Written By Nigeria Latest Gossip on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 | 9:53 PM

When few years ago, Shan Goerge released her debut single which announced her arrival into the music industry from the movie world, many thought she would be a fantastic singer. But events later show that she is rather needed in the play-acting profession than the singing profession.

After bleak success her then song made in the market, the controversial actress has again gone back to the studio to do something different. To force her way into the music industry again, Shan George employed the services of another controversial person, K-Solo to make a beat for her new single 'Ababa'.

Shan didn't stop there as he featured ace musician, Sunny Nneji in the song. The single was released last week almost at the same time Tonto Dikeh and Stella Damasus released theirs but the buzz Tonto's singles generated has overshadowed her own release.

Floods In Nigeria: FG Loses N6.75Billion Oil Revenue Daily

nigeria_total In view of the recent floods in Nigeria that have plagued several areas of the country particularly the oil-rich Niger Delta, reports have emerged that Nigeria is losing about $43million  or N6.75billion daily to production cut back. Industry regulator, Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) announced that the country’s daily production fell by about 18 per cent from 2.6million barrels daily to 2.1 million barrels per day, even as it plans to hold a new licencing round by the year end to boost production reserves.

Rumour has it recently that the actress, Empress Njama and Egberi Papa 1 of Bayelsa, Timaya have settled their differences as they were said to have exchanged pleasantries at the 37th birthday of 2face which held last Tuesday, at Club Rumours, G.R.A, Ikeja, Lagos. But reacting to the story when contacted, Empress said she has nothing in common with Timaya again.

“ I and Timaya are not dating again. He saw me at the party and came to exchange pleasantries with me. There is nothing wrong with that. If we are not dating again does not mean that we are sworn enemies,“ Empress said

According to the rumour mongers, the erstwhile lovers arrived the venue at different time.

Empress was said to have sat at the same table with some of her Nollywood colleagues when Timaya reportedly got closer to her and whispered something into her ear as they both laughed.

“He was just trying to be nice and Empress replied him, saying “That’s that.” a source disclosed.

If you recall, Timaya and Empress Njamah began dating over four years back. But in August, 2009, at a church in Festac, Lagos, Timaya was reported to have been beaten by some naval men when he stormed the church with the aim to attack Empress.

He was said to have caused fracas in the church, shouting that Empress should return the key to the car he bought for her. The controversial singer also reportedly called Empress a thief, a situation that led to their permanent separation. Timaya has since moved on with his life. In May 2012, he welcomed his first child, a baby girl from his girlfriend.

Written By Nigeria Latest Gossip on Thursday, February 17, 2011 | 7:15 AM

She ventured into the movie industry not too long ago and from the look of things; she is already making a statement in the industry. Annie Macaulay, one of the women who had kids for Africa’s hip hop singer Tuface Idibia is a Computer Science graduate of the Lagos State University.

Q.You are one of Tuface’s baby mamas; do you think you are lucky to be part of the lucky ladies who bore children for the hip hop star?
A.I cannot categorically say if I am or not lucky to have had a baby for Tuface Idibia. All I know is that I am happy that I am lucky to have a beautiful baby in this world and she is Isabella. She turned two last December and I tell you it was a wonderful time. Her dad was also around to make the day a loving one; not all dads most especially for a guy like Tuface find time for this but he was still here for the party and with his daughter. All I can say is that I have a baby for one of the best daddies in the world.

Q.So you are saying the relationship between you and Tuface is perfectly okay just for the sake of your daughter and nothing more.
A.He is a wonderful and loving dad to his kids and mine is not an exception. We have a fantastic relationship; we are happy parents.

Q.Is it true that you are the favourite of the many women in Tuface’s life and that you guys actually contacted a secret wedding last year?
A.Where did you hear that (laughs in between). I don’t know ooo. I am not married to Tuface or any other man, I am a single hardworking mother and my only joy is that I am proud to have my baby; Isabella is my world.

