The lady in the photo is Yanju Kusamotu Thomas. She was allegedly kidnapped on Sunday August 28 in Lagos. Yanju and her husband went to get fuel on that unfortunate day, and kidnappers double-crossed them and took Yanju. The husband managed to escape.

August Lesbian Party Postponed. #lobatan... Lol!

I read this story in Encomium magazine this morning and said to myself, you've got to share this Linda; just in case some members aren't aware, or some want to join *wink* *wink*.

Here's how Patrick Okon of Encomium mag wrote it...
The bi-monthly Lesbians Party, usually held in Uyo, the capital of Akwa-Ibom state, has been postponed. Usually it holds on the last Saturday of the month. The cancelled party was to hold on Saturday August 27, but one of the front-liners, a lawyer, is attending a legal workshop in Dominican Republic. A new date is yet to be fixed because the Matron, who incidentally is an Eket LGA-wife of one of the high and mighty in the state, will be unavoidably out of the country for the next few weeks.
Meanwhile, the babe handling the co-ordination for the next party is a certain ex-banker, turned Dubai trader.
BTW, all those females that have been making moves on my person, make una mind unaselves oh. I don't know the kind of vibes I've been putting out here, but let me state again, I love men and men only. I love gay people, I think everyone's sexual preference is their business, but please don't bring that ish to me. Can you guys imagine? Women telling me they love me when I've been seeking/praying/hoping for a man. #Notfair. *cry* lol. Three lesbian approach in the last two months...and they were so sure I would return their affection. #makawhynaw? Lol.

But please oh, do I act like a lesbian on this blog? Do you guys get that vibe?

Kate Henshaw, Jim Iyke comment on being dropped as Glo Ambassadors

News filtered out a few weeks ago that Globacom has dropped Kate Henshaw-Nuttal and Jim Iyke as their brand ambassadors, but the two say they are not aware of the new development. Kate had no comment on the matter when approached by journalists, Jim Iyke said he only heard it in the news, that they've not been officially notified.

So basically what happened was that Glo released the names of their ambassadors to the press and in the list, Sunny Neji, Kate and Jim Iyke's names were missing and new names were added. Globacom Marketing Communications manager, Onyeakachi Nwosu then said that 'anybody whose name doesn't appear on the list is definitely not a Glo Ambassadors'

Eh, but at least inform them properly naw, abi?
