The Nigerian forward went down after a challenge from behind by Kim Bo-kyung in first-half stoppage time, with Marko Arnautovic scoring from the spot, but Peter Whittingham equalised with a penalty of his own in the second half. Cardiff manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said his players had been “incensed” by the penalty won by Odemwingie

Actress Nia Long Goes Nude For Allure Magazine Cover
Popular Hollywood star actress, Nia Long posed nude for Allure Magazine’s latest edition, and this is what she said about it.

“Why I’m So Short” – Nollywood Actor, Chinedu ‘Aki’ Ikedieze Talks About His Nature, Alter-Ego, Career & More!

Award winning comic actor, Chinedu Ikedieze, a.k.a Aki, had a tough time fielding questions from school children at the ongoing World Book Capital event in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
During the ‘Celebrities Read to Children’ segment of the event, at the Royal Banquet Hall of Hotel Presidential on Tuesday, one of the pupils in attendance, a youngster of about eight years, sent the guests rocking with laughter when he asked, “Why is Aki so short?”
Barely concealing his embarrassment, Aki patiently explained to the pupil that he was created that way. “If you look around, you will see that some people are tall and others are short, even shorter than I am. I am short because God has created me this way,” he said.
Meeting the actor for the first time, some of the pupils were so excited they literally pelted him with more questions. They wanted to know his actual age, if his alter-ego – Osita Iheme a.k.a Pawpaw was his blood brother and how he got the pseudonym, Aki.
To the youngster who wanted to know his age, he said, “I am a full adult. All I can say is that I am above 20 years. I am in my 30s. When I was as young as you, one of my favourite actors was an American known as Gary Coleman. He was so short that I used to think he was a boy. I never knew he was a man.”
Regarding his relationship with Pawpaw, Aki told his young ‘tormentors’ that fate brought them together. “I am from Abia State and he is a native of Imo State. We never knew each other before until fate brought us together through Nollywood,” he said.

The actor advised another pupil, who wanted to know how he could become a Nollywood actor, to get good education first. He said, “The door to Nollywood is wide open and ready to admit anybody. But you need to go to school first. If you go to school, you will have a solid foundation. Most young people that are just going into Nollywood are not aware that they have to give 70 per cent of their time to education and only 20 per cent to acting. Education will help you become good actors and actresses.”

“My Mum Advised Me Against Posing Nude” – Boobs Goddess, Cossy Orjiakor Talks Career, Family, Marriage & More!

Her boobs may be one of the most frequent objects in the media; Nollywood actress and singer Cossy Orjiakor says she has her restraints and moral lines she cannot cross.
This is the impression she gives in an interview with Punch Nigeria on Monday. According to her, she cannot pose or act nude in any movie. Indeed, Even when reminded that her big breasts appear to always be ‘on air’, she tries to convince one that the essential portion of the boobs – her nipples – are always concealed.
But she has a reason why she will not throw off her dress for any fee: Her mother, with whom she says she maintains a very cordial relationship, has warned her against doing so.
She says, “I have a cordial relationship with my followers on social media and I block people who say negative things about me because I just don’t like the negative vibes. So if people see a picture I took by 2 am and see it is offensive, then it is okay by me. Truth is I have a very good heart and am very emotional to people I care about. But no matter what I do, I always remember my mother’s advice that, no matter what I do, I must never go nude in a movie or outside the set. I can’t do anything for money if my comfort is at stake.”
The light-skinned act who embraced controversy with her half erotic show in Fuji artiste, Obesere’s, music video, Apple Juice, has not been active in Nollywood in recent years. She delved into music and says she is doing well despite the fact that she has not been featuring in big shows. She adds that she shares music experience with her mother.
“My mum actually has a first degree in music from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka and a master’s degree in Mass Communication. I grew up amidst pianos and guitars in my parents’ house and more so, my mum sings,” Cossy says.
“I have a studio in the house and I have been told I have a good voice. My mum did not contribute to the scoring of the songs on my album even though we were supposed to work on a song together. She works with the Immigration Service so she has no time.  But when we eventually do, it has to be a very good song, probably a mother and daughter song.”
The busty actress that stared in 2009 film, Itohan, says the stress of acting is too much compared to the money producer’s offer.
“I don’t know about the other actors who say they get millions and billions but I remain a realistic person. I can never go on the set of a movie if I don’t know the producer no matter the money involved. I’m not doing music to compete with anybody and I am not really looking to get all of these big endorsements because I am in music for the love of it. Yes money is part of the reason why I am doing music but during my launch I know how much my friends and relatives paid to get my album. Even before the video came out I had made all the money I spent 100 per cent over. I have been on tour in Lagos, Abuja and south Africa and the reception is always cool. If I take pictures and talk about the places I have been to, the whole city will run mad.”
Despite the bad press and negative publicity she regularly gets,  the actress’ life  can be likened to an open book. She has shared pictures of her parents and tastefully furnished apartment in Lekki on Twitter, her broken sex toy, among many other personal raunchy details. How do men relate to her in this light and does she have any hope of hooking any of them?
“Most men notice my boobs when they meet me for the first time,” she declares. “They touch each other, arguing whether or not they are real. It will take a man with a lot of guts to walk up to me and approach me. But I believe in marriage and hope to eventually marry and have kids of my own.”

