you don’t listen to anyone anyway. The only way to reach you may be to make the public aware of some things. As a child well brought up by my long-suffering mother in Yoruba tradition, I have been reluctant to tell the truth about you but as it seems you still continue to delude yourself about the kind of person you are and I think for posterity’s sake it is time to set the records straight. I will return to the issue of my long-suffering mother later in this letter.

Like most Nigerians, I believe there are very enormous issues currently plaguing the country but I was surely surprised that you will be the one to publish such a treatise. I remember clearly as if it was yesterday the day I came over to Abuja from Abeokuta when I was Commissioner of Health in Ogun State, specifically to ask you not to continue to pursue the third term issue.

I had tried to bring it up when your sycophantic aides were present and they brushed my comments aside and as usual you listened to their self-serving counsel. For you to accuse someone else of what you so obviously practiced yourself tells of your narcissistic megalomaniac personality. Everyone around for even a few minutes knows that the only thing you respond to is praise and worship of you. People have learnt how to manipulate you by giving you what you crave. The only ones that can’t and will not stroke your ego are family members who you universally treat like shit (sic) apart from the few who have learned to manipulate you like others.

CAN THE POLICE TOUCH THIS VIRTUAL UNTOUCHABLE? THATS TALKING ABOUT OTUNBA DR MIKE ADENUGA

Otunba Dr. Mike Adenuga Jr

On the Forbes magazine list of Africa's wealthiest, a list many have come to count as an official stamp, Otunba Dr. Mike Agbolade Adeniyi Ishola Adenuga Jr. is rated as the 2nd officially most liquid Nigerian and by extension top 7 richest African too, with a networth of about $5.5 billion dollars. The man variously referred to by many tags, chief of which is "the Bull", for his never say die attitude and extraordinary strength of purpose has retained these 2 positions in Nigeria and Africa for many years, and he is sure never to go down at all.

His awesome resume is the type that gives hope to people who are not scared to work hard. Just imagine a man, who while in America drove taxis and from what he earned began to trade and from that humble beginnings, has grown to who he is now, a billionaire many times over!
Apart from owning the 2nd national carrier, Glo, his investment portfolios in real estate, oil and gas, finance etc are staggering to say the list.

But even with all his wealth/resources, connections around the world and wherewithal this particular season seem to be a trying one for him. According to unsubstantiated reports he is reported to be indebted in tune of some staggering amount. Like a late former billionaire was quoted to have said years back, "the bigger the head, the bigger the hat that would fit that head too", so someone of Adenuga's wealth and Caliber is expected to have huge debts, it's expected in business!

The very first sign of seeming unease was when his Glo licence in Benin Republic, our neighbouring country where the brand had grown to a sizeable chunk with over a million subscribers was not renewed so the brand was sent packing out of that country. The report claimed that they were sent packing because of their inability to pay the requirements to renew the licence! For someone who had built the sort of reputation that money is not an issue, when it comes to lucrativebusiness/investment opportunities many were shocked! But however any one sees it, it's not just a loss for Glo in Benin republic, but also a major loss for that country too!

YET MORE ON THAT 1ST CLASS & HUMONGOUS LEFE CEREMONY IN KANO!!!

Fatima Abdullahi Umar Ganduje

Mrs. Florence AJIMOBI, 1st lady Oyo

Dr. Hafsat Abdullahi Umar Ganduje 1st lady Kano





Just imagine that the "Lefe ceremony" is already this top notch, this upscale, how then would the traditional wedding, and the Nikkai itself then be?

We and other news medium had said the gifts that exchanged hands came in "27 Louis Vuitton monogram bags/cases", if they were that "lifestyle" about the containers then just imagine the jewelry collection- diamonds and other precious stones, laid on gold or platinum or other ornamental metals and many other first class gifts that would have exchanged hands!

People shouldn't over think things in any way or manner about the gifts or value of them, the Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola AJIMOBI, long before he became the 2 term executive Governor of his beloved state, was already a well made, very liquid man, who had risen to the top of his vocation long before he joined politics.

Back to the Lefe, in attendance were at least about 10 first ladies, who had come along to support 2 of their own, in the persons of Mrs. Florence AJIMOBI, the wife and 1st lady of the Governor of Oyo State and Dr. Hafsat Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, wife and 1st lady of the Governor of Kano State.