Q.If you are not why is there no love lost among the three of you I mean yourself, Pero Adeniyi and Sumbo Ajaba?
A.I don’t have any problem with any of Tuface’s women; we are all cool with one another. I am cool with all of them and I love my baby’s brothers and sister. It is all love.

Q.But this is not what is been speculated out there. What about the confrontation you had with Pero Adeniyi sometime last year at the after party of the Tuface’s live in concert and another confrontation that happened at Airport hotel?
A.All these accusations are the past and happened a long time ago; I don’t want to say anything about it again. And please don’t ask me anything concerning this again; let’s moves to another question.

Q.Why; do you have something to hide? You need to clear your name.
A.I don’t have anything to hide; I am innocent. OK I said i don’t want us to talk about this.

Q.Okay then tell the world who the real Annie Macaulay is and what is it that the public do not know about you?
A.Well as you know my name is Annie Macaulay, am from Akwa-Ibom state from Ifiki local government. The only girl of a family of four studied Computer Science at the Lagos State University LASU. I did Theatre Arts at UNILAG. I have a fantastic beautiful lady Isabella and a full time Actress. It is what I have always wanted to do and i am working on several other projects coming out soon.

Q.Talking about your acting career; when did you actually debut in Nollywood professionally and how rewarding has it been financially? How rich are you.
A.I have always acted all my life; while in school I have done a couple of productions but now that i am done with my studies I will say professionally it is 2008. 2010 is one of my best years and I know it will only get better by the day. In the money aspect now, o boy it hasn’t really paid off oo but I thank God that I am comfortable.

Q.So how soon is marriage coming in, as you can see that seem to be the new trend in the entertainment industry now looking at the number of celebrities that have wedded of late?
A.For now I don’t think am ready for marriage. I want to focus on my career and build the brand Annie Macaulay so that I can make more money. Right now what I am concerned about is my baby and my career. There is no man in my life right now; he would come when God says he will. It’s never too late. I don’t have to follow the trend.

Q.Have you ever been sexually harassed?
A.A capital No is the answer. Never been and doubt if I will ever be because I don’t walk in that direction. I know what I want and believe in myself. One other thing that must be considered is the way you present yourself. If you dress provocatively and expect not to be sexually harassed then you are wrong. The way you dress has a lot to do about this. Moreover it has become a menace to our society. It is everywhere in the banking, telecoms, insurance, entertainment and what have you.

Q.And what is this story about Lesbianism cabals in Nollywood; are you aware of this?
A.I don’t know anything about that; wouldn’t know if such a thing exist because I have never experience it and don’t if I ever will. I am straight and have never believed in such things.

Q.Do you see yourself as an A-list actress?
A.I don’t know what you mean by an A-list actress or what have you. All I can say is that I am an actress and I do my work as professionally as possible. So far my producers or directors have never been disappointed.

Q.What about mentors in the industry?
A.Well I respect the elders in the industry. I am not too much of a mentor person but no doubt there are legends in the industry I hold in high esteem. I wouldn’t want to mention names.

Q.You look very pretty even after a kid; can you tell us your beauty routine?
A.Well I will say that I do a lot of exercise and workout at the gym. I watch what I eat; I do a lot of fruits as you may know it helps nourishes the body. Apart from all these I don’t any other special thing I do to keep fit. I eat well, exercise and don’t want to be on the fat side. That is why you see that I have lost so much weight. I am very happy about the way I look now and am so glad that you like it.

Q.Your baby Isabella is still very young and considering the fact that you are a single mother; how do you combine having to raise a baby and the rigours of acting which requires travelling all the time?
A.Remember that she is over two year old now. It was not easy at first because I had to take her everywhere I go but right now she is of age now and has started school. The Nanny is always there for her while I don’t abuse her motherly privileges too. I am always with her no matter what and my Mother is still very much around and available to take care of her too. She couldn’t have been in better hands. So i have time for my career and can spend weeks, months in location if I have to just the job to be done. If you look you will see that i have lose a lot of weight, it’s all because of having to be there for my baby and at the same time do my job as an actress. God have been my pillar and strength.

