Y'all know Emma Nyra.
She is Iyanya's triple MG Label First Lady.
And here's a message some guy sent her on Facebook. *lol*
There was confusion today, Saturday at the Benin Airport after a teenage boy allegedly stowed away in the tyre hold of an Arik Aircraft from Benin to Lagos.
The Aircraft with registration number, 5N-MJG Flight 44, left Benin Airport at 9am for Lagos with top officials of the Edo state government on board.
And when it landed at the domestic wing of MMA, Lagos, the teenage boy, who apparently had sneaked into the aircraft main wheel well jumped out, shocking everybody.
Arik's spokesperson, Banji Ola said:
They had come to the Nigerian High Commision to renew their passports. Some had flown, driven to the venue, all at expensive rates only to be told the office wasn't open to business for that day. That they have to come back another day.
Watch this woman break down in tears and clearly say she was going to tear and burn her Nigerian passport as others too vent their anger.
What do you think? Do you blame her for saying that?
Prominent lawyer and civil rights activist, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), was been kidnapped yesterday, Friday evening at the Ehor stretch Benin-Auchi road in Edo state.
The Commissioner of Police, Edo State Command, Mr Foluso Adebanjo, confirmed the incident, saying 4 policemen lost their lives following the attack on Mr Ozekhome, who was taken away to a yet to be disclosed destination.
Legal practitioner, Festus Keyamo has expressed shock over the incident, and pleaded with the kidnappers to set Mr Ozekhome free without any harm.
Prophet Christopher Ukpala says he is a spiritual doctor and he is giving Governor Babatunde Fashola a 2weeks ultimatum to either reopen the Yaba railway market or risk losing two of his kids.
Here's what she told Movie Moments:
"I don't have anything to say about the tales flying about on my relationship. And I don't know where the stories are emanating from. I'm neither confirming nor denying anything. I don't want to talk about it."
Vast is back home now, hale and hearty.
And in a very fresh chat with Saturdaybeats, Vast recounted his experience, battling with cancer, right from when pictures of a sick him hit the internet.
Here's what he said:
"When the picture leaked, we were not happy initially. I was very skinny but when I saw the response from the fans, I was shocked. I did not know people liked me that much.
Trust me; there was a female fan that said that if I died, she was going to die. I nearly cried and said God, if you save me, I would make these people one of the happiest people on earth.
That was why I went to the studio and began singing like I never did before. I took myself back to the days when we sang 'Yori Yori',"
Recounting how it began, the dark-skinned singer said he thought it was fever. It was when they went to London for an extensive test that they knew what was wrong with him.
"It all started when we went on an American tour and I started feeling feverish. I found myself taking my bath with hot water even on a very hot day. That was when I started noticing something was wrong.
I noticed that whenever I drank alcohol, the fever would come in an aggressive way. I eventually went to a hospital in London. The doctor told me not to worry that everything would be fine. He said to start the treatment, they would have to do something that would allow them take something from my spine. It was a very painful procedure."
He told Saturday Beats that there were times when he felt like he was dying.
"There was a time that I felt I would die. My only fear was that I was not close to God. I was afraid that if I died, I would not make it to heaven.
We musicians have a particular lifestyle. You may plan to be upright, but when you go into entertainment business, it would change you.
I was regretting that I was not close to God. I did not want to go to hell. I felt so happy that I survived," he said.
Assured that he is healed, he said that at the end of the treatment, he did a blood test and they said he was okay. The singer told Saturday Beats that the treatment cost him about £58,000.
He was supported by some close friends like P-Square, KCee, Flavour and a London-based friend, Ugonna, who offered them both accommodation and about £30,000.
"After the treatment, I did two other tests and the doctors confirmed that I was okay. After three months, I am meant to go for a PET scan. I could remember that before the treatment, we had a meeting and agreed that we had to bring £50,000. After the seventh chemotherapy session, the whole money finished. They had to send more £8,000 into the account I was using. The last time I went to withdraw money, what was left there was £120. So I used about £58,000," the singer said.
He told Saturday Beats that the doctors warned him to stay away from unprotected sex for about three months. They said if he impregnates a girl, the baby may not form normally as he still has residues of the chemotherapy in his body.
According to him, they were 'just kissing'.
Here's what he told Saturday Beats Punch in a phone chat.
"We didn't have sex. We talked about it. There were some things I said I wasn't going to do in the house.
I respect my mum so much. Before I got into the house, there were things I told my mummy I wasn't going to do. I wasn't butt naked. It looked as if we were having sex in that bathtub. We were just kissing. I couldn't take advantage of Beverly because I respect her so much.
"We will try and work things out and see how we can make our relationship work. At the same time, I hope the people of Nigeria don't hate Bev. I would love to come to Nigeria and experience Nigerian culture and take lots of pepper,"
Punch reports Angelo also said he wasn't in any relationship before he got into the show.
"I didn't have a girlfriend before I got into the house, but I had someone I told to wait for me so that we would see what would happen when I get out of the house. I will be focused on what I want to do as a person and then focus on my relationship with Bev and see where we will take it to," he said.
Ese has deleted her Twitter and Facebook accounts. No word yet from the church.
Meanwhile, here's a touching letter Ese wrote to Jesus before she publicly made her confession.
I think I have erred this long because instead of getting to know you, I chose to pretend I already knew you.
