81  Forum / The Buzz Central / Meet The Youngest Female Billionaire In America Who Sells Burger on: 8-02-2013 12:01 PM

Lynsi Torres


Who says burger can’t earn you millions, or that fast food can’t earn you fast money? Say hello to the 30-year-old woman who’s made her billions off flipping burgers.

Lynsi Torres, the youngest female billionaire in America, is owner and president of the popular In-N-Out Burger chain, a fast food haven with such a cult following that many queue for hours ahead of a new store opening, Bloomberg reports.

Fans of the restaurant, which serves up a tasty double-double cheeseburger and animal fries with special sauce, include fellow billionaire Warren Buffett who allegedly told students of the UCLA Anderson School of Business in 2005 that he’d like to own the franchise.

Torres’ rise to riches can be credited to her grandparents who founded the first In-N-Out as a mom-and-pop drive-through burger stand in 1948 in Baldwin Park. Now, over 60 years later, the chain has become a fast-food empire worth more than $1 billion.

“They have done a fantastic job of building and maintaining a kind of cult following,” said Bob Goldin, executive vice president of Chicago-based food industry research firm Technomic Inc. “Someone would love to buy them.”

Two of the Super Eagles’ star performers, Emmanuel Emenike and Victor Moses, were left out of Thursday’s training session, after they picked up knocks in the 4-1 victory over Mali.

The team’s doctor, Ibrahim Gyaran, confirmed that he advised Stephen Keshi, to exclude the players from training, so they could undergo tests on the injuries they picked up.

Emenike is expected to return to training on Friday, after he showed signs of recovery from cramps, while Moses is still awaiting results of the scan he underwent.

Keshi had told journalists after the match that “We will know about that, probably (on Thursday). The doctor will have to go and do some scans so we will know better,” Keshi said on Wednesday.

“Hopefully, it’s not that bad. We will play (our next game) on Sunday. We just pray to God because we need everybody in the team. We are keeping our fingers crossed.”

The Big Boss will be hoping to have two of his key players in great shape for the final showdown against Burkina Faso o Sunday.
84  Forum / The Buzz Central / Chris Okotie ban journalist from attending his church over story on: 7-02-2013 05:34 PM
The journalist is Biodun Kupoluyi, the publisher of E24/7 Magazine. He is alleging that the senior pastor of Household of God, Chris Okotie, has barred him from attending his church after he wrote a story alleging that Rev Okotie is dating an undergraduate named Miss Naomi Hoffman. (See the story above) Biodun is an off/on member of Household of God.

He granted an interview to Encomium magazine this week, telling his side of the story. See it below...

    I received the news from a man claiming he's representing the church that he has been directed by the pastor of the church and members of Household of God church that I should not come and worship with them. His reason, he said, was premised on E24-7 magazine's expose - pastor Chris finds new love, says I will not get married again, but may opt for surrogacy soon. I found it shocking that a day after the publication hit the streets, his media department sent a release out and it confirmed our story. He actually made those statements and we reported it. I think he did not think anybody could have known about his romance with the girl, Naomi. He was caught off guard..but as a journalist, I owe our teeming readers that responsibility. I feel fulfilled, though I will miss his theatrics, his stage performances and verbosity.

My perception of the church and my respect for the man has changed. He is not a serious preacher of the gospel. The job of a good shepherd is to seek a lost sheep, not to ban a sheep or send away a sheep from the fold. It is only in our environment that these kind of things happen. Because I worship in a church, I can't write the story of the pastor even if the pastor is doing what is wrong? But the pastor and the church will hail me if I praise him or do a PR story for them.

