Still on Tiwa Savage/TeeBillz saga! Please can someone caution Freeze of Cool FM now?




Can someone tell me why popular on-air personality, Freeze has suddenly turned himself to the spokesperson of the Balogun's family?
Why has he suddenly become the one binding and unbinding all in the marriage imbroglio? Does Freeze has any hidden agenda? Does he have any hidden plan for always being in the fore front of in this struggle? The last time i checked, Freeze was never their publicist or manager so, why always the one waking the sleeping dogs? 

When Freeze was about to divorce his wife, Ope, last year, i was working with Yes! International Magazine then. I was the one who called him to ask him if it was true that he is leaving the mother of his two lovely children to a mother of four in Port Harcourt. Although, he denied it and called me names then but at the end of the day, he left his wife and moved with his Port Harcourt lover so, why is he now seeing Tiwa Savage's issue as strange and new to him.? Why is he the only entertainer that showed to be "showing concern" and on whose interest? Why is Freeze through his various posts bringing one issue or the other that can instigate actions and reactions? Can someone call him to order please!

Just yesterday, Freeze again said a man called him and introduced himself as a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN) who had the intention of filing a lawsuit against Tiwa on Behalf of TBillz, for character assassination. He also wrote that the man was going to demand a scary amount of money in punitive damages. Read what he wrote below...

                                               
Dear Social Media Users,
The Internet has been buzzing with the Tiwa & T Billz saga since Thursday, and opinions are divided into two schools. There is #TeamTiwa where the supporters are of the mindset that Tiwa was cheated and abused by Billz who is the devil, while the devotees of #TeamTbillz are clamoring that Tiwa went overboard with her interview and the damage to T Billz was excessive. I'm sorry to say this, but what we have here is not an Arsenal vs Man-U match, where one team wins. In fact, to be entirely logical, none of them can win.

Sir Isaac Newton's third law of motion, states that "for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction" and if used as a reference, we will end up with a constant chain of action-reaction scenarios, which is the perfect formula for a lose-lose situation.

If you really love Tiwa, you won't want the father of her first son to be dragged in the mud, so stop celebrating his pain. I read today, that Banky's mum kicking Billz out of Banky's flat, as an aftermath of Tiwas interview. If you think Tiwa holds the Aces now, think again, because a gentleman called me earlier today, introducing himself as a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN), and that he want to file a lawsuit against Tiwa on Behalf of TBillz, sighting character assassination and demanding a scary amount of money in punitive damages. He went on to say that the destruction to Billz reputation is irreparable. He went on to inform me that legally, the onus would be on Tiwa to prove that he actually used the drugs which won't be an easy task. 
                            
I had to plead with him for almost an hour before he could change his mind. In the same vein, if you are a die hard Billz fan damaging Tiwa's reputation won't help him as she remains the mother of his son Jamil. Tiwa is also an important factor in the determination of Jamil's moral upbringing, as he would be in her custody till he attains majority.
Whether we accept it or not, Tiwa and TBillz are both victims here. Therefore, the ONLY winning team is #TeamJamil and for this team to win, both his parents have to be respected and prayed for.
Thank you.

OPEN HEAVENS TUESDAY 3RD MAY 2016 TOPIC : LONG LIFE WITH PROSPERITY


Memorise:

Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. Exodus 20:12

Read: Genesis 49:1-4

1 And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.

2 Gather yourselves together, and hear, ye sons of Jacob; and hearken unto Israel your father.

3 Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:

4 Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father's bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.

MESSAGE:

The gospel truth is that the Christian lifestyle is so powerful, and yet deceptively simple and easy. I used the word “deceptively” because the Christian life can be likened to a police or soldier in uniform. These people may have gone through some rigorous training in the preparation for the job, however, the power behind their operations is the uniform that bears the nation’s emblem. A police officer or military personnel is therefore protected from assault and ill treatment for reasons beyond himself, and more so because he is on duty as an agent of the country. So also, a person that is born again is protected, supported, assisted, and backed up by the authority of heaven. More importantly, this special privilege is not earned through social status, popularity, hard work, financial status, or anything else. The only requirement is to accept Jesus as personal Lord and Saviour, obediently submit to His authority in all things. For example, the Bible in Exodus 20:12 says:

“Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.”

