A provocative billboard showing (gasp) the Virgin Mary holding a positive pregnancy test result was recently unveiled by a church in Auckland, New Zealand. The church, called the billboard “Mary in the pink’’ and claimed it was meant to spark thought and conversation. Linda Ikeji was quick to jump on this particular tidbit, but not before wondering why rich bachelors in the Otudeko or Akiolu families are not beating down her door with wedding proposals.
New music finally surfaced from Mr Capable, Banky W and ‘That 1960 chick’ blog had the hot tracks available for listening. Styl Plus also emerged with new a Christmas song titled ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Gistdotcom’ was very pleased to share it. ‘Rose of Sharon’ was so impressed by Wizkid’s hot new ‘Pakurumo’ video that she declared it “Video of the Year”. Singer Mo’Cheddah attempted some damage control after pictures of her cuddling Peeshaun, the younger of the Skuki duo surfaced. Not surprisingly, ‘Gist, Gossip and News’ in the same place had the controversial pictures up.
All this scandal had no effect on ‘Hyperfashun’ though as they were only interested in exclusive pictures of Jennifer Hudson on the set of a Vanity Fair shoot.
In other news there were better offers available for readers, ‘Job vacancies in Nigeria’ had some pretty cool positions going and ‘Ogbongeblog’ had free iPad games for download and ‘Eights and weights’ offered useful tips on getting the perfect body this holiday season.
