3  Forum / The Buzz Central / Video: Mike Tyson Cursed Canadian, CP24 Reporter Nathan Downer On Live TV on: 12-09-2014 07:45 AM

Mike Tyson travelled to Toronto earlier in the week for a show scheduled for yesterday.

He used the opportunity to visit alleged drug addict, Mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford where he encouraged and endorsed him for another term in office.

The Undisputed heavy weight champion showed his other side yesterday during a live interview on Toronto-based City Pulse 24 interview.

A Canadian reporter identified as Nathan Downer asked Mike Tyson if it was a good idea for him to meet the Mayor during an election year considering he was a convicted rapist.

Nathan’s question implied that Tyson’s meeting with the Mayor could damage his chances of being reelected as the Mayor of Toronto.

On hearing the rape conviction case, visibly upset but well composed Mike Tyson fired back at the host and called him a piece of s**t. He told him f**k you repeatedly live on air.

“You’re being negative.You’re really a piece of s–t. F–k you!” – Mike said

Nathan reminded Tyson that he was on live TV but Mike said “I don’t care. What are you going to do about it?”

Watch the video below:

The people who brought Mike Tyson to Toronto for the show blamed the host for touching the sensitive topic on Live TV in contrary to their agreement.

The host later took to Twitter to apologise for hurting Mike’s feeling by raising the rape conviction.

“No ill will toward Mike Tyson. He lashed out at me and that’s okay. Not taking it personally
I’m okay everybody. Unfortunately my question hurt Mike Tyson’s feelings. That was not my intentions. My apologizes for the language” – Nathan apologised on Twitter

4  Forum / Relationships & Romance / IN LOVE! Nigerians Who Met On Twitter Tell Love Story, Drop Pre Wedding Photo on: 12-09-2014 07:42 AM

These creative Nigerians who met on Twitter last year are about to marry.

Foluso and Tunde met each other on Twitter in April 2013. She is a fashion designer while her hubby-to-be is a writer, he is the publisher of Golden Sands Novel.

They will be exchanging marital vows next week Saturday, September 20, 2014 in Lagos.

Read their love story below:

“I got to know of him when my cousin sent me a link to his blog, (they were friends from church). It was his debut online series ‘Finding Hubby’. I fell in love with his writing moreso, it was a very relatable story, but since I’m not an avid reader, I stopped going to the blog when the story ended. Then in December finally, after that same cousin of mine had given me a thousand reasons to join Twitter, I found one more – I was going on there to get first hand info about my Ex. And then I found Tunde Leye, I’m like “oh the writer!”. So I started following him. “

One afternoon, late April 2013, he had tweeted about bad network, hence was in an awkward position in another room in his apartment.

I replied the tweet saying that I was also in the same position in my brother’s room for the same reason. So he responded asking if I was a cousin of Tinu George’s having seen my name, I answered in the affirmative and that was how we got talking.

He said immediately (as though he had been waiting for the opportunity) that he’d plan a meeting soon and within three weeks of chatting everyday, we met on May 12 at La Mango, GRA Ikeja.

Things I like about Our Meeting
1. I like that I found him when I wasn’t even looking, even when he and my cousin were friends, we never got introduced and things just played out on their own.
2. There was ‘no long thing’. On our first date, He told me straight up he wanted something really serious. And that was well understood because from our chats he had identified the difference between ‘dating’ and dating seriously.

The Proposal
It happened on the afternoon of Saturday March 15th, it was two weeks to my 30th birthday.

I was home relaxing although in the midst of workmen because my mum was remodelling the house, mostly for our introduction scheduled for Easter Monday, wedding plans were in the works so I knew a proposal was coming soon but I really thought he’d make it a birthday something.

That’s why when he showed up, I didn’t suspect anything. Naturally we just started chatting about the introduction party. I had mentioned that I hadn’t told my friends yet since he hadn’t proposed officially and in that instance, he got up and said I should come to my studio to give him the books (that I had borrowed from him for a shoot).

