PHOTOS: Tiwa Savage, Uche Jombo, Others Celebrate With Funke Akindele At Her School’s First Graduation Party
The first set of students to enrol at Funke Akindele's 'Scene one school of drama' graduated in Lagos on Thursday.
The occasion saw the likes of Uche Jombo, Eldee, Tiwa Savage, Dammy Krane, Eniola Badmus and several others who were there to show their support to the actress.
Some of the outstanding students in major courses were presented with prizes. Each of them automatically would get a prominent role in Akindele's next flick, Everybody Loves Jenifa.
LAGOS — In what is turning out to be a season of open letters, daughter of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Iyabo, has ruled out further communication with her father till death, describing him as a liar, manipulator, two-faced hypocrite determined to foist on President Goodluck Jonathan what no one would contemplate with him as president.
Senator Iyabo Obasanjo in a letter to her father accused him of having an egoistic craving for power and living a life where only men of low esteem and intellect thrive.
In the 11-page letter dated December 16, 2013 exclusively obtained by Vanguard, Iyabo accused her father of orchestrating a third term for himself as president, cruelty to family members, abandonment of children and grandchildren, and also, a legendary reputation of maltreatment of women.
Iyabo who forswore further political engagements in Nigeria denied any political motive for her missive, and described Nigeria as a country where her father and his ilk have helped to create a situation where smart, capable people bend down to imbeciles to survive. She particularly noted her experience as chairman of the Senate Committee on Health when she led the committee on a retreat appropriated for in the budget only for her to be prosecuted for it.
Iyabo, first child of the former president, started the letter titled, Open Letter to my Father with a 4th century Chinese proverb by Mencius which states: “The great man is he who does not lose his child’s heart.”
“It brings me no joy to have to write this but since you started this trend of open letters I thought I would follow suit since you don’t listen to anyone anyway. The only way to reach you may be to make the public aware of some things. As a child well brought up by my long-suffering mother in Yoruba tradition, I have been reluctant to tell the truth about you but as it seems you still continue to delude yourself about the kind of person you are and I think for posterity’s sake it is time to set the records straight.

Pedestrians passing by a building in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn last week probably thought the dancing woman was simply exercising. But police say the woman was ‘twerking’ to serve as a distraction while her partner-in-crime was inside stealing packages.
Surveillance video shows the woman twerking just outside the building for nearly an hour — only pausing when residents walked by. One resident later reported her packages missing.
Police are still searching for the suspects who made off with several packages.
Watch the video below.
Documenting breast implants and liposuction surgeries online is nothing new, but rarely do you see a black woman being so open about cosmetic surgery.
Most women who can afford to leave the country for expensive cosmetic surgeries keep their friends in the dark about how they got their new curves. Whether due to vanity or shame, they return from their “vacation” to the Dominican Republic with a plethora of lies to explain the weight loss and artificially enhanced breasts and butt (exotic diets, new personal trainer, Yoga, etc.)
Paul Walker died from "combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries"... this according to the death certificate obtained by TMZ.
The official cause of death is significant ... it means Walker wasn't killed from the impact alone. He also burned to death after the crash.
The L.A. County Coroner released Paul's cause of death earlier this month. The man who was driving the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, Roger Rodas, also died from "multiple traumatic injuries," but the Coroner did NOT list burns as a factor in his death.
Both death certificates reveal the men died quickly ... according to the doc, the time interval between the impact and their deaths was "rapid."
Both Walker and Rodas were killed in the November 30th crash in Santa Clarita, CA. The cause of the accident is still under investigation, but as we reported, officials suspect plastic bumps in the road may have caused Rodas to lose control.
It's easy to see why Columbia Records wavered on a marketing budget for Beyonce's risky new self-titled album. Rather than pay for the marketing out of her own pocket, Beyonce cut out the middleman and released her new album straight to iTunes late Friday. The hard-core CD breaks every taboo for a Grammy Award winning pop singer who built her career on family values. Beyonce takes huge risks with sexually aggressive lyrics that would make a pr0n star blush.
Several readers emailed to express their outrage. One loyal reader plans to create a Change.org petition urging Columbia Records to drop the star.
President Obama’s lies have earned him the less-than-prestigious ‘Lie Of The Year’ Award, CBS News reports.
It’s not exactly the Nobel Peace Prize, but at least Obama won’t end the year without being recognized for some small achievement.
The Johannesburg man accused of faking sign language interpretation for President Obama and other world leaders was part of a mob who burned 2 thieves to death in 2003, the Associated Press reports.
Jantjie stood less than 3 feet away from President Obama, and other world leaders, who spoke at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service last week.
One of Jantjie’s cousins and three of his friends told the AP he was among a group of men who accosted two television thieves and placed tires around their necks before setting them on fire.
Chris Brown is in trouble ... again. The judge in the Rihanna beating case has just REVOKED his probation because of the fresh assault charges filed in Washington D.C.
Brown was in court for a progress hearing. The judge felt the criminal complaint in D.C. is enough proof that Chris did NOT obey all laws ... which he's required to do while on probation
The judge did not remand Chris into custody, because hizzoner was impressed by Chris' progress in his anger management rehab. The judge will hold a hearing on the matter in February, and it's possible he could sentence Chris to time in the pokey.
The judge also ordered Chris NOT to use medical marijuana for the time being.
TMZ broke the story ... Brown was popped in Oct. for felony assault -- later reduced to a misdemeanor -- and the L.A. County Probation Dept. launched an investigation.
