"Our men must learn that no means no" Toyin Aimakhu speaks on Kemen BBNaija sex scandal

Actress, Toyin Aimakhu took to her Instagram page to speak on Kemen's BBNaija sex scandal. She urged organizers of Big Brother t o use the incident to creat awareness on serial offenses. She wrote;

I want to urge Big Brother Naija to use #Kemen 's, incident to educate about serial offenses. Our men must learn that no means no. Don't imagine a consent you are not given. Don't claim she's leading you on when you are the one that is on. A lady owns her body, she has the right to it, she has the power to give it or not. Don't force yourself on the next woman. Please parents, let's raise better men who will be protectors of women not aggressor. Let's do more to protect women, they make the world better place.

Paris Jackson makes acting debut on drama 'Star'

Paris Jackson makes her TV acting debut on Lee Daniels' Fox drama "Star" airing this Wednesday and new behind-the-scene footage has emerged showing Paris in her role.

The daughter of late music Legend Michael Jackson is playing the role of Rachel Wallace, who Paris describes as a "social media photographer chick who's really into herself. ''She's just the bossiest chick in the world and doesn't care about what anybody thinks."

The 18-year-old revealed that shooting the movie was fun for her and she particularly enjoyed it because everyone was nice and welcomed her.
"Everybody was so nice. The girls are amazing to work with. The second they saw me in hair and makeup, each one of them welcomed me. It was nice being welcomed so quickly," Paris said.
She also spoke about her love for the drama she'll be starring in and how she got the role.
"When I heard about 'Star,' I watched the first couple episode and fell in love," she said in the clip. "I met Lee and he was kind of interested in getting me on the show. This role is really opposite to me and for it being my first on-camera acting, I think it's a good way for me to show my acting capabilities."
Below is the teaser for the movie.

Chrissy Teigen opens up about her Postpartum Depression

Model and mother of one, 31 year old Chrissy Teigen in an essay for Glamour magazine, opened up on her with Post-Partum depression. A condition 1 in 9 women globally suffer after child birth. She talked about how she refused to initially talk about it with anyone, how unhappy she was, how she didn't want to leave the house for any reason, how she dealt with it and finally overcame. Read part of her essay below:

"When Glamour first told me I was going to be on the cover, I was freaking thrilled. Seriously. As a longtime reader, I couldn’t believe it. I’d always assumed that wearing swimsuits (or half a swimsuit) or having the occasional nip slip (or bit slip) wouldn’t make me the go-to choice for a women’s magazine I not only love but respect. Yet here I am! Next they asked me to write an essay. I was super into it, but then cringed every time I opened my laptop. Topics? I quickly realized I have truly talked about everything possible. I guess that’s the dilemma one faces when they…well…can’t shut up. I’ve been a chronic oversharer since birth. So I decided I’d talk about something no one really knows about me, mainly because I just learned about it myself. What is it? I’ll get there.

Let me start here: To a lot of you, I think, I seem like the happiest person on the planet. I have an incredible husband—John and I have been together for over 10 years. He has seen my successes and failures; I’ve seen his. He has seen me at my worst, but I will say I don’t think I have ever seen him at his. He’s exactly as compassionate, patient, loving, and understanding as he seems. And I hate it. OK, I don’t hate it. But it can certainly drive you nuts sometimes when you’re as cynical as I am. If I weren’t me, I would politely excuse myself to make the most epic eye roll of all time if a woman talked to me about her significant other the way I just did to you.
We had our daughter, Luna, who is perfect. She is somehow exactly me, exactly John, and exactly herself. I adore her. I had everything I needed to be happy. And yet, for much of the last year, I felt unhappy. What basically everyone around me—but me—knew up until December was this: I have postpartum depression. How can I feel this way when everything is so great? I’ve had a hard time coming to terms with that, and I hesitated to even talk about this, as everything becomes such a “thing.”
During pregnancy, what I thought were casual comments about IVF turned into headlines about me choosing the sex of my daughter. And I can already envision what will be said about me after this admission. But it’s such a major part of my life and so, so many other women’s lives. It would feel wrong to write anything else. So here goes.

