Mr Muslim! Ahmed Musa Slams Fans Who Think He Shouldn’t Have Danced To A Christian Song

Lmao.. After Nigeria qualified for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations yesterday Ahmed Musa joined his collegaues in the dressing room to sing and worship God. The player later posted a clip on his instagram page and two Muslim guys pointed out a fault.

One told him he shouldn’t have danced to a Christian song, while another berated him. An angry Musa however replied both, telling them not to tell him what he should do with his life.

Lol. If only they know the God he was singing to. Indeed, it’s a privilege to know God…

Ooni Lets Us Into His Heart, Palace, Growing Up With Kore Ogidan

Ooni Lets Us Into His Heart, Palace, Growing Up With Kore Ogidan

If you are someone that loves the King, or just wants to know more about Ooni of Ife, this is one interview you should read.... to crown it up, it’s a very interesting one. Kore Ogidan did a good one. Enjoy....

What has been your experience since assuming the throne?
My experience so far has been a life of service and giving back. I don’t have a life of my own as I constantly work towards giving back to the society. It’s about making sure that everyone is alright. Many people in the community look up to me and study everything about me – my body language and the things I do before they take their decisions. I am a natural ruler and the monarchy, especially of Yoruba land, is very ancient. This is where we all came from and it is still intact. People believe very much in the monarchy and for that, everything should flow properly, and that is what I do.



As a young man who would probably want to do the things people of your age do, does the demands of your position overwhelm you?

Naturally, I am a very simple person. The Yoruba race has been proven to be the oldest race in the world – by virtue of empty DNA tests and mitochondria DNA tests. The things we do here have to do with our ancient beliefs, tradition and heritage. The Yoruba people have contributed richly to the way the world is emerging daily in terms of our dress sense, arts, culture and especially music. We play a very pivotal role in the entire continent of Africa. I am the custodian of the spirituality and heritage of the race. It is my duty to ensure that everything remains intact. Of course, I feel the gap in the regular life of a young person, but as a custodian, I must carry the heritage well. It is one of the things I had to trade before coming on my throne. Unfortunately, the things I used to do, I do them no more.

How do you combine your life as a king with that of a corporate worker?
I am an accountant but I did many engineering works – engineering, procurement and construction – before I became king. By virtue of my business, I built factories and homes. I came up with different products and initiatives that involve providing shelter for the teeming population of Nigeria. Also, I invested in banking. I am a director in one of the leading mortgage banks in Nigeria. But like I said, I don’t do the things I used to do anymore. The work I do now is far more than just working. This time, my work is all about humanity and the heritage of upholding the Yoruba culture and tradition. Also, it involves giving back to the less privileged. In summary, it is a life of service all the way.

What do you like to eat?

I like good food. Now, I have a restriction on my diet; having many dos and don’ts on what I eat. As a king, I have many things that I can’t afford to do just like that. But basically, I like to eat rice and other regular food.

As a kid, did you always know you would end up being a king?

The prophesies came before I was born. Also, kings are actually born, not made. In my case, before I was born, it had been predicted that I would be king and to God’s glory, that prophesy stood and came to reality. There are many predictions and destinies that actually don’t get fulfilled but thank God that mine came to pass. It was God who made mine to become a reality. I had been very conscious of it growing up. Also, before I became king, as a prince, I had been friends to many other kings. I had learnt the rope for many years before I assumed the throne.

Apart from friendship with other kings, what other characteristics prepared you for the throne?

One major characteristic that prepared me for my throne was selflessness. I believe in considering others  before myself. That is one of the true characteristics of a good leader. All along, that has been my mantra and watchword. To God’s glory, that really prepared me for this position.

Another thing was taking up responsibilities. As a leader, one has to do that. You must also be very protective of your subjects. I decided to carve a niche for myself in youth emancipation. Anything I do everyday has to do with the youth of this country. When I preach and breathe, I consider everything about them. For me, the throne is dedicated to the Nigerian youth. They are always coming here; there is an influx of youths around me. I believe they own this country and very soon, they will take over what rightfully belongs to them. I am a very strong advocate of the Nigerian youth.

