Mikel Obi Accuses Iran Of Parking the Bus


John Obi Mikel has accused Iran of parking the bus after Nigeria drew 0-0 with the World Cup minnows in their World Cup opener on Monday.

In a dire affair that produced the first goalless draw of the competition, the Super Eagles struggled for any sort of attacking fluency, with their star men anonymous. Mikel, who operated in an unfamiliar No.10 role, in stark contrast to his deep-lying midfield position at Chelsea, was handed the man-of-the-match award for attempting to at least stamp some authority on proceedings.

After the game, the Chelsea man admitted his side had come up short in the final third and said they will need to be sharper in front of goal if they are to reach the knockout stages.
He said:
 “We are very disappointed because the opening match is very important. We looked for the win, but Iran knew what we wanted to do and put 11 men behind the ball. They managed to stop us from playing our game. We’ll have to create more chances in our next match and be sharp in front of goal.”

Next up for Nigeria are Bosnia in Cuiaba on Saturday night.

Boko Haram to Chibok: Expect Us Again


Barely two months after abducting over 200 schoolgirls from Chibok, Borno State, the militant Islamic sect, Boko Haram, has written to the people of the community to watch out for their next visit.

A highly-placed official of the Chibok Local Government Area, who made this known to journalists on Thursday, said that in the letter, the insurgents warned Chibok would soon be visited with terror.

He however said that the letter had been shown to police authorities who assured them of maximum protection.Punch reports that the official, who did not want his name in print, said in spite of the assurances by the police, the people were living in ‘‘great fear.’’
He said:
“Everyone in the LGA believes that the sect cannot be pocketed by security men. The letter has further worsened their fear. Whenever Boko Haram tells you that they are coming, they will never fail to do so. Our fear now is that, we don’t know when and how they are going to come but our people are in great fear. We are calling for prayers as well as on government to provide adequate security in Chibok.”

See Mexican Kim Kardashian Lookalike Who Is The Leader Of The World's Most Organised Drug Cartel's Killer Squad And Even Uses A Customised Pink AK47


Claudia is the lover of former Los Antrax leader Jose Rodrigo Arechiga Gamboa, 33, but is thought to have taken over from him after he was arrested in January
Claudia Ochoa FelixThe real Kim Kardashian attends a dinner date in Paris earlier this year
More than a pretty face: Claudia Ochoa Felix, 27, may look every bit like her idol Kim Kardashian (right), but she is in fact the new leader of an elite kill squad used by Mexico's most powerful drug cartel
Wielding her signature pink AK-47 and posing like her idol Kim Kardashian, this is the alleged new leader of an elite kill squad used by one of Mexico's deadliest drug cartels.
Claudia Ochoa Felix, nicknamed The Empress of Antrax, is thought to be the new leader of the 'Los Antrax' hit squad, used by the Sinaloa cartel to carry out executions and revenge attacks.
The 27-year-old uses social media to brag about her lifestyle, posting pictures of herself holding guns, posing with a leopard, and strutting around in tight outfits and swimsuits.
The shots even include images of her children lying with hundreds of banknotes surrounding them in the bath or on the bed.

U.S. intelligence sources have named the Sinaloa cartel as 'the most powerful drug trafficking organization in the world', and they are thought to be responsible for much of the heroin smuggled into America.

With her signature pink AK-47, Claudia is reported to be in charge of Los Antrax, a hit squad who carry out executions on behalf of the Sinaloa cartel

As a young mum with glamorous looks, curvaceous figure and bee-sting pout, the simi­­lar­­ities with reality star Kim Kardashian are there for all to see.
Claudia Ochoa Felix even has the millionaire life and army of bodyguards.
However unlike the US celeb’s heavies, the armed security of the Mexican beauty are not to protect her from over-zealous fans... but from assassins.
For Claudia has reportedly become the new head of the world’s most ruthless hit squad responsible for hundreds of bloody murders as the deadly Sinaloa drug cartel’s elite contract killer squad.
In recent years Los Ántrax,  were linked to three frozen bodies hung from a bridge, eight people shot playing volleyball and a gun battle with rivals which left 30 dead.

Claudia also posts pictures of her children, including this snap of her son covered in stacks of bank notes
But after Los Ántrax boss Jose Rodrigo Arechiga Gamboa – known as El Chino – was arrested in December, his Twitter-loving girlfriend Claudia is said to have been installed as the new chief.
Until then her every move had been charted on social media sites where she regularly posted pictures of herself in stilettos, caressing her custom-made pink AK-47 automatic rifle, reclining among masked men and propping a deadly M16 assault rifle on her curvaceous hip.
Her portrayal of a life of narcotics and narcissism undercut her emphatic denial that she is La Emperatriz de Los Ántrax - the Empress of Los Ántrax.
Claudia Ochoa Felix
Known as the Mexican Kim Kardashian, the mother-of-three gained notoriety after it was wrongly reported she had been tortured and assassinated. The victim was, in fact, Yurina Castillo Torres, a former girlfriend of Gamboa who looked remarkably like Claudia. Despite her insistence that she is just a devoted mum, Claudia wasted no time in capitalizing on the mistake by raising her notoriety through her internet sites with a flood of incriminating pictures.