From the little we could gather, at least about 3 private jets flew in into Kano for the little ceremony, which also had 2 former Governors in attendance to give support.

Apart from the ceremony, the Oyo State entourage also went to pay homage to his royal majesty, the Emir of Kano Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi II, who is like the father of the gorgeous bride, acting on behalf of the actual dad, the Governor.

We are eagerly looking forward to this upcoming spring wedding, as we believe it would be L.I.T!

OUR FRIDAY DELICIOUS BANGER IS NONE OTHER THAN THE YOUNG, SEXY & STYLISH..... MOCHEDDAH







Though we haven't seen the singer/entertainer for a bit now, we are happy to know that she's still at least representing and doing it very well on the style stake.

A few years back, the talented young lady was one of the top 10 best female musicians in the country and so much was expected, only for her to just go very quiet and off radar.

Now when we see the delightsome darling, she's always looking smashing and stylish and repping well with her nice stature and wearing great styles too with Oomph and much aplomb. There's just something so effortlessly chic about her style that's so good to the eyes!

She's our "Friday delicious style banger", check out her beautiful pictures.

True friends and by extension true and enduring friendship are hard to find, so when you have one you do all your best to keep it and continually nurture it. Seems like that's the type of friendship/relationship between erstwhile lovers and now true/good friends Omosede Igbinedion Akenzua and the new President of Liberia, in the person of George Tawlon Manneh Opong Weah, who just got sworn in as the President of Liberia only a few days back.

Omosede as a true friend should do, which is to celebrate with your friends, when such occasions abound and suffer with them also, when such occasions also arises took many of her friends along to Monrovia for the inauguration of newest President in Africa, she had in tow the likes Helen Inegbeniki, Joy Chico-Ejiro, Precious Fafure and few others at that West African country that the former world renowned, award winning footballer hopes to totally help repackage and place back on a sound footing before his tenure ends in years to come.

All parties and no other fun, makes Omosede and friends a dull girls, so it wasn't only about attending the swearing in alone, it was also a time to relax by visiting the beach too.

To show how close the gorgeous daughter of the Esama of Benin and the new President are, you can even feel the love between his son and Omosede as they took a beautiful picture together.

The larger Tinubu family of Lagos have sadly lost another of their sons, this time around, it is renowned sports enthusiast and the Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor/Government on Commerce and Industries, in the person of sports loving gentleman, Deji Tinubu.

The untimely and very sad occurance happened yesterday at the Lagos State retreat in Epe Lagos organised by the state Government, where the state government officials have all converged to strategise.

YORU-NOLLY IYABO OJO AND FORMER BFF TEARS EACH OTHER APART OVER MAN OR WHAT?



Later when some of these people are tagged or described as ratchets, they and their fans would start feeling bad, thinking they are being unjustly lampooned! But they would have forgotten that their sometimes very ratchet behaviours or actions is the culprit.

Imagine that both combatants in this mortal combat are supposed public personalities or public figures, in other words celebs. One is the renowned Yoruba Nollywood actress who just clocked 40 very recently and had a major celebration to mark it, and that's none other than "Mama Alamala" Iyabo Ojo. On the other side as her combatant, said to be an entrepreneur par excellence. is Madam Lara owner of Larritt's shoe village in Ikeja, who used to be Iyabo's "best friend forever" before now, but who has now somewhat become her mortal enemy, hence the mortal combat, no holds barred competition!

What is the genesis of their issues, problems with each other, no one can particularly say, but people are coming up with many congestions of all types! And all of the congestions beggars belief in all entirety!

According to the gist, both ladies were best friends forever, each were each other's confidante revealing things all others don't know to each other. So close were they said to have been that each sleeps at each other's home, eat from the same plate, "wear and co' and supported each other over and above all others before, before things suddenly went south and both would now do whatever it takes to take each other down to the gutters. Just imagine that at the 40th birthday party/event of Iyabo Ojo, Lara was not seen at all. Also at the 50th birthday celebration of Wasiu Alabi Ajibola Odetola PASUMA, though both attended, but they were in opposing camps, with sparks literally flying between the 2 camps, both not ready to back down at all for each other.

What is/are the issue (s)? Or what was the issue? According to the gist, it all boils down to betrayal of the most unbelievable kind! And things are somewhat pointed at PASUMA! How?