Knowing that you were going to be king, you still decided to pursue education

Education is important. One must prepare oneself. In this day and age, just being a prince is not enough. You must be well educated and exposed. You must be able to reach out to the world; the world is fast becoming a global village. If one weren’t educated, how would one be able to interact with other people from around the world? My race as a Yoruba, from the throne of Oduduwa which I occupy, has hundreds of millions of people in all the continents of the world. How would I interact with them if I were not educated?

When you were invited to Buckingham Palace, Prince Charles promised to visit your palace during his visit to Nigeria. What changed that you had to go to Abuja instead?

Because of a very long standing relationship with the British monarchy and the kingdom of Ife, when I became the King of Ife two years ago, I was indeed invited to the Buckingham Palace in England. And yes, it was agreed that whenever he was going to visit Nigeria, he would pay a visit to my palace. But because we have many first-class monarchs in Nigeria, it would have seemed unfair if he only visited my palace without reaching the other palaces of these monarchs. So, we the kings agreed amongst ourselves that it was better for us to meet at a common ground. The common ground we have in Nigeria is Abuja. It is not like we went to welcome him. Ideally, he would have visited all our palaces, but for the lack of ample time, we decided to meet at the common ground. These kings are myself, the monarchs of the South and the North of the country.

Does it upset you when you see people of the new generation who can’t speak Yoruba?

It is not about getting upset; it is about orientating them, about getting them to associate themselves with their heritage. Without your heritage, you are a nobody. You should let the world know who you are and know your tradition. You must be proud of your heritage. Many children don’t even know how to speak their languages. However, we have different programmes, pamphlets, awareness campaigns and other resources that help people know that they should be proud of their heritage. So far, it is working and we do that all over the world. We have track records of testimonials to prove that we carry that boldly and let people know the importance of your culture.

What is your favourite possession?

I don’t really believe in worldly things; they come and go. I will say that my greatest asset that I thank God for is patience. God has given me a lot of patience in life. Speaking of physical assets, I like good cars and building good homes.

Tell us about your notable works as a developer.

I have built event centres, factories, lead recycling plants, steel rolling mills and galvanising plants. I was the first to work on Jakura Mines. We needed to resuscitate it and we discovered the depth and potential of the deposit in the said mines, then the government gave it out on concession to Obajana Cement. I worked there very actively. I worked with the National Iron Ore Mining Company and did many EPC contracts.

For real estate, I did quite a lot in terms of building and development of many warehouses. Also, I did a lot of foundation construction, construction of piles, soil improvement techniques and technologies. I set up many industries along the line, coupled with a lot of good equipment. We were the largest real estate development in Lagos at some point. We also did the piling at Ilubirin (Obalende area on Ikoyi, Lagos). I did quite a lot of projects in Yaba (Lagos), Abuja and many other places.

What’s your favourite movie to watch?

I like to watch a lot of Yoruba movies but I like Game of Thrones – although that is not a movie but a television series. It has to do with kingship; so, I developed an interest in it.

You must have had a great birthday with your wedding just two days apart. Tell us about that experience for you.

I don’t know why the whole world made a big deal about it. To the glory of God, marriage is one of the things that one should do. Honestly though, I was never really single. I have a permanent Olori in the palace spiritually but I just joined my new one physically. The permanent Olori in the palace is the Yeyemolu, who is the first Olori in the palace and she has a spiritual role to play in here. As a matter of fact, the Ooni can never be single because he permanently has a wife in the palace. Even if there is no woman in the palace, she, the Yeyemolu, is there always. Many people probably just thought I was single all the while. What I am going to say about my new wife is that to the glory of God, she is a good lady.

What are your hobbies?

I like to motivate people and I play lawn tennis. I actually play a lot of sports. I have many gifts and I try things. I play table tennis and badminton very well and I want to improve on some indoor sports like squash and others.

Do people let you win (because you are the Ooni) when you play against them?

