Amaka Igwe, Renowned Nollywood Movie Producer, Has Died :(

Amaka Igwe, one of Nigeria’s foremost film producers, writers, directors and a leading player in the motion picture industry, is dead.
The news of her death which came to many as a shock, was contained in a statement issued Tuesday in Lagos by The Nigerian Entertainment (NET).
The statement said that Amaka died on Monday night in Enugu after a brief illness.
Confirming the death to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Tuesday in Abuja, Mr. Agility Onwurah, Chairman, Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Abuja Chapter, said Amaka’s demise was a big blow to the Nollywood industry.
“Amaka had gone to Enugu in company of her husband for pre-production of a new Igbo soap when the sad incident occurred.
“She suffered an asthma attack and was immediately rushed to a hospital, but died before getting there.
“Amaka is survived by her husband of 21 years, Charles Igwe, three children, and an aged mother," the statement said.
Born Amaka Isaac-Ene, the deceased was an accomplished writer, producer, director, entrepreneur and teacher.
She founded the BoB TV Expo, and was the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Top Radio 90.9 FM, Amaka Igwe Studios, and the newly-launched Q Entertainment Networks.
The statement described Amaka as a visionary, and pioneer of modern Nigerian TV drama and film.
Amaka hit national limelight as the writer and producer of the award-winning TV soap, “Checkmate” and the spin-off “Fuji House of Commotion”.
Her Nollywood projects included Rattle Snake and Violated, two critically acclaimed movies that set Amaka Igwe Studios apart in the much-criticised Nollywood industry.
Her death has triggered lots of reactions from the public, with many expressing surprise at what was seen as the sudden death of the Nollywood star.
One of the earliest reactions came from former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, who described Amaka as the jewel of the Nollywood industry.
Atiku, in a tribute to Amaka, expressed shock at her demise, describing her as a major player in the Nigerian movie industry.
Atiku recalled that Mrs. Igwe's first major production: “Decrees of Fate” won four awards at the National Festival of Television Programmes in 1988.
“Amaka (Igwe) was one of the pioneers of the movie industry. Her presence in Nollywood grew to become quite impressive as she amassed a number of well received movies,” Atiku said.
According to him, her long-running TV drama serial “Checkmate” and the sitcom “Fuji House of Commotion” regularly held families spellbound.
Similarly, former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, noted that the death of Amaka was not only a blow to Nollywood, but to the country at large.
Condoling with the family for the loss, he said her life was inspiring in many ways, especially for teaching the lesson that virtue prevails in doing whatever one did for the greater glory of God and edification of humanity.

In its own tribute, the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), described the demise of Amaka as a national tragedy and urged the federal government to immortalise her memory in a special tribute.
In a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Mr. Emmanuel Onwubiko, HURIWA asked President Goodluck Jonathan to rename the Nigerian Films Corporation, Jos, after the late actress and producer.

Brazilian Fisherman Finds Satellite Launch Debris In River

Catch of the day: Fisherman finds satellite debris in river

A fisherman thought it was just another day on the river – until he netted a chunk of debris from a satellite.
The debris, which has been confirmed as coming from a satellite launched from the Kourou base in French Guiana, was found by Manoel Alves, 73, while fishing on a remote river in the Amazon region of northern Brazil.
The car-sized metal panel bears the logo of the UK Space Agency and the European satellite company Arianespace. It is thought to be from the carbon fibre outer hull on the payload fairing.

The panel is apparently a piece of the satellite's outer hull (Picture: PA)

A spokesperson for the UK Space Agency, Julia Short, confirmed that the debris was from the Ariane 5 rocket that launched Europe’s largest telecommunications satellite.
‘It is the launch vehicle payload shroud from the Alphasat launch last year,’ she said.
‘It probably landed in the Atlantic and then floated inland.’

Alphasat, described as Europe’s most sophisticated telecommunications satellite, was launched from the Kourou base on 25 July.

Canadian Town Worried About Rotting Blue Whale Exploding On Beach

Exploding whale fears grip Canadian town

Fears are growing that a huge, rotting blue whale lying on the beach of a Canadian town could explode.
Residents in Trout River, Newfoundland, have appealed for help in removing the 25m (81ft) whale beached next to a community boardwalk.
They say it is emitting a powerful stench that is spreading through the town of 600 people and have asked the province’s environment and government services departments for help.
‘This is about the fact that this whale is blowing up on the beach. It has gases trapped inside of it,’ Trout River’s town clerk, Emily Butler, told the Telegram.
‘Until we get some definite answers back, this still remains a situation that we haven’t been given a final solution on.’
She added: ‘If that whale does explode, we don’t know what danger that would be to our infrastructure, the longliner itself, or to people.’

Jack Lawson, a research scientist with Canada’s fisheries department, said the chances of the whale exploding was ‘very small’.
‘Eventually, that gas will seep out….It will just deflate like an old balloon,’ he said.
‘The risk will come from somebody with a sharp blade who decides they want to cut a hole in the side to see what happens, or if someone is foolish enough to walk on it
‘With this animal (in Newfoundland), it’s highly unlikely that it’s going to happen, especially spontaneously.’