The gist has it that Lara, the very passionate and hardworking entrepreneur has been Pasuma's known heartthrob now for upwards of a decade (10 years). That the musician and Lara have been known lovers by all is said to be a common knowledge. Lara supposedly doesn't for any reason joke with this her well well nurtured relationship of many years and would treat anyone's fuvk up, who dares to overstep their boundaries when it comes to it.

Iyabo Ojo is said to have been very very close and cosy and friendly with Alhaji Pasuma's buddy Santana before, which in itself was no problem. But somehow, somewhat, Iyabo's friendship with PASUMA was thought to have moved from just a friendship to a much more 'closer' relationship. All the while Lara is still Pasuma's lover and still a close friend of Iyabo!

Knowledge of what supposedly must have gone down behind her back is supposedly now the issue of betrayal between two erstwhile best buddies. Lara is particularly pained from our findings because she's said to be an extremely loyal friend to her close circle of friends. According to the gist, Lara is the sort that she enters into and fights her friends battle for them, though it doesn't necessarily concern her. She is seen and acknowledged as the epitome of loyalty, so she expects same from her friends too. So when the same virtue/trait she gives and shows is not reciprocated or betrayed it gets deep with her.

Now that the issue(s) has/have become public, would both combatants sheath their swords and find an amicable settlement? That we don't know. Or would elders come between them to help sort out matters? That's still to be seen. For now we all just hope that both combatants can learn to keep their private matters private and stop washing each others linen in public! 

NEAR KIDNAP ESCAPE IN TAXIFY BY NOLLYWOOD'S OWN SHOLA FAPSON


Dorcas Shola Fapson



When Uber, Taxify, Oga Taxi and co came on board, it was sheer relief for everyone world over, especially in Nigeria, where the Yellow taxies had held sway for so many years and had developed themselves into lords of the manor, who couldn't be questioned. Those taxi cab people can be so rude, like they were doing you a favour!

Normally it is supposed to be a buyers market, where the customer (rider) is supposed to be king, but the way the old yellow taxis ran, they called the shot and woe betide you that you don't agree or you 'll just be stranded till you find a way out. So when the 3 major brands above-first was "Uber", next was "Taxify" and then "Oga Taxi" came on board and with others still coming, it was a major sigh of unprecedented relief, especially with what they all offered-neatness, convenience, technology, ease, safety, security and whatever else, especially the right sequence, which was to return back the power to the buyer/consumer. He/she that pays the Piper actually now dictates the tune in the real sense of it.

But now, two of those things that sells the service being offered, are being called to question and that in particular are.......... SAFETY & Security!

How does one guard against being kidnapped in a Taxify, Uber or Oga Taxi? How can one deter the thoughts of rape and robbery?

Just imagine that the young (27 year old), creatively blessed and beautiful Nollywood actress & model, Dorcas Shola FAPSON, who is the Ndani TV "The Juice" host, and also of the Queen's Fiction fame and also of the Shuga series fame, by the grace of God, actually just escaped from being kidnapped and probably raped by a Taxify driver whose picture is above, who had first driven her to a wrong address (random house) and had unsuccessful tried to drag her out of the his car into the house! 

Hear her-

"THIS TAXIFY JUST FUVKING TRIED TO KIDNAP ME!!!

Thank God I alwayssss have my Pepper spray!! Emptied that shit in his eyes!!! Like wtf?!

He fully locked me in hiscar & drove me to a random house then tried to drag me into it!!!!!!!

I am home now guys, I'm fine. But I was fuvking shaking!"

Thank God for lucky escape oooooo!
What could have happened if she wasn't smart, alert and didn't have the pepper spray in her bag?
How many have already gone through such an ordeal already before and couldn't talk for fear of being stigmatised? Or even never seen again? How many have been raped or killed just like that?

How do we guarantee more security?

AJIMOBI WEDS GANDUJE GRADUALLY GETTING NEARER! IT WOULD BE HUMONGOUS BY ALL STANDARDS!






Emir of Kano Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi II
Abisola Kola Daisi & Fati Ganduje


If the events preceding the main thing, that is the main event is anything to go by, this upcoming solemnization of holy matrimony, between the first and only son of the Executive Governor of Oyo State, Abolaji Idris AJIMOBI and one of the sumptuously beautiful daughters of the Executive Governor of Kano State, Fatima Ganduje is anything to go by, then the main deal is going to be super awesome by all standards.