I had such a wonderful, energetic pregnancy. Luna sat inside me like a little cross-legged Buddha facing toward my back for nine months. I never saw her face in a sonogram, just her butt or the back of her feet. Every time we kinnnnd of saw a nose, she would quickly dodge, and I was left guessing again. John, my mom, and my sister were all in the delivery room. John was DJ-ing. Luna, fittingly, popped out to the song “Superfly.” The first lyric is “Darkest of night. With the moon shining bright.” I immediately put her on my chest. And she had a face! I was so happy. And exhausted.
After I had Luna, our home was under construction, so we lived in a rental home, then a hotel, and I blamed whatever stress or detachment or sadness I was feeling at that time on the fact that there were so many odd circumstances. I remember thinking: “Maybe I’ll feel better when we have a home.”
I went back to work on Lip Sync Battle in August, when Luna was four months. The show treated me incredibly well—they put a nursery in my dressing room and blew up photos of Luna and John and my family for my wall. When Luna was on set, they lowered the noise levels. They turned down the air so she wouldn’t be cold. Only the most gentle knocking on the door. Pump breaks. I mean, there was no better place to get to go back to work to.
But I was different than before. Getting out of bed to get to set on time was painful. My lower back throbbed; my ­shoulders—even my wrists—hurt. I didn’t have an appetite. I would go two days without a bite of food, and you know how big of a deal food is for me. One thing that really got me was just how short I was with people.
I would be in my dressing room, sitting in a robe, getting hair and makeup done, and a crew member would knock on the door and ask: “Chrissy, do you know the lyrics to this song?” And I would lose it. Or “Chrissy, do you like these cat ears, or these panda hands?” And I’d be like: “Whatever you want. I don’t care.” They would leave. My eyes would well up and I would burst into tears. My makeup artist would pat them dry and give me a few minutes.
I couldn’t figure out why I was so unhappy. I blamed it on being tired and possibly growing out of the role: “Maybe I’m just not a goofy person anymore. Maybe I’m just supposed to be a mom.”
When I wasn’t in the studio, I never left the house. I mean, never. Not even a tiptoe outside. I’d ask people who came inside why they were wet. Was it raining? How would I know—I had every shade closed. Most days were spent on the exact same spot on the couch and rarely would I muster up the energy to make it upstairs for bed. John would sleep on the couch with me, sometimes four nights in a row. I started keeping robes and comfy clothes in the pantry so I wouldn’t have to go upstairs when John went to work. There was a lot of spontaneous crying.
Anytime I was seen out, it was because I had already had work or a work event that day. Meaning I wouldn’t have to muster up the energy to take a shower, because it was already done. It became the same story every day: Unless I had work, John knew there was not a chance in hell we were going on a date, going to the store, going anywhere. I didn’t have the energy.
Before, when I entered a room I had a presence: head high, shoulders back, big smile. Suddenly I had become this person whose shoulders would cower underneath her chin. I would keep my hands on my belly and try to make myself as small as possible.
During that time my bones hurt to the core. I had to go to the hospital; the back pain was so overwhelming. I felt like I was in an episode of Grey’s Anatomy: These kids were around me, asking questions. Maybe it was a kidney infection? No one could figure it out. I saw rheumatoid doctors for the wrist pain; we thought it might be rheumatoid arthritis. I felt nauseated all the time, so I saw a GI doctor. I wondered: Am I making this all up? Is this pain even real anymore?
By December I had started my second cookbook. With the first, I was in the kitchen the whole time. I stirred every pot, tasted everything. Had genuine excitement for Every. Single. Recipe. This one came at the height of my losing my appetite, and the idea of having to test and taste recipes actually made me vomit. I was still on the couch a lot.

Before the holidays I went to my GP for a physical. John sat next to me. I looked at my doctor, and my eyes welled up because I was so tired of being in pain. Of sleeping on the couch. Of waking up throughout the night. Of throwing up. Of taking things out on the wrong people. Of not enjoying life. Of not seeing my friends. Of not having the energy to take my baby for a stroll. My doctor pulled out a book and started listing symptoms. And I was like, “Yep, yep, yep.” I got my diagnosis: postpartum depression and anxiety. (The anxiety explains some of my physical symptoms.) Read the rest here on Glamour magazine.

Rock 'n' roll legend, Jerry Lewis sues his daughter for 'Abuse'

Rock 'n' roll legend, Jerry Lee Lewis is suing his daughter claiming she abused him for years by giving him drug cocktails and isolating him in a moldy house. His legal documents claim that his daughter, Phoebe, took advantage of him while she managed his career from 2000 to 2012, and schemed to spend his fortune with her husband, Ezekiel Loftin.
He says she gave him a "heavy cocktail of psychotropic drugs" to keep him under her control. According to the documents, Phoebe forced her father to go on grueling tours despite his poor health. Lewis says when he wasn't on the road, she kept him cooped up at home in moldy conditions so bad he had to wear an oxygen mask.

Lewis sued Phoebe's husband earlier this week for allegedly spending at least $5 million of his money on luxury cars, real estate and plastic surgery, but he's now adding his daughter to the suit. He's suing to get his money back, and to block the couple from using his name or likeness.

'Being different means you make the difference'- Justin Timberlake

US singer, Justin Timberlake said this when he spoke at the iHeartRadio Music Awards where he bagged the Song of the Year award for his song, 'Cant stop the feel'. He said:

"I wrote this song because I wanted it to be about inclusion, about being together. If you are black or you are brown or you are gay or you are lesbian or you are trans — or maybe you’re just a sissy singing boy from Tennessee. Anyone that is treating you unkindly, it is only because they are afraid or they have been taught to be afraid of how important you are because being different means you make the difference. So f— ’em.”he said

Open Letter: Dear Yemi Osinbajo; Help End the Genocide in Southern Kaduna

In an open letter written to the Acting President Osinbajo which was signed by F. Kamuru, PhD, MD (President) Danlami Ngboze, MA, PhD Candidate (Secretary General) Saidu John, B. Eng (Financial Secretary) on behalf the people of Southern Kaduna (SOKAD) in the United States and Canada, a plea has been sent to Osinbajo to intervene in the Genocide taking place in Southern Kaduna. Read the letter below:

Your Excellency, Mr Yemi Osibanjo

Intervene: Help End the Genocide in Southern Kaduna

With profound humility and the deepest respect, the people of Southern Kaduna (SOKAD) in the United States and Canada have asked us to reach out to you for help with the protracted ethno-religious cleansing and internal colonization of ethnic and religious minorities in Southern Kaduna State. While we weep for Southern Kaduna, we are on our knees praying for the quick recovery of our President, Muhammadu Buhari: By God’s grace, he will get well and return home.