I was wondering ‘cos he had come many weekends after the shoot and I had told him to sort out his books but he didn’t listen. Well, I followed moments after and typically, I continued with what I was saying about not having told my friends since he didn’t respond and was seemingly engrossed with his books. Then he justed started laughing and I’m like “what’s funny?”, then he goes “you’ve not told your friends about our introduction and you still don’t have a ring on your finger…awwww”, raising my hand and really laughing.
I moved away from him forming sulking since he was making fun of me. Then he pulled me to himself and said “oya sorry lemme sing for you”. I’m like, “I don’t want to hear any song”, rolling my eyes in my mind- “wetin concern singing for this matter now?” He said he was serious as I sometimes ask him to sing, so I said ok. He held me close with my head on his shoulder and started singing Luther Vandross’ ‘Dance With My Father’ whilst stroking my hair and kissing my face, did the last verse in his own words “…I would love to be your husband as long as I live. Now I’m going on my knees…”
and it was in that moment I saw the opened box with the ring in front of me, it happened so fast I didn’t know where it came from. Then he went on one knee and slid it on my finger. I was too surprised to talk.

What I Like About Our Proposal
Even though I was expecting a more dramatic proposal knowing the kind of things he writes about, I ended up loving the way it turned out- more private and intimate.

I like that it happened in my house and in a room which holds many memories for me. Its the same room I had cried myself to sleep many times heart broken. It’s also where I launched off my dream of fashion designing, moving from a bedroom to a fashion workshop. I like that he honoured my late dad in his own way with the song. He asked if I knew why he chose that song and I nodded.
I like that I was truly surprised for the first time ever! Because I always figure things out somehow. Even though I knew the proposal was coming, he pulled it off when I least expected!

Foluso’s Advice for Singles

When it comes to relationships, you can’t be too careful. Don’t fight it and don’t generalise. Let God take care of you.
Comparison is the killer. Don’t compare your relationship with another. Be patient and understanding.
Pray together. Possibly, set aside a day when you fast together. It works!

Awwww! so so lovely.

5  Forum / The Buzz Central / Kemi Adetiba Settles Church She Allegedly Duped 2 Years After Arrest on: 12-09-2014 07:39 AM

Two years after her arrest, popular TV personality, Kemi Adetiba has settled the church she allegedly duped.

A letter dated February 7th, 2014 written by The God Bless Nigeria Church explained that they have reached an agreement with her.

Kemi defended herself few hours ago on Instagram with a copy of the letter.

Read what she said below and see a copy of the letter after:

“Two years ago I was delivered one of the biggest lessons of my life and career. I landed in Paris to an urgent message from a friend asking if I had seen the blogs. Without much information given, I logged on with trepidation to find huge headlines, “Kemi Adetiba arrested for fraud” some even saying I was at that moment locked up (Meanwhile I was in my hotel room in Paris, mind you). There were incredible stories about my father begging authorities for my release, me crying and promising I would pay back money I had ‘defrauded’, Yo being kicked out of the Dance reality show I was hosting at the time for this reason. Save a few lines I made via Twitter I never properly addressed this. I’ve been taught never to fight the fight on social media as everything you say just ends up being twisted and turned against you. I also promised myself I wouldn’t be the one to vindicate myself. Everyone would expect me to deny if course but I insisted that it would be others to vindicate me.

I am ecstatic to have come out of that situation not only alive but even better. If it was my career “they” were going for, it has only made it better. My career is on a greater high than it was. Going for my integrity as a person and in this industry failed woefully. God ALWAYS vindicates his own. I’ve had this letter for ages. I asked for it from the church I was purported to have duped not for public consumption, but proof to have if ever this came up in future business dealings. And I didn’t have to beg or repay any money “defrauded” for it. However, on the constant nudging of my parents I’ve agreed to release it. Because the Internet is riddled with the former headline, it is their thinking I need something in record as well to refute that.

Special note to media houses (some of them), understand that you are playing with people’s lives, businesses and even marriages sometimes. The pen might be mightier that the sword, but not in this case… I Won!! This is the first and the last I will address this.

8  Forum / Politics / “Ribadu Left APC & Join PDP To Become Governor, Now They Hv Dump Him” – Rabiu on: 12-09-2014 07:33 AM

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has made the pioneer chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Malam Nuhu Ribadu, a laughing stock, Goveror Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State said on Wednesday.

He made the remark in Kano while receiving merit awards from two groups, APC Kwankwasiyya Amana, Bauchi state chapter; and Nigeria 774 Kwankwasiyya Merger: Kwankwaso for President.

“After he left the APC for the PDP, his new party did not find him worthy of its gubernatorial ticket. I am sure the PDP stakeholders in Adamawa are now laughing at him. We sympathize with him.”

The governor however called on the Adamawa electorate to think wisely and vote for the APC candidate in the forthcoming gubernatorial election, considering the hardships caused to the state by the PDP central government.

