In case you somehow missed all the Internet buzz of the past 24 hours, reports claim that American singer, Usher Raymond transmitted Herpes to a woman and paid her over a million dollars to keep shut.

Herpes is a common sexually transmitted disease [infection, if that's what you prefer] that stays in the body for life if you contact it.

The virus is common and causes sores on your genitals and/or mouth. It can be annoyingly painful, but it is said to not lead to serious health problems.

You can contact it by having actual or oral sex with someone that has it, and mind you a lot of Nigerians have it too but only few people actually know they do.
