why the first ever papa ajasco stopped playing the role

Image
The interview started with him: * are you PAPA AJASCO? *
No, I'm no longer Papa Ajasco because I'm no more doing Papa Ajasco. In other words, I'm no longer playing the role of Papa Ajasco. It's another person that is playing the role now. So, I can always refer to myself as former Papa Ajasco.
But why did you give up on the role?
A lot of people have asked me this question. Well, it's not as if I gave up on the role. The owner of the job took his job from me. He said he didn't want to use me any more.
Were you not playing the role well?
I was, but what happened was that we went to Benin, myself, Mama Ajasco and Boy Alinco, where we attended a new year party for children somewhere in Benin. We took pictures with the children, had some handshakes with them because you know, children love to see Papa Ajasco and I promised the organiser of the party that I would be coming with some of my colleagues. The party was in collaboration with one company in Be…

the reason why microsoft bought LINKEDIN

Let’s assume, you’re a business productivity consultant assigned to a new client. What do think would be the best way to get up to speed on their organizational culture and needs?
Simple: You talk to a lot of people. You find out about their backgrounds, their roles, their interests. You read what they’ve written. You listen in on their conversations.

Let’s say you want to be a business productivity consultant to every organization on the face of the earth. What’s the best way to learn everything about how people work, all at once?
It’s simple. Swallow LinkedIn.
That’s just what Microsoft did, because that’s just what Microsoft wants to be.

Beyond the low-hanging fruit.   There are a lot of good reasons for Microsoft to acquire the professional social network, even at a $26.2 billion price tag. Microsoft’s enterprise collaboration stack has giant holes in the areas of expertise location, contact management and content publishing that SharePoint has never really been abl…

As for TUCSON, AZ (Tucson promiseCRIB') -
Students in the Tucson Unified School District will get the chance to learn a second language this school year.
For the first time, the district’s dual language program is expanding to the east side.
Previously, the dual language program had only been available at schools on the southwest side.
Some of the 2,100 dual language students had to be bused to one of the 10 schools that offer the program if they wanted to be a part of it.
Dual Language at TUSD has had its challenges over the years.
District leaders said it’s been a struggle to find qualified teachers who can really immerse students in the Spanish language.


The program at TUSD was audited earlier this year, and one of the things that was found was that the district could do a better job at implementing the program.
“One of the things that was missing, is that we didn’t really have a plan, a whole plan from kinder all the way to high school,” said Mark Alvarez, language acqu…

The discovery of River Niger: Historie from nairaland blog 2007

Who really discovered River Niger? We were taught while in the primary school that Mungo Park discovered 'River Niger'. But is that really true?
*********
When you say somebody
'discover' something,Has he brought it to the knowledge of people and those people did not know the existence of that thing. It is like somebody telling me that the stream where my mother and grandmother fetched water, was 'discovered' yesterday by somebody residing in
another village about 500 kilometers away. So those people in New Bussa, Lokoja, Jebba who fetched, cooked and washed from the river did
not know that the river exists before Mungo Park came.

What do you think?.

Jada Pinkett Smith and Willow Smith Had the Coolest Mother-Daughter Date in History, at Paris' Fashion Week

While you might get excited when your mom
offers to take you to the mall or buy you
groceries, Willow Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith's
mother-daughter outings are a little different.
The striking pair arrived at the Chanel fashion
show during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday and
exuded levels of cool that were almost
otherworldly. Willow channeled Taylor Swift's
"Bad Blood" music video with her badass,
skintight, black and gray jumpsuit, while mom
Jada kept things casual in a breezy white dress
shirt, jeans, and a tweed blazer. The pair sat
front row as Karl Lagerfeld's best strutted down
the runway and later posed for photographers
outside.

President Obama Accidentally Reveals Daughter Sasha Has a Secret Twitter Account

President Barack Obama joined Hillary Clinton
on the campaign trail for the first time on
Tuesday, where he spoke in support of the
presumptive Democratic party nominee -- and
revealed his daughter Sasha has a Twitter
account.
WATCH: Michelle, Sasha and Malia Obama
Coordinate Outfits in Morocco, Look Incredibly
Chic!
The big news came accidentally, as the president
took a dig at Donald Trump over his
unprecedented (to put it lightly) use of Twitter
during the election.
"Everybody can tweet, but nobody actually
knows what it takes to do the job until you've
sat behind the desk," Obama declared. "I mean,
Sasha tweets, but she doesn't think that she
thereby should be sitting behind the desk!"
Cue the internet freak out.
While there's no word yet on what the 15-year-
old's handle might be, Twitter can't get enough
of the idea that the youngest Obama has a
Twitter account.

The records reported that: a Doctors performs the first- ever U.S. penis transplant

The recipient was 64-year-old Thomas
Manning, who had to amputate part of his
penis in 2012 after suffering from penile
cancer.
The surgery took 15 hours over May 8 and
9, taking time to match up the vascular
and neural structures of the donor penis
and the recipient’s body. And before that,
researchers from multiple departments of
the hospital worked for more than three
years on the concept. The goals of a penis
transplant are to reconstruct the
appearance, make the urinary process
work, and then possibly regain sexual
function.
The hospital said doctors were “cautiously
optimistic” that Manning will regain all
the function he lost from cancer.
According to the New York Times,
Manning had been left with an inch-long
“stump” after cancer and felt hopeless
when it came to relationships with women.
There has only been one other successful
penis transplant in the world; in 2014, a
South African transplant recipient fathered
a child.

Police arrested a Pastor who buried men alive in his church foundation

Police on
Friday arrested suspected Pastor who
caused a stir when three dead bodies were
discovered under the foundation of his
new church building in Enugu State.
The strange discovery of dead bodies
buried in shallow graves under the
foundation of a popular church located at
the Ugwuaji area along the Enugu-Port
Harcourt Expressway, in January, 2016, has
caused serious outrage amongst the
residents with the police vowing to do
everything possible to bring the run away
pastor to book.
It was later discovered that the three
bodies found under the church foundation
were members of the Tricycle Riders
Association in the state, who had been
declared missing earlier by the Keke Riders’
body.
The pastor is currently cooling his heels in
the cell of the State Police Command.

Peter okoye said this

He had a recent chat with HipTV where
the star says he is a very creative person
and was responsible for the structure of
PSquare’s tours.
According to him:
I don’t think there are so much challenges
because even on tour as P Square, I was
the one doing the whole structure and
trying to get things done properly .I will
say it in front of the camera .I do a lot.
But for me, there is no challenge because
I say the things that I know .I say the
things that I let people know.I’ve been a
creative person. I’m a very very creative
person but people still look at me as a
dancer. It hurts but at the end of the day,
I’m still a very creative person.
What do you think about this?

'My wife must have her own money and should be ambitious” –:Banky W

“I didn’t react all the while because it is a
private affair. I think that one of my
problems with the world today is that we

in not letting the world know about your
dirty laundry. So i am still not going to
comment on the issue but i love both of
them dearly and as a true friend, i am

possible.”

hurry to walk the aisle. I think people
don’t give much attention to marriage but
the ceremonies and I am not going to let
that push me until I am ready….my kind of
woman is someone that is beautiful, she
has to be beautiful because that is what
will first attract me to her and she must be
God fearing, she must have a sense of
humor and be independent. She must love
music, she mustn’t necessarily know how to
cook cos i enjoy cooking myself, she
should be ambitious and have a career
and have her money, no on…