Charlyboy: Bald Boldness

Leaving your comfort zone or breaking away from someone else's shadow are the most difficult things to do. As humans we are always stuck in the wheel of routines. As soon as I was done with school, I was in a hurry to establish an identity of my own, find my own path and do my own thing. I gate crashed into the music scene, for me it was the quickest way to not only get attention but fame and a place in history, because I set about it all in the most unusual manner, determined to succeed. This was some 35 years ago, I thought of special features or traits that would stand me out. I came up with my alter ego, the feminine side of me with all the make-up, girly girly stuff etc.
And they all shouted, “Ha Naija Boy George”. See dem mouth.

From birth I have always been a restless soul, always questing for fresh new ways, always questioning why things were the way they were. As an adventurer, I have always looked for other ways of doing the same thing, always on a permanent exploration trip. So I regularly felt the need to keep re-inventing me. So from the "Boy George" look, even though I had started way before he was known, I morphed into a Bohemian character. That's when the Pins, Chains, Studs, Rings, Piercings, Tattoos, the Mohawk/Punk look changed the whole game. Hummmm, come and see, I looked like the biggest bouncer ready to beat up anyone and everything in my path.

Charlyboy Dishes It Raw - (BBF: Bagger Blogger Fool) Preach It Sir! Yessur!!!

Life is very funny and at the same time ironical. Have you ever taken your time to notice that the ones who don’t know are the ones who usually want to prove they know? The ones who are not rich are the ones who try so hard to prove to others that they are. Those who are deficient in one thing or the other are the ones who always have something to prove. Anyway, isn’t that the fun of life?

I look around most of the time and I just laugh…people amaze me to the point that I don’t need any organized comedy to get my ribs cracked up. They sit idling and the best they can do is to voice their opinion about others on any platform that avails itself.

There are different kinds of people in this life, so is the same way we have different kinds of blog followers. They’ve caught my attention and I decided to put my thoughts down.

You know, generally, there are different kinds of people that access blogs. The first category I see are those people who not only yearn for information but  want to expand, read other peoples opinion and weigh life from different angle. When these ones make comments on a post, you’ll know that first of all they understand what they read, it was well processed and then they drop their own comment, that’s their opinion. These sets of people are not biased whichever way but simply constructive. Now these ones are usually working class or owners of their business and read during spare times.

Another kind of blog followers are the ones that are interested in a particular topic. They fish out what catches their attention or what subject they actually enjoy. These ones leave their candid opinion in what they are interested in but in areas where they are not so caught out for, they always remain passive. This class is a mixture of both semi literates and literates and could either be working class or non- working class.

The third class of blog followers are the ones whose comments exposes their shallowness. If you are very attentive, you would discover that their life simply depends on blogging. All day they are on line passing baseless comment, none that is able to edify or inspire anything positive. And if you get to know this kind of people better, they are the kind that lacks any kind of creativity. Again, they are the loudest, they want to be heard at all cost, not that there’s anything to be heard in the noise that they are bound to make.

It is not their fault, because this set of people usually don’t have job, they are idle, they don’t have anything to do. They come on line to read stuff and pass comments that exposes how little on the inside they are. And sadly, they constitute mostly of the Nigerian youth who are unsure of their future. The same way you see them on blogs is the same way they passing around useless broadcasts on BBM, one that will not put food on their table.

I’m not saying people shouldn’t read stuff on blog, I just think it can become a better avenue where situations can be properly shaped instead of being an avenue for lousy talks. I’m talking to the set of people who are not even mentally matured to understand a situation let alone leave a constructive opinion about it. Why would one think that the know someone because of what they read about him or her on papers. Or because of the way the person looks, or because of something someone else has said about that person. What makes anyone think they can become judgmental over another? What gives anyone the right?

Earnestly, if we are hoping for a better nation, we had better get serious with ourselves first and also to be able to judge our own personal self and be right. End of story…

Nicki Minaj in The Movie "The Other Woman"...Check Out What She Does In The Movie

So, Here's Everything Nicki Minaj Does in "The Other Woman"

