Jim Iyke and Nadia Buari: New couple alert?

Is Jim Iyke dating Ghanaian actress, Nadia Buari? We all know his official girlfriend is the Jamaican babe, Kenturah Hamilton, who he has been dating on and off for the past five years, but his friendship with Nadia is beginning to make me curious. Yes, it's my business to be curious about things like this...lol. His publicist this week denied any romantic relationship between Jim and Nadia but we all know they always deny these things until we find out the truth. For two people who aren't dating, Jim and Nadia seem awfully close. Jim hasn't been spotted with Kenturah in a while, so they might be taking a break. Has he moved on to Nadia? Let's analyze these photos and see what we conclude..:-)

The first and second photo above is Jim and Nadia in Dubai in March for 2face Idibia's wedding. Heard they came together and left together. Peep them holding hands in the right photo. The photo on the left below is the friends at an award ceremony in Uganda in December 2012. The next photo is Jim and Nadia arriving together at his Unscripted premiere in Lagos on Thursday April 18th. The last photo is Jim and Nadia playing around in a desert somewhere in Africa. She posted the photo on her instagram page yesterday and said something about being really happy! Right now, I really can't say if they are dating...but I will find out! I'm onto you two Jim and Nadia. Lol. Cute couple!

‘I stay younger by dating younger’ - Gabrielle Union tells People mag

40 year old actress Gabrielle Union was featured in People Magazine 100 Most Beautiful Women in the World issue and when asked how stays and looks young, she replied:
"I started drinking a gallon of water a day in my mid-thirties. It changed everything from weight maintenance, to hair, skin, nails and digestion. Plus, I stay younger by dating younger. Dip into the kiddie pool, ladies! It worked for me!
Gabrielle is dating NBA star, Dwayne Wade, who is 9 years her junior. Thanks Gabby for the advise, you try...but I like my men older...or at least my age mate..:-)

It's not like I feel there's anything wrong with dating younger men, it's just a personal choice. For me, once I find out a guy is younger than I am, I find a way to make him lose my number. lol. No way! That's how I feel now sha...at 32...who knows how I will feel when I'm 40? Hehe!

Tweet of the day: from Wunmi Obe

Jaiye Aboderin was Stella Damasus' first husband and Wunmi Obe's younger brother.

Men please explain this. What does 'I'm single and dating' mean?

I want to make this a topic of discussion because as a woman I don't understand what 'I'm single and dating' means'. When asked by Toolz in The Juice interview if he was dating, Banky W said, "I'm still very much single" and then he added. "I'm single and dating."

I know a lot of guys understand what he means by that, so please explain to us ladies. I'm thinking he means he doesn't have an official girlfriend or anyone he's serious with, but has a woman/women he takes out and chops any how...lol. I don't have a girlfriend but I get my groove-on on a regular basis. Is that what single and dating means? And are some women OK with being in situations like this?

Pres. Jonathan awards $40m contract to Israeli company to monitor internet communication by Nigerians?

I put the question mark there because this is so hard to believe. President Jonathan wouldn't dare do this, would he? Below is the report from Premium Times

Here is a very important information for the 47 million Nigerian Internet users. Big Brother, in the form of the Jonathan administration, is watching you, and your communication is no longer safe.
It is one of the most far-reaching policies ever designed in Nigeria’s history to invade the privacy of citizens.
The Jonathan administration secretly, and in open violation of lawful contracting procedures, has awarded an Israeli firm, Elbit Systems, with headquarters in Haifa, a $40million contract to help it spy on citizens’ computers and Internet communications under the guise of intelligence gathering and national security.
