Did  you have  any  fear of being accepted back  after a 10-year break  from acting  and what were the difficulties you encountered coming back to the  movie industry?

I didn’t have any fears when I was coming back,  but when I got in, I realised I should have those fears because nobody remembers you from 10 years before. When I got back I was the new girl, whether I liked it or not,  and nobody wanted the new girl;  everybody had their position and they wanted it to stay that way. So,  it was  a struggle trying to get back in  and I would go to some of the people I knew in the industry,  but a lot of them weren’t as relevant  as before  or they just weren’t doing it anymore.  I met Emem Isong, I met Lancelot  (Imasuen)  who I’ve known before and we got to do one or two m…

Read: Charly Boy - Religion/Mumugiousity’

Read this article written by Charly Boy below;

For starters, don't pick up the dictionary to lookup ‘Mumugiousity’, I coined it myself but you go soon grab weytin I wan yarn.

As I approach this topic I want to be careful so readers don't get the whole essence of this write up, twisted. E no dey hard some people. Religion is a touchy subject for a lot of people and in my household it is generally not considered "polite conversation."

For some, an attack on religion is an attack on their god or gods. I only wish to put down certain points or aspects of organized religion I’m not comfortable with, I am not questioning anyone's belief in a personal god.

Clarion Chukwurah- 'Nigerian entertainers are going into politics for money'

Recently entertainment personalities started decamping from entertainment to politics...lolz. They sure have their reasons which may be good abi? Such stars as 9ice, Desmond Elliot, Kate Henshaw, Kenneth Okonkwo. Tony Tetuila etc are a few of Nigerian entertainers who have gone into politics. Well, the bad news is that actress Clarion Chukwurah thinks its because of money. She spoke exclusively to Punch, and this is what she said below;

"The motive of those who are embracing partisan politics is purely monetary. Let us call a spade a spade. If you tell me that you want to go into politics to serve the people, I would want to look at your record first. I want to see what you have done to better the lives of the people in your immediate community. How many boreholes have you sunk in the community? How many hours of community service have you given for free over the last four or five years? How well are you known as somebody who yearns for improvement in social development?”

New generation artistes are known to show off their wealth on the social media, what is your take on that?
2Face-and-Wizkid-sharing-HeFor me it’s a matter of choice. It’s a matter of what makes you happy. Some people have it and they don’t care to show it and some just do it so that people will think they have it. Some people do it so that armed robbers will come and visit them?

Nigeria‬ Warns South Africa Over Seized $5.7 Million Arms Money

Well, its not all smiles between Jacob Zuma the South African President and his Nigerian counterpart Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. The first 9.3 million dollars seized another 5.7 million seized, that must be enough to raise an eyebrow.... So it is no longer funny. In recent reaction to what appears a potential diplomatic spat between the two countries, Nigeria and South Africa.... the Nigerian government denied the second transaction was illegal and has reminded South Africa of how Nigeria has provided a beneficial environment for South African companies like MTN, DSTV and a host of others to do business unhindered. The Nigerian government is no doubt unhappy with the seizure of its funds by the South African government.

There might be legal  or other forms of sanction that the Nigerian government might be forced to take against the South African government if the issue concerning the seized funds goes on unresolved between the two leading African country.
