It's a superb one. The colour combination is not your regular type. It stays simple but unique. Ex Miss World and supermodel, Agbani Darego's plunging neck-line silver dress, hairdo, nude make up prettify the cover more!
Tinsel star, Chris Attoh did justice to the cover too. The gentleman's spotted in a grey blazer, over a white shirt and a brown suede tie. Really nice

THE KARDASHIANS MAY BE SUED OVER TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT
From reality show, clothing line, eyewear and now to a make-up line. The Kardashians no doubt are doing well for themselves (even though I don't know how much all those are raking in). But there's a small snag in their latest venture- Kroma make-up.
A man named Michael Rey, the co-owner of a certain Chroma Makeup in Beverly Hills is mad at them and he isn't mincing his words. Their offence? The reality show stars are infringing on his trade name; Chroma. Even though the first letters of the controversial name are not the same.
According to him, it took 12 years to build his business and get an A-list clientele, he isn't going to watch the Kardashians cheapen his products, cause confusion in the marketplace and probably soil all he's laboured for. Whew!
Although he's not yet queried the Khardashians, he's fully prepared to take legal actions against them if they don't change the name. He's already writing letters to his customers that Chroma is not associated with the Khardashian's "low-budget cosmetic products".
The importance of drama in this life can never ever be over emphasized. It's all been drama for the Ksolos.
Check out this cycle: Ksolo got married. Ksolo was accused of beating his wife. Ksolo denied it. Ksolo and his wife told media it was all publicity stunt. Ksolo's wife gives birth. Ksolo denies paternity.....(To be continued) And you don't consider this drama?
Anyways, Ksolo's management recently issued out a warning to bloggers/ writers to always confirm their news before publishing (that's important). Here's the statement.
'We as K-Solo's Management think it's should be official and professional for all media blogs and sites to confirm informations of our client tagged name K-SOLO before publishing.
The baby deliverer has a name and not to be tagged as K-Solo's wife in any sort of claims or otherwise. If there's any news of such, pictures of K-Solo and the baby will be officially released and will be delivered rightly.
So for any further readdressing, please do not Tag K-Solo in sure news till further notice. Thanks. K-Solo's Management."
Ermmm! Sorry, we got so carried away with the news that we totally forgot to ask who the father of the child is.

Award-winning RnB acts, P Square have debunked rumours making rounds that they sacrificed their late mum for fame.
Their mum, Josephine Okoye, a minister of God who was highly instrumental to the duo's career success died sometime July after a heart surgery in India.
"We feel so bad to know that our mum is no more. But who are we to question the Almighty God. Traditionally, we are supposed to bury her and not the other way round. It is just that it happened so soon. Indeed, her death was a big blow to us.
"Then, it is too bad to hear that people are accusing us of being responsible for our mum's death. We are not blaming anybody. People are free to say what they want to say. We begin to wonder whether there is anything that will ever make us to go for the life of our beloved mother.
"Her life cannot be quantified in terms of money or fame. So, our answer to this question is that we have no hand in our mum's death. We only blame the death that snatched her away from us if not so, people won't be pointing accusing fingers at us. She died after a brief illness." They explained via an interview.

Hopefully, he'll have great fun doing it too."

The name has reportedly been in use by Victoria Alexandra; a US-based wedding planner since 2009 and protected by the US Patent and Trademark Office.

Some time ago, last week or so, there was this news linking Nollywood actor Jim Iyke and a certain Chantelle Nkechi Benson, a UK-based lawyer. An 11 year-old son is allegedly the product of the affair which they had as far back as when the former was an undergraduate.
The actor released a statement via his publicist, Mitch Ngaman to clear the air
"Jim Iyke is aware of the viral story currently making the headlines and wishes to state that this is not the first time that issues of this nature have arisen. Friends and fans who follow his activities closely will recall a number of occasions in the past when baseless claims of paternity and even marriage were made.
"Nonetheless, as a responsible man, he is always disposed to verify any such development(s) brought to his attention and when any satisfactory outcome has been ascertained, the general public will be duly informed without ambiguity. The only specifics at the present time is that at the age of 22yrs-23yrs old he dated for a brief period the lady at the center of the story who subsequently left Nigeria for the UK.
"There had been no contact between them ever since and by implication no linkling of the existence of a living product of that encounter. Since this is more about an innocent child than the star himself we advise caution and respect for privacy.''
Sometimes, featuring on a track can either make or break your career as an artiste. In Naeto C's case, he has had a couple of successful days in the studio, but teaming up with Morachi on this new song raises a question for our panelist.
Find out now!We found an easy and stress-free link
Multiple Grammy and Brit award-winner, Adele Adkins and her 38 year-old charity worker boyfriend Simon Konecki are now parents to a beautiful boy (even though I havn't seen the picture, he should be beautiful).
The 24 year-old Someone Like You singer who delivered the baby on friday announced her pregnancy 4 months ago.
"I'm delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we're over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx."
The couple confirmed their relationship in January.
