Agbani Derego’s journey to motherhood & how she became the 1st African to win Miss World

Ace beauty queen Agbani Derego has just kicked off his journey to motherhood after welcoming her first child a few days ago. The former Miss World reportedly welcomed a baby boy with her husband, Ishaya Danjuma.

Darego, who became the first and only Miss World from Nigeria, reportedly welcomed her son in far away United Kingdom. Agbani and Ishaya were joined as husband and wife in Morocco in 2017.

How she became the first African to wear the Miss World crown

Talk about a real black barbie and the name Agbani Darego comes to mind. Lights, smiles and loud cheers all made the precious moment the beauty was crowned Miss World in the first year of the millennium, 2001.

It was more than electrifying when the the tall, black, gorgeous lady in green strolled on the stage of Sun City Entertainment Centre in Sun City, South Africa that faithful day to change the course of history. 93 gorgeous women from different counties, ethnic back grounds all competed for a chance to be crowned Miss World. Asides exploring South Africa and all the beauty it had to offer, all 93 ladies showed up with the hope to be the queen, bearing in mind that only one of them could go home with the sapphire, turquoise, and diamonds ridden crown worth a whooping N262.5 million.

Worthy is the head that wears the crown

The Miss World pageant is one of the longest-serving international beauty pageants in the world. It was created in United Kingdom by Eric Morley in 1951. Since inception, the pageant has raised billions in aid of charitable causes. Although the competition boarders around beauty, it’s major goal is to merge beauty with purpose, which is the underlying theme of the world’s oldest running international beauty pageant. Every woman desirous of becoming queen had the objective of serving rather than parading in an expensive crown. It is with such heart they go on to help disabled and underprivileged children, basically being a strong, support system for the voiceless in the society.

How fate decided Agbani Darego’s win

The journey started when Agbani was crowned Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria, ultimately qualifying her to be the country’s representative in the biggest pageant competitions: Miss Universe and Miss world. First in the order of things was the Miss Universe competition held at Bayamon, Puerto Rico in 2001. Surprisingly Darego emerged as the one of the top 10 finalists and made her mark when she showed up for the swimsuit competition wearing a maillot as opposed to a two-piece swimsuit like the rest of the contestants.

That move solidified her place in the top 10 but most likely shielded her from qualifying for top 5. Having gotten that far in the competition, Agbani went with lessons into the Miss World pageant. As all contestants displayed their best selves, the audience already started noting their favourites and she, without effort made the list. As she grew on the audience, she also captured the attention of the judges.

The final question: 

Having battled with 92 other ladies and joining four others namely; Miss Aruba – Zizi Lee, Miss Scotland -Juliet-Jane Horne Miss china PR – Bing Li and Miss Nicaragua – Ligia Cristina Argüello, the ebony queen took her rightful position in the top 5 slot.

Each of the ladies were asked questions that was to determine their fate in the competition and help the judges make a final decision on who truly deserved the crown that evening in Sun City Entertainment centre. Agbani was asked:

“In these men’s world, what do you think you can change which men cannot?” She replied,“First of all I entered Miss World competition because I know it is a very charitable organization. In these men’s world If there’s anything I can do and be is to help the less privileged in the society because I really really want to give them as much help I can give. I love helping the needy at whole times and have a great love for humanity that has helped me and promised me to be the best I can be and to help everyone in need.”

 

Nollywood actor Adeniyi Akanni blames female fans for sexual harassment

Every industry has its challenges and struggles ranging to enmity to sexual harassment. The Nollywood movie industry has been faced with the latter and a lot of scandals have risen from it, marriages have been destroyed and homes have suffered breakdown.

A crossover actor and movie producer, Adeniyi Akanni, has revealed that female fans are the worst when it comes to sexual harassment of entertainers in the country. He said that the threat of sexual harassment of female actresses in the movie industry cannot be compared to what the male actors go through in the hands of crazy female fans in the society.

He noted that female fans were becoming more daring when it came to sexual harassment of male entertainers. ”For the male actors, sexual harassment happens most especially when you are out there in the public with people day to day. I am a regular victim of sexual harassment from females. They are just too daring. Yes, female fans these days are just so daring.”

