According to the reality show star who was lodged in a room in the 25th floor of an hotel, there was a fire incident in the hotel and the fire alarm went off but she didn’t pay attention to it.

According to her, all the while, she was speaking in tongues and praying to God to avert the situation. Fortunately, they all made it out in one piece.

“Good afternoon guys.
Unfortunately I’ve tested positive for the coronavirus. Yesterday after taking the vaccine I fell severely ill and the following morning I was rushed to hospital where they broke the news that I was infected with the virus. I’m completely heartbroken and my whole family and I are shocked and disgusted.
It’s essential for me to take care of myself and rid myself from the virus so, I’m coming off social media for a while. I don’t know how long but I need to be away for my health.
Thank you all.
– oye x”
Her friend identified as @modellablessing on Instagram, has now made a U-turn on her earlier statement as she claims she never insinuated that Oye is dead.

On Hushpuppi’s 39th birthday, he took to his Instagram page to write ;
“Flying without wings”, a reality never amplified. Flying without wings, the truth about life that wasn’t mentioned to us as children. Flying without wings, a “timely” immolation by two to fetter and nurture ordinary souls into brotherhood. Flying without wings is love without restraint. Flying without wings is how we rose from the dusty streets of Ogunyomi to high path of prosperity of Versace Palazzo in Dubai. Flying without wings is what you did when you told me success is lonely at the top and that I deserve a seat there that I should come join you. It is your birthday today @Hushpuppi (Ramon), it hurts me so much that for reasons beyond the understanding of the judgemental lots you are not celebrating it out here. Flying without wings is the story of how Ramon made me, an ordinary child locked away from opportunities, haunted by the rear and classlessness of my background, it is the truth of how Ramon brought me relevance, it is how I will stand by him till death. Happy birthday to you best friend, okunrin meta ati abo ijaya gbogbo gbo, even in the hollow, your light still shine.
