King Sunny Ade Speaks On Women.... Meet his Official 7 Wives


Sunday Adeniyi Adegeye is a living legend. Popularly referred to as King Sunny Ade, has spent 40 years of his 66 years on stage doing what he loves best-singing and dancing.

His genre of music is Juju. This is also laced with a dance-inspiring hybrid of western pop and traditional African music with roots in the guitar tradition of Nigeria. He recorded successes as he did in his early 1980s albums and American tours.
The Ondo-State born and his band, African Beats, remain relevant in the society especially among his teeming fans. However, KSA has a passion for women. He has more than seven wives with many children.

I’ve run into plenty of Nigerians that had a British or Schengen or American visa applications denied, for some strange reason, they all still wanted to still leave the country, not like relocate but just go some where for a short holiday. They’ll usually head to a Ghana or Gambia, the more buoyant ones will head to Dubai

PICTURES: 40 Reasons you must visit Dubai

Dubai is one of the emirates that form the UAE (United Arab Emirates). Perhaps the most famous of the seven regions, and all because of two words; eccentricity and luxury. In less than thirty years, Dubai went from being the centenary fishing village to become one of the most distinctive and well-known cities of the planet.
In this collection of images we visit the famous city to understand how is Dubai, luxury and rich eccentrics. Clearly not everyone in the emirate are so rich than the persons you can see bellow, however, the images you see below are reason enough. I hope you will enjoy seeingthese images.

Dubai was built in the desert, hence the palm trees…

The tenure of Local Government chairmen in Lagos State may have run its full course, but the legacies of some of these grassroots leaders especially Ayodeji Joseph, the immediate past Chairman of Apapa Local Government Area, will remain indelible in the minds of the people and annals of their locales.

There are cantankerous and conceited First Ladies. There are also courteous and unassuming First Ladies. Nigeria has them all. It is for the latter virtues that you would not but love the wife of the Lagos State Governor, Dame Abimbola Fashola. Despite her enviable and exalted position, and the resources available to her, one of the most interesting things about Dame Abimbola is that for the past seven and a half years that her husband has been governor, she has never been enmeshed in any controversy of any sort. Neither has she been caught making unguarded statements capable of causing the Babatunde Fashola-administration any unnecessary embarrassment. Aside matters that have to do with kids and women and the general well-being of Lagosians, you would never catch the lovable Lagos First Lady meddling in political matters.

Fejiro Oliver: Frustrated anti-progress blackmailer in journalist garb, by Fortune Uduokhai

When a faceless, jaundiced writer who parades fake name such as Fejiro Oliver clashed with the Niger State Government a couple of months ago, many journalists, especially the upright publishers of the emerging vibrant online media, did not jump into conclusion on the myopic line that ‘Fejiro is their own’ and therefore they must join him in blind fight against his traducer. They treaded cautiously when a dark cloud loomed, bordering on a charge of blackmail and attempt to swindle of a whopping N50 million in order to shield his blackmail sword.
Like a leopard that can never change its colour, before the dust settled on the Niger State-Fejiro saga, the busy finger of this overzealous blackmailing journalist, whose real name is Tega Oghenedoro, and his real place of work is the Nigerian Television Authority, Asaba, Delta State, went again into what he knows how to do best: blackmail, telling obvious lies, mudslinging, combative journalism, showing of sadism and, above all, displaying arrant and shameless ignorance, all of which portrayed him as a street urchin that is not qualified to be called journalist. As is usual with him, he took up his pen and blackmailed responsible publishers, all of who have been editors in various national media establishments before they began to try their hands on the new emerging brand of journalism.
