How do you describe this kind of death?

At least 4 people have been confirmed dead in Pastor T.B. Joshua’s Synagogue Church Of All Nations in Spintex Road, Ghana.

The tragic incident occurred after a stampede ensued at the church today during the distribution of free holy water.

 Greater Accra Police Public Relations Officer DSP Freeman Tetteh confirmed the death to Joy News and said the bodies of the deceased have been deposited at the 37 and Police Hospital mortuaries.

Some 13 persons were also severely injured during the incident.

Thousands of people had flocked the church in pursuit of healing, spiritual and financial breakthrough.

The holy water, to many TB Joshua followers is acclaimed to be the panacea to the many spiritual afflictions.

Ini Edo’s Marriage In Trouble

ini edoAccording to Global News magazine; in a typical African society like ours, there are certain norms and behaviour expected of married women, and there are those looked upon as taboos especially when the women are not in company of their husbands.

It is therefore surprising that more than three years after she tied the knot, Ini Edo Ehiagwina is still of the belief that she is still that explosive single lady.

These days, Ini Edo has been caught behaving more irresponsibly than when she was still a spinster. The plump dark-skinned actress who got married to Philip Ehiagwina, a US-based Nigerian divorcee has not come to terms Continue reading

Half of a Yellow Sun: Most Expensive Nollywood Movie

Half of a Yellow Sun

In case you don’t know, transcendent novel of many descriptive triumphs – Half of a Yellow Sun, a book written by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has been adopted into a movie.

The movie was shot at Tinapa Film Studio, Cross River State, and in the United Kingdom.

The yet to be released film, directed by Biyi Bandele, has most of its cast and crew flown from abroad. The cast comprised Britons and Nigerians such as Chiwetel Ejiofor of Kinky Boots, American Gangster, 2012, Salt; Thandie Newton (Mission: Impossible II, Crash, The Pursuit of Happiness); Anika Noni Rose (Dreamgirls, The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, For Coloured Girls); Joseph Mawle (Women in Love, Game of Thrones); John Boyega (Attack the Block); Onyeka Onwenu, Nigerian singer and actress; Genevieve Nnaji and Zack Orji.

Before the emergence of ‘Half of a Yellow Sun,’ ‘Tango with Me’ produced by Mahmoud Ali-Balogun, ranked the most expensive film. Shot with the latest Kodak 35mm camera, ‘Tango with Me’ costs over N50 million to make, says Ali-Balogun. In a bid to make a difference in an industry populated by poorly produced films, Balogun travelled to Bulgaria to master film technology. The end product of the trip was an outstanding film that ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’ has rivalled.

The movie is said to become the most expensive Nollywood movie ever worth about N1.27billion in production cost, new reports claim.

 

 

Atiku begins 2015 campaign by giving shoes to the shoe-less

In preparation for his 2015 massive campaign, former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar gives out shoes to the shoe-less.

Reasons behind his motive cannot to be totally ascertained as at the time of this post, but it is believed that he, Mr Atiku is trying to give back to Nigerians what the incumbent president deceitfully took away during his campaign.

But the questions on the lips of so many still remains, should Atiku provide shoes for the shoe-less, will the shoes cater for  more 100 million people? Since it is believed that 85% of Nigerians live below $1 (N150.00) per day.

The political routine in Nigeria still remains on the table of ‘give-and-take’ i.e. if he gives shoes to the shoe-less and they vote him into power, you can be sure he would take back the shows 2-weeks after his swearing-in.

Alhaji Atiku, please be careful what you wish you wish for.

Nigeria’s Most Popular Baby Daddies

As award-winning, singer Tuface Idibia, exits the singles club, the world is watching the lips of some other ‘eligible’ artistes. Singer Innocent Idibia, aka Tuface, will happily tie the nuptial knots with his heartthrob of many years, Nollywood actress Annie Macaulay in Dubai on Saturday (tomorrow).

For the couple, who are both stars in their own rights, the much-vaunted wedding is the climax of a relationship that has somewhat managed to survive many storms and crises. Before Tuface made the all-important decision to walk down the aisle with Annie, many music fans had literally concluded that he was not marriageable. With about five children from three women, most single ladies had stopped dreaming of grabbing him for keeps.
For a while, the talented singer was the butt of many jokes rolling down the lips of every stand-up comedian in the country. Some of them even referred to him by funny pseudonyms. They called him ‘Father Abraham’. But all that now belongs to the past.
As the hour draws near, Tuface and his bride will be counting their blessings and looking forward to a future filled with marital bliss. Unfortunately the same cannot yet be said about his colleagues who have yet to summon the courage to quit bachelorhood.Interestingly some of these artistes are currently walking the same path that Tuface has just abandoned.

RE: My Second Marriage is a Compensation from God

Emotionally bound and conscience trapped

It is common place that the best way to swing pendulums from one marriage to another and keep going with a broadly expressed smile that hides under the disguise of happiness is to become a Celeb. Going by the rate at which Nigerian socialites jump from one bed to another under the pretence of pursuit for happiness and someone to “love”, I can only but say that some role models are not worth having.

I want to quickly build on a role and pattern of a known actress in the emerging Western-Nigeria movie industry. She is someone we all know, and am sure several boarding (and wannabe) actors and actresses would have mirrored and patterned their lives and careers unto.

It is nothing but shame for a woman to like, admire, crush, fall in love and marry another woman’s husband; and a greater gross disgrace to not only admit the act but also to add that marriage the said man is a compensation from God after the first marriage failed. But the question the woman has failed to ask herself is; if this second marriage (which she claims is a compensation from God) fails and the need arises for her to shift to a third, will it still be a compensation from God?

And what example will she be making for her children to model by engaging in the act act and practice of husband snatching. The children might innocently agree with their mother now because she would only explain to them the perspective that makes the man not worthy to be their father, and hence the reason why he is worthy to be tagged ‘ex-husband’. No wonder mother earth differentiates a woman from a wife, and a wife from a mother.

And now, what do you call a man who for self gratifying and ego-centred reasons leaves his original wife with no prior notice or legal documents, requesting or seeking a divorce  to marry another woman. And the height of the annoyance, he claims 65 pastors told him to marry the voluptuously-endowed actress, that it was never his plans to do so. It was also confirmed by Bride Number 2 (Foluke Daramola) that Bride Number One has not been divorced. And she still went ahead to join the list is an imperative proof that she has a hand in the failed state of things between Bride Number One and her husband

There’s been several reactions and response to this modern-day sacrilege committed by both Foluke Daramola and Kayode Salako. I have  just three to give and that will be all for the mean time,

  1. Any man who leaves his first love and mother of his children for another woman does not deserve to be called a husband by the new woman or father by his children. He has by so doing said there is no law that bind one man to his wife and children i.e. you can walk-out any relationship when you are tired (when you are tired of fried rice, you can shift your curve to jollof rice)
  2. A man who walks out of his first marriage is capable of making the second wife miserable because his motives are egocentric. He does not care who is hurt so long as life goes on for him
  3. In life, there is a law described as The Law of Compensation (Karma). One of the law’s features states that ‘the treatment you met to others will be meted unto you, several times more.

I would have love us to also cross-examine another character in this conception of emotional-matrimonial-misplaced-priority, but I would leave hers till I very verify my claims and findings further.

Till then… This is my confession.
