Shortly after their bitter separation, Nick Cannon erased his ex-wife Mariah Carey’s name from his back with a bird in flight above a cross tattoo. However, turns out Nick wasn't satisfied at all.
Cos yesterday in Covina California, the media mogul hit up a tattoo parlor and invested 30 painful hours, according to TMZ, getting additional pictures added to his bird and cross cover up. The new tat features a cherub on each side of the cross (representing his kids). And a text below that reads, "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do."
Cannon's business partner, Pep Williams, chronicled the process in photographs, which will appear in Urban Ink magazine later this month. See more pics after the cut.
A touching, heart melting video of an interview with Nigerian soldiers actively engaged in the fight against Boko Haram has been released.
The video which was recorded on the 10th of March, 2015 and released yesterday shows our gallant troops sharing their experiences so far and once again stating their passion and willingness to do everything they have to do to rid Nigeria of Boko Haram. They are not scared to die, they are determined to wipe Boko Haram out!!
One of the brave heroes, Private Jeremiah, had this to say in the video which you'll find after the cut:

It’s actually their fifth marriage anniversary and it all seems like yesterday. A few of us (close friends of the couple) were treated to a very private dinner and it was laughter galore when the husband of my lady said he had a confession to make. His confession is that whenever his woman has to travel by air, he finds himself praying that she ends up seating beside a female. He said that it tortures his mind to imagine his woman seating beside a man…all because of how they (the couple) met. His wife has serious phobia for flying (like Laila) and on the day they met, he happened to be the gentle man that was seated beside her-whose hand she was holding all through the flight. He(trying to put up a brave face) kept giving her a re-assuring squeeze on the hand, occasionally giving her a light pat on the back-anything to make her feel less tensed. When the aircraft finally landed-they exchanged ‘contact details’ and the rest is… why we were at that gathering. This man needs to Google himself.
A friend has been missing in action on Facebook, I thought it was due to her impending ‘wedding ceremony’ but I still sought to know (via inbox) her reasons and she told me that her husband to be made it clear that he is not comfortable with her still being on Facebook, talk less of continuing with what he calls her noise making on facebook-for which most guys in her friends’ list respond…it did not matter that it was on Facebook that he actually met her.
Legal practitioner Mrs May Agbamuche-Mbu was at TY Bello's place yesterday to enjoy the afternoon with TY and her now big chubby boys. See how fast kids grow!

When you're a child, she walks before you to set an example. When you're a teenager, she walks behind you to catch you should you fall. When you're an adult, she walks beside you so that as two-friends you can enjoy life together!
Mothers hold their children's hands for a moment and their hearts for a lifetime. No gift to your mum can ever equal her gift to you ~ Life! Treasure every single moment you have with her and love her like she loves you!
On this note, guys, here's me wishing a very Happy Mother’s Day to our sweetest mothers, all TILB mums, mums to be and every woman who has ever loved, nurtured and helped a child find his way! You don't have to go through childbirth to qualify being called a mother. You guys are soooo special!! You guys are our heroes!!
Fifteen-year-old Sarah Ibikunle, a fried fish hawker, who was killed by a stray bullet around the Lekki area of Lagos State on Thursday during a bank robbery, had an ambition to become a lawyer.
The deceased’s aunt, who identified herself as Mrs. Omolafe, told SUNDAY PUNCH on Saturday that Ibikunle was eager to study Law after her secondary education, adding that she was abandoned by her mother when she was two years old.
Ibikunle, who lived with her aunt on Babalola Close in the area, was brutally killed on Thursday by a gang of robbers, who stormed a branch of FCMB on Admiralty Way, Lekki Phase 1, on the fateful day.
