For the benefit of those who don’t know about what led to the above picture, here’s a hint.
The Notting Hill Carnival is an annual event that since 1966 has taken place on the streets of Notting Hill, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London, UK each August, over three days (the August bank holiday Monday and the two days beforehand). It is led by members of the West Indian community. The carnival has attracted around one million people in the past years, making it one of the largest street festivals in the world.

A 48-year-old man claims to be Jesus and that he came back to save the world.
Phetole Selepe, from Dan village, South Africa, claims he is Jesus Christ and was sent by his ancestors to save the world.
Selepe has been living on the banks of the Letaba River which is located in the Eastern Limpopo Province of South Africa, since 2004, where he performed his rituals.
Although he was arrested more than eight times, the local municipality was unable to evict him. He seems to be “untouchable,” as he claims to be protected by a large water snake.
He thinks he can bring people back from the dead and that one day he will lead his people to Canaan and wash their sins. Selepe, who goes by many different identities, said he used one of his names, Molalatladi, to control the world. Continue reading →
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.
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.
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.
