A message from Mercy Johnson-Okojie
2013 has been an incredible year for me. I couldn’t ask for more. It is one year I won’t forget in a hurry.

How can I forget 2013, the year I had the honour of being the most searched Nollywood actress for the third consecutive year. I am most grateful to the fans who worked the keyboard or keypad reading about me online.

Kim K shows off Xmas gift from Kanye, a hand-painted Hermes bag

Yesterday Kim Kardashian showed off the Christmas gift she got from Kanye West on her instagram page. It's a tan Hermes Birkin leather handbag (pictured above).. You would think it's not a big deal because Kim has lots of Hermes bags which retails for around $10,000 to $30,000, but...this bag is different. After buying the bag, Kanye commissioned legendary American contemporary visual artist George Condo to hand-paint a nude on the front of the bag. The design features several nude female figures and a bare-chested monster.

George Condo's paintings are sold for hundreds of thousand of dollars...one even recently sold for $1.3 million. See more photos below...