This may seem very simple and easy, but unknown to many, great power is operating behind those words. This is the Word of God and anyone that will obey these words can expect to live a long life in prosperity. If you are obedient to these words, not only should you expect to live long as a child of God, you can also expect to be fruitful and prosperous. Fruitfulness is a covenant benefit of God's children. Deuteronomy 7:12-14 reveals that God expects you to be fruitful by the fruit of your body, in your business and livestock. This implies that, because you are blessed by God, everything associated with you will carry a mark of that blessing. This is why you should have great expectations regarding fruitfulness. Are you struggling with barrenness? In the name of Jesus Christ, there shall be no more barrenness in your life, in your body and in your business. From now on, you shall be fruitful spiritually,mentally,
financially, materially, and in your body.

Similarly, according to Deuteronomy 28:11-12, believers can expect supernatural abundance from the Lord. Remember, expectations should go ahead of you before the blessings are delivered. If you expect nothing, do not be surprised when you get nothing. Those without expectations demonstrate that they do not know what they want. When you read about God's powerful promises, expectations should rise up within you. The Lord says He will so bless you, that you will become a creditor to nations.

More so, this abundance is not limited to finance. God can bless the fruit of your brain so that you will be sought after by different educational institutions across the globe. The question is, are you born again? Are you in total obedience to the Word of God?

PRAYER POINT:

Father, help me to be obedient to Your Word and bless me abundantly in Jesus' name.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Kings 18:1-19:18 and Proverbs 19:5-18. GOOD MORNING.

Horrible! Baby born like fish with legs fuse together in the womb



When the world is going to an end, so many horrible things would begin to happen. In a rather bizzare way, a 22 year old mother, from Sahranpur, in Uttar Pradesh, northern India, gave birth to this baby who only lived for 10 minutes because he/she had a rare congenital condition called Sirenomelia also known as 'Mermaid syndrome'. The condition is a form of congenital deformity which causes what looks like a single limb, thereby keeping the legs fused together, it also makes it almost impossible to determine the sex of the child after delivery. Doctors in Indian were astonished as they said they have seen congenital disorders amongst children but this particularly one was an extremely rare case.

From UK DailyMail:


This is the fourth case of mermaid syndrome in the world but the first case reported in India. Dr Vandana Arya, 35, a gynaecologist at the hospital who delivered the baby while addressing the issue said:

‘I have never seen a case like this before. We have seen congenital disorders amongst children born with deformities, but this was an extremely rare case.
'The baby was born in a fish-like body, and had its hands spread like fins, which made this case even more unique. The upper body of the baby was absolutely functional but the lower body was not developed
A large group of people gathered at at Sahi Ram Hospital for a glimpse of the remarkable new born.

Dr Arya said the condition meant it was impossible to determine the gender of the baby.
Sirenomelia, also known as 'Mermaid syndrome' is a life-threatening illness, marked by the rotation and fusion of a sufferer's legs.
The rare congenital deformity causes what looks like a single limb, resembling a fish tail, in the womb.

Medical historian Lindsey Fitzharris, who has a PhD from Oxford University, previously told MailOnline the condition occurs from a failure of the normal vascular supply, when the umbilical cord fails to form two arteries.
As a result there is not sufficient blood supply reaching the foetus, she said.
The single artery 'steals' the blood and nutrition from the lower body, diverting it back up into the placenta. 

Suffering malnutrition, the foetus fails to develop two separate limbs. The condition is extremely rare, affecting one in 100,000 babies, but is 100 times more likely to occur in identical twins.

