This week's demonstration in Egypt is the largest seen in decades. The demonstrators are demanding the ouster of the country's longtime autocratic president, Hosni Mubarak.

Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Chairman, Attahiru Jega, two days ago Wednesday Jan 26 requested an additional N6.6 billion to complete voter registration, in disregard of the warning issued by the National Assembly (NASS) November last year for him not come back for more funds.
The INEC already got N87 billion for the entire election process, including voter registration.
Jega said that the fresh funds would address four pressing challenges: personnel (two), transportation, and consummables. He also said the INEC registered only 28.5 million voters by January 22 out of the estimated 65, 783,046 million.

Author Terry McMillan took to Twitter to discuss how disgusted she is with the way Jada and Will are raising Jaden and Willow Smith.
Her tweets below...
The Smith children already act like child stars. There’s an arrogance in their demeanor and behavior. I find it incredibly sad. It feels like the Smith children are being pimped and exploited. Or, they’re already hungry for fame. What about 4th grade?
More when you continue...

“What can I say? She’s the love of my life. She is amazing. She is gorgeous. She is black. She is beautiful. She is my friend. She is a colleague. She cooks. She cleans. She’s God fearing. She’s somebody you want to meet anyday, anytime.” Bryan Okwara to Bola Akinboade of City People (this week) when asked if he was in a sizzling romance with top model, Bunmi Ademokoya.

Oprah Winfrey revealed on her show yesterday about finding out this past Thanksgiving that when she was 9 years old her mother had gotten pregnant, hid the pregnancy and secretly put the baby up for adoption...
Oprah's sister discovered Vernita Winfrey was her birth mother in 2007 and began reaching out to her. Vernita rejected Patricia's requests to unite. She still does.
Eventually an email from Patricia made its way past the hundreds of other "I'm your long lost relative letters" Oprah receives each week and after realizing Patricia had known the truth since 2007 and hadn't sold her out to the tabloids, Oprah decided she wanted to meet this woman whether she turned out to be her sister or not.

Wishing them all the best!
|Stephanie and Linus|
"There is no iota of truth in that report. I saw it and my future parents in law live in Lagos and they read it too and my mum in law is in shock. She doesnt understand why anyone would write such lies concerning them. I told her 'welcome to the entertainment world'. My in-laws and I are really close and they are really happy about my relationship with their son. My relationship with Linus is solid and these cheap lies will not affect us. It was even faith my sister in law who alerted me that such a story was written. The Idahosas are like my second family and they love me like their daughter. God will expose whoever is behind this that's all I know. (Our wedding) isn't being delayed. We are putting things in place and it will happen very soon by Gods Grace. Faith my darling sisterin law will be my maid of honour." Stephanie Okereke to Stella Dimoko Korkus of Encomium
