REVEALED: How Mo Abudu And FFK’s Ex-Wife, Yemisi Wada Became Bitter Enemies



  • Untold Story of Betrayal,treachery, backstabbing And Scam

Popular media entrepreneur, Mo Abudu, is presently in the eye of the storm.

It was exclusively revealed that the media personality has been lamenting about her loss and pains ever since the libel suit she instituted against her erstwhile friend, Yemisi Wada was thrown out of a Lagos High Court on Friday, July 12.

Yemisi Wada runs a reputable NGO, Havens Children that caters for the poor and physically challenged, while Mo Abudu runs a media-based organisation, EbonyLife TV.

Close sources disclosed that Mo Abudu was warned against instituting a law suit against Yemisi, but she allegedly refused to heed the warning.

She was even reported to have boasted that she would reduce Yemisi to a nonentity for daring to expose her as a fraud.

Mo Abudu was said to have filed the lawsuit against her former friend after she was allegedly released from the custody of the Economic Financial Crimes Commission EFCC having been reportedly arrested and questioned for misappropriation of funds, generated through “Benefit Concert” held in January 2009.

She was said to have demanded for N200million damages over the “libelous” publication against her.

According to Justice Oyekan Abdullahi, who presided over the case, the publication in question made no claims that could constitute defamation; he went further to advise both plaintiff and accused to go and settle their differences as friends.

We gathered that it was an elated Yemisi Wada that took to the social media to celebrate the outcome of the judgement in her favour.

She insisted in her post that she had obtained victory for the children, who never benefited from the supposed shelter that was to be built for them by Mo Abudu, adding that she was delighted that the children lived to see someone stand up and fight for them.

Also, Yemisi Wada was emphatic in her claim that there was never a friendship between her and Mo Abudu.

She also requested that the funds misappropriated by the EbonyLife TV boss should be retrieved and invested in giving the destitute children a befitting shelter.

Mo Abudu also took to her Instagram handle to lament about being backstabbed, “It’s not every dog that barks in the market that you answer”, she wrote.

Investigation by First Weekly Magazine revealed that the once chummy relationship between Mo Abudu and Yemisi Wada became frosty due to treachery and backstabbing.

It was gathered that Abudu snatched a project owned and nurtured by Wada’s NGO.

She reportedly hosted “Benefit Concert” to raise money to build shelter for the destitute in Lagos.

The concert was said to have yielded hundreds of millions in naira, and it was revealed that the Lagos State Government, under former governor Babatunde Fashola, pumped heavy resources into the project as well.

It was however, revealed that Mo Abudu ended up building the proposed shelters in the sky.

The funds were alleged to have found their ways into her personal pockets.

Sources stated that Mo Abudu ignored the advice of those who told her to put the funds into the purpose for which they were proposed for.

We were informed that angry at this display of disregard for accountability and integrity on Mo Abudu’s part, Yemisi filed a petition to the EFCC, inviting the anti-graft body to investigate the matter.

Consequently, Mo Abudu was said to have been invited, questioned and detained for a couple of days, and she was said to have filed a lawsuit against Yemisi Wada after her release.

Sources also disclosed that Mo Abudu once had an affair with the controversial former Minister of Aviation, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode, who was formerly married to Yemisi Wada.

We gathered that this never went well with their mutual friends, who frowned at this act of betrayal.

The bickering between the two women was said to be so messy that even Fani-Kayode confided in some people that he wondered why his former wife would not get over his affair with Mo Abudu since she has since re-married.

Exclusive Details of How US Embassy Cancelled Zlatan’s Visa Over EFCC Case



These are indeed not the best of times for Omoniyi Temidayo Raphael, also known as Zlatan Ibile, who is widely famous for his catchphrase, “Kapachumarumarichipaco”. Zlatan has become inconsolable since his visa, which had been issued by the embassy of the United States of America in Nigeria, was withdrawn the same day.

Zlatan is an associate of Azeez Fashola, the controversial wave-making artiste, Naira Marley. It was reliably gathered that he had planned to travel to the US on a musical tour that had been planned and sealed by a top music promoter.

It will be recalled that last May, some officials of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC, had arrested Zlatan, alongside embattled Naira Marley, Rago and Gucci Branch over issues bordering on internet fraud.

Last year, EFCC had launched Operation Cyber Storm, which is aimed at curbing the activities of Internet fraudsters.
Over 150 suspects have been reportedly arrested across the country.

It was gathered that Zlatan and his gang of friends were intensely quizzed by the operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), while they were being detained, following their arrest.

Few weeks later, Zlatan had visited the US Embassy office in Lagos to process a visa. He was issued the visa quite all right. But his joy was short-lived. Sources stated that just as Zlatan was about to leave the premises of the US embassy, he was called back and his visa was surprisingly withdrawn on the directives of the authority of the embassy.

