The lying down game (also known as planking, or face downs) is an activity, popular in various parts of the world, consisting of lying face down in an unusual or incongruous location. The hands must touch the sides of the body, and having a photograph of the participant taken and posted on the Internet is an integral part of the game.
Players compete to find the most unusual and original location in which to play.
The location should also be as public as possible, and as many people as possible should be involved.
I heard a man died while planking, fell from a balcony
Here are pictures of our own celebs; Dprince, YQ, Ebuka, Olamide and Dr. Sid planking.*sigh* Will be posting more celebs planking pix soon

Provided dbanj proposed marriage to her.
"First of all I have to agree within myself that I actually want to get married. If I would marry him, I don't know. I think my life is already chaotic as it is being one celebrity. So, it's a no"When asked about the rumoured James Bond girl role, she laughed and said
"I overhead the rumour but I don't think it's a rumour because the movie hasn't been shot yet and so I'm waiting for the call. I'm on standby. I always say, 'from people's lips to Gos's ears'.
There you have it.

This is what popular american blogger,Tracie Egan Morrissey of Jezebel.com wrote on dbanj's dress
"I'm not familiar with Nigerian singer/songwriter D'banj's work, but he's my pick for best dressed. Such attention to detail! His pants look like they were crafted out of some Italian nonna's tablecloth. And those aren't ruffles on his shirt—they're tasseled beads."

Rush hour star, Chris Tucker and Andrew Young were on a trip to nigeria where they met with former President. I could remember these two guys helped launch delta flight to lagos in 1998, where Andrew poked fun at nigeria, saying the traffic on the (delta) flight will be so great that they'll call it "Rush Hour 4.
Chris had much fun with Obj, very unusual, they had a nice time at Obasanjo's farm.

But the biggest surprise? America's own Snoop Dogg playing back up to Nigerian star D'banj, embracing him as his nephew and taking a Nigerian passport before leaving the rest of the remixed "Mr. Endowed" to the Yoruba-singing heartthrob.
Nigeria, Africa's most populous nation with 150 million people, long has been a leading cultural influence across the continent. Its low-budget "Nollywood" films can be found everywhere, while its music plays in taxicabs and minibuses far beyond its borders.

From the long traffic, to the filled Silverbird car park, to the large number of dapperly looking guests walking into the galleria and the red carpet stand that was flooded with stars, the event could not have been anything other than the premiere of ‘Kiss and Tell’.
The Kiss and Tell premiere started at about 4pm with a red carpet event at the Atrium of the Silverbird Cinemas, which lasted for about four hours as against the two hours planned out. This was not surprising though, as the large number of paparazzi on ground could not have enough of the long list of stars on ground. The roll call of stars in attendance include; Monalisa Chinda, Emem Isong, Joseph Benjamin, Uche Jumbo, Lilian Bach, Susan Bash, Julius Agwu, Fred Amata and a whole lot of others.
At about 8pm guests moved into the hall for the premiere proper. The Nigerian comedian and radio presenter Yaw, who was the anchor of the event, came on stage and introduced the executive producer, producer and the cast of the movie who took a bow after a resounding applause from the audience.
Guests were taken through several crescendos of fun and laughter as the romantic comedy ‘Kiss and Tell’ came up on the screen. Executive Producer of the movie Monalisa Chinda and producer, Emem Isong were all smiles after the movie as the standing ovation and applause they got after the movie signalled to them that they did a good job.
‘Kiss and Tell’ features A-list Nollywood actors like Desmond Elliot who also directed the movie, Monalisa Chinda, Nse Ikpe-Etim, Uche Jombo, Joseph Benjamin, Bhaira Mcwizu, Darlene Benson and others. It will start showing in Abuja, Lagos, Port Harcourt and other parts of the country from July 18.
In ‘Kiss and Tell’, Iyke (Joseph Benjamin), the ultimate player in the game of women runs Blue Quest with his friend Bernard (Desmond Elliot); their friendship however does not apply to their coy. Iyke, who prides himself as the ultimate player per excellence however met his match perhaps more than he bargain for in Delphine (Monalisa Chinda), a divorce lawyer who is a divorcee herself. Iyke is about to lose a bet, a controlling shares of Blue Quest. He has to win or lose all.

