Kante: Chelsea Switch Not A Gamble

Featured Image

N’golo Kante has insisted his decision to join Chelsea and miss out on UCL football was not a gamble.

#TransferLatest: Chelsea Sign Kante

Following an underwhelming campaign, Chelsea failed to qualify for the UCL, while Leicester City qualified, after surprisingly winning the EPL.

However, Kante is sure Chelsea will be in Europe next season. And is counting on Antonio Conte to take Chelsea there.

Claudio Ranieri : “We Can Replace Kante”

“It’s not a gamble. For me this is a new step. To stay at Leicester and play in the Champions League would have been a good step, but joining Chelsea is a good step too,” the 25-year-old was quoted as saying by Daily Mirror.

“Of course, I have never played in the Champions League. But everyone knows that Chelsea are a big club and I hope I will be playing in it next year.

“Playing in the Champions League is a big dream of mine. When you are a player and have a chance to play in it, it’s a good thing.

“But like I said, I hope to play in it next season.”

Lydia Forson Blasts Blog For Consigning Her To The Single Life

Featured Image

Lydia Forson didn’t hold back the pellets as she blasted a Ghanaian blog which misquoted her words and implied the actress said she will never get married. 

While on set of a movie, Lydia Forson had shared a snap with the caption “…I know I will NEVER have a big wedding” and the Ghana-based blog wrote, “Actress Lydia Forson sort of reiterated that she’s never getting married.”

Ms Forson, who is known to be very vocal, wasn’t happy with the report and fired back at them, writing:

“So a blog called enterghana.com decided that by saying I don’t want a BIG wedding, it automatically means I NEVER want to get married.

“And yes the “saints” will say oh ignore, let it go don’t say anything, because they’re so caught up in getting likes and having people “like” them that they’ll rather stay mute than speak out against something that’s wrong.

“These people are getting out of hand because of this.

“If you want to be respected as a journalist/blogger or whatever titles they go buy, start by respecting the profession, learn to read and write, don’t sit at home stalking peoples social media accounts for stories and then call yourself a journalist.

“I run a website and even I write about 90% of my content.  I’m expecting a retract.”

Yup, she deserves an apology. Shouldn’t consign on her what she hasn’t consigned on herself.

Barzagli: Higuain Can Be The Difference For Juventus

Featured Image

Andrea Barzagli is certain Gonzalo Higuain will be the difference for Juventus, as they long for UCL success.

The Argentine joined the Serie A champions from Napoli, for a fee worth €90 million. He signed a five-year deal.

Juventus got the final of the UCL in the 2014-15 season, only to crash out in the round of 16 last term. But hope to go all the way this season.

“Given the number of matches we will be playing, Higuain may well be the difference for us over the course of the season,” Barzagli told the club’s official website.

“He is an excellent centre forward and he has shown that with the number of goals he has scored everywhere he has been.

“The Champions League is a competition like no other with a handful of truly world-class contenders. We know that the road to get to the final is a tough one and to advance through the competition you need a host of factors in your favour such as injuries, form and even a touch of fortune.

“We’ve grown a lot over the last few seasons and we hope to go a step or two further this time around.”

While speaking to a panel regarding her Mariah’s World docuseries on E! on Wednesday, August 3, the singer answered questions about her children and ex-husband’s involvement in the show.

She said about her kids, “They can have their own show because that’s how funny they are. It’s not because they are my kids.”

The 46-year-old disclosed, “I think it should be sparingly used unfortunately, but they should have their own show. If I was an agent and discovered them, I’d be like these kids need to be on TV.”

“It is on record that the president has visited USA three times and his wife did not travel with him. Equally, she ought to have visited USA last year September to chair a United Nations programme but she sent wife of the Senate President, Mrs Toyin Saraki to represent her.”

Nigerian Female Trafficker ‘Who Threatens Victims With Juju’ Gets 22 Years In Prison

Featured Image

A notorious Nigerian female trafficker, who threatened to use black magic better known as ‘juju’ against the women and children she assisted to Europe for forced prostitution has been sentenced to 22 years imprisonment in London on August 4, 2016.

Franca Asemota was said to have been part of a criminal network that trafficked girls, boys and women from Nigeria to Europe, using the threat of “juju magic” to guarantee their compliance.

On August 2, the Isleworth Crown Court convicted her of eight counts of conspiracy to traffic persons for sexual exploitation.

