Ali Baba and Mary Akpobome

Mary with Pastors Sam and Nike Adeyemi


Ali Baba is one celebrity that only a few, very few at that can deny not knowing. The fact is that he rides over the comedic terrain like a king that he is. This great guy is the reason why many, very many at that are who they are today, so kudos to him. Via him many have also become household names of repute.

Ali's wife by name Mary Akpobome is another type of celebrity on her own level, a boardroom guru of a sort, who is also very well loved either in her own personal capacity or also because she is the adorable wife of an acclaimed comedy/entertainment godfather. So on the occasion of her reaching the golden age of 50, it was celebration galore and many fell over themselves to celebrate the unofficial first lady of the comedy kingdom, where her adorable husband is the benevolent king.

Date of the birthday celebration was Tuesday July 11, 2018 and the venue was the Civic Centre, Ozumba Mbadiwe, Victoria Island, Lagos. The birthday celebration was done as a launch of the Purple Girl Foundation and initiative of Mrs. Akpobome. To celebrate with the couple were their family members, friends and colleagues, who all came out enmasse.

At the event were the likes of billionaire Tunde Folawiyo, Dame Abimbola Fashola, Mrs. Sarah Sosan, AIG (ret) Tunji Alapini, Richard Mofe Damijo, Pastor Sam and Pastor Mrs. Nike Adeyemi, Joseph Yobo, Julius and Ebiere Agwu, Bisoye Fagade, Mudi Enajemo, Toyin Abraham, Monalisa Chinda, Mabel Makin and very many others.

Young, handsome, successful, wealthy, sociable and highly connected, those are a few of the adjectives that perfectly describes the incomparable SHINA PELLER, the chairman and MD/CEO of Aquila Group of Companies, under which is probably West Africa's most successful nite club/lounge to date-Club Quilox.

The socialite and businessman par excellence, who apart from his successful entertainment company via which he has conquered the fun scene, who also owns his own oil and gas firm and is now getting set to also conquer the tupsy-turvy world of politics, is getting set to sweep all off their feet come 2019 as he wants to represent his party APC at the Federal House of Representative in his domain comprising of Iseyin (where he is a high powered, honourable Chief of his village), Itesiwaju, Kajola and Iwajowa all in Oyo State.

With the groundswell of support that has followed his declaration a few days back, the ultimate philanthropist might be coasting home to victory already whenever the time comes for people of those areas mentioned need to come out for elections.

It is very obvious with how things have panned out that the young, smart dude may have always had the political plans since which he kept to his heart, but has only just come out now at what he sees as the best time to do so. For those who might not know where the confidence that has pushed him to declare for politics came from, Shina is an unofficial political son of the great Asiwaju of the universe, in the person of the great Jagaban Borgu, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

For those with the right understanding, they have come to know now that a stamp of approval of any kind from the Asiwaju, a thorough bred political juggernaut from the South West part of Nigeria whose tentacles has spread across Nigeria is likened, to an express endorsement from the great strategist. Not only has Shina gotten the support of the SW political godfather, the successful businessman, is also very well recognised at home, where he hails from, having the ears of his king, the royal father of Iseyin, the Aseyin of Iseyin, His Royal Majesty, Oba Dr AbdulGaniyu Adekunle Salaudeen and other members of the Royal council. Not just that alone, long before now, his homestead and environs have always enjoyed the very visible warm embrace of his philanthropy on many levels.

Shina 42, probably the most recognised of the kids of the great magician known popularly as the late Prof. PELLER has always put his money where his mouth is, not just in the village, but even those around him in Lagos know him to be a shrewd but jolly good friend too who is ever ready to extend a helping hand to those in need. The likes of K1 the ultimate and many others cannot just stop praising the young man's name to high heavens.

So would the great 'Olowo Idan' (the dude with the magic touch) as he is known or called by many who know him already on his way to the House? That's most likely a resounding YES!!! 


This top boss is probably one of the most powerful presently. Even before now, he was a top boss in charge of one of the richest place. There's no love lost between him and the dude currently on the saddle in that place. Though he allegedly made that dude, they are at the opposite end of the spectrum and they "hate" each other with a strong, most probably everlasting passion.

