Chris Brown and Frank Ocean reportedly got into a fight


The R&B stars have shared arguments in the past, but called a truce on Twitter back in 2011. However, both men along with several friends were reportedly involved in a physical altercation at a Westlake Studio on Sunday evening (Jan. 27). TMZ claims Frank and Chris were both working at the studio when Brown attempted to leave but was blocked by Ocean and his crew. 

"The sources say as Chris went to leave, Frank Ocean and his crew blocked Chris from leaving. The sources say Frank said, "This is my studio, this is my parking spot." We're told Chris went to shake Frank's hand ... and that's when one of Frank's people attacked Chris. Sources connected with Chris say one of Chris' friends jumped in front and hit Frank's friend. Sources connected with Chris say Frank then came at Chris ... Chris pushed him away and they started brawling." -TMZ 

According to Ocean's Twitter messages, there may be a different story. After the alleged incident, Frank tweeted: "got jumped by chris and a couple guys. lol. i only wish everest was there." 

"cut my finger now I can't play w two hands at the grammys." 

Police are actively investigating the incident and witnesses say Chris Brown assaulted someone in the melee. 6 men were reportedly involved in the brawl.

This is Sad: 40 Decayed bodies found in Anambra river


Just got back from church and i thought i should scroll through what's going on in the country and Yes i came across this horrifying news on Linda Ikeji's Blog.. She wrote that..


Residents of Amansea in Awka, Anambra State woke up yesterday morning Saturday January 19th to a horrifying sight; 40 dead bodies floating in a River in their community. People from the community and some neighbouring ones besieged the Ezu river yesterday to catch a glimpse of the dead bodies.The river is at the boundary between Enugu and Anambra states and the dead bodies were found at the old Enugu-Onitsha road axis of the river.

The corpses whose identities were unknown, were suspected to have been dumped in the river Friday night by unknown persons. 

The traditional ruler of Amansea said the community had never witnessed such a gory sight before,while the Commissioner of Police in the state said the dead bodies remained a mystery as there had been no communal clash in Enugu or Anambra where many people were killed. He said investigations are ongoing...

Meanwhile the governor of the state, Peter Obi, has cut short his working trip abroad to return to the state to enable him visit the scene.
