New Video: Rick Ross – Hold Me Back (Nigeria)

Rick Ross aka Rozay was in Nigeria a few weeks ago for a concert and while he was there he shot another video for his track Hold Me Back.


It turns out the Jay-Z may actually have "Obama on the text," as previously proclaimed on Blueprint 3′s "On to the Next One." The Jigga Man and his wife Beyonce are set to host a fundraiser for President Barack Obama at Hov's Flatiron sports bar 40/40 tonight (September 18).
On his official Twitter page (@S_C_), Jay-Z--who hardly ever uses the social networking site-- tweeted, "Guest list. Obama plus 40," affirming that the President of the United States will be present at 40/40 this evening.
Obama, who's in New York City for his national fundraiser tour, is expected to greet 100 supporters who'll each pay $40,000 to attend the ceremony. This will add up to a sum of $4 million for the president's campaign. The fundraiser comes on the heels of a tight press junket that includes a visit to David Letterman's Late Show. Obama is expected to hold court at 40/40 at approximately 9:45 p.m

From time to time, cases like the one you’re about to read are reported, and the birth of Siamese twins is no longer news. This differs slightly however, as the baby boy in this case was born with two heads, and two necks on a single body.
The child was born to a woman in India who gave birth to him in a private hospital in Muktsar, Punjab, after a major operation last week Tuesday.

A female cashier working in a new generation bank along New Market Road, Onitsha, Anambra State has landed in trouble for sending robbers after a customer just after he withdrew N5 million from the bank.It was gathered that the customer was attacked by the armed bandits who operated on two motorcycles while waiting to board a vehicle to his destination.

While interviewing both parties, the female cashier consistently denied invo…

Nigerians die in chinese company pool

Someone sent a mail to Blogger, Ladun Liadi telling her about how some Nigerians were killed and drowned in the pool in a Chinese factory in Ikeja Lagos. The family are suspecting a foul player. Read the senders mail below.
''This is to notify you on this story that just got to me from a friend, whose brother is one of the dead boys. According to him, his brother worked with a Chinese company in Ikeja (, and he worked at the factory sometime last week, and slept over. His where about could not be determined till the following evening, where his body and that of his friend were found inside the company's swimming pool with blood coming out of their ears, nostrils, and mouth.
To my best of knowledge (i lost a brother to the pool, i.e got drowned). When a human drowns blood does not come out from those places, what we suspect is foul play, perhaps they must have seen or heard something they were not supposed to see or hear, or perhaps the company is into shady deals.
Please I wo…

I did not stab DJ Kevin - Skailey denies

From Skailey: Our attention has been drawn to reports claiming our client Adeyemi Lawal Quadri popularly known as Skaliey Mental allegedly stabbed one DJ Kelvin also known as Kelvin. We hereby wish to debunk such reports about our client. There was no time Skaliey did such act as reported. He is a law abiding citizen of the country and also a very jovial person to be with. However, there is no doubt about Skaliey being aware of the incident, but he was not the one that stabbed Kelvin as it is being reported. A mutual friend of both Skaliey and Kelvin known as Walex was the
culprit of the act.
This was also confirmed by statements taken by police from Kelvin, Skaliey and T Blaze, whose studio the ugly incident happened that day at Agbado area of Lagos.
On the report that Skaliey and his manager were contacted by the writer of the story, we wish to say that there was no time they were contacted to get their own sides of the story.
Those who ever put calls through to Skaliey know that whenev…

A 28-year old actor, Bestwood Chukwuemeka was on Monday sentenced to three-month imprisonment by a Karu Senior Magistrates’ Court, Abuja, for having sexual intercourse with another man through the anus.
The convict, who resides at Gidan Mangoro, had pleaded guilty to having engaged in homosexual acts.
“I am guilty of the charge against me. I  was under the influence of alcohol and I want the court to temper justice with mercy’’, he said. The police prosecutor, Mohammed Umar, had told the court that the convict committed the offence in August when the complainant was sleeping in his bed.
Homosexual acts, the prosecutor said, was contrary to Section 284 of the Penal Code. The prosecutor said since Mr. Chukwuemeka had pleaded guilty to the crime he initially denied, the court should try him summarily. The Senior Magistrate, Nafisatu Buba, sentenced him to three-month imprisonment without an option of fine.
“This would serve as warning to other youths who hide under the influence of alcohol t…

