(News) Tiwa Savage, Tee Billz May Divorce Soon! @tj_shetade

Tiwa-Tee-Billz

According to sources, Tiwa Savage  has been  hospitalized after being battered by husband, Tee Billz.

Really we don’t want to write false story about this development but read what Tiwa Balogun posted recently on instagram,

“The face that made me happier, as a woman now brings tears to my eyes the face that made me feel like a woman now turns me to a punching bag …i loved you but life is too short to live it unhappy …HBD”  she said on social media.

But recent reports have it that Tiwa Savage and Tunji Balogun’s marriage is heading to the rocks, she might change her mind later but right now they are undergoing some serious marital crisis.

One Kemi Felani, who is very close to the couple revealed. Their marriage is barely five months (they got married in Dubai in May) but Tiwa can’t hold it anymore… she’s tired of putting up with Tunji….. he beats her, etc… So many incredible stories I can’t even put here but she’s finally ready to call it quit and it all revolves around her money.
Three different sources in their inner circle confirmed this.

‘Kemi added it’s nothing new abeg. We were shocked when she accepted to marry him, he’s been beating her even before he asked her to marry him but love is stupid sometimes.

When she agreed to marry him fine, we said ‘okay, do a private and not a big wedding in case things fall apart but they said no… It’s money sharing formula that is worrying them,” one of the sources in the circle confidently said.Another reports have it that Teebillz who is also Tiwa’s manager did not accompany her to the Africa unplugged event that took place recently in London.Also lately an unknown person accosted one of Hip tv reporters at Dammy Krane’s album launch claiming to be Tiwa’s manager. Tiwa Savage Balogun recently posted a picture on her Instagram page that said her husband, Teebillz can’t divorce her, and neither can he return her.

Tongues are wagging and questions are being asked could this love boat be rocking as the couple is hardly seen together these days?

We contact Tee Billz, but he is yet to reply us as you are reading this report.

(Politics) Why Tinubu will not celebrate Nigeria at 54

Tinubu2

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, former Lagos state governor has stated that he does not feel optimistic about celebrating Nigeria’s 54th Independence in an elaborate fashion.

According to a press statement released by the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, on Monday, 29 September, 2014, Nigerians suffer from poor leadership, while the nation is yet to fulfill its potential.

“We commemorate this Independence Day because the nation has survived despite its many challenges. We dare not celebrate because the nation has not flourished as it should. 54 years our national trek began with hope and promise, peace and unity.

“Today, the nation staggers beneath the weight of trouble stacked upon problem multiplied by hardship. Peace and unity seem to have yielded the moment to violence and discord.

“We exist as a political unit on a map but we do not prosper as brothers and sisters in one nation, under one flag and pursuant to one accord,” he began.

Insisting that he is proud to be a Nigerian, Tinubu noted however, that “genuine patriotism should not induce blindness” and therefore urged Nigerians to focus on the problems that remain unresolved.

Speaking about the upcoming celebrations of the October 1 Independence Day, the APC Chieftain confessed that: “this is not a time for fake cheers and elation at the present state of things just because the calendar has touch this day. We need to use this hour soberly by taking stock of the obstacles mounting before us and of the hard direction in which we seem to be heading.

“I fear this direction, if further taken, will lead us not home but to an appointment with failure and national destitution”.
Tinubu criticized the current administration over hindering the country’s progress because of the adopted direction.

“Nigeria is currently saddled with the reprobate leadership Awo, Zik, Sardauna and Tafawa Belewa feared. We have entered unchartered territory not so much because we are expanding the outer bounds of national progress.

“We traverse such ground because this government leads us into places where angles fear to tread and where sensible man should not go.

“Never has an elected government in Nigeria employed religion as a tool to divide the people, setting Nigerian brother against brother in a manner that allows this administration to function at the basest level of governance while seeking to establish a political domination that seeks no greater purpose than its self perpetuation.

“Our nation was supposed to advance, year by year, toward greater democracy. Instead, we rush into the pit of arbitrary, imperious rule that smacks of despotism,” he noted.

Tinubu enumerated Nigeria’s problems and challenges concluding that those were not reasons for celebration, but the “troubling signals” that should awake the nation.

He said: “the incessant attempts to stigmatize and physically intimidate a peaceful political opposition and the militarization of elections are features of a perverse democracy, a democracy run at gun-point and with a swift and eager trigger.

“Brazen assaults on the judiciary, the flippant and frequent violation of the constitution and the rule of law, and the elevation of corruption to making it a new and perhaps the strongest arm of government are the instruments that now shape our nation.

