E! Cancels Caitlyn Jenner’s ‘I Am Cait’ – There will be no season 3 for Caitlyn Jenner’s TV series, I Am Cait, after it was cancelled by E!

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star announced the new on her Twitter page, expressing her gratitude to E! and her co-stars for 2 seasons.

READ: Nigerian LGBT Advocate, Bisi Alimi And Caitlyn Jenner Are Not Dating, Just Friends

An E! spokesperson issued the following statement: “We are incredibly proud of the two seasons of I Am Cait, a groundbreaking docuseries that sparked an important and unprecedented global conversation about transgender people, their struggles and triumphs. Caitlyn and E! have mutually decided not to move forward with another season at this time. She will always remain a part of the E! family, and we look forward to continue following her journey as she appears on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

It’s Over! Johnny Depp And Amber Heard Settle Divorce, Dismisses Accusations Against Him

Featured Image

Alas, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard finally settle out of court for a whooping sum of $7M i.e. N2,248,750,000 in current rates. 

The estranged pair were due in court Wednesday, but Depp and Heard came to a conclusion that she’ll receive the sum in exchange for the dismissal of the domestic violence restraining order petition she filed against him.

The petition was “dismissed with prejudice” meaning, Heard can never refile the petition.

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard issued their first joint statement together.

It read:

Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love.

Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm.

Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future. Amber will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to a charity.

There will be no further public statements about this matter.”

We were pleased with Amber getting all that money till we discovered she had to give it all away.

Not sad for Ms Heard as she had earlier declared her disinterest in Depp’s money, saying all she wanted was for the divorce to be over. 

Their highly publicized legal battle has been one of the nastiest this year.

From Artist To Author, Skuki Peeshaun Releases A Relationship Book

Featured Image

If you are looking for a way to get your man to fall in love with you over and over again, Skuki Peeshaun says he has the key. 

Peeshaun shared a snip of his perspective on relationships and what to expect from his new book.

Never bring old problems into a new relationship.
.
The negative vibes you got in your last relationship must vanish with it. Don’t try correcting the mistakes you made with your ex, by being paranoid with your next.
.
SECONDLY: It’s common that partners ask about each other’s past, wanting to know what the other has done before their hook up.
.
Word of caution: I agree that you should be open, and by all means be honest, but if there are some immature things you’ve done, and you’ve outgrown them, then narrate your story… but minimize the details, downplay the facts.
.
Examples: If your ‘new’ girl asks if you ever cheated on your ex, and even tho EFCC is currently looking for you cos of how much you cheated, my brother, tell her you didn’t. If you didn’t own up to your ex (the person you cheated on gangan) then why open up to your ‘new’ all in the name of sharing past.
.
If you are a girl and your new man asks if you ever gave ur ex BFs a b*** job. If u have done it, then say you have done it, but don’t go describing how intensely you engaged in it. Even if you know you can blow pass Boko Harram, just say ‘yea I did it a couple of times’- kpam!
.
NOTE: Every guy wants a good girl, that’s bad for only him and every girl wants a bad guy who is good to only her.
.
“In a new relationship don’t go over-detailing your past. Who past epp?” – ‘Peeshaun 2016’.
.
THIRDLY: Creativity. Be yourself- YES, but be your creative-self. There are so many little things we can do to make our partners happy, to at least cushion the times when our opinions don’t align at all.
.
“The absence of creativity, is the presence of boredom”- ‘Peeshaun 2016’.
.
FOURTH: A lot of people go into relationships, even marriages thinking that it would automatically work itself- No! If you don’t want your relationship to hit stagnancy, then you have to put in work.
.
“Work on your relationship, and it would work for you”- ‘Peeshaun 2016’.

If Skuki Peeshaun is serving these pointers, we wonder just what the full book will entail.

Finally! Kim Kardashian Admits To Getting Her Famous Derriere Injected

Featured Image

Kim Kardashian finally confirms what has been roaming on everyone’s mind – those who care enough to follow her life – regarding her getting her butt injected. 

Yes, she did get her bum injected. No, not for the reason you think.

The reality-star revealed via a livestream on Monday, August 15, that she has a skin condition called ‘psoriasis’ which caused her to need a shot in her famous behind.

“There is a picture of me in Miami wearing an electric blue dress, and another picture of me walking down Robertson,” she said. “You see the indent. And I think that’s when the rumors started: ‘She’s had implants.’

Kim Kardashian’s behind

She became aware of the condition after her mom, Kris Jenner, notified her of a rash on her leg.