This boss, big boss by all standards has proven his mettle as a big strategist of the most awesome kind and person of influence already, apart from the fact he was in charge of the train that swept in like an hurricane to take over a couple of years back at the centre, it is also vie him that some young people both male and female were able to hit extraordinary paydirt too on many severs levels. He was the former Chief Executive of where he is from for 2 terms also before taking charge of another massive assignment and appointment right now, for which he is quietly also stamping his footprint down enviably. Though he loves to work extremely hard, he also enjoys his play period/time very much too. Though very married, his love life, by that we mean his away game is quite legendary too.

Though his conquests are plenty, he is more known for a particular success story then. He was majorly a part of the success story of a popular young, stylish south-western somewhat celebrity and somewhat author then, who he became a good shoulder for, after her love life crashed and she had to move on. So good was he then, that he made her completely forget her pain till she found another very big boy, much older now, that completed the skyrocketing elevation then. Our dude who has a reputation for not liking to share, quietly moved on too.

Now from what we have learnt, one of those that the dude moved on to is a sweet looking, quite innocent looking at that mixed race, and she is currently just 19! Nineteen whatttttt? Yes 19!

The fact is that she only clocked 19 just very recently! And it's not like the relationship just began this year or even last year! So apparently our dude, apparently caught his darling pretty young! We are not in anyway saying or accusing him of "cradle-snatching"! Like they say, love is quite blind and maybe it's better to even catch them young at times. Is it not what is a common part of the culture or traditions of some bastards!

When you see this not too tall, but innocent looking lady, who who seem to also have a growing love for her kind, you would think she's totally innocent. Whenever our dude is in need of her, he sends for her, even via a private jet! 


Fine boy Group MD/CeO of UBA Plc, Kennedy UZOKA 

Kennedy and Lotanna Uzoka

If a man works very hard, especially if he excels very well at what he does with panache and effortless ease and the people around, both near and far can see the results of the hardwork and sleepless nights, then he is most assuredly allowed some excesses of life, especially if that person can afford those little pleasures of life that separates the minions, the ordinary from the Duke of the Manor.

So like it is said all hard work and no commensurate play makes Jack, in this case Kennedy Uzoka, the Group/MD CeO of UBA Plc one of Africa's premier banking institutions, a dull boy.

So in order not to be a dull boy, the man known as a consummate banker of many years of repute, Kennedy Uzoka works hard and therefore also indulges himself also very well in what he loves so much--in that he collects extraordinary machines on wheels or better still some of the best cars that money can afford. And according to our findings, his garage is littered with these humongous wonders on wheels that many tag as luxury cars, that would make many do a triple take not even a double take for their sheer opulence!

Name any of those cars worth their salt or value--Mercedes G Wagon and other makes of the brand, Rolls Royce etc and its most likely already beautifying the humongous garage of this quiet and super hardworking banker, sitting pretty like many super impressive chariots of fire.

K.U's garage is said to be so intimidating that many even mistake him for a automobile dealer of the super 1st class type.

The Group CEO/MD of UBA Plc, Africa's premier banking institution has come a long way from his days at Uniben many years back, where he bagged a BSc degree, before going on later to bag his MBA, finance from the famous University of Lagos. He has been on the board of UBA Plc for 8 years running now. He became the Head honcho of the Bank after Phillips Oduoza retired in 2016. He is also currently a director of the CSCS Plc. He was Deputy MD/CeO of UBA from 2011 till 2016 (that's for 5 straight years) and before then he was an Executive Director from 2010 till 2011 when he was later elevated to the DMD level.

For many that might not readily know or understand, to become an ED of a bank not to talk of becoming the CEO/MD not to talk of a Group MD/CEO at that is not a little thing. Once a person attains the position of a GM and most especially an ED that one is actually made for life! Just imagine the kind of unbelievable salaries and bonus that comes with the position, not to talk of the kind of gifts that comes one way too. Never ever forget that nearly everything that the MD, EDs immediate family members enjoys are free! Best home, best schools, best travelling options, best salaries etc just name it!

UBA Plc established in 1949 has grown massively into one of the largest financial institutions in Africa with a massive presence in 20 African countries and even presence in 3 global financial centers-London, Paris and New York. The global Bank has 1000 plus business offices with over 14 million customers!

