Onyeka Onwenu defends Toni Payne against ThisDay writer, Azuka Ogujiuba. A must read!

 Onyeka and Azuka

ThisDay Style writer, Azuka Ogujiuba wrote an article on October 30th titled ‘A Blaze of Glory for 2Face’ where she referred to Toni Payne as a groupie. Music Legend Onyeka Onwenu decided to respond to the article.
Read it after the cut...


ThisDay Newspapers: Azuka Ogujiuba's Hatchet Job on Ms Toni Payne - A blaze of glory for Tuface - Saturday Oct 30, 2010. - By Onyeka Onwenu
  
I have rarely made it my business to respond to newspaper articles, but when I do, you can be sure that I have been sorely provoked.


You can also imagine that in nearly thirty years as an Entertainer, running the whole gamut of the industry as Singer/Songwriter, Actress, Broadcaster etc, I have had more than a fair share of unwarranted attacks. I have also witnessed others go through it, especially women. I have come to accept these attacks as some of the hazards of the job we do. There are people who are just jealous of others’ progress and who perhaps live vicariously, albeit with malicious intent, through the doings of those they envy. Some of these people happen to be journalists who by virtue of their profession, have the advantage of the pages of a newspaper or the air waves, as instruments of harassment and denigration.

That said, let me remind all, that I am a journalist and have unlimited respect for my profession and training. Nigerian journalists are among the best in the world and I am indeed proud to be one of them.

Nigeria is a society which professes to respect women, but in practice we do not. Our tradition is to keep them down, relegate them to the background where they are best seen and not heard. When they manage to break through the glass ceiling, striving to be themselves and excelling against all odds, we celebrate them, quite alright, but with an undertone of fear for their “brazen”, “aggressive” and “uppity” disposition. And as soon as the slightest opportunity presents itself, we quickly pull them down.

A journalist who never fails to disappoint in this regard is Mr Reuben Abati of the Guardian Editorial Board. On the issue of Nigeria’s First Ladies and their “Powers”, Abati’s language is almost always condescending and denigatory, to the extent that I am compelled to conclude that he harbours a deep resentment for women – for some reason. His last contribution to the Okirika Waterfront demolition debate and Her Excellency, Dame Jonathans’ expression of concern, earlier this year, comes readily to mind.

Quite a few journalists in the 80s and 90s made their names criticizing Onyeka Onwenu, mostly for no reason other than their wanting to be noticed. I refer to people like Azuka Jebosi and Ladi of Punch Newspapers, Mayor Akinpelu and Faj of the defunct Fame Magazine.

At a point, Dele Momudu, God bless him, was moved to admonish Faj, who, not so subtly had tried to rubbish my CD “Onyeka” inspite of the fact that it was adjudged to be a brilliant outing in 1992.
Mayor Akinpelu declared to all who cared to listen that he “could not stand Onyeka Onwenu” who according to him was indeed “finished”, as an Artiste. This was during the campaign for PMAN (Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria) Presidency, which pitted me against King Sunny Ade, in 1998. The Anti – Onyeka campaign continued with great intensity until I took a number of Entertainment Publications to court and won substantial amounts of money. These publications sought to damage my reputation. I was portrayed as a person of easy virtue, a prostitute, a trouble maker and an unserious Artiste. Hard to believe, is it not?

My crime was my audacity of purpose, outspokenness and insistence on being given my due respect. For displaying a modicum of self respect and restraint in my public conduct, I was labelled a snub, with the usual comment, “who does she think she is”.

Well, I was never one to back down from a challenge and I gave as good as I got. I made no apologies and I continued to be myself – self assured, focused and dedicated to my work. In due course and grudgingly, these journalists had no choice but to begin to show respect and appreciation for my person and my work.
In all these attacks, the most perplexing were the ones from a female journalist, the Queen of Junk, she was called, at the time. For some reason, she really had it in for me, other female Artistes and even fellow female journalists.

I had taken enough courses in psychology in college to realize that the attacks were coming from a sense of inadequacy, in herself. When her career of bitterness and vendetta took a nose dive and she couldn’t compete in an era where journalism of personal attack had lost its lure, I concluded that I was right.
And that brings me to Azuka Ogujiuba and Toni Payne.

Ms Toni Payne is my publicist and a young woman who impresses me with her zeal for work and excellent knowledge of the Nigerian Entertainment terrain with regards to what she does, which is publicism. She is respectful and conducts herself with decorum. She handles assignments with a seriousness that belies her young age. Ever since I came in contact with her, for the publicity of my Legend CD early this year, I have not ceased to be amazed by her appetite for work and sincerity of purpose.

To watch her pummelled on Azuka’s Saturday This Day column, week after week, and unnecessarily, has been a torture for me. Ms Payne has laughed off these obvious attacks but I am not prepared to do so.

In her article “A Blaze of Glory for Tuface”, in discussing the issue of Tuface’s Baby mothers and the “danger they portend to his career (an issue I most definitely do not want to delve into), Azuka manages, as usual, to draw in Toni Payne, whom she describes as a “Groupie”. This is for marrying the Artiste 9ice, I suppose. Hear Azuka, “Toni Payne who conspicuously falls into this category because of her undying and unimaginable love to be called “Celebrity” has finally created the biggest Rift or ‘BEEF’ as they say in the Nigerian Entertainment scene. Azuka goes on and on, wondering how Toni Payne could live with herself. She ends the tirade with this: “Some even suggest that 9ice’s decision to end their marriage was a smart move”.

My dear Azuka, if you have a thing for 9ice, why don’t you go after him and leave Toni Payne alone. You have become too obvious and deliberate in your attacks. This is not journalism but vendetta, unprovoked, unwarranted and unbearable for those of us who pay money to buy This Day on Saturdays.

Your Editor should now call you to order. Enough!

I had not intended to write this article. I had made a personal phone call to Ms Ogujiuba, to try and speak with her about her unrelenting attacks on Toni Payne. This is the conversation that ensued.
Me: “Hello! May I please speak with Azuka Ogujiuba?”
Azuka: Silence (there is some talking in the background).
Me: “Hello, my name is Onyeka Onwenu. Am I speaking to Azuka?”
Azuka: “Yes, what do you want?”
Me: “You seem not to know me but I really would like to talk with you about Toni Payne and the fact that…”
Azuka: Cuts in – “How did you even get my number?”
Me: “Oh I see that you are intent on being rude. Well, I will write your Editor instead. I don’t do rude” I switched off.

My song “One Love” has a line which says “living in the world is a struggle just staying alive” and that is true, particularly for a young, professional woman in Nigeria. The last thing she needs is a misdirected, ambitious and envious journalist, trying to put her down, ostensibly, because of her marriage choice.
I am not interested in Toni Payne’s private life and it is not my place to defend her choices but I do take exception to a journalist attacking someone for no good reason, particularly a woman. Azuka Ogujiuba, get a life and leave Toni Payne alone to live hers.

