The Shehu of Borno, Alhaji Abubakar Ibn Umar Garbai El-Kanemi  and the state's deputy governor had a close shave with death today as a suicide bomber detonated his bomb just meters from where both were.The incident happened around 2:15pm, immediately after Friday prayers at the mosque in front of the Shehu's palace. Witnesses said a youth of about the age of 15 was noticed walking towards the two dignitaries.

However, the suspicious manner in which he was approaching them immediately drew the attention of the security men guarding the Shehu who quickly tried to shield him. In the process, the bomb went off, killing at least 10 other people in the vicinity and critically wounding two of the soldiers.

JTF spokesman in the state, Lt. Col. Sagir Musa confirmed the incident but said only 5 people were killed and 6 others, including the two soldiers, wounded by the blast.

BBA’s Sheila releases brand new single

Sweet, pretty, intelligent and very naught Sheila of BBA just released her first single.
The single which she titled “Yours” was released under her new producers,  the auspices of Herbal Records.
“Yours” is a love song, whose message portrays an undying love in the face of the world’s distractions.
Sheila hopes the song will be embraced as a simple anthem for lovers.

Remember that, it was reported during the BBA show that Sheila and Uti were dating, though the star hasn’t said anything about it, she said the song is not for Uti oh before we all conclude that she's still missing  him. 

I believe the single will totally make sense. I can't wait to listen to it. 

Yey! My all time Idol is 78 today! I love this man.

I was only about 10 when I first read 'The Lion and the Jewel' and I really didn't understand it or what made it a comedy until I read it again when I was about 15 and suddenly grasped the meaning. I went ahead to read it about 10 times more at different times in my life and I couldn't help but to devour anything he wrote. One of the plays I can never forget is 'The Trials of Brother Jero' that one was one a classic. Inshort, I have a huge smile on my face now, just remembering it. 

I must say there were some I never really truly understood like 'The man died' but I just loved reading them. I also loved his poems so much especially 'the telephone conversation' it 

Happy Birthday Prof! Maybe one day, my dream of going on a lunch date with him will finally come to pass.

This is NOT the Picture of the tortured woman
I saw this terrible story on the Vanguard this morning and I kept wondering when we will stop all these superstitious beliefs and find the real cause of problems. How is a woman the cause of someone else' ordeal? Quite torching.
