No girl can break our hearts...hmnn!

Pint-sized actors, Chinedu Ikedieze (Aki) and Osita Iheme (Pawpaw) are among the eminent personalities that graced the investiture ceremony of Austin Eneduwa-George as president of the Rotary Club of Maryland, over the weekend.

The Nollywood actors, who described Austin as a complete gentleman and good friend, stated that the honour bestowed on him is long overdue, considering his numerous assistance to humanity.

Nollywood star actors, Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme have declared that no girl can break their hearts even as they said they have not jilted any girl.

Speaking in an interview with, the duo admitted having a number of female admirers and they both declared that no girl can break their hearts as they have not jilted any girl before. Both also denied dating any girl. Below is tiny bit from the interview.

Do you think women love you because of your money?Osita: Women? I don’t understand. You can never say somebody likes you because of money. I know that I have fans who love my works and not because of my money.

When you started in Nollywood, what was the fee like?Osita: The fee started with N6, 000. It was my first movie, Cold Blood. Then, it was big money for me. From then, I started moving to hundred, two hundred, three hundred, one million, N1.5 million. I kept moving, you know. It varies. It depends on the relationship you have with anybody that is contracting you.

Should we then say you are comfortable?Osita: Yeah. I am comfortable.

Very rich?
Osita: I am comfortable. I am able to take care of my needs and self.

There is a kind of burst they said Nollywood is going through. How is it affecting you?Osita: That is exactly what I am saying. It is affecting us because, sometimes, when you go out there, to talk something about Nollywood, people come back to say that there are many problems in Nollywood. It is affecting us because our fans are yearning to see more of our works, but they don’t know that our home is on fire. Something has been withholding some of the works we have been doing. We need to pass a message and we have not reached where we are going in Nollywood. So, if we start fighting now, I don’t think it will help us to forge ahead.

What do you do with the money you have been making?Osita: We do a lot of things with it. We also have a foundation, where we put our money. It is called Aki and Pawpaw Child Care Foundation. We take care of the underprivileged kids.

Teach us how to manage money?
Osita: We are different individuals. People have many different ways they can manage their money. Depending on what they like and what they don’t. Some people have taste for cars. They can buy as many as 30 cars, after building their house. It depends.

How many cars do you have?Osita: Actually, if I tell you I don’t have, you will not believe it. So, the issue of the car is not the problem. I can tell you to keep the money very well, go into properties, you know, investments. My own experience is going into shares, properties, and a lot of things. We also put our money into helping people. Because the best investment you can do is investing in human beings.

Were you affected by the crash of the stock market?Osita: Yes, of course. I was affected.

Who made you invest in it?Osita: Nobody, I invested myself. I don’t need somebody to take us to the stock market.

How much did you lose?Osita: Don’t worry. You are not going to pay me. If you were going to pay me, I would tell you how much I lost.

Chinedu: It was very unfortunate. Actually, it affected a lot of people, including me, and him too. Every business is a risk, even our lives. We keep walking and working. So, that is the thing. As he said, I’ll advise whoever that has made some money to invest properly. I invested into real estate, shares and the human investments. I think I have like four graduates in my house. And I trained all of them, plus other people, nieces, cousins and some other people from my community. I am the first son. I used to have four brothers, but I lost one on May 31, this year.

What happened?Chinedu: I don’t know. They said brief illness. What you asked was exactly what I asked when they called me that he was dead. I was in South Africa. It was very unfortunate. He was the last-born and the last boy. In fact, we travelled on the 27th. Two days before then, he called me to say that he was having headache. I advised him to meet our family doctor. And the next day, I sent him some money. That was it. Until May 31, we were talking. They called me. That was it. He was approaching 20.

Your parents are back home in the East?Chinedu: Yeah. They live in Aba.

What have you done for them?Chinedu: A lot

Chinedu: What do you expect me to do for them?

Did you buy them a car?
Chinedu: They are comfortable.

You did not buy them a car or build them a house?Chinedu: They never said so.

Must they say so before you do it for them?Chinedu: They never complained that they don’t have a car.

