How Kemi Olunloyo predicted Mercy Aigbe’s marriage crash in 2016

In December 2016, Kemi Olunloyo warned Mercy Aigbe-Gentry of an impending marriage crash. She warned the actress to stop flaunting herself on Social Media and spend more time with her husband.

….and it just happened! What Kemi Olunloyo said in December 2016 happened today, as news has gone viral of Mercy Aigbe’s marriage crash.
Read Below what Kemi said in 2016…
“@MercyAigbeGentry is a talented #Nollywood star with a flair for “online glamour”. Nothing wrong with glamming yourself up for your fans. Most Nigerian actresses are narcissistic females to begin with and I’m a certified narcissist myself.
“Many Nigerian females are fake and can’t even define their own personalities but look up to female stars and want to be like them. This is why I insist I’m NOT and will never be a role model.
“I have mentored many kids but never want any of them to ‘be like me’. There are attributes of me some parents don’t like yet they want their kids to be me. I’m outspoken, blunt and keep it real. Most women in Nigeria are not but stay as solid mumus. There is only one #KemiOlunloyo .
“Last month I warned Mercy in a post that she’s going to end up like @TokeMakinwa if she doesn’t limit her glam posts online. Honestly your husband is out there Mercy.
“#MajeAyida was busy elsewhere while Toke was glamming up the Gram. Mercy shows off her phone case engraved with her image, something her fans will be thirsting for too.
“They log on fast to see the latest fashion sense. It’s nice to be addicted to celebs. Even I as a media celebrity in US/Canada have now become the top media celebrity in Nigeria still has my own favourite celeb @aihmakhuolutoyin.
“Spend more time with your husband Mercy. I’m seeing things you don’t see. They call me the #Snitchlady. *winks*..and stay beautiful young lady.”
Kemi Olunloyo over time has earned herself a questionable image and reputation as a result of her brand of commentaries on social media as well as her eccentric displays. She was jailed in port-harcourt over defamatory comments she made against Pastor Ibiyeomie.
She was later granted bail by a Chief Magistrate court, and denied bail by a Federal Court.
Though she has been granted a 1 million naira bail.
Meanwhile, the lady who has been fingered for being the “number 2” reason for Mercy’s marriage crash as being identified as Opemitipo.

JJC reveals how he met and proposed to Funke Akindele, her ‘beef’ with Toyo Baby, when they’d have kids and more in new interview!

Last year, Nollywood Actress, and creator of the Jenifa Diary, Funke Akindele, married her hearthrob, Abdul Rasheed Bello popularly known as JJC Skillz in a private ceremony that held in the United Kingdom.

