Naomi Campbell has some thoughts on people who got famous on Instagram

Quite a number of people have become quite famous via social media, with no talent, no skill, not even a sex tape...:-). In the olden days, it took a lot for you to be famous, to be called a supermodel. You must put a lot of hard work and years in the business, then there's talent, beauty and personality. But not these days, not with the advent of social media. All you need is a lot of following and you're one of the 'Instagirls' - a term addressed on the September issue of Vogue starring 9 supermodels with millions of followers. Speaking about the new phenomenon on the The Meredith Viera Show this week, Naomi Campbell, who's been in the business for nearly 30 years, said;
"It's amazing. I mean, good luck to them. I just feel my generation of women, like Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Claudia Schiffer, we had to earn our stripes and take our stepping stones to get to where we have gotten, to accomplish what we have achieved to this date. I kind of feel like, 'My God, we've worked so hard and we are still working at it, then it just comes like that for them.' But I sometimes believe easy come, easy go. So I am actually grateful for the way I had my career. I wouldn't want it any other way."

Soludo's self serving article on Economic management is deficit in facts, logic & honor - Okonjo-Iweala

Coordinating Minister for the Economy and Minister of Finance Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has responded to former CBN governor Charles Soludo's article titled Buhari Vs Jonathan: Beyond the election, where he criticized the presidential economic team (read here). NOI's response below...
1. For anyone who has not read Professor Charles Soludo’s article on January 25 2015, I would encourage them to do so. It is littered with abusive and unbecoming language. It shows how an embittered loser in the Nigerian political space can get so derailed that they commit intellectual harakiri by deliberately misquoting economic facts and maliciously turning statistics on their head to justify a hatchet job. We hope all the intellectuals in the international circles in which Professor Soludo has told us he flies around in will read what a Professor of Economics has chosen to do with his intellect.

When God sends me my husband, he will come, but until then, I’m OK with it just being with me." Continue

Dear LIB readers - My boss is making me uncomfortable

From a female LIB reader
I am a corps member serving in Yenagoa. I have a work problem and it's with my immediate boss. He calls me "baby" or "my baby" or "my darling". He uses my name and surname as his password. He rubs my shoulders and looks at me in a lecherous way. When he started offering me money, I refused but he covered up and said he gives me because of the amount of workload I carry and that I shouldn't refuse again when he does. He offers me lifts and I refuse with the excuse that I have somewhere else to go, not home. But the shocker is that recently, he told me he is falling in love with me and that I shouldn't be scared.

Sold by their own families for £50k: Tanzania's albinos hacked apart by witchdoctors who believe their body parts 'bring luck'

Tanzania has the highest number of killings and attacks of albinos in Africa and trade in body parts of the special people is driven by belief that they bring luck and wealth.

From UK Daily Mail 
Tanzania's albinos are being 'hunted down like animals' as greed for money and influence drives families to turn on their own loved ones in a trade allegedly fuelled by some of the country's most powerful people. It is believed albino body parts will bring a person wealth, or luck - and for that, people are willing to pay as much as $3,000 or $4,000 for a limb, or as much as $75,000 - about £50,000 - for the 'full set', a whole body.

Rapper Eve talks having a back-up/reserve boyfriend when you're in a relationship

If you get to a certain age, especially after you hit 30, most women start to think about settling down. Many people will tell you that at that age, you must have your back up/reserve guy, in case the man you're with disappoints you. The reserve guy is not necessarily someone you are dating or even sleeping with, he's just someone that really likes you but instead of telling him you're not available, you lead him on, keep him interested until your main man marries you. He's like our 'side man'...:-)

Anyway, rapper Eve sat down with Huffington Post live where she talked about the pressure to marry, having her reserve man and how she broke it the news of her engagement to him. Read after the cut...
