The picture has however caused a lot of debate online with many accusing Sandra ( the songster’s 1st baby mama) of being excessively possessive in her attempt to prove that Flavour is her man. You would also recall that barely weeks ago, Flavour’s second child by MBGN queen, Anna Banner celebrated her birthday but without all the fan fare and photo shoot sessions.
A couple of months ago, reports emerged that the singer traditionally married Sandra and the former beauty queen has been making subtle yet concerted effort to pass the message. For one, she changed her name to “Ugegbe1” which is a pet name the singer constantly uses to describe his “heart’s interest”.
We also hear although unconfirmed that Sandra is expecting her second child with the singer. Remember we said unconfirmed!
Amidst the piling sexual harassment accusation against American movie producer, Harvey Weinstein, Kenyan Nollywood star, Lupita Nyong’O has revealed in a trending op-ed on New York Times how the celebrated movie maker assaulted her.
In the detailed piece, Lupita Nyong’O gave her shocking experience especially how she felt “unsafe” and how his behavior was inappropriate. She shared:
“Harvey led me into a bedroom — his bedroom — and announced that he wanted to give me a massage,” Nyong’o wrote. “I thought he was joking at first. He was not. For the first time since I met him, I felt unsafe. I panicked a little and thought quickly to offer to give him one instead: It would allow me to be in control physically, to know exactly where his hands were at all times.”
Weinsten then told the actress that he wanted to remove his pants, which Nyong’o responded would be inappropriate. “I told him not to do that and informed him that it would make me extremely uncomfortable,” she wrote. ”He got up anyway to do so and I headed for the door, saying that I was not at all comfortable with that.”
“I did not know that things could change,” Nyong’o added. “I did not know that anybody wanted things to change. So my survival plan was to avoid Harvey and men like him at all costs, and I did not know that I had allies in this.”
In her final notes, Lupita Nyong’O shared: “I hope we are in a pivotal moment where a sisterhood — and brotherhood of allies — is being formed in our industry. I hope we can form a community where a woman can speak up about abuse and not suffer another abuse by not being believed and instead being ridiculed. That’s why we don’t speak up — for fear of suffering twice, and for fear of being labeled and characterized by our moment of powerlessness.”
Nigerian rap king, MI and his record label, Chocolate City have filed a lawsuit against American/Nigerian rap legend, Nas for allegedly breaching a contract agreement.
According to details of the lawsuit filed in New York State Supreme Court, Chocolate City is accusing the Queenbridge star of not fulfilling his end of a music deal after being contracted in 2013 and paid a total of $50,000 to deliver a verse in a song by MI.
Details reveal that Nas was supposed to deliver his lines and mention “M.I, Chocolate City, Nigeria, Queens, New York—NAS’s hometown—, Mandela, Trayvon Martin, and the struggles of Africans and African Americans” but he (Nas) delivered the verse without the above listed.
The record label and MI, however asked that Nas re-record the verse and till date, the American rapper and his label have not responded or produced another version hence the lawsuit.
If this isn’t one of her numerous stunts, we truly wish Tonto Dikeh, all the best! Barely a year ago, the actress made a public funfair of her marital problems, granting interviews and sharing unsolicited details of her marriage to popular philanthropist, Olakunle Churchill, calling him out for domestic violence, gross irresponsibility and his inability to pay the bills. We had hoped for there to be some other fascinating gist-worthy news about the star Nollywood actress and we finally got it!
Some months ago, reports emerged linking the recently divorced actress to controversial social media celebrity/unofficial Gucci ambassador, Hushpuppi and it appears that Tonto Dikeh wants us to know desperately that there might be truth to the reports.
Early this afternoon, she took to her Instagram page to share a rear-view photo of Huspuppi with a very suspicious caption and some kiss emojis that we couldn’t help but notice; “Zaddy God gat you real big!!!You are healed in Jesus name..The healing hands of God rest Upon you,I speak divine health and healing into your body and bones..I decree that every ill yolk be broken in Jesus name..I love you Ray,Stay safe. #YOUR FAVOURITE DRAMA QUEEN.”

Nollywood actor, OC Ukeje has debuted his singing career with a single which features rap star, Vector. The single whose visuals was released few days back is the official soundtrack of the actor’s latest movie “Potato Potahto” which features actors like Ghanaian stars, Joselyn Dumas, Nikki Samonas, Chris Attoh and Nigerian stars like Joke Silva, Blossom Chukwujekwu, OC Ukeje among others.
Back in the early 2000s, it was a trend for Nollywood actors to delve into music. A good list of thespians including Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Desmond Elliot, Nkem Owoh, Patience Ozorkwo dropped more than just singles but albums and would have continued but for the generous criticism of entertainment industry savvy Nigerians.
It isn’t a tidbit surprising that Ukeje would explore his musical prowess but we all are grateful that it did turn out better than most actor “singles”. It is in fact an impressive debut! See visuals:

In a post shared on Instagram earlier today, Davido stated that he has no grudges against all the media houses that shared false reports about him. See post:
