Hey Everyone, it's been crazy busy at work, but I just got to do this, my favourite past time...gossip I mean lol! Thanks for all your words of encouragement.
Let me start today's gossip with something one of our Naija gossip mag's wrote about me and my bestest friend, Denrele Edun. Hilarious!
Secret Denrele Edun and Linda Ikeji are keeping to themselves.
For reasons best known to them, none has bothered to utter a word on it. And that's talking about the whirlwind romance once savoured by the duo of eccentric Sound City presenter, Denrele Edun and model Linda Ikeji. A course mate of theirs at Unilag then said they were so inseparable and hardly left each other's sight. The course mate, however, wouldn't know why they drifted apart as well as the reason none of them bothered to say anything about that secret liaison.
When I read this, I just laughed. Whirlwind romance...seriously? These people and their stories sha lol! Denrele and I were best friends in school, mostly because I was a little cocky back then and didn't bother making friends with other classmates, until maybe in my final year. He was trying to get into the modeling industry then so we used to hang out a lot. He was also very helpful to me in school...you know with assignments..tests...when I had modeling assignments (shhhh...don't tell my lecturers o lol!).
We were so close back then. We are still best friends, just that we don't hang out like we used to. He's too busy traveling around Naija.
I want to official say that even though Denrele looks...he has a beautiful soul . One of the best human beings you'll ever meet.
Secret liaison? Lots of laughter.
Here's another gossip about me...even more hilarious!!!
About Linda Ikeji and MTN big boy's closeness.
Those who find it a habit to spread tales are at it again. Because top model, Linda and MTN's big dude, John, have been attending events together of late, they are spreading the rumour that the twosome's closeness goes beyond casual friendship. I don't know what to make of the rumour, but I will find out if their closeness goes beyond what I'm being told anyway. The birds even swore that Linda is so much in love with the chap...
I don die o lol! Are these guys kidding me? Seriously? I'm typing and laughing...where do these people get these stories from. When I was reading this, I was seriously wondering if there was another model called Linda in Naija...cos this is not my life story. I'm in love with an MTN big boy called John? We've been attending events together? Haaaah! Seriously, these gossip people are crazy sha. I haven't been to an event in ages...is there any big boy called John who works at MTN? If you exist...get in touch. Since they've paired us...let's hook up. lol!
Seriously, I'm still very much single. Hopefully not for long...when I fall in love again...and start something new...something tells me y'all will either hear about it or guess it. God knows I want to get it right this time...so I'm in no hurry.
I gossip about other people, guess it's karma working huh? lol!
Just for the record, I ain't dating any John, don't know any MTN big boy...except for Tayoodukoya.com...lol! Hope I find a John soon. Wink!
