Sola (not real name), had no inkling anything was wrong with her only child, six-year-old Mariam, when she was brought home on holiday during the Yuletide.
This unnamed Nigerian couple looking astonishing would have had a beautiful pre-wedding photo if not for an epic mistake made by the designer of their customized shirts.
The pre-wedding photo
A couple are currently being shamed on social media for rocking customized shirts with wrong grammatical expressions.
The shirt designer used the non-existent word ‘stoled’ in place of the word ‘stole’.
On the shirt of the man carried the inscription ‘I stoled your heart’ while that of the lady had ‘I stoled your surname’.
Social media commenters wonder how the mistake eluded the couple, photographer, on-lookers and even friends and family members close to them.
Selena Gomez was feeling cheeky Wednesday afternoon.
Shortly after E! News confirmed that the “Good for You” singer is now dating The Weeknd, famed photographer Mert Alas shared a behind-the-scenes picture of Gomez posing in thong underwear on the set of a photo shoot.
Wearing large hoop earrings, the pop princess covered her bare breasts with a towel while pouting for Alas, who captured the moment on his iPhone.
Alas titled the provocative shot “Beauty and the Beast.” He later tagged The Weeknd in the comments and included a black heart emoji, but the “Starboy” singer hasn’t written a response.
The Weeknd previously commented on Gomez’s booty in the song “Party Monster.” Describing his dream woman, he sang, “Angelina, lips like Angelina / Like Selena, ass shaped like Selena.”
That same day, The Weeknd’s ex-girlfriend Bella Hadid unfollowedGomez on Instagram.
For different reasons, neither star was looking to get into a relationship.
But The Weekend “always had a thing for Selena,” the source said. “He thinks she is extremely talented and sexy.”
“They are taking things slow and getting to know each other.”
Gomez is slowly but surely wading back into the spotlight after taking a break in 2016.
The Weeknd, meanwhile, will debut the music video for “Party Monster” Thursday.
The singer, 26, will also headline Bonaroo with Chance the Rapper, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and U2 in June.
Two graduating students of the University of Lagos (UNILAG)have achieved a remarkable feat after they recorded 5.00 Cumulative Grade Point Average, CGPA in 2015/2016 academic session.
This remarkable feat is coming a year after Ayodele Dada, a graduate of Psychology, made history by becoming the first student of the institution to achieve the feat.
According to Punch, the Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof Rahamon Bello, who described 5.0 CGPA as the “perfect score” during the 2016/2017 matriculation on Friday, named the two students as Taiwo Bankole and Ajoke Omotuyi from the Department of Cell Biology and Genetics, Faculty of Science and the Department of Systems Engineering respectively.
“Both students, females, had also posted a `perfect score’ of 5.00 CGPA, thus matching the record set by Dada in 2014/2015 academic session,’’
He added that such successes were only possible through a dint of hard work, and not myth.
“All it requires is to be focused, disciplined and consistent.”
The 5.0 CGPA is the “Holy Grail” of undergraduate accomplishments and requires a student to score straight As in all their courses over the four, or five year period as the case may be.
While explaining that 7,882 students, representing 18.69 per cent of those that applied, met the admissions criteria after a thorough screening, the UNILAG VC told the matriculating students that gaining admission into the 54-year-old institution was not only noble, but also glorious.
“You will from this day, become bona-fide students of the University of Lagos,”
He urged the students to shun immoral and indecent behaviours and work hard to distinguish themselves in their academics as the university had a motivational package for scholars.

Sources close to the ex-couple tell TMZ … they weren’t getting along in Turks and Caicos, because he was hanging with friends and not paying attention to her.
She went nuts on him, he got pissed and left the island without her, and she said, “Screw this,” and ended the relationship. Just that simple.
There are reports Meek had been cheating with a woman named Sonye Rasool and that’s what set off Nicki. Sonye claims she and Meek hooked up years before Nicki, but fully denies any cheating and adds … she’s about to file defamation lawsuits against several outlets.She also says she understands truth is a defense, but has no fear.
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said that the existence of its leader Nnamdi Kanu is mysterious. The group said its agitation for the freedom of Biafra cannot be a fraud as claimed by many due the mystery behind its leader.
In a statement released by its spokesperson Powerful Emma, the IPOB referring to a map said there is a divine force behind the group motive and its leader.
“Look at this this ancient map of Biafra and marvel at the divine force behind Kanu and IPOB,” Emma said.
Below are the eight mysterious highlights revealed by IPOB:
1. “Can you notice the beloved country Biafra was originally called BI-AFARA, yes you read it right and Nnamdi Kanu was born in AFARA his village in Ibeku Umuahia.”
2. “Do you know where the Biafra war ended, the place OJUKWU took off from to Ivory Coast? Yes you have guessed it right, the same Nnamdi Kanu’s village Afara.”
3. “Do you know the location of the last Biafra capital and headquarters? Yes, you guessed it right, in the same Afara on the ancestral lands of Nnamdi Kanu’s family Okpulo Isiokwe in Isiama Afara. Hope you are still following.”
4. “Do you know Ojukwu’s last broadcast was made from this same Afara and so was the last Radio Biafra broadcast of the war?”
5. “Do you know Nnamdi Kanu with his friend Dr. Chukwuma Egemba operated their management consultancy company in London called Alpha Phoenix Consulting Ltd? When KANU chose the name he didn’t know what it meant. To him it was just a very good name for a soon to be trendy management consultancy firm in London.”
