Nollywood actress, Tayo Sobola better known as Sotayogaga, has revealed why she had a secret wedding and never shared photos with her husband on social media.

Tayo revealed that although she recently shared her wedding photos, she has been married for a while and dated her husband for seven years before they eventually tied the knot.

In her words,

“I am married. My husband is not in the movie industry. I have been married for a while. I had known my husband forabout seven years before we got married. If you know me,you will know that I am the kind of person that loves my personal life. I have been with my husband for seven years.

“I read some blog’s posts and laugh; they should feel free totag anybody. I love keeping my personal life private; that is why I decided to marry secretly. I did not get married this year; I only just posted the pictures some months ago.”

“There is time for everything and I want to believe that whatever you want to do, you create the time for it. For me, some people send me messages saying that they have not been seeing me in movies like they used to; sometimes you leave work to pursue money. There are times that I choose a time to do movies and whoever calls me at that time, if I am free, I will shoot about two or three movies.

“There are other times that I can not do movies. Trust me, this clothing business takes time, except you just don’t have that vision. I recently opened a branch in Abuja where' I have a house because I have a lot of customers there. Right now,I am more into my business ― making and selling clothes.

“I have the face already. If I leave the movie industry for a while to do my business, I will return and no one will notice that I was gone. I have plenty of films that are not out yet. So,when I am busy doing some other things, those ones will come out. That is how I try to balance them. It is when I have time that I shoot movies”. Ace music producer Don Jazzy yesterday shocked the world when he announced he had an ex-wife by the name Michelle Jackson after posting photos of their wedding.

The Mavin CEO whom many had before yesterday regarded as a top bachelor, revealed that he got married when he was just 20 years old and got divorced 2 years later because he gave more attention to his music.

He further stated that he regretted the action, but his love for music can not be replaced with any other thing in the world.

He wrote:

“I getting married? Well truth is almost 18 years ago I was 20 and I got married to my best friend Michelle @yarnstaswitch and it was beautiful. I loved love and I loved marriage. Michelle is soooo beautiful inside and outside with such a soft heart. But then me being so young and full of dreams I went and fucked it up cos I was giving all my time to my Music.

Music became priority instead of my family. We got divorced when I was 22 and it hurt. I am still very much in love with my music and I wouldn’t want to marry another and fuck it up again. So I’m taking my time. Why am I just saying this now?? I really like to keep my relationships private actually. Past or present. But I was watching the bounce interview with Ebuka which is almost like a tell all interview, and I felt bad skipping this huge part of my life. So yeah make una no vex o.”

You can see below the photos of the woman Don Jazzy was married to:

Actress, Tayo Sobola, popularly called Sotayo Gaga has reportedly got married as she recently posted photos of herself in wedding gown.

Taking to her Instagram page, the pretty actress posted photos of herself in a white bridal gown and thanked her make-up artistes and bridal vendor formaking her look stunning.

Her post read,

“Okay, this is not today. I only just decided to post ittoday. Thanks everyone for the messages and prayers. God bless you. @tshakky x @lacharisnigeria and @hairbysleame thanks a million.”

Her colleagues in the movie industry however stormed her page to congratulate her.

Popular actors, Odunlade Adekola, wrote, “Congratulations, my sister.”

Mercy Aigbe, wrote, “Too cute. Big congratulations, darling. May God bless your home.”

Toyin Adewale wrote, “A massive congratulations, darling. I pray your joy shall be permanent. All the best in this new journey and may God bless your union- and home.”

Wumi Toriola, said, “Congratulations Sotee. May God keep your home.”

Yetunde Bakere wrote, “Happy married life babe. Wishing you the very best with lots of love and blessings.”

Some social media users reacting in the comment section of her post are however claiming it was a sort of publicity stunt. The marriage between- Ubi Franklin and Lilian Esoro has been officially dissolved.

This is according to a court document indicating that the divorce which was filed by Ubi Franklin at an Abuja High Court, was granted.

The ex-wife to the music label -executive had initially filed for divorce at a Lagos court, which was denied by the Judge.

The presiding judge had on Monday July 8, 2019 ruled that the divorce proceedings have been cancelled stating further that the reason for both parties wanting a divorce is not valid.

The court also noted both parties should settle their differences and that since Lilian confirmed that Ubi provides for their child and both of them are very good friends, then there is no reason for a divorce.

The celebrity couple who got married in November 2015 and had their son, Jayden in 2016, started having issues after the birth of their son with news of trouble in their marriage awash on social media until they both decided to part ways as husband and wife.

