Post Image

In a few days’ time, Tanzanian model, Hamisa Mobetto who is allegedly Diamond Platnumz’side chick will be revealing the face of her son to the world as he is due to clock 40 days.

Rumours have it that Hamisa’s son, whom she named after Diamond (Abdul Naseeb) is actually a product of Hamisa and Diamond’s love affair. Speculations heightened after Diamond featured Hamisa in his ‘Salome’ music video which was shot  while Zari was pregnant with Prince Nillan.

Diamond has publicly denied either having an affair with Hamisa or fathering her child, but Hamisa’s refusal to reveal the identity of the father of her son and her son’s face have further fuelled the rumour of Diamond’s paternity.

As the model plans a party to unveil her son in the Diamond and Zari fashion, we guess the answer to our question : “Is Diamond Platinumz the father of Hamisa Mobetto’s Son”will be answered

Cameras Roll for Richard Mofe Damijo’s TV Series

September 13, 2017
Post Image

Having held fans spell bound for decades on the screens, Nollywood veteran, Richard Mofe Damijo kicked off the production of his very own television series today.

Owing to his critical nature, the idea took 5 years of dreaming, strategizing and planning. His several years of practice in the entertainment industry and countless accolades did not make it a walk in the park.

He shared the news of the production with fans on Instagram Saying:

New ventures are never easy. From conception to execution it's fraught with all kinds of challenges and emotional roller coaster. Here am not now even talking money or the resources. Just dealing with the moments of self doubt, nay-sayers, criticisms some constructive, others condemning, some destructive many reassuring. Sometimes it is a battle to keep the negatives down and stay in prayer and trust God to be God. You would think that after all these years in the business me wanting to do a TV series of my own would not be a big deal right? Lie. It has been an uphill journey as I am as challenged if not even more so than most people who have taken up similar ventures. I am my own worst critic and i set standards for myself that sometimes my partners call unfair but hey, it is what it is. Anyways, long story short, after approximately 5 years of dreaming, strategising and planning, cameras finally rolled today for my new TV series. I couldn't have done it without people like my baby of life Jumobi Mofe-Damijo @rogersofime @ninacool22 @sirfumze @mudiafrica1 @kingjfranklyn @afrinollystudios @ujejuh @taradurotoye @houseoftara_intl @ejiroamostafiri @victoriandee @moabudu @maitezeron @menaajakpovi and my wonderful team of creative minions who work tirelessly day and night to make Papa Bear look good. Thank you guys, God bless and enlarge your coast. For every other person wherever you are trying to start something, no matter how small or big and has doubts, just know you are not alone. We all have fears and doubts, it is what you do with them that matters. I have learned to trust the Spirit of God and He helps me ride mine, master it and let it become an inspiration to do more. Welcome to the wonderful world of The X Family. Thank you @ikogbonna for gifting me this beautiful top from #9jaurban

Petite or Plus Size: Beauty is in Fitness and Carriage

September 8, 2017
Post Image

We all cannot be size 8. The age long cliche –  ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’ still holds true even though  our 21st century definition of beauty tilts towards being petite. Plus size women have long been bashed and shamed that many would do almost anything to be size 8.

We’ve read about models who starve themselves to remain skinny and we’ve heard of wives who said their husbands stepped out because they became plus size after having babies. Be that as it may, there are men whose sex appeal is plus size women and there are women who would only date plus size men.

A post shared by Chidinmaekile (@chidinmaekile) on

Regardless of where your preference lies in this never ending societal trend, I am strongly of the opinion that beauty is in fitness and carriage. Much more than the size of flesh anyone goes about with, how you carry it determines whether you have an appealing or unappealing look. A toned look is a function of healthy living and fitness, and all sizes can acquire it. A healthy lifestyle is free of excesses.

Popular Nollywood actor and producer, Eniola Badmus, also as known as Gbogbo Bigz girl or Badosky, broke the internet yesterday as she released jaw-dropping photos of herself to celebrate her birthday. Trust me, if you’ve ever belonged to the ‘big girls are not fine school’, you would have to reconsider your conviction. I must confess I spent quite a while perusing her Instagram account and appreciating the photos. The photos were also inspirational for me to have written such an article as this after seeing them. Have a look and tell me what you think in the comments section below.
