N.B-Due to a comment by one of the readers,i had to remove the picture of the deceased earlier posted with the story.What you want is just what we would do.Nothing was done in bad faith.It is just a way of embellishing stories with pictures.Thank you


  1. Hello Niyi, I do not know the rules of using such pictures in Nigeria but I have to say that I find this extremely disrespectful. Also, you should have put a warning up for those that come on the blog.

    Couldn't you have used a picture of when he was alive?

    This is extremely disturbing. I do not know how people relate to death in Nigeria but for me, this was not done in good taste at all, that is my honest opinion.

  2. Did The Late Tunmise Adekunle attend All Saints Anglican School Yaba. Please put a picture of him up on you site.

Just like the case of Anita Hogan, the Nollywood actress, they both decided to take pictures naked.Some of the photos were e-mailed to us but we decided to post just two so that we won't 'corrupt'your eyes.
