Kanye West and Damon Dash Sued By Music Group For Lifting Movie Title

A Latin musical group has dragged Kanye West and popular American Entrepreneur, Damon Dash to court for allegedly ripping off their trademarked “Loisaidas” brand name for their new movie . 

The music group which goes by the name, Lower East Side music is even more furious because the movie promotes murder and drugs. Its music producer, Michael Medina said in a Court suit filed Thursday that the rap moguls’ new movie about street life in the ‘hood gives his Latin duo “Loisadas” — slang for Lower East Side — a bad name. 
“I’m disgusted that they’re taking a brand that I made and built and turning it into something that it isn’t,” he said.
The movie, which was produced by Kanye West and Damon Dash, premiered in New York City last month and tells a story about the hard-scrabble life of “a new breed of hustlers, The Loisaidas,” according to the movie’s Web site.
“I’m not in this for a paycheck,” said Medina, “but I’m not going to let anyone use something that I worked hard for, that I’ve branded, that’s under my label.” 

Medina is seeking for unspecified damages.

Buhari didn’t promise to end insurgency in two months – APC

APC has described as misleading and unfounded reports that the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari has pledged to end insurgency in the country within two months.

This is contained in a statement issued in Abuja by Malam Garba Shehu, Director, Media and Publicity, APC Presidential Campaign Organisation.
“The President-Elect is still waiting to be sworn in on May 29. After the ceremony, he would need time to study the security situation and plan strategically with the security chiefs as to the way forward.
“Time is of essence here. Therefore, President Buhari didn’t and wouldn’t peg the decimation of terrorism within two months.
“The General was unequivocal about cleansing Boko Haram from our land; he would do a good job of it by giving a final permanent push to rid Nigeria of unscrupulous elements,’’ the statement said.
“It would be unfair and mischievous for someone to ascribe to him what he hasn’t said,” the statement emphasised.

5 killed, 15 injured as Suicide Bomber hits motor park in Gombe

An explosion near a bus station in Gombe killed at least five people and injured 15 others, on Thursday.
“We had an explosion outside the motor park  this evening around 8:30pm which killed five people and injured 15 others,” Muhammad Garkuwa, a drivers’ union official confirmed to the AFP.
“The explosion was from an explosive left by a woman in her handbag beside a bus waiting to convey passengers to Jos,” he said in an account supported by a nearby food seller.
Garkuwa said he loaded the casualties into a vehicle while Yusuf Darazo, who sells food near the bus station, said the female suspect left her bag after being told the bus’s destination.
“No-one suspected her. People around assumed she was making calls before the bus filled up,” he said.
“As she was talking in the phone she moved away from the bus towards a row of kiosks, as if she wanted to buy something, leaving her bag where she was standing.
“She disappeared and the bag exploded soon after, setting the bus on fire. I saw five dead and several injured.” he explained.
President-elect Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday vowed to crush Boko Haram, vowing to rid Nigeria of the scourge of “terrorism”.

Dr. Prince Johnson, who is local Chicago Doctor was arrested a few hours ago after suspicion of giving patients false HIV test results. Read more from Huzlers:
Patients and NURSES began getting suspicious after 16 patients “tested positive for HIV”, until nurses found out the truth, Dr. Johnson was playing an April fools joke on all his patients.
Upon realizing Dr. Johnson was being dishonest, patients called the authorities and Dr. Johnson was immediately arrested. “I can’t believe this was all a part of a sick April fools joke, I’m so relieved to find out i actually don’t have HIV”, says Clarissa, a patient of Dr. Johnson. Although nurses cleared up actual the HIV results, not everyone left the clinic with relief. According to nurses, there was a patient, who Dr. Johnson had told was HIV negative, only to find out she was actually HIV positive.

"Surround Yourself With Good People" - Father Mbaka tells Buhari

Fiery Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, says he has been vindicated at last.
He stated this in a congratulatory message to the president elect Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) on his victory in the March 28 presidential election.
Speaking through his spokesman, Maximus Ugwuoke, Mbaka  noted that Buhari’s victory was a fulfillment of his prophecy in the New Year Message. He also urged Buhari to seek divine wisdom before appointing people into his cabinet noting that President Goodluck Jonathan’s biggest problem was that he surrounded himself with the ‘wrong people.’