Q.Give us an insight into some of the movies that you have featured in and some that you are presently working on?
A.I have done some that I can’t start counting now. And I tell you in the next couple of weeks you will be seeing more of me on the screen now ever than before. Just watch out for Annie Macaulay.

Q.I saw this advert on TV about a show which you are planning; what is it all about?
A.It is just the other artistic side of Annie that my fans will be seeing. It will be coming out soon. Just like you have seen it is called Unwind with Annie Macaulay and the advert is everywhere. We are already shooting and in just a matter of weeks you will start seeing it run on TV station across the country. That is all can say for now.

Q.What is this misconception that people have about you and when you hear all these stories about you that are not true, how do you react?
A.People think that I am a snub; it is what i have been trying to be with over the years. All I will say is that they should get to know me and am sure they will have a change of heart. It is never good to judge a book by its cover. I am easy going person, they will see. And about bad stories, before I used to be very down when I read this and that not true about me but now I have developed a thick skin to it. They don’t move me as I have realized that it is one of the prices you have to pay for being in the limelight.

Q.What does it take to make a head way in this industry; it is not as easy as it seem I suppose?
A.I would say if you have got the talent, believe in yourself and go for your goal. You will get

Omotola Jalade’s Embarassing Dress at The Grammys 2011

Written By Nigeria Latest Gossip on Wednesday, February 23, 2011 | 3:17 PM

Omotola Jalade was the first Nollywood actress to walk The Grammy 2011 Red Carpet and it was all good news till pictures started coming in. The red carpet appearance was made possible by her international mangement
 – Bishop Entertainment consult and Bungalo/Universal Records. How we wish pictures didn’t come!!

BTW, #DeadCurious: where are the red carpet pictures with Tiwa Savage in them?

Also, what could one of Omotola’s ‘international’ manager’s palm be doing so close to her bum (as seen in the picture below) – he could have almost grabbed her bum. Playa, your arm should be on her lower back, make sure captain – that’s her husband for those of you who don’t know – catch you.

See what fans said

Is like this babe is pregnant cos she has added a lot, well you look good all the same

I can’t believe Omotola wore dis r*bb**h (rubbish) 2 d grammys. like r u 4 real? is dat all she can afford? talk abt dressin 2 suit ur body…her tummy is protruding, her arms r thick…wat ever happened 2 a long gown 2 cover d legs, n did she hav 2 show her black bra like dat? c’mon omotola, i kn(o)w u cud hv (have) done better…u can afford a stylist girl…don’t b a scrooge…

That‘s not the real omotola. This is fake omotola That lady is not omotola. That‘s fake omotola right there.

If na Geni or Rita Domnic walk this red carpet America go know say them come. See the prom gown she s wearing. Pls (please) actors guild should contribute money for her, she needs an emergency lipo- suction. See how ruff her front hair is. And who is this guy grabing her a**

This Omotola is looking so aweful (awful)… well, I think say na because she don dey age. I mean, nothing good about Omotola here at all. Wait a minute, why did that guy put his hand on her butt? Naija men, they can’t stop tresspassing.

Where Omotola come throw way her marriage ring put abi she think say we no go see am? Wow, it means she didn’t want people around to know she’s married. I for descipline (discipline) am if to say I be her husband. You are a disgrace to womanhood….looser!!!

Onome-(Dublin Ireland)
Why should Omotola allow that American dude to place his hand on her huge buttocks? Secondly, the mimi (mini) gown she wore is too tight, revealing her shape. She suppose to have gone for a cute dinner gown, she also need to shade (shed) some weight, instead she is adding more flesh. Honestly, am not too impressed.

She look like any other lady on a casual date. Those belly fat needs to be lost. Is not only for her kind of job also for her health wise!!!!!!!!!

Nawa o I saw dat hand on her bum. Omosexy pls give urself (yourself) some respect ur (your) kidz are watching.

