Face of Beauty Nigeria founder now broke after being fleeced and abandoned by husband she helped when he had nothing

Patience Patra Idehen, the young businesswoman behind the once-popular brand Face of Beauty Nigeria, has cried out online that she has lost everything she has to her husband and his family and he has left her. 

Patra married her husband when they were both still students of the University of Benin. Though she was a student at the time, she was making so much money from her beauty brand. 

Since her partner was just a regular student and wasn’t making any money, she became a bread winner. 

She said they began dating in 2017 and got married in 2018 while they were still in school. They welcomed two children in quick succession. 

She was the breadwinner of the family and she said she did it happily. 

However, she said trouble started last year when she bought a car in her name. She said she noticed her husband’s countenance changed then and so did his actions towards her. 

Subsequently, she said she began to lose everything, including her source of income. 

She said her husband then advised her to sell off her new car, so she did and put the money into running their home. 

Later, they were in need of cash again, so she had to sell the house she was building. It turns out it was her husband’s aunt who bought the house. 

She said her husband then told her he wanted to go for a course and he needs about a million Naira. It was the last money she had and she gave it to him. 

After he left for the course, he sent her a message that he is not coming back and he had already clocked out of the marriage since 2019, when they were just one year into their marriage. 

She added that he also abandoned their two kids and she has to beg to feed them. 

She explained that the house she is currently living in is mouldy and leaks and this causes her children to be sick

However, whenever she reaches out to her husband for help, he tells her things that make her feel bad about herself, then he ends up sending her two thousand Naira only (#2,000), or in some cases five thousand Naira (#5,000). 

She said there are times she goes hungry for 2 days so her children can eat. 

She added that her landlord has now asked her to leave because their rent has expired and he recently embarrassed her in full view of the neighbours over her unpaid rent. 

In an interview with Business Day, Patra cried out for help to take care of her kids and find a new roof over their heads. 

Friends who knew Patra from school have expressed outrage. They pointed out that she gave her all to her husband, even when they were still students. They added that they are shocked to see what he has reduced her to.

Former US president, Donald Trump stormed out of his civil fraud trial on Wednesday, October 25, after Michael Cohen backtracked in his testimony about whether he was lying to Congress in 2019 when he said that Donald Trump had never directed him to inflate financial payments.

On Wednesday morning, Cohen said he was lying in 2019 when he testified, “not that I recall, no,” in response to a question about Trump had directed him or Allen Weisselberg to inflate numbers for his personal statement.


But on Wednesday afternoon, Cohen said in response to additional questions that he did in fact stand by his congressional testimony that he had not been directed to inflate Trump’s financial numbers.

“So Mr. Trump never asked you to inflate the numbers on his financial statement,” Trump attorney Cliff Robert asked.


“Correct,” Cohen said.

Trump and his attorney Alina Habba threw up their arms at Cohen’s response. Robert then asked the judge for a directed verdict to dismiss the trial because Cohen was a key witness in the case.

Judge Arthur Engoron denied the motion. Trump then said “I’m leaving,” and walked out.

Outside the courtroom, Trump said, “The witness just admitted that we won the trial. And then judge should end this trial immediately.”

“We just won the case and he wouldn’t end”

Cohen later clarified in response to questions from the New York attorney general’s office that Trump didn’t directly ask him to inflate the numbers – but the idea was implied.

“He speaks like a mob boss,” Cohen said.

Arsenal academy director for almost two decades, Liam Brady, has told FourFourTwo that he’s helped his former club accrue around £400 million over 20 years working in north London.

Brady distanced himself from the Arsenal manager’s job in 1996 following Bruce Rioch’s sacking, instead becoming Head of Youth Development and Academy Director under Arsene Wenger at Highbury. He stayed with the club in various roles until 2014, overseeing the integration of countless young stars over that time.

The Gunners are relied heavily on youth products in the first team ever since Brady’s playing days. When FFT asked the Irishman to name some of the biggest hits and misses that he’d seen over the years, Brady confirmed that he was responsible for some of the club’s finest stars – and their sales.

