EXCLUSIVE: Ruggedman And 9ice Shouldn’t Have Fought Over Me – Toni Payne

Toni Payne, estranged wife of Nigerian artiste, 9ice spoke to PUNCH’s Nonye Ben-Nwankwo about the many controversies surrounding her lifeExcerpts:

Do you know music so much that you had to go on social media to criticise Tonto Dike’s song?

I didn’t do that.

But where did the story come from?

I know where it came from. I was at an event and somebody asked me what I thought of her song. I said she is a woman like me and she is trying. We are not all perfect. The next thing, I started reading online was that Tony Payne said this and that about Tonto Dike’s song. I was amazed. I never said anything negative about her songs. I have heard the song just once on the radio.

But what do you think of her music?

I haven’t really heard it. I don’t believe in abusive criticism. If I listen to the music, I might even end up liking it because of all the abuses she has got.

Why did you come back to Nigeria?

I got married. I just had to move back home. I felt I should have a close knit family. I got into working in Nigeria and I have been having fun.

Do you have any issues with K Solo?

I don’t have any issues with him. We are not friends. We’ve never sat down to have a 10-minute conversation. The issue with him came up because I follow him on Twitter and I saw the comment he made concerning his son. The mother in me couldn’t take it. I was angry about why he could say such concerning an innocent child on social media. That was it.Have you ruled out marriage?

Everything is in God’s hands. I will not rule out that aspect.

What if 9ice comes back to you?

(laughs) No comment. I will not answer that. I cannot predict the future.

What is this story that he snubbed you at an event?

I don’t know where that story came from. How could he have snubbed me? We are not enemies. He didn’t snub me at any event. I got to the event quite early. At that point, I was about leaving. And because there were too many eyes on me, I just had to stay awhile. It was even later that he asked me if I was at the event.Do you still talk?

Oh yes we talk. We have a child together. We are friends.

During the brouhaha, you were outspoken, why?

There will be a time in the future when my son will be able to browse the Internet and read up all the stuff that happened. I didn’t want him to ask me why I didn’t defend myself. That was what inspired my own decision. I didn’t care whatever consequences that came out from my defending myself. I had to defend myself.

Why did you marry 9ice? So many people were of the view you were taken by his fame…

When I met him, he wasn’t that popular. I met him before the stardom. He was somebody whose personality I liked. It didn’t have anything to do with his being a celebrity. I saw a person I liked. I didn’t look at his status. I would say he was the first guy I was ever really in love with.

Was he your first boyfriend?

No. he wasn’t. But he was the first guy I had genuine love for.

Who was your first boyfriend?

It was one guy. We still talk. I’m not going to mention his name. He is still my friend.

How did you feel when you heard that another lady now has kids for 9ice?

No comment. I am not going to say anything concerning that. I don’t even know about it. I read about it in the papers. But then, I have read so many things about me that weren’t true in the papers. However, true or not, I will not talk about it.

It is more than two years since you separated. Are you now officially divorced?

I’ll not say anything about that. I’m sure 9ice will not tell you either.

We learnt you went back to beg him to take you back?

Me? Never. I did not. I know where the story came out from. Somebody close to him was feeding the press with the story. For some reasons known to him, he never liked me. He was the one that was always talking about me and coming up with such stories.

I guess you mean his former manager, Deinde?

Yes. And since he left him, no story has been said about me. I didn’t go to beg 9ice to take me back. Why would I do that?

Did you actually sleep with Ruggedman?

Of course I did not. I can categorically tell you I did not. Ruggedman has been my friend. But even before then, we didn’t see. And even after the whole incident, we have hardly seen. The last time I saw Rugged was during Occupy Nigeria. I have not seen him again since then.

Would you want Ruggedman and 9ice to be friends again?

