Harrysong opens up about when he hit the lowest ebb of his life, and meeting Kcee

Speaking with Sun, singer Harrysong opened up about how he went from being a street boy doing music with a band at the National Stadium to becoming a star, how he almost gave up on music after he hit the lowest ebb of his life, how met KCee, and eventually became a part of KCee's team.
"KC is like a big brother to me; he is a friend. We met at National Stadium when I was performing nine years ago. I was performing as a band boy back then. They used to come and watch me. They would encourage me and even give me money because I was still on the streets. Since then we’ve been friends. When the break up happened we started working together; it’s a privilege for me."

Reader's mail: How I was brutally beaten and raped

A reader just sent me this mail... so very touching. The names and place where this happened does not represent anyone you may know, it's been edited to protect the sender's identity.
Hello Amaka, I read a case of a victim on your blog and it just brought back memories of how I was brutally raped years ago. Let me share my story with you.

I had just turned 18 and still waiting for admission into the university, I travelled out of town with my friends for a modelling casting, it was late and we couldn't return that night. My friends and I didn't have enough money on us to pay for a hotel room to stay, and besides, we were told the casting had been moved forward to the next day so we had to stay till the next day. (sorry I will be economical with some details, because I'm afraid people close to me will guess am the one)

And with little money on us, my friend and I had to decide if we should travel back to Akure that night or find a place to stay for the night in Lagos. Before I knew it, Bimpe started chatting up a girl called Uju who she claimed she knows. They both came to me and said we can spend the night at Uju's house, I was skeptical at first but then I thought to myself that it was only a well meaning offer. Little did I know I was in for the nightmare of a lifetime....

Popular female talking drummer, Ara, whose marriage to her ex hubby, Olalekan Saliu (HERE) was annulled after she found out he was still legally married to someone else before marrying her has said she wouldn't mind marrying a younger man. She told Punch:
"When I meet the right person and fall in love, I will consider marriage. I really want to fall in love again. I don’t believe in marriage just for its sake. If a younger guy comes up to me, I don’t mind dating the person. I don’t mind marrying somebody who I am older than. I have spoken to a couple of people and they don’t see anything wrong with it. If the person has a mature mind and is committed, then it is not a big deal."

Its another beautiful Saturday morning dearies, and singer turned writer, Etcetera is firing a bullet at his colleagues who bleach their skin.

Lol. This dude is just in a class of one.

Happy reading...!

Lol! Man slices off his penis after he was jilted because he wasn't good bed

This isn't even funny but... oh dear, the things some people do due to heartbreak. 
Turns out, a man Macedonian in Kocani identified as 22-year-old Oliver Ilic sliced off his very own penis and trashed it in the bin after a girl he had been dating jilted him because he didn't satisfy her in bed. He then called emergency services when he realised he could not stop the bleeding.

Abeg, nah by force to stay with that girl? Another woman out there would have stayed with him regardless, I hear some women don't even like men who kill them in the bedroom. Hehehehehe... Over to you ladies, would you stay with a man who can't knock off you legs (literally speaking). And to the guys, would go to this extreme because of one woman? 

Baby born clutching Qur'an in his hands in Ibadan

A baby has been born clutching with Qur'an in his hand in Ibadan. The baby boy named Ismail was delivered in a church at Oniyanrin, Ibadan in September due to lack of funds to pay for hospital bills. The boy's parents, Semiu and Jelilah were not practising any faith before the birth of their son who arrived with a mini Qur’an containing all the 114 chapters in the holy book. Tribune  reports that a renowned Islamic preacher based in Ibadan, named, Dr Dawood Amoo, said:
"The woman, who took the delivery, thought it was one of the devilish drugs used by the mother to terminate the pregnancy, hence she threw it in the dustbin," he explained.
"Following his restlessness, a local cleric advised them to go and bring what they took from the baby which later turned out to be a copy of the mini Qur’an. "They were all afraid to touch it until I got there and I had to remove the remaining thread on the object and to my surprise, it was a beautifully- designed pocket-size complete noble Qur’an, he stated.
Don't know if I believe stuff like this, but you can continue to read more and please, share your thoughts. ...

First Lady, Patience Jonathan resigns as Permanent Secretary in Bayelsa

Dame Patience Jonathan has resigned her appointment as Permanent Secretary in the Bayelsa State Civil Service.

She reportedly relingquised her appointment voluntarily. She was made a Permanent Secretary in the state's Ministry of Education in July 2012 amidst public outcry from Bayelsans who said her appointment had a political undertone. Governor Seriaka Dickson was accused of politicising the state civil service. Now, people are saying Mrs. Jonathan resigned because she fell out with Gov. Dickson because she has refused to support his 2nd term bid. 

They say she favours the Special Assistant to the President on Domestic matters, Mr. Waripamowei Dudafa as the next governor of Bayelsa, Punch reports. So she resigned in order to push her candidate without feeling morally wrong. Lol.
A source told Punch on condition of anonymity,
 "The whole thing is political. It appears Madam (the President’s wife) is not happy with the governor. With her resignation, the battle line has been drawn...
