(1) Most Remarkable Childhood Experience?

My most remarkable experience Was The first time my dad took me to location. I was so overwhelmed on seeing the faces of people I see in my TV box. Then we had the likes of Tony Umez, Funsho ADEOLU, Bob Manuel Udokwu, Femi Brainard, Ayo Mogaji,  amongst many others. I was so excited seeing them live, you know? As a kid it was really remarkable. Another remarkable moment was a period when my dad was running a program in LASU and there was a certain ATAS (Association of theatre arts students) week organized. This week required them inviting celebrities to come perform and then a singing duo called "Black Reverendz" were invited.  They were the rave of the moment then with their hit single "Ayangba girls". I was present at the show courtesy my dad. Was so excited to see them. That's another remarkable moment of my life.

(2) If you hadn't pursued this particular career choice, what line of career would you have pursued? And who(s) had the most impact on your choice?

 If I wasn't an actor,  I'd have been an OAP (on air personality). My dad actually Was The one who guided my choice and I'm grateful to him for that cos I can't imagine being anywhere else.

(3) High point and down point in your career so far?

The high point in my career Was The moment I was told I got a role on "Industreet". I was so excited. This is so, because for years I'd been attending Mrs Funke Akindele Bello's auditions to get a chance to be on any of her projects. So being called upon to take up the role of "Feva" was a big dream come true. Asides that,  the project was just something any actor that loves his art should be on, so being on it was a great privilege for me, so I can say that's the high point of my career and of course landing the role of "Timini" on Jenifa's diary followed. Down point of my career was being turned down repeatedly. This got me worried a lot that at a point I stopped attending auditions and took up a job somewhere for a while. But as God would have it, the audition for Industreet was one last shot I wanted to take at acting before either "giving up" or "relenting". The rest is history today.

(4) Do you a relative who had been or is in the entertainment industry?

Yes,  my dad is an actor/location manager. We've acted alongside each other at different times on set.

(5) Celebrity crush?

My celebrity crush "are" definitely Scarlett Johansson, Tiwa Savage and Simi.

(6) What people don't know about you? Or what they would hardly believe?

 What people don't know about me is that I'm a very shy person. And sometimes I get nervous before acting but it's never noticeable. Being nervous is usually born out of my anxiety to bring on my 'A' game.

(7) Your life tenements or principles that have guide you this far into success (so fans out there could learn)

Always be humble and resilient and the sky will be your starting point. That's my tenet.

(8) In your own terms- what would you call a "Nice time"? And how often do you have it?

 A nice time for me is having a good bath at home and watching a great movie with a bowl or plate of a nice meal in front of me, after which,  I have a good sleep.

(9) Your celebrities icons?

Celebrity icons yapa!  Lol...... Idris Elba, Johnny Depp, Al Pacino, Ramsey Nouah, Majid Michel, Bimbo Akintola,  Jjc Skillz, Funke Akindele Bello etc.  I picked these exceptional people not just because of their talents, but because of their resilience, hard working nature and consistency over the years.

(10) Life lessons and shout out

In life,  nothing lasts forever, just make good use of the moment so that history will be made interesting. A big shout out to everyone in Nollywood who has ever given me an opportunity to showcase my talent. God bless you all. Peace.

Nigerian Music legend, 2Face Idibia has said that the Boko Haram crisis has nothing to do with religion but rather the failure of the political leadership of the country.

He spoke to journalists in Maiduguri during his visit to displaced people, as part of his Foundation’s collaboration with United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) to drum support for the IDPs.
 
He said;
” I am here in Maiduguri with support from UNHCR to use my music in contributing to alleviate the suffering of our IDPs and other victims of insurgence.
“I feel honoured to work with organization like UNHCR, am just one person, when I went round some of these camps, I was saddened, I saw fear, sorrow and trauma, I feel disappointed looking at the faces and eyes of the IDPs. You will see hunger and object poverty. Unless Government and politicians shun injustice, corruption and remained focus and committed to our collective development, these same set of traumatized and displaced people in camps may turn up to be more dangerous in the society.
“Although, I have seen hope of life among some of these IDPs, all hands must be on deck to the needful by rendering support no matter how little it is. Presently I have a song, titled ‘Hold my Hands’, this song is on many platforms, all people need to do is to download it and use it ringing tone. It will only cost you N50 per month, but will surely contribute in giving hope of life to our traumatized victims of insurgency.
“In my little way, I have come and seen the live in camps and next week, when I go back to Abuja, we are going to do a concert as my proceed donation in alleviating the suffering of the IDPs.”
He announced that he will donate part of the proceeds from his new song launched on World Refugee Day this year to support the affected population through UNHCR., adding that he will be staging a concert in Abuja at the Hilton Hotel on 24 July as part of continuing efforts to support IDPs and returnees in Nigeria.

