Kim is worth $85 million which makes the $16,500 she spent on plastic surgery seem like mere pennies!

Known as a reality star, Kanye’s wife and mom to kids North and Saint West, if you don’t know who Kim Kardashian is then there’s a fairly good chance you just might live under a rock.

Kardashian is worth $85 million which makes the $16,500 she spent on plastic surgery seem like mere pennies!

Living life in the public eye on Keeping Up with the Kardashians not to mention her highly publicized marriage to Kanye, it’s no surprise that Kardashian has opted for cosmetic surgery to ensure her looks are the best money can buy.
In fact, we can’t help but wonder what exactly Kim hasn’t gotten tucked, tightened, enhanced or touched up?

Starting at the top, Kardashian spent an upwards of $500 on laser hair removal to remove the baby hair at the top of her forehead for a cleaner and sleeker look. She dropped around $5,000 for rhinoplasty where surgeons shortened and thinned her nose (no, it’s not a makeup trick like she claims!). Add in another $5,000 and Kardashian enjoys a fresh look thanks to Botox to arch her eyebrows, lip fillers, skin tightening treatments to reduce sagging and cheek injections to enhance her cheekbones. Saving the best for last, she’s even enhanced her claim to fame – her derriere – with butt implants that have taken her rear into a zip code all on their own.


Nicki Minaj spent a whooping $11,500 on three different cosmetic surgeris

“My anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns, hun!” First debuting in 2007 as a seemingly normal girl with huge talent hailing from Trinidad and Tobago, Nicki Minaj has come quite a long way in terms of her music and her looks.

Now appearing more like a strange hybrid of a Barbie doll across four different ethnicities, Nicki’s new (and odd) looks haven’t stopped her from being an international music sensation known for her lyrics about sex and drugs – imagine that!
Spending a whopping $11,500 on three different cosmetic surgeries, Nicki’s cheapest trip under the knife is probably the most recognizable at first glance after she bleached her once fairly dark skin.

Commonly known as skin lightening and running anywhere from $1,000 upwards, the procedure typically includes numerous chemical treatments, lasers and peeling to get the desired and much lighter effect.

As if her lighter look wasn’t enough, Nicki spent around $6,000 on a nose job or rhinoplasty where surgeons reconstructed the tip of her nose so that it would point down instead of up. Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? What’s even crazier is that Nicki spent upwards of $5,000 on her very first surgery – butt implants – where she had silicone implants inserted into each buttock to make her rear fuller and rounder. Where exactly does she find jeans that fit? Now, with a different nose and lighter skin, she literally makes millions by shaking her prosthetic butt around for the world to see. Talk about buns, hun!

Kendall Jenner is the undisputed model of the moment, walking the catwalk for everyone from Chanel to Victoria's Secret.

At ease: Kendall Jenner posed in her Moschino underpants, reclining on a white sofaSo we weren’t too surprised to see the raven-haired teenager wow in a recent scantily clad post which saw her sprawled across the sofa in a black top and monochrome Moschino briefs which feature a mesh texture and on-trend slogan detailing on the rim.

These lounge briefs are the ultimate panties for casual wear and they’re understatedly sexy. So comfort can still look good when it comes to underwear, ladies.

Rihanna has had a number of terrifying stalking incidents over the past few years.
In 2014, New York homeless man Kevin Mcglynn was arrested for delivering hand-written notes calling her a 'b****' to her SoHo apartment, as well as sending four letters to her LA home.
Mcglynn was later sent to a psychiatric hospital, with the judge comparing his behavior to that of the man who shot John Lennon and calling him 'a tragedy waiting to happen.

And in 2013, there were two separate attempted break-ins at her home in Los Angeles' Pacific Palisades.
In October of that year, a man was caught by Rihanna's security trying to climb the wall around her estate.
Just a week earlier, the home had been targeted by intruders while the singer was in Australia for her Diamonds world tour.
Rihanna released her new album Anti last week, after it appeared to have been mistakenly set live on the Tidal music streaming website.
She then gave away 1 million copies of her album in just 14 hours via Samsung and Tidal after tweeting a promo code.

Photos: ISIS propaganda video shows a French-speaking militant executing men accused of spying

A new video released on Saturday, January 30 by the Islamic State group in Iraq shows a French-speaking militant executing five men accused of being US spies. According to AFP, the militant also reportedly threatened attacks against Western countries.
The video, which was posted on several jihadi websites, shows young men admitting to have acted against ISIS militants before being shot dead. The video was produced by the ISIS media office in Iraq’s Nineveh province and was reportedly made after the Paris attack.