They are adults so they should make their own decisions. But then again, I want peace between them. The fight was not warranted. There shouldn’t have been any fight in the first place. The song that caused the problem wasn’t about me. I was there when the song was recorded. I can still remember what I cooked that day. I cooked jollof rice and I diced the meat I used in cooking the rice. The lady referred to in the song was not me. All the attributes didn’t have anything to do with me. I don’t have tattoos. The last time I checked, I wasn’t bisexual as the lady referred to in the song. It was just a song but people just chose to believe whatever would suit them.

My Husband Beats Me But I Regret The Divorce ––Nollywood Actress Monalisa Chinda

Sexy Nollywood actress and divorced mother of one, Monalisa Chinda is pained at the fact that she has to go through the rough path of a divorce; she would have loved to remain with her ex-husband. Now that they are divorce she said "God forbid," she can't accept him back again.But why, if she truly forth to make their marriage work? Is it because she wants to get married to another man? Is it Lanre Nzeribe? See what Monalisa told Showtime Celebrity below:

Have you found love again?
It’s neither here nor there. I’m a lover and I love to love.It was rumoured recently that you have found love again?
Is there anything wrong with that? I just replied you that I love to love. What else do you want to know.

Your fans would want to know if there is any man in your life at the moment?
Yes, there is a man in my life.

Is it Lanre Nzeribe?...
No comment. This is my private life.People are alleging that you are pregnant for him?
You can see that I’m not pregnant. Naturally, I’m not pregnant for anybody.

What do you regret most about your past?
One thing I regret most is the fact that I am divorced. Where I come from, I’m the first daughter. I’m from a royal family, it has never been on record in my family that the first daughter will walk out of her matrimonial home. But it was a matter of life and death, otherwise, I would have stayed back and make my marriage work. I tried to make it work, but it takes two people to tango.

That’s the only thing I regret, having to raise my child without the father. It’s a bit painful. But I have to live with it. It’s better that way than to expose my little daughter to all sorts of domestic violence. It will definitely disorient her and affect her upbringing. She will be dis-functional. God knows the best. May be, I should have been more careful.If your ex- comes back to you today, will you accept him again?
God forbid! He’s a closed chapter in my life.

Does it mean your little daughter is not missing her father?
She doesn’t know her father . She was barely a year when our marriage crashed. I think she will ask some day.

Couple Reunited After 10 Years, 24hours Later They Died In Accident

One of the most shocking stories of the tragic accident involving a Young Shall Grow luxurious bus and a Dangote cement truck was that of Nneka and Kenneth Ojielo, a couple who died in the accident. Theirs is a story that will bring tears to many eyes because Kenneth had not seen his wife in the last 10 years until Thursday, the day before they both perished in the explosion.“My sister travelled to Lagos from Enugu on Wednesday. On Thursday, I took her to the airport to welcome her husband. No one could separate them when Kenneth eventually came out with his luggage. They kissed for about 15 minutes and everybody around just stood watching.”

Nneka’s younger brother, Ogonna Abako, told Punch that “Kenneth travelled to Austria in 2003 in search of greener pastures. Before he left, they already had five children. Their eldest child is 21.

“They actually got married very early. Kenneth was 26 years old when they got married while my sister was about 20 years old at the time. Everybody was joyous when we heard he was coming home."

A picture of the joyous reunion taken by Ogonna’s wife on her mobile phone at the airport showed a couple with much happiness written all over their faces.

But that joy was short-lived.
On Friday, they decided to travel to Enugu. Kenneth wanted to meet his children as soon as possible. The children too were ecstatic in Enugu as they kept calling, asking their father, whom they had not seen in the last 10 years, to get home on time.

Ogonna said, “I drove my sister and her husband to a hotel and lodged them there. The following day, I woke up early to take them to the bus park. We got to Jibowu and realised that the Ekene bus they wanted to take had already left.

“I wanted them to take a smaller bus, but Kenneth insisted he would rather board the luxury bus.”

