Sandra Ogbebor will be representing Nigeria at the Miss Globe International pageant

Stunning MBGN runner up, Sandra Ogbebor is representing Nigeria at the Miss Globe World Finals in Albania Eastern Europe. The University of Benin graduate is Nigeria’s Miss Globe 2014 and the only African at the Miss Globe contest 2014 amongst 42 other delegates from all over the world. 

Fashola, Ezekwesili, Chimamanda, Mobola Johnson, Adamu Muazu, Lanre Da Silva, others are the 10 nominees for YNaija Person of the Year 2014 – Vote Now


Mosunmola Abudu, 50
It is not every time you find a person (male or female) who re-invents as much as Mosunmola “Mo” Abudu does, and yet stays ahead each time – focused solely on pushing the boundaries where they exist. First as a Human Resource expert, then as a venture capitalist, Mo found herself with the groundbreaking TV series, Moments with MO. 2011 however brought a whole new level – Mo arriving as the only female in the country to own and lead a television station. One year after, with a pack of the nation’s brightest television personas, and leading the pack for culture and cool, it is apparent that Mo has changed the way we look at women in the media.


The editors of Y! – TV, Magazine & Online – today announced the shortlist for Y!/YNaija.com Person of the Year 2014.

The YNaija Person of the Year is in its fourth year and is awarded to the individual who has most visibly influenced the Nigerian society for good in the past year, breaking new boundaries or consolidating on gains – and driving the advancement of the public, especially young people.
The editors announced there was no winner for its first edition in 2011. The 2012 winner was entrepreneur and Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote. The 2013 winner was tech industry trailblazer, Jason Njoku.
The shortlist is announced following the decision of editors as well as feedback from readers and social media audiences. Voting commences today, Monday, 3 November and closes after a month on Sunday, 12 December.

-       Mosunmola Abudu, media
-       Babatunde Fashola, governance
-       Mobola Johnson, public service
-       Vincent Enyeama, sports
-       Lanre Da-Silva Ajayi, fashion
-       Obiageli Ezekwesili, civil society
-       Chimamanda Adichie, art
-       Stella Adadevoh, health
-       Adamu Muazu, politics
-       Atedo Peterside, business

Babatunde Fashola, 51

His angry diatribes against the president of his country underline one crucial fact – Babatunde Fashola feels Nigeria has been short-changed when it comes to visionary and (to forgive the pun) transformational leadership. And he has the credibility to boot. His administration has not been perfect, as many of the roads and schools in Lagos would testify, but the clarity and force of the vision Fashola has for Lagos, and the single-mindedness with which he has pursued the imperatives of a modern city, have never been in doubt. That razor-sharp intellect and the strength of character to see it through is what led his state’s successful push against Ebola in Lagos, and then Nigeria. In the centre of chaos, he stands as a practical icon of governance and leadership, and not just for Nigeria. And because of that, Fashola gives Nigeria’s thinking set hope – that Nigeria’s leaders can yet inspire.

Omobola Johnson, 51

Call her the mother of Nigeria’s IT revolution, and you would only narrowly miss the mark. Omobola Johnson, fresh off 25 years at Accenture, might not have inspired or led the movement from the start – but the strides to democratize broadband to the acceleration of IT investment, entrepreneurship and collaboration (including the Idea Hubs across the country) certainly earn her the street credibility to boast leadership. Through a robust policy framework, a national and harmonized ICT policy, and an inspired work-schedule that has helped converge all the players in a sector once defined by conflict and a lack of direction, Nigeria’s Minister of Communication Technology has brought excitement, passion and critical long-term thinking to the job of enabling Nigeria take advantage of the opportunities technology bring as well as accelerate our leap into the future.

Am not showing off says Wizkid as he Display his Wealth On Social Media To Motivate his Fans,


According to Wizkid, what he does is not showing off, but trying to motivate his fans with what he has achieved from his hustles.

“I don’t show off my wealth on the social media. Most of the things I have acquired in life, I never had them before I started hustling. So, now that I have them, I need to show people that these are the things I have gotten from my hustle. When I started, I wasn’t wearing gold necklaces and wrist watches. So, when I buy these pieces of jewelry, I display them for my fans to get them motivated,” he told Matinee in a recent chat.

"We don't really know what went wrong, we only know what is in reports in the media." Anietie said
He also said that the family is making preparations to bring her body home. According to the Daily Mail, Joy, who relocated to the UK from Nigeria in 2007 and lives with her mother in Thamesmead, died on October 23rd after visiting a clinic called SP Clinic in Thailand which she had found on the internet.

From UK Daily Mail
Doctor Sompob Sansiri, 51, is lead away by police after Miss Williams died at his clinic
She initially visitied to the SP clinic, which she found on the internet, on October 14 to have the operation which she hoped would give her a bigger, fuller bottom.
A few days later her wounds became infected and she returned to have corrective surgery to remove the silicon implants.
But she was found dead on the operating table with a three inch-long stitched incision on her tail bone after medical staff found they were unable to resuscitate her.
Thai officials investigating her death believe her operation had been delayed to ensure Miss Williams had not eaten anything beforehand and that as a result the operation began after the clinic's legal closing time of 7pm.
It is believed Miss Williams had long struggled with her self-esteem and been bullied at school before choosing to undergo an operation on her nose to improve her looks.
