A lingerie shop is encouraging couples to shop in-store together this Christmas after it was inspired by two customers.

The couple, Leigh, 34 and Nicola, 32 visited SoS Lingerie located in Hoar Cross, Staffordshire and purchased a beautiful set of lingerie together.

Staffordshire Live reports that the store has now introduced ‘Date Days’ on the run-up to Christmas to motivate other couples to do the same.

Store owner, Justine Oldfield, 55, from Mickleover told Staffordshire Live: “For too long purchasing lingerie has been about women only so it was great to welcome in this couple who inspired me to try something new.

“We have found that when a partner attends a fitting with his wife or girlfriend they realise how buying underwear is not just a case of grab and go.

“It gives them a whole new perspective on the complexities of getting the right fit – and how it can transform the look of outfits and the confidence of their partner.”

Mrs Oldfield received a LoveBiz Entrepreneur of the Year award earlier this year.

The store is now taking bookings for the Date Days which include drinks and snacks provided by The Deer Park in Hoar Cross.

When asked how about the feedback received from the first few bookings, Mrs Oldfield said: “Feedback and bookings have been extremely positive since launching this new way of lingerie shopping.

Published

on

Juju music crooner, Wale Thompson of Lalale Friday fame, is set to begin a legal battle with Africa’s global bank, United Bank for Africa, over an alleged infringement on his copyright.

In a letter by the musician’s lawyer, Justin Ige, written to the CEO of the bank, it was alleged that the bank deliberately used his hit song LALALE FRIDAY on the verified social media handle of the bank to promote a #throwback Friday in 2017 without his consent.

According to the legal counsel, the act violates the copyright of Wale Thompson as enshrined in the constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria.

It reads ‘Our client’s copyright is guaranteed under Nigerian copyright act CAp C28 LFN 2004 and unauthorized use of our client’s musical work to support and promote your business and brand amount to infringement on our client’s copyright”

The letter however asked the bank to compensate the artist to the tune of fifty million naira as a restitution for the infringement and failure to do this will lead to litigation.

It was gathered that bank neither responded to the letter nor yanked off the music from its social media page.

Clearing agents to FG: Increase age limit of imported vehicles to 15 years

Published

on

Clearing agents have asked the federal government to increase the age limit of vehicles coming into the country to 15 years.

Kayode Farinto, acting national president of the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA), said this in a felicitation message to Muslims on this year’s Eid-el Kabir celebration.

The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) had recently reduced the age limit of imported vehicles from 15 years to 12 years, warning that any vehicle older than 12 years shall be impounded.

In the statement, Farinto also said the country’s automotive policy should be reviewed.

“The age limit on imported vehicles needs to be reviewed to at least 15 years from the current 12 years. The entire auto policy is a scam that has continued to enrich a few individual Nigerians at the detriment of our economy,” the statement reads.

“With the introduction in the last 10 years or more, we are unable to produce ordinary radiator, meanwhile few people are smiling to the banks with our money under the guise of being local assemblers and manufacturers. It is high time we revised this policy.”

Farinto further emphasised the need for the federal government to have a consistent policy in the maritime industry, adding that frequent changing of transportation ministers is detrimental to stakeholders’ businesses.

“This trial and error of the government must be stopped forthwith, just when we thought there is eureka in the transportation ministry, the government decide to change the minister to bring a new person that will start learning and commence visitation in the next three months,” the statement adds.

“We are stagnant and not really moving forward with these retrogressive steps every time and it is encouraging neocolonialism.

“The federal government in line with international best practices needs to reorganise and reorientate the management of Nigeria Customs Service from the present moribund one.

“The present one has continually brought confusion to the trading community with her high-handedness, without control and checks to the extent that the federal ministry of finance has lost her supervisory role, hence the high level of non-professionalism of the service to the nation.”
