Have you ever picked a drink from a bathtub at a party??




This picture depicts a normal scene at a typical London house party in the 90's and early millennium - bathtub filled with drinks. However, i've never been able to pick a drink from one because the only thing i see in my mind's eye is the image of someone having a bath in there. The owner has even left the foot scrub stones sef! Yuck!! Or am i just too fussy?

LEMAR debunks death rumours - 'I'm alive'....

Bobby Brown asked to leave Whitney's funeral......




Bobby Brown was asked to leave Whitney Houston's funeral today ... after he got into an argument with Whitney's family over whether or not he could bring nine people into the church with him. Brown was spotted going into the church today in Newark, NJ ... but was seen leaving shortly thereafter.

According to TMZ sources, Brown was invited, plus two, but instead showed up with an entourage of nine people. We're told Bobby became upset when he found out they would not seat his whole party.

Our sources say Bobby wanted to sit with his daughter, Bobbi Kristina, but Whitney's family was not having it. We're told Rev. Jesse Jackson tried to smooth things over ... but to no avail.

Underwear bomber Abdulmutallab sentenced to life without parole.



Abdul Muttallab
A Nigerian man accused of trying to bomb a US-bound flight on Christmas Day 2009 has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 25, pleaded guilty to attempting to blow up a commercial plane as a would-be suicide mission for al-Qaeda.

His family quickly called on the US government to review the sentence. Abdulmutallab was badly burned when a bomb sewn into his underwear failed to detonate fully, prosecutors said.Almost 300 people were on the flight from Amsterdam to Detroit.

Is This The No1 Fashion Accessory of the rich and powerful in Nigeria??

THE PANAMA/FEDORA HAT
a.k.a Resource Control
A visiting friend of mine from Nigeria recently described Panama/Fedora hats as 'resource control' and currently the single most important fashion accessory for politicians or the oil rich from the south-south region. I have also noticed an increase in its wear at some London parties and corporate events. In fact, an original version from prestigeous London hat shops can set you back as much as between £200 - £500.

So my question is - When and why was the walking stick relegated to No2 position??

WHITNEY HOUSTON IS DEAD AT 48. (Found underwater in bathtub)

Whitney Houston - 1963 - 2012

WHITNEY HOUSTON IS DEAD - I was playing out at my st valentine gig in Milton Keynes when news filtered through that one of the greatest voices ever was no more. Whitney Houston was found dead in her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where she had been staying as a guest.

Her fantastic music career was overshadowed by substance abuse and her turbulent marriage to singer Bobby Brown. However, i'd like to always remember her for her great contibution to music and pray that her soul rests in peace.

Amen. 

HOW SHE DIED....

Another London Tube Racist Rant: Police Probe Woman's Tirade (Video)

Police are examining footage of a woman delivering a racist rant at Asian passengers on board the London Underground. The video, shot on a mobile phone, is the latest in a spate of recordings taken on public transport, and shows a white woman shouting “all f***king foreign s***heads” while passengers look on in shock.

The seven-minute rant was filmed on board a Central Line train between St Paul’s and Mile End stations and was posted on YouTube on January 24. The woman is seen sitting between two Pakistani men when she begins hurling abuse.

This clipper is the definition of 'Old School'. I remember having a few weekend cuts at home or the local barbers in Lagos in readiness for school. The good old manual clipper. Frequent use left a callous skin between the thumb and index finger of the barber. Nostalgia don hit me!! Need to visit naija soon!!

GLUE IN HAIR EXTENSIONS COULD HAVE CAUSED WOMAN's DEATH !!

Atasha Graham

A "fun-loving" clubber collapsed and died after an allergic reaction that could have been sparked by the glue in her hair extensions, an inquest heard. Atasha Graham, 34, had just returned home from a night out at 6.30am when she fell to the floor and stopped breathing. Southwark coroner's court heard her partner Fenton Johnson and a friend called an ambulance and tried to revive her while 999 operators gave instructions over the phone.

Paramedics arrived at the scene in Lee, south-east London, and Ms Graham was taken to University Hospital Lewisham, but could not be saved. The court was told she had suffered anaphylactic shock, which could have been caused by the latex glue she used to attach extensions to her natural hair.

WOULD YOU DATE A SINGLE PREGNANT WOMAN?

Pregnant woman

An incident happened in my teenage years that always puzzled me until i became a 'man' and understood life a bit more. A man living on my street then in Lagos, Nigeria threw out his tenant and 'occupied' or  started dating the man's pregnant partner. I later started hearing similar stories of men dating pregnant women (single or married) in varying circumstances. 

Many would argue that dating a married woman is one thing and dating a pregnant married woman is another. However, would you date 'single' pregnant woman (and before you all start asking, a woman can be pregnant and single -Yels).

SOUL TRAIN host DON CORNELIUS is dead - commits suicide

The late Don Cornelius
Don Cornelius, creator of the long-running and pioneering US TV dance show Soul Train, has been found dead at his LA home at the age of 75. A police officer responding to a report of a shooting found Cornelius at his Mulholland Drive home at around 4 am today (February 1).

He was pronounced dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre, said Los Angeles County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter. Music producer Quincy Jones led the tributes. "I am shocked and deeply saddened at the sudden passing of my friend, colleague, and business partner Don Cornelius," he said."Don was a visionary pioneer and a giant in our business. Before MTV there was Soul Train, that will be the great legacy of Don Cornelius. His contributions to television, music and our culture as a whole will never be matched."

Soul Train was one of the first US shows to showcase African-Americans prominently, and it introduced television audiences to such legendary artists as Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye and Barry White.
