Boko Haram Capture Gwoza Town, Borno State, Kill About 100

Heavily-armed fighters, suspected to be the members of the Islamist Boko Haram sect, launched an assault on Gwoza town, Borno State, in the early hours of August 6, 2014, Wednesday.

According to the sources of SaharaReporters, the operation has been completed successfully, as the terrorists were able to capture the settlement, killing around 100 of its residents in the process. Many aged people, women and children were among the victims.

An unnamed resident of Gwoza, while speaking in Kanuri with a reporter, informed that he was able to escape the besieged town safely.

“Soldiers guarding us just went away as the militants advanced against our town.

“If this continues, then all of us will soon be without a place to call home,” he said.

The survivor confirmed that those who escaped the Boko Haram attack have now turned into refugees.

The troops of the Nigerian Army were reportedly overpowered by the properly-armed insurgents.

It is not the first time Boko Haram make Nigerian Army abandon a town. On July 18, Friday, a large group of fighters attacked Damboa town, killing several residents and forcing the army to retreat. Boko Haram hoisted their black and white flags to mark their control of the area.

UK Model Selling £10,000 Tickets For Fans To See Her GIVE BIRTH… And Tickets SELL OUT (PHOTOS)

Scrounger mum Josie Cunningham has sold FOUR tickets to fans who wish to watch her give birth.

3AM have exclusively learned that the Leeds-born wannabe has made a whopping £30,000 from selling tickets to three journalists and one superfan (yes, really).

Josie has sold two £10,000 tickets – which allow spectators to film the birth, and two £5,000 tickets – which only allow people to watch.

We have no idea why anybody would want to do either.

Josie Cunnigham

Josie’s agent confirmed tickets to Josie’s birth have now sold out.

“She will use the money she makes to pay back the NHS for her treatments,” he confirmed.

The wannabe glamour model, who first hit the headlines after having a £4,800 boob job on the NHS, was left annoyed when a deal to sell DVDs of her labour with a pound shop fell through.

Josie, whose baby boy is due in October, told Closer magazine: “I was gutted when the DVD deal was pulled – I was set to make thousands and wanted to share the precious experience. I realised the next best thing would be to sell tickets of me giving birth at home.

“I’ve had a bit of interest already. I’m selling two tickets at £5k each and two at £10k, which are VIP.

“All tickets will include travel and accommodation and the pricer ones will entitle the ticket holder to film the birth and take photos.

“I’ll use the money to pay back the NHS for my surgery and will spend the rest on my kids.”

The fame-hungry brunette originally planned to abort her unborn baby because she thought it would ruin her chances of going into the Big Brother house, but she later changed her mind and decided to keep it.

Incredibly, Josie, 23, already has a ‘super fan’ (yes, there actually is one) who has bought a ticket to this bizarre event.

Paul Mills-Ash, 29, said: “I’ve followed Josie’s career since she first came into the public eye. I’m using my savings to buy a £5k ticket. It’s a lot of money but it’s worth it. It’ll be great to say I was at the birth in years to come.”

The Elevator Fight Between Beyonce’s Sister Solange And Jay Z Was Over RIHANNA!

image

Yeah.. that fight that took the internet by storm.

After a lot of speculations behind the elevator fiasco between Beyonce’s husband Jay Z and her sister Solange Knowles at the Met Ball in May, 2014, a source close to the A-list couple claims the fight was over Rihanna.

Shocking right?

People try to pretend as though Jay Z’s the perfect husband, even though sources claim that his image couldn’t be further from the truth.

According to the source, Solange and Jay Z fight sparked after rapper made plans to attend Rihanna’s Met Gala after-party without Beyonce.

“Solange was like, ‘Enough is enough — you must be [screwing] Rihanna’,” says the source.

There has also been a lot of rumors about the nature of Rihanna’s relationship with Jay-Z, and her feelings about Beyonce. Many tabloids have reported on a ‘feud’ between Rihanna and Beyonce, but for now remain only rumours.

Despite their denial, the news of their 12-year relationship being on the verge of crumbling has rocked the internet for a while now but the couple who are currently on tour are putting up a bold front and doing everything possible to make their marriage work.

We all hope and pray that this news is one of those internet false stories.

(Must Read) Advice For Wizkid From His Fan

image

There is a popular saying that be nice to those you meet when going up because when you are going down, u are going to meet them. What is really happening to Wizkid and his new attitude? What is really going on with his career as things are not as it used to be? He rain curses on his fans now, refer to those who buy his songs and pay to see him perfom as “broke” and engage in periodic tweet fights on twitter and instagram.
Back then you dare not abuse Wizzy or you will get popular immediately because he had a squad of die hard fan base who were loyal to him but now things have changed. These are the same fans who used to always support Star boy, now they have suddenly switched lanes and are supporting his main rival – Davido.

