Dear LIB readers: How do I leave one brother for another?

From a female LIB reader
This is not a made up story believe me. For over two years I was constantly praying to meet my dream man and it finally happened but it happened in the most bizarre manner. I met this really nice looking dude at shoprite Lagos about a month ago and I really liked him and was considering dating him but then he invited him to his friend's child naming ceremony just last week and I met his older brother. His older brother is my dream man. Since I met him I haven't been able to stop thinking about him. The worst or best part is that he is single and was even telling me to hook him with any single female friend of mine. How do I tell this guy I am interested in him when he already thinks I'm his younger brother's girlfriend? I'm not! I've only been out a few times with his brother and only kissed him twice, no sex, no intimacy, none of that stuff but I don't know what his brother has told him about me.
Please I need your candid advise, I want this guy so bad but how do I get him? And who should I open up to first about how I feel, my friend or his brother?

President Jonathan demands retraction of demeaning report

This is a State House press release
The mischievous lead report in the Peoples Daily newspaper today that President Goodluck Jonathan sought to visit former President Ibrahim Babangida in Minna to show him “the spirit of comradeship” during Ramadan is completely untrue.
Although President Jonathan participates in the Ramadan fast every year in solidarity with Nigerians of the Islamic faith, he has never as Vice President or President of the country visited the residence of any individual to break his fast.
Rather, it has been the President’s custom to regularly invite Moslems from all strata of society to break their fast with him at the Presidential Villa during the month of Ramadan.

'The principle of mumuism as practiced in mumu kingdom' - Lágbájá

This is a must read article written by Afrobeat musician, Lágbájá, in response to an article written by Okey Ndibe. You will find Mr Ndibe's article after the cut but first read this one from masked one...
Dear Okey Ndibe: Thank you for sounding the alarm in a way that should make us reflect deeper. Mumu is not a condition I proudly proclaim. It was with a heavy heart that I came to this shocking realization that we are indeed a country of mumus. Harsh as it might sound, no other explanation would suffice. It is apparent that the “leaders” know that they would always get away with whatever incredible schemes they concoct because, amongst other reasons,
(a) the mumu people they “lead” are no different from their mumu “leaders” in character
(b) the mumu people are gullible, superstitious and naive
(c) there are no consequences for criminal acts if you belong to the right group
(d) these mumus never demand accountability from their “leaders”
(e) the mumus expect their rulers to loot or would otherwise consider them foolish