But as news emerged of her rise to power she was quick to delete as much evidence as she could linking her to Los Ántrax. Instead she created a new Facebook page adding she had done so “to clarify all your doubts so as also to answer your questions... the only thing I ask is you to be respectful!” she wrote.

Gone were the pictures she had revelled in and in their place appeared photos of a loving mother devoted to her two young sons children and her “princesita” daughter.

The images of her past however remain across the internet. Pictures showing her AK-47 on the red leather seats of a BMW Series 3, the skull symbol of Los Antrax painted in black on the ammunition clip and another of one of her young sons lying on a bed covered in bundles of cash. She can be seen posing with members of a folk band which composed a ballad to Los Ántrax. In one photo the 27-year-old is even seen holding a grenade launcher while warning: “Watch your step, friend!”
Claudia shot into the spotlight in May after Yurina Castillo Torres, 23, was shot in a botched assassination attempt after she was mistaken for Claudia

Despite the threat to her life, Claudia regularly goes out clubbing around Mazatlan, Culiacan and Guadalajara, but always takes armed bodyguards with her
Claudia is also seen countless times in images posted by young members of the Sinaloa. One intelligence source said: “Felix claims she is just a regular mum but how many mothers have custom-made guns?

“She has access to astronomical wealth but has never worked a day nor come from a family with money. None of her former boyfriends have either.”

The father of her children is reported to be feared cartel lieutenant El Chavo Felix. However they split and Claudia moved on to another gang member Dorian Trinidad Leon Angulo. He died in a car 
crash – shortly after escaping jail – in 2011 while Claudia sat by his side.

She survived and again found love inside the cartel, becoming involved with El Chino who, according to reports, she went on to marry. The playboy was the gang’s top enforcer. His main roles were to oversee its armed squadron and protect Sinaloa’s top brass, which included the leader of the cartel, El Chapo (Shorty) Guzman, who is currently under arrest in Mexico. To read about his arrest please click HERE.

Like Claudia, El Chino loved social media, inundating Twitter and Instagram with photos showing his ill-gotten sports cars, yachts and guns. Away from the internet he was busy ensuring the Sinaloa cartel remained the most powerful gang in the world.

A blood-soaked war between drug gangs, raging in Mexico since 2006, has claimed 100,000 lives. Anyone who threatens to stand in Sinaloa’s way is immediately killed, with El Chino accused of being personally responsible for many murders, including the killings of the three hung from a bridge in 2011.

The execution was seen as revenge after a Sinaloa leader was murdered in a war with the rival Beltran Leyva cartel.

Countless victims have been executed by the gang’s trademark chainsaw beheading. Several folk songs, known as narcocorridos, mention El Chino Antrax as an elegant and fit man with a taste for the high life – and extreme violence. His nickname, El Chino, is said to have been coined as he looks to some as though he has Chinese ancestry.

In Twitter and Instagram posts he would often blur his face, while wielding automatic weapons and posing with scantily clad girls.
Claudia Ochoa Felix
Other flashy shots show cars, boats, helicopters and expensive jewellery. One picture is with Paris Hilton. According to a report, he photo-bombed the US socialite while she gave a TV interview. However US authorities used his addiction to the web to build a case against him and in December he was arrested in Amsterdam. Two weeks ago a Dutch court approved extradition to the US where he is wanted on drug charges.

America quickly moved to seize the wealth he flaunted online. Wanting to maintain his power base, El Chino apparently ensured that his wife became his successor. Claudia strenuously denies taking up his reins but she is now a target for rivals. Last month gunmen grabbed Castillo Torres as she left a gym believing her to be Claudia. She was tortured, hanged and her body dumped behind a school.

And news of Claudia’s alleged “appointment” led to a frenzy of activity on her media sites. She soon accumulated more than 100,000 followers.

Despite the assassination bid, Claudia refuses to quit her champagne lifestyle and is often seen in the clubs of Mazatlan, Culiacan and Guadalajara.

But now she is always surrounded by armed men.
Claudia married a Sinaloa drug trafficker known as 'El Chavo' Felix with whom she had three children

This story is just like the movies right? Crazy stuff.

