Men Of My Age Are ‘Small Boys’ Around Me----Uche Jombo

In this interview with Sam Olatunji, Uche Jombo speaks on cheating and new movie ‘Unconditional’.

What is it with the celebrity kids on your new movie, ‘Unconditional’?

We didn’t set out to use celebrity kids. I told everyone including you the age range I want and people suggested the kids. Aghahowa’s daughter has wanted to act since age 5, we auditioned Chigozie, and she did well and got a coach to coach them. 2face’s daughter is just a drama queen. And this movie, Unconditional is not all about them, Dakore, Ruth Kadiri and I acted in it. It’s the kind of move that will touch the heart.

If your husband were to be a serial philanderer like Desmond’s character in the movie, Lies Men Tell, what will you do?

I will castrate him, he knows and believes that. To me, there is no excuse to cheat, its either you are with someone or not, and if you are tired of the person, please accord the person decency of respect by saying it’s over. Don’t go making someone look stupid. The problem …

Juliet Ibrahim, Yvonne Nelson Shun Each Other At Lagos Event

One thing very common among the female folks is malice keeping. It sometimes gets worse when two females are getting media attention in the razzmatazz world, where jealousy comes in due to the inherent competition that has become a common occurrence amongst them.

With this in mind, one cannot quickly forget the longtime perceived enmity between two sensational actresses, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and Genevieve Nnaji, which was only reportedly settled by the current boss of Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Ibinabo Fiberesima.

In the Nigerian entertainment industry today, beefs are very common in the movie industry. But can it be reduced or stemmed? It is a big question that no one can give a definite answer to. The Tonto Dikeh/Mercy Johnson rivalry is still proving to be a rock of Gibraltar that cannot be removed.

Some days ago, two of Ghana’s biggest movie stars; Juliet Ibrahim and Yvonne Nelson were in Lagos for an event, which attracted many celebrities. One would have expe…

Just like the organisers of the prestigious Miss Global Nigeria (MGN) promised that the 2013 edition of the event will be fun-filled and special, they fulfilled that promise.

It was all fun yesterday for the contestants of the beauty pageant, who are presently in camp, as notable celebrities hidden in an arena, made dramatic entrances into their midst. The girls couldn't but show excitement as they embark on the task of a guess game to name the particular celebrity who had been waiting to welcome them for the seven days camping adventure.

While they were still searching the nooks and crannies of the fabulous apartment located on the 8th floor, another celebrity walked into the shot by alighting from the lift.

The girls were all smart to get the drift as they all continued with the search, after shouting, screaming to welcome the emergency one that alighted from the lift, they knew there was somebody else they needed to 'smoke out' somewhere somehow.

Keshi: Yobo still captain

Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi confirms that Joseph Yobo is still the Super Eagles captain even though even though he has been left out of the national team set-up since Nigeria won the Africa Cup of Nations in February.
Keshi confirmed this to media on Wednesday at the team’s camp in Abuja.
“It will not be fair to invite Yobo to the national team and ask him to be on the bench, it will be a huge disgrace and I won’t be part of that.
“When the team needs him he will be recalled and will definitely start as captain even if along the line, we substitute him,” Keshi said.
He then underlined the conditions for Yobo to make a return to the team.
“For the captain of the team, he has to work extra hard to remain so because he is leader of the team and that has been the philosophy of the team since we took over because that was the way we were brought up to captain the national team,” he added.

Timaya Blasts OAP on Air

The Egberi Papa 1 of Bayelsa may like his music fast-paced and energetic, but when he talks, he wants you to listen, and listen carefully.  Timaya, while trying to explain the points of his argument during a live programme at Blaze FM, Nnewi, was rushed off a question one time too many. The artiste didn’t find that amusing and he made his feelings known on air. An act of arrogance and pride most people call it, but it seems as if the artiste knows where he is heading when he cut his host off saying, “Why do you journalists (OAPs) always cut people off? You ask one question and won’t allow people to ‘land’ before asking another.”  The host of the show, JJ, graciously allowed the artiste to have the microphone and voice out his mind. Well, it was during the interview that Limpopo King, KCee who was also being interviewed,  announced that he would soon be dropping a new single with his ‘partner on the streets’, Timaya. He also used the opportunity to tell his fans that Limpopo

Chukwu warns against complacency

Former Super Eagles’ coach, Christian Chukwu, has charged the home-based Eagles to take their second leg African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifier against Elephants of Cote d’Ivoire serious to enable them book their first CHAN tournament ticket. Chukwu warned the team not to expect a warm reception in Abidjan.
The Coach Stephen Keshi led Super Eagles on July 6 defeated their Ivorian counterparts 4-1 in the first leg decided at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna and will be hosted by the West African neighbours in Abidjan on July, 27 to decide who amongst them will qualify for the competition for national teams made up of home-based players billed for next year in South Africa.
Nigeria has never qualified for the competition; Eagles lost out to Ghana in the race to the inaugural edition in Cote d’Ivoire in 2009 and then faltered against Niger Republic in the qualifying series for the second edition in Sudan in 2011.
But the team stands a good chance of qualifying f…

AGN Gives N.5m To Lagos Chapter Boss, Victor Osuagwu

The national body of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) led by Ibinabo Fiberesima has given the sum of N500,000 to the Lagos State chapter of the guild, headed by its chairman, Victor Osuagwu, who is a popular comic actor.

The presentation was done on Tuesday, July 16, 2013, at the national secretariat of AGN in Surulere, Lagos.

Speaking on the donation, Ibinabo said, “this fund is not a gift, but money from the recent revalidation exercise of AGN members. It belongs to the Lagos State chapter because after revalidation, members of AGN, who revalidated were majorly from Lagos State chapter.

“The national had an amount from the revalidation process while the state chapter also had. So, that is the cheque we presented to the Chairman of the Lagos Chapter of AGN, Victor Osuagwu and his executives.”

Purity is a big girl indeed.

Stop complaining if I don’t call

Super Eagles Head Coach Stephen Keshi has urged his players to show patriotism while featuring for the country. Keshi said it was unconventional for coaches to inform players before they are dropped from the national team and that a call to serve the country was a rare privilege that should be embraced. The Big Boss said: “It is only in Nigeria that you hear a player complaining that he was not informed before he was dropped from the national team. “Many of us played for the national teams, nobody gives you an excuse why you are not being called. “I was the captain of the Super Eagles in 1991 when we played Burkina Faso in Lagos. I came all the way from Belgium only to be told by our coach that my name was not among those invited. “I had no option than to stay away from the team. When you decide to call a player, it is only out of respect. It is not that you are obliged to do that”. The former New Nigeria Bank of Benin captain advised players to show more commitment to nat…
