Foxy Brown Falls Down On Stage During a NYC Concert

Foxy Brown took to a New York City stage last night and after getting the crowd hyped up, she went on to fall. She was immediately swooped up by her body guards and fellow rappers who surrounded her preventing people from taking pictures. It is not known at this time if she finished her set or not. We can’t tell from the video if she was hurt from the fall or not but it looked like she left the stage limping on one foot.

Foxy has since tweeted her followers on twitter that she is in good condition and nothing is wrong with her. Foxy dearie…”You’ve got nothing to be embarrassed about we have all had at least a severe tripping situation that we’ve had to deal with once in our lifetimes! We’re more concerned with if the rapper is ok! Laugh it off and keep your head up girl! You were not the first and no way will you be the last to have it happen! Trust us….we know!”..someone posted

This may be very true as London O2 recently witnessed Tonto Dikeh’s fall on stage after getting the crowd hyped. What is going on?

Former Super Eagles midfielder, Thompson Oliha, has died at 44 years of age.
Oliha was born in October 1968 in Benin City, Nigeria and died in the early hours of Sunday 30th June ,2013
Until his death, Oliha was one of the coaches at the Kwara State Football Academy in Ilorin After retiring early at the age of 27 due to a knee injury that marred his career.

Oliha’s wish during his life time as narrated by his close friends and family was for the federal government to fulfil the promise of a house General Sani Abacha promised the Super Eagles for winning the Tunisia 1994 Nations Cup. Sadly, he did not see that come true in his life time.

Oliha becomes the third player to die among the much celebrated Nigeria 1994 squad, joining Uche Okafor and Rashidi Yekini in the great beyond.

FRAUD ON LINDA IKEJI'S BLOG?...HOW TRUE

THIS PIECE IS UNEDITED. SOURCE: NAIRALAND.COM...Read more on Barefaced Fraud on LINDA IKEJI BLOG

As a Social Media Marketer, I come across several clients who need to get Nigerian blogs, and news sites to review their products and services, which I never hesitate to direct them to eiher Nairaland or Bella Naija as the most effective websites for getting the highest click-through rates, and most honest comments.


Some clients prefer to get on gossip sites like Naij.com or Linda Ikeji Blog despite my reservations and reasons. Naij was recently made themselves popular for using Russian hackers to redirect Etisalat subscribers to their homepage at some point, and Linda Ikeji is known amongst bloggers for her horde of hired hands, using multiple identities, and devices to post dozens of comments and spark irrelevant arguments, not forgetting her vicious fabrications euphemised as idle gossip.

A Port Harcourt based artiste, M-Kaze, recently consulted with Bar Baric Entertainment for promotional services, for which among several bloggers and micro-bloggers, his label chose Linda Ikeji.

All the bloggers sent invoices and were pre-paid. By 9:41am on the next day, Tuesday, 18th June, 2013, Linda Ikeji was paid N50,000 (Fifty Thousand Naira) in line with her quotation, which indicated that the AD would be posted in 48 hours.

6 WAYS TO BE P DIDDY










































Continue to see 6 ways to become P.Diddy

THE GENERAL'S LOOT,15 YEARS AFTER DEATH

A total of 22.5 million euro has been recovered by the Federal Government from the confiscation on money laundered by General Sani Abacha.
Speaking at the ministerial platform in Abuja, the Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adoke said a total of 175 million euro was also recovered from the family of the late head of state following a confiscation order by the Supreme Court of Liechtenstein.
Mr Adoke listed measures taken by the federal government to reform the nation’s criminal justice system.
General Abacha had ruled Nigeria as a military Head of State between November 17, 1993 and June 8, 1998, when he died suddenly of a heart attack. As a result, General Abdulsalami Abubakar became the head of state and within a short time, he re-established democracy in Nigeria, arranging for general elections that resulted in the emergence of Olusegun Obasanjo assuming the presidency as the democratically elected leader of the country in 1999.
Before Mr Obasanjo took office, Mr Abubakar’s government had delivered a clear message that the late Abacha had looted huge sums, and they had to be restored. Members of the Abacha family and some of their accomplice then ‘voluntarily’ returned about $1 billion to the Federal Government. In 2002,

D'BANJ SIGNS N250M NAIRA DEAL WITH ETISALAT

D’banj continues to stamp his authority as the king of Nigeria’s new generation of musicians with the corporate deals he is pocketing.
The Kokomaster just got drenched in cash after striking another deal with Etisalat, a leading telecommunications company as a “super” brand ambassador.
This is coming after the comic actor, Hafis Oyetoro, better known as Saka, received a better endorsement cheque from MTN and conveniently dumped Etisalat, believed to be paying him less.
The “Oliver Twist” hit maker is said to have been paid up to five times the average amount other Nigerian musicians get. He was allegedly issued a N250 million (£1M) cheque by Etisalat.
D’banj has already shot some commercials for the firm which will soon be released.
It seems Etisalat has challenged MTN and others with D’banj catch.What would be MTN’s next move?    