Just imagine how the very recent event, which is "the Lefe", an Hausa custom and tradition where the groom's family presents beautiful and awesome gifts of all kinds, be it veils of all types and colours, laces of all types, textures and colours, wrappers of all imaginable types, jewelries like diamonds, rubies, amethyst, sapphires, gold, silver, platinum, perfumes, cosmetics, shampoos, conditioners etc to the bride. The groom's family would normally provide what they can afford as presents to the bride, and it would be all those things that she uses or can use.

The caliber of the gifts are usually determined by the wherewithal of the groom's family, so the richer they are the more valuable the kinds of gifts they would present.

The gifts presented by the Ajimobis were one of a kind from all indications, though we didn't know what the content of the "27 LV (Louis Vuitton monogram travel bags" were, by virtue of the value of those bags alone, what they must contain must be out of here by all standards, especially also considering who the family of the bride are- the Gandujes. The Ajimobis would have gone the extra mile to present their only son in the best way possible.

One of the things these gifts says about the groom and his family, is to let the bride and her family know that the groom is capable of taking care and fending for his bride.

How it normally goes is that, the gifts would be accompanied by the aunties, the sisters, the friends of the mom, the dad's sisters of the groom and even some of the friends of the family. Normally the mother might not need to necessarily go along, but in this case she did. Maybe because she's a first lady and also because of the caliber of those accompanying them also.

In all it was a very colourful event, as the ladies were all looking super gorgeous in their lace and high grade Ankara outfits. It was a gorgeous display of culture and tradition too, as the groom's family were accompanied by the traditional dancers from Oyo, whilst they were also welcomed by the troops from Kano.

The groom's family were received by His Excellency, the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi II, whose humongous library is on display in some of the pictures. The eldest child and daughter of Senator Abiola AJIMOBI, in the person of very stylish and beautiful "Abisola Kola Daisi", accompanied her mom and other family members to the culturally stimulating event, that was rich in traditions of the North. Some other top guests that were at the occasion were 2 former Governors, Niyi Adebayo of Ekiti and Christopher Adebayo Alao-Akala of Oyo.

Both Fatima and Idris have been an item for a bit, before both let it known not too long ago. Their introduction was done on November of 2017, while their upcoming wedding should be a spring 2018 humongous wedding with many speculating a date in March of 2018 at most for a stupendous Wedding in Kano or Abuja. #faab2018 loading!!!

NDUKA OBAIGBENA RESURRECTS AFRICA'S BIGGEST FASHION PLATFORM- ARISE FASHION WEEK!


Prince Nduka OBAIGBENA

The countdown has begun and the excitement is palpable and just too awesome to describe. The man behind it all Prince NDUKA OBAIGBENA, is not called the Duke for jokes or comedy!

The gap he had left for pretenders, they had found too massive to fill up. His fashion franchise known to the world as "Arise Fashion Week" was so massive then, bringing together some of the biggest brands and fashion people from Africa and around the world, it immediately went on the fashion map as one of the top fashion weeks to go to in Africa.

The Arise Fashion Week, while it lasted placed Nigeria on the map and it was a brilliant PR for the country and it pushed all the brands and individuals involved to the stratosphere, everyone had to improve their game then, just because to feature, you needed to be up to it.

One of the things it also did was to promote the best of Nigeria and African brands on the international platforms also, as Arise did go around some major parts of the world like Joburg, South Africa, New York, USA & London, UK spreading the gospel.

Now the brand had thought had gone moribund, has been revived again or better still resurrected and we are believing, it would be bigger and better by all standards.

Come March 2018, the exact dates we do not know yet, from the little information at our disposal "Arise Fashion Week 2018 should hold and we are all eagerly awaiting it, holding our breath, knowing that the This Day boss/Publisher always always delivers a slamdunk when it comes to any event he packages.

Another unconfirmed information has it that discussions are already on going in New York, where the "Arise team" have converged and the other part of the gist has it that discussions might also have gone on or might be going on with one of the most iconic models ever in the fashion world, the one and only "Naomi Campbell". What Naomi's role would be, we do not know yet as information for now is still very sketchy.

