Update On The £3,000 UK Visa Bond - FG Warns British Government Of Retaliation

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Olugbenga Ashiru (L), British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Dr. Andrew Pocock
The Federal Government has issued a warning to the British government that it would opt for a retaliatory measure if its proposed £3,000 visa bond is implemented. Nigeria was said to have made this known during a private meeting between Foreign Affairs Minister, Olugbenga Ashiru and British High Commissioner, Andrew Pocock, in Abuja yesterday, Tuesday.

The Federal Government summoned Pocock over the policy which it said was capable of harming the existing cordial relationship between the two countries. Nigeria is one of the six countries whose nationals would be required to pay the £3,000 bond under a proposed policy that will take effect in November. The others are India, Bangledish, Ghana, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

It was gathered that Pocock  admitted at the meeting with Ashiru that the UK  planned to introduce the financial bond as a way of tackling abuse in the immigration system but added that no final decision has been made.

Ashiru, who was said to have recalled the days when nationals of Commonwealth traveled freely to the UK and other member states, expressed displeasure over the policy which he described as not only “discriminatory but capable of undermining the spirit of the Commonwealth family.” He asked him to think about the implications a retaliatory measure would have on the two countries. The minister stressed that Nigeria might also impose £3,000 visa bond on British nationals coming into the country too.

(Ringing the bell and shouting) Round 2 Yo! Rihanna has replied Liz Jones, writer for Dailymail who released a lengthy article about Rihanna being a toxic role model to her young fans, disgusted at her weed smoking, boob-exposing and more. Incase you missed it read it HERE.

As earlier predicted, Rihanna didn't hold back as replied Liz with a few insults of her own. Read what she posted on Instagram below...
LOL!!!! My money got a bad habit of pissing people off!! If you sincerely wanna help little girls more than their own parents do, here’s a toxic tip: don’t be amateur with your articles, you sound bitter!

LOL! Smart: KimYe Send Fake Baby Photo Of North To Friends

Kim played a real joke on her friends by sending out fake pics (above photos) of her new born baby. It turns out she wanted to see who her real friends are and also to see who would be the first to try and sell them. Lmao, she was so right because the photo got out, someone did try selling it for money.

Nice one Kim, very clever.. Here's how TMZ is reporting it;
Kim felt people in her world were going to hawk baby photos, so she wanted to catch the culprits quickly.  We're told Kim hatched a plan and sent a half-dozen of her "friends" pictures of a baby she claimed was North West -- but we're told it was an impostor infant. Sure enough someone came along and tried selling us this pic. 
At least they know who to trust now...

Interesting Piece: I Wish Rihanna Will Stop Infecting Our High Streets With Her Tattoos, Fake Nails, Hair And Bogus Bad-Ass Shenanigans - Writer, Liz Jones

In the south of France, two weeks after the funeral, swigging champagne on board a yacht. I was taught never to eat before swimming but she seems to think it's fine to be off your head in the waterRihanna in Amsterdam this week with two giant spliff. Her albums should have a government health warning
Writer for Dailymail, Liz Jones criticizes Rihanna in her write up, she pens her views about the platinum singer on how young girls look up to her as a role model and will want to follow in her toxic steps. Read the article below...

The first time I met Rihanna, the pop princess was seated next to Vogue editor Anna Wintour wearing a demure dress, with her hair in ringlets, for all the world as though she was Shirley Temple.
She sipped at her flute of champagne throughout dinner and clearly had one thing in mind: appearing on the cover of American Vogue (she got it, too, in November last year) and possibly a high-end fashion advertising campaign of the kind Ms Wintour can facilitate.

The second encounter I had with her was during London Fashion Week last February. Rihanna came down the catwalk at the end of the presentation of her first collection for teen label River Island, for which she was reportedly paid £800,000.

She looked pretty. She wasn’t exposing any under-boob. She certainly wasn’t pretending to ram a jewelled microphone into her nether regions, as she has been doing on stage of late. Her teenage female fans queued around the block that night to catch a glimpse of their idol, who has sold more than 100 million records around the world.