86  Forum / The Buzz Central / TOUCHING STORY Of Victor Moses That Will Make You Cry (MUST READ) on: 7-02-2013 04:54 PM
This is the story of a young boy whose parents were murdered during 2002 riots in Kaduna. He was aged 11 years at the time. His parents, Mr Austine and Mrs Josephine Moses, were missionaries until they met their untimely death. The boy left his house to play football but returned home to see that all his parents had laboured for had been razed down and he would never see his mother and father again.
He was taken to London by his uncle almost immediately after the incident. While in London, he began deploying his football skills. Though his parents were murdered, his passion for football was never killed. He played football for his school and later for a local Tandrige League club until Crystal Palace FC approached him. From that point, his career progressed in leaps and bounds.
This player played for England's under 16, 17, 19 and 21 teams between 2005 and 2010 scoring 11 goals for England during this period. He later moved to Wigan Athletic and now he plays for Chelsea. This footballer is called VICTOR MOSES.
His story is a touching one, I share his pains. I also share his courage. He had a choice not to step into Nigeria again but he didn't take that option. When the call to serve his fatherland came, Moses dumped England and embraced Nigeria... That is patriotism!
Today, we see a Victor Moses bringing joy to every Nigerian including those who may have inspired his parent's death... That is Love!
On Sunday, Moses would stand for the National Anthem and pledge allegiance to a country that couldn't defend his parents... That is faith!
Moses would deliver the "African Cup of Nations" trophy to Nigeria not minding what had happened in the past... That is forgiveness! Moses rose through bitterness and despair to the limelight of hope and courage.
He never gave up on his country. He persevered... That is purpose!
If someone like Victor Moses, despite the bitter past, never gave up on Nigeria, then why should we

The Lagos State Taskforce on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit has begun clampdown on distributors and sellers of pornographic materials across Lagos, Southwest Nigeria.

Four distributors of pornographic materials were arrested at Cele Bus Stop on Oshodi-Apapa Expressway on Tuesday by the taskforce after the police raided the area.

Those arrested will be arraigned before the Special Offences Court at the taskforce yard and prosecuted for selling obscene materials.

The sellers of the materials arrested are Yinka Dada, 25 years; Udoh Nne, 29 years; Sylvester Obodoe, 18 years and Poopola Bamidele, 18 years.

The culprits admitted that they knew hawking pornographic materials is prohibited in any part of the state.

Obodoe said he knew the act was outlawed in the state but  resorted to hawking pornographic materials to eke out a living.

He pleaded for mercy and promised not to violate the law again.

Taskforce Chairman, Bayo Sulaiman, said there had been complaints by the residents of the resurgence of pornographic materials on the streets of Lagos.

He reiterated that the government has banned the selling or distribution of such materials as the act has a negative influence on children.

“We got complaints from the residents that pornographic materials were sold in some parts of the state. We had cleared the materials off the streets of Lagos before but the traders are back to business again. We have to arrest the situation again. We are going to charge those arrested to court to serve as deterrent to others,” he said.

Rapper Ikechukwu and his model/beauty specialist fiancee, beautiful Sarah Ofili have called it quits...again! The couple who got engaged in October 2011 after dating off and on for many years separated late last year. My sources say November/December.

My attention was actually brought to the new development after I posted Ikechukwu's bathroom photo on this blog a few days back and mentioned Sarah Ofili. I got a mail the following day with info about the break up. I've been doing a little digging since then, and the few people I asked confirmed that they've gone their separate ways.

But the thing is, this is not the first time the pair will separate...they always reconcile, so hopefully they will get back together...again!

Sarah hinted at the cause of their break up a few weeks back on her Twitter page

n interview with a security guard who worked for Chris Okotie and also accused him of stealing his woman . Read Interview below.

When did you join Rev. Chris Okotie’s Household as a member? When did you work there and for how long? How were you sacked?

I joined Household in 2006. I was interviewed by pastor , got the job in 2009 and was sackedin 2010.

What were you employed as?

Security Guard

We learnt you were in a relationship with a lady, stephnora Nwamaka Boniface,also a former staff of Okotie

That’s true. She remains the mother of my only child.

What was Nora (Amaka) employed as before she left the job

She was working at the campaign house with other ladies there reporting to him directly.

What does she do now?

She is a modeling agent, they say.

What’s your baby’s name, sex and age?

Isabella Adejo

How old?

My beloved daughter is two years and six months. She was born in Dafe Hospital in Ketu September 2010. I had to delete everything about Nora from my life. She almost ruined my life. I’m just trying to start again. I want to be seeing my child. That’s all I want no.

How did you meet Nora?

I met her in a café where she was working as a café attendant

Where and when?

That was in Ketu, in 2006. WE went our ways in 2010 after she met “Baba Olowo”

Who is that, please?

Rev. Chris Okotie

How old is your woman ?

