Iyanya and Yvonne Nelson -Only A Douchebag Wants Just Your Waist

What do you do when all a man you have fallen in love with wants from you is your waist? That was the dilemma the sender of one of the last Dear Myne posts found herself in. A lot of the comments told her to either tell the man off, or just move on. Some called any guy who wants a woman just for sex a douchebag, and I agree, somewhat.

That is, only to the extent that he deceives the woman into thinking he wants more with the pretense of a relationship. Where both the man and the woman go in knowing what they both want out of their relationship, and it mutually agreed as friends with benefits, then there should be no crying foul when things go pear-shaped and one person starts catching feelings.

Obviously, I may not be privy to all the details of Iyanya and Yvonne Nelson's relationship beyond what they put out to the public and I find myself leaning strongly towards Yvonne's side on this "he said, she said" saga. In an interview with BellaNaija recently, Yvonne Nelson answered the following questions about her relationship with Iyanya, about how he may have cheated on her, but definitely betrayed her expectations and broke her heart;

Sometime last year, you were quite emotional on Twitter when you supposedly broke up with a Nigerian music star. That incident has been shrouded with lots of cover-ups. Could you tell me what really happened?
I think it’s time my fans get to know the whole truth so I’m going to let it all out. I dated one person here, he’s in the industry. There were too many lies in the relationship. I found out a whole lot of things and I just felt like he took advantage of me.

Why did you go on Twitter to express your emotions?
I’m human, I’m not like a robot or anything. I just wanted the whole world to know what I was going through and I just wanted them to know that I was done with the relationship.

I had an interview with Iyanya shortly after that Twitter rant and his words were “She didn’t mention my name so I don’t know anything about it. I’ve never told anyone that I was dating anybody.” Aren’t we talking about the same person here?
He would say that because he was wrong. His team is also trying to protect his fan base and I don’t blame him for denying anything. It’s him and his career, that’s OK.

How long did the two of you date and how would you describe the relationship?
We dated for 7 to 8 months. We had something and I thought it was special, like he was a wonderful guy but it was all lies. He had other girls and other things he was doing. Aside the actress that was in the picture, there were a lot more. That is how bad it is. We were in a relationship and he lied throughout and he was able to do all those things because I wasn’t living in Nigeria. But aside from the distance, I feel if you’re a genuine person and you’re loyal, you would still not do that.

Most people only got to know that you and Iyanya were dating after you broke up. Were you deliberately being secretive about it?
I also don’t believe in putting my relationships in the faces of people. We both had our careers and were trying to protect our fan base and that’s cool. But if you go through my Instagram page, you’d see a couple of pictures of us together. I wasn’t shy about anything but he could not say he’s dating Yvonne Nelson because he had different people he was seeing so it was very hard for him to bring it out.

What did the experience teach you?
There are some things that you don’t get to learn in school; people can’t advice you, you won’t even listen. You just have to experience it to learn. I have no regrets that I went through it, it would have happened anyway. We are all human beings. We fall in love once in a while but if it doesn’t work out, that’s OK.

How do you feel about him now and what message would you like to pass on to him if you had the chance?
Iyanya is such an amazing person but I just feel he needs to be more honest and be a man of his words. It’s not good if he takes advantage of women. My Mum always says any man who takes advantage of women won’t end up well. It’s Karma, it’s going to come back to you. He should treat women fairly and he should be an honest person. It’s been a while though, I haven’t seen him. He is doing amazing things in his career and I wish him luck.

Well, instead of acting the gentleman, either wishing her luck too, or simply keeping quiet about the whole matter, Iyanya on a freestyling session in the video below, replied her thus;

Yvonne Nelson, I lost your medicine. She called that she's coming over and I ride her like a jangolova. All I want is your waist, no emotions, no tears, no letters, no love, no nothing....

... All I want is your waist, she ain't even know it. She brought emotions.
Call me biased, or making rash judgments without the complete picture, but I think he's a douchebag! Whether or not there were crossed wired before and during the relationship about what each party wanted, I think at this stage it's beyond crass to be singing about riding someone like a jangolova.

