We have followed with intrigue in the past few days, rumours and gist circulating on the supposed ‘Engagement of Ms Karen Igho to a Mystery man’ following her tweets on Twitter. Ms Karen Igho has requested that this news statement be made available to the public on the matter.

However, to clear the air on the alleged tweets, they were random thoughts from Ms Karen Igho after an admirer and fan proposed to her. Celebrities often experience the same thing; Ms Igho only tweeted about

About The Conference

New media played an unprecedented role in the April 2011 Nigerian General Elections. Following a roundtable in early March 2011, INEC officials welcomed the assistance of civil society volunteers with its Facebook and Twitter accounts as well as a new media situation room which received feedback from the public and later began to provide real time information and answer constituent questions.

Nigerian politicians actively utilized social media in their campaigns and sent bulk text and voice messages in unprecedented numbers. President Jonathan declared his intention to run on Facebook and subsequently became the second most “liked” head of state in the world after US President Barack Obama (fanpagelist.com).

Organizations like Enough is Enough Nigeria, ReclaimNaija, WangoNet and IamLagos established platforms enabling citizens to report election-related incidences with pictures, videos, text messages and voicemail. At the same time, traditional media houses such as Channels Television, 234Next and Punch newspaper used new media to disseminate information and gather feedback from viewers.

Khloe Kardashian Tries To End Beyonce-Kim Kardashian Feud

Do you think Beyonce will love the Kardashians?

Even though Beyonce gave the Kardashian family a major diss by refusing to associate with Kim, Khloe still extended the olive branch! Can’t we all just get along?

 While fans may support 'Kimye' Kanye West and Kim Kardashian‘s romance, his BFF Jay Z and  Beyonce has wanted nothing to do with her. Even so, Kim’s little sister Khloe took to Twitter to try and squash the beef with the superstar singer.

Khloe Odom, 27, took to Twitter on April 26 to rave about 30-year-old Beyonce’s PEOPLE cover naming her the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman”, writing, “Beyonce really is so stunning! She looks flawless in People magazine. Great article… She’s so in love :)”
It sounds like she’s trying to get on Beyonce’s good side in a VERY public way! Bad move I think.
