“The decathlon for me was the ultimate in what people think of as manhood,” Jenner says in the interview. “So for me it was a good place to hide. I had a need to prove myself, that maybe that woman that’s living inside of me really isn’t living there.”

“I loved what I was doing,” Jenner said. “I was the best in the world at what I did. But I knew [the 1976 Games] would be the last time. I kept thinking, ‘Hold on to the moment, hold on to the moment. Remember this moment, it’s going to be over so quickly. You’ve got a long life to live after this.’”

YOUWIN! Buhari Agrees To Support Jonathan Govt’s Job Initiative, Pays N1.6bn To 638 Awardees

Featured Image

The President Muhammadu Buhari-led government has shown its readiness to support the Youth Enterprise with Innovation in Nigeria (YouWin) programme, an initiative of the past government, as it has paid the sum of N1.6bn to 638 awardees.

The programme, initiated by the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan in 2011 as part of the government’s job creation initiatives, provides grants to about 1200 people to start small businesses each year.

It also made provisions for the training of entrepreneurs.

There were clear indications that the federal government may scrap the programme, with series of protests over the delay in grants.

However, Na’inna Dambatta, director of information at the ministry of information, said the money was paid in June, 2016.

A statement signed by him read below:

The Federal Government is set to start consultations with beneficiaries and other stakeholders on the restructuring and refocusing of the multi-billion Naira Youth Enterprise with Innovation in Nigeria (YouWin) programme with the objective of injecting new ideas for its sustainability.

The Federal Ministry of Finance, which has been running the programme from inception, has scheduled the consultation for July 22, 2016 in Abuja, where representatives of the beneficiaries drawn from the six-geo-political zones and other stakeholders would chart a way forward for the programme.

Under the programme which took off in 2011, a total of 18, 000 young entrepreneurs have been trained in various aspects of Small and Medium Enterprises management and business skills; and 3, 900 of them, including 1, 200 women, were each given non-repayable take-off grants for businesses of their choice ranging from N1 million up to a maximum of N10 million.

The third edition of the programme, which is still running with 1,500 beneficiaries, has received the sum of N11.2 billion in funding, and so far grants totaling N7.4 billion have been disbursed to the awardees. In June 2016 alone, the sum of N1.687 billion was paid to 638 awardees.

The Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, said that as part of the change agenda of the current administration, the YouWin programme has to be restructured to ensure efficiency, transparency and accountability in investing the capital grants given to the beneficiaries by the Federal Government.

Mrs Adeosun confirmed that all FG commitments under the YouWIN programme will be fully met, but due diligence would be carried out on every beneficiary, using tools like the Bank Verification Number (BVN), and before disbursements.

ICYMI: Emery Named New PSG Coach

Featured Image

Ligue 1 giants, PSG have signed Unai Emery as manager of the club until 2018. This is due to the exit of Blanc from the club.

The former Sevilla manager is a three-time defending champion of the UEL. And left the La Liga club after the 2015/16 season.

And it I’d clear that PSG owners will do anything for European success. As they replace Blanc with Emery.

The mammoth wealth of the French team means Emery has been appointed in a bid to reach the summit of Europe’s elite competititon.

Chelsea Handler Writes Pro-Abortion Article; Reveals She “Had 2 Abortions At 16”

Featured Image

Chelsea Handler Writes Pro-Abortion Article – Comedian Chelsea Handler has written an article for Playboy magazine pushing for the legitimization of abortion.

She started the article by revealing that she had gotten pregnant at 16. Not only once, but twice.

I was going through a very bad stage in my life. I hated my parents and I was having unprotected sex with my boyfriend, who was not someone I should’ve been having sex with in the first place, never mind unprotected sex. I wasn’t really playing with a full deck of cards, and when I got pregnant I just thought, Why not? I can have a baby. Maybe I’ll have twins and give them rhyming names! Of course, the idea that I would have a child and raise it by myself at that age, when I couldn’t even find my way home at night, was ridiculous. My parents recognized that, so they acted like parents for one of the very first times in my life and took me to Planned Parenthood. I felt parented, ironically, while I was getting an abortion. And when it was over, I was relieved in every possible way.