Forget Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, and Kate Upton, this is biggest reason you should be excited to see The Other Woman this weekend: Nicki Minaj makes her acting debut. In the revenge comedy, Minaj plays Lydia, an "opinionated and sharp and brutally honest" assistant to Diaz's lawyer character, Carly. And, while we won't give away what happens in the film, we will say that Minaj's first foray into Hollywood is everything a fan of hers could hope for and more. 
That said, we've put together a handy viewing guide to help you anticipate every time Minaj is on screen, so you could schedule your bathroom breaks accordingly. Really, what would be worse: missing one of the million scenes featuring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's Mark cheating with yet another hot blonde or missing one of Minaj's award-worthy real-talk scenes?
Exactly. So, let's get started!
  • Fifteen minutes into the film, Lydia makes her debut as Carly heads into her fancy lawyer office in NYC's Financial District. Lydia greets Carly distractedly, while Carly asks if there's anything for her in her office. Lydia doesn't give much of an answer, but Carly sees a gigantic file cabinet sitting in her office. Carly would've seen it when she walked into her office anyway, Lydia reasons, so she didn't see the point in wasting her breath.
  • Two seconds later, Carly and Lydia talk about Carly's new boyfriend, Mark (Coster-Waldau, or, colloquially, Jaime Lannister). Lydia comments that she doesn't understand why Carly works "so hard" when she's pretty, then, later, expresses her shock that Mark is the only guy Carly is seeing. She exclaims:
  • The next time we see Lydia, she's flashing Carly a forced smile as Carly stomps into her office pissed. She keeps the smile solidly on her face as Carly zips past her, and proceeds to wreck a bouquet of roses that Mark presumably had sent over. The smile disappears.
  • Moments later, Lydia walks into Carly's office asking what's wrong. Carly explains that Mark is married. Her response? "And you don't think you can take her?" Carly doesn't want to homewreck, but Lydia thinks married men would be perfect for her because it's like they have a hobby to keep them busy sometimes. When her boss isn't receptive, Lydia dishes quality advice: 
  • Her scenes grow more infrequent from here. The next time we see Lydia, she pokes her head into Carly's office as she's planning her revenge against Mark with the help of his wife Kate (Mann), and his other mistress Amber (Upton). 
  • We don't see Lydia again until the end of the film, when Mark visits Carly at work. Lydia looks him up and down, comments that she "gets it," and then icily tells him Carly wants to see him in the conference room. He's hesitant, but follows—only for Lydia to lock him in there.
  • What happens next can't be explained fully without giving away crucial plot points, so let's just say: Lydia watches as some of the best scenes in the movie go down, while sipping iced coffee like the queen she is.
  • Lydia appears once more before the end credits roll, sitting in a meeting with Carly. She smiles and claps, granting her approval. 
And there you have it: everything Nicki Minaj does in The Other Woman, detailed. Now, when you actually see the movie, try not to piss off the people around you when you pull up this viewing guide on your phone to watch along with it.

Beyoncé And Jay Z Moving To London? Couple Have Reportedly Bought A £5.5 Million Townhouse

Beyoncé and Jay Z have reportedly bought a £5.5 million home in London and are planning to make the move across the pond to the UK.
The superstar couple scouted a number of swish pads in London and the Cotswolds before settling on a suitably glamorous “detached property in West London”, according to The Mirror.

Beyoncé and Jay Z at the 2014 GRAMMY Awards
Beyoncé and her husband - who have 2-year-old daughter Blue Ivy together - are apparently big fans of the UK and have spent the last few years considering the move.
“Both Jay and Beyoncé are Anglophiles and have been toying with the idea of getting a pad for a couple of years now,” a source told the paper. “On previous trips, they have stayed in five star hotels and, on one occasion, a rented mansion.
“While money isn’t an issue, it makes sense for them to have a more permanent base and get to know one particular area.”
The hip-hop power couple are reportedly planning a huge joint tour of the US for this summer - though dates have not been confirmed - and UK fans are hoping the pair perform together here in the Autumn.
Mr and Mrs Carter already have plenty of pals in London, including the recently 'uncoupled' Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, and Rita Ora, who is signed to Jay’s record label.
The pair recently enjoyed a rare vacation and Beyoncé shared a number of super cute snaps on her Tumblr page.
However the ‘XO’ singer attracted attention for the wrong reasons with one photo, which sparked speculation over whether Bey had photoshopped her own thighs.

Nyanda with Ugandan All-Stars: Your Ways (Official Music Video)

Nyanda joins forces with Ugandan stars GNL ZambaRay SignatureIrene Ntale,Maurice Hasa and Big Tril on YOUR WAYS.

Watch YOUR WAYS [Official Music Video] – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ElBXCShptEk

YOUR WAYS is an integral part of a youth oriented Campaign led by Reach A Hand Uganda which targets teens and young adults and aims to empower them with knowledge to better understand their sexuality and in turn make informed choices regarding early pregnancy and safe sex practices.

Nyanda is a proud Ambassador for REACH A HAND UGANDA and the IT TAKES TWO Campaign. The goal of the campaign is to engage young men and women, to become advocates for increased access to family planning information and services in Uganda. It is important to note:

·         Almost 75% of Uganda’s population is under the age of 30.
·         One in every 4 Ugandan girls is pregnant.

“Being a strong woman myself and having performed for thousands of female fans around the world, the empowerment of young people, especially girls and women, is an issue I care deeply about” says Nyanda. “Investing in our world’s youth is investing in our greatest resource and in our future. If young people are allowed their right to control if and when to have children, families, communities, and nations will all benefit. Giving girls and women in particular, the power to control their fertility will lead to more equal societies across the globe.”