Who are your parents?Chinedu: Mr. and Mrs. Ikedieze Ogbonnaya

What does Mr. Ogbonnaya do?Chinedu: He is a businessman based in Aba and deals in stationery.

What values did you take from your father?
Chinedu: I am happy I have parents like them. They inculcated this discipline in me. They made me understand I should value my norms of the society. From them, I got to understand that culture is very unique. When I see my elder, I should greet them. And when I see a pen falls down, I should pick it up and give to my elder. I should respect my elders and even age mates. I grew up with them. I internalized everything they said.

Whatever thing I do, not minding my size, if I go out of tune, my mother will smack me then. And those things helped me a lot. So, they never pampered me because I was the smallest or something like that. They never gave me that opportunity. If I made a mistake, they beat me and I loved that. Now, I have come to remember that. If they hadn’t done that, may be now, it would have affected me. That is why I can take care of them. My parents can count on me. That is it. They inculcated discipline in me.

What about your mother?Chinedu: The same applies to her. She was into confectioneries before she changed.

What about your parents?Osita: My father is dead. He died in 1990.

What is your memory of him?Osita: I was too small when he died. I didn’t stay too close to him a lot, because I was small when he died. He was a great father. He taught me how to be a good boy.

So, you were really brought up by your mother?Osita: Yes. After our father died. My mum was doing it all by herself. You know what it is without a husband. But she made sure that all of us became somebody. We are five. I am the last.

That is to say that your mother is a little bit old?
Osita: Yeah. She is 60 something.

What have you done for her that makes you glad?Osita: Anything she needs, I make sure I do it for her.

You know at 60 something your mother will be looking for a grand child?Osita: Yeah. She has a grandchild, but not from me. Of course, she will get it.

How soon?Osita: Soon. By God’s grace!

Chinedu, as the first son, won’t your parents be looking up to you for a grandchild?
Chinedu: They are not complaining. I am a guy, you know. I have a sister who will give them a grandchild.

You are from Uzuakoli, and you know what a grandchild means to us.Chinedu: My mother has a grandchild.

I mean one from you.Chinedu: There is no problem. I said when the time comes, you will know. I can call you tomorrow and say, ‘You see, my mother just had a grand child.’ Well, that is the thing. I think we were talking about what values they were able to inculcate in us. If we were not too responsible, I don’t think a cellular phone manufacturing company in South Africa will just see us and then decide to partner us. Last time we went to South Africa, we were just walking and, I think they saw the huge followership. And they inquired about us.

They went through our status and they found out that, yes, they could deal with these people. If we had had poor upbringing, I think that somehow, it would have been affecting us. If you look round the industry, some of them who had poor upbringing, it is really affecting them. Today, we are doing something with AG Cellular Phone. It is an indigenous phone manufacturing company in South Africa, owned by a Jewish South African. They are using Aki and Pawpaw pre-loaded contents in their phones. So, it is going to be AG Cellular-Aki-and-Pawpaw range. They are going to have like three, four ranges of phones, which will have our copyrighted videos, the ones we invented, not from any film, our pictures as their wall papers and our voices as their ring tones. So, very soon it is going to hit the Nigeria market. By the grace of God, this September, we will be launching it in Nigeria.

Do you have any brand you represent in Nigeria?Chinedu: Yeah. OK Foods. We even did Apple 3 in Ghana. We have another one we will endorse soonest. When we finish whatever is binding, we will let you know.

Managing popularity is a bit of a challenge. How are you managing your brand?
Chinedu: We have a team, a management team. I think they are doing the work responsibly well.
Osita: Still on the values you were asking of. Because we have good upbringing, we understand each other. We have management that also helps us keep the brand together.

If I want you to endorse my brand, what does it take?Osita: It depends on the kind of brand you want us to endorse.

The Sun, for instance?Osita: The Sun! Then we will discuss that.

Do you pay us or we will pay you?Osita: No. You will pay me.

The deal with AG Cellular, how much is it worth?Chinedu: It is big.
Osita: Yeah. It is big. We can’t really say exactly.

Stars do disclose the worth of their deals?Osita: Their deal is different from our deal. They have a particular price that their deal is worth. But our own is different.

