KEFEE Laid To Rest In Painful Tears

The remains of the late popular gospel singer, Kefee, were finally laid to rest in her home town, Okpara Inland of Ethiope East Local Government, Delta State on Friday, as so many people could not control their emotions.

Most of the mourners, dressed in black tee-shirts with Kefee's picture printed on them, carried placards and posters of the late singer as they trooped to the burial site.

Before the interment, a homecoming service was held in her honour at Akpevweoghene Educational Centre, Okpara Inland of Ethiope East Local Government, Delta State where family, colleagues, friends and fans gathered to pay their last respect to the late singer.

Her remains, in a white casket, were first taken to one of the classrooms in the school where some pastors prayed for the repose of her soul. Thereafter, the casket was brought to an open field for the lying in state ceremony before she was buried.

NE gathered that her widower, Teddy Don-Momoh, dressed in white attire, couldn't say much all through the ceremony as tears kept rolling down his eyes. Our correspondent learnt that her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Obareki, stayed away from the burial as their custom demanded that parents should not see the corpse of their children.

Some Nigerian entertainers who travelled to Delta State for the burial ceremony include Tony Okoroji, Daddy Showkey, Azzezat, Aity, I go dye, Princess and Nikky Laoye.

Born Irikefe Obareki, Kefee passed on in the United States of America last June after being in a coma in an undisclosed hospital for few weeks.

Kefee would be remembered for her popular song, Branama and Kokoroko, which earned her so many awards.

Previously married to a music director, Alec Godwin, Kefee got married again to a Lagos-based on-air-personality with Star FM, Teddy Don-Momoh, in 2012.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
