|Celebrities / Amide The Grass To Grace Story Of Zazu Zeh Singer Portable by AfricanGlitz(f): 6:18pm On Mar 11|
The hit jam, Zazu Zeh, a song by Portable featuring Olamide and Pocolee, lighted up the streets of Nigeria and beyond following its release in December of 2021. The song instantly became a street anthem loved and sampled by many. Even people who are not fans of streets jams also caught the wave and joined in the fun. Zazu was a massive success quickly raked in millions of streams on various platforms and airplay.
But it didn't just stop there. The success of the freestyle jam has rubbed off on Portable's fame. The lesser-known artist who has been hustling back and forth for ten years to get to stardom has suddenly become the rave of the moment and the centre of all attraction. Apart from spinning controversies here and there, the HipHop Fuji star who refers to himself as Omolalomi and Omoologo has been attracting good luck ever since. The likes of Davido and Wizkid have begun rolling with him and, on two different occasions, sprayed him with dollars. His fans equally gifted cars in the space of three weeks. And for the first time in his life, Portable travelled out of Nigeria to enjoy a fully sponsored vacation in Kenya.
However, owing to his looks, the way he talks, poor fashion style and conduct, many social media spectators have continued to describe the Zazu Master as 'Money Miss road', emphasizing that fame doesn't befit him. But the singer in an interview hinted it's because he just hit fame and still looks like poverty if it was a person.
So, where is portable coming from? What is his grass to grace story? Why did it take him ten solid years to make it to stardom?
|Celebrities / MERCY AIGBE Love-struck Story & Sad Reasons Why People Are Not Buying Her Side by AfricanGlitz(f): 6:00pm On Mar 11|
While revealing that she and her new husband have no plans to have kids together and she is considering converting to Islam as her religion, she made it clear she is not with Adeoti because of money, but because she loves him and he is her best friend. She said her kids are abroad, and she pays their fees in dollars, meaning she is not broke but extremely comfortable.
Shortly after this interview dropped, Adeoti's ex-wife, Funsho or shall we say his first wife came out with fire and fury to shame the new couple. Debunking Mercy Aibe's sugar-coated fairytale story in a lengthy post, the mother of four who addressed Adeoti as her soon to be ex-husband revealed that she never agreed to have a second wife in her marriage with him. She also validated the rumours that she and Mercy Aigbe were very close friends, adding that she was the one who invited the actress and her ex-husband to the 40th surprise party she threw for Adeoti eight years ago. Funsho explained that shame and the glam lifestyle the Mercy Aigbe projects will not let her admit she has been sleeping with Kazim Adeoti since her son was only five months old.
Lanre Gentry also reacted after trolls continued pestering him to conduct DNA for his son with Mercy Aigbe. He said the mistake with Adekaz's wife was bringing an "Ashawo" into her home, asking how many DNA tests he can conduct for Dogs." Wow!
To make matters worse, a throwback video of the Edo actress advising side chics also surfaced online. In the video Mercy Aigbe urged women dating married men to chop their money, cash out, and secure the bag, advising them not to live with him because he belongs to another woman.
After watching this video, people began tagging the mother of two, a professional side chic who became a wife, swearing that nothing truthful comes out of her mouth.
So with two failed marriages and a third, which has become a messy scandal as the wife, the main victim, is speaking out, many people are finding it hard to believe Mercy Aigbe's side of the story. This video of her advising young ladies on how to date a married man exposed her further and became the final nail in the coffin.
Can this woman be ever trusted with other women's men? Well, we will let you tell us your opinion in the comment section.
How about Mercy Aigbe and her new husband's interview? Do you think she lied about many things, including not being friends with his first wife?
Does Kasim Adeoti being a Muslim justify Mercy Aigbe becoming his second wife?
Finally, who do you believe? Adeoti and Mercy or Funsho and Lanre Gentry?

