You are an absolute legend. Well done mate.'The prince beamed as he entered the bash surrounded by security, while Lewis and Nicole were spotted greeting guests inside the lavish venue.
One star they chatted with was R&B singer Estelle, who provided the night's entertainment.

Ladies only: Male startup founders think your Vajay jay should smell like a ripe peach

Are you looking  for a way to change how your Vajay jay smells ? Ok ladies  two scientists have come to your rescue! Hehe!!!                   
          Both Austen Heinz and Gilad Gome plan to launch a probiotic supplement that will help women change their vaginal scent to the sweet smell of  peaches.
         Inc. reports Heinz and Gome debut their product at the DEMO conference in San Jose, California. In their presentation, the scientists outlined how women will be able to genetically change the scent of their genitals. The product will be made by Cambrian Genomics’ DNA printing technology and will be financed via a crowdfunding campaign platform named Tilt. Besides making Vajay jay smell like St. Ives, the product Sweet Peach will prevent women from suffering from yeast infections or health problems that are caused microorganisms.
In his presentation, Heinz shared:
          “The idea is personal empowerment. All your smells are not human. They’re produced by the creatures that live on you. We think it’s a fundamental human right to not only know your code and the code of the things that live on you but also to write your own code and personalize it.”
Heinz noted he and Gome chose peach as a scent in order to connect women better to their genitals. The smell will also allow the consumer to know the product is working properly. The two scientists decided to focus on changing the scent of women’s genitals because “it is less complicated and more stable.“ They also noted, it is easier to test their probiotic supplement on the vagina because it only has one interference per month.
        Across social media sites, women have debunked Heinz and Gome’s product, finding it offensive that two male scientists aspire to change how women naturally smell. Via.madamenoire

Do you find this new product offensive? 

Four priests arrested in Spain sex abuse probe

          Police in Spain today arrested four Catholic priests accused of sexually abusing children in the southern city of Granada, the interior minister said. The arrests came a week after a 24-year-old man there wrote to the Vatican alleging a group of priests molested him as a boy as well as other children."Police this morning arrested four priests implicated in this affair," Interior Minister Jorge Fernandez Diaz told reporters.
          Judicial sources last week told AFP that courts had launched an investigation targeting 12 people.The Archdiocese of Granada said it suspended several priests and sent the conclusions of its own internal inquiry to the Vatican, acting after the young man's letter.Media reports said Pope Francis ordered an inquiry into the archdiocese and telephoned the man directly to apologise on behalf of the church.
         The Archbishop of Granada Francisco Javier Martinez and other clerics yesterday prostrated themselves on the floor during a mass in a gesture of apology to victims of abuse.
After a series of paedophilia scandals in the church over recent years, Pope Francis has taken a zero-tolerance approach since taking over last year from Benedict XVI.

He said: “I’m lost for words. I want to say a big, huge thank you [to] all the fans coming out all this way – it made all the difference this weekend, and to my family and my mum back home, and to my team.”
As well as Nicole’s good wishes, Lewis received many congratulations from other big names, including Britain’s Prince Harry, who called the 29-year-old star an “absolute legend” on the Mercedes team radio.British Prime Minister David Cameron also paid tribute to the driver, describing it as a “great day for British motorsport”.
He wrote on Twitter: “Congratulations to @LewisHamilton on winning the #AbuDhabiGP and his second #F1 world title. A great day for British motorsport. (sic)”
Lewis, who defeated his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg to clinch his second world title, waved the Union Jack flag around as he drove around the Yas Marina circuit in a victory lap.

Peoples Democratic Party secretariat in Calabar, Cross River State.

           A loud explosion suspected to be bomb blast has hit the Peoples Democratic Party secretariat in Calabar, Cross River State.
           The incident, which happened at the PDP secretariat along the Murtala Mohammed Highway at about 5.30am on Monday, also affected several buildings within the vicinity.Our correspondent, who  visited the scene at about 6.30am, observed the high  presence of heavily armed policemen and soldiers who barred taking of pictures.Although no group has claimed responsibility, it should be noted that the secretariat had been under lock following controversies that trailed the November 1 wards delegate election.However, one of the residents of the area, Joel Ogunlana, said he felt the effect of the blast in his building which is 300 metres away.“I heard a loud bang and everywhere started shaking. I thought the house was going to collapse,” he said. In the compound that shares the same fence with the secretariat from behind, several glass doors and windows were shattered.Policemen rebuffed attempt to even speak with neighbours at that building as they threatened to unleash terror on our correspondent.
        Some of the overzealous security personnel jumped over the fence with their guns and threatened to deal with our correspondent and smash his phone if he did not leave at once. 
However, confirming the incident, the state chairman of the party, Mr John Okon, said “I understand they threw in a bomb or dynamite or something. The police are there and the anti-bomb squad are on the way. We would not be able to use the secretariat for the ward congresses. We would be using the Presidential Lodge. All the electoral officers are collecting their materials and going to the field. The windows and other things inside the office were destroyed.”A statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, Hogan Bassey, read, “Early today, 24th November at about 0535 hours, hoodlums who were unable to penetrate the heavily fortified secretariat by officers and men of the Command threw an explosive device from behind the premises into the building. The explosion only shattered some louvers on the ground floor. No life was lost and nobody sustained injury.” 
          Chief Fire Officer of the Quick Intervention Squad of the Emergency Response Centre, Ugbong Celestine, who arrived the secretariat at about 11am said he was called by his coordinator that there was a blast and fire and they came for rescue operations. There was heavy presence of heavily armed security agents at the Presidential Lodge. Journalists were not allowed inside. The security agents said they were under strict instructions not to let anyone inside. Reacting to the developments, Director-General of the Ndoma-Egba campaign organization, Mr Ernest Irek, said, “They are militarizing a simple thing as ward congresses and chasing away party members.”Via.punch

