Catch Up On The Happenings Last Week
People who are often in the public eye came under scrutiny. The worst-hit were people who made their marital lives public, as people wouldn’t stop snooping around.
Catch up on the trendy stories that made the previous week:
A tale of forgiveness
Former Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye housemate, Tega Dominic deactivated her Instagram account after expressing her frustration over online bullying. Tega revealed that she is mentally exhausted while admitting that she is not perfect. She added that she is done with negativity and being bullied online. “I’m not perfect but I’m done! Done with negativity, online bullying, and being judged constantly. I am mentally exhausted,” she wrote.
Tega became the subject of public backlash following her affair with fellow housemate Boma while in the Big Brother house. In an earlier Instagram post, she apologised for her actions and asked for the public’s forgiveness.
Nick and celibacy
America’s father of nations, Nick Cannon has decided to stay away from his title after welcoming his seventh child earlier this summer. The 40-year-old entertainer said that he has decided to embrace celibacy for the time being after making headlines this past year for having four children with three different women in the span of a few months.
“I’m going to see if I could make it to 2022…,” he said in part. And about the children, recall that the “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” actor said he didn’t understand what all the fuss was all about. Well, 2022 is around the corner.
A few weeks after we heaved a sigh of relief from the Innocent Tuface/2baba Idibia family drama, Nigerian singer, Olawale Ashimi, popularly known as Brymo, alleged that 2baba accused him of sleeping with his wife, Annie.
In a series of tweets, he accused tuface of sending boys to beat him up. He claimed that he “couldn’t decide if it was for supposedly bedding his Mrs or for claiming the spot of the greatest artiste alive!!” Until then, he respected the music star. He said that he had held on for two years before letting this out. Idibia, at the time of writing, hasn’t responded.
As hard as it is to believe, the ideology that wealth brings happiness may only be a fallacy, Akon is saying. The 48-year-old Senegalese-American singer admitted he was happy when he was poor. Speaking about actor Michael K. Williams’s death as an instance, he said that it only proved that success attracts more problems. Williams is suspected to have died of a heroin overdose.
Speaking in an interview, he said that as an African child who grew up in poverty, “I also know what success looks like… I’m having more problems successfully dealing with all that comes with success than I had when I was poor.”
Trouble in paradise
Wife of Kano state Governor, Dr. Hafsat Umar Ganduje regained her freedom from the dragnet of Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) after a financial entanglement with her son, Abdulzeez Ganduje.
Dr. Hafsat Ganduje, who was compelled to report herself to EFCC headquarters in Abuja on Sunday, was quizzed for more than five hours for her alleged involvement in a land scandal.
The governor’s wife, who was drilled over alleged illegal hijack of land property worth billions of naira, was granted an administrative bill under the influence of her husband, who accompanied his wife.
