Nicki Minaj Breaks Up With Meek Mill


With all the back and forth between Meek Mill and Drake, Nicki has stayed away from the drama by not saying anything or taking sides but according to Media Take Out, Meek Mill's diss track did it for Nicki and she's done with Meek Mill.

According to MTO..

Just when you thought that Meek Mill's week couldn't get ANY WORSE . . .

MediaTakeOut.com learned that Nicki Minaj and Meek have officially decided to call it QUITS. Nicki reportedly broke it off with Meek LAST NIGHT.

Don't worry concertgoers . . . they are still of GOOD TERMS – at least NICKI IS with Meek. The two plan on FULFILLING the rest of the tour obligations together. But as for their relationship . .. . it's a WRAP.

What caused the BREAKUP . . . and why did it happen LAST NIGHT . . . shortly after Meek Mill's new diss track FLOPPED??

According to one of Nicki's BEST FRIENDS, "It's complicated. I think they took their relationship too far, too fast." Nicki's homie REFUSED to say whether the Drake WAR had anything to do with it. But we suspect that IT DID.

You'll recall that MediaTakeOut.com BROKE THE NEWS that Meek STARTED THE WAR when he learned that Drake and Nicki had a 'DATING' RELATIONSHIP in the past. And it has to be MORE THAN COINCIDENCE that Nicki DUMPED DUDE . . . just when he's become a LAUGHING STOCK on social media.

THE RICHEST KING IN NIGERIA



The Olugbo of Ugbo Kingdom, HRM Frederick Obateru Akinruntan has emerged as the richest king in Nigeria according to Forbes rating.

Oba Akinruntan beat the Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuade to emerge the wealthiest monarch in Nigeria.

According to Forbes magazine, Oba Akinruntan and Oba Sijuade were mentioned as one of the 5 wealthiest monarchs in Africa.

Forbes magazine recently listed them on their list of 5 wealthiest monarchs in Africa.Oba Akinruntan is rated to have an estimated net worth of $300million while that of Oba Sijuade is placed at not less than $75 million.

The Ooni of Ife has business interest in construction, property and oil while Oba Akinruntan is mainly into oil.

Oba Akinruntan is the founder of Obat Oil and he is said to own the largest petroleum depot ‎in Africa.
Oba Akinruntan started Obat Oil Company in Okitipupa, Ondo State in 1981 with a gas station which was to meet the needs of his immediate family and neighbouring communities.

OBAT Oil has now grown to more than 50 gas stations across Nigeria.




His company also has one of the largest tank farms in Africa- a modern storage facility that has the capacity to store 65 million litters of petroleum products.

Aside the oil and gas business, Oba Akinruntan is also into real estate as he has choice buildings in London and across Nigeria including the landmark Febson Hotels and Mall in the Central Business District of Abuja
Oba Obateru Akinrutan became the Olugbo of Ugbo land, a small oil-rich community in Ondo state in 2009 and that was a prophecy comes true.

Beside his eye popping immense wealth, the respected traditional ruler is a man of class, taste and style. He oozes sheer sophistication as he possesses arrays of luxury cars in his sprawling and magnificent palace.

He made history in 2012 when he emerged as the first black person to buy the 2014 model of Bentley which was made solely for Queen Elizabeth of England in the belief that other people would wait till 2014 to ride it. But Oba Akinruntan shocked all by buying the same version in 2012.

Oba Akinruntan also has a custom built 2012 Rolls Royce similar to that of Queen Elizabeth II.
And just as he has dazzled all on land, he is also dazzling people on water and this cannot be far-fetched. He was born and bred in a riverine area before he become a king of a riverine area where long before now there was no motorable road. They travelled by water thus his love for travelling on water.

Oba Akiruntan is alleged to control some of the most expensive yachts in the country.

He sits atop a business conglomerate with interests in petroleum, shipping, construction, fishery, tourism and hospitality, consultancy services and water purification and production.

Since his emergence as the king of Ugbo Kingdom, Oba Akiruntan’s eldest son, Prince Akinfemiwa Akinrutan, has been the managing director of the company while the king assumed post of the Chairman of the oil company.

10 reasons Nigerian men run from marriage



When it comes to romance, Nigerian men are known to be actively engaging. Apart from their culture of carrying the financial burden of relationship with women, they harness every opportunity to appeal to their lovers, be it on social-network sites, in their respective offices, religious organizations, gym centers, parks, clubs among others.
   

Despite the many romantic attributes that could be said of men in Nigeria, women still hold a contrary account about them. Predominant among the contrary views women hold against men here is that no matter how romantic they are, getting them to the altar for marriage could be very challenging.
 
So, what are those factors that scare Nigerian men away from marriage? We have tried to compile some reasons that make most men feel jittery to converse on ‘Marriage’ as topic, feel free to add yours if not in our list.

1.
No wife materials
Common among some men is the reservation that there is scarcity of ‘wife-materials’ in Nigeria. In this case, they are not referring to ladies not being in quantifiable distribution among men, what they are complaining about is that most ladies of this generation lack the necessary attributes that will qualify them for the lifetime commitment called marriage. If this is the case, time of quality search can help heal the wound of such man.

2.
They get sex freely without marriage than in time past
Realizing now that they can get sex more easily than in times past, when ‘virginity’ for women was a pass value to marriage, some men now feel lot of women today have lost it when it comes to keeping themselves whole. But, this might not be the fault of women as promiscuity is not an exclusive act than can be carried out without the consent of either gender.