Chinedu: Ours come monthly.
Osita: It comes monthly and we are into partnership with AG Cellular. So, whatever comes…
Chinedu: …We have a percentage.

Do you live together in the same house?Osita: Yes, we live together.

Do you own the house?Osita: Yeah. We own the house.

Is it in Lagos here?Chinedu: Before the end of next month, we will be through with the papers.

Several adult Nigerians are facing a lot of problems in the country.Osita: Like?

Like Boko Haram! So, what is your take on what happened in the North?Chinedu: If you ask me, I think I would say, I thought Nigeria…if you want to measure our academic values, we were 65-67 per cent higher. But with what just happened, I think we are like 40 something per cent lower. Yeah! I mean, I can’t understand. I don’t know whether it was premeditated by their religious beliefs or what. I mean, how on earth can a group of people say that women should not get any education. In fact, that they don’t need even western education; that it is not useful to them. And we are still living in the same port we call a country. It is too appalling, honestly.

What is your view on what is happening in your part of the country? The kidnapping?
Chinedu, when last did you visit home? You are afraid, eh? ‘Make yawah no go gas you, abi’

Who are the people doing this kidnapping?
Osita: People who don’t have anything to do. They are frustrated. No jobs; nothing to do; no employment; there is nothing to write home about. Most of them who do not have the fear of God inside them, no good upbringing; there is nothing else they can do. So, they go into kidnapping, causing riots and a lot of things.

When you are going to people now, you will have to go with security, because, they can kidnap you.Osita: They will not kidnap me. God is my security.

Have you ever encountered armed robbers?Osita: I am not praying for them. There was a time we met them on the road, but they did not recognize us, in Lagos here.

What advice do you have for the governors of the states where kidnapping is taking place? Osita: First of all, enough security. Then, they should try as much as possible to provide employment. People need to be doing something so that their attention will be removed from all those evil things.

How many films have you made so far?
Chinedu: They are in the region of 70 films. Nothing less than that.

Do you consider going into politics?Chinedu: No. No. No. No. Well, for now I said no.

But the governor of California did it.Chinedu: Those things are not achievable in this country.

Chinedu: Yeah. They are not achievable because the government of today is em.. forget it before they come and carry me from house. The thing is that the policy that is obtainable in America is not obtainable here. They have open and free policy and we don’t adopt that here. I mean we don’t practise it. You know what I mean by open and free policy. Look at Obama’s election and his victory and every thing. It was transparent. It can never happen here. You can’t have something like this in Nigeria.
Osita: Somebody will lose an election and he will still be there for three years. He keeps going to court.

Is it because of our electoral system?
Osita: Yeah. It is bad. It is either you beat them or you join them. Somebody who is not ready to do what they do, I don’t think you will be able to compete with them.

What is the way out for us if everybody is throwing in the towel?
Osita: No, it is the government. Everybody is not throwing in the towel. The government should provide the enabling environment for all of us. If the country is okay, we will know where to fit in. Let’s say we have steady power supply. We have a lot of things you can start doing in the country.

Who are your heroes?
Osita: Well, there are a lot of people I look up to, but I have some people who I can say inspired me. Somebody like Richard Mofe-Damijo inspired me. There are other people also that I look up to.

Who are your favourite female actresses?
Osita: A lot of them. They are good. If I keep mentioning them, I can mention up to 20. Maybe, I will mention some and forget some. People like Onyeka Onwenu; she is good; Stella Damasus, Edith Jane-Azu, a lot of them. Bimbo Akintola. They are all good.

Chinedu: You mean my role models in the industry? I admire a lot of them; those that are doing good work, I admire them. The fact is that I learn from anybody. I learn from even a 10-year-old boy. Because once you do something and it strikes my mind, it comes and I place it. I can’t really tell you now that this person is my role model apart from God. Because they are not perfect. Some day they will wither like the ordinary grass. So, I look up to God. I just admire them. I learn one or two things from them. So, I can’t just tell you that this person or that person is it.

What do you think of Genevieve?
Osita: Genevieve is a good actress.

What of Stella Damasus?
Chinedu: Yeah. She is equally good.

Ini Edo?
Chinedu: She is good too.

