I am gay; Panji Anoff declares


<b></b>


Although homosexuality is illegal in Ghana, one of the country's renowned music producers and CEO of Pidgin Music, Panji Anoff has publicly declared he is gay.

The producer made the startling declaration on his Facebook page to the dismay of his numerous fans.

He declared that: 'I wish to announce today that I am gay, so that all the people who don't want a gay friend on facebook, can unfriend me now. I will miss you all, but I think it will make my facebook world a better place'.

Panji subsequently granted an interview to Hitz FM in which he said 'I wrote that because I realise that as I was reading my facebook page and I was coming up against a lot prejudice and I believe in freedom and I believe that a crime without a victim is not a crime.'

'If I am here and I love my boyfriend I don't see why it is a crime against any human being because who is the victim? This is something that two people have agreed on so who is the victim in this case? So I don't see how it is a crime or I don't see how I have made a wrong statement,' he added.

Asked if he was gay, Panji replied that: 'Yes, that is the statement I made.'

Panji Anoff is a pioneer of pidgin music producing and promotion in Ghana and he has managed Wanlov the Kubolor and M3nsa (FOKN Bois), and currently King Ayisoba.

He is also an artistic director, producer, technical producer for television, commercials, and events.

Europe Destroyed African Culture - The Alaafin of Oyo




The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III, has berated Europeans for ‘deliberately setting out to destroy other cultures’ with their hegemonic one. The monarch said the Europeans super-imposed their own cultures and values on subject peoples, in order to perpetuate the relationship of inequality and inequity, so as to achieve their purpose.

He said this in his speech, delivered yesterday at the first Brazil- Nigeria International Seminar to Preserve Shared Cultural Heritage, held at Salvador/Bahia, Brazil.

The monarch stated that the religious foundation of the Yoruba tradition and culture “is presently under serious threats posed by guest faiths in Africa, the parlous socioeconomic conditions in Africa and a creation of neo-liberal economic policies, which have continued to impoverish many African states.”

His words: “The guest faiths are, therefore, feeding on this to preach the gospel of individual prosperity and well-being on earth.

“They have abandoned the earlier gospel of earthly denials in order to enjoy heaven. By their new approach, they are misleading scores and scores of Africans, encouraging them to disrespect, dishonour and abandon anything African, with our religious beliefs being demonised and discarded,” he noted.

The Alaafin added: “Some misguided Africans now abandon their family names in preference to names without bearing to their backgrounds.

“This danger is imminent and it is already destroying the African personality and confidence.” While insisting that European colonisation of Africa was indeed a cultural project, Oba Adeyemi said, “It is now commonplace in Africa for practitioners of the African religion to be vilified, persecuted and blamed for the underdevelopment of their societies.”

To reverse the trend, the Alaafin appealed to the Brazilian government to support efforts to preserve the cultural monuments and the tangible heritage by supporting a World Heritage nomination to UNESCO and the listing of Oyo town as an endangered heritage site.

According to the monarch, the support could also come through conduct of academic researches to study and map all assets of Oyo’s cultural heritage, as well as promotion and support of the use of new technologies for heritage management and education, in addition to encouraging and facilitating Brazilians to visit and study the ancient traditions of Oyo.

Oba Adeyemi, in the paper entitled: ‘Perpetuating Sango Oyo Heritage Continuity in Oyo and the Diaspora’ he delivered, said: “Our traditional religion is part of our heritage, which needs to be preserved and recognised.”

While reiterating his position as the defender of the African cultural heritage, not only on the continent, but across the globe, he said the frontal attack on Yoruba religious, socio-cultural and spiritual traditions must be resisted and confronted with a ‘superior spiritual force’.

Police arrest 2 Nigerian money-laundering suspects, seize 1.3 million euros


euro, money, eurozone

The Lithuanian Financial Crime Investigation Service seized 1.8 million US dollars (EUR 1.3 million) from a Nigerian company and arrested two Nigerian citizens on money laundering charges.

The service said the two Nigerian citizens purchased an inactive company registered in Lithuania in 2012. Earlier this year, a Hong Kong-registered off-shore company transferred 1.8 million US dollars to the front company’s account in an unnamed Lithuanian bank. The suspects tried to withdraw 100,000 US dollars in cash and transfer the rest to companies registered in Spain.

Lithuanian authorities had suspicions about the company’s registration address in a garage. The bank account was also opened while the company declared losses and has debts to the budget.

To collect possible evidence, the Financial Crime Investigation Service on Wednesday detained both Nigerians and searched their homes. The searches revealed documents, computers and computer media, as well as data crucial to the investigation.

Charges of money laundering, large-scale fraud, and document forgery have been filed against the Nigerian citizens. Prosecutors have asked for a court sanction to arrest the detainees.

MUGABE ORDERS WHITE FARMERS OFF OF LAND


Robert Mugabe


On Wednesday, Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe (pictured) told White farmers that they must get off the land, because his nation is not a place for White landowners, according to AllAfrica.

Speaking in Mashonaland West at the A1 Model Settlement Tenure Permit, President Mugabe spoke of the reported few hundreds of White farmers who still own land in Zimbabwe.

“There are White farmers who are still on the land and have the protection of some cabinet ministers and politicians as well as traditional leaders.



“I have been given a list of 35 White farmers in Mashonaland West alone and in just a few districts that have been audited. We say no to Whites owning our land and they should go.”

President Mugabe then went on to clarify what Whites could actually own in his homeland, “They can own companies and apartments in our towns and cities but not the soil. It is ours and that message should ring loud and clear in Britain and the United States.”

Clearly just warming up, President Mugabe then turned his sights on Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, calling him a “boy from the streets.”

“We had an agreement with the Margaret Thatcher government and when Tony Blair came he reneged on that agreement. I pleaded with him to review his decision but he was a boy from the street with no experience so he stuck to his guns,” said the veteran leader.

“I was not amused and told him to keep his England and we would keep our Zimbabwe. We will not pay for our land and we will not ask our people to pay for it because they never paid for it in the first place.

“They were selling to each other among themselves, and we will not recognise any of that nonsense. They were living like kings and queens on our land and we chucked them out. Now we want all of it.”

Whites came from Europe and South Africa in the 1890s. The Land Apportionment Act of 1930 divided the lands by tribes: Whites, Shona, and Ndebele. And while traditionally, Africans shared the lands communally, the new laws that favored Whites made it nearly impossible for Africans to get financing, equipment, and training to farm large plots of land.

