NOLLYWOOD ACTRESS, INI EDO OPENS UP ON CRASHED MARRIAGE


Nollywood actress, Ini Edo, has maintained a low profile ever since her marriage crashed, with many alleging she is the cause of the breakup.
Reports have it that the actress, who attended the Golden Icons African Movie Awards (GIAMA), which held in Houston, Texas, United States, last month, practically avoided the red carpet. She was also said to be in low spirit throughout the exciting show.   Ini Edo, responding to rumours of infidelity as reason for her crashed marriage said, "I have always been a one-man lady."
She said she is "usually at a loss' when she reads stories about her sexual relationships." It is really astonishing when people just manufacture stories, give them legs and let them fly when they know the stories are absolutely false."

The thespian who was recently voted as Nollywood's Sexiest Actress noted that it is legitimate for men to have designs and desires on stars, but that does not translate to falling for every man that makes advances.

"I was raised well by my parents and I have always been a one-man lady. All the sexual shenanigans that the media have associated me with are all false. The problem with our journalist is that, if they saw you at a coffee shop with a man, just any man, even if that man is your cousin or brother, they will automatically assume that he is your new lover, and without asking questions, will rush to publish that you were seen at a coffee shop with a new lover."
She said she has lost count of the number of such innocent outings with family members or friends that the media has misconstrued.

THREE STEPS TO CREATE WEALTH – PASTOR SAM ADEYEMI


It has been said that knowledge is potential. When you apply knowledge to something, you experience the power within it. Do you often see abundance or lack? Below are basic fundamentals for wealth creation.

DEVELOP ABUNDANCE MENTALITY: It must begin from your thinking before it can affect your circumstances and resources. Anywhere you come across scarcity, know it is artificial. Don’t accept it as your reality.

SECONDLY, WORK OR TRADE TO EARN MONEY: If you have been living in an unrealistic world, expecting money to flow to you even though you’re doing nothing, wake up to reality. You do not get something for nothing.

AND THEN, MANAGE AND MULTIPLY THE MONEY THAT YOU EARN: You must think differently, and there must be something that you are going to do from what your parents did if your financial situation is going to be better than theirs. Some of us come from wealthy families; fantastic. Build on the wealth. Earn the money, manage it well, save some, invest and multiply it.

SKINCARE TALK WITH BOLA AKINBOADE-BELLO: HOW TO HAVE A GLOWING SKIN



Do you desire for a naturally gorgeous complexion? Do you wish that you had absolutely beautiful, glowing skin? Follow the tips below and you will definitely get a flawless skin.

EAT A HEALTHY DIET: Healthy proteins and nutritious fruits and vegetables go a long way toward making skin glow. Add these elements to your diet to see quick results:
Omega 3 fatty acids. These are found in fish and walnuts, and are especially beneficial to your skin.

DRINK 6 TO 8 GLASSES OF WATER A DAY:  The water will clear your skin and make it glow because it makes it easier for your body to flush out toxins quickly.
Carry a water bottle with you all day to make sure you always have water on hand.
Drink herbal tea or other non-caffeinated beverages to hydrate when you're tired of water.

 WASH YOUR FACE AT NIGHT: Over the course of the day, makeup, dirt, and oil build up on your face. Make cleansing your skin part of your bedtime routine. Use makeup remover. Not only does this prevent it from clogging up your pores and causing breakouts while you sleep, it also stops you from smearing bacteria on your pillow — where it can get into your skin night after night.
