Countdown To Nigeria's Independence: I Love/Hate Naija Because....

#Singing: Go Naija, It will soon be your independence, we are gonna remember it's your independence and you know we don't really care that it's your independence... Anyway, whether we want to love Nigeria or love to hate Nigeria, still doesn't change the fact that, Nigeria is home. So, irrespective of the flood, kidnapping, bad government, boko haram and unemployment, let's take time out to pray and celebrate our land. For I have a dream, that one day, my Nigeria will be the best country to ever live in.
As a tribute to Nigeria, please comment on what you love/hate about Nigeria, with the statement:
I love naija because or I hate naija because.....

Rick Ross And Joung Jeezy In A Brawl At The BET Hip Hop Awards

Uncle Rick Ross and Ol' man Jeezy fought lastnight at the just concluded BET hip hop awards. This was reported by MTV News stating that not only did Rick Ross get into it with Jeezy, but other members of Maybach Music Group tussled with members of 50 Cent's G-Unit. Rick Ross and Young Jeezy haven't had a good relationship in the past, but over the recent years have buried their beef until last night when both camp had to cross path again backstage at the awards.The fight later escalated to the parking lot, where gunshots were fired, prompting BET to shut down the awards ceremony momentarily. The Atlanta police had to come calm the area and they released the statement saying;
"Shortly after 7:15 pm Saturday, a fight broke out in the parking lot at the Atlanta Civic Center (where the BET Awards were being taped) between two groups. Atlanta Police Department officers on scene responded to break up the fight and used OC spray in the process. Individuals fled the scene. There were no arrests or reports of serious injuries. Reports of shots fired appear to be untrue."
Hip hop was never about violence but poetry and peace.

Dear Belarich: I Caught My Fiance With His Best-Friend Kissing

Hiya, sorry for the delay on posting this weekend, was away on business/pleasure #winks...Temitope from Nigeria sent me this letter;
Dear Belarich,
I've been with my fiance for 2 years now and he proposed little over 6 months ago. I can say, I love him and I know for sure that he loves me too. His bff  is the only problem we are having and initially, i was trying so hard not to play the jealous girlfriend even after hearing that his mum prefers the bff to me. But my fiance assures me that they are just friends and nothing more. On my fiance's bff's birthday, i walked in on them kissing in the kitchen, and i let out all my pent up anger on her. I've been so angry that I've refused answering his calls or text messages, and even though i still love him, i don't know if i can compete with that. Help! 
I'm not going to say anything yet...So people, what do you think?

Is This Michael Jackson's Daughter?

Hmmm...It seems MJ's little girl is not so little after all. Paris Jackson (picture above) debuts a new cut similar to Miley Cyrus's Hair cut. Although, the little bomb shell  is already known to be one for making statements, whether it’s sticking up for her beliefs, or even her family members. Some follower's criticized the look but PJ shut them up by tweeting;

Well, it's obvious she is all grown up, particularly after her gig at Glamour Magazine. For more on the Glamour Magazine gig, click here.

Rihanna Giving-up On Chris Brown?

Well, news reaching me now, is stating that the singer is actually flipping the page on Chris Brown following the news of him kiss-talking Nicole Schnerzinger.

Earlier this week,  Rihanna tweeted that she was praying for her baby, Chris Brown's legal woes, wishing him the best. After the court told him he failed a drug test, rumors started to emerge that the pair talked and Rihanna was willing to go to court and defend her friend Breezy. But after photos surfaced of CB kiss-talking NS in the club, Rihanna took to twitter to express her feelings, tweeting:

Kelly Osbourne's $250,000 Manicure

Lord have mercy! Kelly Osbourne, Fashion Police co-host, was spotted at the Emmys on Sunday with a nail polish created by renowned jeweler Azature. The price of a bottle runs $250,000 due to the fact that it contains 267 carats of black diamonds. Although, She took to Twitter today to offer an apology following criticism over her revelation, stating;
"I see that my nail polish has offended some of you, however I see your point, but it was a once in a lifetime experience #MyApologizes. And please forgive me for not regretting it, it made me feel like a queen!
It was later confirmed by Kelly on twitter that the manicure was actually free of charge as she was lucky enough to be selected to wear it to the Emmys.
Please, even if the nail polish was $20, i still will not buy it because ther is really no point. What's so funny, is that no one actually took notice of the $250,000 nail polish, until she tweeted it.