“I went to go get a cortisone shot in my butt. I lived right behind Kitson [a boutique in Los Angeles near Cedars-Sinai Hospital]. One of my neighbors was a dermatologist at Cedars. I go in there and he’s like, ‘There’s a one in a billion chance that you will get a huge indent in your butt.’ Of course I get a huge indent on my butt.”

Kim Kardashian first made her condition public during a 2011 episode of KUWTK.

Kim said she’s still receiving shots for psoriasis.

“Every few years I get a cortisone shot,” she revealed. “I just got one as my psoriasis was so bad in Vegas.”

 

Psoriasis is a long-lasting autoimmune disease which is characterized by patches of abnormal skin. These skin patches are typically red, itchy, and scaly. They may vary in severity from small and localized to complete body coverage.

Injury to the skin can trigger psoriatic skin changes at that spot, which is known as Koebner phenomenon.

Dr Sid Lists Wizkid, Davido, Tiwa Savage, Korede Bello And Seyi Shay As Stars Shaping Nigerian Music

Featured Image

Dr Sid tips off several artists whom he believes have been significant in positioning African music, aptly dubbed “the new sound”.

During an interview organized by Boiler Room in collaboration with the British Council alongside DJ Jimmy Jatt and Don Jazzy, Dr Sid proudly talked about Wizkid’s influence on scene. Read the excerpt from the interview below:

“We are very proud of Wizkid for what he has done and what he is doing. He has actually put Nigerian music on the map.”

Listing a few others whom the singer posits can represent the country internationally, he continued, “Tomorrow it could be Davido, next tomorrow, it could be Korede Bello, Tiwa Savage, Seyi Shay. They are all artistes that are getting recognized now in the music that they do in Africa.”

“What we need is to get the music on bigger platforms, proper global distributions, proper radio placement. If you wanna break the sound, you can actually say, “You know what? Every day on BBC or hot97, we are gonna play you music from Africa because that is the new sound”.

Dr Sid sounded very proud of his heritage as he said, “For me, what is most important is sound and the core element of the sound remains African.”

Although expressed distraught at he slow-pace at which the world was coming to terms with the acceptance of the continents style of music, Dr Sid declared, “It is taking longer for the world to actually recognize it but that is the new sound. Dance is there, electronic music is there, hip hop is there but the African sound is different, it is groovy and it makes you wanna move. You can see the infusion of that coming in a lot of songs than you actually know have African influence.”

African music especially those from Nigeria is very influential internationally. We just have to pay more attention to better production and especially better lyrics and we’ll be closer to the recognition  we seek.

Daddy Freeze On Jhene Aiko’s Divorce, It’s Better To Quit Than Cheat – True Or False?

Featured Image

Daddy Freeze shares his opinion on the Jhene Aiko and Dot Da Genius divorce saga.

Jhene Aiko has been accused of being unfaithful to Dot with Big Sean long before their marriage was over.

Now, if she has decided to call it quits, maybe for the same reason everyone is accusing her of ie a secret ongoing affair with Big Sean, isn’t it in the husband’s interest to accept the divorce and move on with his life?

READ: Dot Da Genius, Jhene Aiko’s Ex Speaks Against Attempts To Slander His Name

And for Aiko, if a woman has to be with a man she would cheat on, isn’t it better she leaves him in peace and go to whomever makes her happy and can keep her thighs closed only to be parted for him?

jhene aiko

Jhene Aiko and Big Sean

Sometimes one has certain expectations before marriage that they fail to experience once they get into it and those who can work it out, work it out but for those who can’t, they either cheat, or like Aiko, step away, regardless what anyone has to say.

Read: Jhene Aiko Nullifies Marriage To Dot Da Genius After Kissing Big Sean

It’s better to be single and happy than be yoked with a person you can’t stay faithful to. Marriage isn’t a prison.

Still, Daddy Freeze’s words are always a worthy read:

I don’t think Jhene deserved to be slaughtered on social media.

The ‘volatile’ social media of 2016, allows victims to be torn apart by people, who oftimes are in worse off situations themselves.
I watched with utter amazement, as a 44 year old spinster, tore Jhene to shreds over her cheating allegations/divorce, calling her all sorts of unprintable names.

Because of this social media, that gives every Tom, Dick and Harry a microphone, a 44 year old woman, who has never been married and has no children can condemn another woman’s choice?

The first question on my mind was “Madam, how come you are not married at 44?” but fear no let me, as it was obvious that the poor mare needed an outlet to vent her frustration.

