Notorious B.I.G. Autopsy Released, 15 Years After His Death

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office released the autopsy report on Christopher Wallace, aka The Notorious B.I.G. or Biggie Smalls, on Friday, more than 15 years after the rapper was shot to death.

The 23-page report offers fresh details about his death, which remains one of the city’s best-known unsolved homicides.
Wallace, 24, was shot and killed early on March 9, 1997, as he was leaving a music industry party. He was riding in the front passenger seat of a Chevrolet Suburban when another vehicle pulled up beside his and someone opened fire.
Wallace was shot four times, according to the autopsy report.
The fatal bullet entered his right hip and ripped through several organs, including his liver, heart and lung. The other bullets struck Wallace in his left forearm, his back and his left thigh.
He was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he arrived in full cardiac arrest and was pronounced dead shortly after 1 a.m.
At the time of his death, he had no drugs or alcohol in his system. Wallace was 6 feet, 2 inches tall, weighed 395 pounds and had a tattoo on his right forearm that read: “The Lord is My Light and my Salvation …”
His slaying has long stumped investigators.
Los Angeles police and the FBI both looked into the case but made no arrests.
Wallace was killed just six months after his former friend and rap rival Tupac Shakur was gunned down in Las Vegas, leading some to believe both shootings were tied to a so-called rap war between East Coast and West Coast hip-hop artists and their record companies.
Shakur recorded for Marion “Suge” Knight’s Los Angeles-based Death Row Records, while Wallace was signed with New York-based Bad Boy Entertainment.
Shakur’s killing is also unsolved.

Obasanjo, Jonathan Rift Worsens •The Gbenga Daniel Connection


The frosty relationship between President Goodluck Jonathan and former President Olusegun Obasanjo may have worsened as the latter has refused to openly sympathise with the former over the death of his younger brother, Meni Jonathan.

 Meni’s remains are being interred at Otuoke in Bayelsa State on Saturday (today).
Obasanjo is currently in Ghana, where he is monitoring the ongoing presidential election in the West African country.
The former President, who was until April the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, boycotted the last meeting of the board, which was held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The meeting was conveyed to discuss modalities for the election of his successor.
While Obasanjo prefers a former National Chairman of the PDP, Dr. Ahmadu Ali for the top job, Jonathan is rooting for Chief Tony Anenih.
These differences on serious political and inter-personal relationship between both men have made any process aimed at attaining a truce difficult and deepened their enmity.
Besides, investigations by our correspondents showed that the status of a former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, in the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, has aggravated the rift between Jonathan and Obasanjo.

Nelson Mandela Admitted To Hospital

Nelson Mandela
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton meets withNelson Mandela, 94, at his home in Qunu, South Africa on Aug. 6, 2012.
Former South African president Nelson Mandela was admitted to hospital on Saturday for medical tests, although the government said there was no cause for alarm.

A statement from President Jacob Zuma’s office gave no details of the condition of the 94-year-old anti-apartheid leader.
“Former President Mandela will receive medical attention from time to time which is consistent with his age,” the statement said.
“President Zuma assures all that Madiba is doing well and there is no cause for alarm,” it added, referring to Mr. Mandela by his clan name.
Mr. Mandela, who became South Africa’s first black president after the country’s first all-race elections in 1994, was admitted to hospital in February because of abdominal pain but released the following day after a keyhole examination showed there was nothing seriously wrong with him.
He has since spent most of his time in his ancestral home in Qunu, a village in the impoverished Eastern Cape province.
His frail health prevents him from making any public appearances in South Africa, although in the last few months he has continued to receive high-profile visitors, including former U.S. President Bill Clinton.

It started when she was eight. For the next 28 years, Miss Funmi Ayotade lived as a lesbian. It was a journey that took her to the high and mighty. It also left her with permanent scars. In this interview, shares her heart-rending escapades in the world of lesbianism.

How did the journey into lesbianism start for you?

I can remember faintly that when I was four, I started noticing a strange feeling for fellow girls like me. We were in Blackburn, United Kingdom then where I was born. I knew something was just wrong with me. I wasn’t acting like my playmates. I can remember I was always scared of so many things. I was nervous of toys and very afraid whenever they tried to take my picture.

Man Accused Of Killing His Pregnant Lover In Ogun State.


The family of a lady, Gloria Akpan, has accused their daughter’s lover, Ita Eyo, of killing her in his residence in Ayobo area of Ogun State.

Gloria and Eyo both from Akwa Ibom State had been cohabiting since March 2012 before the sad incident occurred on November 3. The lady was six-month pregnant before she died.

A family source, who craved anonymity, said when he spoke to Gloria on Friday, a day before her death, she told him that all was well, adding that it was shocking to learn that she had died the next day.
The source said, “Without seeing any member of the family, that same Saturday, they hurriedly buried her.

Toni Braxton
Singer Toni Braxton has been hospitalized in Los Angeles.

The R&B performer says in a Tweet on Friday that she's been hospitalized because of "minor health issues" related to Lupus. A spokeswoman confirmed the hospitalization but had no other details. "But no worries!," Braxton wrote to fans. "I will be out any day now."
The 45-year-old singer of "Un-break My Heart" revealed two years ago she has Lupus, a potentially deadly autoimmune disease that killed Braxton's uncle. She also suffers from a narrowing of the blood vessels in her heart.
Braxton said in a recent "20/20" interview that doctors told her the Lupus diagnosis meant her performing career would likely be diminished and the disease helped push her into a recent bankruptcy.