The 38-year-old was also convicted on two counts of trafficking persons outside of the UK for sexual exploitation and two counts of assisting unlawful immigration.

Speaking on the matter, CPS London reviewing lawyer, David Davies, said:

“This case demonstrates how the CPS will work with partners, in the UK and overseas, in order to tackle the trafficking gangs who make huge profits from human misery.”

“Franca Asemota played a key role in exploiting the poverty and vulnerability of her victims with the aim of forcing them into prostitution to make money for criminals.

“These girls were from poor, rural backgrounds with little education or knowledge of the world. They were targeted because of this and promised legitimate jobs in Europe. Only when they were far away from their homes were they told the truth – that they would have to work as prostitutes.

“The traffickers used alleged juju magic to exert complete control over their victims, using rituals to ‘curse’ them and ensure their compliance. The girls were told that if they disobeyed their captors or tried to escape, the curse would cause them injury, infertility or even death.

“Although only five victims have been identified the evidence showed that she facilitated the trafficking of around 40 people, mainly young girls, between August 2011 and May 2012.

“I would like to thank the victims in this case for supporting the prosecution and giving evidence in court. They have been through a traumatic ordeal and their bravery and courage has helped bring Asemota to justice.”

Rummenigge Slams United Over Schweinsteiger Treatment

Featured Image

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has criticised Manchester United and José Mourinho for the way Bastian Schweinsteiger is being treated.

The former Bayern Munich star, who recently retired from international football, has been ousted at United, just one year after joining the club.

Rummenigge has been stunned by Schweinsteiger’s exclusion from United’s first-team plans amid reports he has been told to train with the reserves.

The Bayern executive chairman feels the 32-year-old’s treatment will make other big players think twice about joining United.

“When I read that I could hardly believe it,” Rummenigge told Bild.

“One or two players are going to think long and hard in future about whether they want to go to such a club.

“Nothing like that has ever happened at Bayern Munich and it will never happen.”

Schweinsteiger made just 18 Premier League appearances last season as he struggled with form and injury.

Courtois Happy With New Goalkeeping Coach

Chelsea shotstopper, Thibaut Courtois has stated he is now happy with the coaching situation at the club, after enduring a difficult 2015/16 season.

The Belgium international, had a falling out with Christophe Lollichon, Cech’s mentor. Lollichon was replaced this summer by Gianluca Spinelli.

The 24-year-old played his first full match of pre-season in a 3-1 International Champions Cup win against Milan and spoke optimistically after the victory in Minneapolis.

“It is going very well,” Courtois said. “There’s a new goalkeeping coach and it works really well. I feel well and I think that you could see that today, when I made some very good saves. So I think he’s done well.”

John Terry, Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta were familiar faces in Chelsea’s back four for the keeper to work with but he praised the performance of the youngster Aina, who has emerged as a potential starter ahead of the new Premier League season.

“He did well. He has speed, he trained with the first team and has good quality,” Courtois added. “He needs to adapt a bit to the level but I think he is doing well. He’s taken his chance and did well.

“He’ll be one for the future. It will be a hard choice for the manager to chose who will play but it is good to see a young prospect from the academy.”

Shekau Resurfaces, Accuses New Boko Haram Leader al-Barnawi Of Attempted Coup

Featured Image

Former leader of the notorious terror group, Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau has claimed that he is still in charge of the sect, even as he accused Abu Musab al-Barnawi of trying to stage a coup against him.

The elusive kingpin made this disclosure known, in a recorded message released few hours after the news of his successor was made public by ISIS via its magazine.

READ ALSO: ISIS Appoints New Boko Haram Leader

The Islamic State (ISIS) militant group had on Wednesday announced al-Barnawi as its West African affiliate ‘Boko Haram’s new leader.

However, Shekau, released an audio message in Arabic and Hausa, saying he was deceived, but he will never stray from the ideology of the Jama’atu Ahl as-Sunnah li-Da’awati wal-Jihad which he said had a basis in the Quran.

READ ALSO: Boko Haram May Have Lied About Allegiance To ISIS

In the 10-minute 23-second audio message, the shadowy leader of the ferocious Islamic death cult said:

“I want the world to know that we are still holding our ideology and tied with the Quran, we will not derail and will not revolt but will continue to remain in the cause of Allah. Following Prophet SAW is compulsory for us, and we will follow it to the end.”

“This is our stand, and we are still in the cause of Jama’atu Ahl as-Sunnah li-Da’awati wal-Jihad [Boko Haram] and Allah will help us. May Allah strengthen us to remain in this cause,” Shekau said in the recording, according to Sahara Reporters.