In this new interview with SUN Newspaper JJC opened up on how he met and toasted Funke, how his children accepted their step mom.. He also talked about the “silent beef” between his wife Funke and Toyo Baby, amongst other things. Read the Full interview below:
The scripture said ‘When you find a wife, you find a good thing’, can you relate to that?
Of course, he who findeth a wife, findeth a good thing and obtained favour from the Lord. Most times, as a single man, you carry almost all your burdens alone. You’d have to worry about what you eat, and my cooking Skillz it’s not really that fantastic. But when I found my wife, I knew I had found my better-half. Now, when I think about things, I share it all with my wife. We wake up from same bed in morning and head to our field, because we are both into entertainment. She’s the actress, script writer, i’m the director, editor. She’s very hard working, in fact I don’t know anyone like us in this industry; she works day and night. We wake up every single day, with the mind set of making ourselves happy.
Funke, like you we all know is a very busy woman, does she still have time to cook for you?
Why not? It is said that the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Definitely, she cooks amazingly, but I told her to stop, so she can get enough rest. Most times, she would insist, because she wants to take care of her man. But I always insist, as we now have chefs.
Was it her cooking Skillz that attracted you to her?
My wife is a fantastic cook, she’s an amazing woman, everything about her attracted me to her. It’s not only one thing that attracts a man to a woman, but definitely, the cooking Skillz is a plus and my wife has it all. I would want to eat her meals for the rest of my life.
What’s her favourite dish for you?
Oh! Thats Ewedu and pounded yam; that’s number one. That food always sweep me off my feet, and i’d ask her, if she added ‘something’ extra to it. She’s loving, caring, hard working, she’s all a man could ever ask for.
So, how does it feel being married to a popular actress?
To be honest, I lived the better part of my life in the UK, so I didn’t really know who Funke Akindele was. When I met her, I just met someone that wanted a director for her TV show; Jenifa’s Diary. That was in 2013. We have been going on for a long time, people just found out in 2016.
We were very low key, because we are two popular people in the entertainment industry, so we have to protect our privacy.
How did you manage to hide it from the public eyes for so long?
Just like our wedding and our privates lives, we just have to keep it away from the public eyes. We already have so much out there on social media and people end up, blowing it out of proportion.
‎How did you meet Funke Akindele?
She wanted someone to direct her TV series, then I was about to embark on recording the JJC album then. Her sister introduced us, because she knew I was into music video directing.
So, when I met her, I told me she did a movie sometime ago and would like to turn it into a TV series. We started working together and preparing for the shoot, then one thing led to another. Here we are today, the rest is history. We just clicked.
Would you say, it was love at first sight?
Well, I would say so, because first time I saw her, I was wowed. She also told me that, when she first saw me, she went ‘Wow’. We tried to keep the whole work as professional as possible but along the line, emotions ran high.
How did you propose to her? On your knees, romantic date or just casual question?
I’m definitely a romantic person, so I gave her a dose of it. It wasn’t in an open place, because only very few people knew as at then.
So, that very day, she came home to meet flowers, candles everywhere; quite a romantic set up. When she saw it, she had no choice than to say ‘Yes’.
Were you afraid, she would say No?
Well, we had a very wonderful, beautiful relationship, but to be honest, I had proposed to her earlier and she laughed at me. I think that was a week after we met. I was like ‘I have never met anyone like you, marry me’. And she just laughed at me. And then, I promised that, that she would be my wife. I play around a lot, but then, I meant it.
You are both celebrities, in the media eyes, how do you succeed in maintaining your private life?
Private life, work life, we take it all one day at a time. We don’t worry about outsiders and what they would think, we just do us. Every single day, we have our prayers and talk about how the day would go. It’s quite a unique and complimentary relationship and i’m enjoying every bit of it.
Who apologies first when you both have little marital issues?
My wife would say, that she apologies first, but I refuse because I know I apologize first. Most times, we apologize at the same time. No relationship or marriage is perfect, so such things are normal. I’ll get upset, she’ll get upset, we later apologize to each other and let it slide. In fact, we hardly do find ourselves in such situations.
However, the important thing is not to carry over any arguments or misunderstanding to the next day. We are now family, so we help each other grow.
We both have had our own fair share of horrible relationship experiences, so we appreciate each other a whole lot. We value our love and hold it tight. A lots of people in the world are looking at us with envy, while some are hoping and praying that one day, we would break up. We are going to disappoint them because we try to hard to keep ourselves in check, encourage ourselves and most importantly, pray for ourselves.
When would the kids start coming?
Soon! God’s time is the best. We are working on it.
How did your kids accept their new step mum?
Well, before we got married in London, we all had a good relationship here in Nigeria. The kids were always seeing this beautiful woman around daddy, and always make him happy. They might be away and in different continent, but they are part of our daily activities. She is also very close to them, they met her digital first. They didn’t know she is an actress then, because in the UK, they hardly watch Nigerian movies, but they love so much. They all love each other. It’s a perfect blend.
I remember my daughter telling me, ‘Dad make sure you marry her. She’s a keeper”. And I did, I followed my daughter’s advice.
One of my songs, Save The Last Dance’ was written for my wife, she really saved the last dance for me.
Last year, it was reported that you had a fracas with your cousin, Mr. Moe Musa, because of Funke Akindele, that Moe had to move out of your house, what really happened?
Those who instigated such reports are very stupid! People just say and publish whatever they want without proper investigations and still get away with it.
Mr. Moe Musa as at then moved to the next block after mine. I lived in block H, while he is in block G. I spoke with the agents that got him the apartment and he moved in. He used to be in a room in my 3 bedroom apartment, so when my relationship, got serious, he moved on.
That’s not even the main reason. Moe has been in Nigeria then for almost 6 months, so he felt it was time to get his own place.
To be honest, when you first relocate to Nigeria, you’ll find it very hard to stay alone because you don’t understand the system yet. The way things work in Nigeria are different from the way it work in other countries. Moe stayed with me for a while, so he could get used to the Nigerian system. How to get food, how Generator works and other confusing stuffs.
Days ago, Jenifa Diary actor, Toyosi reportedly left the productions after a misunderstanding with Funke and all fingers were pointing at you, what really happened?
I don’t know why Toyosi left and it has nothing to do with me. Just like any character in a TV series, she can go and return. The only permanent character in the series is Jenifa. Falz has gone and came back. In the script Toyosi is married and has gone to France with her husband to live for a while. So, anything can happen. When she comes back, you’d see her on screen, if not, then that’s what the script said.
But it was also reported that Funke un-followed her on social media…..true?
Well, I don’t know about that. I’m not 100 percent sure of that. I’ll have to check Instagram to find out about that.
‎Funke Akindele turned into a singer, just to surprise you on your birthday, how does that make you feel?
It was awesome. My wife and the SOP team wowed me. I noticed that whenever I come into the studio they all looked funny. They even sent me on a fools errand, just to shoot a video for me, under my nose. I really didn’t see it coming.
I woke up that day, to see all of them wearing a t-shirt for me, sang for me and a whole lot. It made me really happy. I thank God, I have my best friend as a wife, then the best team ever! I’m indeed so lucky.

Whistle-blower, blogger remanded for cyber bullying

Image result for fejiro oliver
The Nigeria Police Force has arraigned a self-acclaimed whistleblower, Dennis Ukpabi, and a blogger, Fejiro Oliver, for cyber stalking. It was learnt that Ukpabi, who is a former employee of Sterling Bank Plc, was arrested for publishing a book titled, ‘The Whistleblower’, in which he accused some employees of the bank – Adekanla Desalu, Eguru Nyenke, Janet Akpan and Kojusola Ajao – of fraud.
Ukpabi also alleged that after exposing the fraud in the bank, one of his colleagues involved in the fraud was promoted because she was dating an executive director at the bank.
Ukpabi and Oliver were arraigned before a Federal High Court in Lagos on Friday on five charges bordering on alleged acts of ‘cyber stalking’, which are said to be punishable under the provisions of Section 24 of the Cybercrimes (Prohibition and Prevention etc) Act, 2015.
The first charge read, “That you Dennis Ukpabi and Tega Oghenero between 1st – 13th February, 2017 in Lagos within the jurisdiction of Federal High Court, conspired together to commit felonies, namely, knowingly and intentionally sending intimidated, hatred, insulting and needless anxiety messages and thereby committing an offence punishable under section 27 (1) (b) of Cybercrime (prohibition, prevention etc Act 2015).”
Another charge read that the accused sent offensive messages to Desalu, Busola Awosile, Nyenke and Adeyemi Odubiyi, which are said to be ‘’punishable under section 24 (1) (b) of Cybercrime (prohibition, prevention etc Act 2015.’’
The defendants pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The prosecution counsel, who is also a Superintendent of Police, Mr. J. Oloruntoba, asked the court to remand the defendants in prison custody. Frantic efforts were made by lawyers representing the two defendants; Mrs. Kitan and Mr. Inibehe Effiong, to persuade the court to admit them to bail.
Effiong, who is a human rights lawyer, informed the court that the defendants were accosted by the police and arraigned surreptitiously without proper and adequate notice.
The trial judge, Justice Mohammed Idris, asked the defendants’ counsel to bring a formal application for bail and promised to hear it expeditiously.
The judge remanded them in Ikoyi Prisons.

