Jose Mourinho knew he had to quit Real Madrid after seeing the way on-loanChelsea midfielder Michael Essien had been treated by his ‘teammates’. The Sun says the on-loan Chelsea star invited all his Madrid colleagues to his birthday bash but only a handful of them turned up. And it was left to the Bernabeu boss to console his upset player. He told the Ghana international that it was nothing personal — it was not that his team-mates did not like him and, sadly, it was not because they had anything better to do. It was simply because they were more interested in themselves than anything or anyone else. No related posts.

Why are Naija companies laying off staff? Yesterday April 30th Visafone fired over 60 of their staff nationwide. Stanbic IBTC also sacked 250 of their staff. The sack takes effect from today May 1st. The Stanbic IBTC sack yesterday crossed across all levels, from management to lower level staff and I hear this is just the first batch. The bank is planning to do another round later this year. The sack at Stanbic yesterday only affected full staff employees as the bank intends to make its workforce 20% permanent staff and 80% contract staff. The total workforce before the sack yesterday was about 3000. The sad part is there are so many fresh graduates in the job market. Culled from Linda Ikeji’s blog No related posts.

Please, I need you readers candid advice on this issue. I met this really hot guy in a bbm group and we hit it off immediately. He wanted a relationship but we couldn’t have one because of the distance. He lives in New York and I, Nigeria. We kept in touch though. He was in Nigeria recently and we met briefly. He was everything I wanted in a guy. Imagine my horror when I walked into my dad’s family house and saw him sitting with my grandma and my dad. The look on his face was indescribable when my dad introduced me as his daughter. We had not met earlier because my dad stopped talking to his elder sister (his mum) way before they got married over some stupid mistake my aunt made. Apparently, he came back to settle the dispute between the family members. Now, he says he’s in love with
