Obafemi Martins is dating Mario Balotelli's elder sister, Abigail Barwuah and Mario is said not to be particularly happy about their relationship. But in a recent interview with Goal.com, Obafemi dismissed insinuations that Mario was not happy that he's dating Abigail

“Mario is my boy. The respect is there because I used to play at Inter, in the youth team with him. He’s giving me my respect and I’m doing same. People are putting it in the news that he’s upset, of course he’s glad.
“He’s glad that Obafemi Martins is dating his sister. But if he gets jealous then it means he doesn’t want his sister to grow. But it’s not like that. The boy is not a bad boy.
He also said he and Abigail haven't discussed marriage yet.
“The relationship is true but getting married or not, we haven’t discussed anything like that. She’s upstairs and we’re happy together.

Dr Adeleke Provides Private Jet For Davido’s Accra, Lagos Shows In One Night


DAVIDO FLYING PRIVATE ENROUTE GHANA AND BACK TO NIGERIA SAME NIGHT FOR DBANJ'S KOKO CONCERT

It is no longer news that Davido is a teen superstar in his own right and neither is it news that his father is a billionaire and supports his music. But what you may not know is Davido’s father, Dr Deji Adeleke, is so interested in his son’s music career that he will do whatever it takes to ensure the popstar honours his contract obligation with show promoters/organizers.
If you recall, yesterday, 27th December, was the much anticipated day for the annual Koko concert in Eko Atlantic City Lagos, organized by Dbanj and Davido was billed to perform there alongside other superstars. But it was a tricky situation for the young singer because he also had a show billed for the same night in Accra Ghana – he had to perform at both shows only if the venues were in the same city.
Enter Dr Adeleke. To save his son the stress of long queues, security and flight schedules and even delays associated with commercial flights, Davido’s father leased a private jet, yes, you read correctly a private jet for his last son so he could easily perform in two different countries in one night.
And this piece of information was revealed by none other than friend of the Adelekes and renowned publisher/journalist, Dr Dele Momodu, in a tweet. He wrote: “Dele Momodu Ovation @DeleMomodu Davido’ Dad Dr Adeleke is a gentleman. Davido is performing in Accra tonite & he wants his son to play at Koko concert. He provided a jet!”

Petroleum Minister Allison-Madueke Returns To Hospital In London

Nigeria’s controversial Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Allison-Madueke, has returned to a London hospital to continue treatment for an undisclosed ailment that is believed to be cancer.
Saharareporters sources said today that Mrs. Allison-Madueke made the journey last week, and began a daily therapy.  She is yet to return to Abuja.

Her one-week absence from Abuja has emboldened those Nigerians who have been calling for her removal to further pressure President Goodluck Jonathan to sack her as Minister of Petroleum Resources.  She is frequently cited on allegations of corruption and mismanagement, but is also known to be a close friend of the President’s.

Recently, the French government impounded a private jet that was carrying Jide Omokore, a business associate of the Minister, on suspicions that the jet-a Bombardier Global Express XRS- belongs to her.

Investigations show that the jet was purchased by the Bank of Utah Trustee in June 2012 through the same process that was recently used in purchasing private jets for the governors of Rivers and Akwa Ibom States.

Unbelievable tragedy in Newtown! RIP to the little ones we lost..












I know you all have heard about the tragic event that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary school yesterday December 14th. 20 year old Adam Lanza (pictured below right) killed his mum at home and drove to the school in Newtown, Connecticut and opened fire on pupils and teachers, killing 26 people in all. 20 children between 5 to 10 years old and six adults, including the school principal; before killing himself.

Adam Lanza was dressed in black military gear and a bullet proof vest when he opened fire in the principal's office and then moved to a kindergarten classroom where his mother, Nancy, taught. The three guns (Glock and Sig Sauer revolvers and Bushmaster rifle) used in the shooting were legally purchased by Adam's mother, Nancy Lanza, whose body was found in the home she shared with Adam. This massacre is the worst involving little children in American history. How could something this horrible happen? Truly truly truly sad! Can't believe this guy went after defenseless little children. So heartbreaking. Our hearts go out to the mothers who lost their children and people who lost loved ones. May God bless the memory of all the victims.

