Last week was eventful in showbiz. TheCable Lifestyle examines the top entertainment stories that got tongues wagging in the past seven days.
Thousands of youths across cities in Nigeria staged protests in demand of justice over the death of Mohbad.
Mohbad died on September 12.
The Lagos state police also conducted an autopsy on the late singer while they await the result.
Kayode Egbetokun, the inspector general of police (IGP), charged police authorities in Lagos to conduct a thorough probe into Mohbad’s death. Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu equally asked the Department of State Services (DSS) to join the investigations.
HARRYSONG: I WOULD HAVE DIED IN THE HANDS OF MY FORMER LABEL
The Nigerian singer recalled his ordeal with Five Star Music, his former label owned by E-money.
The singer, last week, alleged that he was tormented, attacked, and abused for seeking personal growth.
Harrysong, while seeking justice for Mohbad, appealed to record label owners to stop mistreating their signees.
“If not for the grace of God, with the help of some very few good men. I would have also died in the hands of my former label,” he said.
“The torment, attacks, abuses, and operations back to back. Just because I have served and wanted to move on and grow a little for myself.
“It was hell for me, the general public believed everything they said about me then. Fans, supporters, and show promoters, bullying me everywhere. One of my friends said he would buy drinks, and celebrate if I die of hunger and depression. I am alive today just for the few that stood for me and by me.
“Because they know the true story and refuse to be influenced by lies just to kill an innocent man, record labels should stop these do-or-die things, killing and destroying young talents just because they want to prove label power and supremacy.”

JULIANA OLAYODE: I BLED FOR 4 MONTHS DURING BATTLE WITH PCOS

Olayode revealed that she bled continuously for four months during her battle with PCOS.
Olayode said she decided to stop medications and take control of her health by combining prayer, faith, and lifestyle changes.
