Carrots are more than a tasty addition to almost any dish. They are also good for your body’s overall health, especially that of the skin, eyes, digestive system and teeth!
So if the sweet flavor isn’t enough, enjoy these 10 reasons to eat more carrots:

1. Beta carotene: Carrots are a rich source of this powerful antioxidant, which, among other vital uses, can be converted into vitamin A in the body to help maintain healthy skin.

Oge Okoye’s Mum Now Sells Cars

Nollywood actress, Oge Okoye’s mum has just joined the bandwagon of people who bring in cars into the country to sell. The ageless mother of the beautiful thespian, Oge, we recently scooped, came to town a few weeks back with some space buses where she stocked with all sort of things to give away to friends and family.

The busses, information revealed, are meant for sale at very reasonable prices, any interested customer should contact the woman through her daughter, Oge or through this office, sure you would get a fair deal!

As you are reading this, she is already looking for a perfect location where she can use as car lot to display her cars whenever she comes home. Good thinking you would say!

Charlyboy: My Oga at the top: Stop the rubbish

It’s unfortunate, this article is coming in late. This is because I almost ignored the racket “ My Oga at the top” generated. However, because of some salient lessons in the whole joke, I have decided to hit you with this.

Even though, my ways may be very different from yours, I still believe we must be objective in our analysis, judgment, and conclusion about others. The NSCDC Commandant, Mr. Shem’s experience in the hands of Nigerians and the Channel TV personalities cannot be too different from what many of us face on a daily bases.

Some of us have been arbitrarily judged, smashed, squeezed, criticized, and battered for several years because we have failed to be who they want us to be. Different darts and missiles have been thrown at us because they chose to judge us from the first impression they conceived about us. What insult haven’t we received? They will try to judge you by the few words they hear from your mouth.

When you use signs and symbols to communicate natio…

2face and Annie White Wedding In Dubai


The Man Who Gave 2face N20m For His Wedding

Ayiri Emami, the Warri born oil magnate is a man many will not stop to admire. This stupendously wealthy dude gave a whoping N20m to support 2face and Annie’s wedding in Dubai. Not only that, this lover of Tuface’s song, Ayiri, we learnt, also ferried his yacht from the US to Dubai for their wedding


The hero of the Super Eagles’ draw against Kenya in Calabar Nnamdi Oduamadi reveals how his plans for an elaboration dedication to his loving mum were affected by the result. The Varese winger also reveals his ambition regarding AC Milan, among other issues…

After more than eight months out of the Super Eagles, how does it feel returning to the team and scoring a decisive goal to earn the team a point on Saturday?

It feels good to be back in the team and to have scored a goal as well but it would have been wonderful if we had won with the three points in our kitty. Everyone expected us to win but we couldn't get behind the Kenyans who were on the back foot for the better part of the game. We still have three games to play and I believe we will finish as group leaders.  It would have been more painful if we lost. We conceded a goal against the run of play and we didn't take our chances;  but give it to the Kenyans too because they did well.
Watching the Ea…


Nigeria midfielder John Mikel Obi is bristling at reports that he is about to get married to model Sandra Okugbue.

A national tabloid reported on Monday that Mikel was set to wed the former toilet soap model, but the midfielder angrily dismissed the claims.

"I don't understand where this is coming from," Mikel told on Monday.

"I know her. We're friends, but we haven't spoken in a long time and definitely not about marriage."

The report claimed that the traditional introduction has been scheduled for this Sunday in Onitsha, but Mikel was firmly categorical in his dismissal. "There's nothing like that," he said.

Mikel played in Nigeria's 1-1 draw against Kenya on Saturday, and joined the rest of the squad in attending a reception held in honour of their African Nations Cup triumph by Akwa Ibom State governor Godswill Akpabio on Sunday in Uyo.

The midfielder flew out to London later that …

Kenya came to frustrate Eagles –Keshi, Maigari

Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, has said the Harambee Stars of Kenya’s game plan was to frustrate the Eagles immediately they arrived in Nigeria during their Brazil 2014 World Cup qualifier played on Saturday in Calabar. The Kenyans, who haven’t beaten Nigeria in 13 previous meetings, almost recorded a shock win over the Eagles, when they took the lead in the first half at the UJ Esuene Stadium with the Nigerians managing to equalise in the last minute. There was a harsh exchange of words between the Nigerian and Kenyan football authorities after the visitors alleged that they received a cold treatment by the Nigeria Football Federation ahead of the match. But Keshi hailed his players for putting up a spirited battle in ensuring the game ended 1-1, adding that the draw was a wake-up call to the players and the technical crew.  “From the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, they started their complaints and they came to Calabar with the same attitude but w…

Emeka Ike takes stand on gay marriage

FIERY Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike, who is on self-imposed sabbatical from the industry, recently took a stand against legalising gay marriage in the country at Vchannel Celebrity Night Out at Troy Lounge in Lagos.
Emeka, while fielding questions from Vchannel presenters, said Nigeria should not follow the footsteps of United Kingdom (UK) that legalised same-sex marriage recently. ‘Knowing our penchant for ‘copying’ others I want to plead with Nigerians not to encourage same-sex marriage. I don’t hate gays but I don’t support gay marriage either. God does not want it, our culture forbids it. We should not encourage what is not right. This is about defending whatever is left of our culture. Nigeria should not go the way of UK, we are people of culture. I want our legislators to stick to their guns and not legalise what will be eroding our culture and make us a godless people.’
He also spoke about family, acting and the lingering AGN crisis. Actors Chidi Mokeme …

Nigerian high-life musician and a new Glo Ambassador, Bisade Ologunde aka Lagbaja is without doubt the best in his game.

