Will Smith Finally Responds About His Son Wearing Women’s Clothes

Jaden Smith, son of actor Will Smith and wife/actress Jada Pinkett-Smith, continues to challenge gender norms and that’s got people talking about him and his family.


In the latest photos released in Teen Vogue and on his social media accounts, the teen is wearing what many would consider female clothes.

Now, according to BET, his father Will Smith has finally issued some answers as to what he thinks of his teenage son’s penchant for wearing lady’s clothes.

Smith reportedly at first joked about Jaden and said that he and his wife may have made a “mistake” in how they raised the now 17-year-old.

Then the actor and one-time rapper got serious.

“You have to be comfortable doing things that you could fail [at],” Smith said. “Jaden is 100 percent fearless, he will do anything. As a parent it’s scary, it’s really terrifying, but he is completely willing to live and die by his artistic decisions and he doesn’t concern himself with what people think.”

Smith said that he and his wife Jada try to give their kids their freedom, but that the rules are a little different for Willow – Jaden’s younger sister – because she’s a girl.

Oh well, i guess there is a Denrele in every family...

Meet Khadija Khatoon, The Woman Who Has No Face (Graphic Photos)

If anyone ever calls you ugly, just remember Khadija and thank your God because you are beautiful.

A 21-year-old woman has her face covered with a mass of skin following a rare condition known as Neurofibromatosis.

Born in Kolkata, West Bengal, Eastern India, to Muslim parents, Khadija Khatoon, had lived all her life without knowing how she actually looks.

Although a local official launched a campaign for money with which she would be possibly treated, doctors have told her family there was nothing they could do about it and any attempts to perform surgery could have killed he.

However, despite the distorted facial features, Khatoon says she is happy with the way she is and lives as she is.

She said: “I’m made this way and I accept it graciously.

“I do what I can. If this is how I’m meant to be then I live with it. It’s not a matter of coping, I just live as I am.”

Dr Anirban Deep Banerjee said  Neurofibromatosis is a condition that makes sufferers prone to tumours.

He said: “There’s a possibility she has a tumour inside her face which could be fatal.

“If she’s willing we could need to do a lot of tests to determine how successful surgery could be.” , he says.

Photos: Mercy Johnson’s Husband Gets King’s Welcome As He Arrives Hometown

Prince Odi Okojie, the husband of Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson returned to his hometown in Uromi, Edo state yesterday February 8.

Prince Odi Okojie who says he is being persuaded by his people to fight for PDP’s deputy governor’s slot in the coming election in the state was received like a king, the people trooped out to greet him as he rode around the town.

His wife however wasn’t with him in his motorcade.

Prince Odi Okojie’s warm reception is an indication that he will be vying for a political office in the next gubernatorial election.

On January 25, 2016 it was reported that Mercy Johnson’s husband would be vying for the position of deputy governor of Edo state under the platform of the People Democratic Party.

Later in the day he released a statement clarifying his political ambitions.

“My attention has been drawn to various campaigns on-going online about the upcoming election in Edo State later this year

“The campaign mainly by young people (youths) and students from Edo State and my local government, is that I should vie for the position of Deputy Governor in the state. This is based on the premise that since the party zoned deputy governorship slot to Edo Central where I am originally from, I should represent various interests in the area.

“This is a gesture I appreciate; it is a good thing for people to recognize your good work and want you to serve especially when one has been supportive without being in government.

“I want to make it clear that the position of deputy governorship is not a position one campaigns for, the party leaders alongside members chose who flies the party’s ticket alongside the governorship candidate. However, I am available to serve in whatever capacity the party wants me to serve.  I am a loyal party member," he said in the statement

#NigeriansAreNotCriminals; Presidency Reacts to Brouhaha Over Telegraph Interview

The State House has described as misconstrued, the various interpretations of President Muhammadu Buhari's comments in an interview granted to the UK's Telegraph newspaper on February 5, 2016.

 In a statement released in Abuja on Tuesday, February 9, Malam Garba Shehu (Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity) noted that the wave of negative reactions to the President's remarks about the reputation of Nigerians abroad was as a result of an incomplete understanding of President Buhari's point.

"President Buhari was asked about the flood of migrants from Nigeria and the fraudulent applications for asylum put in by people desperate to leave their motherland at any cost, and it was this question that elicited his response," he said, encouraging Nigerians to avail themselves of a full text of the interview, which has now been made available on the Telegraph's website.

Malam Shehu added that it was preposterous for anyone to imagine that the President of Nigeria would describe all the citizens of the country he leads as criminals, when he himself is a Nigerian--obviously not a criminal--and when there are many Nigerians of honest living making their country proud all over the world.

