August 2016


The world’s shortest couple – who both measure less then three feet tall – have proved that size doesn’t matter when it comes to love :

Paulo Gabriel da Silva Barros and Katyucia Hoshino, from Brazil, both have forms of dwarfism and stand at 34.8in and 35.2in respectively.
The pair, who hope to enter the Guinness Book of World Records, said they met on a social media website ten years ago and started chatting on MSN Messenger.



Paulo, 30, who has a rare genetic condition called diastrophic dysplasia dwarfism, said it was love at first sight for him.

‘I FOUND HER VERY BEAUTIFUL FROM THE FIRST MOMENT I SAW HER,’ HE SAID

But the attraction wasn’t mutual. Katyucia, 26, who has achondroplasia dwarfism, which affects bone growth, initially blocked him on the instant messaging site.

SHE SAID: ‘THE FIRST TIME I STARTED TALKING TO PAULO, HE WAS REALLY ANNOYING. HE HAD CHEAP-PICK UP LINES.’

Paulo, who works as a legal secretary, said:

‘SHE THOUGHT I WAS TRYING TO FLIRT BUT I WAS JUST BEING NICE. ACCORDING TO HER I WAS A REALLY BORING GUY.’



That would have been the end of the matter, if Katyucia hadn’t suddenly decided to unblock him 18 months later.

Katyucia, who now owns her own beauty salon that has been specially adapted for her size, said:

‘ONE DAY SOMETHING HAPPENED IN MY HEAD AND I WENT AND UNBLOCKED HIM. BY THEN HE WAS ALREADY MORE RELATABLE.’

The Kano State Police Command has suspended a Kano State empowerment programme and Kwanjwasiyya widow and divorcee mass wedding schedule to hold today August 20.

Police spokesman in Kano, Magaji Majia, told Channels Television that in view of the sour relationship between Kwankwaso-led APC faction and supporters of Governor Ganduje, the two events could not be allowed to hold on the same day and in the same venue almost the same time.

“The two factions are already paying a democratic lip service to each other, therefore the Police Commissioner Rabi’u Yusuf directed that the two events be suspended indefinitely”.

Vice President Yemi Osibajo is scheduled to attend the suspended Kano Government Youth Empowerment Programme while the former Governor Rabi’u Kwankwaso was to attend the Kwanjwasiyya mass wedding.

When contacted, the State Commissioner of Information, Muhammad Garba, said Ganduje administration had no problem with any Union coming to assist the Government but claimed that they were not aware about the Kwanjwasiyya mass wedding programme.

“I’m surprised to hear that the Commissioner of Police has suspended our programme because no one told us that Kwanjwasiyya foundation will be holding a mass wedding at the same day and at the same venue – Sani Abacha Stadium – but since the police have decided to stop us, we have no choice but to obey the law,” he told Channels Television.

However, all attempt to speak with the leadership of the Kwanjwasiyya Foundation on the recent development was not successful but sources close to Kwanjwasiyya told Channels Television that their leadership would release a statement of reaction in due course.

With 2019 around the corner, political situations in the politically advanced Kano State are already becoming more tense.

Nollywood actor Bob Manuel in an interview with Punch has said he would have high blood pressure if he calculates the amount he spends on powering his generator monthly. The Interview;

Do you also use generator like most Nigerians do?

Of course, I do, even more than most Nigerians. We have no choice due to poor power supply in the country. I rely mostly on generator for my power needs.

For how many hours in a day do you enjoy government power supply in your area?

I cannot estimate that. Sometimes there is electricity today, tomorrow there is none. It’s an on-and-off situation. Sometimes, there will be no power for weeks and I often forget there’s anything called government power supply. It’s just like what every other Nigerian experiences.

How much do you spend on powering your generators per month?

I have stopped calculating the amount. It is painful. You can just imagine if someone is spending just N1,000 per day to run a generator, in a month, you would have spent N30,000. Many Nigerians spend more than that per month. Personally, if I calculate what I spend on powering my generators, I will develop high blood pressure. I don’t bother again.

What advice would you give Nigerians?

Take things in order of priority. Draw a scale of preference. Then, to give a tip on saving fuel, when you turn on your generator, draw the fuel pump valve to half way. I have not really experimented it before, but I think it gives some psychological feeling that you are saving some fuel. Let other Nigerians try it and give me feedback.

Burna boy (Instagram)

Considering the fact that Damin ogulu aka BurnBoy or Burna Ranking as called by fans is one of the best and relevant act in the Nigerian music industry. we want to believe this might just be another publicity stunt for Burna to remain relevant in the industry. The ragga, afropop act went on to his twitter to quitting music by 1st of October.  