God bless you.
Onyeka Onwenu (MFR)

I don't care a whore is still a whore. Ok, let me stop.

I am starting to feel bad for Toni though bcos many people went hard on her including me. You know what, after it's said and done she's a human being and should be treated with respect whether she's a groupie or what not, that's her life.

I believe in any relationship it takes two people, so 9ice is 50% to be blamed and Toni is also 50%.

Btw, Onyeka is looking gorgeous as usual. Does she age?

funky said...

whats the meaning of 'groupie' pls?

Myne said...

Most columnists especially at the junior level only write what their editors want and what will sell papers. The babe is just doing her job and since TP is a public figure, it is only expected, she should be happy that her name gets inches and sells.

But this is not defending Azuka sha

Pamela said...

At Anonymous---Its easy to say a Whore is a Whore forgetting you as well have secrets you dare not say in public. And i mean this is obviously wore of a vendetta than journalism and the irony is its a woman trying to bring down another.Whcih is totally not right. Brings me to the topic nigerian Journalist who are they what are their pedigree the days of Onyeka are long gone now we have 3rd class graduates who the banks refuse to give jobs for not being FINE for watever reason going for the under paid job Journalist. and they earn their wages by taking sides and getting paid. So that thisday lady is a thwart and an inresponsible idiot who is not practising her profession.

Pam said...

I have always read Linda,s Blog and never been this pushed to comment. Weldone Onyeka. Linda tell that THISDAY GIRL i said i could Pimp her if she needs any footballer am sure she is craving for some attention and needs money.

Stop Hating!

who is to say 9ICE was not the problem.

Anonymous said...

@Myne
Really? She should be happy to be insulted and declared a "whore" like anon above just did?

I used to think Thisday was the NYT or Nigeria and not a rag. That kind of article does not belong in a reputable newspaper as far as I am concerned.

Onyeka Onwenu is one gorgeous woman.

MW, I'm quite disappointed at your comment saying toni payne should be happy. Did u stop to think that you could be in her shoes one day.
I commend Onyeka Onwenu for the letter she wrote. Toni Payne married 9ice, the marriage broke up - how does that make her a groupie?
The bigger picture of it is the fact that in the Nigerian society, the woman is still directly and indirectly slandered in divorce. That a marriage breaks up does not call into question the integrity of the parties involved. If anything, we could as well call 9ice a gold digger or some other names.

chinwe said...

i really like Onyeka's article. It is generally known that Azuka is a very razz woman with little sense of decorum. all those trips thisday style has been sponsoring in the name of fashion show must be confusing her. I don't think her sort of journalism is in line with thisday newspapers. she should probably move camp to somewhere like Tribune (if it still exists).
And Nigerians in their self-righteous, na-me-holy-pass oversabi style will defend Azuka. Toni Payne is a businesswoman with a life. Only trashy journalists make a living out of putting other people down.

Uche said...

3 weeks ago, I read about this Azuka and how much of a freaking pain she was causing D'banj. I had never heard of her before. Now she is freaking Onyeka out with her rant on Toni Payne. Something ain't right and This day should look into it. We love Nigeria for our freedom of speech but that does not include unwarranted and unnecessary bashing. we should Remember there is a term known as VERBAL ASSAULT. I rest my case...

Ade_Cool said...

For one..this girl has no respect..Onyeka is like a national treasure...this woman is like say the Diana Ross of Naijja..
Now I can understand why Dbanj almost had her beaten up...
As a Journalist you free to print whatever but when it gets personal that's when you abuse your position..especially when we all know Entertainers and Journalists are in each other's pockets..

chinwe said...

Ade_Cool, Dbanj doesn't have any right to have anybody beaten up for any thing. Stop yarning dust abeg. smh

Nigerian Film and TV Addict said...

azuka has no respect..plain and simple..babes needs to be taught a lesson...and trust me she will get it...she has stepped on people's toes. it's not just about writing or saying ur mind but u need to be smart/constructive/polite with it...but she's just rude in the way she talk, writes, and acts. i agree with her story on toni payne but girl is rude...

Tatababe said...

Wow! Very valid points she made here especially the last paragraph with the quote from her song "One Love," hopefully Azuka read this..

Anonymous said...

This is so well written, my respect for Onyeka Onwenu just went up a notch. However, I feel like 9ice and Toni Payne put themselves out there to face public ridicule. I'm sure everyone remembers when they released a "public statement" about their divorce..totally unnecessary. I feel like if they had just quietly gotten a divorce, they(especially Toni) wouldn't be getting so much hassle.

Anonymous said...

Why not sue her for defamatory? She want to be famous (notice me) by all means, rubbish!

Anonymous said...

This Day needs to call the "raz" Azuka to order. She is obviously jealous of Toni Payne.I admire Onyeka for that letter because some women like to pull fellow women down out of jealousy.

YENIH'S WORLD said...

I'm happy someone finally brought this out. Why call her a whore or groupie? Is it because she got married to 9ice or divorced 9ice? I don't know why in a very clear two-sided story, everyone seems to take sides with 9ice without giving Toni Payne the chance to even speak out.
As for Azuka, I think as a journalist, you're meant to educate, empower and enlighten your community through your stories and not confuse them with petit gossips and blatant lies.
A whore is still a whore?@ anon? How well do you know her? Are you in a righteous position to lebel her a whore? Anyway, don't forget every saint has a past and every sinner has a future. Whatever happened in the past, she's moved on from that and living her life now. Let's just let her be.

silk said...

Thats obviously not journalism. Is she a trained journalist? well, speaking from experience, i doubt she is. Azuka is obviously struggling for cheap fame and she is doing it d wrong way. pls get a life Azuka, u suck, big time! Aunty Onyeka, pls dnt mind her jo, she is retarded in reasoning, due to her overwhelming passion for cheap fame and money. besides, u are really looking beautiful.

NigeriaPolitricks.com said...

This Azuka Ogujiuba girl should SERIOUSLY get a LIFE!
What's the point in calling Toni Payne a groupie? She is an independent, self assured, business woman whose only mistake was ever marrying that douchebag called 9ice; who've stood idly by while these hoodrats "journalists" denigrated the mother of his child...What a shame?!
BIG UPs to Onyeka Onwenu for standing up for what is RIGHT!...and against this tabloid journalism of name calling of a woman whom we should all be giving respect and credit for making 9ice what he is today!
Maybe this "diarrhea of the mouth" Azuka Ogujiuba 'journalist' should adopt this saying as her journalistic creed going forward....If YOU dont have anything NICE to say about people...STFU!!!

NINA said...