He appealed to them to pay back good for good by dumping the PDP and voting for the APC which is ready to bring about positive and realistic changes in the whole country.

“Anybody who voted for PDP, which within five years could not lead the nation rightly has deceived himself,” lamented the governor, pointing out that APC has come up with a credible candidate in person of Senator Muhammad Jibrila Bindaw who can salvage Adamawa state.

He alleged that the Adamawa state PDP chose a candidate whom most of their supporters see as incompetent, hoping that people in the state should opt for APC, describing it as the best party in Nigeria.

Earlier, the chairmen of the NGOs Murtala Abdullahi Dass and Habu Ibrahim Fagge appealed to Kwankwaso to enter the race for the presidency come 2015, assuring him they will mobilize Nigerians to support him.

Meanwhile, Governor Kwankwaso has thanked the state APC stakeholders’ effort in mobilizing people across the nation to support his presidential aspiration in the 2015 general election.

Meeting with them at the Kano Government House also on Wednesday, the governor said that most of the people he met at the APC Northwest rally in Sokoto told him that the message has reached them and they are in support of the aspiration.

He therefore urged the stakeholders to continue to enlighten Nigerians until the APC wins the 2015 general elections. He also reiterated that he’s still consulting on the 2015 presidential contest and will make his decision known to the general public very soon.

9  Forum / Family / Chris & Anita Oyakhilome’s Divorce: 7 Key Marriage Lessons For Married Couples on: 12-09-2014 07:32 AM

Christ Embassy’s President and First Lady are on the verge of ending their marriage. At this stage, it will take divine intervention for a reconciliation.

A Christ Embassy church member identified as Jenny Doris recently itemised 7 key marriage lessons to learn from the messy divorce case.

Read it below:

1. Never Deprive your spouse with attention, Love and affection. These Three ingredients are necessary in every relationship.
2. Never Leave Your Role As A Wife To Housemaids Or Personal Staffs Even If Your Husband is a King Or a Pastor.

3. Never Encourage Long Distance Relationship In Your Marriage. Work Hard To Make It As Short As You Can If You Have To. Never Neglect Your Spouse Thinking that Money Can Keep Her Warm At Night And Play Fatherly Role To Your Kids.

4. Celebrate Every Occasion With Your Family~ Christmas, Sallah, Anniversaries, Birthdays etc. And Don’t Forget To Celebrate Your Spouse In Every Given Opportunity You Have.

5. No Matter How Holy Ghost Filled And Tongue Talking Christian You Are, Listen and Apologize When You Are Wrong And Make Amends Before Your Marriage Breaks. Make Changes On Time, When You See It Is Not Working.

6. Court Is Not A Solution To Family Problems, The Solution Lies In The Spouse. If Only The Spouse Can Reduce Their Pride And Ego And Accept Their Wrongs and Make Amends On The Areas That Are Not Working, They Will Live Happily Ever.

7. Never Forget To Recognise Your Wife As The Most Important Being In Your Life After God, And Never Forget That Your Husband Is The Most Important Being In Your Life. That’s Why Michelle Obama Is Always Beside President Barrack Obama.

A successful marriage requires tolerance, understanding and effective communication.

Save yourself the shame and save your marriage, the earlier the better.
10  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / EBOLA! We don't want to resume - Teachers on: 12-09-2014 07:29 AM

The Nigerian Union of Teachers has threatened to go on strike if the Federal Government fails to put in place measures to protect its members and pupils from contracting the deadly Ebola Virus Disease before the   resumption of schools.But the Federal Government says there is no going back on the date since there is no scientific basis for schools to remain shut beyond the September 22 resumption date announced by the Minister of Education, Ibrahim Shekarau.

