I Went To Have Fun On BBNaija, Not Win N120m – Tolanibaj Says

Nigerian reality TV star, Tolanibaj, has said she went on the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) All-Stars edition to have fun, and not because she wanted to win the N120 million cash prize.

The reality TV star was a participant in the ongoing BBNaija All-Stars show.

She was evicted from the show on August 27, alongside Frodd, after receiving the lowest number of votes.

Following her eviction, Tolanibaj received a lot of backlash over her conduct on the show.

She was criticised for fighting over Neo, a fellow contestant, who consistently denied their relationship and maintained that they were just friends.

She was also slammed for pushing for a relationship with Neo.

In a recently released vlog on her YouTube channel, Tolanibaj said she is used to being criticised and judged.

She also said she had already earned the title of  “queen of drags” before she entered the Big Brother house.

She added that she was not on the show to win the money, but just to have fun.

“I am used to getting dragged. Before I entered the house, I was queen of drags. I came out of Big Brother show, did I expect to be liked? The game that I played even backfired,” she said.

“I did not go there to win the money. If you remember on day one when they asked, I said no pressure… I am just here to have fun.”

Since her eviction, Tolanibaj has not granted the press any interview.

While explaining the reason for not engaging with the press, she said “I did not feel the need to grant anyone access to me and I wanted to be selfish with my time”.

No Ghanaian Artiste Is Bigger Than Asake – Shatta Wale Says

Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr., the popular Ghanaian dancehall singer, who is also known as Shatta Wale, has made a new assertion.

He asserted that no Ghanaian artiste is as big as Nigerian singer, Asake currently.

He stated this in a Twitter space hosted by Ghanaian media personality, Serwaa, on Wednesday.

Shatta Wale said, “No Ghanaian artiste has even made it like Asake. Not even me.

“Nobody in this Ghanaian [music] industry has made what Asake has made. Let’s be realistic.”

The host inferred: “But you said you are the richest Ghanaian artiste and you haven’t even made it up to Asake’s level?”

Shatta Wale replied: “Why would I have to make it up to Asake’s level [before I would be the richest artiste in Ghana]? There is a Spanish artiste in Spain or Dominican Republic that is making money that we don’t know.”

Recall that Shatta Wale recently asserted that the successes of Nigerian musicians have dwarfed the achievements of their Ghanaian counterparts while congratulating Asake for selling out the 20,000-capacity O2 Arena in London, United Kingdom.

Kano NNPP Rep Sacked By Tribunal

The National and State House of Assembly elections petition tribunal in Kano has nullified the election of Muktar Umar Yerima of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) as the House of Representatives member for Tarauni Federal Constituency.

Ruling on the petition brought by Hafizu Kawu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), a three-man panel of the tribunal led by Justice I.P. Chima stated that Yerima was not qualified to qualify to occupy the position as he reportedly forged the primary school certificate submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The tribunal which ruled that NNPP had no candidate in the election and all the votes cast for Yerima were wasted votes, directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw the certificate of return earlier issued to Yerima.

The ruling was made after the primary school, Hausawa Primary School disowned the certificate rendered by the sacked lawmaker.

I Didn’t Snub 2Baba In London Club – Mikel Obi Speaks Up

Mikel Obi, the former Super Eagles captain, has spoken up on his alleged beef with singer, Innocent Idibia aka 2baba.

He clarified that he never snubbed 2Baba at a club in London. He noted that he would never have done such a thing seeing he’s a big fan of 2Baba.

There’s been an existing narrative that the former Chelsea star snubbed 2baba sometime in 2006 at a club in London which led the veteran singer to release his 2010 hit track “Only Me”.

They claimed the song was 2baba’s way of getting back at Obi for his rudeness.

In 2016, a few years after the emergence of the speculation, 2Baba, in an interview with Brila FM, dispelled the narrative.

He said such an incident never took place and insisted the song was never a diss track nor about Mikel.

2Baba also revealed when he heard about the rumour at that time, called the former Nigerian international and they had a good laugh over it

“At the time I did the song, Mikel had issues with his inability to show up for certain Super Eagles games.

“Then some very good rumour monger picked a line from my song as regards patriotism towards representing the National football team and ran with the story of a rift between us.

“I spoke with Mikel on the phone and we had a good laugh about it”, stated the veteran singer

Though Mikel never openly addressed the speculation until recently when a curious fan quizzed him about the same under the comment section of the Instagram post he made

He shared a video where he was captured chilling at home while enjoying some good music.

Captioning the video, he wrote: “When the music hits hard, and you can’t get enough. Have a good Sunday my people.”