But Whites, who obviously already had a mastery of Western land ideology,  understood title deeds to land and were consequently able to buy and develop large areas of land for commercial farming businesses.

Their Western and White advantage led to other advantages, such as prime land in the fertile upland region, and not surprisingly, the White population flourished.

Meanwhile, Africans were regulated to low rainfall areas, forcing 99 percent of the population on to 25 percent of the land.

By 1979, Whites consisted of only 5 percent of the population, with only 4,500 farmers, but owned 70 percent of the fertile land.

Mugabe came to power on the heels of the Lancaster House Agreement in 1980, which stated that Mugabe couldn’t make any land reform changes for 10 years.

After decades of stops and starts in attempting to redistribute land back to Africans, by 2000, Zimbabwe government instituted the Fast-Track Land Reform Program, violently forcing mostly White farmers off their lands without compensation — earlier iterations of land reform ensured that Whites would be compensated for the lands they occupied.

The government reportedly seized 110,000 square kilometers of land and millions of Black farmers were said to have become unemployed.

By 2005, the Parliament agreed to nationalizing all farmland, silencing farmers who wanted to contest the land grab in court.

Today, the benefits of redistributing land among Africans cannot be comprehensively considered for two prime reasons: many of the beneficiaries of land that was formerly “owned” by Whites have reportedly had little experience in managing commercial farmland properly; this fact has supposedly caused crop production to plummet in the country. In addition, the United States froze the nation’s credit once the Fast Track Land Reform was passed, almost immediately cutting Zimbabwe’s trade surplus deficit of $322 million in 2001 to a deficit of $18 million by 2002.

Israel is not my birthright


I was raised to think the country was ours by divine right. But this horror has challenged even my deepest beliefs.

Israel is not my birthright


I’m writing this in my new baby niece’s room. I am here in Florida visiting my family because of this niece, this tiny pudgy innocent baby. We are Jewish, and it’s time for my niece to receive her Hebrew name in a sweet little ceremony at our longtime synagogue.

Last night I sat at the synagogue next to my 19-year-old daughter. I felt a swell of joy as the services began; I’d been away too long. I’d loved services as a child and teenager.

And then we hit the first mention of Israel as the Promised Land, and I burst into tears.

On the way to services, I’d caught up on Twitter a bit. I’d read about the Israeli missiles still falling on Palestine. I’d read about the outright murder of Palestinian children.

And I sat there and listened to the rabbi call Israel our Promised Land, and it broke something in me.

I am an American Jew of a certain age (40), and what that means is that I was raised to believe that Israel was ours by divine right.

It sounds ridiculous when you say it aloud. Especially because, like many of my generation of Jews, I’m not particularly religious. Many Jews my age slid into paganism, a sort of ambivalent agnosticism, or outright atheism; we are cultural Jews rather than religious Jews. And yet when I first spoke about the conflict between Israel and Palestine some years ago, I found that falling out of my mouth – that God promised us Israel. It’s ours because God said so.

My daughter, trying to comfort me after the services, said, “Maybe it is the Promised Land, just not right now.”

My daughter is an atheist. And the narrative got her, too.

The history we are taught in our Sunday school is that we were there first, and that therefore the Palestinians are occupying our land. How long ago were we there, though? And who, exactly, is we? I find myself using that we – “We need to stop bombing Palestine,” “we need to give land back,” but I am not Israeli. I have never been to Israel. This is how deep it runs, this idea of possession.

American Jewish teenagers get a free trip to Israel, paid for by a Jewish foundation. These are called Birthright trips.

My daughter went to Israel two years ago. Not on a Birthright trip, the very name of which raises the hairs on the back of my neck, that entitlement to land that others have lived on for generations. She went with my parents, who have gone many times before. She visited various landmarks; she took lots of pictures.

Man checks into hospital for bleeding, stomach pain and finds out he’s on his period

A 44-year-old man in China’s Zhejiang province checked into Yongkang hospital with stomach pains and blood in his urine only to find out that he is intersex and had begun to menstruate.

According to Yahoo! Taiwan, the man, named Chen, found out after a CAT scan that he has a complete set of female reproductive organs. Genetic tests revealed that he also had XX sex chromosomes rather than XY, meaning that he is genetically female.

The International Business Times reported that Chen, upon closer inspection, was lacking secondary sex characteristics like an Adam’s apple, and that his genitals were neither male nor female, but “indeterminate.”

“He had short hair and was dressed in man’s clothes. We did not realize he was a female at first,” a Dr. Zhou told the Global Times.

Chen, who arrived at the hospital with his wife of 10 years, was diagnosed with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), a set of genetic mutations that causes overproduction of the male sex hormone androgen and an inability to produce certain other hormones.

Baby girls born with CAH can have genital configurations that more closely resemble those of a male baby. Chen lived with the condition undiagnosed for his whole life. Over time the hormone imbalance contributed to a tumor on Chen’s adrenal glands, which doctors removed.

NC pastor kills self in front of deputies as they try to arrest him on child sex charges

Pistol on black leather Bible via Shutterstock

A North Carolina pastor shot himself to death over the weekend as deputies were trying to arrest him on child sex charges.

According to WCOC-TV, Michael Mullis, the former pastor of Near Calvary Baptist Church in Concord, knew that he was being investigated for indecent liberties with a child before Rowan County deputies showed up on Saturday to serve warrants on him.

The sheriff’s office said that when deputies arrived to arrest him, he went to the bathroom to put on his shoes, and shot himself with a pistol.

“I’m sure he knew because our investigators had talked to him about this incident,” Concord Police spokesperson Maj. Gary Hatley told WSOC. “Or attempted to talk to him anyway — he knows we were investigating.”

A timeline provided by the victim indicated that Mullis was still serving as pastor at Near Calvary Baptist during the years of sexual abuse. The abuse allegedly ended in 2004, and Mullis resigned from the church in 2011 after 20 years as pastor.

Near Calvary Baptist Church has since changed its name.

“They knew each other and had a relationship I guess, but there’s no indication of any other victims” Hatley said, adding that the victim had been surprised by the pastor’s death.

Mullis’ wife was also reportedly at home at the time of the shooting. Investigators said that the case was now considered closed.

We don't want black or gay players! Zenit fans in shocking demand to club (in Russia - hosts of 2018 World Cup)

A group of fans of Russian side Zenit St Petersburg are calling for non-white and gay players to be excluded from their team.

This is another sign of the racism which plaguing the country that will host the World Cup in 2018.

Landscrona, the largest Zenit supporters' club, released a manifesto on Monday demanding the club field an all-white, heterosexual team.

