Nigerian Twittersphere Going Wild With #AllThingsBeingYoruba Trending Topic



The Nigerian Twittersphere always has something hilarious going on practically every day and today, the trending topic is #AllThingsBeingYoruba.

We can’t help but wonder how they actually come up with these things and because of the massive population of our country, it always ends up being a trending topic.

So today’s topic is about what it means to be Yoruba and there are quite a number of really hilarious comments. The trend was started by a non Yoruba tweep to slander the Yoruba tribe but it was quickly turned around on him.

My country though, even on the most trying of days, there is always something to laugh about.

Cheating Made Easy With Artificial “Pum Pums”…Mrs. Kermit Knows Best



“All men cheat!” *sips coffee* It is stale gist, yes…I know but don’t crucify me, I didn’t start it. Why do men cheat? Question for the gods and cupid. Lol.

I was watching the news and my phone beeped, I turned down the volume and reached for it, hoping it was my Ghanaian crush calling to ask, “What are you doing?” but no, it was a close friend of mine who sent me a ping. Let’s call my friend “Big Booty.


Adokiye’s Offer To Give Virginity To Boko Haram For Return Of Chibok Girls Is Generating Buzz In International Media



When the news about singer Adokiye offering her virginity to Boko Haram insurgents for the release of the missing Chibok girls started making the rounds on Nigerian blogs, many including myself figured it was a publicity stunt on her part.

Whatever her motives were when she made the offer, the story is now generating a lot of buzz for her on the international medial circuit. Daily Mail & The Independent UK have both covered the story of 23 year old Adokiye’s virgin offer to Boko Haram.

Adokiye made a huge splash a few years ago on blogs when she released topless and nip baring pictures to promote herself.

The last time I checked Ghanaian actor Majid Michel was still very much a married man, with two daughters. So why he is gushing about being “love struck” by Genevieve Nnaji at the Africa Magic Movies Viewers Choice Awards is beyond me. The two presented and award together…

Brown eyes, tuxedos, red carpet, fast cars i was her James Dean on the Low… Ladies and Gents… The Ex-host Presents…Ex-travagance… Never seen such Magnificence in a Black Princess… Felt like Love struck me on that Night… I pray that Love doesn’t strike Twice.

Chimamanda Adichie Says Lupita Nyong’o’s Existence In The World Is Very Important. No Word On Dencia…



During a recent segment of HuffPost Live, author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie who was recently in the news for refusing to be address by her marital name and her Mrs. title, had nothing but great things to say about Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o and her influence on beauty for black women.

Adichie raved about Nyong’o saying, “I think her existence is very important, I’m so grateful she exists”

This is in light of the ongoing drama from Dencia about Lupita Nyong’o mentioning her name & Whitenicious skin bleaching cream during  a powerful speech at Essence Magazine’s Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon, where she told her story about accepting her beauty as it is, not as it should be.
