Stella Damasus ex husband threatens her with court case

It seems the troubles in the lives of beautiful Nollywood actress, Stella Damasus, with regards to marriage are still very much with her.
What I gather is that Stella Damasus is not yet divorced from her second husband, Mr Emeka Nzeribe before she secretly married Doris Simeon's husband, Daniel Ademiroka
As a result, Emeka Nzeribe is said to have commenced a process of suing Stella for going ahead to marry and live with another man (Doris Simeon's husband) while they are still married, legally.
If Emeka Nzeribe make good his threat to sue Stella, this will sure compound the problems of the actress who was highly criticized on the social media recently by her fans who said she lack the moral right to insult Senators over under-age marriage, since she is not also laying a good foundation for other ladies.Source: Olufamous

Revealed: tricks vulcanisers use to cheat you

It seems that the unwritten rule among vulcanizers is that any car driven into their workshop or makeshift tent must have its tyres inflated, no matter the level of pressure in the tyres! In this way, the owner of the vehicle is made to cough out some money.
The experiences of many motorists in show that most vulcanizers give different readings of tyre pressure.
For example, after the first vulcanizer has said that your tyre is over- inflated, another one reads it as under-inflated. Then a third vulcanizer will commend your decision to check the tyre pressure as any further delay could have been suicidal.
“What some of these guys do is that they don’t even read the pressure at all. They fix the gauge and, in a twinkle of an eye, they shout, ‘No air.’
“The truth is that the pressure may be okay. But, they feel that admitting it may deny them the opportunity to make extra money. So they will tell you that there is no air.

“They pretend to inflate the pressure and turn around to reduce it and collect money from you,” Mr. Okoli Udeh, who operates a commercial vehicle in the city, says.
Experts have warned motorists not to inflate their tyres beyond 40psi or 280kpa. As if to buttress this, the report posted on tyresafe.org says, “Don’t inflate your tyres above 40 psi or 280 kpa. By keeping them at their optimum pressure, your running costs are also reduced. Under-inflated tyres require a bigger force to make them turn, so your car uses more fuel. Additionally, tyres that are not set to their correct pressure wear out more quickly.”

If you live in the African or Asian region, the word Tecno must have fallen on your ear. Not the music genre techno – the other techno but this Tecno, the one that have been flying in cheap pieces of plastic and wire aka phones into Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and other African countries.
Let’s face it. Tecno was one of the first companies that brought ‘affordable Android smartphones’ to Africa, but they are not the first, nor the best. Their debut ‘Android’ phone, Tecno N3 may have sold millions of units in Nigeria alone, wowed many users who probably are using Android phones for the first time, but hey believe it or not, Tecno N3 is one of the worst Android phones ever sold.

The chocolate city woes

Sometime ago, when one of Nigeria’s leading music house, Mohit Records, broke up, many people wondered how it happened, as all appeared just perfect before the collapse. Presently, another top record label is set to experience what Mohit suffered, as the talk is that Audu Maikori’s Chocolate City is undergoing the biggest challenge it has witnessed. The issue is the decision of one of the label’s popular name, Brymo, to dump the label. Brymo walked out on Chocolate City after it became obvious that the label was focusing its promotion on only Ice Prince and MIIt was the same drama that led to Jessie Jags walking out on the label, some months ago, complaining that his career as an artiste was suffering because he was being used mainly as a producer, contrary to the agreement.