I am very good at the sports I play; so, I will beat anyone. I went for competitions.

Do you like to drive?

I haven’t driven in a long time, since I became king. I loved driving but now, they won’t even allow
me to drive because they’d rather I concentrate on my duties here in the palace.

What kind of a child were you?

I was a very inquisitive kid; I wanted to know everything. I asked questions a lot and you could never get bored with me. When people met me, they always immediately concluded that I was a very inquisitive child. I liked to think outside the box. When a child is inquisitive, they could be a little troublesome. I became very mature at an early stage, when responsibilities started coming in.

Knowing you were going to be king, were you spanked as a kid?

Of course! But they were advised never to touch or hit my head, even as a kid. But, everywhere else was beatable. I became very conscious of my head growing up.

What was your worst childhood experience?

When I got into secondary school at about age 11, there was a classmate of mine who beat me up one day by the classroom and gave me a very deep scar on my hand. The scar is on my left hand and it almost rendered that hand useless, especially for me being left-handed. Every time I see that scar, I remember the experience.

Left-handed people (especially in Yoruba land) always try to change their children’s active hand to the right. Why did your parents leave yours on the left?

Mine was pretty deep and when my parents tried to change it, it almost became a problem. They had to leave me like that, so it wouldn’t affect me growing up.

What other fond memories do you have of your childhood?

I used to win a lot of prizes as a kid and that always made my parents proud. Another memory was getting into Loyola College, Ibadan, and there is a story to that. I always came first in class in primary school. One day, I came third, losing to a boy and a girl who both came first. There was no second position and I came third. My parents were very disappointed and I promised them that I would finish well. When I went in to sit my common entrance examination, I came first in my entire primary school and with the tough competition there, I was able to enter Loyola College. I got in on merit. That made my parents proud and I was able to prove to them that I was still in control of the situation.

Tell us about your background.

I was born to Prince Oluropo and Wuraola Margaret Ogunwusi of blessed memory. They are both from Ife and my dad is from a ruling house. I am the fifth generation of the Ojaja Dynasty and I became the Ooni of Ife. My ancestors were Oonis as well till 1880 before it came into our family. My parents were strict, especially my late mum. I will never forget my mum. My father is still alive but we don’t see because of tradition. I attended two primary schools which are Subuola Memorial Nursery and Primary School, Agodi, Ibadan, and Ibadan District Council, Akobo, Ibadan. For my secondary education, I attended Loyola College, Ibadan, and for my tertiary education, I attended The Polytechnic, Ibadan.
I then did my professional examination, ICAN, and proceeded to do other professional courses in line with my background as an accountant.

Even as a king, do you cook in the palace?

That is not even possible. As the king, you have to knock 16 inner and outer doors before you get to me. It’s a big process and there are so many processes and procedures that I met from my ancestors before becoming king; so, no, I don’t cook. However, before I became king, I did cook a lot and very well. My mother taught me how to cook.

Tell us about your first girlfriend.

In primary school, there was a girl I liked and when I was about five years old, our parents used to call us husband and wife. That’s unbelievable, but I won’t go further than that. Then, in secondary school, I had a small feeling for someone and I used to write letters to her. I still have those letters till today. I mean, I am human.

Your regalia looks amazing. How do you really like to dress?

To the glory of God, my dress sense has to have a proper blend of spirituality and modernity. My dress sense must connote who I am as a spiritual head of the Yoruba race. Before Christianity or Islam, the Yoruba heritage and culture and tradition have remained intact to date and we didn’t blend our tradition at all in Ife. There is a particular divination and spirituality we go through and I had to master them and see how to blend that with my everyday life. This is why my dress sense depicts what happens in Ife, and by extension, the Yoruba land.
If you are someone that loves the King, or just wants to know more about Ooni of Ife, this is one interview you should read.... to crown it up, it’s a very interesting one. Kore Ogidan did a good one. Enjoy....

I haven’t driven in a long time, since I became king. I loved driving but now, they won’t even allow
me to drive because they’d rather I concentrate on my duties here in the palace.