All I can say is, women shine your eyes for these kind of man. SMH.

Queens of Boobs In Nollywood

Apart from their amazing character interpretations in home videos, their extra-large mammary gland coupled with their beauty remain their identity, and one of the qualities that make many hearts flutter in admiration whenever their faces grace movie posters, film jackets and T.V screens. Though many of them are naturally endowed, some are said to have had boobs job.

Jennifer Eliogu

This Nollywood actress will definitely pick an award at any big, bold and beautiful screen idol awards event; the jelly-jenny of the English genre of Nollywood is also one of the very few talents blessed with extra-large sized mammary gland. Though, the size of her “mammaries” might have not won her many seductive roles in movies, Jennifer would never go unnoticed with such a rare gift of nature.

Foluke Daramola

She is another pretty and brainy star of the Nigerian movie industry. Boobs size has become part of the identities of Flaky as fondly called by her friends. Though, the dark-complexioned International Relations graduate of the Obafemi Awolowo University might not belong to the class of those who flaunt what they have, the rare gift of nature which is an added advantage whenever she plays seductive roles in movies, always get her noticed where ever she goes.

Grace Everly

Grace will ever be grateful to God for those big sized twin-towers, which are probably among those qualities that fetched her most roles in the movie industry. Apart from her good interpretations of characters in home videos, Grace Everly who now lives in Germany will definitely rank high among the boobs queens of the Nigerian movie industry.

Ronke Ojo

Bold and blunt best describe the personality of this fair-complexioned Yoruba Movie star who has earned herself a sobriquet, Ronke Oshodi Oke, because of her extra-large ‘twin towers’. The chubby cheeked screen siren known for her sexy roles in home videos knows her onion in the movie industry and is always proud of what she’s got.

Tayo Odueke

Her seductive role of a wayward girl in the popular old flick ‘Sikiratu Sindodo’ actually fetched her fame, face, and name she needed to be on top of her game in the movie industry.

Sikiratu Sindodo, as now fondly called, is frontally endowed and the Yoruba actress doesn’t fail whenever opportunity permits itself to display her over sized ‘twin-towers’.

Bimbo Akintola

Bold, beautiful and brainy are those qualities that stand her out among her peers, but seductive roles in most home videos have earned the ebony-complexioned Nollywood star a movie bad girl reputation. Bimbo might have over the time charmed her fans, most especially male, with her carriage coupled with the way she often displays her heavy twin towers in movies.

Bimbo Akinsanya

She actually came to the lime-light with the Yoruba flick, Omo Oloja, where she played a lead role of a first class ‘call-girl’. Bimbo Akinsanya’s acting skill, and probably her well-shaped big bosom which she usually parades at will, have won her lot of sensual roles.

Cossy Orjiakor

Whether you like it or not, irrespective of how other “boobs” may be Boobsie Cossy will definitely pick the crown as the topmost queen among the queens of boobs in the Nigerian entertainment industry. Till date the cat-voiced star actress-cum-singer with extra-sized ‘twin-towers’ has a unique manner of packaging and parading her boobs in home videos and at events, which always leaves many scrambling to their feet to catch a glimpse. These are some one of the secrets which make Cossy’ still hold tight to the throne as the “Queen of Boobs”.

Ayo Adesanya

The sultry tube queen also is also blessed excessively at the front-side. Apart from her sensual roles in both Yoruba and English home videos, Ayo Adesanya remains one of the most gifted screen sirens, who do not hide the natural gift of nature. The lively star usually flaunts her big ‘mammary’ without caring whose horse is gored.

Chioma Toplis

Despite her big twin towers, this sexy Nollywood star actress loves wearing provocative dresses which always display her big boobs. Chioma had played lots of sensual roles in home videos and the highly gifted screen goddess would not even mind going nude if her husband permits.

