For a long time, the #SaveMayowa campaign to raise money for Mayowa Ahmed, who was stricken with Stage IV ovarian cancer, was one of the most talked about and trending topics on social media. It became a volatile saga  after  Mayowa's family was accused of scamming Nigerians of their hard earned money; in a controversial post by celeb Linda Ikeji.

Now the bad news...


- Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) will still be smarting over Derek's absence. Seriously? For heaven's sake, Derek is not dead (thank God for that), why must that still be dragged on? Yes.…
