It's that time of the year again when houses get lit up for the festive season.

But there are some that are quite outrageous and absolutely insane!

We have heard cases of houses being burnt to the grounds, families losing their lives and various gory disasters as a result of overly lit houses.

Year by year; it seems people just wont stop going overboard to light up and decorate their houses with the most eye popping lights.

Here are some of the insane ones...

●Living it up with wifey

Love him or loathe him; the latter is simply because; in life, you cannot please everyone. Unperturbed by the constant name dropping and image slaughtering, he chooses to wax stronger by the day. Amidst controversies; the love his people have for him is unrivalled. They reckon a good and generous man cannot be faulted.

Lately, he personally took it upon himself to see that the ailing Nigerian musician; the rainmaker- Majek Fashek gets rehabilitated; providing for his every whim and rendering all support possible to keep him standing again. He has supported numerous known and unknown musicians; perhaps because he was at one point in his life a musician himself and is passionate about music.

In these times of hiked fuel prices in Nigeria, his fuel stations still sell at the regulated market price. Pioneer MBGN, Omasan Buwa attested to that recently, she told our source she purchased a full tank at his fuel station at the regulated price compared to other fuel stations, enroute APC National Chairman, Oyegun's daughter's wedding. One of the reasons why his people love him and guard him jealously.

Ayiri is a bold one when it comes to issues affecting the minority. He is the people's activist and he sees that the common man gets a meal too. His passion remains getting involved in the issues of his people and assuring them of peace and security at all times.

Who wouldn't love him for that?
