Toolz talks trauma of miscarriage: This time last year, I often cried myself to sleep

Published

Weeks after the arrival of her first child, Tolu ‘Toolz’ Oniru has spoken about the pain of suffering a miscarriage.

The on-air-personality, who welcomed her newborn mid-December, said she often cried herself to sleep after losing her first pregnancy.

Following the birth of her son, Toolz says she is excited to be a mother and that she is looking forward to raising her child.

She wrote: “This time last year, I would often cry myself to sleep thinking about the baby we lost, but now I can’t sleep because I can’t stop staring at the most precious gift God has given me this year….MY SON.

“I look at my little prince and I am in complete awe! I still can’t believe I’m a mummy. I can’t wait to teach him everything I know and learn so much from him too.

“I can’t wait to show him how much every inch of me loves him. I also can’t wait to “Patience Ozokwor” his future girlfriends.

Toolz said the “biggest lesson” she learned in 2018 is to never give up on God.

She wrote: “Since last year, we prayed, fasted and prayed some more for God to bless us with a healthy baby in 2018. Towards the end of the first quarter, I started to think that our prayers wouldn’t be answered in 2018. I stupidly got impatient and frustrated with God.

“One day in April, Captain came home and found me in bed crying my eyes out because I thought we wouldn’t have a child in 2018. Little did I know that as I was crying and getting upset and frustrated with God, I was actually already pregnant.

“While I was being weak and doubting Him, He had already answered our prayers!

“For our family, friends and every single one of you that remembered us in prayer….Thank you so very much. May God overwhelm you with incredible blessings this coming year.

“For women dealing with the loss of a child like I did last year, know that the story doesn’t end there. God has already completed your testimony, and I pray that you (just like me) will be celebrating sooner rather than later.

“For anyone waiting on God to answer their prayers, please remember that God’s delay isn’t His denial.”

Nicki Minaj and her boyfriend, Kenneth Petty are set to get married

On Monday, August 12, the 36-year-old rapper revealed on the new episode of her Queen Radio Show that she and boyfriend Kenneth Petty will be married in “about 80 days.”

She explained that she and Petty filed for the marriage license and they still had to pick it up and she was traveling, by the time she came back, they had to renew it again.

“From that time, you have 90 days to get married. That was about a week ago, so now I have about 80 days,” Minaj shared.

Nicki also said that she and Petty will celebrate their union with a small, intimate ceremony and will plan a big wedding later.

“I have to work on my album and I have a lot to focus on that I don’t want to do the big wedding now. We’ll do the big wedding later,” Minaj said.

“I’ll be married before my album comes out, but will have my wedding after the album comes out. Before the 90 days is over, yes, I will be married.”

“I’m very happy about that because my baby makes me so happy,” she added

Back in June, Nicki who started dating Petty in December 2018 confirmed they had gotten a marriage license.

“We did get our marriage license,” Minaj said on Queen Radio at the time. “I think I have what I was striving for, just happiness. It was so hard to get to a happy place. Now that I’m there, I don’t want to compromise that for anyone or anything.”

The couple met when Nicki was a 17-year-old living in Queens, and they rekindled their romance last year.

BBNaija housemate Khafi faces sack by MET Police as she’s being investigated after sex on the show

Published

on

Big Brother Naija housemate and Met Police officer, Khafi Kareem, 29, is being investigated for having sex on the show despite warning from her bosses not to take part.

A Met spokesman said last night: “A PC, attached to the Met’s transformation command, requested permission to take part in a reality television entertainment show in Nigeria. Permission was not given.

“The Met is aware the officer has since appeared on the show without authority.

“The Directorate of Professional Standards has been informed and will be carrying out an investigation into the circumstances.

“The Met does not support the officer’s appearance nor does she represent the Met whilst appearing on the show.”

The force added that any officer found to have breached police standards of professional behaviour could face misconduct proceedings.

The 29-year-old UK based, who was once a ‘poster girl’ for the promotion of female and black staff for Met Police and earns about £30,000 a year, was said to have forcefully left her job for the show.

It was also reported that the authorities made the move to start an investigation as she became the talk of the show after videos of her having sex with her love interest Gedoni went viral online.

Her TV appearances have left ­colleagues unimpressed. Speaking on the issue, an unnamed colleague told The SUN newspaper: “She’s a serving British police officer – it’s outrageous.

“She asked permission to go on the show but, when her request was refused, she went anyway.”

Another Met source said: “There should be no way back for her from this and her superiors will have to act.

“She fitted the mould perfectly for how the modern force wants to ­portray itself but seems to have got a bit too big for her boots.

“It’s hard to see how can she argue that she hasn’t brought the force into disrepute.”

Meanwhile, Khafi is currently up for possible eviction.
