Achebe hates Awolowo, Yoruba race, says Adebanjo



A leader of the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, has faulted extracts from Prof. Chinua Achebe’s latest memoirs on the Nigerian Civil War accusing the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo as the initiator of the pogrom against the Igbo.

The memoirs coming 42 years after the war, Adebanjo said, reinforced “Achebe’s pathological hatred for Awolowo and the Yoruba race.”

After months of keeping mum about her pregnancy, the actress has finally revealed the identity of the man responsible for her pregnancy – Dino Melaye, a former member of the House of Representatives. I hear Dino is a married man? Wow! Anyway, below is what the popular Yoruba actress, who is six months pregnant, told E247mag.com… 

“I actually met Dino  through Lola Alao sometime March or early April  and honestly speaking I was in need of help and Lola Alao promised she would introduce me to someone who could help. The person turned out to be Dino.  I actually visited him in Abuja. He was actually forthcoming and helpful. I was not the only one involved then but he took particular interest in me.  We got to know each other and at a point I was scared because he was all over me. Overtime, he showed me he meant well and we became good friends.

“Somehow, one thing led to the other and we started dating. He appeared nice, loving and showed me a lot of affection. He was quite frequent in my Lagos house. I remember when he came to Lagos for the birthday of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu,  I went to pick him from the airport to my house.  We were an item and it was known to a couple of our close friends in the industry.  Shortly after, I travelled to Canada and it was while in Canada with my colleagues, Foluke Daramola and Moji Olaiya, that I felt the symptoms of pregnancy. It started with the usual morning sickness. I could not believe it. It was painful because I could not participate in all the programmes lined up for us in Canada.   I can remember that it was Moji Olaiya that went to buy the pregnancy kit that later confirmed I was pregnant. Immediately, I called Dino in Nigeria and shared the news with him. He was excited about it and he told me he was looking forward to seeing me in Lagos soon. When I returned, he received me with joy and on an occasion he took me to his hometown, Kabba in Kogi State. He told me he wanted to marry me. He was so nice to me.” The romance heightened over time, they became closer than ever but somehow there was a dark cloud lurking in their stars.

“Sometime in  May, I went to London, came back and he called and said again that he actually wanted a big  society wedding for me but since his parents are clerics and the rules and regulation of their church  frowns at pregnant brides he would want me to get rid of the pregnancy. I was shocked. I wept uncontrollably all night. Later, I called him nd told him since that’s his new position, I will advise him to go to his parents with another and marry. I’m not keen about society wedding but love to keep the pregnancy and have my baby. He did not allow me to say my mind when he dropped the phone. I called him severally but he refused to pick my calls. I sent emissaries, friends to him but he refused to listen. His complaint, according to my friends who took the courage to talk him was that I was rude. You can imagine, Dino refused to understand; he failed to know that I’m no longer a baby. This is my joy, joy unspeakable to me, something I have been praying for and he wanted me to be funny with it.  It’s ridiculous.” Since June , Bisi told E24-7 MAGAZINE, Dino, never showed, he never came.

“He stopped picking my calls. But each time I tried to call him with another mobile number,  he would pick the call but as soon as he finds out I’m the one on the phone he will drop it.  I have not wronged Dino, I have only chosen to do what is right to me but he sees it differently.  I’m no longer a kid.  It’s painful that such action is coming   from a man who claims he loves the masses, the oppressed people  of this country and he is oppressing me. My fate is in the hands of God and He will see me through. I have not been working to earn any money but I have found favour before God and a couple of my friends. I know I’m not alone in this. God is with me.”

Asked if Lola Alao had intervened, the Bisi  Omologbalogba fame actress said: “ I spoke with her; I pleaded with her to talk to Dino. I was shocked when she told me that Dino said he was not responsible for the pregnancy. I took her up on this.  I asked her if she believed him. I found it insulting that at my age I wouldn’t know who is responsible for my pregnancy?  But then, I’m not surprised because I have been fed with a lot of information that Lola and Dino are dating now.”other mobile number,  he would pick the call but as soon as he finds out I’m the one on the phone he will drop it.  I have not wronged Dino, I have only chosen to do what is right to me but he sees it differently.  I’m no longer a kid.  It’s painful that such action is coming   from a man who claims he loves the masses, the oppressed people  of this country and he is oppressing me. My fate is in the hands of God and He will see me through. I have not been working to earn any money but I have found favour before God and a couple of my friends. I know I’m not alone in this. God is with me.”

Meanwhile, Dino Melaye, has dismissed claims by Bisi that he’s responsible for her pregnancy, saying it is an “Africa Magic story”.

Femi Branch returns to movies after accident that left him unable to walk for months

Some of you probably didn’t notice that the dark and hunky actor has been off the movie scene for quite a while now. He injured himself on the set of his movie in December 2011 and only just recovered from the injury a few weeks back.

Femi Branch seriously injured himself when he jumped and landed on drainage steel during a stunt on a movie set in Ikorodu. The iron on the drainage cut his leg. He was treated in a hospital and was also treated by a Hausa herbal specialist. The actor was unable to walk for months. He said throughout the months he was unable to work and make money, he got support from good friends. But he’s back now and grateful for the opportunity to return to his craft…but no more stunts, he says 🙂