Mr. Acting President, as you and many Nigerians are aware, the people of Southern Kaduna are engaged in an existential struggle of survival on their own land. Evil men, guided by Islamic religious bigotry, have embarked on a systematic campaign of ethnic cleansing and occupation of the ancestral lands of the indigenous peoples. There has been little effort by the Kaduna State government — past and present — to prevent or end the genocide.
It is clear to us, and many objective observers of events in Southern Kaduna, that the Kaduna State government is either unable or unwilling to end this nightmare. The people of Southern Kaduna have suffered for too long and are beginning to believe that, if the state cannot protect them, they need to protect themselves. But because they are not allowed to arm themselves for self-defence, they live as sitting ducks while the terrorists brutally kill, maim, and rape them with impunity — sometimes under the watchful eyes of security forces. Hundreds of our people have lost their lives as a result. Thousands have been maimed and many thousands more displaced from their communities and farmlands.

Based on the policies the state government has developed and the actions it has taken during these difficult times, we have reluctantly come to the sad conclusion that it will not protect the people of Southern Kaduna. The complicity of the state government in the brutal attacks on our people can be inferred from the following actions:
1. The state has apparently paid money to the terrorists in a misguided and sinister attempt to entice them to end their attacks. The state explained these payments by citing the recommendation of the commission that investigated the post-2011 Kaduna State elections violence. However, the state ignored the commission’s specific recommendation that compensation should be made to all victims. Instead, the state paid money to the terrorists and gave nothing to the victims in Southern Kaduna.
2. Nigerians of goodwill at home and abroad, including stakeholders and keen observers from Southern Kaduna, have made useful recommendations on how to end the ethnic-religious cleansing. In response to those recommendations, the state has intimidated, arrested and imprisoned prominent people from the area who wrote and/or spoke against the killings, and who offered solutions. Notable examples of individuals from the area who have been illegally arrested and imprisoned include Dr. John Danfulani, Mr. Luka Binniyat and Mr. Audu Maikori.
3. The Kaduna State government has neither arrested nor prosecuted any culprit and mastermind behind these heinous crimes against humanity, which has emboldened the terrorists to continue their evil deeds. Instead, the state government has been quick to arrest those who protest the cleansing and those it claims engage in “reprisal” attacks.
4. Without credible justification, the state government has indefinitely closed the only two tertiary institutions of learning in Southern Kaduna. In addition, curfews have been placed on some Local Governments in the area, an action that has not affected the capacity of the attackers to strike at will. In many cases, people confined to their homes have become easy targets of attack. With the curfew in effect, attacks have increased, not decreased. This makes the curfew useless and meaningless.
5. Youths from the affected area courageously trying to protect their communities and thwart impending attacks or protest against the killings have been arrested and jailed by the state; however, not a single Fulani herdsman has been prosecuted. Such selective treatment has emboldened the herdsmen to continue the ethnic cleansing and colonialization rampant in that part of Kaduna State.
Based on the above, we call on the federal government to take over the campaign to secure the communities and protect the people of Southern Kaduna. We also ask that the federal security apparatus not be available for the Kaduna State leadership to use for intimidating the elites and people of Southern Kaduna. Furthermore, we suggest that a comprehensive security policy that would allow the people in the area to arm themselves for self-defence without fear of prosecution.
We thank you for your commitment to serve all Nigerians. We pray for your continued success, even as you continue to move Nigeria forward in your current capacity.

Photos: FG officially announces closure of Abuja airport

The Federal Government has announced the official closure of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport from 12 midnight on Wednesday March 8th.

Ministers of Information and Culture Lai Mohammed, Rotimi Amaechi of Transport and the Minister of state for Aviation, Hadi Sirika, announced the closure at a press conference in Abuja today.
The closure is to enable the government carry out repairs on the runway of the airport. The repairs is meant to last for six weeks. Only one international airline has agreed to use Kaduna airport as an alternative airport proposed by the Federal government for landing.

In the meantime, Managing Director of FAAN, Saleh Dunoma, says the Kaduna airport is ready for international flights.

"All the things we need for international operations are on ground. What is important actually is the safety equipment for the landing of the aircraft. “We have seen the runway is good, the Instrument Landing System (ILS) has been installed and the terminal building is ready. The contractor has been directed by the Acting President to redouble his effort so that the remaining items of work that are remaining should be completed before the commencement of the international operations in Kaduna. I think this is one of the luckiest airports; they have five generators as standby power supply. So we have more than enough" he said