Melissa Gorga's Alleged Stripper Past Resurfaces - Thanks to Teresa Giudice! - on RHONJ

Strippergate continues!
Real Housewives of New Jersey fans were shocked last fall when reports surfaced that mom of three Melissa Gorga was previously employed as a stripper -- a claim she and her former boss vehemently denied. On Sunday's episode -- centered around the annual Posche fashion show -- viewers learned just how those rumors began.
"We're going to a fashion show, which historically doesn't end well, but we're going into it on the heels of a huge blowout. The recipe is not a good one," Caroline Manzo predicted early on during Sunday's show. The Posche 2010 runway show, which concluded with a fiery spat between Giudice and her cousin, Kathy Wakile, who challenged the way Giudice parented her daughters.

Picture Of WizKid’s Alleged Baby Mama And Son

There were several reports last year that Wizkid had become a father. The singer didn't make any attempt at denying or confirming the story.
Now an anonymous reader has sent pictures of the singer's baby mama.

The sender claims the lady in the picture is Wizkid's girlfriend, Shola who had a child Boluwatife for him last year. Shola is 21 and she recently finished from North American University. Boluwatife clocked one not too long ago.

Man Sets Live-in Lover Ablaze in Ikotun *Viewer Discretion Advised*

A 35-year-old lady yesterday told how her live-in lover poured fuel on her and set her ablaze in Ikotun area of Lagos State.

The lady, Janet Udegba said her lover, Mr. Kehinde Adesamuye, 39, set her on fire because he was angry and jealous over her relationship with other men. She said she was at the Junction where she does her business of selling cooked Indomie before kehinde came that night, poured petrol on her and lit it with fire.
Janet however says Nigerians should not let kehinde go scot free with what he has done to her. Janet narrates how it all started…

‘’My husband has always been jealous. He used to beat me every time, under any guise and excuse.

I’ve tried several times to leave him, but he always threatens to harm me. I stayed with him because I was afraid of him and my life. He always told me that I could never escape from him, except I leave Lagos State. Anytime I said I was leaving him, he would say, no problem, but that he would do something to me which I would not forge…

Gaymen Protesting Their Rights In Nigeria

As evident from the picture above, the men you see are gay. This picture is said to have been taken where they were found protesting their rights recently


Jay-Z's a perfectionist. Just ask Alicia Keys. As part of an episode of VH1 Storytellers, the New York-bred songbird recently shared details on her recording session for Hov's "Empire State of Mind."
The God MC asked Alicia to guest on the song, but apparently wasn't satisfied with the first version she submitted. To let Alicia tell it, she was congested during the first recording and Hov reached out and asked her to re-cut her vocals. Keys jokingly told the audience attending the taping at NYC's Metropolis Studios last night (September 13) that she was bothered by Jigga Man's request.
In the end, a classic was born. "Empire State of Mind" earned Jay his first No. 1 single as a solo artist on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It looks like Jay was onto something

Celebrities Behaving Badly: (Graphic Photos) Rapper Wale Caught Behaving VERY Badly in an ATL Club

Nigerian-American Rapper, Wale, just embarrassed himself, DC, Nigeria and all the many groups he claims to rep for. The foolishness is off the hook. Rapper Wale was just recently at a club in Atlanta and his actions are so embarrassing I bet when he comes out of that stoned stupor he will slap himself hard. So much for all that “I respect ma black sistas” talk he is always going on about. Wale even performed at a women’s empowerment conference back in March of this year. Just leave it alone with all that talk Wale. It’s a bit much and you ain’t even able to stick with it. *Sigh* caught Wale sucking on the nipple of some groupie in an Atlanta club and he let some of his boys have some too. The foolishness is off the hook.