Cynthia Agholor

This bold and blunt rising screen star doesn’t pretend that she got boobs to flaunt!
Though, size of Cynthia’s well shaped twin-tower might seen her losing some points to the likes of Cossy Orjiako and Ronke Ojo, this only child of her parents will definitely take a comfortable position among the actress, who loves flaunting their busty boobs.

Moreover, contrary to haters belief that the star of numerous hit flicks like Villager Toasters, Never Too late, Year 2000, First Love, and many others, seeks attention with her bust flaunting style, the bubbly belle belong to the school of thought which says, "If you have it, flaunt it!

Karen Igho

It’s no doubt that the U.K-trained model cum actress has made name as the first Nigerian belle to win the popular TV reality show, Big Brother Africa, Karen’s boobs job that had earned her a place among the big breasted babes of Nollywood, is one of the reasons some movie makers have been on her trail.

Despite the fact that Karen is unhappy with slanderous comments from the critics, who always judge her by physical appearances, all eyes seem to be always on her crafted twin-tower.

Adaora Ukoh

The big frame of this screen goddess compliment what she gathered at the front. While big, bold and brainy best describe her personality, Adaora’s big mammary is another reference quality among her numerous fans.

Although, Adaora’s ‘things’ may be small when compare to few others , the gifted actress who said to have pocketed millions of naira to go bald in movie, loves flaunting what she got.

Ronke Odusanya

Call her Miss Endowed; you may not have been wrong. Not only that this rising star actress is frontally blessed, Ronke’s butt can also make men go gaga. No wonder her sobriquet, ‘Flaky Ididowo’, which she got from one of her numerous flicks, fits perfectly well.

The famous girlfriend of Fuji music sensation, Pasuma, rarely bares it all in public, Ronke’s big boobs, have earned her more male fans and secret admirers.

Chioma Okoye

This is another well endowed rising star actress. Talk of being big, busty, bold and daring, Chioma Okoye, has them all in large quantity. Chioma has over the time carved a niche for herself in the Nigerian movie industry with her very daring roles, which often make her male admirers ask for more. Although, Chioma might be on the quite side, she always grabs the opportunity to flaunt what she got whenever she feels like.

Cynthia Agholor - I prefer white men to Nigerian men

Nollywood actress Cythia is a woman who knows what she wants. In this chat with Showtime Celebrity, she opens up on why she prefers dating a white guy to a black man. ..Enjoy!!!

You once dated a White guy and there was an interview where you said you regretted dating a White guy…
(Cuts in) that was years ago. Did I ever say I regretted dating the guy? That was a long time ago and now that I am more mature I will say White guys are better. For one, they wouldn’t break your heart unnecessarily. If you want me to compare I will say White guys are better lovers because of their truthfulness.

What if we look at the difference between the two in bed. Which would you say is better?
(Laughing) oh, what a question! Well, it depends on how you go about it. A man is a man. I am not saying that Black men are not blessed naturally more than the whites. They seem to be more endowed but then it still depends on how you go about it. You can get whatever you want from the white man depending on how you go about it.

What’s your idea of sex generally. How often should it be done?

I think sex is good when someone is married. You know, you do it without fear of committing a sin or committing adultery. Sex is something every couple , married couple, should do, probably, everyday, I don’t know, probably every time they are moved to do it.

Sex has the real pleasure when you are doing it without any form of fear. I’m not saying unmarried people should not engage in sex because there is nothing I will say that will make them stop but somebody like me, every time I do it I always feel bad that I’m sinning against God. Even before sex I feel frigid because there is always that looming fear that I’m not doing what is right. That is for me, I don’t know about any other person. If I’m married to the man then I will feel very free and enjoy it very well.

Can you marry a married man like some of your colleagues in the industry are doing?

Oh, what a question! I wouldn’t marry a married man because the man is married. I can only marry such a man if he is divorced. If the man is divorced he is no longer married, then I can marry him with or without children. There is nothing wrong in a man having children. If the person is nice and we are compatible, why not? I don’t mind

There was a rumour some time ago that you fought with Cossy Orjiakor in public and got yourselves stripped?