I Agreed To Share My Boyfriend ...With His Boyfriend

Hah! I saw this story on The Sun and thought to share it with you all. Please read below...

MOST women would be heartbroken at the idea of their bloke being with another lover. But Jodie Craddick is so in love with her boyfriend that she has put her hurt aside and agreed to share him . . . with another MAN. After much soul-searching, the 20-year-old care assistant from Bristol has come to an unusual arrangement to share the affections of Jez Garrett, 22, with his boyfriend Tommy William. Jodie explains:
“It’s a sort of joint custody agreement. I’ve looked at other cultures where the man has several partners and I think it’s quite similar to that. It works well. I know that it’s not the right way to do things but I really love Jez. If this is the only way, then so be it. Jez told me he was bisexual after we had been together for two years. I was madly in love with him and, despite being incredibly hurt, I forgave him. Now I have to share him with another man. It may seem unconventional to most people.” 

When they all got together for a chat about how the three-way relationship would work last November, Jodie and jobless Tommy, 21, agreed to share Jez, who is a cleaner. They decided they would each spend two days a week with him. She admits:
“On the days I don’t have him I really miss him, but unlike when we split up I don’t get depressed about it because I know he’ll be back after a few days. It’s unusual but why should we be the same as everybody else? We’ve had this going since last November and we are all happy.” 

It has not always been smiles for Jodie, who moved in with Jez a few months after they started dating. She says:
“Everything was perfect. Obviously we had the odd argument when we first moved in together, but nothing bad — we were just two young people in love. I adored the fact that he was so full of life and energy. We never stopped having fun. But after our one-year anniversary in June last year, Jez’s mood changed. He seemed irritated by things and would go off into the bedroom by himself to read. I started to think he was falling out of love with me.” 

Unable to bear the thought of losing Jez, lovestruck Jodie tried her best to put the spark back into their relationship. She recalls:
“I was always making him nice meals and buying sexy underwear to try to get his attention — but nothing was working. I was starting to get worried when I noticed Jez getting tearful every now and then. Then one evening he spoke to me properly for the first time in weeks and confessed he was having an affair. I was stunned. This wasn’t what I’d expected to hear and for a moment I was lost for words. He was sleeping with somebody else and I couldn’t quite believe he’d do that to me.” 

But that wasn’t the worst part. Jodie assumed he was seeing another girl and was gutted to learn that in fact Jez was sleeping with a gay man — Tommy. She says:
“When he told me he was bisexual AND having an affair with a man, my heart smashed into tiny pieces. I fell to the floor and sobbed. Jez told me he had always been bisexual and that although he thought I was The One, he just couldn’t shrug off the urge to be with a man too. He also told me that he wanted to share us and date us both. My immediate reaction was to tell him to get out. When he left I fell apart, but I promised myself that I would never go back, no matter how much I wanted to.” 

But as she spiralled into a deep depression, she realised just how deeply she loved and missed Jez — despite everything. She says:
“Every time I closed my eyes I could see his gorgeous face. Although I was angry, my heart melted at the thought of him turning up at my door and telling me he still wanted me.” 

Jodie suffered severe mood swings and became withdrawn from her friends and family. As the months passed, the feelings of loneliness and emptiness just didn’t go away. She says:
“The worst moments were when I came home from work to an empty house. I felt so lonely. However much my head told me to let go and forget all about him, my heart dragged me back to all the good things we had and I would burst into tears remembering them.” 