Hollywood Actress, Cameron Diaz Looks Stunning At 41 On The Cover Of Glamour Magazine [PHOTOS]

Cameron Diaz is Glamour Magazine's new cover star, and i think everyone'll agree, she's the ultimate girl's girl. From her thoughts on vanity, women of Hollywood, and loving her female friends, Cameron Diaz shares her thoughts on it all! Plus what she really hates about the opposite sex.
At 41-years-old, Cameron Diaz is definitely not short of a BFF or two, and given half the chance we'd have her plaiting our hair and watching movies around hers, but female friendships are really important to her.
"I love women - and I don't believe in female jealousy. I don't feel like it's a good feeling to have. My parents always told me that whatever someone else had - in all areas - it wasn't mine to be entitled to. That all I can do is the best that I can do - and that what's most important is whether I can do better at what I'm doing." She said
But has she ever been attracted to a woman?
"I think women are beautiful - absolutely beautiful. And I think that all women have been sexually attracted to another woman at some point. It's natural to have connectivity and an appreciation for the beauty of other women."
Cameron, who is starring in “The Other Woman” this summer, alongside Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, has already started to notice a change in the way people treat her, she said: "Now that I'm getting older, people have stopped asking me about proving myself and started asking me whether I'm worried that I won't get any interesting roles any more - when, actually, older roles are the best roles for a woman. The ingĂ©nues are not getting the interesting roles now - they weren't really ever. They were just being objectified."

An Open Letter From A Fanatical P-Square Fan [Must Read]

My Dear Peter, Paul & Jude
It is so disheartening to hear of the rumored split and as much as I don’t want to hear that P-Square has gone their separate ways, I’m an adept fan and supporter of the P-Square brand from the days when you had your first album in cassette till now that you’ve taken over Africa and the world.

I painstakingly write this with heavy heart not because it will reach you directly but for the world to know that I have gone through your singles, albums and videos all over again and I’m yet to convince myself of a world without P-Square – this goes for many other Nigerian music lovers.

The most torturing part of the subject is the silence of Peter, because the Mr.P we are used to should have sent some kind words across to the undying fans all over the world while Paul who rarely speaks, wrote through his preferred Facebook account and denounced the rumors while announcing shows in Durban and St. Lucia recently, but both statements disappeared from his wall shortly after.

It is inevitable that both partners would have had issues in the past both as brothers and importantly as business partners and what makes this issue irreconcilable remains blurred.  While some speculate that the cause of the issue is power tussle, some say it may be as a result of your recent alteration of marital statuses. Will you both bury your business empire that took years of hard labour to build over an issue that could be resolved over a round table of tea and positive energy?