That was a very big lie but then what do I do. I heard it but had to overlook it because that was a very big lie. Even at the end of the day, the person that wrote the story came to apologise to me. The journalist said she just wanted to make noise. For me, it’s a bygone, I wouldn’t do that with anyone let alone Cossy. Cossy is my friend. I never had a fight with even my enemy.

The report was trying to paint a picture that you and Cossy were in competition with each other over whose boobs are bigger and finer…

(laughing): I never knew that. I think I am hearing that for the first time. Cossy is my friend. We never quarrelled even during the time we lived together. At a time, she was staying with me and later moved into her own house. When some people see two people being friends they just imagine things and write stuffs about them. Me and Cossy are still friends till date.

Why Men Perform Oral Sex

A new study in scientific journal Evolutionary Psychology has attempted to delve into the scientific and evolutionary reasons why men perform oral sex on women. By polling 243 adult men in heterosexual relationships, researchers at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan, determined that men perform cunnilingus as part of a 'mate retention tactic' to minimize the risk of their partners' infidelity. See the reasons after the cut ... very interesting :)In their study, called "Is cunnilingus-assisted orgasm a male mate-retention Strategy"?, the researchers hypothesized the following reasons why men perform oral sex on women
1. To increase her satisfaction with the relationship, and therefore minimize the risk of infidelity.
2. Sperm retention; the study notes that previous research has found that women retain more sperm when they orgasm shortly after their partner's ejaculation. They apparently retain more sperm in this way because a female orgasm has been shown to cause uterine contractions, 'which pull sperm further into the reproductive tract'. According to the study, this could be why performing oral sex on women is evolutionarily beneficial, since the retention of sperm promotes conception.
Ladies and Gents, do you agree with the outcome of this survey?

Amaechi & Jonathan Meet Face-To-Face In Port Harcourt

This time there was no overzealous presidential guard to bounce Governor Rotimi Amaechi as Mr President, Goodluck Jonathan landed in his state's capital, Port Harcourt, on his way to his hometown, Otuoke in Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa. They exchanged pleasantries without interference.

Asked if all is now well between both men, Jonathan's spokesman, Reuben Abati said:
“There is nothing unusual about that. “It is the duty of a state governor to receive and see the President off when he visits a state. In the event that the governor is not available, the deputy governor carries out the task. This is part of protocol. 
“In this case, anytime the President is visiting Bayelsa State, he passes through Port Harcourt and the governor receives or sees him off. There is no rift between the President and the governor in the first place.”
It is public knowledge that Governor Amaechi has been having a running battle with the President in what many believe is part of the build up to the 2015 elections.

Their frosty relationship climaxed when Amaechi contested and won the Nigeria Governors’ Forum election despite a warning from the PDP that Amaechi should not contest the election.

Tonto Dikeh Denies Smoking "Igbo" For Fear Of Going To Jail

Many people say they know that actress Tonto Dikes takes "joint", and it's not necessarily a bad thing if not that our authorities in Nigeria are yet to legalize/regulate marijuana and the fact that it was promoted through her personal page on the instagram social platform.
Anyway, Tonto has reacted to the Indian Hemp saga. Read her reaction below:

"As much as I would like to ignore the current issue on hemp, I think I owe well-meaning people some clarification. It is so easy the misconception that can come from a picture- the genius of technology. If you cannot find me holding a wrap of marijuana then you may want to slow down on your assumptions. We shouldn’t use our platforms to spread half-truths.

A fan wrote those words with herbs on my birthday on instagram, and I replied: “Thank you #teampoko”. Now how does someone else’s action become my crime? If I said those words ('Mi smoke gaja mi smoke weed while my hatez smoke ma gossip' ) I will stand by them but I didn’t, and just because it is convenient for people to believe the lies still doesn’t make it the truth. The whole thing is falsified by people who just love to have fun at others expense.

