Actress Foluke Daramola set to drag Bukola Fasuyi to court for libel

Actress Foluke Daramola is getting ready to sue her former friend and journalist Bukola Fasuyi for defamation of character. Bukola had claimed in an interview that she introduced Foluke to her new husband, Kayode Salako, and that Foluke had used juju to charm Kayode and break his home. (If you missed it, read the story HERE)

According to people close to Foluke, she and some family members have contacted their lawyer to sue Bukola for character assassination. Bukola will soon appear in court to prove that Foluke indeed used diabolical means to obtain Kayode Salako.

Bukola told an Encomium reporter this week that she's not bothered about a lawsuit and is waiting to get the petition from Foluke's lawyers. She said she still feels bad for introducing Foluke to Kayode because the introduction was for Foluke to get financial help from Kayode and not to take him from his wife. "I'm not bothered about a lawsuit though Kayode has sent a threat message to me that we would meet in court. I'm more bothered about Kayode's wife. I hope she forgives me" She said.

Doctors save cocaine smuggler’s life at Lagos Airport

Two suspected drug traffickers have tested positive for narcotic ingestion at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos.
Officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency said that one of the suspects inserted four wraps of cocaine, weighing 210 grammes, in his anus while another ingested 67 wraps, also of cocaine, weighing 1.085kg.
NDLEA Airport Commander, Hamza Umar, said tension was high when one of the suspects, Onedigbo Chibueze Emmanuel, 28, apprehended during the screening on a Qatar Airline flight going to Pakistan,could not expel one wrap of cocaine.
“While Akwaeze Anthony successfully expelled all 67 wraps of cocaine he ingested without assistance, the case of Onedigbo Chibueze Emmanuel, who inserted four wraps of cocaine in his anus,was different,” he said
“He was unable to expel one of the wraps until medical doctors came to his rescue.
“We were disturbed because his life was in danger.”
Preliminary investigation revealed that Onedigbo Chibueze Emmanuel is an unrepentant drug trafficker who was recently deported from Thailand after serving a three-year jail term over drug related offences.
According to Onedigbo who hails from Okija in Anambra State: “It is true that I was deported in February 2013 after serving three years jail term in Thailand.
“I went back into drug smuggling becausethere was nothing for me to sustain myself.
“My desire was to get some money from the drug deal and establish a business that can help me prepare for my future.

Controversial N4.5billion Yatch Hotel Disappears From Lagos

The controversial N4.5 billion Sunborn Yacht Hotel, brought from England and moored on the Lagos waters for over four years, has finally disappeared from the state after the controversies surrounding its ownership.

It will be recalled that the custom built yacht, with 102 elegant suites, arrived the Lagos waters in November 2008  and instantly became a cynosure of all eyes.

The yacht, expected to serve as a four_star hotel, was, however , bedeviled by controversies since its arrival which led to it abandonment and subsequent rusting away on the water-ways.

When Vanguard visited the quay, by the Army Officers’ Mess at Marina, Lagos Island Local Government Area, there was no sign that such expensive and eye catching structure ever berthed there.

Enquiries from the state government and even residents of the state yielded no result as no one could  say specifically what happened to the multi_purpose built yacht that moored on the state water for over four years.Commissioner for Tourism, Mr. Oladisun Holloway, when asked to comment on the development denied the state government’s knowledge of the where about of the supposed ‘first African luxury hotel on water’.

According to Holloway; “As citizens of the state can’t find it, so is the state government also. The government can’t say precisely where the Yacht is berthed at present.”

The commissioner reiterated that “the state government doesn’t have any commitment in the yacht. And I don’t know why the residents of the state should be interested in whereabouts of the Sunborn yacht.

The four-star hotel, originally owned by the City of London, was conceptualised as a leisure and  business centre to service the higher echelon of Lagos society. Mr. John Smart, a boat operator, said he could not say accurately the whereabouts of the four_storey multi_purpose built yacht, since removal last month.

According to Smart; “I cannot say the date when it was removed but all we saw on one fateful day was a large number of people who crowded the Sunborn Yacht and towed it away with another ship.  They didn’t inform anyone where they will be taking the yacht to and since then we were yet to see it.”

