Kim And Kanye Going Apart???

Image
Yesterday, Yahoo News released a report saying that Kim and Kanye seemed distant at the VMAs. Below is how they reported it...

There seemed to be a “diskonnect” between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West at the 2016 MTV VMAs. The power couple was the toast of the room last night - everyone wanted to take selfies with her or get him alone to hear one of his bizarre rants in person. But with all the behind-the-scenes cameras running on MTV.com, aka the best part of last night’s show, they seemed “on” when the spotlight was on them and “off” when it wasn’t.

In their front row seats, the pair, who married in 2014, had their arms around one another and were even gazing into each other’s eyes. (Oh, Kanye, you genius you. Oh, Kim, you are the most beautiful woman on the planet.) Backstage though, they sat apart even though there were chairs side by side. They seemed far more into their phones than each other.

Vigilante Kills Celebrant In Aba

Tragedy struck in Aba at the weekend when an unknown operative of the Abia State Vigilante Service, AVS, popularly known as ‘Bakassi Boys’, shot dead a female birthday celebrant at a popular eatery in Ariaria area of the city.

Eyewitnesses told Vanguard that the celebrant was attracted to sporadic gunshots being fired by the AVS operative and appealed to him to stop as her guests were terrified. But the gun allegedly went off and hit the celebrant who died on the spot. The incident caused tension in the area, forcing customers at the fast food centre to scamper to safety while business owners shut their shops.

The AVS operative would have been lynched by an angry mob but for the timely intervention of a police patrol team who was alerted to the scene. “The lady was celebrating her birthday at the fast food. She went outside as her guests complained of gunshots being fired. The lady was asking him why he shot into the air having known that she was hosting her friends at the fast fo…

NYSC Can Be Richer Than Dangote

The Africa Union (AU) has stated that the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) can be richer than Dangote because the scheme is accepted in all parts of the country for the skills it has and is still imparting in the youths.

To this end, the AU has indicated its willingness to partner the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) in skills acquisition for youths in Nigeria. The AU Envoy in Nigeria, Dr Tunji Asaolu, gave the indication on Monday in Abuja when he paid a courtesy visit to the Director- General of NYSC, Brig.-Gen. Sule Kazaure. Asaolu noted that the NYSC was the only body that could help the Federal Government to reduce the burden of unemployment in Nigeria. “We want to partner NYSC, using corps members to run teachers volunteer scheme and use these teachers in a survey and those who perform well will be retained.

“We are encouraging people to develop skills in production and agriculture; our partnership will create jobs, enrich the economy and develop the country at large. “NY…

Grapevine: Why Freeze, Of CoolFm Lost His Job

Image
On Air Personality Freeze’s current dilemma is a lesson for everyone. But as we ponder, the questions continue to pour in on whether or not his sack was really justified given the reasons cited by the management at Cool FM.

To be fair, it is sad seeing Freeze get sacked at a company he’s devoted so much to in the last one and half decade of his life.

There are several reasons his time at Cool FM ended like this and according to grapevine sources one of the reasons is that the head honcho at Cool FM, Amin Moussalli, is reportedly unpredictable in nature, which means no staff is indispensable. We don’t know how true this is anyway.


Again, sources say the controversial radio host is exactly what he is – which is controversial!

In the wake of his issues with Basketmouth all 2016 long, he was not just feuding on social media, he was also falling out with his employer(s), insiders say.


"Wenger Refused To Sign Me Up"

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has revealed that he asked Arsene Wenger to sign him for Arsenal on a free transfer in 2014. Ferdinand, now a TV pundit with BT Sport saw his contract expire at United at the end of the 2013/2014 season and had offers to sign for different clubs.

Ferdinand joined QPR before retiring at the end of the 2014-15 season having made just 11 appearances during his time in the capital.

The 37-year-old has now disclosed that he reached out to Arsenal boss Wenger, though a move to the club that represented United’s biggest rivals for much of Ferdinand’s time at Old Trafford did not materialise.

In response to a poster claiming Ferdinand should have moved to Arsenal on social media site Twitter, the former West Ham and Leeds defender posted: “I did reach out to Mr Wenger!!” I did reach out to Mr Wenger!! https://t.co/8jcm4JJbPj — Rio Ferdinand (@rioferdy5) August 29, 2016 You mad….was when i was out of contract at @ManUtd https://t.co/MzaGn7ndaK …

Nigeria Govt Aims To Leverage Space Technology

The Nigerian government on Monday said it is committed to the development of space technology, particularly as a way to advance the economy.

Space science and technology can provide a formidable alternative to oil, which is the only major source of income of the West African country, Minister of Science and Technology Ogbonnaya Onu said at the opening of the 16th Annual National Space Dialogue in Abuja.

Ondo APC Crisis Takes A New Turn

The crisis within the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo state on the forthcoming primary election of the party in Monday took another dimension as the surroundings of the party secretariat located along Oyemekun road in Akure, Ondo state capital, was laced with fetish objects.

The objects, which include goat and dog heads, red, white and black cloths, local pap, salt and some cash prepared in a plate, were sprinkled with red palm oil while palm frond were tied at the entrance of the party office to signify the sealing of the premises.

The presence of the strange objects prevented the office staff at the secretariat of the party from gaining entry while the party’s secretariat was turned to center of attraction as many people thronged to have a glimpse of the situation.

Some of the staff who wanted to forcefully enter the office were cautioned by some traditionalists who explained that the palm fronts tied around the gate signified ‘No entry’

However, the objects were being clea…

.....As They Embrace After VMA's

Image
Look away Kim! Kanye West and his ex-girlfriend Amber Rose were all smiles and it was clear they had gotten over their feud as they were spotted embracing after bumping into each other at last night's MTV video music awards.

The former couple have had a long-standing bitter feud which reached its climax earlier this year with a very public row about sex- but judging by these pictures taken backstage, it looks like they finally have put their past issues behind them.


Kanye who attended the event with his wife had given a shout out to Amber when he said 'I see you Amber'


A source at the event last night told The Sun Online:

“Amber and Kanye met up backstage and it was surprising how well they got on. They couldn’t stop smiling at each other and Amber reached out to him as soon as she saw him. Kanye made a beeline for her.

"Release Your Detailed Medical Report"

Image
Donald Trump this morning took to Twitter to ask presidential rival Hillary Clinton to release her 'detailed' medical records saying he would also release his own.

Trump has for some time now tried to portray Clinton as without sufficient stamina to serve as president but a Clinton campaign spokes person said Sunday night that Clinton "is the only candidate in the race who has met the standard expected of presidential candidates and provided a detailed medical letter by her long time physician."


"Donald Trump has put forward a laughable letter that omits basic health information including the date of his exam, past medications, family medical history, heart rate, respiratory rate, EKG, or cholesterol level. Instead of continuing to push discredited conspiracy theories, Donald Trump needs to produce a real doctor's letter, written by a credible doctor, that details the state of his health for voters," Glen Caplin said in a Clinton campaign statement .

RCCG Pastor Murdered In Kaduna

Gunmen suspected to be herdsmen on Sunday night killed one Pastor Luka Ubangari of Redeemed Christian Church of God at Shawa village, near Godogodo, in Jema’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

Ubangari was said to have been ambushed, shot and killed while returning from an evangelical visit to Golkofa village.

The incident occurred few days after Governor Nasir El-Rufai condemned incessant herdsmen killings during a visit to the area.

El-Rufai had described the killings as ‘senseless’ and promised to arrest the perpetrators.

A source, who craved anonymity, noted that despite the governor’s promises, the herdsmen “who are out to remove us from our ancestral lands, continue to kill our people.”

“We were happy that the Governor (Nasir El-Rufai) had visited and assured us of improved security and that the killers would be found and punished.

“To our shock, Pastor Luka Ubangari was ambushed, shot and killed as he was riding his motorcycle after an evangelical visit to Golkofa.”

APC Warns PDP Squarely

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) should come clean and tender an unreserved apology to Nigerians for their disastrous 16-year rule that has left the people pauperised and traumatised.

The Media Aide to the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Segun Dipe, made the call today in a statement in Abuja. “Due to PDP’s perfidy, our country’s resources were stolen and opportunities frittered away. But instead of being contrite, the PDP is arrogantly putting itself up as the alternative to a government that is barely one year in office and has inherited a totally ruined economy.

This is brazenly irresponsible, ” the statement said. It said it was just as well that the PDP has not even been able to reposition itself to provide robust opposition to the APC-led Federal Government, adding that PDP’s lack of patriotism, recklessness and outright wickedness towards the ordinary Nigerians have finally caught up ‎with the disgraced former ruling party.

New Political Powers For President Buhari

Image
The Reuters has obtained the information that President Muhammadu Buhari is planning to ask the House of Assembly for emergency powers for one year allowing him to take “emergency” decisions to revive the worsening economy. The source stated that the federal government put together a bill titled “Emergency Economic Stabilisation” giving the president extra powers such as amending laws which will be submitted to parliament.

President Buhari was reportedly looking for fasting plans to improve the investment climate. The bill would permit the president for example to ease visa restrictions for investors and give them inducements, plans that have been postponed.

On August 19, Finance Minister Kemi Adeosun said Nigeria is to assign 60 billion naira ($182 million) more spending on capital projects as part of the 2016 budget, coming on top of 400 billion already sp…

*VIRGINITY WITHOUT EXTRA OIL*

Image
A lot of ladies complain that guys walk away from them simply because they refused to give them sex, some are even tempted to give away their virginity just to keep the guys.

*Let me be very blunt here*😏.

*Virginity* may not be the real reason the guys go away. Yes, no doubt, there are several guys who want sex, and if they don’t get it they walk away. The problem may not be with the virginity or the sex. The story of the Ten virgins in the Bible reveals that
both the wise and foolish were both virgins, the other five were not refused from seeing the bridegroom because they were virgins or because they lost their virginity, but because they were foolish; they were called foolish because they had nol EXTRA OIL.

Most ladies don’t have any EXTRA OIL to sustain any relationship. While many brag about their virginity, that is all they have to offer, they forget that virginity ends the night after the wedding, but *EXTRA OIL is what will keep marriage going.*

Egypt Suspends 8 Tv Anchors...

— Most Egyptian journalists have had to watch their tongues and tone down their reporting during the past three years to keep their jobs under a military-dominated government.
Now, the state is ordering some women working as television anchors to practice a similar restraint with their
weight.


Earlier this week, Mr Safaa Hegazy, the director of state-run Egyptian radio and television, barred eight anchorwomen from appearing on the air for a month, saying they were overweight, the state-owned Al-Ahram news website confirmed. Mr Hegazy ordered the women to go on a diet during their suspensions, Al-Ahram said.

Ms Khadija Khatab, one of the eight anchorwomen, said that she had not yet been formally notified of Mr Hegazy’s order, but added that she was recently told that “measures will be taken against” those who fail to lose weight by mid-September, according to an interview she gave to a privately owned television station.

Ms Khatab said she was offended that coverage of her ordeal…

Hamza Bin Laden, who was groomed by his fanatical father from an early age, also called on Islamists in

BEIJING Has Employed More Than 300 "Odour Smellers"

BEIJING has employed more than 300 "Odour Smellers" to sniff out the pong of faeces from homes and businesses feeding into the teeming city's sewage plants and rubbish dumps.
The men and women from the Chinese capital's Environment and Sanitation Monitoring Station spend their days sticking their noses into some of its most repugnant smells.

They collect air samples from various waste plants and take them back to the lab to carry out tests by smelling watered-down samples.

Results are calculated using a specific formula to see whether the emissions meet national standards.

And if the sniffs aren't up to scratch, the Urban Management Committee will determine whether to punish the waste plants or get them to rectify the situation.
Growing environmental awareness in China has led to anti-pollution protests in several cities and the work is seen as vital.

Odour Smeller Zhang Chao said despite technological advances instruments can only show raw data and are unable t…

Nigerian Military Threatens Journalist

The Nigerian military should cease threatening freelance journalist Ahmad Salkida with prosecution for not acting as an informer, the Committee to Protect Journalists said today. The military has said the journalist could face terrorism charges if he does not provide it with information he gained in the course of his reporting on the militant group Boko Haram.


In a statement carried by Nigerian news websites on August 14, military spokesman Col. Sani Kukasheka Usman declared Salkida and two civil-society workers - Aisha Wakil and Ahmed Bolori - "wanted for interrogation" regarding the location of over two hundred school girls Boko Haram abducted in April 2014.

He said, "We are also liaising with other security agencies for their arrest if they [fail] to turn up.&qu…

"I Warned Nigerians"

When I warned the Nigerian people about what the APC represented and that, if given power, they would be the most reactionary, repressive, vindictive, insensitive, vicious, thin-skinned, paranoid, divisive and, worse of all, incompetent government in the history of Nigeria no-one listened.


When I told the people that the leaders of the APC were not only unfit to hold power but that they were also Nigeria's local equivalent to Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood no-one listened.

When I warned the people that their initial plan was to field a Muslim/Muslim ticket for the 2015 presidential election (until public outrage killed the idea) no-one listened.

When I told the people about the future implications of the dangerous sectarian seed that the APC was planting in our politics by openly encouraging Muslim clerics in the north to preach in the mosques that a vote for Jonathan was a vote for an "infidel" and when I pointed out the fact that all those…