“These things are not the fare of celebration. They are the impetus for political reform and change.”

In his statement Tinubu said the 16 years of ruling by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) pulled the country back adding that “the longer they rule, the less benefit the people derive”.

Three people died and thirty injured at Anambra yesterday in tanker  explosion accident.

Thirty others sustained various degrees of injuries when a gas laden tanker reportedly had a brake failure on Nkpor Bridge in Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State and hit the protector pillars before bursting into flame.

It was gathered that the ill-fated tanker emptied its liquid content in the market, which led to escalation of the fire in Nkpor Market and resulted in more casualties.

Over 30 people, mostly market women, sustained degrees of injuries, while livestock, tubers of yam, clothes and other food items estimated at millions of naira were burnt.

About five vehicles were also destroyed by the inferno, which men of the fire service battled to put out without success.

Traffic was subsequently diverted to the Enugu/ Onitsha Expressway, where the incident occurred.

Confirming the incident, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in charge of Ogidi Police Division, Mr. H. Musa said the incident occurred at about 4p.m., adding that his men collaborated with fire fighters to salvage the situation.

He, however said, “nobody died and those who were injured have been rushed to the Onitsha General Hospital and Borromeo Hospital.”

… Called ‘Who Wants To Be President?’
Awaka Igwe husband, Charles Igwe has launched a political game. The game that is developed for the family would make lots of Nigerians have sense of belonging in the current political campaign going on in Nigeria at the moment.
The new board game teaches political strategy and is fun for all round entertainment was launched on Saturday , September 27th at the Freedom Park, Lagos Island.
The game is called “Who Wants To Be President?”. The players go through all the processes aspiring political leaders go through with the ultimate aim of winning “elections.” The steps include seeking party nominations, campaigning in the 36 states of Nigeria, cajoling for votes, negotiating for the best deals, strategizing, spying on opponents, disrupting the plans of the opposition, countering their moves and so on.
The game ends when one of the players presents the card calling for “Instant Elections” or one of the players reaches the end. Only players who have won votes in 21 states would be eligible to have his “votes” counted. The player with the most “votes” wins and is declared president.
The game was developed by Charles Igwe, the widower of the late producer and writer, Amaka Igwe, in 1993. He said the game was created primarily as a form of family entertainment and to educate as many Nigerians as possible on the intrigues, strategies and politics of running for and winning elections.
“I wanted to bring the good old days when families would sit around one another and have fun playing a board game,” Mr. Igwe said. “These days, kids prefer to be on their electronic games all day. This is a game everyone can enjoy together.
“I also hope that more Nigerians will understand their roles in picking and voting for leaders. The game mimics all the drama and backdoor deals that go on in the political space and by seeing them through this game, I hope Nigerians will be better informed about their country and about the politics that surrounds them.”
The game delivers the experience of participating in and contesting elections, the thrill of winning and losing, and the challenge of trying again. Persons of ages 8 and above can play the game. It can be played by two to six players, which can be individuals, groups, communities or teams.
Mr. Igwe said the game would be available in major stores nationwide, with an digital version in the works. He said he hopes that it would be an educational tool for people who are interested in politics as a subject or hope to run for elections.
“This is my contribution to Nigeria. I hope Nigeria is better for it,” he added.

(Developing Story) $9.3m scandal: Oritsejafor violated company law, says Falana

…”My Hands are clean”- Ayo Oritsejafor says

This is very serious now about the controversial money laundering allegation that surrounds Nigerian Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor.

Human rights lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), has accused the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, of breaching the provisions of the Company and Allied Matters Act through the use of a private jet belonging to a company in which he had interest to smuggle $9.3m cash to South Africa.

Falana said by the provisions of CAMA, the jet which was allegedly registered for the facilitation of evangelism could not be leased to another company for commercial purpose, as CAN had said while defending Oritsejafor.

The lawyer said this in a paper he delivered at a seminar organised for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s prosecutors by the Justice Research Institute in Abuja.

He described as diversionary, the statement credited to CAN that the jet had been leased to another company, apparently to deny Oritsejafor’s involvement in the jet’s mission to South Africa.

He said, “Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, whose private jet was used to ferry the money to South Africa, has denounced those who have dared to challenge the involvement of a plane bought for evangelism in the alleged smuggling of laundered money.

“In spite of the diversionary statement of CAN, the influential pastor cannot dismiss the scandal with a wave of the hand. With respect, the explanation by CAN that the jet was leased to another company is an admission of the breach of the law.

“A jet registered for the facilitation of evangelism cannot be leased to another company for commercial purposes, as churches are registered under part C of the Company and Allied Matters Act as non-profit making organisations.”

