The popular horror series — which stars Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy — was dropped by NBC in June, and is yet to find a new host network.

READ: Popular TV Series, Hannibal Cancelled

Hannibal had aired on NBC for 3 seasons since its inception in 2013, but since the cut, the show’s creator Bryan Fuller has been trying to find a new home for the show.

In response to a fan, Fuller revealed on Twitter that both Amazon and Netflix had turned down the chance to host the show’s 4th season.

Amazon’s decision to refuse the show is particularly surprising, as they hold the online streaming rights to the show’s first three seasons.

The WBO also had an issue with Mayweather holding the World Boxing Association (WBA) and World Boxing Council (WBC) titles at junior middleweight, as a boxer is not allowed to hold titles in different weight divisions.

“Despite affording Mr. Mayweather Jr. the courtesy of an extension to advise us of his position within the WBO Welterweight Division and to vacate the two 154-pound world titles he holds, the WBO World Championship Committee received no response from him or his legal representatives on this matter,” the WBO said on its website.

“Money”, as Mayweather is called, has been given 14 days to appeal the decision.

Wolverine Star Hugh Jackman “Is Not Allowed To Work With Angelina Jolie”, Says His Wife

Featured Image

Ladies and gents, would you insist on the people your spouses shouldn’t work with if they were in the entertainment world? Because Deborra-Lee, wife of huge Holywood star certainly would.

In fact, she has.

The actress who has been married to the wolverine star  for nineteen years(which is eternity in Hollywood)  mentioned in an interview on Today Show, that her husband can work with anyone but not Angelina Jolie.

Angelina Jolie

Jolie who is one of the sexiest women in Hollywood and who got with her husband, Brad Pitt about a decade ago while he was still married to now ex wife, Jennifer Aniston must have scared Mrs Jackman for real.

Hugh was present during the interview so this is for real and not some witty response.

Hugh’s wife is clearly protecting her husband but would you say she is going too far? Or is this all Angelina Jolie’s karma for coming in between Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston?

10 Take Home To Mama Bachelorettes In The Nigerian Entertainment Industry

Featured Image

The Nigerian entertainment Industry is currently experiencing it’s most feminist moment since its inception (whenever that was), at no point before now, did we have so many young women ruling the entertainment Industry.

You don’t agree? Argue with your Pastor.

But if you do agree, then you would probably also agree that the women on this list are some of the most bankable, most beautiful and most influential women in the Industry.

And, because this list is about the bachelorettes who are take home to mama-ish, here are ten of the young women in the entertainment industry that we assume any man would want to put a ring on.

Lilian Esoro

The Clinic Matters’ star and AMVCA nominee is one pretty lady and even a blind man wouldn’t argue.

Lilian Esoro

Pretty Lilian Esoro poses for a quick one

The Actress who is also an entrepreneur knows her stuff and that more than anything else qualified her to be on this category.

Yvonne Nelson

The Ghanaian actress found her way to this list not only because she is young, pretty, badass at what she does and a huge success, but before her career was made here on Nigerian screens and because she would have been married to a Nigerian if Iyanya wasn’t trying to be the next Collin Farell.

Ladies and gentlemen, behold Yvonne Nelson…

Yvonne Nelson

Yvonne is a fierce cat in a black blazer and pants for this shoot. 

Adesua Etomi

She might be new to your TV screens but she is undoubtedly one of the new acts to watch out for. Ms Etomi who relocated to Nigeria to pursue her acting dreams is beautiful, stylish and creative.

And pray tell, what else do you need in a woman you want to take to your mama? ehn? Nothing? Thought so too.

Adesua Etomi

Adesua Etomi dazzles in this recently released photo with her faux locs which is a current trend for stylish people

Beverly Naya

Bev might have arrived with her Oyinbo accent and tried to take over your screens a few years ago but you would have to agree that she is good and consistent at what she does.

And you see, there is nothing more appealing than a woman who is consistent in her craft and who has no apologies about the career choices she makes.

That woman is called strong, she is called Beverly Naya.

Beverly Naya

Beverly Naya stuns in a white pencil skirt and black stilettos on set for a photoshoot

Linda Ejiofor

The brilliant actress brightened up our screens when she appeared on hit show, Tinsel some years ago and a long while after her acting debut we are yet to get over her beauty, her warmness and her sweet nature.

Introducing, Nollywood’s sweetheart (after Genevieve of course), Linda Ejiofor.

Linda Ejiofor

We love this Angelina Jolie moment from Linda Ejiofor’s shoot

Seyi Shay

When she burst into the scene a few years back, a couple of people compared her music and style to Tiwa Savage but years after her first hit single, Seyi Shay has carved a niche for her craft and has proved to millions of people across Africa that she knows about this music thing, she is different from the others and she murdas every and any time.

Gents, you know your mama would love this one!

Seyi Shay

Hey Seyi Shay! The singer sparkles in this metallic skirt and mesh purple top.

Mocheddah

Mocheddah is one of the few people in the entertainment industry who have rebranded successfully and have taken their style up a notch.

The 24 year old “Bad” singer returned to the music scene a short while ago and she has not been doing badly so far.

Mocheddah

Niyola

Ms Nini is EME’s first lady and that is enough reason for her to be your first lady… or maybe not. But the talented singer who has one of the best voices in the Industry has shown us she is here to stay as she grabbed major awards last year with just a single.

And every man wants a woman who is there to stay, yeah?

Niyola

Niyola is hot on the set of her hit single, Love to love you

Yemi Alade

Yemi Alade is strong, driven and fierce, the type of woman every man wants to have beside them through life.

The type of woman who deserves to be on this list…

Yemi Alade

Yemi Alade’s ankara scarf fused with this white dress is beautiful

Chidinma

One of the alumni of the reality show, Project Fame, Chidinma Ekile, has been scandal-free, away from too much publicity and has managed to keep her head low in her highly successful career.

Chidinma Ekile is grounded and that is one quality men know their mamas would love.

APC Absolves Itself From Blame As Police Investigate Deputy Senate President Ekweremadu

Featured Image

The All Progressives Congress has stated that it has nothing to do with the invitation by police of deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu.

The Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase reportedly summoned Ekweremadu over alleged forgery of Senate rules.

READ: National Assembly: Senator Ekweremadu Wins Deputy Senate President Elections

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the APC said that it had no afore knowledge of a petition written to the police over the matter.

”However, if, as the PDP claims, the petition concerns alleged altering of the Senate’s Standing Rules on the process of electing Presiding Officers, that is a clear case of forgery which the police have a duty to investigate. Questioning the right of the police to carry out their duties in this regard amounts to intimidating the security agency.

”Forgery is a crime that is being regularly investigated by the police, and it beggars belief that such investigation will now be interpreted to mean that Nigeria is descending into dictatorship or that democracy and the enjoyment of personal freedoms are now endangered. These claims by the scaremongering PDP are far fetched and preposterous,” it said.

READ: Buhari, Tinubu Conflict On Way Forward As APC Crisis Worsens

The statement implored Ekweremadu, if truly he was innocent, to rise to the call and clear his name.

”President Muhammadu Buhari has repeatedly said that at every point, the law must be supreme and everyone must respect the law, if the nation’s democratic system is to survive. Extrapolating a police invitation of anyone, no matter his status, to mean the onset of dictatorship is itself an invitation to lawlessness and anarchy, which permeated the long but ineffective rule of the PDP.”
