BB Naija Housemates Tobi And Cee C Finally Settle Their Differences With A Hug

After four days of cold shouldering and shading, BB Naija housemates Tobi And Cee C have finally reconciled. The pair had a long talk yesterday to get to the root of the problem and finally settled their differences.

It seemed like Cee C couldn’t handle the low key silent treatment Tobi has been serving lately. Her discomfort lead to a lengthy conversation between the former partners.  They tried to iron out their differences but it seemed the allegations made ran deeper. Tobi simply wanted a sincere apology for the accusations made against him but couldn’t voice it out and Cee C couldn’t have guessed it.

The pair had earlier yesterday tried to work things out but couldn’t come to a conclusion. Cee C revealed that cheating is a big issue in her family so she does not trust men easily while Tobi just reaffirms that she needs to trust him more for things to work out between them.The pair couldn’t finish their talk because they had to prepare for their prsentation.

After their presentations last night, Cee C and Tobi excused themselves from the group and continued where they’d left off during the day. They both said their peace, with Cee C almost shedding some tears and it all was well as they hugged it out and Tobi promised to be more considerate of Cee C’s feelings.

 Watch the video of them hugging.

BB Naija 2018: Cee C And Ifu Ennada Fight Over Who Is More Endowed In The House

The BB Naija 2018 house was heated this morning when housemates Ifu Ennada and Cee C got into a heated argument about who has the best body between Cee C and Alex.

It all started when Ifu Ennada compared Cee C and Alex’s body saying Cee C has only hips but no burst while Alex is complete. This did not go down well with Cee C who called Ifu out on it.

Cee C’s partner, Lolu meanwhile had to calm Cee C down by reminding her she already has three strikes when she started using swear words, which has been banned in the house for a week.

Watch their argument.

BB Naija 2018: Miracle Wins The Friday Night Games, Making It His Third Win This Week

Tonight was the Friday Night Games and the BB Naija housemates were ready to bring their A game but at the end Miracle scooped another victory during the Arena Games after winning Head of House and the wager this week.

As the weeks go by, Big Brother increased the game’s difficulties, this time adding no less than five challenges for the housemates to complete in a record ten minutes. Big Brother had designed the game for housemates to make the best use of speed, agility and balance under pressure.

The obstacle course kept ascending, from the relatively simple one of walking on a balance beam, to running on platforms, then pushing a wheelbarrow which gave rise to a few memorable funny faces from housemates.  The next level included climbing up and over a net obstacle before crawling under a net that landed into an air mattress covered in flour and feathers.

Nothing stopped housemates from giving their best to the game. Even Nina and Lolu who had what could be described as a slippery time on the balance beam, picked themselves up really quickly and started all over again with a renewed determination.Covered in flour and feathers on the chin, face, hair, nostrils, knees and skin, exhilarated housemates were relieved that Big Brother ordered them to go take a shower.  Perhaps they may even feel a little bit grateful for Biggie’s gruelling morning fitness routines that have paid off.

From the side benches where he was seated, Miracle seemed to be riding the wave of his third success, as he was applauded by all upon Big Brother’s announcement of the winner.

Watch Miracle in action.

Nollywood Actors Not Good Enough To Feature In “Black Panther”- Bisi Alimi Says Genevieve Nnaji Can’t Act

Nollywood Actors Not Good Enough To Feature In "Black Panther"- Bisi Alimi Says Genevieve Can't ActNigerian LGBT activist, Bisi Alimi believes Nigerian actors are not good enough to feature in the Hollywood blockbuster movie,’Black Panther’.

Bisi Alimi stated this after Nigerians queried the producers for not featuring a Nollywood actor in the movie.

He wrote;

“The idea that their should have been a Nigerians actor in Black Panther is ludicrous. I am going to say this, as a matter of fact, there is no actor (male or female) in Nigeria that can act at such quality.

Black Panther was not about “screaming and shouting”, it was about “acting” and those are not the same thing. And don’t get me started at Nnaji (Genevieve Nnaji), she cannot act.

He added;

The industry can be better, but they also need to know and accept they are rubbish at the moment and then go for training, I mean like quality training. In a country that gave us Nollywood to think we don’t have a specialist drama school? It’s sad.

Korede Bello Reveals The Secret Behind His Growth In The Industry

Mavin records singer, Korede Bello, has opened up on what is responsible for his growth in the entertainment industry.

According to the Godwin crooner the secret of his growth in the entertainment industry simply lies in giving.

Korede Bello says he loves to empower people, most especially the growing population and that is the reason why he collaborated with some governmental agencies to sensitise Nigerians on the trivial issues that concern them:

“I love to help out whenever I can and I believe that giving is one sure way to advance in life. The more you give, the bigger you grow.

