Nollywood Actress Nuella Njubigbo and movie director/producer, Tchidi Chikere are reportedly concluding plans to tie the knot.
The wedding will be taking place on Friday, 28th of March, 2014 in Anambra.
It was gathered that the couple decided to take the bold step as they were tired of hiding their affair and because Nuella was pregnant again.
Last year, there were reports that Nuella had moved into Tchidi’s home and that she lost a pregnancy but they both denied this.
Tchidi divorced his wife Sophia and the reason for their separation has kept under wraps but some sources said it was because the ex-wife had been unfaithful in the marriage, while others claim that the Actress Nuella was the reason for the breakup because they were dating while he was still married to Sophia.
Like I have always said, Nigerian students are no dull brains, they are only handicapped by the non-working atmosphere and condition created for them. Here is a solar-powered vehicle built by Oyeyiola Segun, a Part 5 student of the Electronic and Electrical Department of Obafemi Awolowo University.
In an exclusive interview by OAU Peeps Forum, he explained how the car came into existence and the motivations behind it.
OAU Peeps: Can we meet you sir?
Segun: Okay, I am Oyeyiola Segun, a part 5 student of Elect-Elect., OAU
OAU Peeps: We learnt you built this lovely car. Was it a joint project or you did it yourself?
Segun: I did it only. This is not a day’s job, I have been working on it for some months now.
OAU Peeps: So how does the car work?
Segun: Basically it depends on Wind and Solar energy. All the energy derived for these two sources were converted to run the simple car. There are different means of obtaining energy from these two sources but I picked the one that is cool for my car.
OAU Peeps: From what you just said, you can either use the Wind or Solar Energy to power the car’s engine?
Segun: Not either energy, rather both energies are used to power the car.
OAU Peeps: Cool… that differentiates your production from the usual vehicles we see around us I suppose?
Segun: Yes, you are very correct.
OAU Peeps: Could you share with us what actually provoked your innovation? I mean what you thought before coming up with this lovely engine?
Segun: Basically, it is because of the climate change we experience due to the combustion of fuel and you know cars also contribute to that change. So I thought of running a car that will not use fuel for its locomotion. After series of thinking and research work, I came up with the simple method that gave birth to this. So that is the basic reason for the car. Another concern of mine is to produce a car that will function effectively at a reduced cost of maintenance. I believe you know the price of fuel in this country is almost going beyond the reach of a common man?
OAU Peeps: Yes, you are right. Is there any other peculiarity of the car that you will like to share apart from the once you have mentioned?
Segun: Of course yes. Another thing that distinguishes my car from the common ones you see around is that you can know the state of the car through your mobile phones. I wrote a software that you can install which will give you the basic information about the car while in your room.
OAU Peeps: What do you mean by the State of the car?
Segun: I mean the functionality of the car, like the battery level, the weather conditions, the distance you can cover during different weather conditions. In case you have a bad weather. The car also has a GPS in it that helps to know the location of the car. These and many other features embedded in it.
OAU Peeps: Wow! this is very lovely. Do you have plans replicating this nice work in the future?
Segun: The work has come to stay, but I need to keep improving it for now.
OAU Peeps: It took you how many years to put this together?
Segun: That your question can be phased into two categories, do you mean mentally or physically?
OAU Peeps: Lol… you are right. Let us talk about the Physical aspect of it now.
Segun: Okay. We all know how our country is, I mean to get money is not easy but I pray that God will make it easy for everyone of us. The truth is, I cannot really say how long because I started using my personal little money to get the materials together. Let me just say about twelve(12) months.
OAU Peeps: Did you encounter any major challenge during this project?
Segun: Yes, Money. Even at the moment, I still need funds to get some others materials which are in my original paper design which I have not implemented on the car.
OAU Peeps: What will be the summarized cost of this car when fully ready?
Segun: There are lots of things that will lead to summary cost of production, so for now I cannot specifically state the cost but with all the materials that I will be needing since I am not producing in large quantities, its close to a million naira. Now quantifying my effect and others on foreseen cases.
OAU Peeps: Finally, your message to fellow Nigerian students?