Let’s put some thought to some of the things we write. Don’t do cut-and-paste. The original pictures are there to see; but no! That is too boring to be the truth. We want the truth to be nasty and spicy for our enjoyment, even if it is a pack of lies. Visit my instagram page and see if the original picture is the same as the ones being circulated

Personally, I have moved on to more significant things and I want you to join me. Do you know how many women suffer domestic violence in Nigeria? What can be done to stop it? Shouldn’t we try to revive the Nigerian homes so we can groom happy and confident children? I am putting the weight of my voice behind domestic violence. What about you?

Stop hitting, slapping, cursing, hurting your partner! Where is the love? Let’s restore the dignity of society with the platform given to us by God. Use that platform of yours to build awareness for more important issues."

APC Or Form New Party To Defeat Jonathan In 2015

Prominent Northern governors and other senior politicians in the region are set to form a new political party or join the mega party, APC, in a move to defeat President Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the coming 2015 general elections...

A source who is part of the move to ensure that the region recaptures power in the 2015 general elections disclosed this to Punch in Abuja, on Friday.

The source said the formation of a new political party was one of the three options being considered by northern political leaders as politicking for the next general election gathers steam.

The source added that the region is afraid of being used again and dumped in the manner “Nuhu Ribadu was dumped by the Action Congress of Nigeria during the 2011 elections.”

The source, who pleaded anonymity because he was not authorised to speak to the press, said, “The reality of our current political isolation is not lost on us here in the North.

“I believe also we have learnt a thing or two from the brand of politics which led to the set up of Nuhu Ribadu by the ACN during the 2011 elections.

“If by any chance we allow that kind of thing to happen again, then we are doomed. There are three options before us and we are considering them seriously.

One: remain in the Peoples Democratic Party where we are almost certain that President Goodluck Jonathan will impose himself on the party; for those who may have forgotten, this was done in the last Nigeria Governors’ Forum election. Don’t forget that some of the northern governors are facing expulsion threats from PDP.

Two: join the All Progressives Congress to defeat the PDP or three: float a fresh political platform altogether. For those who think the third option is a long shot, I suggest they should think again because the Congress for Progressive Change would have been the party to beat today but for some tactical blunders.

“Politics is a game of numbers; we have the numbers as well as the political sagacity to build bridges across ethnic and religious divides, we have done it before, we can do it again.”

Governor Amaechi Visits Tinubu In Lagos

The rumour is everywhere that the Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, was being punished by President Goodluck Jonathan due to his close association with leaders of the opposition, especially the national leader of the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, Bola Tinubu.

And the ACN has not failed to defend Amaechi whenever the Presidency tries to rubbish him. So it was like home coming for Governor Amaechi on Friday as he visited Tinubu in his house...

During the visit, enogmaurice.blogspot.Com gathered that Amaechi still played politics as he urged Nigerians to protect their votes in the coming election, saying that it is the only way to prevent manipulation in 2015.

Amaechi who visited Tinubu at his Ikoyi, Lagos, residence also condoled with the political strong man over the death of his mother, Alhaja Abibat Mogaji.

Probably referring to how the opposition can win the next election if the votes are allowed to count, Amaechi said “Things should be done in such a way that the electorate defend their votes, not just leaving them in the custody of the police alone or leaving the place after voting.”

Govt officials withdraw support for OJB due to misinformation from the public

There have been speculations that some celebrities have been to see OJB and made some donations. While it's true that the likes of Don Jazzy, P-Square, Ruggedman, Mercy Johnson, Iyanya, Julius Aguw have contributed, the other names on the list that circulated today are 100% false. For instance, D'banj didn't give N7m, Wizkid didn't give N3m and 2face didn't give N1.5m.

Head of fund raising committee for #SaveOJB, singer Nomoreloss, says the hype and misinformation is affecting efforts to raise the complete money OJB needs for his treatment. See more tweets after the cut...