MTN to spend $1.3bn on network expansion in 2013



Mobile network operator, MTN Nigeria, said on Wednesday that it would spend $1.3 billion on network expansion in 2013. Brett Goshen, chief executive officer of the company, made this known in Lagos at the official commissioning of MTN Yello City, a unique Customer Experience Centre.
This year, the telecommunications company had set aside similar amount for its nationwide network optimisation and modernisation project which is already at an advanced stage. This investment, according to Goshen, is an indication of the company’s commitment towards rendering best-in-class customer service on its network.
“We have invested $1.3 billion on the network in 2012 alone. This covers the extensive network optimisation and swap out exercise. We will also spend a similar amount on network expansion in 2013”.
The experience centre, according to the MTN CEO, is strategically designed to provide customers with ready access to a wide selection of MTN products and data/Information Communications Technology (ICT) services in a conducive environment.
“We have deployed significant resources into building this facility and many others across the country because the future of our business is in data and ICT services”.
He said MTN will continue to push the boundaries of customer service in order to meet the ICT needs of its customers. New and potential customers who visit the Yellodrome Service Centre, Goshen said will receive “personalised assistance from in-house specialists who will always be on hand to provide useful information about our various products and services”. This, according to the MTN boss, could range from a bouquet of ICT services aimed at small, medium or large businesses, or its mobile money service.
Speaking in the same vein, Akin Braithwaite, customer relations executive, MTN Nigeria, said the company recognises the importance of enhancing the overall customer experience on its network.
Over the following months, Braithwaite said MTN intends to open similar centres across the country to complement its existing service centres and connect stores.

10 Foods That Will Greatly Increase Your Performance in Bed


The two most important classifications for men’s sexual health foods are those that promote good blood circulation and those that will increase dopamine, a chemical in the brain.
Here are the top 10 Foods.
1. Salmon – and other oily fish such as mackerel and herring are packed with Omega 3, which increases blood flow around the body and to the genitals and is vital for fighting erectile dysfunction.
2. Lean Meat (in moderation) – Low levels of iron can also cause fatigue and kill sex drive, so eat lean red meat, dark turkey meat, chicken, eggs and oily fish; all of these are a good source of iron.
3. Cherries – raspberries and blackcurrants are rich in anthocyanins, an antioxidant that prevents fatty deposits on the walls of blood vessels keeping blood running smoothly. Fruitsareliterallybursting with fiber and antioxidants. They are thought to be loaded with aphrodisiac properties; Apples, apricots, bananas, coconut, dates, figs, grapes, mangoes, papayas, peaches, pears, plums, pomegranates, quince, raspberries and strawberries – take your pick.
4. The avocado – Believe it or not, the Spanish conquistadors helped spread its reputation throughout the world as a powerful sexual stimulant. Guacamole usually contains a lot of sodium, however so be careful.
5. The tomato – a potent source of the powerhouse antioxidant, lycopene, was once a highly sought-after libido enhancer. Other veggies reputed to turn up the heat include: beans, garlic, leeks, onions, parsley, peppers, soybeans, spinach, truffles, turnips and watercress.

Weird: Dogs Being Trained to Drive Cars! Care for a Ride?


Imagine yourself driving, you take a look at your rear-view mirror and find the car right behind you is being driven by a dog! Well, this might as well be happening soon as some animal experts are teaching dogs how to drive.
According to the experts, it took three Mutts just eight weeks to master the basics in wooden carts. They then graduated to a modified Mini in which they sat on their haunches in the driver’s seat with their paws on the steering wheel. Their feet go on extension levers which are attached to the accelerator and the brake while their paw rests on the gearstick.
Sounds weird right? An animal welfare group in New Zealand trained the dogs to get behind the wheel in an attempt to show the public how intelligent they are. The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals will put them to the test in a live broadcast next Monday!
The dogs have been trained in specially made wooden carts which they have been driving around inside an indoor test lab. Mark Vette, the animal trainer who is schooling the dogs, said in a preview of the show that they treated the training like a ‘film shoot’, in reference to his work in the movies.
He said: ‘We train the dogs to do different actions, touch is the first thing and then we teach them to touch the different objects with the right paw and left paw… They’ve all come through at this point and they’re all going really well.”

Mark Zuckerberg made $3.5 billion last month (November)



Yes, you heard right. $3.5 billion in just one month. Facebook's stock shot up from $21.08 a share on the first day of trading in November to $28 a share at the end of the day Friday, its highest price since July. Zuckerberg, who owns about 504 million shares of Facebook stock, gained about $3.48 billion as a result...



When Facebook first went public at $38 a share in May, Zuckerberg’s shares were worth $19.1 billion. In the following months, the stock dropped to less than half that IPO price to $17.55 in late August, pushing Zuckerberg’s net worth down to $8.84 billion.

Since then, Facebook’s stock has recovered in fits and starts and so has Zuckerberg’s wealth. November proved to be by far the most robust growth month for the stock to date, thanks to two big factors. First, the company had a strong earnings report in late October, which showed that Facebook was making progress in monetizing mobile. Secondly, the second and largest lockup period for stocks held by employees finally expired in the middle of November, which was something investors had been dreading for months and arguably held down the stock price.