Segun: My message to my fellow students is that Rome was not built in a day. It is better to start anything you want to do now and don’t never, I repeat, never expect someone to believe in your dreams because they may not understand it as you do. Endeavor to follow your heart and do what will make you happy and that which will not affect your fellow being negatively. May God help and bless us all.
OAU Peeps: Amen. Thank you so much Engineer, we are indeed proud of you.
Segun: You are welcome and May God help OAU Peeps Forum too.
Meet Ghollywood Star Nadia Buari’s sister. There is a story behind their skin contrast. Aysha Buari’s dad is Alhaji Sidiku Buari, who adopted Nadia when he married her mum. That explains the look.
However Aysha who relocated back to Ghana from the USA to pursue acting showed off her new glowing skin her new look at a movie première this month. Unbelievable.
According to the Independent, the babies’ parents could not afford an ultrasound, which would have picked up on their condition in utero. “The parents are very distressed, and we are helping the family the best we can,” said Dr. Shikha Malik, who delivered the babies. The twins are currently in the hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU), and doctors are worried that they have a very slim chance of survival.
The infants were born via cesarean section at Cygnus J.K. Hindu Hospital in Sonipat, Haryana.
They suffer from dicephalic parapagus, meaning they have separate spinal cords, necks and heads, but they share all major limbs and vital organs. Conjoined twins with this condition typically cannot be separated.
Please appreciate the fact that men and women are wired differently. They have different ways of expressing and varying levels of emotional understanding. Avoid making silly mistakes by getting a few simple things right. These are some of the ten most common mistakes women make in a relationship.
1. Too many questions about the past:
The fact that your man is in a relationship with you currently is proof enough that he is in love with you and has already gotten over his past relationships. While it’s good to know a little bit about his past, don’t take the liberty of digging so deep that his wounds freshen up.
2. Visiting his workplace:
This is quite a sensitive issue as most men don’t like their girlfriends dropping in at their workplaces without being told. It is only if you are in a steady relationship from a long time or engaged that you can take the liberty of dropping into your man’s workplace uninformed.
3. Bringing up marriage:
If you have been in a relationship for a long time, it’s but natural that you will talk about marriage and settling down at some point. You may have a conversation about this once but don’t bring up the topic again and again. You will be at a loss if your man gets irritated by the same conversation taking place repetitively. It’s not that men are averse to commitment; it’s just that they take some time in taking these important decisions.
4. Pretending to be someone:
If there is anything that men hate, it is lies and hypocrisy. Many women make the blunder of pretending to be what they are not in reality. For instance, if you don’t like putting on makeup and dressing too much for a party, don’t do it just for him. He will immediately sense your discomfort. He would much rather appreciate and love your honesty and expect you to be what you are.
5. Compare financials:
How would you feel if someone compared your salary figures to that of your contemporaries? Terrible, surely! Although in today’s world, women see themselves as equals to men, men still think of themselves as bread earners of the family. Treat your man with respect irrespective of his earning. Don’t ever make the mistake of comparing his financials with others.
6. Don’t attempt to mend him:
Accept him with all his flaws and abilities. Don’t try and mother him to change his habits according to your needs. Give your man his space and watch how that automatically brings him to you.
7. Giving too much freedom:
If you see your man talking to other women at most of the parties and even going to the extent of flirting with them when you’re around, take that as a warning signal and strike on it as soon as possible but don’t be rude, do it politely and in style. You may be making a terrible mistake by trusting your partner blindly with such behavior.
8. Expecting expression of feelings all the time:
Men are not used to constant expression. For instance, you should expect a compliment from him once in a while but if you start expecting it every day then you are calling for trouble. You have to understand that just because men don’t express the way in which women freely do; it doesn’t mean they don’t love with passion.
9. Talking negatively:
If you bitch about others in front of your man all the time (once in a while is acceptable of course), it will make him feel that someday when you are not together you will talk about him in the same way with other people. Don’t make an impression on him that you are a negative person.
10. Comparing Looks:
Impress your man by showing some confidence about how beautiful and attractive you look. It’s not your outfit but your confidence that attracts your man. In trying to fish for compliments by comparing your physical appearance with other women, you are just making matters worse.