Charles Novia writes "I Feel Pity & Admiration for Stephanie Okereke”

          Here's what the critic just wrote on his blog about Stephanie's statement concerning her brother, Daniel's rape scandal.

         NOVIA’S NOTE: Stephanie Linus ( nee Okereke) a Nollywood actress recently put out a reproduced statement about a rape case involving her brother, Daniel Okereke , who is accused of raping a Unilag undergraduate and currently has a criminal case against him with the Police in Lagos. 
          Reading the statement, I could not help but feel pity and admiration for Stephanie. Indeed, it is a harrowing experience to have a family member accused of such a despicable and heinous crime and it is even more traumatic to be linked with the accused as if by being related by blood, she is culpable too in the crime. Using recent templates in entertainment, one should ask if Brandy Norwood was culpable when Ray J leaked the sex videos of Kim Kardashian a few years ago? Or some other examples I cannot remember at present? 

          The truth is that in law, each one is judged by their own actions and Stephanie is not in any way under the limelight for a crime which she knew nothing of. For that, I wholly sympathize with her and pray for comfort for her and other members of her family at this trying period. No matter the outcome of the case, there will always be a suspicion that Daniel Okereke did something to blacken the family name and the outcry against rape has been passionate (and rightly so) in the past decade in Nigeria.I support any action taken against rapists by the law courts and while the onus of proof lies with Daniel to prove his innocence, there is no gainsaying that this case is going to be a watershed in Nigeria’s legal system for the interest it has generated. In a way, the family name is a respected name in both the business and entertainment sectors and a high profile case such as this will involve much microscopic scrutiny. 

         I commend Stephanie’s bravery in bringing out the statement.She has proved by her action to be a worthy role model for a present generation.

Was Tyrese kicked out of Dubai nightclub for trying to Smash Kim Kardashian ?


      Recently, a number of gossip sites have rumored that Hollyweird actor Tyrese had been kicked out of a nightclub in Dubai because he was trying to holla at Kim Kardashian while she was visting for a Formula One Race.
        So are the rumors true??
       Tyrese Gibson was NOT “kicked out” of a club in Dubai after he was seen hanging out with Kim Kardashian, despite a ridiculous new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this rumor, which began on unreliable webloids.
      The site claims to have a “PIPING HOT” exclusive from one of its “ROCK SOLID SNITCHES.” the site alleges that Tyrese was asked to leave an unidentified Dubai nightclub, where he had supposedly been spotted with Kardashian. “A man who was with KIM (a VERY rich man) didn’t like what he saw,” explains the webloid. “So Tyrese was asked to leave the club.”
MediaTakeOut adds, “We’re not going to SPECULATE exactly what Tyrese and Kim were doing… but it got Tyrese TOSSED!!!” No, it did not. The first clue that this is complete nonsense is that the site’s “snitch” can’t name the club where this all purportedly happened. When Gossip Cop inquired, we found out Tyrese and Kardashian never even saw each other.
A source close to Kardashian tells Gossip Cop exclusively, “She was never in a club the night they are referencing.” Instead, the reality star was on a boat with her girlfriends. “She never saw Tyrese,” Gossip Cop is told.

