This can be clearly seen as defeating all proven medical records to me. No doubt in Science world, women mostly can not give birth and goes into the menopause,

Here is how medicinenet  defined it
The average age of menopause is 51 years old, but menopause may occur as early as the 30s or as late as the 60s. There is no reliable lab test to predict when a woman will experience menopause. The age at which a woman starts having menstrual periods is not related to the age of menopause onset.

Well this breaking news happened in Lagos state, Nigeria. And it was announced by the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH).

The photo above is said to be the woman, and her husband proudly carrying their twin baby, a boy and a girl.

According to statement released by the Chairman of LUTH's Medical Advisory Committee Prof. W. L. Adeyemo, it was gathered that the lady who got pregnant for the first time through In vitro fertilisation (IVF), gave birth to her babies on Tuesday April 14.

If you could recall when news had it that a daughter of billionaire businessman and oil magnate, Femi Otedola, Temi and girlfriend to Music star Mr Eazi, would be appearing in Kunle Afolayan’s forthcoming movie, ‘Citation’, some time agao,many, especially on social media, implied that her father must have ‘arranged’ the role for her.

But according to weekend Beats, Otedola maintained that she actually merited the role. She said, “I have been watching Mr Afolayan’s films for a long time. From Figurine to October 1st and when I met him, I told him I had been watching his movies for a long time. He then told me that he had a script he was working on and the lead character is actually a girl around my age. It was a story I could relate to and I was interested. I felt it was a character I could interpret well. I read the script and I was so excited. For a whole month, I had to audition because he wasn’t sure.

For about six months, we discussed the role and I’m so excited because I feel the story would resonate with people. Also, I believe that I would do justice to the role. I really cannot give much details about the script but I’m so honoured and humbled to be given this opportunity.”

Known better as a fashion blogger and social media personality, Temi, who owns the style blog, JTO Fashion, however, stated that she has always loved acting. According to her, she had just been waiting for the right time and platform to showcase her talent. And with Kunle Afolayan, she found the perfect opportunity to explore that creative side of herself. “I am so happy that this is coming at this time because it means I would be starting from the top,” she said.

On what fascinated her about the script, the graduate of History of Art from the University of London said, “The message is to tell women that we are hearing their stories, that we believe them. Women are being harassed in several ways and I believe that this movie would embolden those who are affected to come out and tell their stories.”

Local Way I Learnt Making Hand Sanitizer

 image -wikihow 
Even the Nigerian Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (NCDC) says, that if you want to avoid the transmission of disease — including COVID-19, caused by the novel coronavirus — the best way to do that is to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and avoid touching your face. But if you’re traveling or otherwise don’t have access to soap and water, the next best thing is hand sanitizer.



However, if you really want some to carry around and can’t find any at your local stores, you can make your own — and it really isn’t that hard.



    Combine in a bowl:
    ⅔-cup rubbing alcohol (99% isopropyl alcohol)
    ⅓-cup aloe vera gel.
    Stir. Decant into a clean soap or pump bottle.

    That's it

Although recipes differ slightly (for example, some recommend adding a scented oil while others keep that step optional), but there is general agreement that if you want to create your own hand sanitizer, you need to be aware of a few things:

    To be effective, hand sanitizer needs to have a strength of at least 60 percent alcohol. Since you’re going to have to mix your sanitizer with aloe vera gel in order to stabilize it and protect your hands, most recipes suggest that the mixture contain at least two-thirds 99 percent isopropyl alcohol and one-third gel. A 91 percent alcohol would work as well. (You can probably ignore the occasional suggestion to use vodka instead of isopropyl alcohol since many vodkas are only 40 percent alcohol. And anyway, why waste good liquor?)

    On the other hand, the ethanol (also known as ethyl alcohol) in distilled beverages, such as vodka, is also effective. In fact, it’s actually considered more effective against some types of infectious diseases than isopropyl alcohol. But in order to get the proper strength, you’d have to find alcohol that is 180 proof or higher.

    Sanitizer is only effective if you cover your hands thoroughly and then let them dry. Squirting a few drops into your palms and then wiping your hands isn’t going to help at all.
    If your hands are heavily soiled or greasy, then, according to the CDC, hand sanitizer isn’t going to do much

Given a choice, though, the best thing you can do is wash your hands and keep them away from your face.