Nigeria’s Professor becomes first black VC of University of Illinois

A Nigerian Professor, Ilesanmi Adesida made history last month by becoming the first black Provost/Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs of the well-respected University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign in the United States.

Box office: Boom times, or bust?

“The Possession” claimed the top spot at the box office last weekend, but we doubt Lionsgate was celebrating. The thriller was crowned champion of the worst box office weekend in more than a decade, with a total that didn’t even crack $10 million. Not exactly bragging rights.

But maybe Hollywood can hope for a turnaround this week: There’s “Finding Nemo” in 3-D, and “Resident Evil: Retribution” opening wide.

True, “Finding Nemo” is a re-release, and “Resident Evil: Retribution” isn’t going to get an audience off Oscar buzz, but that’s not to say fans won’t support. When “Resident Evil: Afterlife” opened in September 2010, it earned $26.6 million, according to, and recall how well “The Lion King” did when it returned to theaters last September, earning No. 1 its first weekend out with $29.3 million.

If “Finding Nemo” or “Resident Evil” pull in half that, hey — at least they achieved ticket sales over $10 million.

Also opening this weekend will be “The Master,” but it’s in…

Davido Releases Statement: I Am Not Wanted By The Police… Vows Not To Succumb To Blackmail

Pop star Davido has released an official statement denying the news of him being declared wanted by the Nigerian Police Force over the on-going assault case involving him and a taxi driver.
Yesterday, Saturday, September 16, 2012, we brought you a story culled from Crime Digest which reported that the Assistant Inspector General of Police had ordered the arrest of the popular pop singer.

Woman stabs her husband to death in Bayelsa

The police in Bayelsa State have arrested a 27 years old woman who allegedly stabbed her husband to death in the Azikoro suburb of Yenagoa the state capital.

The woman identified as Osas Omorege according to eyewitnesses stabbed her spouse, Chukwuma Iwu over alleged marital squabbles.

It was gathered that trouble started when the wife of the deceased suspected he was having extra marital affairs due to his alleged late night outings.

The tragic incident which threw the rustic Azikoro settlement into mourning occurred last Friday when the deceased reportedly received a phone call which the wife suspected was from one of his lovers.

The wife’s suspicion and anger over the phone call the source said, might have been fuelled by his alleged absence from home for two days.

“After returning late to his matrimonial home he received a phone call which the wife suspected was coming from his girlfriend and attempted to stop him from answering it”, the source added.

Consequently, a scuffle ensued and t…

Read About The Xenophobic Article About Actress Yvonne Okoro And Her Family

This is a very long story, one that cannot really be summarized because I want you to fully grasp the crux of the issue before leaving your comments. On my part, I see this matter as a very important one, relating to African unity as a whole and believe that if not quickly, and properly addressed, the situation could degenerate and threaten long standing relationships between Nigerians and Ghanians.

“What I’m is she talking about?”, you may wonder at this junction. I’m talking about the recent Nigerian-Ghanian rivalry which has been brewing for sometime now. The ugly monster has again reared its head through a Ghanian writer, who in a recent publication explained why he thinks Ghanian actress Yvionne Okoro’s sister Rosaline Okoro should not win Miss Ghana 2012 beauty pageant.
His reason: Rosaline Okoro is a legal and not a true Ghanian because her father is originally from Nigeria. It is note worthy to mention at this junction that Yvonne and her sister Rosaline were born and raised in…

New Twist In Wunmi Adebayo’s Murder: Armed Robber Boyfriend Confesses To Killing Her

After doing the first story about Wunmi(may God rest her soul), an undergrad of Tai Solarin University of Education, many tongues wagged saying that the news going around was a wrong, and that she was actually killed by robbers at her boyfriends house. More over, there were many pieces of the the puzzle of her death that still unsolved. As a result, I thought it will only be fair, to vindicate Wunmi, by getting to the root of the matter, so I kept investigating.

