Here’s everything you missed in entertainment yesterday and others that unravelled while you slept – and are still buzzing today.
Adeniyi Johnson and Toyin Aimakhu still in divorce row
In a series of posts on Instagram, the actor revealed that Toyin Aimakhu, now Toyin Abraham, has been stalling their divorce for the past three years.
“We were supposed to sign divorce documents by November 1st, u didn’t come, the case was postponed to January 10th only for your manager SAM to call me that you want to discontinue the case in shagamu and restart in Ibadan…why madam? Till date I did no interviews except for the one on rubbin mind and yet took all faults and bear the names you call me…why not let me go after 3 years…why shift case to start all over again,” he wrote.
Samuel Olatunji has since replied – she reposted as her own reply.

#Repost @_samuelolatunji (@get_repost) ・・・ Dear Niyi Johnson, I'm forced to respond to you here because you mentioned my name,so I will be returning the favour. In all my years of dealing with the entertainment industry, I carefully avoid the drama that goes with the terrain. And this includes years of dealing with big brands. Some of these brands have warned me to avoid some people from the Yoruba industry because of the attendant, unnecessary drama and here you are proving them right and giving the noble Yoruba industry bad name. You have my number, you have the number of the lawyer, and I believe you have Toyin's number as well. This unnecessary call for attention and social media shenanigans are unnecessary. You see why people don't dignify your ilk with phone calls, sms or courtesy, it always end on social media. People are doing great things in real life not Instagram drama. Two, a simple call to your lawyer would tell you that what Lawyer Bosun called you for is the beginning of trial (court proceedings) not to come and sign divorce papers. Divorce doesn't work like that. Three, if you depserately want a divorce, you should have filed one not Toyin; perhaps the over 1m naira cost deterred you. Toyin, chose to bear the cost, pay her lawyer the fee and has taken the case to a considerable point. She has shown more commitment to the divorce proceedings than you. In more than three years of separation you just filed a 'cross petition' last month while she has been at it in the court for over a year. She has 'allowed you go' a long time and we all can see what that has done to her life and career. Please come down from your Instagram high horse, real court issues happen outside of social media. She changed lawyer and he has moved faster than we anticipated. It was out of courtesy that I called you to ask for your address. I told you I'd call for if there is any new development. And a piece of advise from me, you need to stop using your past relationship to generate talkability, you have talents and new relationship, they should be enough. That is what you should focus on; stop focusing on what you don't have, what you have should be enough. Selah! Today