Anyway, GL will be watching to see and be ready to inform our wonderful readers :) 

His Twitter post below;






Micheal Ajereh Collins, Nigerian music producer and artiste better known as Don Jazzy, has said that foreign artistes are scared to make music with him.
He said this while speaking in a recent interview conducted by Boiler room in collaboration with British Council.
Most of these American artistes would call you, they believe you have something that they like, so they call you to come and try something out”, Don Jazzy said.
“A bunch of people that I have tried to work with or have tried to work with me chicken out at the end of the day because they aren’t really ready for the music change; they want me to tweak it till it gets back to their sound.
“I can give you your sound, but then, you called me for something and then I try to give to my sound and I want you to do your thing on top of it which would give the sound a wider recognition but they say they aren’t ready for this switch drastically. I think they are still scared.” he said.
The 33-year-old Mavin boss said he started paying more attention to music during the Kennis Music era.
“I would say I started listening more during the Kennis music time because after Storm records, then it was a time for Kennis music and they came with Tuface, Remedies and all.
“At that point, I was still in secondary school and I was like “Yo! They were putting a lot of swags into this my work”. So I started taking note of the music and it started shaping me into what I would like to do but then, there was no way for me to do it.”
Don Jazzy also said that Nigerian music is designed to make people happy during their struggles.
“Everyone is struggling; we all have a problem in the country but there are sometimes when we need that peace of mind.
“While some people are consciously trying to make you aware of what is going on in the struggle, there should be other people that would keep you happy when you are going through the struggles and that is where we come in.”

It looks like all of those rumors about Eminem being on the verge of going at Drake on wax were, to put it mildly, a little off base. Last night, Drizzy brought Eminem onstage during the Canadian’s show in Detroit. The entrance, with Eminem coming up from underneath the stage, was very dramatic.


                                 
Drake paid tribute to the hometown hero detroit, bowing down to Eminem and calling him “the greatest rapper ever to get on the microphone.” Eminem performed “Forever” with Drake.

Everton have confirmed the signing of Yannick Bolasie from Crystal Palace on a five-year contract.
The winger has moved for an undisclosed fee.

It is thought an initial £22.5m is being paid with another £2.5m in add-ons and a further £3m possible further down the line.

Bolasie told Everton's official website: "I'm looking forward to putting on the Everton shirt. This is a big club and I know all about it from having played against them over the years.

"For me, it was a no-brainer to come here. But now that I've come to Everton, the job is not done. I've got to work hard and feel my way in. I'm ready and up for the challenge.

"It's not about the money for me. It's about looking at the ambition of the club and where they are trying to get to. I just like to play football.

"It's going to be really interesting to learn from someone like Ronald Koeman, who was obviously a top centre-back as a player and he played with some of the best players in the world.

"The club has made good signings, players like Ashley Williams who I know well.

"I know that I've joined a club that not only has lots of quality players but one that produces lots of quality players, like Ross Barkley.

"This season is going to be very interesting and I'm looking forward to being part of it here at Everton."

Bolasie made his last appearance for Palace as a substitute in their 1-0 home defeat to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday before travelling north for a medical on Sunday.

Everton manager Koeman said: "Yannick is a player who has been a long time on my radar because he's the type of winger I like - fast, strong and he can play different positions in the forward line.

"He's a really good signing for the club. At 27, he's a good age and he has experience in the Premier League.

"He will give strength to the team and I'm very pleased to have Yannick as part of what we are trying to build here at Everton."

The Nigeria music industry is about to experience another rofofo fight brewing between the former Triple MG hit maker, Iyanya & Ivorian music legend Awilo Longomba. According to a source close to both musicians, the problem started early last week when a new single from Iyanya featuring Awilo got leaked online by a music blogger. In less than 24 hours of leaking the dance tune, it went viral and that didn’t go down well with the Makossa music legend, Awilo reacting through his spoke person said its very unprofessional to release a song that is not well mixed and mastered to the general public.

In reaction to the allegation Iyanya denied having knowledge of the song going online, that it came as a surprise to him and his management.

But he has since send an apology to Awilo and both acts are back in business now working together towards shooting a befitting video for the song. Hopefully this new sound will shot him back to reckoning in the music business.

Wonder they say shall never end! Okay, maybe the case of Las Vegas is different since there is a saying that "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas". LOL

“I now pronounce you husband and smart phone.”

Those are the words Michael Kelly stated during the ceremony at the Little Vegas Chapel May 20.

According to KTNV, Aaron Chervenak drove from Los Angeles to marry the love of his life; his smart phone.

While it may not be true love exactly, Kelly says Chervenak did it to send a message to society.

“People are so connected to their phones and they live with them all the time,” said Kelly. “They’re with them 24 hours a day. They go to sleep with their cell phone. They wake up with their cell phone, sometimes it’s the first thing that they check.”

The marriage isn’t legally recognized by the State of Nevada, but the Little Vegas Chapel won’t deny any commitment ceremony.

“We don’t really have many people that marry inanimate objects.”

Luckily, the union, unlike a cellphone provider's contract, is nonbinding, making it easy for Chervenak to upgrade to a newer model soon. LOL
