PHOTO: Burna Boy Strips & Performs On Stage In His Underpants at the 2013 Fela Celebration (Felabration)
Burna Boy thrilled his audience at the New Afrika
Shrine in Lagos early morning Monday, Oct. 21,
when he performed in his underwear like the late
Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.
It was the close of “Felabration,” an annual event
paying homage to the Nigerian-born singer, afrobeat
legend Fela who died in 1997.
Apparently displeased with the attention Nicki
Minaj’s topless selfies were getting, Afrocandy
moved to post similar pictures of her boobies on
The soft-porn actress posted a pic of herself
with the same star-shaped nipple covers as
Nicki, and added the comment.
“Nicki Minaj bares her boóbs in new photo? Na
Today? I’ve been there, done that and mine are all
natural, no Surgery, no Silicón, they all mine
and if you wanna see them without the Stars,
go get a copy of my New Movie “Destructive
Instinct” and enjoy your eyes…so it’s not a
biggy ok !!”
The photo below was reportedly taken @ the event where Rap Diva and Fashion Designer Sasha was unveiled as “Ekiti State’s Cultural Ambassador”…..
Ace footballer Obafemi Martins has welcomed his
third child from his third baby mama. Abigail
Barwuah, the older sister of Italian footballer Mario
Balotelli gave birth to a baby boy sometime last week in Italy.
25 year old Abigail, who has been dating Obafemi
since 2012, lost the first pregnancy in December 2012
but got pregnant again almost
The never-before-married Obafemi has a daughter
with an African chick he dated in Italy many years
ago, a 3 and a half year old son with a
white chick he dated while playing in the UK and
now a son with Abigail. Could this be the rise of “2Face 2.0″….ijs.
Congrats to Abigail and Obafemi!
Former Flying Eagles midfielder Rabiu Ibrahim
collapsed on the field and had to be rushed to
KickOff reports that the Kilmarnock FC
midfielder collapsed after a collision with Ross
County’s Ivan Sproule in the 35th minute, and
was subsequently stretchered off the pitch and
rushed to a nearby hospital.
Kilmarnock went on to record their first win of
the season as Scottish international striker Kris
Boyd and Jackson Irvine scored in either half to
seal the win for the hosts.
After enduring torrid spells at Sporting Lisbon,
PSV Eindhoven and Celtic, Ibrahim’s career has
taken an upward trajectory since joining the
modest club, as has featured in all the clubs ten
League games played so far this season.
Kilmarnock are placed second from bottom in
the 12-team Scottish Premiership.
It seemed highly inappropriate to post this photo yesterday (y’all know why)Newaize, Cossy, Bassey of BBATheChase and Denrele Edun
were all at Elegushi beach last sunday where this photo was reportedly taken. Denrele looks so love struck by those massive boobs. Wtf!!
Word on the street and blogosphere is that this is not the first time Kola Aluko and Naomi Campbell have been seen together in public.
Dailymail featured them yesterday and even admitted it
looked like they had a good time together in Paris.
Since Naomi Campbell broke up with her Billionaire
boyfriend, she has not really been making public appearances as often as she used to….ijs.

Na wa o. Beautiful Cover Photo Sha.
Laff wan kill me die (Lwkmd)….. I am so curious about the criteria used to crown the duo, that is assuming they didn’t just decide to snap a photo proclaiming themselves “Mr and Miss 2go”…..ijs. What do you think?
In an attempt to track down details of the new deal Iyanya signed with Solo Phone Nigeria, I stumbled across this photos and story (from MetroNaija) that I just couldn’t pass up posting. “It was a beautiful performance from the sensational
artiste, Iyanya and his dancers but the end was so hilarious when the Lagos State Deputy
Governor, Orelope Adefulire fired iyanya’s female
Deputy Governor: I guess you are professional
Iyanya’s Dancers: Yes ma!
Deputy Governor: If you must entertain without
pants on, certainly not in a gathering like this. Just
see how you are disgracing and degrading
womanhood. Don’t try it again.
Iyanya’s Dancers: Yes ma!”
Africa’s child ambassador, eleven year old Zuriel
Oduwole, the Nigerian girl making the global case
for educating the continents Girl Child and in the
process, re-branding Africa, has been appointed an
ambassador by Tanzania’s First Lady. Zuriel was in
the country last week – which was her second
county stop on her East African leg to launch the
acclaimed “Dream Up, Speak Up, Stand Up” project
aimed at inspiring/encouraging African girls.
On October 11th, Zuriel was in Dar Es Salaam to attend the United Nations UNFPA event which
focused on reducing the incidence of child marriage
After speaking at the event, she was formally
invited to the office of the first lady Mrs Selma
Kikwete (Zuriel pictured with the first lady above).
Mrs Kikwete commended Zuriel for her leadership at
such a young age, she also commended her for
bringing issues of girl’s education to several African
leaders, then the first lady formally appointed Zuriel
an ambassador for the largest foundation focused
on gender issue – Wanawake na Maendeleo
Foundation (WAMA) of which she’s the founding
Zuriel was presented with an intricate 3 foot statue
of unity, the same type presented to the US
president, to symbolize the effect of Zuriel’s in the
lives of Africa’s young women.#BeInspired.
Here’s what the buxom beauty and mother of 3 (or is it 4; WTH, I can’t seem to remember) had to say. True Talk?
EbonyLife TV and Disney have concluded a deal
to give ABC’s hit series Desperate
Housewives to an African adaptation which will
be shot in Lagos Nigeria. According to
EbonyLive, the series will star a number of pan-
African actors and is expected to premiere some
time in 2014.
Check out the Official statement from EbonyLife
It’s getting more and more exciting on Africa’s
First Global Entertainment Network! Disney Is
Taking ‘Desperate Housewives’ To Lagos In
Deal with Nigeria-Based EbonyLife TV!
Ben Pyne, president of global distribution at
Disney, announced at the just concluded
MIPCOM 2013 (the international TV and
entertainment market held in Cannes once
every year; where content is introduced for co-
producing, buying, selling, financing and
distributing). He revealed that an “African
version” of Desperate Housewives – the once
comedy/drama series created by Marc Cherry,
and broadcast by ABC from 2004 until 2012 –
is currently in development, for a summer
2014 debut. The co-production deal is with
Nigeria-based EbonyLife TV – a multi-platform
broadcaster, and subsidiary of Media and
Entertainment City Africa (MEC Africa) in Cross
River State, Nigeria. Desperate Housewives – the “African version”
will feature a pan-African cast, and will be set
in Lagos, Nigeria, where it will also be shot,
with a summer 2014 debut date set, airing in
44 countries within the continent. The original
ABC TV series followed the dramatic lives of a
group of women, over a 13-year period, and 8
seasons, as seen through the eyes of a dead
neighbor who committed suicide in the very
“We are going to make it relevant, number
one, by using local talent — talent that our
viewers will know and love; two, we are going
to work with local stylists, local fashion
designers, local interior designers, making it
wholly immersed in African culture, fashion
and music.” said Mo Abudu, CEO and
Executive Chairman, EbonyLife TV. “We are
going to give the stories an African flavor. We
will localize it, because there’s nothing that
the West has that Africa doesn’t have: we
love, we fight, we kiss, we make up. We like
all the good things in life. There’s good and
there’s evil globally. So all those human
interests, those things that appeal to you,
believe me, appeal to us also. The series
spoke universally to women and to men,
about relationships, marriage and bringing up
children. All those stories are there. And
Africans are the original storytellers. Your
grandparents would sit you down at night and
tell you tales. We love a good story.”
Well then, the obvious question here is, what
actresses from the continent will make up the
ensemble cast in the Nigeria-set version of
Desperate Housewives? Nollywood talents
should definitely get some looks here…

