Drake wants a check for all that YOLO merchandise. The
Canadian teardrop shed the holiday spirit on Christmas
Eve in favor of a capitalist one, uploading two photos to
Instagram of YOLO clothing and demanding that
someone cut him a check. The photos were taken in a
Walgreens and a Macy's, meaning that Drake is either a
cheap and lazy Christmas shopper like the rest of us or
he has a roving team of YOLO spies policing drug and
department stores across the country (stop snitching!).
It's unclear if Drake has a trademark for anything and/or
everything YOLO or if he just expects people to send him
checks when they print up clothing. Of course, he's not
the only person in the United States looking to horde all
the YOLO cash to himself — there are over 100 YOLO
trademark applications either live or dead in the United
States for everything from cologne to dog collars
(perfect stocking stuffers, if you're running super late).
So maybe that's a good lesson for Drake. You only live
once, and you only get one shot to copyright your iconic
phrase before a pack of vultures sweep in and do it for
In a chat with us, the comedian insists the house in question, which is currently under construction, is not connected to his role as an ambassador for the company.
'I did an advert for the company as one of their ambassadors and I was duly paid. I wasn't given the house free. Who does that in Nigeria? Even big international organisations don't give as much for their ambassadors. I chose to buy the house because I realised that the company truly has the interest of its clients at heart and 2face decided to join me.
Although he refrused to disclose the worth of the house for obvious reasons, we gathered that the house, located in Lekki Phase 1, could cost up to N70 million when completed.

The prolific filmmaker, whose films -- including Malcom X
and his most recent, Red Hook Summer -- often address
race in America, said in an interview last week that he
would not be seeing Quentin Tarantino's new, Jamie
Foxx-starring western about slave vengeance.
"I can't speak on it 'cause I'm not gonna see it," he told
Vibe Magazine, when asked about Django. "All I'm going
to say is that it's disrespectful to my ancestors. That's
just me... I'm not speaking on behalf of anybody else."
Later, Lee continued to criticize the film's take on the
subject matter, which alternates between the brutal,
including depictions of torture and whippings, and the
comic, highlighted by much of the dialogue assigned to
Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio.
"American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti
Western.It Was A Holocaust.My Ancestors Are Slaves.
Stolen From Africa. I Will Honor Them," Lee wrote, which
he then followed with responses to fans both critical and
supportive of his stance.
After a fan wrote that Django was just a film and not to
be taken seriously, Lee responded, "Wrong.Birth Of A
Nation Got Black Folks Lynced [sic]. Media Is Powerful.
DON'T SLEEP. WAKE UP YO."
Lee has long been a critic of Tarantino, whose films often
deal with race in controversial ways. Following the
release of Tarantino's 1997 blacksploitation tribute,
Jackie Brown, Lee said, "I have a definite problem with
Quentin Tarantino's excessive use of the n-word. And let
the record state that I never said that he cannot use that
word -- I've used that word in many of my films -- but I
think something is wrong with him."
Django, with its 100+ uses of the n-word and graphic
depiction of slavery, has drawn its own debate, with
many split on whether it belittles slavery or shows its true
"He's smushing slavery and its ills in our faces. It's not
sanitized and pretty," MSNBC host Toure told The
Hollywood Reporter earlier this month; on the other
hand, film critic Dwight Brown told THR that "Lots of
the violence in the movie feels more like a caricature
than a re-enactment. The kind of bloodshed and brutality
you'd see in a horror film or a superficial action movie,
versus what you might find in a real drama."
The Argo director took to Facebook on Christmas Eve to
shoot down speculation that he might run for the U.S.
Senate seat in Massachusetts being vacated by John
Kerry, who has been nominated by President Obama
to replace Hilary Rodham Clinton as Secretary of
"I love Massachusetts and our political process, but I am
not running for office," he wrote. "Right now it's a
privilege to spend my time working with Eastern Congo
Initiative (ECI), supporting our veterans, drawing
attention to the great many who go hungry in the U.S.
everyday and using filmmaking to entertain and foster
discussion about issues like our relationship to Iran.
"We are about to get a great Secretary of State and
there are some phenomenal candidates in
Massachusetts for his Senate seat," the post continued. "I
look forward to an amazing campaign. Happy Holidays to
Affleck was whispered about as a candidate for a short
time after it became apparent that Kerry would receive
the nomination to head up the Department of State; the
speculation that he might run grew once he danced
around the issue during an interview that was broadcast
Sunday on Meet the Press
Almaroof Oloyede, husband of talented Nollywood
actress, Funke Akindele, recently welcomed a baby boy
from one of his wives, Fadekemi.
Fadekemi, who was already pregnant when Almaroof
married Funke in May 2012, gave birth to a bouncing
baby boy some days ago. Full details of the child's birth
was not readily available at our disposal as at the time of
writing this report but sources confirmed that Almaroof
is now a father of six children.
"Almaroof is happy about the Christmas gift (the
child) God gave him this period," a source revealed to us.
Pasuma, is getting worse day by day. After the
pronouncement and renouncement of Pasuma from the
Arabambi clan to his Oganla clan, more controversies
have been generated along with counter allegations and
insinuations on their rifts.
Pasuma tells those who care to listen that K1 is still his
boss and he remains loyal despite his freedom from the
Aranbabi clan. But after that statement by Pasuma,
there are still insinuations that Pasuma is avoiding K1.
A recent public function, the popular Oshodi Day held
last week by one of Pasuma's loyalist fan and NURTW
top shot in the state, MC Oluomo, where a lot of artistes
were paid perform, was another place to confirm this
gist. Among those who were invited for the day were K1,
Malaika, Taiye Currency, Pasuma, Saoty-Arewa just to
mention but few.
But it came as a surprise to many at the Oshodi Day
2012 as Pasuma never came
to perform with his fellow artistes where they were
performing on the same stage. Pasuma's stage was
separately mounted somewhere else called Orile-Oshodi
which is just like the back of Oshodi.
It was alleged that Pasuma told the
organizer to separate his stage from his co-artistes while
many insinuated that he desired to perform far away in
Oshodi just to avoid K1.
