Churchill Olakunle has revealed that he met his former wife and mother of his son, Tonto Dikeh at a nightclub. The business mogul made this known during an exclusive interview with Azuka Ogujiuba.
According to him, they met at his brother’s birthday party back in 2014, three months after, she was pregnant for him. Churchill went on to say at the time he met, Tonto Dikeh, he was already one of the most successful young millionaires in Africa. He went on to share with Azuka Ogujiuba how he took care of her all through the pregnancy, debunking the claims that she was the one actually taking care of him.
“Before I met the Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, I was already one of the most successful young millionaires in Africa. I met her at a night club, during my brother’s birthday party in 2014 and it was about the same time I acquired the latest Benz cars. Three months after we met, she got pregnant. I have never really stayed in Nigeria for too long, because I do business in Ghana, although I have an office at Ikoyi. She visited me in Ghana several times and when she broke the news of her pregnancy three months into the relationship, I decided to visit her in Nigeria. I had to visit her often because she was carrying my child,” he said.

We need to clean up the business of entertainment in Nigeria. One way or another, we win….#entertainment #BFNfans #iplaw @lawyer9ja @blackface9ja_news 👌
A statement received exclusively by Pulse Nigeria from Blackface’s lawyer, Mani Enajeroh of M.O Enajeroh, after the adjournment of the case reads,
”The Copyright system in Nigeria will eventually kill every iota of creativity in Nigerian music, unless someone takes up this issue of royalties.
Even though we don’t have functioning collective societies that doesn’t mean we can’t be fair to one another. Because of speaking out about this Blackface was sued for N50m.

That’s why it’s important that this case must be struck out. The case is a threat to freedom of expression, and intellectual property in general. We are confident that the Court will strike out the case.
This is a copyright issue, no matter how you look at it and it ought to be at the Federal High Court. Look at their court documents, they did not admit anywhere that Blackface wrote “Let somebody love you”. The stories are never consistent.”
Following several allegations of copyright theft particularly over the singles, ‘African Queen’ and ‘Let Somebody Love You’, 2face and his manager Efe Omorogbe had filed a suit against Blackface at the High Court, Ikeja Judicial Division, Lagos in April 2018.
Pulse has also reached out to Efe Omorogbe for comments.

Welcome to another episode of Loose Talk Podcast. This is episode 162, and on the last episode, “Mutually Beneficial” featuring Jekein Lato Uriah, the gang, minus Steve broke down the complex yet simple case of femininity, abuse and consent.
It was a truly good moment in Nigerian contemporary culture, especially because it also came on International Women’s Day 2019.
This time, Steve is back and popping, but Mo is reportedly out of the country on important p. The episode starts off with Jess telling the story of how she became a Lagosian purely off the strength of will.
The gang addresses a mail that backs Steve, states his opinion on the Nigerian elections and states some suggestions for the gang. Before this segment ends, a Kemi also complains about the inherent pedophilia in Nigeria, especially during the NYSC year as a Corps Member. The conversation also moves into #MeToo and the entertainment industry in Nigeria.
Jess then discusses the plight of the Nigerian female and why there is a low confrontation rate on harassment in the Nigerian industry.
“To live a life in Nigeria is to be constantly annoyed”
A few days ago, a lot of Nigerians lost their lives at No. 14, Massey Street, Ita-faaji, off Apatira Street. Before then, Professor Pius Adesanmi lost his life on the Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed. It’s been a few dark days for Nigeria and the gang commiserates with the losses.
According to the gang, the problem with issues like this also comes down to the selfishness in the Nigerian government that only does things for rewards and gains. The discussion also gleans the problems of a terrible process culture and the problems with a lack of education and the insensitivity, and a lack of empathy for one another behind it all, even from seemingly sensible person.
Shout-out to Adesua Etomi
The actor was one of the global stars featured on the cover of Vogue Magazine. The gang then examines this.
Other interesting issues are discussed on this very interesting episode with a lot of interesting topics.

“Holding Your Head Up High and Standing Tall Through Your Mess. A lot of people were shocked I was already a cover girl to a magazine granting interviews and hosting shows outside Lagos- Back to work. They did not expect me to rise and shine. At least not so soon they said. They would feel better if I hide my head in shame, lay low and disappear for the rest of my life. However, I will be a bigger disappointment to the girls who look up to me if I do not show them how they could also rise above their mistakes:- Own your mess up.

A lot of people were shocked I was already a cover girl to a magazine granting interviews and hosting shows outside Lagos- Back to work. They did not expect me to rise and shine. At least not so soon they said. They would feel better if I hide my head in shame, lay low and disappear for the rest of my life. However, I will be a bigger disappointment to the girls who look up to me if I do not show them how they could also rise above their mistakes:
– Own your mess up
– Do not let some of the greatest weapons of failure- shame and fear keep you down… And then depression sets in… Low self-esteem and the feeling you will never be anything great comes in.
-Don’t listen to that voice in your head or that acclaimed adviser Nowamagbe who constantly drums it into your ear that you have messed up and it’s the end of the road. Those people who take joy in analysing your mess up and how it will affect you rather than discussing way forward or just minding their own business all together. Cut them off. -The proof of a strong man is not the absence of wounds but exactly how he heals and rises for the next battle. Se ogun laye ni? Yes! Ogun l’awa!! And
The absence of wounds only show a child who has never been in battle
-As casual as this sounds “I cannot come and kill myself” it is one of the strongest tools of motivation against suicide and other regret related reactions. -Even a righteous man shall fall several times and rise up again. So don’t beat yourself up
From recent events, I have come to realise a lot of people look up to me. Wow. Also, a lot of people dealing with shame and rejection from family and friends as well. A lot of people who have been tagged useless and worthless. Also the black sheep of families. At first I said please I’m human go and look up to Jesus Christ but then again God uses humans. As a role model I have shown you how to fall. Now, permit me to show you how to rise again like an eagle, like the Queen you are, like the Luxurious BOSS that I am.
