Filmmaker, Omoni Oboli Opens Up On What Inspired Her Recent Movie; “Wives on Strike The Revolution”

Amidst the reports of the upcoming singer and her daughter who was gruesomely murdered by her husband, Nollywood filmmaker and actress, Omoni Oboli has finally revealed what motivated her box office breaking movie, Wives On Strike The Revolution.

In a series of Instagram posts shared by the actress, she revealed that the movie was created to lend a voice to the increasing reports of domestic violence across the world but largely in Nigeria. In her words:

“Arrrrrghhhh I’m so heartbroken! What a waste! Why the innocent baby girl as well?!!! I’m sick to my stomach!!! I decided I HAD to make #WivesOnStrikeTHEREVOLUTION because I was sick and tired of hearing about domestic violence. I used the tool I had, my voice which is film to shed light on a very scary topic! I followed closely a case early last year and this is what I told the victim who thankfully, narrowly escaped with her life…’my dear, marriage is great I know, I’m in it but it’s not the only great thing in life. Life has plenty purpose outside of marriage. Once there’s any form of violence (and I’m speaking for both male and female) run for your life! Forget about what people will say! You can only hear them if you are alive. Believe me, no marriage is worth dying for and nobody is indispensable! Don’t listen to society! Flee!!! If you have kids, take your kids and run!!! Do not ‘stay for the kids’! Even if you survive, they will grow up to hate you for it! Don’t teach the next generation by your actions or inactions that domestic violence should be condoned or tolerated!’ Marriage nor be by force abeg! If you can’t stand the heat, leave the kitchen! If you can’t stand someone anymore or they offended you, leave them before you will say devil pushed you to kill them! 
See my brother, my sister, run!!! We’ve gotten many messages from people who were touched by our movie and who now have the courage to speak up and seek help. Pls don’t die in silence. Talk! Shout! Cry! 
I don’t know what happened in this case but if this man truly murdered this beautiful woman, his wife and his own child may God…may the law take its full course! We are watching!” #justiceforalizee#EndDomesticViolence #LetLoveLead#RipAlizeeAndDaughter#StopDomesticViolence

Alizee and her daughter were murdered by the singer’s Italian husband. Investigations are currently ongoing to ascertain the cause of murder.

Wizkid & Davido Emerge Winners in Just Concluded 2017 MOBO Awards

November 30, 2017
Post Image

The 2017 edition of the Music of Black Origin (MOBO) awards held in First Direct Arena, Leeds, United Kingdom and Nigeria’s biggest (rival) stars, Wizkid & Davido emerged winners of the night.

The 22nd edition of the prestigious black music award might have thrown both Wizkid & Davido in another war of superiority as although Wizkid emerged winner in his category; Best International Act, beating star artistes like Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar , Cardi B among others to the award, Wizkid was also nominated in the Best African Act category which Davido carted away. .

As the online debate on who the bigger African international act continues to intensify on social media, we at African Entertainment think both artistes are equally amazing and have done absolutely well in pushing Nigerian music to its current place in the international market.

Well done Wizkid & Davido !

Aww! Yvonne Nelson’s Baby Daddy, Jamie Roberts Finally Takes a “Reality Check”

November 24, 2017
Post Image

It appears that the hiding is finally over as new mom, Yvonne Nelson and her photographer man, Jamie Roberts have finally agreed to go public with their romantic relationship. This comes after the UK citizen took to his Instagram page to share a photo of himself and the ace actress with the caption “Reality Check”.

https://www.instagram.com/p/Bb1y1cNAnsj/?taken-by=myeyeswide

Jamie Roberts and Yvonne Nelson welcomed a daughter a few weeks back after she hid her status for months, throwing fans in a state of quagmire.

Nelson probably hoped that her baby daddy’s identity would be kept hush but trust the level of scoping in this part of the world, his identity was hurriedly unveiled shortly after her Wow magazine baby bump debut interview.

Identity of Yvonne Nelson’s Jealously Hidden Baby Daddy Hits the Internet!

The hilarious part of the entire gist is that after Yvonne Nelson debuted her bump, Jamie Roberts gave a very impersonal shout out to the actress which reads

“The biggest Happy Birthday possible to the one and only @yvonnenelsongh 🙌🏼 Ghana’s finest 🇬🇭 May God continue to bless and protect you throughout your days. Not only one of the strongest women I know but also one of the greatest of friends there can be. Thank you for your love and support but most of all.. thank you for introducing me to WAAKYE! 🍽 😋, God bless you… oh and PS, congratulations on the WONDERFUL news 😉 #YvonneNelson #happybirthday#godbless

Which she responded to with a love emoji.

We are super excited for the new parents.

I wanted to put a hilarious spin on it, especially when the divorcees become victims of their own tricks.” Frimpong-Manso is well known for her positive and complex portrayal of African women in films.

Afrobeats star singer, Oritsefemi & PR Guru wife, Nabila Fash will be walking down the aisle in 2 weeks time and we hear (from the horse’s mouth ) that the ceremony is free for all.

The couple revealed this bit of their 25th November wedding in a recent interview with HipTV where Oritsefemi revealed that there will be no strictly by invitation tag on his wedding and despite the fact that the wedding will be available for all his fans to attend, he guarantees maximum security.

You would recall that early this year, in April to be precise, Oritsefemi and Nabila Fash tied the knot legally in a private ceremony in his Lagos island mansion. The ceremony was long over even before the press got a wind of it.

Nabila Fash claims that her court wedding was her ideal style of what a ceremony should look like. When further probed, the PR Guru revealed that she really has no choice seeing that her man is the “man of the people” and she has already got her dream wedding earlier. See video shared by Hip TV. The couple are so adorable:
