I Am Not Under Pressure To Marry” – Actress, Funmi Awelewa



Funmi Awelewa, a popular Nigerian Actress , has said she is not under any pressure to get marry, revealing what her focus is on.

Awelewa stated that she has rather channeled her energy into building an enduring brand. In an interview with Sunday Scoop, she said,

There is no pressure to get married. My mother has many grandchildren. Why do I need to rush myself? I think everyone should only ask for grace and peace of mind. When one has money, one would be happy.

And when one is happy, one would have peace of mind. Some people are in the wrong marriages because they wanted to satisfy their parents. I cannot satisfy my parent and get into the wrong hands. I told myself I was not interested in an intimate relationship in 2020 and I didn’t want to give any man a chance.

It is amazing that I did just that. I had a lot of suitors but I didn’t want to be distracted. I wanted to put all my energy into my acting and business. I wanted to bounce back from my previous woes and I was determined to prove naysayers wrong. In my low moments, I heard a lot of spiteful comments but the way to prove them wrong is to keep moving ahead and stay focused.

I Am Not Under Pressure To Marry” – Actress, Funmi Awelewa

I have realized that it is better for people to tag you as being proud than for them to know everything about you. I respect my senior colleagues and I have been a good girl so far. I do not chase clout, compete, or do things for attention. I don’t want to be in the news all the time. The most important thing is my peace of mind. I try not to always please people. If one tries to attach oneself to people too much, one would lose respect. It is normal to have a competitive spirit but I don’t push things and I’m not in a hurry to do things.”

The actress also noted that some people were enduring abusive marriages because of financial gains. She added,

Some women are enduring abusive marriages because they are not financially stable. Why would you stay in an abusive marriage when you can leave? But, because they are financially incapacitated, they endure it sometimes for their children’s sake? I am convinced that money is important because it would give one respect. If one does not have money, one’s talent and creativity would go to waste. Some rich people only patronize people that are rich.

“I believe that money is important but it does not guarantee happiness. I believe there are some uncomfortable things that one would experience if one does not have money. People would not respect one and sometimes, one may be ridiculed and silenced when one wants to talk.

Without money, nothing can be achieved. One cannot lack money and be genuinely happy. When one has money, some people would assure one that they have one’s back, but if anything happens, they would abscond. The only way to help oneself and the people that matter to one is to be consistent.”

“Legbegbe welcome back” -Nigerians react as Toyin Abraham’s ex-lover Seun Egbegbe regains freedom after 3 years



Nollywood actress, Toyin Aimaku‘s ex-lover, Olajide Kareem, better known as Seun Egbegbe, has regained his freedom after spending roughly three years and six months in prison.

He was locked up on February 10, 2017, after obtaining money by false pretence from no fewer than 40 bureaus de change operators in different parts of Lagos from 2015 to 2017.

Seun Egbegbe, who was the boss of Ebony Production, allegedly swindled the BDC operators out of money by claiming that he had naira to change into foreign currencies and vice versa.

He had been arraigned by the police for a series of fraud involving N39,098,100, $90,000 and £12,550. Egbegbe and one Oyekan Ayomide were first arraigned on February 10, 2017, before Justice Oluremi Oguntoyinbo, on 36 counts bordering on advance fee fraud.

The charge sheet was subsequently amended twice, with the counts eventually increased to 40 and three other defendants – Lawal Kareem, Olalekan Yusuf and Muyideen Shoyombo.
In a recent development, Federal High Court, Ikoyi has found Egbegbe guilty of just one of the 44 Counts charges after reviewing his case.

Toyin Aimaku’s ex-lover was set free yesterday 11th October 2022. Justice Oluremi Oguntoyinbo declared that 43 of the 44 Count charges were dismissed because of a lack of witnesses to substantiate their claims.
She also denounced that the prosecuting team failed in the responsibility to produce evidence, to be backed with witnesses.

Lamenting that police tampered with the money recovered from the suspects, Justice Oguntoyinbo also ruled that all the money recovered from Egbegbe as evidence should be returned to him.
Nigerians welcomed Seun Egbegbe back after spending three years in prison with hard labour. Some reactions are shown below:

dhbwholesalesenterprises said, “iPhone 1 legbe gbe gbe welcome back, now iPhone is up to 14 waka jeje ooo

yendishomebargains said, “Guy will come out and see that the world he was trying to please and flaunt for has left him behind , the world doesn’t really care , just try and live well”.
iam_igbinedionsammy said, “Police tampered with the money recovered from the suspects. Is anyone surprised? Certainly not me. Its the Nigerian Police in all its thieving glory”.
dattechguy said, “iPhone 1 legbegbe, Toyin Abraham your ex boo is back”.
