Why Tuface begged me to marry him -Annie Macaulay

The wife of the iconic African pop star, Annie Macaulay Idibia has opened up on why Tuface Idibia begged her to marry him. In a revealing interview she granted Jara, a TV programme on Africa Magic channel on DSTV, the singer’s wife reconstructed the scenario of how Tuface proposed to her and why he chose her among the other women in his life. Hear her: “He called me up one morning that I should meet him in Lagos so that we can hang out. He said his friends are around and they want to take us out. So, I agreed to see him. I remember it was a particular friend of ours that was around that day, although I would not like to mention his name. “And when I got to Lagos that day, he was like ‘let’s go to the club.’ When we got to the club, the place was totally empty. Obviously confused, I asked him, “baby, what are we doing here, it’s empty” and before I turned back, my brothers and friends showed up. I was so perplexed that I had to ask what everybody was doing around there and they said they heard we were there and they came. “Just about few minutes after, Tuface picked up the microphone and I thought he was going to do all the normal hypes he does when he goes to the club. But he shocked me. He started saying things about how I have always been there for him since day one. How I have sacrificed alot for him. How I have cried and stood strong during his trying moments. The truth is, he said so many things I can’t remember now. He said so many wonderful things that sent me into another world and I couldn’t even hear the other things he said. “I didn’t even know when he walked up to me and he said “Please, will you marry me?” And I was like, “Can you imagine? What’s going on here?” he was saying so many things that I can’t even remember. It all blew my head. “Although, it has not been easy since we had our traditional marriage. The truth is, it is not easy to be married to a superstar but I still live my normal life. Right now, I feel 24 hours is not enough for me because I have my husband, my daughter and myself to take care of. It has really been crazy and God knows I have been trying my best. I wish I have more time to handle all of this. “Just because of the lack of time, I haven’t been able do my normal acting jobs. I would still go on to do it soon because my husband is very supportive of my career and everything I do. As a married woman, I would be more selective with the roles I take now. I would do away from controversial roles but that doesn’t mean if I see a good storyline I wouldn’t do it. “One of the reasons I would be careful with the roles I take up now is because I am married. And when you are married you have to be able to manage your career such that it won’t affect your home front. In any case, you need to learn some tips which will help you carry on in the marriage. But before that, you need to be sure that the man loves you as much as you love him. Even if it is not as much as you love him, but be sure he loves you. You also need to be patient. Men are like babies and babies are very annoying. You need to scold them but you should pamper them more. You need to work on yourself so that you can be proud of yourself. Don’t fake anything. “Very soon, Tuface and I plan to do our white wedding and you will all be invited and even though it will be something quiet. We don’t want to make too much noise about it. We just want a beautiful and memorable event.”