According to our findings, once a bank is doing well like UBA Plc is, the sky is just the beginning for the MD, the EDs and even the GMs of that bank. There is a certain percentage of the annual profit that is shared. By this we mean all in very good positions in that bank or institution are on a supreme roller-coaster, that's because the largesse trickles down from the top downwards.

In fact, a bank MD/CeO can take home, apart from his annual salary which already runs into hundreds of millions, 1% of the declared profit of that bank for the year. So just imagine that 1% of the profit after tax for a year of 70 plus billion naira comes to a staggering 700 hundred million Naira for just one person alone! So why wouldn't that one be on a buying spree like one is on a magical Aladdin's carpet gliding in the skies?

Now you can understand why certain people in the banking world, likes of the Group Chairman of UBA Plc, Tony Elumelu, likes of Chairman of Zenith Bank Plc, Mr Jim Ovia and many others a verified billionaires!!!

One of those enjoying her husband's good fortune none other than the very beautiful and quiet wife, Lotanna who you can most often see riding in one or the other of her husband's several machines.


Dr. Olubukola Saraki stepping out of the plane

Waving atop his car in the motorcade

Crowds waving and hailing their hero

Senate President acknowledging greetings. 

Dr. Olubukola Saraki with the Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Sulu Gambari

After 3 years of uncertainty over what could be the final verdict in his case at the court premised on false declaration of assets, it was most likely the biggest relief of his life, when the Supreme Court, which is Nigeria's highest court of the land declared him innocent and acquitted him of all charges  brought against many days back.

So Nigeria's Senate President, a former 2 term Governor of his beloved state-Kwara, a trained medical doctor in the person of Dr. Abubakar Olubukola Saraki, 55 returned to his homestead-Ilorin just yesterday and it was a return that could be compared to that of a triumphant warrior who had just come home after a victory of extraordinary proportions. And to show their love for their hero par excellence who after facing a battle that could have consumed him and rendered him mojoless, his fans, admirers and supporters alike came out enmasse and accorded him a heroic welcome befitting a returning hero that would have warmed his heart sumptuously and caused jitters in the hearts of his enemies.

The supporters who had arrived around the Ilorin Airport in Kwara State waited several hours, as much as 8 hours to receive their hero and to give him a worthy rousing reception. The Ilorin-Ogbomosho Road, on which the Airport is located was lined on both sides with cars of his supporters spanning many kilometers long. The cars parked on the sides of the roads particularly affected the traffic on that road, as those coming into town from Ogbomosho and environs had a horrid time.

So when the man of the moment in the person of Dr. Olubukola Saraki finally arrived at the International Airport, Ilorin with his entourage made up of Dr  Doyin Okupe, Dr. Razak Atunwa, Dr. Ali Ahmad & Senator Rafiu Ibrahim it was like the triumphant entry of a saviour! The rousing welcome was totally unprecedented, it was a gross display of love for him by his people, which must have totally melted his heart. With how the people came out to hail his motorcade, the 3rd highest person in hierarchy in the present Government must have felt a glow in his heart and a glorious and very large embrace from his people. Could this utter display of support and love touch his heart and make him make the decision to contest next year's Presidential election? We eagerly await his decision on that and also on whether he would be dumping his party-The APC for another party.

Responding to newsmen questions after the rousing welcome, the Senate President spoke on his battles of the last 3 years thus--He described his three-year trial as tough but expressed satisfaction that his followers never doubted his innocence as he had told them on many occasions

-DRUG ADDICTION and more, were all the packages that brought down this 1 year old marriage, according to Temitope Obasanjo nee Adebutu.

It's only in good times that all is well, nice and cosy, but when the chips are down and it is tending towards a battle, when things have fallen apart, then the common saying becomes "all is fair in love & war" and this particular saying of the sages is apparently what has seemingly become the guiding principle for Jowon Obasanjo in his current battle with his wife of only 1 year, in the person of Magistrate Georgina Temitope Adeporo Obasanjo, nee Adebutu.

