Leonardo DiCaprio Wins First Oscar, What About Other Greats?

Leo gets his long deserving Oscar award after years of delivering stellar performances and getting all the love from movie lovers world wide. The question on everyone’s lips is, why hasn’t this A-list actor bagged this award all these years? Did he have issues with the Academy award organisers? His performance in Titanic alone should have earned him an Academy award. Hello? Django unchained!…The Great Gatsby!! Have the award organisers been asleep?

It is 22 years since he was first nominated for an Academy Award, having been nominated for best supporting actor for ‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape’.
We can’t help admiring how he’s been consistent and hard working, while putting up a positive attitude over the years, despite several Oscar snubs!
Congrats Leo on your first Oscar win!

Now, Not everyone can win an Oscar, of course if every actor gets the gold statue, the award loses it’s value and credibility. But there are several other great actors who deliver great performances and get snubbed by the Oscars.
There are actors and actresses whose performances in movies are top notch! They fit into their characters and play roles to a tee. They have been consistent as well, yet they’ve been robbed! I don’t know if the Academy is waiting till they pass on, then they’ll get a posthumous Academy Award…*sighs*

The following actors have never been honoured by the Oscars with the coveted gold statue.
Johnny Depp
Tom cruise
Idris Elba,
Mark Wahlberg
George Clooney

Morgan Freeman (shocked)
Brad Pit
Samuel L Jackson

Will Smith
Gabrielle Union

You can add more names to the list, and mention movies the actors featured in as well.

SETTING BOUNDARIES! The Way To Go: By Bismark Ekene

Ever had someone walk into your house uninvited, straight to your bedroom without knocking on the door? Before you know it they’re in your closet checking out your personal stuff or they walk through every corner of your home as if they’re co-inhabitants. While in your home, they operate your gadgets without permission and they peruse everything within their reach.
Sometimes without asking, they’re in your kitchen helping themselves out with various edibles you’ve stocked in the fridge.

Most people do these things all in the name of feeling-at-home in someone else’s house! It could be friends, buddies, relatives or brethren from the church who exhibit this ‘we are family’…’I am entitled to your space’ attitude. They can unknowingly push the limits of your boundaries because well, they know you wouldn’t react.
Honestly, these acts can be annoying or it can deepen a relationship, depending on how the individual feels about this person.
Personally, I consider these intrusive acts VERY disrespectful. I’m not saying it’s cool to prevent people from sharing your space neither am I saying that it’s best to go the strict way, but courtesy and good manners shouldn’t be blurred out because of a close relationship. You must set boundaries!

A times we might consider the level of familiarity or closeness with someone as the reason why there must be nothing like privacy, so you always allow some folks walk into your home unannounced and do whatever they like unsupervised.
At the same time, not setting boundaries may in fact pave way for people who enjoy getting into another person’s business or space, out of curiosity.

Regrettably, over time too many relationships get severed because of over familiarity, that’s why you must set boundaries!

PRE-WEDDING SHOOT: A Must or Unnecessary? By Bismark Ekenedilichukwu Benson

Nigerian couples have stepped up their game!
I know I’m not the only one who has noticed the pre-wedding trend. Pre-wedding photo/video shoot is no longer a choice, it’s a given for most Naija couples. Just tell a Nigerian babe that having pre-wedding shoots is unnecessary and she’ll give you this ‘You-must-be-out-of-
your mind’ look! They crave it and live for it. I wonder why!

Pre-wedding shoots have become one of the emerging wedding trends and most couples are catching up. These days most couples create a budget allocated to pre-wedding shoots. It’s usually incorporated among the major activities leading to the wedding day.

Now that it’s becoming a MUST for love stories to be told in style, visuals and print, Every couple wants to showcase something different and creative, something to leave their single friends and admirers wishing and hoping for a love like theirs.

Pre-wedding shoots are usually done days or months before the actual wedding day. Usually, the couple try on different similar attires with captions like “save the date”. “two become one” “Tunde and Kemi 2016” and they play around with different poses in front of a camera, as they try to depict how smitten they are.

Most times these photos/videos go along with romantic captions or a poem dedicated to their partner and these shoots are posted on social media or top wedding blogs/ magazines.

Whether it’s necessary, vain or not to have pre-wedding shoots remains arguable. The fact is that, we live in a pre-wedding shoot era now, so this is just the way things have become and will be until the next big piece of sliced bread takes over.

What’s your take on pre-wedding shoots? Share your opinion in the comment box.

