Wizkid a.k.a star boy went to Ojuelegba to chill. Decided to hangout out in his hood.

Wizkid was born on 16 July 1990 in Surulere, a residential and commercial area of Lagos. He grew up in an interfaith household with twelve female siblings. His mother is a Pentecostal Christian and his father practices Islam. In a 2012 radio interview with Tim Westwood, he said that his father has three wives.

During his upbringing, he listened to songs recorded by King Sunny Ade, Fela Kuti, and Bob Marley. Wizkid started singing at age 11 and went by the stage name Lil Prinz until 2006. During an interview with Adesope of Factory 78 TV, Wizkid described his life in a nutshell. He said he formed a group called the Glorious Five with a couple of his church friends. The group managed to release an album prior to disbanding. Wizkid later met OJB Jezreel, a record producer who prevented him from recording for a year. While visiting OJB’s PointBeat Studios frequently, he watched 2 Face Idibia record songs for his Grass 2 Grace album.

The Best Foods You Can Eat to Prevent Diabetes

Coming down with a diabetes diagnosis is more than just frustrating. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it’s the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S. But what exactly is it? Diabetes Research explains diabetes is a metabolic disease that causes the body to produce too little insulin. Insulin allows the glucose, or sugar, from the foods that you eat to enter your cells to use as energy, but diabetics don’t have enough insulin to make this happen. This means the sugars stay in your blood, and your body doesn’t have the energy necessary to complete daily functions.

To lower your risk of diabetes, try adding the following six foods to your meals.

1. Whole grains

There’s evidence to suggest that whole grains can protect you from diabetes, whereas refined carbohydrates, like those you would find in white bread, can increase your risk, explains Harvard’s School of Public Health. The fiber and bran found in whole grains make it harder for your digestive system to break down the grains into glucose. Because this process is more difficult, your blood sugar and insulin are increased very slowly, putting less stress on the body. Choosing whole grains that have a low glycemic load can decrease your risk of diabetes dramatically.

2. Carrots

The color of carrots is a key indicator that they’re rich in carotenoids, which are antioxidants that may help prevent diabetes, says Prevention. Research from the University of Minnesota School of Public Health found, out of 4,500 people tested over a 15-year span, those who had the highest levels of carotenoids in their blood cut their diabetes risk in half.

3. Green leafy vegetables

Some of the most nutritious vegetables are ones that are dark, green, and leafy, so if you haven’t begun adding spinach and kale to your meals now, it may be time to start. A story on Dr. Fuhrman’s website reports consuming large amounts of leafy green vegetables is associated with a lowered risk of developing type 2 diabetes. According to the story, studies have found that greater intake of such produce resulted in a 14% decrease in the risk of type 2 diabetes.

Barca even posted a picture of the 25-year-old on their official Twitter account, with the simple caption: “Neymar visits his ex-team-mates.”

Neymar, who is locked in ongoing legal disputes with Barca regarding allegations of a breach of contract and the club’s refusal to pay him a loyalty bonus, was pictured chatting with Barca first-team players including Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi.

The former Santos man was banned for PSG’s 3-0 Ligue 1 win over Nice on Friday but is expected to return for the midweek clash with Anderlecht.

In series of posts, Mompha claims Hushpuppi, real name Ramoni Abass, was a guy he housed cos he was broke. He even shared pictures of the taxi he claims his father drives while he is always on Instagram showing off a fake life.

Since the revelations from Mompha, social media has been awashed with a lot of shades and clap backs from both men. The latest coming from Ramoni Abass who begged God to continue giving him a fake life if that’s all it will take to make him continue enjoying the way he is. His quote below.

For somebody who is broke, I spend quite a lot of money. For someone who’s living a fake life, I think I have an amazing life. God if this life is fake, please continue to grant it for me, I don’t want real life.

He accompanied the above quote with a picture showing him about to board a jet while dressed in his beloved Gucci.

