Lil Wayne, who is set to go on tour with Drake this
year, recently revealed what fans can expect from
the Young Money duo.
“The plan is just going – since, thank God, we’ve
been so successful – just going back and forth
with our hits, getting the crowd to go crazy,”
Wayne says in an interview with MTV. “And then
just finally hitting the stage together and going
crazy. I think it’s something like a…It’s a battle
type thing.”
When asked who would win the battle, Lil Wayne
said one of them has an edge.
“I give the good guy the edge,” Wayne says.
Drake is also set to appear on Tha Carter V. While
fans have heard the duo on “Believe Me,” Wayne
says there’s more to come from the twosome.
“He’s on the album way more than [that],” he
says. “He’s on a few other joints.”
Beyond Drake’s appearances on the album, Lil
Wayne says Nicki Minaj is also scheduled to
appear on Tha Carter V. Meanwhile, Wayne says
he is also set to join Minaj on The Pink Print.
“It would not be albums without them
[collaborations],” he says.


New JK Rowling story shows Harry Potter at 34

LONDON: Fictional boy wizard Harry Potter made
his first appearance in seven years on Monday,
featuring as a nearly 34-year-old with grey hairs
in a new short story by author JK Rowling.
In an article on her “Pottermore” website that is
supposedly written by a gossip columnist, Harry
and his friends reunite for a tournament of the
broomstick-riding game quidditch.
Harry’s redheaded friend Ron Weasley is said to
be thinning on top while Ron’s wife Hermione and
Harry’s wife Ginny all feature in the 1,500-word
Millionaire author Rowling meanwhile gives a
teaser when she writes that Harry sports a new
scar on his cheek to go with the lightning-shaped
one on his forehead.
“About to turn 34, there are a couple of threads
of silver in the famous Auror’s black hair, but he
continues to wear the distinctive round glasses
that some might say are better suited to a style-
deficient twelve-year-old,” the story says.
There is a further hint of things to come when the
story asks whether the “chosen one” is
“embroiled in fresh mysteries that will one day
explode upon us all, plunging us into a new age
of terror and mayhem.”
The piece is written as a gossip column by Rita
Skeeter of the Daily Prophet, a character from the
Potter books who draws on the author’s own vocal
criticisms of tabloid journalism.
The article is part of a series about the “2014
Quidditch Cup” — a nod to the football World Cup
in Brazil — that are set to appear on Pottermore, a
website focusing on the boy wizard that launched
in 2011.
The final article will be published on Friday, and
will see Ginny Potter, now a journalist, cover the
cup final, between Brazil and Bulgaria.
Rowling, who has sold more than 450 million
copies of the Harry Potter books and seen them
made into a string of hit films, has been keeping
busy since the seventh and final novel in the
series was published in 2007.
She published her first adult novel, “The Casual
Vacancy”, to mixed reviews in 2012 and has also
released two big-selling crime novels under the
nom de plume Robert Galbraith.
She announced in September that she will make
her screenwriting debut by penning a series of
spin-off films set in the Potter world, starting with
“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”.

Henceforth, only persons with the valid ID card of
the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) will be allowed
to take part in professional movies in Rivers State,
this was the verdict by the leadership of the guild
in the state.
This decision was reached on Saturday, June 28,
2014 in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Secretary of AGN in the state, Barthelomew
Gerald while addressing journalists in the state,
said “henceforth, only AGN ID card carriers are to
partake in professional movies. You can now be

ID. Our ID now comes in association with

The move, according to what we scooped, is to
ensure that members of the guild get involved in
movie jobs.

Popular Comedian’s Marriage Crashes After 6 Days; Wife Accused Of Adultery, Pregnant For Boss Story by

