My husband being away for 99 days was harder than I thought –Wife of BBnaija’s Mike



My husband being away for 99 days was harder than I thought –Wife of BBnaija’s Mike

Maybe not as much as Tacha or Khafi but Mike Olayemi Edwards also made a solid impression on many people during the recently-concluded TV fourth edition of reality show, Big Brother Naija. In this interview with ADEDAYO ODULAJA, Mike’s wife, Perris Shakes Drayton, who is also a British Olympian athlete and TV personality, said she sees herself as a Nigerian being married to Mike and going all the way to emerge 1st runner-up.



Mike easily won the hearts of many Nigerians in the Big Brother Naija house. What were your thoughts when he was leaving for the Big Brother Naija?

It was really hard that I wasn’t going to see my husband for 99 days and I didn’t even realise he made it into the house and I was like, wow, this is going to be harder than I thought. A long time without my husband and we were newly married.

When did you guys get married?

We got married May 23 this year and three weeks after then my husband travelled to Nigeria and he had to stay in the Big Brother House for 99 days. Although many have celebrated Mike for his conduct in the house, I never thought anything different would happen at any point.

Is it for true that you didn’t feel threatened at any time throughout his stay in the house?

I didn’t feel threatened; I couldn’t have felt that way because I know him and the kind of person he is.

Not even when some of the guys did some things or dressed in certain ways?

Yes, there was no such thing as a threat or thinking that he could be tempted but I did see some things and I felt ‘Huh, what’s going on here?’ But then I trust my husband, he is a good looking young man but I trust him absolutely.

You guys are even talking about whatever happened inside the Big Brother house. I am talking about outside the house where I’ve had more of that. I have seen people trying to claim my husband and I will be like ‘no, no, no I can’t share, Mike belongs to me,’ Perry. Okay.

But I know it was all love because my husband demonstrated being a real man, he did have some funny expressions on his face sometimes but it didn’t happen beyond that point and I am so proud of my husband.

In all, what are the values you cherish most about him beyond what we have seen?

Mike is such a gentleman. The reason I fell in love with him is because he was so much about me, he opens doors for me. You know, that is a big deal for me. I have never had anyone do that for me before because I was an independent woman and I was doing everything myself. So with him, I had to kind of step back and allow my heart feel something.

Mike is such a nice guy, he takes care of me and he will always support anything I do, he just wants to see that I’m happy. And sometimes he cooks for me, he loves cooking a lot and he sometimes clean the house; he is really a good guy and I trust him enough to know there will be.

Now that he is talking about staying in Nigeria, how are you going to cope with that?

I am going to be around much because I understand he wants to grow his business here. I am of Jamaican background but I have Nigerian friends in the UK so this culture is nothing new to me. I have seen it, I know it and I love the music, the people and I am Nigerian now because my husband is from here.

We talked about his coming and everything because no matter what I am doing, he has got my back and whatever I am doing, I’ve got his back also and what we agreed when he wanted to go in is for him to be himself. And I am not surprised that people are showing him love like this because he can go anywhere and be part of any crowd, black or white, it doesn’t matter and people would love you if they would.

My husband wants to stay here, he would surely be getting a place and since that is the case I will be here by his side many times even though I have a life in the UK.

The guy who made the expensive ring he gave you also made for music star, Davido. So what would you say is the most expensive thing he has bought for you?

My dream car is a G Wagon, it’s funny but my husband knows. But then it is not even about the most expensive gift or not. I am a woman of expensive taste, I can’t buy my stuff myself, I don’t expect my husband to treat me to expensive things. I am rest assured he is going to help me grow and that will inspire me to have my own brand like he does. That is it for me, to have my own because I am a businesswoman like my husband.

According to him, Hero Lager beer has always claimed there is a hero in everyone and what happened in Owerri just confirmed Hero’s claim. He said this explained why the brand was providing platforms to enable Nigerian youths to bring forth their best. He reiterated his confidence that whoever emerged ‘The People’s Hero’ would indeed be a huge performer in the entertainment industry.

How I benefitted from herbal medicine during pregnancy –Toyin Aimakhu



How I benefitted from herbal medicine during pregnancy –Toyin Aimakhu

Popular actress and new mum, Toyin Aimakhu, now known as Toyin Abraham, recently came out to show her approval for the use of traditional herbs in helping women with fertility problems have children of their own. The movie star recently shared a lengthy video post on her Instagram page in which she approached the subject of fertility in women, and how she is a big benefactor of the goodness that stems from using traditional medicine. Abraham explained the humbling experience she went through while she was seeking the fruit of the womb, adding that her personal research into the matter made her realise that there were several other women like her. The movie star who recently welcomed her first baby disclosed that she was very skeptical when she was introduced to traditional remedies until the success stories of other child-seeking women motivated her to believe. “When I was first introduced to traditional remedies, I was the biggest skeptic, but after seeing the proofs in other women, I had no choice but to believe, and I am glad I did,” her post reads in part.

You may recall that after the news of her pregnancy broke, Nollywood actress and colleague, Liz Anjorin, called Abraham out on social media, with allegations that she never put to bed in a private hospital like she made people believe. According to Anjorin, the new mum delivered her baby in a traditional medicine home.

Man who’s sold records for 50 yrs: How Gov. Fayemi bought Plasma TV for me



Man who’s sold records for 50 yrs: How Gov. Fayemi bought Plasma TV for me



 Pa Abayomi Zacheus, aka Yankee Records, is a popular record dealer based in Ado Ekiti, capital city of Ekiti State. In this interview, the 71 – year old man, based on his experience in the business for over 5 decades spoke with ADEWUMI ADEMIJU on state of recording business now, compared to what was obtained in the past



What makes selling records so lucrative and exciting that you have done it for 50 years?


