Kevin Durant Explains Why His Shoes Are Expensive

Featured Image

Kevin Durant Explains Why His Shoes Are Expensive – The prices for NBA superstar Kevin Durant’s shoes are skyrocketing, and he has the perfect reason for it.

Older installments of his shoes, such as the KD2, cost $88 (N25,000) on their release, but the last edition, the KD9, costs a way higher $150 (N42,000).

READ: Kevin Durant To Sign With Warriors

Speaking to Nick De Paula of sneakers website NiceKicks, Durant revealed his shoes were now more expensive because he was now a superstar player in the league.

“As humbly as I can say it, I’m not a $88 player. I’m an elite player in the league,” Durant said. “On these shoes, you get it all, and for a nice price. You get the newest innovation, you get the newest Zoom bag, and you get my story along with it. If you’re a fan of what I do in the game of basketball, this is perfect for you. As I evolved as a player, I knew that the shoes, in order for it to stay on the same course and trajectory [that I was headed], I might have to come up a bit on some of the stuff I said earlier. Hopefully people understand, and I think a lot of people have.”

The shoes are definitely going to bring more money to Durant, who recently shocked the basketball world after he signed a 2-year, $54 million deal with the Golden State Warriors.

Antoine Griezmann knocked in a brace, as France made it to the final of the Euros on home soil.

Germany were in control for most of the match against France. But Griezmann was on target again, when Neuer punched Paul Pogba’s cross straight into his path, with the Frenchman firing into an empty net.

France will face Portugal in the final of the showpiece event on Sunday. Portugal beat Wales 2-0 to make it to the final.

Urgently Needed: A National Hall of Shame – Kenneth Gyado

Featured Image

Urgently Needed: A National Hall of Shame

On a recent visit to New York, I had cause to engage a good friend who is the publisher of a very influential online medium on why incidences of sleaze have continued unabated in Nigeria despite institutional frameworks put in place to check them.

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

This young man who has dedicated his entire work life to the exposure of corruption at all levels was of the opinion that official graft has been on the rise because perpetrators feel that the benefits of their crimes far outweigh the punitive consequences, even when they are caught.

According to him, not only are our laws very weak, the officers of the law are also deep in the rotten cesspit and have proven over the years to be facilitators of these crimes. He offered a brilliant quote which captured my imagination. He said, “the only weapon left to fight official crime in Nigeria today is the mobilisation of shame”.

The interesting part now is that even the mobilisation of shame is proving to be inadequate because these felons believe that the noise about their criminal acts is just a passing phase that will be drowned out over time or will become irrelevant at the exposure of the next big crime. They have studied the mentality of the people so well, and that accounts for their sudden transformation from being disgusting criminals to heroes. They deploy their manipulative skills to play up the ethnic and religious cards to appear as victims. Sponsored articles and advertorials suddenly appear to say “our son is being persecuted because he comes from a minority tribe or because he is a Christian”.

My psyche suffered a heavy assault recently when I read an advertorial from an amorphous group in Adamawa State saying Air Marshall Alex Badeh is currently being “persecuted” because he is a “Northern minority Christian”. What they didn’t say was whether he shared the N558 million he collected from the Nigerian Airforce coffers monthly with Northern minority Christians. They also failed to say whether the palatial mansions and shopping malls he bought were converted into cathedrals and community halls for his minority ethnic group in Adamawa.

Because of the “short memory syndrome” that has become a pervading disease in Nigeria, those who should be spending time making restitution and begging for reabsorption into society are now champions of populist causes. They believe that by making the right noises, their multiple sins of greed, larceny, avarice and covetousness will be forgotten. That was why DSP Alamiesegha was celebrated as a hero despite his conviction for the severe looting of Bayelsa State. This is the reason why people like Gabriel Suswam still go to public functions pontificating on good governance when his eight year adventure as governor set his Benue State centuries behind due to unprecedented graft, the poverty of ideas and incompetence occassioned by gross maladministration.

For a person who has been indicted by a Judicial Commission of Inquiry and who is standing trial for the crudest forms of theft, the only explanation for his public outings denigrating the government of his successor, Dr. Samuel Ortom is his opportunistic scheme to use the current economic challenges in the country to whitewash a thoroughly soiled image.