With an impressive blend of Peter, the natural entertainer and trademark dance leader as well as a natural ladies man and Paul, the front-burner singer/entertainer combined with the organized and analytical big brother, Jude Okoye who leads the group with untiring efforts to greater heights, what more is needed for a flourishing music group? What is P-Square without good dancing, without smooth duet vocals, without high quality videos? 
The question clearly answers itself, perhaps the name will be altered too.
Kindly settle your ‘little’ dispute away from the curious media waiting to get the confirmation of your split by resolving and getting back on track while continuing to make your late mother as proud of you as many Nigerians are. However, if for any reason this ‘little’ dispute cannot be amicably resolved, a solo career by any of you may fail miserably. Personally, I’ll not purchase a MR. P album or a RUDEBOY album - I’m only waiting for the sixth album from PSQUARE….

God bless Peter and Paul Okoye
Long Live P-Square
Your biggest fan,
Odinaka.

End Of An Era: Nokia Phone Division Set To Be Renamed Microsoft Mobile [Report]

Ahead of the closure of Nokia-Microsoft deal before the end of April, a leaked letter in Finland shows that Nokia Oyj will be soon renamed as Microsoft Mobile Oy.
According to a report on wmpoweruser.com, a website that tracks developments related to Windows Phone, in a letter Nokia has told its sellers in Finland that the deal with Microsoft will close soon. Both Microsoft and Nokia had said in March that the deal would close by the end of April.
"Please note that upon the close of the transaction between Microsoft and Nokia, the name of Nokia Corporation/Nokia Oyj will change to Microsoft Mobile Oy. Microsoft Mobile Oy is the legal entity name that should be used for VAT IDs and for the issuance of invoices," the company reportedly said in the leaked letter.
Oyj is a Finnish abbreviation for a "public stock company" while the Oy is a term for a "corporation".
The closure of the deal doesn't really mean the end of Nokia. Instead, it means an end to Nokia as the world knows it. Microsoft is buying Nokia's mobile phones division, including the teams that make feature phones. But it is not buying the divisions that are responsible for network equipment business and here maps. The company left behind by Microsoft will also keep rights to its name Nokia though Microsoft has bought the license to use the Nokia brand name for 10 years as part of its $7.2 billion deal.
Additionally, Microsoft has bought rights to use Lumia and Asha brand names. As part of the deal, Nokia has also agreed to not make a smartphone or phone using Nokia brand before the end of 2015.
While the name Nokia will be replaced by Microsoft Mobile in the coming days in Finland and possibly in other countries — not much will change for Nokia's business partners in the immediate future.
"Under the terms of the sale, Microsoft will assume all rights, benefits and obligations of the Nokia Devices and Services business, including Nokia's agreements with suppliers, customers and partners which pertain to the Devices and Services business. Therefore, the purpose of this letter is to update you that the current terms and conditions that you have with the Devices and Services business will not change," Nokia notes in the leaked letter.

“My Experience Being In Love With A Guy Who Is Not In Love With Me” — Toolz Shares Relationship Experience & Advice [READ]

Beat FM's Bootylicious OAP and talk show host,  Tolu ‘Toolz’ Oniru, who has nicknamed herself ‘Africa’s media Mogulette’, has a drove of admirers that cut across every class of the society. If her faultless eloquence doesn’t get to you, then her provocative curves are sure to nail you.
The OAP shared one of her experiences on her website last week and it sounds like a good tip as any on relationships. In the article titled: ’Thou shall not lie to yourself’, she shares the tale of how she was in love with a guy that wasn't in love with her , but liked her enough to keep her as a friend.

