“I watched the video interview of Tiwa Savage. And I have a few thoughts on it.
Seems to me that the basic idea, coming from a PR perspective, was to pull a fast Olivia Pope ish on the scandal which broke a few hours ago. And understandably so. Tiwa Savage is a Brand Ambassador for a few top brands such as MTN, Pepsi and Pampers.
For those who could not watch the interview with their phones,Read the edited quotes of her interview below.
-. When I woke up, I thought they found him dead. My first thought was that we need to find him, he is suicidal, and we need to make sure he is alive. I didn’t even know what he had said. Someone took my phone from me, they don’t want me to see what was said online. I was just sacred for his life.
-. At around 10 and 11, Banky W’s Mum and his family were praying, and we got the call that he was found in Lekki, and that he has been taken to Banky’s House.

According to an eye witness who was around the Lekki toll bridge, Tunji was spotted trying to jump off the bridge but some of his friends were there at the right time to stop him from jumping off. According to the eye witness, Chukwuma Ani, Teebillz hit his car from behind around 9am and he refused to apologize after he confronted him.
He further stated that he saw Teebillz drive to the middle of the Lekki toll bridge, come out of the car and walk to the railing of the bridge. He stood watching what was going on, suddenly two cars drove close by and one light skinned man, who turned out to be Banky W and Peter Okoye came out shouting and telling Teebillz not to jump. He had more to say:
"I thought I was watching a movie" Ani told LIB "the man held the railing and tried to jump over it and that was when the yellow man held him and started shouting for help. The two of them nearly fell into the water. I quickly joined the yellow man to pull the guy out and while we were struggling with him, one PSquare twin (Peter Okoye) and Banky W joined us to pull the man out " Ani said
Nollywood actress, Stella Damsaus has reacted to allegation that she was a ‘husband snatcher’.
The actress was lambasted by fans and followers after the news of her relationship with fellow actress, Doris Simeon’s ex-husband, Daniel Ademinokan, went viral.
Reacting to the ‘husband-snatching’ tag which she had been labeled , the actress cum gospel artiste in a recent chat with ThisDay, said:
“I have kept mum on the allegation until now and I feel it’s time I expressed myself.“One of the comments I have seen consistently, over and over again is, ‘Stella snatches somebody’s husband’; ‘Stella the husband snatcher’; which is what has been going on.
“And I had sworn that I would never talk about it or even listen or stress myself about the issue. But I have decided to talk about it now, so that I end it once and for all’, she said.
“How is it possible to go to somebody’s home, take a happily married man, take his son away from his home and say follow me.
“Let’s assume you are a man, and according to their story, he is happily married inside his home with his family complete, and I walk into that home to forcefully take a man, able-bodied man, and a kid, away from somebody’s hand and you are there looking at me.
“How does that work?
“So logically if people actually sit down and think about it intelligently, how do you snatch somebody from somebody and the person is there looking at you?
“So when you see a man who has settled ties with a woman and decides to move on with his life and you feel that there is something in this man that you like and he likes you, is there a problem there?
“I am not a kid. I am 38 years old. I am not about to start hiding myself’ she said

Experts say that the highly drug-resistant strain of the sexually transmitted superbug is at risk of becoming incurable if the only fully effective antibiotic remaining fails.
Efforts have been made to track down the sexual partners of those infected with the disease, which can possibly result in infertility.
Public Health England (PHE) however, reportedly acknowledged that efforts to contain the spread have been of ‘low positive outcome’.
The spotlight of this ‘super- gonorrhoea’ was discovered after the Chancellor of the Exchequer; George Osborne, cautioned that resistance to antibiotics will become “an even greater threat to mankind than cancer” if nothing is done about it.
Public Health England further said that more cases of super gonorrhoea was a “further sign of the very real threat of antibiotic resistance to our ability to treat infections”.
The British Association for Sexual Health and HIV alerted the clinicians, prompting them to monitor cases of high-level drug-resistant gonorrhoea and trace sexually infected partners.
Dr Elizabeth Carlin, a neonatologist in Englewood, New Jersey was also quoted to have said that “The spread of high-level azithromycin-resistant gonorrhoea is a huge concern and it is essential that every effort is made to contain further spread.
“Failure to respond appropriately will jeopardise our ability to treat gonorrhoea effectively and will lead to poorer health outcomes for individuals and society as a whole.”

