Here Is A Quick Rundown Of The Week
With every new week comes its troubles and its blessings. This week, potential damaging claims was the order of the day among celebrities as they were hit in different areas of their lives.
Here is a rundown of the week:
The University of Lagos has denied awarding Emeka Okonkwo (E-money), an honorary doctorate degree in Business Management and Corporate Governance. This announcement came after it was reported that E-money received the award from the University on Tuesday alongside the incoming Deputy Governor of Lagos State’s father Olatunji Hamzat. Although E-money in his post said the doctorate degree was given to him by the European-American University in an event held in UNILAG, rumours filtered that it was UNILAG, a claim the institution has since clarified.
Adekunle Gold versus Yahoo Boys
Adekunle Gold was called out for reportedly aiding and abetting internet fraudsters popularly referred to as “Yahoo Boys.” The allegation is coming on the heels of Gold’s wife, Simi slamming Yahoo boys as bringing shame to Nigeria and making the country a laughingstock. Simi who is also a singer said the scammers need to stop listening to their songs. Reacting to Simi’s call out, a social media user pointed Gold’s attention to his wife’s utterances and alleged that Gold edited documents for the said Yahoo boys when he was still a graphic designer, an event he said he is not aware of.

Wizkid and Davido the Alpha artistes
Wizkid and Davido keep teaching Africans how it is done in the music industry. The two artistes who are Nigeria’s biggest exports, made history as they performed with global stars Drake and JCole at the 02 Arena, London and Dreamville Festival, North Carolina, United States respectively. While Wizkid has a collaboration One Dance with Drake, something is definitely cooking between Davido and JCole. As Davido rightly put it, “They said Africa to the World? Nah, it’s the World to Africa!” Brace yourselves, everyone.
Earlier this week, Nigerian singer, Demmie Vee called out fellow artiste, Kizz Daniel for allegedly being a traitor. Demmie Vee alleged that he helped Kizz Daniel with N15 million to resurrect his shaky career. In the same post, he claimed that Kizz Daniel sent men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) to arrest him after he requested for his money. Following up with his post a few days later, Demmie Vee revealed that he never signed a record label deal with FlyBoi Inc owned by Kizz Daniel but a management deal while apologising to Kizz Daniel.