What kind of a child were you?

I was a very inquisitive kid; I wanted to know everything. I asked questions a lot and you could never get bored with me. When people met me, they always immediately concluded that I was a very inquisitive child. I liked to think outside the box. When a child is inquisitive, they could be a little troublesome. I became very mature at an early stage, when responsibilities started coming in.

Knowing you were going to be king, were you spanked as a kid?

Of course! But they were advised never to touch or hit my head, even as a kid. But, everywhere else was beatable. I became very conscious of my head growing up.

What was your worst childhood experience?

When I got into secondary school at about age 11, there was a classmate of mine who beat me up one day by the classroom and gave me a very deep scar on my hand. The scar is on my left hand and it almost rendered that hand useless, especially for me being left-handed. Every time I see that scar, I remember the experience.

Left-handed people (especially in Yoruba land) always try to change their children’s active hand to the right. Why did your parents leave yours on the left?

Mine was pretty deep and when my parents tried to change it, it almost became a problem. They had to leave me like that, so it wouldn’t affect me growing up.

What other fond memories do you have of your childhood?

I used to win a lot of prizes as a kid and that always made my parents proud. Another memory was getting into Loyola College, Ibadan, and there is a story to that. I always came first in class in primary school. One day, I came third, losing to a boy and a girl who both came first. There was no second position and I came third. My parents were very disappointed and I promised them that I would finish well. When I went in to sit my common entrance examination, I came first in my entire primary school and with the tough competition there, I was able to enter Loyola College. I got in on merit. That made my parents proud and I was able to prove to them that I was still in control of the situation.

Tell us about your background.

I was born to Prince Oluropo and Wuraola Margaret Ogunwusi of blessed memory. They are both from Ife and my dad is from a ruling house. I am the fifth generation of the Ojaja Dynasty and I became the Ooni of Ife. My ancestors were Oonis as well till 1880 before it came into our family. My parents were strict, especially my late mum. I will never forget my mum. My father is still alive but we don’t see because of tradition. I attended two primary schools which are Subuola Memorial Nursery and Primary School, Agodi, Ibadan, and Ibadan District Council, Akobo, Ibadan. For my secondary education, I attended Loyola College, Ibadan, and for my tertiary education, I attended The Polytechnic, Ibadan.
I then did my professional examination, ICAN, and proceeded to do other professional courses in line with my background as an accountant.

Even as a king, do you cook in the palace?

That is not even possible. As the king, you have to knock 16 inner and outer doors before you get to me. It’s a big process and there are so many processes and procedures that I met from my ancestors before becoming king; so, no, I don’t cook. However, before I became king, I did cook a lot and very well. My mother taught me how to cook.

Tell us about your first girlfriend.

In primary school, there was a girl I liked and when I was about five years old, our parents used to call us husband and wife. That’s unbelievable, but I won’t go further than that. Then, in secondary school, I had a small feeling for someone and I used to write letters to her. I still have those letters till today. I mean, I am human.

Your regalia looks amazing. How do you really like to dress?

To the glory of God, my dress sense has to have a proper blend of spirituality and modernity. My dress sense must connote who I am as a spiritual head of the Yoruba race. Before Christianity or Islam, the Yoruba heritage and culture and tradition have remained intact to date and we didn’t blend our tradition at all in Ife. There is a particular divination and spirituality we go through and I had to master them and see how to blend that with my everyday life. This is why my dress sense depicts what happens in Ife, and by extension, the Yoruba land.

I Might Report Abuja Photographer To Police, Lilian Afegbai Says

I Might Report Abuja Photographer To Police, Lilian Afegbai Says

Nollywood actress, Lilian Afegbai has said she might report an Abuja photographer she contacted for her birthday photo shoot for not meeting up after full payment and not feeling remorseful about it all. Speaking with Sunday scoops, the actress said;

“Let’s even assume the money I paid her wasn’t enough, she should have just said she couldn’t do the job. If she knew she couldn’t pull it off, she should have let me know beforehand. After making me go all the way from Lagos to Abuja for a shoot, she disappointed me.

