8 Séx Scandals Involving Entertainers And Celebrities In Nigeria

entertainers and celebrities are always in the public eye, even as the media are watching their every move.

The spotlight is beamed on them, so rumours or news of aberrations in their private lives are often sensationalised and blown out of proportion, especially when sex is involved, it threatens the victim’s career and everything around them, including their families, friends and colleagues.

Whether it’s in the form of alleged sex tapes, rumoured infidelity or rumoured extra-marital affairs, the Nigerian entertainment industry has had its fair share of sex scandals.

Wizkid’s alleged séx tape

Image

With the release of his debut album, ‘Star Boy’ in 2011, a star was born. The singles off the album were chart-toppers and radio hits, which had the singer raking in shows by the hour.

Meanwhile, fame had its price, on the road to fame, he waddled through a pool of infamy, including a sex tape scandal that almost obliterated his budding career.

Few months after he was falsely reported to have been arrested in Scotland with drugs, a sex tape appeared on the internet.

The sex tape, which went viral, showed a Wizkid look alike in a sexual act with an older white woman.

The Ogun State born singer later denied being in the video. ‘I think you are either blind or stupid if you ask me about the tape,’ he wrote on Twitter.

Wizkid also released a song titled ‘It wasn’t me’ to clear up all the rumours about him.

From his relationship with Banky W, the drug rumours and of course the sex tape scandal, in the ‘No church in the wild’ by Kanye West and Jay Z cover, the singer rapped: ‘Them say I was caught hands down in a video, them dey run their mouth everyday like radio; nor be me dey the video, (It wasn’t me) dem just put me for gbege na bad man way, only jah go judge their ways.’

The song also featured former EME label mate Skales, but years later, all seems to have been forgotten and this scandal never had an adverse effect on his career.

Mo’cheedah and Eldee’s Twitter nude drama…

Image Image Image

This came like a thief in the night, because the deed was done in the dead of the night, but by morning it blew up, threatening the career of then princess of hiphop, Modupe Oreoluwa Oyeyemi, popularly known as Mo’cheddah, and the home of married music veteran Lanre Dabiri A.K.A Eldee the Don.

In the early hours of Monday, October 3, 2011, a funny conversation between Mo’cheedah’s Twitter account and that of Eldee’s occurred.

‘If people here with us see it, just say one of the guys also in the hotel posted it to you,’ tweet from Eldee’s Twitter handle to Mo’cheedah, read.

What followed after was shocking: a nude picture of a Mo’cheedah look alike was posted by her Twitter account to Eldee’s handle.

It sparked up a whirlwind of controversy the next morning as it became a trending topic on social media and the entertainment blogsphere. Was Eldee having an extra-marital affair with Mo’cheedah? Why was she sending him nude photos? Who hacked their accounts? The questions came from everywhere.

It was alleged that those tweets were intended for the secrecy of the Direct Message feature on Twitter, only for it to leak to the public eye.

The two stars denied these allegations, insisting there were hacked. ‘Pls tweeps my acct has been hacked. Disregard my tweets, I’m working on securing my acct. And of cos that is not me!,‘ Mo’cheedah later wrote on Twitter. ‘Someone is fucking around with my account!! If I fuckin catch you!!!,’ an obviously furious Eldee also wrote on Twitter.

Mo’cheedah went quiet musically after this scandal, but just made a comeback last week with an impressive single which featured reigning rapper Phyno. Keep your Twitter password safe, Mo! Please…

9ice, Toni Payne and Ruggedman’s rumoured love triangle…

Image

This started with just a song. After separating from his wife of almost two years in 2010, 9ice, in a song titled ‘Once bitten twice shy’ (the ninth track off his album ’Tradition’), sang about catching his lover giving his friend ‘nodding’ a term often used for oral sex.

This brought about media frenzy and another sex scandal in the Nigerian entertainment industry that can never be forgotten in a hurry.

A deluge of allegations and rumours followed. Ruggedman was featured in the drama, with many alleging that he was the friend mentioned in the song.

Those familiar with the situation continue to allege that Ruggedman had an on-off affair with Payne before and during her relationship with 9ice.

Ruggedman and Payne have since insisted it was false. Though this particular scandal has been forgotten, the true story about the song by 9ice is yet to be known.