So, the question on the lips of residents and concerned citizens which has remained unresolved is; “where is the Sunborn Yacht Hotel and who is behind the deal”. Time will tell.

Chioma Chukwuka’s AMAA plane drama, by AY

RECALLING what happened between Chioma Akpotha and Yemisi (The Vanguard reporter) on the AMAA flight from Port Harcourt, one would have expected a cultured woman to be contrite and apologize forthwith, since everybody is error-prone. I crave your indulgence to say this not because the former is a movie star and the latter a journalist. More so, I dread not to raise my voice for the truth and my compassion against injustice.


It was quite unfortunate to read a report from today’s Vanguard Online in favour of Yemisi (their staff), as against Chioma Akpotha who was publicly insulted alongside every Igbo speaking individual on that flight, by Yemisi. Besides, if some of us do have the franchise to suffer disharmony with our personal values, I still want to believe that in reporting a case, Professional Journalism should keep it quite professional by not identifying with any side in an issue of this manner. But this is obviously not the case of the Vanguard reporter who wrote the story between Chioma Akpotha and Yemisi. The reporter in question has proven to me that fiction can sometimes make a better job of the truth and an exaggerated relativism.
Exaggerated relativisim
How could you in every sense of professionalism start a story involving your fellow reporter and Chioma Akpotha by saying “Like most Nollywood stars, Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha is not given to pretence. She’s always ready to vibrate and return fire-for-fire. Last Sunday evening was not different. Smarting from the frustration and exhaustion that greeted everyone after the AMAA awards and the endless wait at the Port-Harcourt International Airport, Chioma boarded the evening flight back to Lagos, determined to cause another stir on board”.

Chris Brown’s Dad: “Leave Rihanna alone, Chris”

AQFOH chris-brown-dad-e1340017545134

If Rihanna is wise, she should stay away from her violent lover Chris Brown; this is what his own father thinks.
In his first interview about the couple’s reconciliation, the singer’s dad, Clinton Brown, has come publicly to show his disappointment that the fiery pair rekindled their romance in January.
Rihanna, 25, shocked fans by taking back 23-year-old Chris, four years after he left her black and blue in a vicious assault on the night of the Grammys in 2009.
And even Clinton (Chris Brown’s father) believes they should have stayed apart because their similar personalities make them a dangerous and unbalanced combination.

LASGIDI WAHALA: Bus Driver Strips LASTMA Official Nakéd At Point Of Duty

 A 35-year-old commercial bus driver, Abraham Ikujunni, has been arrested for allegedly assaulting an official of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority and resisting arrest.

According to LASTMA authorities, the bus driver allegedly stri*ped an official, Oyeyemi Olusola, ripping his pair of trousers apart.

It was learnt that the incident occurred on Friday in Ikorodu area of the state.

It was learnt that the suspect was accosted for not wearing a seatbelt before the incident occurred.

A LASTMA official, who craved anonymity, said, “Around 8:26am on Friday, the LASTMA official apprehended the suspect around Odonguyan area of Ikorodu for not using a seatbelt.

“The official entered his vehicle and told him to park properly. He however drove the official into a street where there were commercial motorcycle riders

“The riders then supported the suspect and the LASTMA official was assaulted and his pair of trousers was torn. Fortunately, backup arrived and the suspect was arrested.”

Our correspondent sighted the suspect’s statement in LASTMA office. He denied assaulting the official, but admitted tearing his trousers.

He wrote, “My bus was faulty and I was trying to fix it when the LASTMA man accosted me. He said I should park properly so as not to obstruct the flow of traffic and I parked. He wanted to arrest me and I resisted so a struggle ensued.

“He slapped me and my shirt got torn in the process. I then engaged him in a struggle and while people were trying to separate us, his trousers got torn in the process. Please, I am also a victim.”

The LASTMA spokesperson, Bola Ajao, could not be reached for comment.