Laide Bakare: My Husband Wants A DNA? He Must Be Mad

Actress Laide Bakare, who has been enmeshed in a paternity mess with two men, has finally reacted to the claims by her estranged husband, Olumide Okunfulire, that she should submit her new baby for a DNA test to ascertain the true father of the new child.

Olumide insisted that he and his estranged wife, Laide Bakare, had sex several times in the last 9 months and wondered why she wants to give his baby to a man, popular known as ATM.

Reacting to her husband's claims, Laide Bakare said:
He must be “mad and oozing from chronic drunkenness" to dare ask her to come out for a DNA test in order to prove the father of her new baby.

In a chat with City People she said, “Ordinarily, I would not believe all the stories of him saying those rubbish in the media. Maybe he was being pushed to say those things by those who know nothing about how we lived together or, maybe, they just want to put him in a big trouble.”

Laide, who failed to confirm if she was having sex with both men, simply said "I’m sure he has run mad".

Wife Beats Husband: Lamentations Of A Battered Husband

I have known him for two years. He is one of those distant neighbours who had through casual interactions become a friend. In the months that we lived together in the same neighbourhood and when we occasionally ran into one another, our conversation never went beyond the usual inquiry about the weather or the offhand question: “How is your family?”
As a casual friend and neighbour, I had observed him from a distance...
He was introverted and easy-going, almost self-effacing. I knew him as someone who minded his business. He never got into trouble with anyone. That was as far as our friendship went until a year ago when I began to see him with a lady.

Once, he timidly introduced her to me as his fiancĂ©e. He re-appeared in the neighbourhood again after a month only to apologise for not inviting me to his wedding. I got him a small gift and wished him a happy married life. He had at the time informed me that he would quit his self-contained apartment to a more comfortable one due to his change of status. This was more than a year ago and as they say, a lot of water has passed under the bridge. Last weekend, when I again ran into my old friend at a barber’s shop where I went for a haircut; he had changed a great deal.

He was emaciated and withdrawn. He also looked traumatised. He could not even recognise me at first when I waved to draw his attention. I observed him closely. He did not radiate the freshness and robust look that is common with newly-weds. I nudged him. First, he looked past me, a blank expression on his face; then, he jumped as if he had seen a ghost. He looked at me again for a moment and then screamed: “Ah! Bros, how now? Long time no see” We exchanged pleasantries in the midst of the loud music from the blaring speakers in the saloon where we had waited for our turn to come. Grabbing me by the arm like a long lost friend, he half-dragged me to a distance where he was sure that no one could eavesdrop on us. Then, in what seemed like torrents of pent-up emotion, he let out the tale of woes his new marriage had become.

“Bros, where have you been? I have been on the look-out for you. You see, I hardly make friends. But I see you as somebody I can confide in. My marriage has been hell and my wife is trouble personified. She has been violent since the first day we were pronounced husband and wife.” He paused and looked around to see if anyone was eavesdropping on us. 
“We did not court for a long time. But even in those few months of our courtship, I noticed she was very aggressive. She once slapped a cashier over a small matter. She also slapped me once and I once narrowly escaped being bathed with hot water but I never took it seriously then. Each time she goes into a rage, I quickly forgive her. In the last one year, she has fought me many times over flimsy arguments. The last time, she slapped me in the presence of our friends at a party. The other day, when we got into an argument, one of the many we had had, she sliced my arm with a razor.”

He unfolded his shirt to reveal a deep but a stitched scar that ran through his shoulder to his wrist. It was scary. He went on, now almost sobbing. “I really do not know what to do as I am very scared of her violent mood swings. Her weapons include hot water, boiling soup and kitchen knife which she throws at me like missiles. She has destroyed every gadget in the house. When she is calm, she would break down in my arms, and cry profusely. I have forgiven her many times when I look into her eyes because I really love her. What should I do now? Things have become even more complicated now that she is pregnant with our first baby.”

