Nollywood Star Actress, Yvonne Nelson Suffers Depression

Nollywood Star Actress, Yvonne Nelson Suffers Depression

A birthday is always a day to be happy, but it is not the same with Nollywood cum Ghollywood star actress, Yvonne Nelson.
The leggy former model turned actress recently revealed in a chat that turning 30 may be a remarkable landmark for her as a woman but it is obviously getting her depressed.

In an interview on a special edition of Route919 on Live 91.9 FM, Yvonne disclosed that hitting the 30-year-old mark as a woman can be quite depressing.
“I’m blessed to be 30 years but I feel depressed. I actually called my mom and said oh my God I am 30 years. As a woman, it was depressing for me,” she said.

Depression may not be a trending medical issue in this part of the world, but if this is in any way serious, we do hope that Yvonne will get the necessary therapy.
Some people are speculating that maybe the single status of the actress was the cause of her state of depression.
The Ghanaian actress was once in a relationship with Nigeria pop singer, Iyanya. The duo dated for a while and while their relationship lasted, Iyanya dedicated a track, Your Waist, to her in 2012.

Oscar Pistorius Conviction Upgraded To Murder

Oscar Pistorius Conviction Upgraded To Murder
Closing Summary

Oscar Pistorius has been found guilty of the murder of Reeva Steenkamp, in an appeal court ruling that set aside his original conviction for culpable homicide:

"As a result of the errors of law and on a proper appraisal of the facts, he ought to have been convicted not of culpable homicide on that count but of murder.

In the interests of justice the conviction and the sentence imposed in respect thereof must be set aside and the conviction substituted with a conviction of the correct offence."
Oscar Pistorius Conviction Upgraded To Murder

Oscar Pistorius's conviction for killing Reeva Steenkamp is upgraded to murder.

* The five judges, who were unanimous in their verdict, said Pistorius' evidence and explanations for killing Steenkamp were "implausible" and he had "never offered an acceptable explanation" for firing four times through a closed door.

* The appeal court said the original trial judge, Thokozile Masipa, had been wrong on several points of law, chief among them her conclusion that Pistorius had not foreseen that his actions could kill somebody (dolus eventualis).

Oscar Pistorius Conviction Upgraded To Murder

* Justice Eric Leach, reading the ruling on behalf of the bench, said:

"I have no doubt the accused must have foreseen and therefore did foresee that whoever was behind that door might die."

* The judges said it was clear that Pistorius had criminal intent in firing, and was therefore guilty of murder by dolus eventualis (see here for what that means).

* Pistorius, who was not at the supreme court in Bloemfontein to hear the ruling, will have to appear at the high court in Pretoria for fresh sentencing by Masipa.

* Until then, he is likely to stay under house arrest at his uncle's home and will not immediately return to prison.

Amber Rose channels feminist icons in sexy shoot for Paper mag

Amber channels Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman Hughes and more feminist icons in the Dec/Jan issue of Paper magazine, with pretty story on why the single mother went all feminist on us this year. Speaking about why she decided to be a slut shamer and identify as a feminist, Amber said;
"I would look on [Wiz's] Instagram and he would have pictures of all these women all over him… and then I would post a picture of me and my son. And people would be like, 'Does your son know that his mother's a whore?'" she says. "People are like, 'Wiz is out f***ing mad bad b***hes and you're at home crying over him because he's the best thing that f***ing ever happened to you and now you're just a fat, bald-headed single mother and no one will ever love you.' So yeah, I guess months of seeing s**t like that, I was just like, 'I can't live like this. There's something wrong.'" More pictures below;

'Call reckless Governor Oshiomole to order' - Okonjo-Iweala tells Buhari

'Call reckless Governor Oshiomole to order' - Okonjo-Iweala tells Buhari

Former Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has called on the Buhari-led government to caution Edo state governor Adams Oshiomole over his remarks about her person. Okonjo-Iweala said this while reacting to Oshiomole's interview with Leadership newspapers published today where he said the former Minister ought to be prosecuted in connection with the $2.1 billion arms deal probe. Okonjo-Iweala's reaction is contained in a statement signed by her media aide, Paul Nwabuiwku below...

Former Minister of Finance, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has requested the Federal Government to call Edo State Governor, Mr Adams Oshiomhole to order over the Governor's recent efforts to link her name to the alleged $2.1 billion arms issue.

The Minister stressed that she has absolutely nothing to do with the issue.

She stated that it is an abuse of public office, the judicial process and her human rights for Governor Oshiomhole whom she stopped from taking a highly suspicious N15 billion loan to make false allegations against her while hiding behind the constitutional immunity granted state governors.

As recently confirmed by the Debt Management Office, professional analysis showed that Oshiomhole's loan request which was based on using low interest World Bank loan to offset high interest commercial loans would have left Edo state with a heavy debt burden and the the state would have found it very difficult to pay back.

She said that it is unconscionable for the Governor to embark on a campaign of lies against her because she thwarted his dubious loan request.

She described the Governor's unsubstantiated allegations as a cynical personalization of the anti-corruption campaign to achieve ignoble objectives.

Dr Okonjo-Iweala therefore put Oshiomhole and his ilk on notice that she has briefed her lawyers and that she is ready to explore all legal means, local and international, to defend her name against corrupt and compromised persons.

It has become a pattern of behavior that each time Dr. Ngozi OKonjo-Iweala is internationally recognized, Governor Oshiomole and his cohorts embark on a cynical and devious ploy of trying to pull her down locally. Just last night, December 1st, Dr Okonjo-Iweala was honored at a high profile event attended by Vice President Joe Biden and former President Bill Clinton. Dr Okonjo Iweala was honored alongside Michael Bloomberg, Bill and Melinda Gates and Mo Ibrahim for their contributions to global development and humanity.

Gov Oshiomole and his cohorts should realize that their ill-motivated attempts to taint Dr Okonjo Iweala's reputation will never succeed!

Media Adviser to Dr. Okonjo-Iweala