Private Jet Saga: Amaechi Is Not Above The Law – Presidency

aircraft saga 

The Presidency has distanced President Goodluck Jonathan from the troubles being faced by the Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi just as it added that no governor is not above the law.
Briefing newsmen in Abuja on Monday on the reported grounding of Amaechi’s aircraft by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Mr. Ahmed Gulak, denied the Rivers State Government’s claim that it was been witch-hunted.
The presidential aide added that it was about obedience to laid down rules.
Gulak said, “If you are a governor and you are flying a private jet, you must do it within the extant laws. There are laws governing the usage of private jets in this country and the world over and because you are a governor does not give you the licence to flout the laws governing your country.
“Nigerians should be told in clear terms that no governor is above the law and the fact that you have immunity does not mean that you flout the law the way you want.”
He added that Jonathan had no interest in who becomes chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum.
He stated, “Mr. President is ready to work with any chairman of the NGF.  After all, the President is a constitutional organ while the NGF is not a constitutional organ.
“So why should Mr. President care about them. He does not care about who becomes the chairman of NGF.”
Gulak also said the president had not authorised any minister to canvass votes for him for 2015 presidential election; a reb*ttal that became necessary following a statement credited to the Minister of State for the Federal Capital Territory, Olajumoke Akinjide, during a ceremony in Ibadan, where she openly canvassed votes for the President in 2015.
The presidential aide stated, “We have said it before that whether Mr. President will contest in 2015 will be unveiled to Nigerians in 2014. Whatever anybody is saying or doing is on his own.”
He also denied plans by the current administration to probe former President Olsegun Obasanjo.
Gulak said, “I believe that the former President (Obasanjo) expressed his opinion or his fears but Mr. President has not said he will probe Oby Ezekwesili. The fact is that Nigerian government, especially this government, is always and constantly under probe.”

Rivers State PDP Gives Amaechi 48-Hrs To Explain Ownership Of Grounded Plane, Suspends Lawmakers


The crisis rocking the Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party took a turn for the worse on Monday when the executive of the party issued a 48-hour ultimatum to the State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, to explain the ownership of the aircraft that was recently banned by the Federal Government.
The state PDP also announced the suspension of 27 out of 32 members of the Rivers House of Assembly from the party for refusing to rescind their decision to suspend the Obio-Akpor Local Government Chairman, Mr. Timothy Nsirim, the vice chairman of the council and 17 councillors.
Among those suspended from the party for allegedly flouting the party’s directives are the Speaker, Mr. Otelemaba Amachree; the Deputy Speaker, Mr. Leyii Kwanee; and the House Leader, Mr. Chidi Lloyd.
The state chairman of the party – Mr Felix Obuah, while speaking with newsmen at the party secretariat in Port Harcourt, said Amaechi would face disciplinary action if he failed to comply with the ultimatum by the party over the controversial aircraft.
Obuah further warned that the PDP would not condone a situation where public funds were frittered away.
He said, “The Rivers State Government should within 48 hours explain how billions of naira from the state coffers was used to purchase the aircraft. Where is the aircraft purportedly bought with the Rivers State funds and tax payers’ money?
“From the records made available to us made available to us and the statements credited to the Acting Director General of Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, Joyce Nkemakolam, the aircraft Bombardier D.D700, Global Express aircraft with Registration Number 5N5N65 RS purportedly bought by the Rivers State Government was false as its registration showed that it is owned by the Bank of Utah Trustee of Salt Lake City, Utah United States of America.”

Fuji exponent Adewale Ayuba thinks our pop stars are nothing but Fuji singers in the real sense.

Angry Mobs Demolish PHCN Lagos Office Over Crazy Bills

An angry mob in Abaranje, Ikotun area Lagos State, southwest Nigeria, went on the rampage and attacked the staff of Power Holding Company of Nigeria, PHCN, and destroyed their property.
The attack which took place at the weekend followed what electricity consumers in the area described as the crazy electricity bills slammed on them by the PHCN workers.

The police at Ikotun division intervened and brought the situation under control before they could set the office ablaze.
A policeman identified as Mathew was severly macheted during the fracas and he is critically lying at Igando General Hospital where doctors are battling to save his life.

I Let B-red And Sina Rambo Leave HKN, Because They Lived In my Shadow - Davido

Its no long a gist that that HKN Boss Davido and his cousins, SinaRambo & B-Red even had to physically fight themselves because the cousins were not happy that Davido was getting all the shine.

B-Red got himself a new deal with another company after both cousins decided on leaving the label.
Sina Rambo, though denied the reports in a separate interview with another media house, but according to a recent interview,here's what Davido had to say about the whole issue when HipHopWorld asked him about it.

"B-Red & Sina Rambo, people knew they were with me for about two years. But earlier this year, I felt like it’s time for them to start their own stuff. I’m sure they were even tired of being in the shadow of me and all that.

B-Red, I think has a management deal elsewhere with another company, I’m not sure exactly, but they shot his video for him and everything. And Sina is in America working on some new material. I really want them to stand on their own because they’re talented and need to be heard, instead of them being behind me all the time. We still family”.

Davido may be recruiting new soldiers to replace the ‘lost’ ones. In March, he had signed Ghanaian rapper Deekay and more recently added singer Orezi to his list.

xclusive Photos From Mode Men Black Night Event [Uti,Alex,Okey,Sheyi]

This year 2013, marks the 7th anniversary of Abubakar Tafawa-Balewa's labour of love & sweat. It's none other than the brand known to all as Mode Men. Undoubtedly one of the best packaged men's magazine in Nigeria. That the brand is still existing in a country like ours that most often does not support non-criminal and good initiative has been by the grace of God.


So to show to the world, that it has been God all this while, the 7th anniversary edition of the magazine was dedicated to God. A form of thank you for thus far yet he has blessed the brand.

To also mark the 7th anniversary of the brand, the publisher's of the magazine like they usually do had their annual ''Black Night gathering. This year's edition was tagged ''Black Night 7, and venue of choice was the compact hall of the Radisson Blu Hotel, on Ozumba Mbadiwe Street, Victoria Island, Lagos. Unlike how they normally do the event, this particular one was a more intimate, much smaller event, that had only 60 of the friends and supporters and sponsors of the brand in attendance.

Sport Rich List 2013: David Beckham tops the list

He may be in the twilight of his playing years, but the near-universal adoration heaped on David Beckham has helped him remain the highest earner in British sport, according to the Sunday Times Sport Rich List.
Boxers, golfers, racing drivers and basketball players – all fall by the wayside in the global ‘brand Beckham’ that has seen the 38-year-old amass a fortune of £165 million – and that is without his wife’s bank balance of £35m.
Beckham’s wealth, amassed from endorsement deals and salary payments from his company, Footwork Productions, over the last decade, make him easily the richest British sports star of all time.


1 David Beckham £165m
2 Dave Whelan £160m

Why Empress Njamah is still single

In a chat with The Nation, Empress Njamah explains why she is still single despite her being beautiful and curvy. In her own words, she says:

I’m gonna say this alright; I don’t care how people take it, the days when marriages were sweet and all beautiful are no more. If you listen to how your parents got married and how those days it was sweet, it’s not like that anymore. I’ve escorted a lot of people into marriages, I won’t say I’ve escorted them out but I’ve witnessed them come out of it. So psychologically it’s not good for people and then being what we are, a lot of people think because she’s this, because she has that I don’t think I will be able to handle them. A lot of people can’t stand an industrious woman especially if she’s doing well. It’s the mentality of the people. If a man looks at me, I’m a car freak alright. I have five cars and I’m not doing it because I’m trying to show off, a lot of people don’t even know that they are my cars.But I’m trying to be honest with you and I’m always trying to say it the way it is, not minding whatever. If a man comes and says because of blablabla, he cannot handle me, then he shouldn’t bother. Every woman’s dream is to get married but it’s not just to get married but to get married to your friend. I want to marry my friend. I’m yet to meet my friend.

Obama I Have 99 Problems and Now Jay-Z Is One,” – President Obama

The annual White House Correspondent’s Dinner is typically a light-hearted affair, and this year’s installment was no exception. The Dinner tends to serve as an opportunity for the President to show off his sense of humor and pop culture savvy, and with a President as charismatic as Barack Obama, these events tend to be ripe with entertaining moments.