Jaruma has been forced the delet every post about Regina Daniels and Ned Nwoko's wifes on her Social Media pages.
Jaruma woes started in November of 2021 after she spun reports that the Kayanmata purchased and used by the billionaire 6th wife, Regina Daniels, is the reason why her co-wife, Laila Charani, was sent packing from their husband’s house.
Regina tried to salvage the situation in a post on her Instagram page, explaining that all her post of buying Kayanmata from the aphrodisiac seller was purely advertising. She had never used the products before. But Jaruma, however, insinuated that the 21-year-old Billionaire wife was lying via several Instagram posts, adding that she also owes her for not fulfilling all the terms and conditions of their 10 million Naira brand influencing contract.
On the 22nd of January, Jaruma shockingly got arrested by the police on the order of the Nollywood actresses husband and got locked up in Suleja prison in Abuja until she was allowed bail on Friday, January 29th.

While Jarumja, after bail, claimed that she was arrested on Monday and released on Tuesday, refusing to comment on the matter.
|Politics / 6 Sad Times President Buhari's Involvement Ended Nigeria’s Performance by AfricanGlitz(f): 2:13pm On Feb 02|
The day Nigerian Super Eagles were to face Tunisia at the African Cup of Nations, President Muhammad Buhari, made a video call and spoke to the players. This was when many Nigerians knew this could be the end of the journey for Maduka Okoye and his team members. Just like Dejavuu, it happened. Angry Nigerians, including social commentators such as Reno Omokri, Omoleye Sowoere and several others blamed the President for the Super Eagles’ defeat and elimination from the 2021 Africa Cup Of Nations. The team had progressed to the round of 16, after three straight victories against Egypt, Sudan, and Guinea Bissau in Group D.
The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, a.k.a Bubu, has been deemed a monumental failure by all and sundry. Since he came into power in 2015, the performance of Nigeria in just about every sector deteriorated rapidly. Nigeria, a country considered to have enough room for growth, especially with a young population, has now been reduced to survival mode. From the agricultural sector to the transport and logistics, oil and gas, sports, finance, tourism, power, health, and even technology sector are all struggling to rise to world-standard like a poorly formulated dough since Buhari made it to Aso rock. It has become an inside joke that anything Buhari touches or gets involved in turns to dust rather than gold.
Taking a more narrow glance, there are so many other events and phenomena’s where Buhari’s direct and indirect involvement led to a disastrous ending, According to Nigerians.
Having This in mind, let's look into six times Buhari’s involvement in Nigerian activities ended in ruins and maybe a few tears. Starting with the latest!
|Celebrities / 11 Sins Ooni Of Ife Was Accused Of Committing After His Was Disgraced By Wife by AfricanGlitz(f): 3:04pm On Jan 18|
Since Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi 3rd wife, Olori Naomi, publicly announced that she is no longer married to the monarch and is moving on with her life, several allegations have been working against the popular King of Ile Ife.
Ooni has been known in the past to divorce at least two of his official wives, but this time, shall we say the ball wasn’t in his court? Oh yes, the king reportedly wasn’t aware of the divorce and was in Lagos for an event at the time when his wife dropped the Bombshell news on December 23rd 2021, on her Instagram page. The Ooni reportedly found out his wife is divorcing him on social media just like the rest of us.
To add salt to injury, so many allegations have been flying around as to why his 3rd official wife divorced him. You must have heard some of them, including the ridiculous ones. No wonder his friend Charlie Boy decided to troll him about being dumped on social media, questioning how come two of his wives divorced him within two months and run away from the Kindom without notice, saying that truly, all that glitters is not gold in the household of a fine boy like the Ooni.
So what could make a woman publicly divorce her royal husband on social media just like that regardless of the shame and consequences?

It’s no longer news that Wizkid completely shut down O2 Arena between November 28 and December 1, 2021, for his much-anticipated 3-days Made In Lagos Concert. Apart from attracting a large crowd, after selling out three shows under 35 minutes, it also saw many afrobeat artists perform, including Bella Shmurda, Buju, and Tems.