 When it seemed Jodie had no hope of rekindling her lost love, Jez turned up at her door last November — with Tommy in tow. She says:
“I was shocked to see them when I answered the door because I’d had no contact with Jez. But I invited them both in and they sat down in my kitchen. It all came out as Jez told me that he missed me and that he still loved me. Tommy, who I’d never met before, kept nodding and agreed. He said that Jez wanted me back and that for their relationship to work — and for Jez to be happy — I needed to be part of his life. I’d missed him so much that when I saw him on my doorstep my heart leapt and my stomach had butterflies. If he walked out of the door again without us making some sort of commitment, I knew it would be more months of heartbreak which I just couldn’t face. So I agreed. As I said ‘yes’ I felt relief sweep over me and the depression of the past few months lift. Then we planned how we could make it work.” 

Now the unconventional duo share Jez on a weekly rota and always practice safe sex. Jodie says:
“I always make sure that we use a condom. Most people are shocked I am OK about seeing a bisexual man. It’s strange but I don’t think it would work if I was sharing him with another woman. For some reason, it’s not that difficult for me knowing he is seeing another man. I’m still the only woman that Jez loves.” 

Even so, it is not all plain sailing. Jodie admits:
“Deep down I still slightly resent Tommy for what’s happened but we’ve managed to work it out and I’m happy again.” 

Jez adds:
“My life has always been dramatic. When Jodie came along she helped me to settle down and things were a whole lot calmer. Then I met Tommy and the rollercoaster began. I hope people believe me when I say I love them both equally and don’t want to lose either of them. Like Jodie said, it is a strange position for all of us to be in. But it does work for us, so who is to say we can’t do it like this?” 

Tommy admits:
“It’s not the best-case scenario but Jez really missed Jodie and it showed. The fact she wasn’t around affected our relationship. I’m happy for them to carry on their relationship because I didn’t like the fact I was the cause of them splitting up. We’ll just have to see how it pans out, but so far it’s going fine. We are all happy.”

The world is seriously coming to an end...

Dear Belarich: My Boyfriend Is Hindering My Financial Progress

You people will not ki me with you funny messages oh... Lily from Denver sent the message below;
Dear Belarich,
I'm a young lady, working for one of the top organizations in Denver. My problem right now is with the guys I date; it's either they are broke, looking for a no-string attached relationship or just plain obnoxious. Recently, I resolved to dating this guy I  met like a month ago. In terms of money, he is just ok, although I've never revealed to him how much I really earn. The issue now is that my boss (whom I've had a crush on for like forever), asked me out on a date and that is like a goldmine. This has placed me in an awkward position with my boyfriend because I feel like he is standing in the way of me finally having all I've ever dreamed of. Is it wrong for me to put money before love?
LMAO...Well, money can only satisfy you for a while and dating your boss is a recipe for disaster because business success usually transfers to relationship success and that goes for failure too. #BeWise

Beyonce Pregnant With Second Child?

This rumor went wild on monday, that Beyonce and her husband Jay Z are expecting another child, just eights months after the birth of Blue Ivy. This was based on the fact that the songstress was spotted wearing a form-fitting leopard dress over the weekend that supposedly showed what appeared to be a baby bump. Well, sorry o aproko people...Queen Bey is not pregnant oh and the so-called bump look can most likely be attributed to the way the dress appears in this most recent image and nothing more. see picture above

Ban On Okada (Motor-cycles) In Delta State.

The Delta State Government is planning on placing a ban on commercial motorcycles popularly known as ‘okada’ in major cities of the State. The Governor of the State, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, stated his reason for placing this ban, is as a result of the risk posed by the okada riders. This has led to several riots in the State because most of the Okada Riders have this as their only means of livelihood; also the okada has served as the main means of transportation in the State for a long while now.
Personally, i do not have an issue with them placing a ban on the Okada, provided there is an alternative provision for these people. Also, for a government that has successfully failed the masses for five years, to come up with this as the best possible solution to security issues in the state, its' quite appalling. As stated by a SaharaReporter;
"This is a government that has failed in its more than five years of existence, to provide the basic infrastructures for the ordinary people in the state and engage the youths in meaningful employment and yet, wants to deprive some of these same youths their means of livelihood".
I really don't understand this Delta State Government at all...

Dear Belarich: I'm A Muslim And He Is A Christian

I got this letter from Mina in Nigeria and for her privacy, i changed the name and location. It reads;
Dear Belarich,
I'm in a serious dilemma with my parents over the guy i want to marry because of his religion. I met Lee when i was serving in the Southern part of Nigeria. We became friends when we were in the NYSC camp and he took really good care of me. Luckily for us, we were both posted to the same organization to work. He was never against my religion or questioned it but was always supportive of my decisions. Two months into our service year, he finally asked me out and i said yes without any second thought. He took me to go meet his family and they were a bit skeptical at first but they were supportive of the relationship. He was retained at the organization we served and he said that i was the one that brought the favor to his life, and he will never let me go. After service, i returned home to see my parents and to tell them of the guy that took care of me all throughout my service year. My mum was scared but asked me to tell my dad, and so i did. My dad refused completely, stating that the issues in the country will affect our marriage and that  i should end it now before it's too late. I love Lee so much, what do i do?
This is a delicate issue because i won't advice going into a marriage without your parents blessings. Please what do y'all think?

Sofia Vergara Suffers Wardrobe Malfunction At The Emmy's

Sofia Vergara, who is an actress on the popular Modern Family, was having a wonderful time at the 2012 Emmy Primetime Emmy Awards, when she split her dress - exposing her booty butt crack! This happened just 20 minutes before her show was announced the Best Comedy Series.

The zipper in her sexy sequined Zuhair Murad dress popped, exposing her butt. But, her team was handy to fix the mess and she even made a joke about it, tweeting this;

After getting stitched up, Sofia joined the others and just enjoyed the night with good people. Nothing like a Sofia Vergara wardrobe malfunction to start the week!

Dear Belarich: Do I Take Her Back?

Hi guys, I really do enjoy reading your messages and I hope you get the answer you seek from people's comments. Today's message came from Gabbi in London and it reads;
Dear Belarich,
I've been dating my girlfriend for over 2 years now and I've introduced her to my family so plans are already in place for marriage. She lives in South Africa, whilst I'm doing my masters in the UK. I love her with all my heart and she is the best girl I've ever dated. Our problem started when she started acting funny, particularly after I saw a picture she took with another guy at a party she went for. Although this raised my suspicion but I still believed her when she said he was just a friend and nothing more. You can then imagine my shock when six months later whilst chatting on skype, she stood up to go pee and I noticed a protruded stomach. I knew it was definitely not over-feeding and when I asked her, she confessed it was for the same guy she took that picture with earlier. She cried and begged that it was a mistake, claiming she loves me and not the guy. I'm going through a lot of emotions right now but one that seems to be constant, is heartache, because i do blame myself for the distance. Should i take her back or just let her go, because i still love her?

Breaking News: Rihanna Follows Chris Brown on Twitter Again

People, like seriously? Hah! I just followed my ex on twitter too, so please start spreading the news. Anyway, Since their VMA drama, the ex-couple made it clear they are on great terms with an infamous kiss and Ri Ri has taken it a step further by following her ex on Twitter after unfollowing him earlier this year when he made a song that was allegedly a diss track towards her but it looks like all is forgiven and they resolved that issue since they’re back to following each other on the social network.! You can see below.

immediately after the diva hit that follow button, she retweed a tweet that could indicate just how she's feeling about Chris. She posted:
Oya, blow my eye...

Dear Belarich, I'm in Love With My Bestfriend's Fiancee

Before I delve into this letter, I have to apologize to Ikoji because I got some messages claiming I was too harsh in my advice. But I remember stating that I wasn't the right person to ask such because I grew up in a home, where a lady caused hell for my mum in bid to become my dad's wife, so please pardon my lack of sympathy. Todays letter is from Kofi in Ghana and it reads;
Dear Belarich,
I'm in a serious dilemma with me friend's wifey and though we are not fooling around, I know I'm in love with her. She represents all I want in a girl and when we talk, she fills up my world. I care for my friend because he is like a brother to me and I don't want to come between them. But my feelings keep getting stronger every day and when she is not around I feel so lost. Please help!
In my opinion, if you don't want to come between them, get your own girlfriend first, then stop hanging out with them.

Kanye's Sex Tape?

