Nkem Owoh speaks at last- Taiwo Obatuson
Nollywood star actor, Nkem Owoh, popularly known as osuofia has been in the news for the past weeks for alleged drug trafficking. He was also rumoured to have lost his life in Saudi. The news right now is that Nkem himself spoke to City People last week through the phone concerning the issue. Hear him "Don't mind the romour mongers, may be they could be talking about paracetamol because that is the only kind of drugs I know. I have not travelled out of Nigeria in the past six months. I have not gone to the international airport, so I wonder what they are saying and where the rumours are coming from. As I am speaking to you now, I am in Port Harcourt working. Nothing happened to me"

Hi Lin, well, speaking about Mrs. Obasanjo's book, i would say it is for cheap popularity. YES.
Who cares about your husband's escapades, huh? There are better ways to become popular o. The most efective would have been to counsel young women on how to keep their homes, or advise in times of adversity.
Older women are to give counsel to the younger ones. Am i speaking?
I am not justifying the horrible things some men do to their wives,NO. Mama Iyabo Obasanjo-Bello's strategy is not just right for me! HABA...
Linda, what do you think?
