Please read what I just found on the internet, guys.

Why Do People Travel Abroad and then Feel Entitled to Everything?

Hello Laila, please share this on your blog. Forgive me, but this is a rant.
I live in Canada with my family and recently, my husbands relative was granted a study visa. Prior to him getting this visa, we all prayed for him and supported him financially as he was having a rough time in Nigeria. He graduated 7 years ago and hadn't been able to secure a job. He had been praying, fasting and finally God did it. 
Anyway, we agreed to accommodate him for free, to lend a helping hand, but since he has been living with us, it appears that I have misjudged him. 
I have noticed that some people only know how to pray for breakthroughs and to

How impressive is this? 

Caitlyn Jenner was at a shady part of Brooklyn recently for a volunteer job. According to TMZ, it was in the middle of NYC's Pride weekend and Cait took a low-key trip to the city to volunteer with the TransLatina Coalition.

lmao.. Nigerians Go Haywire on Jidenna's IG Page over his Ignorant Comments on Nigeria

Jidenna has entered wahala! What are your thoughts about his controversial statement that light skinned people are more likely to be kidnapped in Nigeria than dark skinned people because they are seen as more valuable.

See the Graphic Photos from Boko Haram's First Beheading Video

Boko Haram has set a terrifying new precedent by releasing its first gruesome video of a beheading since it pledged allegiance to ISIS.

The video which adopts many of the same style-points as the hundreds of barbaric videos released by ISIS over the last year is ten minute-long and begins with what appears to be an intense firefight against Nigerian soldiers.

It then shows them standing proudly next to the corpses of scorched Nigerian troops - and showing off their security badges to the camera. The video ends with the senseless murder of a captured African Union soldier. With a look of true horror on his face, the man kneels in front of three masked Boko Haram fanatics - two of whom point AK47s at his head.

The video then cuts to reveal his decapitated body lying motionless on the floor. See the horrifying photos plus watch the video after the cut. WARNING: It is very, very graphic.

I’m Destined to be a Robber – Teenage Robbery Suspect (Photo)

How do you wake up one morning and realize you were destined to be of all things - a robber?

For two teenagers, Sani Harry and Muhammed Yahaya, who were nabbed by the Kwara State Command of the Nigerian Police Force for allegedly robbing people with a cutlass, becoming robbers was something they had no power to resist.

The suspects, who claimed to be herdsmen and farmers, however, were remorseful enough to warn other youth like themselves to steer clear of robbery and other crimes.

According to 17-year-old Harry, he was destined to be a robber as he could not resist the temptation.
He said:
“It is destiny that made me to start robbing people. The temptation just came in a strong way. I just did it without knowing why I did it. I have never killed anybody. We
