We Have No Hand In Our Mum’s Death – Psquare React To Accusations Of Sacrificing Mum For Fame


Peter and Paul Okoye, popularly known as Psquare have come out publicly to denied the rumours going around that they used their late mother for money and fame.
Here’s an excerpt of their reaction to the rumour:

How do you feel about your mum’ s death?
We feel so bad to know that our mum is no more. But who are we to question the Almighty God. Traditionally, we are supposed to bury her and not the other way round. It is just that it happened so soon.. Indeed, her death was a big blow to us.

It was rumoured that you people knew what happened to her?
Then, it is too bad to hear that people are accusing us of being responsible for our mum’s death. We are not blaming anybody. People are free to say what they want to say. We begin to wonder whether there is anything that will ever make us to go for the life of our beloved mother.

Genevieve Nnaji To Return Brand New Evogue She Got as Range Rover Ambassador


In June 2012, Nollywood actress Genevieve Nnaji was unveiled as the brand ambassador of Range Rover Evogue and we all heard she got $100, 000 and a brand new Evogue from the deal.
 But new facts have emerged about the endorsement deal and I got this direct from inside sources.
Genevieve was offered one of two deals by Coscharis Motors; 
(1) Take $100, 000 and drive a brand new Evoque for only six months after which she will return it or
 (2) Take $50, 000 and a brand new Evogue valued at over N10million which she can keep.
I heard the actress took the former, (she already has very expensive cars) so will eventually return the SUV.

EXPOSED: How The Presidency Misled The Whole Country, Pronouncing Gov. Danbaba Suntai Dead

A misleading tweet by an official of the Nigerian Presidency helped fueled nationwide speculation Thursday that Governor Danbaba Suntai of Taraba died in a plane crash.

Anxiety had mounted over the fate of the occupants of the ill-fated plane after the story broke that six passengers and crew, including Mr. Suntai, were aboard the small jetliner which crashed Thursday evening close to the NNPC depot in Yola.

“May the soul of the late departed Governor, Danbaba Suntai, of Taraba State rest in peace and may God grant the state peace this trying time,” the Special Assistant to the President on New Media, Reno Omokri, said via his twitter handle, @renoomokri.
