The Oputa Matriarch has bowed out of the race just like her famous husband. Charlie boy reportedly loses mum this week. Whole it wasn’t a news that made headline, many are nostalgic to the significance of the family in Nigeria. Charlie boy who has been in all kinds of bruhaha lately, was surprisingly silent when he lost his mum. Unlike his usual self, who is quick to announce or make public the recent happenings.
The Area Father of Abuja like he is popularly called, is now making it known thag he mother has always wanted a quiet life, and that has inturn made her request for a silent burial according to Charles Oputa, aka Charlie Boy.
He said his mother, Mrs Margaret Oputa, who passed on during the week, lived a fulfilled life, and saying although he was not in the country when she passed, he believed she was sent off with the right people by her side as his wife, daughters and grandchildren were with her at the time of transition .
The self-acclaimed president of all frustrated Nigerians said his mother died in her sleep and her death was worth celebrating. We wish them a depth of consolation only the good Lord gives.
The world we live in right now is incredibly, disturbingly scary. By speaking the truth about the tragic passing of a neighbor, this young Man has been sent to an early grave. This is horrible.
from @shaunking – BIG ANNOUNCEMENT.
My friend and brother Bill Perkins @BillPerkins is providing $100,000 for the reward to help us find who murdered Joshua Brown.
Joshua was executed.
He was a lead witness in the murder of Botham Jean & was shot & killed right there in his apartment complex. We will not stop until we find who did this. Joshua had no enemies, no debts, worked full-time and lived a very quiet life.

This is an emotional moment in court where Joshua Brown talks about what he knew about Botham Jean. He breaks down and court has to go into recess. He was deeply effected by this murder. But by testifying that he could hear Botham singing in his apartment he undermines a key element of the defense. Amber claimed she shouted commands to Botham before shooting him. She didn’t. No one heard that. No neighbors. No passerby’s. Not Joshua as he walked down the corridor. No one. I just learned from the medical examiner that Joshua was shot in his mouth and his chest. He was ambushed at his apartment complex as he got out of his car and shot at close range. His mother asked that I do whatever it takes to get to the bottom of his murder. She suspects foul play and it is difficult to rule it out. He had no known enemies. He worked for a living. He was not in the streets. We need answers. Immediately.
Joshua Brown, the next door neighbor of #BothamJean, was reportedly shot and killed late Friday night near his apartment complex in Dallas, @lawandcrime reports.
Coincidentally, Joshua testified against Amber Guyger during her trial just days earlier. As we previously reported, Amber was sentenced to 10 years in prison for the murder of Botham Jean. Please keep the families involved in your prayers, #Roomies. (📸: @lawandcrime)
Alagba, the 344-year-old tortoise in the palace of the Soun of Ogbomoso, #OyoState, is dead.
The scared tortoise which was the oldest in Africa, was sick for a few days before her death on Thursday.
Confirming the news of Alagba’s demise to the Nigerian Tribune, the Private Secretary to Oba Oyewumi, Toyin Ajamu, stressed that the tortoise, which attracted people from all over the world, will be greatly missed by everyone who came in contact with her during her lifetime.
According to Ajamu: “Alagba had lived in the palace for centuries. The tortoise played host to many monarchs in Ogbomoso in the past. Alagba became popular because Oba Oladunni Oyewumi, Soun of ogbomosoland, used his personal resources to cater for her well being.
The tortoise had two staff members of the palace dedicated to her. They provide food, health support and other logistics, so as to make sure she gets the best treatment. .
Often times, Kabiyesi shared great moments with Alagba. On a daily basis, Alagba, had tourists visiting her from different part of the world. The palace household, Ogbomoso community and stakeholders in the tourism sector are mourning Alagba’s passing.”
The palace secretary explained that plans were underway to preserve Alagba’s body for historical records.
Former Nigeria football team flying eagles striker Isaac Promise has reportedly died at the age of 31 (maybe football age?) , after a brief illness.
He passed away on Wednesday last week. He captained Nigeria to the 2003 Fifa U17 World Cup held in Finland, as well as the 2005 Fifa U20 World Cup in the Netherlands.
Also, at the 2008 Olympics, he played a key role in the country’s silver finish in Beijing – scoring in the 2-1 triumph over USA in the preliminary round. Promise made his senior national team debut in 2009.
Promise was an unused substitute as the USL Championship side secured a 2-1 away victory at Portland Timbers on Tuesday.
The entertainment world has greatly missed your and your ways of delivery. Bernie Mac was the one man who was constantly watched and enjoyed while I was growing up, it is just a sudden disappearance of happiness. He would have been 62 on Oct 5th. He will be missed. Continue to rest in peace Uncle Mac.

