Meet the man deported from Saudi Arabia for being too handsome

Drop dead gorgeous actor, poet and fashion photographer Omar Borkan Al Gala (pictured above) from UAE was one of the three men ordered to leave a cultural festival early this month in Saudi Arabia and then thrown out of the country because authorities thought their looks could corrupt their young women.

Arabic newspaper Elaph wrote: ‘A festival official said the three Emiratis were taken out on the grounds they are too handsome and that the commission (for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vices) members feared female visitors could fall for them.’
 
Lol. Some silly things you hear. Meanwhile if he's over 30 and straight, they should please import him to Naija, biko! Those lips...choi! Hehe. See more photos after the cut...

Diamond Bank ends 2013 with the fabulous Black &Diamonds party

Bankers do know how to groove! If you are in doubt, ask anyone who attended Diamond Bank’s 2013 long service awards cum end-of-year party dubbed 'Black & Diamonds Party' which held at the Landmark Event Centre on Friday, 13 December 2013.
The event with the theme Black & Diamonds was spurred out of the need to celebrate Diamond Bank' s outstanding performance this year and members of staff who had put in a minimum of 10 years in the service of the Bank. Continue....




Anchored by leading comedian Bovi, the audience was taken through a delightful event as they enjoyed the best of choice wines and cuisine even as Bovi ensured that the guests, made up of Diamond Bank staff, their spouses and customers, were in stitches as he dished out rib cracking jokes continuously.

Highlights of the party included the long service awards where various members of staff who had put in 10 and 20 years in the employ of the Bank, were presented with their awards by the Bank’s Group Managing Director/CEO, Dr. Alex Otti. Dr. Otti commended the awards recipients for their service and loyalty to the Diamond brand and wished them many more fruitful years in their banking careers.

The Black & Diamonds party was not devoid of the usual hitches associated with events of this magnitude. Olamide stepped on stage to deliver what would be described as a disappointing performance which came across as unprepared and unrehearsed. Hip-hop sensation Davido, helped to salvage the situation however by dishing out various songs from his rich repertoire, crowning it with his recent street anthem, Skelewu.

Strangely Basket mouth who was billed to perform at the party showed unprofessionalism  by not making it to the event. Innocent ‘Tuface’ Idibia brought the event to magnificent climax at around 1am, when he mounted the stage and dished out hit track after hit track to the admiration of the guests. As at 3am when this reporter left Landmark Event Centre, Oniru the crowd was still dancing to various club tracks delivered by the DJ. 

Although several bank’s hosted their end-of-year parties at the same time, I am more than convinced that Diamond Bank’s was the “rockest” of them all.
