It’s no secret R&B star Usher has served as a mentor to pop superstar Justin Bieber.

Usher told Billboard recently that he was “not happy” with some of the young singer’s recent behavior.

Bieber’s latest run-in with the law occurred in August when he was arrested for misdemeanor dangerous driving and assault.

Usher, who has helped guide the Canadian pop star since he broke into the spotlight at 13, also told Billboard that the pair’s relationship is “more man-to-man now.”

The 36-year-old singer adds:

He’s making his own decisions and it’s important to show support. I can say I’m not happy with all the choices my friend has made,

Chinedu Ubachukwu Wins Gulder Ultimate Search 11

As the search neared its end, Chinedu appeared to regain his strength and the trio raced across a river which was at their waist-level, towards their work stations situated at the belly of the Aguleri forest. There they met an emissary of the Council of Elders who adorned a red cloak. His duty was to grant them right of passage only after correctly pieced together the tiles which they found during their very long trek.

Cosy was the first to solve the riddle, followed by Chinedu and then Emmanuel. They raced towards three canoes and paddled away in different directions. Both Emmanuel and Cosy Joe appeared to paddle their canoes aimlessly while Chinedu paddled towards a particular direction. It turned out Chinedu rowed his canoe towards a clay pot which was emitting fire.

At this point, Cosy Joe appeared frustrated and angrily hit the water with his bare hands. He had no paddle. As Cosy paddled his boat to shore and alighted on land, Emmanuel attempted to row his canoe in Chinedu’s direction.

Chinedu raced on land and retrieved the great General’s Helmet surrounded by three fire pots. Hence, he joins the Order of Heroes as the 11th winner of Gulder Ultimate Search.

Chidi Mokeme, the Anchor man, soon arrived on canoe and congratulated Chinedu on his great feat. He said: “After 26 murderous days in the Aguleri jungle, after days and nights of pain and sorrow; thinking about the unknown, nursing your wounds with sweat, with blood, it is you Chinedu who made it here. It is you who has carved your name in history. It is you who has earned the bragging rights. It is you who has made it into the elite league of extra ordinary warriors. By the powers conferred on me by the Council of Elders, I now pronounce you Last Man Standing!”

For his feat, Chinedu will be rewarded with N10 million and a brand new SUV at a party fit only for royalty. Two other contestants will also receive brand new vehicles. They are Samantha Appi, who will drive home a brand new Ford Eco sport for emerging as the Last Woman Standing and the winner of the Viewers’ Choice, who will go home with a Ford Focus.

Congrats Chinedu, my namesake.

We did not endorse Ekweremadu – Chime’s kinsmen

“The story is as false as it is mischievous and ridiculous. How can a burial become a forum for endorsement of a candidate for political office? They claimed it was done by Chime’s kinsmen but everyone knows that Chief Mike Ugwu whose name was mentioned as the main speaker at the event is from Affa and not Udi, the other two speakers Anayo Onwuegbu is from Akpugoeze in Oji River Local Government and again by their own admission, Dr Nnamdi Ene is from Obinagu and not Udi, so how are they Chime’s kinsmen?”

We did not endorse Ekweremadu – Chime’s kinsmen – DailyPost Nigeria.

These two Igbo sons should settle their differences.

Chime vs Ekweremadu: PDP NWC shuns Gov Chime at PDP HQ

GOVERNOR Sullivan Chime’s senatorial ambition a suffered setback Tuesday as the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) failed to receive him at its national secretariat in Abuja.

The Enugu governor is seeking to replace the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, who is equally seeking a third term at the Senate. Chime arrived at the PDP Secretariat as early as 11.00a.m, hoping to see the NWC or the National Chairman, Dr. Adamu Mu’azu, but could not, even after waiting for over five hours.

The crisis rocking the Enugu chapter of the PDP heightened with last weekend’s curious resignation of the chairman, Mr. Vita Abba. It was learnt that the party leadership had pleaded with Chime to drop the impeachment of the former Deputy Governor, Sunday Onyebuchi, all to no avail.

It was further learnt that the crisis deepened after Chime’s insistence that Ekweremadu should not return to the Senate, just as the state PDP Deputy Chairman, Elder David Aja, rejected the appointment of the Managing Director of Enugu State Housing Development Cooperation (ESHDC), Mr. Ikeje Asogwa, as acting chairman following Abba’s resignation.

Chime, it was gathered, was politely