SWEET SWEET COMMENT BY ONYEKA....AZUKE OR WHATEVER SHE CALLS HER SELF IS A TRIFLING LUNATIC..WHO IS NOT A JOURNALIST BUT A WHOREMONGER...THAT IS SEEKING CHEAP POPULARITY...SOMEONE WHO CANNOT EVEN ADEQUATELY EXPRESS HERSELF AND DARES TO HAVE THIS NERVE ....SHE HAS TAKEN THIS DAY DOWN TO THE THRESHOLD OF DEPRAVITY AND MEANINGLESSNESS...IF TONI PAYNE AND 9ICE GOT MARRIED AND DIVORCED HOW IS SHE TO KNOW THE DYNAMICS OF THE RELATIONSHIP???
I GIVE A LOT OF KUDOS TO ONYEKA..AND IF THIS HOOLIGAN IS NOT CAREFUL ..THEY WILL DRAG IT OUT IN COURT...
I TRULY APPLAUD ONYEKA FOR STANDING UP FOR HER FRIEND..SHE IS A WOMAN WITH GREAT INTEGRITY, SUBSTANCE AND BRAVADO WHO WILL WILL NOT STAND FOR INJUSTICE FROM LOW LIVES WHO MASQUERADE AS "JOURNALISTS" IT IS AT TIMES LIKE THIS I WISH I WERE IN NIGERIA TO SPEAK UP AND ADDRESS DIRE ISSUES LIKE THIS....WHAT IS THE GLORY IN CHARACTER ASSASSINATION? WHATEVER HAPPENED TO "POLITE SOCIETY?" I COULD GO ON AND ON..BUT AZUKE OR WHATEVER SHE CALLS HERSELF IS NOT WORTH ANYONE OF SUBSTANCE'S TIME...AS FOR THIS DAY..YOU ARE FAST LOSING YOUR SUPPOSED INTEGRITY WITH THIS LOW CLASS TRIFLING ABSURDITY..THAT IS THE LEVEL OF ROADSIDE SOFT SELL MAGAZINES!!!

Anonymous said...

I feel onyeka's ache and pain to the point that she twitches to defend Toni Payne...but people, hmmmmm, i aint going to front, Toni, as much as i had so much respect for her made it just easier for every tom dick and harry to take a hot dump on her. I sitll can't get over the fact that she even open yansh for that razz ibadan boy..let alone procreate, marry and now left high and dry by dat camel lookin freak a.k.a 9ice. na the pain dey make Azuka wan beef the issue die...lol

Ejike said...

In all these Tony Payne-Rugged-9ice issue, the question I keep asking those bashing Payne is what if she was your sister, what if u were Tony, what will u do and how will u feel? As for 9ice, i heard the reason he got that name 9ic in the first place was bcos back in the days he was said 2 be nice to a fault, so the question now is what happened 2 the nice 9ice cos 4 sure, 9ice wasn’t sounding nice in the recorded conversation with Rugged. Did his new social status make him ruthless? (The office makes the man).

As 4 those blaming Rugged 4 making the infamous phone conversation, the question is, what would u have done if u found yourself in a position where a scandal was beginning to affect your relationship with friends, people and business associates?

Onyeka Onwenu has succeeded in making Azuka very popular cos I for one never heard of her b4, but now I know her. I hope she’s now getting the attention she craves.

@ Myne Whitman...really?Seriously?

@ Anonymous 9:56 were you a member of Toni & 9ice marriage.It is so funny how people are ready to point finger when we dont know what happened and we are not in their marriage.You said you feel sorry for Toni but you still had to call her a whore-right?I guess calling names makes you feel better about yourself.SMH

Onyeka was so apt at describing the way Naija women are treated.I have realized that most times, we women tear each other down more than the male folk.We are always ready to label the next woman a whore,to call her a bitch, a wanna be or some other degrading name.

A marriage broke up, a friendship was torn apart and in all this that uncouth Azuka decided to write that Toni payne caused the biggest rift.Is this Azuka girl on crack?Toni lost her freaking marriage for pete sake and you dare blame her for being the cause of the failed r/ship between ruggedman & 9ice.Are you kidding me?
Azuka is the most unprofessional,razz and uncouth human being in the world.Whoever gave her a job really needs to have their head examined. Her employers need to call her to order.In this day of Magazines like, Flair & Genevieve it is disheartening to see a woman tear down another. Thank you Onyeka we need more people like you.

this is not the first time I am reading negative remarks from Azuka to other Nigerian artistes... Azuka first, should respect other women in their professions. TP might have had an issue with 9ice but who is she to condemn her... is she innocent too? We all work hard everyday in our various professions and we ought to give respect but NO! we bow down to men and look down on women.
I have experienced women looking down on professional women because they think they committed prostitution and all sort of nonsense....

I really commend Onyeka for coming out and defending TP because we women should stand by and support other women. But I am not surprised that Azuka and other journalists will stoop so low and insult other women so as to sell their rubbish on magazines....

There is a thin line between a journalist and a backbitter...

Thank you

i must say,Ms Azuka has crossed the line,that cannot be described as good journalism...and if we have to check it out, who actually is the groupie here...azuka or Toni payne? Toni being the strong black woman that she is, walked out of a marriage that wasnt working for her to get a life,build a good business brand and is doing quite well. azuka should just shut it up...and this even goes to all the crap people Thisday employs as so-called "journalists" or "contributors" ...go check out their credentials. i for one know of a certain new "contributor" who was put there because of her pretty face and not being cerebral or having any journalistic prowess permit me to say. Thisday editor, we love your paper and we want to continue reading it, so putting up articles from half baked graduates wont cut it for you guys...#nuffsaid

Myne Whitman SHUT THE FUCK UP if you aint got nuffin smart to say. Some women really do say some stupid shit

Unknown said...

A journalist is paid to do a job. Like Myne said, Azuka Ogujiuba is only doing hers. She probably did not pick the topic and have to answer to an editor that expects papers to sell somehow. This does not however excuse her alleged bashing of Toni Payne. On the other hand, if she actually responded they way Ms Onwenu said she did when she called her, then the lady does need to think her reactions through. All said, from a journalistic point of view, this is serious publicity for all involved and should not be dragged out too far.

Azuka,im sure ure reading all these coments,some in favour,some against.I AM AGAINST!!!!...Do u have a mother? How much respect do u accord her?.Being rude doesnt pay Star or no star.Oyenka is old enough 2be ur mother.For a lady u lack respect nd God help ur man and people around u.Leave Tony Payne alone!!!! im sure uve got ur own problems too....I expected more from This Day but this...this is rubbish,arrant nonsense

shola pacheco said...

Personally I think Onyeka Owenu did really well...I mean people should give Toni Payne a break.she could be anyone's sister and I think it's really unfair for anyone to address her as a whore.