Hollywood star actress, Jada Pinket Smith, while on a radio program disclosed some really interesting facts about her past.
 
The mother of two and A-list actress revealed on a radio show ‘sway In The Morning’ on Wednesday that she used to deal drugs. 
 
The 45-year-old who had not been impressed by the way she was portrayed in the recent Tupac biopic, was talking about the early days of her friendship with the late rapper.
She said;
‘I haven’t really told the whole story,’. One of the things that is very interesting that I’ve never really said before is that when I first meet Pac… when we first met… I was a drug dealer.”I won’t get into the details, because I’m going to write a book about it, but that’s how we started.

She said ‘something very bad’ happened to her, prompting her to turn her life around.
‘I was coming out of the life, he was going more into the life.’


A housewife, Mrs Mutiatu Olaosebikan, has lost her seven years marriage for demanding money from her husband before sex.

An Igando Customary Court in Lagos today granted the request of her estranged husband to dissolve the union.

Delivering his judgment, the President of the court, Mr Adegboyega Omilola, said from all indications it appeared that the estranged couple were tired of the marriage and all efforts to reconcile them had failed.

“Since both parties had consented to the dissolution of their marriage, this court has no choice than to dissolve the marriage. “The court pronounce the marriage between Mr Sunday Olaosebikan and Mrs Mutiatu Olaosebikan dissolved today, both parties henceforth cease to be husband and wife.


“Both are free to go their separate ways without any hindrance or molestation,” he said.

The court also granted the custody of the only child of the marriage to the mother.

Earlier, Mr Sunday Olaosebikan, had told the court that his wife had always refused him sex until she collected at least N500 and that he was tired of paying N500 per bout before having sex with his wife.

He also told the court that Mutiatu had threatened to kill him, adding that she stabbed him with dangerous weapons whenever they had misunderstandings.

“My lord, she once stabbed me with a broken bottle on my head and I bled heavily which landed me in the hospital.

“Mutiatu places her kitchen knife under her pillow and when I queried her, she said her pastor instructed her to use it anytime she had bad dreams.

“But whenever I requested for sex or during an argument, she brings out the knife threatening to stab me,’’ he said.

He described his wife as an aggressive and violent person, saying “she may kill me if I continue with the marriage.”

“I ran away from the house to avoid untimely death.

“Also because of her bad behaviour, she could not get a steady job.”

The 42-year-old businessman begged the court to terminate the union on grounds of lack of love.

However, Mutiatu, said her husband, Sunday, usually discharged his sperm on the floor during sexual intercourse (withdrawal method).

“My husband no longer releases sperm into me when we have sex. He is in the habit of pouring his sperm on the floor, he does not want me to get pregnant again.

“He started this withdrawal method five years ago; I only have one child who is six years old; now, he can go more than six rounds, but will never release the sperm into me, instead he pours it on the floor.

“Whenever I queried him about the withdrawal method, he could not give a satisfactory answer,’’ she said.

The respondent said her husband was an “untamed chatterbox,’’ who cannot keep the family secrets.

She said he has a habit of sharing their family issues with his relatives, friends and even, the public.

“There was a day I was attacked spiritually and blood was gushing out of my eyes, nose and mouth.

“When I was rushed to a prayer house, I was told that my husband caused the sickness because he talks too much about our affairs in the public,’’ she said.

The 34-year-old trader also described her husband as tight-fisted as she has been the one taking care of their baby from birth.

“My husband turned me into a punching bag that anytime we had misunderstandings, he would beat the hell out of me.”

She urged the court to grant her husband’s request for the dissolution of the marriage as she was also tired of the
union.

After several unsuccessful interventions to save the 13 years marriage between Mr Sunday Okafor and his wife, Adetola, an Igando Customary Court in Lagos on Wednesday dissolved the union, citing husband’s infidelity.

The President of the court, Mr Adegboyega Omilola, said it was obvious that the estranged couple were tired of the marriage and all efforts to reconcile them had failed.