So if all goes according to plan, Lagos in 2018 will play host to at least 4 top fashion shows, 1st would be the "Arise Fashion Week 2018", next should be "Africa Fashion Week Nigeria 2018" between May & June 2018, next would be the "Heineken Lagos Fashion Week 2018" around October and then to crown it all, would be the "GTBank Fashion Weekend 2018" around November/December 2018.

With the resurgence of the "Arise Fashion Week franchise", maybe the other top fashion platform which we hope that would come back with a massive bang too, would be "Music Meets Runway" brand, which was a very unique concept combining fashion and music/entertainment.

Kudos to the Prince for this great wake up!

WHEN MUIBAT OLADUNJOYE & OYEKANMI ELEGUSHI UNITED IN GORGEOUS NIKKAI!!!!

Muibat Eniola Elegushi nee Oladunjoye

Wedding outfit




The traditional wedding and engagement the Saturday before, that's January 13, 2018 at the Harbour Point Event Centre, was off the hook, in all ramifications. It was obvious that no expense was spared to deliver a 1st class, 7-stars rated event. Everyone that was at the occasion testified to the whole thing being litt!!! K1 the ultimate, was the luxurious icing on the sumptuous red velvet occasion, as he was at his imperious best to the delight of his old and new fans. He certainly won new concerts in extraordinary numbers with his performance.

The part 2, which was the NIKKAI, the Muslim white wedding and the reception that followed thereafter, was a double or better still a triple or quadruple of all the fun and first class package, that part 1 was, in all ramifications.

The venue for the part 2 was the Landmark Event Centre, which after Eko Hotel convention centre, seem to have become the top choice for those who can or could afford it. It's a more better choice, though not as prestigious because unlike Eko Hotel with all their restrictions and prohibitive costs, Landmark has no unneccesary restrictions, it's more affordable and can become whatever anyone wants to turn it into.

On the bandstand at the reception was none other than the exceptional ShugaBand, led by the band leader the irrepressibly talented Akin Tofomowo. This band's number 1 strength and marketing power, is their ability to combine all genre of music into one continuous flow of outstanding excellence and as expected they gave a sumptuous account of themselves.

The supremely gorgeous natural beauty of a bride, now wife was as outstandingly gorgeous as she was at the traditional wedding and engagement, the week before. The daughter of the current Lagos State Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Hon. Saidat Olayinka Oladunjoye and her husband Chief Abdulazeez Abimbola Oladunjoye, a top lawyer was the cynosure of all glaring eyes, who looked on admirably in awe.

Her husband Prince Oyekanmi Elegushi, like you all already know is the younger sibling of the very impressive Royal Father, Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi Kusenla III, the Elegushi of Ikateland and environs, who is one of the youngest monarchs in Nigeria and a super rich and stylish one at that. His custom made Rolls Royce Gushi is one of its type in Africa.

By all standards #enioye2018 was da bomb!!!

WHERE IS THE GREAT JIDE OMOKORE?

Otunba Jide Omokore
The man affectionately referred then to as the "godfather", the "moneybag of moneybags", the "blesser of people" (this man's gifts to those he is pleased with her legendary), the one who taught many wealthy men how to enjoy and spend money or how to put good money, immense amount of money at that to extraordinary use, the good friend and partner of the nouveau rich man par excellence, the 'extra terrestrial Kola Aluko" the one we would love to refer to as the "the lord of money", the ultimate wealthy man who many many legends were spawned around, seems to have disappeared into thin air.  Gone are the days when no week goes by that one wouldn't have heard something extraordinary about him. He seems to have gone into oblivion!!!! This was one of the few that even Forbes magazine described as "Top 10 Nigerian multimillionaires you have never heard of".

Even the well known brand SPOG Petrochemical, one of the best known out of the severals of the brands he owns and used to control has gone totally quiet too! Unlike in the heydays, no week goes by without hearing SPOG this, SPOG that!

In fact, even his wife, Angela the "thorough bred professional" who at a time some speculated should have taken over at Access Bank as the CEO (she was a director at the bank at a point) has gone totally off the radar too, living a more quiet existence. Gone seemingly are those days, when things used to standstill in deference to this gorgeous lady known to be a "finicky shopper & privileged shopper", the legend then was that even Selfridges and Harrods recognised her and that Chanel knew her as a preferred client!

