On her Facebook page, she uploads her prowess in making Nigerian dishes, sings popular Nigerian hit songs, speaks the Nigerian pidgin English very well (which not every Nigeria can boast of speaking) and now its the attire.
I think this Londoner should be made a Nigerian ambassador. She has really made beauty out of this African country.
Enjoy more pictures after the cut.

Dan and three other colleagues were on Everest when the quake occurred. His colleagues survived the incident. Dan's interest to take Google Street View to extreme locations led him to co-founding Google Adventure. According to an Instagram post by his sister, the experienced mounter sustained a severe head injury.
Meanwhile ,the IT giant has provided £666,000 for response management. He obviously died in active service.
Our thoughts and prayers with their families at this difficult time.
They completely forgot this is a staple on a Nigerian table. One man's meat they say.... lol.
The cartoon is about a basketball team who secretly have their individual superpowers and could all fly. They could change themselves from their normal selves by going into magic portable lockers to transform.
It was pretty cool to watch the one with the Afro bring out variety of things from that kinky hair. lol
Beautiful..very beautiful! They all did well! Although some key people are missing in this recording. People like Angelique Kidjo, Youssou N'dour and Yvonne Chaka Chaka.
His father added this caption to his post "After watching the Jungle Book 1000 times we have moved onto the Lion King".
I can tell he is watching the Hakuna matata scene..I would be engrossed too if I was a baby.lol

What can be more cool than seeing a robot doing essential deliveries within hospital building? Glasgow's £842 million new hospital welcomes first patients today. The 14-storey building has in it 1109 beds and its to staff around 10,000 workers. In addition, 26 robots will operate behind scenes.
Three separate Glasgow hospitals, Southern General, Victoria Infirmary and the Western Infirmary will be vacated, transferring about 1000 patients to the new infirmary.
According to the Dr David Stewart, Medical Director for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, said : "This allows us to truly bring healthcare into the 21st Century. For most of my career I've been working out of buildings some of which have been more than 100 years old. "Frankly, although they were fine in their day, they were not suitable for the type of technologically based healthcare which we need to deliver now."
Long live NHS!!

Wishing other African leaders would see this and take a cue.
According to National Emergency Operation Centre , not less than 6,500 people have been injured in the tremor. A lot of emergency tents have been set up in the nation's city Kathmandu for displaced person affected by the earthquake.
Officials have warned that western Nepal might have more casualties around the mountain areas which are remote.
I hope they get enough support and emergency aids to alleviate the sufferings of the casualties.
In his response to the embarrassment he said ; "I was more worried about winning the race. They (the pants) went just after the start and there was nothing I could do," Shinn added. "I think a lot of people are going to have a bit of fun with this, but they can't say I wasn't focused and went to the line."
Oh dear, what a sight! lol.
The Stirling University team found that children with high self-control are much more likely to find and retain employment as adults, spending 40 percent less time unemployed than those who had a lower capacity for self-control as children. The concept of self control can include a child's ability to pay attention, persist with difficult tasks and suppress inappropriate or impulsive behaviour.
Dr Micheal Daly of the behavioural science centre at the university, said: 'The study highlights the importance of early life self-control as a power predictor of job prospects.'"

Congratulations to Sandra Bullock, an American actress and film producer for clinching People magazine’s “Most Beautiful Woman” of 2015. She looks fantastic at 50.
As one of the highest paid actress in Hollywood, she has accomplished so much especially for being a recipient of an Academy Award from two nominations and a Golden Globe Award from five nominations.
Well done Ma'am..Why did I think she was in her early forties? lol.
"My name is Lovelyn Chidinma Nwadeyi. I am a Nigerian. Born in Nigeria to two Nigerian parents. Raised in Queenstown, Eastern Cape by those same Nigerian parents right up until I completed my Bachelors at Stellenbosch.
Growing up in South Africa, I was always reminded by those around me that I was different to everyone else. In primary school, I had a much darker complexion than I do now, and super white teeth – the telling marks of a foreigner that betray you even when you put on your best English accent. It is just too obvious.
"This is my dad. Hamidu Mamuda. I haven't seen him since this picture was taken. Circumstances beyond my control. I want to find out what happened to my dad. If you are Nigerian especially from Jos or Plateau state please share this picture. He wrote to me often until I was 16 but I didn't find the letters until I was 36. Like you all I loved my dad and now this is my last chance to find him. Please share this picture with anyone Nigerian" - Rob Mamuda

In receiving the award, the former member of the boy band, gave his acceptance speech saying: "I'd also like to take this moment to thank four of the best guys that I ever met whilst being in the band and doing all the amazing things that I did.

He looks refreshed and happy...Or is it my eyes?
The Sun columnist wrote in the Sun on Friday saying “No, I don’t care. Show me pictures of coffins, show me bodies floating in water, play violins and show me skinny people looking sad. I still don’t care.
"Because in the next minute you’ll show me pictures of aggressive young men at Calais, spreading like norovirus on a cruise ship … These two populations are the same. The migrants harassing Brit truckers at the port are the same as the vagrants making the perilous trip across the Med.”
The media personality's comments has caused public outrage and incited complaints to the press regulator. Petitions to “remove Katie Hopkins as a columnist” as at Monday evening has passed its target of 200,000 signatures.
I think we have to know when to actually say things..There is so much bad news happening.
I would implore everyone to have a read as well!

According to their father, he says: "If my kids continue to grow at this rapid rate they will have major health issues. We’re terrified they will die."His wife Pragna Ben, 30, spends most of her time cooking, she says: "Their hunger never stops. They demand food all the time and cry and scream if they’re not fed."
In another hand, seems the other kids are just the ones struggling with their weights as the couple's older daughter Bhavika 6, weighs around 2st 7lbs (16kg).
To rescue the lives of their children, Rameshbhai a labourer who earns just Rs 3000 (£35) a month says; "We started looking for medical help and consulted many doctors but they would just refer us to bigger hospitals that I couldn't afford,"
According to Og Amazu's words, he said "We are delighted to reach the North Pole and become the first Nigerians to do so. Raising awareness of Challenge 100 and launching the Foundation is our goal today and this really is the first step on our journey. However it is poignant that we achieve this a year since the tragic events in Chibok and we remember all those that are still effected by that tragedy,". He also added "We have spent the last few years doing our due diligence on Challenge 100 and laying the foundations. The Trip to the Arctic is really our official launch of Challenge 100."
I love people who love adventures...They make people like us have something to write about.. Kudos guys..Please make sure you jump, scream and shout when the polar bear in sight!!

Liu Siying, a 22-year-old model down played the incident saying “It lasted for only one or two seconds, and I did not think too much about it at all,” She added “I think some foreign media are more sensitive about the topic compared to local media,” The Shanghai woman doused the uproar and accusations of sexism on the British driver saying. “I was just told by my employer to stand on the podium, and that’s what I did.”
Mr Hamilton is yet to make any official response on the controversy.
If you ask me...It looks like a celebratory mode activated..But there is just something not right about the picture!
Slessor is commonly made reference to in many situations in Nigeria. There are many monuments named after her due to her works and the humanity she served, amongst which is also a commemorative Clydesdale bank Ten pound note in Scotland.

Just like the blue and black/white and gold dress argument weeks back, an unknown person uploaded this black and white image of a cat on a staircase to the image sharing site Imgur some five days ago. The image has generated a lot of debate whether the cat is going up or down the staircase... Guys what do you think?