How could u? Hope u didn’t tell any body there that u from Nigeria. U look so trashy, ur dress is too short, ur bra is showing, ur hair is messed up, no class at all. Look at ur tummy, when are u going to start dressing according to ur size…I cant believe u did this. Stop calling urself Omosexy. There is nothing sexy about u.

Watsup with that dress? its too short, ur bra is showing, ur hair is messy, no wedding ring on ur finger, another man’s hand is on ur butt, ur tummy is all out, please start wearing clothes that suits ur body. U so classless, not the diva u claimed to be. Very soon Ini Edo will start teaching u how to dress, Hisssssssssssss

How can a decent married and mother dress like this? And how indecent can it be for anoda man put his hand on ur butt like that? And again, u don’t av to wear a revealing dress like that to look sexy. Do you not see how Genevive and Rita dress{sexy and very very decent}.

And again, u avnt (haven’t) got the shape to flaunt for God’s sake. U could be pardoned wearing that kind of dress if ur well trimmed. Omotola God knows I love you to bits. but i get dissapointed with you sometimes. Ur well loved by people,so don’t take that love away pls.

Omotola looks like a big bag of garri. Gosh she looks terrible. Cant imagine how a star of this kind shud look like dis. No wonder nobody noticed her. She probably took the last picture with the guy holding her ass when all the stars had gone

Who invited her anyways and who advised her to wear this number? She looks like a sack of potatoes, Omo, americans white/black are all slim with flat stomach,, she looks terrible.

I think she is pregnant,

Everything I wanted to say has been said. First omotola, pls go and buy ardyss body magic, biko. Secondly loose weight, i mean I’ve seen U slimmer. Thirdly, PLEASE stop embarassing ur husband. He loves U n respects ur chosen path. Don’t abuse it or make him feel s**p*d. U r married. Respect that and finally ,U can try being close friends with Rita D, I’m sure she’ll let U in on some secrets of dressing up.

I think omosexy went to the salon to make her hair and there were lots of people waiting so, she had to start goin cos she wz runing late…As for the cloth, the gown she wz meant to wear, got burnt while the dry cleaner wz getting it ready…so she had to go to a close by bend down boutique to get smthing… but on getting there, they had only size 10 dresses so she had to manage it dt way…Go on omosexy at least u tried..but it jus didn,t work out…hahahahaa

All u guys are just hating I mean omotola is better dan all des girl nd who said ini edo should have came plaease!!! omotola is da best nd i love all her movies so don’t put Ini Edo and Genieve and Rita Dominic omg (oh y God) they are going to ruin it!!! so Omotola was right cominh….

Mama G
This woman was up to something, cos she was wearing her wedding ring on thumb. About the man she was with, trust Nigerians very soon we go hear the story.


Very disappointed with Omotola’s dress. This is low class, unsophisticated, cheap, ugly, too tight, poor color coordination and a mis-representation of African movie stars. What was she thinking wearing that garbage of a dress at the Grammy awards, did she think she was attending one of the Nigerians or Gh***ian red carpets? ..Humm unbelievable.

Omotola, you said you used to preach in the bus? where are your christian virtues? you should have done better than dress in this unGodly manner, exposing your inner wear, then allowing another man touch your private part like that.

What example are you teaching your kids and other youths who look up to you as a role model? Please people repent for the kingdom of God is at hand. Fame, money, acting, music, beauty will fade away but your salvation in Christ Jesus is your assurance to eternal life.

Actually, this is not omosexy at her best at all. Her hair undergrowth is showing -look closely. She just was not up to her old usual beautiful self here. and she needs the gym now to shed that weight.

1st she was trying 2 hard to get noticed behind d E! Cameras,but dressed lyk dat maybe dey thought she was smebody’s assistant. Wats wit naija celebs and international recognition? Na by force to be tuface or genevieve? get a life and get a gym membership!

u are a f**l Gene cant stand near omotola we all know dat she has only one child and was fat and ugly with her bum dropping on her legs, it took her years 2 dry out like an okporoko so darlin let gene get married and have three more and u will know omotola is d real deal.

