1  Forum / The Buzz Central / I Finally Realize it Now, things are no more Fictions but Real: Ik Ogbonna on: 27-07-2013 11:26AM
"Things We Thought We Wanted At 13 Are Things We Grew To Realise We Don't Want Any More", Ik Ogbonna
It's sad that in a country where pressing issues that threaten national growth persist quite obvious that even blind men can see it. Our leaders choose to press on non-issues with what ever intentions we know are purely selfish. I won't press much on this but if they feel it's right why can't they start with their own children. 1st and foremost a child at 13 can't decide what she wants as such obvious examples live within us.. things we thought we wanted at 13 are things we grew too realise we don't want any more.
This act of stupidity would increase divorce, rape, adultery, and hate thus children would be forced into marriage against their will thus infringing their basic human right of choice. Our 1st lady should speak on this and our so called leaders should tackle pressing issues and move this country forward. Nigeria pays our leader more than any other country in the world but we get little in return. Our currency is useless outside Nigeria, we don't have good electrical supply, schools are on strike, some students at the primary level who should have free education are seen on the streets hawking and begging. Let's spend time in building the leaders of tomorrow not destroying them and killing the beauty of life in them. Self hate alone can lead to a lot of things let's fight against this. I am IK ogbonna and I stand against such act of murder to our future.

3  Forum / The Buzz Central / P Square's Manager & Director, Jude Okoye - Why I'm Still Single on: 26-07-2013 06:22PM
A few days ago, the elder brother to African Music duo P-Square, Jude Okoye, better known as the manager and music video director for the award-winning group gave an exclusive interview to PM News. The interview was conducted by Bayo Adetu who also happens to be P-Square’s publicist.

Since he’s been in the limelight, many fans of his and P-Square‘s have had questions about Jude’s role in P-Square’s success, how they've made it this far and the ever recurring question of why they are not married. Jude answers them all!
On being a brother to the famous twins
I will say that I am blessed and fortunate because it’s an honour to be the person behind them, and doing all the necessary things to keep the brand relevant at all time. At the same time, it’s not easy because every arrow and weapon tend to land on me, but I can’t complain because it’s what I signed and nobody is forcing me. I am blessed and happy that they’re my brothers.

Fellow Gistmania Readers, let's get started with long but interesting interview
His most memorable experience with P-Square
The fact that they’re recognised globally. At times, I sit in my room and people across the world would be calling for shows and you start wondering how your music got there despite the fact you don’t have a promoter, marketer or even the label’s brand office in these places.
I think that’s just the most memorable experience. But now, it is much easier with our deals with Konvict Music and Universal.
On P-Square’s personal life
Paul is more on the reserved side while Peter is on the social side. Peter is like a socialite, outgoing person more than Paul. Peter has the motivating drive. He loves to ginger us into doing stuff and at the end of the day; you don’t have an option than to follow him.
As for Paul, he would not consult anybody if he has any idea before doing it, and after perfecting it, he would now call us into it.
Why he only focuses on P-Square’s Careers
If I am just a producer, manager or record label CEO, I will definitely expand by signing more artistes and commercialise myself, but my hands are tied. My hands are full because I do all these works myself. I don’t have time and when I have little time to take my work outside, like producing video or audio for someone else, there is always competition, especially when the artiste is not as big as P-Square. The next thing you hear is that Jude doesn’t want me to shine more than his brothers. Besides, most up and coming artistes make the mistake of comparing themselves with the big masquerades. That’s why I have to limit myself and remain with P-Square. Soonest, I will relinquish some of the work to capable hands, so that I can have enough time to rest and promote other artistes.
On Celebrity life for him
Why are you people always forcing me to come to the public? I don’t want to be a celebrity and I am not one of them. I don’t sing, dance or act.
I love where I am now (hiding myself) and if I love to do that, how do you expect me to introduce the lady I am dating? Back to your question, I have somebody, yes. That’s all.
Like I said, I have somebody but I won’t tell you her name.
His ideal woman
The most important thing I look out for in a woman is understanding, aside physical beauty because everybody wants to look at the person beside him and be amazed and happy to have married a beautiful lady, not an ugly girl. Basically, your wife should understand you, especially when both male and female fans are swarming around you, wanting to take photographs with you and the rest. She must understand when you’re at work and office. That is my kind of woman
“Peter and Paul already have kids; and we all know their heartthrobs. Can you tell us the one in your life?”
When I will kick bachelorhood, I will call you and my fans to come and eat and drink. Already, I have purchased the bell, when it’s time, I will ring it.

