Drama as Popular Herbalist storms church to collect his Juju back from pastor

The herbalist and his crew disrupted activities in the church while telling the pastor to return the Juju he collected from him.
In a video that has gone viral, Kwaku Bonsam was heard saying “I told you to be patient” but it was not certain if he was speaking directly with the pastor, who was totally confounded by the unexpected move of the herbalist.
In case you don’t know who Kwaku Bonsam is, in the year 2014 he was at war with Nigeria and Africa’s most popular seer, Prophet T.B Joshua, where he vowed to expose the Nigerian cleric and chase him out of Ghana.
Recently he stated in an interview that he has pastor-clients across the African continent – About 1700 of them – and they approach him for different charms to boost membership in their churches, Pulse NG reports.
“Over 1, 700 pastors and so called men of God from different parts of Africa have approached me, seeking powers to perform miracles, including Prophet T.B Joshua from Nigeria. He is my boy. I challenge him to come out and deny this.
Apart from the pastors, many prominent business people and celebrated church founders in Africa frequent my shrine for my services and if they deny, I am going to name them.”
Bonsam, who operates from a shrine at Sa-Peiman, a village on the outskirts of Nsawam in east Ghana, said his god is called Kofi-Kofi and provides him with supernatural powers that are desperately needed by pastors from all walks of life.


How A Widowed “Akara” Seller Became A Landlord In Lagos – Lady Reveals

A lady took to twitter to narrated how a widowed lady who sells bean ball (akara), puff-puff, pap, fried yam is now a landlady of two 3-bedroom flats and still lives in a one room (face-me-I-slap-you) apartment. The lady who is a banker said the woman’s husband passed away some years back and the woman could not provide for herself and her five kids.
Read below the inspirational story of how the woman was able to make a living and also own a house.
” There’s a woman who lives two streets away from where I stay, her husband passed on years back. On my way back from work one day, I stopped at the suya spot close to my house to buy suya when this woman approached me & said she wanted to talk to me. After buying the suya, we both went to the house. She explained how rough things have been for her since her husband left & how her little kiosk wasn’t able to cater for her & her 5kids. She came to see if there was a way I could help with a loan of 50k payable in 3 months.
Inside I smiled; cos she sees me dress in suit & head out to work everyday she must assume my dad owns the bank & I can influence policy & get them to give a loan to a non-customer. Long serving customers find it difficult accessing loan’s let alone someone without an account. I told her I would get back to her in a day or two. I discussed it with husband when he returned & we decided to help her. The following day I sent someone to her place with cash & she showed up minutes later to come say thank you.
Few weeks later she shut down her kiosk on the street and moved further to the main road, picked a spot & started selling akara, yam, pufpuf, agege bread & ogi. She would head out very early cos I always see her on my way to work as early as 6/6.30am. In the evenings on my way back I would see her still there but this time with her kids. One Saturday she comes to the house to return the loan. She then says she wants me to help her with opening an account. I promised to get her account opening forms, guide how how to fill it & told her to go return it to the branch nearest to the house.
Few months later she pays us a visit, says she will hardly be at her spot as she will be spending time at a building site just after ikotun-egbe. Building, I asked? She said they have had the land for a very long time & she now wants to start building from the proceeds of her akara sales. Akara seller started constructing a one storey building meanwhile every morning I would wear suit, head to work & be called madam! 😢 We chatted & I wished her all the best. She eventually finished the first floor & stopped.
She visited to tell me she had finished the 1st floor so I asked if she was going to move & she said no! That she was going to put in a tenant since its a 3 bedroom flat, that whatever rent the tenant pays, she would use it to continue work on the top floor. Meanwhile she was still running her akara business with her kids. I asked why she wasn’t moving & why she preferred being a tenant in a face-me-i-slap-you apartment. She listed a few things that made me marvel at her street wisdom; she said the location where the house is isn’t good enough for her to transfer her akara business to.
That her current location, there are many primary/secondary schools around. So children on their way to school buy akara/pufpuf/yam etc from her daily. That there are bars close by that sell fish/cowtail peppersoup & they buy her ogi daily and i shouldn’t forget the bus stop where her spot is close to, many workers going or on their way back patronise her.
So she can’t afford to move from that spot. So she would rather finish her building & rent both flats out using the proceeds to pay rent at her small place while maintaining her akara business. She mentioned how beans/flour/corn/firewood sellers all give her credit & she pays end of the week. She said it would be difficult creating such business relationship in a new place. Akara seller turned to house owner in front of me.