Dr Fitzharris added:
'Sirenomelia is extremely fatal. There are no accounts of anyone with this condition surviving in the past. Most died within days of being born due to kidney and bladder failure. Even today, the odds are against those with sirenomelia, though there are a handful of examples of children living past infancy. 
In this case, the woman did not complain of any complication during her 30 week pregnancy. However, an ultrasound during the last stages of her pregnancy revealed the baby's kidneys had not developed.'
Another specialist Dr Vandana said:
"There are several causes of this condition like excessive medicine intake, a vitamin deficiency, genetics, past history or even maternal diabetes. It also results from a failure of normal vascular supply from the lower aorta in uetro. 
The operation in these cases is not possible due to the improper development of the body. In some extreme rare cases, the kidneys can be transplanted but the survival rate."

"I'm yet to get married because i don't believe in divorce" - Actress Amanda Ebeye




Nollywood actress and model, Amanda Ebeye, is is very good at what she does. The International Studies and Diplomacy graduate of the Benson Idahosa University who is one of the toasts of Nollywood producers and directors, in a chat, on Friday 29, April, 2016, intimated us about some of her best kept secrets and plans as she marks her 30th birthday… Enjoy it.
 
How has it been since you started?
Well, so far so good. I thank God for where I’ve gotten to and where I am getting to. But so far, it’s been wonderful, with a lot of hard work.

How did this all begin?
I started as a model with Apple House Modelling Agency. I did Unity Bank, UBA, Panadol, Calypso and a whole lot of other ads. From there, I started going for auditions at the National Theatre for movies and that was how I got my first role in Weeping Tiger.

What was your parents’ reaction when they knew you wanted to start acting?
My father was not supportive, but my mother was very supportive, because she knew I had been craving to go into acting when I was in school and she had been advising that I should finish my degree before I should think of acting and that was exactly what I did. When I finished, I told my mum that now that I have finished my degree, I want to go into acting and she gave the go ahead. But my father didn’t support it until he started seeing my jobs. That was when he naturally accepted me.


Some say your childhood was a roller-coaster while others say it was full of challenges and traumatic. What is the true story?
The true story about my childhood was that it was full of fun. But if others say I called it traumatic, maybe that was because I came from a separated home and a polygamous home. My parents were separated. But aside that, my parents provided everything that I needed as a child and my mother tried her best. I went to one of the best schools and I was well taken care of by my parents despite the fact that they separated when I was 9 years old.

What actually caused your parents’ separation?
It’s just one of those regular things in Africa. My father got married to my mother as the first wife, separated and moved on to marry someone else and just like it happens in an African setting. Although I was just 9 years old when it happened, now I’m 29 years. So, I really don’t know much about it all. All I know is that my mum was out of the marriage because there was a lot of wahala and fighting. So, when my mum left, she never remarried. She already had three of us as her children and I’m the eldest.

How close are you to your step dad?
We are friends.
                                        
Why do you allow your mum to marry another man at that age?
Because anyone can marry at whatever age. Age is nothing but a number. Happiness is key. If getting married at 100 would make you happy why not?

Between model and act, which of the two do you prefer? Which one gives you the greatest joy?
Of course, it’s acting. Modeling is fun, but acting is a passion. It is what will make your modeling thick, give your modeling strength. If you are a model, you are a model, but being a model and an actor is a plus to your acting career and not just as a model because then people will know that you are talented and known; not just as a smiling model on billboards alone. When you combine both, people can now relate the smiling face and the person on the screen. People don’t just say hello, fine girl alone, they relate with your talent as well and that is what makes acting to stand out.
What do you look at before you accept a script?
Right now, before I pick up a script, I look at the content. What is the mileage? How far the story can push me, how interesting it is, how challenging it is going to be for me. Is it a script that would require that I sit down and go over and over again? Recently, I got a script that I would have to be a poet, so I had to go online in search of poems to use. That is the kind of script I’m looking for. The ones that would make me think, go extra mile, that I would have to do a research on and not the usual boy friend and girl friend script, because it is over flogged. You wear your wig, look beautiful all the time with make up. It’s over flogged. We have seen all that, so what else? Like in Hollywood, you can see a character go fat or skinny for a movie. Like what I did in Agwonma. I had to add weight because those that know me very well knew that as at 2014, I was very skinny, but I’ve added weight because the director said I was too slim for the role, so I had to add weight. Those are the kind of roles I want, not just a normal one.


