Beyonce Puts ‘Fake Baby Bump’ Rumors To Rest


The ‘World’s Most Beautiful Woman’ sets the record straight!

During Beyonce‘s highly publicist pregnancy, rumors began to swirl that the performer was faking her pregnancy to preserve her body and garner media attention. These claims were exacerbated by a TV interview in which her baby bump appeared to “fold” and “crumble” as she sat down–it was a PR disaster to say the least.

Now, four months after the birth of Billboard‘s youngest charter Blue Ivy, it seems Bouncy is finally ready to speak out. See what the 30 year old singer/actress told PEOPLE Magazine after the jump and sound-off below.


When probed about her alleged faux pregnancy Beyonce responded with: “That was crazy. It wasn’t hurtful, it was just crazy [I thought] ‘Where did they come up with this?”

Adding to the rumored origami baby bump theory she explained, “It was a fabric that folded — does fabric not fold? Oh my gosh, so stupid.”

Case closed.

Australian billionaire to rebuild Titanic


An Australian billionaire announced plans on Monday to build an “unsinkable” version of the Titanic, 100 years after the original sank after hitting an iceberg.

Titanic II is expected to make its maiden voyage from England to North America, the old Titanic route, in late 2016.

“It is going to be designed so it won’t sink,” mining and tourism tycoon Clive Palmer told reporters. “It will be designed as a modern ship with all the technology to ensure that doesn’t happen.”

The original Titanic, the largest liner in world when it was launched and dubbed “virtually unsinkable” at the time, sank after hitting an iceberg on April 15, 1912, killing 1,517 passengers and crew.

Palmer said his new shipping company, Blue Star Line Pty Ltd, had signed a memorandum of understanding with the Chinese state-owned company CSC Jinling Shipyard to build Titanic II. The original ship was operated by the White Star Line.

The design work had started for the new Titanic, which will have the same dimension as its old version with 840 rooms and nine decks.

Plus-Size Actress, Eniola Badmus' Craze For Davido, Any String Attached?


When you compare the size between Eniola Badmus popularly known as 'Gbogbo Big Girlz in Omo Ghetto and teenage singer, Davido, the result is an obvious one.

As at the time of writing this story, both Eniola Badmus of BlackBerry Babes movie fame and Davido of Dami Duro hit single are currently in Canada.

Davido arrived Canada just few days ago while Eniola has spent more than one week in Canada.

Sources say that Eniola has been on the look out for Davido asking when he would storm Canada for them to see each other.

Just hours ago, Eniola has been tracking Davido on twitter to get his exact location.

On of her tweets to Davido reads, "letz hook up on Islington on 401, Toronto." Another tweet reads, "what's up dearie, [I] am waiting for you in Canada. When are you coming in?"

We hope what we were told about Eniola Badmus and Davido are false. Fingers crossed.

Ibori turns ‘born again’ in London prison .


FORMER Delta State governor, James Onanefe ibori has experienced the golden truth about the biblical saying that “whatever a man soweth, that he shall reap.” Ibori sowed the seed of corruption in his 8-year rule as Delta State helmsman, he was crafty enough to escape imprisonment in Nigeria, but not in United Kingdom where he was slammed with 13 years imprisonment by a South-Wark Crown Court in London. Now, James Ibori is alleged to be full of regrets for his past misdeeds. He has also reportedly turned a new leaf.

The former Delta State governor is now an ardent student of the Bible which he carries always as a companion.

“Ibori has been visited by the Holy Spirit; he is no longer the same. From the way he now talks, it seems old things have passed away and all things have become new. I observed that he said a little prayer when he alighted from the prison van and when he was standing in the dock. I heard something like God is in control from him as he walked away from the court. He was really looking very sober, I think he may have become a born again Christian,” the source said, adding:

“Ibori inferred in a censored message he sent to one of his relatives who interacted with me that he spent most of his days in detention reading the Bible and praying fervently. He said he has fasted about four days in prison. He described his prison cell as being okay but not too comfortable.”

3 die in auto crash involving Gov Adams Oshiomhole's convoy


Three journalists have been confirmed dead in an auto crash yesterday involving the convoy of the Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

A statement by the Special Adviser (Media) to Oshiomhole, Tony Iyare, said the news men were those with the African Independent Television and Independent Television. While a staff of AIT died, two who work with ITV lost their lives.


Iyare said in the statement titled: Oshiomhole’s convoy in road mishap: "Three journalists died while several others including security details were injured when a tipper lorry rammed into the convoy of Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

"The accident occurred about 12.45pm, shortly after the convoy which was coming from an Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) rally in Afuze, passed Warrake, located in Owan East Local Government Area of the state.
"The incident happened when the lorry lost control, veering off its track and heading straight for the Governor’s car missing it by the whiskers.

"It later hit the Toyota Land Cruiser conveying security details which immediately somersaulted. The lorry also hit the bus conveying the Government House Press Crew.

"The three journalists – two from Independent Television (ITV) and one from African Independent Television (AIT) lost their lives. Several other journalists and security details who sustained various degrees of injuries are now being treated at Otibhokhai Specialist Hospital, Irrua and Central Hospital, Benin City.

"Oshiomhole, visibly shaken by the unfortunate event personally supervised the ferrying of the casualties to the hospital. He later paid condolence visits to the bereaved families. The planned rally to kick off Oshiomhole’s campaign in Edo South Senatorial Zone scheduled for Saturday was put off as a result of the incident."

STEPHANIE OKEREKE OPENS UP ON N100M PARIS WEDDING



 The much talked about wedding of Stephanie Okereke-Linus has come and gone.

