Why I Married Dele Giwa – Ita-Giwa

Why I Married Dele Giwa – Ita-Giwa

A former presidential special adviser, Senator Florence Ita-Giwa, on Wednesday disclosed that she fell in love and married Dele Giwa because of his Press Snaps column.

Dele Giwa, a former the Editor-in-Chief of Newswatch magazine, was killed by a letter bomb on October 19, 1986.

Ita-Giwa, who spoke on a radio programme (Hit FM) in Calabar on Wednesday, explained that she became interested in the journalistic write-ups as a result of the works of her mother, Beatrice Bassey-Ita and the likes of Peter Enahoro and Sam Amuka.

She said that she got married to Dele Giwa just barely three weeks after their first contact as a result of his intellectual prowess.

The former presidential adviser, who was responding to a question on her relationship with Dele Giwa, said that she followed him to his house on request on the first day that they met to know how he wrote his column.

She said, “I became attracted to journalism because of my mother and the likes of Peter Enahoro, Sam Amuka and others. My mother worked for the West African Pilot and later The Guardian before she joined Sketch where she retired.

“I stumbled into Dele Giwa because I liked his column. I did marry him eventually not because he was handsome, but what he had upstairs. When I met him coincidentally, I just told him that I had been reading his columns which I found entertaining and intellectually challenging.

“On that particular day, he looked at his time and said he was going home to write his column, he requested that i follow him to his house to see how he prepared the column, I agreed. We drove from Surulere to Ikeja because I was curious.

“When we got to his house, he went to his study and brought out one old typewriter and sat on the table with a glass of water and cognac and started typing straight from his head without looking at any material.

“He did this up till about 3am the next morning, I was so amazed. I called my mum that early morning through his telephone (landline) to inform her that I was with Dele Giwa and that he was typing his column from his head.

“From that day, we never parted until we got engaged three weeks after. He was a beautiful and intellectually rich human being that had so much in his head. He was very fearless. He was a prolific writer and I was always scared for his life.”
World's Fatest Woman To Undergo Surgery In India

World's Fatest Woman To Undergo Surgery In India

A woman believed to be the world’s fattest, a 78 stone woman is leaving her home for the first time in 25 years to have life-saving weight reduction surgery.

Iman Ahmad Abdulati, 26 – who tips the scales at over half a tonne (over 78.7 stone) – is to fly to India from her home in Alexandria, Egypt, after one of the world’s leading bariatric surgeons volunteered to treat her.

But Iman’s op was almost grounded before it began after immigration officials at India’s embassy in Cairo refused to believe she was too big to visit to make her visa application.

Indian law requires visa applicants allow immigration police to take their fingerprints.
They only backed down when surgeon Dr Muffazzal Lakdawala used Twitter to contact India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to ask for help.

His tweet read: “Ma’am, Eman Ahmed (Egypt) 500kgs requested me 2 save her pls help me get her a medical visa as refused thru normal process @SushmaSwaraj”

He explained later: “Iman can’t move because of her condition, and due to her weight, it is near impossible to move her.”

He added: “But the Indian Embassy in Cairo wasn’t ready to accept it.
“The officers thought that the family was bluffing and kept asking the family members to bring Iman to the embassy to scan her fingerprint.

“They didn’t pay any heed to the family’s requests and, as a result, Iman’s visa was rejected.”
The Minister replied to the doctor’s tweet immediately and the visa request was granted and everything could go forward. She said: “Thanks for bringing this to my notice. We will definitely help her.”

Now, however, the medic is struggling with the mammoth problem of getting Iman to Mumbai this week for a series of ops that could last a year.
He told local media he plans to – at first – use a bariatric balloon to fill up part of Iman’s digestive tract.

The doctor reckons she could lose as much as 62 stone in two years.

He said: “Due to her heavy weight, we can’t bring her in a normal plane, so we are trying to arrange a private chartered flight instead.”

The plane will have to be refitted with a reinforced bed because Iman’s weight makes it impossible for her to sit upright in a chair.

At home, she relies on her mother and sister Chaymaa Abdulati to help her with everyday tasks like eating, getting dressed, washing and going to the bathroom.

Simi Is Tres Belle In New Photos For The Cover Magazine

Simi is the cover girl for the latest issue of Accelerate TV’s The Cover magazine.

In the issue tagged,  ‘The Party Issue’, the singer shows off her stylish side as she struck poses for the camera.

The singer whose fashion sense has been criticized on a number of occasions also opened up on her weirdest fashion moment saying, “I think the outfit that has had the weirdest comments was this absolutely beautiful dress- it’s green and yellow and it was like a halter and then it had this chain thing hanging.

 But then when I took a picture, it didn’t photograph as nice as the dress was. But I guess maybe I didn’t know at the time and I posted it and then people were like ‘why does this look weird’. The thing is it’s very hard to get to me especially when I know something is not true because I knew how beautiful the dress was.

 People that were around me they were like ‘what are they talking about? I swear that dress was nice’ I will say that one was the one that got the weirdest comments; people said it looked like I was going for cultural dance.”

Describing her personal style to the magazine Simi said, “I’m very very laid back and I can be kind of a tom boy, like a girlish type tom boy. I like sneakers and jeans, crop tops. I like to play dress up sometimes, I think its fun. But my general life, I like to be comfortable like wearing shorts, I like shorts.