I spent 12 years at home, gained admission six times but had no money – Negedu, UNILAG first class graduate

After a lasting financial problem, characterised by going to school bare-footed and starving sometimes, Negedu Sunday graduated with a first class from the Department of Biochemistry, University of Lagos, with 4.70 CGPA in the 2013/2014 academic session. In this interview with TUNDE AJAJA, he speaks about his days in school.

What was your growing up like?
As a child, life was tough. I grew up in Olodi-Apapa/Ajegunle area of Lagos. I’m the second out of seven children and my parents had deep love for education, even though they didn’t have much of it. My mum used to sell bean cake (akara) while my dad was a tailor. He had to take up another job as a housekeeper/store-keeper in a hotel. They worked so hard to care for us. Even though there were vices in the neighbourhood, like gambling, fighting and doing drugs, my parents were disciplinarians and they made sure we found reading attractive. And of course I won’t forget the deep financial hardship we went through; days I went to school bare-footed, which was quite common, because there was not enough money to spare for school sandals; days we bought bread on credit from a kind-hearted woman down the street, just to survive. I also remember when I used to fetch water for people, staying awake to help my mum peel some more melons to increase her chance of making profits the following day, and many other things. Because of all those activities during the day, I often read in the night, and I started winning awards from primary one. So, thank God for where we are today; His mercy and grace made it possible and thank God my parents taught us in the way of the Lord, even if we had to go to church in bathroom slippers. God is faithful.
What inspired you to choose Biochemistry?
Growing up, I had this dream to be a medical doctor and later to become a neurosurgeon. But 12 years after graduating from secondary school and after my sixth Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, choosing Biochemistry was the logical thing to do. It wasn’t that I didn’t pass the UTMEs, I did, but my admission suffered huge setbacks owing to lack of fund. At a point, I was somewhat persuaded that I needed to do a four-year course in order to graduate early (compared to the six years for medicine) so I could support my parents, siblings and others in need. A few of my teachers who knew my desire to study medicine were not so happy with that decision, they felt I would make an excellent doctor, but I had to do it and I enjoyed the course. I told myself that I had found something that transcends medicine because of its powerful relevance in basic science and application in addressing the problem of human diseases. I was deeply inspired by the knowledge of genes, DNA, RNA and their varied structural variants, proteins and the world of metabolism. Its application to everything, including nutrition, human physiology, drug development and design and human medicine strengthened my passion for the course.
Did you find the course a bit challenging like some people see it?
Frankly, I never believed anything is difficult. I think it’s a very demanding course but intrinsically this is not peculiar to biochemistry. The course is unique and very deep. Of course, it was a lot of work to have a first class, but I wanted it badly; therefore, I consciously deployed everything necessary to achieve it. A day to my resumption in school, I prayed to God to help me to be excellent in character and academic performance. But beyond the prayer, I had the culture of targeting an ‘A’ in every course per semester and there was no time I aimed for a GPA less than 5.00. I never saw it as impossible, so I simply gave my best; drew a study plan and read every day in the semester. I gave up the pleasure of sleep and would read through the night. Nothing could distract me. So, graduating with a first class was not easy, but for me, there was no option. I have always led my class from primary school and I used to read so much that my father had to remark that it was too much for a boy of my age. I believe that excellence is a conscious thing.
When did you start having first class?
It was from my first semester.
Since you were desperate for it, how would you have felt if you didn’t eventually make a first class?
I often thought of it too. From experience, I would have felt unfulfilled for a brief moment. Yes, brief moment, because I don’t allow anything to bother my inner peace. The fact that I worked so hard for it and that I had acquired knowledge through painstaking study would be comforting. There were a few times I did not get the ‘A’ I so desired and worked hard for, but I stayed focused in spite of that. Over time, I have learned a secret of genuine success: finding peace, not giving any inch to disappointment and staying confident. That was my attitude to life’s dark moments. Ultimately, I always wanted to inspire others through my story. Basically, all the challenges I had revolved round financial challenges. In my first year, I could not secure hostel accommodation, so I was coming to school from home (after Ajegunle). My mother would give me N500, which was virtually her profit from the sale of fried yam and ‘akara’ daily. My shoes were always worn out due to long trekking and I had polythene bag as school bag that I used to carry my heavy books around the school. My mum really sacrificed a lot. After my first semester, I tried joining the university’s work and study scheme, but I was advised not to, so it wouldn’t affect my performance. But God surrounded me with true friends and crowned my efforts.
What was your most memorable moment in school?
It was when I received an award as the best biochemistry student in my first year. A professor of biochemistry and head of the department presented the award to me. Another memorable moment was when I invited my parents to grace the occasion of the MTN Science Foundation award at Muson Centre in Lagos. I also must mention that I won’t forget the semester I got 5.00 GPA. I had no embarrassing moment. I cannot think of any, maybe because I looked for the good in everything that happened to me and cast all my disappointments on God. I never felt embarrassed by anyone or anything.
Could you tell us more about the scholarship and the impact it had on you?
When I gained admission, my former vice principal in my secondary school sent me a link for the scholarship. On following the link, I saw that I had to wait till the following year when I would have a CGPA. In my second year, a friend told me about the scholarship and gave me the link. I filled the form online and through a very inspiring and true story about myself, I described how important the scholarship was to my study. I presented my very best. I prayed and trusted God to have His way. I followed up with constant checks on my email. I was overjoyed when I got a mail from the MTNSSF team notifying me of my selection for the scholarship test. I took the test and I felt strongly that I did well but remained humble in my heart, looking to God for mercy. The message of my success in the test and qualification for the award left me in wonder and excitement. I told my friends, parents and siblings. They were so proud and they rejoiced with me. I was so happy and thankful to God. The scholarship did quite a lot and I felt honoured to be a beneficiary of that prestigious award. With the scholarship, I was able to get study materials including a personal computer and support my parents and siblings and a few friends. It became the major source of financial sponsorship for my study and support at home. It also helped with the funding of my final year B.Sc. project. I enjoyed it for three years; from second year to fourth year. The scholarship was an invaluable support to realising my goal and made life beautiful in those trying moments.
Did you enjoy any other scholarship apart from that?
University of Lagos supports its scholars (first-class students) with an endowment fund of N50,000 each academic year as long as the scholar maintains the first class. I benefited from this all through, and I’m so grateful for that.
Since it was either first class or nothing else, how long did you read to maintain your grade?
I had a study plan, I prioritised my courses and studied very well. Beyond these, I prayed about everything, took responsibility for myself and actions, studied hard, remained focused and I learnt from others. I won a number of awards in school, including the HOD of Science Prize and the prestigious Professor Akinrimisi Prize of Excellence in Biochemistry. I believe some students fail due to lack of commitment, indiscipline, not identifying what works for them, seeking help late or not seeking help at all and lack of confidence. These issues can be tackled by any willing mind.
Do you believe in having mentors?
I believe in mentoring. There were a few persons I admire from a distance. Some of them I came close to and I was encouraged by their confidence and sincere criticism.
How did you use your leisure?
I spent my limited free time meditating, listening to godly songs, reading books or having discussions with friends. I could take some time to sleep or take a walk.
Did you have a relationship?
I have a different approach to certain things. I was not in any relationship, not because I feared distraction, but I just didn’t think of being in one. There is time for everything under the sun as long as our creator allows it.
What are your aspirations in the short and long run?
I just completed my M.Sc. in Biochemistry Tuesday last week, and in the short run, I would make effort for a Ph.D scholarship position in one of the best universities in the world. In the long run, I aspire to work in a world-class academic and research institution of my dream and to join in the fight against cancer through scientific enquiry or translational research. My hope is to be able to support the indigent and vulnerable in our society. I want to contribute to the good of people.
We learnt you are now a graduate assistant at UNILAG, would you like to remain in teaching or you have other interests?
I love to teach and advise students, even though my passion is to be a molecular/biomedical researcher. I want to do more than just teach. My other interests are in volunteering and writing.
Or do you still have interest in Medicine, since that was your initial target?
A few of my colleagues who were aware of my original passion for medicine often ask me this question. I think I’m fulfilled with biochemistry.
How best can students have excellence in their academics?
They should desire academic excellence. That is very important. They should study hard, be diligent and remain resolute about their decision for excellence. Also of importance is for them to set high goals and give no room for mediocrity. Positivity and possibility attitude is also important. They should have faith in God. For me, I demonstrated a unique attitude of self-confidence and independence in my academic work from primary one and what I stood for was evident to all just as my football skills. That is also important.
For those 12 years that you were ay home, what were you doing?
Immediately after my WASSCE, the principal of the school told me the plan of the school to retain me as an auxiliary teacher for the sciences and maths. Even though I was being paid N600, I was happy that I was adding value to the students, and I had a sense of indebtedness to the school. Even when the funding (by the PTA) stopped, I continued, voluntarily and the school appreciated it. After that, I went to a private school, and I was happy sharing good moments with the pupils. My teachers and the school owner were proud of me and they were kind to me.