He proceeded to show me deep scars of teeth bites, nail scratches and injury marks; results of months of violence their marriage had become. It was unbelievable. Now, he has taken to drinking. We returned and both took our turns to have the haircut that had brought us to the hairdresser’s in the first place. Later, we ended up in a bar where he quickly drowned two bottles of beer. I did not know what to say. Third party advice in marriage is always a tricky one. I watched him as he drowned one glass of chilled lager after the other.

He looked pathetic.

Relationship between a man and a woman has always been a complicated one. This is even more so when violence is involved. I have come in contact with women who had been at the receiving end of some of the worst forms of domestic violence. But a battered husband is thought to be rare or hardly discussed. The first reaction upon knowing about the topic of battered men, for many people, is that of disbelief. Battered husbands are also a topic for jokes (such as the cartoon image of a woman chasing her husband with a rolling-pin). Violence against husbands has historically been ignored or subjected to ridicule and abuse. In 18th-century France, for example, a battered husband was made to wear an outlandish outfit and ride backwards around the village on a donkey.

Even those people who like to consider themselves liberated and open-minded often have a difficult time even imagining that husband battering could take place. The idea goes against the stereotype of the passive and helpless female. Although feminism has opened many of our eyes about the existence of domestic violence, and newspaper reports often include cases of abuse of wives, the abuse of husbands is a rarely discussed phenomenon. In many ways, it is still the women who suffer cruelty from violent husbands. While the majority of domestic violence victims are women, abuse of men is thought to happen far more often than one may probably expect.

Typically, men are physically stronger than women but that doesn’t necessarily make it easier to escape the violence or the relationship. An abused man may face a shortage of resources, scepticism from police, and major legal obstacles, especially when it comes to gaining custody of his children from an abusive mother. Husband battering is also said to happen to men from all cultures and all walks of life. Figures have suggested that as many as one in three victims of domestic violence are male. However, men are often reluctant to report abuse by women because they feel embarrassed, or they fear they won’t be believed, or worse, that police will assume that since they’re males they are the perpetrators of the violence and not the victims. Many people also have trouble understanding why a woman who is being abused by her husband or boyfriend doesn’t simply just leave him. When the roles are reversed, and the man is the victim of the abuse, people are even more bemused.

However, anyone who’s been in an abusive relationship knows that it’s never that simple. Ending a relationship, even an abusive one, is rarely easy. When my friend told me he loves his wife, I had imagined why women also find it difficult to quit an abusive husband. However, in spite of the isolated cases of battered men, I still believe women are the major victims. My advice for victims of abuse (man or woman) has always been: Don’t wait till death do you part. Seek help and quit the marriage as soon as possible. Back to the bar, I looked on with pity as my friend hit his seventh bottle. He seemed in no hurry to leave.

Another indication that D'banj, the Kokomaster, is the king of Nigeria's new generation musicians has again emerged as the Oliver Twist hit maker just hit a mouth watering deal with leading telecommunications firm, Etisalat as a "super" brand ambassador.

A source told Bossmaurice that D'banj was paid 5 times what other Naija artistes get...
I hear a cheque of N250m was issued to him by Etisalat, a company that really wants to re-establish itself as a leader in the industry, after losing its brand face, Saka, to MTN under controversial circumstances.

The deal was struck recently and D'banj has already shot some commercials for Etisalat being prepared for release. D'banj continues to maintain his leadership role in the industry and his latest show, the DKM concert which took place in Lagos on Sunday was a huge success.

Congrats to the Kokomaster, Eja Nla!

UNILAG Student Raped By 2 Boys Shares Her Story

She was kidnapped and raped in turns by two friends, one of them close to her family, but she could not tell anyone because the guys took her nude photos and she was afraid of the stigma. The guys posted the photos on the internet and somehow her relations abroad saw them.

Bmb gathered that it was her relations outside the country that contacted her mother and expose the rape of this UNILAG undergraduate. Below is what they did to the lady as stated by her:

“Babajide came to our house to treat our dog. In the process, he requested for my phone number and I reluctantly gave him. He started calling me and told me he would like to go out with me.