Many criticized me, saying I was being judgmental, and failed to understand that I did the story from my investigations which was yet to be conclusive and even said this: ” that was all I was able to gather about the events that to Wunmi Adebayo’s death”.
I continued to ask questions, and told my sources who are close to the situation to let me know immediately new details come up. Today 15th September 2012, a huge break in the case was made.
According to very reliable sources, who sent me the voice note(which I would upload as s…

Ibro the dwarf challenges Aki and Pawpaw

Ibro as Ibrahim Musa is popularly known says he too wants a slice of what Aki and Pawpaw is getting. At least he has what it takes, height. At less than three feet, he is definitely in the league of Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme. 
According to the Benue state born actor who has so far featured in a few movies, he disclosed that the duo believe that his entrance into the Nollywood industry would bring down their longtime built reputation and fame to nothing, now enraging them to ponder hatreds on him as the surviving actor. “They believe I want to take over from them, while that is not my intention. The industry is so big that it can contain whatever good talent anybody is coming with. I have received series of report from people, both on pages of newspaper on how they are biffing me,” he said.

Ikeja – A couple, Elochukwu and Chiamaka Nnajiofor, on Thursday denied the allegation that they tortured their 14-year-old domestic-help, Oliver Arakwe, to death.

Nnajiofor, a trader, made the denial while testifying at their ongoing trial before Justice Lateefat Okunnu of an Ikeja High Court in Lagos.

40-year-old Elochukwu and his wife Chiamaka, 26, were charged to court on a one-count charge of murder.

The Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) alleged that the woman had tortured the young boy for two days for “misbehaving”, which led to his death on Aug. 17, 2010.

However, the defendant, under cross-examination by the state Prosecutor, Mr Femi Adamson, maintained that Arakwe died of severe diarrhoea at the Eko Hospital, Surulere.

He said: “I never touched Oliver. The boy was sick and my wife called me that she had rushed him to the hospital.

“The boy was suffering from diarrhoea and later died despite the treatment given to him by the doctor”.

Oil Minister Diezani’s Convoy Kills Nigerian Journalist

The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) FCT Council, has expressed sadness over the death of Mr. James Momoh of Abuja based Pilot Newspapers.
Momoh was knocked down by the convoy of the Minister of Petroleum, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, along Nicon Junction, Maitama, late Wednesday evening on his way from work.

The character known as 2 Chainz continues to showcase multiple facets. The rapper formerly known as Tity Boi, has mentioned his past as a Division I basketball player, but not too many folks actually know how good he was.

Check out the highlights below:
"James Gwyn, North Clayton head coach (1986-1995): He was a tough matchup. He was a 6-5, 6-6 perimeter player. He didn't play inside at all. He could handle the ball very well, pass the ball very well. He was kind of a slippery guy. The little guys couldn't guard him and the big guys couldn't stay with him."

KIM KARDASHIAN Wears See Through Bra, Wishes Fans “Sweet Dreams” (PHOTO)

KIM KARDASHIAN wore a see through bra in one of her latest Twitter photos and wished her fans “Sweet Dreams” with it.
Unfortunately, we don’t think many were able to sleep after seeing this image:

As usual, Kim Kardashian couldn’t bear do a racy photo shoot—which she once called a “vintage” shoot where she lays down on a slab in a semi-sheer white lingerie with garter belts, a pearl necklace and some fur—and not show it to her fans.
But while she looked like she was in a rather uncomfortable pose and clothing to sleep in (although she’s obviously very used to wearing lingerie by now) the reality star tweeted “Goodnight” along with the picture.

And to make sure that viewers do get a good night’s sleep, she uploaded a closer shot—this time, with her left nipple more visible through her bra—with the message:
“Sweet dreams.”
Clearly, jammies and night gowns are overrated.
What can you say about Kim‘s latest lingerie pics?