An alleged nude picture of Nollywood actress and Timaya's ex, Empress Njamah surfaced on the net.
And the question is, Could this be Empress Njamah giving a blowjob?
A photo of a lady and a guy doing simultaneous oral sex called 69....
This woman in the picture looks just like her. I dont think its Empress coz she's not the kind of gal that seeks this type of attention. She already denied the nude picture.

"I have Officially Terminated My contract with BadBeat Records. Firstly, I wanna advice any
upcoming artist to be careful before signing any
record deal. Promises BadBeat Records given to
me were not fulfilled.
After building my career to a certain level, I expected any partnership wit a record label to take me to a certain level, that didn't happen.
Badbeat Records. They don't have any
foundation. No office, no studio, nothing! All they
have is a bank account where they put my
Oh! U knew all these and you signed with the label..something must have been wrong somewhere. It looked like a get-rich-quick deal coz I could remember the label got him a car, shelter, shot 2 music videos of his hit tracks in new york and SA and a music tour.

"5 years ago I came with Jeremiah Gyang to Enugu for a rainbow net show. Nobody knew who I was.. just a tag along to spit 16 on Kaunar Allah!
That day however, a director on chocolate city died, his name is dapo... He died in a car crash.. So jeremiah and I heard on our way
Dapo's death was a key components that led to Jeremiah leaving Chocolate City... I believe it also really affected Audu Maikori. It took Chocolate City years to recover
However, in this space I was the only artist on Chocolate City and I decided to move to Lagos..."
What is so important is that I met Djinee at the show in Enugu.. And he said.. Ur good.. If you need a place to stay..I got you"
MI will be releasing another mixtape soon, its titled 'Illegal Music 2". And he will featuring Iceberg slim, the rapper he has been exchanging words with; Its not beef tho, just a challenge and Mode9 (a lyricist he respect so much).

"I am absolutely amazed and flabberwhelmed by the brazen looting,the colossal and monumental fraud and knavery that Bankole was said to be involved in. I view this depicable act by d ex-Speaker as a serial gang rape and senseless masturbation of d nations finances"
Could still remember when members asked Patrick to make an apology for calling his them rascals, and he said he's making an unreserved apologia...and the members never understood that word 'apologia'
Darey strikes the right chord with James Hilman Suit, Nico Didonna shirt and a pencil trouser at Alicia Keys' Keep A Child Alive Black Ball.

2face's Next Album Could Be His International Breakthrough Album; Working With Top American Hiphop Acts
|R kelly blessing 2face|
Like 2face is not left out, a close source disclosed that he has been flying to US to record songs off his upcoming album in R. Kelly's studio. They hooked up after the one8 group was formed. Another international breakthrough album in the making?
He has hooked up with akon already, not another fake collaboration, Akon himself confirmed it...they recorded together in Atlanta where Akon is based. The video of him and american RnB queen, Mary J blige recording gave us a sneak peak into his upcoming album. Like its having international music feel, considering the sound quality and production.
So, dbanj and 2face are setting the pace and paving ways as they climb the world stage.
I hope to see their albums get reviewed by Times, billboard, rollingstone and others coz they are the newest thing happening to american hiphop; that's not an overstatement.
Dbanj claimed they first met Kanye at an Airport in Dubai where they played him the remix of Mr. Endowed.
They debunked rumours making rounds that they will be relocating to New York, as Kanye only had music deal with them; all other things will be handled by mohits. Mohits and their koko branded investment will still be.
About dbanj's album
Dbanj's album project will be gulping $3million (about N450million), and Mohits will be paying for that. The album will be completed in 2 months time, and will be having guest artistes like; Wande coal, Kid Cudi (good music label mate), 2face.
Should we be expecting Ryan Leslie's collaborated track with any of the storm signed artiste soon? Ok, Ryan Leslie and NaetoC on track will be cool
Excerpts from T. B Joshua's representative press statement
"We therefore cannot be categorized among the wealthiest in Nigeria because what money we receive is not accumulated but rather given out to those who need it most. Apart from money, assets that classify one among the wealthiest are not in our possession. For example, houses around the world or private jets. It is true, we do not own a private jet – not that there is anything wrong with owning one. They are a blessing and can be used to further the Gospel. But we do not own one."
