Last week was eventful in showbiz. TheCable Lifestyle examines the top entertainment stories that got tongues wagging in the past seven days. 



Basketmouth has finally apologised to AY Makun over their 17-year feud.

The comedian also extended an apology to other people in the industry. 


“To all the people in the industry and beyond that I have offended, I say this to you from the bottom of my heart, I am genuinely sorry,” he said.

“Now to my guy AY, I do not know if my apology is still valid right now, but if it is, please forgive me. And I want you to know that I forgive whatever you did or said knowingly or unknowingly. It is gone. I just want us to live in peace and harmony.

Last year, the two entertainers confirmed they were not on talking terms after they were spotted avoiding each other in public.


In March, AY said his misunderstanding with Basketmouth started in 2006 over money he is yet to receive for a show he anchored for him.


Mavin Records, the Nigerian music label owned by Don Jazzy, is reportedly exploring a sale or investment, with bids from major companies like Universal Music Group (UMG) and HYBE.

The deal’s valuation is estimated between $125 million and $200 million, while Shot Tower Capital, an independent investment bank, is facilitating the negotiation process.


The move is said to be a way for Mavin Records to raise funds for growth amid expectations that the African music industry will gain global prominence in the coming years.


Last Friday, the Lagos police said Feyisayo Ogedengbe, the auxiliary nurse who injected Mohbad, is “the prime suspect” in the singer’s death.

Several suspects — including Ogedengbe, Naira Marley, Sam Larry, and Primeboy — are currently in police custody as persons of interest in the investigation into Mohbad’s death.


Idowu Owohunwa, the Lagos police commissioner, while giving updates on the case, said the “auxiliary nurse administered multiple and highly potent injections which triggered an immediate reaction that eventually occasioned the death of Mohbad”.

“The Auxiliary Nurse who was contacted and invited by Ayobami Sadiq (a.k.a Spending), a friend to Mohbad, on 11th September 2023 to treat the singer at the deceased’s residence at Lekki-Lagos,” the Lagos CP said.

“She eventually came on Tuesday, 12th September, 2023, and administered three different injections which are believed to have occasioned the chain of reactions that directly resulted in the death of the singer.

“She is the Principal Suspect in the death of Mohbad.


“She acknowledged that it was the injections that she administered on the deceased that triggered the reactions which eventually led to Mohbad’s death. Other expert opinions and witness statements corroborated her admittance.

“Her actions of administering doses of Tetanus Toxoid, Paracetamol (IV) and Ceftriaxone injection (IV) on Mohbad at his residence on 12th September 2023 immediately and directly triggered the reactions (including vomiting, goose bumps, convulsion) that eventually resulted in the singer’s death.

“This criminal liability is further heightened granted the evidential fact that as an auxiliary nurse, she is not qualified to administer such medications or function as a qualified nurse. She also did this in a non-clinical environment and in a professionally negligent manner that negated standard medical protocols.”


The actress and producer recently opened up about her struggles on the path to success in Nollywood.

Actress Funke Akindele said one of her past struggles in the movie industry included her denial to partake in movies due to her physical appearance. 

The 46-year-old film star said she was denied movie roles due to her physical appearance, adding that the bullying took a toll on her emotional health.

“While climbing the ladder of success, I met a lot of SHEs, bullies, people that would look down on you,” she said.

“I remember people telling me, ‘You are not fine. You do not have bum. You do not have boobs. You will not be in this film’.

“And, I remember crying. A lot of times I would cry, break down, get into the bathroom, and cry.”


Curtis Jackson, the US rapper fondly called 50 Cent, is considering another concert in Nigeria.

The 48-year-old rapper and actor shared a photo of himself wearing an attire depicting a man from northern Nigeria.

He also hinted that he could hold the ‘The Final Lap’ tour in Nigeria, with a date unannounced yet.

50 Cent is currently on tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his megahit album ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’.

If the rapper eventually makes his trip to Nigeria official, it will become his second visit after his performance in the country nearly two decades ago.


Davido, the Afrobeats star, and Amaju Pinnick, the former president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), came at each other over the weekend because of the 19th edition of the Warri Again concert.

The Warri Again concert was held on October 6 to celebrate entertainers who hail from the Niger Delta region.

Trouble started when Pinnick called out Davido for failing to show up at the concert.

Pinnick, who is currently an executive of the world football governing body FIFA, argued that Davido had received $94,600 to perform at the concert in Delta.

He said a chartered plane was arranged to convey the singer to Warri, which cost the state another $18,000. He added that the organisers eventually replaced Davido with Shallipopi.

Responding, Davido aimed a thinly veiled dig at Pinnick, insinuating that people who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

The singer also announced that he will perform for his Delta fans in December.

He also revealed that he had earlier informed the organisers about his unavailability but wondered why “they continued to promote the show using my name”.
