Nadia Buari Reveals What Will Keep A Man

Ghanaian actress Nadia Buari has said that what most women think will keep a man will not. She went on to reveal the only thing she thinks can make a man stay.

She wrote:

so I just got off the fon with a childhood friend of mine who’s having relationship issues and feels her last resort is to get off the pills and have a baby for him.

In her naïve mind, that will certainly hold him down. Well..I ain’t no counselor, neither I’m i clairvoyant, but I do know this however, that, a baby WON’T keep a man, being beautiful WON’T keep a man, sex WON’T keep a man, Heck, being a good woman, BARELY keeps a man. The only thing that’ll keep a man, is A MAN THAT WANTS TO BE KEPT! #Periodt!

Emeka Ike Reveals What Drove Him Out of Nollywood

Popular Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike has finally opened up on what drove him and some of his other colleague out of Nollywood.

In a new interview with Joy Marcus, the veteran actor, the advent of Cable TV and bad economy could be held responsible for their exodus out of the movie industry.

What is your assessment of Actors Guild of Nigeria at the moment?

I don’t have any comment on that.

Some people feel that you are no longer relevant in the industry as producers don’t call you for movies. What do you have to say about that?

It is not just about me; it is about all the actors in my set. You don’t see Jim Iyke, Ramsey Nouah, Genevieve Nnaji and Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde as often in movies any more as you used to. So, it is not about me alone. It is the new trend that came about when cable television operators came on board.

The home video system was not properly structured; so, people started buying decoders. The level of politics in the home video sector was so high and our economic value became affected because initially, we got paid from the funds got from the sales of movies. As an actor, you can determine the fees you will charge for a movie.

When cable television was introduced, it drastically reduced the sales of movies because some of those movies were already being aired on TV. It is not a personality thing but the lack of structures in the industry. And see where it has brought us.

What are some of the pressing changes you will like to see in Nollywood?

I have gone beyond that. I have stopped wishing Nollywood anything because I see that change is far. Some years ago, you could hear me say Nollywood was dying, but you will never hear me say that now.

I realised that whenever I tried to speak with people on how we could lift Nollywood higher, they didn’t do anything. Some of them are not even informed about what is going on in the industry. Now, it just seems like I am a noisemaker but I keep praying that God helps us in 2019.

Some people feel that Nigerian actors are poorly paid. Do you agree?

Producers don’t make (as much) movies anymore; the issue of being poorly paid is out of it. I haven’t made movies in over six years. However, last year, I was begged to go to a location for a movie which is all over the Internet now.

This is because the industry is no longer what it used to be. Cable television has taken over everywhere and the producers and marketers that used to be popular then are no longer famous because nobody is buying their CDs.

Some people feel that you are very aggressive. How true is this?

Please, this should stop. There has never been a report of me involved in any altercation with any person before. If someone is pushing an opinion that is not true, it tells a lot about that person. Somebody should come out to say if I have beaten him or her before.

I am very blunt and don’t give my time to people who try to destroy me. However, whatever I do is nobody’s business because no one is an angel that has the right to judge others.

Do you have plans to remarry anytime soon?

When I am ready to get married, it will be known.

How do you cope with raising your four children alone?

It has been God and I thank Him for his grace and mercies. I also thank him for giving me love because that is what matters. If you love your children, you will sacrifice so many things for them.

What is your relationship with Pastor Chris Okotie?

I don’t know him beyond the fact that he didn’t play the role of a pastor in my marriage. I thought he was a good man because while growing up, I used to read about him as someone who spoke ambiguous grammar.

Then, his music career also died. He said he is a pastor and the Bible says that, ‘Let him that nameth the name of the Lord depart from evil’. If he says he is a pastor, then we should celebrate him as one.

As a man of God, if a woman runs to you, you should chase her back and try to settle the dispute in her marriage. The cleric is supposed to be a mediator. At least, that was what I was taught while growing up.

Do you think Pastor Chris manipulated your wife?

It is a known fact; I don’t need to say it. Everybody knows that the man doesn’t have a second church. He speaks English to manipulate the things he cannot explain properly.

Charles Okocha Speaks On Being Depressed

Nollywood actor and singer, Charles Okocha, known for his hyperactive comic skits and crazy videos has said he can never be depressed as he has never in his entire life experienced such.

Though many entertainers have come out in recent times to admit that they have battled depression, Okocha boasts there is nothing of such in his dictionary.

In a chat with Sunday Scoop, he said,

“One thing I have learnt in life is that you should never let what you’re going through pull you down. Personally, I don’t let anything get to me because we all have issues. It’s not that rosy anywhere. I may be down today and up tomorrow; that’s the way of life a lot of people don’t understand it that way.

You may have marital crisis but you shouldn’t let that weigh you down. If you have a relationship that is not going well or any other thing that is affecting you negatively, try to distance yourself from it. You should put God first so that you can overcome these issues. I don’t see anything that can ever get me depressed.

I am always a happy fellow and you would never find me around negative people. The moment you are negative, I cut you off because that’s where depression comes from. Not everybody wants to see you happy and doing well; they just want to see you down and frustrated so they have something to gossip about.

That’s why when someone dies in this part of the world, people start writing flowery condolences, but they didn’t care for the person while alive.”

On the issue of fans often begging celebrities for money on the Internet, Charles said,
“I have never really had that experience because I have loyal fans. However, it is not right for followers to hold artistes to ransom that if they (artistes) don’t do giveaways, the fans wouldn’t listen to their songs. People have sent me messages on social media asking for one help or the other; if I feel like helping them, I do, and if I don’t feel like, I wouldn’t.”

Meanwhile, Okocha’s latest song, Upper, which he released under the name, Amoshine, featuring Slimcase, has also become a topic of discussion on social media. Some people felt that Okocha should just remain as a hypeman instead of an artiste. In response to that insinuation, he stated,

“If it was just someone that made that comment, it means it’s not the majority. I have been getting a lot of positive feedback on the song. Of all my songs, I actually think Upper is the best. People didn’t believe that I could do a street song because of my usual American style. I am an actor and singer; unfortunately, some people cannot relate with that.”

He said,

“Yes, you are right; that is an issue. However, I am like a virus and whatever I do or say becomes a trend. Igwe 2pac was the title of a movie I starred in and because I acted the part so well, people started calling me that name. I also created the slang, Amoshine, and it also went viral. People know me with all sorts of slangs.”

Aliko Dangote Emerges Africa's Richest Man, Check Out Full List

Here is the recently released Forbes list of the top 21 richest men in Africa for the year 2019. The list was released today January 9th, 2019.

Another Nigerian, Folorunsho Alakija was one of the billionaires, who suffered a drop in their net worth between last year and this year, as she held No 19 on the 20-man list.

Forbes report that Alakija’s net worth dropped due to a decline in the value of one of Nigeria’s most productive oil fields.