The talented thespian finally married her longtime beau,Idahosa on April 21,2012 in Paris,France.

About 400 close colleagues and friends of the actress from all over the world attended.


It was the sort of dream wedding the actress has always fantasized about, and the aura of Paris and a castle further helps to deepen that romantic and enchanting feeling as she enters into matrimony.

It would be recalled that their affair, was made public in 2010.Shortly after,Linus took a bold step and proposed to the actress on a dinner date at a posh location in Ikoyi,Lagos,after which there have been many stories on their wedding on several occasions, which never held.

The last wedding date of Stephanie and Linus that circulated was February this year, but in an interview she had, the actress debunked the wedding rumours.

After many of her fans have waited endlessly for the wedding, she took the industry by surprise when they both chose an Exclusive Castle in Paris for their wedding, which according to the actress is Nigerian Wedding of the Year.

We learnt to wed at the castle cost £100,000.

The wedding between Stephanie and Idahosa Linus is estimated at almost N100 million!

The Nollywood’s newest and hottest bride, Mrs. Stephanie Idahosa, in a chat with newsmen said words cannot express her feelings on the huge success recorded at the wedding with her heartthrob, Mr. Linus.

“We thank God and our families for standing by us throughout the period of this wedding. We are also grateful to all of you that came from far and wide to honour us with your presence.”

On why they settled for Paris, France, as venue for the very expensive nuptials that was reeking in opulence, the cerebral screen goddess had this to say:

“I’ve always dreamt of a fairytale wedding, especially as a child growing up. I’ve always imagined a fairytale wedding with my prince charming in a castle on an Island. And thank God that my husband finally made that possible inside this 16th century castle in Cernay, Paris, France.

It was a fairytale dream come true.

It’s the ambience fairy-tale like. It is reminiscent of culture, of peace and love; something away from the chaos we get used, something fresh, new and different

It’s a beautiful feeling to be in love and be with the one person you wish to spend the rest of your life withshe gushed with smiles.

Stephanie concluded by telling what women really want in marriage"Love, peace, security. A man to share your dreams with. One who truly respects you and sees beyond just your beauty but your true essence. A real man with real values"

Karen Igho is not engaged?


BBA Winner karen Igho has refuted engagement rumour that spread like wildfire on blogs and social media.
   Speaking through her publicist, Karen says she has  followed with intrigue in the past few days, rumours and gist circulating her supposed ‘Engagement to a Mystery man’ following her tweets on Twitter.

"I have requested that this news statement be made available to the public on the matter.I appreciates the curiosity and goodwill displayed by my fans, critics and friends in the media regarding her affairs; i however prefers to keep details on my ‘relationship’ intentions away from the public glare until when appropriate. However, to clear the air on the alleged tweets, they were random thoughts from me  after an admirer and fan proposed to me. Celebrities often experience the same thing; i only tweeted about one of such experience randomlyIn the meantime, i am  actively evolving my brand name and business while taking on active roles in Nollywood and other related entertainment initiatives across Africa., “I am not married yet; but I am fully engaged to my passion in entertainment - acting and modeling; while actively promoting good causes and charity”.

  She added , the picture of the fingers with a ring posted by her on twitter belongs to her sister .

Nollywood star Ramsey Nouah quits acting



Popular Nollywood actor, Ramsey Nouah has revealed that he is quitting acting after being in the field for about 20 years, although he noted that he is not abandoning the movie industry entirely.
Ramsey hinted that he would go into directing.
“I think I’ve had my fair share. To my fans and loved ones, I know they’ll always want to see me on screen but as they say,It’s best to leave when the ovation is loudest.
“I want to leave a very strong legacy. I believe I have left a very strong imprint in that line.
“There’s no possible way you can mention ‘Nollywood’ without mentioning Ramsey Nouah.” Ramsey Nouah said in an interview with nigeriafilms.com.
“I’ll be going behind the scenes. I’ll still be acting a bit here and there, but it will phase out for directing eventually.
“For a while now, I’ve not really been on the screen, and that’s because I don’t want to act just because I want to be on TV.
“I only want to be associated with the kind of movies that are poised to take the industry to another level, which is where we are headed now. Plus, I want to focus on working behind the scenes.”
Ramsey has starred in several movies such as Private Storm, Dangerous Twins, Figurine which won him an award as best actor in a leading role at the AMAA 2010.
Nigerian movie industry you mean?
Well, to me, there is only one movie industry, and that is the Nigerian one. That’s my opinion, of course, because I know a whole lot of people are targeting Hollywood. But for me, I’m not keen on getting into Hollywood. I’m of the opinion that ‘Nollywood’ will get to a point where it will be very big sometime soon. Don’t forget, most of the people targeting Hollywood are doing so because of the pay, and then maybe the fame on a much bigger stage. For me, however, I think the fame I already have on the platform of ‘Nollywood’ suffices.
Are you quitting acting?
I think I’ve had my fair share. To my fans and loved ones, I know they’ll always want to see me on screen, but as they say, it’s best to leave when the ovation is loudest. I want to leave a very strong legacy. I believe I have left a very strong imprint in that line. There’s no possible way you can mention ‘Nollywood’ without mentioning Ramsey Nouah.
So what’s next for you?
Well, I’ll be going behind the scenes. I’ll still be acting a bit here and there, but it will phase out for directing eventually. For a while now, I’ve not really been on the screen, and that’s because I don’t want to act just because I want to be on TV. I only want to be associated with the kind of movies that are poised to take the industry to another level, which is were we are headed now. Plus, I want to focus on working behind the scenes.