Let her be, she has been through a lot already and as for the female journalist; what happened to girl power? what happened to women supporting women?

And No @myne, Bad publicity is bad publicity...Toni payne should not be happy her name is in the press if its for something bad.

Life is too short to make other people's lives unbearable.. I know the journalist in question will not write trash if her bosses do not approve with it.

Toni Payne its high time u get a good lawyer and start getting paid for this trashy articles!!!

Thanks for publishing this linda.....

Been a minute linda..hope ur well honey?

first and foremost, i admire onyeka as an artiste and hardworker. and in all sincerity, she should not have responded to azuka's "tirade" as she is not toni's mother. first of all, if azuka is a known "junk" journalist, then she should be ignored. responding to her will give azuka the added strength to exercise more power in writing about naija celebrities and their perceived 'flawed' private lives. this is my opinion. :)

aunty onyeka is a woman of credible character.my STALLION. thank God one person can stand up for TP. does it mean if ur marriage breaks up u cant have a life? Azuka, thank God u r a woman, what goes around comes around!!!, if u r married and happy in ur home thank God, but if u r not? its up 2 u. noboby ever prayed for any bad thg 2 happen in her home, especially breakup that has a child 2 show for it. i dont know TP, but i respect her composure in all this, i wonder how she pulled it through, me i no fit o...TP, dont worry ur time will come. u will get a man that will appreciate u, i dont know u, but i have dis believe u are a good girl,u r just a victim of bad press.av always fought for u anytime such comes up.God is ur strength.

Azuka is one rude woman..and guess what???? that is why is still single....( yes i said it ) the way her mouth runs,which man will want a woman like that in his house.....people like that grow old with alotta enemies and alone,and wrinkly..........lol...and who is her mother????? i am sure she doesnt respect her mum too..goes without saying.....

mama uche said...

please stop calling Myne Whitman out like that jor. And if you must, at least try doing it in a respectful way like the decent adults that you all are(I assume) and not saying things like "I thought you were intelligent" "I'm disappointed in you" c'mon!!!

Anyways, I like that Onyeka stood up for the girl and did so in style, even though most of the letter was about her. LOL

Biko...how can TP be a groupiee??? she was already into the fashion industry before 9ice was discoveed. Rubbish!!!

chetablog said...

@Linda thanks for the response. Now I can respond. If Toni is a groupie, I want to ask all of you what you call a bunch of women who work for a magazine owner that has slept with each one of them sotay he had to ship one abroad to go have a baby. The funny thing is that the people who throw stones are often mutha4kers who do the illest things. A word or a few sentences is enough for the wise

TP WAS ALREADY SUCCESSFUL HERE IN LOS ANGELES WITH HER OWN COSMETIC AND FASHION LINE. CHIAGOZIE HOW CAN U PLAY DEVIL'S ADVOCATE SAYING HER BOSSES TOLD HER TO DO THAT..IS SHE A ZOMBIE THAT HAS NO EDITING CONTROL WHATSOEVER??
AS FOR HER BOSS NDUKA ALLOWING HER CALL SOMEONE A GROUPIE. HE THAT IS ONE OF THE MOST CHRONIC WOMANIZERS AROUND, THAT LOVES MESSING AROUND WITH DIFFERENT WOMEN...WHAT A DOUBLE STANDARD!!!
TONI PAYNE PLEASE DRAG HER TO COURT AND LET JUSTICE BE SERVED...THE NIGERIAN LEGAL SYSTEM SEEMS TO BE WORKING RELATIVELY WELL.

I'm sure I understand you Myne...I'll die if i see one more TP vs 9ce story again, sincerely, we're doing these people a free PR favour just talking about them at all.Plus, Onyeka Rocks!

mama uche,
i thought i was the only one that noticed?
Onyeka likes the sound of her own voice.Half of the letter was about her.the woman's ego is so massive.Mourinho would be jealous.

@Myne Whitman, what a terrible disgrace you are! Now, we shall all call you out on how you STOLE sugabelly's idea for a website featuring naija writers.
I hope and pray one of the journalists writes about you and your thieving ways. I am sure you want to promote your book and receive positive feedback, right? from now on, the only feedback you will receive will be of the negative sort since any publicity good or bad is good enough for you as long as you are in the papers abi.

Imagine the nonsense, how dare you say she should be happy are name is in the papers as though that is what she lives for. STUPID!!!

Good people stop bothering yourself.This razz Azuka girl cannot be bothered about this issue.This is her current FB status

"Biggest LOL...my fone has been ringing none stop becos of dat...honestly,u knw me well l can't b bodered...like l always say it is a free world, such things don't boder me, all l knw is dat " WORK HAS 2 B DONE...AND I VE 2 WRITE" In... short, l neva get time go read wetin she write o wen l commot for deadline/production pressure, l go come balance well read am wit a bottle of chilled white wine. U no say xmas dey come, na money l dey poshu first no bi madam Onyeka mata!!!!!!"

OMG!See how she spelt "bothered". This girl is a lost cause and doesnt really care what anyone says.She has made up her mind to live without decorum.She has convinced herself she is practicing real journalism. She wants to make a name for herself by being a controversial person and she is thriving in it.She has hardened herself and doesnt care whose feet she steps on o., SMH

Since it is a free world i wonder how she'd feel if someone used her single parent status on her and insulted her child.

Why are successful women often labelled derogatory names like whore, prostitutes etc?

It's so painful & I do pity Toni Payne. Why? I've been a victim of this kind of verbal assaults. I happen to be the only female unit head in my company and every idiot believes 'she's there cos she's been sleeping with the CEO'! Pathetic isn't it? If this could happen to me a non-celebrity, TP should expect more of this rubbish from a retarded society.

To Azuka: he who has no sin should be the only one to throw a stone!

To TP: I am a firm believer in walking out of a marriage which does not work. After 3 kids, I walked out of my marriage because I could not cope with polygamy. People are bound to criticize and run u down while they do worse things in the dark but I tell u, please urself before others. Goodluck.

To Onyeka: I love your piece. I admire your courage. Thank u for standing up for the women folk.

nikky said...

This is just bad of this so called journalist, as a journalist you are not supposed to take sides, ur job is to inform and report stories with facts u can take to the bank, because if u or ur newspaper is sued u guyz could lose a lot of money,ur story maybe juicy now and generate a lot of money for the newspaper but if anyone should drag Azuka to court for slander i seriously doubt if thisday will back her up.

As 4 d issue of toni & 9ice i agree that they put themselves out there and something like this was defiantly bound to happen but i am yet to see anyone calling 9ice out for his role in the divorce, after all it takes two to tango.

In Nigeria it's obviously still an abomination for a woman to leave her husband even if there was a mutual agreement from both parties to divorce the woman is still looked at as a whore which is just sad, women in Nigeria do not have a equal playing field with men when it comes to matters like this.