At this stage, what should ordinarily concern him is to deal with the exposure that he and 51 others cornered N107 billion for themselves while the State bled to near death. He should also explain the existence of over 4000 ghost workers while he ruled as governor. Benue people also need to know why despite the inability to pay salaries for six months before he left office, he still employed over 5000 people into the state civil service on the eve of his departure. We need to know why he paid himself N450 million as overhead cost 24 hours to the end of his tenure. Why did he leave his over 500 personal aides unpaid?

Again, Benue People need to know how come the fortunes of the state suffered downward reversals while the rulers of the state became suddenly stupendously wealthy. Who owns the Riverside mansion, Metropolitan Hotel, several shopping plazas, Atom Kpera Lodge, Wuye Market etc?. Who owns the large piece of land opposite IBB square where a proposed superstore by Shoprite is said to be coming up?.

I believe that our society needs to reinvent or recreate itself. I do not believe that the characters we lionise and celebrate represent the best that we have. It is a testimony of collapsed values when those who claim to speak for us reek of corruption. Can you imagine someone like Bernard Madoff who ran the biggest scam on Wall Street giving lectures on how to revive the stock market?

I watched the Attorney General and Minister of Justice Abubakar Malami on a programme on Channels TV where he said he is currently drafting a Bill to the National Assembly proposing for the establishment of a National Crime Museum where enlarged photographs of Convicted Felons along with details of their crimes will be publicly displayed so that generations of Nigerians will be able to go and see the faces of the criminals that once brought Nigeria to her knees.

If the current wrist slaps that corruption convicts get have not deterred them from criminal activities, I think the possibility of their children one day seeing their faces in this Crime museum will make them think twice before they dip their hands in the till again. Also, a person whose image exists in the museum will not insult our minds by talking righteously. I suggest that the museum be called “National Hall of Shame”.

Oil Workers May Have Shifted Strike Action Till Monday

Featured Image

There are indications that oil workers in Nigeria have decided to postpone their planned strike till Monday, July 11, when negotiations are opened with the federal government.

READ ALSO: Fuel Scarcity Looms As PENGASSAN Plans Indefinite Strike

The acting general secretary of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN), Lumumba Okugbawa, had on Thursday morning denied knowledge of negotiations between any arm of the association and the government on any of their demands.

“It is not true there are on-going negotiations between PENGASSAN and government. Apart from the inconclusive negotiation on June 23, which was rescheduled to June 30, only to be put off indefinitely with no further appointment, we are not aware of any other negotiation with government,” Mr. Okugbawa said.

Frowning at the government’s nature of causing confusion with negotiations only whenever a strike notice is issued, he said:

“If government was sincere, why would it always wait till after the strike had already started before coming out in the media to talk about non-existing negotiations?”

Okugbawa also said the office of the Federal Ministry of Labour had sent an email to the leadership of PENGASSAN late on Wednesday inviting them to a meeting scheduled for Thursday (today) when the strike was planned to commence, only to later resend another mail rescheduling the meeting for Friday, saying the previous schedule was not convenient, in view of the extended public holiday.

However, he said the association had since replied the government that the Friday schedule was equally not convenient, as it could not get all its top executives from across the country where they were deployed to monitor the beginning of the strike.

“In any case, the decision to embark on the strike was taken by the National Executive Council of the Association. It is not possible to stop the commencement of the strike now for a meeting with government on Friday. As far as PENGASSAN is concerned, the strike has commenced as planned. The strike can only be suspended or called off by no other arm, but NEC. For now getting all its members to return for a meeting is going to be difficult,” he said.

Premium Times gathered that although he did not confirm any new date the association would find convenient, Mr. Okugbawa said it would not be earlier than next Tuesday.

Early next week, the federal government will be represented by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige and the Minister of State, Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu in a meeting with the leadership of PENGASSAN at the NNPC Towers in Abuja to find a way to resolve their demands.

Wimbledon 2016: Serena Williams Advances To Final After Dominant Performance

Featured Image

Serena Williams is one win away from claiming a record equaling 22nd Grand Slam title, after making it to the Wimbledon final.

The top seed was in control from start to finish, as Serena needed just 48 minutes to beat Elena Vesnina 6-2, 6-0.

”It’s never easy out there,” Williams said in an interview with the BBC after leaving Centre Court.

