Rihanna Look-a-Like Heaping Up Endorsement Deals

A 22-year-old woman who is a dead ringer for pop singer Rihanna is commanding up to $20,000 in product endorsement fees.

According to Mz Shyneka of Word On the Streetz, Andele Lara is paid big bucks by clothing and shoe companies to endorse their products.

The companies, which probably can’t afford the real thing, pay Andele thousands of dollars to endorse their sneakers, mascara and hair products on social media.

“As Rihanna’s career rose, my career rose in a sense because it was like she was getting bigger and I was getting bigger and everyone kept noticing her more,” said Andele.


A 22-year-old Boston woman named Andele Lara, looks very similar to the Barbadian singer. 
Andele tells The Daily Mail during a interview that she first realized she looked like Rihanna when she was in high school. She says that one of her friends pointed out the identical features. 
Andele has never met Rihanna, but did have a small encounter with her. A fan posted a picture on Instagram of Andele with the caption, “Rare pic of Rihanna.” The icon commented saying, “OH?!” Her response sparked a flood of nasty comments being left on Andele’s page, which is now private. 
She does admit that she would love to meet the real Rihanna one day. “I would love to meet RiRi and take a selfie with her!”

Still trying to figure out who I look like....hmmmm! 


Ghanaian Socialite Nabbed With $5M Worth Of Cocaine At Heathrow Airport

A Ghanaian socialite named Nayele Ametefe also known as Ruby Adu-Gyamfi, who is said to be very highly placed in Ghana was arrested at Heathrow Airport, London on November 10th for drug trafficking.

Nayele was arrested shortly after arriving on a flight from Accra, Ghana, carrying 12 kilograms of cocaine worth £3.5million ($5 million) and £6, 063 cash. She was also reported to have been in possession of multiple passports including a Ghanaian passport and an Austrian passport.

She was charged to court the following day for attempting to import a class A drug. She was however remanded in custody until her next appearance at Isleworth Crown Court which is on Thursday, 27th November.

In another twist, Daily Graphic reports that an Assistant Director of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Regional Integration in Ghana, Abiel Ashitey Armah has been arrested over the Nayele Ametefeh cocaine saga.

Two others, Theophilus Kissi of the Research Department who was attached to the VVIP Lounge at the Kotoka International Airport and one Abubakar Ahmed has also been arrested for allegedly aiding Nayele to transport the cocaine.

Things that make you go hmmm.....

See What this Girl Tweeted...Just As Cold As Her Name

Some folks are really mean. How can someone tweet this?! 

She tweeted this after blacks stormed city streets to protest a grand jury's decision not to charge the officer who shot an unarmed black teen. She's been off twitter ever since...she couldn't take the heat!

Sometimes you really wonder what is going on in the world. Terrorists terrorising everyone, now the cops killing all the black folks, just to mention a few....what's going on?

The judgement:

Thousands of people flooded the streets from L.A. to New York late Monday night after a grand jury decided they were not going to indict officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of unarmed 18 year old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, saying that officer Wilson acted 'lawful'.

The jury was of course composed of 12 people; six white men, three white women, two black women and one black man. They met on 25 separate days and heard more than 70 hours of testimony from about 60 witnesses, including three medical examiners and other experts on blood, toxicology and firearms. And decided officer Wilson did nothing wrong by killing a black unarmed teen, shot 6 times.

After the announcement, protesters flooded the streets burning cars, setting buildings on fire, torching police cars, looting shops, flooding highways and causing massive chaos especially in St. Louis and Oakland, California.

Ugandan Pop Star Desire Lucinda Apologises For Leaked Nude Photos

Last Friday a Nigerian Playboy (with a fake Ugandan identity) "leaked" photos of popular Ugandan singer, Desire Luzinda. The embittered ex-boyfriend (Franklin Emuoboh aka Franklin Banguma) has called it "sweet revenge".

Desire following the leaking online of her nude photo last Friday, the singer issued a public apology to her family and fans describing the leaked nude photo as a “moment of madness” to be shared privately with her lover but was betrayed.

She described herself as “a decent person, an industrious woman and a doting mother":

To all my fans in Uganda and all over the world, as you might be aware, there has been a lot of fanfare and discussion in the media and social media about my photos taken in private that were leaked to the public by a jilted lover.

The facts about this matter are that these were photos taken in privacy with someone I loved. In our private moments, we all have our “moments of madness”. The bottom line is that I trusted this person and never hoped that something done in private would find its way to the public domain irrespective of our differences.

I am aware that for many people who looked up to me as a role model, to the fans who adore my music , to the young generation that looks up to artistes like me as a symbol of the importance of grooming and growing talent, these photos must have been an upset.
Lucinda and ex-Lover
I want to sincerely apologise to my mother, to my daughter, to my family, to my friends, my fans and any other people who have been offended by these images. Like I said, this was a breach of trust by someone I loved. I take full responsibility for having lost my mind to take such shameful pics. This person has not only abused that trust but now seeks to drag me down.

Those who have interacted closely with me know I am a decent person, a doting mother and an industrious woman. These images in no way should define who I am.

Let me also thank my numerous fans who have stood by me in this period—asking me to be firm amidst the tempest.

Just to let you know, the responsible authorities are doing everything possible to ensure I get justice. Once again, accept my sincere apologies.

Okay?! This "moment of madness" has now become "lifetime madness"! Girl "lovers" come and go, you are a celebrity and should have been smarter than that. I just hope this isn't a publicity stunt

UK's Auto Giant May Sue Chinese Company For Exact Imitation Of Evogue...Lol!


