Veteran movie star Richard Mofe-Damijo popularly known as RMD seems to believe the story of Tiger wood is a challenge to every dreamer and downcast, that with hard-work, perseverance and faith all things are possible: as he recounted the ordeal of Tiger Woods in the last 11 years and made an inspirational piece for everyone but just after he had wittingly said he was waiting for his US agent to get him an audition for the Tiger woods Biopic.RMD The Tiger.The excerpts, the statement he posted on Instagram:"I’m here channeling my inner Tiger Woods as I’m waiting on my US agent to get me auditions for the Tiger woods biopic and I don’t care who says I cant audition for the part because like I always say, nothing is impossible, so excuse me if I stretch the concept too far, lol. On a serious note, Tiger Woods victory last weekend and the realities of Easter both bear profound lessons in life and reiterates the fact that “failure is indeed an orphan but success has many brothers”...He continued:"Tiger Woods on his part was a sports hero, his legend traveled far and wide until his infamous troubles started. He lost his wife, his career, his friends, his name and reputation. Tiger became a thing of ridicule. Sports analysts and the media wrote him off but when it was time, after 11 long years of near oblivion, Tiger won the masters and all those who abandoned him and called him failure are celebrating him today. My take on it is this: “DO NOT ALLOW THE CHEERS AND THE APPLAUSE GET TO YOUR HEAD. STAY HUMBLE THROUGH THE PROCESS” and as you face your journey to the cross or 11 years of oblivion, keep praying and keep ‘training’.Have an amazing Easter Holiday"...We at Gist Of The Day also believes its a given that with hard-work, perseverance and faith?The sky is ones limit.

Controversial Nollywood actor, Uche Maduagwu, has renewed the feud between former BBNaija housemates Cee-C and Alex with yet another stinging post.According to Maduagwu, Alex is better than Cee-C and will marry before her.Uche is angry that Cee-C during the reunion show revealed that Alex had s-x with Tobi in a South Africa hotel, forcing him to blast the reality star.See the post below: "Whether you like it or not, ALEX will get married before you because she is not a BBnaija “Amebo”. The people who told you they saw someone with another somewhere after BBnaija ended in South Africa,🏠 why didn’t they use their mouth to tell the world?🌎 Could it be that they thought you are the “amebo” in BBnaija house that’s why they miraculously told you. "Keep carrying GOSSIP about like “new yam festival”, and watch ALEX get married before you,💎 she will not only get married, but God will give her a very handsome man, especially that particular sweet man that you have been falling in love with in SECRET, its obvious the GOOD guys always end up with my baby sister, while the “Queen Leonards” of this world will always follow you about like Google map… "When are women ever going to start supporting each other after a reality SHOW in Naija, instead of carrying a story from one person and sharing it in public, just to make their fellow Ex housemate CRY? Why?" he wrote.

Read their story below:“Let me tell you a quick story about our birth.I’m sure you guys won’t expect this lmaoSo according to my mum,when she was pregnant she was expecting just one child,just a child.But later on,she started getting bigger than usual then she got worried and decided to go to the hospital for a scan but it kept on showing that she was pregnant with just a child.She would go to the hospital twice almost every week because she was so concerned about the size of the pregnancy since she was having just a child.So About five months later(Ikr,that’s a long time)she went back to the hospital and they finally told her she was pregnant with twins,she was so surprised and at the same time relieved that the babies were fine.So,she started buying two pairs of everything,same shoes,same clothes and all.Then when she was due which was eight month three days(multiple births don’t actually stay till the usual nine months,most of them)she went to the hospital and then the doctor told her she was going to deliver her babies(twins)through cs.After some hours they finally got the twins out(Tomisin and Tomiwa)but according to my mum when the doctor was about closing up they noticed a movement and they were concerned,thinking something went wrong they had to undo the stitches,and then it turned out that they found another baby(Toni)What would you do if you found out you were originally meant to give birth to twins but then it turned out you gave birth to triplets?lmaoWhen my mum regained consciousness,the doctor told the nurses to bring in the triplets,my mum thought she heard wrong so she asked “what triplets ?”then they explained the whole thing to her and she was filled with joy and was having mixed emotions.Who wouldn’t?So there wasn’t any clothe for Toni(the last child)they quickly had to get a substitute till they went to buy her stuff,ours actually because we had to wear the same thing.So why Toni and I look more alike is because we shared the same placenta and Tomisin had hers.” Happy birthday @.tomiwa. @toni.xox_ @thomisin_ ❤❤❤❤ #triplets #beauty #birthdaygirls

