Moji Olaiya’s Family Reveals Cause Of Her Death

The family of late Nollywood actress, Moji Olaiya, has said that she was not poisoned. Recall, that the actress died in Canada on May 17, two months after delivering her second daughter.

In a statement signed by her brother, Femi Olaiya, the family said an autopsy report revealed that she “died of a different cause that can be termed natural medical cause”.

“The Olaiya Family appreciate the immense outpouring of love and affection the public showed the family since the sudden and untimely death of our beloved Sister, Moji Olaiya, and the huge support we received for her burial,” the statement read.
“We also want to use this medium to specially thank the Burial committee and all those who were involved in helping to raise funds for the return of Moji’s remains to Nigeria, we are eternally grateful to you for rising above the grief to support the family.
“This is also appreciating Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, erstwhile governor of Lagos State for his humane and philanthropic gesture in providing the required funds to transport Moji’s corpse back to Nigeria. Thank you, your Excellency. Indeed, Moji received burial befitting queens because of all your efforts.
“We wish to use this opportunity to debunk claims circulating on social media that a friend in Canada poisoned Moji. An autopsy was conducted; the autopsy reports indicated that our dear sister died of a different cause that can be termed natural medical cause.
“It is not the desire of the family to have anyone implicated in her death having seen the autopsy reports, therefore, we appeal to friends, fans and the general public to accept Moji’s death as an act of God though rather unfortunate.”

The Nollywood star was buried at the Ebony Vault burial ground in Ikoyi , Lagos on Wednesday.

Davido Builds Home For The Little Boy Singing His Song In A Viral Video (photos)

Davido took to IG to reveal that he has fulfilled his promise of building a home for a fan.

Weeks ago, a video of a little boy, Utibe, singing Davido’s song “If” went viral and drew his attention. The person who recorded the video revealed that not only does Utibe not go to school but has to hunt snails and assist his mother, who was abandoned by her husband.

To make matters worse, his mother was paralysed and had 4 kids depending on her. They were also living in ramshackle hut made of raffia palms that looked ready to fall any minute.

This drove the good Samaritan into enrolling Utibe into school at Government Central Primary school Ibeno, Akwa Ibom state. He also revealed that Davido reached out and has promised to sort out the accommodation for his fan, Utibe and his family.

The promise has been fulfilled! See more photos of the home below.

Princess Diana Opens Up About Her Marriage

A third extract from Princess Diana’s recordings of the despair she felt in her marriage has been released. Princess Diana became depressed before her marriage to Prince Charles, partly because of his relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles and also because she felt unaccepted within the royal family. It continued after the wedding and she felt miserable and overwhelmed because she was not given time to adapt to her new role but was expected to know what to do overnight.

To cope with the despair, she began to record her thoughts for author Andrew Morton to write about her in the book, Diana: Her True Story, but she gave it on the condition that her involvement must be made secret.

In the transcripts recently released, the late Princess recalled her stay at Sandringham in January 1982 when she was four months pregnant with Prince William and how she threw herself down the stairs just so she could get her unattentive husband’s attention but in spite of that she still did not get him to pay attention to her.

She said: “When I was four months pregnant with William I threw myself downstairs, trying to get my husband’s attention, for him to listen to me. I had told Charles I felt so desperate and I was crying my eyes out. He said I was crying wolf. ‘I’m not going to listen,’ he said. ‘You’re always doing this to me. I’m going riding now.’ So I threw myself down the stairs. The Queen comes out, absolutely horrified, shaking — she was so frightened. I knew I wasn’t going to lose the baby (though I was) quite bruised around the stomach. When he came back, you know, it was just dismissal, total dismissal. He just carried on out of the door.

“I knew what was wrong with me, but nobody else around me understood me. I needed rest and to be looked after inside my house and for people to understand the torment and anguish going on in my head. It was a desperate cry for help. I’m not spoiled — I just needed to be allowed to adapt to my new position. I don’t know what my husband fed her (the Queen). He definitely told her about my bulimia. And she told everybody that was the reason why our marriage had cracked up, because of Diana’s eating, and it must be so difficult for Charles.