When Jhene started trending, I read tweets with awe, people who had little or no access to the real information, out of the blues became ‘professors of Jhene’, earning their PHDs and masters degrees on the subject, after spending all of 5 minutes digesting the story on TMZ.

Some others who weren’t afforded the education TMZ gave, as their data plans were limited, relied solely on Facebook and Twitter, for their ONDs and HNDs on the subject.

I respect Jhene for deciding to end a ‘fungating’ relationship. There are a few reasons why a woman would cheat, the worst being that her heart is no longer in the relationship. Should she have stayed and continued cheating on Mr Dot, or moved on?

Some suggested that she should have stayed and fixed her marriage, despite allegations of violence.

Hmmm like that gentleman in Ibadan who went home to try to fix his marriage after he was stabbed once? The poor guy is in the grave yard, with the story more or less buried with him.

Same thing with that pretty Lagos banker, who died with her children right there in the house, trying to fix her marriage. This year alone I have come across 4 or 5 of such stories, and wonder when, if at all, people are going to learn.

In the western world, they are not burdened with the responsibility we have, of pretending all is well on the home front, while we slide in and out of DMs and hotel rooms, yet ‘forming’ self righteous.

We’ve been eagerly waiting for Daddy Freeze to say something and now he has, and as always it’s filled with wisdom which some agreed with or banter of foolish words, as the other half would declare.

Dot Da Genius, Jhene Aiko’s Ex Speaks Against Attempts To Slander His Name

Featured Image

Dot Da Genius speaks up against attempts by some unscrupulous elements to slander his name following his split from singer and enstranged wife, Jhene Aiko.

Aiko’s ex-husband said he had been accused of physically abusing his wife as one of the reasons the duo split, while adding he had received public threats all in a bid to slander and rubbish his name.

Although he has always been one to shy away from the spotlight, the music-producer said he felt it was his responsibility to put to rest the accusations.

Dot Da Genius did this by sharing a post on Instagram which read thus:

“In light of the public threats, false allegations, and attempts to slander my name and character, I am compelled to speak up.

Because my nature is peaceful, I’ve been silent out of respect for all involved, and to maintain my privacy.

However, I believe the truth must be heard, which is that I’ve never been violent or abusive towards any woman in my life. Such behavior is abhorrent to me and fat from how I conduct myself.

Moving forward, I will continue to focus on my family, friends, and music, and soon enough the entire truth shall come to light.

Moving forward, can every unscrupulous element let the couple divorce and live their lives in peace.

Gary Neville : Pep Guardiola Will Turn John Stones Into The Next Gerard Pique 

Featured Image

​New Man City defender John Stones can develop into a world-class defender under the guidance of Pep Guardiola in a similar fashion to Barcelona star Gerard Pique, according to Gary Neville.

“I’m delighted he’s gone to Manchester City, to Guardiola,” he said on MNF. “It’s the best club for him at the moment with the manager they have.

“It reminds me of six, seven, eight years ago, a player exposed to Guardiola. It was a young Gerard Pique. You see a lot of Stones in Pique – a person who’s not filled his shirt yet.”

“In the past six months there has been so much criticism of John Stones – about what he shouldn’t do, about how he shouldn’t play – rather than celebrating what he is, that he’s willing to take big chances at the back on the ball.

“That he’s willing to pass out from the back, get on the ball as deep as possible, bring other players in, play passes into midfield. There’s been a lot of discouragement in the past six months.

“Pique has become a monster. He’s stronger, he’s taller, he’s more experienced. He’s been encouraged to play and to be himself.

“That’s the work that’s been done with him and he’s obviously played in a fantastic team at Barcelona. Pep Guardiola will try to create that same type of team and player at Manchester City.”

Michael Phelps’ Enstranged Ex-Girlfriend Goes On Lengthy Rant About Him

Featured Image

Michael Phelps’ ex-girlfriend, Taylor Lianne Chandler, has written a lengthy post where she reveals a side of the Olympian that would seem shocking to many.

In the note which was shared on her Facebook, Chandler describes Phelps as a serial cheat who also dated Demi Rose Mawby, the escort girl who was linked to Tyga after he broke up with Kylie Jenner.

While some have consoled with her for being a victim, others opine she’s just ‘victimizing’ herself as she’s an ‘unknown’ and is hating on Micheal Phelps’ success. Many have urged her to move on and stop writing posts or giving interviews describing how much she feels the Olympian hurt her.

Chandler wrote about Michael Phelps’ and his philandering ways:

Cheated on Nicole with Carrie Prejean. That’s why they broke up! Cheated on Ami Desi with Win McMurry. They broke up! Cheated on Demi Rose Mawby with Nicole.

