Yes! magazine replies Harrysong, insists he did say his parents are siblings

published on Sunday, 27 April 2014

Yes! Magazine quoted singer Harrysong as saying his parents are siblings in an interview with them a while back. Harrysong released a statement some days ago denying he ever made the comment. The magazine editors have now released their own statement insisting that he did say it.Our attention has been drawn to a very disparaging comment from Harrysong, an up and coming artiste over an interview we conducted with him at Kcee's Omole Phase 2, Ikeja, Lagos home. As a responsible medium, Yes International! had wanted to ignore him and his deliberate act of mischief. But on a second thought, we decided otherwise, because in our considered opinion, it will be suicidal to disregard the young man's insinuations and cheap blackmail. However, we are also not unaware of Harrysong's ignorance and this again is a restraining factor on our side. ContinueSo, we wish to inform Harrysong and people like him that a print medium or any organization for that matter that deals in news has a right to stagger any interview. What is giving him sleepless nights is the content of the interview which very few people will be proud of. But he did not speak under duress. So, we are wondering what prompted this sudden outburst and antagonism. More so, when he applauded the interview at the time it was first used on the cover of our magazine.  For the records, it is important to state that this controversial interview resurfaced because our website crashed and in rebuilding it, we are uploading our lost materials. In addition, we wish to inform Harrysong that the original tape is still intact and if he wishes to listen to his voice one more time, he is free to drop by at our Budland, Ikeja, Lagos office. Likewise any other person.

Experts say Tiwa Savage’s dress wasnt right for her!

published on

She must have spent a fortune, wasted days and hours for fitting and amendments, but the expert jury we put together to access the wedding dress has given velvety voiced Tiwa Savage a hard knock!

We are told that the ball, strapless gown could have been perfect if Tiwa Savage was a fuller figure woman but for her shape it was off the mark. In fact, one of the experts said jocularly that except she had become pregnant over night; it was not appropriate. "The gown looked oversized at first glance and that is not a good sign at all"."Tiwa is svelte, with an hour-glass shape to die for, did you notice that with the dress? If you didn't then that dress did not pass the first test of fitting. Maybe the gown minus the frills would have worked better" one of our experts noted.

But Tiwa got excellent marks for her make-up which was described as flawless. Her make make-up handled by Joyce Jacobs, took care to work around her cheek bones and was perfect. Same high marks went for her hair done by Debola Falana. And her veil too was given thumps up.

Trust the bride to be so carefully scrutinized, the groom who wore   suit crafted by Nigeria's own Mai Atafo was adjudged picture perfect-same with his best man, Banky W. His outfit was also Mai Atafo inspired.

The wedding reception ceremony which was the Armani Hotel which is located on the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world was exquisite. It is no surprise that the décor, the planning and the execution was superb, that is because Elohor Aisien's Prive Event was in charge.

We gathered that the celebration was in three parts. The first part was the wedding proper where the couple were formally joined as one flesh and one blood. This was held in an open plan area that was decorated slightly and guests were seated church-style facing the couple. Thereafter, the reception was held at the Armani Hotel.  The after wedding party was also held at the hotel and it rolled till the wee hours of this morning.

Columbus Short leaves Scandal! Sigh!

published on

Im so sad! I love Columbus! What is up with him?

Columbus Short played the character of Harrison Wright on the hit series.
But as of now, he will no longer be part of the show.

In a statement made to Essence Magazine yesterday, Friday 25th April 2014, he said; "At this time I must confirm my exit from a show I've called home for 3 years, with what is the most talented ensemble on television today. I would like to first thank Shonda Rhimes for the opportunity to work with such an amazing cast. Thank you GLADIATORS, who have supported me throughout my entire career and of course to ABC and Shondaland for allowing me to play such a pivotal role in the Scandal series. I have enjoyed every single minute of it. Everything must come to an end and unfortunately the time has come for Harrison Wright to exit the canvas. I wish nothing but the best for Shonda, Kerry and the rest of the cast, who have become like a second family to me in such a short amount of time. For this, I will forever be grateful. "

This sad news follows reports of domestic violence between Short and his wife Tuere McCall-Short who recently filed for divorce and claimed he threatened to kill her and himself. This was all before the creator of the series, Shonda Rhimes, threatened to fire him if he didn't get his together on hearing the report. We guess her threats are definitely not idle.

