Naija Entertainment News

Let me start by apologising to my bossom friend, Niyi Tabiti. I absolutely didn't mean to rubbish him or anyone else like he thinks, with what I wrote on my blog yesterday. I love people too much to want to rubbish anyone. I really didn't mean it that way. Just gossipping ;) You know, I talk too much and sometimes I'm a careless talker...my apologies sweets.

I already called to apologise and we are cool. I have mad love for him and he knows it.

Niyi writes "I can tell you for free that she rarely attends up to five events in a year." lol
Is it up to five? I have a problem with dressing up and going to social events...but don't worry, I'll up it to 6 this year...lol

Anyway, let's move to the gossip post of the day. Not much 'cos I'm really tired. I come back home too late nowadays. It's about 1 am and I'm up blogging. What a life I have...lol

Onyinye Igwe leaves Soundcity – Rebecca Akinkunle
TV hostess, Onyinye Igwe, has resigned from Soundcity. The gorgeous girl whose resignation is generating ripples here and there. This is what she had to say about leaving Soundcity.
OnyinyeI left Soundcity because I was done. There was nothing else for me to do there. If I wasn’t of good value to Soundcity, my departure wouldn’t mean anything, but the fact that I made an impact there means that whatever is going on now has to go on. I’ve gotten millions of messages on facebook, people say you were so good, why did you leave? You need to tell us the channel you’re going to so that we can move to that place. I didn’t realize it was going to be that bad, because I wanted to leave quietly and move back to England and decide what I want to do next. I’m not glad that I left Soundcity in a way but I have to move on with my life.”

Chris Brown arrested, assaults Rihanna

Omowunmi denies dating Dele Fasan
It's kinda sad when people see you with a guy, and the next thing you read in the press is that you're dating him. That recently happened to Omowunmi Akinnifesi, ex-MBGN 05. I'm sure some of you read the story about her dating a Dele Fasan pictured with her at the Future Awards...well, none of that is true. She spoke with Shade Wesley Metibogun of Encomium magazine, to clarify the issue

Omowunmi “I know no person like that. The guy came to me as a fan and we took shots together at the Future Awards. He is a stranger and an impersonator. I just took pictures with him. I had never seen him before until that day. In fact, the Future Awards was the first event I attended since the Genevieve Turquise Ball. I am really disappointed in this kind of story"

Dele Fasan's response
"It is not true, we just met on the red carpet at the Future Awards. I know her as an ex-beauty queen, but not as a friend. I am one of her fans, there's no form of a relationship between us"
Check out the red carpet pix that started the dating rumour here http://www.gistmaster.com/gist32.aspx
I'll give you more entertainment news later...too tired right now.
