|Celebrities / "If You're In Nollywood To Sell Your Body, You Won't Last" - Ebube Nwagbo by ogedanny: 11:00pm On Jan 14|
The actress turned producer has shared her thought about the current perception on a number of issues in Nollywood.
One of them is the recent exploration of the industry as a platform for prostitution and here is what she said in a chat with Potpourri:
“Well, I don’t know about the naughty girls, everybody has her own side of the story, so I’m going to go with what I know.
The industry is a big place, everybody comes from different places, different life backgrounds, and different stories. At the end of the day we don’t know who is here to do the right thing. If you’re here for the wrong reasons then you’re not going to last, and that’s just the truth.
So, everybody I’ve come across is all here for a reason, so I don’t know about the prostitutes or the naughty girls invading Nollywood”,

|Celebrities / Actress Ibinabo Fiberesima Is Now A Single Mum Again, Marriage Crashed by ogedanny: 4:38pm On Jan 13|
Barely 24 hours after we got the gist about Tonto Dikeh's marriage, another gossip reaching us reveals that Actress Ibinabo's marriage to Uche Egbuka has crashed. This actually happened sometimes last year but the duo has been kept the sad new out of social media.
The whole saga came to light this morning after Ibinabo hinted that her marriage to Uche is over.
As culled from Playground.ng:
"“If I told you that I think of you everyday would you believe me? Yes You. All of you who have refused to leave my side even as the devil got restless with the storm in life. You who have shown how thick blood can be by being truly supportive FAMILY. Be it nuclear or extended. You who have crushed the fakeness in friendships and stayed with your love for me in the darkest of times as amazing FRIENDS. Wether old or new. And the adorable you who puts meaning into being a FAN and have tirelessly protected me with prayers and well wishes. Both in our home country and overseas. Everyday my mind and heart meets deep gratitude over the individual and collective roles God has used you all to play in my life. All who know me would find this easy to believe since there is no ceasing of praises to God from my lips for the power of my support system for I have not known life to be as daunting as the last couple of years have shown me. The last year in particular has severally presented survival as a questionable option. Giving me struggles that seemed impossible to deal with, fading my strength to keep going by the minute feeding my fears and insecurities with worries that come to steal joy. From the shock of a 3 time presence of lumps in the breast to surgeries fighting for my life and the pain of a dissolution of a bond I hoped to keep with a life time partner and the re-emergence of singleness. From the tension of awaiting a judges pronouncement to the horror of walking into prison over a cross accidentally aquired and carried for so long. Tell me how could I have survived the year without you guys? I think about it every day and everyday my love for God and good hearted men rise but today the 13th of January it hits it’s peak and my joy officially knows no bounds as God has kept me alive despite all and led me to witness yet another birthday with the people I love. So do please as you read this, see how happy I feel to have you and to be here with you. To have God and to be assured that his blessings are here to stay."

|Business / Looking For The Best Nigeria Bank For A Domiciliary Account? Read This by ogedanny: 6:21am On Jan 06|
This article will help you spot best bank for a domiciliary account in Nigeria with 6 useful guides to compare the banks you want to open an account with.
Owning a domiciliary account with a Nigerian bank is not an option again, it's a necessity for someone that wants to manage and protect the value of cash in his/her disposal.
I have already shared tips on how to open an account with all the Nigerians alongside basic requirements you need to have before your account officer can proceed with the domiciliary account opening procedures. I also went ahead to give reasons you should own a domiciliary account; cost savings when paying online, exchange rate gain and access to offshore investment opportunities.
For a new starter looking for the best bank for a domiciliary account in Nigeria, here are basic tips on how to compare FCMB, First Bank, GTBank, Access, Ecobank, Unity, UBA, Wema, Sterling, Diamond, Stanbic IBTC, Fidelity, Zenith Bank, Union and Heritage Bank.
1. Check Monthly Fees: When you go to the bank to withdraw from your domiciliary account at the counter, you will be charged for withdrawer (depending on the amount and whether you used a counter cheque or your own chequebook). Ask your account officer the bank charges on withdrawing, ATM maintenance fees, cheque slip charges and other sub-charges in order not be taken unawares. Two days before I wrote this article, my bank deducted $10 from my account as an annual account maintenance fee and I was wondering how they ae maintaining account until I approached my account officer.
2. Minimum Requirements; Before opening a domiciliary account with a bank, compare what the requirements are across selected banks, while some will ask you to deposit a minimum of $100, utility bills, passports, two referees with current accounts, others may be higher.
3. Transaction Limits: Inasmuch as a domiciliary account allows you to make purchases and pay a merchant directly, CBN is still beaming its searchlight on foreign currency transactions, money laundry and so on, and as such, there could be some restrictions on your domiciliary account transactions. A few years ago, CBN mandated all domiciliary account withdrawal to be paid in Naira using official exchange rate and other time, they restricted foreign account transfers to $10,000. These are some of the ways your use of dom account could be limited but you still need to compare how individual banks transactions limit are so you can settle for the institution with flexible policy.
4. ATM Charges: Have you used the debit or credit card on your domiciliary account to withdraw from an ATM machine? I tried it during an emergency and was amazed at the exchange rate my bank applied, it was over N100 lower than what I would have sold the currency per dollar at the black market. You need to compare inter-bank exchange rate on AbokiFX.
5. Mobile and Internet Banking; You may not be free to walk into a bank to carry out transactions on your domiciliary account every time but with mobile banking app on your smartphone, you can easily check balance, transfer fund, view on incoming flows real time and monitor your account history. Compare features available and how fast mobile applications for your banking services will be across some selected banks so you don't experience network issues; though, it could occur but shouldn't be frequently as this could be frustrating.
6. Security: This is the most crucial of all these tips mentioned here. Find a bank that sends security alert and tips to its customers on a weekly or monthly basis, this will help you know the method scammers are using to access users account online. That doesn't mean you should relent and leave the security of your account to your bank, update yourself and subscribe to some internet banking security blog for a more useful guide.