In-addition: Women often commit blunders with men in relationships. It’s a matter of understanding that men have a certain way of dealing with things that is different from women. Once you get this point, you will be much more comfortable and at ease in dealing with the men in your life. (WATCH OUT FOR 10 MISTAKE MEN MAKE IN A RELATIONSHIP)

They may act like they don’t care about love but most clebreitis are like us.Ice Prince shared this photo of his grandparents and said…
“Today I cried… My Grand mum and dad are in their 90?s and i still see love in their eyes… Told me stories about my late mum and Dad too… Some things are wey too deep to explain brother… #JustDreamAboutSomeShit that’s all”
The rest of the day went on relatively bad for me because even after her class she dragged me to the staff room and reported me to the entire staff rooms and you know how we men can do over sabi just to impress a lady.
One big headed male staff voluntarily decided to beat me for no really just reason, as in, why would you beat a student merely because he slept off during a boring class? It wasn’t entirely my fault na, after all, Aunty Ebere was boring too, did anybody beat her? Was the questions and thoughts than ran through my head as ‘Mr oversabi’ whipped me like I had stolen his lunch.
I went to hostel later on that day crying, not because of the beating or punishment but because I had already missed lunch. When I got to hostel, it was quite empty as almost everybody were still at the dining hall, I sat on my bed and thought about how my day went. I firstly recalled the events of ‘Senior Jerry’, ‘Aunty Ebere’ and then ‘Mr Voluntary flogger’, out of nowhere I found my eyes getting moist.
‘If am at home now, who would tell me to knell down under the hot sun? Or why the hell would I have to wake up by 4am and the first thing that would be done to me is be beaten by a so called senior Jerry and friends’ were the questions that flooded my mind as the tears increased. You know that time you cry for so long that you have no more tears to cry out and then you develop a chronic headache? That was my exact situation when a tap on my shoulder brought me out of my intense crying session. I looked up at the person standing in front of me only to see Stanley with a worrisome look planted on his face.
‘Who beat you?’ Was the first question he asked. ‘Ermm.. Err.. Nobody’ I replied partially truthfully. ‘Talk jhur!’ He urged me.”Err.. Am serious, nobody beat am, I’m just missing home’ I replied and suddenly found renewed strength to cry out more vigorously than before.
Stanley suddenly bursted out in laughter for reasons I knew nothing about. The funny thing was, Stanley has this kind of infectious laughter, as in, when he laughs you would suddenly feel the urge to laugh too even if you have no reason to, so slowly, I stopped crying and my lips first curved into a smile and before I could say Jack Robinson, I started chuckling.
‘So you dey try tell me say you dey laugh because you dey home-sick?’ Stanley asked speaking pidgin english with his flawless ‘Warri’ accent still laughing. ‘Err.. Errmm, its not just that jhur, I’m also hungry’ I replied in my consistent flawless english. ‘Oh! You no get zape?’ He asked. ‘I get but everything dey my guardian house’ I replied, finally joining him in speaking pidgin.
‘Oh! Okay, carry your cup follow me, come take garri’ he replied and walked to his corner. I didn’t need to be told twice before I speedily followed him with immediate effect. He not only gave me garri, but gracefully gave me sugar and when it got to the milk, he just said; ‘no vex, but, I no dey share my milk. I just smiled, thanked him and walked back to my corner grinning widely.
Just as I added water to the zape and was about taking my first spoon a senior walked into the room and scream ‘Last boy!’ On top of his voice. I was already accustomed to what ‘Last boy’ but I knew I would definitely be the last boy if I even attempted running for it because I would have to drop my zape in my locker first so that it won’t ‘grow legs’ (I hope you know what I mean), so I sat down on my bed and waited for the worse to happen.The senior sighted me from where he stood and slowly walked towards me then said ‘So you are now my mate shey? Abi you don’t use to hear in the afternoon. ‘I err.. Err.. Ermmm’ I stuttered not really knowing what to say (what could I even possibly say na?)
He landed a back handed slap on my cheek that was approximately twice that of Aunty Ebere’s, I lost my balance and the zape I had been protecting with my life fell off and poured. He didn’t seem to be bothered by that as he just said; ‘Follow me!’ His facial impression was all I need to know that he didn’t need to repeat his self. I looked at myself and stood up then followed him with my subconscious wondering what the worse that could possibly happen. The funny part of it all was, this was kind of still my first day.
