Juliet Ibrahim Confirms Her Divorce from Hubby, Kwadwo Safo

Long before now, before actor Ik Ogbonna slipped up yesterday and mistakenly uploaded a private apology video he had made for his girlfriend Ghanaian actress Juliet Ibrahim, there had been rumours that Juliet Ibrahim had split from her husband. A rumour Juliet and her husband repeatedly denied. But now, Juliet has come forward to confirm their split.

In a statement her people sent to, Juliet Ibrahim says she has found it necessary to let her fans know today that, she is no more married to Kwadwo Safo —and the marriage ended some time ago. Reason for the split is due to ‘irreconcilable differences’ but that they have agreed to stay in close contact for the benefit of the child.
With the interest of an innocent child on the table, we ask that you treat this difficult but necessary decision to put her divorce out there for her fans to know with respect.
Some marriages work and others do not…But when there is a child involved, the interest

Tonto Dikeh Speaks about Her Signing into D'Banj's DB Record

Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh who recently got signed on to D'Banj's DB Records, got chatting with HIP TV after a recent concert. And an obviously too excited Tonto had this to say about her new deal:
I feel great, I feel honoured, I feel blessed, Like I have butterflies in my stomach, I am excited about everything.  I'm overjoyed. And how it happened, I do not know. It just worked itself out.
About her upcoming album with D'Banj, life in the future:
"I don’t think my fans are expecting exactly what I’m about to give to them. Because I’m even surprised about what I’m about to give to them. So, it's something that nobody expects.  I don’t expect you to actually expect what I’m about to do. But yes, there will be an album, an explosive one, good stuff coming out real soon. We are not joking at all."

Blog Reader was Abused as a Child and It's Affecting her Relationship

Woman Worried About Relationship
Hello Laila, please I need fellow blog readers' help.
I am a 24 year old promising young lady residing outside Nigeria. I recently just obtained my Masters degree and plan to move to Nigeria this June 2014. God blessed me with great looks so getting a guy has never been an issue for me. But there is a problem.  
Whilst studying for my Masters' degree, I met a young man in his mid 30's who loves me with every fiber of his being. This man is any woman's dream but the issue is that he loves me more than I love him and it's not that I don't love him.
