Winners Chapel GO Bishop David Oyedepo who recently turned 60, has reacted to the Forbes List of World's Richest pastors where he was placed at No.1 with an estimated worth of about $150million.
Asked about Forbes' estimate of his fortune, Bishop Oyedepo told Reuters that he doesn't know how Forbes arrived at their figure but says he's blessed...

Kim K crowned world's best butt as 45% of women around the world now want 'The Kim'

Kim Kardashian's butt is what most women into body enhancement are now seeking. According to a research released over the weekend, Kim K has been World's Best butt and over 45% percent of women seeking to enlarge their butt in the last one year want what they now refer to as 'The Kim'.

Longevita plastic surgeon Prof. Dr. Fuat Yuksel, who commissioned the research, said: 
'Kim has been popular among women seeking bottom augmentation or "Brazilian butt lifts" as they are more commonly known, for a few years, but in the last 12 months we’ve had a massive rise in the numbers asking for a Kim Kardashian bum. The procedure is performed through liposuctioned fatty tissue being injected into the buttocks. Kim has risen from just outside the top ten to the number one position in record time and is a firm favourite among women in the UK and elsewhere around the world."
"The Brazilian lift is now one of the most highly sought-after procedures we do - we’ve seen a 200 per cent increase in the number of UK enquiries for this procedure in the last 12 months alone. British women love beauties like Nicki Minaj and Kim Kardashian who have bigger bums and are not afraid to flaunt them.' Dr Yuksel said.

Between Linda Ikeji and Mr Aye Dee. The real shocking story

This story was culled from Linda herself.
What you are about to read is quite long…and chilling! I wasn’t going to share this info in public but after I showed it to some family members and a few friends who came to the house this morning, everyone agreed that I need to share this, that you all need to read this. You see, what happened with my blog wasn’t about beef. It wasn’t because I showed off my new SUV. It wasn’t about plagiarism, or copyright infringement. It was something deeper, very personal and maybe even more dangerous. Some would call it obsession.

To understand this I am going to start from the beginning but before that I want to talk about plagiarism. My understanding of plagiarism is when you take someone’s work and republish it verbatim as your own work. I don’t do that. But if I have ever done that in the past then I apologize. It was an oversight. I do get a lot of original content, way more than any other blogger in this country. Some of the biggest news stories in this country in recent times was broken by LIB. From Goldie’s death (God rest her soul) Aluu4, ABSU rape, P-Square saga, Solomon Akiyesi and plenty more. And when I take news from other sources, I always credit them. When I don’t give credit is when the news is everywhere so I write it in my own words and make it mine. I don’t believe that is a crime. I admit that I have used photos without giving credit. I apologize. That will never happen again. You learn every day. And I have learnt from this.   

Now about Mr Aye Dee. Let me start from the very beginning so you guys understand what really happened. Like I said earlier, this was not about copyright or plagiarism. It was personal. Very personal. In 2009 or 2010…(not sure) a guy named Alex who used to run 1976AD blog contacted me. He said he was impressed with my work and wanted to encourage me to never relent. Alex Info 1976AD (how I knew him back then) and I became very good friends online. In fact he was my confidant. Every time I had questions or challenges, I would reach out to him. 

By 2011, Alex 1976AD and I became quite close…online. We even exchanged numbers and spoke a few times. He always reminded me how proud of me he was. He told me I would one day become a phenomenon. I wasn’t number one at the time but he told me that I would one day be the biggest news site in Nigeria…that he believed in me that much. He was my friend, my supporter; he sent me news to post on my blog. He wanted me to succeed. He told me things to do to get more readers. He knew a lot about the internet and how it works so I always went to him for advice. He was my anchor.

In 2011, Alex 1976AD made me his blog’s Person of the Year 2011. I shared that post excitedly on my blog. He said I was the most deserving Nigerian for the award that year…and he wrote the most beautiful article about me. He was so proud of me…and never hesitated to tell me. I was grateful. I was happy to have him as a friend...even though we'd never met.

Then we stopped talking. I sincerely can’t remember when exactly. I know that Alex 1976AD tried to reach out to me mid last year…but I can’t remember if I responded. If I didn’t, it was an oversight. I’m really bad at replying mails because I get so many and I’m always busy blogging…but anyway.