At the height of the prestige and benevolence of Chief/Otunba Jide Omokore, the billionaire from Kogi State (from Isanlu town, the HQ of Yagba LGA), the man literally and single handedly delivered one of the most expensive and most spoken about weddings in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates that got tongue wagging for several weeks. The opulence of the wedding was so humongous, it was staggering. It was speculated then that the wedding could conservatively have cost the moneybag about $8 million dollars! That amount in today's Naira value would have been around ₦2.9billion Naira! His in-law was the then Permanent Secretary Ministry of Petroleum Resources.

Many of our then top politicians, serving government functionaries (state & federal), state Governors, royal fathers, top business owners fell over themselves to attend the "then destination wedding of the year", which even the Arabs saluted as a "sheer display of availability of extraordinary resources".

Imagine that the number of private jets and chartered flights that landed in Dubai at that time from Nigeria and from other guests that came from around the world, was so extraordinary, it was staggering. The play by play of that wedding report is still one of the most well read on this platform till tomorrow.

Imagine a pre-wedding shindig that was at the legendary "Cavalli Club Dubai" and everything was said to have been literally "on the house"! Even Wizkid, Naeto C, Deejay Jimmy Jatt and other artistes/entertainers were flown in to perform, including Godbless & the Eboni band! The weekends of June 7th to the 9th of 2013 was colossal by all standards then.

Guests that were lucky to have entered the JW Marriott Marquis the venue of the wedding, where 2 floors were completely taken over went home with the best phone as at that time, BB Q10, a complete teaser, B&Q sound system speakers, super luxury towel set, Samsung Galaxy tabs etc!

So now just imagine a man with the kind of resume we have painted above all of a sudden going totally quiet and incognito just as soon as this present administration came on board! Mennnnnnn PMB has obviously stopped a lot of those things that used to keep us titillated!

What a mess!

OUR SUNDAY DELIGHT PICTURE OF THE DAY FEATURING THE VERY SEXY & SPORTY LIZZY ANJORIN!!!


Lizzy Anjorin is a part of the Nollywood Industry, better still the Yoruba Nolly part of the industry. In that sector, she's one of the leading stars, one of the very few who loves to flaunt their "resources".

They all love to do the flaunting and fluxing, showing off their cars, new bags and shoes, basically their material possessions or new acquisitions, but even at that, they all have categories and class, amongst those in the "Yoru-Nolly sector", the somewhat controversial and quite outspoken Lizzy is probably in a class of her own, imagine as we quote "I am rich enough to afford my lifestyle" "How my sugar daddy surprised me at the premiere of my movie" "Women are born witches, stingy, heartless" "Sex can't satisfy men, they are polygamist. And may lust after their best friends or house keeper".

The above are some of Lizzy's quotable quotes!

At every given opportunity, she fluxes and she's not modest at all about it. Her dress style is also part of the flaunting; she loves the designer garbs/labels to a fault and she makes sure to always show her take on the latest trends whenever possible too.

We all (both male and female) have in us both the masculine and feminine sides, these traits comes up more, depending on the things we are engaged in to do, it is only when the opposite comes out far more in a particular gender that alarm bells begin to ring that maybe something is wrong or maybe the person is wired wrongly and might have given over to the other side!

Here in the above picture, the award winning, mother of one, Liz and her friend, or supposed P.a either arriving from or departing from somewhere, have explored their more masculine nature, in their sexy sporty wears and their low cut and cornrows looking more like dudes/paddies. It's something we see stars abroad do a lot and we applaud!

So Kudos to the Nollywood star and friend for a good style job, well done!

IMAGINE THAT LOLLIPOPS & FF WERE BEST OF PALS BEFORE!



Hilarious Fiction Part 2-

Lollipops is so very well known, no need to start raising dust or trying to describe, we have always always said she's gorgeous, but some have said no, that if it wasn't for her light colour she wouldn't be, don't know what some people have against her though! But we still maintain that she is beautiful as they come and her body is a to die for.  As much as lollipops is well known, so also is Olivia Pope 007 with the double same initials, like it is said so good she was initialed twice.

Both ladies were so close before, yummy friends like some tagged them then. They might or should still be friends, but not like in the heydays when you would see them both hanging out together and going to parties, events, occasions, concerts and things together at that time they were inseparable.

