Comedian Princess 7month Old Marriage Crashed

According to Nigeria Eye,
the seven-month union between ace female humour merchant, Oluwadamilola
Adekoya, popularly known as Princess, and Adeshola Jeremiah has crashed
as the chubby comedian said they split due to “irreconcilable differences”.
It was learnt that the marriage had not been a bed of roses as both parties
had been having incessant fights, which necessitated family and friends
intervening on several occasions.
Princess, a graduate of Theatre Arts from the University of Lagos, got married
on May 8, 2013. She earlier confirmed the split to NE at comedy show which
took place recently at Muson Centre.
Princess said, “It is true, my marriage has ended. We got married in May. We
tried to work it out but we couldn’t.
“It happened a while ago. It is not easy for a marriage to end. All the
excitement of marriage has passed. We wanted to keep it out of the public for
a while.”
She continued “People have been calling me since. I opened up about this at
an event yesterday. It wasn’t a case of domestic abuse. We just had
irreconcilable differences. Nobody wants her marriage to crash. I am the one
in the spotlight, I didn’t think it was a news I should broadcast. But eventually,
I had to open up. God knows best, He would strengthen me. It is better to try
than not to try at all.
“Now, I even use it as a joke. People who call me should also tell me they
have a job for me and not to call me and cry and ask how it happened.”
The news from the stables of the humour merchant is coming barely days to
the New Year.

Experience Of A Weed Smoker

I saw this somewhere, its funny and I just have to share it. Enjoy reading.....