In the eight-minute video, the French-speaking militant, who is seen wearing a beige mask and carrying a handgun, brands the U.S.-led coalition fighting ISIS in Syria and Iraq “imbecile miscreants” and warns that the efforts by Western nations will fail to destroy the group.

The militant also vowed that ISIS will conduct more deadly attacks against the West. Among the Western nations, the militant made a reference to Spain, saying that the country will “pay dearly” for having crushed Muslim rule in ancient Andalusia — more than 500 years ago.
At the end of the video, the French-speaking militant and other ISIS fighters shoot dead five men wearing orange jumpsuits.

Thiery Henry says Van Gaal should be sacked from Man U and replaced with Jose Mourinho

The former Arsenal striker thinks that Manchester United coach Louis Van Gaal is failing to infuse his ideas to his players and that he is struggling so hard to keep up with his job. He says the coach doesn't know what he is doing anymore so the best thing for Man U to do is let him go and hire Mourinho.

In his Sunday column of The Sun UK, he wrote:
"I know a lot of United fans and all they talk about is how poorly their team are playing, "It’s not about results any more. Even when they win, the issue is still how awful the football is. They don’t enjoy watching their team any more. They are bored",
"No one can question Van Gaal’s pedigree as a coach. But he has failed to get his message across at United and the players don’t know what is expected of them. He doesn’t appear to know his best team or even his best formation." 
"The club are crying out for success and Mourinho guarantees that, in spite of everything that happened at Chelsea this season," Henry continued. "He is still an amazing coach and United have got to do something because it is simply not working for Van Gaal" he said.

United currently sits in fifth position in the Premier League, following a woeful  run of results through December.

Leonardo DiCaprio wins his first SAG award (photos)

    After five Individual nominations, the actor finally got his hands on a SAG award. He picked up the gong for best male actor for his role in The Revenant. He had been up against Eddie Redmayne (The Danish Girl), Michael Fassbender (Steve Jobs), Bryan Cranston (Trumbo), and Johnny Depp (Black Mass). During his acceptance speech, Leo said:

'I'm truly humbled by this because it comes from all of you, my fellow actors. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. When I was 15 years old, I was lucky enough to get a film called This Boy's Life and for about a year after that I watched as many films as I possibly could from Jimmy Cagney all the way to Robert De Niro. It gave me such a tremendous respect for this craft, this craft of acting. I was in awe of their performances, and I was incredibly inspired. So for any young actors out there, I encourage you to watch the history of cinema because as the history of cinema unfolds, you realize that we all stand on the shoulders of giants.'
'To my parents, thank you for listening to an overly ambitious, slightly annoying 13-year-old kid who wanted to go on auditions every day after school,' he said. 'I would Noting be standing here without you.'
First to congratulate him on his win was Titanic co-star, Kate Winslet who smouldered him in a big bear hug. The pair have maintained a close bond since they starred in the 1997 hit movie.

He'll hope his winning streak carries him all the way to an Oscar, that's one he'll love to win and deserves to win.

'It takes a man who has the fear of God to relinquish power so easily' - former President Jonathan

      On the 28th of March, 2015, after a tension filled presidential election, Muhammadu Buhari emerged as the new president of Nigeria and Goodluck Jonathan conceded victory to his successor. In a dinner organised in his honour in Geneva, Switzerland last week by Cercle Diplomatique, Jonathan poured out his heart concerning a lot of issues ranging from his foray into politics, Nigeria's well being and why he conceded to President Buhari immediately after the election. He talked about why he made that  historic telephone to congratulate Buhari even when the results were still being tallied.

His full statement during the dinner has just been released and its very revealing! Read it after the cut...