“I’d never put guys down by saying who should have made it, but I’m happy to talk about the ones who played in the first team,” he said. “Bukayo Saka, Eddie Nketiah and Emile Smith Rowe were recruited when I was head of the academy. 

“Then you’ve got Ashley Cole, Jack Wilshere, Wojciech Szczesny… The sheer amount of money I’ve brought into the club is something I’m proud of.

“I still count it up when we transfer someone. It must be close to £400 million, dating back to 1996 when I started. Some of that was wasted on the likes of Nicolas Pepe!”

A controversial non-call from English umpire Richard Kettleborough has split opinions after he seemingly ignored a blatant wide in the lead-up to Indian star Virat Kohli‘s World Cup century.

Kohli was named the player of the match for his unbeaten 103 in India’s seven-wicket win over Bangladesh in Pune, but it was the way he got to his 48th ODI century that raised eyebrows.

With the match in India’s hands down the stretch, the focus soon turned to whether Kohli would be able to get his 48th ODI century.

India needed 28 to win at the start of the 38th over, with Kohli needing 27 of those for a century. That was when he put his foot on the accelerator and began expertly farming the strike so he could reach the milestone.

India needed just two to win off 54 balls when left-arm spinner Nasum Ahmed began his over with Kohli on 97 off 94 deliveries.

A boundary or a three would’ve given the former captain his century, while anything less would mean he would be denied like teammate KL Rahul against Australia earlier in the World Cup. Ironically, Rahul was at the other end this time around as Kohli hunted the three figures.

Nasum fired one down the leg side, potentially deliberately in a bid to deny the Indian star, with Kohli looking visibly perturbed as he expected a wide call to come from the umpire. Only it didn’t.

Kettleborough’s call stunned the commentators and was met with laughter in the Indian dressing room.

”I’m a little bit surprised there that the umpire did not signal a wide for this one. Usually that is called. Virat was a little bit desperate,” said former West Indies skipper Samuel Badree.

Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram defended Kettleborough.

“It was one of those general mistakes. It was a wide ball, sure,” Akram told Pakistani TV network ASports.

“This is for people who have nothing to do, who live off this crap, and then they can go nuts with it.”

Others on social media didn’t share the same view as the legendary fast bowler, who won the 1992 World Cup with Pakistan.

Kohli charged Nasum’s very next delivery, driving the ball down to the fielder placed at long-on, but refused to take a single, before slamming a full toss into the stands to secure what was described as “the perfect finish” by former Indian batter Sanjay Manjrekar on commentary.

“It gets a little tricky with the spinner,” he said.

“The umpire has allowed that maybe because he left it pretty close to his body. He (Kohli) actually wanted that to be a wide, you could see he moved inside. He wants a situation where they need one and he hits a boundary.”

Following India’s win, Kohli’s teammate Shubman Gill, who was seen laughing with spinner Kuldeep Yadav after Kettleborough’s non-call, was coy on whether Nasum had deliberately bowled a wide.

“I don’t know if he intentionally tried to bowl wide or he was just trying to keep it tight and then went away,” he said.

The win over Bangladesh means India is now second on the World Cup table, sitting behind New Zealand, the only other unbeaten team on Net Run Rate.

One of the two teams’ winning streaks will come to an end on Sunday evening AEST unless rain intervenes during the clash at Dharamsala.

Tristian Thompson’s stint at ESPN last season was very odd because usually when an athlete hits the studio sports show market, his playing days are done. Thompson joined ESPN in early 2023 and made appearances on NBA Today and First Take and all that. But then he got signed by the Los Angeles Lakers before the playoffs and even got some postseason minutes, leading to another deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers for this upcoming season. You almost never see that.

In fact, Thompson joining ESPN at all came as a bit of a surprise. He fit the athlete-to-sports-media stereotype in some ways; he was an NBA champion and played with LeBron James. Both of those factors are appealing on their own and combined they mean Thompson is a more recognizable name to the general viewing public than many players of a similar skill level. But unlike, say, Richard Jefferson, Thompson wasn’t a big interview personality, nor did he do any previous broadcasting work to help smooth the transition. Thompson wasn’t even on the radar as a possible media member– then, suddenly, there he was.

