A Los Angeles based musician named Paz placed thousands of fake copies of Justin Bieber’s latest album “BELIEVE” in major retailers on Tuesday, April fools day. The 25year old told the press that he planted about 5000 copies of the album that appears to be Bieber’s “BELIEVE” but actually contained a copy of his own CD. The Associated press also confirmed that the fake CDs which looked exactly like Bieber’s own right from the barcode to the pop star’s cover portrait were placed in sales racks in L.A based retailers including Wal-Mart, Best guy and Target. The CD contains 13 tracks from the artist.
Paz whose full name is Paz Dylan says, “The world won’t really miss a Justin Bieber record”. He said he chose the big retailers because they would serve as a means of putting his music directly into the hands of consumers.

Sophia Reacts To Ex-Husband Tchidi Chikere’s Twitter Assault: “I Wish You The Best In Your New Marriage”
The Tchidi-Sophia drama continues as Sophia has responded to Tchidi’s Twitter rant.
In a statement obtained by NigeriaFilms, Sophia responded to every allegation Tchidi made – and at the end – blessed his new marriage!
Read it below!
“Tchidi Chikere, I read all you said about me and I laugh. Is that the best way to justify yourself? It is well. I will not exchange words with you still because there is nothing you say or write about me that will shake me because those that put their trust in God, He never fails them.
Why are you lying to people? For them to turn around and clap for you and justify what you did? Is it because people who know the truth are saying it and it’s hurting you and you are now looking for a way to justify yourself. I give 10 years of my life and this is how you repay me? By disrespecting me and my family?
You said I used juju to marry you. If truly I and my family used juju to hold you, let God who sees everything judge me and you.
You bring money for the upkeep of your kids and you are writing about it? Like seriously, are they not your kids? Whose responsibility is that? And who is disputing that with you? You said since you married me that I have not given you no love, no affection etc. But you forgot the interview you granted to Punch newspaper in 2011 saying that I am the best thing that have happened to you.
You said I never had time for you? When you are always filming in the east and I won’t see you in months. I played the role of father and mother to the kids…and I laughed the more when I saw where you wrote that I didn’t feed you for 5 days.. Is this all in desperation to justify yourself? Wow!!
You said marriages are not contracted on the pages of newspaper and granting interviews yet you people have been granting interviews upon interviews since 2012.. Have I said anything against you? But I won’t say anything against you. Keep saying lies about me thinking you can tarnish my image by putting up this childish and immature behaviour.
Even if you say that I am a prostitute tomorrow or a thief, people who know the truth know the truth and God knows everything and sees the heart and he will pay everybody back according to our deeds. So am not shaking!!
I will never say anything against you to gain favour from people! No you can’t hide pregnancy. I gave you my life for 12 years, gave you 3 lovely boys, gave you a home. And you always say to me then, I was a good wife to you and you know it. I was loyal to you and never cheated on you. I swallowed and stomached so many things just to make my marriage work. I turned deaf ears to so many things and covered my eyes to so many things.
I remember all the stories I heard about your escapades with other women, but did I leave you? I stayed with you because marriage is for better or worse and when you started your affair with Nuella in 2010, what did you say to me when I confronted you?
I stayed, endured and prayed every night. Have you forgotten the day I almost committed suicide? The first time you left me and the kids? I wanted to end my life but God saved me. Even as you left us in 2012, I keep saying to people that my marriage is intact and I never changed my name from Sophia Tchidi Chikere till date.
Have you not done enough to me? You are married now and still I wish you and your new wife well. Why can’t you leave me alone to face my children and fill up the vacuum this has created in their lives? You say such evil things against their mother and they are hearing it from their schoolmates. Their schoolmates are talking about it and asking them questions everyday and yet you are not satisfied. You claim you kept quiet because of them, yet you have been talking and tarnishing my image since 2012? Yet I kept mute. I have not and will never say anything bad against you. Vengeance is of the Lord, unless he is not on the throne.
You put up my pictures with my friend to use against me? You want to use it to justify what you did to me? What you put me through for years? You said he is my boyfriend that I go to see in London and I ask you Tchidi, when I was with you, did I not go to London 2 or 3 times yearly to buy clothes for my boutique? Everybody knows that I am a business woman and I buy my products from London and America. And so because I have a friend in London, I now go there just to see him? Lol He is my friend, my pal, my buddy and my best friend.
We started being good friends in 2013 after Chidi left me and ended our marriage. He is someone that is very close to me and my confidant. All these years I have had women as best friends and they all betrayed me, and I decided to have a guy as my best friend. We go everywhere together and he assists me in shopping and buying things for my shop etc I can’t deny him. He is my friend. People that know me very well will tell you that I love taking pictures and so we took lots of pictures and the guy posted it on his Facebook page and some people copied it and started posting it online. I have also kept mute about it and I would have still kept mute if not that Tchidi raises it and wanted to use it to tarnish my name.
But it’s well. My kids read what their daddy wrote about me and they asked me to respond and tell the whole world that you are wonderful mother and that they know and they are seeing everything and won’t say anything till they grow up! So am responding to this because of my three lovely boys that I live for, that am blessed with.
I want to beg Tchidi to please allow me to concentrate and train my kids with God’s grace and help. I wish him the best in his new marriage. I bless his new marriage with his new wife and I wish them well. This will be my last statement. Even if Chidi pulls the mountain to paint me black, I will not respond again.

“The man had brought out some naira notes to give Suleiman and in the process, some fell off.
“The accused on the pretext of helping to pick the money kept N40, 000 and handed over the rest to the complainant.
“The complainant suspected a foul play and before he knew it, Suleiman had jumped into the Atlantic Ocean to avoid being caught.
“He stayed in the ocean for about 30 minutes to allow the divers that had attempted to arrest him leave,’’ Orji said.
He said the accused was later apprehended by some security men when he came out.
The offence, Orji noted, contravened Section 285 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
Suleiman, however, pleaded not guilty.
In his ruling, the magistrate granted the accused bail in the sum of N20, 000 with one surety in like sum and adjourned the case to April 23.