Actress Rita Dominic reveals why she is ye to be married

Nollywood actress, Rita Dominic has revealed why she is yet unmarried.
Rita, a veteran Nigerian actress was speaking in an interview with a lifestyle and fashion magazine, Schick, where she said that she could have been married a long time ago, but things didn’t work out.

The multiple award-winning actress, however, is hopeful that God will present the right man to her at the right time.
She said, “I believe that God is in charge of my life and will present the right man to me at the right time.”
When asked whether social pressure don’t get to her, Rita replied, “I am a human being and I would be lying to say that it doesn’t sometimes.
“More so because it’s something I sincerely want to do but the feeling passes when I remember that society will not live with the person.
“I will live with the man, so it is very important that I do it because I want to, not because society wants it for me.”
On the myth that sex, for women, gets better with age, Rita opined that sex at 40 is what you make of it.
“If you ordinarily don’t enjoy it, age won’t make a difference.
“I find that when a woman embraces her sexuality, many Nigerians equate it to being Ashewo, as if we should act like sex is not pleasurable.”
Rita described dating, as a nightmare, “especially in these days of social media where with one click you are all over the internet.”
Though she admitted that “I do date when someone special comes around.
“I love being totally drawn to someone and doing all those loving things couples do, but I am also wary of liars and bullies.‎”

Saturday daily devotional by Pastor E. A. Adeboye ( Open Heavens 29 April 2017) – The Privileges of God’s Children II

Topic: The Privileges of God’s Children II [Saturday 29, April 2017]

Memorise: For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.Romans 8:14

Read: Romans 8:14-17(KJV)

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

Bible in One Year: Number 26-27, Jeremiah 22:14-23:8


There is a song that was popular among children of God some decades ago which reveals not only privilege meant only for the children of God but also their appreciation of that privilege. It goes thus: “Something more than gold; The spirit of God in the heart of man; something more than gold.” According to our memory verse, as many as are led by the spirit of God, are the children of God. In other words, only those who are children of God have the privilege of being directed and guided by the Holy Spirit. Conversely, only those who are guided by the Spirit of God are genuine children of God. If you take a look at the account of how God formed man from the dust of the earth, you will observe that in spite of the fact that every part was properly fixed and fitted, man could not fulfil the purpose of his creation until God put His Spirit in him. Genesis 2:7 says,

“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”

After man fell, the Spirit of the Lord departed from him, and he became a shadow of his glorious past. Man became afraid of himself. Adam and Eve lost trust in each another, so much so that they were ashamed of seeing each other’s nakedness. Fear ruled the heart of man because the Spirit of the Lord had departed from him. Man lost his sense of purpose and direction. God appeared in the cool of the day and man took cover with his wife, who he now viewed as the source of his troubles (Genesis 3:12). The certainty of what tomorrow holds eluded humanity, and man groped in darkness, being tormented by different taskmasters until God decided to have mercy on us through the grace of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. The moment we accept His grace of adoption, we begin to enjoy the privilege revealed in Romans 8:15-16:

15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:”

I believe you now understand the reason why the old-time believers sang with great excitement that the Spirit of God in the heart of a man is something more than gold. The Spirit gives us the assurance that we are children of God. This consciousness gives us the impetus to live like Him in this world, and also grants us boldness based on the assurance that with God, our Father, on our side, no evil can come near us. So, if you are yet to become a child of God, don’t delay further; give your life to Christ today, and you will be adopted into the household of God.