I can’t marry, I’m a man – Ex HIV/AIDS ambassador Joyce Dzidzor Mensah

A former HIV/AIDS ambassador in Ghana, Joyce Dzidzor Mensah has declared she is a man, and so it will not be possible for her to get married to another man. Joyce, in a post on her Facebook page, said that as a ‘man-woman’ it would be outright impossible for her to have a working relationship with another man.
She wrote;
“Marriage is not meant for everyone. Especially, some of us who are men in women body. Cool to have a boyfriend who stays very far from me and see each other in a while than to live together,”
She added;
“Two men cannot live in one room as husband and wife. It will not work. Check yourself and see if truly you’re a complete woman or the male hormone in you is much greater than the female hormone before you jump into marriage with your fellow man.
Dzidzor concluded;
“I don’t like anyone to control me. I don’t know how to wear ladies shoes. I don’t know how to hold a ladies bag. Who has ever seen me with ladies bag? I don’t know how to fix artificial nails and eyelashes.  I could go on and on. But I’ll end it here…Marriage is complicated,” 
Joyce, who has been married three times, might have just realised marriage is not her thing

‘I have no hand in Naira Marley’s Arrest’ Ruggedman Says On Social Media

ruggedman naira marley arrest As we’ve heard all along, Ruggedman had previously been in a beef with Naira Marley, considering his songs that are allegedly ‘promoting Yahoo business’ in the country. Ruggedman previously slammed Naira Marley for this, and this caused a whole lot of controversy between the fans of both artistes.
There was also a time when Davido called out Naira Marley and Ruggedman to reconcile, but some days after, Naira Marley, alongside Zanku master, Zlatan, were arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Comission (EFCC).
ruggedman naira marley arrest
Many fans and followers suspect Ruggedman for reporting Naira Marley due to his previous allegations against the artiste. In addition, Ruggedman had said he was happy that Naira Marley got arrested. This obviously flared up suspicion from people. However, he clears their doubts by sharing this post:
My fellow Nigerians and the Distinguished members of the Press,
I have read and heard all sorts of comments pertaining to the Naira Marley case and seen the misinformation making the rounds which is quite unfortunate to say the least.
I do not know Naira Marley personally, the same way I do not know the over 300 Nigerians I have gotten justice for against police brutality. I do it because it is who I am.
All I did was caution a young artist, who has influence, against making utterances about an issue that by global standard is considered a crime.  I believe correcting this was the way to go as an elder, but got insulted for this even by those being misled.
I never responded to Naira Marley’s invectives nor those of his fans, same way I have not responded to any of the negative comments from social media.
I note that saying I was “happy in a way” about his arrest has evidently frayed some nerves and for that I apologise. It was in hope that it would serve as deterrent for persons who might consider the said ills or need to make a u-turn. It by no means was intended to wish for his downfall. It perhaps was not a good choice of word in hindsight. I do not look forward to anyone’s downfall but rather hope we all learn from the situation.
I hereby state categorically that I had nothing to do with his arrest. We all must recall that he glorified fraud on a public platform where security agencies like the Police, NDLEA and EFCC are also on. I am sure they saw his posts and captions the same way we all did. I, however, was the one that cautioned him. I guess this was what led all the darts and arrows my way as a literal mortal retribution to my person.
Despite the disrespect to my person, I got nothing against him and only longed for him to be discerning and utilise his position of influence appropriately.
May God bless you all and yes that includes those wishing me evil and threatening me. Nothing will change who I am and I will keep you all in my prayers.