He began: “As you can see, I have not come here with a prepared speech, since what I consider appropriate for this occasion is to just thank you all, members and everyone else in attendance, in a few words, for the dinner and the award, in order not to make the evening look boring. But having said that, I am still tempted to note that if I were to present a written speech, the title, would probably have been “Power Tussle in Africa: A Stumbling Block to Economic Growth.” When Mr. Robert Blum, your President, made his very interesting opening remarks, he introduced me as the former President of Nigeria. He was absolutely correct.
"However, I believe that not many of you here know that the story of my foray into politics has a peculiar ring to it. I entered politics in 1998 and, barely one year after, I got elected as the Deputy Governor of Bayelsa, my state. I later became Governor, Vice President and eventually got elected as the President of my country. I remain the only leader in my country to have travelled that route.
"As the President, I served out my first term but, as Mr. Blum had pointed out earlier, I lost the bid to be re-elected. I am encouraged by the fact that many of you here appreciated my decision not to reject or contest my loss at the polls, not even in the courts as many people had expected.''
"Again, I have to agree with Blum that it was not an easy decision to take. This is because the allure of power and the worries about what would become of you after leaving office constitute an irresistible force. It has an attraction so controlling and powerful that it takes a man who has the fear of God and who loves his people and nation to relinquish power so easily in Africa.
"I was actually in that valley on March 28, 2015. I never knew that the human brain had the capacity for such enhanced rapid thinking. One hundred and one things were going through my mind every second. My country was at the verge of collapse. The tension in the land was abysmally high and palpable, in the months leading to the election. The country became more polarised more than ever before, such that the gap between the North and the South and between Christians and Muslims became quite pronounced.
"In fact, it became so disturbing that some interest groups in the United States began to predict indeed, many Nigerians did buy into this doomsday prophesy as they began to brace themselves for the worst. As the President, I reminded myself that the Government I led had invested so much effort into building our country. I worked hard with my top officials to encourage Nigerians and non-Nigerians to invest in our country to be able to provide jobs and improve the lives of our people.
"We worked hard to grow our economy and to improve and bring Nigeria up as the biggest economy in Africa, with a GDP of about half a trillion dollars”. “Should I then, for the love of power, watch Nigeria slide into a theatre of war, with my fellow country men and women dying, and many more pouring into other nations in Africa and beyond, as refugees? Should I hang on to power and tussle with my challengers, while the investments of hard working citizens of the world go down the drain? I then said to myself, NO!''
I promised my God that I will not let that fate befall Nigeria under my watch, hence the historic telephone call I put through to congratulate my challenger even when the results were still being tallied. I believe that for a country to be great, both the leaders and the led must be prepared to make sacrifices. This is why, everywhere I go, I always advise that the new generation of African leaders must think differently. We can no longer afford to wilfully sacrifice the blood of our citizens on the altar of dangerous partisan politics. It is not worth it.
This reminds me of one of my campaign statements to the effect that my ambition was not worth the shedding of the blood of any Nigerian. Some people took it then as mere political slogan but I knew that I meant it when I said it. ''We must all fight for the enthronement of political stability in Africa, for in it lies the panacea for sustainable growth and development. For Africa to record the kind of advancement that will be competitive and beneficial to our citizens, we must have stable states supported by strong institutions. That appears to be the irreducible minimum that is common to all developed societies. Africa’s political odyssey can distinctly be categorised into three eras, and probably another that would later signpost its classification as a developed continent”.
"Some may doubt this, but it is no fluke that Africa is growing and rising. However I will admit before you here that we still have challenges. That is why people like us did all we could to ensure that Nigeria, the biggest black nation on earth, would not drift into anarchy because such a situation would have spelt doom for the rest of the continent. It would have affected not just Nigeria alone, but the GDP and economy of the entire West Africa. And if the economy of West Africa crashes, it would definitely affect the performance of the economy of the whole of Africa.
As you know, the GDP of Africa is less than three trillion dollars, with only six African countries able to boast of nominal GDP above $100 billion. Even for those in this ‘elite’ category, you can’t really say that they are rich countries. Apart from maybe South Africa that has an industrially competitive economy, the rest are still mainly commodity exporting countries. Even the case of that of South Africa is not very encouraging, because we have a situation which we could refer to as a first world economic performance, yet the ordinary people live the life of the people in the so called third world.''
In the case of Nigeria which is even the biggest economy on the continent, the reality is that we have an unenviable per capita GDP of $3,203, which is the World Bank average for a period covering 2011-2015.'' “Even then, I still believe that Africa has a bright future; a promising prognosis that is supported by the fact that the continent remains a very fertile and attractive territory that yields irresistible returns on investments. I believe that in the next few years many more big investors will be jostling to come to Africa, if only we will do the right thing. The process of getting it right has already started with a democratic and increasingly democratising Africa. But we have to deepen and strengthen our democratic credentials through regular, free and fair elections. This will in turn bring about the stability necessary to improve the infrastructure that promotes rapid economic growth. These are the guarantees that would lead us into the next period which I would like to call the era of a developed Africa. I have no doubt in my mind that we will get there some day.
"I will be applying myself diligently to two key areas. First, is to work for good governance by promoting credible and transparent elections. This will bring about the strengthening of our institutions and the enthronement of stability. I also believe that there is the urgent need to create jobs for our teeming young population. This is another area that will be receiving my attention.
I recall that the Vice President of your association made reference in his speech to my achievements in that regard through what we called Youth Enterprises with Innovation (YouWin) and the Nagropreneur programme which encouraged young people to go into agriculture. I believe more programmes like that should be established to promote youth entrepreneurship. That way, we reduce their reliance on paid employment. We will not only teach them to become entrepreneurs, they will also acquire the capacity to employ other people. We will be paying special attention to this segment of our society, especially young people and women.
We will develop programmes that will inculcate in them business skills to be able to set up micro, small and medium enterprises. We shall assist them to access take-off grants when they acquire the relevant skills and capacities. There are many areas that they can go into; food processing, light manufacturing and the services sector are just some of them. I can tell you from experience that this works. As we speak, Our Nagropreneur programme, to promote youth involvement in agriculture value chain, is being scaled up by the African Development Bank presently. It is already being replicated in 19 African countries because of the success of the programme in Nigeria.
I invite all of you here today, cabinet ministers, diplomats and private sector people to remain committed to the cause of improving lives, especially those lives in Africa, and making our world a better place. For those of you that will be sharing in this vision for Africa, I assure you that you will not be disappointed. I am very optimistic that if we encourage young men and women in this continent to develop businesses of their own, the story of Africa will change within 10 years”.