A source who gave reason for their decision to separate, stated that the actress always complained about how distanced her husband was. “He never showed up in any of her filming location and this was often a thing of worry for Lilian”, he said. Other reports claimed infidelity and physical abuse as the reason their wedding packed up immediately their son Jayden was born. Nigerian singers, Adekunle Gold and Simi are celebrating their second wedding anniversary today January 13th, 2021.The couple last year celebrated their wedding anniversary in Cape Verde, but such romantic trip looks unlikely this year due to COVID-19 lockdowns.

Adekunle Gold and Simi had their white wedding in January 2019 and have since welcomed a baby girl. The love birds took to social media to celebrate their second wedding anniversary, as they professed their love for each other.

Celebrating the special day, Adekunle Gold wrote on Instagram;

”I look back to the first day I met you.

I had just left the office, so excited that you had finally given me the audience to see you.

This local boy put on a white byc vest and a pair of new lilac pants bought specially for the occasion; I even made sure I was there earlier so I had front row seats.

I watched you talk, sing, laugh and dance and Omo I knew that very day that I wanted to be in your life.

I knew that day that I wanted my forever to be you.

Here we are, all three of us, talking, dancing, singing, laughing and doing this this called life together.

With you, I have been blessed with so much, so much, it’s too much to count.

I love you Simi.

Forever your steward.


Simi on her own part wrote;

”2 years.

Well, 2 years on government paper and 7 years since I gree for you, you lucky man. Through a pregnancy. With a baby we’re both unashamedly obsessed with. Through a pandemic. And it’s still you. I’ve never had to wonder if you’re in my corner. You’re still the best man I know. You should have been your own best man (don’t leave me).

One of my favorite things about you is that you’re a really, really good person. I like you a lot. I’m so proud to know you and be your wife. I pray that God continues to be the foundation of our marriage and home.

I love you Kunle Kosoko. Now, forever and one extra day, and then another, and then another, and then another, ati be?be? lo…

Happy Anniversary Baby

PS: My wedding was totally the best wedding party I’ve ever been in my life. Lol.”

The man said youths in each Igbo community popularly known as Umunna, need to reduce the demands they make to men who come seeking the hands of the female members of their community in marriage.





The Thread

An Igbo man took to social media to lament about the highcost of getting married in Igboland.

Making particular reference to the demands on the marriage lists given to intending grooms in Nnewi, Anambra state, the man who made his complaint via his Twitter handle @Kene_Nnewi, said youths in each Igbo community popularly known as Umunna, need to reduce the demands they make to men who come seeking the hands of the female members of their community in marriage.

He Tweeted;

''I have kicked against this in my umunna and will fight it until the -executive adjust it... If you can... fight for yours as well. Igba-Nkwu in igboland is getting more expensive every day by day.. I told my umunna either we cut down the list of drinks or take all drinks out entirely.... collect 70k for the two goats 10k for few crates and one schnapps and that's it...this issue of gathering to share almost 8bottles of drink per head after Igba-Nkwu have to stop.''

When a Twitter user replied by saying ''African culture dey make things too hard these days'', Kene disagreed saying it is the greed in this generation that has led to the expensive wedding lists

''Not African culture but our generation greediness..our ancestors never had it this way''

The suspect faked having terminal cancer to solicit funds from her unsuspecting friends to throw her dream wedding.





Toni Standen and her husband, James

A 29-year-old woman is facing five months in jail for defrauding her friends by tricking them into sponsoring her dream wedding by faking cancer.

Toni Standen of Widnes, Cheshire, made up a story that she had been diagnosed with terminal cancer and had just two months to live.

Friends launched a GoFundMe page to help her and her partner James have a ‘wedding they deserve’.

She has been jailed for five months and ordered to to repay a donation of £2,000 made by a local businessman.

The Crown Prosecution Service said that in June 2015 Standen told two of her friends, Ashlea Rowson and Jennifer Douglas, that she had been diagnosed with terminal vaginal cancer.

Ms Standen provided regular updates on her treatment to her friends with such clarity and detail that the condition was never questioned.

She also shaved her head to appear as though she was undergoing treatment and shared pictures of this on social media.

The fraudster later claimed to have two months to live and said her wish was to have her 57-year-old father Derek, who was dying of cancer, walk her down the aisle.

Her friends began fundraising to help fund the wedding which was held after the death of her father at St Bede’s Catholic Church in Widnes.

Her father Derek died before the wedding but a video he recorded was played on the big day.

One guest said:

‘After hearing her father’s laboured words she got up and gave a faultless speech, even cracking a few jokes.

‘Her mother and brother were in bits. We’d all just listened to a father of the bride message from beyond the grave.

‘Toni even received a video message from Everton FC, delivered by one of the top players. She laughed throughout.’

