TOKE MAKINWA, MAJE AYIDA SET FOR ALTAR


Wedding bells are set to ring for Toke Makinwa, anchor of an early morning show on Rhythm 93.7 FM and Maje Ayida, the famous son of former Secretary to the Federal Government, Allison Ayida.
All things being equal, the lovebirds will walk down the aisle in a classy marital ceremony in December.
Preparations are already in top gear. Details of the wedding are still sketchy, but we have it on good authority that they have been talking freely about their proposed union after their engagement a few days ago.
The lovebirds were said to have met about eight years ago through Sola Ojora at a party. Toke was then a student at the University of Lagos while Maje was a young man trying to start a new life after school.
A few weeks later, they started dating and Maje finally sealed the relationship by proposing marriage. The duo were said to have gone out for dinner after which they retired to Maje's apartment where he brought out a ring, knelt down and asked Toke to marry him.
Tole is an on-air personality with a high number of followers on her show, Early Morning Drive on Rhythm FM. She is also a TV personality and one of the presenters of 3 Livechicks. Maje is the CEO of Eden Lifestyle Health Fitness on Victoria Island, Lagos.

5 NEW TATTOO DESIGNS YOU HAVE TO SEE

 I am not a lover of tattoo though because of my Christian background, but I found this post interesting, that is why I decided to share it.
So for all those newbies out there, read this guide before getting your first tat. Anyway, I haven’t found an idea that's worth putting on my body permanently.

COLORLESS CONTRAST
Colorless Contrast
While wrist tattoos are a popular option, you can make yours unique by using white ink. Keep in mind, these tattoos tend to fade over time, and look somewhat scar-like. Your best bet is to get something small that doesn't need much filling.

HOW TO ACCESSORIZE YOUR WEDDING GOWN


A quickie wedding is no reason why any bride should look drab. For that gorgeous once in a lifetime look, a fabulous dress is just the answer. Just remember the first rule in wedding accessory: Don't overdo it. It's tempting to load up on baubles and bling, but you don't want all those precious metals to outshine you on the big day. Follow these simple steps and you'll look like royalty without looking like you've raided the queen's closet.

SHOW YOUR TRUE COLORS
Knowing what type of metal will work with your wedding dress’s shade of white is a good way to begin choosing your wedding jewelry.
White Gown: Gold embellishments may clash with this bright white hue. We suggest sticking to pearl and platinum.
Diamond-white Gown: This barely off-white color works with gold and silver (and rose gold, and pearl -- you get the idea).
Ivory Gown: This candlelight shade is a soft, light white, and some versions even have yellow undertones. Adorn yourself with gold jewelry to highlight the creamy tint of the fabric.

CONFIRMED: KELLY ROWLAND NOT RETURNING TO THE X FACTOR


Kelly Rowland will not be returning to The X Factor, it has been confirmed.
A statement released by her publicist read: "After much speculation, we can officially confirm today that Kelly Rowland has decided not to return as a judge again for this year's UK X Factor. Global commitments coupled with the show's increasing demands this year mean that, despite weeks of deliberation with the show, Kelly has not been able to agree a deal that fits into her autumn/winter schedule, so sadly cannot accept a place on the 2012 panel.
"Kelly thoroughly enjoyed her role as a judge on the show, but felt that if there couldn't be a workable solution to scheduling issues, so that she could effectively juggle her other commitments then she couldn't wholeheartedly commit to the show this year." 
Kelly Rowland herself added: "I love the UK and being part of the show last year. Mentoring the girls was such an incredible experience I will never forget.  I would like to thank Simon [Cowell] for the great opportunity and asking me to be a judge last season."
Katy Perry is now apparently in the running to replace Kelly Rowland on The X Factor, Louis Walsh has revealed.

SUCCESS CAPSULE: START WITH WHAT YOU HAVE


Most of us don't take bold steps towards the acquisition of riches because we believe that we don't have what we need to start with. 

 As long as we focus on what we don't have, we will never start.

Dear friend, your greatest capital is your spiritual, mental and physical capacity. You can think through. 

You can do something with your hands. You can sell some items. You can work for free in your dream organization. 

Just do something to add value somewhere. 

Take a small step and God will turn it int. a giant step towards financial freedom.

You will succeed in Jesus name. 

God bless you.

"The kids have been asking when they're going to get married for years. Now they are pretty much the main reason Brad and Angelina are tying the knot."

YES, KAREN IGHO IS ENGAGED!!!


We have followed with intrigue in the past few days, rumours and gist circulating on the supposed ‘Engagement of Ms Karen Igho to a Mystery man’ following her tweets on Twitter. Ms Karen Igho has requested that this news statement be made available to the public on the matter.
Ms Igho appreciates the curiosity and goodwill displayed by her fans, critics and friends in the media regarding her affairs; she however prefers to keep details on her ‘relationship’ intentions away from the public glare until when appropriate. However, to clear the air on the alleged tweets, they were random thoughts from Ms Karen Igho after an admirer and fan proposed to her. Celebrities often experience the same thing; Ms Igho only tweeted about one of such experience randomly.
In the meantime, Ms Karen Igho is actively evolving her brand name and business while taking on active roles in Nollywood and other related entertainment initiatives across Africa.
Hence, Ms Karen Igho reaffirms, “I am not married yet; but I am fully engaged to my passion in entertainment - acting and modeling; while actively promoting good causes and charity”.
Thank you.