BREAKING NEWS: Multi-Award Winning Gospel Singer Kefee Don Momoh Is Dead


Singer Kefee Obareki Don Momoh, popular for hits like 'Branama' and 'Kokoroko' is dead.
Kefee who married radio OAP Teddy Don Momoh is said to have gone into a coma after collapsing on a 14-hour flight while headed to Chicago for an event about two weeks ago.She was diagnosed of having pre-eclampsia – pregnancy induced high blood pressure, and her husband enjoined Nigerians to pray for her recovery.
Unfortunately she didn't make it. The multi award singer passed on this morning at the US hospital.



See the video of one of her most popular tracks Kokoroko below:
 May her soul rest in peace, Amen.

Nollywood has become too boring & predictable for me- Jim Iyke

In a new chat with Punch,Jim Iyke explains why he is not seen in Nollywood movies lately...
“Nothing was challenging anymore. It was too easy and too perpetual. It was too boring and too predictable. I had no room to pursue or hone other skill sets I had. I didn’t have time for extra curriculums like hobbies, family, and friends, personal and social advancements. Something had to give! After all, I was the guy that made 38 films in a year,”
On his bad boy image and constant controversies......

“I’ve heard that I deem myself something of a puppeteer and that I orchestrate these media maelstroms to maintain relevance and news. I wish I was that creative! The other side of the debate – the more discerning would argue – I’m a victim of PR machinery gone wrong. Perhaps my handlers in the earlier stages of my career saw a need to create an unfathomable media being that was as audacious as the characters I played in films.
“It caught on. Caused quite a stir, then quickly spiralled out of control. There were days when I wondered if I could have done something about it; like a campaign to state I was a different person. But then, the media loved it too much. It sold millions of movies. It sold papers. It also sold my privacy and peace of mind. I struggled for years to understand what it was doing to my psyche, my relationships, my family, my spirituality  
On Nadia.....
“She (Nadia) is a solid down-to-earth woman. I’m a man that translates variables in ways manypeople find incomprehensible. We have embraced who we are and learnt to create our own world and expectations. We have ups and downs like every other couple.We have our strength and weakness as well. At the end of the day, rumours of break ups and make ups ought to abound. It really doesn’t matter. A relationship is a continuous work. Those that give up, perhaps weren’t committed enough. Those that go in for the long haul suck up and square up to the variables life throws at them. The people that judge harshly are obviously the ones that live far from their desired lives. We just live the best way we know how and leave the rest to the author and

Wizkid dedicates new song to his mum [DOWNLOLAD & LISTEN]


 
Wizkid's 'Joy' is a wonderful true life story -  he not only sings about his relationship with his mother but also appreciates people who have been there for him starting from his mother. It looks like a Bob Marley‘s “No Woman No Cry.” cover. Even Davido had to tweet this at him: "Joy by great song!! Inspiring!!! U be legend g!!!"
"In the early 90s, that was the beginning, mama had me, she was definitely smiling...finally a boy, she was very very happy, she had prayed for this with the love of her life eh..she called me Grace, she called Blessing, she look into my eyes, called me love of her life, I wish I could go back and feel what she felt...she felt nothing but Joy...Joy nothing but Joy, every day of her life, nothing but Joy. 
When I was  a little boy, mama told me boy chase your dreams, and keep believing and the sky would be your beginning....she told me love would set me free...." So beautiful lyrics! You can download it HERE.

So there you have it.
Btw, here's a quick tip on how to be a great best friend.
Learn to listen. ----> Nobody likes a best friend who just talks and talks, but never listens. If you're a chatterbox, try to develop good listening skills. Whenever your best friend says something, listen carefully and say something. Don't just say "yeah" and move on. Don't interrupt or fidget continually while they're talking to you. If they ask for advice, listen carefully and give them the best advice you can. It'll earn you respect and of course, make them come to you more.

Boko Haram Leader may be the father of my baby - Abducted girl tells her story


A girl,  Meenah Dawah, kidnapped by Boko Haram for 27 months  recently told her shocking story to1Q4 news.
 
 Meenah Dawah  says she has a baby which may belong to Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau.   
 
 She was kidnapped at 17 after being forced to watch her parents being shot dead by the dreaded sect in her village in Konduga town, northern Nigeria.

While in captivity, she had to care for children born to Boko Haram commanders and members, and would tremble in fear as she heard girls scream as they were raped, and in some cases watch how girls were tortured for refusing to change their faith. She described how on occasions some top leaders of Boko Haram would come, and she was asked to entertain them.