Some of my loved ones even felt I was stupid for going all the way to Abuja to take pictures but there was a particular look I wanted to achieve and that was why I insisted. The most annoying thing is that she was just so rude and nonchalant about it.


It is not acceptable the way some people act these days. We need to understand that having a strong work ethic is very important and professionalism is key. If you know you can’t do something, be upfront about it.”

Reacting to people who said she shouldn't have brought it to social media, she said;

“Before I made the post online, I pleaded with her to do the right thing. But she sent me a voice note, sounding nonchalant about what she did. That was what got me upset. At the end of the day, people are entitled to their opinions and I am also entitled to my opinions; I am a human being too.”

On what is currently being done to remedy the situation, Afegbai said:

“She said she’s not going to refund my money. The last time I called her phone, she hung up. If she’s annoyed that I went on social media, then she must be very silly. I went on the Internet because I was upset and I wanted people to know what she did so she wouldn’t do it to another person tomorrow.

It was my birthday pictures and it was very important to me. I knew that it was going to make me happy and that’s why I decided to do it. I know at the end of the day, she’s going to pay my money.

I’ll make sure she does that. I will still reach out to her but if she doesn’t budge, I will go to the police.”

Wahala! Someone Mistakenly Pays N1m Into Uber Driver’s Account & Driver Isn’t Ready To Return It

Wahala! Someone Mistakenly Pays N1m Into Uber Driver’s Account & Driver Isn’t Ready To Return It

Now, this is one story that should go viral and it’s just very unfair! Haba! The man Bunmiano Barcelona D'greatest, who took to Facebook to cry out says Uber and the police aren’t even helping matters. His story....


Help!!! I Mistakenly Sent N1m To A Uber Driver

Please read carefully before commenting
I have a very serious issue that has been a pain on my neck and I will try as much as I can to summarize everything
I sent a sum of N1m to a Uber taxi driver's account number on the 20th October, 2018. This money was a part payment bill for one of my family members who is battling with a life-threatening health issues. That happened about 4 weeks ago.

This is how the whole thing happened
A friend of mine paid me a courtesy visit and when he was about leaving, I used my rider app to request a ride for him and the driver came and took him to his destination. He told my friend the estimated cost of the fare was N4,800 but my friend didn't even bother to check because he felt he probably would not lie about it.

My friend called and told me the fare was N4,800 and I requested for the Uber taxi driver's account number after which I made the payment. The next day (20th October), I needed to make a transaction of N1m to someone for a part payment bill of my family member's treatment oblivious of the fact that I actually made the payment to the Uber taxi driver's account number. This was because I added him in my beneficiary when I wanted to make the payment.

I went to the rider app to get his contact, only for me to realize he actually inflated the fare from N3,400 to N4,800 which I literally paid for. You can see he's not an honest person but I wasn't really bothered about that.

I called and pleaded to him to refund the 1m I sent to his account. At first, he acted as if he didn't receive any money but after series of calls, he later confirmed it. I sent my account details to him and he promised to refund me on Monday as it was weekend.

Monday came and the dude started acting funny. He would pick my calls and remain silent. There
were times he gave the phone to a lady to talk to me. Sometimes he yelled at me to stop disturbing him, and a point, he even stopped picking my calls

I mailed Uber and narrated everything that transpired. They responded requesting for evidence to back up my claim which I provided. I took screenshots of the first (inflated fare) and second payment and attached it to my massage. They responded telling me I should exercise patience and that they will look into my issue

It's been 4 weeks now and Uber has been lackadaisical towards this issue. I have messaged them several times and they seem to be less concerned about it.

With the way Uber has been acting towards this issue, one could conclude that they're trying to cover up this guy. Someone that can easily call and resolve this issue.

They have just been acting like they're more concerned about their own pockets than customer's satisfaction. I expect them to have taken up the issue for properly investigation despite providing solid evidence.