The actor who hit the movie spotlight in 2016, with his first movie production, ‘Scandal’, explained that he had been sexually harassed by female fans several times.

”Let me use myself as an instance. I’ve met crazy female fans who harassed me sexually and what almost all of them actually want is just my body. The funniest thing is that some will even trick to you to harass you. For example, there was a day I was sexually harassed by a model who had met me for the first time. I had offered a handshake and she said ‘hey fine dude there is no way I am not going to hug you’ and then she suddenly came closer, dragged me to herself and pressed her boobs against my chest. I felt so sad, deeply sad after the encounter, but I continued with the activities of the day unhappy.

”There was another case while I was dining with friends at a dinner. At the party, a female fan approached me and made a scene by yelling at me and kissing me violently. I’m not afraid to say this, because I think she should be ashamed of herself. This woman, who I don’t even know,  recognized me (as an actor) and started screaming, going crazy. She ran to where I was seated and started kissing me and I had to free myself from her grip and politely cautioned her.”

He blamed the threat of sexual harassment of movie producers by female actors to unstable financial status of those involved in the act, and the craze to hit limelight within the shortest possible time.

“That is why it is advisable for the female actors to shoot their own movies and get other brilliant actors to feature in it and it would boost their career in the movie industry. And for the male actors, I don’t think there’s a way out; in most cases most male actors enjoy sexual harassment by female fans, but I totally dislike it.”

3 reasons why Wizkid loves Zion and Jada Pollock more than his other sons and baby mamas

It’s glaring that ace singer Wizkid loves his last baby mama, Jada Pollock and son Zion as the singer always steals quality time from his busy schedule to show them off in his various social media handles.

Wizkid’s domestic affairs have been in the news recently with his first and second baby mamas accusing of parental neglect.

While accusations have been strong, the public cannot deny that Wizkid has been very involved in the life of his third son Zion and his mother Jada Pollock who also doubles as his manager.

This has got people wondering why Wizkid is in constant contact with Jada and Zion and absent in the lives of his first two songs according to the accusations.

Here are three reasons why we believe Wizkid is Team Zion.

1. He Loves Them

Maybe Wizkid has found love with Jada Pollock and he is willing to make this relationship work. After being a bachelor for so long, maybe Jada is the one for him. Also, this time around Wizkid might just want to be more present in the life of his third son because of the love he has for him and his mother. It is obvious that Wizkid loves his third son and is down with this third baby mama.

2. Turning a new leaf

Why is Wizkid showing love to Zion, his third son? Maybe Wizkid has decided to turn a new leaf and be a a better father. The relationships with his first two baby mamas are complicated and might take a while for it to untangle. For now it seems his relationship with Jada is the smoothest of all so he is using it as an advantage to be with Zion.

3. Business affiliation

Jada Pollock’s relationship apparently started on a business note with Wizkid before it blossomed into a relationship that led to them having a child together. However, that relationship will continue to exist as long as Wizkid remains loyal and stays committed to the care of their son.

According to The Daily Star and West London Living they referred to Jada Pollock as a highly acclaimed image guru. We all know what that means, Jada Pollock knows how to clean the dirt of celebrities and make them look good in the public eye. His relationship with Jada Pollock will not just bring in more business deals but make him remain an “icon” in the eyes of many.

Yoruba Demons: Who Will Win The Agbada Challenge At Ayo Makun’s Movie Premiere ?

Popular Nigerian comedian, Ayo Makun widely known as “AY”  is up to his antics again and this time he has gotten everyone on their toes. He has decided to spice up his latest movie, the “Merry men: Yoruba demons” movie premiere with the challenge to get more viewers interested in the movie.

The challenge which tagged “the Agbada challenge” was released on the comedian’s social media handle on Thursday. Some Nigerian celebrities have been called to an Agbada challenge by former Big Brother Naija Housemate, Alex, who would be hosting the premiere of the movie. Those lined up for the challenge include Nollywood actors, Ramsey Nouah, Falz, Jim Iyke, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Tobi Bakre and TV Host, Ebuka amongst others not leaving out AY himself.