She is 27, by July 9 she will be 28

What made you suspect she was dating Rev. Okotie ?

We fight and quarrel often. She is pretty and wants to keep appointment with too many men against my wish. She goes to him ( OKotie ) every now and then, frequent calls from him. He usually asks her to buy clothes, meet him in his church office to test and see how the clothes fitsher.
She will come and be discussing how Okotie has bed in his Church Office and a whole lot ofthings, bros e too much. My eyes opened when he instructed that I shouldn’t live with the mother of my child, a lady I have spent almost all my life with because he rented a two-bedroom apartment for her and my child.
If I had not taken her to Household of God, would Okotie have come to collect her from my one room that we were living before?

Nigeria’s High Commissioner to South Africa, Sonni Samuel Yusuf walked taller Sunday when the Super Eagles sent Ivory Coast’s Elephants crashing out of the Nations Cup.

The High Commissioner who said that he was proud to be a Nigerian informed that about Six Governors in Nigeria called to congratulate him and to also inform him that they would be in South Africa to watch the semi final cracker against Mali on Wednesday in Durban.

“I’m particularly elated because nobody gave these boys any chance of survival against Cote d’Ivoire. God loves Nigeria and we should learn to believe in ourselves.

I am proud to be a Nigerian. Nigerians back home are happy and six Governors have called to inform that they will be watching their semi final match in Durban. It could be more but unfortunately my phone has gone off because the battery is down”.

The High Commissioner advised Nigerians not to be cynical against themselves. “We got potentials. Nothing is impossible if we believe in ourselves.

With Cote d’Ivoire out of our way, we must beat Mali. Let the bookmakers tip them to win on paper while we win on the field of play”, the youthful High Commissioner said.
99  Forum / The Buzz Central / ‘My Wife Is The Most Fantastic Person I Know’ – Darey on: 5-02-2013 11:12 AM

Often regarded as one of the most exceptional musicians of his generation, award winning entertainer, songwriter and singer Darey Art Alade is a lot summed up into one personality.

In this compelling chat, Darey speaks with NET about love, marriage and other projects that he is working on.

You have often been regarded as one of Nigeria’s finest musicians, how does that make you feel?

Really, it makes me feel like a new artiste. I never for once feel like I have arrived. Lately I have been telling anybody that new artistes should watch out for me. I feel like I just started. I feel like I have my whole life ahead of me, so it’s like starting all over again. It’s like being born again. That’s my approach for this year so my work is going to be hectic, I’ m still on my grind. I’m really thankful that people have thought of me in such a way, but I don’t think of myself in that way.

Few years ago you had a reality show, ‘Most Undareyted’ on TV, nothing has been heard of it since the first edition?

We are going to relaunch it soon. A lot of these things take time and other resources. We will like to focus on one thing and idea at a time and right now we are focusing on Love Like A Movie. When we are done with Love Like A Movie, then we’ll release new materials, new videos, new songs and then we’ll continue with the rest of the TV show maybe we’ll bring back Most Underayted show.

Let’s talk about the ‘Love Like a Movie’ concert, what is it really about?

In details, it is music performances by myself, and some of my friends who will be making appearances;2face, 9ice, Iyanya, Timi Dakolo, Praiz, Waje and others. We will be doing some special stuff together that you are not expecting. You may be thinking they will come and do some of your favourite songs, but it’s going to be different. We’re going to combine that with Circque du Soleil. Circque du Soleil is extreme theater. These are guys using sand to draw what I’m singing. Our normal concept is just to come on stage, either lip-synching or jumping up and down with dancers when the CD you would release is even better than what you are performing. We’re giving you something else. I’ll be singing live they will be doing some real acrobatics live, and they will also be doing the sand artistry live too. It’s really exciting stuff and we are combining all of that with music, theatre, drama everything together non-stop action for about 1hr40mins.


How and why is it different from other concerts?

‘Love Like a Movie‘ is an unforgettable evening. We want people to go home right with a picture in their mind not on their camera or their phones, but something that they will keep inside them until the day they die. It’s not about the money that the production is gulping, it’s about the creativity that we can do this without going outside the country. We can produce something that is worth an original and totally magical. That’s the idea that we want to leave with people. It’s all centered for lovers so please come. Even if you are still toasting her, I’m telling you by the time she finishes watching the show with you, I guarantee I can put my money on it, if she no gree for you after, forget am.