When this marriage/union was constituted just slightly over 12 months ago amidst extraordinary pomp, with colossal amount of money running into several hundreds of millions in Naira spent, many never thought that even if there was going to be any form of snag which could lead to a separation, a battle of wits or even outright divorce, that it could be this quick! But alas, both parties are now at dagger's drawn ready for the guns on each side to boom rather loudly with massive effect and both sides are not willing or ready in any way or manner to backdown! Or like it is said commonly, to take a chill pill!

The truth majorly is that, that the union even lasted all of 12 months at all, is only because Tope, the wife still had hope that things could work out somehow and therefore waited for a reconciliation of a sort, not until her husband came with the clanger, and demanded that they both go their different or is it separate ways!

Jonwo like he usually does had gone away on another of his regular 'flight of fancy', to unknown destinations while remaining incommunicado. The particular one being the last, was for all of 4 and half straight months (from November 2017 till March 2018), with no communications of any kind whatsoever, only to arrive to demand for a full separation! And this was without him ever consumating the union at all.

So the frustrated wife was aghast to have received a letter which finally communicated her husband's intentions, which he had always threatened to do for a longwhile.

To show that he was very serious about what he had communicated in his letter and was bent on following his words with actions, he went ahead and instituted a case at the Igbosere Magistrate Court, Lagos Island with his affidavit of June 4, 2018, alleging amongst others- that shortly after the union was sealed, he suffered physical assaults from his new wife as well as threats to his life. So for fear for his life, he has askied for the court's intervention so as to help prevent further attacks!

Evangelist Mrs. TAIWO Obasanjo 

Magistrate Tope Obasanjo & Mrs Rosemary Dacosta Adebutu 

Estranged couple Jonwo &  Temitope Obasanjo

Taiwo Obasanjo, Sir Kensington Adebutu & Chief Olusegun Obasanjo 

Chief Olusegun Obasanjo is frightfully evil, wicked, sick and sexually immoral demonically, a sadistic psychopathic father and an unrepentant arrogant tormentor of his children who is abusing and misusing his paternal power and influence to negatively cow his children into submission, possessing demonic intelligence,a serial satanic destroyer of all family values without remorse.

....  Evangelist Mrs. TAIWO OBASANJO

Jonwo Obasanjo's mom, Evangelist Taiwo Obasanjo never wanted this marriage to happen in the first place from the get go. She did all that was humanly possible to end it, via not wanting the wedding ceremonies to happen, but she lost at the court, when the court declared that adults could make decisions by themselves and so the wedding had to go on and so began the marriage on a very shaky foundation. Maybe that should have been good enough reasons to back out! When a mother says No at all cost, maybe they should have left her son for her!!!?

The first pointer that it wasn't well at all in the relationship was when the new husband disappeared just immediately after signing the dotted lines and had to be persuaded, to even go for his own honeymoon in Monaco, France! Wasn't that crazy?

Even after he went, it was like the marriage was jinxed from the start as it wasn't consummated and it was never ever consummated all through the one year and a few weeks that it lasted! Shocking!

Jonwo finally in March 2018 after appearing from another of his dissappearing act, requested both parties to part ways and find happiness, wherever else they could. To show he was very serious and not joking at all, he went ahead to institute a case at the court asking to be protected against what he stated as consistent assault and threat to life by his estranged wife.

But the wife refuting all the allegationsmmade by her estranged husband, made a counter affidavit, claiming that rather she was the one that was hurt all through the length of time the marriage lasted.

There has been hot exchanges from both sides claiming this and that since the scandal broke out in the first place. With the way things are going its like the bric bracs from both sides are not going to end soon as both sides have dug deep and are ready to wash their dirty linens in the public view without a care in the world. At every given opportunities, each sides just releases ICBMs after ICBMs (intercontinental ballistic missiles). On both sides are the mothers of their kids both waxing very lyrical not ready to be quiet. For Jonwo is his relentless mother, Mrs. TAIWO OBASANJO, aka Evangelist. While on the other side is Mrs. Rosemary Dacosta Adebutu, the mother of Magistrate Temitope Adebutu, who is hell bent on protecting her daughter at all cost, against what she considers a threatening attack! Her battle cry has been, The Obasanjo's should leave her family alone!

