TY Bello is now a proud mum of twins after 9 years of being in God's waiting Room.  The musician/photographer gave birth in the United States of America. 
The twins are boys named Christopher and Christian. TY and her husband Kashetu Bello are said to be elated who wouldn't be especially after such a long wait.
The beautiful inspirational singer known to be reserved when it comes to putting her family affairs in the public glare was one of the three young women who made up the popular group, KUSH along with Dapo Torimiro. She secretly got married in 2005.
Now you may wonder why you never heard of her pregnancy, TY in her nature is not one to publicize her private family matters. Only close friends and family members were aware of her pregnancy, which makes the news of her delivery to be a surprise to many.

I am extremely happy about this news and  wish TY happy motherhood. Double congratulations to TY and Kashetu, one for each of the boys, double  Kisses, everything is double double... Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Bello.  Love you loads.

The popularity of the cross-platform messaging app WhatsApp continues to grow in leaps and bounds with the latest revelation that its user base has crossed the 500 million mark. Apparently, these 500 million people are not only registered members but also active users.
The rapid growth of Internet-based messaging app which was snapped up by Facebook in February this year for a whopping sum of $19 billion is nothing short of remarkable. Since its acquisition by the social networking site the company has added 50 million users.
WhatsApp had 200 million users last year in August, but the number swelled to 430 million in January 2014. The instant messaging app reportedly processes 50 billion messages on an average every day and users are sharing 700 million photos and 100 million videos per day.
“Thanks to all of you, half a billion people around the world are now regular, active WhatsApp users. Users are also sharing more than 700 million photos and 100 million videos every single day. We could go on, but for now, it’s more important that we get back to work – because here at WhatsApp, we are just getting started,” read an official company blog post.
The fastest growth has been witnessed in countries like Brazil, India, Mexico, and Russia. Speaking about India alone, the nation constitutes almost 10 per cent (9.6 per cent to be exact) of the total user base of WhatsApp. Currently, India is the single largest country for the company, with the service having 48 million monthly actives users (MAUs). In just two months, the company has added 8 million MAU’s (WhatsApp had 40 million users in India as of Feb 2014).
WhatsApp has achieved these numbers by joining forces with a number of telecom operators in the country including Reliance Communications, Tata Docomo and Uninor. As per, WhatsApp's Neeraj Arora the service in India is gaining 4 million active users every month and that the country’s user base is likely to surpass the 50 million mark in May.Close on heels is Brazil with 45 million actives while Turkey has 14 million active users.
Jan Koum, co-founder of WhatsApp says in a post on company’s blog that they have not made any huge changes in WhatsApp over the last six months, except around 1,000 little bug fixes and improvements. Plans to add a voice calling feature in the app are in the pipeline and features is likely to be rolled out in the next few months.

Bmpro was Signed on as The Baileys Ambassador!!!. #massiveThankyou to Guiness Nigeria Plc ❤️ Our Clients who have been there from the beginning , luv you cos YOU made US! #thankyou! This means #drinksonthe house!!!
The value of this ambassadorial endorsement is not yet known to moms but one thing is sure, the amount really got her smiling to the bank with her make up brushes . Working Moms wishes Momprenuer Banke well and hereby congratulates her for this feat.


After your 8-5 job in the office, you come home and what do you do! You start blogging in the night. Hmmm, I'm I guilty of this?, well em sometimes sha. Are you guilty of this? May be you should just ask your colleague in bed right there lol. If you are a mom that works in bed? - now its time to do it right! Surprise! lots of working moms work whenever and from wherever they can, including their beds. Personally I do it a lot and in the last few weeks I have been having stiff neck. A visit to my doctor revealed that my bed posture is the major cause of my neck pain. If you haven't reached a painful stage like me, I beg you to read this and learn from my experience. If you must burn the midnight oil among your blankets and bolsters, the following tips I will share with you are how to do it without hurting your health—or your relationship.

The truth is that Late-night convos with close colleagues from bed shouldn’t replace pillow talk with your domestic partner. You must set boundaries.  I will urge you to limit working from your love nest to a few times a week, or only when under a tight deadline. Oga will understand deadlines. Save the other nights for, ahem, other things so that God will bless your homely ministry.

Replacing your desk for a fluffy pillow sounds comfortable right, but working from bed can actually lead to bad posture and a stiff neck and back. Prevent slouching with posture-friendly props like your headboard and firm pillows to keep your laptop at desk height and your wrists at a good angle.
Set a reminder to get up and move around or do a light stretch, like a yoga pose or any exercise you are comfortable doing. It can be erotic ones, mbok your ministry will not only be blessed but you will receive serious anointing from man of the house.

SHUT IT DOWN BEFORE A SHUT-EYE. Finish night work at least 30 minutes before snooze time so your mind can de-stress. And pack up your laptop and move all devices to where you can’t see or hear them, since the distracting pings, dings and lights from computers and smartphones can decrease levels of sleep-inducing melatonin. I will suggest you turn them off completely. Hint: Let a real alarm clock wake you, and say goodnight to your phone until morning hahaha. Do you want the real alarm clock? It is right there in your home if you have a new born baby otherwise right me for suggestions on real alarm clocks options lol.
These are a few I could think up, if you have more tips, kindly add to the list. Enjoy your weekend mamas.

 The IREDE Foundation is a not for profit organization focused on learning a hand of Love, Joy and Hope to children living with limb loss whether congenital or acquired by encouraging and enabling them to live a self supportive lives and to help affected families to rise to the challenge of limb loss knowing there are no limits to their potentials.
It was founded in 2012 by Crystal Chigbu, a mother of 4 year old IREDE Beulah Chigbu who was born with a missing tibia and patella in her right leg. Crystal and husband, Zubby were told that the only option for Beulah for a functionally mobile life was amputation and prosthesis. It took over 2 years for Crystal and Zubby just to accept the reality to have the surgery and give Beulah prosthesis.
The IREDE Foundation is Crystal’s opportunity to share her hope, and faith with all caregivers, families and kids with limb loss.
The IREDE foundation has three processes:
Educate: We are focused on educating care-givers and the society on congenital and acquired limb loss; and how to relate and care for children with this kind of loss. This will be delivered via seminars/trainings, the use of mass media, social media etc.
Encourage: We understand the challenges these children and their families face daily; and desire to be there for them when they need encouragement and support. Thus via the establishment of Support Groups, we will build a support system they can count on always
Empower: We are focused on empowering the African child living with limb loss to live his or her life to the fullest; having equal access to life’s opportunities like every other African child via mentoring/ coaching sessions and the provision of prosthetic limbs to indigent children between the ages of 1-18 years.
The OUT ON A LIMB awareness walk schedule to hold on Saturday the 12th of April 2014, is part of our yearly educate programme aimed at bringing the attention of society to the challenges faced by children living with limb loss and the need to appropriately care for them.