Please everyone! I have tried and I'm already fed up. Their customer care is my last resort but they have been nonchalant despite knowing the name, vehicle type, and license plate number of someone working for them. Even the Uber driver in question has failed to refund the money and has been avoiding me.

I went to the bank recently and his account has been frozen but I haven't been able to get my money.
This country is just messed up. Even the police aren't helping matters. They are demanding their own share of about 150k.

Dozens Arrested During London’s Climate Protest

Dozens Arrested During London’s Climate Protest

Eighty-five people have been arrested as thousands of demonstrators occupied five bridges in central London to voice their concern over the looming climate crisis.

Protesters, including families and pensioners, began massing on five of London’s main bridges from 10am on Saturday. An hour later, all the crossings had been blocked in one of the biggest acts of peaceful civil disobedience in the UK in decades. Some people locked themselves together, while others linked arms and sang songs.

By 2pm the blockade of Southwark Bridge had been abandoned and protesters moved from there to Blackfriars Bridge, where organisers said they were soon to move west towards Westminster Bridge.


Demonstrators occupied Southwark, Blackfriars, Waterloo, Westminster and Lambeth bridges.

The Metropolitan police said all the bridges had since reopened

and that most of the arrests had been for obstruction under the Highways Act.

Instead Of Joining PDP As A Governorship Aspirant, Otedola Endorses APC's Sanwo Olu

Nigerians were waiting for Billionaire Femi Otedola to announce he has joined politics as many believed he was going to make a grand entry few weeks ago, coming out as PDP's Lagos candidate for 2019 Governorship candidate, especially when one of his pals, made the announcement on social media.

As Nigerians debated this, FO kept mute in all, and instead responded with a photo of him in Paris. In all people still believed he just wanted the atmosphere to be calm, before he will declare his grand entrance into politics.

Alas, FO was far from that. The billionaire instead of competing with Babajide Sanwo-Olu has now endorsed the APC candidate.


Sanwo Eko as he is popularly referred to now, visited the business man at home yesterday and FO posted pics today writing;

“Dinner at my residence yesterday evening with my childhood friend, APC governorship candidate, Jide Sanwo-Olu; the governor in waiting.”

Don't you just love the way these men respond to rumours? Hilarious!!!

CNN’s Jim Acosta Returns To White House After Judge’s Ruling [Yes o]

CNN’s Jim Acosta Returns To White House After Judge’s Ruling [Yes o]

A federal judge on Friday ordered the Trump administration to restore the press credentials of Jim Acosta of CNN, handing the cable network an early win in its lawsuit against the president and members of his administration.

Presiding over one of the first major tests of press rights under President Trump, Judge Timothy J. Kelly of United States District Court in Washington ruled that the White House had behaved inappropriately in stripping Mr. Acosta of his press badge shortly after a testy exchange at a news conference last week.

The administration’s process for barring the correspondent “is still so shrouded in mystery that the government could not tell me” who made the decision, Judge Kelly said from the bench. Taking away the pass that gave Mr. Acosta access to the White House amounted to a violation of his right to a fair and transparent process, the judge ruled.


Soon after the ruling, Mr. Trump said the White House would tighten its rules for how journalists must comport themselves at the White House.

“People have to behave,” the president said in the Oval Office. “If they don’t listen to the rules and regulations, we’ll end up back in court, and we will win.”

He then reassured her of his love, saying he will be her Zombie forever... His sweet words below...


