This will their first continental title, and they will bank $750,000 for becoming champions, while Ghana will receive $400,000 as runners-up for a 2nd time after losing in the 2009 CHAN final. Libya had also lost (7-6 on penalties) to Ghana 32 years ago in the AFCON final.

Toke Makinwa Will Not Change Her Surname To Ayida Cos It Will Be Suicidal For Her Image, Allegedly...
There's gist that OAP Toke Makinwa will not be dropping her maiden surname Makinwa for her husband's surname Ayida anytime soon. Cos according to a close family source:
‘Toke Makinwa is a brand in its formative years; it’s beginning to get followership and recognition. It will be suicidal for her image if she changes the name now because of marriage, so she won’t be changing her surname anytime soon. She remains Miss. Toke Makinwa on paper while the reality outside public is that she’s married’.
Her hubby Mr. Ayida is reportedly okay with that decision too. Source continues:
‘We are not in medieval era anymore, marriage is more than change of surname, Maje is not old-school, and he’s in tune with reality of the present days. He doesn’t mind as long as Toke remains the wife he married’
Forget the Genevieve – Etisalat deal and the new property Omotola just acquired on Bank Anthony road in Ikeja, the two actresses are definitely not smiling as very few acting opportunities have come their way.
According to Obi Emelonye, producer and director of Mirror Boy and Last Flight to Abuja this development is not due to the fault of the actresses rather, they have become victims of their own success.
In an exclusive chat with TheNollywoodReporter.com, Emelonye said:
“Genevieve and Omotola are the two biggest actresses we have in Nollywood, they cannot afford to charge less than their status and that is where the problem comes in. Their charges are probably above what the industry can afford. Their charges are like half of the entire production budget so which producer can afford that?”
Continuing, he said:
“What they can do now as it is with other big stars all over the world, is that they should begin to fund their own productions and act in them, they can act whatever role will enhance their brand, they need to start a production company now, and push themselves because they need to remain relevant and must not be seen as jobless. If corporate bodies perceive them as jobless they won’t want to do business with them, they might even price them cheap.”
It will be recalled that the two acts have not been frequent in movies and the last one Genevieve did, Dr. Bello was a flop at the box office. She was also sparingly used in Half of a Yellow Sun. Omotola has not done any major film in recent times. Her last major movie was Last Flight to Abuja about two years ago. She was however named one of the most influential people in the world by Time Magazine, a mention that made her the most talked about celebrity from Nollywood.

One Nollywood actress who can stand tall without a blister of scandal is Queen Nwokoye. Queen, in a new interview with DailyIndependent, had this to say about how she got to remain scandal- free.
- Why don’t you wear revealing clothes like some of your colleagues in the industry?
- You have somehow managed to stay off scandals.
Before I even start, Happy New Month dearies. Like play, like play we don enter 2nd month of 2014. So how are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions, your New year targets?

Personally, I didn't quite meet my target for January. I have a lot on my plate and it gets soooo crazy at times,
Ladies, if you are not married yet, please never marry for money, never marry a man just because he is very rich. Cos when you do that, you have sold your liberty. And when sh#t starts happening to you, God won't even be there to bail you.
With that said, that doesn't mean if you have paid your dues either and you are now reaping the benefits, we shouldn't celebrate and be inspired from your show off. *lol*
So, to all my fellow married ladies, if your hubby is this boxed up too, or it is your own money, and you have