6. “Unknown to Kanu and his friend, Alpha Phoenix means the rising of the mythical bird Phoenix that rose from the ashes of defeat to conquer. The same way Biafra has risen from the ashes today and is poised to gain her overdue freedom.”
7. “Alpha is first in Greek alphabet i.e. 1 (One) and KANU is from Isiama which means first or number one kindred. Are you still following?”
8. “How can Uwazuruike the criminal, ever think that Nwa Chineke Nnamdi Kanu can ever be like him?”
Ever wondered what to do when he suddenly goes cold? When it comes to dating, one of the most discouraging things is when you’re speaking with a man and, out of nowhere, he vanishes. He stops texting or he says he’ll call and he doesn’t. Essentially, whenever he doesn’t call or text you back it can drive you crazy.
In these scenarios, it can be challenging to determine what to do when he doesn’t text back. The confident part of your brain wishes to believe something occurred like his phone died, or he’s busy with other things, or maybe your phone is broken and the text simply didn’t go through.
Then there’s that miserable part of your brain that is envisioning the outright worst and feelings of rejection surface. How do you deal with the vanishing man? Exactly what do you do? Well, for starters, read these tips. They’ll help, I promise.
1. Don’t bombard him with messages.
The absolute worst thing you can do is bombard them with your own messages when somebody is not responding to you. It’s the easiest and fastest means to push someone away. I know how irritating it is to go without a feedback; however, do not begin sending a bunch of texts, calling, Facebook messages and texting his friends to see if he’s with them. It looks desperate and also makes you seem a little crazy.
2. Send a casual text.
Nevertheless, it’s totally acceptable to reach out to him once or two times to state what’s up. If he hasn’t responded to your text in 3 days or he’s stated he would call and never ever did, shoot him an easy and casual and playful text. I would personally drop it if you don’t get a response a second time. Stay casual about it. If you send out a mad, demanding text right away, he’s definitely not going to answer.
3. If possible, reach out in person.
Casually try to see him in person. You’ll be able to get his vibe when you see him in person. Plus, it will give you the opportunity to dress to impress and ignite his attention. Men are very visual creatures and sometimes they need a friendly reminder of how fantastic you are. You’ll know something is up if he acts unusual or is really avoidant.
4. Be careful about who you complain to.
I understand this whole scenario is most likely making you upset and really mad. Just be careful about who you complain to. I wouldn’t complain to any mutual friends you have with this person because they can easily go back and inform them what you stated or, even worse, make things more dramatic and make you seem crazy. Vent to your close friends who you trust, but do not let everyone know you’re upset.
5. Avoid writing about it on social media.
Again, you don’t want this to be a public affair — it’s between you and this person and it’s no one else’s business. Avoid sub-tweeting nasty remarks or making “subtle” Facebook statuses that are obviously about him and the situation. You may believe it will capture his attention and make him wish to call you, but it will certainly just make you look immature and annoying and turn him off.
6. Don’t wait around for him.
When he’s been blowing you off, I understand how easy it is to obsess over a possible text or message from this man. Don’t wait around for him. Don’t continue your phone glued to your hand or jump every time it makes a noise. Don’t stay home simply in case he calls. Head out, live your life and try to put this in the back of your mind.
7. Move on and cut your losses.
If he never ever reacts to anything? Seriously, forget him and move on. Giving him no attention and doing your own thing will offer a much better message than sending him a long text explaining why he’s a dirtbag. And if he’s not going to respect you enough to answer you, he’s unworthy of your time at all.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) says efforts to save the naira by rationing foreign exchange have gradually crumbled.
The IMF also said the challenges around foreign exchange in Nigeria have pushed inflation to double digits in Africa’s largest economy.
This is coming a year after Christine Lagarde, IMF managing director, met with the main players in the Nigerian economy, including Kemi Adeosun, minister of finance; Godwin Emefiele, governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and President Muhammadu Buhari.
Lagarde, at the time, called for subsidy removal and devaluation of the naira — both of which have been done.
In its policy paper on macroeconomic developments and prospects in low-income developing countries (LIDCs), unveiled on Thursday, the IMF said the failures in the economy were due to “delayed/poorly managed policy adjustment”.
“There were sharp movements in currencies across many LIDCs during 2015. Further sizeable depreciations were recorded in 2016 in commodity exporters under stress,” the paper read.
IMF said this includes “Mongolia, where reserve levels have been significantly eroded, and Nigeria, where efforts to support the naira through foreign exchange rationing have gradually crumbled”.
“Inflation has risen to troubling levels in a handful of cases, concentrated in sub-Saharan Africa. Among commodity exporters, large exchange rate depreciations were a key contributor in Mozambique, Nigeria, and Zambia”.
The IMF blamed the failures on lack of business confidence in conflict zones and delay in policy adjustment by the country’s leadership.
“Domestic policy failures cited include delayed/poorly managed policy adjustment to lower commodity prices — as in Nigeria, where foreign exchange rationing adversely affected debt service capacity of many corporates.
“Nigeria (is) affected by Boko Haram-led attacks in the north and disruptions to oil production in the Niger Delta region. Aside from direct damage and increased security outlays, conflict situations undermine business confidence, investment, and tourism.”
The fund also said Nigeria’s financial developments affected neighbouring countries like Chad, which also plunged into a recession, and Benin.
“External developments have predictably played an important causal role in the emergence of financial sector stress, through falling commodity prices, declining remittances, and adverse spillovers from neighbors — as in the impact of Nigeria’s economic difficulties on Benin.
“That said, teams’ assessments indicate that poor macroeconomic policies and weak supervision have also played a significant contributory role.”