Action Point: Thank God for His precious gift of the Holy Spirit and for all that His Spirit does in your life.

Open Heavens Daily Devotional guide was written by Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, one of the largest evangelical church in the world and also the President of Christ the Redeemer's Ministries.

Mercy Aigbe: Her refusal to make food for hubby led to the fight (Details)

For a while now all has not been well in the marriage of Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe.

Her 7-year marriage to Lagos based hotelier, Lanre Gentry seems to have crashed. Sources revealed that Mercy has been enduring domestic violence for a long time in her marriage but it's gotten worse lately.

Another source even revealed that Mercy's hubby has a fair skinned mistress named Opemititi who has allegedly been fingered as the one responsible for her hubby's change of attitude. 
Well, now is the full gist....
Few days ago, Mercy's husband on his way to his office gave her money to cook and bring to his hotel in Oregun as he was going to be having friends visiting him but hours after he got to the hotel, his wife stopped picking his calls and he made inquires and learnt that his wife had gone for a party without even preparing lunch or dinner for their son who had to make do with pizza for the day.

Later that night, Larry on learning that his wife was in her designer’s house{luminee} went there and asked her to come home, she refused saying she was tired of the marriage.
This infuriated Larry who beat Mercy to stupor and drama started with both calling each other day names and Mercy vowing never to step into his cursed house again. 
Mercy cried and was helpless, as she couldn't fight him. After Larry left, Mercy was taken to a nearby hospital and immediately called an Estate Agent the following morning. Within 48 hours, she moved to Magodo.

Those in the know say they both have just been tolerating themselves for 4 years now as Mercy often laments to people she has had to be father and mother as her husband’s financial status had dwindled . 
However, Larry Associates cried that mercy has not been a faithful wife and Larry has always been on the Edge checking her calls and messages and they are not surprised that this is happening.
It would be recalled that years back, Mercy's husband almost beat her because she disappeared at a . nightclub where an event was held to honour her and her phone was suddenly off. They later made a video denying it.

Mercy Aigbe Gentry's husband never trusted her from the beginning! (New exclusive details)

Earlier today, news broke out that actress Mercy Aigbe's marriage had crashed due to domestic abuse from her husband, Asiwaju Lanre Gentry.

Mercy had made an Instagram post advising women to “say no to domestic violence”, and her husband subtly replied with a post of his own, saying, “say no to promiscuous n irresponsible women”.

We reached out  and a close source who chose to remain anonymous has however revealed some new details to Kemi Filani Blog. According to the source, Mercy Aigbe's husband always had trust issues with her.

Read the exclusive revelation to Kemi Filani Blog.

"...I am not in the position to say but it has been a long time coming, Asiwaju doesn't trust Mercy cos her movement is always suspicious. They always fight over allegations but it has never been this bad and sometimes he punishes her by not letting her leave the house, that is why she couldn't attend this year's AMVCA, they had a fight around that period. Twice now she has had miscarriages from being beaten by him.....this one just got really really bad but that doesn't mean they have parted ways."

When asked why Mr Gentry doesn't trust his wife, the source said:

"He gets calls from  peeps, friends who give him updates on her movements. She can tell him she is at so so place and at the end of the day, he will find out that she is somewhere goes on and on like that....."
When asked if actress Opemititi aka 'Queen Stunner' had a role to play in the crash, the close source said thus:

"I know she is very close to Asiwaju...I don't have much details on that but things have grown cold between her and Mercy, they were once very close, she frequently visited Mercy's boutique at Ogba and her home and when Mercy travels out, she is available to monitor things but things are not same between them anymore. So maybe, may be not I can't say if she is having an affair with Asiwaju but she is closer to him than to mercy now, they avoid each other sort of" 

A few years back, Stella Dimokokorkus reported how Mercy Aigbe's husband embarrassed her at an event due to this same trust issues, but both parties vehemently denied the report then.

Meanwhile, Mercy and her hubby are not separated yet. Their social media status, display photos and display names still show that they are married.

This 72-year-old Grandma just graduated from the University (Photos)

Darlene Mullins has finally graduated from the university
A 72-year-old woman, Darlene Mullins has become an instant sensation after graduating from the university.
On May 6, the grandmother of four will receive her degree from Tennessee State University after 55 years.
According to reports, the former Miss New Jersey and Miss Glamour Runner up began the journey to earn a degree in 1962 from Tennessee State University, but just as it started, it was cut short. 
She never gave up an will smile home some with another achievement to her name. She met fellow student John Mullins, a senior from St. Louis, Missouri, who she described as dashing, handsome and “everything to behold,” and they fell in love.
“Love got in the way,” said Mullins, who celebrates 54 years of marriage in August.
After courting for a while, they got married a short time later. She said John completed his degree program in 1964 and she took on the role of caring for their home and raising a family.
Darlene began a long and successful career in retail and cosmetology after family care got less. John and Darlene have been supportive of each other over the years and have lived in 6 states over the course of their marriage.
Darlene said she never forgot about her academic aspiration. “Something kept nagging at me. I always told my children to make sure they finish what they started and I kind of felt it was time to live up to my own advice,” she said.
“John did not hesitate for one bit; he said ‘let’s go,’” she said. The couple moved back to Nashville to allow Darlene to return to TSU and pursue a degree in interdisciplinary studies in 2013.
“My goal was to come back and finish at Tennessee State. I didn’t know at the time how long it was going to take, I just knew I had to do it,” she said. At times, she took as many as 20 credit hours a semester, and maintained top grades.
With the 25 credits she had accumulated before dropping out in 1963, Darlene is completing her college work in four years. A member of three honor societies, she is graduating summa cum laude. On May 6, Darlene will be among more than 800 graduates.

