Gender Politics.. The First Lady in Retrospect(Mrs Dame Patience Jonathan).

Notwithstanding the debate that there is no constitutional role for the wife of Mr. President or a state governor, these first ladies have managed to attract attention and reckoning by making maximum use of their privileged positions and by embarking on projects that have reportedly brought to them, enormous resources and power.
It is on record that besides her elevated sense of fashion, which other First Ladies, after her, have tried to keep up, Babangida's late wife, Mariam, set other precedents which have, in a way, helped to define the role of First Ladies. Other First Ladies, including wives of state governors with character, have so passionately tried to do their brands of Better Life for Rural Women's project. Also, they have deliberately promoted their individualized sense of fashion, and this, during their tenure, has come to be accepted by other women as a kind a model.
So, each time a new President or a new state governor emerges, Nigerians, especially the women carefully study the wife's sensibilities for a new fashion craze and for a new better life campaign strategy.
This, in a way, explained the interest in the current First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, since her husband, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, first emerged the Acting President of Nigeria after the death of his former principal, Alhaji Umaru Musa Yar'Adua.

Before then, not many Nigerians have seriously assessed the interests of this First Lady to correctly predict what she would likely do or the legacy she would try to leave behind. In fact, news actually spread round that the new First Lady is not politically conscious enough to attempt to rival or exceed the political tenacity exhibited by her immediate predecessor, at the twilight of "her tenure."
Although such claims could be considered scandalous, we have seen so much of it in Nigeria that it no longer means anything to us. In the case of what to expect from Mrs. Jonathan, it only confirmed the worst scenario, which, incidentally tallied with the shook-proof expectations of most Nigerians. That is, that the First Lady would normally not contribute any meaningful thing to the political and administrative development of Nigeria but would, at best, look for some nebulous projects, involving mega parties and dances, through which the nation's resources, made possible by her husband, would be channeled and wasted.
But as events unfolds and as the Jonathans consolidate their stay at the federal seat of power, they, more especially, Mrs. Jonathan, have considerably surprised their critics. Dame has particularly disproved the claim that she is and has remained a political neophyte.
In fact, before Jonathan first expressed interest to contest this year's general election, the First Lady had literally taken over the campaigns. She was everywhere, serving as the unofficial middle-person for her husband

t is in this context that I consider Dame Patience Jonathan's passionate campaign for increased women participation in politics as a timely contribution.
Although one would rightly say that she is not the first Nigerian to call for political empowerment of women, there is hardly any doubt that she has arguably pursued this cause more than any First Lady before her. For a vivacious woman some pessimists alleged could be a disaster as a First lady, if not closely managed by her aids, Mrs. Jonathan has probably proved to be very good in political grassroots mobilization.
You would be shocked by the way she closely relates with wives of all the state governors, including the ones whose husbands are in opposition. Let us not talk about the political worth of her now historic ride in a bus with the wives of the PDP state governors to the venue of the party's presidential primaries in Abuja.
Let us reserve for another day the power she had garnered through her Women for Change and Development Initiative, which is being launched in all the states and local government areas.

If I am not mistaken, it appears Dame Patience Jonathan has actually struck the right chord to unleash the hitherto hidden political consciousness of Nigerian women. If this is true, how did she do it, can it be sustained beyond her and is it only meant to enhance her husband's chances in this year's presidential election?

Kanye 'N' Jay-HOVA abt 2 Drop A Duo-Album...Wud!!!!!!

“We’re putting out a whole album now,” Kanye said.

“We had done five [songs] so far and then a few of them kind of were out there” — Monster,” also featuring Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and Bon Iver, was one of Kanye’s weekly Good Friday releases — “and I put them on my album. Sorry, Jay!”
“We’re going to the South of France at the end of this month just to record new ideas,” he said. “We’ll probably be done with the album in like a day or whatever,” he added, seemingly joking. “If you think about it, it’s really easy [for Jay]: He only has to think of, like, 10 verses!”- Rolling Stone

Is QueenBEE really PREGNANT??We wanna know??...

Us Magazine reported that multi-award winning singer Beyonce Knowles was pregnant.
The magazine also alleged that the 29-year-old Single Ladies singer and husband Jay-Z were yet to make an official announcement, but reported that Beyonce is in her first trimester.
“B was shocked. She loves kids, but she wasn’t ready to be a mother just yet,” says a source close to the singer.
Despite the surprise, another source says that Beyonce sees the pregnancy as “a gift from God and she’s so happy.”
But this would not be the first time that news had it on websites that the couple are rumoured to be expecting a child as in March this year, the same rumours were making waves.
But the couple that was said to be earning $122 million between June 2008 and June 2009 by Forbes Magazine, dismissed the rumours then.
If it true, VuvuzelaKakaaki wishes Mr and Mrs Carter a happy pregnancy.

Big Brother Fanz-FAV/Loser gets BIGGER cheque from Mugabe.

