How are you guys doing? How was your weekend?
Mine was alright…I had a bad cold last week, so I am just recovering…
So how was yours?
Meanwhile, I only have one bellanaija facebook profile with the Deola Sagoe sunflower dress photo – HERE – ignore any others.
Last week one disrespectful and dubious individual decided to create a facebook profile as bellanaija and then proceeded to add and message people as me. He/she even put up a photo as well. Its just so sad that some people decide to spend their time on such nonesense. Advice from me to you – use your time for something more positive and God will reward you for it.

Tuface Idibia to sing against unprotected sex - By BABAJIDE SOLE from National Daily It appears that Nigerian hip-hop R&B superstar, Tuface Idibia is taking a u-turn from procreative activities to stir up an awareness against unprotected sex. Trends gathered that the artiste made this decision while in Kaduna for the Kaduna leg of his six-city tour tagged 2Face and Friends. As a result of his new found compassion for the motherless babies and abandoned children, courtesy of his visits to orphanages during his tour, Tuface has promised to dedicate some songs on his next album to create awareness against several societal ills that include child abandonment and unprotected sex.
- ironic but a step in the right direction
9ice Receives N1m from fan – By BABAJIDE SOLE from National Daily
According to sources, the said fan who has been very eager on seeing the visual rendition of 9ice monster single Gongo Aso gave the artiste a call inquiring how much it would cost to shoot the highly anticipated music video. 9ice, though surprised at the caller’s gesture, immediately responded that he would require about six million naira which he estimated would be the cost of shooting four music videos with top notch quality. Without hesitating the anonymous caller then asked 9ice for his account number and two weeks later 9ice received a text message from the same caller stating that he had credited his account with one million naira. “Right now as I speak, the caller still remains anonymous… I mean 9ice has never met this guy eye to eye. It is amazing the extent 9ices fans can go to support him. One million naira is no joke,” said the source
- good for 9ice, he deserves the success!
In other 9ice news, he was reportedly robbed on his way to the MBGNs on the 28th of March 2008.
- I’m glad noone was hurt. The robbery situation in Nigeria is awful.
Recent inductee into the International Billionaire Boys Club, Forbes billionaires list member, Aliko Dangote survived a near-plane crash last week. The billionaire was returning to Nigeria from a business trip to South Africa when his private jet developed an engine problem across the skies of Angola. One of the engines shut off when the plane was at over 40,000 feet above sea level. According to Mr. Dangote, all on board started praying and the pilot managed to make an emergency landing. About 2 minutes after the landing, the 2nd engine shut off as well. This illustrates the near-miss situation. This is the 3rd plane crash that he has survived. To read more about this. Click HERE
