Nollywood veteran, Clarion Chukwurah becomes born again, says ‘Jesus has saved me’

Veteran Nollywood veteran, Clarion Chukwura says though her profession made her lead a life filled with “glitz and glamour”, she has finally been saved by Jesus Christ, and is now a born again Christian.
The 54-year-old actress made this known in an Instagram post. She said as a humanitarian, she was oblivious to the fact that “with Christ, there are no half measures”.
Chukwurah, who is excited about her new faith, said she is now empowered to save others and introduce them to the relationship she currently enjoys with Christ.
“My Testimony; As an Actress, I played the role of the Bitch and life was all about Glamour and Glitz, and though I was the Humanitarian, I didn’t realise that with CHRIST there are no half measures,” Chukwurah wrote.
“But, Today, HE has saved me -John 3: 16 and like the Apostle Paul-Romans 1: 16 and I will Glorify His Name because HE has empowered me for others to be saved – Acts 1: 8. Jesus Christ is the ULTIMATE…do you know HIM? Are you saved? Do you have a one on one relationship with Jesus Christ today like I do? If so, what is your Testimony?”
The veteran actress was once in a relationship with Shina Peter, veteran afro juju singer. The affair between the actress and the music legend produced Clarence Peters, who is a leading video director.

Jamaican wins Miss World title, says will work for sustainable change



Jamaican wins Miss World title, says will work for sustainable change

Jamaica’s Toni-Ann Singh was crowned as Miss World 2019 on Saturday and said she wanted to use her title to work for “sustainable change” for women and their children.

Asked about the value of beauty contests in today’s world of MeToo# and the drive for equality and respect for women, the 23-year-old graduate of Florida State University said beauty for her was the least important aspect of her achievement.

“I want to make a change that’s sustainable. So if we’re talking women… it needs to be something that will make sure that their children and their children’s children have a different value of life,” an overjoyed Singh told reporters after winning the title in London.

Singh did not specify what kind of change she had in mind, reports Reuters.

“It’s OK to celebrate things like beauty and attributes like strength and those things. But this is so much more,” she said as she hugged her proud parents, Jahrine and Bradshaw.

Describing herself as a “changed woman” after the experience of taking part in the Miss World competition, Singh added: “There’s no way I could chalk it up to just being about beauty, because that’s the last on the list, honestly.”

Singh, who sang a version of the late singer Whitney Houston’s “I have nothing” in the competition, received her crown from last year’s winner, Vanessa Ponce of Mexico.

Jamaicans attending the event hailed Singh’s win as a triumph also for their Caribbean island nation.

“The fact that Miss World is won by a black person is very, very significant to us because it represents a lot in terms of our culture, in terms of how far the world has moved on,” said audience member Christine McDermott, who lives in London.

Alleged Fraud: Duncan Mighty arrested again over Okorocha deal



Popular music artist, Duncan Mighty was in the early hours of Saturday arrested in Owerri, the Imo State capital, in a commando-style operation by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Imo State Police command.



Duncan Mighty, who was one of the celebrity artists invited alongside Faze and others, for the grand opening of the luxury Penthouse Club in Owerri, had concluded his performance and was leaving the club presumably for his hotel when the SARS operatives swooped on him.


Though residents of the state had feared the artist may have been kidnapped but the State Police Command quickly dispelled the rumour while stating that Duncan Mighty was arrested for alleged fraudulent act.



A statement signed by SP Orlando Ikeokwu stated that the musician was arrested following a petition by an upcoming rap artist, M2 who claimed that the Imo State government under Senator Rochas Okorocha had through the office of the Special Assistant on Entertainment entered into a deal with Duncan Mighty to manage, promote and arrange collaboration (Collabo) with other top artistes for M2 and ultimately sign M2 under the Young Wealth record label owned by Duncan Mighty, all at an agreed fee of N11million which was paid in full.



The Police said that since collecting the said money, Duncan Mighty refused to fulfil his part of the deal.



According to the statement, the artist was earlier arrested following the petition and was released on bail on the agreement that he will pay back the N11million if the contract is formally terminated.


The contract was thereafter, formally terminated but Duncan Mighty since then “absconded and all efforts made to reach him proved abortive”, the police statement read.



 “In view of the foregoing, a warrant for his arrest was issued, that led to his arrest early hours of Saturday morning,” the Police spokesman said.



When contacted. Hon. Chukwunonye Irouno, the Special Assistant on Entertainment at the time, who co-signed the agreement with Duncan Mighty, said he was utterly shocked that the artist could resort to such low antics.