Wow! Tyra Banks Recreating This Bikini Look Is The Best 22 Year Challenge

tyra banks swimwear 22 yearNow 45 years old, top class model and media personality, Tyra Banks has recreated the look from 22 years ago. In 1997, she covered Sports Illustrated magazine, wearing a red and pink polka dot bikini. She copies that same look 22 years after, and now, instead of following the ’10-year challenge’, she breaks boundaries with her 22-year challenge.
Remember the 10 year challenge every one was doing on social? The one where you posted a photo of yourself now next to a photo of yourself 10 years ago?
Well, I guess this is my @si_swimsuit 22 year challenge. Scroll the pic to see. But to me, it’s not just about what I’m looking like. It’s about what I’m FEELING like. Back then, I knew I had a plan to do more than model. I knew I wanted to make a difference. I knew I had a calling to do more than for just myself. I just didn’t know HOW I was gonna do it.
Today, 22 years later, I rise out of bed everyday to show that yes, a woman who was a model (and is now a model again!) can indeed be powerful beyond pictures. Can indeed be a strong leader in changing the world’s perceptions of narrowly defined beauty. Can indeed be an example for others to follow so I can sit back one day when I’m old and gray to enjoy the things that YOU are doing to push my mission further than I ever dreamed possible.
Yeah, my 22 year challenge has a whole ‘nother meaning beyond what you just SEE.

Indian hemp business lucrative, it can create thousands of jobs – Akeredolu tells Nigerian govt

Governor of Ondo State, Olawarotimi Akeredolu has urged the Federal Government to beam focus into the medicinal cannabis industry as parts of measures to diversify the country’s economy.
The Governor, who is currently in Thailand alongside the Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Rtd. Col. Muhammad Mustapha Abdallah for Medicinal Canabis Extract Development Program, stated that the multi-billion dollar industry if harnessed would help to create thousands of jobs for youths.
According to Akeredolu, Ondo State which is known for her fertile land for the cultivation of cannabis will make judicious use of the Thailand’s program, which he said is centred on exploiting the possibility of medicinal cannabis.
He also stated that the program would assist at building capacity and researching the modality of licensing for planting and extracting cannabis oil in Nigeria as well as exploiting its commercial potential with focus on Ondo State.
“We all know that Ondo State is the hot bed of cannabis cultivation in Nigeria. We know how to grow it and it thrives well in the Sunshine State.
“With an estimated value of $145 Billion in 2025, we would be shortchanging ourselves if we failed t tap into the Legal Marijuana Market
“Our focus now is Medical Marijuana cultivation in controlled plantations under the full supervision of the NDLEA.
“I strongly implore the FG to take this seriously as it is a thriving industry that will create 1000’s of jobs for our youth and spur economic diversification.
“We are here to study how cannabis can be of more advantage to the state and Nigeria at large just the way Thai Government has done.
“Cannabis is used for medical purposes; how can it be cultivated for specific purposes and not be abused?” Akeredolu stated.
On his part, Col. Abdullah said the current trend in the world is to look into the advantage of cannabis in the making of food and drugs while, thee Secretary-General of Thai Food and Drug Administration Dr. Tares Krassanairawiwong stated that the meeting will be of great advantage to not only Ondo State but to the Nigerian Government at large.


400-level UNN student, Chukwuemeka Akachi, commits suicide, leaves poetic note

A 400-level student of Department of English and Literary Studies, University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) identified as Chukwuemeka Akachi, has said to have allegedly committed suicide on Monday.
According to an eyewitness who pleaded anonymity, he said that Akachi went to an uncompleted building along Sullivan Road where he drank two bottles of ‘Sniper.’
He explained that it was some students who were going towards the direction that saw him battling between life and death who raised alarm before he was rushed to UNN Medical Centre.

Our correspondent gathered that Akachi had pasted a suicide note on his personal Facebook wall hours before committing the act.
The suicide note reads: “Forgive me. In case you are the one who found the body, I am really sorry. It had to be someone, you know. I have chosen Jo Nketaih’s poem as my suicide note: ‘They said you came looking for me. I don’t drown, I was the water.’
Where do atheists go when they die! Lol. Amen,” he wrote.
Late Akachi also wrote on his Facebook wall on May 12: “My mental health has been on life support for a while now. Thanks to those who call. Text. Visit. Speak to me. May we always remember. May we never forget. You may have added a few hours, months or days to my time here. But you know life support is expensive right?
Thank you for trying. Amen.”

When contacted, the Enugu State Police Public Relation Office, Ebere Amarizu, confirmed the incident, describing it as very pathetic. He said that police would investigate the matter to ascertain the circumstances surrounding the death of the student.