About 20 Generals have reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, one week after the death of the General Officer Commanding, 6 Division, Port-Harcourt, Rivers State, Maj. Gen. John Irefin from complications arising from the disease.

The infected Generals reportedly had a contact with the deceased during the Chief of Army Staff’s annual conference 2020, in Abuja which was cancelled after the death of Irefin.

The conference was attended by the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, pictured above; the Minister of Defence, Bashir Magashi; and GOCs from nearly all the army divisions nationwide. They were all directed to go isolation thereafter, leading to the COAS not being able to attend the wedding of his son in Abuja on Friday December 11.

Punch reported that some of the infected GOCs and principal officers were being treated at the COVID-19 isolation centre, University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada, Abuja. Some of the patients were also being quarantined at other isolation centres in the Federal Capital Territory.

A source who confirmed the development which has reportedly triggered panic among top military brass who are yet to take the COVID-19 test, told the publication;

“The report is true; I know about four generals who returned positive and are being treated for the disease.”

The Sunday News reported that Moreblesing Maridza (41) of Platinum Park in Zvishavane, married another man after accusing her first husband of failing to be intimate with her for the past 12 years.

But things took a turn after she admitted that she isn't even engaged even though she has her wedding dress ready. 


She came clean after getting some congratulatory messages.


She said she bought the dress in preparation for what might lay ahead, not for any time soon.


She posted: "Thank you for the congratulations! I'm not actually getting married yet, but you know... Someday."


Woman who isn


Someone commented, saying that whoever is dating the woman should "run for the hills."


One user wrote: "I like the dress for like a simple low budget beach wedding type thing, but to buy a dress without having a wedding planned (or mans for all we know) is odd."

Another agreed, saying: "This is how you scare away any potential future partner. Man, woman, non binary, all of the above or fluid. Lady, you’re TERRIFYING."

BBNaija star, Khafi, has come out to deny claims that she and her lover, Gedoni, are expecting their first child together.

Khafi and Gedoni met during the BBNaija season 4 show. They developed an affair in the house that blossomed outside the house.

Only recently, there were rumors that she and Gedoni have secretly tied the knot as they now adorn wedding bands.

Her fans have since then been watching her womb with many congratulating her for "being pregnant" with their first child.

In a lengthy post shared on her Instagram page age, the reality TV star dismissed claims she is pregnant and also asked people to stop putting such pressure on women. She said whenever she gets pregnant she will share the news and until then, people should stop with the pregnancy comments they leave on her page. Read her post below

''The way I'm looking at the next person who drops a pregnancy comment on my post. Continue reading if you don't want to get BLOCKED. (I'm not joking).

I've ignored them for the longest now but according to the womb watchers on social media I have been pregnant for over a YEAR. So let me get this off my heart. Some people have flat stomachs naturally and some people have big stomachs naturally. The latter is ME. And when I'm on my period it is even BIGGER. I don't owe anyone a flat stomach but still I try to suck in my belly in every single picture and sometimes I do it better than others. The worst is that even when I'm proud of my 'sucking in skills' on a particular picture there is always SOMEONE who still comments something about pregnancy. This is a habit that HAS TO STOP.

First of all, women are more than baby making machines. A woman's fertility or decision to start a family is for her to decide, not for you to comment on in every single picture... Must our stomachs always be the first thing you look at??

Secondly, I'm not just speaking up for myself but for women in general. You may mean well when making pregnancy remarks but it is not always a compliment. For women who have had miscarriages, have been trying unsuccessfully for a baby, or simply conscious about their weight it can be very distressing, triggering and also puts a lot of undue pressure on them. So unless someone has announced a pregnancy or told you then please be nice and DONT COMMENT OR CONGRATULATE them on one.

Trust me when the time is right I welcome pregnancy (twins please Lord!) and starting a family at God's time. But until I've said I'm expecting please stop with the pregnancy comments. I'll have no patience for them anymore and any one who writes such comments will get BLOCKED.

To those who mean well, thank you so much, I do love you all But to the amebos please be amebos elsewhere' . It's pressure enough being a woman, so let's not add to it.''

A young Nigerian woman has decided to use Twitter to find love by 'shooting her shot' at a man.

Rofiah Salako, a Nigerian woman has boldly indicated interest in dating a Twitter user who bears the same surname as her.

It all began when a cloud engineer named Ayomide Salako tweeted a response to a Tweet shared by a popular Twitter influencer and a woman named Rofiah Salako went under his response to shoot her shot.

She tweeted: "Since you are having my surname already. I think, its of great opportunity for me not to change my surname again. If a chemistry can occur between- us. or what do you think?"

The man responded: "Feel free to DM."

The tweets have gone viral with Nigerians already planning their wedding for them in the replies.