I just love music. During Christmas i always rent music engine to play music before I started. Originally, I am a watch and bicycle repairer, as far back as 1968. Indigenous people like Papa Abiara and his rival popularly known then as “Kilo fa mess” who were in music business in Ekiti then inspired me, so I developed a sustained interest.


Looking back, which notable Nigerian leaders have you had an encounter with perhaps based on stopping by to buy or express their love for any musician?


Among the leaders I can vividly remember now that I have had encounter with are Governors Ayodele Fayose and Kayode Fayemi. They do patronise me.



Which notables events come to mind if you look back to the 5 decades you have been selling records?


At a time I had set back in the business. Around 1998, I abandoned the business and travelled to the North in Kaduna State to engage in commercial driving, but no improvement, I came back home to continue with the record business .


Based on your interactions with customers over the years, which musician(s) is most loved by Ekiti people and why?


In Ekiti, they love musicians like late Ajoyemi, Ishola Adepoju, then later Elemure Ogunyemi and Dele Maltina. Ekiti love those musicians because they sang in real Ekiti dialects .


People still buy their records up till date.


Of the notable musicians in Yorubaland including those from Ekiti/Ondo, have you had encounter with any?


I have had encounter with late Orlando Owoh. Indigenous musicians in Ekiti do come to visit me. I am like a father to them.


They sing my praise me in their records.


Is any of your children showing the willingness to follow in your footsteps?


There are some of them who have interest, but they haven’t started on their own ,they have acquired the experience, I do send them outside the state to buy goods for me.


How did you become a records seller?


I said earlier I have interest in music. The genuine interest for music pushed me to recording business.



Have you had to change location at any time or due to any reason?


From the outset I have been at Old Garage, in Ado Ekiti. I have never had any cause to change my location. I have ever been in Old Garage in Ado Ekiti.


Either for good or bad, has any socio-political and economic event left an impact on your trade through the years?


There was a time I needed Plasma TV. I didn’t have. I informed Governor Kayode Fayemi during his first term and surprisingly his deputy then Professor Modupe Adelabu bought the plasma and brought it to my shop at Old Garage.


That is what is still in my shop till now.


Compared to the booming period of the 80s and 90s, how would you assess this period of hip hop compared to the era of Sunny Ade, Kollington Ayinla, Ebenezer Obey and others?



During the time, records of Ebenezer Obey and King Sunny Ade were selling fast and even up till now. Music that time is better than now.


The musicians then sing didactic songs and that’s why they are still evergreen. Many old people nowadays do not listen to hip-hop they take it as frivolous.


If you can still recollect, who did the people of Ekiti choose to align with during the era of feuds between Ayinla Omowura and Haruna Ishola and also during that of Sikiru Ayinde Barrister and Kollington Ayinla?


In Ekiti State, they love Apala songs but unfortunately, Ayinla Omowura died when his stars were booming in the state. In the case of Fuji music then, Ekiti loves Kollington Ayinla, they consider his music more entertaining than the other.


Is there anything you wish government could do for you or your peers in the business?


We would be glad if the government in Ekiti State can help us to establish recording studio in the state to save us from taking our recording outside.


It will save us from traveling to Lagos or Ibadan all the time.


Apart from helping recording business in the state, such esthablishmen will create jobs in a way and also help youth talent discovery for possible guide and nurture.


How did the relocation of major record label in the 80s and 90s affect your trade?


During that time, they gave out records to us to sell and later pay back ,but now, they are based in their different states. I do go or send people to buy records for me from any of them.

Reactions Trail BBNaija’s Frodd on Twitter over relationship with Esther



Reactions Trail BBNaija’s Frodd on Twitter over relationship with Esther

Bi g Brother Naija 2019 ex-housemate, Frodd, granted an interview recently and the comments he made about his relationship with Esther has sent Twitter into a frenzy. During the last edition of Big Brother Naija, two contestants who drew so much attention to viewers were Frodd and Esther because of their interesting relationship. Well, in a recent interview with Wazobia FM, Frodd was asked about his relationship with Esther and gave a very shocking response.



A c – cording to him, he won’t be having time for that relationship, for now, rather he wants to try and make milk out all that he can and make his fans happy. Since the video from that interview made it to the public domain, Twitter has been awash with a lot of people dragging Frodd for making that statement. So guys, here is how Twitter is reacting to Frodd’s latest interview: Chukwuemeka Okoye (Frodd) @ callme_frodd2 “Family, I can never discredit Esther or pretend that we don’t have a unique friendship. What I meant was, we are currently busy trying to put our different homes together while attending all these interviews.


We are amazing and have been in touch.” See some of the reactions below Constance Simon@Constan19487513 says: “FroddNation doesn’t want Esther, she almost ruined your chances of winning, if not for our prayers, fasting and everything. We get insulted, abused on the street…we decided to go with the flow knowing you would realise she is a mistake once you are out. Go with your head.” Frodd’s Akaya @AKHLCEEC: Esther didn’t claim Frodd in her interviews. Frodd isn’t claiming her in his interviews either.


People that are upset just want Frodd to remain a mumu for her, especially her fans. #BBNaija Chigirl @Brenda00114: “Can you stop dragging Esther and her fans to this mess?


How can you write sensible on the first line then end your tweet trolling. This is how dragging from both teams starts put your tweets in order before posting it if you are all about positivity.”
