Its that time again! BN Tidbits

Queen Ure & Soul E

Celebrity couple, musician Soul E & banker Queen Ure have reportedly broken up. The couple who caused a sensation when they announced that they were married recently separated. Ure gave an interview to a soft-sell newspaper stating that she is having financial problems and this contributed to the breakup. Soul E is currently based in South East Asia (Malaysia & Phillipines) while Ure is picking up the pieces by returning to her banking career with FinBank. We hope they can resolve their differences and get back together. For background details on the couple, Click HERE & HERE

  12. Lords Host

    January 28, 2009 at 11:22 pm

    although i usually do not talk about known peoples marriage but yaraduas daughter marriage to a man old enough to be her father seem to be an arranged marriage for sure. this are suppose to be the educated elite of our society and unfortunatley their sense of education is in a pit. he the p married the daughter off for political reasons its obvious. pity for the 21 yr old daughter of his competing with older women and sharing her husband at such a young age. what a shame.

    Hmm… Modupe’s picture is either photoshop, or she has had more work done. If she did, she needs to stop now, before she ends up looking like lil kim.

  16. jbaby

    January 29, 2009 at 12:45 pm

    trendy i think u should stop hating on modupe. she looks amazing and u r just jealous. u should be prayin u look like that when u get to her age. so wat if she’s had work done in the past. please free her.

    Modupe looks lovely, airbrushed or not, lol
    Jim…oh, Jim, I have a sinking feeling that CD will be purely comical 🙁 I hope I’m wrong, though 😛
    I’m so disillusioned by 2face, I don’t really care who he picks. good luck to whoever it is, cuz she’ll prob have to deal with drama from different angles
    The BHF cover looks fab! Really vibrant

    January 30, 2009 at 3:26 am

    am hausa and i’ve got hausa friends and we not “all” marrying older men, its an ignorant misconception to generalise pple like that

  30. ladi

    January 30, 2009 at 5:06 am

    true, I’m from the north and my last blog post was about Nafisa.

    not all hausa girls are getting married to Older rich men/ politicians but the daughters of rich men tend to be arranged for marriage for usually political means.

    Why are Yar Adua’s two daughters (one divorced her first husband) and Babangida’s daughter (who also left her first) all married to Governors as 2nd, 3rd and 4ths?

    I have a cousin who’s been in Nafisa’s shoes though she married the son but when the poilitician lost his influence, his son divorced my cousin.

    CHECK MY BLOG!!!!!

    Abeg marriage for comfort in Nigeria is not specific to one tribe, Igbo people marry their daughters off to rich traders on a regular basis, some 15 – 20 years older than the chick. Maybe Nafisa loves her husband, and she’s not balking at being a 4th wife; why are you people taking panadol for someone else’s headache.

  38. yinmika

    January 30, 2009 at 5:02 pm

    the same way you are taking panadol for other people’s headache!

    January 30, 2009 at 10:21 pm

    ok i googled modupe and am impressed by her achievements really am I knew about bear foundation but not much…now I want that sleek paper or @bella us with more info cos it may take at least 2mths to get…

  40. tolu

    January 30, 2009 at 11:58 pm

    Okay before i proceed, this is not an attempt to clown Modupe Ozolua or anything like that, i love and respect her business acumen, she is a great entrepreneur, never fail to amaze me and i’m all for looking good even if it means achieving results through “a little help” , but hot damn! this chick is taking it a little to doggone far! whats up with the nose job??? She looks like freaking Pinocchio….so not cute! call ur surgeon and demand ur money back!

    On a totally different note, i am so excited about Tunde and Wunmi Obe’s upcoming project…been a fan of the couple since their dayz on Charlie boy show. However i just can’t help but mention those two need to hit the gym. Now i know Wunmi has always been a big girl but she seem to have added a lot of pounds over the years, likewise her husband who i remembered being so fit and good looking back in the 90’s…..whatever happened to the “T.W.O” of them???…..not trying to bash anyone here but common folks, y’all can do a whole lot better than that. I am not asking them to go on some crazy, crash diet but hiring a personal trainer would get them where they need to be. And i’m not trying to sound vain or anything like that, if anything i’m more concerned about thier health risk factors….especially Wunmi’s considering her brother’s demise related to Cardiac issues….hit the gym babe!!!

    To conclude, my take on the Hausa chicks marrying older MARRIED men phenomenon, one word; DISGUSTING!!! Get a grip ladies…its two thousand and freaking nine…not the stone age!!! Its not the “older man” factor that bothers me so much, but the fact that this knuckleheads are already married……NASTY, NASTY, PLAIN NASTY. Quit it ladies y’all can do much better than that.

