 Those who have made a mark in the world are those who broke away from the mold, and chartered a course all by themselves. Following convention, has always led to being predictable, with these new collection from Prima Rouge, it’s their own way of saying it loud and clear-We know our Onions, and we are ready to make our mark. TAGGED-REBELLION, we allow the creative director of the brand to preach to us, their new gospel.


Tarmar is one of Nigeria's Top Model who plies her trade majorly in South Africa. If truly there were Supermodels in Nigeria or from Nigeria, she would be classified as one of them, that's by virtue of her profile and the level of jobs she has done. She has covered several magazines, both in Nigeria and her base in South Africa and has cat-walked for some of the best designers at both locations and even in the UK. The 5 foot 11 inches tall model, with vital statistics of Bust- 32, Waist-23.5 and Hip-35.5 is presently signed on to one of the best Model agency in South Africa-ICE MODEL AGENCY, same agency as that of Bisi Sowemimo.

Quote of the day

Someone wrote:
90% of single people are single out of choice!
Do you agree with this statement?

Am I single out of choice? Hell no! I'm single because other than a 20-something-year-old telling me I need therapy, I can't find eligible men. And I don't want to hear 'you are too picky', what's wrong with being picky? What's wrong with wanting a man in his 30's, who has a great job, his own house, drives a range rover, with a body like Jason Momoa's, voice like Vin Diesel's, face like Brad Pitt, cool and calm like George Clooney. Will not cheat, does not lie, is sincere, God-fearing, generous, charming, sweet, sensitive, warm, clever, kind, funny, tall, athletic, very romantic and gbó gbóe and gbó gbóé. What is wrong with that mehn, what? :-)

Anyway, back to the question; do you agree that 90% of single people are single out of choice?

Abdulmuttalab Pleads Guilty To All Charges Against Him

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab surprised courtroom officials and spectators on the second day of his trial today Wednesday Oct 12, by pleading guilty to all the counts against him.
“I am guilty of this count in US law but not in the Koran. The United States should be warned that if they continue and persist in promoting the blasphemy of Mohammed and the US continues to kill and support those who kill innocent Muslims then the US should await a great calamity through the hands of the Mujahedeen… or God.” the 24-year-old Nigerian said in court today.

Did Beyonce's stomach really fold or was it a trick of fabric and light?

I wasn't going to put this on my blog, but let me do so and hear what you guys think. I don't know what blogger Sandra Rose has against Beyonce but here's what she wrote on her blog: 
Tweets are talking about Beyoncé’s prosthetic baby bump on last night’s Sunday Night HD. At first we couldn’t believe that she would actually wear her prosthetic on a show with HD — high definition — in the show’s title. But you know what they say about narcissists who think they are smarter than everyone else around them.
So there was Bey sitting down on the set — and there was her prosthetic baby bump, folding, crumpling and collapsing in full, vibrant high definition!
Luckily, the prosthetic is that memory foam type that bounced right back into shape. Rumor has it that Beyoncé is wearing a fake prosthetic while her unknown surrogate carries her baby to term.
Beyonce has no reason to fake a pregnancy, but what you think happened here? Did her stomach really fold in half as she sat down for the interview or was it a trick of fabric and light? Meanwhile she's said she's due in February.

Hon Patrick Obahiagbon Reacts To Fuel Subsidy Removal

I have read with acatalectic disgust, governments asinine and puerile ratiocinations attempting to justiceate the proposed removal of subsidies from petroleum products. It has asseverated that it’s intentions is guided by the need to checkmate the odoriferous excesses of a machiavellian and mephistophelean cabal and I have said to myself, what a shame? What a self indicting admittal of the failure of governance? What an hocus-pocus?
