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.