Part1
Today marks the day I made one of the best decisions of my life, to marry my best friend!
A best friend isn’t someone who’s just always there for you. It’s someone who understands you a bit more than you understand yourself and today I’m happy and have no regrets that I married my best friend,the one i laugh with, live for, dream with and love. Most people don’t really know who you are or what you represent. I have seen them insult you, call you all sorts of names.” She’s Yoruba, She’s too Old for you, She’s biracial” Bla bla bla!!! Like I didn’t know all this b4 I married you. They even came up with stories of how our late Mum never liked you but God knows that few weeks before she died you were the one getting up early to go stay with her at St. Nicolas hospital, even keeping her friends and pastors at your place for weeks because we were living on the mainland then. She always called you “My Daughter” RIP MumπŸ™πŸ½ Your Daughter” and your grand children are doing well MumπŸ™πŸ½πŸ˜‡.... Maybe divorcing you to make you a baby mama will make some people happy and me unhappy; sorry that is not our portion.”Tufiakwa” Remember Love sees no color, love has no age limit nor race. But one thing is sure, I am here to protect and defend you from all those insults.
I took a vow to defend and protect you and our beautiful children on this day 5 years ago and no matter what happens, you and the kids come first. Maybe thats what makes me different from other guys; you guys are my priority. So let’s cut all that “Blood is thicker than water” BS Obviously you guys are not the water. Let’s not forget that Blood makes u related and Loyalty makes u family.
You’ve been through a lot because of me and I know how bad it’s hurts. So please forgive those who insult you, attack you, battle you or take you for granted. More than this...forgive yourself for allowing them to hurt you. Continue being the strong woman our daughter Aliona has as a role model and our son Cameron will know and understand what to look for in woman when he’s grown.

Part 2 (last)
We’ve been together for over 16years and married for 5yrs. You are still the same woman and I will never forget the day I met you. How you used to book shows for us and all due to the fact that you worked in an agency (FKG2). I remember how our former manager Howie-T used to tell us how nice you were to us getting us shows and all. Today the world doesn’t know all that. Instead they call you Gold digger. If anyone should be called Gold digger here, it should be me 😁 I remembered you gave me your official car few weeks after we moved into lagos and started dating. That was the first time in my life experiencing a car with air conditioning πŸ™ˆ and every night i would sleep inside the car.πŸ™ˆ You made me a better man Lola and i owe you nothing but love and loyalty. Let me stop here because it’s our Wedding Anniversary. No need for too much talk. Happy Wedding Anniversary to us Lola we are so blessed and should be grateful to God for keeping us alive and together; failure is not our portion.
Thank you for accepting me as I am flaws & all. Thank you for the greatest gifts, our children. Thank you for helping me (us) through our career; for all the gigs, free consultations etc. Thank you for standing by me regardless of all the untruths spread about you. Thank you for caring for my Mother till her final days, even accommodating her church pastors in your home for weeks. Thank you for being an exceptional role model to our kids and being the best partner for me. I'm thankful for you, you get me, specially made for me till infinity. Oh lest I forget, thank you for my 1st air conditioned experienceπŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ.... I love you Madam Kofo (Snr), Happy 5th Wedding Anniversary Babe.πŸ’ I go be your Zombie for LifeπŸ’˜ #ZomeLove

Part1
Today marks the day I made one of the best decisions of my life, to marry my best friend!
A best friend isn’t someone who’s just always there for you. It’s someone who understands you a bit more than you understand yourself and today I’m happy and have no regrets that I married my best friend,the one i laugh with, live for, dream with and love. Most people don’t really know who you are or what you represent. I have seen them insult you, call you all sorts of names.” She’s Yoruba, She’s too Old for you, She’s biracial” Bla bla bla!!! Like I didn’t know all this b4 I married you. They even came up with stories of how our late Mum never liked you but God knows that few weeks before she died you were the one getting up early to go stay with her at St. Nicolas hospital, even keeping her friends and pastors at your place for weeks because we were living on the mainland then. She always called you “My Daughter” RIP MumπŸ™πŸ½ Your Daughter” and your grand children are doing well MumπŸ™πŸ½πŸ˜‡.... Maybe divorcing you to make you a baby mama will make some people happy and me unhappy; sorry that is not our portion.”Tufiakwa” Remember Love sees no color, love has no age limit nor race. But one thing is sure, I am here to protect and defend you from all those insults.
I took a vow to defend and protect you and our beautiful children on this day 5 years ago and no matter what happens, you and the kids come first. Maybe thats what makes me different from other guys; you guys are my priority. So let’s cut all that “Blood is thicker than water” BS Obviously you guys are not the water. Let’s not forget that Blood makes u related and Loyalty makes u family.
You’ve been through a lot because of me and I know how bad it’s hurts. So please forgive those who insult you, attack you, battle you or take you for granted. More than this...forgive yourself for allowing them to hurt you. Continue being the strong woman our daughter Aliona has as a role model and our son Cameron will know and understand what to look for in woman when he’s grown.