The online Newspaper also said:

The new Shekau message coming after one year of silence has clearly confirmed the ideological differences and friction in Boko Haram hierarchy and failure to resolve their differences which might have led to the IS declaring Abu Musab al-Banawi as the new leader of the deadly sect.

Authoritative sources have also confirmed that Shekau has been against IS advisors sent to train his fighters, he is also accused of hoarding food, ammunition and recklessly killing Muslims, allegation denied by Shekau in his taped message.

Abu Musab al-Barnawi, the purported new leader according to a famous journalist, Ahmed Halkida who has been following book Haram since its emergence said al-Bernawi is the son of late Mohammed Yusuf, the founder of Boko Haram who was extra-judicially murdered by the Nigerian police in 2009.

As at the time of this report, there is high indication that al-Banarwi will equally reply Shekau with his version of events. Boko Haram continues to hold several high school students kidnapped from Chibok hostage at an unknown destination.

Read is excerpts below:

All blessings be to Almighty Allah, and his His Prophet SAW. I am Imam Abubakar Shekau

“This is the message to the world, to those who can understand Hausa and any other languages it can be translated for a clear understanding of the message, which is why we are sending this message to the world.

“The content of my message goes thus. We have heard news going round and attributed to people we had earlier pledge allegiance to. Even though we are not against them base on the message we heard in the world radio but we are still on our ideology.

“We know those we differ with, and I have written on this long ago. All we wrote have been documented with me, some eight pages and some nine pages stating their kind of ideology.

“Because I stated it clear that I am against the principle where someone will dwell in the society with the infidels without making public his opposition or anger against infidels publicly as it is stated in the Quran. Anyone doing such can’t be a real Muslim thick and thin. This is what our ideology proved. And that is where I am, to them, a Muslim can dwell in the society and do his marketing compromising core foundations.

“I want the world to know that we are still holding our ideology and tied with the Quran, we will not derail and will not revolt but will continue to remain in the cause of Allah. Following Prophet SAW is compulsory for us, and we will follow it to the end.

“This is our stand, and we are still in the cause of Jama’atu Ahl as-Sunnah li-Da’awati wal-Jihad and Allah will help us. May Allah strengthen us to remain in this cause.

“We are still members of Jama’atu Ahl as-Sunnah li-Da’awati wal-Jihad, no matter what they call us, we remain what we are. No matter what we have our basis in Quran. No matter what they call us, what we aspire is to justify our ideology in the Quran which is ultimate because we have not derailed. We are on and in the future, we will not accept any emissary except the one we can attest he is sincere and truthful for Allah and His cause.

“In the first place, we sat and I was deceived, they said I should write my ideology to be taken if there is a mistake they will point out and bring back.  They now deceive me, and it is base on some authorities and today I found out that there is one who is following principles of infidel which they want me to follow, and Prophet has stopped us against such. We are still in the cause of Allah and will never depart in the struggle to establish an Islamic caliphate and standing by Islam. We will continue to work for the cause of Allah no going back.

“Anyone that caused this, no problem, if it’s possible may Allah show him the correct path and if it is not so may Allah protect us from his mischief.”

The prominent artist started by refuting claims that a near death experience was what changed his life as he responded to questions thrown at him by his followers.

He said: ‘I had an encounter with God on my chair’.

Lynxxx wrote on Instagram:

I come across people every day that have some many questions, remarks and comments about my New Life and Journey of Purpose and i love to hear and see people’s reactions, opinions and the likes about making a change to live a better / more fulfilling life (in Christ)..

I can’t count how many people have said “u must have had a near death experience” lol errrr Nah! I was actually sitting on my couch perfectly fine when i had an encounter with God and he revealed what my TRUE purpose of existing is and i am sharing that with you all daily!

Light extinguishes darkness, so once i saw the light … It was a no brainer to say good bye to my old life and old ways…. How far does “being ur own lord and master get u?” I’ll let u tell it

There’s greatness in EVERYONE, u just have to sometimes dig into ur soul and the word of God to find yourself! He has the key to ur destiny in his palm and no matter how u “Search” here “in the world”, u wld NEVER find it unless u go to HIM! (It’s a decision ull never regret)

When you encounter God, u receive power , peace that no man can ever take from u but ultimately u come alive in truth and in spirit… No amount of success, money or fame could ever give me that. Get Plugged in and Come Alive!

