Sex, Nudity and Half of a Yellow Sun

Article written by Samuel Olatunji. Read and share your thoughts on the points he raised
Over the weekend in Lagos, Oscar nominee and BAFTA award winner, Chiwetel Ejiofor laid claim to the fact that Half of a Yellow Sun is not just a Nigerian story but an international story which has its implications and relevance across the world. The movie which was centered on love could not have left the original plot out which talks about the Biafran war. 
By now you probably have heard of Half of a Yellow Sun, but no one has told you about the nudity and sex scenes, by the way it was artistically done. Thandie Newton came out of the bath tub naked with her two boobs standing at alert, Chiwetel and Thandie Newton had sex and there was another sex scene in the movie, again all were artistically done. The question is, can Nigerian actors ever go all the way in movies like these people did (remember Chiwetel and Lupita in 12 Years a Slave)?

Parents, school principal say no girl was rescued in Chibok

Yesterday evening we all heard the happy news that over a hundred secondary school girls abducted on Monday evening at Government Girls Secondary School Chibok had been freed by the military. But unfortunately this information is not true.

Parents of the missing girls, the principal of the school and Borno state governor told reporters this morning that the military lied about the rescue operation as the girls were still missing.

Below is what the principal of the school, Mrs Asabe Kwambura, told Premium Times this morning:
"There is nothing in the military statement that is true about our abducted girls. Up till now we are still waiting and praying for the safe return of the students; all I know is that we have only 14 of them, and the security people especially the Vigilante and the well meaning volunteers of Gwoza are still out searching for them. The military people too are in the bush searching. So we have not received any information that they have gotten the students yet. So let it be clear that all the information passed on the media by the military concerning 107 girls is not true. I, as the principal did not tell any body any figure on released students other than what our Governor, His Excellency Kashim Shettima had informed the media.” Continue...

Man so petrified of the Kardashians that the sight of them makes him vomit

Dear LIB readers: How do I return my engagement ring?

From a female LIB reader
Just four months after I started dating this guy (we began dating in November 2013) he proposed to me on valentine's day in front of his friends and his two sisters during a mutual friend's val birthday party. I couldn't believe he proposed so fast and I honestly wasn't expecting it. But because he proposed in front of all those people including his family I couldn't say no and embarrass him so I accepted his ring. But I have no intention of marrying this man. Not only am I seeing someone else, he's just not my type but please do not ask me why I'm dating him. I have my reasons. It's been two months since we got engaged and I've been looking for ways to return the ring. How do I go about it? Please if you have no reasonable thing to say, keep your opinion to yourself. Only mature responses please
