Check out what Jim Iyke said about his cute son


 
Jim Iyke has just shared some really cute photos of his newborn son, Dubem Harvis and he also share his experience as a father.

Read his fatherhood experience below:
Son, A few weeks ago I recall kissing your mom’s sweaty brows as I encouraged Her to push and push harder intermittently. I recall her growing weaker by the minute, her fingers clutching my shoulders in a death grip, her intense green eyes staring deep into my core with that singular
resolve only women in labor possess. 

I asked Doc Crawford for the honor of pulling you out of your mom which she granted without wasting a heartbeat and also gave me the charge of cutting the
umbilical cord. You see against every ethos of her practice she sensed a higher purpose beyond this realm; a symbolic need for me to perform this final task to weld you and I, father and son, into one
single entity. I have a propensity for nicknames son.

  I’ve pretty much covertly or overtly nicknamed everything in my life. Your mom is Super girl. Well now Superwoman. I promise you by no stretch is her nickname far fetched. She’s the combination of great looks, brains, grace and sheer guts! She’s got more balls let alone mental strength, than most men I know; present company included. I’ll save the story of her commitment and dedication on this journey for perhaps another day lol. 

I don’t know where our path will take us tomorrow but it had to be her. It was predestined to be. She’s taken to motherhood like fish to water. I’m indebted for life sweetheart. The finest poets and wordsmiths has written all there is to write about a father’s love for a son. My oratorical or literal prowess can never match theirs no matter how hard I try now or later. But no one alive or dead can or will match what I hold in my heart. 

My propensity and strength is in my heart son, always have been. Many times when events and words fail me my heart lifts me with the weight of its content. You see I have witnessed Jehovah’s greatest Miracle. My love for you is in the moment that froze as I held you in my hands for the first time and I thought my heart had stopped beating. It’s in the pride as people swoon over you in public places, gushing about how utterly beautiful you are. I’ve googled everything from how to change diapers to how to soothe you to sleep. Yes we have become apt and true disciples of Google lol.

Why I Would Rather MarryA White Man- JulietIbrahim


Juliet Ibrahim has explained why she would rather marry a white man.In a recent interview, the actress said

Friends of these men even jump into the equation—hastily labeling all actresses as wh*res based on what they’ve read online. And some of the men I have met actually get cold feet because of such unfounded speculations,”

According to her, she is not over, dating a black man as long as she can find one who understands her career and lifestyle.She continued

For me it’s not about the colour of a man’s skin but his mind. The reason why I think a white man will work for me is because their mentality fits my lifestyle and my career. But if I meet a black man who sits well with my wants and expectations, I will jump for it.”

In his words;
I just did it because I was in the moment,”. “I wasn’t thinking like, ‘Oh man, I gotta get my brand up in Nigeria. Not to say that’s not important. I’m super-honored to be on that song.” And then Drake revealed that he first heard the song through Skepta and that Ojuelegba was so remarkable it forced him.

Hollywood actress Jessa Duggar: SLAMMED For Requesting Money From Fans


Earlier today, we reported tha t Jill and Jessa Duggar specials will air on TLC sometime in the very near future. Between returning to television, spending most of her life starring in a reality series, and
cashing in on speaking engagements and other side projects, you would thing that Jessa and her husband Ben Seewald would be pretty comfortable financially, right? Well, apparently not, as the first-time parents- to-be have listed their address and "favorite stores" on several websites with instructions on how fans can send gifts or cash donations. 

In Touch is reporting that the information has been deleted from Duggar-friendly sites such as Ashley's Reality Round-Up after fans expressed their distaste with the crass cash-grab in various comment boards. “Love the family, but I don’t think it’s right to give an address for gifts and gift cards,” wrote one fan under a post requesting cash donations. “I may be wrong but TLC and their personal appearances [probably] pay them well…donate to a charity in their name.”

 Several other fans echoed the sentiment, and the post was deleted just hours later. Initially, Jessa was applauded for continuing to engage with fans (Earlier today she asked the her social media followers to guess her baby's gender.), despite the fact that she's no longer enjoying those fat 19 Kids and Counting paychecks.

