A lot of our top music stars are from average homes who made something of themselves with their talent, hard work, started from the bottom with nothing and are today, rich and famous.

Boko Haram returns to Borno highways

Boko Haram insurgents believed to have fled their hideouts following military raids on their camps in Borno State, have renewed attacks on motorists and commuters along major highways, travellers said.
One of the witnesses said the insurgents intercepted a truck carrying food items along Maiduguri-Damaturu highway, as the driver of the vehicle fled when he sighted them.
“Our vehicle almost ran into Boko Haram near Benisheik, but for the alert from a car in front. The driver of the private car had suddenly put his car in reverse and then made a quick U-turn back to Damaturu axis of the road, signaling to our driver to turn back too,” he said.

Stella Damasus Closes Facebook Account

This may be bad news for fans of Stella Damasus, but she did send out this message last weekend, via Instagram, that she will “no longer have a Facebook account”.
Damasus had previously complained that her image was being rubbished, as someone was using her name in the social media to solicit for funds.
“Just to let you know that I am shutting down all my Facebook accounts. I need to protect myself and image the best way I can, as some impersonators have started using my name to collect money from innocent people who want to get into the movie industry. Please, spread the word and let your friends know that after today any Stella Damasus [they see] on Facebook is not me,” she posted.

Olamide denies expecting a baby with longtime girlfriend

So I wrote a story today that Olamide is expecting a baby with his longtime girlfriend, Adebukunmi Aisha Suleiman. Someone in his camp put the story out because I am not the only news source to carry it, but anyway, Olamide has denied that this is true. He took to twitter about an hour ago to lash out at me. See Tweets below...

I feel like one, he's been waiting for the moment to lash out at Which is fine. And two, I also see he's mad that I don't post his songs and videos on my blog. If I'm not posting it, it's because no one is sending to me...I'm a huge fan so.... Oh and love you too, boo! *wink*
