 Stephanie Okereke said to newsmen after her wedding last Saturday to Linus Idahosa:
 I’ve always dreamt of a fairytale wedding, especially as a child growing up. I’ve always imagined a fairytale wedding with my prince charming in a castle on an Island. And thank God that my husband finally made that possible inside this 16th century castle in Cernay, Paris, France.
It’s a beautiful feeling to be in love and be with the one person you wish to spend the rest of your life with. It was a fairytale dream come true. 
May all our dreams come true!

D'banj and Don Jazzy's feud make news on US biggest hip hop site

 
D'banj accused of credit card fraud ke? Eleyi le o! Allhiphop.com is one of the biggest hip hop news site in the US. Here's what they wrote about D'banj and his break up with Don Jazzy:
Ever since Kanye West signed African artists, D’banj and Don Jazzy, to his G.O.O.D Music label, the former friends and business partners have been at odds with one another.
In a recent interview, D’banj opened up about the ongoing feud between him and Don Jazzy, and mentioned that he would never cheat Don Jazzy knowing that JJC (of JJC and the 419 Squad) had cheated Don Jazzy in the past.
Well, JJC has caught wind of D’banj’s interview and is alleging that D’banj has committed credit card fraud, as well as talking about D’banj’s “419″ past and his escape from the police as the inspiration for his “Mobolowo won” video.
This JJC is an alakoba sha...lol

In a related development, Boko Haram has not only claimed responsibility for the Abuja and Kaduna bombings, they have also explained why they carried out the attacks.