It’s taking so long because I am waiting for you people. Basically, why I am not yet married is that I don’t want to get married because I have all it takes to marry or because I am ripe. I want to get married and feel married so that I will be committed to my wife.
Although, I am not looking for a perfect person, but she must be a friend, partner, everything and someone that understands what I do.

Things like this were only seen in movies before now, but it happened this morning at Afromedia street in the Okokomaiko area of Lagos. The story behind the bird that changed in this woman is strange:

From what I hear, three (3) birds were flying in the area and suddenly one fell and landed into a water and to the surprise of all around, the bird changed into this woman.

A source revealed that bird-turned-woman was "arrested" by the police where she confessed to be a native of Ikole, a town in Ekiti State.

I wonder how the police is going to handle this case. Strange indeed!

13  Forum / The Buzz Central / Movie Marketers Want To "Do Me" Before Marketing My Movie:BISI OMO LOGBA LOGBA on: 21-07-2013 12:31PM
Whenever the name Bisi Ibidapo-Obe (BISI OMO LOGBA LOGBA) is mentioned, one just have to remember her love-child drama with Hon Dino Melaye, who she claimed impregnated her and, as such, the father of her baby.
Below is what she said about Dino Melaye's current place in her life and her encounter with notorious men in the movie marketing sector who want to "shop her thing" before helping her:

Did you ever consider abortion as an option then?
Never! I rebuke that in Jesus name. This is what I have craved for. This is what many rich men and women cannot afford to buy with money and God now blessed me with such gift. It never crossed my mind because I considered her (the baby) a gift from God. Why should I abort the baby? You needed to see me then. I flaunted the pregnancy anywhere and everywhere. Although attempts were made by some people to get it terminated but the God that I worship did not allow this to happen.

Who are those people?
I wouldn’t want to talk about them. But I was attacked physically and spiritually. But thank God as He proved Himself to them.

Right now the baby is here, what is the relationship between you and Dino Melaye?
Relationship? Seriously, I wouldn’t want to talk about it. What is more important is that the baby is alive and I pray to God to give me long life to take good care of her. As I said earlier, she is a gift from God.

Given your experience with Dino Melaye, do you still believe in love?
Why not? The fact that a man breaks your heart does not mean that you shouldn’t pick up the pieces and move on with your life. It won’t stop me from giving my heart to another man. I only need to be careful with the kind of man that I will open my heart to.

Did you experience the issue of sexual harassment while growing in the industry?
Sexual harassment is not peculiar to our industry alone, we have it everywhere. But I will tell you that I never experienced such during my training with the Odunfa caucus. We have thorough professionals in that caucus who have no time for such frivolities. Don’t get me wrong; I am not saying they don’t ‘toast’ ladies, but it is left for you to accept or not. They will never force you or consider it before giving you roles. I get my roles on merit not by sleeping around with producers.

But I experience this with some movie marketers who insisted that they must sleep with me before giving me money for production. But I called their bluff!

When you tell ladies that indecent dressing is bad, some will say they put on what makes them comfortable. Anyway, actress Rukky Sanda caused a lot of commotion with her boobs-exposing dress at Yvonne Nelson's movie premiere in Lagos that even she was ashamed of herself.