However, famed for his recent fashion statement, Ebuka, who hosted the last two editions of the Big Brother Naija, is also expected to put on a performance on Sunday. The premiere takes place on Sunday, September 23, 2018 at Imax Cinema, Lekki, Lagos and will be in cinemas from September 28, 2018.

Posting pictures of Jim Iyke wearing Agbada on Instagram and commenting on the challenge, AY wrote, “@ebuka his name is @jim.iyke aka Nalz (the life of the Party). The whole world knows that he is born for the fight that you picked with #AgbadaChallenge. The Agbada you see in here is what he wears to bed. BE WARNED against Sunday! #MerryMen #YorubaDemons in Cinemas from September 28th @seyivodi.”

And in another post showing photos of RMD, the comedian wrote, “Who else goes to the office like this? @tobibakre! Baba has been doing this long before you were conceived and deceived into the #AgbadaChallenge trap by @ebuka . His name is @mofedamijo, Father to #Merrymen. He awaits your apologies sent through your dad, first thing on Monday morning… #cantwaitforsunday.”

The Agbada challenge has been noted by most social media handlers to be one of a fashion traffic as well as a trending topic which will be so much fun as Nigerians anticipate the winner. Who will slay more on the Agbada challenge and who will slay less? This is what Nigerians hope to see on the 23rd of September, 2018 which is the day for the Merry Men premiere.

Tonto Dike puts massive hidden tattoos on display as she decorates Dino Melaye (Photos)

Nollywood actress Tonto Dike revealed the huge tattoos crested on her back while decorating Dino Melaye.

The Senator representing Kogi West senatorial district shared the photos of the controversial Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh decorating him as the most outstanding Lawmaker of the Year Award on his Instagram page.

He wrote; “Actress Tonto Dike decorated me as The Most outstanding Lawmaker of the Year at The Nigerian Goodwill Ambassador Award 2018”

But what really caught our attention is the massive tattoos on the actress’ back which was revealed by the show-back top she wore during the award presentation.

See more pictures below;

Tonto Dikeh, is a Nigerian actress, singer, and philanthropist. Dikeh hails from Rivers State and is from Ikwerre, a subgroup of the Igbo tribe.

She featured in a movie titled Dirty Secret which generated controversy amongst Nigerians because the movie contained numerous adult scenes which at then was quite alien in the Nigerian movie industry. While some criticised her role for being untraditional and un-African, others said that Dikeh was merely being professional.

After enjoying acting several movies, Dikeh decided to try her hand in music though she had once featured in a music video owned by Amaco investments where she and Patience Ozokwor were called to mime the song. She made her debut by releasing singles ‘Hi’ and ‘Itz Ova’ feat Snypa. While many lauded her effort, the songs were trailed by controversy as critics especially questioned her vocal ability. Doubts were raised on whether her decision to try her hands on music was for the best. On June 13, 2014, Pop star D’banj, unveiled Dikeh under the artistes with his record label DB Records’ LEE family. She announced her departure from DB records in March 2015.

D fact that no one understands u does not make you an artist 😀
This must be fake Opetodolapo cause
a sharp tongue does not mean you have a keen mind as your IQ is certainly lower than your shoe size, just in case this is d real person. I just want to ask, are you really this flagitious & quisquilian? What language are u speaking cause it sounds like bullshit, referring to ma 2 lovelies, Where were you in d late 90s when I started staring in Zeb Ejiro’s Ripples 😃 I am a mom of 3, Motherhood is my biggest Achievement 🙏🏽 🙌🏾. I see d Fuck-up Fairy left messages in my DM😃. I can’t be an Actress forever na😃. U think life did not treat me well? I am a cancer survivor, many have died & are still dying 😢. I cannot thank God enough 🙏🏽. I am Alive!!!!!! U honestly should have been born in d Dark Ages cause I see a lot of Darkness in your tone, gosh, U sure look terrible in d light!

Image result for ope dolapo

How exactly do you guide d younger ones? By scornfully shaming them? Most Baby Mamas are now d best loved wives!! So this advice to them must have been an advice to U! Most got into that situation by mistake, lack of advice & direction but an innocent child is involved, so you advice by abuse?