I Have Never Married In My Life - 48 Years Old Daughter Of Oyo State Governor

MsKemi Omololu-Olunloyo is a Global Anti-Violence Youth Activist and an Entrepreneur. She spent 38 years of her life overseas and it was recorded that Toronto Police Spokesman and Social Media Officer, Constable Scott Mills told the media in various interviews about her immense contributions to the curbing of series of crimes in Canada.
Omololu was featured on the cover of Canada’s “Industry Magazine” in 2010 as one of the most powerful women in Toronto’s entertainment industry. She is indeed a strong woman with guts, who doesn't believe that the greatest achievement in life is marriage. "I am 48, single and I have never been married. I’m a mom of two and three Godchildren who all make me happy. I plan to get married to a Nigerian man who can tolerate my extroversion and love my brashness. There’s no rush, yes you heard it right. NO DAMN RUSH!! As I arrived home after 38 years, all my classmates everywhere here are single moms and DIVORCED, many abused by their Nigerian husbands. Once I get married, it’s forever…and I may just throw in another kid at 50. Why not? I’m still healthy." says Kemi How do you express your patriotism? I am patriotic because Nigeria is my country and I will never carry any other passport like many Nigerians do. I have been living in US, UK and Canada for the past 38 years! Nigerians deserve all these “great amenities” that other countries have. I even named my upcoming TV show “419 Reasons To Love Nigeria”. I express my patriotism by defending Nigeria’s interests abroad and letting bad Nigerians know that they cannot continue to represent us with financial fraud, domestic abuse, murders, drug and human trafficking. Once I expressed that, many fake Nigerians said I hate their “tribe”.
What has been your best service to humanity? Reducing gun violence in Toronto, Canada and ending drug abuse in Baltimore, Maryland schools by creating Drug-Free schools in the Clinton administration. I lived in Baltimore for 15 years and received an award from the city Mayor and Governor of Maryland in 1997 as “Maryland’s Most Beautiful.” I have received a law enforcement award in Canada, cited by many media outlets and also the African Entertainment award for Community Contribution this month. It’s not about awards though; it’s about getting the job done. Gun violence has reduced in Toronto after I left and drug use in schools by students in Maryland is almost non-existent. No one can claim to rise above fallibility, in the course of discharging these services, what mischievous things have you done? If you want to call it “mischievous”, fine, I have directly reported alleged gun murderers and their entire families and friends to police investigating homicides in Canada. It’s called “snitching” and everyone must do it. My twitter handle is @Snitchlady. Why must someone take a life and walk around freely? How do you feel when you read nasty reports about yourself? I don’t pay them any attention. I turn away from negativity and they just empower me more. One obsessed gun loving white Canadian, Shawn D McQuaid, even built a blog about me and tweeted about me. He was arrested by Toronto Police’s Detective Glen McBryde in April 10th, 2012 and was charged with criminal harassment and mischief among seven other charges. His case is before the courts. Kaanayo Wachukwu blogged that I spent time in a Jamaican jail and had four children with four fathers and was denied permanent residence in the US after 30 years, it’s all lies. I have never been to the Caribbean, of course to live in America 30 years, I had permanent residence and would have become a citizen if I opted to. I have two children not even four. Later on, I heard Wachukwu was wanted by the U.K Metropolitan police for prostituting young girls and pimping them. I plan to sue him as I have sent my fingerprints to Jamaica to prove him wrong to teach him a lesson. If you mess with me, I will mess with you for a long time! They spend 24 hours of their lives tweeting about me. I mark them spam and stopped seeing their feeds a long time ago. Out of all these things written; which ones are actually true and which ones are mere rumours? None is true. I don’t talk to Nigerian “bloggers” except Stella Dimoko-Korkus who is a professional, as many don’t know the meaning of libel and slander. I don’t discuss my family. They are too private and I respect their privacy. How long did you stay in Canada? Five years and two months. Are you more likely to avoid conflict or engage in it head-on? I engage in all conflicts, please pardon my language, I lived in North America for 35 years. I don’t entertain bullsh*t! Why? I practiced pharmacy for 28 years and fired six people in my career. Why do I have to tolerate lazy people when I have people that want to work? Like I said, a low esteemed white man in Canada bullied me, I had him arrested. I’m not “reporting to Facebook.” I take action. Toronto Police Spokesman and Social Media Officer, Constable Scott Mills told the media in various interviews about how you've been so helpful in curbing series of crimes in Canada; how do you feel about this, coming at a time of your deportation? Officer Mills’ comments came before my deportation. Mills called my work “Nobel Peace Prize Worthy”. One day, I will win that Nobel Peace Prize for ending gun violence across the globe. Now that you are in Nigeria; what’s next? I want to take my brand HipHossip to a higher level. I was featured on the cover of Canada’s “Industry Magazine” in 2010 as one of the most powerful women in Toronto’s entertainment industry. I now want to empower Nigerian music artistes; I’m ready to invest in their careers.HipHossip is the leading music blog in North America. On October 17, it turns five. I just incorporated a concert booking agency for music artistes around the world as well as expand my music publicity arena and artistes development services. I am a business woman and if it is not about my money, I’m not interested. I have represented so many artistes for free in the past in US and Canada when I launched it in 2007. Now, it’s straight business. I book artistes on my media partner’s networks like BET shows, US, Canadian, U.K and various other MTV networks…and yes I was the one that booked WizKid on MTV Canada on July 20th to appear on MTV LIVE as tweeted by me, though he could not make it last minute. You must be known in every corner of the globe like Lady Gaga or Justin Bieber. We have the talent!! I discovered several global artistes by interviewing them before they were famous, working on editorial alongside their labels and getting them big. They are Ciara, Young Jeezy, Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber, Knaan, Classified, Fefe Dobson, Drake, Ludacris, Kanye West to name a few. I would like to offer my services to artistes in Nigeria. Some talented ones who’re ready and ripe for the international market that I would love to work with are TuFace, Ikechukwu, Davido, Darey, Ice Prince and even Weird MC and Mavin boss, Don Jazzy both whom I interviewed in early summer due to come out in my anniversary special. I also created a philanthropic initiative and charity for using music to empower several things. One of those is to end gun violence and I want your readers to use my hashtag #MsKemi and #EndGunViolence in