It added that 'dark-skinned players are all but forced down Zenit's throat now, which only brings out a negative reaction' and said gay players were 'unworthy of our great city.'


Insult: Hulk (right) is a non-white player who plays for the Russian side


The club quickly sought to distance itself from the fans. Without directly referring to their manifesto, Zenit's Italian head coach, Luciano Spalletti, said on the club's website that 'tolerance for me is most of all the ability to understand and accept differences.'

'Furthermore, being tolerant means that you fight against any kind of stupidity,' he added.

The club, which is owned by state-controlled natural gas giant Gazprom, also told the R-Sport news agency it picked players on ability alone, insisting that 'the team's policy is aimed at development and integration into the world soccer community, and holds no archaic views.'

Zenit was the only top-flight Russian team without a black player until this summer, when it acquired Brazilian striker Hulk and Belgian midfielder Axel Witsel for 80 million euros.

French midfielder Yann M'Vila declined a move to the club in August after receiving death threats.

'I can personally assure you that I will do everything I can to help those who seek to explain to people what tolerance is, and the need to respect other cultures and traditions,' Spalletti said.

'I think that Zenit has proven through its work that the club understands what tolerance is, and what it means to have tolerant behavior. The team has gathered players from different countries and ethnic groups who work together to achieve a common goal, and work well.'

Meet The Woman Who Cuddles With Strangers For $60 An Hour

cuddler   cuddle

"Let's hold hands and cuddle up on the couch, or listen to some soft music while we curl up in your bed — I am happy to be the big spoon or the little spoon."
This is one of the first things you'll read when you visit Samantha Hess' website, Cuddle Up To Me.

At the age of 30, Hess is a professional cuddler. For $60 an hour, she'll intimately snuggle with strangers of all types, and bring them one-on-one cuddle time without the complications of a relationship.

The idea came to her in 2012, when she read an article about a guy with a "Free Hugs" sign at a local Saturday market. Another man stood next to him with a "Deluxe hugs, $2" sign, and ended up getting more hugs than the first guy.

"That was my lightbulb moment," Hess says. "I was at a place in my life, out of a 13-year relationship, where I needed a service that didn't exist. I was struggling and not ready for another relationship but still had an inherent need to be accepted and loved."

Hess didn't know where to turn. She wanted physical comfort that was safe and socially acceptable to reach out to.

So in May 2013, she started Cuddle Up To Me. A month later, a local newspaper featured her business in its annual "Best of Portland" issue, which helped the company gain traction. From there, the story spread to more than 40 TV stations across the country, accumulating over 17 million views — and her business took off.

Currently, professional cuddling is her only job, and Hess says she is making far more money from this business than she did in her previous jobs as a customer service representative or personal trainer.

"It's definitely enough to make a living just doing this job, and I never need to take more than five sessions a day," she says. By working six days a week, Hess can make up to $7,200 in a month.

About 90% of her clients are men between the ages of 20 and 75, and she says many suffer from severe traumatic diseases or disabilities that prevent them from having frequent human contact.

"I call my service a 'massage for the mind,'" Hess says. "It's meant to rejuvenate you and make you feel that openness and happiness in your brain by resetting your system from top to bottom."

Within 24 hours of her first session with a client, Hess usually gets a phone call or email about how much it meant to them. "I can't tell you how many times I've had to turn down tips, because people are so excited about it," Hess says.

Don't Get Too Excited About The 'HIV-Killing' Condom Yet



CONDOM


A groundbreaking new condom that uses an antiviral gel as added protection against HIV, herpes and HPV may soon hit the shelves in Australia. But some experts are wary of the effectiveness of VivaGel, the lube that makes the condom so potent against viral sexually transmitted infections.

The VivaGel condom, made by pharmaceutical company Starpharma, is the only condom of its kind to incorporate the antiviral compound, asodrimer sodium, in its lubricant. Lab tests show that it can "inactivate" up to 99.9 percent of HIV, herpes (HSV) and HPV, according to the company's press release.

But Dr. Anna-Barbara Moscicki, a pediatrics professor at University of California, San Francisco and an HPV expert, advises caution. She researched VivaGel as an intravaginal cream for women who wanted to protect themselves from viruses without using a condom, and found that it caused mild irritation and low-grade inflammation in study participants after two weeks of twice-daily use.

That's more serious than it sounds: Inflammation is the body's response to an irritant or pathogen. When a part of the body is irritated, the body sends protective white blood cells like neutrophils and lymphocytes to the site of the injury to begin healing it.

But it's those very cells, explained Moscicki, that the HIV virus uses to replicate itself and spread throughout the body. If the lubricant irritates a vaginal wall to the point of inflammation, the body could send white blood cells straight to the site where they are most likely to come into contact with the HIV virus.

Inflammation also breaks the skin barrier down, making it easier for HPV to access the basal skin cell layer and infect a person, said Moscicki.

Based on her 2011 study, as well as another one with similar results, Moscicki hopes that Starpharma has worked out the kinks that caused inflammation in study participants.

Surgeons discover 5-inch sex toy in woman’s vagina that had been there for 10 YEARS

A Scottish woman walked around with a five-inch sex toy inside her for 10 years without realising, doctors have reported.

The 38-year-old woman arrived at hospital complaining of severe weight loss, shaking and lethargy.

She had also experienced mild incontinence for 'a few weeks'.

On further examination, doctors were shocked to discover a strange foreign body protruding into her bladder from her vagina.

The 38-year-old woman admitted she was under the influence of alcohol when she used the toy (circled) and claimed she couldn't remember removing it or not

Surgical removal of the item at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary revealed it to be a five inch (11cm)-long sex toy.

Medical staff were even more taken back when the woman revealed she had used the sex toy with her partner ten years ago.

She also admitted she was under the influence of alcohol at the time - and claimed she couldn't remember removing it or not.

The woman had a normal IQ, no signs of depression or psychosis and had not been subject to any abuse, according to the case report.

But the sex toy had caused her potentially life-threatening damage.

The woman was suffering from a rare 'vesicovaginal fistula' – an abnormal tract which allows urine to flow into the vagina.

She also had an obstructive uropathy, where a blockage in the bladder causes urine to back up into the kidneys.

After removing the sex toy, doctors managed to repair the damage and the woman was later discharged.

One doctor at the hospital, who was not willing to comment on the patient's specific case, confirmed it was highly unusual for such a large foreign object to go unnoticed in the majority of instances - by patients or their partners.

