WALE ALADEJANA, FOUNDER OF SAPPHIRE PERFUMES PRAISES COZA PASTOR, FOR BLESSING HIS BUSINESS

Wale Aladejana, founder of Sapphire perfumes, has nothing but praise for pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo for changing his life for the better.

The founder of Sapphire perfumes also used the opportunity to pass a message to people who listen to Daddy freeze, who insults their pastors. Read what he wrote below…

“#RemembranceWednesday
The Holy Spirit inspired me to start writing about what He has done for me in the past because the day you forget what God has done and the people He has used is the day you begin to go down.

The bible says in Hosea 12:13 “And by a prophet the LORD brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was he preserved.” There are certain people you MUST meet in this life or you will remain on a spot.
Around April or May of 2010 I walked into a church called Commonwealth of Zion Assembly on a Tuesday service and my life changed forever.
Fast forward to 2015, I told Pastor Biodun about my perfume business and then he travelled to Dubai. I met him again and he brought out his phone and began to show me pictures of perfumes and by August 24, 2015 he put a million Naira in my hands and said these life changing words “this money will not finish, go and explode and takeover”

Ladies and gentlemen from that day, I began to experience high finance, there is no single day in the last 3 years that I don’t get credit alert on my phone because a man of God commanded it!

Some people forget who their man of God is and the people who helped them when money comes but I will never forget and I must never forget Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo if I want to retain the anointing. I must keep celebrating and honouring my man of God.
For those of you who use your man of God as toothpick and chewing gum and listen to Daddy Freeze and co, keep it up. As for me, you dare not talk bad about my man of God in my presence because you will be insulting the grace on my life.
God will not come down from heaven, He will use a man and God has used this man of God to change my life. Till date, I NEVER make a move without my man of God.

@biodunfatoyinbo I remember the exploits God has been using you to do in my life and I will never forget sir. I love you, I honour you and I celebrate you.
You too can be a social media evangelist. Please share so that others can be blessed as you have been blessed.

UEFA Champions League: Egyptian Lawyer Slams €1 Billion Lawsuit Against Sergio Ramos Over Challenge On Mohammed Salah

An Egyptian lawyer, Bassem Wahba, has launched a €1 billion lawsuit against Spanish international and Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos after Liverpool and Egypt star Mohamed Salah was injured in a challenge involving both players during Saturday’s Champions League final.

The challenge had Salah landing heavily on his left shoulder after a tussle with Ramos in the 28th minute of the game which caused a ligament damage around Salah’s joint which ultimately made him miss the rest of the game.

Following challenge, the Egyptian and EPL golden boot winner’s chances of recovering in time for the FIA World Cup in Russia is now in doubt. Salah had posted on Twitter on Sunday to say he was “confident” he would be able to represent Hector Cuper’s side at Russia 2018, but that has done nothing to quell the apparent anger of lawyer.

Speaking on Egyptian television channel Sada El-Balad, Wahba said he had filed a complaint to FIFA and accused Ramos of deliberately inflicting “physical and psychological harm” upon a nation and its most celebrated footballer.

“Ramos intentionally injured Mo Salah and should be punished about his actions,” he claimed. “I’ve filed a lawsuit and a complaint to FIFA.

“I’ll ask for compensation, which could exceed €1 billion, for the physical and psychological harm that Ramos gave Salah and the Egyptian people.”

The lawyer also said that if he eventually wins the case, he will be donating the compensation to the state’s Long Live Egypt Fund.

Youtube removes half of violent music videos in UK

Video-sharing site;,YouTube, has deleted more than half of the “violent” music videos that the country’s most senior police officer asked it to take down.

Due to increased cases of violence, More than 30 clips have been removed so far.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick blamed some videos for fuelling a surge in murders and violent crime in London and singled out drill music.

She asked YouTube to delete content, which glamorises violence.

Drill music originated in Chicago. Its biggest breakout star is arguably Chief Keef, famous for his 2012 track I Don’t Like. The genre’s lyrics often detail vivid accounts of taking drugs and violence.

In a similar development, 17-year-old rapper Junior Simpson was sentenced to life in prison after he and three others stabbed 15-year-old Jermaine Goupall to death. The court heard he had penned a track about knife attacks before carrying out the killing.

According to the BBC, police have asked YouTube to take down between 50 and 60 music videos, because they were deemed to incite violence.

Metropolitan Police, Mike West, lamented that gangs try to outrival each other with the filming and content, reinstating that what looks like a music video could actually contain explicit language with gangs threatening each other.

“There are gestures of violence, with hand signals suggesting they are firing weapons and graphic descriptions of what they would do to each other.

Pressplay, a company that promotes drill music videos, said on its Instagram page that police had “forced” YouTube to take some clips down because of “what’s happened lately”.

However, the same post said the clips “will probably be back up in the next few weeks.