Have you achieved a tenth of what she has achieved?

Proving to be the local rat that you are,if onyeka were my mum,I WOULD OWE YOU ONE DIRTY STINGING SLAP TO RE-ARRANGE YOUR SENSES FOR YOU.

Your parents need to be ashamed of themselves,and i am worried on behalf of your BASTARD child.(HOW DOES THAT FEEL)
How do you train her?
To disrespect her elders?
To "chat" back at those she should respect?
Is that meant to be cool?
Anyway--monkey see,monkey do,before long,your BASTARD would start slapping you and poking her finger in your face.


Azuka belongs to a breed of emerging naija fantasists who let go on the pages of "should have been classy" papers masquerading as journalists.

What does this one know about anything?

You need to be ashamed of yourself,its hard enough been a woman in this world,but catty bitches like you do nothing but hate,hate hate..no wonder you are soooo ugly.
BOTH INSIDE AND OUT

SO what Toni or whatever her name is, dated,married and had a kid for 9ice...marriage cracked,they are seperated..GET OVER IT.

But of course YOU wouldnt understand the concept of MARRIAGE would you?

Its a strange alien concept to you.

I guess it would make you feel better if like you,she spread her thighs for random men and produced bastardos.(HOW DO YOU LIKE BEEN JUDGED NOW?)

Tomi you just hit the hammer on the head love ur post. The ugly bitch is a wannabe, how can someone that has a bastard child, sleeps around with random men and her boss for money be so virile and so jealous of others she thinks that by pulling pple down that she would be popular. Classless whore. What is her claim to fame being a whore and giving birth to a bastard. Pple who live in glass houses shdnt throw stones. Who is the father of her bastard I can tell u for free that she doesn't know her baby daddy the baby must have been conceived on the night she slept with all 8 of her sugar daddies. I patiently await her downfall and it will soon come.
Onyeka Onwenu I really admire her more for standing up for young girl who life has become a media circus just for marrying the wrong man. The groupie in this story is no other than than the whore bastard producing AZUKA.

Anonymous said...

Hmmmm.... Bunch of haters starting up a new crusade here. I know this Tomi girl is gonna spit fire here, like Azuka murdered your ass in the past life. In between, I think Onyeka Onwenu is trying to get some cheap publicity. Her popularity waned a great deal over the years; so it is understandable that she is trying to get her ass back on track. Well, I wish all of you good luck at trying to get Azuka down.

Onyeka Onwenu still trying to be in the limelight by all means...of course you defend the helpless one Toni Payne and we will all sing you praises that you are wonderful person...didn't Onyeka herself sleep around?

I have come across Azuka before, and she is the most sour, dour, rude, classless skank I ever had the displeasure to meet. In fact I had to walk her off my premises, she was so rude and I'm not prone to anger. How she got a job in journalism remains a mystery. I'm so glad someone of Onyeka Onwenu's stature has had the gumption to knock her down. I hope it affects her career accordingly as she has no business writing in the English language, or giving opinions for that matter as she wouldn't know style or class if a Vogue van ran into her!

BLAME NIGERIA FOR PRODUCTS LIKE AZUKA .I FRIEND OF MY EMAILED THIS TO ME AND AFTER READING IT I HAD TO SAY AZUKA IS A PRODUCT OF A BROKEN DOWN SOCIETY.AZUKA WHO WE KNOW CAN NEVER BE FIRED BY NDUKA FOR REASONS KNOWN TO HIM ONCE WARMED HIS BEDS LIKE OTHERS YOU NOTICED I SAID BEDS FROM EVERYWHERE AROUND NIGERIA SHE WARMED HIS BEDS, THEN SHE BECAME HIS PIMP TAKING YOUNG GIRLS TO HIM EVERYWHERE HE GOES.RUTH GOT RID OF HER A LONG TIME AGO AND OF COURSE NDUKA USES AZUKA FOR HIS DIRTHY DEALS OF EXTORTION AND ANYTIME HE WANTS ANYTHING FROM A GOVERNOR THE PUSSY KEZAIH AND DISTRIBUTOR WILL HELP HIM DO IT. AZUKA HAS SLEPT WITH MOST OF THESE SOUTHERN GOVERNORS AND IT IS A SHAME TO THINK THAT THIS SLUT IS ABUSING TP IN THE PAPERS. AZUKA HAS ALWAYS NURSED A THING FOR KONWASO CROONER AND SHE IS ALREADY SLEEPING WITH HIM. A WOMAN WITH A BASTARD CHILD HAD A BABY AND PINNED IT ON AN INNOCENT MAN. AZUKA WHO HATCHED HAVING THIS BABY SET THE MAN UP AND THE DICK HEAD WHO FORGOT HIS CONDOM FELL FOR IT AND GOT HIM. LINDA YOU ARE DOING A GREAT JOB.AT MY BANK YESTERDAY WE WERE LOOKING AT AZUKA'S PICTURE AND WE NOTICED THAT SHE NOW LOOKS LIKE AN OLD RETIRED PROSTITUTE THIS AZUKA ALSO SLEPT WITH OUR OLD MD SHE WILL REMEMBER. AZUKA SLOW DOWN ON YOUR WEIGHT LOSS COS YOUR FEET AND THIGHS ARE STILL MASSIVE AND FEET LOOKS LIKE ITS SWOLLEN AND YOUR HANDS LOOKED LIKE IT HAS SOME LOOSE MEAT. AZUKA , AZUKA YOU SEE WHEN SOMEONE COME FROM A VERY POOR HOME THEY SHOULD HAVE THE SPIRIT OF HUMILITY FIRST AND FOREMOST AND THEN YOU WILL GROW. THIS IS NOT AZUKA'S LAST VICTIM .NDUKA IS LIKING ALL THIS BELIEVE ME.I KNOW NDUKA VERY WELL MASTER EXTORTIONIST,CROOK AND BROUGHT AZUKA UP VERY WELL. ZUBY LIKE SHE IS KNOWN BY HER FRIENDS IS A SINKING SHIP AND SHE WILL DRAG ANYBODY ALONG WITH HER.
NIGERIA HAS BIGGER PROBLEM THAN AZUKA.WHEN YOU SEE AZUKA DRESS YOU KNOW THAT SHE IS DEPRIVED CHILD I WONDER WHAT KIND OF MOHTER THAT GAVE BIRTH TO THIS SLUT.AZUKA IS A VICTIM OF CIRCUMSTANCES AND I KNOW HER NEXT DESTINATION IS THE MENTAL WARD. GOODLUCK TO HER BACKERS KEEP MAKING A FOOL OF YOURSELVES.