This is because the vagina is full of nerve endings and is extremely sensitive, he says.

The patient’s case - reported in The Journal of Sexual Medicine - is the first time a sex toy has been left inside a woman for as long as a decade.

Ted Nugent: Native Americans Are ‘Unclean Vermin’ Who Don’t ‘Qualify As People’

Ted Nugent


In response to Idaho Native Americans canceling one of his performances, Ted Nugent displayed the behavior that caused the tribe to do so in the first place.

Nugent had been scheduled to perform a concert at Couer D’Alene Casino in Worley, Idaho on Aug. 4, but it was canceled after tribal officials were made aware of the racism Nugent has spewed over the years. The conservative rocker didn’t take the news very well, of course, and went on a disgusting rant during an interview with Gannett Wisconsin Media in which he called those who canceled the concert “unclean vermin” who aren’t real people.

“I take it as a badge of honor that such unclean vermin are upset by me and my positive energy,” Nugent hatefully said. “By all indicators, I don’t think they actually qualify as people, but there has always been a lunatic fringe of hateful, rotten, dishonest people that hate happy, successful people.”

To be blunt, it sounds like Nugent is talking about himself considering the racist remarks he has made about President Obama in recent years. The Idaho Native Americans who made the decision to cancel the concert did so precisely because of how hateful, dishonest, and rotten ‘The Motor City Madman’ is. We’re talking about a man who crapped his pants to avoid serving in Vietnam, a man who married a teen girl he was the legal guardian of just so he could have sex with her, a man who has called for the execution of Democrats and the President of the United States, and a man who has made racist comment after racist comment.

Native Americans are not only people, they’re the first people and original inhabitants of North America. Their ancient culture has played a large role in shaping America, and it’s because of hateful bigoted people like Nugent that Native Americans have been nearly wiped out.

This isn’t the first time Nugent has been stopped from performing a concert. Earlier this year, a town in Texas actually paid him $16,000 to stay away from them, and it’s amazing that more towns don’t do the same thing. But if the Couer D’Alene tribe wants a real rock star to perform at their casino, I suggest asking rock legend Tom Petty. Not only will they get to see a better show, they’ll get a better human being.

Woman lets Jesus take the wheel, Jesus pulls a hit-and-run




A Indiana woman ran over a motorcyclist and slammed into a Ford pickup truck because she let Jesus take the wheel. Which is crazy because, you know, the DMV has no record of issuing him a drivers license.

According to police, Prionda Hill, 25, was driving her Pontiac Grand Prix down Jefferson Blvd in Fort Wayne when, "out of nowhere God told her that He would take it from here and she let go of the wheel and let Him take it.”

That's when her lord and savior ran down 47-year-old motorcycle enthusiast Anthony Oliveri. Well, first Jesus knocked him off his bike, then he kept going.



“When I looked at that bumper and looked at that tire, I told myself, today is the day you die,” Oliveri told the Journal Gazette.

But Jesus spared his life that day, and instead of crushing Oliveri's skull, he just ran over his midsection, breaking all of the ribs on his left side and rupturing his spleen and bruising his kidney.

Normally one to heal the wounded, Jesus broke character and fled the scene. He smashed into the back of a Ford pickup truck before running off the road into some landscaping between two fast food joints.

By the time police got there, Jesus had peaced out, leaving Hill to deal with the aftermath. She tested negative for alcohol, but despite her admission to being prescribed Vicodin for pain relief, police did not administer a complete toxicology report, nor did they test for holy spirits.

Hill is being charged with failure to stop after an accident resulting in injury or death, criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon, and two counts of criminal mischief. Jesus said he would die for her sins, but no word yet on whether he'll take the rap for them.

DID YOU KNOW KISSING CAN CAUSE HERPES

Details Category: HEALTH 25 Jul 2014 Hits: 85
   

If you think a kiss is just a kiss, you might want to think again, for the simple pleasure now comes with a health warning-it can cause herpes. The Australian Herpes Management Forum, which is to start an awareness campaign, has warned that a kiss is a major transmitter of herpes. The symbol of affection “poses risks to both adults and children”.

“No parent kissing their child or partner kissing their girlfriend wants to pass along the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV), but people should be aware this is the main method of transmission. Once you have been infected with HSV-1 or HSV-2, the virus stays in your body for life and can reactivate at any time,” the Australian media quoted AHMF’s Executive Director Tricia Berger.

“If you have a herpes sore on or near your mouth, it is likely that you’ll pass the virus along to whomever you kiss. It is also possible to transmit the virus even when there are no apparent sores or symptoms, but the risk is higher when the sores are visible,” Berger said.

HSV-1 is the variant of the virus otherwise referred to as cold sores. It is commonly acquired as a child from contact, often a kiss, with adult relatives.

Berger said the herpes risk posed by kissing would be the main theme of a new community service awareness campaign. Television and radio ads will be aired nationally from August up to National Herpes Awareness Day, in October.

Couple arrested after grandma films them having sex on the beach in front of kids


     

The man looks like he regrets his action, but not the woman...see the smirk on her face...lol. A couple have been arrested after they were filmed having sex on a crowded beach in Florida in front of children, including a 4 year old girl.

Elissa Alvarez, 20 (pictured right), straddled Jose Caballero, 39, (pictured left) on a blanket for 25 minutes in full view of other beach-goers before they calmly went for a swim

When they returned from the swim and started again, a disgusted grandma filmed their actions on her mobile phone before calling police. They were arrested & charged with lewd & lascivious behaviour.

The grandma who recorded the porno on her phone said;

"This went on for about 25 minutes. I’ve lived here since 1978 and I go to the beaches, and I’ve never seen anything like this. They laid on the beach and passed out for hours. We thought they were dead. But when they woke up, they cuddled for a while - then they started into the same thing they did before.”

Madonna University student arrested for allegedly killing own father

A 27-year-old undergraduate of Madonna University, Okija, Anambra State, Chijioke Ezebuiro, was paraded yesterday July 22nd by the Abia State Police Command for allegedly killing his 87-year-old father, Dr. Emmanuel Ezebuiro. This sad event comes barely three weeks after 21 year old Tolani Ajayi killed his 60 year old father inside the Redeemed Christian Church of God campground.

While parading Chijioke before newsmen, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Geoffrey Ogbonna said Chijioke is the chief suspect in his father's death because he was the only one around when the deceased was brutally murdered on June 30th at his home in Umuoriehi, Isingwu in Umuahia North LGA of Abia state. Continue...