Zimbabwe's representative in Africa's Big Brother reality TV show landed in second place, but took home a prize bigger than the official jackpot, a gift from President Robert Mugabe's family

Munyaradzi Chidzonga just lost out to Nigeria's Uti Nwachukwu, who won the official 200,000-dollar prize from the show that locks contestants from around the continent in a house.
But on Wednesday, the 24-year-old received a 300,000-dollar cheque from President Robert Mugabe, state media said.
The money was collected through a campaign spearheaded by Harare businessman Phillip Chiyangwa, a relative and close ally of the veteran ruler, who reportedly thought the voting on the show was unfair.
It's not clear if 86-year-old Mugabe himself actually watched the show.
"I didn't think you would survive because you looked so young, perhaps the youngest of them all," Mugabe told Munyaradzi as he handed over the cheque.
"It was Nigeria versus Zimbabwe and Nigeria is a very big country, so you deferred to Nigeria. But both of you won and from our point of view, for us, you were the winner."
However, some people said the awarding of the money was a case of misplaced priorities in a country that struggles to pay teachers their meagre salaries of around 150 dollars a month.
"Once again, we are the masters of misplaced priorities," one Shamba Shambamuto wrote in a letter to the privately owned News Day.
"If we can give this contestant a whopping 300,000 dollars, then surely we can do for our suffering masses who live in perpetual hunger, sickness and economic marginalisation."

Big Brother Africa: Uti’s Star Shines Brighter!! Wud!!

EISH people, seems sometimes you just can’t win when it comes to Big Brother … oops, let me get my facts straight here … you can win even if you lose … uhmmmmmm, depending on your political connections.
OK, OK, OK! Today I’m going to play it as straight as Zambian housemate Paloma with a whiskey bottle in hand. And that’s dayum straight.
I’m not going to utter the ‘M’ word. Not, not, not. Seems fans of Zimbabwe’s Munya (only once, people, only once – to avoid confusion) get spitting mad when he headlines on this page.
So yip, the curtain may have come down on Big Brother Africa All Stars, but the show goes on. Hardcore fans are still reliving this year’s finale in cyberspace. Believe it!
Who knows, maybe ‘the battle of BBA5’ will become an annual event, as happens with the re-enactment of historical battles in the United States and elsewhere.
Interestingly, Wikipedia notes that activities related to re-enactment have a long history. The Romans, for example, staged recreations of famous battles as a form of public spectacle.
Generally, re-enactments are regarded as educational … hmmmmmm. Not sure we’ve reached that stage when it comes to this year’s Big Brother, but there’s a whole lot of people out there who are big on spectacle!
Otherwise, just a few in case you missed it moments for those still trying to cope with withdrawal symptoms.


BBA winner Uti has arrived back home to a hero’s welcome.
Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan topped the list of national figures who applauded the Delta-born actor’s feat.
“I heartily congratulate Mr Nwachukwu who has shown to the world once again that the average Nigerian is warm, charming and a delight to be with,” President Jonathan wrote on his fan page on Facebook after expressing his delight at the news of Uti’s triumph.
The Nigerian head of state also encouraged the youth to emulate the virtues of good character, self-confidence and patriotism displayed by Uti while in Big Brother Africa.
“Once again, I congratulate Mr Nwachukwu and wish him an eventful and successful reign as winner in the next one year,” the Nigerian President said in rounding off his congratulatory post.
By Wednesday already more than 300 000 people had liked the comment, The Vanguard in Nigeria reports.


Other national figures who officially expressed pride in Uti included his state governor and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole.
There was a deliciously amusing comment, also in The Vanguard, about Uti’s ‘runaway tongue’ moments: “His manners weren’t excellent but when compared to other housemates, he’d score an A perhaps.”
If you’re missing your housemate/s, it seems most of them are on Facebook. Some also have fan pages. Among the latest additions are a ‘Shuti’ (Sheila and Uti) fan page, and I just know some of you haters are going to love me for pointing you to this ‘vent’ site – there’s even an ‘I Hate Uti’ site.
For those of you who like indepth analysis, there’s a four-part breakdown of why ‘he who shall not be named’ failed to win. You can check it out at:
In addition, a number of the housemates also use Twitter.

Happy Kanye-Day "KIM"....LOL!!!!!

Kanye 'Helped Kim Kardashian Celebrate Her Birthday'
Are they dating? Find out more here...
Those rumours about Kim Kadashian dat kanye west seem to have resurfaced again, with reports suggesting Yeezy helped the model celebrate her 30th birthday.
As we previously reported,  the socialite and West were apparently spotted on a date at a Chicago restaurant with onlookers claiming they 'definitely looked like a couple.
Now, according to US magazine, the rapper joined Kim at a private party in New York to 'help celebrate' her birthday, fuelling rumours they are together.
The Power singer is said to have joined Kim on a private yacht, with reports suggesting the pair 'posed for photos' together.
While things may be hotting up between Kim and Kanye, the ex-playboy model has been blasted for airing a phone conversation with her former boyfriend, Reggie Bush, on the finale of her reality TV show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Kim has come under fire after putting the American footballer on speakerphone when he quizzed her about her then beau, Miles Austin, with viewers of the show complaining that Kardashian made Reggie 'sound crazy.'
The 30-year old has since taken to her blog to clear up the rumours, writing: "I saw some stuff on the internet saying I've put Reggie on blast for airing a phone call with the two of us."
"Reggie and I were in a relationship for over 3 years and we have taped dozens of conversations and iChatted many times while filming, so this is nothing new or scandalous."
She added: "I think once you watch the episode you will really see that I in no way put anyone on blast.