I had just moved out of my parents house
and was sharing a room with my "friend". I
had no idea he smoked weed, despite his
suspicious movements and signature weed
scent (abi na odour?).
Barely two weeks after moving in with him,
my worst fears were confirmed as he
started bringing home his weed smoking
buddies and they would occasionally roll a
wrap and smoke it right there in the room or
mix the weed with beans or spaghetti.
Being a very curious person I always
wondered what made them happy after
smoking, so I decided to find out for myself
(wrong move).
It was a very hot day in February, a
Saturday I think it was, my friend was out as
usual. I searched everywhere for his stash
but couldn't find it so I decided to go and get
mine.
I arrived the weed joint all sweaty and
nervous, half expecting to get mugged but
nobody seemed to be aware of my presence
there, they were all on different planets all
expect one I concluded that he must be the
seller so I approached him and the following
conversation ensued:
Me: how far?
Weed seller: I dey
Me: I wan buy weed
Weed seller: how many parcel?
Me: parcel ke? Iro oo, na just small i need
Weed seller: laughs really hard. bolo leleyi
sha (meaning this guy is a dunce oo)
Apparently, a parcel of weed is that small
wrap, I didn't know that. I thought it was
something very large.
I gave him 1000naira and he gave me a tiny
wrap of weed with a white paper, I was
surprised when he gave me 950 as change. I
couldn't believe weed was that cheap.
On my way home, I decided not to smoke it
but mix it with beans because I thought that
it will be better that way (another wrong
move).
Long story short, I cooked beans and added
the whole weed, ate it and called my friend, I
told him ogbeni, I just ate weed oo and
nothing happened to me this one that you
people will eat and be feeling funky, I don
chop am oo. My friend was like, ehen you be
strong man oo.
I decided to take a quick nap before doing
laundry, I woke up about 20 minutes later on
the floor, I was banging my head on the floor,
and I couldn't stop, my heart beat was so
audible and fast, everything was extra bright
and extra loud.
After a few minutes of head banging, I was
able to get up from the floor,
I felt as if I had just gained access to a part
of my mind that I never knew existed
previously.
It was scary and cool at the same time. I
could feel the blood flowing in my veins (you
have to experience it to believe it. Though I
strongly advise against it). I felt so
uncomfortable in the room, it felt like I was
in an oven.
Suddenly, a voice in my head wisphered
ogbeni bo aso e joor (off your clothes), I
obeyed. The voice came again oya sa re
(now run). That was when I realized that the
weed had taken effect, so I decided to take a
shower to see if it will calm me down, but
the water felt so hot on my skin so hot I ran
out of the bathroom.
I called my friend to see if he could help me
make sense of what was going on but he
laughed at me, he asked me the quantity of
weed I took and I told him I used a whole
parcel, he said guyyyyy you don eff up! If
you no sleep in the next 30mins, you go mad
oo. Go chemist make you go explain
yourself.
By this time things had escalated, I had a
severe itch at the back of my head that
wouldn't go away no matter how hard I
scratched and I was convinced that the
beating in my chest was an evil spirit that
could only be killed with a punch.
I ran to my neighbor - Champion and told
him, Champion e jo e fun mi lese laya
(champion pls punch me in the chest). ti e ba
gbami lese laya mo ma ku oo (if you don't
punch me I will die oo).
He hissed and walked out having had
enough of such nonsense from the boys in
the boys quarters.
The voice in my head came again - iwo na o
de gba ara e lese laya abi o ti fe ku ni (why
don't you punch yourself in the chest or do
you want to die?) I punched and punched but
there was no difference.
The house was getting hotter, the voice in
my head was getting louder, the itch in my
head was getting worse, and the evil spirit in
my chest was getting louder.
Then came the voice again - oya ma sare lo
(start running). So I started running but on
getting outside in the sun, I felt so cold I was
shivering but that didn't stop me from
running (I would have given Usain Bolt a run
for his money on that day).
On getting to the chemist, i realized I was
bare footed, I told him I had a severe
headache I needed something to make me
sleep immediately. He gave me the drug and
I chewed it right there in his presence.
Next I asked him to give me a drug for evil
spirit, that was when he realized something
was wrong with me and chased me out.
I got back home and tried to sleep but my
heart beat wouldn't let me, so I ran back out
this time around to a nurse in the area, first
thing she asked was - kilode o wo bata ni?
(why don't you have your shoes on?
I told her Jackie Chan ti gba bata lowo mi
(Jackie Chan collected my shoes). I was
finally able to explain my situation to her and
she took me in, tied something around my
elbow and injected me directly in the vein.
I passed out immediately only to wake
around 1 or 2am in the middle of the night
with the worst kind of hunger I have ever felt
in my life. I ate a whole loaf of butter field
bread in one sitting without butter or tea.
I came home to a hero's welcome, my friend
told me e be like say your head no carry am
but e go better make you try am once more
so you go dey use to it.
The following day while the house was
empty, I packed my Ghana must go and like
the prodigal son in the bible I went back
home to my parents.
It's been a few years since that experience
but the lesson I learnt is an unforgettable
one. My curiosity hasn't gotten me in trouble
again and my circle of friends have since
changed.

Woman Burns Daughter's Body With Iron Over Baby Food(pic)

A woman, identified simply as Mrs. Maxwell,
has been arrested by the police for allegedly
assaulting her daughter, Blessing, with a hot
pressing iron.
Blessing, a primary three student of the Lagos
Model Nursery and Primary School, Ikeja GRA,
was allegedly assaulted last Monday by her
mother for licking the baby’s food.
It is gathered that the incident came to light
after a neighbour, who lived within the Police
College Barracks, Ikeja, with the Maxwells,
allegedly called the authorities of the LMNPS to
complain about Blessing’s condition. Blessing’s
father is said to be a police corporal.
A source within the school, who spoke on the
condition of anonymity, said, “It was last
Friday that we got the anonymous call. At the
time, two of Blessing’s younger siblings were in
school, so we called them aside and asked after
Blessing.
“At first, they were both scared that they
would get into trouble with their mother if
they told the truth but they eventually opened
up and said their mother had used a hot
pressing iron on Blessing.”
The Head Teacher of the school, accompanied
by some other employees of the school, was
said to have visited Blessing at home.
It was learnt that on arriving at the Maxwells’
house, Blessing was seen sitting outside their
flat, sporting burn marks all over her body.
The source said, “We tried to question Blessing
about what happened to her, but she was
scared of her mother. Eventually, we went into
the house and confronted the mother, but she
lied that hot water had mistakenly poured on
Blessing.
“When we asked if Blessing had received
medical attention for her injuries, her mother
got annoyed and dragged Blessing into the
house. She then refused to answer more
questions. Since it was a police barracks, we
thought it wise to leave quietly before things
got out of hand.
“The most painful aspect of the whole issue is
that despite Blessing’s wounds, their neighbour
told us that she had been carrying out house
chores like before. From what I saw, that girl
is so injured that I didn’t expect that she
would be able to come to school for the rest of
the term. Not one of us guessed that she was
being abused at home.”
Reporters gathered that both mother and child
were picked up by officials of the Lagos State
Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty
Alleviation after the school authorities alerted
the ministry. Blessing was said to have been
picked up by a Lagos State Ambulance Service
bus.
When our correspondent contacted the Child
Director, WAPA, Mrs. Fadairo, she said, “I
cannot talk at this time. We are at the hospital
and Blessing is in critical condition.”
Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer,
Ngozi Braide, could not be reached for
comment.

