The launch of the Big Brother Titans, a joint South African and Nigerian edition of the Big Brother franchise on Jan.15 kicked off the trends of the week with fans rooting for their favourite among the 24 housemates.

The reality TV show however generated arguments amongst audience who were divided on why the show should be suspended or postponed because of the forthcoming general elections.

Arome Victor, on Twitter said, “This programme should have waited till after the elections…that is when it will be sweeter … a recap of the previous big brother is what would have been better till after the elections.”Another twitter user, @Emeka Innomaths wrote, “If the house mates are not allowed to go home and cast their votes on 25th Feb 2023, I will personally sue Big Brother. Youths are the determinant of this election, please uncage them from big brother for now.”On Monday, the 8th All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) which took place in Dakar, Senegal, began to trend as Nigerian artistes grabbed majority of the awards.

The 15,000-capacity Dakar Arena saw Nigerian artistes like David Adeleke (Davido), Ayodeji Balogun (Wizkid), Damini Ogulu (Burna Boy) and Adekunle Gold making Nigeria proud with multiple awards.On Tuesday, Nigerian actor, Kunle Remi, broke the trends table when he revealed how a Nigerian entertainer tried to lure him into homosexuality during his early days as an actor.

He revealed this in an interview he granted Honest Bunch, an online TV show, anchored by on-air-personality and comedian, Nedu.“They would pull up location in sophisticated vehicles and you would begin to question yourself if this person got higher than I got.

They would say they sell hairs and engage in brand influencing job, which we hardly see.“This lifestyle sends the wrong signal to young girls who are coming into the industry because they already had the mindset that you made your money from acting, whereas you have other things you do which they may never see or hear about,” Remi said.

Popular Nigerian music producer and record label executive, Don Jazzy, also reacted to the revelation, saying, “Now wey you don blow boss.

You for tell us the person o so that we can make sure he doesn’t molest innocent young upcoming people like that o.”On-Air-Personality, Nedu, also joined in shattering the table when he also revealed in a podcast how he walked in on two popular female celebrities sleeping with someone he knows in an Abuja hotel.

Nedu, however, made mention of no one in particular but social media platforms went agog after some users started pointing fingers at some politicians and popular skit makers.“Yes, I said it. I have walked in on two of your favorite influencers/celebrities in Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja.

They saw me and they expect me to respect them and I respect them enough not to mention their names,” he said.On Wednesday, Nigerian artiste, Ayodeji Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid, revealed that he would be going on a tour with David Adeleke (Davido), another popular Nigerian artiste.

Fans of the duo however read different meanings to this as some said that the former needed the latter to trend and that was the reason for the proposed tour.Daniel Regha, a social media influencer said, “Wizkid going on tour with Davido makes absolutely no sense;

He’s been snubb!ng Davido for years & doesn’t address Wizkid FC when they troll.“All of a sudden he plans a joint tour now that his starpower is dropp!ng? Why not with Burna? Davido shouldn’t accept this. No offense.”Comedian and social media critic, Mr Jollof, also knocked Wizkid for the tour, adding that he was trying to capitalise on Davido’s popularity.

He later apologised saying that his outburst was borne from a place of deep love for the artiste and that he did not mean it the way people had reacted.

‘Olu Jacobs Is Alive,’ Son Dispels Death Rumours

Nollywood veteran Olu Jacobs is alive, his family said Sunday amid raging social media death rumours and speculations.

The first son of the acting legend, Soji, told Channels Television that his octogenarian father is not dead as trumpeted online.

Soji shared a video with one of our correspondents wherein the iconic thespian was seen calmly seated while he had his greyed beards shaved.

During the activity, the older and frail-looking Jacobs was heard having a terse dialogue with his barber and those around him.

The “death” of Jacobs, 81, has been rumoured a number of times since November 2021 when his actress wife, Joke Silva, opened up on the health struggles of her husband. But the family has debunked such incidents at several times, posting videos and photos of their patriarch to discredit rumour-mongers.

Back in 2021, Silva, the 62-year-old respected actress and longtime wife of Jacobs, revealed that her husband has been battling with Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) for a couple of years, hence, his absence from movie screens.

“He is dealing with issues and it has been going on for a couple of years. It is known as dementia with Lewy Body. It is a degenerative disease that affects the brain and it is almost like a Parkinson’s type of disease, it affects the brain so you don’t see the shaking. It affects the person,” she had said in a Channels Television interview.

“It’s been hard on him because he doesn’t understand what is going on and also on family members as well. We have gone through it over the past couple of years and we thank God.

“We have gone through some times and situations recently that I wish I had the old you here so I don’t battle these times on my own but we are grateful for the moment of clarity. I miss the times we worked together,” she added.

The veteran actor, who won a lifetime achievement award at the Africa International Film Festival Awards in Lagos the same year, would later share a frail-looking picture of himself on his Instagram handle, attracting a cocktail of sympathy, best wishes and prayers from friends and fans.

The legendary actor has also been seen at selected social functions, aided by his loving wife while fans continue to hope for his recovery.