What of Mercy Johnson?
Chinedu: She is equally good.

Can you marry an actress?
Chinedu: I didn’t say so. I have never thought about it.

But what if it happens that the person you want to marry is an actress?Chinedu: It has not crossed my mind whether it will happen like that.
Osita: Why not? They are human beings.

Chinedu: Until I tell myself that yes, I want to. But for now it is not on my mind.
Osita: Yeah. I can marry an actress.

Is there any one of them that you admire now?Osita: No.

Of all the beautiful girls in Nollywood, none of them interests you?Osita: The fact is that I am not thinking of any now.
Chinedu: Yeah.
Osita: As I said before, if I am ready God will direct me to who choose. It can be any one. It can be an actress.

What doors has acting opened for you?Chinedu: A lot of doors. For you to know me today is because I am acting; for me to be in The Sun today is because I am acting. For Yar’Adua to know me today is because I am acting. He doesn’t know my brother.

Have you suffered heartbreak ever in your life?Osita: No.
Chinedu: No. Me? ‘Girl fit break my heart?’

Have you ever broken a lady’s heart?Chinedu: Why will we break people’s hearts?
Osita: There is something I want to ask. The Sun, whenever it comes out, it is always the bomb, I mean the headline! Why?

It is our own strategy. If you don’t come out with a bang, the readers won’t even take your paper.Osita: Among the politicians, do you have a favourite?

Who?Osita: I mean, The Sun.

In The Sun, we don’t have a favourite politician. Do you like the PDP?
Osita: PDP?

Yes.Osita: No, I don’t like any party. I like people involved in the parties.

Who do you like among them?Osita: The politicians? I have to think about it. I can’t really answer it now.

Have you met Governor OhakimOsita: Yes.

What do you think of him?Osita: As a person or as a politician? You know, there are characters you exhibit as a politician and the character you exhibit as a person. As a person, he is a kind person; he is good, caring, jovial, easy going. So, I don’t know the political side of him that much.

As a politician, what do you think of him?Osita: No, I don’t know much about that.

Do you know anybody in PPA?Osita: Of course, the governor of Abia State is from PPA. Our oga, OUK (Orji Uzor Kalu), is from PPA. I know a lot of PPA people. I know PDP people too.
What do you think of OUK (Kalu)?
Osita: He is good, caring and jovial, determined and hardworking. You can describe him more than me. He’s also our oga.

I don’t know him.
Osita: Okay, you don’t know him. As a journalist you go and research. You meet them one on one so you can know better.

What do you think of him as a politician?
Osita: I don’t know much about him as a politician.
Chinedu: Yeah. I know him as a person. And as a person, he is kind. OUK, our oga, is a nice person, easy going, very caring and like he said, he is equally jovial. He is a father to us.

You don’t like his style of politics?
Chinedu: I did not say so.

Have you met Ohakim?
Chinedu: I was sitting just few metres away from him. Yeah, he is a nice person. He is just a free man. He is easy going. He is equally kind; himself and the wife. They are kind people.

What about his politics?
Chinedu: Politics, politics, politics. I don’t know.

Do you also like PDP?
Chinedu: PDP, PPA. APGA, I am not into politics. I just like the individuals in those political parties.

If you have your way, what kind of political parties do you want to see in Nigeria?
Chinedu: Emm!
Osita: Pure democracy

You think what we have is an impure one?Chinedu: (Laughs)
Osita: Somebody will lose election and he will be there for three years and they are still talking about court. So, it is not the kind of electoral system I will like to see.

So, you are for an electoral reform?Osita: Yeah, of course. That one is not good. Somebody who lost an election will be there for three years. Meanwhile, you are still the governor or the president or whatever. You are still going to court. Meanwhile, you are ruling.
Chinedu: Ruling for four years.

What do you want to be remembered for?Chinedu: We want to leave a legacy that people will emulate. We want to make a statement in the sands of time. And that is our dream.

Do you guys play pranks in real life?Osita: What do you mean by pranks, the ones we play in the movies? That is in the movies. So, they should help us to do all those things we are begging government. Seven-point agenda is very important to us and the Niger Bridge. Even if we can fly, others can’t.