His body couldn’t handle the surgery plus the complications of his medical condition. I can’t put into words how much we love our pets and how much this hurts. Daddy meant the world to us and was such a light in our home. Every day was smiles and he brought so much love into our lives..😌 Nathan and I know that Daddy and Diamond are together watching over us. My heart breaks in a million pieces thinking about not snuggling with him tonight. We love you big man 🐶
Barely three days after a girl was strangled to death inside a hotel room in Rivers State, another has been killed in the same manner.
The latest incident happened on Monday night and the body of the victim was discovered on Tuesday morning, inside the room of the hotel located along Stadium Rd, Rumuomasi, Port Harcourt. .
This time around, the man suspected to be the killer was captured by the hotel’s CCTV. According to the video, currently being analyzed by the police, the duo checked in around 11:30pm on Monday.
However, the alleged suspect left alone the following day. The lady was later found tied up and strangled after the suspected serial killer had already left. The Rivers State police are currently handling the situation.
Before we continue, I would like to state that that man lived a ripe old age because 95 is such a beautiful age.
The very first post independence President of the one and only Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe dies at 95
He was aged 95. He died after battling ill health. Mugabe was ousted from power in a military coup in November 2017, ending his three-decade reign and then seeing into power very first president since the reign of Mugabe.
Just like most other Afican Presidents his extravagant and illegitimate possessions were listed which includes his gold interior home that had all kinds of golden items in it.
May his soul rest in peace with the Lord, and as far as we know, he has lived a good life on earth.

from @voguemagazine – On the anniversary of the world losing the “queen of hearts,” we remember one of the many marks Princess Diana left on a world that continues to adore her. Her singular style lives on, on the cover of Vogue and in many of today’s ongoing trends; Some of our favorite photos capture Princess Di at her most casual. Tap the link in our bio for more of our favorite effortless looks.
from @comiclonilove – It’s been 22 years since Princess Di’s death. On the evening of June 29 1994, Prince Charles publicly confessed his affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles for the first time in a television interview. Meanwhile, the Princess of Wales made a last-minute decision to attend a ball and wear this dress.
Diana had originally feared that the designer dress by Christina Stambolian may have been “too daring”, but the late royal made fashion history when she donned the “revenge dress” in the wake of her split from Prince Charles. It would be one of her most iconic moments, the queen that never was. #princessdiana

Credit to from @natausha_a (@get_regrann) – Morning Marathoner’s, today is the day that I step out my comfort zone and travel to pay my respects to a young man who has inspired me in more ways than one to follow my heart and do something I love and want to do, EMPOWER people. I don’t know what to expect from this trip but I pray I am able to enjoy myself and allow myself to take in the ambiance of a man that is loved and respected by so many ppl. The person that I am today I owe a little of that to him, because of him I’m reading more, looking into myself more spiritually, looking to own my own (any and everything), and teach my kids to follow their dreams. Tomorrow is his birthday and I refuse to let a fence stop me from seeing where it all started and eneded for him… prayers for safe travels as I fly out this afternoon.. Hope to meet some amazing ppl ™️©️🏁💙 #StayFocused #nipseyhussle #VictoryLap #themarathonclothing #slausonboy #blaccsam #marathon #mailboxmoney #crenshaw #laurenlondon #respect #themarathoncontinues #longlivenipsey #onenippostadaytilifadeaway – #regrann

Credit to from @jlo (@get_regrann) – Today we lay to rest my Titi Rose… we will lay her next to our beloved uncle, as was her wish, who were married their whole lives and had three beautiful daughters @tdrios215, @drios818 and @trios22, my closest cousins who I grew up with who were so close we always seemed like sisters… I have so many emotions as I write this. About how fierce, tough and unapologetically herself she was… she taught me what it was to be a hard working woman…she, like the other women I was fortunate enough to be raised by taught me to be independent and unafraid of life and what it would bring! To laugh, dance, and stay close to family. And I am grateful for all she ever did for me. But I think I will remember her most like the video above laughing with her sisters and family on every Christmas birthday and random day on the set… I love you Titi, I am glad you and Tio are together again! Say hi to grandma and Titi Myrza. I love you all forever. I carry your strength and love with me always. We will make all of you proud. 🌹❤️#familia #myguardianangels #nevergonealwayswithme – #regrann