Atunyota Alleluya Akpobome AKA 'Alibaba', A Funny Wise ManScooper MCM | April 15, 2019I bet you didn’t know that Alibaba was previously married to Patricia Leon, an ex beauty queen from Trinidad and Tobago. His present wife, Mummy Mary, as he fondly calls her is his wife from his second marriage.Patricia LeonThe love story between the two is not your usual ‘Romeo and Juliet’ one. They met in 1992 at a bank where Mary was working, Alibaba had gone to open an account and Mary was in charge of customer care at the time. Later on, a friend of Ali Baba who was also Mary’s cousin introduced them.After dating for sometime and having a child together, they parted ways for several years and in 1998, Ali Baba met and married his now ex wife Patricia Leon but that marriage ended in 2003.All through his marriage to Patricia, Ali Baba and Mary remained friends even when he was with Leon because they had a daughter together.It took three years of begging Mary after his marriage with Leon ended before Mary accepted Ali Baba back. Their first daughter was 15 years old at the time. The two finally got married in 2006. And today is their wedding anniversary. YAY!Asides Alibaba being the grandfather, greatgrandfather and pioneer of everything Comedy, we know him to spew invaluable wisdom on an almost daily basis on his Instagram page.A quick visit to his IG page would enlighten you on some of his ideals and why he is revered, and not just in the comedic world.On governance, he said..He also believes that...On economy, he said, Shebi they said Obasanjo was wrong to ban import of orange juice. Now that that sector is strongly positioned all the people who protested have calmed down. Let us ban import of tomatoes, you will hear them again shouting. They all just want Nigeria to import everything. It doesn't occur to any one of them that these are the things that make our exchange rate so poor.ScooperHe triples as a love doctor when he gives advice on relationships, Very often you get to hear this line "I love her so much I cannot stand anyone getting close to her". Or "I go crazy when I see girls chatting with you or hugging you". You go just die for nothing. Because, trust me you are not in love. You are a consequence of inferiority complex. And to put that into proper context, you are a walking bundle of emotions activated by threats of better options. So when you see someone near your spouse, that respects her better than you do, you are afraid of losing her INSTEAD OF STEPPING UP YOUR GAME. He is tagged the father of Nigeria modern day comedy. He host comedies for VIPs, politicians, a favourite of Nigeria’s past president and lest we forget his top notch acting skills. Remember the wedding party? Yeah.He seems to be a seer of some sort especially when it comes to issues that affect the Nigerian polity, be it Economy, Sport or Governance, we could chalk it up to his age or his affiliation with past presidents or we could simply accept the fact that he has spent years garnering knowledge, honing skills and expanding his frontiers and now we know that his very glitter is GOLD.Dear Atunyota Alleluya Akpobome, Sense wee not kill you.READ ALSO: The Good, The Quirky And The UnbelievableBy AgnesREPORT

Nonso is the kind of man who takes up all kinds of odds jobs just to keep up lifestyle and appearances. Any vocation becomes his job and he is convinced he is making an honest living. Honest, maybe but I doubt it’s sustainable. And it reminded me of how my father saved me from marrying such a man. Oh well, not that I would have anyway. I wasn’t looking at it from the unsettling hustling routine angle but from the angle that I didn’t even like the guy enough to claim to be in a relationship with him. I remember he was also so proud to show me off to his circle of friends who didn’t have a stable source of income like him. Whenever I was out of the country, he would deliberately call me when his friends were there just to convince them his girlfriend was in London or America. That wasn’t attractive at all. It only made me want to not see him again. But you see, I had met him through a friend and I didn’t want to insult him which I would have easily done. I didn’t want to hurt from friend. But the day my father, while having a Saturday gist, asked me if I was seeing anyone and I explained to him in an uninterested tone, he wanted to understand what the problem was. I told him what ‘Nonso’ had claimed to be doing and he was so scared he said, thank God you are not interested. Cut the ties. That was easy for me to do, even easier to have as excuse for my friend who had introduced us. Really, how does a man live on circumstantial living and hope to settle down with a decent woman? Those you slave in the offices still have their bad financial situations, talk less of mediocre hustling? Seriously Nonso, get a life! ============================================== At first glance, Buki Alamu seems quiet. After a while, you might think she’s just a plain snob, but those who are close to her know she’s a lovable lady. Her children think she’s a super mom. Her husband thinks . . .

People always talk about it. “It is not difficult to find a wife; there are many beautiful women out there. It is not like I am ready; I am not the perfect version of what I would like to be to my wife and family. “I want to work on myself until I am ready. By the time I am ready, if someone still wants to be with me, that would be great. “It is not like I am looking for a wife and cannot find one. There are lots of nice and beautiful ladies out there. I don’t think I am there yet. I am not in a hurry. “If time passes and nobody wants to marry me, then so be it but for now, I don’t feel I have worked on myself enough. “I don’t want a scenario where I would get married and my music or business would take me away and the next thing would be that my wife would start complaining that I am hardly around. Then people would start saying he doesn’t care about his family. I don’t need that type of talk in my life.“Let me be on my own, whenever I am ready, I am ready. I have a girlfriend; I have had different girlfriends in the last 10 years. I can’t just be single; I never said I was celibate. The relationship can break, she can leave me and go, and it is possible. “My other ex-girlfriends left me, they didn’t break my heart, they just moved on, some of them are married now, if they were still waiting for me, they won’t be married by now. “People have their personal agendas and it is understandable. For me, I am not in a hurry.”The talented music producer, also emphasised that he does not have a child outside wedlock, stressing that to the best of his knowledge, nobody has had a child for him.He said, “I didn’t hear anything about having a child outside wedlock. I don’t have a child yet or maybe somebody has a child for me somewhere and they don’t want me to know about it but I don’t know why they won’t want me to know about such a thing. “If anyone has a child for me, they should bring the child forward. To the best of my knowledge, I don’t have a child yet.”Speaking of his days with Mo-hits crew, Don Jazzy said that he never imagined that the day would come when the record label and gang would not exist anymore.He said, “When I created Mo-hits, I never imagined it won’t exist one day. Nobody gives birth to a child with the hope that the child would die. “I knew I was going to be doing music for as long as possible and thought Mo-hits was going to be around forever. But that is how life is.”Asked why he always exudes happiness on the social media despite negative comments from some fans at times, the 36-year-old said that he feels it was disrespectful to focus on negative comments all the time.He added, “I think it is disrespectful to the people that love what you do. If I post a picture, I would have thousands of comments. I don’t expect all of them to be positive. “It is disrespectful to give attention to the negative comments. I concentrate on the positive messages; I don’t give attention to trolls.”
