    [EXCLUSIVE] Blessing Ofoegbu: Heart Of A Hunter, Slave Of Love

    Fast rising Nollywood Actress, Blessing Ofoegbu, was born 1988 and bred in Warri where she had her primary and secondary education. In 2011, she bagged a first degree in Biochemistry at Anambra State University, Uli.

    Born songstress, Blessing joined a music band in Warri at a very young age and years later she auditioned for MTN Project Fame twice (2009 & 2010) but couldn’t make it to final stage. She rebound from her failed attempts to build a career in music and fell in love with acting after her fist audition which landed her a role in the movie.

    Acting different roles has been a huge experience for her. Putting herself in people’s shoes…imitating their behaviour and at same time learning lessons from the experience.

    Blessing was motivated by Kensteve Anuka, a movie director, script writer and producer who is very strict on set and still brings out the best in any cast.

    She’s known for playing action role in movies and her best movie yet is “Heart Of A Hunter”. However she plays a few other roles which are quite challenging because they bring out a completely different personality from hers.

    Undoubtedly, her goal is to work harder and build a brand that everyone will reckon with. Very soon, she’ll be working with Desmond Elliot, Kunle Afolayan, Ernest Obi and Chidi Chikere, to mention a few. Meanwhile, Blessing Ofoegbu recently finished shooting a movie titled “My Love My Slave” without revealing her role in the movie.


    My take from that is, it’s obviously going to be a love/romance movie but I’m afraid if the story is what’s on my mind right now. Well, we’ll find out on social media soon!

    You should also keep up with Blessing Ofoegbu’s activities, moments and everything in-between by following @blessingofoegbu on Instagram. You’ve got to check her page! 😉😀

    HOT PICK: Trending Ankara styles you should try out this 2018!

    Ankara was initially believed to be common only with local market women. In recent time, different styles of latest design are now being sewn with it, even by celebrities

    Men who were never believed to go for Ankara are now coming out with stylish Ankara dresses. The ladies are also not left out with lots of amazing styles coming through everyday. Ankara has different grades with different prices starting for 1,000 naira for six yards to 12,000 naira for the same number of yards. The cheapest ones are too inferior as they get faded from the first wash.

    More so, it is not worthy to sew a very nice style with a bad fabric. To get the best output for your clothes, the fabric should be of good quality and it should be a design that really suits the style. All the latest styles are different, but they have an important place in the world of African trends. Ankara styles never go out of fashion: every year, the Nigerian and African fashion designers surprise us with new trends that involve Ankara fabrics.

    If you’re the “Owanbe type” or “mo gbo mo ya type” here are some of the different trending styles you should check out!

    Ankara gowns

    Ankara gowns are designed in variety of ways. They can be short, long, and below-the-knee, the different lengths depend on an individual’s personal preferences. Sometimes, the gowns are also asymmetric, which is a new creative discovery by African designers. This means that the front of a dress is short but it is longer in the back ( suitable for folks that love to show off their beautiful legs). For the Ankara long gown styles, they are no less attractive than the short ones. They are the best for those women who do not wish to draw much attention to themselves or would like to hide some figure flaws. The gowns could be off-shoulder, long sleeved or short sleeved (depending on your preference), straight, penciled, pleated (the list goes on).

    Ankara Shirts

    This new Ankara style is common among men especially those who do not like native wears, the shirt can be combined with jeans, shorts, trousers and even other Ankara trousers. And sometimes it might just be a little touch of Ankara fabrics on a plain shirt.

    Ankara tops and skirts

    The Ankara tops and skirts come in different styles and designs. The tops are mostly rocked with jeans pants and leggings and sometimes with penciled skirts (depending on individual  preference). The skirt designs include: high waist skirts, peplum skirts, pleated skirts, asymmetric skirts, bell-shaped skirts, dirndl skirts, circular skirts (and so on) are also mostly combined with English dresses.

    Ankara trousers

    There are so many amazing Ankara trouser styles for the ladies out there and the style you choose is a matter of your taste and originality. Same goes for the guys. The trousers are combined with classic shirts or other Ankara fabrics.

    Ankara shorts and jumpsuit

    The short style is suitable for both the male and female folks and it’s a very simple style. This style is best for individuals who have lovely sets of legs to flaunt and with impeccable confidence. The jumpsuit on the other hand is for the ladies, it’s also a very simple style for ladies with so much swagger and those who are not afraid to try something new. The Ankara shorts and jumpsuit style is preferable in hot temperature season.

    Ankara jackets and suit

    Ankara jacket styles are rocked by both guys and ladies. And the jacket can be of different designs. The jackets are combined in different manners and with different accessories. The suits are mainly for the men (at least for now) and are designed just like the cooperate suit wear used in official settings. The Ankara suits are rocked the same way you rock the cooperate suits and add a lot of African uniqueness to the individual.

    Ankara ties and accessories

    For guys that love to dress cooperate, Ankara ties is one thing you should try out. They come in different styles and include the slim ties, long ties and bow ties. There are also cuff links and square pocket accessories for your cooperate wears.