Google Explains Why LindaIkeji’s Blog Was Shut Down, Not A Case Of Witch Hunting

Yesterday, the Nigerian blogosphere went agog as tech giant, Google shut down the blog of celebrated blogger, Linda Ikeji, following widespread allegations of copyright infringement and plagiarism levelled against her.
It all began a few days back when one Mr. Aye Dee, Editor-in-Chief of United States-based 15Past8 media group, reported Linda Ikeji to Google, accusing her of copyright infringement.
“Google just notified us that they are removing our copyrighted content from Linda Ikeji’s website. All the stories and images Linda Ikeji took from me without permission in the last few days have been removed from her site by Google. Someone has to say something. It costs money to get good work done. I spend time getting information from my sources, as well as analysing and verifying the information. All that costs money. I don’t mind donating my time for Nigeria’s sake, but for someone to take my labour and use it for personal profit, no way!”  Aye Dee had tweeted.

Tragic News!Baba Suwe’s Drug Case Lawyer Bamidele Aturu Slumps And Dies In Lagos

The death of prominent Human Rights activist, Bamidele Aturu has been announced. Bamidele came to prominence as a fighter against power abuses when, as a corp member in 1988, he refused to shake the hand of a military administrator of Niger State, Col. Lawan Gwadabe during his NYSC passing out parade. Bamidele had declared then that the military had caused great harm to the democratic aspirations of Nigerians. 

A very close pal to the deceased, Dr Joe Odumakin said Aturu was unconscious on the way to the hospital and didn’t make it there alive. He further said that the cause of his death is yet to be determined.
Debo Adeniran of CACOL who expressed sadness over the untimely death of Aturu said the Human Right lawyer slumped.
“I was told he collapsed, but the news did not come to me early. By the time I heard it, I called his wife, the background noise coming from the other end seemed sounded like a church setting. It was another person, a lady, who picked the phone and was just shouting: ‘it is well’ and that Aturu’s wife cannot speak to me.
“He must have overworked himself or he is a victim of the doctors’ strike, but we will know in due course,” Debo Adeniran said.
Before his death, he was the founder of Bamidele Aturu & Co.
His corpse has been deposited in LUTH Mortuary for autopsy.
He was 49 years old. May his soul rest in peace 

Paternity Suit Drama! A Second Love Child For Beyonce’s Dad And Second Half Sibling For Her – Photos

Papa knowles was sure going through some ‘stuff’ to have impregnated two women back in 2010. Now only 1 woman Alexsandra Wright spoke up at that time. But now it seems Beyonce could have another sibling she knew nothing about as her father Matthew Knowles has been hit with another paternity suit by the other woman he impregnated,  TaQoya Branscomb.

According to Buzzfeed,  the lingerie model turned estate agent alleges he fathered a female child born in 2010 in Harris County, Texas, and is demanding he takes DNA test.

She is also going after the multimillionaire for child support and money for her attorney’s fees.
Matthew certainly has previous form, after he was forced to admit in 2010 he was the father of actress Alexsandra Wright’s son, a development which allegedly led to his divorce from wife Tina after 31 years of marriage.
Earlier this year he succeeded in getting his child support payment for his son slashed due to his dwindling income, despite earning millions as his daughter’s manager.
The legal maneuver came as it emerged he had skipped yet another month of payments to Alexsandra Wright, the mother of his four-year-old son Nixon.

I Am Governor Rochas Okorocha's Daughter-Like, Not His Girlfriend-Nkiru Sylvanus

Nollywood actress, Nkiru Slyvanus, who has been off the movie scene for some time after being the former special assistant on Lagos Affairs to Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State , has been having little controversies lately which she was able to address as a guest on Channels TV program 'Sunrise Daily.'

She gave her take on the issue of being in a polygamous marriage as it tends to be one trend going on for ladies now; here is what she said “It depends on who and the condition. If the situation is right and the person is good, I will go for him. It is the situation and seeing the right person that makes you settle for a partner. There is no problem about that at all,” “I am single but not searching because someone has already spotted me,”

On the allegations of having an affair with the Imo state Governor, Rochas Okorocha, she debunked the rumour stating that the governor takes her as his daughter. “I have known the governor for a very long time. There is nothing between us. He even see me as his own daughter” she said.
