Bishop Oyedepo denies inciting Christians against Muslims

Bishop David Oyedepo, the General Overseer of Winners Chapel,  has denied reports quoting him as inciting Christians against Muslims.

“The message bears no relevance to today’s happenings; not even developments of 2016.
“The reporter(s), either being completely unprofessional, lazy or simply wicked, made the 2015 message look like a 2017 church service message. The trending video is NOT a

See the Lekki gay sex assault skit that has got Nigerians talking

Tony OneWeek slams Chioma Akpotha for criticising Gideon Okeke over Chinwetalu Agu

 Ghen ghen! Nollywood actors are coming for each other's throat over veteran actor Chinwetalu Agu and his vulgar slangs.

First it was Gideon Okeke that slammed him for his vulgar slangs in movies. Then actress Chioma rebuked Gideon for being so disrespectful.



Guess who just joined the drama - comedian Tony One Week. He too has been silently pissed over Chinwetalu's vulgar slangs and has slammed Chioma for rebuking Gideon.

According to Tony, Chinwetalu's slangs are now almost demonic and anyone who supports Chiwetalu Agu's persistent use of vulgar language has little or no moral foundation.

Read his statement below:
NO. IT'S NOT OK AT ALL.  
Like Chief Zebrudaya will say "Fafafaaaaa.... Fowl". I read that Gideon condemned Chiwetalu Agu's vulgarity in movies and actress Chioma rebuked Gideon. And I ask: For what? 
The young man simply stated the very obvious. Famous actor Chiwetalu Agu's lines can be very irritating. Truth be told. D guy can talk nonsense. 
And overtime, his nonsense has moved from being funny to annoyingly irresponsible. Its

UPDATE: Runtown's alleged romance with BadGuy Toba's fiancee Nana

The internet has been buzzing with the news that Runtown allegedly slept with his promoter BadGuy Toba's fiancee, Nana.

Runtown's team has denied the story, saying they don't know where this gist is coming from. Toba himself has been promoting Runtown's February 12th concert on his social media pages for the past 1 hour.


Nigeria’s sex toy market booms despite recession

In the midst of the biting economic crisis facing many Nigerians, forcing many to go as far as committing suicide, a sub-sector of the Nigerian economy is booming.

That sector is the sex toy market.


In a society where people can hardly speak openly about sexual problems, Saturday PUNCH’s investigation shows that some vendors sell sex toys worth millions of naira every month.

A sex therapist and prominent sex toy vendor, Mrs. Iheoma Obibi, explained that contemporary Nigerians are gradually coming out of some sort of “sexual darkness” and this is creating a boom in the market with an attendant influx of fake sex toys.

For the last six and half years, Kemi Fawole, a certified sex therapist, has been dealing in adult products including sex toys. She told Saturday PUNCH that she sells at least N7m worth of sex toys

Lady blasts married men who refuse to get vasectomy so that wife's body can rest

Katherine Johnson is furious that men never consider getting a vasectomy when they want to do family planning with their wives.



According to her:
I know someone who has had two ceseareans and yet her husband refuses to get vasectomy because he heard it was painful. 
IUDs, birth control and getting tubal ligations often have terrible and painful side effects for women. Uterine and breast cancer is being linked to birth control and hormonal therapies. 
Why is family planning all about the woman's body? You men make babies too.