That’s why she posted the d**k pic and tagged Nicole. Then there was a girl from Cali, Canada, the dog walker. They all knew about Nicole and I. Then there are the escorts, stewardesses, waitresses, other swimmers, all in 2014!

I find out about Nicole from a picture taken at a wedding when he was supposed to be on a business trip for Aquasphere doing fittings for the MP line in September.

I didn’t see this picture until he was in rehab. I thought we were good, and together when he left for the Meadows. Do you see a pattern here?

Yet, I’m a liar, a hookup, a mistake. If that were true and you believe the ridiculousness of the football game hookup story why was I with him the night of the DUI?

Why did he not break up with me when he left for rehab? Ask yourself what I had to gain by lying about this when I’d kept our relationship private and referred to him on my social media as my 6’4 Body Heater?

He got a DUI and two people paid the price for it! I have been victim shamed for almost a year and a half, while he is a hero and role model.

I did absolutely nothing wrong, but in defending myself and wanting him to acknowledge the truth I’m a stalker, psycho, evil, abusive, nutcase that won’t let it go! Try walking a mile in my shoes.

Try having your whole life turned upside down and every private, ugly, embarrassing, personal moment made public. I would love to have a life, but the world defines me by him! Now with the Olympics I can’t escape him anywhere I go.

I try to make something of this mess with a book, a film and appearances. I was left little choice once I could no longer interpret because of his actions.

How do you think you promote a story and film based on what I went through with him? You post stories, do interviews, use hashtags.

He has lied to the world about everything that happened surrounding that DUI. He could have very well lied to his family, but they were there when I was there the night of the DUI. He lied to all these women.

This wasn’t a dark period after retirement, this was his life always. Seeing how strong willed and involved his mom is, do you honestly believe living a mile away she allowed him to be in bed 5 days on the brink of suicide? They were there constantly. It’s a manufactured story.

The first two days after the DUI we stayed in bed cut off from the world avoiding the media. Wake up world and stop being blinded by the gold! You have systematically had the wool pulled over your eyes for years!

Stop making me the villain. Ask him the important questions and make him accountable for his actions!

NYSC Corps Members Grumble In Oyo Over 9-Month Unpaid Allowances

Featured Image

Quite a number of serving corps members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Oyo state have begun to gripe over the failure of the state government to pay nine months’ arrears of state allowances owed them.

The affected corps members made the plea on Tuesday in Ibadan, the state capital, NAN reports.

The state government is accused of reneging to the promise it made previously to be paying the sum of N4, 000 monthly to corps members serving in the state.

Speaking in apparent dissatisfaction, Miracle Onyekponwanne, a Batch ‘B’ 2015/2016 female corper, disclosed that she had not received any payment since the inception of her service in October 2015.

She said, “People like us teaching in schools do not even have accommodation and it is supposed to be the responsibility of the school and government. So, we have to accommodate ourselves and it has not been easy.

“With the situation of things in the country now, the N19, 800 the Federal Government is giving us is not even enough. We have to transport ourselves and do other things.

“We will pass out in October, yet we have not received anything. The government should please pay us everything at once or even twice, before we pass out.”

Another female corper, Oyinkansola Omotesho, of Batch ‘B’, said:

“have not received anything at all since I started serving’’.

“It is better they tell us that they will not pay the allowance so that we remove our mind from it. We would have calculated what to use the money for but our hope are being dashed out.

“They should please be checking how they pay on the payroll because only few people received once but those of us teaching in my school has not received anything at all since 2015.”

In the same vein, a Batch ‘B’ member, Mr Meshach Omaji, said he only received two months allowance since October 2015, adding that other batches had not received any at all.

“Since I started serving in November 2015, I have only received twice. The first one was meant for December, 2015 but the second one was not stated, so I assumed it was for January 2016.

“I have not received any other one since then. Maybe I received those ones because I am serving with the state NYSC editorial department.

“Most of my colleagues have not received any since 2015.”

Also, a corps member in a secondary school in Saki, who preferred anonymity, said that the state government had only paid the December and January allowances.

Omaji, however, pleaded with the government to pay the remaining allowance.

“The money should be for accommodation but when we did not receive it, we had to source for it from parents and relations.

“These are people we should even be giving money; no matter how little, rather than them giving us,’’ he said.

Attempts made to reach the Special Adviser to the Governor on Communication and Strategy, Mr Yomi Olayinka, failed.