“Everywhere I find myself, I want to empower people. I want to be of help to my generation and that’s part of what informed my partnership with the Nigeria Police and other organisations. It is basically to correct some faulty notions that some people have about the police. Even though there may be some bad eggs, there are a lot of great and hard-working officers in the force. And we should encourage them for the services they render to the nation”

Reacting to claims that he is not paying the required attention to his studies. The handsome singer said:

“As a student, I tried my best to dedicate quality time to my studies. Even as an artiste with a very busy schedule, I made sure that my education does not suffer.”

I Am Not Engaged To Any Nigerian Entertainer – Tboss Clears The Air

Just over this weekend there was a report that Tboss could be dating music mogul and father of one, Ubi Franklin as photos of them snuggling surfaced on the internet.

The former Big Brother Naija housemate has however opened up that she is not dating anyone in the entertainment industry.

Tboss in a chat made this revelation and she at the same time talked about her life and her plans for the new year, When Tboss was asked about the rumor flying around about her dating a popular Nigerian celebrity, she responded saying;

I like to keep certain things private and my love life or relationship falls into that category.

However, the story that I am engaged to a musician or anyone else for that matter is just a rumour. I am not engaged to be married to anybody and if such happens, everyone will know.

At present, I am only focused on my brand and how to make it better.

Ah, online dating. If you’ve dated in the past 20 years, you’ve likely encountered one – or all – of the myriad dating sites in some form.

And as we’ve increasingly moved our lives online, digital dating’s finally shed the stigma it once carried, leaving people free to meet others however they choose.

Julie Spira, dating expert and CEO of cyberdatingexpert.com says it wasn’t always so easy to meet people online. She would know: she’s been helping clients find love online since 1994.

“People didn’t have mobile phones and laptops, and the process was people would go home, log on slowly, see who had written to them and write back,” she says. “The courtship process was a lot slower, so it took quite a while to get from the first interaction to actually going on a date. Plus in those days, there was a stigma associated with online dating. You did not tell people you met your spouse, or partner, or even a date online.”

As we’ve changed, so has the online dating landscape. In the years since their initial launches, the forefathers of dating sites have forged ahead on mobile while holding on to their desktop roots.

Here are our top 5 dating site picks:

1. Best for all kinds of daters: Match

IMAGE: MATCH

Before there were apps on which one could swipe right and left on a dizzying number of potential connections, there was Match. Yes, Match.com is the mother of all dating sites. Launched back in 1995, its decades in the business help it bring a ton of insight to the table for singles looking for all kinds of connections.

“Match is the family brand,” Spira says.

And with its more recent push into mobile come a few new features that have helped make the ancient site more relevant, including its very own version of Stories, popularized by Snapchat and, uh … adopted by everyone else.

Match users can shoot little videos of their day or add voiceovers to photos and post them to their profiles for other users to check out.

“Match is the family brand,” Spira says. “It’s the one where someone could see their grandmother on, and someone could see their grandson on. It has the largest critical mass, and they have done a fabulous job of keeping up with the technology.”

What you need to know:

  • It’s technically free to build a profile and browse for matches, but users who want to engage in direct messaging with their matches will have to upgrade to a paid membership, which costs on average about $20 per month. There’s also a free trial option.
  • Match users can browse on desktop and on mobile through its app.
  • Match also recently added Missed Connections which, like the app Happn, tells users who they’ve crossed paths with recently.
  • More than 25,000 new users join each day, apparently.
  • Spira says it “spans a lot of different relationship types,” from casual to serious.

2. Best for the opinionated: OkCupid

IMAGE: OKCUPID

On OkCupid, users can offer a ton of information about themselves through the site’s Match Questions. Examples include: “Would you date someone who keeps a gun in the house?” or “Should the government require children be vaccinated for preventable diseases?” The answers to these questions help OkCupid determine which members might be a good match for one another.

Of note: Per OkCupid’s own stats, liberal women in particular have luck on the site. And in 2017, the site offered users the chance to answer 50 “current events” questions that illuminate a user’s politics.

“OkCupid has been a favorite of mine for years,” Spira says. “I always liked OkCupid because they have a great critical mass and they have the thought-provoking questions that really allow you to think about how you feel about some of these issues, whether it’s politics or gun control, and how do you feel about your date’s answers. People spend a lot of time on site just perusing the questions that other people answer, and I like that. ”

What you need to know:

  • OkCupid is free for the most part, but does offer some paid upgrades for features like increased search abilities, a “free automatic boost per day during prime time,” or even the option to browse privately in “Incognito Mode.”
  • It’s available on both desktop and mobile.

3. Best for those looking to get hitched: eHarmony

IMAGE: EHARMONY

Founded in 2000 by Dr. Neil Clark Warren, eHarmony is the site for serious daters. A spokesperson for the site says it’s been used by 54 million people, and is apparently responsible for 4 percent of U.S. marriages.. Users answer a lengthy questionnaire that helps eHarmony determine what it calls a “a select group of compatible matches with whom you can build a quality relationship.”

