Popular radio personality, Maria Okan, is allegedly pregnant for Nigerian indigenous rapper, Olamide. The news took many by surprise because Olamide welcomed a second child with his fiancée in the UK on Wednesday.

Maria who is already eight months gone, previously hosted at Dropout UK, Hayes FM, and worked as a production assistant at Global Radio.

After she allegedly informed the rapper about the pregnancy, he reportedly gave her N2 million and then she resigned from the popular radio station, Beat FM, and left for London. Both parties have kept mum on the issue and have turned off the comments on their respective Instagram handles.

Olamide and Bukunmi welcomed their first child, Maximilian Boluwatife Adedeji in 2015.

Three years later, in 2018, Olamide hinted his decision to settle down with Bukunmi.

Desperate people do desperate things including ridiculous attempts at a smear campaigns. So let me address this foolishness once and for all 1• First the ridiculous rumor that Biodun wedded us. Please watch the video yourself , does the Pastor look like Biodun Fatoyinbo? His name is Pastor Seyi of Global Impact church officiating the wedding and that is a statement from Yemi Davids ,Pastor of Global impact church on this issue …but nameless and faceless cyberbullies cant read , can they ? 2• I have never met or been in the same space with Biodun Fatoyinbo nor do I ever want to be and have never been a member of COZA 3• I guess that also answers the desperate attempt to say I was a music director in COZA. Funny as I have never been a music director in ANY church ! A church cant have an anonymous music director can they ? Foolishness ! 4• Apparently I had a child, divorced and remarried Busola – Spirit wife and child tings #AfricaMagic , and Busola was given monetary gift ,car and flown to chicago . No be only Chicago , na Soweto. Please do better ,tell more believable lies . Again I say, desperate people will do desperate things …but as I said before …WE. ARE .READY. We came out to speak on this painful matter . To bear the shame that goes with this, to be ridiculed, to be doubted …just so that others might be saved and justice served . We are not backing down and no amount of manufactured lies can stop the truth that has started to unveil… #notinmychurch #unbroken #truth

Actress Nkechi and ‘her’ Benz

Actress Nkechi Blessing has pulled down a photograph of a Benz she claimed to have bought after a car dealer called her out on Instagram on Friday.

A family member of the car dealer called out the actress saying their attention was drawn to the photo of the car Nkechi claimed to be hers.

Rapper Nicki Minaj to perform in Saudi Arabia

US rapper Nicki Minaj will perform in Saudi Arabia this month, organisers said, triggering a storm on social media as the ultra-conservative kingdom loosens decades-old restrictions on entertainment.

Minaj, known for her profanity-laced lyrics and raunchy music videos will perform in the western city of Jeddah on July 18, organisers of the ongoing Jeddah Season cultural festival announced on Twitter on Tuesday.

The headline act, to be televised on MTV, will also feature British musician Liam Payne and American DJ Steve Aoki, local media reported.

“She (Minaj) is going to be actively on her social media, she’ll be posting right from the stage in Jeddah and at her hotel in Jeddah,” Robert Quirke, an event organiser, was quoted as saying by the Arab News daily.

Saudis currently splurge billions of dollars annually to see films and visit amusement parks in neighbouring tourist hubs like Dubai and Bahrain.

While Saudi Arabia is yet to offer tourist visas, the country has fast-tracked electronic permits for international visitors to attend such festivals to further boost revenue.

But such acts have fuelled controversy in a country still steeped in conservatism.

In June last year, Saudi Arabia sacked the head of its entertainment authority, following an online backlash against a circus featuring women wearing skin-tight leopards.