Ferguson supports Giggs’ appointment as United boss

published on

Ryan Giggs has received Sir Alex Ferguson's backing, after he was appointed as Manchester United's interim manager.Ferguson, who reluctantly agreed that David Moyes be sacked this week, stated that Giggs was the perfect choice to step in for the rest of the season.Giggs is determined to land the job on a permanent basis and Ferguson has said that the Welshman is United through and through."">"I think that he [Giggs] is the one man they should go to, really," the Scot, who retired as manager last summer after 26 years, said."He's got 20-odd years of experience at Manchester United. I signed him as a kid. He's gone through the gamut of emotions at the club – he's experienced all the highs and lows."He knows exactly what's needed to be a Manchester United player and I was so pleased he brought Paul Scholes back in, and Nicky Butt of course – two great professionals. They understand the club, they are hard workers, they are straight as a die."So you have got the right combinations there, there's no doubt about that."

Oprah's step-mum calls Oprah's relationship with bestfriend; Gayle bizarre

published on Thursday, 24 April 2014

Oprah recently got a court order to remove her from her mansion leaving her homeless so she's looking for ways to get back at the billionaire by talking to the press and spilling family secrets. In a recent interview with UK Daily Mail, Barbara Vernon, 66, who was married to Oprah's dad for 14 years, claims that Oprah's relationship with bff Gayle King was bizarre. She's implying that there's more going on between them despite the fact that Oprah has had a man in her life in the last 28 yearsOprah began dating Stedman Graham in 1986 but, according to Barbara, who is now divorced from Oprah's dad, in all the times she saw them together she never once witnessed them hold hands or kiss.'Once Oprah took us on a Mediterranean cruise. That was an amazing thing she did. She rented a $30million yacht and went on an 11-day cruise. She's very flamboyant. We had meals three times a day, three courses, different place settings, different cutlery, glassware, different everything three times a day but she never talked to me and Vernon. She didn't spend any time with us. It was always her, Stedman and Gayle. The three of them. Anytime you looked up they were together. To me it was just bizarre. I can only say what I saw and observed over the years. Gayle was more present than Stedman."

