Segun Arinze asks NFVCB boss to resign over Half Of A Yellow Sun

A few weeks ago, the film adaptation of Chimamanda Adichie's book Half of a Yellow Sun was to hit our cinema screens...but it was stopped. I heard the reason it was removed was because of the theme of the movie, the Hausa killing Ibo/biafra war story and because of the current situation in Nigeria, some scenes were asked to be cut from the movie by the Nigeria Film and Video Censors Board. I don't know if the scenes have been cut or what exactly is going on right now, but NFVCB has still refused to let the movie show in the cinemas

Actor and former Actors' Guild of Nigeria president Segun Arinze is now calling for the resignation of the Director-General of the Censors Board. His statement below...
Please tell Madam Patricia Bala of Nigeria Film and Video Censors Board to release the movie Half of a Yellow Sun. She has no reason to hold on to the movie. She has no right to censor the movie only to classify it. She saw it in Canada and even partnered with the producers in Canada during the premiere. What she is doing now is an embarrassment to government and a big insult to our dear industry, Nollywood. We are not in a military regime. She should kindly resign'. - Segun Arinze

Toll collection on Lekki-Bridge to continue, Lagos Attorney-General insists


A Federal High court this morning nullified collection of toll on the Lekki-Ikoyi bridge after a human rights lawyer, Ebun Adegboruwa, filed a lawsuit. But despite that ruling, the Lagos State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Ade Ipaye says toll collection on the bridge will continue.

The State Attorney General said this today a few hours after the Federal High court rulling
"The judgment read this morning did not specifically address many of the questions raised by the applicant, neither did it grant any of the declarations sought. So the road users will continue to pay. All the same, we are not ruling out any kind of interpretation”. Aside from the failure of the court to make any consequential order or declaration, the judgment contains at least two or three fundamental errors. And one of the errors is the assumption that the Private Public Partnerships Law of Lagos State, which we cited in support of toll collection, did not apply, simply because the bridge was not constructed by public-private partnership”. Ipaye said
The Attorney-General also revealed that the Lagos State Government plan to appeal the judgement and file an application for stay of execution

MEET Ibadan Prophet Who Has Not Had His Bath & Had Sex In 13 Years

After reading the headline, I know some of you will say the prophet must be smelling badly by now, but the truth is Prophet Wale Olagunji who heads Divine Seed of God Chapel Ministry in Ibadan, Oyo State does not smell and in fact moves about doing his daily activities and even looks neater than some people who takes their bath every day. The prophet said God spoke to him in year 2000 that he should stop taking his bath and separate himself from his wife and till now he has been doing that. Click below to read to read what he told City People magazine;

CP: Some years back, you came out that God instructed you to stop having your bath, is it true. And are you still on it?

Prophet: Yes, it is 13years now to be precise. Early 200 the Lord told me to stop taking my bath, separate myself from my wife and that I should stop taking all those soft drinks and wines. And since then, diligently, I have observed all those things.  

Whoever God wants to use for certain purposes on earth, there is a serious price attached to that calling. So I believe that is the price I am paying. As I am talking to you now, I have not taking my bath, if you want me to show you evidence, I will show you if you doubt all I am saying; I have not taking my bath since 2001 till this moment.

Phyno & Olamide For Star Music Trek

It’s obvious these two have a special bond and Badoo obviously hasn't forgotten the days when nobody wanted to feature him or feature with him, when few artistes like popular eccentric rapper Phyno had his back.

Although the dynamic duo have earlier collaborated on hit tracks such as Ghost mode and Dope money, they are rumoured to be working together on the first ever collaborative rap album, ‘2 Kings’. However, both performers have not officially indicated when if this will happen any time soon.

Fast forward March 29th 2014 both artistes will storm the Star Music Trek stage in Nsukka for the first leg of The Trek 2014 touring all over Nigeria.

Fingers crossed, that collabo just might come in earlier than expected!

Video: Deadly Ebola Virus is Spreading Fast in Guinea


UNICEF has announced that an Ebola Outbreak has killed at least 59 People in Guinea.

The epidemic has hit the capital city Conakry. “At least 59 out of 80 who contracted Ebola across the West African country have died so far” said UNICEF in a statement to Agence France-Presse (AFP).
Ebola is spreading FAST to other West African countries.

There are currently no known treatments or vaccines for Ebola, a viral hemorrhagic fever that kills up to 90 percent of those who become infected. The virus spread through direct contact with blood, faeces or sweat, sexual contact and unprotected handing of contaminated corpses.
This outbreak is particularly devastating because medical staff are among the first victims … hindering the response and threatening normal care in a country already lacking in medical personnel,” revealed UNICEF.

Prophet TB Joshua Addresses 'Disagreement' with Pastor Chris Oyakhilome on Masturbation

Prophet T.B. Joshua has countered insinuations that he is fighting with Christ Embassy Pastor Chris Oyakhilome over a session of questions that saw the respected ministers of God produce different answers.

You recall the two men of God had given different answers to the question 'If Abortion after rape was a sin'. Then again, when TB Joshua was asked if masturbation was a sin, he had said yes, that it was even as bad as fornication. A question to which Pastor Chris had replied saying masturbation wasn't a sin, sparking another huge online criticism of both pastors' teachings.

Reacting to the difference in their replies and evidently showing his support for Oyakhilome, Joshua wrote
this on his official Facebook page while answering a follower's question:

Mr Amun: How My Wife Died At NIS Recruitment Exercise In Benin!

                                       Late Mrs Sandra's Family                                             
The husband of one of those who didn’t make it alive back home at the just held NIS recruitment exercise in Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium Benin City has asked the Government to please provide a job for him to be able to look after the three children the deceased has now left alone in his care.


According to Mr Amun, he and his late wife woke up very early that day to be able to get to the venue on time. After they had queued for a while, he became tensed and almost couldn't breathe and asked his wife to let them go home, but she told him to look for a seat outside the stadium and relax while she remains on the queue.

While outside the stadium, his wife’s brother (who also came for the same exercise) ran into him and asked after his sister, and he told him she was on the queue.

Primate Ayodele's prophecies for D'banj, Davido, Okonjo-Iweala

Why are all these prophets now prophesying about celebs? I thought it was government officials and situations in the country? Anyway, Primate Ayodele, the head of Inri Evangelical Spiritual Church, (pictured right) whose predictions are said to always come to past, recently shared his prophecies for 2014 and mentioned Davido and D'banj.

About Davido, he said the singer needs to be a bit more careful and increase security around himself and his crew as a kidnap attempt is in the offing. Once again, we forbid this.

About D'banj, the prophet said he needs to be very careful or he would be defrauded over a foreign business deal.

About the Finance Minister & coordinating Minister for the Economy, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Primate Ayodele said she might bow out of office before the end of this administration.

Aki was also asked if he ever wonders why he was created in the form he is. His answer after the cut..

"I have not had any sexual experience' - singer Jodie says

In a recent interview with the NETng, Kuchi Kuchi crooner, Jodie Odiete says she has never had any sexual experience. Jodie was asked what her take was on sexual relationships and she said;
"Personally to me it is wrong because I am not married. I am not condemning those who do it, this is just my personal opinion. I really should not have an opinion on sex because I don't have any experience. Sex means nothing to me so I can't get into any relationship just because of that"
About her dream man, Jodie said;
"I want a man that is my friend. Someone who would stand by me and be there for me. It is hard to find a friend in this dangerous world we live in so I need a friend. My friend should or would be the totality of me. With your friend in your life, there would be a large room of compatibility. To sum it up, instead of saying he should be tall, dark, short, slim, fat and all, he should be my friend, one I can relate with without inhibition".
