How My Father’s Death Affected My Childhood, Education – Osita Iheme ‘Pawpaw’



How My Father's Death Affected My Childhood, Education - Osita Iheme ‘Pawpaw’

Multiple award winner actor, Osita Iheme better known as ‘Pawpaw’ has in a tweet on Twitter revealed a story about his life.

Pawpaw stated that he could not recall exactly when he stopped growing but that he just grew up to see himself like this and one thing he knows from his young age is that his dear father died.

“I was born normal but then stopped growing. I was born in the early 80s. I mark my birth every 20th of February. I was a normal baby when I was born. I can’t say that this was when I stopped growing but I just grew up to find myself like this.

“I can’t question God but I keep working hard to become somebody in life. I lost my father at an early age under mysterious circumstances. With my Daddy I know my academic ambitions would have been realised up to PhD level and so many other things I wanted to do if he were alive today.

“It really saddens my heart though. Recalling the sad event leading to the untimely death of my dear father, I was very young then. I can’t really say much about him because I was still a baby when he passed on.

“From what I learnt, he was a trader who travels a lot and was into merchandising. He made sure that his children were well brought up. He raised us with a good moral upbringing and the fear of God. He was that kind of father. He was a tall man.

“I just grew up to find myself like this. I just found myself like this and I can’t question God but I keep working hard to become somebody in life. Definitely my mother must have been worried about my growth but what can she do? It has happened and she had to accept the situation the way it was.

“We are five children in the family including a girl and four boys. I am the last born. Two of my siblings are based in Europe, while the other two are importers. The only lady is working with an oil company.

“Raised in Aba: “My mother was very hardworking and determined. When I lost my father, she raised us alone. She single-handedly took care of everybody like a man would. She did everything to make sure that I become something in life and I thank God today that she is not disappointed.

“She is dedicated and hardworking. We were young when our father left us but she ensured that we didn’t feel his absence so much. She was just a trader. My childhood was rough. Like I said earlier, I lost my dad at a young age.<

“The kind of environment where I grew up, kids were expected to be up and doing and become survivors. Being streetwise in Aba prepared me for a great life ahead. The kind of orientation I got from that phase of my life taught me that even when there is no job employment, there are a lot of things one can lay one’s hand on and touch good money at the end of the day.

“If I can survive in Aba, then I can survive anywhere else. I schooled in Aba at College Primary School and National High School. I am currently in year one studying Computer Science at the University of Lagos (UNILAG).

“I am in school now because if I had gotten the backing I wanted as a kid, I would have pursued my education up to the level of Ph.D. I was supposed to study Law; it is one course of study I love so much. Of course, I have played the role of a Lawyer in Criminal Law.”

Shanty Town: Mike Bamiloye Hits Hard At Nollywood Actors



Mike Bamiloye Hits Hard At Nollywood Actors

By John Michael Ojo
Veteran movie producer and actor, Mike Bamiloye has raised concern over the alarming rate of nudity among actors and actresses in  Nigerian home videos.

The Mount Zion Ministries founder who expressed worry  following the recent release of ‘Shanty Town’, where actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo popularly known as RMD and Nancy Isime played a role which many have described to be in contrast with the Nigeria Censored Board, urged filmmakers to be cautious of the role they play as it can have a negative impact on their immediate families and the society at large.

Taking to his Instagram account on Thursday, Bamiloye wrote:

Dear Movie-Maker,
You think you are doing great movies?
You think you are making money?

Dear Movie Actor!

You have acted in many Movies in Nigeria and all your achievement in life has been that
You have Kissed several ladies and romanced many girls on film set,
The roles you love to play in movies are roles where Men have to kiss you and where you have to play love roles.
My Dear Movie Actor!
Honorable Nollywoodian!
How many Ladies have you kissed on movie sets?

How many Actors have done love scenes with you in Movies?
Different Mouths have Kissed your mouth in the name of being Professional!
You have been Directed by Lustful Directors to romance Ladies on Film set before More than twenty people who are behind the Camera.

Unless the Lord intervenes!

Many Marines Spirits have played Love Scenes with many Men and sealed their fate for life!
Many men have donated their destinies on the altar of wicked marine spirits operating as actresses on Movie Sets.

Your Half Nude actress have polluted the heart of our young children!
Your scantily dressed Actresses have manipulated the mindsets of our youths!
Male Actors with Madmen hairstyles and body full of Tattoos have changed the focus of our young ones!

May God rescue us from this Powerful Tool of Manipulation!” Mike Bamiloye.

Phyno Reveals Difference Between Polygamy, Baby Mamas



Phyno Reveal The Difference Between Polygamy, Baby Mamas

By John Michael Ojo
Popular award-winning Nigerian rapper, Chibuzor Nelson Azubuike better known professionally as Phyno, has stated that there is a wide margin between those who practice polygamy and those who unintentionally have children out of wedlock.

Phyno disclosed this in a recent interview with a local news outlet where he said polygamy is when one decides to legally marry a second wife while referring to  ‘situation’ as home breaking.

The ‘Fada Fada’ crooner, added that celebrities are often misjudged when they have children out of wedlock as most people see such celebrities as polygamists.

Phyno however encouraged those who have been caught in the web of  ‘situation’ to own up and take full responsibility for the child/children involved.

He said; “Homes breaking is not polygamy, polygamy is when someone willingly says ‘I’m going to marry two wives,’ some people are caught in a situation and you can’t call that polygamy.  So, let’s be clear, Muslims practice polygamy.

“It can happen to you; it can happen to anyone. If you are caught in a situation, you have to stand up as a man and take responsibility for your child, you can’t call that polygamy. We always have to be clear on this because people come out to this.

“Polygamy is when I say I’m going to marry more than one wife, that’s polygamy. Situation happens to people and they are always unplanned, you called that polygamy.”