And it turns out it was all thanks to Hollywood’s biggest power broker who doubles as the mother Thompson’s longtime paramour. In this week’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kris Jenner reveals she’s the one who put Thompson in contact with ESPN and did not hesitate to detail exactly how she did it.

Thompson has been dating Khloe Kardashian off and on for the last seven years. The pair have two children together and Thompson somewhat recently re-entered the Kardashian fold after a couple of rather public cheating scandals. It seems it pays to have the Don of the Kardashian clan looking after you.

Fascinating to hear how the media sausage gets made. Who knew Kris Jenner was such an influence in this sphere? We might have to make room for her in this year’s Sports Media Awards.

For that reason, we take a look at what the Nollywood film industry in particular has contributed in raising such a crucial topic to the plane of discussion.

Although a very sensitive topic, the use of the audio and visual abilities of film has proven to be an effective way of creating sensitisation for people scattered around various geographical zones.

So in no particular order, here are five Nigerian movies that have addressed mental health issues:

For Maria follows the harrowing experience of a first-time mother who struggles with postpartum depression. It stars Meg Otanwa, Gabriel Afolayan, Tina Mba and Judith Audu.

Postpartum depression is a condition that affects mothers often after birth, many have heard the term but For Maria helped shed light on a very silent but serious issue affecting women.

The film depicts the mental health struggles of six adults in Nigeria, who tell their life stories especially pertaining to issues like depression and attempted suicide.

I’m Not Fine is a 2022 documentary by Lota Chukwu and is currently available on YouTube.

Iyawo Mi (My Wife) is a short film written and directed by Mo Abudu. It tells the heart-wrenching story of a young married man named Kunle, whose nightmares begin when he returns home to his wife, Eniola, hallucinating, screaming at their children and neighbours with a threat to kill everyone.

The film, predominately in Yoruba, features Adedimeji Lateef, Bolaji Ogunmola, Segun Arinze, and Jude Chukwuka.

Her Perfect Life is also a short film directed and written by Abudu, about the life of Onajite Johnson Ibrahim, a woman with a seemingly perfect life.

At 39, she has it all; a flourishing career, a growing business, a loving husband, and two bright and beautiful children. However, beneath it all, she desires to end everything.

It features Pearl Thusi and Joseph Benjamin as lead actors, whilst the support roles include Omawunmi Dada, Uzo Osimpka, Christian Paul, and Mary Lazarus.

Oga John is a 10-minute short film that sets out to increase awareness about mental health issues in Nigeria. The film takes us through the life of Alero, a young lady who appears to struggle with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

Written by Oje Ojeaga, the film shows a glimpse of the possible frustrations of suffering from OCD in a place like Lagos.

Directed by Tolu Ajayi, the film features Ade Laoye as Alero and Imoikor Joseph as Oga John.

The Deion Sanders hype train smashed into a brick wall like Wile E. Coyote on Saturday as Colorado got lambasted by Oregon, 42-6. It was not necessarily unexpected given the Buffaloes were three-touchdown underdogs heading into the contest but it definitely came as a big surprise to everybody who started tuning into college football solely due to the Prime Show. Sanders’ team wasn’t supposed to get rolled like that.

Yet that does not mean Sanders is disappearing as a topic on the studio shows this week. Far from it. The Undisputed crew talked a lot about Prime today, as is expected, and Keyshawn Johnson put on his reporter hat for a segment. He said he talked to a college coach after Oregon’s beatdown who revealed coaches from other teams were calling Oregon to help them gameplan, so badly did they want Colorado to lose.

This would perhaps sound more scandalous if Colorado did not lose by six touchdowns. However, they did. That means Skip Bayless could’ve helped gameplan and the Ducks would have won handily. Oregon didn’t need to hear from other coaches to know they had a massive advantage in terms of depth and their line play on both sides of the ball.

