Actress Clarion Chukwura quote on ex-hubby
Question 'Your ex-husband Femi Oduneye said in an interview that he dumped you because of your evil ways. What's your reaction to that?'
Clarion "If Femi Oduneye dumped Clarion Chukwura because of her evil ways, who is Femi Oduneye? Where is Clarion Chukwura now? Who was Femi Oduneye before he met Clarion and where is he now? The first publication about me was a month after my 16th birthday, so I have been in the public glare since then. Nigerians can trace my record. Investigate slightly into wwho Femi Oduneye is, then you'll know who's telling the truth. Of course I smoke cigarettes, but he smokes more than I do. When a man is a failure, he searches for excuses. I was actually the eight woman Femi would do what he did to me...."
They say Chinedu Ikedieze aka Aki, has found love again. This time it's a 23 year old Lagos State university undergraduate, Nancy Chiedozie. The two were said to have met at a function some months back and have since remained inseperable. Hope this one works out for him.
Pastor Chris Okotie's driver was hacked to pieces some days back by a hit and run driver. Abayomi Famakinwa was killed along Oba Akran road in Ogba Ikeja Lagos on August 14th. His messed up corpse had his brain opened, one leg off, face shattered. It was the ID card on him that led to his being identified. May his soul rest in peace.
Stephanie Okereke quote on ex-hubby
"This is someone I had something with. I don't want to say anything negative about him. We are done. The only thing I heard about myself is that I was accused of being married before. I felt that was really malicious of him, to even come up with something like that. He was actually the one who was married before. Because I said I don't want to be in this relationship anymore, I turned out to be this horrible person? Also the allegation that I called a club and cancelled his contract is false. I didn't know I had such powers. It was actually funny, he claimed to have gone for trial, so how come the club didn't deem it fit to pick him then? There's no hope of a reconciation, I've filed for divorce but am not allowed to talk about it"
On her drug addiction rumour
"The rumour shows how myopic some people can be. I've never smoked cigarette in my life, I don't drink. If they manufactured all this lies to bring me down, too bad because they can never bring me down. I've been through a lot of things. I survived an accident, I survived a bad relationship and I'm still doing positive things in my life. If they are plotting all these evil things against me, shame on them"