It seems Kanye West is the new sex tape victim and though sources are claiming it was with Kim Kardashian, Kanye's rep is claiming otherwise. For Kim's sake, i do hope it's not true and that's the girl above (be the judge).You know what i really don't get, is why do they make these sex tapes and also be so careless about it. Someone reporting on the case stated;
"The sex tape is being shopped right now and there's a lot of interest, but Kanye is freaking out!" the insider revealed. He doesn't want this tape out and will do anything to make sure it stays private. If this were to hit the market it would be worth a fortune… there would definitely be a lot of people wanting to see this"


Awww...He is so cute (Hold yourself). Baby Duke was born three weeks ago today to Guiliana and Bill Rancic. Well, if you've been following the Guiliana and Bill show, you will understand the challenges this couple had to go through before they settled for a surrogate. The new mom and E! News host particularly loves her morning feedings with baby Duke, goshingly saying;
"At like seven in the morning, we bring him into our bed, and we'll just be with him for three hours at a time," she said. "It's just great, because he kind of dozes off. We look at each other, and he's just precious. It's a nice bonding time. We put him under the covers with us and just kind of cuddle. It's amazing."
Congratulations to G&B!

Question For The Weekend

In your opinion, when is love not enough?

Bobbi Kristina's Boyfriend, Nick Gordon, Was Seen Holding A Gun

Ok, let me explain...Bobbi Kristina is late Whitney Houston's (God rest her soul) only child from Bobby Brown. Nick Gordon is the adopted son of Whitney Houston but apparently, the two (Bobbi and Nick) started dating soon after the passing of Whitney. It seems, the guy is not that innocent after all, since he recently took a picture of himself holding a gun and posting it online. This raised the question of if Nick is a good choice for Bobbi, considering all she has been through and her related drug issues.

The photo received a lot of backlash and Nick was quick to delete the picture before issuing an apology, stating:
"I apologize for posting a picture with my registered gun. That's not what we stand for and I didn't harm by it, it's a collectors item. Moving forward I'll obviously be more mindful/thoughtful about how my actions influence others and reflect on the ppl I love and care about." 
What do you think? Was he sincere enough?

First of all, the song just sounds funny in spanish but all the same, it's a huge accomplishment for Dbanj to get Pitbull and Sensato to remix the very popular Oliver Twist. It shows that Dbanj's fish net has caught whale. You can listen to the song here and leave you comments.

Backstreet Boys (Men) Making a Comeback

As reported on Celebuzz: After six years apart, the ’90s fan-favorite quintet is making a comeback. The fab five — Nick Carter, A. J. McLean, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, and Kevin Richardson — have reunited to record a brand-new album in honor of their 20th anniversary, joining forces in the studio for the first time since 2005.

And the best-selling boy band ever — having sold more than 130 million albums worldwide — are out to prove they can still make fans swoon with their longing lyrics, pitch-perfect harmonies and classic dance moves.

“I think we want to defy Father Time and just keep moving,” Carter told Celebuzz at Old Navy’s Rockstar Jeans fashion show in New York City. “You can call it our reunion album, but we really have never quit. [You] can’t stop. Once you stop, you get old.”

How have the guys stuck together after all these years?

“I don’t know if we necessarily have a secret other than just good chemistry,” Carter confessed. “I think we love our music. We love what we do.”

Richardson credits their collective “persistence” for the group’s longevity. After spending years focusing on solo albums, starring in reality shows and starting families, the Backstreet Boys have their nose to the grind for their forthcoming album, due out in 2013. And they promise this record will be more mature than earlier work.


Did I mention that I was a Kenny Rogers fan? Well, now you know...So let me share with y'all my fav Kenny's song of all time. Listen and be blessed..lolz

Happy Independence Day

Yesterday, i had an epiphany of what the future was supposed to be, not for me alone but for Nigerians. I think we have lost it as a Nation because we forget the Anthem as well as the Pledge. I had to take time out to study the Nigerian Anthem and to understand why we have deviated so much from the promises of the Anthem and the Pledge. My opinion is that, we have left it at the beginning of life's journey. So let's go back to the point when we were so eager and proud to scream the National Anthem, even when we didn't understand the words. Let's go back to the time when the Anthem meant something. Let's go back to when Nigeria was ours to build. Let's go back to when we appreciate the little contributions of others. Let's go back to the moonlight singing and dancing. Let's go back to the proverbs of our fore-fathers, that even without education they still articulated the future. Let's remember that the journey did not end when we failed the Nation but it began when we admitted our wrongs and resolve to restitution.