Johnson’s report is kind of funny, though. Football coaches are notoriously stingy with their secrets to winning. To hear that the success of Deion Sanders has infuriated them to the point they’re teaming up to beat him is ludicrous.

Too ludicrous to believe? Perhaps. But Sanders’ entire career as a college football coach has been treading the “too ludicrous to believe” line so, really, anything is possible.

Bharat Ramamurti, the last original senior member of President Biden’s National Economic Council, will leave the White House at the end of the month. His departure closes a chapter in Mr. Biden’s tenure that included a flurry of economic legislation directing large sums of federal money toward infrastructure, manufacturing, clean energy and other initiatives.

Mr. Ramamurti, an N.E.C. deputy, has been a key player in Mr. Biden’s efforts to boost the economy through both legislation and executive action. That included Mr. Biden’s attempts to increase corporate competition — an initiative outlined in an executive order in 2021 — and his plan to forgive a wide swath of student loans, which the Supreme Court struck down.

Mr. Ramamurti was a candidate to lead the N.E.C. when its first director under Mr. Biden, Brian Deese, stepped down in February. The position instead went to a former top Federal Reserve official, Lael Brainard.

In an interview, Ms. Brainard praised Mr. Ramamurti for “outstanding judgment, collegiality, strategic sense, policy chops and communications.”

Before joining Mr. Biden’s transition team after the 2020 presidential election, Mr. Ramamurti was a policy aide to Senator Elizabeth Warren, Democrat of Massachusetts, and the chairman of the Congressional Oversight Commission charged with tracking $2 trillion of economic stimulus approved by President Donald J. Trump amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Many observers expected Mr. Ramamurti to help link Mr. Biden’s economic team with Ms. Warren and other progressive Democrats in Congress on issues like student debt relief, where Mr. Biden’s plans called for less expansive action than the more liberal wing of his party had urged.

Mr. Deese recalled that Mr. Ramamurti, in developing the ill-fated student debt proposal, was influential and pragmatic in expanding on Mr. Biden’s original promise of $10,000 in loan relief for lower-income and middle-class borrowers.

Mr. Ramamurti was among those pushing for more expanded relief that could help Black students and other students of color with particularly large debt levels. He suggested several different ways to expand forgiveness in a targeted manner, at the request of Mr. Deese and Susan Rice, who was then the head of Mr. Biden’s Domestic Policy Council. The team eventually settled on a plan that offered an additional $10,000 in relief for students who had been eligible for federal Pell Grants, which benefit lower-income families.

“In all of our work on college affordability, he was very conscious of racial equity and distributional impacts,” said Jared Bernstein, the chairman of Mr. Biden’s Council of Economic Advisers. In the student debt debate, he said, Mr. Ramamurti “brought a level of both policy expertise and emotion — which is a nice way of saying ‘pissed off’ — to those meetings.”

Some of Mr. Ramamurti’s influence on policy was more durable — if less visible. Mr. Bernstein said he had successfully pushed other administration officials to be more aggressive in setting a Labor Department rule that expands the number of salaried workers who automatically qualify for time-and-a-half overtime pay after working 40 hours in a week.

He coordinated the administration’s efforts to broker an agreement in early 2022 between the nation’s telecom giants and leading airlines over the deployment of 5G wireless towers near airports, which could have caused crippling disruptions in air travel.

He also helped lead much of Mr. Biden’s competition agenda, including his efforts to crack down on so-called junk fees charged by banks, airlines and online ticketing agencies. That effort spanned cabinet agencies and several parts of the West Wing, and colleagues repeatedly praised Mr. Ramamurti’s coordination skills.

It was a “major undertaking that could not have happened without Bharat’s ability to run good process and communicate so clearly and distill things down for people, including at all levels of the White House,” said Hannah Garden-Monheit, who now leads Mr. Biden’s competition council.

Mr. Biden has seen significant turnover from his original economic team. Along with Mr. Deese and Ms. Rice, he lost his first C.E.A. chair, Cecilia Rouse, and several senior deputies across the White House. His first labor secretary, Marty Walsh, stepped down to become the head of the National Hockey League players’ union.

