Jang, Amaechi clash again

I am of the opinion that the press should stop disturbing   the Nigerian public with the inability of the state governors to conduct a mere election of 35 persons. They all have shown that they are not true democrats-both the person that changed the rule to suit him by being the umpire in an election in which he is a major contender, and the person who failed to accept the outcome of an election simply because he lost. They are not the best the country can afford. I want to suggest the proscription of Nigeria Governors’ Forum  for it is of no value to an ordinary Nigerian. The forum is self-serving and their ongoing fight is over the nation’s money. Enough of all these distractions.

Clash between Goldie & J Martins after he disrupts her video shoot in SA

There's serious bad blood right now between two music stars: Goldie and J Martins. It's a long story, but I'll try to make it short. Goldie invited J Martins to South Africa in November to appear in the video of a song they did together called Give It To Me. J Martins asked for business class. Goldie said she couldn't afford it. J Martins agreed to come reluctantly. Then he told Goldie to pick him up at the airport. Goldie sent someone instead. J Martin refused to follow the man Goldie sent to the airport to pick him up, saying he didn't know the man and didn't want to be kidnapped (which makes sense).