    January 31, 2009 at 12:23 am

    she did the nose herself and didnt see how long it was…lol

    January 31, 2009 at 5:12 pm

    abeg make una leave the beautiful hausa girls alone o! their religion allows it so wetin be ur consain eh? at least they have the decency of marrying them and calling them wives as oppossed to all the southern asewo’s, prostituting themselves about as rich married men’s ‘mistresses’. which one better pass?. all of you talking are fucking hypocrites. Pretenders of the universe. Kpakpando said it right. An hausa/muslim man can marry 4 wives and i dn’t think Yardua’s daughter is marrying him for money – her father is the president. I cannot be 4th wife o! but i will respect pple who decide to go down that part if their culture or religion permits it. And i bet most of the idiots/hypocrite condemning this union come from polygamous homes or homes where their father openly keeps mistresses. IDIOTS LIKE YOU!!!

    I was suspicious of Ure and Soul E’s relationship from the beginning, just like every other Hollywood celebs, bcos Hollywood started it. I don’t think that kind of relationship can work especially in naija. Many young men’s fantasy is to be with an older woman, bcos she seems to have it together, but fertility or aging will make it not to last longer. Why do you think Tameka is like popping out babies like nothing for Usher before her biological clock is almost up. I thought Soul E said financial or age issues will never break them up, but I do hope they can resolve it. I personally don’t agree or support polygamy. I hope 2face is serious, enough of baby mama drama, and it’s about time he sticks to one woman. I do respect Modupe for her humanitarian work, but sista, you are taking it too far. She beta not bring Hollywood plastic surgery nonsense to naija. I’m sorry, we don’t need botox or nose job, our nose is fine the way it is, and black women age well. I definitely don’t want to see Michael Jackson replica or Plastic surgery gone wrong. Modupe looked fine the way she was, even with the boob job, so she needs to stop tryna look white. Jim Iyke is a mess, he needs to stick to modeling, maybe i should check it out to see if he will prove me wrong.

    February 1, 2009 at 11:04 pm

    Here’s the thing: I wanna know why all these actors want to sing. Does Jim Iyke have any singing talent at all? I heard some song that Ramsey Nouah and Segun Arinze sang and it was horrid. So is Iyke any better? Anyone know?

    February 7, 2009 at 5:45 am

    u reallly are in spirit Cici. U brought it. Does Jim Iyke think that his being good in the modellin world gives him a superb singing flow? Music is not about lookin good. What happened to Omotola, Genevieve, Ramsey, and all them other wanna-be’s. Please Nollywooders, take a cue from the hollywooders. Not everyone should be beyonce, or J-Lo or Tupac (rest his soul). Stick to what you are good at please.

  51. Ada

    February 7, 2009 at 5:59 am

    U took the words right out of my mouth.
    What’s up with that Modupe Chick. The nose job is not fantastic. At all. A first glance gives her this ‘HAWKISH’ look. Come on ladies, wetin no be ur own no fit be ur own.’ What happened to the ‘be content with what you have?’

    Speaking of The Yar’Adua wedding, to be honest, when i saw the picture (without the caption), i thought it was a father and daughter pic…….Blimey!!! What a couple

  52. Trendy

    February 7, 2009 at 7:16 pm

    Not hating, and i am not opposed to surgery (if i had the liver i will get some work done) Modupe is a gorgeous lady, i don’t think she needs to be doing anymore surgery. Too much of a good thing can be bad.

    you are such an idiot and it shows from this post! Northerners are so backwards in this respect. So, for the sake of not being a southern whater you call it you’d rather be an umpteenth wife? I bet you are wife no 200. Damburuoba!

  55. LOLA

    March 5, 2009 at 9:15 am

    lol, poor girl,(nafisa) im sure she did not have a say in the matter. arrangey
    As for Jim, i would wait to hear d album b4 i analyze, but if it sounds like his acting. i fear o.
    Modupe is trying to bring the NIPTUCK craze 2 naija.
    I support plastic surgery when it is constructive like people born with deformities or cancer patients that had body parts removed. plastic surgery helps them regain a normal life to an extent.
    But for people that have self confidence issues.try seeing a therapist. A pointier nose or a fuller breast is not going to make you happier.

  56. OMG!

    I swear I’m going over all this old gist and I’m just laughing my a** off.
    If it’s Nafisa’s choice, then it’s not my place to judge but wow!!!!!
    Soul E?? Where is that dude these days abeg??