One thing noticed about the post is that it was liked by Nollywood Actress, Tonto Dikeh and also Ex-BBNaija housemate, TBoss. This debunks a rumor that Tonto Dikeh unfollowed him after discovering that he lives a fake life. Snooping through his followers’ list, we find the Actress still intact as one of his followers while he doesn’t follow her.

Hushpuppi Blasts ClassicBaggie And Mompha For Shading His Flamboyant Lifestyle

Nigerian big boy, Gucci Billionaire, Hushpuppi and his close friends ClassicBaggie and Mompha are taking swipes at each other on Instagram.

It all started when Classicbaggie, took to his page to shade Hushpuppi advising his followers on how it is important to invest properly than live a fake billionaire life on Instagram and spend all your cash on Gucci.

Mompha seeing the shade was a clear shot at Hushpuppi threw his own shade at ClassBaggie’s comment section. See below…

Well, this didn’t go down well with Hushpuppi as he clearly caught the sub. He replied below…

“As I grow older, I have been working on my self a lot mostly when it comes to social media matters that will concern people I have once sat down n shared food from the same plate, shared our problems with each other, laugh and drink to our wins together and most importantly kept secrets with each other. I always try to avoid being the one without any sense in the head without single maturity, I always stay away from coming here to throw shades or air things out through this platform when I have options of cursing or fighting u in real life or just squash whatever it is between us or involve people who are close to us to work things out. But I see there’s a big fool in you that has pushed you to foolishness and I will take my first post easy before I rip you apart in my next other once if u ever make more efforts to be more foolish. My fat foolish brother, before u come to social media and throw shade and call someone broke Instagram Billionaire, did u think of it well? Did u remind yourself this is the same person that just recently borrowed you 20million naira in CASH when all your friends turned you down and wanted to see you shamed? Did u know u haven’t even paid the whole money back to this broke person who stood by you as a true friend, gave you 20 million without collateral or even interest or agreement, did you remind yourself this is the same person u want to be like that you brought carpenters to tear down your staircase to put wood to be like the background he takes his photos in his Malaysia house? How many of the people laughing at your foolishness in your comment section was there for you? Tell me, but you want to be a bitch nigga and run your mouth. As u are quick to tell the world bad about me, be quick to tell them the good about me too, don’t hide the good side of me, tell the world too. Is it by force to do friendship? I block u all now y’all ganging up to be foolish. Ordinary Instagram verification hurting y’all life, is that what you stand for? U can go ur way in peace u know? Leave me out of your life. We are grown and have families, let’s be matured and live in peace. If u come look say ur mouth sharp, try me and reply then u will know”

Classic Baggie then replied his above post saying he took advantage of Hushpuppi’s foolishness, collected the N20m he gave him and invested it. See below…

Hushpuppi then replied ClassicBaggie’s above post saying;

“I am grateful to God u didn’t deny taking 20million from me which u haven’t even paid back in fully, either u are going to make yourself look good on social media by saying you took advantage of my kindness for foolishness as you call it, I am glad and proud of myself as a true good friend who was there for you, either way, you see it, kindly or foolishly. The houses issue have nothing to do with the 20million I lent you to pay different debts of “transactions” and you know damn well me and u split $150k towards going to Europe and the 20million has nothing to do with this totally, I have my receipts, conversations and everything. Money I took from u in Europe was far less than 10,000 euros and how does that account for 20million naira. Bigger people to me has been calling and sending messages to not bring myself out there, I have proved I am far useful to you than anyone of your so-called friends and followers you might be trying to mock me too. I became who I am without none of y’all help from the ground up, none of you all can say u put me on, I did all and got here by myself. The fact that I cut you all off and kept my business and dealings to myself has been hurting your life so bad cos you can no longer take advantage of me. I will leave this here and let God help me teach you a lesson that people who take people’s kindness for foolishness need to learn. Thanks for letting the world know it’s not safe to be friends with you or do business with you cos everyone is a fool to you at the end of the day where u are supposed to be grateful #PayUp #VerifiedBillionaireGucciMaster”
