|TV/Movies / Movie Review: Its Her Day by shosilva: 10:31pm On Sep 27, 2016|
It’s her Day Movie Review.
Mr Bovi Ugboma over-reaches himself to deliver rip-roaring laughter and entertainment in droves in It’s Her Day
A Film is like a building with the story being the foundation on which every other aspect of the filmic production is built. Get the story and its treatment right and you’re already halfway to getting a good Film.
We watched It’s her Day and the story simply blew us away. Technically, it is not high up there. No creative photography or editing. No cutting-edge directorial input that was meant to draw accolades. It was just all about the story, but what a story!
It is, quite enough, a simple story. A Groom, desirous of making a bold statement to his bride and her well-to-do family promises her a fairy tale wedding. Little did he know that he was marrying into a Family of high society Sharks!
The Bride’s family, knowing that all bills was on the Groom, go overboard in their spending with the Groom virtually drowning under a deluge of bills.
To add salt to injury, the Bride’s Family, never believing that the Groom and his family were good enough for them in the first place, adopt a snobbish attitude towards them, going to the extent of trying to dictate the particular type of Best Man they would desire and dress code for the Groom’s Family.
Things come to a head and the frustrated Groom eventually summons the courage to abandon the Bride at the Wedding Altar, of all places!
It was an unmitigated high society wedding disaster and even Linda Ikeji sef carry am.
The layers of comedic action are the ingredients that uplift this Film. A Film should be a reflection of a society. It’s Her Day not only reflects our society but also goes ahead to poke fun at it.

|Nairaland / General / 7 Cities That Might Replace Post-brexit London As Europe’s Financial Capital by shosilva: 5:52am On Jul 18, 2016|
Cities around Europe are getting ready to to take the place of post-Brexit London.
Britain’s vote to leave the European Union rocked has raised concerns about the future of London as the financial and tech capital of Europe.
Many global companies said they might have to move some of their operations away from the British capital to protect their EU status. And cities are already lining up to welcome them.
Frankfurt is eager to welcome bankers fleeing London. The German city is home to the European Central Bank, the Bundesbank, as well as the European Insurance authority.
Under EU rules, banks and insurance companies can operate anywhere across the EU if they establish operations in one of its member states. The city of choice has been London, but Frankfurt hopes it could become the next finance hub after Brexit.
Frankfurt also regularly ends high on quality-of-living rankings. According to Mercer’s 2016 survey, Frankfurt is the 7th top place to live, ahead of London, Paris and New York. The city is also smaller and more affordable than London.

|Nairaland / General / Brexit: Vodafone Considering Leaving The UK by shosilva: 3:09am On Jul 18, 2016|
British telecommunication industry giant Vodafone says it's considering moving its headquarters out of the U.K. following last week's shock referendum result.
The loss of the company, whose stock helps anchor the benchmark FTSE 100, would be a stinging blow for a country that is struggling to come to terms with the economic consequences of a vote to part with its European neighbors.
Vodafone said in a statement that Britain's EU membership has "been an important factor" in its growth. It added that bedrock EU principles including freedom of movement of people, capital and goods are all vital for regional companies......

This is active brain drain in action. 80% of this young guys and gals will end up living and helping to further develop the USA.
Nigeria, meanwhile, would have lost some of its best young brains.
Who gains - USA and the immediate family of these young fellowship winners. Who loses - Nigeria!
Don't blame the Awardees. They'll be fools not to take the opportunity especially when their Country has none to offer. Good luck to you guys as you embark on this life-changing journey.

|Nairaland / General / Britons Banned From Using Social Media In Office! by shosilva: 12:18am On Jan 14, 2016|
Facebook, Whatsapp, Twiiter, Google Chat and other social media Apps all got a kick in the solar plexus today when a Court ruled them illegal to be used during office hours in Britain.
The ruling was from an European Court so it does not affect Britain alone, it also applies to all European Countries that are signatories to the European Convention on Human Rights!

|Nairaland / General / WOW! Chilean Reporter’s Bikini Pulled Down By Wave On LIVE TV by shosilva: 10:26am On Jan 08, 2016|
Braving the cold currents of the Pacific Ocean led to Chilean reporter Bernardita Middleton losing her bikini on live TV after stripping down when dared by the presenters in the studio.
The notoriously nippy waters in the coastal town of Reñaca, Chile, in the northern Valparaiso region, knocked off her bikini after she failed to properly attach the straps before taking a dive under a wave.
Reporting from the beach for the popular Chilean morning show ‘Good Morning Everyone’, Bernardita was dared to enter the water by the presenters.
Happily she treated the viewers to a striptease, taking off her blue dress revealing a turquoise bikini...

