Beauty Entrepreneur Tara Fela-Durotoye & Music Star Timi Dakolo cover Y! Magazine’s Celebration Issue
"They started gathering students into groups outside, then they opened fire and killed one group and then moved onto the next group and killed them. It was so terrible. They came with guns around 1a.m. and went directly to the male hostel and opened fire on them. The college is in the bush, so the other students were running around helplessly as guns went off and some of them were shot down.”
The gunmen stormed the hostels in two double-cabin pickup all-terrain vehicles and on motorcycles, and were dressed in military camouflage. They attacked 4 male hostels but avoided the only hostel reserved for girls. Swords and knives were used to kill at least 30 male students. Some corpses that were found were without heads while others had heads hanging to the bodies. Wailing parents and relatives were at the Sani Abacha Specialist Hospital mortuary in Damaturu this morning to identify their loved ones. This can't continue. This government has to do something about the situation.

Its "un-popular" news that a Kenyan shopping mall was attacked in Nairobi, leaving scores dead and many un-accounted for. The Kenyan government claims to be in control of the Westgate Shopping Centre - however, there may be fear of some hostages still being kept by the Al-shabab movement.
Going back to my talk with this bright young man (obviously ignorant of how Africa as a whole is run by its independent governments), He states, "These "islamists" are f**cking nuts"... He asks, "what is the Kenyan government doing about it? So many lives lost" (this was during the live broadcast on what was going on at the westgate mall). He also asks about the Boko Haram in my country if it still goes on and I sigh before I even attempt to answer any of them.
Its generally saddening that scours of people are being murdered in cold blood and the presidents (at least the president of Nigeria), can be making amusing joke offers to Kenya to help them fight terror when less than a fortnight to the Kenyan attacks (in fact less than a few hours), nine artisans (official number *sigh*) were killed in Gudu District of abuja and some terrorist attacks recently without the President acting "presidential" - with him even jetting off to the New York Exchange to ring closing bells for the American stock market while his country was on fire.
I don't blame my learned Tanzanian friend for his vexed mood and his cursing and I join him using foul words in referring to the governing team of my nation and many other african nations as a f*cking nut-head colloquy of imbeciles!
Still we continue to ask what are the African Governments doing? At least my African government! What can we as a people do? We put these retards in power (if you voted against them, well done, if you did for them it remains your un-reserved rights and if you didn't vote at all you are a major part of the bull-crap that is making our system fail).
For people like me, lets continue to write and speak up. Lets continue to interact with brilliant Africans in the diaspora and try as much as possible to be the change or create the atmosphere that will bring about change in our countries, albeit continent.

It feels so good to be a year older, feels bad to see grey running coming up on my hair.. Lol.. But still I'm thankful for a very massive +1 birthday :D.
For those that e-mailed, texted, tweeted, called, etc to wish me a happy birthday, I'm thankful and I promise to keep writing albeit for you guys. As long as I have even just one reader, it keeps me motivated knowing someone out there reads this.
Anyway, in next recent posts I'll be talking about new cultures and changing lanes.. Keep reading and God bless y'all.

'It was very sexy and I like that. At first I thought, ''Okay, let’s just do topless'' ...but, again, my wife and her friends were like, ''No way…go all the way.'' I think we definitely pushed the envelope,' he said.Well, a groupie recently claimed that Robin and Paula have an open relationship so may be that's why she's encouraging it.

Nursing officer-in-charge Mary Marumbu said the babies and their mother were in stable condition and ready to be discharged. The father of the babies, a 16-year-old boy, is said to have taken off on learning that the girl had given birth to triplets. The teen is also a school dropout and does menial jobs. The arrival of the triplets is said to have distressed him.
“He has no ability to take care of the babies even if he was here. We are grateful to the government for scrapping off maternity fees because I will be free to go home once discharged. I would have been detained here if I had been asked to pay,” the teenage mother said.
