  2. THERE’S ONE ABSOLUTE TRUTH WE CAN ALL AGREE ON ABOUT THIS COUNTRY: NIGERIA NEEDS HEROES. A LOT OF THEM. The country has been failed time and again by people in real positions of power to do something about its decay that it’s easy to completely lose all hope in the country. However, there are people who are not giving up just yet; people who still battle to protect the little flicker of hope in the pervading darkness that the country struggles in. Adepeju Olukokun is only another average Nigerian who decided that he had had enough of the government’s system of willful neglect and disappointment and was intent on doing something about it. Olukokun had experienced hardship first hand, growing up in a polygamous family where sustenance was hard, hawking on the street for the better part of 15 years. The things he was exposed to growing up inspired him to do his part to make sure he could prevent other people having to suffer through the same. This led to what is known today as Kokun Foundation. Well, NGO Owner, Kokun, took to his insta-story to share his depression story and how he is currently feeling suicidal even though it’s been a while he was sad. According to Kokun, the depression challenge he is currently facing is so much for him. Here is post the philanthropist shared below;

  4. SINGER OMAWUMI ISN’T VERY HAPPY WITH THE NIGERIA POLICE FORCE, A SENTIMENT WHICH SHE SHARED ON HER TWITTER. It looks like she was a victim of an unruly stop-and-search routine, writing about being “disrespected” by uniformed officers who abused their office. She would have ended up seriously hurt if she hadn’t put her foot down and known her rights, she shared. I’m a proud Nigerian that louds the effort of the NPF(Nigeria police force) but today I was a victim of uniformed officers that abused their office. If you want to stop and search, do it respectfully. I was disrespected today and if I didn’t put my foot down or I didn’t know my rights, I would have ended up seriously hurt. We can do better by ourselves in any position we find ourselves. You owe it to your citizens to be/do better. Omawumi becomes yet another celebrity to fall victim to police misbehavior, after Lola OJ who was “physically assaulted,” DJ Obi whose tire was allegedly shot at, and Praiz who was arrested.

  8. Do you also want to know how to make perfume in Nigeria? Probably, everyone wants to know this, because only the magic, sensual and enticing world of aromas can attract a person. Sweet notes of vanilla, a passionate smell of roses, patchy patchouli – all have their preferences. Keep reading our guide and create your personal perfume. Most likely, a lot of people faced with the usual situation, when visiting a perfume shop, we have difficulties in choosing the fragrance, namely those notes that are obliged to play for the benefit of a hard-to-match image. So many ladies and gentlemen start to think about the creation of their own perfume based on the personal preferences. If created successfully such perfume can even become your business card and will be unique. PERFUME CREATION To make a perfume with your own hands, you should understand that the basis of any real perfume is essential oils, which in various combinations can create a unique fragrance. First of all, you need to choose the aromas of natural essential oils that you like most of all. To do this, you can take ordinary paper, which should be cut into thin strips. On each piece of paper, sign what kind of oil you are applying. Then apply one drop to the strip and arrange a mini-exam. With your eyes closed, inhale the fragrance of the oil, and then read the name. You should only smell one by one, without opening your eyes. After that, prepare the necessary inventory: cut clean strips of paper; one glass container for mixing; a set of essential oils; glass pipette; pure ethyl as the basis for liquid; jojoba oil without a smell as a base for oil perfume; beeswax as a basis for dry perfume; glass bottles for ready-made perfumes. Any perfume consists of three phases. Each phase is made up of fragrances, depending on the persistence of essential oils: The first phase is the initial note. It contains fragrances that can be smelt in the first 15-20 minutes after application to the body. As a rule, these are citrus, mimosa, basil, mint, anise, rosewood, lavender, and many others. The second phase is the main note. The heart of any perfume is revealed after half an hour. Use to create the main note of fl0ral fragrance, essential oils, musk, fennel, pine, cinnamon, tobacco, thyme, nutmeg, cloves, and others. The third phase is the base note. The “aftertaste” of the perfume. Leave a smooth, slightly noticeable fragrance, which is also called a train. This includes essential oils of myrrh, incense, most woody fragrances, for example, incense, patchouli, vetiver, and wood moss. Some fragrances can also be used to create other phases, the main thing is to keep a single composition, the general nature of the product. HOW TO MAKE PERFUME AT HOME IN NIGERIA Do you wonder how to make homemade perfumes by creating exactly your scent? It`s simple enough. First of all, it`s always necessary to create a composition of “heart of perfumes.” Put on the signed paper strips a drop of essential oils belonging to this group. After that, bring various combinations of these fragrances to your nose, choose precisely the combination that you like. After that, add one fragrance of the main note. Don`t rush to combine several scents at once, so you cannot catch the necessary combination, and you can get confused as to which combination you might like. Lastly, add the oils of the initial note in the same way. After you have prepared the basic composition, apply it on a cotton shawl and leave it for 1-2 hours. If after this time the fragrance will please you, then you have made the right choice. Don`t try immediately for complex compounds, each note should contain two or three types of oil. STEPS TO FOLLOW TO MAKE YOUR IDEAL HOMEMADE PERFUME The proportion of used oils should be – 1/2/3 (drops), depending on what smell should play in the first, second or third phase. But the rule isn`t strict, each determines for himself the intensity of an ingredient, depending on their preferences. After that, in a glass container with a pipette, mix the oils you have chosen in the proposed proportion. Now you can start, directly, to make perfume. Decide what kind you would like to make. If the perfume is on an alcohol base, then the concentration of the oil composition can be 20-30%. If you want to make the oil perfume, the essential oils have to be 10%, and a dry one can be prepared from beeswax in the proportion of 50/50. Pour the perfume into a sterile glass bottle. Remember that alcohol perfumes after mixing should infuse for at least three weeks in a dark dry place. Mix the compounds for your future perfume slowly, but don`t shake. For oil perfumes, the infusing period is much shorter – no more than a week, and dry one can be used immediately after preparing. Thus, you can make for yourself the necessary fragrances for each occasion. Besides, perfumes composed individually for a particular person and can become a wonderful gift to him or her. We offer for the first time to use ready-made recipes of already proven perfumes.