“Since both parties consented to the dissolution of their marriage, this court has no choice than to dissolve it. “The court pronounce the marriage between Mrs Adetola Okafor and Mr Sunday Okafor dissolved today, both parties henceforth cease to be husband and wife.


“Both are free to go their separate ways without any hindrance or molestation,” Omilola ruled.

Earlier, the 40-year-old trader, Adetola, had approached the court to end her 13-year-old marriage, citing the husband’s unfaithfulness.

She accused her husband of marrying another wife without her knowledge.

“My husband has been travelling to his village in the name of visiting his elder brother, not knowing that he had married an Igbo woman because I am Yoruba.

“I got to know about his secret marriage when he forgot his wallet at home, I opened it and found several bank deposit slips he used to send money to her.

“I searched for her name on the Facebook and I found several pictures of the woman, my husband with their baby displayed on her Facebook page.

“When I showed my husband the pictures, he did not deny it.

“My husband has rented an apartment for his new wife very close to our house,” she told the court.

The mother of three also described her husband as an ingrate, saying she married him 13 years ago when he had no job and he is still jobless.

“I have been paying our rent and the children’s school fees since the inception of our marriage.

“I bought phones and clothes for him; I also gave him money to take care of himself but he has rewarded my good deeds by marrying another woman,” Adetola also said.

The petitioner urged the court to terminate the marriage as she was no longer interested.

The estranged husband, Sunday, claimed that his wife pushed him into adultery.

He said, “My wife’s behaviour pushed me into finding solace in another woman.

“She does not give me happiness, she is so arrogant and does not respect me because she is the one paying our rent and the children’s school fees.

“I was a musical director, she ruined my business because she used to accuse me of dating the women who come to my studio,

so they stopped coming and the business crumbled.

“I can’t pick a call in her presence, she will say I am talking to a woman.”

The 43-year-old Okafor added: “My wife is very dirty, she does not wash or sweep the house, everywhere in the house smells.

“She keeps plates of food for four days or more and I always do the cleaning, bathe the children and wash their clothes because

I am always at home.”

The respondent consented to the dissolution of the marriage, saying “I am also fed up with the union.”

Arsenal's squad has been hit by a bout of food poisoning in China. Per Mertesacker and Olivier Giroud were unable to take part in a 1-1 draw against Bayern Munich.

Sead Kolasinac started but was forced off in the first-half after throwing up on the pitch.
Arsenal won in a penalty shoot-out to decide the winning team but were more concerned about the lengthy casualty list.

Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey were also unwell but able to come on from the bench. One of the backroom staff has also been suffering from sickness.

Laurent Koscielny was absent with a back problem and assistant manager Steve Bould has been flown home after requiring surgery in Australia to cure a hernia in his neck.


'We have a virus in the camp,' said Wenger. 'The doctor thinks it is food poisoning.

Mertesacker and Giroud were sick. Kolasinac was sick. Theo Walcott and Aaron have had a little bit of food poisoning as well. I don't know what they ate.'


They don't care! R.Kelly has 14 upcoming shows planned and there's still huge demand for tickets amid allegations he's running a "cult."

Kelly's gigs were already scheduled before the scandal broke, but all of them are still scheduled, starting July 28 in Virginia Beach and running through October 8 in Ontario, Cali.

TMZ reached out to all of the venues - 11 confirmed nothing's changed. In fact, some like the Chene Park Amphitheatre in Detroit, told the news outlet they've been getting a high volume of calls this week alone and are almost sold out.

Others told them they hadn't even received angry calls from customers over the claims R. Kelly is holding women against their will.


Controversy has arisen over the death of a 29-year-old graduate of the University of Bauchi, Kolawole Idowu, at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja. Family members of the victim said although Kolawole died at LASUTH, they believed his condition was worsened by doctors at the Ikeja Medical Centre, a private facility on Allen Avenue, Ikeja.

Punch Metro gathered that Kolawole, who concluded his youth service in Lagos sometime in April, took ill a few days afterwards. He was reported to have complained of “teary eyes and body pains” and had gone to the Ikeja Medical Centre, which was the family hospital. It was gathered that like other children of the family, he was born at the hospital.

After a doctor allegedly recommended some malaria drugs and later an eye drop, the situation was said to have worsened, leading to his admission to the hospital. Punch correspondent was told that the hospital later said he was manifesting signs of a mental illness and began treating him for “psychosis.”


