Jude ‘Engees’ Okoye donates N1million to brain tumor patient, Ibezim Osemeke

Image

On Saturday July 28th, Linda Ikeji posted on jher blog asking for donations for brain tumor patient, Ibezim Jude Osemeke. (If you missed it, read it HERE) Ibezim needed 3.7 million for surgery in India.

Jude ‘Engees’ Okoye, the elder brother of Paul and Peter Okoye popularly known as P-Square, saw the post and contacted her and the Ibezim family. As soon as he confirmed Ibezim really needed help ASAP, the prolific music director who recently lost his mum, made a N1 million donation.

Jude didn’t particularly want his donation made public but Linda had to convince him to let her talk about it.  Talking about his generosity is a way to encourage others to give…to make a difference in someone’s life. I know for sure Ibezim is beyond ecstatic about this donation and is extremely grateful. Other readers are also donating. May God bless you all. May God bless Jude Okoye.

Golden Voice II! Homeless busker wins over ONE MILLION fans with sweet street serenade… and lands manager too

A homeless man who roams the Bronx singing soft R&B songs in the streets has become an unlikely celebrity thanks to his undeniable talent – and YouTube.
James Percell, 49, was approached by music manager Kenneth Williams by the Bruckner Expressway who decided to take on the crooner and help get him off the streets.
Mr Percell has found fame on YouTube, where more than a million people have tuned in to hear his golden voice – while producers and filmmakers are already scrambling to work with him.
Mr Percell’s story is similar to that of Ted Williams, another homeless man who skyrocketed into the spotlight after the world heard his song.

‘His voice is incredible. You heard about Ted Williams, this guy’s name is James Percell.’

REVEALED:Obama is the 11th grandson to the 1st black slave, John Punch

REVEALED: Obama’s white mother was ‘descended from John Punch, America’s first black slave
Barack Obama
President Obama is descended from America’s first black slave on his white mother’s side, genealogists have claimed.

DNA analysis and marriage and property records have suggested that Obama is the 11th great-grandchild of John Punch, the first black slave living in colonial Virginia nearly four centuries ago.

While it was known that Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, had European ancestors, researchers discovered she also had at least this one African American forebear. 

The discovery sheds further light on the American biography of Obama, who last year released his birth certificate to prove he was born in the country and not Kenya, from where his black father hails.

CAR-AZY … United’s Anderson, Hernandez and Macheda celebrate new deal in China yesterday
 

MANCHESTER UNITED HAVE SIGNED A WORLD-RECORD SHIRT SPONSORSHIP DEAL WORTH £210MILLION.

The seven-year contract with US Car firm General Motors will see Chevrolet on United’s shirts from the start of the 2014-15 season.

 It is worth an incredible £10m a year more than their current deal with AON.

 The announcement was brought forward to boost interest in a stock market flotation of 10 per cent of United by the owning Glazer family in the US.

 The £30m-a-year deal eclipses the current highest shirt sponsorship contract of Barcelona’s with The Qatar Foundation, which is worth £25m a year.

 United’s deal with AON was worth £20m a year over four years — and the one before that with AIG was worth £14m a year.

 United’s commercial director Richard Arnold said: “This is a fantastic, long-term deal for the club.

Nigeria evacuates 50 of their citizens from Syria

Image

Mr Olugbenga Ashiru, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, on Monday said about 50 Nigerians had so far been evacuated from Syria following the ongoing crises in the country.

Ashiru said in Abuja that the evacuees complied with government’s directive to leave Syria and he advised others to vacate the Middle East nation. “We have evacuated quite a lot of Nigerians from Syria, it was not an airlift exercise like we did in the case of Libya because they are very few.

“From the report I got, those moved so far are less than 50, long before the situation deteriorated we advised them to move.

“Some have decided to stay behind but it is their choice.’’ The minister also said that the families of the Charge d’Affairs and officials at the embassy had been relocated to the neighbouring nation of Lebanon “and they are very safe there.’’

It will be recalled that the Syrian conflict began on March 15, 2011 with public demonstrations as part of the wider Arab spring and developed into a nationwide uprising. Nigeria and Syria established diplomatic ties in 1961. 