Now, it seems that she's been asking those same fans for handouts and planning her eventual return to TLC all the while. Jessa has stated that she forgives Josh Duggar for his various sexual indiscretions, but she and her new family are clearly still feeling the fallout from the scandal that ended their once wildly-popular reality series.

Today's generation by Lepacious Bose


Comedienne Lepacious Bose took to Instagram to share her thoughts concerning this Generation’s obsession with the internet.

According to her: I have been lamenting about this for so loooooong when I was a teenager every
girl my age read novels, in fact it was a competition to know the fastest reader and how many novels you have read. We would read on the bus, in the toilet, while eating etc now I meet young girls I NEVER EVER see them reading, they don’t even hold novels to show off, or pretend. No! they are on social media, they know who is dating who and who is wearing what.

 Don’t know the name of their
governor but they know the name of Kanye West’s mum, don’t know the capital of katsina state but they know Kim Kardashian’s home address even the color of her toilet paint. Ask them what is happening in Syria now, they don’t know but they know Jay Z and BeyoncĂ© had a fight this morning and why, in fact they know the details of Emeka Ike:s divorce more than Emeka and his wife, which
state in Nigeria is preparing for elections right now?

 No they don’t know that but they can tell you where Tiwa Savage is, what she’s wearing and even what she ate for dinner. Oh no, our generation is
not living up to expectation I know, but the next generation after us? They are a disaster waiting to happen….. Yet again i quote Asa, “whose responsible for what we teach our children? Is it the Internet or stars on television”? So sad..

‘National Assembly crisis may sink APC‘


The  Primate of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Most Revd. Nicholas Okoh, has cautioned the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to resolve their internal crisis before it inevitably destroys the party. Primate Okoh gave the advice in Ondo State when the Bishop of Akure Diocese of the Anglican Church, Rt. Revd. Simeon Borokini, led a delegation to welcome him at Ilara-Mokin, emphasising that the crisis is adversely affecting the nation. 

He expressed his condemnation of corruption in the country, enjoining all and sundry to harmonise all efforts towards stamping out the hydra-headed monster from the Nigerian polity. According to him: “Corruption is bad, it is a bad thing because it makes it possible for some people to take more than their due share of what should go round the people.” Okoh, who is also the chairman of the
Christian Pilgrims Commission, enjoined all Nigerians to “join hands to say that corruption is bad and ensure that we reduce it to the barest minimum. Whichever we look at it: corruption, indiscipline, impunity are all factors that contribute to our degeneration and lack of progress.”

British Born NigerianActor, David OyelowoUrges Christians Not toAbandon Hollywood

British-born Nigerian actor, David Oyelowo in an interview with Culture blogger, Tyler Huckabee, has revealed Christians should work on developing their creativity and craftsmanship before engaging culture with The Gospel.

He said,
We all know from a biblical point of view of what God does in the secret place before you’re then put out in public,’ he says. ‘We see that with Moses, we see that with David, we see that with Joseph,
and with Jesus Himself. I feel that’s been my journey as an actor.’” “Something else you need to know about Oyelowo: He is wildly, plainly, unapologetically Christian. He’s obsessed
with Jesus. You can hardly get him to talk about anything else.” “‘I’m definitely an example of God using the foolish things of this world to confound the wise,’ he says. ‘I know I’ve been given these opportunities for a reason. I’ve been given a degree of notoriety. I can now try to marry Hollywood’s desire to get to a faith-based audience, and try to get us as people of faith wanting to have films made that have broader reach and have high production value.’” “This is something Oyelowo is passionate about: raising the standard for faith- based movies.”

Oyelowo argues that too many past films have ignored the heart of scripture, choosing instead to focus on action sequences or epic elements.  In his opinion,

“‘You look at the parable of the talents: God wants us to take our talents and increase them and make good on the investment He has made in us, and I take that very seriously.’” “‘I know that I am not owed the right to make movies. I know God has given me this privileged position and I have to work dog-hard as an actor to make the films the best they can be. I think that if you’re doing that, then you can really start doing some damage’.

You Wore What YourDaughter Should HaveWorn-Funke AdesiyanBlasts Omotola

Nollywood actress and politician, Funke Adesiyan, has defended her friend and colleague, Bimbo Thomas, who was criticized few days ago for wearing a swimsuit to a beach in Miami.
 
