'Why I named my twins Nollywood & Hollywood' - Femi Ogedengbe


Just as people are still wondering why he chose the names ‘Hollywood’ and ‘Nollywood’ for his set of twin who were brought to the world in May, Yoruba actor/movie produce,r Femi Ogedengbe gushed to Encomium magazine this week about the reason for the names and he said thus:


"The names are my own way of appreciating the industry that gave me a chance, that is Nollywood and the industry I aspire to breakthrough, Hollywood. I will simply say thank you to the people who criticized me for giving me attention. It shows they noticed me. Also it shows they left their own problems to respond to a guy with a very humble background from Dagbale Akoko Edo who grew up in the slums of Mushin. Furthermore, to those who say I am an attention seeker, I say thanks to them for granting me and my wife undue attention. Sadly it did not come with money"

PHOTO: Chris Brown expresses His love for Karrueche on Social Media.


Can we get enough of this on again and off again couple? I doubt it.....But all i can say is Karrueche is one love struck, determined lady who has been screaming all over social media through photos/messages that she and Breezy are an item; especially after she was tagged "a side chick" by VHL. Right now, Chris Brown has proven to the world that she is his girl (main chick), by posting for the first time, a pic of both of them with the message 'she a real one" on twitter. Riri's fans of course have still refused to accept his admittance, saying the message might not be for Karrueche but for Rihanna. lol......

Charles Novia Brutally Bashes Tiwa Savage's Video, calling it 'Gross and Stupid'.


A pity I didn't bring you this story as hot as it started. What exactly has been trending for the past days is Tiwa Savage's 'wanted' video where she wore a nude costume, displaying the 'Rihanna inspired crotch touching feat' and a couple of other sexy moves in the video which people described as 'unbefitting' for a newly married African woman. Phew!! While her fans and everyone that has access to the social media have been backlashing her brutally, her friends and darling hubby have been countering the bash and standing for her. Known for his vocal prowess, not in the sense of singing, but being too vocal to the discomfort of some and the joy of others, Charles Novia has done what he is good at and has gone ahead to give Tiwa's video the bashing of life analyzing every bit of the video, calling it tart and stupid......See more after the cut............

Then I heard my father calling my name and I told him to allow me go answer him.Mopol told me to shut up my mouth and the next thing, he covered my mouth with his hand and tied it with a cloth. He also tied my neck and my hands. He then used a sharp iron and hit me on the head. I started bleeding but I could not shout because he tied my mouth.
When he heard my parents looking and shouting for me, he pushed me under his bed. Later, he locked the door and left me under the bed bleeding. I could hear my parents shouting my name but I couldn’t do anything.

 A 42 year-old French tourist was simply acting from the kindness of her heart when she gave what appeared to be a homeless man her leftover pizza. 
However, she later learned that the man was far from destitute, and was instead Hollywood icon Richard Gere.
The tourist, who revealed herself on Saturday as Karine Gombeau, from Paris, saw Gere standing outside of Grand Central Station at approximately 5:45pm on Tuesday. According to Gombeau, who had just left a pizzeria in Little Italy, he was digging through a trash bin and drinking a beer from a brown paper bag

'I said "Je suis désolée [I am sorry], but the pizza is cold"' Gombeau told the NY post, who approached the 62 year-old actor with the remnants of an 'enormous' pizza her family had shared but was unable to finish. The pizza was carried in a plastic 'I Love NY' bag.
'He said "Thank you so much. God bless you."' recalled Gombeau. 
She did not know until she saw herself in a newspaper two days later that the man she extended her generosity to was Gere, the star of such blockbusters as 'Pretty Woman' and 'An Officer and a Gentleman.'  He is reportedly worth $100 million.