At one point, she was forced to use her hands to close her cleavage. See the photos below:

The former governor of Zamfara State has come under fire from several quarters for being the leading voice that is supporting early girlchild marriage, using religion as excuse. See his defense below:
Nigeria has many uncountable problems and none of them is early marriage. As a matter of fact early marriage is the solution to about half of our problems.
"For those who wonder if I can give my daughter(s) out in marriage at the age of 9 or 13, I tell you most honestly, I can give her out at the age of 6 if I want to and its not your business.
"This is because I am a Muslim and I follow the example of the best of mankind, Muhammad ﺻَﻠَّﻰ ﺍﻟﻠَّﻪُ ﻋَﻠَﻴْﻪِ ﻭَﺳَﻠَّﻢَ .
"In Islam, marriage is not only about sex, it is about family and helping one another in achieving their goals, which is the attainment of Paradise."Do you think it is right for a man to give a girl below 18years his PENIS rather a PEN?]For more gist on politics CLICK HERE[/url]

18  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / See The Deeper Life Pastor Who Raped 11yrs Old Girls; He Is Blaming The Devil on: 19-07-2013 11:32AM
Pastor Fidelis Eze who confessed that he actually had sexual intercourse with Joy and Anthonia both of them 11 years old, claimed he was possessed by evil spirit, which made him sleep with them.
“I am really ashamed of myself particularly as a pastor. I have been a pastor at Deeper Life for over six years but I was tempted to defile these girls. They are always visiting me, so...
"This particularly day I defiled both of them,” he confessed
Consequently, Pastor Fidelis Eze with Deeper life Bible Church in Abudu, Edo State, was paraded by the state Police Command for defiling two under-aged girls.
Contrary to his claims, Pastor Fidelis was said to have lured the two girls, into his room after sending them on an errand. He had carnal knowledge of them before dismissing them.
Father of one of the girls who noticed the unusual way his daughter was walking when she got home, obtained confession from her, which led to the arrest of the Pastor.

We gathered that Pastor Eze will be charged to court for his crimes.
19  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / See What A Policeman Did To This Woman and Her Baby on: 19-07-2013 07:57AM
A police corporal, identified simply as Friday, has been accused of knocking down a teacher, Mrs. Taskirat Anjolaiya, and her baby, Ammarah, in Lagos, Nigeria.

Unfortunately, as a result of the incident, the mother and daughter sustained pelvic fracture, brain injury and a broken jaw among others.

According to eyewitness, the policeman, who is attached to FESTAC Police Division, was driving against traffic on Apapa-Oshodi Expressway when he knocked down the victims.

It was learnt that the graduate of Mathematics Education was alighting from a commercial bus with her child and had not noticed the police patrol van coming from the wrong direction.

The victim’s husband, Mr Sulaiman, said the policeman claimed he was running an errand for the Divisional Police Officer, DPO Ibrahim Zango.

The policeman was said to have told them that he was instructed by the DPO to drop off a woman at the airport in Ikeja and he drove against traffic to avoid traffic congestion on the appropriate route so that she would not miss her flight.

He said, “The accident occurred on June 23, 2013. My wife was on her way to a religious progamme when a police driver drove recklessly on Oshodi-Apapa Expressway. He was driving against traffic and shouting at drivers on the right side of the road to clear out.

“He eventually knocked down my wife and baby while they were alighting from a bus.

“The policeman’s first concern at the scene of the accident was to immediately get a cab to convey the woman in his vehicle to her destination.”

According to Punch findings, the policeman rushed the victims to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi Araba, and deposited N70,000 for their treatment.

At LUTH however, doctors at the emergency ward discovered that the mother of three had sustained a pelvic fracture, facial bruises, and brain injury while the baby, Ammarah, also suffered deep facial cuts and a broken jaw.

Sulaiman lamented that since the incident, over N500,000 had been spent on treatment. He said the policeman had abandoned the victims at the hospital since depositing the N70,000.

He expressed disappointment over how the DPO handled the matter when they went to report the matter at the station. “A few days after the accident, when I could no longer bear the pressure alone, I went to see the DPO and I told him what happened. Zango lambasted me before offering us additional N10,000,” he said.

Sulaiman lamented that the N10,000 was too little, considering the fact that he is unemployed at the moment and had spent all his savings. He expressed disappointment that the police, who had been charged with the duty of protecting lives, were the ones inflicting hardship on his family.

The spokesperson for the state police command, Ngozi Braide said: “It is really a pathetic case and no one is happy about it. You were the one that just informed us of the incident. We have started taking disciplinary action against the DPO and the corporal. We will hold a meeting on the issue on Friday.”

But she didn't say if financial support would be given to the family.
