"Every child at the age of 11 knows who he was. He walked into school yesterday and every child knew who he was.

Controversial entertainer and the self acclaimed "Area Fada", Charly Boy has aired his thoughts on the kind of leader that Nigeria needs. He states that it’s time for the country to have a firm leader who will be a ‘benevolent dictator’.
Nigeria needs the kind of leader that people are afraid of, one that commands tremendous respect, charismatic with a lot of enigmatic swagg. We have had enough of biscuit, baba sala, yahoo.com leaders, we need someone who can whip people back to shape, because many tinz spoil.
Someone who can turn around most of the things that have gone wrong, because right now nobody is afraid of anything, impunity is the order of the day.
This country needs a man who is selfless and ready for the ultimate sacrifice, one who smells different, has the guts and is strong enough to shake Nigeria to its roots, by dealing roughly with some motherf**kers who have messed up this country.
Nigeria doesn’t need a man who is indecisive about things and afraid, she needs a man who is tough enough to confront the wolves. Nigeria needs a benevolent dictator. It’s really time for some a*s kicking. How you see the matter?
How can you be living extravagantly when some church members can’t even afford a meal? That is the height of wickedness. Enough of the deceit, enough of turning the bible upside down to suit people’s ears while they suffer in poverty.

The practice of wearing smelly hairnets, coming to bed without having a bath-immediately after cooking-has been chronicled as some attitudes men find repulsive in ladies-hygiene wise. You are free to point out more-of your observations because today, I am looking at hygiene in men-from a woman’s view point!
It is a mistaken notion when some men carry on as if the issue of hygiene is a sole responsibility of the female folk-because of what they claim is our anatomy. Fact is, any enclosed space (e.g. the armpit, inbetween your legs etc) is bound to have some unfriendly odour (if not utterly offensive) if one does not go the extra mile in caring for such places and so-the practice of wearing briefs (abi na boxers?) for days unwashed is a big no no-hygiene wise. Such should not be worn more than once-assuming the guy is a very neat person!
It beats me why a guy would go through the day’s stress at work, come home, have his dinner, put on his sleep wear/boxers(probably unwashed-for days) and go straight to bed...without having a bath or even brushing his teeth. Yet, when his woman joins him on bed-he would want to be kissed, sucked and probably made love to..and when she faces the wall, claiming tiredness or headache-it becomes that she is doing shakara...it never occurs to some people that some of us still find it difficult to tell a partner that their breath isn’t friendly at all.

Hsueh Jun-Chen, A 22-year-old Taiwanese student, has angrily poured petrol all over his body before burning himself to death after his father asked him to stop playing video game and go to bed.
The TV game addict was reportedly in his room playing Winning Eleven Soccer game at his family home in Fenyuan town, western Taiwan, when father, Liu, told him to go to sleep.
The father thought that was the end of the matter until he could not find his son the following day.He went outside to look for him and found the undergraduate's charred remains about 300 meters away from the house.
A devastated Liu told Daily Mail that he had only asked his son to stop gaming because of his academics.
"I had simply said that he should sleep rather than play because university was starting again after the holidays. He said he would and that's the last time I saw him alive. When I saw that he wasn't in his room the next day, I went into the garage to see if he had gone out on his motorbike. The bike was still there but I noticed that two cans of petrol were missing. That made me feel worried and I began to fear the worst."
Police believe that academic pressures and worries about getting a job after graduation may have contributed to his decision to commit suicide.

Danny Mason, 37, popped outside for a cigarette during a family party when he spotted a man trying to steal a car, and approached him. The car thief obviously is a brutal fighter because he beat the crap out the real life superman. Mason was so battered that his wife fainted on seeing him after the incident.
Mr Mason, who lives in Kidderminster, Worcestershire, said:
“It all happened so quickly that I did not have a chance to think about it. Looking back, I thought I was doing the right thing by speaking to this man, but now I am in so much pain that I cannot sleep or work. Doctors say I may never walk again”He was found slumped unconscious on the ground by horrified family members. Mr Mason was covered in so much blood that his family thought he had been shot.
Mr Mason was taken by ambulance to Royal Preston Hospital before being transferred to the facial injury unit at Royal Bolton Hospital where he was found to have a fractured cheek, a ruptured kidney, broken nose, a cracked spine and cut lip.

IF YOU ARE AT THAT STAGE IN YOUR MARRIAGE, WHERE YOU ARE BEGINNING TO ASK...DID I MARRY THE RIGHT PERSON? You need to read this...
Every relationship has a cycle. In the beginning, you fell in love with your spouse. You anticipated their call, wanted their touch, and liked their idiosyncrasies.
Falling in love with your spouse wasn’t hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didn’t have to DO anything. That’s why it’s called “falling” in love… Because it’s happening to you.
People in love sometimes say, “I was swept off my feet.” Think about the imagery of that expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something came along and happened to you.
Falling in love is easy. It’s a passive and spontaneous experience.
But after a few years of marriage, the euphoria of love fades. It’s the natural cycle of every relationship. Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcomed (when it happens), and your spouse’s idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts.

Good day Laila,
I am in a committed relationship with a man,who is everything to me. Just recently,I realised that he works in the same organisation with someone(a man) that I dated in the past though they are in different departments. The implication of this is that we are bound to be running into the other man(my ex)-every now and then. I am wondering if it’s best for me to open up to my man about my past with the other man or just let things be.

A cleric known as Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh has been arrested and is facing charges of causing grievous bodily harm after being accused of persuading his followers to cut off their private parts. According to the police investigation, About 400 of Singh’s followers cut off their private parts at a hospital run by him.
Singh has previously been questioned over the murder of an investigative journalist and has also been accused of s*xual assault, but has never been charged. Hans Raj Chauhan told police that he cut off his private parts because he thought he will be a social outcast if he refused to carry out the operation required by Singh.
Singh told his followers that only those who are castrated, will be able to find God. Singh’s estimated net worth is $40 million.
A pig has become an overnight super star in China after it escaped from its farm to bow its head in front of a Buddhist temple in what appears to be a prayer pose.
The pig was photographed and videotaped outside the temple in Wenzhou when the animal struck a bowed pose that witnesses said made it appear the pig was praying — although others hypothesized the animal may have been kneeling as a result of a Vitamin E deficiency.
Witnesses said the pig was in the prayer position for a long period of time before a monk arrived and chanted prayer sutras for it. The pig’s prayers seem unlikely to have been answered, as the animal’s owner, identified by the surname Huang, revealed the animal was sent to a slaughterhouse after being recaptured.
