According to the international magazine, Nwandu, within two years, transformed TSR, an Instagram account and blog, to a flourishing media empire.
“As more and more of our own daily interactions happen online, so, too, does celebrity drama. And Nwandu, 25, has made it her business to capture it.
“Two years ago, she started TSR an Instagram account and blog that aims to be like Page Six for celebrities on social media: a chronicle of who likes whose posts, who comments on whose photos, and who starts following (or better yet, unfollowing) each other.
“Since then, TSR has become a burgeoning media empire, replete with its own tipsters, staff (there are now four full-time employees), and advertisers—all of whom serve an audience of 3.9 million. And counting’” the magazine said.

Legendary actor, Pete Edochie, has said African leaders are full of deceit and as such, smaller gods should be used to swear them into office rather than the Bible.
The actor, who is currently in Ghana made this known when he paid a courtesy visit to Ghana’s former President, Jerry John Rawlings.
Edochie also noted that he does not only bear resemblance to Rawlings, but sees him as a brother.
The ace actor said, “State officials who swear with the Bible become more corrupt when they are in office.
“God forgives easily, so these officials do not take the oath serious whenever they hold the Bible to swear.
“But the smaller gods are not merciful like the Almighty God who created heaven and earth.
“They should swear with gods so that it will put fear in these corrupt leaders to distance themselves from corruption.”

The actor thinks the low patronage of the Igbo language by its natives may lead to its extinction.
“Igbos are no longer proudly speaking their language, if you ask somebody a question in Igbo they will reply with English and English don’t even suit their mouth. If we keep running away from our language it will die.”
According to Edochie, he has tried to promote his language whenever he gets the opportunity despite being trained in English like many.

Miss Anambra Sex Video: What Really Happened!

Embattled 20-year-old ex-beauty queen, Chidinma Okeke, has finally broken her silence.
A video of the former Miss Anambra has been trending since October 11, 2016, a few days before the expiration of her tenure on October 28.
Narrating her own side of the story to The Nation, Chidinma said: “Early last year, the ABS advertised for the Miss Anambra beauty pageant. I heard of it and went to make enquiry.
“My roommate was also interested, but one of the organisers told me to apply. I told them I was not interested but the man insisted that I might win the competition. He also promised to give me the form for free if I indicated interest, and he did when I agreed to contest.
“But one Jane told me that before a winner would be declared, there were certain things to be done, including the (sex) video. I consented after some persuasion from the organisers. I later went for the contest at the Marble Arch Hotels in Awka, and I was declared winner with a Kia Rio vehicle as star prize.