It sounds like a big budget concert, how do you find the finances to put all this together?

We thank some of our sponsors and partners like radio and TV stations; AIT, Wazobia, Cool, Classic FM and a few others. The show will be refreshed by Fayrouz. Lagos State Inland Revenue Service (LIRS) is supporting us and a few other people that we are still talking to. Also good natured individuals who would buy tickets on or call our cell phone no and buy tables. These are the people that are making the show happen.

 Are your artistes on Soul Muzik performing as well?

Oh yes, they are going to be there; Mo Eazy and Zaina, and you are going to enjoy their creativity and talents.

So what’s the next step for Soul Muzik?

The plan is to release new materials and our studio is going to go live after the concert. So people around the country will always come and get quality recording and production and some other things that I can’t tell you here.

In the spirit of valentine, although you often times try to avoid the question, I’d like to talk about marriage.

You are not going to get a lot out of it really but you can try (Laughs).

You are married with two beautiful kids, how has married life been so far?

I don’t understand what you are looking for, I’m enjoying myself, and everything is working together.

Can you tell us something about your wife?

She is one of the most fantastic creative people that I know, she’s a graphic designer by education but by profession she’s an interior designer. We work together; she does interior and I sell paints. You can see the combination in terms of business. Once our clients finish taking their curtains or furniture, they want to paint the house, they come to my own side. She’s even into entertainment as well but she walks behind the scenes. She knows everything that is going on. She’s a really smart girl apart from been beautiful and really great.

How do you find time to pull all of it together?

I think it’s scheduling. It’s been very hectic I won’t lie. It’s just scheduling. You know everything has its time. There’s time to wake and time to sleep, time to work or play, time for travelling, so, any little time that I have no matter where I am in the world, once I have a break, I go home and spend time with my family. It helps. You know if I stay away too long it doesn’t help things. One day, you could come back home and your children would be like, ‘who is that’. You don’t want that, so you have got to keep ‘oiling the machine’.

Unlike many celebrity marriages, yours has lasted quite a while, do you mind sharing tips on how you have been able to keep it together?

It’s just the grace of God. Nigerian men are fond of being too braggadocios or too hard, but we must know that every coin has two sides, and if you realize that without the other side you won’t have a coin. If you have that kind of mental approach then you know that it’s not that you’re more than the other person but always try to have the balance and once you have that in mind, you pray about it and work on everything, it’s just the grace of God, there’s no magic or anything so I can’t tell you that you must do it this way or that way. It’s just different things for different people. I think one thing that cuts across whoever it is and wherever you find yourself coming from is balance. You always have to strike a balance because there are times when you are better than the other person but it doesn’t mean that you will always be better. The other person too will be better than you in certain areas. Praise that person when their praise is due so that the person can also praise you. if you take that and apply that to life in general, I think everybody and Nigerians in general would get along a lot better and we will tend to respect ourselves and each other and we can encourage each other so when the other person is down you can pull the person up by just smiling because the next day you may be the one that is down.

An engineer with Nigeria’s Federal Road Maintenance Agency, FERMA collapsed and died yesterday in Abeokuta, capital of Ogun state, after Ivory Coast netted the equaliser in the Nigeria - Ivory Coast quarter-final match in the African Nations Cup tournament in South Africa.

The man, identified as Owolabi Ismail had a sudden heart attack at a viewing centre popularly called,"Promise Stadium" which is located at Lanlepe compound, Oke-Sokori,Abeokuta. He died while he was being taken to the hospital. He had since been buried according to Islamic rites.

A witness said Owolabi slumped when the Ivorians equalised Nigeria’s first half goal lead. Nigeria eventually won the game, with another goal scored in the second half. According to him: "We were watching the match at the viewing centre with much anticipation and anxiety from everybody. He was so much in the match that he did not want any distraction from anybody. Immediately our boys fired in the first goal, the excitement was so much that he was dancing and praising God and when the Ivorians equalised, he collapsed instantly and we have to rush him to a nearby hospital where there was no doctor on hand to attend to him only to give up the ghost while being taken to another hospital in the area", he narrated.