Jackson brushed off Trump’s diss at LAX Wednesday.

|Sports / Why Pep Guardiola Should Come To Manchester City by shosilva: 10:51pm On Jan 07, 2016|
Why Pep Guardiola Should Come To Manchester City: He Will Be Given Limitless Resources To Build Super Club In His Image
Pep is one of the last pieces in the jigsaw.
He is the man that can build a team capable of challenging Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich in terms of competing for European honours.
It didn’t take that long for City to dominate the Premier League and win domestic trophies. That was the ‘easy’ part.
We are already, arguably, the most complete side in the Premier League and capable of challenging year after year. Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea fans cannot comfortably say that.
What we are not capable of, however, is building a club that can challenge the elite for European honours.
A club that is genuinely feared by the other European heavyweights. That isn’t something throwing a chequebook at it can solve.

|Celebrities / Headies Awards Should Be Renamed ‘leggings Awards’ – DJ Timmy by shosilva: 3:09am On Jan 04, 2016|
A popular disc jokey, who goes by the name Dj Timmy has reacted to the Headies 2015 awards which has generated a lot of controversies on the social media.
The respected DJ, in an open letter, revealed that the Headies award is not one to be rated high as it breeds bad blood among music artistes and relegates a few others who do not get to win any award.
Read his open letter as obtained by Green News:
When i wrote my first open letter to Headies on December 29, 2013, the majority opinions i got was that i was correct while others felt i was just an “Attention seeker”.
Headies as an award should be credibile and not just over hyped. We have hundreds of award shows every year in Nigeria and they are not as controversial as this one. Headies as an award are still not appreciating certain artiste, producers, entertainers and Dj’s who work 24/7 to make sure they bring out the best. They give us the impression that once you are not nominated or you do not win, you have not started your career.
This is a BIG LIE. Over the years, All Ayo Animashaun and HipTv family have proven is that Money over Integrity and that is why he always ignores the choices of majority of Nigerians or could it be that they innocently don’t even know what they are doing?
I am not here to analyse the faults of headies in full but you can read the other complains on twitter with the hashtag #TheHeadies2015.
Firstly, I noticed your hall was half empty. Your live broadcast that you always brag about had the picture quality of NTA channel 10 and your technical crew were going offline every time things became awkward and they immediately have to switch to “lyrics on the go” to cover up your shame. I watched BET African awards live and MTV and I can see a very huge difference in all aspects. You still have a lot to learn.
Another disturbing fact is that headies as an award is creating bad blood among colleagues in the Nigerian music scene. Headies is the reason why we have not seen collaborations among certain musicians. Tell me why Phyno, Davido, Falz, Solidstar and many other music producers and artiste who have been topping charts this year where not recognized?

