In a statement by Moji’s brother, Femi Olaiya, the family dismissed rumours that the late actress was poisoned in Canada.

We also remembered late OJB Jezreel one year after his death.  OJB died aged 49 on June 14, 2016, following a long-term battle with Kidney disease.

Media personality Denrele Edun in an interview opened up on his failed marriage plan.

The actor in a chat with Guardian Life magazine said, "They said there would be a lot of terms and conditions, that I would have to behave a certain kind of way. I thought about it but when I was “normal”, I didn’t have money, if I am broke how will I pay bride price…the girl and I are still friends."


Meanwhile, AY Makun and wife Mabel had a public meltdown.

Charly Boy also took to the streets of Lagos to stage a shirtless anti-corruption, anti-government protest.
