Here’s everything you missed in entertainment over the weekend and others that unravelled while you slept – and are still buzzing today.
Between Lilkesh and Kogbagidi…
The singer, Keshinro Ololade, known as Lil Kesh, had reacted when a show promoter, Kogbagidi, said he was no longer an A-list artist.
Stay true to yourself, stay happy always, you owe yourself that much.
The internet is a town square, those who cannot take care of their baby mama will come and take out their anger on you. The lord will heal you.
Amen 🙏 #Flenjor

But the show promoter was having none of that. He said, in an interview with Punch, “I am happily married and blessed with kids. I only have a woman in my life and she is not a Nigerian. If you check my Instagram page, you will see photos of my family. If he (Lil Kesh) says I have a baby mama, he must have taken something strong…”
“The entertainment industry is all about talent and creativity. Over the years, a lot of new acts have been discovered and more are still coming in. After Lil Kesh left YBNL, Olamide has signed new artistes. What I said shouldn’t be an issue as I was only evaluating the industry. I don’t have anything against him and I am not trying to pull him down. I am a fan of Lil Kesh, but he is not doing well at the moment.
“He needs to be creative. He should take what I said and work on his music. If he puts out something nice, I will speak well of him. I have called him for shows many times and paid him fully. If he has taken what I said personally, it means he is not a good artiste.”
BamBam says her eviction from Big Brother Naija was refreshing
Speaking to Punch, she said, “I auditioned for the previous edition of the reality show in Abuja but didn’t make it in. After film school, I decided to give it another shot; this time, in Lagos. I remember the night I got called; I was actually house-hunting. I’d just finished film school and wasn’t sure I wanted to go back to Abuja. Although I was a bit nervous, I was still very excited. I didn’t believe I could get called, especially because I was quite different from other contestants at the audition. Getting into the house, I was homesick for some days but because of my adaptive nature, I was able to get by. Sadly, when there was tension in the house, it sort of wore me out. I didn’t enjoy the negativity that went around. When I got evicted, it felt like a gush of fresh air.”

As a young actor starting out I always wanted to have a voice to do my craft to the best of my abilities. Get lost in it and be able to shine through no matter the pressures of the living conditions in Nigeria. Am so grateful I have managed to live some of my dreams. The awards have come in and to get them in my life time and not posthumously makes me even more grateful. You see, none of my parents made it to be 60 years old. So to be 57 and healthy and winning awards in a profession I love so much just makes me super grateful today. I was at the beautiful new airport in Accra, past 4am using their free WiFi when the news from AMAA AWARDS holding in Kigali came that I won best actor in a leading role for the movie Crossroads. I had won the same award at the very first AMAA AWARDS in Bayelsa. I was later honoured 2 years ago with a lifetime achievement award in acting. Now this. This is me using this opportunity to say thank you to my fans and everybody else that has made my journey a beautiful one. Keep striving and keep believing and God will make everything perfect in His own time. #keepwalkingnigeria #amaaawrds2018 #rmdsaysso #rmdtheactor #nagracederushus #themrxfamilyshow @vomozmedia Tshirt by @wordforteclothing. #crossroadsthemovie
