HILARIOUS: Witches in Swaziland Banned from Flying above 150 Metres

This is hilarious!
Swaziland has launched a crackdown on high-flying witches after banning them from hovering above 150metres. Anyone caught flying their broomstick above the height limit faces arrest and a hefty R500,000 fine, the country’s Civil Aviation Authorities said this week.
According to the Corporate Affairs Sabelo Dlamini ‘A witch on a broomstick should not fly above the [150-metre] limit,’. The new aviation law was highlighted after a private investigator was caught flying a helicopter equipped with a video camera to gather surveillance information.
Witchcraft is taken seriously in Swaziland where many people believe in the power of black magic. Last year a leading Swazi MP called for a hike in tax paid by witch doctors to help ease the cash-strapped country’s financial woes.

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.

 

 

Pics of the Day

Building Upon Destruction, Culled from RD REVILO

Seeing this picture made me giggle, but with a frown in my heart. The practical manners humans have developed for mis-behavioural decency cannot be over-emphasized. I can guarantee you one thing, if any guy, dude, boy (male gender) is caught dressing like this in the streets of Lagos, Nigeria, I can  assure you such a ‘fella’ would have been seriously dealt with before the mere consideration of a spiritual angle.

To acclaimed developed (1st world) countries. I don’t know if the paradigm shift of is declining or moving forward. I don’t want to believe its a move back to the ‘then’ Garden of Eden.