Despite his blatant charade of nonchalance (which was heavily conveyed at this year's MTV Video Music Awards as he listened to music on his headphones throughout most of the event), Lil Wayne does care about his legacy. "I hope I'm remembered," Weezy confesses at the very end of his latest offering, Dedication 4. With D4, he adds another chapter to his legacy as an inventive artist who could flip the same subject matters until kingdom come.
The title of the second track encapsulates the entire tape, for it is indeed the "Same Damn Tune." Birdman Junior's skillful wordplay over others' beats and a few originals has clearly not tailed off. "You know that I ain't got no ceilings/The money changed me/I'm making cha-millions," Weezy voices over the instrumental to Meek Mill's "Amen." That is not to say he lacks weak lyrics on D4 ("Smoke so much that Smokey the Bear have to bear with us," Tunechi blandly phrases on…


French Montana and his wife of six years have allegedly parted ways, and of course there's two sides to the story. In an interview with THE BOOMBOX, French revealed him and his wife, Deen Kharbouch, have separated, saying "Man, I couldn't do it. That's why we got separated. At first it was smooth, but then as much as people think that money changes you, it's changing them around you. A person ain't gonna treat you the same now that they think you think you something."
"You around so many beautiful women, that's a conflict too," French said. "It's just about finding somebody that understand the game, what you're into. But then on the flip side, you gotta understand their game, what they into."
French's comments didn't sit too well with his wife, Deen Kharbouch, who says French abandoned her and their son two months ago after hitting it big. Kharbouch took to her Twitter account yesterday to address the remarks, stating…

Chris Brown’s rep on his tattoo: It’s not Rihanna

A new tattoo on Chris Brown’s neck is raising some eyebrows.

The singer’s new ink is a black-and-white image of what some believe is a woman’s battered face. Brown pled guilty in 2009 to assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna and was ordered to serve five years probation. He also completed community service and a domestic violence program.

A rep for Brown denied that the new body art was of the “Umbrella” singer, or even of a beaten woman.

“His tattoo is a sugar skull (associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead) and a MAC cosmetics design he saw,” his rep said in a statement. “It is not Rihanna or an abused woman as erroneously reported.”

So what do you make of it? Rihanna has been pretty vocal about her forgiveness of Brown and her desire to move on. The pair have collaborated on music, and they’ve reportedly started spending time in one another’s company again.

Rihanna recently told Oprah Winfrey that she “lost her best friend” in the wake of the assault and that she stil…

50 Cent Talks Kanye West Beef, Says It Was Just ‘Good Marketing’

Fiddy recently addressed his beef with Kanye West.
both rappers dropped their third studio albums, Curtis and Graduation, respectively, ten years ago today (September 11). At the time, Fiddy vowed to retire from hip-hop if Kanye’s album outsold his – which it did.
Unfortunately for Fiddy, Kanye’s LP sold 957,000 while the former’s record shifted 691,000 units – although he didn’t retire. Reflecting on the hype, Fiddy says he never had any intention of retiring and the whole plan was to drum up attention for their albums.
“At the time, I had a stronger feel for the streets [than Kanye], prior to that competition and trying to compete with each other,” Fiddy told XXL Magazine.
“That was just to build energy because Kanye [and I]…we didn’t have no beef at all. You can’t stand that close to someone and take pictures for the cover of Rolling Stone with having beef.”
“That was something that we created. Obviously, it riled the fans up in every way and the results are always bigger sales than usu…

Nicki Minaj Thanks Obama For Understanding Her Romney Sarcasm

All it took was some input from President Obama to finally get Nicki Minaj talking about her now infamous Mitt Romney line on Lil Wayne's Dedication 4 mixtape.
Fans examined the line from every angle when the song originally premiered but this week President Obama weighed in, telling Orlando radio station Power 953 that the YMCMB rapper's alter egos likely had something to do with the line.
"I'm not sure that's actually what happened," Obama replied, when asked if he'd heard that Minaj might vote for Romney. "I think she had a song on there, a little rap that said that, but she likes to play different characters. So I don't know what's going on there."
Check out what fans had to say about Nicki's Romney rap!
Well, Obama made a great guess. After hearing the president's comments, Minaj took to Twitter on Monday (September 10), finally clearing things up. "Ha! Thank you for understanding my creative humor & sarcasm Mr. Preside…
