Legalise prostitution and tax it-says Ghanaian Member of Parliament


Member of Parliament for Obuasi Akrofuom, Kwabena Appiah Pinkrah says prostitution is a major source of employment and as long as people earn some form of income from practising it, the vice should be regulated so that government can generate revenue from it.

“Prostitution is a main stream job and those who engage in it are earning money so they should be taxed by the state and the practice should be regularized so that the professionals among the prostitutes will be registered,” he said on Adom FM’s Burning Issues programme on Monday October 28.

Mr Appiah Pinkrah was speaking in relation to a swoop carried out by Takoradi police during which they arrested 23 prostitutes in an area close to the popular night hangout Vienna City.

Fire Guts Lekan Balogun’s Ibadan House

The Ibadan residence of a prominent politician, Lekan Balogun,  in the  Alarere area of the city was destroyed by fire late Tuesday.

Although no life was lost in the incident, property worth millions of naira was destroyed by the fire.

Eyewitnesses said the fire started on Tuesday evening and would have completely burnt the house but for neighbours’ quick response.

Speaking on the incident on Wednesday, Balogun said he was not at home when the fire started.

He said, “I was not there when the fire started. I got a call from my guard who said the fire was much. I got in touch with the police station in the area. The DPO called the fire brigade. I also got in touch with the fire brigade later.

“I made about 40 phone calls within a short time while the fire raged. Within 10 minutes, everybody in Alarere trooped out with buckets of water. Before the fire brigade came, the people had put off the fire.”

Balogun said he lost everything to the fire but that he was thankful that no life was lost.

“Everything was completely destroyed. Every item of furniture in the living room and other things are badly damaged. The deck was also affected because the irons are now exposed. I can’t really estimate the property I lost to the incident. I thank God that the incident didn’t happen in the night. It would have been very disastrous if not for the neighbours that came to help me. I enjoyed the love of my neighbours. They were simply wonderful. May God be with all of them too,” he said.

Three days after some youths staged protest at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu in solidarity with the embattled minister of aviation, Stella Oduah, fresh indications have emerged that the protest was allegedly sponsored by the ministry.

Contrary to the claims that the protesters were Igbo Youths, a source told DailyPost that they were students of the Institute of Management and Technology, IMT, Enugu.

According to the source, trouble started when the organizers refused to pay the students the agreed amount.

One of the protesters who spoke under anonymity told our correspondent that they were initially promised N10, 000 each, adding that “after the protest, they took us to the Enugu Press Centre, where we were given only N4,000.

“This was quite against the earlier agreement we reached. They shortchanged us so much and we are not happy about that”.

Skelewu a copied concept by Moe Musa/ Davido

#Early this morning, there was an arguement  with some friends about Davido's Skelewu video shot, both the official and the unoffishial.I was of the opinion that the official skelewu is the best for me because of the concept Moe Musa employed,Moe Musa was employed by Davido to reshoot the video because He (Davido )claimed that the unofficial one that was shot by Sesan was a leaked copy and he never approved it.Although the Official video was a good concept because it was movie like, one thing I was made to realise is that it was suppose to be a dancevideo but we only had 4 people actually doing the Skelewu dance while the others were just frestyling behind them, unlike the so called unofficial which has a lot of dance in the video
Another thing was that the video shoot from Moe musa was a stolen concept from LMFAO‘s 2011′s ‘Party Rock Anthem‘s video,I mean copied from scene to scene.

Here is how it goes
 SkyBlu and RedFoo woke up from a coma in the hospital and when they got to the street they discovered that everywhere was dirty,scattered and deserted they later saw someone who was explaining what hapened to them(probably about a song that has gone viral in the town, then a bunch of infected dancers closed up on them and they  start dancing)
This is the same stolen concept by Davido/Moe Musa

My advice to Dvido is that you should spend your money wisely(rumour has it that you want to shoot another video with 7 Million Naira with Clearance Peters)
Moe Musa come up with a beter and more creative ideas.Watch the two videos below ,compare and comment      LMFAO

BBM Adds Over 20 Million Active Users in The First Week

Just over a week ago BBM launched on iOS and Android to an amazing reception. It was an instant hit, quickly shooting to the top of the App Store and ultimately hitting number one in Google Play for Top New Free as well. BBM has seen well over 10 million downloads at this point and is still going strong.
BlackBerry has announced today that BBM has ended its first week with over 80 million active users, including 20 million new users from Android and iOS. 20 million new active users - that’s 20 million users who are actively using BBM, not just downloads. We’re not sure of the total installs, but given that the number of new active users is 20 million, we can only imagine that the total number of actual downloads is much higher. BlackBerry is smart to measure by active users as opposed to just download numbers so we can get a real gauge for the traction of BBM on other platforms. It doesn’t look like things are slowing down at all.
From Andrew Bocking, EVP of BBM:

How Iyanya raked in Millions

Pop singer Iyanya Mbuk has amassed over N130 million in endorsements deals in 2013 alone. Since his highly successful 2012 monster hit single ‘Kukere’, it has been one hit after another, one award after another and one endorsement contract after another for the once impoverished singer.
In the last one year and half, Iyanya has proven that he can be a hit maker disappointing the initial doubts that critics had raised about him when his 2009 debut album ‘My Story’ flopped. Certainly,
Iyanya took the lesson of that album and transformed himself into one of the most sought after Nigerian artistes today placing him on the pedestal where corporate organisations would jostle to do business with him.
Three weeks ago, the singer closed a deal reportedly worth N35 million with mobile phone manufacturing company, SOLO Mobile. According to his publicist, Wildflower PR, the deal was iced with a brand new 2014 Prado SUV.
Earlier in May, the 27 year old singer was lucky enough to have been included in MTN’s swoop of some of the major players in the music industry, becoming one of the company’s highest paid brand ambassadors in a N40 million deal.

