Why I was committed to my wife in BBNaija –Mike Edwards
Mike Olayemi Edwards, the Big Brother Naija season 4 first runner-up is a charming young man who won the hearts of Nigerians with his character and comportment while in the house, even as a married man. Mike, who is a British high jumper, tells EDWIN USOBOH his winning streaks and plans for the future
Was it the fear of your wife that made you celibate or you are naturally self-controlled around women?
I’m a strong man. I didn’t show weakness. I didn’t expect less from myself. It’s just normal for me. Before I even said ‘I do’ to my wife, I made a commitment to myself to be faithful and I expected nothing less from my girl. To remain in the house for 99 days, I made a commitment to myself to remain faithful.
Where you ever tempted by any of the women in the house?
Do you have plans to relocate to Nigeria?
Yes, I talked to my wife about it and we’re just taking it day by day. We are making plans towards that. We are still discussing on the arrangements but right now, we’re taking it all in day by day.
What made you decide to be part of Big Brother Naija?
It is one of the greatest platforms in the world to me. I saw it as a challenge, the fear of the unknown was more attractive to because of what I wanted to do. I wanted to try something different and it ended up being a great opportunity. I wanted to challenge myself beyond my boundaries. So it ended up being a great opportunity and I’ll never regret it.
What do you think worked for you to get the second position this season?
You cannot fake realness. I knew I should just be myself and that’s the only thing I know how to be. I cannot be anybody else apart from myself. I feel I can go through ups and downs and still find a way of being me. Also, being an athlete has shown me that already; I didn’t have any other strategy than just to be myself. I’m very confident being myself. Consistency is always key for me and believing in the process, being consistent and having a good time and believing I am walking out a winner and it didn’t fail me; I walked out a winner!
Did you make any emotional sacrifices in the house?
Of course yes, that is being disconnected with my wife. It was draining at times.
Aside your career as an athlete and sporting talent, which side of entertainment would you like to explore?
Oh, I’m open to anything coming my way right now. At this stage, it’s not so much of what I’m doing; it’s about trusting in the process. What I’m focusing on now is to build a strong foundation with my team and knowing which direction to focus on.
You spoke much of your cigar venture while in the house. Tell us more about it?
Yeah, that’s my company, Aireyys.com; it’s almost five years now. It’s an evolution of me as a young entrepreneur. It’s not something I’m taking lightly, I’m not rushing it. It’s something I want to pass forward to the next generation so they wouldn’t have to start from the bare minimum that I had to. I want to keep a legacy. So right now, I’m just enjoying the victory I had in Big Brother Naija.
Aireyys is an extension of me. I always saw myself as a brand. I like old school and the old world and that’s what I wanted to bring back. It’s not for everyone; it’s a distinguished taste.
A lot of young folks look up to you. What’s the immediate thing you will do for them?
It’s uplifting for you to say that. For me to celebrate someone else’s success is a way of paving way for my own success. That kind of experience I’m so grateful to be role model to a lot of young folks. So all I can do is to continue to change their mindset. I’m not trying to change their world but to change their mind positively.
As a matter of fact, I take people’s success as mine and their failings as mine as well because we are here to support one another. So, I can’t afford to let them down. Their support got me to this point. I want to keep the fan base intact and keep entertaining Africa with my gifts, passion and drive. I hope that we would have interesting stories to tell at the end of it all. I am grateful to the people and I like the fact that they look up to me as their role model.
Are you happy to be back in Nigeria?
Yeah, I feel very happy to be back home, I feel stronger than ever. So I’m going to make the best of this opportunity. That’s the best way you can describe it. I’m just out now and everything is still so surreal.
A lot of people have commended your manners while in the house. If you were not married, would you have also mingled like others?
If I wasn’t married, I wouldn’t even be in the house. I commend the other guys who went into the house unmarried because they really proved themselves and gave the audience a piece of themselves and still didn’t get distracted by the women that were in the house. So I salute them as well.
How were you able to handle the negativity around Tacha while in the house?
Well, it’s all over now. We are all out and we are good together. It’s a family reunion now. I appreciate every housemate in their own unique way. I’m out now to reflect and appreciate all the supports that helped me to remain in the house for the 99 days. That’s what’s most important to me right now because without them, I wouldn’t be here.
Are you disappointed that you didn’t win?
No, absolutely not. Stepping into the house was a win for me. Anything else was bonus. So I was felt I was having the best of my life. I kept reminding myself of that and that’s why it was easy for me. Ultimately, I knew we’re all winners.
