Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade has got some golden words for her fans today! The actress shared a clip of a recent interview on Instagram where she revealed that she never reads blogs. Why? Omotola Jalade claims that avoiding the blogs has helped her sustain her relationship as well as her peace of mind!

Oh Dear! “I am Not Adesua’s EX” Cries Out Nollywood Actor, Kunle Remi

Omotola Jalade further revealed that at first, she felt her resolve shake and in her words, “I thought I would die” but she soon learnt to live without it and that has been the best decision she has ever made. Her argument sprang from the notion that social media builds people to think less of themselves.

You would recall that Omotola Jalade gave some words of advice to newly married couple, Banky W and Adesua Etomi some weeks back. The open letter was a suggestion to keep their married life off social media clearly because of its negative influence.

See excerpts of Omotola Jalade’s long deleted open letter :

“Dear Banky and Adesua,
After capetown, everyone leaves…it’s just you two.
My darlings if possible, stay off social media a bit.
Communicate continuously
Preserve your friendship not just your love
Even as you two have now become one, don’t forget to respect your individuality.
We love you and are rooting for your special Love”.

Lydia Forson Recounts Her Successes After Being Body Shamed & Denied a Movie Role

December 5, 2017

It is a motivational Tuesday from the desk of Ghallywood BBB actress, Lydia Forson. The award winning actress took to her Instagram earlier today to share how being body shamed and denied a movie role did not deter her from accepting/loving her body and going on to be one of Ghana’s most sought after actresses with multiple awards to show for it.

Lydia Forson ‘s inspiring message reads “I was rejected NOT because I wasn’t good enough for the role, but because I didn’t fit into the producers idea of what a ‘beautiful’ woman looks like. (mind you I know I’m fcking 🔥) But guess what? 
This big ass and tits won me an AFRICA MOVIE ACADEMY AWARD, AFRICA INT. FILM FESTIVAL AWARD, GHANA MOVIE AWARD, SUPER WOMAN AWARD, CITY PEOPLE AWARD, FASHION ICON AWARD and a Your Father is drooling over me MEGA AWARD. It’s OK if I’m not your cup of tea; just know you’re not my kettle of hot water for my tea either. I don’t have a problem with my body, you do; so go and FIX your problem.

It’s no news that Lydia Forson is a strong advocate of anti-body shaming especially on social media. Most of her controversies in the past few years involved either addressing a troll for body shaming her or addressing the entertainment industries bias especially on plus size actresses.

A good thing she adorns herself with the cloak of confidence!

Oh Dear! “I am Not Adesua’s EX” Cries Out Nollywood Actor, Kunle Remi

November 30, 2017

While Nigerian celeb couple, Banky W and Adesua Etomi kept us glued to social media for their wedding, another Nollywood star, Kunle Remi suffered the harsh judgement of fans of the well wishers. Over the last couple of months, rumors had swelled that Kunle Remi was Adesua’s ex and wasn’t such a great boyfriend before Banky came and swept her off her feet.

Kunle Remi further inspired more dirt talk as during Adesua and Banky’s star studded engagement and wedding ceremony, Kunle was MIA and did not share any congratulatory message on social media.

Gist now is that the formerly silent Remi has come out to not only discredit the rumors but also attempt to convince us that he shared his goodwill messages privately (a first as his social media accounts show he is quite great at congratulating newly wedded couples publicly).

In a public service announcement shared on his Instagram page, Kunle Remi cried out:

“MY NAME IS KUNLE REMI and Not ADESUA’s Ex.

