Earlier on today, US rapper Lionel Pickens, better known by his stage name Chinx, was fatally shot while driving through Queens. Mr. Pickens was with a friend in a late-model, silver Porsche when gunfire erupted around 4 a.m., the police said. Bullets pierced the glass and struck Mr. Pickens and his friend, who gave his name to investigators as Antar Aldiadi, 27. Taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, Mr. Pickens died. His friend survived and was in critical condition with two bullet wounds to the back.
Fast forward to some minutes ago, an Instagram user has posted a photo of a bullet riddled car believed to be the rapper’s and captioned it “I got aim.” He And then posted a picture of the alleged murder weapons. See that after the cut. Peopleimmediately tagged the photos to the NYPD and the guy set his IG profile to private.What kind of cruelty is this?

This man is looking so fine. lol. The official portrait of President elect, General Muhammadu Buhari and his Vice, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo have been released by his media team. The release was done today alongside a statement that Buhari is to drop the title General from his name after he is sworn in on May 29.
The one paragraph statement reads:
“From May 29, 2015, the President-elect and Vice-President-elect are to be respectively known and addressed as Muhammadu Buhari, President, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Federal Republic of Nigeria and Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, Vice President, Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Guy Slams Mrs Aisha Buhari for Wanting to Scrap Child Marriage, Says It's Against Their Norms & Culture
Kamil Ahmad-Paki, his Facebook page says he is a 'human rights activist', says Mrs Aisha Buhari is so wrong for wanting to stop child marriage. Cos according to him, this is contrary to Hausa/Fulani norms and culture, and as such, it must remain a futile and unsuccessful assertion. A TILB reader called him out and sent me clips of their chat. Read and see into the minds of some people.
Someone in the comments said child marriage reduces promiscuity. Another said he feels so ashamed that a woman of Aisha's learning, background and privileged union with Gen. Buhari could nurture such an ambition. That shame is on her for her reasoning which is a taboo. That may she never see through in this endeavour bcos it is a plot to deprive people of their fundamental rights. That if he knew this was it, they will never have voted her in.
Another man asked people against child marriage to tell him the precise age at which Mary was betrothed to Joseph and when she gave birth to Jesus (peace b upon him)?
Another man also said:
As a Muslim and as a father, I won't let my daughter meet a boyfriend before she is 18, talk less of a husband because I feel 18 is a proper age for physical and mental maturity but in all honesty, I would rather she was properly educated first because she would be useless in her home and in the society if she has no qualifications.Comments continue after the cut.

Vulnerably beautiful Adokiye Kyrian, peace ambassador, architect, singer and actress, made a big fuss sometime last year, when she revealed to Potpourri that she was still a virgin. Not a big deal, but in this fast and furious era where youngsters want to get high real fast and be done with so much in so little time, it is nothing but a big deal.
Potpourri got talking again with Adokiye on Tuesday where she dropped the bomb about losing her virginity soon. Adokiye said:
“I will let that go soon (meaning her virginity). What’s the point of having all the endowment and not enjoying life as a woman. Plus, people are beginning to call me names, like mumu and all. I have been thinking lately, you know, though my mind is not
The comment definitely got attention of Potpourri who decided to seek the girl out. In a BBM chat with her later on, Potpourri found out that the girl is a Nigerian schooling in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She goes by the name Ify Jacob.
When she was asked if she had ever had any crush on Jim as many girls do, chiq bluntly replied:
There were indications on Saturday that the Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, and his newly-wedded wife, Iara, have postponed their much expected honeymoon till June.
Governor Oshiomhole had on Friday married former Miss Iara Fortes, an ex-model from Cape Verde, at a marriage ceremony witnessed by a large turnout of dignitaries from various sectors of the country and he was expected to proceed on a honeymoon with the new First Lady.
But it was gathered that the couple had placed their honeymoon on hold in order to attend the inauguration ceremony of the President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) scheduled for May 29 in Abuja.
Informed sources disclosed to SUNDAY PUNCH that the new couple might have their honeymoon in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. The source said:
“They are still in Nigeria. They will go for their honeymoon maybe in June.”
Former Governor of Bayelsa State and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Timipre Sylva, in this interview with ADELANI ADEPEGBA of PUNCH, talks about his relationship with the Peoples Democratic Party, President Jonathan and how he betrayed him.
- What is your relationship with President Goodluck Jonathan and Diepreye Alamieyeseigha like?
I would say it’s neither here nor there. Sometimes, you think you are very good friends or brothers with some people, but it turns out that you are not really brothers or friends. That’s the way it has always been. I sometimes feel like the biblical Joseph that was sold by his brothers. That’s actually the way I feel sometimes, when I think about the way I was treated by my own people — the people I call my brothers.
- You sound betrayed.
His younger brother Davido two days ago welcomed his own baby daughter with babymama Sophie Momodu. Adewale says he needs his own soon too.