I prefer Wizkid pose jor!

Mr. Odion Omoarebokhae, the husband of the gospel singer, is accusing the senior pastor of a Pentecostal church, identified as Apostle Psalm Okpe, of allegedly killing his wife, Yvonne Omoarebokhae.
A housewife, Mrs Florence Njideka Chukwuma has been arrested by the police at State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Panti, Yaba over an alleged attempt on the life of her husband, Chinedu over a house property in Lagos State.
According to PM News, Florence allegedly bought a gallon of petrol which she poured on Chinedu’s body, she then took a lighter to set him ablaze during a quarrel.
However, before she could achieve her goal, Chinedu jumped fence and escaped, suffering injuries as a result of the attack.
Linda Ikeji's who was present at Wizkid's meeting with the Lagos Commissioner of Police, narrates what truly happened.
"So, I am going to write about this Wizkid matter for the very last time. Anything else after this will no longer concern me. So Wizkid and I met with the Commissioner of Police today and when the Commissioner asked me what I wanted them to do with the case.I told him that I wanted peace. And the reason why I insisted on peace and not to drag the matter further i.e go to court, is because Wizkid and his lawyers have been apologizing since Friday, up until today!
I spoke with Wizkid through his lawyer on Friday April 15th where he tendered an apology to me and said he wasn't a violent person, that he didn't mean what he said, that it was just an emotional outburst. And then he asked for forgiveness.
But despite forgiving him, he still had to show up at the Police HQ to officially apologize and write an undertaken which he did today.
I see a lot of negativity has come out of this case with Wizkid - with many folks bashing me for reporting a threat on my person. But here's my consolation and why I am glad this happened. I promise you, especially the ladies, Wizkid will never threaten you with harm again. At least not in public. I believe I am the last bus stop. He will think twice before threatening another human being again on social media. A police file has been opened for him, and he has been cautioned. The day he threatens another human being again with harm, then.
Having said that, I turned down taking a photo with him and the police commissioner this afternoon. One of his people took a pic of him and the commissioner with me in it and my people insisted they delete it. Not because I haven't forgiven him, I just don't need the extra drama.
I wish Wizkid all the best and will continue to celebrate him.
God bless us all."

According to a report on ThisDay, Nigeria's former military president, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (rtd), is reportedly seriously ill, a source close to his hilltop mansion in Minna, the Niger State capital, has informed the publication yesterday.
The source also disclosed that the former military leader has been ill for a while, resulting in his inability to attend most public functions.
Though ThisDay could not ascertain the real cause of his illness, the source apart from saying that it was age-related, added that he might be suffering from a relapse of the radiculopathy disease which has troubled the former Nigerian leader since he was head of state.
It was also learnt from the source most times, he is unable to walk unaided without a walking stick or the assistance of his security personnel as he has also said to have emaciated a lot and looks pale.
The illness of the former military president became public last week when he attended the valedictory dinner for the former Niger State Chief Judge, Justice Fati Lami Abubakar and was aided out of the venue before the end of the event.
It was said that Babangida now travels to Abuja frequently where he receives medical attention and has cut down on receiving visitors at his home.

Xinhua News Agency reports that, the Supreme People's Court and China's national prosecuting body said that bribes or embezzlement totalling three million yuan or more will be considered 'extraordinarily huge value' and could incur the death penalty, or a life sentence without parole.

After suffering massive backlash for baring her breasts in an upcoming movie, upcoming Nollywood actress, Peace Maria Francis, has come out to defend herself. In an interview with Nollywood Insider, she said:
“Show me love and appreciation, and not condemnation.This is about my profession. It is all because I wanted to use it to tell the real story of what happened back then in our country, Nigeria. It is also in a bid to tell our younger ones how we started back then, and the only way to do that is to express it in a professional manner.I am a Christian, for crying out loud. I fear God and worship him as best as I can. But would that stop me from doing my job? I think that shouldn’t. Some ask how much I was paid to expose my body like that. Others want to know ask why I did it.They say I am desperate and a paid prostitute. All I want them to know is that I am just a good actor, who takes her job with the seriousness it deserves. I only played the character given to me and interpret the role well. I’m not here for fame or money."