Which are the movies you like most?Chinedu: A lot of them. I don’t have any one as my favourite.

Which one was more tasking?Chinedu: So many of them. Jadon was equally tasking.

So much voodooism is going on in the movies. Is that really a reflection of who we are now?Chinedu: You are older than me. So, you are in a better position to know whether we imagine it or they happen really. I am just an actor. I interpret the role. But the thing is that, somehow, even though we have so many religions in Nigeria, people tend to put more effort on what they feel. What they imagine. They believe in fast religion where they got their problems solved quickly. They still have that in their minds there are so many other ways in which they can table their problems and it gets solved immediately.

That is why, somehow, a lot of people, even though they are Christians, still deviate. Because the Bible said, the way of God is not the way of man. The way of God is rough. It is not just smooth. You will have to put more efforts. You will have to be determined. You will have to be holy. People see that as a punishment. So, they want the one that will be easier for them. Yeah, quick solution. That’s it.

They said the Igbo are marginalizing the non-Igbo in Nollywood?Chinedu: The Igbo are marginalizing the non-Igbo? Where is Nollywood first of all?
We are in Lagos, right? And we do films in Lagos. Is Lagos Igboland or a Yorubaland?

Omotola said at some point they wanted her to adopt an Igbo name.Chinedu: Omotola. If she said that she lied. If there is any Yoruba artiste that has done so many Igbo movies, that is Omotola. I don’t see any reason, unless maybe they were just joking. Her name is Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde. How can somebody tease her to change her name? I mean, it is not just possible. Maybe, they just joked with her and they said maybe, some day you are going to have Nkechi attached to your name. If she’s talking about indigenous movies, that have indigenous contents, the only person that has been favoured that is not from Igboland. It’s Omotola. Maybe, she was joking or may be, you did not get her well. I have never done a Yoruba movie; she can’t speak Igbo, but she does Igbo films. Any movie that has Yoruba background, I have never done that. I have never done a movie where I answered Jide.

Dang! You are screwed!!!

Why are so many people full of shit?!
Nosey peckers, Prying Scumbags, Snoopy Dunderheads and Slum fools who fool themselves around nosing around you and what happens to you.
Why do some people rejoice over knowing what goes around in and out your world? They have made it their chore for the day….
Why do people you call friends come behind to stab you at your back?

This life is just crazy and full of shit!
The heart of this thing called Man…hmnnn …Who can tell?
Full of Skillful deceit, treacherously cunning, Tricky, Crafty,
It is more like a barren land for heap of dung… a kind of dung hill,
A repugnantly filthy or degraded place… that is what should best describe their heart…

I have vowed never to wonder why some people can never rise above their head, they can never make out anything good in life… because they are busy nosing around other people’s business and affairs.
Go nose around for all I care and go fill yourself with your own sh**t… you aint seen nothing yet.
Oh yes you… I MEAN YOU!!! Go figure….

A word of thanks to all my last Commentators, you are all very special and sweet. *winkazzzz*

Heart Bleed...

My heart bleeds….
And kept bleeding
On and on … I need relief
As they keep flashing back to me now…

Journeying thru love...

It is a strong feeling that should not be defined
Because its scope and entities is beyond human comprehension
It is rather an emotion... that nudge deep down and find its dwelling in the heart of all
With such great force that can never be neglected no matter how hard we all try...

Whatever brings about love... wherever it comes from
It has wrecked so many havocs and blessed so many of hearts
I think it will work for you just the way you want it too...
Either way... it leaves behind two things ...doom or joy that cannot be fathomed...
It's not in words spoken or can it be justified through actions

Maybe it goes beyond us all and works differently for different people...
Maybe what it means to you differ from what it means to me..
Maybe the way I judge it might just be different from the judgement in your own eyes..
But it does exist and we all know....

Agape, Emotional, Physical...maybe sexual.... All are types of love aint they?
But the most common is the boy meet girl type...
And it no doubt fit into all of the above...

And then the journey starts... from God knows where...
The trauma, the pain, the thrills and the booms of love...
But when well nursed it blooms and glows to the amazement and envy of all...
Though it breeds so many evil vices on its way..
...Envy, Strife, Pride, Jealousy and Rage...
The good ones too are not left behind
Joy, Peace and Tranquility...

