Naija Gossip

I haven't given y'all Naija gossip in a while...a few people told me not to write stuff about other people I wasn't sure of...I saw reason, but what the hell, what's life without a little gossip right? So here's a little gossip for u&u. But you know what they say about gossip? Don't believe everything you read...enjoy!

Basketmouth robbed in London
Rumour has it that dreadlocked top comedian, Basketmouth was robbed of $3, 00, his luggage, international passport on his recent visit to London. They said he came back to Naija with the help of our High commission and a friend over there. Hmmm...those of you who live in London...did you hear this gist?

Ex-actor Ernest Asuzu in Kirikiri prison
Troubled actor, Ernest Asuzu is currently in Kirikiri. Why? On Monday July 23rd 2007, he went to visit a friend who was owing him N5, 000, at barbing salon at Okota. When he demanded for his money, and his friend couldn't provide it, Ernest destroyed valuables in the salon worth thousands of Naira, after which he was arrested by the police and prosecuted. And because there was no surety on ground to meet requirements for his bail, the actor was transfered and remanded at Kirikiri Maximum prison on Wednesday July 25th. Recall that he destroyed property worth millions at MITV in 2005, that he was locked up for? And the fight he got into at Murphis Nite club in Surulere, where he was beaten mercilessly? He was also sent to the psychiatric ward in yaba sometime last year because his behaviour seemed sick...this is what he had to say some days ago from Kirikiri prison, about his problems
Ernest "It's my enemies again. They want to silence me by all means. Please I want all Nigerians to come to my aid and remember me in their prayer. Each time I keep off the public eye, I won't have any problem, but immediately I make any move to relaunch myself I become a different person. I'm beginning to think that somebody is behind this, because immediately I entered the police station, my eyes cleared. When they read my charges, I broke down in tears as per how and when did this happen?"
I feel sorry for this guy...some people are alleging that an ex actress girlfriend did something to him...don't know the real truth, but I hope God comes to his rescue before he wrecks himself finally.

Mike Ezuronye and Nonso Diobi at war. Rumour has it that this one-time best friends have turned sworn enemies because of a certain lady called Ebiere, who is a student of the Rivers State University of Science and Technology. The girls was supposedly dating Nonso but cunningly got Mike's no from Nonso, called Mike and started an affair with him. Heartbroken Nonso had to part ways with Mike and Ebiere, who rumour also has it didn't care about Nonso's feelings. Mike is said to have introduced Ebiere to his mum and the relationship seems serious...the rumour carriers even speculated marriage between the two lovebirds but remember what I said...don't believe everything you read.


Ben's baby mama joins company
I'm sure not too many of you know that Ben has a love-child? Well, he does. The news now is that the mother of Ben Murray Bruce's love child, Tina Vukor Quarshie, an ex-banker, now works with the Silverbird Group. She is said to be one of the top managers and her coming has not gone down well with some members of the Murray Bruce family.

Paul Obazele Beats Zeb Ejiro

Movie producer sets his Hummer Jeep on fire. Arinze Egesimba, the man who runs Mega Movies, set his Hummer H3 Jeep, worth over 11 million, on fire during the production of his movie titled "Yankee Girls". The movie features Stella Damasus, Omotola, RMD...watch out for that movie

Olumide Ogunlesi, Model Charles Oguntoye' s wives deliver
Funmi, the beautiful wife of Olumide Ogunlesi, the son of Chief Fola and Idowu Ogunlesi, who got married a few months ago ago, gave birth to a baby boy in London some days ago. Also, top model turned designer, Charles Oguntoye's beautiful wife gave birth to a bouncing baby boy some days back...big congrats to them.

Eddy vs Kenny St Brown
Recall I told you sometime ago about the break up between Ex-Remedy member, Eddy Montana and Gospel crooner, Kenny St Brown? Well, the lady accused her estranged husband of wife battery, adultery, etc...well Eddie replied her this week by granting interviews with most soft sell mags in Naija...this man talked too much about the whole drama...here's a little of the things he had to say about his wife and why his marriage packed up

Do you see any hope of a reconciliation? Eddy "Hardly! I will always love Kenny but I don't think that as a right thinking person, I should mend fences with her. Any woman that would pack out of her home that has two kids and she professes to be a christian, is not a wife or a mothers. She never wanted to build a family with me, she carried an Ogungbe passport in my house for 3yrs. It took my stubbornness to make her change her name from Ogungbe to Brown. Her family married her off because she was getting old but she wasn't proud of me or the Brown name"

They allege you beat her often
Eddy "That's a brand new lie. I never beat her."
Why did you two quarrel often?
Eddy "It was all due to her infidelity, she was very unfaithful. Are you aware that she dated D1?, Kingsley Ike, and one Bayo at Ajao Estate...long explanation...let's cut it short"

Whats Kenny's relationship with Essence(R&B singer)
Eddy "I started getting uncomfortable with her relationship with my wife after I walked in to find both of them in the bathroom naked, This is a woman who doesn't like me to see her nakedness. What were they doing?"