The NUT National President, Michael Alogba told Punch
“In any sane society, decision such as this will not be taken until the government and all stakeholders have met and discussed the issue at stake and are sure that the nation is scientifically and medical free from the scourge.But this is not the case in our country. When they arrived at the early October 13 date, they wrote us and we agreed with their argument but when this new date was given, they did not because of the influence of some powerful school owners who put pressure on them (Federal Government) to announce the September 22 date....
“Anyway, we have written to tell them that if the   Federal Government does not shift the date and provide all necessary safety measures in schools before Monday next week, all NUT leaders will meet in Abuja by 9am on Tuesday to decide our fate by ourselves. “Though I don’t want to preempt the outcome of the meeting but as teachers who have families and who should protect our future, I mean our students, we will shun the classes; we will call for strike.What kind of government is this, don’t they know that children can never be as hygienic as adults? Don’t they know that the immunity level of children is not as high as that of adults? Why do you want to open schools when you have not cleared out the virus; when you still have about 400 people under surveillance in Port Harcourt and Lagos?
“You are aware of what is happening at the Obafemi Awolowo University. How are we sure that there is no primary or secondary school pupil that has had   contact with an Ebola patient.It’s good that the   NMA (Nigerian Medical Association) has spoken and we have told them too that we would not cooperate with them. That   is why we are going to take a drastic action on Tuesday to protect ourselves and our children.I can tell you that we will shun schools; we won’t cooperate with them. In other words, we will embark on strike.”

11  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / GUESS WHAT? Humans will have evolved into 'different' species by 2050... on: 12-09-2014 07:17 AM

By 2050, a completely new type of human will evolve as a result of radical new technology, behaviour, and natural selection.This is according to Cadell Last, a researcher at the Global Brain Institute, who claims mankind is undergoing a major 'evolutionary transition'.

In less than four decades, Mr Last claims we will live longer, have children in old age and rely on artificial intelligence to do mundane tasks.Instead of living fast and dying young, Mr Last believes humans will live slow and die old.Your 80 or 100 is going to be so radically different than your grandparents,' Mr Last says

By 2040, cabs will be driven by Google robots, shops will become showrooms for online outlets and call centres will be staffed by intelligent droids.That’s the scenario depicted in recent research which suggests robots could be taking over our lives and jobs in less than 30 years.

The competition for work caused by a rise in the robots population will see us heading to surgeons for ‘additional processing power for our brains’,

We may also be requesting bionic implants for our hands that will make us able to perform tasks as fast as any machine.Futurologists, commissioned by global job search website, say workers will have less job security and will work more unsociable hours.
Those who take these risks and innovate with their own bodies will be the biggest earners in 2040, they claim.
However, the study added that workers may be left with poor eyesight, smaller sexual organs, and constantly-furrowed brows as they struggle to keep up to life in the 21st century.

13  Forum / The Buzz Central / STUPIDITY! 25 year old woman marries cardboard photo of Robert Pattinson on: 12-09-2014 07:14 AM

 Lauren Adkins, 25, is ­married to a life-size cut-out of vampire Edward Cullen from the Twilight movies, played by Robert Pattinson.

She told Uk Mirror
 “We got hitched in Las Vegas last year and I’m sure we’re happier than most newlyweds.People might think I’m crazy but my flat-pack R-Patz is the closest I’ll get to the real thing and he’s the one for me.For as long as I can remember I’ve been ­obsessed with romantic fairytale endings.When I was a child, I watched the Disney ­versions of Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs and Cinderella until the tapes wore out.”
It was different from any love story I’d seen ­before – after all, the leading character was as likely to suck your blood as open the door for you. I was obsessed.Leading man Edward was quiet and ­mysterious, yet superhuman and invincible. And so sexy.
I tore through the books and I queued outside the cinema when the film was released, desperate for my first glimpse of Edward.And when Robert Pattinson appeared on screen at midnight, he was perfect. I knew that very minute I wanted to marry him.”

 "Of course he was made from cardboard, but that didn’t matter to me. Suddenly I was taken over with an urge to have him.I grabbed his rigid torso and stuffed him under my arm before marching to the counter and handing over a $20 note.Then, cramming him into my car I headed back to my apartment where I ripped off his cellophane and stood him at the foot of my bed. For the rest of the night I couldn’t take my eyes off him. Then I started thinking – the guys I’d dated before had all been so hopeless, I might as well have been with a cardboard cut-out. So where was the shame in taking him out with me?”

A friend who thought I was going mad said one night: ‘If you love him so much why don’t you marry him?’ Her words rang in my ears. She was right. Why didn’t I?”
“I walked down the aisle in January in the white wedding dress I’ve always dreamt of.I held the reception at an art gallery and ordered champagne and a five-tier cake to share with my 50 guests.The day cost £2,000 but I didn’t care – I wanted to do it properly.We had our honeymoon in LA and I wanted us to climb up to the Hollywood sign together.”I had to carry him, and we had to do it at night because he can’t be in the sun.But everyone makes sacrifices for the man they love, right?”
