1960 Gist: Basketmouth to put a ring on it…

Julius Agwu on married life…

Comedienne Julius Agwu recently sat down with Nigeriafilms.com for an indepth interview covering a broad range of topics including his upcoming album, fashion and marriage. I found his insight on married life interesting, he says;

it’s been fun and wahala. You have to explain whatever you are doing at any point in time, unlike before. The fun of getting married to a comedian means my wife does not quarrel with me all the time because if she does, it will form part of my jokes.

More often than not when you get with a creative person, your relationship will always serve as material for them, so no surprises there. But what got me thinking was when he said you have  to explain whatever you are doing at any point in time, um…ok? I can only speak for myself but when in a committed relationship like marriage, I would want my husband to check in with me when we are not together, don’t get me wrong I am not expecting a minute by minute update, but it’s a sign of his respect of our relationship when he calls or texts to say “I’m at XYZ, I’ll be home at this time…

Still this doesn’t mean that a man who “checks in” isn’t with his jump -off when he’s “checking in” with you!

P-Square make female fans go berserk…

Twin megastars P-Square have just concluded a successful tour of the states & Canada, which saw them perform in Houston, LA, Minnesota, Oakland, Maryland, Toronto and New York. According to reports, tickets were sold out at each venue, and the Maryland show was almost cancelled due to it being filled to capacity!

As with any tour there will always be wild stories….

And the story goes that Peter the super dooper hot one – was swooped by girls in the crowd during a performance, they stripped him bare and tried to have sex with him right there and then! He was rescued by security but not before the girls made away with most of his clothing.

If the part about them wanting to have sex with him right there is true (which i SERIOUSLY doubt), did they think they could get away with it? I mean he IS hot!, and heaven knows in his presence i would get all flustered and shit…but how about doing what any self respecting groupie would…stalk the tour bus, and hope you get noticed!

On a brighter note, Peter goes on to describe the tour as being very successful; especially the group being approached by Drake to collaborate on a song. He goes on to say:

Aside the fact that all the shows were sold out, the passion shown by the fans, particularly the white girls, was incredible. I never knew the Americans love us that much. Surprisingly, they knew the lyrics of our songs and were singing along with us.

Dunno what is meant by “particularly the white girls”? But hey…go figure. They are expected to tour some more US cities next year.


Naomi Campbell brings glamour to the Hague

Naomi Campbell is in court…again! No she hasn’t assaulted anyone with a mobile device! Thank the Lord! She is giving her testimony at the War Crimes trial of Former Liberian dictator Charles Taylor. Her Hague appearance is the number 1 trending topic today on twitter.

She is testifying as a result of an incident in Cape Town 1997, where Naomi was a guest of then president Mandela, alongside Quincy Jones, actress Mia Farrow, Charles Taylor and 7 others. Based on reports Farrow said Charles Taylor so struck by Naomi’s beauty, arranged for her to be given a rough diamond, Naomi told her that during the night Taylor’s men “knocked on her door and that they had given her a huge diamond and it was like, Oh my gosh!” Farrow also went on to say Campbell had told her that she was going to donate the diamond to Mandela’s children’s charities. She added she thought no more about it until the Taylor prosecution unfolded.

Based on this Campbell was summoned to give evidence during Taylor’s war trial on August 5 2010. During the trial the model revealed how two black men who came to her hotel room gave her a pouch containing “dirty stones”. The men, who she had never met, told her “there is a gift for you”. They gave her a “pouch” which she opened the next morning and containing “a few small very dirty looking stones”. They were from Charles Taylor. Despite believing the stones were a gift from Taylor, she had no intention of thanking him, she says

“I had no way of contacting him and I had no intention of contacting him.”

Naomi’s testimony which she has tried to avoid for “fear of hers and her family’s safety” brings to light the reminder that diamonds were central to the war in Sierra Leone, and the issue of blood diamonds has yet to be resolved.

WOW! Look at Genevieve work all that MUD!

She is looking MAD HOT in these recently released promo shots by MUD (MakeUp Designory) Cosmetics from their upcoming campaign which features Genevieve Nnaji as the new face of the cosmetics line, the shoot was held in Los Angeles, and a rep for the company had this to say:

Recently we were honored to team up with Bellezza Cosmetics and Spa, our retail partner in Nigeria, to do a photo shoot at our headquarters in Los Angeles with the very talented and beautiful Nollywood actress and model, Genevieve Nnaji. An immensely popular beauty icon and the only Nigerian actress to ever be profiled on Oprah, Genevieve has been the recipient of many awards throughout her career.

I think Genevieve looks FIERCE in these pictures, the make up is fab. she truly has come a long way!

I don’t envy her having to wash all that sh*t out of her hair and off her body after the shoot, but i guess if the price was right…i would too 🙂

I absolutely love Deola Sagoe, she’s my fave Naij designer, and she holds it down internationally too! She launched her Couture Polo Line on the 31st July 2010, in Lagos (wish I was there), but that’s talk for another day.
