Correctyans Joke Of The Day

A man is out shopping and discovers a new brand of condoms—Olympic condoms. Clearly impressed, he buys a pack. Upon getting home, the man informs his wife of his new purchase.
“Olympic condoms?” she asks. “What makes them so special?”
“There are three colors,” he replies. “Gold, Silver and Bronze.”
“What color are you going to wear tonight?” she asks cheekily.
“Gold, of course,” says the man proudly.
The wife responds, “Really, why don’t you wear Silver?”
“Why silver?” asks the man. 

”Well, it would be nice if you came second for a change.” hehe

Family Of 9 Die From Inhalation Of Generator Fumes

The family that died in Imo State sometime in July, stirred up contoversies amongst the society with the people saying it had to be "evil spirits"

Now the State Commissioner for Health, Dr Obi Njoku now can confirm that their death was not as a result of a spiritual attack; instead it was as a result of the family's carelessness. The result of their autopsy which was released earlier today,showed that the family died from  the constant inhalation of carbonmonoxide, derived from their generator set.

According to Dr Obi, the family forgot to switch off their generator which was running inside their little home. The constant inhalation of this poisonous gas while they were sleeping resulted in the death of the Emekuku family

However, the community has disagreed with the autopsy result, pointing out that there was no generator set in the compound
According to one of the village heads who pleaded for anonymity, "the result is unacceptable, even the government agreed initially that there was no generator, and we were with the Njoku family late into the night and there was no generator"

Who do we believe- The people Or the government?

Nicki Minaj To Be The New Judge At American Idols

Randy Jackson
The "dawg" days are over at "American Idol" as Randy Jackson is officially leaving the judge's table ... but will still remain a part of the show as a "mentor."(whatever that means)

Sources connected to "Idol" say ... there's some concern among the brass that Jackon is not well-suited for the mentor role ... but they feel they need him because he's the glue that helps keep the show together.
This isn't all bad as  Nicki Minaj's will be the replacement of Randy and sources say the deal is 99% complete... but still not a sure thing just yet.

We're told the producers of American Idols are fully aware that Mariah Carey isn't a fan of Minaj and doesn't want her at the table ... The producers love this because they think the conflict and tension between the two of them will be good for the show.

"Each day is a miracle that intoxicates me. I want more. I greet every morning like a new pleasure. And yet I am keenly aware of all life's artifices. Getting dressed, wearing make-up, laughing, having fun-isn't all that just playing a role? Am I not more profound, carrying the burden of those twenty years when I 'wasn't alive', than all those who rushed around in vain during that time?"

CorrectYans Joke Of The Day

A guy is sitting at home when he hears a knock at the door. He opens the door and sees a snail on the porch. He picks up the snail and throws it as far as he can. Three years later, there’s a knock on the door. He opens it and sees the same snail. The snail says "What the hell was that all about?"

Mo'cheddah In Relationship With Ondo Prince


Mo'cheddah's love life has been a very private affair. No one knew if she was dating or not,but now Correctyans is glad to give you the gist.Lol.

Modupe-Oreoluwa Oyeyemi a.k.a Mo'cheddah is currently in a relationship with an Ondo prince...This is not a new relationship as these two have been dating secretely for over two years.

Her boyfriend, Bukunyi "BK" Olateru-Olagbegi is a prince from the Olateru-Olagbegi family in Owo and the younger brother of radio personality,  Gbemi of "The Beat 99.9fm."

Bukunyi is a businessman and an aspiring politicial who loves Mo'cheddah very much. These two lovebirds travel around together sometimes. He was recently in South  Africa with his girlfriend for the shooting of her upcoming video.

Contacting Bukunyi with respect to the issue proved futile as he said he had nothing to say regarding the matter, while Mo'chedda said:  "Yes I can confirm that we’re close friends and partners. But I do not plan to put my relationship in the public eye. People can believe what they want to believe; all I can say is that BK and I share a special friendship that’s been on for many years, and he’s someone that has been very instrumental to whatever the Mocheddah brand has become today…"

Seems like these two want their relationship to remain private. 
Mo'chedda and Her Man


Nigerian Singer,Flavor Is Being Sued By Ghanian Artist

Chinedu Okoli a.k.a Flavor is a Nigerian hi-life singer that has entertained us with hit songs like "Nwa Baby" . It seemed life was good for him until Ghanian Singers,Wutah decided to sue him for plagiarizing their product.
The bone of contention in this dilemma is the recently released single by Flavor titled " Kwarikwa ". The Ghanian duo claim the song is a complete replication of their 2008 single,"Kotosa", copying its chorus,beat,rhythm annd tempo.