When you put up a headline like Omotola at 2011 grammys it makes readers feel like she was in the grammy hall. Truth is she wasnt. She sat in a hall outside the main grammy award hall and wacthed the occasion like the rest of us on a large screen.

The awards are for a rated musicians, music execs, producers, and their family members etc. even American stars sit in the outside halls because they havent achieved world wide acclaim. This is just a pr thing that went wrong. She travelled to america to sit in the a hall outside the main grammy hall. No wonder she couldnt take any pics with one music star.

27 calibre (Ghana)
Omotola I have been your fun since thykingdom come, well you did not reveal yourself as the real omosexy I know and you are married with kids too ,please next time dress very ,well I hate when people insult you even though I 27 calibre i am a gh***in ,please stop calling her names.

OMOTOLA Declares To BBC: Nollywood Will Be Better Than Hollywood [VIDEO]

Written By Nigeria Latest Gossip on Sunday, October 21, 2012 | 8:17 PM

Though Nollywood may be less than 40 years in existence as compared to Hollywood, but according to one of the industry's best, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Nollywood can be better than America's movie industry known as Hollywood.

Soundcity's Juliet's Marriage Canceled Over Money

Written By Nigeria Latest Gossip on Monday, October 15, 2012 | 7:35 AM

There is always two sides to a story.

For what led to the crash of the former Soundcity TV presenter, Juliet, no one can really say but the characters involved in the game of love.

This is kind of an eye opener for many Nigerian ladies who fall in love with a guy because they believe he's loaded with cash and within a few weeks they are already talking about marriage.

According to the story, the model, Juliet met Chima Ojukwu, a US-based guy in September 2011 and within a week they were already engaged. Less than a month into the relationship they had their introduction. Chima followed it with a traditional marriage the next month and they planned their white wedding in the US but that never held, the reason, we gathered, is money palaver and the wedding was unceremoniously called off and the love birds parted ways.

Juliet who has since changed her facebook status from married to single said in an interview, "we parted ways over irreconcilable differences. We were incompatible. At a point, being in the marriage became life threatening. If I was still in it, my enemy may have been dead by now, all in the name of trying to make it work and to avoid what people will say.

"I had to cancel the wedding in America because here in Nigeria where my family and his family are, there were verbal and domestic abuse. Going to a foreign land where I knew no one would have been worse. So, there was no need for the American wedding since it was already failing in Nigeria."

However, those who claim to be aware of what went down behind the scene, said Juliet is a cheap liar. Friends of the guy, Chima, said she pulled out of the wedding because of money.

According to them, Juliet apparently went into the relationship in a hurry believing that Chima has a lot of money since he's based in the US. when they became very close lovers, she got to know more about his true financial state and thought the guy can't do a lot for her. She cancelled the wedding, citing "irreconcilable difference".

Juliet has however denied the allegations, saying love is important to her than money.

Stop the bloodshed!!! Not everyone in Aluu killed Ugonna, Lloyd, Tekena & Chidiaka – Stephanie Okereke-Linus

Written By Nigeria Latest Gossip on Tuesday, October 16, 2012 | 7:03 AM

Nollywood actress – Stephanie Okereke-Linus has also openly condemned the killing of four undergraduate students of the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) by indigenes of Aluu community. Read her statement below;

I have been in shock since the news broke about the four young students slaughtered like chickens in a community called Aluu.

At what point did we lose compassion for our fellow human beings? Death is assured for every life eventually, but no one deserves to die like those young men died – no one! Death dishonoured them. Even in justice there should be civility and modesty. That is why we are humans, and not beasts grovelling in the jungle. That is why we are made in God’s likeness so that we can be like Him – kind, merciful and fair.

