Faces of the fleeing members of a kidnap gang that connived with an evil nanny, Funmilayo Adeyemi to abduct three Orekoya kids and others in Lagos have been unveiled. They are two brothers identified as Rasheed and Hakeem Kareem.
The nanny, who abducted three children from the Orekoya family home in Surulere area of Lagos on April 10 within 24 hours after she was employed as a housemaid, claimed that she was pushed into the act by her husband, Rasheed Kareem, pictured above.

Hajiya Talatu, pictured above, believes that what a man can do, a woman can do also. So she's started a trek from Kaduna to Abuja to celebrate Buhari's victory.
She’s here! Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed their baby girl at 8:34am London time on Saturday, May 2, and it was only a mere few hours after that that the public (and her brother!) got introduced to the new princess. More pics after the cut.
This is a lady practically everyone knows but I bet you didn't know Judge Judy makes over $900,000 (N176m) a work day, for a total annual salary of $47 Million (N9.2billion) a year. She is considered the queen of daytime television.
Judy works 52 work days a year, meaning she ONLY works once a week. The most amazing part? The judge, real name Judith Susan Sheindlin, is 72 years old and got her big TV break in 1996 - placing her at 53. At the time, she was a family court judge who had a reputation for her quick-fire comebacks and low tolerance BS - which would land her on TV.
It's never too late to blow up and get paid! #NoExcuses #YouHaveTheSame24HoursInADayAsJudgeJudy
[PS- Judy's longtime balliff, Petri Hawkins-Byrd, has refused to reveal his salary, but the Brooklyn-born balliff is currently one of the highest paid in the world!]

The moment came as news of the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's second child was announced by Kensington Palace. The newborn, a little princess, made her entrance this morning at 8.34am following a speedy three-hour labour. The couple emerged shortly after news of the royal

I have been everywhere. I only reduced the numbers of films I featured in and concentrated more on soap operas. And that was for two years. I have also been working on my talk show that would soon hit television screen.
- You joined the industry as a spinster. Would you say this affected your love life?

I have known this guy since 2007, when I was in my first year in the University. Then he was posted to manage one of their company's branch in the same town that I did my NYSC. We started a relationship.
Barely 3 months into the relationship, he got another posting to Onitsha. But asked me to hold on for him, promising that nothing would ever change what we share, and that once he is settled in Onitsha- I would start visiting.
We continued with the relationship but after visiting him a couple of times, things changed. He stopped communicating and so many other changes followed suit. We gave each other break for like 2 years. Only for him to suddenly ask me to come visit him one

Popular Nollywood actor Yul Edochie, is currently seeing the other side of fame as a gay stalker is currently disrupting his peace of mind. Last month, Yul, the son of veteran actor, Pete Edochie, posted on his social media pages that a gay man was stalking him. Only for weeks later, the gay guy Steve released explosive chats and photos on IG insisting Yul was his partner.
In an exclusive chat with Saturday Beats, Yul narrated how the ordeal started and escalated. He said:
“This guy contacted me through Facebook and told me he was a homosexual. I told him that I was not gay and a few weeks later, I started getting calls from a Canadian number.
When I first picked his call, he told me that his name is Stephen Ugochukwu and he was the one that reached me via Facebook. He told me that he had some friends in Nollywood that could get him any number he wanted.
Shortly after, he started calling me very often to the extent that I started blocking all his
Ladies and gentlemen, you are welcome to the new game in town. For better or for worse, our music “industry” is embracing a new form of art. The focus has shifted almost entirely from making music to something else. Now the transition is finally complete and the sync word here is LIE.
In Nigeria today, every artist needs a “lying” platform – or three, to reach their target audience. Years back, radio used to be the dominant “platform” for breaking new artists, you may say it is still important, but the radio is certainly no longer the only game in town. It is becoming simply too limited, too expensive and too difficult to control to be the sole platform.
A better and surer way to expose the artist to the public has been discovered. Now the

Fun-loving, smart and playful, 12-year-old David Olupitan is a walking miracle. For the parents of the boy, Afolabi and Tonye, the events of Monday, April 20 and 21, 2015 could only have ended the way it did as a result of God’s intervention.
Early morning on Tuesday, April 21, 2015, a broadcast was circulating on Twitter, calling for any information on the missing boy. We reported the story here.
“David Olupitan was abducted last night at his residence at Mile 2. Any information about him, please contact 0802****406,” the broadcast read.
Coming just six days after the return of the three children of Mr. and Mrs. Leke Orekoya, who were abducted by their new nanny at Surulere, Lagos but released after a ransom was paid, this kind of broadcast only amplified the apprehension which gripped the Olupitans when their son merely stepped out of the door and disappeared about 10pm on April 20.
But by noon the following day (April 21), Olupitan strolled back into his parents home at the Amuwo Odofin Housing Estate at Mile 2, Lagos. The story he told shocked everyone.