Silence,they say is Golden.
I have been silent, but some people have taken this as an invitation to take the piss!! I have chosen my words and thought this action through, so read carefully, yes, pay attention I will only say this once. 
I am not a bitter person neither am I a sadist.
‘If’ you know me, (if you don’t, ask about me from those that do) you would know I am a very positive and I radiate good vibes only, I am not here for any form of negativity whatsoever.
My name has been used inappropriately, and it is time I set the record straight. 
I intentionally waited till after the festive of the beautiful wedding ceremony had come to a natural halt out of respect for the couple. 
I have not till this present day said to any blogger, or mentioned on any social media platform, or granted any interview admitting or confirming that I was ever in a relationship with the former Miss Adesua Etomi who as well all know tied the knot over the past weekend, neither do I recall her doing the same. 
Yet some jobless people cooked up stories and sold it to other jobless people and then jobless readers and commentators believed it and hence the rumors started circulating with no proof other than pictures of us on a Movie set titled (FALLING. A great film by the way, It’s on Netflix if you haven’t seen it). Contrary to the opinion of people who feel theirs matters, I don’t have to congratulate the beautiful couple publicly to prove anything. Some of us would rather do our things privately. You CAN’T believe all you see on social media (some people will still not understand).
Take for example ; Recently I posted a picture of my Beautiful Nephew on my Instagram and as expected, rumors started again without any confirmation that I have a baby. (Quote me) I never confirmed to anyone that he is My Son. So there you go!!. Not all you see or read on social media is the gospel truth.
Having said that this is my advice to those this may concern; Just for your sanity try to be sure about the rumors and gist before you tongue lash people or judge people. Sometimes Not everyone is strong enough to handle it. 

P.S: The Adesua/Kunle Remi and we can confirm that the rumors were 50 percent accurate as our correspondent had seen the couple (Adesua and Kunle) on some PDA at several open spaces in Lagos way back in 2015 and word around the industry also confirmed that they were an item.

Celebrities Stage Social Media Protest to Call Out Slave Trade in Libya

November 28, 2017

For the first time in a while, Celebrities all over Africa have come together to support a cause! We must point out that this follows a post shared by American RnB singer, Chris Brown, addressing the modern day Slave Trade market in Libya where black immigrants are allegedly sold to Europeans for some dollars.

Female immigrants are allegedly bought, locked up and used as sex slaves. Following Brown’s post, this fact became a sensation with many Celebrities taking to their social media handles to call on their government to bring in citizens of the affected countries who are trapped in Libya.

In Nigeria, some Celebrities who have acted on the issue include; 2Baba, Davido, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Omoni Oboli, Adekunle Gold, Simi among a bunch of others.

Ghanaian actress, Lydia Forson has also spoken up about the atrocities on her social media platforms among other Ghanaian stars. Kenya’s music group, Sauti Sol have also taken to Twitter to protest the injustice.

💔 Where is the love?

A post shared by AG (@adekunlegold) on

The heart wrenching detail of the ordeal that these African immigrants endure are too overwhelming to put into words but safe to say that countless die while trying to escape their masters. A report claims that West African immigrants especially from Nigeria and Ghana are sold for as little as $400 in open slave trade markets.

A report by the UN shares that the trade works by preying on the tens of thousands of vulnerable people who risk everything to get to Libya’s coast and then across the Mediterranean into Europe – a route that’s been described as the deadliest route on earth.

Libya is the main gateway for people attempting to reach Europe by sea, with more than 150,000 people making the crossing in each of the past three years.

Since there is no proper registration process for the tens of thousands of refugees arriving in Libya, the business of detention centres is unsupervised in some parts of Libya and stories of torture, rape and forced labour have emerged, the report asserts.

When the centres get too crowded, people are then allegedly sold off like goods in an open market.

The social media protest however seem to be working on the government as although Nigerians in the past couple of months have been brought back to the country, between last night and today, over 300 Nigerians touched down Murtala Mohammed International Airport.

Say no to slave trade in Libya!

In response to the constant accusations, Binta Diamond finally lost her cool and bashed the overzealous trolls by claiming that the Wizkid- Tania relationship was long dead and she clearly isn’t the only woman who slept with the singer while he was actively dating Tania. What’s more,” it ain’t cheating if he ain’t married”.

Like that wasn’t enough, Binta Diamond also took to her Instagram status to give clarity on her views while she celebrated the Thanksgiving holidays with her family. See screenshots:

Back in January, 2016, Binta Diamond who is Guinean welcomed a son which she claimed belonged to the singer. At the time, Wizkid denied the child who was already name after him (Ayodeji Balogun) which prompted a public display of a paternity test which proved positive.

Fast forward to 2017, in a tweet of the singer that trended, he gave a shout out to his two baby mamas including Binta. See tweet:
