Huge congratulations to award winning Nigerian makeup artist, Bimpe Onakoya and hubby. The new mom who shared the good news and pictures on her social media page declined to talk about her new bundles of joy.

Here is what she told NetNg when they contacted her:

‘I’m not talking about my babies. I am not a celebrity. I just gave birth to them yesterday
and I don’t want to talk about my life.
I only uploaded the photo on Facebook for my family, that is why it is not on my Twitter and Instagram,’ she added.


Y'all remember that she and her hubby were robbed at gun point in Johannesburg, South Africa sometime in June of this year. I don't fault her decision jare.

God bless the babies and the family.

'The Message of The Song Upsets Me' - Janine Udogu Pens Down Review About PSquare's song, 'BANK ALERT'


If you haven't seen the visual to 'Bank Alert' by Nigerian singing duo, Psquare.. CLICK HERE

Switzerland based founder of Nigerian Heroes blog, Janine Udogu penned down her thoughts about the message of the wave making song on her facebook page. Read below.....
"Dear P-Square

Even though I am really a big fan of your music I cannot watch your latest music video without feeling disappointed. It is not that I don’t like the beating or the melody, it is the message of the song that upsets me. You sing about a man who promises his fiancĂ© to come and marry her in a year, because he wants to go abroad and make some money before his return. When he comes for her hand in marriage 5 years later, he comes as a billionaire, flying a private jet and driving around town with a huge entourage, throwing money at people and living in huge mansion.

In a time where parts of Nigeria are at war and everyone is facing a recession, where people are struggling to buy a bag of rice and unemployment rate is as high as ever. In a time where electricity still is a privilege and quality healthcare is only affordable for the rich. A time where many children cannot afford to go to school and where bad roads and corrupt police officers stop you from moving around freely. In a time where thousands of Nigerians flee the country every month looking for a better future abroad, you are making a song that promotes the success one can have abroad.

Did you tell them that since 2008 over 40’000 migrants have drowned in the Mediterranean see, many of them Nigerians?

Did you tell them how many loose their lives in the desert or on the road heading abroad?

Did you tell them that even those who make it to Europe, will lack food and housing or be treated like criminals facing prison and detention just for the fact that they came here?

Did you tell them that the only way to stay in Europe legally is by getting married to “onye ocha”, whether young, old, slim, fat, mentally ill or healthy! What will those men tell their fiancĂ© in Nigeria on return, having wasted many years servicing a woman they don’t love, just for the sake of paper. Maybe there will be kids involved, kids who will never come to see their fathers land. Who will not be speaking their father’s language or know their fathers culture. Children who will grow up not knowing their roots, because their father will eventually return to Nigeria and marry that woman he wanted to marry in the first place.

And did you tell them that 99% of all those men coming home from abroad as rich men have made their cash selling drugs, doing 419 or were involved in other criminal acts.
Why are you promoting this lifestyle?

I know that your music is meant to entertain and that you cannot combine a sad text with a happy melody. But rather than to sugarcoat the life abroad why don’t you give people hope within their own country? You could sing about all the Nigerian Heroes. There are so many untold success stories WITHIN Nigeria. So many hard working people, who started out with nothing, that are successful today. So many talents and skilled people who need role models. But who do they have to look up to? Criminals or dead people? I believe that it is YOUR responsibility being superstars to tell them that there is hope! If you give up on them and tell them that only abroad one can make it, they will give up too. Nigerians have to start to change the way they see themselves and you have the crowd that listens!"

#MercyTravels: Sneak Peek of My Summer Vacation In Canada


Although summer has officially ended, its memory will linger on for a long time. I had a choice of going to either UK, Dubai or Canada for a mini-vacation, and since Canada is the closest to the States, I decided to pay a visit to our neighbor.

The initial plan was for me to go see the beautiful mountains in Montreal, Quebec, but I opted for Toronto, Ontario because of the Naigara Falls. If you know me so well, you will know how much I love American Airlines, come rain, or sunshine. Even though I wanted to take Air Canada, I changed my mind after I read the negative reviews from past passengers.

Back to the matter, Toronto is one of the many cities in the world that boast of lovely views and good roads. I loved the city from the first day I arrived there, till the day I baded my adios.