I Am Neither A Fraudster Nor Gigolo – Leye Kuti

I Am Neither A Fraudster Nor Gigolo – Leye Kuti

Nollywood actor, Adeleye Adeshile, popularly known as Leye Kuti, has debunked rumours going around that he acquired two new cars through fraudulent means.

After uploading the picture of two new cars said to belong to him on his Instagram page, some people insinuated that he must have got the money to acquire the cars through fraudulent means or by being a gigolo.

In a telephone conversation with Saturday Beats, the actor who is now based in the UK, said he made his money by working hard and not by defrauding people.


He recalled that when he was still acting in Nigeria, he had challenges paying his bills, so he had to open a boutique to augment his income.

“Some of the people who made comments said acquiring a car is not an achievement, I don’t mean to brag but I have other things that are worth more than that. One of the cars was my birthday gift, and the other one was a gift to my mother. That was why I bought two cars.

“My life doesn’t end on social media; I am a very private person. When I got broke, I was not able to keep up. Movies paid me less money than my business so I leveraged on the fame that came from movies to run my boutique. People always wanted to buy things from me because they knew me on screen.

“There are many luxury things I do that I don’t post on my social media platforms. Before I left Nigeria, some people thought I was a gigolo because of my lifestyle and the kind of cars I drove. Some of them also thought I was fraudulent, but I work hard for my money.

“I only shared my recent post because I wanted to motivate people with my story. They were questioning me because I said I moved to Egbeda, Lagos when things got bad for me. Many people do not even know that I was born into a rich family; my father has nine houses and one petrol station,” he said.

Adeshile also explained how he struggled to survive while he was broke; shedding more light on the reason he had to move to Egbeda after things became difficult for him financially. He noted that despite the fact that he was going through some economic constraints, he was still driving a luxurious car before he had an accident.

“When I moved to Egbeda, I was living a quiet life. There was even a time when I had no money and the only thing I had was a visa. It was even difficult for me to raise money to get a plane ticket. My family members bought a ticket for me and I was able to move out of the country.

“After a while, I moved back to Nigeria and immediately, I got an endorsement deal with a property firm in Abuja; this made me get back on track. I made plans and I finally moved back to the UK in 2016 to continue work. I got a good paying job in London and I was still acting, which is where the money came from.

“The period I moved to Egbeda, I was still driving a 2012 convertible, even though I did not have enough money. In the middle of these challenges, I had a terrible accident with my car; it rammed into a truck on Fatai Atere Road in Mushin.

“Things just got worse for me; movies were not really paying my bills but it opened other doors for me as an actor. In the middle of all these, I had a child in England so I had to cater for her; the bills were too much for me. I could not keep up.

“In a week, I had to send a minimum of £500 to my child; money was not coming in because people owed me a lot while I was running my boutique. I uploaded the pictures of my cars to appreciate God and encourage people who have given up,” he said.

Stop Dating Married Men, Dayo Amusa Advises

Stop Dating Married Men, Dayo Amusa Advises

In an era where some young ladies believe it pays to date married men, popular actress, Dayo Amusa, has advised them to desist from such act. While speaking to Saturday Beats, the actress noted that such ladies should remember that someday, they would be a wife and mother and would not want the same thing to happen to them.

“Frankly, as a public figure and based on what I stand for, I would not encourage a young lady to chase after married men. Some might say that married men would take good care of them, but it is wrong. It is not something I would encourage the youth to do.

Also, I do not think that having numerous boyfriends gives you the privilege of having a perfect guy as it could even cause confusion at some point,” she said.
