UEFA BANS ARSENE WENGER FOR IMPROPER CONDUCT

UEFA, the administrative body for football in Europe has banned Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger for his uncomplimentary remarks about referee Damir Skomina during Arsenal's Champions League game with AC Milan on 6th March 2012.

This will be the third time the French would be picking a ban. Asides that, the coach who has been suspended from carrying out his managerial duties for the next three European games will pay a fine of €40,000 (£33,000).

The match which ended 3-0 didn't favour the club as they were knocked out 4-3 on aggregate, Wenger couldn't hide his feelings either, "I was not happy with the referee tonight because I felt he gave many free-kicks in the middle of the park."

Speaking before the news was made public, the 63 year-old ex footballer said, "If I am suspended then it is not justified and I will appeal straight away. I believe that they have transformed UEFA competition referees to be untouchable icons, where you cannot even have a word.

"The only thing they understand after the game is the report. I believe that when you have 25 years consecutively in Europe you can still ask the referee that you can have some discussion with him. It is very difficult to understand."

Arsenal is expected to appeal the ban/fine within 3 days.

ALL FOR A 13 YEAR OLD (CONT'D)

Hello Readers, here is the concluding part of the story I started on monday, if you're reading this for the first time, check my archive (scroll down the left side of this blog) for the beginning of the story. Enjoy!!



Doctor Joshua couldn't remove her gaze on the frail girl, the white mask over her nose and the system beside her. How could she have done this to herself? He wondered aloud. Dr Aina walked briskly to his side.

'what's sup Joshua, thought you were going home."
"I just can't leave like that."
While they were still talking, a nurse came to take the little girl's blood sample for laboratory investigation.
An hour later, a middle-aged woman rushed in.
 
"Good afternoon sir. Pls my daughter was rushed here about four hours ago, pls may I see her"
Dr Aina gave her a long stare, "So you are Debrah's mother".

"Yes I am"

"Hmmmmm!" He sighed. "She's in a critical condition now, as a matter of fact, she's on oxygen and needs a lot of observation, so you may just have to hang around".


At about 9pm, Dor Josh drove into the hospital

"How far Dr Yemi Aina?" He said staring at debrah

"She should come round anytime soon. The blood sample results are here and there are improvement signs. Meanwhile her mother is here, she's waiting for her outside"

"Her mother? Anyways I don't have time for that now" he took a seat and sighed, "I've not been able to do anything reasonable since I got home, my mind has been here".








Debrah's face was springing out water, Dr Joshua's voice was loud and clear.

"What is wrong with you? You know quite clear that DIABETIC patients don't take sugary things. Do you want to kill yourself? Answer me? You would have gone, gone a long time if not for God's intervention, you were not supposed to touch the cheapest biscuit, what were you doing with 2 bottles of coke?

"It's okay Joshua"

"Aina this is painful, how many patients do I really care for this much. I took interest in her because she has an aweful sickness at the age of 13. The other time I sent her to the laboratory to get her results only for her to forge the result and bring it back to me, I spoke to her, I cautioned and pleaded with her. What else does she want me to do? Now she went to school to take not even a sip, two bottles of coke just because she was tired of living and her friends were accusing her of being HIV positive, I told you countless time, don't listen to them."

'It's still alright Joshua, we can't really blame her."

"I'm sorry sir. Dr Aina please help me beg him. I won't do it again." Debrah was barely audible, the tears poured in.

Her mother rushed in

"Please who is the doctor that has been footing her bills..."
"Woman, I am so disappointed in you, you call yourself a mother and you're acting this way. What has she done to deserve a cold attitude from you. Your 13 year-old daughter is diabetic and the least you could do is to be so harsh and unconcerned, I'm even surprised you're here" he hissed loud.

"It's not my fault sir. It was this same sickness that claimed his father's life at 38. And I have just three of them, that's why?...

'That's why what? That's why you left her to her fate?? He snapped. "To be miserable and die afterwards?"



The woman was mute. She cleaned her wet face with the back of her hand as he spoke.

'This girl needs love and attention. She needs your care. How can she be coming for check ups all alone? Why?

It's bad enough that she has this ailment at this age but a cold attitude from her mother will kill her in no time"
Turning to Debrah, "this would be the last time I'll tell you this, if you don't change, I'll hands off your case".
'I won't do it again I promise. Thank you Dr Josh, Thank you Dr Aina, I love you so much mum. Where are my siblings....." She stared at the ceiling and closed her eyes afterwards.

She was gone.





Based on a True Life Story.

INTERVIEW: GABRIEL AFOLAYAN SPEAKS AT LENGTH ON HIS MUSIC CAREER

It is no longer news that seasoned actor Gabriel Afolayan, son of late film maker Adeyemi Afolayan and brother to accomplished actors, Kunle and Aremu Afolayan is dipping his hand into another pie, which is music.
In this interview, the debutante who is chanelling every faction of his talents into becoming a well-rounded artiste and who isn't cowed by the presence of other established or upcoming artistes spoke at length about his sojourn into music amongst other issues.