They also accused you of infidelity
Eddy "Yes, I'm a man, which man would not look for pleasure outside when he's denied it at home? My wife denied me of sex for 8 months. She only came to me for sex when she needed it. That was to have kids."

They said you made your house help pregnant? Eddy "That's not true. My wife and I found out who impregnated the girl"

What's your relationship with Keke Ogungbe
"Keke has never liked me. When I married his sister in 2000, he gave me N25, 000 as a wedding present, and he didn't contribute a dime to my wedding, neither did he come for my children's naming" bla bla bla

Long interview, painful and amusing to read...the wahala with marriage sha! Oh, BTW, Essence denies being a lesbian.

Abike Marries Segun Erewa
Abuja lawmaker, Honourable Abike Dabiri got married to her heartthrob, Segun Erewa on Thursday July 26th, 2007, at a private gathering in a residence in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos. And on Sunday 29th July 2007, another wedding took place at her father's residence in Surulere...the couple met two years ago in South Africa. Congratulations to the couple.

He had two other wives who gave him children...long story...too much drama...moving on...

Gists from Nigeria Model Award (Held yesterday, July 28th) and Naija entertainment news and gossip coming soon!

Feeling unhappy.

I had my Style Night last night, it was beautiful...as beautiful as Surulere would allow it to be...no area boys, enough parking space, great performances, the best models, a large turn-out, etc tres fabulous. I'll post pictures from the show as soon as I get it from the photographer...

There's something I want to talk about today, I've been meaning to talk about this for a while but for some reason, I just never got to it but I got motivated last night after spending some part of the night with an unhappy woman.

The feeling of unhappiness. This is a feeling most of us have been through at one point or the other in our lives...it's only natural for us to feel down sometimes, but it becomes unhealthy when we let that feeling linger on for a long time.

This lady I spent time with last night made me feel really bad...I have seen unhappy people in my life but never one who has lost all hope that things will get better. I won't go into details of her personal issues, but I know there are several people like her around. People who are unfulfilled, people who feel under-achieved, people who are overwhelmed with sadness, sometimes for no reason, people who simply hate their lives.

I have been through periods of sadness...oh, I have...you know how you can be so unhappy that you fall sick? So unhappy you don't want to get up from bed? You don't want to get dressed, you don't care about your appearance? You care about nothing, you feel like you have nothing to live for, nothing to look forward to...sometimes you feel like your world is over...you're hurting so deeply for a reason or maybe no particular reason...you just can't tell for sure why you feel like giving up on life.

Maybe because you feel like a failure because all your friends are married and you do not even have a boyfriend.
Maybe you feel small because your younger siblings or friends have good jobs, drive big cars, nice houses and you have nothing to show for your years on earth...
Maybe sometimes you hate yourself for not fighting enough to make your life better.
Maybe your marriage/relationship isn't working out very well and you blame yourself for it's failure.
Maybe you have a job you don't like but stick to it because you feel like you do not have a choice
Maybe you are a man in his forties and can't afford to take care of yourself how much more a family, so you strike out getting married.
Maybe people who met you in your line of work have since surpassed you in terms of achievement.
Maybe your best friend is married to a rich man with lovely kids and you're married to a poor man with kids you can't even take care of.
Maybe you've been married for years without any fruit of the womb.
Maybe your husband is cheating on you or beating you and it's killing your soul
Maybe your parents are very poor and you are looking for means to elevate their status but can't find a way to do so.
Maybe a family member died because you couldn't afford to pay for a doctor
Maybe you can't find a job
Maybe you work ten times harder than the next guy, but he has more to show for his work than you do
Maybe everything you lay hands on is never successful
Maybe you lost someone you loved deeply and you wonder if you'll ever find love again, or maybe someone you love left you and it makes you feel like you're not worthy.
Maybe you want to be a model but you get turned down at every casting you go to.
Maybe you've been in the acting business for years but have never gone beyond support roles, while newcomers get lead roles.
Maybe all men who come into your life never stay
Maybe your parents are constantly fighting
Maybe there's no love in your home
Maybe people around you just don't like you
Maybe people spread false rumours about you
Maybe you can't take care of your family like you want to
Maybe people only come around you because of what they can get from you not because they really care
Maybe that child you thought was yours, isn't yours after all

I can go on and on...There are a million and one reasons to be unhappy...and trust me I know about unhappiness...I've been through it...maybe not the worse kind...but I've had moments when I just wanted to give up on myself and God.

If you are going through unhappiness presently, what can I say to you? It will pass? Forget your worries? Don't worry, be happy? Consult a professional? Turn to God?

There are several solutions books and articles give, but we all know it's all easier said than done. So what words can I give you now?

This is what I have to say to you...
No matter how bad you have it, there's someone who has it worse than you.
Never compare yourself with the man next to you...if you do that then it means you're questioning God.
Always remember that even though God created us equally, he gave us different talents, blessings, visions and very different paths to follow...that is why we have billionaires, millionaires and people who can't even afford three square meals a day...we are all different. God made it so.
If you're unhappy because you're unmarried...how many of your married friends can you truly say are happily married?
If your job is unfulfiling...why are you still there? What's stopping you from going after your true passion...if others can have their dream jobs, why not you? Have you even made an effort to go after that job that you crave more than anything else? I know people sometimes give up even before trying...don't do that to yourself.
So your friends have big houses, good jobs, big cars? So what? Did Jesus have all that when he was on earth? Do you want to measure your life with that? Those things don't even bring happiness...so why are you stressing over it?
You were dumped, rejected. So? If Jesus can be rejected...who are you?
You think he's happy, she's happy? How do you know for sure that they really are...how do you know you are not even in a better state of mind than they are...people pretend a lot. Why compare yourself?
Your business isn't working out? What about those who don't even have a job? If your business is failing, re-strategise.
You don't have a child/a partner...have you ever heard of the term 'God's time'?
Maybe you think they are better than you? How are they better than you? What is it they can do that you can't do?
That relationship didn't work out? Maybe it wasn't meant to.

Have you ever wondered why people commit suicide? Because they lost HOPE. When you loose hope, it means you've given up on God...God won't give up on you but he'll let you go...till you find your way back to him...those who never find their way back end up forever unhappy, some even kill themselves.

It is when you think your present is bad but you have hope that tomorrow will be better or even great...that you can begin to appreciate life.

There are ways you can find or increase happiness in your life...here's how...
Choose to be happy...it's not that hard...just tell yourself you deserve to be.
Be grateful for everything you have...no matter how small it is...there's so much to be grateful for...you're alive aren't you? You're healthy aren't you? Have you been to a hospital or a morgue recently? See the way people die every minute? You need to start counting your blessings and thank God for still keeping you alive.
Surround yourself with people who love you...your family, especially your mum...let her be your best friend...no one can love you more than your mum...not even your husband.
Don't take life too seriously. Always have it at the back of your mind that one day your life on earth will be over...so why spend precious little time being unhappy?
Be nice to people, help people as much as you can...you will feel blessed when everyone around you is grateful to you for one reason or the other.
Get busy with a job, a hobby...there's a a lot of satisfaction in feeling competent...and there's no greater joy than to do work that you love.
Express yourself...don't bottle things up...talk about your problems...I have always believed that talking is the fastest way to healing.

Again, I can go on and on but after all said and done, it's really up to us. We have one life to live, why not live it to the maximum? I've been through feelings of unhappiness and happiness, and the distance between those two feelings is wide apart. One makes you hate yourself, people around you and life itself, while the other makes you feel alive and beautiful. Why not choose the latter?

Resolve today to put your problems behind you...don't give the devil the upper hand in your life...let go of everything and everyone that make you unhappy. And always remember that amazing things happen to people who expect amazing things to happen.

But most importantly...get closer to God. If you have him in your life...you need nothing else. He made you and he does not care about the circumstances of your birth, background, education, or your past...Just go to him and talk to him about your problems and watch how he'll turn your life around. He will give you a fulfilling future...because he loves you too much not to.

I wish you all the very best that life has to offer. And may you find fulfilment and happiness beyond your wildest imagination!

God bless. Linda

Top 10 cars of 2007 + Movies to watch + Did You Know + Where are these guys?

