Timed to coincide with the forthcoming release of "Americanah," the third novel from heavy-hitting Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the first look at the adaptation of her prize-winning second novel "Half of a Yellow Sun" has arrived, and a handsome fellow it is too.

It's directed by first-timer Biyi Bandele, who may not have directed a film before, but comes with serious pedigree as a playwright, novelist and theatre director and is considered (along with Adichie) one of Nigeria's most important writers. Cinematographer John de Borman ("An Education," "The Full Monty") adds further credibility along with a supporting class that includes Anika Noni Rose ("The Princess and the Frog"),

“Buhari Is Boko Haram’s Major Sponsor” - Presidency

Jonathan and Buhari

The Presidency has described former Head of State and presidential candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.), as the major sponsor of the dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram and a leading protagonist of violence. It said that apart from his ambition to rule the country again, Buhari had refused to contribute meaningfully to actions capable of ending insecurity in the country.

According to Punch Newspaper, Buhari also flayed the Goodluck Jonathan administration for what he called “poor handling of insurgency” that had led to the death of

Questions I wanted to ask Chinua Achebe, by Prof Tony Afejuku

Chinualumogu Achebe, Professor of English, father of modern African literature

Professor Chinua Achebe, without any iota of dispute, one of the best and greatest minds of this century, died a few days ago. And since his death many persons have composed different kinds of eulogies in his honour. The compositions clearly are in consonance with the engagements and preoccupancies of the universal man of letters who happened to have Nigeria, our country, as his birth-country.
 It was never my wish to offer any eulogy or oration or tribute in commendation of Chinua Achebe the First or Chinua Achebe the only Monument or Chinua Achebe the Unique. After all, I uttered last Saturday in the Nigerian Tribune the only words I deemed it necessary to  utter when the news travelled to us to announce the death of the literary man of valour who, ironically, some dilettantes have been valorizing. But dilettantism on this occasion must not be hateful and alien to us. If Chinua Achebe’s death can give birth to new tastes in the arts and literature in particular may the approbations and eulogiums continue ad infinitum.

Women Are Better-Off Without Bras - Research Claims

Women have been wearing undergarments to support their breasts for years — as far back as ancient Greece. From corsets and backless brassieres to the modern elastic bra, these items have been indespensable parts of most women's wardrobe. But new research claims that bras are anything but uplifting.
The study incited an international debate when a French professor performed a 15-year research on the evolution of the bra-less breast.
Jean-Denis Rouillon, a professor at University of Besançon in France, authored a study stating that women are better off not wearing bras. They are scientifically unnecessary, and, in fact, could be hazardous to breast health, leading to sagging breasts and increased back pain.
The study involved 330 females between the ages 18 and 35, out of which 50 were asked to not wear bras. They all volunteered to have their anatomies measured and examined for any changes to orientation using a

Rick Ross: ‘To Every Woman Who Has Felt The Sting Of Abuse, I Apologize’

Rick Ross

Today, after getting dropped from Reebok for his controversial “rape” lyrics in “U.N.E.U.O.,” he released a statement offering his sincerest and deepest apologies to those offended by his lyrics, especially every woman that has ever felt the sting of abuse.  

He wrote:
Before I am an artist, I am a father, a son, and a brother to some of the most cherished women in the world. So for me to suggest in any way that harm and violation be brought to a woman is one of my biggest mistakes and regrets. As an artist, one of the most liberating things is being able to paint pictures with my words. But

"Gangnam Style" Star Psy drops New Single "Gentleman"

Talk about a hard act to follow: Korean rapper Psy broke the billion mark on YouTube in 2012 with his viral smash "Gangnam Style." Now, he's finally taken the plunge and introduced his follow-up, a single called "Gentleman" which was released globally Friday.
Psy's original intent was to debut the song in his native South Korea, and then the rest of the world a day later. But he isn't known as the "King of YouTube" for nothing--the song was leaked and spread faster than one could say "Oppa."
Of course, the question on everyone's mind is, does the new tune gallop like "Gangnam"? General consensus around the Web is that Psy hasn't strayed far from what worked (very well) for him. "Gentleman" has a driving beat, a repeated catchphrase ("mother father gentleman"), and Korean words that will doubtlessly have nonspeakers scratching their heads.
Is this repetition of sorts a good thing? Critical reviews are mixed, with the expected cheerful-to-grumpy spectrum . The BBC calls the new tune "formulaic"; while Fuse counters that it's "oh-so-danceable" and

Kris Humphries Angers "Furious" Judge, Skips Kim Kardashian Divorce Settlement Hearing

If it's true that 80 percent of success is just showing up, Kim Kardashian is already one victory ahead of Kris Humphries in their ongoing divorce battle. The reality star and her estranged basketball-playing husband were supposed to face off in court on Friday, April 12, at a mandatory settlement conference in L.A. -- but sources tell Us Weekly that Humphries, 28, was a no-show.

UPDATE: According to one insider, the judge at the settlement hearing was "furious" that the Brooklyn Nets athlete didn't show and said it was like he was "mocking" the court system. "Kim showed up pregnant!" the source tells Us. "He's just wasting everyone's time at this point...The judge is furious. So disrespectful."
Fortunately for Humphries, there will be a different judge presiding over the official trial next month. Since no settlement was reached on Friday, the estranged couple will go to court on May 6; a source says the process

Five things we still don't know about North Korea's Nuclear Weapons Capabilities [VIDEO]


Washington (CNN) -- The surprise disclosure of an intelligence assessment about North Korea's nuclear capabilities this week raised further questions over what the United States believes the communist nation is capable of, and has kept the U.S., the Korean peninsula and the rest of the world on edge, worried about the possibility of an imminent missile launch.