1) Gabriel Afolayan is very successful in the acting terrain, what's driving you into music?
Its strictly passion and music appreciation that is driving me on into the arena.

2) What kind of music do you do?
I do African soul

3) Your sizzling hot single, 'Kokoro Ife' is generating a lot of buzz everywhere, how do you feel about this?
I feel so happy and its surprising.
Never thought it would be this accepted, there's this negative buzz about actors diversifying into music because they don't get much roles again and thus have to supplement their earnings with music. No! The case is different, I'm just passionate about music and seeing this level of appreciation makes want to put in more efforts on my material.

3) Kokoro Ife is purely a love song. Is there any story behind the song or was it something you just stumbled on?
Kokoro ife is inspired by love and its complications. The continuous search for love and how we all rendezvous at the same spot. If you pay attention to the song you'll find out the mode at which the guy searched and still couldn't find, meaning you don't set out searching for love, it comes to you natural. And the typical lesson is "if you are opportuned to secure love, hold on to it and cherish it". This was said in the first 4 lines of the first verse. Basically Love is what the world seeks.

4) How long have you been into music?
Many people are not aware of the fact that I didn't just make the decision to do music, I've been on the journey for long.
I started music professionally in 1997.
I was signed as a back up singer to a studio called phynix in Ibadan, Oyo State.
And also I used to back up for one- man band then as well. I was born a Baptist, I've been a chorister way back. I also had a musical group while in the Univeristy (University of Ibadan).

5) Are you quitting the stage for music or is there going to be a balance?
No way! I won't. There is a balance already. I am under a management called studio 6 multimedia ltd; they have Studio 6 films and Studio 6 music. I'm like a complete brand to them and we have proper scheduling.

6) The music industry is highly competitive, how prepared are you for this?
I am prepared for the game cos I have something to offer in terms of my style. I listen to all kind of songs. But I appreciate soul music the most and it has inspired my style. That does not stop me from doing fast songs. It's just that I would want to be known for a particular movement in music. I know about the competitive nature of the music industry and I must say it's really making the game grow.

7) How far do you see yourself going in music?
The field is large enough. I am not coming in to drag or brag about anything. I am in music to bless the game with my uniqueness. And I know I will surely pull my own crowd/fans. I would surely contribute my quota. I'm going very far.

8) Any plans to release an album yet or feature other accomplished acts?
My album project is still in view but I'm just dropping singles for now. So I have just been recording songs at random. Although we've pencilled down some notable collaborations which I want to keep under wraps now.
9) Who is or are your influence(s) in the music industry.
A lot of them. I'm influenced by so many veteran musicians, talk of King Sunny Ade, Haruna Ishola, Ebenezer Obey, KWAM 1, Obesere, Victor Uwaifo, Segun Adewale, Admiral Adekunle, Sir Shina Peters, Kolawole Ayinla, Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, Pasuma, Kenny Kore, Samsong, Ty Bello, Tiwa Savage, W4, Wizkid, 2face, BankyW, Sound Sultan, Gt guitar man, Asa, Yinka Davies, Ego, Wande Coal, Lara George,Terry G and lots more. On the foreign scene I have Anthony Hamilton, Sisqo, Tyrese, Mario, Lauren Hill, Brandy, Smoky Robinson, Nat King Cole, Louis amstrong; the list is endless.

10) Considering the nature of your jobs now, how do you unwind?
The only time I unwind is when I want to sleep at night. The job itself is a whole lot of fun.

11) Has being the son of a film legend influenced you or opened doors for you in both careers?
It calls for more. Being from that source brings a lot of challenges. People pay attention to every detail, there are certain things they accept from others that they won't take from you, it goes beyond being basking in the infleunce of my late father, it is really challenging.

Download Gabriel's single, 'Kokoro Ife' (Love bug).

PHOTO OF THE DAY: MOTHER&CHILDREN KILL CROCODILE FOR SUPPER

Wonders shall never cease? Mother and children killing crocodile. How did they manage to tame this crocodile? How did they bring it to that slab alive?
The small girl is so brave. Pinning the (perhaps dead) creature's mouth down is one thing I can't imagine doing. What if it just rises up and bites her hand or do some silly stuffs? I wish I can get answers to these questions but trust me this is a big surprise! And kudos to these fearless people .

LIONEL MESSI MOVES TO FRENCH CLUB

Like what seriously went wrong with his contract in Barcelona? That was the question that came to my mind when I heard about this gist but never mind, its not the same Lionel Messi we all know.

A 16 year-old French footballer caused confusion in a Togo-based club when his name appeared on their database, subsequent research however revealed that he was merely bearing the same name with Argentina/Barcelona icon, lionel Messi.
However the Cameroonian mid-fielder who after putting up an impressive performance during a trial match organized in Angers club was offered a contract.
The club spokesman said: "We were shocked to learn that Lionel Messi had signed with Angers.
"We never get confused because even though our database now contains more than a million football players each player has his own person ID"

AMERICAN ACTRESS, KATE WINSLET RUES NUDE SCENES IN TITANIC MOVIE

American actress and Titanic star Kate Winslet regrets her nude scenes in the 1997 box office, Titanic.
The sultry actress during the premiere of the 3D version of the film which took place in London yesterday stated that she wasn't eager to watch the scenes where she disrobed for a portrait.