Williams’ serve was in fine form, reaching 123 mph and producing 11 aces against the 50th-ranked Vesnina, who was participating in her first major semifinal and trying to become the first unseeded woman to reach the title match at the All England Club in the Open era.

Williams won 28 of 31 points that she served, including the last 17. She compiled a 28-9 edge in total winners.

Gwen Stefani Talks Shattered Dreams, Messy Divorce, And Finding Love On Harper’s August Issue

Featured Image

Gwen Stefani bared her all in Harper’s Bazaar August Issue where she opened up about her divorce from Gavin Rossdale after he cheated on her with her children’s nanny in February 2015.

The pop queen dished out on her lowest points during her divorce and finding love again with Blake Shelton, who was also coming out of an ended marriage.

Stefani revealed she had amazing parents, who have been together for 50 years and saw her parents love as something desirable. But that didn’t happen for her as her 14-year marriage ended, leading her to what she called the lowest point in her life.

Gwen Stefani hot for Harpers Bazaar-01

“My dreams were shattered,” she revealed to Harper. “All I wanted my whole life was to have babies, be married, like what my parents have. Then I remember thinking,’There’s gotta be a reason for this.’ Of course you go through the ‘Why me?’ and feel sorry for yourself. But then I was like, ‘No, this happened to me already and I made something good out of it,’ and that was Tragic Kingdom.”

Sharing custody custody of their three children, Kingston Rossdale, Zuma Rossdale and Apollo Rossdale was also pretty hard on her as she tried to figure out what exactly on earth she had done wrong to deserve such pain. “What?! What did I do?” Stefani queried.

She admittedly compared her life after the discovery of her husband’s infidelity to a living hell, “It was the beginning of hell. Like six, seven, eight months of torture, trying to figure out this big secret.”

READ: Gwen Stefani On Why She Left Gavin Rossdale: It’s A Good, Juicy Story

While calling prayer the antidote that saw her through the darkest period of her life, Gwen Stefani said, “That’s my childhood, that’s how I was raised. And I think I strayed from that. But you know when it gets that bad, you just get desperate? You’re on your knees.

Gwen, Gavin and their three kids

Around June 2015 she began writing again and slowly recorded the single “This Is What the Truth Feels Like”.

Gwen Stefani recounted, “I had spent a lot of years not being confident about my songwriting. But I know that’s all I had left, and that was my gift. I had read somewhere if you don’t have gratitude and confidence in what you’ve been given, you’re nowhere.”

Her confessional album “Used to Love You” which was inspired by the end of her marriage was written only a few weeks before the single came out last October. Ironically, the album became Stefani’s first number-one solo hit.

On her relationship with Blake Shelton, the mother-of-three said, “It was just like everything flipped. It went from horrible to, like, hopeful and, like, ‘Wow, God, you just don’t know what’s gonna happen next. It’s crazy the support and love I’ve felt. Life is such a weird. I mean, I can’t believe I’m number one on a country chart.”

Only good things come to those who believe.

President Mahama Blames Nigeria For Power Outage In Ghana

Featured Image

President John Mahama of Ghana has on Wednesday faulted the delay in the delivery of the crude oil ordered from Nigeria as the rationale behind the intermittent power outage in the some parts of the country.

READ ALSO: In Italy: Nigerian Asylum Seeker Beaten To Death In Racist Attack

Speaking during eid-el-fitr speech at a ceremony in Accra, Mahama said the sabotage of oil terminals in Nigeria occasioned the delay in the supply of crude oil, which Ghana ordered last month.

He said, “Recently, there have been some issues with electricity tariffs; the Electricity Company of Ghana has done some work on it. They have done a realignment of their billing system and I believe that people can begin to feel some relief in terms of the bills that they were paying. The bills have been made more transparent so that you can tell with every unit you buy, how much the value of the unit is.

“Aside from that, we have recently suffered some generational problems. I held a stakeholders’ meeting with all those involved in the power sector. Because of sabotage in Nigeria on the terminals, crude oil that we ordered last month has not arrived; and so, it has created some generational problem for us.”

The President said he had asked the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company to start storing at least one month of light crude oil supplied for Ghana so that in the event of any problem at the supply end in Nigeria, adding, “We were not affected the way we are currently affected.