According to a report by Yes International
Magazine, the marriage of a popular comedian
ended just six days after he got married to his
pretty wife. Here is the full report by the top
Lagos-based magazine.
Gospel comedian, Edobor Charles, aka Edo
Charles, is currently in court with his wife, Vera
Adiche, from Ibusa, Delta State, over some messy
marital issues. YES INTERNATIONAL! exclusively
gathered that the couple who tied the knots at
The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Victoria
Island, Lagos, on November 27, 2010, lived
together for only 6 days before calling it quits!
And as would be expected, allegations and
counter allegations have been emanating from
both camps. While the woman accused the man
of neglect and also not supporting her music
career, the man is alleging that she is an
Specifically, he accused her of sleeping with her
boss, Anesi Igharue, leader of the popular Sharp
Sources who have been following their unfolding
divorce mess even alleged that Vera is currently
pregnant for Amesi. Also, that he has rented a flat
for her in Jakande Estate, Lekki, Lagos. Anesi and
his band performs every Wednesday at Soul
Lounge, Lekki and at Crescendo, on Isaac John
Street, Ikeja GRA, Lagos every Friday.
One of the biggest bands in country, they are
regularly busy at high profile events. From
Agenebode, in Edo State, Anesi has five
daughters – two from his first wife and three from
his second, Blossom.
The second wife is also alleged to have moved out
of their Lekki home over this raging adultery
allegation. Edo Charles and Vera, 35, met at a
church programme in Surulere, Lagos over a
decade ago. They courted for 10 years before
walking down the aisle in 2010.
Exactly 6 days after their wedding, they had a
serious disagreement, the woman moved out of
their Surulere, Lagos home and returned 21 days
later with two bouncers, her brother and others
to pack all her belongings. Efforts to reconcile
them by concerned well wishers and family
members did not yield any fruitful results until
sometime in 2011 when she filed for divorce. The
matter is still pending in court.
Edo Charles, a popular gospel comedian, is also in
his 30s. Slim and fair skinned, the rib cracker is
the creator of Enter The Laughter With Edo
Charles, a free comedy programme which he
takes round the churches to spread the gospel.
Contacted on Thursday, July 3, 2014, the Benin
City, Edo State born laughter merchant said he
didn’t have anything to say. “I have no
comments”. Later in the day when we also got in
touch with Anesi, he denied it, saying: “I’m just
hearing this from you. I don’t even understand
this at all. I don’t know anything about any lady
called Vera. Yes, I’m the leader of the band, but
I’m surprised at this your investigation because I
don’t know how much of a public person I am. I
don’t even know this Vera you are talking about”,
he repeated one more time.
On her part, Vera was very furious when we got in
touch with her at exactly 12:18pm. Hear her:
“How can you call to tell me such things? I’ve
been working for Sharp Band for 8 years now and
it’s now that you are saying such things. You are
an investigative journalist, when you get your
answers right on the question you asked, then
you can call me back. This does not make any
sense to me. I don’t have time for all these
games. If someone has sent you on this, go and
tell him or her that it won’t work. What kind of
rubbish is this?”
Lastly, YES INTERNATIONAL! put a call through to
Blossom, Anesi’s estranged wife. And her
response was not only shocking, but also straight
to the point: “Yes, the story is true! They are lying
that they don’t know each other or for claiming
that they don’t know what you are saying. You
can verify from other members of the band as
well. Actually, I don’t know how you got this
information, but you must have done your
investigation very well before coming up with this
because it is absolutely true. This Vera issue has
been there for long. It is an open secret. I’m
separated from my husband as a result of this.
But what do you expect both of them to say?
They would lie to you of course. I was married to
Anesi in 2004. That was about 10 years ago and
got separated from him about 2 years ago. I had
three children for him and he had two other
issues before we got married, making five
children that are under my care. Anyway, I’m at
work now. I will call you back

Transport companies get high-tech boost from apps

Need a chauffeured vehicle for a
special occasion?
Now, customers can hire a Mercedes Benz or a
13-seater minibus like the Toyota Hiace, using a
new mobile app launched on Tuesday.
Called GrabCar, the app requires users to enter
their pick-up point and destination. The app will
then inform the user how much it is likely to cost.
For example, the fee for booking a saloon car
starts from S$38 for a distance of less than four
kilometres. For a distance of more than four
kilometres, the fee is S$50. Between midnight to
6am, there is a S$10 surcharge.
Lim Kell Jay, general manager of GrabTaxi &
GrabCar Singapore, said: “There’s still the unmet
demand for taxis during peak hours or when it
rains, so a service like GrabCar would be able to
help alleviate and meet some of these demands…
And in Singapore, commuters generally are able
to afford paying a little bit more for a premium
In June, major cities in Europe saw massive
protests by taxi drivers against car-sharing
services offered by apps such as Uber. They
voiced doubts about the reliability of such
services and raised concerns about safety.
GrabCar said it has measures in place to address
such concerns.
GrabCar works with limousine operators and
company owners whose drivers have the relevant
commercial driving licence. It has also sought
guidance from regulators to ensure the safety of
its passengers.
Stringent checks are also a must for the company
behind the application, GoGoVan.
Launched in June, the app allows customers to
arrange for deliveries via motorcycles, lorries or
Charges start from S$8 for motorcycle delivery,
and varies, depending on the vehicle chosen,
distance to be covered and weight of the items.
Steven Lam, co-founder of GoGoVan, said: “For all
the registered vehicles under the GoGoVan
network, they have to come to our office and we
have a staff member go down and inspect the
“(This is) to make sure that it is the same person
that owns the vehicle, drives the vehicle, to
ensure quality of service and that nothing goes
wrong. If something happens, we can then track
down the driver.”
Currently, more than 1,500 drivers have
registered with the company.
