Read Time:1 Minute, 6 Second

With so many different characters under one roof it was only a matter of time before tensions would start mounting.

Now the once united Chasemates have been divided and can you believe that alcohol is the cause of it all. “There is division in the House because of the alcohol situation two or three days ago,”Elikem confessed to Big Brother during his Nomination Diary session this evening.

During her Diary session Annabel said: “There is two clear groups and I don’t want to be a part of either. I will probably end up being sidelined”.

Biggie was intrigued by this division and wanted to learn more about it, he then probedCleo for more info during her session. “Some people say that we should be divided according to the sharing of alcohol but I think it goes deeper than that. And if not then it will go deeper,” the Zambian said. “You can feel the bad energy,” she added.

From solemn look on her face it was clear that the young rapper is not happy about this division. She told Biggie, “It’s not right we should be united as Africans. As humans we should have humanity. It’s not right”.

BBA 2013: Where’s Oneza?

Read Time:47 Second

While all their fellow Housemates went through their day dancing up a storm, lovebirds Feza and Oneal spent some quality time in the bedroom. Oneza chose to sleep in, just like Nando, who finally got some shut eye after struggling to sleep for a couple of days now.

Their fellow Housemates didn’t seem to mind their absence too much though and entertained each other with loud conversation and energetic dance moves. When the time came for the Housemates to do their shopping, Oneal came down and added he and Feza’s groceries to the shopping list. As soon as he was done, he headed back up the stairs and into the bedroom, where he joined his waiting boo in bed.

Don’t you just miss Feza and Oneal’s analytics, as well as Nando’s eyebrow raising musings? We hope they wake up soon

Sulu showed off just how light footed and fancy free he can be.

Zambian Housemate Sulu comes alive in the daytime. While the Nominated Housemates were getting their hair styled in preparation for tonight’s Live Evictions,Sulu decided to give everyone a show. Unaware that he is facing the dreaded Eviction chop after Bimp Swapped himduring his HoH Save and Replace, the energetic Zambian wiggled his booty in time to the music.

Melvin sat back in a garden chair and watched the show unfold, his mouth curled in amusement. Beverly couldn’t hold herself back from laughing uproariously at Sulu’s sometimes dodgy dance moves. As soon as his beard was trimmed, Elikem stood to his feet and joined Sulu on the lawn. The two then worked it out for the cameras and were only a wiggle away from twerking.

After close to 15 minutes of dancing, the two Chasemates attempted to pull off some intricate Michael Jackson dance moves. As soon as Elikem showed off his take on the moonwalk, Sulu did the same.

BBA 2013: Who’s leaving tonight?

Read Time:53 Second

After a weekend filled with nothing but drama, the Housemates have another hurdle to contend with. Tonight’s Evictions.

Waiting for the dreaded chop on the gallows tonight are Sulu, Annabel and Elikem. All three Chasemates have performed exceptionally well since the season started and have been saved by Africa’s vote when it mattered most in the past. Tonight, someone’s luck is running out without a shadow of a doubt.

This morning, the possible Evictees seemed to have a lot on their minds as they got makeovers for their possible walk on the Live Eviction stage. Annabel got new tracks added to her already gorgeous blonde weave, while Elikem touched up his moustache dye job.

Cleo also got special treatment and got her locks tamed. Sulu, who is oblivious to the Head of House ’Save and Replace’ decision, which puts him in the line of fire, spent most of his morning dancing up a storm.

Who do you think is going home tonight?

BBA 2013: Nando’s babysitter

Read Time:58 Second


Bimp has taken on a role he never thought in a million years he would take on.

When Bimp came into the game, he probably didn’t imagine he would play the game and be a bouncer at the same time. For the past two nights the Ethiopian has sacrificed sleep and fun times to be his best friend Nando’s security guard and babysitter.

The Chasemate has been on hand babysitting the outspoken Tanzanian, who is in the throes of a with Ghana’s Elikem .