He said: “M2 was spotted in a competition organised by my office at the time. The governor was there and all saw how the young lad (M2) performed and wanted to support and give further push to his career in the music industry. The governor agreed to hand the upcoming artist to an established star who will help M2 advance his career and achieve his dream.



 “We agreed on Duncan Mighty. We invited him and he came. Duncan Mighty spoke so very well before the then governor that it is difficult to believe he is the one playing all these pranks. The then governor Rochas Okorocha was visibly impressed and then asked for the cost implication for promoting and advancing M2’s career to limelight.



 “Duncan gave a bill of N11million and there was no debate, the money was paid in full to him as agreed. From then till date, Duncan did not make any effort to fulfil any aspect of the deal.



 “When he was arrested the first time, he agreed to everything we said and promised to pay back the money. He was bailed and immediately he was freed, he disappeared and went incommunicado. It was more like jumping bail. Duncan jumped bail.



“At other times when he was contacted by M2, all he did mostly was threaten the young lad and some of these conversations were recorded.



“Duncan actually told M2 on one of their phone conversations that with the end of the Okorocha administration, that money was gone for good.”

I look up to Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme –Small Daddy



I look up to Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme  –Small Daddy

A talented Nigerian actor, dancer and model, Chinedu Mitchel Chizoba, is popularly known in the Nigerian entertainment scene as Small Daddy. Having been featured in various Nigerian movies including Ariri, Agatha, Onikede, Asunder  and as well in commercials like MTN Xtra Value Bundle (2016),  Divine Intervention, Glo Wishbones among others, the actor spoke to ROSEMARY NWOSU in this interview. 




What year did you decide to join Nollywood?

True I had been around but I finally got the opportunity to join the movie industry in 2015 which is 4 years ago looking back now.

Which is the first movie you took part in and what role did you play in it?

The first movie I was cast in is titled Ariri and it is an Igbo glamour movie. The title translates to ‘’Secret Pains’’ in English and I played the role of the son of the lead character in the movie.

Since you started getting famous, have you ever felt intimidated about your height as a celebrity?

Never have I been intimidated or felt like it. I saw it as an opportunity and my selling point. An old man with a young look. I can be featured as either a child or any younger man in any movie role given to me. 

Knowing that challenges would come in every situation, how do you deal with them?

I just think about it and pray to God about the challenges at hand.

Is it right to say Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme are your models due to the mutual characteristics you share with them?

There is no mincing words about the fact that my role models are Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme. Just imagine how they started and where they are now in their respective careers. They give me the inspiration and zeal to move forward and never to look back on any situation.

If you had to choose a movie star, you will love to act with, who will it be and why?

I would still mention Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme. They are unique in their acting and they take it with all seriousness and passion, no matter the movie they are working on or the role they are playing in it.

Do you see yourself as the next Aki and Pawpaw in this 21st century?

No because as much as I hope for the level of grace and fame they enjoyed with the ground-breaking movie, I want to come up with my own trend and likeness.

Aside from being an actor, what other talent do you hope to explore?

I dance, I model and I love cooking. These are things that I love doing most and I’m very good at them.

Have you anything professionally with any of these other talents?

Not much yet but I have plans concerning them. However, I have danced in a music video.

Which music video is that?

I was featured in the video of MC Galaxy’s song titled ‘OHAA’ and the added detail about that is that I even won the dance challenge he held on Instagram in 2018 after releasing the song.

Why do you refer to yourself or you are referred to as ‘Small Daddy’?

I just wanted to create something different and outside the box and also what people should know me as, which is funny. And when I thought about it for a while, that’s what came to my head and I adopted it as my stage name.

Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?

I wish to see myself in high places owning different businesses and media firms and married too.

Which talent of yours would you say is looking to aid your major breakthrough?

I would say dancing and acting. I am looking at either of them, especially acting because it has brought me to limelight and where I am today.

What advice do you have to give to youths that also want to make it in the entertainment industry?

They should put all their best in what they do and they should be consistent. Never let anyone pull you down or make you feel less of a person.

I don’t care what Davido, my ex, does with his life  –Sophia Momodu

Yesterday, Sophia Momodu, was dragged by a follower who deemed it fit to task her to acquaint herself with a deserving attention from Davido.

The concerned fan had stated that Davido neither like Sophia Momodu’s photos on social media, nor comment on her posts despite that they have a child together.