this tory don become another matter. see as comment full ground for linda blog. linda congratulobia o .... in fact e surprise me say ur site never crash on top this matter.
anyways in proper queen's english. So Toni made a mistake - and so what? It happens in life. She MARRIED this 9ice, there was some chemistry between them obviously. Something went wrong which we really don't know - just speculations, rumours etc. Toni could be as innocent as a baby in this matter. And 9ice even with his lack of integrity and not even providing a covering cloth for his SON, could be the most misinformed and manipulated by jealous people person. There are a lot of possibilities here.
The press release was not released by toni payne. Now with that automatic publicity, any of you women here, especially with a high profile job like Toni's would find yourself in a position where you have to defend yourself and provide excuses EVERYDAY.
If you were not high-profile, just a regular market woman at oyingbo, everyone in your neighborhood will insinuate and you know what, they will always blame the woman. Even the woman whose husband came home drunk and beat her till she lost her pregnancy, people will talk. Why do you think people stay put in abusive relationships? Sometimes she leaves and she can't talk. Cos people will be like - afterall she has left, why is she spoiling the name of her children's father. So she becomes a shadow of herself, an outcast in her society.
Unless she is a woman, perhaps educated, usually with some resources and family support; who refuses to give in to that old-age intimidation and who speaks out for the truth and in defense of herself. With that she risks slander against her name.
Toni has a situation with 9ice, where she was being accused of all sorts; even if she had cheated - did it have to be public knowledge. A man that should have been her clothing (in marriage and even in divorce) is there being as uncharitable as possible. Keeping quiet in her shoes doesn't work either - people already have opinions and besides her job involves being out there.
To cut the long story short, groupie????? I suggest that Toni SUE Azuka, although she risks talk from people who would say oh she is just trying to get her names in the papers. Does anyone get the unfairness of this situation.
Two things stand out about Azuka.
Her behaviour towards Onyeka on the phone and her facebook update. They paint the picture of a trampy dog and there I rest my case.

This so called Azuka girl has had it coming for a long time . She has a bastard child for some old guy during a one night stand . Ruth Osime sacked her from the style team and since then she has been struggling to be relevant with her vain picture on facebook . Everything about her is totally razz. A blackmailer ( i have been a victim before) and hater. Did you see the time she put Funmi Iyanda down on her page?Fair ground indeed . D Banj should have given you a knock on your head. Tell me what have you achieved in your 38 years? All these pple you slander have something to say from themselves . They are not salary earners like yourself , so deal with it .

As for those saying that Toni put herself out there to be ridiculed by releasing a statement to the press about her separation, you've got it wrong. Toni had no hand in that, in fact she got to know about the statement after it was posted all over the internet and people started calling her. The press release came from 9ice's manager.

As for Azuka, people have opened her yansh small by small here. Like I said before, who is the real groupie/whore? Someone who dated a man publicly then married him, or someone who jumps from bed to bed and collects cash from the dresser when she's done? Azuka is thirsty for fame, since she has no real talent of her own and can't get anyone with talent to claim her publicly, after acrobatics in bed; she uses the only option left, attack people to bring attention to herself.

Not Its quite obvious that most of the comments posted about Azuka are quite conceited and its because most of the people leaving them are charlatans.
I'm not defending what Azuka did but weather we like it or not she is a journalist and that is what they do. Toni herself caused this for putting her divorce in the public.
The Nigerian public has always been known to be filled with psychophants and this is no exception which is really sad. If Toni had a problem with it why didn't she sue?
Onyeka herself is conceited and that's the only reason why you defend your staff. I'm a 100 percent sure if this article wasn't written by Onyeka we won't be seeing one sided comments.
You do not defend someone based on your love for them but because what the person did was right.

@Last Anoynymous
For your information, Toni DID NOT put information of her SEREPATION not DIVORCE out there. 9ice did. My question to you all is have you noticed that they are seperated and not divorced, in fact we havnt seen any proof that they will divorce. If they get back together, how will people like Azuka feel? thats my question

excuse me?azuka is 42yrs old this year,thats what causes her desperation to hook anyone fast.

she has fucked too many pple she cant remember.infact her baby daddy ran away from Nigeria cos she was blackmailing him to leave his wife and marry her,when hes eyes cleared,he ran away.
i know the baby daddy and you need to hear what he thinks of this prostitute.
of cos nduka the dog will not sack azuka,why wud he wen she the only babe you can fuck from pussy and anus at the same time,her job at thisday goes deeeeeeeeeeeeeep down.

azukas life is a failure so she attacks successful pple,she will do another one just wait.

my pple say your mind shes telling people on fb that shes doesnt care but trsut me shes reading here like her life depends on it.

Geez, Nigerians are such pretenders and the biggest gossipers. They talk mess behind ur back and then come out like they are ur biggest supporter, no wonder the country is not moving forward.

It's obvious that TP wanted the fame and money. She just rushed into everything so quick and it backfired on her big time. Hopefully, she learned the hard way.

From day one, I was suspicious of her and 9ice relationship/marriage. I called her a whore(maybe not the right word) not bcos she married and divorced but bcos she dated men just for the fame and money. So, she got what she wanted.

At the same time, I respect her hard work and she deserves respect like everybody else. I mean that's what comes with popularity, you put yourself out there, and expect to get double exposure whether positive or negative.

P.S she's no different than many girls out there who marry men for fame and money. Actually, she's better than most girls, she works hard for her money.

@myne people usually stay stupid things under d anon tag but you foolishly did yours with ur name. U got what you deserved. Had no idea you were an idea thief. Maybe ur book sef, na tif you tif am.
As for Azuka, so she is 38? if she hasn't learnt anything all these years, then she will never learn. A fool at 38 will likely die a fool.
For the person who said Onyeka is looking for cheap publicity for standing up for another woman, In years to come you can never come anywhere near her.
Finally Azuka is not a journalist abeg. She knows what she is. I no fit shout.

stella said...

@ano 8.58am, shut up you are the charlatan. You are an idiot for calling pple names for saying the truth abt a well know whore who has no business showing her face in public. She is not a journalist but a gossip monger, TP is not and wouldn't be the last person to be at the receiving end of that slut`s venom tongue. You defend pple because u believe in them know them well and also is rite to do when you feel that the person has been unfair judged. Most pple don't even know the real TP if ur base ur perception of pple by what u read in newspapers you end up being very schocked and disappointed when you meet them in real life and discover they are not what the press has painted them out to be. Slandering pple to make a buck, is the lowest form of inferiority complex and lack of self worth. 38 years bastard producing slut. I applaud Onyeka Onwenu for standing up for TP. Never been a big fan of TP, but enough already let the poor girl be.