Arise, O compatriots,
Nigeria's call obey
To serve our Fatherland
With love and strength and faith.
The labour of our heroes past
Shall never be in vain,
To serve with heart and might
One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity.

O God of creation
Direct our noble cause
Guide thou our leaders right
Help our youth the truth to know
In love and honesty to grow
And living just and true
Great lofty heights attain
To build a nation where peace
And justice shall reign. 

I pledge to Nigeria my country,
To be faithful, loyal and honest,
To serve Nigeria with all my strength,
To defend her unity,
And uphold her honor and glory,
So help me God 

Dear Belarich: I'm in Love With a Married Man

Okay?...Let me take myself out of it first, before i ki person. I got this letter from Ikoji from Namibia and it reads;
Dear Belarich,
I'm a 24 yr old in love with a 37 yr old man. He loves me too but the only problem is that he is married, although he said he would divorce her so we can be together. I'm not so sure about it because it's been over 6 months now and there's no sign of him leaving her. Also, i recently found out that i'm pregnant and he was so happy when i told him because he doesn't have any child. I just want my child to grow up in a complete home, what do i do?
First of all, i'm the wrongest person to ask because assuming you were in front of me, i would have removed your eyes before the wife did. Secondly, you can't build your happiness on someone's misery and trust me, KARMA will soon bite you on your behind.
Iyam so annoyed, please leave your comments below.

I couldn't help but laugh at the headline on Enews Kate Middleton's Topless Photos Start Global Tour of Their Own, Now Set For Danish Newsstands. Apparently the Danish magazine announced today that it would be running the pictures of Kate despite the royal couple not only putting up, but winning, a legal fight against the French magazine that opened the floodgates of their privacy violation and published a slew of topless photos taken of the duchess while on vacation. other European magazines in Irish and Italian publications wasted no time in getting the photos in their pages, and it seems the scandalous shots are moving further onto the continent. Denmark's Se og Hoer announced today it would run the photos in order to show the nation "what these photos are all about."
The tabloid's editor, Kim Henningsen, said it would run "60 or 70" of the photos taken as part of a 16-page supplement set for release on Thursday. At the same time, the Swedish edition of the same magazine (both published by Aller Media) said it too would run the photos in an 11-page spread. The Swedish mag's editor, Carina Loefkvist, said;
"This is nothing unusual, these are quite nice pictures if you compare with other celebrity pictures that we publish all the time,".
Can we just move on from this already?

Obama Hangs With JayZ And Beyonce At 40/40 Club

The US President, Barack Obama, after leving the David Letterman show, stopped by the 40/40 club last night to attend the $40,000-per-person  fundraiser hosted by Jay-Z and Beyonce. The President was in New York to raise a few dollars for his campaign as well as attend the opening of this year's session of the United Nations. The program started with a speech from Beyonce stating;
"I can't tell you how proud we are to host tonight's event with President Obama," Beyonce, We believe in his vision."
This was said in While addressing those present, Obama said;
"Beyonce could not be a better role model for my girls, and I and Jay-Z have a lot in common.
We both have daughters and our wives are more popular than we are. So, you know, we've got a little bond there. It's hard but it's okay."
It was a more subdued speech than what some may have expected at such a glitzy affair, according to the pool report. Obama hit many of the same themes from his standard stump speech, saying he wanted to make sure that,
"here in America, you can make it if you work hard."

But he also added some new points, including about riding a fine line between confidence in his prospects and instilling urgency in such a close election.