In this particular post, the Evangelist, has come out without a care in the world, with gun blazing in all directions, taking everyone, including her estranged husband, Chief Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo, GCFR, the former president of Nigeria and renowned statesman to the cleaners, even accusing him as far as being diabolical. In her no holds barred statement, Mrs. Taiwo Obasanjo alleged so much, many of what she claimed are far too shocking!!!! The vehemence in her statement shows unbridled hatred, why so, cannot be readily ascertained immediately right now.

We are too sure, that this terrible drama as it is unfolding and that has defied understanding is not going to end so soon. The way it is even going, maybe Nollywood is probably going to come out with a script and a film about it sometime soon. What is so obvious though is that a side is willing to destroy another at all cost, no matter whose ox is gored.

Hear Mrs Taiwo Obasanjo--

Benedict Peters

 The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has, today 6 July 2018, directed the immediate release of two properties located in the United Kingdom belonging to African Billionaire businessman and Aiteo boss Benedict Peters which had been the subject of an Interim Forfeiture Order obtained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in 2016, allegedly in the course of its investigation of allegations of corruption against the former Petroleum Minister, Mrs Dieziani Alison-Madueke.

By this decision, the court has upheld Peters’ case that the properties wholly belonged to him; was unconnected to any activities of the former minister and were unlawfully as well as unjustifiably included in a list of properties the Commission tried to seize.  The judge, Mrs Justice Nyarko found that a court of Federal Capital Territory (FCT) being competent and coordinate jurisdiction had, in a judgment in separate proceedings, made significant findings with respect to Peters’ means of livelihood.

 The judge ruled that the same court had confirmed his legitimate acquisition of a number of London-based properties including the two properties at Flat 5, Parkview, 83-86 Prince Albert Road as well as Flat 58 Harley House, Marylebone Road, both in London
and had declared that those assets were insusceptible to forfeiture under any circumstance.  

Justice Nyarko directed that in that event, those properties could not continue to be restrained by the order EFCC had obtained and directed that the properties be released to Peters immediately. Full Report to follow.

…Gives 30-Day Ultimatum For Articulated Vehicles To Obtain Road Worthiness Certificate 

Following the tragic tanker explosion on Otedola Bridge inward Ojodu Berger along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway which claimed lives and property, the Lagos State Government on Sunday restricted movement of Fuel Tankers to designated trailer route going forward.

The government also said it was now mandatory for all articulated trucks coming into Lagos to obtain the Ministry of Transportation’s Road Worthiness Certificate at any of the designated centres within the next 30 days.

Addressing a joint press briefing at the Bagauda Kaltho Press Centre in Alausa after meeting with all the relevant stakeholders including Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), Association of Maritime Truck Owners (AMATO), Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD), National Association of Transport Operators (NATO), Container Truck Owners Association of Nigeria, among others, the State’s Commissioner for Transportation, Mr Ladi Lawanson, said the decision became necessary following preliminary investigations into the incident which revealed a combination of vehicular defect and human errors.

Lawanson said: “As an immediate response to the latest incident, the Lagos State Government hereby announces the following measures: Fuel tankers are hereby directed to ply the designated trailer route, that is, Apapa-Oworonshoki Expressway via Ogudu to Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

“All Tankers and containers coming into Lagos State from henceforth are directed to obtain the Ministry of Transportation Certificate of Road Worthiness at any of or centres within the next 30 days, while new centres along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway will be established to quickly to cope with the expected demand for this service.”

He listed the 10 centres currently available to process the applications to include Berger, Ojodu; Odogunyan, Ikorodu; Agric/Ishawo Road, Ikorodu; Worksyard, PWD, Shogunle; NCI, Gbagada; VIS Yard, Oko-Afo, Badagry; VIS Yard, Ayobo-Ipaja; Test Centre, Badagry; VIS Yard, Epe; and VIS Yard, Oko-Oba Abattoir.

Lawanson, who addressed the briefing alongside heads of government agencies and the stakeholders, said preliminary investigation revealed that the affected tanker which exploded was registered in Nasarawa Local Government, Kano State with registration number NSR 888 YC, and had changed ownership 13 times since purchase.

“It (the tanker) was manufactured in 1999 by Mack Trucks Inc at its assembly plant in Winnsboro, United States. This truck was designed as a 14,959kg (approximately 15 ton) drilling rig with low bed, but it was converted in Nigeria from a drilling rig to fuel tank carrier to carry 30 tonnes.

