Child Bride Who Killed Her Husband Charged With Culpable Homicide Punishable By Death

Posted in: , , , ,

In a suit slated for hearing on August 4 at Kano State High Court, the Kano State Government has charged 14-year-old bride, Wasila Tasiu who alledgely killed her husband and three other persons in their home with culpable homicide punishable by death.

Back in April, Wasila, who had been forcefully married to her now dead husband, poisened him and the three other people that died also ate from the food she prepared when they came visiting the couple. After her arrest, she admitted her guilt and said she felt the only way she could be free was to poison him.

With her plea for mercy, admission of guilt, and apology to the family of those concerned, coupled with her age, I was hoping that Wasila would get a lesser charge that does not involve the death penalty.

Considering that her husband had practically been raping a minor for the period of their marriage, the prosecution should be more lenient. I'll be keeping an eye on the case. Hopefully the defense lawyers for Wasila are able to do a good job for her.

Watch Gidi Up Season 2 Online - Episode 1 - 5 [Every Dream Has a Price Tag]

Posted in: , , ,

Gidi Up is a thrilling adventure centered around the lives of four friends in pursuit of happiness, success and independence. However, a few wrong choices quickly turn their Lagos dreams into a Gidi nightmare.

When I shared the last episode of Season 1 [here], I wasn't sure if there would be a season two. I'm happy to report that there is, and after having watched the first five episodes, my verdict is "MUST WATCH!"

For those that watched the first season of Gidi Up, some characters have had their actors changed, like OC Okeje, Adesua Etomi, and a lady I haven't watched before, but the newbies are more than equal to the task.

Enjoy! And don't blame me when you finish the first five episodes and want more :)

Tonto Dikeh Looks Patriotic in White and Green, But What's That Plaster on Her Arm?

Posted in: , , ,

Tonto Dikeh was looking very demure and patriotic for an interview at Naija FM in Lagos, but her short sleeved blouse showed a plaster bandaid just above the crook of her elbow.

I don't want to be flippant because though the first thing that came to my mind was drug use, Tonto has also spoken out before about attempting suicide and self harm out of depression.

I hope she is OK, and the plaster is innocuous at this time. She does look happy, and things have been going great for her with her new music, Sugar Rush crushing the charts. Tonto's music identity is as Poko Lee and part of Dbanj's record label [here].

'Her Bold Move Endeared Her To Me' - Benny Ark on Marrying Ese Walters Despite The Controversy

Posted in: , , ,

When the engagement of Ese Walters to her Abuja’s Cool FM’s heartthrob, Benny Ark, was announced, many were taken by surprise. A few thought their civil marriage was a fashion photoshoot, until they followed it up with their traditional and then church wedding. What was not in doubt was the look of love on both their faces on all of the pictures [see here and here].

Some of the surprise at the couple's wedding came because just last year, Ese had opened up about an affair  she had with a popular Abuja-based pastor Biodun Fatoyimbo of COZA. Her accusations had generated lots of controversy as supporter of the pastor squared off against those who condemned the pastor's abuse of office and a vulnerable young lady under his pastoral care.

In a recent interview with The Sun, Ese Walter's husband, Benny Ark speaks on his career, a lifelong love for radio, and why he married Ese despite the controversy surrounding her. See excerpts below:
