Photos: Miss Bumbum Brazil pageant sparks outrage as contestants pose for Last Supper painting

This year's Miss Bumbum Brazil contest has sparked outrage among Christians after the contestants posed for 'the Last Supper' photo in reference to Jesus Christ's last supper with his disciples before he was crucified.

In the outrageous photo, the contestants all wearing lingerie pose on top the 'supper' table and the contestant with the sexiest bum poses in the center as 'Jesus'.

Religious leaders branded the remake of the Da Vinci masterpiece "deeply disrespectful" and even Brazil's religious intolerance commission condemned the picture.

One of the contestants said she regretted posing for the shot and said she had "asked forgiveness from God for a great sin".

Daiana Fegueredo, representing the state of Ceara and chosen to play the role of 'Jesus', said:
"I did the photo because of my contract. But I didn't like it and I wasn't happy about it. You can't play around with the word of God."I completely understand people being angry about it, because even I'm angry and I'm in it. For me it is blasphemy.
"I feel really bad deep inside of me. I'm a practising Catholic. Since I did the photo my heart is tight inside my chest, I can't sleep and I don't stop thinking about it. I've already asked forgiveness from God, and I ask forgiveness from everyone else. We went too far. We were part of a great sin."
Father Clesio Vieira, from the Volta Redonda diocese of Rio de Janeiro, said:
"Everyone's talking about it. It has broken the boundaries of ethics and respect, all in the name of money. This isn't creativity, it's the vulgarisation of the sacred and is deeply disrespectful." More photos...

No overnight success. It took Folorunsho Alakija over 30 years to become one of the most influential women on the continent

Nigerian business tycoon and one of the richest black women in the world, second in Africa, Mrs Folorunsho Alakija with $1.82 billion fortune, shared her most challenging day in business with Peace Hyde for Forbes Africa TV. Bellow are highlights of the interview:

1.1. There are no overnight success stories
It took Alakija just over 30 years to become one of the most influential women on this continent which goes to show that it takes time to achieve success.
2. Take control of your own career!
When Alakija realised that the company she was working with were hiring more people and it would take much longer for her to move up in the organization due to clogs in the system, she decided to quit and move on to a better position. Things only happen when you take control.
3. It Pays to invest in your growth
Sometimes to get to the next level, one has to spend time investing in ones personal development. After quitting her job, Alakija decided to study fashion to learn the trade and get qualified as a designer before becoming one of the leading fashion houses of her time.
4. You need to break out to break even!
Alakija won a fashion competition, which was the beginning of her breakthrough for her fashion label. That competition gave her national recognition and helped her to attract more customers.
5. Be vigilant, you never know when an opportunity is around the corner.
A chance meeting with an old friend on a flight to the UK was all Alkaija needed to start thinking about the oil sector which now accounts for her $1.82 billion fortune. Next time you are in a Buka hut, think consider who might be holding your next big break.
6. No is never good enough!
Alakija initially had a number of rejections when she was looking to break into the competitive industry but each time she did more homework and went right back. Her persistence beat the resistance of the then oil minister who eventually awarded her the oil license.
7. Partnership is Key
As a business owner you may not be able to do everything on your own. Your ability to find the right type of partners to help you achieve your end goal will determine how effective you are as an organization. Alakija found technical partners before applying for her oil license giving her a much stronger chance of succeeding
1.8. Time is an important factor of success
It took Alakija three years to get her oil licence and another three years to get a new set of technical partners to begin work. As an entrepreneur, your ability to succeed sometimes greatly depends on how resilient you are in waiting for your break through.
9. Sometimes a big break will look like a stumbling block
It is not all big breaks that look glamorous. Sometimes a break can be disguised as a barrier. When Alakija was awarded her oil block, it was one of the worst because it was deep offshore and there was no technology that had been developed to explore 5000 feet below sea level. But she still saw the opportunity and overcame the challenges.
10. Always expect the unexpected
After finally securing the oil block and finally reaping the rewards, Alakija had to now fight the government of the day who decided to back into their contract and take 40% of their 60% stake in the oil business. In business it is always prudent to prepare for the worst.
11. Know who your true friends are
When Alakija was in trouble with the government, they went knocking on several doors for help but nobody would help them. According to her, they suddenly became the plague with friends they had known for years all ignoring their phone calls.
12. When you have nothing to lose, choose to fight back.
Alakija and her family felt that they had everything to gain if they fought the government and won. At the time, everybody wrote the company off assuming the worst for the fledgling business. In the end, that risk paid off and they won.
13. You will not win every battle but you will win the war
Alakija’s battle with the government took 12 years and there were a lot of motions that were lost in court but at the end, her tenacity meant that they eventually came out as the victors in this battle.
14. Sign on the dotted line
Alakija had signed a contract with the government allowing them to back into the contract provided certain criteria were met. The government ignored the terms of the contract, which made their acquisition of the oil block void. In business, always have terms agreed and documented to avoid discrepancies.
15.Business has no Gender
Success in business is not the exclusive preserve of any gender but rather hard work and perseverance. Folorunsho Alakija is the only prominent female tycoon in the competitive male dominated oil industry proving that you can achieve anything you put your mind to.

Kenya hold first Mr & Miss albinism pageant

The Kenyan Albinism Society organised the country's first Mr and Miss albinism pageant pageant as part of its tenth anniversary celebrations and in a bid to show the beauty in persons living with albinism as well as to do away with stigma associated with the medical condition.

"There are beautiful albinos who feel good about themselves,” an organiser and also the first Kenyan MP with albinism, Isaac Mwaura, said.The contestants walked the catwalk in different professional outfits to show that they too can be part of the workforce. Jairus Jzay and Loise Lihanda were crowned winners of the contest.

In several countries in southern and eastern Africa, such as Tanzania, Malawi, Burundi and Mozambique, persons with albinism are subjected to numerous attacks. Some even seek their limbs and other parts of their bodies for rituals believed to bring wealth and luck. This type of attack is however rare in Kenya.