The Instagram user who commented on a photo Sophia Momodu shared, wrote;

“What are you doing about Davido and Choima? Are you not going to do anything you this girl , after all you have a child with him, when you upload pix Davido won’t like it or comment and you are his Babymama. That is unfair o, do something to it……. Sophia”

Reacting to the comment, Davido’s baby mama wrote:

“Wow lol, I don’t care about whatever my ex is doing with his personal life, he’s a great dad and we’re co-parenting just fine that’s all that matters. We’ve moved on dear and you should try to as well. Nothing good comes from holding on to the past.”

Omotola Jalade slammed for insulting Eniola Badmus

Nollywood superstar, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, made a not so appropriate statement on the red carpet at the just concluded premiere of Your Excellency movie by Mo Abudu.

When asked to give a shout out to Eniola Badmus TV, the mother of four asked…“Oh Eniola Badmus, that’s an actress, isn’t she?”

Well, the response did not go down well with Eniola Badmus and she reacted by posting the video on her Instagram page with the caption:

“I will work harder to the point that I will need no introduction thank you for reminding me to put in more work.”

Omotola’s statement about Eniola has since sparked mixed reactions from her colleagues.

Yvonne Jegede wrote; “Honey you are doing fine. Your hustle is pure. You have gone places, your name opens doors, keep your head up.”

Actor Femi Brainard on the other hand wrote; “Knowing what I know, did not just watch this………my lafta is not of a happy one.”

Ebuka Eze emerges the people’s hero after 13 weeks of stiff contest



Ebuka Eze emerges the people’s hero after 13 weeks of stiff contest

The search for The People’s Hero, a talent hunt show sponsored by Hero Lager Beer, a brand of International Breweries Plc and produced by MTV Base, ended last weekend. The show, aimed at celebrating the richness and the beauty of the Igbo culture through singing, dancing, spoken word and acting, had a jaw-dropping conclusion with beautiful solo performances from each of the eight finalists who gave it their all to win the grand prize.

The only actor among the eight finalists, Ebuka Eze, emerged the winner of the N7 million grand prize and the bragging right to the title of “The People’s Hero”. Justice Alili, a spoken word artiste saved by a wild card last weekend is the first runner up, winning N2 million, while Joel Uzoigwe, a dancer also saved by a wild card is the second runner up, also winning N1 million. The last woman standing, Favour Onyemaechi got a consolation prize of N500,000.

The grand finale was a festival of arts and culture that richly expressed the Igbo tradition. The night began with a dance performance by the energetic Angel Nkwo who did not fail to show passion and creativity in her craft. Toby Okonta, a spoken word artiste, whose performance remarkably improved through the show, followed this. Okonta’s piece on the need for a peaceful co-existence in Nigeria and Africa had the audience screaming for more. And in what became her trademark, Favour Onyemaechi, serenaded the audience and the judges with her melodious voice once again.

All the eight finalists proved their worth, as none of them performed below expectation, and gave the judges a hard time deciding the winners. The show host, Nedu, said it would have been nice to crown all the finalists because they were all Hero-es in their own rights. As the announcements of the winners beckoned, Nedu asked all the finalists to return to the stage. Favour Onyemaechi, was announced as the last woman standing and rewarded with a N500,000 cash prize. There was palpable anxiety in the air as Nedu announced the top three contestants, namely Ebuka Eze, Joel Uzoigwe and Justice Alili. While Joel Uzoigwe was announced as the second runner up, the audience went agog when Ebuka Eze was declared as the winner and the first People’s Hero.

Pleased with the outcome of the show, the Marketing Director, International Breweries Plc, Mrs. Tolulope Adedeji said: “The show has been absolutely phenomenal as it has uncovered talents that never had a platform to showcase their talents to the world”. She added that the show has also celebrated the Igbo culture in a contemporary manner. The Marketing Director also said that the People’s Hero and other contestants would be given further platforms to rise by featuring them in the company’s events henceforth.

For the winner Ebuka Eze, it is a dream come true. He said he had longed for such an opportunity for many years and winning on the first of its kind means a whole lot to him. He commended Hero Lager Beer for showing commitment to its people through creative platforms that help the youth to find their voices, not only in their immediate community, but also all over the world.

Nigerians blast Peter Okoye on twitter, hail half-brother



Nigerians blast Peter Okoye on twitter, hail half-brother

Nigerians have taken to Twitter to drag Peter Okoye, blatantly telling him he has no business in music.

Peter Okoye, the Nigerian music star and former member of the defunct group, Psquare, who is also known as Mr P has said that his decision to become a solo artiste is the best thing that had happened to him.

Okoye took to his Twitter page on Wednesday and tweeted about aging backward since becoming a solo artiste.