“From this preliminary investigation, the truck should not have been loaded to the weight of 30 tonnes, which is twice its pulling capacity,” the Commissioner said, adding that further investigation into the current ownership of the tanker and other related details were progressing.

May the souls of all that perished untimely in the unfortunate fire incident of yesterday in Lagos along the Otedola bridge not too far from Alausa, find rest! We commiserate with the families, friends and colleagues of the dearly departed on their unfortunate losses, may God give all of them the strength to bear their terrible and irreparable losses.

Yesterday, Thursday, June 28, 2018 was a black day in Lagos! It was the day a fuel laden tanker, lost control through a supposed brake failure and then fell on the bridge with its full content of PMS, that's 33000 litres of highly inflammable product, which exploded and caused many unfortunate and irreparable damages, which would take many of those affected a very long while to bear and forget. By the time the horrible black smoke from the explosion and fire had subsided a little, many lives, had unfortunately been sent to their early graves and much damages had been done to people's properties, specifically their cars!

At least from the reports gotten, at least 9 people made up of 8 adults and 1 minor lost their lives in the fire outbreak!  That's the official report, but the death count might actually be far more than that. Also official figures says not less than 54 various types of vehicles were burnt beyond recognition and repairs, which also might be far more than that too. It was a horror scene yesterday! Many of those caught in the fire, didn't know what hit them, if it was something they could have ran from, maybe they could have escaped without getting hurt. PMS is highly flammable and the fire would have gone as far as wherever the petrol streamed to and would continue to burn as long as there is oxygen in the air to feed the fire too. The tanker that caused the bloodshed was a Mack Truck, it has not yet been ascertained who it belongs to and where particularly it was going before the unfortunate accident occurred!

Though the unfortunate incident took many lives and caused much damages, we must thank God that the fire didn't extend to many of the petrol stations on that road, as the carnage could have taken a much more extreme dimensions, causing far more deaths and untold damages than what it already caused.

Like we said before, we pray for the souls of those lost!

Benedict Peters wins again - Abuja High Court Grants “Stay of Action” Regarding Racially and Religiously Prejudiced Persecution


The National Crime Agency of the United Kingdom, The Crown Prosecution Service (UK) alongside other foreign-based defendants and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have been dealt a huge blow in the case against Aiteo Boss, Billionaire Benedict Peters. A High Court sitting in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, on Monday June 25, 2018, ordered the parties to maintain the status quo until the hearing of the main issues in the case.

Benedict Peters demanded $5billion in compensation, for what he describes as a series of unlawful and fraudulent conspiracies allegedly organised by the EFCC, AGF, the National Crime Agency and Crown Prosecution Service (UK) and individuals, Helen Hughes, Stacey Boniface, and John Bavister, “to expropriate by intimidation, assets, properties, monies to which he is legitimately entitled.”

In suit number FCT/HC/CV0536/17, the court has heard that properties belonging exclusively to  Benedict Peters were wrongfully included in a list of properties alleged to belong to Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke, the former Minister of Petroleum in Nigeria, and that despite abundant evidence showing that Peters owned the properties, the defendants maliciously and deliberately continued to suppress the information with the intent not only to permanently deprive him of the properties but to destroy him as well as his business interests.  In the proceedings, which has been described as falling within the “fraud of Carousel Tort”, the plaintiff seeks judicial protection and compensation.

Like a thief in the night, who is set upon destruction at all cost, she crept in to a home that was well swept and clean. We all already know what the good book says about the main preoccupation of a thief, it's all about "stealing, destruction and killing"! 3 deadly focus. That dastardly and terrible serpent in the good book aptly describes what a thief does,by that we mean its agenda.

So our perfectly disguised, seemingly naive looking serpent systematically picked her victim, a very loaded and handsome, but quite gullible oil and gas billionaire; was he that gullible? A married man at that, whose wife from what we could learn was a nice lady.

Madam herself is a gorgeous lady by all standards possible, beautiful, super stylish and quite elegant to add to the whole packagea and also said to be very hardworking too. Not one to sit at home, waiting for honey to just be pouring cealessly from somewhere into her mouth.