Ugonna, Lloyd, Tekana, Chidiaka were young men with dreams and aspirations; Lloyd was already on his way to becoming a rap artiste; who knows what else these men had dreamed up for their future? But with many swipes from heavy metals and planks their dreams were slayed. It is the most gruesome act I have ever seen and I am afraid how this action reveals the true state and sentiments of many Nigerians.

Why do we permit jungle justice? Do we feel helpless with the system thus take justice into our own hands? What are our fears? What would ever justify the actions of a community that stole the lives of students who lived amongst them – lives that only God can give?

We may never know the truth of what really led to the killings at Aluu – that truth died with the four of them. All we can ask is for justice.That is the only way the tears of the mothers of these young lives may dry. It is the only way we all can feel safe because no matter the situation, lives should not be snatched so brutally. This is a society with laws.

As we seek for what is right, let death not procure more deaths. We do not need to burn down Aluu community. We do not need to shed more blood. Not every child, mother and father in the community killed or endorsed the killing of the young men. They too deserve to be protected from the brutality that has ensued from all of this.

Life is a beautiful thing; do not steal another’s opportunity to experience it.

May their deaths not be in vain.

BETRAYAL? Fuji Star, K1 De Ultimate Impregnates Benefactor, Gbenga Islander's Lover, Titi Masha**Keeps Mum

For some months now, allies of popular Fuji star, K1 De Ultimate (formerly known as KWAM 1) have tried everything possible not to let the news about Titi Masha's pregnancy for K1 leak to the general public.

Like two months ago, tissotyio.blogspot.com heard from reliable sources close to Titi Masha, Gbenga Islander and K1 that the Fuji star may have betrayed his benefactor and friend, Gbenga Islander, by impregnating Titi. This is because in the Lagos Island social settings, Gbenga is well known to be the lover of Titi Masha which also an open secret to K1.

So, when the issue was being talked about in hush tones among few people in the industry, tissotyio.blogspot.com sought to hear from K1 on the gist. tissotyio.blogspot.com contacted K1 to hear his side of the story.

After our calls to the Fuji star were not picked by him, we sent a text message to him. The message reads, "Good day sir, I am Osaremen Ehi James, a journalist from tissotyio.blogspot.com. I just want to get your reaction on the rumour that Titi Masha is pregnant for you. I will like to get your side of the story before I publish. Hope to get your response soon. Thanks."

This message was sent to K1 on October 7, 2012 at 9:08pm. As at the time we are writing this story, we have not heard from him.

The song being sung those close to Gbenga Islander is that of discordant and betrayal from K1 for allegedly sleeping and eventually impregnating his benefactor's lover when he (K1) was aware fully aware of Titi's romantic relationship with Gbenga Islander.

Some months back, news broke out that sultry actress Tonto Dikeh and fast rising singer Wizkid are having a well shrouded romance, but things took a new turn last week as Tonto Dikeh finally debunk the rumour in a recent interview. She said and I quote;
Whiz kid is just a friend on twitter, am not in a relationship with him. Those that follow me on twitter knows that I love calling my friends on twitter romantic names like honey,sweetheart,darling etc.I guess that is what people saw about some of my tweets to Whiz kid and started speculating that we are dating. There is nothing of such.

For all the aproko, case close.

Funke Akindele-Oloyede Sets The Record Straight - I'm The Only Legal Wife of My Husband

Nollywood screen goddess and one of the most highly rated Nigerian star actress, Funke Akindele knows she might have to set the records straight sooner or later. "My huband has never been married," she insists in response to much of the hearsay about her marriage to Almaroof.

"I am the woman he got married to. I was married properly. A lot of negative comments came from sadists who want to run their mouths. So because I am a Youth Ambassador or Celebrity, I can't have my life?" she asks rhetorically.

It is my life. If I do things because people want me to, I will end up unhappy. I do what I do because I want to be happy. I would still continue to teach morals and campaign against HIV/AIDS and enlighten the youths. It doesn't make me bad; that is even if it is, because I can tell you authoritatively that my husband is not married to anyone else.