Popular American television comedy drama-mystery series, Desperate Housewives is to get an African remake.

According to Nigerian network EbonyLife, they have joined forces with Disney to give the award winning show an African adaptation.

The show is reportedly still in the development stages and is scheduled for a 2014 debut on the channel which reaches 44 countries on the African continent.

According to, the show will feature a pan-African cast and will be set in Lagos, Nigeria, where it will also be shot.

We like all the good things in life. There's good and there's evil globally," Mo Abudu, CEO and Executive Chairman of EbonyLife TV was quoted saying.

The original US show, which starred big names such as Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross and Eva Longoria aired  for 8 seasons between 2004 and 2012 and managed to win numerous industry awards.

Embattled Stella Oduah Shuns House Committee Hearing As Cars Presented To The Committee Are Different From The Ones Bought By The NCAA


Maduka Cosmos, whose Coscharis Motors sold the controversial armoured cars to a department of the Ministry Civil Aviation, has told the House of Representatives Committee on Aviation the matter that his company followed due process.
Mrs. Stella Oduah, the Minister who is implicated in the alleged fraud, is absent at the hearing, from which Premium Times is carrying live updates.
“Absence of the Minister is a slap on the face of the House,” said an angry Jerry Manwe, a member of the committee from Taraba State.  Last week, the committee gave Mrs. Oduah up till yesterday to appear before it, recognizing that she was away in Israel on official duty.
“To the best of my knowledge, we followed all due process,” Coscharis said.  “We were interviewed by SSS. We were interviewed by the National Security Adviser. Every due process by law was followed. We do business with morality.”
The Deputy Comptroller General of Customs, Manasa Daniel Jatau, has told the committee that Coscharis imported the cars without paying import duties because there was a waiver from the Ministry of Finance.  He added that Coscharis obtained the waiver claiming the armoured cars were part of 300 vehicles being imported for the Sports Festival in Lagos last year.  The impression given, therefore, was that the beneficiary of the waiver would be the government of Lagos State.
The cars inspected by the House committee on Tuesday, are different from the ones stated in the documents between NCAA and Coscharis, the reps said.
Lawmakers say they saw cars with different chassis number from those on the communication between NCAA and Coscharis.
But Coscharis said since it did not inspect the cars with the House members, it cannot say whether

Leucistic Texas Rat White Snake (Picture)

Have u seen a white beautiful snake before? check out this rare breed of snake looking so harmless and nice i think its the world most beautiful white snake ever more picture below:

This Leucistic Texas Rat Snake is a lovely lady in white. She gets her coloring and the "leucistic" element of her name from a condition that results in a lack of all pigmentation, rather than just melanin which appears in albinism. This is why her eyes are of normal color. Texas Rat Snakes are (obviously) found in Texas as well as in Arizona and Louisiana. They are non venomous so a bite will give you little more than a sore leg.

Snake Venom, World’s Strongest Beer Contains 67.5% Of Alcohol

The world's strongest beer, dubbed Snake Venom, contains a massive 67.5 per cent alcohol by volume, costs $85 to buy and should be consumed in tiny doses, its Scottish makers say.

Snake Venom is the product of Scottish brewery Brewmeister, which has upped the ante from its previous record-holding concoction, the 65 per cent ABV Armageddon (vodka, by comparison, is typically 80 proof, or 40 per cent alcohol).

The brewery decided to manufacture an even stronger beer after some customers complained its first attempt was too weak, Scotland's Daily Record
reported. Brewers Lewis Shand and John McKenzie said they didn't want Armageddon, now the world's second- strongest beer, to have an overwhelming taste, so they made it oily. This time around, they didn't try to disguise the sharp taste of the alcohol in Snake Venom.

Worm-infested Weaves Now In The Market

Irene Myangoh, a personal assistant working at a law firm in Nairobi went to an upmarket hair salon along Kenyatta Avenue, and spent more than N5,500 on a human hair weave.
Two weeks later she started suffering from severe headache that would not go away. She would wake up with severe headache at night. She went to a private doctor who gave her drugs for the relief of mild to moderate pain of inflammatory origin with or without fever; they would only work for a few hours and then the headache would be back worse than even before. Desperate, she went to see a specialist who did blood tests and even a brain scan. All the tests were negative but the headache persisted, making her unable to concentrate at work and sleeping very poorly. She went back to her doctor who decided to examine her scalp and under the beautiful weave he found worms!

The worms were burrowing into her skull and after sending the samples to the lab they found that the hair had eggs from which the worms had Irene had to shave after this ordeal and took antibiotics for two weeks. Elsewhere, 16-year-old girl from Buruburu, a Nairobi surburb, also suffered the same fate but unfortunately for her she died. Cobweb eggs were found in her hair after she died.

There was a profound cobweb design in her weaved hair. She dropped dead after constant headaches.
The root cause? The weave had unnoticed spider eggs. The warmth produced after weaving provided a very conducive environment for the eggs to hatch. A spider grew in her scalp and bit her. The poison found its way to her blood. She could not survive the attack.

Angry Ronaldo blasts FIFA president for making Jokes about him

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has responded angrily to a video of FIFA president Sepp Blatter imitating him and describing him as a “commander on the field.” Speaking at an event at Oxford University last week, Blatter said he preferred four-time World Player of the Year Lionel Messi to Ronaldo, who he claimed spends more money on his hairstyle than the Argentine.
