"I guard my private affairs with my life" – Mode 9 on why he's super secretive

Have you ever wondered why the public knows next to NOTHING about the private life of award winning Nigerian rapper, Mode 9?

The 41 year old veteran rapper has given reasons why his life is kept away from the social media and ‘prying’ public, adding that he guards his private affairs with his life.

Speaking with the Punch, the Hip hop star said,
“I am not going to answer personal questions and if you notice my modus operandi, I guard my personal life with my life. I tell my family members to shy away from the press.

“My interviews are about my works; I drop an album and I want you to buy it. I don’t want people to know about my personal life, because I am an artiste and not a celebrity. I don’t do music to be famous. Everybody has a reason behind their action and I do music because I am good at it.

“Why do I need to be famous? It is a lie that the person in my life may feel bad that I don’t talk about her during interviews. If your wife works in a bank and you are an artiste, you don’t go to her bank and sit down.
“Likewise an entertainer, your spouse may come for a few shows but not every one of them because she knows you would not give her all your attention. Some people like to put their family in the limelight like the Kardashians but others don’t because they are private people and the fans need to respect that fact.
“I follow rappers like KRS One in America and I have never woken up one day to find out who his wife is. I don’t care about any other thing but his music because I am a fan of his music.
“There are some people that are just too nosy and want to know everything about a person. You cannot know everything about me. I am from a different era, and in my era, we only follow the music and ignore every other thing,” the award winning rapper added.

See the unique fish-shaped coffin Akwa Ibom man was buried in (pics)

According to Essien Ndueso, the Special Assistant to the Akwa-Ibom state Governor on Media, an Akwa-Ibom man opted to "swim to eternal glory' in a fish shaped casket.

Could it be that the man loved eating fish, or he was a fisherman or came from the great 'Iyak' family?
I witnessed this scene on Nwaniba road this morning around St Luke's Hospital.

Note, i didnt say the man turned into a fish o, i only saw a fishlike casket.. perhaps my friend Uwemedimoh Umanah who owns a fish farm and also loves fisherman soup can explain this better why a man would choose to swim to eternal glory.
Happy weekend folks

Guys, we have an urgent letter from a drunk in love blog reader

A reader, Tochi, is drunk in love with a blog reader he connected with on the blog. Sadly, she just cut off talking with him because of his perceived 'unseriousness'. Our Romeo reader thus wants us to post this letter for him so that his Orente can see how much she means to him and re-establish contact.

He calls her 'Orente' because he does not even know her real name or have her picture. He also mentioned she is an active blog commenter so she will definitely see this open letter because he is ready to drop everything he is doing to come over to her base to meet her.

So, Orente, this is for you.
Please I want to pass a plea message to someone dearest to me.

"You're a white man, you don't get to define what racism is." Chimamanda Adichie shuts down white man

During BBC's Late Night Show hosted by Emily Maitlis, the question that dominated the segment was "Is Donald Trump racist?"

Nigerian award winning novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie had a feisty clash with her co-guest, Editor in-chief of The American Spectator, R Emmett Tyrrel.

While Tyrrel was giving reasons why Donald Trump cannot be regarded as a racist, despite the statements he made during his campaign train and the fact that white supremacist group Ku Klux Klan (KKK) publicly endorsed him, Chimamanda cut him off with 'You are a white man and you don't get to define what racism is."

Tyrrel is shocked to his bones. Very interesting 'match up'. Watch the video below

ABS reacts to ex-Miss Anambra's allegations: "You're a liar & you were conned because of greed"

Abia State Broadcasting Service (ABS) director, Mr Uche Nworah has reacted to Miss Chidinma Okeke's allegations that she was pressured into making the now infamous sex video by organisers of the pageant. Miss Okeke had, in an interview with Nation alleged that the organisers were behind the blackmail video.

In his statement, he says Miss Okeke is lying, everything that happened during her reign were all contractually stipulated, and she may have fallen victim to con men who tricked her into believing that she would win if she made a sex video. He also added she is a pawn in a 'larger politically motivated conspiracy.'

There is an Igbo saying that the more you repeat a lie, at some point people may begin to believe that it is the truth.

Lesbian sex video: Chidinma Okeke finally opens up on sex scandal

Since the story of the sex video involving former Miss Anambra, Chidinma Okeke, broke a few weeks ago, several groups and individuals have come forward with different versions of what transpired between the embattled 20-year-old beauty queen and the organisers of the pageant. But after weeks of remaining incommunicado, Miss Okeke has finally broken her silence.

In an exclusive interview with The Nation, she debunked claims that she was a lesbian, saying her life might no longer be in danger, adding that her traducers were no longer threatening her life. She also said it was the organisers themselves who persuaded her to make the video, and the faces behind her agonizing period would be revealed soon.

Her side of the story:
“Early last year, the ABS advertised for the pageant. I heard of it and went to make enquiry. My roommate was also interested, but one of the organisers told me to apply.

Happy belated birthday to this beautiful Lailan, Florence!!

A very happy birthday to a very dear Lailan, Florence.

She has a message for everyone:
My birthday was 3 days ago but I couldn't celebrate the way I wanted because of work but I still thank God for all the blessings, because only He has done the impossible for me and my family. 

And to all the November born in the house, I love you and and pray for many more blessed years on us all. Amen.