Goldie Fights J Martins After He Disrupts Her Video Shoot In SA

There’s serious bad blood right now between two music stars: Goldie and J Martins. It’s a long story, but I’ll try to make it short. Goldie invited J Martins to South Africa in November to appear in the video of a song they did together called Give It To Me. J Martins asked for business class. Goldie said she couldn’t afford it. J Martins agreed to come reluctantly. Then he told Goldie to pick him up at the airport. Goldie sent someone instead. J Martin refused to follow the man Goldie sent to the airport to pick him up, saying he didn’t want to be kidnapped (which makes sense).

J Martins then checked himself into a $700 hotel, refusing to check into the hotel Goldie booked for him. Goldie and other members of her crew then went to J Martins’ hotel to see him but he refused to see them. He said he was tired, and was not feeling well, so couldn’t see anyone. Then the morning of the shoot, J Martins refused to come to set. He asked Goldie and her crew to pay for his hotel accommodation. $700 x 5 nights = $3, 500. Goldie said she couldn’t afford it. After much begging and talks, J Martins agreed to two nights refund which was $1400.

After that was settled, J Martins didn’t show up on set till 3pm that afternoon. When he got on set, he refused to enter the video until they gave him the $1400. Then he complained about the costumes…he refused to do this, refused to do that…he was rude, he was talking on the phone…etc…etc.

Anyway, to cut the long story short, the white guys shooting the video got tired of all the drama and packed their stuff and left without completing the video. J Martins shot some scenes but not all Goldie is said to be pretty angry at J Martins because she lost a lot of money.

My Boobs Are My Selling Point – Nollywood Star, Chiege Alisigwe


Chiege Alisigwe came into limelight after starring alongside Ramsey Nuoah in the blockbuster movie ‘My Love’ in 1998. She has since become one of the most-sought-after actresses in Nollywood. In this interview, the delectable actress talks about her NGO, which she recently set up to cater for the welfare of the less -privileged people in our society as well as her plans to establish a studio among other issues.

You recently set up an NGO. What is it all about?

What I had in mind when I set up my NGO was to use the platform to reach out to the less privileged people in our society. You know, somebody might be looking good but inwardly, he or she has a lot of problems bothering him. So, we really want to see how we can assist them in our own little way.

Have you reconciled with your husband?

I don’t know. I hate talking about my private life. But what I know is that I have a child now.

What Is Wrong With This Picture?

I do not what to say.

Police Arrest Robbers Who Sedate Their Victims With Satchet Water Before Robbing Them In Commercial Buses


Do you accept sachet or bottle water offered by unknown passengers in a commercial bus? Then, you must be careful as some robbery gang have devised this method to rob unsuspecting passengers.

This discovery is coming on the heels of the arrest of five members of a notorious robbery gang by operatives of the Special Anti-robbery Squad, SARS, of the Lagos State Police Command. The gang specialized in drugging unsuspecting passengers in commercial buses before dispossessing them of their valuables,

Unlike their other partners who use their vehicles to perpetrate the heinous crime, the arrested suspects as gathered, would board commercial buses and position themselves strategically to actualize their devilish act.
Their modus oparandi include trailing their targets either from the bank, or public places, right into a commercial bus.

How Do I Tell My Wife that I’m HIV Positive- Please Help Me!!


I recently did a HIV test which was required by my Head Office at work. Due to the nature of my work, it is required every 2 years. I found out three weeks ago that I was HIV+. I went back and took another test just to confirm and it still came back positive.
At the moment, I am just cold, scared and angry. I don’t even know what to do with myself. I have been thinking of jumping off, if you understand what I mean.
I am angry because i feel that I brought it upon myself. I had a fling with one of my coworkers which lasted only for a week. I remember I did not use protection on one of the days.
My wife has been noticing my behavior and I have been ignoring her. I have not summoned up enough courage to tell her the news because I know that she will also be HIV positive.
I have been thinking long and hard on how to break the news to her but the scared part of me is telling me run. I really don’t know what to do. I am just tired.
Please advice me!

He Did Everything To Get My Attention, But Once We Started Dating He Disappeared – Why?


I am writing actually to get you to look into a topic or to give your thought on this situation which I am sure many women may have faced while having relationships with men. The withdrawal…why do men choose to withdraw or give the silent treatment even when things ‘appear’ to be going well in a relationship?
I had a situation where a man I met came on so strong about dating me. I am a believer of being friends with a person to get to know their personality and character first before diving into a relationship. But, then again people wear masks and put on their best behaviors during the initial stage of any encounter or relationship.
This man did everything to get my attention, he was nice and sweet. He wanted to be my man so badly and finally I agreed to dating and a relationship. Shortly after the relationship started, I noticed he was withdrawing. Classic signs; no returning of phone calls or text messages and eventually vanished like a ghost. You guessed it right, he returned at his convenience and made up some really flimsy excuses. I was intuitive enough, followed my instinct and kept him at bay even though he makes every attempt to be close to me.
My question for you is this, why do men do this? Why get into a relationship if you know that you will not follow through. It is insulting and frustrating to have a man plead, beg and do whatever it takes to get into a relationship with you and then vanish just like that for no apparent reason. I will really like to get your thought on this and how to look out for men like this. Thank you.
