Kehinde Said He Would Buy Me A Car, New House. Why Now? I Don't Need That - Funke Akindele

In a revealing chat with E-247 magazine, Funke Akindele sort of replied her husband's interview with Encomium magazine that he was building a house for her before she walked out.

Though Kehinde was the first to go public with the news of their separation via popular social network site, Facebook, Funke Akindele gave her ears to her in-laws who felt she could still change her mind and that separation actually is not the solution to the problem.

Funke told E24-7MAGAZINE on Friday:
That place is not for me, I have been through hell and back. 
I was abused emotionally and verbally. Really, I felt we could work things out when the trouble started two months after the marriage. 
But I made up my mind and shut the door of the marriage at him when the trouble was

Bukky Ajayi Debunks Her Death Rumor

Earlier on today, word spread on the social media that Nollywood has yet again lost an icon - veteran actress and broadcaster, Bukky Ajayi. While some reported that she is critically ill, others said she was dead.
But the aged actress told P.M.NEWS on phone this morning that she is hale and hearty.
My son, I was surprised to hear the rumour as well. About four people had called me concerning this issue, but I didn’t take it seriously until my daughter and her husband also called. I’m hale and hearty, and nothing is wrong with me.  
If it was at a point when I was ill, perhaps, I won’t be surprised. But I’m very much okay now –that’s why I’m wondering where the rumour emanated from.”

According to Pope Francis, gay people should not be judged or marginalised.
While speaking to reporters on his flight back from Brazil, his first foreign trip, Pope Francis said he wouldn't judge gay priests for their sexual orientation.
I have yet to find anyone who has a business card that says he is gay. They say they exist.  If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has goodwill, who am I to judge?  
The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains this very well. It says they should not be

Why I Am Not Married - Jude Okoye

•Jude Okoye
Here's what Jude Okoye, PSquare's elder brother and manager said in an interview with Bayo Adetu PMNews.
  • Peter and Paul already have kids; and we all know their heartthrobs. Can you tell us the one in your life?
Why are you people always forcing me to come to the public? I don’t want to be a celebrity and I am not one of them. I don’t sing, dance or act.

I love where I am now (hiding myself) and if I love to do that, how do you expect me to introduce the lady I am dating? Back to your question, I have somebody, yes. That’s all.
Like I said, I have somebody but I won’t tell you her name.

Egor Efiok Denies Saying Oge Okoye Had Hypertension


Sometime in May, while trying to explain why Nigerians need to give Monalisa Chinda and her new man Lanre Nzeribe a break and love them as a couple, publicist Egor Efiok revealed that hate comments thrown at Oge Okoye had gotten her hypertensive.
Egor had said:
Why can't you feel happy for Monalisa after knowing what she has been through? Do you want to kill all our celebs with your bullying? I thought you had learnt after Goldie. Celebrities are human and have feelings.  
In her attempt to re-brand herself, you bullied Oge Okoye and made her hypertensive. "She's an mgbeke"...she's this...she's that..." you kept firing! While you were busy bullying her for nothing, more talent scouts were noticing her.  
You can read Egor's story here in case you missed it.
That comment drew more negative reactions from the public and in a recent interview with Stella Dimokokorkus, Egor tried to explain what she really meant.

  • There was a recent uproar about a letter you wrote and I would like you to explain a few issues that I believe the public would also want answered. First of all, people were annoyed about you revealing Oge Okoye's medical history.
Well, about that, I must admit that I can be over emotional and spontaneous. If I'd given myself 24