Nando has battled insomnia for the past couple of days and it has evidently gotten worse since his fight with Elikem broke out on Friday night. Bimp’s bed is next to Nando’s and since the fight went down, the Ethiopian has been keeping an eagle eye on the unpredictable Housemate.

Every night, Nando has tossed and turned and every time he makes a move, Bimp is always there asking him where he is going and has even accompanied him to other parts of the House where he just might start trouble.

Oh dear!

Nigeria: Manufacturers raise concern over charges on BoI loans

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 50 Second

Manufacturers Association of Nigeria, MAN Ikeja branch, has expressed concern over numerous charges their members are made to pay to secure the Bank of Industry, BoI, loans, calling for immediate review and possible reduction.

Expressing this position at a business luncheon for chief executives and managing directors of manufacturing companies under the chapter, the chairman, Rev. Isaac Ade Agoye, said the problem has the capacity of inhibiting their collective growth as manufacturers, as well as hamper the survival of the real sector if unattended.

He noted that in all, manufacturers pay as much as 21.125 percent interest on BoI’s loans, saying, ‘We consider these surcharges as too cumbersome and demanding, hence we invited the BoI management for enlightenment.”

“We believe that if manufacturing is made easy and less cumbersome by way of accessibility of loans, manufacturers will obviously be encouraged and this could act as a stop-gap measure for militating the high rate of unemployment. We have the capacity to do so, all we need is encouragement,” Agoye added.

Going forward, he said that the association would form a working committee that would collaborate with the management of BoI to fathom ways of either eliminating or reducing those surcharges to the barest minimum.

He implored the management of BoI to look at the various surcharges with a view of doing away with some of them that are inimical and irrelevant to the exercise of lending, adding that, ‘a situation where charges on loans amount to 21.215 percent and above is certainly worrisome.

Speaking on the theme of the programme, “Bridging the Gap between Manufacturing and the Bank of Industry”, the Managing Director, BoI, Ms Evelyn Oputu, represented by Mohammed Alkali, ED, Operations, said that interest charges on loans do not constitute as much problem as infrastructural problem, generating own power and lack of incentives.

She assured that as part of incentivising the real sector, the BoI is engaging in continuous advocacy with all stakeholders towards improving the operational environment, adding that the bank leverages international resources for the development of the real sector in the country through collaboration with UNIDO, UNDP and AGOA among others.

Ngerian Scholars frown at takeover of Rivers Assembly

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 54 Second

Some scholars on Sunday described National Assembly’s takeover of the statutory functions of the Rivers State House of Assembly as  a violation of the people’s rights.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the National Assembly on Thursday took over the functions of the Rivers State House of Assembly in a bid to tackle the crisis rocking the state.

The Senate which announced the development said that the action was pursuant to Section 11(4) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).

It said that the National Assembly would take charge pending resolution of the political crisis in the state.

The Head, Department of Political Science, University of Lagos, Prof. Solomon Akinboye, told NAN that the action was unfortunate and violated the rights of Rivers people.

“Taking over the functions of the house is not the solution to the crisis. The situation is becoming more chaotic and calls for concern.

“The people of Rivers should be able to settle their issues internally and amicably in order to move forward,’’ he said.

Dr Samuel Ugo, Senior Lecturer, also of the Department of Political Science, University of Lagos, alleged that the action was a ploy to get rid of the state government.

Ugo said that the takeover meant that decisions on issues concerning the state would henceforth be taken by the National Assembly.

He expressed the worry that the situation may degenerate into declaration of a state of emergency in the state, whereby the governor would be suspended until return of normalcy.

Prof. Yomi Akinyeye, a Professor of History and Strategic Studies, University of Lagos, also frowned at the development.

He said that the National Assembly’s action was indirect declaration of a state of emergency in Rivers.

“It is only where there are security concerns and a perceived breakdown of law and order that such a decision could be taken.

“One expected the National Assembly to help in putting adequate machineries in place to investigate the issues that led to the crisis.’’

The don added that some members of the public expected the National Assembly to apportion blames where necessary and make a way for the house of assembly to function well,” he said.
