Aki and Pawpaw Visit Delta State Flood Victims on Governor's Invitation

Famous Nollywood actors, Osita Iheme and Chinedu Ikediezie, popularly known as Aki and Paw Paw, were Monday invited to Asaba, the State capital, by the Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan to address the flood victims, as well as encourage them and make them laugh a little.

The Governor also explained his reason for inviting the actors saying;
"I went to the flood victims camp one day and as I walked in, half of the population were watching TV. I tried to attract their attention. Some looked at me and greeted me, but they turned to continue watching the television. When I looked at the television, I saw it was Aki, Paw Paw and Ibu that they were watching. You see, because they were watching Aki, Paw Paw and Ibu, they forgot their pains. For them, these Nollywood actors were helping them to ease their pains. That was why I invited them to go to the different camps as motivational speakers because the victims require a lot of motivation, while they are preparing to go back home.”
How nice and thoughtful.

FG Reopens Third Mainland Bridge Today

The Federal Government will today (Tuesday) reopen the Third Mainland Bridge, Lagos, one week ahead of the scheduled delivery date of November 6, 2012.

The government had partially closed the bridge on July 7 to enable the contractor, Messrs Boroni Prono and Company Limited, to replace eight expansion joints on the bridge for a contract sum of N1bn.

The reopening of the bridge will come as a welcome relief to motorists and commuters, who have had to connect Lagos Island, Victoria Island, Lekki, Ajah and Epe from different parts of the mainland through Western Avenue due to restriction of vehicular movement on the bridge from 12 noon to 12am, while opening for movement to the mainland within the same time.

The R&B singer also gets candid about the assault on Rihanna, saying...
“For me to go through people’s whole opinions changing of me, having to get personal opinion back and having to gain personal success back … It’s not all the way back,” he explained. “I can’t hate people for making judgment on me or making a decision of liking me or not liking me.

Rapper, Drake Finally Graduates from High School, Gives Commencement Speech

After five months of hard work, Drake joined his fellow students at the commencement ceremony celebrating his graduation from high school. With diploma in hand, the Young Money rapper shared life lessons with his peers at Jarvis Collegiate Institute in Toronto.
“I still managed to fight this education system and tell myself that it wasn't for me,” said Drake, who dropped out of high school at 15.“I get why this institution is in place for each and every one of us.”
Drake worked with his teacher Kim Janzen over the summer to complete his studies. 
“What this is about today for all of you is the art of following through. That’s one of the most important life lessons that my uncle every taught me,” said the 26-year-old, whose uncle was in the audience. “I’m so proud of you because there are different ways to follow through, and tonight you followed through with a straight shot and for that, you should give yourself a round of applause.”
Despite his money and success, he still was missing something in his life. 
“I reached a point in my life where I realized there aren't material things that can give me the excitement that I’m looking for,” he shared. “There’s a void in my life that I need to fill and I need to sit and think long and hard what that was. It was the fact that I had left a gaping hole in my story of following through.”

Must Watch Video: Another Community Carries Out Jungle Justice!

Following the 4 unfortunate Uniport students that were lynched and murdered unjustly, Comedian Bovi Ugboma released this video today as a way of letting people know taking laws into their own hands is wrong and also to put a stop to jungle justice.

In his words;
We owe it to ourselves and society as individuals, groups and/or organisations to preach against the growing trend of jungle/mob justice. If we fold our arms and watch, thats akin to throwing stones into a market. One day, it might hit one of our own. This is a non-profit initiative. Please spread the message  
                                                                                              - Bovi
Please Watch and Pass around.
