Advice from Britain's Oldest Married Couple, Married 75 Years - "Do Not Move In Together Too Soon, Argue Lots"

An elderly couple who have just celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary claim regular arguments have helped them stay together.

Joseph Littlewood, 98, and wife Sally, 99, believe marital tiffs help love last - because it allows couples to kiss and make up. The pair met at a dance hall 81 years ago in 1933. They got engaged in 1936 and married in 1939 as World War II broke out - and their relationship is still going strong today, 2014.

The cute couple said:
'The advice I would give to young people getting married these days is to argue lots but always remember to get over it. It is never worth stewing over. People always have arguments, and in 75 years we are going to have had a lot, but the key is to move on.  
When we were young, people just stuck together - back then we had courtship and that

'My Twins are Named after Multi-million Naira Industries' - Femi Ogedengbe Blasts Critics

Nollywood actor/movie producer Femi Ogedengbe practically stunned Nigerians when he announced on Facebook that he had named his twins, born on the 27th May, Nollywood and Hollywood. He received a lot of criticism for doing that but this morning, Femi is hitting back at his critics, saying he has no regrets whatsoever. Because, according to him, the two industries have directly and indirectly influenced him positively, especially in terms of fame and riches.

Femi said:
“Hahahahahahah Nigeria my country! The level of hypocrisy in Nigeria is just too high…..Or how do I explain the attack I and my wife have received on different blogs for adding Nollywood & Hollywood among the names we gave our bundles of Joy : King Praise Micheal Victor Tochukwu Jesuogbo Iyinoluwa Hollywood & Queen Grace

Stella Damasus Says No One Can Shut Her Up, Reacts to Threats Allegedly from the Government


Told y'all yesterday about the attack at Daniel Ademonikan's Abuja home where 12 heavily armed men stormed the home asking for Stella's details. Read here if you missed it. In a new chat with BellaNaija when they called to ask her what was really going on, Stella said all she can say now is no matter what they try to do, they can't stop her from speaking the truth.

Stella told BN:
All I will say is that no matter what anyone tries to do, it will not stop me from speaking the truth and standing up for the rights of women and young girls. 
These are the kind of things that make people scared and run away from standing up for their rights. It’s a pity that we say Nigeria is a democratic country, but where is the

UK-based Nigerian Lesbian, Aderonke Apata Wants to Submit her Sextape to Prevent Being Deported Back to Nigeria

A Nigerian asylum-seeker, Aderonke Apata, is about to send a very personal home video of herself having sex to prove to UK Home Office that she's gay and prevent being deported.

According to IndependentUK, Aderonke feels she has tried everything to persuade the Home Office that she's gay. She’d sent letters from former girlfriends – both in Britain and Nigeria – and supporting statements from friends. But after her claim that she could be killed because of her sexuality if sent back to Nigeria was rejected, she feels there's only one way of providing a judge with irrefutable evidence that she's gay: by sending a very personal home video.

Sitting with her girlfriend, Happiness Agboro, in a bar on Manchester’s Canal Street, Ms Apata, 47, revealed the traumatic ordeal she has experienced:
“I was asked to bring my supporting documents for my judicial review for the court to look at. What evidence do we have to compile apart from letters from people? I knew we