It is not about hanging out with Chris Brown, Akon and co, if you do not have the respect from your fans who made you then you are a nobody. Wizkid has suddenly turned to a god but can we really blame him? Since he dropped holla at your boy, he has been pretty consistent even with just 1 album to his name and has been doing well till date but his fans are no longer interested in what he has to offer anymore.

Anytime Wizkid is now trending on twitter, it is not a new song or video but its because he is fighting with fans because he feels he is the god of music and he has gotten so comfortable that his attitude makes him look weak. Bombay, Show you the money and Jeje the newest songs he is promoting are good songs but years back they would have been national anthems but his fans are not showing too much zeal.
Some bloggers did not even broadcast the link or show him love like before, he acts like he does not need anyone and that is a bad move.

Dear wizkid, do you think you are bigger than Tuface or the African market? All the time Tuface was getting girls pregnant and his fans were cursing him, he did not reply them with a word. Don’t u have a good management anymore? don’t you have good advisers ? Visit Kim kardashians page on instagram and see the curses she gets on every picture and you will appreciate Jehovah Jireh. You should learn to Ignore bad comments and start adding more energy to your work. As a professional Dj and a part time blogger, i have been in entertainment before you and from experience i want to know that there are over 10,000 upcoming musicians who are better than you and want to be in your spot, if u loose your fans to another artiste, you will spend another 5 years trying to do a come back like Tony tetuila, Azadus, Faze and that the rest of them.
Do not forget that human beings are natural prostitutes, we go for only what is in vogue. If u dare allow your fans leave you, there will be nothing Chris brown and Wale can do for you because you cannot even survive in the American market. Ask your uncle D’banj who has an experience with Good muzik. Focus on making better music and apologize to your fans, is that too much for you to do?

Mariah Carey showed off her ample cleavage and washboard abs in a beaded crop top and pink sarong in an image she tweeted at 2am from New York on Saturday

She sure knows how to spice up a 4th of July party.

Mariah Carey showed off her cleavage and washboard abs in a beaded crop top and pink sarong in an image she tweeted from New York on Saturday.

The clock on the wall indicated the time at 1:45 a.m., though she shared the photo around 2 a.m.

See more pictures below the cut

The 44-year-old pop star also donned a brown shrug over what appeared to be a belly dancing inspired outfit.

The Hero hitmaker wore a sunflower tucked in her long flowing hair, as she posed next to a table set with potted blossoms.

She captioned the image: ‘Happy independence day!!! We miss you ARC.’

Shortly after, Mariah tweeted a second image posed in the same outfit while climbing a flight of stairs, with her three-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan ahead of her in their pajamas.

The mother-of-two wrote: ‘Mommy migrates from the party to club Roc & Roe!’

Despite being every inch the doting mother, Mariah didn’t always want children according to The Huffington Post, and only changed her mind later in life.

Mariah’s husband Nick Cannon, 33, recently sang his wife’s praises, telling the publication: ‘It’s kind of cool I got a chance to bring that side out of my wife, because she’s so nurturing and amazing.

‘Not only does she get to be the biggest global singer in the world, but she also gets to be a wonderful mom.’

Furthermore, Mariah’s children may be following in her famous footsteps.

After all, Monroe and Moroccan are featured on her fourteenth studio album, which debuted in May, called: Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse.

‘It’s a song that I wrote with Bryan-Michael Cox and Jermaine Dupri. There’s a part that Jermaine says on the song that [the kids] loved, and Monroe started to say it,’ Mariah told People in February.

‘I kept having to get my iPhone and record her. So I have all these different takes of her saying things, singing things. Then I’d be like, “This is your new ad lib — learn it!” I have to make it fun for her.’

Revealed! Why Kanye West performs with a mask on

image

Kanye West has had many wondering why he performs with a mask on..Well during one of his rants at the Wireless festival in London, he explained why…

You know damn well no black guys or celebrities making Louis Vuitton nothing. They let Pharrell make those Louis Vuitton glasses, and we liked ’em, right? They let me make those Louis Vuitton shoes and we liked ’em, right? They said, ‘No, no, no nigga. Not no more. That’s too much. Stay in your place. Stand in front of that show and wear this jacket I made you. Stay in your place! Do what you’re paid to do! Don’t embarrass yourself trying to chase your dreams. Save face.That’s why I got this fucking mask on. Cause I ain’t worried about saving face. Fuck my face! That sounded wrong. Pause. They finally got a headline. But fuck whatever my face is supposed to mean and fuck whatever the name Kanye is supposed to mean, it’s about my dreams! It’s about anybody’s dreams. It’s about creating. It’s not about the idea about being a f-cking celebrity, it’s not about the idea of being a black man trying to do fashion and shit.

10 People You Know Who Recently Became Billionaires

image

We’re not sure what’s been in the water lately, but there seems to be an upsurge in billionaires — and we’d love to have a sip!

A whole cluster of entrepreneurs have added an extra zero to their net worth. Due to a few smart investments and well-played business moves, these people have now moved on up. Must be nice to be among the Gates, Winfreys, and Bloombergs.

