Nollywood actor Uche Jumbo is set to have a corrective eye surgery in the US, after she discovered a defect during a routine test.

We’re told the actor, who had applied for a driver’s licence in America, was asked to do an eye test as part of the procedures, to ascertain she could see well enough to drive.

Jumbo reportedly failed the eye test and was the told by the doctors she would need a corrective eye surgery before she can reapply for the drivers licence.

Sources say the actor who now spends more time with her husband in the US has decided to have the surgery…

According to movie site Hollywood actor Idris Elba is set to make history as the first black James Bond, as he is currently in talks with the movie producer Barbara Broccoli as a replacement for British actor and current James Bond, Daniel Craig.

This news however may appear too soon as it may take much longer before this could take effect, if agreements are eventually reached, will take place. Daniel Craig has two more James Bond film roles to play according to his contract, which means that it would take Idris Elba another 7 years to achieve this feat.

While the new Bong girl Naomie Harris who played Eve in the new James Bond movie ‘Skyfall‘ seems to welcome the idea, as she says Idris Elba is a great guy.

The man in question, Idris Elba who is of Ghanaian/Sierra Leone descent is concerned about the colour tag; he says he would like to be remembered as a great actor and not the ‘Black James Bond’, ‘I don’t want to be the black James Bond. Sean Connery wasn’t the Scottish James Bond, and Daniel Craig wasn’t the blue-eyed James Bond, so if I played him, I don’t want to be called the black James Bond’.

For her second look, she went for a blue tulle number by S.O.M.O By Somo. The ball gown intricate beading and feather details on the bodice and a full tulle skirt.

A structured green dress by Nkadz cinched at the waist with a bold belt was her third and final look. Her hair which had hitherto been styled in a perfect chignon was turned into a short curly do that perfectly framed her beautiful face.

Popular Ghollywood actor Yvonne Nelson has released a statement denying the recent rumour making rounds, that she has been bleaching her skin, hence her new complexion.

In her statement she claims to understand the dangers of skin bleaching and as such wouldn’t engage in it. Her statement reads:

‘My attention has been drawn to recent media reports that I am bleaching my skin and the continuous nature of this wicked, unfounded and absolutely unnecessary misinformation have compelled me to once again respond.

These stories are absolutely not true and do not in any way put food on anybody’s table, does not add value to any body’s life and can only be described as mischief.

I fully understand the dangers of skin bleaching and would not engage in any such venture. I am a lady and I appreciate my God-given looks. I do not need to change my skin colour for any reason.

Truth is that even if I was bleaching, I do not owe anyone any explanation, but I am not bleaching, I have not bleached and I won’t bleach.

I love my skin just the way it is and I do my best to keep it healthy and nice.

If God has remained good to me and continues to make my skin nicer, I do not see how it should be a problem to someone.

In a society that largely frowns on skin bleaching, it would be unfair and very unkind to falsely accuse me of bleaching when I am absolutely innocent of that charge.

As an actress I take different pictures under different shades of light and with different shades of makeup depending on what the picture would be used for.

It is therefore not strange to find different pictures of me looking different. It does not mean I am bleaching and one does not need to be an industry player to know this.

Even in movies, depending on who the director is, there are different lighting angles and brightness levels that can be used to make a character look different and this is no secret. Even a change of weather can have an effect of one’s skin.

I want to use this platform to assure all persons who have expressed worry about these reports that there is no cause for alarm because I am not bleaching, have not bleached and would not bleach.

There are more prudent and beneficial things to focus on and these frequent distractions are of no use.

I should have spent this time focusing on my new movies or memorizing my next script and not responding to false gossips’.

Thank you.

Sincerely yours,

Yvonne Nelson