SHE DOESN'T NEED 9ICE TO MAKE HER AND FROM WHAT I HEARD FROM PEOPLE CLOSE TO THEM SHE WAS ADVISING 9ICE TO MAKE SURE HE SAVE HIS MONEY FOR A RAINY DAY DUE TO SOME MEMBERS OF HIS FAMILY REAPING HIM OFF(9ICE IS VERY NAIVE)..SHE IS EDUCATED AND A DOWN TO EARTH PERSON.(WHY 9ICE WHEN THERE ARE EDUCATED MEN LIKE HER? AM SORRY TONI,IF YOU ARE READING THIS) I CAN TELL YOU THAT SHE IS NOT ARROGANT AND VERY FUNNY AFTER MEETING HER AND 9ICE AT HIS HOUSTON SHOW.. IF NOT WHY WOULD SHE EVEN BE WITH SOMEONE LIKE 9ICE? I FEEL SHE IS STILL PROTECTING HIM BY NOT GOING TO THE MEDIA ABOUT WHAT TRULY HAPPENED ABOUT THEIR BREAKUP. I KNOW IT WASN'T ABOUT THE SONG OR RUGGEDMAN. I HEARD SHE COULDN'T TAKE HIS INFIDELITY WITH WOMEN WHEN HE IS ON TOUR AND SHE DOESN'T GET ALONG WITH HIS "PIMP" MANAGER(DEHINDE).. THAT IS A WOMAN I WOULD LOVE ON MY SIDE TO PROTECT ME BY TAKING SHIT FROM THE MEDIA...LOL! AZUKA TRIED TO PIN HER DAUGHTER(CHIDERA) ON A MARRIED MAN SHE WAS DATING BUT UNFORTUNATELY FOR HER THE DUDE WAS SMART ENOUGH TO KNOW THAT THIS HEFFA WAS TRYING TO TAKE HIM TO THE CLEANERS. THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME FOR AZUKA'S RANTING. I HEARD SHE'S TRYING TO GET WITH 9ICE BY MAKING TONI LOOK BAD IN THE MEDIA BUT HE IS NOT INTERESTED IN HER AND SHE TRIED THE SAME WITH D'BANJ AND WAS ALMOST WACKED IN KENYA. SHE SHOULD FOCUS ON HER POOR DAUGHTER AND BE A GOOD EXAMPLE FOR HER WHILE SHE IS GROWING UP. AZUKA CLAIMED SHE WON ELITE NIGERIA MODELING CONTEST AND WAS GIVEN A BLACK S CLASS MERCEDES BUT A CLOSE FRIEND OF AZUKA SAID SHE WAS LYING AND ALSO USING TONI TO GENERATE READERS FOR HER SATURDAY PAGE ON THIS DAY..

Azuka, and all the other runs-gals employed under the ThisDay style segment like Konye who is obviously fucking Nduka, ought to be sacked ! Journalist my backside,mscheeew!madam plagiarism! copies all articles off the 'net.yet has the audacity to be called contributor! these people did not graduate outta school-living on salaries of less than 40,000 and living executive lifestyles! Azuka is really a crass uncouth bitch and i agree with @ Bo, u need to meet her in person to know. the madam-groupie herself calling another person one. kudos to Onyeka.

The Azuka girl doesnt care about all this noise yall are making.I think she will be rather pleased cos it will make her think she has arrived.She likes the controversy and she is happy her name is in our mouth. She needs to be careful before she wrecks her self.Very few people have something positive to say about her.Abeg Azuka slow down.It may seem all well and good with this publicity but your very horrible attitude will come back and bite you in the ass.

and for the person saying Onyeka was never married...guess what?It is a choice to be married or not.A woman can have kids without getting married.I know you cant comprehend it but DEAL with.Women can make such choices too you know

Yes I AM TOMI,and why would i not be surprised if you are the butt-boy off the last "azuka vs dbanj" story.
Azuka murdered WHOSE ass?I laugh in razz---
I DARE AZUKA to go there with me.
I JUST DARE HER.
IF AT ANY POINT IN TIME THERE IS A REASON FOR MY STORY TO GET OUT THERE,I DARE AZUKA TO BE THE NUISANCE TO SPILL IT.

THAT would be the LAST story she would write.I PROMISE I WOULD RUN HER OUT OF LAGOS,BACK TO HER VILLAGE, TO BE SELLING PEPPER DURING THE DAY AND REGALING THE PEOPLE AT NIGHT WITH TALES OF " MY PEOPLE,WHEN I GO LAGOS,NA DIS I DO,NA DAT I DO"
Feel free to quote me.
Better listen tight,girls like Azuka to people like me,are not people to be reckoned with.We just humor their existence.Thats right,EXISTENCE,abi na life shey dey live??

I also suspect you are
ANONYMOUS 2;19 AM OR SO

You need to learn to read.
THE WHOLE WORLD knows that AZUKA is a whore who sleeps around,NEVER married,had a BASTARD for the first mugu she could pin IT down on.YET you now compare TONIs situation to hers,via Madamn Onyekas life choices??

DID YOU RIDE THE SHORT YELLOW BUS TO SCHOOL???
HOW does the situation even flow into one another??

EVERYONE knows Madam Onyeka to be a single mother--she never drew attention to herself over it,EXCEPT when backward remedially intelligent donuts like you do so.
SHE has done nothing,BUT celebrate a fellow woman,A YOUNG ONE AT THAT,WHO MADE FALTERING STEPS AT HER FIRST ATTEMPT AT MARRIAGE.

IF MADAM ONYEKAS CASE WAS THAT OF MISERY LOVING COMPANY,WOULD SHE NOT SUPPORT AZUKA SO AS TO RUN TONI DOWN??SINCE IN YOUR CASE TONI IS THE "ROTTEN EGG"

Please try to be making sense ehn..i know its hard.

Things like Azuka have abused that saying the PEN BEEN MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD.
Ever since gutter journalism became the norm--
BUT then HOW would anyone expect her to know any better?
IS SHE CLASSIFIED AS A JOURNALIST??
ON WHAT PLANET?
PLUTO? URANUS??

Her cockroach power lies in her "stories"--her "oh so groun-breaking,life changing" stories.
And we know what happens to cockroaches.

I am so sorry to all true literary/Journalism folks for what i am about to write as i know it is an insult to group AZUKA in the same category as you.
Hear me out though....Women like Funmi Iyanda,Chimamanda Adichie,Flora Nwapa,Betty Irabor,Bola Attah,Helen Ovbiagele,Uche Eze(Bella Naija)women who have used their pens/websites/magazines as their voices over time.Women who have written uplifting things,who have exposed the world to a better side of the AFRICAN WOMAN(one of the most ridiculed and under-represented minorities in the world),and the AFRICAN.
WOMEN LIKE THESE ones,who do not and have never given into dirty "rofo-rofo" situations that area-girls like AZUKA are known for.