See 10 Celebrities in Nigeria That Have a Criminal Record On Their Files



Last week, Funke Akindele, and her husband, Abdulrasheed Bello, aka JJC Skillz, made the news when they were sentenced to 14 days community service and ordered to pay fines of N100,000 each, for violating the lockdown currently in place in Lagos State. Omani Franklin takes a look at other entertainers that have had issues with the law

Funke Akindele and JJC Skillz

Actress, Funke Akindele, and husband, Abdulrasheed Bello, popularly known as JJC Skillz, were arrested for violating the Federal and Lagos State directives on the lockdown to curb the spread of the coronavirus by hosting a party with more than 20 guests in attendance. The video of the party was uploaded on social media, and this got many Nigerians upset and ranting about the danger involved. Meanwhile, the actress was in an advertisement, advising people to observe social distancing and maintain proper hygiene during this period.

The celebrity couple were arraigned at an Ogba Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on Monday, April 6. They both pleaded guilty and were sentenced to 14 days community service and ordered to pay fines of N100,000 each.

Burna Boy

Damini Ogulu, aka Burna Boy is one of the biggest music artistes in Africa at the moment. But he also seems to have a knack for getting into trouble.

In 2017, Burna Boy, was arrested for alleged involvement in the robbery of his colleague, Abiye Jumbo, popularly called Mr 2kay. He was subsequently arraigned before an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on two counts of ‘accessory to after fact and failing to give information to the police on the attack’.

Before his arraignment, the singer had been declared wanted by the then Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, following his refusal to respond to an invitation by the police.

Four suspects, including Burna Boy’s road manager, Joel Kantiock, had been paraded for allegedly robbing Mr 2Kay on October 22, 2017, in his room at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, after a show.

The suspects allegedly confessed that Burna Boy mobilised them with an initial cash sum of N50,000 and a subsequent sum of N50,000 to carry out the attack.

Meanwhile, the ‘Ye’ singer was allegedly barred from the United Kingdom for some years on account of a gang-related crime. The ban was allegedly lifted in 2016 though Ogulu maintained in an interview that he came to Nigeria of his own volition and was not deported from the UK.

Wizkid

Star Boy Entertainment boss, Ayodeji Balogun, aka Wizkid, was reported to the police by blogger, Linda Ikeji, after he threatened to attack her.

Ikeji had published a story that Wizkid was served a quit notice at his Lekki, Lagos, home. The singer however refuted the report, also adding that he would send his 16-year-old cousin to beat her up.

Apparently not wanting to let the threat go unreported, Ikeji made a formal complaint to the Lagos State Command of the police and Wizkid was invited to the station. She later stated that Wizkid, through his lawyers, apologised to her. He also formally apologised at the police station and wrote an undertaking.

Dammy Krane

Oyindamola Emmanuel, popularly known as Dammy Krane, was arrested on Friday, June 2, 2017 on charges of alleged grand theft third degree/armed/conspiracy/credit card forgery/intent to defraud after a complaint was made by an American aviation company, Tapjets.

According to Tapjets, the singer used five different credit cards which did not belong to him while trying to book a private jet.

He was released from jail in Miami after meeting his bail conditions, set at $7,500. He pleaded not guilty to the charges. He claimed that a promoter who had booked him for a show was the one that made the travel arrangements with the credit cards in question. However, this was after he spent three days in custody.

He was subsequently acquitted of all the charges.

Naira Marley

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission arrested popular singer, Afeez Fashola, otherwise known as Naira Marley, and four others in relation to alleged advance fee fraud and related cyber crimes on May 10, 2019.

The singer was arrested shortly after his song, ‘Am I a Yahoo Boy’ was released. He was slammed with 11- count charges and arraigned before a Federal High Court in Lagos.

In December 2019, the ‘Tesumole’ singer was declared wanted by the police. It was alleged that the singer, his two siblings and a cousin had driven away a car that hit his motorcade on their way to a show on Victoria Island, Lagos. The charges against the singer were later withdrawn by the police.

Not a stranger to controversies and run-ins with the law, Marley was also detained by the Nigeria Police after he attended a house party hosted by actress, Funke Akindele, to mark her husband, JJC Skillz’ birthday in their house in Lagos despite the lockdown in the state. Later, the charges against him were dropped by the Lagos State government.