3.
Nigeria weddings are expensive
In a country where a man is expected to marry a woman in three different kinds of wedding- Religious, Traditional and Court, the cost of marriage no doubt is something men find very intimidating. As of last year, the average Nigeria wedding cost something like N500,000 and the it goes upward from that to more unimaginable cost. For most people, especially in this economy, that’s a lot of money. But all we advise is that men should try and cut their coat according to their material

4.
In search of a ‘working class’
Today, most Nigerian men are in search of a wife capable of  sharing financial responsibilities with them. Gone are the days when men marry ‘full-house-wives’, the increasing cost of  living has tilted most men in favor of ladies who have a means of livelihood and willing to share  with their man, the burden of building a home.

5.
Fear of freedom
There is a common belief among some men that marriage puts an end to one’s freedom. Single men today are much more proud about not being dependent and being on their own. They fear marriage because they will become answerable for every action they take to their spouse. That is one big responsibility some men are not ready to take up.

6.
Career
One of the predominant question most men will secretly ask themselves before making the decision to marry are, Will my partner make agitated about me being in office for long hours? Will he or she understand my love for my career? These are cogent questions and answering these questions could slow the decisive actions to be taken on marriage plans.

7.
Unrealistic Expectations from In-laws
Some parents have set certain standards for anyone who will marry their child, either way be it that such expectations are from the groom parent’s or bride, the regulations sometimes affect relationships. If the expectations are behavioral, the challenge might be little but e are some discouraging situations where parents decide the profession qualifications, properties, etc that must be acquired by the suitor before they can give out their child to him in marriage.

8.
Trust issues
Most times, people fear to get committed into a relationship because of trust issues. Some men have been bruised in their past relationships and therefore they don’t want to put themselves out there.

9.
Bad Testimonies from Married couple
Generally, most men get intimidated by marriage as a result of the testimonies they hear from those in marriage. Before getting into marriage talks, it is a common thing among men to ask their brothers, friends who are already married on how the social institution is and the testimonies they get are most times discouraging, as such they fear their marriage will be a replica of the testimonies they have gathered.

10.
Cultural limitations
Nigeria is a country with diverse culture and The diversity sometimes create challenges for men who are in search of women with similar culture. The good thing though is that those who endeavor to explore inter-cultural relationships get the opportunity to gain an in-depth appreciation of other customs.

Family of late Benue University Medical student release press statement

Many of you must have read the story of the Benue State University medical student that reportedly committed suicide. As usual, after verification of facts, I am out to set the record straight.  
The family of the late medical student has released an official statement that their son did not commit suicide. He was driving on Abu King Shuluwa Road, moving at a pretty high speed and without knowledge of a truck spoilt in the middle of the road. He tried to swerve out of the truck’s way but found himself facing the road divider.  
Without his belt on, Mr Idoko was flunged out of the car, sustained multiple fractures, a cracked skull and died on the spot. The car also hit and killed another commuter on the road while spinning out of control.
From where I’m sitting the above statement alone disqualifies it as a suicide, at least technically. It was an accident and another person’s life was also taken in the process. Nothing deliberate, no matter the circumstance confronting Nicholas before his death.
 His death has not been declared a suicide by the authorities or his family as many other national dailies would have us believe. I am not going to speak against plagiarism and the other numerous crimes we commit in the name of journalism without one iota of care to the consequences, at least not today. But when one of such consequences is spreading total falsehood about the life of a young man, even threatening to denigrate the image of his entire family it is time to put a stop to such lazy practices.

South African Police Beat Nigerian Man To Death

The President of Nigeria Union in South Africa, Ikechukwu Anyene, on Thursday, criticized the killing of a 30 year old Nigerian in Hillbrow, Johannesburg.
Mr Emeka Ezinteje, Public Relations Officer of the union, told NAN in Johannesburg that the union decried the incident after receiving the report.
NAN recalls that the Nigerian, Nonso Odo, from Amangwu-Nkwerre, Imo State, on Thursday, was allegedly beaten to death by South African Police officers.
Ezinteje said reports indicated that the deceased, who was a barber, quarreled with a fellow Nigerian in their business centre.
“After the quarrel, the fellow Nigerian stopped a police patrol team. The barber ran when he saw the patrol team.”
According to Ezinteje, the police patrol went after the victim; 30 minutes later, the police brought back the lifeless body of the barber.
“Not satisfied with the police report, some members of the union went to see the corpse in hospital.”
He said Sgt. Nengobeni, a South African police officer at the hospital, denied that the police killed him.
The officer said the police were flagged down by somebody while the victim took to his heels.
Nengobeni said by the time the police got to the victim, he was tired and gasping for breath and was pronounced dead on getting to the hospital.
Ezinteje said the union suspected foul play and would get to the root of the case.
“We have also received reports by eyewitnesses that Odo was beaten to death.”
“We have ordered a post mortem to ascertain the cause of Odo’s death. The union will also take this case to the Independent Police Investigative Department, for more investigation.”
“The department is responsible for investigating wrong doings by police officers,” he said.
He also said the incident had been reported to Nigeria`s Consulate General in Johannesburg and Hillbrow Police Station, also in Johannesburg.