For the now stupendously rich Olivia Pope, it was even said that it was because those in her immediate circle then had partners in the entertainment industry that Olivia FF Pope then too was hellbent on going the same route, hence her dalliance with the then "waist master", who after dazzling her waist for a bit, soon went AWOL leaving Olivia hanging and devasted!

But that's not the story here, for she has since moved on by many miles, and has since thrown her regrets into the furnace of history doing good, having totally repackaged herself, while the dude's career that was on the high then, has since nose dived terribly with some saying that he might not resurrect again, him having left where the hits were flowing to join another house that has not had any hits to their name from all house members, save the queen of the pack who has been the only bright spark of recent.

According to the gist then Lollipops, Olivia and many of those in their circle were into "good ole carpet munching". It has always being their thing, it's not something that just started now, it's part of the privilege they all enjoy!

And they are not the only ones at all doing the thing, likes of TL, YN, AI, TM, CD, TD and very many others were into it. Only that some having enjoyed such shenanigans now try to act so puritanical, like they are the Blessed Virgin, who is the very definition and epitome of purity and chastity!

Lollipops and Olivia were said to have been such close buddies then, that they explored each others "treasure trove, that awesome Bermuda triangle" the island of sweetness and forbidden pleasure with utter abandon, that they must have discovered gems likes of rubies, amethyst, sapphire, diamonds et al in there!

So if some are just coming to terms with this knowledge, we are glad to let them know that, hmmmmmmm no be today at all ooooooo!!!!! It don tay well well! So, on the "switch" on the deejay's panel, is not and never the first, and neither ever going to be the last from all indications, maybe even this "outing", was specially and perfectly orchestrated! Wink! Wink!!

WHEN OBA ELEGUSHI HOSTED THE WORLD TO A WORLD CLASS WEDDING FOR HIS YOUNGER SIBLING

Muibat Eniola Oladunjoye


Natural dark skinned beauty

Traditional wedding cake

Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi & bride


Bride and groom- Muibat & Abdul Yekini

His Royal Majesty, Alaiyeluwa Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi Kusenla III, over the weekend at the Harbour Point Centre venue went all out, leaving no stone unturned to celebrate his younger brother- Prince Abdul Yekini Oyekanmi Elegushi, when the later began the first part of the 2 parts nuptial ceremony which had all the Lagos happening crowd at the well packaged and very well attended "traditional wedding and engagement ceremony" to awesomely beautiful and gorgeous "Muibat Eniola Oladunjoye".

You could see the joy and happiness and love written all over the face of the young monarch all through the occasion, which had the King of Fuji music all over the universe, the Inimitable K1 the ultimate on the bandstand.

The Fuji king like he is known to do when he is in the right kind of crowd, went over and above to display his best and do what he is best known for- praise singing, the kind that opens the pockets, purses etc without any stress! So it was a money rain at the event.

A careful look at things and the packages offered to the guests showed that good money was put to good use to make sure the event was first class in all ramifications.

With the way the first part went, we are too sure that the 2nd leg of the wedding, which is slated for this Saturday January 20 would blow off the roof and top the first leg by many miles.

At the occasion, the well loved and handsome king was ably supported by his better half, Olori Sekinat Elegushi, who as was expected razzled-dazzled all comers with her style and elegance, that diamond set she wore at the wedding was a killer set by all standards that must have set her purse back by some good millions.

It was obvious that all the ladies in attendance made good efforts too to "outstyle" each other, in their royal blue or was that indigo blue lace aso-ebi ensemble.

The supremely gorgeous and naturally beautiful bride Muibat, the daughter of well respected lawyer Chief Abdulazeez Abimbola Oladunjoye and his wife, the current Commissioner for commerce and industry, Hon. Saidat Olayinka Oladunjoye, was the centre of attraction and attention as her outfits fitted her to the "t" and all of the outfits were all super glam and stylish. She obviously relished the whole attention she got as she took everything in her stride, showcasing her beauty for all to see with Oomph and much aplomb.

The groom/husband is sure a lucky fellow, having such a rare beauty and well trained young and very beautiful lady as wife.

With the way last Saturday went, many are already looking forward to this Saturday for a reprise but on a grander scale and level to finish the whole ceremonies.

Kudos to the King and his Olori for a super event.

More after the break.