Ibinabo Fiberesima

In 2009, actress and former beauty queen, Ibinabo Fiberesima, was sued by the family of a medical doctor, Giwa Suraj, for reckless driving, which resulted in the death of the doctor.

The case went on for a while but in 2016, Fiberesima was sentenced to five years in prison by a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos. She was however granted bail in the sum of N2m and told to provide two sureties by the Court of Appeal in Lagos, pending the determination of her appeal at the Supreme Court.

Baba Suwe

In 2011, actor, Babatunde Omidina, aka Baba Suwe, was arrested by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, on the allegation that he had ingested substances suspected to be hard drugs. He was detained after a body scanner at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Ikeja, Lagos, allegedly identified suspected hard drugs in his stomach on his way out of the country.

However, after more than three weeks of observation in detention, officials of the NDLEA admitted that he didn’t excrete any drugs.

He was subsequently released on bail and a Lagos High Court later ordered that the NDLEA should pay him the sum of N25m as compensation for illegal detention.

Almost a decade after, Omidina maintained that the NDLEA had not paid him.

Lola Margaret

Actress, Lola Margaret, was arrested in the United States of America in 2018. She was reported to be in detention for two weeks after she allegedly tried to withdraw a huge amount of money deposited in her account.

She was later released and deported from the US to Nigeria. Upon her return to the country, the actress kept mum on the case but earlier this year (in January), at the private screening of a movie produced by Faithia Williams, she claimed to be a victim of circumstance. She said,

Quote
“I trusted a friend who betrayed me and led to my arrest. But here I am today enjoying myself. Life has to go on.”

Taiwo Akinwade

In September 2006, actress, Taiwo Akinwade, popularly called Wunmi, was arrested by the NDLEA at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, as she was about to board a plane to London. She later excreted 92 wraps of cocaine at the NDLEA cell where she was detained. In January 2007, she was eventually sentenced to three years in prison or pay a fine of N1m.

Uche Odoputa

In 2007, actor, Uche Odoputa, was arrested by the Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency for drug trafficking and was jailed for two years and three weeks.

In an interview with Punch after his release from jail, the Imo State indigene stated that he was faced with financial issues which led him into the illegal act. He said, “I regret my actions. I was a growing brand and a lot of people were angered by my action. I was disappointed in myself. I thank God I came out of prison a changed person.

Sauce Kid

Rapper, Babalola Falemi, aka Sauce Kid (Sinzu) was, in 2017, arrested in the US for aggravated identity theft.

He was sentenced to two years in jail after he pleaded guilty to the crime, which was described in the US penal code as the unlawful taking of the property of another person or business, ranging from $1000 to $500,000.

Sinzu was said to have stolen over 15 bank cards, encoded the bank numbers into blank cards, changed the PINs, and withdrew cash from Automated Teller Machines. He allegedly stole $15,388 from the unsuspecting victims.

He eventually served his sentence in a federal prison and has since regained his freedom.

Reason Why Nollywood Is Not Growing - Movie Producer/Director Uche Akwari Speaks





Nollywood actor and producer, Uche Akwari, has said the industry can grow bigger than its present level if only stakeholders in the industry are united.


In a recent interview with Nollywoodportal, he said, “In the industry, people have been struggling on their own. The main issue we have is that everybody sees this as a competition; they are not seeing it as an industry we have to put our hands together and build. Everybody wants to be heard and outshine the other person; the team spirit is not there.



 Speaking from San Francisco California in United States of America where he is on his yearly vacation, Uche Akwari said “The industry has come a long way and there are people who have made a lot of sacrifices for it to get to where it is today. If we can remember the aims of these individuals who made those sacrifices and carried everybody along, we should be able to work around our differences.

He went on to say, 'my good friend, Orji Uchechukwu Charles and Chika Ike, produced the movie, "The Sound of tomorrow", and it competed with my movie, All against Love, which eventually won the AMVCA for Best Movie. Another movie,




"Happy" is another good movie, that was made by two producers,Francis Ifeanyichukwu Eugene and Igwe Sunday Shedrack.

  These people put funds together and united to put out something worthwhile. That is the way to go. But there are some producers that even if you want to assist them, they get unnecessarily suspicious and hostile.”