And I didn’t have just one abortion; I had two in the same year, impregnated by the same guy. I didn’t have the money the second time. I had to scrape together the $230 to pay Planned Parenthood, but it was a safe abortion. Getting unintentionally pregnant more than once is irresponsible, but it’s still necessary to make a thoughtful decision. We all make mistakes all the time. I happened to fuck up twice at the age of 16. I’m grateful that I came to my senses and was able to get an abortion legally without risking my health or bankrupting myself or my family. I’m 41 now. I don’t ever look back and think, God, I wish I’d had that baby.

She slammed states like Mississippi and Missouri who had passed laws to reduce the ease of abortion for women, saying they’d never be able to take America back. She ended by article by praising women who had abortions.

We have 7.3 billion people on this planet. Anybody who carefully decides not to become a parent—let alone a bad parent, which is what I would have become—should be applauded for making a smart and sustainable decision.

N4.9bn Fraud: Fani-kayode, Usman Remanded In Prison As Court Adjourns Trial

Featured Image

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arraigned two former ministers and chieftains of the People Democratic Party (PDP), Femi Fani-Kayode and Senator Nenadi Usman, with 2 others for allegedly laundering of over N4.9 billion.

Others charged alongside the duo before the court are Danjuman Yussuf, Olubode Oke and Join Trust Dimensions Nigeria Limited.

The 17 count- charge filed against the accused persons were bordering on unlawful retention, use and payment of money in the tune of about N4.9 billion.

The two former ministers had pleaded not guilty to the 17 count charge preferred against them by the anti- graft agency.

The arraignment of Fani-kayode, who was a spokesperson of the PDP presidential campaign in 2015, had been postponed twice in the past, due to the absence of the trial judge, Justice Sule Hassan.

Hassan’s absence, it was learnt, was due to an “official function”.

However, at the resumed trial on Tuesday, Justice Hassan ordered the prison remand of the accused persons soon after their arraignment pending when he will hear their bail applications on Friday, July 1, 2016.

FG Officially Cancels Post-UTME, Threatens Sanctions

The Federal Government has on Monday issued a statement officially cancelling post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) conducted by universities as entry requirement for undergraduate degree programmes.

READ ALSO: JAMB: Nigerian Govt Scraps Post UTME, Pegs Cut-Off Points At 180

Reiterating the ban by the Nigerian government, the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, while speaking to pressmen in Abuja threatened that any institution that violates the directive will be punished severely.

He said: “The ban is with immediate effect and under no circumstance should any institution violate the directive. Those who have already advertised for the conduct of the Post-UTME under any guise should stop the exercise immediately.

“If any tertiary institution has already conducted Post-UTME, such an exercise stands annulled and money taken from candidates must be refunded immediately.”

He said the emphasis had become necessary to ensure that no stakeholder was left in doubt about government’s position on the matter.

The minister added: “For the avoidance of doubt, any educational institution, after secondary education, is regarded as a tertiary institution. Therefore, all tertiary institutions, by whatever name it is called, after secondary education, must be subjected to admission through JAMB.”

JAMB charges N5, 000 per candidate for computer-based UTME, while universities collect between N2, 000 and N60, 000 from admission seekers as post-UTME fees.

Dubai Properties: Terrorists Now Migrated To The Internet, Says Buratai

Featured Image

The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Tukur Buratai, has revealed that the terrorists, under the aegis of the Islamic terror group, Boko Haram, who have been defeated on the field, have now migrated to the cyber space and the internet.

The statement came on the heels of accusations by an online media house that he bought a second choice property in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, days after his appointment as Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff (COAS).

Speaking on Tuesday with pressmen at this year’s Army Day celebration, Buratai stated that he is unmindful of the controversies surrounding the allegation.

The COAS stressed that he will not be reacting to the report as preempted by the media house but warned that the army will trail the terrorists who have migrated to the internet and defeat them.