NOW I ASK YOU,ALL THOSE SUPPORTING AZUKA--WHO WOULD YOU RATHER YOUR DAUGHTERS GROW UP TO BE LIKE??

Azuka is NOT that girl that can articulate herself properly in any situation--evidence is her so called face-book comment.
People like that resort to an "i don't give a f*K attitude".
WHEN IN REALITY--SHE KNOWS SHE HAS BUILT HER FOUNDATION ON QUICK SAND----BUT IS TOO FAR GONE AND ARROGANT TO BACK DOWN AND RETRACE HER STEPS TO NORMALCY.

OH HOW I FEEL SORRY FOR YOU AZUKA--
THIS IS THE BEST YOU CAN EVER BE...TRASHY GUTTER WRITER.

***ps**** DID SOMEONE MENTION AZUKA AND STYLE IN THE SAME SENTENCE??

SACRILEGE.....

ONE OF THE BEST THINGS RUTH OSIME DID IN HER(RUTHS)CAREER WAS FIRING HER(AZUKA) FROM THE STILL QUESTIONABLE STYLE TEAM.
BUT HEY..ROME WAS NOT BUILT IN ONE DAY.

NOW WE CAN ONLY HOPE AND PRAY THAT NDUKA HAS HAD HIS FILL OFF THE WELL IN THE DESERT THAT IS AZUKAS PUSSY(EVERY THIRSTY MAN GOES THERE TO DRINK TO HIS HEARTS CONTENT...AFTER ALL IT IS FREE ) AND FIRES HER...

azuka all i can say is that now that the shoe is very thight and is pinching you how do you feel.I am so angry at those who are pitying azuka. This will stop her from attacking another innocent nigerian.Since the likes of ibori are no longer there to give her and her dirty lover/boss extortion money they have to device a means to sell their paper. Why dont you change to tabloid that way we know you have licence to lie.Orji uzo Kalu just gave you and your cheap boss blackmailer a runn for his money. Azuka some one should just break your fucking hands and cut nduka's fucking dick off.

This is disgusting. Why does Azuka have such ill will about her? Is she the only journalist in town?

Josh said...

@ Tomi, remember I had to give you some brutal ass-raping. You keep talking crap. Yes, I made the first comment. Don't you have a life ? You come up here; compose larger-than-life, stupidly lengthy comments on Azuka and what she has done, what she is doing and the wrongs she has done ? What the hell is that gonna do to her ? Is that gonna make her change? She is who she is and none of your utterly asinine, moronic, hateful comments is gonna make her change. Get that into your thick skulls sons and daughters of bitches! @ Tomi, like I said in my previous comments on dbanj's vs azuka's blog, you are uneducated, unrefined and coarse in your communication manners. You need to get some grooming. You need to learn how to converse intelligibly. I'd advise you do something worthwhile with your time; rather than you coming up here to commit slander, why don't you start up your own blog and be as productive as the funmi iyanda's and the Chimanda Adichie's? Same goes for all of you posting hateful comments about Azuka. Slander is never justified. No matter what the victim has done. It is never ever justified.

Is it not true that this TP lady effed her way to the top ? I have always "not liked her" from the very start. She obviously married 9ice because of his fame. This should serve as a lesson to her. I hope other women learn from this.

Anonymous said...

@Josh
Chineke,see you o,so abeg mister man,tell us,WHAT would you classify what Azuka does if not SLANDER.

It's okay for the cunt to slander ba?
But anyone else telling the truth about the bitch,becomes a problem?

The facts about Azuka speak for themselves.THANK GOD,I WASN'T THE ONLY ONE WHO HAS SPOKEN THE TRUTH ABOUT THE SHAMELESS HAG!!

You?
WANT TO TALK ABOUT CLASS?I LAUGH IN JAPANESE
EDUCATION?I LAUGH IN AIYETORO SULIA ACCENT

WISH I HAD THE TIME TO GO IN ON YOU NOW...BUT KINDA BUSY,AND YOU CAME A FEW DAYS TOO LATE.THE FUN HAS SIZZLED OUT ON HERE.

WHATEVER YOU SAY DOES NOT,AND I REPEAT,DOES NOT CHANGE THE FACTS THAT AZUKA IS A CLASSLESS,GUTTER-BRED,LOW-LIFE,WHORE.SHE HAS A BASTARD FOR SOME MUGU,WHO WOKE UP SHARP SHARP,AFTER REALISING WHAT SHE WAS REALLY ABOUT.
SHE IS BISEXUAL(YEAH,I SAID IT SUE ME),WHO IS KNOWN FOR HAVING ORGIES WITH DIRTY SOCIETY WOMEN,FOR A FEW EXTRA KOBOS.
SHE HAS NO MORALS OR PRINCIPLES AND WOULD FUCK HER OWN FATHER IF THERE IS MONEY INVOLVED.

AS FOR YOU JOSH,DID NOBODY EVER TELL YOU THAT SELF-PRAISE IS NO PRAISE?

IF YOU FEEL YOU "RAPED" ME(FUCKING PERVERT)--VIA YOUR WORDS,WHY DONT YOU LET THE OTHER PEOPLE JUDGE THAT,DON'T COME HERE AND SING YOUR OWN PRAISES AND TRY AND HUFF AND PUFF LIKE SOME HARD MAN EHN..
WE HAVE SEEN YOU FOR ALL YOU ARE.

USELESS BOY,YOUR MALE CONTEMPORARIES ARE OUT THERE DOING SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE WITH THEIR LIVES,YOU ARE TURNING YOURSELF INTO AN E-THUG OVER "WOMAN MATTER"
SHAMELESS EWU.



YOU HONESTLY ASSUME THAT DROPPING POINTLESS,"BIG-BIG" GRAMMER MEANS THAT WHAT YOU ARE WRITING MAKES SENSE?

FOOL IS WHAT FOOL IS....

HOPE AZUKAS POO TASTES NICE THIS WEEK.
SHAMELESS WOMAN WRAPPER...COMMON F*CK OFF....

AND I PRAY YOUR DAUGHTER GROWS UP TO BE LIKE AZUKA,BOTH IN MORALS,BEHAVIOR AND PRINCIPLES.

I wonder why u guys are hitting on azuka. Anybody who knows Onyeka well should also know that she is a nasty bitchy and very rude woman.
To those who call Azuka names, hope you are not forgetting that same Onyeka is a single mother or has she told anybody who the father of her kids is?
And as for Toni Payne, why the heck did she marry 9ice if not that she was carried away by his popularity?
If u were a journalist, I dont think you will like this Onyeka woman for she is one terrible sadist i have ever seen. No wonder no media house published this so called release that she sent. Of course, they know there is no story in the release.
Now that Abacha is dead, continue 'running' for Jonathan and leave journalists to do their work.
I rest my case.