Barack Obama

While Obama obviously poked fun at himself and at those right wing media outlets who consistently have derided him throughout his two terms in office, he made sure to offer up enough hip-hop references to have the community talking for quite some time. Prior to the President stepping to the podium, the crowd in attendance was treated to DJ Khaled’s “All I Do Is Win.” Obama clearly enjoyed the moment, even synchronizing his hand gestures to match the chorus.
“How do you like my new entrance music?” Obama jokingly asked the audience, waiting for those assembled to sit back down before going right into the rest of the speech.
Later on, Obama had the chance to take a slick jab at Jay-Z, who caused a media frenzy with his visit to Cuba and subsequent “Open Letter.” Talking about issues that he has to deal with that are out of his control, Obama said, “It’s unbelievable… I have 99 problems and now Jay-Z is one of them.” Interestingly enough, the President does not appear to be as concerned about Beyonce, who also went on the trip with her husband and created her own controversy at the recent inauguration by apparently lip-synching the National Anthem.
With the President entrenched in office for three more years at least, will the President continue to embrace hip-hop as openly as he did tonight, albeit in a joking manner? Is there any way Hov can offer up an appropriate response to Obama’s comments? More importantly, has the President discovered that Khaled’s ad-libs provide the self-confidence boost one needs to win a grueling election?

Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t cheat on his girlfriend with Brazillian Miss BumBum

 Cristiano Ronaldo and girlfriend Irina Shayak seen going for dinner at a restaurant in Madrid before the Champions league semi final against Borussia Dortmund
Superstar footballer Cristiano Ronaldo last night denied cheating on his girlfriend with a Brazilian model who won the title ‘Miss BumBum’ in a catwalk competition.
He says although he was at hotel, everything else is ‘fiction and forgery’.
Andressa Urach had claimed the Real Madrid striker slept with her in a hotel just 48 hours before a key Champions League semi final which his team lost 4-1 to German side Borussia Dortmund.
The 27-year-old told The Sun: ‘I have always thought Cristiano is one of the most gorgeous men in the world, so I couldn’t believe it when he got in touch with me.
‘He said he was very excited by my pictures online and one of the first things he asked me was if I really was a Miss Butt Brazil model.’
But Ronaldo said in a statement on Twitter last night: ‘I was informed that The Sun, faithful to its editorial line, will publish an article where is given voice to a so called Andressa – someone seeking the limelight on my account.
‘And I wonder why this happens one day before a very important game for my team. Deeply outraged by a situation intended, in vain, to affect my personal life.
‘I just want to clarify I was in fact at the Hotel Villa Magna on April 22 giving an interview to Manu Sainz, something the reporter himself is able to corroborate. Everything else is pure fiction and forgery.’
The woman had told The Sun it happened a day after the £80million former Manchester United forward was pictured leaving a restaurant in Madrid with his girlfriend Irina Shayk. Miss Shayt, 27, had her arms crossed and wore a downcast face.
Speaking about their tryst, she said: ‘It was incredible, his body’s perfect, like a Greek god. He went on for hours and would not stop talking about my butt.’
Miss Urach claimed Ronaldo told her he had dreamed about her behind and called her his ‘little horse’ before asking her to come to Madrid and meet up.
Miss Urach told how the pair linked up at the city’s £12,500-a-night Villa Magna hotel after she took a taxi there and waited for him in the lobby.


The day before: Ronaldo was snapped leaving the restaurant with his girlfriend the day before the alleged tryst. She looked furious
He arrived in a grey Audi R3 and parked in an underground car park before taking a private lift to his room, from where he texted her his room number, The Sun reported.
Ronaldo is dating Russian beauty Miss Shayk, who is known as one of the world’s top swimwear and lingerie models.
On Thursday she was in the UK attending the launch of the new Eleven Paris store in London.
The couple started dating three years ago - just weeks before Ronaldo announced he had become a father to a baby son with an unnamed American mother.
Although the Real Madrid player announced he had ‘exclusive guardianship’ of the tot Cristiano Jnr, his mother Dolores is helping to raise the child in Portugal.
Over the past few years, Irina seemed to have embraced the role as surrogate stepmother to the child and has been seen doting over the little boy on frequent occasions.
However, since they started dating in May 2010, the couple regularly go for weeks or sometimes months without seeing each other.
Irina is based in New York for her modelling work, but travels all over the world, while Ronaldo splits his time between Madrid and his native Portugal.