Niagara Falls is one beauty of nature you don't want to miss if you visit Ontario. Even though my trip was very short, I enjoyed every bit of it. I shared most of the memories (both photos and video) on my Instagram page, with hashtag #MyTorontoExperience #YankeeGirlInCanada #MercyTravels You can click those hashtags on Instagram to see how excited I was to see the Niagara Fall for the first time. Meanwhile, here is the sneak peek (pictures) of the trip for your perusal below...

Bizarre! Pastor Slaps Church Members For Attending Another Church For One Day


I was scrolling through the internet for my usual aproko when I found this bizarre story. The twitter user who shared the story is as surprised or confused as we are. See her tweet below...



Someone said, endtime church.  Lol.. na wa o, na real wa sef.

But wait o, are they in some sort of covenant or contract with the church or the pastor himself? Did the church has a constitution that forbids its members from attending another church for one day?

A TASTE OF NIGERIA HOLDS IN TEXAS, ANNOUNCES NEW VENUE...


A Taste of Nigeria, presented by Arispop, announces new changes to its third annual festival, which holds on October 8, 2016, from 12 to 8 p.m.

Surpassing the beginning woes that new festival organizers face, A Taste of Nigeria will address the issue of space with a new venue: the Airhog Stadium, located at 1600 Lone Star Parkway in Grand Prairie. For the previous two years, it was held on the grounds of the Knights of Columbus in Arlington.

In addition to the location, a variety of family-friendly entertainment and activities will showcase the Nigerian culture. Vendors will present Nigerian art, food, and fashion. Spectators can enjoy a soccer game between Leones FC Football Team and Hope United Football Team. A fashion show spotlighting designs by MaE9 Styling and Design Studio, Dumbaka Fashions, and Shalewa Fashions will provide a splash of color to the festivities.

This year, one of the special guests will be the famed Nigerian-born, Los Angeles-based musician Mike Okri. Okri, who was slated as “arguably one of the best singers ever produced in the country” according to Vanguard Media, was a constant fixture in the 1990s. Upon releasing the chart-selling albums Rhumba Dance and Cracks, Okri won numerous awards including the Nigerian Music Awards, Fame Music Award, and the Pan-African Music Awards. Okri is one of a host of musical talents who will perform at A Taste of Nigeria. Others include DJ Freaky T and LaWale Victory and The Victorious Band. Other confirmed performers include Ify the Performer, Ndidi Ogbechie, Seye, and Double O Productions. Comedian Naijamericana (Don Manuel) and model and actress Mary Ekene will host the event.

Advance tickets can be purchased online. Adult tickets are $5 each, kids are $3 each and children three and under get in free. Ticket prices increase when purchased the day of the event. Adult tickets will be $10 each, and kids are $5 each. For more information, visit www.atasteofnigeria.com.

Picture illustration: What is Breast Cancer?


I found this article (below) on Instagram and I thought I should share it on this platform. #GetInformed

WHAT IS BREAST CANCER? 
Breast cancer starts when cells in the breast begin to grow out of control. These cells usually form a tumor that can often be seen on an x-ray or felt as a lump. The tumor is malignant (cancerous) if the cells can grow into (invade) surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body. 

Breast cancer occurs almost entirely in women, but men can get it, too. Cells in nearly any part of the body can become cancer, and can spread to other areas of the body. To learn more about how all cancers start and spread, see What Is Cancer? This information refers only to breast cancer in women. 

Breast cancers can start from different parts of the breast. Most breast cancers begin in the ducts that carry milk to the nipple (ductal cancers). Some start in the glands that make breast milk (lobular cancers).There are also other types of breast cancer that are less common. A small number of cancers start in other tissues in the breast. These cancers are called sarcomas and lymphomas and are not really thought of as breast cancers. Although many types of breast cancer can cause a lump in the breast, not all do. 

There are other symptoms of breast cancer you should watch out for and report to a health care provider. It’s also important to understand that most breast lumps are not cancer, they are benign. Benign breast tumors are abnormal growths, but they do not spread outside of the breast and they are not life threatening. But some benign breast lumps can increase a woman's risk of getting breast cancer. 

Any breast lump or change needs to be checked by a health care provider to determine whether it is benign or cancer, and whether it might impact your future cancer risk