Actress Empress Njama Fires Back At Timaya

In a recent interview with the Punch Timaya
slammed his ex girlfriend, Empress Njama. The
singer and songwriter stated that she had made a
really negative impact on all his life.
As the interview went viral, Empress prepared her
own reply for the ex- boyfriend:
“People who are mature can depict what is true and
what is not. I am not ready to say anything.”
She doesn’t seem to be as bothered as most
women will be if they were in her shoes.
Empress further claimed the comment didn’t in any
way bother her.
“Why would it bother me? It is one thing to be hurt
over such statement and another thing to be
disappointed. I wasn’t hurt and I wasn’t even
disappointed. Worst things have been said and
written about me but the people who know who I
am would tell the difference.”
Empress said she was more interested in what is
happening in her life at the moment rather than talk
about “what doesn’t make sense”.
“I am more involved with my birthday and
celebrating it with the orphans and the less
privileged.
I am better off talking about this than to talk about
what is not important. I am too busy making money.
People who know you will always know how
positive you have affected their lives. I am
surrounded by so many people who have shown me
love so there is no reason for me to be pained,” the
actress said.

Saheed Balogun Drags his Ex Wife, Fathia To Court Over Name

Few years ago, Saheed Balogun reportedly said he would soon stop his ex wife, Fathia Balogun, from using his name.

Saheed was quoted to have said “She is my ex. As for my name that she is still answering, the deed will be done soon. The Nigerian law says that after three or four years, you can do something about it. If somebody wants to keep my name, what of the new person coming in? This has nothing to do with grudges.”

And now, it looks as if Saheed is set to do something about his threat.

A reliable source informed Saturday Beats that the actor had taken his ex to court insisting that she drop his name.

Recall also that Fathia had also reportedly boasted in an interview last year, that nobody could stop her from using her name.

Fathia had said, “I laugh, my name is Fathia Balogun and it’s going to remain Balogun; nobody can ever change that and nobody can stop me from answering that name.”

When Saturday Beats contacted Saheed over the recent development, the actor chose to be evasive.

“I have told you that I don’t like talking about my private life. I will talk about my new project. Go and meet those people telling you about this story,” he said.

Several calls were also made to Fathia Balogun, she didn’t respond. A text message was sent to her, she didn’t respond.

My Relationship With Empress Njama Affected Me Negatively- Timaya

In a recent interview by punch with Bayelsa born controversial music artist, Timaya
advised that, “you should not date somebody who
already has a negative record. In my own case, it
affected me at that time. I feel that a relationship
should be between two people and not exposed to
the rest of the world. Only a smart man is able to
keep his relationship private.”
The couple dated back in 2009 and had since been seperated and had since not been able to settle their differences. Empress has since maintained that there can
never be a reunion between her and Timaya stating
categorically that the dude is her past.