Before entering the house, did you discuss about self-control with your wife?
If I didn’t have the consent of my wife I wouldn’t have partaken in the show. I’m a married man. I don’t need to discuss things that don’t need to be explained. I know what my responsibility is. That’s the kind of relationship I have with my wife.
Where there times you wished the show will end?
Yeah, I felt that especially not seeing members of my family. I was like, “Biggie, won’t you allow us to see our family members all of these 99 days?” It was rough but I had to just focus on the finish line.
Who was running the business while you were in the house?
It was my wife and my team. It’s not something I plan on rushing.
And what’s the future for your career as an athlete like?
I represented Nigeria at the Commonwealth Games in Australia and the African Senior Athletics Championship in Asaba in 2018. So, right now my focus is to set up my future with my family, so, that’s my priority right now. Yeah, I will love to represent Nigeria in future sports and have done that before I went into the house and opportunities are not over, it’s just starting.
What’s the main thing you will take away from the show?
That will be never to take things too serious. Have an open heart; enjoy the moment because you never know when you are going home, literally.
Babatunde Fowler successfully sails the storm
abatunde Fowler has been so privileged that he moved from being the Chairman of Lagos Inland Revenue Service to become the nation’s tax master as the Chairman of Federal Inland Revenue Service. While some will readily argue his visibility and relevance has been largely on the influence of his god father, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, one fact that will however continue to come up is that, the man at every given assignment has proven to be a master of his game by bringing forth impressive results.
Meanwhile, as impressive and great his career may have been, Fowler has not been able to escape the proverbial unease that lies with the head that wears the crown as he’s at different times battled with all sorts. Going by events that have unfolded, it has actually not been a roller coaster for Fowler in the past couple of weeks as he’s had to deal with one issue or the other. Although, pundits are of the view there are forces who are bent on seeing Fowler exit his position as the chief tax master, hence, all sorts of salvo are being fired. But like one who seems to have envisioned all that will happen, Fowler doesn’t look like one who is likely to fall like a badly packed card as he’s been able to sail through the storm all in his favour.
The first kite flied was that of a purported query from an aide of the President allegedly asking him to explain shortage in revenue. Fowler survived this when the presidency made a categorical statement that doused rising tension. Also, a newspaper had alleged he handed about 90 billion naira to the Vice President in a shady manner. This, he also came out clean following the retraction and apology made by the newspaper company. For now, no one can say what battle will be brought his way tomorrow but as at the time of filing in this report, a Federal High Court in Kano had ruled in favour of Fowler by striking out a suit challenging his Fowler’s tenure as the Chairman of Federal Inland Revenue Service. It is believed in some quarters the suit filed against Fowler may have an option considered following all hatched ways to get him out of office that failed.
Ibe Kachikwu faces reality
ormer Minister of Petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu, may have come to terms with reality of life that says success has many children and failure is an orphan. As the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources with unfettered access to NNPC and its vast resources, Kachikwu was the beautiful bride whose attention was coveted by those who found him useful. They flattered him from midnight to high noon, professing undying vows of friendship. They milked their association for all it was worth, smiling to the bank with big bucks raked in from reflected reputation.
At one time there were hopes that the former president of the Organization of Oil Exporting Countries (OPEC) had done enough to impress the President and would make the shortlist of returnee ministers. Alas, it was not to be. His friends in name only, having already packed their bags in anticipation of such an eventuality, didn’t even say goodbye before zooming out of his life at high speed. Now, the once cynosure of all eyes has become like a beautiful flower wasting its sweetness on the desert air.
Miss-K rules red carpet at Nollywood UK film festival
ulti award winner, artist, supermodel, entrepreneur and humanitarian, Miss-K, who was recently awarded an Honourary Award as 1 of 100 most influential women in the world on International Women’s Day, made a fashion statement wearing the perfect red carpet look when attending the second edition of the UK Nollywood Film Festival, which took place on Saturday, 5th of October 2019, in London.
The UK Nollywood Film Festival (UKNFF), which has first been instigated back in 2018, by the President of The Nollywood Guild Award, Dr. Malcolm Benson, was a success. The UKNFF has been an official partner to the ‘Kreative Kick’ Youth Summit, which has been organized by Miss-K herself, this past August, on International Youth Day.