Yes, he has beautiful children, who are not mine now and we have a cordial relationship, which dates back to even before we got married. 'So what if he has kids? Is that a disease? That is where my heart is! I had many non-biological children even before I got married. I take them as my own children, pay their bills and help them. I have always loved children. So now that God has given me these ones, what should I do?

Will people be happier if I had married someone who didn't have children, seem so perfect, put on my make-p and fake smile on the red carpet and start weeping when I get home?' She queries a deadpan ton.

And about my in-laws, they are very wonderful and supportive and my parents and siblings as well.

Culled From Genevieve Magazine


Star actress Mercy Johnson who wed Edo State born Prince Odianose Okojie in a superlative ceremony two months ago,is now keeping her life hushed.

Insiders say the couple after the horrendous media trial that trailed their wedding following
the emergence of one Lovely Okojie who claimed to have been married to Prince Okojie,have decided to live their lives outside the media.

Mercy we hear,no longer speaks to the media and refers everyone who calls her for an interview,to contact her husband.Again,she has also shunned events where she cannot attend with her husband.

Since returning from her three legged honeymoon late last month,Mercy has settled down into her marriage and attends functions strictly with her husband.

A few days after their return from honeymoon,the couple was feted by the Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly and others who are friends of Prince Odi in Benin City.It was from there that the couple flew to Abuja to attend the opening ceremony of Chika Ike’s boutique,Fancy Nancy.

One thing most people don’t know,is that contrary to the belief that marriage will slow down the demand for Mercy Johnson in Nollywood, producers have actually opened a mad race to get her in their movies.

This development,has seen Mercy shuttling between Lagos and Asaba on a weekly basis,to attend to the numerous film roles that she has been contracted to do after her marriage.


Iniobong Edo may be the biggest actress Akwa Ibom State and indeed the South-South can boast of at the moment but those who know her say the name Edo is not her real name as she may have been ashamed of bearing her father’s name.

We gather from close family sources that the star actress’s surname is not Edo and wondered how she got the name.

The source who spoke to us swear that her father, though happy with her success, is not very comfortable with her for changing his name and rubbishing his family name.

We learnt that her real surname is Ekim (Darkness) while she was still struggling to break into the industry, she believed that a name as dark as darkness would not augur well with her, hence she first changed the name to Unwana(Light).But later, she was advised by some friends to look for a more funkified name and after muling for sometime, she decided to settle for the name Edo which to her,is sweet and sharp and does not have to do with darkness at all.

But be that as it may, the name has opened doors for her and no one is sure if a name like Ekim would not have brought her down.

Many who came across this photograph on the internet are quick to speculate that there more between the two than meet the eyes. In fact, speculations are rife that the romantic scene might have been a product of a secret love affair between the two.

A Ghana-based producer who came across the picture online had commented that the picture was a location shot in Ghana, adding that Majid was directing Mercy on how to spice up the scene romantically and emotionally. The flick is yet to be released into the market.

Girl disgraced for stealing blackberry in Uniben Hostel

See what happened when a young 200 Level student of the University of Benin stole a Blackberry Phone allegedly belonging to her girlfriend in BDPA. It all happened when her friend started looking for her BB phone for over 3 hours and could not find it. The girl was later asked if she saw a BB Phone which deny taking.
While the discussion went on, the phone rang and she refuse picking it, it rang again and again until her friend insisted she pick it, but she refuse until argument started which led to neighbors coming to the scene. The phone was later discovered and the boys around removed her clothing and started abusing her body and snapping pictures.

Before we examine the practices that could make a minister or a ministry fake, let’s first see some of the things that have kept the ministries of TB Joshua and Chris Oyakhilome estranged from other Christians, and also make many to believe that they are fake.
The first is the miracles. Most people (believers and unbelievers) do not believe that the miracles often televised by these ministries are real. They believe they are ‘arranged’ or the healings and testimonies are mostly unverifiable. And this lends credence to what Agomoh and Bisi (TB’s former confidants) are saying - that the so-called miracles done in Joshua’s synagogue are fake.

