‘I’M DONE’ – HARRYSONG’S WIFE BREAKS SILENCE AMID MARITAL CRISIS
Last week, Alexer wrote about her need for God’s help as she was “officially done”.
“I’m done officially. God help me,” she wrote in a now-deleted post.
Alexer’s post came a few days after her husband admitted they were having a marital crisis and appealed to the public to respect his family’s privacy.
The ongoing issue between the couple became public after an alleged WhatsApp between Harrysong and his wife got leaked.
The chat showed the singer asking his wife to abort a pregnancy.
In another chat, Alexer accused the singer of having several side chicks, to which he admitted and claimed that they were better than her.
Harrysong tied the knot with his wife in March 2021 in Warri. Their union is blessed with two kids.
AYRA STARR APOLOGISES FOR DISRESPECTING SUNNY ADE AT THE PRE-GRAMMY PARTY
Last Friday, Ayra Starr’s gesture towards King Sunny Ade, the legendary singer, at an event in Lagos sparked outrage on social media.
The Mavins Record artiste performed at the event, while Sunny Ade received an award of legacy, which was presented by Bose Ogulu, Burna Boy’s mother.
A viral video showed Ayra Starr appearing to ignore Ogulu while greeting someone else beside her.
She also moved to Sunny Ade’s seat and extended a handshake to him and others seated nearby.
The footage fetched Starr a chorus of condemnation, with some critics describing the singer’s actions as “uncultured” and “disrespectful”.
In response to the backlash, Ayra Starr apologised to Sunny Ade, whom she referred to as a “legend and uncle”. She said she was overwhelmed by nerves when she arrived at the event.
She clarified that she had greeted Burna Boy’s mother before the video was recorded.
‘YOU’RE SENSELESS’ | ‘YOU HAVE ZERO SELF-ESTEEM’ – MUM ZEE, TACHA TRADE INSULTS
Tacha discussed her preference for marrying a wealthy man to avoid kitchen duties early in the morning.
“You go dey wake up 4 am to dey cook, what nonsense are you cooking?” Tacha said — in what appeared to be a dig at Loveth.
An X user also drew Mum Zee’s attention to Tacha’s remark. In response to the post, Loveth referred to the reality star as a “person wey no get sense”.
Infuriated by Mum Zee’s comment, Tacha took a swipe back at her, accusing her of lacking self-esteem and independent thinking.
She described Mum Zee’s husband as a “long-throat hungry looking man” and urged her to utilise the community funds she received in educating her daughter.
“Take a look at this homeless piece of sh*t with zero self-esteem. Zomb*e that has zero ability to think for herself at her big age!!” she wrote.
“Hope you use all that community funds you got from begging to send your daughter to a good school! that way she does not turn out this stupid
“Hating on a fellow woman because it is popular to do so!! or waking up 4 am to cook rubbish for a long-throat hungry-looking man.
“See!! it will never be my fault you all do not understand “context” and to even think I was praising this fuul on an episode of the Big Friday show is just funny.”
PORTABLE HOSPITALISED DAYS AFTER ‘ATTACK’, SAYS ‘I DON’T WANT TO DIE’
Last Monday, the singer shared videos of himself involved in an altercation with some men after he allegedly refused to refund N3.5 million for a featured song.
While explaining the incident, the singer revealed that he had a deal to feature on a song by two US-based artistes.
He said the artistes agreed to pay the sum of N2.5 million to his manager last year.
However, feeling his price had gone up this year, he requested an additional N1 million, which was paid.
He said despite shooting a video with them at Ajah, they allegedly attacked him and demanded a refund.
He added that his eyes were “bruised” during the alleged assault.
In an update shared on Friday, Portable, who was lying in a hospital bed, lamented that he was “feeling so much pain”.
He also cried out that he does not “want to die young” while calling for prayers from his fans.
In one of the videos, Portable revealed his wounded legs and arms soaked in blood.
KOLLINGTON DEBUNKS DEATH RUMOUR
Last week, Kollington Ayinla, the legendary Nigerian Fuji singer, refuted rumours of his death.
Earlier, there were claims that Ayinla was battling an undisclosed illness and was in critical condition.
Some rumour peddlers also alleged that he had passed away at a Lagos hospital.
The 75-year-old musician, however, shared a video last week stating that he “is alive”.
Kollington also appreciated the medical personnel at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) in Ikeja for their “excellent” care.
Speaking from his hospital bed in the clip, the ace singer said without the medical care of the doctors at LASUTH, he probably would be dead by now.
KWAM 1 ADDRESSES FRESH RUMOUR OF MARITAL CRISIS
In March last year, there were claims on social media about the pair having marital issues.
The rumours circulated after K1 rejected a kiss from his wife during an event at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The couple, however, denied the reports.
The claims resurfaced again after the Fuji singer did not celebrate Ropo’s birthday on social media on January 1.
The musician, however, refuted the fresh claims last Thursday.
K1 shared a photo of himself and his wife on their wedding day. He described the day as “glorious and never to be forgotten”.
The 66-year-old ace singer also described the rumour as the “work of lazy-minded people gathering unfounded stories to trend”.
YUL EDOCHIE HOLDS FIRST SERVICE AS A PREACHER
Yul Edochie, the Nollywood actor, held his first service as a preacher on Sunday.
Last week, Yul unveiled his online church called ‘True Salvation Ministry (TSM)’, adding that sermons would be streamed live on YouTube on Sundays from 5-6 pm.
The announcement sparked both curiosity and confusion among his fans.
During his first service on Sunday, the actor preached about the need for people to love “ourselves and shun hatred”.
Yul said he will always tell the truth even if it hurts him or his listeners, adding that “only God knows why he chose me”.
VICTORIA INYAMA: MY EX USED TO ASSAULT ME WHENEVER MAN UNITED LOST
The couple got married in 2003, but their union hit the rocks in 2018 when Inyama opened up about suffering abuse.
She revealed that her pastors advised her to pray for her husband’s temper and to tread carefully around him.
She said her husband was always violent whenever Manchester United, his favourite football team, lost a match.
Inyama said this led her to develop resentment towards the team, especially now that they are divorced.
She added that she experiences a sense of relief whenever Man United suffer a defeat, as it serves as a reminder that she has escaped abuse.
