Mama Alexis has joined the league of wealthy entrepreneurs to make more money on top of their stash. Serena has Been teasing fans  for days about her intending new development.  She posted the announcement on her instagram handle.

#serenawilliams – They say life is about timing. I learned this lesson at age 18, when I chose to play a light tennis schedule because I wanted to go to fashion school. Some criticized my decision, but I knew I had two loves–tennis and fashion–and had to find a way to make them coexist. After 15 years of false starts, and people in fashion telling me “no,” it only only drove me to work harder. As a result, I discovered what it meant to invest in myself, and I allowed that belief in myself to drive me to reach my dream.
Today, I am proud to launch @serena , my own online shop. Never stop believing in yourself, you’re worth it. #BeSeenBeHeard

Linda Ikeji shares kind words she got from a mentor as the day for her Online TV draws near.

officiallindaikeji-1525265726216

The blogger discloses the excitement she felt as she receive words of encouragement from a person she looked up to. Especially since she is counting down to 22nd May when she will be launching her online TV. She is literally patting herror self in the back for making it this far, considering the challenges surrounding a typical Nigeria youths, with little or no support or conducive environment for growth. But Linda did it. She posted the message on her instagram along with her office picture.

 from @officiallindaikeji – “Over the years I have watched you battle against the odds to build a formidable platform, following and influence. Through it, you’ve carried yourself with grace, beauty, courage and the necessary distance. You did not forget to be mischievous and cheeky along the way

What you have done is exceptional anywhere and near impossible in Nigeria’s limiting socio-political space for anyone, never-mind a woman who does not have generational wealth or any male benevolence to build from.

You are the only one I know of, who has managed despite all of those factors to build a non-patronage,-non-nepotic, non-violence negotiated,  self actualised power base with the potential, capacity and resources to build an empire which will transform Nigeria’s media industry with reverberating effects across Africa echoed around the world.” – part of an email from a mentor to me that gladdened my heart and I just had to share. Nothing beats encouraging and kind words from someone you look up to. Words like this make you never want to quit no matter how tired you get because you know there are so many people rooting for you and others looking up to you.

So excited about the future. #theresnostoppingthiswoman. #myoffice. #bekindtoothers. #encouragepeople. LiTV launch May 22nd

Nigerian Ladies considered most likely to be entrepreneurs than their U.S counterparts.

askdamz-1525084350455

Contrary to what our Leaders are doing to us, the world now considers the Nigerian woman four times as like to be an entrepreneur than a woman in the U.S. The urge for  independence of a Nigerian woman is being felt in her day to day activity, her urge to better herself,  her need to make her own money and become a sustainable system to her own self. The Nigerian woman now draws power from the insufficiency of the society and the people she once considered her backbone and a saving grace. The moment she realised that she was and still is actually a lot stronger    than she was made to believe, she picked up her load, not without doubt, and fought her way up.

The weird thing is, most men don’t have any other thing to bring to the table except money. When a man realises that you can provide your own money for yourself,  the are disoriented because they don’t know what else they can give to you. They feel  threatened because you have taken up the only responsibility they were told all their lives that belonged to them. Their love is not constant because they were not built to be like that unlike he women. So men are climbing down the ladder of responsibility and giving up their birth right to women who in turn dont need them any longer.

Long live the Nigerian woman.

Linda Ikeji to launch her online channel in 4 weeks time.

officiallindaikeji-1524402527082

The blogger and admirable  entrepreneur is about to launch her online channel, with the hope of becoming the Netflix of Africa. She made the announcement, of the channel that cost her N500 million to put together. Read her impressive announcement below.

from @officiallindaikeji – Hi guys, so in exactly one month from today, May 22nd, the online version of our Linda Ikeji TV channel will debut.
Why online first? Well, the world is online, so despite the fact that we are going to have a DSTV channel, having an online version of our platform was very important to me, mostly for our potential consumers who don’t live in Nigeria and have no access to cable in Nigeria, plus so many Nigerians who live in Nigeria get their content online.

Bringing our amazing content to consumers all over the world, instead of being restricted only Nigeria, was important to me. We are starting with our Nigerian content but plan expand to other African countries.

