TB JOSHUA TOOK ADVANTAGE OF ME!…I FELT EXTREMELY EMBARRASSED – Jim Iyke Reveals

Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke has accused the founder and General Overseer of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet T.B Joshua of taking advantage of him during his mother’s ailment.

Jim Iyke said he took his late Mum to the Synagogue Church for deliverance after someone advised him to do so.

According to the actor, he was ready to go to hell in search of cure for his mother at that point.

He spoke on Channels TV, “At that point even I’m told there’ll be a cure in hell I’ll go. You are talking about your mother. So we went.”

“I can remember I went there with my security man, my sister and PA. And when we got there, I was upstairs but there was constant insistence that I come to church. And I said, ‘but that wasn’t the arrangement because I kept my mum in the hospital and was expecting that you’ll lay your hand on her and she’ll get better’, but they said ‘no you must come to church,” he added.

“Then my sister forced me and we went to church downstairs. I was there when the whole stuff of touching people started, I found it a little laughable seriously because this is a national TV and people watch from all corners. I can remember my sister pinched me and said, ‘you’ve got to stop.’

“And I said come on men, this is childish, this is not what we came here for. Let’s move mom out of here and keep looking for medical help. Then we were about going to South Africa, there was this young man that was recommended to us, a specialist as well.

“Then the gentleman in question looked at me and saw the amusement on my face and touched me. Now I can’t explain what happened within that space of time. Within that five minutes, whatever happened happened. I’m not here to start proffering explanations to spiritual things that are way beyond me. I’m a man that understand how things work. That I cannot explain and nobody can suggest anything otherwise because personally I know what happened to me.

“Within that time lacks explanations, they said I said stuffs, did stuffs I found out its extremely embarrassing.”

In 2013, Nollywood actor Jim Iyke was allegedly delivered from demonic attacks, it looks like controversies surrounding the incident have no end in sight.

The renowned actor was delivered by one of the prophets during the live deliverance service at the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) in Nigeria headed by Prophet T.B. Joshua about a month ago.

Iyke was delivered from alleged demonic spirits which, according to the Man of God, had hindered his chances of finding real love and marrying.

Several persons had questioned the sincerity of the whole deliverance session with some alleging that the actor and the Man of God were only acting for the cameras, until he finally open up about what really happened.

“NADIA BUARI IS A BORING CELEBRITY”

Entertainment Journalist, Eugene Osafo-Nkansah of Peacefmonline.com has named Ghanaian actress Nadia Buari as one of the boring celebrities we have in the country.

Speaking on Angel TV Wednesday evening, Eugene disclosed that the actress’ constant silence on vital issues about her does not help the showbiz industry.

According to him on The Purple Room show, Nadia Buari does not react to allegations concerning her brand and that makes his job as a journalist challenging.

Even though Mr. Osafo-Nkansah believes keeping quiet over some controversial issues is the best, he also thinks the actress should at times let her fans know the truth in rumours they hear.

Giving series of issues the “Beyonce” actress should have spoken for the public to know the truth in them, Eugene Osafo-Nkansah named the case of her rumoured relationship with Jim Iyke and her alleged “pono” video which went viral many years ago.

He further said the silence of public figures on certain issues gives room for the public to make wrong conclusion which affects their brands negatively.

The Wednesday, October 18 edition of Purple Room show on Angel TV was for bloggers to talk about how they go about their duties. Panelists on the show hosted by Nana Akua included Zionfelix, Eugene Osafo-Nkansah, Dan Lartey and Xerda.

NIGERIA RAPPER M.I SUES AMERICAN RAPPER, NAS

Nigerian rapper M.I Abaga and his record label, Chocolate City, have sued American hip-hop artist Nasir Jones, better known as Nas for breach of contract.

M.I filed the lawsuit in the New York Supreme Court, claiming he and his record label entered an agreement with Nas and his partner Ronnie Goodman in 2013 to contribute a verse to a track from M.I but they did not deliver on it after a payment of $50,000 had been made.

In the agreement, Nas was supposed to mention “M.I, Chocolate City, Nigeria, Queens, New York—NAS’s hometown—, Mandela, Trayvon Martin, and the struggles of Africans and African Americans” in his verse. Nas delivered the track but didn’t mention any of the subject matter Chocolate City had asked for.

Chocolate City then requested that the Queens Rapper re-record the verse but he never did. It’s been over three years now and Nas still has not delivered on the verse though he has accepted payment, hence the lawsuit.

In the lawsuit, Chocolate City referred to Nas as “a highly respected lyricist in the music industry” and they wanted a verse from him “because of NAS’s exceptional talent as a lyric writer.”

A verse dubbed the “possible verse” was sent to Chocolate City by the defendants, but did not contain any of the “agreed-upon names, phrases and facts,” nor did it contain anything to indicate it was collaboration between Nas and M.I.

The verse was sent back, with the defendants agreeing to make the desired changes.

However, up until the present day, neither the edited verse nor the mastered recording has been sent to Chocolate City.

Chocolate City are demanding that the defendants pay to the sum of $1.1 million, with punitive damages and attorney’s fees, for their refusal to refund the initial $50,000, their refusal to send an edited verse or master recording, and for losses and damages suffered.

 

 

 

I HAVE LEARNT MY LESSONS – Afia Schwarzenegger

Media personality, Afia Schwarzenegger, has expressed gratitude to God for saving her from what she called a disastrous marriage to her ex-husband, Lawrence Abrokwah.

To celebrate, Afia, on Sunday, shared a bikini photo on Instagram, and blasted Abrokwah without mentioning his name.

She said the day marked exactly a year after she took the decision to marry Abrokwah. According to her, marriage to Abrokwah was a stupid decision that she took without consulting God.

Stressing that she had learnt her lesson from the dark episode in her life, Afia thanked God for helping her leave the marriage with her life intact. The media personality vowed never to enter another relationship with a “broke” man.

“Lessons learned, lines drawn… no relationship with any broke dude, I don’t run an orphanage in my house… living my life to the fullest,” she wrote.

Afia’s much-vaunted marriage crashed spectacularly last month after Abrokwah caught her in bed with another man and documented it on video, which eventually leaked to the public.

The public release of the video prompted Afia to declare that she was single and ready to mingle. She denied cheating on Abrokwah, explaining that the two of them had been separated before she got involved with another man.

She said she had moved on with her life, only for her ex-husband to invade her privacy and take a video of her in bed with her new man.

The case is currently before court in Accra.

Read her full post below:

“Dear God Today 22/10/17 marks exactly 1 year that i took a stupid step without consulting you…thank you for bringing me out alive and Naked….