According to his elder brother's statement to the police, Chijioke had often threatened to kill their father. The elder brother said he left their father and Chijioke at home to drop off his children at school only to return to find their father in the pool of his own blood. He immediately called the police after Chijioke could not explain what happened to their father. 
Police preliminary reports shows that there was no evidence of someone else gaining access into the home when the octogenarian was murdered.
During his interrogation, Chijioke claimed he was having his bath when his father was murdered.
"After taking my bath as I was going towards my room I saw people screaming in my father’s room, so I decided to go inside to know what was happening there. When I went there I saw my brother and my cousin in my father’s room and I saw my dad on top of his bed. I was shocked to see blood on his head. I was so scared I had to go down stairs to call one of my cousins. When I came back with him we were asking them what happened none of them told us anything. He told us to go down stairs the next thing was for me to see police coming to arrest me, took me to the police station, saying I am a murderer, that’s all.” he said.
He denied ever threatening his life, maintaining they had a good relationship.

Opinion: Why Beyonce Should Get Out Of Her Relationship With Jay Z… NOW


Photo: Opinion: Why Beyonce Should Get Out Of Her Relationship With Jay Z… NOW

by Kate Leaver

If you believe their fans, Beyonce and Jay Z are about to kill real love.

Rumour has it that Beyonce and Jay Z will get divorced when they finish their Mr and Mrs Carter world tour. They’re travelling with relationship counsellors, and they’ve both been seen without rings. Cheating and beating rumours have been around a long time, but this time it’s different. This time it’s louder. There’s momentum.

With so many fans chanting, “Don’t do it, Beyonce!” you may not be able to hear what I’m going to say next. It may surprise you. It might actually make you angry.

Because while millions of people want the Mr and Mrs Carter fairytale to endure, I’m yelling, “Run, Beyonce. Run! Get out, get out, get out.”

Judging by the emotional tweets of their fans, perhaps it’s just me and Solange Knowles who think Beyonce would be better off without Jay Z. The consensus out there seems to be that if Bey and Jay can’t make it, nobody can. Romance is dead, love is over, all hope is gone, etc.

But before we mourn the possible end of Bey and Jay, let’s get real about their relationship. Their public romance has been painstakingly manufactured, but not even Bey’s publicist can make rumours of infidelity, dysfunction, and aggression disappear completely.

We’re talking about one of the most powerful couples in the world. They’re friends with the Obamas, they make more than $63million a year, and they can dominate the international news cycle for six days with one well-timed elevator fight that wasn’t even directly between them.

Together, they’ve got 27 Grammys, 20 Billboard Music awards, $1billion in personal wealth, 112million social media followers, 11 houses, seven fragrances, two world tours and one very cute child.

But all of their success and the angst about them splitting is based on a very questionable idea: That Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter is a good person.

I dispute that.

Consider this.

Jay Z has spent the past decade rebranding himself, forcing the world to forget that he can be a terrible human. It’s one of the most stunning public transformations in pop culture history – the young criminal who turned himself around from rough beginnings, became a rap god, and married the undisputed queen of pop.

This isn’t just about bad boy made good. Of course people can change. But there are many who believe Jay Z hasn’t actually changed. He’s just done a very good spin job.

Don’t underestimate Beyonce’s halo effect on Jay Z’s image – being married to a strong, beautiful, wealthy feminist is an astoundingly smart business move.

Cynical? Perhaps.

Sure, Jay Z rides the subway to concerts (which is conveniently captured for social media) and chats to old ladies (ditto). When his daughter, Blue Ivy, was born, he publicly promised to stop using the word ‘bitch’ in his lyrics. And he cultivates a real good-guy image, popping by the White House to visit President Obama, being a dad, and touring with his wife.

But Jay Z’s also the guy who shot his brother with a shotgun when he was 12, dealt cocaine for years, and got three years probation for stabbing record producer Lance “Un” Rivera in 1999 with a nine inch blade. That’s only 15 years ago.

He’s the guy who punched and shoved a young female fan backstage at one of his concerts, when she asked for an autograph. He’s the guy who defiantly sang about domestic violence in his duet with Beyonce, compared himself to Ike Turner, tried to get a coke dealer out of jail to work with him, and stands by fully clothed while his wife gyrates on-stage in her underwear. And he still uses the word ‘bitch’ in his lyrics.

Despite a $63million-a-year income, it appears Jay Z rarely donates to charity or does philanthropic work of a visible kind. In an interview with Rap Radar journalist Elliot Wilson, Jay Z explained this lack of generosity: “My presence is charity. Just who I am. Just like Obama’s is. Obama provides hope. Whether he does anything, the hope that he provides for a nation, and outside of America is enough. Just being who he is.”

Oh, and there was that time he said something so vile, his sister-in-law Solange Knowles fly-kicked him in the elevator of a hotel. Whatever that was.

Look, making judgments about a marriage – whether it’s between famous strangers or friends – is not really possible. Divorce is devastating, especially when there’s a child involved. We will never truly know what goes on between Beyonce Knowles and Shawn Carter… But enough people have whispered bad things about Jay Z now (rumours we cannot publish here but have gained a certain level of credibility because independent sources have verified them), it’s possible that Beyonce would be better off without him.

Beyonce’s fans worship her in an almost cult-like way. She’s such a prominent role model, she has the genuine ability to affect the way people think and behave. If she’s in a relationship that’s affecting her negatively, she needs to get out.

Because if she can get out, so can the women who worship her.

A statement released by the representative of the National Security and Defence Council Information Centre Andriy Lysenko, has said nine Nigerian students have been kidnapped in Ukraine but negotiations are under way to free the students taken captive by rebels in the eastern city of Luhansk.

Ukrainian news agencies say the suspected militants abducted the Nigerian students on Monday and have been holding them as prisoners at an occupied government security building, close to the Russian border.

The Rebels seeking greater autonomy have been waging a bloody battle in eastern Ukraine against the government and by so doing kidnapped nine Nigerian students schooling in the country.

Relatives of the kidnapped students have also been making efforts to hold a press conference at the Nigerian Embassy in Ukraine since their abduction on Monday.

America is still a deeply racist country


Gone is the overt, violent, and legal racism of my childhood in the 1960s. It's been replaced by a subtler, still ugly version.

A week after Barack Obama was elected president in 2008, I walked into my old hometown bar in central Florida to hear, "Well if a nigger can be president, then I can have another drink. Give me a whiskey straight up."

Only one day in the town and I thought, "Damn the south."