We are hoping to be to Africa what Netflix is to the world. (They have 125million subscribers and made a profit of $11billion in 2017) 😆. When we launch in May, I hope you guys will come through for your girl and subscribe to the TV channel to watch all the amazing content we have put together which includes all our reality shows, sitcoms, TV series, comedy shows, movies and so many TV shows.

In the last one and a half years, I have spent at least half a billion Naira of my own money (no bank loan, no investors) to put this TV channel together (equipment, studios, manpower/staff, producing/buying of content, rents, licensing etc). I truly hope you guys will love & enjoy our programmes, which includes Oyinbo Wives of Lagos, Gidi Girls, King Tonto, Toyin Abraham: True and Bare, Ajegunle With Love, Football Wives, Ex-girlfriends of Nigerian Entertainers, Made In Gidi, Magodo Mums and their single friend, Ice Prince: Rise and Grind, Annabel: My life as a former Nigerian stripper, Highway Girls of Eko (a show on real life prostitutes), Leading Ladies Africa, Verified, Double Trouble, How Well Do You Know Me (A couple’s game show), Gossip Court, The Report Card, Bars (a show on the Nigerian hip hop culture) Phenomenons (interviews of some of the greatest Nigerian achievers), Classics, Igwe Must Hear This, The Paranormal House on Brown Road (a sitcom about ghosts), and so many other shows.Plus we have quite a number of TV series/dramas & movies.Gosh, can’t wait to unveil our channel on May 22nd. 🤩

So if you don’t like one programme, you definitely will like another.  This lady keeps impressing me. I can’t wait to check out the programme about prostitutes.  Lol.. I like those girls, because They go through a lot.

Fan takes love for Davido to a whole new level.

bellanaijaonline-1521287227526

The talent to appreciate here, will be that of the guy to carved that on the hair. Many will want to know his he managed to do that on a scalp.

Many have had tattoos of the singers they look up to, but you don’t see this hair photo everyday.

From the singers’ perspective, I wonder how it feels to see people have your face on their body. Could it be scary, or nerve wrecking, or just elating. It look so good. I think they did a good job on the hair.

Breaking: Coca-Cola to launch its first ever alcoholic drink in Japan.

download

Good news for lovers of Coca Cola, and alcohol. Because it is a happier time for them, because the company has branched into a new place in its business life, as they combined the creativity, with the need to diversify. Coca Cola is about to launch its first ever alcoholic drink in Japan, as it plans to test out a canned beverage called “Chu-Hi”.   

The drink is made up of distilled Japanese drink Shochu, sparkling water and flavouring. The president of Coca-cola’s Japan business unit acknowledges that Japan is a fiercely competitive market, even though the company’s sodas only made up about 25% of products sales by volume in Japan in 2016.

While tea made up 27% of Japan’s overall beverage consumption the same year. But the company says it had the world’s highest frosting canned coffee drink. Georgia coffee in Japan made more than $1billion in annual sales in 2017. Coca Cola doesn’t plan on bringing the new alcoholic beverages anywhere else. Will it taste like coke, or will  then have an entirely different product?

Man goes on a date with a naked lady, without noticing.

instablog9ja-1519861999608

How much happenings do you notice around you on a daily basis? Not so much in the case of this young man who went on a date with a model, Joy Jewell, who showed up for a Tinder date at the mall wearing nothing but body paint,to see how her potential blind date would react to her make belief outfit. Suspected that the date tried to be respectful and only stare at her face, like he was expected to.

According to Instablog, Jewell teamed up with body painter, Jen Seidel. When they first met, Joy was wearing a big coat, which he helped her remove, revealing her clothe less body, before they had ordered their coffees. He then told her he liked her outfit. After finishing their coffees the pair went for a walk around the mall but the game was almost up when a group of girls spotted the paint and the cameraman and asked for selfies.

It was only when they’re on their way to the car park at the end of the date and walked into the rain that Joy was forced to admit she’s wearing nothing but paint to avoid an awkward reveal.

A Black girl has made a ‘hair Nah’ game which she described as being born out of the annoying, non stopping, and inappropriate hair touch she has experienced in life. She was tired of people touching her hair.

An American Momo pixel created the game where you get to create your very own character, with the skin tone and hair of your choice, and fight off people’s hands from your hair. This looks like a fun game, I definitely will give it a try really soon.
