Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas reportedly split

According to multiple sources, one of the most eligible bachelors in the world, Prince Harry, 29, is back in the market after splitting from girlfriend of almost two years, Cressida Bonas, 25.

From E! Online...
E! News can confirm that the two, who began dating almost two years ago, are no longer dating. A source tells People magazine that Harry found Bonas "too needy" and that "it just wasn't working out."
However, Showbiz Spy is reporting that their relationship came to a halt because of concerns on Bonas' end. "Cressie is still young and had huge reservations about marrying into the royal family," a source told the site.
E! News also reported earlier that Cressida has been nervous about the attention she'll receive if she ever made it official with Prince Harry. The shocking split comes on the heels of months of speculation that the redheaded royal was inching closer to popping the question to the beautiful blonde.

"It Was All a Publicity Stunt,We Played the Media"-Psquare's Publicist + Laura Ikeji Replies(Linda Ikeji's Sister)

Just when we thought this chapter was closed, it's re-opened. Psquare's Publicist, Bayo Adetu spoke to Icon Weekly magazine where he explained the reason behind the breakup reports

Greetings, Bayo, we heard that the Okoye brothers have finally reconciled, can you give us an insight on what really happened?
After a long laugh… My brother, I’m telling you this as a friend, there was no fight at all. The whole thing started after Jude tweeted some days back and bloggers feasted on it and gave it several interpretations which never existed, and that was how we got here.
Are you saying there wasn’t a fight at all, how then did Peter and Paul keep releasing comments through their Facebook accounts?

My guy, I can authoritatively tell you that neither of the P-Square brothers, nor even Jude operate their Facebook accounts anymore. Whatever Facebook posted was from an impersonator, pretending to be anyone of them. P-Sqaure is active on twitter, not on facebook, so you see, the whole thing was founded on lies.Continue..

Accounts of Churches and Mosques Should Be Audited Annually – CONFAB Delegate Proposes

Do you think this is necessary?...

 Dr Jonathan Obaje, a delegate representing Diaspora-Asian in the ongoing national conference and member of the Committee on Religion, has advocated for the annual auditing of churches’, mosques’, and temples’ accounts.

According to him, religion has to be “protected from being hijacked by criminals who hide under religion to commit crimes against gullible innocent citizens.” Hence, he's proposing that the accounts
and finances of all registered religious organizations, churches, mosques or temples must be audited annually by special religion account auditors. And then that the head of the auditors to these registered religious groups shall be from a different religion.

 In a position paper submitted to the committee and circulated to newsmen, Dr. Obaje postulates that the following should therefore be made Religion Crimes punishable by law:
  •  1. Mounting of loud speakers on churches, mosques and temples which disturb personal and public peace of other citizens should be prohibited and punishable by law.
  •  2. Religious buildings located in any community with population density of more than 1,000 persons per square kilometre should be sound-proof such that nobody outside the building can hear any sound from inside the building.
  •  3. The broadcast of religion programs on public media should be prohibited. Provisions should be made for licensing of exclusive Religious channels.Continue...

Barcelona star Dani Alves responded to a racist taunt in the most incredible way during a match yesterday Sunday April 27th

While playing for his team against Villareal, a spectator threw a banana at him as he tried to take a corner kick. What do you think Dani did? He casually picked up the banana, peeled it, eat the banana, threw away the peel, and then completed the kick...

Chibok Kidnap:Abducted school girls spotted in military coloured vehicles around Gwoza-BBC reports

Almost two weeks after they were driven away from their boarding school in the town in the middle of the night, there is no sign of the over 187 abducted girls.
According to BBC,
A resident of the small town of Gwoza in the remote north-east said on 25 April she saw a convoy of 11 vehicles painted in military colours carrying many girls.
This will be of little comfort to the parents as it suggests at least some are now even further from home, close to the Cameroonian border.
The fact that Islamist fighters from the Boko Haram group are still able to move across parts of Borno state in convoys points to the severe limitations of the current military strategy.Continue..

First born girls are more likely to suceed

Whoop!According to a new study conducted by the University of Essex, girls who are first born are more likely to succeed and be acheivers..They took a cue from some of the world's most powerful and successful women  like Miss Atinuke, J.K. Rowling, Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey and Beyoncé.
Lead researcher Feifei Bu said:
 ‘There are several possible explanations for the higher attainment and ambition of the eldest.It could be that the parents simply devote more time and energy to them – it could be they are actually more intelligent. For me, I tend to lean towards the theory that parental investment is possibly at work here.’
They are 13 per cent more ambitious then firstborn sons,But firstborn boys – such as Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and George W Bush – were next in line for success.

The report – Sibling Configurations, Educational Aspiration and Attainment – followed 1,503 sibling groups and 3,532 individuals through the British Household Panel Survey and its successor, Understanding Society.

"Nigerian men should know being romantic isn't about money"-Toke Makinwa

When asked by Nigerian Tribune if Nigerian men are romantic ..Toke said '
"I think they could do with a little bit of help, but on the average they try. People need to understand that being romantic doesn’t equate with money, you don’t have to spend money to be romantic.

So I moved in and met a friend of mine called Prosper who is actually one of my biggest
fans in her place. But he was also living in a separate room with the lady. As time went on, this guy started disturbing me for sex. He said he liked me and would not mind having an affair with me.

Here is the powerful message Prophet T.B. Joshua passed on yesterday, Sunday 27th April 2014 in his church concerning the abducted schoolgirls in Borno State:
“They have to be released. That is the voice of God. I saw a vision where some of these girls have escaped and they are trying to find their way from the forest to the town. In the midnight, some of these girls ran away. The ones that are still under their custody – God said He will release them. This is the voice of God. God has spoken – these children must be released. We can’t wait to see them. God has marked them that nothing should happen.  
The family members of the abducted schoolgirls - your pain is our pain. I learnt many of
the parents are in the bush. Please come back home. It is not your battle alone but the battle of all people of God all over the world. They are also our children.  
We are in a spiritual battle. God has promised all of them will come out free, without harm and hurt. However, if there is unnecessary confrontation, it may affect them. Continue..