Lobatan!!: Scientists Discover Planet Completely Made of Diamond

Astronomers have spotted an exotic planet that seems to be made of diamond racing around a tiny star in our galactic backyard.

The new planet is far denser than any other known so far and consists largely of carbon. Because it is so dense, scientists calculate the carbon must be crystalline, so a large part of this strange world will effectively be diamond.

J Lo reveals she’s open to marrying again

 

Jennifer Lopez has revealed that she has not given up on marriage, insisting that she’ll “never give up on the fairytale.”
The three-time divorcee, 42, who is currently dating dancer Casper Smart, 25, was asked if she’d be open to walking down the aisle again.
“Yes, for me the biggest dream is the fairytale. I will never give up on that dream,” the Daily Mail quoted her as saying on US TV show ‘Good Morning America’.
“It can be difficult for anybody who has to stand by my side, but at the end of the day I know that I deserve that,” she said.
Lopez, who announced she was quitting her role as a judge on ‘American Idol’ to concentrate on her singing career, split with husband number three Marc Anthony last year after seven years of marriage.
The couple have four-year-old twins, Max and Emme, and have remained on good terms producing a Spanish language TV show.
Her second marriage to dancer Cris Judd lasted just over a year, while her first marriage to Ojani Noa was for only 11 months.

David Hasselhoff wants to make love 60 times with girlfriend on 60th b’day

 

David Hasselhoff has revealed that he plans to celebrate his 60th birthday by making love to his girlfriend Hayley Roberts 60 times.

The former ‘Baywatch’ actor will reach the milestone on July 17 and instead of having the usual party, and he intends on spending the whole day in bed with 32-year-old Roberts, Contactmusic reported.

When asked how he was going to celebrate the occasion, he said : “I have no idea. One way maybe I’ll celebrate it is to stay in bed with my girlfriend and make love 60 times, that’s what I want to do.”

As well as having a lot of romance planned, Hasselhoff would also like to whisk the former shop assistant away on a romantic holiday.

“I don’t really know what to do. I may go down to Greece, I may go down to the Maldives. I like to scuba dive so I’m gonna go probably chase whale sharks,” he added.

And luckily for Roberts, Hasselhoff – who has battled alcohol problems in the past – says he feels a lot younger and has plenty of years left in him yet.

“I feel like I’m 40. My legs are the only thing – I’m having a hard time running.

“The best thing about 60 is that I’m 60, I’m no longer 59. My dad’s 87 and he’s still going. We have a good constitution and I do a lot of harm to it.

“I do a lot of drinking – healthy drinking but I’m pretty healthy,” he said.

With $19 Million, Sofia Vergara Is Television’s Highest Earning Woman

Image

Sofia Vergara has been named highest-paid American TV star by Forbes magazine with a year’s earnings totalling approximately $19 million.
The ‘Modern Family’ actress has knocked reality star Kim Kardashian to second highest-paid woman after her exploits with Cover Girl and Pepsi ads alongside her Kmart clothing line which apparently earned her a not-to-be-sniffed-at $7 million and other Spanish language adverts for Burger King, Comcast and State Farm. The 40-year-old has also bagged bucket loads of cash for recent film appearances in ‘The Smurfs’, ‘New Year’s Eve’ and ‘The Three Stooges’. Vergara is also the co-founder of the production company Latin World Entertainment which collected a revenue of $27 million last year (2011).
Although being knocked off the top spot, Ms. Kardashian was close behind with $18 million coming from her family’s TV deals for ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ and her new perfume ‘True Reflection’ as well as her clothing line that she set up with her sisters. The rest of the top five highest-paid TV stars in America were ‘Desperate Housewives’ star Eva Longoria with $15 million, talk show host Bethenny Frankel on $12 million and Kim’s younger sister Khloe Kardashian Odom who tied with comedy actress Tina Fey with $11 million.

Tom Hardy fights the Hayemaker

Tom Hardy and David Haye fight

Lords of the ring … Bizarre faves Tom Hardy and David Haye in fight mock-up
EXCLUSIVE
 

IN Saturday’s Bizarre David Haye sent out word that he was game for a scrap with Hollywood star Tom Hardy.