The cars you are about to view will probably make some of you hunger so badly for some serious mooooney! They are the Supercars of 2007...May I drive one of these cars...or something close to it, in my lifetime...amen! lol....check them out!
1. Audi R8
Top speed: 187mph - 0-60mph: 4.5 seconds Max power: 420BHP
Price: £76,825 For an extra £830, the R8 comes with seats that adjust electronically in every direction. The suspension system adjusts itself to suit the road conditions. Even though Audi is frantically knocking out 15 R8s a day, you won't be able to get one until mid-2008!


2. SSC Ultimate Aero TT
Top speed: 240mph - 0-60mph: 2.78 seconds Max power: 1,183BHP

Price: £400,000 Although its official top speed is 240mph, SSC reckons the Aero TT will actually do 270mph. If this is true, it would make it the fastest car in the world, ahead of the 252mph Bugatti Veyron. However, when it was tested in Nevada earlier this year, bad weather meant it "only" reached 221mph. It's power is awesome. When the driver changed into sixth gear at 190mph, the wheels span.

3. Porsche 911 GT3 RS
Top speed: 193mph - 0-60mph: 3.6 seconds Max power: 415BHP
Price: £88,000 The GT3 RS has the same power as the normal GT3 but, at 1,375kg, it is 20kg lighter. This means the RS is 0.1 secs faster than a standard GT3 from 0-60. The GT3 RS comes in either black or silver but, as an option, you can also get it in bright orange or green.


4. Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera
Top speed: 196mph - 0-60mph: 3.8 seconds Max power: 522BHP
Price: £150,000 With a 5.0-litre V10 that produces a healthy 522bhp, the Superleggera comes with 10bhp more than the standard Gallardo. It is also much lighter than the standard model because most of the bodywork is carbon fibre and most of the glass has been replaced with lighter clear plastic. The braking's a bit better, too - from 60mph to standstill, this car stops one metre before the standard version.


5. Beck LM800
Top speed: 210mph - 0-60mph: 3.2 seconds Max power: 650BHP - Price: £310,000 It's made in Switzerland, the home of watches and cuckoo clocks. It's made using the lightest materials on earth to improve performance. The 4.2-litre V8 produces 650bhp, but special editions - 850bhp and 1,000bhp - can be ordered.


6. Dodge Viper SRT-10
Top speed: 190mph - 0-60mph: 4.0 seconds Max power: 600BHP

Price: £65,000 The new Dodge Viper has the most ridiculous engine the car's ever had - a brand new 8.4-litre V10! It's not what you'd call shy on the power front either, pushing out a monumental 600bhp! Massive 14in Brembo brake discs mean the SRT-10 can go from 60mph to standstill in under 100 feet!



7. Ferrari 612 Scaglietti 60th Anniversary
Top speed: 196mph - 0-60mph: 4.2 seconds Max power: 540BHP
Price: £130,000 This limited-edition Scaglietti was designed for Ferrari's 60th anniversary. Only 60 will be made. The coolest new edition is what Ferrari calls the "electrochromic glass roof". Basically, it's a clear roof in which the darkness can be adjusted at the touch of a button. How cool is that?



8. Locus Plethore
Top speed: 205mph - 0-60mph: 3.5 seconds Max power: 750BHP

Price: £140,000 Canada's first supercar for 30 years uses a Chevrolet V8 engine that can be tuned up to 1,300bhp. It's rumoured that the new model of the car will feature a central driving position. Fancy one on your drive? Well, the good news is that it'll set you back a pretty reasonable £140,000.


9. McLaren Mercedes SLR 722
Top speed: 209.4mph - 0-60mph: 3.5 seconds Max power: 650BHP
Price: £350,000 The 722 is the even faster version of the already quick SLR. It's got 650bhp, and it's 2mph faster! The "722" is a nod to the Mille Miglia race of 1955, when Stirling Moss (ask your dad) won in an SLR that carried the number 722. Before its release this year, potential customers were invited to test the car at the Paul Ricard Circuit where most F1 teams do their testing.


10. Aston Martin Vanquish Ultimate Edition
Top speed: 201mph - 0-60mph: 4.7 seconds Max power: 520BHP - Price: £182,095 The Ultimate Edition is a slightly tweaked version of the already amazing Vanquish S. Only 40 of these badboys were made, all of which were snapped up within weeks of their release. The main change is the colour - this version comes in Ultimate Black, the only Aston it's used on. Customers are able to request a stick-shift gearbox, as opposed to the normal paddleshift one.


I know most guys are already dreaming of the day they can even touch the wheels, tyres etc of any of these cars...dreams come true sha! lol
