A lot of people laughed hard last year when Jim Iyke stepped out for the AMVCAwards rocking this short white suit. Now, see where it got him - Ebony Magazine's 'What to wear now' list. And his boo thang Nadia Buari is super proud of her man.
I wonder what Jim plans to wear for this year's AMVCAwards. He sure will be targeting an E! Fashion Police mention... lol

Mass killing of school children at the Federal Government College in the Buni Yadi area of Yobe was shrouded in mystery after reports revealed that only male students were killed. It has been learnt, however that the extremists intentionally spared the female students.
According to the officials, female students at the co-ed school were spared – and that the attackers instead told them to go home and get married and to abandon their Western education (Boko Haram – meaning “against Western education”).
It would be recalled that the attackers set a locked dormitory on fire in the early hours of Tuesday. The terrified students escaped through the windows, they were shot and their throats were slit. Some were burned to ashes.The massacre was followed by violent reactions by Nigerians and top politicians, urging the authorities to put an end to bloodshed in the country.

A yet to be identified man on Monday successfully traded a 15-year old boy, Seun Aderinwale, for two bags of rice valued at N20,000 at Igando in Alimosho area of Lagos State. According to eyewitness account, the man, whose address is unknown, went to 4, Ifesowapo Street, Igando, on Monday morning to buy two bags of rice from a shop owned by a woman identified as Iya Ibrahim.
The rice seller was not available at the time but her son, Ibrahim, agreed to the man’s proposal to drop Seun, an Aluminium apprentice, as collateral, in order to collect the two bags of rice and return later to pay. However, when the shop owner returned in the afternoon, she was surprised to see Seun who was dropped there in exchange for the two bags of rice taken away by the unidentified man. When the man failed to return, the 15-year old was held hostage until evening when the pastor of his church, a Celestial Church of Christ around the area, saw him at the shop looking despondent.
When Seun was questioned on how he came about the fraudster, he said he met him casually at Hotel Bus Stop about 300 metres to his residence where a church member had sent him on an errand to play lotto, popularly known as “Baba Ijebu”. Seun said he did not know the man’s house or have other information about him.
The teenager later regained his freedom when the Celestial Church pastor, known simply as Oluso in the neighborhood, settled the matter with Iya Ibrahim, the rice seller. He said the woman should take responsibility for one of the stolen bags of rice while Seun’s father, a co-worker with him in the church, should pay for the other bag of rice when he returned from his trip to Ifo in Ogun State. Seun’s father agreed to pay N10,000 for the bag of rice when he returned from Ifo.
P.M.NEWS learnt that the rice seller agreed to the pastor’s proposal and did not report the matter to the police.
“If I report the incident to the police, I cannot leave the station without spending money. Therefore, it is better for me to accept the proposal by Oluso, the rice seller told residents who gathered in front of her shop to watch the drama.
When Ibrahim was questioned why he allowed such an unusual arrangement, he told residents that the conman asked for two and half bags of rice, adding, “when the motorcycle was about to go with the two bags, I asked for the money but Seun assured me he was coming back for the half bag. He even claimed to be a close relation of the man.”
However, some hours after the man had disappeared and failed to return, Ibrahim said Seun retracted his earlier statement, saying he did not know the man.
Last time during his interview on ChannelsTV show, Rubbing Minds, Timi refused to talk about the wonderful house he gifted his beautiful wife Busola, and mum to his three kids for Valentine. Cos, according to him, he didn't know where bloggers got the idea he bought her a house from. So, I'm thinking they got it on rent.
Well, he just shared these new pictures of himself and son in the same new home. And they look soooo cute.

A 23-year-old man, Christian Samuel, has been remanded in the Ikoyi Prison by an Ebute Meta Magistrate’s Court for allegedly killing his girlfriend, Ijeoma Nwachukwu.
And according to Punch, the police said Samuel forced Ijeoma, 26, who he had been dating for sometime to drink acid while they were together at Cossy-Inn Hotel, Abule-Oshun, Lagos State. 23 years old Samuel had found out Ijeoma got engaged to another man without telling him. He pretended as if nothing happened and invited the deceased to the hotel on January 11, 2014, then allegedly forced her to drink the acid, leading to her death.
It was learnt that Samuel abandoned Ijeoma’s corpse in the hotel and fled. The owner of the hotel, Olusegun Sangojumo, discovered the corpse, but did not report to the police.