I had returned home to bury my father, who had spent much of the 1950s and '60s fighting for civil rights in the south. Consequently, my childhood was defined by race. It was why our car was shot at, why threats were made to burn our house down, why some neighbors forbid me to play on their lawn, why I was taunted at school as a "nigger lover".

It was nothing compared to what the blacks in town had to endure. I was just residing in the seam of something much uglier.

It is also why I left as soon as I could, exercising an option few others had. I eventually moved to New York City to work on Wall Street.

In the next 15 years I thought less about race. It is possible to live in the northeast as a white liberal and think little about it, to convince yourself that most of the crude past is behind. Outward signs suggest things are different now: I live in an integrated neighborhood, my kids have friends of all colors, and my old office is diverse compared to what I grew up with. As many point out, America even has a black man (technically bi-racial) as president.

Soon after my father passed away, I started to venture beyond my Wall Street life, to explore parts of New York that I had only previously passed through on the way to airports. I did this with my camera, initially as a hobby. I ended up spending three years documenting addiction in the New York's Bronx neighborhood of Hunts Point. There I was slapped in the face by the past.

In my Florida hometown, there is a train track that splits the town into two colors. When we passed into the black section of town, even if I were lying in the back of the station wagon, I knew it. The gravel roads would wake me, and I could basically smell poverty through the windows.

Crossing into Hunts Point in New York is the same, complete with a train track. The roads are paved, but feel unpaved. The stench of poverty has not changed much (industrial waste rather than uncollected garbage), nor has its clamor or its destructive power.

Neither has the color of its residents: the poor side of town in New York is still almost entirely dark skinned.

It took me a few months of slow recognition, fighting a thought I did not want to believe: we are still a deeply racist country. The laws on the books claim otherwise, but in Hunts Point (and similar neighborhoods across the country), those laws seem like far away idyllic words that clash with the daily reality: everything is stacked against those who are born black or brown.

We as a nation applaud ourselves for having moved beyond race. We find one or two self-made blacks or Hispanics who succeeded against terrible odds, and we elevate their stories to a higher position, and then we tell them over and over, so we can say, "See, we really are a color blind nation."

We tell their stories so we can forget about the others, the ones who couldn't overcome the long odds, the ones born into neighborhoods locked down by the absurd war on drugs, the ones born with almost even odds that their fathers will at some point be in jail, the ones born into neighborhoods that few want to teach in, neighborhoods scarce of resources.

We tell the stories of success and say: see anyone can pull themselves up by their bootstraps, further denigrating those who can't escape poverty. It plays into the false and pernicious narrative that poverty is somehow a fault of desire, a fault of intelligence, a fault of skills. No, poverty is not a failing of the residents of Hunts Point who are just as decent and talented as anyone else. Rather it is a failing our broader society.

It took me seeing one black teen thrown against a bodega wall by cops, for no reason, to erase much of the image of seeing Obama elected. It took the unsolved murder of a 15-year-old Hunts Point girl, a girl my middle daughter's age, to make me viscerally understand how lucky my children are. It took watching as one smart child grew from dreaming of college to dealing drugs to viscerally understand how lucky everyone in my old office is.

The barriers between Hunts Point and the rest of New York are not as high as they were between the white and black section of my hometown in the 1960s. People can freely pass over them. Practically, however, they are almost insurmountable.

Gone is the overt, violent, and legal racism of my childhood. It has been replaced by a subtler version.

It is a racism that is easier to ignore, easier to deny, and consequently almost as dangerous.

Nigerian accountant's £4million 'fraud' at academies Gove hailed: Staff member said to have spent cash on extravagant lifestyle

Kayode's assets and those of his wife Grace (pictured), who died aged 53 last year, were frozen        Accountant: Samuel Kayode, 57, was told by London's High Court to pay £4.1million back to the Haberdashers' Aske's chain of academies


*Samuel Kayode, 57, was an accountant at Haberdashers' Aske's academies
*Under investigation after £4million of school funds ended up in his accounts
*Alleged to have spent much of cash on extravagant lifestyle and properties
*The High Court case is believed to be Britain's biggest ever education fraud


An accountant at a chain of academies championed by Michael Gove is at the centre of a fraud investigation after £4million of school funds ended up in his personal accounts.

Nigerian-born Samuel Kayode is said to have spent much of the cash on an extravagant lifestyle and buying a string of properties.

The 57-year-old part-time pastor was told by the High Court to pay £4.1million back to the Haberdashers’ Aske’s chain of academies more than a year ago.

He has failed to do so, and it is feared most of the cash has been transferred to Nigeria.

The case, kept secret for almost two years, is believed to be Britain’s biggest ever education fraud.

Although Kayode was arrested in October 2012, police have yet to charge him with any crime.

Chelsea Not Looking To Sell Mikel, He Was Resting - Agent



Photo: Chelsea Not Looking To Sale Mikel, He Was Resting - Agent

John Mikel Obi will join up with Chelsea FC’s players next week Monday and is not expecting to leave soon, his agent has confirmed to KickOff.

His agent told reporters that Mikel and Victor Moses had been given an extended break due to participation at the FIFA World Cup.

He said: "Mikel has been on break resting. But he is going to Austria on Monday to meet up with the rest of the team.

"I don’t know where people got the information that he was left out of the squad. He played at the World Cup, and he got a break from the club.

"It’s the same thing with some of the other players who got to the same stage. For now, he is not going anywhere. He will fight for his place. But this is football, and anything can happen at any time."

Mikel had been rumoured to be wanted out by coach Jose Mourinho due to his awful performance at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Mikel is what we call a Mourinho player. Mourinho had signed him during his first spell in Chelsea as an Attacking Midfielder, but moulded the young player then into a defensive-minded player.

Mikel has amassed over 200 appearances for the blues and winning all the major trophies in England and Europe with the blues.

Brics countries create $100bn bank to ease western grip on global finances

Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa set up bank and currency pool to push for bigger say in global financial order.

The leaders of the Brics emerging market countries have launched a $100bn (£58.3bn) development bank and an emergency reserve fund in their first major step towards reshaping the western-dominated international financial system.

The Brics group comprises Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. The bank, aimed at funding infrastructure projects in developing nations, will be based in Shanghai, and India will preside over its operations for the first five years, followed by Brazil and then Russia, leaders of the five-country group announced at a summit. They also set up a currency reserves pool to help countries forestall short-term liquidity pressures.

The long-awaited bank is the first major achievement of the Brics countries since they joined forces in 2009 to press for a bigger say in the global financial order created by western powers after the second world war, which centres on the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank.