When there was no improvement, the hospital was said to have referred him to LASUTH, where he went into a coma and later died at the Intensive Care Unit.

The victim’s brother, Kunle, told Punch Metro that his late brother’s medical condition was not handled properly at the medical centre, adding that he was given some injections which affected his health.

Kunle alleged that the injections made him to misbehave, saying anytime the effect of the injections wore off, he would regain his senses, run back home and beg to be taken away from the hospital.

He explained that when he (Kunle) observed that their maternal grandparents were adamant on keeping him (Kolawole) at the hospital, he challenged them and broke some property in the house, which led to his arrest and detention.

Punch Metro learnt that there was a crisis in the house on May 17, 2017, when late Kolawole ran home from the hospital.

The grandparents were reported to have called a doctor at the medical centre to come with an injection for psychiatric patients to calm him down, a suggestion rejected by Kunle.

“I was angry because each time they give him the injection, he lost his senses. They (grandparents) asked me to shut up. For two weeks, that was what they told me. I was angry and I couldn’t take it again because I knew the doctor was on the way with the injection. I lost control and started shouting that they should not give him any drug.

“He was always coming home each time he realised that they were not treating him well. But my grandparents would take him back and he would obey so that he would not look like a disobedient child. The injection was killing him.

“That day, they asked the house help to lock the door. Because I could not sit down and watch him take another injection, I broke the door and left the house,” he added.

Punch Metro learnt that some relatives alerted the police of Kunle’s action and he was detained for a day.

Kunle said after that incident, he was told that his brother’s condition had aggravated and he had been taken to LASUTH.

He explained that Kolawole was admitted to the psychiatric ward of LASUTH, based on a referral letter from the medical centre.

Kunle said his brother was put in the same ward with patients who had serious mental problems and he spent about 10 days in the ward.

“He was later taken to the ICU where he spent two months and struggled to live. But the damage had been done because my brother had spent two weeks at the medical centre, 10 days at LASUTH psychiatric ward before he collapsed and was taken to the ICU.

“Some specialists at LASUTH later examined him and said it was not a psychotic case. They moved him to the ICU because he was at the point of death. I watched over him at the ICU for the two months.

“At one point, the seizure he was having stopped, and I thought he was getting better, not knowing my brother was dying,” he said.

Punch Metro learnt that the Idowu family comprised four children – Kunle, Kolawole, Adeniyi and a younger sister who is in the United States.

The children’s father died while they were young, while their mother, Mrs. Mopelola Osiyemi, travelled to the US in 2016.

Adeniyi, who studied in the Cyprus University, got a job in Dubai where he is now based.

Kunle and Kola, however, stayed with their grandparents at their family house on Bolanle Close, Allen Avenue, not far from the Ikeja Medical Centre.

Adeniyi, who said he was on holiday in Nigeria, told Punch Metro that he was shocked that his brother, who laughed with him during their time together, suddenly lost control of himself and went into a coma.

While insisting that Kolawole was not a drug addict, he said he had arranged with an Iranian doctor to move him out of the country, but was told that the brother must come out of a coma before he could be flown out.

He said, “The doctors at LASUTH told us that he was not mad; that he had bacteria which probably got into his brain. They said the medical practitioners at the first hospital messed him up. I called a doctor friend, who said my brother had an infection called meninges and it affected his brain. She said antibiotics could have cured him.

“Each day he spent at the ICU cost us N50,000. And that was aside the N100,000 on drugs and another N500,000 on a particular test. We spent millions of naira on treatment.

“When my brother died, we had to give out some of the drugs he didn’t use. But my eldest brother, Kunle, decided to bring home a particular one recommended for us from the medical centre, called Haloperidol. When I googled it, I discovered that my brother manifested the exact signs stated in the abuse of the drug, including stiffness and coma, before he died.”

Punch Metro was told that the deceased, who marked his 29th birthday in coma on June 23, became a graduate in 2013 after studying Accounting.

Punch correspondent was told that he died around 4pm on July 1, 2017, at the ICU of LASUTH.

“My brother, Kolawole, has never slept at a hospital before.   We want the hospital investigated. We want the government and the Nigerian Medical Association to intervene,” Olaniyi said.

The victim’s mother, Mopelola, in an emotional message she broadcast on Whatsapp a few days to her son’s death, alleged that the doctor who treated him apologised to the family.