Elizabeth Dickson a 28-year old playboy model has sued playboy and radio host, Kelvin Klein for hitting her butt with a golf club while trying to hit a ball off a tee placed between the cheeks of her buttocks during an amateur golf tournament in California, March, 2012. The model is suing both parties for $500,000 after claiming she gave no consent for the ball to actually be hit from a tee placed on the cheeks of her buttocks while the game was on.
The model who was invited to come and partake in the amateur golf tournament complied with a request earlier in the day to lie flat on her stomach with her buttocks partially exposed for a photograph with Klein. But now, Elizabeth is claiming that even though she complied, she never gave her consent for Kelvin to hit the ball from her butt, before the accident occurred.
Fast-rising Nollywood actress, Chika Agatha is endowed with brains and beauty. In this chat with The Nation she talks on her passion for acting, among other interesting stuffs and some personal issues.
What are you currently working on?
I have a few scripts right now, so I will soon hit the locations. However, some of my works were recently released into the market. One of the movies, Temple of Serpent, was released not long ago and is currently doing well in the market. Also, Sex in the Bar Beach, Ajekpako Billionaire and Sons of Zebedee will also hit the movie shelves soon.
What is so special about your eyes?
If I go to any audition, my diction and my eyes do a lot of magic for me; I think I’ve got sexy eyes.
Why talking about your eyes? You are endowed with big boobs…
(Laughter) Really? I wasn’t aware that I have huge b00bs. , what part of your body do you treasure most? Different people have different parts of their bodies that they treasure. For me, it’s my eyes. When I look at you, if you are someone who isn’t prepared intellectually, you will end up doing my wish. But most importantly, I try to use my eyes well, not just in my career, but for effective communication, generally.
How far can you go to interpret a role?
Expose sensitive parts of my body? I think it depends on the role I’m to play…
What about a role where you have to make real love?
(Laughter) I haven’t thought about that yet. I’m still an up-and-coming actress, so I’ve to position myself in such a way that will make people start requesting what I can’t give. For now, I don’t know if I can do a movie, where I will have to make love for real. Of course, I can do romance. But when you mean real love making, I don’t think I can do that for now [maybe later?].
What about going nudé?
You mean baring it all, without pants and bra? That is on the extreme. For how much? Maybe if I were a Hollywood actress, I could… In Hollywood, going nude is like a normal thing. When you are with your husband in a movie, everyone knows you are with your husband and you could be nude. The same thing applies when you are in the bathroom or going swimming.
Are you in any serious relationship now?
Yes, I am in a serious relationship that is just about few weeks’ old.
Few weeks? Are you saying you recently quit a relationship?
Yes, I did. But I really don’t want to talk about it. I have moved on.
Roles are not easy to come by. So, do you have to get down with a producer for a movie role?
Getting down with a man? You mean the man f*cking me? Life is full of uncertainties! What after getting down with him and he wakes up from another side of his bed and says, ‘No, I won’t give her the role again?’ What then do I do? I believe more in getting my roles on merit than cheapening myself and turning myself into a séx symbol.
Nollywood actor, Ganiyu Oyeyemi, popularly known as Ogunjimi was last week arrested for allegedly raping his daughter’s friend in Osogbo, Osun State.
The actor was arrested and detained on Tuesday by the Osun State Police Command after a 22-year-old lady (names withheld) laid a rape complaint at the police station. The case has, however, been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department in Osun for further investigation.
Reports say doctors have confirmed that the victim was violated by Ogunjimi. The actor was said to have been responsible for the upkeep of the lady and her mother who until recently lived with him in his Osogbo residence. The victim’s mother had left her with Ogunjimi in Osogbo and relocated to Lagos before the incident occurred.
A senior police officer at the Oke Bale Police Division where Ogunjimi was taken after his arrest told reporters that the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), transferred the case to the SCID due to the overwhelming pressure mounted on him to release the suspect.
Osun Police Public Relations Officer, Folashade Odoro who confirmed that the case had been reported to the police, also confirmed that the popular Yoruba actor was being detained at the SCID, Osogbo.
A 17-year-old Nigerian girl Forester Samson (pictured above) was stabbed and burnt to death in Moscow, Russia by yet to be identified Russian gangstars, according to a report by Sunday Sun.