Meanwhile, prominent Nigerians have called on the Federal Government, particularly the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, to investigate the Chief of Army Staff, for allegedly purchasing $1.5m properties in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.

Last week, Buratai and his two wives were reported by an online medium, Sahara Reporters, to have owned $1.5m  properties in Dubai.

According to the National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin, Buratai should be probed over the allegation of the Dubai property scandal.

He stated, “The defence the army put up for him is so silly to be believed outside the barracks. All the earnings of Buratai since he joined the army, if all were saved, cannot buy a house in Dubai, let alone two.

“The army also exposed itself as a lying institution when it said Buratai was never in charge of procurement in writing. The investigation should make Buratai to let the country know that he did other businesses to buy the property in question so that the integrity of the anti-corruption war can be intact.

“The house could only come legitimately through other businesses outside his pay. The savings from the salaries of any army officer in Nigeria cannot buy a house in Dubai.”

Alleged Forgery: Buhari, Saraki In Heated War Of Words

Featured Image

President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari and the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, started the week against the backdrop of a heated verbal exchange, in the wake of the arraignment in court of the senate president and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, for alleged forgery of the rules of the upper legislative chamber.

Saraki, who is facing trial alongside Ekweremadu, for alleged conspiracy and forgery of Senate Standing Rules with which the Senate presiding officers were elected and inaugurated on June 9, 2015, had accused the Executive of being the architect of his travails.

READ ALSO: Trial On Alleged Forgery: Saraki, Ekweremadu, Others Plead Not Guilty

Also charged were the former Clerk to the National Assembly, Salisu Maikasuwa and his deputy, Ben Efeturi.

A statement signed personally by Saraki stated that the charges of forgery pressed against him and other alleged conspirators represented “another phase in the relentless persecution of the leadership of the Senate.”

He said: “a government within the government of President Buhari, which has seized the apparatus of Executive powers to pursue a nefarious agenda”.

“This misguided action by the Attorney General begs the question, how does this promote the public interest and benefit the nation?”.

“At a time when the whole of government should be working together to meet Nigeria’s many challenges, we are once again distracted by the Executive Branch’s inability to move beyond a leadership election among Senate peers. It was not an election of Senate peers and Executive Branch participants.”

However, the presidency, who appears not in the mood to condone with any allegation, faulted Saraki over his claim that a cabal has hijacked the government.

READ ALSO: Saraki, Ekweremadu To Be Arraigned Next Week On ‘Forgery Allegation’

Buhari, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said the allegation was a mere invention of Saraki and “is not even worth the paper on which it was written, as anybody can wake from a troubled sleep, and say anything”.

He issued a statement, saying: “This claim by Senator Saraki would have been more worth the while, if it had been backed with more information. If he had proceeded to identify those who constitute the ‘government within the government’, it would have taken the issue beyond the realm of fiction and mere conjecture.

“But as it stands, the allegation is not even worth the paper on which it was written, as anybody can wake from a troubled sleep and say anything.

“The Attorney-General of the Federation is the Chief Law Officer of the state. It is within his constitutional powers to determine who has infringed upon the law, and who has not.

“Pretending to carry an imaginary cross is mere obfuscation, if, indeed, a criminal act has been committed.  But we leave the courts to judge.”

Directed by Paul Gambit; just like the audio content, the video for Nobody’s Business by Skales sheds more light on how far “people“ can go to invade what he cherish the most i.e. privacy.

With the help of a perfectly themed music video, the Baseline Records acts seems to be at peace; with whatever deal he may have inked with the label again –after the initial fallout–.

Much Ado About The N2.5 Million Dress Yemi Alade Wore to the BET Awards

Featured Image

She has dubbed herself ‘Mama Africa’. And clearly from her music, Yemi Alade tells one message and one message alone – she is Mama Africa. The last time we heard someone being called that, it was the legendary iconic, now late Mariam Makeba who was a civil rights activist apart from being an award winning musician. Hence, Yemi Alade has big shoes to fill.

The idea of being Mama Africa is about spreading the message that we should embrace our roots. Believe in Africa. Love being African. Be African.

