Chimamanda Adichie Reacts To Non-release Of 'Half Of A Yellow Sun' Movie by Censors Board

* Screen capture from the movie 'Half Of A Yellow Sun'

Half Of A Yellow Sun author, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, reacted the decision by the Nigerian Video Films and Censors Board to halt certification of the movie based on her respective book. The celebrated author tagged the recent actions by Nigerian censors as unreasonable and disappointing.
Chimamanda shared her views in an article, ‘Hiding From Our Past’, which was published in The New Yorker Magazine. She was surprised that the censors delayed the release of the movie motivating their decision that it “might incite violence in the country”. 
“I find this absurd – security operatives, uniformed and alert, gathered in a room watching a romantic film – but the censors’ action is more disappointing than surprising, because it is part of a larger Nigerian political culture that is steeped in denial, in looking away,” Chimamanda wrote.
However, the author found some sense in the censors’ action, despite calling it “a knee-jerk political response”. She agreed that Nigeria is on edge, with upcoming elections that would be fiercely contested,

* Vela in the colours of Real Sociedad against Real Madrid

Few weeks before new transfer window would be opened, Mexican striker, Carlos Vela, has refused to rule out a return to his former club, Arsenal.
The Real Sociedad player left Arsene Wenger's men in 2011 for £2.5m after failing to seal a permanent first team shirt in the North London club.
However, Dailymail has revealed that due to a re-sign clause inserted in his contract, the left-footed player could rejoin the Gunners for less than a million more (£3.3m).
This is despite other clubs showing interest to acquire his services.
However, for any other club to get Vela, they would have to be ready to meet his release clause which is close to £25m.

"One possibility is my clause of €30million (£24.6m), but there’s other options and we’re looking at that, to

Women in clergy trooped out in their numbers in protest of the recent happenings in Nigeria. The group which comprises female Pastors, Prophetesses, Rev. Sisters, Pastor’s wives and evangelists say they are ready to use every means, including their ‘bre'ast’ to pray to God for intervention. The women said they are ready to use the power of women as manifested in the Bible to rise against violence in the country.

The group who were all clad in black attires said they were ready to strip and pray to God, using the very ‘breast’ the Boko Haram insurgents sucked at some point to reach out to God in Protest.

Speaking during the protest march that metamorphosed into a courtesy call at the Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission in Abuja, where the Association took their protest to the Executive Director, one of the women of God, Pastor Mama Praise said:

2014 BRAZIL WORLD CUP: NFF rejected Stephen Keshi's list due to non-inclusion of Odemwingie and Yobo?


Goal findings reveal that the Super Eagles provisional World Cup squad was not accepted by the Technical Committee due to the absence of some experienced players

Goal has discovered that the non-inclusion of experienced players in the 38-man provisional list submitted by coach Stephen Keshi to the Nigeria Football Federation last week is the reason behind the delay in its announcement.

It has been learnt that the Technical Committee rejected the list due to the absence of the trio of Peter Odemwingie, Joseph Yobo and Chinedu Obasi.

Keshi was then told to make "more consultations" before submitting the final list.

"We were shocked to discover that despite the fact that  Keshi submitted close to a 40-man list he still left out quality players like Osaze Odemwingie, Chinedu Obasi and captain of the team Joseph Yobo, players

OPINION: When chickens come home to roost - By Dele Momodu

Dele-Momodu1

I don’t envy the President at this moment. I’m certain his outward appearance is only a façade to impress that all was well. But as a human, it is impossible not to feel the pangs of the current bestiality. It is worse when you know that your personal luck in life may be largely responsible for this monumental misfortune.

Fellow Nigerians, there is no longer any shade of doubt in me that our dear beloved country has finally hit the rock bottom. Wherever we go from here I don’t think can be much worse. Whether we admit it or not, we are already in a state of war. And this type of war is neither easy to fight nor win. It is a war without rules or clear definition. The great Fela would probably have described it as Roforofo fight, a battle in which every implement becomes a weapon of mass destruction and nothing is sacred. I used to read about this deadly situation in far-flung places like Lebanon, Palestine, Columbia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan, Mali, Somalia, Uganda, Pakistan, Libya, and lately Syria. In fact, we used to boast that such acts of wanton destruction were not possible in Nigeria. How wrong we were.
But we should have known that it was only a matter of time, the chickens were going to fly home to roost, due to our collective rascality and recklessness. We behave like the Galatians in the Bible, an unthinking and

 * Nick Baines allegedly ate his wife's placenta for its health benefit

An American man, Nick Baines, has been reported to indulge in placentophagy, the act of eating the placenta. According to reports, the Guardian journalist left the hospital where his wife delivered a baby boy with his wife's placenta.
It was gathered that Mr Baines searched online for recipes to best ingest his wife’s discharge, with an initial attempt at a placenta smoothie proving unsuccessful.
The meat-filled drink ‘looked rank’, despite being blended with coconut water and banana for 10 minutes.

When asked by the surgeon who performed his wife’s C-section: ‘How did you cook it?’
Baines said: "Up front was the distinct flavour of banana, superseded by a metallic, bloody backnote.
"It had a mineral earthiness to it and tasted exactly like the delivery room had smelled."
The father of one said he finally found success with seasoning the meat and cooking it served in a taco, which

Female celebs prefer second-hand husbands - Singer Etcetera writes

 
Article published today May 3rd in Saturday Punch, page 31. Apparently the singer is now a columnist for Punch. Today, he writes about Nigerian female celebs and their preference for second hand husband. (whatever that means). Read below...
Some days ago I was at a friend's place and was asked by his sisters if I was traveling abroad for the wedding of a colleague that is still being talked about on blogs and on all social networking sites in nigeria and I said no I wasn't. But what struck me as odd was when one of them asked me "is she getting married to a brand new husband or a 2nd hand husband"? I stared at her in shock and confusion because up until that moment, I had never heard of a phrase as "brand new or 2nd hand husband. It became a heated debate amongst people in the house that day. 'wow', I never thought a phrase like 2nd hand can be attributed to a human being. I know it is only applicable to objects. 

At first I was angry. How could they have said such. But as crazy and odd as it may have sounded, they drew my attention to their observations that it is a trend currently popular amongst female celebrities in

Despite this, today he stood his grounds that he is innocent saying" I stand by everything I have said in the last 17 months.'
Judge Anthony Leonard  who passed the sentence at Southwark Crown Court today, told him: '
These offences may have taken place a long time ago, when inappropriate and trivial sexual behaviour was more likely to be tolerated, but your offending was not trivial, but of a very serious nature.''The reason why they were not brought to light sooner was because of your own dominant character and your position in the world of entertainment which meant that your victims thought that you were untouchable, something that I think you too believed.'