The couple held hands in the bus and prayed for journey mercies as Ogonna bid them farewell, not knowing it was for the last time. He said he called his sister’s phone at 3pm but it did not connect. He thought there was at network problem.

“When it was 6pm, my sister’s eldest child called and said she had not seen her parents. I then asked my brother to go to the Young Shall Grow park in Enugu. He was told there that only two of the company’s buses took off from Lagos that day, one from Maza Maza and one from Jibowu.

“Many families were waiting for their relations at the park too. The bus that took off from Maza Maza got to the park and that was when the passengers broke the news of the accident to waiting families. Those children will never see their father and mother again,” Abako said as he dabbed at his teary eyes.

Worse is the fact that their bodies cannot be claimed by their family members for burial as they were burnt beyond recognition and were therefore given a mass burial on Tuesday in Benin.

What a sad way to end their journey...all the 10 years hustle of the husband gone. So sad!

21-Year Old Mother Inserts Vibrator Into 2-Year Old Son's Private Part

A Phoenix woman is accused of shoving a vibrator into her 2-year-old son's anus, and doctors told police that surgery will be required to remove it.According to court documents obtained by New Times, 21-year-old Rickesha Burns called police Sunday, reporting that her son was bleeding from his anus.

Burns said she didn't know what happened.

She said she was at a park with her son, and while she was "looking at a text message for about 10 seconds," a boy she didn't know at the park did "something" to her son, according to the documents.

"She said she does not know what he did, but is sure he did something," a probable-cause statement says.

The boy was brought to Phoenix Children's Hospital, and doctors discovered that he has numerous bruises around his anus, a "hanger type" bruise on his hip, and yet another bruise on his neck.

Doctors also found an object lodged in his rectum, which appears to be "a vibrator or some other sex toy."

Police interviewed Burns, who still claimed that a teenage boy at a park did it, even though she "believes it is her vibrator," and police found the boy's blood on her shirt, according to court documents.

Phoenix Police Officer James Holmes says there was zero evidence that the boy was assaulted at the park.

Burns told police that she "worked hard to get her son back and would not do anything like this to hurt her son."

Indeed, court records show that Burns was investigated for child abuse in 2011, but it doesn't appear that criminal charges were ever filed.

The boy was slated to have surgery to get the vibrator removed, according to court documents. Police say the injuries around the boy's anus appear to be caused by a hanger, or similar object, being used in an attempt to get the vibrator out.

Meanwhile, Burns was booked into jail on charges of sexual conduct with a minor, and child abuse. She's being held without bond.

Wahala! Couple Caught Having Sex In Car Min. After Leaving Church Service

It’s always advice-able to be as holy as possible immediately after leaving church service but it’s another ball game here.

Georgia couple Jamel Grant, 26, and Michel Felix Casas, 21, were busted having sex in their parked Nissan 350Z just minutes after leaving church service. Cops say they caught Casas performing oral sex on Grant in the front driver's seat of the car they'd parked up in the Kroger Grocery Store lot, in Gwinnett County, just before midnight.

Grant was unclad from the waist down and Casas' breasts were exposed. There was also a strong smell of marijuana.They told officers they were "making out" and had just been to church, where they said they attended the Service. The Smoking Gun reports the pair were charged with public indecency, loitering, prowling and marijuana possession.

"What kind of lessons did this couple learn from the church service, does that mean that preaching does not make any sense to them or what? Na wa o"

Kenny Ogungbe's Response On Why He Didn't Attend 2face Idibia's Wedding!

Even though we all thought 2face and Kenny Ogungbe’s music label, Kennis Music, parted ways amicably back in 2004, it might not be as we thought.
When asked by an Encomium reporter why he didn’t attend 2face Idibia’s Dubai wedding, Mr Ogungbe replied:
“I don’t think it is something you should ask me. Go and ask 2face why Primetime and Kennis Music were not in attendance. I am too old to start joining issues with people”
Perhaps there is still an open sore yet to be healed?