"Unfortunately, there are also Nigerians giving their country a bad image abroad, and it is to those Nigerians that the President referred in his comments," he said, adding that people may play politics and online games with the President's comments, but the fact of the matter remains that Nigeria's reputation abroad has been severely damaged by her own citizens.

"These Nigerians who leave their country to go and make mischief on foreign shores have given the rest of us a bad reputation that we daily struggle to overcome."

Malam Shehu called attention to the many efforts of President Buhari to clean up the image of Nigeria, such as the war on corruption, stating that acknowledging you have a problem is the first step to preferring a solution.

"President Buhari is very aware of the problems the people of Nigeria face both at home and abroad, and he is not shying away from admitting them even as he focuses on solutions to bring them to a permanent end."

Disrespect for the office of the Governor! Dakuku Peterside, be warned - PDP

Read the press statement below...
Despite the glamour that characterizes the game of politics, it still has a bitter side no doubt. This bitter side or better put, are the pains and regrets that follow losing the election. Of course, nobody goes into any election to lose but one thing is certain. There must be a loser no matter the degree of optimism. While the winner smiles home with victory, the loser shies away like an accused sentenced for a guilt never committed.
The winner however, is expected to be magnanimous in victory while the loser notwithstanding the pain of his loss is expected to exhibit the spirit of sportsmanship since there is always a second chance or another opportunity.

It’s however regrettable that some persons particularly, the 2015 governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, seem not to understand this simple political theory. If he does, he will not be as stupefied, extremely embittered and seemingly berserk as he appears to be since the January 27th Supreme Court judgement that upheld the election of Governor Nyesom Wike as a true reflection of the April 11, 2015 voting in the State.

 Dakuku Peterside, perhaps, yet to recover from the nightmare of occupying an office he has no capacity to direct, an illusion placed on him by no other than his godfather, an equally deluded Chibuike Amaechi, without recourse to commonsense has continued to castigate the executive governor of the State, Chief Barr Nyesom Wike, calling him all manner of names as though we live in a lawless society.

It’s on record that Mr. Dakuku Peterside had before now described Governor Wike as infantile, insulting the Governor at the slightest opportunity unrestrained and uncautioned. Same Dakuku Peterside on Tuesday, February 09, 2016 at a press conference in APC State Secretariat made rude denigrating allegations against the person of the Governor and most regrettably, putting words into the mouth of His Excellency by recalling and quoting utterances which according to him were those of Gov Wike.

There is no gainsaying the fact that the only reason for all this is to incite the innocent admirers and supporters of the people’s governor including the presidency and no few members of the APC who are impressed with Wike’s marvelous developmental strives in so short a time against him. It’s also shocking that Dakuku Peterside who had earlier applauded the Nigerian judiciary as worthy of its name, respect and pride of place accorded it is now castigating the Supreme Court as parading conscienceless people who trade on justice for monetary gains (see his press statement at the conference).

Dakuku Peterside whose moral bankruptcy is common knowledge in the State with unmentionable nauseating recent past also has the effrontery to insult and despise the former State Governor (Golden) Sir Dr. Peter Odili and his wife, Honourable Justice Mary Odili of the Supreme Court. Exposing his shallow-mindedness, Mr Dakuku Peterside could not remember when he boasted on January 7, 2016, 20 days before the Supreme Court Judgment that there would be a tsunami in the State very soon, over the Supreme Court expected judgment, while celebrating the nullification of some PDP members of the National Assembly and the order for re-run elections for those offices perhaps, thinking same fate will befall Gov Wike. This is most unfortunate.

We have feigned ignorance of Dakuku Peterside’s ranting, disrespect for constituted authorities and unbridled lawlessness simply because we thought he was yet to recover from the shock of having been deceived by Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, who used him to create the impression that APC was alive in the State and on account of which he was rewarded with an underserved appointment as a minister. But it has been established that Dakuku Peterside is hell-bent on causing disaffection and crisis in the State by trading on outright lies, propaganda and blackmail.

This is dangerous politicking. We therefore want to warn this political neophyte, Dakuku Peterside to caution himself, tread softly on the path of respect for the rule of law, civility and rectitude or be treated like a tout and political jobber he is. Even if, without conceding, Governor Wike had described election riggers as common criminals that deserve no better treatment than other criminals, what is wrong with that honest statement except if Dakuku Peterside is one and rather than be handled as a criminal wishes to be applauded and pampered like a king but God forbid.

He is therefore warned for the last time to show some decorum and stop insulting the office of the Governor as the PDP and the authorities will not and cannot continue to watch him despise the sacrosanctity of that office. A word, they say is enough for the wise.
