The governor of central bank of Nigeria Lamido Sanusi just made the list of Time magazine's most influential people.

Breaking News: Veteran Actor Ashley Nwosu Is Dead

Nollywood actor Ashley Nwosu 'The Baron' (that is the nickname I gave him after watching one of his movies) is dead. The actor who has been battling with an undisclosed liver ailment for sometime, died this morning in a military hospital. He was one of my best actors. His delivery in most movies was flawless. My favorite line from the actor was 'everything and everyone has a price'. He said this in a film he acted alongside Ramsey Nouah and Chioma Chuckwuka. I Can't remember the movie title now, but that was the film that made me nickname him 'The Baron'. May his soul rest in peace. Source........dimkokokustella

Heeeyaa!!!everybody. Hope you had an amazing week?I am so sorry I have not posted the latest gist, but I am going to do a quick rundown on stuff that went down this week. And The General Wept....... Buhari while addressing newsmen this week broke down in tears. It seems the alliance between himself and Ribadu did not scale through after all. I was wondering how that will ever be possible. Na wah oooh!!! Nigerian Diplomat Disgraced In Switzerland............. Swizz Police threw out a Nigerian diplomat Mr Egbide and his family on monday morning over rent indebtedness. It is alleged that before they were ejected, electricity supply to their residence was cut off. They were also cut off from their national insurance scheme. According to Mrs Egbide , they were unable to pay their rent because her husband has not been payed for two years by the Labour Ministry. People Mags Most Beautiful woman....... Jennifer lopez was named People magazine's most beautiful woman. I think it is a well deserved honour if you ask me.*rolls eyes* I know some of you might disagree. U.K Gang Members Sentenced To Life imprisonment For Killing A Nigerian Girl..................... Two gang members were sentenced to life imprisonment for killing a 16 year old Nigerian girl Agnes Sina-Inakoju. Agnes who had hopes of schooling in Oxford University became the victim of "gang warfare" when she was blasted in the neck by Leon Dunkley after she went to buy Pizza. Dunkley, 22, and Mohammed Smoured, 21, both members of the London fields gang, cycled up, before Dunkley, without looking who he was aiming at, pulled out the gun and fired. The shooting which was captured on CCTV showed the violent and escalating clash between youths from different parts of Hackney, east London. elDee's 'Top Talent' Has Something For You......... Are you unsigned and you want to take your music to the next level? Well elDee is giving you a chance through an online contest 'Top Talent' for unsigned Nigerian artists to showcase their talent and possibly get a record deal. It is free and simple. Just send one mp3 song to elDee and his team of A & Rs will choose from the entries and come up with their top ten songs which will be posted on a website for the public to choose the top 3. The top 3 will be further scrutinized by elDee and his team. The top 3 songs with the highest number of online votes will be selected on May 6, 2011 and the eventual winner will be announced on May 13, 2011. NOTE that if you send more than one song, a collabo (that is a song with 2 or more people) or a song in which you are not the artist who performed on the recording, you will be disqualified. You will also be disqualified if you are signed to a record label. The eventual winner will be featured on elDee's upcoming album 'Is It Your Money Vol. 2". Deadline for the submission of entries is April 22, 2011 at 2:00 EST. The links for listening and voting will be provided on elDee's Facebook Fanpage. Na wah oohh!!! 13 year old boy denied bail........ It is being alleged that a 13 year old boy has been denied bail by a chief magistrate in Owerri for allegedly attempting to 'kill' former President Obasanjo and the Governor of Imo State, Ikedi Ohakim on 31 March by stoning them with sachets of Pure water. He was arrested alongside 18 other people. While I do not in any way encourage kids to be disrespectful to their elders, I am wondering if the action of the magistrate is both legally and morally right because this boy in question is a minor. Stephanie Okereke Follows In Jay Z's Footsteps...... Nollywood actress Stephanie Okereke has some amazing projects in the works. She is working on a new perfume, her own lifestyle website (just like jay Z's. Life + Style which I posted some weeks back here) and a new movie 'Dry'. I hear the story line is about the 'VVF' scourge which is close to her heart.When this happens she will be the first actress to have both a lifestyle website and her own perfume. And oh! She is also preparing for her upcoming nuptials. She must be really busy now.So happy for her.

"I Never Got To Know My Dad...Up Till Now I Don't Know If He Is Dead".....Ramsey Nouah


Ramsey Nouah is one of the leading actors in Nollywood  with a career spanning over two decades. In this interview he talks about how he started his career, marriage, his definition of style, his parents, the real state of his marriage and sundry issues........
You have been in the industry for the past two decades; does it not call for celebration?Well, I didn’t do a major celebration because basically I didn’t want the attraction in the sense that I didn’t want to create any buzz around it.
How was it when you started?
 It wasn’t a feasible industry in Nigeria then; we were only shooting soap operas on national television. The end of 1993 came with home videos when Kenneth Nnebue shot Living in Bondage and it was successful. By 1994, everybody was thinking of going into home video and being one of the popular faces already on TV then, it was easy for me.
Did your parents really approve your going into the movie industry?
My mum is a very liberal woman. I became very independent even at a tender age and she gave me a free hand. She was not really concerned about