So why did the K.I.S.S.I.N.G crooner attend the BET awards wearing something that was non-African?

She was spotted on the red carpet wearing the piece below from celebrated designer Zuhair Murad’s 2016 Resort Collection which reportedly cost a staggering sum of N2,500,000.

BETAwards-Yemi Alade_360nobsZuhair is a Lebanese. Not an African. It is a disappointment that someone who calls herself Mama Africa and is the face of African Fashion Week Nigeria goes to an awards show outside the country to represent Nigeria and the continent rocking a Lebanese wear. What happened to Mademoiselle Aglaia, Iconola, Tinnah Styling, the designers whose wears Yemi is known to wear? Why did she choose to make such a bold fashion statement by choosing something that does not align with her image?

Well, we will not know her reasons until she chooses to respond. All the same, her fans are disappointed. This was her opportunity to represent Nigerian design but she blew it. She didn’t look Mama Africa. She looked Mama Colonized.

If wearing a Zuhair is about getting herself on the list of stars the designer has dressed, and having a name in the international scene, then she has achieved her purpose and we wish her well.

Popular Musician Goes Missing After Criticizing State Politicians

Featured Image

A popular musician from Adamawa State known as Ado Daukaka has gone missing after debuting a new song. The controversial song titled Gyara Kayanka condemns politicians in the state.

Ado Daukaka’s single hit the airwaves on Friday, June 24 and the next day, he was never heard from again. He was last seen on Saturday morning after he left his house to attend early morning prayer at a mosque.

One of his relatives, Atiku Mustapha, says his disappearance is not unconnected with the new song ‘Gyara Kayanka‘ where he alleged that some elected politicians of the ruling APC were deceiving the electorate. He said,

‘’It is not surprising that he could be abducted because of his song because in his new song in which he compared the present and past elected members of the Adamawa State House of Assembly. The way and manner things are happening will not augur well for the state.

They just want to intimidate those that are criticising the charade playing out in the state.”

The leader of the Adamawa Concern Citizens, a pressure group in the state, Hussaini Bello, condemned the act. He said, “We totally condemn the abduction of this famous singer. We are investigating the matter and whoever that has hand in it must be exposed. In our society singers use their God-giving talents to capture the mood of the society, the songs sometimes don’t go down well with those in power except if the singer praises them.”

Wizkid hook on what appears to be his lead single off Tinie’s 3rd studio album titled Youth. Lovely single titled Mamacita and it’s safe to say that it will chart in the UK and can easily go to #1 on the UK Charts.

The founder of Disturbing London (Fashion & Record Label), took to instagram to share a picture of himself and Africa’s afropop prince, Wizkid enjoying a drink in Dominican Republic shooting The video to Mamacita.

‘Mamacita’ from Tinie Tempah featuring Wizkid gives you a bit of everything – a bit old school with a dash of nu-skool, taking you through South America with the trumpets.

Wizzy who has just finished from an European tour with another friend, Chris Brown is just about the hottest african artist right now – collaboration with Drake on One Dance with Kyla definitely cemented his weight  and status in the music world internationally.

The track starts off with Wizkid on the chorus, and his usual growl with Tinie coming through with his playful lyrics, ‘Keeping it hundred in the fast lane’, ‘Baby you’re my cup of tea, I really like your company’… over trumpet sounds with the perfect latin vibe.  We can imagine the video would be HOT. Can’t wait.

While we await the release of “Mamacita” visuals (shot in Dominican Republic), here’s some ground footage from Tinie Tempah‘s visit to Lagos, Nigeria sometime this year.

The “Unchained Mad Dog” And The Barking Madam – Ahmed Oluwasanjo

The “Unchained Mad Dog” And The Barking Madam

Hate or like him, Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose is a master of his own brand of politics. Fayose, fondly known as “Oshokomole” amongst the Ekiti people, has proven that he has the key to the hearts of the majority in Ektiti State. If anyone is in doubt of Oshoko’s popularity amongst the Ekiti people, tell him or her to ask his predecessor, Kayode Fayemi.

