On February 17th, 2014, Lagos State Governor,Babatunde Raji Fasholasigned the “No Smoking in Public Places” bill into law to regulate smoking in public places. However, a lack of understanding of the law, has led to many Lagosians being exploited. But now, you can learn all about the law here!

Although the bill was signed into law in February, it only becomes effective on August 17th, 2014. Therefore, it is illegal for any official to enforce the law prior to this date. Also, the law will be enforced by theLagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA);therefore, it can not be enforced by just any official.

In addition, here is some pertinent information you should know: For individuals

A Woman Can Also Propose To A Man; Daystar church Pastor Adeyemi says

The Senior Pastor of Daystar Christian Centre, Pastor Sam Adeyemi, while preaching on “Prepaper for the wedding”, shared his opinion about women proposing to the man and also gave insight on how they can go about it. He also supported his position with the story of Ruth in the Bible who was taught to propose to Boaz whom she eventually married according to Ruth Chapter 3 in the Bible.

Below is what he said

“Some people may ask, Pastor is it okay for it to be the lady that will tell the guy about marriage? Well, is there anywhere in the bible that says a lady can’t tell a man? The thing though is, a lot of time, it’s better for the guy to pop the question because men become suspicious a lot of time when they are being chased. They like to eat meat that they chased in the bush. They don’t like the one that falls on their lap dead.

However., sometimes, all the signs are there that she is the one but he is not just speaking. Its also not healthy for the lady emotionally for the man to be so close to her and yet not say anything. So in such a case, a lady needs to prod him.

So how can a lady go about it? Ask him where are we going? I sense this is where the relationship is going, what do you think? Its either a yes or a no, but with that, you know where you are going instead of being on an emotional roller coaster and your heart is smashed into pieces at the end of the day”. How true is this guys…..Do you agree or disagree?

The office of famous actor, Hafiz Oyetoro, well known as Saka, went up in flames Thursday last week in his office at the Department of Theatre Arts of the Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education, Ijanikin, Lagos.

From what we gathered, the whole department was touched by the raging inferno and properties worth several millions of naira destroyed, but no life was lost in the unfortunate incident.

Speaking with Nigeriafilms.com over the phone on the incident, the comic actor disclosed that there was no spiritual undertone to the fire outbreak, saying that he was not the only person affected by the sad event.

“No, I don’t believe that it has to do with spiritual attack, I was not the only person affected by the incident. Offices of eight lecturers were burnt by the fire. I don’t think anything should be attached to it,” he said.

When asked if he would easily forget the experience, the MTN ‘I don port’ Ambassador said, “that is life my brother, life is full of challenges. You don’t dwell on bad occurrences. As far as I am concerned, it has happened and there is nothing anybody can do about it. I only pray that God gives me the courage to go ahead and I am willing to go ahead. I thank God no life went with it. My family is intact, the only thing is that I lost some properties to the fire. I take it as one of the distractions of life.”

Commenting on the cause of the inferno, Saka said, “a committee has just been set up by the management of the school to find out the cause, I am sure before the end of the week, we would know what cause the inferno.”

He also lamented properties and documents lost to the fire. He explained that “documents got burnt, most of the projects of the students I am supervising and works of those who have already finished and all that went with the fire.

“Some of my promotion packages also got burnt, but one can always get those ones back. There are some that can never be retrieved like the research works that got burnt, tapes, laptops with vital information and contents, but I know God is in control,” he concluded, while adding that he expects the best in the coming years even with the fire incident

People Have Not Been Helping Me Because of D’Banj—OJB Jezreel

Culled from Nigfilms.com

The case of ace music producer, Babatunde Okungbowa, better known as OJB Jezreel drew public sympathy in 2013, when calls were made to the general public to raise fund for his kidney transplant abroad.

The target was N16 million and Nigerians swung into action as soon as the news of his kidney problem got into public domain. But while that was going on, many wondered why someone of OJB’s status was unable to afford such an amount, knowing the affluence of musicians.

It is a common thing for artistes to lavish money on material things like cars, cloths, jewelry and women. What surprised many was that OJB Jezreel was the brain behind 2Face’s ‘African Queen’ hit single, which got the attention of the world and Hollywood and turned the then budding artiste into a super star.

So, it was expected that someone like the talented music producer should have managed his kidney ailment before it degenerated.

During the donations, some Nigerian celebrities used OJB Jezreel’s situation for publicity stunts as some of them announced their donations publicly.

The issue almost caused a problem, which forced some concerned friends of OJB to debunk claims and news report that some artistes donated for the cause. Among the artistes on the list was D’Banj, who was reported to have donated a sum of N5 million to the cause.

After his return from the surgery in India, OJB Jezreel claimed D’Banj never donated towards his treatment.

While speaking with Nigeriafilms.com in an interview at an event in Lagos, OJB Jezreel explained that he has no grudge against D’Banj but that some people feel reluctant to listen to him whenever he meets them regarding helping a cause.

“I am not harsh on D’Banj. You go to a programme and someone says you’ve raised N170 million, others said N500 million,” OJB said. When asked if such gets to him, he answered, “it doesn’t get to me, but it gets to you, when you are about to seal a deal and someone said what are you doing with the N500 million you raised. You understand what I am saying now.”

“These things happen. When you go to a place to tell people that there are people going through what I went through, please, they need to help them, they will say, ‘come on, you can’t tell me you’ve finished N170 million. It is all about the people who lied that they gave me money. It is not only D’Banj.

“His own only came out because someone said he was there, when he testified that they gave me the money. I am not interested in who gave and who didn’t, what I am interested in is using what God has done for me to touch other people’s lives,” he explained.