"I'm not going to look. I'll be in the bar by that point."
It is like being forced to go through a photo album of your former self for three and a half hours solidly. I haven't seen the whole film in a very long time but it's a whole different me and we look much younger and our acting was different, hopefully not as good as now."

It's ok darling. You were wonderful in other scenes.

ALL FOR A 13 YEAR-OLD

Hello Readers, this piece is a truelife story. Enjoy
"You wouldn't talk to anybody, you don't want to have anything to do with anybody, you are just a big snub. You will die soon". Roseline shouted. The 'die soon' jolted Debra out of her reverie, she stood up, ran to her direction and squeezed her shirt. 
 
"You don't have any right to judge me, you don't know what is going in my life, don't you ever talk to me like that, you unreasonable demon". Her voice was teary, she cleaned the mucus in her nose before reaching for her seat.
Roseline was sorry for that statement. She read pain and frustration in her eyes. So many thoughts ran through her mind as she smoothened her uniform. Should she apologise? Go to her and calmly ask what's wrong? She shrugged off and dashed out of the virtually empty classroom. She could care less.
Debrah's sobs were getting louder and louder, sensing the break time was almost over, she placed her head over her desk and continued crying.

"Maybe she's HIV positive or what else could explain her incessant visits to the laboratory" the three girls stopped to buy roasted corn which they divided equally and quickly feasted on.
"It is possible". Yetunde nodded. She's tired of life, she rejects everything you offer her; a bottle of coke, a piece of cake...."

"Even biscuits, I remember her throwing it back at me one time like that". Chika revealed
They flagged down a taxi and hurried in.
 
Back at the Federal Medical Centre, hot tears raced down Debrah's cheeks as she watched the Doctor write the usual report on a green form. He looked up to see her soaked face
 
"Don't do this to me Debrah. I might not have told you this before but those tears shatter me each time I see them." He paused, removed his glasses, wiped a drop of water at the edge of his eyes.
"What is still puzzling me is your mum's attitude. I havnt seen her here ever since you started coming for check ups. Why? This is too much for a 13 year-old girl like you". He sighed.

"But dear, you should be grateful that this isn't HIV/AIDS, nothing is impossible for God to do okay. I'm sure He will see you through this" He managed to flash a smile.
Debrah was too weak to return the smile, "Forget about my mum Doc, let me quickly rush to the laboratory..." She stood up

" No." He removed his eye glasses again. "Tell me what I don't know. Is she your real mother"
Debrah nodded. "I'm her replica. the resemblance is striking. She just vowed never to have anything to do with me ever since she learnt of my ailment, she told me to give her a space and let her focus on my younger ones. Don't worry, Doc, I would take care of myself"

"At age 13? What does she want you to do? This is preposterous"
 
Doctor Josh was about kicking the engine of his car and driving out of the hospital premises when he saw a nurse rushed towards her
"What is it" he wound down the glass of his car
" Debrah was rushed in now, right now she's placed on oxygen, her friends said she collapsed after taking 2 bottles of coke"
"Oh My God! This is unbelievable?"
He jumped out of the car weeping profusely.

PHOTOS-OF-THE-DAY: A CASE OF TWO FUNNY BRIDES

Like seriously? Who was she giving the middle finger? Toasters? oh No, they apparently saw her in a wedding dress. An unwanted friend/visitor who probably came to spite her? Most likely! But why would anyone act like that on her VIP occasion.
Whoever made her frown this much didn't try. Don't worry, you're finer and better than them.

This second picture I honestly don't understand. I got so many funny pings last night when I used it as my display picture. Unfortunately I couldn't give a reasonable answer to the questions pouring in.
'Why is her face like that? What happened?'
Seriously let's just pretend someone close to her dropped a bombshell (polluted the air). Figure out who that could be.

CORONER REVEALS MAIN CAUSE OF WHITNEY HOUSTON'S DEATH

After weeks of speculations on what killed multiple Grammy-winning legend Whitney Houston on February 11, 2012, Los Angeles County Coroner Office recently revealed that heart disease and recent cocaine use contributed to the death of the 48 year-old singer.
According to a statement released, the mother of one whose drug use affected her voice to a large extent likely had some heart attack which made her slip into the tub.
Though other drugs were found in her system, but they did not contribute to her death.
A coroner claimed Houston used cocaine "immediately prior to her collapse" -- but investigators who arrived on the scene found no traces of cocaine or any other illegal drug.
That was because "an individual" removed all traces of cocaine from the room before authorities arrived the person was the same one who supplied the drug to Houston.


Houston who was buried in New Jersey a week after her death willed all her assets to her 19 year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina.
