Serena Williams weds Alexis Ohanian in £2.6 million dress

American professional tennis player, Serena Williams, and Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian, on Thursday tied the nuptial knot in New Orleans.

Serena stormed the ‘Beauty and the Beast’ themed event in a £2.6 million custom-made Alexander McQueen ball gown.

The ceremony came weeks after the birth of their daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.
The star-studded wedding was witnessed by close friends and family members including award-winning pop star Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Ciara, Tina Knowles, Kelly Rowland and sister, Venus Williams.

Mr. Ohanian shared a photo of the wedding with a heartfelt message.
“@serenawilliams: You are the greatest of all time, not just in sport–I’m talking about as a mother and as a wife. I am so excited to write so many more chapters of our fairy tale together. And my whole life I didn’t even realize it, but I was waiting for this moment. And everything that I have done, everything that I am so proud of in my career, and in my life, for the last 34 years, pales in comparison to what we’re doing today. And I am so grateful, and I am so in love. 📸 @melbarlowandco@allanzepedaphotography”, he said.

Here’s Why We Think Iyanya Has Parted Ways With Mavin Records

Feelers emanating from different sources suggest that Nigerian popstar Iyanya might no longer be having a swell time at the Don Jazzy led Mavin Records as the label had allegedly failed to deliver on the promises made to the singer upon inking the deal.

In 2016, Iyanya had penned a record deal with Mavin records after he parted ways with Made Men Music Group which he co-owned with Ubi Franklin, leading fans to anticipate a wave of new music and a resurgence of the man that made Kukere a national anthem. At Mavin, he announced his arrival with Don Jazzy and Dr Sid on Up2Something.

One year later, it appears not all is well.

The rumours of a possible rift between Iyanya and Mavin were further fueled after the label known for always tweeting and celebrating their artistes failed to wish the singer a happy birthday when the singer clocked thirty one a few weeks ago; only Don Jazzy did on his personal handle.

Neither Iyanya or any member of Mavin Records have confirmed any of these speculations, but the singers latest move validates these speculations.
Iyanya had just released a new single titled ‘Iyanu (Holy Water)’ and the Mavin Records emblem was conspicuously missing from the artwork as it is also missing from the official music video which was released on Tuesday. The only logo that is visibly represented in the artwork and music video is that of Temple Management – a management company which he has been affiliated with since February.

           
This writer spoke to a Mavin representative who simply answered the queries with a one-liner: No comment.

Similarly, a close associate of Iyanya’s declined to speak officially on the matter. ‘We cannot say anything at this moment because the other camp (Mavin) has not yet revealed what the situation is so we’ll just observe for now,’ we were told.

Since joining Mavin Records, Iyanya has successfully released the Signature EP; an eight-track tape which made very little impact and he has also embarked on a European tour that ended in October.

However, Mavin Records had a lukewarm year by their own standards and may the reason for Iyanya’s discontentment: apart from a handful of singles, the label did not deliver major hits as they are known to do. Korede Bello‘s Belloved album came out earlier in the year but was overshadowed by hotter records. Tiwa Savage‘s Sugarcane has continued to make waves since its release only a few weeks ago but it is a far cry from a groundbreaking project.

Couple arrested for alleged kidnapping & selling 2-year old in Imo

A couple in Imo state has been arrested for allegedly selling at least two children – one which is theirs and the other, a 2-year old they kidnapped from his parents, Punch‘s Chidiebube Okeoma is reporting.

They were arrested by the Anti-Kidnapping unit of the Imo State Police Command and were paraded on Wednesday by the state Police Public Relations Officer SP Andrew Enwerem.

Enwerem disclosed that the couple – Ifeanyi Anyanwu and Amarachi Ugorji – allegedly stole the child and sold him for N500,000.
“On August 28, 2017, Ifeanyi Anyanwu, 23; and Amarachi Ugorji,18, conspired and kidnapped (name withheld), who is two years and six months old, from his parents in Umuozu- Uguiri in the Isiala Mbano LGA. 
The two suspects, after the kidnap, started demanding ransom from the parents of the child. When the parents of the kidnapped child could not provide the money, they opted to sell the child to one Ifenyinwa Duru, 39, at the cost of N500,000. Duru, in turn, resold the child to one Chidinma Emmanuel, 42, at the cost of N700,000. 
The two buyers were arrested in Aba following painstaking investigation, while the child was rescued unhurt and has since been reunited with the legitimate parents by the command. 
The suspects have confessed to the crime and investigation has been concluded. The syndicate will soon be charged to court. 
The Commissioner of Police Chris Ezike, has instructed all heads of the tactical units of the command to go all out against those who trade in human beings, especially children, who have done nothing wrong except that they were born into a society that has lost its values,” Punch quoted Enwerem as saying.
Chidinma Emmanuel, who is the second buyer, said she was desperate to have a male child after her husband’s death, adding that the desperation led her into the crime.

The couple told Punch that they had sold their first child on credit to someone in Port Harcourt for N200,000. The case is being investigated.

Punch reports that Amarachi Ugorji is expecting another child soon.
