People discredit me because i’m kenny ogungbe’s sister-KSB

Published

There is no doubt that singer, Kenny Saint Best, has benefited from the success of her elder brother, Kenny Ogungbe. At a time, she was even signed to Kennis Music, which was co-owned by him.

However, she told Sunday Scoop that being Kenny Ogungbe’s younger sister comes with certain disadvantages. KSB said, “When I joined the music industry, it was not easy to convince people that I was talented. They felt that my brother had a hand in everything I was doing. People didn’t give me credit for music; they only knew me as Kenny Ogungbe’s younger sister. It was as if I didn’t deserve any credibility as an artiste.

“Anywhere I visited, they would address me as Baba Keke’s sister. I didn’t like that at all.To get to where I am today, I had to prove myself to the world. I needed to work harder. I didn’t want to ride on my brother’s hard work. I thank God I was able to earn people’s respect in the long run.”

She also stated that until she got the Channel O Music Video Awards nomination in 2010 for her song, Turn me Around, in which she featured Da Grin, she didn’t think she was doing serious music. “I started taking myself seriously as an artiste when I got a nomination at Channel O Music Video Awards. I didn’t think it was a big deal until we got to Johannesburg and my name was among the best female musicians in Africa. Though Mo’cheddah eventually won that particular award, it was an awesome moment for me. The truth is that younger ones always get these awards,” she said

Miss Congo Wins Miss Africa Beauty Pageant

Published

on

Miss Congo, Dorcas Kasinde has won the 2018 Miss Africa Beauty Pageant hosted by the Cross River Government.

The contest took place in the early hours of Friday at the Calabar International Conference Centre.

Kasinde, who beat Nigeria’s Chiamaka Nnaemeka and Zambia’s Gladys Kayumba to the second and third positions respectively to clinch the crown, went home with $35,000 and a sport utility vehicle.

She was crowned by the winner of the 2017 edition of the pageant, Miss Gaseangwe Balopi of Botswana.

Earlier, the Governor of Cross River, Prof. Ben Ayade, said it was time for Africans to appreciate themselves.

Ayade said that Africa does need the western media to tell its story, which they always centered on poverty and wars.

” This is a celebration of African beauty, brain and heritage; the world will see what African brain and beauty is all about.

” The judges should come down and look at those things that make a woman truly African; it is not just the skin colour.

“Tunisians and Moroccans are light-skinned but they are Africans,” he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that 25 countries participated in the event.

They include Cameroon, Morocco, Tanzania, Togo and Ghana.

Nigerian singers Innocent Idibia (2face) and Tiwatope Savage-Balogun ( Tiwa Savage) entertained the audience.

Thirty Nine Years After, Charly Boy Marries in Church

Published

on

Maverick Nigerian entertainer and activist, Mr. Charles Oputa, better known as, Charly Boy or Area Fada will walk his long time consort, Lady Diane down the aisle at the chapel of the Sisters of Jesus the Redeemer, Catholic Church , in Gwarimpa, Abuja for formal exchange of marital vows.

The ceremony which holds today, Saturday December 15, will be officiated by the outspoken Catholic clergy, Bishop Mathew Hassan Kukah and will have in attendance family members and close associates of the couple.

Mr. Oputa was first married to Stella at a Catholic Church in Onitsha in 1974. The relationship produced one child.

The Catholic Church observes a strict marital doctrine which demands that couples who contracted a marriage on the church must petition the Catholic Pontiff for an annulment if they wish to opt out of the union.

According to Oputa, “We have been following through with the process of annulment for sometime. My former wife who has since remarried cooperated very well. She had no objection. The reason I put forward for the annulment was that I was underage. My mother actually got the wife for me at the age of 19 because I a little rascally with women. Getting me married at that age was supposed to curb my sexual excesses. “

Incidentally, Mr. Oputa’s 101 year-old mother is once again the reason he is contracting a formal marriage to Lady Diane, who has three children for him.

He explained, “This is not that kind of marriage with fanfare. I am doing it to please my aged mother. She has been pleading that we do the right thing. This is a woman I have been living with for 40 years. We know each other well.

This is about obedience to certain demands of the society. People wonder how I am able to live with one woman all these years. It is not that we do not have misunderstanding. Marriage is successful when you are able to manage your incompatibility. I saw my parents quarrel, reconcile, kiss and hold hands again. These are the values that have guided me my relationship. “

Charly Boy who is 62 years has nine children from different women insists that “Lady Diane is now the mother of all my children. We have 16 grandchildren.”

According to him, he hopes to convince his wife to ride with him in a tricycle to and from the church to underscore the low-key nature of the ceremony.
