“The Givers of Most of The Corruption in Africa Are From Outside Africa” ....... Ex President Olusegun Obasanjo

"There is no part of the world where corruption is absolutely eliminated. But [in other countries] that corruption has not been a way of life. When you are found, you are dealt with. And that's what we need."

• He has not visited Borno state, the center of Boko Haram attacks, because the airport there was not functional at the time he planned to visit. "And we did not want to land somewhere and fly in to Maiduguri with a helicopter for obvious reasons."
[Why is the airport not functioning? Why hasn’t it been fixed? And are there no ROADS into Borno State?]

D’banj Lands The Cover Of The Observer Magazine UK


Nigerian musician D’banj is on the cover of UK’s ‘The Observer’. The Observer is The Guardian Newspaper’s (UK) style supplement (Kinda like Thisday’s Sunday ‘Style Magazine’). The excited star shared it on Twitter.

In the interview, the superstar talked about the usual…….. G.O.O.D Music, Kanye West,breaking into the U.K/international music scene and the usual stuff.

At this point I think Susan Peters did a good thing by starting the rumour that he proposed to Genevieve Nnaji. We need to hear other things apart from the Kanye West, GOOD music stuff. Dude is becoming very predictable in his interviews and it is actually becoming…… oh well! *shrugs*.

D’banj Proposes To Genevieve Nnaji?


Screen Shot Credit: Miss Petite

  This has got to be the gist of the day….unfortunately it was a prank.
Nollywood actress Susan Peters pulled a prank on us when she tweeted that Nigerian superstar D’banj proposed to Nollywood actress Genevieve Nnaji in the presence of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.

Apparently it was a prank. Susan admitted that she played an April fool on us in June.
Nice one Susan…I almost fell for it, but what of beautiful Ghanaian actress Nadia Buari. I thought people were speculating that she is dating D’banj right now (a rumour that was fuelled by Dbanj’s visit to the set of one of her movies).

 I see them topping Africa’s power couple list, if they ever get married.
Oh well!! Let’s wait and see.

Nigerian Man Allegedly Killed And Thrown From 5th Floor In Bangkok (Video)



The act was allegedly carried out by some policemen in Bangkok.

Read a mail that was sent to Nations Newspaper.....

A 26 year old Kelechi Duru from Imo state was brutally thrown out of the window by a Thai police officer where he lives in Bangkok on the 4th of June 2012.

However, the embassy of Nigeria here in Thailand is aware of this ugly incident and they visited the scene of the incident but nothing has been done to bring the culprit to book.
This is the 4th person who has been killed in a similar circumstance yet Nigeria did not do anything, to our dismay the following day it was announced by Thai media that Kelechi committed suicide.
The name of this police officer is warra****.
The video footage and testimony from his Thai neighbors showed that the boy was intentionally killed. (youtube.com/dumuster) the most annoying part of the whole thing is that all his vital organs were removed even before he died.
I wish to once more remind you that there are well over 7000 Thai citizens living in Nigeria yet nothing happens to them.