Oprah's relationships with Stedman & Gayle have long been the subject of much puzzled speculation.Barbara said; 'He was comfortable like an old shoe, to her. They stayed in the same room when they were here but he didn't live with her exactly. He travels so much; he would fly here and there to her. He's at her beck and call. I think in the beginning it was different. Vernon told me how one time he was driving and Oprah was taking Stedman to meet family in Mississippi. He said she was running her hands through his hair the whole trip, till he was so fed up he was ready to put her out of the car.'She wanted to get married at first but he wasn't so keen. Then she became this powerful person and things changed, the balance switched.'Nowhere could that be clearer than on the occasion when, according to Barbara, Oprah ensured a book written by Stedman made it onto the bestseller list.She claimed that the star bought a warehouse and filled it with Stedman's books.'It worked,' she said, 'His book was a bestseller. Stedman isn't a good steward of money and that suits Oprah fine. He is financially dependent on her. He knows her secrets and she knows his. Why would they marry now? He's there at her beck and call. He knows his role in her life.'And just as importantly he understands Gayle's role in Oprah's life. Barbara said.'Gayle is very, very present. I don't know any man I've ever dated who could tolerate that, but Stedman knows Gayle's going nowhere. They speak on the phone three or four times a day. She believes Oprah and Gayle's relationship is 'unhealthy'.Frequently, she said, Oprah's communications to her or Vernon, now 81, were delivered through Gayle. When notorious biographer Kitty Kelly was working on a book about Oprah and interviewed her father in his barber's shop it was Gayle who called to berate first Barbara, then Vernon.And when Oprah spoke of herself as part of a couple, the 'we' in question more often referred to her and Gayle, than her and Stedman.Barbara said: 'The day I called to tell her that her father had been held up at gunpoint in his barber's shop her response was, "Well, I expect him to be found dead in there one day."'I asked her why she would say something so cold, she said, "Coz it's true. Gayle and I have already discussed it and we've accepted that."'That's how it was with them.'Sometimes I believe that Oprah is more dependent on Gayle than the other way round. I don't know what she would do without her friendship and if it's not more than friendship then they're certainly giving every appearance that it is.'But don't forget, Oprah has her brand to live up to and her father is a very conservative, traditional man. He's a deacon of his church. He always thought she should get married.'Oprah's highly public, lifelong struggle with her wildly fluctuating weight, is linked to her effort to 'be' the brand according to Barbara.She said, 'She's a stress eater. Food is her comfort. Potatoes are her downfall, potatoes, potato chips…any kind of potato.'But you rarely saw Oprah fix a plate of food and eat it at the table with everybody else.'If she joined you she would pick at other people's plates. If she saw something she wanted she'd just take it straight off their plate and wouldn't even ask.'The star would frequently instruct Stedman to make a doggy bag of food to take away rather than enjoy it in company.She reflected, 'Nobody can live up to being Oprah. She's human like I'm human. She's not perfect.'Given her unenviable position today it might seem surprising to hear Barbara express sympathy for Oprah, yet she does, repeatedly.'She tells the world what to do but she's in inner turmoil. Everybody thinks she has all the answers but she needs to sit down with Dr Phil.'She continued, 'Vernon often told me that he thought if Oprah could change the color of her skin she would  - she'd make it lighter.'Barbara recalled an occasion on which she, Oprah and Stedman had been out walking their dogs, Solomon, a brown cocker spaniel and Sophie, a black dog of the same breed.'I told her it suddenly struck me how she looked like Sophie and he looked like Solomon – like owners come to resemble their dogs. Oprah said, "No. I look more like Solomon. HE looks more like Sophie." I hadn't meant it to be a slight about color but that's how she took it.'It's hard to believe Barbara made the remark in wide-eyed innocence, oblivious to the fact that telling your stepdaughter she looks like a dog might be taken as a slight.Still, she insisted, 'Color was a real thing for her. It's one of the things she liked about Stedman. He has what we call 'high yellow' skin and soft hair. He's very pale complexioned and she liked that.'The cover of next month's edition of her eponymous magazine, 'O: The Oprah Magazine' shows the star, resplendent in Purple alongside the promise, 'How to Love the Skin You're In', but according to Barbara, that is something Oprah herself has never quite managed to achieve.That unhappiness plays a part, she said, in the bitter denouement of her divorce from Vernon. It explains, to some extent, Oprah's need to insert and assert herself in any of it.She said, 'She's a billionaire three times over, doesn't it seem so petty?'If I could I'd like to tell her how sad it is she never took the time to get to know me as a woman. I would still be married to Vernon I think, if she had.'To me it's just such a sad story at the end of the day.'

Jonathan has agreed that UNILAG retains its name– Vice Chancellor

published on

President Goodluck Jonathan has agreed that the University of Lagos should keep its identity ,pending the resolution of the National Assembly on the issue.It would be recalled that Jonathan had on June 12, 2012 announced the change of the institution from University of Lagos to Moshood Abiola University.The declaration which triggered a protest, also led to a court case that forced the Federal Government to back down on the plan."">Speaking to the Nigerian Tribune, UNILAG Vice Chancellor, Professor Rahman Bello, disclosed that Jonathan had decided to leave the final decision on the name change to the National Assembly, since it was an Act of Parliament that established the university."Unilag is the first university in Nigeria to be established by an Act of Parliament. So, anything as regards name change and everything about the university were an Act of Parliament," he said."So, anything that would affect any change whatsoever would have to go through the legislation. And that is what the president has agreed to take its course," Bello said.He added that the proposed name change had been sent to the National Assembly and whatever the decision House took would be final."So, we are waiting for that. For now, the status quo remains. We remain the University of Lagos," the vice chancellor said."">He also revealed that the university was set to commence with the new session, a Bachelor of Arts degree course in the Chinese Language.Noting that Unilag was the first to introduce the degree in Africa, Bello said the decision was borne out of the need to satisfy the growing Chinese influence in Nigeria and the world generally."There is hardly anywhere you go today without seeing one or two Chinese companies around. Since they are here with us, we must be able to take advantage and partake in the businesses as well."So, by offering a degree in Chinese studies, those that we will train will be able to understand the Chinese Language and culture better and be able to inter-relate between them and Nigerians and be relevant in whatever businesses the Chinese operates here," Bello stated.


