Nigeria Officially Declared #EBOLAFREE

The World Health Organisation officially declared Nigeria Ebola Free today. While this is good news, we must continue to keep ourselves and surroundings clean and healthy. Ebola is still prevalent in West Africa and people are still dying. My heart goes out to the thousands of families that have lost friends and loved ones as a result of the disease; I pray that God wipes Ebola out completely in all corners of the world.

#LindaIkeji opens up about her sex and social life, talks marriage and expansion

As you probably know, Linda Ikeji's blog account has been suspended by Google. We are not sure why but we are told that it was on the grounds of plagiarism. You know how serious this is, right? I also posted her own side of the story. Please read her last message to her fans on the now seized Blogspot account:

"Like, these Cyber-squatters are not even playing. All my names have been taken.lol. Think it's finally time for me to move to my own domain name (I was scared before because of hackers) but there's no Linda
Ikeji available online. Unknown people have registered everything there is to register. Some as far back as 2007 when I didn't even know what blogging was all about though I was blogging at the time. I got some people to help me look for a lindaikeji domain name yesterday...and everything has been taken. I'm kind of flattered
sha, didn't know I was that much of a big deal...lol.

Anyway, I will find one weird LindaIkeji name and let y'all know soon where I am moving to. I don't want to give any of these guys the pleasure of buying those names from them.

Secondly, I also think it's time to expand. For almost 8 years it's been mostly me. I think it's time to get more hands to work at LIB. Doing it mostly alone has been fun but it can be quite

Events in Abuja: Bolingo Fashion Lounge Opens @BolingoAbuja

Written by Nneka Lolo Mma venussbay@gmail.com

There was a lot to be thankful for and to celebrate on the 1st of October this year when Nigeria marked it's 54th Independence Day celebrations; the day also announced the birth of a much awaited 'fashion lounge' in the Capital City. 

You see, in many cosmopolitan fashion-aware societies, it is common to have regular fashion networking hubs where designers, models, buyers, fashion enthusiasts, etc mingle, network or just have fun. Fashion hubs are also relevant in bringing visibility and patronage to local talents. Charity they say, begins at home and for Venussbay, this is of utmost importance.

Home to a teeming number of Nigerians from all walks of life, rich in  diversity, young talents, boastful of the upper middle class with high purchasing power, and famed for its weekend shopping fairs, gardens, restaurants and lounges, Abuja is generally scant in regular fashion networking events. Put together by Bolingo Hotel and Towers and A-Squared Network, in partnership with VENUSSBAY Fashion and Events Blog, the maiden edition of the fashion lounge featured young, upcoming Abuja based designer Homto Dokpesi of DUCHESS H COUTURE who has been in the fashion business for three years. Her collections are very practical, ready to wear casual-chic dresses and separates. She has showcased in Nigeria Fashion Week, the Labo Ethnic Fashion Show in

 "So something has been going on for the past couple of days that I haven't reacted to because I wanted to see it play out and see how far these people will go. They have gone far and it's now time to react.

The only reason this is happening to me is because I'm number one...so I am flattered. I am currently No.10 on Alexa.com, more read than all the other news sites in Nigeria, so I understand why I am the target. If I were them, I'd hate me too...lol.
