Earlier today Linda Ikeji posted about Olamide on her blog saying:

All you Naija celebrity men know you can have sex (plenty of it sef) without getting any woman pregnant, right? Olamide has reportedly joined the growing list of celebs having kids outside marriage as his long-time girlfriend, Adebukunmi Aisha Suleiman, is said to be expecting a baby.

Bukunmi is the same girl he flaunts on his instagram page (though he recently deleted most of her pics from his page) and calls her the ‘love of his life’ and ‘boo from day one’. Congrats to them.

Olamide wasn’t having it, and took it to twitter calling the Nigerian blogger out on her misinformation.

Take a look at the tweets below:

We’re barely seven days into the new year, and we’re on controversy #2 already (#1 being basketmouth’s rape joke).

Blogger Linda Ikeji and Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson exchanged some not so nice words after the actress accused Linda Ikeji of publishing a false story about her and Iyanya featuring in a movie together.

The actress quickly took to twitter to deny that she’s in any movie with Iyanya and accused Linda Ikeji of not verifying her story before publishing. Linda hit back claiming the actress is always trying to be in news and has her publicists send her half truths and fake news just so she can be in the news. From what we understand that isn’t too far from the truth for some celebrities.

Here’s how it all went down on twitter just a few hours ago.















Whoosah! I know it’s a lot but who do you think is wrong in this scenario? Linda or Yvonne? From our standpoint we can see where one person is coming from.

Zen Magazine has released its list of top 10 African women of the year for 2013.  These women made great impacts in their different sectors. Zen magazine recognizes them in no particular order.

Editor’s note:

2013 might have been the year of Lupita Nyongo, but it was also the year that saw many other actresses, models, singers, and CEO’s shine bright via their various missions and accomplishments.

Zen Magazine have gone through the year and put together a list of their top 10 African women of the year for 2013

These are the women who have driven change via their respective fields, the people we have been talking about on social media, and the women who inspire millions worldwide.

Without further ado, here is Zen’s list in no alphabetic order.

10. Coming in at number 10 on our list is a South African woman whose name commands respect across the world. Born on the 25th of June in 1987, Bonang Matheba is a gorgeous radio DJ, TV presenter, reality show host, MC, Brand Ambassador and fashion designer known for her infectious smile, electrifying personality and fabulous sense of style.

Bonang made history last year in June when she became the first African to be the Face of Revlon outside of the United States Of America, joining other starts like Halle Berry, Olivia Wilde and Emma Stone. It was the first time Revlon ever considered an African star as an ambassador and it’s a first of many as Bonang is a woman known for opening doors.

Terms and Conditions

1. Nominees are allowed to contest only once every three years – the reason why some popular names are missing on this year’s list of nominees. Many of them have won previously in the recent past. It is our hope that this will inspire others to strive for perfection, and therefore recognition.

2. Due to the likely introduction of an SMS Short code system for voting (Still pending) votes will take the lion’s share of 60 per cent, while research, survey and agency reports are responsible for 40 per cent of the final result.

3. However, in the special Listeners and Viewers choice categories, votes will take the sole responsibility for 100 per cent of the total tally.

Before I start, I just want to say that this is purely based on my opinion. There is no statistical mathematical differential calculation that went into this. Just 10 babes in the Naija Celebrity scene that I wouldn’t mind “taking a walk on the beach” with… lol. Seeing as this list is by me, most of the criteria I used to create this list of purely from a man’s stand point, so babes please forgive me if I missed all the elegance, grace, and all that. So here goes, in no particular order:

Rita Dominic
RITA DOMINIC: I think this is pretty self explanatory. Rita might not be the hottest babe in Nollywood, but the babe has some mad sex appeal. I think it’s the attitude that does it for me man… There’s just something about her attitude. Acting or not.

Omotola Jalade
OMOTOLA JALADE: Aunty Omotola. Her body alone is enough for me start running to her village and looking for her father. It’s the African in me that just loves this babe. Orobo toh bad o.

AIRIS: Yeah yeah… some people might not know her, and some might think she’s not a celebrity yet. That one concern you. The babe is fine and her song “Without You” is too sweet. Her voice oooo… Airis can come and sing me to sleep everynight abeg.

Genevieve Nnaji
GENEVIEVE NNAJI: This one is really just because she is Genevieve. I mean… It’s Genevieve. She’s hot. Full stop.

OMAWUNMI: Black Beauty at its best, and that smile… chei… world cup man.

Chimamanda Adichie
CHIMAMANDA ADICHIE: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. This babe is hot all round. Beauty & Brains. This is someone I can sit down on the beach with and talk about deep stuff. All I need is mental stimulation sometimes and who else can give me that better than Ms. Adichie.

Laura Izibor
LAURA IZIBOR: Laura is beautiful in an interesting way. I think her artistic vibe is very appealing. Kinda like an open mic night date kind of babe. Snapping fingers and listening to jazz and all. Reminds me of Corrine Bailey Ray

Ini Edo
INI EDO: It’s Ini Edo. This one nah naija wifey material to me o. Not from a character stand-point but from her physical appearance. She just resemble fine babe turning into fine madam.

KEL: Kel Kel Kel… My home girl has called me a Kel groupie already, but there is something about the babe. Maybe it’s the rapping skills, or abi nah the body… I don’t know, but somehow she entered my list. Maybe nah Jazz sef. In any case Kel is hot.

Dakore Egbuson: Dakore to me is just beautiful. The babe has been MIA lately, but that doesn't take away from her beauty.
DAKORE EGBUSON: Dakore to me is just beautiful. The babe has been MIA lately, but that doesn't take away from her beauty. Nwa Baby, nyem ife gi...lol.

Ezzie B – Most likely to be my ride or die babe

Liz Yemoja – Will make any man look better just by being next to him. Crème.

Liz Benson – My Naija MILF

Linda Ikeji – Most likely to keep me entertained with gist

Anyways, there is my list. This is Aribaba’s stand point o. Not necessarily those of jaguda.com.