Tiwa Savage’s Dubai Wedding: Banky W Replies Critic

published on Tuesday, 22 April 2014

See how Tiwa's wedding is causing so much buzz. So today, stars put up the promo picture for Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz ' pre-wedding party and the comments came in. Some positive,  some negative. 

After posting the image on his official Instagram page, @bankywellington, someone commented on why the couple didn't choose a Nigerian city for the wedding.

The critic, @afrikaetal said; "Why Dubai all the time. Use the powerful platform you have to promote your home country instead of the hypocrisy of always running to other Countries. If you all invest the money into small businesses in Nigeria or Africa at lage, we too will have others running to us # proudly African #"

Banky W immediately responded and said;  "Such comments irritate me. We use the platforms we have to promote Nigeria all the time. We invest our money in Nigeria, You don't know the number of kids we put through school with scholarships, the number of health care bills we pay for people…you don't know the number of Nigerian companies we bank roll and float or the number of ideas we invest. It's hard enough finding happiness in this world…Two people should be able to celebrate it any way they fell like it!!! PLUS They already did their traditional wedding in Nigeria, they should be free to do whatever or go wherever they want for the white wedding. It;s THEIR wedding. Not a country's…not a state's…not mine…and certainly not yours. Leave them be. People all over the world get married, go on vacations or honeymoons, wherever they feel like it all over the world. Our ppl (people) should be allowed to do the same without being branded hypocrites. You and the high horse you rode in on should have several seats.My goodness.".

What do you think?

The nuptials, however,  are set to take place on Saturday 26th April 2014 at the Armani Hotel, Dubai.

P-Square on the verge of splitting. Read full details from LIB

published on

When asked yesterday, P-Square's publicist, Bayo Adetu, said the report of a psquare breakup is 'baseless and untrue'. Unfortunately, it is not! It's either Bayo is clueless as to what is happening in the Okoye household at the moment or he thinks the best thing to do for now is to deny that there's anything going on. I wrote that the twin brothers Peter and Paul engaged in physical combat on Wednesday. If this was false, Peter is a social media person, he would have immediately denied it. He didn't!Unfortunately P-Square fans, things are even worse than I reported yesterday. According to my findings, Peter Okoye wants out of P-Square and they have even gone as far as inviting a lawyer to divide their fortune.Now, let me make this clear. This report is based on what's been happening with the brothers up until right now Saturday April 19th. I don't know what will happen tomorrow, next week or next year but as of right now, Peter Okoye doesn't want anything to do with P-Square. I'm still hoping and many others are, that they will resolve their issues and realize that splitting will do no one good. So hopefully, they will resolve their issues. But I will still go ahead and tell you guys what's happening with the brothers as of now.First, Peter Okoye has moved out of Squareville mansion in Omole where he lived with his brothers for years and now lives in Lekki Phase 1 with his wife Lola Omotayo and their children. An industry person I spoke with, who knows what's been going on, told me this;"Yes they fought this week. Peter even left a mark on Paul's left eye. But the fight wasn't during rehearsal, which rehearsal? Peter has refused to do anything P-Square for weeks now. Forget that he was at his brother's wedding, things are not good between them right now. They were even invited to perform at president Jonathan's wedding but they didn't go. Peter wants out. He said Paul and Jude are sidelining him. That if they push out 200 songs, 199 would be songs Paul did. That people are now calling him a dancer in P-Square. Peter is really angry. He's even the cool and friendly one between the brothers but he is not himself right now. And then he accused his brother Jude of disrespecting his wife. Peter and Jude haven't spoken in weeks. Peter said Jude has been disrespecting Lola for years and he was done tolerating the BS. In fact Peter said that not only is Lola older than Jude, but that she's also pregnant and Jude was upsetting a pregnant woman. If you notice Jude didn't attend their wedding last year despite the fact that he was in Nigeria. Jude asked Peter why he didn't marry Lola when their mother was alive. Jude said it's his wife that is pushing him and they will need to pray for him. In fact nobody in the Okoye family likes Lola and they didn't support the marriage. The brothers are really angry at each other. The police is even involved. This week, either the commissioner of police or someone from his office visited their house.The worst part is that they have invited lawyer to come and share property o. They want to share everything. The lawyer was at their house I think on Thursday. Peter said no more P-Square joint ventures. You know they own everything together, including a house in Omole, Parkview and Atlanta. Except something is done fast P-Square is about to be finished. But I know that people have been intervening and begging them to reconsider, that they are the biggest musical duo in Africa. Nobody will benefit if they split. The power to make money is in their togetherness.It is Jude people are begging to keep the brothers together, but after what he tweeted yesterday, it may truly be over for P-Square. Jude has really tried for his brothers, for him to give up may mean it's over for them.He practically put his entire life on hold for his brothers. Even sold his first car to shoot their first video but all that is about go come to an end like he tweeted. The only thing that can save the situation is if by a miracle Jude and Lola settle their differences but I don't see that happening"Oh dear. Hopefully, these boys will find each other again. They are brothers, they have to. Long live P-Square! May they never break up.