While flavor's manager,Benjamin has been quiet about the whole issue, Wutah's manager said this in a recent interview:
"This does not come as a surprise to me as I already knew point blank that the material put out by Flavour was an outright plagiarized product of Kotosa. I mean I heard what seemed like Kotosa blasting from the huge speakers in a CD vendor’s shop when Iwas driving to a friend’s home when I visited Nigeria last two months. I was happy and surprised that Kotosa had finally made its way to Nigeria aftermaking hits in Ghana only to hear Flavour’s signatured hi-life voice on the beat! I was disappointed to say the least. I shook my head as I passed by’"..
 What the Ghanian duo is sueing for is still undisclosed but rest assured,i'll be all over it *wink*

CBN Suspends The Introduction Of The N5,000 Bill

 
CBN Governor: Sanusi Lamido Sanusi
The Nigerian Senate has ordered the Central Bank Of Nigeria to stop further actions relating to the introduction of the N5,000 naira bill.
The senate in a press confrence held in Abuja said the CBN had no rights to take such drastic actions without their consent because it could have rippling effects on both Nigeria and Nigerians. The senate said until the CBN consults them and review their plans, all further actions must be stopped with immediate effect. A statement was released by the Chairman, Senate Committee on Banking, Currency, Insurance and other Financial Institutions, Senator Bassey Otu. Read below...

"The CBN must be very careful in order not to send a wrong signal or message to households, domestic sector and even the external ones that the Nigerian currency is valueless, which I believe it is definitely not, and that for every unit of value they need to carry a large quantity of cash."
"As a committee we should do our work, this morning there is a burning issue that is going on in our country and there is need for us; as a committee to comment on this topical issue. I am the chairman of the senate committee on banking, currency and other financial institutions. We have also read in the papers just like you about the currency restructuring that the CBN embarked on.
"I believe that a project of this nature requires parliamentary approval because there are numerous and fiscal implications on the entire economy.
"The CBN in 2008 and 2009 came up with a proposal to re-denominate the currency, that was even to take off the zeroes. This was just 2008 and 2009 and here we are in 2012 we have seeing a kind of policy somersault even though we understand the dynamics of the sector very well. I believe that we have to be well briefed on this.
"Also in 2005, the CBN undertook a major currency restructuring which ran into billions of Naira. Till date a proper value has not been done to know it's costs to the Nigerian taxpayers and the extent of the benefits and in that 2005 coinage, I think it did not work at all because both the goldsmith and the blacksmith converted the coins to molding bangles, earrings and so on etc.
"So, we believe that the coinage works very well where there is infrastructure to take it like a half, probably like a parking where you go and put it etc. We have not developed that real basic infrastructure and those coins most of them are nowhere really to be found.
"So, the CBN will have to prove that the policy is not a clear contradiction or at variance with cashless society, which they are even yet to justify and whether this is the popular economic way to go.
"So, we are asking and we are sending a letter to them to stop all further actions on this until the senate of the federal Republic is properly briefed",- Sen Bassey Otu

Davido Drops Out of Dbanj’s UK Show: Releases Statement

D'banj And Davido
Fast Rising Nigeria Musician, Davido  pulled out of Dbanj’s August 27th UK show. He issued this statement yesterday:
"TO ALL MY FANS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM (UK), WHO I VERY MUCH APPRECIATE,
I regret to let you know that I will not be performing along side my most respected big brother and friend D’BANJ at the scheduled show of August 27, 2012 in London.
I am both a Nigerian citizen, as well as an American citizen, I carry both the Nigerian and the American passports. As an American citizen, I do not require a visa to enter the United Kingdom, however I require a work permit in the UK for any paid performance such as the scheduled August 27, 2012 in London, that is the law in the United Kingdom. I applied for a work permit at the British Embassy in Abuja/Lagos but unfortunately up till the close of business on Friday August 24, 2012 I was unable to obtain a work permit, as a result I have to cancel my performance and my trip to the United Kingdom altogether. I apologize for the inconvenience and the disappointment, but be rest assured that I will make it up to you all on a future date. You will agree with me that it is better to be law abiding at all times and in every jurisdictions. Finally, please go out en mass to support the Koko Master (D’BANJ) and have a wonderful night on August 27, 2012."
Warm Regards
David Adedeji Adeleke aka DAVIDO

Man Charged To Court For Drugging And Raping Daughter

Nzewi Donatus has been charged to court by his daughter for allegedly drugging and raping her on several occasions. He is also being charged for threatening to kill one Ngozi Emeka, for reporting him to the police.
In Court,Oluchi(Donatus's daughter) narrated the harrowing story;

“My father has been having sex with me whenever I am asleep and there is this drink he always forced me to drink before I sleep and when I wake up, I do noticed sperm all over my body.   When I asked him, he will deny it and warn me never to ask him such question”.

On the 15th day of August when I woke up, I noticed such on my body again and this time, I was bold enough to ask him but when I did, he beat me up and sent me out of the house.   So, I went to one Ngozi for shelter and when I narrated my pains to her, she quickly ran to the police to file a report”
- Oluchi
 
She went on to tell the court that her father did his absolute best to keep her away from male company. This of course was done for his own selfish purposes.
Mr Donatus is currently detained at the Kirikiri Prison pending further investigation and court hearing. Mr Donatus should try and get used to the prison system because if found guilty, he could be spending the rest of his life in there.
