Flavour expecting 1st child with ex-beauty queen, Sandra Okagbue

I heard this gist many weeks back but I wanted to be sure it's true before bringing it here and I've finally confirmed from a very reliable source...with some details I can't even share here...:-). So yes, Flavour Nababia is expecting his first child with ex-Delta soap queen and model, Sandra Okagbue.

Sandra, who was once linked to Mikel Obi, left Nigeria for the US in June, and is expected to give birth some time this month.

The hot couple started dating last year and showed they were really smitten when they started using each others photos on their DPs. When I asked someone close the Flavour if there was marriage in the cards for the singer and beauty queen, he said no.
"The last thing on Flavour's mind right now is marriage. She said he's responsible for the pregnancy and Flavour has accepted it but as for marriage, don't hold your breath"

Footballer Emmanuel Emenike in N30million Enugu land dispute

Nigerian star striker Emmanuel Emenike is currently at war with the Enugu State Government over 13 plots of land worth N30 million which he bought to build a sports academy in Enugu according to a report from AfricanFootball.

According to the report, soldiers have invaded the property in Enugu and have prevented any work on it, a development that hasn't gone down well with the footballer. Emenike said he bought the 13 plots of land after the World Cup in Brazil through a special assistant to the Enugu State Governor, Frank Ugwunweze, who handed all documents concerning the land in Emenike's name to the striker.
"I worked hard to make my money, I know what I pass through on the pitch before I earn my living and it will be unfair if what am hearing about my land in Enugu State was true.'' The striker said. Continue...

Happy New Month, People!

Hey you, yes you!
You better get to living life to the fullest
You better get to learning to love yourself unconditionally because you're worth it.
You better get to giving all you have to those who deserve it. And don't forget to throw in a little forgiveness to those who hurt you and loving those who love you.
You better get to showing a bit more concern about where you're going in life.
You better don't sweat the small stuff and keep your chin up when times are tough
And if it gets too rough, fall on your knees and talk to the Man above.

Happy New Month to you and yours. May all your dreams come true!

The Grave Allegations Of Stephen Davis - By Femi Fani Kayode

Article written by former minister, Femi Fani Kayode.

I read the grave allegations made by an Australian by the name of Mr. Stephen Davis about those that he believes are behind Boko Haram. He made some very serious allegations, he mentioned names and I would be interested in seeing the hard evidence that he claims to have. 
I have always said that I believe that anyone, no matter which political party that person belongs to and no matter how highly placed or powerful that person may be, that is involved with Boko Haram ought to be captured, caged, flogged and brought to justice because I regard such people as nothing but bloodthirsty beasts.

Sad video: 9 year old boy slaps the heck out of his mum after finding her high on heroine on the street

A 9 year boy who found his mum high on heroine on the street, slapped the shit out her in a shocking video that was posted on instagram. The distraught little boy can be heard screaming "mummy, wake up. Can you talk to me? Wake up" while the woman stares blankly at him, making him slap her again and again. Feel so sad for the child. With a mum like this, he's probably raising himself. He shouldn't have hit her like that but I can understand his frustration. See the very sad video after the cut.

Late PH doctor knew diplomat had Ebola Virus – Rivers State Govt

At a press conference on Friday evening August 29th, Rivers State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Samson Parker, said that late Dr. Iyke Enemou, who treated ECOWAS diplomat Olu Koye (pictured above), was aware that Mr Koye had the Ebola Virus Disease. 
"He had received the late Dr. Patrick Sawyer in Lagos. Upon developing the symptom, confided in a female colleague, called Lilian, who contacted the late Enemuo. It was after contact was established with Dr. Enemuo that Olu Koye flew to Port Harcourt to see him. To conceal his movement, Koye, who had been quarantined among other people for having primary contact with the late Dr. Sawyer, the Liberian-American who transmuted the Ebola virus into Nigeria, sneaked out of the isolation unit where he was being observed and took a flight to Port Harcourt and switched off his phone so that he could not be reached or traced should he answer a call.” Continue...

Do you agree that Kim K and Beyonce have revolutionized our generation's view of what beautiful is?

Speaking with Access Hollywood last week, actress and singer Demi Lovato, 22, said Kim K and Beyoncé's famous curves have helped refine beauty and made a whole generation of women see it is not all about being skinny, making it easier for women these days to accept and embrace their full figures.
"When I was growing up and when I was a pre-teen, the people that I had to look up to for body image were extremely underweight. They were all very bony at that time and that was the in thing. But now I'm glad I have curves and role models to look up to that also have curvaceous physiques.
'I really credit women like Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian, they completely revolutionized what our generation's view of perception of what beautiful is and I really think that they had a huge impact on that." Demi said. You agree?

Photos: Child labour - Young girl made to wash truck everyday

Child abuse is not only when you hit a child, giving them hard labour is also part of child abuse. And I consider asking a young girl to wash a truck this big every day as hard labour.

According to a LIB reader, one of her neighbours makes a young girl who lives with them who she says is between 12-15 years, to wash their truck either at night or in the morning...every single day. She says passersby only watch and complain but nobody has done anything about it. They believe her life is at risk because she tries to manage her space as other vehicles pass. This is happening at Kings Avenue, Ben Mill Road, Ogodu Berger, in case the authorities want to look into it.

Or are there people who think this is OK? See more photos after the cut...

Ebola: Fmr President Obasanjo expresses thoughts on late Sawyer

Former president Obasanjo has expressed his thoughts on Sawyer, his act and those who made it possible for him to enter Nigeria with the disease and spread it. Speaking at an event held at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, Ogun state today, Obasanjo said;
"It is devilish enough Patrick Sawyer had to spread this and indeed spread it to Nigeria in connivance with some Liberian authorities from his country, because they knew he had it before he came to Nigeria. The EVD has started to take its toll on the country and the West African sub region. The toll is not only on the number of those who are ill or dead but on the communities, countries, regions and sub-region"