Read President Jonathan's Easter Message To The Nation

published on

Dear Compatriots,

I greet you all, especially our Christian brothers and sisters who are celebrating Easter and commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ today.

As we join Christians in other countries of the world in celebrating Easter this year, I urge all Nigerians to reflect on the significance of its lessons of piety, obedience to higher authorities, self sacrifice for the good of others, redemption, salvation, deliverance, renewal and the ultimate triumph of good over evil.


These lessons of Easter and other injunctions on brotherly love, peaceful co-existence, tolerance, honesty, humility, justice, equity and fairness to all without discrimination contained in the Gospels are of particular importance to us as a nation as we continue to contend with the challenges of nation-building and development.

As our Christian compatriots celebrate the Messiah's   triumph over death and all that it connotes, let us all renew our faith and confidence in our ability as a people to overcome all obstacles, challenges and threats to national progress and well-being, including terrorism and other criminal attacks on our people in some parts of the country.

My belief in our ability to overcome all retrogressive and divisive forces in our midst and build a strong, united and prosperous nation by turning our unique diversity into a source of strength remains unshaken and we will continue to work with all interest groups and stakeholders in the country to achieve the peaceful, secure and politically stable conditions essential for rapid socio-economic development.

In spite of the evil machinations of terrorists, criminals and their collaborators, our Administration remains ardently focused on efforts to successfully execute the Federal Government's Agenda for National Transformation and achieve sustained development.

We have already made notable advances in this regard. As a result of our efforts and those of previous administrations, the Nigeria economy is now the largest in Africa and the 26th largest in the world.

But we cannot afford to rest on our oars. Much remains to be done and we will continue to count on the patriotic support of all Nigerians as we strive to achieve more inclusive economic growth, generate more national wealth and create more employment opportunities to meet the demands of our increasingly youthful population.

I commend the leadership and delegates to the ongoing National Conference, the vast majority of who have shown a patriotic and praiseworthy commitment to national unity, peace and progress built on justice, fairness and equity for all component parts of the country.

As the Conference breaks into committees to continue its deliberations, it remains our hope and expectation that the end result will be meaningful and enduring contributions towards strengthening national unity and fulfilling our collective desire for a better and greater nation.  

Once again, I extend heartfelt commiserations to all the families who have sadly lost loved relatives in recent terrorist attacks.

Our thoughts and sympathies remain with all those who have suffered injuries from the heinous attacks. We  pray for their speedy recovery and shall keep on doing everything possible to assist them with required medical services and material support.

Our Armed Forces and security agencies will continue to do their very best to curb such attacks and restore full security to all parts of our beloved country.

But we must all become more alert and vigilant, and do all that we can to give them the fullest possible assistance, support and cooperation they require to achieve more effective protection of lives and property across the country.

We shall continue to count on your support and prayers for greater peace, harmony, progress and prosperity in Nigeria.

May God Almighty bless our dear nation and guide us, always.

Happy Easter to you all.

Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR
