Wrong choice of words from a man of God

The priest at St Luke Anglican Church, Akwakuma, Owerri, Rev. Ogechi Ofurum blames women for wearing tight clothes and tempting men...

Rev Ogechi Opurum said:
“The type of skimpy clothes ladies wear nowadays is appalling. Clothes that children of 10 and 11 years wear have now become the fashion of adults of 18 years and above. Those clothes are so tight on them that every part of their body shows, thereby provoking men to force themselves on them."
Is he justifying rape? There are other ways he could have made his point. Rape is a sadistic act and there's absolutely no excuse for it.

K-Solo's confession

The singer/producer's first solo album will drop on the 1st of February 2013 and will be available for download on LIB. He just released a single called confessions and wrote something he wanted me to share with you all. See it below...
I will like to talk about the issue that made me a devil to some fans and friends. There's really not much to say, but I'm a human being, so I am entitled to have my own emotions and issues. But people should learn to mind their business. Bankers and other professionals go for divorce, but you will never see it on the pages of the newspapers. 
And they also marry, but men should marry a woman who will aide greatness and success to their career. Like you  all know that have maintained a cool key until the strange woman arrived in my world and tried all she could physically and spiritually to collapse my empire.
 It gets more interesting. Continue...

Knorr Taste Quest Episode 2 - The Cat Fish Struggle

It was really a test of skills as the Knorr Taste Quest top 12 contestants started their first task. The secret ingredients for the task were Cat Fish (all live), Cocoyam and Carrot, and they all had to use these ingredients to make a starter and main dish. It was so hilarious watching the contestants trying to kill their fish, and it just made me realize that it’s not easy to kill cat fish o! Most times you just point and they kill it for you, but if you were to kill it yourself how would you do it. Another thing that got me thinking from the show is the COCOYAM!! 

'How Don Jazzy changed my life' - T.O.C

Below is a mail I got from 19 year old Tochi Oyeoku
My name is Tochy Oyeoku (TOC). am an upcoming singer student in Bells University. When I left my house for EME album launch party at club deuces couple of months back, I didn't know I was going to meet my break through. I met Don Jazzy and we spoke for a bit and he asked me to give him a call so we can continue our discussion some other time. His private number was like a huge asset for me, I crammed it immediately and saved it on my two phones, I kept on calling and sending text messages, so sad no one was picking, no text was replied either. At a stage I lost all hope and continued my Under G striving.

'Do not insult our President again', Daniel Wilson writes

Below is what the Ragamuffin star wrote on his Facebook page... 
President Goodluck Jonathan is Commander in Chief of the armed forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, beyond his persona; he is the symbol of the Nigerian state. He is the embodiment of all our yearnings and aspirations.
I believe that whatever your quarrel is with our president's speech pattern, however disagreeable you find his policies, to whatever extent you feel aggrieved by his leadership, and however incompetent you find his entourage, see to it that you articulate your sentiments and present your argument with civility and respect, and do so with the passion of someone whose love of country is greater than the resentment of its president.
And dare to go the second mile by letting that same love of our country give you the moral fortitude to defend the image of our president against those who wish to tarnish it more than correct his shortcomings, even if you can't defend his policies. And if you find this hard to do, remember that it is only hard because it is the right thing to do.

Kim and Khloe Kardashian slam their father's widow

According to Robert Kardashian's widow, Kim K's mum, Kris Jenner, was once a bad mother. Ellen Kardashian told tabloids that she was in possession of a diary belonging to Rob Snr which showed that Kris beat and kicked Kim when she was a child and frequently took her anger out on her daughters. Ellen shared the diary, which was written by Rob Kardashian between 1988-90, with In Touch Weekly this week:
According to the journals, Jenner would hide out in her bedroom for days at a time to sleep off the effects of hard partying and avoiding her young children. In one entry, dated September 1989, Robert alleges his daughters called him crying numerous times after their mother forgot to pick them up from school because she had left for places like Mexico or Palm Springs with her much younger alleged lover, Todd Waterman. “The whole time she was gone she NEVER asked to talk with her kids,” Rob wrote.
After seeing the report, Kim and Khloe slammed their step mum. See their tweets after the cut...