“So, I will crave your indulgence and urge all of you to understand. We are not declaring load shedding, I believe things will be normalised, but we are taking steps every day to ensure that Ghana has security when it comes to power.”

The West African Gas Pipeline Company had late last month said it had suspended the flow of gas from Nigeria to Ghana over unpaid bills by the Ghanaian government.

The West African country has been experiencing a massive short fall in electricity production in recent times causing individuals and companies to complain.

Ciara Files Legal Documents As Future Threatens To Murder Russell Wilson

Ciara and Russell Wilson finally exchanged “I do’s” and became husband and wife, Wednesday, (June, 6) though it seems their union doesn’t have her ex’s blessing as Future released a diss track where he said he would pull up on someone trying to f*** his baby mama.

Ciara and Russell

According to TMZ, the track is from DJ Esco’s mixtape called “Juice” and includes the lines: “Murder trial, O.J. Simpson. White on white, O.J. Simpson. Double murder, O.J. Simpson.”

That isn’t the line Ciara is worried about as the rapper went further to spill lyrics which sent the new-bride into chills and into the courthouse to file legal documents against him, again.

Future rapped, “Tryin’ to f*** my baby mama, dog what’s up with you? You gon’ make me get a heat, I’m pullin’ up on you.”

In the legal files in her defamation lawsuit against Future, the singer laid out various threats Future has made with special reference to the football emojis with guns pointing in their direction which the rapper posted on his social media.

Ciara opined the threat to Russell Wilson was real and described Future’s attitude as, “frightening” and “socially irresponsible … where there has been a recent rash of gun violence.”

Some men just don’t know when to let go.

Chimamanda Adichie Reveals Women Now “Perform Pregnancy”

Featured Image

Chimamanda Adichie is not one for public display of pre-baby bumps or post-baby shinanigans as the celebrated author let it slip she had a baby and no one knew because she feels there’s a sudden trend where women are now ‘performing pregnancy’.

In a recent interview with Financial Times online (Lunch with FT interviewed), the famed author disclosed she was drinking ‘Chapman’ a mocktail because she was breastfeeding.

Adichie unknowingly said to the reporter, “This is just very sugary, very sweet. I would probably have a glass of wine, but I’m breastfeeding, I’m happy to announce.”

A known feminist through her novels, went on about the  joys of motherhood while reaving her baby’s sex for the first time publicly – “This is the first time I’m saying it publicly. I have a lovely little girl so I feel like I haven’t slept . . . but it’s also just really lovely and strange.”

Having let it slip she had just had a child, the very private Americanah author revealed she didn’t want to be a participant in the ever growing circle of public display of pregnancy.

“I have some friends who probably don’t know I was pregnant or that I had a baby. I just feel like we live in an age when women are supposed to perform pregnancy. We don’t expect fathers to perform fatherhood. I went into hiding. I wanted it to be as personal as possible.”

Chimamanda who is married to Dr. Ivara Esegee, refused to tell the reporter her baby’s name with a firm “No, I won’t say” when she was asked about what she had chosen to call her child.

About women ‘performing pregnancy’, Chimamanda isn’t alone in her thoughts as the upsurge of displaying baby bumps and post-baby blues is a trend that has been on the rise for a while now and from the look of things, will keep rising.

More Crisis In PDP As Makarfi-led Faction Wants Sheriff Arrested

Featured Image

The crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a result of leadership tussle and polarity is not giving room to resolution as the Ahmed Makarfi-led faction has urged the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Kpotun Idris to immediately order the arrest and prosecution of a factional National chairman of the party, Modu Sheriff.

In a statement signed and issued in Abuja on Wednesday by its spokesman, Dayo Adeyeye, the party accused Sheriff of disobeying a court ruling, by conducting a separate Edo State governorship primary, and issuing a certificate of return to Matthew Iduoriyekemwen.

The statement also called for the apprehension of Iduoriyekemwen alongside Sheriff for contempt to court order.

The party, in the statement, said Mr. Sheriff’s decision to issue a certificate of return after a court judgment on Monday, was utter disobedience and disrespect for court judgment and should not be treated with levity.

The statement read: “We are shocked at the attitude of the former National Chairman of our great Party, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff who has become an authority in the Country with flagrant disobedience of the Nigerian Constitution, the Electoral Act and the PDP Constitution without being arrested or detained by security agencies. Is he above the law? If we may ask.”