Agomoh said he was part of the team that often arranged or manipulated people to confess of healings and miracles that never took place. He mentioned people who stay in the wheel chairs pretending to be disabled that would later claim they have been healed and that so many with incurable diseases like HIV, cancer, etc, whom the prophet claim heal, actually go home to die.

TB’s former Ghanaian associate - Nii Ayiku Amartey also said the same thing. Listen to him, “TB Joshua came to deceive Ghanaians with manipulated miracles involving 20 Ghanaians who are all now dead.

Kayode of Awakener's chapel and Michael Lathbridge were part of this great deception of Ghanaians and must tell Ghanaians of their part in this crime against the people of Ghana.” Twenty Ghanaians whom Joshua claimed he healed died! Well, Nii should know better because he was an insider.

But this is just a small percentage of the thousands whom we are told die after being manipulated to confess that they have been healed.

The other thing is that these ministries tend to promote their founders, their self-acclaimed spiritual powers, signs, miracles, prophecies over the person Jesus Christ and the gospel. Please, there is nothing wrong with signs and wonders so long they are genuine and done to magnify the LORD Jesus. But these ministries through their powerful and well-equipped media do everything to show how great and powerful their owners are.

Bisi, the former head of TB’s media team elaborated more on this. I still ask why Joshua didn’t take the duo to court for defamation if they are lying, because the revelations in that video are very shocking and unbelievable. Again, sometime ago, I watched Joshua’s prophecy on the Australian Air Ambulance that overshot the tarmac and landed in the sea. It was indeed a perfect material for them. They flaunted it. It was very clear that the whole thing was done to show how powerful the man is. I didn’t see how God, Jesus or the Spirit of God came into the picture. It was all praise to the Great Prophet!

Now, should all these be done in a genuine Christian ministry? Who do you want to please by showing off miracles and signs? And must they be arranged and unverifiable?? What is the aim? And miracles be done with other powers? Can Satan, sorcerers, magicians also perform signs and wonders? Is miracle a sure-proof that a minister is of God? What is the original aim of God initiating the working of Miracles? But can we touch all these here? I doubt. Maybe we will start from the last.

God’s original purpose of initiating miracles and signs is to show His power and sovereignty over nature and the affairs of men. Signs are to convince men that God exists and that His is in control of the universe. Signs are meant to be used to propagate the gospel. They should point or lead people to Jesus Christ and not to the preacher, prophet or pastor.

Anything short of this is definitely satanic. What we see today, especially in these two ministries (and others like them) is like a showbiz or promotion of the persons. They want people to see how anointed, how powerful and great they are. Or tell me why a deliverance session should be televised to the whole world to watch? Now, compare this attitude with Jesus’, who will heal people and tell them not to tell anyone. Today, they even go ahead of the person to tell the world!

Now, let me quickly add that it is not only God that does signs and wonders. Satan and his agents also do. But the word of God called theirs lying signs and wonders. Yes! Listen to 2 Thessalonians 2:9-10, “This evil man will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles. He will use every kind of wicked deception to fool those who are on their way to destruction because they refuse to believe the truth that would save them.” That is the word of God! The book of Revelation said the same thing. The Devil and his agents will do very great signs, miracles, wonders, prophesies, especially in these last days, but their ultimate aim will be to deceive and divert people’s attention from Jesus, holiness and the true gospel.

So just miracles, signs, charity, etc, are not enough to authenticate a ministry or a minister. Satan can also do all of those to deceive people, so says the scriptures. There are so many fake ministries and ministries in the world today and more are coming. Though, some of them did not start out as fake, but unfortunately because of the love of power, money, fame, the glory of the world and influence, they bowed to Satan and are now working for him.

They still bear Christian names, act as Christian organisations with great signs, miracles, wonders, prophesies, etc, but they actually got their powers from the Devil. We will soon talk about charity and good works in the next part. I know you’re itching to hear that. But how do we know the real and genuine ones?? Yes you can know. We will continue next week, God bless!
