Today’s Noisemakers: Olori Wuraola, Lanre Olusola, Igwe 2Pac and others

Every day on the Nigerian internet, there are people who keep our eyes glued to our phone screens as we read their rants, opinions, perspectives on political and social matters, etc. Sometimes, they are just downright ridiculous. We make it our job to take down the names of these noisemakers.

1 Olori Wuraola

Olori Wuraola is now Zaynab Otiti Obanor, after her 17 months-old marriage to the Ooni of Ife broke up. Rumours had circulated on blogosphere weeks before that the couple was no longer an item. The grapevine also accused the Olori of serial infidelity. Having stomached enough crap, she decided to set the record straight:

OFFICIAL STATEMENT We have got to stop this culture of shaming and vilifying women with false stories of infidelity & nefarious behavior. The spreading of false information (through "sources" afraid to be identified) is the mark of cowards and a cover up for guilty parties to justify their horrific actions. There is absolutely no truth to the media circulated lies of infidelity and infertility- on my end. What I can confirm, is that the Ooni and I are no more. I inhale love & exhale gratitude. My journey continues as a Humanitarian aiding women and victims of domestic violence & abuse with the United Nations. No matter how much time you've invested, no matter the use of media to silence & manipulate, no matter the circumstance, slander, embarrassment, threats and lies: Get out and seek immediate help! We've seen this movie before. Women being dragged in the press & blamed for everything under the sun. This behavior is unacceptable. I urge those involved to be mindful of their actions for the eyes of our Almighty God are always watching. The seeds of slander is a cancer that harvests to eat away the souls of the planter. The throne is sacred and the attempts to tarnish the name of a Queen, in defense or on behalf of a silent King makes all involved look terrible. Remain dignified in all you do. It's not the end of the world, but the start of a new chapter and you must turn the page with grace. The world is watching. As I bid adieu to this chapter, my wish to you all is to step into your lives – boldly & fearlessly, the way God intended and live not just by words, but through example. The best chapter in our lives is the one we are writing now. Thank you for your love and support. With peace, love &  light, -Her Highness, Zaynab Otiti Obanor.

Indeed it is.

This being a “high-profile” traditional marriage, the who’s who in the celebrity arena needed to give their two cents. Cue Dele Momodu:

We see you, Mr Momodu.

3. Kemi Olunloyo

Oh dear. The struggle is real. It appears we have a battle of I broke the news first on our hands. Founder of HNN Africa wants you to know:

#KOOVIEWS I was the first to tell you that Queen Zaynab Wuraola left the palace by a credible palace snitch, then King Enitan released a statement that it was false. Read her statement carefully and see the key word. Madam Ooni and Ooni are no more. That her gender equality view was problematic for me. I was fighting the bill at the senate when her views came out. She did not believe men and women were equal. . . . Wura said some things that were disturbing. It was NOT infidelity or infertility. Whatever it was, oracles cannot arrange marriages forever. Happiness matters. Even Janet Jackson who had a hit song #Control felt seriously controlled in a forced muslim conversion marriage to a billionaire. Wura is now FREE of whatever was saddening her royal marriage. Even the best of the best Charles and Diana did not last. Tomorrow we remember Princess Diana after 20 years of her death August 31st 1997. . . Whether Wuraola Zaynab was married to the Lebanese billionaire, Jigawa governor or the Ooni is nobody's business anymore. I've never been married at 53 yo except to Jesus in prison as I stated showing my new found love for my bible. I am not "born again" pls. No fake terms. Port Harcourt Pastor Indomie said if you are 35yo and not married you are IRRESPONSIBLE. Marriage is in God's time. . . . May God see you through your royal highness. @hhzaynab. Thank u for speaking out for we victims of domestic violence. I look forward to joining hands with you on that topic. MadamKOO @hnnafrica on Twitter and Facebook #hnnroyalty #hnnpersonality

Yesterday, Twitter threw subs at Bobrisky, Vico and Speed Darlington. We believe they forgot a crucial individual. You’ll see why soon.



The very meaning of the apple does not fall far from the tree.
