Gwen Stefani turns down Blake Shelton's marriage proposal

Blake Shelton has proposed to Gwen Stefani, but his fellow recording superstar turned down his offer. The couple have been together for six months. The Voice coaches both divorced their respective spouses last year.
RadarOnline.com reported Shelton stashed a $1.2 million engagement ring in a box of Kentucky Friend Chicken during a recent outdoor picnic, but the surprise didn't get the reaction he hoped for from Stefani.
"Gwen was very touched, but said she had to wait to make sure it was right for the kids," an insider told the media outlet about the singer who has three young sons -- Kingston, 10, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2 -- with her ex-husband Gavin Rossdale.
Stefani and Shelton made headlines earlier this week when they performed together at the Billboard Music Awards.

KeKe Palmer Denies Rumors That She’s Replacing Tamar On “The Real”

Since fans learned that Tamar Braxton will not be returning to “The Real,” the burning question has been whether or not the singer will be replaced and who that replacement might be. Recently, a source told our sister site, Bossip, that producers have their hearts set on 22-year-old actress KeKe Palmer as a replacement.
“The person who’s going to replace Tamar is KeKe Palmer,” says the source. “Rachel produced the pilot for Telepictures with KeKe Palmer last summer. She likes KeKe and KeKe, of course, wants to do another talk show. She’s on the fast track to being in that role.”
 Considering KeKe’s experience with hosting a TV show and her history with Telepictures, the rumors did not seem farfetched; however, KeKe says that this is not the case. On Saturday, the “Just KeKe” host took to Twitter to dispel the report.

Quiana M Shamsid-Deen: Where are the materials from?

I came across Quiana M Shamsid-Deen comment on social media this morning, definitely worth sharing.  Something interesting and should be open for discussion.  "My only concern is a few African designers are getting their fabrics/cloth/materials from China. (Though many African countries also get their materials from China. Higher end from Holland) We are wearing and creating African inspired garments, but African countries and the people are not benefitting from it. Which is why I make sure to ask, "where are the materials from?" Just to begin that dialogue to encourage us to work with the continent and build our communities together. Bridging the gap."Quiana

President Buhari’s Democracy day speech

My compatriots, it is one year today since our administration came into office. It has been a year of triumph, consolidation, pains and achievements. By age, instinct and experience, my preference is to look forward, to prepare for the challenges that lie ahead and rededicate the administration to the task of fixing Nigeria.
But I believe we can also learn from the obstacles we have overcome and the progress we made thus far, to help strengthen the plans that we have in place to put nigeria back on the path of progress.
We affirm our belief in democracy as the form of government that best assures the active participation and actual benefit of the people. Despite the many years of hardship and disappointment the people of this nation have proved inherently good, industrious tolerant, patient and generous.   The past years have witnessed huge flows of oil revenues. From 2010 average oil prices were $100 per barrel. But economic and security conditions were deteriorating. W…