The club has been involved in a prolonged chase for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, but Mourinho refused to comment on the status of that deal.

READ: Mourinho: I Want To Win The EPL

“We are going to sign one more player for sure,” Mourinho told BT Sport after Wayne Rooney’s testimonial match on Wednesday night. “I don’t want to speak about Paul (Pogba) because he is a Juventus player and I don’t like other managers to speak about my players. I don’t speak about their players.

“But the reality is we are going to sign one more player. The market closes, as you know, August 31 so we have plenty of time to do that, but I’d like to do it before the Premier League starts.”

United’s next match is the Community Shield against defending League champions Leicester City on Sunday, before kicking off their league campaign away at Bournemouth the next weekend.

#ProjectFame9.0 Academy Day 10: Contestants Learn More

Featured Image

The 10th day in the #ProjectFame9.0 academy kicked off with Mummy J’s class. She brought an interesting twist to her class as she put the contestants through a dramatic vocal training session which entailed all the contestants walking round the class saying the words from the songs they would be performing over the weekend.

After all the contestants recited their words simultaneously, Mummy J had the contestants perform different tasks. Some of the contestants were made to recite their lyrics while others were made to talk to each other with the lyrics of the songs. Yusuph and Favour started off the recitation sessions with Mummy J giving plaudits to Favour for her energy.

Yusuph also had to do the lyrics recitation with Oluchi to get the emotional act right. Mummy J told the contestants that the purpose of the class was for them to let go of any inhibitions and release their emotions during performances.

Mummy J closed her session with a tongue rolling exercise which seemed the right way to end the class. Yusuph went on to have a personal conversation with Mummy J telling her he came into the academy with a lot of confidence but that he became intimidated with corrections that came from his fellow contestants. Mummy J told him that he needs to be able to set outside his naturally jovial nature and get into the character of the song. At the end of his chitchat with Mummy J, Yusuph seemed all the better for it.

The contestants in a surprising move sang a Birthday song for Mirabel’s mum who clocked 50. They organised a surprise phone call which seemed to strengthen the bonds between them to the delight of their fellow contestant- Mirabel.

The days class ended with Uncle Ben who, in his usual style, went the extra mile to teach the contestants how to differentiate between their different voices especially their nasal voices.

In a recent interview, Sebastian’s mom said she still wants to have kids with her ex, Wiz Khalifa.

“It’s kind of weird, because it’s like … we’re almost better divorced, you know?” She said. “It just really worked out for us that way.”

“He’s the love of my life,” She stated in reference to Khalifa, “And that will never, ever go away.”

“Maybe in a couple years, we’ll get back together and have some more babies. I tell him all the time, ‘Please just give me your sperm. That’s all I want.’”

“He’s like, ‘No,’ and I’m like, ‘Well, I’m just gonna have to take advantage of you then,’” she concluded.

Are Christians Second Class Citizens In Nigeria? – Fani-Kayode

Are Christians Second Class Citizens In Nigeria? – Fani-Kayode

I am glad that Father Mbaka of the Catholic Church has finally seen the light and that he has denounced the Buhari regime.

This coming from a man that once supported the President vigorously, even when members of his own flock and faith were being slaughtered, marginalised and humiliated, is cheery news.

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

Yet there are still many more Church leaders that supported the Buhari government, that sold their souls to the devil and that need to follow Mbaka’s example and recant.

The great philosopher, writer and intellectual Mr. Dante Alighieri once said that “the hottest place in hell is reserved for those who maintain their neutrality at a time of moral crisis”.

To add to this it was our very own Professor Wole Soyinka, the distinguished Nobel Laureate, that said “the man died in him who remained silent in the face of tyranny”.

I have no doubt in my mind that this is the time to speak out because we are not only in a time of great moral crisis in our country but we are also facing persecution and wholesale tyranny.

I am making this contribution not out of fear for the plight of the Christendom in Nigeria because I know that, as the Holy Bible says, “the gates of hell cannot prevail against the Church”. It also says “He who watches over Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps”.

It follows that no matter what the enemies of the gospel throw our way, including one million President Buhari’s, at the end of the day we shall prevail.

I am making this contribution not out of fear or to divide our nation but rather in an attempt to inform the Nigerian people and the world about what is really going on in President Buhari’s Nigeria.

What many fail to appreciate is that the Church and the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ was built and spread by the blood and the bones of the Christian martyrs.