Rotimi with her baby
Rotimi with her baby boy 
Last week Wednesday, news went viral on social networks that 22-year-old, Oyinlola Rotimi a 400-level student of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, gave birth to a baby inside one of the toilets in her hostel in attempt to kill her new born.

Rotimi who is studying Agricultural Extension and Rural Sociology was found in one of the toilets in Moremi Hall, her hall of residence by two cleaners who hurriedly rushed her and the new born to the institution’s Health Center. 

Rotimi, who was discharged from the hospital on Friday,  narrated what actually happened saying she was not in any way trying to kill her baby, the cleaners that helped her out also defended her... Read what she told PUNCH below...

“Why would I flush or kill my baby after going through the pains of carrying him for about good nine months? I am not heartless and I thank God for my life and the safe delivery. I know God has the best plan for me and my baby.  

I seriously appreciate the cleaners for their assistance because I got here (health centre) before I understood everything that happened to me. I am happy that I am alive and my baby is alive too. I’m also using this opportunity to thank the VC, the doctors and nurses, my lecturers and everybody because they all stood by me. They all became my father, my mother and everything to me.  

“Right now, I can call myself a celebrity and definitely I’m going to be greater than a celebrity. My baby too is going to be great. Look at the circumstance that surrounds his birth, just some days old, he is already all over in the news around the world and everybody is happy to see him or hear about his story.  He will surely go beyond where I am now. He has turned me into a kind of celebrity. ”

Rapper, Fat Joe Sentenced To Four Months In Federal Prison For Tax Evasion

The rapper and entrepreneur was today sentenced to four months in Federal prison for not paying his taxes on nearly $3 million in income between 2007 - 2010 totaling a tax loss of $718,038. 

Apart from the sentence he also paid a $15,000 fine and got one year of supervised release after his time.

The platinum-selling rapper, whose real name is Joseph Cartagena, apologized to his family, friends and fans before U.S. Magistrate Judge Cathy Waldor handed down the sentence.

Cartagena, 42, admitted last December that he stiffed the government and later blamed his problems on “fancy guys in bow ties” who were supposed to keep watch over his finances. However, he took responsibility and said he would pay back what he owed.

Fat Joe is the latest hip-hop star to be sentenced for tax evasion. Ja Rule received 28 months behind bars, while Lauryn Hill was sentenced to three months.

Why can't these artists just pay their taxes on time, they get sentenced and even pay more than they are supposed to at the end.

Kanye West Calls Kim His True Love, Talks About His Sex Tape, Porn Addiction And More In W Magazine

Kanye West The Transformer: Kanye is photographed in an artsy shoot by Nick Knight for the W interview (Right)
Kanye West revealed a lot in this exclusive interview with W magazine. Spending days with the magazine's writer, Christopher Bagley, he opens up about everything from baby mama Kim Kardashian (including her fashion sense and those famous curves) to his obsession with pornography, why he almost released a sex tape of himself last year and even lets the reporter listen in during a tense, awkward moment with Kardashian's momager Jenner.

Read the excerpts below....

On whether he masterminded Kim's fashion/makeover as a designer himself;
“Nobody can tell my girl what to do, she just needed to be given some platforms of information to work from. Since virtually everything Kardashian wears is instantly broadcast around the globe, one beautiful thing is that as she discovers it, the world discovers it. For her to take that risk in front of the world, it just shows you how much she loves me. And how much she actually loves the opportunity to learn. You got, like, a million companies saying, ‘This is impacting your brand! This is impacting your fans! And blah blah blah.’ But she still sees this light of beauty.”

On Making appearances on Keeping Up With the Kardashians
“Oh, that’s just all for love. It’s simply that. At a certain point, or always, love is more important than any branding, or any set of cool people, or attempting to impress anyone. Because true love is just the way you feel. Some intellectual ambivalence clearly remains, however. Thoughts and feelings can disagree sometimes”