  20. DAVIDO HAS BEEN SWIMMING IN SEVERAL TIDES OF EMOTIONS SINCE THE OSUN GOVERNORSHIP ELECTION BEGAN. After the outcome was declared inconclusive yesterday, the musician decided to unwind with his bae Chioma. Both of them who have been writing controversial tweets back to back have been seen relaxing and laughing off the stress of the past day. To show his fan how much he is enjoying his much-needed break, Davido shared a video of himself and Chioma in the bedroom of what looked like a luxurious place. They were both laughing and throwing off love darts with their cosy postures. While the Nwa Baby crooner was lying down without any cloth covering his chest, Chioma was sitting up on the bed and tending to herself while wearing what seemed to be a white nightwear. Despite the relaxed poses, it was evident that the Osun state election which has been postponed to a later date was still bearing on Davido’s mind. This was revealed in the short dialogue he had in the video he shared. Davido said this statement: “Tell them we are coming for you.” Then he asked his girlfriend Chioma to do the same. Something about these words insinuates that Davido is talking about the Osun re-run election and how he intended to pull all effort with regards to it. Fans of the musician have given their opinion of this video. As expected, they were full of praise for the couple whose love seemed to overflow boundaries. Some people, however, were displeased that Davido had no qualms showing off his beautiful partner in such state. This expected criticism must have been what influenced Davido to address his Assurance bae in a caption that expressed his love for her and also warned her not to follow in his ‘rebellious’ stride: “@thechefchi no follow me talk o dem go hold u ehn!”
  21. JURGEN KLOPP INSISTS LIVERPOOL’S SEVEN-MATCH WINNING RUN DOES NOT MAKE HIM “A GENIUS”, WITH THE GERMAN HAVING MERELY UNLOCKED THE CLUB’S POTENTIAL. It has taken the best part of three years for the Reds to reach this point, with a proven manager turned to in October 2015. Klopp was brought to Anfield to build on foundations put down by Brendan Rodgers which had started to crumble. He has delivered on that remit, with a faultless start to 2018-19 helping to raise expectations even further, but major silverware remains the ultimate goal. Klopp is hoping to land a first trophy since 2012 this term, with all of those connected with Liverpool urged to have “the time of our lives” as tangible success is chased down. “We grow step by step. The club, the team, everything. Hopefully, it stays like this,” Klopp told reporters in the wake of a 3-0 victory over Southampton. “I am not a genius. I knew about the potential of the club and the stadium because everyone knows about it. “Of course it is different [now] but the team is different and we win step by step. If I would have said three years ago we would have a better atmosphere in the stadium and win more home games then that is nothing. People would expect that. “We want to win things but we don’t know when that will happen. We don’t have a clue, so we should have the best time of our lives until it happens. “Performance-wise, result-wise, atmosphere-wise, have the best time until it happens. “When it happens we have to start again. If it doesn’t happen we have to try again. That is how life is and football is.”

The Lowa Adimula of Ife, High Chief Adekola Adeleye, who said he is the Ooni’s second in command “to the left”, explained that the Ooni cannot be seen to be taking sides with any of the candidates.

If he must vote, it will be for all the candidates because he’s the father of all, but that’s not possible, so kingmakers advised him not to vote. “He cannot take sides. All the candidates are Ooni’s subjects and so it’s better for a father to be neutral when his children are in a contest,” Adeleye told our reporter.