|Business / Profitable Online Business Ideas For Stay At Home Mums In Nigeria by ogedanny: 12:44pm On Jan 05|
This article focuses on the best business ideas for stay at home mums in Nigeria with a practical guide on how to get started now with what you have and become successful online.
2016 was a year of massive retrenchment, a lot of companies across top industries, even the one we thought were resistance to the crisis, shed staff in their thousands in order to save cost and remain profitable. Women workers weren't spared either, a lot of them were laid off, some asked to resign as their services were no longer needed. What this means is that the number of women at home right now has increased and there is no sign that the figure (which is not known) is going down soon, the economy is rough now, exchange rate is high, cost of doing business is Nigeria is even alarming, and income from the man alone can't even sustain the family.
Being a stay-at-home mum or full-time housewife comes with its frustration, if you are idle, but that does not necessarily translate to laziness, besides aside from the job-loss mentioned earlier, some women could be at home for other reasons; parenting is one of them, raising a child requires a lot of energy, attention and no one wants to take the risk of employing a nanny to do that. Besides, the way and manner you train a child determines how he/she will live (Proverb 22:6). I know a mum that resigned from a high-paying telecom job to raise her children and give them full attention.

|Business / How To Make Dollars In Nigeria In 2017 by ogedanny: 8:18pm On Dec 31, 2016|
If you are looking for a guide on how to make dollars in Nigeria, here is my unbias analysis of reasons you should do that now and my 3 tips to get started.
You will agree with me that Nigerians are currently experiencing a hard time as prices of almost everything have gone beyond the roof with no assurance that it will reverse anytime soon.
As SaharaReporters puts it "Nigeria's economy is in crisis. The naira has fallen over 50% in the last year alone. Oil revenues, the mainstay of Nigeria’s foreign earnings are at their lowest in the last two decades."
An ordinary man who is earning N100,000 monthly can't maintain the standard of living he enjoyed 5-7 years back or even have at least N20,000 to save in a bank account for future planning. No thanks, to the inflation rate reported to have touched an all-time high of 18%.
Let's do a simple calculation:
As at when I wrote this article, you could buy a bag of rice for N20,000 against N10,000 price level between 2010-2013, a surge by 100% caused by rising importation cost.
For someone earning N100,000 within those periods, that means, one could be left with N90,000 for other personal or household expenses. But now what happens? that net income has reduced by 11% to N80,000.
Hold on a bit! let's extend our bag of rice to other expenses like daily transport to work, shopping, etc, what do you think will be left after incurring all these expenses? absolutely nothing.
The Big Question?
Will this trend continue? Going by past trend, prices are not showing any sign of reversal as evident in the US/NGN exchange rate.

|Investment / The 2 Best Short Term Investment Opportunites In Nigeria Right Now by ogedanny: 1:15pm On Dec 19, 2016|
This is a typical question a mid-level income earner sent to my mail on the best short term investment opportunities in Nigeria :
I have N100,000 that I need to invest without much exposure to risk but want to make more than bank annual savings return, where can I get a higher return on a short term, say 6-months - 1 year?
I am not surprised if a lot of people with more cash are asking and looking for answers to this question. Why? We are in an eventful period where saving money in a bank no longer pays, not because of the interest return but the rate at which the Naira loses value is alarming. You will also agree with me that what one could buy with N10,000 in 2012, one can't afford that same value with N20,000, that's how inflation will wipe out the real value of N100,000 and leave you with the normal value.
Another better place we no longer trust is the Nigeria stock market. Personally, I still believe this is the best financial market one can invest in only if you know how to spot a great company with profit potential and are willing to hold your portfolio between 3 - 5 years.
In an unpredictable market like Nigeria, where do you think one can safely invest their money, whether N50,000, N100,000 or N1,000,000, at little or no risk while being assured that their money is not going to be tied up for a long time, let's say 3-6 months?
A typical short term investment opportunity (unlike long term that last for several years or even decades) is expected to yield return and can be turned to cash in several months or one year.
When I say return, what specific figure am I talking about? This is a big question one need to answer so you don't get greedy and decide to leave your investment for more returns, after all, the future is not certain, you have to be prudent and disciplined in your finance.
In the investment and finance world, there two types of return, positive and negative return.
When you earn a return that is less than the rate prices go up (inflation), you have a negative return while the reverse is a positive return. Let me explain further,
Let me explain further, the average inflation rate in Nigeria for an 11-month period in 2016 is currently at 14.13 percent (source: tradingeconomics.com) with recent month figure reported at 18 percent (November 2016). Also, the CBN interest rate was increased to 14 percent in July 2016, a second hike for the year after the apex bank abandoned the fixed exchange rate to allow market forces drive dollar to Nair exchange rate.
If you had invested N100,000 in a short term market that earns 14% interest while the inflation rate is at 18%, that's a negative return of -4% which would have been a positive return of +4% inflation rate is 12%. As at January, when inflation figure was 9.6%, such return was not bad for me, that's because CBN interest rate (which is the estimated return on money market securities) was around 11-12%.
Before I share the best place to put your money, I want to tell you where not to invest your money if you need the money in 3, 6 months or less than a year; stock market
This can be individual stocks, or ETFs, even if a particular stock has recently spiked by 50% than it was last week, it's not worth it.
If you are considering investment in stock with a spare money you can follow my strategy on how to find stocks before they rise again.
