Linda at Champagne Conversation Event

Ok, this is me yesterday evening at the Champagne Conversation event that took place at the poolside of Eko Hotel. I had a great time. Only, mission not accomplished...same faces, no new know

Hope you guys like my outfit. I don't do skirts...haven't worn one in years, but decided to try it out for this occasion. Was going for the 'mature look'. Think I pulled it off? But common, you gotta admit, I'm stepping up my game! lol. If only I can stay away from black!
Anyway, I'm off to Enugu in a few hours for my TV Reality Show judging gig. Not going with my laptop so there will be no blogging till I get back on Wednesday. But comments will be uploaded. (via my phone). So enjoy all the other fabulous blogs while I'm gone. Don't miss me too much...*wink*

Tanzanian women vs Nigerian women.

Tanzanian Model
I told y'all about a recent survey that claims the most beautiful black women can be found in Nigeria. People from Tanzania totally disagreed. Well, they've sent in pics of women (beauty queens, models and regular chicks) from Tanzania to support their argument. Check them out and tell us if you agree they are more beautiful than Nigerian women.
Regular chicks
Don't take this too seriously or too personal. Let's just have fun with it...:-).

All the craziness going on in Libya

First it was Tunisia, then Egypt. Now it's Libya. The people of Libya want the leader, Muammar Gaddafi, to stand down from power after ruling for 41-years.

Let me list what's going on in that country so it's easier to digest...

*The uprising began on February 14, with protests in the city of Benghazi inspired by revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia.

*Embattled dictator Colonel Muammar Gaddafi has threatened to "burn all of Libya" if his people continue to turn against him.

*The anti-government protests in Libya have left thousands dead with security forces attacking protesters, using rocket propelled grenades, anti-aircraft guns and snipers.

*Gadhafi's supporters are reportedly conducting house-by-house searches and arrests. And according to some reports, they have even gone into hospitals to kill wounded opponents

'Kidnappers haven't invaded Lagos' Police PRO + My robbery story!

Samuel Jinadu
"There is nothing like that in Lagos. It is just a ruse. It is false alarm. Kidnapping is not the order of the day in Lagos. There maybe an attempt. I remember there was a case of one business man that they attempted to kidnap and we paraded the suspects before the press. So, it is not normal to say there's random kidnapping in Lagos. Police are up to the task. There should be no fear whatsoever. People should sleep with their two eyes closed. They should be free to move about and pursue their legitimate duties. We will continue with our stop and search and we will comb everywhere. No cause for any fear at all." New Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Samuel Jinadu

No cause for fear in Lagos? I hear you, Mr Public Relations Officer. I was almost robbed in traffic on Tuesday night, 9pm, around the Mile 2 area, on my way back from my TV show auditions. The lone robber put his hand around his belt area and asked me to wind down my car window or else... So guess what I did? I calmly put my car in reverse and drove back, slightly bashing the car behind me. As the driver of the car (a man) came out to inspect the damage...the robber disappeared. I've been robbed a few times in traffic in Lagos and decided to implement this strategy whenever I find myself in that situation. Either I slightly hit the car in front of me or the one behind, to get their attention, otherwise no one's going to come to your rescue.

Michael Neri has a message for all you 'haters' on this blog..:-)

Firstly I need to say thank The Almighty Lord for getting us out the situation we were in.
I read it all here and all the negative comments? - laughable!!!
The positives and the supportive ones- I truly appreciate with every single bone in my body................every single one that I had left because the reality: I was not left unharmed.
I came out with a fractured face...
anybody thinking this was some 'conspiracy' by ify or me truly are deserving of their lowly state in life. Bottom line-make no mistake bout it-God loves me, smiled on me released me {cos the scenario we were in was death stared in the face for 5-7days}....if it was just 3 weeks ago that I knew Him I would not be writing this right now; therefore you do NOT know me - now go back to hating. Peace! {On behalf of myself + Ify)

Soldier rapes, batters lady at graveyard

Miss Jane Adams, a 23-year-old student of the Lagos State Polytechnic (LASPOTECH) is crying for justice. She is seeking help after a soldier serving at Bonny Camp, Lagos allegedly abducted and raped her at a dreaded cemetery within the Ojo Military Cantonment in Lagos. The victim, who hails from Gboko Local Government Area of Benue State, alleged that Lance Corporal Akparuku Clever, in the night of Saturday, January 22, abducted her in his danfo bus, marked LAGOS XY 230 EKY, and forcefully took her to a graveyard inside the Ojo Military Cantonment. There, she recalled, he allegedly pulled a dagger, threatened to injure or kill her and then raped her.

It was during her intense struggle with him that she suffered a serious injury on her left eye, she said. Aside from the alleged rape, Jane also accused the soldier of other diabolical intentions, saying he attempted to insert a charmed ring inside her private part.