"I don't want people to be complacent, but I don't want people to be discouraged," he said.
Here are some pictures from the fundraiser:

From Radiculopathy to Myomectemy: Nigeria, her expatriate rulers by Ogaga Ifowodo

And so, once again, the wife of a serving president flies off to Europe in search of a cure for a non-life threatening problem.

For plastic surgery, if there is a grain of truth to the unofficial disclosures attributed to sources in the presidency, though that is all that the citizens underwriting this expensive treatment have: the president does not deign to tell us what is wrong with his wife.

Mrs Patience Jonathan — who will not be pleased with me for not addressing her by the cherished self-appellation of Dame in her moment of distress — is recovering in Germany after having her uterine fibroid removed. No, she did not go to excise her ruptured appendix, as was earlier reported: myomectemy, not appendectomy.

This also puts to rest the happier reason of much needed rest from exhaustion (so arduous are the labours of the first spouse) as her spokesman informed us.

The eagerness of Nigeria’s rulers to whisk themselves or their wives off to tend to every real or imagined ailment abroad at public expense is nothing short now of a national calamity.

And it invites even greater scrutiny than ever before. For want of a better term and since we are speaking of diseases, I will call this infuriating habit bordering on a disorder of the mind the expatriate syndrome or expatriaitis.

According the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the word “expatriate” in its verb form means “to withdraw (oneself) from residence in or allegiance to one’s native country”; “to leave one’s native country to live elsewhere”; also “to renounce allegiance to one’s native country”.

Now, clearly, our rulers do not live abroad, though we must include the qualification “physically” while sticking to the literal sense of the word.

But while they may reside in their official quarters, have palatial homes in their villages, state capitals, Abuja and Lagos, their most cherished mansions are to be found in the priciest neighbourhoods of London, Paris and Washington, D.C.

In any case, I am more concerned with the second sense which warrants the diagnosis of expatriaitis, defined as a disease of the mind that causes its victims, who, for my purposes here, are Nigerian rulers, to see themselves as foreigners, and so to shape their thoughts and actions with reference to a developed foreign country, especially a European one. I lay no claim to exactitude, but it will do.

If an expatriate is not merely one who resides outside his or her own country (ex patria) but can also be one who has “renounced” or “withdrawn” allegiance to the native country, then our rulers are expatriates to the core. By tell-tale deeds, they betray their primary allegiance to Europe.

As a result, they feel no sense of patriotic duty or responsibility to the land of their birth. If the Christians’ Holy Book is right when it says that where a man’s wealth is there will his heart be also, then nothing proves this claim more than the ultimate destination of the billions our rulers steal: Swiss banks and other Euro-American institutions of graft.

In other words, Frantz Fanon was right to describe the emergent African bourgeoisie as having “black skin” and “white masks”. It is a product of the dubious legacy of colonialism, what we refer to in popular parlance as colo-mentality.

We may turn the phrase a little to “black skin, white-washed minds”. Our rulers, still ravaged by the unbroken and unexamined, though mostly unconscious, legacy of external conquest and domination, are no more than mere stand-ins for the erstwhile colonial masters whose allegiance was always to Europe.

Thus, a quarter of a century after General Ibrahim Babangida flew to France to treat a leg injury, no succeeding head of state has thought it necessary to build, or made it possible to build, a medical facility where his head- or tooth-ache, cough, malaria, arthritic toe, “general debility” or, God forbid, any more serious ailment, may be treated.

Babangida’s long-standing injury was given the grandiloquent name of radiculopathy, a condition more appropriately associated with the spine and eminently treatable at home, but, no, he had to go to Europe. Then there was the case of Mrs Stella Obasanjo who died in Malaga, Spain, after a cosmetic procedure to remove stomach fat.

And so it happens that more than two years after the national embarrassment of the saga of President Yar’Adua’s endless trips to hospitals in Germany and Saudi Arabia to save his ailing heart and liver, his successor, Goodluck Jonathan, has chosen to shame us anew with another medical trip fiasco.

This time, the emergency that necessitated the junket to Germany was uterine fibroid, a condition that many women are known to have without even knowing it because it is generally benign and so seldom requires surgery, except for cosmetic purposes.