One year after Nigerian student Ozi Akerele went missing, his mum, UK police appeal for information

Today, January 31 marks a year to the day since Nigerian student, Ozievo Akerele disappeared without a trace leaving his widowed mother heartbroken. The 24-year-old Masters student of Coventry University was last seen after leaving a nightclub in the early hours of the morning of Jan. 31, 2015. 

Since then officers have released CCTV of Ozi’s last movements, issued media appeals for sightings and searched miles of the canal network and outlying area where Ozi was last seen.

Officers have worked closely with Coventry University who continue to distribute posters asking for information and have previously offered a reward of up to £20,000 for information which would help find the Nigerian student who came to Coventry to take a Masters Degree in Management of Information Technology after completing studies in Nigeria.

Ozi went out with friends to the Iglu club on Spon Street, but left alone around 3.30am. CCTV shows him hours later on the Foleshill Road between Park Street and the A444 shortly after making a call to a friend asking to be picked up near to the university. Sadly when the friend arrived Ozi couldn’t be found.

The latest search involved two ‘drowned victim’ search dogs from the National Search and Rescue Dog Association who travelled from Greater Manchester.
Handler Dave March and his Collie Sasha along with British Transport Police officer Mike Dermody and his MalinoisQuincy tracked a five mile stretch of the canal earlier this month. The dogs along with their handlers and two inflatable boats supplied by West Mercia Police searched from Coventry Basin to Hawkesbury Junction near to the Greyhound pub.

Previously Sonar equipment from the Home Office has been used in the search for Ozi, all to no avail. Inspector Alastair Orencas who is leading the search for Ozi. He said:
"In spite of extensive searches, investigation work and media appeals, we are no closer to finding Ozi. On the anniversary of his disappearance I am again appealing to anyone who may have any information to come forward. I am in regular contact with Ozi’s mother, Irene Akerele, and my dearest wish is to have news for her to end the limbo that she finds herself in."

Ozi left three brothers and his widowed mother in Abuja, Nigeria to travel to the UK.
After his disappearance Irene Akerele came to England to assist with the search. She described her son as being "on the quiet side, he doesn’t talk much, but he is a happy boy, he’s always excited. He likes friends around him, he’s very generous."
She spoke of his decision to continue his studies here:
"Ozievo was happy to come to Coventry University, he wanted it, he sought the admission himself. At times now, I regret sending him out to do his Masters Degree."

Chris Brown's baby mama claims he gave their child asthma with his weed

Chris Brown's baby mama Nia Guzman  is taking him to court on the claims that he is making their child sick. She told the judge that one year old Royalty has developed asthma, and it's all because Chris has exposed her to an extreme amount of secondhand smoke, adding that he is a weed and tobacco enthusiast, according to a report by TMZ...