ELECTRICITY MAY BE RATIONED IN BRITIAN IN 2015

Regulators have warned Britons that the country may begin to ration power supply by year 2015 if the current amount of electricity generated is anything to go by.They said the country may not be producing
enough energy to keep the lights on by 2015.This will take Britain back to the seventies-style rationing to prevent total blackout.Speculations are that offices and factories could be ‘bribed’ to close for up to four hours a day during the winter to prevent households losing power.Energy regulator Ofgem said the country faced an ‘unprecedented challenge’ as coal-fired plants are closed by European Union diktats on the environment and in addition, nuclear power stations presently account for just 18% of Britain's electricity as against the 26% it produced when Labour was elected in 1997.Yesterday Danny Alexander, Chief Secretary to the Treasury, promised £10billion for a new plant at Hinkley Point in Somerset that could power five million homes.

Obama's visit to "Door Of No Return" where slaves were shipped away never to see home again























Pictures from Dailymail......President Barrack Obama and family,today visited the Goree Island's "Door of no return" in the outskirts of Senegal after expressing his disappointment to his host over the country's law that criminalizes homosexuality. But president Macky Sall is quick to reiterate that the country is an Islamic state and is not ripe for that yet.

Goree Island is only one of the ports used to transport slaves in the 18th and 19th centuries.
The Maison des Esclaves was built between 1780 and 1784 but now it is used as a tourist destination and a museum that tells the horrors that the African slaves faced.

ARE DOGS MAN'S BEST FRIEND OR JUST ANOTHER FRESH MEAT?

The popular saying that one man's food is another man's poison may be wrong afterall. Looks like one man's adorable pet, is another man's mouth watering meal. Or howelse can one describe what is going on in Calabar, a town in Nigeria where people queue up to buy fresh dog meat?
I am not a fan of dog meat, but sincerely i ask you, what makes it wrong? What's the difference between someone who eats dog meat and another who eats goat meat, beef or chicken wings? 

In Calabar, just like Tesco, dog meat is properly packaged and delivered refrigerated for your eating pleasure. All you need do is buy one get one free for a friend/neighbour and enjoy yourself to a delicacy. I hear you cant beat the taste. It is also less expensive than most of its competitors (Cow, horse, snakes etc) so it makes it affordable.

WOULDN'T YOU LOVE A "MINI-YOU"?

Customers have a 15 minutes appointment at the My3DTwin studio in Leydon Street, Shoreditch, where 50 cameras capture the subject from every angle.
These project is the first of its kind in the UK and models cost between £84 and £192.

CHOCOLATE CITY WAR ZONE ICE PRINCE VS BRYMO


















Trouble seems to be brewing in chocolate city between two of its greatest artists. The music industry both locally and internationally has gotten so used to these things that artists can hardly use it to make 6 digit figures anymore unlike the days of Pac and Biggie. This may not be the case however, with Ice prince and Brymo but  both icons have been suggestive in their statements lately. In the past the industry has witnessed the likes of ruggedman and Idris Abdulkarim, Jay z and Nas,Kelly Handsome and MI lyrically beefing each other on the mic. Some have been able to do it the Pac and biggie way while others chicken out and resort to using social media. Either way beef is beef.

SIMON COWELL SET FOR AFGHANISTAN GOT TALENT


What is Simon thinking taking "got talent" to Afghanistan? Oh! Yea Simon, they’ve got talent alright…they’ll shoot you-an American’s reaction to the news.Imagine Simon telling a taliban his act was the worst he has ever seen in life.......Fill in the blanks.
Is Simon Cowell treading on dangerous ground by taking his show to Afghanistan?
Auditions are due to take place in the coming months, with the show launching in autumn.
Afghan stars are already being sought for the judging panel along with a celebrity host.
A source told the Sun: “Simon has always believed Got Talent can work anywhere, because — no matter where you are — people have amazing talents.
“There may be a war raging in Afghanistan — but people are still living their lives and they enjoy watching TV just like anyone else.”
The show would be for all-comers and could include our forces on the front line. British troops in the warfront will be allowed to enter- assuming they can get permission.
Afghanistan would be the 58th country to take the hit show — with others including Brazil, Ukraine, South Korea and Kazakhstan already signed up.

At the nick of time, two Indians saved from executioner's blade 48hrs to death time

Two Indian nationals, Suresh Shanmugasundaram and Kalidas Chellaiyan got a reprieve after paying blood money to relatives of their alleged murder victim just 48 hours before they
were to go under the executioner's blade in Kuwait last week. The duo had been arrested along with Srilankan woman in 2008 for the murder of another Lankan woman
 The Indian Embassy initially provided legal assistance by engaging a local lawyer to defend them in the Court. However, despite their "best efforts", both Shanmugasundaram and Chellaiyan were convicted by the Court of First Instance on March 3, 2009. The court awarded death sentence to them.Subsequently, they appealed against this verdict in the Court of Appeal which was also turned down on April 24, 2009.Sources said that in spite of the relatives of both Indians reaching an agreement to pay blood money, it was reliably learnt on April 14 that they were to be executed on the 18th.
"It was at this stage the Indian Mission in Kuwait redoubled its efforts and sought the intervention of the minister of justice, the minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs and the minister of Amiri Diwan.
"These strenuous efforts seem to have resulted in suspension of the execution sentence on June 16, just 48 hours prior to the execution," sources said.