“Zlatan was just unlucky. He had been issued the visa and he was about to leave the premises of the embassy, when the attention of the embassy was drawn to the fact that he was on the list of those that should not be given visa until further notice as directed by the EFCC.

“With that, his fate was sealed and he was asked to submit his international passport for some “verifications” and the visa was removed with the speed of light to his bewilderment,” said a reliable source.

The development is reported to be a setback to the talented artiste, who had been scheduled to perform in many states in God’s own country and “launch himself into international reckoning.”

It will be recalled that Zlatan, Rago and Gucci Branch were released a couple of days after their arrest. However, Naira Marley was charged and arraigned in court by the EFCC. He was later granted bail after his arraignment.

His arrest and arraignment were said to be in connection with his statements on social media which glorified internet fraudsters, popularly called Yahoo Boys.

Coincidentally, Naira Marley released the official video of his hit track, ‘Am I A Yahoo Boy’ featuring Zlatan shortly before his arrest.

Naira Marley, during an Instagram live session, urged Nigerians to pray for internet fraudsters (Yahoo boys) saying they are the reason money circulates to the common man.

He said: “All you guys, all the money in your pockets, all the money you spend, you think it’s the government that is making the money go round?”

The video has since stirred reactions from Nigerians who described Marley as a disgrace and bad example to young Nigerians.

The singer is popular for his 2017 hit song titled ’Issa Goal,’ Am I A Yahoo Boy, and his latest hit, ‘Soapy’

EXCLUSIVE: K1 The Ultimate Unveils New Wife At Ibadan Party + His Love Affair With Aramide Adenle, Their Secret Daughter and more



  • His Love Affair With Aramide Adenle, Their Secret Daughter
  • Spends Over N15Million At Mother-In-Law’s Burial

The King of Fuji Music, Alhaji Ayinde Wasiu Marshall aka K1 The Ultimate has fallen in love again.

This time around, the subject of his love interest is said to be Alhaja Tayelolu Amokeade Aramide Adenle (aka Aramite).

In her early 30s, Aramite, we were told, is a fashion designer based in Ibadan.

First Weekly Magazine gathered that the affair between K1 and Aramide began over five years ago, and that it has produced a daughter.

Sources disclosed that the lovers are more or less married, and that K1 tells anyone who cares to listen that Aramite is his last Bus Stop love wise.

Some of the reasons K1 reportedly gave for loving his new “wife” is that she is industrious, accommodating, humble and resourceful.

It was gathered that when Aramide had her daughter, K1 sent his personal clerics (Alfas) to perform the naming ceremony.

Aramide is reported to be more visible in the life of the Fuji king than any of his other women and Baby Mamas.

Although the Fuji lord is known to have a reputation for falling in and out of love with women on a regular basis, he is said to be determined to stick to Aramide for a very long time to come.

To prove the sincerity of his love, K1 reportedly publicly declared his love for his new wife at a party recently.

The event was the burial ceremony of Aramite’s mother, Alhaja Tayelolu Apinke Omojekeo Adenle, who died on April 11, at the age of 74.

Tagged with the hashtag, #ApinkeStillLives, the party, which took place on Friday August 23 at Daylan Events and Conference Centre, Ibadan, Oyo State, allegedly had the indomitable presence, strong bearing and full support of the Fuji King.

K1 was reported to have left no one in doubt that he was the Chief Host and Principal Financier of the burial party.

Sources disclosed that K1 injected over N15 million into the preparation, planning and hosting of the party.

It was gathered that the veteran musician was on the stage to perform for the guests, and that he also invited his close friends, fans and many prominent dignitaries to honour him in hosting a deserved farewell party for his his mother-in-law.

Sources disclosed that choice drinks like Champaign and vintage wine were in excess supply, and so were mouth-watering continental and local dishes.

Some guests informed First Weekly Magazine that even few hours into midnight, hot Chinese food was still being served at the party.

One of the major side attractions at the party was when K1 reportedly declared his undying love for Aramite and pledged that he would never forsake her.

Giving an explicit account of what transpired at the party, some guests, who witnessed the romantic display between the Fuji lord and his current wife, informed First Weekly Magazine that it was obvious that K1 is hopelessly in love with Aramite.

“He was all over her, declaring his love for her and smothering her with kisses,” they told us.

Interestingly too, some of K1’s former lovers, such as popular Yoruba actresses – Bisi Ibidapo-Obe, Dayo Amusa and several female guests were allegedly snubbed and given a cold shoulder by the Fuji King at the event.

However, Tayo Odueke, aka Sikiratu, another Yoruba actress was said to have got more than a passing attention from K1, who we gathered kept touching her cheeks, while praising her.

But sources maintained that K1’s major focus was Aramide, and that he was determined he wasn’t going to be distracted by the other women at the party.