He noted that many Nigerian pastors had been indicted in the United Kingdom for investing church funds in violation of the Charity Act.

He, therefore, said the CAN President should apologise to Nigerians if he was lucky to escape prosecution for a breach of the provisions of CAMA.

The lawyer said, “In recent time, some of our pastors have been indicted in the United Kingdom for investing church funds in business in violation of the Charity Act.

“If Pastor Oritsejafor is lucky that he is not prosecuted for breaching the CAMA, he owes Nigerians a public apology. The CAN leadership cannot afford to engage in attacking its political opponents in a matter pertaining to the breach of the law.”

Falana also called for the adoption of the recommendation of the National Conference that the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation should be separated from that of the Minister of Justice and those of the attorneys-general of various states be separated from that of the commissioners for justice.

Ayo-Oritsejafor

However, the president of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, yesterday broke the silence about the controversial $9.3m smuggled into South Africa by two Nigerians and an Israeli, using his private jet, saying his hands are clean.

Oritsejafor broke his silence during the National Executive Council meeting of CAN at the National Christian Centre, Abuja, saying he waited for today to brief the leaders of the church and explain his position on the issue, because he believes the primary institution he owes an explanation to is the church. Continue below to read what he said.

“I wish to assure you that I will not do anything to tarnish the image of Jesus Christ or compromise the divine standard of the church.

“As you are all aware, the media has been awashed in the past few days about an unfortunate incident involving the movement of funds from Nigeria to South Africa. In the unfortunate news reports, attempts have been made to link me directly with the transaction.

“So far, I have refrained from making any direct public response pending the time that I would have briefed the leaders of the church and explained my position on the issues to them.

“I believe that the primary institution that I owe any explanation to is the church.”

“At the risk of being seen to be defending myself, I wish to confirm to the distinguished leaders of the church that the Bombardier Challenger 601 aircraft in question is mine. The aircraft was presented to me as a gift by members of our congregation and ministry partners worldwide at my 40th anniversary of my call into the ministry.

“May I be permitted to stress that the aircraft was not given to me by the President of Nigeria, neither was it a settlement for any political favour or patronage.

“With the benefit of hindsight, the President of the country was a guest in our church during the anniversary celebration when the jet was presented to me. This has construed an implication that it was a gift from the President of the country.”

“The President of Nigeria has nothing to do with the gift of the aircraft. By the way, I still wonder why all those saying this cannot come out to show proof so that the matter can be put to rest once and for all. Let me say that this might be an issue of the court in the near future.”

“In order to ameliorate the cost of maintenance of the aircraft, I sought and got permit to allow the aircraft fly in and out of Nigeria.

“Based on this, I leased the aircraft on August 2, 2014, to a company to run it. It was the leasee that entered into an agreement with the people who carried out the transfer of funds. Having leased the aircraft to the Green Coast Produce Company Limited, any transaction undertaken with the aircraft can no longer be attached to me.

“Inasmuch as I am shocked and distressed by the incident, I wish to appeal to Christians in Nigeria to remember that a war has been waged against the Nigerian church. This war is being fought on many fronts and this unfortunate incident is another dimension in the assault against the church.

“It is clear that those who manipulated this conspiracy desire to create a schism in the church,” he said.

(Entertainment) Beyoncé Naked on Stage

Jay z wife, Beyonce goes naked  on stage at the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park on Saturday.

But she was able to cover up as a professional. No doubt Beyoncé is the ultimate pro, able to handle anything that comes her way on stage. So you’d have to figure she wouldn’t let a little wardrobe malfunction derail her surprise performance Saturday at the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park.

 Husband Jay Z was headlining the festival and Bey made an unannounced appearance to duet on “Holy Grail” and “Young Forever.” During some vigorous dancing, her blouse burst open.

b n j

Fortunately, Beyoncé’s skintone bra protected her from being completely exposed as Jay continued to rap, seemingly unaware of his wife’s mishap. As soon as Beyoncé realized the issue, she closed her top, and continued to dance with her left hand covering her chest, singing the chorus originally performed by Justin Timberlake. Her low-cut shirt continued to shift, however, requiring her to adjust it every minute or so during her 10-minute cameo. But Queen Bey made it through.

She’s had plenty of practice over the years. Just last March, while performing a Mrs. Carter World Tour date in Lisbon, Beyoncé made light of a stage tumble. As the introductory music for “XO” played, she slipped and fell to her knees at the top step. She quickly rose to her feet, enthusiastically jumped in the air, formed her arms into a cheerleader’s “Y” position, and hopped around a few times before moving on with the show.
