VIDEO SHOCK! I Introduced Whitney Houston To Cocaine Not Bobby Brown - Michael Houston Confesses.


Whitney Houston's brother says HE is to blame for introducing the singer to drugs like crack cocaine back in the 80s … not Bobby Brown … and last night he came clean to Oprah.
Michael Houston sat down with his mother Cissy and spilled his guts to Oprah on "Oprah's Next Chapter" … admitting he was the first person who did drugs with Whitney.
Michael says he feels extremely guilty for Whitney's death — but says he didn't realize how deadly drugs could be when he first brought them to Whitney's doorstep … explaining, "You gotta understand at the time … the 80s … it was acceptable."
Houston adds, "It’s painful … I feel responsible for what I let go so far." 
Whitney died in Beverly Hills last February after a drug binge that included ‘yayo’, Xanax and ‘kush’.

Nigeria Folorunsho Alakija Kicks Oprah Winfrey Out Of Her "Richest Black Woman In The World" Seat.


 Folorunsho Alakija is the new "Richest Black Woman In the World" Over Oprah Winfrey.
Nigeria’s richest woman draws the bulk of her fortune from oil. Folorunsho Alakija started her career in the mid 1970s as a secretary at the now-defunct International Merchant Bank of Nigeria, one of the West African nation’s earliest investment banks. In the 1980s, after studying fashion design in England, she founded Supreme Stitches, a Nigerian fashion label that catered to upscale clientele. Her biggest break came in oil. In 1993 Nigerian President Ibrahim Babangida awarded her company, Famfa Oil, an oil prospecting license which went on to become OML 127, one of Nigeria’s most prolific oil blocks. Famfa Oil owned a 60% stake in the block until 2000 when the Nigerian government, led by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, unconstitutionally acquired a 50% interest in the block without duly compensating Alakija or her company. Famfa Oil went to court to challenge the acquisition, and in May this year, the Nigerian Supreme Court reinstated the 50% stake to Famfa Oil. Chevron owns the remaining 40%. Through her charity, the Rose of Sharon Foundation, Alakija supports widows throughout Nigeria.

OMG! This woman was a secretary and now she is on her way to being worth billions of $ with already $600 Million asset.

The Societal Marital Pressure On Spinsters (Right or Wrong?)


If Nigeria were to be South Africa or U.S.A., most women will remain unmarried till death. But in a country where 'the society' dictates peoples actions, it will be a huge crime for a lady to remain unmarried. In Nigeria, 'The Society' is a god. People worship 'The Society', people do things to please 'the society'....but in times of difficult situations, 'The society' deserts them. 
The Nigerian Society abhors a 35-year old spinster, she is seen as a failure. She is abused and crucified. In other to satisfy 'The society', she jumps into marriage with the wrong man. Why would you insult a happy 30-year old spinster when wives are killed everyday in their marital homes?
Marriages collapse in Nigeria because of "Forced-Marriage".....most Wives cursed the day they were married...They are wounded Lioness. Nigerian cultures have never been and will never be fair to the Nigerian woman. Ladies should not be pressured into Marriage. Ladies should be allowed to get married to people they truly loved.
