Ini Edo denies getting N600m from Gov Akpabio to build film school

“As a rule, I don’t reply every talk or report about me, but these recent ones are crazy and baseless. I don’t know where they got their information that my state governor offered me N600m to build an art or film academy in Uyo.This is just another work of mischief makers, who keep troubling celebrities. To put the records straight, my state governor has not offered me such money to build a film academy in Uyo as was falsely reported." - Ini Edo Ehiagwina

Uche Iwuji and hubby; how they met

Below is what the newly married actress told Nollywood Infotainment in an interview shortly before her wedding...
While in London, one of my friends whom I hold in high esteem came for my birthday celebration and told me about one of her clients that is still single who would like to meet me. She knows him well as he has been a long standing client of hers.
Initially, I told her I was not interested in meeting anybody, but she insisted and told me this guy was a good person but that it will be nice for me to speak with him and know if he is my kind of person. She went further to say that he’s a kind, selfless God fearing man, and being that she’s someone I trust her judgement of people I agreed for him to call me, from there we got talking and the rest is history.
Honestly, I can’t thank God enough because he’s given me my friend, husband, brother, everything that I’ve ever asked for in a man and more.
And Juwon Lawal doesn't care about the rumours...continue...

Say what, Slim The Mobster???

 
Not everyone will understand this, but let me try. Slim the Mobster is a rapper who used to be signed to Dr. Dre's Aftermath Records. Some days ago, Slim and former label mate 50 cent got into a fight on Twitter and Slim tweeted what you see above.

Chris lighty and 50 cent (pictured above) were good friends and Chris once managed 50cent. The music executive was found dead on August 30, 2012 in his apartment from a self-inflicted gun shot wound. There ware reports that Chris had been involved in an argument with his ex-wife not too long before he killed himself. Makes sense? At least, I tried! Hehe!