their tweets. HipHossip LLC can be followed on twitter @HipHossip. Aside from my music passion; my dream is to become a Nollywood actress and screenwriter. I have several scripts written in my secret vault which I would love to sell to directors interested. I can act in any capacity. My life is a stage with different curtains daily. Have you attended any social event since you stepped into the soil of Nigeria? None! Where are the “real” parties? I’ve actually been brainstorming and travelling around my hometown visiting elders, talking to the masses by introducing myself (I am a talkative and they seem to like my North American accent) and videotaping my proposed TV show all over Ibadan, talking to the everyday person and kid on the streets about anything. While in Canada, how did you escape various attacks that came your way? If you meant physical attacks, none ever came my way. I get threats all day online about murders but I just challenge the trolls to show up at a specific venue in Toronto’s hood and come with their fists, leaving the guns at home and not being cowards. White Canadians are the ones most intimidated by the bold ones like me. What’s your strongest sense? I know good music when I hear it especially paying attention to details. Sound tickles me. Since I’ve been in Nigeria, I’ve heard Ibadan rooster cocks crowing at 2am and Muslim priests waking up the whole neighborhood at 5am. What are the best steps you’ve ever taken in an effort to improve your health and beauty? At 48, I have the body of a 25-year old, say my friends. I wash my face with rainwater. For some reason, this is why I have a fresher skin. It must rain and there’s plenty of it here in Nigeria. I save it in a bucket. It’s God’s given. What’s one pleasure you enjoy too much to give up? Social Media, specifically, Facebook and Twitter, Pinterest and Tumblr. I am the first known Nigerian to sign on Facebook and thus the reason I’m called the “Queen of Facebook” in your rival magazine. My statuses are real, no sugarcoating and I tear up Nigerians all day with the issues. Some like it and some don’t. These days, you will find me empowering youth on my new fan page. Facebook.com/MyYoungNigeria. It’s still quiet but I will be launching it big soon. I joined Facebook in 2004 in the Harvard University network and was part of the 2006 beta testing that launched it to the public. I use Facebook for my businesses, causes and clients. Facebook.com/HipHossip is my music page. How often do you read the newspaper? which sections do you turn to first? I read newspapers 15 times a day online and hard copy. My first section is CRIME and music news.
In one sentence, how would you describe yourself? A multi-talented, versatile and strong Nigerian woman. Would you describe yourself as an extrovert or an introvert? Extrovert! Enthusiastic, talkative, assertive and brash. What’s something about yourself that you hope will change? Being mean to people right in front of them, online or in person. I want them to change their foolishness so I have to be tough! It’s not a form of bullying which some have called it. What books have made a big impact on you? “Leadership” by Rudi Guliani (Former New York Mayor). His book and my activism in North American communities have steered me to plan to contest in the 2015 election for Oyo State. My state needs money for development and infrastructure. The people here are smart, intelligent and they need a strong woman like me in the National Assembly come 2015. Many politicians in Oyo always stay one term, with me it’s going to be more than that. I get the job done! I don’t want to experience political office with do or die campaigns and there would be no contracts for friends and families. I want to be a mean and tough lawmaker. People First! How do you typically react in a sudden, extreme and pressure-filled crisis? Remember, I own a PR firm and though it is managed by my staff, I handle most of the crises. Keminications PR is at Facebook.com/Keminications. How tolerant are you? I have a thick skin. I am a firm and no nonsense lady. Some men find it very intimidating. What fear would you like to overcome? Fear ‘ke’? There’s nothing in fear but fear itself is what one US President said. However, I don’t like snakes. There are lots of different cobras in my dad’s exotic garden at Molete, Ibadan. How would you describe one of your happiest childhood memories? My childhood memories were always my birthdays. My dad got the huge cakes and everyone must stay away from the cake or we were not taking the group picture. My dad is still my biggest influence. The haters write lies about him and they know I am still his favourite child even though we have occasional major beefs. Today, he visited me and asked me to write a list of what I wanted. I live a simple life like him. I could have written a new car, an I-Phone 5 and more material crap, but I wrote a list of market foods, fast foods and things for my apartment. It’s 10pm and he still sent his driver with everything, 20 cans of peak milk for my morning pap (ogi), case of Happy Hour juices, Chinese takeout and provisions like I was going to a boarding school. A 77-year-old man is taking care of his 48-year-old daughter. I love my dad! Who has made the biggest impact on you? No doubt, my dad, Victor Omololu-Olunloyo, the Late Mrs. Funmilayo Anikulapo-Kuti, Toronto Police, Constable Scott Mills and Toronto Sun’s Crime Reporter, Chris Doucette. These people know what’s going on in the world, speak the truth about it and even when the haters criticize them, the motto is–so be it. They say it and it’s heard! What terrible experience did you have in life? Getting deported from Canada “unofficially” for my outspoken views on the Canadian Federal Gun registry; my comments have angered white Canadians who love their guns and prefer to see the tremendous human tragedy that has consumed Toronto’s black community. I learned the hard way after telling my immigration case manager to go to hell and I will show up at the airport but he did not believe me sending nine armed border agents to my door and had me locked up for seven days, then taken from a maximum security prison to the airport. I lost all my personal belongings I worked for in that five years and was not allowed to pack my entire house. Most of my property was thrown out or donated. I came to Nigeria with nothing. My children have returned to their country, USA. The Canadians are not friendly and it is not the friendliest country in the world as portrayed in their false radio adverts in Nigeria. Two of our Nigerian girls are facing deportation as we speak and they are hiding out in a church sleeping on the floor because they worked without a work permit at a Walmart store. As reported by many Canadian newspapers, immigration agents were also tweeting my deportation appointments and dates as well as medical info from my files. I advise Nigerians to stay out of Canada. Many of our people who filed successful refugee claims are not working, many are simply living on the government and paying bills suffering day in day out in the quest for light and water. Kemi is the first Nigerian woman who is almost 50-years-old that have met, who's life is not taking over by the desperation to get married. Do you think more Nigerian ladies should be like this instead of marrying and divorcing anyhow?