A source revealed to the reason why Lagbaja never unmask his face.
There was a photo that went viral and there were claims that it was Lagbaja but According to the source: “It is not Lagbaja, I know him. Why are you even trying to unmask him? He has his reasons for wearing the mask.
He used to be in the choir at emmanuel Baptist Church in Ilorin and his parents are prominent Baptist members. His family opposed his decision to sing that kind of music.
They believed that he wanted to disgrace them because of their position in the church. That was why he put the mask”.
The Ologundes are from Ijagbo near Offa in Kwara State.

Blackface Is Angry With 2face For Not Inviting Him To Dubai

Blackface, one of the famous but defunct group, Plantatun Boiz, is not happy at the moment with Tuface, a former buddie and pal, for not sending him invitation to Dubai for the superlative wedding.

Blackface expressed his grievance recently on a social media; Twitter, when a fan asked him why he was not at the event. And his response was like “I no dey go where I no dey invited!”

From the look of things, it’s so obvious that the guy is not happy for being segregated to witness the wedding despite the fact that the song that actually made Tuface, The African Queen, was composed by him. This is really not good enough!

Back in the day, 2Face was one part of three-member boy band ‘Plantashun Boiz’. After releasing classics like “Knock me Off” and “You and I“, the group split amidst controversial circumstances in 2004. It seemed all members buried the hatchet however as the group re-united to release one final album ‘Plan B’ three years after the split.

Omotola's Marriage Clocks 17, Says 'Capt M Ekeinde, You're A Good Man'

The marriage of one of the blessings to Nollywood, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde clocks 17 years today, Saturday, March 23, 2013. The day also doubles as the birthday of her husband, Captain Mathew Ekeinde.

The two lovebirds have remained strong as if they just met each other. Their marriage has become a model to many not only in Nigeria alone but throughout out the world.

This can best be explained when world class magazine, OK Nigeria, a franchise of OK magazine, profiled Omotola and her hubby as celebrity couples who still have very strong marriages built on love. They were profiled alongside President Obama and wife; Jay Z and Beyonce; and few others.

For Omotola, there is no better way to proclaim her love to the man that has stood by her than to let the world know about that man. She used the opportunity to reaffirm her love for Captain Ekeinde who she describes "a father, mentor, teacher, friend and trusted companion."

Exclusive: 2Face and Annie Idibia’s Wedding Vows

This is so touching, Tuface and Annie Idibia’s wedding vows. Please read it below.
2Face’s Vows;

“Many years ago I was farther than the eyes could see.
Now we are now in that future
When I look into your eyes, I still see
You came into my life and you lit it up
Like the sun, like the moon, like the stars
All the words in the dictionary
All the words in this world can not be enough
To say what my heart feels for you.
But all I can say is baby, my heart is like a stereo right now
And it will beat only for you till death do us part.
I love you baby.”

Annie’s Vows;
“My joy! My heart! My friend! My love!
I stand before you today as open as I can ever be, humbled by the light and love in your eyes.
13 years ago, I met the most amazing man on earth! I flew on the wings of that love, uncaring, unheeding! Believing firmly that you are and will always be the wind beneath my wings!
Life happened, oh yes Life happened but through it all my heart beats only for you!
My heartbreak became my greatest joy!
My strength!…

I Get Tired Of Hearing How Big My Head Is – Banky W

Banky W had some free time on Sunday, away from home and work, and decided to spend it with fans on Twitter.

He got cozy with fans answering all questions and replying to all mentions as much as he could; mostly lauding him for a great work done on the still-selling R&BW album.

What caught my eye however was the part where a fan asked Banky W; “Do you ever get tired of hearing how handsome you are?”

I’m sure ‘@TheNubianQween was disappointed at Banky’s response. She’d be expecting something sweet, or just a ‘thank you’, but Banky W replied with; “I get tired of hearing how big my head is.”

I’ve heard folks say in the past that Banky wears a cap always because he’s got a big head. Come on guys!


The superlative wedding of Tuface and Annie might have come and gone, the impression left behind will forever lingers. One of which is the public outcry about the reason for the lavished gifts on the couple by Governor Akpabio. The man of the house, Tuface has responded critics and we believe it’s a final answer to every question.

“I don’t feel strangely for getting support for our wedding, I am just happy and that is the most important thing. My wife is from the Akwa Ibom State and the governor of the state is like a father to her.

The governor said he was doing all these because he loves his daughter and I don’t think I should feel anyhow because a father is showering his daughter blessings. I don’t believe anybody should feel anyhow, it is a celebration mood, so everybody should be happy,” 2Baba, as he’s fondly called responded.

On their choice of Dubai for the white wedding, Tuface said it’s more spiritual than physical. Before they left for Dubai, he explained that, “I think ther…

Afam Ukwu Community Demands New MoU From SPDC

The Afam Ukwu Community in Oyigbo Local Government Area of Rivers State says for its relationship with the Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) to improve beyond mere rhetoric's there must be a change of heart on the part of the multi-national oil company.

To this effect, the people of Afam Ukwu, a community blessed with four gas wells and two oil wells producing about 15,000 barrels per day want the SPDC to revisit its Memorandum of Understanding (Mou) with a view to living up to its corporate social responsibilities to the community.

This is against the backdrop of total lack of social amenities and other good things of life in the area.

As host of the gas well that powers the famous Afam power plant, Afam Ukwu community is supposed to be appreciated by both government and the SPDC by providing the community with good drinking water, good roads, schools, hospitals etc but all these are said to be lacking with the exception of electricity.

According to the spokesman to th…
