Celebrities are human just like you and I, blood still flow in their veins. Whether it’s a little exaggeration, unintentional dishonesty or whatever you call it, these ones are not immune from lying. The sad part for them is this: Whatever they do is scrutinized in the public and most of them believe in the mantra fake it till you make it. The pressure to belong drives them to hyping their realities.
In no particular order, we take a look at the 5 unforgettable lies ever told by Nigerian entertainers.
- Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz:”I am not dating Teebillz”
No one truly knows if Tiwa Savage has reconciled with Teebillz, but years back she denied ever dating him when he was still her manager. When asked about her relationship with Teebillz, she said:“I am not engaged and I am not dating Tee Billz. He is just my manager. The story that I am having an affair with him is mere rumour; we are not dating.” Our dear mummy Jamal denied it blatantly.
- Wizkid- “Ni Ojuelegba dem no my story”– Wizkid
Singers don’t just use their songs to entertain; they also exaggerate in their songs in order to make it more believable.
In Davido’s Fans Mi, he said:” I remember when I had no money in my bank account”.
Is that true Davido? We have always known you to be an Omo Baba Olowo. Perhaps the only time he didn’t have money in his bank account was when he didn’t own an account. In the same vein, self -proclaimed star boy, Wizkid sang in Ojuelegba:“Ni Ojuelegba dem no my story”. How many Ojuelegba residents truly know the story of Wizkid’s rise to fame?
- Oge Okoye- Dog theft scandal
The actress wrote on Instagram:”Yiipeeee!!! My new babies just arrived.” Though the post has been deleted off her page, but the picture has gone far beyond her imagination. Kenya Moore’s fan page @KenyaMooreDaily – called out Oge Okoye whom they tagged as: ‘Some lady in Africa’.
According to them:”Some lady in Africa took a screen shot of King and Twirl (as called by Kenya) from Kenya’s page and she’s claiming them as hers.”
However, Oge’s fans expressed their anger towards her for claiming Kenya Moore’s dogs as hers. Read their comments below.
- Tonto Dikeh- “I lied about the gifts I flaunted on social media”
It is no longer news that Tonto Dike’s marriage to Oladunni Churchill is in turmoil. The pretty actress recently made a shocking revelation about some of the gifts she flaunts on social media. According to her, the luxury gifts she has been flaunting on social media like a Lexus LX 570 SUV and also an iPhone 7 rose gold were not bought by her husband. She stated that she made her platform to make him, who he is today.
Hear her: “Because I posted stuffs saying my ex-husband bought for me doesn’t make it true.. I used my platform to lie to make him the man he is today…so don’t come at me with the bullshit of enjoying this man’s money..I have not started talking, I have not started talking, I will bare it all but there is time for everything. I care now for the system because I am no longer naive, I’m a mother, who wants to live long for my child.. I am not a saint and cheating isn’t the only reason I took the forever walk.”
- Skales: ”The only competition I have is Dangote”
Skales is undoubtedly a talented artiste, but when you make a loose statement like the one above, we begin to doubt your intergrity. Skales who is yet to conquer the Nigerian music, said in the song Emergency:” The only competition I have is Dangote”.
Haba! Skales you still have competition in the industry like Davido, Wizkid, Runtown and others. Dangote is way above your league