The Brics were prompted to seek coordinated action after an exodus of capital from emerging markets last year, triggered by the scaling back of US monetary stimulus. The new bank reflects the growing influence of the Brics, which account for almost half the world's population and about a fifth of global economic output.

The bank will begin with a subscribed capital of $50bn divided equally between its five founders, with an initial total of $10bn in cash put in over seven years and $40bn in guarantees. It is scheduled to start lending in 2016 and be open to membership by other countries, but the capital share of the Brics cannot drop below 55%.

The contingency currency pool will be held in the reserves of each Brics country and can be shifted to another member to cushion balance-of-payments difficulties. This initiative gathered momentum after the reverse in the flows of cheap dollars that fuelled a boom in emerging markets for a decade.

"It will help contain the volatility faced by diverse economies as a result of the tapering of the United States' policy of monetary expansion," said the Brazilian president, Dilma Rousseff. "It is a sign of the times, which demand reform of the IMF."

China, holder of the world's largest foreign exchange reserves, will contribute the bulk of the contingency currency pool, or $41bn. Brazil, India and Russia will contribute $18bn each and South Africa $5bn. If a need arises, China will be eligible to ask for half of its contribution, South Africa for double and the remaining countries the amount they put in.

Negotiations over the headquarters and first presidency were reached at the 11th hour due to differences between India and China. The impasse reflected the trouble Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa have had in reconciling stark economic and political differences that made it difficult for the group to turn rhetoric into action. "We pulled it off 10 minutes before the end of the game. We reached a balanced package that is satisfactory to all," said a Brazilian diplomat, who asked not to be named.

Negotiations to create the bank dragged on for more than two years as Brazil and India fought China's attempts to get a bigger share in the lender than the others. Brazil and India prevailed in keeping equal equity at its launch, but fears linger that China, the world's second-largest economy, could try to assert greater influence over the bank to expand its political clout abroad. China, however, will not preside over the bank for two decades.

The NGO ActionAid International said that while it was pleased that plans for the new development bank were gathering pace, more needed to be done to ensure it was inclusive. "There are still no clear indications of how other stakeholders, including civil society, can have input into the bank's policies," said its advocacy coordinator, Sameer Dossani. "This is crucial to avoid the mistakes of the World Bank and others in the past."

Couple Married 63 Years Dies On The Same Day

pettiswedding


Back in 1951 Bob and Barbara Pettis made a vow to love each other "until death do us part" -- and they never broke it.

Eighty-two-year-old Barbara died on the morning of June 30, in an Oklahoma nursing home after battling health problems for a couple of years. 85-year-old Bob, who was in the hospital at the time with a case of pneumonia, died just hours later at 8 pm, reports NewsOK.

The couple's son, Clay Pettis, was not one bit surprised they died on the same day. "I don't believe in coincidences, and I didn't sit down and tell Dad that Mama was gone. But I'm sure he knew," he told NewsOK.

Bob and Barbara were both schoolteachers later in life and although they lived simply, they lived fully. “They lived just ordinary lives, but you get closer and start looking, and you realize that what you thought was ordinary was very extraordinary,” Pettis said of his parents.

Extraordinary indeed. Their 63-year marriage is a testament to how much they really cared for each other. "They weren’t all ‘smoochy-woochy, touchy-wouchy,’ but in their voices, and the way they looked at each other, you could see their love. Just in the little things,” said Pettis.

The couple is survived by their three children, Clay, Leslie Neeley and Jim Cole, 11 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

Suarez Needs Help Of A Psychiatrist —Uruguay President


Photo: Suarez Needs Help Of A Psychiatrist —Uruguay President

Uruguay President Jose Mujica has slammed FIFA for their treatment on Luis Suarez, claiming the striker needs help not a ban, FootballEspana reports

The Barcelona forward is banned from football for four months after biting Giorgio Chiellini during the Celestes’ match with Italy at the World Cup.

But the nation’s leader believes that the goalscorer is in need of a psychiatrist.

“He comes from a poor background and his main intelligence is in his feet,” Mujica told Folha de Sao Paulo.

“It’s better to take him to hospital and once there, see a psychiatrist.

“I’m not disputing the sporting sanctions, they’re fine. What I’m disputing is that there are certain things that shouldn’t have anything to do with the ban.

“The fact he can’t go on any football pitch, that he can’t be with any of his team-mates in the national team, he can’t go to a football stadium or even support a charity event linked with football.

“It’s crazy! Not even a government can prohibit someone from entering a football stadium, without the signature of a judge.

“Then FIFA come along and say he can’t do that for four months… without even a legal tribunal.

“I believe Fifa have a mentality of old people.

“They want to appear as though they’re learning from their mistakes, but never do.

“The only thing they generate is hatred and resentment. What this lad needs is someone to give him a helping hand.

“Now we’ll get to see (Suarez) playing alongside Neymar and (Lionel) Messi. We don’t know when that will be, though.”

Meanwhile, Juventus Director Pavel Nedved has sided with Suarez in the Chiellini biting row.

“I was very angry with Chiellini for his reaction, as he behaved like a child showing the bite mark to the referee,” he told Denik Sport.

My Relationship With Genevieve – Mikel Obi





“I spoke to her a few times and she’s a very lovely person.”

Super Eagles and Chelsea FC of England midfielder, Mikel Obi, on Tuesday explained his relationship with Nigerian actress, Genevieve Nnaji.

Mikel, who is an Amstel Malta Ambassador, spoke as a guest at an event organised by the brand on the Nigerian Breweries premises in Lagos.

“We work together, it’s a working relationship,” Mikel said. “We endorsed Amstel Malta together, she’s a very nice person; I spoke to her a few times and she’s a very lovely person.”

The Chelsea midfielder also suggested tips for success. He said that there was no shortcut to success and that hard work had a lot of benefits.

“If you run away from hard work and think there’s a shortcut, there’s no shortcut to success, so you always have to give up all the extravagant nightlife and all that to succeed.

“And sustaining it is the most difficult part of it. It’s not how you get at the top, it’s how you maintain it, how you stay at the top.

“So being at the top, you have to work twice, three times harder than you did before getting up there and that’s how you succeed.

“I love coming out here and enjoying myself with my fans. I’ve always said that if something is planned properly, I will come out and share my time with people.

“It gives us joy every time we see fans come out and support us and keep praying for us.

“I love when you guys criticise me for not doing something right; I love when you guys praise me as well. So I love all of it.”

The footballer also spoke on the abduction of over 200 teenage girls by the Boko Haram in Chibok, Borno State.