But when love calls... where love breeds... what love does...hmnnn
No one can tell, no one can see, no one understands...
But it is a good thing to fall inlove.....

Sticky Stickers

I love stickers and I love to share every captivating and intriguing one I come across. This is one that still lingers and I can't help but post it for you all to dissolve in and meditate hard on. It speaks.....

This is my message to you all as you round up today.
We all have our ups and down and left and right like a naughty colleague of mine would say but hey... tomorrow is another day.
It's worth looking unto with great hope and aspirations.
Enjoy the rest of the evening and have a wonderful rest.



BLUSHERS: Application Techniques...

The use of blushers as a part of a woman’s cosmetic routine is pretty commonplace. It serves many purposes and, like most cosmetic applications, has a basis in nature for its use. The idea is that traditionally young women were often surprised as they were introduced to various aspects of the world – regardless of the eras in which they grew up.

Whenever a young woman experienced a new “first” she would often become shy, unsure and slightly embarrassed causing a physiological response and a rising of color in her cheeks. Older women, who were often inured to the way of life would rarely blush, thus the rosy cheeks became a sought after look. Women would pinch their cheeks in order to bring up a rosy glow, sometimes dabs of red berries or even droplets of blood would be rubbed into the skin for a pinkish appearance. As lip color took off, it was often put to multiple purposes with application to the lips, and a dot to each cheek to be rubbed on for a blushing effect.

For a Square Face: Soften the angles of your cheeks by applying the brighter color blush on the apples of the cheeks then sweep the blush towards your temples. This causes the eye to look up, taking away from the sharp angles of a square face shape. You can also contour to round your jaw line, by lightly dusting some blush from your chin to just below your ears.

For a Round Face: Apply blush to the area above the apples of your cheeks and blend slightly forward to thin the round face. Avoid getting the blush too close to your nose; this highlights the roundness of your cheeks.

For an Oval Face: "The perfect-shaped face needs little help from brush. But here are a few tips. For a natural look, apply blush onto the apples of your cheecks for a flushed, healthy glow."

For a Long Face: To create the illusion of width on a long face, apply blush to the apples of the cheeks and extend the blush outward towards your ears. Next, sweep your blush across the middle of your forehead and along your chin line. This effect will shorten your long face.

On the sack of 5 Naija Bank's CEOs

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has dismissed the Chief Executive Officers and other top management of five major Nigerian Banks. The banks are Intercontinental Bank, Union Bank, Afribank, Oceanic Bank and FinBank.

This appears to be the first step in a drastic plan to clean up Nigeria’s ailing banking industry.
The news comes at a time when the CBN governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, a risk management expert is preparing to sit down for a meeting with all the chairpersons and chief executives of all twenty three of Nigeria’s banks, later today in Lagos. Our sources say that no proxy representation is allowed at the meeting and this has forced many chairperson and CEOs, many of whom were on holiday abroad, to fly back to Nigeria in the last twenty four hours.

Due to the high sensitivity of the news, ST will brief you more later after due research and findings.

T.W.O: Not quitting!

Are they quitting music? Are they returning to TV full time? Just when speculation about their purported exit from music to TV was gaining grounds, Nigeria’s number one showbiz couple, Tunde and Wunmi Obe is back with a new song and they are definitely serving it up.
Titled “ZOMBIE”, Tunde Obe announced to surprised media practitioners this week that new song is for the love-sick folks because it is a song that has to do with two people who are in love and can’t do without each other.
The announcement did not only declare that the duos are back for good, it also brought to fore that those speculating that they had quit music for TV were very wrong.

“We have not left music. Music is our first love, we have been recording new song and in fact we are ready to roll, we are too legit to quit, we won’t do that to our fans, we owe it to them and we can’t leave them hanging” Wunmi Obe said as if to assure worrying fans who have besieged her with enquiries since news broke that the couple were calling it quits with music.
The new single was produced by Sean Keyz. The title of the forthcoming album has not been announced yet. According to their publicist Ayeni Adekunle, “All those other details will be known soon. All we just want to do now is let people know that contrary to widespread speculations, these couples we all love so much are not quitting music. Not now, not tomorrow, not ever.”