Like it is a common saying in the South West of Nigeria amongst the Yoruba speaking people, "when one would finish eating a good, quite sumptuous and palatable meal and then go about afterwards  looking for unnecessary extras that can tear the stomach as dessert, so it seems the man went wandering! Just imagine a man looking for something you are not getting starved off at home and then you go on a terribly self indulgent trip that nearly set you on the path of destruction from the word go!

Like they say in pidgin "chop finish go tear belle", something akin to what is described as appetite for destruction, the man had thought to have a quick chop and go or was it, touch and go, but the young well experienced  well tutored lady in the act of subterfuge, wasn't going to just allow that at all. She herself being well adept in the game, a sure master of the game, thoroughly well schooled in the game of mind chess, she wasn't planning for or ready for a quicky, instead she had sharpened her claws to the most horrendous level and also her long well poisoned fangs! She had viewed the game many steps far ahead, and had anticipated all the possible scenarios and had prepared for whatever eventualities could come up. And so she played each step to perfection, using emotional blackmail as a major tool each step of the way. So she got in, and wasn't ready to shift base at all, even at a point she had nearly uprooted the owner of the house, wanting to send her packing, but only grace saved her! But alas, after a roller coaster that has lasted for a few years, it's like the game is already up and whatever it was that beclouded the man for so long, whatever it was that had hypnotized him, whatever scales that had covered his eyes that didn't allow him see properly before seem to have suddenly disappeared. So just as abruptly as it started, the whole sham has now hit the rocks and obviously irredeemably!

On to the next already! As a game chick, who cannot be down for too long, the mother of one seems to have moved on already to another conquest again! Again? Yes again and it's another super well heeled and married man again who is also very well known! In fact he was speculated at one time to have been interested in becoming the Chief Executive of his state. Hmmmmmm, who can this be? It's in that state where the ultimate and incomparable father xmas who is now a member of the national assembly used to reign. Our man is specially known by his acronym, which is the name of the most popular or one of the most favored rapid fire weapon or gun in the world, the AK 47!

Dbanj, late son and wife 

D Banj by the unfortunate pool 

It has been a very sad few days since the unfortunate and avoidable death of the handsome son of D Banj and his wife, Daniel Oyebanjo III. The unfortunate demise came about as the one year old drowned inside the indoor swimming people at his parents home in Ikoyi on Sunday, June 24, 2018.

Since the sad occurrence was confirmed, most especially by the father of the baby who was far away in America attending the BET Awards 2018 when the unfortunate event occured, it has been an avalanche of outpouring of emotions from all over, as friends, fans, colleagues etc have been sending in their messages of condolences, commiserating with the musician and his family over the painful, so Untimely loss. Daniel the 4rd only just clocked a year old in May of 2018, that's a few weeks ago and the birthday was so very well celebrated.

Even the Police have not been left out too in sending their condolences. But just as they have commiserated with the star and his family over the sad loss, they have also confirmed they would be investigating the unfortunate incident also to find out the remote cause of the sad occurrence, they even released a statement towards their intention thus-


The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Edgal Imohimi, on behalf of officers and men of Lagos State Police Command, wishes to commiserate with the family of Mr and Mrs Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo a.k.a D’BANJ on the death of their one year old son, Daniel (Jnr) Oyebanjo whose sad event took place yesterday 24/06/2018, at the Ikoyi-Lagos residence of the family.

The CP wants the family to know that at this period of their grief, the entire Command shares in their pain.

Although a delegation from the Command, led by the Divisional Police Officer, Ikoyi Division, CSP Mustapha N’Abba, who were at the Ikoyi home of the Oyebanjos on a condolence visit did not meet anyone at home, it is expected that when the mourning period is over, the family will formally report the circumstances that led to the unfortunate death of little Daniel to the police. May his soul rest in peace. Amen.

May the dear soul of the unfortunate child find rest in God's bosom.