Michael Jordan, as you may already know, has been initiated into the Billionaire Boys Club — thanks to his increased stake in the Charlotte Hornets. But who else has moved on up lately? MadameNoire Biz has got the scoop!

1. Sheryl Sandberg

While Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer of Facebook, has been urging us to Lean In, she’s been leaning back on $1 billion in fortunes since January of this year, Time reports. She owns nearly 12.3 million shares of the popular social network; her stake is worth a whopping $750 million. When Facebook’s stock closed at a record high of $58.51 on Jan. 21, Sandberg became one of the world’s youngest billionaires at the age of 44. She currently has a net worth of $1.6 billion.

2. Reed Hastings

While millions of Netflix subscribers indulge in House of Cards or Orange Is the New Black, Reed Hastings, co-founder of the video streaming and DVD rental company, is reeling in all the cash. Netflix’s stock surged to over $400 a share — and so did Hastings’ net worth, which has surpassed $1 billion. According to Forbes, Hastings nabbed $900 million in Netflix stock and options plus an additional $100 million in other assets. “Call him the first on-demand billionaire,” Forbes said.

3. Janet Jackson

Last May, the internet was abuzz about Janet Jackson’s upgrade into the billionaire bracket. Michael Jackson’s most famous sister is said to have collected $304 million in films (like Poetic Justice and Nutty Professor), $260 million in album sales, and $81 million in sponsorships. Oh and did I mention that she’s married to Wissam Al Mana — a billionaire retail entrepreneur?

While the web cheered for Jackson, Forbes was the only one who refused to applaud. The money ‘zine denied Jackson’s “billionaire” status because ” net worth is based on the value of the cash and assets you have at the moment, not on how much your work has brought in over a lifetime.” Fair enough, but Ms. Jackson’s still a billionaire in our eyes!

4. Michael Kors

Even if you don’t subscribe to a lifestyle of $500 bags and $700 shoes, there’s no doubt that you’ve heard of Michael Kors. The luxury brand name has been mentioned in The Devil Wears Prada and even in Nicki Minaj’s verse on Big Sean’s A** song . Since its inception in ’81, Michael Kors has evolved into a major household name in the design industry — and it’s paid off in Kors’ pockets. In early February, the Long Island native saw his stocksurge by almost 20 percent – and just like that — Kors became a billionaire.

5. The Lauder Sisters

Jane and Aerin Lauder were fortuitously born into a beauty empire when their grandmother, cosmetic legend Estée Lauder, transferred her lucrative legacy into her granddaughters’ hands. In April, Jane took the reigns as global brand president of Clinque, one of Estée Lauder’s 30 brands. She’s got a net worth of $1.3 billion. Aerin, creative director at the company, holds the the same value as her sister. Their fortunes surged after Estée Lauder’smarket value jumped by 23 percent last fall.

6. Jim Koch

Have you heard of Sam Adams? Of course you have. It’s one of America’s most popular craft beers under Jim Koch’s enterprise, Boston Beer Co. In recent months, the company’s sales have increased by 17 percent. America’s obsession with craft beer has translated into $1 billion in assets for Koch. Ain’t nothin’ like grabbing a cold one while sitting on a pretty bank account!

Koch, however, has been quite humble about his newly acquired riches: “I remind people

7. Jan Koum

Jan Koum is the co-creator of WhatsApp — a mobile messaging app that Facebook bought for a whopping $19 billion in late February. So Facebook turned another college dropout into a billionaire! Koum’s story is quite inspiring, too. A rags to riches tale, Koum and his mother were living on food stamps at one point . Clearly, Koum isn’t swiping his EBT card anymore. Since Koum owns 45 percent of WhatsApp, CNN Moneyestimates his net worth to be $7 billion.

8. James Tomilson Hill

James Tomilson Hill was the inspiration behind Gordon Gekko, a character in the film Wall Street who sticks by the iconic “Greed is Good” mantra. Hill owns 17.4 million shares of Blackstone, a New York City-based hedge fund company. As of June 10th, his stake is valued at $585 million. Hill also owns an art collection valued at $500 million.

9. Evan Williams

Last October, Evan Williams — co-founder of Twitter — made headlines as his 12 percent stake blossomed into $1.1 billion in value. His share in the company prospered as the social network’s value grew to $9.4 billion. Williams’ fellow co-founder, Jack Dorsey, owns a smaller share in the company: 4.9 percent, which is valued at $500 million — half of Williams’ stake value.

10. Jonathan Oringer

At 39 years old, Shuttershock’s CEO Jonathan Oringer will be enjoying his 40s as a billionaire. Back in 2003, Shuttershock only had 30,000 photos. Now? The tech firm offers more than 20 million photos to 750,000 customers all over the world. Oringer owns 55 percent of Shuttershock, or 18.5 million shares. As the company’s stock more than tripled since its IPO in 2012, Oringer’s stake is now worth $1 billion.