Image result for ope dolapo

Hey don’t let your mind wonder- it’s far too small to be let out on its own, it’s truly me, Victoria Inyama 🙋🏼‍♀️ Am I a Baby Mama? Yes! My children are my babies! May God bless all d women that are praying for babies.
Your messages to me portrays U as seemingly cretin to be honest. U want to help me get help with child support, as a British police officer or with your remarkable benefits of bump & grind😂 U clearly have delusions of adequacy.

Image result for ope dolapo

U have all d virtues that majority of good people in your society dislike & no vice that they admire!! Listen to d cry of your people & help reduce Police Brutality & injustices. Stop sitting on your high horse, U sit in your supposedly impressive office looking like an envelope without any address on it.
I apologise for making you sleepless but I was just being Fearlessly honest. I am too far away for you to send your machineries to hurt me cause tone speak SARS

Elie Wiesel” ‘We must always take sides- Neutrality helps d Oppressor-Never d Victim- Silence Encourages d Tormentor- Never d Tormented ‘
Apart from my 1st degree at D Great University of Lagos Akoka, I did a full 3yrs Acting & Drama performance course in Identity Drama School, Hackney, London. Numerous short courses & have certifications on Drugs & Substance Abuse, Counselling & Mental Health Talking Therapy, I am currently a final yr student of D University of East London majoring in Psychosocial Studies, let me tutor you a bit ma’am.

Psychosocial Studies explores new ways of researching d relationship between individuals & their Society….. psychologically managing individuals in d context of d combined influence that psychological factors & d surrounding social environment have on their physical & mental wellness & their ability to function. This knowledge empowers me to openly, fearlessly without bias defend where necessary & to whom it concerns. So on d contrary I love people & use humanist reasoning in my opinions. Do u know how it feels to be pregnant? Have u experienced d pain of child birth, then with d added stress & torture of being rejected by one who once professed love? Have you ever genuinely been in love especially young love?

U have a voice but you use it ridicule & oppress.
U claim u initiated #entertainmentmeetsecurity# I read on blogs how your police & Sars officers constantly kill & maimed some entertainers & hundreds of young people U are supposedly mentoring. How many of those officers have been punished?? Do u want to be mentoring them in their graves??? I can only explain it to U, I cannot understand it for U, U consistently set low expectations & still fail to achieve them.
D role of a Police PRO in a summery is communicating with a verity of audiences, particularly d media using management oriented, proactive techniques that are consistent with established public relations models thereby performing a wide array of traditional relations activities that will be instrumental in moving law enforcement from a closed to a more open effective system of communication, engagement & inclusion.

And so as this is your last message, I there-say D police force may not be d best for now but hopefully it can improve…….. soon….. d only constant thing in life is change and Nigerians are changing…. aware of sense / nonsense but hey don’t think about it, it may sprain your brain. U claim U want to make me relevant 😂 where? 😂 U have a mechanical mind & your agro towards my comment on instablog made u forget to wind it up this morning 🙃 Pls stop being a blueprint to build an idiot, U too beautiful for that. I am happy & blessed as I am but U won’t understand, misery floats like oil on fresh water 😀 if I wanted relevance I would climb up your ego & jump on your IQ but that’s too easy.

U understand I am a product of a bitter marriage ….that’s my past, it’s not a life sentence and alas,…….I pray u experience that bitterness too…… I hope you are married with children cause I pray you taste that side of life……and I noticed u just sent me laughing emojis, we both doing exactly d same thing just your laughter gene pool could use a little chlorine.

I live in a sane society & I’m guided by certain laws. I commented on a post on insta blog, I didn’t tag you, I just made a non biased comment but U charge at me at whatever time, 😂 U don’t scare me…. I swear down, u are basically being tolerated but it’s not to late to change…… 2019? Elections.. new administration loading.
Try & sleep well tonight cause sleeplessness causes psychological hallucinations which could lead to buncombe statements. Good night & God bless you……… And ermmmm did I also mention that u look good in uniform. God bless Nigeria

 

Dolapo Badmus who reacted to call out posts from Victoria Inyama wrote;

I can’t stop laughing now, when some people think they can speak English and only one response they have gone to obahiagbon for research….😁😁😁 I’m done and dusted with that! Please note blood flows in public office holders too, everyone deserves to be respected regardless of positions😏 positive vibes only because it’s Friday!