Jonwo & wife, Tope 

Tope & mom, Princess Rosemary 

Magistrate Temitope Obasanjo

Jonwo & Temitope on their wedding day

Bromide of the letter sent to Tope by Jonwo
Jinwo's letter asking for authority from Segun Adebutu 

Middle of last year May 11 and 13, 2017 to be more precise, in Lagos wouldn't be forgotten in a hurry, as those were the 2 days when the families of Sir Kensington Adebutu and that of Chief Olusegun Aremu Okikiola Obasanjo, GCFR were joined in holy matrimony! The families had done the native law and custom and then sealed it with the church stamp of approval at The Methodist Church of the Trinity, Tinubu, Lagos, on the Saturday, which was the 13th. Maybe that date itself by virtue of hindsight now, being the 13th was a premonition of a sort, of what was to come, humiliation and disaster.

It was a humonguos wedding by all standards possible. In fact, it was rated amongst all the weddings that took place that year as one of the top 3 weddings of that season. Nothing whatsoever was spared. Bride arrived in a brand spanking new glittering white Rolls Royce, while the groom came in another Rolls Royce, but a glistening black one, both came like stars and those that saw them wished they were in their shoes. The money spent to put it all together is still speculated in the region of  hundreds of million Naira, while some have said it was slightly above a billion Naira, some have even claimed that it was far more than that. Imagine a 9 or 10 tiered humongous wedding cake(s) by Cake by Tosan, who is said to be the best in the country! Imagine that Tope's wedding outfit was specially and specifically commissioned by one of the best Lebanese brands, Ziad Nakad, who specializes only in Haute Couture wedding outfits for the best of the best, it is speculated to have cost about $30000 dollars just for that alone, that's not costing the jewelry and other accessories that was used. Her hair throughout the ceremonies was taken care of by the best in Nigeria, that's none other than the incredible, Ugochukwu Igbokwe of Make Me Hair Studios. The whole of the banquet hall of the Eko Hotel Convention Centre was taken and transformed for use, that alone costs several millions of Naira, running to about 20 million Naira! The choice of the best of meals were served, just as the best of drinks too, likes of the best champagnes, brandies, whiskies and cocktails were made available, that alone is several millions of Naira, which could have run into a hundred million on its own. The venue, foods and drinks alone consumed about 150 million Naira. Even the gifts, that the guests all received were totally out of here. Even the invitations must have cost a sizeable chunk.

Any amount that the events might have cost, is most definitely chicken feed for the bride's dad, who is affectionately referred to as 'Baba Ijebu' the same name Nigerians have given to his popular lottery/betting game. He is undoubtedly, the numero uno of lottery and betting in the whole of Nigeria bar none. As the chairman of Premier Lottery and who is also an avowed philanthropist par excellence, Sir Kensington Adebutu is indeed an awesomely wealthy man, by all standards. One whose kids, majorly the men though are all also, stupendously rich too on their own!

The groom's dad is not a minion too by any standards, as he is none other than the former military head of state of Nigeria and then also a 2 terms President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, in the person of Chief Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo, GCFR, a former chieftain of the PDP and now referred to as a statesman, but also the convener of the 3rd Force, a new political advocacy group.

The 2 personalities involved in the marriage were, Sir Adebutu's daughter by name Georgina Temitope Oyepero Adebutu, a brilliant magistrate in Ogun State, an alumni of the University of Lagos and the University College London for her Masters, which she got with distinction. Tope was apparently one of the best students in all the schools she has ever attended. Her husband, the businessman son of Chief Obasanjo, in the person of Abraham Olujonwo Ajani Obasanjo, who very much is not known about, other than that, he schooled abroad and is a businessman/farmer, works for his dad.

With how things went, especially the super expensive and lush wedding ceremonies which had all the who-is-who in Nigeria in attendance, many had expected a roller-coaster of a marriage, which at most a year after, would be welcoming and celebrating babies and celebrating some other milestones, but alas, barely just one year after, dark clouds have poured stormy rains on what was once thought to be a match made in heaven and as we speak, the center cannot hold no more and both husband and wife are set on a course in divorceville and both are not willing to rectify or save the marriage, no matter what.

For Temitope Obasanjo nee Adebutu, it has been a very tumultuous and incredulously painful one year, the kind that she cannot pray for her worst enemy to have undergone or experience. Imagine that you are highly expectant after a superlative nuptial ceremony, but all that you experienced from just a few days after the euphoria of the ceremonies have died down, is unimaginable cruelty, neglect or better still desertion and no love whatsoever!

More after the break.