Fulani herdsmen invade Wole Soyinka's home

Wole Soyinka
Nigeria's Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka on Friday revealed that herdsmen have again invaded his home in Ogun State.
Herdsmen had last year attacked Soyinka’s home while he was away abroad. He had said then that he returned from a trip outside the country only to “find that my home ground had been invaded, and a brand-new “Appian way” sliced through my sanctuary. That ‘motorable’ path was made by the hoofed invaders. Both the improvised entry and exit are now blocked.”
PM News reports that while speaking with newsmen on Friday at the Freedom Park, Lagos Island, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria, Soyinka said this time the herdsmen came through another path to his doorstep.
Soyinka said with this recent invasion of his home by herdsmen, it meant that “we are living in dangerous time,” saying that the invasion convinced him that the attack was a deliberate act of provocation.
According to him, the attack was life-threatening and alarming as his home and that of his neighbours were invaded by the herdsmen, adding that he had reported the matter to the police in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
The Nobel laureate said it was sad that the government was virtually doing nothing about incessant herdsmen attack across the nation as they left behind trails of blood, pains and anguish.
Soyinka said the herdsmen were everywhere now and that they normally come to territories not as peaceful neighbours, but as conquerors.
He stated that it was dangerous when herdsmen begin to come to people’s doorstep, especially his home, as such invaders could become potential suicide bombers, decrying that the leadership of this nation must take drastic steps to nip in the bud incessant attacks from herdsmen.
Soyinka said the time had come to wake up the leadership of the nation to take precise action to remedy the dangerous menace of herdsmen with their conqueror’s mentality, lamenting that the behaviour of the police and other security agencies was that the citizens should look after themselves in this dangerous times.
“We need to wake up the leadership, let them know the seriousness of the issue on ground; these sorts of conquerors,  these herdsmen are worse than Boko Haram,” he said, adding that some kind of action was required to make the government to take drastic action, saying that such action could be abstinence from anything beef to call the leadership to its responsibilities to take holistic action about the issue on ground.
Soyinka also frowned at the plan by the government to create a grazing corridor for herdsmen in the country, saying that would compound the problem on ground.
“Creating corridor for cattle grazing will compound the problem, I do not think that is the solution,” he said, adding that creating ranches for the herdsmen could be part of the solution,” he said.
Earlier, Soyinka adapted the speech he delivered a year ago at the National Conference on Culture and Tourism, saying that “they must be taught however that there is a culture of settlement, and learn to seek accommodation with settled hosts wherever encountered.
“The leadership of any society cannot stand idly and offer solutions that implicitly deem the massacres of innocents mere incidents on the way to that learning school. For every crime, there is a punishment, for every violation, there must be restitution. The nomads of the world cannot place themselves above the law of settled humanity.”

A Prophetess Shares Shocking Revelation About Apostle Suleman, Wife & Otobo

A prophetess identified as Princess has shared some revelations she received for men of God, especially Apostle Suleman, the general overseer of Omega Fire Ministries in a live video on Youtube.

The lady who says she received some revelations about Apostle Suleman over the past one month, also stated that the cleric has committed several atrocities.

She further revealed that God told her that "Apostle Suleman is not a true servant of God and he is not working for him"

According to her, "On the 28th of March, 2017, I princess saw myself in a revelation when I was about to put on a gas cooker. And suddenly I saw a woman, then she introduced herself as Suleman's wife.

"She told me Suleman wants to pray for me and that I should come with an anointing oil. My response was OK"

"When I went for the prayers, I saw Suleman in a stadium, with creatures surrounding him, these are demons in human form holding weapons".

"I looked at my left and saw a group of Satanic agents in the revelation. I looked at my back and saw thousands of them already prepared for war to fight me"

"Then I started praying. A hand from heaven came down and lifted me up"

"When I looked down, all the demons were fighting and killed themselves in the process"

"Later I heard a voice from heaven saying the Pastor and all of them have been killed"

"On the 30 of March, the Lord revealed Suleman Johnson’s atrocities to me. He showed me what his members and the world do not know about Suleman Johnson.

“God also showed me that Stephanie Otobo's mother has been killed spiritually. She was killed the day she entered Suleman Johnson’s church.

"I saw Suleman's hands and God told me that he and his wife are no longer living together spiritually, in as much as they are living together physically, their marriage vow has been broken"

“Suleman has killed so many people in order to obtain more power and influence in the society. God said Suleman Johnson is not a true servant of God, and he is not working for him. That he does not know him and he has a master called Satan.

"God told me that Apostle Suleman’s gifts to the people and members of his church have a spiritual effect on them. He told that the gifts are used in an exchange of the people’s destiny. He said people receiving gifts from Suleman Johnson are spiritually dead. They are initiated into a satanic occult kingdom. All his members are spiritually dead. All his members are all living corpse. They are now demons".

“Suleman Johnson helps the families of those he killed for ritual purposes and they will never suspect him".

The prophetess added that if Apostle Suleman does not repent of his sins, God will disgrace him in a way that he will not see it coming

Nigerian man cries out after his wife of 38 years had affair with his typist

A 65-year-old man on Friday told an Ibadan Customary Court, sitting in Agodi, how his wife of 38 years committed adultery with his typist while he was away on official assignment.

The husband, Mr Alaba Aigbe, had asked the court to dissolve his marriage with Veronica over alleged adultery and witchcraft.

In his testimony, the complainant said that while he was on official assignment in Jigawa in 2006, he asked his typist to be collecting his salaries and give to his wife.He said

“Since the assignment will take a year to complete, I asked my typist to receive my salaries on my behalf and forward it to my wife because I did not want her and the children to suffer when I was away.
“My typist used the opportunity to woo my wife and they started the illicit affairs until 2007 when I returned home.
“I suspected the immorality when things turned upside down for my family and I sought for spiritual solution.
“It was in the course of finding solution to the problem that I got to know about the relationship between her and the typist.
“She confessed to me but said the typist only fingered her private part on four different occasions when I was away.
“I told her that the only condition to forgive her was to follow me to my village to make some rituals and appeal to my family gods because adultery is abomination in my village.
“She refused to follow me, saying that she is a Deaconess and that she had taken the typist to her pastor for confession of sin and forgiveness,” the complainant narrated.