It was on such visits she insists that Abubakar Shekau, Nigeria’s most wanted man, and Boko Haram leader, slept with her.
“He would just appear from nowhere like a ghost.He seems to be panicking all the timeand issuing instructions. He is a softly spoken man – it is almost as if he whispers, if you are meeting him for the first time, you would never be scared of him.
But I soon learned that after every whisper something dangerous would happen somewhere in Nigeria.Depending on the camp, some of the camps have everything, electricity, water and television, with different kind of electronics.He once asked me if I was willing to fight for the cause, to which I answered no, he told me I could be a fighter and a domestic slave. I didn’t want to speak to him in case what I said offended him.All it would take was one wrong word and he would have had me killed. I thought he was drinking or taking something whenever he came, one could notice maybe he lost men or something was not right.We moved a lot and depending on the camp, my role varied, it was so tough travelling around with a baby strapped to my back. Abu has many kids from many different women.Some of us women would go to Maiduguri to buy things when we have shortage, and a commander or two would follow us, and we acted as decoy when villages are ambushed.I’d be sent in to talk to people, then they’d move in behind me and start killing.Some of us girls would also have to carry guns, and often bombs too, there was this girl, she was forced to carry a rocket-propelled grenade launcher on her shoulder, then we had few men in that particular camp."
Meenah managed to escape when she was badly wounded by a bullet, after the Nigerian army attacked their camp. She was left for dead.The bullet in her leg was only recently removed at the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital in Borno State.

She has an uncle as a sole surviving relative, and it has not been easy as her uncle has not receive her warmly.
“My uncle will not have me because he is ashamed of my child whose paternity is not only questionable but is dangerous if it is Shekau.Before my parents were shot in the attack on our village, my dad had made plans for me to go and finish my secondary school in Government Girl Secondary School Shaffa, where we have a distant relative, but she was also killed in an attack on her way back from a market in that area.I know I am intelligent and willing to learn, but where do I start from?"

"I owe that woman"-Jim Iyke opens up on his ex-Keturah Hamilton‎,Engagement to Nadia Buari & TB Joshua


When Jim Iyke broke up with his American Fiancee of 6 years, Keturah Hamilton,she bashed him publicly saying his show was fake,and promised  to reveal his secrets.He kept mute till now....In a 90 minute interviewwith Emma Emerson of Golden Icons,he explained why he didn't respond and talked about a whole lot more .For those who can't watch,I've transcribe some excerpts.. ..Its a really long,interesting  interview...
On why he never responded to his ex's allegations
"I didn't say one word to the defence of myself or against her.Now I will tell you why.I spent 6 years with an amazing woman and there is nothing she does that will offend me enough to say anything negative about her.And if she was emotional enough to speak against me.I don't think she said it because she means it.Because she knows better.We didn't part well but we lived well.I don't have people that can sit and say things in my ear .That's what makes me different.What ever comes out of my mouth I take responsibility because i sat about it, tailored it and thought about it and said it.It's not the same.I can afford to forgive you if  you are emotionally charged and you feel wronged.You are going to say stuff you don't mean.But if I say it, please don't forgive me because I had no influence whatsoever,everything I said I meant it.So i knew i was able to control what came out of my mouth.She couldn't. That doesn't make her a bad person.It just meant that time is a healer.When time played it's course, she found out what she did was wrong.Some people are not meant in your life, they come play a very strong role and you owe them a debt you will never be able to pay for the rest of your life.That is what i owe that woman .I've offered friendship and she is taking that. I'm glad we can look at our stupid mistakes and laugh about it .. When you are in that place, there is nothing more beautiful than that .."

On moving on so soon to Nadia  
You can't make a judgement based on hearsays.Were you living with us.That relationship was well over before I moved on.I didn't owe anybody any explanation .When things are on a standstill, you either do yourselves a favour and move on...
On reports by a US based blogger that he is cheating on Nadia and was spotted with his ex at an airport 
  I didn't know there was an embargo on certain airports..I had a conversation with my pastor Rev.Godspeed and he said "Job  said when you speak twice about an issue, that's the last time you should speak about it"I will not give this guy relevance.Whatever he says is not worse than what has been said about me ..
On TB Joshua
I don't view it in a negative light.You can walk into a church and a man of God lays hands on you and you fall it's normal ,but Jim Iyke walks in and falls and they say oh my God evil spirits were cast from him.They said they paid me 50million naira to act that.That's almost  $100 thousand ..That could have been what happened or something spiritual actually happened.I could have been paid to act ..It is left for you and the public to judge 
On Nadia Buari forcing him for deliverance  
That is one of the dumbest notions I've heard in my life.Do I strike you as a man a woman would say go to a church, get a deliverance before I marry you and I would wake up and go?
On his Engagement  
That engagement was funny.We went to four countries in three days and I came back and people said I used it as a gimmick to sell my reality show ..It could be true.And others said no body could go out and get a 6 carat ring and spend that kind of money because it did cost some money , for it to be fake. The only two people that know the truth - Nadia and me.If I said I did get engaged, some will say it's a lie.If I say I did not, some will say I told you.So it doesn't matter.Let them keep talking .Don't forget,she is an actress and I'm an actor..
