“We need a full national 24 hours lockdown on Valentine’s Day” — Timini Egbuson

Published

on

Nigerian actor and recipient of the “Best Actor in a Drama” award at the 2020 Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards (AMVCA), the 7th edition — Timini Egbuson pleads with the government to impose a full-day lockdown on February 14, otherwise known as Valentine’s Day.

Timini, who is mostly type-cast for the bad boy and ladies man role in his movies, wrote on his official Twitter page: “We need a full national 24 hours lockdown on Valentine’s Day.”

Lately the trend setting the tone for online relationships and the PDA that comes with it has the tag – “His View / My View” and vice versa, so it is only expected that February 14, known as a public holiday for lovers to showcase affection for eachother will only bring more of such trends and the drama that comes with but according to Timini, he feels there is no need for such as he asks for a 24-hour lockdown on Valentine’s Day.

Although not giving apt reasons for such demands, Timini ended the tweet with the words: “This thing don dey spread too much.” probably alluding to the widespread of Covid-19 or what I will tag ‘The Lover’s Syndrome’ which basically gave birth to the aforementioned trend.

Many quite agree with Timini and his stance as can be seen in the following replies:

While some question his motive behind such demands and why he insists it must be on Valentine’s Day, others, especially female fans are fully against his wish, stating he his just trying to block them from receiving their usual gifts on Valentine’s Day and getting cozzy with their lovers.

Tiwa Savage and Seyi Shay caught in a heated argument at the salon (video); here might be why

Published

on

It was a rainy cool day (at least in most part of the country) until a video surfaced online via popular media head and influencer, Tunde Ednut’s page of female Nigerian singers, Tiwa Savage and Seyi Shay in a very heated argument over what seems to be a matter of disrespect coming from the latter.

From the video embedded above, it’s obvious that “Mummy Jam Jam” Tiwa Savage felt slighted in the manner of approach Seyi Shay tried using in greeting her. Although it wasn’t recorded, it appeared Seyi Shay had walked up to Tiwa Savage in a bid to exchange pleasantries, even saying “Hi” in the process but Tiwa was not having it; immediately ceasing the moment to call out her fellow Nigerian artiste for disrespecting her via her (i.e Seyi Shay’s) music and in many interviews.

You say you be my sister but you wan collect my lover / You be deceiver, olofofo heart-robber / Na why I no dey f–k with you anymore / I no dey die for you anymore / You know I’m not savage, I dey pay my bills” were Sheyi Shay’s exact lyrics in a song she released some years back, in which she covered Kizz Daniel’s “Fvck You”, apparently calling out Tiwa Savage for trying to “collect [her] lover” even name-dropping Tiwa’s maiden last name—Savage—and ex-husband, Tee Billz.

That might have been the root cause of the rift between Tiwa and Seyi at the salon which turned into all sorts of name calling and slut-shaming from both parties as can be seen from the video embedded below.