X chief Elon Musk is calling for a truce between Russia and Ukraine after revealing that he refused a request by Ukrainian officials to provide Starlink satellite communications access as a means to carry out an attack on the Russian naval fleet off the coast of Crimea.

The incident was initially detailed in excerpts from Walter Isaacson’s new biography titled “Elon Musk.”

Isaacson revealed that Ukraine was planning a kamikaze-style drone attack using Starlink to guide the explosive-laden devices to their intended targets.

The author claimed engineers were ordered to “turn off coverage within 100 kilometers of the Crimean coast” and the drones “lost connectivity and washed ashore harmlessly.”

Musk disputed actively shutting down the network in a posting on X asking, “ELON PREVENTS NUCLEAR WAR?” but instead indicated that he simply refused a request to turn the network on in that area.

“The Starlink regions in question were not activated. SpaceX did not deactivate anything,” Musk replied.

In another X post, he fleshed out details a bit and denied aspects of media reporting on the matter.

“There was an emergency request from government authorities to activate Starlink all the way to Sevastopol. The obvious intent being to sink most of the Russian fleet at anchor,” he said.

“If I had agreed to their request, then SpaceX would be explicitly complicit in a major act of war and conflict escalation,” he added.

Did Musk Prevent Nuclear Strike Against Ukraine?

Musk’s decision not to aid Ukraine in an overt act of war as a civilian was solidified by what CNN describes as “an acute fear that Russia would respond to a Ukrainian attack on Crimea with nuclear weapons.”

That fear was not unfounded.

Isaacson’s book points out that Musk spoke to the Russian ambassador to the United States who “explicitly told him that a Ukrainian attack on Crimea would lead to a nuclear response.”

Encrypted texts published by the Washington Post reveal Musk repeatedly encouraged Mykhailo Fedorov, Ukraine’s deputy prime minister, to “seek peace” and avoid World War III.

Musk, according to the book, envisioned Starlink as being used “so people can watch Netflix and chill and get online for school and do good peaceful things, not drone strikes.”

On Thursday, he again called for peace from his X platform, which was formerly known as Twitter.

“Both sides should agree to a truce,” he wrote. “Every day that passes, more Ukrainian and Russian youth die to gain and lose small pieces of land, with borders barely changing. This is not worth their lives.”

Former Russian President Praises Elon Musk As ‘Last Adequate Mind In North America’

Former Russian President and current deputy secretary of the Kremlin’s powerful Security Council Dmitry Medvedev pointed out Musk’s concerns over “a retaliatory nuclear strike.”

And his praise for not turning on Starlink seems to hint that Musk did indeed avert escalating the situation.

In a posting on X, Medvedev delivered an incredible assessment of Musk going against the pro-war crowd in the United States.

“If what Isaacson has written in his book is true, then it looks like Musk is the last adequate mind in North America,” he wrote. “Or, at the very least, in gender-neutral America, he is the one with the balls.”

We were under the impression that under President Joe Biden, other nations would once again respect America.

Instead, Russia points and laughs at the “gender-neutral” administration with no balls.

Billy Horschel shot a 4-over 75 in the second round of The Open on Friday before most people were awake. He’s currently sitting below the projected cut line by a few strokes, but if he doesn’t get to play this weekend they might invite him back to Royal Liverpool to help with security because on the 17th hole he helped bring down a Just Stop Oil climate protester.

This is just the latest example of climate change activists interrupting a sporting event. Their tactics were discussed on Good Morning Britain earlier this week as locations around the globe experienced record temperatures.

Meanwhile, in America, protestors descended on Sebonack Golf Club in Long Island on Thursday.

Back to The Open, Horschel finished with seven bogeys on his card, including on the 18th after he helped deal with the protester.

Overall, it was a very memorable morning on the 17th as Travis Smyth hit a hole-in-one earlier in the day. Unfortunately for Smith, a very rough first round means he will finish behind Horschel.