Bulgarian Politician Escapes ‘Assassination Attempt’ After Gun Jams

A Bulgarian politician survived an extraordinary assassination attempt when a man stormed the stage and held a gun to his head as he was giving a speech.
Fortunately for Ahmed Dogan, leader of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms, the weapon misfired giving him time to react and hit the would-be assassins hand out of the way.
Before he can attempt a second shot the unidentified suspect is tackled to the ground by security guards and delegates attending the conference in Sofia. Television footage showed the man jumping out of the audience and interrupting a speech by 58-year-old Dogan, who has led the party for almost a quarter of a century.
Security guards and politicians are then seen beating and kicking the attacker as he is pinned to the ground. 'Ahmed Dogan is in good health. Everything is under control’, MRF official Ceyhan Ibryamov told journalists. Police said they had arrested a 25-year-old man from the Black Sea town of Burgas who was also carrying two knives.
The liberal MRF party represents ethnic Turks and other Muslims who make up about 12 percent of Bulgaria's 7.3 million-strong population. Dogan is seen as one of Balkan country's most influential political figures. The MRF was a junior partner in the previous Socialist-led cabinet. In 1996, former Prime Minister Andrei Lukanov was found shot dead near his home in Sofia, though attacks on politicians are rare.

Cossy Orjiakor shares obscéne pictures on twitter.






Nigerian actress, Cossy Orjiakor, has continued to tell the public that there is no difference between private and public assets.Over the weekend, the actress posted some of her latest pictures on Twitter. In a series of X-Rated poses, Cossy displays her famous king size breasts and went further to offer a glimpse of her not exactly ample buttocks. “I just got me a mad totographer. She is bad gon. Wanna share some pix,” she tweeted using her handle, @Cossydiva. The pictures provoked rage –honest and otherwise– something that drew what seemed a faux contrition from Cossy. On Wednesday, she expressed regret, claiming that a female friend of hers took those pictures in a guest house. “Now I wish I didn’t upload em last nite… I bet I was soooo in d mood. My bad…a girlfriend took this pix in a guest house, its not d playgirl mansion.. Cuz I only use playboy Bedsheet and curtains,” she tweeted.
Even after expressing “regret”, Cossy went ahead to use one of the pictures as her profile picture on Twitter, where it has continued to excite and offend eyes in equal measure.