Her words:” We met during my final year of university; he had just moved from Houston and didn't know a lot of people in London, and after a few random conversations about course work, he asked me out. Our first date was amazing, and after about a month of seeing each other a few times a week, I was almost certain he was ‘the one’.
“After dancing around the issue for a week or two, I was finally brave enough to bring up the ‘where are we’ issue. His exact words were ‘I really like you Tolu, but I'm not looking for a relationship right now’. I had to take a moment to mentally pick up the fragments of my broken heart, and then I smiled at him and said ‘No worries, it’s okay’

“I did, however, learn a valuable lesson from this – one of the worst things you can do in life is lie to yourself, and potentially rob yourself of what you truly deserve. Whether it is a relationship, a job, whatever situation it is, do your best to be honest with yourself. If a situation isn't giving you what you need, don’t fool yourself, have enough self-respect to say ‘I'm not getting what I want from this situation… and I honestly won’t be able to settle.”

“My Failed Marriage Distract My Creativity” – Nollywood Actor, Saheed Balogun Talks About Failed Marriage, Career & More

Kwara State born Nollywood Yoruba Actor, Saheed Kolawole Balogun who started acting in 1981 and has over the years, worked with most of the great actors and actresses in Nollywood. He recently spoke to ThisDay Live on his career and marital squabbles.
See excerpts from the interview below and share your thoughts:

I have always wanted to be an actor...
Yes, from the word go, I knew acting was the way to go for me. For me, acting is a spirit. It’s a passion. Acting is me. I am acting, it’s my dream. Someone once said to me that since I know a lot of politicians, I should be a contractor and I said there is a difference between governance, construction and creativity. So, because Governor Aregbesola is my god-father and Remo Adikwu Bakare is my god-mother doesn’t automatically mean I should be collecting contracts.
If you look at it, entertainment is too broad. There’s music, acting, reality shows, compeers, and so much more. So, it’s too broad and I am still exploring it. I really don’t have time to start thinking if anything else away from entertainment. Today I speak Yoruba, Igbo, English and Hausa languages fluently and I am planning to learn French also.

Marital talks distract my creativity….
Well, the situation is that marital talks distract my creativity. Too much talk on this marriage issue did not allow people see what I can deliver in terms of my talent and creativity. It’s not as if I’m shy to talk about it, but the truth is that we have too many other burning issues to talk about rather than dwell on this marriage issue. And people keep saying people want to know what really happened. Well, help me tell the people that want to know that I’ll rather talk of business and money instead of marriage. I want to move forward and talk about how to tackle piracy and move our industry forward.

Dealing with female admirers….
I handle them the way they should be handled. It is not every female that says they love your films really wants to date you. So, I take them the way they come, because in anything you do, women are the first set of people to appreciate you. They can ruin and make you. So, appreciate them and give them the respect they deserve. I just take them the way they come.

Practical ways to deal with piracy…
I’ve said it several times. We have senators and House of Representatives members in charge of entertainment. What laws have they passed regarding the industry in the last 12 years?

All these 33 associations we have should leave ego aside and come together so that we can have one voice and collectively request for that legislation that can save our industry, instead of going one after the other, to lobby for peanuts.

“Please Don’t Break Up” - DJ Jimmy Jatt, Tonto Dikeh & More Celebrities Pleads With The Okoye Families For P-Square

Celebrities and fans of the Nigerian singing duo, Peter and Paul Okoye, P-Square, have appealed to them to reconcile whatever differences they might have and shelve their planned break-up
Celebrity legendary DJ Jimmy Jatt, said: “You are brothers. You have no choice. You just have to stay together.
“It is normal for siblings to have issues, but please do not let it tear you apart. I believe in you, I have great faith you will remain together.”

Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, who is a close friend of the twins, likened the impending break-up to death and implored their wives to do something to salvage the situation
She said: “When you break up, your whole identity is shattered. It is like death. The love of twins is undisputed, Paul and Peter. You have been together for years, making great songs like Senorita, Do me, Story, More than a friend, Omoge mi, Busy body, Alingo, Personally, Testimony; the list is endless! Why break it up now?
“Please learn. Two heads are better than one. Mrs Lola and Anita, they say a woman makes a home. This is the time to show the world that both of you are women with great substance, which I believe you are,” she appealed in a post on Instagram.