The Indian mission is now talking to the local authorities for the commuting of their sentence to a lower degree. Both the Indian nationals are currently lodged at the central prison in Kuwait.

10 Things You Need to Know If You're Sexually Harassed at Work

You're not alone if you are confused about workplace sexual harassment. You may suspect you're being sexually harassed but aren't sure what to do. Or maybe you're being harassed because of your gender and don't realize what you're experiencing is illegal sexual harassment.
Here are ten things you need to know about sexual harassment at work:
1. Don't quit.
Many employees quit as soon as the first incident of sexual harassment occurs. They're too embarrassed or scared to go back. That's perfectly understandable, but if you quit, you might be giving up your sexual harassment claims. The Supreme Court says that, if your employer has a published sexual harassment policy, you must report the harassment under that policy and give the employer the opportunity to fix the situation. If you don't, you'll probably lose your sexual harassment lawsuit.

How to: Deal with awkward situations @ work

I found this quite intriguing and thought to share.
Whether you’re trying extra hard to impress on your first day in a new job or you’re practically part of the furniture, awkward situations at work happen to us all.
And, like many embarrassing social situations, how you react to them will often determine how others see you and, indeed, how you see yourself.

If you’re particularly prone to these uncomfortable instances, relax here are a few of the most common awkward situations that may arise in the workplace, and how you should deal with them:
1. You are overwhelmed by a co-worker’s scent (natural, or otherwise)
Fragrance is subjective, but if you’re finding it particularly difficult to work along someone’s overwhelming scent, it’s best to get it out in the open.
If you’re close to your fragrantly-challenged co-worker, try approaching them directly (and discreetly) to tell them the truth. It won’t be easy, but we can guarantee they’ll thank you (in the long run, at least). If you’re not so close, try finding a mutual acquaintance and explain the situation. They will then be able to pass on the information and hearing it from a friend should help to soften the blow.
Do say: I’m so sorry, but I think I may have an allergy to someone’s perfume. I’m so sensitive!
Don’t say: Can you please open a window? Your choice of fragrance is making my eyes water.

MISS HEPHZIBAH-AN ORATOR IS BORN
























After listening to her addressing a mammoth crowd on the 20th of May in Abuja, one member of the audience sent me an email saying” Rivera, if this great lady is not on your next publication for her art you may have lost a loyal follower,is your job not to Bring them to the fore”? Big threat!…so we set out in search of Hephzibah.
Loyals, I tell you confidently this is another Barrack Obama in the making.

First she looked Young, flawless and charming. Miss Olawunmi Rahma Olaniyan or better still Hephzibah(Pictured) embodies the fresh optimism to hand down the art of oratory to the unborn generation.
Cicero,46 BC once said "He in fact is eloquent who can discuss commonplace matters simply, lofty subjects impressively, and topics raging between in a tempered style."

After 30 mins with Miss Rahma, Cicero's words came true. I felt that a new era and a “new frontier” are being ushered in. I dare to say this lady has the power, by means of oratory, to get a hold on assemblies of men, win their good will, direct their inclinations wherever she wishes, or divert them from whatever she wishes. Lets not be too formal, the United states president Obama can get you to do just about anything at the opening of his mouth.

70 new roads approved for construction in Lagos State-Fashola

LAGOS — Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State, yesterday, said 70 new roads had been approved and awarded for construction and rehabilitation in the state, even as the Nigeria Bar Association, NBA, deplored the poor state of the Federal High Court in Lagos Island, saying “it is in its old self.”
Fashola who spoke during a courtesy call on him by the NBA, Lagos Branch and Ikeja, led by Mr. Monday Ubani and Mr. Taiwo Taiwo, said the contract had increased the number of awarded road contracts since the commencement of the second term of his administration to 230.
According to him: “We set ourselves the target in the second term to complete about 450 roads. Last year, we awarded about 160 roads. This year, we have awarded about 70 roads. This signifies our intention this year that we are more concerned about road construction.
“We have already completed about half of the roads we set out to achieve. But again, we can only award that much if we were able to complete much. That was why this year’s project was based on completing the roads in the state. The decision making for which road to deal with first, is based on the road that carries the most traffic.
“The need continuously outstrips the source and so also they outstrip the capacity. And what we have done this year was to identify the roads that needed urgent repair. And these are continuous engagement and undertaking from the state government. They will never finish in the tenure or life of any government.