The Hayemaker, who has been admiring the actor’s impressive frame, said: “Me and Tom Hardy, that would be a good fight for sure.

“He has got in fantastic shape — he looks like an absolute tank. He can be my next opponent.”

And with a cheeky wink and a smile, Tom has agreed — on the condition any money raised goes to Help for Heroes, the Prince’s Trust, Breakthrough Breast Cancer, Bowel Cancer Research and homeless charity FLACK.

I’m sure there would be no shortage of money in the pot to see this one happen for charity.

Tommy told me: “Hardy v Hayemaker? No problem. Let me take my make-up off first. I’ll fight him as soon as I get back from the Congo with my mates if he wants.

“I’ve never fought a professional heavyweight, it’ll be an experience.

“I would obviously prefer my first professional fight to be against someone in my weight category but hey-ho.”

Batman madman James Holmes faces 142 charges

 

James Holmes

Shooter … James Holmes

 

 BATMAN killer James Holmes was charged with two murder counts for each of his 12 victims yesterday.

The 24-year-old faces one count of first-degree murder and one of “murder with extreme indifference” for every moviegoer he massacred.

At the hearing yesterday, Holmes spoke his first word in public since his gun rampage in Aurora, Colorado earlier this month. Asked by Judge William Sylvester if he agreed to waive his right to a preliminary hearing within 35 days, he conferred with his lawyers before whispering: “Yes.”

His hair still bright red, Holmes showed no emotion when told he faces a total of 142 charges over the slayings at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises. They include 116 counts of attempted murder — two each for every person injured, just like the murder raps — one of possessing explosives and a violent crime sentence enhancement.

Love-cheat Kristen Stewart is ‘most hated woman in Hollywood’

Image

 
HOLLYWOOD was rocked this week by the split of its own prince and princess – Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

The Twilight couple’s fame out here is unimaginable to Brits – despite Rob being a Londoner.

The only young couple who come close to them in celeb coverage terms are Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Swarms of photographers tracked them after Kristen admitted she had cheated on Rob with her married Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, another Brit.

And the fall-out is expected to impact on her career too. A studio source told me: “Kristen’s the most hated woman in Hollywood.

“Female moviegoers have been looking for a reason not to like her and now they have it.

“Lots of Rob’s huge army of female fans will boycott her films. It’s going to be a long road for her to come back, professionally as well as personally.”

Revealed: People watch more porn in winter and early summer

As study of XXX Google search reveals seasonal pattern

Americans are most likely to search online for pornography in winter or early summer, according to a new study that claims sex and mating behaviours are seasonal.

Researchers at Villanova University in Pennsylvania plugged ‘porn’, ‘xxx’ and x-rated’ into Google Trends as well as a range of more specific naughty words and phrases.

Interestingly, they found keyword searches over the past five years relating to dirty images and movies had clear peaks and troughs, recurring at six-month cycles.

 
Trends: Researchers found Americans search for porn in six-month cycles in winter or early summer, shown the above graph

The same was found for internet searches relating to prostitution, according to The Atlantic.

However, it is not just shady or illicit activities that receive a boost at certain seasons – mainstream dating websites experience the same spike in search traffic as pornographic sites.

 But there was no such pattern for non-sexual words, which were tested as a control group.

The results, published in the Archives of Sexual Behaviour, fit with previous studies showing seasonal trends of births, sexually transmitted infections, condom sales and abortions.

It is unclear why people appear to become more sexually active in the midwinter and early summer.

One theory is that it is because these times coincide with the main holiday season in most western countries, when people’s minds turn to leisure activities rather than work.

However, it may instead be linked to a more biological explanation, with certain seasons being a time when we are pre-programmed to seek to reproduce.

The Villanova research, which was led by Dr Patrick Markey, also showed another interesting quirk in the pattern of searching for online smut.

The number of people Googling porn appears to have crashed in late 2009, before soaring again in early 2010.

If the data are accurate, they may be linked to the financial crisis, which caused a recession in 2009, disrupting nearly every indicator of economic activity.
