The 18-year old daughter of Kris & Bruce Jenner will now be known in the modelling world simply as Kendall.
“I want to be taken seriously,” she told LOVE magazine for her cover story in July, according to The Cut.
“People think that this [success] just came to me. But it didn’t. What I have has almost worked against me. I had to work even harder to get where I wanted because people didn’t take me seriously as a model. Because of the TV show.”
Adding, “I went on castings and some people weren’t feeling me because of my name. But it was great when people didn’t recognize me. I was like, ‘Thank you. Please don’t recognize me.’”
Kendall’s modeling career has taken off in the past year. She made her modeling debut in February during New York Fashion Week, where she was almost unrecognizable as she strutted her stuff in the Marc Jacobs show. Then in May, she landed her first major spread in the French edition of Vogue.
According to the Christian community in Gwoza, the Borno town which Boko Haram recently declared an Islamic caliphate, her men are being beheaded by the insurgents while the women are forced into unwanted marriages.
Confirming the development Rev. Fr. Gideon Obasogie, the social communications director of the catholic diocese of Maiduguri, stated that the sect may have embarked on a general killing spree, but Christians have been at the receiving end.
The insurgents have reportedly promulgated their own laws, beheading men who refuse conversion to Islam and marrying off their wives to their members. “It is quite clear that terrorism has no friend, but it is abundantly clear that the Christians are worst hit,” Obasogie said.
“The whole town and the Parish rectory have been occupied by the terrorists, so many structures and items have been vandalised. Dozens have been killed and a lot of church structures have been burnt down. Christians in the town are really in a terrible situation, a moment of great persecution.”
In addition, he said “Christian men were caught and beheaded, the women were forced to become Muslims and were taken as wives to the terrorists.” Narrating the severe condition that people have been experiencing in the region, Obasogie maintained that the actual situation has gone out of control.”
“It might surprise you to know that no one knows the state of affairs in this terrorist zone. The houses of Christians that have fled are now occupied by the ‘haramists’. Their cars are used by the terrorists,” he said, adding that some Boko Haram sympathisers around the town showed the terrorists Christian homes, and Christians hiding were identified and killed.”
Nigeria's top flight football league was suspended on Wednesday after referees were directed not to take charges of matches in protest at a governance crisis in the domestic game.
Nigeria Premier League organisers the League Management Committee said it was "impossible for us to organise games" as a result of the directive from the Nigeria Referees Association (NRA).
The NRA earlier ordered that all referees slated to officiate in the Premier League should withdraw from matches "until sanity is restored" in the national game.
The directive, contained in a circular signed by NRA secretary-general Moroof Oyekunle Oluwa, also applied to the second-tier National League, Nigeria Federation Cup and the women's leagues.
The Premier League and National League are both in their 25th week of action.
Defending champions Kano Pillars currently top the table with 43 points.
League Management Committee official Salihu Abubakar said clubs and their sponsorship partners have been informed and teams directed not to proceed to venues of their scheduled games until further notice.
"We are already running a tight fixture schedule and are hoping that this crisis is resolved soon so the season can be concluded in time for our clubs to prepare for continental registration and participation", the statement concluded.
Nigeria's football association the NFF has been in crisis since July, when world governing body FIFA suspended the country from all international competitions over what it said was "government interference" in the running of the game.
The ban was later lifted.read more