The video has many Tems and Big Wiz fans going Gaga on Twitter. Saw the Joro singer trying to lift Tems, but she was quick to stop him, wriggling herself free from his hold just in time for them to continue with their performance. However, many people have read different meanings to Wizkid actions. The most prominent is that Wizkid was trying to be sexual with Tems on stage, and Tems reaction was just her way of saying that their relationship is strictly business.
Without sleeping on the matter, Tems hours later came out to say that Wizkid is her brother, further pointing out that she had long brother-zoned him and she’s not about to become Tiwa, whom he enjoyed friends with benefits relationship with in the past.
|Celebrities / Ooni Of Ife Refuses To Let Olori Naomi Go As Elders Step In To Reconcile Them by AfricanGlitz(f): 10:15am On Dec 30, 2021|
It looks like the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi it's not yet ready to let Olori Naomi, the mother of his first son, go yet. This comes across as very unusual for the two times divorced monarch who never looked back after divorcing his first and second wife a few years ago. But things appear different with Prophetess Naomi, who dumped the Ooni Publicly in an explosive writeup she posted on her Instagram page on the 23rd of December 2021.
So hours after the prophetess made the revelation, the Palace of the Ooni quickly reacted and claimed that the story was not true, pointing out that the Ooni and Olori Noami slept together under the same roof the night before the Olori made the revelation. The King had already left for Lagos for an event.
The Ooni has finally broken his silence. However, instead of addressing the divorce, the popular monarch said there isn’t any other queen replacing Olori Naomi, and his enemies are at work to ruin his marriage.
Is Ooni refusing to be dumped by his queen and trying everything possible to save his marriage?

|Celebrities / The Sad Truth About SALLE, The Street Hawker With Incredible Voice by AfricanGlitz(f): 12:31pm On Nov 04, 2021|
There is a saying that nothing can dim your light when it’s your time to shine. It looks like this is the case for 17-year-old Salle, who became an internet sensation after displaying an angelic look and voice while being recorded to freestyle.
Every now and then, Raw talent is spotted on the streets, and today, social media has made it so much easier for the talented ones with no one to help or financial backing to find their calling and live up their dreams. And this brings us to the story of Salle, a teen street hawker who was found on the streets of Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria, in mid-September of 2021.
In the video that kicked off her journey to fame, Salle displayed her musical talent while holding a tray and wrapper, freestyling innocently and effortlessly to several beats. Just like that, her story takes a new turn for success. The 17-year-old songstress has begun her transformation into a music superstar, while record labels such as Mavins Record, Chocolate City, and DMW are fighting to sign her.
However, this is without controversy. While others complain about Salle\s latest transformation of a good girl gone bad, others still can’t believe Salle’s story, her chat with Rihanna and fast growth to fame.
Who is Salle? What is so unique about her voice? Is Salle truly a street hawker or was it all staged to give her publicity?
|Celebrities / Obi Cubana Still In EFCC Custody? It Looks Like Things Are Going To Get Ugly! by AfricanGlitz(f): 11:30am On Nov 04, 2021|
On November 1st afternoon, the businessman was reportedly called in for questioning by Abuja EFCC operatives over alleged money laundering and tax fraud. He was, however, detained, interrogated, and his passport got seized.
The is coming months after the popular socialite and nightlife entrepreneur became the centre of attention following the lavish show of wealth during his mother's burial in Oba, Anambra State, on the 15th of July this year.
Indeed, just for the burial alone, the socialite, also known as Gods Preferred son, got over 500 livestock from friends and family and killed over 200 cows for the one-week long ceremony. Obi Cubana also splashed on a diamond-encrusted chain worth 40 million Naira just for the ceremony and pledged 300 million Naira to Youth development in the state. Guest at the event put the entire Anambra on a standstill. Many arrived in private jets. The Cubana CEO and his friends turned the burial venue into a money football field as they sprayed money like paper and used bundles of both local and hard foreign currency to play football.
Interestingly, before the show-stopper event, Obi Cubana was literally unknown to the general public, causing many to tag him as a rebranded Yahoo boy. In the same vein, they called on the EFCC to investigate his source of wealth despite evidence that the socialite is a legitimate hustler.
However, many are not convinced the EFCC is working on intelligence reports. Do most people believe Obi Cubana's arrest may have to do with his ethnicity as an Igboman or the upcoming Anambra Gubernatorial election? Could any of this be true?