As of last Friday, Zuckerberg’s net worth was $14.1 billion and will likely only continue to grow in December.

Oh dear, Gabriel Aubry was really battered! Gets restraining order



The next day, Gabriel says he took Nahla to Halle's at around 10 AM.  He says in a completely unusual move, Olivier came out of the front door -- usually the nanny was the go-between.  Gabriel claims Olivier said, "We need to talk." Gabriel says he walked toward his car to close his door when Olivier jumped off the stairs and knocked Gabriel to the ground and started brutally beating him, screaming that Gabriel cost them $3 million to fight the custody war (Halle's failed move to take Nahla to Paris).
Gabriel says Olivier took his head in his hand and slammed it on the concrete driveway.
According to the declaration, as Olivier assaulted Gabriel he screamed that they were going to move to Paris and Gabriel had better move there too or Olivier would kill him. 
Gabriel claims Olivier then said, "We called the cops," and that when they show up, "you're going to tell them that you're the one who attacked me, or I'm going to kill you."
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Gabriel made no mention of the alleged threats when he spoke to police immediately after the fight.

Gabriel alleges in his declaration that Halle lost her bid to get primary custody with the judge consistently siding with Gabriel for a 50/50 arrangement.
Gabriel's lawyer attached photos of his injuries which are brutal. Sources on Halle's side claim it was Gabriel who flew off the handle and started the fight.

DKB Kisses Zainab’s Feet Live On TV As A Sign of Apology

What happened between Zainab and DKB at the Big Brother House, might have been eating both of them since it caused them a lot and even a chance to change their lives, but as they say, the word ‘Sorry’ heals lots of wounds.

It was all joy yesterday on Viasat’s ‘The One Show’ with Joselyn Dumas and her co-host PY Addo as DKB and Zainab showed Ghanaians that they were finally together as friends.

DKB who last Friday on his ‘Friday Madness’ on Pravda Radio apologized to Zainab went ahead to do the same and continued it at the 4syte VMA on Saturday and finally ended it on Viasat One. The comedian when asked by the host to publicly apologize to the model went on his knees and begged her after which he raised her leg and kissed it.

For now DKB can walk around with no loads on his head since he was always buying credits to send apology messages to her. Zainab disclosed that, anytime she heard her phone peeped and realised it was a text message; she knew it would be from no other person than DKB.

She got bored at a time that she no longer wanted to even hear DKB’s name. She added that, she heard all the songs DKB composed because of her but she wasn’t ready to forgive him. Thanks now as all seems over and both can continue to live their lives in peace.

DKB swore that he will never slap a lady again.

THE FACTS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT CANCER


There are many factors that go into causing it in an individual. Genetics is a big factor because it has been found that cancer runs in a family.  Each type of cancer has a different risk factor. Living a healthy lifestyle, however, will reduce your chances of getting cancer.

== Steps ==
#Avoid potentially carcinogenic compounds, such as formaldehyde (found in car exhaust and in sealant products) benzene, asbestos and many others. For the most part, try to avoid automobile fumes and similar air impurities. A government-approved list of carcinogenic compounds can be found in sources & citations.
#Don't use tobacco. Not smoking is one of the most important health decisions you can make. It can reduce your risk of several cancers, including lung, esophagus, voice box (larynx), mouth, bladder, kidney, pancreas, cervix, and stomach. Every time you smoke a cigarette, you inhale more than 60 substances that can cause your cells to become cancerous
#Get more vitamin D. Recent studies indicate that people with plenty of vitamin D in their blood are four times less likely to develop cancer. The correct dosage of vitamin D is still debated, and some authors suggest as much as 4,000-5,000IU per day to receive the full benefits of vitamin D. (Although make sure not to exceed by far this amount, since you can overdose on vitamin D)
#Eat a variety of healthy foods. While this isn't a guarantee, a healthy diet can reduce your risk of getting certain types of cancer. According to the Mayo Clinic, about 30% of cancers are related to issues of nutrition, including obesity.
#Eat an abundance of foods from plant-based sources. Eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day. Also, eat whole grains and beans. Green and dark yellow vegetables, beans, soybean products vegetables such as   broccoli, brussel sprouts and cabbage may help reduce your risk of colon and stomach cancers. Buy fruits and vegetables organically grown. Non-organic fruits and vegetables that have a thin skin absorb pesticides. These pesticides can cause cancer.