The party said Justice Abdullah Liman’s Judgment on the 4th of July, 2016 is superior to all other court rulings, ex-parte orders or interlocutory injunctions procured by Mr. Sheriff.

“You will recall that Senator Sheriff in collaboration with some APC Governors and members invaded our Party Secretariat on Monday June 13, 2016 laying claims to a non-existing Court Order; and he has started again after a competent Court issued a Judgment upholding the decision of our National Convention in Port Harcourt, Rivers State which constituted the PDP National Caretaker Committee to pilot the affairs of the Party for 90 days, and to conduct another Convention that will elect new officers of the Party. Following this, we are calling on the Police to do the needful by arresting Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, his co-travelers and Hon. Matthew Iduoriyekemwen for disobeying Court Judgment”.

The party said the law as it stands only recognizes Osagie Ize-Iyamu as the authentic and only candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the September 10, 2016 Election in the State.

Richard Mofe Damijo Delivers Heartfelt Eulogy To Late Movie Icon, Bukky Ajayi

Featured Image

Richard Mofe Damijo delivered an emotional tribute to Nollywood veteran Bukky Ajayi who died Wednesday, (July, 6).

In it, the actor expressed deep regret at taking the gift of life for granted as he didn’t visit her when he was supposed to.

Bukky-Ajayi is dead

The late Bukky Ajayi

Ajayi passed on after a heart attack at the age of 82 and in accordance with Islamic rites, she was buried the same day.

Coincidentally, the Nollywood veteran passed away on the same day as Richard Mofe Damijo’s 55th birthday.

Rihard Mofe Damijo’s eulogy read:

Aunty Bukky, I am sorry. Sorry I did NOT visit you in your last days, not because I didn’t want to but because I took for granted the gift of life and procrastinated’.

To think that I spoke to Abounce Kunle your son (whom I share the TV series Hush with where he is such a star now as Ruffy Jackson. Taking after you) several days ago to ask for the best time to come see you…if I knew it was time I would have come that very day to see you but who would have thought that the bold, strong Aunty Bukks who has consistently defied every circumstance and risen above every situation will go to sleep so soon’.

It is my birthday today and as I sit here writing you, I can only think how ironic it is that you have completed the circle of life. I am deeply pained by your passing but I am extremely proud that you are a part of my life and I yours.

I love you very much Aunty Bukks and will NEVER trade the memories of you for anything. Sleep well in Gods bosom. #GreatLoss.

RIP Bukky Ajayi, your legacy and those you’ve affected through your life lives on.

Bale: Euro 2016 Exploits Will Earn Wales More Respect

Featured Image

Gareth Bale is certain, Wales exploits at the Euro 2016 will earn them more respect from other nations.

Wales had a beautiful run in France, only to crash out at the semifinals to Portugal. With Ronaldo and Nani scoring two goals in the space of three minutes in the second half.

Bale could not score his fourth goal of the tournament. And is certain his teammates will be viewed differently after claiming victories over Slovakia, Russia, Northern Ireland and Belgium.

“I think we’ve grown in confidence and grown in stature,” he said. “We’ll be more respected now. We said all along, we don’t just want to qualify for this tournament; we want to qualify for major tournaments every time we go into qualifiers.

“The hunger’s there, the spirit’s there. We’ll take all the positives and go into the next campaign trying to pull that off again.

“We always wanted to test ourselves against the best countries in the world. I think we’ve done everybody proud, done ourselves proud. We can hold our heads high and give it a right go again.”

Wales kick off their bid to reach the 2018 World Cup in Russia against Moldova at Cardiff City Stadium in September, in a group also featuring Austria, Serbia, Republic of Ireland and Georgia.

“Our hunger is there more than ever now,” Bale said. “There is still a lot more to come, still a lot more to improve from us lot.

“Come the World Cup qualifiers, which are not too far away, we’ll get straight back to working hard and doing what we do best.

He added: “We have to be happy with what we’ve achieved. It hurts now because it’s fresh.

“We’ve been on an amazing journey. The whole nation has enjoyed the whole experience as much as us.

“It’s been one of those moments in life that you’ll never forget and is very special to all of us.”