In her defense, Veronica, who did not deny the allegation, said her husband was the cause of the incident, saying that she had warned her husband not to allow the typist come to their house.

Veronica, however, pleaded the court not to dissolve the marriage which was blessed with seven children, saying she had suffered enough about the issue.

In his judgment, Chief Mukaila Balogun, the president of the court, dissolved the marriage and ordered the complainant to pay N17,000 to the defendant for her to pack her load.

Balogun further directed that the defendant should take custody of the seventh child while the husband should pay her N5000 monthly allowance or the upkeep of the child.

KFB Movie Review: Bisola Aiyeola deserves an award for her brilliant acting in "Ovy's voice"


For the Newbies, the KFB movie review is an every Friday column that gives you a cinema guide on which movies to watch and not watch! You can check out our other reviews (HERE).

Today's movie for review is Iroko productions' Ovy's Voice' which features Bisola Aiyeola, Mofe Duncan, Uche Obodo, Shaffy Bello.

I have to admit that truly the best things in life don't sometimes come in the best package and this movie proved that.

I wasn't going to watch it cos i felt it wasn't up to standard, it wasn't well advertised and it didn't feature the A-list cast of Nollywood...thank God for my sis, she insisted on having us see it on Iroko TV and oh boy, it turned out to be an awesome movie!


A mute make up artist whose sole means of communication is through the written word becomes close to the son of one of her best clients, however there is an obstacle stopping her from fully allowing him into her world.
Director: Dimeji Ajibola
Producer: Biodun Stephen

You see, Ovy's Voice is a simple yet very sweet watch that captivates you in a 'bed of roses' kind of way and then proceeds to wreak havoc on your emotions when you least expect it. 

The writer manages to make a romance that is sweet and endearing, takes you along the journey, and is still not dragged out or too rushed. There are points where you kind of know where the storyline is and the writer and director give you space to embrace it, and even though you knew it was going to happen it still feels new.

Second standout feature is performance – most remarkably Bisola Aiyeola as Ovy.

 For the most part of the movie she is just writing on boards and shrugging her shoulders. However, in the one scene at the hour mark where things change between her and Anaan,  she manages to depict a world of emotions without ever saying a word.

Then there’s Shaffy Bello as Mama G who manages to embody the mother-in-law you wish you had, and Uche Obodo who apparently has learned how to tone it down much to all of our gratitude. Then there’s Mofe Duncan for the girls dem. Handome guy!

Then there’s the story itself. Just when you think you have it pegged for a certain type of film and you know where it’s going it flips the switch and becomes more. It’s originality is not from being so “brand new” of a storyline but from flipping the storyline at a time when the audience least expected it and pulling it off brilliantly.

And then there’s the music, anyone else catch that male rendition of Di’Ja’s “Awww” in the middle there? From the jump the movie hits you with the music and it’s above par.

Ovy’s Voice has a great weapon, and it is not because it keeps us eager by having a mute central figure, it is because there is a lot to this central figure. The story does not end up as a love story, it is an abuse story.

Because of Ovy’s behavior from the first scene, we assume that she has been mute from birth but we soon realize, that her condition was the aftermath of the constant sexual abuse she received from her from her father. From the age of 12, her father starts abusing her sexually and her mother feels shadowed by societal analysis and so she keeps quiet about it. She does not protect her daughter; neither does she confront the man.

The acting is great! Shaffy Bello is not the usual swift talking high-class woman in “Ovy’s Voice”. She takes on a completely different role, as a full Yoruba persona with an interesting accent to back it up.

Her time on screen is limited but she does a memorable job. Bisola Aiyeola also does a job worth commending, as the mute Ovy she is swift and her action throughout the film is the reason we stay hooked.

Ovy’s voice is not a fast-paced film, it slowly makes its point and even though it takes too long to do this, there is a lesson to learn from the production, at least if not for anything, for the exposure of one of the many effects of child abuse.

Sad! This woman died immediately she got to Uyo from Lagos

A woman simply identified as Felicia died immediately she got to Uyo From Lagos.
Apparently, it was revealed that her husband took her to Lagos park alive to board a vehicle going to Uyo.. and then made arrangements with a pastor to pick her up for prayers… But on getting to Uyo park she gave up the ghost.. and the pastor she was meant to meet with ran away.

Felicia was very sick..
Read the story as shared by AB Isong:
Somehow i wanted to overlook this story, but it boils down to marrying a wrong man hence this post.
Earlier today (thursday precisely), I went to Itam Park long distance bus terminus where i was expecting a parcel from Lagos.
On arrival I saw an unusual crowd and I decided to get close. Only to find this woman dead and laid beside the young shall grow bus which transported her to Uyo.
I was privileged to ask a co-passenger who boarded same vehicle with her from Lagos to Uyo.
She said the woman’s husband brought her to the park alive to board the vehicle. And that He knew the woman wasn’t very strong while embarking on the long journey. And had made arrangement with a pastor here in Uyo to pick her and commence prayers.
The woman arrived Uyo alive, stepped out of the vehicle, asked for her luggage to be given to her which the driver obliged. Seeing she was weak, they offered her a chair to sit while waiting for pick-up.. the next thing she fell off the chair and that was the end of her life here on earth.
Minutes later, The Pastor came but was told from a distance that the lady he just spoke with on phone is dead. The man took off and disappeared.
Everyone deserted her but the good Samaritan in me came alive and I decided not to leave her there just like others did. I had to put a call across to the Nigerian Police and they responded swiftly. they came to the scene but my joy was complete when a woman came around and identified the lady as Felicia.. she wept and said Edoh Eke Wod meaning (they married her to kill her)… she has been taken to the mortuary by the Nigerian Police.
But my trouble is, Why will a man allow his wife travel such a long distance alone knowing too well she was sick?
Did he ever love that woman?
Did he know the woman won’t survive and decided to send her back to her state for death?
Why didn’t he take her to the hospital for treatment?
Oh Lord! help us… My wife is still weeping.
I’m happy i did my best.
Woman I don’t know you, But may God bless your soul.
Rest In Peace.
Don’t just write R.I.P, the reason i wrote this is for us to learn from it.
Never stay with a man who has no regards for you. if you die he will marry another. Marriage is not by force. You can still make heaven without marriage ooh! Marriage is not a yardstick to measure success.
I speak in anger! if staying single will keep you alive, please stay single and live than to marry and die.

