Our stars were all over social media today celebrating their children or their fathers on Father’s day.
Fathers do such a wonderful job and are worth having a special day of their own to be shown all the love back. So here’s wishing all the dads out there a Happy Father’s Day.

Here’s Romancia’s quote for the day.
You cannot be inspired if you are surrounded with negativity.
Open the door and step into the inspirational garden of nature.
Do not let life make you bitter, there is always another way
If you let the love of God guide you.
Good morning y’all

The 15-Year-Old App Developer
Not only is she one of the youngest coders to be making major waves in the tech world, but 15-year-old Helena Mark is also one of the only girls changing what used to be the dude-dominated coding world. After developing her first website in 5th grade and publishing her first app in 8th grade, Helena just beat out hundreds of students to win a scholarship to Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco. Helena is using her coding skills for good, working on a new app called AdoptMe that helps shelter pets find homes. “Through the input of volunteers, the app compiles posts to social media pages that links individual animal stories together with hashtags and creates a story for each animal,” she explained. “The faster we can get pets adopted, the more animals a shelter can help.”

I was just sent this super-hilarious video by a friend and I thought it too funny to keep to myself alone.
The video depicts our president and wife in the bedroom and PEJ with tears flowing laments the fact that “na only one person waka come”. All the time, GEJ is trying to calm her down. At this point, the couple break out in song, doing a comical version of PSquare’s hit tune, Personally.
Heartlessly, she was dubbed ‘the world’s ugliest woman’ but now, Lizzie Velasquez has beaten the bullies and turned her life around by standing up to the cruel taunts.
Lizzie, 24, from Austin, Texas, was born without adipose tissue – meaning she has no body fat and despite eating up to 60 small meals a day, remains at a delicate 4 stone.
Directed by Mr. Moe Musa, the thrilling video is just what I expected from the Queen of Nigerian pop music.
If I tell you now that she wore just one costume for the whole video, you might get disappointed, but I will be quick to say, "oh what a costume it was….." It definitely was enough to keep you interested in the three and half minute video.
The song which samples the hook from Damien Marley’s tune, Jamrock, is off her debut studio album, Once Upon A Time. It's a catchy, lyrically rich number and the video has got some innovative moves which I am touting to create the next trending moves you will be seeing all over Instagram.
It’s already looking like a Youtube hit in the making with almost 350,000 views since its release there on May 27, 2014.
Watch the vid after the cut and please let me know what you think, especially about the opening scene *winks*
It’s been 5 years since we last heard from Amerie. In2009, she released her newest album Love and War and while it was popular with critics, it didn’t quite have the same momentum as her 2005 smash hit, 1 Thing. The good news though is that she’s back with a single that I think is sure-to-please.
Much like 1 Thing, the funky track boasts a killer sample – the hook of Sugarhill Gang’s infectious classic, Apache – that will leave y’all lyrically lovestruck and strapping on your dancing shoes.
Amerie’s next album is called Cymatika Vol. 1but there’s no official release date yet.

is a popular wedding guest - whether she's invited or not! The tennis pro just got back from attending , Italy and over the weekend, she attended another wedding that she wasn't even invited to!
The 32-year-old was taking it easy on a beach in Miami on Saturday when she noticed a wedding going on. So, what did she do? She crashed it, obviously...
Well, Tunde Edwho? That’s the question that I hear most people asking, but if you follow the Nigerian entertainment scene, you might have heard the name. the comedian/musician has been off the scene for a while now.
In what seems to be a move to relaunch himself on the scene, Mr. Ednut posted a photo on Instagram and captioned it, “Just felt I should drop this!” The photo of a man’s chiselled abs was eventually discovered by fans not to be his own and you can trust that they were quick to call him out.

Gosh some makeup you see these days just make you shudder. Makeup is an art which all girls have to embrace because your face is the canvass. If you are going to wear makeup, then you better learn to wear it right. That is why I'm going to be running a series to give girls useful tips on how to wear makeup right. Thank me later.