Saw this and went lol!

UK giant car company Jaguar Land Rover, is furious after a relatively unknown Chinese car company called LandWind,as they unveiled a car that looked almost exactly like the Range Rover E-vogue which at $22,000 cost $48,000 less than the Evogue which is about $70,000. Above is the Evogue and below is the Chinese car. It was launched at a motor show in China last week.

Jaguar Land Rover say they may take legal action against the company. Jaguar Land Rover chief executive Dr Ralf Speth told Autocar magazine:

‘The fact that this kind of copying is ongoing in China is very disappointing. The intellectual property (IP) is owned by Jaguar Land Rover and if you break that IP then you are in breach of international regulations.’

Funny but not funny!

Actress Stephanie Okereke Reacts To Allegations Against Her Brother For Rape

Stephanie Linus has released a statement addressing the rape allegations against her older brother, Daniel Okereke, who was arrested for allegedly raping a UNILAG student named Arinola. She said:

"Rape is Rape, Regardless of Who the Face of the Accused is” - Stephanie Linus
I am distraught and devastated to hear of the recent allegation of rape brought against a relative of mine, Daniel Okereke (my brother).

While it is a very difficult time for me, and my family; I feel the need to make clear my position, lest there be any doubt. Rape is rape, regardless of who the face of the accused is.

Indeed, the irony is not lost on me. I have spent my lifelong career advocating and living my conviction that women around the world should be able to live free of violence, sexual harassment or any form of abuse against their persons. This conviction led me to be involved in numerous initiatives combating violence against women in several countries including the U.S, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

The conviction also led me to place much of my energy on my work with Vesico Vaginal Fistula (VVF), a passion that dates back to my time at the University of Calabar.

As a student, I heard a story about young girls who had been forced into early marriage and were suffering the negative and embarrassing effects of VVF. The story stayed in my consciousness and drove me, for years, to seek ways to raise awareness on the condition; leading to my work with a team of dedicated doctors to carry out repair surgeries for VVF victims across the country; and my self-produced, soon to be released movie, ‘DRY.’

So, again, it is indeed heart breaking for me to receive and deal with news alleging a family member of mine is an alleged perpetrator of sexual violence against a woman. I am devastated.

This case is now in Nigeria’s criminal justice system as the accused awaits arraignment. I have also encouraged and assured the alleged victim of my stance against rape and applaud her for her bravery to upset the culture of silence, in Nigeria; even as I accord deference and patiently wait for the criminal justice system to determine the guilt or innocence of my brother.

For Nigerian press and blogs; I call on you to please report this case in an ethical manner. I am a married woman living my life. The alleged transgression of my relative does not make it mine. The focus should be the impact of rape on the alleged victim, and resources for other alleged victims, not me.

Some members of the press and blogs have turned me into the accuser; using my name for sensational headlines and putting my images, exclusively, in their stories. This is a form of victimization of me as a woman, its unethical and extremely hurtful. I am not the alleged accused.

I therefore please ask all bloggers and the media who have placed my pictures and name to this story to refrain from further using me to sensationalise this story.

I thank my fans, and all well-wishers for your continued support and ask for your continued prayers.

God bless.

Good one.

American Music Awards 2014: Bleona Qereti Has Something To Say...

Tv personality, Bleona Qereti, wore this to the American Music Awards last night.

Sometimes you really begin to wonder what the world and all these award shows are fast becoming. Looks like the more unclad you are, the better dressed you are. Another amazing observation is, while the men wear better suits, jackets....the ladies clothes get skimpier.

My candid advice for the attention seekers, make sure your body is up to the task before you put it on blast!

Pregnant Woman and Partner Caught Having Sex In Hospital Bed While Waiting For Arrival Of Baby

Things that make you go hmmm.....

A heavily pregnant woman and her partner were caught having sex in a hospital bed in the UK while waiting to have their baby induced, Daily Mail reports.

The mother and father were discovered by a cleaner who heard moaning coming from a private room on the maternity ward. The worker told hospital bosses what she had found but was informed there are no rules against having sex on the ward at St Michael's Hospital, in Bristol.

The hospital's policy is for frisky couples to put a 'Do Not Disturb' sign on the door, The Sun reported.

A hospital source said:

'Other patients on the unit heard the commotion and were upset. The cleaner was utterly shocked. She was amazed to be told it was OK. The hospital's advice appears to be just to put a sign up - amazing.'
Like herbal remedies and eating spicy food, sex is said to help induce labour in some cases.

However, NHS advice says:

'You may have heard that certain things can trigger labour, such as herbal supplements and having sex, but there is no evidence that these work.

'Having sex won't cause harm, but you should avoid having sex if your waters have broken as there is an increased risk of infection.'

Seems to me like it was adviced....

Cameroonian Journalist Tweets Reveal That The Chadian President Negotiating For The Release Of The Chibok Girls Is Behind Boko Haram

Nigeria's President, Goodluck Jonathan and Chadian President, Idriss Derby

Cameroonian investigative journalist, Bisong Etahoben, tweeted yesterday that a close confidant of Chadian President Idriss Derby, Mahamat Gnoti, was arrested on Nov. 17th on the Chadian-Sudan border with arms meant for Boko Haram.

Gnoti then claimed that he was sent to procure the arms and deliver it to people in Nigeria by Chadian president himself, Idris Derby. Derby is the same person who tried to negotiate the release of Chibok girls with Boko Haram on behalf of the Nigerian government.

So sad when your "friends" are really your enemies! If you can't create life, why take it?!