#Limit saturated fat. Chose low-fat or fat-free foods. High fat diets may increase your risk of cancers of the prostate, colon, and uterus. One way to limit your intake of saturated fat is to limit your meat consumption and include more meatless meals in your diet.
#Stay active and maintain a healthy weight. Research suggests that exercising regularly may also play a role in preventing cancer and other diseases. Obesity is a risk factor for some cancers, so it is important to maintain a healthy weight for your height, age, gender, etc. Physical activity, along with a healthy diet, can help lower your risk of certain types of cancer. Try to be physically active for 30 minutes or most days of the week. A study has shown sitting for long periods of time may put you at higher risk of certain cancers.
#Protect yourself from the sun. Skin cancer is one of the most common kinds of cancer and also one of the most preventable. Avoid being outside during the time that the sun is strongest. If you need to be outside, cover up with sunblock, hats, and sunglasses and stay in the shade.
#Get your immunizations. Certain cancers are associated with infections that can be prevented with shots. Hepatitis B can increase your risk of liver cancer and HPV (Human papillomavirus) can lead to cervical cancer. Be sure to talk to your doctor about what is right for you.

Ogechukwu Godwin & Chuka Make It to the Top 10 on Nigeria’s Got Talent! View Photos & Videos from the Ninth Episode

It gets more exciting, as two contestants, Chuka and Ogechukwu Godwin, last week joined Mr. Bariyu and Impulsein the final stage of the popular franchise show.
Twenty year old Ogechukwu Godwin was the viewer’s choice, and this automatically qualified him to join the finalist train. However, following the show’s format, the judges had to pick between who had the second and third highest votes- The Lord’s Chosen Dancers and Chuka.
While Yibo and Kate chose Chuka, Dan insisted that he would have loved to go with The Lord’s Chosen Dancers, but it wouldn’t change anything.
With Chuka and Ogechukwu joining the finalists, the heat is definitely on as the final performance night on December 9 gets closer and closer, and as the weeks go by, ten contestants come in every week to slug it out for a position in the final stage.
This week, Vodavillz dance group, Asuquo Romeo (Mono Cyclist juggler), Azuka Ekazue (Singer), Toke Salami (Singer), The Pebbles (Dance group), Gabriel Ayankojo, Obetem Nkami Deborah, Xpendables and Blessing Christopher performed in front of the judges. “Only two people from this group will make it to the final stage”, says Adaora Mbelu, Project Manager.
Sixteen semi-finalists with the lowest public votes have been eliminated from the contest and as the show gets hotter, the curiosity has reached high points. Who will be the winner?
Voting closes by midnight on Tuesday, so viewers are expected to send their favorite character’s short code to 33685.

During his performance at the recently held Felabration 2012, at the New Afrika Shrine on Friday, October 19, the pop singer kicked off his performance with Psquare’s ‘Do as I do‘ which features Tiwa Savage and himself.
He then goes on to perform his first single ‘Soundtrack‘ before following with Psquare’s ‘Chop my money‘. He wrapped up his set with his hit single ‘Ile Ijo‘.
What was more surprising was that the pop singer didn’t just perform his own cameo verses off the Psquare songs but the entire songs. The crowd however still seemed to be thrilled as they danced away.
In August 2012, May D cut ties with Psquare after the label boss Jude Okoye released a statement that he had been dropped from Square Records. A month later, the gangly singer announced the launch of his new label Confam Entertainment.

Martins Hails Keshi As The Special One

Levante of Spain striker Obafemi Martins has heaped plaudits on the Super Eagles for mauling Liberia 6-1 in Calabar last Saturday to qualify for next year's Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.Martins is particularly pleased with the work the team's gaffer,Stephen Keshi has done in transforming the Eagles to a scintillating team Nigerians saw on Saturday.
“They deserve all the accolades they got from everybody and I want to add my voice to that.They did the unthinkable,scoring six times against a team that forced them to a 2-2 draw in the first leg. 
“The result will not only bring confidence back to the fold but also shows that Stephen Keshi is really working hard to see that Nigeria reclaims her rightful position on the world map”,he said.While optimistic of getting a recall to the Eagles,Martins says he still has plenty of room for improvement at his new club after scoring two goals in his first three games.The 27-year-old striker who joined the La Liga side on a two-year deal on a free transfer after Rubin Kazan agreed to terminate his contract before its expiration date warned his side's rivals that they can expect plenty more fireworks once he reaches full fitness
 "I'm getting used to each player on a daily basis and I’m much quicker in front of goal now,” he began in a chat with Complete Sports.
"I'm very confident that I will score more goals with Levante this season and this could start against Getafe on Sunday".