“To God be the glory; this is very said. But I must tell it. I gave birth to Kolawole 29 years ago at the same hospital that administered wrong medication that has put him in a life-threatening condition. The doctor that started his treatment went to my aged father of 86 years to apologise, confessing that he gave Kolawole a wrong medication.

“I believe this is the beginning of Kolawole’s healing process. What can I do at this stage? We are spending millions on hospital treatment in an intensive care unit because of one little mistake that shouldn’t have happened. God, you know best. Kolawole must live to testify to your glory,” the message read.

She told Punch correspondent on the telephone after the son’s death that the hospital must be held accountable for the alleged mistake.

She said, “He was never diagnosed. I don’t know my son as a drug addict. I left Nigeria 11 months ago; are they saying he took to drugs within that period, a son I have known for a long time? They should have conducted proper checks on him. We have spent millions of naira just because of one mistake.

 “They insisted on treating him even when they lacked the competence because of the money they wanted to make from my family.”

LASUTH’s reaction

Punch Metro had a meeting with the Chief Medical Director of LASUTH, Prof. Adewale Oke, and some top principal officers of the government hospital.
Oke said there was a limit to the information that could be released due to the ethics of the medical profession.
He noted that Kolawole was examined and treated by specialists.
The hospital’s consultant psychiatrist, Dr Atilola Olayinka, said he was the first to have contact with Kolawole after he was brought to the hospital.
He said, “He came in as an emergency case and we didn’t have any other information to make us doubt the fact that it was most likely an ongoing psychiatric illness. On that basis, we received him to manage him for the illness.
“In the course of treatment,we,however,saw other symptoms that did not jell with a pure case of psychiatric illness. We investigated and called in our medical team to review it with us. When his level of consciousness was going down, we had to move him to the ICU.”
The consultant medical officer, one Dr Bamisile, said he observed fissures, including epileptic fits, neck stiffness and running fever.
“We saw that he could have some organic problems, apart from a functional psychosis. The following day, I went to see him and observed that his consciousness was going. I examined and saw that there were other medical issues. He was jerking and had epileptic seizures. His neck was also stiff. He had running fever at a time,” he added.
He explained that the deceased also had fissures and inflammation of the brain, “which could be caused by some organism.”
At this point, Bamisile said he asked that a microbiologist and a professor of neurology attend to Kolawole.
LASUTH’s consultant neurologist, Dr Olaitan Ojelabi, said the 29-year-old appeared “febrile, with restive signs and other symptoms, pointing at a case of meningoencephalitis (inflammation of the linings of the brain).”
 “This condition could be caused by bacteria. To treat this, we upgraded his antibiotics, among other treatments,” he added.
The Consultant Anaesthesia, Dr  A.A. Majekodunmi, said the victim was later placed on a life-support machine.
“After about two weeks in the ICU, he started having problems with breathing and we had to put him on a ventilator to help him breathe. We repeated some investigations to find out what was wrong with him. The family was aware of the prognosis, and they were aware when it was getting worse.
 We saw that he was not responding to some medications that we gave him. Eventually, we had to put him on a supportive medication for his blood pressure until he eventually died. He was on life support for about a month before he passed on,” she said.
A professor of Neurology, Prof. Yomi Ogun, expressed sadness at the death of Kolawole, saying a partial autopsy revealed the deceased’s brain was swollen.
He noted that nobody could tell what really killed him “until the autopsy is subjected to histology.”
He said, “He had inflammation of the brain. If you have meningitis, there are two signs that we look out for, which were there. And maybe, some signs of inflammation; but we need to subject it to a histology for a definitive answer.
“When you suspect that your patient has meningitis, what you need to do is to commence a therapeutic trial of anti-TB medication. Because the moment they get unconscious, it might be difficult to reverse it and that was also done.
“By the time I got to see him, he was already in a coma. He was having convulsions all the while. We modified his treatment and he was stabilised for a few days.”
The CMD of LASUTH, Oke, said the hospital started treatment based on the referral letter from the Ikeja Medical Centre, adding that nothing in the letter showed a case of malaria.
“His referral letter stated categorically that he had a mental issue. There was never a question of malaria. When patients come like that, we take them as we see them and we manage them based on whatever our specialties say.
“He had been outside our hospital for two weeks. The referral letter brought here says he had been having neuro-psychiatric symptoms,” he added.