According to her, Omotola Ekeinde, who should have been lambasted for wearing an outfit her daughter should have worn, was praised by the media. Funke said ,

I have read different blogs call my friend Bimbo Thomas different names for wearing a swimsuit to a beach, will she wear ‘agbada’ or what? I am confused, Omotola Jalade, a mother of four, wore a
crop top, a style she should have left to her daughter and hypocrites hailed her as stunning. What could be more inappropriate?
 

“We will do better by being real. Real time, real people. Bimbo is a beautiful person inside out. Sometimes her level of confidence almost intimidate me (believe me, not many people can intimidate me). “Leave celebrities alone. We are humans too. We deserve every bit of happiness that comes our way. As for me, I make myself happy irrespective of how they make people feel. I am me and very
original at it. Bimbo, please rock on and post more amazing pictures from your holiday.”

How to prepare bitterleaf soup


Bitterleaf soup – Ofe onugbu (as the Igbos like to call it) is very delicious and also comes third on my list of Nigerian popular soups. This soup is popular because it could be made in more than five different ways and can also be refrigerated for a very long time (even though I recommend two weeks at most for most Naija soups) I like to add a handful of uziza leaves as you would find in the image below.

Here is a guide to making the much talked about “ofe onugbu”. I stated  that most Nigerian soups
are named after the leaves or the thickener used in making them. This soup can be made with either egusi (melon seeds), ede (cocoa yam), ofor, achi or even ogbono. Yes, But the most popular of them
all is the cocoa yam and bitter leaves.

How to prepare Bitterleaf Soup (Ofe
Onugbu)
Bitter leaf soup, like most other Nigerian soups is named after the particular leaf which is used in preparing it. But of course you need to wash this leaf to remove at least ninety percent of the bitter taste, just so you don’t end up with a very bitter soup. Ingredients For making Bitterleaf Soup This would serve about ten person person or more depending on stomach size and all. You are free to increase the size of the ingredients if you want to serve a larger number of people. You can also refrigerate the remainder in case you have a smaller family.

Ingredients For Nigerian Bitter Leaf Soup

2kg Meat of choice (beef, chicken, pork, turkey)
 Bitter leaf (wash to desire)
 Half cup of ground Crayfish
 Maggi or knorr seasoning (3 cubes
 Ogiri (a product of castor seeds)(optional)
 Dry fish (2 medium sizes)
 Stock fish head (1 big size)
 Palm oil (about 25cl)
 Salt and pepper to taste.
 Cocoa-yam (pounded)
 
The bitter leave soup takes almost the same process as the making of uha soup, as a matter of fact, one pot of soup could be cooked up to the point of adding the leaves then you divide it to add uha to one and bitter leaf to the other. It is better and more hygienic to wash the leaves yourself, it is a bit of time consuming but the result is worth the effort. This is possible if you live in Nigeria and can find them in your garden. But you can also get the “already made” from any market in Nigeria.

Bitter Leaf Soup Preparation
To soften the leaves and further remove the bitter taste, it is advisable to boil alone in ordinary water for 10 to 15 minutes, most people like to add a little quantity of edible potash to hasten this process but I highly advise against it. My reason being that this catalyst (potash) tend to affect the entire soup in a slightly negative way. If you still want to add potash, it will completely wash off the bitter taste and soften the leaves in less than 3 minutes of boiling (the reason most people like using it), but then you would want to boil again alone and wash thoroughly with just water to remove every trace of the potash. Parboil meat with every necessary ingredients, add the (hot-water) washed dry fish, stock fish
and cook until it is tender, add more water then add palm oil, ground crayfish, pepper, maggi seasoning, salt and pepper to taste. Stir and allow boiling.
 
At this point it should give a good soupy taste (even though it would be watery). Then add the pounded cocoa yam as you can find in the video below (at this point you can add the ground egusi if you choose to make bitter leaf soup with egusi), also add the ogiri now. Cook till the cocoa yam dissolves, (this would likely take about ten minutes) then add the bitter leaves, stir, taste, add more salt if necessary then cook for three to two minutes and you are done with the making of Nigerian Bitter Leaf Soup (Ofe Onugbu) Either of these five can go along with it – Eba, Fufu, Semo, Wheat or pounded yam