The police eventually discovered the corpse and in the course of investigation, rounded up all the suspects.
While Samuel was arraigned for murder, the other three suspects were arraigned and granted bail for accessory after the fact. The matter has been adjourned till April 2, 2014 pending legal advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecution.
Suspended Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor Sanusi Lamido Sanusi has finally sued President Goodluck Jonathan before a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, challenging his suspension from office.
In a suit filed late Monday by some of his lawyers, including Kola Awodein (SAN), Sanusi is urging the court to, among others, restrain the President and two others from giving effect to his purported suspension, pending the determination of his suit.
Also to be restrained are the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and the Inspector General of Police (IGP), sued with the President.
Sanusi is pleading for an order of interlocutory injunction restraining the defendants from obstructing, disturbing, stopping or preventing him in any manner, from performing the functions of his office and enjoying in full, the statutory powers and privileges attached to the office of the governor of the CBN.
He said the interlocutory application he filed with the suit was necessitated by the issues raised in the suit.
Sanusi is of the view that delay could occasion irreparable, serious damage and mischief against him in the exercise of his statutory duties as the CBN Governor. He urged the court to grant the prayers contained in his interlocutory application, on the ground that the President’s alleged unlawful interference with the management and administration of the CBN, unless arrested, posed grave danger to the country’s economy.
He argued that granting his application will encourage parties to maintain the status quo, pending the determination of the substantive case. In a supporting affidavit, Sanusi averred that in the course of his duties as the CBN Governor, that he discovered certain discrepancies in respect of amounts repatriated to the federation account from the proceed of crude oil sales between the period of January, 2012 and July, 2013 and that he expressed concern in respect of the said discrepancies and had cause to inform the National Assembly of the said discrepancies because they affect the revenue of the federation and the national economy.
He stated that the President’s action, in purporting to suspend him from office, is aimed at punishing him for these disclosures.
Sanusi stated that he is challenging the President’s power to suspend him from office, noting that the President did not approach nor obtain the support of the Senate, based on his discussions with several senators, including Senator Bukola Saraki.
“I have been informed, and I verily believe the information given to me by Senator Bukola Saraki to be true and correct that the Senate did not give the President any support for my purported suspension and removal from office as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.”
Sanusi stated that the President’s actions in suspending him from office is contrary to provisions of the Central Bank of Nigeria Act relating to the appointment and removal of the CBN Governor and that his purported suspension amounts to unlawful interference in the administration and management of the apex bank and is illegal, null and void. He urged the court, in the interest of justice, to grant his reliefs.
The suit is yet to be assigned for hearing.
Guys, y'all remember the drama that unfolded last year that had Nollywood actor Solomon Akiyesi publicly embarrased and humiliated beyond imagination by his then pregnant wife, Lilian Akiyesi, right? Solomon was in church to wed another woman when his still legal wife Lilian stormed the venue and unleashed hell. Well, here is an update and this hot gist is courtesy my sweetheart, Stella Dimokokorkus.
According to Stella's insider olofofos, actor and serial husband Solomon Akiyesi recently got the shock of his life when his in-laws arranged a meeting where he thought a reconciliation would be negotiated but instead he was handed the bride price he paid on Lilian, his second wife and the mother of his daughter.
This olofofo source says the meeting which held in Port Harcourt on February 13, 2014 was like a time bomb that almost exploded as Solomon's estranged Father in law told him without mincing words that his daughter was no longer interested in staying married to him and thus they wanted to use the opportunity to return the dowry....and our dear actor, who definitely had no choice, collected and pocketed his money.
Solomon and Lilian also had a registry wedding and Lilian has since filed for divorce.