“By the way! Did y’all notice since I went solo and became Mr. P I started aging backward…it’s called PEACE OF MIND and drinking more water and minding my business. Can you beat that? More of it biko. Mr. P still trending on Twitter,” he wrote.

He, however, took down the post a few minutes after a twitter user replied him that he is in competition with his half-brother who he’s supposed to learn from.

Reacting to a troll, Peter pointed out that the troll is a broke individual with opinions on other people’s lives.

Paul and Peter Okoye were Nigeria’s biggest musical group up until they fought and went their separate ways. However, that split didn’t transite easily as they called each other out for months.

Here are some reactions to Mr P’s tweets:

@MrOdanz said: “When a Nigerian celebrity has no meaningful response to give after saying something stupid, they proceed to call you broke. And they forget that they became rich because broke fans buy their music, buy tickets for their shows. Btw, Peter (Mr P) is an insecure, childish egghead.”

@ChuksNoble4 said: “Rudeboy was the heart of that duo. His lyrics kept P-Square relevant. Mr P is a dancer, has no business with music.”

@RealMrKay said: “No need to settle anything, we already know. Rude Boy is a singer (He got the musical vibes) while Mr P is Usher Reload – (A Dancer/Choreographer)!”

@EzraelAni; “Rude boy biko. Mr P is still thinking he’s Usher reloaded.”

@Tinniebouncer; Please who is Mr. P and Rudeboy? They both look like Psquare.”

@lemmySong; “Rudeboy is better..Rudeboy is more successful as a solo artist than Mr. P. Rudeboy is the one carrying PSquare all these years. But Rudeboy has no award thus far. Mr. P has with his “Ebano” Just admit you don’t like Mr. P… For me, both are doing well for themselves.”

@TheGeniusJaj; “Rudeboy is focused on his hit songs, releasing an album next year and using his platform to promote his songs, while Mr. P is still talking about their separation, since he can’t release hit songs, the separation issue should help him trend. Lesson: Rudeboy has moved on, Mr. P hasn’t.”

@__Imam: “Those comparing Rudeboy and Mr P, there’s actually no comparison. Rudeboy has always been the better half and he’s still till today. Very humble, mature and less dramatic too.”

@bayonuels; “Two will always be better than one. Imagine if the songs Mr. P and RudeBoy produced individually this year were jointly produced as PSquare, what a year 2019 it would have been for them.”

@ChuksNoble4: “Don’t get me wrong Mr P is a legend. But with a mic? Not so much”

@iam_zim; Rudeboy will always be better. Mr P is forcing the whole shit on himself.”

@sinful_lola: “I remember seeing a music video on Youtube titled Mr P featuring Rudeboy. I just scrolled past lol, two upcoming artistes deceiving themselves. We need Psquare back.”

Three high-profile musical artistes, Zlatan Ibile, Mayorkun and Oritsefemi are billed to perform live at the 20th edition of GOtv Boxing Night, tagged “GOtv Boxing Night Musical Festival”. This was announced by the organisers at a press conference in Lagos on Thursday. The event is slated to hold on 28 December at the Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos.

Addressing journalists, Jenkins Alumona, CEO of Flykite Productions, explained that the artistes have been contracted to perform as a way of sustaining the tradition of giving fans a total entertainment package for the support they continue to give to the event. He noted that the artistes have been carefully selected to meet various musical tastes.

“We have a tradition of making the year-end edition of GOtv Boxing Night a confluence of music and boxing. Two years ago, we had had Falz, Reekado Banks and Small Doctor. Last year, we had Burna Boy, Teni da Entertainer, Wande Coal and Daddy Showkey. This year, we are happy to have Zlatan, Mayorkun and Oritsefemi, who are on top of their game, agree to light up the show. We are fusing music with boxing as a gesture of appreciation to the fans, who have been the pillars of support for this event since it debuted in November 2014. What they deserve is enormous fun and that is what we will give them. It will be a cracking show,” promised Alumona.

GOtv Boxing Night 20 will feature nine bouts, including a World Boxing Federation heavyweight title clash between US-based Nigerian, Onoriode “King Kong” Ehwariemi and Argentina’s Ariel Baracamonte. It will also stage two international title defences featuring top Nigerian boxers, Rilwan “Real One” Oladosu, who fights Ghana’s Ezekiel Annan; and Rilwan “Baby Face” Babatunde, who stakes his title against another Ghanaian, Sanitor Agbenyo; as well as an all-female fight between Cynthia “Bobby Girl” Ogunsemilore and Aminat Yusuf.