Dutch couple visits Ekiti with Nigerian boys they adopted 12 years ago

A couple from the Netherlands, Donald and Gertruda Boots, who adopted two kids from Ekiti State about 12 years ago, yesterday brought them back home to familiarise with their biological family and roots.

The two brothers Joshua Oluwasola, 17, and Victor Ayoola, 14, were members of a family of eight, who were adopted by the couple in 2005 during the first tenure of Governor Ayodele Fayose.
They were all hosted by the state governor’s wife, Mrs Feyisetan Fayose, who at the reconciliation at her office in Ado-Ekiti, expressed her joy saying:
“I am happy to see the two children in good health and in high spirit. My interest in their
welfare informed my decision to visit them in Amsterdam in 2006, during my husband’s first term in office.”
Mrs Fayose regretted her husband’s inability to personally receive the couple and the two boys due to an official engagement outside the state. She, however, thanked the couple for taking good care of the boys like their biological children.
Speaking earlier, Donald said they decided to bring the boys back home to familiarise themselves with members of their immediate families. He said their education will not be complete if they were unable to trace their roots.
The eldest boy, Joshua, expressed joy, thanking the state government and everyone that took part in the adoption process, saying their fortune has improved tremendously.

Sex Scandal: Childhood friend exposes Stephanie Otobo's 'Dirty Secrets' (photos)

In this exclusive telephone chat with journalists, Miss Yvonne Ogiamien, reveals the character behind Miss Stephanie Otobo, the Canada based lady who has been blackmailing clergyman and president of Omega Fire Ministries worldwide, Apostle Johnson Suleman with claims of romance.

Yvonne reveals some of the intimate secrets of Otobo, her life in Sapele before she relocated to Canada. Meanwhile, in a new video that has gone viral on the social media, four ladies claiming to be close friends of Stephanie Otobo, claimed that Otobo’s allegations are all lies and that she was known for her fake and indecent lifestyle…Excerpts

How long have you known Stephanie?
We were childhood friends but I travelled to Canada after I got married about 10 years ago but she came in here few years back.

How close are you two?

We were close enough that sometimes she stays over with my family here in Toronto.

You were? Are you no longer friends?

Certainly not! Not after all this mess.

Mess? Ok, we will get back to that. But do you know a little or few things about her private life?

Sure! We shared information up till when she was to travel to Nigeria in January, though I had my reservations about her lifestyle.

Did she at any time mention her relationship with Apostle Johnson Suleman?
Yeaaa! That was about 2015. She told me and a few other friends how she got the number of the preacher from one of the church members here in Toronto. How she called the man for prayers and also pleaded for financial help. She told us how generous the man was and how the man assisted her without ever meeting her.

Was that all, she told you?
That was all. She told me each time the man of God sent some money to her about two or three occasions with a stern warning that she should quit her way of life.

What do you have to say about the allegations by Stephanie that she was in a relationship with Apostle Johnson Suleiman?
Of course not! That ain’t possible! We were always watching the man and his preaching’s on YouTube uptill early this year. Can a girl be in a relationship with someone she hasn’t met? Maybe, she was obsessed with the man of God. I have known Stephanie since her days in Sapele. What I know for certain is that she is not new to controversies. At some point, I felt she was possessed because she was good at scamming and twisting stories with so much finesse. Stephanie would do anything for money.

Are you saying the allegations might be false?

If it were someone else, I would have said there can’t be smoke without fire. But in Stephanie’s world, there can be smoke without fire. This is why I can say on good authority that it is a fat lie because of her antecedent. I know her so so well. For example, Stephanie started courting controversies from as early as the age of 15. She came in here as a student, through a phony admission syndicate in America from where she migrated to Canada. That is Stephanie for you. She would go to any length to make ends meet, including blackmail and extortion.

Are you by chance inferring that the allegations on Apostle Johnson Suleman are false?
As much as I know, If Stephanie was ever in a relationship, I and our other friends would know. She will flaunt it. Not this type she now claimed she made good money from. £8,000, €10,000 etc? Stephanie made all that money and she is still squatting in Canada? How is that possible? We were all bemused to hear and read in the press that she lost her house and cars owing to Apostle Suleman’s failed promise to marry her. This is absolute falsehood and wickedness as Stephanie never had a house. The only time she had an apartment for a few months was when she lied to a lawyer last year that she was pregnant and the man hired a condo for her in Toronto. But when he found out that she was not pregnant, he ejected her. Is that the same house Apostle made her lose?

Can you describe Stephanie Otobo?
Stephanie is a smart girl. And a coarse one as such. She knows how to play her cards. And it is unfortunate that she took the game to a dangerous level by involving Apostle Johnson Suleman. I want to suspect she was looking for something from the man of God and it didn’t work out. Maybe she was obsessed about the man of God, who knows? If not, how would a woman be talking about having an amorous relationship with someone she hasn’t met? Only last year, Stephanie was sleeping with a man called Ola who was said to be genuinely in love with her until she messed him up. She allegedly took his money, promised to marry him but dumped him after breaking the relationship. In return, I gathered that the said Mr. Ola made a video of Stephanie, including clips of her stealing his money. The video was handed to the pastor of their church during testimony time prompting her to flee and stop attending the church. Before leaving town, she temporarily teamed with another lover and together they reportedly engaged in several scams, including Internet fraud. But the bubble burst when her partner was caught and jailed for fraud. Having acquired a negative reputation in Toronto, Stephanie moved to Vancouver where she topped her game by joining so many dating sites. It was also in that city she became a stripper.

But why do you think she is doing all these?