In the spirit of marking her attendance, Miss-K arrived glowing in a show stopping outfit, with the perfect touch of Royal Blue, making her arrival known when stepping on to the red carpet at UKNFF.

Different ways to wear shades of green
reen is a colour of nature, and therefore many people wear it exclusively to show off their inner personality. Green colour it’s an ideal hue to wear from day to evening events.
Granted, green is not the new black as it is quite tricky to style and match with other clothing hues but if you put a little bit effort, you will nail it and turn this colour into your fashion statement of 2019.
The best combination of your dark green dress can be paired with gold, starting from accessories, jewelry or embroideries.
All green shades can be ideally styled with earth shade colours, including brown, sandy, grey, etc.
If your frock features prints of other colour shades, then I recommend adding accessories that are the same colour as the print’s dominant hue. If your dress is totally green, then it’s better to choose accessories in the same style and shade.
Here are some surprising ways to incorporate a green shade this season and freshen up your existing wardrobe.
Why many call Monday Nwajiri, ‘the lion’
onday Nwajiri Moon is the presiding pastor of World Conqueror Evangelical Ministries. He is currently being regarded as one of the fast growing firebrand pastors in Nigeria that has the leadership etiquette to lead this generation of young ministers of God.
The Abia State-born clergyman started his Ministry from scratch where nobody ever envisaged that one day he would be where he is today. Also known as ‘The Lion’, Nwajiri, who started his ministerial assignment in his hometown, had to relocate to Lagos based on instruction from God.
The relocation of his ministry was not a mistake but for a divine purpose to be fulfilled in his life, and this has led many religious foes who saw the progress of God in his life to believe in his calling, thereby giving their life to Christ.
Monday Nwajiri aka the Moon is a man of many parts who does not only preaches on the pulpit alone but also believes in raising young people for future leadership. He has a large crowd of fellowship in his ordained church and ready to put smile on everybody that runs with his vision.
Speaking briefly with Celeb Lounge, the happy husband and proud father of three, lambasted people who worship money, “I am from the part of the world where anyone that sees little money in their hand will want everyone to bow to them, not knowing that money can never make anyone rich. You can still have money and be poor”.
He recalled a funny experience he once had during his growing up days. “I remember in a church I once served, I happen to be the leader of service. I introduced a brother to come forward for his testimony, the senior pastor picked offence and asked me to go back and re-introduced the brother in a special way because he gives money to the church. We pastors are now worshipping big men that have money in the church and even go as far as reserving front seats for them, thereby demoralising other true worshippers and making them feel as if God is against them because they don’t have money. No special seat, No special person. Everybody is equal in the presence of God. I owe nobody apology” He declared.
I didn’t know our son was born blind untilåafter 4 months –Cobhams Asuquo’s wife
lind singer, Cobhams Asuquo’s wife, Ojuolape, has opened up about raising a visually-impaired son. While speaking in a recent interview, Ojuolape revealed that she didn’t know her son was visually-impaired until about four months after his birth. According to her, everything was fine as she married her husband; Cobhams in 2010 and she took in and welcomed her first child in November 2011. She stated that the pregnancy was smooth and the delivery took only about 45 minutes.
However, four months after the birth of her son, the doctor discovered that he was visually impaired.
She said: “So, I got married and we got pregnant. My pregnancy was fantastic; I didn’t even know I was pregnant, found out I was pregnant, still wasn’t sure I was pregnant because I didn’t have any symptoms. After the ‘smooth’ pregnancy and an even smoother delivery that happened in ‘less than 45 minutes’, my baby was checked abroad and we were told he is OK. Everything was so smooth. And then fast forward to four months after my son was born and the doctor was like ‘his eyes are not following’ and I was like, ‘What do you mean he’s not following?’ And then suddenly, as a mother, your heart just starts palpitating. After multiple tests abroad and in Nigeria, it was then discovered that the little one was born visually impaired.” She recounted.
The young boy, David, 7, who is growing really fast has however taken over from his father and is a brilliant pianist.
The multi-talented singer, songwriter and producer, Cobhams Azuquo, was also born blind like his son and has proved time and again that his lack of vision is not an obstacle.
With a powerful and sonorous voice, Cobhams Azuquo is the CEO of CAMP, Cobhams Asuquo Music Productions currently representing himself, Bez Idakula and Stan Iyke. Asuquo was also responsible for singer, Aşa’s highly acclaimed international album ‘ASA’ and has mentored many artistes as a producer and writer.