For days now the rumor mill has been ablaze with news that the singing duo has gone their separate ways over issues many have come to tag ‘irreconcilable differences’. Since news of the crisis broke, fans have taken to every known social media page to beg the twins to stay together.
It would be recalled that some of the reasons Peter wants out is that he claims his brothers do not respect his wife and that their brother, Jude, has been disrespecting Lola for years.
This, according to reports, prompted his packing out of Squareville mansion in Omole where he lived with his brothers for years to Lekki Phase 1 with his wife Lola Omotayo and their children.

Actress Whoopi Goldberg Praises Marijuana Smoking On Her Debut As An Online Pot Columnist

Oscar-winning actress, comedienne and talk-show host, Whoopi Goldberg sang the praises of marijuana inhaled through a pocket vaporizer on Thursday as she made her debut as an online pot columnist.
“The vape pen has changed my life. No, I’m not exaggerating. In fact, her name is Sippy.” wrote Goldberg, 58, about her pocket vaporizer on “The Cannabist,” a pot-friendly website run by the Denver Post newspaper in Colorado.
The Rocky Mountain state was the second in the United States, after Washington in the Pacific Northwest, to legalize marijuana for recreational use.
But Goldberg opted to focus on how pot, inhaled through Sippy, has helped her cope with massive headaches induced by glaucoma, an eye disorder suffered by more than three million Americans that can potentially lead to blindness.
“It helps my head stop hurting, and with glaucoma your eyes ache, and she takes the ache out. It’s wonderful,” she said.
“The high is different, too. It feels like a gentle, warm breeze at the beach. It’s like someone undoing a vise grip, very slowly. It’s not overpowering, and I’m certainly not looking for that high high. I’m looking for relief.”
But in a country where, at the federal level, marijuana is classified as an illegal drug on a par with heroin, Goldberg said Sippy’s compact proportions helps maintain discretion.
“I’m respectful when I’m in a city that may not understand what I have, so I don’t flaunt her…. She’s easy and discreet to use, and for folks like myself who use marijuana medicinally, it’s ideal,” she said.

The sale, possession and consumption of cannabis for medicinal purposes — though not approved by the US Food and Drug Administration, is legal in 21 states. Maryland on Monday was the latest to join the growing list.

“We Must Imbibe The Spirit Of love, Wherever We May Come From” – Ex Vice President, Atiku Abubakar Pens Easter Message To Nigerians [Read]

Former Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, sent this Easter message through his official facebook account to join Christians in the celebrations of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Read below and share your thoughts:

“As we celebrate the Christian season of Easter, I would love to enjoin Christians, and indeed all Nigerians, to internalize the spiritual gains and benefits of the season for an improved society. This is the only path to enthroning a Nigeria where the basic human rights of the rich and poor are respected and upheld, and where citizens can dwell in peace and safety.
We need to be our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers and, above all, make sacrifice an integral part of our existence. That is the only way the sacrifice and life’s lessons of Jesus Christ will make meaning in our own daily lives and the life of our nation.
The message of Easter is love. Unconditional love for each other, not as people from different tribes or places of birth, not as Christians or Muslims, but as members of a commonwealth of humanity. We must love each other as Nigerians first.
The ongoing security challenges in our country are saddening, but they also provide an opportunity for us to come out as one people and one nation, to stand together against any persons or forces, which may seek to divide us.
As Nigerians, we must continue to contribute our quota to national security, by reporting any suspicious activity to the police.

Until we begin to care for one another and to realize that every single human life is precious in the eyes of God, Nigeria will never actualize its destiny as a great nation capable of playing a leading role in the world.”