Sunday Sun gathered that she was murdered by yet-to-be-identified Russian gangsters. According to a family source, the perpetrators went further to lock her body in a room and set it ablaze. Though, the police took her to the hospital, it was rather futile.
The source revealed that Forester was sponsored abroad by one Mercy who is suspected to be trafficking Nigerian girls on the promise that she would assist them with decent jobs in Russia. The teenager without hesitation, but with the approval of her mother jumped at the offer with high hopes.
According to the deceased’s elder sister, Sonia Samson, they got a call from Mercy, on Tuesday March 4, 2014 that Forester had died in an inferno. She added that the family was later told that Forester was stabbed before being set ablaze.
Sonia said, “Her madam is the one that called us on Tuesday and told us she was locked in a room and set ablaze by some unknown Russians. She told us that she was rushed to the hospital, that they were treating her.
“Later that day, she also told us that she was initially stabbed before she was burnt. Not too long after, she told us that she was dead. The madam said she was not the only victim in the attack. She said there were five other Nigerians, that another one died four or five days after the attack.
“My sister died mysteriously, just as another sister of mine was also killed by armed robbers. Sincerely, I am confused because I don’t know why all this is happening to us. Particularly for me, it is so painful that I don’t really know what to say or do. This is a difficult time for the family and I believe we need to be more prayerful more than ever before.”
The late Forester, who would have been celebrating her 18th birthday on March 30 hails from Igbekhue in Orhionmwon Local Government Area of Edo State. She completed her secondary education in 2013.
Forester’s father, Friday Osazuwa Samson was killed four years ago in Benin by suspected armed robbers. He was shot in broad daylight in front of his shop at Upper Sakponba. Until Friday’s death, he was a successful businessman, a distributor with Sona and Bendel breweries.
Siblings and other relatives of the late Forester’s father are worried and pained by circumstances surrounding how Forester was lured into traveling to Russia, which they described as shady. Recognizing the fact that she did not travel to Russia for further education, even as they were not also informed of such plans, they are calling on concerned authorities to wade into the matter.
They are accusing Mercy of human trafficking and calling on National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) to investigate the activities of this said Mercy. They also want the Nigerian Embassy in Russia to as a matter of urgency unravel the mystery surrounding the death of their daughter.
The dastardly act took place on March 3, 2014. Since the news broke, the entire family has been thrown into mourning.
Sonia, who still finds it difficult to believe that her sister was gone, lamented that Forester’s death was too painful for her to easily accept. To her, she would have better been dreaming and be glad that the story was not true.
Meanwhile, Forester’s uncle, Mr Saturday Samson Osazuwa accused Forester’s mother of conniving with the said madam (Mercy) to deceive and persuade the teenager to travel abroad. He queried why Forester’s mother, Elizabeth, decided to hide his niece’s whereabouts from him. Saturday, who now acts as a father figure to the children since their father’s death, said the mother refused to disclose where Forester was, even as he insisted on seeing her.
Said he: “The mother was aware that Forester had traveled abroad. Not just that, I believe she was part of the arrangement that her 17-year-old daughter should travel abroad. It is really unfortunate and wicked of her to have taken that decision.
“If my brother, her husband was alive, he would never allow such a thing for any of his children. What was Forester looking for in Russia? Was it to go there and school? Certainly not. Now, she has caused the entire family pain and sorrow. The girl was beautiful and intelligent. I still cannot understand what she was sent to Russia to do at her tender age.
“For more than five months, her mother was dribbling me whenever I wanted to see Forester. I sent for her to come and see me on a number of occasions but they kept telling me that she was residing with her mother’s relatives in Benin here only for me to receive a call from them that she was dead in a fire accident in Russia. This is the girl that they kept telling me was in Benin. Until her death, the mother refused to tell anybody in our family. If she thought that the children belonged to her alone, that is where she’s mistaken.”
Also, an uncle of late Forester’s father, Mr Evabayekha Christopher, described Forester’s mother as callous. He wondered why any reasonable mother would send her own daughter abroad for monetary reasons.
His words: “What exactly will Forester be doing abroad when she was supposed to be studying at the University of Benin or any other higher institution of learning in Nigeria? What she did is unacceptable to every member of our family.”
