On August 5, 2010 Mrs Ndi Okereke-Onyiuke was removed on as the DG of the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) by Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) over allegations of financial impropriety. She went to court to challenge her removal and demanded N3billion as damages. Well, she won. As yesterday, a Federal High Court in Lagos nullified her removal and awarded her the sum of N500 million as damages.
The rare bravery displayed by a driver of Edewor Seafood Nigeria Limited, Mr. Edosa Idahor, could be likened to incredible roles usually played by the British film character, James Bond, as Idahor drove a burning lorry for six kilometres.
The rear tyre of the lorry with registration number EDO AK 341 UJE, burst while in motion and caught fire, but the Edo State-born driver, in an attempt to salvage the vehicle from being razed completely, remained in it, trying all he could to detach its head from the container.
The alleged story was that the actor got into an argument/fight with a hawker on Wednesday May 18 at about 2pm at Aminu Kano Crescent ,Wuse 11 Abuja. It was alleged that the hawker made Jim angry after he asked the actor for a tip after showing an apparently lost Jim how to get to his destination.
But the actor has denied he was ever in a fight. His version of the story when you continue...

The Guinean Beauty, and Chambermaid, Nafissatou Diallo, who was allegedly forced to have oral sex by IMF Boss, Dominique Strauss-Kahn.
According to a law enforcement source, on 14 May 2011, shortly after midday, a 32-year-old hotel maid entered Strauss-Kahn's suite at the Sofitel New York to clean it. She alleged that Strauss-Kahn came out of his bathroom naked, ran after her, attempted to forcibly have sex with her, and forced her to perform oral sex on him. At 4:40 that afternoon, police officers removed Strauss-Kahn from Air France Flight 23 at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport, moments before takeoff for Paris.The notion that it was all a set-up meant to bring down Strauss-Kahn has spread like wildfire. They point to the CIA or rivals inside the IMF, to big American banks or financial interests threatened by Strauss-Kahn's push for more regulation, to murky schemes by some "black cabinet" working for Nicolas Sarkozy at the Elysée palace, or even to Socialist party rivals only too eager to get rid of a dangerous candidate ahead of the 2012 presidential elections.
What do you think?
That's what City People is reporting. They say that the award winning singer and producer is not only collaborating with the duke of Highlife and creator of Ziggima sound, Bright Chimezie, he is also set to collaborate with Shakira in a deal that has already been signed and sealed. We are now waiting for it to be delivered...:-)

Four members of a notorious armed robbery gang which specialized in snatching motor-bikes popularly called Okada from their owners are currently telling the police the story of their lives and their involvement in the devilish way of eking a living. Reports say the gang had operated in Ketu/ Alapere for several years without being caught. But like the age long aphorism which says, “everyday for the thief, one day for the owner”, four of them were recently rounded up after an operation where they were said to be relaxing; having shared their loot.
Beyonce talks Fela Kuti in a recent Billboard interview:
“I recorded more than 60 songs: everything I ever wanted to try, I just did it. I started off being inspired by Fela Kuti. I actually worked with the band from “Fela!” for a couple of days, just to get the feel for the soul and heart of his music; it’s so sexy, and has a great groove you get lost in. I loved his drums, all the horns, how everything was on the one. What I learned most from Fela was artistic freedom: he just felt the spirit.”Fela's music is sexy? lol. I heart Beyonce so much!

Here's a comment from a reader of this blog that caught my attention. It's from the Sophia Tchidi Chikere's post. Read it below...
I'm married, my husband is a cheater, I told him pls use condoms and he agrees. I also cheat on him...its 50/50....everyone comes back home, life goes on. All my 3kids are his....we no longer want children....he thinks I'm the best by accepting his cheating attitude. My marriage is sweet, sex perfect, we are rich. I remember last year during our holiday to yankee I caught him sleeping with a white girl in our Miami hotel when I went to drop our kids with my sister. He apologized and as usual I vexed and I forgave him...and as usual I took revenge and I slept with a waiter too. Vengeance is sweet. I'm loving my marriage peeps. He trusts me, he cant catch me. I've spoken, abuse me if u like. I'm happily married.I know someone who's doing this exact thing. He cheats on her, she cheats on him. She says she does it for the kids, that if she wasn't cheating on him too, she would have walked away from the marriage a long time ago. She said the cheating was so much, she was constantly miserable, depressed and had a lot of self-esteem issues. She felt it was her fault until one day she realized it wasn't and paid him back same way. Now she cheats every time she knows for sure that he cheated. And she said her marriage has never been sweeter or her life better.
This can't be the way to go. Or could it? What's your thoughts on this?
Left: Robert Brown. Right, Joanna, who died in the hammer attack
A British Airways pilot who battered his wife to death wanted to crash a jumbo jet full of passengers and crew the day after the frenzied attack to 'make a statement'.
Robert Brown, who was due to command a flight from Heathrow to Lagos the day after his wife's death, told a jury that he contemplated crashing the jet killing himself and everyone else on board.
The 47-year-old also said he had considered completing the journey to the Nigerian city and then hanging himself in a hotel room.

Robert de Niro spotted actress Genevieve Nnaji – star of The Mirror Boy – at NOBU 3.14 and got chatting over sashimi. I hear she’s tipped to be the next Bond girl.
De Niro always did have an eye for hot talent.

Sources tell TMZ in the late '90s Patty began to "pursue Arnold." She told friends they would have unprotected sex during the day at the house. Patty never slept overnight at the house and no one ever caught them in the act. When she became pregnant, she didn't tell Arnold he was the father. Arnold didn't learn he was the daddy until the boy was a toddler.
I think it's best to have a male house keeper, seriously, because some men have no self-control. WTH? And what's the attraction with married men? Why would you want another woman's husband to stick his thing inside you? Jeez!!!
