Speaking in a recent interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, the actress disclosed the circumstances that led to their union hitting the rocks.

According to her, a failed marriage is not the tragedy people make it out to be. Not every marriage is ordained by God. She also reminisced how she had fought and prayed hard right to the end of the marriage and how she knew in her heart that she did her best.

A Nigerian man has taken to Twitter to share why it isn’t a big deal that Nigerian Afropop star, Davido hasn’t won a grammy.
According to the tweep, winning a grammy is not a yardstick for success as it’s only an award. He buttressed his point by liking Davido to other great music stars who haven’t been honoured with the award but yet, are at the very top of their games.
He then asks that people should stop belittling artistes because of grammmys.
Davido hasn’t won a Grammy, that’s no big deal; Lots of music icons like 2Pac, Nicki, Sia, Katy Perry, Bob Marley & many more haven’t won one either despite being on top of their game. Stop belittling artistes cos of Grammys, it’s not a yardstick for success. It is just an award.

Apologizing, she wrote,
Hey guys, I’m apologizing once again. I had clear intentions and nothing more.
I was going to wallow in my “shame” and keep mute. But with the way it’s going, it seems the wound will keep getting deep. The organizer of the “skit awards” needed more publicity for the event, secured a meeting with the VP and invited so many “skit makers”
Activist, Aisha Yesufu however exhorted her saying, she need not apologize since she knows her intentions were pure and is what should matter most to her.
The activist wrote,
You do not need to apologise to anyone! You did not do anything wrong by having a meeting with the VP.
There are different ways of achieving something. It is never one way and it is okay whatever way one chooses.
Intentions are what count and you know yours!
Remember the Prophet (SAW) said Actions are judged according to intentions and that is all that matters. Your intentions are what should matter to you.
What people think or say must never matter.
What we feel alone with our thoughts is what should matter the most.