|Celebrities / Pastor Friends Who Snubbed TB Joshua & Refuse To Send Condolences To His Family by AfricanGlitz(f): 5:25pm On Jun 22, 2021|
Sadly, not a word has been heard from some of Nigeria’s popular, powerful and influential pastors who have since then come under heavy criticism for their un-Christ Like attitude.
While many are unsure why TB Joshua death has been met with snub and deafening silence from the Christendom, popular Journalist Dele Momodu hinted that his fellow powerful Nigerian pastors disliked him while he was alive.
Also, speaking about the late TB Joshua, whom he described as his brother and friend, Femi Fani-Kayode explained that the late prophet didn’t judge other pastors as they judged him. He said that TJ Joshua cared only for humanity, and no other man of God in or outside Nigeria cared and catered for the poor and needy as TB Joshua did. The former minister of Aviation described TB Joshua as a star in Christendom, and like all-stars, he was bound to attract envy and jealousy from his peers, hence why they still dislike him even in death.
The BBC described TB Joshua as an ‘outsider who became a Global televangelist star’ and was greatly disliked for this. During his lifetime, top pastors not only labelled him as a fraudulent Christian pastor using black magic to perform miracles, but they also called him the son of the devil. As if that wasn’t enough, they refused to accept his application into the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) and Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) because he is not a born-again Christian, nor did he have any prior link to a spiritual father before establishing his church. For this reason, TB Joshua was neither a member of CAN nor PFN until his passing, which may explain why its members refused to commiserate with his family.

|Celebrities / Pastor ODUMEJE Shocking Lifestyle & Why He Was SHAMED by AfricanGlitz(f): 1:50pm On Apr 22, 2021|
When it comes to naming controversial and questionable pastors in Nigeria, Odumeje comes to mind always. His ministry has been ridden with shocking allegations and controversies from day one, and just recently, his connection with ailing comedian Ada Jesus gave birth to yet another controversy. It all started in 2020 after the Imo-based comedian accused Odumeje of stage-managing miracles and having an affair with Rita Edochie. Odumeje may be a self-styled man of God, but that doesn’t change the fact that he is human. He got angry and cursed Ada Jesus. Before anyone could finish saying Jack Robinson, the comedian became bedridden and lost her speech ability due to a deteriorating kidney-related disease.
Afraid for her life, Ada Jesus family took her to Odumeje’s Church to seek forgiveness in April of 2021, but Odumeje refused to forgive her, declaring that no one speaks ill against him and go scot-free. As if that wasn’t enough, Odumeje promised he would spiritually afflict her family, too, causing him to come under heavy criticism from Nigerians, especially Christians who likened him to a fake Christian pastor. 5 days later, Odumeje took a backtrack and finally forgave Ada Jesus, gifting her the sum of 1 million Naira. Sadly, Nigerians are displeased by his gesture and have called on him to prove he is not a fake pastor by healing the comedian.
This begs the question. Who is Odumeje? Why are many Nigerians convinced he is a fake pastor? What is his real connection with Ada Jesus, and why did he forgive her after vowing not to initially?

Recall that 4 years ago, Peter Okoye left the Psquare group, which he founded with his twin brother, Paul Okoye, over issues related to his wife. Since that time, he has also not been speaking to his family despite calls from fans for them to unite. Like Meghan, certain people still blame Lola, his wife, for breaking up the Okoye family, but Peter has stood his ground that he will never go back on his vows to love and protect her even if that costs him his family.
Nonetheless, many other Nigerians have now concluded that the singer is the real model for Igbo men and has done more for his wife than Prince Harry did for Meghan. Is this true? How is Peter Okoye’s marriage similar to Prince Harry and Meghan’s relationship? Is there still hope that Psquare will ever come back? How are Peter and Paul Okoye doing apart?