But I told him I already had a boyfriend whom I loved. Yet, he kept calling me, saying he was not interested in just going out with me but wanted to marry me. Aside that, he kept monitoring my movements and at a point, I deleted his contact on my phone.

“I was returning home for a weekend in April, a car stopped by my side at Idumota bus-stop. Jide was sitting beside a driver who was unknown to me.

“On sighting him, I walked past. But the next thing he did was to hold me by the hand, dragged me into the car and drove to his house.

When he got home, he started beating me and tore my clothes, asking what I wanted that he could not give me. He instructed me to unlock my phone and when he discovered that I used my boyfriend’s name as password, he resumed the beating.

“At a point, he gave me his phone to speak with some of his friends who told me I was in for trouble, for turning down a member of their unnamed cult, threatening that they would kill me for treating him shabbily.

Thereafter, he raped me and when he was done, his friend took his turn despite my plea. When he saw I was bleeding, he stopped and started begging me. At that point, he brought out his phone and started taking my nude pictures. I made attempt to cover my face but he hit me on the head with a bottle and continued taking the shots.

How I escaped
“I begged him to allow me call my mother to give him some money for my release but he refused. I also appealed to him to delete my pictures when he started begging me.

I stayed in that room all night till the next day when he went out to get me some drugs. Immediately he stepped out, I tried the door and discovered it was not locked from outside. I quickly changed into one of my dirty clothes in my bag and escaped.

But I could not tell anyone at home. When my elder brother asked what the problem was on seeing the blood stained clothes, I told him I was involved in an accident and when my mother insisted on knowing what the problem was, I told her I fought with a course mate. She insisted on going to school with me on seeing the magnitude of the injury but I prevented her.

“Barely had I settled down than Babjide called, threatening to kill me if I disclosed what happened to anyone. As if that was not enough, his friends also called and threatened me as well.”

The alleged rapist, Babajide Bashorun, who claimed she was his girlfriend, has been charged to court.

Why Obama Wont Come To Nigeria

The United States of America on Tuesday gave hints on the reasons why President Barack Obama won’t visit Nigeria during his upcoming three-nation trip to Africa...

According to US officials, the ongoing insecurity appeared to be responsible for the exclusion of Nigeria in Obama’s second visit to the continent. Obama is scheduled to visit Senegal, Tanzania and South Africa.

The US government said the trip would focus on trade and investment, democratic institution-building, young people, and enhancing economic growth.

American Deputy National Security Advisor, Ben Rhodes, made this clarifications at a briefing on Tuesday.

The briefing was addressed jointly with the Senior Director for African Affairs Grant Harris and Senior Director for Development and Democracy Gayle Smith, on Obama’s upcoming visit.

The text of the briefing was made available to journalists in Abuja by the Information Office of the Public Affairs Section of the US Embassy.

Rhodes said, “Obviously, Nigeria is working through some very challenging security issues right now... at this point, we just were not able to make it to Nigeria on this particular itinerary."

LAUTECH "Yahoo Yahoo" Undergraduate Gets 3 Year Jail Term

Justice Akintunde Abass yesterday at the State High Court sitting in Ibadan, Oyo State, convicted and sentenced a young man to three years in jail for obtaining money under wrong pretence and scam. The young man was twenty four year old Akinluyi Akintunde who studies Agronomy at Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Akintunde was brought to the court on March 13, 2013 to face a two count charge from obtaining money under false pretence. Specifically, he allegedly obtained the sum of $450.00 from one Robert Jackson (an American) via Western Union Money Transfer under a false pretence that he was a lady. In his judgment, Justice Abass ordered that the sum of $450 recovered from the convict be returned to the victim, Robert Jackson through the United States Consulate as restitution.

Also, he also ordered that the laptop recovered from the convict in the course of his arrest be forfeited to the Federal Government.

Young boys/men should concentrate of their studies and not how to acquire ill-gotten wealth. There is too much emphasis on ostentatious lifestyle these days! Hope others learn from his predicament. Do you think he deserved what he got?