“I wish I knew where those girls (Chibok) are; if I knew I would go there and pick them up and bring them back. But it’s out of my hands but we will keep praying and keep hoping that they are all safe and they will be returned to their families.”

What if everything we know about poor countries' economies is totally wrong?


World Bank president Jim Yong Kim


As China and India continue their fairly rapid paces of economic growth, a greater and greater share of extreme poverty is going to be concentrated in sub-Saharan Africa. But if we're going to make progress there, we need to have good numbers about how various economies are faring, how income is distributed within them, and so forth.

The trouble, Simon Fraser University economist Morten Jerven argues, is that those numbers are often incomplete at best and downright false at worst. It's a problem that came into sharp relief recently when Nigeria "rebased" its GDP numbers, doubling its GDP in the process.

Jerven and I spoke on the phone about his book on the topic, Poor Numbers, the extent of the problem, and how to fix it. If you're interested in learning more, the Center for Global Development's Amanda Glassman and Alex Ezeh have a great new report on improving data quality. Columbia's Chris Blattman had a smart post on why it might make sense for African governments to prioritize things other than improved data collection, and Slate's Josh Keating had a helpful round-up of the debate here.

India six-year-old 'raped in Bangalore school by staff members'


File photo of an anti-rape protest in Delhi


A six-year-old schoolgirl has allegedly been raped by two staff members at a prominent school in the southern Indian city of Bangalore, police say.

The alleged assault happened on 2 July but her parents discovered it only a few days ago after she complained of stomach ache and was taken to hospital.

Meanwhile, hundreds of parents have protested outside the school, pulling down its gates and shouting slogans.

Police have registered a case, but they are yet to make any arrests.

The BBC's Andrew North in Delhi says it's the latest in a series of sexual assault cases that have made headlines in India.

Figures show more rapes are being reported in general, which is a sign that the crime is being taken more seriously, our correspondent reports. But India's sluggish judicial system means it can take years for victims to get justice.

New Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promised a zero tolerance approach on crimes against women, but violence and discrimination against women remain deeply entrenched in society.

The girl was allegedly raped by a security guard and a gym teacher, but as there are multiple guards and gym instructors in the school, police say they are trying to identify the guilty, BBC Hindi's Imran Qureshi reports from Bangalore.

As news of the incident became public, hundreds of parents gathered outside the school, protesting against the alleged insensitivity of the school management.

"They have handled it very shoddily," said Vivek Sharma, parent of a boy studying in the school.

On Thursday, school chairman Rustom Kerawala addressed a meeting of the parents where he offered his "sincere apologies" and promised "full co-operation" with the police investigation.

Scrutiny of sexual violence in India has grown since the 2012 gang rape and murder of a student on a Delhi bus.

The brutal crime led to massive outrage in the country and forced the government to introduce tougher anti-rape laws, including the death penalty in rare cases.

But the law appears to have failed to act as a deterrent. Statistics from the National Crime Records Bureau for 2013 show one rape was reported every 21 minutes.

Husband Kicks Out Wife From His Home Over Her Body Odour

Photo: Husband Kicks Out Wife From His Home Over Her Body Odour

A housewife in the Igbodo community of Delta State, identified as Mrs Evelyn Obiomah, has been sent out of her matrimonial home over her strong body odour.

Trouble began for her, a mother of two, when her husband, a prominent farmer in the area married a second wife and began to pick constant quarrel with her. Soon after taking his new wife, the husband had threatened to make life unbearable for his first wife.

The woman was dragged before the elders in the community to settle the quarrel between she and her husband but could not reach amicable settlement.
A source in the area disclosed that the problem between the woman and her husband further degenerated when the first wife allegedly attacked the second wife.
A substance suspected to be adulterated water was said to have been poured on the first wife which later developed into serious rashes...

She was said to have treated the issue lightly only to have observed few weeks later that a pervasive offensive body odour had subsequently taken over her entire body. Now her husband has sent her parking.

Speaking to Leadership in Delta State, the woman said:
“I have used several drugs to no avail as the odour continues in a very offensive way that has removed me from my husband’s house.”

Nigerian Student Sentenced To Death By Hanging For Trafficking Cannabis In Malaysia

A Nigerian college student was sentenced to death by hanging for trafficking cannabis in Kuala Lumpur.

A judge of High Court, Justice Amelia Tee Hong Geok Abdullah, handed down the decision on Wednesday after the defence had failed to raise reasonable doubt in Uchechukwu Nelson Ohaechesi’s case.

According to the judge, the court found that Ohaechesi, 37, was not a witness of truth. She said the accused’s defence was an afterthought, a pure fabrication and untrue.

She said the court also considered the evidence of the accused in totality to determine if the defence raised by him has nevertheless cast a reasonable doubt as to the truth of the prosecution’s case.

"The court therefore sentences the accused to death and vide Section 183 of the Criminal Procedure Code, the accused is to be hanged by the neck until he is dead," she ordered.

Ohaechesi was accused of trafficking 26,533 grams of cannabis beside an overhead bridge staircase at Taman Connaught Highway (Kajang bound) in Cheras at about 7.45pm on Oct 17, 2010.

A total of seven prosecution witnesses were called to testify, while the defence had only one witness.

''Kennis Music does not use artistes,that's beer palour talk'' - Kenny Ogungbe

Kennis Music was and probably still is the dream label of every artiste who wants to be catapulted to super stardom.  They boast of a string of successful stars like 2face,Eedris Abdulkareem  and many more. Reacting to reports the label uses and dumps artists,the CEO Kenny Ogunbe told NigerianFilms
The story that artistes on Kennis Music are just being used is not true. I see it as a beer parlour talk. There is no artiste that will allow someone use him and still remain with that person.Remember that someone spent money on an artiste when he was nobody. And so, the person that has spent his hard earned money on the artist will like to get it back later. ...

But the unfortunate thing is that a lot of fraudsters and unscrupulous people are coming into it. They will tell you that they want to take an artiste to the next level. They end up buying him a flashy car, like a jeep, not minding the fact that he is not talented. But within two years, you find out that both of them are nowhere to be found.
“There are so many of such people in the industry and there will still be more. So, the story is a mere allegation. But if an artiste feels he’s being given peanut, he should then not sign a contract. You should rather go and look for a way to promote yourself, produce your songs, direct your video and make your life better. But I know you cannot be a boss in this industry in one day.
“Rather, you have to climb through the ladder and while you’re climbing, you still have to work harder in order to achieve what you want so that you are not paid peanuts.