And, indeed, the word is out that this was the reason why Mrs Jonathan flew to Germany and checked herself into the Dr. Horst Schmidt Klinik in Wiesbaden, a facility, let us note, shared by the United States Army’s medical department.

How else but in the light of the utter obliteration of national competence and self-belief following a chronic case of expatriaitis can it be explained that Mrs Jonathan’s fibrosis was allegedly misdiagnosed as appendicitis or food poisoning by the doctors at the presidential clinic?

Yet the misdiagnosis is only a symptom of the cancer of self-doubt that has now overawed our collective being. Leading to the crying shame that such routine procedures as appendectomy and myomectemy could not be performed at the presidential clinic. Nor in any of our teaching hospitals.

Nor in any of the country’s countless private hospitals. But then, I assume that with their necks turned rigidly towards Europe, to anywhere but home — see the staggering number of foreign trips Jonathan has made since assuming office- the President even thought for a second of the possibility of a cure at home.

Dear Bela, My Fiance' Beats Me And Threatens To Kill Himself If I Leave

I would like to start by thanking you all for you messages, although i don't get to put all of them but I do read them. Also, please do leave a comment on other post as you send your messages because there would be no blog without your comments. With that said, I got this message from Edita (Lithuania) and it says;
"Dear Belarich,
I've been dating my fiance since high school and we have gone through a lot that our relationship feels more like marriage. He proposed last year on my birthday, which was a bittersweet feeling for me because of late, we've been having nasty arguments that usually results in him hitting me. The last incident resulted in me being in the hospital for a week. When i returned from the hospital i was determined to leave him but he said he couldn't live without me and that if i go, he would kill himself. I do love him but i'm afraid that i might not leave the relationship or marriage alive. I tried talking to my mum but she is so preoccupied with the wedding plans that she doesn't want to believe the picture of the person he is now. She kept on saying it's the stress of the wedding, that we should work it out. I don't know who to talk to, please help!
All i can say is, run as fast as your legs can carry you. Even if it means me paying for you to come live with me till he finally kills himself...Just saying.

A Nigerian Actor Caught in an Homosexual Act

First of all, I won't play the role of a judge cos the bible says judge not, but I'm a true believer of the word of God which does not condone the relationship between same sex. The case here is between Bestwood Chukwuemaka and the State, where the accused was caught having sexual intercourse with a fellow man. Prior to this case, the Nigerian Senate passed a strict law banning same-sex marriage and public display of affection by gays and lesbians in Nigeria in November 2011. According to provisions of the bill – Same Sex Marriage (prohibition) bill 2011 – a 14-year jail term is prescribed for convicted offenders in Nigeria.
“Persons who entered into a same sex marriage contract or civil union commits an offence and are each liable on conviction to a term of 14 years imprisonment. Any person, who registers, operates or participates in gay clubs, societies and organization, or directly or indirectly makes public show of same-sex amorous relationships in Nigeria commits an offence and shall be liable on conviction to a term of 10-year imprisonment,”.
On Monday September 17th 2011, the 28 year-old actor was sentenced to three-month imprisonment at a Karu Senior Magistrates’ Court, Abuja, being the first person the bill was used for. Premium Times quoted him as pleading guilty to engaging in homosexual acts.
“I am guilty of the charge against me. I was under the influence of alcohol and I want the court to temper justice with mercy’’

The Police Prosecutor said the convict’s act was contrary to Section 284 of the Penal Code and that he committed the offence in August when sleeping in his bed.

Premium Times also noted that when he was first arraigned in early September, Mr. Chukwuemeka pleaded not guilty, saying,
“I came back drunk from the night club and thought I was sleeping on the same bed with my girl-friend and I started romancing her.”

However, when the case was heard on Monday, the actor suddenly pleaded guilty, and was then sentenced to three-month imprisonment.

The Senior Magistrate, Nafisatu Buba, sentenced him to three-month imprisonment without an option of fine, saying:
“This would serve as warning to other youths who hide under the influence of alcohol to commit crimes,’’. 
I'm so not surprised because the same Nollywood are the ones promoting homosexuality in the country.