This piece was written by Ahmed Oluwasanjo. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

From taking shots of paraga on the streets, buying ponmon in the market to his most successful “stomach-infrastructure” project, Fayose has delivered dividends of “demo-crazy” to the Ekiti people. As such, he remains the people’s governor and a political moving train that cannot be stopped as far as Ekiti State politics is concerned. The likes of Tope Aluko, the APC lawmakers who wanted him impeached and the Ekiti court judge and litigants who were beaten to stupor at Fayose’s behest can attest to this. ‎

Coming to national politics, Fayose is a different personality to different people. He sees himself as the “nemesis” of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration and the All Progressives Congress (APC). To the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its sympathisers, he’s the most courageous, fearless voice of the opposition. While to others, he’s just a brighter reflection of the restless boys we see in motor parks.

Last year, Fayose stunned Nigerians by sponsoring a front-page death-wish advert on candidate Muhammadu Buhari, in the run up to the 2015 presidential election. At another instance during the campaign, he revealed the size of his brain as he was reported to have said, “My over 70 years old mum wears diapers”, just to rubbish Candidate Buhari as a man too old to be elected as president of Nigeria. For a political “Solomon” like Fayose, there is no limit to what he could do or say in politics. ‎So, we wouldn’t be surprised one day to hear Fayose praise himself as the dinosaur of Ekiti State politics, whose greatest achievement is buying ponmo and taking shots of paraga on the streets. ‎

Last week, Fayose’s reaction to the freezing of his Zenith bank accounts by the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), revealed how crude he could be. The EFCC has claimed that Fayose’s accounts have been frozen as a result of ongoing investigations that link the funds in the accounts to the Dasuki yam-sharing festival.

Provoked by the fact that he was denied access to the yams in his barns, Fayose decided to shock Nigerians by exposing President Buhari as not being the holy person he makes out to be. “Even the president cannot claim to be an angel. The estate he built in Abuja is known to us… His wife was indicted over the Halliburton Scandal (sic). When that American, Jefferson, was being sentenced, the President’s wife was mentioned as having wired $170,000 to Jefferson. Her name was on page 22 of the sentencing of Jefferson”, Fayose said.

In response to Fayose’s claim, two former EFCC chairmen, Ibrahim Lamorde and Nuhu Ribadu, both said that the Aisha Buhari, Fayose referred to in his statement was an imposter. However, reading Fayose’s statement and the links attached to it reveals something striking.

First, Fayose fails to mention the specific location and the name of the estate he alleges Buhari to have built in Abuja for those of who would like to verify his claim. Second, had Fayose taken the picture in the New York Time article to those women he buys ponmo from, they would have seen that the imposter in the article is different from who he is maligning and cautioned him not to embarrass himself or infest the public with his ignorance.

In addition, an investigative report published in Sahara Reporters reveals that, “there is another Aisha Buhari, living in the Virginia area: the same Aisha Buhari who claimed to be President Buhari’s daughter but who actually has no relationship with him”, while Premium Times also reported that, “In attacking Aisha Buhari, Fayose mixes up ‘scandals’”. With these reports in two credible online news platforms, the plot of Fayose to pull the wool over the eyes of the public has failed.

Anyway, thanks to Fayose for bringing the Halliburton scandal up. It is a call for the EFCC to revisit the Halliburton scandal and bring those involved to book. Just as Fayose must prove to Nigerians that the ‎yams in his barns are not from the Dasuki yam-sharing festival, while also revealing the legitimate activities he engaged in to earn him such humongous amount, as reported, and the taxes he paid on these earnings. Period.

And as for the voice that thundered from the Rocky Villa via a tweet that reads: “…Fayose is an unchained mad dog…”, I wish to say that Nigerians are very much “impressed” that she has perfected the style of Madam “Na-Only-You-Waka-Come”. Her reaction was so “civil”, but she ought to have known that barking at an “unchained mad dog” is infra dig. All she needed to have done was to throw the dog a bone it cannot resist.