Frustrated with the negative publicity which the scandal brought upon her, Toni Payne, via a Facebook post on Tuesday, April 20, 2010, pleaded with 9ice to come out with the truth about his song.

The plea was supported by Ruggedman. ‘#justsayin #FEDup A song I heard n loved months b4 it came out is causin sme minor issues so I will address dis issue by simply stating that its not my job to clear d air but I also think its time the person who sang the song ‘once bitten’ comes out and tells the truth to every1 and let us no who he sang it for,’ Toni Payne wrote on her Facebook wall.

‘TONI PAYNE My advice to you is you get 9ice to step up and clear this thing about this song once and for all so all this bullshit can stop. HE SANG THE SONG,ONLY HE CAN SAY WHO HE WAS TALKING ABOUT IN THE SONG. SO 9ICE WHERE ARE YOU?’ Ruggedman added. Four years later, 9ice where are you?…

Wizkid’s baby mama drama

Image

Wizkid‘s numerous shenanigans since he hit stardom ensure that he makes a second appearance on this list.

In August 2011, the EME pop star Wizkid had fathered his first child at 21.

The singer had impregnated a certain Shola who was an undergraduate at the time.

Wizkid, who was rumoured to be dating Tonto Dikeh back then, vehemently denied the fatherhood claims.

‘No, I don’t. It’s just a rumour, I’m not thinking about that right now,’ Wizkid denied having a child.

The reports, however, shattered many hearts with many fearing that their darling young and enchanting singer had fallen into the hazardous circus of the entertainment industry.

Meanwhile, to his fans and the public, he had lost the good boy image which initially made him a child star.

The star boy in 2014, is no longer that fresh faced young singer we saw in 2010. He is now a record label owner and ladies’ man, who lives up to being a father. Continue reading 8 Séx Scandals Involving Entertainers And Celebrities In Nigeria

FG to boost Nigeria’s education with $500m

11dcf7b26ba1154766468f9482ddb5af_thumb_Minister-of-Education-Prof.-Ruqquayat-Rufa’i

 

Former British Prime Minister, Mr. Gordon Brown, said on Monday in Abuja that Nigeria would benefit from a pool of $500m fund targeted at boosting educational development in the country.

The fund, he added, would also serve as additional resources to support the development of the Universal Basic Education in Nigeria.

Brown stated this at the meeting of the Coalition Interventions to support access and quality of education in Nigeria hosted by President Goodluck Jonathan at the State House in Abuja.

He said, “The Federal Government of Nigeria has made available $250m for investment in education. What we have managed to do by talking to the individual agencies over the last few days is to match that $250m by the additional $250m thus making possible new investment of $500m in education in Nigeria.”

A breakdown of the fund as stated by Brown indicated that Global Partnership for Education and the United States Agency for International Development, had agreed to contribute $100m every year, for the development of universal education.

Brown said the Federal Government in collaboration with state governments, had already provided $250m for the development of education in the country.

He added that the additional cash transfers would be for training, and the introduction of new technologies that would match the initiatives that had been attracted by Alhaji Aliko Dangote, from the business community.

He added that “Nigeria stands to benefit from a seven-year term European Union grant that will be devoted to the development of education.

“I have talked to the head of the development commission for the European Union and he said he would tell the government of Nigeria to submit an application from time to time for the next seven years, the term that will be devoted to education development in Nigeria.”

Brown added that he also sought further assistance on behalf of Nigeria from the head of Department for International Development, who according to him, said that he would be happy to entertain new application for private support of additional cash transfers from the individual states.

He also promised that he would visit Nigeria in January and would want to meet states that were interested in moving the new innovation forward.

Speaking on behalf of Jonathan on the occasion, Vice President Namadi Sambo, said that the Federal Government had identified access and quality “as the two strategic goals for the four-year Strategic Plan for the Education Sector 2011-2015.”

VIDEO, SODOM AND GOMORRAH IN NAIJA : FEMALE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS IN LIVE S*XUAL ACT

Having s*xually active ladies live together in the same room, off campus, in the guise of roommates, comes with its challenges and sometimes such challenges is s*xual immorality. 
 
I observed that many who live their lives like this in the university often end up on the wrong side of society when they eventually graduate and join the larger world, as immorality would have become a way of life for them, turning into full time runs girls…

 
If only these ladies in such immoral act have people that can call them to order before such becomes a big issue in their lives!