Spira says she’s always seen eHarmony as a “matrimonial dating site.”

“That doesn’t mean you’re going to walk down the aisle, but it certainly means that you’re looking for a very serious relationship that may or may not lead to marriage. It may lead to living together or at least being in an exclusive, committed relationship.”

What you need to know:

  • While it’s free to make an account, answer questions, and see your matches, you’ll need to select a paid membership to make contact. Prices start at $19.95 per month.
  • It’s available on both desktop and through its app.
  • It’s not recommended for users looking to date casually. “eHarmony will not cater to somebody who’s looking for a casual relationship or hookup– you will never see that on eHarmony,” Spira says.

4. Best for international daters: Zoosk

IMAGE: ZOOSK

What initially began as a Facebook app developed in 2007 has grown into a company with 35 million users in more than 80 countries.

“Zoosk is fun and flirty,” Spira says.

Rather than asking its user for dating questions, Zoosk picks dates for its users based on a user’s on-site activity. If you shoot a message to Jake Doe, for example, Zoosk says it’ll use that action to determine which types of profiles to show you going forward.

“Zoosk is fun and flirty,” Spira says. “It does cater to a younger crowd – more of a millennial crowd.”

What you need to know:

  • Zoosk is free to sign up, but you’ll need a paid subscription to interact with other users. The company also uses its own form of currency called Zoosk coins that are available for purchase. Daters can use these for features like adding a “boost” to their own profiles in search or sending another user a “virtual gift.”
  • Users can browse the site on both desktop and mobile.

5. Best mostly-free site: Plenty of Fish

IMAGE: PLENTY OF FISH

Plenty of Fish, sometime styled as POF, boasts 4 million daily active users, with 65,000 new users each day apparently, and claims users send 1 billion messages per month. After registering for POF, hopeful daters take a personality test that then helps POF determine what they call, “Your Relationship Needs.” Basically, it’s a way to make sure users know what they want from their love lives, and to ensure that it serves users with other profiles that meet that criteria.

One unusual quirk: The site recently launched a feature that allows users to message others through Google Home.

Says Spira: “They have a large user base, are a free site, and are very popular.”

What you need to know:

  • POF is pretty much entirely free, but does offer upgrades. Like Zoosk, POF offers “tokens” that let users “highlight” their profiles so that they stand out to other users, send a message that goes straight to the top of their inboxes, or send a “Super Yes” to users they’re particularly interested in.
  • It has both a desktop site, and an app.

Alright, daters – get your beautiful faces out there.

My Music More Important To Me Than My Dressing – Simi

Singer, Simi has said her major focus is on her music, while every other thing is secondary, PunchNG reports. She reacted to some comments by fans online that her fashion style is below par. She stated,

“I believe that everybody is entitled to their opinions. Some people may say that they don’t like my dress, shoes or any other thing. I don’t find that surprising or strange because there are also a lot of dresses and shoes that I don’t like. I like to be comfortable in whatever I wear and that is what dictates my outfits.

“A lot of people have expressed their views about my dress sense on social media. Sometimes, I ‘humour’ them. You can express yourself on my page but don’t be rude or insulting. Some of the people, who make those comments, are just full of hate and they just go all around the Internet, looking for where to spread their hate. I am comfortable in my own skin and I just want to keep making good music and connect with my true fans.”

Simi also shared her experience of being the chief bridesmaid at her mother’s second wedding some weeks ago, she said, “It was a wonderful experience. Seeing my mother so happy was something I definitely enjoyed. I wish her and her husband best of luck in their marital journey.”

Speaking on the success of her sophomore album, Simi, she said, “My last album, generated a lot of amazing responses and it really humbled me. It truly pays for one to be consistent and stay true to your roots. The album contains songs for everybody and different moods and I’m happy that people are still discovering messages from the album.”

Too Much Pressure On Me, It Is High Time For Me To Get Married – Falz

Falz revealed his plans for marriage during a chat with Sunday Scoop. Falz said,

“In recent past, people have been putting me under a lot of pressure to get ready. When Banky W and Adesua got married last year and it almost broke the Internet, it put a lot of pressure on bachelors like me. Everybody is getting married; so, I think it’s high time for me.”

Sharing one of his toughest experiences in life, Falana said,

“In November 2013, I had a terrible accident. It was a near-death experience and I was in the vehicle with my management team. The accident was caused by an armed robbery. We were on the highway when suddenly the car was shot at. The driver was killed and we ended up in a ditch. I sustained injuries and the visible scars on my body are from that day.

“I really thought it was the end, especially when the driver died and his foot was still on the throttle, making the car to continue moving. As the car was about to crash, I just covered my face and brace for impact. I thought that at least, one should die as a fine boy.

“After the crash, the armed robbers came and ransacked all the bags in the car, looking for money. Today, I continue to remember that incident and I know that God kept me alive for a reason.”
