Floyd Mayweather says half-naked women deserve to be disrespected

Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather says women should dress the way they want to be treated and if she shows half of her body, then she deserves to be disrespected. He shared his thoughts on the matter on his instagram page. I know a lot of men and some women will agree with him but I think it's silly. Your respect for anyone shouldn't depend on their attire...

Floyd is always surrounded by scantily dressed groupies, is he saying he mistreats them? I think women should cover up as much as they can and leave some things to the imagination, but we are not all the same and some like to show off skin. It doesn't mean they deserve to be disrespected based on that alone. But who agrees with him?

Photo: Tortured boy rescued from kidnappers’ den in Ogun state

A young boy (pictured left) was recused from a house in Ota, Ogun state just as he was about to be killed for ritual. Below is the full story from Punch

Fate smiled on an unidentified young boy hawking on Alhaji Jamiu Sulaimon Street in Itele, Ota area of Ogun State on Tuesday evening as he was rescued from kidnappers in the area, just as he was about to be killed.
No 3, Alhaji Jamiu Sulaimon, where the boy was rescued is unarguably one of the most beautiful houses on the street but no one could have imagined the horror discovered behind its high walls.

Funny skit! Romeo & Juliet Featuring Basketmouth & Buchi

There's now a petition for Jay Z and Beyonce to take better care of daughter's hair

This is not cool. A petition has been launched on change.org asking Beyonce and Jay Z to comb their daughter Blue Ivy's hair...and so far it's gotten over 4,000 signatures.. 

The petition was started by a woman named Jasmine Toliver, and under her petition she wrote;
'As a woman who understands the importance of hair care, it's disturbing to watch a child suffering from the lack of hair moisture. The parents of Blue Ivy, Sean Carter aka Jay Z and Beyonce have failed at numerous attempts of doing Blue Ivy's hair. This matter has escalated to the child developing matted dreads and lint balls. Please let's get the word out to properly care for Blue Ivy hair.'
Not liking or criticizing Blue Ivy's hair is one thing, but putting up a petition on change.org to me is crossing the line. You can't tell a mother what to do or not to do with her own daughter's hair. One person even wrote "cruelty to children has to stop!" Cruelty? Hmmmm

Nigerian woman smuggled to the UK to work as sex slave & forced to undergo voodoo to prevent her from running away

3 members of an international prostitution ring that smuggled a Nigerian woman into the UK to work as a sex slave under the threat of a voodoo curse faced jail yesterday June 13, UK Daily Mail reports
The gang conned the innocent 23-year-old into flying to Heathrow Airport on a bogus passport with the promise of education, a job and a new home.
Before leaving Nigeria, she was raped and forced to go through a black magic ‘juju’ death ritual to prevent her running away.
But when the woman arrived in London, her employment failed to materialize. Instead, she was told she was destined to work as a sex slave in Italy, a court heard.

'He is a responsible married man" How valid is this statement?

Someone sent me this as a topic to discuss on LIB. Find below and share your thoughts
Some people believe that getting married bestows a certain degree of responsibility on a man which makes them appear responsible in the eyes of others while some others do not believe in all that. They believe most married men are far from the word, Responsible.
Does marriage really bestow a certain degree of responsibility? Are all married people to be taken as responsible citizens?
Hmmm...but some Lekki wives and husbands sha! #lipsealed. Lol. Thoughts?

We entertainers are prostitutes to telecoms giants - Singer Etcetera writes

Singer turned writer Etcetera now comes for his colleagues who collect telecoms endorsement deals without caring about what he calls 'poor' services being rendered by the companies to its subscribers who are also fans of the celebs. Oh please, like he wouldn't collect if called...lol. Read below...
It all started around 2000 AD, just right after the millennium bug had been crushed. A new era had just begun. With it came the beginning of what is known today as corporate prostitution. The telcos had just landed with their base stations with billions of dollars to spend. At a time when Plantashun Boiz ruled the 36 states and the federal capital territory was left for Age Beeka and his angel Angelica. When the Remedies was Hip hop and the hustle was done with pure zeal and autotune and Styl-plus were still in their mothers’ wombs. Now just a little more than a decade after, in the year 2014, the telcos and their billions have taken over. The whoring has finally begun. With the telcos unashamedly fighting over entertainers’ right before our very eyes, Saka will easily take home the award for the entertainment prostitute of the year. Having slept with two competing brands without any remorse, musically, Saka’s action is called a portamento. But do we expect Saka to be wary of jumping from one telco’s bed to another knowing that there are no sexually transmitted diseases involved in the act?