    There you have them ☺ Hopefully you’ll try out one or two styles before the year runs out. Keep dressing good keep slaying right. Have a wonderful day. Don’t forget to share this post with your friends too!

    See 10 Foods You Should Never Keep In The Fridge

    When it comes to storing food properly, there are many conventions that some people swear by and others will argue until the end of time.

    Chances are you’ve mistakenly been storing some of these foods in your fridge, when you should really be keeping them out on your counter or in your store.

    Here are 10 foods you shouldn’t keep in your fridge:

    HONEY
    It will stay good basically forever if you simply keep it tightly sealed. Keeping honey in the refrigerator can cause it to crystalize.

    TOMATO
    Tomatoes will lose all their flavor in the fridge.

    AVOCADO
    If you want avocados to ripen, definitely don’t put them in the refrigerator. However, if you’ve bought an already-ripe avocado that you don’t want to use right away, that can go in the fridge.

    BREAD
    You refrigerator will dry out your bread quickly. Unless it’s sliced sandwich bread that you intend to use within a few days, keep bread out on the counter or in the freezer. You should keep bread that you will eat within four days out, to be sliced when you’re ready to eat it, and you should freeze the rest to thaw and eat later. Bread in the freezer should be wrapped so it retains its moisture, and when you remove it from the freezer, you should let it thaw slowly and completely before eating or toasting.

    Wema Bank To Help Small/Medium Scale Businesses Grow With Over $30Million Fund

    Wema Bank successfully signs agreement with African Development Bank (AfDB) to grow small and medium scale businesses in Nigeria

    A reliable source confirmed that AfDB has already disbursed an agreed sum of $15 million to Wema Bank recently. The Bank has also secured $20 million from the Islamic Corporation for the Development of the Private Sector in Nigeria. The agreement was signed at the 3rd Africa Islamic Finance Forum.

    The fund will be channeled towards funding small and medium scale enterprises (SMEs) operating in Nigeria.

    SMEs are one of the greatest contributors to Nigeria’s economic growth. Research has shown that the sector has a similar effect worldwide, contributing to over 55% of GDP and over 65% of total employment in high-income countries.

    Also, SMEs account for over 60% of GDP and over 70% of total employment in low-income countries (like Nigeria), while they contribute over 95% of total employment and about 70% of GDP in middle-income countries.

    In reaching out to the unbanked and underbanked, Wema Bank also introduced Agent Banking services in all regions of the country. Through agents signed on to the service, Wema Bank takes banking services to existing customers and prospects wherever they may be.

    Interesting as this may sound, fingers are crossed for the Bank’s next line of action towards helping local businesses grow.

    Take A Stand With Rescue The Women Foundation (REWOFO) Against Rape In Nigeria

    Rescue The Women Foundation (REWOFO) established on 23rd of October, 2016 was registered with Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) Nigeria on 10th March, 2017 as a national charitable organisation.

    REWOFO is led by Salim Wada Usman, a 28 year old young man who hails from kano state. Through internally generated fund, REWOFO has been able to achieve the following in barely 2 years:

    • Support and cover medical bills of almost dozen of raped victims.
    • Empower many less privileged people, especially women with burden of children to cater for.
    • Conduct multiple programmes basically in Northern part of Nigeria on sexual violence against women and children.
    • School sensitizations on discrimantion and self esteem in 4 states namely: Kano, Kaduna, Katsina and Cross river.
    • Radio and television advocacy programmes on sexual violence and issue of stigma.
    • Social Media campaigns on rape virtually on all the known platforms around us.
    • Seminars and capacity building on trauma healing and communication to survivors.
    • Weekly write ups on our website, and all the Rewofo’s media platforms such as facebook page, twitter handle, on rape prevention strategies and to address the issue of stigmatization at the same time seeking justice for the victims through punishing the perpetrators. And many more.

    Salim and his team are doing their best in raising voices to make sure that proper punishment is established to perpetrators of rape – a very stiff in nature that can make people desist from thinking of committing such act. Members of REWOFO who are also members of the NBA (Nigeria Bar Association) are trying hard to make their advocacy a reality.

    I’m a tall skinny guy (not in transit tho), growing up was a ‘big challenge’ for me. Really, it was! As a shoe lover, it was always difficult to find the perfect size and design – I literally spent my childhood wearing kito.

    If you’re a big admirer of Nigerian Music I believe you have seen 9ice. Picture me as 9ice way back in 2009. Lol, I’m not exaggerating. That’s me in the picture

    I am Afolabi Ekunnrin, a student of Federal University of Technology, Minna. Like other sabi guys who are working legitimately to make ends meet, I buy and sell cryptocurrencies but my life did not become better until I thought of turning my ‘big challenge’ to a source of income.

    My dream shoe line, Folee Footwear became a reality roughly four months ago!

    So I design, build, brand and market my products like every other creative entrepreneur. Folee Footwear is an urban footwear brand for the young, old and infant.