The show of love reached a crescendo when K1, reportedly began to spray Aramide’s siblings; Anikky Nice and Kehinde (Aramite’s twin brother).

“When it was the turn of his lover to dance, K1 went gaga and the entire hall erupted in a volcanic response.

“After spraying millions of naira notes on Aramide, KI brought out ten bales of ten thousand Canadian dollars ($10,000) and began to spray his wife, sealing his action with intermittent kisses.

“He was about to dip his hand on the fifth bale, when his boys, KC and Gaji cautioned him to press the pause button on his spraying spree,” said a source, who was at the event.

Source further disclosed that K1 resorted to hurling insults at some of the male guests, whom he accused of contending for Aramite’s affection with him.

He allegedly addressed them in derogative terms, calling them “Wosodemi” (store keepers).

A top shot of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in Lagos, Musiliu Ayinde Akinsanya (MC Oluomo), was alleged to have stormed the party with his friends.

Oluomo was fingered as one of those “Wosodemis,” as he is said to be romantically involved with Aramite.

He also reportedly came fully prepared with a couple of Ghana-Must-Go bags loaded with money, which he had planned to spray Aramite at the party.

He was reported to have recoiled into his shell when he got the signal that K1 wasn’t planning to share the spotlight with anyone that night.

We were informed that the party ended on a blissful note as K1 and Aramide reportedly proved to all their guests and friends that their love had come to stay.

Popular Plastic Surgeon, Ayo Aranmolate In Soup!…How Abuja Lawyer Died In His Care After Failed Buttock Enlargement Surgery



Popular Lagos-based plastic surgeon, Dr. Ayobami Rasheed Aranmolate, the Executive Medical Director at Grandville Medical and Laser, is presently in the eye of the storm. His presently state of predicament is as a result of a failed buttock enlargement surgery he performed on an Abuja-based lawyer and entrepreneur, Enobong Akpabio,

FIRSTWEEKLY gathered that Enobong died on Thursday, 15 August 2019, from complications arising from a liposuction surgery at Aranmolate’s private medical facility in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja. 

The death of the very promising young businesswoman has now become a subject of controversy within the society and social media sphere. Not only is Enobong’s death painful, the circumstances which led to the tragic incident is causing a lot of outrage among her friends and family members. 

According to sources, Enobong, who runs Food Arena, a food catering business in Abuja, was in sound health before she went for the operation, which ultimately claimed her life.

Aranmolate, the surgeon, who performed the buttock enhancement surgery on Enobong, came under attack, after he posted on his social media page, advertisement containing gory pictures of a ‘’successful surgical procedure’’ which was mistaken as the picture of the deceased.

Infuriated by the pictures, friends and family of Enobong, as well as concerned Nigerians, launched an attack on Aranmolate and his clinic, which boasts of strong celebrity clientele. They expressed disappointment that instead of a statement of remorse about her death, Aranmolate, insensitively, resorted to using her pictures for advertisement. 

In his defence, Aranmolate explained that Enobong had surgery in his facility on that tragic Thursday in August, but she lost blood, which led to blood transfusion. He added that during the blood transfusion, the deceased reacted to the blood and the blood was stopped and sent to the blood bank for a re-check.

Aranmolate explained that he noticed that the deceased would need more monitoring and care, which necessitated her being transferred to an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) where she died three days after her surgery.

However, some aggrieved friends of the deceased, have dismissed Aranmolate’s submission. They blamed him for Enobong’s death. According to this group of friends, “The doctor performed three surgeries on the deceased on the same day, with little or no adequate facility. They claimed Aranmolate gave Enobong a blood transfusion that reacted because it was not compatible. He also reportedly deposited fats in her lungs and this led to her inability to breathe. According to an aggrieved source, “The oxygen that was supplied to enable Enobong to breathe refused to work. The doctor and his team punctured Enobong’s blood vessel and left her to bleed to death.” 

But Aranmolate insisted that doctors do not have control over blood, as it is what the blood bank provides after the patient’s samples have been sent to the blood bank for cross-matching that is used. 

What seems to have furthered angered Enobong’s friends and family the more is the fact that Aranmolate has refused to show remorse ever since the tragic incident occurred. According to a family source, who spoke to FIRST WEEKLY on condition of anonymity, “Aranmolate is a quack surgeon. His license should be suspended, if not revoked. We want to advise ladies who rush to him and other quacks to undergo plastic surgery. Aranmolate in particular, should be investigated. He is so insensitive. Can you imagine that hardly had our sister died, than this quack doctor was showing off pictures of his wife and daughter, vacationing abroad on his Instagram page? How does he think the family and loved ones of the lady that died in his care will feel?, she asked rhetorically.

The remains of Enobong Akpabio were laid to rest on Tuesday 20 August, 2019, in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state.