It follows that the more you persecute, jail and kill Christians and the more you subject them to terror, shame, insensitivity and humiliation the more the Church grows.

Where the so-called “great” Christian leaders of Christendom with the mega-Churches and the better known Pastors and Bishops in the land have compromised with evil and have chosen to either side with the enemy or remain silent when confronted with the tyranny of the state, the Lord will raise other voices to stand up for and speak for His people.

Nobody is indispensable to the Living God, no matter how large, rich and powerful your Church is and no matter how many people you have in your congregation.

Once you have betrayed the faith and joined hands with those that seek to destroy the gospel and persecute Christians in our country you are finished and your end has already been determined by God. It is just a matter of time.

Yet thankfully there are some men and women of God that have refused to be silenced, that have proved to the world that they are not cowards and that have chosen to remain true to the faith.

These are the true believers who have not sold their heritage, faith and future for a mess of pottage. These are the faithful remnant who have refused to sit back silently and watch our Lord and His message being crucified all over again. These are the true saints whose reward is the Kingdom of God.

An example is Pastor Bright Bayo Oladeji, who is a journalist by profession and a Baptist preacher by calling. On the 2nd August 2016 he wrote the following on his Facebook page.

“Where are the Christians who sold the Church? The Islamic agenda is being perfected. Professor Ishaq Oloyede, a prominent Islamic fanatic who said he was not aware Christians are being attacked and killed is now to head JAMB replacing Prof Ojerinde, a Baptist.

Four Muslims were not replaced but left to continue. Out of the 17 offices, 9 new replacement are Muslims and 4 retained are Muslims. 13 out of 17 are now Muslims. NUC, Muslim. JAMB, Muslim. TETCOM, Muslim.

Where are those Christian leaders who sold the Church for a plate of porridge? Where are those telling us Professor Yemi Osinbajo would stand for the Church being a Pastor?

Do they involve him in all these lopsided appointments in favour of the North and Muslims or not? Do we have Christians among the APC leaders? Does Odigie-Oyegun, the National Chairman of the ruling party really belong to the Catholic church?

The fact that Buhari released these appointments the same day that the PUNCH Newspaper published an editorial titled” Buhari’s parochial appointments” (this is a paper that endorsed his candidacy) is a dirty slap on the nation.

To say the least, it is a corruption with impunity. Many are afraid to speak out and are being intimidated by the security operatives. Have we become second class citizens in our own country?”

Pastor Bayo, as insightful and courageous as ever, has asked a pertinent question.

Sadly the answer to that question is “YES”: since Buhari came to power Christians have become second class citizens in Nigeria. We warned our people but they wouldn’t listen.

Nigerians said they wanted “change” and now they must live with it. Every Christian that supported President Buhari and the APC, including some of the most prominent Church leaders, should bow their heads in shame.

As long as this evil continues we will not remain silent and neither shall we be intimidated. No matter how hard they try Nigeria will NEVER be Islamised and neither will our Christian faith be rubbished.

When Christians are treated with respect and dignity and when they are honored in the land that is when we will know that true change has come.

When Yoruba Muslims are allowed to lead their northern counter-parts in prayer in the mosque that is when we will know that true change has come.

When the secularity of the Nigerian state is reiterated and confirmed that is when we will know that true change has come.

When southerners are regarded as being on the same level as northerners in the affairs of our nation that is when we will know that true change has come.

When the murderous Fulani herdsmen and militias are finally disarmed and when they stop slaughtering our people with impunity and without any fear of retribution from the state that is when we will know that true change has come.

When Christians are no longer murdered in cold blood in some parts of the north simply for exercising their faith whilst the government turns a blind eye that is when we will know that true change has come.

When Christians leaders are no longer subjected to insults and brutal assault by over- zealous security agents simply for praying and reading the Holy Bible that is when we will know that true change has come.

When the Igbo people are not treated as pariah citizens and when their children are no longer shot in the streets like stray dogs simply because, as a people, they have their own dreams and aspirations and simply because they are protesting against the manifest injustice that they have been subjected to in the land, that is when we will know that true change has come.

When Middle Belters and the northern minorities are allowed to carve out their own identity and when they are freed from the intimidation, harassment, hegemony, genocide, cultural imperialism and slavery of the core Muslim north then we will know that true change has come.

Until then the change that the Buhari administration has offered and served to the Nigerian people is nothing but fake. It is a classic case of 419. It is evil. It is wicked. It is nothing but a monumental fraud.