|Politics / UNDERCOVER INVESTIGATION: Nigeria’s Port And Custom Service Of ‘bribery And Forg by shosilva: 11:14am On Jan 03, 2016|
For nine straight working days in December, ‘Fisayo Soyombo, editor of TheCable, disguised his appearance – first as a hungry, hapless job seeker; later as a trainee clearing agent; and finally as an intending importer of cars, computers and Italian suits and shoes – to penetrate into the importing and clearing ring at the Nigeria Customs Service.
Presented in this comprehensive reporter’s diary, his findings reveal series of sharp practices involving men of the service, other border and security agencies, the clearing agents, and banks – leading to massive short-changing of government revenue.
They also underline the scale of work required to purify an agency that is arguably the armpit of corruption in the most populous black nation. It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God. Sourced from two different chapters and verses (Mark 10:25 and Matthew 19:24) in the Christians’ holy book, the Bible, this quotation is one of the most popular pastoral tools for summarizing the vanity of wealth – and life.
But nothing better captures the secrecy shrouding business activities at the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) than a parody of this saying: it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than it is for anyone to enter into the Apapa premises of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA).
Before setting out for Apapa, which houses the largest and busiest seaport in Nigeria, and is one of the most horrendous traffic-gridlock zones in the densely populated city of Lagos, I had been warned by everyone who knew something about the ports that I would be unable to enter. Still, on Monday, December 14, 2015, I arrived Apapa in the company of my one-day guide who knew the area so well and graciously offered to help with navigating opening-day impediments.
Much of the first day’s work was to revolve round securing temporary accommodation in Apapa pending the conclusion of the assignment – this didn’t happen, by the way – and general surveying operations around the port
After the failed attempt to secure accommodation, my guide and I proceeded to the Apapa ports, where we were to study the inflow and outflow of articulated vehicles, the conduct of uniformed men, the transactional conversations of clearing agents and the touting drive of document forgers. In three hours, we were done with the last three, and it was time to move closer to the port entrance to get a closer picture of business.
Although we had been informed that this was a period of low business, we counted the entry of at least five articulated vehicles in a minute, translating to an estimated average of 300 vehicles in an hour!
We were standing some 50metres off the gate and had barely been there for five minutes when a policeman walked westward towards our direction. “Yes, what are you doing here?” he says in a brusque, brisk tone. “What exactly do you want”? “We’re waiting for a phone call, sir,” I reply. “Move over there,” he barks. “This is a restricted zone.” Our work was over for the day, apparently; but as we retreated, I looked out for the badge on his uniform. Odion Ohiro, it read.
|Foreign Affairs / Kenyans Slam President Kenyatta For Driving Without Seat Belt (VIDEO) by shosilva: 10:35am On Jan 03, 2016|
Kenyans have expressed anger at President Uhuru Kenyatta after watching a video footage posted online that showed him driving a vehicle without wearing a seat belt.
In the footage, President Kenyatta is seen entering a car and driving to his rural home in Gatundu, Kiambu County, without wearing a seat belt.
The video, which is a promo of an interview with Citizen TV anchor-cum-reporter Jacque Maribe, has been shared widely on social media.
Kenyans were shocked by the President’s poor judgment to drive a vehicle without considering traffic regulations, despite his government’s ongoing road safety campaign by the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA).
|Sports / Ighalo Is Romantic And A Fashion Freak – Wife by shosilva: 9:25am On Jan 03, 2016|
Behind every successful man, there is a woman, so goes a popular saying. Watford striker Odion Ighalo is not an exemption.
Ighalo was the top scorer in English league football in 2015, finishing the calendar year with 30 goals, three goals ahead of Tottenham Hotspurs’ Harry Kane.
The Nigerian helped fire the Hornets into the Premier League in 2015 after an eight-year absence and has continued his fine form in the English top tier, netting 14 times in the 2015/16 campaign to take his total to 30 last year.
His astounding performances has earned him several awards and accolades, the most recent being the inaugural Edo FA awards, where he was named the 2015 Player of The Year (overseas-based) on December 30, 2015 at an elaborate ceremony at the Oba Akenzua Cultural Centre, Benin City, Edo State.
Ighalo couldn’t make the trip from England to Nigeria due to club commitments, but his wife, Sonia, was present at the event to receive the award on his behalf.
Beaming with smiles, Sonia was in ecstatic mood after collecting the award. And she didn’t hide her joy in receiving the award on Ighalo’s behalf.
“It’s a privilege as a wife to receive this award on behalf of my husband and I’m so happy about him winning it. Odion is very happy that he is being appreciated in his home state and he will continue to do his best to project the state in good light,” Sonia, who flew in from London to receive the award said
Sonia has been a staunch supporter of her husband. During the Super Eagles 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Chad in Kaduna, Sonia was in the stands, watching with keen interest.
|Politics / Shocker! George Bush And Condolezza Rice Were Having An Affair At White House by shosilva: 7:53pm On Jan 02, 2016|
Radaronline has come out with a bombshell. President George W. Bush and then Secretary Of State, Condolezza Rice, were not only in the same bed concerning state affairs, they were also cosying up together physically in bed!
In a bombshell exclusive, it was learnt that the FBI was trying to cover up allegations of drug use by former President George W. Bush and the steamy secret affair he had with his Secretary of State.
The scandal erupted on Dec. 6 when a long time White House chef blew the whistle on the presidential hanky-panky in a shocking book.
Radar traveled to New Orleans to track down the author and master chef Ronnie Seaton, who claims the FBI told him to clam up about his scandalous 278-page book, Sir White House Chef.
“The FBI told me not to talk, which I think was kinda weird,” the 60-year-old chef tells Radar. “It’s a freedom of speech issue and I should be able to express myself!”
Seaton, who worked as an on-call White House chef for 32 years, says he got a front row seat to now-69-year-old Bush’s pot smoking and whisky habits that eventually led to the hot and heavy affair with the “extremely intelligent” and “well groomed” Rice.

2016 is going to be a good year.
How do we know? Because we’re mere hours in, and already we have this video of vocal superstar Celine Dion covering vocal superstar Adele‘s hit “Hello.”
Dion sang the tune during her New Year’s Eve concert in Las Vegas, and of course the crowd was delighted as soon as they heard that the cover would be taking place. (Dion immediately managed expectations by informing them that Adele herself wasn’t in the building.)