Boko Haram kills 48 fish vendors

          Suspected Boko Haram insurgents killed 48 fish vendors after setting up a roadblock near the country’s border with Chad, the head of the fish traders association told the Agence France-Presse on Sunday.“Scores of Boko Haram fighters blocked a route linking Nigeria with Chad near the fishing village of Doron Baga on the shores of Lake Chad on Thursday and killed a group of 48 fish traders on their way to Chad to buy fish,” AFP quoted Abubakar Gamandi, head of the fish traders association, as saying.Gamandi said the attackers set up a barricade at Dogon Fili, 15 kilometres from Doron Baga in Borno State, and stopped a convoy of fish vendors around midday, slaughtering some of them and drowning others in the lake.
          “The Boko Haram gunmen slit the throats of some of the men and tied the hands and legs of the others before throwing them into the lake to drown,” Gamandi told AFP by telephone from Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.It was unclear if the motive for the gruesome attack was robbery or if there were other reasons for the killings.Boko Haram has once in a while targeted residents seemingly indiscriminately in its deadly insurgency.Doron Baga, 180 kilometres from Maiduguri, is the base of the Multi-National Joint Task Force, comprising troops from Nigeria, Chad and Niger fighting the Islamist group.
          The MNJTF was formed in 1998 to fight trans-border crime but its mandate was expanded as part of efforts to tame the Boko Haram insurgency in the restive region.Gamandi claimed the assailants killed all of their victims without using their guns.“The attackers killed their victims silently without the use of the gun to avoid attracting attention from the multi-national troops,” he said.Kaloma Zarami, a fish vendor in Maiduguri, said he learned of the killings from other traders in Doron Baga.Zarami said, “The news came to us late yesterday (Saturday) through some of our colleagues who came from Doron Baga to inform us of the incident because there is no telephone service in the area.We lost 48 people in the attack. Some were slaughtered and others were thrown into Lake Chad with their hands and legs tied and left to drown.”A military officer in Maiduguri confirmed the attack but said details were sketchy.
          “We heard of the attack near Doron Baga but we don’t have any details because the area falls under the operational jurisdiction of the MNJTF,” the military officer said.News of the attack was slow to emerge due to the destruction of mobile phone towers in the area by Boko Haram in previous attacks.Incessant Boko Haram attacks have disrupted fishing and farming along the shores of Lake Chad. Fishermen from Doron Baga have been forced to abandon fishing and have turned to importing dried fish from neighbouring Chad.Gamandi said the Dogon Fili route provided the safest passage for traders from Doron Baga to Chad as other routes are infested with Boko Haram gunmen who rob and kill travellers

I scaled National Assembly Gate to Save Our Democracy- Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila


         House of Representatives minority leader, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, has explained why he scaled the gate to gain entrance into the National Assembly premises. In a Facebook post, he said

         “What happened in the National Assembly  will forever live in infamy. Never thought I would see the day when I would be forced to go over the assembly gates where I work to gain access into the chambers.But then our democracy has to be saved. It was pretty clear the presidency in spite of a court injunction wanted to do something sinister and illegal.(Continue)They perfected the plot to stop the Speaker and the opposition leader from gaining entry. My members were already in chambers waiting for me to come in so as to provide leadership and direction. Most of them had gone over the fate too. I had to do the needful to save our democracy. We thank God we foiled their evil machinations. We will continue to be vigilant.”

“Rape is Rape” Stephanie Linus’ Brother Accused of Rape. Here’s Her Official Statement


          Stephanie Linus is speaking out about rape allegations made about her brother, asking fans and journalists to keep focused on getting justice for the victim and for her brother, Daniel.
Read her statement below.
         “I am distraught and devastated to hear of the recent allegation of rape brought against a relative of mine, Daniel Okereke (my brother).
While it is a very difficult time for me, and my family; I feel the need to make clear my position, lest there be any doubt. Rape is rape, regardless of who the face of the accused is.
         Indeed, the irony is not lost on me. I have spent my lifelong career advocating and living my conviction that women around the world should be able to live free of violence, sexual harassment or any form of abuse against their persons. This conviction led me to be involved in numerous initiatives combating violence against women in several countries including the U.S, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
The conviction also led me to place much of my energy on my work with Vesico Vaginal Fistula (VVF), a passion that dates back to my time at the University of Calabar.
As a student, I heard a story about young girls who had been forced into early marriage and were suffering the negative and embarrassing effects of VVF. The story stayed in my consciousness and drove me, for years, to seek ways to raise awareness on the condition; leading to my work with a team of dedicated doctors to carry out repair surgeries for VVF victims across the country; and my self-produced, soon to be released movie, ‘DRY.’
          So, again, it is indeed heart breaking for me to receive and deal with news alleging a family member of mine is an alleged perpetrator of sexual violence against a woman. I am devastated.
This case is now in Nigeria’s criminal justice system as the accused awaits arraignment. I have also encouraged and assured the alleged victim of my stance against rape and applaud her for her bravery to upset the culture of silence, in Nigeria; even as I accord deference and patiently wait for the criminal justice system to determine the guilt or innocence of my brother.
For Nigerian press and blogs; I call on you to please report this case in an ethical manner. I am a married woman living my life. The alleged transgression of my relative does not make it mine. The focus should be the impact of rape on the alleged victim, and resources for other alleged victims, not me.
       Some members of the press and blogs have turned me into the accuser; using my name for sensational headlines and putting my images, exclusively, in their stories. This is a form of victimization of me as a woman, its unethical and extremely hurtful. I am not the alleged accused.
I therefore please ask all bloggers and the media who have placed my pictures and name to this story to refrain from further using me to sensationalise this story.
I thank my fans, and all well-wishers for your continued support and ask for your continued prayers.

God bless.”
