Actress Maryam Charles Rebukes Men Supporting S3x Doll

She tells them “wise up and be a true man not a ‘doll’ man”

image

Delectable Nollywood Actress and filmmaker, Maryam Charles has presented her own opinion on the trending sex doll topic, and she is of the school of thought that the dolls can never take the place of a “real girlfriend.” And broke guys cannot even afford the sex doll.

In a post she made on her Instagram today, Maryam Charlessays the sex dolls are not even meant for guys that are not loaded as each costs a whooping N800,000.

Maryam Charles also stated the things that a real girlfriend can do, but a doll can’t

She says:

“To all the men celebrating the new s*x doll and throwing shades at women, this is for you.

A responsible man will not go on social media to celebrate man-made doll because it has been carefully designed to have intercourse, y’all need to grow up and stand up to your responsibilities.

Even the doll that is making you happy is not designed for broke guys! It’s cost about N800,000 without the addition of the maintenance cost, yet you feel this is a better replacement to your girlfriends? What madness!

If you want to wake up, have a lady next to you and stay happy, you have to take good care of the lady, that’s when she can happily have sex with you and be meaningful. There are lots of things sex doll will never do for you, its high time we started facing reality with ourselves.

Will the doll give you a kiss when you’re leaving home for office?

Will the doll call you to check up on you during office hours?

Will the doll give you a welcome back kiss?

If you’re disturbed, will the doll advice you?

The list continues like that… wise up and be a true man not a ‘doll’ man”

Taylor Swift stalker Frank Andrew Hoover is facing new charges after prosecutors say they uncovered a new batch of creepy emails he had sent to the singer’s father, Scott. Frank, 39, reportedly threatened to kill Taylor and her family in the emails.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that Frank sent the emails to Scott between May 2015 and October 2016. According to the 122-page indictment, he wrote in one email, “Decided that we are going to end all the Swifts on one day because I can’t stand that virus s**t your daughter spread.”

Other threatening sentences in the emails included, “The evil family of devils: Scott, Austin, Taylor, Andrew. Sincerely, the end real son of god,” “This article is not a joke and is why god is going to burn them into the desert for me,” and “Go to hell, Swift.” Frank allegedly also told Scott, “Enjoy the brain aneurysms and death.”

Frank was arrested in November 2016 after he allegedly violated a restraining order Taylor had taken out against him by tailing her when she was in Texas. According to police docs, Frank was following the 28-year-old songstress after her concert at a Formula 1 race in October.

The night of the show, he allegedly followed her motorcade from the track to the airport where a private jet was waiting for Taylor and her parents. Her bodyguards told police Frank got within 25 to 50 feet of Taylor’s car, and when they asked what he was doing there, he said he was there to get a pic and “possibly accompany Taylor wherever she goes.”

Frank allegedly also sent emails to Taylor’s dad from August 28 until October 27. One of the creepy emails read, “Without her, I walk the earth alone forever and she’ll continue to experience failed relationships that break her heart.”

Recall that in 2017, Air Craftsman Kalu Bernard was found guilty by a 10-man Nigeria Air Force (NAF) General Court Martial over the killing of his girl friend and colleague, Solape Oladipupo, has sentenced him to death by hanging.

Jealous Bernard, 21, had shot and killed Solape when he allegedly caught her in the arms of another man at the Air Force Base, Makurdi on March 12, 2017.

Military sources indicated that Bernard, after shooting his double-dating girlfriend, was overpowered by the lover while trying to shoot him.

Flight Lt. M. A. Umoh, Judge Advocate of the court, in a 70-page narration of the case that lasted through the early hours of Wednesday, listed the eight-count charges as murder, failure to perform military duty, housebreaking and impersonation.

Others included loss of service property, disobedience of service order and prejudice to service discipline.

“The accused has pleaded not guilty to all the charges, but the prosecution has proved its case against him beyond a reasonable doubt,” he stated.

In his judgement, President of the court, Group Capt. Elisha Bindul, who said that the accused was found guilty in six, out of the eight-count charges preferred against him, sentenced him to death by hanging.

He, however, said that the sentence was subject to the confirmation of the conveying authority.

The defence counsel, Abimiku Ewuga, had earlier prayed the court to temper justice with mercy in its sentence, especially as the accused was a first time offender and bread winner of his family.

Trace Denies Money For Video Play Allegations, Reveals Video Selection Guidelines

image

Contrary to recent insinuation making the rounds, the management of leading African music, youth and entertainment youth, Trace has come out strongly to correct the impression that it demands money for getting videos on its channels.

In an unprecedented move, Trace, has revealed its music video selection criteria to the public. Trace has the widest distribution of any music channel in Africa and is the number one or two rated channel in close to 50 countries across the continent with a five-channel brand, namely Trace Naija, Trace Mziki, Trace Urban, Trace Africa and Trace Toca.

Trace Naija is number One in Nigeria and Ghana with over around One million viewers a day. Trace’s channels are the most highly prized platform by artists and getting a video on Trace is considered to be an endorsement that an artist has “blown”. Many artists testify that their Pan African fame is in part thanks to exposure on Trace’s channels across The Continent.

 “For years, despite constant communication, there has been speculation by artistes and the music industry at large about what it really takes to get a music video on Trace channels. We understand the demand because artistes know that getting their video on high rotation on Trace could change their life and make them a superstar!” Said Mr. Sam Onyemelukwe, Trace West Africa’s Managing Director.

A fundamental rule of economics is when there is high demand and low supply, there is an imbalance and the demand will skyrocket. That is true of Trace because there are only about 50 videos in rotation on the channel at any one time; meanwhile, the channels receive over 100 new video submissions a week. As spelt out in the newly released selection guidelines, Trace does not charge for video submission or airplay. On the contrary, royalties are paid to artists and record labels for broadcasting their works.

“Some unscrupulous people have gone so far as to charge unknowing record labels and artists with a fake guarantee that their video will air on Trace, we even heard of a guy in Ghana who offers a price list for airplay on Trace and other music channels and shows.” Added Mr. Onyemelukwe. “We do not sell video spins on the channel and anybody who tells you otherwise is a liar. However, at the same time, we know how much demand is out there, so we offer a promotion package called Zoom that can be purchased and guarantees a short profile and a few clips of an artist’s music video”.

MORE INFO ABOUT ZOOM

Due to a recent escalation in requests and an incident in Cameroun where Greenpeace paid 2000 Euros to a fraudulent “middle man” who did not even submit the video, Trace decided to release video selection guidelines, a document that has been used internally since 2011. Over the years, it has proven close to impossible from stop a few rogue staff and dishonest industry practitioners from collecting money but on the flip side, also record labels and artists have been repeatedly advised to desist from offering money for airplay. Public announcements of how our submission process works and the fact that you cannot pay for video airplay should help curb these sharp practices.

All artists, managers, promoters and industry stakeholders are encouraged and welcome to foster relationships with Trace staff in all departments but no one person can guarantee to get your video played. For 2018, we have re-organised our local talent and music organization. Please reach out to Nigeria@trace.tv and you can submit videos directly on www.trace.tv.