Nia says that every time Royalty comes back from a visit with Chris, she usually reeks of smoke. Nia said she's worried Chris is abusing drugs and has relapsed, mostly with sizzurp.

Nia wants Chris' visitation to be restricted, asking the judge to force him to hire a full-time nanny or pull back on his right to be around the child.

She also wants the judge to force Chris to take random drug tests, prohibit him from using drugs or consuming alcohol around Royalty, and stop him from smoking around their daughter.

In addition she wants her child support to be increased from $2500 to $16000.

Father Mbaka says he is going to suffer following his transfer to another Parish

. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, yesterday Jan. 30th bowed out of Christ the King Parish, GRA, Enugu, which he'd presided over as parish priest for 20 years. On his way to his new presiding parish, Our lady Parish, Emene, in Enugu, over 30 lorries accom­panied by thousands of his faithful followers escorted him in a motorcade to a new church where he will be an assistant parish priest.

The transfer of reverend fathers is not an issue in the catholic church as it is a routine exercise that is done every once in a while but Fr. Mbaka’s transfer became an issue because the people saw it as a measure for his recent prophecies especially that of Decem­ber 31st 2014, when he predicted that former President Goodluck Jonathan would be defeated in the 2015 elections. This has however been dismissed by the church.

His transfer as a parish priest to a resident priest, in which  he will serve under another priest, has also caused a stir among people because he has been with the catholic church for years so it is only normal to make him the parish priest and not an assistant. 

While handing over formally to his successor yesterday, Mbaka  said:
 “I know we are going to suffer; between now and few months to come, I am going to suffer; I am going to suffer because I have no place to lay my head; I am  going to suffer because I have no place to keep the Ministry’s assets; I know I am going to suffer; fortunate going to suffer because I have no ly it’s going to happen in the month of Lent; so I am going to use my exit here to observe the Lent. But Jesus said it to His apostles in John 16:20, ‘You will be sorrowful and the world will be rejoicing but very soon I will turn your sorrows to joy.’ So I am waiting for that moment because for now I know we are going to suffer. The Adoration Ministry is passing through suffering right now; even though I have accepted it as the will of God; it is the will of God through suffering; it is a mega suffering. But however, the grace of God will carry us all; even though some of you may pray that God should remove this thorn from us, the scripture says ‘His grace is sufficient for us; for its even in your weakness that the power of God is demonstrated. So we are moving but don’t forget the scriptures, ‘my brothers they make me keeper of vineyards, my own vineyard I keepeth not. All these while we have been keeping vine­yards, building for Christ The King Parish…Bishop Gbuji asked them, how much …but because I don’t want to disclose my charity, they can’t keep that account. How many trailer loads of cement came here? All the monies I made from my cassette and other private crusades all of them were used to build this church. We cannot quantify it but let God be glorified.” ­ 
“It is the will of God, and when the will of God either permissive or however, happens, nobody should question it. All you have today is Amen; so to the will of God Fr. Mbaka has said Amen".
He said he's accepting the decision of the church leadership with absolute obedience, adding  that nobody should see him as an obstinate priest. He also assured them that the parish would not collapse due to his exit, and urged the mem­bers to treat his successor, Rev. Fr. Theodore Ozoamalu, well, and to assist him in any way he needs help and not allow him to cry.
“Don’t starve him; don’t allow him to suffer; in my own time I didn’t need your help because God blessed me in my own unique way and I am happy. God will keep the parish because we have fought the good fight; I am not regretting anything and the highest gift God has given here is his Holy Spirit who assisted me up till now" he said.

Photos: You should see some of the tactics used by people in attempt to smuggle illegal items into Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia custom officials posted some of the various illegal items people have attempted to smuggle into the country. One of the most popular items uncovered by officials is alcohol which is completely banned in Saudi Arabia. More photos after the cut...

As seen in the photos, some people have hid bottles of whiskey in the crevices of their cars in the hope that the normal-looking exterior is enough to mask what lies beneath. In the first six days of January alone, almost 535,000 Captagon pills were found during a number of different searches by Saudi customs officers: 414,000 pills were found in truck tires; 100,000 were concealed in wooden pallets; and another 10,000 were found in the lining of a man’s underwear. 

Smugglers have even used camels to try and get their contraband into the country, with Saudi officials discovering a camel with 115,000 narcotic pills on its back.

In an attempt to sneak 48,000 cans of Heineken into the country, a smuggler wrapped each can in the Pepsi logo. More photos...