The late Princess of Wales also spoke of a time when she fainted at a public event with her husband and while others ran around to revive her, he walked off then later berated her for embarrassing him so when she could have fainted quietly behind closed doors. She said that Prince Charles’ father, Prince Philip was sympathetic to his son and that during an argument between Diana and Charles, Philip told his son that he was free to go back to his bachelor habits if his marriage to Diana doesn’t work after five years.

Diana said: “It was at the Expo (visit to Expo ’86, a world transport and communication fair in Vancouver) where I passed out. I had never fainted before in my life. We’d been walking round for four hours, we hadn’t had any food and presumably I hadn’t eaten for days beforehand. When I say that, I mean food staying down. I remember walking round, feeling really ghastly. I didn’t dare tell anyone I felt ghastly, because I thought they’d think I was whingeing. I put my arm on my husband’s shoulder and said: ‘Darling, I think I’m about to disappear’, and slid down the side of him. Whereupon David Roycroft and Anne Beckwith-Smith, (royal aides) who were with us at the time, took me to a room.

“My husband told me off. He said I could have passed out quietly somewhere else, behind a door. It was all very embarrassing. My argument was I didn’t know anything about fainting. While Anne and David were bringing me round, Charles went on around the exhibition. He left me to it. I got back to the hotel and blubbed my eyes out.

Diana spoke of Charles being insensitive to her needs, even when others noticed and warned him. She said he forced her to go out even when she was too weak to make it. He simply made her take a pill to shut her up.

“Basically, I was overtired, exhausted and on my knees because I hadn’t got any food inside me. Everyone was saying: ‘She can’t go out tonight, she must have some sleep.’ Charles said: ‘She must go out tonight —otherwise there’s going to be a sense of terrific drama and they are going to think there’s something really awfully wrong with her.’ Inside me, I knew there was something wrong with me, but I was too immature to voice it. A doctor came and saw me. I told him I was being sick (making myself sick). He didn’t know what to say because the issue was too big for him to handle. He just gave me a pill and shut me up. I just felt miserable. I shut my friends out because I didn’t want to pull them in on it. I would be too embarrassed to ask them to come in for lunch. I couldn’t cope with that. I would be apologising the whole way through lunch. My mother tried to give me Valium. Someone else tried to take me off it. I never actually took it.

Diana further disclosed that there were many forces pulling her and she had no idea which way to turn. She said she did not have a say, even as regards things that concerned her. Even the therapists chosen for her, she had no say in that. She rarely had conversations with her husband because he did not pay attention and when they did, it ended in tears on her part. She said there were times she tried to cut her wrists

She said: “I did take criticism hard, because I tried so hard to show (the Royal Family) that I wasn’t going to let them down. But obviously that didn’t come across strongly enough at that point. We had a few trying-to-cut-wrists, throwing things out of windows, breaking glass (she once threw herself against a glass display cabinet at Kensington Palace). I gave everybody a fright. I couldn’t sleep. I just never slept. I went for three nights without any sleep at all. I had no fuel to sleep on.”

Diana said Prince Charles started to get very jealous and even said bad things about her to their young son’s hearing. She said her son William, then three-years-old told her that she was the most selfish person and when she asked him where he heard that he said his father said so.

“Once, (some years later) William and I were in the swimming pool at Highgrove and I was telling him off, and William turned around to me and said: ‘You’re the most selfish woman I’ve ever met. All you do is think of yourself.’ And I was so stunned. I mean, this is seven years ago (in 1985, when William was three). I said: ‘Where did you hear that?’ ‘Oh, I’ve often heard Papa saying it.’ The one thing I’ve always prided myself on — if I may be so bold — is that I’ve never been a selfish person. But Charles was always telling me I was being selfish, and I sort of believed it.