T.W.O started as lead singers in a campus band “Turning point” in the 80s, and got popular nationwide with their popular weekly television performance on the Charly Boy Show and Zoom tine.
Zombie is T.W.O’s first material since their monstrous hit “Mogbomoya” which established them as “A bridge between the old and the new school”.

And the Ultimate Man is....

The Last man standing

The Last lady standing.

“The past 20 days has been a period of upheaval for our contestants”, says Narrator, Femi Sowoolu as actions opens on the final day of this season’s Gulder Ultimate Search VI.The Narrator, aided by a montage of highlights of actions from past episodes of the show, traced the story of this year’s adventure into the jungle for Quest for the Horn of Valour.The recap traced the journey of the 10 Order of Heroes - Vivian Okafor, Elvis Abogu, Melvin Oduah, Adaeze Nwogu, Chisom Egemasi, Deborah Omekhigien, Olawale Akanbi, Uche Nwaezeakpu, Chuks Okorji and Oseyiomon Okoh – from the regional screenings to the rigorous national screening at the Sea School, Lagos.
The merriment and razzmatazz that heralded their emergence from among the thousands of youths that applied to participate in the show from across the country, the glitz, glamour and excitement of the Gala Nite in Lagos, they drove straight into the waiting arms of Osun State Governor, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola who treated to a lavish welcome dinner at the Government House in the ancient town of Osogbo, capital of Osun State.All these soon becomes a mirage as the Narrator said, “the joy of being chosen, the hotels and the glitz of Governor’s welcome soon fade into the background, giving way to the harshness of jungle existence, as the Search for The Horn of Valour becomes real.”Dropped in the middle of nowhere, the contestants’ first task inside the jungle was to find the spot where their shelter was to be built.
From the building of the first Palm-Boo Camp, to the shifting of the camp to another location in the jungle, to the tasks dished out to the contestants in this year’s Search which were tougher than ever before, according to the Narrator, viewers witnessed an adrenaline-filled show. From some life-threatening mud-wrestling to balancing on a tree stump for three hours, the 10 Hunters in the Order of Heroes of the Quest for the Horn of Valour were stretched to the limit of human endurance. This is not forgetting the days, sometimes running to weeks of starvation, eating raw or roasted food in most cases.Soon, the elements began to take their toll on the contestants and one after the other; they begin to fall by the way side. Adaeze Nwogu (popularly known as Ada) was the first victim claimed by the elements of Omodo forest. Indeed, her fellow Hunters were happy to see her go.
Deborah Omekhigien was still celebrating the eviction of Ada when the elements made a mince meal of her Quest when she failed a task. Also known as Debby, Debby was the second evictee of the Gulder Ultimate Search VI.Of course, how can viewers forget the predictable eviction of Wale Akanbi, who like Samuel in the second season of the Gulder Ultimate Search, lost the battle for the Ultimate Prize for negligence by losing the most sacred element of Gulder Ultimate Search, the Totem.We also relived the long overdue and anticipated eviction of Chuks Okorji, the handsome looking male contestant who was beaten to every task by his female counterparts.The beauty team work during the group tasks, the joy of victory, and the pain of failure during individual and group tasks, particularly, the events that led to the double eviction of Elvis Abogun and Oseyiomon Okoh, the pair who failed the popping ball group task.The emotion that played out during the eviction of diminutive Amazon of Palm-Boo Camp, Vivien refreshed viewers’ memories of an emotion-laden evening when Show Host/Presenter, Bob-Manuel Udokwu sent her packing from the competition at the Place of the Talking Drum for falling below standards during the day’s task. Scenes of her sobbing, crying and shedding tears will remain indelible in viewers’ minds.
And as it turned out, not even Chisom’s reserve “fuel” could save her as the Search for the Horn of Valour reaches its final stages. She fell to the elements while, our finalists, Melvin Oduah, Adaeze and, Uche Nwaezeakpu moved on to the last day of Search. Nevertheless, Bob and even fellow contestants commended her for her sterling performance and for emerging the season’s Last Girl Standing (LGS)Having to move camp again, Bob was kind enough to provide mobile tenets for the finalists to pass the night on the Hills of the Heavens waiting for the final Search.As they wait sunrise for the final Search, Melvin and Uche talked about their strategies. Uche says he’s going to work on his mindset to keep his focus at all times during the Search, while Melvin opined he would overcome his nervousness and remain focus to grab the Ultimate prize. The question remains, who among these two will be crowned the Ultimate Man this season.Bob too couldn’t wait to see who emerges the Ultimate Man by finding the Horn of Valour. “This is the day… Gentlemen, once again from me to you, good luck and may the best man wins.”
With this, the potential Ultimate Men set off in Search of the Horn of Valour in the Hills of the Heavens and its environs. The Search saw them traverse thick and deep jungle, steep and rocky slopes of the surrounding mountain range, clutching their water bottle, their only gadget for the journey.The fall upon clues upon clues, riddles after riddles, still they persist, confronting the elements on their resolve to find the Horn of Valour. At last they found the last part of the calabash map which led them back to the Hills of the Heaven.After a frantic and desperate Search that last for hours, Uche Uwaezeapu shouted from the distance: “Yes I found something!”

