ETINOSA IDEMUDIA REACTS TO TBOSS STATEMENT ABOUT WOMEN WITH MOUSTACHES

Nollywood actress, Etinosa Idemudia has reacted to a statement made by reality TV star TBoss on Monday, 3rd April, 2021 about women with Moustaches.

TBoss made a post on her social media page where she asked women with moustaches to take them off, as she gets confused identifying whether they are men or women.

The reality TV star further shaded men who find women with moustaches attractive, stating:

Dear Females, You see that strip of hair, that’s on top of your lip, yeah? Yessss.That moustache. Take it OFF… Please take it off. Some of y’all got so much hair I be confuse If you’re a man or a woman“.

Etinosa, who found the statement unpleasant, took to her Instagram page to call out TBoss, citing her post as insensitive.

“You said nothing but the truth. Any man that finds girls with moustache attractive has the tendency to be gay,” she wrote while responding to Tboss’s post.

“Did it ever occur to you that some women with moustache have it as a result of medical conditions they are dealing with? For me it is PCOS. The more you take the hair out the more it comes so if you are lucky to have it faint you are advised to just leave it”.

 TBoss, everyone is dealing with something. The public statement you made was so insensitive. Please be nice and use Google next time you have the urge to give unsolicited advice, especially about a woman’s body.” Etinosa responded.

TBoss later shared a screenshot of a message from a fan who agreed with her take on women with a moustache. In the message, the fan stated that men who were attracted to ladies with moustaches had the tendency to be gay.

According to her, “It still feels unbelievable. I applied to so many schools I didn’t even think any school would accept me”.

Nigerian singer, Divine Ikubor, popularly known as Rema has acquired a VVS diamond chain worth $40k (N15 million).

Rema

The singer, who signed a record deal with Jonzing World, a subsidiary of Mavin Records in 2019, took to his personal Instagram handle to show off the flashy jewelry on his Instagram story. 

Rema started his career in music at his local church in his hometown, where he was made the youth leader for a program called “Rap Nation”. The program taught kids how to rap for the congregation.

The singer lost his father in 2008 and seven years later his brother died, leaving him with his mother and two sisters.

The financial downtime placed on the Mavin star led to a year long move to Ghana as he revealed in an interview that they were hungry with no money coming in and he had to do something as the only man in the house.

He rose to prominence with the release of the song “Iron Man”, which appeared on Barack Obama‘s 2019 summer playlist.

UNVAILING OF ROADMAP FOR FOOD SUFFICIENCY IN LAGOS STATE

The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has unveiled a 5-year food sufficiency road map for Lagos State to enhance food sufficiency in the state to cushion the adverse impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and other factors on food security in the state.

According to the Journal of Public Health in Africa in 2019, a study done to assess the level of food security among urban households in Shomolu LGA, Lagos State showed that only 33.8% of households were food secure, 45.1% were food insecure without hunger and 21.1% were food insecure with hunger.

In a 2020 report on the Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Bureau of Statistics said Lagos State is one of the top 4 states where food insecurity appeared to be prevalent. “Households in all four states are drawing down their savings and borrowing money to cover their living expenses, which may leave them more economically vulnerable and reduce their investments in human capital in the future,” the NBS report said.

In a series of tweets, the governor projected that the growth plan is expected to attract investment to the tune of over $10 billion, from the public and private sector, donor agencies, and development partners. The question, therefore, is whether this plan by the Lagos state government will help to solve the food insecurity problem in Lagos, especially in the long run, and if the investment projections will eventually get to the common man on the streets of Lagos.

“We will work with private sector players, connecting them to business-friendly credit facilities and give incentives to improve private participation, while also formulating enabling policies to encourage return on investment.”

Sanwo-Olu also revealed that he will revamp the Agricultural Land Holding Authority (ALHA) to drive investment in agriculture. He said he will work with the North Central States for land availability. He encouraged states in the South West to key into the project.

The governor invited the general public to join Lagos in making history and becoming the agricultural powerhouse of Nigeria, promising that the next five years will be productive, competitive & transformational.

Nigerian music artiste, Innocent Idibia, popularly known as Tuface or 2Baba, has expressed disappointment at the management of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) over its poor handling of passengers travelling abroad.

2Baba

2Baba took to his Instagram page on Tuesday, 20th April 2021, where he called out the organization, complaining about its poor work ethics in a series of videos he made at an airport on his Instagram story. He revealed that he and some Nigerians were unable to make it back to the country and were stranded at the airport because the NCDC portal was down.

2Baba at the Airport

The singer said the compulsory COVID-19 test portal collects fifty thousand Naira per passenger, but even after payments were done, it failed to deliver the QR code for each person, causing passengers to get stranded at the airport, as they were not allowed to proceed on their trip, despite the fact that the circumstances in which they found themselves was not their making.

2Baba captioned one of the videos on his instagram story and also his instagram feed.

2baba expressing his disappointment

He further expressed frustration at the way and manner the NCDC staff have caused unnecessary hardship for travelers stating that he made several calls to the NCDC office and no one answered the call.


NCDC; you people better wake up. You are causing serious hardship for people travelling. You will be at the airport, they tell you to pay or bring several things. What is this? What kind of wickedness is all this one? This office knows that people travel every second, yet, they are closed. We called their line, nobody picked up. What kind of evil is that? Just imagine Nigerians stranded at the airport because of some useless people. This is unacceptable. It is annoying. It is totally annoying. This is wickedness.” 2baba said in the video

Other passengers shown in the video expressed their disappointment at the NCDC for causing delays in their flights.

The NCDC website has it stated that a pre-boarding COVID-19 PCR test MUST be done by travelers within 96 hours before departure.

Also, tests done more than 96 hours before departure are not valid and passengers will not be allowed to board and the price of the test ranges from 36,000 thousand Naira to 50,400 thousand Naira on the payment portal.