“(When I danced on stage with Wayne Sleep at the Royal Opera House at an event for the Friends of Covent Garden) Charles was horrified. He said I was too thin. Inside the system, I was treated very differently, as though I was an oddball — and I felt I was an oddball, and so I thought I wasn’t good enough. But now I think it’s good to be the oddball — thank God, thank God, thank God! I had so many dreams as a young girl that I wanted and hoped — this, that and the other, that my husband would look after me. He would be a father figure and he’d support me, encourage me, say: ‘Well done’, or ‘No, it wasn’t good enough’. But I didn’t get any of that. I couldn’t believe it. I got none of that. It was role reversal. He ignores me everywhere. Ignored everywhere, and have been for a long time. But if people choose to see that now, they are a bit late in the day. He just dismisses me. He told a lot of people the reason why the marriage was so wobbly was because I was being sick the whole time. They never questioned what it was doing to me.

For a very long time, Diana’s family didn’t know what she was going through until her sister Jane came to visit her one day, five years into her marriage. Jane noticed a cut on her chest and thighs and asked Diana what caused it. After much interrogation, Diana said that the night before, she had wanted to talk to her husband about something but he wouldn’t listen so she picked up his penknife and scratched herself down her chest and both thighs. In spite of all the blood, she said Charles showed no reaction.

Anthony Joshua Wants To Fight Wladimir Klitschko In Nigeria

Anthony Joshua’s boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn has said that the 27-year-old is open to the idea of fighting in Nigeria.
Speaking to iFL TV, Hearn said: “I think Nigeria is probably one of the front-runners.

“People have this perception that Nigeria is a place that makes fire by rubbing twigs together. It’s a very powerful economy with a huge middle-class sector and actually, it’s a country that has a number of major events already – particularly pop music concerts.

“The infrastructure is there. Obviously, it’s difficult for us because there’s never been a major fight before – but that’s challenging. I like that.” AJ has hinted that he would be open to fighting in Nigeria, especially as he spent so time there as a child.

The heavyweight boxer also has a tattoo of the country on his arm and believes that it makes people relate to him. “When you are in sport you become a representation of people.

“I’ve got it [an outline of Nigeria] tattooed on my arm, so people can relate to me. I don’t know if [a fight there] will happen.” If, and at the moment it’s a BIG if, Joshua/Klitschko does take place in Africa, it would echo another mega fight that happened on the night of October 30, 1974, the iconic Rumble in the Jungle bout between George Foreman and Muhammad Ali.

Widely regarded to be “arguably the greatest sporting event of the 20th century” Foreman/Ali took place in Kinshasa, Zaire, now the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and pitted former heavyweight champ Ali against George Foreman.

At the time, Zaire was ruled by Joseph-Désiré Mobuto, a dictator who wanted to project to the world that the land-locked African country was a forward-looking state and not the vicious and greedy dictatorship it actually was.

Mobuto was not pleased when Muhammad Ali decided to tell heavyweight champ Foreman that “My African brothers is going to boil you in the pot.”

Not sure that’s the image Mobuto was aiming for when he allowed the fight to take place, but there you go. The fight was the introduction of a new tactic by Ali, the iconic ‘rope a dope’ for which he is still remembered.

After taking a hell of a beating throughout the bout, Ali decided to go on the offensive once the giant Foreman had tired himself out, and then in a flurry of punches, sent ‘Big George’ to the canvas.

If Joshua-Klitschko do go to Africa and the bout is anywhere near as action packed as Zaire 1974, then Hearn is on to a winner

Donald Trump Tweets After Losing Travel Ban Ruling Again In Appeals Court

US President, Donald Trump has taken to twitter to react after the Ninth Circuit sitting in San Francisco has ruled against his revised travel ban, temporarily restricting travel from six Muslim-majority countries.

The administration has already sought a Supreme Court review of a similar decision issued last month by the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, in Richmond Trump has insisted that the measure is necessary to prevent possible terrorist attacks and protect national security.

In its opinion, the Ninth Circuit said it concluded that Trump “exceeded the scope of the authority delegated to him by Congress.” The judges also wrote that Trump’s order violates provisions that “prohibit nationality-based discrimination and require the president to follow a specific process when setting the annual cap on the admission of refugees.”

The decision, from a three-judge panel, was unanimous. It was issued jointly by Judges Michael Daly Hawkins, Ronald M. Gould and Richard A. Paez. All three were appointed by President Bill Clinton.