Chairman of the Nigeria Leadership Summit 2013
which has been announced to be held on 11th and
12th of December 2013, at the prestigious
Intercontinental Hotel in Victoria Island Lagos.
Chief Anyaoku who is one of Nigeria’s most
respected Statesmen is expected to lead the
discussions and deliberations on the future of youth,
development and empowerment in Nigeria.
This year’s Summit is focused on Job creation and
its theme is “LETS GET TO WORK”.
The choice of Chief Anyaoku is therefore most
appropriate as he is one Nigerian whose reputation
for National Development and youth Empowerment
is without question. Chief Anyaoku’s recognition is
truly global having received the highest national
civilian honours of several Nations including but not
limited to Cameroon, Lesotho, Madagascar,
Namibia, Republic of South Africa and Trinidad &
Tobago’s Trinity Cross (TC) as well as one of the
highest honours in Britain the Grand Cross of the

and recognition for outstanding service to humanity
from over 55 universities, institutions and
organizations all over the World. He is currently,
Chairman, Presidential Advisory Council on
International Relations in Nigeria.
The Nigeria Leadership Summit 2012 was termed by
the media as one of the most successful
conferences ever held in the history of Nigeria. The
event recorded over 3000 delegates, over 35 high
quality speakers, and it was the very first Summit,
Conference or seminar in Nigeria to be streamed
live to an audience of over 35,000 people in
different parts of the World.
“I am very excited about the Nigeria Leadership
Summit 2013 because the Conveners have a unique
focus and that is Youth Empowerment and Inclusion,
and I am totally committed to getting our Youths
into the work place using innovative strategies like
the ones promoted by the Anabel Leadership
Academy,”said Chief Anayaoku when asked about
his role in the Summit.
Chief Anyaoku’s participation at the helm of affairs
for the Nigeria Leadership Summit shows
tremendous promise for the future of the Nigeria
Leadership Summit and its entry into a class of its
own as one of the few World Class events being
held in Nigeria. In addition to Chief Anyaoku there
will be key note addresses from His Excellency
Chief Ernest Shonekan the former Head of State, Mrs
Oby Ezekwesili former World Bank Vice President
and a host of others.
According to Nicholas Okoye President of the
ANABEL GROUP and convener of the Nigeria
Leadership Summit, this year’s Summit will also
include three special focus panels. The first one is
on Women in Business, and the strategic role of
women in Job creation for Nigeria, some of the
Nation’s most successful women in Business have
signed up to participate in this panel.
A second panel will focus exclusively on
Entrepreneurship in Nigeria and using the path to
entrepreneurship as a solution for Jobs creation, this
panel will review the challenges as well as the
opportunities for Entrepreneurs in Nigeria, and how
we as a Nation can use Entrepreneurship to tackle
the unemployment crisis that is ravaging Nigeria.
The third special focus panel will be on Power; an
industry in Transition, providing for the Nigerian
People a deep insight into the recently privatized
Power Generation, and Distribution Companies and
a sneak preview of the regulatory environment, the
opportunities for Entrepreneurs and the strategic
role the industry will play in national development
in the months and years ahead. “ ……we are
focused on youth empowerment because we
strongly believe that Nigeria’s future lays almost
exclusively with our ability to empower our youths,”
said Nicholas Okoye Anabel Group President.
This year’s Leadership Summit is receiving support
from the Nigeria Electricity Regulatory Commission,
NEST Oil Group, Heritage Bank and a host of others.
