Tears of surprise, fulfillment and accomplishment stream down beauty queen, Miss Lola Adeoye, as she was pronounced Miss Nigeria USA 2016
Miss Lola Adeoye, currently a 3rd year JD/MBA student at the Howard University School of Law, first contested for the Miss Nigeria USA pageant in 2010. Since then, She has contested in and lost 8 pageants, and each loss was like more steps away from achieving her goal.
Finally, on the 28th of May 2016, she beat out the 18 contestants to emerge winner of Miss Nigeria USA 2016.
Following her struggle story, the journey hasn’t been an easy one. Trying to achieve a particular goal and failing in the attempt on so many occasion is enough to question one’s self esteem and the determination to relentlessly continue at the same goal despite discouraging results is quite a feat and a virtue many of us lack.
In Queen Lola’s case, her strong resolution finally got her goal and this is why she is our WCW for today!

After a 44 year relationship between Colin Dunn and Sally Smith, the duo decided it was time to take the commitment further
Colin first met in Sally – a mother of four – in 1972 behind the bar of a social club he visited every weekend after work. After a while, he asked her out and she said ‘yes’
‘Sally used to serve me every weekend when I’d go in after work. We got chatting and she got used to me going in. Eventually, I asked her out.’
The couple only got engaged last year after all their children have left home and they finally had time for themselves.
And so before friends and family, 84 years old Colin and 82 years old Sally got married at St Mary’s Church in Middleton, before heading over to the social club where they first met to enjoy a meal after the ceremony.
With the right partner, love is just a beautiful thing.

There are 99 simple ways to inflict pain on a cheating ex and Game Of Thrones is one of them!
This was sent to Reddit by a young man who after cheating on her ex, was being punished by getting Game of Thrones spoilers every Monday.
The ex after blocking him in all her social media platforms, opened a fake account on facebook and sent him a friend request
“The Monday after season six premiered she unblocked me and I saw I had messaged from her,” the pained young guy narrated, “I thought maybe she forgave me and we could move on, but it was literally just every spoiler from the first episode.”
And till now, he’s got nothing to look forward to every week from GOT because of his ex.
‘How can I get her to stop?‘: He asked Reddit for advice as despite his numerous attempts to block his ex, she always finds new creative ways to get her message across.
“I know I didn’t treat her very well but I just want to watch my favourite show again” The poor guy lamented.
Reddit readers called him a ‘cheating a**hole’ and sent him spoilers themselves as punishment.
Lol, this is just a brilliant revenge plot!