Bob asked his to unwrap the strange object in concealed in an ancient sack made from the bark of a tree. He did, out comes the Horn of Valour the Order of Hoeroes have been Searcing for in the last 21 days. By that discovery, Uche Uwaezeapu becomes the sixth successive Ultimate Man and winner of the Gulder Ultimate Search VI.Uche hails from Delta State. Uche says his biggest fear “is not getting rich. I must be rich. I dread the idea of not being rich in life.”For the 26 years old graduate of economics, his strongest characteristics is his “dress sense,” Uche craves a holiday in the Bahamas

Despite the controversies Kokomansion had stirred in the past few weeks on air, the "Playboy mansion" look alike reality Tv show has come to an end and the least expected of the kokolets barged the much coveted "Kokolet" title. (Or D'banj's
The reality show which have obviously failed in winning the hearts of naijas and the world as a whole has completed its term and even though so many negative things had been said about it, so many people still stayed glued to their HiTv to watch it without missing any bit throughout its term on
We all hope it gets better in years to come anyway - incase the koko master is considereing a second series.

I remembered having a tug of war with a paddy of mine wayback for calling me a "mamalet" instead of a "kokolet"
All attempts (From his end) to make me see reasons as to how Mamalets is better than kokolets proved abortive.

Well, me self no know o, shey una see werrin D'Banj go cause with im slangs dem... I tire o gaskia.
But whatever the case might be, I don't know the difference between Kokolets and Mamalets and I dont think I want to know anyway but from the words, I use to think Mamalets is an older and shaer (as in sha in yoruba language which conotes Expired) version of Kokolets not until I got this mail.

Leave their schedule wide-open and wait for a guy to call and make plans.
Make their own plans and nicely tell the guy to get in where he fits.

Want to control the man in their life.
Know that if he's truly hers, he doesn't need controlling.

Check you for not calling them.
Are too busy to realize you hadn't.

Are afraid to be alone.
Revel in it-using it as a time for personal growth.

Ignore the good guys.
Ignore the bad guys.

Make you come home.
Make you want to come home.

Worry about not being pretty and/or good enough for their man.
Know that they are pretty and/or good enough for any man.

Try to monopolize all their man's time (i.e., don't want him hanging with
his friends).
Realize that a lil' bit of space makes the 'together time' even more special-and goes to kick it with her own friends.

Think a guy crying is weak.
Offer their shoulder and a tissue.

Want to be spoiled and 'tell' their man so.
'Show' him and make him comfortable enough to reciprocate without fear
of losing his 'manhood'.

Get hurt by one man and make all men pay for it.
Know that that was just one man.

Fall in love and chase aimlessly after the object of their affection, ignoring
all 'signs'.
Know that sometimes the one you love, don't always love you back-and move
on, without bitterness.

Will read this and get an attitude.
Will read this and pass it on to other Grown women and their male friends.