The cleric said, “It is with vindictive joy and glory to God that the Adoration Ministry, the nation and indeed the world saw the fulfillment of Fr. Mbaka’s New Year prophesy of change with the miraculous, victorious emergence of Gen.Muhammadu Buhari at the March 28 polls as the President-elect of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“We wish to restate that before President Goodluck became the President of this country, Fr. Mbaka prophesied it in his message titled ‘Okolo.’
“Today again, Buhari’s victory among other lessons it portends for Nigerians has once more confirmed to all and sundry that Fr. Mbaka is indeed a true Prophet of God and that his New Year message was indeed from the Oracle of the Holy Spirit as he declared.
“The ministry with magnanimous heart holds no grudges against anyone who attacked it in one way or the other at the rage of the controversies surrounding Fr. Mbaka’s message and view their actions as being orchestrated by their misconstruing of Fr. Mbaka’s prophetic calling.

“The Ministry joins the rest of Nigerians to congratulate Muhammadu Buhari as God’s chosen instrument of change to tackle the myriads of problems facing Nigeria and pray God to endow him with the wisdom to go about this onerous task.”
Mbaka, whose New Year Message, “From Goodluck to Badluck,” became a major talking point during the campaigns for the election, said Buhari’s emergence was a divine victory for all Nigerians.

Toxic Friends – 10 Types of Friends to Avoid

The company we keep can make or break us. Be aware of toxic friends and avoid these ten types of friends who can do more bad than good in your life.

A good lover can complete you and make you feel alive.
And just like that, a good group of friends too, can motivate you and cheer you up.
But on the other hand, a few bad friends can drag you into the pits or ruin your life too.
Choose your friends carefully, and always make sure that the friends closest to you are the ones that can make life better for you, and not worse.
Types of friends to avoid
Here is a list of ten types of friends that you really need to avoid.
1 The Cheater
Many friendships have been crumpled and crushed, because a best friend hit on a friend’s romantic partner.
To avoid making best friends with this type, avoid the sneaky flirts, the sweet talkers and generally, people who try flattering you and talking like you mean the world to them.
You’d be better off with someone who’s more true and down to earth with their claims.
The Competitor
When a friendship becomes more of a competition, things may get very ugly, and it might be time to end things. These type of friends are always finding ways and excuses to compete with you, and do not always have the dignity to simply congratulate you on your accomplishments.
The whole friendship turns into a game of one-upmanship. Instead of your friend sharing your happiness with you, they take every chance they can to ceaselessly brag about their own accomplishments and achievements. A good friend, on the other hand, surely does not keep a tally of losses and victories.
3 The Leech
A friend who constantly borrows your stuff or money or depends too much on you is one that definitely needs to be avoided. No one wants a one sided relationship. If all your friend does is take from you, without giving anything back in the friendship, there’s no point in being friends anymore. If they’re looking for one, tell them to take a one way trip out of your life.
4 The Copycat
Imitation is considered to be the sincerest form of flattery, but a friend who looks or behaves like your photocopy machine can be very scary.
5 The Shrink
All of us confide in our friends and ask for advice, but when your BFF starts acting like a paid shrink who always picks flaws in your life or relationships, it can get very annoying and depressing.
6 The Selfish Friend
This type of friend can go to any lengths for their benefit, but behaves passively when you ask for help.
7 The Wild Child
Dangerous and unstable is how you define this type. You usually get in trouble or always end up having to save your friend from trouble.
8 The Whiner
This type of friend is never satisfied with anything they have, and they spend all their time whining and grumbling about how the world is so darn unfair to them. Stay away!
9 The Mood Killer
This friend intentionally or unintentionally kills the mood as soon as they enter into a conversation with you. They always seem to find a flaw in anything you do or have, be it your clothes or your love life. They are like the lone dark cloud hovering over you on a sunny day. Nothing positive ever comes out of their mouth. They are never short of sarcastic comments or depressing thoughts.
10 The Swinger
This friend is partially bonkers because their mood swings change from being nice to totally snappy in seconds without any provocation. And this friend may just use you like a punching bag to express their feelings, be it frustrations or happiness. Who needs to be around someone whose moods swing like a pendulum?

Life can be a bed of roses if you have good friends. Though no one is perfect. Identify these unhealthy friends and weed them out of your life. Stay away from them, for your own good.
