Uh oh! Davido's Ex Nish Kards Says She NEVER Slept with Davido; IcePrince's Gf Slams Her on Instagram
Davido now has a new girlfriend Sira. He proudly showed her off on IG and of course a lot of people are happy for him. We also remember his well publicized ex, very pretty Ghanaian model, Nish Kards.

But somehow... her IG page blew up after she made that announcement! And this happened!!! Read it all for yourself below.

Surely any person going to work outside their country is an expatriate? But no, the word exclusively applies to white people.
In the lexicon of human migration there are still hierarchical words, created with the purpose of putting white people above everyone else. One of those remnants is the word “expat”.

Defined that way, you should expect that any person going to work outside of his or her

It was like an epic Hollywood scene. Five young men, dressed in military fatigue uniforms and wielding AK47 automatic rifles, just emerged from the nearby waterway bordering the lagoon along Ikoyi/Lekki bridge.
Their mission was obvious because they started firing from all fronts. It was the peak hour when workers were on their way home.
Pandemonium ensued as people ran helter-skelter. Some motorists on top of the bridge nearly plunged into the river safe for the rails that barricaded them. There was mass race towards the Ikoyi

I have decided to lend my voice to the call for sanctions against Dstv in Nigeria, despite the fact that I have been cautioned by a couple of entertainers that speaking up against the almighty cable network may result in the banning of my works on its network.
Yes, it is true that challenging these multinationals in Nigeria attracts sanctions especially for entertainers, but I have decided to speak up because I am one of the millions of Nigerians affected by any increment in subscription charges.

Shortly after she unveiled the look on her Instagram page, her fans opined that the dress was not appropriate for the occasion.
A fan said, “I wonder if Susan used the mirror before leaving for the event,”