Actors do dump one location for another because of money. Do you think acting should be all about money?
Acting for me is not all about money and everybody knows that. It has all been about passion and not money. But sometimes you need to think about the money because you can’t continue to feed people and not feed yourself. You can’t continue to make a program a success whereas you have nothing to show for it. So, I thank God for Clinic Matters, but when Bella’s Place came, I was faced with a challenge of whether to do Clinic Matters and be paid peanuts or do Bella’s Place and be able to pay my rent. So, I had to choose the wisest option.

What is the worst thing you ever heard about yourself?
A magazine said I was dating some producer that I do not know and that the man was married and that he abandoned his family because of me with other crazy statement. I don’t want to mention the name of the magazine, but till today, I don’t like them because they were bold enough to write that I was dating a man that I don’t even know without calling me to ask me if it was true or not. They went ahead to publish it because they wanted to defame my character. So, that is the worst I ever heard.

                                         

What don’t you like about your career?
Nothing. I love everything about my career.

What of the fact that you are negatively exposed?
The press would always talk. If they don’t talk, then they are not the press. In Nigeria, they are even good because we don’t have paparazzi chasing us from our homes. Nigerian press is nice, they are very lenient with celebrities, so we are safe.

What role can’t you play for money?
There’s no role I can’t play. Not even the role; I think it has to do with the script. If I don’t like the script, I may reject the role because if you ask me to play a prostitute for example, naturally, I may not like to be a prostitute in a movie, but if you tell me you have to be a prostitute and I read the script and it is a fantastic job, then I would play the role. So, I have no problem with any role, but maybe I might have a problem with the script. So, there is no role I can’t play.

You clocked 30 few days ago, what are your plans?
My plan this year is to continue to work hard and leave God to rule and direct my path.

What is your wish as you mark your birthday?
A wish is a wish. It's said quietly so only you and God can hear it. Then you blow off your candle and cut your cake. I say mine all the time to God in prayers but I'll repeat it again tomorrow. Silently
What are some of your unfulfilled dreams?
Nothing really. Maybe just having my own estate and owning an orphanage to take care of motherless babies. Those are some of my unfulfilled dreams for now.

You once said you will get married and have kids when you are 30. What made you renege on your plans?

Oh well! I'm still single (laughs). I just said next year really didn't say it must be this age or that age.
When He says it's time to settle down then it's time. If He doesn't say it too it's fine. Marriage has never been a do or die affair for me. If it comes fine. If it doesn't fine.
 

You once said that you don’t believe in divorce. Is that part of the reason you are yet to marry?
Yes! I always say that because I don’t believe in rushing into marriage and it is because I also don’t believe in divorce.

But in most cases, among celebrities, their husbands always pull the first trigger, what are you going to do about that?
That is why you have to be careful and not just marry anyhow or anyone that will pull the divorce trigger.

How will you know?
You will now before it comes and that is why every woman needs to be prayerful. No matter how much the love propositions and rosy days, you still need to go back to your God in prayer and if you don’t go back, you are not a woman. Every woman needs to have a prayer life because that is the only thing that can guide you and that is what most people do not understand. They just live based on grace and forget God who should be their pilot and helper. I don’t believe in dreams, see one man and you say that is your husband. No way! But I believe in God guiding you to make the right choice and if you marry the right person, let him or her be your friend. Don’t marry a rich man that has 10 or 20 homes in Ajah and another in Lekki, you will not have a say because you were not there when they were building them. Marry whom God has designed for you and that is what I believe in.

Who is your kind of man?   
Most importantly, he must be God fearing, a caring man, nice man and a giving man. I like a cute man, but not that you have to be drop dead like Brad Pitt. But he can be cute enough. Be of good height, because I don’t like short men and that is all for me.