Diabetes Mellitus: A Preventable Disease. Written By Dr. Ejike Udeze

Almost everyone I know, knows about diabetes mellitus, even the ten-year old I was discussing with the other day said it’s a problem with urinating. But it seems that not everyone knows it can hugely be avoided. As diabetes cannot be cured but only controlled, prevention will assume the role of the best cure.

And so I was chatting with a friend of mine some days ago. In between she mentioned her mother was not so long ago diagnosed with diabetes. Next my preventive medicine mode kicked in. She’s in her early twenties. Hence came this talk. Designated for all age groups but mostly for people under middle age.

Yes diabetes can be avoided by learning and implementing some good diet and lifestyle habits. Even though diabetes Mostly starts manifesting after the age of fifty, these habits are better learnt and put into practice from very early in life.


These include eating of healthy diet such as fruits and vegetables daily. When it comes to carbohydrates, eating more of un processed starchy ones like cassava(akpu), garri, yam, etc is better than eating processed foods. This is so because un processed foods take longer time to digest. Hence releasing glucose slowly. Therefore intakes of sweetened refined foods such as sugar containing drinks, sweetened beverages, ice-cream, etc should be reduced. As these are already highly processed they get easily digested, releasing glucose almost immediately into the bloodstream. Repeating such assaults over the years might overwhelm the body leading to diabetes. Likewise, too much of fatty foods is not good, these should be cut down too.

Excessive alcohol consumption should also be stopped. Little alcohol containing drinks here and there everyday is even good for the health in Normal individuals. But too much of it can damage the organ (pancreas) implicated in diabetes.


Exercise can never be over emphasised in the daily life of humans. Regular physical activity, in the form of walking, jogging, running, swimming, cycling, Soccer, etc for at least 30 minutes Daily is the prescription. Exercise helps reduce the burden on the pancreas hence prolonging it’s longevity.

Obesity has been noted as a prominent factor in people with diabetes. Regular and persistent daily exercise helps in fat reduction and weight loss.


Giving your baby cow milk early in infancy has been implicated in the development of diabetes. Cow milk contains some cow proteins which the baby reacts to making him develop diabetes later in life. Hence it’s always one of the counselling points in support of giving your baby only human breast milk for the first six months of life.

Genetics has a role to play in diabetes. Hence diabetes can be said to run in some families. But environmental factors such as the above mentioned bad diet and lifestyle habits can and do interplay with the genes to cause diabetes.

Therefore if one has a relative, the parent or sibling who is already a diabetic, the onus lies on him or her to safeguard his or her future by learning and living these saving lifestyles.

A stitch in time they say saves nine.

Olajumoke, the former Bread seller turned model is still winning!

The inspiring story of the former bread seller Olajumoke Orisaguna has become a trending topic, not just in Nigeria but worldwide. The world is paying close attention!
Since that fateful day the Sabo Yaba Agege bread seller photo bombed Ty Bello’s photo shoot with Tinnie Tempah, she’s become the rave of the moment because the world isn’t talking about Tempah right now. The world is talking about Olajumoke.
Not only has this 27yr old mother of two succeeded in making a name for herself as a model, she’s turned a bad situation to fortune. She’s got us believing the famous saying which goes thus, “No condition is permanent”.

Achievements so far:
Olajumoke got signed to Few Models Agency a few days back and she’s currently on set of a new photo shoot for celebrity designer, April By Kunbi.

While all the ladies longed for a moment to have Tinie Tempah’s attention, Olajumoke was Tinie Tempah’s #WomanCrushWednesday…Sorry ladies!

Olajumoke was featured on CNN as they have been documenting the process of her photo shoot.

Our new favourite model has got a stunning THIS DAY style magazine cover under her belt. A cover that will make Tyra Bank and Naomi Campbell turn green with envy.

Olajumoke’s story was picked up by Buzz feed and British Huffington post. According to Huffington Post, “Olajumoke Orisaguna’s remarkable story is the stuff of your most wishful daydreams.”.

Olajumoke, the ‘Bread-seller’ turned Model, is now on Instagram!
Olajumoke has just opened her official Instagramaccount (@olajumoke__o) managed by her modelling agency, where her fans can follow up on her rising career as a model.

She’s just been offered an enrolment into the Poise finishing school.

And the one that left our mouths wide open, She’s just been offered a furnished luxury apartment in Lagos. Courtesy Sujimoto Construction Limited…

I believe more achievements would follow. Our fingers are crossed…Waiting on the first brand to deliver dem car keys..hey Toyota..Audi..Kia motors…You can do it!
