He kept his condition under control with medication, but it came back with a vengeanc…

10 Shocking scandals of 2013

The year under review was indeed characterized by many scandalous and controversial incidents; from the mundane to the abominable. SHOWBIZPLUS brings you an overview of the messy events and the characters involved. Tonto drunkenness, half nude, fall on stage Rivers State-born entertainer, notorious for high-voltage controversies, Tonto Dikeh, became one of the climaxes on stage at the AY Live Comedy and Music Concert which held on Easter Sunday at Eko Hotel and Suites. To the consternation of her teeming fans and fun seekers, Tonto stepped on the expansive stage clad in skimpy white panties that exposed a lot of flesh, thus leaving her almost naked.  She matched this with a wacky sleeveless white shirt, black bow tie and sneakers in sync with her dancers. Caught in the euphoria of the moment, the controversy-loving entertainer carried on unconcerned as she struggled to pull up her straining waist-length panties to cover her lower butt from spilling out of the very tight attire.

7 Women changing the way you use technology

And live your life Do you have what it takes to change the way we use our gadgets? These seven women are some of the most power technological titans in the world.
Times, they are a-changin'! In the past, women have been grossly underrepresented in the technology sector, from engineering to major websites, but earlier this year, InfoWorld reported that thus far in 2013, a vast majority of the new hires in the tech sector have been women according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics. To celebrate, we've rounded up a list of seven inspiring figures in the field.

1 Marissa Mayer In 1999, Marissa Mayer became the 20th employee and first female engineer of the now ubiquitous Google. She worked her way up the ranks from engineer to designer to product manager, eventually landing a coveted executive position, where she became the company's key spokesperson.

Co-hosting The 2013 Headies is the Worst Thing Tiwa Savage has Done with her Career?

This is a pretty strong review of the recently completed Headies with an F grade score for Tiwa Savage. Did any AML persons attend? Your thoughts?

“First of all, it must be known (regardless of your view or personal sentiment about the event) that the Headies Awards sets a record that corporate partners should now strictly observe while they contribute value and support to the Nigerian music/entertainment industry. So, to set the record straight by Headies’ standard, sponsorship contracts should now include: event organizers must return the sponsors’ money with a 5000 page apology letter if the event looks like the 2013 Headies awards. Simple.
Choosing the worst hosts for a live TV program wasn’t the only thing that flawed the brilliant lighting effects at the Headies last night, Nigeria’s “biggest music awards” had no spectacle on a performance list that included Praiz, Waje, Olamide, Phyno etc. Where ever they got those dancers from, whoever got the costumes, whoever…

More Trouble in Paradise for Kerry Washington and Nnambdi?

The last time we visited the subject of Kerry Washington’s suspicious marriage to unemployed footballer Nnamdi Asomugha, rumor had it that Washington was allegedly being blackmailed by Asomugha, who was unceremoniously booted off the San Francisco 49ers team.
Now comes word that Asomugha is complaining bitterly that the ‘Scandal’ actress spends way too much time on her career while he sits at home thumbing through the wanted ads.
Washington is pregnant with Asomugha’s spawn. But the fact that Washington and Asomugha are never seen together in public fuels rumors that their marriage is a smoke screen.

From The National Enquirer:
“Nnamdi is complaining [Kerry] has time to promote her TV show, business ventures and charities, but she rarely spares an evening to be home with him.”
According to the source Nnamdi said he is concerned that they are already growing apart.
“Instead of slowing down during her show’s Christmas hiatus, Kerry funneled her extra time into her fashio…

Tits The Season – Miley Cyrus Tweeted Out a Topless

Here’s how Miley Cyrus sends her holiday greetings: By tweeting out a topless photo. It’s basically a hype for a documentary called Free the Nipple, an NC-17 rated documentary about the censorship of topless women.  In other news, this is probably the least risque thing Miley Cyrus has done this year. Can’t wait to see her attention-whoring game in 2014. We expect it to be stunning.

Known in Hollywood as the ‘King of Bling’, Nigerian-born jeweler, Chris Aire has stars such as Angelina Jolie, 50 Cent Shaquille O'Neal as well top sport stars on his clientele list.

I Love Sexuality, But I'm Spiritually Inclined"-Singer Maheeda As She Insists She Is A Gospel Singer And Releases Even Raunchier Christmas Photos(18+)

I Love Sexuality, But I'm Spiritually Inclined"-Singer Maheeda As She Insists She Is A Gospel Singer And Releases Even Raunchier Christmas Photos(18+) This Maheeda babe is as ridiculous as it gets.
The controversial singer(real name Caroline Sam), known for posting nude pictures on the internet told Galaxy Television why she loves to pose nude, and insists she is a gospel singer. See what she said below:"I'm not posting those nude pictures on the internet to teach people to start going naked, I posted them because I felt I am sexy and I love sexuality. In Europe, where I live, at a certain age, parents will start to teach their children about sex education. But it is unfortunate that I came from this part of the world where sentiment is attached to everything.
I’m 31 years old and I can’t pretend to behave like a baby or something. I’m sexy and I like it. I’m still spiritually inclined and I have some gospel songs which are not out yet. One of them is Papangolo. Those n…

The truth about Saidi, Fathia’s feud

It is no longer news that the simmering feud between ex-spouses and colleagues Fathia and Saidi Balogun is back on the boil. The truth however is that the stories being circulated contains mostly half-truths and has nothing to do with what is really going on between the two. The story is that the two actors are in court over the right to the name ‘Balogun’. As you know, Fathia after seven years of divorce continues to use Saidi’s Balogun’s surname. But indications from both of them show  the issue is not quite what it is touted to be. What probably escalated the matter is the press release earlier sent out by Fathia which reads, “Our attention has been drawn to media reports where Saidi Balogun claims that he knows nothing about the media reports that he is in court with our client Fathia Balogun. We will like to put the records straight.” (more after the cut)
The error is, the release did not mention which case was in court. Many quickly deduced that the case is about the usage of the s…
